School Sites

Three possible sites for the new P to 9 school for Lunenburg have been identified by the South Shore Regional School Board, Superintendent Nancy Pynch-Worthylake says the Board approved the Finance and Operations report on the ranking of the host sites, which now gets forwarded to the Department of Education. A public meeting has been scheduled for Lunenburg Junior Senior High School for June 29th at 7 p.m., but Pynch-Worthylake says that's only for information purposes. The sites will not be announced publicly until they are evaluated and considered by the province.

Party Crashed

RCMP from two Shelburne county detachments had to be called in to break up a house party that appeared to have gotten out of hand. Sergeant Bob Forbes says officers from Barrington were called around one o'clock Wednesday morning to a complaint of assault. That was at a home on Highway 103 near Clyde River. Sergeant Forbes says there were around 200 people there when they rolled up. Beer bottles were thrown at the police cruiser and a fire was started on the highway. More officers were called in from Shelburne and Barrington as the party-goers spread out onto the highway. The RCMP and the homeowner closed down the party and moved the revellers along. One male was taken into custody and was later taken by ambulance to Roseway Hospital in Shelburne. He was treated for minor injuries and released. Sergeant Forbes says the scene was cleared by around two this morning. He adds members are still investigating and are still deciding if charges will be laid.
