He’s cuddly and harmless and rides a Harley!
Sons of Sylvia is composed of three brothers who have backed up Carrie Underwood for years. As The Clark Brothers, Adam, Ashley and Austin won a reality show contest called The Next Great American Band and they’ve broken off on their own now after the name change. They continue to perform with Carrie, too.
Back in 1984 when Komoka resident Hanna Buxbaum was dragged from her car on the 402 and shot to death, it horrified the entire region. I was working at London radio station CKSL at the time and can recall the shock and horror at such a terrible crime against one of the city’s pillar families.
What is and isn’t news? This is the grey-coloured question that pecks at the journalism profession every day.
The other day we discussed the topic of when the holiday season starts. I believe someone I live with may have been telling a particularly holly and jolly TV commercial to go and have an impossible experience with itself to which I replied, once we’ve had the parade, the season is on.
Toronto has this annoying habit of thinking it’s the centre of the universe, or at the very least, the only market that matters in Canada.

How much is enough? There’s no such thing, according to some people. And for today’s randt, those people are named “Jackson”.
Shots were fired in a neighbourhood not far from ours last week. Two houses were struck by bullets and a dark sedan was seen leaving the area.
It may very well be because I don’t have kids that I don’t get into the whole parade thing. If I were taking a child to a parade, well, I’d stake out a prime viewing spot and wait as long as it took to see the fat man in the red suit go gliding past. I …
I thought maybe it was a sick joke but it’s not. I checked it out myself. Amazon.com not only sold a guide for pedophiles, it stood by that offering in the face of rampant criticism.
Rick Mercer has joined an anti-bullying campaign called It Gets Better. It’s aimed at gay kids who are being – let’s call it what it is – tortured at school because they’re different. Some celebrities were inspired to start speaking out after the suicides of gay teens who were bullied.
