Local Drilling Nearly Quadruples Over Year The Provost area is among other places across Alberta that in a single year experienced a jump upwards in the number of wells drilled. Communications spokesman for the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB), Bob Curran was asked for data on wells drilled here and he wrote that “In the area we searched (just south of Provost to just north of Chauvin, and from Hughenden to the Saskatchewan border), there were 91 wells drilled in 2010, compared to 23 in 2009.” That’s an increase of 395 percent.

Comment Buckets of rain coming down making some of the weekend events a bit on the wet side but the parade, Kinsmen mud races and other events still took place. *** Gardeners meanwhile smiling. *** Those big monster trucks on display over at Side Track Liquor so people could get a close-up view of them while Candy and staff marked anniversary celebrations. *** Tractor and truck show held at the museum on the weekend but rain didn’t help the nice event. *** Town and M.D. hosting an annual barbecue on Friday night just south of the midway, near the hall. Fireworks went off as planned Friday night, being launched from Paulgaard Estates on the south east corner of the town. *** And the Chamber of Commerce coming up with over $1400 at a pancake breakfast which will be used to help build a parking lot just west of

Crescent Point Place and north of the Agriplex. *** Someone telling us that the Horizon Motel has been under new ownership for some time now. *** Rides at the midway pretty popular with youngsters—and the parents. *** Good goin’ to the Provost Squirts and the PeeWee C girls’ ball teams who now advance to provincial finals next month. Hit a homer! *** Power going out suddenly on Monday afternoon for an hour or so.

Productive Land

From P. 1 The top operators in this area in 2010 were Talisman Energy (41 wells), Black Shire Energy (10), Rife Resources (nine), and Enerplus (seven). The ERCB Calgary office records also show that across the province over 2,300 successful oil wells were drilled in 2010, more than double the numbers drilled in 2009. Crude oil remaining reserves established increased 3.7 per cent, the first increase since 2005. The ERCB’s report called Alberta's Reserves 2010 and Supply/Demand Outlook 2011-2020 also stated that in 2010, Alberta’s crude oil production totaled 73.0 thousand cubic metres (m3) (459 thousand barrels) of oil per day with a yearly total of 26.6 million m3 (168 million barrels). This is a 0.4 per cent reduction from 2009. Also in 2010, Alberta produced 256.3 thousand m3 (1.6 million barrels) per day of raw crude bitumen from the oil sands. The 2010 yearly total of 93.5 million m3 (589 million barrels) produced from the oil sands represents an 8 per cent increase over Alberta’s 2009 oil sands production. The ERCB meanwhile is forecasting that Alberta’s annual raw crude bitumen production will total 549.6 thousand m3 (3.5 million barrels) per day for a total of 201

million m3 (1.3 billion barrels) per year by 2020. Since 1967 Alberta has produced 1.2 billion m3 (7.5 billion barrels) of raw crude bitumen from the oil sands and crude oil production has produced 2.6 billion m3 (16 billion barrels) of

crude oil since the began, industry according to the report. • Other Report Highlights: Alberta’s total remaining established crude bitumen and crude oil reserves totaled 27.1 billion m3 (170.8 billion

coalbed methane gas reserves stood at 67.6 billion m3 (2.4 trillion cubic feet). Alberta’s remaining established coal reserves are estimated at 33 billion tonnes (37 billion tons). The annual ERCB report is a source of information on the state of reserves and the supply and demand outlook for Alberta’s energy resources including crude bitumen, crude oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids, coal, and sulphur.

Remaining established oil reserves crude increased nearly 4.0 per cent, the first increase since 2005, as the cumulative result of reserves additions from 2010 drilling, reserve revisions, and production. Remaining established marketable conventional gas reserves stood at 1025.1 billion m3 (36.4 trillion cubic feet). Remaining established

Workers (left) near a Penn West Cadogan oil battery are on the job as more interest in conventional oil is taking place, according to both the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers who are predicting a busy Alberta oilpatch in 2011. A new forecast (see PN June 8) confirms the shift to oil well completions, away from natural gas drilling. Approximately 60 percent of the wells being completed are directed at oil, and those wells are increasingly horizontal. Many are seeing the application of multi-stage fracking technology. The application of this technology was most prevalent in the Bakken play in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but is now widely used in the Cardium and Viking areas of Alberta. This picture was taken on June 15 south east of Cadogan as farming operations also took place nearby.

