New space lets parents socialize while children play by Aleisha Bosch Sylvan Lake News

Delicious

- Kindergarten students from C. P. Blakely School were clearly fascinated when they visited Panago Pizza last Thursday and Friday mornings. Gail Reynolds showed them all about how to make pizzas. She explained the sauce is put on so it doesn’t touch the outside crust otherwise it would burn. The students were on field trips to learn about their community. They also met with Mayor Susan Samson. STEVE DILLS

Parents and preschoolaged children in Benalto have a new option for activities. Red Deer County’s CHIPS (Children’s Indoor Play Space) program held its first session last Wednesday in the Benalto Baptist Church gym. Running every Wednesday morning from 9:30-11:30, the program aims to provide children newborn to 4 years old the opportunity to play together, in addition to allowing parents to socialize. The program was spearheaded by Pam Hetu, the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) district community worker for west Red Deer County. “There isn’t a lot of

programs for children 0-4 in age. It’s great for the community because it will help area parents get out and meet other parents,” said Hetu. She added that it also allows similarly aged children to meet each other. “It’s great to have this so parents can meet other parents.” A few parents had requested the program due to the lack of facilities for young children in Benalto, said Hetu. “This is just one of the programs that I’m going to facilitate until it’s sustainable,” said Hetu, who has organized a similar program in her home community of Spruce View. While still in its infancy, the Spruce View program has about six families that attend, said Hetu. So far, there have been positive reactions to the pro-

gram, with parents excited to attend in coming weeks. Hetu expects similar attendance numbers in Benalto as more people learn about the program. “You just have to give it time,” she said. CHIPS is run by volunteers. Hetu approached Patti Sahlin, who runs the only licensed day home in Benalto, to volunteer for the program. “Everybody has told me there’s a great need, there’s nothing and they were very happy when I agreed and said I would do this,” said Sahlin. “If we didn’t have this, there’s nothing here.” Sahlin cares for six children at her day home, ranging in age from five months to five years. She said some of the children’s parents don’t often have the opportunity to meet other people. “It brings out moms that don’t normally get out,” said Sahlin. “Basically we just let the parents get to know each other and the children can play.” The CHIPS program will run from October until May. All attending families pay $4 per family per visit, which funds the facility rental.

Plans for Cobb’s renovation recommended for approval by Steve Dills Sylvan Lake News

Plans for renovations to the former Cobb’s grocery location on 50th Street received a favourable review by the town’s Municipal Planning

Commission members Monday night. They passed a recommendation that council approve the development application. RiverCity Developments submitted the application to create space for a restaurant and patio

and six suites on the main floor and add a second storey within the existing building which would have five suites. The application estimated the $960,000 project would be completed by February.

To be known as Cobb’s Central Block, the building is proposed to have a Colonial Revival Style with symmetrical façade featuring both siding and brick on the exterior, multipaned windows which are vertically aligned and have har-

Salesmanship - A group of smiling Sylvan Lake Brownies and Girl Guides were selling delicious mint cookies at No Frills Saturday morning. The group included included Emily Lumbis, River Hart, Dawson Pollitt, Brooklynn Pollitt, Ava Cooney, Tawnie Owl and Jennifer McLean. Other girls were selling cookies at Sobey’s, Walmart, Canadian Tire and Mac’s. If you missed the chance to buy cookies, they are still available by calling Bev Witham at 403-887-4717 or Judy Scanland at 403-887-4371.

monious proportions and columns along the gallery overhang. There are two ‘dormer style’ façades and a centre-entry floor plan for the majority of the interior. It’s proposed that 15,582 square feet will be used for retail and restaurant, primarily on the main floor and 9,878 square feet will be used for office and personal services, primarily on the second floor. An outdoor patio is linked to the restaurant. A wall mural will replace the painting on the north side “which will enrich the pedestrian experience and create a strong sense of place,” said the proposal submitted by Ken Wessel. “This is particularly important as part of the revitalization in the downtown. There is good visibility for the piece from other buildings and from the street.” Colleen Jensen, representing RiverCity at the meeting, told commission members the mural would

be different than what is there now and created on a material that could be affixed to the wall rather than painted directly on it. She also commented on the requirement that the developer be required to submit “a landscaping plan for the west boundary of the property that provides adequate street screening in the form of a landscape island or other means satisfactory to the Development Officer as a means to buffer the parking area from the public roadway”. “Doing screening may be difficult,” said Jensen. “It will be a challenge to put some sort of landscap-

ing in and still maintain parking.” Existing parking (35 stalls in the parking lot and four stalls in the alley) satisfies the requirements of the town’s Pattern Book, according to a report from Development Officer Patty Urban. Council is required to make the final decision on the project since it falls within the Waterfront Direct Control District. That’s why the planning commission’s decision is only to recommend that council approve the project. The application will be on council’s agenda at Monday night’s meeting.

