Taking a stand
Exeter Times-Advocate Editorial: No matter where you stand on the issue of industrial-sized wind turbines, you’ve got to hand it to those who oppose them — at least they’re getting involved and showing dedication to a cause.
Giving junk food the cigarette treatment
Chuck Kuepfer, Spin Cycle: We're always told that "everything in moderation" is the best advice, but with almost one-in-three children in the country considered overweight or obese it's clear that either self control or education about the evils of junk food is lacking.

Understanding of OPP's new 'transparent' billing is still pending "To add insult to injury wait until you start receiving overtime bills from the OPP. Wait until there is yet another force-wide hike in their salaries and benefits. I encourage you to Google the 'Ontario Provincial Police Block' and examine the conten"

An uphill battle
Elmira Independent editorial: This past weekend, Chemtura opened its doors to the public. While it was clearly a move designed to improve the chemical company's image in the community, it seems the open house may have failed in its purpose.
Unmask the cyber bully
Exeter Times-Advocate Editorial: We would like to think bullying victim Amanda Todd has received the compassion in death she never got while she was alive.
Time to unmask the cyber bully
Wingham Advance-Times editorial: We would like to think bullying victim Amanda Todd has received the compassion in death she never got while she was alive. But along with messages of sympathy and caring on a memorial Facebook page that has been set up, there are some unbelievably cruel statements.
What prorogation means for Ontario farmers
Listowel Banner / Minto Express editorial: On Oct. 15, the Ontario legislature was prorogued until further notice. Several bills that had reached various points in the legislative agenda (from first reading through to committee) are now abandoned. And while government operations – including regulation and spending – continue, all legislative reform initiatives will have to wait out a leadership race, and the resumption of the legislature.
McGuinty’s legacy
Elmira Independent editorial: McGuinty may well be remembered for not only resigning in the middle of his term, but for also proroguing the legislature while his party looks for a new leader.
A patriotic mural
Arthur Enterprise News editorial: Arthur’s new patriotic mural at the corner of Highway 6 and Wellington Road 14, on the north side of the Sussman’s building, is without a doubt one of the nicest murals to be found anywhere.
Nominate a future (or current) leader
St. Marys Journal Argus editorial: Any resident of Ontario, aged six to 17 years is eligible to receive an Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award.
Bigger is not always better
Listowel Banner editorial: E. coli 0157:H7 is not as much a mystery to us in this part of the country as it may be to others. Thanks to the Walkerton tainted water crisis a few years back, we know what is meant when a news story reports people have become ill from the bacteria. It means bloody diarrhea, emergency departments crowded with worried parents holding little kids too weak to hold up their heads, med evac helicopters landing and taking off every hour of the day and night, and the smell of bleach everywhere. It means worries over long-term effects like kidney disease, it means funerals, and it means a whole community in shock.
Giving recognition to our youth
Stratford Gazette editorial: This newspaper often features photos and stories about youth from Stratford and area. We're thrilled to report on the accomplishments of our young people.
Looking forward

Congratulations to Ramoth
Mount Forest Confederate editorial: Congratulations are extended to Ramoth Life Centre, the non-denominational, non-profit, charitable organization whose board of directors and staff quietly work behind the scenes, seeking no accolades or recognition, as they operate the Ramoth Pregnancy Centre and Ramoth House in Mount Forest.
A place for everyone
Elmira Independent editorial: In Elmira, seeing able-bodied children playing alongside those with disabilities is something that rarely happened before this magical summer.
Teachers need to unite their strategies
St. Marys Journal Argus editorial: Without question, history has shown that if workers can’t unite, the divide and conquer approach is a sure winner.
Raising money for recreation
Stratford Gazette editorial: Some big projects are on the horizon in Stratford, ones that will help shape recreation in the city. They're costly, and they'll require plenty of community support.
Thoughts on Omar Khadr
Wingham Advance-Times/Exeter Times-Advocate editorial: On one side are those convinced Omar Khadr was, and is, a terrorist, proud at having thrown the grenade that killed American Army medic Sgt. Christopher Speer, and would like nothing better than to destroy our way of life. Jail was, and is the right place for Khadr.
Honouring our firefighters
Minto Express editorial: It is the time of year for us to pause and reflect on one of the municipality’s most important services.
