EDGERTON

‘Finest man I have ever met’ Ben Wheeler (1910-1963) is a celebrated WWII hero and doctor that acted as “life, parent and guiding star” for his fellow prisoners at the Kinkaseki POW Camp in Taiwan. Major Wheeler, like Murray “Iron Man” Murdoch, was born in eastern Canada but came to Edgerton as a young child. He attended the Edgerton School until he left to study medicine at the University of Alberta in 1935. Wheeler served as a doctor in World War II and was taken prisoner by the Japanese Imperial forces during the 1942 Fall of Singapore. He would spend the following three and a half years as a POW. Ben acted as chief medical doctor for all Commonwealth and Allied POWs, working under inhumane conditions and brutal guard treatment until the camp was liberated by the Americans in 1945. Despite the camp’s high death toll, Wheeler is credited with saving hundreds, if



not thousands, of prisoners and providing what comfort he could to countless others. Ben Wheeler’s young family had no idea he had been taken prisoner until they received a telegram from him following the camp’s liberation. They remained in Edgerton and through community spirit and family support maintained their hope and faith that he was alive. Their story, typical of so many, was later memorialized by celebrated Canadian director and Order of Canada recipient Anne Wheeler, Ben’s daughter. She detailed his experiences as a POW in A War Story, using the diary he secretly kept in Kinkaseki, and her mother’s struggle as a single parent in Edgerton with Bye Bye Blues. Ben Wheeler enjoyed an illustrious medical career following the war, going on to become head of medicine at the Royal Alexandria Hospital. Testimonials from fellow POWs in the camp described

him as a “man sent from God” and “the finest man I have ever met and the greatest doctor,” leading to him receiving the award of The Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.). Major Wheeler maintained ties to Edgerton his entire life and was forever grateful that the community cared for his family as he suffered in the baking Taiwanese heat. Ben wrote in his wartime diary that “I dislike the bowing as much as anything. How good little old Edgerton would look now, and how one has been made to realize that the greatest of all things is freedom and all that it means.” Edgerton is immensely proud of our many men and women in uniform, past and present, and we look forward to sharing more stories as we move towards our 100th Homecoming celebration.

PAINTEARTH COUNTY

Counties participating in economic fall out study J. Webster

ECA Review All communities in the region of the County of Paintearth and Flagstaff County are participating in a study similar to the one that was done for Hanna regarding the economic fall out from the closure of the coal-generated power stations. According the CAO Tarolyn Aaserud, the cost will probably run about $30,000 with a grant application in the works. The report scheduled to be completed by April 2017. The project will provide the Economic Opportunities Taskforce with a clear picture of the short and long term impacts of the closure of the Battle River generating station and the coal mine as well as identify potential economic development opportunities in the region; determine the social impact, and identify the region’s natural, built, social, financial, political and human assets that can be used to propel the economy of the region forward; and, new opportunity that the regional can capitalize on. Along with the two counties the other participating communities include Castor, Coronation, Halkirk, and Forestburg.

AUMA meetings

Councillors reported on various meetings they had with government officials noting one of their best meetings was with the Environment department explaining that they asked a lot of questions regarding wind and solar farms and regulations involving protection for the landowner. Oil and gas is regulated heavily protecting the farmer including a ‘orphan well’ proponent but wind farms have no regulations. There is no protection, no subsides, nothing in place for when wind farm companies go broke or reaches the end of their life span. “We’re fortunate that Capital Power (Halkirk Wind Farm) has deep pockets,” said Coun. Rocky Dalmer. “They listened, took notes. They

were searching for answers,” said Dalmer.

Alberta Transportation

Discussions with Alberta Transportation confirmed that the Coronation highway should see some pavement in 2017; between Halkirk and Castor in 2018, and between Halkirk and Stettler and Coronation to Veteran in 2022 but Coun. Dalmer stated there was nothing official. He did, however note that Alberta Transportation had indicated they were back in the weed control business.

