There are a lot of peo­ple try­ing very hard to cre­ate and main­tain a high standard of ap­pear­ance around town, with flow­ers, benches etc., and then there seems to be many who don't care about clean­li­ness or for that mat­ter, any­thing at all.

We are speak­ing about the mess left ev­ery day by peo­ple who choose to dis­card waste prod­ucts in the park­ing area be­tween ATB Fi­nan­cial, and Cana­dian Tire. (Nei­ther of these cor­po­rate cit­i­zens are at fault here, they just lease the space they oc­cupy and pro­vide a nice spot to watch the traf­fic go by).

There is al­ways garbage thrown down and left be­hind for some­one else to re­trieve, and leave it for the winds to blow it away.

Guess we have a few words of ad­vice for those guilty, and that is to please take it back to your car, and throw it on the floor, or bet­ter yet, take it home and dump it in your kitchen.

Your mother will be so pleased that she raised such a fine child.

Saw Steve Hu­caluk, Curt Blanchett and Ed Caswell chat­ting out­side the post of­fice the other day, and they must have been plan­ning some­thing big, be­cause Ed was there to make sure they did it right.

We see the Town of Hanna has pur­chased, swapped, traded, their present pub­lic works shops in town, for the for­mer Al­berta Trans­porta­tion shops on the south side of High­way 9, across from Hanna Mo­tor Prod­ucts. Don't know all of the de­tails, but prob­a­bly a good move for them con­sid­er­ing they had plans un­der­way to build a new build­ing. They paid $500k plus their present build­ing to the owner, who will move into the town's present shops.

Our per­sonal con­grat­u­la­tions to all the great peo­ple out at Dalum, cel­e­brat­ing their 100th an­niver­sary this week­end. We spent a lot of time out there grow­ing up and made a lot of friends, and try­ing our best to get a date, with­out much luck most of the time.

They have a lot of great mem­o­ries, and we hope there is enough time dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion to re­mem­ber them all.
