Filmmakers hope to inspire ‘change’ with documentary New project chronicles the many possibilities of positive change in five lives BY MARK WEBER Red Deer Express


new locally-produced documentary that follows several people looking to make positive changes in their lives is set to be screened Sept. 19 at Galaxy Cinema. Showtime for Change, is 7 p.m. Drew Kenworthy, a Red Deer videographer teamed up with Cabel McElderry, one of the film’s producers and owner of One-to-1 Fitness for the project. “It’s a dream come true for us to be involved in a project that’s so inspiring,” said Kenworthy, who also directed the film. The documentary was nine months in the making, with many hours of filming and editing. It takes a look at five individuals who decided to make positive changes in their lives and the struggles it took to get there. Ultimately, Change is an inspiring documentary about the desire to look good, feel good, be happy and pain free in spite of society’s trend toward disease, depression, painful dysfunction and death, says a release. Chronicling the lives of five individuals, the film hopes to inspire people to make a positive change in their own lives. “I have a longstanding relationship with Cabel – we’ve worked on several different projects together through the years,” said Kenworthy, adding that he at first envisioned a smaller project. But as things came together and conversations with the film’s subjects unfolded, it became clear there was more to explore. “Each of these people played a key role in showing that bigger picture,” he said. “My hope is not for people to look at this just as a movie, documentary or film, but to see it as way more than that. I hope they would take the ideas and the things they’ve learned and the inspiration that they’ve received, and put them into action.” McElderry explains how the project came about. “We have a public mission to help inspire 10,000 people toward making a healthy physical change by 2015, we know we can’t train that many people so we wanted to create

FINAL TOUCHES – Drew Kenworthy (seated) and Cabel McElderry work on their inspiring new documentary entitled Change. The film will be screened Jenna Swan/Red Deer Express Thursday evening at the Galaxy Cinema. something that might help to increase awareness on the positive effects of change and to inspire people to share their stories.” Getting in shape is not always easy and this new documentary focuses on the challenges that people face when they decide to embrace a healthier and active lifestyle, he said. “In a time that health care is continually letting us down, when it seems like surgery, pain and other limitations are ‘just something we have to live with’ we wanted to show people that that’s only true if you accept it,” he said. “Now, more than ever, we must learn the practice of ‘selfcare’ and acknowledge just how

“WE WANTED TO MAKE THE DOCUMENTARY TO PROMOTE AWARENESS IN THE COMMUNITY AND REWARD THESE INDIVIDUALS FOR THEIR WORK BY TELLING THEIR STORY.” DREW KENWORTHY amazing our body is. “We hope the documentary will convey that message and inspire others to believe that change and a life without limitations is within their reach, no matter what. We believe that change is a core value to live by and hope

that Change will inspire others to embrace change in their own lives.” Meanwhile, Kenworthy is also hoping that lessons can be passed onto younger generations. “We have a responsibility to teach our children and help them to understand the right habits. It’s a growing problem with childhood obesity, and it’s scary. These bad habits have already led to a lot of problems in my own generation.” Kenworthy, 37, graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s (NAIT’s) Radio and Television program in 1999. He has owned his own video busi-

ness for 10 years, producing both wedding and corporate projects, and has been making films since he was a teenager. He recently started a new business Shoelace Media with business partner Matthew Edwards. Shoelace Media produces corporate films, as well as web sites for businesses. “Cabel is just a good guy, wanting to help people with their fitness goals,” said Kenworthy of McElderry and the film. “We wanted to make the documentary to promote awareness in the community and reward these individuals for their work by telling their story.”

Councillor Tara Veer said she believes council needs to wrap up the issue because the pilot project is now finished. “We told the public that this would be a two-year pilot project. This council, I think, needs to complete the debate on this,” she said. “This ultimately extends this and dishonours our word to the public.” The motion to take another look at 39th St. passed with a vote of 7-2 with Stephan and Veer opposed.

Stephan said the bike lane pilot was “a disaster” for the City. “I think we really missed the mark with this pilot project. Why don’t we just archive this in the City’s history as being a terrible decision, admit that we were wrong and let’s go back and fix the problems we have created,” he said. “Let’s move on and get rid of the bike lanes.” Councillor Lynne Mulder disagreed. “I think bike lanes are coming.

Suspect in armed robbery makes first court appearance BY ERIN FAWCETT Red Deer Express The suspect allegedly involved in an armed robbery at the West Park Fas Gas last week that left a clerk shot in the hand and face, made his first court appearance on Monday. RCMP said at 11:20 p.m. on Sept. 11 a lone male entered the gas station, walked up to the clerk at the counter and produced a sawed-off shotgun. When the clerk placed

the money on the counter the suspect discharged the shotgun. The victim was hit in the hand and face and continues to recover in a Calgary hospital. The suspect was last seen fleeing westbound on Cronquist Dr. on a bicycle. He turned himself into Blackfalds police on Sept. 13. Jeffrey Lyle Geary, 30, of no fixed address in Red Deer has been charged with attempted murder, robbery with a prohibited firearm,

possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a loaded prohibited firearm and possession of a stolen prohibited firearm. Geary  was remanded into custody and  will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on Sept. 25. Other news sources have identified the victim as Jaysen Arancon Reyes, 26. He moved to Canada from the Philippines this past spring.

YOUR HEALTH President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch


NPN 80042283 Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Truthful actual experiences from real people:

 For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONFor 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC I suffered for years with sciatica. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of #1 thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all.

Stops torturing your partner all night. Good sleep prevents being tired next day. Tired people work only at half capacity. I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen #23 Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

What people experience: I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered #24 I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB  For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days.

OPINION Candidate overflow As election season is upon us citizens have been bombarded with candidates seeking a spot on City council. To date, 25 Red Deerians have declared their candidacy for council – this includes 20 newcomers and five incumbents. There are also four candidates running for mayor as current Mayor Morris Flewwelling is not seeking re-election. The level of interest in this year’s election and in municipal politics in general is a good thing. It’s nice to see people charged up about the election and about a variety of issues as well. Any election can be sleepy if there are no issues or controversy but this year with two extremely strong candidates for mayor, that has really stepped up the game this time around. That is sure to be an exciting race as we predict it will be a close one. However, 25 candidates for citizens to weed through and become well informed about so voters can make an educated vote is virtually impossible. Likely some voters will turn to name recognition as a means to making their choices which is in favour of the incumbents regardless of their performance. This can be good and bad. Of course some of the incumbents definitely deserve to be re-elected, but there also needs to be some change.

