One of the crowd-pleasing musicians during the weekend's Dutch Mason Blues Festival in Bible Hill was Doyle Bramhall II from Texas. Bramhall II performed Saturday night at the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition grounds and was only one of numerous entertainers who kept thousands of people tuned in throughout the weekend.

Ten Day, Ten Festivals, One (Busy) Reporter.
Any Given Night January 30, 2015

 Editor's note: How does it feel to be homeless and what services are available for those who are? Those are two questions we wanted to find out as we sent out reporters for a day to experience homelessness. Truro reporter Ryan Cooke and New Glasgow reporter Kevin Adshade swapped coverage areas in search of answers. The shelters weren't aware ahead of time that they'd be coming and were not told that they were entertaining reporters, in an effort to keep the experience as real as possible. Our reporters made sure they weren't taking a place needed for someone else and a small donation is being made by The Truro Daily News to cover the costs associated with the stay at the local shelter. We hope you enjoy reading these stories.

Darrell Burris, an oil delivery driver with Wilson Fuels, is seen adding furnace fuel to a residence in Bible Hill. This is the peak season for consumption of both furnace and diesel fuels, a factor that tends to keep prices from decreasing too greatly during the winter months. HARRY SULLIVAN – TRURO DAILY NEWS