Provost Taekwondo Club Re-cap During 2010-2011 taekwondo fighters represented the club at tournaments in Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Airdrie and our home tournament. Many Provost students won divisions in big city tournaments. Chelci Coffey fought in several black belt tournaments from January on, and showed a lot of promise and toughness, fighting older and more experienced competitors. She won several black belt fights, with the highlight being the beating of the bronze medallist at Junior National competitions during a tournament in Calgary. Coffey is ready to take the next step to a national level. Nathan McCrea also received his black belt in December, but was out of the tournament season due to a severe skiing injury. In April, Jen Fischer and Christina Tarcu earned their black belts. Fischer also broke a brick with a palm strike

Stricter Guidelines Stricter guidelines for Alberta companies to keep their certificate of recognition (COR) will be put in place. Employers that are not COR holders do not receive annual partnerships in injury reduction (PIR) rebates from the Workers’ Compensation Board - (WCB) and cannot bid on certain projects. “Losing a COR is bad for business,” said Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister of Employment and Immigration. “However, Albertans have the right to work in safe and healthy

" " " " "

THE PROVOST NEWS, PROVOST, ALBERTA conditions. We’re putting employers on notice: after July 1, we’ll be launching reviews as soon after a workplace incident as possible.” Changes to the COR program include an employer review process if there is a fatality, serious injury or incident; if two or more stop work orders are issued within a 12 month period; or if ongoing OHS officer activity indicates possible health and safety issues. An employer would not be eligible for PIR rebates when its COR is under review.

Shell Spends Over $1 Billion With Aboriginal Contractors CALGARY.—(CNW) Shell, as operator of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) has announced that over six years the project has spent over $1 billion with Aboriginal contractors. This milestone has been reached through work with over 70 Aboriginal businesses, providing a range of goods and services to support the Athabasca Oil Sands Project. Since 2005 the number of contracts with Aboriginal businesses has grown significantly. Local businesses provide a broad range of services and products including facilities management, technical expertise, bussing, camps and catering and waste management. "Working with Shell and the Athabasca Oil Sands Project over a number of years has enabled the Fort McKay Group of Companies, joint ventures and entrepreneurs to grow, and has brought significant opportunity to develop skills, establish

businesses and further our community" said Phil Peddie, CEO of the Ft. McKay First Nation. Joining the celebrations was Alberta's Minister of Aboriginal Relations Len Webber. "I congratulate Shell and the companies involved in reaching this important $1 billion dollar milestone. Helping provide economic development opportunities for Aboriginal companies is crucial for the region and success of Alberta." The announcement was made as part of Shell's weeklong celebrations to support Aboriginal Awareness. Shell's Aboriginal Awareness Week is organised by Shell's Aboriginal Employee network (ABNET), the only such aboriginal employee network in the industry. Shell Canada Energy is 60 percent owner and operator of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) along with Chevron Canada Limited (20 percent) and Marathon Oil Corporation (20 percent). The AOSP includes the Muskeg River Mine, Jackpine Mine and Scotford Upgrader.

Oil, Gas Growth to Climb—International Report ST PETERSBURG.—Annual growth in oil demand could average 1.2 million barrels per day (mb/d) between now and 2016, while natural gas demand could grow by around 500 billion cubic meters – around 2.5 times Russia’s current gas exports – during the same time, according to the International Energy Agency’s report: Medium-Term Oil and Gas Markets 2011. The report, launched June 16 at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, seeks to make sense of the increased divergence in oil and gas markets by providing a comprehensive outlook for fundamentals through 2016. “This report shows that oil’s twilight as an industrial fuel continues, and it becomes ever more concentrated in the transport and petrochemical sectors,” said International Energy Agency executive director Nobuo