There is no solution to this unless the number of candidates is capped, but of course that could never happen. It is just too bad that voters are left to sort through the flood of candidates. We saw this exact scenario in the 2004 election. There were 25 candidates at that time as well and it was tough for voters to keep things straight. Even at the forums they often went on for so long that towards the end people lost interest and many of the candidates were cut off due to time constraints. It is also overwhelming to see that many names on the ballot. However, the upcoming forums are a good way for Red Deerians to learn briefly about the candidates as they have very limited time to speak. We are urging Red Deerians to really take the time to learn about each candidate and what they stand for. Attend the forums, contact the candidates directly and really do your research. Now that election terms are four years instead of three, it is more important than ever to make sure educated votes are cast. Don’t forget, voters don’t need to vote for all eight candidates – that is a common misconception. Pick a few that you really believe in and don’t fill up the ballot just because you feel you have to.

How to achieve true Aboriginal reconciliation in Canada The racial tension in post-Apartheid South Africa was palpable. Living in South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission over 15 years ago, I saw value for a similar process to take place in my native Canada. After the negotiated settlement of the Struggle against Apartheid, South Africa’s legislated racial segregation policy, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was initiated to bear witness to human rights violations under Apartheid. South Africa was the first country to embark on this disclosure process under the inspired leadership of Nelson Mandela. What I recall most vividly from South Africa’s TRC was Mandela’s vision to maintain peace in South Africa by acknowledging “We all have blood on our hands”. The TRC at the very least provided a


WHITE catharsis and dialogue to build a positive future. Canada is currently engaged in a Truth and Reconciliation Commission with the mandate to address Indian Residential Schools (IRS). In 1997, Phil Fontaine was elected National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations and began negotiations with the federal government and the churches for a settlement for IRS survivors. This eventually led to the IRS Settlement Agreement, the largest class action settlement in Canadian history. These actions by indigenous leaders in Canada

also lead to the memorable apology by Prime Minister Stephen Harper on June 11, 2008 “A cornerstone of the Settlement Agreement is the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This Commission presents a unique opportunity to educate all Canadians on the Indian Residential Schools system. It will be a positive step in forging a new relationship between Aboriginal peoples and other Canadians, a relationship based on the knowledge of our shared history, a respect for each other and a desire to move forward together with a renewed understanding that strong families, strong communities and vibrant cultures and traditions will contribute to a stronger Canada for all of us.” The most recent news on the TRC has been the Supreme Court decision in favour of the TRC resolv-

ing that the Government of Canada must hand over archived documents which recently revealed medical and nutritional experiments having taken place on Aboriginal children. One question remains, however, how will the TRC directly impact struggling Aboriginal communities in Canada? Aboriginal child poverty rates are a staggering 50%, over 60% in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, according to a recent report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Save the Children Canada. This level of poverty is far greater than with any other specific demographic in Canada, bringing into question the usefulness of the Indian Act. Has the Indian Act essentially constructed the current state of poverty within indigenous communities across Canada? The Indian Residential Schools were not the only Indian Act policy to impact the

traditional way of life. Some indigenous Canadians wonder if the TRC will provide true reconciliation. According to Dawn Smith, a Nuu-chah-nulth doctoral student at UBC and former chief councillor of her home community Ehattesaht. “In Canada, colonization continues and under these circumstances real or true reconciliation is almost impossible given most people remain unaware of colonization.” Reconciliation means that we all must bear witness to what lurks in the dark shadows of Canada’s past. It was Indian Act policy to forcibly take Aboriginal children from their communities, to ban spiritual and cultural ceremony, and to imprison those who practiced their beliefs. Reconciliation means creating a genuine understanding among all Canadians of the profound impacts colonization has had on indigenous

Canadians, and to redefine this relationship, moving forward to create a more equitable and positive outlook for all Canadians. On Sept. 22 in Vancouver, Reconciliation Canada is sponsoring a Walk for Reconciliation as a culmination of a Reconciliation Week. The vision of Reconciliation Canada is “To promote reconciliation by engaging Canadians in dialogue that revitalizes the relationships between Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians in order to build resilience.” What is needed for reconciliation to take place is deep dialogue in communities across Canada. There lies the opportunity -- for each of us as Canadians to reconcile how we can contribute to a positive outlook for indigenous Canadians.

Ben Ordman announces candidacy for City council BY ERIN FAWCETT Red Deer Express A longtime community member has thrown his hat into the election ring for City council. Ben Ordman, who also ran in the 2004 election, has announced his candidacy.

“I’m running for council because there are things that I can impact positively that I think are essential. I’ve had some very valuable experiences in my career and life that would benefit a wide range of people in Red Deer from youth to seniors,” he said.

“I believe the quality of life of the citizens of Red Deer is improved when you look at solutions that engage all sectors of the community.” He added there are a number of issues he would like to tackle. “In terms of development, I think we have to look at building

inward and upward. We have to look at directing more private investment to the downtown area and we need to look at more residential development in older areas like Riverside Meadows that could be gentrified in so many wonderful ways,” said Ord-

man, who is also seeking a seat on the Red Deer Public School Board. “I’m in support of the Riverlands project. I think we also need to look at ways at engaging the northern part of the City – in particular the northwest. That part of the City has its own territorial variance – it’s unique. It’s near industrial activity, a railway line and there are issues of noise and even potentially safety.” Crime and safety are other issues Ordman would like to address if elected. “I think we have a much safer City than the Maclean’s article identifying us as one of the most dangerous cities in Canada,” he said. “I studied criminology in university and what I learned was statistics can be misconstrued and misused. We have very good reporting and response to crime and we have been well served by the RCMP. I am sometimes skeptical of ‘drive-by journalism’ – reporters from another region creating a framework of opinion around just table-top statistics without visiting a community.” As for a ward system, Ordman said he thinks one should be considered. “It needs to be done in a way that at-large duties are considered in the process. When you define a ward system to make sure that you are not narrowing the concept to a point that is too constrictive of the role

BEN ORDMAN of a councillor.” He added council should look at how progressive the City is going to be. “Are we overly conservative or are we progressive and modern? That will be important in the message we send to provincial and federal governments when we are looking at attracting high profile events both in business and in sports.” If elected, Ordman, who has had career experience in education, real estate and construction supervision, said he will bring many attributes to the table. He has served on volunteer committees including as president of Neighbourhood Watch, on the policing and taxi committees and the Red Deer College athletic enhancement. “I would be able to contribute to a very good oversight and be prepared to ask questions of stakeholders and service providers that would benefit council as a whole.”

