Town council drafts new policy By Amelia Naismith In the wake of denying a business incentive grant to an affordable housing project, town council has decided to draft a new policy regarding grants for multifamily units and infill development. The business with the affordable housing project was denied the business grant Jan. 28 because council felt it didn’t meet proper qualifications. “I’m still standing by what I said before,” said Coun. Gayle Rondeel. “I’m all for making an additional policy that would cover residential of multi-family and in-
fill and subsidized housing of affordable housing, if that’s what we want. But I don’t believe that this particular application that we got warrants approval.” “I think it’s clear it doesn’t. If it was going to be accepted we’d either have to change the policy or waive the policy,” added Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson. Rondeel would have been more supportive of the application if it had been made clear from the start it was to be affordable housing. Traditionally, it can’t be constructed just anywhere. “Usually it takes consent from your neighbors because as it states here afford-
able housing is low-income, often transients, which brings other issues to the neighborhood,” said Rondeel. “The whole thing about it is it’s got to be planned and intentional, meaning you apply,” said Coun. Paul Payson. On the recommendation of CAO Tony Goode, council decided to begin drafting a new policy for infill and multi-family units in general, not just affordable housing. However, Rondeel wanted a clause or appendix added addressing only affordable housing. That way other factors such as infill incentives and preferential mill rates could be considered.
Historical Society requests funding By Amelia Naismith More budgeting requests are being presented to Rimbey’s town council, including one from the Rimbey Historical Society. At council’s Jan. 28 meeting the historical society asked council for $10,000, to add to the $78,000 they have in the bank. Pauline Hansen, who presented the request to town council, says the money is needed to help pay for Pas Ka Poo Park and the museums because money they’ll use from funds given to them by the county, as well as money from the spirit and the casino but it won’t be enough to cover all expenses, some from the previous year. Hansen told council last year’s operating budget for the park was approximately $50,000. “It’s a little hard for our society, we do do very well on the fact that we have been able to keep up what buildings we do
have with the labour that we do have.” Hansen, and the society’s president, Harold Kenny, say the labour isn’t able to keep up with the demands of the park because the volunteer force is aging faster than new volunteers are being attracted. With the volunteers aging Hansen feels, although they still combine to a total of 4, 563 hours, the hours they work are less productive than they used to be. “You know, the boys are getting slower. There are some jobs we can’t get done on our own; it takes longer to get done. We’re finding now a rainy day isn’t a day to do anything.” “We’re finding out that some of our funds are going to have to go to wages in order for trades people to help us get some of the projects done. So that’s really going to tap into our funds that we have,” she added. Kenny pointed out the problem wasn’t a lack of volunteer hours. “What we’re re-
Correction In the Jan. 29 issue of the Rimbey Review, on page 12, the council budget article reported the Town of Rimbey has a debt of almost $500 million. The correct figure is a debt of almost $5 million. We apologize for the error.

ally talking about here is maintaining the current level of recreation that we have at the park.” Coun. Gayle Rondeel asked Hansen and Kenny if there were ways the town would be able to help find younger volunteers and retain the current ones, such as support programs and training. “You bet. We’ll take any help we can get from the town and we welcome any suggestions you have to increase our volunteer base,” said Kenny. Previously, the society bought a $400 ad asking for more volunteers and received one offer for help at the show and shine. “One last point I’d like to make is the current level of funding we are receiving from the town has been at this level for several years now, and I think we even have to account for inflation,” said Kenny. Like with other requests for funding, council deferred making a decision until budget time.

