    No Comments

    From WNED-AM 970 NEWS:

    On one side of Niagara Falls, state parks need $85 million in repairs while on the Ontario side millions of dollars are going into renovation of Old Fort Erie and the Laura Secord House.

    WNED’s Mike Desmond talked with the Chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission, Fay Booker, about the difference.

    This year, the commission will spend around $100 million (Canadian) on its capital and operating budgets, serving millions of visitors from Fort Erie to Niagara-on-the-Lake.

    The Ontario agency is set up to pay for itself by raising money and keeping it.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Wanted: Niagara Falls residents with a video camera to help capture the essence of their community on tape and share it with a large audience of public television viewers across Ontario and Western New York.

    No experience necessary.

    WNED Buffalo/Toronto has selected the Cataract City as the subject of the next in its series of Our Town documentaries.

    The show is intended to be a one-hour “video scrapbook” of the people, places and happenings in Niagara Falls as seen through the eyes of the people who live here.

    The station is looking to recruit 20-25 residents who have access to video camcorders to take a lead role in the project — everything from brainstorming topics to shooting video and helping narrate the final, edited product.
