Spectators took in the vast fireworks display during the Rumsey centennial celebration on Sat. July 13. The weekend was filled with laughs,

smiles and community as a large 358 person breakfast, over 600 person supper, school reunions, bouncy castles, a parade and more happened.

ECA Review/T.Huxley

Rumsey centennial fiercely celebrated

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

One hundred years have come and

gone in what feels like a blink of an eye

but much has happened since the community’s

inception in 1919.

Rumsey holds a rich history, one

that was celebrated with intense pride

over the weekend, July 12 to July 14.

Although the community never bolstered

a large population, the ones who

have stayed have created a truly

thriving community thanks to the consistent

support.

“It was an incredible weekend,”

began Rob Richmond, spokesperson

for the Rumsey centennial committee.

In total, approximately 750 people

registered for the centennial

festivities.

Friday kicked off the weekend with

the centennial campfire that had

music and food.

Saturday had the bulk of activities

starting with a large pancake

breakfast put on by the Morrin volunteer

fire department followed by the

much-anticipated parade.

Best float was awarded to Mountain

View Financial, best children’s float

went to the Rumsey-Rowley 4-H Beef

Club, best family entry went to the

Steen family, the best animal float

went to True Big Horse Hitch, the best

antique entry went to Ken and Peep

Bengert and the parade marshall’s

choice went to the Cawiezel family

with Coulee View Fab.

Submitted

For 31 years Jerri Perrin has taught

Grade 3 and 4 at Veteran School.

“I have greatly enjoyed my career,”

says Perrin. “It has been entertaining

and reward-ing to work in one community

and get to know students and their

families.”

Having taught in PLRD for over 30

years, Perrin says she has numerous

second generation students in her

classroom.

Perrin also taught elementary physical

education, something she

thoroughly enjoyed.

Darcy Meyer

After a 35 year teaching career,

Darcy Meyer is retiring from Veteran

School.

“It has been my great fortune to

have spent my en-tire career in the

Veteran community,” said Meyer.

Through the years Meyer’s main

assignment has included Junior High

Math, Science, Phys. Ed. and CTF and

occasionally he has also taught the

Grade 4-6 students.

Carolyn Unsworth

Some long term employees in PLRD

often have held a variety of positions,

sometimes in a variety of schools.

Carolyn Unsworth will be retiring

after 24 years with PLRD.

“In my 28 years in the school system

I have served many roles including

interpreter, tutor, speech assistant,

librarian, team manager, driver and

aid, but the role I enjoyed the most was

being a friend,” said Unsworth.

Donna Johnson

Every spring for the past 23 years,

you can hear the chirping of baby

birds coming from Mrs. Johnson’s

classroom.

“I’ve always loved hatching the

eggs,” smiles Mrs. J., adding over her

from chicken and duck eggs to geese

and pheasant eggs.

Carla Assenheimer

Consort School is losing a veteran

teacher, Carla Assenheimer who is

retiring after 30 years of working in

the division.

Assenheimer has spent the past 13

years teaching Grade 3. She also spent

14 years teaching Kindergarten as well

as a couple of years in Grade 1 and

Grade 1/2.

Having spent 30 years in education,

Assenheimer says she has definitely

seen things change. From the traditional

or ‘old school’ ways of pencils

and paper, chalkboards, rows of desks

and phone calls home to paperless

assignments, whiteboards flexible

seating and apps to contact parents.

While she is retiring, Assenheimer

will be at Consort School this fall covering

for a maternity leave in the

Kindergarten room.

The 21st annual Graveldome Kinsella Bullarama was a success with 30 top participants on Wed.

A barbecue beef supper

was served to 600 people and

included speeches, visiting

and the Precious Cargo

Sisters delivered some

classic 30s and 40s tunes in

the hall afterwards which

was a highlight for many

seniors who attended.

The fireworks display

rivalled that of a large city

Two benches to be located

in the Rumsey and Rowley

celebration on Sunday.

