Bring the Supplies

LEMONADE KIDS GETTING INTO THE

BUSINESS

Make lemonade—and money— from lemons this summer By Markwell Lyon

S

imple, cool, refreshing — nothing says summer quite like a delicious cup of lemonade. So why not turn your love of lemonade into a business? Setting up your own stand is a great way to make some extra money this summer and it’s super easy to do. Following our tips below, you’ll be well on your way to a fun and profitable summer.

Pick Your Spot One of the first things you’ll want to do is choose a location for your stand. Some kids like to set up shop in front of their homes. That’s a great idea, if your parents are busy and you don’t want to carry your stuff too far. Older, more ambitious kids, though, might look for a place with more

foot traffic — near parks, festivals, farmers’ markets or businesses, for example. Just make sure that wherever you go, you have permission to sell lemonade there.

Take a Stand So, now you have your location. Before you can start selling lemonade and making money, though, you’ll need an actual stand. Pick out a table and chairs that are sturdy and large enough, but which can also fold up, making them easier to move. And remember to bring a nice tablecloth to cover your table. It’ll make your stand look nicer and more professional — attracting more customers — and help keep your table clean from spills.

Besides your stand, you’ll have to pick up some necessities. Obviously, you’ll need a pitcher for your lemonade, preferably one with a cover to keep the bugs out. Bring plenty of cups as well so that your customers have something to drink with. You might also want to provide other extras: napkins, straws, and maybe even ice. Just remember, though, not to make too much garbage. The cups and any other supplies you provide should be easy to recycle.

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Spread the Word

6 cups water

Next, you’ll have to let people know that you’re open for business. Make a few eye-catching posters and signs to tell your customers where and when you’re open. You’ll also need a sign to put on your stand to display your prices. If you’re good with computers, there are some useful programs and apps you can use to create awesome posters or signs. You might even want to use social media, like Facebook or Instagram, to get the word out before and during your open hours.

Set a Price Another thing to think about is how much you’re going to charge. This may take some planning. If you’ve spent money on supplies—such as lemonade powder or cups—you will want to sell enough lemonade to make that money back and turn a profit, as well. When deciding how much to charge for your delicious lemonade, you don’t want to charge too much or too little. It might also be a good idea to charge an easy-to-remember price, such as $1 per cup. This will make it easier to calculate prices if customers buy more than one cup at a time, and it will make it easier to count back change. n

Last, but not least, you’ll need to make lemonade. There are almost as many different recipes out there as there are lemons. Here are two you can try out on your own:

Simple Homemade Lemonade 2 ½ cups sugar 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice Lemon slices Ice (optional) Add the sugar to the water and stir until it’s dissolved. Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Refrigerate until chilled, then add the lemon slices and ice. Serve.

Orange Lemonade 2 ½ cups warm water 6 cups cold water 1 ½ cups orange juice 12 fresh lemons 1 ½ cups sugar 2 tbsp. lemon zest Squeeze and remove the juice from the lemons. Make the lemon zest by grating the lemon peels. Set aside. Add the sugar to the warm water and stir until dissolved. Add the cold water, orange juice, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Refrigerate to chill. Serve.

On the street or in your seat, enjoy authentic Mexican street food!

The juicy facts on a classic favourite By Lisa Szabo

MIND YOUR MANNERS There is hot dog etiquette. Use tongs when picking hot dogs up from a serving tray. Puncturing them with a fork causes juices to get out. When dressing a dog, add liquid toppings like ketchup and mustard first, then toppings like cheese, onions or relish. It is best to apply toppings to the dog, not the bun.

VARIATIONS ON A CLASSIC Exploring the world of hotdogs, you will find some creative ideas. Some unique ideas include, The French-fry-encased frank in South Korea, which is sold at road-side artisan stands. In New York, you can find a $14 hot dog called The Ditch Dog in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. The hot dog is encased in a potato bun and topped with Gruyere/ American/Parmesan mac ‘n cheese.

THE BIGGEST! The Guinness World Record for the world’s largest hot dog goes to the Akasaka Prince Hotel in Tokyo, which was 60.3 m in length.

