Bill MacLean’s 5 minutes – 5 questions

We thought it might be a fun way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Beach Metro News by asking various Beachers a few quick questions about themselves. Nothing too revealing. Nothing too complicated. Nothing that would really make them think too hard (this is supposed to be fun after all!) These questions would present our readers with a quick snapshot of the people who respond.

And who knows, one day, when you least expect it, – you could just be walking down the street – someone may stop you, someone you know…

Here are the questions. What would be your answers?

1. favourite place in the Beach area
2. hat or not
3. beer, wine or whiskey
4. car, truck, bike, or TTC
5. cat or dog
6. heels or flats (for the women)

Our first “responder” is a man close to every Beacher’s heart. In fact this fellow received the honour of being the very first Beach Citizen of the Year. He is none other than Gene Domagala. I asked Gene the five questions, and here is what he had to say.

1. favourite place in the Beach area – the R.C. Harris Filtration Plant & the Leuty Lifeguard Station
2. hat or not  – hat (“I have 20 hats”)
3. beer, wine or whiskey – vodka
4. car, truck, bike, or TTC – bike
5. cat or dog – both (“I have had several cats & dogs”)

Over the next several issues I will spring these questions on other well-known Beach residents, and hope to get some very interesting – and enjoyable responses.