Rumsey’s centennial committee,

consisting of 15

individuals, put the event

together with over a year in

volunteer time, spearheaded

by Dariel McNaughton,

Marry Newton and Larry

Anderson.

History

Larry Anderson took the

visitors on a short journey,

back in time.

“Do you know

what happened,

in Rumsey, on

July 19, 1919, a

little more than

one hundred

years ago?

The answer is

in the Red

Rumsey History

book.

On July 19,

1919, a Monster

Peace Celebration

was organized by

the UFWA, UFA,

and the athletic

association to

commemorate the

end of World War

I, and the return

of local soldiers.

Oliver Tolman ran the

local garage, and he was

tasked with installing the

electric lights.

These dates: 1930, 1955,

1980 and 2019 may have

major significance for many

of you depending upon your

age, a celebration in

Rumsey in 1930.

In 1955, Rumsey went all

out to celebrate our provinces

golden jubilee – 50th

anniversary.

There is a series of photographs

in the “100

photographs for 100-year

display” in the curling rink

that shows many of the

floats in the parade.

The next big celebration

was held in 1980 and the

occasion was the provinces

75th anniversary.

The last date Anderson

referred to was 2019, and

this brings us to the reason

for today’s celebration.

Today’s celebration is to

commemorate the 100-year

anniversary of the establishment

of the Village of

Rumsey.

The first meeting was

held on April 22, 1919 and

Henry Heddon was chosen

as Rumsey’s first Mayor.

“Also, I believe, looking

back over the past 100 years

of our history, helps us to

understand and better tell

the story of this great community,”

concluded

Anderson in the short

journey he provided to

attendees.

ECA Review/Submitted

Special Areas first annual

Carp Cup Classic, a hit

Submitted

This past weekend, over 75 anglers

descended on Blood Indian Reservoir

to try and catch the most Prussian

carp on Sat. July 6.

The first ever Carp Cup Classic was

held at the reservoir, with cash prizes

awarded to the top three finishing

teams and individual anglers.

The event was a success, with the

winning team of Xranbo Yao, Jijun

Huang and Jinhua Chen taking first

place with 243 Prussian carp weighing

232.55 lbs.

The winning individual was Clive

Scott with 27 Prussian carp weighing

28.25 lbs.

In total, the event saw over 310 individual

Prussian carp weighing over

290 lbs. removed from the reservoir

over the 12-hour event.

Although the proceeds of the event

will be donated to both HALO and

STARS, the goal of the fishing event

was to raise awareness of the problems

resulting from this invasive species

being introduced into the waterbody.

“Blood Indian is known as a place

anyone can put a rod in the water and

try to catch the big one: from little kids

on the shore with their grandparents

to serious anglers using their skills to

try and catch that monster Tiger

Trout,” said John Armstrong, parks

supervisor.

“We have been working to reduce

the impacts from Prussian carp since

they first appeared here,” he

continued.

“The Carp Cup Classic was a new

way to raise awareness of the danger of

introducing non-native species into

our ecosystems. This event helped take

a bunch of carp out of the reservoir

while giving families a chance to enjoy

a day out on the water.”

Prussian carp, which are native to

Europe and Asia, was first detected in

Alberta in the early 2000s.

Since then, they have spawned in

waterways throughout the province.

The fish species, which is a spermstealing

fish capable of cloning itself,

do not require males for reproduction.

This allows the species to reproduce

in huge numbers, creating a significant

problem for other fish species.

Prussian carp are voracious plant

eaters which often eat up the available

plant resources, causing other species

to fight for food and space.

Another control tactic being used at

Blood Indian Reservoir is the introduction

of a new trout species – Tiger

Trout.

This new species, resulting from a

female brown trout and a male brook

trout, is large and aggressive.

It is a predator for the smaller

Prussian carp and provides an

exciting fishing experience for anglers.

