Reader’s Opinion: Outsider Looking in on the Community

I can remember traveling back and forth from Lloydminster to Nipawin with my fiancé at the time. She was from Nipawin and always talked about how good the local hockey team was. I enjoy a good hockey game. Lloydminster had many teams to follow, which I did, with my nephews and my oldest daughter who all loved the game. I can remember traveling on the buses and having a great time bonding with the players and other parents. Read more about Reader’s Opinion: Outsider Looking in on the Community

We finally received a bit of a reprieve from the extreme cold that we endured over Christmas and New Year’s. I went out one day to patrol and did not see a soul. It would be pretty uncomfortable to ice fish in that extreme cold, even if you were in a shelter. The nice thing about the cold is that it made some pretty good ice which should make access to lakes much easier. Read more about Leko’s Conservation Corner – Ice Fishing

Leko’s Conservation Corner – Illegal sale of fish and game meat online

Written by Ministry of Environment Conservation Officer Lindsey Leko

Every morning I wake up and grab my iPad while I have breakfast. I read the news, look at local events and of course read some of the happenings on my Facebook account. I distantly remember reading a newspaper back in the day, but cannot imagine what life would be like without my iPad and the development of social media sites.
