MORRIN COUNCIL

Dr. Bob Graham resigns as Village of Morrin councillor

J. Webster

ECA Review

After confirming with Chief

Adminstrative Officer (CAO) Annette

Plachner that it was public knowledge,

Mayor Howard Helton announced to

the gallery of four at the May 23

Special Meeting that Coun. Bob

Graham had resigned from his position

as councillor for the Village of

Morrin.

No reason was given in his letter of

resignation to the Village.

Helton then went on to apologize for

the mistake he made in allowing the

discussions and negotiations of the

retirement/severance issue to be discussed

in an open meeting until

council had reached some consensus

on the issue.

“Closed session, as this is a personnel

issue, is the appropriate place

for this activity,” he stated.

Council voted to rescind the resolution

passed at the May 15 council

meeting with regard to polling the village

residents for input on the issue.

Council then moved into a closed

session for 10 minutes before reconvening

back into the open meeting

where council motioned to seek legal

advice before proceeding further with

retirement/severance discussions with

CAO Plachner.

Church property

Mayor Helton informed council at

the May 15 regular council meeting

that the Morrin United Church Board

was decommissioning the Church as of

May 26; the date of the last service.

The Church Board must determine

the disposition of the building with

options of putting it up for sale, or possibly

turning it over to an organization

such as a senior’s group or Museum

Society.

“There’s all kinds of possibilities if

someone wants to do that,” said M’Liss

adding, “I would like to see the Village

acquire it and then see what it could be

used for.”

“We would need to know what the

cost of running it involves,” said Coun.

Graham prompting council to ask for

further information.

Other business

Public Works Foreman Dave Benci

provided information regarding sidewalk

lifts, the one by the hall and by

the church being the most serious,

would cost about $1,700 to $2,000.

There’s actually 12 spots but not as

serious.

Council tabled the item until a comprehensive

list containing the priority

of each fix and costs be provided to

council for budgeting.

The demolition company has agreed

to repair the damage done to the sidewalk

when demolishing the

burned-out remains of the County

building.

A great deal of time at the threehour

meeting was back and forth on

conduct and procedure issues, meeting

structure, and Municipal Affairs Act

(MGA) regulations.

Battle River-Crowfoot progressive conservative nominee Damien Kurek visited Stettler on

May 23 for a day of door knocking followed by a town meeting in the Stettler Recreation

Centre. Kurek, a Consort, alta. native, has currently visited upwards of 25 communities

within a few weeks of campaigning, accumulating over 100 volunteers in the process. The

theme of good governing policy and respect were found throughout his presentation.

HANNA COUNCIL

Pool lining replacement

Eileen Morrill

ECA Review

Director of Community

Services, Gwen Snell reported

at the May 14 regular town

council meeting that the main

pool liner has been repaired

and everything is on schedule

for the pool opening, May 18.

Snell noted all three pool

liners are nearing the end of

their life expectancy and the

estimated cost for relining the

three pools is $224,000.

Coun. Kyle Olsen asked about

pesticide spraying and whether

that could be done in-house to

save money.

Administration said by contracting

this service out it is

done professionally and everything

is on GPS, keeping an

accurate record of chemicals

used.

Snell stated that “Volunteers

are working with staff,” said

Snell, “and planning for Class of

Champions judging for

Communities in Bloom”.

Judges will arrive on Sun.

July 14.

The meet and greet with

council, Hanna in Bloom members

and Hanna administration

will be held the following day.

Endeavour locked into

auditing contract

A motion to have Endeavour

Chartered Professional

Accountants contracted to conduct

the Town of Hanna Audit

for an additional three years

passed unanimously.

The Town has contracted

with Endeavour for more than

20 years.

Endeavour is a local firm that

is familiar with the Town

accounting systems, computer

systems and staff and has provided

sufficient audit services.

With the completion of the

2018 fiscal year audit, administration

requested a three-year

proposal from Endeavor to provide

audit services for 2019, 2020

and 2021.

The proposal received from

Endeavor is based on the same

fee structure as for the services

for 2015 with 2020 and 2021

fiscal year services indexed to

the rate of inflation in the

Province of Alberta, which is

anticipated to be minimal.

Student Exchange seeking

host families

Administration reported only

one family has sent in an application

to be a host family for the

Japanese Student Exchange

Program but at least two families

are required for the

program to move forward.

“The town has always struggled

to find the necessary

homestay families and if there

are no additional families committed

by an extended deadline

of May 31, 2019 the town will

need to inform the Town of

Wake that the program cannot

proceed this year,” said CAO

Neill.

Administration noted that

there is a requirement for a

minimum of two families who

would be able to host the entire

12-day period, although it certainly

would be more beneficial

if more families came on board

to lessen the time requirement.

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Live council meeting

broadcast questioned

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Reeve Larry Clarke brought forward

the use of live broadcasts of their

council meetings after a resident asked

about its validity on Wed. May 8.

With recent media articles, he was

asked if it was pertinent to have the

media, such as newspapers and radio,

have a seat in council chambers to witness

and report on meetings.

