A happy ending to what could have possibly ended up as a tragedy.

A 15 year old South Shore girl is safe after she became lost in woods on Saturday in the Clearland area.

Lunenburg RCMP received a report of the girl being lost in woods Saturday afternoon.

RCMP Telecom was able to communicate with her via cell phone to determine her location.

Lunenburg County Search and Rescue and a police services dog sprang into action along with Natural Resources.

The girl was located about 2 hours later near Dorey Mills Road, cold and wet but otherwise in good condition.


Christmas tree growers in Nova Scotia are coming in from the field and on to the political platform.

The Executive Director of The Christmas Tree Council says growers are trying to get their say on a new provincial Forestry Strategy.

Matthew Wright says its taken three months and numerous letters to the Department of Natural resources, MLA's and councillors to get a meeting with the minister.

The Minister of Natural Resources, John MacDonnell, says the strategy will improve clear-cutting practices without over-regulating them.

The document is expected to be finalized by the end of this year.
