  Who wants to marry a millionare?PDF files may take a moment to load

A recent fox television special involved a millionaire choosing a wife from
50 women he had never met (who just happen to be models), through a contest involving swimsuit, evening gown and interview events.

The millionaire, Rick, looking suspiciously like a young Pete Rose, picked a statuesque blonde, Darva, to (as they put it), "have and hold until death do they part."

Get out the tissues; the vacuous gold-digger has wed the creepy rich guy.

Farmers are an interesting lot. Most of them (on the prairies at least), subscribe strongly to right-wing politics. They support the Ralph Kleins and Mike Harrises of the nation. They wish they could still store loaded weapons on the rear window of their pick-up trucks. They don't even blink when you talk about privatizing health care. Yet, when it comes to grain and hog subsidies, farmers back right off of that right-wing-free-market-laissez-faire stance.

Currently a development is being proposed in the Spray Lakes region that has the potential to reduce or destroy the bear population in the Bow Valley indefinitely. The proposal, put forward by Genesis Land Developments, will be located on the south end of the Spray Lake reservoir and calls for a luxury hotel, golf course, helicopter skiing, ski resort and boat tours. It is one of the last developments allowed in the Kananaskis region after last year's provincial government's moratorium on development.
