Noel- Christmas Cards will soon be arriving by mail perhaps with a Christmassy themed stamp. But how many ever take the time to look at the cancellation stamp, that often black wavy mark that mars the pretty stamp?

ELMSDALE: Dancing is a lot like hockey – when a new season starts one expects the first pre-season games—or in this case competition— to be used to shake of any dust, and get game strategies down pat. For dancers with Dance Zone Performing Arts Centre in Elmsdale, they shook off any dust quickly enough to bring home top honours from DanceQuest in Saint John, N.B., on Oct. 29-30. The centre [..]

West Gore- Hearing the word Bluegrass music brings to mind mountains, long scraggly beards, bare feet, corn jugs, nasal harmonies, pickin’ banjo’s, mandolins and everyone having a grand ol’ time. Quite an image to conjure helped along by the “Oh Brother, Where Art Though?” movie and the Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs music from Beverly Hillbillies. Definitely toe tappin’, knee slappin’ tunes, but it is not for everyone; or is [..]

Police call them open and shut cases. But sometimes juries don’t see them that way. Certainly Annie Simpson was guilty of murder. That’s the way the good citizens of Fayetteville, N.C., saw it back in 1850. That’s how the police saw it. In fact, everyone said she was guilty; everyone except Annie Simpson. Old records indicate Annie was the most beautiful belle in town when she married Alexander Simpson at [..]

ELDERBANK: Just like he has fought for his constituents since being elected 12 years ago, Steve Streatch plans to fight just as hard in another battle—a battle of good health against head and neck cancer. The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) Councillor for Eastern Shore-Musquodoboit Valley officially announced the diagnosis at regional council’s Nov. 15 meeting.

I have lived in East Hants for the past year of my life, and maybe it’s the fact that I work for a small town paper, but many of my story leads and key phrases all tend to contain or focus in on the idea and happenings of ‘community’.
