Submitted by Lion Lona Lineham June 15th was the Foothill's Lions Club last meeting until September. This does not mean our Lion duties are over for the summer. Lion Davis Whitehead, Lion Willi Craciun, Lion Bob Nelson and Lion Alex DeGagne will be busy keeping our 3 campgrounds running smoothly at - Turner Valley, Longview and Black Diamond. Lion Larry Williams and his crew will be busy chopping and hauling fire wood to keep the

campers happy. We will also be working at our Casino on June 26th and 27th and will be at the Calgary Stampede selling tickets for Lions Lucky Loot. If you see our booth, stop in and say Hi. Leigh Bretzlaff from the Oilfields High School organizes a "Friday Night Fun Night" at the school, during the summer holidays, for youths ages 12 to 17. The Foothills Lions Club gave them $1000.00 to help run activities and games for this project. You are doing a wonder-

ful job Leigh, what a great idea to help keep the youth entertained while they are out of school. Lions Bingo is over until the fall. The first game will be September 17th. Thank you to all our Bingo players and to Joy who calls for the Bingo. We hope to see you all again in September.

By Todd Curran Sheep River Inter-municipal Library got the word out about their project at a June 17th information forum held in the Turner Valley Town Council Chambers. The open house displayed exhibits, presentations and an open discussion between partners and the public regarding construction of a new 10,000 square-foot facility. Construction has already commenced on a site immediately west of the Flare & Derrick and stakeholders are aiming to make the library the most “efficient and green building in Turner Valley.” With insulated concrete forms and other energy efficient features, the new facility will adhere to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver standards. It will also house meeting room space with video conferencing capabilities, free high speed wireless internet and offer the community a variety of courses and programs. Serving the communities of Black Diamond, Turner Valley and the M.D. of Foothills, demand for programs and services offered at the Sheep River Inter-municipal Library has outgrown the current location. Through research and planning to accommodate current and future needs, the Library Board formed a business plan that includes land donated by the Town of Turner Valley and a projected budget of $2.949 million. Estimated annual operational costs average $ 190,000 and the Town will cover any overages. The business plan also indicates expected project benefits to include short and longterm job opportunities, provision of essential services for our growing population and the future possibility of incorporating a community centre on the site.

'Canada's Birthday' a Cause for Celebration Though many Americans might not know it, Canada also has a reason to look forward to the month of July. While Americans spend each July 4 celebrating their independence from Great Britain, July 1st marks the birthday of America's neighbours to the north. On July 1st, 1867, the British colonies in North America, including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada, officially joined and became Canada. On that date, the new country became a federation of four provinces, as the previously known Province of Canada was divided into Ontario and Quebec. While Canada was officially considered its own country on July 1st, 1867, British Parliament did manage to maintain some political control for many years thereafter. Gradually that political control diminished, and in 1982 Great Britain officially surrendered its last vestiges of control. While the anniversary was celebrated by Canadians as early as 1868, the holiday was not officially established until 1879. Even then, the celebration was known as Dominion Day, a reference to the country's designation as a dominion in the British North America Act. What's more, no official celebrations were held for what eventually became known as Canada Day until 1917, which marked the 50th anniversary of Canada's break from Britain. Much of that is likely due to the country's own citizens, many of whom still felt themselves to be primarily British. That indifference continued until the late 1950s, when public opinion began to sway as the country's centennial drew closer. After that centennial arrived in 1967, more and more Canadians embraced what was then still known as Dominion Day. Today, Canadians commemorate Canada Day in fashion similar to how Americans celebrate their own Independence Day. Parades and backyard barbecues are common, as are grandiose nighttime fireworks displays. In addition, citizenship ceremonies for new citizens occur across the country each July 1st.

Save Millie From The Air Force

Millie needs your help. She's running fine, the four cylinders that have dutifully powered her around the Millarville-area countryside for the last 60 years still purring like a kitten. It's just . . . . . well, how do we put this politely? Millie might be young at heart but she could use a trip to the beauty parlour, a real-life makeover. While some may value that new car smell or the shiny sheen of a sparkling truck just off the lot, the folks putting together the 103rd annual Priddis & Millarville Fair think their Millie, a 1950 Massey Harris 44 tractor, is fairly golden in both her age and her well-earned polish of rust, even as her gas engine heart is still as plucky as a spring chicken. Millie will be the subject of an upcoming, unique, summer-long raffle benefiting the non-profit Millarville Racing & Agricultural Society (aka Millarville Racetrack) with the winning ticket being pulled at the August 21st Priddis & Millarville Fair. Millie was donated to benefit MRAS and specifically the Fair by Paul Teskey of PJT Ventures, who also volunteers to run the tractor pull events at the Priddis & Millarville Fair. "To tell you the truth, Millie is actually running better than a lot of the other tractors in my collection so I was actually a little torn about parting with her after I had offered her up to help with the Fair," said Teskey. "But the Fair is a great institution in our community and I wanted to help out as much as I could." "We think Millie is a great symbol of the ranching and agricultural legacy put forward every year, for 103 consecutive years, by the Priddis & Millarville Fair," said Fair Board Chairman Bill Powell. "We considered giving her a touch-up ourselves to make her a little more presentable but thought the choice of how that might be done would be better left in the hands of whomever might take her home. She might be won by a serious collector taking the time to detail her back to her original beauty or it might be someone thinking a better colour scheme would include purple with yellow polka dots. We really don't know what will happen. We'll leave that to the discretion of the winner. As long as Millie gets a good home where she's appreciated and driven around occasionally, we'll be happy and I'm sure she will be as well." However, Millie’s plight

may not have the happy ending many of the Fair organizers might have envisioned. "Myself and my fellow pilots at 419 Squadron here in Cold Lake are hoping to take a shot at winning Millie in the raffle," said Captain Riel Erickson, a Millarville native and one of only a hand-