At some point, Albertans will have to decide whether they are progressive or conservative. This clash of political ideals wrapped up in Alberta’s ruling party seems to make sound, sensible governance impossible. When Alberta is awash in oil revenue, successive Progressive Conservative premiers have bowed to the pressure of their progressive ministers to spend and build. When the taps are tightened, these same premiers apply the brakes, cut programs that were deemed necessary just a few years or an election ago and mull over raising taxes. And then the boom and bust cycle repeats itself. Premier Alison Redford gave a televised State of the Province address to try to explain to Henry and Martha why the government hasn’t a clue how to run the province. Instead of taking responsibility for spending waaay more than the government takes in, Redford blamed the Americans for increasing their domestic oil production and lowering the price, thereby creating the $6-billion gap in

But a harmonized sales tax and reduc-
ing income taxes? Would that affect Alberta’s perceived tax advantage? Would a sales tax and reduced corporate taxes spark the economy? If we’re all taking home more money would we mind paying a sales tax? If a sales tax can be sold to Albertans as means to even out the dips in the roller coaster, it must be coupled with reforms to runaway government spending. And that would mean breaking or delaying billions in election promises to special interest groups, school boards and municipalities. The Redford government will present its $40-billion —give or take a billion —2013-14 budget sometime in March. And it may take the next six weeks for cabinet to decide whether we are in for another round of Kleinian-style spending cuts, borrowing to fund capital projects, creation of a new savings plan, corporate tax hikes or some combination. But more than likely this government will spend whatever savings we have left and once again tie its success to higher energy prices.
Liberals have more in common with Tories than NDP Anyone still fondly clinging to the hoary belief that Liberals and New Democrats are natural soul mates clearly isn’t paying attention. The cross-border embrace between the premiers of British Columbia and Alberta — Alberta Tories are helping B.C. Liberals raise money and may even be loaning them political operatives in an effort to defeat the NDP in the upcoming provincial election — underlines afresh that Liberals have more in common with Tories than with New Democrats. The political party that almost invariably wins in Canada is the one best exemplifying opportunity, meritocracy and freedom, while the losing party is often identified with the defence of unearned privilege. This has long been the pattern federally and provincially. Take the long period of Liberal dominance in Ottawa in the first half of the 20th century where the Grits spoke up forcefully for moderate taxation, open immigration, religious toleration and ending ties with Britain. These were Main Street attitudes. The Tories were often stuck defending Bay Street, the imperial tie, sectarianism and suspicion of immigration. Canadians were most comfortable with the Liberals but liked to keep the Tories in reserve, as a discipline on the arrogance of a party too used to thinking of itself as the nation’s natural government. And when the Tories did take power, their behaviour wasn’t all that different from that of the Liberals, although competence wasn’t always their long suit. Even when the Liberals were se-

Library growth changes request By Amelia Naismith Rimbey town council is once again reviewing requests for budget deliberations; so last-minute confusions are being ironed out between council and community organizations. Town council’s Jan. 28 meeting was attended by Rimbey library manager Jean Keetch, to explain changes with the library requisition. Because the library has made a deal to buy the town’s side of the administration building budget numbers have changed. The original requisition was $81,805, but was reduced with the $1 sale of the building. The budget was set assuming the town would still cover the utilities the town already paid for. “Instead of you sending us a bill and us sending you a cheque, it was just easier to reduce our requisition by $8,100 and you cover the expenses,” said Keetch. “So if you leave in say July and
then everything becomes ours and all the expenses fall on us, then we would like back the portion of our requisition that has not yet been spent,” she added. If the town vacates the building July 1 Keetch is asking for $4,000 of the $8,100 to be returned. However, what is returned to the library is proportional to how long the town stays in that building. If they leave later than July then less than $4,000 will be given back. “So we’re not asking you to give extra . . . the cost is not different to you, it’s just instead of you covering the costs you’re giving us the money to cover the costs,” said Keetch. Council is unable to give Keetch an answer until the budget is set. However the councillors and Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson agreed Keetch’s request was understandable. Council also recognized that in the future more money will need to go to the library for adequate staffing.

