Residents of Lacombe County now have a new way to stay in touch with their Municipal Government. The “my Lacombe County” app has been launched and is available to Apple device users and can be downloaded from the Apple Store.

County officials say they were looking to connect with their ratepayers in a more mobile way and came up with the idea for an app. Created in-house by Alex Guse, the County’s IT Application Specialist, the app allows people to obtain fire permits, create service requests, find contact information and easily access County events, Council meetings and social media updates.

Flames sign Kadri to 7-year, $49-million deal, trade Monahan to Canadiens

Published on

CALGARY — The Calgary Flames have signed forward Nazem Kadri to a seven-year, US$49-million deal. 

The 32-year-old Kadri was one of the biggest names available in free agency after an all-star season with Colorado that ended with the Avalanche winning the Stanley Cup.

Kadri had 28 goals and 59 assists in 71 games for the Avalanche in 2021-22.

He added 15 points in 16 playoff games, including the overtime winner in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final against Tampa Bay. 

That was his return to action after being injured in Game 3 of the Western Conference final after being hit from behind by Edmonton forward Evander Kane.

The Flames also sent forward Sean Monahan and a conditional 2025 first-round pick to the Montreal Canadiens for future considerations in a move to create salary cap space for Kadri’s contract.
