Toxic water advisory for Gull Lake raises concerns and questions By Treena Mielke Alberta Health’s toxic water advisory shutting down Gull Lake has left at least one person somewhat perplexed about the validity of the report stating the lake is contaminated with algae. Alberta Health Services issued the advisory Aug. 21 and residents living near the shores of the lake, as well as visitors, are advised to not drink the water, nor swim or wade in the lake and avoid contact with algae
on the shoreline. Craig MacLeod, president of the Alberta Lake Management Society, who has a summer home at Meridian Beach on Gull Lake, is not convinced the numbers are correct. “There is no evidence of any blooms,” he said. “The water is shining. It is better than ever.” While MacLeod is not ready to swallow the report hook, line and sinker, he is not discrediting Alberta Health, but simply wants more clarification.
“We need to get our head around this, the numbers seem odd as there is no evidence of any blooms on the lake.” But Deena Hinshaw, medical officer of health for the central zone of Alberta Health Services, said the algae in Gull Lake is more than two million cells per ml, 20 times over the acceptable level of 100,000 cells per ml as set out in the Canadian Guidelines for Recreational Water. “The algae blooms don’t have to be on top to cause a problem,” she said. “While
there is no surface blooms, the water is cloudy below the surface.” The extremely high algae count prompted Alberta Health Services to issue the advisory, she said. “It is our duty to provide the information and an advisory. We are not closing the lake, but making recommendations so the public can make safe choices.” Hinshaw expects the advisory to be in effect for the rest of the summer. Continued on page 10