FIRST CLASS DOG Looking to splurge on your hotdog purchase, Serendipity 3 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side goes for $69. The “haute” dog is a 12-inch-long pure beef frankfurter grilled in white truffle oil. It’s then served on a salted pretzel bun from Germany and coated with white truffle butter. The condiments are extravagant and include duck fois gras, black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard with more black truffles. n summercity.ca

The Great

BBQ

Fuel Forum

Summer’s back, meaning it’s time to revisit a heated debate By Markwell Lyon

W

ith barbecue season upon us, it’s a good time to bone up on your barbecue game. That might be difficult, given the dizzying array of barbecue choices on the market. We take a quick look at the various options out there in terms of their heat source: gas, charcoal, or electric.

Gas Gas barbecues, like the name says, use a gas to provide the heat to cook meat. The gas may vary, but commonly it is propane, butane, or natural gas. Of the various barbecue methods, gas might be the happy medium—you get the flavour of an open flame without the learning curve of cooking with charcoal or hardwood. But, as they do use an open flame, which can flare up, gas grills need to be kept a safe distance from structures—like your house—to avoid fires. And that means space is needed, something your average apartment or condo dweller may not have. Nonetheless, gas barbecues are relatively simple to use, as they make it easy to provide a constant level of heat, making them the go-to choice with many backyard chefs.

Charcoal Charcoal grills have exploded in popularity in recent years. The reason? It’s all about the taste. No other heat source, arguably, captures the flavour of smoke the way that charcoal does. Another benefit of charcoal is that it can be started and used with almost no open flame, making some varieties of charcoal grills okay to use in smaller spaces (some buildings might still not allow charcoal barbecues on balconies, though). It’s also a slow cooking option and requires a lot of patience and time to learn how to cook with those black lumps. Charcoal is also dependent on atmospheric conditions to take BBQ to the max. On humid, windless days, there may not be enough oxygen for the charcoal to burn constantly.

Electric Finally, electric grills are another option for barbecue aficionados. These will use electricity as their heat source, making them ideal in many cases for apartment balconies, and some varieties can even be safely used indoors. Although not as popular as gas, and often more expensive, electric grills are quick and convenient. For those seeking optimal flavour, however, electricity may not be the way to go. For obvious reasons, they don’t quite capture the flavour of smoke, and they may not provide the intense heat required for searing. They are easy to use however, providing instant and predictable heat at the press of a button, making them ideal for quick meals and rainy days. n

Place a few handfuls of ice cubes in a pitcher, and top with the Italian soda, sparkling water, grape juice and lime juice. Next, add the mint leaves, frozen grapes, raspberries and lemon slices. Stir, and serve.

4 sprigs rosemary To make the syrup, bring the water, sugar and rosemary to a boil in a small pot; reduce the heat to low, and let simmer 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, strain the syrup and cool it to room temperature before placing in the fridge to chill. Rim a Martini glass with lemon sugar, and set it aside. Next, pour all the cocktail ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, secure the lid and shake until chilled. Strain into the prepared martini glass and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a cherry. n

FOOD

Poutine Your Summer Away! Eight destinations, eight great versions T

he story of this signature Canadian dish begins with its quixotic invention in 1950’s Quebec and continues to be shaped by a variety of multicultural influences. Some say there’s only one way to make it—fries, cheese curds and gravy—but here are eight celebration-worthy versions that beg to differ. To each their own—poutine!

1. Canadian Brewhouse thecanadianbrewhouse.com

Around 2002, this Alberta chain seemed destined for dive-bar status. But when the company undertook a major image overhaul, refabbing its restaurants and completely overhauling its menus, Canadian Brewhouse emerged with one of the most impressive selections of food and drink of any chain on the market. And that includes their multitude of poutine selections—seven, to be exact. We tried the braised-beef version hoping that you couldn’t go wrong with tender, slow-cooked beef and a little BBQ sauce topping off a soup of gravy, cheese and fries. We were right. The perfect drink pairing? Two words: Osoyoos Caesar.

