Chamber looking for interest in incubator program By Treena Mielke The Rimbey Chamber of Commerce is putting feelers out to gauge interest in a project designed to put life into the downtown core. The incubator project, which is up and running successfully in Rocky Mountain House, may catch on here, said chamber president Jackie Stratton. “We need to contact home based businesses here and get their opinion. We need to see if they are interested. We need to get the word out.” Only a handful of people showed up for a meeting held at the Best Western Rimstone Ridge Hotel at 7 p.m. last Thursday about the incubator program. Michelle Andrishak, who

manages the incubator program in Rocky Mountain House, was the guest speaker. Andrishak said government funding for the program in Rocky Mountain House helped the incubator project get off the ground, adding there were receptive business owners who were willing to participate. “We were fortunate. We had renters right off the bat,” she said. “We were ready to rock and roll in three months.” Andrishak said she was pleased to help the renters become self-sustaining. “They were my chickens in a hen house. I really wanted them to survive.” While the businesswoman said she would be happy to help Rimbey in an advisory ca-

pacity, a manager would be needed to oversee the project. “I would be happy to act as an advisor and assist you in any way,” she said. “I can advise you, but you would manage it.” The project is simple, she said. “If you can’t afford a house, you get a roommate. It’s simply a commercial version of that.” Mayor Rick Pankiw, who attended the presentation, said he likes the idea, but he sees it as a chamber initiative. “The chamber has a lot of work ahead of them. And then they need to come together with a business proposal that they can present to the town,” he said.

Stratton is optimistic the incubator program could work here. “I could certainly see it here. It certainly would give small businesses the opportunity to test the waters when they are just starting out.” Some of the businesses in Rocky Mountain House who participated in the incubator program were Pure Healthy Essential Oils, That Game Store, KES Graphic Designs, Cougar Ridge Bookkeeping, Coldwell Banker Realty and Deep Reflections, a registered psychologist. For more information about the incubator program contact Jackie Stratton at 403-8432727 or Carrie Vaartstra at 403-843-2944.

Thank You

During my stay at the Rimbey General Hospital I received such great care. I just wanted to thank all the doctors and nurses that attended to me with such patience and excellent care. I also want to thank Dr. Nawrot for his guidance and support through my entire ordeal. The Dietitians, house keeping as well as home care also played a major role as well and should all be commended for their personal touches. I have stayed at other Hospitals but nothing compares to the Rimbey General. You’re the TOPS. Keep up with the caring. HARRY WIT

with his family in a quiet meadow and had set up a deer decoy hoping to entice a buck into the field from the thick bush nearby. While the officer intently waited with his family in the trees near the decoy a pickup truck going down the roadway suddenly slammed on its brakes and shot a deer in the field adjacent to the decoy.   The truck then drove into the field and the hunter quickly loaded the deer and took off.  Fortunately, in this case, these bandits did not see the decoy and shoot it!  The officer and his family would have been  in the line of fire.  Needless to say, the decoy has been put away until it can be painted bright orange and decorated with Christmas lights!    Mounties investigate Mounties were called to inves-

Maybe we do need a little Christmas Christmas is starting to pop up everywhere. As I start the bumpy drive to work which means I am driving on icy rutted roads which means I am still in my subdivision, I see signs of the season poking up everywhere. Treena Mielke Houses with ChristOn The Other Side mas lights up. Christmas trees lighting up windows. “I really must take that Halloween pumpkin which is now mush out of that flower cart thing on the front step,” I think to myself. “Really, that is so inappropriate.” I drive on further and I see a plywood Santa and his reindeer bravely preparing to prance up on somebody’s rooftop. Wow, it seems like only yesterday it was Remembrance Day. Probably, because it was. Okay, it was not yesterday, it was last week, already. As has been my practice, or at least as has been my intention and sometimes my practice for the last few months or so, I rise, stumble forth, and end up at the gym early in the morning. This all happens before I become too awake to seriously consider the definition of ‘crazy.’ It’s good, at least it’s good when I am in the post exercise mode which means sitting down with a coffee and the newspaper. Well deserved. Relaxing. Sadly, it seems so much of the news is not relaxing, but disturbing. I sip my coffee and turn the pages, reading of violence, sexual slurs, break ins and murders. The written word. Mightier than the sword. Some wise person said that. I look out my window at the crusted snow, lit by a few streetlights and a string of misplaced