Missing road signs cause safety concerns for county By Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye
came from Tom and Brenda Griffiths to allow for a farmsite separation on Range Road 244 and Township Road 424. The request is to rezone to country residential hobby farm from agricultural. “It’s for the future is what I’m looking at.” The last request was from Clifford Bollinger requesting a 2.6-acre parcel for his son to have home and help with the farm. “It’s a bushed area and would make a bit of clearPonoka County CAO ing at Range Road 11,” Charlie Cutforth said Bollinger. The property is south of Township Road 434. There were no objections. Drainage at Wolf Creek Golf course Last year Wolf Creek Gold Resort approached the county to help rectify an issue that has contributed to flooding on the course. A culvert in Morningside built some time ago has caused flooding issues on the course and Ponoka County has been working to solve the issue. Heavy rains this year have shown flooding still occurs and Cutforth has suggested they build a manhole/ sump to help with the heavy water flows. They would then pump the water into the culvert. “This we hope would resolve it and we should be looking at $30,000 to $40,000,” said Cutforth. Wolf Creek is prepared to pay for the pumping and Coun. Gawney Hinkley wants the manhole built soon.
Theft of road signs Road signs on Highway 53 are regularly going missing, specifically Climax Road and Hoar Road. The issue is causing safety concerns for county crews who have to re-install the signs, says CAO Charlie Cutforth. To deal with the issue, crews will be putting the signs further back, closer to the corner of the property line, rather than close to the road. “The signs won’t be as big and noticeable possibly,” said Cutforth. Land correction A purchase almost five decades ago has caused the county to do some backtracking. The county registered a road plan in 1964 that cut 66 feet off an acreage. This change made the lot approximately 1.3 acres but it should actually show more than two acres. “Technically the county should have cancelled and consolidated the old road at the same time they registered the new,” explained Cutforth. A boundary adjustment was needed on SW 11-4204-5 for Stanley Schumaker who believed the old road was part of the acreage. Councillors approved the purchase by Schumaker of the property for $1 to fix the error. Air brakes use Requests to ban jake brakes on Medicine Lake Road have been turned down by councillors. “They’re (truckers) jaking to make the turn,” explained Cutforth. The concern was if they restrict air brakes on this road then they would have to continue with more restrictions, which would cause difficulties for truckers. Rezoning in the county There were four rezoning requests asked of council and all of them were approved. The first came from Roland and Irene Grutterink off of Range Road 24 and Westlake Road. The reRIMBEY & DISTRICT DROP-IN SOCIETY quest was to rezone three parcels to country residential hobby farm from agricultural. Each of the properties would have access to the PURPOSE: road. There were no objecDiscuss Floor Curling Concerns tions. Request number two PLACE: came from Marrion Owen Rimbey Drop-In and Bill Spies to rezone property off Highway 53 DATE: near Glenfred Road to September 4, 2013 country residence from agricultural. The goal is to TIME: subdivide into three par1:00 pm cels for residences. Road access to Highway 53 should not be an issue. All members are invited to attend “I understand that Althis special meeting berta Transportation has now confirmed that those road accesses are OK,” said Cutforth. The accesses are adjacent to the highway and 30 years of experience Owen has been in discussion with the department. I believe there’s enough space from the highway back.” She is in the process of remediating an old tank site but is unsure of the how long the process will take. The third request
“Get it (the water) out of sight and this will make these people happy.” Sewage treatment at Wolf Creek The golf course has a sewage treatment plant and handles sewage deliveries from county residents. A request from owner/operator Ryan Vold has been sent to the county to assist with upgrades of the plant. “Current hauls average about 300 cubes per month; at this current rate our system is undersized for this flow,” the letter states. If two trucks come at once then there is also lag time for the trucks. “It’s not handling everything that they’re doing now,” said Cutforth. There is no direct cost to the county as users must pay for the disposal of sewage but Ponoka County has to ensure a site for county residents to dump. The total cost for the upgrades is $75,000 and Cutforth recommended they pay for half. Another option available to the county is to use the Town of Ponoka’s treatment plant but a new cell would have to be built to accommodate the product. “A new cell would cost much, much more.” Hinkley was in favour of the plan considering the cost of a new storage cell and council approved the request. Pension plan change The Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP) has audited the county’s pension plan and noted a
slight error. Each employee class must be identified whether they opt-in to the plan. “The change actually is with the (Bluffton) landfill attendants,” explained Cutforth. There are two employees there who opted out of the plan and the county needed to acknowledge that. Election time The county works with Wolf Creek Public School and St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Schools during election time. Polling stations include voting for the school divisions and the county assists with that. Nomination day is Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon, and election day is Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Intersection treatment The intersection of Secondary Highway 771 near Westlake Marina is undergoing some treatment by a developer. Cutforth recommends the county take care of its side of the intersection at the same time. Paying for the project could come out of the cash reserve and paid for next year during budget deliberations. He estimates the cost to the county at $150,000 for the treatment, which was approved by council.

Your municipality needs help; it needs direction, a vision for the future. Do you have what it takes to be a councillor? Do you know someone who does? Your municipality is one of the commuGeorge Brown nity’s largest employOff the Record ers and oldest corporations. With decades of service to local property owners, your municipal council provides residents with a wide selection of services. As in any multi-million dollar corporation, there will be differences of opinion among the board of directors as to the best way of achieving the goals of the shareholders and determining the most efficient operation of the corporation. Municipal council exists for one purpose: to govern. It is accountable to the taxpayers and the community as a whole to see that the corporation achieves its annual and long-term goals such as economic growth, low taxes, sufficient police and fire protection, and maintaining infrastructure. For some, sitting on municipal council is a matter of civic duty; for others it is an opportunity to push a personal agenda, to oust an out-of-control incumbent, or to interfere in the administration of the municipality. It is not council’s job to oversee the day-to-day operations of the corporation — that is the job of the CAO hired by council. The grassroots is fertile ground for the propagation of all sorts of creatures who feel they have “something to offer” or who wish to “give something back to the community” and offer themselves up for election. Beware the axe-grinder or one-issue candidate whose purpose is to sabotage the community agenda for his own political ends. There is a tremendous time commitment attached to being a councillor. In addition to the regular bi-monthly meetings there are daytime and evening committee meetings, special breakfasts to attend and impromptu meetings when you are cornered in the grocery store. Your phone will ring day and night with calls from citizens who insist that you do something about barking dogs, potholes and snow removal downtown. If you have no interest in municipal development plans, land use bylaws, endless transportation studies or pouring over departmental budgets and monthly reports, do the community a favour and keep your nomination papers in your back pocket on Sept. 23, nomination day. If municipal council is in touch with its residents, it enjoys the confidence and support of the community; it reflects the needs and ambitions of the community, contributing to the growth and benefit of the local economy. Councillors must offer visionary leadership that encourages business and residential growth, and which opens the door to new opportunities for success. Do you fit the bill?

