Fire & Rescue, Community Peace Officer Program and Agriculture/Field Services Fire Rescue The haze that covered the municipality last month was a stark reminder of how quickly conditions can change. Luckily, we’ve getting some moisture and cool temperatures through May and early June. Crowsnest Pass Fire Rescue hosted a Community Wildfire Preparedness event on June 1. Thanks to the residents who stopped by the Elks Hall to learn about different ways to make a home Fire Smart. On May 30, our members put on an auto-extrication demonstration for CCHS students. The demo is done in co-operation with the PARTY program and is meant to show students the consequences of driving, or allowing a friend to drive, under the influence. June and July will continue to be busy months for us as we look forward to community events such as Bellcrest Days. Our training roster is also packed as we look to practice more seasonal skills such as swift water rescue, Bear Awareness and some of our members work towards their firefighter accreditation. Thank you for your support and be sure to follow us on Facebook for more information on our activities. Community Peace Officer Program Garbage was an issue in May and the public is reminded that we live in an area with bears. Bears are extremely attracted to the scent of garbage and once they have a good lunch there, they will keep coming back. Ultimately this can put the bears life in danger.  The saying goes “ A fed bear is a dead bear” so think about that when putting your garbage out. BearSmart has tons of great suggestions on how we can be better at this.  Enforcement will be monitoring for compliance so to avoid punitive measures please abide by the municipal bylaw on wildlife attractants. Summer is here and the kids are going to be out enjoying all that this amazing area has to offer.  This means SLOW DOWN!!!  It’s been noticed that there have been excessive speeders in the municipality so please be mindful around the pool and other areas of recreation.  Again-SLOW DOWN! Some of the different activities have been: 79kph in 50 kph zone 98kph in 60kph zone 78kph in 60 kph passing RCMP with emergency lights activated 118kph in 80kph zone Assisted external agencies RCMP – dog bite Fish & Wildlife – garbage/ bear smart 2019 Year to Date 121 Provincial Tickets 20 Provincial Warning Tickets 224 Calls for service 8 Compliance Orders – Community Standards Bylaw 15 Removal Notices for Contraventions of Municipal/Provincial Traffic Legislation 4 Vehicles towed Protective Services wishes our public to drive safely and to be good neighbors so that the Crowsnest Pass will continue to be an amazing place to live!

game he loves, including moving away from the Crowsnest Pass at a young age. “Football is an everyday part of my life. I moved to Calgary to pursue football and to play at the highest level I possibly could so by doing that it means I live away from my home and from my family. I sacrificed my family to play football and go as far as I can.” Anderson has been playing football for the last seven years. “Pretty much since I could play I have been playing.” His life in football has taken him many different places over the years as well. “I train every day and go to numerous camps in the U.S. in Seattle and Texas and some camps around here as well.” Anderson says the dedication to the sport is something he takes seriously because it’s not something he wants to give up in the future. “I dedicate a lot of my life to football. I'm dedicating myself to football because that's the thing I want to pursue when I'm older.” The move to Calgary seems to be paying off for

Anderson as he was invited to the first ever top prospects game in Ottawa that included the best high school players in the country. Anderson says it’s an experience he won’t forget anytime soon. “It was honestly one of the best football experiences I've had in my life. I had such an amazing time and it was great to meet other kids that are just like me and have dedicated their lives to football. It was also nice to get the exposure. I've always been around and been competing against Alberta kids and it was nice to see out of province kids compete with and against me. It helped me see where my level of play is.” Having the chance to play in this game also meant getting a chance to learn from a former CFL star in Henry Burris. Anderson says he learned a lot from Burris about how to play as a team during his time in Ottawa. “He really taught the whole team how far two days of practice can come along with the comradery of the team. In two days we turned from a few guys that we new and

other guys we had no clue about, to a whole team that were bonded by play and connections. He really taught the importance and how to get that chemistry between people that you've never met before.” That speech worked as Anderson and his teammates came away with a 41-24 victory. Next up for Anderson this summer is more camps and a chance to play for Alberta. “I have a few camps this summer that I'm going to. I'm going to play in the Canada cup for team Alberta that's going on in Kingston this year.” Anderson is also in the process of finding a football home for university. “I've been talking to a few universities and I'm going to visit some like Minot State and Simon Fraser in the NCAA and I've been talking to other universities in Canada like the University of Alberta, Waterloo and the university of Ottawa. I think the next step will be talking to those coaches and hopefully getting a scholarship to go to one of those schools that fits me best as a person and athlete.”

