Plebiscite called for library expansion and relocation of town offices By Treena Mielke After an onslaught of opposition to its plan to accommodate the library’s need for expansion by relocating the town’s offices to the Provincial Building, council has decided to let the voters make the final decision. At its April 29 meeting, council, in a 4-1 vote, agreed a vote will be held June 3 to determine what direction council will take regarding the move and the library expansion. Background information on the ballots will state the library is growing and the town has proposed selling the existing municipal building to the library board for $1 and moving
town administration to the Provincial Building. Apart from one-time capital costs this will not result in increased operating costs for the town. The solution will benefit the citizens by allowing the library to expand in place. The question voters will be asked is: “Under these circumstances, do you agree the library should expand into the existing municipal building resulting in the town office relocating to the Provincial Building?” Coun. Scott Ellis voted against the decision. Ellis, who replaced Joe Anglin, who has since become the local MLA, believes he and other councillors were elected to show leader-
ship and they need to stand by their decisions. “I think our town offices would be fine in the Provincial Building,” he said. “I get that it is an easy decision (to hold a referendum) but in a few months there will be an election and they (the people) can judge us then.” He also gave examples of other municipal councils who have made decisions without holding a plebiscite such Edmonton council who built a new multi million-dollar arena without the matter going to a public vote. “People elected us to make decisions. Sometimes they are going to like our decisions and some times they are not.
Coun. Paul Payson agrees holding a referendum is a “little bit of a back off” but when there are so many people calling for it, he believes council should bend to the will of the people. “I believe we’re at a spot where a referendum would be a clear way to settle this issue.” Coun. Jack Webb agreed. “If we go to the referendum I don’t see how the library loses. Either way they don’t lose.” Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson said a referendum should resolve the issue. “It will settle it once and for all. Plus the library board has asked for it.”

Results of straw poll received Council accepted for information a letter from Dave Karroll regarding a straw poll advertised in the Rimbey Review. In his letter Karroll said 81 per cent of the callers wanted an official referendum on the town office/library issue, 71 per cent wanted a new council, 88 per cent supported leaving the town office where it is, and 66 per cent supported restoring economic development of tax credits. Auditor’s report received Mike Seniuk, senior partner for Seniuk & Company presented the auditor’s report to council. The report showed council has ended the year 2012 with just over a million in surplus funding, of which $677,000 is budgeted for operations. In his report, Seniuk gave credit to staff for a job well done. “You are in a better financial position that you were the year before. All in all, it was a good year,” he said. Tender awarded The tender for the construction
of 53rd Ave. has been awarded to M. Pidherney’s Trucking at a cost of $681,671.88. Project cancelled Council agreed to cancel a project for renovations to the community centre washroom as tenders received far exceeded the $60,000 budgeted for the project. Council may look at the project next year. MSI funding finalized Doug Griffiths, Minister of Municipal Affairs said in a letter to CAO Tony Goode that the town’s municipal sustainability initiative funding for 2013 is to be $544,632, which includes capital project funding of $496,774 and conditional operating funding of $47,858. Allocations are based on the formula established for the long-term program and are calculated annually using updated data to reflect municipalities’’ changing circumstances. The MSI operating funding was $896 million this year. It will decrease to $30 million in 2014, $15 million in 2015 and be eliminated in 2016.
Public has mixed reaction to public vote By Treena Mielke Town council’s decision to go to a public vote regarding the library expansion and the subsequent relocation of the town offices to the Provincial Building is being met with a mixed reaction. Council chambers was packed April 29 when council decided, in a 4-1 vote, to hold a plebiscite regarding the issue but not everyone applauded their move. Jim Moore, who was in attendance at the meeting, agreed with Coun. Scott Ellis, who voted against the plebiscite and stated council needed to stand by its original decision. “It was a good plan. It met the needs of the library, it was relatively inexpensive and it used up unoccupied space in the Provincial Building which has all the amenities to make a wonderful town office.” Moore said people who live in Ponoka County and use the Rimbey library will not have a vote, therefore the plebiscite will not fairly represent all library users. “In trying to bend over backwards to accommodate the community’s wishes, council is, ironically, being undemocratic.” However, Rowena Aitken, chairman of Rimbey Municipal Library board of directors said in a letter to council, a plebiscite is needed. “After great discussion at our last board meeting April 8, we have decided that we will ask you to put the question of the Rimbey Municipal Library’s expansion to the municipal voters. We do
not like to see the town become divisive over this issue nor do we like the negative impact it is havAT THE ing on the library. We feel that, unfortunately, this is the only way to stop the negativity.” In her letter, Aitken also requested the town seek the advice of an engineer for feedback on the A Great Reason to get up on a viability of expanding or renovating the building Saturday Morning! to accommodate both the library and the town ofMay 4-Oct.12 fices. 9:30 am - 11:30 am No Matter where you Reuben Giebelhaus, who began a petition — Pas-Ka-Poo Park go, you can ﬁnd us later deemed invalid — to protest council selling Rimbey the building for $1, was not surprised by council’s decision.

