Bridgewater Mayor here to stay until October

Bridgewater's mayor plans to man the helm until October. Carroll Publicover says he will finish his term of mayor until municipal elections October 20.
"I see that as a commitment I've made to the community and I don't like to leave things undone. I want to get as much done as I can, be a part of positive and progressive growth in the community between now and October."
Publicover wouldn't get into details about what he planned to do after finishing mayoral duties. He says he has a number of things in the works, but isn't commenting at this time.

Yarmouth Catches Hockeyville Fever

Hockey fans in Yarmouth could have a lot to cheer about this weekend. The MHL Bent Division finals kick-off on Saturday night at the Mariners Centre. In addition, CBC Sports is also expected to reveal the top five communities in Canada to go on the final round of the Kraft Hockeyville contest. Yarmouth is one of the communities in the running to take home the top prize in the contest. The winner receives $100,000 for arena upgrades, not to mention an NHL pre-season game. Both municipal units in Yarmouth have made financial contributions for two huge banners to promote their Hockeyville bid which will be unveiled at the Mariners game this weekend.
