  • Gushue | Who's afraid of public art? - Nfld. & Labrador - CBC News
    better street design help make our neighbourhoods more livable and more walkable A neighbourhood where people want to walk is also likely to be one where more people feel safe where there is likely to be outdoor activity and where families want to spend time outdoors The things that trigger this behaviour are little things but the research is clear on their long term value I notice this when I travel In San Diego the city has obviously put considerable thought into public art once we became aware of it during a trip a couple of years ago we couldn t get over the number of murals sculptures installations and features we saw Yes a few pieces struck me as ugly or odd but overall I was deeply impressed The Al Pittman memorial in Corner Brook was spearheaded by his good friend artist Gerry Squires John Gushue CBC There are many other examples One I saw recently is the new installation in a small park in Corner Brook that pays tribute to the late writer Al Pittman The bronze laden memorial was a labour of love of artist Gerry Squires and I spent some wonderful minutes exploring it when we stopped by last summer Does appreciating public art make you a snob I sure hope not I m sympathetic to those who feel strongly about health care but I ll make this point no one says on Sunday morning Honey let s get out of the house let s go look at the Health Sciences Centre We need quality health care but we also need a high quality of life That means supporting measures and designs that encourage us to get outdoors to exercise to improve and enjoy the communities around us One of the recent additions to the St John s landscape that I love is the sculpture by Quidi Vidi Lake of a rower in full exertion I ve read magazines in his company walked by him countless times seen children romp around his outstretched oar and marvelled at how Morgan MacDonald s handiwork glistens in the light of both morning and evening Several people have told me that it s now their meet up place for a walk around the pond One of our family s favourites is the life size statue of a little girl who would have attended the old Spencer College school You know the one she s near a little parking lot by Rawlins Cross counting her fingers as she prepares for her next math lesson We often stop by after picking up an ice cream at nearby Moo Moo s or while walking to and from Bannerman Park across the street I ve certainly not been the only person to plop something in the girl s fingers from flowers to an umbrella We need more not less of this in our midst Personally I d prefer to see private donations continue to take the lead but I don t have that much

  • Inn Side Fogo Island - CBC Newfoundland & Labrador
    to make the off angle legs meet the structure above in just the right place to properly support its weight Another section of the Inn with a fishing stage feel The idea for the Inn came from a community meeting in 2004 a few years after the Shorefast Foundation began spearheading educational initiatives on Fogo Island A local woman stood up and said to Zita Cobb and the other Shorefast board members What you re doing is great but you re just educating our children for jobs that don t exist on Fogo Island You people are smart can t you do something to create jobs here A selfie taken in one of the many tidal pools that surround the Inn The view from the ground floor This tiny graveyard framed by the photographer s feet a few dozen metres away from the Inn caused a lengthy construction delay as the province conducted a records search to determine who was buried in it the Shorefast Foundation found the answer in a few hours by calling the lady who buried two horses and a cat there Like any good home in rural N L the Fogo Island Inn has an outbuilding This is where the Inn s laundry facilities are housed as well as a massive wood stove which provides all of the heat and hot water Construction at the Inn was in its final stages during our visit in mid May Here a construction workers helps to prepare the parking lot Tony Cobb has been the project manager at the Inn since construction began He is the youngest brother of Zita Cobb whose technology millions have fueled the Shorefast Foundation Here Tony Cobb shares some news on his smartphone with construction team leaders There are interesting plant and rock formations all over the grounds surrounding the Inn enough to keep the curious busy for days There are several reasons why the Inn management elected to use a wood burning stove for central heat and hot water Firstly because of the traditional connection that wood burning has on Fogo Island But also because of the environmental and social benefits Wood burned at the Inn comes from N L instead of being imported from overseas The people who cut the wood get paid the people who transport the wood get paid the people who saw it into pieces get paid This kind of decision making philosophy is evident in many aspects of the Inn s design and operation Please download the latest version of Flash Player to view this content The CBC s Zach Goudie has this closeup look at the building of the Fogo Island Inn which is complete after three years of construction Designers construction workers and tradespeople from all over the world were recruited to work on the Inn At various times over the last three years workers say they have heard a half dozen languages spoken on site including German Japanese and Italian A group of thirty odd

  • Gushue | Why the loss of Ray Guy has meant so much - Nfld. & Labrador - CBC News
    on the page Ray was fearless in his writing but his personal style belied that When he was a weekly commentator at Here Now he would come into the newsroom to prepare but never made much of a deal of himself He was casual and low key never making a wave I enjoyed having a chat he was always interested in the latest political skinny and occasionally I would have a nugget that would make him smile The purpose of humour is to kill somebody Humour is deadly Ray Guy Watching him record his pieces was instructive While he was notoriously shy Ray could pull it out when the cameras were on In a sense he was playing a persona known as Ray Guy the curmudgeon in the easy chair who could make you roll with laughter When the tapings concluded he d amble away Because we worked with his wife Kathie Housser a now retired CBC producer whose talents behind the scenes deserve recognition we kept in touch with Ray socially I last saw Ray a few years back at Jonathan Crowe s house during a Christmastime drop in While stretching my legs at one point I found Ray alone in a room sitting happily on a couch We had a fine chat I feel grateful to have had moments like that and to have gotten to know a writer of such enormous talent By the way I had always assumed that I first met Ray through the Sunday Express My mom Sheila Gushue told me a nice story this week as we remembered the loss You first met him when I brought you and my sister Lisa to work with me one evening after hours at the Evening Telegram Mom wrote to me in an email My mother in the early Seventies edited what was called the women s page at the Tely it eventually evolved into the lifestyle section Ray was there in his office doing up a column for the next day as was his wont he came out of his den to find out what was going on and to whom the very young voices belonged He was grumpy but cordial to you both and muttered or murmured that someday you two would perhaps be in the same racket as your mother Prescient Mom wrote I feel very sad about his death she wrote A part of my past has died with him How shall we remember him Me too I was so impressed and so happy to see the outpouring of comments notes and emails about Ray after his death It showed what a deep impact he had on thousands of people over a career that spanned half a century He deserves a Viking burial I told my coworkers this week and I m not entirely kidding I hope that reissues of his work continue to be published that his memory is honoured appropriately in the curriculum that his plays are staged again and
