CMCA AUDITED

By Emily Rogers The thoughts of kind neighbours in a community is thriving in Chestermere after a local family hosted a lemonade stand to help another family after a devastating accident occurred. On Aug. 6 from 10 a.m., to 2 p.m., locals and beach goers first stop of the day was at the lemonade stand set up in the Rec Centre parking lot. “We’re fundraising for the Avery’s, they’re really close friends,” Noa Halat who was working in the lemonade stand with his two siblings Farrah Halat and Daliyah Halat said. “It’s nice to help out people and do as much as you can to support them,” Noa added. The Halat’s surpassed they’re goal of raising $50 during the lemonade stand fundraiser by raising $1000 for the Avery family. All of the proceeds made from the $2 lemonades and sodas went to the Avery family, who have recently been forced to make major changes in their everyday lives. Reg Avery was stung by a wasp on June 26, after the sting, he had an anaphylactic reaction. As a result, he has suffered brain trauma from lack of oxygen, said Alex Halat, a close family friend who knows the Avery’s through the Chestemere hockey community. “Since [Reg’s] recovery is unknown, and there

The Halat family organized and ran a lemonade stand for the Avery family on Aug., in the Chestermere Rec Centre parking lot. The Halats goal was to raise $50 while selling $2 lemonades and sodas, but they surpassed they’re goal and raised $1000 for the Avery’s. Photo by Emily Rogers

is no other income, we want to ensure Theresa and the boys don’t have to worry about finances while going through this emotional journey,” said Halat. “As a father it hits near and dear, everything we do is for our kids, and Reg is such a great guy. “To not have the ability to go to work and support your family, it hurts,” said Halat. “For us as a hockey community, we band together and help each other out,” he said. “At the end of the day we’re all here for one cause and that’s our kids. For me, this is where my kids grow up, I want the community to be loving and caring and not only that, but there’s more kids coming to help and give back.

“Our world is so consumed with work and everyone just looking after themselves we tend to forget other folks out there need help to,” Halat said. “The fundraiser went great. We have such amazing people in our community that came out to support such a great cause and family. That’s what makes Chestermere such an enjoyable place to live,” Halat added. The Avery family is overwhelmed with the support their family was received during the last five weeks. Reg Avery was at the lemonade stand as he had a weekend pass to go to Chestermere and spend time with his family during the August long weekend.

“It’s awesome. It’s phenomenal that the kids are doing this,” Avery said. “The community has been fantastic to us, ever since the beginning we’ve had such a pouring out,” Theresa Avery said. “For the kids to do this is just another example of how fantastic Chestermere has been to our family,” Theresa added, “We hope in the future we can pay it forward to this community.” Reg is now at the Foothills Reginal Hospital in the Neuro Unit, and has begun rehabilitation, Theresa said, “He is getting better each day, it’s just a matter of time.” To further help the Avery family please visit https://www.gofundme. com/the-avery-family.

Training camp underway for new Chestermere Chiefs Bantam team Continued from front

joining the Bantam program. “It’s good for our club…to have that level of football,” said Bailey. “Last year we didn’t have a Bantam team and we ended up losing players to Calgary teams,” he said. Along with giving kids a chance to play football with their home club, the Bantam program will also help the Chestermere High School Football team as kids entering high school will have had the chance to play two years of Bantam before trying out for the school team. While the advantages to having a Bantam program here in Chestermere are huge, Bailey said that the challenges of starting up are just as big. “You have to figure out what players are gonna play in what position,” he said, “you don’t have a set group of kids that have played the previous year in the same position.” In addition to building a team that can learn to play together without a core of veteran players from last season, there’s a lot of administrative and logistical work to be done before they play their first game. “We…had to get new equipment from scratch,” said Bailey. “We’re still getting kids pieced together with new kneepads and earpads, and some of them have helmets that are old, from old teams that don’t exist anymore, so it’s

been a challenge for a lot of reasons,” said Bailey. Another challenge has been getting all the players on the field for training camp. “Being the middle of summer, there’s a lot of kids that are still on vacation and stuff so it’s hard,” he said. “No one should really ever plan their vacation around minor sports, but once everybody is done from vacation then it’ll be a lot easier to place kids ‘cause we’ll have a full team,” he said. They are still looking for more players and coaches for the new team. “We’re eager for more players, we’re eager for more coaches, for any type of help we can get,” he said. Bailey is hopeful that everything will be ready to go by kickoff of their first game on Aug. 25. That first game will come with a steep learning curve for the Bantam Chiefs. “We play the defending city champions first game of the season, so it’s gonna be a really sharp learning curve,” he said. After that, when they see the level of football they need to play at Bailey expects things to get easier from there. Without out knowing the competitiveness of the Bantam league, Bailey said that aren’t setting the expectations too high for the season.

www.chestermerecitynews.ca

For them, the goal is to be competitive in every game, regardless of whether they win or lose. “If we’re competitive, you know, we could win one, two, maybe three or four or five games,” he said. “Even if we go 0-8, but we’re competitive, at least we can take…pride in that,” said Bailey. He doesn’t think a winless season is likely though. “We could field a fantastic team,” said Bailey. “We don’t have a lot of numbers, I think we’re only at thirty players, but of the thirty we have, there’s a lot of talented athletes,” he said. And although they’ve only had a few practices, Bailey said that all the kids are trying really hard. “It makes a difference,” he said. To for more information or to register a player go to chestermerechiefs.com. The new Chestermere Chiefs Bantam Football team held their fourth practice on Aug. 8.

