Council rescinds library motion By Treena Mielke

A motion that greased the wheels of controversy in Rimbey for several months has been rescinded by council. At its regular meeting June 10 — which lasted less than 10 minutes — council unanimously agreed to rescind a motion made by Coun. Paul Payson earlier this year to sell the town administration building to the Rimbey Municipal Library Board for $1. The motion included the condition the town have first right of refusal for $1 if the library board decided to sell the building. The decision came on the heels of a non-binding public vote asking residents if they agreed the library should expand into the existing municipal building resulting in the town office relocating to the Provincial Building. Out of 1,800 eligible voters, 625 (35 per cent) cast ballots with the majority (361) against the proposal, and 264 in support. The results became official four days after the June 3 vote. There was no discussion at the council table prior to the motion made by Payson to resend his original motion and the council chamber was almost empty with only two people attendance. The almost deserted council chamber was a direct contrast to recent prior meetings, when the gallery was full of concerned citizens. The plebiscite, manned by town employees Kathy Blakely and Melissa Beebe, cost the town around $1,500 and included the printing of the ballots and manhours. Bench approval A request for permission to place a park bench in the West Haven Cemetery has been given the goahead by council. A bench could be placed in West Haven in memory of Balzer Heisler, who was interred in the cemetery on the west side of the columbarium in March 2012. The bench is to be placed on the west side, facing the columbarium. Council complied with the recommendations by the cemetery board that the bench would be constructed of either granite or concrete aggregate with specifications to be reviewed by the CAO prior to purchase and that it would be placed in a common area.

Additional construction project for county By Amelia Naismith

Gibson Energy is constructing a new rail loading site in Rimbey to the south of its custom treating terminal. Treena Mielke Photo

Gibsons building rail loading site By Treena Mielke

sion meant trucks transported unprocessed oil into the terminal where the substance was processed to remove the water by using a pressure vessel to heat the oil to allow the water to settle out. The clean oil is then pipelined to Pembina Pipelines, two kilometres southeast of the facility. Separated water is trucked to other sites for disposal. As a result of the conversion, truck traffic from the Gibson Energy terminal doubled to about two trucks an hour. Gibson began midstream services in 1953 when it sold 365 barrels of crude oil on behalf of Anglo American Oils ltd. to the British American Oil Co. Ltd.

A midstream oil and gas company in Rimbey is on the lookout for more employees. Chris Atherley, Rimbey plant manager for Gibson Energy, said up to eight employees could be hired for a rail loading site that could be up and running by Aug. 1 depending on weather conditions. Plans have been in the works for about a year, said Atherley. “We have similar sites in several other locations, but this is a first for Rimbey,” he said. Gibson Energy bought the parcel of land east of Highway 20 in northeast Rimbey from CP Rail for the purpose of constructing the rail loading facility. Company representatives met with town officials before Join Rimbey Regional Synergy beginning construction. Group for its annual open house “They were just checking on regulaand information session. tions,” said CAO Tony Goode. “We went through the hoops with Thursday, June 20th them and gave them a Rimbey Community Centre permit to go ahead and construct.” 5:00 - 9:00 pm Once operational, 5:00 pm BBQ and Open House trucks will hook up to the mobile device so 6:00 pm Presentations cars can be loaded with (regulator and industry) crude oil for shipping.

Ponoka County council is adding another construction project to its fall program, pending available funding. “I think our budget is pretty much committed, depending on the season we’ve got lots of miles to do,” said CAO Charlie Cutforth. Coun. Keith Beebe is hoping to be able to push paving of Range Road 34 from Highway 53 to Township Road 423. The project would cost around $200,000, including fencing, pipeline crossings and agreements. “I think it’s a good plan. We put it on the books we can start moving forward on it,” said Coun. Paul McLauchlin. Cutforth said council could use reserves or Municipal Sustainability Initiative funding for the construction, but neither option was favoured. Reeve Gordon Svenningsen especially didn’t want to commit the MSI money because the future of the funding program is uncertain. Well drilling and gas program uncertainty After an extension of the well drilling tax program for 2013, there is no assurance that the program will continue into 2014. “And that for the last couple years has been about $600,000, so it’s substantial,” said Cutforth. The gas tax rebate grant program

has also come to an end. That money will no longer be available to counties unless it’s replaced with a new program, which Cutforth doesn’t expect to happen. Rimbey Regional Synergy Group Although council decided against Rimbey Synergy Group’s request to appoint a councillor as a representative to the group they, with advance notification, will attend more meetings. “I’m not sure, I mean that’s typically between landowners and industry. But it’s up to council,” said Cutforth. Svenningsen agreed, saying he’s also told synergy groups the meetings are between landowners and energy companies, “But they still would like the County to come and just to see the exchanges, what’s going on.” McLauchlin chairs the Battle Lake Synergy Group and he said sometimes the county of Wetaskiwin attends. ‘They just get pelted. I mean, it’s good to know what’s going on. It does provide the opportunity, it’s a valuable exercise but I think that you’re better to look for events.” Tri Services triathlon Ponoka County council is donating $300 for the Tri Services triathlon for kids, the same amount given last year.

