“TRUCK DRIVER  ‘ BANKING’  ON DOWNTOWN TURN LEAVES AYLMER ‘BROKE’  (AND HIMSELF POORER AS WELL)!”

Aylmer – A 24-year old transport truck driver from a Hensall firm was charged with careless driving and fined over $600 for an incident at the main intersection on Thursday morning. The driver, westbound on Talbot St.,  turned north on John St. but his trailer, fully loaded with cattle,  mounted the northeast sidewalk by the Bank of Montreal. In backing up and pulling ahead the trailer knocked the crosswalk mechanism off the pole but then he didn’t stop. Witnesses called Aylmer Police and the driver was halted by Harrietsville and charged. On further inspection, other trucking violations were found ie. driving a commercial vehicle with a major defect, failing to maintain a proper log and the driver was fined. The owner of the truck was also fined over $600 for failing to have proper insurance inspections and improper functioning equipment.

Pt. Bruce Flood Advisory-January 22, 2010-January 25, 2010 =Flood ADVISORY Message
Catfish Creek Conservation Authority has issued a flood advisory for low lying flood prone areas. Expected warm temperatures will initiate runoff conditions across the Catfish Creek watershed, effective  January 22nd until January 25, 2010 at 1200 hrs.
People are warned to stay away from ditches, streams, rivers and ponds as the combination of slippery banks and fast-flowing water is very dangerous. Keep your children away from floodplain areas.
Residents should monitor local weather conditions and preventative steps should be taken now to ensure that nothing in your yard will float away.
A flood warning may follow if weather conditions warrant.
HAITI UPDATE: (From Mission Site of Joy Jones, mother in law of Anneke (Barbour) Jones, formerly of Aylmer)

“We Were Able to Find 10,000 More Pounds of Rice!!!

Unloading 10,000 Pounds of Rice to Distribute to the People in Our Villages
Framework for Temporary Housing Structures

This morning our Haitian workers were able to find another 10,000 pounds of rice to distribute plus spaghetti to villages in our area near Leogane. The US Marines are also distributing meal replacement drinks and continue to bring injured people to be treated at our Neply Clinic.

Pastor Antoine located lumber, some tools and heavy plastic so today our men are all busy working on building temporary shelters for the people. Each shelter will have a wood frame, plastic roof and cloth walls and will house 20 -30 people in each.

Every day they start with a 4:00 am prayer service and everyone seems to be working together in unity to help each other survive each new day! At 6:00pm each evening another prayer meeting is held until about 8:00 and then everyone goes to bed for the night.

Without your financial support, we would not be able to offer hope to these people!!

With sincere thanks,

Joy Jones”
