Concert called off

Slow ticket sales have prompted the Stettler District Agricultural Society to cancel this Saturday’s concert, which was supposed to feature Julian Austin and One More Girl.

“Due to poor ticket sales, the board of directors has decided to cancel the event,” agricultural society acting president Laurel Pole said Tuesday.

“We didn’t want to do an injustice to Julian Austin and One More Girl.”

Pole said the ag society was in the process of notifying those people who had already bought tickets.

Hit-and-run case returns to court

A 24-year-old man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run vehicle crash that killed a former Botha-area teenager this month was set to return to court today.

Brent Robert Cameron of Red Deer appeared in Red Deer Provincial Court last Friday and reserved plea to this week for charges of failing to stop and render assistance at the scene of a collision and for public mischief.

Paul Gabriel Bertin, 18, was killed in the hit-and-run incident on Red Deer’s Taylor Drive Bridge on Oct. 6 at about 2:05 a.m. Bertin was just a couple of blocks away from his home, where he lived with his brothers.
