With Labour Day delivering the inevitable farewell to summer, we at The Current are gearing up for a busy fall. As readers will have noticed, we have recently been operating on a reduced basis. This is largely because we have been enjoying an extended visit with our family in the UK. This has made up for enforced absences due to the pandemic when we missed the births of two new grandchildren as well as our regular visits with our children. Unfortunately this seems to have given some folks the impression that The Current is winding down. However, we would like to assure our readers and supporters that we have no present intention to do this and they will see evidence of this as we revert back to our usual online reporting in the very near future.

Also this fall we intend to resume the regular email newsletters which we temporarily suspended more than a year ago because we felt our e-news subscribers were already inundated with too much depressing Covid news. And more recently we have been required to divert our resources towards the heavy legal fees necessary when we were thrust into the Court of Appeal as a result of the unsuccessful appeal against us launched by Madawaska Valley Council and the Township, about which we have already reported.
We therefore look forward to continuing to bring you the local news that we believe you need to read — no matter whose feathers might be ruffled in the process.
Finally, we hope our readers and advertisers will join us in celebrating another milestone achieved during 2022 by The Current – early this summer we passed the one million mark for online page views.
