For years now, I've been providing services quietly out of my home office in a spare bedroom of our home in Carlyle, Saskatchewan. It has been a good run, and I've enjoyed the work. Now, with the MBA almost (please let me get it done on time) finished, I've made the radical leap to move my business to a great space on Carlyle Main Street. Why now? It is a business based on community services, and it needs a spot in the community. And, this is a great space. The vision is this...bright... More...

This past weekend, Carlyle had an event that was created by volunteers, funded by donation and provided at no cost to the community. Wowzers. It was a gift that showcased the good things about living in a small town. Add in some food trucks, some live music, and a main street beer gardens, and you have such a great pay off. Lets think about this for a minute, people who didn't have to, gave up their time and their resources to give the community a great time. Gratitude should be a given.... More...

It can be done. There are economical reasons why it should be done. There are lots of ways other communities are doing it. But, and its a big but (see what I did there?) a community cannot be saved if there is no "community" to rebuild. Community starts with the people who live there. Here are some things I've observed, learned, been taught and paid attention to: 1. It takes good people on Council who are willing to make changes. Being on Council is a tough, tough job, when you do it right.... More...

In 1926, in Manor, Council recorded in their minutes a tax exemption for back taxes and further taxes exempted for a Mrs. (name withheld) because the house in question was being run as a 'maternity home' also known as a home for unwed mothers. The tax exemption was to apply "for as long a time as she continues on as a maternity home." Thus, off I go, down the rabbit hole. Let me explain. The purpose of my research is to compare these two communities and figure out why today one community... More...

I am writing my ARP (Applied Research Paper) for my MBA in Community Economic Development (CED). I've been working towards this final assignment for 4 years--and I am having a blast. As part of my research, I am reviewing Council Minutes in both Carlyle and Manor, beginning my comparison in 1925--the first year for which there are comparable records. It is my hope that by learning about the impacts historical decision making--with the benefit of hindsight--I can learn what practices work to... More...