Serge Gingras has been a resident of the City since 1985. “Along with my 28 years of dedicated service at Red Deer College, my involvement in the community, passion for community service and a strong desire to genuinely represent our community’s needs and values at City council motivate me to seek this exciting opportunity.” Gingras said experiences ranging from professional development activities, presentations at conferences and volunteering to networking with local, provincial and national agencies, organizations and governments have enabled him to further his knowledge, skills and expertise in the areas of teaching and learning, sports, health and wellness, arts and culture, leadership, and community service. “I think I can bring a lot to the table in terms of my background and my experience.” In making his decision to run, Gingras pointed out that he believes the City is at something of a crossroads and a fresh, new vision is needed, and that people in general are ready for a change.

City going in the future, and what are our plans for the community?” He said fiscal responsibility is also a common topic of discussion. “I can’t imagine anybody running for office without being fiscally responsible,” he said, adding that some of his duties at RDC have given him experience in that particular area. “But there is more to governance than fiscal responsibility. You also have

to look at the needs of the community. And because of decisions that have been made at higher levels of government – provincial and federal – I find there are more and more people in the community that tend to fall through the cracks. “We have to make sure that we have the safety nets to help those in need, and prevent people from falling through the cracks.” Aging infrastructure is also a concern in the City,

which has experienced a period of rapid growth over the past several years, he said. He also added that a conversation around a new aquatic centre, concert hall and museum should start, although the establishment of those facilities may be years in the future. “We have to start the conversation about making those happen down the road.”

SERGE GINGRAS “People want to hear what the vision is for Red Deer,” he said. “Where do we go from here, particularly when someone new will be in the mayor’s seat. “It will be interesting and exciting.” Meanwhile, he’s been enjoying getting out into the community – including attending events such as the Farmers’ Market - to hear what residents have to say. “The last two weeks have been incredible in terms of people I’ve been meeting – they are becoming more and more interested in the election. Probably in part because of the number of candidates that are running. They want to cast their votes in an educated way.” To date, 25 candidates have entered the race. Gingras, 55, who ran in the last provincial election under the Alberta Party banner, said the time is

Citizens generally satisfied with life in Red Deer BY ERIN FAWCETT Red Deer Express Ninety-seven per cent of citizens say Red Deer’s quality of life is good to very good, according to the 2013 Ipsos Reid Citizen Satisfaction Survey. “This survey is just one tool we use to check the pulse of the community and find out what is top of mind for Red Deerians,” said City Manager Craig Curtis. “The information

Ipsos collects gives us a sense as to how satisfied people are with City services, programs and initiatives as we establish our budgets and look to 2014 and beyond.” The majority of citizens stated that growth and development in the City, employment and job opportunities, all contributed to their quality of life. “Quality of life includes a range of measures, but I love hearing that people

think Red Deer is friendly and courteous, clean, beautiful and a great place to live,” said Mayor Morris Flewwelling. “I am proud to call Red Deer home, and it’s nice to be reminded that others share my love of this community.” When asked about all the programs and services received, 83% of Red Deerians felt they received good value for their tax dollar. Services are used by residents on a daily basis, and

54% of Red Deerians support increasing taxes to enhance or maintain services. Thirty per cent favoured cutting services to maintain or reduce taxes. Transportation was still top of mind this year, with 41% of Red Deerians once again reporting it was the most important issue facing the community. Fifty four per cent feel that the

City is doing a very good or somewhat good job of managing our road infrastructure; however, this is a decrease of 7% from 2012. “It is clear that road infrastructure is a priority for residents,” said Curtis. In terms of other infrastructure, respondents feel the City is doing a very good or somewhat good job of managing our recreation

facilities (92%); water (89%) and wastewater (86%) treatment facilities; and our transit system (74%). From May 29 to June 9 the Citizen Satisfaction Survey was administered by Ipsos Reid. It was conducted by telephone to a randomly selected sample of 300 residents aged 18 years or older.

United Way kicks off annual campaign BY JENNA SWAN Red Deer Express A sea of red was witnessed last week at the Sheraton Hotel during the United Way’s annual Kick Off Luncheon, where attendees all dressed in red were encouraged to “become a superhero for change.” The luncheon kicked off the launch of their 2013 community campaign, in which the United Way is aiming to raise $2.25 million. This four-month drive works to raise funds for services and programs that help one in three Central Albertans each year. This year’s event brought forward the idea that everyone can be a superhero by supporting the community. Among the speakers present at the event, were three individuals who had all been helped by programs and services provided by funding from the United Way. The individuals who hailed from various locations throughout Central Alberta emphasized the impact that the United

Way has on communities throughout the province. Also in attendance at this year’s event were 2013 volunteer campaign co-chairs Buck Buchanan and Dustin Sundby who spoke before the crowd thanking the community for last year’s support and encouraged those in attendance to support the 2013 campaign. “People need to realize that although the United Way has been around for almost 50 years, we still need everyone’s help to make this campaign a success and help everyone who needs assistance,” said Buchanan. Sundby wrapped up the speech by stating that, “There is a power in numbers. Last year alone 108,836 people were helped by programs and services supported by United Way. We strive to encourage more people to step forward to support their community so that more people can receive the help they need.” Another announcement was made at the luncheon, in which the Leadership Match-

ing Challenge will be moving forward for the second year in a row. This year’s challenge will match up to $28,500 due to the support of MNP, Warren Sinclair LLP, Canadian Tire North as well as Peter and Kathy Lacey. “We are excited to be a part of this matching initiative for the second year in

a row, we hope that by making our early commitment to this leadership initiative it will inspire others in the community to make a difference,” said Don Sinclair of Warren Sinclair LLP. “With all of us doing our part, we can make amazing things happen for our community.”

POLICE BRIEFS RCMP INVESTIGATE TWO SEPARATE ROBBERIES Red Deer RCMP continue to investigate two robberies that have taken place in the City. On Sept. 8th at 6:19 p.m. a male entered the Liquor Barn located at 3430 50th Ave. The suspect entered the store, approached the cashier and asked for “Money please.� The employee complied with the request, and the suspect took three bottles of vodka and exited through the front door with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured during the robbery. The suspect is described as approximately 6’2� tall and weighing about 175-200 lbs. He was wearing a blue jumpsuit (like worn on rigs) with a dark blue hood as well as a mask which looked like a toque with homemade holes for eyes. Then on Sept. 12th at 6:28 p.m. a male, matching the description of the male above, entered the Taylor Plaza Liquor store located at 6730 Taylor Dr. The male entered the store, approached the cashier and asked “For

by Erin Fawcett

all the money please.� The male then took the cash and ed the store. No one was injured during this robbery. The male suspect is described as approximately 6’ tall, approximately 190 lbs. He was wearing blue overalls similar to what is worn on the oil rigs as well as a mask which looked like a toque with holes for eyes. Red Deer RCMP believes the same male may be responsible for both of these robberies. Anyone with information that will assist the RCMP in identifying the suspect or suspects responsible is asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

SUSPICIOUS ITEM LOCATED ON CITY PROPERTY RCMP continue to investigate a suspicious item that was reported on City property last week. On Sept. 12th at 3:28 p.m. police received a report of a suspicious item, believed to be a pipe bomb, in a secure electrical substation, owned by the City of Red Deer, lo-

cated across the street from 5330 47th Ave. RCMP Explosives Disposal Unit (EDU) was contacted and attended the scene, removed and secured the suspicious item. Emergency Services and Electric Light & Power crews were also utilized throughout this incident. This investigation is ongoing and more information will be released once it becomes available. Anyone with information that can assist the police can contact Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.

