Dessert Theatre. A Boomtown Trail initiative, the theatre was aimed at excavating rural Alberta’s stores of local history to entertain modern audiences, with proceeds going to the Alix Wagon Wheel museum. The ambience of the evening was furnished by a lively fullhouse crowd; an open, welcoming venue and a dessert table that extended as far as the eye could see with volunteermade goods. Though she couldn’t attend, Wagon Wheel historian Eve Keates was discussed fondly as one of the champions of local history in Alix.

‘Conductor’ Ken Duncan, CAO of the Boomtown Trail Community Initiatives Society, introduced the evening with anecdotes about the humble beginnings of dessert-based theatre (hint: it involved a distinct distaste by some citizenry for cooking elaborate meals). Duncan also made mention of the continued success of the organization in promoting affiliated communities; efforts that were recognized when the Boomtown Trail was awarded the Governor General Award in November of 2013.

Education and eloquence

The evening was launched back in time by a monologue from Barbara Cormack, a prolific writer, poet and education reformer active from the depression era onward who lived most of her life in Alix. Speaking through Alix resident Elaine Meehan, Cormack’s history was presented in an informative, emotional manner. Meehan spoke about Cormack’s life from a literary perspective, using eloquence and poise to describe her life history from

Gabriel Dumont, Lieutenant of Louis Riel, speaks to a captivated audience at the Dessert Theatre in Alix, AB on January 1, 2014. Stettler native Bob Willis played the part of the historical figure with purpose and flair. ECA Review/K. Davis

wartime concerns to time spent on the sandy shores of Tanglefoot Lake during the depression. She gave voice to the deeply personal aspects of Cormack’s life with intensity, highlighting her struggles with community perception upon the birth and subsequent education of her child with Downs Syndrome, which was profoundly misunderstood at the time. She spoke to Cormack’s accomplishments, such as helping to initiate a school for those with unique mental and physical needs, with humility and grace. Hers was a speech that informed to the resilience of character in times past, despite hardships.

Zeal and humour

After a short intermission, within which patrons were finally permitted to swoop down upon the myriad of desserts waiting to be consumed, the second woman to approach the podium was introduced. Mrs. Bashaw, played by Laura Graham, was the wife of the Town of Bashaw’s namesake Eugene Bashaw. She began her address by speaking at length about various cleanliness and washing techniques - no doubt a ploy to see to it that the men of the audience ‘left’, thus leaving Bashaw hypothetically alone with the women. In her thick Swiss accent, Graham began to speak of the women’s suffrage movement, outlining her outrage that women were not allowed to vote and expressing distaste at gambling and drinking run rampant in the early twentieth century. With bursts of energy and tones of absolute seriousness, Graham led the audience through a convincing plea that women should gather together in support of the women’s vote and

Bravery and dedication

After another intermission, with more desserts abound, a tall figure with a serious countenance drifted in, surveying the crowd with stern purpose. This gentleman introduced himself as Gabriel Dumont, Louis Riel’s Lieutenant and a member of the Métis of the South Saskatchewan River. Played by Stettler’s Bob Willis, the story of Dumont had the crowd rapt; nobody spoke a word as Willis glided around the room, speaking of great battles and Métis tenacity in the face of the incursion by Canadian forces during the battles of Fish Creek and Batoche. As he told his tale of courage and valour, voice echoing the spirit of this strong, resolute historical figure, the audience sat transfixed. Many had their eyes closed, listening, or were following the narrative with nods and subtle smiles of agreement. Willis’ embodiment of Dumont brought forth a nostalgia for a time of oral tradition, when stories had an immediate presence and the emotion of lived history was felt as a community. Dumont resolved the evening upon his final words and the crowd roused to an applause, collectively acknowledging the transformative effect of experiencing a shared history in real time.

women’s rights more broadly. She condemned the act of gambling, which she was quick to point out her husband partook in, and flagged excessive drinking as the cause of many broken families. In the context of history, hers was a speech of boldness and strength, educating the audience in the passions of an intelligent, determined woman during a time of flux for members of this gender.

