Rimbey Agrum one step closer to construction By Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye Construction of the Rimbey Ag Societyâ€™s Agrum is going to start soon. A cheque for $500,000 promised by Ponoka County, was presented to members of the society May 14. Treasurer Shirley Ingram also brought a letter to the county seeking endorsement for a line of credit of $1.8 million for financing at the same level as the Ponoka ag event centre. CAO Charlie Cutforth hopes to help Ingram get the best rate for the society. â€œOur own concern obviously is that weâ€™re getting the best deal we can.â€? Ponoka County is able to endorse ag societies with tax money and he wants to see a second proposal to provide the best rate for the society. Ingram is grateful to the county for the support given so far. She feels the society will need $2.4 to $2.5 million to complete the building and the $500,000 will go immediately to contractors. This brings the countyâ€™s support to a total of $1.7 million as well as hauling dirt. â€œThey are really behind us and want to see this building finished,â€? she said. Ingramâ€™s hope is to have pilings started in the next month as they have just awarded Almita Pilings the contract to start the work. Now the group is working on corporate sponsorship and Ingram hopes they will not need to use all of the line of credit. She is however grateful to have the option as the funds can pay for contractors as some require a certain amount up front. The Rimbey Agriculture Society is also fundraising with $20 raffle tickets with three prizes: two sides of beef, a barbecue and a patio set. Council approved a motion stating Cutforth can write an endorsement letter to the ag society for $1.8 million. The Rimbey Ag Society has been running ag events since 1923, said Ingram and she feels the group has a strong vision of how they would like the building to operate.
Town going kid-friendly By Amelia Naismith Signs promoting family friendly activities and recognizing family friendly businesses are being endorsed and erected by the town. Leanna Evans, program co-ordinator for the early childhood development coalition, attended councilâ€™s May 13 meeting to share her idea and ask for endorsement. Evans has drawn a draft charter of childrenâ€™s rights and is hoping businesses in the community will support the idea and components of the charter. Supporters can put a sign or sticker in their window. â€œMostly itâ€™s just to raise awareness. Weâ€™re not going to police this,â€? said Evans, who explained businesses with the stickers would not be checked to make sure they were following every point on the charter. Evans also wants to see family supported parks in the community and parents playing with rather than just supervising their children. She wants at least six signs near parks with ideas on how parents can better interact with their children. â€œTheyâ€™re ideas, just suggestions to spark the light bulb.â€? Parking restrictions Parking is being restricted along 40th Street and 50th Avenue. RCMP feel parking on the streets needs to be modified due to serious, life-threatening accidents. No parking signs are going to be put in place by town administration to cover the two areas near the intersection and train tracks.

