All of the funds raised from the Chestermere Show and Shine will be donated to the food bank, Easter Seals Horizon Camp, and the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre

The eightieth annual Chestermere Show and Shine brought out over 500 classic and unique vehicles, including a very popular helicopter. This was the first year that the annual show and shine had a helicopter on display, said Event Organizer John Kittler. Photo by Emily Rogers

All of the proceeds raised from the Chestermere Show and Shine are donated to three local charities, including the Chestermere Regional Food Bank, Easter Seals Camp Horizon, which supports Albertans with disabilities and medical conditions, and the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC). “Every dime from this event goes to support those three local charities,” Kittler said. “All of the money raised here goes directly to those charities. Nobody is taking any money out to spend on other things they call business expenses,” he added. Along with donating the funds to the selected charities, watching

roughly 500 classic, and special interest vehicles drive onto the Rec Centre field was a highlight for Kittler. “People came out in droves. It’s amazing the car owners, and the order they came in here,” Kittler said. “There are at least 500 cars in the field, everybody paraded themselves in here and parked nicely,” he said. Without the support of everyone who came to admire the vehicles, the volunteers, and the Chestermere Lakeside Kruzers, the annual show and shine wouldn’t be possible each year. “The Lakeside Kruzers are the ones that give us the horsepower to run this event. If it weren’t for the Lakeside Kruzers volunteers,

I wouldn’t be able to do it,” Kittler said. The Chestermere Show and Shine encourages residents to park beside each other, get to know each other, and build friendships. “This is a great community-building event for Chestermere,” Kittler said. “Chestermere needs to get out and do things that make us a community and not a suburb of Calgary. If we don’t do stuff like this and embrace it, we’re just going to be a Calgary suburb,” he added.


City and Council Briefs Chestermere welcomed City to implement harmonized school and playground speed zone model By Emily Rogers The City of Chestermere will soon adopt the Harmonized School and Playground Speed Zone model. School and playground zones will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. seven days a week throughout the year. “Currently our school zones are in effect from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday to Friday school days only, and our playground zones are in effect from 8:30 a.m. until one hour after sunset every day of the week,” said Peace Officer Sgt. Trever Bowman.  “In the interested in public and pedestrian safety it is proposed that Chestermere change to the Harmonized Speed Zone model and convert all of the existing school zones to playground zones,” Bowman added. There are currently 19 established playground zones in Chestermere, five school zones, four with playgrounds. Although the provincial government specifies the speed limits in the school and playground zones, municipalities have to determine the hours the zones are in effect.  The University of Calgary conducted a traffic study of the Harmonized Speed Zone model which showed that following the implementation of the harmonized zones there was a 30 per cent decrease in pedestrian-related collisions, while the average speed in the zones dropped from 35.9 km/h to 30.1 km/h, Bowman said.  He added, “It is evident that the harmonized model increases public safety by reducing speed, collision-related injuries in the playground zones.”  City Councillor Ritesh Narayan said, “The evidence speaks for itself. Harmonizing speed zones does have a lot of benefits to it.”  Mayor Marshall Chalmers added, “We expect this to come back next council meeting. We won’t have time for the school year but will do the best we can.”  

Council carries motion to replace CUI auditor with city auditor Chestermere City Council carried a motion to replace the current Chestermere Utilities Incorporated (CUI), auditor PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), with the city’s auditor KPMG on Aug 20. “From a legal perspective it does not matter which firm provides auditing services, but from a public relations perspective it may be beneficial to have the city do the audit for the utility,” said the CUI Transitional Manager Rick Quail.  Under the newly adopted the hybrid CUI model, the company will remain its status as a government business enterprise while continuing to require audited financial statement, Quail said.  He added, the audited financial statement is required to provide independent insurance of the financial statements, and present a true view of the company’s financial performance and position.

All city policies to be reviewed Chestermere City Council carried a motion to review all city policies by Dec. 31, 2020, to ensure all policies remain relevant on Aug. 20. “It’s clear that a full review of the policy handbook has not been made in quite some time,” said Policy Assistant Rami Ajjour.  He added, “In fact, looking at records, I could not find an exact time one was done, which means one is needed.”  The ultimate goal of the city policy review is to have a concise and accurate policy handbook regarding regulation and best practices while ensuring the policies fall in line with the city’s new strategic vision.  “I fully support the initiative, said Mayor Marshall Chalmers.

Japanese Consul-General and Consul for Economic Affairs

By Emily Rogers Chestermere welcomed the Japanese ConsulGeneral, Shigenobu Kobayashi during the Aug. 20 council meeting. “We were delighted to welcome Mr. Kobayashi to our lakeside community,” said Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “This is the first time we have had the ConsulGeneral visit our city, and we hope that it marks the beginning of a strong relationship between Chestermere and the Japanese community,” Chalmers said. Kobayashi’s visit to Chestermere began with a welcome from Chalmers and Chestermere Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Bernie Morton and followed with a gift exchange showcasing the relations between Canada and Japan. Both Kobayashi and the Consul for Economic Affairs Noriko Ikeyama, came to Chestermere to meet with officials regarding mutual interest matters, learn about economic opportunities, and to build relationships with stakeholders, said the City of Chestermere Press Release. “2019 marks the 90th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Canada.

August 29,. 2019 // theanchor.ca

This relationship is strengthened through exchanges in many areas, including broader people-to-people contacts. I am delighted to visit this beautiful city, to meet the people who make Chestermere home, and to hold fruitful discussions with Mayor Chalmers,” Kobayashi said. Chalmers acknowledged Kobayashi during the council meeting, which finished the meeting. “We thank Mr. Kobayashi and his delegation for coming to Chestermere today,” Chalmers said. He added, “We recognize the importance of building a strong relationship with our Japanese counterparts, and we were honoured by his visit. We look forward to finding more ways for our communities to build strong ties in the future.” One of the City of Chestermere’s pathways to creating an Amazing Chestermere is the partnership and collaboration in innovative projects, and business models. “We look forward to building a strong relationship,” Chalmers said. He added, “We are excited to see what the future has in store.”

A Chestermere resident A new waste collection system rolling into cycled 200 kilometres Chestermere for the Alberta Cancer The city is moving away from clear plastic garbage bags to black carts Foundation Funds raised from the two-day journey will be used for cancer research, and enhanced cancer therapies

Chestermere resident Naveet Baath cycled 200 kilometers in two-days in support of the eleventh annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer on Aug. 17. Baath raised nearly $2,500 for cancer research, clinical trials, enhanced care, and the discovery of new cancer therapies. Photo submitted by Navneet Baath

By Emily Rogers Chestermere resident of nine years, Navneet Baath raised nearly $2,500 for cancer research during the eleventh annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer on Aug. 17. Baath and her team, Team Shell were among 1,255 participants who raised $5.9 million for the Alberta Cancer Foundation in support of cancer research, clinical trials, enhanced care and the discovery of new cancer therapies by cycling 200 km in two-days. “When I first signed up for it, I didn’t even have a road bike,” Baath said. Although Baath did not have a history of cycling, it was important for her to ride for her aunt who passed away from cancer, and for her friend who was diagnosed with cancer. “I had a friend who was diagnosed with cancer, and I was grieving for her. I saw her struggle with it for two years,” Baath said. “I did it more for her, but over the two years I’ve heard so many stories of people and families that are affected by cancer, it’s evolved,” she said. She added, “When I heard about the ride, I signed up more for personal reasons rather than for biking.” Throughout the two-day journey, Baath heard many cyclists’ stories of their own personal, friends, or family’s cancer journeys. “These days, a lot of conversations we have are so filtered, doing the ride people are so authentic and draw emotions from what they share,” Baath said. “I’m not sure people would share those parts

6

of their life, their grief, and their celebration if it weren’t for the ride,” she said. She added, “There are so many survivors that are riding, you get to hear so many stories. Meeting the people and hearing their stories was the biggest highlight for me.” To prepare for the multiple-day journey, Baath joined an open cycling group that rode from Calaway Park to Bragg Creek on the weekends. “I got to practice riding on the hills,” Baath said. “I was definitely one of the last ones. I was able to ride with them once, and the rest of the time I biked around Chestermere,” she added. Baath had patriated in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer last year. However, riders were unable to finish the ride due to smoke from forest fires. “This was the first year I got to finish it,” Baath said. There was a lot of support throughout the ride from families and volunteers with pit stops every few kilometers. “There is a lot of stress on the fact that it’s not a race, it’s a ride you do at your own pace,” Baath said. “There is so much support. It’s manageable, and you don’t have to be a rider to do it,” she added. If it wasn’t for the ride, and the generosity of people who donated funds in support of the Alberta Cancer Foundation, people close in Baath’s life wouldn’t be able to receive the type of care that they are now. “I’m so thankful for every rider who is riding for their family and our family,” Baath said.

By Emily Rogers

Chestermere City Council carried a motion on Aug. 20 to convert the biweekly garbage collection program from clear plastic bags to 240-litre black bins. The 2019 capital budget includes funding approvals for the conversion of Chestermere’s garbage collection program from manually collected clear plastic bags to mechanically lifted and dumped black bins, said Chestermere Utilities Incorporated (CUI) Transitional Manager Rick Quail. “We did hire operators from other companies who left their employment to come work for the city of Chestermere on the basis that manual garbage collection would cease to exist in three to six months,” said CUI Solid Waste Operations Manager Cam Wong. He added the introduction of the black cart would completely eliminate the risk of operators stepping out of the truck without the chance of slips, trips, physical strains, and exposure to the elements. The introduction of the black cart also offers benefits to Chestermere residents. With the elimination of clear plastic bags, wildlife will not be able to get into the bag, debris won’t be scattered over roadways, privacy concerns will be removed, and residents can safely push the black cart to the curbside. “A specialized truck is no longer required for a cost-benefit, the automated collection reduces the headcount from a two-man operation to a single operator,” Wong said. Currently, the CUI waste collection team is operating with a reduced headcount. Having a lower headcount will help drive down costs, operators can complete their routes quicker which will drive down costs, and the risk of injury is decreased which will drive down the cities claims, and make it safe for workers, said Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), Bernie Morton. A variety of black cart options were considered including the small 120-litre cart, and the extralarge 360-litre cart before deciding the medium

August 29, 2019 // theanchor.ca

240-litre cart would be the best option for residents. While deciding which size of cart would be best for Chestermere residents, the city found out that garbage levels are at 54 to 69 per cent participation biweekly. “The challenge of this is they are not putting their garbage on the street, but it’s going somewhere,” Wong said. On average, the blue bin has 30 to 40 per cent of refuse in the cart, while the green bin has 25 to 40 per cent of refuse in the cart. “In order to educate residents on effective curbside sorting and reduce contamination, the city does need to provide an appropriately sized cart,” Wong said. He added, “To ensure the protection of our workers, excessive garbage that won’t fit in the cart, won’t be collected.” Being as environmentally aware as possible is important for the City of Chestermere, Morton said. Internally, the city is working on new and improved better practices in the local waste stream. “This I believe is a step in the right direction, moving to a cart program rather than a bag,” Morton said. “At this point in time, education is the key. We’re appealing to the good nature of people so that we can lower their rates, which is a high design for us,” Morton said. “We’re saying just be responsible and put the proper things in the bin because the outcome means lower rates,” he added. Chestermere City Councillor Yvette Wagner disagreed that the black bins were the best option for residents. “People are more accountable when they have to use those see-through bags, and the garbage suddenly doesn’t get picked up because they can see the contamination in it,” Wagner said. “The community wants lower rates, play the game and put the right stuff in the right carts, and we won’t get tagged,” Mayor Marshall Chalmers said.


Over two tons of food collected during annual Pack the Patrol Car The annual event helped fill the Chestermere Regional Food Bank shelves for the upcoming school year By Emily Rogers

The second annual Pack the Patrol Car, raised over two tons of food for the Chestermere Regional Food Bank on Aug 17. “With the support of our great community Pack the PC 2019 was a huge success,” said Pack the PC Event Coordinator, and Chestermere Peace Officer Shawn Press. From 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., shoppers were met by Chestermere Reginal Food Bank volunteers and municipal enforcement who were handing out shopping lists of needed items outside of Safeway. “With the back to school season upon us and the holiday season right around the corner, this is a critical time of year for the Chestermere Regional Food Bank,” Press said. He added, “We are proud to support this local charity.” Although Pack the PC had a successful year, changes were made to the event following the inaugural year. Last year, fire fighters were on top of the Safeway building until the patrol car was filled with food donations. “Last year we ran into poor air quality from the forest fires, it didn’t work out as well as we hoped last year,” Press said. This year, firefighters did not go on top of the Safeway building, but instead, everyone was grounded and able to interact with local shoppers. Despite the changes to the event, collecting food and cash donations, and spending time with the community were highlights for Press. “We are now being recognized. It’s nice to see that community connection. Everybody realizes that this is a big part of what we’re

about and that we’re out trying to give back to the community in a completely different way,” Press said. “We are supporting and doing our best with these events and having a good time while we’re doing it,” he added. Without the support of local shoppers, everyone who donated food or cash, and Safeway, Pack the PC wouldn’t have been possible. “It was really awesome to see families come out, not only to do their shopping but specifically for the event, this was something they were looking forward to this year,” Press said.

Provincial News Chestermere.Strathmore@assembly.ab.ca

Hello Chestermere Readers! First of all, a big shout out to the over 300 of you who shelled out $10 each to sponsor a duck in Synergy’s “Bucks For Ducks” obstacle course at Camp Chestermere. This money goes directly to support Synergy’s youth programs. Kudos to Hannah and the rest of the Synergy team for organizing the fun (and messy) challenges. I had a great time getting soaked and sandy as one of the racers. Next year, I’m practicing beforehand! As we head into the fall, I hope you had a chance to spend some time with your family and friends on the few days of actual summer we had this year. It has certainly been a wet and cool one, so hopefully we will have some lovely days in September. Have you ever used one of the food apps before like “Skip the Dishes”, “Uber Eats” or others? We are seeing life become more “on demand” and as demand increases, the more convenience we will demand. Did you know that protocols for high schools have had to change because of the numbers of orders that are being made by school aged kids that use these food apps? It is instant and it is easy and it is changing the way we live our lives. Look at the article from the Financial Post called “Anticipating the future of on-demand delivery” by Mark Shelling. The numbers in sales will really surprise you, and it is through these Apps that people have many things at their fingertips. Let’s speak a moment about Cannabis. This is another sector that is growing-no pun intendedat warp speed, and some market watchers are claiming that CBD sales will reach as high as $22 billion in sales in the next few years (Financial Post - “Why the CBD market is booming” by Meher Ally). The article goes on to say that in the United States, when the Agriculture Improvement Act was passed which in essence legalized hemp and hemp products for use in the medical field, the idea of alternative medicine really resonated with many people, especially those who are suffering with epilepsy, and the associated seizures, pain management and many other impacts. In a world where opioids are taking our friends and family, and where chronic pain is being managed with drugs that can create severe addictions, we have to look at alternative methods to treat pain and increasing quality of life. It is an interesting article to read. A word of warning though. Carrying CBD oil or other cannabis products can still get you denied entry or even banned for life from the United States ( https://www.thegrowthop.com/cannabis-news/ canadian-may-be-banned-for-life-from-u-s-afterattempt-to-cross-border-with-cbd-oil ). Finally, I have been watching the Trudeau saga play out, and if this was not real, and if it was not impacting the country I love so much, I could almost laugh, and I would probably binge watch this drama on NETFLIX, but is not a drama, and this Prime Minister is playing with our lives and our well-being for real. The Ethics Commissioner of Canada is an independent office. This person administers the Conflict of Interest Act and the Code for our Federal government. It was

