Mike’s rant: New info, new review makes sense

The danger about blathering on about Grimsby biodigester project is the whole thing will simply become background noise and nobody will care or pay attention. There is fine line between providing important, new researched materials and sounding like a broken record repeating the same data and anecdotes every week. It was great to see some sign of movement by Grimsby on its transportation issue (see front page of newsnow online […]

Mike’s Rant — Door of communication just closed

I suck at drawing. And it’s too bad. If there are any aspiring editorial cartoonists out there, call me…seriously. So picture this: a black and white cartoon parked where the smiling Leafs tickets winner is. Picture the Whack-A-Mole game you’ve seen at midway arcades. Popping their respective noggins out of each hole on the board […]

Mike’s Rant: Clearly something was wrong

It seems as though Town of Grimsby officials will move relatively swiftly in dealing with a bizarre policy implemented seemingly overnight last week. With no notice to users, the Lake Street dog park was padlocked in the evening last Thursday, just after a sign was posted earlier that day noting it would be locked in […]

Mike’s Rant: Surfing the red wave across Canada

The political door will not be hitting Mr. Harper as he exits to make room for Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau. Last week everyone was asking, “What do you think will happen?” This week, it’s, “Did you see that coming?” Short answer, yes, but not to the extent by which things rolled out. In my column […]

Sale of Fifth Wheel just evolution

It really should not come as a shock to anyone that Fifth Wheel Truck Stop has been sold and is expected to be developed as residential. An expansive piece of lakefront real estate in a stretch that is red hot and knee deep in all kinds of high-density residential development right now? It was more […]

Get out to those arena meetings

Never can it be said we were never happy to see a full page taken by someone in Niagara This Week after the Township of West Lincoln has finally attempted to communicate with its taxpayers regarding public meetings= regarding the proposed community centre project. It was never a concern that NewsNow would get an ad […]

Mike’s rant

So I’m driving to Beamsville this afternoon after a couple of long chats in Smithville hearing about truck traffic traffic in the core there; new curbs poured for the Griffin Street intersection. People already saying the new corner will not be good for trucks making right-hand turns. Lots of questions about ongoing shenanigans at West […]

“Santa” comes to Niagara West

Twas the night before deadline, when all through the town, Not a candidate was stirring, the election finally went down; The stockings were hung on the mantle with thought, In hopes that GO Train tix soon could be bought; The girls were snuggled all cozy in blankets, Not knowing their “new” Harmony Jewellers gifts were […]

Weir’s winery welcome a class act

It has been about 35 years since I laid my eyes upon Wiener Bennett. Early on, myself and my friends figured he got tired of our teenaged act of taking the same putt 10 times til we made it when we were playing good ol’ Seaforth Golf and Country Club. He was an assistant pro […]