I walked into the council chambers, my high heels making clicking sounds on the polished tile. I tried to make myself invisible and slip unobtrusively past all the people in wheelchairs, but it was difficult, as there seemed to Treena Mielke be lots of them. On The Other Side I smiled at them. They smiled back and the meeting began. I continue to watch them discretely, making careful doodles in my notebook, like I was really taking notes. I wasn’t. They came, many of them in wheelchairs, wearing courage and smiles and bearing carnations and carrying signs saying ‘we will end MS.’ It seems they were here because the mayor had agreed to declare the month of May, MS awareness month. And so, they came to say, ‘thanks.’ They were a cheerful lot, tossing smiles and cracking jokes and laughter about the somber council chambers like so many Frisbees that had somehow got misplaced from the sunshine and the beach. I made meaningless doodles in my notebook until it was time to snap a picture of the signs and the people and the wheelchairs and the smiles. Finally, they leave. They carefully maneuver their wheelchairs around the council table, being careful not to disturb that hallowed space where huge decisions have been made, and will, no doubt, be made in the future. I continued to doodle little stick men in my notebook, but I could hear their chatter in the background, echoing past the squeak of the wheelchair lift and the slamming of the handicapped van door. After they left, the council agenda seemed a little less important, somehow. MS awareness, I muse. Let me tell you about it! MS awareness is trying to get into a parking spot marked handicapped, but being unsuccessful because someone out there is not aware or doesn’t care that you can’t walk.
MS awareness is watching someone you love suddenly develop a symptom, a frightening symptom that they can’t control. Maybe they can’t see or walk or pick up a fork with their right hand. Maybe they can no longer drive. Maybe completing an eight-hour-work day is simply out of the question. Maybe they can walk, but they feel like they have 50-pound sandbags attached to their legs and if they can actually get in and out of a vehicle, it will take at least a half an hour. MS awareness is the scream of an ambulance, hospital rooms and waiting. MS awareness is about lessons. Learning the fruits of the spirit. Over and over again. Patience. Gratefulness. Hope. Faith. Love. MS awareness is about disability insurance and home care. It about learning the true meaning of the words, ‘one day at a time’. MS awareness is about relishing the moments; the precious, special
moments that come, unbidden to each of us. Sunsets, hugs, laughter that bubbles up out of nowhere over nothing very much at all. Mostly MS awareness is about keeping on. Keeping on, even while you shop for wheelchairs and look at home renovations that include ramps and wheelchair lifts. MS awareness is watching your eight and nine year old grandchildren fill in the blanks on the Tshirts they wear when they do the MS walk... “we lace up for our mom and our grandpa.” MS awareness is about remembering the way pussy willows bloom in the spring and crocuses grow, even under the snow. And, realistically, at least for some of us, MS awareness is not just about a month. It’s about a lifetime!
Patience may be trump card needed for good yield Clearly the weather trade is on as wet, snowy weather last week and this week is on the minds of not only investors but also producers. Only 5 per cent of the U.S. corn crop was planted by April 28th, compared with the five-year average of 31 per cent! While most of the U.S. arable land has gone from dry and drought-like to wet and puddleforming, here in Western Canadian we are waiting for the snow and/or flood waters to skedaddle. At the end of the day, the moisture – while mostly appreciated – is putting a significant setback on the actual date seed gets into the soil for both U.S. and Canadian farmers. As such, and as I’ve mentioned in previous columns, addressing how many acres for each of your crops is important. Potential yield risk, critical development stages, and the market available are all important variables to address (among others, of course). You may be on Plan B by now, but do you have a Plan C? While it may be getting more difficult to plant them, cash canola and soybean prices remain strong as old supplies are noticeably dwindling. That being said, an important note was China buying 50,000 tonnes of European rapeseed last week. This could be a trend that continues as
supplies are readily available from other markets. Staying in Europe, the E.U.-27 rapeseed production is expected to climb almost nine per cent from last year’s output to 21 million tonnes. Increased production is also expected in barley (+2.4% per cent to 55.2 million tonnes), soft wheat (+5.2 per cent to 129.7 million tonnes), and corn (+18 per cent to 65.3 million tonnes). Cold and wetter weather in March & April in major producers like Germany, France, and the UK could potentially decrease the final yield there but, all things being equal, it looks like the Europeans will be bringing more grain to market this summer and fall. Granted, there are the likes of German entity Commerzbank who believes the market is underestimating supply threats in many areas around the world and that prices will be higher by the end of the year. I, for the most part, would have to disagree with these bankers from Frankfurt as the regions that were most devastated by drought last year have been helped out significantly recently with precipitation in spades. But has it been too much? Or has been too cold? Let’s be honest with each other – the rains in
the U.S. Midwest and the snowmelt (and slowly, flooding) across most of the Prairies haven’t allowed for too much fieldwork. Ultimately, each subsequent rain (and snow for some areas forecasted) over the next month inherently limits the ability to plant a crop the world needs. We will get the crop in and it will grow. However, as English poet Alexander Pope first wrote in the early 18th century, “fools rush in where Angels fear to tread,” patience may ultimately be the trump card to yield a good crop this fall.