2. Delux Burger Bar deluxburgerbar.com

It’s not unusual for bars to serve poutine, but Delux Burger Bar serves one of the best-looking and most generously sized versions around. The gravy, of which they are certainly generous in offering, has great flavour, though (if you’re going to be picky) is not as hearty as the competition’s. What can’t be beat? Chasing it down with a draft while catching a Jay’s game on the big screen.

OPEN 3. Goldrush Eatery 10405 Jasper Avenue

Some people insist that poutine be made with cheese curds. But not at the Goldrush Eatery. Located in the Standard Life Centre in Edmonton since 1982, Goldrush uses shredded cheese to produce a formidable poutine. Gravy can be like nectar of the gods, and Goldrush has come close to crafting their own version. It’s salty enough to hit the spot, but not so much that you need to chase it with litres of water. The shredded mozza virtually liquifies into the gravy, creating a sumptuous pool of deliciousness. If the word poutine does mean “mess” in French slang, Goldrush wins the prize for the most accurate representation.

4. Jack’s Burger Shack jacksburgershack.ca

Founded in Slave Lake in 2012, Jack’s Burger Shack relocated to its current Perron St. location in 2013 and has since expanded into Edmonton. Given that co-owner Tu Le was featured on an episode of Chopped Canada last year, it’s no surprise that the food is tasty and thoughtfully prepared. Their gravy is rich, hardy and flavourful, and they stay true to the origins of the dish by using cheese curds. The more adventurous might want to double down by pairing this with their Quebecker burger, which uses poutine as the sandwich’s main topping.

5. Jack’s Drive-In jacksdrivein.ca

A Spruce Grove landmark dating back nearly 60 years, Jack’s Drive-In matches Tim Hortons in drive-thru-line insanity. In fact, by 2 p.m. you can expect to see vehicles snaking well out onto the adjacent frontage road. This is a sign of success, and poutine is part of the equation. Jack’s version opts for shredded cheese, and while that doesn’t follow the traditional canon, it makes for a respectable and resolutely messy version. In the (unlikely) chance you’ve never heard about Jack’s multi-flavoured softserve ice cream, you’ll want to make sure you leave with some of that, too.

6. La Poutine

la-poutine.com Looking to step outside the chain shop experience? La Poutine, located in Edmonton since 2011, is the place to go for traditional poutine, as well as inspired versions you won’t find other places. We settled in for a creation that subs in chili, sour cream and chopped green onions. Simple, scrumptious and reminiscent of “Texas Fries.” Come here if you’re craving the unexpected.

7. MyFries Poutine myfries.ca

This eatery is so in love with potatoes, that’s all they serve. But where they differ is with their in-house recipe that promises crispy baked fries without all the bloating. And on top of that, they have a thousand variations on how to serve those spuds, especially poutine. You can pick from the basics that include the house gravy, butter chicken sauce or the joint’s unique green peppercorn sauce. Choose from an assortment of toppings from barbecue pork to roast beef or even homemade chili. Or add a slew of condiments that include sauteed mushrooms, carmelized onions, green peppers or even salsa, sour cream, guacamole and much more.

10310 – 45 Ave NW, Edmonton, Alberta (780) 250-1110 vaticanoyeg.com

8. Smoke’s Poutine

smokespoutinerie.com Located on the University of Alberta campus, this poutine shack is a favourite with the post-secondary crowd that’s always packing the place for its variations on the Quebecois delicacy. That said, Smoke’s is willing to experiment by adding other ethnic components with unique additions to the dish like perogies, jerk chicken, butter chicken and a whole lot more. Fries are cooked crispy with nary a soggy hint of texture with every bite. Smoke’s classic chicken gravy also contains a hint of rosemary for that extra zest and those curds are meticulously prepared according to strict specifications. For noncarnivore types, veggie options are also available. n

Top 8 Things to Do Just Outside Edmonton Get out of the city and spend the day at one of these nearby hangouts By Lisa Szabo

L

ooking for a quick getaway? These eight spots are less than two hours from the city and are the perfect way for families, friends, or solo fun-seekers to explore what nearby cities and towns have to offer. Walk with dinosaurs, shoot some spuds, or laze on the beach—just make sure you pack a snack for the drive home.