Christmas lights. Christmas with all its hope, unrealistic dreams, great expectations and slightly camouflaged greed is here again. And, once again, people are embracing it like a long lost friend. I even heard someone say to me the other day they loved Christmas. It was their favorite time of year. This person was an adult, too. I turn the pages of the newspaper. It’s more of the same. I think of the lyrics to the song that say ‘we need a little Christmas.’ Coffee break over, I head to work. I pull back onto the bumpy road that singles out my subdivision from the next subdivision which no doubt has the same bumpy road, but different street sign. I drive past the houses with the Christmas lights and the trees all lit up against the winter darkness.

“Good for you,” I say silently giving them the thumbs up! Of course, they don’t know that I’m doing that. No one else is up, or so it seems. But, I have to say that in the midst of all the hatred and senseless violence and crime and atrocities that spill out onto the pages of the news, I have decided one thing. It is true; we do need a little Christmas. Or perhaps, what we really need is the faith to believe in what Christmas stands for so we know that somewhere in this tarnished and unhappy world, goodness will, in the end, win out. And the Toronto Maple Leafs will win the Stanley Cup, making fans such as my brothers, who are watching the games from heavenly seats, very happy! But that, perhaps, is too much to hope for.

Confidence issues often plague teens who don’t know how to cope Confidence is a must if you want to lead a happy and successful life. Loving yourself and keeping a healthy balance both physically and mentally is a great way to avoid sadness, and many teen issues. Everyone, young or old goes through confidence troubles at some point in their lives, I myself and many people I know feel like they’re not good enough sometimes. Sometimes when a person is so set in their ways they give themselves negative self-talk. For example they may be always wishing they were skinnier or prettier. It’s hard for them to believe that they’re perfect just how they are. This is becoming an overwhelming and somewhat scary problem for teens and young adults. Many teens, when only noticing their flaws, become victim of things like self harm, the risk of an eating disorder such as binge eating or starvation, or drug or alcohol abuse. Confidence issues can also cause

I slowly began to understand even more that life is a gift and that you need to love yourself. Self-confidence can be lowered or heightened by many different things. Mine got low because of stress, loneliness and sadness, but got heightened by the realization of love that my parents and family have for me. We all, no matter what, go through bad days or even years of battling confidence issues. Surround yourself with positive people or just do things you enjoy or are good at, and just learn to let go. Get over the fact that not just you, but everyone has flaws. Then you will begin to grow and love even the flaws you see in yourself.

Rimbey library fundraiser features pub night with Celtic band By Treena Mielke The Rimbey library board has decided to liven up its major fundraiser this year and hold a pub night featuring St. James’s Gate, a popular Celtic band. The library fundraiser is to be held Nov. 29 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Rimbey Community Centre. Librarian Jean Keetch said she is excited about the fundraiser.

“They are a very talented band, very popular. They have a strong following. It will be like a pub night. People can listen to the music, have some drinks and there will be food available. We will also have 50/50 draws and a wheel of fortune. There will be space for dancing, as well.” Keetch said the library board decided they wanted to try something different than the traditional fundraising dinner theatre this year in an effort to raise more aware-

ness about the library, and, in the process, bring in much needed dollars. “The money is to go towards our operating budget,” she said. “Every year we need to do a fundraiser to raise funds to meet our needs,” she said. St. James’s Gate is comprised of musicians whose Celtic inspired tunes consists of dynamic vocals, three-part harmonies, rousing fiddle music, acoustic/ electric bass and rhythm guitar and

drums guaranteed to entertain young and old. The band specializes in a variety of Irish music, including beautiful ballads and waltzes, faster than lightning jigs and reels, traditional pub songs and contemporary Irish music. They also incorporate bluegrass, polka, Cajun, and classic English/ American rock and folk songs in their musical selections.