Carbon taxes hurt the poor Rumour in the oil patch has it that U.S. President Barack Obama’s price for the Keystone XL pipeline to go ahead is the imposition of a carbon tax. While the oil companies don’t really care — they will make so much off of Keystone that a tax would be a blip — the same can’t be said for the poor and middle classes. For a look at the cost of any new green regulations, let’s look at British Columbia’s carbon tax, “the first in North America.” It is just the kind of fiction that fiction was made for. A report (written by the strongest proponents of the tax) was recently released claiming that the carbon tax on gas — B.C. drivers’ now pay more to fill their tanks than anywhere else in North America — has resulted in less driving and a drop of carbon emissions by 17.4 per cent. But Willis Eschenbach, a reporter for the world’s most viewed climate site, Watts Up With That, now a hall of fame honoree as best science blog on the web, did the number crunching and found that the 17.4-per-cent reduction was based entirely on B.C. residents buying less gas. But while B.C. drivers may be buying less gas in province, trips across the border have sky-rocketed — by 150 per cent — because gas there is one-third cheaper. As for claims the tax is revenue neutral, tell that to the trucker filling up at the most expensive gas pumps in Canada, or the greenhouse operator in Delta paying an extra $35,000 for the privilege of growing food. B.C’s dubious achievement led its premier, Christy Clark, a mistress of green manipulation if there ever was one, to recently announce the rest of Canada must follow her province’s lead, no matter the cost to single parents, young families, working class drivers, and old people needing to heat their homes. For make no mistake about it, it is they who live in fuel poverty and who all too often have to choose between heating and food. And where did the money from the carbon tax go? According to B.C.’s auditor-general, twothirds of funds brokered by the Pacific Carbon Trust went to Encana, the biggest gas company in Canada, and to the Nature Conservancy of Canada, an organization so powerful, it is practically untouchable. No matter both organizations were

going to undertake their carbon projects anyway; they were glad to take the money, which came from schools and hospitals that are mandated to be carbon neutral: a cool million dollars from Vancouver and Surrey area schools alone. This re-distribution of revenue from the poor to the rich, however, pales in comparison to the misery foisted on indigenous peoples in the developing world. Oxfam International documents how more than 22,000 Ugandans were evicted to make way for a carbon offset tree plantation established by a London-based firm called New Forests. There are dozens of such projects, from Africa to India to Norfolk County in Ontario, where the province’s richest farmland is being reforested for carbon capture and credit to benefit the wealthiest in Canada. In 2009, Deloitte Financial warned Australia its Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS), which requires offsets of large emitters, “have already been subject to fraud, misstatement and the involvement of organized crime in the UK and Europe.” Maybe it should be called the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scam. Even Deloitte, however, missed the potential for public sector abuse, which in B.C. is considerable. For tens of thousands of public servants and contract workers, carbon is a gold rush. Taxpayers have contributed to the $100 million endowment enjoyed by the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium at the University of Victoria, the Climate Action Secretariat, LiveSmart BC and hundreds of projects listed in the Annual Climate Neutral Report. We also pay for the Western Climate Initiative busily devising trans-national carbon regulation. Carbon taxes are a catastrophic waste of public money and have created entire elites that will fight to the death to keep their privileges, no matter the damage caused to the vulnerable.