Tanaka. “Gas on the other hand continues to increase in power generation as well as industry and space heating. In terms of market structure and pricing, oil is a genuinely global commodity, while gas markets, although globalising, remain bound by some key regional constraints, not least in terms of transportation.” For oil, the projections are based on prevailing futures prices, which form an assumption as opposed to a price forecast. The crude price assumption used in the outlook averages $103 per barrel, or around $20 more than in last year’s MTOGM. Based on this assumption, the report projects the following outcomes in oil markets: Growth in oil supply capacity through 2016 averages 1.1 mb/d annually, as higher prices unlock new supplies. Iraq, UAE and Angola lead growth prospects from OPEC,

while Brazil, Canada, Kazakhstan and Columbia drive non-OPEC increases. Conventional crude oil accounts for less than 40 percent of the increase, while natural gas liquids, biofuels and unconventional oil from onshore the United States account for the lion’s share of new supplies; While spurring investment in exploration and development, higher oil prices threaten to weaken economic growth and curb demand. Accordingly, the report presents both a base case scenario in which demand reaches 95.3 mb/d in 2016 and a low-GDP variant in which demand is 2.4 mb/d lower by 2016; In both demand scenarios, China, Asia and the Middle East together generate around 95 percent of net growth, with buoyant gas oil/diesel growth and major increases expected from the transport and petrochemical sectors. Persistent end-user subsidies and buoyant economic

growth allow non-OECD demand growth to stay robust, despite high international crude prices. The report makes the following projections for the gas market: As gas consumption grows by 2.4 percent per year between now and 2016, gas continues to increase its share of the global energy mix. NonOECD markets are not only the main driver behind this demand growth but also contribute to 90 percent of additional supplies; Global trade in gas expands rapidly as more countries become gas importers. Natural gas joins oil, iron ore and many others in the club of commodities in which China is the increasingly dominant source of demand. Around one third of global demand growth comes from China. China emerges as one of the biggest importers of pipeline gas as well as LNG, while rapidly increasing its domestic production at the same time.

Sask. June Land Sale Yields $41 Million REGINA.—The June sale of petroleum and natural gas rights brought in $40.9 million in revenue, making it the third best on record for a June sale. Land sale revenue for the 2011 now stands at $193 million. "This sale marks a record, 11 consecutive land sales that have surpassed the $30 million mark," Energy and Resources Minister Bill Boyd said. "This sustained interest from industry is very positive. It tells us industry sees a stable, long-term future in Saskatchewan's oil patch. It's also a vote of confidence in the province's overall business climate.

"It's always exciting to watch the action when prime Bakken and Shaunavon parcels are posted, and this sale was no exception. I was also pleased to see that all corners of the oil patch continue to contribute to the sale, from St. Walburg in the north to Consul in the southwest to Storthoaks in the southeast and points in between." June's sale included eight petroleum and natural gas exploration licences that sold for $3.5 million and 260 lease parcels that attracted $37.4 million in bonus bids. The Weyburn-Estevan area received the most bids with sales of $21.5 million. The Lloydminster area was next at $7.9 million, followed by the Kindersley-Kerrobert area at $6.1 million and the Swift Current area at $5.4 million. The highest price for a single parcel was $3.7 million. Prairie Land & Investment Services Ltd. acquired this 62.28-hectare lease parcel near Stoughton. This parcel

9

also had the highest price on a per-hectare basis of $60,302.

Alberta Sets Single Day Land Sale Record

EDMONTON.—June 1’s petroleum and natural gas land sale netted over $841 million and is the highest ever total from a land sale in the history of Alberta. This nearly doubles the previous high of $474 million set in December 2005. The sale also set a record for average price hectare of $3,110.85, surpassing the previous high of $2,185.03 set in July 2010. There were 390 parcels available for the sale. The top earner was a licence located north east of Rocky Mountain House which

sold for over $106.5 million with an average price per hectare of $13,529.70. This parcel also bought in the highest ever bonus for a petroleum and natural gas parcel. The previous high was a petroleum and natural gas parcel sold on March 23, 2011 for over $96.5 million. Six of the top 10 all-time parcel sales were set today. “The most interesting result in this land sale is the focus on conventional oil in the Cardium formation,” said Energy Minister Ron Liepert. “This is the result of our previous changes to the royalty structure which encourages the use and deployment of new technologies in accessing the resource.” The record sale comes just months after the province set new records for calendar year ($2.39 billion) and fiscal year ($2.56 billion) sales as well as average price per hectare ($2,185.03).