Birth Forest giving children a sense of belonging

Families planting trees to celebrate the birth of a new child

Chestermere’s annual Birth Forest is giving local families an opportunity for their children to leave a legacy in the community. Families can go to the canal to plant a tree with a tag that has their child’s name on it on Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m. Photo submitted

By Emily Rogers The City of Chestermere is giving local families an opportunity for their children to leave a legacy in the community. On Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m., families can plant a tree on the canal pathway to celebrate the birth of a new child in Chestermere’s annual Birth Forest. “Registering a new child born during the calendar year is not necessarily a strict policy, anyone who wants to sign up to plant a tree for a child can,” said Chestermere’s Lead Hand of the Parks Department Alison Ciupa. “Parents just show up with their children,” Ciupa added. “We do a small presentation to discuss the history of the Birth Forest, and why trees are important for the environment, and then after we have juice and cookies,” she said. She explained that, “We have pre-dug holes, families are just filling the holes with soil. “We made it quite easy,

there’s not a lot of hard work involved,” Ciupa added, the trees are tagged with the child’s name. All the families are required to do is help to plant the trees, and after the city parks department waters the trees on a regular basis, she said. The Birth Forest location changes each year depending on the need for trees in a certain area in Chestermere. Ciupa said that the canal was chosen this year to be a planting site because the city wants to bring more trees and more life to the canal pathway. There are many aspects that determine what type of tree will be planted during the Birth Forest, such as the number of families registered, which is usually from 15 to 25 families, and the size of the planting site Ciupa said. Throughout the years, the city of Chestermere has planted a variety of trees including fruit trees, and trembling aspens, said Ciupa. Ciupa added, she has not yet decided on the type of

tree that will be planted for this year’s Birth Forest. Not only does planting a tree for a child give that child a sense of belonging, Ciupa said, it also benefits the community greatly. Such as, cleaning the air we breathe, providing oxygen, cooling streets, helping to prevent soil erosion, providing shade, providing food, and shading areas such as lawns that are thirsty, Ciupa added. “People really enjoy [the Birth Forest],” Ciupa added, “I hear from people that they go out to look at their tree and they enjoy the fact that it’s there.” To plant a tree in Chestermere’s Birth Forest residents are asked to fill out an online registration form on the city of Chestermere’s website. A $40 registration is required and can be paid at Chestermere City Hall. For additional information regarding Chestermere’s annual Birth Forest please visit www.chestermere.ca/198/ Birth-Forest.

Country Fair a staple event for Chestermere Beloved fair bringing the community together for another year By Emily Rogers The twenty ninth annual Chestermere Country Fair is giving residents and visitors alike an opportunity to experience an old-fashioned country fair while still incorporating urban roots. On Sept. 8 residents can begin their day with a parade at 9:30 a.m., that starts at the Chestermere Middle School and ends at the recreation centre. The rest of the Country Fair will take place at the Chestermere Rec Centre throughout the day. “We’re hoping for a warm fall day that will encourage residents to come enjoy the parade, grab some pancakes and enjoy everything the Country Fair has to offer,” Chestermere Agriculture Society Director, and Country Fair Coordinator Kim

Soderberg McRae said. Residents can expect the Red Ribbon competition, gymkhana, indoor market place and farmers market with a variety of local vendors. “For the farmers market all the vendors need to make, bake, or grow their own products. Our farmers market is an Alberta approved farmers market, which means that it has been approved by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and we must follow strict criteria with our vendors,” Soderberg McRae said. “Our indoor marketplace is not as strict. We have a mix of local businesses, handmade products, and direct sellers,” she added. New to the County Fair this year is mutton busting, Soderberg McRae added, “So far we have 21 children

registered. The mutton busting will be great entertainment.” There will also be a performance from the Chestermere Soundwaves at 11 a.m., and at the end of the day there will be a fall barbeque with guest Jennie Ogilvie, she added. However, Soderberg McRae said finding volunteers for the Country Fair is always a huge challenge. In order to get a greater number of local groups, and organizations involved in the fair, a $1000 from the Chestermere Agriculture Society will be offered to the business group or organization that puts the best activity into the Kids Zone, Soderberg McRae added. “We’re down a significant number of the Red Ribbon portion of the fair but we are very lucky to have some

local groups and organizations help us with various aspects,” she said. Local organizations that will be helping throughout the Country Fair includes Camp Chestermere that will be organizing parade participants and handing out the new parade trophy, the Lions Club that always

hosts a pancake breakfast during the fair, and the White Cappers who will be providing an old-fashioned kitchen with pie and ice cream. “Chestermere has some pretty amazing yearly events, and the Country Fair is one of those. It’s another way to bring the community

closer together and celebrate everything that makes Chestermere, Chestermere,” Soderberg McRae said. Tickets for the Country Fair are available on the Chestermere Agriculture Society website at www. chestermereagriculturalsociety.com

Cove Park set to reopen this fall

New natural play area ready for kids By Jeremy Broadfield With the final long weekend of the summer over, Chestermere’s Cove Park rehabilitation project is nearing completion. “The project’s gone really smoothly,” said Chestermere Parks and Recreation Manager Kathy Russell, “It’s been a really fun project.” She said that they laid the sod the last week of July. “Once you get to the sod

level you know, you’re 97 per cent complete,” said Russell. The project, which is both on time and on budget, has a few final amenities to install and some final landscaping before work will be complete. “We’ll have to get in there and do some final landscaping with our parks staff and then we still have to put in some things like shade sails, benches picnic tables,”

said Russell. She expects that work to be completed the first week of August. “Once those final amenities get put in its probably going to take 4-5 weeks for the sod to get established,” she said. While the sod is getting established, Russell said that it is important that the public stay off of it to prevent it being damaged. The construction fences will stay up during this time and city parks staff

