WOMEN GROWING TOGETHER
An intercultural and intergenerational project for Newcomers and Friends Please join us!

Cultural diversity is a strength when we take time to learn from one another in mutually respectful ways. In Beverly there are newcomers from Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia and Central America among many other countries. Women Growing Together (WGT) provides an opportunity for newcomer women and “mainstream” Canadians to broaden their community connections, develop friendships, and build bridges across cultures. Flexibility, curiosity, reci-
procity, learning and having fun are key ingredients. Both newcomers and “mainstream” Canadian women of all ages are welcome to join this intercultural and intergenerational project. We will share our ideas and talents and explore activities together that are identified by the group. We share stories, cook together and make crafts. Other activities could include exercise, fieldtrips, guest speakers, gardening, sewing and knitting. The Beverly Towne Community Development Society obtained a grant from

Abundant Community Edmonton is a grassroots initiative fostering neighbour to neighbour relationships. The goal – to cultivate a culture of care and connection, increased sense of belonging and inclusion, and ultimately create a more healthy and livable city – one block at a time.
Community League News The Beacon Heights Community League would like to acknowledge the land on which we are located is Treaty 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous peoples. The territory on which the Beacon Heights Community League is located and operates has provided a travelling route and home to the Cree, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Metis and other Indigenous peoples.
Meet the Board Our Annual General Meeting took place on April 23rd and our Board of Directors for the 2019/2020 year was elected. We wish to acknowledge two outgoing Board members, Pat Moffitt and Colleen McCullough, for their contributions to our community over the past several years. The board and the community league would like to thank Colleen McCullough for her tireless efforts in organizing and running the very successful silent auction that took place at our AGM. Our current Board members are: President - Chase Yaremchuk, Vice-President - Amanda Harriman-Gojtan, Treasurer - Michelle Ewanuk, Secretary - Alicia Robinson, Baseball Director -Mike Neary, Programs Director - Theresa Yaremchuk, Seniors’ Director - Pat Sharun, Civics Director - Roy Vollema, and BBA Rep - Crystal Vercholuk.
We are pleased to introduce Jessica Rutten as our new Neighbourhood Connector. Jessica is looking for the jewels of the community, the people who can connect with their neighbours on each block. Everyone is valuable and has something to offer neighbourhood life. The discovery of the skills, abilities and experiences of neighbours – the community assets - leads to a more engaged, connected, and supportive community life in the neighbourhood. If you are interested in getting to know your neighbours, facilitating conversations, and/or hosting block socials, please contact Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org Green Shack and Concession are Back The Green Shack program will start July 02 and run until August 21.

Men’s Shed at Beacon Heights The Men’s Sheds Association of Edmonton is now a non-profit society and has its roots buried deep in Beacon Heights. The first shed in Edmonton was founded here and continues to run a weekly program at the Jubilee Park rink building. The men of this group have had paint nights, led by another Shedder and built the community league an actual storage shed that the league uses to store their maintenance equipment. There is no cost to join the group and everyone is welcome. New projects and ideas are brought up at every weekly meeting.
Community Coffee and Urban Poling
Beacon Heights Community League hosts a variety of weekly programing and two of those programs are the well known Community Coffee, which is hosted by Theresa Yaremchuk, in the social room of the Jubilee Rink. Every Tuesday morning baked goodies and fresh coffee that is free is offered to those that come out and have a chat. The other program is the urban poling. With the use of poles, a group of people meet up at the rink every Tuesday night at 6 p.m. for a guided walk by a certified instructor. It’s a lot of fun and many new people to meet. Community League Day Beacon Heights will be hosting Community League Day on September 7th at the Jubilee Park. More details will be provided on our website and our Facebook page as the date gets closer. Hot Dog Fundraiser We will be hosting a hot dog fundraiser on July 20th at Jubilee Park.

