Humboldt Broncos bus crash: Funeral service held for radio broadcaster, 'amazing man' Tyler Bieber - Saskatoon StarPhoenix

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Broncos and was traveling with the team to their game in Nipawin, was confirmed to be one of the victims of the of the crash. (Supplied)SASwpLyndon Friesen, president of Bolt FM’s parent company, Golden West Radio, travelled from Manitoba to attend Thursday’s service with other employees. Friesen called Bieber’s death “tragic” and said it had a huge impact on those who work there.“He was a critical piece to the station,” Friesen said in an interview.Maureen Johnson, who knows Bieber’s mother and has a child Bieber’s age, wore a jersey to the service. She said she attended the funeral to show support not only for Bieber’s family, but “to show strong support for the kids in the hospital.”The collision between the Broncos bus and a semi-trailer took place last Friday around 5 p.m. on Highway 35 about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale as the Broncos travelled to Nipawin from Humboldt in a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) semifinal series against the Nipawin Hawks. Of the 29 people on board, 16 died in the collision and 13 were injured. The driver of the semi-trailer was not injured.Bieber was vice-president of the Humboldt touch football league, involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters as a mentor and was set to start coaching at a football academy in Saskatoon three days a week. Bieber was also a fan of the NFL’s New England Patriots. When Patriots owner Robert Kraft learned that, he sent flowers on behalf of the team to Thursday’s service and also left a voicemail for Bieber’s mother expressing condolences, according to ESPN.“My son was one amazing man,” Bieber’s mother, Marilyn Hay, said last week. “He would get up at 5:30 every morning and go to work, but his day didn’t stop there. After, he would volunteer with the high school kids — teaching them basketball, football, he taught the girls flag football — he had a real passion for that.“Tyler was rarely at home between running from work to volunteer jobs,” she said. “He wasn’t in it for the money, he’d get paid extra for being an announcer, but he’d drop that to go be a volunteer coach instead.”In a post on Facebook, his brother Brandon said, “I don’t know what to do or say right now but I know one thing is you will always be true in my heart, RIP my sweet brother, I miss you and love you dearly.”In addition to several services across Western Canada scheduled for the coming days, three other funerals are set to take place in Humboldt.A celebration of life has been announced for Jacob Leicht, 19, on Friday at...

Grieving mother joins residents asking for improvements to highway west of Edmonton - Globalnews.ca

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Alberta Transportation is aware of citizen concerns related to certain sections of Highway 628. We are working on improvements in the area, including repaving between Golden Spike Road and Highway 779. We expect work on that project to begin in 2018. You can see this project on our three-year Provincial Construction Program.“As for the section between Edmonton and Golden Spike Road, we are aware that the road needs some work. Small segments of this section of Highway 628 have been treated in the past with a mixture of gravel and asphalt, but it became too difficult to maintain so gravel was applied to match the entire section of road. We are in the process of hiring a consultant for future design work and to identify the need for utility relocation and land acquisition. Completing that consulting work will allow the project to proceed directly to the construction phase as funding becomes available and is allocated.“As for future funding, there are a number of factors we consider in setting priorities for roadway construction including enhancing public safety, whether the road is a major trade corridor and to relieve congestion. We can’t provide a timeline for construction of the segment of Highway 628 between Edmonton and Golden Spike road at this time.”That doesn’t sit well with these moms. They say action is needed now.“We want them to save lives. We’re not asking them to spend money that’s not necessary,” Mowbray said.The RCMP did not return Global News calls for information on the cause of the fatal crashes.Kirsten isn’t sure if guardrails, a wider road or pavement would have saved her son, but...

FERGUSON,, Virginia Louise Dawson - Roanoke Times

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Potts Creek and summer vacations with their dear friends Byron and Nancy Yost and their twin girls at Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. As they entered into the golden years, they were able to travel extensively. They crossed Canada in their private railroad compartment enjoying the beautiful Rockies and Victoria, BC. They toured Nova Scotia and Cape Breton with the Yosts (again). They spent a week in a 200-year-old stone cottage with a thatched roof in Normandy. They enjoyed a week in Versailles. Scotland and Ireland were visited. As much as they enjoyed international travel, they especially enjoyed visiting various areas of their home country. They left their hearts in San Francisco, were awed by the Grand Canyon, traveled the Mississippi by paddle wheeled steam boat, explored Cajun country, ate lobster in Maine, and fell in love with Texas and it's Long Horn Cattle, barbeque and friendly folks (Boy Howdy). Jenny Lou graduated from Cornet School of Business and became an Executive Secretary to Don Rowe, Sr. and Don Rowe, Jr. CEOs of Rowe Furniture Manufacturers. She moved to the Norfolk and Western Railway Company where she was personal secretary to David A. Cox, Director of Real Estate, and Industrial Development. After the N & W merger with Southern Railroad, Jenny Lou returned to school at National Business College where she earned an Associate Degree in Court Reporting and was a self-employed Court Reporter. She was top-notch stenographer with a mastery of short hand. She could make a typewriter smoke and was a whiz with the Court Reporter shorthand machine. She was a perfectionist and master of grammar. She had the most beautiful handwriting ever. People looked forward to receiving her beautifully addressed Christmas cards. Jenny Lou loved Budweiser and Hank Williams taken together. After deciding she had enjoyed enough beer for a lifetime, she discovered Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Fortune, Linda and Robin Williams and The Irish Tenors. A voracious reader, a trait learned from her mother who was the Town of Salem Librarian, she took her time reading and rereading passages in a book savoring every word. Left heartbroken by her passing are her husband, Warren; children, Scottie (Bill), and Jeb (Rori) and Sister Betsy who she loved so very much. She is also survived by her granddaughter, Katie and great granddaughters, Scarlett and Kennedy. Other survivors are her sister, Becky, and "favorite cousins" Mary Page Stinnett and John Kyle Shewey, along with a number of other relatives. Left to share in the loss are her dear lifelong, faithful friends, Mary Louise Scarborough...

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly!

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...
