Council holds secret ballot to vote in a new representative to sit on Rimoka board By Treena Mielke There was a few tense moments at council’s organizational meeting, Oct. 22, when a secret ballot was called to determine who would represent council on the Rimoka board. Once the vote was counted, it turned out Coun. Jack Webb, who has represented council on Rimoka for two years was ousted from the position by Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson and Coun. Gayle Rondeel. Mayor Ibbotson and Coun. Rondeel, who replaced former councillor Joe Anglin on the board, each said earlier they wanted to sit on the board. “I would like to be more involved in Rimoka; what they do and how they operate at a board level. I look forward to the opportunity of being part of their efforts,” said Ibbotson after the meeting. Coun. Rondeel said later she wanted to be on the board because of her concern for seniors in the commu-

nity. “The level of support for seniors, whether they are active and mobile or need a higher level of care, is important to me.” Coun. Jack Webb said he enjoyed his time on Rimoka board and is disappointed he will no longer represent council in that position. He said he, too, cares about the seniors in the community, noting his family roots go back generations in Rimbey. “Does anyone here think I didn’t do a good job while I was on the board?” he asked council before the vote was taken. Webb was assured that his time on the board was well spent and he represented council well. Assistant CAO Melissa Beebe said it is unusual to have three vying for a position on a board, but if it does occur, a secret ballot is held. There were few changes to the other boards and committees for town council.

Anglin speaks out against the Electric Utilities Amendment Act By Treena Mielke MLA Joe Anglin is less than impressed with a new bill introduced by the Tories to ensure all future transmission line projects are reviewed and approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission. “Every jurisdiction in North America uses a utility board to make decisions,” he said. Anglin, the Wildrose MLA for Rimbey-Rocky Mountain HouseSundre, said the bill was changed by the Conservatives in 2009 to eliminate the process of approval by the AUC, and instead making it law that the provincial cabinet approve the projects. Anglin said his primary bone of contention with the bill is the government wants to leave the lines in that they have already approved. “That is problematic on a multitude of levels.” The MLA said DC power lines have been approved between Calgary and Edmonton at an additional cost of $2 million. “No one can answer the question as to why DC lines were used,” he said. “Who made that decision? Nobody seems to know. And what does it get the public?
Anglin said the issue may be debated in the legislature Oct. 31. “They are wasting a lot of money.” Bill 8, the Electric Utilities Amendment Act, 2012, is based on input from Albertans and a direct response to a key recommendation in the Critical Transmission Review Committee report, which the province accepted in February. Under the Electric Statutes Amendment Act, 2009, the government approved the need for four critical transmission infrastructure projects. These included the Heartland transmission line, the Edmonton to Fort McMurray transmission lines, reinforcement lines between Edmonton and Calgary (north-south lines), and a Calgary Substation. These projects will all continue as plans; however, all new projects will be subject to the AUC needs-assessment process. In its report, the CTRC reaffirmed the need for the north-south projects. “Alberta needs strong transmission as our province continues to grow,” said Ken Hughes, minister of energy. “Allowing the electricity regulator to determine need will give confidence to Albertans that projects moving forward will help power our homes and communities.”
Council notes and highlights By Treena Mielke Council, at its Oct. 22 regular meeting, heard from a representative from the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association. Tabatha Phiri, program co-ordinator for Women’s Economic Security and Safe Home Program from the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association told council the program is looking for people to participate in focus groups who have immigrated to Canada and have had challenges finding employment, encounter language barriers, cannot find adequate housing and are facing other challenges. Anyone interested in participating is asked to contact the Central Alberta Women’s Association at 403-341-3553 in Red Deer. The women’s association also wants a representative to sit on the advisory board. Council forwarded the information provided by Phiri to FCSS. Walking trails budget deferred Council deferred a decision to fund walking trails until budget meetings that are to be held in November. The recreation board is looking
to extend the existing trail north from the RV Park to the Best Western Hotel area. Costs to develop trails is estimated at $125,000 per kilometre. Administration will meet with Tagish Engineering and the rec board to determine the trail location, length, surveying and right of way agreements with landowners as well as construction costs. Rimoka’s Rimbey project looking good Coun. Gayle Rondeel reported she had attended an annual general meeting of Central Alberta Seniors’ Housing Association Oct. 19 at The Black Knight Inn in Red Deer. Mike Leathwood, assistant deputy minister for Alberta Municipal Affairs, reported on the Rimoka’s Rimbey project for seniors housing. “He said they were very close with the re-development application and Dennis Beasley, who is the CAO of Bethany Group, said this is very significant because it is the first time the project has been mentioned at a public forum by the government.” Rondeel sees this as a positive indication of the project moving forward.
Accident: Rimbey Volunteer Fire Department, Rimbey RCMP and emergency crews responded to an accident on Highway 20 at Range Road 32 between a truck and a car. The accident occurred at around 5 p.m. and traffic was down to one lane until around 6:30 p.m. The drivers of both vehicles and a passenger in the car suffered minor injuries in the accident.