Lifetime Member and Volunteer Appreciation Night! On April 26 Beverly Heights Community League hosted a volunteer appreciation night at our community hall. It was a wonderful evening where volunteers from the community enjoyed a delicious meal while sharing stories with friends new and old. It was awakening to witness the relationships that have developed over a lifetime of volunteering in our community and inspiring to see how the efforts of a few can make real change. Beverly is so lucky to have the commitment individuals who have dedicated their time, skills and friendships to our community for over 50 years! A powerful sentiment to newer members of Beverly of the positive impact volunteering has not only for the community, but for oneself. It was a testimonial to Ghandi’s “Be the change you want to see inthe world”. Lifetime Members are those who have made significant contributions to thecommunity over the years; with a minimum of 10 years of active volunteer service as well as being community league members for a least 15 years.

Each year, we honour those in our community who have made an outstanding contribution.
Our Volunteers of the Year are:
Clara MacMillan, who has volunteered for BASS for over 20 years, and done everything from ordering supplies, managing bingo & whist, cooking & serving food, plus volunteering for the Variety Show. Leander Britz, who has volunteered each and every night for the Variety Show for a number of years, and this year also replaced every light fixture in the hall with energyefficient LED lights. Jorja Grist, who has volunteered at almost
every social event we have hosted in the past few years. She has also been an active member of the Variety Show clean-up committee (even though she’s not old enough to watch the show yet!) We honoured Kathy Morrison, who has been an active member of ourcommunity and our board for almost 40 years. Our community has extraordinary volunteers; some have been volunteering since we became a community league in 1965, as well as teens who are learning the value and the satisfaction of giving back to their community. Thank you to all of our volunteers, who make our community such a wonderful place to live.
Clara MacMillan,Volunteer of the year. Tracey Hirtle, past Beverly Heights Community League Vice President. The Beverly community sincerely thanks Tracey for her years of volunteering to our community. Tracey’s dedication has had a tremendous impact on our community.

Beverly Community News, Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 9
The Beverly Heights Variety Show is Turning 50! It started as a simple idea by a group of then young Beverly Heights community members who decided to produce a local, amateur variety show to help raise funds for the community. That was 49 years ago and “Once Upon A Time, Stories Your Mother Never Told You” was created and performed over four nights in mid-March. The Variety Show been running every year since, proving to be the longest running, communitybased variety show in the city of Edmonton! When the show begins its run in February 2020, it will celebrate its fiftieth year! Incredibly it would never have happened without the tremendous efforts of numerous, untold volunteers. Over the years it has attracted a cast and crew from all walks of life and has attained an almost cult-like following of fans and volunteers. According to Judy Jacobs, who along with her husband Lawrence, were original contributors, the community was full of young families who bonded together to have a few laughs. “No one went to Hawaii in the winter like people do now”, she says, “So what else was there for us to do in the winter?” From the start, the show proved to be a winner, attracting fans that would stand in line in the February cold before someone had the great idea of selling tickets with reserved seating. Sharing a potluck dinner with friends at the Beverly Heights hall before the show is one feature that continues today. Don’t be surprised to see crock pots mixed in with pizza boxes! But it’s the show, with a live band, that is the crown jewel! Known for its somewhat salty, adult based humour, the show has sustained a following over the years and has contributed tremendously to supporting the community initiatives, including the recently renovated hall. As such, expectations for the Fiftieth Anniversary show are high! The volunteers who comprise the organizing committee for the 2020 Beverly Heights Variety Show are looking for writer/directors who would like to contribute to this historical performance. Fans have suggested the show needs to acknowledge some of the history, while bringing a
fresh approach that will attract audiences young and old for the next fifty years. What do you think? Are you creative and have a sense of humour? Are you willing to work with a group of dedicated, goofy people to put on the best show Beverly Heights has ever seen? If so, give Chris Keeler a call at 780 293-6674 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org The Beverly Heights Variety Show committee requests that all script submissions be submitted by September 5, 2019. Follow us on the Beverly Heights Variety Show Facebook page and try the upcoming trivia contest to win free tickets to the Fiftieth show.

