'We still have time'
Authorities may have once again called off the search for Jordan Naterer, but his parents are not giving up on finding their son, reports the Telegram's Rosie Mullaley.
Jordan — who lived in St. John’s for almost a decade before moving to Vancouver about two years ago — disappeared in British Columbia almost three weeks ago and his family is sick with worry.
During a telephone interview with Mullaley from Vancouver — where they’ve been staying for the past two weeks — mom Josie Naterer father Greg both broke down in tears as they expressed their despair about not being able to find their son.
“It’s our responsibility as his mother and father to find him,” Josie said. “We don’t give up on our children.”
An unhappy au revoir
Eight surfers from Quebec have left the house they were renting this week after locals complained they were defying Nova Scotia’s quarantine laws by surfing at the public beach after arriving last week.
The Chronicle Herald's Chris Lambie has been following the story after thr RCMP visited the surfers over the weekend after complaints that the men weren’t isolating.
Police returned several times to keep tabs on the surfers, but they didn’t ticket them for breaking Nova Scotia’s quarantine rules.
On Tuesday, the province's health officials announced that surfing on a public beach is prohibited during the 14 days of isolation required of anyone entering Nova Scotia from outside the Atlantic bubble.
Aged to perfection
Peter Wilkins will have to be patient over the next three years as the Newfoundland Distillery Company’s first batch of whisky ages.
Whisky is a new a product for the Clarke’s Beach, N.L.-based distillery and one that co-founder Wilkins said he and his partner, Bill Carter, have wanted to make since they started the company.
The whisky is made from barley grown at Cormack, N.L.'s Larch Grove Farm that is mixed in with malted barley from P.E.I.
"...There’s been an amazing amount of people who’ve asked for the first bottles," Wilkins tells SalyWire's Diane Crocker.
Educating a new kind of educator
After 18 months of learning how to care for children in their First Nation communities through a culturally competent lens, a group of women recently celebrated their graduation from a Mi’kmaw early childhood education pilot program at the Nova Scotia Community College.
The 13 Mi’kmaq women who participated in the Poqji-kina’masulti’kw tel-kina’mujik mijua’ji’jk program had their formal graduation ceremony on Saturday, in the midst of Mi’kmaq History Month.
Ann Sylliboy, of Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey, tells the Chroncile Herald's Noushin Ziafati that they wanted to send off the students “with as much good energy and thoughts and prayers” at the ceremony as they did when they started the program in February 2019.
“Our directors of education … realized they needed early childhood educators and they wanted those early childhood educators to be grounded in a Mi’kmaw worldview,” says Sylliboy.