Gardiner finds success in rodeo announcer’s box by Aleisha Bosch Sylvan Lake News

What began as a way of staying connected to rodeo has turned into a successful career for Sylvan Lake resident Brett Gardiner. Gardiner was named the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association’s (CPRA) Announcer of the Year for 2012, it was announced last week. He’ll receive the award at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton next month. He also won the honour in 2011. “I was kind of excited, that’s kind of the best in this business, especially because I’m in a class with my idols,”

said Gardiner, adding that it was an honour to have his name beside theirs. It’s been nine years since Gardiner first picked up a microphone as a volunteer announcer at a high school rodeo. “The first couple of years you never admit,” he said. He added that most announcers get their start after being unsuccessful in the arena. Gardiner began competing in rodeos while still in high school. After an injury, he figured he wasn’t cut out for the sport, but still wanted to stay involved. He worked volunteer stints announcing at a high school and a

little britches rodeo. He felt nervous, didn’t know what to say, and worried he was awful. “At the time it was pretty nerve-wracking,” said Gardiner. Following his debut, Gardiner began receiving more invitations to announce, and started getting paid for his work. “It was really by accident that the career began,” he said. Gardiner is a big fan of rodeo, and likes the sport’s camaraderie and family aspects. “If you like rodeo you love rodeo,” he said.

their town’s rodeo and at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton. His grandparents also took him to chuckwagon races at the Calgary Stampede. “I always liked it from day one, it was entertaining,” said Gardiner. “I used to see them as just superstars … just putting them up on that pedestal.” Gardiner said he was lucky to be successful as an announcer early on, allowing him to pursue it. The best announcers, said Gardiner, can read the crowd and deliver what they want. Younger crowds prefer a “rock and roll” atmosphere, compared with older crowds who are more appreciative of

western heritage. “It comes down to judging your audiences,” said Gardiner. He added that he doesn’t usually receive feedback on his work, but tries to do his best. He likes to include personal information about some of the cowboys while announcing. Gardiner’s announcing duties run most of the year. He has worked at rodeos from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Abbotsford, British Columbia, including those in Wainwright, Innisfail, and Eckville. He is the youngest announcer to receive his professional card, which he has held since 2006. When not announcing, Gardiner works at École H. J. Cody School in Sylvan Lake, where

Crime Watch sign stolen, police seeking suspects Farm Supply on Highway 766 south of Eckville. Although the value of the theft is not significant, the act of stealing this particular sign, especially keeping in mind the purpose behind this sign in the first place, is a little disturbing to the police. If you have information on the sign’s current whereabouts or the person(s) responsible for this theft, please call

Through this experience, Amanda was inspired to found the Global Enrichment Foundation which dedicates resources to improving the struggles of the Somalia people with specific focus on empowering Somali women and all women across the globe. Unfortunately, Amanda is not able to be here today — but her step father Perry Neitz is here to accept the award on her behalf. Mary Elizabeth Reaume is tonight’s oldest recipient at 102. At 17 she began teaching students from Grades 1-8 in a one room school, as well as English to their immigrant par-

She was always a leader in fundraising, from her church to the Fish and Game Association and the Lion’s Club. She started the ‘It’s New to You’ second hand store to provide affordable clothing for Sylvan Lake residents and was an active volunteer until she was 95.

Within weeks Sylvan Lake councillors will be listening to the results of all the hard work done by their staff to prepare next year’s budget. Then they’ll be asked to make the decision about how much to tax their residents and businesses and what projects need to remain as priorities. These discussions and debates are really the main time councillors can have a significant impact on the town’s direction. Once the budget is passed it becomes the road map for the next 12 months and altering it dramatically is much more difficult. Will they choose a three per cent increase in taxes as palatable without causing a revolt? Will it be more? Less? No one likes tax increases but we’ve been led to believe they’re a necessary evil that we have to put up with. So along we go each year with very little squawking. Have we been so conditioned that we don’t hope for a reduction? Certainly another increase is one issue taxpayers should be addressing with their councillors now before the direction for next year is set. Another issue looms every year when the Canadian Federation of Independent Business examines tax rates. This year’s analysis of property tax gaps states “commercial properties continue to bear a disproportionate share of municipal taxes. Of the 349 municipalities in the province, 256 levied a higher property tax rate on commercial prop-

