Letters to the Editor

Thanks to a good samaritan in a snow storm

Dear Editor, On Feb. 14 around 11 a.m., a freak blizzard blew up just south of Okotoks.

Aldersyde development a concern for residents

Dear Editor, New “town” planned for Highway 2 & Highway 547 - Aldersyde East. A group of landowners are preparing an area structure plan to build a new town, directly east of Highway 2, including land on both the north and south sides of Highway 547.

Follow the rules of the road to make them safe

Dear Editor, On the TV news tonight concerns were expressed about the unsafe behaviour on the ski hills, particularly the snow boarders. One gentleman said, “It’s about being responsible for your behaviour on the slopes.

Thanks from concert planners

Dear Editor Re: 11th Annual Okotoks Food Bank Christmas Concert A tremendous round of applause for an outstanding effort. Two sold-out concerts with over 450 people attending each evening. We have received so many nice compliments on the two shows.

Sharing the Magic of Christmas

Dear Editor, The Magic of Christmas once again had a very successful, blessed day of delivering joy and gifts to over 130 families in the Foothills area.

Fans should get on the Oilers bandwagon

Dear Editor, I have lived in the Okotoks area for some time and am somewhat of a sports fan. I have, over the years, attended just about every amateur sporting event that has been on in this area. Soccer, baseball, lacrosse etc.

Energy program has an impact

Dear Editor, I recently read a letter in your newspaper from a person who had a negative experience with our Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program.

Businesses should close for Remembrance

Dear Editor, Many years ago, respectable businesses would close their doors on the morning of Nov. 11 out of respect for those who served in armed conflicts to ensure the freedoms enjoyed in Canada.

Carbon tax just a cash grab

Dear Editor, Since the NDP’s Carbon Tax was going to help save emissions we decided to have Energy Efficiency Alberta install some energy efficient light bulbs.

A proud Falcon parent

Dear Editor, As I write this I am not sure where the Foothills Composite Football Team will be at the end of the season. It does not matter though because where they stand at the end of the season is not important.