The Simple Raven’s Post by Avner Perl

Another bloody D Day could happen, or worse I grew up with those who fought and survived the last “Great” war. The only people I knew as a child who weren't veterans were those with numbers tattooed on their arms, survivors of concentration camps. All of them told stories about their time with the partisans in every country of Europe. I remember sitting on the farm with my mom, dad was in the army, and hearing cannons and explosions. I remember the next war when a new teacher came and told us that the old teacher was a hero and will not come back and a few girls cried. We the guys were too tough to cry, we talked about revenge. I remember all of us kids looking up to see planes in the sky, while waiting to go into bomb shelters and someone says, those are ours, don’t worry. I sit with my wife in our comfortable Canadian living room watching the evening news. Its D Day 75 years later. The memories are far behind and it doesn’t look like we may have to endure what the people on D Day had to suffer, but one never knows. I am very sorry for those soldiers who reportedly “gave their lives for freedom and democracy.” A lot of them wrote their last letter back home to Canada and died a painful death on the beaches of Normandy the next day. Many young chaps were still wondering what it would have felt like to get their first kiss, which never came. I feel the same sorrow for the other soldiers who equally gallantly faced them, in German or other uniforms and suffered the same fate. We don’t celebrate them since they lost the war. The German soldiers didn’t have a better idea of why they died then our soldiers did. They just bled and died often thinking about mommy and daddy and life on the farm. The soldiers on both sides of a conflict rarely have any idea why they “gallantly give their lives.” I took many years to find out and I am still searching. On the TV screen, we are watching The President of the great empire of this generation, a man claiming proudly that he is German, with his first lady who is Russian, seated beside the aging Monarch of last generation’s Empire. Behind them clustered are our Prime Minister and other heads of states, including the Chancellor of today’s Germany. That war which killed so many young people whose graves are marked by

mation regarding any crime is urged to contact the Crowsnest Pass RCMP Detachment at 403-562-2867, or Crimestoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-422TIPS. Reminder to residents of computer scams, credit cards scams, Grandparent scams, Revenue Canada scams asking for money or cash cards and saying warrants out for arrest, do not give out personal information to persons you don't know. DO NOT OPEN EMAILS if you are suspicious of its origin. Do NOT purchase gift cards for payment to Revenue Canada.

white crosses was not a fight between Germans, Brits, Canadians, and Americans as well as others, it was a war between ideologies. It could have easily been prevented and all those boys and girls could have lived good lives and contribute to human advancement. One must remember that history is written by the victors and none of them wish to be burdened by the truth. They win so good writers produce the history we learn to love. Those who lost may have a chance next time. If any of you wish to learn some untold histories read the book The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuźnik. Here you see strange facts, verified, which would assault your sense of right and wrong. Who would have known that American companies like GM, IBM and Ford helped Germany re-arm enabling Hitler to wage the war? Does anyone know that it was against the law at the time for Germany to re-arm? Can people deny that there is a photograph of the German Führer in his office with a portrait of the famous Henry Ford above his desk? No, we can’t. In reality, American manufacturers sued their own government for bombing their factories in Germany during the war. Prescott Bush was a good friend with the German elite and later his relatives became presidents. American manufacturers largely financed and created the German war machine that the US fought against on D Day. The financiers didn’t storm the beach in Normandy, but there were some benefits. The big industries were interested in profits, but even more, enthused over the possibility of destroying the then young Soviet Union. They didn’t care much that the Soviets were exploiting their own population horribly but were afraid that Communism would spread. After all, the Socialists of Russia were against big business and did so violently. Germany at the time followed a popular leader (Austrian) of a Fascist persuasion and it was preferable to Communism. The war raged and the great powers of the world were all weakened and in need of American support. The timing was important and America was on the way to becoming the most powerful nation on Earth, but there was dissension within. America had to change its way with its own people or risk a revolution itself and only one leader predicted it and had a plan. That was Theodore Roosevelt. This is another interesting chapter in History. Back to 2019, and we see the last of the very old veterans from the D Day invasion being honoured by their countries and they publicly state. They miss their comrades and lament that they missed their chance to live. They observe the world and say we may be heading again towards a similar disaster. A German American who is displaying Fascist tendencies is thanking the old veterans for their service visibly uninterested, and the pipes wail with the thin golden trumpet finishing the show. Silence follows. Our young people must wonder. Are we finished making mistakes that cost the lives of our youth? Or are we heading towards the last showdown from which no-one will come alive? Is there a new F. D. Roosevelt in the crowd? Here is a link to my blog: Feel free to check other articles and comment.

Soapbox Cars nearing completion Getting ready for Bellecrest Days racing

DAVID SELLES Pass Herald Reporter

The grade six students at ISS are nearing the completion of their soapbox cars. The students have been working hard over the last couple months creating and building a design. Each soapbox car has been sponsored by different businesses in the Crowsnest Pass. There are a total of 18 cars being built for the different sponsors. The businesses who


sponsored a car are Teck, Riversdale Resources, Pass Powderkeg, Goosen Plumbing, Summit Home Hardware, Crowsnest Dental, CNP Allied Arts Association, The Old Dairy Ice Cream Shop, Randy Rinaldi Welding, Crowsnest Community Support Society, Alpenland, A&W, Turning Point Dance Studio, Scotiabank, Spokes and Motors and Western Financial Group. Ian Crawford, the teacher spearheading the building of these cars, says the students are nearing the end of the process and that they should be ready for the inaugural race at Bellecrest Days on June 21st. “Most of the kids are near the end. I'm hoping that by the end of the day

