Advertiser (Grand Falls) - - Editorial -

Our town has long been known as the hub of Cen­tral. Hav­ing been born and raised in this won­der­ful town, I can vouch for the fact that there is no place like this one. I have worked in all ar­eas of Cen­tral NL as a Wildlife & Fish­eries Of­fi­cer, and am cur­rently em­ployed as a Con­ser­va­tion Of­fi­cer with the Dept. of For­est Re­sources. My wife of 32 years, Jackie (Sharpe), our two sons, Mark (Sarah) and Chris, and our beau­ti­ful grand­daugh­ter No­rah, are all proud to call this town our home. Jackie and I also op­er­ate the Clas­sic The­ater and in the past six years, have taken this busi­ness from barely be­ing on the radar, to be­ing one of the high­est gross­ing in­de­pen­dently op­er­ated the­aters in At­lantic Canada, and have been hon­ored and hum­bled to re­ceive small busi­ness and busi­ness of the year awards for the past two years. I have also been a past mem­ber of the Cen­tral NL Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties board for ap­prox­i­mately 5 years, past Pres­i­dent of the Ex­ploits Spe­cial Olympics and I am a li­censed Guide. I have a keen ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all things na­ture re­lated and try to play an ac­tive role in its preser­va­tion for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. It would be an honor and a priv­i­lege to serve on our Town’s coun­cil and give back a lit­tle of what this won­der­ful place has given my­self and my fam­ily.
