Visitors from far and wide came to

see the newly erected Michichi Creek

Boardwalk within Starland County on

Thurs. June 20.

Over 120 people came to support the

opening and eat a hot lunch. The walk

features 11 detailed educational signs

as well as a memorial gazebo with

bench seating at the base.

“I really hope the schools get out

enjoy this boardwalk. It’s so close now

that it’s a great educational tool for

everybody and tourism as well with

visitors to the area and campground.

Watershed Resiliency and Restoration


“Our overarching theme behind this

was to be an educational tool to showcase

flood and drought resiliency in

the Red Deer River watershed. So with

that we also had a large aspect of it

John Grove, municipal relations

manager at AltaLink, Sean Heffernan,

senior right-of- way planner at

AltaLink and Dr. Ramaiah Divi, lead

engineer with AESO came to council

chambers on Wed. June 19 with an

update on the Central East Transfer

Out (CETO) project and its portion

surrounding Alix.

AltaLink and ATCO Electric have

partnered together to make the project

a reality.

In January, they did their first

round of consultation with affected

landowners and through this consultation,

they proposed a number of

routes which has since been reduced

to three based on the feedback.

Landowners were concerned with

the double circuit structure that carries

six wires instead of a single circuit

monopole structure with three so the

project is focusing on the single circuit

model for now.

The Alberta Electric System

Operator (AESO), which determines

what projects are needed and develops

a 20-year future plan, has identified

that the monopole structure must be

installed by 2023 while the double

structure will not be required until

potentially 2027 if at all.

“We do have the option to address

all of it now and do all of it now. A

single circuit, in the event that the

need goes out beyond 2027, then we

would be basically doing a second new

project for that second circuit,” said

Individual landowners often give

Altalink and their decision in route

The construction and design work

did take longer than expected due to

weather issues and flooding.

Cows & Fish on getting the riparian

Grove highlighted the benefits of

having a new industrial business on

the south end of the village as it would

increase the village’s tax base.

He also encouraged everyone who is

affected to stay involved all the way to

the AUC decision as their voice will be

heard at the hearing, giving the committee

more to consider when

addressing the CETO project


“My message here is to potentially

impacted stakeholders,” said Grove.

“If you’re still impacted, stay involved

right through to the hearing. Have

your say at the public hearing and

make sure you have consulted with all

of that paperwork that is there. Let the

with the pond leveler.

“It’s a combination of a living fence

and a pond leveller to make sure we

are keeping that area backed up with

mostly in this area,” explained Kudras.

Visitors read one of the boardwalk signs at the opening on Thurs.

June 20. Each sign addresses one or more topics specific to the

area like wildlife and management. ECA Review/T.Huxley

Amanda Davis from 2052900 Alberta

Ltd. presented a commercial greenhouse

report to council at their regular

meeting on June 20.

The report examined the readiness

of attracting a commercial greenhouse

to the area.

“In general, we found that you have

the basic assets to attract commercial

investors, such as affordability and

labour force,” Davis summarized. “But

first we need to have all of the plans

and dedicated resources in place while

defining your unique assets.”

A suggestion to form a committee for

by council, as that was the intent from

the beginning, noted Mayor Howard

no quotes were provided for landscaping

for the removal of the recycling bins

and the gravel pad to the new location,

and proceed with new soil, grass seed

and fencing quotes for the next council

“The idea is to get something started

and from the outset the understanding

always has been to get participation

from clubs, interested persons, and private

persons,” explained Helton.

“We are just trying to get some

funding going so, like I say, to get some

groundwork done.”

“Apparently the landscaper was contacted,”

said Helton, “but I guess we

didn’t keep following up and making

sure they were going to come.”

The lands in this annexation are all

adjacent to the village and can be serviced

by the village’s road, water and

sewer system.

There is only one landowner, other

than the village, included in the annexation

area who has not been in contact

with administration as of yet, despite

an effort to communicate.

Council approved the annexation of

the airport lands.

With the annexation, the village will

have sufficient highway commercial

and light industrial land to accommodate

growth for the next 20 years.

Moving recycling bins

Council tabled the motion to move

the recycle bins from their current

location across from the public works

shop to east of 50th Avenue near the

indoor riding arena.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Debra Moffatt and Coun. Elaine Fossen

inspected the area and found that this

new location would work well.