Father’s Day always begs the question of what gift, however humble, to buy the man who bears the worthy title of dad. As a teenager, who had not yet reached her 16th birthday, I didn’t think much of my Treena Mielke dad. He was too old On The Other Side to be cool. All he ever seemed to want to do, was fish. Fishing was fine when I was a kid, but now that I was a teenager, I had bigger fish to fry, so to speak. My dad, wherever he was going, drove far too slowly for me. In fact, when we would be driving down some country road, which was pretty much always, he wanted to go really slow so he could enjoy looking at the flowers that painted the roadside ditches with huge splashes of color. He would point them out to me; Indian Paintbrushes, brown-eyed Susans, wild roses, bluebells and buttercups. Really, how boring, I would think. I would have tuned him out and tuned myself into some rock and roll music, if only we had had a radio in that old ’49 Chev, but of course, we didn’t. Perhaps it was because we had no radio, we sang in the car. My dad sang lots. War songs, Scottish ballots and old westerns. He knew all the words and pretty soon I did too. Even though I was convinced I was much, much smarter than my father, I did think he should be remembered on Father’s Day with some sort of gift, because that’s what people, even teenagers who were wise in unexplained ways such as I, did. So I saved and saved and saved, finally accumulating the grand total of 50 cents. I put it away carefully. But, it turned out that the money never did get spent on a Father’s Day gift because my dad died. He died when the roadside ditches were not yet softened and made splendid by the reckless abandon of delicate pink roses. He died when the air was heavy with the scent of lilacs and dancing green leaves brought life to trees that had been chilled and cold for far too long. I knew my father for barely 15 years, but every year when Father’s Day comes around, I think about him. And how smart he was. He knew a pickle jar filled with a bouquet of fresh green leaves is a classy way to decorate a kitchen. He knew enough to carry his fishing rod with him at all times, and interrupt his workday without question if he should come across a fishing hole with or without promise. He knew enough to slow down and enjoy wild things like flowers and rivers and creeks and sure-footed creatures of the forest that roam free. And, somewhere in his heart, he must have been wise enough to know that he could raise a kid such as me as a single dad, even though I certainly didn’t come with an instruction manual attached. But, I wonder if he had any idea, that many, many years later, that the child who was me would remember driving down country roads with her dad far too slowly, singing those old songs and marveling at the beauty of the flowers, because, after all, we had all the time in the world. And I wonder if he knew, that in the short, short time he was with me, he taught me so much. I hope so!

Mandela made magic work in South Africa As I write this, Nelson Mandela is still with us. But this is his fourth hospitalization in six months, and the prognosis for 94-year-old men with persistent lung infections is not good. How will South Africa do without him? Wrong question, actually. In practice, South Africa has been doing without him for more than a decade already — but psychologically, it is just now getting to grips with the reality that he will soon be gone entirely. For all its many faults and failures, post-apartheid South Africa is a miracle that few expected to happen. Although Mandela retired from the presidency in 1999, he is still seen as the man who made the magic work, and somehow the guarantor that it will go on working. A great many people fear his death will remove that safety net. Just in the past few weeks, however, the tone of the discussion has begun to change. On hearing that Nelson Mandela had been admitted to hospital yet again, Andrew Mlangeni, one of his dearest friends and once a fellow-prisoner on Robben Island, said simply: “It’s time to let him go. The family must release him, so that God may have his own way with him...Once the family releases him, the people of South Africa will follow.” That one comment opened the floodgates, for it had a strong resonance in traditional African culture, which holds that a very sick person cannot die until his family “releases” him. They have to give him “permission” to die, by reassuring him that his loved ones will be fine when he’s gone. So South Africans must now accept they can get along without Nelson Mandela, and then he will be free to go. It’s not that everybody really believes in this tradition, but it frames the conversation in more positive way. People can argue about whether South Africa is doing as well as it should but they can at least agree that Mandela got the country safely through the most dangerous phase of the transition, and that they can carry on with the job of building a just and democratic society without him.

