Do we, in this neck of the woods, have a corner on stupidity? Why is it that if we elect a council to run the municipality these jokers have to hire a manager? And the last one was a real dandy!


The hospital parking - it is so stupid. No one will believe it that an emergency patient has to get a ticket to get in. That is stupid in the most extreme sense. The location of the hospital and the clinic is the most stupid ever - on top of a hill. My God, give your head a shake.

Knights shut out JDSS

Kincardine improved to 2-0-1 in Bluewater Athletic Association boy s hockey this afternoon (Thursday) with a 4-0 shutout win in Hanover.

Kincardine District Secondary School scored three second period goals against the John Diefenbaker Secondary School Trojans, and Easton Battler stopped every shot he faced for the shut out and his second win of the season.

Gerrit Satosek notched the eventual game winner on a second period power play from Mitch Dickson and Ryker Killins. Keegan McLelland and Dickson then scored back-to-back goals in the final two minutes of the frame to make it 3-0. McLelland buried a great pass from Killins, while Dickson converted a set-up from Satosek. Austin Rees made it 4-0 when he scored into an empty net with 1:30 remaining in the game.
