Haliburton-based company Maple Key Media has announced its acquisition of the Haliburton Echo, Minden Times, Bancroft This Week, and Barry’s Bay This Week from Sun Media. It has also purchased The Highlander Newspaper.

Maple Key Media’s director, Bram Lebo, will head up the group as publisher. He confirmed the company will retain existing staff and has no plans to close any of the newspapers.

“We are excited to bring these papers back under local ownership,” said Lebo. “These newspapers are vital to our communities and we accept that responsibility. Our focus will be on delivering the news through quality and innovative editorial content.”

“We are asking our communities to bear with us during this period of transition,” said Lebo. “This is a big change, but we’re confident in our decision to make this purchase and hope our readers are as excited as we are for what the future holds.”

Ottawa Valley Travel in Ontario’s Highlands is the first place in Ontario to open snowmobile trails! Rev your engines!

Distance sled finally got to get back on snow yesterday. Dogs & Hank were thrilled to be done with the ATV.  Wasn't a dull run either, 8 moose hanging out together on one remote section of trail.  That section might not get run much this winter!

The Day the Rob Ford Story Stopped Being Funny
esquire.com
Of the four men in the most famous image of Ford hanging out in the drug house, one is dead, two are in jail and the other remains the Mayor of Toronto.
“The reason I can’t laugh about Rob Ford anymore is that he has become a threat to the basic assumptions that allow politics to function. If this guy isn’t in jail, why bother having police at all? Why not just round up poor people whenever powerful people get the urge? The least we can do, it seem to me, is let everyone currently serving a sentence for drug use out of prison. Otherwise, the whole system is pure hypocrisy. Rob Ford is a threat to the still scared idea of equality under the law. Not even Will Ferrell could make that funny.”