Businesses will drive growth here Every week should be Small Business Week. The growth of Rimbey’s economy doesn’t just happen — it’s driven by small businesses and their patrons who have an incredible influence on success. From restaurants to car washes and your hometown newspaper, small businesses have a huge economic impact on our communities. Today is certainly a period of opportunity and crisis for small businesses in Alberta. It takes a lot of courage to be in business. Economies are growing and creating huge emerging markets. Businesses are George Brown setting their sights on Off the Record the enormous potential of these expanding new economies. To survive and thrive, our small town entrepreneurs need to be part of this movement by taking advantage of the tremendous opportunities arising in a world without boundaries. Even as some small businesses are laying off workers, there are still lots of job openings to take up the slack. Certainly the entrepreneurial spirit of these business owners is inspiring: they have an idea, a business plan and the drive to see their dream come true. With their ideas they are making our communities better places to live and work. They make our communities stand out from the cookie cutter power centres that assault the scenery on your trips to the Big City. Shopping locally recycles your paycheque through the community. Local small businesses use local suppliers, pay rent to local landlords, advertise in community newspapers, and open accounts in our banks and credit unions to pay their bills and employees. A vibrant downtown must be a central part of planning Rimbey’s economic future. Rimbey’s planners, facing a new set of growth challenges, must be reminded that there are a number of economic, social and environmental benefits to strengthening local businesses. We are facing the challenge of preserving historic small town values without stifling economic growth. We need to retain our communities’ character and values while at the same time providing and nurturing new economic opportunities. A dozen small businesses, offering a multitude of product and service choices, will do more for the community and competitive pricing than a couple of big box stores giving us the same product at “bargain” prices. We need prosperous small businesses in our local economies. Without them, we lose our power to influence the decisions that affect our community. On a personal note: Congratulations to my old drinking and fishing buddy, Randy Bertrand, recently retired as the Town of Devon’s manager of economic development. The Alberta Tourism Awards Committee has given him the 2012 Alto Ambassador Award for his outstanding contributions to Alberta’s tourism industry. Randy was an inspiration to many of us on the economic development board and chamber of commerce in Devon. He is known throughout Alberta as a leader and true ambassador of tourism. His vision and dedication has contributed to tourism becoming the largest economic driver in Devon, which now welcomes more than 750,000 visitors annually. His successes are proof this economic development mumbo jumbo actually works.
Fuel from air to replace oil? (by Klaus Lackner of Columbia Stockton-on-Tees, a small city University and David Keith of in northeastern England, has only Gwynne Dyer the University of Calgary) that one claim to fame: the first-ever Guest Columnist can extract CO2 from the air train ran from Stockton to Darin industrial quantities, but the lington in 1825. But it might one price per tonne at the moment is day have another claim: a locally based start-up company called Air Fuel Synthesis about $600. That’s far too much but as Lackner points out, has just produced the first gasoline from air and the cost of any new technology plunges steeply water. It isn’t a lot of gasoline — five litres (one once it goes into volume production. And the cost gallon) in two months — but Peter Harrison, the of getting hydrogen from water may also drop company’s chief executive, hopes within two dramatically. Daniel Nocera of the Massachusetts years they will build a larger plant producing a Institute of Technology has developed a catalyst tonne a day.

Peter Harrison is cagey about his current “We’ve taken carbon dioxide from air and hydrogen from water and turned these elements into production cost per litre, but as he told The Ingasoline,” Harrison told a conference at the Insti- dependent in a recent interview, “You’re in a tution of Mechanical Engineers in London.

