This picture was tough to edit but I tried to add a few things. Again, I adjusted the levels and curves. I also used the sharpen tool on some of the faces so that way they stand out a bit more.
I took this photo with my IPhone so I knew the quality wasn’t going to be that great. However, I used Photoshop to make adjustments. I used the curves to brighten the picture and also used the clone stamp to get rid of the puck marks on the glass.
In these pictures, I adjusted with levels and curves. I also adjusted the hue and saturation.
If I had to pick anybody in the world to interview, I would pick George Strait. He’s one of the all time most famous country music artists. With 60 number one hits in his career, he is at the top of the category in his genre.
The reasons why I would want to interview him are many. He is one of my favourite country music artists. He’s continued a career that has lasted 30 years and his music is some of the best that has ever been produced.
By having a music career that has lasted that long, he has had to keep a fan base along with competing with other artists who may appeal more to the younger generation. George recently showed that he is still relevant in the country music scene as he won the “Entertainer of the Year” at the American Country Music awards this past Sunday.
What I would want to ask Strait would be:
-What motivated you to start a country music career?
-Who were some of your early musical inspirations?
-What types of things inspire you to write some of your lyrics?
-How have you adapted to the changing music industry over the years?
-How have you kept pushing on during such a long music career?
Those are just a few of the questions that I would ask him but I do feel that his answers would definitely lead me to ask further questions. I’ve watched many of his interviews and he seems like such a great guy to interview.
Faraday Township’s reeve and council were at the helm of criticism from members of the community during their meeting on September 25.
Bob Smith, a firefighter from Station Two Paudash and resident Orville Ford, made it clear that they were very unhappy with the dismissal of former fire chief Bob Boardman.
Smith, who was supported by a group of firefighters from his station, told reeve Fred Maxwell and council, that the station had no input about Boardman’s performance which was the subject of his firing.
“We liked his leadership,” Boardman stated. “We liked his vision for the future.”
The other issues on the minds of the firefighters from Station Two were the “secret” meetings conducted by council and members of Station 1 just before Boardman was let go.
Smith said that his department wasn’t allowed to be made aware of what was discussed in these meetings. Concerning for Smith was councillor Frank Baker’s role in these meetings as he is also a member of Station 1.
“We feel it is a conflict of interest to have a member of council voting for both sides of the issue, are you a councillor first or a firefighter?” Smith questioned Baker.
What was brought to attention by Smith was the fact that some members of Station 1 were resisting the training program put in place by Boardman. “We need to have our training current and all corresponding administration brought up to date, for everyone, regardless of rank, time of service or role in the department.” Smith told council.
After the concerns were expressed by Smith, Orville Ford addressed council. He said that council has been a “dysfunctional and divided group” as he went onto list all of the issues that has taken place ever since the group was elected.
In regards to the dismissal of Boardman, Ford felt he wasn’t given a fair shot. He also questioned reeve Maxwell’s failure to address the personal attacks the former fire chief faced about the draft burning bylaw. “You have hung this man out as a scapegoat,” Ford exclaimed to the reeve.
At the end of his statement, Ford asked for Maxwell to be “transparent and accountable” and to “show the integrity to resign”.
Maxwell, who has been reeve for seven years, said he has no plans to resign.