County looks at concerns about Bethany Group By Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye Ponoka County councillors are taking the Bethany Group to task over recent changes in operations at Golden Leisure Lodge in Rimbey.. Coun. Keith Beebe has received complaints from residents that staff cannot buy lunches anymore. They used to be allowed to buy meals for $5 but that has been discontinued. Residents appear concerned over the changes taking place. “It’s not exactly the way you cultivate good morale,” offered CAO Charlie Cutforth. “Maybe it’s time to look at the Bethany Group and get rid of them too,” stated Coun. Gawney Hinkley. “You can give them 30 days without any cost…I would look into Bethany Group very strongly.” Reeve Gord Svenningsen was not privy to these changes and believed only the benefits package was being looked at. “There was no mention of anything like this.”
He is going to speak with Bethany Group to find out what occurred. Bethany was hired to manage Rimoka’s affairs at $85,000, says Hinkley. At the time he did not think that was enough to manage. “We said you guys can’t operate on that. They said, ‘Oh yes we can.’ All of a sudden everything’s going up,” he explained. However, Cutforth says their operation requisition has been raised to just over $90,000. “It’s not obscene.” Other business with the Rimoka Housing Foundation and Bethany group concerned the proposed senior’s building. Ponoka County is hoping to ensure funds for a new building in Rimbey. The county has a commitment for land in the area and Cutforth hopes speaking with the province will help secure funds in the next three years. “We’re urging them (the province) for funding,” says Cutforth. “We’re not trying to do Rimoka’s job for them.”
Council saves on gas and power bills By Treena Mielke The Town of Rimbey has opted to take part in the 2014 ASC Energy Program, expecting to realize savings in next year’s electricity and gas costs. CAO Tony Goode said the town will see cost savings of about $160,000 on gas and electricity bills next year by taking part in the Alberta Municipal Services Corporation’s energy program for the procurement of electricity, natural gas and a green power component. “ASC Energy members who were included in the first round of procurement have seen approximately 40 per cent savings on their energy costs,” Goode said. AMSC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) that pro-
vides aggregated services to member municipalities, their employees, associate and community related and notfor-profit organizations. It was launched in 2001 in response to members’ needs when Alberta deregulated its electric utility industry. The municipalities that have participated in the program have benefited through the cost effective supply of aggregated energy, natural gas, electricity and optional green power. Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson said belonging to the program is an excellent way to garner savings and will benefit the town. “It’s an opportunity to save the $150,000 (or more) and this money can be used for other purposes such as infrastructure and public works, recreation — wherever it is needed.”

Horticulture Show attracts good number of participants By Treena Mielke The Rimbey & District Horticulture and Bench Show offered a potpourri of categories and anyone who dropped by to check out the array of exhibits was not disappointed. The show, held Aug. 17 at the Rimbey Drop In Centre was the culmination of the hard work and talent of more than 600 entrants. “It was a very good show,” said Gail Hood, chairman of the Rimbey & District Horticultural Club. Entrants were down from last year overall, although they were up in the cut flower and potted plant category. They were down in the vegetables and gladiola arrangements. Lilly Ecker won best of show in the handi-

