And it is an­other beau­ti­ful, blue-sky, sun­shiny day as this new week be­gins. Thank the Lord, we are get­ting the sun, we are get­ting the rain and we are get­ting the warm...a good sum­mer sea­son.

So, I re­ported last week about the Vil­lage of Mor­rin Coun­cil meet­ing I at­tended. I will quickly recap...high­lights men­tioned were that re­pairs to sewer/water lines on 1st av­enue north are soon to com­mence once qual­i­fied bids are as­sessed and dis­cus­sions are done with en­gi­neers and con­trac­tors...a lengthy process for our vil­lage coun­cil. Also, good to know...garbage bags and mowed grass bags for weekly pickup should not weigh more than 25 lbs. As far as re­cy­cling goes... we have two metal bins, one for newsprint and one for card­board...please en­sure card­board is flat­tened as per request from the Drumheller Land­fill workers who process our card­board and this speeds their job along. Also at the meet­ing, we learned that the Vil­lage of Mor­rin re­cently re­ceived from Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs... the “Al­berta Safety Recog­ni­tion Award” 20 years strong...well done!

And as some may have no­ticed, the Eastern Central Al­berta News­pa­per has been reg­u­larly send­ing re­porters out to our vil­lage to see how we are all do­ing. I am al­ways cu­ri­ous as to what their head­line is go­ing to read... the lat­est fol­low­ing the same coun­cil meet­ing I at­tended was...“Mor­rin Coun­cil, streets have more cracks than asphalt”. There are some bro­ken up streets around Mor­rin, mostly from an­cient water main breaks and leaks and heavy ve­hi­cles that rum­ble through town. And as the lines get re­placed the costly job of repaving will fol­low... “down the road” ...lit­tle play on words ha ha! Any­way, for now our Pub­lic works fore­man David Benci is do­ing his best to fill in the rough patches and pot­holes...all things con­sid­ered, it sure beats gumbo!

And so those are all my newsy thoughts for to­day. I would like to wish all the staff and stu­dents at the Mor­rin School a happy, rest­ful, fun-filled and safe sum­mer break. To any teach­ers that are re­tir­ing this year, God bless you and thank you for your ded­i­ca­tion and faith­ful ser­vice to do this most im­por­tant work...time to en­joy a new stage of life and ad­ven­ture...carry on!

Cheers!