1. Hang with dinosaurs at Jurassic Forest 23210 Township Road 564 #2 Gibbons, AB Travel back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Set in an old-growth forest

32

summercity.ca

North of Gibbons, Jurassic Forest is home to life-sized dinosaur replicas, interactive displays, and other prehistoric activities for families. Identify the remains of one of the forest’s previous dwellers, or search for clues in a scavenger hunt.

2. Look for wildlife at Elk Island National Park 54401 Range Road 203 Fort Saskatchewan, AB Spend the day bird or animal watching, kayaking, or hiking in this natural wildlife refuge. As an important sanctuary for bison, 300 species of

mammals, birds and fish, Elk Island is a nature-lover’s paradise.

3. Spend the day at Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm 56311 Lily Lake Road Bon Accord, AB With a corn maze, garden centre, farm animals, tractor and wagon rides, haunted farm house and more, a trip to Prairie Gardens is worth the drive. Take the kids to the Outpost General Store for a free mini face painting, and stroll through the forest trail.

4. Go country at Leduc Black Gold Rodeo Leduc, AB May 31–June 3

The Leduc Black Gold Rodeo and Exhibition is a home-grown good time for couples, families, or friends. Ride the midway rides, watch world-class rodeo performers, and kick the dust up at the rodeo dance.

5. Get lost in the Edmonton Corn Maze Spruce Grove, AB Not just for autumn, the Edmonton Corn Maze opens for summer visitors July 26. Along with the classic maze—grown in a new shape every year—the Corn Maze has farm animals, giant jumping pillows, pedal cars, spud guns and a ton of games. A great summer destination with something for everyone.

6. Soak up the sun at Sylvan Lake Sylvan Lake, AB Enjoy a day at the beach, just an hour and a half south

of Edmonton. Park your towel on the grass and soak in some rays before grabbing an ice cream cone from one of Sylvan’s famous parlours. Then float around the lake or try the Aqua Splash.

7. Experience the Ukrainian Cultural Village Hwy 16 E Tofield, AB See history brought to life at this living history museum. Learn about Ukrainian immigration to Alberta as told by costumed interpreters, and see how it has impacted our province’s cultural landscape. Check out the Village’s summer programs or group tours.

8. Canoe down the North Saskatchewan Devon, AB Grab a friend or two, some snacks and a canoe, and paddle down Edmonton’s winding river. Book with a service like Canoeheads, and catch a ride from Wilfred Laurier Park to Devon Bridge before making your way downstream. n

ADVENTURE

T

THE STURGEON

BY KAYAK Experiencing a wilder, wetter side of St. Albert By Markwell Lyon

he Sturgeon River has provided many different things throughout the central Alberta region’s history, from food and water to transportation, habitation and recreation. These days, a growing appreciation of the local waterway’s ecological importance and understated beauty is drawing many folks from the Edmonton area and surrounding communities back to the water. And there are so many ways to enjoy that water now, too, including by kayak. These ancient, low-impact watercraft are not only fun and easy to use, but also provide an entirely new perspective of our home by the river.

Close to Water There’s no preamble, no safety lessons or even a kayaking 101 lecture. Within a few minutes of showing up at the boat launch in Riel Park, I’m on the water in a 12-foot, 50-lb. kayak, as if I’ve been doing this sort of thing for years. (I haven’t.) Not that there’s much need for formalities —unlike many other recreational activities, kayaking really is as easy as it looks. The distinctive boat sits low in the water, giving it greater stability than a typical canoe. Manoeuvrable and quick, it responds very well, even for the novice, darting forward with just a few strokes and (almost) stopping on a dime. It’s a comfortable ride, too—braces inside the seating area, including a backrest and footrests, make for easy, low-impact exploration. The Sturgeon River is also a great venue for the first-time kayaker. According to Sean Demidovich of Active Recreational Rentals, the Sturgeon is a big draw for many of his customers, especially through the spring and early summer. A popular route for many clients is to float downstream from Riel Park to downtown or even further.

