Hon­our­ing Hum­bolt

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Front page -

Clarenville Ford Cari­bous and St. John’s Caps, along with of­fi­cials and fans, shared a mo­ment of si­lence to pay re­spect to the Saskatchewan Hum­boldt Bron­cos ju­nior hockey team Satur­day night, April 7, be­fore be­gin­ning the first game of the Herder cham­pi­onship. Ten Bron­cos play­ers, aged 16 to 21, their coach and as­sis­tant coach, and three staff mem­bers were killed Fri­day night, April 6, when a trans­port truck hit their bus at an in­ter­sec­tion. Many schools and or­ga­ni­za­tions in this area — in­clud­ing Her­itage Col­le­giate, Ran­dom Is­land Academy, and the Bon­av­ista-Trin­ity Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion — say they will have a spe­cial ‘jer­sey day’, Thurs­day, April 12, to pay their re­spect. At Con­fed­er­a­tion Build­ing in St. John’s, flags have been low­ered to half-mast. And be­gin­ning April 10, Con­fed­er­a­tion Build­ing was lit in yel­low and green, the col­ors of the Hum­boldt Bron­cos.