Trudeau seeks better government system By Amelia Naismith The future of this county lies in Canadians banding together for, not only a new government, but also a better government. One Justin Trudeau is hoping to lead. On Jan. 27 its Liberal leadership frontrunner made a quick stop in Ponoka at the Kinsman Community Centre to present his goals, visions and priorities for the future of Canada, as well as any questions made by the public. Trudeau told the crowd of 120 what they already know about Canadian politics and progressed into how he, as a Canadian with the same shared values, is going to breath life and honesty back into
the political system. Along with informing people how they can vote in the Liberal leadership campaign for free, Trudeau spent his time in Ponoka adamantly promoting his idea that Canadians need to come together as a people and blur the differentiating political lines to evolve the country, all under the ideas Trudeau brought to the table. “What we have right now is a time where we’re incredibly cynical, as a people, about politics. We’ve resigned ourselves to voting against. We vote against the right from the left, we vote against the left from the right. We accept the least possible of the worst situations out there and we’re not vot-

ing for,” said Trudeau. Not only are voting Canadians disengaged from politics but so are up-and-coming voters, which is a concern of Trudeau’s. “Young people, who are more informed and more aware about what’s going on the world around them than any previous generation of young people, are active on social media, active in the communities, active in local initiatives, active in big, global NGOs and single-issue causes. But active in politics? No, not worthy of their time.” That there is such disengagement across the board is a condemning reflection of the politicians, not of the public, said Trudeau. Canada is facing economic unbalance. According to Trudeau, over the past 30 years the economy has grown by more than 100 per cent while average, middle class incomes have risen approximately 13 per cent. To Trudeau, this is an indication that, for the first time in Canada’s history, one of the country’s fundamental promises has been broken. “That
when you get to this country . . . You can work hard and create success for yourself and create greater opportunities for your children,” he explained. However, he feels this is no longer the case. “There is an uncertainty around the very idea of progress in this country, and that fact is not just an economic challenge.” That promise also meant that Canadians were able to put aside their differences, look beyond the identity of politics and recognize each other as Canadians first, Trudeau said. “But the cynicism and the polarization has driven us to disengage from the nation-building, the kind of stepping-up that has always characterized what has been greatest about Canadians.” Trudeau says it’s because of the disconnect created by the polarization of politics, elected representatives are getting away with most everything. He feels this disrespect for the voices and promised of the public “are an absolute perversion of the core movement that brought the current prime minister to power.” The right Trudeau, as leader place to find of the Liberal party, would eliminate the difthe right ferences and disconnect person for between Canadians. the job. However, he knows to lead them to trust one another they must first trust him and re-engage in politics. “The poli403.843.4909 tics of strategic division and calculation can’t be very effective, and the current prime minister’s majority is proof of that.” While Trudeau wants co-operation between Canadians he is strongly opposed to political co-operation and a “mishmash” coalition of the parties.

By Amelia Naismith Alberta Health Services and their Alberta Healthy Living programs are providing people with the knowledge and tools to wisely look after their hearts and bodies. The Heart Wise program will be coming to Rimbey Feb. 13 and continue on every second Wednesday of every second month. “These programs have been running for a while,” said Reneé Nuttall, client health educator with Alberta Healthy Living programs. “(They’re) very beneficial. They’ll learn about what is blood pressure and what is cholesterol.” Those who attend the workshop will also learn what their blood pressure and cholesterol numbers should be, as well as risk factors. The free, three hour presentation begins at 9 a.m. in the Rimbey Hospital conference room. Half will be conducted by Nuttall and the other half by a registered dietician.
“We also talk about healthy lifestyle choices and how people can manage their heart health,” said Nuttall. The end of the workshop will include a goal-setting session. Although each workshop will provide the same information Nuttall encourages people to attend more than one to learn and retain as much information as they can. “Every time they come back they’ll get another gold nugget of information.” On Feb. 19 there will also be a Better Choices Better Lifestyle class at the FCSS conference room, from 1 to 3:30 p.m., which is part of a six week program. Also on Feb. 19 in the Rimbey Hospital conference room, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., is Craving Change. “That’s more around why we eat the way we do,” said Nuttall. Every second Wednesday of the month during every alternate month to Heart Wise is classes teaching the basics of diabetes: learning to care for and manage pre diabetics and type 2 diabetes. Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Community Health Centre.

