Wild turkeys make a comeback

By Janet Baine

Cambridge - What bird living in the Grand River area has a beard, snood and caruncles? Wild turkeys of course. They were eradicated from this area, the province and many states by 1909 due to unregulated hunting and the loss of native forests that were cleared for agriculture. Now they are back in the Grand River watershed by the thousands. They are especially noticeable in winter, because they gather into large groups and move around together in their quest for food. At night they roost in trees.

Industry

Gross domestic product by industry

Statscan - Real gross domestic product rose 0.4% in November after growing by 0.2% in October. Oil and gas extraction led the way in November, followed by wholesale and retail trade, real estate and the finance and insurance sector. Manufacturing declined, largely as a result of temporary plant shutdowns for retooling in the motor vehicle assembly industry and shift reductions in the motor vehicle parts industry. Construction also decreased.

Where Is The Money?

by Jim Bain

Success in business is all about finding the money. In the present economy, the private sector is reeling, but governments, both federal and state, seem to have money to spend and the desire to do so. The problem is that being a contractor or vendor to the government is a tough club to join. If you jump through the right hoops, and if you qualify, there are plenty of opportunities, but dealing with the bureaucracy can be a mind blowing experience.
