NO! Enough money has already gone towards DARP!

I absolutely disagree with the taxpayers of St. Albert, paying for this....we already have a council that likes to spend OUR money carelessly on such things as the trees along the trail.... PLEASE PEOPLE DO NOT LET THIS PASS This will be another tax burden for St. Albert, such as Servus Place and the Enjoy Center...STOP THE MADNESS!

Thanks for calling attention to what this city is doing to itself!

Citizens must band together to have this proposal killed at the city council level immediately. Pressure must be applied to the likely too many councillors who SAP thinks would happily dig deep into your pockets again and approve this nonsense as part of DARP. Phone or email council members and tell them this is unacceptable and do it now. You can easily contact council members by your choice of methods

And finally, please do not miss
David Climenhaga’s comments on this awful deal for local residents.

Bixman is always on the lookout for common items
that might stump readers. Has he done it with this
week’s item? Can you identify this?
Looking straight
up under a power transmission tower. This one is
uncommon in that it also has an anti-climb guard
installed as evidenced by the barbed wire visible at
outer edges of the bottom section.

Meanwhile At The Pearly Gates

Meanwhile At The
When everybody on earth was dead and waiting to enter Heaven, God appeared and said, “I want the men to make two lines: One line for the men who were true heads of their household, and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women.”

“I want all the women to report to St. Peter.”

Soon, the women were gone, and there were two lines of men.

The line of the men who were dominated by their wives was hundreds of miles long and in the line of men who truly were heads of their household, there was only one man.

God said to the long line, “You men should be ashamed of yourselves; I created you to be the head of your household!”

“You have been disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose!”

“Of all of you, only one obeyed. Learn from him.”

God turned to the one man, “How did you manage to be the only one in this line?”

The man replied, “This is where my wife told me to stand.”

You’re Doing Allowance Wrong

You’re Doing Allowance Wrong
When it comes to kids and money, there are few topics that cause more confusion for parents than allowances. When should you start? Should it depend on the completion of chores? If you give too little, are you a scrooge? If you give too much, will your kids become brats?

Alas, most parents, acting on their own or following the lead of others, get allowances wrong.

Don’t start it too late, don’t link it to chores, and don’t skimp.

Here’s how to do it right.