She was treated and released from the hospital.

The suspect vehicle did not slow down when contact was made with the pedestrian and continued to travel north turning onto 67 St. It is believed to be an older model car. The pedestrian was crossing at a marked crosswalk with the lights illuminated warning motorists the crosswalk was in use. Anyone with information that can assist the police is asked to contact Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.

RCMP INVESTIGATE ARMED ROBBERY RCMP continue to investigate an armed robbery in the City.

mosphere and sights and sounds that might have been present in the 50s when we hosted fairs by the arena,” said Burton. She said there will also be things for the older crowd that will be reminiscent of what they recalled during fairs in their younger years. “We will have a pumpkin contest, a scarecrow competition and a penny carnival along with milk-can train rides.” Along with the activities to take part in there will be entertainment including musicians on stage as well as roving musicians playing various genres of music. Burton also said people will be able to take part in ice cream making the oldfashioned way. “Quite often these oldfashion fairs would have their exhibits or displays so we are inviting the public to bring their own items.” Items that could be included for the displays and

exhibits may consist of plants, flowers or greens. Burton said people may wish to bring their bestdressed vegetable or a bouquet of flowers they are proud of. “The exhibits and displays will be as grand as the number of people that bring things in.” If people want to bring items for display or supplies for the scarecrow competition they must be present by 11:30 a.m. the day of the fair. Sunnybrook Farm will also have pie and ice cream for sale. “There will be all kinds of sack races and three-legged races; just the kinds of things that people may have done for fun back when.” The event is free to attend, with the only cost being to take part in the scarecrow competition. “The scarecrow competition winner is by people’s choice for a cash prize.” The cost to enter the scarecrow competition is $50 for businesses, $20 for

non-profit organizations and $15 for families and individuals. “We want to make this event as accessible to everyone as we can. We want to commemorate the history and display the connection with the rural roots in the City.” The event runs from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday at Sunnybrook Farm. Meanwhile, there are still more ways to celebrate the centennial as the cooler weather kicks in.

Local dancers triumphant in Scotland Eleven young dancers from the Red Deer Region Highland Dancing Association recently returned from a twoweek trip to Scotland. The contingent of 34 people was organized by the Association’s treasurer Rhonda Brown, and included multiple tours, the world famous Edinburgh Tattoo and three major dancing competitions as part of the wellknown Scottish Highland Games. Local dance instructor and Scottish official board judge, Arlene Bain, acted as coach for the Central Alberta dancers. Ultimately, the troupe landed a total of 62 medals. Seventeen-year-old Claire Brown won the aggregate trophy and was honoured by the leading the pipe bands through town at the conclusion of the games. In Perth, Madison Puttee was honoured with the 12 years and under premier overseas gold medallion. At Crieff, 16-year-old Leila Noonan won the novice aggregate trophy. The vastness of the Highland Games in Scotland with their mul-

tiple activities, coupled with competitors from all over the world, was an overwhelming experience for the

dancers – one they will cherish forever,” said Bain. - Weber

The City is asking residents to park it on Sept. 22 for World Car Free Day. Residents are encouraged to consider an alternate form of transportation to visit a park – or anywhere else in the City. For residents who haven’t explored the City by bus, it’s a perfect day to try it out as Red Deer Transit is free on World Car Free Day for regular service and the Action Bus. More information on routes can be found at Residents can look at carpooling as an option to get around too. The City has partnered with carpool. ca, a free service, to match drivers and passengers based on their commuting and occasional driving needs. Spend less on gas, parking, and vehicle maintenance by signing up. “We’re not asking people to make huge changes to how they get around the City, but we are asking

they consider leaving their vehicle at home for the day and try getting where they need to go in a more environmentally friendly way,” said Lauren Maris, environmental program specialist. “I think people will find they feel less stressed, and more connected to their friends, families, and communities when they walk or take their bikes to a neighbourhood park.” World Car Free Day started in the 1990s with the goal of reducing reliance on vehicles and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. “When we leave our vehicles at home, there are benefits to our health, our wallets, and the environment. If we park the car for the day, we might find that there are so many upsides to alternative transportation, we might consider doing it on a more regular basis,” said Maris. -Weber

The bountiful harvest of 1928 Another fall harvest is well underway. Although many crops were late in getting planted, for much of September (at least so far), there has been great harvesting weather with warm dry days. Moreover, regardless of all the diversification of the Central Alberta economy, for the past 125 years, agricultural has remained one of the key economic pillars of the region. The ups and downs in that sector are felt across the whole economy. Unfortunately, Central Alberta’s farmers have faced some devastating years. The poor crop of 1919, followed by the brutal winter of 1919-1920, meant many farmers did not have enough feed for their livestock, causing losses of animals due to starvation and disease. The closest the Red Deer area came to a total crop loss due to drought was in 1922. Yields were so light that old-timers reminisced that a man had little trouble keeping up with the stacking of the sheaves coming off the binders, as there were so few bundles for them to collect. On the other hand, there have been some magnificent harvests. One of the very best on record came in the fall of 1915. There had been heavy spring rains followed by a warm dry summer and fall. Crop yields were wonderful. Moreover,


DAWE because of the demand for grain and livestock that accompanied the First World War, prices remained high. If there was one drawback to the banner year of 1915, it was the fact so many young men had enlisted for the War, thereby causing a shortage of farm labour to help with the harvest. The year 1927 brought some wonderful crops of grain. Prices were very good. Unfortunately, 1927 also brought extreme weather. Rocky Mountain House was almost completely demolished by a tornado in July. Hailstorms hit many farmers around Red Deer hard. Hence, what should have been a good local harvest was generally wiped out. Fortunately, 1928 brought better luck. Crop yields were excellent. Disastrous communist government policies caused record low production across the wheat belts of the Ukraine. Consequently, world wheat prices remained high. An estimated 70% of the near record western Canadian wheat crop was success-

fully exported. The good times for local farmers quickly spread across the community. Merchants reported a sharp increase in sales. The T. Eaton Company decided to open a department store and groceteria, the first national chain to do so in Red Deer. Farm machinery dealers had trouble keeping up with the demand for tractors, threshing machines and other equipment. The local automobile dealers and garages also experienced a wonderful increase in business. Although most cars and trucks were still poorly suited to winter, many people dreamed of becoming a vehicle owner and now felt they could afford one. Although the crop of 1929 was much smaller than the one in 1928 because of dry conditions, the boom in Red Deer continued. The City recorded its best year of new construction since the big boom before the First World War. Then, when it looked like prosperity had returned to stay, disaster struck. The American stock markets crashed in October. The world plunged into the worst economic depression in modern times. The local farm sector and the community faced another decade of hard economic times and often destitution. Another Alberta boom had gone bust.

