Inflation rate regulated by amount of hot air: Kerri Richardson helped out Jerry Lang to prepare his hot air balloon for a trip over Shawville on April 27. Fully inflated, the balloon stands nearly six stories high and holds 77,500 cubic feet of air.
The flight over Shawville got the attention of many spectators, many of whom followed the craft to its final destination north of Radford. One person even left home so quickly that she had to stop at a neighbour’s to borrow some shoes.
Soccer season starts in Shawville: Shawville Recreational Soccer resumed again on Saturday. This year four large intermediate teams, four junior teams and two senior teams will be out every Saturday morning and Wednesday evening.