RCMP serve a busy week Success coach collaborates on self-help book Rimbey RCMP had a steady week investigating 40 files. Highlights of the week include break and enters, theft, uttering threats to kill, motor vehicle collisions and more drug charges. Liquor store thefts under investigation Police are actively investigating the rash of liquor store break and enters in Rimbey since December. Mounties are pursuing all leads in these matters. Several liquor stores in central Alberta towns have been hit in the last month. The investigation is ongoing. Report suspicious activity Another oilfield site was targeted by thieves who stole diesel fuel from the tanks located at a rig site east of Rimbey. If you witness a suspicious vehicle in your neighborhood, please call police immediately. In some cases, police have received tips from observant citizens but they called us the following day and the culprits were long gone from the area. Rimbey Mounties have laid many charges for these type of crimes this year. In several cases, the bandits were from elsewhere. Help us catch them at the scene of the crime. Call right away. Drug charge laid A 49-year-old Rimbey woman was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana. Chronic offender jailed Mounties took a very well known 44-yearold chronic offender straight to jail this week for breaching his court ordered condition to not consume alcohol. He is also charged with uttering threats and for causing
mischief. Weather leads to collisions Winter road conditions made for a hectic week responding to collisions in the area. In several incidents, vehicles ran off the roadways. Thankfully, there were no life-threatening injuries and in most cases, everyone was wearing a seatbelt. Mounties attend domestic disputes Officers attended several more domestic disputes where alcohol was a contributing factor. In several cases, charges were laid for assault or for breaching a court order to not consume alcohol. Sadly, children are often in the home witnessing the chaos so Children’s Services assisted police during the investigations. Collision with moose causes antlers to loose An officer attended the scene of an accident this week where an SUV collided with Bullwinkle. The impact was so severe it knocked the antlers right off of the big bull moose. The responding officer thought about displaying the antlers proudly in his den but then reconsidered the idea since it would have been difficult to explain the bright yellow paint and tire impressions left on them from the crash. If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP at (403) 8432224 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477, #8477 on Telus Mobility or *8477 on Rogers AT&T Crime Stoppers is a community program that does work. Do your part and call now.

new anthology; Unlocking the Power of You: 12 Keys to Health, Happiness and Success. Unlocking the Power of You is compiled from the works of 12 different authors. Each author is a self-improvement expert with topics ranging from attracting your ideal weight, to soul care for the super stressed woman, to finding happiness in life’s messes. Co-author Zaheen Nanji, who is also a success coach, professional speaker and owner of Shanti Wellness Centre in Wetaskiwin, feels the book will educate and motivate readers to develop the attitude, skills and habits to improve their life in whichever area they want. “I like that everyone can read this book and get something out of it.” Nanji’s section of the book deals with weight gain, loss, and attracting your ideal weight. “It’s mostly for people who’ve been struggling with their weight for a number of years. I think they’ll understand why I have a reason for struggling with food.” In her chapter, Nanji talks about using pleasure and negativity as motivations to lose weight. She says those who are motivated by pleasure, such as wanting to lose weight to become more flexible, while negative motivation would be wanting to lose weight because one doesn’t want joint pain. Those who are motivated by pleasure are able to keep the weight off because they have an easier time looking forward to achieve their goals. “I’m hoping that reading the book, people will realize what about weight loss is important to them and why they want to lose weight. Once they figure out what’s important that will actually motivate themselves to get back on track.” When Nanji was given the opportunity to be a part of the book she jumped at the chance. “I knew I always wanted to write a book. You just have that goal, but you don’t know where to start.” Working on Unlocking the Power of You gave Nanji the skills to meet a deadline and with one book already done she’s looking forward to writing another, which will be a memoir. When Nanji was 15 years old she immigrated to Canada without her parents. While having to overcome cultural differences, many of them associated to weight gain and her personal relationship with food, Nanji also worked to overcome a stutter she’d had all her life.

