Storm Watch: Prairie Dog HQ

Here’s the view out our window as of 4:o5 p.m., complete with streaks of crap on the glass and reflections of our office lights. I don’t have to tell any Regina readers that it’s rumbling right now but there’s no rain here yet. We’ve heard a report that a tornado’s been spotted in Rollo Rouleau, however.

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.

Prairie Dog editor Stephen Whitworth was carried to Regina in a swarm of bees. He's been with Prairie Dog since May 1999 and will die at his keyboard before admitting this was all a terrible, terrible mistake.

  1. Thanks Barb! Gonna have to have a word with the Intern who types my blog posts for me while I sip scotch and dictate.

  2. As much as I hate to correct Barb, Rouleau is likely best known worldwide as the inspiration for Chuck Berry’s 1956 hit, “Rouleau’ver Beethoven”.

  3. @Mike: you’re misspelling your own name. Tsk.

    @Barb: any recommendations? I like Highland Park 18 year but it’s kinda pricey. Been meaning to pick up a bottle of Glenfarclas. Anyone like that one?

  4. My husband’s the scotch maven around here, so from hearsay, because I don’t care for the stuff: The Glenlivet, The Six Isles, and of course Dalwhinnie.
