Chestermere celebrated its first Pride week with a barbecue at John Peake Park and by painting the crosswalks in front of city hall the colours of the Pride and Trans flags. “We want the community to know, the

LGBTQ community to know that we all stand in solidarity of both flags of the Trans Flag and the rainbow flag,” said Joanne Mugambi, Senior Coordinator for community and neighbourhood services, in Community Services at the City of Chestermere. Mugambi said that along with show support,

the crosswalks are symbolic of, “getting from one stage to another.” “We are moving from a place, we didn’t really understand what was going on, we want to understand more as a community, we want to do better and we want to cross over together,” said Mugambi.

Rainbow Crosswalk shows City’s support for LGBTQ community in Chestermere

The crosswalks were painted by city staff and community volunteers on Aug. 23. The community support was excellent, especially after the painting was rescheduled at the last minute to avoid forecast rain. “I’m really excited that all these people were able to come out on a very last-minute basis,” said Mugambi, “that just shows how much of an appetite there is for this kind of thing in the community.” As Mugambi said that the crosswalks looked amazing as she watched the volunteers paint them. Pride Week came about as a response to requests from the community that the city support the local LGBTQ community. “Our events are very community driven,” said Mugambi, “To the best of my knowledge this the first time that community members came out to us and asked us to support this,” she said, “so we definitely had to respond to that immediately.” Seventeen-year-old Carmina Raposo was one of the people who helped make Pride Week in Chestermere happen. “I do a lot of activism for the LGBT Community because I’ve seen the kind of pain they can go through and I’m part of the community myself, so it means a lot to me to be able to reach out to even one person and show that they’re welcome and have a home with us,” said Raposo. Along with volunteering behind the scenes to help make Pride Week a success, Raposo wrote a letter to the CAO to request that the crosswalks be painted. Raposo, who described herself as gender queer, said that she was, “aware of it when I was around 12 but didn’t actually start to feel comfortable coming out until I was 15.” “I think it’s a journey, I think it’s always going to be a little tough,” she said.

Continued from front

It can be all the more tough when one’s peers or family aren’t understanding. “I know people in Chestermere who have been beat up by their peers for being LGBTQ,” said Raposo. Despite this, Raposo said that in her experience, it is most often family that can be the toughest on youth as they come out as LGBTQ. “Often times it’s not necessarily the community it’s the home that can be very difficult for an LGBTQ youth to navigate,” she said. While there isn’t always the support amongst one’s peers or family, having come out, Raposo, said that she has found the LGBTQ Community to be like a family. While Raposo is still coming to terms with and learning about herself, she is working hard to help raise awareness, understanding and support for the LGBTQ community. Her hope is that by celebrating Pride Week in Chestermere, members of the LGBTQ community in the city will feel a little bit more accepted in Chestermere. “My biggest hope is that members of the LGBTQ community that might not be out, might not be comfortable, might be in a really bad place right now will be able to see this and feel a little bit more at home, feel a little bit safer,” she said. The crosswalks, at the moment are an impermanent show of support as the city didn’t have the budget for the specialized paint needed for a permanent crosswalk. Depending on the weather and amount of traffic, the two flags will slowly fade away. Mugambi said that her goal is to eventually get the Pride and Trans crosswalks painted permanently. She feels it is important that the local members of the LGBTQ community, “see that we’re supporting them.”

Classic Cars a family affair August • 30 • 2018 |

Member of the Morgan family brings his namesake car to the annual Chestermere Show and Shine By Jeremy Broadfield

Classic car lovers will be familiar with the Morgan Motor Company and their Plus 8 sports car. And while finding a Morgan Plus 8 tucked in amongst the hundreds of cars at the annual Chestermere Show and Shine Aug. 25 is no suprise, what might surprise some is that the owner of this particular Plus 8 is a member of the Morgan family that the cars are named for. “My Grandfather was HFS the starter of it,” said Chris Blackmore who makes his home just south of Chestermere in Indus. HFS being Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan, the founder of the Morgan Motor Company. “My Mother was Brenda Morgan, she died when I was 12 and my step mother sent me to the colonies and that’s about the rest of it,” he said, “I’ve been here ever since.” Blackmore has owned his Plus 8 for about seven years now. He purchased it after his attempts to import a Morgan from England ran into too much beauracratic red tape. The car, which was originally, was repainted to the colours used in the Lamont 24 hour race. “My cousin devised this colour and used it for his race,”

he said. While some of the cars at the shown and shine are babied by their owners, Blacmore said he drives his Plus 8 year round. “I drive the heck out of it,” he said, “I come into Chestermere for coffee any old time.”

Show and Shine brings Classic cars for a cause The annual Chestermere Show and Shine hosted by the Lakeside Kruzers and sponsored by the Dockside Bar and Grill brought together car lovers from across the city and province to support a good cause. “The show went very well,” said event organizer John Kittler, “The unsettled weather prior to the day of the event probably kept about 100 cars or more from attending.” Despite the potentially reduced turn out they still had 376 vehicles in attendance. Kittler said that they raised $14,072 at the Show and Shine this year. The money will be donated to the Easter Seals Alberta, Chestermere Food Bank, and the Alberta Adolescent Recover Centre.

RCMP Briefs

Program promotes boat safety in the community By Jeremy Broadfield A new program introduced by Chestermere’s RCMP is looking to help improve safety on the water here in the city. The Chestermere RCMP Marine Safety Decal Program is being used by the RCMP locally to identify boats on the lake that have passed a safety inspection conducted by the police. throughout the boating season, police conduct patrols and inspections of boats using the lake to ensure compliance with the safety equipment that boat is required by law to have equipped. A boat that passes inspection is given the decal. Chestermere RCMP Detachment Commander Staff Sgt. Mark Wielgosz said that by displaying the decal, boaters can ensure faster inspections if stopped in the future. Boats displaying the decal will only be checked to ensure that there are sufficient life jackets for everyone on board, check for a pleasure craft operator license, and to ensure no unlawful activity is occurring. Although the boating season approaching the end, Wielgosz said that in addition to checking boats on the lake and at the boat launch, RCMP, if available, will also inspect boats at the detachment. “If somebody has their boat on a trailer and they want to stop by the office I’m happy to do an inspection to make sure it meets compliance and we can even issue a decal in the parking lot of the detachment,” said Wielgosz. For more information on the decal program or water safety in general, Wielgosz encourages residents to check out the RCMP’s updated webpage on the City of Chestermere’s website at “I would encourage all members of the public to check it out,” he said, “and if they have any questions they can always call our office.”

