I was driving from Shawville to Quyon recently and noticed that the fire danger sign at the intersection of Clarendon St. and Hwy. 148 is gone. Not just taken down for repairs. It's gone, gone, gone for good.

The Highway 148 Effect

We have a smooth, fast highway for a country road. Now, at the end of June, when most roads are still pockmarked after the long winter and the rainy spring, we are a ribbon of road that invites stupidity.

Kids and their adults came in droves to the third annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) picnic event, held at the Community Centre in Luskville on June 17. There was art, there was craft, there were bubbles to blow, a mini-bouncy castle to pounce on and three -- count them, THREE -- fire engines to climb on. AND snacks! What more could the under-5 set ask for?