Studio 9-41 Art Club Hosts Regional Show On June 4 Oyen’s mayor Paul Christianson welcomed guests to the Alberta Community Art Clubs Association southern zone show. Oyen’s art club also celebrated their 35th year in operation. In January of 1976 an art club was formed and named the Oyen & District Art Club. The first president was Grace McFadyen, with Myrtle Varney as secretary-treasurer. In 1985 the name was changed to Studio 9-41 Art Club. The club started meeting on a regular bi-monthly basis in the Pioneer Hut at the Oyen museum in 1982, moving over to the Seniors’ Recreation Center in 1984. The visual art was displayed throughout the Oyen Seniors’ Recreation Center for the two-day event. —OYEN ECHO

Consort Community Health Centre Re-opens The Consort Community Health Centre re-opened on June 8 following the completion of significant facility upgrades. The 18year-old facility was closed for almost a year as upgrades were made to mechanical systems, drainage systems and flooring. The changes are expected to enhance both the patient experience, as well as patient and staff safety. Programs and services that were temporarily located at the Consort Hospital during renovations are now back in the community health centre, including public health, mental health, home care, Alberta Aids to Daily Living, speech language pathology and rehabilitation. —THE CONSORT ENTERPRISE

Reports of Child Abduction ‘Unfounded’ Say RCMP Reports of a child abduction taking place in Provost are unfounded, say RCMP. And reports of a child abduction allegedly also taking place earlier in nearby Macklin, Sask. are also without basis. Const. Corey Hunt told The Provost News in a telephone interview on Thursday afternoon, June 9 that a report was made to police about an incident alleged to have taken place at a school playground at 5:30 p.m. on June 8. The incident was investigated and there were “no facts to substantiate” the incident. No man nor other person was found to be involved with an abduction nor found to be at the playground. The News had been contacted over the allegations from the public with one person asking for a story about “. . . reports about attempted abduction of a girl in Macklin and now as of yesterday here in Provost.” —THE PROVOST NEWS

10 minutes to talk with the patient adding that it’s “more of a relaxation thing.” When her course is finalized she will be called a certified hypnotherapist. The Provost dentist has also finished extra courses in aesthetics dentistry in May and June in Las Vegas on weekends where she put in approximately 75 hours of study. That knowledge can be used to “remake a smile” for those that may have deformed or

Iova has been taking the course which she says will help not only the patient but also herself and her staff by reducing some anxiety. The dental profession is a stressful one, she points out and notes the procedure is a kind of relaxation and collaboration with positive suggestions put forward such as “you will feel a pleasant experience.” The patient stays wide awake and does not enter a trance. She says the technique has also been used in some surgeries around the world and thinks it could help 10 to 25 percent of dental patients who are anxious.

Although Iova has done work in that before she recently worked on a patient (one of her own staff) that is having a wedding this summer and worked on 10 of the woman’s teeth. Teeth were not moved in the mouth because a faster fix was asked for. Orthodontics would have moved and re-aligned the teeth. In addition the Provost dentist last year took courses on sleep studies including snoring and sleep apnea which might be in part related to a malformation of the jaw which could position the tongue to cause a breathing obstruction when someone is asleep.

The KP Kindergarten class has shown fantastic progress as beginning readers throughout this school year. The students completed their reading program by adding in their final selection to their poem books and completing the last take home story of the year, “Bedtime on the Farm”. Listening to factual books about farm animals has continued to teach the class some amazing animal facts while providing opportunities to work on comprehension skills. Measuring animals with cubes was a great handson way to review number concepts. During this past week, the students had an opportunity to use life jackets and practice their swimming skills and dives in the deep end. This week the Grade 1W class was thrilled to be able to see butterflies emerge from their chrysalides. They also have nine cocoons that they hope to see the moths emerge from. Getting ready for Father’s Day provided an opportunity for creativity and writing. It is hoped that all dads enjoyed their day. The Grade 2 students continue to explore small crawling and flying insects. They are now doing various experiments to find out more about the earthworm's habits. The students enjoyed their last visit to the Hillcrest Lodge for the year. They did a fabulous job performing “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, followed by an interview about life when the seniors were young. Parents were also invited in to enjoy the play performance. Well done, class. Grade 3 CR students have loved their time in the pool improving their strokes and water safety knowledge. They were glad to be done with PATs as their focus is disappearing for the year! Making books to cheer up Mrs. Clarke-Rennie when she was recovering

The Grade 6B students are glad that provincial achievement testing is complete. They are looking forward to their field trip to Moose Jaw where they will visit the tunnels and learn about Al Capone. The students have begun an active citizenship project in social studies. They brainstormed things they would like to change in the community and school and then voted on which one would make the greatest impact. They all decided that they wanted to decrease littering in the community. The class worked together to develop a plan. They are going to donate garbage cans to the community so people have some place to put their garbage, instead of on the street. The school wide plasma car races have come to an end. The grand winners of them all was the team Line Riders! They consisted of four Grade 5 students; David Baier, Kaden Nelson, Darian Brouwer, and Trey Latimer.

