“Alaska ... Eaglaska.”

Since my younger days, I have really enjoyed and practiced art. I especially love to draw eagles of all kinds. These amazing birds have captured my mind at the single thought of how majestic they are among all God's winged creatures. The sharp, fearless, yet peaceful look in their eyes....
In my retirement, as a hobby, I went on an adventure in search of becoming an inventor, and a few ideas and copyrights now belong to me as a result. A few years have passed since, but I once overheard someone say that the outline of Alaska looks like the face of a dragon. Being an artist, I couldn’t let it pass unnoticed.
So I spent some time on Google Earth turning the map and studying the state of Alaska. When the map was west-side-up, suddenly I clearly saw looking back at me the great bald eagle holding the olive branch of peace in its right wing. Immediately had my wife Anna look at it. She really liked the look and sound of the discovery, and right then she said “Alaska ... Eaglaska.”
So I went ahead, using my God-given art skills, and mastered a new way to look at the great state of Alaska. I hope it inspires others to find the peaceful, majestic possibilities inside the things all around us.

Injury will keep skater Kaetlyn Osmond out of fall competitions

Photo courtesy of SkateCanada
OTTAWA, Ontario -  A fall during a training session last week will keep Canadian champion and Olympic silver medallist (team) Kaetlyn Osmond off ice for at least the next six weeks.  The 18-year old native of Marystown, Nfld., who now lives and trains in Alberta, represents Edmonton’s Ice Palace FSC.

On Thursday, September 11th, during a routine practice session, Osmond was working on choreography for this season’s programs, when she swerved around another skater. She caught an edge and fell onto the ice, fracturing the fibula in her right leg.  She underwent surgery on Friday at Misericordia Community Hospital in Edmonton to stabilize the fracture and was discharged on Saturday.

She will not be able to put any weight on the right leg for six weeks, keeping her off the ice for the duration of that time.  She will withdraw from the three events she had planned to compete in this fall: Autumn Classic International in Barrie, Ont.; Skate Canada International in Kelowna, B.C.; and Trophée Éric Bompard in Bordeaux, France.

In good spirits, Osmond wanted to thank all her fans and friends for the good wishes. “I really appreciate all the support I’ve received from our medical team at Skate Canada and at Misericordia. I’m obviously disappointed to miss the early part of the skating season, but I will look forward to getting back onto the ice and training again. I certainly hope to be competing in Kingston at the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships in January.”
