Correction: As briefed last week in the What's in the Weeklies, the Minnedosa Tribune has printed a correction on the story involving Newdale business owners Dale and Melissa Smith. The story had said the Smiths intended to close their hotel and grocery store; the Tribune has since printed a clarification that the store is for sale but there is no intention to close it at this time. Apologies for any inconveniences caused. Litter spree Some environmentally unsafe littering in the RM of Dauphin have that area concerned about what's happening. The Dauphin Herald reports the RM and RCMP are investigating a number of recent dumpings of full kerosene containers within the vicinity of the Dauphin landfill site. On two separate occasions the Dauphin fire Department was called out to grab as many as 20 containers that were along the side of the road, some which had already been run over by passerbys. In one instance, it was confirmed there was soil contamination but the contaminant did not reach a water source. In the first instance someone dumped 120 litres of what was marked as kerosene while the second incident involved 280 litres in 55 containers being thrown out on a different road. So far the dumping has cost the municipality about $350 with additional costs expected. Dragon's Den One of Roblin's businesspeople tried their luck on the popular CBC show 'Dragon's Den'. The Roblin Review tells its readers a marketing rep for Roblin-area honey producers Tim and Isabel Wendell made his way onto the show to try to get their product some national attention. The rep said the show was quite nerve-wracking, but it was a great experience and he received a positive reaction from the “Dragons”. Apparently the marketing rep was asking for an investment of $250,000 for a 25 per cent share in the company, and while he can't say what the end result was, he said there was a deal made by the end of the show. To date, it is unknown when or if the honey-pitch will be aired on CBC, but groups that make a deal with the Dragons do have a better chance of making it onto the TV program. Grey Cup Minnedosa was one of six stops in Manitoba for the Grey Cup's 100th anniversary train ride and The Minnedosa Tribune has offered lots of coverage on that occasion. Two stories – a report on the Grey Cup event as well as a feature on local Don Farr who had the Grey Cup visit his home – grace the paper's front page. At the open event, about 1,400 people headed to Minnedosa's CP railyard to see the Grey Cup. Earlier in the day, at 9:15 a.m., Farr was surprised when the Grey Cup took a special trip to his home in part as a recognition for his community work and personal character. Farr's wife was told about the occasion earlier in the week and told reporters she could barely keep the secret from her husband, who also received a personalized Blue Bombers jersey. Ball diamond Now that the community has its new ice rink, Virden is getting ready for another upgrade to its recreational offerings. The Virden Empire-Advance writes the Town and Virden Minor Ball have waited patiently for the rink to be constructed before it began work on what it calls a 'new big ball diamond' that will be built on the southeast side of Tundra Oil and Gas Place, the name of the rink. Construction crews have already leveled the foundation for the new diamond, while the estimated cost of the project is $60,000. The minor ball organization hopes to have the field up and ready for use by the summer of 2013.
