ATB Financial is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and marked the occasion last Friday with special events at Sylvan Lake and each of its other branches. During a barbecue at the Sylvan Lake branch, manager Nancy Numan announced a $1,000 donation to Red Deer West 4-H Club. News of the donation was made public at the same time as other branches in the province announced support for various community groups. “Today — right now, in fact — simultaneously in 301 ATB communities across Alberta, we are proud to announce that community investments totalling $236,000 are being distributed in celebration of our 75th anniversary,” said Numan. “I’m happy to announce that in our community, ATB Sylvan Lake is pleased to support Red Deer West 4-H Club with a gift of $1,000.” Reid and Parker Depalme of the club were on hand to accept the donation, and were grateful for the support. Reid felt it was “pretty cool” to receive a donation that will help fund the club’s various endeavours. Mother Dana Depalme said the club is fortunate to receive so much support from the community, and said the club also gives much back. Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta is just one of a number of organizations the club has supported in recent years. As part of ATB’s celebrations, 75 spruce seedlings were given to guests. “As a symbolic gesture of appreciation to everyone

Legacy art project unveiled during grand opening BY STEVE DILLS SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

Funding for the project was received through a Building Communities through Art and Heritage program under the Department of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. In addition funding was also received through a Community Initiatives program from the province’s culture department. During opening ceremonies for the building, MP Earl Dreeshen said it was “an amazing well thought out building, classic in design. Something we can all be proud of. It’s going to bring more and more accolades to a very thriving community.” Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA Kerry Towle reflected on the growth and prosperity of Sylvan Lake, noting she’s here two or three times a week for special events. “I’m overwhelmed, this is quite stately,” she said of the building. She’d spent the day at the Alberta Legislature time capsule and noted after 100 years that building is described as a ‘piece of art’. Mayor Susan Samson thanked town staff particularly for accomplishing a “huge move” into the building. “We’re so proud to be here in this building which came in on time and on budget … This council, this staff, needs this kind of building to deliver services that this community deserves.” Reflecting on history of the previous centre of government, she said that a part of that building served as a school before being moved to its current location and serving as town hall since 1962. “We were due for a new building.” Samson added, the building belongs to the community’s residents. “We will do things together in this foyer, have teas, dances, celebrate together because it is your building.” The building was open for people to tour. Continued on page 12

One of the highlights of the grand opening at the new Municipal Government Building was unveiling of a Centennial legacy art project in council chambers. “This particular legacy project creates a remembrance that will endure for many years to come and at the same time involves our community’s young people in learning a little of our history and our story,” said Chris Lust, speaking on behalf of Sylvan Lake Centennial Celebrations Task Force and the subcommittee involved in the project. Grade 7 students from the town’s four schools (École Fox Run School, École Mother Teresa Catholic School, Lighthouse Christian Academy and Sylvan Meadows Adventist School) as well as home schoolers were invited to create a two or three dimensional art piece based on one of 10 different themes. The themes were Helping Hands, Culture and Recreation, Early Settlers, Landmarks, At Work, Transportation, Agriculture, At Play, Milestones and Celebrations and Enjoying the Lake. Submitted artwork was clustered around a photo reminiscent of the theme, on a background of water. The centre of the mural features parents in old fashioned bathing suits looking at youngsters in current day attire building a sand castle. “Researchers have found that knowing our own family’s stories and knowing those of our community helps develop resilience and emotional strength,” said Lust. “We hope those two characteristics are also part of this project’s legacy.” Metro Graphics of Calgary won the commission to design the project and work with local students. Sylvan Lake & District Archives added historical photos to create a centre for each of the ten themes. While not all artwork could fit on the mural, all submissions are preserved in memory books and the signatures of all students are “The Clinic recorded in the sand at the bottom of the creation. “We hope you will find its location here in council chambers a fitting location, reminding us of our roots as one student chose to do a letter to our first council chairperson, Mr. Grimson.