Gwynne Dyer Guest Columnist

Except for President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, of course. Mugabe has always resented the fact Nelson Mugabe is revered as the father of his nation while he himself is seen as a vicious tyrant who has ruined his country. So he used a recent interview on South African television to accuse Mandela of having failed in his duty to South Africa’s black majority: he had been too soft on the whites. “Mandela has gone a bit too far in doing good to the non-black communities, really in some cases at the expense of blacks,” the Zimbabwean dictator said. “That’s being too saintly, too good, too much of a saint.” Nonsense. What Nelson Mandela and his white negotiating partner, F.W. De Klerk, were trying to avoid in the early 1990s was a South African civil war that would have killed millions and lasted for a very long time. The 20 per cent white minority was heavily armed, and they had nowhere else to go. Their families, for the most part, had lived in South Africa for at least a century. Therefore, a settlement that gave South Africa a peaceful, democratic future had to be one in which the whites still had a future. So you either make the kind of deal that Mandela and De Klerk made, in which nobody loses too much, or you submit to a future that would make the current civil war in Syria look like a tea party. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, talking about Mandela’s inevitable death, said recently: “The best memorial to Nelson Mandela would be a democracy that was really up and running: a democracy in which every single person in South Africa knew that they mattered.” That is still some distance away, but Mandela has laid the foundations. He was the right man for the job: a saint who also understood realpolitik. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Drunk driver faces variety of charges In the past two  weeks the Rimbey RCMP responded to 80 calls for service, consisting of child abuse, domestic assaults, thefts, mischiefs and break and enters. A 35-year-old resident of Rimbey was impaired when he crashed into his neighbour’s car while trying to park his truck. The suspect, believing it was the neighbour’s fault for being so inconsiderate as to park legally on the public road in front of his own house, threatened to kill the neighbor. The suspect is facing uttering threats, impaired driving and driving while unauthorized charges. If convicted this will be his fourth impaired driving conviction. Downtown thefts On June 4 a newer blue Ford F150 was used in the attempted theft of an ATM at a local hotel. The same night a repair shop across from the post office was broken into and several chainsaws were stolen. The investigation into these events is ongoing. Lock up your bikes In the past few weeks the RCMP have received several reports of bicycles being stolen. Two suspects have been identified and charges are pending in some of the thefts.

LETTERS TO EDITOR

Reader questions transparency of MP’s colleagues Dear Editor: I am of the belief that Wetaskiwin MP Blaine Calkins’ latest opinion piece is timed in poor taste.  Mr. Calkins has called into question the transparency and accountability of our Crown corporations, with a decided focus on the CBC.  While I most certainly agree with the idea all entities that receive funds from Canadian taxpayers should be held to the highest standard of accountability, I must first question the transparency and accountability of Mr. Calkins’ own Conservative col-

leagues. Recently, the Conservative party has been receiving a well-deserved lashing from the media and public due to the colossal mismanagement of taxpayers’ dollars in relation to the senate scandal. I find it absolutely incomprehensible that Mr. Calkins would spend his time berating crown corporations when, instead, he should be writing to us explaining and apologizing as to how his government has allowed such fiscal negligence. Not even a month before the Senate scandal was exposed, the Con-

Not too pleased in Rimbey Dear Editor: A week before the library referendum vote, I decided to take a trip down to the Provincial Building to see for myself what the facilities might be like for the new town office, should it be given the green light to move. Here is what I found: spacious parking lot, lovely foyer with cathedral ceiling fully finished and tastefully decorated, wheel chair ramps and an elevator for complete building access, large three-stall ladies’ washroom, identical to any you would find in a busy office building in Red Deer, for the proposed office space, large pleasant banks of windows on the East and West sides allowing natural sunlight to light up the space, plenty of room that, to the inexperienced eye anyway, looked to be twice

the space of the present town office And, according to the caretaker who gave me the tour, this area of the Provincial building has been empty for years. As a 35-year resident of Rimbey who moved here just as the Provincial Building was being constructed, I came away with an overwhelming impression that it was suitable to recycle as a town office, and that we should have moved there years ago when the provincial government downsized services in Rimbey and left under-used office space behind. I believe all these public buildings belong to the people of Rimbey, whether they were built by the province or by the municipality. It would have been sensible to make use of what we collectively own. Furthermore, if the library moves out of its small 33nd Annual Pre-Harvest dysfunctionally space, it will leave another empty hole that we Machinery Consignment still have to support on Auction our tax dollar. So what is there to August 9, 2013 be pleased about? PerRimbey, Alberta sonally, I feel it is hard to find anything to celebrate with what has happened here. Elaine Moore

servative party’s toes were once again held to the fire, as it was revealed by Auditor General Michael Ferguson that $3.1 billion had somehow vanished under the Public Security and Anti-Terrorism Initiative. How is this transparent? How is this being accountable to taxpayers? I won’t waste your time discussing the F-35 procurement fiasco. Or “Gazebo” Tony Clement.  Or the $100 million spent on the self-promoting Economic Action Plan ads. Or Bev “OJ” Oda. Or Peter MacKay’s helicopter holiday. Or the resignation of Conservative MP Brent Rathgeber (who cited a lack of progress on open government). Or the $1 billion spent on G20 security in Toronto. Or the omnibus crime bill. Or the largest federal deficit ever.

