Lalama enjoying the ride with fellow kid pop stars

By Chris Brown on February 16th, 2017

cbrown@medicinehatnews.com @MHNBrown Being a teenage pop star has its perks. Just ask Justin Bieber.

By Medicine Hat News on February 16th, 2017

Eye on the Esplanade: Spread your wings at Winged Tapestries

By Medicine Hat News on February 10th, 2017

I am a genuinely curious person. My mother had some wonderful stories of my childhood; usually centered on some mischief caused by my overly inquisitive nature. I vividly recall as a boy spending an hour or more (…and being late for dinner!) in a wooded area near one of our homes watching a large multicoloured ... Read More »

Now, I’m not an expert on love ... Read More »

Review: ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ will steal your heart

By Chris Brown on February 3rd, 2017

cbrown@medicinehatnews.com @MHNBrown A love story like no other is being told at Crescent Heights High School, and it’s a story that shoots straight for your heart. “Bonnie & Clyde” (not “Clyde & Bonnie” because nothing rhymes with Bonnie) is a particularly fun action-packed mix of high stakes drama, soaring musical numbers and comedy.