Fire safety message important for youngsters Each week a column of the Sylvan Lake News records calls answered by our volunteer firefighters. At all hours of the day or night, they are paged with a report that could be as minor as malfunctioning alarms and as major as significant houses or buildings burning. These people train for all types of circumstances. They know their way around our town and rural districts. They know how to use the equipment which can extinguish fires or cut people from wrecked vehicles. They’re prepared. This week, the firefighters presented a message to over 1,000 students in Sylvan Lake’s Kindergarten to Grade 3 classes about being prepared. For the second year in a row they hosted Juno award nominee Mary Lambert with her Sing Out Fire Safety show. We sat through one of the four presentations and were

impressed with the messages she imparted. Matches and lighters are tools, not toys, she instructed the youngsters through her interactive performance. Perhaps the most important message though, was the five steps of The Great Escape. She implored the youngsters to talk to their parents about what they’d learned. We hope these students took heart and have worked with their parents and guardians to develop a plan to get out of their homes safely in the event that a fire erupts. The five step plan starts with drawing a floor plan of your home, including every room, and then marking two exits out of each room and how to get out of the house. “Get out and stay out until you know it’s safe to go back in,” she encouraged, telling students not to go back for their favourite toys, their pets, or any other reason.

Another of the steps involves setting up a meeting place outside the house where all family members can gather and ensure they’re all safe if forced to leave. Lambert’s message also included the need to practice fire evacuation plans so that everybody knows exactly what to do if they’re startled awake in the middle of the night by smoke detectors. And through another song she asked students to all go home and check their smoke detectors and alarms to make sure they’re working. As we approach Fire Prevention Week, this is a good time to talk to your children about your escape routes, the dangers of fire and to plan in the case of an unforeseen

Canada’s breeding stock is destined to play a great part in rebuilding devastated Europe’s livestock and horses for farm power. It is estimated that horses of Britain, Belgium and Holland have been reduced by half, in Russia by one-third and that only a

Around 1911, Canadian Northern Western Railway was very active building stations in Sylvan Lake, Eckville and Leslieville. CNWR, which later became Canadian National Railway, gave notice of looking into building an enormous summer hotel at Sylvan Lake, comparable to Banff Springs Hotel. The plan was later abandoned at the onset of World War I. Alberta Central Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway and CNR were competitive forces transporting coal from the east side of the Rockies to various markets in Alberta. Coal was a necessity for survival especially during winter months. In building a railway west of Red Deer, CPR built a line south of CNR, but building the line on wet lands close to Cygnet Lake and beyond was difficult.

Germany by her plundering is believed to have even more than before the war. ♦ ♦ ♦ On two nights light frosts have been recorded in town — the first on the night of the 18th and the second on the night of the 26th. Dahlias and other tender garden plants have survived, however, and there are still many lovely blooms to be seen. ♦ ♦ ♦ Sylvan Lake high and public schools will re-open for the fall term on Monday, October 2. ♦ ♦ ♦ Alterations are in progress at the Lakeview Garage to provide more stock room and office accommodation.

CNR became the surviving railway even to this day. In the early years of the twentieth century, Sylvan Lake developed many summer resort cabins. Calgarians considered Sylvan as their first choice. Edmontonians enjoyed the proximity of Pigeon Lake, Wabamun Lake, Lac Ste. Anne, Cooking Lake, and many others, but the water quality of Sylvan Lake was the draw. A boxed story in Sylvan Lake News of July 1951 was headed “A Problem and a Solution”. It pointed out that next to the federal parks at Banff and Jasper, Sylvan Lake had the greatest number of summer visitors of any resort in the province. Early slogans for the lake were “The Bathtub of Alberta”, “Beauty Spot of Alberta” and “A Town For All Seasons”. It may have been said that the lake was “The Jewel of Central Alberta”.

A record harvest in this area is piling up in farmers’ fields because of a shortage of box cars, particularly on the CNR line which runs west from Mirror to Nordegg. A check by elevator agents along the line shows that 294 cars of grain have been moved by CPR, while only 29 cars have been moved by CNR. ♦ ♦ ♦ Mr. Walter McNary, District Agriculturalist, wrote to our office with an explanation of Miss. Andreef’s sweet peas. The sweet pea had five

blossoms on one stem, three of them pink and two white. Mr. McNary wrote: “In talking with Mr. Harvey Allen, Horticulturalist at the Lacombe Experimental Farm, I checked with him about your unusual sweet pea. Mr. Allen said that this is rare, but would suspect that it was caused by a virus in two of the flowers causing them to turn white.” ♦ ♦ ♦ A meeting of C.G.I.T. was held in Church Hall recently and officers elected were: Leader Mrs. Bill Tennant, Mrs. B.