Colleen Weyman has primary progressive multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system and causes unpredictable and challenging symptoms. May is MS awareness month in Rimbey. Treena Mielke Photo
MS challenges faced with courage and faith By Treena Mielke The first thing noticeable about Colleen Weyman is her smile. It’s one of those friendly, genuine smiles, the kind that reaches the eyes and makes other people in the room want to smile too. The second thing one may or may not notice about Weyman is the fact she is in a wheelchair. Weyman has multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system and causes of all kinds of nasty, unpredictable and challenging symptoms, Surprisingly, the diagnoses of MS, which was made in 2004, came as a relief for Weyman, who was slowly losing strength in one leg, experiencing numbness in her hand and blurriness in her vision. “Not having answers is very difficult,” she said. “When you are grappling with the unknown and not knowing what disease you have or even if it’s a disease seemed like a very unfair burden to carry not only for me, but also for those who love me.” Although it was more than a decade ago before she was diagnosed, Weyman remembers how frustrated she was because she didn’t know why she was having those symptoms. When she and her husband moved to Poulsen’s Pasture on Gull Lake, she thought she could keep up with the housework in her new home in a couple of hours. But, much to her frustration, Weyman discovered tasks which once had taken her only a couple hours to complete now took the better part of three days. Finally, her neurologist put a name to her condition. “You have primary progressive MS,” he said. No one who is told they have a chronic disease is pleased with the verdict and Weyman was no exception. “I wasn’t thrilled, but it felt so good to be able to say I have a name (for what
is wrong with me). Some people are upset and even angry when they get the answer. I was just relieved I wasn’t dying.” Once the diagnosis was made, Weyman, once an avid golfer and bowler, decided, quietly and without further ado, to make the best of a bad situation. And being in a chair didn’t stop her. “I never did let or allow things to slow me down much,” she said. “Even now I try to keep busy. And I will until I can’t anymore.” Being able to move her hands is wonderful, Weyman said. “I make my own cards. You know nobody gets things in the mail anymore. So I send my homemade cards out to people.” She also knits and crochets and does puzzles. And she is learning to play the guitar.” Weyman has a motorhome equipped with a wheelchair lift that allows her to travel and visit people, allowing her the freedom she wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy. “It allows me to actually go on a holiday,” she said. Her van also is equipped with a wheelchair lift and is outfitted with a commode for unexpected bathroom emergencies. MS has opened unexpected doors for her, she said. “It has opened a whole new world of communication for me. I can talk to other people who are handicapped in some way and I have no problem doing so. Before, I couldn’t do that.” Weyman is the Rimbey facilitator of a six-week course, Better Health, Better Choices, will be offered in Rimbey later this spring. The course is available for anyone who has a chronic illness or caregivers and offers suggestions and tips on positive ways to helps people deal with their disease. “It seems we all go through bumps in our road of life. It’s how we learn to deal with them that makes the difference in how we live them out,” she said.

Following Rimbey town councilâ€™s approval of an area structure plan for Johnsonâ€™s Estates, Ponoka County has moved quickly to give the financial boost intended to help secure property for a proposed new seniorâ€™s complex. Council approved the plan at its April 29 meeting, and Ponoka Countyâ€™s CAO Charlie Cutforth said the county immediately moved ahead to purchase the land. â€œNow that the area structure plan is approved by the Town of Rimbey and the appropriate zoning is in place, we can proceed with the subdivision final purchase and transfer of the title to the county. We hope to have everything completed within the next 60 days or so.â€? Cutforth said the county has an accepted offer to purchase 9.8 acres from Johnson Estates for $289,000 on the table, but needed the area structure zone to be approved before
finalizing the deal. â€œIâ€™m pleased to see it progressing and anxious to see this done,â€? Cutforth said, following Mondayâ€™s meeting. The town has agreed to cost share the installation of the water and sewer lines from the nearest main to the county purchased land at an estimated cost of $170,000 with the developer. The town has also agreed to do a traffic impact assessment on Hwy. 53 to provide information to Alberta Highways to determine what type of intersection will need to be installed. An application for an aging in place facility for Rimbey has been before the Province for several months. Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson said he is pleased by the partnership with the town, the county and Rimoka. â€œWe are looking forward to a positive response from the province regarding the seniorâ€™s complex,â€? he said.

