Chestermere shows their support for the Humboldt Broncos tragedy By Jeremy Broadfield

The Humboldt Broncos tragedy has reached across the country uniting people in support of the families and friends affected by the terrible crash. The tragedy struck a particular chord with staff and students at St. Gabriel The Archangel School and the hockey program offered there.

“We’ve got families just like the Humboldt Broncos families in this very building that live and breathe hockey every day that’s their lives,” said Principal Robert Miller. Students were asked to bring their hockey sticks to school for the #sticksoutforhumboldt social media trend in support of the Humboldt Broncos. “We asked those

students to bring in hockey sticks to show support for the Humboldt families,” said Miller. “We’ve put our sticks out for Humboldt and we then brought all 550 students outside and we did a moment of silence followed by a prayer for the families,” he said. The school had close to 40 hockey sticks placed at the front of

the school. Miller said that it’s important to support the families and those affected by the crash because this tragedy could happen anywhere in Canada. There are students in the hockey program at St. Gabriel The Archangel School who are the same age as those who died in the collision. “It was important for us to recognize and

understand that these folks need our support and that we come together as a community. “Not only as a school community but as a Canadian community to support these families as they deal with this horrible tragedy,” said Miller. In addition to showing their support for #sticksoutforhumboldt, the school also is collecting the

equivalent of $1 per student to donate in support of the families. The schools show of support comes alongside support from across Chestermere. Sticks could be seen across the city including in front of the fire hall and in the city’s public flower planters showing Chestermere’s support for Humboldt.

Dancing For The Dogs

Dance for dreams see’s over $600 raised for Chestermere Therapy Dogs By Jeremy Broadfield

More than 85 kids from Abstract Dance Academy here in Chestermere helped to raise over $600 for the Chestermere Therapy Dogs Society. The funds were raised at the Dance for Dreams charity dance competition held in Medicine Hat April 6-9. The dancers from Chestermere represented one of six different studios from across the province that competed. “The dancers were excited raising money for Chestermere therapy dog society,” said parent Tina

Stockburger whose daughter has been dancing for 11 years. “Most dancers at school in Chestermere have seen the dogs in their schools one time or another,” she said. While dance the top three dance groups from each competing studio made it to a dance off final on April 9 to determine the winners, each studio did bring home money for their chosen charities. “It was a great for Abstract Dance Academy to be a part of this competition and so positive and fun for the dancers and their families,” said Stockburger.

This was the fourth year that dancers from Abstract have gone to the Dance for Dreams competition. In previous years they have danced to support Make a Wish Foundation, Kids Help phone, and the Chestermere Food Bank. This year the therapy dogs were chosen in part because of the work the kids see the dogs doing in their schools. “They have wonderful programs at the schools in Chestermere,” said Stockburger. The money for charity is raised through the registration and admission fees for the weekend competition.

Group to perform at most easterly point of North America on Canada Day

Water Heater Repair and Replacement Furnace Repair and Replacement Repairs to Water and Drain Lines New Gas Lines for Barbecues and Stoves Plumbing Showroom

WWW.BENNERPLUMBING.COM

By Shaun Fisk At the end of June, the Chestermere Soundwaves will be going on a trip to Newfoundland to perform. The Soundwaves will be flying out to Newfoundland on June 28 with the bulk of the group staying there until July 5. The group will have multiple performances including a performance of O Canada on the most easterly point of North America, Cape Spear, on Canada day. “We’re performing a harmonized version of O’ Canada at Cape Spear, which is the most Easterly point of North America actually,” said Rideout. Other performances will include singing at a church and an open mic style performance at O’Reilly’s pub on George Street in St. Johns. Rideout said the trip for the singing group is for multiple reasons. Primarily they are looking to experiencing east coast culture, being able to travel as a group and being

able to do some team building. “It’s more to just experience the east coast culture and travel as a group in more sort of a team-building thing,” she said. The group has covered their travel costs but is fundraising for accommodations while they are in Newfoundland. The Chestermere Soundwaves will be holding a spring fling gala on April 28 at the White Cappers centre. The gala will include a dinner and dance, and a silent auction where all the proceeds will be going towards their costs. The dinner will include Barbeque chicken and ribs, and there will also be a bar at the event. “We were calling it our spring fling gala, which is kind of a dinner, dance and silent auction,” said Rideout. The tickets are $40 and Rideout said that they were selling out pretty fast, having only limited tickets left. The Chestermere Soundwaves have been together

for eight years and are mainly consisted of people aged 50 years and older. The goal of the choir is to spread goodwill across the community and wherever they can go. The styles of music they do can vary depending on the performance, what the occasion is, and other factors. Songs they have performed include older ones like five foot two, current pop songs, Irish songs, Christmas songs, and love songs. “Whatever the occasion warrants I guess,” said Rideout. They have performed at Christmas parties, nursing homes in Strathmore, done music therapy at Care West, which is a part of the Rockyview Hospital. The Soundwaves don’t get paid for their performances, instead, they do them on a volunteer basis. “If people wanted us to sing for a particular event they would just be able to contact us and we’d be happy to do that,” said Rideout.

NDP looking to strengthen emergency response in the province

Changes to improve collaboration amongst responders during an emergency By Jeremy Broadfield Alberta’s NDP government has proposed amendments to the Emergency Management Act to help communities in the province better cope with disasters. The move comes as the province has seen an increase in the number of natural disasters over the past 10 years. “In the face of past disasters our first responders have shown courage and bravery and our municipalities have pulled together to respond. “The best way to protect Albertans from disasters is to be sure all of us are better prepared,” said Alberta Minister of Municipal Affairs Shaye Anderson.

The bill will be debated in the fall legislative session. In the meantime, the government plans to consult with Albertans about the proposed changes to the act. “I look forward to consulting on these proposed changes with the emergency management community to ensure that all levels of government are working together to protect Albertans,” said Anderson. One of the proposed changes would allow for the creation of a new Local Authority Emergency Management Regulation which would provide a clear process and direction for municipalities to follow in their emergency management planning. The Local Authority

Emergency Management Regulation would give additional direction to municipalities in regard to the training requirements for responders, local emergency management plans and will require the use of the Incident Command System in an emergency. The regulation, if passed, will also promote regional collaboration in responding to an emergency. Consultations on the proposed bill are scheduled to begin in June and will see the government seek feedback from stakeholders including first responders, municipal directors of emergency management, local elected officials, and Metis and First Nations communities.

Chestermere RCMP are again reminding residents to, “lock it or lose it,” after police responded to a rash of stolen cars April 13. Four cars were stolen between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. April 13, three from the West Chestermere area and one from The Cove. “In all four instances vehicles were left running unlocked and unattended in driveways,” said Chestermere RCMP Detachment Commander Staff Sgt. Mark Wielgosz. He described the thefts as preventable, “crimes of opportunity.” Wielgosz said that Chestermere is a safe community but that the city isn’t immune from criminals looking for easy opportunities. “By leaving vehicles or even property inse-

cure or unattended or valuables in plain site is only attracting these types of individuals and its only making it easier for them to perpetrate their crimes,” said Wielgosz. He said that the message is simple, lock it or lose it. “Simply locking your vehicles, lock your homes removing valuables from site would go a very long way with helping us to take a bite out of crime here in Chestermere,” said Wielgosz. Police are continuing to investigate the four auto thefts. “All four vehicles are, of course, entered on our police database,” said Wielgosz, “so if they are encountered by any police officer across Canada they’ll be certainly recovered.”

Chestermere Therapy Dogs rebrand after AGM Charity group continuing to grow in the region By Shaun Fisk The Community Therapy Dogs, formerly known as the Chestermere Therapy Dogs, have held their annual AGM on April 9 in the Chestermere public library. The organization reported they have seen some growth to their program by going from a presence in 14 schools to gaining presence in 27 schools. They have also gained a greater presence in Airdrie and a new presence in Carstairs and Cochrane. Other growth to the Community Therapy Dogs includes volunteers, dogs, and events being held by them. The organization also held their first volunteer appreciation evening. The evening included dinner, music and speeches from various people within the organization. The Community Therapy

Dogs is an organization that was born out of a vision to help improve lives with therapy dogs. “Chestermere Therapy Dogs Society (CTDS) was born out of a vision to help people add value to their lives through association with therapy dogs,” said their website. The organization was founded in 2013 and was effective on December 30, 2013. The first organization, Listening Tails, started soon after providing an opportunity for kids to gain confidence by reading to dogs so they wouldn’t have a fear of judgement. They then started their second program, Visiting Tails, soon after on March 26, 2013, just eight days after Listening Tails started. Visiting Tails is a program that allows old folks and people who need visits a chance to get a visit from dogs.

They then started their third program Caring Tails a bit later in the January of 2015 with a visit to Chestermere High School to help students cope with stress and anxiety they may face. The programs and support for the organization have only grown with them as they now reach other areas outside of Chestermere, hence the change from Chestermere Therapy Dogs to Community Therapy Dogs.

Humboldt Strong donuts help to support victims of the tragic bus crash By Shaun Fisk Sales of the Humboldt Strong doughnuts have been booming since Chestermere Tim Hortons started selling them on Monday April 9 in support of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. Andrew Marriott said on the first day they sold over 1000 of the doughnuts and all the proceeds from the doughnuts will be going to the Humboldt Broncos team. “I never thought we would sell this many,” said Marriott. Since the start of selling the doughnuts he said they have sold around a thousand doughnuts each day the fundraiser has gone on. Marriott said the Chestermere and Langdon Oilmens have donated for another 1000 doughnuts to be given out sequentially. He said this tragedy hit

home for him because his wife grew up in Humboldt and spent time seeing the Broncos play, so he decided to match each donation. Marriott said that the Chestermere is the only one matching the donations as far as he knows. “Right away because Chestermere’s such a hockey community we wanted to embrace this and even add on with our extra donation,” he said. The initiative started through the Saskatchewan Tim Hortons and it was optional to take part in it, but the Chestermere location wanted to embrace it and even add on to it with their extra donations. By his count so far with the extra donations the Chestermere Tim Hortons will be donating around $10,000. Marriott said that some-

times they have had to go to Strathmore Tim Hortons to lend them doughnuts because they would run out throughout the day. “This is not about Tim Hortons, this is about the Humboldt Broncos, this is about people coming together, this is about my baker not being upset or terrified that she has to make 1000 doughnuts extra a day and she’s glad to do it because she knows what cause this is going to,” said Marriott. He said that Bulk Barn had even given them discounts on the sprinkles when they ran out. Marriott said this is about communities coming together and all the support around the communities and organizations for the cause. He has had people order dozens of doughnuts at a time for the campaign

“Ultimately, this is for people in Chestermere who don’t come to Tim Hortons, and if they come into Tim Hortons and buy a dozen or two dozen doughnuts and never come

again, that’s great, he said. He also said that one of the reasons this campaign is such a big success is because of the I Love Chestermere website. “That website reaches

all of Chestermere,” said Marriott. It is unsure of how long the campaign will be going for with the Humboldt Broncos doughnuts.