The MRAS float featuring Millie the Massey has already appeared in the Diamond Valley Days parade in Black Diamond as well as the annual Parade Day in Okotoks. She has other scheduled dates in coming local community events, including a recent invitation to appear at Movie

event. For children, the Fair can be a particularly fun time, entering competitions as varied as junior photography, junior baking or junior woodworking and crafts or taking part in the many activities available, such as a petting zoo or various displays and competitions tailored for their ages.

ful of female fighter pilots in the Canadian Armed Forces. "I'll be at the Fair again this summer, just as I was through many summers while growing up, and being able to take Millie back to the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range with me would be a bit of a thrill,” added Erickson. “I can't promise anything good might happen to Millie once she got there but everyone can be assured she'll have travelled for the first time in her life, she'll have met lots of new and interesting people from foreign lands and her last days will have been given in service to the defence of our country." 419 Tactical Fighter (Training) Squadron is part of the NATO Flying Training Canada (NFTC) program for Canada, Denmark, Italy, Singapore and the Royal Air Force. This program prepares future fighter pilots for training on CF-18 class aircraft and includes Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground combat operational procedures. Capt. Erickson is an instructor in the program and an alumni of Black Diamond’s Oilfields High School. Reading between the lines, it sounds like the Air Force wants to blow Millie to smithereens . . . . and they’re willing to go to the expense of some raffle tickets for the privilege. Tickets for the ‘Millie The Massey’ Raffle will be initially available at the Millarville Racetrack information booth on Millarville Market days (every Saturday), the upcoming July 1st Millarville Races and the soon-to-be rescheduled Millarville Rodeo (snowed out earlier).

Night Under The Stars, June 26th hosted at the racetrack facility by the Millarville Community School. The Priddis & Millarville Fair, which started 103 years ago, brings together generations of ranching and farm families from across southern Alberta to proudly participate in displays and competitions involving livestock, garden produce, baking and other aspects of rural life. The recent increased community engagement has infused the upcoming August 21st Fair with new energy, allowing it to grow by adding more entertaining and educational agricultural games and contests while integrating music and artists into the

There is also a new Priddis & Millarville Fair Youth Committee looking for volunteers 12 to 18 years of age who want to help with ideas and events on Fair Day and contact information is at the Fair website. The Millarville Racing and Agricultural Society (MRAS) was founded in 1907 and oversees all events/functions at the Millarville Race Track, located about 30 minutes southwest of Calgary.

Sheep River Library Dignitaries from the provincial and federal governments will be in attendance at the official sod turning event scheduled for Wednesday, June 30th at 10:00am. The ceremonies will take place at the site of the new facility in Turner Valley followed by refreshments in the Council Chambers. Everyone is invited to this inaugural event recognizing the generous contribution made through the Infrastructure Stimulus Grant and local municipal funding. Community spirit is starting to build and individuals are stepping forward to buy a TILE. Money raised from this initiative of the Friends of the Library, will be used to provide furnishings for the interior of the building. Several tiles were sold during parade day and again at the June 17th open house in Turner Valley. Library patrons are purchasing tiles at the library. Many have signed up for the first paint day which will be held on June 29th.

Official Sod Turning classroom set up. Versatil-

Other paint days are scheduled for July 10th and July 20th. Once the tiles are painted with ceramic paint, they will be fired to a nice shiny glaze. Hopefully all 400 tiles will be sold by October so that they can be mounted on the wall near the children’s section. (See floor map in library). The most important purchases will be new shelving especially for the youth section. A special DVD/CD unit will hold audio video materials in easy to read pull out drawers. Talking books will also be kept in this unit. New magazine racks will be installed in a special reading area that is located very close to the reading garden. Patrons will be encouraged to help themselves to a cup of coffee as they enjoy catching up on the newest magazine publications either in the reading lounge, the fireplace lounge or the reading garden. Meeting rooms will need special tables that can be arranged either for board room style meetings or

ity is keynote for this new community space. Three of the meeting rooms will have video-conferencing capabilities and two of them will have video screens and projectors. Community groups will be encouraged to schedule meetings and events in these spaces when they are not being utilized for information and educational sessions. Larger donations will be recognized on a special shelf located above the circulation desk. Telus and Imperial Oil, the first to donate large amounts, will be recognized for their significant generosity in this location. The plan is to have gold, silver, amber, emerald, etc volumes of books on this decorative shelf indicating varying amounts. SUMMER READING PROGRAM There is still time to sign up for a summer of Jungle fun! Stories, crafts and activities will take place on Wednesdays.

