Bruce Grey Owen Sound Conservative MP Larry Miller has announced he’s retiring from politics.

At a news conference in Owen Sound Friday morning, Miller said he will not be running in this year’s federal election. He’s been the MP for the riding since 2004 and says that’s long enough and he’s glad to be exiting on his own terms. Millers said his electoral success stems from staying close to the grass roots.

Huron County councillors continue to look at the concept of consolidation as part of a county-wide facilities review.

One site they are looking at is part of the former Victoria Public School property in Goderich, behind the new hotel. Goderich has offered to sell it to the county.

CAO Meighan Wark said they have determined the property is the right size to accommodate a building that would have all the components they need.

If council decides that is the direction it wants to go, Wark says the next step would be to hire an architect for the project.

The signature growling stutter of the Harley Davidson engine is gone, replaced by a jet engine-like whine that betrays its electric, cutting-edge technology.

But at zero to 100 km/h an hour in 3.5 seconds, this bike is still all Harley.

London has been chosen as one of the cities that will be first to sell Harley Davidson’s new electric motorcycle, LiveWire, to be available in late spring or early summer, as the iconic bike maker looks to woo new riders.

If you’re over the age of 30, you probably have at least a few – and maybe even a dozen – boxes filled with old printed photos and photo albums. You probably haven’t looked at them in years, and yet you can’t just throw them away.

Or maybe your parents are moving, and they’ve asked for help in determining which photos to keep and whether anyone wants part of the collection.

Baseboard heating not living up to its name?

Pretty much anything that builds up on your heater’s heating element or radiator fins—dust, dirt, pet hair, cobwebs—can block airflow and interfere with the unit’s ability to put out heat. Which is its only job. So clean it.

As cottagers, we can understand why anyone would want their remains scattered in nature. But for the loved ones left behind, this simple practice can lead to questions, concerns, and unexpected outcomes. Since the last thing you want is to run afoul of the law during an already difficult time, we consulted with the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO). The BAO’s main mandate is consumer protection and ensuring that people understand their rights and responsibilities before entering into contracts with funeral homes and other licensed organizations.

Matt at Environmental Defence Gala 4

Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.

I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission.  We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.