He opened the table to conversation

if they would like to stop having media

present at meetings by having their

communications specialist send out

press releases instead to mitigate confusion

or misinformation.

Along with this, the validity of using

Youtube as a form of communication

and bridging that gap between council

and residents was questioned as the

Town of Stettler and local school board

have voiced they will not pursue live

streaming of meetings based on the

County’s experience with it.

Currently, the county bolsters

between 19 and 25 viewers at any given

time throughout the stream, however,

the first quarter of 2019 showed an

average of 320 views per council

meeting.

“So people are watching and listening

and getting their information

from going to our Stettler County

Youtube site and watching their government

in action,” said Niki

Thorsteinsson, director of

communications.

They began streaming since August

2017 and have since accumulated 5,500

views.

Council agreed to direct the policy

committee to review the policy rather

than make a resolution at this time.

A survey will also be posted on their

website to better understand the public’s

feeling on having access to this

service.

Reeve Clark did encourage the

public to sit in on meetings as they are

always open.

Coun. Ernie Gendre felt the live

streaming opened the door to employee

abuse.

“There was some I would say misquoted,

some words that should not be

stated to public officials, so on that

behalf I look at it – we are exposing our

employees, employers to some abuse

around here,” said Gendre.

“I don’t think that is what is causing

it. It happens on a regular basis. We

had that well before we ever had that

[livestream]. Now they are on social

media and abusing people rather than

on the front counter,” said Coun.

James Nibourg.

“I’m in favour of keeping it. The

town and the school board can do what

they want. I think it’s open and transparent.

I was one of those individuals

that were taken out of context and like

a duck, it washes off my back. This is

part of the deal that we signed up for.”

Coun. Cheri Neitz felt the access to

the videos could open the county up to

litigation if, for example, a councillor

were to say something they shouldn’t

have.

EDITORIAL

Who got the money?

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

A report recently published in the

Canadian Medical Association

Journal reported food insecurity has

increased significantly in Nunavut

communities.

The content of this report was based

on Statistics Canada data collected

from over 3,000 households in 10

Nunavut communities from 2007 to

2016. Food costs in the north are three

to four times higher than those in the

south primarily because of transportation

costs and virtually no

competition.


It is nonsensical to

think cash handouts (or tax

cuts) to profiteers, with

limited competition, is

going to trickle down to

families at the bottom of

the economic pyramid

Voodoo Economics.

In 2011, the Stephen Harper government

introduced the Nutrition North

Canada program which changed the

way citizens in northern fly-in communities

were given help to access

affordable food.

As a neo-liberal, trickle-down,

supply-side economics disciple, Harper

replaced the Food Mail Program,

which subsidized transportation costs,

and directly subsidized the southern

suppliers and northern retailers. He

argued at the time, the competitive

marketplace would lead retailers to

pass on the full subsidy to consumers

in the north.

When this policy change was introduced

in 2011, I wrote a column

predicting costs would go up as would

food insecurity. Regretfully for the

people of the north and taxpayers who

fund the program, that’s exactly what

has happened.

Before 2011, 33 per cent of families in

Nunavut suffered food insecurity, one

year after Harper’s market-driven program,

39 per cent and by 2014, when

OPINION

the program was fully implemented, 46

per cent of households suffered food

insecurity.

Prices, of course, didn’t go down

because there was no real competition.

A couple of local grocery stores thousands

of kilometres away from the

nearest large-scale retail competition

is not competition—it’s a monopoly

ripe for predatory pricing.

In the meantime, as Nunavut households

continue to struggle to feed their

families, taxpayer subsidies to these

corporate handout programs grew

from $60 million in 2011 to $99 million

in 2018.

So who got the money? Corporations,

of course.

It’s just another example, among

thousands, that shows how supplyside

economics is actually a tool to

trickle-up wealth and consolidate

market power amongst a few powerful

men.

Eighty per cent of Canada’s food

industry is owned and controlled by

just five multi-national corporations.

Canadian ownership includes those

multi-billionaire families - Weston,

McCain and Jim Pattison whose

wealth increased at staggering rates

since supply-side economic policies

took over politician’s common sense

in the 1970s.

Unfortunately for every working,

under-employed or unemployed

worker this explains why economic

gains worldwide over the last 30 years

have created great chasms of income

inequality, unsustainable personal

debt and stagnant wages while CEO’s

and financiers (the one per cent) reap

huge gains.

American President, Ronald Reagan

and British Prime Minister Margaret

Thatcher were the grandparents of

neo-liberal, trickle-down, supply-side

economics, later described by

President George H. Bush as ‘voodoo’

economics--restructuring the markets

to serve those at the top.

President Bush was just speaking

common sense to his citizens. It is nonsensical

to think cash handouts (or tax

cuts) to profiteers, with limited competition,

is going to trickle down to

families at the bottom of the economic

pyramid. With the smallest application

of common sense, it should not be a

surprise that the neo-liberal Canada

North Nutrition program saw a 65 per

cent increase in subsidies to corporations

and a corresponding 13 per cent

decrease in food security.