Needs Assessment

A final Needs Assessment report is now complete and in the hands of the Paintearth Seniors Housing board and Assisted Living. A facilitator from the government will be hired to go through with all stakeholders at the meeting planned for Dec. 1, 2016 with the expectation of how all stakeholders can all work together. Councillors confirmed they had received the preliminary report but had not received the final report other than board member Walter Weber. Turn to Budget, Pg 4

A dispute between two Alix businesses has divided residents, thrust the village in the middle and involved the RCMP. The disagreement between Alix Shoppes and Alix Home Hardware over their easements erupted earlier this year. Malonie and Marcel Grimard, owners of Alix Shoppes, said Alix Home Hardware’s easement encroached on their easement. Grimard said when they bought the building two years ago they approached the town because their access was only four feet and not the nine it was supposed to be. “The garden centre from Home Hardware was on our easement and because the land had been raised up, it was causing problems with water drainage on our property,” she said. Grimard added that Alix Shoppes wanted to put up outdoor tables for their customers but couldn’t because Home Hardware’s fence encroached on presents their their easement. After an in-camera session Nov. 2, Alix council passed a motion that Home Hardware’s occupation of the said lot constituted an actionable trespass.

approximately 50 pieces of equipment in 1975 to 214 pieces today. That growth has paralleled rising public expectations, along with increased demands, including the recent additions of the Hamlets of Strome and Galahad now under the County’s governance. Each individual piece of equipment is also much larger in 2016 compared to 1975. We are simply unable to accommodate more than four decades of growth and progress within our current facility. Fortunately, now is a good time to build. In order to ensure efficient cost savings and capitalize on current market conditions, construction is targeted to begin in the summer of 2017

with completion by the spring of 2018. Rather than tearing down the current building, it will be used primarily for storage. MSI Grant funding is earmarked for the bulk of the project. Remaining costs are expected to be covered by Building Reserves. No debenture borrowing will be required. Following an extensive tendering process, Flagstaff County Council awarded the project management services contract at their Sept. 28 meeting to Edmontonbased RPM Consulting Services Inc. As part of the planning phase, a needs assessment is now underway to identify the functional needs of the new maintenance shop.

Coronation RCMP investigate a break and enter, theft The Coronation RCMP are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying suspect(s) responsible for a break, enter and theft in Coronation, Ab. sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. on Nov. 8 at least two suspects driving a dark colored minivan broke in one of the sheds at The Moose Cave Bar in Coronation. Once the suspects broke into the shed they proceed to steal liquor and meat products stored there.

Theft from a truck

In another incident, during the evening and morning of Nov. 7 - 8, a large black custom made, truck tool box with the brand 3Vwelded on it was stolen from the back of a truck that was parked at a motel in Coronation.

Wildlife Act offences

Coronation RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying suspects believed to have committed multiple offences to the Trespass to Premises Act and Wildlife Act.

ON THE OTHER HAND

Carelessness towards the truth by B. Schimke Unfortunately throughout the history of mankind, extreme seasons of hatred are a regular occurrence. Most cases of hatred revolve around religion, race and superiority. Travel to Northern Ireland and experience the seething hatred even today between the Catholics and Protestants. The former Soviet-bloc country, Yugoslavia, when it broke the chains of Communism, entered a period of brutal war finding peace only after the creation of six countries along religious and ethnic lines.

If we use only social

media or coffee shop conversations as our news sources and take no personal initiative to verify the facts behind the

Conservative race, Kellie Leitch, is basing her campaign solely on antiimmigrant rhetoric and fear. Hatred begets more hatred and once the ball starts rolling, it is very hard to stop. Hatred is always based on untruths and demonization of peoples that we do not interact with or know. Oxford dictionary has chosen this year the hyphenated word—‘posttruth’ as its new word for 2016. We have clearly entered a season where truth is old-fashioned and irrelevant. Reality TV shows, think tanks, consolidation of traditional media in the hands of a few, social media and the internet have been agents of this radical move away from the truth. It is intriguing the number of people on social media that have been arguing with bots—a software application that runs automated scripts over the internet. Bots are self-serving propaganda tools used by an unknown someone to indoctrinate people with their viewpoint. Then there are fake news stories on social media platforms such as Facebook. The more outrageous the story, the more hits, the more money for the creator of the news. It all ties together, when we have never befriended or regularly rubbed shoulders with someone who is of a different race, religion, colour or sexual orientation, we don’t see them as a human beings. Such was the most disgusting example of dehumanization when a West Virginia county worker called First Lady Michelle Obama an “ape in heels” and a small town mayor posted a like for that comment. If we use only social media or coffee shop conversations as our news sources and take no personal initiative to verify the facts behind the words, we become victims of propaganda. Untruth and hatred walk hand in hand. I don’t think there should be any surprise about the current level of hatred that is erupting in first-world, democratic countries today, including Canada. It’s simply a judgement on all of us for our carelessness towards the truth.

words, we become victims of propaganda.

