Stuck in the Middle with You

Stuck in the Middle with You

I write these columns, not because I like to preach, or teach, but simply to throw my observations out to you, the reader, for consideration. I don’t expect agreement, and that’s a good thing, because I’ve been called everything from a racist to a fascist to a bleeding-heart liberal to a communist. During COVID times, […]

Home devastated home

Home devastated home

The County is still reeling from the effects of a seemingly unstoppable infestation. And COVID too. As far as the virus is concerned, we are about as clean as you can get in Ontario, with zero new cases since mid-May (but two new cases here this week). We could all pat each other on the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Word on the Street: Black Lives

Word on the Street: Black Lives

Back when Presidents were Presidents, John F. Kennedy said: “If you suppress peaceful revolution, you are guaranteed to have violent revolution.” By the time this appears, the riots in the United States will have lessened in force. This makes no difference in the fight that lies ahead for our southern neighbours. I call them neighbours, […]

Word on the Street: Moving on

Word on the Street: Moving on

I have to admit, the Covid ‘vacation’ has made me reexamine the way we do things, as families and as a community and a society. I’m an observer. I watch and listen and learn about how each of us work, as individuals. Sometimes, when the rum is flowing, someone tells a hilarious but embarrassing story […]
