For the past 17 years, the Trails Tales Tunes Festival has been the unofficial kick-off to the tourism season in Gros Morne National Park, in western Newfoundland. Even during the pandemic, the Norris Point-based festival survived, albeit in a different form. Following a virtual event in 2020, organizers of the festival managed to offer a hybrid event last season, with severely reduced capacity for

CHICAGO (AP) — Gabriel Slonina, the 18-year-old Chicago Fire goalkeeper who's viewed as a potential future standout, will remain with the American national team program and turn down an invitation to join Poland. Slonina announced his decision Friday in a statement. “Being Polish means being extremely hard working, having faith, never taking no for an answer, pushing through hard times, and taking care of your family,” Slonina said. “With that being said, my heart is American.

The Peter Pan restaurant stood at the north end of Charlottetown from 1958 to 2012. It was such a landmark that the corner it sat on is still called by that name. The burger restaurant was torn down in 2013. The original wooden sign went to Holland College for restoration by heritage carpentry students. The fate of the illuminated sign was unknown until recently. Roger Wells, a Summerside real estate agent who collects vintage signs, came across the sign in a vintage picker sale. It was part of

It wasn't easy to establish new recreational programs in Kinngait, Nunavut, especially amid a pandemic. But 24-year-old resident Joanne Weedmark managed it all the same, and her efforts did not go unnoticed. Weedmark found out this week she won the "emerging leader of the year" award from the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association. Each year, the award recognizes one emerging leader 30 years old or younger who has made a significant contribution to the sector. The recipient was announced Mond
Fiona is a beautiful soul who lives on a heavenly farm in Ontario, Canada. She roams freely with acres of lush, green grass to graze on and rolling hills nestled beside a forested area for shade. She drinks from ponds full of fresh water and she enjoys the sunshine and fresh air all day long. She's as happy as a cow can be, living a life that is as close to what nature intended as possible. Fiona has just had her first calf, and she's as perfect as Fiona is. Hope is two days old and she is curious and inquisitive. Dave, a part time farm hand in this meadow has arrived to meet Fiona's baby. He has brought a bag of corn, which is one of Fiona's favorite treats. Hope is nursing away when Dave approaches and Fiona can see that she is about to get a snack. She interrupts the milk session, walking up to Dave. But Hope follows along and checks out what is happening. She can see that her mother is having a good time with her corn but she can't quite understand the appeal. She has a sniff and she tries a little nibble but all she knows is milk and she has little interest in solid food. Fiona is a trusting cow and Hope learned quickly that people will do her no harm. The farmers here are extremely kind to their animals, placing herd health and well-being ahead of profit. The animals on this farm get quality vet care, lots of food, and a life of freedom. The herd wanders safely here with no worry about predators. There is even a gigantic bull named Gus who watches over his ladies protectively. This operation is what is referred to as an ethical farm. The cows live stress free and healthy. The farmers sell beef locally, reducing costs and avoiding shipping the animals from one location to another. Buying food from an ethical source doesn't cost much more and it is well worth the peace of mind knowing that it supports the farmers who are doing things right. Farms like these can be found in most communities.
Members of the local Ukrainian community are fixing up a western Quebec summer camp that fell into disrepair over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, just in time to welcome dozens of children fleeing the war. Around 50 volunteers were on hand at the Outaouais camp Saturday, tidying up the site ahead of the children's camp planned for July.

Just in time for the May long weekend, the Trans-Canada Highway will reopen to traffic through Golden, British Columbia, starting at noon on Friday.

(Reuters) -U.S. authorities were blocked by a federal judge on Friday from lifting COVID-19 restrictions that empower agents at the U.S.-Mexico border to turn back migrants without giving them a chance to seek asylum. The nationwide injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays in Louisiana means the restrictions, which were set to end on May 23, will remain in place across the border as the litigation proceeds, unless a higher court overturns the ruling. The pandemic restrictions, known as Title 42, were put in place in March 2020 during the administration of former Republican President Donald Trump, an immigration hardliner.

LEEDS, Maine (AP) — The ripple effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have been devastating for families of all kinds — including those who have seen their prospective adoptions put on hold. Ukraine was once one of the U.S.’s most frequent partners on international adoptions, but the war changed all that: The embattled country has halted all international adoptions as the country copes with the turmoil unleashed on its courts and social services. Many children, including orphans, have also fled
PYEONGTAEK, South Korea (AP) — President Joe Biden on Friday opened his trip to Asia by touring a South Korean computer chip factory that will be the model for another plant in Texas, offering it as a way to deepen ties with the Indo Pacific and fuel technological innovation and foster vibrant democracies. “So much of the future of the world is going to be written here, in the Indo Pacific, over the next several decades,” Biden said. “This is the moment, in my view, to invest in one another to d
MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans voted Saturday not to endorse anyone for governor ahead of the GOP primary in August, with former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch falling just short of the 60% needed to get the nod — and cash — that comes with winning the party's official backing. It marked the first time delegates have not endorsed a candidate for governor. Many activists, and one of Kleefisch's rivals, had argued for not endorsing anyone, saying it would fracture the party.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The conservative Catholic archbishop of San Francisco said Friday that he will no longer allow U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to receive Communion because of her support for abortion rights.