Police targeting habitual offenders in the city Chestermere’s RCMP have increased their monitoring of habitual offenders in Chestermere in an effort to reduce thefts and other property crimes in the city. “We’re monitoring that 10 per cent of the population that’s committing 90 per cent of the problems for our commu-nity,” said Wielgosz. “We are actively monitoring them and we’re ensuring they’re remaining law abiding citizens,” he said. He said that police are more, “aggressively,” targeting habitual offenders through the detachment’s habitual offender management program, “to ensure that we’re maximizing public safety.” “We have two that are in the program right now but that doesn’t mean that we discount others that we’re interest-ed in the community,” said Wielgosz. While those who are identified for the program are closely watched, Wielgosz said that police are monitoring other persons of interest as well. “Of those two [habitual offenders] that we’re actively monitoring I can say both are incarcerated at this point in time,” said Wielgosz. He believes that it is important for Chestermere residents to know that the police are aware of who is in our commu-nity. “And again, if these persons aren’t compliant with their...court ordered conditions that we’re actively there to investigate those matters and ensure that there is a high degree of compliance,” said Wielgosz.

Foot patrols help secure vehicles in Chestermere RCMP continue to conduct patrols in the community to check for unlocked vehicles and secure them. The education campaign see’s police dropping an information pamphlet inside the vehicle before locking the doors and continuing on their patrol. “It is a priority for us this year we will see more of them,” said Wielgosz. He said that so far, he has had nothing but positive feedback from the community about the program that looks to curb both theft of vehicles and from vehicles in Chestermere.

RCMP see successes in improving safety in the city Police making headway on reducing property crimes in the city By Jeremy Broadfield

With a mixture of new and old strategies, Chestermere’s RCMP have seen positive results in improving road safety and reducing property crimes in the city over the past quarter. “We’ve seen some fantastic enhancements with respect to our activities and

our objectives that we’re looking to achieve in both of those priorities,” said Chestermere RCMP Detachment Commander Staff Sgt. Mark Wielgosz. With respect to road safety, Wielgosz said that both reportable collisions and injury collisions are down. “With collision we saw about a seven and a half per

cent drop and injury collisions were reduced by 50 per cent in the first quarter,” he said. With such positive results, he said that local RCMP’s efforts and partnership with Chestermere’s Peace Officers to improve the safety of city streets is working. “That’s giving us a signal that what we’re doing seems

to be working at least at this point in time,” said Wielgosz. When it comes to property crime, the improvement is not quite as good, but Wielgosz said that police are making headway on what has been a stubbornly persistent problem in Chestermere. “We’re working more in a targeted and intelligence driven…manner with respect to these crimes,” he said. Even with the improvements, Wielgosz said that their message is still lock it or lose when it comes to residents securing their homes and vehicles. “Despite the number of arrests that we make and seizures and recoveries of stolen property the message still remains consistent, we’d like people to lock up their belongings or risk losing it,” he said. Last year, about 50 per cent of the property crimes in Chestermere were as a result of insecure property, including vehicles. “So, it’s a matter of educating the public to try and get them on board with what we’re trying to do,” said Wielgosz, “to ensure everyone’s doing their part to keep our community safe.” One way that the residents can help the RCMP is to join their voluntary home video surveillance registry. The registry, which stays within the detachment, gives police a list of houses in Chestermere with home video surveillance systems. When property or other crimes occur, the ability for police to quickly consult the registry and approach homeowners whose home system’s may have video evidence of the incident can lead to faster investigations with better chances of making an arrest or recovering stolen property. Wielgosz said that video

footage is invaluable in their investigations. “Last week for instance, there was one incident we were investigating with respect to a stolen vehicle and as we were investigating a resident stepped out stating that they’re seen the suspect leave the vehicle and in fact had footage of the entire matter. “That was another instance where video surveillance on a home became very useful to us and it is assisting with identifying that suspect,” said Wielgosz. The biggest challenge RCMP have had with the registry is letting residents know it exists. He said that in most cases like the recent stolen vehicle, homeowners are completely unaware of the registry program. “A lot of [residents] just don’t know the program exists but when they’re told about it they’re certainly very supportive and willing to help in any way that they can,” said Wielgosz. When a person comes forward with video surveillance, officers ask if they would like to be added to the registry. “And as far as I’m aware we have yet to have a person decline,” said Wielgosz.

While the registry is slowly growing as police investigate incidents in Chestermere, Wielgosz said that he would be happy to have people call the detachment and sign up. When it comes to raising awareness in the community, Wielgosz hopes that the new crime mapping tool that is available on the City’s RCMP website will both encourage people to join the registry and help to educate people on what is happening in the city. The map, which can be found at www.chestermere. ca/202/RCMP, shows the past 14 days of crimes committed in the community. In addition to the potential to help in their investigations, Wielgosz said that he decided to join the mapping program created by Alberta’s RCMP be cause he felt it would be a positive move for Chestermere. By participating in the crime mapping, Wielgosz said that Chestermere’s RCMP are supporting the city’s strategic goals towards transparency and accountability. “We are accountable to the public and I think it’s fair that they know what’s going on in their community,” he said.

