MHC Conservatory growing its programs

Besides a sparkling resumé of impressive musical achievements, it’s fair to assume one of the aspects the Medicine Hat College liked about Brad Mahon when they hired him as the new manager of visual and performing arts at the Medicine Hat College Conservatory in January was the fact his past experience was as the head of the Conservatory of Performing Arts at the University of Regina.

Athena Burns can’t wait to get started with her first class at the Medicine Hat College Conservatory of Music and Dance for two reasons.

Where did the right go wrong?

Those who are of Conservative ideals and support such political parties on a provincial and federal scale are enjoying 2016 as much as a Saskatchewan Roughriders fan.

It was a prime harvest day on Aug. 16 for grain farmers near Vauxhall, yet 19 combines which should have perhaps been picking up crops on their own farms, were not.
Instead, mini convoys of combines headed toward a field four miles north of Vauxhall on a quarter section of land just on the west side of Highway 36.

Those anglers who enjoy catching rainbow trout from the Acadia Valley Municipal Dam are out of luck for the rest of the summer.
On Aug. 20-21, officials discovered the trout were all dead.

Saskatchewan is under the spotlight these days as the landmine term of “racism” makes an unwelcome appearance in news headlines.

One gets the impression from Janet Biemans that this year’s Quonset Days fundraiser in support of the ALS Society of Alberta was even more successful than usual.

Last week, Darla Lindbjerg, former executive director of the Swift Current Chamber of Commerce and now the AVP marketing and strategic intelligence at Innovation Credit Union in Swift Current, received an email from former colleague Steve McLellan.

Henry Banman loves Swift Current, but he isn’t happy with what he feels is overspending and a lack of communication and information between city council and its residents.

The self-described ambient-alt rock band based in Regina have come a long way from their humble beginnings of friends going to school together in southwest Saskatchewan where they jammed.
