Jennifer Wells: ‘Devastating’ Pine River Cheese closure leads to Cheesemageddon in Bruce County
It’s the talk of the town. When word spread through Ripley, and north up Highway 21 to Kincardine, and riffled across the breadth of Bruce County that the Pine River Cheese and Butter Co-Operative had made the hard decision to close after 134 years in business, well, you can imagine the shock. Cottagers and townsfolk stampeded for the store and on Wednesday of this week it was like…What was it like? Here’s Ulrike Prehn, the co-op’s chief executive: “It’s Cheesemageddon in our store.” Wednesday is Super Squeaky Cheese Curd Day, so the shop is commonly caught up in a midweek bustle.
FORT ERIE, Ont. — Two people have died after an attempted murder on the Niagara River that local police say also sent a child to hospital on Friday evening.