PRAIRIEVIEW

Adapt to climate change

by Herman Schwenk

The President of our Battle River/

Crowfoot Electoral District

Association [EDA] sends us updates by

email on the various issues that the

Conservative Party of Canada [CPC] is

dealing with. I got one on Wed. May 15

that was criticizing the Liberal

Government on a climate change

motion they wanted to pass.

According to the Liberals, drastic

action must be taken now to save the

world from human-caused climate

change.

The Conservative response is that

the Liberals do not have a climate

change plan, what they

have is a tax plan.

The Conservatives say

they have a plan that will

be released in one of their

policy statements. It will

be a comprehensive plan

to reduce C02 emissions

without a carbon tax,

however, they do agree

that human activity is

Schwenk

contributing to climate

change.

What we have here is the pot calling

the kettle black.

As I stated in my last column, the

Conservatives have an excellent opportunity

here to really set themselves

apart from the rest of the crowd especially

in Canada on climate change

and demonstrate some real honesty to

the Canadian public.

They know very well that climate

change is natural and reducing carbon

emissions will not change anything.

So for the life of me, I cannot understand

what they hope to gain by

continuing to beat this dead horse. If it

is the conservation of carbon products

that they are concerned about why not

come out and say so?

The environmentalists, Trudeau

Liberals, et cetera, keep talking about

reducing pollution and they say it in a

way that would make you think that

the pollution is C02.

The world could grow a lot more food

if the C02 concentration were two to

three times what it is now. Modern science

has been able to drastically

reduce the pollution from the consumption

of coal and oil fuels in the

first world counties but that is not the

case in countries like China and India.

Those countries, especially China,

have a serious pollution problem from

burning huge quantities of coal with

old technology. That pollution has no

bearing on climate change.

To listen to the critics you would

think that Canada could solve China’s

pollution problem by burning less of

our oil.

Have you noticed that the proponents

of human-caused climate change

never mention the serious mess that is

occurring in China?

They don’t mention this in their propaganda

because if the general

public were to understand that

China, producing 25 per cent of

world C02 emissions, is the real

cause of increased C02 emissions,

the public in Canada may realize

that they are being had.

In the May 16, 2019 edition of

the Edmonton Sun columnist

Lorrie Goldstein wrote a column

to reassure everyone that the

world will not come to an end as

the United Nations

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate

Change report alleged.

What they were really saying was

that the climate would warm up more

than 1.5 Celsius above pre-industrial

levels.

He goes on to say that if what climate

scientists are telling us is true we are

already on the way to catastrophic climate

change.

Which climate scientists was he

writing about? Environmental scientists

try to convince us that climate

change is caused by man and metrological

scientists know it is natural.

Common sense will tell you the only

way to overcome the negative effects of

climate change is to develop strategies

for adapting to the effects of climate

change.

I think the powers that be are beginning

to realize that regardless of the

cause, it will be necessary to adapt.

The money being wasted on

reducing C02 emissions could go a long

way toward financing ways to adapt to

the change.

You can’t change the climate but you

can change the way you deal with it!

STETTLER TOWN COUNCIL

Budget passed with two per cent tax increase

Cont’d from Pg 4

Albeit, the temperature was a little

cool, but I’ll take cool any day over the

packed gymnasium where a person

felt like they were in an oven and well

done before the two to three hour ceremony

was over.

The most complaints heard this

year was the graduates entering in the

dark and they and their parents

exiting in the dark.

This “shutting out the lights” fad

has to end.

At least at the

big performances

such as the

Canadian Finals

Rodeo, when they

shut out the lights,

they have three or

four spotlights following

the person

entering the ring.

Here, there

were no spotlights,

only dark.

Very disappointing

for those

ECA Review

Terri Huxley

Following discussion regarding various

economic factors within the 2019

Operating Budget and numerous

average municipal property tax class

options, a total Operating Budget of

$19,154,675 and an average municipal

property tax class increase of two per

cent for residential and non-residential

was created.

Many of the councillors were in

agreeance that the budget was not only

legible for residents but open in terms

of sensitivity.

“Not only is it thorough and clear

and understandable, it’s transparent,”

said Coun. Malcolm Fischer.

“Anybody can pick up this document

up thanks to our excellent

administration.”

Updated non-tax revenue and

expenditure forecasting from the previously

approved 2019 Interim

Operating Budget has resulted in an

increase of $32,232 being available for

this year’s capital budget.

With town council’s approval of a

two per cent property tax increase in

both classes, the amount estimated as

available for capital (from operating)

in 2019 will increase to $1,076,350

from $1,044,118, a increase of $32,232.

The Seniors Housing Support will

get a boost of $16,915, the library an

additional $8,458, the joint landfill at

$17,856, Board of Trade at $34,610, and

the Heartland Youth Centre an additional

$10,000 in funding.

