The provincial government announced a deal yesterday that will save the old Moncton High school. The 82 year old property will receive 4 million dollars from the province to renovate the 1300 seat auditorium while Heritage Developments Ltd. takes ownership of the remainder of the school for $1 million to convert it to office space. The developers expect to spend $8 to $9 million to shore up the building’s exterior, including the roof and masonry, with work completed by 2020.

The Magnetic Hill’s Zoo has a new resident. The zoo’s animal care foreman and curator, Jamie Carson told the Times and Transcript a baby zebra was born this past Monday. Shortly after the zebra was born, it joined its mother on public display in the zebra habitat. Zoo director Jill Marvin said staff have approached the newborn zebra this week, but have just been monitoring the foal to make sure things are going well.

The government says that you’re allowed to fish without a licence this weekend! That’s recreational fishing btw…you are not allowed to set lobster traps without a licence…nope you’ll get a big ol’ fine for that…anyway it’s called “Fish NB Days” and you’re allowed to go angling on inland waterways without a licence on Saturday and Sunday. A couple of the tips from the official government website:
– They suggest you check with your local fishing-tackle retailer or with an experienced angler to find a location where children are most likely to enjoy the experience.
– To make the most of a fishing outing, the department recommends that anglers take plenty of snacks and water or juices, insect repellent, sunscreen, hats and rain suits.
