Harvey Dorval

Here’s to you, Mr. Marconi

Radio is a medium that brings with it fond memories of days gone by

The patronage plum

I could make it all up and nobody would be any wiser

The curmudgeon and the bird’s nest

Not everything has to be kept as neat as a pin all the time

What gets my water hot?

It's time for that tiresome ritual: the Olympic Games

Time softens our memories

Even memories of the Great Depression can be fond ones

Getting the hang of recycling

Harvey Dorval had a slow start, but he's become a firm recycling believer

Contribution to our culture

Loss of print-edition encyclopedia means our culture will be lessened

Once, twice, three times a downsizer

If you truly love something, keep it. If not, throw it out, out, out

My Country is Winter, so let’s brave the elements

We can't get away from winter, so let's get out there and enjoy it

Are we lemmings following the leader to the poor house

Dog fights and bull baiting were once popular, too, but they were eventually outlawed

What if computers take over the doctor’s office?

I don't look forward to the day when real doctors are a thing of the past

Steady as she goes, Captain. QB is on the right course

There's no need for dramatic change in Qualicum Beach

Spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as autumn

There was a time when I thought of this month as a golden time but that was then and this is now.

We all remember those first jobs of summertime youth

Just about now, thousands of young people will be looking at the end of their summer jobs, some with relief and some with regret.

After 20 years over here, I’m now one of the sights

I can’t understand how some of us retain our youthful vigor and appearance yet others don’t.

The rebuilding of the political party brands

Now that the election is over, watch the fun

In politics, what you see is not always what you get

Federal election a fascinating study

Something is wrong when activities are just not fun

Children just need time and space

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown

Harvey Dorval gives a thumbs up to people who stand up for themselves