Calkins stigmatizing mental illness issue Dear editor: By playing politics with mental illness, Wetaskiwin MP Blaine Calkins and the Conservative Party are not only stigmatizing those living with mental health issues, they are making our streets less safe. First, some context. Our justice system provides a third option for those who, at the time of the act, were too sick to understand what they did was wrong — people who are deemed “not criminally responsible.” These individuals are incarcerated in a jail with psychiatric services. Before they can rejoin society their case is considered by special board that is better equipped than a regular court to determine their treatment and the level of danger they pose. The Conservatives are trying to mislead the public into thinking this system is broken. In fact, the government’s own research shows that its success rate is high — offenders have drastically lower rates of reoffending than in mainstream correction systems. Yet under the Conservatives’ Bill C-54, one serious offence would brand someone as liable to repeatoffend or present a greater risk to society — based on no evidence and going against decades of science and myth busting about mental illness. This will force them into mainstream prison, from which they will almost certainly emerge far more dangerous and likely to reoffend. The Conservatives argue that Bill C-54 is about the rights of victims. If these changes were only about advancing the rights of victims, the Liberal party would support them. But Bill C-54 goes well beyond that and stigmatizes the mentally ill, and offends basic Charter

Dear Editor: The library expansion fiasco was played out to the public as follows: 1. The Rimbey Review announces the town office has been sold to the library for $1. 2. The Rimbey Review publishes MLA Joe Anglin’s statement this is not financially smart and that living space for seniors is of a higher priority. 3. The Rimbey Review gives front page attention to the petition against the library expansion. 4. The Rimbey Review, week after week, publishes the tedious, negative, shortsighted, arrogant views of Dave Karroll. 5. Responding to the negative attention being portrayed in the Rimbey Review, town council decides to put the issue to a vote which is won by a special interest group. I am disappointed in the Rimbey Review, disgusted by Joe Anglin and Dave Karroll, and have no confidence in our cowardly town council, which in the end, served only a special interest group and did nothing to act for the young, working families of this town — the very people who elected them. A once in a lifetime opportunity to expand the library into an ideal location has been lost and this will only cost far more in the future. Russell Bjornson

RS Line Contracting begins work on transmission line By Treena Mielke

A power line construction company hired by AltaLink to work on the controversial $1.5 billion Western Alberta Transmission line has set up shop in town. Edmonton’s RS Line Contracting will bring up to 200 employees to Rimbey and plan to hire more, said owner Mark Forbes. AltaLink spokesperson Peter Brodsky said a portion of the route, which runs north-south approximately 350 kilometres west of Edmonton to an area just east of Calgary, in the Langdon area, will be located about 18 kilometres west of Rimbey. Surveying and staking, brushing and clearing is now being done to prepare for the transmission line. He said once the towers are assembled, helicopters will be brought in, the towers loaded in one piece, and dropped into position. “It’s quite impressive to watch,” he said. Forbes, said his company decided to put an office into Rimbey as it was central to the work being done for AltaLink. “We have been here for two weeks now and will use Rimbey as a base,” he said. “We have begun work on the assembly and foundations.”

Half of the 200 workers employed by RS Line for the project are working in the area now and staying in local hotels and motels. “It is a boon to the economy and will definitely increase business there,” he said. “We have half or more working now. We also plan on hiring more local people — laborers, operators, assemblers and linemen.” Anyone who is looking for work

should stop by the Rimbey office or go on line at www.rsline.ca, he said. In the summer of 2012, the Alberta Utilities Commission held a public hearing in Red Deer to consider AltaLink’s application to construct and operate the Western Alberta Transmission Line. On Dec. 6 of last year the AUC approved the majority of the preferred route submitted by AltaLink.

Although all six of the lovely Rimbey rodeo queen contestants seem worthy of the title, only one will be given the honor. Shelby Bushnell, 20, from Millet, grew up with horses and has been riding since she was a youngster. “I grew up with horses and my family is in rodeo. Being involved in rodeo is a natural for me. It just works.” Bushnell enjoys meeting new people and attending rodeos. She has been involved in 4-H and also spent some time breaking horses before they are sold. Caitlyn Malyk, 17,who lives on a horse farm near Clive, is a Grade 11 student at Lacombe Composite High School. Malyk, who was last year’s Rimbey rodeo princess, is again vying for the title of rodeo queen. “I enjoy the rodeo and I love horses,” she said. “It’s the best way to combine being a girl; riding a horse, being at the rodeo, it’s like heaven.” Malyk believes her talents of being a good rider, a competent public speaker and a friendly, outgoing person will benefit her should be selected as rodeo queen. Kellyn Christensen, 19, from Ponoka, works at the Centennial Centre. She also volunteers in the brain injury unit. Christensen lives on a small acreage and has three horses. She works with her horses regularly, sometimes competing in fun horse shows in the area. When she’s not busy working, volunteering or spending time with her horses, she is busy working on her 1986

