Good morning.
That’s the view from The Telegram-Ches Penney Family YMCA a few minutes ago.
It’s nice, cool autumn morning — 9 degrees at the St. John’s International Airport.
It’d be a great one for a walk in the woods to burn off some of that turkey, for sure.

A 14-year-old Corner Brook youth was taken to hospital and treated for a head injury on Friday after allegedly being hit in the head with a brick.

This was posted on our Facebook page over the Thanksgiving weekend...
HARLEY was lost on Monday Oct. 2nd but was seen on Tuesday by some people who tried to catch him (he was very dirty and stressed out) but unfortunately he ran back in the woods. He was on the Outer Ring Road, just before the turn off to exit Team Gushue. Tonight (Thursday) the owner received a call from a woman saying that on Tuesday or Wednesday, she saw a couple stopped on the side of the road (they had a black car), at the EXACT SPOT where Harley was seen, and that they were with a black and white dog. They seemed to be having a bit of trouble with the dog. She assumed that it was their dog but after seeing the post about Harley, she can tell that the dog that was with the couple looked like Harley. Has anybody else seen Harley or the people with the black and white dog? With all the traffic going by, there is a chance that somebody saw something...please share this info far and wide, somebody might have seen something that would help bring Harley home !!
If you have any information, please contact: Dawn Oliver. 709-579-1821

A reminder to take part in our new poll...

How safe to do you feel?

When criminal beahaviour hits close to home, people tend to feel the amount of crime is on the rise, even if statistically that’s not always the case. Of course, there are also crimes that go unreported.

The Telegram wants to know how you feel about crime where you live, whether it's drinking and driving, break-ins, vandalism, assault, or any other crime. Do you feel safe in your neighbourhood or community?

Take a couple of minutes complete our Crime Survey. You don’t have to give your name, but we'd like to know how you feel about a topic that has the potential to touch us all.

Anyone in the province can complete the survey, but please do so only once. We will tabulate the results for 30 days and then report our findings back to you.

You can find our survey HERE, and you are welcome to expand upon the questionaire in the comments section below. Friends on mobile devices can fill out the survey HERE. Thanks for taking part.
