LPN pleads not guilty to steal­ing drugs

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The Town of Car­bon­ear is go­ing to take a look at what it will cost to re­store the old train near the com­mu­nity cen­tre.

A re­quest for pro­pos­als (RFP) has been is­sued with a dead­line of Oct. 26 in place to sub­mit them. Coun. Ed Goff spoke out in favour of get­ting Lo­co­mo­tive 803 fixed up ear­lier this year dur­ing a coun­cil meet­ing. He also men­tioned a quote the town ob­tained a few years ago to do that work came in quite high.

The town is look­ing to have the train sand­blasted. Its ex­te­rior would be re­paired and patched where needed, and the RFP also men­tions a new paint job.

The lo­co­mo­tive, a sec­tion of a 1956 Ter­raTrans­port train, was last painted over a decade ago. Its present lo­ca­tion is also a short dis­tance from the Rail­way Sta­tion Mu­seum.

A li­censed prac­ti­cal nurse ac­cused of steal­ing pre­scrip­tion drugs and fal­si­fy­ing doc­u­ments at Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hospi­tal is plead­ing not guilty.

Char­maine Hud­son was present in Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court last Wed­nes­day when her lawyer, Jerome Kennedy, en­tered the not guilty pleas. Hud­son is charged with theft un­der $5,000 and fal­si­fy­ing doc­u­ments.

The Vic­to­ria res­i­dent was ar­rested in Fe­bru­ary of this year, sev­eral months af­ter East­ern Health first con­tacted po­lice. Hospi­tal staff at that time iden­ti­fied sev­eral in­stances where drugs were found to be miss­ing at the hospi­tal.

The two-day trial will take place April 7-8 at Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court.
