Oh Those Small Towns...Where There's Not a Lot Goin' On

StephenVance bw 225w 200hWhat a year 2014 has been! The past 12 months have been an eclectic mix of the amusing and the less amusing, of politics and community events. There has certainly been a lot going on, and while we’ve highlighted a major story from each month of the past year in our print exclusive feature, there has been so much more than one story each month that tells the story of Meaford in 2014.

Politically, 2014 began with a pitch in January from the Owen Sound Police Service in hopes of securing a police services contract with Meaford, and 2014 ended after a year of public, and at times intense, debate, with the new council voting unanimously to remain with the OPP for Meaford's policing services.

Social Media and Answering to the Mother-in-Law

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hFor all that there is to despise about it, you have to love social media for at least one aspect – it gets people talking – err typing.

I was blissfully and willingly late to the world of social media. I looked upon the likes of Myspace and Facebook with great suspicion in the early days, and I still do.

If not for this little newspaper, I doubt I would even have a Facebook account. The Independent also has a Twitter account, though I confess, I know nothing of the Twitterverse, and I am far too verbose to try and limit my expressions to under 140 characters, so I have avoided it aside from establishing an account for The Independent that is automatically updated with whatever we put on Facebook, so it's like Twitter doesn't exist, and that's fine for this old hippie.