New summer programmer at Abbotsfield Library Hello Everyone! My name is Taylor Latimer and I am the new summer programmer for the Abbottsfield Branch. I am a first year education student studying at the University of Saskatchewan and I’m very excited to be a part of the Beverly community this summer.
What does the Summer Programmer do?
As a summer programmer it is my job to provide fun activities and storytimes to all the wonderful children in the community. I am also very lucky to have the opportunity to do outreach visits to daycares, out of school cares and summer camps. I love science and technology so I can’t wait to deliver some exciting and unique STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) programming that kids of all ages can enjoy. I also run some in-branch classes such as Sing, Sign, Laugh and Learn where you can bring your little ones for a fun-filled time! If you see me in-branch or out in the community make sure to say hello! Get Involved with Summer Starts at EPL! Summer Starts at EPL is a fun program that encourages children to read, create and explore all summer long! This year’s theme is the Natural World. When participants sign up they will get their own reading log and activ-
ity booklet. As they read and complete activities they will be entered in our ballot draw to win some amazing prizes.

Massage – does it really work? By BEV BETKOWSKI They feel great, but do massages really work? The answer isn’t black and white, says a massage therapist at the University of Alberta. “The problem is it can be subjective and difficult to measure,” said Deborah McIntyre, a member of the massage therapy team based at the Glen Sather Sports Medicine Clinic. Massage has a mix of benefits for both mind and body, depending on the varying needs of the client, she says. “It’s specific to what the situation and problem is. It could be massage for a musculoskeletal condition, pain relief, relaxation therapy; the question is, have we fulfilled the client’s request for a treatment to address their concerns?” The key to that, McIntyre added, lies in connecting with four of the body’s major physiological systems during massage therapy and “trying to manipulate the soft tissue to obtain the favourable results the client desires.” The first is the neuromuscular system, which includes all the muscles in the body and the nerves serving them. In this capacity, massage can treat muscles that are either in spasm (too short and tight) or flaccid (too stretched and weak), McIntyre said. The second part of the body to benefit from a good massage treatment is connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, cartilage and scar tissue. “A massage can increase range of motion in a joint or smooth and realign disorganized scar tissue,” explains McIntyre. The circulatory system also benefits from massage by increasing blood flow to the tissues, which aids in delivering oxygen and getting rid of metabolic waste to promote healing. Used with caution, massage can also help lymphatic drainage for mastectomy patients and stimulate better breathing for people with limited lung capacity or other respiratory conditions. It also improves circulation of cerebral spinal fluid, which could hold potential for treating concussions, McIntyre believes. Massage also helps the autonomic nervous system, which regulates sympathetic responses in the body like heart rate and arousal. “A massage helps people come down from heightened stress and anxiety,” explains McIntyre.
She added the benefits of massage also linger after the appointment is done. “The physiological experience definitely has a lasting effect. Massages can’t solve everything, but they can be very successful when used appropriately.” More research into measuring the effects of massage on the body’s four physiologic systems will further help pinpoint its benefits, she adds. Some studies have shown it also holds potential for people with dementia and Parkinson’s disease, she notes, because soft massage can decrease aggressiveness and anxiety. “We can gain some insight by working with other disciplines in medicine and science such as physiotherapy, sports medicine and chemistry. They have the ability to measure the different molecular structures within blood and tissues, and then we can see if we’re making a difference as massage therapists.” Relaxation versus deep tissue massage Whether for pure pleasure or to treat pain, there are massage techniques for both. But deep tissue massages should only be given as part of a plan to treat a specific injury, McIntyre said. “(When) you’re dealing with a problem, there should never be a deep tissue massage without an assessment first. Otherwise the body may not need it and you may damage the tissue. No one wants to feel like they’ve been hit by a truck after a treatment.” The massage therapist should assess the patient, get their consent and then develop a plan that could also recommend hydrotherapy and other treatments.
“A skilled massage therapist will have many tools to get favourable results without causing further damage.” Relaxation massages are good for treating minor aches and reducing anxiety, McIntyre says. “It’s a softer touch, and you’re trying to provide a feeling of wellbeing as the patient starts to relax.” However, massage treatment may not be appropriate for people with certain conditions that could
require first aid or medical attention due to strokes, diabetic comas, systemic infections, high fevers, or uncontrolled high blood pressure and bleeding. “A trained therapist will be able to accommodate many other medical conditions and medications and is expected to know when and how to consult with doctors and other health-care professionals,” McIntyre notes. What to expect from a massage therapist • A pre-massage assessment for a client’s injury or condition. A proper case history should be taken, including past and current medical history and a list of prescription medication. • Development of a treatment plan with the client’s informed consent. A massage therapist should have a good referral base to other medical professionals. • A variety of massage techniques to provide relief. • For a relaxation massage, clients should be asked about any medications they’re taking and any other contraindications.