Bringing fresh fruits School hosts Winterfest By Amelia Naismith school also wants events such as Winand veggies to markets terfest to serve as a door opener to tell If you have ever wondered what was involved in growing fresh fruits and vegetables for u-pick, farmers’ market, a Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) operation or some other channel for the direct market, there is a conference coming soon that will give you lots of information. The Alberta Farm Fresh School (formerly known as Berry School or Berry and Vegetable School) provided producers of all experience levels with a chance to learn, share information, network and build their capacity for success. This year, as in years past, there will be introductory and advanced sessions on fruit and vegetable production and marketing. There are sessions on introductory strawberry, raspberry, Saskatoon berry, blue honeysuckle and vegetable production, as well as pest management. There are also advanced sessions on specific pests (current and future), foreign labour, fruit wine, strawberry fertility, high tunnel production, encouraging beneficial insects, corn mazes, as well as current vegetable research. On the first day, there will be a direct marketing stream, with sessions on school tours, hiring and retaining employees, marketing health and nutrition, on-farm festivals and special offers. On the second day, a new third stream will focus on direct market livestock production and marketing. Speakers for the sessions will come from across North America, including Pennsylvania, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. During the course of the conference there will be many opportunities to network and create connections with fellow growers and newcomers. It is a great value for the amount of information you can gain. The school will be held in Edmonton on Feb. 28 to March 1 at the Best Western Westwood Inn. Interested participants can find registration information on the Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association website, as well as a tentative agenda outlining the various sessions and speakers.
Rimbey’s Christian School recently held its Winterfest, and although it wasn’t as well attended as hoped, spirits remained high. Winterfest included skating, sledding and hotdog roasting at the school. Mike Fairfield, development officer with the school’s development board, was hoping the Winterfest would serve as a good communitybuilding event. Along with strengthening its relationship with the community, the
people about Christian education. “We plan to have a couple of events each year where we’ll invite the community at large,” said Fairfield. “We’re getting together and having a good time.” Larger events the school’s taken part in include have a float in the Rimbey Rodeo parade and a barbecue. In March the school will also a spring banquet fundraiser, with dates to be announced.

If folk music, jazz and Stevie Nicks were melded into one musical entity it would be a replica of the band The Georgia Guidestones. The band’s official biography says the group was named after the stone monument anonymously erected in rural Georgia, 1980. “The monument lays out 10 principles to guide society into the future, and the band’s roots are likewise both prescient and timeless,” reads the bio. The eclectic group, composed of musician/producer Kevin Sharp and vocalist Erin Brookhouse, also has alternative rock undertones running discretely throughout the self-titled, debut album. Following a definitive strategy, Sharp writes the lyrics for his female counterpart, who pierces each song with her compelling voice. It’s enigmatic and
evocative, and matches the mysterious melodies of the album perfectly. The lyrics are also unique and stand out with a fresh vibe amid the mainstream music scene, flooded with similar sounding songs and messages. Goddess and Wednesdays Dream (Thursdays Love), easily the most memorable songs on the album, hint of smoky underground lounges and resonate with Brookhouse’s seductive voice. Tracking Time Part 1 starts out very different from the rest of the album, with a raw, intimate, acoustic feel. The
song melds into the album’s final track, Tracking Time Part 2, a strong ballad that follows suit to the bands soft-spoken yet powerful vibe. However, the arrangements of Stealth Cat, both instrumental and lyrical, are annoying and over-thought The more their album was listened to the better it became. This is definitely one band that will permanently be added to the Ipod. The Georgia Guidestones is an upand-coming band that looks to have a long career ahead of them.

