Ticked Off

There is a tremendous difference between dogs being “under control” or “in control.” The latter is not what the bylaws demand.

Ticked Off

I’d like to thank the person who paid for my coffee and muffin Tuesday at a local drive thru. Your kindness will be paid forward on Friday when I’m in town. Red Explorer driver, thanks for your kindness.

Ticked Off

Just wondering if the wind turbines by the MHC Cultural Centre are ever going to turn and generate some electricity or just sit there and look ugly.

Ticked Off

At the person who thinks the U.S. now has such a great leader. Maybe you should move there if you think he is so great. Two more words for you: Universal healthcare.

Tickled Pink

At the community support from Hatters to celebrate the Stampede, including businesses giving employees the morning off to enjoy the parade!

Ticked Off

It’s funny when people claim most media outlets are “left-wing” when every single one of them publicly endorses conservative candidates every election. You’re not fooling anyone, and no one is silencing you.

Ticked Off

The opinion piece “Public sector pay is out of whack” is not about your typical public sector employee. It always seems though when it comes to wage cuts it impacts those that make the least, not those that make the most. Those that make the most usually aren’t impacted.

Ticked Off

That we have to pay $120.9 for diesel fuel and only $101.9 per litre in Stony Plain. Is there a valid reason for this?

Tickled Pink

Thanks to the person who found my phone in a McDonalds parking lot and gave it to the staff member. I received it within an hour.

Ticked Off

At our local MP. Instead of praising the efforts of the organizers, volunteers and participants at a Stampede breakfast, he chose to make a campaign speech that totally slammed his political opponents.

Tickled Pink

That B.C. fruit has finally arrived in the Hat and we need not be subject to inferior produce from down south that costs a lot and is generally tasteless.

Tickled Pink

Gillian Slade’s recent editorial regarding excessive salaries and benefits for government executives and highly compensated staff employees hits the nail on the head. As one who has worked in both sectors, government employees should be paid only equivalent comparable to the private sector worker.

Ticked Off

Our new premier seems to spend more time flipping pancakes, partaking in various parades and travelling to Ontario than he does preparing a budget or revealing where he and his party are going to cut to pay for the lost big business tax revenue.

Ticked Off

Why do they not turn the lights on or put lights in the stairs at the grandstands? That is a long way down in the dark. How was no one hurt?

Tickled Pink

For the airport custodial staff member who just recently got his Canadian citizenship. Congratulations, amigo!!

Ticked Off

A new style of good parenting: A mom posting a picture on face book of herself and 16-year-old daughter drinking an adult beverage at a night show.

Ticked Off

That people can afford marijuana and cigarettes but not their rent and other bills.

Ticked Off

That someone painted over that classic and distinguishable red brick downtown. The building looks worse now and the integrity of the brick is gone forever.

Ticked Off

That homeowners continue to ignore bylaws and park their motorhomes on the street in front of their houses.

Ticked Off

Some seniors depended on the rebates from the carbon tax.

Ticked Off

At the lack of weed control in Redcliff.

Tickled Pink

I get my eyes checked every year and the doctor is so kind and helpful to me.

Tickled Pink

Thanks to the meter man for cancelling my parking ticket after I explained my predicament of losing my dog momentarily and not plugging the meter.

Tickled Pink

That there are bats in Medicine Hat. They clean up mosquitoes nightly.

Ticked Off

Please, no more photos of deer. They get into our yards, destroy gardens and poop in our yard. Let’s get rid of them from the city instead of photographing them.
