FACES OF FLAMBOROUGH: Margaret Cooper, wartime codebreaker
Margaret Cooper moved to Canada from England in 1945. She and her husband Craig lived in Hamilton for two years, but wanted to live in the country, so they bought a farm on the 8th Concession East in 1947 and she has lived in Flamborough ever since.

PARLIAMENT HILL: New benefits boost vets and families "On the surface $200 Million sounds like a great deal of money, a significant investment the government is making to those that have and who are serving in our Armed Forces.

PARLIAMENT HILL: Reducing gridlock
Grappling with traffic on area highways on any weekday morning or evening is a daily frustration for many Waterdown and Flamborough commuters. While I count myself fortunate to avoid some of this when in Ottawa, on the weeks that I am at home I know all too well the urgency of the problem.

MY VIEW: Just hop on the bus
Recently, Hamilton’s politicians were challenged to use public transit for five days. While a few councillors embraced the challenge, some had no choice but to decline because the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) doesn’t extend its service into the rural areas of our city
Don't miss this opportunity
Last Friday’s announcement that the Ontario Ministry of Education plans to kick in $10 million to build a new school in Beverly and upgrade the existing Spencer Valley School in Greensville – part of a $19-million funding commitment to the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board – was a welcome one indeed, and a natural follow-up to the comprehensive accommodation review process west Flamborough’s public school communities were engaged in at this time last year.

FROM THE GARDEN SHED: Get the most out of your rhodos
As a lover of rhododendrons, I clearly live in the wrong part of the world. These delightful spring-flowering, mostly evergreen shrubs require acidic soil, and we live on a foundation of limestone.
No increase for police