Moving the recycling bins to this site

would still cost about $15,000 as they

need to add gravel and level the site.

Funds will be taken from the garbage


“I am here to tell you we use that

area for a lot of things,” said Michelle,

Hiebert, a board member of the riding

arena, “for horses to be on the grass

and when we have a large event we use

it for parking.”

Coun. Fossen replied, “There is still

a lot of space. How often do you use the


“When you have a rodeo of 50 or

more horses, we only have a small

area. We host about three rodeos in

the spring, and six will be happening

there this fall.

“Other people also use it for other

events with 25 to 50 horses at a time.

We get squished enough as it is. In

winter you fill it with snow, and then

with campers in the summer,” she


“People will want the grass there,

especially if they are tenting overnight

for a rodeo. The panels to set up for

horses also take up a lot of space and

they would need the grass,” concluded


“We can try to accommodate that

somehow but it [the recycling bins] has

to be moved,” Coun. Fossen stated.

“Maybe what we can do is clear some

of those trees if that means giving

them more space. Well, maybe we need

to sell that land then. How do we

accommodate all these things?”

Coun. Dwayne Giroux reminded

council, “We need to accommodate

because we are trying to encourage

them to use the space and now we are

limiting it. Are we dead set against putting

a nice fence around where the

recycling bins already are?”

”Many residents have came up to me

who have told me that they want it

moved.” replied Coun. Fossen.

“I am dead set against leaving it

where it is. I just think that at the back

[near the riding arena] we are not disturbing

anyone. There is a lot of space

in behind.”

“I really think it’s not a big deal,”

said Mayor Blaise Young adding that

“they deserve our consideration.”

Fossen will take a site plan to

Kuhnen Natural Area opens

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

With a wide variety of natural birds,

critters and a stellar viewpoint, the

Kuhnen Natural Area has officially

been opened for public use.

Lacombe County, the proud keepers

of the land, officially opened the area

to the public on Tues. June 18.

Located on the eastern side of the

County, the public space features 65

acres of land running along the north

side of the Red Deer River.

“The gift of this land from the

Kuhnen Family exemplifies the importance

community residents place on

managing green space for the betterment

of current and future

generations,” said Reeve Paula Law.

“We appreciate this priceless gift

from the Kuhnens, and are proud to

protect these lands, for everyone to

come out and spend time in nature.”

Local long-time residents, Frank and

Rosalie Kuhnen generously donated

this land to Lacombe County, who will

ensure the area remains in a natural

state for the public to use for passive

recreational purposes.

Kenny, “It’s

all about me”

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

Seventy per cent of Canadians support

the construction of the

TransMountain Pipeline (TMX) and

see it as an economic benefit to the

whole country. Yet listening to Premier

Jason Kenney and his $3-billion ad

campaign you’d think the opposite was


When the not-surprising approval of

the TMX was given by the federal government

on June 18, Kenney’s

statement that the pipeline approval

“isn’t a victory to celebrate” was just

weird for a Premier of a province that

will benefit the most from that federal


His attempt to

distort the facts is

showing signs that he

wants to be another

Doug Ford - uncaring

and dogmatic.

Kenney, since elected, is showing a

side of narcissism that we never witnessed

when he was a federal minister

of the Crown. Then he was seen as

moderate, cooperative with the

Opposition, respectful of immigrants,

and far less confrontational than most

of the front bench of the Harper


Today he seems focused on baiting

anger, jealousy and alienation amongst

Albertans towards fellow Canadians.

His attempt to distort the facts is

showing signs that he wants to be

another Doug Ford—uncaring and

dogmatic to the majority as he panders

to his personal and industry friends.

One gets the strong impression that

he really wants the TMX construction

to fail simply because its success would

validate the federal Liberal and provincial

NDP governments’ strategy of

diplomacy, compromise and rule of


When Preston Manning led the last

separation movement, “The West

Wants In”, he had the four Western

provinces on side. It was also before

the United States became energy

self-sufficient and a net exporter of oil

and gas.

Today we have one province in the

bag, Saskatchewan, and perhaps


Without British Columbia we would

be a landlocked country surrounded

by two foreign governments. If

Manitoba joined our country, we’d

have access to a port at Churchill, but

that would be an expensive option with

seasonal access.

