Profile: Kelsea McLean

by Jane Ledwell

Students at Morell High School where choral leader Kelsea McLean is music teacher say she sings when she teaches. She admits she’s been accused of being “singsongy.” “I don’t think I’m a ray of sunshine,” she says, “or even all that optimistic—it’s just the delivery!” She laughs, melodically.

“I know all the kids in the school,” she says, “even if they aren’t

Why Anything?

Why Anything?

Talking Bands
by James Evan Ceretti

Alex MacLeod and Andrew MacInnis share at least one coming-of-age musical tale. Both of their mothers weren’t too pleased after hearing their sons listening to the music and shenanigans of Blink-182. Well, MacLeod and MacInnis weren’t to be swayed.

Why Anything? is Charlottetown’s newest pop-punk band, with MacLeod fronting the band on guitar and vocals,

A few years ago, I stopped in early one morning and found Norman about to have his breakfast. Here’s what was on the plate:

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague 

Foodies are often the first to benefit from an influx of immigrants in a given jurisdiction. As the number of immigrants in a given area increases so does the number of restaurants, and the variety of food choices available. It’s happening right now in downtown Charlottetown. Off the top of my head I can think of seven new restaurants that have opened in

How I learned to cook: Maxine Delaney

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Chef, restaurant owner, caterer, creative culinary spirit, Maxine Delaney’s name is associated on PEI with wonderful food.

“I grew up on a farm in Alberta. My dad had a lot of heavy equipment and he got a contract to clear some bush up north. He took a crew up and I decided to go along. When we first got there, the camp cook went into town for supplies and just never came