How to prevent frostbite Frostbite is relatively common and can occur to anyone who is exposed to extreme cold. Awareness of frostbite and how to prevent it can help people who hope to spend ample time outdoors this winter avoid this potentially painful condition. What is frostbite? Frostbite is the freezing of body tissue, most notably the skin. Certain areas of the body are more susceptible to frostbite, including the nose, ears, toes and fingers. Those who have circulation issues or diabetes may be more vulnerable to frostbite and will have to be extra diligent in covering up when venturing outdoors. Many cases of frostbite occur in persons who work outdoors in the cold, including soldiers stationed in cold climates. The homeless and winter outdoor enthusiasts are also susceptible, as is anyone who spends time outdoors when the temperatures are very cold. Symptoms of frostbite Cases of frostbite vary in severity. They can range from mild frostnip, which is just a temporary cessation of feeling in extremities, to superficial frostbite, where only the outer skin is affected, to deep frostbite, the most severe type of frostbite wherein the underlying tissues also freeze, possibly resulting in permanent damage or even amputation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, frostbite can initiate with redness or pain in any area of the skin. As it progresses, the skin may take on a grayish-yellow hue. Numbness may set in, and the skin could feel very firm or even waxy. Progressed frostbite will appear black, and blistering may be present. A person experiencing frostbite is typically unaware that the condition is occurring because of the numbness. It often takes the trained eye of another person to point out frostbite. Treating frostbite Depending on how long the skin has been exposed to extreme weather, frostbite treatment can vary. At the onset, individuals experienc-
ing the primary symptoms of frostbite, including redness, tingling or numbing, can benefit from moving into a warm room. Removal of wet and cold clothing is also advisable. The affected tissues should be warmed gently with warm water. The water should be comfortable to the touch in areas not affected by the frostbite. Do not use hot water. If warm, water is unavailable, use body heat to warm the body. This can be done by tucking cold hands under armpits or sitting on them with dry legs. It is unadvisable to use a dry heating source, like heating pads or a campfire, to thaw frostbitten skin. Also, avoid massaging or disturbing the tissue on frostbitten skin, which can cause further damage. Prompt medical attention should be sought to determine the severity of the frostbite. A combination of warm therapy and hydration could help salvage damaged tissues. Preventing frostbite The easiest way to ward off symptoms of frostbite is to be diligent in preventing it from beginning. This includes wearing several layers of clothing. The innermost layer of clothing should be something that wicks moisture away from the body. Mittens provide more protection than gloves, and wool socks can add an extra layer of warmth to feet and toes. Ears and the face can be covered by scarves or special hat and mask combinations. Increasing physical activity will help keep warm blood pumping through tissue and help a person to stay warm. Avoid smoking tobacco because it can constrict blood vessels and increase the risk for frostbite. On the same token, do not drink alcohol because it may create the sensation of warmth and may lead a person to think he or she is warm, even if frostbite is occurring. Keeping a few chemical hand warmers available as well as keeping an extra blanket tucked in a car trunk can help one avoid a cold-weather emergency and reduce the risk for frostbite.

How to succeed with habit goals Making Habits, Breaking Habits by Jeremy Dean c.2013, DaCapo Lifelong $26/$29 Canada 256 pages No more unfulfilled promises. No more embarrassment, explaining, or excuses. You’ll never have to hide that bad habit Terri again because you’re goSchlichenmeyer ing to quit smoking, stop The Bookworm gambling, be kinder, resist going online every ten minutes, lose weight, whatever it is you’ve been meaning to do for months. This year, you’re really going to do it. You’re really going to do it. You are. And with Making Habits, Breaking Habits by Jeremy Dean by your side, you really might accomplish that goal. Step into the self-help section of any bookstore or library, and you might think that “21” is a magic number: a lot of books claim that you can fix your life in that many days. Jeremy Dean says establishing habits isn’t that easy, however. Research shows that it takes an average of 66 days for a habit to be formed, depending on several factors. A “really strong” habit could take a year to create. From the time we get up in the morning until the time we fall asleep, we follow habits without thinking about them, which is one of the main characteristics of a habit. Habits are also “curiously emotionless” and are generally followed in connection with another situation: you get in the car and turn on the radio because, well, you’re in the car. That’s a habit made in “response to rewards from the environment.” Conversely, making habits can also be intentional but it depends on how worthwhile we find them. You may intend to get to the gym every day, for instance,
but if you’d really rather stay in bed, guess which activity wins. “There has to be an ultimate goal that is really worth achieving or the habit will be almost impossible to ingrain,” says Dean. Muster all the will power your body possesses, visualize until your head hurts, but nothing works if there’s no internal reward. External rewards, Dean says, are “laced with danger.” As for breaking habits, it’s hard to stop doing something you’re not aware you’re doing. What’s worse: studies show that trying to suppress a thought or action makes you want to do it all that much more. So forget about self-control, says Dean. Instead, change your cues, pay attention, know yourself, and learn some “happy habits.” Looking for a quick-fix for those New Year’s Resolutions? Nope, Making Habits, Breaking Habits ain’t it. By helping us understand what makes us tick and why, author Jeremy Dean avoids platitudes and misty advice to give his readers the tools they need to stop being frustrated by change and lack thereof. He advocates patience and dispels a lot of myths about why we do the things we do (or don’t), explaining why our willpower fails us or why we find some habits easy to make. That’s helpful, and could make a fix that sticks. While there are times when this book seemed smaller than its subject, I think it would be advantageous to anyone who’s serious about changing behavior. If that’s you, then find Making Habits, Breaking Habits — and then do it.