Community coming together through tragedy Annual event giving opportunity to not take things for granted By Emily Rogers The annual Life’s Too Short’s event is going back to the basics and bringing Chestermere together through a string of tragedies the community was endured together. “Life’s Too Shorts is basically a big block party,” said event organizer Michelle Wilson. On Sept. 9 from 12 until 4 p.m., there will be a free barbeque at Camp Chestermere, a variety of games including three legged races, sack races, water balloon tosses, and a giant kerplunk. Throughout the afternoon there will be music, and the fire department will be hanging out as well, Wilson said. She added, the Life’s Too Short’s event was first born after the sudden death of a local teenager, Jaydon Sommerfeld. “A few days before the accident he tweeted ‘Life’s Too Short’s,’ it was laughed off as an autocorrect mistake, but a lot of people close to the family took it too heart and decided that

was a way to honour him.” Shortly after the accident another tragedy hit Chestermere, where another local teenager, Markus Lavallee, his grandmother, and family pet were in a collision, Wilson said. “The boys knew each other, kids around town knew both the boys. It was something that rocked our community, it was unimageable.,” Wilson said. Wilson realized that after the accidents occurred the community needed to help the youth, and show them that the community cares about them, and that the community is there for them. The first annual Life’s Too Short’s event was a hockey tournament, as both the teenagers played hockey. “They lived their lives so authentically,” Wilson added, “If they said something, they did it. “They respected people, I think that a lot of people can learn about life from these boys, who were amazing kids, living their lives, living their dreams.” Wilson added, the Life’s Too Short’s event last year

went digital instead of having a physical day of activity. As part of the Random Acts of Kindness campaign the Life’s Too Short’s committee went around Chestermere handing out coffee, gift cards, and cards with inspirational messages on them, which went out as far as Medicine Hat Alta., Wilson said. However, as the youth in the community who knew the teenage boys grow up and begin graduating it was important for Wilson and for the Life’s Too Short’s committee to show the youth that the community is still there for them, and still support them. She added, Life’s Too Short’s is about people taking the time for an afternoon, relaxing, having fun, laughing, being together, and counting your blessings. “I think that people do [Count their blessings], but in this day and age life is just so busy, sometimes we might not have the time to slow down and remember what we have, or tell people that we love them,” she said.

“Our goal is to remind people that the little things in life are what’s important, take the time to slow down, and just be together.” Wilson said, “I am guilty of this, we’re just too busy running around, it’s hard to just slow down and say let’s have a meal together and talk.” The ultimate goal for the Life’s Too Short’s organizing committee is for residents in the community to realize that it is possible to be together, slow down, hangout, and have fun for an afternoon. Wilson added, “Our hope is to garnish some more interest and keep the event going for a bigger event next year.” Although planning the Life’s Too Short’s event has been stressful for Wilson she is looking forward to hanging out with her community, and family, and enjoying the afternoon. “When we see other people happy, we’re happy. It’s great to see that I had a small part in organizing an event that made people happy,” she said. Wilson added, mothers in

Plans for the coming year include writing a play about

the history of Chestermere, expanding the historic tours around the lake via boat, historical signage around the lake in partnership with the City, and adding to the pictorial history of Chestermere in the ‘Walk Down Memory Lane’ gallery in the library.

Very Old Fish Find New Home By Jen Peddlesden

Chestermere was, and still is, a great place to fish. Everyday there are people out in their boats, or standing on the bridge or down at the dam, trying their luck at catching a ‘water wolf’ just like in this photograph.

When the civic building was still new, these two stuffed and mounted fish were hung in the stairwell. But they have found a

The annual Life’s Too Short’s event has been showing the community that slowing down, and not taking things for granted is important. Previous Life’s Too Short’s activities have included a hockey tournament at John Peake Park, and Random Acts of Kindness by giving out coffee and gift cards. This year, Life’s Too Short’s is going back to the basics by hosting a free community barbeque, games, music, and afternoon full of laughs at Camp Chestermere, on Sept. 9 at 12.

Hiking for a good cause Hiking to raise funds for Catholic Church By Emily Rogers The sixth annual Angels on High fundraiser is working towards building a Catholic Church in Chestermere. From Sept. 7 to Sept. 9 Chestermere residents and Church goers can participate in two hikes varying in difficulty, while staying the weekend at the Kananaskis Owl Group Campground. “When I think of other fundraisers it usually means a community dinner and dance, or raffles, which is always fun, but not always unique,” said organizer of the Angel on High fundraiser Sarah Papke. She added that although everyone at the Saint Gabriel Parish Church see’s one another each week, they don’t always know each other on a personal level. Hiking together and working towards the same goal creates lifelong friendships with like-minded people, who are passionate about building community, and who are coming together for the same cause, Papke said. She added the idea of hiking to raise funds to build a new Catholic Church in Chestermere originated when her husband and Father John were hiking together. “It seemed unique, engaging, something different, everyone got out, it was

good for fellowship, and seemed like a good fit,” Papke said. “Building a church is really hard work just like climbing a mountain, so we decided to stick with that,” Papke added, “We wanted to get people involved and inspired.” With every change of Priest within the last six years, the Angels on High fundraiser changes slightly too, however Papke is determined to achieve their goal of having their own spiritual space within approximately five years. “Last year we hiked Sulphur Mountain. Before this the mountains were bigger, and more technical, but we thought if we did something smaller, it would be more family friendly,” Papke said. She added, “Serious climbers said they missed climbing something impressive.” Since April, hikers have been taking pledges, and training to climb Mount. Lougheed, or hike on Lillian Lake. Which shows the commitment that everyone at the church has invested into building a spiritual home, Papke said, rather than renting out St. Gabriel The Archangel school gym. “Having our own space would do a lot for us, and in return we could do a lot of the community,” Papke added.

Papke said, this year the Saint Gabriel Parish Church has a goal of raising $50,000. “If we keep doing this, and plug away, hopefully one day we’ll have a church,” Papke added, “This year we have 10 acres of land within Chestermere. That’s a big push to forge on.” For Papke, a favorite part of the weekend is staying at the Kananaskis Owl Group Campground. “A lot of people come camping that don’t hike.” The campers are supportive of the hikers, and cheer everyone on as they come back. The children make banners to hang around the camp site Papke said. During the camping weekend, everyone participates in a mass together in the morning, there’s a party to celebrate, a potluck dinner, music, and games, she added. “It’s a good weekend of fellowship, food and fun,” Papke said, “I’m looking forward to the conversations, the laughs, and the time spent together with no cell phones, and no rushing around.” First time Angels on High hiker Vanessa Brown said she thought participating in the Mount. Lougheed scramble would be a great opportunity to meet new people.

