THINGS TO ON line
The Storm the Mountain Adventure Challenge on Saturday, Feb. 4, is both an endurance and an orienteering event. The challenge is being hosted by Pugwash Ground Search and Rescue and the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia. Participants will search for 30 to 35 control points in either a four- or eight-hour event. A veteran Amherst police officer is celebrating 40 years on the job. Staff Sgt. Scott White joined the Amherst Police Department in January 1977 and he has seen a lot of changes in that time, including the move into the department’s new quarters on Havelock Street – the first time it has moved into a building designed as a police facility.
