    I am proudly born and raised in The Pas, living until early adulthood on a farm in Carrot Valley. Outside of a few years away for schooling and family reasons I have lived my entire life in the community and, for most of the last 13 years, I have also worked in the newsroom of the Opasquia Times. In total, I have enjoyed eight years as editor of the Opasquia Times and, during that time, have had first-hand views of some of our community’s greatest achievements, and most difficult setbacks. In both situations, though, one common theme constantly emerges; the determination of the residents of The Pas, the R.M. of Kelsey and Opaskwayak Cree Nation to pull together to protect our mutual interests and to strive for a more prosperous tomorrow. Witnessing this spirit is one of the true joys of this job and I look forward to ensuring the Opasquia Times continues to bring to you information on all that is happening in your community as soon as we can. Don’t hesitate to let us know about anything you feel is of interest as well - give me a call, drop me an e-mail or simply stop in to chat. It’s not just my job to hear from you, it’s also my pleasure.