In the absence of public discussion, inter-agency collaboration and hard data proving need, Ponoka town council was right to withhold financial support for the school board’s plan to station a school resource ofGeorge Brown ficer in Ponoka public Off the Record schools. Council, if it had the political will, could easily justify its $30,000 share of the estimated $130,000 it would cost to have a Mountie work more closely with school administration, teachers and students. Municipalities are, after all, ultimately responsible for the safety of everyone within municipal boundaries — residents, motorists, tourists and students. Surely the benefits of crime prevention, protection of property, and the safety of staff and students would be worth the minimal tax increase. Wolf Creek Public Schools has made it clear it wants cops in its schools; has them in Blackfalds and Lacombe, wants one in Ponoka and has Rimbey in its sights. Rimbey has more than enough peace officers to serve its population and Ponoka County has even chipped in to pay for another, so why does the Wolf Creek Public Schools board feel it is necessary to buy an armed school resource officer dedicated to interacting with students at all grade levels? Surely this cannot be a kneejerk reaction to the thwarted Christmastime gun threat at Ponoka Composite High School. The teenidiot never made it to the school grounds. Is it a security issue? A commissionaire and security cameras would be cheaper. Is it to recognize and diffuse student conflicts and deter violence? Hire a bouncer. Is a stronger authority figure needed to set students on the straight and narrow? Give guidance counsellors firearms training. Why haven’t the other school jurisdictions in the county been brought under this school resource officer umbrella? Would more players at the table not reduce the costs to all? Are students in other Christian, Catholic and Hutterite schools not worth protecting?
We want a safe and caring learning environment for our students but do we really need to dedicate an RCMP member to enforce respect, courtesy and tolerance, and to reduce bullying and vandalism? That can’t be achieved in schools today without a police presence? Take away the strap and replace it with a gun? What are FCSS, police and bylaw officers, parent school councils, student councils and church groups already doing to address the issues? What is the community doing to improve parenting skills in at-risk families? What is the community’s plan to develop and implement other intervention and prevention strategies? If cops are needed in schools, why not also in seniors lodges? These vulnerable citizens are just as likely as their grandchildren to be the victims of theft, violence and sexual harassment, or to abuse drugs. When it’s convenient, RCMP dust off their community policing objectives and point to their platitudinous goal to build positive relationships with youths by being positive role models interacting socially with youths, building a mutually trust-
ing, respectful relationship. The RCMP’s dalliance with temperance, the ineffective DARE program, is a proven waste of time and police resources. It makes no difference in the lives of most students exposed to the program so why not divert that cop to more productive pursuits? Police are already involved with youths as sports coaches, church lay ministers and Big Brothers but these school resource officers should be specially trained cop-counsellors who can achieve positive outcomes — not a Mountie yanked off his horse and stuck in a classroom. Would the school resource position be filled with an underperforming, disgruntled or short-time cop? If this cop is dealing with truancy, vandalism, bullying, drug and alcohol use, and cafeteria food fights, will we not see more students processed through the courts than through detention? School trustees are walking a fine line with a position that combines the roles of coach, counsellor and cop. It may be that we have to resign ourselves to cops in schools, but by not convincing town council and the community of the need, in this case, the school board hasn’t done its homework.
Break needed for politicians to discover reality Out of touch is an apt description of Progressive Conservative politicians sitting under the dome of the Alberta Legislature. Perhaps that’s why they’re trying to rush through “so much important business in all night sessions” as Alberta Liberal House Leader Laurie Blakeman charged last week. “Why does the government choose to do this?” she asked. “They want to get out of town and leave the scandals behind. It is part of their pattern of saving important legislation until the end of session and then letting opposition work all night while government sits and grumbles.” Yes, maybe it’s a good idea to let those people get away from the legislature and back into the real world then they’d hear the grumbling of common folk who live closer to the land and closer to reality. We were astounded by revelations the premier’s office has paid more than $2 million in severance for former employees over the past three years, with $585,000 paid out since the April 2012 provincial election. Eighteen employees have left since Alison Redford became Progressive Conservative party leader in October 2011.
Steve Dills Sylvan Lake News Guest Columnist
In our world the only time severance is paid is when you want to get rid of someone. And there better be extremely good reasons for taking such drastic action. We agree there needs to be an answer to Liberal Leader Raj Sherman’s question: “Is the premier hiring bad employees, or is she a bad boss, to have such high turnover in the office?” This is particularly important since every facet of government spending is being curtailed — it’s as if we’re in disaster mode. We think, however, this is just another manufactured crisis to move toward a particular ideology. Noting severances in the last year cost more than twice what it would take to save the Music Enrichment Program at Victoria School of Arts in Edmonton, Sherman asked in the legislature, “Premier, why are golden handshakes for former staffers more important to your government than this popular and
valuable music program — and other programs important to Albertans?” A “time out” is certainly warranted for this government as more and more life-impacting decisions are being made daily, affecting thousands and thousands of our friends and neighbours, particularly the most vulnerable. Then, with Conservative politicians out in the hustings, talking to the common folk, perhaps the consternation that’s percolating would rise to the top and spill over into some no-nonsense conversations about how we can improve our province — instead of decimating it. Severance payouts at the top level of this government’s political arm should be the warning sign that all is not good in Alberta. They should signal the need for change — either in the leader or in a ruling party that’s been around too long. The time is approaching quickly. We urge residents, opposition politicians and other interest groups to continue opening government decisions to scrutiny so that we can have informed discussions about change instead of the tight control which has evolved in Canadian politics.

