Both the Leaminton OPP and Martin Varela, Chair of the Migrant Worker Community Program, got together this afternoon to create a video in English and Spanish especially for agricultural workers. This came in an effort to create more awareness in as many Spanish speaking agricultural workers as possible and to help them to comply with the provincial orders in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. Great team work!!

The Southpoint Peewee AE team is working with the SECC to gather winter outerwear for the local community in the Coars for Kids drive and as part of their good deed for the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup! Stop by the arena on Saturday Nov 2 between 9 and 12 to drop off any gently used coats to the kids!!
To the officer that attended my daughter's fender bender today, had a big heart! My daughter's phone was almost dead, the officer let her use their phone to keep in contact with us. She planned on driving it home but with the damage and strong winds, and less than 7% battery on her phone, the officer insisted the vehicle be towed so she can get home safely to her loved ones. Twin Oaks Towing was quick and a little bonus, the tow truck driver had a charger for her phone, lol. He dropped her vehicle off at the Dr, and then gave her a ride home!! Crappy to have the mini accident, awesome service from great people from Windsor to home! And not to mention, the guy she hit was very understanding as they waited for the police they almost seen 3 more fender benders in the same spot.
Today October 8th I had my black jeep parked on mill street in between Victoria south and wigle. When I came out I noticed visible damage to the driver side rear panel, the paint from the other vehicle was white and still on my jeep. If anyone saw anything please report it to police because I will be searching every day till I find a white vehicle with rear end damage and potential black paint

During my grandpa's final hours (Bill Abbott) on Saturday Sept 28 I wanted to give a shout out to the emergency team at Erie Shores Health Care Leamington for their caring and compassionate service. They deserve the recognition, thank you. A bigger shout out to the nurse who took care of him during the day, I believe her shift started at 7 am. I didn't quite get her name. But I do know that the compassion and care that she gave needs to be recognized, not only for him but for us. She offered us warm blankets etc not only checked in on him but us as well to see if we needed anything. Whenever I thought he needed something because he was uncomfortable she was there right away to assist. She made the circumstances more comfortable for us. A sincere thank you to her, a profession like that isn't easy, you did an amazing job.
