Emo marks centennial in style

While Canada was enjoying its 132nd anniversary last Thursday, Emo likewise was having a fantastic time kicking off its three-day centennial celebrations.

People came in from all parts of Ontario, and as far away as New Mexico, Arizona, Alberta, Quebec, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota to take in the festivities.

Just your average taxidermist

Tony Richards.

Nothing unusual about the name. Average, really.

And in fact, Richards is an average guy, living in an average house in Barwick. He will be married in two weeks but at least a portion of the wedding will be paid for by his anything-but-average trade.

Richards is a taxidermist—an animal mortician so to speak.

Our Lady of the Church opens

They’re prayers have been answered!

When members of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Morson broke ground for a new church last summer, they did not have all the money needed to complete the project.

Fortunately, the “pay as they went” motto worked itself out and the official blessing and dedication of the completed church was held Sunday.
