Cumberland County -
An international experience
SACKVILLE, N.B. - For almost 10 days, Springhill native Alexa MacDonald helped to improve living conditions for a five-member family.
MacDonald, a first-year environmental sciences student at Mount Allison University, was part of a Medical Brigade that traveled to Honduras last month.
MacDonald was one of around 60 students that traveled to Honduras as two groups. While one group worked more on the medical side of things, MacDonald was part of the public health brigade that worked on things like home renovations.
County concerned about arena policy
UPPER NAPPAN - In response to a letter to the editor in the Amherst Daily News on March 5 ("Shame on 'you know who'"), the Municipality of Cumberland County is questioning the Town of Amherst's policy when it comes to hospitality rooms at the stadium.
District 2 councillor John Kellegrew made a motion during the council meeting Wednesday to send a letter to the stadium commission asking the town to explain its policy on hospitality rooms and possibly to reconsider it.
The letter states drinks and hot foods can't be served in the hospitality room, even if the foods have been donated.
