Ojibwe language classes keep aboriginal language alive in Winnipeg

For Dawnis Kennedy, learning to speak Ojibwe is about so much more than just learning a language. “I want to be who I was born to be,” said 38-year-old Kennedy, who is of Ojibwe decent. “And without the language how do I understand that and see that?” http://metronews.ca/news/winnipeg/1437588/ojibwe-language-classes-keep-aboriginal-languag...

Help wanted: High school refs and umps

After peaking in 2010-11, the number of registered officials fell each year, with...

The hearing process started Monday. The state authorized TransCanada Corp.'s project in 2010, but permits must be revisited if construction doesn't start within four years. The commission is now considering the company's guarantee that it can complete the project while meeting the conditions of the 2010 approval.

Or how about dropping the bunch in the jungle Naked...
