Police on lookout BY TREENA MIELKE Rimbey RCMP and Canada Post are teaming up to catch the criminals responsible for an epidemic of mailbox break ins throughout the area and the latest break in to the town’s post office has meant even tighter securty meausres will be in place. Const. Carman Dutz said the break in to the post office was discovered when a resident stopped in to pick up mail early Wednesday morning (Jan. 20). The doors to 14 mailboxes were pried open and mail may have been stolen. Police were immediately alerted. Dutz is hopeful whoever is responsible for the crime will soon be apprehended. “It’s early in the investigation, but people are going by the post office all the time and it is very lit up. It is a location that many people frequent all hours of the day or night and we are hopeful that someone has information

that would assist in identifying the person or persons responsible for this crime.” While he noted seeing someone in the post office picking up mail isn’t suspicious, seeing someone with a crow bar or screw driver demands immediately attention. “Call the RCMP at once,” he said. Tips from the public help the RCMP to do their job. If you have any information regarding these or any other crimes, please call the local Rimbey RCMP Detachment at (403) 8432224 or Crime Stoppers: Stealing mail is a criminal offence and could net up to 10 years jail time, he added. Stealing mail from rural mailboxes has been somewhat of an epidemic throughout the province, he said, noting Canada Post is doing its part by moving mail boxes inside the municipalities. continued on page 3

RIMBEY REVIEW 3
Mounties deal with break-ins, drugs, false identities, weapon offenses, and impaired drivers
Rimbey RCMP - The end of 2015 was a busy time for the Rimbey RCMP Detachment. In keeping with the Christmas season, members of the Rimbey RCMP were able to tie a bow on a few files by making arrests and laying charges for a variety of offences including possession of stolen mail and other property under $5000, possession of stolen vehicles, possession of drugs for the purpose
of trafficking, weapons offences and impaired driving. On December 4, a member of the Rimbey detachment stopped a vehicle on Highway 20 for a traffic-related infraction. The driver, thinking he could deceive the officer, provided a false name when asked to identify himself. It took only a few more questions from the member to reveal that the driver had lied about his name. The 34-year-old driver was arrested for obstructing a police officer by providing a false name. Further investigation located a quantity of a substance believed to be crystal meth inside the vehicle as well as several weapons and stolen property which included identity documents stolen from the Central Alberta area. The Red Deer man was
on probation at the time of his arrest and obliged to abide by the condition that he not be in possession of weapons. He was charged with possessing a weapon for dangerous purpose, drug possession, identity fraud, failing to comply with the conditions of his probation and obstruction for lying about his identity. The male was remanded and did not speak to bail. His 24-yearold female passenger from Bashaw was also charged in the incident for drug possession, possession of stolen property, and illegal possession of government documents. She was released with a promise to appear at Provincial Court in Rimbey on Friday, February 5. On December 7, another man from Red Deer was attempting to use a false name while committing
Canada Post teams up continued from page 1 He noted the rural mailboxes in Meridian Beach were hit in December, but the boxes have now been moved inside the subdivision where they are surrounded by houses. Canada Post spokesperson John Caines commented briefly about the break in. “Unfortunately a recent trend of crime has developed in Alberta, not
just with Canada Post but other businesses as well. There was vandalism at the Rimbey post office and the affected customers are being contacted. The issue is under investigation by the police and we are unable to comment further,”
he said in an email. While Canada Post and RCMP continue to work hard to eliminate mail theft, Dutz advises people to use methods other than mail to send cheques and to definitely not send cash in the mail.

a crime. A local business contacted the Rimbey RCMP to report that a man was trying to trade a stolen vehicle. When the attending officer questioned the individual, he lied about his name. His true identity was discovered in short order and the 25-year-old man was charged with fraud over $5000, possession of stolen property over $5000, obstruction (for lying about his name), and breach of a recognizance. He was remanded into custody and had his first appearance in Provincial Court in Rimbey on Friday, January 22. On December 9, a 28-year-old man from Alder Flats was driving north on Highway 22 when his pick-up truck crossed into the southbound lane of traffic and
collided head on with another truck. Both the drivers were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the northbound vehicle was charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm. His first court appearance is in Rimbey on Friday, February 5, 2016. On December 14, local Mounties located 29-yearold Red Deer resident, Ryan Litwyn, who was wanted by police on warrants issued by the Edmonton Police Service and Red Deer RCMP. Upon his arrest, Litwyn attempted to resist police by running away. Unfortunately for him, the RCMP are not only perceptive, but swift of foot. The foot pursuit was brief and Litwyn was apprehended with some