VIEWPOINTS

Proper boat launch needed on south end Dear Editor, As a resident of the Summer Village of Half Moon Bay, over the years, we have been very outspoken to the counties of Red Deer and Lacombe regarding the facilities at the end of Range Road 21 and the unofficial boat launch which has developed there. I would like to thank Red Deer County for their understanding of the problems with gar-

bage, vandalism and toilet facilities. This summer they have provided garbage removal and clean up on a regular basis, even though they have no tax base in the area. As a boater myself, I understand the problems facing the boating community, and have had conversations with people using the road. It is apparent that most of the people there are from either Sylvan Lake or Red Deer. The many letters

to the editor are evident of the frustration of these people at the lack of proper facilities for boat launching and spending a nice day on the lake with family or friends. In addition to the lack of a proper boat launch, once you are on the lake there are no washroom facilities which can be accessed by boat, which leaves the few flat sandy areas where there are trees to be used for this purpose.

Lodges, cabins, hotels and water Continued from page 4 In the article, “The Development of Sylvan Lake as a Summer Resort”, by Dr. Bill Parsons, he states, “in 1974 Eli Murto obtained permission to develop a strip of land with a single row of lots on the lake two miles west of Half Moon Bay. This was named Kuusamo Krest. This was the last subdivision before county councils put a moratorium on subdivision along the lake front. It was considered that further building along the shore would disrupt the ecology of the lake. With time, Sylvan Lake has had a gradual increase in population. In 1916, as a village, the population was 115. As a town, Sylvan Lake, between the years, 1956, 1976 and 1979, the population increased by 2,231. During the years 1993 to 2012 there was a dramatic increase of 8,230. The latest census, albeit somewhat lacking, is 13,015. Many tenants were unavailable to the count so one can assume a figure of 13,700. Addition of summer villages and backlot residences would add four to five thousand people although this is a rough estimate. With the economic driver of oil and gas industry, it’s possible to envision a population of all of Sylvan Lake to be 30-40,000 by 2025. This increase is somewhat alarming regarding the prize, the water quality of the lake. Far more stringent rules on developments may be the answer. Riparian areas and forest are being threatened by poor land use in the watershed. In the publication, “Living Near Urban Lakes”, by Sarah Weaver Kipp, she states “the edge where land and

water meet is one of the richest, most productive ecological zones on earth. That is why shorelines are called “the Ribbon of Life”. In a natural landscape 10 per cent of rainwater flows overland, while a developed landscape with mowed, fertilized lawn has 30 per cent or more flow overland surface runoff with impending erosion probably with phosphorus and nitrogen draining into the streams and lake. Riparian areas just back of the water are ideal for arctic and fox willows, dogwoods, cotoneaster and caragana, most of which can be trimmed seasonally. In Maude Barlow’s publication, “Our Great Lakes Commons”, she states that scientists have blamed the proliferation of zebra and quagga mussels for the die off of large numbers of migratory birds over the Great Lakes. Loons are especially threatened. Boaters in and out of the province should routinely inspect their boats. In closing the writer suggests people read the following: “The Shoreline Primer” published by Fisheries and Oceans Canada and “Living By Water” from Nature Alberta. The writer would like to give thanks to Sylvan Lake Archives, Marion Thompson, Steve Dills of Sylvan Lake News and Dave Brunner. Evan Verchomin is a director at large of Sylvan Lake Watershed Stewardship Society and a resident of the Summer Village of Birchcliff.

It appears clear that this problem should be resolved and while I realize that there are studies presently being conducted, I urge the various authorities to come to an early resolution in creating a facility on the south end of the lake, in order for the lake to be kept clean and useful for recreation for years to come. George Johnston, Half Moon Bay

Questions posed for mayoralty, councillor candidates Dear Editor, A few questions have come to mind that people might like to pose to the mayoral and incumbent council candidates at their debates. I won’t be here to ask them so I thought I would put them out to the public. Question #1: How did the new civic administration building go from a budget item of $5.4 million to $7.98 million, when we were in an economic downturn? Question #2: The Strong Families, Strong Communities

town took on the contract for the washrooms in the provincial park and there are rumours that there was a $1 million cost overrun that the town had to pay. Is this true? If the town didn’t pay it, who did? Question #3: What was the value in allowing the last open piece of shoreline in Sylvan Lake, the marina property, become a private housing project? Question #4: Councillor Grimson is quoted as saying, “A major consideration is we need to find an alternate source of water. We’re within 5,000 population of maxing out.” When are we going to start hearing discussion regarding this urgent matter? What are the expected costs? Where will the funding come from for “further studies, research”, as well as actual pipelines, as Grimson states. Question #5: Really from me to you: Did you know that if the town borrowed $10 million for a new arena/ community center the payment based on 3.866% over a 20 year term would be $722,557 per year? Also if an additional borrowing for the new fire hall would be $3.3 million based on 10 years at 3% would be an annual payment of $385,920? The two proposed borrowings are more than $1 million a year in debt repayment. Bryan Lambertson, Sylvan Lake

