    I love this, my hope is more join in and post their dates for activities.. great, now things like golf tournaments will see who is having what on what date, and we can plan our weekend accordingly

  • Karina says:

    Thanks for the positive feedback Donna! That is my intent, that this might help us {Northshore residents} attend each other’s events more often. Hoping that Townships, EDCs and businesses will see http://www.OntarioNewsNorth.com as an opportunity to reach a regional audience.

    Hi Karina,
    Great site!
    Just discovered your site through a link with Superior North CFDC. Ron has just added our Festival.
    Wondering if we could use your excellent site as a way to promote not only our site, but the Festival?
    It’s on May 15 and 16, in Dorion.

    Hi Karina,
    I don’t seem to be able to add to the calendar…and how do I remove the sidebar (right) that covers the Saturday row?

  • Karina says:

    Hi Susan,

    I’ve removed the sidebars from this page and feel it looks alot better (welcome your opinion). You should be able to click on the “Google Calendar” Icon, bottom left corner of the calendar, I did already add the Dorion Bird Fest though you should be able to edit if I didn’t put enough details.

    Thanks for your continued contributions! K.

    Ok everyone, so unfortunately I spent some time in the wee hours of the morning trying to find and install a better calendar than this but unfortunately this seems to be the one with the best ‘look’. I will add this info to the top of the page a.s.a.p. but for now here’s the deal…

    To be able to post events you need to be approved, those of you who posted here I added your emails to the calendar account so you are approved, any others wanting to post please send me an email, it takes just a second and I will add you (Editor@OntarioNewsNorth.com). I think you may also have to have a google account but I thought this was acceptable as the majority of ppl do and those who don’t may realize this is just one of many services available with the account (it’s free).

    Another great feature, if you use Outlook as your email editor you can Sync with the calendar to get updates and notifications (fully customizable) when events you are interested in appear.

    I’m going to let everyone try this out for another week and if feedback is not positive, events are not being posted I will see what I can find as another calendar option.

    Thanks for all your feedback! K.

    Just discovered your site by Googling “Greenstone”, and came across OPP news item. Site is a great idea! Any plans to take in Greenstone on a regular basis?

  • Karina says:

    Hi Edgar, thanks for reading! Yes, actually hoping to include Greenstone by 2012… If you know of any freelancers in your area however I’d definetly consider carrying more of Greenstone sooner.

    Finding the writers has been the challenge with covering the shore consistently.

    I do publish most Greenstone OPP news that comes through but for now it goes through the main headlines without it’s own column like the other towns have. You can click on the law enforcement button from the home page to browse those faster.

  • Gail Lewis says:

    Hi Karina: I read your instructions above but I can’t seem to be able to click and add to the Calendar. Would you please email me directions so I can figure out what I’m doing wrong. Also is there any way to automatically post it for the 3rd. Tues of each month.

    The “Manitouwadge Diabetes Support Group” will be holding meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of Each Month starting Tuesday January 18th, 2011 at 7:00 pm in the Judy Harris Room – Manitouwadge General Hospital. Please contact: Gail Lewis (807)826-4332 for Information. All Pre diabetics, diabetics, Family & Friends Welcome.
    Thanks gor your help.

  • Karina says:

    Hi Gail, I need to add your email address to the safe list (will do that tonight) and then you just need to click on the ‘google calendar’ icon in the bottom corner.

    Where can I access the live stream of the OFSAA November 24 senior boys volleyball game?

    Thank you

  • Maggie Pearce says:

    I would like to introduce you to Jamie McDonald on Twiiter and Facebook. Jamie is running across Canada for SickKids Hospital and is now in your area. He left Wawa this morning and will reach White River sometime Wednesday. You can’t miss Jamie, he is in a bright red Flash outfit and pushing a stroller. Please give Jamie your support and maybe even get out and run with him. Go meet Jamie, you will be glad you did!

    • admin says:

      .Thanks for your comment but there’s already been a great story published about Jamie on OntarioNewsNorth.com last week, announcing when he left Sault Ste. Marie that he was on his way West through the Northshore… you can read it (and see all the photos plus links to his site and all his social utilities at: http://www.OntarioNewsNorth.com/?p=51251

      If you are wondering if a story has already been published about any topic, please use the search bar in the header (top portion of the site which appears the same on every page) to find it. (most times a general term or just a last name is best to use as if you are too specific what you are looking for may not come up).

      Thanks again for your message. Please remember you can always submit news by emailing Editor@OntarioNewsNorth.com (use subject line: News Tip) or calling (807) 826-4745 Have a great day! Karina

  • Denise Atkinson says:

    Great idea for promoting events in the Northshore communities! I now live in Thunder Bay but still like to know what events are happening around the area that I would be interested in attending. I like that the calendar is updated daily so that new events are always appearing.

  • Chennai says:

    I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this web site on regular basis to take updated from latest news.|