The siblings sit quietly, saying nothing much at all. “It’s your birthday, Sunday,” my sister said to her much older brother, as she adjusted the blanket around his frail shoulders. He said nothing, only looked at her for a long time, his pale blue eyes locked on hers. “Players Plain,” he finally said with a chuckle, meaning, of course, “buy me a package of smokes and it will all be good.” I laugh when she tells me that story.

but each distinguished in their own right. First of all was my brother’s wife, his first lady. He is crazy in love with his wife, and her presence makes him all happy and when he sees her his face is wreathed in smiles. He loves her like a love story. And then there was the rest of us, all crowding around the little dining room in the main floor of the nursing home. His wife’s daughter who has adopted him as her own father, his sisters, brothers-in-law, great nieces, nephews, and bless her heart, one special nineyear-old little great niece. Prompted by her mom, she shyly presented him a homemade birthday card which she had, no doubt,
laboured over intensely. Me, being her grandma, was bursting with pride at her actions and wanted to immediately smother her slightly blushing ponytailed self with kisses, but I refrained, being I would probably embarrass her even more than she was already. “Happy birthday, she wrote. The misspelling of his name reminding me of the letters I used to write to him when I was about her age. Who knew the name ‘Horace’ was not spelled the same as the animal ‘Horse”. So there was cake and cupcakes and coffee and lots of cards. There was chatter and hugs and reminiscing and smiles. It was a quiet and gentle January afternoon and I
would like to believe all of us in that room were visited by an unseen presence. Love. It would have to be love. Finally, my brother was wheeled back to his room, but not before he went out for a smoke with the guys, all of them braced against the cold chill of the January wind. Finally, we all went home and ate the leftover cupcakes. Later my sister phoned and we talked over the party. “I think he was surprised,” she said. “I don’t think he had a clue.” Of course, I couldn’t see her pleased smile being we were on the phone and all. But, I’m sure she was! Smiling, that is!

Years ago, my brother who is our oldest sibling, served in the Canadian Armed Forces. He was a handsome young man with a disarming grin and a soft gentleness about him, a kind of innocence like a kid might have. When I was a kid, myself, I loved my brother, but not really the man, just the concept of him. To me, he was the guy who sent presents. I had no idea where they came from, nor did I care much. I specifically remember a beautiful embroidered silk bedspread from Korea, (unfortunately, the cat bore a litre of kittens on it and it never really was the same) and a beautiful jewelry box inlaid with Mother of Pearl from China. So in my little mind, my brother and Santa kind of got mixed up. Anyway, it was my brother’s 83rd birthday, Sunday. His birthday party was a small, but tastefully elegant affair, held at his new home in Michener Extended Care. The guests were few,
Word on the street is that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is still getting flack for pulling out the CF-18 fighter jets out of Syria last year. Canada might be getting slammed for our passivity towards the direct war on terror; and it’s unfortunate, though, to say that these wars cost money. I don’t know what the cost of fighter jet fuel is, but I can admit to looking up at those big illuminated signs advertising the price of regular 87 at the pumps
when I drive by. I remember when my father flew helicopters up north in the bush a while back. I used to ask him every now and again questions about aviation. He was flying and fighting forest fires all summer in Quebec; somehow it came up in conversation about the hourly cost of running a helicopter: it was upwards of $1500/hr and the machine dad flew wasn’t that large. All fuel expenses aside, the sheer cost to maintain a fighter jet mechanically would likely hit the stratosphere too. I used to see the hourly rate the diesel shop charged the customer when I was re-
placing head gaskets on a Powerstroke engine. It is likely that I would cringe while glancing at the bill for the replacement any of the CF-18’s avionic equipment. The cost of one missile is probably enough to pay for a term’s worth of English classes at RDC. Keeping fighter jets in active duty was likely costing Ottawa a fortune—and the pilots needed a pay cheque too. I dislike acknowledging that freedom and liberty for humans caught in the conflicts of war cost money; moreover, I suppose Trudeau saw the fuel bill for keeping those fighter jets in the air, and figured it was best to send
them (the jets) home. It isn’t necessary to have to quote the financial section of the metropolitan newspapers to tell you that the price of oil isn’t worth the cost of the barrel it’s stored in. The big cheques aren’t getting sent to Ottawa these days and Trudeau might have to dig a little deeper to be able to afford to send the ultra-high-octane-jet-fuel burning CF-18s back to Syria to help fight the war on terror. It would be sadly ironic to see ships, jets, trucks, and troops from Canada get sent to fight terrorists after enough tax dollars have been collected from Trudeau’s supposed legal-
ization of marijuana. A freshly baked bank account for the war on terror. They might have to paint over the maple leaf on the side of CF-18s with a pot leaf. The pilots could give the peace sign and shout from the cockpit “don’t worry we’ve got the Sirius satellite radio set on the reggae channel.” Canada can’t stand idle while terrorism continues to manifest in parts of the world. Canada also won’t be able to stand up straight if marijuana gets legalized. Trudeau will have to find a means of keeping the books balanced in Ottawa, or else physician-assisted suicide will start making more sense.