As of July there were 389,174 sq. ft. of vacant industrial space in Red Deer which is 29,573 sq. ft. less than the 2012 count of 418,747 sq. ft. CEO/senior appraiser Mike Garcelon stated “From 2012 to 2013 there was an increase of 386,322 square feet of industrial building space in Red Deer, however the increase in demand was far greater and so the vacancy rate actually dropped from 3.44% to 3.10%. “This is a continuation of the same strong demand trends we found in 2011 and 2012. The Red Deer industrial market continues to be very strong.”

HIRING EXPECTED TO REMAIN STEADY Red Deer area employers expect a steady hiring climate for the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey. “Survey data reveals that 27 per cent of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter (October to December), while 10 per cent anticipate cutbacks,” stated Randy Upright, CEO of Manpower’s Alberta region. Another 63 per cent of employers plan to maintain their current staffing levels in the upcoming quarter. “With seasonal variations

removed from the data, Red Deer’s fourth quarter Net Employment Outlook of 16 per cent is a slight decrease of two percentage points when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook,” said Upright. “It is also an eight percentage point decrease from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a hopeful hiring pace for the upcoming months.” Byrne Luft, vice president of Operations for Manpower Canada, said, “Overall, a mild national hiring climate is projected in the coming quarter. “The construction industry is anticipating the strongest gains, as slower growth in residential construction has been offset by strong demand in non-residential. “This is expected to spur creation of new jobs on top of record high employment in the construction industry, though this is most pronounced in western Canada,” said Luft. “Overall, we’re seeing a trend of more companies hiring workers on a temporary or contract basis with relatively few choosing to hire full-time.”

BUILDING PERMITS HOLDING STRONG Building permit values for August made large gains with 162 permits issued, valued at just over $19 million. This is a significant increase from the number of permits issued in August 2012 where 128 permits were issued valued at just over $11

HEARTLAND CUP BALL HOCKEY TOURNAMENT World Class Contracting Ltd, Mechanical Contractors in Red Deer, is once again hosting Ball hockey teams, family and friends at their back yard rink through the weekend of Sept. 20-22. This event will be held out on Burnt Lake Trail, just off of Hwy 11. This is a ‘Friends of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’ event. Friends of the Heart and Stroke Foundation are individuals, families, community groups, associations and corporations who host their own fundraising event(s) in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Because of the support of donors and fundraisers alike, the Foundation invested more than $3 million dollars in heart and stroke research teams in Alberta universities, hospitals and institutes. Also, officials say that thanks to the efforts of supporters, hospital patients now receive a level of care that could not be achieved without HSF funding. The Foundation has invested more than $1.3 billion in vital heart and stroke research over its 60-year history, paying a rich healthcare dividend for all Albertans. Thanks to those who have supported the Heartland Cup over the last four years, this event has grossed more than $25,000. These funds have already been put to use supporting research, risk awareness and advocacy throughout Alberta, NWT & Nunavut. Statistics show that one in three deaths are due to cardiovascular disease - more than 69,000 Canadians lose their lives each year. Also, nine in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke, and every seven minute in Canada, someone dies from heart disease or stroke. According to the Foundation, risk factors that can be controlled include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, being overweight, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking and a lack of physical activity.

Folk/rock troubadours plan City show Toronto-based band Elliott BROOD head to The Hideout Sept. 20 One of Canada’s most prolific and gifted folk groups is heading to Red Deer next month. Elliott BROOD, based in the Toronto area, performs at The Hideout Sept. 20. The trio is described as a group that writes songs steeped in history that somehow feel very present. For their latest CD, 2011’s Days Into Years, it was century-old stories encountered an ocean away that brought them closest to home. On the band’s first European tour back in 2007 they found themselves driving through the backroads of France. Vocalist Mark Sasso, guitarist Casey Laforet and drummer Stephen Pitkin, all enthusiasts of military history, raised on the harrowing stories of Canadians in World War 1, were simply looking to avoid the toll highways. Then they came upon a sign for a WW1 military cemetery. “We’d been driving through Belgium and France, always passing by these historical war places and we decided to pull over and take this one in,” recalls Sasso. “We saw all these Canadian names, and it really resonated with us, these young guys that had gone off to war. I knew all about it from reading books, but when you actually visit a place where the battles were, it hits you a lot harder. We said, ‘We need to write a record about it’.” Days Into Years is Elliott BROOD’s third full-length recording, the follow-up to 2008’s Polaris Prize short-listed Mountain Meadows. Like its predecessors, including the 2004 debut EP Tin Type and 2006’s Juno-nominated Ambassador, it mines real history to connect songs that are deeply personal in a cinematic, narrative way. Unfolding like a series of movie scenes, it looks to the future by starting with the past. Opening track Lindsay invites the listener into process of revisiting one’s life while cleaning out an old family home. If I Get Old daydreams of making it through difficult times, be they in the trenches or a sickbed, and finding a nice place in the country to live out one’s final moments. Days Into Years presents these reflections as a celebration of life, particularly on the perfect summer single Northern Air, a love letter both to the rural Ontario