The sixth Angels on High fundraiser, is raising proceeds to build a Catholic Church in Chestermere. The weekend of Sept. 7 until Sept. 9 is full of celebrations, and bonding experiences, from a group hike, mountain scramble, to a group camp. Photo submitted

“This summer I’ve participated in a couple different fundraisers, this one because I like hiking, and the other because I ride a motor bike. “What this does for me personally is now something that I do and enjoy I am doing it for a purpose beyond myself,” Brown added, “Something that helps the community, and meets a

need, it makes what I do and naturally enjoy doing that much more meaningful.” Papke added, Chestermere residents can support the hikers by pledging to them, by hiking the family friendly Lillian Lake hike, or by camping with the group for the weekend. Papke hopes that the Angel on High fundraiser will

benefit the community and make it a safer, happier, and inclusive place. She added, “This is a cause I hope everyone gets behind.” To register for the Lillian Lake High or to camp at the Kananaskis Owl Group Campground visit the Saint Gabriel Parish Church website at

FCP Announce Founding Convention Convention and leadership vote to be held in October By Jeremy Broadfield Alberta’s newest conservative party has announced the date for their founding convention and leadership vote. The Freedom Conservative Party (FCP) will hold the convention on Oct. 20 in Chestermere.

new party’s policies, constitution, elect the Board of Governors and select the party’s first leader. “Conservative Albertans deserve a party that lets them - not the leader dictate or veto the party’s policies,” said FCP InterimLeader Derek Fildebrandt.

“In the FCP, the members hold the pen on policy and have a real grassroots guarantee that they will not be ignored,” he said. Anyone wanting to participate in the founding convention must be a member of the party. While the convention date

has been set, the leadership race rules have not been released yet. In an Aug. 21 press release the party said that the, “Rules for the FCP’s leadership race will soon be announced by the Leadership Election Committee.” The process for party

Abundance of Trees coming to Chestermere Tree Canada adding greenery to city By Emily Rogers Chestermere is welcoming 100 trees to the canal, in order to make the area green, lush, and a destination point for residents. Since 2016, Chestermere has worked directly with Tree Canada, a tree planting charity, said Chestermere’s Lead Hand of the Parks Department Alison Ciupa. “Tree Canada’s mandate is to ensure they are providing trees to communities who might otherwise not be able to afford to plant them, or who need assistance,” Ciupa said. On Sept. 19 100 trees will be planted by Tree Canada, and a team of volunteers from CNA Canada Calgary Branch. To accommodate 100 new trees the city will be measuring plant beds, removing the first layer of grass, digging holes, and adding lakeweed compost to the site, which will take multiple days. “The better you prep the site the more successful the trees will be,” Ciupa said. “We hope for a good survival rate. We do assume that some of the trees will die, as things grow we might have to do a selective removal to make all the trees fit.” Ciupa added, if a selective removal does occur the trees could potentially be taken to a more suitable location depending on the size of the plant. Ciupa said she believes planting with Tree Canada

is well worth the hard work, and the time it takes the city to prepare, as the trees from previous years have done well and are thriving. For over 25 years Tree Canada has donated 84 million trees said Community Advisor of Tree Canada for over a decade Gerard Fournier. “We select trees that are going to thrive in the area we plant them. We’ve always had a strong infinity of planting native

trees, so they don’t just survive they actually thrive,” Fournier said. He added, the species of trees that will be planted in Chestermere include willow, poplar, oak, spruce, and pine. Increasing the number of trees in a community helps to improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen Fournier said. “There is way too much carbon dioxide in the air, on our planet, due to human activity in the last 150 years.

“We’ve produced way too much carbon and that’s what is changing our planet, and not for the better it’s changing our planet for the worse,” Fournier added, “It’s causing warming, and strange anomalies that we’re getting in the Calgary area.” Trees not only combat climate changes, Fournier added, but they also have local benefits. By providing shade, which cools the earth, providing shelter, preventing erosion, and by absorbing and intercepting harmful minerals which cause allege blooms on the lake. “Trees roots helps to purify the water. There’s a whole bunch of services that trees provide to us, wherever they are planted,” Fournier added, “In our climate in southern Alberta trees require a little bit of care from us before they start returning the services they provide. “People feel better around trees, there’s a psychological lift walking through a place that has trees. People naturally feel better around trees,” he said. “We’re absolutely delighted to help Chestermere, they do such a great job for us in preparing the planting sites and in the ongoing maintenance of the trees for the first couple of years. “Chestermere does a great job watering and looking after our trees and helping us out with these tree planting events,” Fourier added, “Hats off to Chestermere.”

Most of us make every effort to remain healthy with regular medical, dental and eye examinations. However, many overlook the importance of regular hearing assessments and care. Whether it’s constant exposure to loud noise, the effects of aging or any other reason, hearing loss is often so gradual that it frequently goes unnoticed and untreated. Hearing loss can occur at any age. It is invisible, usually painless, and often develops so slowly that you are not aware that your hearing is failing until everyone starts to complain. It is natural to experience some hearing loss through aging. Numerous people over the age of 65 have hearing problems significant enough to interfere with conversation. For many older adults, social contacts are already reduced due to retirement, living alone or far away from family, or the death of friends or spouse.

Laughing for a good cause Local comedy show supporting mental health

Letters to The Editor Response to Dawn Samuel’s letter of Aug 23

Laugh Madness is showing support to mental illness by hosting Laugh Madness 7: Stand Up For Mental Health on Oct. 6, at the CRCA Main Hall in Chestermere Alta. Organizer of Laugh Madness Arnold Henry has battled with mental health in the past, and is ready to educate the community on the disease. Photo submitted.

