A woman called this week in anticipation of Corner Brook’s Bill Barry running to be leader of the provincial Tories and premier.
“I’m shocked and disappointed he’s considering running. He’s not right for the leadership,” she said.
“I consider him not in touch with the people.
“If he wins it’ll only be because of the amount of money he can spend and we’ve had enough of that,” she said.
Another woman called recently to complain about drivers who park in front of the steps leading to the Millbrook Mall in Corner Brook.
She says when you do manage to manoeuver onto the steps you too often find another driver has parked at the bottom.
“Common sense would dictate that you wouldn’t park in the way of pedestrians. But that’s me, but I have some consideration for others,” she said.
Most people in this region won’t be sad to see the end of January and now we move on to looking at what we can expect in the way of weather for February according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The days from the 10th to the 19th bring more flurries and mild temperatures.
The period from the 20th to the 24th will bring a snowstorm then turn to flurries and cold.
