    I was as proud as a peacock last night to bring greetings on behalf of NLTA President Lily Cole at the Upper Trinity South branch retirement dinner. Branch President Kim Siegfriedt, despite feeling under the weather for the last little while, did a wonderful job of putting off a class event with competent help and energy from her Branch Executive. I thoroughly enjoyed the address of each and every retiree. Your words were poignant, succinct, honest, hilarious at times, and always spoken from the heart. Nice to see not one, but two Senior Education Officers from Eastern School District, Ms. Barbara Leonard-King and Mr. John Way, who both attended to not only bring greetings, but to show respect and to celebrate the careers of the Upper Trinity South retirees. Thanks so much to Ms. Sharon Penney who brought greetings on behalf of the NLTA President at the Placentia Branch's retirement celebration. I had originally been slotted to attend that function, but the switch enabled me to attend the event in my home branch. Very nice. I also want to thank Placentia Branch President Melvin Critch for his understanding and to wish him and all the Placentia and UTS retirees long and healthy lives full of meaning, joy and comfort. Best to all!

    Spent two enjoyable evenings celebrating the careers of retiring teachers of the Waterford Valley branch (last night) and the Burin-Marystown branch (tonight). Great job by Debra Sparkes-Mercer and Stephen King as well as to their respective branch executives for putting off such meaningful and lively events. It was also nice to be back on the Burin peninsula for the first time in a while. Would have liked to have enough time to drop in on some friends I met while campaigning a couple of years ago in communities such as Bay L'argent, Terrenceville, Grand Le Pierre, English Harbour East, Harbour Mille, Swift Current and many others. Looking forward to more time next trip to do just that.

    How are the constituents of Bellevue feeling about all things political the last little while? How do you all feel about Bill 29, Muskrat Falls, heckling in the House of Assembly, loss of public servants, cuts to Health, Education, Justice, and others? What about the $90 million to Kruger? Just wondering how everyone feels. If you post something, let's all be respectful no matter what side of the issues we take. We've already seen the ugliness that has seemed to permeate politics at all levels. But do feel free to express you opinion whether you be staunch supporters of one or more policies or staunch detractors of same. I'm an insatiable follower of politics and I'd love to know what people are thinking and saying. All the best everyone.

    Hi again all. I just updated my web page. If you haven't read any of it before and don't want to read it all, just browse down to the 28 November 2012 post and read about my visit to Swift Current Academy last night. You can find it here: http://gabrielryan.weebly.com/ All the best.

    Hi everyone. I haven't been very active lately on this particular page, but I do feel compelled to post something when there's an item of interest to my friends in the Bellevue District. I attended the public meeting last night in Swift Current between the Eastern School District and the public about the new configuration of Swift Current Academy. I was struck by how well parents, former teachers, former students and especially present students of SCA presented themselves as they laid out reasons why SCA should not see any changes to its current configuration. As many presenters enunciated through supporting research, there are so many positives to the existence of small schools in our rural aspect and to see the gradual erosion and ultimate demise of them would be doing a disservice to our youth and to our communities. All presenters made their points quite convincingly and often emphatically, especially the Grade 6 girl who sang a song she had been taught in Kindergarten about her school, Swift Current Academy. The teachers of SCA must have been so proud to hear the support the school received and certainly the support the teachers received from virtually every person who stood before the microphone. Very well done everyone and I do honestly believe that Eastern School District, under Chair Mr. Milton Peach, will make the right decision and allow Swift Current Academy to continue not only as is, but even better than it has been in the past. It was also great to speak with my friend and NDP Education critic, Dale Kirby, who works tirelessly to effect positive change in education and beyond. While some may call it political partisanship on my part, I certainly wouldn't say it if I didn't believe it to be true, and it is. We are preparing to spend at least $7.4 Billion on Muskrat Falls and the final tally will no doubt go much higher. Surely we can save at least some of our communities' small schools and can do so for pittance in comparison. Swift Current Academy is one such school and I hope it continues to function as a central component of all the communities it serves.
