Yarmouth - The Yarmouth SPCA is holding a super special for the month of October. For $13, approved applicants can adopt a spayed, neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped adult black cat.
We thought we’d do lucky black cats and lucky 13, double the good luck,” said Yarmouth SPCA’s Kaitlin Bourque.

The Municipality of Argyle wants the province to look at a couple of areas of Highway 103 where concerns have been raised about traffic safety.
One of them is where motorists turn off to go to Nakile Home for Special Care.
The other is Exit 31, Highway 103’s Pubnico-area exit.
Argyle council member Danny Muise – who sits on a Highway 103 committee, along with representatives of other municipal units along the 103 – reported at Argyle council’s Oct. 14 meeting that he had brought council’s concerns about both the Nakile turn-off and Exit 31 to the attention of the Highway 103 committee.
Concern about the section of highway near Nakile Home for Special Care has been raised by a number of people who say they have had close calls there.
East-bound vehicles, for example, exiting the 103 to go to Nakile have no lane specifically for turning off. Cars have to slow down to make the right-hand turn while other east-bound vehicles – cars headed towards Pubnico – come up right behind them.
The Pubnico exit itself (Exit 31) is an issue too, concern having been expressed about the fact that it has a high volume of traffic. It’s also an area where fog can make driving more difficult.
Addressing his fellow Argyle councillors at their regular meeting last week, Muise said he couldn’t say what might be done with regard to either issue, only that he had brought both of them to the committee.
Each of these issues… 1
