PRINCE ALBERT — Njacko Backo, guest storyteller and musician, tells the tale of Mineu, a cat who ate everything in sight, to a captive audience of students, staff and parents at Prince Albert Public School recently. Students from Grades 4 to 8 have been working with Mr. Backo over the past week, learning folk dances and how to play a kalimba, an African thumb piano. Jan. 18, 2008