RCMP deal with break and enters, domestic assaults This past week, the Rimbey RCMP responded to 53 calls for service. Highlights of the week include several break and enters, theft, assault, criminal harassment, uttering death threats, and other serious criminal matters. Oil container explosion being investigated In the early morning hours on Friday, April 26, Rimbey Mounties responded to a scene at Range Road 40 and the Medicine Lake Road. Officers located the remnants of a large plastic oil container that had exploded
in the intersection. Shrapnel from the site of the explosion was found up to 50 meters away in the neighboring fields. Fortunately, a fire did not start from this careless and dangerous exercise. It is believed that the culprits committed the offence at approximately 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Police are currently investigating the matter and following up on all leads after a thorough examination of the evidence was completed. That same night, vandals were up to no good in Rimbey. Several cars were egged causing a considerable mess.
Pool may be open for May long weekend By Treena Mielke Despite some unforeseen problems arising over the winter, Rimbey Aquatic Centre could be open for business on the May long weekend. Rimbey CAO Tony Goode is hopeful the centre will be up and running on schedule but there are a few problems yet to be resolved. He said both hot tubs, which are under warranty, cracked this winter and will need to be replaced. There is also a break in one of the main pool’s pipes that needs to be repaired. Pool staff has been hired with two positions yet to be filled. Kira More will return as pool manager. Lane ropes, clock, aquafit, life-
guard and office supplies and pool toys will be purchased this year with money provided by the Rimbey Lions Club. New tables and chairs are to be purchased for the pool’s meeting room. The aquatic centre opened last year and during its 85 days of operation, it was used by 2,315 people, up from 2009 numbers when there were 880 admissions during 88 days of operation. The usage occurred despite several problems such as leaks in the main pool, inadequate drainage in the change areas and a faulty boiler pump motor. The pool was closed twice due to mechanical problems, closing for the season Sept. 3.
Domestic assaults involve children Police investigated numerous domestic disputes. Children were often involved and Child Service Intake Workers assisted police in those cases. Charges have been laid for assault, criminal harassment and uttering death threats. Unlocked vehicles easy prey for thieves On Monday, April 29 there were several car prowlings in Rimbey. Several unlocked vehicles were entered and various items stolen by the opportunistic thieves. Please lock your doors and do not store valuables in the vehicle overnight. RCMP respond to break and enters Sometime during the night of Wednesday, May 1st, and early morning hours of Thursday, May 2, several community buildings were forcefully entered by thieves. The criminals targeted cash at the locations. Rimbey RCMP with the assistance of the Forensic Identification Section, responded to each scene. Police are using all available means to determine who was responsible for these crimes. Escape tools hidden in cake Rimbey Mounties stepped up and assisted with guard duty during the jail strike. One officer was going to be celebrating their birthday while working at the jail, so the detachment ordered a cake with a saw and file inside. Wouldn’t you know the strike ended before the big day and the plot was foiled.

8 The Rimbey Review, May 7, 2013
Reader disappointed with council’s decision to hold a public vote in June Dear Editor, Regarding the plan to expand the library to move the town office to the provincial building, I was disappointed with council’s decision to hold a referendum on the issue rather than deciding the issue themselves. It was a good plan. I see only good things happening once this project is underway and I am impatient to see it started. I am also disappointed half the users of the library (the ones who live within Ponoka County) will have no say on the outcome of this vote. However, I do understand council’s reluctance to proceed without clear support from the community. They were elected in a controversial election on a platform of accountability and transparency. To give the community a say in this project is only extending this policy and council should be commended for this approach. What disturbs me more than anything is the tone of the attacks against town council. Although there are some who have legitimate concerns over the
library expansion — and council has bent over backwards to try to listen to these people — I feel that there is a concerted effort to harass and discredit this council. At public meetings, in letters to the editor and attack ads in the newspaper, you can’t help but notice how free some people feel to express their anger and show their disrespect for what council stands for. This is strange, for council was elected by a good majority. They do have the support of a huge part of the electorate. At any rate, there is going to be a referendum on the library expansion on June 3. Whether the expansion goes ahead will depend on the results of this referendum. It will be important that all the supporters of the library get out to vote on this day. Remember you are not just voting for yourselves but also for those disenfranchised users of the library who live in Ponoka County. Jim Moore

