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: 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.

was dismayed by the article in yesterday s Echo telling us of the promotional video that is being made. I wasn t dismayed by the idea of the video itself, as that s a great idea. The problem is the use of the phrase Unwind Local.