most of them will be ready for paint and final testing starting next week. It's going to be very close but I think most if not all of them will be ready for the 21st.” Crawford says if some of the students aren’t finished by the last scheduled day of building on June 14th, he does have some time available to give the students every opportunity to finish their cars on time. “I have more time available during the exams week in the afternoons. I'm holding that in reserves but if I need it, I have it.” As the process has gone along, the kid’s excitement has been increasing. “The kid are very ex-

cited because they're starting to see what they built now starts looking like what they imagined. There's already talk about going down the hill so I think that's going to be great. Crawford says that more excitement will come once the painting process begins and hopes that the excitement extends beyond the students building them as well. “Once colour starts showing up it's going to be even more exciting for them and I'm just hoping that at this point, thinking ahead that somebody else this summer thinks hey, we should have a race in our area, lets gather them up and have our own race.”

Castle Mountain Resort announces major infastructure upgrade In excess of $2M in resort improvements will improve snow quality and duration of upcoming seasons Herald Contributor

Castle Mountain Resort, Alberta (June 10, 2019) – Following a Master Development Plan completed in 2017, Castle Mountain Resort is set to invest more than $2M in resort infrastructure projects that will be completed in advance of the 2019/2020 season. This summer’s projects include top to bottom snowmaking infrastructure in the Huckleberry terrain pod, on Whiskey Jack run, and within the base area in addition to the purchase of state-of-the-art snowmaking machines. A natural gas line, in partnership w/ ATCO, is currently being upgraded / installed and is poised to bring natural gas to the resort for the first time, starting this fall. The additions will not only ensure more consistent snow conditions on the lower mountain &

Huckleberry terrain but also opens up the possibility of pre-season training for various user groups (race clubs and/or ski academies), pushes Castle Mountain Resort’s planned opening day one week earlier (now set as December 7) and increases the possibility of remaining open later into April. As part of its agreement with ATCO, Castle Mountain Resort also absolves itself of prior propane gas distribution responsibilities, allowing it to focus more energy on exceptional ski resort operations. “Over recent months we have closely examined the areas where we saw room for improvement at Castle Mountain Resort and looked for opportunities to create an even better experience for our residents and guests,” says Castle Mountain Resort general manager

Brad Brush. “These infrastructure updates will have an immediate and dramatic impact for our visitors and we are excited to show off these changes starting this December.” A key component of these updates is Castle Mountain Resort’s first water storage reservoir, representing a $375,000 expenditure which features a water intake in nearby Haig Creek. Designed to hold 6,700 cubic meters of water to assist in snowmaking efforts - an amount equivalent to three Olympic sized swimming pools - the reservoir will be connected to the snowmaking system as its primary water source. The resort has applied for and been issued a water license that will allow them to fill the reservoir only when water conservation objectives are met in the Castle

River. Meltwater from machine-made snow will then return to the Castle River system come spring, additive free. Snowmaking is getting a massive $1.4M investment. This includes the main pump house which is able to deliver 250 gallons per minute to Castle’s new network of waterlines, allowing four to six snow machines to run simultaneously. The pumphouse was designed with future snowmaking expansion in mind and the ability to add additional pumping capacity with subsequent implementation phases. New snowmaking infrastructure includes underground piping, electrical, hydrants, and power pedestals from the Huckleberry Reservoir to the top of Huckleberry Chairlift via Lone Ranger run, from Huckleberry Reservoir to the base area adja-

cent to the main day lodge via Round-up Traverse run, and from the base area adjacent to the main day lodge to the top of Whiskey Jack run. Finally, Castle Mountain Resort, alongside local residents, has invested in a project which will see ATCO install new natural gas infrastructure from Beaver Mines to Castle Mountain Resort, including 7.5 kilometers of upgraded gas line and 16.7 kilometers of new gas line. ATCO’s takeover/ conversion of Castle Mountain Resort’s existing propane distribution network will assist in lowering operational costs for the resort and lower utility costs for residents. Additionally, it will result in a reduction of 90 metric tons of greenhouse gases / year roughly equated to taking 20 passenger vehicles off the road. For more information

and to follow the construction blog, please visit About Castle Mountain Resort: Closer to Heaven, Down to Earth; Castle Mountain Resort is the second largest mountain resort, in Alberta, by acreage. Nestled in the southern Alberta Rockies, adjacent to the communities of Pincher Creek and the Crowsnest Pass, Castle Mountain Resort boasts 94+ runs across 3592 acres of terrain. Included in this is Castle’s Powder Stagecoach CatSkiing operation; one of the only resort-based catskiing operations in western Canada. Known for its abundant snowfall and short lift lines, Castle Mountain Resort remains one of the last affordable, down-to-earth, and authentic Rocky Mountain winter experiences.

