Picton’s Bird Loreto swoops to second place in County Marathon

Story and photos by Olivia Timm Picton’s Bird Loreto was just 10 minutes away from being the first local man to win the County Marathon. Instead, John Bauer, 23, of Hamilton crossed the line first in 2:50, followed by Loreto in 3:00. Gilles Gobeil, of Gatineau, was third across the line a minute later. Perfect […]

The pain of being number one

The pain of being number one

Last time I talked about the new wave of tourists this summer. I hope I made it clear that our usual summer visitors still come and enjoy the County for everything it is. The ‘destination’ seekers are indeed a different crowd – notable by their attitude, their lack of respect, and their sheer volume. This […]

Curb appeal is number one for a home’s first impression

As real estate agents continue to analyze the value of our homes, trying to squeeze every last dollar out of them, the front yard continues to be one area that should get a lot of attention when it comes time to sell. Online and business experts place the value of the front yard somewhere between […]

A whole new (tourist) world

A whole new (tourist) world

Okay, there has been much discussion over this new wave of tourists who have ‘discovered’ the County. I feel your pain.

Complaining about the neighbour's yard

Complaining about the neighbour’s yard

I had a great conversation recently with a distraught homeowner complaining about their neighbour’s yard. They were desperately seeking some advice as to how to handle a next-door neighbour with an unkempt yard because they were certain that the home was hurting their property value. This is such a tricky subject. Your neighbour’s property impacts […]

CIBC Bloomfield: The Final Chapter

CIBC Bloomfield: The Final Chapter

It’s been a while since I’ve addressed the issue of the closing of the CIBC bank in Bloomfield which, as time marches on, looms ever closer. I can’t say that this was a heartless, thoughtless and plain bonehead stupid move – even from a financial point of view, and a total disregard for customer service. […]
