Operating blind!


Have you ever operated blind?
Well that is how we felt last Monday and Tuesday at the Record.

A tribute to Auntie Linda


Editor’s Note: My Aunt Linda passed away August 2nd. Here is the tribute I gave at her funeral.
Linda was an amazing person.
She was a loving wife, a mother, a grandma, a friend, a volunteer and she was short.

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3 (27 in dog years), passed away on July 23, 2007.
While his time on Earth was short in terms of people years and his time with his adopted family even shorter, Ricky quickly won the hearts of all who met him.

Turning the “Big 4 0” three times!


How many times can one turn 40?
The answer would seem to be once... but in my case it seems like there is no end in sight for the number of times I will turn this week.
On Sunday I had one day left to enjoy my decade known as the Thirties. But the day marked not only the end of a decade of my life but the end of a very trying week with one of my dogs.

CSI Rainy River?


Could there be too much CSI on t.v.?
In the rash of break-ins last week it appeared the thieves were very “neat” in their crimes. Were they experienced criminals from outside the community or ones that may have received an education from the popular t.v. series.

Festive times in the area


What a festive weekend.
Friday evening a big barbecue was held at Darlene Armstrong’s to commemorate her recent 65th birthday and her son Jim’s upcoming 40th birthday (July 16 for you calendar watchers).

The National Park camping experience


The great outdoors...
Over the weekend my girl friend and her kids travelled to Chippewa National Forest just east of Cass Lake to do some camping.
I have never camped in a national park before and when I arrived there I was a bit lost.

Show your Canadian pride this week!


Are you proud to be a Canadian?
This week you have an opportunity to both reflect on what being a citizen of this fine country means and to display your patriotism in many ways.
Many communities across the district are holding events on Canada Day. Some are simple like community picnics and others are more complicated with events going from sun up to sun down, followed by spectacular fireworks.

A culturally enriching and beautiful day


Over the weekend I travelled to Winnipeg to attend my cousin Jay’s wedding.
Now I knew this was going to be a very traditional wedding but I was not prepared to experience a wedding that has traditions going back thousands of years.
