It’s been brought to our attention that we made a mistake in the front-page story on cannabis last week. The unnamed presenters at the public hearing at the Oct. 2 town council meeting were proposing 70 and 50 metre setbacks, not 100 metres.

We hear the Slave Lake Kodiaks are gearing up for another season of senior women’s hockey in the Peace Country Female Hockey League. Not only that, but they are hosting this season’s Ice Breaker Tournament, which is the season-opening get-together of all the teams. That is on the 19th to 21st of October – this coming weekend, in other words.

Don Calvert of Marten Beach never misses an opportunity to say how much he and his wife Joan enjoy reading the Lakeside Leader. ‘Keep doing what you’re doing!’ he says, or encouragements to that effect. We’ll say the same back to him: ‘Keep doing what you’re doing!’
One of the things Mr. Calvert does is write elegant and forceful letters to the editor, the most recent of which you’ll see on Page 10 of this week’s Leader.

Becky Peiffer tells us the Roland Michener School class of 1983 held a reunion sometime recently, and among other things, raised $705 for the Northern Haven Support Society. She showed us a photo of the group, which included Joey Mouallem, Brendan Morgan, Leslie Vanderwell and various other folks whose names we can’t remember right now.

Bears, bears, bears. The continued blockage of the trails in Slave Lake is getting on people’s nerves, but of courses it’s for safety reasons, and a bear or two was seen in town as recently as last Wednesday. One also showed up at the Mitsue fire hall, during the M.D. council meeting last Wednesday.

A black bear decides it doesn’t really want to stick around the Mitsue fire hall when an M.D. council is in progress.

Contacts at the Rotary Club tell us the Grey Cup pool is about 70 per cent sold out. These are the $2 tickets. They can be purchased at The Business Factory, Eiserman Meats or from Harry Bartlett.
The big Rotary $10,000 cash raffle is also underway, with a draw date of Jan. 15. They are $10 apiece. Get ‘em for stocking stuffers, says Johnny Rotary.

Sad things sometimes lead to happy things; one of those was the visit last week of several members of the family of Jean-Luc Deba – all the way from France and New Zealand. They were coming mainly to accompany Deba’s mother, Paulette, who had never been so far from home, but wanted to see the place her son died. Thanks to Tyler Warman, Murray Kerik and Brian Rosche for helping make this happen.