Over $40,000 raised for Sylvan Lake resident battling bone cancer BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS A young Sylvan Lake resident diagnosed last year with a form of bone cancer has the full support of the community as she continues her treatment in the United States. That support was evident when more than $40,000 was raised at a benefit auction and concert for Mikeala Davidson, 18, at Gospel Chapel Sunday night. “It was awesome,” said Mikeala’s father, Gary Davidson. “The support is amazing.” At press time, the total amount raised was still being calculated, but Davidson estimated it to be around $42,000, with more donations still to come. The money was raised through live and silent auctions, and ticket sales for a concert by The Boom Chucka Boys later in the evening. “There’s so many groups, companies and individuals in Sylvan Lake that were there bidding on stuff and had donated,” said Davidson. “It was just unbelievable.” In June 2012, Mikeala was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma, a bone cancer found almost exclusively in growing children. Following surgery on her affected leg, and months of chemotherapy, three tumours were removed after spots on

her lungs were discovered. Gary Davidson said there is nothing more doctors in Canada can do for his daughter, with the exception of surgically removing tumours, if any show up. Her treatment is now continuing in Arizona, where she will go every three months for the first year. She is due back in late November. Davidson said any funds not used in Mikeala’s treatment will be given to another family in a similar situation. Sunday’s event ended up being much larger than he and his family had initially anticipated. It was organized after The Boom Chucka Boys lead singer, and Davidson family friend, Ryan Langlois, approached the Davidson family with the idea of his band performing a benefit concert. What began as a “little benefit concert”, expected to be attended by a group of family and friends, quickly became a community event, with plenty of people offering their support. “When people heard about it, just over the last two months or so, they have just kept donating and donating,” said Davidson. More than 80 items were received for the fundraiser’s silent auction. “We thought if we get 20, that would be great, and in the end, there was 82, with people still bringing stuff while we were doing it.” He said he, Mikeala, and his wife Pam put a “fair amount of time” into organizing the event, but received plenty of support from neighbours, friends, family and members of Gospel Chapel. Auction items often simply showed up at the family’s door, he added. Donations are still being accepted, and may be made at the Taylor Plaza Servus Credit Union in Red Deer, where an account is set up under Mikeala Davidson’s name. Further information is available by contacting Pam Davidson at 403-352-2972.

Full house at community centre for Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

Sylvan Lake News editor Steve Dills was recognized at the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast for his commitment to community news, and presented a plaque by Jim Rilling.

The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast once again proved a popular event in town, and attracted about 160 community members who together enjoyed a morning of prayer, food and music. Presented by Sylvan Lake Ministerial Association, the event was being held for the fifth consecutive year. Mayor Susan Samson offered opening remarks. “I want to thank the ministerial association for all the work that they’ve put in to making this such a fabulous event,” she said. “While I am thanking them, I also want to say it was a great community picnic that you held (on Sept. 8), and I’m hoping that you will make that an annual event.” Samson felt the morning provided an ideal start to the day, and hoped its meaning would be

SOLD-OUT FASHION SHOW ONE OF MANY EVENTS AIMED AT AREA SENIORS BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

It was a full house for the Ladies Fashion Show and Dessert Night at Sylvan Lake Seniors Centre Sept. 18. More than 80 women attended the event, which sold out in advance. Clothing from Cobb’s Clothing and Eclectica Fashions was modelled by several women, who included members of Sylvan Lake Seniors Association. “It was just a fun evening for the ladies,” said association program co-ordinator Maryan Weenink. “They had done it once a couple of years ago, so it’s the second time that we’ve done one.” Items from Value Drug Mart were also sold at the event, as were those from Twigz Creations, which supports African artists through the sale of handmade fair-trade products. Weenink is unsure whether the fashion show will take place again next year, but

assured that the seniors association offers plenty of other exciting events throughout the year. Becoming a member can open up a door to a variety of fun events and activities, she said. “We always want new people,” she said. “It’s a great place to socialize and meet new people, and it keeps the seniors active here.” The objective of the association, she added, is to “provide for the recreation, social well being and artistic expression of seniors of Sylvan Lake and area, and to contribute to the education and social well being of the community”. Although membership is not required to participate in, or attend, association events and activities, it is encouraged, and comes with a number of benefits, including access to members-only events. The association organizes special events in Sylvan Lake as well as excursions to other parts of Central Alberta. Examples of the