I have not read enough history to understand the divide between Sunnis and Shia Muslims, but I suspect it is similar to the divide between Catholics and Protestants—those who read the same Holy Words, worship the same God, yet elevate oneself to the superior interpretation. Last week in Ottawa racist slurs and symbols vandalized a mosque, Jewish synagogue and a Christian church with a predominately black congregation. Last week the only two women candidates for the Progressive Leadership campaign in Alberta dropped out. Long-term Conservative MLA, Sandra Jensen could no longer stomach the smear and insult campaign that the radical right unleashed against her because of her belief that all peoples have the right to be heard and represented.

Honest open dialogue will produce the best governance Dear Editor, When I ran and was elected by the taxpayers of the County of Stettler in the Oct. 2013 municipal election, I publicly accepted the oath I swore to uphold the office of Councillor. Since then I have held the position with honour and have been privileged to maintain the trust you have requested of me - to serve you the best way I can . Thankfully we live in a democracy, where everyone can obtain information and provide their thoughts in such a way that governance of our locality is done for the people by the people. I do not presume to know what everyone wants or desires - that can only be obtained through conversations that provide understanding and knowledge of events that will or have transpired . Fundamentally, only honest open dialogue will produce the best governance. As many of you know, I firmly believe the best way to prevent and eliminate gossip is through the transference of information. Therefore, I would like to thank everyone that has had the opportunity in the past to engage me in dialogue and request the same of those that haven’t yet had this opportunity. Therefore, I would like to thank the six related taxpayers that wrote the letter whereby they expressed concern that I may have been involved in an issue regarding the new Public Works shop, but I haven’t had the opportunity to respond to until now. To their concern I gladly provide the following: • In 2016, the contract for building the Public works shop was awarded to Scott Builders by Council as recom-

mended by Administration. • In the fall of 2016, the Administration of the County of Stettler tendered three water lines, two of which were awarded to Wally’s Backhoe. The third contract was recommended by Administration to be awarded to Action Plumbing. There were three options available for the main line to the County Public Works Shop: a single 3” line, an option for a double 3”, and a 6” for which contractors were requested to provide a sealed bid price for each. Council accepted Administration’s recommendation and unanimously voted to go with two contracts consisting of two single 3” water service lines (because of price/value), and Wally’s Backhoe was awarded both. • No list of sub-contractors was requested by Administration. None was presented to Council for approval or disqualification. Totally independent of myself and Gendre Construction Inc., Wally’s Backhoe contracted Diablo Directional Boring Ltd. for installation of a water line. • Gendre Construction Inc. has installed waterlines for the past 10 years throughout central and eastern Alberta. The last installation taken on by the Company was Nov. 2014 for a price of $50.00/M - pipe included at a cost of $5/M. Through my insistence with regards to protecting the taxpaying public, I pursued tendering as a way of holding Administration and Council to being fiscally responsible. Since the fall of 2015, the County has saved approx. $200,000 via a price reduction on water lines from $65/M to $35/M on approx. 6,000M of pipe installation since the tendering process has started.