Flat water rate remains at $10 per

month but the water rate has increased

one cent, the sewer rate increased $0.25

from $22.25 to $22.50, the garbage rate

increase of $0.25 from $23.25 to $23.50,

and recycling rate increase of $0.25

from $6.25 to $6.50.

Overall Assessment values for 2019

assessment purposes increased by

$3,726,790 (0.48 per cent) over 2018

including $4,769,760 (0.62 per cent) due

to new construction/linear growth

and property assessment decreased in

market value of 0.14 per cent

($1,042,970).

In considering the fair, equitable and

transparent treatment of properties in

both tax classes, a base split municipal

tax rate is calculated and then utilized

to ensure that the cumulative amount

of municipal taxes collected from preexisting

properties in each property

tax class is the same amount as was

collected in the previous year.

Following this, Council’s desired and

approved tax rate change(s) for each

class are independently applied and a

new split tax rate is calculated for each

class.

In this way, council has achieved a

relatively accurate outcome from each

property tax class without any municipal

tax burden shifting between

classes due to assessment valuation

variations.

The 2019 Interim Operating Budget

previously authorized a two per cent

tax increase for municipal purposes

from both tax classes with the school

and housing authority estimated tax

impacts being extra.


Many of the councillors

were in agreeance that the

budget was not only legible

for residents but open in

terms of sensitivity.

Since then the actual 2019 housing

requisitions has been received.

Due to the Provincial Election on

April 16, the Provincial Alberta School

Foundation Fund (ASFF) payment has

not been finalized by the Province.

Administration has estimated the

ASFF payment to increase by four per

cent based on prior year’s summaries.

Drive through coming to you

KFC Stettler has applied for a development

permit to demolish the former

grocery cart, the complete wrap and

renovation of the building including a

new drive through as well as the redesign

of the site including a new access

from 48 Avenue.

The application expressed a desire to

permanently close the access on to

Highway 12 which is a follow-up condition

to Alberta Transportations

requirement.

There are currently parking curbs

in place to block access.

By recognizing this condition to

close the access off, administration

created a plan for future sidewalk connections

 from the intersection of

Highway 12 and 56 West towards Dairy

Queen.

Please turn up the lights

who wanted to see the beautiful

dresses, tuxedos, the faces of those

graduating and the parents.

Even the spotlights on the stage created

dark shadows on the faces of the

grads so please turn up the lights!

Kudos to those who worked on

making sure the sound was clear. I

was given to understand that last year

that was not the case.

Congratulations to all the graduates

in east central Alberta as each of you

embark on a ‘new beginning’.

A condition of the development

permit will be to replace/install standard

sidewalk and curb and gutter

from the Highway 12 and Highway 56

Intersection to the northwest property

line with an estimated cost of $15,000.

A $5,000 economic development

incentive for the new northerly 25

council.

Stettler RCMP report

Stettler Detachment Staff Sgt. Phil

Penny came to council with updates

on municipal and provincial RCMP

statistics.

Police visibility by working with

commercial vehicles, bylaw enforcement

and the Big Valley train has

been a target.

They have chosen to conduct one

shift showing presence each while the

popular tourist attraction arrives in

Big Valley which has been noted as

welcoming and beneficial from

residents.

As an internal requirement, they

are focusing on mental health by

ensuring members are not burnt out.

K-Division has demanded each

detachment conduct at least two community

engagement sessions per year

which Stettler’s has already doubled.

“We’ve had good success getting prolific

offenders in jail as of late,”

continued Penny.

About half of their supervised persons

have done well with their

restrictions directed by the crown

while some breached their probation

quite extensively, pushing three back

into remand for further help.

Overall reduction in property crime

was reportedly down 40 per cent, all

“driven by people are listening and

paying attention”.

One request by Mayor Sean Nolls

asked if there would be any way to get

bike patrols back on the streets to limit

property crime but Sgt. Penny said the

detachment is already stretched thin

with computer work and simply lack of

time.

In 2018, the Stettler detachment lost

waiting on one new member to fill

their roster as they are waiting for

their house to sell in another

community.

“The way staffing works is really

interesting where we are almost like

an NHL trading game,” said Sgt.

Penny. “So if I give Nova Scotia my 10

years experience member, I get three

of your recruiters for the next year. It’s

a bit of a trade that way.”

Council passed a motion to acknowledge

the RCMP multi-year financial

plan.

6 M ay 30'19 Ha NNa /CORONa TION/STETTLER, a B. ECa REVIEW

Property complaints citizen driven

Jody Pettigrew

ECA Review

Residents of Forestburg will be

required to continue making formal

complaints regarding unsightly properties

following the defeat of a motion

to have administration enforce the

bylaws at the Town of Forestburg

council’s regular meeting on Thurs.

May 16.

In 2016, administration was directed

to not enforce bylaws unless a written

complaint was received from a

resident.

There have been concerns that some

properties are becoming unsightly or

hazardous and that issues are not

being dealt with in a timely manner.

Coun. Elaine Fossen moved to

rescind this directive which would

allow administration to act on bylaw

infractions, even if they are only noted

by staff.