SEE YOUR DENTIST BEFORE STARTING CANCER TREATMENTS Before a cancer patient begins chemotherapy or radiation treatment, a visit to the dentist may be in order. Chemotherapy and radiation treatment to the head and neck reduces the production of saliva, as well as weakening the immune system. Because of this, problems already present in the mouth can be aggravated. If the problem becomes severe enough, cancer therapy may have to be interrupted until the dental problem is fixed. Ideally, a cancer patient would have dental treatment completed two to four weeks prior to cancer treatment, but it can be done closer to the date if immediate cancer treatment is necessary. The patient would receive a complete dental cleaning and examination. Any obvious decay, infected gums and sores would be treated immediately. X-rays would also be taken to look for any not-so-obvious problems that can be treated or prevented. Your dentist will also assist in care during cancer treatment and may recommend daily fluoride at-home treatments. If you have concerns about dental care for cancer patients, be sure to ask your dentist. -12-06/22/1

Counselling: What’s it all About? The Provost and District Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) provides a counselling program that is housed in the Provost Provincial Building with services offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays and alternate Fridays. No referral is necessary. This confidential program is funded by your tax dollars and there are no additional charges. People use counseling for a variety of reasons. They may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict, or improving relationships with others. The counsellor’s role is to facilitate the client’s work in ways that respect the client’s values, personal resources and capacity for self-determination. If you have never been in counselling before, you may be wondering what to expect. The purpose of counselling is to enable you to resolve your issues so that you can live more satisfyingly and resourcefully. It is more disciplined and confidential than friendship; all counsellors are required to meet a Code of Ethics and Conduct which they must follow. And, although friends know and perhaps understand you better, they will sometimes have a bias or preference for you. Counsellors do not have a vested interest in your choices and can facilitate a neutral discussion. Counselling is a place where you will be encouraged and empowered to be the best person you can be. To make an appointment you can call 780-753-2542. FC-10-06/22/1

Buck Gregory Frank Buckley (Buck) Gregory died May 13, 2011 after an 11-year struggle with prostate cancer. Born October 18, 1953 to Laura and Fred Gregory, Buck died the way he lived: surrounded by people who loved him. Born and raised in Provost, Alta., Buck married Teresa McRae in 1956. The legacy he shared with Teresa includes five children, 17 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Eventually known as “Mr. Provost,” Buck started working at the age of 12. By the time he was 20, he was running his own businesses. Buck owned and operated Gregory’s Funeral Homes Ltd. for more than 50 years. His other business endeavours included a 20-year commitment to Gregory’s Ambulance Service. His sons still operate Provost Insurance Agencies (Provost), E. Anderson Agencies (Hughenden) and Century 21 Provost Realty Ltd. Buck will be forever missed by his wife Teresa and their children: Randy (Carol), Dale (Annette) and Gail, all of Provost, and Joy (Gary Varty) and Kari (Rick Mazurkewich) of Calgary. They also leave to mourn grandchildren Lyndsay (Klaas Hendricks),

Randi Lynn (Dylan Meredith) and Nathan Gregory; Nicole (Wes Ganser), Travis (Amy) and Mitchell (Courtney) Gregory; Mark, Michelle (Blake Moncrieff) and Erin Hall; Joshua, Christianne, Alex and Maggie Varty; and Terese, Perri, Quinn and Tate Mazurkewich; and great-grandchildren: Kennedy, Carter, Mason and Colson Ganser; Brecken and Brielle Gregory; and Asher and Tenley Gregory. Always active in the community he was proud to call home, Buck was a charter and life member of the Provost Kinsmen Club. He also served on town council, as a school trustee, on parish council and the hospital board and received n u m e r ous awards f o r h i s p r o f e s sional and volunteer work. Buck was predeceased by his parents and two sisters, Gladys (Gordon Paulgaard/Joe Rehman) and Eva Sedgwick. In addition to his immediate family, he leaves to mourn his brother Alvin (Velma), sisters Darlene (Frank Manning) and Carol (James Fossen), and brother-in-law Al Sedgwick; one aunt, Ruby and Bill Wood, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Card of Thanks

