  1. For a newspaper online, there is nothing to read. The same old stories, no updates. So please explain to me why? It’s so sad that we have no local news or anything to read. Looks to me, that something needs to be done…

    1. There is nothing to read, the stories are the same, and there are no updates. And you want to know why?

      It’s because this website is not an online newspaper. It is a courtesy to people unable to get the print edition, which has been a real newspaper (although small) for over 50 years. The website, as you may have noticed, is free.

      You will shortly be able to buy a PDF online of the complete print edition, readable on your desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

      The website gets 35,000 visits per month, according to Google Analytics.

      At any time, feel free to contact us with news, and / or photos of happenings. Input is always welcome.

  2. Ice shacks towing

    Hello, The people at A&H recommended to try you, I’m Looking to have a 8ftx20ft(i think with runners its 23ft) ice fishing shack and a 8ftx16ft shack hauled from a farmers yard north of Kinuso by the lake over to hilliards bay. The 8×20 is most important as I don’t think I can do that myself, I may be able to do the other myself but looking at a ballpark price if it’s something that you guys would be interested in doing? Not sure exactly what date yet depending on ice but probably mid-late Jan? I would be there to assist loading/offloading!

    Thanks for your time From: Alan

  4. Could someone please review the history of an Alberta Provincial Police Force in the early 1900’s!? It didn’t work then , so why would it work now?

  5. AHS has no compassion for Dr. Laughlin or his patients. They also do not respect the right to have your own business or our right to chose the Doctor we trust. Dr. Laughlin has faithfully cared for all his patients, often going above and beyond to find a cure. This disrespect for him, his clinic and his patients is bullying and shameful. It must stop. Immediately.

  6. Just read a GREAT article about Terryn Gauchier (+ a great photo). Interesting and informative. Thank-you Chris for featuring this wonderful artist and this inspirational piece of art.

  7. LaCrete Bridge

    There still has been no consultation over the bridge. Clifford Christian is taken to court by Alden Armstrong over his dealings on fb and the signage he done. PPMS members are feeling like they have no voice. Covid has been used to not consult or inform its a sad state of affairs on PPMS. I feel there is so much corruption, nepotism and personal gain. Each year is just getting worse. I have started the petition again in hopes that the members be heard. The members need help to be heard

  9. From: bonnie neufeld
    Subject: pregnancy care centre

    i am looking for people that would be interested in helping me with a centre in High Prairie. For more info please email me
    thank you

  10. The Slave Lake mayor is all over the place welcoming people from the High Level fire. I wonder where the High Prairie mayor or the Big Lakes reeve are at? Maybe serving up food at a soup line for the displaced folk or emptying garbage pails? Nah. Too much to expect.

  11. I hear High Prairie and surrounding Citizens bitch and complain all the time. Our governments suck and waste our hard earned tax paying dollars. The roads are a mess. Young offenders get off with nothing. Our schools don’t even teach the three R’s anymore and the kids really can’t tell time on a clock, only a digital one. And so it goes. I’m fed up hearing about it but I’m only one person, that’s it.
    Want to bitch and complain to over a thousand and people who are in charge and will read what you say?
    Well you just read this, and so will the people who call the shots and your neighbours.
    What do you have to say? Don’t tell me, tell this paper or shuttie.
