Thank you

With closing of nominations last Friday, several prominent local politicians have followed through on their plan to retire.

Health and safety

Much of the phrase “health and safety” is made in the workplace but we think it is time homes and families adopt a clearer view of what it means to be safe and healthy. Families are immensely impacted when safety takes a backseat to fun.

Move on with hospice

Although the brakes were put on last week when Centre Wellington council failed to pass a motion supporting the new hospice project at Wellington Place, all is not lost.

Free labour

“Trustees still deadlocked on requiring police checks for volunteers” was a headline that caught our eye a few weeks back. 

Time for a change

If the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce intends to continue with its Awards of Excellence, it really needs to do some soul searching on its rules of engagement. What happened with the Citizen of the Year choice should never happen again.

Nod to the county

The last Thursday of every month county council is in session. That is the day proposed actions that affect residents’ lives in meaningful ways are decided.