46

On this mid-July morning, however, weeds are already choking much of the sluggish river. Instead of heading off for a jaunt through town, for a few minutes I simply try out the area around the boat launch, getting a feel for the water. Unlike other modes of aquatic travel, kayaks really put you in touch with the thing you’re moving through—you feel you’re in the water, as much as you’re on it. I stop for a moment to watch the dark head of a muskrat bobbing past as it crosses from one bank to the other. Then I turn the kayak upstream and make my way to more open water. summercity.ca

Birds of a Feather Another advantage of kayaks, at least as far as the soloist is concerned, is the paddle. The distinctive spoon blades at either end allow for more strokes and a rhythmic pace, as the kayaker isn’t constantly switching the paddle from one side of the boat to the other. This means kayaks tend to “track” (i.e. move in a straight line) more easily than other watercraft. While canoes don’t necessarily require more skill to paddle, the fact is even a beginner like myself can feel (and look) pretty masterful in a kayak. Though there’s no current to fight against, I take my time as one of the river’s greatest draws soon reveals itself. The riverbanks and in the shallows of Big Lake are home to a great diversity of birds. I spot three dowitchers, plump birds on stick-like legs that poke for invertebrates in the mud with their long, sensitive beaks. As I coast toward them, the wary birds swim off into the denseness of the rushes. Meanwhile, a male red-winged blackbird flies back and forth across the river, perching on the tall rushes on either side. While the females tend to stay out of sight, the males are gregarious attention-getters, with the plumage to match: glossy black all over with bright, orange-red shoulder patches that flutter beautifully when the bird is in flight. Black terns are another recognizable species, spotted more easily for their distinctive hunting behaviour than their grey-to-dark colouring. Like dragonflies, they hover over the water and frequently dart at the surface when they spot a soon-to-be unfortunate bug or fish. They’re also known for aggressively defending their nests by dive-bombing anyone who wanders too close, to the point that the nearby boardwalk had to be shut down at one point.

A Big Lake In many ways, a kayak is the perfect way to explore the nooks and crannies of the Sturgeon and the lake it flows through. Those slow-moving waters offer little resistance, allowing paddlers to explore at their leisure. Compared to other watercraft, especially the motorized variety, kayaks have less of an impact on the environment. As self-powered vehicles, they don’t leak gas or oil into water and their lower speeds in shallow waters don’t cause erosion to shorelines.


On the other hand, any vehicle (and the human presence that accompanies it) causes at least some disruption to fragile ecosystems. The fact that kayaks can go places other vehicles can’t—like uncomfortably close to nesting areas— places the onus on the user to enjoy this environment responsibly. It’s one good reason why Alberta Parks has considered enacting a total boat ban for Big Lake as part of the draft management plan for the provincial park that surrounds it. Such a ban would be disappointing to some boaters, but it would be understandable. The lake, the centrepiece of Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park, is known for its wetlands habitat, an ecosystem valued

for its ability to absorb and purify large amounts of water, process carbon and inorganic nutrients, stabilize shorelines, and provide food and homes to a wide range of plants and animals, especially birds. Wetlands are considered the most biologically diverse of ecosystems, and at Big Lake it’s easy to see why. Up to 237 bird species have been recorded there, with around 180 reportedly using the site annually. Due to this diversity of life, and the importance of the provincial park in conserving the wetlands, Big Lake is recognized globally as an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA), a listing developed by BirdLife International to recognize important bird habitats around the world.

