Why “Scooch” is never a good word for a woman

Why “Scooch” is never a good word for a woman

I was in need of a medical tune-up, so I called my doctor. The receptionist said he could fit me in late in the afternoon. I thought it would be a quick visit. I would be put up on the hoist and be back on the road in short order. When I got there, the […]

Open Letter to the Premier

Open Letter to the Premier

Ms. Wynne, I’m sure it will come as a surprise to you that Prince Edward County residents are angry and frustrated to the point of explosion. I assume this is surprising information, considering you have evoked our democratic right to voice our opinion concerning proper location of Industrial Wind Turbines, and thus take control of […]

In defense of Sir John A.

In defense of Sir John A.

There has been talk, and a few letters, recently about the alleged ‘racism’ of Sir John A. Macdonald. This gets under my skin, because I’ve always found that history is ‘selective’ when pen is put to paper, and the Great Book of History is forged. Someone once said: “History is written by the winners,” and that […]

Puzzling Things in a Warped World

Puzzling Things in a Warped World

Unlike other column writers, who seem to have all the answers to anything that can happen anywhere in the world, sometimes I’m just puzzled. And I turn my puzzlements over to you, to help find the pieces my inadequate brain has missed. To the point: I see a very reactionary trend in the County. This, […]

Lesson learned from Hospice volunteers speaks volumes

Lesson learned from Hospice volunteers speaks volumes

Recently there has been much written about Hospice Prince Edward in the local media.

Time to face some facts

Time to face some facts

    Much against my better judgment, I’d like to pursue the comments from my last column, which seems to have generated some productive thought around the County. This time, I’d like to look at the problem from less of a societal point of view, but as a practical scientific experiment. First we need to have […]

'I think I smell a rat'; Tell the hospice story and concerned volunteers' letter

‘I think I smell a rat'; Tell the hospice story and concerned volunteers’ letter

She had served in this position for six years spearheading the creation of a residential hospice in Prince Edward County. I, along with many others, had worked with her from the very beginning  in both  fundraising  […]