Editorial and Opinions CanaDa PoSt, Do BEttEr! First off, I’d like to apologize to all my paid subscribers who live outside the Crowsnest Pass, not because I’m not doing my job, but because Canada Post isn’t doing theirs. Our paper is a paid circulation paper. Each week, we pay an average of $300 to $500 to mail our paper to people all over Alberta. It’s a huge expenditure. Other than the cost to print the paper, it’s our second largest expense. The reason we are a paid circulation is because we can actually track how many papers we are selling throughout Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and yes, even the United States. I can tell advertisers exactly how many people are reading my paper. On Thursday, my faithful subscriber of 60 years, 96 year-old Mr. Tarlarico showed up at the Pass Herald with his walker to ask my why he never receives his paper on time. Mr. Talarico, like all subscribers outside the area, who by the way pay extra for their paper than Crowsnest Pass locals, are not receiving it for upwards of three weeks. When he does get his paper, he receives three issues in a row. I’m not exaggerating when I say I get at least five to 10 calls a week with people not getting their papers, upset with me and the level of service Canada Post is providing. He was so upset he called our MLA Roger Reid only to realize that Canada Post is federal, so he called our MP John Barlow. I was next on his list. I can’t tell you how frustrated and mad this made me. Mr. Talarico loves his Pass Herald, he loves reading the paper each week, and Canada Post is wrecking this for him. So I had to explain how Canada Post work, or quite frankly doesn’t work. I want to be clear that this is not an issue with the local post office. They are doing their jobs. In fact, it is efficiently run and they do an incredible job. This is a Canada Post district issue. I could be wrong because when I call and complain, I get different answers every week but from what I understand, our residue papers are shipped first to Calgary, and then from Calgary, they have upwards of three days to then ship out to the outlaying post offices. Like I mentioned, they sometimes don’t even get their paper for upwards of three weeks. So I apologize to my readers from all over the country for the poor job that Canada Post is doing delivering my paper. I’m sorry they can’t use some common sense, and I’m sorry I’m paying upwards of $23,000 a year for subpar service. I wonder if things would be different if it was privatized. I encourage anyone to buy his or her paper digitally because the less money I have to give to Canada Post the better! LS

Dear Editor; On June 8, my friend Yvonne and myself took part in Darcy’s Walk. It is an extremely well run event which Yvonne and I have done 11 times. This year, however,

we were not paying attention and got terribly lost , we had no idea where we were and there were many, many piles of bear skat. Fortunately Yvonne had her I phone and was

We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to these very professional firefighters - Meghan, Mike, Darryl, and a young man who we don’t know. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sharon Groat

Pastors Pen

self-condemnation after one has repented of their sin (Romans 8:1). For one To forgive themselves, they must bring every condemning and condescending thought into captivity to Christ Jesus and begin to think scripturally about the death of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:2; 2 Corinthians 10:5). The only reason why God is justified to forgive sin is the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. Forgave you, so should you. The death of Jesus Christ for our sins was necessary. For we cannot secure the blessing of salvation by virtue of our

own righteousness. Either we receive the GIFT of salvation FREELY, or do without it. God's forgiveness is not hindered in the least for all who are in Christ Jesus (1 John 2:1,2). No matter how you feel, no matter what accusations you may wrestle with from within or from without, Jesus Christ will never condemn those He purchased with His blood (period). With that being said, Christians must approach Forgiving themselves sciptually, not emotionally. Knowing the fact that Jesus Christ is our Savior and friend, will keep us from over-reacting to

over-whelming thoughts of guilt. The world's answer to guilt, pressure and suffering is to look for someone to blame, develop a deep desire to escape, deny the problem, or fall into depression. These are not habits we can afford to live with. Outlandish odds will Press against you. No matter what is happening in your life, Christ is eager to forgive and restore. Know that there is certain entrance to a renewed fellowship with your heavenly Father. Your relationship to Christ makes forgiving yourself justifiable, achievable and beneficial. Pastor Billy Karasz

Dear Editor; One of the most difficult Christian's for God to influence is the one who will not forgive themselves. They are the ones who grieve God the most. They remain intimidated by a past experience and enslaved to the post-experience of guilt. More often than not, the infectious parasite of guilt has done its damage and has left the Christian feeling woefully hopeless. The Gospel of Jesus Christ demands that we beware of any enslaving thought that would provoke a continued indulgence of

Simply Selles by David Selles

As we continue to hear and see news stories about fires across the province as I write this, I think it’s a good time to simply talk about how appreciative we should be to firefighters. Every year without fail firefighters across the province begin their battles with large forest fires. Some are born from natural causes and some are made from stupid errors by people. I feel for the firefighters who have to spend day after day fighting a fire that was totally avoidable and without a doubt, every year, there are always a couple of them. But whether or not the cause is natural doesn’t take away all they do for the people of this province. There have been times when men and women fighting the blazes have been simply incredible in their push to contain fires. Sometimes the fires are too intense and shifts in wind limit what they can do but overall there are more times than not that these brave citizens save entire towns and cities. The willingness to do what these firefighters do is definitely something we should be thanking them for more than we currently do. These people spend weeks at a time away from their families and every time they leave it’s to put their own lives in danger to save strangers. What they do is truly amazing so the next time you see a firefighter, go thank them for all they do to keep us safe from the dangers of fires.

