*The Douglas Point Generating Station and Unit 1 of the Bruce A Generating Station were both in the throes of a shut down. Unit 1 has been down since Sept. 9 for warranty inspection of the turbine, and will be down until mid-October. Units 2 and 3 continued to operate at capacity, while construction of Unit 4 was on schedule. The 200-megawatt Douglas Point station was closed Sept. 8 for maintenance work and turbine inspection.

From the August 16, 1978 edition of The Kincardine Independent
  • More than 1,000 people turned out for the Kincardine Rotary Club’s sixth annual Lobster Boil. President Don Arscott said that about 500 lobster dinners and 600 fish and chip dinners were served at the event, which was held at the Community Centre. Though Arscott said the dinner was a success, he said the club would have liked to have sold another or 200 or 300 lobsters.
  • Driverless vehicles caused $1,700 in damages. A parked and unattended vehicle was left in gear at the Texaco gas station and rolled forward to strike the wall of a nearby motel room. The same day, a car at Zehrs rolled forward and struck another vehicle causing damage.

From under the rock

Thanks Eric, but you can use my name. I am the one you were referring to. I'm well protected by my rock and I'm very comfortable being under it.

Why can't we get rid of the hospital board? They must be like a union employee - that is of no value, a job for life. I got a real belly laugh when I heard the SBGHC head say in a radio interview: I don't know why the public went public and made such a fuss. Boy, he is out to lunch. I would hope the door strikes him severely on the posterior when he leaves, and maybe just enough to go forward and face down in whatever your readers wish.
I received first hand information on the reunion, as I have a small source. I don't need nor do I require names as the paper does the same thing; it gives you a mental challenge.

I read your diatribe and enjoyed it. Maybe Carol Mitchell is under a rock, but farther and deeper in the riding. She is a busy person and is always running out of breath running after McGuinty.
