Almost every community in Ontario will be staging at least one old car show this summer. This 1956 Chevrolet Nomad, owned by Rick Moyer of Point Edward, was on display at the Optimist Club’s annual old car show held at Port Lambton in June 2017. Travel column Bob Boughner notes there are several cars shows being held in Ontario’s cottage country over the next few months. (Peter Epp/Postmedia Network)

Classic cars making return to cottage country

The sun is out, the temperature is rising and classic automobiles are hitting the roads in Ontario's cottage country. Plan to attend one or more of the popular antique and classic car shows taking place in the region this summer where like-minded fans will gather to check out these incredible rides.

The strawberry season is upon us in Chatham-Kent. Agricultural specialist Kim Cooper writes that some strawberries are now grown in the community from May until October, and notes there’s more reason for residents to eat local rather than consume imported strawberries.

No reason for imported strawberries in CK

Strawberries. Those red delicious berries bring back memories of going to the fields and picking with my mother so she could make strawberry jam. Thinking back now, I know I ate a lot more than I actually picked.

Blue Flag proudly waves over Lambton

Canatara Park beach, one of my favourite summer locations, is proudly displaying a Blue Flag this summer – the eco-certification represents the internationally-recognized gold-standard for water quality, environmental management and education, safety and amenities.

Okay, I am a firm believer that spring and possibly even summer will eventually arrive in our area and there will be a “warm breeze blowing the stars around”. If it does, that will herald the season of outdoor cocktail parties, summer barbecues or simply maybe a lot of drinking in public!

These Tecumseh Secondary School grads are among those who support keeping the totem pole, created by four students in the early 1970s, a part of the Chatham school. Historical columnists Jim and Lisa Gilbert agree and explain why. (File photo/The Daily News)

Why Tecumseh’s totem pole should be kept

Tecumseh Public School (or, as I recall it, Tecumseh Secondary School) holds a very special place in my heart. I have nothing but fond memories of that school and, although I know many people who seem to regard their high school years as ”the worst years of their lives”, I can firmly state that my high school years in that building were some of the

Fun facts about pigs

We all have eaten many products from our friend the pig. Bacon, pork chops, spare ribs, pork roast and so many other food items. But what do we really know about the pig? Today, let’s find our more.

Words are the very soul of our thoughts

“Words, words, words…” is part of a line spoken by Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the play of the same name. In this line he seems to suggest that words are of less value than action. But, as we all know (and Shakespeare better than most), words are powerful weapons that can maim more effectively than any weapon. Used effectively, words can travel right t

In this Wednesday, May 3, 2017, file photo, Sudan, the world's last male northern white rhino, is photographed at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia county in Kenya. Researchers say Sudan has died after "age-related complications." (AP Photo file)

Euthanasia for an old rhino, but . . .

What a sad, thought-provoking photo, published in the Globe and Mail newspaper. It shows Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, unable to stand. You can see the terrible frustration and pain on his face. Veterinarians, at the Pejeta Kenyan Conservancy, decided that since there was no quality of life left for Sudan, only unsolvable pain, the bes

Citizens risked their lives to see river’s fury

Many people in February experienced a surprising encroachment of the Thames River upon their homes, basements and property. It was surprising because there were not the usual ice jams at Prairie Siding, nor at the mouth to impede the waters progress. The waters cascading down the Thames were from excessive rain and melting snow.

The Thames River is shown flooding Simcoe Lane in downtown Chatham. Officials continue to monitor conditions. (Handout)

Flash storm spawned flash flood

In February we had a serious flood scare in Chatham and along the Thames River. That got me to thinking about past floods in our history, so I thought that I would dive back into my murky archives of high flood waters and recount some of the “big ones” from the past.