Central town office needed Dear Editor: It seems to me that the real questions of this upcoming referendum is “Are the residents of Rimbey best served by moving the town office to the far west end of town? Is the library best served taking over the present town office building? At the budget presentation meeting in early April, the mayor was asked about the library moving into the unfinished building kitty corner to the town office. The mayor’s response
was that this wouldn’t work because a special concrete had to be used to carry the weight of the books. This was a curious answer because most of the concrete has not yet been poured in that building. In addition, contractors tell me that renovations are much more costly than new construction. Would the library find it cheaper to set up a new building than to renovate the town office to meet their needs? Jay Allen
Students teaching community By Tayne, Rimbey Christian School Students from grades 1 to 9 were teaching people from the community recently. “This is amazing!!” and “How does that work!?” was what you could hear in the hallways of the RCS with the faint background murmurs of the RCS community while they got together to learn. Some of the titles read Squirt!, Wind Tunnel, Photosynthesis, and Distracted Driving. The titles where catchy, bold and interesting.
People who came to the science fair were amazed at the creations of the students such as walking a balloon one metre, driving distracted, spraying water with low pressure and a barometer. The main idea of this science fair was to have fun, get together and learn new things. Sometimes it was not the student teaching the guests; sometimes the guests or other students taught the students. Some students started off scared because it was their first science fair but as the crowd grew larger they got more confident.

After looking at this issue, the Town has proposed selling the existing Municipal Building to the Library Board for $1.00 and moving Town administrative staff to premises in the Provincial Building.

Concerns with Cutting Edge tire recycling There have been some calls from concerned taxpayers of the Cutting Edge tire recyclers north of Ponoka. The existing shredding plant has recently changed ownership and signed a new contract with Suncor Energy to recycle the company’s large loader tires, explained Cutforth. “The problem is it takes them more than an hour to do one tire.” However for the first time since the company’s inception they are recycling more product than they are bringing in and he feels that is a positive indication the issues are being dealt with. Fire Chief Ted Dillon has also been in consultation with the company and they are working with Dillon to ensure his recommendations are adhered to. “They do have plans for expansion and those plans haven’t changed. I think ultimately it will be fine,” said Cutforth. Cancellation of taxes Councillors approved the cancellation of $400 of taxes on a property on SE 19-42-25-W4. The owner recently subdivided the property and has been reassessed however no changes have been made to the property yet, explained Cutforth. “When there is a new owner then those taxes kick in,” he added. Weed inspectors Council has approved the appointment of four weed inspectors: Kelsie Reed, Wendy Smith, Jessica Sperber and Blair Mulder. Highway corridor study Cutforth updated councillors of a Highway 2 corridor study commissioned during budget deliberations. Bob Riddett has been contracted to conduct the study. Cutforth anticipates there will be some public hearings on the matter. Whelp Brook Ponoka County is collaborating with Lacombe County on a Whelp Brook – Wolf Creek Drainage Study. Councillors are asked to appoint Lacombe County to participate in the study as well as have Lacombe County administer the study. Ponoka County is contributing 10 per cent of the cost. Wolf Creek School Division Ponoka County agreed to an election contract with WCPS polling stations. The county has done this for the last few years and Cutforth does not see any issue with working with the school division. “They run their own returning officer but we use our common poll clerks…We’re doing that anyways.” Since the completion of the subdivision on 4928 - 53rd Avenue, Red Deer Crestomere School property for a machine shed, For your personal a sales agreement must be signed to transfer the consultation sale of the property.

becomes sort of their private campground.” Some buyers have considered building a cabin on the property and this creates mixed use. “We’ve expressed some concern over that,” added Cutforth. Council would have to create a new bylaw before being able to make a decision on the request and Cutforth has received some questions from the County Coun. County of Wetaskiwin Paul McLauchlin over the how they are managing these issues. “Failing that he would like to have it considered for lake resort…That I think is more appropriate.” Creating a mixed use bylaw would cause problems for the county later on, says McLauchlin. “We’ll be judged harshly in the future for mixed land-use.” Setting the zone and letting developers deal with that is a better option, said Coun. George Verheire. “Are we moving in the real estate business or what?” There is other proposed development in the area and that would create some confusion for future residents. Cutforth’s recommendation to councillors was to allow Polson to re-apply under one zone as lake resort. “I think it would be less, certainly less complicat-

Official complaint made to minister By Amelia Naismith
Buist helps out: Jody Bramfield, principal of Rimbey Elementary School, received 10 hockey helmets from Mike Steiner, business manager for Buist Motor Products Ltd. The helmets were purchased through the proceeds from a chili cook off held at Buist Motor Products in February. Bramfield said the helmets are appreciated and much needed at the school.