Chevy truck. The fact that her mom, Tova Christensen, ran for Ponoka Stampede Queen in 1986 and won Miss Congeniality, prompted Kellyn to follow in her footsteps. “I enjoy the challenge, the teamwork and a chance to promote Rimbey,” she said. Twenty-one-year old Lakia Steeves Brittany Kroening from Millet plans to go to Vermilion Agricultural College to study agricultural business. She works horse shows at Amberlea Meadows near Nisku and is pleased to be part of the grand entry team for the Ponoka Stampede. Kroening was inspired to run by a neighbor, Michelle Williams, who was the Ponoka Stampede Queen in 1993. She sees the rodeo queen as someone who encourages success and represents rodeo in a positive way. “I’m excited to see how the actual rodeo weekend goes,’ she said. Lakia Steeves, 18, from Bluffton, works at Buist Motors and Happy Valley Restaurant in Rimbey. She is at home on a horse having spent time rodeoing and competing in barrel racing and roping. She has even spent time out in the pasture on a horse checking on the cows. Steeves also enjoys going to the mountains for trail rides. “I grew up going to rodeos and I always thought rodeo queens were someone little girls could look up to.” Eighteen-year-old Shelby Hall is enjoying the rodeo queen competition. “It’s exciting to be able to get to know the girls,” she said. Horses were a part of her growing up years. More recently, she worked as a horse trainer. Although she rodeoed as a youngster, a serious illness held her back for a short while. However, Hall plans to get back into it. Her future goals are to go to school for social work and help troubled teens. She has always admired rodeo queens. “Growing up, those were the girls you looked up to,” Hall said. Rimbey Rodeo is July 12 to 14.

Caregivers’ role discussed at Rimbey’s Seniors Fair By Treena Mielke It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out the role of a caregiver. Basically, they give care. But who gives care to the caregiver? That’s where Alberta Caregivers Association comes in.

Debbie Cameron-Laninga, program co-ordinator for the Alberta Caregivers Association spoke at the Seniors Fair in Rimbey recently. During her presentation she talked about her own personal journey as a caregiver. After learning her parents were both terminally ill, she and her husband moved into their home to be

Oldtimers’ reunion plans underway By Treena Mielke Remembering the good old days, sharing laughter, a few tears, and sharing plans for the future will happen at this year’s Rimbey & District Old Timers’ Association’s 58th annual get-together. Anyone who wants to meet old friends, re-live memories, make some new friends and share new experiences is welcome to attend, said Gladys Johnson, president of Rimbey’s Oldtimers Association. “Everyone is welcome,” said Johnson. “I especially want to encourage locals to come. It is a wonderful time and it is open to everyone. A cordial invitation is extended to all to come meet your old friends, make new friends, share stories and enjoy.” Johnson, whose parents Roy and Martha (nee Odenbach) Allison were raised in the area, especially enjoys the reunion because of her strong family roots here. “My grandpa was one of the pioneers and my parents were very faithful attendees.” She noted that last year’s attendance of 250 people had representation from the United States and British Columbia as well as Alberta.

The reunion is June 22 with registration to begin at noon at the Rimbey Community Centre. Lunch will be served from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Door prizes and a short program will be part of the afternoon’s agenda. This year the Rimbey High School’s class of 1963 will be honored and a Rimbey family will be recognized as the historical family. Last year the Allison family was honored. Following the get-together, the Rimbey Drop-In Society will host an evening of entertainment including a roast beef supper and an old-time dance featuring Elmer & Friends. On June 23 a pancake breakfast will be held at Pas ka Poo Park from 7:30 to 11 a.m. The Rimbey and District Old Timer’s Association was formed during Alberta’s Golden Jubilee in 1955. “The foresight of those who pioneered this organization has helped us to maintain strong ties with our past,” said Johnson. “These annual events have been treasured by many and hopefully will continue to do so in years to come.”

WE’RE TALKING ABOUT ACCESS TO INFORMATION & PRIVACY – IN PUBLIC. Albertans have the right to access information, and to have their personal information protected. Help us strike the right balance. The Government of Alberta is holding public consultations as part of its review of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. Don Scott, Associate Minister of Accountability, Transparency & Transformation, will be travelling across the province to meet with Albertans to talk about the legislation.

full time caregivers. After her parents died, the couple, who had been working overseas, decided to stay in Canada. “When I saw the Alberta Caregivers Association was hiring, I was excited to join their team to help other caregivers in their journey,” she said. “Training facilitator, get the word out, big part of my job.” The role of caregiver is defined as someone who cares for a partner with a debilitating illness, or parents who care for a child with a physical or mental illness, or adult children who help elderly parents with household tasks. Someone checking on a neighbour because there is no one else to do the job can also be identified as a caregiver, Cameron-Laninga said. While the role of a caregiver varies, the common denominators remain fairly constant. Dealing with the wants and needs of someone else with little thought or time given to one’s own wants and needs can leave a person feeling like they are on an emotional rollercoaster. Feelings of being on edge, angry, frustrated, resentful ,and then feeling guilty for experiencing those feelings is not uncommon, she said.

