Story About Strange Smell at GBCS Brings Back Memories For Reader

To the Editor,

Have just read your article regarding the strange smell at GBCS and it brought up a memory of a time in the late 50s that had the same result.

If your readers remember the science teacher, Hank Beamer, was a good practical joker at times. One day toward the end of the school year the temperature was up in the 90s and most of the students were not really interested in learning. Hank was in charge of lockers throughout the school and had the combinations of most of the students' locks so had access to them for nefarious use.

Lest We Forget

The Editor,

The time of year is approaching when Canadians will be purchasing their poppies from the Royal Canadian Legion to commemorate the Fallen since the First Great War. The proceeds go to support veterans in need.

On November 11, there will be commemorations Canada-wide to honour our soldiers who did not come back. There will be pomp and circumstance, with our politicians front and centre, laying wreaths at the Memorial sites. LEST WE FORGET.

After these commemorations are over, there will be business as usual.

Reader Supports Exploring Inter-Community Public Transit

Dear Editor,

Your recent editorial on the many advantages if an inter community transit program (There's Another Way to Think About Inter-Community Public Transit, October 6, 2016) was right on.

So I won’t repeat your well-reasoned argument but strongly suggest that  Meaford Council reconsider the issue with greater attention to the big picture. I got the impression that Council’s recent debate on the matter was  hasty and rather poorly thought out.

Here’s hoping that every one will settle down and re-visit this very good idea.


Mike Belec, Meaford