By Emily Rogers The annual Laugh Madness comedy show is bringing light to heavy themes such as mental illness. Laugh Madness 7: Stand Up For Mental Health will be supporting World Mental Health Awareness on Oct. 6 beginning at 6 p.m., in the CRA Main Hall in Chestermere said founder and organizer of Laugh Madness Arnold Henry. “We want to help end the stigma surrounding mental health. I’ve had two friends who I know personally from Chestermere who have committed suicide. “With raising awareness on mental health, we are hoping to educate everyone on the challenges [of mental illness] and [learn] what we can do as a community to support sufferers,” Henry added. Henry recently posted his story about battling mental illness on Facebook. He said, “My ‘Day Ones’ may know of the years of hard work and sacrifices I had to face, but my memories will know best of all the dark, lonely roads I have to run away from. The battles with demons in my head and letting go of the negativity in my past.” Henry added, “Between

2011 and 2013 I had to win and I’m grateful for the support I had received back then through psychotherapy sessions, friends and family. Life is continuing to bless me, seeing all my hopes and dreams coming true. I wish the same for you, you’re never alone.” During Laugh Madness 7: Stand Up For Mental Health there will be a variety of activities throughout the night, such a spokesperson who will briefly educate guests on the topic of mental health, five-plus local comedians with headliner Todd Ness, and Lori Ferguson will be hosting the comedy show with DJ Sherman Hype. A photo booth will also be at the venue for guests to capture memories with friends and family, along with gourmet food, and door prizes sponsored by local businesses. “We’re hoping for another sold out event,” Henry added, “Laugh Madness isn’t your typical comedy club. To experience the laugh madness, you have to be a part of it. You just never know what to expect.” Laugh Madness was founded in 2015 after Henry and his spouse realized Chestermere needed other

forms of entertainment. A close friend to Henry, Gilson Lubin a Canadian Comedian, encouraged Henry to organize the comedy show. “I eventually took his advice and ran with it. With Laugh Madness the intention was to promote togetherness within our community.” Henry knew he couldn’t go wrong with organizing a comedy show, he added, “Laughter is good for the soul.” Throughout the years Laugh Madness has grown and evolved to be an event that residents look forward to, with selling out shows within a matter of days. Henry added. “We couldn’t have done it without the support of our community members of Chestermere. Everyone always comes out in large numbers to have fun and at the same time, supporting a worthy cause.” Although there is no dress code for Laugh Madness 7: Stand Up For Mental Health, Henry encourages guests to wear green T-Shirt to show their support for mental illness awareness. Henry added, “Due to the popularity of our show, we have limited it to invited guests only for the Laugh Madness 7 show.”

When I came to live here 44 Years ago, in the HAMLET of CHESTERMERE, a nice rural setting, Eastlakeview Rd was a gravel Rd with no streetlights,sidewalks,water or sewer, and a speed limit of 50 km and we did just fine. My child never had any problem going to school. Camp Chestermere was long here before I came to live here, and had no problem. Some years ago it was looked at having more streetlights, but voted down because it was too costly. I for one do not want to pay more taxes. My taxes went from 2011 being $2400.00 to 2018 almost $5000.00. I am now a senior and do not want to be taxed out of my house that we worked so hard for. At one point in time the speed limit was brought back to 40, but did not work, so it was put back to 50. What happened to people having the responsibility for their own well being, and teaching their kids certain rules? I am tired of people trying to change everything here, if you do not like it here, there is a solution “MOVE”, nobody is holding you back. I moved here to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city, not to be bombarded by city slickers in their big monster houses. Sincerely M C (Ria) Smit. Sanctioned Councilor As a long term resident, I feel that we are entering the most important and challenging times in the history of Chestermere, and with this in mind, it becomes critical, that we all work together, in a strong and cohesive group, I believe it will take a tremendous amount of work to set the proper

course for our ship. With these thoughts in mind, I wanted to touch on the issues that Ms. Bold has encountered recently, regarding the sanctioned issues that have come up recently. Even though I don’t agree with her approach on addressing some of these challenges, I do want to say that I respect her past work in this community, and that this type of energy and engagement is badly needed, especially, at a time, where the challenges are huge and complex. We need elected officials who ask the tough questions, and expect a total commitment from our administration, if an elected official feels that the administration is not coming forth with the answers to tough questions, then we need to put those employees on notice, that this is not acceptable, period. I personally believe that perhaps a number of changes may be in order, so that we can be a strong and united front, with any new council, especially one that is 100% new, it’s critical that all parties are on the same page, without this commitment from all employees, the ship will not set sail in the right direction, and this, we can’t afford as a City, especially one that is growing very fast, and experiencing some financial challenges now and in the future. We have a new CAO on board now, and I suspect that changes will be coming, hopefully, these changes will help our City reach the goals and heights that Chestermere deserves, moving forward into the future. I want to see the Laurie Bold’s of the world succeed, but at the same time, in order to succeed, one needs a plan and methodology to do the job well, I wish Laurie Bold and the rest of our Council all the best moving forward, and reaching those goals and achievements that all citizens wish for. Regards, P. D. Graham.

Many Chestermerians are recovering Calgarians, or at least have a passing familiarity with the big city to the west. As a transplanted Maritimer, the first place I lived in Alberta was a Calgary neighborhood called the Marda Loop, located just a bit north of downtown. Back in the early 80s, when I was but a towheaded small boy, the Marda Loop neighbourhood was my first experience living in a big city, and was the site of many formative experiences. I recall learning to swim in the community pool, the latch-key kid phenomenon of walking a kilometer to elementary school without supervision in those carefree days before helicopter parents, spending my allowance at My Favorite Ice Cream Shoppe, and many other treasured memories. The Marda Loop was adjacent to the Currie Barracks, so many of my school chums were army brats who would be uprooted every few years when the family received a new posting. The closure of CFB Calgary in 1998 led to rapid redevelopment of the adjacent Marda Loop neighbourhood, with the military base housing quickly converted to the desirable community

of Garrison Woods. The influx of population drove demand for retail and commercial services, leading to rapid gentrification of what was a neighbourhood in the throes of urban decay, full of run-down houses and failing businesses. Today, the Marda Loop is one of Calgary’s most desirable inner-city neighbourhoods, and many of the 1950s-era housing and commercial buildings have been replaced with fancy condos, coffee houses, and as of last week, its own craft brewery! The Marda Loop Brewing Company has opened to great fanfare, and I fought the crowds to sample their wares on opening day, despite the sweltering heatwave wracking Alberta at the time. The food menu is limited to French fries, French fries, and more French fries, which you can have with your choice of countless fancy dips. I chose a swanky garlic aioli and spicy ketchup to dip the chips, and settled in to sample the entire gamut of sweet malty nectars directly from the brass teats in the tasting room. In a clever marketing ploy, the brewery built excitement long before they

