Local meteorologists have been calling for beach-like conditions this weekend inside the Davidson Centre on the arena floor.
The 16th annual Kincardine Bulldogs Indoor Beach Volleyball Tournament is ready to kick off, amidst much anticipation. The annual fundraising event is eagerly anticipated each year by volleyball enthusiasts, as well as people who just like to have fun.
The arena floor has been filled with sand, and while the Bulldogs 2-on-2 and 6-on-6 action begins Friday night, the volleyball will actually begin much sooner. Tonight (Wednesday) the ladies recreational volleyball league will hold a year-end wrap-up tournament in the sand. Local schools will be using the sand for physical education classes, and tomorrow night (Thursday) there are tournaments for local businesses and the men's recreational hockey league.
Kincardine Legion president Maureen Couture plants a big wet one on this cod at the Legion’s Newfie Night on Saturday. Norm Gauthier and Jim Wade, right, carried out the ceremony where participants went through the Newfoundland tradition. First, those willing to take part must eat salt cod, followed by bread. Then, they are each anointed with sea water and seal oil. They then drink a shot of Screech before finally kissing the cod. In the background, Aurelia Coughlan can’t help but giggle at the ceremonial kiss, but not for long, because she was next to pucker up. A total of 13 brave souls lined up to become honourary Newfies for a night. (Barb McKay photo)

Building a safe community is about more than fighting crime.
The South-Bruce OPP is hosting a meeting on May 9 at the Municipal Administration offices to introduce the concept of building an all-around safe community and to generate public interest.
“Other than working to establish this committee, the police, as a community partner, will be taking a limited leadership role,” said Const. Kevin Martin in a release issued last week.
Martin said that a “safe community” protects people from all types of harm. Injury prevention and victimization are two examples he used. South-Bruce OPP officers regularly investigate scenarios in which people have been victimized as a result of criminal behaviour. Other investigations may include those who were injured in a car crash, or farm or industrial occurrence.
