Passed away peacefully at the Wales Home, Richmond on Thursday, September 29, 2011 at the age of 94.
As October quickly approaches, so does the half-way point of the RSEQ football season, and this weekend especially may be an important telling point for all teams involved as several big games are slated to take place over the next couple of days.
The Bishopâs Gaiters football team will be traveling to Montreal on Friday to take on the McGill Redmen in what should be a highly exciting bout. The game is a part of McGillâs annual âfill the stadiumâ event, which usually draws in some of the biggest crowds of the year to the Percival Molson Stadium.
Full disclosure. I donât watch a lot of hockey. I grew up playing basketball, watching basketball, and now coach basketball. The thought of a winter without the NBA is gut wrenching â especially since the league is coming off one its most compelling seasons in years.
For runners, choosing the right shoe is vital because a perfect fit is necessary for long-term running sustainability. Think of a hockey goalie wearing the wrong mask with a bad fit. He may be fine for a few games but sooner or later, well, you get the picture.
Less than ten citizens attended an informational meeting about the City of Sherbrookeâs controversial new zoning regulation Wednesday night, but the few that did attend raised some serious questions about the plan that city representatives seemed to have difficulty trying to answer.
A new research chair at the UniversitĂ© de Sherbrooke will attempt to identify the causes of type 2 diabetes in the hopes of being able to one day treat the chronic disease very early, or even establish preventative measures against it.
The newly established chair, announced at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, will focus on the role of fatty foods in acting as a trigger for the disease.
New staff, an election bid and several other highlights filled the agenda Tuesday night at the monthly meeting of the Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) council of commissioners in Magog.
Topping the meeting was the announcement that ETSB Chairman Michael Murray will be running for the position of President of the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA).
This Sunday Townshippers of all ages will be lacing up and giving breast cancer a five-kilometre run for its money when Sherbrooke hosts its second CIBC Run for the Cure.
After a successful inaugural event last autumn, run co-director, Diane Morissette and her team are anxious and excited to see people walk, jog and run around Lac des Nations to help create a future without breast cancer.
This summer while Townshippers enjoyed their fun in the sun, they were blissfully unaware that a tall, dark, supernatural serial killer was stalking the woods and leaving a bloody trail of the all too curious.
Itâs strange yes, but is it true? Well not quite.
The killer, woods and group of too curious vacationing friends, form the storyline for the 1980âs slasher film âThe Devilâs Musicâ which was captured on film in Lennoxville and North Hatley in August.
The inconveniences posed by a summer of almost continuous bridge repair and construction are coming to an end for those living in Cowansville and the surrounding area.