Physically challenges, difficult relationships, and financial hardships can also be part of a caregiver’s daily struggles. Providing support to caregivers facing these challenges is what the Alberta Caregivers Association is all about, said Cameron-Laninga. For caregivers who are feeling burned out and need immediate help, she suggested calling 1-877-453-5088. “We’ve got a caregiver advisor who provides one on one support and will help the caregiver find what resources might fit their situation or will just lend a listening ear if that is all that is needed,” she said. The Alberta Caregivers Association also offers a COMPASS workshop that helps caregivers manage guilt, resentment and stress. In Rimbey, this program is available through FCSS. “The FCSS in Rimbey has run our COMPASS workshop this past spring, and are planning to run it again the fall,” said Cameron-Laninga. Caregivers may also check out the Alberta Caregivers web site at www.albertacaregivers.org for more information and forums.

Bullying causes dangerous ripple effect in families By Treena Mielke Darla was a tiny thing, no bigger than a peanut, and often adults mistook her for an innocent child who wouldn’t hurt a flea. They were wrong. Darla was a bully. She bullied kids far bigger than her, kids smaller than her and even her foster mom. She didn’t care. She seemed filled with a desire to lash out, to hurt and to inflict emotional pain on her vic-

tims. Michelle, a foster mom for many years, pondered the question of how to help Darla late at night, long after all her charges were safely tucked into bed and she was sitting alone at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee. She knew from experience almost half the children who came to her were bullies, and she also knew that many of those children had faced a horrific childhood where bullying was an every day fact of life. But this little girl? She shook her head.

A Big Thank You from the West Country Outreach School Council to all who donated cash awards and gifts. You joined in creating an unforgettable evening for all the graduates and students at the West Country Outreach School Graduation and Awards Night. • Suncor • JT Glass • Iola Hall Board • Smith Hardware • Rimbey Medical Clinic • Tirecraft • Side Street Liquor Store • Rimbey Fish and Game • Action Autobody • Ladies’ Auxilliary • Rimbey Lions Club • Super 8 Motel

She seemed so tiny, so innocent. How could she help her? It was Michelle’s custom to have the foster children help her prepare supper and help with the clean up afterwards. She decided to ask Darla to help her in the kitchen the next day. While they were busy chopping carrots and peeling potatoes, she said, “Darla did you know you called me a ‘f---- bitch 57 times yesterday.” “I did?” the girl said, seemingly genuinely surprised. Michelle took the opportunity to point out to her swearing at anyone is rude and unacceptable as is taunting other people with hurtful words just to watch them cry. “But my dad yells and swears at my mom all the time,” she said. “And he yells and swears at us, too, at least he did until she finally reported him for hitting her again and we got put into foster homes” she added more quietly. Helping Darla break her habit of swearing seemed to be only the tip of the iceberg for a child who had lived with bullying her entire life, but Michelle knew she had to start somewhere. She truly believed the words, ‘kids live what they learn’, and she also believed bullies such as Darla need as much love and attention as the child who is being bullied. A new study by researchers at York University and Queen’s University shows children who bully tend to have troubled relationships with parents and friends. These bullies may continue to bully throughout their teens if those

problems are not addressed early. Bullying is a relationship problem and children who bully are using power and aggression to control others. Many children who bully are morally disengaged and lack compassion for those they victimize or built for their actions. Persistent bullying requires an intervention that focuses on the child’s behavior and problem-solving skills and interventions that focus on their relationships with parents and peers. To determine if your child is a bully, think about how other children treat to them. Do they accept instructions from your child? Are they fearful or hesitant around him or her and is your child dismissive about the feelings of others? It is stressful to live with someone who may be a bully, whether it be a child or a partner, but it is a cycle that needs to be stopped. “Talking about it, facing the issue, not hiding it under the rug or pretending it is normal is the only solution. It won’t go away by itself,” said Michelle. “And remember bullying is a learned behavior.” Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse. Students who are experiencing bullying or are concerned they may be a bully themselves need to talk to a trusted adult such as their teacher, their parents or the family/school liaison worker. Adults may contact Neighborhood Place at 403-8434304 or Victim Services at the RCMP office at 403-843-2224.

Bentley Cemetery given facelift By June Norvila Something unprecedented happened at the Bentley Cemetery June 2. The usually restful cemetery came alive with a flurry of activity. Rain clouds threatened to the west and to the south and poured rain but not enough was spit at the cemetery to slow work. A community work bee had been organized and people showed up with push lawn mowers, half a dozen ride-on lawn mowers, weed whackers, chain saws, shovels, rakes, pruners, loppers, half-tons, some trucks with trailers, and some bigger equipment including a tractor with loader and roto-tiller. The entire eastern perimeter chain link fence area was cleaned up of deadfall and old native bush. Donated black dirt was hauled in, some sunken areas leveled, and grass seeded. Headstones were trimmed around and some lifted and levelled. Weeds were picked and grass was mowed and trimmed. Lots of trees and bushes were pruned and removed. Some big overgrown lilac bushes and one old spruce tree more than 50 years old that had faithfully been kept neatly trimmed in a round decorative shape were totally removed, to find the spruce tree was hiding from sight the back of a beautiful headstone. Volunteers picked up limbs, branches, roots, weeds and raked grass, loaded them into their trucks or trailers and hauled them to the south end of the property where they were unloaded by hand and pushed by tractor into the smallest pile possible. The final task for the day, around 3:40 p.m., included removing the old walk-through gateposts at the northwest corner. Future plans include installing a new gate in the now 15-foot gap. It appears to be the first time the Bentley Cem-