By Shaun Fisk On March 17 Chestermere high school students entered and won first place in a welding competition called the Welding Rodeo. The students who entered the competition were Austin Tober, Landon Lavoie, Cole Lewis, and Riley Munro. The competition was held by the Catholic school board and the local oilmakers union, but allowed for students enrolled in the public school board at Chestermere high school to enter it. “It went pretty well, we won,” said Andrew Autet, the shop teacher at Chestermere high school. The competition consisted of four events including team sculpture, oxy-fuel cutting, pipe welding and a Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) plate test. “The team sculpture test was St. Patrick’s day themed,” said Lewis. The oxy-fuel cutting competition required the students to cut out sheet metal with an oxy-fuel torch into four leaf clovers and it had to fit through a template. The pipe welding competition had them take a piece of pipe and weld it to a piece of plate. “It had to hold water to see if it leaked or not,” said Munro. Chestermere took home first place in the team sculpture competition along with plac-

ing first in the competition overall. The boys made a beer tap that said luckily on top and had a bunch of horseshoes and four-leaf clovers on the sculpture, and the handle on the tap moved as well. All of the boys who competed in the competition are in grade 12, except for Lewis, and most of them started with welding when they entered high school in grade 10. A lot of the boys want to go to SAIT in order to get their education, red seals, and journeyman designation in the trade. Autet said thanks to the hosts of the rodeo for providing opportunities for students. The students said the competition was very well put together, clean and organized. “It gave them a shot of experiencing realworld skills, rather than just sit in a classroom,” said Autet. They also said that there wasn’t really anything like that that they have heard of before. The school doesn’t completely fund the shop program at Chestermere high school, and the students have to pay money to be able to do it said Autet. This means that in order to be able to participate, students, have to pay extra fees, which may not always be available to them and may make them unable to participate due to lack of funds. The fees include material costs and supply costs for some tools for the student

Spirits of Italy I was enjoying an evening at a fancy Italian restaurant with a large group last week, and I noticed several people ordering spirits instead of wine. Italian wine and food are famous the world over, but the hard liquors of Italy are somewhat less popular. If you were boozing back in the swinging seventies, you probably had a bottle of Frangelico in your liquor cabinet. Frangelico is that hazelnut liqueur in a bottle shaped like a monk’s habit, complete with the cotton sash around the waist. Frangelico went out of favour with the last days of disco, but has recently been enjoying a resurgence in popularity, probably thanks to those millennials discovering it for the first time. Frangelico comes from the Alba region of Italy, which is unsurprisingly famous for its abundant hazelnut harvests. If hazelnuts are to your liking, you will also be happy to hear that Nutella and Ferrero Rocher also come from the Alba region, as do the highly sought Barbera d’Alba wines. Limoncello is another Italian liqueur, and quite possibly the simplest, made from lemon peel, alcohol and sugar. Unlike other spirits,

Limoncello does not have a long and sordid history, being a relative newcomer to the world of booze. The first Limoncello is thought to have been invented on the Amalfi coast in the early 1900s, but was relatively unknown until 1988, when it exploded onto the world scene, thanks to an Italian entrepreneur deciding to start producing Limoncello in industrial quantities for export. I have even made Limoncello at home by carefully zesting the peels from a dozen lemons into a two litre mason jar, and then pouring in a bottle of vodka. Let that sit in a cool dark location for a month for the infusion to complete, then strain out the solids through coffee filters. Finally, add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of sugar, stir well, and keep in the freezer until ready to serve. Grappa is yet another Italian spirit, and one with which I am more familiar. Unlike that young upstart known as Limoncello, Grappa has a history going back more than a thousand years While Grappa is considered a fancy drink today, its origins are decidedly less refined. When the medieval peasants were toiling in the

www.chestermerecitynews.ca

Lakeside Libations vineyards for their wealthy landlords, they really looked forward to a stiff drink at the end of the day. Unfortunately, the peasants from a millennia ago could not afford the expensive wine they were working so hard to make for the local lords and ladies, so they took the crushed grapes, skins, and stems that were left over after the winemaking process, and distilled it into a fierce liquor. The process is quite simple – since the grape skins are high in natural sugars, just throwing in some yeast starts the whole mess fermenting. After the mash has fermented for a while, the alcohol level was increased through distillation. For nearly a thousand years, Grappa was nothing more than rotgut Italian moonshine. It took until the 1960s for Grappa to make the transition to a premium spirit, when several of the larger Grappa producers decided to industrialize the production process, rather than leaving it to haphazard collection and distillation by the poor and downtrodden vineyard workers. This produced a much cleaner, fruitier, and more elegant Grappa, eliminating the harsh nail-polish aromas and taste so commonly

associated with the spirit. Luckily, at the same time, North America experienced an explosion in popularity of Italian cuisine, and Grappa rode on the coattails of pasta dishes to take its place as a classy liquor in its own right. Saving the most famous for last, Sambuca is another thousand-year old liqueur from Italy, made from the white petals of the elderberry flower and flavoured with licorice root or aniseed oil. All the countries in the Mediterranean have their own version of a liqueur made from anise, with histories dating back a thousand years or more. Italy is the home of Sambuca, while Greece has Ouzo, Lebanon has Arak, Turkey has Raki, Spain has Anís, and so on. Sambuca tends to be more heavily sweetened than the other Anise-based liqueurs of neighbouring countries, which may explain why it is the most popular option in the export markets. Whatever your pleasure, there is sure to be an Italian spirit to your liking. Ask your friendly server the next time you are dining at an Italian restaurant, and try a few for yourself!

Welcome Home Your neighbourhood is more than a collection of structures and parked cars, it is a place where we are building a life, pursuing dreams, finding friendships, playing and working. This is why we give so much attention to the wellbeing of our city; thriving neighbourhoods are vital to the health of those who live there. In simple ways we are working to create a home for everyone. When I was about 13 years old, our family moved from Regina to Strathmore. It was a big deal for me. I was not sad to move, but I was not sure if my new house would be a home. But a series of events made it home for me, including being welcomed by our neighbours. I met some other 13 year olds, and soon my new place felt a little better. But we also actively decided to make Strathmore our home and my parents worked hard to step into our community with new dreams. Do you feel at home in your neighbourhood? Is it your ‘home-base’? We can choose to make our neighbourhoods our own by re-

thinking how we live there. One way of doing this is by walking in our neighbourhoods. This may seem obvious, but so many people do not walk their streets. When we discover the contours of our neighbourhood in the slow and interactive ways that walking affords us, then we may feel more at home. Often when my wife and I walk, even slowed down by kids and a dog, we meet others, share stories, and enjoy some new detail about our neighbourhood. Another way to feel at home is to invest in existing relationships. People you know, even marginally, may become those people who make you feel welcome. When we turn to welcome others, we are sometimes the ones who receive the most. Look for bright spots in your neighbourhood. These are places where good stories may be emerging. In our own neighbourhood of Rainbow Falls we have a number of bright spots. One neighbour is planning a community clean up, our church organizes a Soap Box Derby every summer for the kids, some are planting gardens, and others have

started creative businesses like a coffee roaster and brewery. We could overlook these stories, but when we see them as bright spots, we discover that their story is connected to ours. Our neighbourhood becomes our home when we are able to spot good things and live with gratitude for what others are doing around us. Another way of making your neighbourhood feel like home is to bless it. Often we can get caught in the cycle of believing that our neighbourhood exists to serve us, to give us something, and make us happy. This posture always leads to disappointment. When we choose to care for others by looking for ways to give of ourselves for the betterment of our community, we are often the ones to discover new life. When you bless your neighbours, you will feel more at home and you will experience the joy of making your place more than it is. May you find your home in Chestermere. May your neighbourhood be a place of hope and life for you and everyone around you.

Plan your summer festival and fair schedule now Festival and fair season heats up when the temperatures rise. Come summertime, communities across the country play host to cultural, film, music, craft, hobby, or food festivals. With so many entertaining options on the horizon, families and individuals with hectic schedules need to start scoping out their summer festival options early. Here’s how to navigate the bevy of offerings and get ready for several months of fun. · Explore your options. Consult local news sources for upcoming weekend activities. Fairs and festivals are often advertised in neighborhoods on signs and billboards, but they also may be mentioned in calendar-of-events pages in local newspapers. Visit the website of your local chamber of commerce or tourism board to see if they have listings of upcoming local events. · Choose your preferences. Make fair and festival planning a family affair. Look

for events that appeal to all members of the household, or allow each member of the family a weekend afternoon to find events that cater to their interests. Take out the calendar and mark mustsee festivals out as early as possible. · Sign up for updates. Many fairs and festivals are annual events. Visit their websites and sign up for an email mailing list so you can receive updates on events. Joining mailing lists may even make you eligible for coupons or entrance fee discounts on certain days. · Secure accommodations. Increase the enjoyment factor of the fair or festival by not being pressed for time. Book a room in a nearby hotel or motel and turn a weekend festival excursion into a mini-vacation. · Dress the part. Festivals and fairs typically take place outdoors. Dress according to the morning forecast. Layer clothing so that everyone can take off or add items to feel comfortable. Widebrimmed hats and sunglass-

es may provide relief from overhead sun. Plus, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes, as festivalgoers tend to walk a lot. Apply and reapply sunblock throughout the day as necessary. · Plan your transportation. Typically fairs and festivals can get crowded quickly, with ingress and egress roads being blocked by traffic. Also, parking lots may fill up fast. Plan to leave early for the fair, and consider public transportation, shuttle buses or a rideshare service to make the day more carefree. · Identify a meeting spot. In the event that a child or adult separates from the group, find a meeting spot where the family can gather. Children can also carry a note listing an adult’s mobile phone number for emergencies. Fairs and festivals are an annual ritual for many people. Now is the time to plan for these fun-filled excursions.

By Charles Lammam and Hugh MacIntyre The Fraser Institute Misperceptions plague the public’s view of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), despite efforts to provide some clarity. Mark Machin, chief executive officer of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) – the organization tasked with investing CPP contributions – recently hit the road in a crosscountry effort to clear up the confusion. Unfortunately, Machin’s lack of clarity on key issues may have muddied the waters even more, giving the impression CPP is a much better deal for Canadians than it actually is. For example, Machin told Canadians that CPP is financially sustainable. This wasn’t always the case. CPP was overhauled in

