Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Art, Charity, & Thanks for Paramedics 100919

Hand washing is paramount now that the flu season will be upon us. I read in a few articles that the problem is that we don’t wash our hands long enough. It was suggested that when washing with soap and good warm water to sing the “Happy Birthday” song – two verses and also to […]

Talking Art in Cornwall & It’s Not Too Late For City to Ditch BOM Building Farce. By Jamie Gilcig 072519

Only in Cornwall can the weird get this weird. What we have is a city that historically has not supported the arts. Right now they are paying more to keep a building empty than they gave to keep its former public art gallery open. The city should not be in the art business. They should […]

CFN To Stop Viewer Comments July 31, 2019

CFN To Stop Viewer Comments July 31, 2019

When I started CFN and Seaway Radio it was about views from the public. As I’ve shared publicly many times; nobody, not a single person, moves to Cornwall Ontario because they seek attention. As a long time fan of talk radio and good debate I was hoping to achieve something here, but sadly, while like […]

Seniors Situation Room  by Dawn Ford – Easter, Passover, & CCVS. 042319

This has been a busy week with Christians getting ready to celebrate Easter and our Jewish Friends celebrating Passover. Stores had been stocked for many weeks with Easter eggs and bunnies – all ready for our Easter Bunny to deliver. Exciting morning for kids. I remember years ago when I was teaching Sunday School to […]

Black and white TV and rabbit ears!! Those were the days of great comedy , westerns and other shows , all suitable for family viewing. None of the shows had any vulgarity so all the family could spread the rabbit ears as far as they would go and watch our favourites on TV. I loved […]

Seniors Situation Room  by Dawn Ford – First Dementia Villages in Canada 021919

These snowy days remind me of the winters we had when we were kids. I can’t remember too many days though that the schools were closed unless it was a very big storm. Bet we would have liked that. We walked back and forth to school and attended from 9 to 4pm, going home for […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Optimism About Heart & Stroke Month 020419

The Optimist Creed is very inspiring. I happened to come across a copy of it recently in some papers. We are fortunate in Cornwall to have a local Optimist Club which was chartered in 1948. According to their web site, the late Norm Ross was the chapter President. There were 59 charter members at that […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Ice Cream @Cornwall Square, Art & a Tiger Tale!  012119

We lost the Brookdale Mall some years ago. I loved the Miss Cornwall Restaurant and it was also handy to have a movie theatre in the same mall. Recently we lost the Eastcourt Mall which was another nice mall but, like the Brookdale Mall area, there are still lots of nice stores there which people […]

Senior Situation Room Edition 138 Dawn Ford New Year’s has come and gone and now we are stuck with all our New Year’s resolutions… or not, if you didn’t make any. I only have two: I will try doing some jigsaw puzzles which I have never tried and get back to doing more crossword puzzles. […]

Carol Sauve Confirms She Owns 100% of CAPE as Defamation Suit Heads to Trial by Jamie Gilcig 010319

In life people make mistakes. Smart ones clean them up or mitigate them. For Comic book store owner Randy Sauve his recipe seems to be to pour gasoline on the fire and raise the rhetoric which has resulted in him being sued for defamation. There’s 3 part test for Defam in Canada. If you’ve failed […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – FICTION – Joey the Christmas Elf

One Christmas several years ago, I received a gift of a beautiful Royal Doulton China rose. A little card with this lovely poem was with it: The Legend of the Christmas Rose: Long ago, to Bethlehem, came Kings from far-off lands- Bearing gifts of jewels and gold and myrrh in out-stretched hands. Lowly shepherds, from […]

Sale of Cornwall Square Highlights Bob Peters Failure @ Economic Development by Jamie Gilcig 121218

Cornwall Ontario –   I’d like those of you that read this that actually care about the arts locally to think about this.  Digest it. Taste it like a fine wine please. The City of Cornwall, led by Mayor Bernadette Clement and “her girls” will spend about the same money this year keeping the Bank of […]