Wind and solar plans have Albertans worried The NDP government’s plan to overhaul our electricity grid has farmers and ranchers in southern Alberta worried, and rightly so. In Ontario – unsightly, governmentsubsidized wind and solar projects have devastated local economies, viewsheds and property values – and rural Ontarians are upset. A columnist for the Financial Post called this debacle “the biggest unreported story in the Ontario media.” Now – the NDP is determined to take a similar approach here as was taken in Ontario – but with little to no consultation with local municipalities and landowners first. This is concerning for a number of reasons, but particularly with respect to property rights. The former PC government used heavy-handed tactics to ensure landowners were no obstacle to their grandiose transmission projects in

2009. The government of the day passed draconian legislation in Bill 50 specifically for that purpose, and also brought in Bill 36, the Alberta Land Stewardship Act, to empower it to take or devalue the property of Alberta landowners without providing fair compensation or hearing. At the time, the NDP was a fierce critic of Bill 36, but now the NDP is actually defending Bill 36 and refusing to repeal it, leaving many to wonder if sidelining landowner rights is the name of the game with respect to wind and solar projects in the southern part of the province. Recently, I brought this concern to the Legislature, and asked the NDP the following questions point-blank: Where exactly are these wind and solar projects going to be located? Will the NDP confirm that there are no plans to use Bill 36 to force wind and solar projects through areas where

landowners don’t want them? Will landowners affected by any changes be compensated at fair market value? Given the size and scope of the NDP’s renewable energy plans, I expected to hear some half-decent answers. Unfortunately, all I got was vague, half-hearted commitments. The NDP truly had no real answers for southern Albertan landowners, and this is of great concern. (You can watch this exchange from question period at: wildro.se/windandsolar.) Issues of property rights only scratch the surface of the problems that could arise for Albertans if the NDP does not consult or do its due diligence before it presses ahead, however. I have already heard heartbreaking reports from folks in Lethbridge County and Warner County who are feeling gutted over The Stirling Wind Project – 46 wind turbines planned for the Lethbridge area. I share the same

concerns they have: property values and compensation, expropriation, tourism, animal habitats, view-sheds and the constant noise the blades on these turbines make. Many of these concerned Albertans are retirees who, after dedicating their lives to making our province a better place to live and work, just want to retire in peace and quiet. I and my Wildrose colleagues are urging the government to do more consultation with local decision-makers before green-lighting a bunch of new projects. We are the only caucus in the Legislature taking this issue seriously, it seems. Fortunately, unlike the folks in rural Ontario who wish they could go back in time and fight the development of these devastating projects, we have a chance to correct our course before it’s too late. Pat Stier is the Wildrose Shadow Minister for Municipal Affairs and the MLA for Livingstone–Macleod

Cont’d from Pg 6 Both elected and appointed officials must always be cognizant of these expectations and not let personal feelings or biases tempt them to impose these feelings or biases without thought or consideration of the electorate. At the federal and provincial levels of government there are visible ‘checks and balances’ – one being an elected opposition. Often overlooked and not considered by municipal government is that the citizens are, in a sense, the opposition (in this connotation opposition is defined as ‘the political party not in power’). All Canadian governments are elected democratically by the majority

of eligible citizens but this does not mean they have a mandate to rule arbitrarily with the expectation that they cannot be challenged by the electorate from time to time. I am quite concerned when I hear an elected official make a statement, in response to a citizen’s concerns, such as: “If you want change you should run for office”. Also, when the implementation of a policy has been questioned and clarity is requested as to how and why said policy was enacted - official response being – “because we can”. Elected officials bear the responsibility of engaging citizens in a respectful manner and not letting themselves be caught up in petty tactics which intimidate, marginalize or

otherwise impede citizens’ access to the democratic process. In some jurisdictions the municipal government has less governing members than local clubs and groups. As well, we, as citizens, have an obligation to be respectful of others’ opinions and concerns and are bound to research the facts of any and all situations involving government, groups or individuals. Never should anyone resort to ‘over the fence’ uninformed discussions, consider a difference of opinion to be ‘negative’ or propagate anonymous ‘hate’ mail. Remember Them – Lest We Forget Respectfully submitted, Howard Helton Morrin, Ab.

