Feature Pet – ZORRO

Feature Pet – ZORRO:  My name is Zorro and I am 1.5yrs old. I may only weigh 75lbs but I am a lab/pitbull mix and have the strength of a large human. I am very friendly and lovable but am in desperate need of training and obedience classes. I will not do well with other dogs or children at this time because I am still working on my manners. I will do best with an experienced dog handler who can love me back and be patient. For more information on me, contact the Nova Scotia SPCA, Kings County Branch,1285 County…

Mona Parsons Commemoration

A campaign has begun to commemorate Wolfville’s unlikely war heroine Mona Parsons.  “This project isn’t just about remembering the contributions of a community member,” says Andria Hill-Lehr, who wrote Parsons’ biography. “There are many who deserve that. This is about honouring the memory of a woman who, though she never wore a uniform or carried a gun, was willing to put her life on the line when she found herself in war zone and seized upon the only thing she could do to support the Allies in their fight against Hitler.” “The contributions of women to Canada’s historical narrative have…

LIDDLE AT THE WHITTLE!

In case you haven’t heard yet, a really big deal is going to happen here in Wolfville on June 14! Expect to see our town invaded by coin belts & a trail of glitter as belly dancers from all over the Atlantic provinces gather for a weekend of workshops & a show. I fell in love with tribal belly dance over 10 years ago after visiting San Francisco. And then, not long after, I saw the Belly Dance Superstars (a large troupe of dancers created by Miles Copeland, former manager of ‘The Police’) in Vancouver & was immediately entranced by…

For the Health of it: Eat Your Weeds

Seasonal health secrets of Chinese medicine, shared by Devorah Fallows R.Ac., Wolfville “They’re quite tasty—honest.” My patient’s left eyebrow raised slowly of its own accord as she looked at me quizzically. “Eat your weeds! It’s that simple,” I explained. A conspiratorial grin crept across her face as she stood watching me in my crisp white doctor’s coat, giving my prescription: “Fresh young dandelion and nettle leaves: add them to everything. Use them just like you would use spinach.” Up and down the Valley there is an explosion of colour: rows of flowering fruit trees and grapevines, alternating with rows of…
