July's Our Isle & Times

bike's picture

We are celebrating a very special birthday today on our island, so don't delay in opening the paper!

Unfortunately, we are also reeling from the recent property tax deadline...this issue explores why everyone has been hit with a larger-than-ever increase and what you can do about it.

Our Roads Update is still accurate, but we just received notice that a specific date has been scheduled for the start of the dust suppression treatment: Saturday, July 13.

We have an exclusive to Our Isle & Times from Dr. Stephen Malthouse, M.D. (and a candidate - for about 6 hours - in our riding for the upcoming October 19 provincial election) detailing 4 important new pieces of legislation and how they may affect us.

Plus a new series highlights two Boat Charter services, just in time for Summer fun!

As well as all the usual favourites: Jen continues to cut to the core of the male circumcision issue, Gord inspires us how to do one of the most important tasks in growing a garden, Anicca has a timely recipe, the boys have timely one-liners, a great NVC feelings list, and Tolling shares an important history lesson in The Last Word.

There is another Retraction, unfortunately...with lots more humour and art woven in from start to finish.