Travel Tracks Perceiving Is Believing Perception is everything. How a company is perceived by both the end user and the shareholder will determine it's success to a far greater extent than almost anything else. Lately, BP could certainly be deemed qualified to speak to that issue. In our own backyard, Westjet came out of the gate 14 years ago as a 2 horse operation that was prepared to take on the big guys. David vs Goliath. At the time, few would have predicted their successful growth to be as solid as it has, primarily based on the dismal track records of almost every other airline on the planet. Yet they gained where others miserably continued to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. What's interesting is that when you break things down, Westjet really isn't all that different from other airlines. They pay the same prices for their aircraft as does everyone else. Ditto for fuel and insurance. Same rent at airports throughout their network. Weather will ground their flights at the same time and in the same way Mother Nature tells the rest of them to ………SIT. As far as pricing is concerned, the airline industry's pretty transparent these days, and a $200 flight on one's pretty much a $200 flight on the other. So really – what is it that makes Westjet different? It's how they approach the concept of dealing with customers and customer issues. Take for example their checked luggage policy. When every other airline decided to further the nickel and diming of their self loading freight, Clive and the gang went out of their way to actually promote the concept of two free bags, free of charge. Not that the average passenger had any intention of taking more than 1 bag on a 2 hour flight mind you, but the message was "take ‘em if you got ‘em," which gave the perception that not only were they open for business, they were wide open for business. Unavoidable delays,

something every carrier is confronted with from time to time, are handled a tad differently at Westjet than they are at some of the charter operators and mega airlines. Instead of hours of non communication at the departure point which more than a few of us have experienced with some, Westjet gets a couple of their people decked out in Kevlar and sends them out into the crowds with a little soft shoe routine and vouchers for future flights. Don't know how many folks actually cash in those vouchers, but again, the perception in the eyes of the client is that these guys stand behind their product and make things right when on occasion it hits the fan. Perception. Reality of course is that this little outfit makes money hand over fist time and time again when others continue to hemorrhage. You'd think that in this day and age of corporate transparency one of "the others" would take a look at what customers like before they plunge with both feet in their mouths into what seems to be a never ending chasm of self destruction. Take for example American Airlines, an airline who once had as their slogan, "DOING WHAT WE DO BEST" . These comedians announced last week that in addition to the litany of existing fees they heap upon the great unwashed, they will begin to charge as much as $38 roundtrip for passengers to be among the first to actually board the aircraft. I say among the first because ahead of the poor schlep who gets hoodwinked into parting with 38 greenbacks will be 1st class, business class, priority members, frequent flyer members of affiliate airlines, families travelling with small children, those needing a little extra time and assistance, military personnel, politicians and those who simply don't care about the rules of order in the first place. By the time members of the 38 club finally get to board, 85% of the passenger load will have already secured 100% of the over-

head bin space with everything from surfboards to used transmissions. And for this an airline wants to charge a premium? Here's just a random thought folks - should not a premium be charged in exchange for some type of benefit to the individual outlaying the fee? Key word - BENEFIT. What's next, a $40 charge to sit next to a passenger with infectious mononucleosis? Or $50 to get clipped in the shoulder by a 60 lb. serving cart? How about $80 to get berated by a flight attendant 3 days shy of collecting her social security? Message to American Airlines: Ever thought about offering advance seat selection and actually enforcing the size of carryon bags brought on board? Might just speed up the boarding process while offering your clients a slightly more enjoyable experience. Considering multi billion dollar losses incurred by American Airlines in each of 2008 and 2009, I'm not convinced that continuing to rub salt into existing passenger wounds is the best way to turn the tide. Passengers might come away with the belief that “DOING WHAT WE DO BEST” pertains to something other than taking care of the hands that feed them. And while American's probably are a bit more sincere with the definition of their mantra than skeptics would see it, it's the perception that counts. And if they think the big bad wolf's in charge, the three little pigs just ain't gonna jump on board. It's just how they perceive things. Adios until next time.

Sheep Creek Arts Council

Decorative Art Sale Submitted by Muriel Dais Evelyn Richmond, past president of the Sheep Creek Arts Council and renowned folk artist, will be offering a collection of her painted works for sale on July 10th and 11th. Evelyn has been a teacher of decorative painting in Turner Valley (at the Arts Council), in Okotoks and in Calgary for many years. As owner of Homestead in Calgary, she brought in decorative artists from the United States, designed patterns of her own and travel taught all over Canada. This sale is the opportunity of a lifetime to purchase items ranging from small ornaments to pieces of furniture painted by Evelyn in the folk styles of many countries. Evelyn is noted as a teacher, but any of her students realize that her talent as a painter sets her

apart as well. She paints in many styles, ranging from Rosmaling (Norwegian folk art), Bauernmalerei (Bavarian folk art) to primitive American folk art. Folk art is the way that ordinary people decorated their furniture and household items to brighten them and give them colour. The original paint was often made using milk and so articles from these early times are rare and highly prized by collectors. Her sale on Saturday, July 10th opens at 10am at the Gallery of Sheep Creek Arts Council, 133 Sunset Blvd, Turner Valley and will continue until 4:00pm. On Saturday, July 11th, the Gallery will be open from 11:00am to 3:30pm. The pieces of art being offered for sale are those which have been Evelyn's personal favourites during her career as an artist and painting teacher.

And I find myself in this strange limbo of sorrow mixed with elation. Throughout his life, he endured so much suffering: financial, physical, emotional and spiritual. Despite his many friends and family who cared for him, and tried so very hard to help him, his feeling of helplessness turned in on him and the stress of it took it's toll on his life. He couldn't celebrate his achievements. He always expected more from himself. His struggle taught me this… We must give our achievements recognition, small or large because those happy moments in life can overcome our feelings of helplessness. Only then do we feel successful. Consider this: If we don't give ourselves a little pat on the back for all of the good work we do on a regular basis, who will? Sure it's

fun to have an opening reception inviting all the world to see a strong body of work, but those are huge accomplishments, built on other small ones, that take months or years to wait for. Why wait? Life is short right? Look around you. What accomplishments have you managed? Did you prune all the bushes on your property? Have you successfully saved another $30 towards a vacation? Was the dirty work on your vehicle worth the mess? Is your storage room more of a room instead of a hoarders' path? Celebrate that newly discovered art technique! Call a friend and break out that bubbly and enjoy your mini-victories! Now I'm not saying that you should be jumping out of helicopters just because you got the lid off the pickle jar…by yourself- just start giving yourself 'credit where credit is due'…but, note-to-self, keep those credit cards far, far away from your revelry!