First Annual Walk for Alzheimers Herald Contributor

Bright sunshine and blue skies greeted the walkers at the 1st Annual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s event held Sunday, June 2 at the Vertical Church. Thirty-seven people walked one of two routes: either around the hospital, or down the hill and along the river to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. “It’s a great day for a great cause.” said Shari Remus, Regional Lead of Community Relations for the Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta and North West Territories. “We are walking today to bring awareness of Alzheimer disease and other dementias. Three out of four Canadians know someone with dementia, and it is estimated that over 40,000 Albertans are living with some form of the disease.” Shari added, “There is currently no cure for Alzheimer disease nor can its progress be reversed.” The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s event in Pincher Creek raised over $2,300.00 this year. Carol Budgen, representative for the IG Wealth Management, title sponsor for the Walk for Alzheimer’s event added, “It is important to give back to the community and I wanted the community to know that I represent a company that supports such a worthy cause. We have a growing senior population with six senior complexes serving the Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek communities with combined estimated population of 10,000. The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and North West Territories is such an important resource to help families throughout the SW affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias in our communities.” This event could not have been accomplished without the commitment of local volunteers, participants, committee members, and sponsors.

New Public Art on display DaviD SelleS Pass Herald Reporter

There’s a new art piece for the public to enjoy in the Crowsnest Pass. Thanks to a team of Lynette Jessop, Jodi MacFarlane, Kari Lehr, Karen Tamminga-Paton and Donna Bilyk, along with the Crowsnest Pass Public Art Gallery, residents and tourists can now visit Flight of the Corvids. The new art gallery includes a full wall mural and also has a series of crows on tall posts as well. One of the projects coordinators, Lynette Jessop, says this project was an important one to complete. “There is a very strong artist community in the Crowsnest Pass and a variety of different collectives so there were quite a few people that were talking about the need for Crowsnest Pass to have something to be proud of and to bring some public art into it.” Jessop also says they’ve been trying to complete a project like

this for a while. “We've been throwing around the idea for about four or five years of getting some public art here. For this actual project, the process wasn’t all easy, but the group is excited to see the final product come to fruition. “We've been working on getting a project together for a couple of years. We had a few hurdles to jump over and some obstacles though. We've gone from a couple of different locations and a couple different ideas and then we finally landed here. It's been three long years getting this together so we're very pleased to finally be able to present it to the public and we're hoping to give people an opportunity to view art without having to come into the art gallery. That's the whole purpose behind public art.” The location of the project is also something Jessop and the rest of the team are pleased with. “We are also glad that it's on the highway so we can catch visitors

coming by and give them a reason to stop.” Jessop says that they also have other ideas they hope to implement in the future. “We have lots of ideas. We do plan on working on continuing the mural around the building and we also have some conceptual ideas for working on other buildings around town, some underpasses, walls and fences as well. If you give artists an inch they'll see a mile so we have lots of ideas of where we'd like to head with this.” This project wouldn’t have been possible without the different sponsors as well. Jessop says she is very appreciative of all the sponsors have done. “Thanks to the sponsors for supporting the concept of bringing art in because this is a completely artist and sponsors art project so the involvement was people believing in our vision. I hope that the sponsors are also pleased with the results.”

A new public art piece was unveiled at the Crowsnest Pass Art Gallery on Sunday, June 9th. The project is titled Flight of the Corvids. The mural and art installation now give people a chance to view some of what the community has to offer with no restrictions.

Adirondack Chairs officially given to local businesses DaviD SelleS Pass Herald Reporter

The Friends of the Library’s collaboration with CCHS has come to a close. Over the past months, both shop and art class students spent time creating six Adirondack chairs that were sold to five different businesses in the Crowsnest Pass. The five businesses that purchased chairs were Copy Magic who purchased two chairs, one design was butterflies and flowers and the second was two hikers at Chinook Lake, the Pass Herald who received a design of the Burmis tree, Crockets, whose design was based

on the ski hill, Lost Lemon Campground, who received a trout based design, and Spring Break Flower Farm who received a design of a big horned sheep in front of Crowsnest Mountain. Ken and Linda Petrone, owners of Copy Magic, were very impressed with the looks of the chairs. “They’re very nice. We’ve got some talented kids in the area.” Overall, all participants thought the collaboration was a major success. Debbie Witten, Chair of the Friends of the Library Society, says she is very pleased with the chairs as well.