Back Again After two hours of paddling, with the water refracting the midday sun and a blanket of heat hazing the surroundings, it’s time to head back to Riel. Like other journeys, things look different on the return. On the horizon, new subdivisions are going up as a fast-growing city, by necessity, swallows up the open spaces around it. One wonders how we’ll experience this and other natural places in the future, and if we’ll be able to balance a newfound appreciation with the competing demands of development, recreation, and conservation. n

ADVENTURE

Where There’s S’mores,

There’s Fire A rite of summer on the Prairies, the classic campfire lights the way to a glorious evening By Markwell Lyon, Photography By Brenda Lakeman

A

nyone who’s sat around a campfire as twilight turns to night knows how easy it is to lose one’s thoughts in a flicker of flame. After all, there’s something about a blazing fire that takes us away from the world and its worries, to a place in our minds that’s primeval and mysterious. Perhaps fire fascinates us because it’s a study in opposites—one moment, it’s dangerous and the next moment, it’s a source of comfort. Whatever it is, those flames have been casting its spell for a very long time. Philosophical musings aside, most can agree that few things set the mood for an evening of relaxing companionship like a hearty fire. Whether you’re at a campground, cabin, or just chilling around your backyard fire pit, a crackling fire is a perfect way to wind down your summer days. It all starts with some firewood and a sturdy axe. Make sure you leave a few thick, slow-burning logs to toss on as the fire starts to dim. Just don’t forget the marshmallows, once you’ve got a decent fire happening.

Building a Campfire 101 The ingredients of a campfire are simple: heat, oxygen, and fuel. The heat is easily supplied with a lighter or matches, and the oxygen is all around you, so that leaves the fuel. You’ll need three types: tinder, kindling, and chopped firewood. The tinder should be easy to ignite—paper, leaves, even

48

summercity.ca

lint will do. Make a loose pile that can breathe easily, then build your kindling around it. Kindling consists of smaller pieces of wood like sticks, branches, or wood chips. These will catch fire easily, but burn longer than tinder. Next, light the tinder in several places, and fan or blow on it to supply more oxygen. As the flames grow and the kindling catches, start feeding it with firewood— carefully, and with smaller pieces first, until the fire’s well on its way. Kick back and enjoy your night by firelight.

Where to Get Firewood For the occasional fire builder, it’s easy to buy firewood in the Edmonton area, where many stores, supermarkets, and service stations sell it in bags and boxes. A bundle of wood is typically 0.75 cubic feet, roughly containing up to nine pieces and selling for less than $10. Depending on how big or how long-burning you want your fire to be, five to ten bundles should do for an evening’s fire. Like most things, buying in greater quantities is more economical, and if you’re planning on a lot of fires this summer, bigger might be better. Also available at many stores are composite logs. Made from sawdust and wood waste cut into log shapes, these products are arguably a greener alternative, as they burn longer and more efficiently than firewood, and give off less carbon monoxide. A six-pack of three-hour logs typically costs between $15 and $25.


Firepit Rules and Regs

UPSCALE YOUR S’MORES

When the fire’s good and roaring, the natural inclination is to bring out the smokies, the traditional main course of many fireside feasts. And you can’t forget a kiddie favorite like the s’more, consisting of two graham crackers, one golden oozing marshmallow and one chunk of chocolate.

In Edmonton, the Community Standards Bylaw regulates fire pit usage. According to this bylaw, fire pits must be installed a minimum of three metres from buildings, property lines, and anything that can burn. They should be less than 0.6 metres high and a metre wide, and they should have enclosed sides and a mesh screen with openings no larger than 1.25 cm. Care should be taken to minimize the amount of smoke a fire creates, and, as elsewhere, fire bans must be respected. For fuel, only use charcoal or clean, dry wood (in other words, no pallet fires in your backyards please). For more info, check the City of Edmonton website or one that’s pertinent to your municipality or county. n

But adults might want to tinker with the s’mores formula to suit more mature tastes. So it doesn’t hurt to experiment with dark or flavoured chocolate, substitute oatcakes or cookies for the graham crackers, or dunk your creation in a salted-caramel sauce. You’re only limited by the number of marshmallows left in the bag. Here’s a recipe to get you started.

“GOURMET” CHERRY CHOCOLATE S’MORES 1 artisanal marshmallow (because we’re being fancy here)

2 butter cookies (but not shortbread, which will crumble) 1 square cherry-flavoured chocolate (the really expensive kind) 1 tbsp cherry preserves (that’s jam) Toast marshmallow over an open flame. Top one cookie with chocolate, artisanal toasted marshmallow, cherry preserves, and the remaining reserved cookie. Eat.