bringing the “good” of your community to you

www.gatewaygazette.ca

As yet another school year draws to a close we have included our annual tribute to the graduating students of our area. At the same time we would like to recognize all the other students who have accomplished so much this year and will be returning next year a little older and a little wiser. Rather than spread our school community news throughout the Gazette as we normally do, we have decided to group everything we have received for this issue together and flank the graduates' centre pages with news from all the schools, many of which our graduates will have attended during the course of their educational journey. We would also like to thank the many teachers who have contributed to this journey both during class time and during all the extra hours you have donated to our future leaders. Going the 'extra mile' and dedication 'beyond the call of duty' come to mind. You work almost silently behind the scenes molding and shaping your students. Without your care and influence, your students would not have developed the caring, knowledge, athleticism, skills and talent they possess. You have nurtured them and succeeded. We have also received many accolades from the schools for the part we have attempted to play in their journey. We give as much space as we can every issue to the news from the schools and we thank the schools for the contributions they have made to our community newspaper and look forward to many more contributions next year. As the newspaper that 'Brings the Good of Your Community to You' we would not be able to fulfill our mandate and philosophy without the school news. Thank you all, once again and have a great summer! ~ The Gazette Staff

C. Ian McLaren News By Todd Curran C. Ian McLaren School in Black Diamond is experiencing a growth spurt, as their new modular unit gets attached to the rest of the building. “There's space available for up to 10 portables according to school population,” says C. Ian McLaren principal Sherry Agasoster-Jones. “We had 130 kindergarten to grade eight students when I started here four years ago. Now we're running kindergarten to grade six

TURNER VALLEY SCHOOL NEWS

A community of lifelong learners who are prepared to succeed in the 21st Century through dynamic and engaging school experiences in a respectful and supportive environment. Believe it or not, the end of another school year is clearly on the horizon. A glance at the attached calendar will confirm, June is easily among the busiest months of any school's year. In the space of the next 4 weeks courses wrap up, year-end exams are completed and marked, awards celebrated, field trips enjoyed/survived and final reports written. Somewhere in the midst of all this, planning for the 2010-11 school year must also take place. This year has been a tremendous year for Turner Valley School. We have made some impressive gains in reading competence through our Tigers Reading Improvement Program (TRIP). Our staff is very proud of the effort that students have made in this area. Our academic We Proudly Honour our results remain very high.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of July and includes landscaping around the new addition. “The plan is to get curbs and a sidewalk

street installed,” she says. “A looping driveway will also be built so that the kids can be dropped off safely.” Enhancements to the school next year include new playground equipment, for which the school has raised $29,700. “We raised $22,000 at our casino night, got a $5,000 donation from the Lions Club, $1,000 from the RCMP Charity Golf Tournament and money from our plant sale and participation in the Merchants Festival,” says Sherry. “We had a really good time and will be doing something like that again next year.” Sherry will be applying for a matching provincial grant for the school playground equipment and aims to have the apparatus installed in the spring of 2011.

return of Ms. Bearance from her leave. Our commitment to school excellence in all of its variations remains sharply focused and we look forward to working closely with parents to provide the best possible learning opportunities for all. As ever, please give us a call if you have any questions, suggestions or wish to discuss anything about our school. And if we don't see you before the end of the year, many thanks for your solid support and have a great summer. Yours in education, Rob Bennington, Deb Bearance 30 + TIMES AT HOMEWORK CLUB HOORAY FOR…… Brittany Henderson Brittany came to our school just before Christmas. She came to us from C. Ian McLaren School in Black Diamond. She loves to come to homework club so she can have the use of a computer. This young lady thinks that Mrs. Macdonald is cool. Brittany likes our school because it's bigger than her other schools. She enjoyed being one of the townspeople in spring theatre and wants to try out for a speaking part next year. Brittany is looking forward to the summer so she can go swimming and fishing and she will have time to jump on her trampoline. We thank you for attending homework club and hope that you have a wonderful summer, Brittany! Brianna Nicholson Brianna has been coming to homework club for 3 years now. She likes to attend because she can get caught up on her homework and can finish things that she doesn't get enough time for in class. She also likes to have free time on the computer.

This student thinks that Mr. Berrigan is a great teacher. She reports that he is nice and that he does fun stuff with the class like Survivor Science and building cars. Brianna is looking forward to the field trip to Frank Slide at the end of the year. Next year, Brianna will be attending Oilfields High School. We will miss her immensely at homework club. Good luck, Brianna!

CIM Is Rolling In Play Dough By Todd Curran On June 23rd, C. Ian McLaren School in Black Diamond received $5,000 from the Lions Club and a $1,000 donation from the RCMP toward new playground equipment. “We researched what other schools have and what equipment is available,” says CIM Principal Sherry Agasoster-Jones. “The playground will have

an Apollo merry-go-round that doubles as a climbing apparatus, new swings and a gazebo built by the Foothills Composite High School welding program. Oilfields High School is building us benches and baby swings so that the entire community can enjoy the area.” “This is part of our initiative to assist the youth and support the commu-

nity,” says Lions Club President Larry Williams. Presenting the cheque on behalf of the RCMP, Constable Hrdlicka expressed similar zeal for positive involvement, saying, “We're all about helping youth and seniors in the community and we're doing our part.” The playground is scheduled for completion in spring of 2011.

