Horse trainer Travis Umphrey, who owns many horses and employs several people has decided to move his operation to Ontario which he says is much more friendly to harness racing than Alberta right now. Here is poses with “Trisha’s Beauty” in a stable at Northlands on November 21, 2008.  Photo by Ryan Jackson/Edmonton Journal

Darryl Cutting and his partner Melinda Smith (not shown) run a mid-sized stable at Northlands. Their operation is too small to afford to pack up and move to Ontario. If Harness racing in Alberta dies, so will their livelihood. Here Cutting is pictured in his stable at Northlands on November 14, 2008.    Photo by Ryan Jackson/Edmonton Journal

Poor duck!

Posted by ryanjackson on Nov 1, 2008 in photos

A duck swims through an oily substance along the shore of the North Saskatchewan river beside Hawrelak Park on Saturday November 1, 2008. Alberta Environment has reported that an outfall storm drain downstream from Terwillegar Park was the source of the substance which has not been determined yet. A citizen called Alberta environment around 9:00 A.M. on Saturday morning. The source was contained by the afternoon however the substance, which had a strong odor similar to diesel fuel, was still visible in the river near Hawrelak Park around 6:00 P.M.  Photo by Ryan Jackson/Edmonton Journal
