  • Cop, fire wages not what you think

    cgallant@medicinehatnews.com @CollinGallant Medicine Hat’s police officers are not the highest paid in Canada, despite popular belief, and have actually been among the lowest paid in the province since 2010.

  • Night to remember for hometown boys

    srooney@medicinehatnews.com @MHNRooney Judging by the volume of his celebration, this wasn’t any other touchdown for Anthony Anderson.

  • MLA Report: Congratulations to Medicine Hat’s Olympians

    Track cycling is a sport which sees competitors on bicycles with no brakes travel at speeds that would see a Medicine Hat motorist receive a photo radar ticket.

  • Governments at all levels have a spending problem, not a revenue problem

  • Rancher speaking out should do something about the elk himself

    Re: “Rancher calls for action to reduce elk numbers at Suffield,” Aug. 2 I see the Annual Jeff Lewandoski Rant to kill the elk has started. I really think he just likes to hear himself talk.
