(Were you going to school at the time? 1956.) No, I was working in Sydney here. Yeah, I was working in Sydney. I was work? ing with a local market here in Sydney, David's Market. (During the time of the Cinderella Miners, as people were getting more and more ex? cited about them, were you noticed in the streets? Did people talk about it?) Uh, well, not during the winter. The winter Cedar House Bakery and Restaurant 674-2929 OPEN DAILY FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER bread • scones • oatcakes • cookies • pies TRANS-CANADA HWY NEAR SEAL ISLAND BRIDGE was the same as any other winter. When the play-offs came in Cape Breton, this is where people went. And it started to get noticed, and the crowds started coming out. The play-offs in North Sydney, we packed the rinks--both rinks. Then we moved into Sydney--and they really packed the rinks there, in both places. Glace Bay and Sydney. (What makes it good hockey?) The spirit. The friendships. We all knew that we had to go to work the next morning. And in? stead of taking a real good--a cheap shot, as we called it--a cheap shot at a person, you'd let him go. For the simple reason you'd have to eat a meal tomorrow down the street, working at his job and you'd be at your job. So you didn't jeopardize that in any way, or tried not to. But it was ex? citing hockey; it was wide-open hockey. It FOREST FIRE! Last year between April and October, 26 forest fires were reported in Cape Breton. Fortunately, fast action by Lands and Forests crews and volunteer firefighters put them out before they did much damage. Because even a small brush fire can get out of control and ignite nearby trees in seconds, eariy detection is essential.