will be watering the sod and landscaping daily. “We’re watering it out of the lake with pumps,” said Russell. “What the public would see right now is just periodic watering,” she said. In addition to the watering, staff will evaluate the condition of the park weekly to determine when it can be opened, something they plan to do as soon as possible. “We look forward to opening up the park for the public,” said Russell, “I think people will enjoy it a lot.” As long as the weather holds, she thinks that the fall will be a great time for people to come and experience the park and the new natural play areas. “The word of mouth I’m hearing is people are pretty excited and can’t wait to try it, to see what the playground is like,” said Russell. With the excitement around the new playground, Russell wants to remind people to be respectful of the neighbourhoods around the park when coming out to enjoy it. “It’s not a big park and there is no designated parking,” said Russell, “so we want to encourage everyone to be respectful of neighbourhoods close by and walk and bike.” In the public engagement that took place before the start of the rehabilitation project, Russell said that about 65 per cent of people walked or biked to Cove Park. “And so, we’re really

encouraging people to continue that practice,” she said. To encourage both walking or biking to the park and respectful parking practices, Russel said that some adjustments are being made to the parking in The Cove. On Cove road at the mailboxes near the entrance to the park, the city is instituting a 15 minute drop off and pick up zone. While their first choice is for people to walk and bike to the park, Rus-

sell suggested that those who do choose to drive could park, “along the fence line that borders the TransCanada Highway in the Cove or they could be parking somewhere over on the west side of the lake, in Lakepointe. “At the top of Lakepoint Drive, at the very top of the storm pond where you go into the off-leash area, there’s some parking there,” said Russell. “It’s not very far… probably a seven-minute walk,” she said.

AHS warns of the dangers of the heat and summer sun By Jeremy Broadfield

With temperatures spiking into the mid 30 degrees, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is reminding people to take precautions when working and playing outside in the extreme heat. “Certainly, we want everybody to be able to enjoy the warm weather, and the hot weather, but we want to make sure that everybody’s doing so safely and responsibly,” said AHS EMS Acting Public Education Officer Nate Pike, “The big things we’re stressing is largely the preventative pieces.” “Being aware of the fact that, obviously when we’re looking at temperatures in the mid- to highthirties, we have a much higher risk of heat exposure and heat-related illnesses,” he said. The most important thing to stay healthy in the heat is to drink water and stay hydrated. And while for many people this warm weather is the perfect patio or barbecue weather, Pike said that there is a big difference between drinking water and drinking alcoholic beverages. “There’s a difference between drinking water and drinking alcoholic beverages, because alcoholic beverages, while they may be somewhat refreshing, actually promote dehydration. “So, if you are drinking alcoholic beverages, making sure that you’re compensating for that dehydration process that happens by adding in lots of water,” he said. Pike said that AHS also recommends that people were broad brimmed hats to keep the sun off their face and neck. He said people also need to wear and reapply higher SPF sunscreen. “The peak times, typically, for the UV index to be particularly high, is between 11am and 3pm. “So, what we’re encouraging people to do is to make sure, especially during those periods, they’re applying a higher SPF sunscreen, but also making sure that they’re applying it at regular intervals,” said Pike. He said that a common mistake

people make is to assume that when they apply sunscreen before going out that it will last the day, a belief that often leads to sun burns. “The reality is that most sunscreens are only good for a couple hours, so making sure that you’re checking whatever the instructions are on the type of sunscreen that you have to make sure that you’re applying it, reapplying it at the appropriate intervals is really quite important,” said Pike. By taking these precautions, people can greatly reduce their risk of falling ill in the heat. “That’s sort of the broad messages that we’re getting out,” said Pike, “Take regular breaks from the heat, take regular breaks from direct sunlight.” While the risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke are reduced they’re never gone when the temperatures creep above 30 degrees Celsius. With heat exhaustion, common symptoms are headaches, feeling tired, nauseous, and sweating a lot. “That’s all stuff that can be fairly easily corrected by removing the person from the hot environment and then rehydrating them,” said Pike. Heat Stroke is when things get much more dangerous. “If somebody moves all the way to heat stroke, that’s where we’ve got real, life-threatening problems,” said Pike. A person suffering from Heat Stroke could have an altered level of consciousness and the body loses its ability to cool itself and a person will stop sweating. Pike said that when those symptoms appear, “that’s a 911 call for sure.” Young kids and the elderly are particularly susceptible to falling ill in the heat. “Typically younger kids, they’re not so good at recognizing the signs of heat exhaustion,” said Pike, “especially if a kid’s having a really fun time at the splash park, they’re not gonna remember to come back to mom and dad every little while to get that sunscreen reapplied.”

With seniors, the concern is both that the heat can affect them quicker but also that those with reduced mobility can have a harder time moving from a hot environment. “It certainly can affect the people on the younger end of the spectrum and people on the older end of the spectrum much, much quicker,” Another big danger, especially for kids, is being left in a car. The heat in a car can quickly reach lethal temperatures. “If you’ve ever been inside of a hot car in the summer, without the motor running, without the air conditioning running, the glass effectively acts as a magnifying glass,” said Pike. “Because there’s no airflow, and because it’s just basically a greenhouse, the heat in the car can go up very, very quickly, very, very fast,” he said. For kids left in a car seat, Pike said they can’t do anything to get themselves out of the heat. “And because, again, if we’re talking about children, we’re talking about the demographic that’s much more at risk for heat exhaustion and for potentially for heat stroke,” said Pike. With all of the vehicle thefts occurring in Chestermere, Calgary and the region, Pike also discourages people from leaving kids in a car with the air conditioning running. “I know that I’ve certainly seen messaging from…Calgary Police Service, talking about the importance of never leaving a car running, because it’s basically an open invitation for theft,” said Pike. While kids will stay cool with the air conditioning running, Pike said the danger is that they and the car will be gone when a person comes back out. “So even if it’s just for a minute or two, make sure that you get your kid out of the car seat, get your kid out of the car and bring them into the store with you,” he said. “As a parent myself, I know that trying to get a little bit of shopping done with younger kids can certainly be more work, but it’s just not worth the risk,” said Pike.

