Comments: Grew up in Overton. Although I have not lived there since 1970, it's still home.
 Anyone in Overton knows how important the Lobster fishery is to that community, and has been as long as anyone can remember. But it was not always that way. According to an old news paper(Circa 1940), the pioneer Lobster fishermen at Yarmouth Bar were Frank Lent, Charlie Fevens, Edgar Foote and my grandfather, Frank Jeffery(sr). This must have been in the late 1800's. Before that time most Overton residents were farmers, and in the early days of the Lobster fishery, many fishermen also farmed. When I was a youngster in the 40's and 50's, there were at least five major farms and three or four part time farms in Overton. Now there is only one, Churchill Brothers (my cousins).

Comments: Greetings.  I just learned that Yarmouth is to become the location of yet another Walmart.  Heaven help ya! 

We in Vermont fought unsuccessfully to keep out this mammoth chain of shops of overpriced goods (except for their cleverly placed lower-cost specials).  There is NOTHING redeeming about Walmart. 

Some say that it will bring more tourists.  Why?  Tourists can shop at any number of Walmarts all over N. America.  Few will come to Yarmouth for the shopping. 

Yarmouth would do far better support local, unique shops.  Walmart will bring in lots of underpaid jobs, will do nothing to expand the tax base, and will take lots of dollars out of town. 

Do your homework: investigate those communities that have succumbed to Walmart.  Learn what they have gone through as a result.  Resist!!!

Comments: I would just like to say that WalMart would be very good for the town of Yarmouth.  Not that it would bring any tourists, nothing seems to bring them anymore, but for the people who live in this town.  The tourist trade is dying off slowly and Yarmouth is too stubborn to admit it.  They still see themselves as a happening tourist town and nothing could be further from the truth.  Our young people have to leave in order to have any kind of life other than hanging around shop doors and going on welfare.  Come on in WalMart and bring your friends.  Give the competition and kick in the butt and shake this town up a little.  It certainly needs it.

Comments:     The Kirkland & District Hospital Scandal...
The Arlene Berry Death Coverup!

There's a trend in the UK towards prosecuting doctors for manslaughter. Some are even ending up in jail. So I think that the message Iím giving you is that if Canadian doctors and nurses do something really serious or show a blatant disregard for a patientís welfare, then such person(s) can and should be threatened, charged and prosecuted with criminal charges.

Comments: Hello to all my friends and relatives in Pembroke. I had the great fortune of growing up between Pembroke and Overton. I went to Overton school, but my father Frank fished out of Pembroke. Wayne Cushing and I started working in Lloyd Bain's Kipper making business when we were 10 years old, and most summers after that until we were old enough to do other things. Wayne, Roger Bain and I spent endless hours just having fun around the Dyke. 
I have never been sure weather to think of myself as being from Pembroke or Overton. I had more people that I was related to in Pembroke than in Overton, and I believe I could say that my best friends were from Pembroke (perhaps because of the family connections -- blood runs thicker than water etc). 
The photo of Victor Cushing's house actually prompted me to inter the Pembroke Guestbook. Out of the blue the other day I got a call from a Bernice and Nels Allen from Thunder Bay, in North Western Ontario. She was looking for family history stuff, and sent me a copy of the photo on the Pembroke Website of Victor's house. C.P. Allen would have been one of my relatives. Isreal Allen was my great Grandfather.
Anyway, I visit the Pembroke page quite often. I know, or knew most of the people in the school photos. Many are my relatives.
                  Cheers,
                            Jim Jeffery