The question is how much it costs to do it, compared to just pumping oil out of the ground race to capture that market. Maybe the cheaper option will be to grow green algae in wastewater and refining it. The answer in the past has been: far too or salt water, crush it to extract the oil and then much. Splitting water molecules takes a lot of refine the oil into gasoline. But one way or another, the gasoline we put energy.

The Rimbey Review, October 30, 2012 5
The sad state of the beef industry The most recent massive recall at Alberta-based XL Foods is the last thing the Canadian beef industry needed, especially as it supplies 40 per cent of all beef consumed domestically. This incident may yet again damage the industryâ€™s already fragile image, particularly considering that the USDA may have discovered the outbreak before our own Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). As consumers are questioning their relationship with their steak or hamburgers, the beef industry in Canada continues to work to recover from the 2003 mad cow crisis. Given the potential impact of this recent incident, it may never. On May 20, 2003, international borders were closed to the import of Canadian beef almost immediately following the announcement that mad cow disease had shown up in an Alberta Black Angus breeder cow. Thankfully, the cow didnâ€™t get into the human food chain but the damage was done. The embargo lasted more than two years and the industry lost more than $4 billion. Domestically, however, Canadians kept on buying beef. In fact, Canada became the only country in history to have seen its beef retail sales go up after discovering its first native mad cow case. In a time of crisis, Canadians showed solidarity toward their farmers. Indeed, Canada Food Day, a national event that celebrates local Canadian food products, began as a response to the mad cow crisis. Overall, from the perspective of Canadian consumers, this potentially disastrous incident never became a food safety-based confidence issue. However, nine years later, times have changed. More Canadian consumers are having serious conversations about diets, trends and global food systems; that is, they care more about where their food comes from. In addition, aggregated food demand in the country is fragmenting faster than ever; many consumers are increasingly shopping with a conscience, asking questions about such issues as conditions of production, which includes the issues of animal welfare, fair trade and organic farming. As these and other questions get
Sylvain Charlebois Troy Media Guest Columnist
deeper traction in our collective Canadian food space, producers must recognize that critical consumers are increasingly a force to be reckoned with. As a result, demand for beef has been shrinking slowly but surely since mad cow hit the sector almost a decade ago. To make matters worse, the sluggish economy has compelled consumers to opt for options such as cheaper proteins like chicken and other substitutes. The beef industry is also facing some major challenges in international markets. In 2003, the Canadian dollar was at 73 cents US; as a result, America, historically our biggest export market, considered Canada as an affordable source of fresh beef products. Now, with the dollar hovering at around parity versus the American greenback, the Canadian beef industry is regarded differently down south. For Americans and other export markets, the macro-economic environment has forced our beef industry to charge more for virtually the same product. Since 2003, the Canadian beef processing industry contracted by more than 15 per cent and the XL Foods episode will definitely not enhance the industryâ€™s quality image abroad. To add to the systemic pressures the Canadian beef industry is facing, input costs are also increasing, which makes its business case weaker almost by the day. The global market landscape for beef has changed. What is worse, though, is that consumers themselves are in a different place as well. With this latest recall at XL Foods, the Canadian beef industry is facing some major headwinds. In 2003, in the midst of the mad cow crisis, the Canadian consumer came to the rescue. It is unclear whether Canadian consumers are willing to give the industry another chance, as more options and substitutes are offered to them. Only time will tell. Sylvain Charlebois is associate dean of the College of Management and Economics at the University of Guelph.
Rimbey great community to live in Dear Editor: I came to Rimbey 11 months ago. I came to cover a three-month sick leave for Rimbey Victim Services. I am now leaving to move to Mexico with my family. I just wanted to take a minute to tell the community how absolutely awesome the people on Rimbey and district have been to me and my daughter. I could name so many places like the library, the post office, the churches, interagency, the schools, the art club, the Lions, the Royal Canadian Legion. I could go all day telling what great groups and business you have.
I appreciate all of you. I have enjoyed the friendships, the kindness and the acceptance. I appreciate all the wonderful meals and fun house sitting jobs in and out of town. Victim Services has a great board and group of compassionate advocates. Everyone made my job easy. I must also remind you that the Rimbey RCMP is composed of many caring individuals who work very hard to keep your community safe. Thank you for the Rimbey experience. Janet and Gabby Porter