Helping our furry friends stay cool this summer By Jeremy Broadfield While the record heat wave has passed, there’s still lots of summer and hopefully fun in the sun to be had before the weather turns. With the continued good weather, Chestermere Veterinary Clinic’s Dr. Gabriela Rotaru said that its important pet owners watch for signs of overheating in their animals. “Puppies and long haired dogs can be more susceptible to heat so be aware and know what signs to watch for,” she said. Just like people, pets can suffer from dehydration and heat stroke as the mercury rises. Rotaru said that signs of over heating that people should watch out for include panting, hyper-salivating, tacky (sticky) gums that indicate dehydration, disorientation, staggering, collapse, vomiting, and diarrhea with blood. “Seek immediate veterinary attention if you suspect heatstroke in your pet, it can be fatal,” she said. Towels soaked in cold water should be placed on the overheated dog or cat. “Drive with windows down or with the AC on,” she said. Rotaru said that there are strategies people can use to help keep their pets cool. “Walk your dog early in the morning or later at night when it is cooler,” she said. She also recommends that when pets are left at home they are kept in a cooler part of the house such as the basement. It’s also important to provide fresh cold water for pets and to change it frequently. She said it’s also important to limit the amount of exertion by pets in the heat of the day. “Avoid strenuous exercise or long hikes in warm weather,” said Rotaru. “Be especially careful and limit exercise or play time for dogs or cats with heart disease,” she said. Finally, Rotaru stresses that pets should never be left unattended in a vehicle. “The car overheats very fast when it is warm outside,” she said. “If the outside temperature is 21 degrees Celsius, the inside car temperature in 10 minutes is 31 degrees Celsius, in 20 minutes is 37 degrees Celsius and in 30 minutes is 40 degrees Celsius,” said Rotaru. In those kinds of temperatures, pets can succumb to heatstroke quickly.

Getting to know what’s going on in the community

Energizer Night a crucial part of Chestermere extracurricular activities By Emily Rogers New families in Chestermere have the opportunity to see everything that the community has to offer during the annual Energizer Night at the Chestermere Regional Community Association. On Sept. 12 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. in the main hall of the Rec Centre over 50 clubs, services, and notfor-profit organizations will have tables set up to discuss the programs and activities offered throughout the year. “I Pegged [Energizer Night] as an opportunity for clubs and organizations to share information and take registration for upcoming programs and services in Chestermere and the surrounding area,” said Chestermere Recreation Program Coordinator Vicki Klinger. Organizations, services, and not-for-profits that will be in attendance for Energizer Night include Chiefs Football, the Chestermere Rotary Club, the White Cappers, new businesses in the city that have new fitness programs beginning, and non-traditional activities including crafts to get youths creativity thriving. Energizer Night has been a crucial community event for Chestermere residents for approximately 20 years, Klinger added, there are programs and activities offered for all ages, from small children to senior citizens. “Energizer Night is a really good overview, whether people are new to the city, especially if people are new, it’s really good to see everything that’s going on,”

Klinger added the Energizer Night is a great way for residents to get plugged into their community. “I always say there’s three things that people look for when they move to a community, one being what the school is like for their children, the second being what’s available for health care, and the third being what is there to do in the community,” Klinger said. She added, this year the Chestermere Rec Centre has a variety of options for different activities, and programs for families that many residents don’t know about, including swimming lessons at the Best Western Hotel. “We had over 150 kids sign up for swimming lessons, and we could only have five kids in a swimming class. There were over 50 classes going on,” Klinger added, “In the Spring we began offering swimming programs for adults and for special needs children ages three to 12. “We’re also really looking into offering more drop-in classes for teens, which can be good because parents aren’t always available to drive a child every Wednesday night for a 10-week program. “A drop-in class would be easier to get the child to a program once in a while,” Klinger added, “Parents don’t always want to travel to Calgary for activities.” For Klinger it’s important to get the youth in the community involved as much as possible, whether in afterschool programs or volunteer opportunities. “Anything that will connect people to different groups in

The annual Energizer Night is a great way for Chestermere residents to know what’s going on in the community with over 50 services, businesses, and not-forprofit organizations promoting their programs and activities on Sept. 12 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., in the Rec Centre main hall. Photo submitted

the community, keep youth active and involved, keep them healthy physically, and emotionally are important aspects,” she said. Previous Energizer Nights have gone fantastic, Klinger added, with an average of 200 to 300 families coming out to see what’s going on in their community. “It’s always hard to find out everything that’s going on, so this is the best way. Not only do you get to know about a program, but you get to meet the people who are running the program and get more details rather than just reading about it,” Klinger said. The Energizer Night is free to attend, and there is also an offered area for children to play while parents checking things out. Table spaces are still available until Sept. 7 and cost $25 for business and are free for not-for-profit organizations. For any inquiries please email Vicki Klinger at recreation@chestermereca.com.

Peace Officers set to Pack the Patrol Car for charity Chestermere protective and emergency services coming out in support of the food bank By Jeremy Broadfield Chestermere’s Peace Officer’s want to know how much food can be packed into one of their patrol cars. To find out, they have partnered with the other emergency services in the city and Safeway to Pack the Patrol Car Aug. 18 in support of the Chestermere Regional Food Bank. “What we’re trying to do is we’re trying to pack the PC, so we’re gonna fill up the patrol cars with as much food donations,” said event organizer Shawn Press, Level 1 Community Peace Officer with the City of Chestermere. To make, what Press is calling the first annual event a lot of fun and bring out the community they’ll have more than just the one patrol car there for the event. “We’re gonna be set up at the forefront of the Chestermere Safeway, right in the parking lot,” said Press. “We’re gonna have emergency services members there, firefighters, peace officers and what we’re doing is we’re gonna put a few of our members, including some firefighters, up on the rooftop as well as some boots on the ground, you know, entertaining the public and bringing some awareness to the local food bank,” he said. People will be able to come down and as they check out at Safeway with their groceries, purchase non-perishable food items that will be pre-prepared to then bring out to fill the patrol car. “People can come and pick up whichever bag they want, in whatever quantity or price that they want and go through the checkouts with the rest of their grocer-