10

brought forward as part of the Federal Accountability Act in 2007 under PM Stephen Harper. Our present commissioner is Mario Dion. A set of obligations is set out for both for the Conflict of Interest Act and the Code that provide insight into prohibited activities that may involve conflicts interest. This office belongs to Parliament, not any particular Minister, the Federal Government or the Prime Minister. This assures independence, and is key to ethical government. MLAs here in Alberta have similar rules. One of the many reasons this is necessary is to ensure that politicians don’t spend public money to help themselves, their relatives or friends. This forces us to recuse ourselves from discussions that could put us into a situation where we could see material benefit. This is what happened when Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau was holding assets outside a blind trust, and continues to do so as a loophole in Canada’s ethics law allows Federal Ministers to own mutual funds without disclosing them. And then there is our current Prime Minister. “No Prime Minister has ever been found guilty of violating ethics laws until Justin Trudeau offended twice” (Toronto Sun, Aug 22 -Oliver: Trudeau’s latest ethical breach may be his https://torontosun.com/opinion/ columnists/oliver-trudeaus-latest-ethical-breachmay-be-his-last ). The question burning for most of us is has he actually committed a crime? Is this why he is not calling the election and instead campaigning on tax payer dollars (sounds eerily reminiscent of Ms. Notley’s last campaign doesn’t it?) The Prime Minister pleaded that is was for jobs! Well if that was the case why has he destroyed 63,000 jobs in the oil and gas sector in Eastern Canada by destroying Energy East, the “No More Pipelines” bill C-69, and the “Oil Tankers Are OK Unless They Are Carrying Alberta Oil” bill C-48. Both these bills are now law and will hurt Canada’s economy. SNC-Lavalin’s jobs would have gone to another business, and we know this. A Prime Minister is not above the law, and if the RCMP launch an investigation, we will find out if there was an obstruction of justice. In the meantime, what needs to change so that government is not above the people in the country that they are privileged to represent? How do we stop efforts by a Prime Minister to discredit public prosecutors, and more importantly to attempt to influence the Crowns own litigator, Ms. Wilson-Raybould. This lacks integrity, ethics, and any genuine understanding of the privilege that comes with being the leader of the best country in the world! The question that all Canadians should be asking themselves is “Does Trudeau deserve to be re-elected?” I know how I feel, and I will be out door knocking. I would also like to thank the amazing folks of Chestermere-Strathmore for their patience with us as we set up our offices. We will be serving you in Chestermere at the Synergy building, in Langdon and in Strathmore. Please call 403207-9889 for an appointment as quite often staff are out and about in the riding helping our constituents. As always we love to hear from you.

Rum Dinger Always looking for the opportunity to enjoy a night out with my regular posse of drinking companions, I gathered them all together last week, for the 3rd annual National Rum Day celebrations. I could not determine which of the big distillers came up with the idea that Rum needed its own national day of celebration, but not being the type to look a gift horse in the mouth, I made haste to the local cocktail bar to enjoy the festivities. The history of rum goes back to the year 1620, when a plantation worker on the Caribbean island of Martinique was toiling in the hot sun for the French overlords that ruled the island. The plantation worker was tasked with gathering up the waste products of the sugar cane harvest, namely a syrupy liquid called molasses, that was typically fed to the local cattle. After tasting a bit of molasses that had fermented in the sun, a new industry was born, and the sugar plantations could now turn their waste product into liquid gold. Rum is now one of the major exports of several Caribbean islands, and is enjoyed all over the world. Rum is produced by adding yeast to molasses in order to ferment the sugar content into alcohol, which takes as little as a day or two. This produces a liquid with a strength of only 10% ABV, which is then distilled into the spirit we all know and love. Distilleries quickly appeared on every island with a sugar cane plantation, and the Caribbean is still home to the oldest rum distiller in the world, namely Mount Gay, which opened its doors in 1705, and is still going strong. Interestingly, sugar cane is not native to the Caribbean, but made its way from its ancestral home of Southern Asia to the Mediterranean via Arab traders in the 8th century, and eventually made its way to the New World in the 1490s by way of Christopher Columbus while in service of the Spanish crown. After the rum is distilled to approximately 40% alcohol by volume, it is aged in oak barrels that once held whiskey to give it a more elegant taste. While aging in the oak barrels, the rum changes

