Reader Thankful For Damage Repair at Beautiful Joe Park

Dear Editor,

After reading of the recent damage done at Beautiful Joe Park I went and visited to see for myself.  Fortunately for me the plaque for our family pet had miraculously escaped being destroyed.  

A short time later I again went to the park and to my surprise the park looked wonderful; the garden beds were lush and well cared for and looked better than ever.  The memorial plaques had all been repaired and the tranquil and serene area had once again been restored to its natural beauty.

Thank you to those responsible who made this “special” place special again.

Denmark Hiker Discovers Beauty of Grey County Residents


On June 15th a young man from Copenhagen, Denmark, arrived at our door, on foot and carrying a large back pack. He had just arrived in Canada for a three-week visit and had spent his first day on the Bruce Trail (he had just hiked 32km).

Friends had dropped him off south of Walters Falls and he will hike all the way to Tobermory. The rugged beauty of the Trail blew him away, but what impressed him even more were the friendly locals who tooted their horns and gave him a big thumbs up as they passed him by. He said, "I can hardly wait to meet more Canadians, you are wonderful.”

He had booked with us at our B&B, in January. Although he will camp along most of the way, he knew he would have questions he needed answered after a day on the trail, so decided to stay at a B&B for his first night.

Reader's Take on Audited Financial Statements


As I have done every year, I have spent some time in review of the Audited Statement for the Municipality of Meaford for 2013. Although the level of detail in audited statements for 2013 is less than in the budget, I find it is still a worthwhile exercise to study these audited statements.

I offer my observations to your readers as follows:


The municipality budgeted for a surplus of $3,823,807 (budgeted revenue of $19,374,836 with expenses of $15,551,029), but only had an actual surplus of $1,628,788 because four departments went over their budgets by the amounts as follows:
