Rimoka holds organizational meeting, housing project still looks positive By Treena Mielke The organizational meeting of the Rimoka Housing Authority held Nov. 6 saw Paul McLauchlin reinstated as chairman and mayor Rick Pankiw and town councillor Mathew Jaycox as town of Rimbey representatives on the board. Bryce Liddle from Ponoka County Div. 1 is Rimoka’s deputy chair. Representing the town of Ponoka is Mayor Rick Bonnett and town councillor Tim Falkiner. Dave
MacPherson represents the Ponoka Legion. Sharon Mickla is the director of client services and Denis Beesley is the president of Bethany Group. McLauchlin said he is pleased with the “energetic and enthusiastic” board. He noted the board discussed the aging in place facility proposed for Rimbey, adding he is encouraged by a conversation he had with Tim Morrison, Chief of Staff for Municipal Affairs Minister, Doug Griffiths.

“Municipal affairs is looking at 100 per cent of the funding,” he said. “That is a huge win for the town of Rimbey.” McLauchlin said the Rimbey housing project is a priority for municipal affairs who is ready to refocus after dealing with the flooding in southern Alberta. Earlier Denis Beesley said a revised proposal suggests renovating a portion of the existing facility for seniors’ use as well as building a new facility to accommodate
those in need of an aging in place facility. McLauchlin said the existing lodge is owned by the province. He said negotiations are still ongoing regarding Ponoka County’s purchase of 8.5 acres of land in Johnson’s Estates located northwest of the Rimbey Community Centre. The cost of installing the water and sewer lines from the nearest main to the property is to be cost shared by Rimoka Housing, the town and the county.

RCMP respond to disturbing scenes of domestic abuse This week Rimbey RCMP responded to 54 calls for service. Highlights include two sexual assaults, several break and enters, domestic assault, impaired drivers, trespassing, and other serious matters. Impaired driver On November 2, police were conducting patrols during the late night hours and observed a local 28-year-old Rimbey man on his way home in his 2011 Dodge pickup truck swerving all over the road. When the attentive officer stopped the erratic driver he provided breath samples over double the legal limit. Police seized his truck and the man will appear in Rimbey Court on December 6 to speak to the charges. Domestic abuse Unfortunately, police attended some disturbing scenes involving domestic abuse and assault. In one case, a 37-year-old female has been charged with multiple serious charges, including assault after she attacked her husband. Children Services has been assisting police in this matter. Alcohol was a factor in this case. Break and enters Police are investigating three break and enter complaints that occurred sometime during the night of November 6. In one case, the Blindman Valley Youth Action Centre (Neighbourhood Place) was broken into. This non-profit organization is dedicated to helping people in town and is operated by caring volunteers. The thieves caused hundreds of dollars in damages in their effort to find anything valuable. There are signs clearly posted on all the doors and windows that state that there is no cash left on the premises at night.... unfortunately, these wizards apparently can’t read. Neighbourhood Place has several offices within, including the Employment Centre. Which is totally ironic. If these criminals actually applied their skills down a different avenue they would likely have no need to steal. Consider this to do this break and enter they had to be dedicated to be out in freezing cold temperatures. They are industrious and quite capable of handling tools, such as a crowbar. They are willing to work night shifts. If they had a look-out they are good team players and have communication skills. If they actually did have an accomplice they are good at keeping information in confidence. With these important skills, they wouldn’t need to know how to read signs to have excellent jobs! Police are
actively investigating these matters with the assistance of the RCMP Forensic Identification Section and are pursuing all leads at this time. Officers arrested more wanted persons and several suspended drivers during the week. Mounties participate in Remembrance Day Ceremonies Mounties took part in several Remembrance Day Ceremonies throughout the community. It is a great honour to be part of the communities we serve. Thank you Veterans and a special thank you also to the ones who lost a family member fighting to preserve our freedoms. Your enormous sacrifices will not be forgotten. If you have any information regarding this or any other crimes, please call the local Rimbey RCMP Detachment at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers: PHONE: 1-800-222-8477 #8477 on Telus Mobility *8477 on Rogers AT&T Crime Stoppers is a community program that does work!

