Stettler Trade Show had

something for everyone

Submitted

The 39th annual Stettler Regional

Board of Trade and Community

Development’s Trade Show April 12 -

14 had 2,700 visitors.

The three day show at the Stettler

Recreation Centre showcased the products

and services of over 140 exhibitors

and entertainers.

“The new Artisans Market brought

to us a variety of handcrafted and

handmade items from graphic novels

and wooden farm sets to pottery and

artwork,” said Donna Morris, project

manager.

Visitors from near and far travelled

to see what the Stettler Trade Show

and Artisans Market had to offer and

just over 2,700 people took in the show

over the weekend.

This is a slight decrease over 2018

attendance.

CORONATION COUNCIL

“Weather plays a major factor in our

show attendance. When it is nice and

sunny outside, people like to be out in

their yards and gardens and not

indoors.

“Regardless, vendors seemed to be

pleased with the results of the show

and many are excited for the prospect

of future sales as well.”

The annual Stettler Trade Show

offers one stop shopping with family

fun for a reasonable price and helps

vendors showcase their products and

services to a variety of potential

customers.

“This year’s show boasted a 56 per

cent increase in new vendors. Part of

that can be attributed to the new

Artisans Market however I think the

lower economy is playing a factor as

well and businesses want to get their

names out there,” Morris said.

Four-year-old Isaac Tymchuk, alongside Stettler Regional Firefighter Dan Atterbury, learns how

to roll up a hose during the Stettler Regional Fire Services presentation at the Stettler Trade

Show on Sat. April 13. The local department created a timed relay race to give children a better

idea of what being a firefighter is all about.

ECA Review/T.Huxley

Derelict vehicle concerns quashed after amendment

K. Scheffield

ECA Review

Keeping the Town of Coronation

clean and safe is an ongoing priority

for town council.

Council passed a motion put forth by

Coun. Jackie Brigley, at the regular

April 8 council meeting to amend the

current bylaw regarding derelict and

abandoned vehicles.

The amendment was changed from,

‘no derelict vehicles allowed in excess

of two ’, to “no” unregistered or uninsured

vehicles’.

It goes on to clarify ‘but would be

allowed stored in private buildings or

storage facilities’.

Street light replacement

ATCO Electric has notified the town

that 10 street light poles with lights are

in need of replacement.

The project will cost a total of $20,224

with ATCO paying $17,032 and the

town for the pole replacement will be

$31,192 with the work to be completed

by June 2020.

ATCO will be replacing them with 88

watt LEDs white lights compared to

the 150 watt high pressure sodium

heads which produce a yellow tinge.

Rodeo Grounds

overflow camping approved

Deryk Bossert was given approval by

council to open up the lot next to the

rodeo arena for overflow camping

during the next rodeo weekend.

Every year, there are concerns when

the public campground reaches its

maximum capacity during that time.

Bossert had suggested it would also

help ensure rodeo participants and visitors

going to the beer gardens avoid

driving or biking home after the consumption

of alcohol.

The camping space will be allowed

there during the rodeo only when the

main campground becomes full and

that those over seeing the rodeo

grounds would be responsible for the

upkeep including cleanup of that area.

There was also some discussion

about the decline in attendance during

the once popular rodeo weekend so

some suggestions were made to

encourage new spectators and

contestants.

One of the projects being tackled this

year is improvements to the grounds

including the replacement of the old

fence in exchange for a new one.

Financial Statements accepted

Endeavor Chartered Accountants

found no issues with the town’s 2019

annual audit report.

Revenue increased by three per cent

while expenses increased by 3.5 per

cent with a shortfall of $18,307 in 2018.

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

Last week I was asked to speak to a

couple of Grade 7 Language Arts

classes about my work in journalism.

It was a pleasant surprise that students

were being taught how to write opinion

pieces and news stories and learn the

difference between writing fact versus

writing opinion. Thank goodness,

alternate facts were not an option!