“Driller Ball”. Thanks to Ms. Douglas for your enduring work and for your tireless efforts to build opportunities for students to engage in experiences in the outdoors. Thanks to all the staff who collectively gave of their time to participate in the expeditions and to join students in these experiences. I would like to extend special thanks to my “co-pilots” who inspired me daily and from whom I learned and shared the true meaning of unconditional caring and love for kids and people . . . Mrs. Glaicar and the office staff: Mrs. Lansdell, Ms. Gauzer and Mrs. Hein. I have had the great fortune of working with very qualified, dedicated and compassionate staff members. It truly has been an honour for me to work with such devoted colleagues who really understand the meaning of doing whatever it takes to ensure students are successful and taken care of at Oilfields High School! Congratulations to the new leadership team at Oilfields High School. I know that their shared belief “to do whatever it takes for kids” will resound through the Oilfields' hallways for many years to come. I offer them my very best wishes always! There are new and very exciting curricular improvements and educational initiatives on the horizon for OHS. We, the Oilfields staff, are very proud of our School Community and extremely appreciative of your constant support and encouragement. May you and your families have a sensational summer, filled with good health and relaxing activities. And with my deepest gratitude, I shall take my leave and forever keeping that familiar refrain within “Once A Driller Always A ...…....DRILLER!!!!” Best Wishes & Happy New Year

Ric Morales OHS Principal 2010

www.gatewaygazette.ca

It was with sadness that the Gazette Staff learned that Mr. Morales, Mr. Musgrove and Mrs. Cederstrand will be leaving Oilfields High School. During our coverage of school events since 2004 we have come to know and respect these educators. We wish them all the best in their future and know that the schools to which they are going will benefit greatly from their dedication, fairness, advocacy and unself-

ish giving to the community, be it school or town. We sincerely hope that they too will remember “Once a Driller…Always a Driller!” and return often. To Mr. Morales: I believe you have shown the students in your care that a High School is the hub of a community and that respect is a two-way street that is earned. To Mr. Musgrove: Your dedication to your students, both current and past, has

never waivered even when tested by them! You have been much more than a teacher and coach to them ~ you are, and always will be, their friend and mentor. To Mrs. Cederstrand: You have been a dedicated advocate of the athletics' program and given freely of your time, setting the example to your students that it is better to give than to receive. You will be missed. Pam Jones, Gazette Editor.

The 24th Annual K100 is now complete for another year and by the attendance (approximately 180 runners) I would say they had another very successful year. Congratulations to all the competitors in the 2010 race and hope to see you again next year. Also on the same weekend, Mat's Ride took place. For those of you who have no idea what Mat's Ride is about, take a few minutes to go to the website. A worthwhile cause and it sounds like a fun day to meet up with friends new and old. The web address is: www.matsride.org. Now the summer gets really busy. By the time this is printed the first Box Lunch Social will have taken place in Centennial Park in Longview with a parade of the hats and bonnets and period dress by the ladies as well as some live music and of course, the box

lunches! Hope you all have a chance to get to it. Since Canada Day falls in the middle of the work week this celebration will be kicking off our summer and the evening will bring fireworks at the skating rink at Dusk. Keep checking on the Village of Longview web page for information on Longview Daze and Longview Stampede Rodeo to take place on Friday, July 16th through July 18th. The stampede rodeo slack begins at 1:00 pm at the rodeo grounds with a main performance on Friday evening as well as Saturday evening and the parade at 10:00 am on Saturday. The days are full of activities at the Fire Hall, Village Hall, school grounds, Centennial Park and yard sales throughout the Village. Ball games at the school and music in the park as well as Cowboy Church and Children's activities.

The schedule is posted under Longview Daze Events at: village.longview.ab.ca so take a few minutes and plan your weekend. More updates to come as the date approaches. On another note, the dandelions have bloomed and blown and are in the second bloom and we ask that each owner do their best to keep them under control. For the pet owners, just a reminder that it's always great to see happy owners and animals but please remember to pick up after your pets, little children walk there too. Enjoy the great weather and be happy that we aren't under water as some parts of the province are. Chey Nickerson Longview

“Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you…” (John 6:27 NLT) "Don't look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don't fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention.” (Matthew 7:13, 14 The Message So even though that shortcut looks green and inviting, don't be tempted to go on it. Staying on the straight path with a true purpose in your heart of finding God will result in you finding your goal – a deep, meaningful, rich and personal relationship with a personal God who loves you more than life itself.

The way to God is not through shortcuts either. Whether you are a seeker of truth, a seeker of God, a seeker of eternal life or a seeker of peace, (in the end, all these pathways lead directly to God) it cannot happen through

When you install a new software program on your computer there is a way you can have a shortcut on your desktop. In travelling we often look for that shortcut that will make our drive shorter and quicker. As a student, I was always looking for ways to learn that material in the quickest and best way for that exam I had to write (often the next day!). Trying shortcuts in the bush and forest often leads to getting lost and being disorientated. Have you noticed that when you cook a recipe that if you take shortcuts it often doesn't taste as good as the original version? In construction, when shortcuts are taken, one often has a house that has been built substandard and of poor quality.

