Did you know…Black eyed peas, ham, and cab­bage are con­sid­ered good luck if you eat them on New Year’s Eve or Day be­cause it is be­lieved they will bring you money. Con­versely, lobster and chicken are con­sid­ered bad luck be­cause lob­sters can move back­ward and chick­ens can scratch in re­verse, so it is thought these foods could bring a re­ver­sal of for­tune. Speak­ing of luck, in Italy, peo­ple wear red un­der­wear on New Year’s Day to bring good luck all year long.

“And the best game you can name, is the good old hockey game!” – Stompin’ Tom Connors. The Stan­dard Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion is host­ing its first ever Novice Tour­na­ment on Jan­uary 12 and 13, with eleven teams at­tend­ing, and would like to in­vite all com­mu­nity mem­bers to come out and watch some great mi­nor hockey! The two Stan­dard teams start at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Good luck to all play­ers!

A mes­sage from the Vil­lage of Stan­dard…The fol­low­ing is a pri­or­ity list for snow re­moval and clear­ing; 1. Af­ter a snow storm event has ended and when it is safe to pro­ceed, pub­lic works will make at the very least a sin­gle lane for ac­cess and egress on ev­ery street within the Vil­lage. 2. When made aware, pub­lic works will en­sure that res­i­dents with med­i­cal is­sues will be made a pri­or­ity to en­sure snow is cleared in their drive­way and or street so there is ease of ac­cess. 3. Fire­fight­ers and first re­spon­ders for the Stan­dard Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment will be pro­vided ease of ac­cess from their homes to the fire hall for emer­gency pre­pared­ness. 4. Large drifts and hard­est hit ar­eas of Stan­dard will have snow blown out or re­moved next. 5. Side­walks will be blown or swept as time per­mits with the Broad­way and other highly used side­walks be­ing done first. Side­walk clear­ing with the Vil­lage trac­tor is con­sid­ered a cour­tesy and res­i­dents are re­spon­si­ble for clear­ing their own side­walks within 24 hours at the end of a snow­fall. 6. When all pri­or­i­ties above have been met, al­ley­ways will then be blown out or cleared as time per­mits.