We talked about getting ideas and

content and the pitfalls of not doing our

due diligence to gather facts and

ensure our opinion writing was

informed and fact-based.


Interacting with

people of different

backgrounds, religions,

viewpoints and economic

status, and travel outside

the North American bubble

were also important to

keep us away from

silo thinking.

Specifically, I encouraged the students

to seek facts from published

newspaper articles, magazines, journals

and books or watch

documentaries and podcasts which

have independent oversight and rules

governing their accuracy.

For this newspaper, our check on

facts and slander is the National

NewsMedia Council.

Interacting with people of different

backgrounds, religions, viewpoints

and economic status, and travel outside

the North American bubble were

also important to keep us away from

silo thinking.

Then I emphasized the two areas

that do not shape my opinion—social

media and the opinion of others —

which include antidotal stories from

friends and acquaintances and talking

heads on radio, TV or online.


An antidotal story going around

this election season and was told to me

by a dearly loved person. She said,

“Her friend’s daughter in Lacombe had

been forced by her teacher to join a

Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA).”

My follow-up questions included.

“What did the parent do?” “Did the

principal handle the situation to her

satisfaction?” “Did she have to take it

higher up to the School Board or

Minister of Education?” Alas, this

friend-of-a-friend did not have an

answer for any of my questions.

Even though I love and admire this

person, I put absolutely no credence in

the story, nor did I pass it on to others

as fact.

When the outcome is left to our

imagination, it should set off warning

bells. I personally don’t believe there is

a principal, school board or Minister of

Education who wouldn’t have taken

this complaint seriously and acted

appropriately.

It’s human nature to accept a ‘story’

from a friend and pass it on. It is also in

our human nature to assume things

we hear over and over again are most

important, when in fact they could be a

distraction from what is truly important.

Like the teeny-tiny little bit of

time or participation that GSAs make

up in a publicly-funded school has been

blown out of proportion. Instead it

helped distract the electorate from the

real issues in Alberta schools—the

much-needed approval of the new K-4

curriculum which has significant

improvements to both math and language

arts curricula, and the

underfunding of educational assistants

and classroom teachers.

Independent thought is being eroded

when we are force-fed by mathematical

algorithms on social media or follow

the opinion of others without reading

and thinking for ourselves.

We threaten rational debate and civil

society when we pass on unverified

antidotal stories as fact.

Accepting opinions as facts or antidotal

stories as truth leaves us under

the power of someone else’s opinion

which history has shown to be very

dangerous.

Hope for the future?

by Lois Perepelitz

I think we all know someone who is

always talking about how much better

things used to be.

How things are so much more expensive

now, how young people don’t do

this or that nowadays, or families don’t

do this or that anymore.

I have found myself having

conversations like this more

often lately, but usually with

people in my own age group.

When my granddaughter

gets bored she phones

someone, usually her parents

or me. She phoned the other

day and when I mentioned

something about Easter her

reaction stunned me.

She started with families

losing family traditions, fewer

and fewer families doing things like

Easter egg hunts and decorating with

homemade decorations.

They don’t make a special day of it

with new outfits for Easter Sunday at

church and big family suppers.

The Easter basket of chocolate

goodies has to be bigger and fancier

every year.

Colouring boiled eggs and a chocolate

bunny is not good enough

anymore.

I had to keep reminding myself that

this was a 23-year-old talking.

When she started talking about the

reasons this is happening, I realized

that this girl had been doing some

heavy duty thinking about this.

She believes that families just don’t

have the time or money to do a lot of

these things.

She blames this on society.

Society has people believing that

they need the biggest and best of everything.

You need the biggest TV, the

newest cell phone, the brand name

shoes and jeans.

All this costs money so you have to

work more to get all these

things, then you have neither

the time nor the energy

to do anything so you just go

and grab whatever is the

quickest.

Stores take advantage of

this by putting up big fancy

displays that make the kids

want that so even if you have

the time to make up a nice

basket at home you don’t

because you don’t want your

child to be the only one without a big

fancy store bought basket.