opened by engaging with the boozing public on social media, inviting fans to submit and vote on names for their different brews, each of which reflect a historical facet of the neighbourhood. The Passchendaele Pale Ale pays sombre respects to the WWI Battle of Passchendaele, a mud-caked hellscape in the Flanders region of Belgium that was liberated by Canadian soldiers. The nearby Currie Barracks are named for the commander of the Canadian Corps in the Great War. The Passchendaele Pale Ale is made with Belgian yeasts for a complex bouquet, with local Alberta barley for a well balanced malt backbone. With mild bitterness, it is a flavourful and highly sessionable pale ale. The Jenkins Grapefruit Ale is named for Mark and Mada Jenkins, considered the founding family of the neighbourhood back in the 1950s, and owners of the iconic Marda Theatre, which later became the Odeon Theatre where I would surreptitiously sneak into R-rated movies as a mischievous ten-year old boy. With plenty of refreshing grapefruit notes and a crisp and clear finish, this is the perfect patio beer on a

hot day. The Casablanca Blonde pays homage to the eponymous video store of the same name, which was the go-to for local film buffs before NetFlix destroyed the retail video store industry. An easy-drinking blonde ale, this one is perfect for tempting your macrobrewswilling friends into the world of craft beer. The Red Trolley Amber Ale denotes the trolley cars that would toil up the steep hill from downtown Calgary before looping around the neighbourhood and returning downtown, with the occasional brake failure on the steep hill resulting in catastrophe. I like a sturdy malt backbone in my amber ales, and Red Trolley delivers, with the perfect balance between the rich toasted barley and bittering hops. The Marda Station IPA was my favourite, named for the streetcar station, and uses Belgian yeasts and highly aromatic hops for a complex bouquet and distinctive hop bite without being overwhelmingly bitter. Whatever your passion, Marda Loop Brewing has the cure for what ‘ales’ you, so pay them a visit on your next trip to the big city.

PAWS for Thought Steve King is the President of The Community Therapy Dogs Society email:

A Neighbourhood Movement Jobs with dogs How many neighbours does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: not as many as you might think. How many people are needed to create change in a community? When a neighbourhood or city is facing a challenge, what percentage of people can transform and reshape a conversation for the better? Consider for example if a neighbourhood wanted to rally together to build a new playground, deal with crime, push for a new policy, or create a more welcoming city. Would we need most people to join the movement? Just a few? Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have been working to answer this question and they discovered that if about 25% of people in a community worked together to bring about a change, they would have what it takes to change opinions and practices. I’ve found this to be true here in Chestermere. A handful of teachers and kids helped change attitudes about bees. A young man and his friends helped make improvements to the skateboard park. A small group of people started a

church community. Just a few people redeveloped a youth program. A few dozen people make amazing block parties happen. The list goes on. So many of the exciting community projects that make our city thrive are often started and sustained by a few people with big passion. Malcolm Gladwell wrote along similar lines, “Look at the world around you. It may see like and immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push in just the right place, it can be tipped.” You and a few of your neighbours have the power to change Chestermere, to influence the conversation, to start and sustain meaningful social change that has the potential to make a big difference in your life, in the lives of others, and for the wellbeing of your whole community.

The question is, what movement is already starting in your neighbourhood? What good changes are brewing where you live, among your neighbours? We often discover the hopes and dreams of others when we sit and listen, dream, and ask good questions together. Knowing that it might not take the whole community to make a community better should give us hope. It takes just a few people to begin. May you discover the places and people, your allies, who can work together with you to make vital changes to your neighbourhood and city. May you discover the joy of caring for your place and calling out the best in others. Your neighbourhood is worth the effort, and rallying together for a better community is a hopeful cause. We love our city, and together we can move it forward.

It wasn’t that long ago that the only careers involving dogs were either becoming a veterinarian, being a dog trainer or running a dog boarding facility. The dreams of many a child of doing something with a dog that involved making money soon evaporated either because of the academic requirements needed to become a vet, the lack of training courses or the cost of buying or developing a boarding facility. Not so today! Never before have so many opportunities to work with dogs been available: • Doggy day care assistant: with people now more aware of the needs of dogs to play and be around other dogs, there has been a rapid growth in the number of facilities offering doggy day care. Opportunities to get hands on experience caring for dogs abound. • Dog walker: many people are choosing to employ professional dog walkers to take their dog(s) for walks for a variety of reasons. • Dog groomer: with dog owners becoming more specific as to what their dogs should look like, the demand for grooming has grown significantly in recent

years. The growth has also been driven by the number of non-shedding or hypoallergenic breeds that require regular grooming due to the lack of shedding. • Puppy house sitter: a lot of people now prefer to have someone come to their home to look after their dog rather than put them in a boarding facility. • Puppy play mate: service dog organizations employ people to play with new born puppies to help with socialization. • Show dog handler: learn how to present and walk a dog at dog shows. • Veterinary technician: work as a support staff member in a veterinary clinic. • Rescue organization helper: although a number of volunteers generally help in this not for profit sector, there are often paid positions available, depending on the size of the organization. • Retail store assistant: there are now more pet stores and specialty canine goods stores as a result of people wanting to pamper or add to the quality of their pets’ lives. • Pet artist/ photographer: there is growing demand for pet pictures/

photos. • Dog trainer: although not a new profession, there is now a more comprehensive array of courses that can be taken to learn to become a dog trainer. Whether you’d like to become more of a generalist trainer or work towards becoming a specialist in one or more areas, for example aggressive dog behaviourist, there are courses, combining theory with hands on experience, available. • Pound worker: work with a city pound, either caring for dogs or rescuing abused or lost dogs. • Researcher or research assistant: many universities offer positions for research into canine behaviour, often linked with veterinary courses. • Boarding facility assistant/ owner: the growth in the number of dogs being kept as pets and people taking vacation has led to more boarding facilities opening, with a greater variety of services being offered. The list above will hopefully give you some ideas so, if you’re looking for a change of career or just finishing high school, you may want to consider one of the many ways you could work with man’s best friend.