Physician offers factual driving info Dear Editor: Having recently becoming a senior citizen, I attended MLA Joe Anglin’s presentation on Senior’s Right To Drive. Although billed as an “information session,” it was actually more of a mis-information session. So I feel compelled to provide some facts: • By provincial legislation, all seniors who wish to maintain their driver’s licence beyond the age of 75 must have a medical examination regarding their physical and mental suitability to drive. That senior can attend any physician in the province, not necessarily their own family doctor. • During the medical examination, the doctor is required to decide if a road test is recommended. To assist the doctor in making this determination, I and my Rimbey colleagues have adopted a tool called the Simard test. The Simard is a simple mental questionnaire administered by a nurse and is free of charge. This test correlates with the mental skills needed for driving. It is not a test for dementia. The Simard test is not a requirement of the province and can be refused. However refusal makes it more difficult for the doctor to determine the need for road testing and makes it more likely that road testing will be recom-
MLA slams council’s stand on referendum Dear Editor: More than 400 people signed a petition opposing the town council’s decision to relocate to the provincial building. The town council rejected the petitioners’ call for a referendum declaring the petition was not legal. Matter closed, as some might think. Now, the council has flip-flopped and decided to hold a non-binding referendum based on the illegal petition they themselves rejected. Non-binding means the outcome of the proposed vote will not matter (count). Complicating the situation, the referendum (vote) will be scheduled approximately 100 days before a mandated municipal election. Provincial law prevents having a byelection within six months of a municipal election. The law also suggests all public votes planned within one-year of a mandated election can be delayed until that year’s fall election. The law was drafted to prevent unnecessary elections, however this council will ignore the suggestion and hold a vote that doesn’t count.

mended. • If road testing is recommended, the current best test of driving competence is provided by a privately owned company, Drive Able. The expense of the Drive Able evaluation is borne by the senior. Drive Able is not a requirement of the province and can be declined. The alternative is a road test with one of the province’s local driver examiners. • Contrary to the statement made by Mr. Anglin’s senior’s advocate, there is no fee paid to the doctor for the Simard or the Drive Able test. For many years the province has downloaded the responsibility of determining fitness to drive onto doctors. This can be a difficult task most doctors dislike. After all, family doctors advocate for their senior patients and do not like to be responsible for limiting their mobility or independence. If Mr. Anglin is concerned about a senior’s right to drive, he could use his influence as an MLA to have the province take rightful ownership of a standardized testing process so that all seniors are assessed equally throughout the province.

Confused? The mayor and council intend to manipulate the question to make the non-binding referendum about a library expansion and not just a planned relocation of the town’s offices. There are several suitable options available for a library expansion in town but those locations are a separate issue and will not be up for consideration in the proposed non-binding referendum. Ironically, regardless of the vote, the library does not have the necessary funds to expand anywhere. Rimbey’s citizens are being asked to go to the polls approximately 100 days before a mandated election, to vote in a referendum that doesn’t matter, to decide a question that was never asked — only to satisfy an illegal petition? If the referendum passes, the town offices will relocate so the library can sit in a half-empty building for quite sometime because there are no approved plans or funds available to finance an expansion. It’s tough to make this stuff up, and if it was published in a book, I wouldn’t burn it. We could always cancel the referendum and the proposed relocation, and give the money that would have been paid in annual rent ($18,000) to help fund a new location for the library. But that would take time, which raises a new question. Does anyone know why this must be decided now? Joe Anglin, MLA Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre Editor’s note: The annual rent for the Provincial Building including janitorial and utilities costs will average $30,000 annually.

Karroll wants tax credits re-established Dear Editor: I was encouraged by the unofficial referendum and the response to the question about fixing the tax credit problem the mayor and council created. There was more than 65 per cent support for the question of support for a tax credit program. Everyone knows we live in a society where our economy is fragile and based on confidence; confidence that investors will be treated fairly is necessary for them to come to our community, and likewise those us as taxpayers are treated fairly. Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson has stated publicly at numerous meetings and in the press that the bylaws that were revoked were illegal. Well, I have news for the mayor; any bylaw that isn’t written correctly is illegal and requires correct wording as was apparent in the case of the tax credits council chose to revoked rather than fix. Rimbey’s lawyers stated clearly council could have amended those bylaws to correct the flaws. They further stated council was legally allowed to extend tax considerations to any number of businesses by way of an incentive to attract investment. It was made abundantly clear this past week that other communities in Alberta are aggressively pursuing business investment in their areas. The Town of Mundare has offered prime commercial building lots for the price of $1. They also have had an incentive tax credit program since 2008 that offers a forgiveness of municipal portions of

