But that was the margin of Victory Friday night at the Royal Manitoba Winter fair Light horse show when Fletcher Challenge won the Royal Bank Royal cup open jumping Competition. The 10-year-old new zealand thoroughbred out of Spruce Meadows in Calgary and Ridden smartly by Linda Heathcott edged stablemate attache Ridden by Jonathon Asselin by that margin in an exciting jump off. The stage was set As seven of the 13 entries managed to Clear the 14-jump course thanks to some great Riding. And All seven knew it would take a Clear round and a fast time to win. The third of the seven to enter the ring for the jump off Heathcott used her mounts Superior Speed and ring savvy to Post a Clear round and time of 37.95 seconds. A she a a Good Speed horse. Not that great on the big outdoors course but still an excellent Speed a winning rider Unda Heathcott then came the wait. The next horse Falkov Ridden by Don Dorsch of Weyburn posted a clean round but needed 40.7 seconds. The next two horses collected faults leaving the last Challenge up to attache a powerful and Long striding hanoverian. And since jump offs and Asselin Are not strangers it was Heathcotte a most serious Challenge. However just one slight error in judgement proved to be the margin of error As attache and Asselin stopped the clock in 38.42 seconds. Asselin Felt he perhaps erred after the first two jumps. A a it a a bit of a Gallop to the next Fence and i tried to punch him up there a a he said. A but he did no to like it and tried to get away a bit.

Schmitz family continues crusade by Bud Robertson Sun staff the cameras and microphones have once again gone away but for Debbie and Wayne Schmitz the fight against drinking and driving is far from Over. In 1986, while living in Leduc alta., a drunk Driver rammed their family Van killing one daughter and leaving another permanently brain damaged. The 26-year-old who hit them had a lengthy record of driving offences and at the time was driving while his licence was suspended. Recently the Brandon couple received a $20-million settlement to care for their seven year old daughter Melissa who has partial vision in one Eye cannot talk and will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life cradling her five week old daughter Chelsea in her arms Debbie vowed to continue fighting for tougher drunk driving legislation. While Melissa recovered in Hospital after the Accident Debbie decided it was time to take a stand on the Issue. A we decided to Channel it anger and frustration in another direction a she said a and that was to make More people aware of what was going on and help change the system somewhat. A we both Felt that it had let us since then she has taken her message into schools in Alberta warning children of the dangers of drinking and driving. While applauding Manitoba a new drinking and driving Laws a the toughest in Canada a Debbie said More needs to be done. The Laws Are there she said a but sometimes i done to think they re being used to the maximum that they could be and while ifs Fine to take away someone a licence and their Freedom ifs also important to find out what kind of problems they have she said adding that Many Are repeat offenders. A if not a problem with drinking then they have a problem with responsibility. A by slapping them with a Fine or putting them in jail they re going to get out and they re going to do it while the Prospect of jail May deter some ifs better to educate people to the dangers while they re still Young she said. A i did t have any idea on How much drinking and driving there was until we were hit a she said. A and i was now that the settlement is through with $500,000 now and the remainder in a structured settlement Over the life of their daughter the family will be Able to get some of the things they need to make Melissa a life More comfortable. With that no longer such a Burden on her mind Debbie said Shell probably get involved again in school Tours Here in Manitoba and continue to lobby for More action from government.