An official complaint has been lodged against Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson, members of town council and Rimbey Municipal Library’s board regarding a brochure created by the library and mailed as a stuffer into the town’s utility bill. Mather Jaycox sent the formal complaint to Dough Griffiths, minister of municipal affairs, on May 13 and attended the council meeting that evening to state his discontent. Jaycox has alleged the town, by distributing the brochure through the post, has violated the Local Authorities Election Act. “He thinks it’s contrary to the election act but it’s not,” said CAO Tony Goode. Goode had the complaint sent to the town’s lawyer, who says Jaycox misanalysed the situation and his complaint is invalid. From the minister, Jaycox is looking for: the June 3 public vote on the library expansion and relocation of the town office suspended; “an immediate investigation into the misappropriations of the library’s funds in contradiction to the mandate and constitution of the Rimbey town library.” Jaycox also wants, if elected officials are deemed guilty of violations, those named to be ineligible seek office for two general elections. Jaycox says an guilty verdict for offence under this act carries a liability of a fine of $500 or more and/or imprisonment of a term no more than six months. “Imprisonment and fines are not being sought as a result of my complaint, however, this should not preclude any appropriate penalty upon the findings of an investigation.” Jaycox feels, because the library was able to use town forces send out their mailer, anybody else also wishing to make a statement should have had the opportunity to do so. “Where it comes down to for me is just wanting to know things are done above board and that the people of Rimbey are being listened to. And from where I’m sitting they haven’t been,” said Jaycox.
Along with attending council’s meeting and filing a formal complaint, Jaycox also spoke with Ibbotson over the phone regarding the situation. “I’m not a political activist in any way shape or form. I’m one of these people: I’d just as soon sit on the back bench, keep my mouth shut and be quiet. But I’m also one that when I see things that I don’t feel are right I will stand up and be counted,” explained Jaycox. “As you said we’ve had a conversation and I’ve expressed my opinion. I don’t feel I’ve done anything wrong. We do it for other organizations, we did it for them, they asked,” said Ibbotson. Goode doesn’t feel the complaint will have any impact of the town. “If the ministry wants to call we’ll talk to them.” After a petition regarding the library was dismissed because is didn’t meet legal requirements council decided to hold a public vote June 3. The vote is nonbinding but council has declared it will follow the consensus of the vote.
Highway re-alignment cut from provincial budget
Paving of the Highway 12 re-alignment around Gull Lake and Bentley won’t be happening anytime soon. It’s not even on the province’s three-year plan. Grading, however, is nearing completion, said Mike Damberger, Alberta Transportation’s regional director for the central region. “We split it into two projects so we’re going to be half finished for a while,” he told Lacombe County councillors recently. “Base paving is not on the three-year program. We need to get it back in there.” Damberger admitted completion of the Highway 12 project “is a high priority for us. We don’t like to start things and not finishing them. “It’s not like we chose another project over Highway 12, we don’t have any capital projects,” he said of the central region.

Second Hot Air Affair hits light turbulence By Amelia Naismith Rimbey’s Hot Air Affair May 10 to 12 hit a bit of turbulence when three of the five balloon shows were canceled due to high winds. “We can’t control the weather. The weather definitely does cause a stream down and a domino effect for a few things for us,” said Lynn Johnson, co-ordinator of the second annual. Even when the wind seemed calm, Johnson says that’s just the surface wind and it could be stronger higher up where the balloons would fly. A challenge was letting the public know whether the balloons would lift off as scheduled. “It’s really hard to let the public know because sometimes we don’t know (until) min-
utes before they’re going to fly. It’s something we’re looking at in the future, how to better communicate with the public,” said Johnson. However, being grounded didn’t stop the pilots from appreciating their time in town. “I think it went really well, the pilots all seemed really happy. When the pilots were able to go up, they had really good flights,” said Johnson. Richard Clarke and Brant Leatherdale piloted balloons in the show last year and were excited to come back. “It’s a good community, good land, the hotel was good. Everyone went away with happy faces,” said Clarke. One of Clarke’s favorite aspects of the event is interacting with spectators. He began piloting balloons 20 years ago because he was intrigued how something
could go up and down with no motor, but it was the social aspect that kept him involved. “It was fun. And the people, it’s a really social community of a bunch of friends.” Despite the weather grounding many of the flights, the pilots worked hard to give a good trip to those who were lucky enough to make their ride. The flights lasted more than a half hour. Hot air balloons burn a litre of propane per minute, and according to Clarke an average flight lasts 45 minutes to one hour. Before each flight, the pilots have to test the winds and at 5:05 a.m. each morning the weather was also checked. “You check the weather to make sure nothing’s coming into the area,” explained Leatherdale. Next, the pibal — a small helium balloon
— is sent up. “We send up this small balloon as an imitation of what we’re going to do,” said Clarke. Once in the air, there’s a special process to flying the balloon. “The process is very much like a fixed-wing plane,” said Leatherdale. “Technically it’s very easy, you’re just changing the density of the air inside. In reality it takes a lot of experience to get that finesse,” Clarke added. In Alberta, because of the long winters — although the winds in January are some of the best for balloons, according to Clarke — high winds and weather that changes quickly, ballooning season is only five months. In that time pilots may get in 100 flights. Clarke says in Albuquerque, N. M. balloons can fly up to 300 days out of the year.

Jackie Stratton. Vaartstra increased the expo’s registration by visiting Ponoka’s trade fair to gather business cards, inviting every vendor from last year back, and phoning every person she thought would be interested. Early advertising also played a part. Rimbey Expo 2012 had about 700 visitors and this year the goal was higher. “We’re actually hoping for anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000,” said Vaartstra. “They did it last year and it was such as hit,” said Vaartstra. “We’ve got everything from cars to banks to construction. We’ve got the whole gamut for housing.” Because of last year’s success, the expo was managed on the same format. “I don’t think there were a lot of changes made. There were more ideas added, we liked everything form last year,” said Vaartstra. Stratton says the trade show and the support it brings is vital to Rimbey. “If you’re not growing you’re dying.

Expectations for the Rimbey Expo grew from last year as the number of booths and foot traffic increased sharply.

COMMUNITY Groundbreaking video education in Wolf Creek Submitted Wolf Creek Public Schools is the first Canadian school division to take advantage of MediaCore, a groundbreaking cloud-based video education platform. There are a growing number of cloud-based education services but it is difficult for Canadian schools to access them. Public schools in Canada are required to ensure that all of their user data is hosted securely within the country. However, many of the new cloudbased offerings store user-data in the US. “We are increasingly identifying online services that could provide valuable support around teaching and learning,” explained Mark McWhinnie, an assistant superintendent at Wolf Creek Public Schools. “During this process we have found that when we speak to various companies, they are often unable to provide a hosted service within Canada to meet our obligations around privacy legislation. This can often be a real barrier to innovation and development and it’s a common issue faced by school boards across the country.” MediaCore’s K-12 service is cloud-based so it was a priority to address this issue and ensure Canadian schools could access the service. “As a Canadian company it was really important to us that we were able to offer a comprehensive service to schools in Canada,” Stuart Bowness, CEO of MediaCore. “Canadian Cloud means schools across the country can now use MediaCore to manage, organise and share videos securely.” Wolf Creek Public Schools has already uploaded more than 400 videos. “Stakeholders in Wolf Creek Public Schools value the on-going educational partnership that we have with MediaCore,” McWhinnie. “Their receptive and collaborative approach allows us to work together on providing a large number of rich curriculum content resources for our students, staff and parents.”

Racers chase health care advancements By Amelia Naismith
The race for enhanced health care has reached Rimbey. May 12 marked the first Rimbey Run Around the Zone run/walk fundraiser. “It’s just one event is a series of runs across central Alberta,” said Ashlee Hamblin, development officer with the David Thompson Health Trust. The inaugural run raised $7,500 through race registrations, sponsorships, donations and a silent auction. Donations continued to come in after the race. With 160 participants, Hamblin said the race exceeded everyone’s expectation of 100 racers. “It’s huge. It’s great to see the community com-
ing together and showing how important health care is to them. Alberta Health Services did a good job but having the people stand up is important, Hamblin said. “It’s great when people come together and take health care to the next level.” “It’s events like this that almost bring big city levels of health care to small towns,” she added. Hamblin said the committee is working to identify Rimbey’s greatest health care needs to the proceeds have a direction. She also hopes the race will become an annual event for the town. For those still wanting to be involved, donations can be made through www.rimbeyhealthdonations.com.