Dear Editor: Your column in last week’s paper reminded me that I had been pondering the subject of the upcoming elections and “uppity women.” What is an uppity woman? She would have the following attributes: Thinks large; sees possibilities where others see problems; cares about her community; stands up and speaks out; willingly accepts responsibilities and criticism; values knowledge and is committed to democratic principles; and favours free thought, free speech and respect for all. To claim to be an “uppity woman” one would need to posses at least five out of seven attributes. Could there be some uppity women in Ponoka County who would enjoy the challenge of managing the affairs of the county and would run for the position of councillor in the election this fall? The time to think about it is now. Uppity women should attend public county meetings to become familiar with the role of councilor — or maybe take the administrator out for coffee. Lucky men marry uppity women. Irene Lovell

Despite a message that could be the deciding factor in a life and death scenario, only a handful of people showed up at a parent Internet safety training session held at the Rimbey Municipal Library. The session, led by Bob Spratt, a retired teacher and counsellor, provided straight talk about cyberbullying, social networking, online marketing to children and youth, gaming and sexual exploitation. Spratt said the electronic revolution has amazing potential to provide an unlimited amount of useful knowledge. Unfortunately, it is also is the gateway to “garbage” that can be harmful to young people. “It’s all about choice,” he said, adding
an “accidental click” can expose sites with inappropriate text and pictures. Spratt said children as young as two years old may begin playing video games and by the age of five or six begin entering social networking sites such as Webkinz. He said children of this age require supervision and hands-on guidance as they explore the web because they do not have the critical thinking skills to use the Internet alone. Parents of children in this age group need to supervise their on-line visits, use kid-friendly search engines or ones with parental controls only and encourage critical thinking skills. From age seven to 12, children become more confident about going online and begin to look outside the home for socialization and information. Their favorite online activities are playing and downloading games, music and videos from YouTube. They may visit virtual environments like Neopets, Club Penguin or Togetherville. Unfortunately, the escalating online usage means they are just a click away from inappropriate material and their usage needs to be monitored closely. Placing computers in open spaces and restricting access to appropriate

sites is an option parents should consider, said Spratt. The same risks teens face offline are enhanced in the online world. From age 12 to 17, the Internet provides teens with unlimited opportunities and choices, many of which have detrimental, even tragic results. Personal information on sites such as Facebook makes it accessible to any number of people, thereby increasing the risk of bullying and predators. Teens with credit card access have the option of making purchases online, and rebellious teens may break the rules and visit sites with scenes of violence, gambling or pornography. Spratt said parents need to start monitoring their children’s Internet usage when they are three or four years old and to keep the lines of communication open up to and during their teenage years. He added parents can’t start setting ground rules when their children are teenagers without already having laid groundwork for Internet usage. “It would be World War II all over again,” he said. While Spratt sees the Internet as a valuable tool, he notes it does present dangers and challenges. He added communicating through texts and other social media can cause serious deficiencies in verbal communication skills. “(For some people) it has created a vacuum of interpersonal relations.” Establishing a family online agreement and setting up computer house rules are ways to help parents to monitor online usage.

WCPS to develop policy regarding sexual orientation By Amelia Naismith Superintendant Larry Jacobs and Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS) are creating a Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity administration procedure for the division. Jacobs says it’s something happening not only on WCPS, but across the province, and the procedure isn’t just a school idea but something communities are supporting. “We have to be very accepting of students’ sexual orientation . . . especially from schools,” said Jacobs. He feels schools should be a bully and abuse free environment and want the procedure to diverge those behaviors. “These people have the right to their sexual orientation,” said Jacobs. He believes the students’ choices must not only be tolerated but also openly supported. Late last year outrage and controversy surrounded Pembina
Hills Regional School Division trustee Dale Schaffrick after he made remarks at Alberta School Board Association’s fall meeting that gay students should be less open about their sexuality. He later apologized for his comments. “I think there’s an urgency throughout society,” said Jacobs. He knows cyber bullying and social media have made it easier for bullies to harass others from a more protected and anonymous environment. Jacobs referred to British Columbia teen Amanda Todd who also committed suicide late

last year after being sexually harassed, bullied and abused for many years. He says kids will bully each other and sexual orientation is an easy opening. This is what he wants to protect the students from. “I look around to see how other people are building it (the procedure).” Jacobs is also looking to the minister and his own board’s feelings on the matter. He hopes to have the policy created by June in time for the new school year but it may take until the fall to be completed.