Aquatic centre busy last summer, revenues show increased usage By Treena Mielke
The Rimbey Aquatic Centre was a busy place this summer and the children’s slide and play area was especially active. File Photo
The Town of Rimbey got its feet wet this summer with the opening of its new outdoor aquatic centre but while the municipality sometimes appeared to be sinking in the deep end, overall, the pool’s first season went swimmingly well. Recreation director Rick Kreklewich said even though the pool ran at a $88,000 deficit, revenues were higher than expected. “The old pool had a revenue of around $60,000, and we have so much more to offer the community with our new facility.” Kreklewich presented a report to council regarding the aquatic centre at its Oct. 22 meeting. The report stated head counts of people using the pool showed a significant increase from 2009. He said during 85 operating days, 2,315 people used the pool compared to 2009, when there were 880

single admissions during 88 operating days. Adult admissions increased significantly from 2009 with 565 adults signing in to use the pool compared to 101 three years ago. The pool saw 488 family admissions compared to 293 in 2009. This year 75 individual seasons passes and 51 family passes were sold compared to 28 individual season passes and 28 family season passes in 2009. The sale of individual and family punch cards more than tripled from three years ago. Despite the added usuage, the pool was closed at least twice due to mechanical problems. “We expected to run into a few unforeseen issues in our first season, but we never expected the issues to be as severe as they were,” said Kreklewich. “The first issue that we discovered was the pooling of water in the change areas and the slippery conditions it caused. The drains in the change areas of the building seemed inadequate, considering the level of water coming from both the showers and pool. As a cost-saving measure, the floors of the change areas were left as finished concrete instead of tile. This created a slip hazard when the water pooled on the floor.” Kreklewich said matting on the walkway beside the showers helped alleviate slipping and the floors are now being acid-etched and painted with epoxy paint. The pool was closed for a few days this summer due to a leak in the main drain box caused by water pressure. To ensure the leak doesn’t occur again concrete was added underneath the box, the box seam repaired and a layer of pool membrane added to provide additional support. At the end of the season, another leak was discovered in the pool in the main drain line from the pool crawl space to the mechanical room. This leak is being repaired as are superficial cracks in one of the hot tubs. On July 13, in the middle of the pool’s busiest time, the boiler pump motor quit and the pool ran without heated water until July 20. The pool operated regularly for the rest of the summer until Aug. 27 when the chlorine levels were below required operating levels. The pool re-opened on Aug. 31 and closed for the season Sept. 3. Changes made to the spray park included placing matting at the end of the slides to cushion the landing. A second filter was also added to the mechanical vault. Kreklewich said the area next to the tipping buckets needs to be landscaped to prevent water pooling there. Despite mechanical issues, Kreklewich said the pool operated as closely as possible to the original schedule. “We had the same schedule as in years past but included more aquafit times, a teen night and a free swim which was very well received sponsored by Value Drug Mart. The busiest times were the afternoon and evening public swims followed by the family swims.” Despite a few ripples in its first season, Kreklewich said pool staff maintained constant levels of professionalism and expertise. “We received a lot of positive comments about the staff and how they were aware on deck and great swimming lessons instructors,” he said. “One of the areas that we will try to improve upon is thorough training of staff on the pool mechanical.” He said it was difficult during busy times for staff to be both guarding and attending to patrons at the front desk. He suggested keeping staff at the front counter on busy days and adding a debit machine as a method of payment. Kreklewich is optimistic the pool will run smoothly next year. “In 2013, the pool should be fully operational,” he told council. “We will have our leak issues fixed prior to winter. We plan on purchasing some new equipment including lane ropes, clock, aquafit supplies, office supplies, lifeguard supplies and various pool toys with the money provided by the Lions. New tables and chairs will be purchased for the pool meeting room. This will enhance what we currently provide at the pool.”