GARDENING HANGING BASKET CARE Hanging baskets are a gardening trend that has stood the test of time and passed with flying colours – literally! Often filled with the biggest and brightest flowering annuals, hanging baskets add a delightful element to our gardens like nothing else can. Naturally we want to keep that element around for as long as possible. Luckily, with some simple hanging basket care, you can keep yours looking fresh all summer long.
Best Flowering Plants for Hanging Baskets While almost any plant can be dressed up in a container and look just fine, there’s a select few that really rock the hanging basket look. Since these suspended beauties are likely hanging above eye level, plants with short or strictly upright habits don’t fill the basket out very well. Bushy or trailing plants tend to suit the part with their gorgeous blooms elegantly draping over the edge. These are the best flowering plants for hanging baskets.
PETUNIAS – One of the most popular container garden flowers, petunias are abundant bloomers of wide, trumpet shaped flowers. These summer bloomers can bring almost any colour to your garden, as well as a variety of patterns and petal shapes. Trailing petunias are particularly great for hanging baskets. GERANIUMS – Known not just for their vibrant flowers and ruffled petals, geraniums are also popular for filling your garden with their floral fragrance. For something that really pops, go with high contrast geraniums with stunning edging, like Imperial of Mexicana. Plus if you over winter them indoors you can treat them like tender perennials! IMPATIENS – Impatiens are perfect for your shaded hanging baskets, brightening the dimmest corners of your garden with their bright, colourful blooms. They require even less work than other annuals since they selfclean their spent buds and re-bloom ass on their own.

VERBENA – Verbenas display clusters of tiny blooms, normally in shades of purple or white, which bring a subtle beauty to your hanging baskets. Don’t be fooled by their dainty flowers, these heat loving plants thrive in the hottest, driest part of your garden giving you reliable colour all summer long.
Watering hanging baskets Watering is the most important part of caring for your hanging baskets and also the most challenging. The showy plants best suited for hanging containers usually require evenly moist soil and won’t do well if you let them dry out. But they also don’t like wet feet either, so overwatering isn’t a good idea. To maintain that happy medium follow these simple tips. • Make sure your hanging basket is equipped with adequate drainage holes. This prevents the pooling of water at the bottom of the container which will ultimately rot your plants’ roots.

BEGONIA – Begonias are popular for their pretty blooms and attractive, coloured foliage. These vigorous growers leave your hanging basket brimming with blooms as they flow over the edges with vibrant tendrils of colour.

• It’s important to adjust your watering schedule based on the needs of your plants. Include plants with similar needs in the same pot and pay attention to seasonal changes. In the spring, when the weather is cool, most hanging baskets can go 3 -4 days without needing water. Once we start experiencing the dry heat of summer your flowers will need extra hydration. With water retention so low at this time they might need to be watered daily to stay healthy. • Even if you have an established watering schedule always check the soil before watering anyways. Don’t assume the rain is going to do your job for you either. For dense containers, water tends to fall on the plant rather than into the soil. The easiest way to test the soil is to stick your finger in and see for yourself. If it’s dry all the way to your first knuckle, go ahead and take out the watering can.

