Christmas bill blues busted by Infotel cash prize

Nav Canada flight service supervisor Garth Hillman won $1,000 cash by entering Infotel's prize contest.

PENTICTON - Paying bills is a popular choice for spending Infotel's $1,000 cash prizes.

Nav Canada flight service supervisor Garth Hillman will use his cash prize to recover from his Christmas expenses much like welder James Weir used his to pay off his family's vacation bill. But then, Hillman also said he might buy a tablet.

Hillman has been guiding aircraft to safety for 30 years and has spent 20 years at Penticton Regional Airport. He said this cash prize is the first time he's won anything this big.

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Wonder' is a sweetly sincere message movie
  OPINION It's hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline "Choose kindness" and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese
