Regina man almost throws away comic collection, discovers Fantastic Four #5 edition worth $18,000

[ad_1]

A Regina man is considering himself fortunate after discovering a comic book, he was about to giveaway, may be worth close to $20,000.

For years, Al Neumiller kept an old box of comics hanging around the house, but about three weeks ago, he figured it was time to get rid of it.

Neumiller said he was either going to donate them to the Salvation Army or simply throw them in the trash.

But after reading a newspaper article on Lee Pearson, the owner of Bridge City Comics in Saskatoon, about finding an old classic Archie book, Neumiller thought he would bring his collection to him.

So he made the trip to Saskatoon.

“I had a bunch of Archie comic books so I thought maybe he would be a good guy to talk to see if he wanted them,” Neumiller said.

Pearson wasn’t interested in more Archie comics, but offered to go through the rest of Neumiller’s box.

“I thought he was going to have a heart attack for a minute because his eyes got as big as saucers. It was an amazing reaction when he looked at it,” Neumiller said.

That was Pearson’s reaction the moment he laid eyes on Marvel’s 1962 Fantastic Four #5 comic.

“I stopped dead in my tracks. There was a brief second of disbelief and then my forehead got very warm and I felt a little dizzy,” Pearson said.

Pearson said he believes the copy would sell for about $18,000, or even more.

“From my reaction, he knew it was worth something and I couldn’t have been happier to give somebody news like that,” Pearson said.

Neumiller said Pearson wanted to buy the comic off him right there and then, but was honest in telling him that it was a little bit out of his price range.

Now the two are working together on finding a professional who can accurately value his Fantastic Four #5 comic before selling it.

So for now, Neumiller said it’s safely locked away.

Sock collection for Kelowna homeless exceeds goal

[ad_1]

Cole Himer thought his goal to collect 1,000 pairs of socks for Kelowna’s homeless was ambitious.

Reaching that goal turned out to be easy when donations started pouring in.

“We ended up raising 2,040 pairs of socks,” Himer said.

That equals two pairs of socks for every person living in a shelter facility in Kelowna, he said.

The 18-year-old and his family brought their winter tradition to Kelowna, having moved from Edmonton recently.

“Socks for our Homeless” was organized by Himer, his father and other young people at his church, Emmanuel Pentecostal in West Kelowna.

As word of the charitable effort spread, donations came in through Rose Valley Elementary, Mar Jok Elementary, FedEx and Himer’s church.

“It’s good to see the Christmas spirit and people chipping in,” Kelowna Gospel Mission executive director Randy Benson said.

Benson met Himel as he brought a box to their shelter Tuesday afternoon.

“Socks are the number one item that are requested for, especially at this time of year. It seems like we can never have too many,” Benson said.

Himel is grateful for the community’s support that made his first sock drive in Kelowna successful.

“We just hope to spread the joy that Jesus did at Christmas,” Himel said.

Privacy commissioner investigating personal data collection at cannabis stores

[ad_1]

P.E.I.’s information and privacy commissioner has launched an investigation to see if the new government run cannabis stores are collecting personal data from customers — and how they’re using any information collected. 

Commissioner Karen Rose said she decided to investigate after being informed by a member of the public that the stores are using electronic ID scanners. 

Why is that practice not taking place at the liquor stores or with people purchasing tobacco?— Kara MacRae

« Our investigation will include any and all personal information which is being collected by the cannabis outlets, » Rose said in an email to CBC News Friday. « We are also investigating how that personal information, if any, will be used, and whether, and how, it will be disclosed. »

Rose said she’ll also look in the security measures that are in place to protect customers’ personal information. 

Data found stored in device

In an email to CBC Friday, Cannabis Management Corporation (CMC) said an IT specialist examined the scanner after concerns were raised and found some data was being kept for 24 hours inside the device.

Customer privacy is a priority, said Zach Currie, director of the province’s cannabis operations. He said that no data is collected about anybody who visits or purchases anything at the new retail stores. (Steve Bruce/CBC)

« This data was immediately wiped and settings have been changed so nothing can be kept in the future, » the email said.

« The privacy commissioner has been in contact with the Cannabis Management Corporation and CMC will be fully briefing her on this matter. »

However, later on Friday CMC announced it would be pulling the scanners from the stores. 

‘Standalone device’

Zach Currie, the director of cannabis operations for CMC, said the scanners were merely a tool to flag fake IDs and not intended to collected personal information from customers.  

Privacy commissioner Karen Rose says she decided to investigate P.E.I.’s cannabis stores after hearing they’re using electronic ID scanners. (Krystalle Ramlakhan/CBC)

« Our core pillar of our customer service piece is ensuring customer confidentiality, so we don’t retain any data, » said  Currie. 

« Those ID scanners are not connected to any sort of internet. They are not connected to our Wi-Fi. They are essentially a standalone device that our folks use. »

Currie said the scanner is an industry standard used in other jurisdictions to validate a wide variety of national and international identification cards.

He says staff have been instructed to scan every person’s ID entering the store, even people who appear to be much older than 19 — the legal age for purchasing cannabis. 

Cannabis stores ‘overdoing it’

Currie acknowledges the scanning practice has prompted several questions and concerns from Islanders, including Kara MacRae, who emailed P.E.I.’s finance minister. 

Valid photo identification cards must be verified by a staff member at every P.E.I. Cannabis location to ensure that no one under the age of 19 enters the store. (Steve Bruce/CBC)

« I question the scanning. What is being done with the information they’re collecting off the ID? Where’s it going? Who has access to it? Is it protected under privacy laws? And why is that practice not taking place at the liquor stores or with people purchasing tobacco? » MacRae said.

Currie said given how new the legal cannabis industry is, and the concerns around young people getting their hands on pot, the province may be « overdoing it in some circumstances to ensure we’re thought of as a retailer very focused on social responsibility. »

He said the practice of using scanners and IDing everyone will be reviewed, and may be changed « in the months ahead. »

The privacy commissioner hasn’t said how long her investigation will take.
