While the Province pulling funding for Sport Alliance makes the Future of Ontario Games unclear, what remains clear is, the Haliburton 55+ Summer Games are underway and could prove the most successful ever. Our seniors play, compete and have fun with...

I am calling on the government in the strongest terms to provide increased, stable, long-term funding to our municipalities in the upcoming federal budget. Currently, despite providing increased services, municipalities receive only eight to nine cents...

I have always been so proud to be a Canadian. We have been perceived as nice, funny and generous people by the world as a whole. Our armed forces, which were modest for most of my life, were sent around the world in a peacekeeping capacity.

I am saddened to hear of the possible closing of V & S. They have been a cornerstone business for years. I guess we are all getting what we deserve. When people boast about how they got some item cheaper online or that it is cheaper in Peterborough....

Thank you for the article last week about the significant gaps in the Internet broadband service. Your story was from north of the village of Haliburton. South, on the Old Donald Road, we are struggling with the same issues of cost and reliability.

To the Editor, We live in a very legalistic era, so much so that people spend time sorting out what they can do and what they can t do, leaving very little time to do what they should do. Lately much time has been devoted on should marijuana be...

I read with interest and some nostalgia the article from the March 7, 1995 edition of The Echo which talks of closing 43 lake trout lakes to winter fishing and restricting fishing on 42 others. Twenty years ago, the outdoors association used the MNR ...

Six years ago I made a life changing decision to move to the Highlands. Not being a native of the Highlands, I was unfamiliar with its unique beauty, countless lakes, overwhelming wildlife, or the people that I was fortunate enough to meet and...

Glad to read it Haliburton Highlands Health Services money is a provincial grant received for rebranding, because it sounds like HHHS has already been rebranded and it sure needs to get that news out. Just to review the bidding here, HHHS offers acute..

I don t like to be the one to identify the life-threatening hazard that ice fishing roads pose to other users of our frozen lakes. I am the last one to condemn other user groups that want to share the recreation opportunities that our natural...

Conversations in the community often are about the great health care we receive with a dedicated staff. There has been a strong volunteer effort of thousands of hours. The financial donations to HHHS almost weekly are reported in the news.

Re: HHHS to spend $50,000 to rebrand After reading in the Feb. 3 edition of the Haliburton Echo that the HHHS is to receive $50,000(!) to fund rebranding of the organization, I was extremely disappointed.

Council and The Echo have ignored the fact that this event will have a negative impact on the ecology of Head Lake. For example, we know that such motorized craft churn up sediment to the extent that the gills of aquatic insects (fish food) become....

RE: the tourism saying I can t even bring myself to write. Several years ago when I moved to this county, I asked a lodge owner why he hired university students from elsewhere as summer workers when the unemployment rate among local people was so high.

Regarding Ms. Bell s letter A grammatical disgrace and Mr. Bush s letter Two wrongs don t make a right, I wholeheartedly concur. To the county tourism committee members, please, communicate clear!

There has been a lot of talk these days about the maintenance of our winter roads. Carol Moffatt posted a picture on Facebook the other weekend of the deplorable conditions on Hwy 35 at 1:30 p.m. It seems like Carillion has a clause in their contract...
