play ball!

Tonight was the launch of “semi-organized” community sports, one of the reasons why life is SO good in Bells Corners.
IF
Tons of Westcliffe residents were out for the first pitch of the t-ball season.

It was such such a joyous occasion that I don’t want to sound a sour note, but isn’t t-ball sort of a dumb sport, with ridiculously complicated rules for such young kids? It’s mostly just kids standing around waiting for something to happen, while parents socialize and gossip. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

You know a business won’t be there long when they put up their signs with duct tape!
The firecracker man will be back this year, much to the chagrin of local residents who have to listen to the 3 a.m. cacophony as teens yuck it up in local parks with illegally obtained incendiary devices.

The owner of this franchise business (pop-up fireworks stores that get two-month leases to cash in on Victoria and Canada Days) has over a hundred stores nationwide (mostly in the GTA, but Ottawa has four). Apparently he’s made of money – putting explosives into the hands of teenagers is big business!

What is this guy up to?
IF
He’s a Bells Corners resident practicing his rugby kicks. Rugby is one tough sport, as witnessed by the recent Bell HS tournament. Sometimes kids even get killed!

Many dogs regard the Bells Corners FREE Bike-taxi with suspicion, and Alex’s watchdogs are especially wary.

Here’s a reminder that the $3M Moodie/Robertson boondoggle is not just a bad dream – it’s coming soon!

Here’s a plug for Haveli’s in the Westcliffe plaza. Now that Lapointe’s has moved on to greener pastures, many of the remaining small businesses, even Zola’s, are feeling the financial pain of being in a half-empty strip mall. Here’s the latest tenant to take French leave.

Anybody recognize this bike? It’s sitting there unlocked outside of the Bells Corners cigar/magazine/post office store. Must be stolen and abandoned.

NOT a wise place to poster. The glue on the tape is a bugger to get off once UV rays have done their job. Why don’t you use your own official censored Jennifer-box?
IF
If you put it up you should take it down!

GREENBELT
The Greenbelt will apparently be going to the highest bidder. Are our scummy politicians on the right track?