Welcome to winter again Winter has returned with a vengence. It’s like payback time for the seasons that came before. Remember. Remember the endless green and blue days of summer. Remember fall. Remember the kaledescope of Treena Mielke color and the warmth On The Other Side and the long days that stretched seamlessly into soft nights. Already, those other seasons seem like a dream or maybe just the chapters of a really good book. Fiction, of course. This year, I found myself particularly disillusioned with the new season that we were suddenly skidded into. Really, it shouldn’t have been a big surprise. For everything there is a season, and the seasons change. It’s a given, a fact of life, so suck it up buttercup! (that’s just me, talking to me) Anyway, as with any challenge that comes along whether it be winter or another one of those little curve balls of life, its best to be prepared. And, it also works well to smile lots and think about stuff like your cup is half full, not half empty, and whatever form of liquid is in it, has not yet spilled on the road of life, or the road to work, or whatever road you happen to be traveling on. “There are good things about winter,” a friend told me the other day. “Shut up,” I said. But, of course, I know there are. And, lucky me, I have experienced some of them already. Take winter tires. Apparently, they are the best round things to have under your vehicle ever made and will save you countless hours of digging yourself out of the ditch. Well, I’m here to tell you I have them on and, thanks to fate and more good luck than good plan-
ning, I had them on before the first snowfall hit. And then there is hockey. I have a grandson who plays hockey; pond hockey, actually. When that kid is on the ice, his tiny frame takes over my entire range of vision. I see no one else on the rink. And when he gets the puck it’s like the outside world stands still. “Go,” I yell. “Skate. Shoot.” And then I stamp my feet and make quite a spectacle of myself and other people in the stands look at me somewhat quizzically. “That kid that had the puck, that’s my grandson,” I mutter to no one in particular. But, I’m happy. And I’m warm. And, in that moment, I like hockey and I don’t mind winter and I don’t care that my mitts don’t match. And then there are new boots. I bought some the other day. Cheap but classy. Black with heels, high, but not too high. I felt good when I put them on, like I had ar-
rived. I’m not sure where I had arrived at, but wherever it was, I was there. And then there are fireplaces, mugs filled with hot coffee, and the kindness of the two young boys next door who attacked the snow in our front yard with snowshovels and a relentless kind of kindness. I heard someone say that young people don’t shovel walks and they don’t help their neighbors and they are generally selflish and lazy. Well, I’m here to tell you, they are wrong. Goodness and kindness and helping out the next door neighbours is very much in existence and, even better, it has no age limit. And for that I’m most grateful. And, really as I prepare to slip and slide through another season, I find myself agreeing with my friend. There are good things about winter.
Remembrance Day holds special meaning to teenager With Remembrance Day over, I would like to share what that particular day means to me, and some of my very own memories of past Remembrance Days. Remembrance Day for most is a time to reflect on the past and honour those who fought in the war, by wearing the red poppy on your heart you show you care and have appreciation toward those brave men and women who fought for our freedom. For me that day has been a time to honour the soldiers both past and present, keeping a relationship with the school and community ceremonies, by also showing respect toward the amazing things achieved and by the ones lost. When the time of remembrance comes, so does the topic of loss. The word has many ways of use but the most known or used is that of the loss of people. Everyone experiences loss, it’s hard to avoid. When a loved one or friend passes away it is dif-

That man is one of
many reasons why I’m so honoured to be free and that I’m from such a diverse and ideal country. On Nov 7 my school hosted a Remembrance Ceremony that I had the privilege to be the master of ceremonies for. Comrade Duke, a local veteran blessed us with his presence and stories of his dedication, and years spent in Scouts and with his years volunteering for the Rimbey Fire Department. The junior high students put together a slide show on the many animals who took part in war or peace keeping, followed by a short video honoring “The Year of the Korean War Veterans”. It was a little unsettling getting in front of my peers, but after the day was done the experience made me proud of not only myself but my school and all the staff and students. Keeping the Day of Remembrance alive for generations to come is important, and is one day that no person should forget.

