Come on.Kassandra GulliConcord(As Dr. Johnny Fever said … you've got the healing prescription)SOUNDING THE ALARMI have been reading about the thoughtless people who complained about the loud Amber Alert announcements regarding little Riya Rajkumar. At least someone heard the message and reported the licence plate of the vehicle. Unfortunately, little Riya was dead at the time. We need these alarms to help us all. As a small child growing up in the U.K. during the war, sometimes we heard a very loud siren going alerting us that planes were coming over to bomb, mostly at nighttime. Take cover or get into a shelter. Let's just say that a tornado, or a hurricane, was forming quickly and fast approaching your area at night and no announcements were made. After the deaths and destruction, who would be the first to complain that no warnings were given out. So before you yell, think of what can happen if no warnings are given out. In today's world, things can happen fast and you have to be ready to move quickly in order to save yourself or others. Unfortunately, we don't have national service here whereby some people could learn some discipline, responsibility, backbone and thought for others instead of just themselves.David VoegeliGeorgetown(Ridiculous people would complain when a child's life is in danger.

Park players remember fallen MacEwan teammate - Sherwood Park News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Red Deer College this weekend, which has also been postponed. The Griffins will return to the ice Monday for practice in preparation for two games against Concordia University on Feb. 8 and 9."It doesn't feel real at the moment, I'm sure in the next coming days it'll settle in a bit more," Gotaas said. "It gives you time to reflect how much we miss him, how much we're going to miss him and what a great person he was."Nothing is ever going to be the same, but if we can move forward trying to carry on Nakehko's legacy, that's something we're trying to build around on and off the ice because he was such an impactful person in the community as well."Lamothe was a member of two championship teams with the Griffins, who are looking for their third Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference title this season."I was fortunate enough to play on Nakehko's last shift with him," Yaremchuk said. "We were down by two goals and they got an empty-netter, so we were going to set the tone for the next game and he said to me, ‘Yammer, let's go and have some fun, let's kick these guys' ass and let's go have some fun doing it.' I just think that really speaks to how he lived his whole life."I think my big memory that I have is spending that last game with him and he did what he loved and that was his last night and he was doing what he loved to do."

Word of Dupre's passing at a Concord nursing home came from a Cabarrus County veteran services officer. She asked whether Powles Staton, which specializes in services for veterans, could help.

Neither could a sister who was also in her 90s. Dupre grew up in Pennsylvania and joined the War Department as a clerk and typist when war broke out, according to a 2008 Observer article on Dupre. She later joined what would become the Women's Army Corps, and her battalion became the only all-black unit deployed to Europe in World War II.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days. Clark Davey, former publisher of the Montreal Gazette, displaying a mock-up of the paper's new Sunday edition in 1988. Bill Grimshaw / The Canadian Press When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