T

he Gregory family thanks all of the people whose prayers and acts of kindness helped all of us during the 11 years since Buck was diagnosed with prostate cancer. We are especially appreciative of the care, compassion and expertise of Dr. Stephan Malan and Dr. Deon Erasmus, as well as the late Dr. John Hnatuik. The skill and kindness exhibited by all of the staff at Provost Health Care Centre, from medical personnel to housekeeping, was a wonder to behold and we know that we are blessed to be among such good people. Our family is grateful for our relationship with the people of St. Mary’s Parish and give

special thanks to Father Joselito, who presided at the funeral and offered strong spiritual support to Buck in recent years. We also thank the St. Mary’s Folk Choir, acolyte Denis Benoit, altar servers Karen Wagner, Will Bouma and MacKenzie Bouma, and the C a t h o l i c Women’s League, for their contributions to a beautiful service. We thank Jeremy and Bailey Allen and their staff at Gregory’s Funeral Home and we express our sincere gratitude to all of those who sent cards, food and flowers, and to those who donated money in Buck’s name to the Provost Cemeter y Fund, the Provost Health Foundation (palliative care), or other charities.

God bless you all! Teresa Gregory and family -40-06/22/1

Comment ————————————————————————————

George Bernard Ph. 780-857-2673

The trouble with writing these ‘stories’ of mine ahead of time, I sometimes guess wrong about some items or events that haven’t happened or will happen but I don’t think you really notice whenever I miss the boat. I try not to write about the same subjects or content that Lucie writes about and on a few occasions she has ‘stolen’ my thunder so I just don’t talk about it. We talk to each other sometimes but never what we are going to write about. Back in early May her column described ‘warm’ milk. True. Milk chutes, also true but we didn’t have one in our house in Calgary. And in the ’40s, milk was delivered by a horse drawn wagon. I read her column four times to make sure something wasn’t there. Do you remember when margarine came on the market? It was white and the package contained yellow food coloring so the margarine could be colored to look like you know what. About a month ago someone asked me how come I write about the past so often. My answer was that I have more years behind me than I have years ahead of me. Besides the resident ‘historians’ like to have their stories told. Where else do you think I get some of my ideas. It is often said “plagerism is the highest form of flattery.” This is not my line . . . ‘Part of where I’m going is knowing where I’m coming from.’ This was the statement or message for the grads at a recent graduation. That line pretty much sums it up for people of all ages. I like to pick on large corporations. I am very selective of which ones I pick on. I have to have had first-hand experience or I can quote from a reliable source. I

don’t get into politics because all elected politicians think they are little ‘gods’ so I don’t talk about religions either. I do have question(s) for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). Why are the railroad tracks so crooked? Is it because the CPR got the section they were going through plus the sections on both sides of that section? Was this land grant forever or just for as long as there were railroad tracks? If the CPR takes out the track, should it have to give the land back. This ‘theft’ of land has a close parallel in 2010-11 with the stripping of property owner’s rights in favor of the large electrical corporations who are primarily concerned with servicing ‘big oil’ at the expense of the small user. When election time comes around, why do our minds go ‘blank’ ? So when this new power transmission line is built and property owners are raped on an individual basis of their property rights, how is

the CPR going to be treated when their granted/seized land is crossed? In closing, I would like to pass on a little story as told to me by Mindy at the Red Lion many years ago. Mindy called me always “Norm” (from Cheers). She still calls me “Norm” at the ATB. Anyways, the Theory” “Buffalo according to Mindy . . . “Well, ya see, Norm, it’s like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the

herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the herd keeps improving. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer NEW

