Got a message from my old boss at CJDC TV News. He said I had won the ‘Best Television Personality’ award in the Dawson Creek Daily News 2011 People’s Choice Awards. That is kind of cool, hey?

Young people organize for a new skateboard park

Some really inspiring young people in Fort St. John decided there was a need for a new skateboard/BMX park in the city. Rather than just complain about the situation, they organized, put up a Facebook page for their cause and even made a presentation to city council at Monday’s meeting. The city seems quite supportive of the idea.

From the archives: a story of incredible loss and how a family faced it

This is one of the first stories I wrote while in journalism school. I had taken a photograph of an unusual headstone from a Calgary cemetery and when my dad recognized the name the story just kind of took off from there. In the process I learned of an enormous archival undertaking called the Alberta Heritage Digitization Project which puts online old newspapers and other media from around the province dating back to 1885. After many hours of searching I found an article that referred to an incident in the story from 1982 so there is a link to it in the web version. There is even a Dawson Creek connection.

Here is the online version and a PDF from the print edition.

The Barbed Wire Solution

An exhibit opened recently at the museum in Fort St. John that outlines a period of Canadian history that I was, until now, sketchy on. Here is some background on the exhibit.