August 29, 2019 // theanchor.ca

from its naturally clear hue to a golden brown. Rum can be aged in the barrel for as little as one year, or as long as thirty. However, once the rum is removed from the barrel and bottled for sale, the effects of aging pretty much stop. Unlike red wines, rum does not improve with age in the bottle, so don’t worry about drinking a bottle of rum before its time. The three basic of rum are white, dark, and spiced, although countless variations exist for each style. Despite coming from a dark liquid molasses, the distillate produced in the still is crystal clear, and later turns a golden or caramel colour from extended contact with the oak barrels used in the aging process. If a distiller wants to produce a white rum, it will be filtered through charcoal to remove the colour that was picked up from the oak barrels, leaving it with a lighter-bodied subtle taste. These are typically the younger and less expensive rums, so are popular in mixed drinks like the Cuba Libre or Mojito. Dark rums are the broadest category, as they include all rums that have not been filtered to remove the colour from the oak barrels, and there are many subtle variations in darkness and flavour. Dark rums can vary from a light golden hue to the deepest black, and every shade in between. The very darkest and richest rums are sometimes called Black Rums, and typically are aged in barrels that have been heavily charred to impart extra flavours into the spirit. As a general rule, the darker the rum, the longer it has been aged in oak, and will have more intense flavours of vanilla, smoke, tobacco, and the like. Rum is typically consumed with a sweet cola or tropical juice mixer like Pina Coladas, which is typically how I enjoy the white rums. Mediumdark rums are usually enjoyed with a coke and maybe a bit of lime juice, while the darkest, richest rums are best consumed straight-up, without any mixer.

PAWS for Thought

Steve King is the President of Community Therapy Dogs Society email: info@ctds.ca

Review so far Well this is my 60th article since the first one appeared on July 19th 2018: yes, I’ve surprised myself on how many dog- related topics you can find if you think outside the box! But when I sit back and think about it, all it tells me is that dogs are a lot more complex and interesting than you first imagine. From the goofy games they play to the unconditional love they give to humans, I have come to appreciate dogs in the last few years more than I thought possible. And I also understand now that, as with humans, all dogs have their own personalities: there is no such thing as a “normal” or “standard” dog. For those of us who have had a number of dogs over the years, we have all experienced the joy of bringing a new dog home, whether from a rescue organization or a breeder, and the utter sadness of losing a dog, either through old age or through accident or illness. I will never forget the feeling of desperate grief when, the day after your dog has passed, you get home, call out for your dog to come and have to remind yourself that the welcome you’re used to seeing is now a thing of the past. On a more upbeat note, working with both service dogs and therapy dogs has shown me the immense capabilities that dogs have to add value to our lives. Dogs’ ability and intelligence to learn a huge variety of skills is impressive and, unlike trying to motivate a teenager to study and want to learn, dogs lap it up (pun intended!). You rarely find a happier dog than a service dog, despite the endless hours of repetitive training they go through. When I first started studying dogs, the psychology of dogs in particular piqued my interest. A question beginning with “why” forever came up in my mind. And the evolution of dogs from their ancestor the wolf through to today’s domesticated pets is a fascinating study. Whatever twists and turns took place to produce the dogs we know today, I am just so grateful for the end result. A number of people have contacted me after reading the previous 59 articles and I thank you for that. Please keep the feedback coming and if there are topics you’d like me to delve into, I’ll try my best to accommodate your requests. In addition to broadening my own mind, I’ve tried to present topics in a way which makes you consider an alternative point of view or give you facts you may not be aware of. I will continue to do so. A while ago, I stumbled over a beautiful 2 minute youtube video called “God made a dog” which sums up what dogs are all about. If you’ve not seen it, take 5 and enjoy this tribute to man’s best friend. Thank you for all your support!

