An angler who visited Little Falls on the Upper Humber River recently feels it’s time the provincial government spent a few dollars to repair the steps that take anglers down to one of the favourite pools on the river.
“They installed the steps some years back but now they need repairs. Trees have fallen and smashed a few rails and some of the steps are broken and a danger,” he said.
“It would only take a few pieces of pressure-treated two-by-four, a saw, a handful of nails and a couple of hours of labour. Not all that much really, but it could save some angler an injury on those steps.”
This call came in to the Roamer:
“It’s very interesting to see that the cabinet met in Corner Brook last week. It was also interesting to see they found a million dollars here and a million dollars there as they campaigned in Stephenville.
“I’d like them to all go up and have a good look at our new hospital so they will know what’s going on and how far advanced we are.
“They should go look at the old hospital too,” the caller said.
August month is on its last legs and it’s time to dig out the Old Farmer’s Almanac to see what it has to say about the weather outlook for September.
The month begins on a ominous note from the first to the fourth with a tropical storm threat. The period from the fifth to the eighth is expected to be sunny and cool, according to the almanac.
The days from the ninth to the 17th should bring showers turning sunny and mild. The 18th to the 21st will turn rainy and stay mild.
The month is expected to end from the 22nd to the 30th with showers and cool temperatures.
