To the editor:
A very kind and honest lady found my purse in the Walmart parking lot and turned it in to the customer service counter.
The Walmart employee (Jennifer) phoned me and when I picked it up, the lady had not left her name.
How can I thank you for being so honest? You cannot believe the relief to get credit cards, passport, and papers all intact.
Thank you, again.
Since when is it the mandate of town council to be in the business of developing, buying, and selling residential lots.

The FFHS band and the Muskie track-and-field team would like to extend a big thanks to the community for supporting the “Beat the Band” 5K run/walk and the kids’ 1K on Saturday.
Although the weather wasn’t favourable, we want to thank each and every runner or walker who came out to run or walk on a cool, rainy day.
The proposed Huffman subdivision is a completely crazy plan which, in these difficult times, will cost taxpayers millions of dollars—dollars we do not have or ought not to direct into this plan.
In my opinion, as a councillor Mr. Perry should get his facts straight before making statements about subjects he knows nothing about.
Such as the fact that Boise Cascade does not produce newsprint at its Falls mill but uncoated free sheet, which is 100 percent kraft pulp, not ground wood pulp which is used in newsprint.

With Ontario committing itself to the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA), the ELA Support Group thanks Premier Kathleen Wynne. She has done the right thing.

•Diane Orihel, who inspired us to work hard and not give up;
Please accept this open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the closure of the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA).