+

eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain faster and more efficient. That’s why you

always feel smarter after a few beers.” . . . time for a beer! ———————

IN MEMORIAM IN MEMORIAM ——— In loving memory of Kaye Nish who passed away June 22, 2010. God saw you getting tired, And the cure was not to be, He wrapped you in His loving arms, And whispered “Come with Me.” You suffered much in silence, Your spirit did not bend. You faced your pain with courage, Until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us, Your fight was all in vain, God took you to His loving home, And freed you from all pain. You didn’t deserve what you went through, And so he gave you rest, Never does a day go by We do not think of you A golden heart stopped beating Two working hands at rest. When the days are sad and lonely And everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper, ‘Cheer up and carry on’. Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say, ‘Don’t cry, I’m only sleeping And we’ll meet again someday. Sadly missed, Patti, Vanessa, Deon and Cindy, Brynn, Deegan Dan, Roy and Connie and families —22Jn1p ___________________________

Cash for Parking Lot

President of the Provost Agricultural Society, Richard Larson (centre) accepts $1,457.90 from Provost and District Chamber of Commerce representatives Anne Fraser (left) and Kathy Meier. The money was raised from a pancake breakfast held at Crescent Point Place before the parade on Saturday, June 18. Larson says plans are being made to gravel the parking lot near the new arena, likely this summer and that so far an estimated $50,000 has been raised. Paving could follow when more money is raised. ©PROVOST NEWS PHOTO. experiment was conducted. A bottle cork, weighing less than four grams, was suspended by an almost invisible thread alongside a heavy steel bar, itself hung vertically from a beam

by a slender metal chain. The cork, set in motion, began to swing gently against the steel bar. For a long time there was nothing to be seen but its rhythmic, noiseless swaying back

In

the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told the gathered multitude that they were to be the salt of the earth. His words were meant for us, too. Salt preserves food from decay and rot; as Christ's followers we are called to keep our society from decaying. Salt promotes thirst; we are to help others find a thirst for Jesus. Salt permeates food; we are to permeate society with the love of Jesus and the moral values necessary for a good society. This story helps to illustrates that last point. In a gun factory in the United States, an unusual

and forth, back and forth, while the bar remained motionless. More minutes went by...two...five...10...a half hour. Then suddenly under the relentless barrage, and so nearly imperceptibly as to seem almost an illusion, the steel bar was seen to tremble. A few moments later it shuddered as if seized with a nervous tremor, hung quietly again, then shuddered again. There was no deviation in the motion of the cork. Steadily, without haste, it continued its noiseless assault. And now the movements of the great steel bar became less tremulous as it settled into the beginning of an orderly pattern of motion, gradually picking up the rhythm of the swinging cork. In another half hour the cork, its work finished, had been cut down and the heavy bar was swinging back and forth as steadily and as rhythmically as a pendulum. There is a moral here, isn't there? When we encounter seemingly immovable objects, we feel that we can do nothing about them. How can I, singlehanded make even the slightest impact, we wonder. We each are only one person. So we do nothing. But if an almost weightless cork can, by its gentle persistent hammering, set a heavy bar of steel in motion, why can't we, with nothing more than a friendly good morning day after day, convince our standoffish neighbour to become a friend? Or why can't our quiet yet constant reiteration of a truth finally make an impression on the most deeply rooted prejudice? And in a broader sense, can't we, by continually speaking against an evil or a lack in our communities, eventually influence other people so that the minority

of one will become a majority large enough to correct that evil or lack? If a little cork can do it--

so can we. This is what Jesus meant when he said we are to be the salt of the earth.

‘No Respect’ People who are using Communities in Bloom flowerpots for their own use such as planting garage sale signs in them “have no respect for all the work that we have done” says spokesman Betty Varty—who yanked this sign (above) up from another barrel and brought it downtown to be

SWIMMING LESSONS • Tadpoles • Red Cross Swimkids - Levels 1-10 • Royal Life - Rookie/Ranger/Star • Br. Star/Br. Medallion/Br. Cross

photographed. She adds that school students who helped out planting flowers this year won’t be happy to see the containers used for advertising purposes. Varty saw three or four flowerpots being used in this fashion without permission and another sign was placed between flowerpots, taking away from the decoration. This is not the first year flowerpots have been highjacked by others but now it’s getting worse say the people who take the time to put them out. Some new pots now in use this year (top, right) have some limited plumbing for a water reservoir in them below the dirt which might get damaged if people continue to pound wooden stakes in the barrels to hold up signs. Varty says that “We will phone the town in the future and have them deal with it (using pots for signs) and maybe they will call the RCMP.” ©PROVOST NEWS PHOTOS.
