A Small Bit Of Good News On A Bad Weekend

UPDATE! Pretty photograph added!

In Regina, where we don’t adjust our clocks (which I think is charming, by the way), it’s a beautiful, balmy-by-winter standards minus-2 degrees outside. Better yet, tonight the sun sets at 7:00–we’ve broken the supper-hour barrier. And in one week, at 5:21 p.m., the vernal equinox will arrive. Which means SEVEN MORE SLEEPS TILL SPRING!

You may now return to this weekend’s cavalcade of horrors.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