“They turned out to be so beautiful and each one represents something that's special about our community. You can't mistake that the designs are Crowsnest Pass when you're sitting on those chairs so it's great.” Witten also says the Friends of the Library would be open to another collaboration similar to this one in the future. “We would love to have another collaboration with the high school and the high school students. We were really happy with

the way this collaboration worked out and we'll debrief with the staff and administration and come up with some other new project that we could maybe work together on. It was chairs this time but it could be something else next time.” Art teacher Sherry Chanin says she was also pleased with how the students did during the painting process. “I'm extremely happy with how the final products look. It demands a lot from students in terms of

perseverance; and the learning curve on the painting was huge as well.” Residents and tourists

can now search for the chairs at the different businesses to see the work these students did up close.

This summer: get out of the way and let them play adopted because play is vital to the child’s social and emotional development. However, not all play is created equal. There are things we can do as parents to ensure that our children are getting the most out of their play time. According to the 2015 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, which is the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada, the biggest thing we can do is “get out of the way and let them play.” Literally, move away, don’t interfere. The best type of play is that

Alberta Health Sevvices

Letting our kids play, outdoors - with risks - actually helps them be more safe and healthy in the long run. It seems counter-intuitive that protecting our children can actually cause them more harm than good, but let me explain. There’s an ever growing body of research and messaging around children’s right to play. Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that the child has a right to leisure, play, and participation in cultural and artistic activities. This has been

which is self-directed, involves risks, and is in nature. The report card’s position statement is clear on this: “Access to active play in nature and outdoors—with its risks—is essential for healthy child development. We recommend increasing children’s opportunities for self-directed play outdoors in all settings—at home, at school, in child care, the community and nature.” So, what makes this type of play more valuable? First, we must remember that play is how children learn. It is through play that chil-


NOTE: RE-SCHEDULED PUBLIC HEARING DATE AND TIME 8:00 PM Tuesday, Jun 25, 2019 Municipality of Crowsnest Pass Council Chambers PURSUANT to sections 230, 606, and 692 of the Municipal Government Act, Revised Statutes of Alberta 2000, Chapter M-26, the Council of the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass in the Province of Alberta hereby gives notice of its intention to consider proposed Bylaw No. 1029, 2019 being a bylaw to amend Bylaw No. 868-2013, being the municipal land use bylaw. The purpose of Bylaw No. 1029, 2019 is to amend the Land Use Bylaw for the purposes of amending the Schedule 4, Part 46 Cannabis Retail Sales to remove separation distances between Retail Cannabis Stores, Liquor Stores and Public Parks.

dren learn everything valuable they will need later in life. They learn to empathize with their peers, to problem solve, to make decisions, to selfregulate, to express their creativity, to socialize, to trust their intuition, etc. Many of the skills we use as adults today to create relationships, to advance careers, and to be great parents were all learned through our play experiences as children. However, if adults are constantly interfering with their children’s play experiences, even with the best of intentions, then these skills aren’t learned. I know that as parents, when we interfere we are coming from a place of protection because we want our kids to be safe, healthy and happy. Yet, in doing so, we are actually causing the opposite effect. This is called the protection paradox. When we overprotect our kids to keep them safe, by keeping them close, indoors, saying “be careful” a hundred times, not letting them climb the tree, choosing who they play with and how they play, not letting them go to the playground on their own, etc. we are actually setting them up to be less resilient and (here’s the kicker) more likely to develop chronic diseases in the long run. Let’s take the idea of letting your child climb a tree. When a child climbs a tree without an adult

around, they are using their bodies in ways that push the limits of their physical skills. This is important because not only is it helping them to improve their physical health, but it’s also teaching them what they are capable of. While climbing the tree, they have to make a whole bunch of decisions about where to put their hands and feet, which branch is safe and which one is not. They are practicing the problem solving and decision making skills they will use later in life. They also need to keep in mind how they will get back down and only go as high as they feel safe. They are listening to their inner voice that lets them know when a situation is safe or not; an important skill that will support them in making smart decisions throughout their lives. They might also get into a spot where they start to get worried or a tiny bit scared because they aren’t feeling quite as safe. However, in order to get back down the tree, they will have to know how to calm themselves down and focus. They are learning to self-regulate, which will help them in their relationships throughout life. Then, once they finally get back down the tree, having dealt with all of these small decisions all on their own, they feel that

sense of accomplishment and an inner knowing that they are capable of figuring things out. What an important understanding! Now, if you as a parent stood there and told them to “be careful” and “watch out” and “don’t go too high,” you’d be taking away this valuable lesson from them. This folks, is just one example of all the lessons that can be learned through play that will keep them safe and healthy in the long run. As the report card states “we need to consider the possibility that rules and regulations designed to prevent injuries and reduce perceived liability consequences have become excessive, to the extent that they actually limit rather than promote children’s physical activity and health. Adults need to get out of the way and let kids play.” So, this summer, I urge you to think about the long-term health benefits of letting your kids play without interference, outdoors, and in nature. Step away, let them play on their own and if you have to be there maybe try to take the words “be careful” out of your vocabulary and say “focus,” “pay attention,” “problem solve” instead.