GARDENING • When you do water, water thoroughly. You want to see water flowing freely from the drainage holes, drenching the soil and washing out any buildup of salts.
the side leaving the top of your basket bare. Don’t worry; all it takes is some strategic snipping to get your flower basket back to its rounded, bushy self.
Fertilizing hanging baskets
Using small, sharp pruning shears selectively prune some of the flowers that are leaning to the side. Cut back about a third of the plant – enough to encourage new growth and keep the basket attractive. Cutting from the side will redirect growth to the centre of the plant to revert it to its original shape. It’s normal to feel hesitant about cutting away perfectly fine blooms, but it’s well worth it to keep the basket in tip-top shape and they’ll return again in no time! During your pruning process make sure to
In containers plants don’t have the opportunity to spread roots in search of water and nutrients like they do in the ground. In an enclosed environment like this it’s important to provide them with adequate nutrients. Fertilization is important for giving your flowering friend the energy they need to fuel their profuse blooms and vibrant colours. Add a slow release fertilizer to your hanging baskets when you first plant them because new plants are always heavy feeders. This small but steady amount provides your basket with a consistent amount of fertilizer. Once summer arrives you can start adding in a balanced, water soluble fertilizer every week or two. The additional nutrients help to keep them going and makes up for their avid growth and blooms during the growing season.
deadhead any spent blooms too. Most flowering annuals won’t drop fading flowers on their own. If you don’t snip them off yourself the plant carries on as if the growing season is over and won’t put any energy into producing more flowers. After deadheading, your plant will come back with more beautiful buds for a continuous bloom all season long. Hanging baskets are an awesome way to showcase some of your favourite flowers this year. They enhance areas of your landscape that would otherwise be left barren and colourless. With some simple maintenance and strategic trimming you can keep your hanging baskets blooming and beautiful for the entire season.

You may have heard the expression: “It takes a village to raise a child.” The “village” that surrounds our young children makes a HUGE difference to the kinds of opportunities and resources available during the first years of their life. The Early Childhood Coalitions of Alberta seek to help build and support children’s “villages” Their focus is on helping us, as a community, to do the best job of providing our young children with what they need to thrive. Did you know that there are seven (7) Early Years Coalitions in Edmonton, and just short of 100 Coalitions across Alberta? We would like to introduce you to the NE Edmonton Early Childhood Development Coalition. Most young children living in NE Edmonton are doing well. However, research (using the Early Development Instrument) has shown that nearly one third (1/3) face challenges that leave them vulnerable in one or more developmental areas. These challenges can range from not having the food and proper clothing to prepare them for a day of learning to not having the opportunities to practice important skills. This can result in delays in their development or make it difficult for them to engage fully in the learning environment of a Kindergarten class. We are a group of people who want to change this. So, what are we doing to build
the capacity of our communities to support young children’s development and reduce the percentage of children who are vulnerable? First, we share knowledge and information. Second, we bring people together. We believe that the more informed and connected that people are, the more we can be a resource to each other -and the stronger the “village” will become. Want to know more? Follow us on Facebook for information about things that are going on the community (events, workshops, etc.), tips for things to do with children, Coalition news and updates, and a whole lot more! The link is www.facebook.com/neearlyyears. For more information about the Coalitions in Edmonton, including a map of their areas and contact information, go to the website: www.earlychildhoodedm.ca. If you are interested in becoming involved with the NE ECD Coalition, or just have questions, you can e-mail our Coalition Assistant Marketa at firstname.lastname@example.org. -Amanda Gibson (Chair) •••