TV Feature

Driving into the action By Joy Doonan TV Media Fans of the wildly popular FX production “Sons of Anarchy,” which premiered in 2008, have deeply felt the show’s absence since it ended in 2015. It was one of the network’s most successful series to date, pulling fans in with its gritty premise — it followed the internal politics of an armsdealing biker gang in the fictional town of Charming, Calif. — and making them stay with its surprisingly enduring human stories. Now, the show’s much-anticipated spinoff, “Mayans M.C.,” will revive this rich fictional world when it premieres Tuesday, Sept. 4, on FX. The new series, featuring a fresh batch of characters, exists within the same universe as its predecessor but tells a completely new and independent story, creator Kurt Sutter revealed at a Television Critics Association press tour. Fans who are hungry for a crossover won’t be disappointed, however, as Sutter also revealed there will be cameos from familiar faces and flashbacks that clearly establish the two mythologies as part of the same world. Notably, Emilio Rivera, who plays Marcus Alvarez, leader of a rival gang to the titular Sons of Anarchy, will be a recurring presTHURSDAY PRIMETIME 6 PM

ence in “Mayans M.C.” In an interview with Entertainment Tonight at Comic Con 2018, “Mayans” cast members agreed that Rivera’s character “is the glue that cements the Sons of Anarchy with the Mayans.” Adding to the fanfare, Sutter also teased that the premiere of “Mayans M.C.” would feature an appearance from “Sons of Anarchy” character Gemma Teller Morrow (Katey Sagal, “Married… with Children”), whose reputation as a ruthless gang matriarch made her both a loved and hated fan favourite. Sarah Bolger (“The Tudors”) is a new face, infusing the plot with some scintillating drama as the high-profile wife of a cartel boss, as well as a love interest to protagonist Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” 2012). As the series opens, EZ, a young Chicano man, is a new prospect looking to join the Mayans Motorcycle Club. Flashbacks reveal that he was once a successful student looking forward to a promising future, but his vision for the road ahead was torn away from him by cartel violence on the California-Mexico border. Having lost his former potential, he now seeks revenge, redemption and the respect of his childhood sweetheart, Emily (Bolger), by way of becoming a full-fledged

Emilio Rivera in “Mayans M.C.”

Mayan, smuggling heroin for the Galdino cartel from the cover of his family’s butcher shop business. EZ faces the pressure of family legacy to boot, as his older brother is already a prized member of the Mayans at the show’s outset. The “Sons of Anarchy” storyline ended with the death of Jax Teller, the Sons’ leader whose character arch was defined by his gradual descent into ruthless violence and loss of a moral compass. While this plot has been laid to rest, EZ’s beginnings as a naive young man on the brink of darkness gives fans a fresh context to invest in the same themes of redemption and loss of humanity that they loved in the original series.

In the season 1 trailer recently released by FX, EZ’s father, Felipe Reyes (Edward James Olmos, “Battlestar Gallactica”), is seen in the butcher shop, bathed in shadow and removing a gun from its case. “You’re in this now, son,” he then says to EZ, “there’s no getting out.” Viewers can expect Pardo to take on this challenge with the same fervour as his eager-toplease character. On a Comic Con panel, he regaled the audience with how he convinced Sutter to cast him for the lead role by pitching his passion. “How about you give me 45 minutes, I’ll go outside, I’ll memorize these lines and just kick some [butt],” he recalled telling Sutter, according to CinemaBlend.

Chestermere High School Athletics Brian Utley -



AUGUST 27, 2018 The 2018-2019 athletics season has started with a football exhibition game. Next week, once school starts, all fall sports ramp up. If you have any questions contact Athletic Director, Tanya Everson. FOOTBALL The Chestermere Lakers headed to Medicine Hat for an exhibition game with the McCoy Colts this past weekend and came home with a 22-7 win. While this was a game focused on teaching and evaluating, it was still a competitive affair. The Lakers had big contributions on offense from Dakota Konschuh who ran and caught the ball very well and had a touchdown on the ground. As well, Nathan Porterfield caught Jaden Hiebert’s lone touchdown pass. The defensive front played fantastic led by Kalum Konschuh and Mitch Tessemaker at linebacker. On the back end Zain Baig stepped up and made some big plays. This week the Lakers start their regular season play in Airdrie against the Bert Church Chargers. The game is Thursday at 4:00 in Airdrie. (Written by Coach Ledieu) STANLEY CUP Football coach, Scott Ledieu, had a special thrill last week as he attended an event where the Stanley Cup was on display. ALUMNI ACHIEVEMENTS If anyone ever has information on Chestermere graduates playing post-secondary athletics please let me know. I report as much as I have information on, but do not always receive information on all alumni and all sports.

Developing youth through sport

Chestermere Chiefs PeeWee program looks to develop well rounded kids By Jeremy Broadfield As the football season gets underway for the PeeWee Chestermere Chiefs, Head Coach Theo Price’s goals for the season stretch well beyond the field of play. For Price, he wants to guide his players into being successful well-rounded people, not just football players. “There’s lots of football players out there but it’s trying to build little humans that can go on to succeed in life,” said Price. “I want these kids to go to college, we want them to go to high school you want them to go do all their dreams and realize that if you work hard you can accomplish all these feats by just working hard and working for another person going for one goal,” he said. And for Price, football is

the ideal team sport to help these kids develop the skills they’ll need in life. “It takes 12 people on a field doing something in synchronization to perfection to get even 5 let alone ten yards let alone a touch down so it teaches these kids accountability, it teaches them to look out for one another,” he said. The coaching staff’s goal is to teach the kids not to just work as a team on the field but to take those skills off the field and into their day to day lives. “We want these kids to grow up in the community of Chestermere to be leaders in this community,” he said. If these goals are met, Price said he doesn’t actually care about how many games they win or touchdowns they score. That being said, Price does want to go out and compete

in every game. “I want to win just as much as anybody else,” he said, “I’m not in this thing to go out and lose every game, that’s not fun to me.” And the Chiefs will have their work cut out for them this year, with their numbers down a bit from past years they are going up against Calgary teams that cut more kids than the Chiefs have on their roster. This year they have just over 30 kids on the team. “The quantity might be down but the quality is really, really high,” said Price of his team. The Chestermere Chiefs practice at the Chestermere High School Field. “There’s some good footPhoto Submitted ball players, there’s some sports. he said. really good athletes,” he “It’s a big hockey town,” With the knowledge that said. said Price. he’ll lose the occasional Adding to their roster woes “Once September rolls player to hockey, Price said is the fact that once hockey around we can lose anyhe’d prefer to have about 36 season starts up, they often where between five to 10 players on the team. see game day absences from kids on a given game day,” While the loses to his rosplayers competing in both

