MORE MYSTERY: At long last

MORE MYSTERY: At long last, with the help of Island Lock owner Aaron Weikon, Jill Bonnell (above) was finally able to get into the safe that was found Aug. 8 when workers were demolishing the 80-year-old Thwaites Norris building on Alberni Highway in Parksville. However, the mystery continues, as the only thing Bonnell (nee Thwaites) found in the safe was a key. We may never find out where the key fits but if it comes to light you will find it at and in the pages of the Parksville Qualicum Beach News.
