  • From the City of Red Deer

    Residents are reminded to sign up for Snow Zone Alerts to get text, email, and phone call reminders before they need to move their vehicles off the street.

    Snow Zone Plowing will begin on Wednesday, February 27 on Green Routes in Snow Zone G; Grey Route plowing in Snow Zone G will follow on Monday, March 4.  Plowing will continue alphabetically through Snow Zones until complete. Parking restrictions will be in place during plowing in each Snow Zone, which could be a few days at a time.

    “It should only take our crews a day or two to plow Green or Grey Routes in each Snow Zone, but it takes a lot longer if people leave their vehicles parked on the streets,” said Public Works Manager Greg Sikora, “That’s why it is so important for people to know the schedule and move their cars.”

    There are many different ways for residents to learn the schedule:

    •   Sign up for Snow Zone Alerts to get text, email or phone call reminders before plowing starts in their Snow Zone
    •   Click here or check the schedule online at reddeer.ca/snowzone
    •   Follow the City of Red Deer on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates
    •   Call the Snow Zone Hotline at 403-406-8796
    •   Look for signs at neighbourhood entrances and on Green Routes“It isn’t feasible for us to put signs on every street, but that doesn’t mean residents shouldn’t know the schedule,” said Sikora, “Snow Zone Alerts are fantastic – it takes just a few minutes to sign up and you get a text, email or phone call – which ever you prefer – to remind you to move your car.”

      Parking restrictions are only in place for the route that is scheduled for plowing, so residents can park their cars on an alternate route while restrictions are in place.

      “When we’re plowing Green Routes, you can park your car on a Grey Route, which is usually just around the corner,” said Sikora, “It is the same case for Grey Route plowing; if you really need to park on the street, you can park on a Green route. That’s why we don’t plow Green and Grey Routes in a Snow Zone at the same time.”

    Central Alberta family looking for someone to be their Easter Miracle

  • This post has been submitted by the mother of a young Central Alberta father.  He moved to Calgary years ago to be closer to medical care.   His wife grew up in Sylvan Lake and Lacombe.  Together they’re raising 2 children and unfortunately their future is uncertain.  

    From Julie. 

    You may or may not have seen a desperate plea from a Central Alberta family trying to save a loved one’s life.  This is the kind of situation that requires a really large number of people to help out.  You never know who’s going to step forward and become someone’s hero.  The key is, they have to know about the situation before they can act on it.  So.. here’s a bit of information about this

    Alex’s Journey

    Having a baby is supposed to be a wonderful time in your life. Alex was born looking healthy; however, it all went wrong for him at 22 months of age.

    After being rushed by his Father and I by car to our nearby city hospital, Alex was hospitalized for 5 days with a 105 degree fever, which nothing would bring down. Alex was in so much pain, screaming a blood curdling sound that made you think someone was murdering this poor baby slowly.

    Once at hospital he was whisked away to try to identify the problem. They told us he was a mess inside and needed to be airlifted to Sick Children’s Hospital. Once there it became a series of surgeries and a lengthy hospital stay. His kidneys were being affected by a blockage he had developed.

    By age four he lost one kidney and again needed several hospital visits and surgeries to help save his other kidney. The doctors explained that Alex has Chronic Renal Failure and would eventually need a kidney transplant. At age 8 we almost lost him again due to a potassium overload in his remaining kidney that gradually slowed his heart dangerously. We made another trip to Sick Children’s Hospital to get his levels back down before his heart stopped.

    Through all these hardships Alex always remained a tough little guy. Now as a 29-year-old with a loving wife and 2 little ones, the time has come for our son and he is in need of a kidney.

    My name is Julie, I am his mother and I have said from the beginning of this journey that I will give my kidney. That being said, it would be wise to have more donors that are willing as well to help him have a greater chance of success. His older brother has also volunteered, so please help us give Alex and his family a happy, healthy life.

    Julie (mom)

    If you have Blood Type O and this something you could do, our family would be so grateful to have the chance to keep him in our lives and give him the opportunity to watch his children grow up. Anyone can be tested to see if they are a match. You will need Alex’s full name so please visit the Facebook Group we have set up and reach out to our admin/s. https://www.facebook.com/groups/708888052863495/

  • You couldn’t have written a better script!  When the Central Alberta Dream Home Lottery Grand Prize was drawn at noon Wednesday, the winners were just around the block!  A police officer sleeping after a busy night shift must have thought he was still dreaming when he replied to a string of phone messages he’ll never forget.  His wife, a social worker at a local high school had just left to return to work when he called her back.  They won the Dream Home and they could go see it right away.  It was took them about a minute to arrive.   Here’s what happened…

    It was an honour to experience this moment with the crew from the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!  We’d like to share it with you.