Michael Jarmoluk, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday, proudly carried his flag in the Remembrance Day service and stood at attention during the opening ceremonies. Jarmoluk, a Second World War veteran who recently returned from five days in Rome, said he was pleased his family attended the service. “They got to see that the old guy is still marching,� he said with a chuckle. Joining Jarmoluk in the colour party was Legion members Dale Waldron, Walter Lynn and Bob Lapointe. Master of ceremonies Rimbey Legion President, Comrade Tyler Hagel said it is important to remember the veterans who laid down their lives for their country and also to honour the veterans who came home. “It is important that they pass their stories onto us so we will never forget,� he said. Pastor Mark Schultz from the Zion Lutheran Church said giving thanks to our veterans for the bravery and commitment to their country needs to be a priority for everyone. “They fought for lasting peace. Our veterans served their country and by serving their country they have also served God. We need to honor our veterans who have fought in past wars and who fight today. We need government and we need armies, but we also need to honor God, it is he who holds the fields forever.� Wreaths were laid on behalf of organizations and individuals and following the service, members of the Rimbey Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary extended a warm invitation for all for lunch and fellowship at the Legion Hall. Following the retiring of the colours and The Royal Anthem, Comrade Hagel presented Harold Kenney, president of the Rimbey Historical Society with a $25,000 cheque to go towards the restoration of Rimbey’s war museum located at Pas Ka Poo Park.

The Rimbey Review, Nov. 19, 2013 11

MLA defends new mayor MLA Anglin requested says no apology needed to explain information Dear Editor, In response to a letter to the editor alleging Mayor Pankiw misrepresented facts regarding the senior’s lodge during the campaign; the allegations are baseless. The application process for a new 80 unit Rimbey Senior’s lodge first stalled and then, in effect, expired. Any claims or allegations to the contrary cannot be supported by evidence or fact. On October 29, 2013 an updated application for a new seniors lodge was submitted to the Minister of Municipal Affairs. This application is considerably different than the original 80-unit application prepared in 2011. After 18 months of stalled negotiations, there is now every reason to expect the land purchase for a new lodge will be completed within days or weeks. Most importantly, changes have been initiated at the lodge to improve working conditions for the staff. All this has been done within the first month of the new administration. I am happy to say I worked closely with the new mayor to make this all happen. Regardless of what critics think of Mayor Pankiw, he has accomplished more in one month to advance a new lodge than the previous 18 months.

Further, I will be meeting with Mayor Pankiw tomorrow in Edmonton to discuss a variety of options to secure funding for a new lodge. This will be our second meeting since Mayor Pankiw met with Minister Griffiths to discuss a new Rimbey Senior’s Lodge. No one needs to ponder how Mayor Pankiw came to possess correspondence from me. When he set out to learn the facts of the matter, he asked! This does not require an apology. Joe Anglin MLA Rimbey - Rocky Mountain House Rimbey Editor’s Note: In an article in the Oct. 15 edition of the Rimbey Review Kathleen Range, Press Secretary to Municipal Affairs Minister, Doug Griffiths said the proposal, which first went before the government in 2011, has not been discarded, although the government wants additional information. “What they will be doing with the existing facility needs to be clarified,” she said. We are expecting a revised proposal,” Denis Beesley, president of Bethany Group, the CAO of Rimoka housing also stated in the article a revised proposal was in place and he had plans to meet with the Ministry that week or next.

Dear Editor In reference to a recent letter in the Rimbey Review from Florence Stemo. I am not a resident of the town of Rimbey and I shall not comment on the present or past mayors. However I am a resident of the Ponoka County and the subject of the proposed seniors’ facility is also a county issue. Joe Anglin is also my MLA representative. The fall out and confusion of the alleged

misinformation presented to the mayor elect by Mr. Anglin should be borne by Mr. Anglin. I request MLA Joe Anglin to step up to the plate and explain his actions. He does boast accountability, doesn’t he? I am not defending the new mayor of Rimbey but let’s not shoot the messenger. We need to go to the alleged source of the misleading information.

