Let’s all get really angry

Let’s all get really angry

Ordinarily, in a pre-COVID world, we all had issues of concern, and we tended to express them to our social group, and sometimes in Letters to the Editor, or often to countylive.ca, where you can anonymously vent any concern, such as how your neighbour’s dog doesn’t understand the boundaries of human-defined property lines. We have […]

The Tourism Monster is back

The Tourism Monster is back

For a change, since I was recently barbecued for trying to support equality in our society, I thought would try something that I’m sure all of us agree on: Big-time tourism is back, and we don’t really like it. Sure, in the Old Days of 2019, I think most of us came to the realization […]

PECI student receives two Kiwanis scholorships

CHEERS!, from the Kiwanis Club of Picton, to Prince Edward Collegiate Institute (PECI) graduate Amber Peeling, who was the recipient of two Kiwanis scholarships in the amount of $500 last week, as the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions cancelled the graduation ceremony in June. The scholarships presented were the Chris Lockyer Memorial Award and the Kiwanis Communications […]

Stop complaining ... fix it

Stop complaining … fix it

Like most of us, I am still fixated on Where We Go From Here. Our world has shattered, and in more ways than we anticipated. George Floyd, on top of COVID-19, on top of finding out how Long Term care facilities failed the grade, and a sudden focus on long term abuse of native Canadians […]

Look back and see.... Nothing

Look back and see…. Nothing

What happens if you look back on history, and there’s nothing there? What happens if we have cleansed our history so well, there’s not a wart or a wood tick to be found? The answer is obvious, we can all relax in our sheltered world, in which nothing bad ever happened, and sit in the […]

Word on the Street: Buried in our own words

Word on the Street: Buried in our own words

There was a time in Canada when we were happy to be just Canadians. That is to say: “Here we are in Canada. How you doin’?” By the way, the proper answer to this is, “Good. And you?” Not, “Oh, man, I have been having some real trouble with bladder leakage and incontinence, and it […]

Canada's first prime minister to go on trial in Picton

Canada’s first prime minister to go on trial in Picton

OPINION – By David Warrick As the ‘cancel culture’ gains momemtum, Canadians are finding truth not in fact, but in protest. Is it time to remove statues of  Tommy Douglas leader of the NDP who also held racist views? Tommy Douglas was voted the “greatest Canadian of all time” as part of a 2004 CBC […]

The Class of 2020: success in the face of adversity

The Class of 2020: success in the face of adversity

To the Class of 2020: Congratulations on graduating from Grade 12, a tremendous accomplishment for each of you! Learning requires that we find meaning in all we do—in the successes, the challenges and the struggles—and then grow from them. As a graduating class, you have lived through times that no graduating class in a generation […]

Word on the Street: Change is in the air

Word on the Street: Change is in the air

When the world stopped turning a couple of months ago, everybody hunkered down. It’s amazing how quickly people read the rules, and responded to curb the spread of COVID-19. At first this was The Great Inconvenience, but we soon learned we were going to be in this for the long haul. Here in the County, […]

Virtual tribute to PECI’s athletes in the year of COVID

Outstanding athletes at Prince Edward College Institute are being honoured virtually this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and rules limiting gatherings, the annual celebration at the Regent Theatre was not an option, moving accolades for individual and team sports online and in local media. “Our 2019-2020 student athletes are an outstanding group,” said Laurie […]
