Final Meeting For Water Issue Tonight, Progressive Waste Waives Bin Fee, Mortgage Study Released, And More!

 

SHOULD BE A FUN NIGHT AT THE UAW HALL IN WALLACEBURG TONIGHT WHEN THE PUC HOLDS THEIR THIRD AND FINAL PUBLIC MEETING ON THE WATER SUPPLY ISSUE.  STAN-TEC IS RECOMMENDING TO THE MUNICIPALITY OF WALLACEBURG SIMPLY TAP INTO THE CHATHAM SUPPLY FROM LAKE ERIE. THAT IS NOT THE POPULAR CHOICE AND A BIG CROWD IS EXPECTED OUT TONIGHT. DOORS OPEN AT 6:30 AND THE MEETING BEGINS AT 7.

PROGRESSIVE WASTE WILL REMOVE ONE OF THE TOP CONCERNS OF MANY WALLACEBURG RESIDENTS WHEN IT COMES TO THOSE BIG BLUE GARBAGE TOTES. THEY USED WALLACEBURG AND TILBURY FOR THEIR PILOT PROJECTS AND THE BIG COMPLAINTS WERE THE 75 DOLLAR COST, AND THE BINS WERE TOO HEAVY FOR OLDER RESIDENTS TO MOVE ON THEIR OWN. PROGRESSIVE WILL WAIVE THE 75 DOLLAR FEE AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR BIG HEAVY BLUE TOTE AFTER ALL.

ACCORDING TO A SURVEY BY THE CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF ACCREDITED MORTGAGE PROFESSIONALS 20 PER CENT OF CANADIANS HIT UP THE BANK OF MOM AND DAD FOR MONEY TO BUY THEIR FIRST HOME. 1 IN 5 THEY SAY WILL TAP MOM OR DAD ON THE SHOULDER AND ASK FOR THAT BIG CHUNK OF CASH. THE AVERAGE DOWN PAYMENT IN CANADA IS 119 THOUSAND DOLLARS..BUT FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS,  IT’S 67 THOUSAND.

THE LARGEST STUDY EVER DONE ON PARENTAL AGE BEING A FACTOR IN HAVING AN AUTISTIC CHILD SHOWS THERE IS A BIG CONNECTION. 5 MILLION CHILDREN IN 5 COUNTRIES WERE STUDIED AND THE NUMBER SHOWED OLDER PARENTS AND TEEN MOMS HAVE A HIGHER CHANCE OF HAVING A CHILD WITH AUTISM. IN FACT IF DAD IS IN HIS 40’S IT’S NEARLY A 30 PER CENT HIGHER RISK THEN IF DAD IS IN HIS 20’S. THEY NOW SAY  1 IN 68 CHILDREN ARE BORN WITH AUTISM.
