The Tracker Sportswear Merritt Midget Rep Centennials are the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association Tier 3 champions for the second straight year after a 6-4 win over Winfield yesterday at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena.

Rising prices for beef producers could mean rising costs for the consumer.

The Canadian Cattlemen's Association is predicting a further up-tick for beef prices, which have already soared to record territory over the past month.

Cattlemen's General Manager Dennis Laycraft notes that right now beef producers are enjoying calf prices at the highest they've been since mad cow disease shut the door on meat exports a few years back.

As well, the strong Canadian dollar isn't hurting matters.

A combined Spring break and Easter holiday in 2012, as outlined by Superintendent Bob Peacock recently appears to be the direction taken by the board in School District 58.

Trustee Richie Gage says it appears that'll be the direction for next year only.

The decision means students will have two weeks together, starting March 26 and running until Tuesday, April 10, 2012.  Spring Break this year starts on March 21 for a week.

Easter Break starts with Good Friday on April 22, through to April 29.

Acting on a recommendation from the Environmental Awareness Committee, the City's glass recycling bin appears headed back to the main depot on Main Street.

City Councillor Nadia Clarke says it was moved to Hale Transfer for safety and noise reasons but a lot of the glass has now been ending up in the blue bags.

To get around the danger of people getting hurt Clarke says the original bins with only round holes for people to deposit their glass will be used, which Council hopes will help curtail the noise for residents in the Main Street area, as well as make it safer.
