What is new in Chestermere.  Apparently quite a lot!   The Chestermere Laker has published the first edition of their weekly newspaper.  This is what you will find in it! Lyme Disease Ticks have been found on pets in Chestermere!  Who knew?  The town does not know what to do with the weeds from the lake!  Who is surprised?  Pointy breasts are too sexy for a sign in Chestermere!  I never knew we had guidelines for that did you?  The sportsplex cannot get financing so it probably won't happen!  Too bad.  Storm water from Calgary will be diverted to Shepard.  Good to know.  With only 15,000 residents the library has over 6,550 members and lots of great summer programs.  Go library! A really special bike was stolen, Chestermere RCMP are looking for tips.  A good reminder to keep your valuab...
