It was with sadness and dismay a few days after Christmas that I was informed that my uncle-in-law Sergeant Gregory John Kruse was killed in action in Afghanistan.

Greg was a brave soldier, a loving husband and father of three girls. He will be sadly missed.

Unpredictable weather confuses humans, not plants

We have been having such strange weather lately it is hard to figure out what outside outfit you should wear, what boots to put on or whether to risk going out in your shoes.

In the middle of December, we had green grass on our front lawn. Admittedly, our house faces south while neighbours facing north were still in their winter mood.

Clutching an acceptance letter to one of the world's most prestigious universities last December, Quebec City's 2007 Rhodes Scholar Annick Routhier Labadie expected the best was yet to come for her. The former Université Laval and Seton Hall basketball player has since described the transition to Oxford University's ancient academic culture as "a big leap."

One in three people in Quebec can't fall asleep at night and few of those are seeking treatment. A recent study published by a group of researchers at Université Laval suggests untreated insomnia is indirectly costing the Quebec economy more in lower productivity and work place absenteeism than the direct costs for treatment in the health care system.

Holland School gets smart with interactive Smartboards

Hands bolt up around Mrs. Beattie's English class at the Holland School. One wouldn't think that a poem by Robert Frost would inspire so much enthusiasm among 11-year-olds. All of the class' attention is directed toward the board at the front of the classroom. Instead of the black slate surface that has dominated the front of classrooms for generations, Mrs.

Snapshot of an ever-shifting political landscape

Four years ago, when the Parti Québécois was engaged in another of its bruising internal battles, Premier Jean Charest stepped back, and with the péquiste fur flying, looked on with a bemused air and said "c'est mon job d'être plate."

The main hallway of Quebec High School is providing shelter for the homeless, or at least a good venue to raise money for the underprivileged. Every lunch hour until the beginning of the holidays, one student will forego lunch to collect change for the Christmas Hamper Campaign from within a the school's newly built cardboard shanty.

Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd is no voodoo practitioner, but she is skilled at reading the bones. With the release of her latest report on the human remains found on the Plains of Abraham, the bio-archaeologist has begun scratching the surface of the identities of the two people unearthed last winter.

Erratum

I would like to personally and on behalf of the members of the Oasis Day Care board apologize for the mistake that appeared in the Oasis Day Care article of December 4, 2008. In said article, it was written that the Citadel Foundation was helping with financial assistance. Although we have approached very informally the Foundation, no understanding between us has been reached.

Seniors want company, not stuff, for Christmas

I know a great many younger folks are desperate for inspiration on what to present to their senior relatives and friends for the holidays. It is far from easy. Most of us are not short of material things. We have enough gloves, scarves, brooches, earrings, shirts, ties and sweaters. Some of the things we have received over the years, we are passing along to younger relatives and friends.

Great Article Mr. French

Mr. French, your article on Vincent Larochelle was excellent. In our class, reading and math were daily treats to be enjoyed. He and three others were captivated by The Hobbit. I'd like to use this occasion to encourage all parents to read to their infants as soon as possible. No other action will have as much of an impact on your child's future success in school.