When the Neighbours Sing My grandfather was a farmer in Saskatchewan who learned by ear to play foot stomping tunes on his violin. Grandpa and his friends would often gather at the community hall to play for country dances and special events. I remember that he could not do it alone, he needed my grandma to get going. He’d say, “How does that tune go again, dear? You know, the one that goes dumda-daaah. I can’t remember how it starts.” A moment later, with a little encouragement from grandma, he would find his first note and away he would go. His music was a gift to his community. Music has a way of connecting neighbours together. People, for millennia, have gathered to sing and play music around fires and after meals. Music tells stories, it comforts, it celebrates, and it forms bonds between people and across generations. Ella Fitzgerald said that “music is the universal language, it brings people together.” As I discover the ways that my street is my home base, my living room, and the gathering place for community, I am learning to listen for the music of my neighbourhood, too. When our neighbours gather to jam in their basement and the music leaks out into our neighbourhood, I’m grateful. When my daughters sing at the top of their lungs and our windows are open, I wonder what our neighbours must think. I think they probably smile, too. Music is a sign of life. In Chicago, neighbours have taken music out onto their front porches. They have organized “a pop-up concert series set on front porches throughout Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods.” Their “goal is to create a unique live music experience while building community and promoting city exploration.” Imagine hearing the sounds of music coming from your neighbour’s home and gathering around to listen in. It’s a vision for community that is both new and exciting, and yet takes us back to a time when shared music was central to community life. As a pastor I experience music every Sunday as we gather for worship. It is not lost on me that it is a strange thing in this day and age to gather and sing corporately. Yet this odd practice is becoming something more, it is rebuilding culture and roots us in loving community. In a time of isolation and independence, music draws us together in a life of interdependence. When musicians gather to play, when kids dance, and hope is found, we know that something beyond music is at work. Beethoven said that “music is indeed the mediator between the spiritual life and the sensual life.” We make sense of the day-to-day stuff of life through music. It helps us see our world, and each other, in surprising ways. Whether you play the violin, sing in the shower, worship corporately, or jam in your basement, you are welcome to make music in your community. May your neighbourhood be a place where kids sing Disney song and where we dust off our old record players. May you hear the ways that your street is alive next time you hear the neighbours sing.

Habitual Offender Program results in community crime reduction

RCMP are monitoring habitual offenders and persons of interest in the community By Emily Rogers

12

Chestermere RCMP is working to reduce crime in the community by continuing to monitor habitual offenders and persons of interest. The Chestermere RCMP’s goal is to reduce crimes in the area by 10 per cent using strategies and programs such as the Habitual Offender Management, Persons of Interest, Voluntary Registry of Home Surveillance, and the Chestermere Theft Prevention Program. “Our core programs have been successful,” said Chestermere S/ Sgt. Mark Wielgosz while presenting the RCMP Quarter 1 Report to Council on Aug. 20. “Our first goal of the year remains a reduction of property crimes, especially theft from motor vehicles, theft of vehicles, and break and enters,” he added. Persons who have a high impact in the community from the crimes they have committed, the seriousness of the crimes, and the likelihood of reoffending have been selected for the Habitual Offender Program, in which they are regularly monitored by Chestermere RCMP. Currently, two habitual offenders have been selected. “One resides in Chestermere, we have initiated checks on the person who has so far remained compliant, which was something we were happy to see,” Wielgosz said. He added, “Our second offender is currently incarcerated, and we are continually monitoring when that person will be released.” Chestermere RCMP expect that the habitual offender will reside in the community and will be a person they pay special attention too, to ensure they remain a law-abiding citizen. Chestermere RCMP are also continuing to monitor persons of interest in the community who have been involved in organized crime, have been on parole, probation, or an interim release. “Our overall goal is to let them know we are aware of their presence here, and we’re here to assist them in maintaining a lawabiding lifestyle,” Wielgosz said. “We are currently motoring 15 persons of interest,” he said. To ensure Chestermere remains a safe community, RCMP are partnering with the Calgary Police Gang Suppression Team (GST), which will increase detection of any individuals involved in organized crimes. Calgary based gang members and associates have been observed in the surrounding area at licensed premises on an increasing basis, Wielgosz said. To reduce property crime, Chestermere RCMP encourages residents to become involved in the Voluntary Registry of Home Surveillance. “We have had success with this program in the past, but it is difficult to see participation,” Wielgosz said. “Our goal is not to be big brother. Our goal is to help identify persons involved in crime, speed up the response time we have in respect to apprehending the individuals, preventing further crimes, and recovering property for a person in our community as quickly as possible,” he added. Along with the Voluntary Registry of Home Surveillance program, the Chestermere Citizens on Patrol (CCOP) group are working towards preventing crime within Chestermere by patrolling areas of the community on foot to ensure vehicles are locked and secure. Any vehicles that are found to be insecure will have informative pamphlets left behind on the seat, and a CCOP member will lock August 29, 2019 // theanchor.ca

the vehicle. If a vehicle is found running and insecure, the member will knock on the resident’s door to provide preventative information. “A total of 218 vehicles were checked, 19 were found insecure,” Wielgosz said. RCMP have seen a reduction of break and enters from 21 to 16, theft of motor vehicles remains unchanged at 14, while theft from motor vehicles was reduced from 73 to 21. “Main drivers of these reductions involved the successful delivery of the habitual offender and persons of interesting motoring programs,” Wielgosz said. “A high percentage of crimes remain preventable. Public education has a priority to increase awareness of crime prevention activities, such as the 9 p.m. routine and the Lock it or Lose it program,” he said. Adding, “If residents can make it part of their regular routine, I believe we would see even further reductions of crimes in these areas.” However, theft of license plates is problematic for Chestermere RCMP, as property criminals will often steal license plates in an attempt to prevent detection while in the possession of stolen vehicles. To prevent the theft of license plates, a License Plate Security Screw Program will be launching in which security screws will be available to Chestermere residents. Once the program launches, residents can collect security screws from the Chestermere RCMP detachment, crime prevention tables at community events, and in partnership with local groups such as CCOP and the Police Communications Committee. Along with programs and initiatives, the Chestermere RCMP are also present at schools, doing class presentations, facilitating high school CALM classes, participating in lockdown drills, positive ticketing, school sports events, drug awareness, cyber and antibullying educational sessions, and traffic safety. There continues to be a low level of injury collisions in Chestermere, Wielgosz said. “We are seeking reductions, but if we can maintain the already low levels that would be very positive for our community,” he added. “We can achieve those goals through impaired driving enforcement.” There have been 76 enhanced shifts completed which produced 1,428 total infractions, where 1,321 drivers were issued violations, 970 of the violations were for speed “We’re seeing a high degree of compliance with our residents,” Wielgosz said.


