Carpet One Belleville - 285 Coleman St

Fatal collision on Hwy 49 north of Skyway Bridge


There was a fatal collision at the intersection of Hwy 49 and Bayshore Road near Deseronto this morning.

When Tyendinaga Police and fire crews along with Napanee OPP were called to the scene around 11 a.m. a Dodge pickup truck was fully engulfed in flames.

The driver of the Dodge pick-up truck was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle, a five tonne truck, was not injured.

An OPP Technical Traffic Collision Investigator was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.

The identification of the driver will be confirmed through a post mortem examination that will be scheduled.

A small portion of Highway 49 remains closed just north of Bayshore Road.

The Skyway Bridge is open.

Belleville Police looking for missing girl

Belleville Police are looking for 15-year old Belleville girl that they say went missing Tuesday.

Police say Samantha Foo was last seen at her home around 10:30 p.m. She’s described as being Asian, 5’10” in height with a thin build, long straight dark hair and carrying duffle bag or backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Belleville Police.

Take a walk down Memory Lane

There’s going to be a new spot to sit and enjoy the view of the Bay of Quinte in east end Belleville.

Belleville council has approved the building of the CNR Pensioners Gazebo on the Kiwanis East Bayshore Trail on Memory Lane.

Council has selected Tom Belch and Sons Contracting to build the gazebo at a total cost of $99,000.

CNR pensioners raised $90,000 of that total.

Which council to pick the new police station?

It’s not clear yet if it will be this version of Belleville city council, or the new council, that will decide on where to build a new police station.

Outgoing Mayor Neil Ellis says council might receive a staff report detailing the amount of clean up necessary at the former Trudeau Motors location.


It’s not known whether that report will be ready for this council or presented to the new council in January.

The Trudeau Motors location was chosen as the preferred location for a police station some time ago.

Time change means it’s time to fall back

Don’t forget we’re moving back to standard time this weekend.

Before you go to bed Saturday, turn your clocks back by one hour.

The good news is that you’ll get one more hour of sleep.

Quinn wins round one

Quinte West council has approved a request for a recount by council-hopeful Garry Quinn who finished three votes behind Rob MacIntosh on election night.

Quinn had 1,351 votes and MacIntosh 1,354 votes.

A glitch with the Sidney Ward tabulators also had Quinn asking council for a recount.

Moments into today’s council meeting, Councillors Jim Harrison and Paul Kyte made a motion in support, at a cost of $3,200 to taxpayers.

Dominion Voting Systems will be contacted to tally the votes within the next 15 days.

Quinn was happy with council’s decision.

OPP reopen 2nd Dug Hill Road after collision

Quinte West OPP have reopened 2nd Dug Hill Road at the Railway overpass following a collision involving a tractor trailer.

Officers closed the south entrance to Walmart and north at Telephone Road just before noon as there was debris across the roadway.

The vehicle has since been removed and the road is open.

There are no more details at this time.

Scary spirits are waiting to make you howl with fear at Hick’s Funeral Home on Centre Street in Picton tonight.

Police arrest man on stolen ATV in Stirling

Stirling Rawdon police officers nabbed an intoxicated man on a stolen all terrain vehicle early this morning.

Police responded to an alarm coming from Big 3 Auto on West Front Street in Stirling shortly before 4 this morning.

There had been a break in at the shop and an ATV with an attached trailer was stolen.

With the public’s help, police located a drunk man on an ATV on a nearby trail. He was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana.

Police say he had a wish list of other items sold at Big 3 Auto.

Picton drug bust

The OPP raided a house in Picton yesterday morning, and discovered marijuana, cash, and firearms.

The raid occurred at a residence on West Mary Street.

41 year old David Lloyd of Picton and 42 year old Judith Allen of Toronto face charges.

The pot and hash seized had an estimated street value of 65 hundred dollars.

The pair will appear in court November 26th.

Fall back, batteries and carbon monoxide

It is time to turn back the clocks this weekend and the Belleville fire department is reminding residents it is also time to check out the batteries in their fire and carbon monoxide alarms.

Fire prevention Officer Tim Vanhecke says people should remember you cannot smell CO-2 but it can do a great deal of harm.

To determine if your home requires a carbon monoxide alarm, you can visit the Ontario Fire Marshal’s website at, or contact your local fire department.

Hasty Ps unveiling Saturday

The Hastings Prince Edward Regiment will be honored by the local legal community tomorrow morning.

The Hasty Ps will be on hand to see a monument unveiled in their honour in front of the new courthouse in Belleville, at Bridge and Coleman streets.

The monument, paid for by donations, was the brainchild of three local judges, Mr. Justice Bob Graydon, Mr. Justice Rob Scott, and Mr. Justice George Inrig.

The monument will be unveiled at 11:00 a.m tomorrow at the courthouse and the public is invited to attend.

From one to two

The next warden of Hastings County will hold the post for a two-year term.

County council had decided last year that it would change the position from a one year term to two years.

Administrator Jim Pine told council yesterday that anyone wanting to take a run at the warden’s post will have to file nomination papers within the next three weeks.

The deadline is November 20th, with the inaugural meeting set for December 4th.

Hastings County and Loyalist College

More than 1,000 employees of Hastings County have now graduated from a municipal management course through Loyalist College, over the past 10 years.

Chuck O’Malley of Loyalist presented certificates to a number of graduates at a ceremony at the County building in Belleville yesterday.

O’Malley says the program, which teaches leadership and finances in municipal government, will expand into Bruce County next week.