Town council adopts interim budget until deliberations begin in 2014 By Treena Mielke Rimbey town council will go into the New Year using last year’s budget figures and changes won’t be made until 2014 figures are finalized. Rimbey’s 2013 $6.170 million budget showed expenditures of $5 million leaving a healthy surplus of $797,000. Council will use the 2013 budget as the
2014 interim operating budget for the first part of the calendar year. CAO Tony Goode said the interim budget is to allow council time to prepare budget figures for the year ahead. “It will help get through the first three months. Staff begins the budgeting process in the middle of January,” he said. “In January we will have an opportunity to hear council’s wish list and prioritize
that,” said Mayor Rick Pankiw. Goode said he doesn’t predict a lot of change in the operating budget this year. He noted the amount of provincial funding will not be known until that budget comes out which is usually around the end of March. The town issued $8.4 million in development permits in 2012, up considerably from the $4.7 issued in 2011. Last year taxes went up by 1.5 per cent
with the average tax bill showing about a thirty-one dollar increase. The increase was due to assessed values of commercial property which went up since 2008 by almost 30 per cent. The 1.5 per cent increase put Rimbey on the lower end of the tax scale in comparison to the communities of Hanna, Carstairs, Gibbons and Sundre, with only the community of Gibbons coming in at a lower rate.

Springdale Players encourages more community volunteers By Treena Mielke Springdale Players, comprised of a vibrant group of volunteers who put on a dinner theatre production each year is putting down the welcome mat for new members. “We welcome longtime community members and newcomers to get involved, said Elaine Hawkins, a member of the Liberty Hall Board. “Besides the actors, there are many behind the scene roles.” she said. “Reading and selecting a play each year, in itself, takes a great deal of time. We always have good clean plays that are funny and have lots of characters. It is a huge job selecting a play.” Other jobs such lighting and sound technicians, ticket sales people, set designers, builders and decorators, script assistants, costume, make up and hair design people, directors, production manager, still photographers, videographers, musicians, bar tenders and hall cleaners, cooks and dishwashers are all important. Money raised from the dinner theatre goes towards the new hall which is now at the lock up stage. Liberty Hall was built in 1921 as a temporary structure. Now, almost a century later, the hall is not only still standing, it is a busy place, continuing to house many activities, including the ever popular Springdale Players annual dinner theatre. But, even though the dinner theatre is alive and well and other activities including reunions, picnics, dinners and meetings are held at the hall, the facility is tired and old. The roof leaks badly, the water and sewer pipes often freeze in winter, the kitchen is not up to commercial qualifications and operational costs continue to rise. Continued on page 11

