Looking Back

From the Nov. 29, 1978 edition of The Kincardine Independent

*The date for a recount of the Nov. 13, 1978 Kincardine election was set for Dec. 5. Judge P.S. MacKenzie of Walkerton was appointed to count votes for mayor, deputy reeve and PUC. Kincardine town council made the decision to ask for a recount at a meeting the previous week.

*A false alarm called in to the Kincardine Fire Department disrupted the Santa Claus Parade Saturday afternoon. The fire truck passed through the parade as it wounds its way south on Queen St., was on its way to the hospital where somebody had falsely reported a fire.


Council agrees on clinic expansion

Kincardine’s medical community is getting a slimmed-down and less expensive addition to the community medical clinic following a decision Monday night by Kincardine council.
