Who should I meet at Village Variety the other day but Bob Cooke who is with the ambulance service. His brother is with the OPP in Red Lake. I’ve known the boys since they were knee-high to a grasshopper–since then they’ve gone through college, graduated and have positions. When you do not see anyone for a few years, it is surprising how quick they mature. I’ve known Randy and Brenda since the first day they had arrived here.

The past weekend, Kyle Guba burned up the Sudbury raceways, driving away with three firsts in heat one and two and the feature to edge ahead in the point system. Last week Kyle could only place first in heat one, second in heat two, and second in the feature. A week before he outclassed his opponents, winning three first. “It was one of those days everything went his way. The track was perfect, the Go-Kart had a smooth sailing,” noted his father Jay Guba.
