The infectious sound of a child’s laughter is always music to my ears and to walk into a room full of excited, happy children at play, who have been given total freedom to delve elbow deep into ucky, yucky concoctions of their own making or just otherwise simply having fun, is one of the quickest ways to lighten a mood than I can think of. Shown above, doing what children do best, are Alexis Mayo and Capri Baird of the Head Start early childhood learning centre at the NSCC Truro campus, who were digging deep into a batch of cornstarch and vegetable oil during an educational play-a-thon held at the Best Western Glengarry.

One of the most interesting aspects of a reporter’s job, at least from my perspective, are the people that one encounters on a day-to-day basis and without fail, the one’s who top my favourites list are those down-to-earth, common folk who go about their lives in quiet fashion, without fanfare or seeking accolades for their accomplishments. And Masstown Market founder Eric Jennings, with whom I spoke just prior to his receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Truro and Colchester Chamber of Commerce last April, certainly fits into that category. Soft-spoken and unassuming, one would never gather from his demeanor as he moves about the market that Jennings was the foundation behind such a successful undertaking, which has grown from a 1,040 sq.-ft. fruit and vegetable stand in 1969 to the 30,000 sq.-ft. enterprise it is today.

Green with envy as I may have been, it was nonetheless a delight to participate in the celebration on Dec. 6 when 16 team members from the health services department at Parkland Truro (retirement living) happily accepted a $1-million cheque from an Atlantic Lotto representative. Seen in the first row, from left, are: Lucy O'Donnell, Connie Boutilier, Tara MacPherson, Wanda Kent, Charlene MacKenzie and Bonita Mills. Second row: Jean Purdy, Frank Melanson, Tanya Johnson, Reta Pynn, Shelley Brown, Wendy Lewis, Robin Legge, Twilla Barkhouse and Kathleen Logan. Missing from photo is Sherry MacAulay.

For Kenny Oliver, who was seen walking the streets of Truro last summer with Titus, a seven-foot-long Central American red tail boa constrictor, having a pet snake wrapped around his neck seemed perfectly normal. But for many of the people he encountered, the large boa was anything but. Nonetheless, from a reporter’s perspective, any assignment that deals with something new, different or even what may be termed as freaky to some, can add a little something to an otherwise run-of-the mill day.

School's out, it's time to play. So said the smiles on the faces of the young lassies pictured above who were busy playing in the snow outside of the Bible Hill Central Elementary School on a Friday afternoon in early January. The happy gang, shown from left, are: Molly Clark; Alexa Locke; Summer Purdy; Jenna Sullivan and Mariska Millman.

Walking out of my back door one sunny morn in July I nearly ran into two spotted fawns that had decided to drop by for a visit. In the process of snapping some shots on my i-Phone, I noticed that our resident tabby, Sketch, had also taken notice of the ‘intruders’ and had seemingly set himself up for guard duty. After a bit of a stare down with one of the fawns, Sketch watched with great interest as the pair moved around “his estate.” All was well, however, until the deer started to chew on some backyard tree leaves and then Sketch started moving forward. With that, their litte white tails sprang up and the two fawns tore off into the bush.

It is always fun to share in the excitement expressed by the young and that was certainly the case in late September when the Dalhousie AC Daycare Centre celebrated its 25th anniversary with the help of Dean David Gray, who turned over his tuba, Emily, to youngsters such as Ewan Price, 5, to have them give it a try. 

Each year, the reporters with the Truro Daily News take hundreds of photographs at various assignments. Here are Harry Sullivan's favourite photos he snapped for 2013.
