FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his lite flashed beforehim. He looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set ot tootpnnts. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his lite. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. Lord, you said thai once I decided to follow you. you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed thatdurmg the most troublesome times in my life. there is only one set ot footprints. I don't undestand why hen I needed you most you would leave me." The Lord replied, "My precious, preciouschild. I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you." Margaret Frshback Powers Minutes earlier, Chantal Biron, Mr! Biron's wife, had run across the resi-; dential street, blood dripping from cuts to her shoulder and hand, police said. Mrs. Biron told the neighbour she) was the victim of domestic violence and the neighbour, Luc ThibaudeauJ went to check out the house, police said. That's where Mr. Thibaudeau dis-j covered Mr. Biron's body. "It's so confusing. It's almost like a joke," said Louis Biron, standing outside a family member's home, re-j counting the bike ride his brother had taken with his wife before he died. "Something doesn't make sense." Police have laid no charges in the suspicious death and last night the body was being sent for an autopsy. The Birons have no history of domestic violence, said Surete du Quebec Sgt. Marc Ippersiel. The only other people in the Biron home at the time of the death were the couple's daughter, 13, and son, 14, police said. There are no suspects, but police are calling Mrs. Biron a "person of interest." Word of the death rippled through the town of 2,500 yesterday. Passing drivers in tractors, trucks and cars peered down Papineau Street, about 55 kilometres east of downtown Ottawa, at the yellow police tape and forensic truck. Some members at the nearby Club de Golf de Thurso cancelled their tee-off times to grieve for Mr. Biron, a onetime director of the club and former president of the town's curling club. It was only five days ago that Mr. Biron was playing in the golf club's men's night. The avid golfer, who had played at the club since he was a youngster and had a 16-handicap, had the best score of the night, his broth er said. 'He never said anything that sug gested things were going bad," said Louis Biron. Neighbours remembered a helpful man who volunteered his time and tools to trim nearby cedar hedges. The scream that some residents heard at 12:20 a.m. yesterday was the first disturbing noise to come from the house, they said. 'He was a nice neighbour. He was just a nice guy, said Karine Forcier, who grew up on the street and returned yesterday to comfort her mother. Mr. Biron had worked in television since he was a teenager. Most of his recent work involved editing commercials for Gatineau television stations CHOT and CFGS, both owned by Radio Nord Communications Inc. As a younger man, he had worked as a news cameraman, filming break ing news and events. Patrick Cyr, the assistant director of production and operations at the stations, remembered Mr. Biron as a man of contrast; he was an imposing six-foot-three and weighed more than 200 pounds, but he was extremely mild-mannered and easy-going, Mr. Cyr said. I've known him for 20 years and I've never seen him stay mad for more than five minutes," he said. "He was a great employee and a good friend." Police find, destroy marijuana in Gatineau park The MRC des Collines police have destroyed 71 marijuana plants that Chelsea resident Jean-Paul Murray reported finding near the former Gatineau Park visitor centre on Aug. 7. The plants were near a parking lot up the creek from the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre and close to Meech Lake Road, used by thousands of cottagers and residents, including Prime Minister Paul Martin whose official country residence is in the area. Const. Martin Fournel, a police spokesman, said investigators found the marijuana in dense brush near a parking lot, but made no arrests. Const. Fournel said anyone who sees marijuana growing in the park should call police at 459-9911. Police found another small patch of seven marijuana plants two weeks ago at Ramsay Lake off Eardley Road in the Gatineau Hills. Const. Fournel said police didn't wait for anyone to harvest the plants at either location because they believed the growers would expect offi cers to be waiting for them after news reports about cannabis in the park.