AN ANGLER’S

PARADISE Fishing in Alberta

By Robert Michon, Photography By Brenda Lakeman

D

espite being landlocked, Alberta has a lot to offer when it comes to sport fishing. There are over 600 freshwater lakes in this province and about 250 rivers, each with its own unique joys and challenges for anglers. And these days, there’s a lot more to a fishing trip than spending long days alone with your thoughts. It can also be the perfect reason to travel this beautiful province of ours, making memories with friends and family and learning new skills as you go. And, of course, few things are more satisfying than catching your own dinner. Thanks to the help of the Internet, it has never been easier to learn the ropes, find the best spots and learn how to be a responsible fisher. Here’s where we started. Take a look. The laws and regulations surrounding sport fishing in Alberta are numerous, but the basics are simple. If you’re between the ages of 16 and 65, the first things you’ll need before getting out on the water are a Wildlife Identification Number and a fishing licence. You can purchase these online or at participating retail locations, such as Canadian Tire. Each

50

summercity.ca

body of water has its own season, as well as its own limits on which fish you can keep and how many, so before you head out, familiarize yourself with the specific rules that govern your destination. Although you can go fishing just about anywhere that fish are found, some locations make for better fishing trips than others. Here are a few regional favourites. Pigeon Lake • Friendly to campers, families and pets • One of the best destinations for catching Walleye in Alberta (Special Walleye Licence required to keep catches) Wabaman Lake • A catch-and-release lake, perfect for those who love to fish but aren’t interested in the cooking part of the process Calm waters ideal for introducing kids to the sport • Camping and boat rentals nearby • Home to Pike, Yellow Perch and Whitefish

Lac la Biche • Beautiful island campground that allows you quick and easy access to the water • Home to Perch, Whitefish and Burbot Bow River (Calgary) • Provides a challenge for those wishing to improve their skills • Top fly-fishing destination in Alberta • Home to many varieties of Trout Athabasca River • Camping friendly • Ideal for shore-side fishing • Home to Burbot, Goldeye and Northern Pike If you’re new to fishing, it may seem like there are a lot of fishing regulations that might detract from the fun of the sport. But not only are these regulations easy to follow, once you get a handle on them, you’ll appreciate that they serve an important purpose. Alberta’s 600 lakes and 250 rivers are a precious resource that needs to be guarded so that residents can enjoy the sport for generations to come. Respect for the waters, respect for the fish populations and respect for the

Summer Pet Advice

How you can get your puss, pooch or other loving animal adjusted for the season I

f the weather forecasts are to be believed, it’s gonna be a hot one this year and we might find occasions when the mercury could rise higher than usual. Taking care of yourself is one thing, but your pets have a different level of maintenance worth considering. Here are a few tips to keep them healthy and happy this summer. ● Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it’s hot or humid outdoors. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun, be careful not to over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it’s extremely hot. ● Know the symptoms of overheating in pets, which include excessive panting or difficulty breathing,

increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor or even collapse. Symptoms can also include seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomit along with an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees. ● Do not leave pets unsupervised around water. Consider a life vest and rinse your pets off after swimming to remove chlorine or salt from their fur. Avoid allowing pets from drinking treated or salt water. ● Feel free to trim longer hair on your dog, but never shave your dog: The layers of dogs’ coats protect them from overheating and sunburn. Brushing cats more often than usual can prevent problems caused by excessive heat. And be sure that any sunscreen or

insect repellent product you use on your pets is labeled specifically for use on animals. ● Asphalt gets extremely hot, if you can walk on it barefoot, it is not safe for your pets to walk or lie on. Being so close to the ground, your pooch’s body can heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn. Keep walks during these times to a minimum. ● Commonly used rodenticides and lawn and garden insecticides can be harmful to cats and dogs if ingested, so keep them out of reach. Keep citronella candles, tiki torch products and insect coils of out pets’ reach as well. n Courtesy ASPCA

Which is why we put the works of abstract landscape painter Samantha Williams-Chapelsky, a two-time recipient of the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts to the test. The result? A contrast of art and fashion that passes with flying colours.