Halloween safety tips Every year children anxiously count down the days until they are able to put on their costumes and head out into the neighborhood in search of candy. Although Halloween is meant to be a fun occasion for the young and the old alike, it can also be unsafe. To make Halloween a safe holiday, children and adults can heed these suggestions. • Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes. Although kids might want to wear shoes that match the costume, shoes that fit well and are comfortable are a safer bet. This will help prevent tripping and falling over cumbersome shoes. • Go trick-or-treating in groups. Children should not be allowed to go out in search of candy alone. Going in a group means that someone can get help if need be. Also, there is safety in numbers. Predators won’t view a child as an easy target if he or she is with fellow trick-or-treaters. • Be visible. Since daylight saving time begins shortly after Halloween, there are fewer hours of daylight for trick-or-treating. When Halloween falls on a weekday, children have to wait until after school to venture out, and it can quickly become dark. Therefore, make sure that children are equipped with flashlights and put reflective tape on their costumes so they will be more visible to fellow pedestrians and motorists. • Stick to the sidewalks. Children should stay on sidewalks and cross the street only at established crosswalks. • Do not enter homes. Unless a child is with an adult and the home is owned by a trusted friend, kids should not enter homes for treats. • Avoid candles and jack-o-lanterns. A costume can easily catch on fire, so it is best to steer clear of candles, luminaries and lit pumpkins.
• Accessorize safely. Select flexible swords and knives if they are accompanying a costume. Avoid rigid items that can cause injuries. • Examine all candy before eating. Before kids have their first bite, parents should inspect candy wrappers to determine if there has been any tampering. Also, avoid homemade treats from homes unless you know the people who prepared the items.
Halloween: Many houses and yards in Rimbey are decorated in keeping with the season. This yard on 53rd Street is hauntingly realistic and depicts Oct. 31 in an especially creative way. Treena Mielke Photo

Mimi’s Village informative and entertaining for children Mimi’s Village by Katie Smith Milway, illustrations by Eugenie Fernandes c.2012, Kids Can Press $19.95 Canada 32 pages So how are you feeling today? If you’re feeling well, that’s great! But think about the last time you felt really sick. That’s when Mom took you to see the doctor, who looked down your throat, checked your ears, and sent you home with some medicine. But what if you didn’t have a doctor nearby? What would your family do? What would you do? In the new book Mimi’s Village by Katie Smith
Terri Schlichenmeyer The Bookworm
Milway and Eugenie Fernandes, a little girl thinks about that, and then she has a dream… It’s a sad day in the village where Mimi Malaho lives. Last night a baby died and his mother is weeping with the village’s other women. Mimi is too young to sit with them so she quietly goes home. She worries about her mother, and the baby Ma is expecting. Her family has been lucky; nobody has gotten sick so far. But then something horrible happens! Mimi’s little sister, Nakkissi, drinks some dirty water. She was thirsty and though Mimi knew she shouldn’t do it, she
gave Nakkissi a drink by the river. That night, Nakkissi felt awful. The little girl moaned. She couldn’t keep anything in her tummy, so Ma and Pa wrapped her in a blanket and put her in their cart. The whole family started walking down the path to the next village, where there was a clinic. It took an hour. The next morning, there were lots of people lined up at the clinic. Nurse Tela took care of everyone, including Nakkissi and all the babies. As Mimi watched Nurse Tela weigh each baby, she learned that the next day was vaccination day. The Malahos decided to spend the night at the clinic so they could get vaccinated. They wanted to stay healthy. When she got home, Mimi heard her father talking about malaria, which was making lots of the village’s children sick. Mimi knew that was true, and she was thinking about a wish she’d made the day before. She was thinking about it when she went to bed and that night, she had a
dream. Her dream led to an idea. Her idea led to a project. Her project led to something very good for Mimi, her family and her whole village. Even though your child is small, you can bet she’s listening. Surely, she knows that health care is a big issue these days. Mimi’s Village takes that knowledge to the next level. Inspired by real events and real people, author Katie Smith Milway explains a grown-up issue in a kid-friendly way and children will definitely identify with a girl like Mimi. Smith gives kids more information about Zambia health care workers and health care in general, then she and illustrator Eugenie Fernandes explain what readers can do to help make life better for other children around the world. For five- to eight-year-olds who love making a difference, this is a story that leads the way. And for you, Mimi’s Village is a book you’ll feel good about letting your child read.

Warranty coverage proposed All Albertans who buy a new home will have warranty coverage for their purchase under new legislation proposed by the Alberta government. Bill 5, the New Home Buyer Protection Act, introduced in the legislature recently, requires builders to provide home warranty coverage for all new homes built in the province starting in fall 2013. “While most homes in Alberta are built to stand the test of time, if things do go wrong, homeowners will have stronger protection to get their homes repaired,” said Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths. Under the proposed legislation, all new homes (detached homes and condominiums) would at minimum, include a warranty for: • one year labour and materials; • two years for defects in labour and materials related to delivery and distribution systems; • five years building envelope protection, with a requirement for the warranty provider to offer the consumer the option to purchase additional years of coverage; and, • 10 years coverage for major structural components. It is expected that the new home warranty would cost about $1,700 to $2,000 for an average home or less than one per cent of the cost of the average house.

