"You make a bicycle lane that goes four or five miles and then it stops on a hill to nothing, you're playing with people's lives."Phillips said once a cyclist heading towards Salisbury leaves the bike lane, they encounter guardrails and an 80 km/h speed limit.Henry Philips says he doesn't want to see anyone hurt when cycling on the Salisbury Road.

He later followed his dream to be a general manager and worked for Putsch 210 on the Plaza in Kansas City while working with the famous trio of Jud Putsch, Bruce McMullins and Robert Kenney. In 1970, he became the Food and Beverage director for Tan-Tar-A Resorts and worked with Pano & Paul, restaurateurs of Atlanta, Ga.

A New Brunswick woodworker has designed a “do-it-yourself” casket kit to alleviate funeral costs.Woodworker Jeremy Burrill of Fredericton says he is a no-nonsense kind of guy, which is likely why his business mantra sounds like it was taken straight from an old-fashioned country song. “Just bury me in a pine box,” said Burrill, who owns the Fiddlehead Casket Co.Story continues belowREAD MORE: Woman pulls casket for miles for mental health awarenessBurrill said he wanted to give people a simpler, cheaper and more environmentally friendly option for their end of life send offs. He started handcrafting old-fashioned pine box coffins from his workshop in Fredericton, kind of like the ones used in the old west.“They are fastened with wooden dowels so there are no screws and no metal or anything in it,” Burrill said.The caskets sell for roughly $700 and even the bed lining is made of wood shavings. So so every part of the coffin is biodegradable. Over time,...
Brothers in arms: Ron and Ryan Anderson both survived tours in Afghanistan — but not PTSD - CBC.caThursday, April 12, 2018
Maureen and Peter Anderson)Ron and Ryan Anderson were built for war.The brothers grew up in a military family, moving around the globe before settling near New Brunswick's Canadian Forces Base Gagetown. Their father, Peter, was a sergeant major.There was never any doubt that Ron and Ryan would follow in their father's footsteps. They grew up playing "army" and following their dad to work.Both enlisted as soon as they finished Grade 10. Their parents couldn't have been more proud."I figured it was a good life," Maureen said.Ron and Ryan quickly racked up tours in conflict zones: places like Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Eritrea and, finally, Afghanistan. Ryan Anderson, in the middle, is pictured during his tour to Afghanistan. Years later, he'd spend hours telling his mother stories about his time fighting in the war.(Maureen and Peter Anderson)They were well-trained, reliable soldiers and the medals piled up. During his first tour in Afghanistan, Ron, the eldest, received a commendation for treating an injured Afghan child in the middle of a hostile crowd.Ron didn't hesitate when he was asked to deploy to Afghanistan a second time, his fifth tour in a combat zone.It was what he was trained to do.A mother's intuitionMaureen didn't want Ron to go back. He wasn't the same after coming home from the country the first time. Didn't he have enough tours under his belt?"I really didn't want him to go," she said. "I just had a bad feeling."The Andersons — Ron, Ryan, Peter and Maureen — smile on Ryan's wedding day.

They included Sgt. Donnie Lucas, one of Ron's close friends."It was the first men to be killed in our unit in a very long time," said Blair Williams, who was also in Afghanistan at the time.After the blast, Ryan was dispatched to the site, a job that may have seen him picking up his friends' remains.Days later, Ryan travelled in the light armoured vehicle carrying Lucas's casket in the ramp ceremony, held before a soldier's body is sent home.Soldiers carry a casket during a ramp ceremony for six soldiers killed in a blast on Easter Sunday in 2007. Many of the victims were Ron and Ryan Anderson's friends.(CBC)The scenes from that ceremony stuck with Ryan, according to Williams."It touched his heart. Another friend that's not going to get to go home."A harrowing weekTwo months later, on June 13, 2007, Ron was in the Afghan desert when his heart started pounding. He was sweating heavily and his body was vibrating.Ron went to the medic, and the doctor knew exactly what was happening.
