Fire Fighter's Support Operation Lunchbox

(From Sherwood Park News) Many of us are fortunate enough to pack a lunch, but for some people, that option does not exist. Last year, it is estimated that 2,024 children and 979 teens accessed the Strathcona Food Bank, and the Strathcona County Youth Council (SCYC) is once again stepping up to help raise food donations.
Firefighter riding through rockies to conquer cancer

(From Sherwood Park News) Cancer can seem like an insurmountable mountain sometimes, but a local firefighter is hoping to help make the disease just a little more manageable. This summer, Sherwood Park resident and firefighter Jacob Young will be heading to the foothills of the Canadian Rockies to participate in the eighth annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.

In most cases, this flawed approach leaves the community short of the number of fire fighters needed to successfully protect the residents and businesses they serve.

And it is what Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater advocates. And it is, heaven help us, an idea the state Legislature will probably revisit. http://www.tampabay.
