The Lake Will Miss Sylvan Lake News Editor Steve Dills

Steve Dills, the now-retired editor of the Sylvan Lake News, is a First Hero of the Watershed. Thanks Steve.

Here’s why.

Editor Steve has reported on just about all lake and watershed affairs, like, forever.

He filled the pages of the Sylvan Lake News with reports on the politics, community events, and environmental affairs of our 104 square kilometres of watershed basin where we live, visit, work to protect, and enjoy.

Here is an archive of some of the articles that Steve Dills published in the Sylvan Lake News in recent years. Click on any link to revisit history:
