Michigan woman dead for six years found only after money runs out (Reuters) For six years the bills were paid, the grass was cut and no one noticed the body of the dead woman sitting in the back seat of a car in a garage of a residential Pontiac, Michigan neighborhood. Her mummified body was finally found this week by someone dispatched to check on the property that fell into foreclosure after the money ran out of her account and the mortgage payments stopped, police said on Friday. “It is kind of the perfect storm for a mysterious set of circumstance and a challenge because of the extreme degradation of the body,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a telephone interview. The woman has not yet been positively identified, but it is thought she is a person who stopped working in 2008 and had set up all of her

bills to be paid automatically from her bank account. She is also thought to have worked as a contractor in the financial department for a major automobile company. A neighbor cut her lawn, her mail was sent to the post office and there was no family living nearby, Bouchard said. “The last withdrawal from her account was in March 2013,” he added. Neighbors said the woman had family in Germany and would be gone for days or weeks at a time. When she was back home, she kept to herself, local broadcaster WXYZ reported. “Nobody came over there to check on the lady. It’s weird. And it’s actually scary,” a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous told the local TV station. A cause of death was under investigation. (Reporting by Jon Herskovitz, editing by G Crosse)

THINGS THAT IT TOOK ME 50 YEARS TO LEARN = Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. = If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings.” = There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “obsession.” = People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. = And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle. = You should not confuse your career with your life. = Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. = Never lick a steak knife. = Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie. = The most powerful force in the universe is gossip. = You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time. = You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment. = There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven. = The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers. = The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them. = A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. = Your friends love you anyway.

Golf Truths O A golf gift given to you at Christmas by a non-golfer is always unsuitable. O A vacuum is the space between your ears that becomes entirely void of matter once you set foot on the course. O After 36 holes in broiling heat, there are never any clean towels for a shower. And the bar has just closed. O Your natural ability as a golfer is in inverse proportion to the amount of money you spend on new equipment. O Bunkers have the unnerving habit of rushing out to meet your ball. O Coincidentally the only remaining set of clubs in the professional’s shop was made especially for you. O If a golfer wishes to give you a blow-by-blow account of his round, ask him to start with his final putt on the 18th green. O The love of your life either hates golf or is a better player than you. O Whenever you take your clubs on holiday, you leave your game behind. O Your first hole-in-one is always achieved when playing alone.

The Peace Sign Origin: The gesture of two fingers spread and raised in peace, popularized in the 1960’s, is a physical interpretation of the peace symbol. It is thought to have begun in Europe during World War II, symbolizing “V for Victory.”. When it is drawn as an inverted or upside down “Y” within a circle, it signifies the combination of the maritime semaphore signals for N and D which stood for “Nuclear Disarmament.” It was adopted as the badge representing the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in Britain, and originally, its use was confined to supporters of that organization. It was later generalized to become an icon of the 1960s anti-war movement, and was also adopted by the counterculture of the time. It was designed and completed February 21, 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a commercial designer and artist in Britain.

Hi Everyone:  A  couple  of  significant  topics  this  past  week:  the  2014  Budget  and  the  Saskatchewan  Municipal  Infrastructure Conference we hosted in Kindersley.  This  year,  to  conduct  the  normal  course  of  business,  which  includes  infrastructure  maintenance  and  replenishing reserves, all we have recommended was to keep inflation at 2%. The last inflation rate we  saw was 2.3%. However, we have to make some key investments:   Fire Hall ‐ $500,000 for both 2014 and 2015   Regional Landfill Site ‐ $400,000 for both 2014 and 2015   West Central Community Centre ‐ ~$350,000  Council will be meeting over lunch on the 24th to review this information and its impact on our pocket  books.  As  I  look  forward,  we  need  to  make  timely  investments.  It  is  good  we  take  for  granted  many  services  such  as  water,  sewer,  garbage,  and  fire  suppression.  However,  we  also  need  to  make  those  investments that contribute to our quality of life.   As  I  write  this  week’s  column,  we  are  hosting  the  2nd  Annual  Saskatchewan  Municipal  Infrastructure  Conference  at  the  Kindersley  Inn.  The  conference  sold  out  and  we  have  200  municipal  leaders  from  around the province in attendance.  Guest  speakers,  including  our  own  MLA  Bill  Boyd,  Minister  of  Economy,  and  MLA  Jim  Reiter,  our  neighbouring  MLA  and  Minister  of  Government  Relations.  Also  speaking  are  experts  in  the  various  private  sector  fields  needed  for  the  healthy  development  of  a  community,  discussing  everything  from  waste water to curbs to recreation facilities. Here are the titles of some of the sessions held:    

Growing Linkages of Strategic Infrastructure  Making Informed Decisions in Prioritizing Financial Investment  Effectively Navigating the Political Decision Making Process, Taxpayers Concerns, and  Community Priorities   Asset Management – Progress, Integration, and Lessons Learned after 3 years (Shellbrook)   Building Resilient Communities   Economic Advantage of Good Municipal Planning   Municipal Infrastructure: How to Pay for It?   Navigating project Agreements and Project Finance   P3s for All and P3 Risk Management  I  have  received  many  positive  comments  about  the  conference  and  I  want  to  thank  Vickie  Newmeyer  and  her  team  at  Meridian  Community  Futures,  our  staff  at  the  Town  Office,  and  SEDA  for  their  hard  work.  Please  write  or  phone  if  you  would  like  me  to  discuss  a  particular  topic.  If  you  have  any  questions  or  comments,  drop  me  a  line  at  the  town  office  or  email  me  at  mayorenns‐  You  can  also check out my blog at I appreciate your feedback.    

A REAL FRIEND A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps herself. A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears. A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book. A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean. A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call. A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems. A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight. A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you!

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary. As she laid her beloved pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, “I’m so sorry, your pet has passed away. “The distressed owner wailed, “Are you sure?” “How can you be so sure,” she protested. “I mean, you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.” The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few moments later with a black Labrador retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog and took it out and returned a few moments later with a beautiful cat. The cat jumped up on the table and also sniffed the bird from its beak to its tail and back again. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly, jumped down and strolled out of the room.The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.” Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!” she cried. “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead?!” The vet shrugged. “I’m sorry. If you’d taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20. But with the Lab Report and the CAT scan, well it all adds up.”

THE LITTLE THINGS As you might know, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten. Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. One woman was late because her alarm clock didn’t go off in time. One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident. One of them missed his bus. One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change. One’s car wouldn’t start. One went back to answer the telephone. One had a child that dawdled and didn’t get ready as soon as he should have. One couldn’t get a taxi. The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today. Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone... all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.. Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can’t seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don’t get mad or frustrated; God is at work watching over you. May you be continually blessed with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.

1. A clock chimes 5 times in 4 seconds. How many times will it chime in 10 seconds? 2. A dozen Royals gathered round, Entertained by two who clowned. Each King there had servants ten, Though none of them were also men. The lowest servant sometimes might, Defeat the King in a fair fight. A weapon stout, a priceless jewel, The beat of life, a farmer’s tool. What are we talking about here folks? 3. A grandfather clock chimes the appropriate number of times to indicate the hour, as well as chiming once at each quarter hour.

Highlights from the April 14, 2014 Regular Meeting of Council: Council observed a moment of silence to honour the public service commitment of the Honourable James Flaherty, the late Minister of Finance who passed away suddenly last week. Reps of AECOM and Associated Engineering attended the Council meeting to present a detailed update on Kindersley’s Infrastructure Capacity Assessment Study. The study outlines the current condition and capacity of Kindersley’s infrastructure, including water, sanitary and storm sewer pipes, the lagoon, and water treatment facility. It is one of several major plans underway as part of the Kindersley Growth Plan. Council proclaimed May 12-18, 2014 as Bicycle Safety Week in support of the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute. Cyclists are encouraged to wear helmets and practice bicycle safety.

The next regular meeting of Council is on Mon. April 28 at 6:00 pm Regular meetings are held every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, unless otherwise scheduled

The month of May 2014 was proclaimed as MS Awareness Month in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Council agreed to pursue all necessary legal action to re-assume ownership of residential land in Rosedale as a result of the Purchaser’s failure to commence construction within the time period designated in the Option to Purchase agreements. The

land – 45 lots in Phase 7, Stages 2 & 3; and a separate 4.65 acre parcel – are to be re-acquired for the purchase price of $5,000 and $15,000, respectively. Council authorized the Mayor and CAO to enter into a user agreement with the Kindersley Indoor Rodeo Committee to hold the 2014 Rodeo at the West Central Events Centre, May 29-June 1. Council supported the request of the Western Regional Landfill Inc. to participate in the engineering and site selection phase for the regional landfill project, and to contribute $55,000 for this phase.
