Day of Action

A round dance was held Monday afternoon at the corner of Central Avenue and Church Street here to coincide with the “Idle No More” global day of action. Drummers and people of all ages with signs peacefully showed their support of the movement, which opposes the Harper government and Bill C-45.

Down the hill

Three-year-old Chase Felix went cautiously down the hill at the overpass yesterday afternoon. With decent temperatures and a little fresh snow, the hill was abuzz with children—and adults—of all ages zooming down the snowy slope.

New trails

One of the new trails at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung (near Stratton) looked like a winter wonderland courtesy of Mother Nature. A “moonlight ski” is planned for tomorrow (Dec. 29) from 7-10 p.m. to mark the grand opening of the cross-country ski and snowshoe trail network there. Refreshments also will be served.

Ready to slide

Five-year-old Dakota Cooper, left, and brother Keaton, three, were ready to push off and slide down the hill at the overpass here yesterday afternoon. It was quite chilly out and the groups of youngsters who came to slide did not stay long.

Squash serve

Chad Faragher served in his match against Steve Krag during the 25th-annual men’s Boxing Day squash tournament yesterday. Ben Andrusco went on to capture the tournament, which featured a record 24 participants and ran for 10 hours.
