Dispute suspect has case adjourned

Murray Pattingale, 53, faces charges of uttering threats, unsafe storage of a firearm and causing a disturbance; the Pleasant Bay man, whose case opened in court in January, was expected for election-and-plea in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court after the hearing was adjourned in February, March, April and May.

Pattingale didn't appear; he's expected to enter into a peace bond agreement- he's scheduled for a status update Dec. 19.

Cheticamp RCMP say officers were called to a threats complaint in Pleasant Bay in December.

They say they arrested one man at a home and seized a number of unsafely stored firearms; they arrested another man later that same day.

Wayne MacKinnon, 70 of Pleasant Bay has been charged with uttering threats; his lawyer pleaded not guilty to the charge on his behalf in January, and his trial was set for Sept. 5.

Both men were released on conditions shortly after their arrests.


Inverness Co. drug bust suspect pleads not guilty

A suspect arrested in relation to a drug bust in Inverness Co. has entered not guilty pleas.

Shea Slaunwhite, 26, pleaded not guilty to charges of trafficking and possession of hydromorphone for the purpose of trafficking.

He made his first appearance in the case in September; he elected a supreme court, judge and jury trial.

Slaunwhite is expected for a preliminary inquiry Feb. 20.


Installation of traffic lights behind schedule

The mayor of Antigonish says a new set of traffic lights at a busy intersection in the town are behind schedule.

Town councillors approved the money for the lights at West St. and Highland Dr. as part of their 2017-2018 budget.

The cost of the project is close to $120, 000; it was scheduled to be done by the end of last month.

After Monday night's regular town council meeting, Laurie Boucher, Mayor, said there's a hold-up with some of the parts.

"Some of the products come from the states (have) to go through duty- once it passes there, it has to go to the province and they have to be inspected and let go from there, back to us," she says. "That process is taking a little bit more time because some pieces were on back order."

Boucher said the lights should be up and running by the end of this month, possibly into next month.
