Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- Jan. 8, 2014

Thanks times three

Sincere thanks to the three gentlemen who helped me out of the snowbank at 18th and Rosser Avenue last Friday afternoon around 11 a.m. Thank you very much gentlemen.

Where was the bus?

Can anyone help me understand why my son, who is in Grade 7, walked from Harrison back to Green Acres School on Monday after his gym class because no bus showed up to pick him up? Why, in -50 C, was my son outside walking? I would like an explanation.

We appreciate your efforts

A couple of senior citizens with mobility issues were very grateful to the people who dug us out in -30 C temperatures (let alone the windchill factor), after the recent snowfall. Matt and Dave from Eco Green, and its staff were simply wonderful.

Thanks for your help

I just read about Hydro crews restoring power in Toronto in the Brandon Sun, it never mentioned the 40 Manitoba Hydro employees were also there, some from Brandon. They all missed Christmas with their families. Thank you. Thank you, Manitoba Hydro employees.

Volunteers did get paid, after all

OK, so in the article “Brandon Man Among Ice Storm Hydro Heroes,” the Winnipeg Free Press failed to mention how much the Manitoba Hydro workers got paid for “volunteering.” We have a friend who works for Hydro and he and his wife said for the amount they were going to be paid, he’d gladly leave his family over Christmas.
