The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Monday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Sports section.
• Staff at the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (CNLOPB) are looking into a safety concern raised relating to industrial instrumentation checks offshore, after being contacted on the topic by The Telegram last week.
There is an allegation unqualified workers have been performing checks on offshore instrumentation, signing off on paperwork stating instruments are working properly and are safe for continued use.
The allegation was made to The Telegram and, when contacted to see if similar reports had reached safety officers at the offshore regulator, CNLOPB staff said they had not heard of any such complaint.
• Peter Penashue shocked the province last week when he announced his resignation as the MP for Labrador in light of accepting donations for his 2011 election campaign that were found to be illegal.
The Receiver General has been reimbursed for $30,000 and Penashue has made his intentions clear — he will run again in a byelection
Penashue, who released a statement through the Conservative Party of Canada, said he was not aware of inaccuracies filed with Elections Canada and maintained they were the result of mistakes made by his official agent, Reginald Bowers.
Given the circumstances surrounding Penashue’s resignation, The Telegram hit the streets over the weekend to ask people in St. John’s: should he be a candidate in the upcoming byelection? Check the print editions for what people said.
• Even Shelia didn’t seem to have the gusto in her to trounce the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Sunday dawned with what seemed to be the perfect setting for the legend that a woman of some relation to St. Patrick brushes the last of the winter season away with a final storm. Light flurries St. Patrick’s Day morning were just enough to let one wonder if a bit of the Irish magic was in the air without discouraging revellers planning on celebrating their Irish roots, regardless of how much or how little flowed through their veins. On St. Patrick’s Day, after all, it is said you can build the Irish up in your blood with either green beer or, for those with true grit, pints of dark Guinness.
