LUSKVILLE SECTOR — It was a busy Thanksgiving Monday for Linda Sauvé and daughter Sandra Mankala, owners of le Casse-Croûte FastLane, as the community came out in force to support raising funds for the Quyon Family Center’s snowsuit fund, bringing in $560.00 to help provide to families in need.  By the end of the day, every delicious bite of the four turkeys donated by Jack and Janet Deschênes of Depanneur Poirier, and the exquisite locally baked pumpkin pies donated by Joanne Labadie and Doug Briden of Ferme Lavender Ridge, had been eagerly devoured by generous patrons.

September 25th, 2014 — Linda Sauvé couldn’t imaging Pontiac without that familiar spot where locals and visitors have been coming to for years.  “This place has been here forever, how could we let it shut down?”  But shut down it did when the tremendous burdens of dealing with a chronic illness in the current economy overwhelmed the prior owners, leaving them with the heartbreaking task of closing their business and leaving a hole in the life of the entire community.

That’s when Linda and daughter Sandra Mankala decided to re-ignite the flame and get one of Pontiac’s hotspots back on track.  “We couldn’t just let it go down like that.  People come from as far away as Rockland to come here and it’s always been a favorite spot for drag racers and spectators from the Luskville Dragway.  Even the Mayors eat here!”

UPDATE: Highway 148 Detour Progress

Luskville Sector — Ministry of Transport Québec officials are hopeful that the bypass road being built alongside the washed-out portion of Highway 148 will be ready to go into service later this afternoon, relieving local residents and visitors to the Municipality of Pontiac from the one-and-a-half hour plus detour in effect since Tuesday afternoon.

The bypass lane will accommodate one lane of traffic at a time, alternating directions by way of temporary traffic lights that will be put in place on each end of the newly created bypass lane.

Mayor Roger Larose and Pontiac’s MNA André Fortin were both onsite monitoring the MTQ’s progress and speaking to concerned citizens.

The Ministry of Transport Québec officials advise motorists to monitor the MTQ website for the exact time of the bypass lane opening.

Again with a Sinkhole on the 148

In June 2011, heavy rains washed out a portion of Route 148 between Luskville and Quyon, forcing traffic to detour along narrow gravel roads for more than two months. At the time I noted that had the washout occured east of Parker Road rather than west of it, no detour would have been possible: westbound traffic would have had to double back to Gatineau, and eastbound traffic would have had to take the Eardley-Masham Road or the Quyon Ferry.

Stephan Paape remembers seeing the twinkle in his daughter’s eye after she discovered the bumpy surface of the moon through a telescope lens.

To peer into the “inky black background of space really puts our own place and the Earth’s place in the universe into perspective,” he said.

Paape, the president of the not-for-profit AstroPontiac, hopes to raise $12,500 by mid-August to build one of the first astronomy parks in the national capital region. The park is expected to be located in Pontiac, Que., roughly a 30-minute drive northwest of Ottawa.
