Follow Me on TwitterTim Cornett is a lifelong resident of Windsor and a diehard fan of the Windsor Spitfires, Toronto Maple Leafs, Hamilton Tiger Cats, Pittsburgh Steelers, and just to be different, Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles - ('hey, if my father-in-law can have two favourite hockey teams, I can have two favourite baseball teams!') Tim is a photographer by profession, with a love of writing. 'Whatnot' pays homage to his late father Jim's long running Windsor Star column 'Who, When and Whatnot.'

SNAPSHOT - University of Windor campus at Abars?

Jun. 11, 2016: Yesterday I half jokingly said that the University of Windsor should think about turning Abar's into a satellite campus for the History Dept. They would, of course, have to negotiate with the Moroun people. Perhaps a land swap with something closer to the bridge. FULL STORY

Memorial Cup 2017 Coming To Windsor
Memorial Cup 2017 Coming To Windsor

May. 2, 2016: this morning’s long awaited announcement that the Windsor Spitfires will play host to the 2017 MasterCard Memorial Cup. In a press release from the Spits, OHL Commissioner David Branch was quoted as saying “The city of Windsor and Essex County is home to some of the most passionate fans in the entire Canadian Hockey League.” Commissioner Branch is right. We love our hockey, and we love our Spitfires. Think back to May 2010 when the Spits won their second Memorial Cup in a row. FULL STORY

Red Wings spoil Babcock's Homecoming

Oct. 10, 2015: Mike Babcock made his return to the Motor City Friday night along with his new team, but it was his old team that spoiled the party. In a highly anticipated matchup, the Detroit Red Wings hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Joe Louis Arena and came out on the winning end of a 4-0 score. FULL STORY

Sep. 28, 2015: Blood Moon is sometimes used to describe a Total Lunar Eclipse. When the Earth casts its shadow on a Full Moon and eclipses it, the Moon may get a red glow. This photo was sent to us by OH columnist Tim Cornett. FULL STORY

What about Keon and Horton?

Sep. 19, 2015: On a drizzly Saturday afternoon last week, in the centre of the hockey universe, the latest bronze statues of Leafs past were unveiled. Legends Row welcomed two new members, as the likenesses of Borje Salming and Mats Sundin joined those of Johnny Bower, Ted Kennedy, and Darryl Sittler. In my humble opinion there are others who should have been cast in bronze before them. FULL STORY

Jul. 11, 2015: Currently known as the Queen of the Lakes, the MV Paul R. Tregurtha is the largest ship currently working the Great Lakes. She is a bulk carrier freighter, and was originally launched as the William J. DeLancey. She is the last of thirteen “thousand footers” to go into Great Lakes service. She is also the last Great Lakes ship to have been built in Lorain, Ohio at the American Ship Building Company yard. FULL STORY

SNAPSHOT - New Market opens in Windsor

Jun. 8, 2015: The City Market opened in the Walkerville area this weekend, and by all indications, it was a smashing success. Located on the east side of Walker Road just north of Richmond Street, the brand new complex features many vendors selling fruits and vegetables. There is also a butcher, a baker, and while we didn’t see a candle stick maker, there was an Avon lady and a florist. The prices are great too. We stocked up on fruits and vegetables and got everything in the photo below for 23.00! Check it out next time you’re in the area. FULL STORY

Windsor Raceway - All But Gone
Windsor Raceway - All But Gone

Jun. 6, 2015: As demolition of the Windsor Raceway begins this week I’m reminded of all the good times I spent there over the years. My earliest memory of the place was the day my mom and dad took us to see it. I was about seven years old, and if I remember right, it was an open house affair, where we were all allowed to go out onto the racing surface. It felt like rubber, and was called something like the Tartan Track. FULL STORY

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus - Babcock headed to Toronto

May. 20, 2015: To quote New York Sun newsman Francis Pharcellus Church; “Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” Jolly old St. Nick brought Mike Babcock from Hockeytown to the real centre of the hockey universe. FULL STORY

The 8 Week Challenge - It’s Not A Diet

May. 7, 2015: Today’s column comes with a disclaimer. It’s not for the faint of heart. To my family, friends and associates, the following may be quite shocking to all of you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I haven’t had a coffee in over a week. Or French fries. Or pizza. Or a lot of things I used to eat and drink. Why? Because along with ten of my colleagues at DJ Galvanizing, and our spouses, I began a program called the 8 Week Challenge. FULL STORY
