Dear Santa, It's Me Again...

StephenVance 540Hey Santa,

It's that time of year again when I send you a quick note with my annual wish list (I can't let all those Grade 3 kids on pages 6 and 7 of this week's print paper beat me to it!). I hope all is well up in the North Pole, and that Mrs. Claus and those reindeer are doing fine.

Now I know I don't celebrate Christmas myself, but my community does, or at least that's what all those sparkling lights and wreaths downtown tell me, so I hope you'll consider my wish list just the same.

What We Really Need is a Regional Library System

StephenVance 540Unless an agreement can be reached very, very soon residents in the Sydenham area of the municipality will lose their long-held library privileges at the Owen Sound North Grey Union Public Library. Should that happen (and by absolutely no means should Meaford's council allow that to happen) residents of the former Sydenham Township will have every right to be furious, but the reality is we shouldn't even be in this mess at all.

We Shouldn't Need the Holiday Season to Remind Us But... Don't Drink & Drive

StephenVance 540December has arrived, the holiday season is upon us. Colourful lights twinkle in the night, storefronts are adorned with shiny displays, carols stream through unseen speakers... and as at any other time of year, moronic idiots continue to drink and drive.

Sorry, did 'moronic idiots' sound a little harsh? How about selfish potential murderers? Vehicular terrorists?

An Infrastructure Focused Budget is Just What This Municipality Needs

StephenVance 540Meaford Mayor Barb Clumpus referred to the budget approved by council to be presented at the December 5 statutory public meeting as “remarkable”, however, while it is a very good budget, “remarkable” is not the word I would use.

After all, space travel is pretty remarkable, the fact that we can send photos, videos, and text through the air for someone halfway around the world to receive is remarkable.
