Stampeders run all over Roughriders

Stampeders run all over Roughriders

Yikes! The Saskatchewan Roughriders' bubble didn't just burst, it exploded Saturday night in Calgary. Henry Burris threw four touchdowns and Joffrey Reynolds ran for another as the Stampeders routed the Riders 40-20 at McMahon Stadium.

Mother Nature demonstrated her might and capriciousness last week, stewing up a freak storm that dumped hail and rain on the Battlefords with harsh fury. The swiftness of the assault was quickly matched by the way city officials sprang into action.

Neighbours can be a nuisance from two provinces away

Ed, my neighbor next door, thought he was free of me for three weeks, but I fooled him. This week I had to e-mail his wife Ruby to pass a message on to Ed. Ruby is a veteran of computer use, but Ed refuses to have anything to do with it.

Shoreline cleanup a worthy endeavour

Litter seems to be a North American constant that we seem powerless to eradicate. I am often appalled at how the area around the Royal Bank Tower in North Battleford looks when a stiff prairie wind arrives to stir things up.

Picking berries, finding good

I headed for the raspberry patch early Sunday morning - nothing like fresh berries on whole grain cereal.
Respect for flood water a healthy stance

Respect for flood water a healthy stance

This month I watched an event transpire through press releases on my BlackBerry that I was not present at, yet I could visualize clearly. That's because I had seen it before. July 12, the first e-mail from RCMP media relations came in.
