Legendary Showman, Jim Conklin Passes

Legendary Showman, Jim Conklin Passes

  Jim Conklin – Carnival Owner, Innovator, Entrepreneur, Mentor, Showman, Historian, Husband, Father, and International Carnival/Midway Legend.  Born May 2nd, 1933 in Hamilton, Ontario – Died March 22nd, 2023 in Brantford, Ontario.At the conclusion of every carnival day at any fair, in any city, in any country, the signal to close the midway is when the lights on the Ferris Wheel go dark. Today, we as a worldwide industry shut off the Ferris Wheel lights for midway legend, Jim Conklin.  Jim was with us for 89 years, yet his legacy will last forever. The story sort of goes like this...The phone would ring at 2:00am, which was 4:00am Jim Conklin time, as time was no of consequence nor consideration to the non-stop creator. Great Jim Conklin concepts would trickle through the vast landscape of the Jim Conklin mind at all ...   [read more]

Carnival & Fair Buzz

  David, or as everyone knew him, “Rabbit“, died several days ago. Rabbit was way too young to die and it underscores the uncertainty of just how long any of us will be here. As news of his passing spread, I was taken back by the wide range of condolences that have poured in. Some were from friends and co-workers, but what really surprised me was the wide range of fair folks that knew and had special feelings for him. Rabbit didn’t have a mean bone in his body. He was kind and caring. He would help anybody do anything without a single thought of what wasin it for him. Rabbit assisted the show in many thankless ways. Everyday at opening time he would patrol the Midway as the “Uniform Police.” Ironically Rabbit did so in his beige shirt, brown vest, jeans and of course, his famous cowboy hat.

  This morning, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it met the FY23 statutory second half H-2B visa cap. February 27th was DHS' final petition receipt date.  While overall visa demand continues to outpace supply, one positive note from this year's filing process is that it appears more Group B applications were filed with DHS prior to the cap than in past years.     CAP RELIEF VISAS FOR RETURNING WORKERS: DHS will begin accepting petitions for the additional 16,500 returning worker visas on March 14th. Per regulation, DHS will accept petitions over a five-day window before determining if a lottery is necessary. We believe a lottery is unlikely and that DHS will thus continue to accept petitions until the supplemental cap is met. We expect most of Group C, Group D and possibly a minority of Group E employers to receive their returning workers from this supplemental visa release. DOL PROCESSING TIMELINEAs of Tuesday, ...   [read more]