ies and donate those items to our event,” said Press. As an added incentive, people making donations will be helping to ransom the peace officers and firefighters that are stranded on the roof of the building. “We’re gonna fill up the patrol cars…the fire trucks, the trailers, anything that we have out there. “And basically, until those things are full we’re not gonna let our members off the rooftops for the day,” said Press. At the end of the day, the donations will be packed into the fire department’s trailer and delivered to the food bank. “Our goal is to bring a

full trailer over to the food bank,” he said. Press, who has been a Peace Officer for almost five years, is relatively new to Chestermere having started here in March. This is the first event he is organizing in Chestermere but not the first he’s been involved with in his career. “I’ve hosted other events with kind of similar MO’s and it’s always involved in supporting your local community and your local charities,” he said. “And that’s exactly what we wanted to do here,” he said, “take similar ideas from other agencies or things that we’ve done in the past and just incor-

porate that into what we do here with the City of Chestermere.” Press said that the Chestermere Regional Food Bank was chosen because of the amount of support it provides to resident’s in need of a little help. “The local food bank here…supports quite a few internal types of events including their breakfast programs, their Meals on Wheels programs, and their hampers and things like that,” he said. “So, I just thought it’d be a great idea to take the combination of what we stand for as community peace officers and make sure that our event is hosted in such a

way that we’re giving back to that same community that we work for,” said Press. Along with the patrol car to fill with donations, there will be stickers and some swag for kids, interact with the firefighters and other emergency services members and have tours of the vehicles and equipment on site. There will also be a barbecue with food being purchased by donation to the food bank. “They’ll have a couple other things set up out there, some free popcorn, things like that,” said Press. They are hoping for good weather but Press said that as long as it is safe, Pack the

Patrol Car will happen rain or shine. “We’ll be playing it by ear,” said Press, “hopefully mother nature holds out and offers us a great day for a great event, but, the event will go off, rain or shine,” he said. Pack the Patrol Car is set to run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 18 at Chestermere Safeway. “If it continues on a little bit longer and we have great response and a huge turnout then we’ll play it by ear,” said Press. “We’ll be out there as long as it takes to make sure… that we have some donations to get back to the food bank,” he said.

Just a girl and her ewes Chestermere graduate wins Calgary Stampede scholarship By Emily Rogers Chestermere High School graduate Emma Gingras was rewarded for hard work and dedication she has put into showing her ewes. This year marked the eighth year that Gingras has been a part of the Calgary Stampede International Youth Livestock Scholarship. In order for Gingras to be eligible to win the scholarship she had to complete five components within the Summer Synergy competition, including marketing, conformation with animals,

showmanship, team judging and multi-judging. “I am preparing for these events when I pick my 4-H projects in March. I prepare for conformation by keeping my ewes and lambs clean and trimmed,” Gringas said. “I participate in multi judging clinics throughout the year. I work on my trimming skills whenever I am grooming my ewes or lambs,” Gringas added, “I work with all of my 4-H ewes and lambs in preparation for showmanship by leading them around often and keeping them halter broke.”

A typical day for Gingras when she is preparing for conformation begins with taking her lambs for a 20-minute walk around her property. After the walk Gingras takes the lambs into a small pen and leads the lambs one by one by the head, as she would do during a show. “By doing this I got my project lambs and ewes used to the idea of being led by the head and me switching from side to side while leading them, Gingras said. “After a few laps around the pen if I feel like my lamb or

ewe are leading well I will take off their halter and continue to lead them around, stopping occasionally to set up their legs,” Gingras added, “I work with them for another 10-minutes before finishing up.” For Gingras the most challenging aspect to competing in the Summer Synergy competition was finding ways to manage her time. “I had to make sure I had enough time to work on my marketing project while studying for my upcoming diploma exams and preparing for graduation events. “I also had to manage my time during the competition before conformation to make

sure that my seven sheep were ready for show in between registration, trimming and multi judging,” Gringas said. Although it was challenging for Gringas at times, competing in the conformation was a rare opportunity she is excited to have experienced. “This event is a very unique opportunity to be with those in the agriculture community across the province,” she said. With receiving the Calgary Stampede International Youth Livestock Scholarship Gingras is going to attend the University of Lethbridge to become a Veterinarian, and also plans to volunteer

in various clinics and help as many people as she can. “There are so many great memories and experiences that come with this competition. From preparing my ewes to receiving a scholarship, being interviewed and walking across the grandstand with my peers. “There isn’t one part that I can pick out that stand out from the rest. The whole show is a wonderful experience in itself and it is amazing to be rewarded for the amount of hard work that I have put in. “I’m ecstatic to be awarded with a scholarship,” Gringas said.


Provincial News Leela Sharon Aheer UCP MLA Hello Chestermere! I am sitting here looking out at the sky, smelling the beautiful rain. I am truly happy for the moisture, but being a sun seeker, 10 degrees Celsius feels like winter after the beautiful summer we have enjoyed. This week, like usual, I marvel at the Alberta spirit. It comes in so many forms, and one of the most humbling things I experience each week, is what I learn from you, your endeavors to make the province better, your cultural contributions, and most profoundly, how loving and embracing our Alberta families are. This week I experienced a Siksika Nation PowWow along with many Chiefs and councils, both elders and youth, as well as councilors Lorraine Bauer and Denise Peterson of the Town of Strathmore. It was incredible to see all the regalia and the way this nation embraced all of us who were guests. The RCMP wore their red coats proudly and they were honoured for that. First responders and peacekeepers all wore their uniform and they were honoured for that. It was marvelous to be included regardless of my political stripe, and I am

forever grateful for the kindness and affection showered on my family and I. I would like to thank Carlon Bigsnake for inviting me and to the organizers and the volunteers of the PowWow for their incredible hospitality. We will be posting all the pictures on Facebook. I would like to thank the Food Bank who held their volunteer appreciation reception this past Sunday for their incredible work. Thank you to Vicki Osanyintola for doing such a fabulous job along with the incredible volunteers who care so deeply for our little city. My family and I had the pleasure of doing a casino with these incredible folks and I am truly grateful for all they do for our community. I also attended the opening of another little multicultural library sponsored by Love With Humanity. I hope all of you have had a chance to stop by and share or take a book from our own multicultural mini library off of East Chestermere Drive. Thank you to Syed Najam for this wonderful addition to our community. We also attended the Japanese Summer Festival Omatsuri, and finally Pakistan Independence Day on August 14, and India Independence Day on August 15. This year is especially meaningful to the Pakistani community as the Government of Alberta has declared August Pakistani Heritage Month. Please follow us on Facebook to see all the wonderful events we covered this week.

