<strong>Happy retirement:</strong> After working as a psychiatric aide at the Ponoka Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury for 48-and-a-half years, Ray Hart is retiring. He worked on the night shift for 36 of those years. It is believed that Hart may be the longest serving full-time staff member in the history of the Centennial Centre, although Human Resources was not able to confirm. Hart will remain as a part-time, causal staff member. He is pictured here with his wife Linda Hart at the main entrance on March 5. (Emily Jaycox/Ponoka News)
