Stormwater opposition not NIMBYism

I wondered when the phrase NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) would come up in relation to the controversy surrounding the plan by the Town of Blackfalds to divert its stormwater into Lacombe Lake.

Lake needs to stay pollutant-free

I would like to comment on Mayor Melodie Stol’s sentence, “When I look at Cranna Lake, the Len Thompson Fishing Pond and Barnett Lake I see beautiful areas of Lacombe that are environmentally responsible.”

Act wisely for lake's future

I was encouraged by Lacombe Mayor Steve Christie’s article in this week’s edition, in which he said, “A free exchange and discussion of ideas can also lead to creative solutions to issues facing the community”

Over the past few weeks I have noticed that there has been considerable misinformation being shared regarding the Town of Blackfalds Northwest Area Master Stormwater Management Plan.

Cleanliness at local hospital

I am a new patient at Lacombe Hospital. I find this hospital to be very clean. My husband was here three years ago and it was very clean then, too.