latter include a trip to Wildlife Museum in Sundre earlier this month, and trip planned to a dinner theatre in Ponoka next month. Regularly weekly events are also held, and include bible studies, luncheons and ‘sit and be fit’ classes. More than 150 people currently hold membership with the club, said Weenink. Potential members must be 55 years or older and pay a $10 annual membership fee to join. “We would love to have more people enjoy in the fun and fellowship at the centre,” said Weenink. “It’s a great place to be.” Newsletters and monthly calendars are mailed to association members. Further membership information, as well as information pertaining to programs and events is available by calling Weenink at 403-887-5428, or by visiting the Town of Sylvan Lake’s website at www.sylvanlake.ca and clicking the seniors services link under the family and community tab.

HEY DUDE, THE WAR’S OVER! By Jamie McDonald Lead Pastor Gospel Chapel

You have to admire the man. During World War II, a Japanese lieutenant named HirooOnoda was ordered not to surrender to the enemy, and he obeyed those orders… even30 years after the war had ended! Onoda was deployed on the Philippine Islands withthe promise of being collected once the war was over. When the war ended, Japansurrendered, and papers were dropped on the island explaining to their soldiers thatthey should come out of the jungle. Onoda, however, thought the leaflets were a trick,so he ignored them. He continued living in the jungle from 1945 to 1974 until he was discovered by a young Japanese explorer, who informed the loyal lieutenant that thewar was in fact over. But even then Onoda wouldn’t believe it. He said he would only surrender after receiving approval from his former commanding officer. Fortunately for the lieutenant, his commanding officer was still alive and was brought to the island toexplain the situation. It was then and only then that Onoda finally accepted the truth. There’s a truth here for us as well. Lieutenant Onoda missed out on many, many years of life, love and laughter because he remained hidden and isolated, making things harder on himself than they had to be. A lot of people still do this today. They feel that ifthey hide from God, ignore

Him and try to live life on their own, they will be better off.They just can’t believe that God loves them and actually wants to be their friend. But listen to what the Bible says: “Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sightby faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilegewhere we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory” (Romans 5:1-2, NLT). Consider the words of Jesus himself: “I no longer call youslaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since Ihave told you everything the Father told me.” And then He adds, “You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father willgive you whatever you ask for, using my name” (John 15:15-16, NLT). Why hide from God? He already knows the worst things about you. He sees all the warts and pimples of your life, all the skeletons in the closet of your heart. Yet He offers you His love, His peace, and a place at His table. In other words, He’s looking to be your friend... if you’ll let Him. The leaflets have been dropped. The war’s over. God invites you to come out of your jungle of sin and shame, heartache and disappointment. Don’t wait. Today is the day! 4308 - 50 Avenue 403-887-1401

Art project grand opening

Continued from page 3 Lacombe County Reeve Ken Wigmore presented the town with a beautiful sunset painting. Also on display in an upstairs hallway was the donation by Sylvan Lake Quilters. The four themed quilts portray the landscape of Sylvan Lake featuring the beach front. Spearheaded by Joyce Thrush, Chloe Lester and Gloria Armstrong, the organization brought in Patty Morris to do a workshop on landscapes. Artist Jack Smalley was enlisted to draw a scene of the lake and area and then quilters created the four seasons of that scene. Spring was completed by Chloe Lester, Sheila Muzychka and Rachelle Pare; summer by Gloria Armstrong, Wendy Morris and Esther Hopland; fall by Trisha Watts, Pam Schiels, Lana Laqua and Debbie Mieske; and winter by Joyce Thrush, Mary Lynn Brown and Marion Robin. “As a sign of how important the downtown core is, this building stayed in the downtown.”

A Centennial legacy art project was unveiled the council chambers by MP Earl Dreeshen and artist Serena Scott during the grand opening of the town’s new Municipal Government Building last Thursday. The artwork was created with submissions by over 160 Grade 7 students — their signatures are all in the sand at the bottom of the picture. While all submissions weren’t included in the mural, they’re all included in memory books that will be available to peruse at the town hall, library, archives and schools. STEVE DILLS PHOTOS

Christmas spirit abounds with festival planners BY STEVE DILLS SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

Less than 60 sleeps from now, Santa Claus will make his annual arrival in Sylvan Lake during the evening lighted parade and then at the second annual Spirit of Sylvan Yuletide Festival and Farmers’ Market, Nov. 29 and 30.

