Mirror Morning kicks off Sept. 29

Good morning Campbell River — it’s Friday! Yay!

It’s looking like a mixed bag for the weather today – sun, clouds chance of showers. Not so bad.

Cloudy conditions are expected for tomorrow with the weekend rounding out into a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday.

It’s been a busy week in the news and yesterday was no different.

Police advised the public of a suspicious incident involving an adult male approaching a young child in the 800 block of Merecroft Road on Sept. 13 and again Sept. 26.

And wow! Did you see those northern lights Wednesday night? You did? I didn’t! Man I missed them but there’s a great picture of them on the cover of today’s paper and a gallery of them from across b.c. On our website.

And hey, you have to see the picture on the cover of today’s paper. It’s possibly the most charming photo you’ve ever seen.
