Snowmobile rally season is coming up - The Battlefords News-Optimist

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Brendan Hodge and daughter Mary in Houston. She drove to Saskatoon, flew to Calgary, Vancouver and then Prince George where they picked her up on their way home from a ringette tournament in Quesnel. The funeral for Eugenie Swayze of Saskatoon, mother of Pearl Hawkins of Meota, was held the day of the blizzard, Jan. 11, so several folks from Meota were on the road that day. Driving conditions were terrible. Also out in the blizzard was the Scorgie family who were picking up their daughter at the airport, as she returned from Australia. The 17-year-old girl that died in the accident that day west of Shellbrook, was a niece of Judy Slavinski of Saskatoon, formerly of Chitek Lake. Judy and her daughters attended her funeral in Prince Albert. Gladys Lehman is still in hospital. Bernice Beatch has transferred to River Heights Lodge from Harwood Manor. We’re glad to learn of roadwork to be done in the village this summer. Birch Street by the golf course is to be rebuilt and resurfaced and First Street West and Second Avenue West are to receive sand sealing. Five tables of canasta were played at the Do Drop In on Friday, Jan. 14. Top score was by Cora Christiansen and Gail Hilderman. Second high were Barbara Soloninko and Marion Ottas and third were Charles Walker and Lorna Pearson. All enjoyed the social period at the end of the evening over coffee and goodies. My neighbours, Lefa Sproxton and Vernon Burghardt, are wintering in Osoyoos, B.C. and are finding the winter there colder than usual. They are staying between the two lakes so if the wind blows either direction, it blows cold off the lake. On Dec. 31 they accompanied a local group who were doing their annual bird count and were surprised to see bluebirds, cedar waxwings, goldfinches and even a robin. The tour guide was a young, female biologist who was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. On a hike up the mountain they saw a coyote and a deer. Lefa is keeping active, as we know she likes to be.  The monthly meeting of the seniors was held Jan. 13 with president Eric Callbeck in the chair. A new snow shovel has been purchased as well as six new chairs and a couple tables are on order. The library report for January was read, describing a new program of activities “Winter Games” running until Feb. 28. If your child is interested, call Debbie at the library for details. The Christmas decorations were taken down and packed away and it was agreed that clea...

DAWSON - Alexandra (Sandra) - Yorkton This Week

Friday, October 28, 2016

George! Sandra's first teaching job was in Surrey, BC. She and George then moved to Northern B.C., and various places in Ontario before moving back to BC around 1974, and settled in Quesnel until 1984. Sandra resumed her schooling in 1985 and obtained her Master's Degree in Educational Psychology specializing in special needs children. Sandra was a dedicated teacher, and instilled a love of learning in everyone she met. She and George bought an acreage in Ebenezer, SK in 1988, where they spent their summers, and later lived permanently, sometimes spending winters in New Westminster, BC. She stayed busy with church activities, reading, gardening, entertaining her friends, and volunteering with Soup Haven. She cherished the spring she went on a mission to Mexico with her friends from Prairie Harvest Church. Sandra never really retired. Even after her formal teaching days ended, she taught ESL and tutored many children, including her grandchildren. After George died, she spent time in Halifax and Yorkton, and spent her final year living close to her daughter Suzanne in Ottawa. Her last summer was spent with her daughters and all of her grandchildren. She always enjoyed good mental and physical health and was very independent, and her passing was sudden and peaceful. She will be missed by so many, and leaves a legacy of strength, kindness, generosity and love. A Visitation for Family and Friends was held on Thursday, September 22, 2016 from the Chapel of Christie's Funeral Home in Yorkton, SK.

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...

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! He wa...