And you’re not alone, as you’ll see in A Baseball Story by Richard Torrey. Other kids in the neighborhood listen for the jingly sound of the ice cream truck, but who has time for that? It’s baseball season, and you’ve got to get ready to play. Before the game starts, you’ll need to suit up because all the players wear identical hats and jerseys, which tells everybody that you’re a team. You’ll also put on bumpy shoes called cleats, so you can run like the wind. Once you’re dressed, take a look at yourself in a mirror. You look like a real baseball player. But no real baseball player is without his glove, so don’t forget that. Mmmmm, baseball gloves smell soooo good. All good baseball teams have a coach. Before the game, your coach might remind you that baseball players always have to be ready, so you practice throwing and catching with your teammates. You’ll have to be ready on the field, too, in case you’ll need to catch a ball and get an out. When it’s your turn to bat, you’ll wear a special helmet so you don’t get hurt. Everybody will be watching while you’re batting — even Mom and Dad but if they wave at you, don’t wave back. Baseball players don’t wave; they need to be ready to run as soon as they get a hit. Getting a hit is almost like having a birthday. And when the game is over, you’ll shake hands with the other team. Win or lose, you’ll tell them, “Good game!” because sportsmanship is important and so is having fun. Yep, baseball players have to be ready for that — and a whole lot more. So you’ve got a future Hall of Famer in the house? Your little one truly lives for the words “Play Ball?” Then you’ve absolutely got to have A Baseball Story sitting at home base. This time of year, of course, there could be a hundred books about our favorite summer pastime on the shelves but author Richard Torrey adds something really unusual to his baseball

book. One part of the story here consists of a good narrative that practically begs to be read aloud. The other part of the story is made up of conversation bubbles, so kids can follow along with the things that are said to and by its young hero. It’s almost two tales in one, and I thought that was enormously fun. Older Little Leaguers may get a quick kick out of this book but I really think it’s meant for their younger brothers and sisters. So if your four- to seven-year-old loves to go batty this time of year, A Baseball Story will be outta the park.

Tennis courts safe from land sale By Amelia Naismith Rimbey’s tennis courts are not being sold and the land converted into more condos. This decision came after much discussion and a split vote from council. If the land had been sold to Brix Construction there was a possibility eight to 10 more housing units similar to those surrounding the seniors drop in centre would have been built. This was cause for concern because both the elementary and junior/senior schools are located in the area, which is partially serviced by a widened alley rather than a full road. “My biggest concern is safety,” said Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson. He feels, even with a new access constructed through Kansas Ridge for the housing units, drivers would use the closest access to them as well as park on the street, taking invaluable space. Another concern was for younger students walking to and from school, amid buses and other vehicle traffic. Some parts of roads in the area don’t have sidewalks on either sides. Coun. Scott Ellis said most traffic comes from students attending school and 10 more housing units wouldn’t create more traffic than the roads could reasonably handle. “I’m totally for keeping the land,” said Coun. Gayle Rondeel, who feels selling the land and putting up buildings would have increased the traffic in an area were parking and space is already limited.
The question of whether the tennis courts, which are highly visible, should be moved to another location also arose. If the land sold and the courts moved there was the idea control be given to the school and then would be reconstructed behind the schools. Ellis agreed the reduced visibility would be a worry regarding factors such as vandalism or dangerous situations but he didn’t feel that should stop development in the town. “Is it a good enough reason not to sell?” Rondeel says other construction projects, such as a track, have been on the school’s mind for 20 years and if the courts are given to them the town loses control of when it’s rebuilt. Coun. Paul Payson said just because the town owns the land doesn’t mean they should jump to sell it for more condo development when the market in town is already slow. “I don’t buy the argument there’s a shortage of condos in Rimbey. So why should we sell the land?” “There’s pros and cons to both sides but what’s the benefit to the town?,” asked Coun. Jack Webb. Ellis says the benefits include selling the land, gaining tax revenue and new tennis courts, which CAO Tony Goode said need upgrading. “I don’t think it’s in really bad shape though,” said Ibbotson. He says there’s maintenance needed but the courts are useable. “Even it it’s not being used for tennis it’s being used for some activity,” added Rondeel.
Human remains near Breton Breton RCMP are investigating human remains found May 7 in a rural area near Township Road 503A and Range Road 40 near Breton. The discovery was reported to police by a passerby. The RCMP serious crimes unit and RCMP forensic identification unit are assisting in the investigation.

