Disabilities can be invisible

Shame on the man in the white truck at the Amherstburg Ribfest who went out of his way to berate me because I did not look like I had a disability as I pulled into a handicap spot at the Libro Centre. He commented twice, quite sarcastically, that he could help me get my wheelchair out of our car as he shook his head in disgust. Just because I'm not a senior citizen does not mean that I don't have a need for a handicap permit. I do my best to still enjoy life despite 17 years of chronic and increasing pain. Your ignorance, disapproval, cockiness, and chastisement was uncalled for and based solely on the fact that we were both under 50 and healthy looking as we sat in our car. Shame on you. You've been spotted.

Before calling 911

So this has been bothing me since Tuesday and I need to share.

My son who is 8 years old went to Lacasse Park in Tecumseh with his Respite Worker. It was their first day together after a few months of me trying to find one for him with no luck, but that's not the problem.

While they were out I received a phone call from a private name, private number, it was a police officer asking if I knew that my son was with this man This man who by the way has a police clearance in order to become a respite worker, this man who I had interviewed a week prior.
All because 3 woman noticed that my son didn't look like the man he was with, so their conclusion of the situation was that the man isn't his father, so he must be kidnapped because he's calling the man by his first name.

1st thank you for being that concerned, but 2nd please people be aware that not all children with Respite Workers are in wheel chairs, or have Autisim, or Down Syndrom, some kids have mental health issues, and hidden behaviour issues and need a Respite Worker. 3rd that man my child was with could have been an uncle, family friend, neighbor or a boyfriend of mine, because my son's father isn't around and hasn't been for 5 years.

Please when being observant, you keep all factors in mind before calling 911 and reporting things.

Dedicate Windsor Star delivery driver

I just want to wish the 71 year old Windsor star delivery driver a speedy recovery. He slipped on ice while delivering the paper in Amherstburg on February 13th, 2018. He broke his hip, but that didn't stop him from continuing his route by throwing the papers on the driveway instead of delivering to the porch before heading to the ER to be checked. This shows incredible dedication to his job and those who look forward to their paper. Sir, you have been spotted and we wish you a speedy recovery.

You saved my daughters life

I had the most horrifying thing happened today leaving Wal-Mart. My daughter was eating a candy she decided to swallow the whole thing it got stuck in her throat. They could not get it out she was gagging her face went white and purple she couldn't breathe. I didn't know what to do I was trying everything and i was screaming for help. I had a couple come running up to me trying to help but nothing was working we could not get it out of her throat. For a minute she stopped breathing, gagging and stopped moving.
This older lady came running up to us, grabbed Jordan out of his arms and gave her the baby Heimlich. If it wasn't for her who knows what would have happened! I wish I would have got her name, thank God that you showed up and saved my little girl. You are an angel in my eyes, Jordan is now home and everything is good, just have to keep an eye on her breathing. When you think you're prepared for everything and something like that happens I felt so hopeless for my child. Everything I was doing wasn't helping her, watching your child trying to breathe but can't it's the worst feeling ever. So again to this amazing lady who helped my little girl I want to say thank you so much
God bless you xoxo

My beautiful nine-year-old female microchipped Siamese cat "Snowshoe" has been missing since September 11, 2016 from our home at 93 Riverview Blvd., St. Catharines Ontario. There have been no sightings. She could've been relocated anywhere. If you know someone who has acquired a new Siamese cat with her distinguishing white chin, white tipped front paws and white back legs in the last nine months, please let me know. Any leads are welcomed.

Thank you Sobeys Amherstburg

I wanted to thank Trisha, from the bakery at Sobeys Amherstburg for creating the best cake ever for my daughter's birthday! She had called last week to inform me that in spite of all their best efforts, the image machine at their store would just not work and they would be unable to provide me with the image we ordered for our cake. She gave me a couple of other options of what we could do on the cake. I thanked her and said we will figure something out. I had to call back a short time later to clarify a couple of thinks and she repeatedly thanked me for being so kind and not getting mad at her. She had made several calls that day and most had not been received well. I went on a hunt for something to put on this cake and finally settled on a package of stickers I found at a dollar store. My daughter's party was dog themed, so it had to fall into that category. I took the stickers in to Tricia and she was so nice and thanked me again for being so nice and pleasant about the situation and introduced me to her coworkers as her favorite customer that was so nice about the cake. I laughed and left the stickers in her capable hands. We'll let me tell you, not only did the cake look amazing, my daughter was jumping up and down saying it was even better than the boring picture she was supposed to get and it was the best cake ever because no one will ever have one like it!
I would also like to say shame on the people that were so enraged with this poor woman that was just doing her job. She has no control over the machine and they had done everything in their power up until that point to rectify the issue. They were offering other solutions to try and accommodate the orders. My daughter cried at first when I told her, but she's a child and I would expect that reaction from a child.
