Ches got in an accident this past winter. The other driver ran a stop sign and T-boned his car. Luckily Ches was not seriously injured, but his car was a wreck. He went to Healey’s Auto Body Shop at Bonaventure and Empire Avenue, St. John’s and Greg Healey made his car look brand new. Greg says increased traffic has resulted in more car accidents and more repairs. Father-Daughter Update Hey there, I’m Catherine (the cute one with my dad in the picture below).

They didn’t get a moose this time, but they did get a few good pictures. These are pictures of Ches and his moose hunting gang. Page 2 Recent Moose Class Action Developments A lot has happened recently with the Moose Class Action. There was a court hearing September 30th, during which government applied to limit the class period from 10 years to 2 years. If the government is successful in their application, class members like Ben Bellows whose moose-vehicle collisions occurred before January 11, 2009 will be excluded from the action. Ches argued that the negligence of government was not reasonably discoverable in that 2 year time period and the class period should be 10 years. Justice Valerie Marshall is expected to give her decision in December or sooner. Ben Bellows and Philip Drover with the Moose Class Action legal team Ches Crosbie and Jessica Dellow at the court hearing September 30. Also, on October 1st Ches revealed statistics from a scientifically reliable survey showing public support for settling the Moose Class Action: 9 in 10 people on the island of Newfoundland say the moose-vehicle collision problem should be a priority with government, and 8 in 10 Newfoundlanders agree with the proposal to continue building fences to keep moose off problem highway areas. Trial is scheduled to start January 13, 2014. The Moose Class Action has received a lot of media attention recently and Ben Bellows has done an excellent job of representing plaintiffs. Cute Kittens from Hell Hi, it’s Catherine again. I’d like you to meet my 6 month-old kittens, Shy and Adventure. I recently adopted these fun-loving brothers from the St. John’s animal shelter Heavenly Creatures. I absolutely adore them, but you wouldn’t BELIEVE the trouble they get into. They look all innocent in the picture, but they’re devils. So far, they’ve ruined my couches, clawed up my living room curtains, torn holes in my shower curtain, chewed up my iPhone charger, and either lost or eaten two earrings (different sets)! Now do you believe me?!?! But don't get me wrong… I couldn’t live without them.