1997; reforms included the creation of CPPIB to invest CPP contributions made by working Canadians that are in excess of the benefits paid to retirees in a given year. As Machin admits, most Canadians don’t know much about the CPP investment arm. But its existence gives the impression that the money Canadians pay into CPP will eventually fund their individual retirement, just like private pension plans. But CPP premiums paid today are still largely used to pay benefits to alreadyretired Canadian workers. In reality, CPPIB only invests a portion of our contributions – the rest goes to current recipients of CPP benefits. Still, CPPIB has done well in recent years. According to the last annual report, the five-year inflation-adjusted rate of return earned by CPPIB is 11.8 per cent. Does this mean CPP is a great deal for Canadians? No. The benefits Canadians receive from CPP don’t directly depend on CPPIB’s investment performance. For CPP to remain sustainable, CPPIB investments must deliver inflation-adjusted annual rates of return of 3.9 per cent. Beating that target puts CPP on a sound financial footing but doesn’t directly translate into higher benefits for Canadian retirees. And yet, in his recent comments, Machin failed to differentiate between CPPIB’s rate of return and the rate of return individual contributors receive. In fact, a formula – based on how many years you work, your annual contribu-

tions and the age you retire – determines your benefit amounts when you retire. This formula has nothing to do with CPPIB’s investment performance. So what’s the actual rate of return on CPP contributions for individual Canadians? Not great. Canadians born after 1970 can expect to receive a rate of return from their CPP contributions of 2.3 to 2.5 per cent (depending on their specific year of birth). This is a meagre rate of return for Canadian contributors. But CPP is also a not-sogreat deal for Canadians in other ways. Unlike most pension plans, CPP benefits can’t be fully bequeathed on death (spouses get only partial benefits if one passes away but only if they’re not eligible for benefits on their own). The program is designed so Canadians who die early in life subsidize those who live longer. Moreover, CPP lacks the flexibility of other retirement vehicles. Unlike registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) contributions, CPP payments can’t be withdrawn in cases of hardship (financial or health-related), to fund a down payment on a home or to help pay for education upgrading. So while we agree with Machin that it’s important Canadians understand CPP and how it works, he should be careful not to add to the confusion.

Ending The Stigma Around Mental Health East Lake School host mental health day By Shaun Fisk East Lake Middle School kicked off with a mental health day on April 11 to teach kids about mental health and end the stigma attached to it. The day included activities such as knitting, presentations from Community Therapy Dogs Society, music and how it relates to mental health, stories from people who have struggled with mental health, and much more. The point of the day was to teach kids in grades 8 and grade 9 about mental health, let them know they are not alone and help to end the stigma around mental health. “We’ve been able to get a lot of support just from the people that have already connected to our school,” said Shannon Edeburn, the Child Development Advisor at East Lake School. Some of the kids thought it was really cool that they were supporting mental health and that they were becoming aware of what’s going on in the world today. One of the programs held at the school was the Community Therapy Dogs, formerly known as the Chestermere Therapy Dogs, session, where they talked about what therapy and service dogs do for people, the difference between the two types of dogs, how they help, and the different programs they offer. It puts them, psychologically, in a positive state of mind,” said Nina Bruchet, one of the people who came to talk to the kids with Community Therapy Dogs. Community Therapy Dogs offers the Listening Tails, Visiting Tails, and Caring Tails programs for adults and kids. “Listening Tails helps the

kids feel at ease and allows people to read in a nonjudgemental environment,” said Bruchet. One of the other programs they offered was a music for mental health program run by the Math and Language Arts teacher Scott Mackay. “Studies have shown dopamine releases when listening to music,” said Scott Mackay. For the program, he taught how music helps with mental health and at the end he allowed the students to

create their own music with garage band. Mackay said he thought music could help people focus, relax, and even connect with people. “For me personally creating music just allows me to kind of think through things and understand myself better, so I think it can help with self-discovery,” said Mackay. The school also got a visit from the Headstrong program, a program meant to make sure Canadians

are getting the help they and need and to challenge the stigma around mental illness. The program talked of what to do if you or someone is suffering from mental illness, what the stigma around mental illness is, shared resources to help people, as well as shared personal stories of struggling with mental illness. “What do you do if you think the worst is going to happen? Ask questions, tell an adult, keep caring, know

you kept them safe, and share resources,” said Fiona Hayes. To end the day grades six to nine all gathered in the gym for one final assembly with Movement With a Message. Movement With a Message had Connie Jakab and Steve Osmond talking about how people can affect another’s life and how to better their own. This involved a lot of dancing and participation from all of the kids and even

some teachers “Movement has been linked to healthy brain connection, circuitry, good self-awareness, and more self-awareness the more other awareness I can have,” said Jakab. She said that joy is a big part of solving mental health and instead of just talking about the serious it’s good to have some fun. Osmond said that he thought the kids were also earning to encourage each other.

Baseball And Softball Players Ready To Hit The Diamonds By Ian Busby With the snow finally melting and temperatures warming, Chesteremere’s kids of summer are hoping to hit the ground running when it’s dry enough. The extended winter has made it seem like the outdoor sport season would never arrive, but as of now the Chestermere Crushers are on schedule to start the season when they normally do. For the past few weeks, players have been working through the motions indoors with the anticipation that once they can get outside, they can go full out on games. “We are fortunate to have some indoor facilities to get us up to speed so we will hit the ground running when the snow is gone,” said Crushers president Chris Wallin. “The challenge is

we’re up against every other baseball organization in the city to use them. Everyone is in the same boat. “We structure our program around that. When we do go outdoors we’re ready to roll.” There are a few issues working against Chestermere baseball players, outside of the usual challenges that plague outdoor sports enthusiasts. There is just enough diamonds for the approximately 380 kids registered in Crushers programs this year. When it’s nice out, every space will be used every night, but they also can’t accommodate the baseball programs for the older teenagers. “Chestermere doesn’t have a diamond big enough for anyone over the age of 14,” Wallin said. “We have

