This year, the Cubs are OBA provincial 'B' senior champions. Kincardine was bumped up after cruising to an OBA 'C' title last season, and rightfully so. The games were closer this year for the Cubs, who survived an early loss in the tournament to defeat Clearview in back-to-back games to win the provincial B championship.

Final march

A huge crowd turned out Saturday night for the final march of the season for the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band. A significantly smaller crowd followed the band back to the park after the break, as the skies opened up and a downpour began. (Josh Howald photo)


Blaze at bowling alley

A large fire drew firefighters from Kincardine and Tiverton to the Bruce Bowling Lanes last Wednesday morning.

Municipality of Kincardine Fire Department Fire Chief Kent Padfield said his men responded to a call of heavy smoke coming from the building shortly  before 7 a.m. It took crews several hours to bring the fire under control. They were able to contain the fire to the centre of the building. Unfortunately, there is now heavy damage from smoke and water to the bowling alley.

Padfield requested assistance from the South-Bruce OPP and the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal and Emergency Management. An OEFM Fire Investigator visited the scene on Monday looking for a cause of the fire.