She wishes people would just stop

and see that they really do not need all

that stuff, society just makes you think

you need it.

She thinks if people could just ‘see’

then maybe they would stop worrying

about what others have and bring back

some old family traditions or even

make some nice new ones.

Does this mean that young people

are starting to figure out what has real

value and what does not?

That maybe, just maybe, some of the

things their parents and even grandparents

grew up with, might have

value?

That conversation sure gave me

hope for the future.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB ApRIL 18'19 3


Intermunicipal Development Plans postponed

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The provincial government has

mandated that each municipality must

have an Intermunicipal Development

Plan (IDP) with each of their surrounding

neighbours.

County of Stettler council were presented

with two, holding a public

hearing at their regular monthly

meeting held on Wed. April 10.

No written or verbal submissions

were received so the hearing closed.

Council asked administration how

far along the municipalities of Donalda

and Big Valley were in the process.

They found Big Valley has been

transitioning as there is a new CAO so

the document has yet to be seen by

their councillors.

Council determined they would pass

only second reading so Big Valley

could get caught up before they continue

on as they may bring changes in

the future which requires further

paperwork.

Audited 2018 Financial Statement

Peggy Weinzierl of Gitzel & Company

presented the financial statements and

independent auditors report to kick

things off at the council meeting.

Council approved the 2018 audit and


COUNTY OF STETTLER

financial statement and appointed

Gitzel and Company as their auditor

for another year.

Weinzierl felt the county was in

decent financial shape. A prime

example of this was their debt limit

which they are nowhere near close to

reaching.

The Municipal Government Act

(MGA) sets a limit of $27.9 million in

which a municipality can borrow but

the County of Stettler has only $1.2

million tied up with wiggle room of

another $24 million.

“The province of Alberta probably

wishes”, joked Weinzierl.

She mentioned that the county is

mostly under budget for the majority

of their essentials but the Public Works

department still takes the most financial

support with $11.5 million, 53 per

cent of the total budget.

Of that large amount, $704,000 is put

towards gravel contracting, $1.65 million

for gravel material and almost a

million in fuel costs.

Oil supplier chosen

On March 7, the County of Stettler

received proposal quotations for the

2019 Supply and Apply Calcium

Chloride Brine (32 per cent)”.

Rick Green, Director of Engineering

and Public Works, felt Kortech

HANNA COUNCIL

Hanna financially stable

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

As required by the Municipal

Government Act, each municipality

must submit its financial information

return and the auditor’s report on the

financial information return, and its

financial statements and the auditor’s

report on the financial statements to

the Minister by May 1 of the year following

the year.

Council accepted the audit and

financial statements after a presentation

was made by Jeff Faupel with

Endeavor Chartered Accountants at

their meeting on Tues. April 9.

One of the biggest changes compared

to previous years was how the summary

and other guidelines are laid out

as their findings are now spread over

two pages instead of one.

The summary now leads the report

as well as their opinion.

Responsibilities of both parties are

outlined on the second page.

Overall, the town’s financials were

‘present fairly, in all material aspects’

according to their financial audit

opinion.

Council, under the guidance of

Faupel, went over the total revenue

and expenses.

Revenue was slightly down by

approximately $200,000 as it was

budgeted at $7.5 million while expenses

exceeded their initial expectations by

surpassing their predictions at $6.9

million to $7.5 million.

Overall user fees and taxes have

been consistent with other years but

transportation, protective services,

and wastewater treatment and disposal

made an increase to their

expenses.

They don’t budget for amortization

which was approximately $985,000.

The Town is also waiting on certain

grants that would have increased its

total revenue.

A total of $1.4 million in deferred

revenue from 2018’s budget and $1.3

million from 2017 comes from a few

important programs and grants.

The lion’s share of this came from

the Alberta Municipal Sustainability

Initiative (MSI) but the town is still

waiting on the Federal Gas Tax Fund

and the Special Areas RCSC

Recreation Advance at $141,139 and

$180,000 respectively.

The MSI is expected to go towards

town infrastructure projects while the

federal gas tax has been allocated to

certain eligible expenditures Hanna

has yet to place money.

Faupel mentioned that the town has

no real long-term debt but they have

entered a new lease for their grader.

with family and friends

Calcium Services Ltd. of Edmonton

made the most sense as “We have good

luck with Kortech.”

The lowest bidder of Camrose provided

a unit $0.210/litre while Kortech

bid slightly higher at $0.215/litre.

Typically, the lowest bidder is

chosen but in some instances it can be

different as decisions are at the mercy

of council.

Green further explained that

Kortech had changed their source or

storage material from tankers to open

pond format and the company had

issues with their distributor last year

as they were not getting the right consistency.

It has been known to be a

provincial problem.

Since they changed their operations,

Green wanted to give them a helping

hand and mentioned how he had done

his homework before thinking

Kortech was the best option.

Council agreed to stick with Kortech

at $0.215/per litre with minimum load

size or 21,000 litres, minimum application

rate of 10,000 litres/hour per spray

truck, and additional spray time $150./

hour.

As for calcium, Green has been

looking at the material as an alternative

to using oil for dust control.

Before, it was more expensive to the

county as they depended upon outside

companies to apply it but this winter

they built their own application

system to avoid this.

This year will act as a trial run for

the material in case people want to

make the switch. Green mentioned it is

environmentally friendly as it is not

corrosive or harmful to environment

as well as clearances to reassure those

who may be concerned.

One of the top concerns is making

sure the calcium work well with the

oil but if all works well, they will be

able to replace the oil with calcium as

their consistent product.

Possession for purpose of trafficking charges laid

Submitted

Drumheller RCMP were called to an

altercation on April 2 at about 9:30 p.m.

between a post office worker and suspect

illegal drugs located in a mailbox.

Multiple witnesses identified the suspect

as Chad McCann.

A warrant has been issued for his

arrest on four counts of possession for

purpose of trafficking with more

charges pending.

Drumheller RCMP seized a package

of drugs containing methamphetamine,

cocaine and fentanyl.


McCann was on court conditions to

not possess intoxicating substances

from a previous charge at the time of

this incident.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB ApRIL 18'19 5

Hardisty chosen as Gibson Energy’s operations centre

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The people of Hardisty and

area can rest easy knowing

their town will remain viable

for years to come after Gibson’s

Energy announced it will be

positioning itself in the

community.

Four municipalities including

Hardisty, Flagstaff County,

Sedgewick, and the MD of

Provost, have partnered

together to lobby the company

hard to keep jobs in the area.

Their hard work combined

with a feasibility study has paid

off as the company announced

on March 1 about its plans.

“We’re ecstatic,” began

Hardisty Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Sandy Otto,

“because their employees are a

huge catalyst in our communities.

I mean they are the ones

that lead our culture, our recreation

activities.

“They sit on our fire department

plus their families support

our community keeping our

schools viable so if we were to

all of the sudden lose 30

employees, that would be a significant

hit to not just Hardisty

but even the surrounding communities

where these people

live.”

Hardisty will be home to the

company’s control room and

operations centre while

Sedgewick will have a space for

their backup operations, totalling

$20 million.

The decision to stay and

expand has secured 30 existing

jobs and simultaneously created

40 or more positions.

The CAO views this as a huge

win for not only Hardisty and

Sedgewick but also rural

Alberta in general.

“To be known that we can

actually carry on that commercial

activity here, you know,

hopefully that kick starts

maybe some other companies

into thinking that rural Alberta

is a good place to be able to put

your corporate location,” said

Otto.

Long term benefits are

expected to stretch over the

next 40 to 50 years as this

facility solidifies itself even

more in the community.

“Administration and control

rooms can always be moved but

they are going to be investing

that kind of capital I

believe that that means

they are here for the long

term which helps us as a

community for sure,” she

said.