landscape and the memory of a departed friend whose spirit now resides there. Recorded with co-producer John Critchley at Green Door Studios in Toronto and Avening Town Hall (a former army barracks) in rural Ontario, the album showcases a more amped up Elliott BROOD that will put the knell to the ‘death country’ tag that described their early work. Now, the roof-raising rhythm stomp and mandolin collides with luscious harmonies, piano and, for the first time, electric guitar in a mix Laforet admits is “Loud, heavy and rock ‘n’ roll.” But after touring with acts like Wilco, Blue Rodeo, Corb Lund and the Sadies, playing festivals across North America, Europe and Australia and scoring the 2010 film Grown-Up Movie Star (for which they earned a Gemini nomination for Best Original Song), the band now also has a global presence. With Days Into Years they bring their music, and of one of the greatest Canadian stories, to the world. Joining Elliott BROOD for their show at The Hideout is the Luke Blu Guthrie Band. The band is a two-time VIMA-nominated, rhythm and blues duo that electrifies the stage with its alternative roots beat. Consisting of Luke Blu Guthrie and Elizabeth Penney, the pair can be counted on for a powerful, soulful performance that “vibrates the stage with poignant melodies that include slide guitar, masterful finger picking, strong vocals and upbeat bass lines.” Named one of CBC’s independent artists to watch in 2011 and nominated for Male Songwriter of the Year at the VIMA’s in 2012, Guthrie is a growing presence on Canadian radio with live CDs. Meanwhile, the most recent disc, Oil and Water, saw the band’s fan base explode in 2012. Armed with acoustic and electric guitars, assorted foot percussion and plenty of rhythmic ‘slaps and yowls’, Guthrie has also been an integral part of the Vancouver Island music scene for over a decade. He is widely respected for his versatility and skill as a songwriter, vocalist and guitar player. Elizabeth Penney joined the band in 2011.

EMOTIVE TUNES – Toronto’s Elliott BROOD performs at The Hideout on Sept. 20. An accomplished bassist with explosive rhythms, she incorporates elements of dance, funk, blues and country into the act. She has more than 20 years of performance experience, and is just as comfortable in a small town venue as she is sharing the stage with some of Hong Kong’s top recording artists. Like Guthrie, she also has deep roots on Vancouver Island and her upbeat, downto-earth spirit permeates her musical and

stylistic contributions. There’s no doubt that the band will continue to be an integral part of the western Canadian music scene in years to come. “I would hope that people can discover a bit of themselves in my songs,” he says. “I always like it when I hear someone sing a line and I go ‘Hey! I’ve thought that before’. I hope these songs can help people to examine issues from different perspectives.”

CAT presents Butterflies Are Free BY MARK WEBER Red Deer Express Central Alberta Theatre is launching into a new season with the production Butterflies Are Free, opening Sept. 26 in the Memorial Centre’s Nickel Studio. Curtain is 7:30 p.m. with shows through to Oct. 12. There is also a matinee on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. The 1960s romantic comedy Butterflies Are Free is the story of a young man, Don Baker, blind from birth, who is trying to experience life on his own much to his over-protective mother’s chagrin. The flighty hippy girl in the next apartment (Jill) adds both the love and comedy interest. Butterflies Are Free was a 1972 film based on the play by Leonard Gershe, which had made its debut in 1969.

“It didn’t have a long theatre life before it was eclipsed by the movie,” explains director Tanya Ryga, an instructor at Red Deer College and a gifted actor in her own right. Although there is much humour in the script, there is pain as well, she said. “It’s both funny/painful, and painfully funny.” Goldie Hawn and Edward Albert starred in the film’s central roles, and Eileen Heckart received an Academy Award for her performance as Mrs. Baker. And while the original play was set in Manhattan, the screenplay written for the film was set in San Francisco. The cast in CAT’s adaptation features Jordan Galloway as Don, Nicole Leal as Jill, Barbara Adams as Mrs. Baker and Dylan Hopkins as Ralph Austin, a the-

atre director. For Ryga, delving into the world of the late 1960s was a joy on every front, from the finding the fashions of the time to exploring the music. It was a turbulent time socially, but in many ways there are striking similarities to today. But it’s a relatable play as well, with those themes of love, family, letting kids go and finding one’s way in the world. Don Baker hails from a wealthy suburb so it’s incredibly tough for his mom to see her son leave that kind of stability for an apartment in a gritty part of the city. But Don is longing for independence – in spite of his blindness. “Mothers and fathers can be overprotective, worried or concerned, but that’s just love in another form. They’re learning how to let go – hence the ‘butterflies’ motif,” said Ryga. “Everyone is learning to let go in this play.” Mrs. Baker eventually drops in and is horrified to see his apartment, but he loves it and is finding his way in his new surroundings – along with Jill, who is trying to break into the acting scene. Don and Jill couldn’t be more different, but end up forging a close relationship. “It is the story of their love, their relationship and how they affect each other. She sees in him such great strength, and begins to get over a fear of boundaries. And he starts to let loose a little bit, understand his and understand that life is going to be really, really hard for him. He might embrace his blindness, but the world isn’t ready yet. “But ultimately, this play is about family; it’s about falling in love and leaving the nest.” For tickets call 403-755-6626 or visit www.

Finding balance with your fitness program Is your exercise routine working for you? Are you getting the results you hoped for? Are you reaching your weight-loss goals?


WHEELER Unfortunately, many people become frustrated with a lack of immediate results in the gym and blame it on a slow metabolism or genetics. These folks may conclude that exercise isn’t the answer and give up altogether. Hopefully this isn’t your story. But if the pounds aren’t dropping as quickly as you anticipated, you may need to re-evaluate the way you view exercise. When it comes to shedding extra pounds, exercise isn’t the whole solution. It’s a part of the solution. Weight loss is about burning more calories than you consume. If you think you’re doing great by exercising 150 minutes while continuing to eat a 3,000-calorie diet, you’re not. There are many factors that affect your weight -- diet, exercise, stress, sleep, genetics, and medications. A person’s weight is related to his or her lifestyle, not how many times the treadmill gets used. Exercise is needed, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Diet and exercise go hand in hand when it comes to losing weight and keeping weight off. Those jeans you were finally able to wear are too tight once again. How can you keep those pounds off ? The answer is regular cardio exercise. When you finally reach a healthy weight through dieting or a combination of exercise and diet, physical activity is an essential part of maintaining that desired weight. You hit the gym several times a week? That’s great! But what about the other 95% of your time?

A healthy weight and a healthy body result from a healthy, active lifestyle not just an active hobby (the gym). Half an hour on the treadmill won’t do much good for a person leading a sedentary life. Make physical activity part of your life. Take a walk during lunch, take the stairs instead of the elevator, lift hand weights during commercial breaks (or do jumping jacks or situps during the commercials). It’s the little things that make a big difference and it’s the little things that as personal trainers we have to preach every day. It’s easy to underestimate the number of calories you consume. You may think the exercise you did in the morning will make up for the piece of pie you ate at lunch, but for a 200-pound person, it takes a whole hour of brisk walking to burn the number of calories in a single piece of apple pie. It’s often difficult to estimate the number of calories you consume because portion sizes are so large these days. You may think you’re eating one serving, but it could really count as two. Track your daily caloric intake closely. Like seeing how many calories you’re burning while running on the treadmill? Exercise machines such as the treadmill, elliptical, or stationary bicycle calculate burned calories, but keep in mind the number you see is just a rough estimate. The rate you burn calories is determined by many factors including your age, sex, weight, body composition (fat vs. muscle), and metabolism, so each person burns calories at a different rate. Machines can’t know all this information and therefore give you only an estimate. Use the calorie counter to motivate you to keep exercising, not as permission to eat another donut. Also, keep in mind that even if you weren’t exercising, you’d burn calories. To figure out how many extra calories you burn,

subtract the number of calories your body burns when at rest. The number of additional calories burned may be much less than you originally thought. In scientific research, obese in-

dividuals lost more weight by diet alone than exercise alone. However, the best results will always be found with a lifestyle overhaul, resulting in increased exercise and improved dietary choices.

