Local director Deric Olsen who lives here in Magrath and commutes to work in Lethbridge (as a University Professor at UofL) made a movie last year. What is cool is that it was filmed right here (in Magrath) and area (Lethbridge) AND it is running at the Movie Mill all this week (4 Apr through 10 Apr). Recommended for entire family.

So .. the Shaw Go Wifi installers came by last Thursday and installed an extra little Wifi box on the wall .. so anyone with Shaw internet can connect and use the Shaw Go Wifi hotspot service. Even if you don't have Shaw at home, you can sign on as a 'Guest' and obtain basic news feed from Shaw Connect. Sweet. Once you register your device(s) they should automatically connect whenever you enter a Shaw Go Wifi hotspot zone. Shaw Go WiFi is included with your home or business Shaw Internet Plan .. for more details see http://www.shaw.ca/wifi/
.. and Obituaries and Sudoku .. Kudos to the Lethbridge Herald for their current link to daily Classified Section (PDF). Although I was known to start with the comics and others may only read the sports section, my Grandparents always started with the obit's to see if anyone they knew was in the news. I must be approaching their ages, as this section is starting to increase in appeal to me. Regardless of what your favorite section is, the real value of this section is for our local job seekers .. and the daily Sudoku.
"The Herald brings you fresh local job listings daily so you can find the right one fast. Do your paycheck a favour - start your search now. VISIT WWW.LETHBRIDGEHERALD.COM and WWW.SAJOBLINE.COM"
Also: since many Magrath area candidates are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (let's say maybe 80%), you may choose to use their excellent Job Search website: www.ldsjobs.org for both job seekers and any local employers looking for new employee's (and you don't have to be LDS to use their site).
And finally, don't forget our other 'more local' papers either: The Westwind Weekly News, the Garden City Commentator and even the Lethbridge Coffee News all have local contacts/offices where you can advertise and find more information ..
