Post-secondary salaries excessive

By Letter to the Editor on April 19th, 2018

Having sat on a post-secondary board of governors, I read The Herald article dealing with excessive renumeration for university and college presidents with interest. The setting of presidential compensation by post-secondary boards has been, and is, flawed. First of all, boards are advised by post-secondary administration that they sure don’t want to see their president’s ... Read More »

Put a halt to waste of taxpayers’ money

By Letter to the Editor on April 19th, 2018

I live in a large condo, 250 suites. Last year, our carbon tax paid totalled $24,000. This year at $1.50 per ggl, we will pay at least $36,000 and maybe more as the winter has been colder than our average. Now the Alberta Energy vehicles are coming to our complex for several weeks to change ... Read More »

We must be a voice for the preborn

By Letter to the Editor on April 19th, 2018

Some people were offended, they complained and their voices were heard. The city received about 100 emails is what we’ve been told. However, a week since the city decided to pull the advertisements, approximately 2,100 babies have been aborted in our country. More than 2,000 little lives snuffed out. These babies were never given an ... Read More »

Choice based on false information

By Letter to the Editor on April 18th, 2018

I was glad to hear that the ads supporting life in the womb were being displayed. I was sad and amazed that they were being taken down so quickly. These ads can bring painful feelings to the fore. I feel sorry for the woman who suffered miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. I also feel sorry ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on April 18th, 2018

Over the last five plus decades, we have witnessed a number of incredible advancements with the way humans understand and interact with each other and the world around us. These advancements come in a variety of forms with technology being the most obvious, but medicine, social science and mathematics have also enlightened human kind. Advancements ... Read More »

After attending the February Plastics Recycling Conference in Nashville, Tenn. and presenting at this month’s “The China Market” workshop in Edmonton, here is what Lethbridge citizens should know about the ramifications of our soon-to-be-implemented “Single Stream Recycling Program.” 1.

There are options for varied radio entertainment

By Letter to the Editor on April 15th, 2018

This is in reference to a recent letter by Kirby Doktor, in which he complains about local radio’s lack of variety. I certainly agree with many of Mr. Doktor’s opinions, having been annoyed myself many times over the years by hearing the same songs and advertisements over and over. But have no fear, Mr. Doktor, ... Read More »

Different approach needed to reduce abortions

By Letter to the Editor on April 15th, 2018

Re: the pro-life/pro-choice debate, it is not surprising that the “free speech” argument is being used by social conservatives to protest the removal of the bus stop “anti-abortion” advertising in Lethbridge and the implementation of safe zones around abortion clinics. There are ways for less abortions to be done, which, sadly, are possibly not supported ... Read More »

Why ticket parents with so many other issues to deal with?

By Letter to the Editor on April 14th, 2018

Daily I drive my children to school, walk them to their class, and tell them that I love them. After six years of this practice, I was presented with a parking ticket, as were many other parents, by an officer who obstructed traffic by parking in the middle of the road to provide parents with ...

Don’t push seniors off of Fritz Sick floor

By Letter to the Editor on April 14th, 2018

Having lived in Lethbridge since 1997, I have attended dances twice a week and music jams once a week with other seniors at LSCO with 60-90 in attendance. At each occasion, a resin was applied to the floor without consultation with the seniors. You could not dance without the use of floor wax. Shortly, the ... Read More »

Society seems to no longer value sanctity of life

By Letter to the Editor on April 12th, 2018

I would like to express my thoughts regarding the removal of pro-life signs in Lethbridge. The Canadian government has chosen to sanction “assisted dying” for those with terminal illness, who are experiencing pain and suffering. And yet we hesitate to acknowledge that an unborn baby, helpless, defenceless and without a voice of his/her own, also ... Read More »
