Page 2 THE QUODDY TIDES, Eastport, Maine 25 December, 1970 Beaver Harbour Black's Harbour" ISLANLIt-RS IN NEW LEAGUE The Deer Island Hockey Team is in a new League this year competing against teams from McAdam, Milltown and St. Stephen. After a few seasons of play in the Black's Harbour Arena the Islanders are back again playing at the Sir James Dunn Arena in St. Andrews. It looks as though hockey fans have a treat in store for them this season as all games played so far have been very close- the teams being very evenly matched. The Islanders have won, lost and tied games so far. Games are played every Monday evening and it is expected attendance will rise sharply following the busy Holiday season. CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM THE PREMIER Island residents attending the recent public meeting held by the Charlotte County Progressive Conservative Assn. at Leonardville heard a message from the Premier of New Brunswick, Richard Hatfield, which included Season's Greet- ings to all residents of Deer Island. The meeting was called by Garnet Boyd, President of the Charlotte County P.C. Assn. for the purpose of electing an Executive Committee, Poll Chairmen and a Zone Chairman for Deer Island. Attending were Mr. Boyd, MLA's DeCosta Young and Leland McGaw as well as a number of Island residents. The message from the Premier was "taped" by Mr. Boyd earlier and played at the meeting by him. Mr. Boyd explained that he had been talking to Mr. Hatfield prior to coming to Deer Island and the Premier said he would like to send a personal message to the people of Deer Island -- perhaps by letter. Mr. Boyd suggested to the Premier that he speak the message over the telephone and he would record it - playing it back at the meeting. Mr. Hatfield thought this was a wonderful idea and so the arrangements were made. Mr. Boyd, who already owned a very fine tape recorder, then obtained other necessary equipment from the Telephone Co. to record the message. Reproduction of the Premier's message was excellent as natural as if he had been present and speaking in person. He thanked all who had supported him in the recent Stirling Lambert - Tel. 747-2921 BOY BITES DOG When man bites dog - "that's news," as the saying goes - so we presume when boy bites dog - that's news too. Little Billy Barteau, one year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Barteau of Chocolate Cove did just that. He had a bag of potatoe chips from which he was eating - and treating his dog "Goldie." When Goldie decided she wanted all of the chips and tried to take them away from him - he bit her. Although she protested loudly, no permanent or serious damage occurred to Goldie - and Bill retained ownership of the chips. SEASON'S GREETINGS We would like to wish all readers of this column a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year - to heck with the "prosperous" bit - we're all better off poor. CELEBRATES 89th BIRTHDAY Walter Stuart of Stuart-town was 89 years young on December 15th. Most people who know him will agree that you couldn't say he is 89 years old as he has more stamina and get-up-and-go than most folks half his age. Although he retired as a fishernidn a few years ago he manages to keep active. He is a talented painter and an avid old time fiddler. A favourite with the children of the community, his home always has the "Welcome mat" out for the little folk who skate on the pond in his back yard. Waiter's is the place to go to get warm, use the phone, or dip into the always open candy box. Visiting him on his birthday were his daughters, Mrs. Ronald Gaudett (Lena), Mrs. Adolphus Hawkins (Muriel), Mrs. Victor Hatt (Gertrude), and Mrs. Donald Lambert (Iva), and his son Lester, who flew from Toronto. JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS Hazen Parks of St. George, who is well known on the Island, received an un- expected Christmas present recently. L The phone rang and when he answered it the voice on the other end told him he was eligible to win a prize in the Maxwell House Coffee Contest. He was given a mathematical question to answer and when he did so correctly (the answer was 1000) the caller said "that is what you have just won - $1000.