The sanction of 500,000

barrels of new tankage at

the Hardisty Terminal

under a long-term agreement

with an investment grade

customer will take place as well

as the closing of the divestitures

of Wholesale Propane and noncore

Environmental Services

North, and continued execution

on its infrastructure growth

projects.

“We continue to demonstrate

very strong execution on our

infrastructure growth projects,

with three new tanks totaling

1.1 million barrels at our

Hardisty Terminal as well as

public event, which

engaged community

members, staff and

entering service ahead of

schedule and in-line with

budgeted capital,” said

Steve Spaulding, President

and Chief Executive Officer

of Gibson Energy Ltd.

Long term

benefits are expected

to stretch over the next

40 to 50 years.

“In addition, the

remaining tanks currently

under construction at our

Hardisty Terminal are

ahead of schedule and we

have also sanctioned the

construction of an additional

tank, underpinned by

a long-term agreement and

consistent with our outlook

of two to four tanks per year

over the medium-term.

In mid-February 2019,

Gibson Energy successfully

placed the first phase of

development at the Top of

the Hill portion of the

Hardisty Terminal into service

ahead of schedule with

capital costs in-line with

budget.

With the three tanks from

the first phase at the Top of

the Hill adding an incremental

1.1 million barrels of

storage, the Hardisty

Terminal has reached an

aggregate storage capacity

of 10 million barrels.

The company has also

sanctioned an additional

five tanks under longterm

agreements,

comprising an incremental

2.5 million barrels

of storage, which are

expected to enter service

starting in late 2019 and

through 2020.

Construction of both

the second and third phases

at the Top of the Hill continue

to progress, and are

currently tracking ahead of

schedule.

Gibson is a Canadianbased

oil infrastructure

company with its principal

businesses consisting of the

storage, optimization, processing

and gathering of

crude oil and refined

products.

Headquartered in

Calgary, the company’s

operations are focused

around its core terminal

assets located at Hardisty

and Edmonton and also

include the Moose Jaw

Facility and an infrastructure

position in the U.S.



PRAIRIE LAND SCHOOLS

School renovations priority

Submitted

The Prairie Land Regional Division

(PRLD) Board passed a motion to

approve the 2018 to 2021 Three-year

Capital Plan and concurrently the

most pressing structural needs

throughout the division within their

facilities.

The Morrin School rebuild is top priority

as a result of the identified

structural issues that presents itself.

Altario School building envelope

and mechanical upgrade has been recognized

as the second priority as a

result of stucco cracks and failing

seals.

The Youngstown School building

envelope upgrade, and the J.C. Charyk

Hanna School roofing replacement

which originally was not included in

the recent school modernization

project has now been included.

Altario School of Agriculture

Principal Kevin VanLagen, Vice

Principal Jamie Roworth and community

member Jinel Ference presented

on the Altario School of Agriculture.

Altario School’s traditional identity

is embedded in its rich culture, academic

excellence, and spirited

athletics.

A cornerstone of the Altario School

that is embedded in all things successful

at Altario School is its

agricultural community.

Over the past months, Altario School

has been systematically and purposefully

incorporating a love for its local

agriculture into the identity of the

school.

The goal is to encourage a wide

variety of agricultural careers in graduating

students, to create an

appreciation for Altario’s historical

success and to build a future for

Altario School that symbolizes the

importance of agriculture to Altario,

Alberta, and Canada.

The Board approved a motion for the

request of $36,000 for the purchase of a

barn that is a crucial resource and

support of the School of Agriculture.

International student program

A committee of the Board consisting

of Shauna Davies, Lindsay Bond and

Marsha Tkach was created to investigate

the recruitment of International

students into PLRD.

The Board passed a motion to

approve $25,000 for the remainder of

the 2018-2019 school year for the development

of the program itself.

Audit team visited town office

Cont’d from Pg 3

They have already been leasing for

years but it is now recorded in a new

fashion under the financial statement.

Despite the dips in cash flow, an

accumulated unrestricted surplus of

$4,819,153 was obtained as well as a

restricted surplus, dedicated to projects

like the spray park, of $29,200,696.

The Endeavor audit team was in the

town office from March 4 to 6.

They met with the Chief

Administrative Officer (CAO) and

Director of Corporate Services to

review the overall documents and confirm

any changes from the previous

year.

Hanna promotional video

Brad Haugen, a new resident

to the Town of Hanna,

came to council with an

interesting proposition

regarding advertising for the

municipality.

Haugen recently moved

from Fort McMurray after

finding reasonably priced

homes in Hanna.

He had fallen for the great

location as there is ‘“no

major wind like Lethbridge,

and is a reasonable distance

to the cities”.

Although he has been

involved with the oil and gas

industry for much of his life,

he is also a musician and

voiceover talent who has

owned a recording studio

since 2007.

He used his abilities to

create a two-minute video on

the benefits of living in

Hanna, hoping it will draw

traffic and possibly land new

residents.

Council thanked Haugen

for the presentation and

praised him for his initiative.

Badminton tournament medals

by K. Smawley

The badminton team travelled

to Wainwright on April 10

for a long day at the East

Central Catholic School

Divisional Tournament.

The group had teams entered

into 12 different categories

including girls singles, boys singles,

mixed doubles, girls

doubles and boys doubles, each

within their different grade

levels.

Throughout the day, the

Theresetta students played

hard and were able to come

home with nine gold medals and

four silver medals overall.

One interesting situation

from the day saw four

Theresetta boys singles players

as the four finalists from their

category.

The category was so large it

started out with four separate

draws, with one Theresetta boy

in each.

After all four boys won their

respective pools and the following

quarter final game, the

Grade 7 boys singles final

games ended up being between

our four players.

Thayer Bunbury came out

with the gold medal in that

category.

In other results these players

won the gold medal in their

respective categories: Landon

Slemp - Grade 9 boys singles,

Ashley Renschler and Kennedy

Bagshaw - Grade 9 girls doubles,

Students in candidates forum

by K. Smawley

Students and staff at Theresetta

School, Castor are very happy to

finally be enjoying some consistent

spring weather.

The extra minutes of sunshine make

the days seem lighter and spread

positivity.

Many students have started

spending the majority of their afterschool

and weekend

time outside after

being cooped up for so

long.

Theresetta students

in Grades 5 to 9

attended the candidate’s

forum for the

Drumheller-Stettler

constituency in

Stettler on April 1 at

the Stettler

Community Center.

Students were

invited to email questions

to the organizers

ahead of the event and

some of the questions

were used during the

forum.

Three Theresetta

students, Brayden

Rowland, Kyla

Beaumont and Kolby Renschler, even

posed their own question to the candidates

during the open mic portion.

Students enjoyed the opportunity to

see the candidates that they have been

talking about in class first-hand and

hear their responses to important

issues affecting their area.

Students felt humbled to be positively

recognized by the candidates

and the audience at the event for

coming out to such an event at their

age just to be apart of the democratic

process.

Field Trip

The Grade 9 class travelled to

Wainwright on April 11 to present to

their school board trustees.

This is an annual event where all

schools in the division take turns presenting

to the board so the trustees

have the chance to hear about all the

happenings at the schools.

The class created a presentation

about Theresetta and highlighted all

the things they enjoy about their

school.

The group took on a leadership role

as they wrote, produced and presented

the entire thing themselves.

As they are the graduating class of

Theresetta, they reflected on the past

10 years at the school and shared some

favourite memories.

Cookie bingo

To end the week with a bang, the

entire school came together to play

some rounds of cookie

bingo!

This is one of the two lent

fundraisers happening at

the school this year.

Students purchased as

many cards as they wanted

with all proceeds going to

the Rainbow of Hope for

Children Organization.

