Blog Watching, Week ending January 4 2015

It was another quiet week  for the most part, as holidays and a lighter than usual news cycle combined for fewer items for readers to give notice towards.

However, there were still some items that resonated through the last seven days, with a New Year's Day shooting setting the pace for the week's review

As well, our accounts of Free Transit on New Year's Eve, the annual Polar Bear Swim, the return of the Rainmakers to the Basketball court after the holiday break and a string of Weather Notices from Environment Canada all made for a fair bit of interest over the last seven days.

Leading it all off this week, a shooting in Haysvale provided the focus for the RCMP on the first day of 2015
