Wallaceburg’s own Shaun Suisham had a great week this week, especially off the field!

Financial details of his brand new four-year extension were not disclosed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the extension will keep Suisham in the black and yellow until at least the 2018 season.

Congrats, Shaun!

We held a contest recently before the 139th annual Dresden Exhibition. Jana Weese-Grubb from Dresden was the WOW winner of four bracelets for the fair that weekend.

Here is a photo of the four lucky kids who got to use them!

A funnel cloud was spotted in Chatham-Kent last week!

This photo was snapped by a member of the Chatham-Kent Police Service.

Did anyone else snap any? Feel free to text any storm photos to us at 519-365-1079.

Residents in the rural community in St. Clair Township had an “unwelcome” visitor last week.

Police say the man came from Sarnia, in a stolen pick-up truck, crashed the truck into a field, fled into a bush and even decided to break into Corey Kinny’s house looking for a “drink of water.”

Police are still searching for the suspect.

This story created some chatter as well:

George on Facebook said: “Great story!! Glad you are the best and first to post this!!”

DV on Facebook said: “On Sunday, Sarnia & Lambton police notified us by phone that there was a possible tornado in this area. They should be doing the same & advising residents that there is a suspect on the loose hiding in area bushes. This would assist the police with residents keeping a watchful eye to notify them & at the same time having residents lock up their vehicles to avoid another crime from happening.”

DV also said on Facebook: “Has a name been given out yet? Maybe that would help in the search.”


This poll is also posted on the homepage of the Sydenham Current!