16-17-year-olds that don’t have a diamond to play on, so we beg, borrow and steal any diamond we can get in the city. “Sunridge Little League was nice enough to lend us their diamond the last few years. Which was awesome. Last year was the first time we put a softball program together as well as a Base-

ball Alberta program. “So we have three teams that play in Baseball Alberta. Seven teams that will be in softball, plus we have all these little league teams. Crushers baseball is also softball, tee ball and coach pitch. It’s pretty big.” The hope is that the warm weather will hold so that every level can get enough

of their regular-season games in order to put together some tournament all-star teams for the summer months. “It’s our intent to form allstar teams in each division,” Wallin said. “If there aren’t enough kids to commit to playing throughout July, the kids who want to play can go to another league and

join a team. “We’ve taken kids from other associations in some years and other years our kids have gone to other associations. All attempts are made to be inclusive.” There have been times this ‘spring’ that it seemed like we would never get good enough weather to play some outdoor games. The hope is the actual spring will be better than the winter, but of course rain is expected over the next couple of months while the kids are playing baseball and softball. “We know the snow isn’t going to last forever but we know it can rain or snow at any point in the season,” Wallin said. “It snows May long weekend every year. It’s part of being in a northern climate and playing an outdoor sport.”

Chestermere Goalie Leading Team In AJHL By Ian Busby It’s been an up and down season for Nolan Kent, but the Spruce Grove Saints goalie is feeling pretty good standing tall right now in the crease. The Chestermere native has backstopped the Saints to the AJHL final against the Okotoks Oilers, and given them a 2-0 lead after backto-back overtime wins on the road April 13-14. For a player who spent a few months rehabbing a knee injury this season, Kent is feeling great about how things have turned out in his second AJHL campaign.

He started out hot this season, putting up excellent numbers until going down with a torn meniscus during a game on Oct. 29. The injury required surgery, and it wasn’t until February that Kent could return to action. During that time he still travelled with the team, doing stats and helping with video, which is tough for a competitor like him, but it did give him a new perspective on his team. “It was a little frustrating at points because I wanted to be out there playing,” Kent said. “I didn’t want to rush things and risk doing further damage and extend the period that you are out.

It was a good and bad thing. I learned some things but I was getting a little bored just watching all the time I guess.” “You try not to take it for granted being out that long. You can only play in this league for a certain amount of years. You have to make the most of every day. You need to work hard every day because something more serious could happen.” Things have worked out very well for Kent in the playoffs. The Saints swept their first two series and were 10-0 in the post-season after Games 1 and 2 of the final. They have their eyes on RBC Cup in Chilliwack,

B.C., from May 12-20. “We’ve tried to hold ourselves to a high standard and pursue excellence every day,” Kent said. “Those are the things we talk about in the room. It’s good to see it’s starting to pay off in making the finals. I don’t think we’re done yet. “We’re a really strong group. We have an awesome defence corps and some forwards that can really put the puck in the net. We are well rounded that way and play a pretty good structure. It’s pretty comforting that way being back there. We’re averaging only about 20 shots against a night. It’s easy that way.”

When the injury first happened, Kent feared the worst because he couldn’t fully straighten his leg due to the displaced meniscus. He felt for sure he did some ligament damage, but when the diagnosis came back, he was relieved his season could be saved. Still, when he came back he was a bit tentative to go down into the butterfly that caused the injury in the first place. Now that he’s back a couple of months, he’s feeling much more comfortable, and it’s showing. “It’s hard to be successful if you don’t go down,” Kent said. “I had to ease my way into and not do it all at once.

I was skating for about a month before I was allowed to go down into a butterfly. It was a long road to recovery that’s for sure.”

Chestermere high schoolers getting taste of big time at Stampede rodeo By Ian Busby

Around a dozen Chestermere and area teenagers will be getting a taste of the professional rodeo life this weekend. The Rocky View Calgary High School Rodeo goes April 20-22 at the Nutrien Western Event Centre at the Stampede, with around 300 competitors expected from all over the province. Along with the six main events, there will be breakaway, pole bending, ribbon roping, goat tying and chute dogging. This event will count towards the standings for district one and two competitors (southern and central Alberta) as they build towards the provincial finals in early June. “What this rodeo is all

about is getting the kids down competing at some world-class venues that the Stampede has to offer,” said Dan Richard, who is the high school rodeo co-ordinator from the Chestermere Agricultural Society. One of the big highlights of event will of course be the bull riding, which is on full-size stock despite the relatively young age of the competitors. “When you see the bulls coming into the chutes, you wonder if the high school kids are going to get on those,” Richard said. “This is what they do. These kids have been involved for rodeo for years. Speaking just from bull-riding, these kids have all started on steers and worked their way up through the amateur The Rocky View Calgary High School Rodeo will be happening April 20-22 at the Nutrien Western Event Centre at the Stampede.

circuit. From high school rodeo they go to college rodeo, and from there the sky is the limit.” There are a few Chestermere athletes doing well in the standings as well. Jewel Brister tops the point standings in the barrel racing, and she should be a top contender for provincial and national titles in that event. She also competes in poles and roping. This event should be a

good stepping stone for the young competitors, even if they don’t have aspirations of turning pro. “It’s like any sport as the chances of being a professional aren’t the greatest,” Richard said. “But it’s like any hockey player who would jump at the chance to play a game at the Saddledome, it’s the same thing for the rodeo kids when they get a chance to do their thing at the Stampede.