A Rimbey area bowler showed he is a true sportsman, on and off the bowling lanes. Ty Frank set a new Canadian record for the Interprovincial 5-pin Bowling Nationals held in Charlottetown, PEI recently. He also won the most sportsmanlike bowler award. With his winnings, the generous young man purchased two carts full of food for the Charlottetown Food Bank. His mom, Susan said she is not surprised. “I would be surprised if he didn’t,” she said. “That’s just who he is. He gives.” Frank scored 369 pins over average for the eight game round robin, beating the previous high by 96 pins to achieve the new record. His 1,865 total also was high scratch pinfall for the tournament. Frank’s team coached by Donna Smith, consisting of himself, Connor Odenbach, Julia Stadelman and Terra Nystrom won bronze at the Nationals. Frank is excited about his win and seemed especially pleased with his most sportsmanlike trophy. “That is the first one they have every given out,” he said. He is also pleased about the bronze medal, but said the team could have got gold. “I had one bad game in the final,” he said. “That kept us out of the gold.” Frank is humble about his bowling skills. “Some days I’m very good, some days I’m not,” he said.

Hey Everyone. It was a busy month of April. Our 4-H members are busy getting their calves ready for the big show in May. Everyone is welcome to come to watch our Show and Sale on May 12 and 13. On Sunday, May 12 we will weigh our calves at the Rimbey Auction Mart. Our show starts at 12:30pm. We will only compete against our own club. On Monday, May 13, the day starts with team grooming at 9 a.m. Next is our Cleaver Kid show at 11 a.m. That is when kids between the ages 6-8 years old come out into the ring and show baby calves born in the year 2013. They are super cute out there. The Interclub show starts at 12:30, supper is at 5 p.m. and our sale starts at 7 p.m. After the sale there is a water fight out in the field beside the Rimbey Agriplex. It is awesome, aside from getting soaked. You always have to remember to bring extra clothes or your parents won’t let you in the vehicle. Our latest meeting was on April 15. We talked about our minishow and clipping day. Our clipping day was on April 27 at 10 a.m. Can you believe it? 10 a.m. and our calves have to be clean and pretty so we can clip them. Our minishow is on May 4 at 1 p.m. at Ponderosa. We will have pictures taken of our calves and us and the whole club together. Everyone is excited for show day but at the same time nervous. Don’t let the 4-H members calm faces fool you. The next couple of weeks are going to be busy. Good luck to everyone in all the 4-H Beef Clubs and we’ll see each other soon.

Costing more to live in Bentley By June Norvila It will cost a little more to live in Bentley in the coming years. At a town council meeting March 12, a bylaw setting the fees for water and sewer collection to commence May 1 was passed. There is a need to cover costs of upgrades and expansions. The water rate for 2013 will go up from $34.89 to $41.90 for the first 27 cubic meters or portion thereof (a 20-per-cent increase) and there will be a steady increase of approximately five-per-cent each year starting from the 2013 rate and increasing each year for 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. That translates into $44 on May 1, 2014 $46.20 in 2015, $48.50 in 2016 and $50.95 in 2017 — an approximate increase of 45 percent above the 2012 rate. The charges for water used over the first 27 cubic meters will also see the same type of increase. It will increase from 59 cents per additional cubic metre in 2012 to 90 cents effective May 1, 2013 and continue to rise at approximately five per cent each year making the charge 95 cents per additional cubic metre in 2014, $1 in 2015, $1.05 in 2016, and $1.10 in 2017. Sewer rates will also increase the same way. Effective May 1, 2013, sewer rates are $33.40 per residential or business unit and $100.20 per institutional unit, up about 20 per cent from the $26.73 per residential or business unit and the $82 per institutional unit in 2012. A steady five-per-cent increase in charges will continue through 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2013 the residential rate is $33.40. In 2017 it will be $40.65. The institutional rate is $100.20 and will become $121.70. Billings are bi-monthly. Town CAO Elizabeth Smart had a different way to keep the charges for town utilities in perspective. “It will (now) cost less than $2 a day for residences for all three (town utilities) — water and sewer and garbage collection,” she says. “Where else can you get that kind of service for less than $2 per day?”
Bulk water and counter sales will see similar increases as well. The rate increases from $33.56 for the first eight cubic metres of water in 2012 to $43.65 effective May 1, 2013, and the additional cubic metre rate over the first eight cubic meters will go from $4.02 in 2012 to $6.85 in 2013 (an approximate increase of 30 per cent) and will continue to increase approximately five per cent for each of 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. The charge per cubic meter for water over the initial eight cubic metres will go from $4.02 or portion thereof in 2012 to $7.95 for 2017. This is billed monthly. The 2013 taxation year mill rates were set at the April 9 regular Bentley town council meeting. The residential and farmland rate went up slightly from 8.98 mills in 2012 to 9.50 mills, and the non-residential rate went from 12.77 to 13.50 mills. The rate to cover the requisition for the Alberta School Foundation Fund decreased ever so slightly to 2.74 from 2.785 mills in 2912 for residential/farmland and from 4.169 mills to 3.88 on non-residential property. The total assessed value of property including residential/farmland, non- residential property and the value of machinery and equipment in Bentley dropped slightly for 2013. The total value went from $99,263,280 to $98,868,430 despite the nonresidential value increasing from $12,574,890 to $13,128,630. For the first time in the town’s history, Bentley residents will see a franchise fee added on to each of their Fortis power bills in 2013. At the Oct. 9, 2012 regular town council meeting, council approved a 10-per-cent electric distribution franchise fee through Fortis Alberta to be levied on Bentley ratepayers for 2013. Fortis will collect the fees and turn them over to the town. This practice has been common for a number of years in many other municipalities but Bentley had historically opted out of the practice.
Bentley Museum Society receives grant By June Norvila The Bentley Museum Society is again the recipient of financial support from the BMO Volunteer Grants Program.