EDITORIAL

Two sides to

every story

B. Schimke

ECA Review

A Canadian charity exists to pursue

eligible charitable purposes governed

by the Canadian Revenue Agency

(CRA) under stringent obligations, regulations

and reporting.

There is an exception that allows a

charity to carry on its activities with

other charities, including non-Canadian

charities. These joint or

cooperative ventures must adhere to

the Canadian organization’s charitable

purposes, be under the direction of the

Canadian charity and follow Canadian

law.

Political action by any charity is limited

and tightly controlled.

On July 4, 2019 Premier Jason

Kenney launched a $2.5 million

inquiry to uncover foreign groups and

billionaires who fund Canadian charities

to spread misleading information

against pipelines and Alberta’s energy

sector.


In a free society, both

sides have legitimate

claims along with

rhetorical exaggerations,

but both sides need to be

heard respectfully.

In May 2012 the federal Conservative

Harper government, of which Kenney

was a senior cabinet minister, ordered

the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA)

to audit all environmental charities

arguing they were ‘foreign-funded

radicals’.

In 2012, no wrong doings were found,

no charges were laid and no environmental

charities lost their registered

status. At the time, even the conservative-friendly

National Post, through an

independent review of charitable tax

returns, found most foreign money

received by Canadian charities did not

go to environmental groups.

The top five recipients of foreign

funds or gifts-in-kind were Care

Canada, World Vision, Hamilton’s

McMaster University, the Canadian

UNICEF Committee and Ducks

Unlimited Canada. Other than Ducks

Unlimited finishing as one of the top

five recipients of foreign donations, the

next environmental charity on the list,

Tides Canada, was in the sixteenth

spot.

Great Bear Rainforest, a 6.4 hectare


OPINION

area along BC’s north and central

coast, is the largest remaining tract of

unspoiled rainforest in the world.

Tides Canada and other environmental

charities were instrumental in

planning for and saving much of this

old growth forest.

Canadian environmental charities

have received over $400 million (M)

from US foundations for this specific

project.

In a twist of irony, the Harper government

in 2007 also partnered with

Tides Canada to save the Great Bear

Rainforest. The Harper government

kicked in 30 per cent, $30M, and

through Tides Canada, The Gordon &

Betty Morris Foundation donated

$27M.

The partnership was a success. A

compromise agreement was reached

with conservationists, loggers, hunters

and First Nations to protect 85 per cent

of the rainforest from logging. All competing

interests left the table with

something.

The American directors of the

Gordon & Betty Morris Foundation

had absolutely nothing to gain financially

from their donation to the Great

Bear Rainforest. It was completely

altruistic—saving a precious corner of

the world.

The same cannot be said for Vivian

Krause, Mr. Kenney’s current ‘expert’

on foreign-funded propaganda campaigns

that defame Alberta’s oil

industry, or The National Post which

is giving her a ‘legitimate’ platform to

spread a conspiracy theory.

Ms. Krause admits that 90 per cent

of her income is derived from the oil

and gas industry. Krause also admits

that American donations represent a

small fraction of Canadian environmental

charities’ overall budgets. But

most important, she has never linked

any environmental campaigns in

Canada to specific US companies or

billionaires who might financially benefit

from such work.

The relevant facts are simply environmental

charities governed by

stringent laws, reporting requirements

and CRA audits, whereas Krause can

use cherry-picked numbers to support

the one industry that pays her way in

life.

In a free society, both sides have

legitimate claims along with rhetorical

exaggerations, but both sides need to

be heard respectfully.

There are always two sides to every

story and honourable government

leaders, at a minimum, need to

mediate those competing and conflicting

priorities, not become a

cheerleader of one.

The opinions expressed are not necessarily

the opinions of this newspaper.

FINANCIAL TIPS

Avoiding a travel

nightmare

We’ve all heard about Canadians

travelling abroad who find themselves

stranded in a hospital and running up

huge medical bills.

