Kalamazoo, Mich. The early 1960s. Summer. As he walked outside, the yoga instructor couldn't quite believe his eyes. There, standing in the yard next door was a blond girl he'd never seen before: a child, with eyes closed, deeply focused inward. She was moving her body slowly and deliberately. He recognized the ancient Indian asanas immediately. After watching for a few minutes he approached, bewildered. “Who have you been studying yoga with?” he asked over the fence. “Yoga?” She responded. She'd never heard of it.

Sergeant Major Earl Donald Pearson, of Anishinaabe ancestry, was a Hershel boy who later became a United Nations Peacekeeper in the Canadian military. Born on November 6, 1931, Pearson grew up in Bancroft under the shadows of Eagle’s Nest, in a small settlement at the outskirts of town, close to where Tim Horton’s is located today.

Stirling Pro One Stop isn't the sort of place internet browsers come across while surfing the world wide web. Owners Min and Julie Yoo don't have a website; they don't tweet and they don't advertise on Facebook. Perhaps that's because the lonely world of cyber space doesn't quite fit with the homey-style business Min's dad, Chong Yoo, started up 25 plus years ago. Or maybe the Yoo family just doesn't need it.
