Ches,” as he preferred, was the eldest of 12 children, born in Carbonear. He was a banker who became a businessman, then a businessman who started and failed … and started again. He continually sought business opportunities and, through some key successes over a long-but-lucrative road, became the famous name who stood at the head of more than 3,000 workers: Ches Penney, founder and chairman of the Penney Group of Companies.“He passed away at home. And we had very much a private time with him and he was well surrounded by those who love him,” said his daughter, Gail Penney, also Penney Group president, speaking with The Telegram Friday.She said her father suffered a head injury in a fall about 17 months ago, and the brain injury he suffered factored in his death.“All of the family are brokenhearted.

Deer Lake council follows through on appealed decision and formally rejects crematorium application - The Western StarWednesday, March 27, 2019
The opponents protested outside the town hall during several subsequent council meetings.
The decision of council was appealed by residents Kayla Critch and Stephen Brent. In February, the West Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board conducted a hearing of the appeal and eventually decided to reverse council's decision.
That set the stage for council to revisit the application, which finally made its way to the council agenda this week.
The vote to reject the application was unanimous. Coun. Dave Parsons, who was absent from the public meeting, would not have been permitted to vote if he had been there due to his conflict of interest.
Coun. Myra Spence, whose husband's company could have been considered for work on the crematorium project, was deemed to not be in a conflict of interest and was allowed to vote Monday.
The appeal board had based its decision on the fact a crematorium is not listed as a permitted or a discretionary use within the Town Centre zone in the town's municipal plan.
Mayor Dean Ball said there are likely several undertakings within Town Centre that the municipality has actually approved in the past, but which are not specifically mentioned in the town's plan.
He gave the example of the cannabis outlet that recently opened in the area. It was not listed as a specific discretionary use when it was approved since the sale of cannabis has only recently become legal.
"This is the first time this has happened to us that I'm aware of," said Ball. "There are lots of things not listed as itemized as discretionary use that we've done in the past.
"I guess with this being a bigger issue with a higher profile and closer to people's hearts, the appeal board decided the decision should be reversed."
Ball said the original decision was based on information provided by staff and this discretionary use issue was not foreseen. He said Parsons could always apply again, but the mayor doesn't believe that will happen.
Parsons could not be reached for comment as of deadline Tuesday to see if he still plans to pursue the crematorium. He has said in the past that, despite the rising demand for a crematorium service in the Deer Lake area, it would not be feasible for his business to build one somewhere other than at the funeral home's location on Main Street.
A new municipal plan the town is awaiting approval by the provincial government does specifica...
