The Gardener radio show moves to CJNU 93.7 FM April 2


he host of popular radio show The Gar- dener, Dorothy Dobbie, has decided to move her program to CJNU 93.7 FM,

Nostalgia Radio, Winnipeg’s community radio station. The transition will take place the first Sunday in April. “I have loved being at CJOB these many years,” Dorothy said, “but as a member of the CJNU board of di- rectors, I have felt conflicted about broadcasting for another station for some time. Now CJNU is growing very rapidly and I feel the obligation to help it grow even more.” Doro- thy has broadcast The Gardener on CJOB since 2001, where it grew to become the number one show on weekend radio in Winnipeg.

small twist: each weekly guest will be asked to choose four songs from the CJNU library, af- fording listeners a glimpse into another facet of the guest’s personality. CJNU has an extensive library of music covering the last 100 years in radio.

u 4 'Broadcasting' Deer Lodge set to study chronic

care patients and their needs “It’s a population that isn’t understood yet,” says Deer Lodge Centre’s chief nursing officer. “We want to really define chronic care, find out what resources are available to our patients and determine the gaps we need to fill.”

s Deer Lodge Centre wraps up its 100th anniversary year, the Manitoba geriatric healthcare and research facil- ity is looking ahead to the future of chronic care.


“Most people associate Deer Lodge with veteran and senior care,” says Daryl Dyck, clinical nurse specialist at the centre. “Fully a third of our facility is dedicated to people of all ages who need to live in a supported envi- ronment.”

Deer Lodge currently provides 120 long-

term, chronic care beds spread out across three floors to people living with conditions that can’t be managed outside an institution, including ALS, advanced respiratory disease, renal failure, neurological injuries or disor- ders, and complex wounds. “We often see patients coming in with several conditions at once,” says Dyck.

Many chronic care patients are in their se- nior years, but some are much younger. “To- day, we have a young man in his early 30s living in chronic care who has Duchenne’s u 4 'Deer Lodge'

The Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Normandy, France. V

imy Ridge is an escarpment near the town of Arras in northeastern France. The ridge rises gently on its western side, and drops more rapidly on the east. It is about seven kilometres wide, and peaks at a height of about 60 metres above the Douai Plains, offering a view far into the distance in all directions. A great lookout for troops in wartime, Vimy would be the target of a mission which saw Canada’s four Europe-based divisions, in their first battle together of the First World War, jointly serving as the major combatants against the Germans. Their assigned mission was to seize the strategic high point of Vimy Ridge as part of a diversionary assault by Britain across the broader Arras region, driving out Ger- man Sixth Army troops entrenched there. Under the com- mand of Britain’s Sir Julian Byng, a force of 170,000 troops (97,000 of them Canadian) was part of a massive offensive focussed on breaking the long, deadly stalemate that had settled in across the war zone.

The attack occurred from April 9 to April 12, 1917. More than 10,500 Canadians were killed and wounded in those few days.