By Treena Mielke A Rimbey cowboy has returned from the CFR with a fair chunk of change jingling in his pocket and a positive attitude about his experience. Dean Edge faced stiff competition in the tie down roping event at the Canadian Finals Rodeo held in Edmonton at Rexall Place Nov. 6 to 10, but still he managed to come away somewhat richer financially and none the worse for wear because of the experience. Edge’s time of 8.5 won him the second spot in Saturday’s night competition at the CFR, netting him earnings of $8,527.00. Unfortunately, his other scores did not place him among the top contenders, but Edge is a seasoned cowboy and, as such, has experienced both highs and lows in his rodeo career. With the CFR behind him, he looks back on the experience as another enjoyable highlight. “I always like competing at the CFR,” he said. “It’s exciting and can really make a financial difference for the year. I didn’t have as much luck this year, but I roped okay and won some money.” Edge finished fourth in the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association season and has been a contender in the CFR seven times.

Bentley offered community Remembrance Day Service, last Elks turkey bingo, and museum open house November 11 By June Norvila There were special ways to commemorate November 11 in Bentley. A traditional Remembrance Day service was staged in the Bentley Community Church led by Pastor Greg Rathjen. It did not appear to be as well attended as some other times, but the service was again reverent and well planned. It started with the singing of O’ Canada and the march in of the color parade with flags carried in by local Royal Canadian Legion Branch 230 members Terry Dickau and Adam Metro, and included Staff Sgt. Gary Rhodes from the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment dressed in his red serge, Fred Whitely from Bentley in uniform representing the RCAF, and Girl Guides and leaders representing the Sparks, Brownies, and Guides. There were power point presentations with memories from the Liberation of Holland 65 years ago, and memories shared about Bentley’s Robert (Bob) Armstrong who had served in Dieppe and been a POW and had passed away this fall. There was the traditional laying of the wreaths, a film of sevenyear old Sophie Rathjen singing “Do We Think About Our Freedom?”, and times of reflection and prayer before the singing of God Save the Queen and the march

Bentley School remembers By June Norvila

sung by grade 10 Nethaniel DiLella and accompanied on guitar by grade 12 Taylor Bohn and on keyboard by teacher Kolybaba. Master Cpl. Ban gave a special emotional address along with a power point presentation that combined both past and current history. Students from grades one and two presented “In Flanders Fields”, and a special power point presentation put together by grade 10’s Alyssa Sorensen and Taylor Hand was shown. Many wreaths were laid before a grade 3-5 Fine Arts student’s hand bell / xylophone performance. Kolybaba acknowledged many students whom she said were of the utmost importance to carrying out the production. Besides those already mentioned, there were Cole Mackenzie, the school tech “guru guy”, and others including some members of the sr. high school boys volleyball team from Grade 12 - Matthew Day, Spencer Holden, Carson Schneider, Nathan Dennehy, Kolton Hueppelsheuser, and more, not forgetting those who helped set up, put away, and more. The program closed with two verses of “God Save the Queen”. As in the past, the near-by Bentley Care Center had been invited to bring over some of the residents to enjoy the service, which they did, where residents were assisted by school student volunteers.

“It (the Remembrance Day school service) is important to me. I am lucky to be allowed to be so creative with the program,” said teacher Marla Kolybaba as the explained how she ties many subjects including art and music and more into the school’s Remembrance Day program.  “And the others (in the school) are so supportive of me and back me up.” Kolybaba missed out on doing the program last year as she was on sick leave, but was happy to be right back in the thick of directing it again this year. And once again it was a magnificent hour-long program. The design picked for the cover of the printed program, and passed out by Payton Vert and Chantal Schunk, was artwork done by Mataya Hansen. A wonderful musical prelude was performed by Vivien, Domenica, and Steven Schunk on saxophones, keyboard and flute. Six members from the Red Deer Royal Canadian Legion Pipe & Drum band that included drummer Arnie MacAskill, a former vice principal at the Bentley Elementary school, led the march-in and later played a medley of tunes.

