Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE mHBRIDGE HIRAID Solurdoy, 30, 1972------- family life by MAUREEN JAMIESOM f lr J rjON'T you just love fortune lellcrs, soothsayers and psychics and people like that? I find them terribly hard to resist. About three weeks ago I was invited lo look into my future via psycbometry, and as I'd never crossed swords wilh it before, 1 leaped at the chance. 1 gave the lady with the psychic powers ray glasses, ring and watch to hold, and sat back in eager expec- tation. She started lalking, and my future came up roses, roses, all tile way. I walked out of there four feel up in the air, and trotted home to await my great future; due to start in just 2L days. It was a long wail, but finally the great day dawned Suddenly, I was a new woman. Not today the regu- lar boring routine of dragging the bed off my back at the last possible moment, staggering half uncon- scious around the house until some member of the family finally took pity on me, pointed me in the direction of the door, and pushed me oft to work. I bounded out of bed and got to the office at least ten minutes early, which has never happened before. I could hardly wait for things to happen. Well, first off, I had a phone call from my eight- year-old. She'd just tossed her cookies at lunch, so I had to dash home, pop her in the tub and mop up the house. Burning the carrots didn't actually count, because I always do that anyway. But later on I got clobbered over Ihe skull with a racquet in what was supposed to be a friendly game of badminton. To round out the day, I dropped a drawer of cut- lery on my left big toe, and judging from the way it still feels, it must be shattered into at least a thous- and pieces under all that black and blue. Now I've gone on tha wagon as far as all this kinc of thing is concerned. Heavens-to-Betsy! this is good luck, I shuddei to think what the bad bits of my future are like, am I'd just rather not know any more about it, thank you very much! _____ STANKO MATOTEK AND BIG BIRD Bring back our Big Bird By MAUREEN. JAM1ESON Family Eilllor The battle is on! Across Can- ada, parents and educators arc fighting for the right of cliil- dren to view Big Bird and Cook- ie Monster on the highly-rated Sesame Street TV sronram. These are tlie people who hope to create enought furor lo persuade the Canadian Radio- Television Commission to how to the demands of Hie people who pay its salaries and take Sesame Street and other qual- ity educational programs out of foreign content and place them t in a neutral cnlegory. Many local residents are fighting to: the cause. Jill Kotkas, who operates a city nurst'y school, said "I think it's Hie best TV program there's ever been for children anywhere. "I've taught children now for ive years. As soon as Sesame Street started, the children be- came so much more interested n learning to read and wrilo and their she.added.