etery, run by a volunteer board, has had community volunteers converge in an organized work bee. An estimated 30 people had put in time by the end of the afternoon. There were a number from the Garries, Dickau, and Schneider families and many other individuals to numerous to mention who answered the call to help. Bryce McLachlan came with his 57 HP front wheel drive assist Montana tractor with loader and roto-tiller and did a remarkable job doing the bigger tasks, and wife Carol had a tractor with a bigger mower that covered ground more quickly. Scott Garries had donated black dirt and the hauling of it. The work bee, spearheaded and organized by Pam Hansen, was scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m. but with threatening skies some people showed up as early as 10:15 a.m. to try to get an early start. At 3:30 p.m. some volunteers were still there. Continued on page 16

bertans and provide birthing alternatives for expecting families. “Expanding options for Albertans to access care supports a better health care system for all. Midwifery is a great example of how we’re doing that,” said Health Minister Fred Horne. “I’m delighted to see this agreement signed, and I look forward

to the continued growth of midwifery in Alberta.” A memorandum of understanding between the two groups was negotiated and will remain in effect until March 31, 2015. It will ensure continued funding and support for Alberta’s growing number of midwives.

“Midwives play a crucial role in our health care system, providing primary care and support at one of the most important times in people’s lives,” said Dr. Chris Eagle, president and CEO of Alberta Health Services (AHS). “This agreement will allow midwives to continue their dedicated care for patients, while ensuring that Albertans get the very best care possible.” For Albertans, the Share with your agreement will maintain publicly-funded access community to midwifery services. It will also lead to the formation of a provincial midwifery database that will enable AHS to use the data for planning purposes and improving access.

World’s food challenges increase, humanity must enlarge toolbox As Farm Crops continue to emerge and develop across the Prairies as we get into mid-June, a significant month for growth in the fields. Some areas have been hit by heavy storms that have put an early negative feeling for some fields, most fields are in good condition and growing with the steady sunshine and timely rains. Every inch of rain or extra couple of points on the thermometer makes a difference but how investors view it has been consistently different. Take for example, the production estimate for American corn. In the lead-up to the June 12 USDA world agricultural supply and demand estimate report (aka the WASDE), there

was a one-billion-bushel difference. The government agency said however in the report that average yield will be 156.5 bushels per acre, a decrease of 1.5 from their May estimate. This data, combined with the fact that the USDA left planted corn acres unchanged (very surprising), keeps the 2013-14 crop above 14 billion bushels of production, much higher than what the market was expecting. While the wet weather might have push acres and corresponding yields/production lower, one should remember there is 40 million more acres of corn being planted in the world in 2013-14 versus last year. Combine this with an expected extra 45 million tonnes of wheat be-

Specifically, in addition to the crops here in the Prairies, producBrennan Taylor tion out of major growFarmLead ing areas in Europe and the Black Sea regions is looking good. Russia’s wheat prices have dropped to $250 per tonne FOB from southern ports. This in mind, more than a few in the market believe that the new crop contracts in North America are over-priced and that the market is due for a downside correction. Basically, the bearish sentiment for corn also has negative connotation for wheat as the two are seen as substitutes in the feed market. Case in point, recent international sales have North American grain priced $20-$50/tonne more expensive than the likes of the Black Sea (aka Russia) or South America. A recent joint report from the UN’s FAO and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (O.E.C.D.) suggests that the Asian Supernation will be able to sustain a 98 per cent self-sufficiency rate for grain production/consumption over the next 10 years. However, with China’s pig population expected to rise to almost 550 million head over the next decade, feed imports will continue to remain ultra-important. On this note, China recently approved three new soybean GMO varieties, and one for corn in Argentina’s production line. This is significant because it signals to the market that, while China

is concerned about “safe” food, they’re also concerned about making sure they can get enough to sustain their domestic demand. Let’s keep in mind though, however, that about 88 per cent of U.S. corn and 94 per cent of U.S. soybeans produced in 2012 were genetically modified (per the USDA). As such, Harvard development specialist, Calestrous Juma, says that “as the world’s food challenges increase, so must humanity enlarge its toolbox to include genetic modification and other technologies…”. The debate continues. Brennan Turner is originally from Foam Lake, SK, where his family started farming the land in the 1920s. After completing his degree in economics from Yale University and then playing some pro hockey, Mr. Turner spent some time working in finance before starting FarmLead.com, a risk-free, transparent online grain marketplace. His weekly column is a summary of his free, daily market note, the FarmLead Breakfast Brief. He can be reached via email (b.turner@farmlead.com) or phone (1855-332-7653).

