FERGUSON,, Virginia Louise Dawson - Roanoke Times

Thursday, September 14, 2017

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 and Mary Ed Williams, her friends of 50+ years, Byron and Nancy Yost and just about anybody who was lucky enough to come in contact with her. The family would also like to thank Dr. Souha Khawam for her many years of kind, exceptional care for Jenny Lou. An animal lover, Jenny Lou used to ride her horse, Silver all over Salem in her teen years. Later she and Warren had goats, chickens, a raccoon and the World's neatest Bassett Hounds, Tank and Tinker. If you would care to, I am sure a donation to Angels of Assisi, 415 Campbell Avenue, SW, Roanoke, Virginia 24016 would be appreciated by her. A private memorial in memory of one of God's special people will be held at a later date.

New haunted escape rooms test logic and courage - CBC.ca

Thursday, September 14, 2017

All rooms follow single storylineThe rooms are all connected to the story of the Carthien family, who found misfortune in the house. The goal of each room is not only to escape, but to solve a piece of the mystery to eventually find out what happened to that family.One room is open now with plans of eventually having four rooms, which will solve the Carthien family mystery. There are plans for a fifth room which will allow guests to remedy the haunting of the house. Mitch Bresciani and his family built the Carthien Family story to encompass the entire house. (CBC)"We're trying to build up the suspense and build up the tension and ratchet up the fear factor a little bit as we go along," said Bresciani.'Haunted Hunt' for HalloweenThe Halloween season will be a big one for the Mystery Mansion.Mitch Bresciani has run The Dead Zone, a haunted maze in Regina for the past two years. This year the maze will not open but the Mystery Mansion will take its place, becoming home to a "Haunted Hunt" which will have guests searching for clues to escape the haunted house."It will be a scavenger hunt where we will open up most of the house and have people going through with flashlights and having to solve and find things going through the house," said Bresciani.Mystery Mansion has one escape room open to the public. The cost of the experience is $25 per person.One room is open to the public to solve the death and disappearance of Joseph Carson. (CBC)Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Capital Voices: RCMP commissioner's unforgettable case: 'The murderer sent me a Christmas card' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Pritchard showed up with one of Myles’s direct dealers and put it all together in his head.“Abe Wall was the direct dealer, from Burns Lake, and Abe’s brother was Bill Wall. And Bill Wall had the misfortune of being social with Pritchard. They would hunt longhorn sheep together, and in fact, if Pritchard was good at anything other than killing people and ripping off drugs, it was hunting.“Bill and Dave were tight, and they went out to visit Abe. Pot came up in conversation and they went out to Myles’s farm to meet Myles, and Dave put it all together.“So one day in 1995, Myles’s brother, who lives on Vancouver Island, died. So Myles had to go to the funeral. Now Myles’s wife, Pirkko Skolos, who was loved by all the people in the community, stayed at home when Myles went off to his brother’s funeral. And when he comes back, his wife is gone. She’s just gone.“There’d been a snowstorm and he sees tracks leading out to the woods where their stash of pot is kept, and tracks coming back to the ATV, and that’s it. So he calls the police.“So Myles gives us the whole story EXCEPT for what was out there. He says ‘I deal pot,’ but he’s not giving up who his sub-dealers were.“I tried to impress upon him, ‘Somebody knew that this pot was here and how it arrived.’ So over the next couple of days he starts to give it up, because he gets the consent of all these people and because I’m persuasive in saying I’m not interested in the pot dealing. So I meet his grower, who had a distinctive way of packaging his dope and putting it in trunks with this meticulous wrapping and bags. There were two trunks at the Skolos farm. One was gone and one was empty, with all the wrapping all thrown around the stash site. But no body and no blood.“So the only path to figure out who did it was through his sub-dealers. And that’s how we get to know Abe Wall. And Abe talked about having been to the farm in the summer with his brother Bill and this crazy guy named Dave.“So I interviewed Dave, an exploratory interview. Meanwhile, my partner interviews this other woman, Kim McCarthy, who we find out is Dave’s girlfriend.“I’m interviewing Dave in what we call a non-custodial interview. I’m being very systematic, because he’s not quite a suspect, but he’s a person of interest. So we start having a little talk, and I realize ‘Oh, I’m into something big here with this guy,’ to the point where I shift gears and I go accusatory, thinking that somehow I’m going to persuade him to tell me about it because it’s quite clear to me that this is the guy. And at one point when I’m accusing him, he gets so mad he gets...

Beloved matriarch of the Thomson family - The Globe and Mail

Friday, June 2, 2017

All three of the Thomsons’ children were born in Toronto, David in 1957, Taylor in 1959 and Peter in 1965.Family life changed in the mid-1960s, after Mrs. Thomson’s father-in-law made a fortune in North Sea oil, was granted a hereditary peerage and acquired The Times of London. By then, he was ready to retire, or at least to slow down, and so his son, Ken, moved to London with his family to run the British operations.“I think it will be quite a challenge living on this side,” Mrs. Thomson told a Globe correspondent in London in October, 1966, while on a house-hunting trip for her family. “Social life in Canada, as you know, is very informal and I imagine it will be much different here,” she said. “Of course, we are looking forward to visiting Europe. I think it will be very exciting.”After Roy Thomson’s death from a stroke in 1976, Ken Thomson began shifting the focus of the Thomson empire to North America. Back in Toronto, Mrs. Thomson did not take an active role in running the media conglomerate, which her husband expanded and transformed, but she shared her husband’s love of dogs, supported his fascination with visual arts and collecting and was his stalwart companion.David Binet, CEO of Woodbridge, the Thomson family holding company, recalled how Mrs. Thomson sparkled at social events. “She always seemed to be in a Chanel suit, and looked stunning even into her 80s,” he said.When Mr. Thomson died suddenly of a heart attack in 2006, she handled the loss of her husband, after 50 years of marriage, with “grace and dignity,” according to her long-time friend Gwen Whittall.By then, Mrs. Thomson was already suffering memory lapses, Ms. Whittall said. Mrs. Thomson had “the most dazzling smile and was a warm, affectionate, supportive and loyal friend,” she added.Susan Doherty Hannaford met Mrs. Thomson in 2005 when both were members of the RCM’s board. The two women shared a love of music and art and worked together on fundraisers including a gala for the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth.Mrs. Thomson was no longer driving, so Ms. Doherty Hannaford was behind the wheel for theatrical excursions to the Stratford Festival and escapades to music halls and...

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
