HALKIRK HERALD — Mayor Dale Kent was invited to join other mayors and CAOs from the counties of Paintearth and Flagstaff to comment on the probable impact that closing the coal mines will have on the communities in East Central Alberta. The meeting was held on Thursday, Feb. 23 in Forestburg. A similar meeting took place in Hanna the day before.

Congratulations to Kim Turre and Derrick Lindballe who were married on Saturday, Feb. 25. The intimate ceremony with family and close friends took place at the beautiful Prairie Creek resort near Rocky Mountain House. Kim and Derrick make their home in Camrose.

Three local teams entered the Castor Men’s Bonspiel last week and all placed in the money. The team of Dan Fowler, JD Johnson, Kurt Chick and Corwin Solick placed first in the first. Trevor Duke, Dennis Turre, Graham Peterson and David Webber brought home first in the second event while Lee Fowler, Scott Koenraadt, Lyle Webber and Mark Spady placed third in the second event.
