Assault Victim's Sister Speaks Out After Brother's Death - PembinaValleyOnline.com

Thursday, November 17, 2016

The sister of a man who died as a result of injuries suffered in Winkler this weekend is speaking out in the aftermath of the senseless act of violence. Zack Straughan was severely beaten at Valley Bowling Lanes Saturday night before passing away on Monday at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. However, his sister Cassie Straughan says thanks to the CPR efforts of the first responder from Winkler Police, Zack may impact many lives as an organ donor. His heart, liver, both kidneys and pancreas will be eligible for donation. "I don't know who the police officer was at the scene, I would really like to meet him and shake his hand. Because of his quick thinking and CPR he did on my brother, (Zack's) heart is suitable to go to a person." Even though saddened at the sudden passing of her brother, Straughan was looking forward to having Zack walk her down the aisle, she says knowing the recipient of Zack's heart will be given a second chance fills her with joy. She notes becoming an organ donor is a personal choice, but urges other to consider the option.

Two Carnival Legends Lost - VenuesNow

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

They didn't want me in the business," she said. But she met Bingo, and the rest is history. In his youth, Bingo was in a hurry to get out of Brandon, Manitoba, where he said there were only three occupations – policeman, and he was too short to be one; crook, and he was too nice to try that; and carnie. He hitched a job on Royal American Shows working the sideshows and then Myerhoff Shows. And then he met Simba, the lion. "The lion was jealous of me," Jackie said. Simba the Lion loving on a young Bingo Hauser. From Simba, Bingo moved on to an alligator, a boa constrictor and a monkey. They all grew up in the Hauser household, some in the kitchen, some in the living room. Once the monkey escaped and hid in a farmer's truck to make his getaway. Hours later, Bingo had to bail the monkey out of jail. They travelled with the menagerie for years, but then the animals grew too big. The time came to switch from fur to iron. Bingo knew he had to "get rid of anything you have to feed all winter." Jackie didn't want Bingo to get into the carnival business, but he did. Like Tony, Bingo was gregarious and bigger than life. Jackie remembered that when he asked her to marry him, she thought, "You and me and how many others?" But he managed to propose and they bought a Merry-Go-Round and West Coast Amusements was born. There was a carousel horse from that Merry-Go-Round at Bingo's funeral Oct. 16 in Langley, B.C., spruced up and set up by his son Bob. West Coast Amusements now includes more than 100 rides and operates three units. The season begins in April and ends in September. The family has the route covered and is working on details of the 2016 season now. On RCS, Bil Lowry has taken over Tony's responsibilities. Life goes on, but the loss of two giants in the industry is felt by many hundreds of people, evidenced in the tributes paid. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

MacEwan and in his third year with the Griffins. He also played with the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (2013-2014), the Opaskwayak Cree Nation Blizzard of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (2013-2015) and the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (2015-2016).Lamothe was a graduate of the Vimy Ridge Academy and also played for the Edmonton South Side Athletic Club. The official cause of death has not been released."He was a real salt-of-the-earth guy," said Griffins forward and another Sherwood Park product Nolan Yaremchuk, 25. "He really thought about other people before he thought about himself. I think that Nakehko was so special in so many different ways. For one, he was so funny, he had a charismatic personality, and he was always wanting to come to the rink to get better. His drive for hockey was something I'd never seen before. He loved playing hockey." Grant MacEwan Griffins hockey player and Sherwood Park product Cam Gotaas speaks about the death of teammate Nakehko Lamothe. Greg Southam/Postmedia Network Part Dene and part Cree, Lamothe was a role model for Indigenous youth. He grew up on the Bigstone Cree Nation at Calling Lake and helped run youth hockey programs. Last February, Lamothe invited youth from his community to spend a day with him at MacEwan."He was an incredible teammate and he was very well liked in the dressing room," Griffins head coach Mike Ringrose, a former player for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, said. "He was infectious in terms of his attitude and his work ethic. He was easily the fittest player on our team. Anytime we did any type of fitness competition, he was the one that always came out on top and took care of his body and his diet. He was a leader for us in that regard. On the ice, he was extremely competitive, worked exceptionally hard and was hard to play against. The type of guy you were certainly happy to have on your team and you didn't want to see on the other side."According to teammates the six-foot-three, 210-pound forward was dedicated to fitness."We had a team party one time and us being university guys, some guys brought beer to the party and Nakehko brings 12 eggs," Gotaas said.
