  Edward Murphy
My husband, Edward Murphy. Edward's very environmentally friendly. There's a beach, or landwash, as we call it. He cleans this place from end to end every spring. Every person in Little Bay, Marystown, really feels pride in his work. He was presented with this sign by the Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce (BPCOC).

Thanks to the people of Little Bay for interest enough to put his name forward for this.

This was found while digging in the yard around our home in Sweet Bay, Bonavista Bay. Does anyone out there have an idea what it might be used for?

Dear Downhome:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Summer 2014 edition of “Inside Labrador”. The pieces included were well written and very reflective of "The Big Land". Nice to see this part of NL getting a well deserved focus. Good on you, Downhome.
