Recent terrorism attacks around the world have definitely caught everyone’s attention.  We have seen horrific footage in the media and hope that this type of terrorism never reaches our country.  What can we do though?  It’s scary to think that this type of thing could ever happen in Canada.  As individual citizens, sadly I don’t know that there is anything that we can do.  We can always be cautious when travelling the globe, we can send our best wishes to countries who have suffered and pray that it never happens again.  It’s difficult as we because get a feeling of helplessness.   Unfortunately I don’t think we have seen the end of this type of unnecessary killings, it is very scary.  I am sure that those in control of the military and countries are doing their best to put an end to this.   We hope that Paris and other areas suffering from the recent attacks know that they are in the thoughts and prayers of Canadians.  Hugs your loved ones a little tighter today.

The Community is looking for someone who can do the snow shovelling at the Community Centre.  This is a paid position or if you need community hours, that will work great too.  We need someone reliable to clear the snow by all entrances and lay salt on the sidewalks and stairs.  If you are interested in this position, please contact Wanda as soon as possible at 705-725-6517  .

I’m not sure if anyone else recently witnessed the aftermath of the collision at George Johnston and Ronald Road last week, but my understanding is that it resulted after someone failed to stop at the stop street.  Thankfully there were no injuries but I’m sure there is vehicle damage and some scary recollections of it for those involved.  Accidents do happen, that is for sure, but let’s be safe in our community each day so it becomes habit to stop completely at the signs.  Also, keep note of the frost on the roads in the mornings as you head to work or school.  They are frosty and can be very slippery.

And last but not least…let’s light up Minesing with Christmas lights and displays to show our Christmas spirit.  This week is supposed to be a warm one, so it may be a good time to get up on the ladder (carefully of course) and not freeze your fingers off.

Until next time…do something kind for someone today.  It feels great.
