Foreign workers glitch threatens Music at Port Milford

Foreign workers glitch threatens Music at Port Milford

Recently, in a story “Port Milford Summer Music Camp wrapping up 28th year”, author Jack Evans pointed out the economic and tourism benefits and the musical reputation this internationally known program has brought to Prince Edward County. Its balance of high level Canadian and American artists has brought students (and their families) from Canada, the [...]

Pardon me if I appear rather glum in this shot. This summer's invasion of the rug rats has depleted my energy and left me more than a little depressed. With approximately 150 kittens swelling our ranks there is good reason for my shattered nerves. My catnaps are constantly interrupted and it has been impossible for me to hostess a meeting of our book club this month. With so much caterwauling I cannot hear myself think - Liza

With addition of 150 kittens, shelter is bursting at the seams

Our world is a little darker without Robin Williams

Our world is a little darker without Robin Williams

Before I write about Robin Williams, I need to share some background with you. For 25 years I worked with youth in crisis and then survivors of abuse. I saw first-hand  the carnage and havoc suicide causes in the lives of people who at tempt, and their families. The devastation. A few years ago I [...]

The County’s last stand

By launching the concept of Separation, I have been called ‘delusional’. Maybe so but, despite the obvious satirical bent of my columns, I hope that other voices will join in, to save the County we love so dearly. Lots of people say: “Hey, I’m with you,” because they see the same Eve of Destruction of [...]

Sun has set on Planet of Apes franchise

Sun has set on Planet of Apes franchise

  At the start of this summers movie season if you had told me that every single blockbuster was going to be a mega bust I would have told you you were crazy and maybe even suggested your parents were total strangers when you were conceived. At least you weren’t crazy. It’s been a hugely [...]

Standing on our own … and growing!

Some people think that I am like Chicken Little, always shouting that the sky is falling. But to me it’s more like the ‘canary in the cage’ in the mineshaft. As the province steamrolls over property and individual rights, as well as wildlife and the remaining remnants of nature, the canary is indeed dying. And [...]

It’s never too late to support community

I had the pleasure of attending a fundraising concert at the beautiful historic Picton United Church last week, held by local musicians and entertainers to help defray legal costs of the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists as they proceed to the Appeal Court of Ontario. Their very worthwhile goal is to keep Prince Edward County’s [...]

How Separation Can Work

At least one of my readers has a fixation with ‘Purpose’ and ‘Principles’ when launching a project as big as the creation of the Province of Prince Edward County. Our purpose is simple: To return decision-making power to the people of the County concerning their current operations and future. Our principles should be incorruptible: We [...]

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

I’ve seen the first really good film of the summer. The Fault In Our Stars is a hugely successful book written by John Green and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber. I don’t know Green’s work, but Neustadter and Weber wrote 500 Days of Summer which is a little gem [...]