Province continuing to prepare for the imminent legalization of Cannabis in Canada Albertan’s health and safety top priority in proposed legislation By Jeremy Broadfield

The provincial government is continuing to move forward with legislation to prepare for the legalization of Cannabis in Canada that is expected to occur this summer. “We remain focused on building a system for legal cannabis that prioritizes the safety and security of all Albertans,” said Alberta Minister of Justice and Solicitor General Kathleen Ganley. The province is working to amend legislation that will provide the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) the authority to administer and enforce the cannabis market upon legalization. “These amendments to the Gaming and Liquor Act represent another step in our continued work to prepare for the legalization of cannabis,” said Ganley. Updates to the AGLC’s mandate will include rules for naming cannabis products as well as detail

fines the AGLC can levy for violations of the act. The changes are intended to protect Albertan’s health and ensure that cannabis is kept out of the hands of children. Cannabis retailers and products will be prohibited from using any terms or symbols with medical connotations in branding and promoting their products. The legislation will also work to limit or eliminate the illegal market in cannabis. Amendments to reduce regulation and create op-

portunities within Alberta’s liquor industry are also being included in the changes. “Our government has worked to eliminate unnecessary regulation that negatively impacts our restaurant and bar industry. Ferment-on-premises and blending of liquor products represent common sense changes that open new revenue streams for business and allows Albertans another way to responsibly enjoy themselves,” said President of Treasury Board and Alberta Minister of Finance Joe Ceci.


Provincial News Leela Sharon Aheer Wildrose MLA Hello Chestermere! First of all I want to thank the all the volunteers who put together the Volunteer Job Fair, spearheaded by Synergy. I was so sorry to miss it as I was heading back to Edmonton, but I heard it was a great success! “We have the cause, you have the effect” was the slogan. Check out my ChestermereRockyview Facebook page for my assistant’s pictures of the great organizations that participated. Giving back to your community helps us to engage in the things that are important to us, to build community, and make new friends and learn new skills. I see from the Chestermere forecast that Mother Nature

is throwing another snowball at our agricultural community. Please spare a thought for our farming friends as they deal with a very difficult situation trying to get ready for seeding and of course having to be available 24/7 for calving in very bad weather. They will get ‘er done though, as usual. And now, welcome to story time folks and the next chapter in the provincial/ federal drama that is full of the evil protagonist “Kinder Morgan” and featuring provinces who deny the need for these pipelines. BC and Quebec are ok with filling our water ways with…poop, please look on line and meet Mr. Floatie. The most frustrating part is that Canada continues to buy resources from regimes that are massive polluters and have brutal human rights records. It is the never-ending saga of three “powerful” people that would have you believing that they really care about

the people they represent. It is truly interesting to find out that a fully funded, privately owned environmentally responsible pipeline may end up being owned by…you guessed it…your Government. So here is the new story line. Trudeau interrupts his trip to Peru as it became apparent that our country’s fearless leader may need to meet with the two major players involved in building/protesting the pipeline. With a May 31st drop dead date for Kinder Morgan to still stay in the game, the clock is ticking for these 3 leaders who hold our well being in the palm of their hands, it is drama worthy and we all hold our breath waiting to hear about this emergency meeting. Here is the result of said meeting. Trudeau stated the obvious, that his government has the authority to make sure that Trans Mountain is built. Well... phew! I was beginning to worry that he had forgotten that this is his jurisdiction.

The Chestermere Anchor City News

Secondly he stated that he was going to take whatever financial and legislative action that is needed to make that happen! Ok, great! What does that mean? The federal government might be going into the business of pipelines but we are not allowed to know what the negotiation will look like. We will be told once the details are hashed out. Then the Prime Minister said he was pursuing legislative options. What I do not understand, is first of all, why would anyone even think about investing public dollars in the pipeline until we find out whether or not the Prime Minister is actually going to support the pipeline. You can invest every dollar you have into the pipeline, but if you cannot get it built then what is the point? The meeting brought no consensus. In fact, now officials may be asked to come in and address concerns around ocean protection plans. The meetings were centered around what

| April • 19 • 2018

BC wants. That’s right. It is all about what BC wants in terms of improvement. In fact Horgan announced that he would continue to block the pipeline. Kinder Morgan has suspended all non-essential spending on the pipeline project. As you know I will be seeking the nomination for the new riding of Chestermere-Strathmore. There are some great volunteer opportunities for those of you who are interested in politics as we put together a new board for the new area, door knock and other fun opportunities. We will be hosting Town Halls, calling the membership and hopefully we will see you at the doors. We will keep you updated on the date of the Chestermere-Strathmore AGM once the date is chosen, so you can come out and vote for the board that will represent you and replace the ChestermereRocky View board.

Constituency Association communications sub committee has recently decided to send out surveys to the Chestermere-Rocky View membership. The Chestermere-Rocky View “surveys” do not come from myself or the president of the Chestermere-Rocky View Constituency Association or the UCP and are not to be confused with the substantive survey questions coming from the United Conservative Party, which are quite intense and long. Please, if you are a member and have the time to take the United Conservative Party survey, it is well worth the time to participate in helping with foundational policies for our founding AGM. I am so excited to see many of you at the founding UCP AGM. As we head towards nominations please remember you must be a member in the UCP to vote in the nominations. We will keep you updated as to when that will be. As always we love to hear from you.