www.gatewaygazette.ca by Eric Francis A r i e s (March 20-April 19) We are now in the season of eclipses. These happen twice a year; the last time around was during the holiday season of late 2009. The first of the pair was on June 26th and the second will be July 11th. They are in Cancer and Capricorn, the signs that contain the most energy and information about family patterns. In the month of July, we have the opportunity to release the old patterns that have kept us anchored to the past. Some are mental; most are emotional. They include our old ideas about marriage, obligation and seeming tradition; what we get to embrace instead is balance, equanimity and a sense of our own vital presence in the world. For a while we may seem to be in two worlds at once: but reality will have its effects. Taurus (April 19-May 20) No excuses: this is your time to take territory in life, in your profession and within your own personality. There are almost always thoughts and ideas that interfere with this, and a lunar eclipse in your 10th solar house of career and ambition is clearing away parental emotional patterns, especially the fears of your mother and grandmother. The catch is that circumstances that depend on you remaining in the emotional role of child are going to get shaken up. Plan to have a series of events wherein you take back all the power you gave away as a kid, and the psychic patterns that keep you stuck in this mode. You cannot do this in theory. You can only do it through experience: that is, a direct confrontation with your insecurities. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Gemini (May 20-June 21) Few people admit the extent to which they are driven by their emotions. We like to think of ourselves as calm, rational and reasonable people, though anyone familiar with the most basic rules of logic knows that they are hardly ever followed. If your astrology means anything, you tend to fit this description. What you desire changes like the tides. You often feel you 'need' things that are not important to you. And you are driven by your sentiments more than befits someone with such an astute mind as you have. You're in the process of letting go of much of this stuff, and when you do, you will notice that you're no longer so easy to influence or control. You'll be willing to stand your ground in

bringing the “good” of your community to you your relationships (and they will be more fun when you do). Cancer (June 21-July 22) Many factors this month point to the theme of cleaning house. Whatever this may mean spiritually, I suggest you start digging out closets and filling trash bags. Once you start, you'll feel so good you won't want to stop. The same process may be underway in your relationships: you no longer need to live your parents' notion of wholesome partnership. Usually, it was nothing of the kind, and the ideas they suffered were passed down from antiquity. One of the great challenges you face in this lifetime is modernizing your concept of what a 'secure' relationship is; which means facing up to the many ways that idea failed. Are you ready to take an original approach to the matter of love? Events this month will guide you steadily in that direction, and it begins two ideas: truth and trust. Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) Events this month will offer a portal into a dimension of your emotional life that is always a few shades off the visible spectrum. You don't need to dive into these feelings; rather, start by feeling your way around the edges, and getting a sense of the dimensions of the territory. You can enhance your understanding by giving words to what you notice, even when the sentiments involved are fearful or difficult to articulate. Your mission now is learning to be undaunted by your fears. Exceedingly few of them are valid. They simply run you in circles, and oddly, you often don't always know what they are. The veil between you and this inner realm is growing thin, and you need the information that's in there. Keeping it out in the open will make your life and your relationships easier. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) Saturn leaves your sign this month, ending an unforgettable two-year era of your life. Yet the same theme repeatedly turns up in your charts, and I do mean going back at least seven years: you are confronted by people who are innovative, electric and alive, and they make you nervous. You worry about your stability; you judge yourself as frail in contrast to the seeming might of others. Here is one way to consider the issue: In your relationships, you tend to put yourself in the position to respond or react, rather than a co-creative role. You think others call the shots, which is only true if you abandon a dialog. Make a list of what you refuse to talk about and you'll see where your power goes - and where you can claim it back.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) Saturn returns to your sign this month, arriving for a two-year journey. You may read predictions that treat this like the embodiment of all that can go wrong or set a limit. Let's go back to traditional astrology. Saturn is the exalted ruler of Libra: it has a potent and core-level relationship to your sign. The experience of Saturn is about aligning yourself within the physical world, defining your purpose in a clear way and coming into your full strength and freedom as an adult. If there's a catch, it's about your relationship to what I will call 'appearances'. It would help if you made a promise to yourself that you will drop your persona, facade or attempt to play a role, and instead present yourself as you are. This may be challenging at first, but you will eventually love how much it saves you in needless energy and useless complication. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) Despite the cynicism unfairly pinned to descriptions of your sign, you're deeply sentimental and have a strong connection to the person you were when you were a child. Now, that particular angle of your horoscope is coming into focus. I suggest you do three things on this occasion: look at every goal you have today and ask yourself how long you've had it for, and whether it's still valid. Check whether you're still adjusting your life to meet the expectations of your mother. Then, one last thing: as a child you had some idealistic visions for yourself; you had glorious plans and bold confidence about them. Where did they go? If you get everyone else's fears and expectations out of the way, you may decide that they are every bit as meaningful today as they where when you were little. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) You are in rare form, and you don't have to stop. The ideas you've been having recently will provide creative fuel for the next year. You may feel like there are times when you're running your creative engines too hot. You will cool down soon enough, which will help you orient your ambitious creative goals on the longer territory you will need to cross to make them real. Your charts say you're having a series of breakthroughs. Then you take what you learn and accomplish, slow down the process and then, using a different kind of creativity, develop things to the next stage and bring them back into the world. Remember, this is all about focusing an experiment based on discoveries you're making now. You have no reason to doubt and every reason to affirm that you are in a rare and brilliant zone.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Abandon all the ideas of safety and security that your parents and grandparents drummed into your head. You're not betraying them; you are honoring them by going beyond their petty fears. Be aware of the extent to which those fears have influenced you -- and how much better you'll feel when you let them go. While those fears seemed to center on money, home, family and security, they have translated into your life as reluctance to express yourself boldly. If you want to feel safe, be resolutely yourself. If you want to feel like you belong on the planet, express your boldest thoughts, feelings and passions. The world will move over and make room for you. Where you fear judgment, you will encounter respect. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) For every truth you discover in yourself, there seems to be an equal and opposite potential. Yet it can grow tiresome never being able to make up your mind about which is the valid path. You're aware of this, at least: the opposites you perceive contain one another; you know they are part of the same thing. They are integral to one another. Your ruling planet Saturn is about to enter your 9th solar house, where you experiment with your ideas about life and formulate the plans that get you to the next place. Saturn's presence is about drawing from both sides of any seeming paradoxes, concepts or theories that you use as the basic fuel for living. Now you get to experience the strength, confidence and clarity that come when you integrate your seeming polarities. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20 Focus on feeling good. If you reach the blue spot, keep moving. If you catch yourself feeling like you 'don't deserve' anything, focus on affirming your existence and remind yourself that you contribute far more than you take from the world. Indeed, you are a resource that is only available when you are feeling positive and strong, and this resource feeds you as well. Remember, there is nothing you need to do first in order to be enlightened. Well, nothing except to want peace of mind and abundance. In your particular chart setup, this involves remembering who you are all the time, and simply being that person. There is no game here; you are who you are, and as you experience this, the flow of life energy will increase and be available for whatever you choose. And those are the key words: you choose.

