AYLMER – The Aylmer Spitfires were on the losing end of a pair of 2-1 scores in Provincial Junior C hockey this weekend. Friday they were edged 2-1 in Exeter and Saturday here they fell 2-1 to Dorchester. Friday, Exeter outshot Aylmer in every period in the win – James Collins was the lone Spits’ marksman. Saturday, Dorchester broke a 1-1 tie with a goal in the last five minutes of play – Dallas Loiselle had the only Aylmer marker. The Spitfires now have three wins and ten losses in the nine team league. Next game is Saturday hosting Lambeth.





(Contributed) – “Elgin St. Thomas Public Health has noted a rise in the number of pertussis (whooping cough) cases over the past week. The Health Unit would like you to make sure you are up-to-date with all your shots (vaccines) and to speak with your doctor right away if you have an unexplained cough that has lasted a long time. See your doctor if you have had a cough that lasts more than two weeks. Whooping cough may end with vomiting and/or a “whooping” sound. In many people, the symptoms get worse and last for weeks and even months. Whooping cough is very serious for babies and pregnant women in their last 3 months of pregnancy.
