Cochrane history – seniors building and where’s the beef

In this week’s Cochrane history segment we head back to December 19th 1973 edition of the Northland Post where the contract was awarded to build the 37 unit senior citizen building.

The announcement was made by then local Member of Parliament Rene Brunelle. He said that the contract was awarded to Terra Properties Limited at a cost of just over $654,000.

The building was to be built on the corner of 11th avenue and 8th street and it featured a two-storey structure, upper floor balconies, a common room and an outside recreation area.

Our second look at Cochrane History heads back to the December 19, 1973 edition of the Northland Post and it poses the question….Where’s the beef? In this case, on a roadway.

Richard Buckles was fined $5 and costs amounting to $7 for permitting an animal on the highway that was struck by a vehicle. Mr. Malette testified in court that on October 7 he was coming over the hill in Glackmeyer Township when he struck a bull calf that was on the road. Damage to his vehicle was $1,000.

Mr Buckles told the judge that the fence was fine and can’t understand how the cow got out.

The Judge didn’t think it was an adequate excuse feeling that if the fence was maintained property the cow wouldn’t have gotten out.
