Fresh brewed news for Thursday, March 19 2009:

In case you haven't noticed, it's almost spring!

For all you Longueuil-ers, here's some good news: the RTL will be adding 4,000 hours to its bus and collective taxi services starting April 6. Many new departures will be added for buses, and the taxi service will be available for users during rush hour in the morning, and also on the weekend.

And for those of you who take the train to go home on holidays, better and faster service is on the way for Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. How 'bout a nice upgrade to STM services now, Mr. John Baird?

UQAM teachers and students are on strike, that much we already know. But today, they have scheduled a march and a rally to urge Quebec's government to increase UQAM's funding for this year's budget. They are going to march from the UQAM campuses at Ste-Catherine and St-Denis, all the way to Jean Charest's offices on McGill College.

And now, the sad news. British actress Natasha Richardson, also known as Liam Neeson's wife, died yesterday from severe head injuries. She had a minor fall while skiing at Mont-Tremblant resort and was taken to Sacré-Coeur hospital in Montreal, then later transferred to a New York hospital.

OK, here are some directions:From I-10 east or websuotnd, exit State Hwy 6. Go north. You may turn east (right) on Patterson Drive, then north (left) on Bear Creek Drive, then east (right) on Golbow, then right on Koch. If the road is blocked or gates closed (or you pass Patterson), continue on 6 and go north to Clay, then turn right, take the entrance to the park on the right (not the golf course) which is Bear Creek Drive, then left on Golbow, right on Koch. You can also exit N. Eldridge, go north, then west (left) on War Memorial Drive. Then left on Sullins Way, right on Brandt, left on Golbow, left on Koch. From the northern areas, go south on Hwy 6, go east (left) on Clay Rd, right onto Bear Creek into the park PAST the golf course, left on Golbow, right on Koch. You may bring compasses to practice your land navigation. That'll keep the kids occupied! Treasure hunt, anyone??