Committee members have been working diligently to make this year’s festival even more entertaining and exciting that the inaugural event. As well, proceeds will benefit Sylvan Lake’s Urgent Care initiative. Last year over $12,000 was donated to the worthy cause. One of the highlights for youngsters last year was Skate with Mascots

at the arena. The committee is looking to build on the success by making an early plea to all business owners who have mascots to contact the committee and let us know who’s available to attend. The skate takes place Saturday afternoon (Nov. 30) from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Contact Steve Dills at 403-887-2331. Another highlight last year was

the tremendous participation of businesses, said chairperson Graham Parsons. “Thanks to their sponsorship this will be a free event for families of Sylvan Lake and area.” While the sales committee has been busy contacting businesses, if they’ve missed you it’s not too late to get involved in this community event. Examples of opportunities include decorating a Christmas tree or donating a large item for a live auction; decorating wreaths of mini trees or providing silent auction items, contributing raffle items, sponsoring individual events such as

Lots of activity during cultural celebration BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

Brianne Hughes impressed with a solo performance.

Ainsley McCallum was one of several musicians who performed at the concert hosted by The House of Music on Saturday.

Alberta Culture Days kept many Sylvan Lake residents busy during the weekend, and provided no shortage of things for them to do and see. Events kicked off at the library last Friday, before House of Music students showed their talents at Lions Legacy Park Saturday afternoon. At the same time, Sylvan Lake Community Partners’ Association held an art gallery open house, as well as cupcake art with Mary Grace. Those curious to see the inside of the Municipal Government Building were given a chance to explore it, and, in the process, view a number of centennial-related art projects and pieces. Also inside the Municipal Government Building were the contents of Sylvan Lake Peer Support Group’s time capsule, compiled and buried in 1988. “The Town of Sylvan Lake had asked the youth group at that time called Peer Support to leave a message for the future,” said Michelle (Coppens) Wright at Lions Legacy Park, describing the time capsule’s origin. “I find that there is a parallel today when we see all the youth around us sharing their gifts. The Town of Sylvan Lake, 25 years ago, did exactly the same thing.” A video compiled by the group was displayed inside council chambers, as was a 1988 edition of Sylvan Lake News and other items included in the capsule. The Doll Sisters performed at Memorial Presbyterian Church later that night, before Culture Days wrapped up with a performance by Sylvan Lake Seniors Drama Troupe at the seniors centre. The first Alberta Culture Days was held in 2008 as a one-day event. It has since grown to be three days in length, with events held throughout the province. “We discover, celebrate, and participate in culture 365 days a year,” said Minister of Culture Heather Klimchuk, in a media release. “All this enthusiasm explodes during Alberta Culture Days.”

“Absolutely rich” conversation about early childhood issues

CODY’S DRAMA STUDENTS EXPLORED CANCER STORIES TO CREATE RUN VIDEO

BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

BY SANDY BEXON SPECIAL TO SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

A community conversation hosted by Sylvan Lake and Area Early Childhood Development Coalition Sept. 17 resulted in productive feedback being provided for a new provincial initiative aiming to benefit children. ‘Together We Raise Tomorrow’, announced by the provincial government earlier this year, aims to engage the public in gathering information on how early childhood development in Alberta can be improved. Poverty reduction, and seeing a Children’s Charter created are also goals. About a dozen members of the coalition, parents, community members and representatives of various organizations met at the community centre. “The conversation was absolutely rich,” said coalition project co-ordinator Debbie Oostindie. “Everyone had a lot of incredible feedback on what we were discussing in regard to early childhood development.” Questions posed to meeting attendees sought information on their awareness of early childhood programs and services in the community, as well as ways in which they felt young children can “best learn, grow and thrive”. Other aspects of early childhood development, including ways of distributing information, were discussed. Oostindie said most of the feedback indicated a desire to see improvements made to the area’s already existing early childhood resources. “Most people in the room were happy with what Sylvan Lake provides for parents or caregivers with children of early childhood development age range,” she said. “They had quite a few suggestions, though, in building on what we already have.” One of those people was Beverly Hill of Healthy Families. “We have a lot, but it’s not working as well as it should,” she said. In June, communities around Alberta began