crafts category with her delicate crocheted tablecloth. The tablecloth has butterflies and flowers etched in the crocheted work and is truly a masterpiece. Ecker said it took her more than three weeks to prepare the pattern on graph paper and several weeks to crotchet it. She won a first place ribbon last year with a round crocheted tablecloth. Crocheting and entering handicrafts at fairs is a legacy handed down to her from her late mother, Rose Andrews. Ecker has a picture of her mother with a crocheted bedspread that she won a first place ribbon with in the Bentley show. Lucy Betlamini won best of show in the culinary category that includes baking, canning and cooking. Betlamini, who ran the fair in Winfield for several years, is pleased with her win but doesn’t consider herself a good cook. “I do enjoy canning,” she said. “I always have canned — lots of fruit and I also do beet pickles, bread and butter pickles and picked carrots. My granddaughter came over the other day and asked where those pickled carrots were.” Elsie Giebelhaus won best of show in the vegetable category. She, too, is pleased with her win. “Our garden just went crazy this year. It was very bountiful.” Giebelhaus said her cauliflower grew high but seemed to be all leaves. Finally she tore the outer leaves off and inside was a beautiful cauliflower. “It’s a miracle, really.” Other best of show winners were Diane Handford for photography; Kathy Sarson, herb collection; Holly Schwieger, most points in show, novice; Wayne Spink, best flower arrangement, (men only); Abigail Lamparter, most points in show (children’s category); Christine Hedges, best cut flowers and most points in show, senior; Norman

Council takes over bylaw services for region By Treena Mielke The Town of Rimbey has plans to take over bylaw services for summer villages on Gull Lake and Sylvan Lake and in the process step up its own bylaw presence. CAO Tony Goode said the service in Rimbey would double once the town takes over and the hours of the three bylaw officers will increase from 11 to 22. The town is in the process of securing approval

By Treena Mielke Council has juggled its regular meeting date in October to avoid conflict with the municipal election. The election is Oct. 21 and the previously set council meeting date of Oct. 24 falls prior to the declaration of the official results of the election — at noon on the fourth day following the election. As laid out in the Municipal Government Act, except in a summer village, a council must hold an organizational meeting annually no later than two weeks after the third Monday in October. Council agreed to reschedule the organizational meeting for 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 and schedule the regular council meeting to follow immediately. FCSS board appointment Council approved a request from Peggy Makofka, executive director of the Rimbey FCSS, to appoint Viola Schneider to replace Viola Schneider on the Rimbey FCSS board.

Drunk drivers and drug users on RCMPs hit list This week, the Rimbey RCMP responded to 42 calls for service. Highlights include drugs, impaired drivers, assaults, fraud and other criminal matters. More drunk drivers arrested Rimbey Mounties continue to arrest more drunk drivers in our community. Again, three more highly intoxicated drivers were arrested. On Aug. 17 an alert officer stopped a 49-year-old female, a resident of Bluffton, who shouldn’t have been behind the wheel. She provided breath samples of nearly triple the legal limit and during the investigation she assaulted the arresting officer. The woman has three previous convictions for drunk driving on her criminal record. Charged with impaired driving and assaulting a police officer, the accused will appear in Rimbey court on Oct. 4 to speak to the judge about her actions. Two more men, ages 45 and 60, both from Rimbey, were arrested for drunk driving. In each case, the men lost their vehicles and their licenses and will be required to appear in Rimbey court to deal with their criminal charges. RCMP find meth user, not Leatherface In the early morning hours of Aug. 22 police received a 911 call from a distraught man claiming men were using a chainsaw to cut his house off its foundation. The hysterical man was screaming on the phone like he was reliving the Texas Chain-
saw Massacre. Several officers quickly responded to the scene and found no angry men in the area resembling Paul Bunyan. As the investigation into the matter progressed, it became apparent the alleged victim was high on methamphetamine and having a major episode from the illegal narcotics he had consumed. The 34-year-old drug user was apprehended and dealt with accordingly. Children’s Services was also advised in this case. Rounding up the usual offenders More chronic offenders were arrested last week as police continue to target those in the community who were released from jail with conditions to abide by. Several ne’er-do-wells found their way back to the Crow Bar Motel and a few more are “laying low” knowing they are next to take the Buffalo Cab back to jail. Be safe this hunting season Police investigated numerous complaints of gunshots being fired in rural areas. In most cases, there were no laws broken as hunters were simply sighting in their firearms getting ready for the upcoming hunting season. In one case, tree stands and game cameras were seized from a property by police since no one had permission to hunt there. As fall quickly approaches, please ensure you have permission to access any land you wish to hunt on and leave gates as you found them. If you are

planning an adventure into the woods, please let a friend or loved one know where you are going and when you plan to return. Every year, police receive a call that “Elmer J. Fudd” did not come back from his hunting trip. When the question is asked by police, “Where was he going?” Often the response is, “His secret hunting spot.”

