Armow Wind project construction nearing completion

By Barb McKay

 

Construction of the Armow Wind project is in the final stages and the Municipality of Kincardine is racing to conduct a sound level field study before the wind farm becomes operational.

 

SP Armow Wind, the developers of the 180-megawatt wind energy project, issued a construction update last week. All 52 kilometres of access roads to the wind turbines are now complete and all 91 turbine foundations have been constructed. Nearly all the turbines have been delivered to the site and 78 have been installed. A total of 146 kilometres out of 179 kilometres of collector cables have been installed and 56 of 91 towers have been wired.

SHARRON MAY BRADLEY (DIXON) (1942 - 2015)

With heavy hearts on Sept. 28, 2015, we had to let our Mom embrace a new journey.

Sharron Bradley was born and raised in Kincardine. Her spirit is carried on in her daughters Victoria Cahill (husband Martin), Julie Bradley and Joanne Collins (husband Kenneth), her grandsons Joseph and Brandon Collins and great-grandchildren Estrellos Lumen and Sienna Cahill.

Mom will be reunited with her brother George Dymer, her mother Marie Hartwick and her grandmother Edith Dixon.

Mom's final days were spent in laughter and tears. She started calling her daughters "her buttercups" and she had an incredible sense of humour. She came home to embrace her last summer in Kincardine, enjoying the sunsets and spending time with family. She spent hours in Vickie's garden enjoying the warmth of the sun and the beauty of her trumpet plant.

Novice Kinucks top Ice Dogs in preseason opener

A strong finish to a slow start propelled the Home Hardware Novice Rep Kinucks to victory as they downed the Arran Elderslie Ice Dogs 7-1 in exhibition play last Wednesday.

It wasn’t an attractive start, but Kincardine escaped the first period with a 2-0 lead. Trent Houghton opened the scoring at the four minute mark from Beckett Graham. Joshua Cuyler followed with a tally a minute later from Jack Beddington.

The Ice Dogs cut the lead in half with the sole marker of the second, mid-way through the period.

In the third, it was all Kincardine. The Kinucks opened the final frame with three goals in less than three minutes to put the game out of reach. Defenceman Beddington scored his first as a Novice Rep from Ethan Kaminski, followed by goals from Zac Fletcher and Ty McQuillin. Assisting on the Fletcher, McQuillin goals was Kaminiski, Jack Charbonneau and Graham.


Animal control bylaw

Further to correspondence with bylaw officer Heather Falconer on Sept. 29, the Huron Kinloss Animal Control bylaw states: “That a dog can be off leash but has to be under that (sic) control of the owner."

 

All breeds of dog take exception to other dogs. When that happens, the owner's vigilance is inconsequential and he/she effectively has no control. Time and again, the fact is dogs fight. Bites, mauling, surgery, crippling disfigurement and euthanasia ensue.