I hope you had a chance to read the August 11 article from Chris Varcoe of the Calgary Herald on the defamation suit surrounding the NDP Government’s meddling in the power market (https://calgaryherald. com/business/energy/ varcoe-deputy-premierand-ndp-governmentnamed-in-1m-defamationsuit-over-power-deals) . Here is a quick recap. Robert Hemstock, a former Enron lawyer, was one of the punching bags used by our government when they destroyed the Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) because the Carbon Tax that they did not campaign on rendered the agreements “more unprofitable” and the agreements were then sent back to the balancing pool. You are paying billions for this, folks. This debacle is being placed on the shoulders of the tax payer/rate payer by the NDP Government. As you may recall, the Government kept stating that they were unaware of the “more unprofitable” clause, ended up basically suing themselves using your tax dollars no less to try and declare that this statement was invalid and putting the blame on Enron, coining the phrase the “Enron Clause”. Every other participant in the power market was aware of this clause which is pretty standard when signing contracts with governments that have the power to change the rules. Have a look at this March 17, 2018 article, again by the Herald’s Chris

I will quote a short part of the article here: “As part of its PR offensive, the government even created its own web page titled, “Understanding the Enron clause,” which was only taken down recently. In legal documents, the province argued that before the PPAs were auctioned off in 2000, McCrank — as head of the energy regulator — and the former Tory government authorized changes to add the words “or more unprofitable” to the clause. McCrank said the change was a routine clarification requested by an independent panel of electricity experts and it actually came through the Energy Department. The energy regulator acted properly and in the public interest, he said in an affidavit. “I did not discuss the corrections and clarifica-

increase competition. “It appears the legislators endeavoured to provide as much certainty as possible to potential PPA buyers and relieve them of nonmarket related risk,” wrote Justice Paul Jeffrey of Court of Queen’s Bench. By painting a routine step as “covert” action, the NDP government tried to shift the blame for its own mistake, McCrank said in an interview this week.

Alberta Rum

Chestermere Food Bank #105, 100 Rainbow Road, Chestermere

403.273.0777 chestermerefoodbank.ca THIS WEEK’S FOOD BANK WISH LIST:

vegetable soup pancake syrup jam shampoo tooth brushes 1 liter juice Chestermere Food Bank ‘open hours’ Monday, Tuesday, Thursday ,Friday 11:00 am – 1:00 pm Wednesday 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Canada is not particularly famous for producing rum, and Alberta even less so. I’m not even sure that we can lay claim to the Screech from Newfoundland, as that famous Newfoundland Rum was popular hundreds of years before Newfoundland became part of Canada. Picture if you will, the weatherbeaten faces of the 19th century fishermen of Newfoundland, delivering shiploads of salt cod to the West Indies. Rather than return with an empty hold, the wily captains would trade their salt cod for equal measures of rum, which was in abundance in the West Indies. Screech has been the official rum of Newfoundland for centuries, although it is now produced and controlled by the provincial government. Until recently, Screech was the only rum that could be called Canadian. Fortunately, the rising tide of craft distilling here in Alberta means we finally have rum that can be called our own. The Secret Barrel Distillery in Calgary was quick to realize that sugar cane does not grow well in our cold Alberta climate, so they import the base sugarcane liquor from Demerara Distillers in Guyana, and then distill, age in oak barrels, and finally bottle the finished rum for sale in the

Alberta market. The world of booze is full of red tape and regulation. Whisky must be aged in oak for a minimum of 3 years. Champagne must be produced in a very specific region of France from very specific grapes. Rum has similar rules, chief of which is that the spirit must be made from sugarcane. The Rig Hand Distillery in the small town of Nisku found a crafty way around those regulations, and we are all the better for it. Rather than importing sugarcane from the Carribean, they decided to make a rum-like spirit from locally grown sugar beets, cheekily referring to the finished product as brum instead of rum. Rig Hand Distillery makes

www.chestermerecitynews.ca

Lakeside Libations a dark brum, a white brum, and a spiced brum, all from locally grown sugar beets, and the taste is pretty much the same as the famous rum brands that are in your liquor cabinet right now. I hosted a little blind tasting session with a few of my regular drinking companions last week, and no one could tell the difference between mainstream rums and our locally produced crafty Alberta brum. My favourite is the Rig Hand Sugar Beet Brum, made in the style of a dark rum. It is slightly sweeter than mainstream dark rums, and contains a richer bouquet of floral notes. If you are the type that drowns your rum in sweet cola mixers, just pick the cheapest generic rum you can find on the shelf of your local bottle shop, as any flavours in your rum will be overpowered by the mixers. However, if you prefer to slowly sip your rum neat, or perhaps over ice, these are the brums for you. I enjoy mine on the rocks, and can taste Alberta in every sip! Fans of fancy cocktails will enjoy the Rig Hand Ghost Brum, made in the style of a white rum. I like to pair this with some muddled mint sprigs from my garden and a bit of sugar and lime juice, for an Albertan version of a Mojito.

