Bulldogs sign six

Inking veterans is next priority

By Josh Howald

Believe it or not, hockey season is quickly approaching.

The Nicol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs announced a half-dozen signings last week.

Kincardine General Manager Doug Kennedy confirmed the four signings reported in the June 14 edition of The Kincardine Independent - Jake Fair, Connor Gibson, Justin Marlowe and Kent Ribey.

He also announced that the Bulldogs have signed goaltender Ethan Primeau and Jesse Carnahan of Owen Sound. Primeau is from Kincardine.

"We're excited," said Kennedy. "We think we have signed six of the best local players that were available."

The next priority for Kennedy is to get his returning players to sign cards for the 2017-18 Provincial Junior Hockey League season.

School weighs in

Dear Editor,

As Principal and Vice-Principal of Kincardine & District Secondary School, we would like to address the recent article published on June 7, 2017, by Josh Howald, “That Ain’t Classy.”  We feel a need to set the record straight. We will not be brief, as the tone and words of his article warrant a detailed response.

First of all, to begin reading an article by the name of “That Ain’t Classy” and then to see the phrase “people could use a refresher on how to conduct themselves in public” in the opening paragraphs of an article that discusses our local high school’s charitable efforts through Relay for Life is very upsetting to a great number of people. To then go on and print inaccuracies about the event is an insult to both our school and our community.

Will you attend any of this week's Scottish Festival?
