The Sci-fi series , Haven is staying in Lunenburg for another season.

The South-shore-based production has been renewed for a second season.

The story is based on the novel 'Colorado Kid'  by author, Stephen King and stars John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern and Laszlo Barna.

The town itself also plays a leading role as a mysterious refuge for people with supernatural powers.

Since debuting this summer the show boasts 2.6 million national viewers.


 Police have issued a plea for help in finding a missing Bridgewater teen who disappeared after an argument with a family member.

Police say fifteen year-old Matthew baker has been missing since Tuesday.

He was last seen at Bridgewater high school on October 12th, during the evening hours.

He is described as a Caucasian male, six-feet tall with blue eyes, short brown hair and a thin build.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black t-shirt, a green-blue hoodie, a black jacket and white sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bridgewater Police or their local police detachment.


A Bridgewater teenager who was accused of stabbing a man 12 times has changed his plea to "guilty".

The 16-year-old from Bridgewater admitted yesterday in Bridgewater Provincial Court that he repeatedly stabbed a man outside a house party earlier this year.

The identity of the youth is protected under legislation.

He will be sentenced next month on a single count of assault with a weapon.


The Town of Bridgewater will be pumping 205-thousand dollars into its waste-water treatment plant and sewer facilities.

Numerous pumps, panels and electrical systems will be replaced.
Town council pre-approved the sum from the 2011/2012 budget.

Mayor Caroll Publiclover says upgrades to the system are necessary.

"Allow them to be computer compatible. They'll be able to provide data and take commands from the computer. And they will be reporting very useful data (on) whether they are functioning properly, that's one of the most important parts but there's also various components of the lift stations that are just wearing out," says Publiclover.

The current pumps are more than ten years old and replacement parts are obsolete.

The contract for the design and build of the new treatment plant and sewer lift station has been awarded to Automated Systems Group for more than 261-thousand dollars.


The Town of Bridgewater is keeping a community bulletin board out of the new park on Aberdeen Road.

The Rotary Club had requested permission to place the board adjacent to already existing signs for MADD Canada and the Desbrisay museum on the corner of LaHave Street and Aberdeen Road.

Mayor Caroll Publiclover says the request was denied because a Rotary sign board does not belong in a town park.

He says town planners will gladly work with the club to find a more appropriate location for their community bulletins.
