We need to ensure STARS keeps flying

By Letter to the Editor on March 25th, 2017

This last weekend my husband and I went to see the STARS Lottery House built by Avonlea Homes. We could not believe how gorgeous it was. Everything about it from the room, layout, the finishings, decorating and the lovely view, make it an exceptional house. I always think it is a mistake that a service ... Read More »

Who really benefits from tax breaks?

By Letter to the Editor on March 23rd, 2017

Who are the people continually harping on “tax breaks?” Who benefits most from tax breaks? The loudmouths who have the time to promote tax breaks come mostly from corporate executives and their hirelings in think tanks.

Leadership race a call to action for pro-lifers

By Letter to the Editor on March 23rd, 2017

The results of a recent Lethbridge survey by the Citizen Society Research Lab indicate that the majority of church-goers agree with abortion.

As of a specified date, the road to your home will be gated and locked. Reason being, you have wrecked your road over the last 30 years of use. Or how about your local park? How would it be if it was locked up because somebody vandalized the equipment or had been riding on bike ... Read More »

Everyone wins when teams show class in blowouts

By Letter to the Editor on March 22nd, 2017

Recent high school basketball games showed a number of blowouts – scores like 102-30, 82-27, 87-37 and 98-31. Many of us have been there, on the losing or winning teams. It happens! The truth is, it isn’t funny at all whether you are on the team or just watching. It is especially painful to watch ... Read More »

2017 goal: fewer emails

By Lethbridge Herald on December 10th, 2016

I have been one of those people who has relied on email to both ask and answer questions, to ask for an action item, or to provide information. In a world when people complain that email communication has information-overloaded their life and extended work hours in a digital world beyond reason, I think it is ... Read More »

What will it take to have safe society?

By Lethbridge Herald on October 19th, 2016

I find myself thinking about a young woman from our community whom I have never met. I grieve for her as she completely lost personal safety, as she was on her way to earn her living, when she was so savagely attacked by a total stranger. I imagine how happy she was on her wedding ... Read More »

By Lethbridge Herald on May 6th, 2016

They call to end private and charter school funding, and use the crutch that extra funding is used to run charter schools. The referred to article spells out clearly ... Read More »

By Lethbridge Herald on March 1st, 2016