One bus travels around the earth 40 times each year Brenda Schimke News Journalist The number of kilometres Clearview buses cover in one year is the equivalent of one bus travelling around the earth close to 40 times, it was revealed at the Clearview School district meeting on January 30, 2014. Clearview has approximately 54 active routes, transporting 1,300 students daily, representing 54 per cent of their total student population. After much discussion and a split vote, a motion was passed to proceed with a Request for Quotation towards the purchase of two 70-passenger seat buses (seats 46 high school students) and six 46-passenger buses (seats 36 high school students). Five voted for the motion with Trustees Cassidy and Schofer voting against. Administration estimates the eight buses will cost $730,000 and will be funded through reserves which are built up by amortizing buses over a 10-year period. Administration wanted the flexibility offered by purchasing larger buses, noting a 46-passenger bus costs only $1,500 more than a 36-passenger bus and has underfloor storage which is beneficial for extracurricular trips. Trustees Cassidy and Schofer argued large buses with few students angers taxpayers. “Why buy bigger buses than we need,” asked Cassidy. “$1,500 times eight adds up, smaller buses are more fuel efficient and have a smoother ride.” Trustees Holloway and Schofer expressed surprise that diesel engines were starting to have major troubles at 300,000 km. Maryann Wingie, Director of Transportation was in attendance and explained the large number of kilometres travelled on gravel and/or unplowed roads have a significant impact on the life of vehicles. She also said parts are often not available after 10 years. An analysis was done on whether micro buses should be considered for those sparsely-located students or whether parents be offered payment to drive their children to school. Neither option made economic sense. If a school district paid a parent to drive their children, the provincial funding for that student would be lost. Microbuses have been used in Prairieland and Prairie Rose School Divisions for daily runs and other divisions have tried microbuses for special needs students and extracurricular activities. The most frequent feedback gathered from these users was concerns about stability and safety, higher maintenance costs from damage on gravel roads, frequency of being stuck in snow and mud, significant lower body damage and rust and lower life expectancy.

Four-day school week

In an attempt to become more collaborative, less top down and provide parents, teachers, communities and students with fewer surprises, members of the Clearview School Board will be seeking input on whether to consider Botha, Byemoor, Erskine, Big Valley and Donalda schools for a four-day week. The joint Board/School Council meeting in Stettler on February 13 is another opportunity for the Board to receive feedback.

Funding bus routes

With the current Alberta government transportation funding formula of ‘x’ amount per student, rural school districts are in a financial deficit position while urban school districts usually end up with a windfall from their bussing grants. Each year, Clearview has to find up to $500,000 from allocated dollars to subsidize the shortfall in transportation funding. This year the division has generated the extra from non-revenue riders ($210,000) and the Equity of Opportunity Grant ($300,000). To date, the government has allowed Districts to keep money from students who are eligible for bus service, but never use it (non-revenue riders). On request from the previous Board, Administration provided a comprehensive breakdown of funding generated by route versus the cost of each route. Not unexpectedly, the routes with the fewest children and the most kilometres were grossly underfunded by the current formula, since the formula has no correlation to expenses (operating costs per kilometre). The Transportation Department continues to look for efficiencies. One obvious cost saving, which has been actively pursued by the Clearview Board for some years, is a cooperative bussing agreement with the East Central Catholic School District in the County for Stettler. Such an agreement is in place in the County of Paintearth and is cost-efficient for taxpayers. Dave Goodwin mentioned that he’s been told that the Catholic Board has been reluctant to enter into an agreement because of something that happened 10 or 12 years ago.

Cooperative programming

two questions need to be answered. (1) Does the proposed change make educational sense for students? (2) If cost savings are the goal, then those cost savings would need to be significant enough to outweigh other factors (i.e. increased travel time for students).

Learning assessments

Replacing the Provincial Achievement Tests (PAT), with Student Learning Assessments (SLA) is now underway. This June, Grade 3 students will write SLAs, Grade 6 will transition from PATs to SLAs in September 2015 and Grade 12 will make the switch in September 2016. In a report prepared by Superintendent, John Bailey, it was written that “principals have reported people seem to be relieved that the old style test is finally being replaced with an assessment tool which will support Alberta Education’s direction of personalized learning based on a child’s strengths or areas needing improvement at the start of a school year.”

Ken Checkel on behalf of Clearview’s students, parents and communities wrote a letter to Fred Horne, Minister of Health dated January 22, 2014 expressing support for the continuation of the Mental Health Capacity Building in Schools Initiative (MHCB). The School Board is seeking continued funding beyond June of 2014 when the current partnership expires. Clearview’s experience has been that this kind of investment in prevention leads to less reactive and crisis management needs in the future. Children, youth and families are better able to self-protect and invest in their own mental health and well-being which in turn has a direct correlation with the child’s ability to be successful in school.