Social media consultant speaks about advertising on the web By Treena Mielke A social media consultant shared her knowledge of online marketing and networking at a Chamber of Commerce and ATB sponsored presentation held recently at the Rimbey Drop In Centre. Jennifer Belanger knows first-hand the importance of the social media. A stay-at-home mom with a natural bent to creativity and out-of-the-box thinking has successfully set up her own business, Mompreneur & Social Media Rock Star. During her presentation, “How to Advertise on the Web,” she provided information regarding online strategies and marketing information. “Twitter is a valuable resource because it provides an instant connection with your clients. The number one way to network online is to tweet,” she noted. “If you are looking to widen your market, Twitter is where you want to be. You can update Twitter all day long, unlike Facebook, which can only be updated once or twice a day.” Belanger said LinkedIn is another valuable resource. “It is the number 1 way companies are hiring right now. It’s like a resume. Fill it out. It truly is a professional platform. It’s great for people who are working on their own and it adds credibility to your resume.” To get the most out of social media, users need to schedule three 15-minute time slots to update
Everybody is Reading It..
“If you want to get ahead in today’s competitive market place, you need to have an online presence.” Jennifer Belanger and maintain their platforms. “Basically, by doing this you’re showing consistency and that you’re actively involved.” Being consistently active online for three to six months should show a marketing return, Belanger said. Facebook is valuable because it allows the user to create interactive pages which promotes interaction. “You want to get your readers to be able to interact with you as much as possible, said Belanger. “Get their opinion and provide content they can easily share. The goal is to get your customers to start spreading word of mouth in a positive way about you on line. Honestly, every business should have a Facebook page,” she said. She stressed that using your name is important regardless of what social media platform is used as it allows the client to know with whom they
are dealing and whether that person is male or female. Do not connect Facebook to Twitter because people who go on Facebook do not understand the twitter lingo and it becomes frustrating for them, she added. “The goal with Twitter is to network with new markets that might otherwise not be available.” Having an online presence, no matter what platform is used, is crucial, said Belanger. “If you want to get ahead in today’s competitive market place, you need to have an online presence.” Belanger offers courses online and is also available for individual and group training sessions at various locations throughout central Alberta.

Council asks for public input regarding closing alley By Treena Mielke Council is holding off on a decision to close a portion of an alley near the school although RCMP recommend barricading it may be the best way to stop speeding motorists who pay no attention to traffic laws. At its regular meeting Oct. 23, council held a lengthy discussion about the alley behind Drader Crescent, finally agreeing to ask for public input before making a decision. Council has received several complaints about speeders in the alley and asked the RCMP for recommendations as to how to deal with the issue. These recommendations, which were included in the council package, included closing off the alleyway entrance between 5323 and 5319 as it joins Drader Crescent or closing off the road between the school
and the water tower property. Installing speed bumps at the west end of 54 Avenue as it enters into the school bus barn property and near the entrance of the school where the bus lane joins 52 Street was suggested as another solution. However, if speed bumps were used, RCMP also recommend putting up fencing to close off the school’s parking area so motorists wouldn’t use that area as a detour. In a memo to council, assistant CAO Melissa Beebe said the fire department and the owners of Cast-A-Waste were also contacted regarding closing the alley. Beebe said the best option would be to close the alleyway entrance between 5323 and 5319 Drader Crescent and allow only pedestrian access. “This would not impede the residents that currently have access to the back lane,” she said. However, Coun. Scott Ellis raised concerns about

blocking off that portion of the alley. “My concern is about public access and public space. What is the logic for blocking off public access space? That is an alley that everyone in town has paid for. I feel it is public access space and we have to be careful how we block I off. We need to have a framework on how we deal with this.” “My concern is the school buses and kids coming from both sides,” added Coun. Gayle Rondeel. “My point is it’s dangerous.” Rondeel said traffic needs to be restricted, at least during certain times in the day, before someone gets hurt. “It’s a safety issue,” said Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson. “It’s not just perception; it’s true, speeding is an issue.” Coun. Paul Payson said closing it
seemed a logical solution. “I can’t see any negatives other than a few people having to drive a little further.” CAO Tony Goode said there have been several complaints from Kansas Ridge residents about speeding in the alley. “That’s why we put the 30 K sign up, but nobody pays any attention to it.” Council agreed speed bumps were not a viable solution as they would make grading difficult. Council agreed to advertise the possible closure of the alley between 5323 and 5319 Drader Crescent for two weeks in the Rimbey Review and the public is asked to provide input before a decision is made.

Rimbey RCMP had another active week investigating more than 45 files. Highlights of the week included suicidal people, uttering threats to kill, sexual assault, criminal harassment, impaired driving, drugs and other criminal matters. Locked, loaded and ready to fire Mounties solved more crime last week on the heels of recent arrests. A 40-year-old resident of the Rimbey area seemed really surprised that you cannot drive around town with a loaded rifle in your vehicle. The man was stopped for a traffic offence and had the loaded weapon on the seat. The firearm had a bullet in the chamber ready to fire. The man was charged with firearms offences and the gun was seized. Vehicles seized Four citizens, most of whom are well known to police, were charged for operating a motor vehicle without valid insurance. Fines totalled more than $12,000 and vehicles were seized in each case. Can you smell that? A 44-year-old Rimbey man was charged with production of marijuana after police attended his residence on an unrelated matter and noticed the “wacky tobbacky” plants growing in the house. The amateur horticulturist was charged with having the illegal plants and they were seized as evidence. He was also later charged with threatening to kill a neighbor. The accused will appear in Rimbey court Dec. 7. More wire thefts More copper wire thefts occurred in the Rimbey area. The first was on the night of Oct. 18 near Township Road 442 where a lease site was hit by midnight shoppers who stole grounding wire from the scene of the crime. The second occurred on Oct. 20 near Secondary Highway 761 where thieves stole copper wire. Police are actively investigating these crimes and are diligently pursuing all leads at this time. Waay over the legal limit Another impaired driver was arrested in the evening on Oct. 23. The drunk driver’s child was as a passenger in the vehicle when stopped by police. The man provided two samples of his breath that

nicipalities in the overall rankings are from Alberta. For the third year in a row, Grande Prairie received the best overall score of the 103 cities evaluated across the country, with Saskatoon and Regina rounding out the top three. The rankings of Alberta’s other cities in 2012 were: Lloydminster fifth, Red Deer sixth, Edmonton eighth, Lethbridge ninth, Calgary 13th, and Wood Buffalo (Fort McMurray) 14th. Medicine Hat was in 88th spot. “Obviously, it’s great news to see Alberta’s cities rank so well,” said Richard Truscott, Alberta director. “Many of our province’s urban centres continue to be entrepreneurial hot spots compared to other major municipalities across Canada.” Communities in Boom evaluates the entrepreneurial environment of 103 cities across Canada according to 14 indicators drawn from Statistics Canada sources and survey research conducted with CFIB’s membership. The 14 indicators are grouped into three categories: presence, perspective, and policy. Presence covers the scale and growth of business ownership, perspective measures optimism and growth plans, and policy represents the actions local governments take with respect to business taxation and regulation. “A stronger focus on creating small-business friendly policies would certainly help improve the rankings for Alberta’s cities even further. Sadly, entrepreneurs in many of our cities continue to succeed in spite of politicians and policy-makers, not because of them. That needs to change,” concluded Truscott.