Frankly, what incentive would B.C.

have to facilitate, ever, the shipment of

a breakaway country’s petroleum


Granted the breakaway of Alberta

would hurt all of Canada, but the costs

of nationhood and the added difficulty

to access foreign markets for our

petroleum and agricultural products

would crush Alberta’s strength and


It would be equivalent to what’s happening

in Britain as they line up to

crash out of the European Union

without a deal.

Every Nobel Prize winning economists,

the Governor of the Bank of

England, Canadian Mark Carney and

the Organization of Economic

Co-operation and Development (OECD)

say throwing 50 per cent of their tarifffree

trade away would hurt Europe but

would unequivocally cause catastrophic

consequences for British


The United States doesn’t need

Canada anymore. They are energy

self-sufficient. We’ve already seen the

bully of bullies, Mr. Trump, unsuccessful

or uninterested in delivering

the Keystone pipeline.

Then there’s the current protectionist

attitude of the governing

Republican Party. They have no

interest in befriending Canada or any

of their traditional allies so the hope of

them befriending Alberta is indeed a

pipe dream.

Kenney’s approach to promote separation

from Canada rather than

cooperation and his skepticism

towards the TMX construction are

incongruent with Alberta’s current

vulnerable economic situation. We

need all the friends, allies and support

we can get.

Unfortunately, herein lays the

problem with the UPC leadership. If

Kenney isn’t getting the glory, it matters

not whether it’s beneficial to the

majority of Albertans or not.

Professional on the subject

Dear Editor,

After reading the letter from George

Thatcher titled “Fact checking

needed”, I would just like to clarify

some misleading information in his

letter, specifically that Dr. Tim Ball

should not be considered an expert on


Dr. Tim Ball received a PhD in

Historical Climatology from Queen

Mary College, University of London,


He also has an extensive research

and publishing record including 23

peer-reviewed articles, co-authored

“Eighteenth Century Naturalists of

Hudson Bay” and “Slaying the Sky


He also wrote “The Deliberate

Corruption of Climate Science” and

‘Human Caused Global Warming”, two

thoroughly researched works.

He is obviously a professional on the

subject of climate, in my opinion and

that of many others. That’s my conclusion

from the facts I have researched.

Picking winners and losers

Dear Editor,

Editorial opinion of June 13, titled

Jason’s “War Room”, pg. 6 graphically

illustrates how different views are of

the left from the right.

Regarding Shell and Exxon Mobile

endorsed the leadership plan of the

NDP, it is more likely that they were

anticipating the subsidies they would

receive to convert to other sources of


This is illustrated by the fact that

they so quickly reverted back to the

free enterprise model when they realized

that under the new

administration those subsidies would

be gone

The writer finds the synchronization

of government and industry

appalling but seems to be quite in

agreement with Rachel Notley’s

administration destroying an industry

in order to comply with the political

agenda of those who want to stop the

climate from changing.

Nor was the NDP sympathetic to

100,000 workers that they put out of a


There is a vast difference in synchronization

of industry with

government than government getting

into bed with the labour unions.

Unions like the political left as they

are only interested in their next wage


They have no interest in what it

takes to build an industry that creates

their jobs.

They do not appreciate the risks

taken by industry or entrepreneurs to

create the jobs they depend on.

It is my opinion that the NDP government

has no money other than that

they first have taken from the taxpayer,

to manipulate industry and the

consumer, with subsidies and grants

The editorial talks about the greed

of the corporation versus the wellbeing

of all citizens.

This ignores the fact that corporations

are made up of citizens that hold

shares in the corporations and are the

risk takers that create the jobs for

unions and nonunion workers.

Corporations and private entrepreneurs

in Alberta have for many years

been in the forefront of developing

alternate industries outside of the oil

and gas sector.

Comparing Jason Kenney’s support

for the oil and gas industry with

Trudeau wanting to protect the SNC-

Lavalin CEOs, simply illustrates that

the political left has little sense of what

is right or wrong.

Trudeau had no problem compromising

the law to save 4,000 jobs, but

felt no guilt in destroying an industry

and killing 100,000 jobs.

Supporting corporations and private

entrepreneurs does not mean that governments

should not have the

possibility of oversight, but governments

right or left, should not use

taxpayer money to pick winners or

County working with

Larry Clarke, Reeve for the

County of Stettler and James

Nibourg, chairman of the

Municipal Planning

Paradise Shores’ representatives

earlier this week to

discuss the current project

(SDAB) decision which allows

168 RV sites, once all of the

Paradise Shores has an

appeal filed with the Court of

Appeal, on the SDAB decision of

Nov. 2, 2018 which reduced the

allowable density of their site to

168 units.

