Turn of the Wheel

by Jane Ledwell

When my siblings and I were just kids, one thing we always looked forward to was watching the odometer on my parents' car shift from, say, 199,999 to 200,000. We sometimes would make a special trip when that magic, uneven shift of gears was about to mark car's next milestone. We'd all lean our little heads into the front seat for a good five miles, watching the zeroes roll into

Like No Business I Know

by Sean McQuaid

Folks say Prince Edward Island's number one product is potatoes, but sometimes I'm not so sure. Maybe it's more of a meat-and-potatoes mix, since the province is awash in hams-of the incurable thespian variety, that is. Theatrically inclined people seem about as common here as our red clay, and their yield is every bit as rich. So as we ring the curtain down on the old millennium,

The Amazing Kreskin

The world's most famous mentalist communicates with The Buzz

by Treva McNally

Who is Kreskin? If you live in a small Canadian city and don't watch talk shows, you might be forgiven for thinking that Kreskin used to be a minor celebrity who had a TV show that ran in the 70s.

Millennial Hoopla

The owner of Charlottetown's City Cinema shares his insights

by Derek Martin

While I'm more than happy to have made it to the odometer rollover that is New Year's 2000, I think I share the feeling of a lot of people that it is not as significant as media and advertisers would have us believe. History as taught in high school would be a lot easier if important events stuck to round numbered years,

There's No Time like the Present

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

The new millennium has finally arrived and the world hasn't changed dramatically, contrary to the ominous predictions of many soothsayers, naysayers, and others prone to predict doom and gloom. We've all survived splendidly, and the world shall continue to revolve around the sun. I'm not one to gaze into crystal balls or read tea leaves-I only have one eye that works
