I had a wonderful 91 birthday; great visits

August 24 was a special day for me. One thing it was my 91 year.

Show offs never prosper and I know that first hand

Horses have been in my life ever since I was a very young child.

Church in the park was a wonderful even with the heat

Here we go again with another week coming up. Seems the older I get the faster the weeks seem to come along.

It’s been a wonderful summer with family

We sure seem to get our share of electrical storms. Then rain in some places and very dry in other

Is any of our local hay going to China? Give me a call

I have just come home from a very pleasant opening service at St. Luke’s on the lake church.

Post offices use to be the centre of everything

I have at hand the last Lakes District News and on the front page there was something that no doubt will rattle a few cages.

Black flies are something fierce this year

Another week has come around, the older I get the faster they come, or it seems that way.

Such a nice park ‘Sprirt Square’ the name really fits

Lots of campers and trailers and lots of boats and they are top of the line, lots of money there.

I love going to the lake for a visit

I have just been watching the weather news and I feel so fortunate to live where we do.

I had such a great Father’s day at the lake

This morning I decided to bite the bullet and do something with last year’s Christmas cards.

Such very sad news for our community

What a shock it was last week for us all with the drowning in Francois Lake.

There is nothing nicer then a fresh char

Sorry to miss out my news last week but the holiday weekend kind of mixed me up a bit.

Looking back in the day with Barney Mulvaney

I have at hand a record of some of the old history written by Barney Mulvaney, the founder and once owner of Burns Lake.

Remembering forest fires of long-ago

Here we go starting out another week and it’s such lovely day, makes a person feel glad to be alive.

How times have changed in the Lakes District

It sure looks like it’s going to be late spring. Next week will be May and as the old saying goes ‘April showers bring May flowers.’

The ice is off Francois Lake and birds are returning

Another week has just about gone by so it’s time for my viewpoint news to get out once more.

Where did the name Francois Lake come from?

We all seem to be looking forward for spring to come. Still lots of snow but it is going.

Ground breaking ceremony is good news for us

There is an old saying that says it never rains but it pours and this is the way it has hit the Van Tine family and big time.