Premature baby is a tiny fighter By Treena Mielke When Parker Daniel Bishop Fowler was born he weighed a pound and a half and he was no bigger than his daddy’s hand. But from the moment of his birth, the tiny boy showed he was a fighter and even though his lungs weren’t fully developed, he began breathing on his own when he was only out of the womb for 22 seconds. Now, with his son almost a month old, John Fowler is breathing a little easier himself, but he admits the child is not out of the wood yet. Back home in Rimbey after leaving his finance, Shiela Bishop and their son in Calgary where the child is at the Foothills Hospital, he recounts the last few weeks prior to Parker’s birth. Bishop and Fowler went to Red Deer for what they expected to be a routine ultrasound when they discovered the placenta had stopped growing and an emergency C-section was needed although the baby was not due until Jan. 3. After a whirlwind of tests and doctors, the baby was born at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary on Oct. 17 at 4:40 a.m. “He was one week shy of being three months early,” his dad said. Although the premature baby immediately received the best possible care from a team of medical doctors and is in a hospital where the most advanced technological equipment is available, the new dad found himself to be terrified. “I’ve never been afraid of very much in my life, but I spent a lot of time in the chapel in the hospital. I haven’t
Springdale Players Continued from page 8 The hall board has been diligently saving for many years to build a new facility and were most pleased that Ponoka County contributed $140,000 in matching funds for their project. In an earlier interview, Ponoka County Reeve Paul McLauchlin said council was impressed because the hall board had already raised significant dollars on their own when they requested the funding. “This was one of the few situations for council where there was no debate,” he said. “It was an unusual request as we had never seen this level of community support for a project. They (the Liberty Hall board) are an example for other communities to follow.” The new hall is on the same site as the original one and is approximately the same size. The old hall will remain operational until the new facility is completely functional.
done any praying before, but now I find myself praying every day.” At one point, the nurse placed his tiny son on his chest and Fowler couldn’t believe how incredibly little he was. “He is so small, it barely seemed like he was there,” Fowler said. The next three months will be crucial for little Parker and he will spend some time in the Children’s Hospital in Calgary. Bishop will stay in the city so she can be with her son and also feed him breast milk, which contains essential nutrients especially important to the premature infant. Fowler, who is an apprentice carpenter with BRIX Construction has gone back to work, but will visit his finance and their child as often as possible. “He is not out of the woods yet and my main focus is to be there for him as much as I can,” he said. Donations for Shiela Bishop and John Fowler are being accepted at any Servus Credit union to help with expenses. Fowler, who has lived in Rimbey for 17 years is grateful for the community support. “It is something we never expected. I never felt so much a part of the community until now. The e-mails and supportive prayers have been wonderful. We are very grateful.” Meanwhile, the couple is surrounding their baby with all their love and continue to be strong for him and each other. “We’re just taking it one day at a time,” said Fowler.
Rimbey Rodeo Board would like to say Thank You to all these Sponsors for making our Silent Auction a success. It was great fun, thanks to everyone that came and took part!

spoken with Tim Morrison, Chief of Staff in the office of Doug Griffiths, the Minister of Municipal Affairs; and had been assured that no deadline had been missed, the application had not expired, and consideration of the project was ongoing. (This information had also appeared in the October 15th issue of the Rimbey Review under the title “Negotiations continue between Rimoka and Alberta Municipal Affairs about proposal”. ) However, at the forum on Oct. 16, Mr. Pankiw contradicted Mayor Ibbotson with the reading of a letter, which he said had been written by MLA Joe Anglin, stating that the application had expired. This action was tantamount to saying that Mayor IIbbotson was lying, lacking in knowledge regarding an important issue, and/
or negligent in his duty in the matter It is to be hoped that Mayor Pankiw, realizing his mistake, has apologized to Mr. Ibbotson for such a public insult, and for spreading false information within days of the election. It is also to be hoped that in his position as Mayor of Rimbey, Mr. Pankiw will consider carefully letters, reports, etc. before giving out or acting upon misinformation and outand-out fabrication. A point to ponder: Why did Mr. Anglin send the letter to Mr. Pankiw, and not the town council, which is the body directly involved in the issue of the proposed facility? Florence Stemo, Rimbey

Robert Westerson, a Korean War vet who lives in Rimbey talks about the war which began June 25, 1950 when the military forces of North Korea crossed the 38th parallel into South Korea.

matter of fact about his time there. “I went because that the the thing to do. I was just doing my duty.” More than 26,000 Canadians served in the Korean War and 516 died. The active fighting in the Korean War ended on July 27, 1953, but the war between North and South Korea has never really ended. “It’s still on,” said Westerson, shaking his head sadly. “It could start up again tomorrow.”
Robert Peter Westerson was 20 years old in 1950 when he joined the 2nd Battalion of princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry to fight in the Korean War. The young man certainly fit the criteria of a soldier. He was young, eager and he was not afraid. The fact that he might not come back or that the horrors of the war would remain with him for a lifetime never entered his mind. Now a father and a grandfather, living in Rimbey he sits in his comfortable home, where his wife’s homemade cookies sit on the counter and pictures of family are scattered on the walls and he looks back. He remembers the war. He remembers it well. He remembers the mud and the trenches and the cold. And he remembers the dead and the dying. He remembers marching for days on end and the endless fighting. He has photo albums full of memories, but most of the memories are etched in his • Windshield Repair/ head and will never be forgotten.

