Saturday Sessions February 25th Presents

Darren Gusnowsky - This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions Jam presents guest Darren Gusnowsky  - a very respected guitarist, Darren is spoken of as one of the busiest, hardest working guitarists on the country scene. Another musician who is in it “for the long run”, a, guitarist, singer, and tunesmith, he loves the country-honk of the Exile On Mainstreet era Rolling Stones, and the seamless harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young in their prime.

There’s nothing like setting the bar high. So just to add another key element into Darren’s musical personality, he has no problem remembering that it was his mother turning him on to Ricky Skaggs, which convinced him he should pay more attention to hardcore country sounds. In quoting Darren, “Here I am all these years later, winning an award with Stacie and Rob at the CCMA’s, hearing our songs on the radio, and standing side stage at a show we’ve opened for the Kentucky Headhunters and Marty Stuart,” says Gusnowsky, with an “it doesn’t get much better than this”.

A brilliant guitarist frontman who started playing full time on the road in 1993, and went to GMCC in 1997 for two years. He has freelanced for artists, Gord Bamford, Dwayne Steele and others before focusing on Hey Romeo. Darren started writing for a new project with Rob Shapiro and has been doing some freelance work again, playing with recording artist Dan Davidson. Darren also appears plays locally with acts $4 Bill, The Mojave Iguanas, and Stomp N Holler.

PHOTO ENFORCEMENT CONTINUES
IN DORMANT CITY PLAYGROUNDS


Winter has arrived. Frigid temperatures are here, and the children are nowhere to be seen on the abandoned snow-covered soccer field along Forest Drive. In St. Albert this only means one thing. Since no one is around there is a lot more room to park the photo enforcement trucks to enforce this abandoned playground zone with inadequate signs.

The two Ford trucks are out in full force this winter enforcing this dormant playground:
Photo Radar GreyFord1500X1100

  • Dark grey Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5662
Photo Radar White Ford1500
  • White Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5661

Their black GMC SUV and white Jeep are keeping busy in other locations in St. Albert.

Municipal Enforcement shamelessly continues to enforce these abandoned playground zones even though there is no shortage of legitimate locations in which to conduct photo enforcement. Contrary to certain opinion, Photo Enforcement is still an effective tool to curb speeding if used appropriately and fairly. Enforcing playgrounds in the winter is a clear example of inappropriate and unfair.

Jardine Security has been contracted to respond to sightings of Photo Radar vehicles in vacant playground zones this winter. Call Jardine for immediate response to monitor photo enforcement activity. Call
while the photo enforcement vehicles are still there.

Deep In Brazil’s Amazon, Exploring The Ruins Of Ford’s Fantasyland

Deep In Brazil’s Amazon
FORDLÂNDIA, Brazil — The Amazon jungle already swallowed the Winding Brook Golf Course. Floods ravaged the cemetery, leaving behind a stockpile of concrete crosses. The 100-bed hospital designed by the acclaimed Detroit architect Albert Kahn? Plunderers destroyed it.

Given the scale of decay and decrepitude in this town — founded in 1928 by the industrialist Henry Ford in the far reaches of the Amazon River Basin — I didn’t expect to come across the stately, largely well-preserved homes on Palm Avenue. But there they were, thanks to the squatters.

“This street was a looters’ paradise, with thieves taking furniture, doorknobs, anything the Americans left behind,” said Expedito Duarte de Brito, 71, a retired milkman who dwells in one of the homes built for Ford managers in what was planned to be a utopian plantation town. “I thought, ‘Either I occupy this piece of history or it joins the other ruins of Fordlândia.’”

More on Americas.
