Orkney Or­a­cle

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Norma West 403-823-9750

The news this week is again more about sports but I do know there are some of the farm­ers in Orkney haul­ing grain out and emp­ty­ing bins so there is room for the fer­til­izer to be hauled. Bit of a prob­lem as the road bans are in ef­fect in some ar­eas now.

Sports news this week is the great honor Team Canada and the Hol­man rink from On­tario have brought home Gold in the Women’s Curl­ing from Be­jing! I be­lieve it is the first time a rink has gone through the en­tire event with­out a loss and is the first gold to be won since Jen­nifer Jones many years ago in Ver­non.

Nice to see the Flames back on track and what a hard-hit­ting game on Satur­day night against the Blues. They all must have had some mighty sore spots on Sun­day.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Tony Koll­man upon be­ing in­duct- ed to the Hall of Fame - I’ve known him since early days in Hanna. Well de­served award!

It’s hard to re­al­ize that March is al­most over and we can get ready to try out some April Fool’s jokes on friends. It is al­most time for Easter as well. How many of you spoil grand­kids or great-grand­kids with lots of candy? I pre­fer to do some­thing dif­fer­ent and par­ent’s seem to think it’s al­right too... I give one rea­son­able sized Easter Egg and then a small do­na­tion to their piggy bank or just go and have fun spend­ing. I ex­pect most go and have fun de­cid­ing what to buy and it saves on cav­i­ties. That seems to be the up­dates for this week.

A com­ment from Deepak Cho­pra states: “There is no get­ting around that turn­ing bad things into good things is up to you.”

Re­mem­ber to smile.
