homefinders: Edmonton and the McKernan Area - 04/19/11 10:50 PM
Robert & John McKernan (10324 Whyte Avenue & 10337 Whyte Avenue) Robert McKernan was the brother of James McKernan, one of the original members of the North West Mounted Police who came west with the troop on their historic ride in 1874. Robert joined his brother the following year and he and wife Sara settled in 1881 at what is now known as the McKernan community, near 112th Street and 76th Avenue. McKernan built the Dominion Hotel in 1903 with profits from his farming ventures. With at least 33 bedrooms, several public parlours, a dining room and a beer parlour, the (0 comments)
homefinders: History of Strathcona Edmonton - 04/19/11 10:45 PM
The First Steps of Strathcona Strathcona took its first steps over 117 years ago when the Calgary and Edmonton Railway Company completed its line from the Canadian Pacific Railway line in Calgary to a terminus south of the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Despite pressure to cross the river and end the line at Edmonton, the company wanted to monopolize the benefits of future land sales and so created a new settlement they called South Edmonton. With it they developed a new commercial centre - one that would soon overtake Edmonton. Property was purchased from landowners, rails were laid and the (2 comments)

Edmonton Downtown Revitalization Katz's plan done properly will electrify downtown!!!!By Scott McKeen, Edmonton JournalMarch 26, 2010There are a few glimmers of true urban experience in our downtown.Hunt through the ruins of the once-proud strolling and shopping district and you'll find them.Yes, you'll pass parking lots and vacant lots, bunkers and faceless institutions. But suddenly, out of the bland, you'll come across a diner, fashion boutique, gallery or cafe.Downtown is a work in progress. Glacial progress. But progress nonetheless.The good news is of two bold plans emerging to reshape the core into a vibrant place of culture, community and commerce.One plan, city (0 comments)
Waterfall Update The City of Edmonton will not run the Great Divide Waterfall pending a review of options for using dechlorinated water. The City suspended operation of the waterfall in 2009 to explore ways to ensure alignment with the City’s commitment to the environment. The waterfall releases Edmonton tap water into the North Saskatchewan River. While this has very low amounts of chlorine to make it safe to drink and bathe in, chlorine is not a natural part of the river. http://www.edmonton.ca/attractions_recreation/attractions/natural_attractions/the-great-divide-waterfall.aspx

Economic spring appears to have arrived in Alberta 03/25/2011 by John Clinkard Over the past six months, more than one-third of the new jobs created in Canada have been in Alberta, which is home to just over 10% of the country's population. This clearly indicates the Wild Rose province is starting to bloom once more following an extended economic winter. Across major industries, manufacturing has, by far accounted for most (+41.7%) of the new jobs added followed by health services (+25.5%), professional and business services (+18%), natural resources (+10.9%) and agriculture (+8.2%). Reflecting this strong pattern of employment growth, (0 comments)
homefinders: Edmonton Dynamic People - 04/05/11 04:28 PM
Edmonton History: A Dynamic and Successful Mix of Peoples The thriving City of Edmonton was for thousands of years a gathering place of First Nations people. British traders built the first trading post here in 1795. For more than 100 years, immigrants from all over the world have been coming here seeking a better life — and finding it. Immigrants from Eastern Europe were initially attracted by affordable land, and Edmonton’s Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, and Slavic communities are still a strong presence today. The first Chinese arrived in Edmonton in 1892, and there has been a Chinese community ever since. The German (0 comments)

homefinders: Renos? Always more time and money than bargained for Always! - 03/31/11 08:43 PM
- Time: DIYers think they can renovate a bathroom or kitchen, build a deck or finish a basement in a weekend or in the evenings after work. They can't. People often underestimate how long it takes to do a job properly. It takes even longer to learn how to do things right -I don't know many people who learned to walk in a weekend! - Money: Buying the proper materials costs money. Hiring a professional costs money. There are so many variables in a renovation that it's almost impossible to foresee all the costs. People don't understand that for every dollar (0 comments)
homefinders: Silvery is still most popular for bathrooms - 03/31/11 08:38 PM
Silvery polished chrome is still the most popular finish for bathroom faucets and other fixtures, but it is far from the only option. Specialty bathroom stores may offer an overwhelming array of colours, metals and styles. While there are important differences between these finishes, what's inside also counts. source -Edmonton Journal

1. Did you know getting prequalified is not all hype. You serioulsy dont want to lose out on the home you fell in love with because someone else had their ducks in a row is ready to buy and you arent. That would suck! 2. Did you know prequalified is not just the bank said I should be good to go for such and such an amount? 3.