Those with a piratical bent can replace their bottles of Captain Morgan with the Rig Hand Bucking Bull Spiced Brum. With spicy notes of cloves and vanilla, this spiced brum holds its own against any of the spiced rums at your friendly neighbourhood booze merchant. With our world-class malting barley and fresh mountain water, it is no wonder that our local craft distilleries are taking the boozing world by storm with vodka, gin, and whisky. The addition of rum (or brum) to our locally produced cornucopia of spirits has made Alberta almost entirely self-sufficient for all our boozing needs. The only thing we are lacking is a local tequila industry, which is challenging since the agave cactus only grows in Mexico. However, the Eau Claire Distillery in Turner Valley makes a tequila-like spirit from the Prickly Pear Cactus that grows right here in Southern Alberta, so consider that our own homegrown tequila substitute! Whatever your spirit of choice, you will likely find it offered by our local Alberta craft distillers, with new ones springing up every month. Taste the Alberta advantage by picking one up today!

The Connections We Crave Socializing your dog Many people in our community crave deeper connections, but we are not always sure where to find them. This craving for real relationships, healthy connections, and trust between ourselves and our neighbours is nearly universal. Years ago I travelled along with a doctor into the heart of the Amazon rainforest. I flew on several airlines, then on a bush plane, then rode on a jeep, then overnight on a big river boat with families, goats, and chickens, and then on a series of dugout canoes to get to a village where the houses were up on stilts. I was a stranger to the people we visited, but they welcomed me in. What I learned from my time in Brazil is that no matter how different my life and culture was from theirs, we both craved connections that extended beyond ourselves. I learned that we all have walls, or barriers to trust, that limit us from connecting. It takes intentional work and practice to build trust and to connect. As strange as it might sound, it felt easier to connect with people in Brazil because I was prepared for it, I trained for it, I went with

the intention to meet and encourage the local people. I am discovering that it is often harder in my own neighbourhood because I do not often live with that kind of intentionality. I do not easily see my need for connections, and I might not think that the people in my community really want to connect with me. Yet real connections are waiting to happen in the places where we live. In our own ways we all long to know and be known. Here are seven kinds of connections that we crave, connections that help us discover new hope and trust between ourselves and our neighbours. • We crave connections that give us new insight and a hopeful point of view. Our neighbours have stories that open our eyes to good things. • We crave connections that help us see that there is more to life. Good neighbours remind us that we are more than a nameless employees or tax payer, we are valuable and worth loving. • We crave connections that encourage us. We all need people who remind us not to give up, but to grow

and create. • We crave connections with those who know how to dialogue about deeper things. Small talk is good, but sometimes we need others to help us reflect on our profound longings and wonderings. • We crave connections that are with us for the long haul. We have friends along the way and friends that go all the way. We crave and need both. • We crave generous connections. Sharing back and forth of our time and resources is a gift, the experience of generosity is deeply enriching. • We crave connections that spill over in humour and fun. We need people who know how to let down their hair and laugh. It is good to crave deeper connections. It was how we were made. Whether you are looking for one good friend, or a larger community, remember that all you crave might be found much closer than you think. May you discover that your city and neighbourhood is a perfect place to nurture the connections we crave, connections that fill us with life and new hope.

Observing what happens in those first 8 weeks is fascinating, if only for the subtleties, or maybe not so subtle ways, that mommy dog is laying down the law to her new puppy. A flick of the nose, a movement of the paw, a sharp grrr: all these actions, and more, are laying the foundation for life in the pack. All of a sudden, the puppy is removed from the only pack it has ever known and thrust into a world of humans and much more. Dogs are amazing at adapting to change but, like any living creature, they need help along the way so they can get used to new and “strange” experiences. From the time the puppy is introduced into your home, try to get it around as many other dogs and people as you can so that it begins to assimilate to it’s new reality. The only caveat to this is don’t take your puppy to off-leash dog parks until it has had appropriate shots, for fear of picking up a virus from the

hundred and one things that are lurking in the park. If you decide to help socialize your puppy by taking it to the mall, bear in mind that only service dogs have full access by law to restaurants, stores, etc so you will need to do your homework ahead of time to know which stores are open to having puppies visit. Most pet stores are amenable as well as stores like Bass Pro. A great way to help with socialization is to have play dates for your puppy. Ask a friend who has a wellmannered dog whether they would like to bring their dog over to your house so the puppy can make a new friend. The beauty of this is that you can have the peace of mind that your dog

is playing in an enclosed, clean space with a nonaggressive dog and you can observe the interaction, making notes of how your puppy is behaving. Part of socializing your puppy is setting boundaries for it’s behaviour. When meeting people for the first time, you can let your puppy greet them but done in a way that is comfortable and acceptable to the people being met. You are teaching manners as well as allowing them to experience new people. Try to have your dog meet as many different types of people as possible: young and old, white, brown and black, wearing hats or hoodies. Over the years I’ve heard many stories of dogs being wary of, for example, men wearing hats or people carrying canes. One of the reasons for this is that they never experienced meeting such people. By exposing your puppy to a variety of people and places, you are setting up your puppy for success. A well balanced, well socialized dog has to be the goal for all dog owners.

Third time’s the charm By Kyla Brewer TV Media As young women navigate the ups and downs of modern life, it helps to have a crew of steadfast girlfriends along for the ride. Issa Dee (Issa Rae, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl”) relies on her close friends in another eight-episode season of the award-winning HBO series “Insecure,” airing Sunday, Aug. 19. When the season opened the week before, Issa was living with her ex, Daniel (Y’Lan Noel, “The First Purge,” 2018), and her precarious financial situation means it would be unwise to move out. Meanwhile, her BFF, Molly (Yvonne Orji, “Night School,” 2018), struggles to keep it together now that she’s finally landed her dream job at a blackowned law firm. Created by Rae and loosely based on her hit web series “Awkward Black Girl,” the series offers viewers a glimpse into the lives of a tight-knit group of black women, who are often underrepresented in prime-time television. This season, the women strive to make the right decisions as they continue to evolve in their 30s. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Rae talked about how the characters grow in season 3.

