What's Being Said About Your Kids Behind Their Backs?

Dear Editor,

I want to squeal on the kids in the Grade 8 music class. I was talking to a lady who attended the excellent performance of the Goldenaires, and she had some things to say that the parents should know.

She talked endlessly about the extreme good behaviour of every student there. There was no nonsense like poking each other, whispering, giggling, or talking the way we usually see when kids get together. Even in the kitchen out of sight they showed total quiet respect for the building, audience, supervisors, and staff.

Reader Urges Golfers to Consider Welfare of Geese

Editor,

Everyone is getting their swing ready for the exciting start of the golf season. The sun is shining, the grass is growing and the birds are nesting.

One of the difficult relationships on a course is that of the geese and the golfers. Of course it is best if the geese are discouraged from nesting on or around the courses and there are several different ways of doing this. Some are definitely more humane than others.

Reader: Empire Building Trumps Bridge Building

Editor,

The proposal to make the operation of the waste treatment plant a municipal employee function rather than a contracted function smacks of empire building by staff. Adding two more full time employees to the already bloated municipality headcount is lunacy.

Of course staff will claim savings with this move but that is pure equine excrement.

It is common knowledge that civil service jobs are outpacing the private sector in compensation and benefits. Already, almost half of the Municipality of Meaford’s tax revenue goes towards staff compensation. Is it therefore any surprise that bridge and road infrastructure are neglected?