Byelection possibility for Bentley By June Norvila Bentley voters are going back to the polls sooner than they had expected. With a vacancy created on Bentley town council with the passing of newly re-elected councilor Cliff Knutson, it has been determined that a byelection must be held supposedly within 90 days of the position becoming vacant meaning a byelection mustto be held by the end of January. That would result in advertising and a nomination date during the Christmas season when citizens might be busy with other things, therefore, a recommendation to ask the Minister of Municipal Affairs for an extension to February 20 is being considered and will be decided at the next regular town council meeting on November 12.

Donald William Stewart of Rimbey, Alberta was born on May 9, 1953. He passed away suddenly at the farm on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at the age of 60 years.
On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, we unexpectedly lost a most treasured member of our family, Neil Edward White of Winfield, Alberta, who suddenly passed away as a result of a motor vehicle accident at the age of 61 years. Neil was born in Vancouver, B.C. and became a son of Alberta when his father, Clifford took a job in the city of Calgary. Neil graduated from Olds College with hopes of being the first part of a new wave of pioneers who cherished the land and harvested from good earth. He met Barbara (nee Palm) of Rimbey, to whom he was married in 1975, and together they purchased land east of Winfield in 1977. In 1985, Neil felt a strong call to enter full-time pastoral ministry and he obtained his Diploma of Christian Studies from Regent College in Vancouver, and subsequently served as the Pastor of Battle Lake Community Baptist Church from 1987 to 1998. After completing his first of two Masters Degrees, and a visit to L’brie, Switzerland in the spring of 1999, Neil was inspired to build Hidden Springs Guest House and Retreat on the farm in Winfield to offer a place of respite for weary souls. Truly a bearer of burdens, his second Masters Degree was in Arts, specializing in Family Counselling, and Neil spearheaded Burden Bearers’ office in Drayton Valley. Until the very moment of his passing, he continued to find ways to make the world a better, brighter place for those in need. Neil has now found rest after a rich and full life lived in service of God and his fellow man. Neil will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his beloved wife, Barb; two sons, Skylar (Karen) of Lacombe; and Jordan (Caitlin) of Red Deer; and two daughters, Ailen White; and Kelsey White, both of Calgary; in addition to his cherished grandchildren: Theo, Zaeli, Kaiah, Thomas, and Keenan. He will also be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his two brothers, Brian (Maureen) of Calgary; and Ross (Jeannie) of Victoria, B.C.; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other close family, and a host of treasured friends. Neil was predeceased by his parents, Cliff and Fran; and his sister, Lynn Turnbull. A Public Memorial Service in Celebration of Neil’s Life was held at the Rimbey Community Centre, Rimbey on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Jeff Gooderham and Pastor James Bekkers officiating. Cremation took place at the Central Alberta Crematorium, Red Deer. Interment will take place at a later date in the Knob Hill Cemetery, Winfield. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Neil’s Memory may be made directly to Burden Bearers Counselling Centre, Box 5325, Drayton Valley, Alberta T7A 1R5. Condolences to the Family may also be expressed by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org Funeral and Cremation Arrangements for the Late Neil Edward White entrusted to the care of OBERHAMMER FUNERAL CHAPELS Rimbey, AB. 1-403-843-4445
Don will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his loving family: his mother, Rose; his son, Garry Peck; as well as his siblings, Virginia Stewart (Harvey Roland); Marvin Stewart; Brenda Fowler (Gary Thebeau); Carol Muncaster (Ben Lyftogt); Keith Stewart; and Kim Stewart (Steve Schrader); in addition to numerous nieces, n e p h e w s , a n d o t h e r e x t e n d e d f a m i l y. D o n w a s predeceased by his father, Vernon in 1994; his brother, Kenneth in 1976; and his nephew, Colin ‘Mouse’ in 2011. A Public Memorial Service in Celebration of Don’s Life was held at the Hoadley Community Hall, Hoadley on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with the Reverend Deborah Laing officiating. Cremation took place at the Central Alberta Crematorium, Red Deer. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Don’s Memory may be made directly to Northlands, c/o Edmonton Rodeo Cowboy’s Benevolent Foundation, Box 1480, Edmonton, Alberta T5J 2N5.
