READ ALL ABOUT IT
We have all seen the movie Cool Runnings which is a loosely based film on the Jamaican Bobsled Team and how they got to Calgary's Olympics in 1988. The late John Candy had a role in it, however, it was only mildly entertaining.
Now, after 28 years, a movie is coming out featuring the adventures of Eddie the Eagle, the Brit who captured the hearts of Canadians as the bespectacled young man who entered the ski jumping competition with nothing other than a sense of adventure. He didn't do very well, but by the end of the Olympics, everyone knew the name Eddie the Eagle.
Actor Taron Egerton plays the role of Eddie, and famed actor Hugh Jackman plays his coach.

We have partnered with the great people who are in charge of putting together the 100th Hand Hills Stampede coming up June 3, 4, and 5.
Marilyn Vredegoor sent us some photos of the history of the Stampede and, as readers can see on page 18, one of them is of the "Miller Place", a log cabin built around the turn of the century, (1900, not 2000).
That photo brought back a few memories for this dimestore cowboy, as we attended a few calf brand-
ings there in the 1950's when it was owned by Dick
We remember walking through that house and wondering how anyone could possibly live there, but one memory that stands out, is the house was filled with weathered Calgary Stampede posters from that era.
Thanks to the four couples who agreed to let us tell their romantic stories for our Valentine's issues last week.
Always interesting how love brings people together and makes for interesting reading.
If anyone would like to tell us their own story for future issues, contact this writer.
Sad to hear of the passing of Kay Goruik, who had one of the best smiles we have ever seen, and knowing her from high school days, also one of the prettiest. Condolences to Ron and the family.
Rest easy, old friend.