Looking Back By John Kinnear

A Long Journey to Happiness: Marietta Mancini’s Story So while I find it fascinating to go deeper into the family histories of our remarkable municipality it seems so do others. These days the vast array of resources available to curious family members can take them deep into their personal roots. So it was for Jillian Uloth, the great granddaughter of Marietta Mancine, who has done just that. Jillian, who is from Prince George, shared her research with the Crowsnest Heritage Initiative’s quarterly e-newsletter this June. The Initiative’s e-newsletter is available to all on line at their site and is published four times a year with heritage news, event notices and feature stories. (www.crowsnest There are now 55 issues out there that make for some fascinating reading. They and Jillian have graciously consented to me sharing this story along with some of my inevitable side comments just to give more perspective. So welcome to the family history of the Mancini family from Blairmore. Jillian opens with: “Marietta Maria Mancini was born on March 9, 1902 in Glasgow, Scotland and was the first child and only daughter of Pietro and Filomena Mancini. Her father Pietro (Peter) had been orphaned at the young age of ten, back in the tiny town of Pastena, Italy and was left to fend for himself, often finding shelter in local barns at night. At the age of seventeen, it is said that he was befriended by a Scottish professor who decided to hire him as a valet on a voyage back to Scotland, which is how he ended up in Glasgow. Marietta’s mother Filomena was born in Glasgow in 1883 to Italian parents with the surname of Gizzi and grew up in a tenement slum in the Cowcaddens neighborhood of that city. After Marietta was born, her parents expanded their little family once more with the birth of Albert (Bob), and by 1907 had made the decision to pick up and move the family to Canada. They travelled on the steamship S.S. Athenia, docking in New Brunswick before making their way west to Blairmore.” Sidenote: The S.S. Athenia that they travelled on went into service in 1903 and typically ran from Glasgow to St. John. N.B. or Montreal. It was sunk in 1917 by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland with the loss of 15 men and 440 horses. A second Athenia was launched in 1922 and saw passenger service until it was also sunk by a German submarine in 1939, in almost the same area of offshore Ireland, with the loss of 117 civilians including 28 US citizens. It was the first UK ship to be sunk by Germany during World War ll and the act was condemned as a war crime. Jillian continues: “Blairmore was probably chosen due to a contact of some kind through the town’s large Italian community, and Peter was able to gain employment as a miner. The Mancinis moved into a centrally located home on Victoria Street with a brick foundation, basement and large garden on seven lots. The family continued to grow as four more boys were born in quick succession – Ralph, Rocco (Vic), Vincent (Vince), and Tony. During this time, the children who were of age attended school and Vince recalled that their home was not far from the Old Man River where the children would enjoy donning ‘gunny sacks’ to swim in during spells of warm weather. Despite a seemingly idyllic sounding setting, their father Peter had a cold demeanor and was physically abusive. Son Vince recalled when he and the other Mancini children would hear their father’s boots crunching on the cobble stones leading up to the house as he walked home from work at night and they would run and hide to avoid being beaten. When their beloved mother Filomena passed away three days after giving birth to another baby boy in 1917, life for the Mancini children was about to get even more challenging. Mrs. Holloway was a local nurse who had attended the birth of the children’s new baby brother in the Mancini home. After Filomena’s death, Mrs. Holloway decided to adopt the motherless baby and named him Walter Holloway.” Sidenote: Mrs Holloway lived on the Blossomwood Ranch just north of Frank and in 1920 was confronted by a wounded and fleeing Bassoff after the Bellevue Café shootout. She bathed and bandaged the wound and then suggested he leave as her husband would soon be home, after which she contacted the police but Bassoff disappeared before they could nab him. Jillian goes on to say: “Marietta, still only a child herself, was left to look after her five little brothers on her own, with the youngest being only four years old. The following winter of 1917/18 must have been horrible for the grief-stricken Mancini children as they coped with the loss of their mother and ill-treatment by their father. The enormous weight of responsibility placed on Marietta’s young shoulders while still attempting to attend school must have left deep, emotional scars; as an adult, she was never willing to discuss this period of her life. By the next year, formal complaints had been made that the children were not being properly cared for by Mr. Mancini and he was “charged with neglect, or ill-treatment or non-support of his children.” The Mancini youngsters were removed from their home by the Department of Dependent and Delinquent Children and separated into various housing. The Mancini home was temporarily “held as bond surety for the patrol of Mancini’s pending trial. A short time afterwards, Mancini appeared for hearing and was later let out on his own recognizance.” At this point, Peter placed an ad in the Blairmore Enterprise offering his home for sale and asking for immediate settlement by accepting only cash offers. He had then made the decision to leave Blairmore, after supposedly promising Marietta that he would travel back to Italy to bring home a new mother for his children. In May 1919 while back in Pastena, Peter married Josephine Sarracino, a local young woman. Returning home to Blairmore with his new wife that September, the couple stayed for about two months, renting a room at a local hotel. By this time, Marietta was old enough to be assigned as a domestic for a nearby family and was sent away to work for her room and board. While she had not been treated kindly during this time, she refused to agree to her father’s proposed arrangement to live as a family with his new bride. After receiving payment from the sale of the house, Peter and Josephine quietly left town in the middle of the night and illegally fled over the border to Portal, North Dakota, leaving nothing to his children. Having been taken into care, Marietta’s younger brothers had not fared much better than she had. The Child Protection Act had been officially sanctioned in Alberta by 1909 and was essentially meant to be a social safety net for the legal protection of neglected and abandoned children. As wards of the province, children were often boarded in orphanages or sent to so-called ‘baby farms’ to be nurtured in a family setting. Vince later remembered he was sent to an orphanage with his brother Vic and they were treated terribly. He recalled the “Nuns ate steak while the children had only porridge to eat.” During summers, the orphanage shipped them out to work as farm hands, often sleeping in barns and treated cruelly by one particular farm wife. These foster homes were paid “$3.00 per week, per child if necessary; in some the children’s services were provided in lieu of payment. Some foster parents abused the system, using the children as cheap labor.” When a bill was received by the town of Blairmore from the Department of Dependent and Delinquent Children in 1920 for the maintenance of the Mancini children, the town denied responsibility and refused to settle up. By 1922, the state became more aggressive in its approach and the office of the Department of Attorney General was “demanding immediate settlement of the sum of $3932.85, claimed as due under the Mother’s Allowance Act and the Children’s Protection Act in connection chiefly with the children of one Pete Photos Top to bottom: Mancini.” Lots more to this story so be sure to tune in next week when Jillian’s research brings the Mancini Pietro, Marietta and Filomena in Glasgow, 1902; Filomena family through its early travails into the later years. She reveals how Marietta, Albert (Bob),Ralph, Mancini as a young woma; Blossomwood Dairy run by the Kotas Rocco (Vic), Vincent (Vince),Tony and adopted brother Walter all went on to make good lives for them- in the early days; Marietta as a young woman photos one, two and four credit to Jillian Uloth; picture three credit to selves despite their painful beginnings. Authors Note: The Crowsnest River was often referred to as the Oldman River in the early days.