Two local Lions have received the ultimate and highest recognition from the Lion’s Club International Foundation. Lions Tyler Bray and Dave Parson received the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award at the Foothills Lions Club wind up event on Sunday, June 13th. On their plaques is the inscription “For Dedicated Humanitarian Service”. Attending the ceremony were husband and wife, Ben and Christine Pond, who are both past District Governors, which is also a unique achievement. The Melvin Jones Fellowship Program was established in 1973 in honour of Melvin Jones, the founder of Lions Clubs International. Melvin Jones Fellowships (MJFs) are given to individuals in recognition of unrestricted

donations of US$1,000 to the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF). If the donor so chooses, he/she can use their donation credit to honour another individual with an MJP. The MJF Program is the backbone of LCIF funding. More than 70% of the donations to LCIF are donated through the MJF program. Continued promotion of the MJF program will be an essential element of successful individual and club fundraising efforts. MJF recognition is a symbol of dedication to humanitarian service. Clubs can also donate to the program and use those funds to name individuals as MJFs.

Careers of Tomorrow

Part One was featured in our June 1st, 2010 issue. if you missed it you can read it online at: www.gatewaygazette.ca

By Todd Curran The continued integration and advancements of information technology and digital communications into the private, public and voluntary sectors ensures the continuance of this trend for some time. IT careers include systems and data analysts, hardware and software engineers, systems and database administrators. Systems analysts, designers, computer programmers, web developers, consultants and information managers reflect the range of career possibilities in these areas. Another guaranteed growth area is the healthcare sector. Healthcare careers include physician assistants, physical therapists,

dental hygienists and by extension, the relatively new area of forensic sciences. Workers in this industry could consider entering the healthcare sector as a nurse, nursing aide or orderly. The increasing number of healthcare jobs is directly attributable to people living longer (expanding the number of people in older age groups) and medical technology, services and drug advancements. Due to the expansion, there is an increase in physiotherapy, administrative and support roles as well. Other hot future careers await you in the sciences. Bio scientists such as tissue engineers and gene programmers will be in high demand, but other skilled workers will be needed for administration infrastructure, as it will grow in proportion to the companies. New scientific areas such as nano-technology and energy technology will

also need similar employees. With an increased demand for educated employees, someone has to communicate all this knowledge. Teachers, tutors and instructors will be needed to train the workforce of the future. Other existing services will grow further as the population ages, including professions in the legal sector (lawyer, paralegal), police, fire fighting, entrepreneur, financial advice, business consulting and valuation, physical training and tourism industry. Although “going green” has been a long, slow process, making and installing solar power systems already accounts for some 770,000 jobs globally. Installing solar-thermal water heaters and rooftop photovoltaic cells is a relatively high-paying job, installers earning $15 to $35 an hour for those with construction skills. With

government tax credits and money to be saved on energy costs, the Solar Energy Industries Association predicts an increase of these jobs for years to come. Another field of opportunity in alternative forms of energy is in wind, the fastest-growing source with over 300,000 jobs worldwide. Metal turbines create an opportunity for autoworkers and other manufacturers to repurpose their skills. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't researched it, but writing of all disciplines - script writing, technical writing, content writing - are professions predicted to explode in the future. While it's an intimidating task to build a career with a long shelf life, preparing yourself for the future will serve you well in developing new skills, improving your employment prospects and discovering your career of tomorrow.

I expect after the community activity days there were a lot of sore feet around. My husband and I love to walk and because of health concerns we have to make sure our feet are well taken care of. Anyone who has diabetes knows that special care must be taken to keep their feet in good health and see their doctor regularly for that purpose. For the rest of us, it's just common sense and everyone should be reminded there is simple hygiene to follow to keep your feet healthy. Here are some hints to walk away with.