A Tribute to the Lions’ Recycle Depot PROJECT ‘84 27 years
In 1984, the Lions’ Recycle Depot or “Project ‘84” pioneered a recycling service in Rimbey, with the help of Government grant money to seed the project. It was one of the first recycling depots in Alberta and the Committee received the Emerald Award in 1993 for their commitment to an innovative project that protected the environment. For 27 years, many volunteers have sorted, and shipped paper, earning an average of $4, 500 per year that the Lions put right back into the community.
Had these volunteers been paid minimum wage, they would have been paid - $680, 000.00
97,200 volunteer hours Volunteers have put an approximate average of 300 hours per month into sorting and shipping.
9,083 bins Our closest estimates reveal that 9, 083 bins of paper have been shipped out of Project ’84.
$121,500.00 This is the approximate amount of money earned from sales of recycled paper – money that has been put right back into Rimbey and District.
5 Main Auditoriums The volume of paper kept out of the landfill, would fill the main auditorium in the Rimbey Community Centre 5 TIMES!!
To the community of Rimbey for supporting us for 27 years, and to our many volunteers who made our landﬁll a little less cluttered and our town a little more full of the good stuff.

Teen brings home medals in bowling By Treena Mielke A Rimbey-area teen is sporting gold and bronze medals after competing in the Special Olympics earlier this month. Sixteen-year-old Brandon Heerema from Hoadley won a gold medal in the 5-pin bowling competition as an individual bowler. His team won a bronze medal. Heerema, like a true winner, was modest about winning the medals. But words weren’t really needed, anyway. His huge smile said it all. Coach Fiona Martel is proud of Heerema and all the bowlers she coaches who made it to the Special Olympics. “It was very exciting. The looks on their faces were just wonderful.” Martel said prior to the competition, she encouraged the bowlers to have fun and not worry about winning. “Winning was definitely a bonus. And the ones
who didn’t win were so proud of the ones who did.” Heerema bowls in Lacombe at Ambassador Lanes. He has been bowling for about four years and Martel said he is the youngest bowler in the league to go to provincials. She enjoys coaching the bowlers but adds she does not bowl, herself. “They love to play against me, because they can beat me with their eyes closed,” she said with a laugh. Events in the Special Olympics included 5-pin bowling, basketball and swimming. Opening ceremonies were held at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School on April 19 and featured the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The games wrapped up on April 21 with medal presentations. Athletes came from communities stretching north to the Northwest Territories, south to Lethbridge, east to Lloydminster and west to Rocky Mountain House.

In Memoriam Harvey Allan Haarstad August 1, 1927 - May 12, 2012 Dad - if I had known one year ago that I was never to see you again, my last “I love you” would have been shouted and my last hug would have been tighter. Each day, I miss our talks and our times together. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would have spent more time with you. I know someone needed you more than me and I am glad that once again you are together with Mom. This does not ease the pain each day, but gives peace in my heart knowing that you are now happy. I still miss your special smile and your twinkling eyes and always will. I’m sending a hug and an “I love you” to you each and every day. Miss you so much - love from Lynda and Garry, Everett and Sherry, Ken and Leslie, Larry and Donna and all your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