The County of Stettler issued

a Stop Order for the site in May.

The Stop Order restricts dayuse

or overnight

accommodation until the conditions

of the SDAB decision have

been met.

Both parties are working

together towards resolving the


“The developer will be notified

prior to any action being

taken in regards to the Stop

Order,” added MPC Chairman


The developer may continue

working on the site to bring the

site up to compliance.

parties involved that respectful

effective engagement.

First session continuing at great speed

by Nate Horner

MLA Drumheller-Stettler

One of our early victories was

getting an Order in Council for

a G3 Grain Loop Terminal west

of Stettler, south of Erskine.

I’m happy to see construction

is under way, it’s a great project.

The first session of Alberta’s

30th Legislature continues to

move at great speed.

We are making

progress on many

bills, having many

late nights and

starting to dig into

the work of


Currently there

are three bills

awaiting Royal

Assent; Bill 3, the Job Horner

Creation Tax Cut,

Bill 4, the Red Tape

Reduction Act and Bill 9, the

Public Sector Wage Arbitration

Deferral Act.

I’d like to share some information

on Bill 9, as it has been

much discussed by the opposition

and media and was not

campaigned on or in the UCP


Bill 9 is a postponement or

delay to public sector contract

negotiations. It is unfortunate

that this had to be done, but it

was deemed necessary by our

caucus, cabinet and Minister of


This was also the recommendation

of the top civil servants

who advise the Minister of


The Bill will simply push the

start time back for contract

negotiations four months,

everything else will be the

same, including a binding settlement

facilitated by a

third-party independent


The Blue-Ribbon

panel will have completed

the financial

deep dive into Alberta’s

fiscal state by then and

all of the pertinent

information will be on

the table.

We felt it would be

irresponsible not to do


We did not campaign

on this, but we did campaign

on returning a

balance by year four and that is

still the goal.

This is certainly not meant as

a slight to our most valued

public sector, not at all.

This government is just

trying to find a sustainable path

for Alberta and Albertans in

the public and private sector

and this will only be possible by

acknowledging and understanding

Alberta’s current

financial situation.

Update on other bills

Bill 7 The Municipal

Government Amendment Act

and Bill 10 The Alberta

Personal Income Tax

Amendment Act are currently

in third reading.

Bill 10 is kind of a housekeeping

Bill that acknowledges

Bill 2, an Act to make Alberta

Open for Business has been

widely discussed.

Bills 5 and 6 are supply Bills

both Interim and


Bill 8 and Bill 11 are in second

reading. Bill 8 is the Education

Amendment Act that we campaigned

on, Bill 11 is The Fair

Registration Practices Act.

The hope of Bill 11 is that we

have less doctors driving taxi’s,

so to speak. There isn’t much

point attracting skilled immigrants

Bill 12 has been introduced. It

is The Royalty Guarantee Act. It

first step in trying to help our

Strong enough

by Lois Perepelitz

I recently spent a

weekend with my


She is one of those who

do not have a regular cable

or direct TV, just things

like Netflix and Amazon

Prime, etc.

When I mentioned an

award winning show on

Prime that I had heard

about, she quickly found it

for me and we started

binge watching it.

The show is set in 1958

and is about an upper

middle class family.

I was really enjoying

seeing all those fabulous

fifties dresses and fashions

then I noticed that my

granddaughter had a puzzled

look on her face.

The characters were

talking about reading

their Dr. Spock book and

what it was about. I

explained at that time Dr.

Spock had been considered

the expert on child care.

She laughed because she

had been thinking that

Star Trek had not been

around then.

Then she was wondering

why the women were

always putting makeup on

and fixing their hair.

I told her that in those

days women were expected

to look their best for their

husbands at all times, even

first thing in the morning.

She said that was not

going to happen now.

I had to agree as it had

not happened for me


Then the main character

came home and

announced that she was

getting a divorce.

This made her mother

faint and ‘take to her bed’,

and my granddaughter

wanted to know what was

wrong with her.

I explained that back

then divorce was a disgrace

to the family and

women were thought to be

too ‘fragile’ to handle big

problems like that.

Society had women

thinking that they needed

a man to take care of them.

