No one has the winning ticket for the 50-million-dollar jackpot in last night's Lotto Max draw.

Twelve MaxMillions prizes of a-million dollars each were available in the draw, and one of those prizes was claimed by a ticketholder in Winnipeg.

The jackpot for next Friday's draw will remain at 50-million, but there'll be an estimated 25 MaxMillions prizes up for grabs.

A special ceremony was held at the 36 signal regiment detachment in Glace Bay on Friday to name it the Dr. Guglielmo Marconi Armoury.

"Dr. Marconi’s work in wireless communications forms the baseline for military command and control communications systems today, Lt.-Col. Dale Warner, Commanding Officer, 36 Signal Regiment said the armoury has a deep historical significance to Marconi.

"Naming the Glace Bay Armoury becomes a way of tying the armoury in with Glace Bay, Table Head and Dr. Marconi."

He said the contribution of Dr. Marconi to communication systems around the world is invaluable.

Water Woes

Two municipal workers, accompanied by four RCMP officers, have shut off a well supplying water to an apartment building, housing mostly seniors in Barrington.

The well was disconnected around 10 a.m. Friday as part of a six-year battle between the Municipality of Barrington and a local developer.

Some residents of the building, mostly 70- and 80-year-old women, had earlier surrounded the well, blocking any effort to shut off their water on June 30.

For now, residents still have some water being supplied from a reservoir tank.

Last week, the municipal council rejected a last ditch effort by complex owner Ken Anthony to solve the crisis.
