Card craze continues In our last issue, I theorized that the interest in card collecting, which we have been made aware of through let- ters sent to L-H, is likely unique to Djúpivogur. However, I have been proven wrong. In our last issue we pub- lished three requests for cards from Djúpivogur, and two from Bíldudalur, and in this issue, there is a request for cards from an individual in Selfoss. Responding to one such request has Hekla in Spain There is Hekla in Iceland, in Mani- toba and in Ontario, and now, Emilía Jónsdóttir-Anderson of Grand Forks, N.D., informs us that there is also one in Spain. Hekla is the name of a hostel, owned and operated by an Icelander, Magnús Kristjánsson, in Costa Brava, Spain. Emilía and her husband Duane stayed there last spring. Emilía told L-H that Hostal Hekla is located on a great beach in a beautiful area. Who are they? Can any of our readers help identify the children in the above photo?

Developer’s vision begins to take shape The above i$ the títle of an artícle which was recently featured in the business section of The Kansas City Star. Itfocuses on Charles A. Gamey, a Westem Icelander and a Kansas City developer. Mr. Gamey is molding from hilly, wooded and partly undermined terrain a long-held vision of a Northland hous- ing and commercial project to rival the area’s best. “I think the Northlands needs an upscale, real alternative to some of the Johnson County projects, ”said Garney, longtime Northland resident and president of Briarcliff West Devel- opment Co. His 270-acre,$274 million Briarcliff West project is a noteworthy sign of activity in an environment of slow development. So far, Garney has spent about $10.7 million of his own money to acquire and reshape the property. If the project succeeds, it could provide a strong boost for Northland and Downtown develop- ment... Barring construction for a specific tenant, Garney expects to “ignore com- mercial for two to three years and con- centrate on developing a quality resi- dential project. When the time is right, the commercial tenants will come to us.” Charles is the son of the late Arthur Garney (Björn Sigurðsson) who was bom at Icelandic River in the New Iceland settlement on Lake Winnipeg.