BSE testing numbers need to increase in Alberta Dear Editor, On December 2, 2015 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) released their final report on the investigation into the 19th case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in Canada, discovered in Feb. 2015. Case #19 was born on the same birth farm as case #17. The animal in case # 19 was born in March of 2009, while Case #17 was discovered in 2010. Case #19 is unique in that it was born and infected after the enhanced feed ban of 2007 was in place. What does this mean? The extensive investigation looked at any feed mill that was involved in producing commercial feed fed on this farm. Fortunately no lapses in protocols that could have allowed contamination of cattle feed were found. This is very good news. While no absolute “smoking gun” was found, the most likely cause of this latest BSE case is that the cow consumed a minute particle of left over feed from prior to the feed ban/enhanced feed ban that was still in a feed storage bin. Scientists believe that as little 1/5 of a gram (ie a garden pea cut into 15 pieces) of prion contaminated feed is enough to infect a calf. It is very easy to imagine tiny grains of feed or dust can remain in a feed bin long after that feed is gone. What does this mean for the Canadian/ Alberta cattle industry? We know the feed ban/enhanced feed ban of 2007 means that no amplification or magnification of the disease can happen in Canada like it did in the UK. That means that if we keep doing what we are doing, eventually Classical BSE will no longer exist in Canada. One of the things that we NEED to keep doing is testing appropriate cattle for BSE. Most, if not all beef and dairy producers are familiar with the Canada Alberta BSE Sampling Program (CABSESP). This is primarily the on-farm testing of dead, down, diseased or distressed cattle by a producers herd veterinarian. Unfortunately the number of animals being testing over the last few years in Alberta has dropped to a level where we are no longer meeting our testing requirements. This potentially puts our export trade of beef at risk. If our beef industry loses valuable overseas markets because we are perceived to have “dropped the ball” and are not actively testing it has the potential to be financially devastating. What can our beef industry do to help? On farm BSE testing programs like the CABSESP will be needed for decades! We will need to continue to test for the long term to maintain the confidence of our export markets and consumers. The industry NEEDS your help. BSE testing numbers need to increase in Alberta. This is not the time to “let someone else contribute”, everyone needs to take ownership and help. It is estimated that if each beef and dairy farm in Alberta had one appropriate test done per year we would surpass our targets. It is a very easy program to participate in and help your industry. Please call your local veterinary clinic, they will be able to answer your questions. Help keep the Canadian/ Alberta beef industry strong.

On December 29, members of the Rimbey RCMP executed a search warrant on a rural property east of Rimbey as part of an investigation into stolen property and drug-related activities. Gerald Damer, a 41-year-old Rimbey resident, and a 17-year-old youth who cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, were arrested and charged with property and drug offences. As a result of the search, members recovered stolen firearms, stolen vehicles and Formerly Sylvan Truck Ranch

other items of stolen property, as well as a quantity of a substance believed to be crystal meth. Both individuals were released from custody on bail with numerous conditions. Damer was scheduled to appear in Provincial Court in Rimbey on Friday, January 22. Not to be outdone by 2015, the New Year started with a couple of productive traffic stops. Just after midnight, while everyone else was singing “auld land syne”, the Mounties were on patrol to make 2016 safe. A vehicle was stopped south of Rimbey for speeding. The 39-year-old male driver from Eckville displayed signs of impairment. He was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and is to appear in Provincial Court in Rimbey
on Friday, February 5. The RCMP partners with community and other government organizations to reduce crime and increase safety for the public. Alberta Parks Enforcement is partnering with local law enforcement to keep the protected areas in the region. Aspen Beach Provincial Park is a protected area on Gull Lake. Conservation Officers continue to issue violation tickets to snowmobiles and OHV’s as motorized access is not permitted. The Provincial Park is intended to preserve the natural habitat and allow recreational activities such as cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