Strange new frontiers By K.A. Taylor TV Media The concept of androids has permeated social consciousness since the 1800s, but it wasn’t until 1984’s sci-fi hit “The Terminator” graced the screen that people genuinely feared the prospect of “the singularity,” and a world where humans would become ruled by machines. While most films and novels have suggested that the robot rebellion will be brought in with a bang, “Westworld” proved that a whimper was equally, if not more, effective. This soft realization leads to some formidable action, however, with the hosts ready to venture out and discover the many layers of the park when season 2 begins Sunday, April 22, on HBO. The premise of “Westworld” is somewhat familiar, due to the popularity of the android sentience trope in science fiction. The series origins stem from the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name, upon which it is loosely based. Season 1 introduced viewers to Westworld, a theme park in the not-too-distant future that allows society’s wealthiest to indulge in the ultimate immersive experience. Though other locations are alluded to, the bulk of the show’s first season

takes place in Sweetwater, a frontier town complete with saloons, gunslingers and an eerily recognizable piano score. Given the choice of black or white hat, humans can either experience a kinder, gentler version of the Wild West, or delve deeper into a gritty world of vengeance and violence, allowing themselves to express all manner of taboo, morally questionable acts. This experience is only a success due to the plethora of android hosts that populate the parks. The freshman season introduced us to the saloon’s madam, Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton, “ER”), whose recurring dreams about a daughter from a past storyline (pre-madam) gradually led to her becoming self-aware. Teddy Flood (James Marsden, “X-Men,” 2000) isn’t quite that cognizant, with the heroic gunslinger propelled more by love than self-realization to assist another host on her quest. That host is the enigmatic Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood, “True Blood”). No host still operating has endured the life Dolores has, seen what she’s seen, or would be a more likely candidate for becoming fully sentient. In fact, the rebellion so impeccably orchestrated in promotional material for season 2 of “Westworld” seems largely to fall within the hands of Dolores and Maeve, both of whom are now ready to help their

When Buttercup starts spending a lot of time with her new friends, a group of bad-girl skaters called The Derbytantes, it seems The Powerpuff Girls are down to two, which delights Princess Morbucks, who wants to fill the empty slot.

When Rizzo the Rat arrives and makes a mess in the playroom, the only way the Muppet Babies can get him to stop is to defeat him in a dance-off. Summer is tired of being the smallest Muppet Baby and enlists Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker to help.

After visiting the dodos, the Wild Kratts travel to another time period to visit another extinct animal, the Tasmanian tiger. Their trip doesn’t go as planned, however, and they must save the Tasmanian tigers from Dabio and Donita’s ancestors.

Dora and Boots set out to help King Juan el Bobo find his crown so we can all go to his Mamí’s birthday party. Where did the forgetful king put his crown? It’s a silly adventure as we sing to the snapping crocodiles and run past the fountain.

NFL franchises are preparing to set up shop at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for the 2018 NFL Draft, which begins with the first round on Thursday, April 26, on Fox, and ends on Saturday, April 28, with rounds four to seven on ABC. Trades can, and often do, take place before and during the draft, so tune in and don’t miss a single move. For the second year in a row, the Cleveland Browns have the first selection in the draft. The Browns used last year’s top pick to draft defensive end Myles Garrett from Texas A&M. Due to injury, Garrett played

only 10 of the Browns’ 16 games, but he managed to lead the team in sacks with seven. Despite Garrett’s efforts, the Browns still finished with the worst record in the league following yet another season plagued by quarterback woes. The Browns have since traded away quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler and added a veteran presence at the position with Tyrod Taylor. Although Taylor is entering the prime of his career, the Browns may still want to draft a young yet promising quarterback early in the draft to add depth to the position and allow the rookie to learn under Taylor in his early years as a professional.

The most polarizing prospect in this year’s draft is Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy with the Sooners in 2017 and was one win away from reaching the national championship. Despite his unquestionable talent, however, Mayfield’s antics have drawn comparisons to former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, whose NFL career lasted only two seasons and was filled with controversy. If the Browns don’t take the gamble on Mayfield, it will be interesting to see which team does. Find out where the polarizing player lands at the NFL Draft, starting Thursday, April 26, on Fox.

The 2020 Census is asking a new question that many say is invasive and inappropriate. The question is: “Are you Gryffindor or Hufflepuff?” A new report says that President Trump has been hiring people for his administration based on how they perform on television. So congratulations to our new secretary of housing and urban development, Mr. Andy Richter.

Horoscope

(c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

WEEK OF APRIL 23, 2018 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You easily handle your tasks this week, thanks to those high energy levels that never seem to run down. But pace yourself, Lamb, for the demanding week ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) With the arts dominant this week, you might want to pick up any of those creative projects you’ve neglected. A workplace situation benefits from some fresh insight. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Music helps replenish your energy levels. Stream your playlist if you must. But a live concert could prove more rewarding, especially if you go with that very special someone. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Close friends reach out to help perk up your lagging social life. That workplace situation also eases, leaving you time to do more fun things by week’s end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A revelation clears up that perplexing job-related problem. Some changes will have to be made, which, no doubt, will meet with the Big Cat’s roaring approval. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Reaching out to someone in need is the noble thing to do. But try to restrain the temptation to add a lecture -- no matter how well-intended -- to your good deed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There

could be another tough challenge to face before the month is over. But all that hard work is winning you lots of important recognition from your peers. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Keeping to your work schedule could prove difficult with all those personal distractions. Best advice: Stay with it. There’ll be time later for socializing. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Jumping hurdles this week might be vexing for most, but not for the sage Sagittarian, who recognizes that meeting a challenge can open up opportunities. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) More obstacles might be thrown in your path as you try to finalize a new agreement. But the surefooted Goat ignores the stumbling blocks and stays the course. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) We know the Water Bearer takes pleasure in giving to others. But why not let someone else enjoy the experience too by accepting that offer of help? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might find that you need to ease up on your hectic schedule this week. Don’t fret about it. It could be helpful to take a break and replenish your energy supply. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of finding practical solutions to complex problems, and you do it with grace.