Local BMX athlete makes finals at Pan Am games The Chestermere athlete was honoured to compete for Canada By Emily Rogers Local BMX athlete, Daina Tuchscherer, 22, is proud of how she performed during the 2019 Pan American (Pan Am) Games in Lima Peru. “It went well, but I kind of messed up my final,” Tuchscherer said. “I was still pretty happy to make it because I’ve never made the final at a game, that was pretty cool,” she added. Although Tuchscherer didn’t have the best start to the finals and got stuck in the pack, she was happy with how she raced and was excited to make a final. “It was my best finish so far,” Tuchscherer said. To prepare for the 2019 Pan Am Games, Tuchscherer continually trained on the track by doing sprints, or lifting heavyweights in the gym while competing in world cups, and the world championship in Belgium. Prior to the Pan Am race, Tuchscherer had three-days of practice before the timed trails and then the final race. “The racing leading up to the final went well, I felt really good on the track, comfortable and pretty confident with myself,” Tuchscherer said. For Tuchscherer, preparing mentally for competitions is just as important as preparing physically. To ensure Tuchscherer is ready to compete, she often writes her goals and any milestones she wants to hit in a journal while staying relaxed the day before a competition. “We’re in the gate with eight other people, I don’t want to get too anxious, or I will make mistakes. I just try to keep myself relaxed,” Tuchscherer said. “The day before I try to keep my mind off of things and keep it lighter so come race day, I’m not too nervous,” she said. Adding, “I try to think positively and take it one race at a time. Competing, I know I’ve done everything I can, I’ve worked as hard

as I can, and I’m going to do the best I can. I just go in thinking there’s nothing else I could have done and that I’m ready.” Going into the Pan Am Games for the second time, Tuchscherer felt more confident in her ability to compete as she has grown as an athlete. “Having already participated in Local BMX athlete Daina Tuchscherer made the finals in the games and being older, I’m more developed, and I had a better the 2019 Pan American Games. chance at these games than I did Tuchscherer was proud of the at last one,” Tuchscherer said. way she competed, as this was the “I knew a lot more, I’ve first time she has made the finals. had more time for personal Currently, Tuchscherer is prepardevelopment, and I felt more ing for two world cups, and then confident going in than I did at Olympic testing. Photo submitted last games,” she added. A highlight from the 2019 Pan by Daina Tuchscherer Am Games for Tuchscherer was having her parents in the crowd watching her and cheering her on. “I was pretty excited. My parents were there watching, that was really awesome to have them there. It was my mom’s first time watching me at the games,” Tuchscherer said. Along with having her family watching her compete, having the opportunity to wear the Team Canada jersey is always special for Tuchscherer. “I’m always honoured to wear the maple leaf jersey and to compete for Canada,” Tuchscherer said. She added, “You feel a part of your country.” Moving forward, Tuchscherer is now preparing for two world cups, and then an Olympic testing event in Tokyo.

Martin Shields MP Bow River

Federal News

You’ve likely heard about the Ethics Commissioner’s recent report on the SNC Lavalin scandal. It confirmed beyond a doubt what we already knew – the Prime Minister acted unethically and broke the law. The report clearly outlines how ‘the authority of the Prime Minister and his office was used to circumvent, undermine, and ultimately discredit,’ former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. The Prime Minister grossly abused his authority help a major corporation avoid legal consequences – and he has tried to cover up his actions ever since. Trudeau simply never hesitates to help his powerful and well-connected friends get ahead. Meanwhile, everyday Canadians are falling behind. Last week, during an emergency sitting of the Ethics Committee, Liberal MPs had an opportunity to do the right thing and shine a light on the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal. At the very least, they could have heard testimony from the Ethics Commissioner – he was ready to testify at a moment’s notice. Instead, the Liberals used their majority on the committee to shut down any further investigation. They covered up the truth. They are now complicit in Trudeau’s political interference in SNC’s criminal prosecution. In 2015, Justin Trudeau promised he would be ethical and accountable. And every day since then, he has proven that he is not as advertised. Time and time again, he has abused the power of his office to reward his friends and punish his critics. As last week’s shameful display at the Ethics Committee demonstrated, Trudeau has the support of his Liberal caucus. They truly believe he did nothing wrong. These are the same old entitled, scandal-ridden Liberals Canadians know all too well. They simply don’t think the rules apply to them. Now, with the election fast-approaching, the final verdict rests with Canadians. I think it’s time for a new Conservative government that will help hardworking Canadians get ahead.

