Re : My heart is bro­ken, says fa­ther of Re­serve Mines shoot­ing vic­tim — June 30

I am so happy that ( fam­ily mem­bers) had the chance to let ev­ery­one know what their son, nephew and stu­dent re­ally was. This is the first thing that I have read in the media that has ac­tu­ally made me feel good about be­ing a Cape Bre­toner. The heartache may take lots of time to ease up if at all but I hope they can find com­fort in the mem­o­ries of Bran­don.

Wow, I love that photo of the 1935 Ford Tu­dor! Such style, el­e­gance & grace!

Re: Pro­posed Mother Canada mon­u­ment pro­vokes war of words over statue — June 30

The peo­ple of Igo­nish re­al­ize the po­ten­tial for this great mon­u­ment. They re­al­ize it will bring some eco­nomic ben­e­fit to their area and they also re­al­ize this is a badly un­der­uti­lized park. I am sure the peo­ple of Cheticamp at the other end of the park with the closed Tim’s re­al­ize the same thing.

Re: Re­union brings to­gether peo­ple who at­tended ele­men­tary school in ship­yard area — June 29

I re­mem­ber Ar­gyle School well. It is where I went to shop classes while at­tend­ing Wood­ill Jr. High. I still have two pieces I made. A two-shelf ma­hogany cof­fee ta­ble and a small wooden pine bed­room ta­ble.

I re­mem­ber the ‘ boys side’ and the’ girls side’ of the school, the school ‘mon­i­tors’ with the white belts, dodge ball in the front yard and base­ball in the back lot fac­ing School Street. The good old days for sure!

Re: Time for a Canada Day pledge — June 29

Our history is very badly tar­nished by the treat­ment of First Na­tions. Dr. Jim Guy, thanks for this (col­umn).

Re: Ben­e­fits sys­tem flawed, says reader — June 28

Seems to me it’s not up to the Depart­ment of Com­mu­nity Ser­vices “to help peo­ple get ahead.” That re­spon­si­bil­ity lies on the in­di­vid­ual. Of course that’s just my opin­ion. I could be wrong.

Re: Glace Bay man en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to at­tend rally to help save day­care, Mon­day — June 30

The busi­ness just isn’t there! Makes sense to close it down. If you only have half the amount of kids needed to keep it open the so­lu­tion is a sim­ple one. Dou­ble the fees!!!

—The Great Mr. Know it all

Best day care ever! My daugh­ter went there for sev­eral years and loved it. Had to take her back for oc­ca­sional vis­its when she started school. Ad­min­is­tra­tor and staff of the high­est cal­i­bre. Treated chil­dren as if they were their own. So good there should be a long wait­ing list! Al­ways!

Re: Sum­mer con­certs back on at Went­worth Park — July 3

A great big thanks to the CBRM peo­ple, mu­si­cians and oth­ers who put this mu­sic lineup to­gether. I am sure there are more great things to hap­pen there.
