— Tris­tan Jenk­ins (left) and Hai­ley Davis (right) have more in com­mon be­sides be­ing the new­est young­sters named to the Town of Car­bon­ear’s royal court. The two four-year-olds were born on the same day in 2009. Tris­tan, who is the son of Sab­rina Jenk­ins, a for­mer Miss New­found­land and Labrador, was named Lit­tle Mister Car­bon­ear Mon­day, Aug. 4 dur­ing the Car­bon­ear Day fes­tiv­i­ties. Hai­ley is the daugh­ter of Mag­gie O’Keefe and Jimmy Davis. She will reign as Lit­tle Miss Car­bon­ear for the next year. Hai­ley’s mom said she de­cided at the last minute dur­ing the fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties at Paddy’s Gar­den to put her daugh­ter in the pageant against six other girls. Tris­tan’s mom said she signed him up to help him over­come stage fright. The two moms met in the hos­pi­tal when their two kids were born. The pageant was judged by Car­bon­ear-Har­bour Grace MHA Sam Slade and Mayor Ge­orge Butt Jr.