until 2010. In 2011 she started taking short courses at NAIT to refine her baking skills and in 2014 started the Corner Bake Shoppe at the Super Flea Market which she operated until 2018.. During this time Reme and her two partners began looking for a spot to open up their bake shop. While searching on the internet she discovered the web site for the Beverly Towne Farmers’ Market. After that a quick search found an empty space in the building at 3914 – 118 Avenue, right across the street from the Market, and they began renovations immediately.
This is not your typical Canadian bakeshop. There are no loaves of bread, doughnuts or other typical sweets that you would find in any other bakery. Galen on 118 serves up traditional Filipino baked goods such as purple yam buns, coconut buns, blueberry buns and others. This is the home of some of the best cinnamon buns you will ever find but you need to go early as they sell out quickly. There are also warm dishes like butter chicken, BBQ pork and Chilean beef empanadas, BBQ pork buns, ham and cheese buns, and pepperoni, hot dogs and smokies wrapped in a soft, delicious pastry. The shop has been completed renovated and is warm and inviting with tables to sit at or you can take your food to go. There is a small selection of cold drinks also available. Galen on 118 is open Monday through Saturday from 9.30 a.m. – 5.30 p.m. You can also check them out on Facebook. •••

Potential Gold Bar Wastewater Sewage Expansion Raises Concerns For over the past 100 years, Edmonton has been slowly removing industry from its Ribbon of Green, the River Valley. In 2017, a management

decided, without informing or consulting the public, to bring a large sewer trunk line (the South Edmonton Sanitary Sewer, or SESS) through urban residential areas and parkland with the intention of processing more sewage at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. The decision was contrary to the long-established plan to expand wastewater treatment to the Alberta Capital Region Wastewater plant in Strathcona county. The decision to reroute the SESS was made without any public consultation and in apparent disregard for the concerns of citizens about increased sewage processing in the heart of Gold Bar Park. It also coincided with a recent transfer of drainage operations from the City of Edmonton to EPCOR and appeared to be self-serving. The Capital Region plant is located on industrial lands, away from residents and with room to expand. The footprint of the Goldbar plant is adjacent to Goldbar and Capilano homes and doesn’t meet the current industrial setback guidelines. Residents on both sides of the river, who are already unhappy with the unsightliness and smell from the plant, do not see the wisdom of expanding the Goldbar
plant when a perfectly viable alternative is available. A diverse group of Edmontonians consisting of area residents, community leagues, park users and river valley conservationists raised the alarm. They organized into a group called the Save Gold Bar Park Alliance (SGBPA) and presented their concerns to the City of Edmonton Utility Council on November 16, 2018. Gold Bar, Highlands, Capilano and Rundle Heights/Beverly Heights community leagues have all signed a memorandum rejecting the decision to bring the SESS into Gold Bar Park. On Sept 30, 2019, city councilors will meet to discuss whether public consultation and engagement should be held regarding the decision to bring the SESS to Gold Bar. What can you do to help? Contact your community league presidents, city councilors; and local MLAs to share your concerns and request thorough public engagement on this important decision.