erty when compared to residential property. The report titled “The Real Fiscal Imbalance: An analysis of property tax gaps in Alberta” shows the 2011 property tax gap for Sylvan Lake is 1.86. The same gap existed in 2012 tax rates. The property tax gap is described as the non-residential mill rate (which is imposed on commercial properties) expressed as a portion of the residential mill rate. Using the Sylvan Lake number that means the tax rate for commercial properties is 186 per cent higher than the rate paid on residential property. Lacombe (131 per cent), Blackfalds (131 per cent) and Innisfail (124 per cent) all have a lower difference and Rocky Mountain House charges the same rate for both categories. Why is it important to consider the impact of this differential? Because municipal taxes are one of the factors businesses take into account when considering where to locate. If this council was interested in attracting and retaining businesses in our community they should at least have a discussion about reducing the gap. That, of course, would mean requiring homeowners to pay a higher portion of the total tax bill. Since there are more voters among residents than business owners it’s a difficult decision. But it is a decision that should be considered for the long term health of our community. We wonder, as well, what residents think about the

extensive list of capital projects included in the 10 year capital plan. We share Councillor Ken MacVicar’s concern about where the money is going to come from for things like the redeveloped multiplex, a new fire hall, a community recreation hub, various water, sewer and road construction projects

as well as additions to the vehicle fleet. Taxpayers, it’s time to speak up and let our elected officials know your thoughts and concerns. Take advantage of the open microphone session at the beginning of each town council meeting to speak directly to them, talk to our councillors where you see them on the streets or in the stores, send emails (their addresses are on the town website) or write a Letter to the Editor to share

your comments with the rest of the community. The time is now to have a discussion with these folks — before the first critical decisions are made in the process of establishing next year’s budget. We understand there will be time after the draft is completed for further input but we believe the earlier in the process comments are provided the better chance they may be factored into the decision making.

Thanksgiving a time for friends, family, and the ideal pie crust COLUMN For the first time in five years, I celebrated Thanksgiving at home. Before this year, the last time I had been with my family for the holiday was when I was in Grade 12, before I had started university. Thanksgiving has always been a big production for my family. My aunt, an excellent chef, cooks a huge turkey, mashes potatoes to a creamy pulp, and makes a couple other side dishes. Everyone else in the family contributes a dish, usually a vegetablebased accompaniment. My grandma makes pumpkin pie, including the crust, from scratch. Every year I’ve been there,

my grandma has never been happy with the pie. Despite everyone else’s insistence that the pie is delicious, she finds a problem with it. This year, she claimed the crust was too thick. Another year, she thought the pie was “crunchy.” Yet another year, she said she’d bought the wrong brand of canned pumpkin, so the filling didn’t taste right. I celebrated Thanksgiving in a different location every year when I was at university. Most years I went home with friends, to be with their families. One year I didn’t go home with anyone, and stayed in residence with the 12 or so other remaining girls, most of whom were international students.

Aleisha Bosch Sylvan Lake News

It was interesting for me to see how other people celebrated Thanksgiving. One family ate their dinner at 3 p.m. Another had different vegetable side dishes than I was used to. No one else celebrated it with their entire extended family. Despite the different foods or eating time, there were more similarities than differences. My friends’ families were always welcoming and happy to have me, just like my family. They were accommodating of the fact that I don’t eat meat, and let me

contentedly eat the vegetables without forcing the turkey on me, just like my family. I’m lucky to have the friends I made at university. They were my family when I needed them to be. My real family worries a lot. They worry about being late for Thanksgiving dinner, or the gravy being too thin, or the turkey being too dry, or the pie crust being too thick. Even though my family worries a lot about things that don’t matter, they’re still my family. My family are the only people in my life I didn’t choose. They’re also the only people I never had to make an effort for. They give their love unconditionally. This year’s Thanksgiving had

all the food I remembered. After dinner, I talked to my cousin, who has been living in Ontario for university for the past six years and who I only see a couple times a year. We talked about our childhoods, and about activities we did together when we were younger. We laughed about the things we did. I have a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my friends, who were always there when I needed them. I’m thankful for my family, who accept me and my nonturkey eating ways. I’m also thankful for delicious pumpkin pie, and a grandma who strives to make the ideal pie every year. This year’s pie was delicious, and the crust was perfect.

