At the first Dark Sky Festival – then called a Star Party – in 2012, Bruce Buckley looks over one of his telescopes at Pine Lake, about 60 km south of Fort Smith in Wood Buffalo National Park.

The dark sky's the limit
This year's third-annual Thebacha & Wood Buffalo Dark Sky Festival is promising to be the biggest and best. "It's definitely a conscious effort. We want to grow this event every year," said Tim Gauthier, a communications officer with Wood Buffalo National Park. The festival is being presented from Aug. 21 to 24 by the park and the Thebacha and Wood Buffalo Astronomical Society.

Bill Prodromidis, who was elected as mayor of Fort McPherson in January of this year, speaks on the phone with MACA deputy minister Tom Williams while Williams was on the community radio July 23 to address community questions on why the GNWT recently dissolved the hamlet's government. Ultimately, Prodromidis' questions were not put on the air.

Fort McPherson hamlet government fired
The hamlet government of Fort McPherson ceased to exist late last week, after Department of Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) officials exercised the department's authority to dissolve the community government. The reason for the drastic move is that the hamlet has about $2 million in debt, and MACA came to the decision that a deficit reduction plan was unlikely to be approved and implemented with the mayor and councillors.

Mackenzie McDonald, left, of Inuvik and Darius Andre of Tsiigehtchic are all smiles after winning the U14 mixed doubles 3,000 metre canoe event at the North American Indigenous Games in Regina on July 21.

Medals galore in Regina
When the rosters for Team NWT were being set for the 2014 North American Indigenous Games in Regina, chances are Darius Andre of Tsiigehtchic wasn't the first name that popped out. After his performances in canoe/kayak, there's a very good chance he won't be forgotten in the future.

North Wright Airways is facing significant and unexpected airport rent increases in Norman Wells. Company owner Warren Wright hopes not all NWT operations will face the same cost increases, which he said will inevitably have to be passed on to community residents who rely on the company's services.

GNWT lease hikes hit regional carrier
NWT NEWS/NORTH - Already expensive regional air travel between NWT communities may become more expensive soon. North Wright Airway’s leases in Norman Wells for terminal space have almost doubled following property value reassessments of airport terminal space recently completed by the territorial government.