Drama 20/30 students at École H. J. Cody School in Sylvan Lake set out to motivate a few more students to take part in the school’s annual Terry Fox Run, but ended up igniting a whole new surge of interest in the entire Terry Fox movement. “Our teachers came up with the idea of creating a video, so we started researching cancer statistics and some of us started sharing personal stories,” said Grade 11 student Ryan Bredy. “It became very clear that most of us have been affected by cancer — I’ve had multiple family members affected by cancer. It made us all motivated to dig a little deeper.” Under the direction of their teacher, Jacqui Renwick, the entire class brainstormed things they wanted to see in the video. They broke the tasking into groups, with some conducting research through Canadian Cancer Society, some sketching a script and others gathering personal stories and organizing camera equipment. In the end, the timeline from the idea to the finished six minute video was just over one day. “This is a highly engaged group of students,” said Renwick. “This is a class where every student feels like an important part of the group. They are respectful of one another and they were keen right from the start. It seemed that as the stories started to unfold and the personal challenges emerged, they began to feel like they could really make a difference through the video. They were dealing with a sensitive topic and put their hearts into it and handled it beautifully. They should be very proud of themselves — I’m very proud of all of them.” The students wanted to be discreet with the personal stories of the struggles and loss that schoolmates shared, and chose to only circulate the video within the school instead of making it public. It is comprised of stats about cancer and information about Terry Fox, but at its core are short interviews with several students who name the person they will be devoting their school’s Terry Fox Run to. Most have lost a loved one to cancer or are currently supporting a family member as they fight the disease. Three of the students interviewed were dealing with close family members who had just been diagnosed that week, while others were running for one of their fellow students who passed two years ago. “It made us feel really connected when we stood together to talk about this,” said Grade 11 student Brianne Hughes. “I think that some people just didn’t think it was real, or that cancer would ever happen to them or someone they love. We wanted people to know a lot of their peers have already been impacted by it. We also wanted to remind them about the legacy that Terry Fox left for all of us, and now people in the school are really interested in this year’s Terry Fox Run. “None of us students were even born when he ran his Marathon of Hope and most of our parents were only teenagers, but my dad remembers crying when he watched it on the news. I think every Canadian should be very proud of Terry Fox. He’s a Canadian legend and a big part of our history, and people participate in the Terry Fox Run all over the world now. He wasn’t just a Canadian, he was someone dying of cancer and that affects everyone.”

Among attendees at the early childhood community conversation at the community centre last Tuesday night were Debbie Oostindie of Sylvan Lake and Area Early Childhood Development Coalition; Beverly Hill of Healthy Families and the coalition; Sharon Nielsen of Lighthouse Christian Academy; Gabrielle Blais of Alberta Health Services; and Cindy Adekat of the coalition. STUART FULLARTON hosting conversations to gather feedback for the initiative. The information will be compiled into a report before being sent to the government. Oostindie is looking forward to hearing results from all of the reports compiled, and hopes it will impact the government’s approach to early childhood development. The meeting took place nearly a year after results of the province’s Early Childhood Development Mapping Initiative became available. Results of that initiative — which measured development in physical health and well being; emotional maturity; social competence; language and thinking skills; and communication skills and general knowledge — revealed that Sylvan Lake and Area results in each of the five areas evaluated weren’t as high as many would have hoped. One particular area of concern was communications skills and general knowledge, in which 41.32 per cent of kindergarten children were found to be experiencing either difficulty

or great difficulty. “Most people were quite surprised that that was lower than the provincial average,” said Oostindie. “That has been a surprise to the coalition and to people in groups where I’ve been sharing the information.” Meetings such as the one in Sylvan Lake, however, and similar environments allowing for community feedback, are a start in improving results found in the mapping initiative, according to Oostindie. Laurie Lafortune, Zone 4 community development co-ordinator for the mapping project, said the news wasn’t all bad, however. Sylvan Lake and area is below the provincial average for children experiencing great difficulties in at least one of the areas of development, with 26.45 per cent as opposed to the province’s 26.96. “That’s looking on the positive side,” she said. “But if more than one in four young children are having developmental difficulties, we need to address that. “That’s a lot of children.”

Peewee Bears overpowered Olds to earn second win of season Two more players joined the team this week. One of them has experience with another team from out of town. “That’s certainly going to make a difference for us,” said Rambaut. “We’ve had an extra week with a couple of newer people, and they’re really coming into their own. “They’re improving every day at practice.” Having more players available is necessary to cover the inevitable injuries and illnesses that arrive at this part of the season, he added. Being prepared and staying in good condition is highly important. “The basic skills will come to the fore as the weather gets colder and the ground gets harder, so the physical and mental toughness to make it through to the end of the season increases,” he said. “It’s a good test for them and a good test for us as coaches.” The Bears take on Red Deer Hornets at H. J. Cody field at 10 a.m. Saturday.

