What's Trending Tues Aug 18: Amber Alert results from Joke, Election is Sept 14, Covid19 Update, Main Street going back to normal,

Today's Weather: more clouds. 30 percent chance of PM showers. Humidex 28. 
- Amber Alert from PEI yesterday:
A witness contacted the authorities in Summerside yesterday because they saw a girl in a car yelling that she was being kidnapped. An Amber Alert went out with a description and other details.
Later on yesterday, the girl contacted police to let them know that she had been yelling to a friend in another vehicle... it was a joke between friends. Police confirmed the details and issued a statement saying thank you to everyone who helped resolve the case.

Provincial Election to Happen Sept 14th:
In case you were wondering, it's been less than two years since our last Provincial election. That one was a bit of a doozy where Brian Gallant got to be Premier for little while before Blaine Higgs. 
(Editorial: That roller coaster ride all happened without the added bonus of a pandemic.)
Premier Higgs says the Liberals made this happen when they walked out of meetings to negotiate a No-Election-During-Pandemic© deal. The Liberals see things differently.


Cathy Rogers won't be running in the next election... 

- Update on the drought of 2020: I saw someone running their sprinkler yesterday.
Please continue to conserve water so we all can prevent blue-green algae from impacting our drinking water. Just say NO to watering your lawn and washing your car. More.

 (Council says they'll end the experiment by the end of the week.)
Bruins, Colorado, Tampa Bay with wins, Canucks lost to the Blues.

- Who remembers phone numbers nowadays?
but if you're worried about remembering ten digit phone numbers in NB, you have more time to get adjusted. NB is still getting a second area code (428), but that change is postponed until 2022 because they re-crunched the numbers and figured we won't use up all the 506 phone numbers until then.