Cont’d from Pg 6 • True to my word, I’ve always engaged the taxpayers of the County with information that can be verified. I believe that our County should be run as a business, not in the political environment that politicians seem to desire. It’s time that politicians realize that neither a business nor a service such as the County of Stettler can afford to present anything but the truth and the whole truth. Not that I have to, but for the sake of openness and to prevent gossip, Ryan and I provide the following personal information regarding our two companies: • Nancy and I have always and still own 100 per cent of Gendre Construction Inc. Ryan has never nor does he have any ownership whatsoever in Gendre Construction Inc. • Ryan Gendre has always and still owns 100 per cent of Diablo Directional Boring Ltd. Neither Nancy nor I have

ever owned nor do we have any ownership whatsoever in Diablo Directional Boring Ltd. • Neither Nancy nor I had any involvement whatsoever in Diablo bidding or winning the contract with the Wally’s Backhoe. • Ryan, Nancy, and I gladly provide this information to the County’s residents and businesses and to the Stettler For Details Independent and

Red Deer Advocate, both news media that kindly asked for information. Ernie Gendre Stettler, Ab.

OBITUARIES

Unique innocent sense of humour

Joy Frieda Kobi It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joy Frieda Kobi (Gridley). Joy passed away peacefully at the Stettler Hospital on Nov. 22, 2016 at the age of 71. She was on a journey to health but suffered a stroke in early November, a huge setback, from which she was unable to recover. Joy was Kobi born in Big Valley on March 20, 1945 and grew up on the family farm near Scollard. Joy graduated from Big Valley High School and made her family proud when she was chosen to be the first recipient of the Lloyd Lohr Scholarship. She went on to attend the University of Alberta and graduated with a Certificate in Education. She taught at various schools in the Stettler County including Donalda, Erskine and Big Valley. Her passion was teaching French, a language she

loved. Soon Joy was swept off her feet by Dale Kobi and they married April 12, 1966. After this Joy devoted the majority of her time raising her family. She was blessed with two children, Janine and Kevin. Joy enjoyed spending the summer months at home with her children, their friends, and her nieces and nephews. Seldom did she miss out on a day at the pool, a good water fight or a game of kick the can. In the later years Joy was often found at the race track cheering on her family as they raced chuckwagons and chariots around the track. She was always relieved when the races were all over. In 1994, Joy was blessed with granddaughter, Kayla, who then became the center of her world. Kayla’s singing often filled the house and was a highlight in Joy’s day. Joy’s interests in natural health lead to employment at the Fruit of the Vine Health Food Store in Stettler where she gained and shared a wealth of knowl-

Services for Gloria Dion Gloria Jean Dion was born on June 15, 1952 in Calgary, Ab. to parents Lucille and Andrew Arrol. Gloria passed away suddenly on Nov. 21, 2016 in Castor, Ab. at the age of 64 years. Gloria is survived by her two loving sons, Kevin (Krista) McLean of Sherwood Park, Ab. and David (Holly) McLean of Stettler, Ab.; beloved grandchildren: Bradan (Brittany), Brandt, Dion Elle Spitzke, Shayla and Tyson McLean; brother Brian (Barb) Arrol, sister Cheryl (Jack) Ladick, sister Shawna (Guy) Pealey, brother Shane (Shelley) Arrol; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends. Gloria was predeceased by her precious son Kenneth McLean, her parents Lucille

and Andrew Arrol and her beloved husband Lucien Dion. A gathering of family and friends was held on Fri., Nov. 25, 2016 in the Castor Legion Hall, Castor, Ab. to celebrate Gloria’s life. Donations in Gloria’s memory are gratefully accepted to Our Lady of the Rosary Hospital Foundation, Alberta Diabetes Foundation or a charity of your choice c/o Parkview Funeral Chapels & Crematorium, Box 186, Castor, Alberta T0C 0X0, 403-882-3141, who were entrusted with the care and arrangements.

edge about healthy alternatives. Changes were underway at the health food store and Joy’s love of clothes landed her a job at the Treasure Shoppe. Later she was able to purchase the store. Joy loved working in her store and loved to help people look and dress their best. She had an amazing sense of style. Joy excelled in bowling and belonged to several leagues. She competed in various tournaments and won many awards. Joy had a unique innocent sense of humour and could

always make you laugh no matter what the circumstances. She was a very kind, caring person and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Joy will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 50 years, Dale Kobi, children, Janine Kobi (Brian Duke), Kevin Kobi (Tracy Breitkreutz) and granddaughter, Kayla Kobi. Joy is also survived by her sisters Laura Hood, Ivy Mewha (Don), Marilyn Stewart-Irvine (Al), her brothers, Arnold Gridley (Sharon Cooper) and Ted Gridley and her sister-inlaw, Marie Gridley.

