Ladies and Gentlemen

Monday’s election set Midland upon a new course. While appreciative of the good work of Jim Downer, the people recognized that to resolve some of our key issues, such as taxes and jobs, we are going to have to change the way that we do things.

In keeping with that theme, I am changing the way that I will communicate with you. News from the Town has been useful in letting you know about upcoming events for the Town and Council, but it provides little on the background or policy implications. So which is better? - to suspend News from the Town and switch to a website; or leave news from the Town as it is and put more policy related comment out through other means. Let me know what should be done with News from the Town over the next four years.


The International Festival of Authors comes to Midland on November 1st and 2nd starting at 7:30 pm at the Midland Library. Tickets are a modest $10, available at the door.

Usually November 3rd would see the regular Planning Advisory Committee meeting. The meeting has been cancelled for November.

On Thursday November 4th your will have to get up at 7:00 am to enjoy the Employer Breakfast (no charge) at the Brooklea Golf and County Club. Your chance to hear about matters related to employment in our area. Please RSVP to the NSCFDC at 526-1371 ext.110.

Friday November 5th at the Village Square Mall in Penetanguishene sees the start of the MARC used book sale. Always a lot of fun. Friday hours are 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, while Saturday hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

And Saturday November 6th is reserved for some good music. Six different groups will celebrate the brilliant legacy of Jack Beauchamp from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Midland Legion. Tickets are $10.00