Harlyn Bunbury, Leah Boxma and Hailey Rowland playing

bingo on Fri. April 12 trying to win themselves some

cookies!

ECA Review/Submitted

The students then tested

their luck in the hunt to win

a bag of freshly baked

cookies! It was a fun way to

end the day and cap off a

very busy week!

Program visitors to the

school

The Junior High girls

took a short trip to the

Evangelical Missionary

Church on April 4 to learn

about, and help out with, the

Days for Girls program that

makes reusable feminine

products for school girls in

developing countries.

The program is aimed at

helping to give girls the supplies

they need to be able to

attend school which in turn

helps them build a life for

themselves.

The Theresetta girls were

happy to hear about the program

Kathy Weber and the

other ladies volunteer to

help out with.

It’s a great cause

helping to empower

and provide opportunities

to girls around

the world.

On April 9,

FacetoFace

Ministries visited

Theresetta once

again for a fun-filled

day of worship and

spiritual reflection to

help encourage students

to develop their

individual faith

journeys.

The school enjoyed

an opening session

together where

everyone learned

about this year’s

retreat day focus,

“doing things on purpose”

before breaking up and

having grade centred sessions

throughout the day.

The school came together

at the end of the day to

reflect on the ideas that

each grade explored.

Students and teachers

always enjoy when

FacetoFace visits as the

retreat leaders, Ryan and

Daniel, are always amazing

at empowering, inspiring

and energizing everyone,

reminding us about to positively

affect our own faith

journeys.

Prairie Christian Academy Grade 11 student, Hannah Cottrill

discusses one of her art projects on display at the school’s 11th

annual Fine Arts Gala which took place on April 12 in Three Hills with

Principal Darryl Hern. Designed and delivered by a seven-member

committee of volunteers and teachers, the event involved 124

students from Grade 5 to 11, showcasing the school’s many musical

talents and art class abilities.

M.D. of Provost No. 52

2019 AGRICULTURAL SERVICE BOARD

USED RENTAL EQUIPMENT DISPOSAL TENDERS

The M.D. of Provost No. 52 is currently accepting tenders

to purchase the following units:

Norman Brown

January 12, 1940 – March 28, 2019

Norman Harvey Burnett Brown of

Castor, Ab. passed away surrounded

by loving family and friends on March

28, 2019 at the age of 79.

After a brief struggle with cancer, he

was called home to be with his Lord

and Saviour.

Norman was born to parents Anne

and Christopher on Jan. 12, 1940 in the

small village of Chipperfield, in

Hertfordshire, England.

He and his twin brother David were

the youngest of six children.

In his early life, Norman was known

as a clever and energetic boy with a

keen sense of humour.

With a hand-made bow or catapult

in hand, Norman made

good-hearted mischief his art

form throughout the English

countryside.

He attended church regularly

and was active in the boy’s

choir. He worked at his studies

and achieved good marks at the

Durrants Secondary School in

Croxley Green, Hertfordshire,

despite some childhood health

challenges.

As a young man Norman

trained as a tool and die maker, completing

his apprenticeship at the Kings

Langley Engineering Co. in 1961, the

same year he married his first wife,

Gwyneth (nee Evans) of Watford,

England.

Norman immigrated with Gwyneth

to Edmonton, Ab. in 1965 and soon

became father to three sons: Rennie,

Lee and Dale.

The natural beauty of Canada

ignited Norman’s passion for the outdoors

and inspired family trips to the

Rocky Mountains, the west coast and

Alberta’s Lakeland for summer

camping and fishing with his boys.

He enjoyed hunting, archery,

canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing and

skiing and he was active as a leader in

the Junior Forest Wardens, sharing

his enthusiasm with youth.

Norman was successful in his career

and took pride in providing for his

family.

Mid-life also brought challenges and

was, in his own words, a time when he

“turned away from the Lord.”

Norman soon came back to the Lord

and found deep love and friendship

with his beloved Carol (Henderson).

Norman met Carol on Father’s Day

golfing with his three boys.

They married the following year on

April 1, 1995.

This marked the beginning of a long

and cherished relationship with Carol

and family and a return to his country

roots.

He cherished their 25 years together,

living first in Edmonton, then Elk

Point and finally Castor.

Norman’s passions continued in his

later life.

He loved

building radiocontrolled

planes

and boats which

he flew and sailed

Police Week

with family and friends and he loved a

good game of golf.

A highly skilled craftsman, Norm

built his own sailboat, canoe and

guitar.

He and Carol drew great pleasure in

country life and being active in the

church and community.

Norm loved playing his guitar and

singing gospel music in his distinctive

baritone style.

Known as the “Jim Reeves” of the

town, he loved performing for others

and making them smile.

Above all, Norm loved his entire

family and his friends.

He is remembered as someone who

was quick to say hello to a stranger

and quick with a joke and a

smile, and equally quick to

lend a hand or help

another.

He gave his time and

gave himself in the service

of others.

Norman was predeceased

by his parents

Anne and Christopher; sisters

Elva (Tom), Vera

Brown

(Neil), Nora (Ted); brother

Jack (Jean), twin brother

David (Jean); nieces Carol

and Carolyn and his ex-wife Gwyneth.

Norman is survived by his loving

wife Carol; children Rennie Brown of

Vancouver, Lee (Laura) Brown and

Dale Brown (Jana Mohn) of Sherwood

Park, step-children Randy (Wendy)

Henderson of Botha, Dan (Merlin)

Henderson of Edmonton, Terry

(Wanda) Henderson of Frog Lake, Ron

Henderson of Edmonton, Deb (Wes)

Jones of Endiang, Michelle Henderson

of Edmonton.

Surviving Norm are his grandchildren

and great-grandchildren Alison

(Sam), Molly (Marcus), Maria, Owen,

Brianna (JD), Liam, Madison,

Gwyneth, Christopher, Ryan (Jen),

Trinity, Joshua, Jessica, Rebecca

(Michael) and their daughter

Emmalise, Courtney (Jordan), Ethan,

George and daughter Alena, Bobbi

(Jason) and their son Samuel, Wayne

Fidler and numerous extended family

and special friends.

A funeral service will be held at the

Castor Evangelical Missionary Church

in Castor, Ab. at 11 a.m. on Sat. April

20, 2019 followed by interment in the

Castor Cemetery and a celebration of

Norman’s life at the Castor

Community Hall.

When you consider distracted driving, cell phone use may

come to mind. Undoubtedly, texting is a major driving distraction

but it’s certainly not the only one. There are dozens

of common driving distractions—all of which put you at risk of

being in a car accident. They can be grouped into four major

categories.

VISUAL

These are activities in which you take your

eyes off the road. Common visual driving distractions

include reading road signs, changing

the music and turning around to deal with kids

fighting in the backseat.

MANUAL

This type of driving distraction involves taking

your hands off the wheel. Eating and smoking,

rummaging through a purse and programming

a route into a GPS can all be categorized as

forms of manual driving distractions.

COGNITIVE

These are mental factors or activities that

prevent you from properly concentrating when

behind the wheel. Cognitive driving distractions

include being in a highly emotional state,

daydreaming and having a conversation.

AUDITORY

Distractions that dominate your hearing and

prevent you from noticing traffic sounds are

labelled as auditory driving distractions. Listening

to music and talking on the phone are examples

that fall under this category.

Note that almost all driving distractions distract you in more

than one way. For example, listening to the radio at full blast

distracts both your auditory and cognitive awareness. As for

texting and driving, that’s a visual, manual and cognitive distraction

— unsurprisingly, it’s one of the leading causes of traffic

accidents today.

Distracted driving accounts for about 25 per cent of all crash

fatalities. For your safety, as well as the safety of other drivers

and pedestrians, don’t let yourself become distracted when

driving.
