A reminder that La Vallee's landfill site is for township residents only.

There are specific areas designated for wood, tires, metal, and electronics. There also are bins for aluminum cans and plastic bottles.

Remember to sort your garbage accordingly.

Get well wishes are extended to Jason Mann, who broke his hip on New Year's Eve.

Jason has been dealing with health issues for quite some time. We only hope this latest setback heals quickly.

Robin's 2¢:

An Ontario poem

It's winter in Ontario and the gentle breezes blow at 75 miles an hour and 35 below.

Oh, how I love Ontario when the snow is up to your butt. You take a breath of winter air and your nostrils freeze shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful. So I guess I'll hang around.

I could never leave Ontario because I'm frozen to the ground.
