Ser­vice de Po­lice de Sher­brooke (SPS) is look­ing for a man who tried to de­fraud an el­derly woman. The Sher­brooke woman re­ceived a phone-call from a per­son who said they were her grand­son and that they were about to get ar­rested un­less they could pay a hefty fine. The same man showed up at the el­derly woman’s home, later that day, to go to the bank with her to take out the money. The male sus­pect was be­tween 25 and 35 years of age, roughly 1.70 me­ters tall, 65 to 72 kilo­grams, and wore a dark red leather coat with black sleeves and beige pants. He was driv­ing a grey, four door car, pos­si­bly an Amer­i­can model. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call the SPS at 819 821-5555.

Last Fri­day, at around 4:20 pm, an ac­ci­dent be­tween a scooter and a truck at the cor­ner of Cham­plain and Jean-Paul II, in Ma­gog, led to one per­son be­ing in­jured. The fif­teen year-old on the scooter was taken to the hospi­tal with mi­nor in­juries. On Satur­day, at 1:00 in the morn­ing, some­one called the sta­tion of the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) to re­port Seen here at last Thurs­day’s an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion at the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum were former coun­cil­lors and may­ors (l. to r.): Ge­orges


Thetown of Stanstead held a spe­cial event along with the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum, last Thurs­day evening, to cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of the fu­sion of the ‘Three Vil­lages’. About forty res­i­dents at­tended the event which was held in the mu­seum’s so­lar­ium where an ex­hibit of the Great Fire had been set up for the vis­i­tors. In­cluded that a trac­tor trailer was im­mo­bi­lized on route 112, near Austin. Of­fi­cers who ar­rived on the scene sus­pected the driver to be in­tox­i­cated on drugs and brought him in for fur­ther eval­u­a­tion. His li­cense was sus­pended for 24 hours.

Win­ter park­ing rules for the streets on the RPM’s ter­ri­tory come into ef­fect on Novem­ber 1st and will vary ac­cord­ing to the mu­nic­i­pal­ity. among the guests were sev­eral former may­ors and coun­cil­lors who had lots of mem­o­ries to share about the merger, in­clud­ing how hard they had to work to per­suade many of the cit­i­zens to go along with it. Ev­ery­one at­tend­ing seemed to be in agree­ment that the fu­sion has turned out to be a good thing for all.

“It was a great col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum and the town and I’d like to thank all the former may­ors and coun­cil­lors who came and spoke. It was re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated,” said or­ga­nizer Marise Trepanier.