Ponoka County backs loan for Rimbey Agrim Centre By Treena Mielke

Cutforth states Ponoka County intends to guarantee the loan in support of the Rimbey Agriculture Society’s construction of the Agrim Centre. The Ponoka County’s continued belief in guarantee is to be in the form of a line of credit with ATB Financial, Rimbey, with an interest rate of prime less 0.5 per cent. County Reeve Paul McLaughlin said guaranteeing loans is not a usual practice for the county. “However, it matches the same endorsement we have extended to the Ag Event Centre in Ponoka.” Mayor Rick Pankiw said he sees the Agrim Centre as a huge boon to Rimbey. “The revenue possibilities it could bring into the town are wonderful. The revenue (potential) is astronomical.” Pankiw encourages the agriculture board to talk to council about the project. “We’re open to have them come see us. We’re open to help. As a town we support it-- one hundred per cent.” Earlier, the town helped out the Agrim Centre financially by waiving the $50,000 security deposit. Ken Whitelock, director and building committee member said he is pleased with the speed with which the building is going up. “It should be closed in before Christmas,” he The approximately $4.5 million Agrim Centre is beginning to take shape and should be closed in by Christmas. The ag said. centre will be a great boon to Rimbey and surrounding area and will bring spectators in for various events and provide The opening date has not yet been finalized as a venue for many organizations.

MCDONALD MCTIGHE Margaret ( Peggy) Sept. 12, 1923 - Nov. 5, 2013

Employment #700 - #920

Margaret will be missed by her daughter, Marilyn McDonald Wells and her children, Teresa Stone Lea (Mike) and family, Colin Stone (Natasha) and family and Grayson Wells; her daughter, Diane McDonald Sim (Darryl) and their children, Natasha Sim, Sheena Sim Pike (Jay) and family, Derek Sim; her stepdaughter, Shirley McTighe Carruthers (Wally) and their children, Charmin and Laine, eleven greatgrandchildren, and one fifth generation great-great-granddaughter. Margaret is also survived by her brothers, Andy and Jimmy Webb (Jean), and sisters-in-law Alice Webb (Geordie), and Nora McTighe Broderson. Margaret was predeceased by her brothers, Geordie and Ronnie Webb; sisters-in- law, Cora Webb (Andy) and Shirley Webb (Ronnie); stepson, Wayne McTighe and son-in-law Bruce Wells. Margaret was eleven when her mom died. Being the sole woman, for the most part, in a house with four brothers, a father and an uncle, she worked hard baking bread, biking home at lunch to put the loaves in the oven, doing huge amounts of laundry and cleaning to her perfectionist state. She always looked forward to any news coming from “home”. Margaret’s husband, Douglas McDonald passed away in 1966. Both were born in McAuley, MB. She married Phillip McTighe and moved to the Eckville farm, where they resided close to thirty years. They moved off the farm to Rimbey and a few years later, Phillip passed away. Margaret was an oilfield secretary in Drayton Valley for Schlumberger, a postmistress at Sylvan Lake and a part time clerk at the Bay in Red Deer. Margaret will be remembered for her love of a good time, her ready laugh and her enjoyment of dancing. She kept a spotless house, grew a big garden and prepared many great meals. After supper, she read her cherished newspaper. When Margaret wasn’t playing a game of cards with her grandchildren or great-grandson Andrew, she would be curling, fishing or camping. In the winter, she and Phillip frequently travelled to Mexico, St. Lucia, or Vancouver Island. Cross country skiing, potato digging, bonfires, skeet shooting, grouse hunting and great holiday meals are memories of good times at the farm. The families want to give thanks from the bottom of their hearts to Bethany Lodge at Sylvan Lake and Red Deer’s West Park Lodge for such excellent care for our little mom. There will be a private celebration of her life. Condolences may be sent or viewed by visiting
