Great neighbourhood with great neighbours!
The neighbours on Balmoral Bay would like to acknowledge the wonderful co-operation of fellow neighbours, family members, friends and volunteers who helped us clean up the fallen trees and broken branches that we lost in the “Great Storm” on July 5. Trucks, trailers, rakes, chainsaws and helping hands miraculously appeared as the clean up progressed. Even tasty food was provided by neighbours. A disaster became a work party of wonderful people. Many, many thanks to all!
Recipe for disaster
Tenting + driving + raised speed limits = death. We all know that everyone drives at least 10 kilometres over the posted speed limits now, if speed limits are raised to 120 km/h on highways, in actuality motorists will attempt to drive 130 km/h. And that is a recipe for disaster. I guess to appreciate what I am saying, you too would have had to lose your entire family to a car accident due to a speeding driver. Please pause a moment and think about the consequences of raising speed limits.
Mosquito killers have arrived!
The dragonflies have arrived and are hunting them down! Put up a purple martin nest, put up a Stinger mosquito kill system, keep your bird bath water clean and eliminate other standing water. Attract the birds. Then there is no need to fog and kill off all those helpful dragonflies!
Firefighters deserve more respect
I am disgusted by the anonymous Sound Offs that repeatedly attack firefighters in our city. Firefighters put their lives on the line every day for the citizens of Brandon and they should be shown greater respect. The anonymous Sounds Offs are anything but that!
Need more parking patrols
How come a bylaw officer does not patrol parking lots that have handicapped parking and allow individuals to park there without the proper handicap designation. I am getting a little sick and tired of this.
The Winnipeg government and Portage la Prairie have got their noses so far up the government’s butt that they get top priority in getting the army to help them out. What about the people in western Manitoba where they are flooded and they can’t get into their homes? Did they get the army to help them out — no! And then they think that people in western Manitoba should vote for them come election time. I think not and I am likely the only one out here who thinks so. There is a very great danger out here!