Remember, you can do this. You can make the small changes in your everyday life that add up to big results over time. Jack Wheeler is a personal trainer and owner of 360 Fitness in Red Deer.

It was the year 1657, when coffee was first introduced into London, England from the Middle East. In recent years people have considered coffee drinking a questionable habit with some refusing coffee for health reasons. So what are the pros and cons. First, the good news. Coffee contains over 1,000 naturally occurring chemicals. Caffeine is actually a natural pesticide that helps to protect coffee plants from predators. Brewed coffee contains between 60 to 120 milligrams of caffeine that stimulates the nervous system, improving alertness and mood. It’s therefore not surprising that a British Medical Journal reports an Australian study that shows caffeine decreased the risk of accidents for long-distance truck drivers. Over 20 studies show that coffee also helps to reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes caused by obesity. Coffee contains chlorogenic acid

which decreases the absorption of glucose from the bowel. The less glucose in the blood, the less strain on insulin production. But coffee is of no help for those who already have diabetes. What about the risk of cardiovascular disease? Finnish researchers followed 20,000 coffee-loving Finns for 10 years. They concluded that coffee and non-coffee drinkers shared the same risk of coronary attack or dying of heart disease. In 2012 a large German study reached the same conclusion. Later, a Norwegian study reported that older women, drinking one to three cups of coffee daily, were 24% less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than non-drinkers. For years people have worried about the effect of coffee on blood pressure, but there is no consensus on this issue. A Finnish study of 27,000 healthy men and women who took coffee revealed that after 13 years there was a 14% greater risk of hypertension. However, a Harvard study of 45,000 people, failed to link coffee with increased blood pressure. And even better news, a Swedish study revealed a decreased risk of stroke. A report in Experimental Neurobiology states that coffee appears to have a protective effect against the development of Parkinson’s Disease. The Finns love their java and those who consumed 10 or more cups daily

had an 84% decreased risk of developing this disease. In addition, those who drank six or more cups daily had a 40% decreased risk of gout. The news about cancer is good and bad. Some studies show a link to pancreatic malignancy, an increase in leukemia, stomach and bladder cancer. But other research shows protection against colon, rectal and liver cancer. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine shows those who drank at least two cups of coffee (regular or decaf) were 10 to 15% less likely to die over a 14-year period. Now the bad, bad news. Studies show that only 35% of people drink coffee black. Milk, cream and sugar add calories. Moreover, specialty shops have added significant calories to a cup of java. The best choice is skim milk or low fat milk. Or consider artificial sweeteners, cinnamon or spices that don’t add calories or fat. But whatever way you like your java you end up with a cup that contains either a low of 16 calories or a whopping 500! It’s prudent for pregnant women to limit the intake of coffee. So enjoy your cup of java. Common sense dictates that not many evils lurk in coffee unless it’s overloaded. See the web site For comments

Sudanese man finds his niche in golf world It is quite a leap from being a child soldier in the Sudan to playing golf on the manicured fairways of the Innisfail Golf Club but Maluk Ayomkok made that jump even if it took him many years to do so. The 41-year-old was more comfortable holding an AK-47 than a nine iron but after his father-inlaw introduced him to the game of golf a few years back he was hooked for life. “Back then I didn’t even know how to hold a club but he said go have fun with it,” he recalled. “So I went to the driving range and I didn’t do so good but I wasn’t discouraged.

“I saw it as a challenge.” Growing up in the Sudan was a challenge to just stay alive but being free of that life has not lessened his thirst for learning and golf is on his list. He is a fixture on the driving range at the Innisfail Golf Club under the watchful eye of head professional Jim Boomer who was impressed with Ayomkok’s raw, athletic talent. “It was fun to take that and sort of massage it a bit so he could start to notice the things that would start to cause him to be more consistent as a golfer.” Coming from a country which recently got its first nine-hole course in 2010, the game was about as foreign to Ayomkok as anything could be but he has

since learned some of the nuances this game brings out in players. Armed with an engaging personality he has no problem explaining golf through what he has learned to anyone who cares to listen and don’t be surprised if you hear a few references to players like Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. While most of us love to grab the driver and rip a few out there Ayomkok says he’s more in tune with the short game. “You can be good with your irons and you can be good with your driver but if you’re not good with your short game, well you’re not going to be very good,” he said. Like any athlete Ayomkok has a goal in mind after all the hard

work he has put into this game and that is to play golf at the highest level he can, learning from the best players he can find. “They have something you don’t know and they will show you,” he said. “And one day to teach the next generation my style. How hard was it for me and how easy I can introduce it to them.” Boomer says he has no doubt Ayomkok will become the best player he can because it seems to be in his DNA to not give into failure. “He’s certainly on track as far as his golf goes,” he said about his future as a player. “Not too many people can see what’s coming there but with that wing span and the work ethic he puts in, he’s going to be a very good player.”

So while the pro is giving him some instruction on the game of golf, the student has supplied his teacher with a different perspective on this part of the world which many of us just might take for granted on occasion. Ayomkok says he could not plan this path his life has taken but he is very grateful to be in his new country which he refers to as the closest place to heaven on earth. “In philosophy there’s no wrong argument if you can prove it and I can prove that Canada is the best place because you saw me as a soldier holding an AK-47 and now I’m all dressed (in golf attire) and not dirty or anything.” It’s hard to argue.

RDC soccer gears up for season BY JIM CLAGGETT Red Deer Express What a difference just one year can make. Just ask Red Deer College Queens soccer head coach David Colley. Last season he had a team which was comprised of three players into their fifth year of college soccer, a handful of thirdyear players mixed in with some first and second-year athletes. The Queens were a force most of the season, going to the ACAC playoffs and coming away with a bronze medal. The 2013 edition which hits the pitch is quite a bit different. “We’ve got them from all over. We’ve got them from high school soccer, we’ve got players from Ponoka, we’ve got players from Chestermere, we’ve got players from Eckville,” he said. The biggest difference might be in the fact the girls have not played together as a team for very long and with a very short pre-season Colley says this team’s secondyear players were put under some pressure right from the get-go. “They were the only ones who remember the shape of the team from last year.”

