Mike’s rant — “Magic” dividend continues to amaze

Ya know, there are a few hearty souls – see suffered oxygen deprivation at some point in their lives – who are still paying attention to all the goings on regarding Grimsby Energy, Grimsby Power, Niagara Power, Holdco2 (whatever their flavour of the day is). There is so much I wish I could unsee about […]

Mike’s rant — Bring back the three-year terms

There has been such focus with Grimsby’s administration to make Grimsby great again, significant issues have been left by the wayside in the wake of huge cost overruns and lack of attention. With the mish-mash adjacent (see page 14 in our August 17 online edition), there was no need to edit or change a word. […]

Mike’s rant — Live to taxpayers’ budget, not wish list

If West Lincoln council could just step back, cut the hyperbole and think objectively for one moment, as a whole they would realize all the hullaballoo from 100-ish cheesed off taxpayers Tuesday night wasn’t about lack of information, misinformation, what features were included in the MURS concept proposal, or what did or didn’t happen at […]

Mike’s rant — WL problems far excede spending

A couple of points of clarification before we get rolling this week: Dennis MacPhail, board chair of Smithville United Church gave me a buzz to clarify a comment made in last week’s story about the new parking lot which will replace lost parking spots along West Street and then some.

Mike’s “Christmas” rant — ‘Twas the night before something strange

The tradition continues… (With apologies to Clement C. Moore) ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through town, Not a taxpayer was stirring, they all sported frowns. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon could be snared. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While […]

Mike’s Rant — Consider yourself slapped, Grimsby!

I am going to reach out – please picture this, good reader – and collectively slap every resident of Grimsby right now. Did you feel it? I certainly hope so because you people need to wake the heck up before you find a big “closed due to bankruptcy” sign on Grimsby town hall. Yes, on […]

Mike’s rant: Fundamental hydro questions abound

Yikes! I had thought of many smart butt leads for this week’s offering as I sat at Grimsby’s Finance and Administration Committee meeting on Monday evening. But I don’t want the straight up facts of what is materializing to get mixed in with hyperbole, so let’s just stick with yikes! Where do I start? The […]

Mike’s Rant: Anyone ready to get a little dirty?

Yes, I am a procrastinator, but I left this space for last this week on purpose. Really, I had to, if not wanted to, as virtually everyone in the door and person I spoke to on the phone said, “Hey, were you at the hospital meeting? What does all that mean? What’s REALLY going on?” […]

WLMH proposal worthy of time

I went into more detail last week, but just want to note next Thursday’s important meeting at the Grimsby Activity Centre (formerly Grimsby Seniors Centre). Hamilton Health Sciences’ team will unveil what they proposed future services for West Lincoln Memorial Hospital will be – in their eyes. This proposal is important for several key reasons, […]