Harty event opens for Ponoka Stampede By Amelia Naismith The 11th annual Jace Harty Memorial Bull Riding is bursting out of the gate as the opening event of the Ponoka Stampede lineup this year. For 10 years the professional bull riding event was held on its own, honouring Jace Harty and giving back to the community in his name. “This event has been has been very special to so many people, with tremendous support of many individu-
als, sponsors, volunteers and fans,” said event organizer Patrick Lentz. Combining the memorial and the stampede has been in the works informally for the past several years. “Basically we wanted to grow the event,” said Lentz in an interview with Ponoka News. “Certainly we’ve considered it a success for the 10 years we’ve taken to get to this point.” “We had to get to that next level,”
he added. “Our family was very much a part of the process in joining forces with the Ponoka Stampede, and will continue to be involved with the event as it continues to grow,” said Carrie Harty. Lentz knows the Harty name will stay connected to the theme of giving back with the Ponoka Stampede Association fully on board. “We thought it would be something new and fun,” said president Joe Dodds. “We are very honored, proud and humbled by the support of the many sponsors, volunteers & fans over the past 10 years, and are very excited
about the future of the event, and the decision of the Ponoka Stampede Assoc. to annually kick-off the Stampede with this very special PBR event in Jace’s name,” said Harty. The association is putting up an additional $40,000 for the contestants, which matches the amount the memorial has raised for groups within the community over the last 10 years. The event starts at 6:30 on June 24, beginning with the steer riders. After the bull riding a cabaret will be held in the Stagecoach Saloon. This year’s live entertainment is a talented Ponoka boy, Jamie Woodfin.

Bentley auxiliary tea may be last By June Norvila The Bentley Care Centre Auxiliary is like many other volunteer community groups — it needs more members to continue to survive. The auxiliary hosted its annual Florence Nightingale Strawberry Tea at the Bentley Care Centre on May 9 but it could be their last. With membership dwindling — even with support from some members of the ladies Outlet Get-Together Club — it is not enough. The number of mainstay auxiliary members continues to decline. The volunteer group, originally formed in 1926 as the Bentley Community Auxiliary and later the Bentley Hospital Auxiliary, has raised lots of money for projects for the original hospital and now the care centre that are not covered in their usual budget. The club’s mandate is to support the care centre, its residents, and its staff. Their funds helped supply things on a “wish list.” Over the years they have purchased a set of fine English bone china dishes for special functions, a big screen TV, hair salon equipment, helped build an outside deck and enclosure, helped develop an outdoor garden, purchased patio furniture, bought a special electric lift, purchased tablecloths, have provided Christmas dinners for some family members, and continue to give residents special flowers on their birthdays. These are just a very few of the things they have helped supply to the care centre. As major fundraisers in the past, starting in 1993, they had staged 10 highly anticipated yearly evening fashion shows highlighting local models and businesses but it got too big and expensive for the amount of help they had, so the last one was in 2005. They then hosted three successful Robbie Burns nights complete with a full meal in 2007-09 and more recently have put on silent auctions with entertainment. Continued on page 20

Club members move away Continued from page 19 Staunch member and chairperson for many years was Doris Bargholz. Since she died, Willie Rietema has become the acting chairperson.Â Helen Bergesen is the secretary and Doris Leach is the treasurer. Other core members such as Ena Boot have moved away, Chloe Ree can no longer attend regularly, Doris Leach has also now moved away but continues to try to help, and Willie Rietema will also be leaving Bentley this year. That leaves few members to carry on. There are other members who help when they can such as Shannon Bowen, Alexis Skeels and Bonnie Brower but Rietema says they need active members they can count on. Without the help of Get-Together Club members Sandy Noble and Shirley Sawyer and people like Fern Snow, who belong to both clubs, the organization could not have survived this long. Club funds play a very important role in helping supplement the care centre with equipment and patient comfort care items. The auxiliary has also helped at local flu clinics. If you are interested in helping out or finding out more about what the Bentley Care Centre Auxiliary does and when they meet, please contact Willie Rietema at 403-748-3799 or Helen Bergesen at 403-748-2446.

said Cutforth. He feels there is resistance to changes such as taking out trees on a property. Heavy use on these roads is also an issue when farms do not pay commercial taxes for land. Cutforth says the amount is approximately based on the quality of land but on average a quarter of bare land taxes are approximately $300 to $400. Verheire wants to see some changes to the rules of the road or a way to deal with farm taxes when some operations have 800 to 1,000 cows but Cutforth feels that is a difficult job. “It’s going to take some political will to make that change.” With manure spreaders using the roads to manage operations, some neighbours are upset about so much use, added Verheire. He also does not feel requiring a permit will matter to some. “They tell me, ‘There’s nothing you can do about it.’ The other one says, ‘You can go to hell!’” Ponoka County does have legal enforcement options under the Municipal Government Act by requiring a permit if hauling more than three
loads in a day and if haulers don’t get a permit from the county there is some recourse. “Then at least we have some way to make them pay for the repair,” offered Cutforth. “At least then we have some legal enforcement ability.” The intention is not to be “heavyhanded” with farmers but to try and manage road allowance. Cutforth feels once farmers understand the purpose behind the permit then there will be less of an issue. “At least if we know they’re there we can keep a grader in the area,” he added. Oil and gas companies are required to follow the rules of the road and Verheire would like to see same rules apply to farmers. “We’re going to take a little heat for this but it’s a step in the right direction. It’s a start.” Council decided to require manure spreaders to apply for a permit when hauling more than three loads in a day, whether commercial or private operators.

