We have a new “feature” in the historic Prospect Hill Columbus Park district. The Public Bridge Authority made good on their plan to light up the Peace Bridge. A project that was announced by the authority last summer.

Sisti and Renourd

Dean Brownrout’s recent article on the Sisti-signed Renouard paintings (“Framed: Gone, But Hardly Forgotten,” April 9, 2009) brought back to life an uncomfortable controversy from years ago. In this controversy, Sisti supporters have argued that Mr. Sisti suffered from Alzheimers late in his life and may have accidentally signed his name to the work of other painters during this illness while others argue that the placing of Sisti signatures onto non Sisti works was deliberate and just simple out and out misrepresentation.

A To-Do List

The Niagara Experience Center should either be built on the Niagara Falls Redevelopment parcel or take over all or part of the Rainbow Center. This should also include a more energy efficient wintergarden as well as what was supposed to be included in the failed attempt at “Aquafalls” and the indoor waterfall that was scaled back from the renovations at Niagara Falls International Airport.