Make the transition Is your next move senior living or aging in place? to high school easier

Over the course of an academic career, the average student switches schools three to four times. Elementary school gives way to middle school or junior high. From there, students will transition to high school. If a student chooses to keep their academic journey going after high school, college or trade school awaits. Adolescence is a transitional period when many students may be learning how to make decisions and taking their first significant steps toward becoming independent adults. That can make the transition from middle school to high school more complicated than previous transitional periods young people experienced. Several changes take place in high school that can impact studentsÕ anxiety levels. ¥ Students go from being the oldest in middle school to the youngest in high school. ¥ The student body population typically increases dramatically. ¥ Curriculum becomes more demanding than it was in middle school. ¥ School hours change, often requiring students to wake up earlier. ¥ A new school may mean students are funneling in from different feeder schools. Long-time friends may be separated depending on where they ultimately choose to go to high school. A 2016 survey from the Pew Research Center found that 70 percent of teens say anxiety and depression are a Òmajor problemÓ among their

18

peers. To help make high school a positive experience and less likely to induce anxiety, students and their parents can employ these tips. ¥ Establish a consistent routine. The education resource CollegeVine advises students to build good study habits, create a calm and organized homework environment and focus on studies while keeping distractions at bay. ¥ Encourage extracurricular activities. Activities outside of the classroom are a great way for students to make friends and involve themselves socially with their peers. Such extracurriculars can lead to strong friendships that flourish throughout high school and beyond. ¥ Buddy up. Just as they might have done upon entering kindergarten, students on the cusp of starting high school can find someone who will be attending the same school and go over schedules and potential meet-up times. They can make plans to sit together at lunch as they both get acclimated to their new environments. ¥ Attend open houses. Families can tour the campus to get a feel for the layout of their childrenÕs school. Ask for a map of the school grounds so students can get an idea of where their schedules will require them to be throughout the course of the day. The transition to high school is a significant one in the life of a teenager. Families can employ various strategies to make that transition go smoothly.

(NC) As our senior population continues to grow, many Canadians will have to make a series of decisions. Among the most crucial is living arrangements. These conversations aren’t easy, but they are essential for ensuring ongoing quality of life. “It’s important that families come together well ahead of time to discuss major choices for later in life and end of life, and this includes making plans for senior living that address all factors,” says Justin Schultz, funeral home director at Arbor Memorial, a national funeral and cemetery services company. “These candid conversations will allow everyone involved to feel that their opinions are being considered and heard.” When creating this long-term living plan, there are some things to keep in mind. Know your options. Consider the type of care that will be needed. Retirement, nursing and long-term care homes offer various levels of care and support, not to mention an array of options for accommodations and activities. Weigh these choices to ensure you’re making the best deci-

sion for your family. Evaluate all services. Whether it’s a retirement or nursing home, consider all services available and whether there will be a need to make another transition in the future if health or mobility changes. Think about lifestyle changes. Maintain an open and honest dialogue with everyone involved to help make things easier if it becomes necessary to make a change. Whether it’s aging in place with added home care or moving to an assisted living facility, always consider health, wellness and safety. Think about both current and future lifestyle needs to reduce the need to make multiple moves. Active listening is important when having conversations about a long-term living plan to ensure options are understood by all. Remember, this could be a difficult or unwelcome change in a loved one’s life. Being an advocate can do a great deal to ease the transition. Having a long-term living plan and advance care plan in place will ensure all wants, needs, budgets and concerns can be considered so everyone involved is ready for the future.


Anchor’s Side Dish Recipes From our Tastiest Kitchens Tropical tasting dessert an entertaining hit the

What could make a long day sitting by the pool or an afternoon at the beach even better? A dessert reminiscent of a tropical island, of course. Pineapple and coconut are two flavors that evoke Caribbean shores with steel drum bands playing in the background and salty seas on the horizon. Pineapple upside down cake is a familiar dessert classic on which people can put their own unique spins. With this recipe from Vegan Cooking for Beginners(Publications International) by PIL editors, vegan dessert guests can also enjoy the fare thanks to vegan-friendly ingredients.

1 1/2 1

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9-inch round baking pan. For topping, cook and stir brown sugar and buttery spread in medium skillet over medium heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Pour into prepared pan. Arrange pineapple slices in pan, placing cherries in centers of pineapples. Combine boiling water and flaxseed in small bowl. Let stand until cool. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Whisk granulated sugar, oil and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Whisk in flaxseed mixture. Stir in flour mixture just until moistened. Stir in coconut milk just until blended. Place baking soda in small cup; stir in vinegar. Gently stir vinegar into batter just until blended. Pour batter over pineapple. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Run thin knife around edge of pan to loosen cake. Invert onto serving plate. Cool completely. Note: The cake can also be baked in a 12-inch castiron skillet. Melt the buttery spread and brown sugar in the skillet, add the pineapple and cherries and pour the batter over the fruit. Check the cake for doneness at 40 minutes.