The Rimbey Review, October 30, 2012 13
Headstone restrictions require couple to modify monument By Treena Mielke
thing.” CAO Tony Goode, who recommended council deny the request for reimbursement, said the bylaw states all monuments shall be placed on the foundation provided by the town. All monuments shall be confined within the boundaries of the respective lots and all monuments shall not exceed 40.5 centimetres above the foundation, or not be within five centimetres of the edge of the foundation provided by the town. Goode said the company who installed the headstone that doesn’t meet the requirements of this bylaw has been notified and modifications were to be completed by Oct. 26. He said the company the Picketts purchased the monument from should have looked at the bylaw prior to construction.
A Rimbey couple wants council to pick up the tab for a sizable chunk of change they were forced to dole out to modify a tombstone to meet conditions set out in the town’s cemetery bylaw. Russ and Alice Picketts purchased joint plots at West Haven Cemetery in 1999 but were not told about the headstone restrictions. “At this time we purchased two plots and there was no mention of any restriction of any kind,” Alice Picketts told council when she and husband Russ appeared before them Oct. 22. The Pickets recently purchased a monument to be placed at the plots they had purchased but were distressed to learn the monument did not meet the required restrictions set out in the cemetery bylaw. The couple had already paid almost $5,000 for the monument but paid more than $1,500 to have it modified to meet bylaw requirements. However, when the company from whom they purchased the monument went to the cemetery to put it up, Gwen and they discovered another J. Steffen Brix Olsen monument already in the cemetery much larger along with than their own. Sheila and The Picketts were asKevin Reis sured by town staff this was an oversight and the are thrilled to other monument would announce the be modified as well. However, this was sevengagement of eral months ago and no their daughter action was taken. and son “We realize that it would be hard to approach the family of the loved ones that they had to uproot their stone,” said Picketts, “but we felt we needed to bring this to the attention of the town council as this could affect many people in the future if changes are not being made in the way that these plots are being sold.” The Picketts told randma, Mom, Sister, Grand t G a council they believed they should be reimbursed for the $1,628 it cost them to modify their headstone. “The only fair thing now is that the town be responsible for the upgrade. We should be reimbursed for what it has cost us, not only in heartache but money. We will leave it with you guys. It’s is not the right

“We believe Legacy Monuments should have contacted the Town of Rimbey before the construction of the monument, at which time they would have been advised of the monument restrictions. Our current
practice is to provide a copy of the cemetery bylaw to persons purchasing a cemetery plot.” Council agreed to take the issue to the cemetery board before making a decision.

Potatoes harvested for school fair By Amelia Naismith The leaves are falling, the crops are in and that means harvest dishes and baked goods cooking in the oven. Crestomere School recently had its Potato Pumpkin Harvest Fair that brought in community members with harvest dishes of their own, to sample potato dishes made by each of the classes. The potatoes where planted in May and harvested by the students late September. “Junior high was paired with little kids. We just took an afternoon and dug them,” said event organizer Kathy Bogath. The harvest yielded six five-gallon pails of pota-
toes, which where distributed among the classes. As a class they had to decide what kind of dish they wanted to make. “It’s just like a big potluck,” said Bogath. “And then they each had an area, what harvest is like to them. The grades 1 and 2 class decorated around their table with a Field of Dreams theme. It symbolizes their growing journey with knowledge and growing in the garden, said Bogath. “It’s a good metaphor.” The fair also featured a slideshow of the students digging the potatoes and a photo booth complete with harvest themed costumes.
Sound therapy helps relieve stress By Treena Mielke Siblings who live near Bluffton are convinced sound therapy, special water and stress shield devices have boosted their happiness quota and helped them release stress quickly and easily. Carolyn Karlstrom and her sister, Barb, owners of Empowering Balance Sound Energy, are sound energy coaches who believe everything and everyone has a frequency. “Our voice is more unique that our fingerprint and DNA,” said Carolyn Karlstrom. “It holds all the frequencies of everything that has happened to us, physically, mentally and emotionally.” She said the sound of someone’s voice will indicate whether that person is angry, sick, excited, sad or happy. To balance out the negative emotions, the sisters have a special computer program that creates a balancing frequency. Using a microphone, the sisters record someone making the sounds of ba, be, bi, bo, bu and ha, he, hi, ho, hu. The sounds are recorded into a computer program where they are analyzed. “The computer (program) analyzes them and figures out each individual’s stresses and the frequency of these stresses. Then it makes a CD with sounds of the opposite frequency. When you listen to the CD your body absorbs the frequencies of the sounds cancelling out the frequency of the stresses in your body, neutralizing and releasing your stress.” Karlstrom said the CDs reduce mind chatter, sleep is improved and stress is released. “The best thing is that each CD is personalized to each person’s individual needs,” she said. The Karlstroms have also installed IQubes in

Carolyn Karlstrom and her sister, Barb, owners of Empowering Balance Sound Energy, are sound energy coaches who believe stress can be relieved through listening to the proper sound vibrations. Photo submitted their homes as a complement to the stress reducing sound CDs. These stress shield devices are designed to create a vortex that removes stresses. They cleanse the environment of negative energy creating a space that is calming and relaxing,” said Karlstrom. The sound energy coach also recom-
mends drinking hexagonal water. “This is geometrically perfect water that is absorbed into the cells more efficiently helping hydrate people better.” To learn more about Empowering Balance Sound Energy email Carolyn or Barb at email@example.com