Augering controls insects in colder weather Warm weather during the 2012 grain harvest benefited producers, but it also benefited insects that feed in stored grain, says Brent Elliott, an infestation control and sanitation officer at the Canadian Grain Commission. However, cold winter weather can help producers control insects. “Now that winter’s here, producers need to reconsider how they’re managing insects in their stored grain,” explained Mr. Elliott. “Because fumigation does not work below 5 degrees C, it’s not the preferred method for insect control. The good news is cold temperatures are very helpful for controlling insect populations.” Colder temperatures allow producers to control insects by using a combination of aeration and grain movement. Using aeration Aeration systems preserve stored grain and keep it dry by reducing the temperature of grain and reducing moisture migration. If you use an aeration system for your bins, you should turn it on during the winter months to cool your grain. The temperature of the grain and the ambient temperature outside will dictate how long to leave aeration on. More information about aeration is available on the Canadian Grain Commission’s web site, www.grainscanada.gc.ca.
Prairie winters are usually quite cold, making winter the ideal time for cooling grain. At -20 degrees C, it takes just one week to disinfest or control all life stages of stored insect pests. The time needed for disinfestation changes depending on the grain’s temperature as shown in the table. Disinfestation time periods Constant grain Time period for temperature disinfestation 12 weeks -5 oC 8 weeks -10 oC 4 weeks -15 oC -20 C o

Using grain movement You can also use grain movement, which can kill insect pests such as the rusty grain beetle and red flour beetle. Augering grain out of a bin and then back in will reduce the insect population. Augering also helps to break up any hot spots in the grain. Molds and secondary insect pests, such as the foreign grain beetle, can develop in hot spots. In cold weather, grain exposed to cold air during augering will cool off quickly. This may help to reduce your aeration time. However, you should always monitor the temperature of the grain in storage to be sure.

TENNANT Mrs. Jean Hansena Tennant of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully in the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Sunday January 27, 2013 at the age of 83 years; with her entire family by her side. Jean was born in Provost Alberta, she was the youngest of 5 children born to Hans and Sina Hanson. Jean was raised on the family farm located by Metiskow, where she later met her husband Hugh Tennant. They were married on the 10th of July in 1952; together they farmed in the Cadogan area. Searching for expansion they moved with their boys to the Hoadley area in the spring of 1974, where they resided until their retirement. Jean provided for her family by tending her garden, knitting, quilting, and baking fresh bread. She enjoyed spending time with her family and neighbours, and camping. Predeceased by her parents Hans and Sina Hanson, and by two infant daughters; Robin and Sandra and one brother, Albert and a sister Ruby, Jean is survived by her loving husband Hugh of Rimbey, three sons; Brian (Kathy) Tennant of Bluffton, Randy (Linda) Tennant of Bluffton, Darren (Michelle) Tennant of Bluffton, fourteen grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. Jean also leaves to mourn two sisters; Pearl Schenk of Winfield and Edith Landry of Provost.
