Featured Artist: Martin Warszawski

I’ve recently been asked, “What aspect of Lethbridge stands out for you the most?” And, besides the stupid ridiculous amount of trucks that plague this city, I would have to say it’s the amount of talented people I have met along the way (Lethbridge is also full of them).

In particular, I am proud to feature an amazing artist, and one of my best friends, Martin Warszawski. Since back in the day, he and I were creative influences upon one another, drawing comics, recording puppet shows and a Shakespeare video assignment featuring a dead gopher (we found it like that).

Discount massages; minimal risk of paralysis.

Recently, my masseuse left this city and took her golden hands along with her. My body delights in rubs and kneads, and I find myself missing her touch upon my body. Luckily, Lethbridge College’s Massage Therapy students need some hands-on experience, so they are running massage clinics three days a week this semester, from 5:30-8PM …