Joy was predeceased by her Mom and Dad, Frieda and Raymond Gridley, and also by her brother, Halley Gridley. Service will be held at Stettler Funeral Home on Sat.

Notification of AESO Regulatory Filing Addressing the Need for Transmission Development in Central East Alberta The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) advises you that it intends to file a Needs Identification Document (NID) for the approval of transmission system reinforcement in central eastern Alberta. The proposed reinforcement is comprised of a 240 kV transmission line, energized at 138 kV, from the existing Hansman Lake 650S substation to the existing Edgerton 899S substation and a new 240 kV transmission line, energized at 144 kV, from the existing Nilrem 574S substation to a new substation in the Vermilion area, to be named Drury 2007S substation. The NID will be filed with the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) on or after December 16, 2016. In the same application, the AESO will also ask that the AUC approve cancellation of certain Central East Transmission Developments (CETD). The proposed transmission reinforcement is required to maintain the reliability of electricity supply to homes, businesses and industry in central eastern Alberta, and will provide expanded options to connect generation in the area, should it develop. Between October and November, 2016, the AESO notified stakeholders, including residents, occupants and landowners, regarding the need for the proposed transmission system reinforcement, cancellation of the CETD components, and its intention to apply to the AUC for approval of the NID. Once filed, the NID will be posted on the AESO website at https://www.aeso.ca/grid/projects/penv

16114MA3

The shaded and cross-hatched area in the map indicates the approximate area where the AESO has reasonably determined that transmission system facilities could be installed to implement the proposed reinforcement. In separate applications called a Facilities Application, AltaLink Management Ltd. (AltaLink) and ATCO Electric Ltd. (ATCO), the transmission facilities owners (TFOs) in the area, will describe the specific routes they propose to implement the transmission system reinforcement, and request AUC approval to construct and operate the specific transmission facilities. The specific line routes and Drury 2007S substation location applied for by the TFOs may extend beyond the area shown.

For more information, please visit www.aeso.ca or contact the AESO at 1-888-866-2959 stakeholder.relations@aeso.ca

Castor Museum Society is looking for ways to raise money to replace the one-storey ‘freight shed’ that requires major repairs to the foundation and structure.

Castor Museum needs major work

Members of the Castor Museum Society noticed this summer that the floor in the ‘freight shed’ had dropped about four inches According to member, John Wright, the old 2-storey railroad station house was moved onto it’s present location in approximately 1978 - 79 and the single storey freight house soon followed. However, the station house was placed on a cement foundation while the freight shed was placed on railroad ties. Those ties have rotted and although not sure if it is unsafe for the public, it

Time to move on Cont’d from Pg 3 “I wrote a letter to request to renew the lease with new boundaries determined mutually,” he said. CAO Jenkins said after legal advice it was determined the village was within its rights to terminate Peterson’s lease and the village didn’t consider his appeal. “No appeal was made on the trespass motion,” he added. Peterson said he didn’t know that his fence was built on Alix Shoppes’ easement when he put it up. “I was told to keep the swale open. I’ve done everything they (village) said in my lease. The CAO at that time made a mistake and did not go back and see what the easement said. I didn’t know where the easement was. I put it (fence) in the exact spot where I was told.” Peterson said he recently offered to move his fence to make room for a table and four chairs after Marcel Grimard suggested that as a solution. “It was his (Marcel) idea. I give him credit for it.” But Peterson claimed when he and Marcel went up to measure where the fence should be he was “verbally and almost physically accosted” by another man.

Bashaw RCMP said that although they have been called to Alix no charges have been laid against anyone. Earlier this month the Village of Alix received a $25,925 invoice from Grimard accusing the village of breaching its easement agreement. “We will not be paying this invoice,” said CAO Jenkins. We are moving on. Advance Tickets: $25.00 At the Door: $30.00 Alix Shoppes have their remedies should they choose them. Our job is to bring our community together and strengthen our municipality. “The legal fees continuing to be incurred are also coming out the taxpayers’ pockets,” added CAO Jenkins. “The allegations being made are frivolous and untrue.
