‘We are not extremists or scaremongers’
Dear Editor: Parents, grandparents, farmers, teachers, coaches, firefighters, nurses, First Nations, concerned citizens, young and old...that is “WHO” is at the road blockade entrance to the Eco Park in Dundalk. We are an average cross section of residents, no different than you. We are not extremists or scaremongers.
Who are the bullies here anyway?
Dear editor: As a ratepayer in Southgate Township who has been watching events unfold I too am very angry and dismayed. You mention in your letter to the editor, Ms. Cheeseman, that there is a small group of people using “aggressive and bullying tactics.” I am one of those people and our “small” group is neither aggressive nor bully-like.

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.

95th anniversary Vimy visit brings ‘sense of peace’
Dear Editor: This year, 2012, marked the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. This historic battle was fought in Normandy, France and was the first time that Canadian battalions had fought shoulder to shoulder in the First World War. Prior to this time, Canadians has been used only to fill in vacancies in British battalions.
Council urged to reconsider heritage district project
Dear Editor: I would like to publicly thank Councillor Kirk McElwain for his eloquent presentation to his fellow councillors in urging the modest funding of $25,000 needed for the Victoria Crescent Heritage District to go forward and that this funding be taken from the previous Heritage Centre Wellington reserve fund.
Pick up after your dog
Dear editor: I do think that better use of the signage would be to list the fine for not picking up after your dog (up to $5,000) and the fine for littering. If respect for your fellow park users doesn’t get you to pick up after yourself and your dog, perhaps knowing how big that fine is will!
Bullying must stop
Dear Editor: As a ratepayer of Southgate Township who has been watching events unfold in the last few weeks regarding the Eco Industrial Park in Dundalk I am very angry and dismayed. It seems that a small group of people is using very aggressive bullying tactics and holding our township hostage.

Men's Choir in need of a conductor
Dear editor: Earl has decided to slow down and that means resigning as conductor of our choir, and unless a new conductor comes forward we have no choice but to disband. Our members would hate to see that happen as they really enjoy the singing and fellowship.
Working for farmers
Dear editor: Our government remains committed to the RMP, despite calls in the Drummond Report for it to be terminated and despite the federal government’s refusal to participate. A combination of the fed's refusal to participate, coupled with our need to eliminate the deficit will necessitate some changes.
Thanks to vet
Dear editor: I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mary Walker who is a veterinarian at the Heartland Veterinary care in Drayton.
Society plant auction
Dear Editor: The guest speaker for the St Marys Horticultural Society open meeting on Wednesday, April 4th was Philip Holst talking about 'Dream Gardens'. Everyone has a Dream Garden and everyone's ideas for a Dream Garden is different, an ever growing and evolving landscape.
30 minute drive to ER a barrier to access
Dear editor: We remain concerned with respect to the possible deterioration in health care and the possibility of SMMH losing ER 24/7. Despite an overwhelming response from the community to retain ER 24/7, there appears to be no positive action to respect the wishes of the community and retain 24/7, save and except that of actions taken by our prior MPP, John Wilkinson and our existing MPP, Randy Pettapiece.
York Street for people
Dear editor: When will the first priority of the City of Stratford be people and people spaces without cars?
A taste of Perth County
Dear editor: The 2013 International Plowing Match cookbook committee would like to thank everyone who submitted recipes to our cookbook, “100 Years in the Making.”
Anti-bullying bill misses its mark
Dear editor: If Bill13 is about protecting ALL pupils, why does it establish support only for students who wish to establish and lead activities for four particular groups? Surely bullying extends beyond these four groups named.
A sweet fundraiser
Dear editor: Chocolate Barrs donated three prizes this year hoping to encourage more people to buy more tickets.