Colley says looking forward he hopes to get most of these players back in an RDC uniform next season and the transition won’t be nearly as difficult is it will be this season to get things on order. One veteran he’s counting on will be goaltender Jessie Stewart, a third-year player and he feels there will be lots of additional pressure on her to keep order on the field during games. “She’s got a year above the other vets (second years) she’s working with. But not just that, she knows the chances are going to come a little more frequently especially in the early stages of the season than they did last season,” he said. Colley says sometimes you’ll see his tender half way up the field playing sweeper in order to get to any free ball if her inexperienced front is beaten. “That’s the maturity a year on top of the second year brings and the fact she’s been trained by some very good people.” With a very young team under his watch Colley still believes a realistic goal is to make the ACAC playoff round this season and he strongly believes these girls can do it. Time will tell.

Lessons learned from coach Discipline. It’s a tough ingredient to add to your team and many a coach has lost plenty of hair and sleep trying to get his or her team to stay disciplined during a game.


CLAGGETT I had a football coach back in the day (yes it was well after leather helmets came out) who always preached to us about how devastating a penalty can be to the psyche of a team. It was his thought that while penalties happen, usually at the worst possible time, they were such momentum killers at any point of a game he urged us to avoid them at all costs. We wondered out loud just how we could do that and he laid it out for us in such a way it made sense to our young minds. He said penalties reflect one of three things. Offside and procedure showed a lack of concentration so offensive players were pressed to remember the snap count and

defensive players told to watch the ball at all times. Holding, blocking in the back and pass interference were all reflections of a lack of judgment. He felt if you were always in the right position on a play you wouldn’t have to commit any of these penalties so it was drummed into us to be in the best spot possible each play and we should work hard at making sure that happened. Lastly, taunting, personal fouls and roughing all came under the umbrella of a lack of self-control. This was a biggie in such an emotional game with a bunch of guys who were, well very emotional about the game of football. But his point was about how selfish those penalties were, how much they really hurt the team and you paid a stiff price for committing one. So when I see players taking these same penalties I can picture my former coach giving the player ‘that’ look . In the end, he felt all were correctable situations and as a team we won many games including a provincial title using that same philosophy. All along the way we took very few penalties by the way and when I got into coaching I preached the same thing. Thanks coach!

Prepping your home as summer turns to autumn Ahhhh fall, my absolute favorite time of year! I know people love summer and adore the heat but my joy is in crisp mornings snuggled into my favorite sweater drinking a pumpkin spice latte (or PSL which seems to be trending).


MECKLER Several times this summer I have looked longingly at my sweater shelf and found myself anticipating the fall when I could wear these wonderful, warm jewel-toned knits. As we start to feel a chill in the air, we can also experience a coolness in our homes – this is the season to warm up and

winterize. Give your home a sweater! Pull out the warm blankets or make a trip to your favorite home décor store to stock up on rich colours in soft fabrics. Switch your summer short pj’s for winter flannels and waffle print onsies, but please make sure they have a flap! At this time of year windows require and extra layer of curtains for light and heat retention. Gleaming hardwood would appreciate a cozy cap of an area carpet and your leather sofa would love to have a soft velvet blanket draped over its back. You can actually use your fireplace again and snuggle inside when it gets too cold to sit outside around a fire pit. Walk off mats at the front and back door help debris from being tracked into your home and can help trap some of the draft that may come in through the front door. You may find the need to warm up your

house visually instead of just turning up the furnace! Take inventory of the rooms where you spend the most time; are the surfaces in those rooms smooth and hard or soft and wavy? For example, a textured wooden dining table with stone inlays will feel much warmer than a glass top table with chrome legs. If your furniture is smooth (such as leather) try adding some knobby, fluffy toss cushions to increase sound absorption. If the room has hard reflective surfaces it can echo causing the room to feel much colder than it actually is; adding texture and depth will help kill the chill. If you are renovating or building your dream space, now is the time to add electric floor heating to those cold spaces. When you rise in the morning and step onto your warm pre-heated bathroom floor your toes will thank you and you will be much less

inclined to run for that tiny thermostat button to warm up your morning ritual. Often just a few minutes of heat under your tile/carpet or hardwood is enough to make the room bearable without having to heat up the entire house. Under floor heat mats are available in every shape and size, customizable to any room and run on a simple electrical thermostat. For the thrifty among you, slippers are still the least expensive and most portable option. The seasons change so quickly before you know it you will be furiously digging in your closet looking for light mitts and your fall trench coat before you stroll into the beautiful fall palette sipping your favorite spicy pumpkin beverage. Plan to have something warm to cuddle up with at home once you are back from that walk!

The interest rate party for borrowers is almost over. Following almost five years of historically low rates, we’ve see a lot of upward movement in the cost of money.


TURCOTTE Most people watch the central banks for indications that rates are about to take off. But that’s not where the real action is for fixed-rate mortgage holders. This actually takes place in the rarefied world of the bond market, where institutional traders like banks and pension plans operate. By the time the Bank of Canada gets around to acting, the bond market will have left it in the dust. In order to save as much money as possible, a proactive approach is recommended when dealing with rising interest rates. Budget for future plans. Many borrowers opt for the maximum mortgage for which they can qualify. The problem with this approach is that life happens. It’s important to plan ahead for future changes such as starting a family, maternity leave, relationship changes, health issues, career changes, and so on. Secondly, ensure you would still qualify for your mortgage if rates continue to increase. For instance, if the five-year rate

reached 5.5%, could you still afford the payment? We can sit down and run the numbers to ensure we build a buffer zone into your mortgage. Use your prepayment options. This will enable you to increase your payment in relation to the increased rate. For instance, if you have a five-year fixed mortgage at 2.89% and rates increase to 3.49%, increase your monthly (or bi-weekly) payment to the equivalent. That way, you won’t experience ‘rate shock’ when your mortgage is up for renewal. It’s important to remember that any extra payments you can make will go straight towards paying down your principal faster, which means you will be mortgage-free quicker. It may be worth your while to take advantage of a free mortgage check-up before rates increase any further. This will help you determine if it makes sense, for instance, to renew your mortgage a few months early if this means being able to lock into a new five-year term before rates increase even more. With rates on the rise, it’s more important than ever to take advantage of mortgage brokering services, since we can shop different lenders and advise which ones not only have the best rates, but also which lenders have the best prepayment options and mortgage offerings to suit your individual needs.