Provincial News Leela Sharon Aheer UCP MLA Hello Chestermere! I am sorry for missing you last week, and I hope you have had a wonderful, though very smoky August. I am as always so humbled by so many people who do such amazing work for our community, and in doing so brings together the spirit of our community, our openness to new ideas, brings culture into our lives, and helps us to grow together. I was so happy to attend the Show ‘n Shine at the Rec Centre, It was a bit cool in the morning but Mother Nature blessed the Chestermere Show N Shine with a great afternoon. Over 200 cars were on display and a bunch of money was raised for some great causes: Easter Seals Camp Horizon, the Chestermere Food Bank, and the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre. For those of you not familiar with AARC it is a privately funded organization that helps youth with addiction issues. Dr. Dean Vause, the founder of AARC, calls addiction “The Equal Opportunity Destroyer” and he’s right. It can happen to anyone. Easter Seals Camp Horizon provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors to people with disabilities, and anyone who lives in Chestermere knows the good work that the Food Bank does for our neighbours experiencing a rough patch in their lives. Thanks to John Kittler from Dockside Bar and Grill, the title sponsor and

the “voice” of the Show N Shine (and no, we didn’t get sick of your voice), the Lakeside Kruzers Car Club, the rest of the great sponsors, and all the exhibitors who paid to put their vehicles on display. As John said, without them “We would be looking at an empty field”. Thanks to all the volunteers who made things run smoothly. Special thanks to everyone who showed up, bought 50:50 tickets from the “PinUp Girls”, and donated in other ways to these great charities. Also congratulations to the organizers of our first Pride Week in the Park. Love, community and acceptance was the theme and there was incredible entertainment, and a wonderful BBQ. Thank you to all the incredible volunteers and to the City of Chestermere for supporting this wonderful event and the painting of the sidewalks on August 23, 2018. We have pictures of all these events and more on our Facebook. I was honoured to attend a “blessing to the land” (Bhumi Pujan) for the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha Inc (BAPS) for a new Mandir that will be built just South of Cross Iron Mills. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers, and to president Chandrakant Sachdev and Hemant Gadhia for the invitation. On average these days, due to demand, oil is at about $60 per barrel. That is for West Texas Intermediate. This is good, because our economy will always benefit from higher and more stable oil prices. So what does that mean for you, the average Albertan? Well, as the economy improves, hopefully around your dinner tables, we see more employment, and even more importantly, the quality of those jobs. This

is where we see issues. Check out this article from the CBC news “Alberta’s slowly recovering economy a challenge for many, ATB report says”: (http:// calgary/alberta-economyatb-financial-todd-hirschgrowth-gdp-jobs-employment-1.4798157). We are seeing a rise in part time jobs, but we are seeing obvious declines in investment in Canada, and especially Alberta, and with trade negotiations at a stand still with our biggest trading partner the USA, we have to demand that our present governments both provincially and federally, explain to Canadians what the vision is? I am completely at a loss at this moment to understand why how politicized pipelines have become. Pipelines have become a social issue where the National Energy Board is being replaced by an Impact Assessment Act, which is already stopping investment due to uncertainty. Why are still importing oil from Saudi Arabia. We could use our own oil, keep billions of dollars in Canada where it belongs, supply our own country, refine our own product, build our own national infrastructure, lower emissions by producing ourselves and by not buying from a country that has lower standards both environmentally and with respect to human rights. We have an incredible opportunity to build Canada and elevate our own country? Why are we not jumping onto building energy east? We need to revive this national infrastructure. What an opportunity for national unity, prosperity, and pride. Our Premier can not just use words to defend our industry. She can not just speak out against her leader Jagmeet Singh and expect to inspire

the masses. This is such an amazing opportunity for Alberta to demand that the federal government get Energy East built and let’s get our beautiful, clean and environmentally conscious product to the East and lets start rebuilding our province and our country. Let’s get our products to the coasts so that we can compete with carbon leakage, and let’s get Canada to the rest of the world. This must be our mandate. We must be stronger, and we must stand up for

John Ellison passed away peacefully, surrounded by his wife and daughters, after a brief stay in the Rosedale Hospice in Calgary, Alberta on August 14, 2018, at the age of 75. John was born in Windsor, Ontario and moved west early in his life. He met his wife, Donna, in Edmonton and moved to Calgary in 1980. John was an owner/operator for Turbo for over 25 years and an owner/operator for Esso for over ten years. In his later years, John was a salesman for The Home Depot, earning national sales awards as a home appliance salesman. A resident of Chestermere for 30 years, John enjoyed the outdoors. In his early years, he was an avid hunter and fisherman. John loved music; he will best be remembered for his singing voice, especially his rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” John was someone who would give the shirt off his back to help someone less fortunate. He taught his children to be charitable, to always treat others with kindness, and to be forgiving. John was compassionate and loved his family tremendously. John is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Donna; his daughter Shawn (Clayton); daughter Jackie (Andrew); and grandchildren Oakley, Harley, and Dani. At John’s request, no services will be held. Those wishing to express their condolences may do so by donating to the Rosedale Hospice in remembrance of John by visiting:

Week of September 03. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little “wool-gathering” for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful; too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted won’t be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be timeconsuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesn’t seem all that certain about their intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Get

all the facts about that investment “opportunity” before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could prove to be costly. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. BORN THIS WEEK: You’re sought out for the wonderful advice you’re able to offer to others. And sometimes you even take it yourself.