blockages in the veins in your legs and feet, talk to your doctor about the consequences. The next most important is to make sure your shoes fit correctly and are comfortable, they should not rub and you should be able to wiggle your toes. Leather is the best choice as it will allow your feet to breath. Wear socks that wick away perspiration and don't rub. Don't go bare foot, especially outdoors, indoors wear comfortable, closed slippers. Although they are popular, flip flops are not healthy for your feet, they don't provide any arch support and are the Acreage & Commercial Development Specialists

cause of many accidental trips. In your daily shower or bath use a loofah or a rough cloth to soften calluses, don't try to cut away rough skin, you may go too deep and open yourself to infection. Don't try to treat corns, calluses or ingrown toenails yourself, see a doctor. Make sure your feet are well dried and then use a good cream or lotion all over except between your toes where the moisture has no way of evaporating. Don't expose your feet to water that is too hot or too cold. When you cut your toenails, the best time is after your bath or shower, cut them straight across, so that the corners are above the skin line, then smooth the nail with an emery board. It's also important to check your children's feet and make sure their shoes fit properly, small feet grow so fast, you may have to change their size a couple of times a season. Watch for blisters or toes that look cramped after removing their shoes. I don't particularly like san-

dals on children, without socks they are inclined to rub or get small stones or sand in them that can irritate a small foot. Don't allow a child to play outside barefoot. If you have overworked your feet, and they are sore, try soaking them in a basin of lukewarm water with a handful of Epsom salts, dry them thoroughly, smooth on some lotion with either a peppermint or lavender base and elevate them for a bit (my grandmother's recipe for achy feet). I like to have a pedicure every now and again, although I enjoy the treat, I've been warned by my doctor that: #1, Don't shave your legs before a visit as small nicks or cuts can open you up to infection. #2, Make sure the basin has been sterilized. #3, Make sure all instruments have been sterilized or take your own. Finally, #4, Take your own nail polish. Hope these hints make your summer walks comfortable and easy on your feet.

From My Bookshelf....

I love to read. I also love your recommendations and with reading as much as I do I am bound to get some books that don't appeal to me. The two I am reviewing this week really just made me cranky and sad and I begrudged my time spent on them. You, however, may have an entirely different opinion. Stolen Innocence ~ Elissa Wall My Story of Growing up in a Polygamous Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs This book was recommended to me, sat on my

bookshelf for a year and a half, then recommended again. It is not the type of book I usually read and I knew the content was going to be bizarre and upsetting. The rigidity of the church is shocking, the effects of brain washing deteriorate into an unwanted marriage for the author at the age of 14. Rape and abuse and several miscarriages are the result. The ultimate betrayal, though, was the defection of her mother, who believes this is right for her daughter, if the church says so. The writing is amaturish and the silly and inconse-

By Lynn Willoughby quential details are more than any child could ever remember. I didn't finish the book. I had heard the details of Warren Jeffs and his trial after his move to Bountiful, BC. It was hard to miss as it was in every newcast, so I already knew that outcome. I cherish the time I spend reading, and although I pretty much knew the content of this book, I found it extremely upsetting. I read a variety of genres and subjects, including controversial subjects, a new twist on an historical event, even some blasphemous humour, but I could not stomach this book. I actually threw it in the garbage the first time I have EVER done that with a book. The Book of Negroes ~ Lawrence Hill This was another book highly recommended to me. It is about the life of an 11 year old girl, stolen from her village in West Africa, forced to walk in a coffle for months, brought to North America on a slave ship and eventually sold as a slave to a South Carolina

indigo grower. Years later, she has her freedom, knows how to read and write, and works for the British during the Revolutionary War with the United States. She records names, including her own, in the Book of Negroes, a record of freed Loyalist slaves who have requested permission to leave the US and settle in Nova Scotia. Life is not idyllic for them here, either. There is still oppression and eventually Aminata returns to Sierra Leone - passing ships still carrying thousands of slaves bound for America.

This back to Africa odyssey was too much for me. I felt like slapping her and asking what she thought she would find in Africa. The book is well written. The little known historical facts about the Black Loyalists and their immigration to Canada was interesting, but I could not be sympathetic or connect with the protagonist on any level. Enough said. I know many of you really liked it, so I recommend reading it and making your own decision.

Who Knew? Between 1776 and 1785 around 3500 Black Loyalists were transported to Nova Scotia from the United States - part of a larger migration of about 34,000 Loyalist refugees. The population of Nova Scotia increased by almost 60% and this led to the establishment of New Brunswick as its own colony in 1784.

GARDENS GALORE By Marika d’Ailly

Gardening is a passion. Once you have the bug, there is no stopping. Not everybody is equally committed, but members of a Garden Club are for sure interested and learn from the feedback they get from each other. In a Garden Club we exchange plants, share know-how, go on a garden tour to private gardens, enjoy a garden related outing and we do our part as volunteers. To raise money we have each year a plant sale with donated plants from our own gardens. Some of the money raised, goes to a worthy cause, of course with a green purpose. This year we cleaned up the gardens around the hospital

in Black Diamond in May. The town's planters in Turner Valley were planted by the group. Several of our members come with a wealth of experience and have established gardens and then there are those, who are new in the province and have to learn to work within the possibilities of the conditions around here. We love to meet those, who for the first time get excited about growing things. Of course the old timers have seen it all, drought, excessive rain, snow in July, hail as big as golf balls, extensive winter kill, frost too late or too early in the season, name it. We draw on each

other's enthusiasm and share stories about our successes and failures. There is a lot of advice out there, when you ask. So maybe you are interested in joining a Garden Club. It is the anticipation of the next season that keeps us forever motivated. Both Clubs start again in September. The Valley Neighbours Garden Club meets every third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. For information call Susan at 403-933-7675. The Horticultural Club meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm. For information call Sheila at 403-9313989.

EXECUTIVE RETREAT! Are you particular? Have you been looking for something very special? This twenty acre Executive Estate is exactly that! From the private gate at the end of the road to the tip of the hill top there is no comparison to this complete package. Every inch of the home is meticulous and immaculately completed. Glistening hardwood floors and custom rock work abounds. See the Majestic Rockies from almost every window.