Exercise and aging: How to work out safely after 50 In an ideal world, people young and old exercise each day. But as men and women age, finding time to work out is not so easy. Commitments to work and family often take precedence over daily exercise. As a result, many people 50 and over might not have exercised regularly or at all in many years. But as children grow up or even move out, people facing down their golden years are often compelled to get back in the gym. That’s a wise decision that can increase a person’s chances of being healthy and happy in retirement. But before beginning a new exercise regimen, men and women over 50 should take heed of the following safety tips to ensure their efforts are not derailed by accident or injury. • Speak with your physician. The National Institute on Aging notes that even people with chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or arthritis can be physically active. However, anyone with such a condition and even those who don’t fall into those categories should consult with their physicians and receive a full physical before exercising. Such a consultation and checkup can shed light on any unknown issues, and physicians can offer advice on how to safely manage any problems that may arise. • Begin with low-intensity exercises. Even if you feel great and have maintained a healthy weight, don’t push yourself too hard at the start. Your body needs time to adjust to physical activity, so choose lowintensity exercises like walking and light strength training so your muscles, tendons and ligaments can adjust. Initially, exercise every other day so your body has ample time to recover between workouts. • Choose the right places to exercise outdoors. Exercising outside provides the best of both worlds for many people, providing a chance to get healthy all while enjoying the
People facing down their golden years are often compelled to get back in the gym. That’s a wise decision that can increase a person’s chances of being healthy and happy in retirement. great outdoors. When exercising outdoors, choose areas that are not remote and where others can see you and offer help if you suffer an injury or have an accident. Boardwalks, public parks and outdoor gyms are safer places to work out than wooded areas or other places well off the beaten path. • Stay hydrated. The NIA notes that many people lose their sense of thirst as they age. But just because you aren’t thirsty does not
mean you don’t need water, especially while exercising. Water regulates body temperature and lubricates the joints, thereby decreasing your risk of injury during exercise. Exercising after 50 can help people live healthy well into retirement. But caution must be exercised when aging men and women return to exercise after a long break.
Catch and release for beginning anglers Fishing is one of the most popular recreational pursuits in North America. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says around 40 million people fish each year. Fishing can be an ideal way to spend time in the great outdoors, and people often bond with family and friends while fishing. As any angler can attest, there’s a rush that comes from getting a small tug on the line and then reeling in a fish. At this point, fishermen must decide if the fish is a keeper or should be tossed back into the water. Sometimes the answer is very clear. Rivers and lakes across the world are managed by various organizations that serve to protect wildlife and natural resources. Rules may be in place regarding the sizes of fish that can be kept, which species are safe and which are protected, and even when people can fish. In a study led by researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey that was published in the journal Fisheries, thousands of distinct populations of fish were studied. Researchers determined that as

many as four out of 10 freshwater species in North America are in danger of approaching extinction. As a result, fishing is regulated by Fish and Wildlife officers and game wardens. Those who are new to fishing or to a particular region must learn and follow the rules regarding fishing. Fishing licenses are typically required to fish in a given state or area. Always speak with
a licensing agency about size restrictions and any other rules regarding species of fish. Also learn about which methods of fishing are legal. Drag nets or other methods of mass fish collection or luring the fish with lights or other equipment may be prohibited. Learning how to safely catch and release fish if the need arises also is an essential component of responsible fishing. When done
correctly, catch-and-release methods can ensure high survival rates and preserve native fish populations. The National Park Service advises those who fish to follow these tips. • Avoid fishing when conditions are stressful for fish, such as when water temperatures are high. • Use equipment that enables one to land the fish quickly without struggle. • Avoid the use of scents and artifical baits that encourage fish to swallow hooks. Learn which bait are prohibited in certain bodies of water. Artificial lures that hook the fish in the lip are preferred. • Avoid playing with the fish to exhaustion. • Keep the fish wet and calm, and treat it gently to remove the hook. Hold the fish underwater and allow it to ventilate before release so it can regain its swimming strength. Fishing is a popular sport and can be enjoyed responsibly.

