Shell’s Turnaround Manager at the Sarnia Manufacturing Centre, Joe Wilson has been appointed to the role of Chairman of the Sarnia Construction Association’s Owner-Client Council.
It took a decade or so before the LCBO store that then CEO (and former Sarnia MPP Andy Brandt) opened on Exmouth Street near Lambton Mall Road.
Friday (April 13) was "Dig Safe Day" in the area and several volunteers from a number of local companies took time out of their schedules to spread the word about the need to call before putting shovel to soil.
Less than three years after its founding, a bio-tech company has announced plans to build on property once owned by one of Chemical Valley's legacy companies.
The annual Sarnia-Lambton Chamber of Commerce Community Leadership Breakfast continues to grab the attention of politicians and business leaders alike, judging from a crowded ballroom at the Lambton INN on Wednesday morning.
The organization sponsoring this Friday's "Safe Dig Day" may be something of a mouthful, but the message being brought by the Sarnia Geographic Council of the Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance is a relatively simple one: if you're a homeowner or contractor doing work involving excavation, do it right.
Lest anyone missed one of the burrs under the saddle of Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley, the city's long-standing political leader made sure a crowded house at the Community Leadership Breakfast got the point: OLG's upcoming closure of its Slots operation at the Hiawatha Horse Park is just plain wrong.
Thanks to a story that appears in the latest issue of Maclean's magazine, at least one Sarnia-Lambton manufacturer is getting national attention.

By DAVID LAVENDER The new Lambton Financial Credit Union at Exmouth and Capel is a welcome replacement for the Fat Moe’s Bar and Grill that previously occupied this site. The trademark Lambton Financial logo is now prominently located on a distinctive glass tower that tops an eclectic contemporary design worthy of this intersection, but diminished by the garish temporary sign on Exmouth. The blue colour, arched windows, classical columns, and standing seam metal roof continue the branding efforts of the credit union. This colour is a dependable choice for commercial institutions. Banks are one of those institutions that occupy symbol space in our minds. The design of this building reflects the transition from the symbolic “bank” of the past with its solid and secure classical facade. Columns are a significant element used to evoke that sense of security. In a brave new world where money is nothing more than a fluid electron flow transacted between mobile devices, we should wonder whether the classical columns are past their prime.
