Blog Watching: Week ending December 25, 2016

Merry Christmas to our readers as you settle in for your Christmas Day lounging, perhaps taking a moment with us to catch up on the events of a hectic last week before Christmas.

With a few days to rest up from your busy schedule, we invite you to wander down our right hand column over the Christmas break, our links to a wide range of categories which can provide for a good look back at the events of 2016.

If you have some time, find a few topics of interest and settle in for a review and maybe re-discover some news that may have slipped by when it first was delivered.

As for our Christmas Day review, not surprisingly considering the season, items of note on the week included our look at the schedule of Civic closures and reduced hours as well as the travel schedule for the Digby Island Ferry, with both stories this week finding a large audience.

Our look at the interest generated by an eight part Podcast from the CBC into the 1989 murder of Alberta Williams also found a large audience this week.

While Sports also made for a theme of interest over the last seven days, with our preview of the upcoming New Beers Resolution Curling Challenge for January and our look back at some of the work of Prince Rupert's young athletes around the province making for high volume reads on the week as well.

However, the top story of the week is our look at the holiday schedules for a number of civic departments heading into the holiday period.
