Bob Scammell – Alberta Outdoors
After my gloomy April 3rd trip west, I’m having a hard time believing how fast those record snows are disappearing. The downside is the reader reports I’m getting of mud in every flowing river and stream, ending any good ice-out fishing.

Suggest 1-way traffic
on 2 downtown streets
Brooks Bulletin, October 12, 1977—One-way traffic in the core of the downtown area was proposed by the Downtown Business Association when it met Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Proposal is for traffic to be one-way south on Second Street between First and Second Avenue and one-way north on First St. West from First Avenue to Second Avenue.
The measure will be recommended to town council on a trial basis, however, the council is awaiting a traffic study of the town and will likely not make any decision until it is ready, Mayor Bev Nelson told the meeting.  Full Story >
