Friday night at the public library you couldn't find a single shushing librarian in the place. As a matter of fact, they were playing ukeleles and leading a holiday sing-along that could only be described as delightfully cacophonous.

This is the first year that the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library has had programming on the opening night of the Festival of Northern Lights. The staff made the decision collectively, and they were pleased by the warm response from the public.

Speaking at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting this week, MP Larry Miller fielded questions from attendees about the fate of Owen Sound Harbour. Miller said he has "staked his reputation" on the harbour's being dredged, and that he expects the federal government to cover the cost.

"Hats off to the United Way for growing this program" Safe n' Sound staff Connie McKay declared.

"When Safe n' Sound announced their Street Store and that they were collecting outerwear we decided that two programs were not needed, and we reached out to Safe n' Sound to see if they were interested in taking over our outreach role in the local coat drive" explained United Way Executive Director Francesca Dobbyn.