69 years ago ... From the issue of October 20, 1943

The meeting addressed by Tim Buck in the Alexander pavilion Tuesday night was well attended. Speaking in favour of the LabourProgressive party, Mr. Buck expressed the opinion that the Capitalistic system has produced much that is good

but had outlived its usefulness and the people should turn to Socialism. He outlined some of the things accomplished by Russia and recommended that all parties in opposition to Liberals or Conservatives, should unite together. At the conclusion of the meeting a collection was taken; about $150 was received. J. Taunch was chairman. ♦ ♦ ♦ The W.I. hall was “jammed to the rafters” last Friday evening at the bridge and whist party sponsored by the Soldiers’ Christmas Cheer committee. It was possibly the largest gathering assembled in the hall for a card party. Total receipts amounted to $84. In thanking those who had purchased tickets and all who had helped to make the affair a grand success,

Robert Speedie announced that the B.E.S.L. Red Deer, had contributed $25 to the fund.

Voting was very light at the polls Wednesday as electors turned out to select two town councillors. Of over 1,000 eligible voters only 295 cast ballots. Mrs. Elmer Peterson topped the poll with 233 votes, Fred Moore was second with 133 votes, Mrs. Marjory Lane 116 votes and Dale AuBuchon 51 votes. Elected were Mrs. Peterson and Mr. Moore. ♦ ♦ ♦ During the monthly Sylvan Lake Home and School Association, a buzz session was held to determine the feel-

ing of parents with regards to school parties and dances and at what age students should be allowed to attend. Mrs. Luoma, assistant secretary of the C.N.I.B., gave a comprehensive account of the founding (in 1870 by Col. Baker), purpose and ways the C.N.I.B. helps blind people. ♦ ♦ ♦ Some of the more privileged citizens were amazed to look out their windows on Wednesday to see little green and gold men busy raking their yards. The Wolf Cub pack had turned out in full force to do their “Good Deed” and were very sorry they couldn’t get around to do all the yards. ♦ ♦ ♦ Cubs and Scouts will hold their apple drive on Saturday afternoon.

Stop expecting less and start demanding services everyone else gets Dear Editor, I read Mr. Dressler’s letter on urgent care last week and I am concerned with some misleading facts. I am sure if the editor checked with EMS services that their ideal response time is three minutes. I would ask the editor to check the average time. I am sure it can be much longer. I would also like to recognize that Mr. Dressler was extremely lucky to have such a wonderful experience in Emergency at Red Deer. I am sure some readers can tell you that is not the usual scenario. My biggest concern is that some Sylvan Lake residents (not all) seem to want to settle for less

from the provincial government. During the early 1990s, it took a LOT of hard lobbying to simply get our high school updated. Previous to that effort, we were not in any five year plans, insulation (which was hay) was falling out of ceiling tiles and there were numerous documented issues in air quality affecting students. Now, I am sure with the growth in this community, we need a new and larger high school. While the school is a separate issue, it’s reflective of the process that is sometimes required to get a response on an important issue from the provincial government.

To ask and expect medical coverage 24/7 or least extended hours in evenings is not unreasonable. Smaller communities in this province have even more. Didsbury has a hospital with 24/7 emergency care, extended care, a lodge and now under P3 partnership, will be getting supportive living as well. Their population is half of Sylvan Lake and Olds has a hospital only 11 km. away. I don’t think it is unreasonable that a community of our size to ask for Urgent Care. We need to be able to respond to n on - l i fe - t h re at e n i n g medical conditions and it could take some of burden off the existing

Emergency in Red Deer. Cochrane, Okotoks, and Airdrie all have urgent care. By the way, Mr. Dressler, your visit to the Emergency instead of an Urgent Care facility cost me more as a taxpayer. In addition, that air ambulance you talked about has to come from a base in Calgary or Edmonton which does not happening in under 30 minutes. If we had Urgent Care, the physician in Urgent Care would be able to stabilize a patient, do X-Rays and blood work while waiting for STARS. This would be a win-win scenario for everyone. I ask Sylvan Lake citizens,

to STOP expecting less than the norm and start demanding services that everyone else in the province takes for granted. Your tax dollars are paying for 24/7 hour

