Work to reduce storm water flows into the sewage system in the Huron Ridge subdivision has helped during heavy rainfall events, but average flows through the system continue to be a problem, according to engineers.
Bruce Potter, of B.M. Ross, which has been involved with the Huron Ridge subdivision reconstruction project, attended last Wednesday’s council meeting to provide council and the public with a refresher on the issue and work that has been done on the

The municipality is going back on its word that costs for the water pipeline project from the former Town of
Allen Wickert, who owns a farm on Bruce County Road 23, told Kincardine council during its meeting last Wednesday that staff and council today are trying to reconcile past decisions made for the project.
“I was at the table when the project was developed,” he said. “It was supposed to be full cost recovery. I don’t know what went wrong, but something went wrong.”

What a difference a week can make.
The Nicol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs got some swagger back with a big 9-5 win over the previously undefeated Mitchell Hawks Friday night at home.
Kincardine entered the weekend as a frustrated team with just one victory to its name. But a four-goal explosion in the second period against the Western Junior C Hockey League’s first place team has the ‘Dogs back in a good mood.
“We now know what we’re capable of,” said captain Brett Catto, who had a five-point night with two helpers to go along with his hat trick.
“The whole atmosphere was different in the room after the win, and we have to keep that feeling.”

While a 7-3 loss is a less than ideal start to the season, it wasn’t a completely unexpected result.
Ripley was outshot, outskated and outworked Saturday night in Shallow Lake as the Crushers and Wolves kicked off another WOAA Senior AA campaign. The Crushers went up 2-0 on first period goals from tough guy Adam Smyth, and never looked back. The Wolves didn’t have a chance, with the shots on goal 47-22 in favour of Shallow Lake. Bottom line is, the Wolves weren’t ready.
“They came hard, and we couldn’t keep up with them,” said captain Jeremy McQuillin after the game. “It’s tough, they have been in their barn, playing games and we’ve been working out in Kincardine. We’re not a team yet, and we weren’t in game shape. It will take a bit of time.”
As Thanksgiving weekend approaches, Canadians, chronic complainers that many of us are, should sit back and take a look at the world.
We have much for which to be thankful.
In many countries of the world, the literati have more important things to worry about – their safety, food, water, a roof over head.
The time has come, the gate is open.