“The big guy is looking down on us and approved,” said Martin Schneider, appointed foreman for the day who had retired in the spring of 2012 after 39 years as the maintenance man. “We were lucky. Aren’t I doing a good job?” he said, all smiles at the amount of help and the enthusiasm of the group. Schneider explained people don’t realize how planting trees can make maintaining the area much harder in the long run with the passage of time, and by planting flowers in the

middle of a plot, a lawn mower can no longer be run down the area to keep the grass trimmed. “Some gravesites have not been attended to for years. That is the family’s responsibility, not that of a maintenance man,” he said. “But in some cases there are no family members left, or they have moved away, and some (families) just don’t do it.” There was mention of possibly another work bee in the fall to finish up what didn’t get done and cleaning up of the western boundary. Serving on the current Bentley Cemetery board are Derek Dickau, who has served for about 23 years, Bob Garries, Bill Garries, and Oran Cabelka.

POLUSHIN

RESTALL

Annie Schofield (Diggle) Polushin of Rimbey, Alberta died peacefully at the age of 92 years on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre ~ Area Three, where she had resided for the past year and a half.

Brian Nilsson Restall of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully, with his family by his side, at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre, Rimbey on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the age of 63 years.

Annie was born in Red Deer, Alberta on March 29, 1921. She was the firstborn to Joe and Ellen Diggle, and an older sister to Peggie and Harry. Annie was raised on the family farm in the Forshee District and attended the Chapel School, the Rimbey High School, and the Calgary Normal School where she trained to be a teacher. One of her early teaching postings was to the Homeglen School where she soon caught the eye of one of the local bachelors, Mike Polushin. Annie accepted his marriage proposal upon his return from overseas duty. They were married at the Anglican Church of the Epiphany in Rimbey on July 17, 1946, and set out to build a family and a farm nearby. Annie will be remembered for her great love of learning, her unfailing capacity for teaching, her monumental interest in the world around her, her unflagging Christian faith, and her unsurpassable grace, integrity and good humour. “Her family is very proud and grateful that she blessed our lives so beautifully.” Annie and Mike raised six children: Connie (Edwin), Mary (Kris), Beth (Hugh), Murray, Margie, and Mark (Deborah). Annie will ever be loved and missed by her children, as well as her grandchildren: Kevin, Darren, Trish, Grant, Vicki, Nicola, Danica, Michael, Philip, Jane, and Angus; and her ten great grandchildren. She will also ever be loved by her sister, Peggie Gibbons; her sisters-in-law, Lorna Diggle and Aileen Polushin; in addition to many nieces, nephews and friends. Annie was predeceased by her parents; her beloved husband, Mike, and her brother, Harry. A Public Memorial Service in Annie’s Honour was held at the Rimbey Christian Reformed Church, Rimbey on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with the Reverend David Holmes of the Rimbey Anglican Church of the Epiphany officiating. Interment followed in the West Haven Cemetery, Rimbey. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Annie’s Memory may be made directly to the Anglican Church of the Epiphany ~ Memorial Fund, Box 199, Rimbey, Alberta T0C 2J0; or to the David Thompson Health Trust, c/o Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre, Box 440, Rimbey, Alberta T0C 2J0.

Brian was born in Raymond, Alberta on February 7, 1950, where he lived with his family until they moved to Picture Butte, Alberta when Brian was 13 years old. He remained in Picture Butte until 1970, then moved to Whitehorse, Yukon to work at Beaver Lumber. It was here that he met and later married Brenda Prette on December 21, 1973. Brian and Brenda relocated to Red Deer in 1976, where their first child, Robyn was born. They then moved to Rimbey where their second child, Matthew was born in 1978. Brian worked at the GM dealership, the Rimbey Seniors Lodge, and was employed with Rimbey Ford at the time of his passing. In 2000, Brian became a grandfather for the first time when his granddaughter, Jada Lynn Stephenson was born, and in 2012 he welcomed his grandson, Brian Carter Restall into the world. Brian will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his beloved wife, Brenda; his son, Matt (Christina) Restall of Airdrie and their son, Carter; and his daughter, Robyn Restall of Rimbey and her daughter, Jada. He will also be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his brother, Bruce (Wendy) Restall of Airdrie; his two sisters, Carolyn (Robert) Pickering of Picture Butte; and Ellen (Dale) Krueger of Red Deer; as well as his sister-in-law, Sharon Spinks of Winnipeg, Manitoba; and two brothers-in-law, Gary (Francine) Prette of Camrose; and Wayne (Mary) Prette of Kleefeld, Manitoba; in addition to numerous nieces, nephews, and many close friends. Brian was predeceased by his parents, Kenneth and Eudora Restall. A Public Memorial Service in Celebration of Brian’s Life was held at the Rimbey Community Centre, Rimbey on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with Mr. Bruce Christensen, host. Cremation took place at the Central Alberta Crematorium, Red Deer.
