This issue of the Orono Weekly Times marks our one-year anniversary of taking over the paper. In my first editorial on August 15, 2018 I wrote: ‘I do believe that local newspapers are the heart and soul of our community.’ I had a direction I wanted the paper to take – and although it’s not quite there yet, I feel I have been true to my goal.
During our summer break I attended the second Town Hall meeting, in Tyrone, regarding the proposed rezoning of rural land in Clarington – the Zone Clarington Project. Since the first meeting in Kendal, the group has become more organized. Under the name Rezoning Clarington, they have formed a strategy committee and a working committee.