My granddaughter just

shook her head and said

they would never survive

in today’s world. She might

be right about that!

I know that there were

many single women and

single moms around in the

fifties, most were widows

and alone because of circumstances

beyond their

control, and not by their


The most common

answer to that was to get

married again.

Thank goodness now

women know they have a


They know they are

Now if they have a man

in their life it is because

they want him there, not

because they need him.

it is much nicer to be

wanted than to just be

too, because being strong

Prairie Land Regional School

Family visits, highlight of her life

Pearl Estelle Wakefield, a

dear loving wife, mother, grandmother,

great-grandmother and

great-great grandmother

passed away peacefully on June

15, 2019 at the Coronation Long

Term Care with her family by

her side.

Pearl was born in Medicine

Hat, Alta. on Sept. 26, 1919, the

third of six children in the

family of John and Rosine


John and Rosine homesteaded

in the Conquerville

area 18 miles southeast of Bow


In 1924, the family

moved to a farm

north of Magrath

where Pearl attended

the country schools

of Lehi and Farm


After completing

Grade 8, she worked

cleaning houses and

looking after children

for various Wakefield

families in the area,

many times for only $5 a month.

She met her loving husband,

Raymond of 64 years of marriage,

in Magrath while he was

working for his cousins.

After a short courtship, they

were married in Lethbridge,

Dec. 29, 1939.

They started their new life in

the Coronation-Nose Hills area

where Raymond farmed with

his brother.

During this time, two of their

children were born: Evelyn in

1941 and Vernon in 1944.

In 1948, they moved to Spring

Coulee where Raymond worked

for a farmer and oil rig while

Pearl cooked for a crew.

In 1947, baby Leslie died in

infancy and in 1948 Bonnie was


Shortly after they moved to

Magrath, two more children

were born: Robert in 1954 and

Sherri in 1958.

Ray and Pearl were happy to

welcome to their family, John

Leuck, born 1947, a 6-year-old

cousin of Ray’s.

Pearl helped with expenses by

working at the Alberta Canning

Factory, Magrath Woolen Mill

and cooking for hired men.

She was a member of the

Magrath Lutheran Ladies Aide

for many years baking many

pies and cakes.

In 1963, Ray and Pearl and the

four youngest children moved

north of

Coronation where

they took up

farming on his

Dad and Mother’s

homestead where

they farmed for

many years.

Pearl always

took great pride

in her large

garden and a

beautiful flowered

She worked at the Coronation

Auction Market lunch counter

with Lottie Lang and catered for

weddings, curling bonspiels,

and many large gatherings,

whilst running the lunch

counter at the curling rink,

where Ray was a caretaker.

In later years, Pearl enjoyed

working with Mabel Glazier

and Edna Redelback pouring

green-ware at Kee-J Ceramics.

Pearl and Ray enjoyed

meeting many friends while

touring with Jo Bargholz


Ray and Pearl

enjoyed many happy

years together, celebrating

64 years of


After Raymond

passed away on Jan. 15,

2004 Pearl continued to

live on the farm.

Robert purchased the

family farm, where she

continued to reside

until she turned 90.

She then moved into Prairie

Rose Assisted Living in October

of 2009.

With renewing old friendships

and making new, Pearl

enjoyed playing bingo, listening

to musical entertainment and

visits from family and friends.

She enjoyed being pampered

by the compassionate nursing


After suffering a slight stroke

in July of 2012, she moved into

Long Term Care.

She worked very hard to

regain her mobility with the

assistance of caring nursing

and physical therapy.

She never lost her keen mind

and witty sense of humour.

She knew how fortunate she

was and enjoyed her independence


Over the next few years, she

enjoyed every family reunion,

other celebrations and never

passed up an opportunity to go

to a casino.

Visits from her family were

the highlight of her life.

Her face always lit up when

grandchildren, great-grandchildren


great-great-grandchildren came

to visit.

Pearl was physically limited

when she fell and badly fractured

her right arm on Nov. 27,


She coped with some pain

rather than take medication

knowing it would affect her

awareness, which she kept up

until the end.

Pearl was a loving wife to

Raymond, mother of six, grandmother

of 15,

great-grandmother of 28, and

great-great-grandmother of 11.

She lived a wonderful, full life

and will be sadly missed by

everyone who knew her.

A special thank you to the

doctors and nursing staff for the

compassionate care you gave