Stettler native Ken Gabriel wrote a song that appears on the Nashville Songwriter’s Holiday Album released in 2013. Titled “Amy,” the song was sung by Country music star Michael Lusk, who has performed with the likes of Martina McBride, Marty Stuart and Loretta Lynn. Gabriel notes that the inspiration for his homage to Amy began in a grocery store after he saw an inspiring sight. “It all started back when I was in Red Deer in ‘96, way downtown at the IGA,” he says. “It started out as a grocery store song with a girl named Amy.”

Hanna school to realize modernization

For the Nashville release he changed the lyrics to revolve around seeing a girl named Amy at the Stettler arena to help promote an interest in the area. “They thought the song might blend in to the Christmas album, and help out the community in Stettler,” Gabriel says. Amy is one of seven songs on the showcase sung by Lust, which gave the song more chance of airplay. “The radio station [in Stettler] got a good response from the song,” Gabriel noted. Amy is Gabriel’s second foray into professionally-recorded songwriting. His first song, “Cresent Falls,” was sung by Lynn Wolf and appeared on a Nashville Songwriter’s Showcase album in 2012. He describes the process of song submission as a method of talent,

Katie Davis News Reporter An announcement of expansive modernization was made by Minister of Education Jeff Johnson at J.C. Charyk school in Hanna on January 29, 2014. It was revealed that the school will be modernized to accommodate the addition of Kindergarten to Grade 3 students from the Hanna Primary School, which is scheduled to be closed down. Press Secretary to the Minister, Dan Powers, says work will be done on the 1967 and 1994 sections of the school and modernization costs will likely exceed more than $10,000.

preparation and luck. “I send my CD’s to Nashville and when my songs are accepted they go and record it in three weeks,” he says. “One out of every 30 songs [received] is given a chance.” Gabriel says he is working on finishing up four more tunes and plans to do another showcase if time allows. Though Gabriel’s never been to Nashville, he keeps up an active musical life by participating in events around town. “I like singing karaoke, I used to sing in Red Deer,” he notes. “I really like singing the Beatles, Paul McCartney and things like that.” Those with interest in receiving an album can send their phone number to Box 873, Stettler, AB T0C 1C0.

Sad reflection of our society Dear Editor, I read with interest Marrian Bertin’s Letter to the Editor (“How can they sleep at night?” January 23, 2014). It seems the abandonment of animals is a problem everywhere. We live in Hughenden, where our daughter has helped stray (abandoned) pets for many years. Of course, family and friends try to do their part to help too. She spends a good deal of money for food, shelter, heat lamps and vet bills. What a sad reflection of our society that

so many people put out their cats or dogs when they move away, or drop them off out in the country to fend for themselves or become food for the coyotes. Thank goodness for kind-hearted people who wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if they didn’t do something to ease the suffering of these pets. Shame on you people who think that your pets are disposable when they become an inconvenience to you! Cathy Cooper Hughenden, AB.

Dear Editor, Would you please allow me the luxury of venting about a topic I have deep personal feelings about at this point in my life. To begin with, various news stations are focusing this week on the disturbing story of a large, gentle rescue dog, discovered with two gunshot wounds; one in the stomach, another shattering a thigh-bone. Though suffering, Shania, as she has been named, is now safe at a wonderful vet clinic in Edmonton that isn’t asking for money first before beginning expensive treatments. Just now, a news clip ran on the screen that thanks to an outpouring of donations made, the vet reports he can save her leg. The dog will not ever be 100 per cent but she will live. My dog did not live. [Editor’s Note: Chippy, the Loyalist Dog Kennel’s mascot, was shot twice while in his kennel]. If the truth be known, I’m having trouble dealing with the fact so many lowlives are finding it to be a great sport to grab a gun and do some target practice but they don’t go to the shooting range. No, some family pets are ending up in their

cross-hairs, as did Chippy. It’s been my observation that the guilty parties, for the most part, are knuckledraggers; just not that intelligent. Put a gun in their sweaty hands, they shoot at an easy target, the neighbour’s dog. But now they’ve got a mess to try and sort their way out of. Hide the corpse and deny, deny, deny. These spineless creeps rarely man up to the owners about the dog’s fate. The murder of my little dog brought this glaring flaw right out in the open. Chip didn’t die in vain; there is a large ground-swell of outrage and disgust over this murder. Most everyone in the Consort area has a pretty good idea who the perpetrators are. An interesting slant I found out is that older people are viewing this to be an act of bullying toward a senior living alone in the country. I had not a thought in this direction but it does make one stop and ponder, just a little. Thank you for your time. Leona Walsh, Loyalist Dog Kennels