Boys and Girls Club gets green light from council By Treena Mielke
“I don’t expect to see a lot (of participation) right off the bat. But part of my job is providing these opportunities no matter how many people show up. I’m positive this is gong to take off.” Mayor Sheldon Ibbotson praised Stenstrom for his initiative, noting he was following the recommendations set out in the recreation master plan. “It’s a direction that’s been identified,” he said. Stenstrom said the next step will be to formalize the agreement between The Boys and Girls Club and the town. “We need to determine which facilities can be used by the club free of charge as well as clarify other grey areas such as which specific programs will be offered. Down the road our goal is to provide every child and youth here in Rimbey with something to do after school five days a week.” Letters of support for the youth club included in the council package came from Peggy Makofka, executive director Rimbey FCSS; Leanne Evans, program co-ordinator for Rimbey Neighbourhood Place; and Janet Stout from the Blindman youth Action Society. In her letter, Makofka said youth programs such as the Boys and Girls Club have been a dream of the community for many years.
More youth related programs, a teen drop in centre and out-of-school care could soon be happening in Rimbey thanks to council’s decision to lend its financial support to a Boys and Girls Club. At its Aug. 19 meeting, council gave the green light to a proposal by Peter Stenstrom, Rimbey’s director of community services, to enter into an agreement with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wolf Creek. The club would provide a satellite program with the national Boys and Girls Club of Canada branding. Council would contribute $25,000 per year for five years to help keep the program afloat and allow the club the use of specified town recreation facilities at no charge. “This partnership would see the town entrust their youth programming to a wellknown and respected organization whose knowledge and skill set is working with youth,” said Beth Reitz, executive director of Boys and Girls Clubs of Wolf Creek. Stenstrom, who met with council Monday, endorsed the program. “Their mission is to provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. I believe that the citizens of Rimbey would strongly

4-H youth help feed a hungry planet Continured from page 8 in urban and suburban areas, and strengthening the 4-H experience nation-wide. Ritz told the summit participants that they were gathering at a time of tremendous optimism about the future of agriculture, with growing global demand for safe, high-quality, environmentally-friendly food. “As never before, the world is looking to young agricultural producers to strengthen food security both in your countries and around the world,” Ritz added, noting that innovation and science-based trade are critical to supporting young farmers, driving global economies and strengthening food security. Support for 4-H Canada comes from the Growing Forward 2 AgriCompetitiveness program, a fiveyear, $114.5-million program that invests in key areas that strengthen the agriculture and agri-food industry’s capacity to adapt and be profitable in domestic and global markets. Innovation and market development, along with competitiveness, are the three strategic objectives of Growing Forward 2, the five-year, $3-billion federal-provincial-territorial framework for Canadian agriculture.

exhibit was the working wooden crane of Thomas Mueller from Bentley. Best Scrapbooking entry went to Erika Howes, a junior entrant from Chestemere. Best Storm Photo was entered by Layne Neil, a junior entrant from Lacombe and Alanna Petterson from Sylvan Lake won Best Preschool Photo with her photo of a cat. The Junior High Point Girl was Aislynn Petterson of Sylvan Lake and the Junior High Point Boy was Brayden Christensen of Regina, Sask. The judge this year was Sheila Budd from Bluffton, and the local convener was again Joan Dickau. “I had a few categories in the crafts that had no entries. I will likely take them out next year and hopefully replace them with a new and current craft. There will be some changes in the Photography,” said Dickau. In the Art & Framed Photography section, under convener Lorraine Neal, more special arts prizes were awarded. Judge’s Choice Adult Art went to Sue Singleton for her painting of the remains of an old log building and for Adult Photo to Leo deGroot of Native children. Judge’s Choice in the Children’s Art section went to Isabella Anderson, 8, for her original artwork of sheep and to Loden Neal, 10, for his cat on a sofa in the Children’s Photo category. Helpers were Jocelyn Szmaciarz, Pam Jones, Michele Mackintosh and others who volunteered with set-up, rearranging and hanging, and clean up.

Original art entries have dropped off over the years and framed photography has seen an increase. There was also a Bazaart (Bazaar of Art) Show and Sale featuring area artists in the Bentley Community Hall on the Saturday from 10 until 4 p.m. with co-ordinators Kathy van Dam, Bobbi Palanuik and Pat Matheson. There were eight booths with everything from jewelry and pottery to weaving and painting and some glass and metal work. “We had a good day. It (the crowd) was steady all the time,” Palaniuk said. “We may consider extending the hours by a half-hour next year to coordinate with the farmers’ market.” All in all, the artistic displays and time spent by so many entrants and volunteers, and by the donors, make the show what it is.

Nonetheless, if we do see the ideal temperatures materialize, the crops will be the among the biggest ever produced and you can expect a sharp sell-off in the market.

Water polo fun in Rimbey pool By Treena Mielke
Nathaniel Waldon, 12, from Rimbey takes his turn at the net during a water polo session held at Rimbey Aquatic Centre, Aug. 12. Treena Mielke Photo
What better way to spend a long, hot August afternoon than at the Rimbey Aquatic Centre learning a fun new game? The name of the game is water polo and the young swimmers at the outdoor pool had lots of help learning how to be the best they can be at the game. About 15 swimmers took part in Alberta Water Polo’s free introductory water polo session held Aug. 12 from 1 to 2 p.m. The session was taught by talented, experienced water polo players. Calgarian Alynn Reade plays NCAA water polo in California for the Azusa Pacific University Cougars. Reade is a liberal studies major and has won many national championships and been a member of Water Polo Canada’s national team.
Also instructing the young players was Raine Paul, who will be going into her third year of graphic design and journalism studies this fall and plays water polo for the California Baptist University Lancers. Originally from Edmonton, Paul has also won national championships and been involved with the water polo Canada programs. Julia Paterson, also an accomplished water polo instructor who competed in Perth Australia in the world junior’s water polo competition also helped with the program. Water polo is fun and exciting, said Paul. “It’s kind of like European handball. Usually its played in deep water using a sort of kicking motion known as an eggbeater kick. Technically, it’s something like basketball. I love it, but I’m probably a bit biased.”

Special mobile bus coming to Bentley library By June Norvila A bookmobile that promotes family literacy and awareness, and tours rural and urban communities across Alberta, is stopping in at Bentley, and families are invited to come by for the day. On Sept. 4 the Alberta Prairie Classroom on Wheels (COW) bus is going to be in the Bentley Municipal Library parking lot from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. It is an actual school-type bus
with painted to look like a cow that has ideas and activities inside for parents to share in with children up to six years old, so parents/caregivers of children in that age range are especially invited to come by with their children. There is no charge: It is free. The library is making a whole special day of it for Bentley and area families. There will be face painting with “Wildberry” in the morning from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with a pre-
sentation of the Literacy Library at 11:30. A hot dog lunch will be available during the noon hour and special guest storyteller, Mayor Joan Dickau, will be there from 1 to 1:30 p.m. followed up by a sing-a-long with Rick Moore from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Other planned activities include bubble blowing and a cow craft. At the end of the day the bookmobile will leave a Legacy Library of about 40 new children’s books.
For more information on this or any other library program contact the Bentley Municipal Library at 403-748-4626. Regular library hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Thursdays from noon until 7:30 p.m.; and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Alberta Prairie COW Bus is funded by Government of Alberta, Enterprise and Advanced Education.
