Bedford is the new home for some funky looking lobster.
The Fishermen’s Market lobster pound on the Bedford Highway recently took in five lobsters that are now being called the “rainbow lobsters”.
The five crustaceans are unique because of their colour. Two of them are orange, one is blue, one is a very bright green and another a blue-green mix.
The market says as long as the lobster keep their colour, they’ll be kept at the pound for display purposes.
Lobster often change colour when they molt and it is likely the rainbow lobster will go back to their normal shade. If that happens, they’ll be treated like any other lobster at the pound. That means the lobsters will move from the display tank to the dinner table.
It may be time for the provincial government to ban glass glasses and bottles in bars, says a provincial court judge.
Judge Gregory Lenehan made the comment in court Tuesday while handing Marissa Dawn Nauss, 26, a conditional sentence for hitting a young woman last February with a liquor-filled glass during a night of partying at the Tops’l Tavern.
“I’m beginning to think that provincial authorities should start looking at drinking establishments and prohibiting glass objects from being in there,” Lenehan said.
“Far too often the courts are dealing with a situation where somebody has grabbed either the glass that’s in their hand or a beer bottle and either smashed it over somebody’s head or into somebody’s face.
“If we had plastic bottles and plastic drinking glasses in the taverns, we wouldn’t have people suffering facial injuries.”
A Grade 12 student in Nova Scotia has been suspended for wearing a T-shirt publicizing his religious beliefs.
The South Shore Regional School Board suspended William Swinimer from Forest Heights Community School in Chester Basin for five days for wearing a shirt emblazoned with the words, “Life is wasted without Jesus.”
School board Supt. Nancy Pynch-Worthylake said the wording on the shirt is problematic because it is directed at the beliefs of others.
“If I have an expression that says ‘My life is enhanced with Jesus,’ then there’s no issue with that, everybody is able to quickly understand that that’s my opinion about my own belief,” she said.
“If the shirt were to say ‘Without Jesus, your life is a complete waste,’ then that’s clear that it is an opinion aimed at somebody else’s belief.”
