Hundreds of fans lined up at Costco in St. Catharines Thursday evening to catch a glimpse of Canadian singer Jann Arden and get her autograph as she promoted a new album and book. Arden, who is adored not only for her music but her down to earth approach with fans, spoke a little about her memoir, Falling Backwards. “It’s a very candid funny look at life in the Prairies growing up in the 70s, which is the era of the crock pot,  the wagon wheel and The Carpenters.  You know, I tell stories that I would probably tell at the dinner table so it is very conversational and very easy to read.” CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO LINK TO FULL STORY.

Merrittville Speedway up for sale; owner says track in no danger of closingNIAGARA - Pete Bicknell has owned Merrittville Speedway for nine years – although many would suggest he owned it long before his name went on the deed.Now one of the most celebrated and successful drivers in Canadian stock car circles wants to concentrate on what he does best – building racers and beating everyone else to the finish line.Bicknell, with more than 400 feature victories in his career and a member of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame, has put the storied speedway in Thorold up for sale. Fans shouldn’t fret. It is in no danger of closing. Saving it from an uncertain fate is why he bought it back in 2002. If a new owner comes in, part of the deal will be that it remains a racetrack. If it doesn’t sell, Bicknell said he’s not looking to shut it down. But he’d like very much to get away from the day-to-day challenges of running a track – challenges he said don’t end when the racing season finishes for the winter.