“This season is about not acting like you’re naive anymore or that you don’t know better,” Rae explained. “So it is about, what does it look like to know better and to do better?” Following their mantra to “know better, do better,” Issa and her pals face the realities of their situations. Now that she’s no longer with Lawrence (“Jay Ellis, “The Game”), Issa is conflicted about her complicated relationship with Daniel, her childhood friend and on-again, off-again lover. Professionally, she isn’t sure about her future with the nonprofit she’s been working for, We Got Y’all. As for Daniel, he struggles to get his music career off the ground. While fans of Ellis, who played Issa’s love interest in the first two seasons, are likely disappointed he isn’t back, this season opens the door to explore a new side of African American culture through the eyes of Daniel. In a June interview with Vibe.com, Rae revealed one of this season’s major themes. “I love black masculinity as it relates to black women,” Rae said. “I think that’s something interesting that we haven’t gotten a chance to explore yet — and specifically toxic male black masculinity as it relates to black women. I’m trying to find a way to explore that and get a rounded

storyline that isn’t preachy.” Issa and her relationship issues may take up a lot of time, but black female friendship is still at the core of “Insecure” in season 3. While Issa tries to figure out what to do about Daniel and her career, Molly deals with her own problems. She may be a successful corporate lawyer, but she hasn’t been able to translate that kind of success into her romantic pursuits. To make matters worse, her hang-ups and insecurities could sabotage her newly secured dream job. A very pregnant Tiffany (Amanda Seales, “My Brother and Me”) deals with the pressures of impending motherhood, but she still finds time to spend with her girlfriends.

However, it’s obvious the dynamics of the group are changing. Natasha Rothwell (“Love, Simon,” 2018) — who’s been in the news recently because of her casting in “Wonder Woman 1984” (due in 2019) — reprises her role as the group’s straight shooter, Kelli. Rothwell also works as a writer on the series, which focuses on diversity both in front of and behind the camera. Rae was determined to assemble an inclusive team to work on “Insecure.” When HBO was looking for a director for the comedy-drama, she recommended Grammy-winning music video director Melina Matsoukas, known for her work on Solange Knowles’ “Losing You” video.

Late Laughs

The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

Reds of seasons past By Ryan Guebert TV Media England’s version of Monday night football kicks off for the first time in the 2018-19 Premier League season with Crystal Palace hosting Liverpool on Monday, Aug. 20. Catch all of the action from Selhurst Park by tuning in to TSN. Liverpool made a number of high-profile transfers during the summer to add to its already deep roster. Naby Keïta and Fabinho arrive at Anfield to help captain Jordan Henderson stabilize the midfield, while Xherdan Shaqiri joins the Reds from newly relegated Stoke City to offer more threatening options on set pieces with

his dangerous left foot. Brazil’s Alisson Becker was brought in to solve Liverpool’s goalkeeping struggles and has been deemed the missing piece of the puzzle for Liverpool. The total fee for the four players cost the club just over £174 million. Liverpool entered the new season with confidence after finishing fourth in the table and runner-up in the Champions League. It had the Premier League’s player of the season in Mohamed Salah, who topped the league with 32 goals and won the golden boot award. Now, with even more weapons at manager Jürgen Klopp’s disposal, the Reds look like true contenders who could

challenge Manchester City’s title. Crystal Palace’s most recent victory over Liverpool came in the 2016-17 season when Christian Benteke scored twice against his former team in his return to Anfield. Benteke struggled significantly last season, scoring only three times in 30 appearances for the Eagles and will need a bounce-back season to maintain his role at Selhurst. Mamadou Sakho is another former Red who will need to play a crucial role if Palace is to repeat the upset from more than a year ago. Sakho spent three seasons with Liverpool before making his move to Palace, where he has become a fan favourite for his sound defending.

The Wall Street Journal says that we are living in a “Golden Age of Tattoos,” which can only mean that in a few years we’ll be living through the “Golden Age of Regret.”

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Thanks to new tariffs from China and Mexico, there’s now 2.5 billion pounds of meat piled up. Good news for McDonald’s AND McDonald’s Playlands. “Kids, go play in the meat pit.”

The Late Late Show With James Corden According to a new report, young Republican staffers in Washington, D.C., are having trouble meeting people on dating apps because they’re being harassed for

their political views. According to some Republican staffers, they are getting harassed so much on dating apps they’re now starting to feel like every woman on every dating app. Following years of complaints, the city of San Francisco has banned tour buses from stopping in front of the home from the TV show “Full House.” They won’t allow it. This is bad news for tourists. It is. Now you’ll have to find something more riveting to do on vacation than sitting in a van very slowly passing by a house.

Jimmy Kimmel Live

The president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, says Trump would agree to an interview with Robert Mueller, as long as there are no questions about obstruction of justice.

I love that. That would be like Bill Cosby agreeing to an interview that’s only about pudding.

Late Night With Seth Meyers

A Montana man was awarded his wife’s weight in beer over the weekend after he carried her on his back through an obstacle course to win the Rocky Mountain Wife Carrying Championship. And the winner of the husband carrying championship: Beyoncé! New York’s MTA gave a presentation this week to attempt to explain the subway system’s recent fall in ridership. They shut the lights off in the auditorium, cranked the heat up to 115, peed on the floor and said, “that’s pretty much it.”

Horoscope

(c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

Week of August 20 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who don’t keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a colleague could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. You’ll soon find the situation shifting in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadn’t considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal conflict while there’s still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some emerging matters could impede the Lion’s progress in completing an important project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career move, and taking an out-of-town job could be a good way to do it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for -- no, demand -- help with this problem. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circumstance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Don’t lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas won’t work. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unsettling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) There’s welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of what’s right can inspire others if you remember not to push too hard to make your case. Moderation works best for you.