4-Hers raise strong, 4-H Awards top quality beef By Amelia Naismith Despite receiving a few cuts and bruises from working with their cattle children in Rimbey, Bluffton and Winfield 4-H clubs were able to shine for the judges at their recent show and sale. Conformation judge Jared Sherman feels the families of the area, with strong agricultural roots, are one of the reasons the 4-Hers were able to raise the quality cattle they did. “It’s going to be an exceptional set of cattle we’re going to look at.” Sherman was looking to see each animal was well trained, and the pride and keenness of the children was evident. “It’s just really exciting to see the kids,” said fellow judge Nicole Lamb. “I think it’s a good group of kids.” The recent show and sale, which spanned over Mother’s Day, included the club and interclub classes as well as the second annual class of Cleaver Kids who are six to eight-year-olds showing calves. Fourteen Cleaver Kids competed this year. “We’ve got a big three clubs so there’s a lot of calves to sprinkle out this year. We’ve got a lot of community support,” said 4-H leader Dan Skeels. This year’s show wasn’t important and proud for only the Cleaver Kids this is the centennial year for 4-H, making it significant to every contestant. “The really big deal too is it is about the kids and grooming and grooming our future people for agriculture,” said Skeels. “These kids have put a lot of effort into it,

Photo by Amelia Naismith they’ve got a lot of pride ownership,” he added. Along with grooming and showing their animals, the 4-Hers were able to sell them to the highest most supportive bidder. Last year’s average price was $2.10/lb and Skeels believed the prices would increase this year.
The interclub grand Champion steer, owned by Ben Trenson of the Bluffton Club, was purchased by Family Meats in Ponoka for $2.50/lb; and the interclub reserve champion steer, owned by Cheyenne Schwengler of the Winfield Club, was purchased by Rimbey Pharmasave for $2.20/lb.

Ms. Joan Barbara Lunzmann passed away suddenly at her home in Bluffton, Alberta on Monday May 6, 2013 at the age of 52 years.
Robert “Bob” Alois Zitter of Gull Lake, Alberta passed away suddenly at his home on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at the age of 64 years.
Born September 9, 1960 in Armstrong, BC, Joanie was the eldest child of Rudolf and Georgina Lunzmann. She lived in the Yankee Flats / Salmon Arm area with her parents and siblings until 1974, when they moved to the Bluffton area. Joanie attended school in Silver Creek, Salmon Arm and then in Bluffton and Rimbey. Over the years she had worked for Whispering Hope, the Winfield Lodge and most recently at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre.
Bob was born in Klagenfurt, Austria on March 10, 1949, and immigrated to Canada in 1955 with his family. He came to Alberta in the 1970’s, previously living in Montreal and Toronto. Bob met Grace Wright in 1982, and they were united in marriage in December, 1984.
Predeceased by her dad, Rudolf, in 1986, Joanie is survived by her son Gregory and mother Georgina; her brothers Clarence (Dixie), John (Tara) all of Bluffton, her sister Bertha (Lyle) of McBride, BC. She will also be sadly missed by her nieces and nephews: Melody (Pete), Jesse (Kristy), Sasha (Ron), Cory, Cherie, Thomas and Johanna: as well as her great nieces and nephew; Shamra, Claire and Ethan.
Bob is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Grace; his daughter, Sandra (James) and treasured grandchildren, Matthew and Meagan, all of Airdrie; and his daughter, Robyn (Steven) of Red Deer. He is also survived by his brother, Charlie (Sandy) of Ottawa, Ontario; his nieces and nephews; as well as many life-long friends. Bob was predeceased by his father and mother, Karl and Carla Zitter.

In Memoriam In loving memory of George Wade Larsen who passed away 3 years ago on May 20, 2010. If we could have a life time wish a dream that would come true, I pray to God with all my heart for yesterday and you.

We never wanted memories we only wanted you. Always on our minds, forever in our hearts. Love Mom, Dad, Dale, Kim, Brent and families.
