That's Life - September 30, 2020

Yes, it can be a little trying getting around Three Hills, these days, but it will be worth the hassle when it’s all done.

We’re told that the end of October should mark the completion of the ongoing road repairs, water line replacement, water and sewer line replacement and the Aquatic Centre exterior project. Give or take a week.

Several willow trees have been planted at the north end of Anderson Park to replace some of the evergreens that died due to conditions too wet for their own good. We are told that willows lap up the water and thrive in wet conditions.

I want to thank Darlene Sommerville and her group of volunteers for the tremendous amount of work they put into Anderson Park.

I would also like to thank our parks department for the amazing job they do to make our community such a beautiful place to live.

We often take things for granted because we live here but when you hear compliments on our town from visitors it makes you take note. It makes you proud.

If you see our parks department at work be sure and thank them for all of their hard work. Believe me, they hear all about it when something goes wrong.

Next week The Capital will publish our annual Fire Prevention Week section. We are very proud of our fire departments within Kneehill County. This special section gives us the opportunity to share photos, stories and statistics taken from the pages of The Capital over the last year.

We would like to thank, in advance, the many regional businesses that support this section each and every year. Simply put, we couldn’t do it without them.

On October 21, The Capital will publish our third annual Small Business section. This section promotes regional businesses, schools and municipalities who employ our citizens and keep our communities healthy and vibrant. But that can only happen when we all support local business.

In this section you will see the number of employees that each business supports. We will do our best to include as many regional businesses as possible but time is running out.

If you would like your business to be included in this section but have not been contacted please call us at 403-443-5133 or email us at We want your employee numbers to be part of our 2020 grand total. Last year’s participating businesses employed 946 people. That’s a lot of food on a lot of tables throughout Kneehill County and that’s why it is imperative that we shop local and support small business.

That’s Life.