Emergency care in Didsbury but not here Mr. Dressler. Please understand that the budget for an Urgent Care center comes from AHS (Alberta Health

Services) — our provincial tax dollars, not the Town of Sylvan Lake budget. A concerned taxpayer. Laurie Norris, Sylvan Lake

Man up, clean up, set up Dear Editor, When oh when is the mess at the corner of highways 781 and 11 going to be cleaned up and a set of lights set up? Now STOP “PASSING THE BUCK.” As that corner is now, all emergency vehicles are impeded from all directions — yes think about it — you can do it. RCMP, ambulance, fire department work with lives in their hands at all times — lives are counted in seconds. You do not have the right or power to decide who will live or die. So clean up that grave error at the corner

Taxpayers should not wait for increase before requesting review of town finances Dear Editor, The following appeared in the Red Deer Advocate recently. “The province will examine the spending habits of the Town of Penhold following requests to conduct a municipal review. After the town raised taxes by 4.75 per cent this year, a number of citizens voiced their outrage to town council. Mayor Dennis Cooper said in light of the concerns, town council requested a review from the province. At the same time, town resident Ken McCarthy hosted a rally and gathered a petition with 585 signatures requesting the same action. Wendy McGarth, a Municipal Affairs public affairs officer, confirmed that the province accepted the petition and will conduct a review in the coming months. The inspector will look at the town’s policies, financial statements and the practices of the town and interview town council, staff and administration.”

The accompanying article speaks about a municipal review of the Town of Penhold management and spending practices. It is prophetic of what needs to be done in Sylvan Lake as well. A letter in last week’s paper spoke about the town’s deception in approving the demolition of the lighthouse at the marina due to its supposedly unstable condition. The real reason is that it will impair the views from the new condos being developed at that site. Several weeks ago another article revealed how the town blatantly ignored the needs of the cruise boats which have a legally binding agreement to moor at the marina. They gave the developer permission to reconfigure the waterway making it too small for them to operate out of. Last spring the mayor proclaimed in the newspaper that boat launching at the marina would be preserved despite massive development being allowed there. This summer I spoke to a worker at the

deserted boat launch. He confessed that their plan of raising launching fees to $40 had worked better than putting up a fence to keep people out. Welcome to Sylvan Lake, if you can find access to it. Basic downtown services like a gas station, a grocery store or a boat launch are non-existent. Lights at the main highway intersection on top of the hill have still not been installed to provide complete access. When the downtown business association dissolved several years ago they gave a substantial sum of money to the town for building a small amphitheatre on the pier. What happened to that money, or was it needed to build the new Taj Mahal behind Lions Park instead? There are too many behind the scenes deals going on and certain people’s priorities are being pursued without regard for the views of the democratic majority. Taxpayers are the ones paying the bills and they should not

wait for another huge tax increase like the Town of Penhold experienced before demand-

ing a municipal review in Sylvan Lake. Craig Little, Sylvan Lake

Editor’s Note: The money from the downtown business association still sits in town

coffers awaiting a solution to the amphitheatre request.

Apologizes for driving packer down Lakeshore Drive Dear Editor, To residents of the Town of Sylvan Lake — I have spent the past several months residing in your beautiful lake town, and enjoyed its natural beauty along with the easy going friendly attitude. It had come time for me to move on into another chapter in my life and I decided to invite two long-time friends up to the lake for one last weekend of summer. Given that we are all young men who enjoy a good time and tend to bring out the party in

each other, the beers were flowing fast so I decided I’d show them the local bars where we tried to play keep up with each other. On the way home we joked and horsed around in a construction zone where we noticed the keys were in the packer machine. We fired it up and off we went, all knowing what we were doing was wrong. We egged each other on and ended up driving a few blocks where a local heard the noise and called the local authorities who came and dealt with us appropri-

ately. We intended this to be a joke and luckily nothing or no one was injured. I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to the town and its people for the disturbance. Will Archer, Edmonton Editor’s Note: This event occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 23. The owner of the packer did not wish to pursue charges, according to RCMP Cst. Landon Durston.

