Lennox leads derby

One week left in Chantry Chinook

By Josh Howald

With one week remaining in Lake Huron's largest fishing derby, Hanover's Paul Lennox sits atop the leaderboard.

Lennox took the lead on Thursday, when he brought in a 16.45-pound chinook salmon into the Saugeen Shores weigh station. It is one of four fish caught in the last week to bump Roy Eaton from top spot. Luke Scherders of Walkerton is now in second place in the salmon category, followed by Katie MacMillan and Matt Jacob, all with catches of at least 14 pounds.

Bob Hicks of Kincardine still leads the trout division. His 24.61-pound lake trout is going to be a tough fish to beat. It weighs in at more than 8 pounds heavier than the second place trout. Local anglers Paul Bester and Tim Dwinnell currently hold fourth and fifth place, respectively, on the trout leaderboard.

The prizes will be doled out at the closing ceremonies this Sunday afternoon in Tiverton at the Community Centre beginning at 1 p.m.

No respect for property

I'm writing to tell you of a very disappointing experience in our community.

On Wednesday, July 29, I took my grandson to have a look at the weeding situation at boardwalk Garden #23 to make a plan for later in the week. Immediately he noticed that the beautiful woven tree branch chair he and his sister worked so hard to put in last year had been broken.

This is not the first time it was damaged, but this time it is broken and cannot be used as one of the main supporting branches for the seat was snapped. The damage was not visible Tuesday evening, so I'm going to guess that through the night someone jumped on it. I'd like to be wrong, but I doubt it.