Pets ending up in the cross-hairs

Desensitized to the plight of people Dear Editor, In response to Marrian Bertin’s letter in the January 23 issue of the Review; her concerns about how cruel it is to abandon animals who depend on their owners to feed and shelter them. Yes, it is tragic, but how about the seniors and children who are often left in much the same situations? Seems to us that people aught to be more important than animals, cats in particular. However, it seems that the world is far more concerned about animals, becoming more and more desensitized to the plight of people.

Five tips to help you stick to your budget PHOTO: SIRI STAFFORD / THINKSTOCK

Drawing up a budget is great, but you have to be able to stick to it. Here are five tips to help you keep your good resolutions.

1. SET AN OBJECTIVE. You’re more likely to stick to your budget if you have a precise project in mind. If you want to put some money aside to buy a house, put a picture of your dream home on the fridge or use it as a

Do you know your tax rate?


Your tax rate is the percentage of income tax that you have to pay after calculating your taxable income. In Canada, the tax rate takes into account four different tax brackets, or segments. Taxable income is very simple to calculate; it is your total income, minus all allowable deductions and exemptions. This amount is the one taken into account when determining which tax bracket you belong to and therefore which tax rate is applicable. Every year, tax brackets are readjusted according to the rate of inf lation. Visit the website of the

Revenue Canada Agency ( to find the tax rates in effect for the current year. As well as federal tax bracket tables, there are also those issued by provincial governments. All Canadian provinces and territories have their own applicable tax rate tables that correspond with taxable income. All the provinces and territories have a progressive taxation system (a tax rate that varies with revenue) with the exception of Alberta, which applies the same tax rate to all its residents. What is the benefit of knowing your tax rate? Finding out which bracket you belong to may encourage you to research ways to reduce your taxes and increase your savings. Paying less income tax and saving more money is an interesting concept, right?

screen saver. Do the same thing for any project close to your heart.

2. PAY CASH. Does your budget really allow you to spend $225 per week? Pay everything in cash and leave your credit cards at home. It’s much easier to limit your spending when you can see your money disappearing right before your eyes. 3. ORGANIZE YOUR PAPERS. Sort out your papers every week. A few minutes are enough to sort bills and documents and take note of your expenses. Don’t wait for the pile to grow into a mountain!

5. REWARD YOURSELF. Treating yourself once in a while is your just reward for sticking to your budget. A good meal out, a show, a fashionable new sweater, or a ticket to a game is a great way to motivate yourself to keep up the good work.

Canadian tax rates take into account four income tax brackets.

4. PLAN AHEAD. Create a “just in case� fund and only use it in an emergency. Any unexpected expenses, such as the water heater springing a leak or your car breaking down, will be easier to deal with and won’t shake up your financial stability.

Johnson Connor Agencies Providing trusted General Insurance coverage

What role do finances play in your couple? Are you able to talk about budgeting with your partner without tearing your hair out? Or are finances a forbidden subject? Discussing money with your life partner is not always easy. There’s nothing romantic about sitting around the kitchen table talking about such delicate subjects as income, expenses, and debts. And yet it’s crucial to take stock of all your money matters if you want to ensure some kind of stability for your household. Financial talk doesn’t necessarily mean having to combine all your assets; however, it is advisable to quickly find the best way to organize your finances in order to avoid serious problems in the future. Be honest with each other. Are you the sort of person who spends freely, without counting? Have you already had financial problems? Don’t withhold your strengths and weaknesses where money is concerned. Draw up a communal budget. If there is a big difference in your salaries, err towards fairness rather than equality in paying the bills. Think about settling such questions as life insurance, wills, and power of attorney. In other words, everything concerned with the financial aspect of your relationship has to be discussed. Above all, don’t allow arguments about money to undermine your relationship. If necessary, meet with a financial advisor to find solutions or products adapted to your needs. For more advice about managing your finances as a couple, visit the website of the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (
