Chagrin Falls, OH – When seeking to enhance your productivity at work, it’s natural to focus on skills you lack or need to improve. But according to a recent Gallup study into human behavior, you won’t gain any ground working on your weaknesses. Rather, you should be dedicated to maximizing your strengths.
Joan Nosal is a board-certified coach and the founder of T.R.I. Life Coaching where she helps her clients identify and explore their talents to develop their strengths and unleash their potential.
“The definition of a strength is a task you can complete to near perfect performance in a positive direction,” says Joan. “Developing your talents into strengths ensures your ability to work at near perfect performance every time.”
Joan helps her clients to uncover their talents through a unique assessment tool: Gallup StrengthsFinder.
Gallup StrengthsFinder outlines a person’s top five strengths from 34 unique talents. Joan says it’s important to know your strengths so you can further develop and refine them.
“How do you approach your life with power and edge? What are the resources you have to support yourself? What are your needs?” asks Joan. “We’re assessing how you think, feel and behave.”
As a Gallup Certified Strengths Performance Coach, Joan works with executives and leaders to learn about their strengths and enhance the application of their strengths.
“I don’t coach or train or present anything I haven’t lived. It’s authentic,” says Joan. “If I can influence people to live a life of satisfaction and positivity where they can be all they were created to be, that rocks my world.”

Dating all the way back to the early days of motorcycling, enthusiasts have always been drawn to the raw energy, speed and horsepower of racing. Throughout the first couple decades of the 1900’s, motorcycle racing was held on oval plank tracks, known as board tracks. The motorcycles which ran on these tracks were the ultimate in stripped-down powerhouses, with no brakes, and only a direct drive system in place of a transmission. Races were held all over the United States to the delight of crowds everywhere. Unfortunately, the danger of these races was all too real. After multiple horrific accidents resulting in the death of riders and spectators alike, board track racing was banned in the United States. While the machines survived, the sport of board tracking was seemingly gone forever; that is, until recently, when a group of enthusiasts have banned together to reinvigorate the lost art of board track racing. Held on dirt tracks instead of lumber ovals, the machines are still flying around in a display of raw power to the delighted smiles of crowds. This week, we at Classic Chrome have the pleasure of speaking with a few of the brave individuals keeping this high-octane sport alive and well. Interviewing Matt Walksler, noted builder, restorer, and award-winning racer, and Brittney Olsen, noted restorer and the only woman successfully competing in this dangerous sport!
For the first time in a long time, all three cities in Niagara County are having a mayor's race.
In Lockport, the folks there, are discussing the first announced candidate to run against the incumbent Mayor, Anne E. McCaffrey. Michael J. Pillot, a retired policeman who lost races for mayor of Lockport in 2007 and 2011, is trying again. It's still early so there may be others.
In North Tonawanda, people seem to be a little more tight lipped about a run against the incumbent mayor.
North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur G. Pappas is still on his political honeymoon.
Before becoming mayor, Pappas was on the North Tonawanda School Board for 17 years, including a decade as its president.
He was handily elected last November to fill the seat of alderman-at-large following the sudden death of Robert Clark, but after just two weeks as alderman he was tapped to become mayor when then Mayor Ortt resigned to become state senator.
Back at home we are starting to see how this year's campaign is shaping up. Alicia Laible, former Democrat City Committee Chairperson here in Niagara Falls is announcing her 2nd bid to run for Niagara Falls city Council.
Like it or not, the Modern Diposal contract is good for five years, this is no longer about Modern, this is about the city managing this service in a way that it is adequate, fair and cost-effective.
Now let's get to our guest former assemblywoman and now chairman of the board of USA Niagara development Corporation Francine DelMonte.

Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.
There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island. Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.
When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying. When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States. He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored. Finally the Times responded. They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue. The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story. He located about half a dozen. After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.
Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.
