The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Tuesday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Family section.
• Dispatch: 911 Emergency. Do you need police, fire or ambulance?
Male caller: I am at a restaurant and they put pickles on my burger and I didn’t want any.
It’s no joke and we’re not making it up. In the past year, someone on the Northeast Avalon has actually called 911 to lodge that nuisance complaint, according to officials.
And while it’s ridiculous, such calls are no laughing matter when they tie up 911 lines — possibly delaying handling of life-and-death calls — and tying up communications centre resources.
• Melanie Garland is not a friend of Gordon Anthony Bishop. In fact, she said she’s only met him a few times.
But on Monday, the woman vouched that she had been with Bishop at the time he reportedly committed a violent robbery last fall.
• The Barry Group of Corner Brook has bought P. Janes and Sons of Hants Harbour, and the president of the Fish, Food and Allied Workers union says that’s bad news for three rural communities in the province.
The acquisition was announced in a news release Monday morning. In the release, Barry Group CEO Bill Barry said the purchase of P. Janes and Sons — which operates three seafood production facilities in Hant’s Harbour, Salvage and Jackson’s Arm — “provides an excellent opportunity to provide stability for the Barry Group at a time when the fishing industry is faced with overcapacity and resource challenges.”
Earle McCurdy was blunt in assessing news of the transaction.
“You’d never say it from the new release, but in fact our understanding is they’re not going to operate (the facilities), so that’s quite a blow for those communities.”
