Gadsby county roads underwater, muddy and ready for road bans

The county has been out clearing culverts and monitoring spring progress. A lot of farmland is also under water.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — The roads in the county, around Gadsby, are underwater, muddy and ready for road bans. The county has been out clearing culverts and monitoring spring progress. A lot of farmland is also under water.

The Town of Gadsby has been busy, they’ve had the steamer out clearing culverts, pumpers moving and removing water from town lots. An instant thaw and this past week’s rain-snow mix are the culprits. I won’t mention the dense fog once again.

Canada Post has been busy as well. A load of pea gravel has been placed under and around the super boxes in Gadsby. There was a set of boxes left open overnight, but all well. Any concerns should be directed to the postal office in Camrose.

The Gadsby hall served 102 would-be Irishmen at the St, Patrick’s Day Dine and Dance. It was a huge success and all the proceeds are going towards the current projects at the hall. They are now hooked up to the county water line, making potable water available for public use. Their main project is upgrading the bathrooms, which is almost completed, next comes new plumbing, and connecting to the Gadsby lift system. This is of course a work in progress.

Barb and Vic Carey recently helped granddaughter Victoria celebrate her 18th birthday on Saturday, March 4 with dinner out in Stettler. Victoria’s Dad, Matthew Jarmin, brothers Jonah, Taylor and wife Alho were there, as well as Uncle Wes Carey. Happy Birthday Victoria!

Barb and Charlotte Scheible took a girls’ day and motored to Red Deer for a day of shopping and lunch out on Saturday.

Sincere sympathies to Wayne (Margery) Glasier, Harvey (Barb) Glasier and Kay (Doug) Hankinson and families on the recent and sudden loss of their cousin Doug Rea while holidaying in Mexico. Also to Doug’s wife Angie and their family. Doug was 61 years of age.