Forestburg celebrates its Centennial

this summer and many would like the

community to look inviting to all those

who will be visiting.

Utility Rates Bylaw amended

After three readings, council

approved to rescind the Utility Rates

Bylaw in an effort to ensure that

utility expenses are fully cost-recovered

within utility rates.

In the previous budget, council

determined that no change would

occur within the utility rates because

the potential losses seen by water and

sewer would be covered by garbage

rates.

After further review, administration

determined that the budget

needed to be increased for maintenance,

frozen water lines and to

increase the sewer reserves, which

were very low.

Council believes that the cost of providing

utilities should be covered fully

by the utility user and should not be

subsidized by property taxes.

Amended rates in the new bylaw are

as follows: water rates will remain the

same but sewer usage rate, $0.65 per

cubic meter and $7.50 monthly fee, up

from $5.50, garbage monthly rate will

increase to $35.80 from $32.50, and

$16.25 for additional living units

within a property.

Commercial properties who contract

directly with Flagstaff Regional

Solid Waste Management will not be

charged a monthly rate.

There will also be a $100 connection/disconnection

fee charged when it

is requested by a property owner for

non-payment of utility charges.

Drones regulated

Village administration researched a

request made by a resident concerned

with inappropriate use of drones

equipped with cameras as they wanted

to know if any bylaws would be put

into place by the village to combat this.

It was found that drones are regulated

by Transport Canada, therefore

the village has no authority to place

any bylaws outside of federal regulations

and as such the ability of the

Bylaw Enforcement Officer would be

limited in this regard.

Current regulations concerning

drones can be found on the Transport

Canada website.

Campground reservations

Deputy Mayor Coutts requested that

council discuss having someone to

take reservations for the two campgrounds

in Forestburg.

“I think we could lose crews

working in the area because we don’t

offer this service [reservations] and it

is not good when we have special

events in our community,” said Coutts.

FORESTBURG COUNCIL

“I’m not saying the office needs to

take bookings, but possibly we could

hire someone and they could get a

commission on any bookings they do?”

Administration will be looking for

proposals for someone to handle reservations

and will be researching the

cost of supplying WiFi to all of the

campsites as a way to attract more long

term campers.

Marketing Plan

Council was in favour of a motion

made by Deputy Mayor Coutts to invite

local real estate agents to make a proposal

to sell the upcoming 13 lots in the

new subdivision on the west side of the

village.

Each lot will be under $100,000 and

development will continue throughout

the summer.

Donation request denied

Village council denied a request

from Forestburg Power Sports

Association 1/8 Mile Club for $2,500.

The funding was to sponsor five feet

of track in their effort to develop a first

class racing facility located at the old

airport.

Administration was concerned as

the village already contributes to the

Power Sports Association by allowing

the group to utilize the land at no cost,

covering the cost of building and liability

insurance for the facility and

providing a grant equal to the amount

of revenue received for haying the land

every summer.

Street closed for

swim meet in June

A request was received from the

Forestburg Aquanauts Swim Team to

temporarily close the road in front of

the swimming pool from June 21 to

June 22 for their annual swim meet.

The request was approved by council

so the village will set up bleachers and

provide barricades for the event.

Council approved an operating grant

for the Forestburg Swimming Pool

Society in the amount of $59,990 as per

the 2019 budget.

Classroom bottle money to

help the Stettler community

recreation track project

Submitted

Ms. Erin Prehn’s Grade 6 class at

Stettler Elementary School donated

their classroom bottle money of $100 to

help support the community recreation

track project.

The class often discusses being

leaders and contributing positively to

their school, community, province and

globe and considering they often use

the track for physical education, Terry

Fox Runs and track meets, they

wanted to support the project.

With a renewed track surface,

Stettler will be able to once again host

track and field tournaments, including

the opportunity to bring in people that

may be interested in living in Stettler

and the great surrounding

communities.

Members of the communities and

students will be able to maintain a

healthy and well lifestyle on a highquality

rubberized running and

walking surface for over the next

twenty years, if not longer.

Student’s emotional well-being made a priority

Cont’d from Pg 2

Like Clearview, CARS makes student’s

emotional well-being a priority,

recognizing that skills for dealing with

stress and improved well-being contribute

to improved academic skills

and success upon graduation.

Approximately 100 students from

across Clearview (and guests from

Wetaskiwin and area schools) attended

our first ever Headstrong Young

Mental Health Summit.

Student and school representatives

from Stettler, Big Valley, Erskine,

Donalda, Gus Wetter, Brownfield,

Coronation, Byemoor and Stettler

Outreach attended the day long conference

at the Stettler Recreation

Centre HUB.

HEADSTRONG is an evidence-based

anti-stigma initiative created by the

Mental Health Commission of Canada

(MHCC).

It inspires youth ages 12-18 to Be

Brave, Reach Out and Speak Up about

mental health.

Now a national initiative,

HEADSTRONG teaches students how

to reduce stigma and become mental

Game-raising gadgets

and golf balls for 2019

One of the great things about

golf is the perennial unveiling of

exciting new technologies,

allowing golfers to continually

raise their game and knock a

couple of strokes off their scorecards.

This year is no exception.

Here are some of the new gadgets

and equipment you’re likely to

encounter on the links this

season.

New golf balls

Golf balls may look simple but,

in reality, the little white spheres

are technological marvels. Take

the new Chrome Soft balls

from Callaway, which use

Nobel Prize technology to

improve driver distance and

short-game spin. These balls feature

graphene nanoparticles in

the outer core. (Graphene was

discovered only in 2004 and is

the thinnest and strongest compound

known to man.)

Then there’s the forthcoming

Genius Ball, made by OnCore

(launching this Father’s Day).

This is a golf ball equipped with

a tiny microchip that pairs with

the users mobile phone and

plans to use when they returned to

their school.

Many students returned to their

schools, and took on mental health

projects, such as Wellness

Symposiums, introduction to mindfulness,

and anti-stigma campaigns.

Classroom technology current

Clearview is replacing 500

Chromebook devices from their current

inventory.

These devices

are scheduled to

replace part of

the inventory of

1,300 chromebooks

purchased

in August 2015.

Also,

Clearview will

be proceeding

with the renewal

of all network

switches.

This equipment

which was purchased

approximately eight years ago is now

at end of life.

Projected spring budget for 2019-20

In preparation for the June 30 deadline,

provides them with a bunch of

useful data in real time,

including distance, ball velocity,

spin rate and amount of draw or

fade. It also has GPS, allowing

you to instantly locate your ball,

whether it’s been hooked, sliced

or flat-out ripped into the bush.

New rangefinders

It used to be only PGA tour

players who could get precise

yardages to the flag while out on

the course. Now, with rangefinders,

the average golfer can

enjoy this same advantage. There

are two types of rangefinders:

laser and GPS.

Laser rangefinders measure

engaged in budget conversations with

division leaders, school leaders, and

trustees since February to review

opportunities and strategic initiatives

for the 2019-20 school year that will

best support student success.

To move forward with the planning

for 2019-20, the Board would would

like to increase supports for students

through increased Family School

Liaison Workers supports, increase

inclusive supports allocations to

schools, support schools and school

leaders through establishing a division

principal position and increase supports

for professional learning that

will support all staff.

Also to provide a fund for staff wellness,

services and facility services.

distances with laser beams

users manually aim at targets

while looking through

a view port, whereas GPS

rangefinders come pre-programmed

with all the yardages

golfers need (yards to the pin, to

bunkers, to water), provided that

the course they’re playing has

been mapped.

The latest big stride in rangefinder

tec h nology came with the

Bushnell Hybrid, launched last

year. This is the first rangefinder

that integrates both laser and

GPS into one LCD screen. The

Hybrid provides extremely precise

yardages and comes

pre-loaded with 36,000 courses

spanning 30 countries.

If you’re looking to get a leg up

on your golf buddies this season,

there are a number of other

advancements in golf equipment

worthy of attention

(check out, for instance, the

formidable Taylormade M3

driver or the “spikeless” golf

shoes models from Footjoy,

Callaway and Adidas). Drop into

your pro shop or local golf shop to

KNEEHILL COUNTY

Request denied for Carbon waterline extension

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Following a funding request from

the Village of Carbon, Kneehill County

council declined the request for

$280,000 in funding to fix the east

campground water line and Carbon

Swimming Pool.

Mayor Bryan Peever and Deputy

Mayor Kelly Garrett came to council

seeking the funding in the hopes of

“much needed repairs”.

“Unfortunately we have discovered a

number of issues of financial impact to

the Village of Carbon,” said Mayor

Peever.

The first and most concerning to the

pair was the east village campground

water supply as it is no longer a viable

method of supplying fresh drinking

water.

In order to solve this problem, a new

fresh water line is required.

It will be installed from their new

ball diamond across Highway 836 and

directly drilled to the existing campground

infrastructure.

Fire pits, picnic tables, gravel, fence

replacement from flooding earlier this

year and more make up an estimated

cost of $200,000 as well as repairs to the

Village’s swimming pool at $80,000.

“Years of neglect leaves the pool

unusable for the 2019 season. The pool

liner will require extensive repair and

resurfacing,” said Garrett.

“Both projects have a real impact on

the village of Carbon citizens and the

many Kneehill County residents that

come and use our facilities each year,”

she said.

Council ultimately declined the

request but directed administration to

review policies on outside party

funding requests.

Churchill Rural Water System

rehabilitation scope

A Kneehill County resident sent a

letter to council expressing desire to

connect to the Churchill Water System

that runs throughout the county.

The current project to rehabilitate

the rural water system provides limited

new construction of waterlines.

The project mainly addresses the

operational issues with the current

system as it is and includes the construction

of a reservoir and pump

house, the addition of a bulk water station,

waterlines re-sized/re-aligned

and a couple of kilometres of new

waterline.

All current users will be required to

have flow control and pressure regulation

installed as part of the project,

which will be performed by County

personnel.

Some current users connected to a

current waterline that is to be re-sized

or re-aligned will have their service

line disconnected and then reconnected

to this new waterline.

The operational issues that are being

addressed through this project are the

lack of storage capacity within the

system, an engineered solution to

providing consistent flow and pressure

throughout the water system, protection

from limited water supply to

residents, and prolonging the life of

infrastructure.

No development or residences were

specifically selected to receive water,

however, limited new construction was

added because it was felt that the area

was within the core of the current

system.

The water lines are being placed to

better service an already serviced

area.

This project is not the same as our

recent water projects when water lines

were constructed throughout an entire

area and all residences within this

area were required to have a riser

installed on their property line.

The system will be rehabilitated to

the point that Kneehill County will be

able to accept new users based on the

current policies.

14 M ay 30'19 Ha NNa /CORONa TION/STETTLER, a B. ECa REVIEW

Old survey showed lack of interest

Cont’d from Pg 12

The pump house and reservoir

will be constructed to

allow some expansion to the

Churchill Water System

without altering the current

system.

With the infrastructure

being put in place through

this project, future expansion

of water lines should be

possible with minor

upgrades, depending on the

scope off those expansions.

It could be proposed that

the Churchill water system

is expanded over time by

adding new water lines to

new areas each year.

Council received the

report of the Churchill

Rural Water Rehabilitation

Project, and confirms the

scope of the project as originally

approved, to address

operational issues with the

current system.

A high level estimate of

installing a waterline could

be stated as $50/meter or

$50,000 per kilometre but it

was mentioned that this

estimate is just for discussion

purposes as many

variables would come into

play depending on pipe size,

topography, soils, possible

infrastructure additions

like valves.

A survey was completed

by Kneehill County several

years ago asking if landowners

would be interested

in receiving water if it was

possible.

It is administration’s

understanding that the

survey was sent to all landowners

whether a residence

was present on the quarter

or not.

The results of the survey

suggested that a small

majority was not interested.

The survey results were

presented to the Council of

the time and received as

information.

Fire engine approved

A replacement fire engine

is expected to join the

County’s fleet after council

approved vehicle funding at

the regular meeting.

The money will come

from the Capital

Replacement Funds to purchase

a replacement Fire

Engine in 2019, with the

remaining funds to come

from the Capital Equipment

Reserve in the 2019 Budget.

A deposit of 10 per cent at

$52,000 was required ahead

of schedule plus the chassis

payment at $150,000.

Making this purchase

now rather than next year

allowed the new fire chief to

review their fleet and provide

further input for next

year’s truck replacement as

the Acme engine and

Torrington tanker are due

in 2020.

“Purchasing a fourth

truck the same year as the

other three engines will

allow four engines to have

similar builds and ease of operations

between them,” said Debra Grosfield

in her recommendation to council.

Horseshoe Canyon Master Plan

The Horseshoe Canyon Master Plan

includes concepts for improving and

developing Horseshoe Canyon to

create new experiences and recreation

opportunities, supporting Kneehill

County tourism and economic

development.

Council was not committed to developing

the full plan, only select

concepts as recommended by

administration.

Council adopted the Horseshoe

Canyon Masterplan in principle and

directed administration to bring forward

select strategies from the plan

for 2020 budget deliberations.

Looking to lower your grain

conditioning costs and

increase efficiencies?

Team Alberta is seeking farmers interested in participating in a three-year

study to assess the on-farm energy consumption and efficiency of grain

conditioning systems. The goal is to assess various systems, particularly

19054AA1

heated air drying, in-bin natural air drying (NAD) and in-bin NAD with

supplemental heat; however, Team Alberta would like to hear from all

farmers with any system that may be interested in participating.

What is in it for you?

By allowing us to (anonymously) monitor your grain conditioning energy

use, you will get expert advice on how to improve your efficiencies and

reduce the costs on your farm.

Plus, you will help us devise policies, programs and advocacy strategies

to reduce the cost burden associated with grain conditioning in Alberta.

Learn more and volunteer by calling 403-219-6263 or visit

any of the Team Alberta crop commission websites.

albertabarley.com albertacanola.com

albertapulse.com albertawheat.com

Team Alberta represents a working collaboration between four of Alberta’s crop commissions:

Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission.

We work together with the aim to provide input to policy makers, ensure long-term access to markets,

promote the sustainability of the crop sector, and advocate on behalf of farmers while enabling

grass-roots advocacy by our farmer members themselves.

Standard lease

approved by Bashaw

council for seed plant

Cont’d from Pg 17

Council directed administration

to come up with

some ideas between themselves,

public works and the

beautification committee.

Setting the ground rules

CAO Fuller introduced a

standard lease for the new

Bashaw Seed Cleaning

Co-op Association.

One of it’s highlights

includes an amount equivalent

to $1,000 per year in

rental fees.

To ensure the ground’s

stability remain intact,

Coun. Lynn Schultz asked

to have a clause surrounding

the responsibility

of maintaining it and

making it suitable for any

structure such as a

grain bin.

Councillors noted

that this rental cost

seemed rather low

compared to other

leases.

CAO Fuller mentioned

that this lease

is meant to last only a

short time period of

approximately two

years while other

leases are set for 25

years or more.

“The length of the term is

quite a bit different like the

telecommunications tower,

they are looking at 25 plus

years or even after that. It

all depends on the condition

of the tower whereas this is

basically two years until

they basically build up a

profitable business so they

can purchase the ground,”

said CAO Fuller.

“And $1,000 is pretty

much in alignment with

what many of the leases I’ve

reviewed,” she added.

Council approved the

lease as amended with the

change to add the responsibility

of storage and ground

stabilization.

ECA Review/Submitted

‘Battle flag’ for Museum on Wheels

Cont’d from Pg 3

“That’s the unfortunate

thing, not as many people

go on there and watch it and

find the true facts – the

meaning behind what we

are saying,” said Neitz.

Due to the consistent

number of viewers, Coun.

Nibourg felt the broadcast

has been positive to keeping

the public engaged.

He also mentioned there

are risks to being in this

position but are always open

to conversation.

“We make the odd mistake,

you know we are all

human and it happens and if

they take little bits and

pieces, the people that know

you are not going to care one

way or the other. They are

going to know the real truth.

To me, that’s what matters.

“We don’t need to be

scared of the public. We

don’t. I honestly think if

you’re voting against having

this public broadcast you’re

scared of the public,” said

Nibourg.

Coun. Neitz added that

she has been told that some

delegations that attend

council are quite intimidated

by the camera.

“I don’t want to deter

people to come and talk to

us,” said Neitz.

Thorsteinsson brought up

some history on the matter

as to how council originally

arrived at this decision by

mentioning that the public

would often accuse them of

having ‘backdoor deals or

pre-conceived ideas’ before

they reached the table.

“Over five years, we have

cultivated a whole different

culture here with being very

open and being very transparent

and while it has

raised some issues like

sometimes taking bits and

pieces, it also solved a lot of

issues that we have to

remember,” she said.

“Recent changes to the

Municipal Government

Action (MGA) have cultivated

more public

participation, not less. They

want more access to their

government. They want

more access to their elected

officials so I really feel

taking this away is a step

backwards, not steps

forward.”

Annual road use

agreement

North Star Trucking

owner and county ratepayer

Dallas Pybus came to

council with some questions

and possible solutions to the

parameters of annual road

use agreements.

The current road use

agreement is set at five loads

per day but, as Pybus mentioned

in his delegation, an

average base load is around

six to ten.

With the demand to finish

work quickly, follow the

rules set in the agreement

and make a living, he found

this to be a bit of a “double

standard”, especially compared

to other companies

who are known for not following

the agreement.

He said that nearly 80 per

cent of his business is now

made up of farmer related

jobs and 20 per cent oilfield

work so not much notice is

received before a job is

asked to be done.

“We get 24 hour notice on

a basement,” said Pybus.

Pybus was in contact

with administration and

peace officers before

approaching council with

his concerns.

He requested a blanket

road use agreement to limit

red tape and still abide by

the agreement.

Rick Green, director of

engineering and public

works, was concerned with

how well the pavement

would hold up with constant

traffic as it needs time to

readjust, thus the current

five loads was put in place.

After discussion, council,

administration and Pybus

came up with the idea of

possibly implementing an

incentive program to give

local and outside companies

the chance to prove

themselves.

There was also talk of

having a meeting at the

beginning of the year to set

a bond and give notice of

upcoming projects.

This way, the bond would go to the

company rather than per job, building

good rapport.

Council accepted the presentation

as information.

Battle flag sponsorship

Malcolm Bisset requested $650 in

funding to produce a 4’x8’ colour rendition

of a battle flag which will

become part of the ‘Museum on

Wheels’ display.

Council chose to sponsor the sign

through the Rural Development Fund.

This display honours the 14th

Canadian Army Tank Regiment,

many of whom called Stettler and

Central Alberta home.

The display is an airstream trailer

which inside highlights each of the soldiers

who served and the battles they

fought.

The battle flag sign will be in the

back of the truck which pulls the airstream

trailer.

Only 14 Albertans have had

the privilege of becoming the

Alberta legislative

speaker with Olds-

MLA Nathan Cooper

now being one of them.

At the swearing-in

ceremony on May 21,

Cooper was determined

as the speaker, being the

youngest since 1936 by

his fellow MLAs.

Cooper was first

elected as an MLA on

May 5, 2015 and again on April

The Speaker’s

role is to maintain

the Chamber, and

to ensure that members

The 39-year-old mentioned

his grandmother as an inspiration

to him during his success.

She grew up in a remote area

of Newfoundland where “she

had to walk across ice blocks to

get to school” and was a nurses

aid by the time she was

13-years-old.

“She’s just so brave and courageous

The sale agreements do not
