10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

The Re­former told the heart­warm­ing tale of Ruther­glen’s youngest fundraiser - a sev­en­month-old baby, whose par­ents had de­cided to give money to Can­cer Re­search in­stead of ask­ing for gifts for the young­ster.

A frail Blair­beth woman told how South La­nark­shire Coun­cil had twice given her dream home away to some­one, hav­ing got­ten her hopes up in the first place.

Con­cerned lo­cals claimed that South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s blue bin re­cy­cling scheme was set to ad­versely af­fect health in the area.

A to­tal of 25 jobs were to go at an in­de­pen­dent floor­ing seller that sud­denly closed af­ter go­ing into debt.

A Ruther­glen man who suf­fered from whiplash com­plained that the coun­cil had re­fused to main­tain his gar­den.
