Bob Anthony, author of Novus MirabilisThis book was born from the stories my father told me and my adventure of growing up in a freer time. I realized from a young age how fortunate I had been to have exposure to such a varied experience and I wanted my children to know these people when my dad and I were gone. Cast your memory back and enjoy. Janet Clarkson (nee Hall)Janet Clarkson (nee Hall) was born, according to one of her dads songs, at home one day when they were all away. The year was 1943. She attended a one-room school where there were at the best of times 13 kids. Janet married Pete Clarkson and they have raised two children, been a part of six grandchildrens lives, and are now enjoying three great-grandchildren. Always an entrepreneur, in 1960, she and Pete opened Bay Side Boutique & Art Gallery which is still operating. Six years ago, Janet entered local politics and is currently the Mayor of Trent Lakes.
