Ku­dos to the lo­cal li­brary so­ci­ety for their plans to help ev­ery­one en­joy Canada 150, with their goal to do enough fundrais­ing to pay for Pub­lic Li­brary mem­ber­ships for the en­tire pop­u­la­tion of our town, for one year.

Noted golfer Linda Traquair, who also dou­bles as chair­man of the So­ci­ety, told us that they are plan­ning an even­ing for ticket hold­ers to en­joy some friend­ship, ap­pe­tiz­ers, maybe a re­fresh­ment or two, plus a chance to bid on many at­trac­tive items do­nated by lo­cal mer­chants, to be sold at both a live and si­lent auc­tion. It's on Satur­day, March 11, at the Li­brary.

Watched a bit of the Os­cars Night on Sun­day, and even caught the fi­asco when ac­tress Faye Du­n­away read the name off the wrong en­ve­lope, for the Best

Pic­ture award. She and fel­low ac­tor War­ren Beatty were handed the wrong en­ve­lope, but it was up­set­ting to see La La Land pro­ducer Jor­dan Horowitz lit­er­ally rip the en­ve­lope out of Beatty's hand, ad­mit­ting a mis­take had hap­pened. Other than that un­for­tu­nate mishap, we thought the show was well done, and well for­mat­ted. We also thought the me­dia over­played the is­sue of the wrong en­ve­lope.

Con­do­lences to Ken Hud­geon's fam­ily on his re­cent pass­ing. He was a pretty tal­ented man and his pro­jects were well thought out and equally well ex­e­cuted, with all kinds of unique ve­hi­cles on the go.

We'll miss him around town. Rest easy old friend.
