A slip on the ice ended up hurting in more ways than one for a Bridgewater man in his 60's.  Paramedics were called to the scene of a man who was lying on a path after slipping on an icy surface.  John William Godfrey was taken to his apartment and helped inside.  However, police were called to assist in locating Godfrey's medication.  They spotted a plastic bag of cigarettes on top of a microwave and Godfrey was charged with having unstamped tobacco product.  He was fined 500 dollars for having 148 illegal cigarettes.

A big week for a long-time Dayspring resident.   Ron Allen is now a member of the Progressive Conservative Party. And he is the first person to announce his candidacy for the riding of Lunenburg.  A 38 year resident of the community has retired after more than 36 years with Michelin.  Allen is an ironman competitor who believes in promoting awareness about physical activity.  He tells CKBW he's never run for office before and feels he can offer good representation for the people in the riding.  The Constituency Association will chose it's candidate at a meeting next Wednesday evening at seven o'clock at the Mahone Bay Firehall.  So far, Ron Allen is the only person to tell us he's interested in running for the Conservatives in Lunenburg, a seat held by the late Michael Baker for ten years.
