Greyhounds Season Officially Dashed

The hopes and dreams of about 450 young men have been squashed out by the Ontario government. I thought for sure there would be a season; after all they are playing hockey and sports worldwide, but for some reason Ontario’s government thinks that they know better. All in all it sucks, considering the Toronto Blue Jays are playing in front ...

When Dinosaurs Roamed

Turn back time to 230 million years ago when dinosaurs began roaming the earth. Some only relied on a plant-based diet while others were meat-eaters. For a long period, they ruled the lands beneath their feet, never knowing a different world displayed above their heads we call the cosmos. Imagine how dark the starry sky must have looked back then ...

David Coverdale : ” Ahh yeah, It’s like a Sex Talk Darling”

This is how my conversation with Whitesnake’s David Coverdale started. The call came in and David actually said “Ernest? Is this importance of being earnest?”…as he was obviously referring to the 1895 play by Oscar Wilde. My phone cut out when I gargled back my reply to which the gentle tongued Brit said “where are you on the f**king space ...

Son of a Milkman: My Crazy Life with Tesla by Brian Wheat

No, it’s not a play on words. Brian Wheat was actually conceived by the neighborhood milkman according to the bass player of Tesla and we’ll get closer to Brian in a minute. I have always been a huge fan of Tesla since the Mechanical Resonance album came out in 1986. Not only was it a great guitar riff-driven album, but ...

There Will Be Greyhound Hockey After All

**Opinion Piece represents only the thoughts of the writer and not Wawa News as a company** I don‘t need confirmation from the Hounds Public Relations department, the Ontario Hockey League, Doug Ford, or the Minister of Health for that matter.

Railroaded – Well, Hee Haw!

      A group of self-proclaimed advocates is demanding the government immediately restore Ontario Northland Railway (ONR) passenger service, have that publicly-funded agency buy CN’s Algoma Central line from Sault Ste. Marie to Hearst, restore the passenger train on that line and push a private freight operator off the Sudbury-Soo line.  These grand pronouncements are in their submission to ...

Railroaded – Strange Bedfellows

Vic Fedeli has dug himself into a pit with endless promises to restore Ontario Northland Railway (ONR) passenger service “before the next election.”  He’s now appealing for help from Liberal Speaker of the House of Commons Anthony Rota.  Politics, passenger trains, and ill-advised promises make strange bedfellows.   The good news is MP Anthony Rota has offered to assist the ...

Railroaded – Nose Stretchers?

Frank magazine employed an effective and evocative word when reporting on dubious political statements back in its heyday:  nose stretchers.   What’s a nose stretcher?  Think of Pinocchio when he told tall tales.  Think of actor Leslie Nielsen in the movie, Airplane, whose proboscis grew each time he uttered soothing words to calm the frightened passengers without regard for the ...
