Free Family Day Skating schedule

Five Things - 2It’s Family Day Weekend! A provincial holiday celebrated in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The newest of the holidays, we’ve been “celebrating” in Ontario since 2008.

There are free swims in Blenheim and Wallaceburg, a free movie at the Capitol and some free skating for the family on Monday.

Garbage and recycling will be pushed back one day next week.


Five Things - 3Munic CKHundreds of property owners in Chatham-Kent have had their bills returned to the municipality because Canada Post isn’t delivering the bills if they don’t have specific 911 house numbers on them.

If you haven’t received a tax bill yet, you should give the municipality a call as soon as possible to ensure your mailing address information is updated (519-360-1998)

The municipality also wants to make one thing clear to residents: failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt a property owner from paying the required taxes.


Five Things - 4monopolyHasbro just announced yesterday that the thimble game piece has been voted out of Monopoly.

They’ve been running a vote where people can pick a new game piece, and to make room, one of the old ones had to go. The thimble is the second “domestic” item to be removed from the game in the past four years. The iron was removed in 2013 and replaced by a cat.

The new piece will be announced next month.


Five Things - 5mcdonald's golden archesMcDonald’s had engineers invent a curved straw to use with their new Chocolate Shamrock Shake.

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake has a layer of mint flavoured shake on top of a layer of chocolate. And they worked with engineers to create this crazy snorkel-shaped straw that allows you to suck from both layers at the same time.