RIMBEY REVIEW 7
Rimbey drug trafficker sent to jail BY TREENA MIELKE Rimbey RCMP report a Rimbey resident charged with drug possession in 2014 will spend two years behind bars. In October, 2014, Nathan Webb, a 28 year old Rimbey resident, was stopped for speeding. Drugs were found in his vehicle in a quantity consistent with trafficking. He was subsequently charged with possession of cocaine and methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of marihuana, and for speeding. Webb was found guilty as charged and sentenced in December, 2015 to two years in custody. Currently, there are three other people who have been charged by the Rimbey RCMP for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking in the past year, said Const. Carman Dutz. “Their cases are before the courts. A lot of work goes into building a strong case against drug traffickers so that they are held responsible for their crimes. Information from the public is a key component in building a case. If you have information about drug activity, please be a part of the solution by sharing that information with the RCMP.”

Bill 6 needs to die instantly Dear Editor, Re: article written by Toby Malloy: Benefits of farm workplace insurance, published in The Western Producer Dec. 24 Farm workplace insurance (WCB) that Alberta government wants in place for Alberta farm workers is the worst insurance anyone could have. Why? WCB covers a person only on the job, not to or from work, at home, etc. It is the responsibility of any employee in any profession to look after having their own insurance for injury or sickness. Employers do. There is injury insurance that covers a person 24 hours a day at work, home, in Canada and anywhere else in the world. Even better yet, it is cheaper. If family farms and the agriculture industry is to survive and continue to provide some of the best and cheapest food to our fellow Albertans, Canadians and other countries around the world, Bill 6 needs to die instantly.

Volunteer recalls years of helping out
Rimbey Curling Club Violet Christianson, a long time volunteer for Rimbey FCSS is scaling back on her volunteer time and Carolynne Jensen, senior information and referral co-ordinator for FCSS said she will be greatly missed. Treena Mielke Photo
BY TREENA MIELKE What makes a volunteer step up to the plate, not just once, but time and time again? Ask Violet Christianson, one of Rimbey’s dedicated long time volunteers, and she will tell you. “They needed some people to help out and I just did whatever came up.” Christianson, who has now gracefully slipped away from many of her volunteer duties, is still active in the Rimbey Legion, plays the piano at Parkland Manor and helps out at her church. “I like to be busy,” she said. “I don’t like to sit around doing nothing.” Multi tasking is not a new word for the vivacious senior, who admits to doing a huge crossword puzzle while watching television. She is also an active floor curler and enjoys the game and visiting with other seniors at Rimbey Drop In Centre. “I know a lot of people at the Drop In,” she said. “I do have a lot of friends.” Attracting friends is easy for Christianson, whose friendly smile and cheerful demeanor has not diminished over time. “I have never seen her without a smile,” said Carolynne Jensen from Rimbey FCSS. “She has a warm personality, empathy for others and always has a smile and a greeting for everyone.”
Christianson, who was nominated for the Minister’s Seniors Service Award last year along with Gladys Johnson, has lived in the area for many years. She and her late husband Bruce raised their three children, Keith, Karen and Wendy southwest of Rimbey on Hwy. 766. She said the highway was a dirt road when they moved in. When her husband passed away in 2008, Christianson rented the farm out. She has lived in town for several years. Despite a busy life as a wife and mother, as well as an employee of Rimbey Coop, Christianson gave freely of her time as one of the community’s long serving volunteers. She served on the FCSS board of directors for many years and was one of the founding members that formed the Rimbey Home Help Services which delivers home support, home care, meals on wheels, medical alert and volunteer visiting and transportation. She also volunteered with FCSS helping out with seniors information and referral services and completing income tax forms. “I enjoyed doing the income tax,” she said. “I met a lot of people and was able to help them out.” When she was not busy volunteering in some other capacity, she was playing the piano or giving music lessons.
Jensen said her volunteer work is very much missed at FCSS. “She’s been a tireless volunteer for more than 30 years. She has a natural common sense to handling life’s circumstances and she has a smile and a warmth about her that makes everyone feel comfortable.” Christianson has two grandchildren, Richard and Lisa and one great-granddaughter, Mikayla.
