Thumbs up, thumbs down
End of winter is near
Anyone who has done a great deal of driving this winter will be thrilled to learn Shubenacadie Sam did not see his shadow on Feb. 2.
Sam came out of his home at the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park around 8 a.m. greeting a crowd of onlookers and predicting spring is on the way.
This famous groundhog has carried out the long-standing tradition of predicting spring’s arrival since 1987.
Dog attack a frightening experience for anyone
Everyone deserves to feel safe when taking a leisurely walking in public spaces.
Nuttby’s Edie Gorman had a frightening experience last week while walking her dog Cody, a Pomeranian, when a much larger, unleashed dog left its owner’s property and attacked her pet. Cody suffered severe internal injuries and is lucky to be alive.
County bylaws state no dogs are allowed to be loose and must be supervised, tied, fenced in, in a kennel or some other (containment).
It can be terrifying to have an unleashed dog, no matter how friendly its owner claims it to be, run towards you. Laws are put in place to protect people and their property from harm and it is important for everyone’s enjoyment they are observed.
Chasing a national title
Truro's Peter Burgess, mate Craig Burgess, second Jared Bent and lead Todd Burgess are competing at the Tankard provincial men's curling championship Wednesday to Sunday at Halifax Curling Club.
The foursome, coached by Jim Burgess, has a chance to earn a title and to represent the province in one of the most popular sporting events in Canada, the Brier national championship, next month.
We send these local curlers a huge wish for success. We’ll be rooting for you.
Lock your vehicles
Truro Police Service received numerous calls last week from people who claimed their vehicles had been rummaged through in various locations around the town.
Vehicles are easy targets for dishonest people who would take any opportunity to gain from someone’s misfortune.
People can take steps to protect themselves with the click of a button by locking their vehicles and by not leaving valuables inside that could be easily taken.