Unacceptable and dumb behaviour Dear Editor, During the night and early morning of Sept. 23, 2012, myself and two others had way too many drinks and did an unacceptable thing of starting up a packer and driving it down Lakeshore Drive. This was unacceptable and

dumb behaviour made on my part. I am truly sorry for those who were disturbed by my ignorance. I love the town of Sylvan Lake and its kind citizens. I apologize to Olds Concrete and their employees. I did not mean for any damage to be made to the

wonderful work they have done. Again, I apologize for my reckless behaviour and am very thankful that we have been treated so very fairly by the Sylvan Lake police department. Nic Monod, Banff

Without thought of consequence Dear Editor, My name is Phil Hudec from Canmore, Alberta. Myself and a few friends came up for the weekend for some activities, some of which included consumption of alcohol. On the walk home from a bar after many drinks, we walked

past a construction site with machines, one of which was a packer with the keys in the ignition. Being a couple of boys who seek adventure, we decided (stupidly and without much thought of consequence) to take it for a joy ride, causing a ruckus and

quite a public disturbance. On behalf of myself and my friends, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to the Sylvan Lake community, RCMP and Olds Concrete for our reckless behaviour. Phil Hudec, Canmore

Variety of topics covered at women’s retreat by Steve Dills Sylvan Lake News

Over 100 women learned that there’s truth to the statement “laughter is the best medicine” when they heard Camilla Jones, keynote speaker at the 10th annual Women’s Wellness Retreat Saturday. She opened the full day event with a fun-filled hour that delved into the healing power of humour and received a standing ovation for her performance. Donna Arnold, of the Henday Association for Life Long Learning, which sponsored the event, said when planning their tenth event they wanted a speaker who had triggered high ratings from women who attended the retreat in the past. Two of the attendees had their names drawn and were whisked away for a fabulous makeover courtesy of Jute Studio. For the rest of the audience, they had the choice of 12 different topics they

could attend during one of three 75 minute sessions. The presenters dealt with Biophoton Light Therapy, The Truth about Chiropractic, Soul Flow Yoga, Couponing, Greening Your Food Choices, It’s About Caring, Not Just Healthcare, Get To Know Your Camera, Body Awareness, Introduction to Sanskrit Chanting, World of Watercolour, Dream Catchers and Soul Trauma. Arnold said it’s nice to have the event locally so people don’t have to go elsewhere. “We always try to do everything as local as we can.” This year the lunch was catered by Sylvan Lake & Area Community Partners Association. Reaction from participants has always been very positive. “They rave about how excellent it is,” said Arnold, who indicated they ask participants to evaluate the presenters and topics after the event. “Definitely, the evalua-

tions are always excellent — people can hardly wait for next year.” In about two weeks, they’ll start working on next year’s event which is usually held the second or third weekend of October. “It’ takes a lot of work,” Arnold said about booking speakers and sessions. “We always try to have the brochure out by the end of June.” Among those on the

committee this year were Barb Watson, Giselle Campbell, a representative from Community Partners and Arnold. They’re always looking for more members to share the workload. If you’re interested contact Arnold at Henday Association for Life Long Learning (403-227-2866) or Campbell at Family Education Support in the Community Partners office (403-887-9989).

Consideration, please! Dear Editor, On Monday, Oct. 15th at approximately 8:30 p.m. (after a long shift at Red Deer Hospital emergency where she works as an E.R. nurse) my wife visited the Shoppers Drug Mart here in Sylvan Lake. She parked her gold Toyota Corolla in the spaces directly across from the front doors of that store. As she finished her

shopping and came out of the store, she approached her car and noticed quite a large dent in the driver’s side door, which obviously was not there before she went into the store.

team of the Royal Canadian Air Force may grace Sylvan Lake’s Centennial celebrations next July. Councillors gave the okay at their meeting last Tuesday for the Snowbirds to perform a flyby at as low as 150 metres (500 feet) over the lake. Since the Snowbirds’ schedule is booked two years in advance and already 98 per cent full for 2013, the only date that’s possible is July 17. The request must still be approved by the Snowbirds. In order to seek approval for the flyby to take place as low as 500 feet, the mayor or town council letter must specifically concur with this request, indicated Captain Bruce Ehmann of Special Events Plans, 1 Canadian Air Division Headquarters in Winnipeg. Councillors unanimously passed a motion to forward a letter of support for the performance and approve the flyby as low as 500 feet to take place over the water. Mayor Dennis Cooper of Penhold has been instrumental in assisting the C entennial Celebration Committee in organizing this addition to our planned centennial celebrations, according to a report to council by Marilee Littmann.

