Enjoy Every Sandwich
Well after 12 years and countless events, hockey games and seeing the lives of the people of Melfort the time has come to move on. I recently accepted a position as the new regional civic affairs reporter at the Prince Albert Daily Herald and the February 21 issue marks the last time you will see my work in the Journal.
Wall's Sask-Alta pension plan idea worth cautious consideration
Most anything former premier Brad Wall does these days is viewed with some suspicion. His recent promotion of a Buffalo Pension Plan (BPP) — an Alberta/Saskatchewan pension plan that could replace the Canada Pension Plan out west — is certainly no exception.
Sask. politicians survived their obnoxious videos, but Trudeau may not
An event in this province demonstrated that even politicians of the highest rank can survive their own massive bozo eruptions — one that was, arguably, worse than the man-child behaviour we’ve just witnessed from Justin Trudeau in those images from his past.
Trial shows how the system fails
A combination of frustration and empathy is what led David Petersen, accused of threatening to shoot Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and blow up Parliament, into a legal mess he has no control over and which is so involved with following protocol and legal principles not explicable to the common citizen, that it would bring any average person to the brink.
Melfort Exhibition is something special
There are some things that we can look forward to every year in Melfort and the Melfort Exhibition has become one of those things. With exhibitions as a whole on the decline in Saskatchewan to have a fair like this continue after all it has been going for over 110 years.
MUCC Class of 2019 Valedictorian address
Good morning staff, parents, guests, friends, and most importantly, my fellow classmates. I am deeply honoured to be standing on this stage in front of you all, representing this amazing group of individuals. Today marks a day that we have been looking forward to for an entire year, and some of us have been anticipating since we got here in grade 7. Today is the day that we, as questionably qualified ‘adults,’ go out into the world and blaze our own trails. It’s a pretty big step to take, considering the fact that we’ve had up to six years in this place and some of us are still having to find ways to adjust. It’s going to be difficult at times, but the biggest thing we have going for us is that we’ve had the guidance of some incredible people along the way. So, first and foremost, to all the teachers, coaches, parents, and guardians that have been there for us when we needed it most, we are forever grateful. Personally, I’d like to thank my Dad for making my sandwiches for school almost every day since Kindergarten, and my Mom for checking my hair every morning, and making sure I get pictures at every awards night, band concert, drama production, and first day of school. Even though they’re both more popular with this group of kids than I’ll ever be and a part of me kind of detest them for that, I couldn’t have made it up here without them. Love you guys. I also have to give a shoutout to my two sisters Emily and Sadie, who gave me a ‘high school survival guide’ in grade 7 and drew me a map of MUCC back when I was too stupid to realize the hallways were essentially just a big square. So, to all those mentioned before, on behalf of our graduating class, we thank you for putting up with us for all these years, and we hope we’ve made you proud, at least once or twice.
