En conduisant ma voiture de Shawville vers Quyon, j'ai remarqué que le panneau d'avertissement pour les dangers du feu avait disparu de l'intersection du chemin Clarendon et de la route 148.  On ne l'a pas enlevé pour une simple réparation, il est bien parti pour de bon.

So.

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

Categories: 

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. Some people blame the road, but it is not the road that is dangerous, it's the drivers. They are in an excessive hurry, they pass on double lines and on blind corners, they are on their phones, they've had a few drinks, they are high, they are possibly not even licensed drivers. 

PMP picnic was pure pleasure

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?

It's sunny, the grass is green and the park is calling! Pack up your picnic basket and come to the third annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) children's picnic on Saturday at the Luskville Community Centre. (The above image is from last year evidently!)

A good breakfast is the best way to start the day. And, every day across Canada, volunteers assemble at elementary schools at 6:30 a.m. to make sure young students get that best start.

On June 6, Le Club des petits déjeuners (The Breakfast Club) volunteers from Notre Dame de la Joie in Luskville and Ste. Marie in Quyon gathered to be rewarded with a breakfast of their own. But first they served breakfast for the kids of course!

Dear Editor,

A great big thanks to the Municipality of Pontiac, the Quebec Ministry of Public Security, the Canadian Red Cross and our wonderful military for their long hours of very difficult work during the recent flood. I was very impressed with the way in which they handled the devastation it caused.

C'est avec regret que le Journal 2020 confirme la fermeture du magasin Dollar Général de Luskville,situé au bout du quatre voie de la route 148.Depuis quelque temps le magasin reste au trois-quart vides,des boites s'accumulent et les espaces sur les tablettes restent vides.
