Musings on a Monday
Nice to see the Oilers win in Olds on the weekend, they are now
up 2-1 in the series with game four tonight at the Olds barn.
In Jr. B play what a great game at the Bob Snodgrass rink last night
in High River as the Flyers tied their series with the Bisons. Both
teams have great goaltending this year and pretty solid teams.
Best of luck to both teams!
Musings from the morning
Its the Bisons and the Flyers in game #1 tonight
in Okotoks at the Murray Arena. Game time is
8 o'clock! Game 2 is Sunday in High River at 5pm.
The Heritage Pointe Lake will be busy with a "fishing
derby" and "hockey" on Sunday as the Firefighter
Classic starts at 10 am with the Derby and hockey
in the afternoon. Fun and prizes await and it's free
for families of The Foothills.
Enjoy your weekend!
The Highway 2A has been a real bad place for accidents this winter
there was another one today along that strip of Highway 2A near Cargill.
Junior "A" Hockey (AJHL) Playoffs and round one begins tonight for the Oilers
in Okotoks. Game number one starts at 7 bells at the Centennial Arena!
Listen tomorrow to AM 1140 , we'll talk Rodeo, local hockey and more
just after 6am, with Tradio at 9:05am
The Battle of New Orleans, San Jacinto & Galveston were great ones
in history. This battle proves to be the biggest in Junior "B" history
in our area as it's game number 1 Friday in Okotoks for The Flyers
and The Bisons. Only in Canada could we relate a real battle with a
battle on ice, but here it is southern Alberta.
Who are you picking in the Okotoks/High River series? I can't favour
either because I go to each one of their golf tournaments!
Fire it up and enjoy the rivalry. I would like to also send a shout
out to friends and family who make Flyer and Bison hockey
available to Southern Alberta! You are appreciated!

Really had a blast at Ag Expo in Lethbridge this
past week. The Moons came all of the way down
to Lethbridge to say hi and others dropped by the
AM 1140 booth as well. Thanks to sponsors,
Farmers of North America and Exhibition Park
in Lethbridge. The staff at Exhibition Park spoiled
me with coffee and smiles every morning.
Great equipment and a fun new set up and back drop
made the week in Lethbridge fun!
Musings from the week
The boys from Westridge Electric gave us some
awesome tips for our home and commercial properties
today on "Breakfast with Charlie". Follow Westridge
Electric at westridgeelectric.com and get details on their
commercial and residential service.
Tom Kowal (NHL Referee) was on a Olympic break this week.
Tom dropped in Friday with donuts and talked about his two
a day workouts this past week. He was getting ready for weigh in
and getting back to work when the NHL resumes play this Thursday.
Check NHL.com out for a story they did and posted on their
website about Tom and his family dealing with the flood of 2013.
It is heart warming!
Elyse from Austen Jewellers joined me Thursday on "Breakfast
with Charlie", we talked Diamonds, Old Jewellery and how to renew
it, plus watches and more. Elyse is at the new Okotoks location of
Austen Jewellers, they are also in the Sprung Business Community in
High River. Go to austenjewellers.com to see their awesome line up
of products and services. (including an in house goldsmith)

Musings on Balloons
Great to see that the balloons will be back in High River. The
Balloons brought people together for an awesome few days in
the fall this past year and it's great to see them coming back.
Way to go Jamie, congrats to all associated with a great
time in our town.
Musings from the Morning with a co-host
Dean Leask(left) the one with the hair!!!
It is not always that a friend who has been in business for a number
of years can stop in on the radio and chat about what He does.
Dean Leask paid someone to come on the radio with AM 1140
and chat about what He does today. It was an honor to have
Dean co-host. I could say Dean is a "purveyor of what doesn't hit
the conveyor", or just say that He hauls garbage, efficiently &
effectively away from your house, business and or ranch with
his company Contain-A-Way! Dean's Dad Ken started the business
a number of years ago after selling a storage business along with
a rental business previous to that. Both of those business's were ran
right out of High River. Today, Dean has computers to more efficiently
pick up waste and to deal with day to day operations at Contain-A-Way.
Dean is quick to credit Dad Ken for starting and running a solid business
without the aid of all of the new technology when he mentions what
they work with today. The new technology leaves Dean time to enjoy
family and recreation, a convenience his dad didn't have. Technology
and great employees are Contain-A-Ways back bone. The hard
ground work was Dad's and Dean carries on today serving Southern
Alberta from the city limits to Granum and areas in between from their
location just out of High River on 2A