York Creek residents update New slogan ‘Help us Drive our Seniors’ Herald Contributor

The York Creek Residents Association (YCRA) was very pleased to be designated a Registered Charity by Canada Revenue Agency in 2018. This means our organization can issue tax-deductible receipts for donations over $25.00. We have also been granted a casino license. The YCRA AGM was held in March 2019. Edward Gray was elected President and we have a very involved 10 – person volunteer board of directors. The Board of Director’s major focus is engaging in fundraising events that will help purchase a newer, larger bus for the residents. The current bus can only accommodate 14 passengers, including 2 wheelchairs. It was purchased used, is now more than 10 years old and is rapidly deteriorating. We have a goal of $150,000.00 and are currently determining specifications and canvassing dealerships. We are approaching all possible sectors such as Federal and Provincial Governments, businesses, other organizations and individuals for grants and donations. Transportation is especially important for the elderly population because it gives them a sense of belonging; that they are still part of the community. The Crowsnest Pass is where most of the residents have lived all their lives. Being able to attend local functions and go on outings to shop or enjoy picnics helps to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. A newer bus will be especially important when the residents move to the new location in Coleman. The YCRA Board would like to thank Pass Beverages for choosing the YCRA to receive the proceeds of the bottle drive last June. We are very grateful for the cash donations that individuals have made and especially appreciate the donation-inkind from Bob McKenzie-Grieve in placing the slogan ‘Help Us Drive Our Seniors’ on the bus. The Blairmore Lions Club has donated $5000, for which we are very thankful. Donations can be sent to York Creek Residents Association, PO Box 1050, Blairmore AB T0K 0E0, or you could also donate through the Crowsnest Pass Senior Housing website ( The YCRA is looking for help with its fundraising efforts, so if you can contribute ideas and/or time, please contact us.

RANDY RICHARD FIELD ~ October 14, 1960 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 1, 2019~

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Randy Field on June 1, 2019 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. He was 58 years of age. Randy was born in London, ON on October 14, 1960 to parents, George and Jean Field. Throughout his life he was a very active individual who especially liked running and walking his dog. While living in Ontario, Randy took up show jumping - a sport that combined his love of both physical activity and horses. He enjoyed a successful show jumping career that took him as far as Texas. In June of 2001, Randy moved to the Crowsnest Pass, AB where he immediately became a productive member of the community. He volunteered as often as he could, and was a devoted friend to many. Randy was a kind, compassionate man who will be deeply missed and warmly remembered. Left to celebrate his life and mourn his passing is his best friend, Rejean Levesque of Coleman, AB; his daughters, Stephanie and Jennifer; two grandsons; his brothers, Wayne, Rob and Gordon; and his sisters, Linda, Debbie and Karen. He was predeceased by his parents, George F. & Jean Field and his brother, Terry Field of Texada Island, BC. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass S.P.C.A. (PO Box 725, Blairmore, A T0K 0E0).
