Looking Back

From the Oct. 31, 1979 edition of the Kincardine Independent

*An OPP officer was knifed during a domestic dispute in Tiverton. Two Constables were investigating a complaint, when one suffered stab wounds to his hand from the result of an altercation. A Tiverton man was taken to the Provincial Jail and charged with assaulting police, possession of a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.

*A number of area municipalities experienced population loss in 1978. The Village of Tiverton saw numbers drop from 879 to 792, while the Village of Ripley decreased by just two, from 626 to 624. The biggest drop in population locally was in Bruce Township, which went from 1,905 to 1,816. Slight population increases were recorded in Kincardine and Huron Township. Kincardine went from 5,343 to 5,481 while Huron went from 2,533 to 2,576.
