READ ALL ABOUT IT
This newspaper is locally owned, and we live here.
With two major house fires over the past while, we were at the scene early enough, and feel the need to comment to readers they have to be aware that parked vehicles on the same street should be moved, albeit safely, to a spot away from the scene, so that emergency crews can do their job.
Just when you thought you knew just about everything, here's a new tidbit. Ever wonder what the name is for the area of your back that can't be reached for scratching?
It is called Acnestis, and no, we didn't make that up .... it came out of the Reader's Digest.
In Calgary for a Father's Day event and saw regular gas at 94.5 litre, while it is 114.5 litre in Drumheller.
We have to chuckle every time we see that Canadian Tire television commercial with all the kids dressed up in costumes looking like Father's Day gifts, and the kid with the drill costume on has him unable to move as he has tipped over. Very funny.
We were at a 65th wedding anniversary the other day, and looking around, did a quick addition of all present and how long each marriage lasted and came up with about 685 years. Granted, some spouses had passed away, but quite an achievement for the 13 couples present.
Since it involves taxpayers money, guess we have the right to complain once again about the poor job and at least two subsequent patch jobs done on the culvert replacement on Highway 575 in front of the former Encana location. This has gone on far too long and poses a danger to vehicles, when even the repairs are left undone.
Not a good situation. ◆◆◆
