Keep Our Parks Clean

The Editor,

The Town of Meaford is blessed with much natural beauty.

One spot of particular, but largely unknown beauty, is a piece of natural beach, known as Dog Beach, Coast Guard Beach, or I believe, officially as Governor General’s Beach. So baptized last summer with great pomp and circumstance in honour of the visit of Governor General David Johnston to Meaford.

I prefer the name of Dog Beach, because I take my little pooch there almost every day, and she loves it. Winter and summer and everything in between. Every day is different, high winds from different directions dictate the size of waves rolling in.

Local Grandmother Facing Homelessness

Editor,

As sunset rolls into darkness and darkness fades into light the reality has come that I am going to be homeless. 850 individuals/families are on a waiting list, but the families with children are more likely to be approved before single people.

This has caused many sleepless nights knowing that I will be another statistic in the homelessness in Grey County.

I receive support from the Y Housing but affordable rent here in Meaford you will not find. Houses are $1,500 -$1,800 plus and apartments no better than what I am living in, so we have no choice we have to settle just to have a roof over our head, there is no other place to go.

Support For Scarecrows Wearing 'Support Our Troops' Shirts

Editor,

I note the letter to your newspaper from Mr. Rice, the president of Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #32, in your Friday, 19 May 17 (online) edition. Mr. Rice states he "was wondering if anybody else has a problem with" the idea of using the iconic red "Support Our Troops" t-shirts on the scarecrows. I thank Mr. Rice for inviting others to comment.

The Legion's concern for appearances and propriety is most laudable. We have all seen some pretty tacky and tasteless presentations that involve some of our most cherished symbols.
