    Inn from the Cold’s Emergency Family Shelter has been operating at or over capacity for 44 per cent of the time over the past year.

    That our North American culture marginalizes seniors is shameful indeed. Asian cultures — and many European ones as well — revere their seniors. Ours seems to have an inverse relationship between age and value. The older one gets, the less ‘value’ one seems to have. And yet there are scores of those of a ‘certain […]

    There must have been something magical about the evening of Oct. 14. How else to explain the enormous success of not one, but four events all happening at once? Whether the UNICEF Gala at the Hyatt, the Mustard Seed event at the Fairmont Palliser, the Booby Ball at Hotel Arts or Cocktails for Critters at […]

    The arts and profit should not be diametrically opposed. Arts organizations know the bottom line is as important as the product being offered. The Rozsa Award for Excellence in Arts Management salutes exceptional arts managers for this very thing. The annual award is unique in Canada because of the value and variety of benefits it […]

    Retail and restaurants are perhaps two of the more challenging fields to be in these days. But don’t tell that to the Henry Singer Fashion Group — an iconic Alberta menswear retailer that has served the well-dressed gentleman for 79 years.

    Tragedy, at times, can be turned into triumph. The Wood’s Homes’ story is a shining example of same. Wood’s Christian Home was founded in the Innisfail/Olds area by Reverend George Wood, a Scottish Presbyterian minister who moved to Canada with his wife Elizabeth in 1907. They settled in Saskatchewan. In 1914, tragedy struck when his […]

    A city is made great by the contributions of its citizens. And great citizens are what we are known for.

Since its […]