BY STUART FULLARTON SYLVAN LAKE NEWS

Sylvan Lake Bears peewee football team enjoyed another successful outing Saturday, defeating Olds 14-0 to make it two wins out of three games played so far this season. Head coach Garnet Rambaut was pleased with the way his team controlled play throughout the entire game, and felt the win did much to boost team morale. “(Olds) did have a little success against us in sporadic plays, but for the most part, we were able to sustain some drives,” he said. The Bears were the author of their own misfortune on a couple of occasions, he added. “We got down to the one-yard line and weren’t able to punch it in, and we probably could have scored at least two more touchdowns, but for the most part I was really pleased with them.” Rambaut said confidence among his players is high, but falls short of complacency. “Things change so quickly at this level,” he said. “We work (the players) very hard, and even at half time when we were talking with our guys in the end zone, we stressed that this game was far from over. “It can change so quickly, and there’s always an area of the game that needs improvement.” Keeping that in mind, Rambaut is optimistic about his team’s chances of achieving further success this season as his roster continues to grow.

five games undefeated. Defensive co-ordinator Dave Berg felt the win against Drumheller set his players up nicely for playoffs. “It was just overall a really good, positive game, and a good building game for developing some of the aspects that we wanted to strengthen and get ready for playoffs with,” he said. A strong start helped the Lions on Saturday, with Justin Fedun running and scoring “just about at will”, according to Berg. A couple of nervous moments from the Lions gave hope to Drumheller. However, the Lions managed to see out the rest of the game. “We struggled a little bit with the nerves and so on at first, but we settled in and continued on,” said Berg. Patrick Bennette did well filling in for starting quarterback Michael Smyth, who sat out the game against Drumheller, Berg added. He also singled out Caleb Johnson for praise, saying Johnson had an

“absolute monster game”. “He was just absolutely everywhere, and the whole defence played really well, particularly in the first half.” Tristen Koller made several important tackles, despite playing with an injured knee. The Lions were scheduled to play this Saturday against Olds. That game will not go ahead, however, as Olds withdrew from the league due to insufficient numbers. With at least two weeks off, the Bears are now preparing themselves for their next challenge, as they wait to find out who they’ll face in playoffs. Berg said their next game could be as far as three weeks away, depending on how the playoff schedule pans out. Exhibition games, to keep his players active during the break, are being planned. “It would be nice to get something in there.” Information on the Lions’ next game will be posted on Sylvan Lake Minor Football Association’s website at slmfa.com.

H. J. Cody Lakers football squad almost won a game where they weren’t even supposed to be close, against Lindsay Thurber Raiders last Friday. With 12 seconds left, the game was tied at 10 and Aden Smaill attempted a 42-yard field goal for the Lakers. The ball sailed about a yard wide of the uprights and the opposition booted it back out of the end zone to avoid being caught for a point. “It was an exciting finish on the last play,” said coach Jeremy Braitenback. “We’ had a good game plan and executed it for the most part,” he said. “We weren’t supposed to be close, but we almost won. I think we’re on the right path.” The team demonstrated “much improved discipline” taking almost no penalties. “It was a great effort by the defence in only allowing ten points,” Braitenback added. Smaill kicked a field goal, Landon Rosene scored a touch down and Cam Lee booted a convert for the Lakers’ scoring. Rosene carried the ball 24 times for 112 yards. The Lakers play at Lacombe tonight (Thursday) and at Stettler next Wednesday (Oct. 9) before starting league and provincial playoffs. The team has a league record of one win, one loss and a tie and is sitting in tied with Lindsay Thurber for second place in Pool A of the Central Alberta High School Football League. Rosene is in a five way tie for second spot in scoring with 18 points and leads the league in rushing with 524 yards on 64 carries.

A Sylvan Lake man is facing fraud and theft charges following a five month RCMP investigation. RCMP received a complaint from Red Flame Industries Inc. in May reporting a former manager had stolen approximately $71,000 from the company while employed by it. The allegations revolved around both personal purchases made with a company credit card and manipulating the company payroll to pay himself more than he was entitled to receive, said RCMP Cpl. Kevin Halwa in a news release. The offences occurred between June 28, 2011 and Feb. 25, 2013. Sean Keith Brouillette, 43, of Sylvan Lake, has been charged with one count of theft over $5,000 and one count of fraud over $5,000. He has been released on a $25,000 no deposit recognizance by a Justice of the Peace and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court Oct. 31st.