Admirals off to shaky start following home opener by Ted Stephens Special to Sylvan Lake News

Sylvan Lake Admirals roared out of the harbour and had a tough time staying afloat. Last Friday the home opener against the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs looked more like a shooting gallery than a hockey game. It took just 50 seconds for the Chiefs to draw first blood taking advantage of the weak defensive effort that left Admirals’ goaltender Jordan Ramstead hung out to dry. The Admirals responded four minutes later on a power play when Paul Mailey put home a rebound served up by Brandon Knelesen and Brandon Baumgartner. All three are new to the Admirals roster.

The Chiefs kept the pressure on and poor puck movement, combined with unnecessary turnovers, allowed the Chiefs to hold the edge. They struck again with 1:42 to go and followed that with a third goal a minute later. The second period saw the Admirals serving a penalty from the first and a quick goal 58 seconds in gave the Chiefs a three goal cushion. The Admirals were in a tailspin and things just got worse. More turnovers and bad decisions allowed the Chiefs to score twice more before Ramstead was mercifully pulled in place of Scott Galenza. That seemed to right the ship for a moment and Paul Mailey put home his second of the night with an assist going to Luke

Boyer. Admirals penalty trouble then started and the Chiefs took full advantage of poor coverage, scoring twice before the period was done — both goals on the power play. You might think the Admirals would just drift off into the sunset but the third was the best effort from all concerned. The Chiefs were dominated for the first five minutes and action was end-toend with decent chances for both teams and the goaltenders stopping everything thrown. As luck would have it, the Chiefs got a break first and scored their ninth goal of the game with 6:04 remaining. The Admirals pushed back and on a power play Colin Zimmer slid home the goal with helpers from

Reed Watts and Kurtis Ross. Under two minutes l ate r Br an d on Baumgartner took a feed from Paul Mailey and the final goal of the game was scored. Final tally 9-4 for Fort Saskatchewan. Admirals player of the game was Paul Mailey.

in the league has gotten better and our players had better step up if they expect to win,” continued Stephens. “We definitely have some things to work on in practice and an effort like tonight will not cut it. The third period showed what we could do when everyone settled

“Too many players gave a poor effort.” said Coach Jason Stephens, after the game. “We can’t fault the goaltenders when they have no support and we can’t expect last year’s record to mean a thing if we don’t give it 110 per cent every shift. “This year every team

down and just did their job but that needs to start from the drop of the puck, not from seven goals down.” Next home game for the Admirals is tomorrow (Friday) at 8:30 p.m. in the multiplex when the Innisfail Eagles will be in town.

Run School Grade 7 student Dylan Harnett braved snow and freezing wind to compete in the CWAJHAA cross country meet last Thursday. Highlights of the day included Fox Run student Kyle Richmond placing first in the Grade 6 boys division, and Gunnar Kasha of École H. J. Cody School placing sixth in the Grade 9 boys race.

Correction

! 

When you make influenza immunization an annual event, you protect yourself, your family, and our community.

Chilly - École Fox

The Arashi-Do article in last week’s Sylvan Lake News contained an error in the results. In the Submission Series in Edmonton, Guy Lacoursiere received a silver medal, not a fourth place medal as reported. He competed in Gi and No-Gi. Sensei Ken apoligises for this incorrect information given to the paper.

REDCALF Dylan 1992 ~ 2012 Dylan Redcalf, of Rocky Mountain House passed away tragically in Calgary on October 13, 2012 at the age of 20. Dylan is survived by his mom Suzanne Redcalf and his dad James Redcalf, his brother Loren Delainey Redcalf, sisters Mitzi Danielle Redcalf, Savannah Erin Strawberry, Teeya Paige Strawberry, and Olivia Leeann Violet Saulteaux. Also left behind is his special mom Louise Russell (Adrian Strawberry), grandparents Patricia Rayner, Charlotte Redcalf, Gina Ward, and numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles. He was predeceased by his Step-dad Ernest Redcalf in 1996, Grandpa Shorty Redcalf, and Grandma Sarah Schug. Dylan’s passion in life was the freedom of skateboarding. He inspired many people with his demonstration of commitment to skateboarding. He was also an active member of the Aboriginal Resource Center encouraging his culture and continuing education. He was his mother’s ‘rock’ when it came to keeping his sisters and brother safe and secure, meeting their needs with hugs, a listening ear and access to bannock. A Wake will be held at the Native Friendship Center on October 17, 2012. A Funeral Service will be held at the Rocky Funeral Home, Rocky Mountain House on October 18, 2012 at 11:00 am. Following the service burial will take place in the Pine Grove Cemetery, Rocky Mountain House.
