The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Thursday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Community section.
• Former owners of the Beaver Brook antimony mine in central Newfoundland are crying foul over the mine’s idling. They want the provincial government to provide former employees and the public with more information on why it happened.
The last of about 90 layoffs at the mine, first announced in late November, came into effect this week. Only about 10 workers have been kept on for maintenance and potential exploration work.
• A teenaged girl who helped orchestrate a scheme to attack and rob a man in Mount Pearl last fall has been sentenced to nine months’ open custody. It means the 18-year-old will serve her term in a group home, to be followed by 4 1/2 months of community supervision and probation.
• Newfoundland and Labrador gets the worst bang for its buck when it come to health-care spending, according to a study released Tuesday by the Fraser Institute.
But Health Minister Susan Sullivan said the study doesn’t consider all the facts, and it doesn’t tell the whole story.
