At The Shed

At The Shed
Old time country music is alive and well in Slemon Park

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

One of the audience members told me “It’s like sitting in your own kitchen.” It might be difficult to squeeze up to 40 people in your kitchen, but after visiting The Shed recently, I know exactly what she meant.

What began 15 months ago as an afternoon for men to gather for cards and conversation in the community room

Open all night

Reviewby Sean McQuaid

Your semiconscious scribbler slept sparingly this past Easter weekend, thanks in part to the Popalopalots improv comedy troupe.

Spring lamb

Spring lamb
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

Nothing says spring like a lamb. Its little bleat declares: “I’m alive so let’s go!” A Swiss family in the Cove has a whole barn full of sheep, so I thought I’d visit them and get fully charged with a dose of spring lamb.

The Mäders’ new barn has a domed plastic roof and plenty of room inside. Fredy and Elsbeth and son Levi cut trees from their woods, milled
