People are always complaining about drivers going too slow on Highway 107.
Did you know that from where Highway 107 starts in Musquodoboit Harbour to the East Preston turnoff it is approximately 24.7kms? Many people complain that some drivers are driving too slow on the highway at only 90km/hour or even say 80km/hr. What if you drive 110km/hr or 120km/hr? How much time will you actually save driving from Musquodoboit Harbour to the East Preston turnoff?

VDay is an art show, a silent auction, a costume party, and an empowering event through dance, stories, and songs. It is also a celebration of women’s bodies, and an acknowledgement of the difficulties women face and have faced in this community and in communities around the world.

The bad news about Lyme disease and the black-legged ticks that carry the disease keeps getting worse. Nova Scotians love the great outdoors, but the continuing spread of these tiny ticks across the province makes thorough post-outdoors inspections critical for avoiding potentially life-long pain and suffering.
By Richard Bell
There are bitter disagreements about the best way to treat Lyme disease. But there is no disagreement among tick fighters about the first line of defense:
Do a Tick Inspection Whenever You May Have Been Around Ticks

This is Andrew Maize, who is finishing up as a visiting artist in Musquodoboit Harbour in residency at the Railway Museum, the Old School, the Library and HRM, care of Visual Arts Nova Scotia(VANS).