Stories of a water witcher and a detective By MARK LISAC The Death of Annie the Water Witcher by Lightning, by Audrey J. Whitson Sea of Cortez, by Garry Ryan Yup, Annie is dead all right. Sort of. More or less. But still growing toward a type of fulfilment. You have to give The Death of Annie the Water Witcher (NeWest Press, $19.95) a little time. It weaves together a story seen from different characters’ points of view in the fictional northern Alberta village of Majestic. The separate strands take about fifty pages to start coming together. After that it’s easy to settle in and enjoy the multiple perspectives, which eventually converge. There are some irritations. Several spelling mistakes jump out, like “knarled” in placed of “gnarled” and a married couple’s last name spelled two different ways, in large type no less. Canadian soldiers are placed at Verdun during the First World War although Canadian units never served within 200 kilometres of Verdun. And the overall atmosphere of New Age mysticism may not be to every reader’s taste despite its quirky intrigue. Most of the characters have a full and often surprising life, though. Whitson does a good job of making them believable in their individuality. What’s really attractive is the sense of community built up through the days spanning Annie Gallagher’s death and funeral. The village residents come together in a
spectacular final scene. Many have been hiding something; they gradually drop masks they have worn for their neighbours. People who have shared a certain level of closeness end up feeling closer. They begin to accept and even understand others they live beside. That’s a story of universal application. And who’s to say that any real place is more normal than the rather bent fictional landscape of Majestic?
Sea of Cortez (NeWest Press, $18.95) should satisfy fans of what may be Alberta’s longest running fiction series. Calgary police detective Paul Lane once again finds himself at risk while investigating a criminal conspiracy, this time in Mexico’s Baja peninsula; dealing with a drug gang means he’s in plenty of hot water without going for a swim in the sea. And once again he simultaneously has to cope with a wearing family situation back home. Author Garry Ryan says his novels are more about family than about crime; they also comment on Alberta society, this time taking a dim view of drunken Alberta tourists at a subtropical resort. Readers have a choice of which aspect may interest them more — the adventure serial or the soap opera. A few points in this tenth instalment stretch belief. Lane’s partner Arthur takes a suspiciously active role in the investigation for an accountant. And the natural justice meted out to some of the bad guys – a fulfilment of an old Mexican’s warning not to mess with the sea – is mind-boggling in its unlikelihood despite delivering some amusing satisfaction. The fast pace of the thriller side of the story has enough violence and suspense to overcome the implausibilities and the mushier family drama. The solid character of Lane also keeps things centred. Fans should find it a fun and reliable read; newcomers may find themselves wanting to go back to the series start (Queen’s Park) to fill in the story so far.
Explore these relaxing hobbies Stress is a part of many people’s daily lives. A recent survey from the American Psychological Association found that 44 percent of Americans feel their stress levels have increased over the past five years. Children also are struggling, with almost a one-third reporting that they have experienced a health symptom associated with stress, such as stomach aches, trouble sleeping and headaches. Calming activities that can tone down the body’s stress responses are great ways to alleviate stress. Summertime is an ideal time of the year to embrace relaxing activities because the hustle and bustle of everyday life tends to slow down during the summer, when kids are out of school and vacations are on the docket. These hobbies and other interests can help tame stress by promoting calm. • Listen to and/or play music. Music can be energizing or calming, depending on which music you choose. Researchers at Stanford University found that rhythmic music may have therapeutic effects for treating a range of neurological condi-

tions, as it stimulates the brain and can perhaps change how it functions. Familiar melodies and gentle music can reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol. • Gardening: Gardening lets a person tend to living things while getting some fresh air. Both the sunlight and the activ-
ity itself can be soothing and have a positive effect on mood. A study from the Journal of Health Psychology found that gardening, like listening to music, lowers cortisol levels. • Grab a good book. Taking the time to unwind and read can help ease tension in the muscles, lower one’s heart rate
and induce calm. Research from the consultancy Mindlab International at the University of Sussex found reading reduced stress levels by 68 percent. • Start painting or crafting. Engaging in a creative hobby sharpens the mind and improves focus. You may also want to try focusing emotions onto the canvas to help release tension. A 2014 study published in the British Journal of Occupational Therapy found that 81.5 percent of respondents with depression reported feeling happy after knitting. • Take a dance class. A form of art and music, dancing can promote well-being through exercise and expansion of creative ability. It also can be good for the mind. A study from Swedish researchers that was published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine found that a dancing intervention program, twice weekly for eight months, helped teenage girls struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, and other problems. Many relaxing activities can tame stress, and these activities can be perfect for lazy summer days.

“I LOVE BEVERLy” WINNER By Jason lizotte I love Beverly because of the small town feel. I just recently purchased a home here after living in Victoria for 3 years. It almost reminds me of Victoria as everything is in walking distance and the stores have the small town feel as well as all the walking trails that are minutes away from where I live.
My favourite Beverly business is Widynowskis Sausage, as it is a great product and only blocks from where I live. My favorite restaurants are Uncle Eds, Boston Pizza Beverly (great for Edmonton Eskimos games) and Swiss2go, they make a great sandwich. I look forward to growing older here and being a solid community member.
