It is always nice to hear a little good news.

An Oxford County OPP Officer stopped to help a senior resident who was shovelling his driveway yesterday afternoon, on Glendale Drive in Tillsonburg.

The officer was helping shovel with the resident when a group of teens passed by. One of the teens, a 14-year-old young man, came back and joined in to help.

The officer reported that, in no time at all, the driveway was cleared for the resident, who was very grateful for the help.

The officer gave the youth a ride home and ensured that his parents were made aware of his good deed.

Helping out in your community can go a long way.

Flu Season Kicking into High Gear

Experts are reporting there's a lot of flu season left in Canada, and one strain is particularly nasty.

Dr. Michelle Murti of Public Health Ontario, refers to the mix of two strains dominating this year's epidemic.

H-3-N-2 is a tough virus that tends to infect the elderly in greater numbers, with concurrent circulation of a B strain, which causes less severe illness.

Influenza B can also affect seniors and is the strain that most often infects children.

Murti says in a normal season, we'll see a peak of influenza A some time towards the end of December or through January, with a peak of influenza B arriving toward the end of February.

In its weekly FluWatch report, the Public Health Agency of Canada says there were 11-thousand-277 laboratory-confirmed cases of flu across the country as of December 30th.
