I found A Sacktown Artifact! 



 Check this out. I was digging through some old shoeboxes and found this. From the Shoppers Drug Mart at the old Town Centre. I remember  seeing many of these hanging off keychains back in the day! Didn’t they also come in neon green?  I figure this is from the late 80’s. 

 This is in mint condition – probably worth, like, hundreds of pennies!

Safety Notice to Clear Snow, Ice Away from Fuel Lines and Vents

The Office of the Fire Marshal and the Emergency Management Office are recommending to everyone who uses oil, natural gas or propane gas to clear snow and ice away from the supply lines, vents and air intakes.

Government has been made aware of several incidents where snow loads have blocked outside vents or where snow has moved and ice has shifted, breaking fuel lines to heating and other appliances.

Owner of money located

Halifax Regional Police has located the owner of the money that was found in Dartmouth earlier this year.
 
On February 9, officers responded to a Dartmouth thrift store after an employee located several thousands of dollars hidden inside a bundle of folded drapes. The money was contained within several sealed envelopes and the information inside indicated that the money would have been withdrawn in 2006 from a Guysborough County bank. A media release was issued on February 13 in an attempt to locate the owner.
 
Earlier this month, a woman contacted police and advised that she had donated the personal belongings of a loved one who passed away in January 2015 to charity. Investigators were able to verify through the woman and the bank that the money belonged to the person who had passed away. The money has since been turned over to the next of kin.
 
We extend our sincere thanks to the employee of the Dartmouth thrift store who found the money and did the right thing by turning it over to police so that it could be returned to the rightful owner.
 
Halifax Regional Police thanks the media and the public for their assistance in this matter.

Overnight Parking Ban will continue to be enforced Friday, Feb. 27

Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Please be advised that the municipal overnight winter parking ban will continue to be enforced from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 27, to facilitate snow and ice removal operations on the streets.

Vehicles must be off municipal streets during the hours noted above. Residents should also be aware that under section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if they are parked in a manner that interferes with snow clearing.

As well, in order to further optimize mobility, visibility and ultimately safety, the municipality is using temporary No Parking signage on select streets in the Halifax region where it is particularly difficult for local traffic, buses and emergency service providers to navigate around parked vehicles. This step is often taken during the winter months and is permitted under Section 151 of the Motor Vehicle Act. Motorists are advised to obey these restrictions or risk being ticketed or towed.

The overnight winter parking ban is in effect from now until March 31. It will be enforced only during declared snow and ice events and snow removal operations.

The easiest way to be prepared when snow is coming is to sign up for CityWatch notifications of parking bans. Fill out a registration form, call 311 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Subscribers will receive timely alerts by phone, email, and/or text message when the ban is in effect and again when it is lifted. Residents who received these notifications last winter will continue to receive the service this year. Standard text messaging rates apply.

For more information on snow clearing operations, visit www.halifax.ca/snow.
