By the Way: New day, new joy

By Medicine Hat News on January 6th, 2018

It has been said that each year provides us with 12 blank chapters and 365 new opportunities to add or change our life story. As I write this, it is the start of a new year, 2018, and for many, the start of a new day where we can press the ‘reset button’ and start ... Read More »

Heritage in the Hat: Reflections of a heritage geek

By Medicine Hat News on January 6th, 2018

The media have been full of year-end round-ups of memorable events and “best of” awards. Rather than focus on a specific heritage resource for this column, I would like to reflect as well. I receive constant support and positive feedback about the bi-weekly column on our heritage that appear courtesy of the Medicine Hat News. ... Read More »

Medalta Musings: Over the years, work at Medalta has changed

By Medicine Hat News on January 6th, 2018

Medalta has always been about work, about hard work. Back in the 1920s, work looked like a teenaged Bill Wyatt unloading boxcars of clay after a full day of work for a couple of bucks per car, building up strength so he could play baseball for teams throughout the region (he was that good). Or ... Read More »

Insurance Understood: Good vs. evil

By Medicine Hat News on January 6th, 2018

As a child I loved the TV show called Inspector Gadget. The main character was a detective who would always intercept the evil plans of the villain, Dr. Claw. (Side note: I am literally smiling as I type this.) Anyway, Inspector Gadget always figured out a way to solve cases and come out on top. ... Read More »

Praxis: Science fair season is here

By Medicine Hat News on January 6th, 2018

Oh my, I can hardly believe that the holiday break is quickly coming to an end. Where did the time go? Well, I know some of you out there have a science fair project due after the break; perhaps you have been busy and did not have a chance. I completely understand. Are you having ... Read More »

A new year

By Medicine Hat News on January 5th, 2018

I had a lot of company over the Christmas holidays. Some were here just to open gifts. Some came to share a meal and others were here for a few days. People were coming and going while I was the one constant in the celebrations. Because I live alone, the whole experience was very different ... Read More »

With 2017 in the past, it is time to look forward to new beginnings and new resolutions as we step into 2018. A particularly common New Year’s resolution is increasing one’s physical activity.

By the Way: Look back at 2017 so you can look forward to 2018 and beyond

By Medicine Hat News on January 2nd, 2018

Does New Year’s Eve make you reflective? Does it make you think over the years that have passed and wonder where you have come from and where you are going? At New Year’s we look back as well as forward. It is good for us to look back once in a while and review what ... Read More »

Praxis: Don’t let all that Christmas wrapping paper go to waste

By Medicine Hat News on January 2nd, 2018

I don’t know about you, but after the holidays, I have a ton of paper lying around my house. I have been thinking what I should do with it. It is all torn up and in little shreds; likely due to the holiday excitement (by me of course!), but I got to thinking that is ... Read More »
