LPN pleads not guilty to stealing drugs
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.
This old locomotive could get an exterior upgrade, depending on the outcome of a recent Town of Carbonear tender.