Hospital bills can run from $5,000 to

over $1,000,000 depending on the

health issue.

How can you be sure

that you have sufficient

coverage and that a

claim won’t be denied?

It’s important to

understand that travel

insurance is not a

health plan, but is

designed to cover

expenses if you suffered

a medical emergency

Peter Boys

while travelling outside

your province of

residence.

Be aware of what a pre-existing

medical condition is. Even simple illnesses

that you don’t think are a

problem can come back to haunt you

when you try to make a claim.

Do not believe that if your medical

condition is being managed and

causing little disruption to your daily

living, that it’s of little importance to

the insurer.

In reality, travel insurance policies

exclude coverage for some medical

conditions, and failure to disclose

these could invalidate the policy and

leave you without any coverage.

If you have a medical claim, the

insurance company WILL look

through your medical history. If you

did not disclose a pre-existing condition,

your policy can be considered

void even if your medical emergency

has nothing to do with your preexisting

condition.

If you are travelling while pregnant,

make sure that you yourself are

covered.

With pregnancy, your unborn baby

is not covered for insurance as you

cannot insure an unborn child.

If you go into labour while on vacation,

the medical bills for your

newborn can become monstrous.

Read your policy carefully before

you travel. Ask for help to fully

understand the eligibility requirements,

terms, conditions,

limitations and exclusions.

Coverage may be limited or

denied for things such as participating

in sporting events, certain

recreational activities or if you are

intoxicated at the time of your

injury or sickness.

If your health changes in any

way, including a change in medication

since the time you

purchased your policy and the time

you leave on your trip, you must

inform your insurer or the policy may

be invalid.

Applying for travel insurance online

is easy, but you need to be aware that

the responsibility is completely on you

to declare all the medical facts which

can be both confusing and

contentious.

When shopping for travel insurance,

cheaper and convenient is not necessarily

better. If you do have a

pre-existing condition, you may not

qualify for regular travel insurance,

but you can still apply for travel insurance

with medical conditions included.

Your premium will be higher but

you will have the peace of mind that a

medical emergency will be covered.

You need to ensure that you have the

right insurance for you.

The last thing you need during a

holiday medical crisis is finding out

that you’re not covered.

Inside & Out

Five kitchen renovation blunders

Thinking about renovating your

kitchen? If so, keep in mind that this is

a major home project. And, since your

kitchen is probably the room in your

house that gets the most use, you want

to make sure that the end result is

Disposal of

light bulbs

When a light bulb burns out, you

may wonder whether to toss it in the

trash or take it to your local recycling

centre. However, the best action to

take depends entirely on the type of

light bulb you’re throwing out.

Incandescent bulbs

When a standard light bulb burns

out, you can put it in the garbage with

the rest of your household waste. The

thin glass and metal wires are almost

impossible to separate for recycling.

Compact fluorescent lights (CFL)

CFL bulbs contain small amounts of

mercury that can damage the environment

if the bulb breaks. Many

municipalities have drop-off points for

hazardous waste items and you should

dispose of CFL light bulbs at these

locations.

Light-emitting diode (LED) lights

LED lights don’t technically burn

out like other bulbs, but they do dim

over time. When this happens, you can

safely discard them in the trash as

they don’t contain mercury like CFL

bulbs do. You can also check with your

local recycling centre to see if they

accept this type of bulb.

Regardless of the type of light bulb,

take care to wrap it in paper before

you throw it away. This way you’ll

avoid the possibility of someone getting

injured by the broken glass.

both beautiful and functional. Here

are five mistakes to avoid when

upgrading your kitchen.

1. Ignoring the layout. Keep your

kitchen functional by considering the

work triangle (the distance between

the sink, refrigerator and cooktop)

when designing your kitchen.

2. Focusing on trends. Instead of

choosing the most fashionable design

featu res, create a kitchen that truly

fits your needs. Forgo anything that

doesn’t work with your lifestyle.

3. Forgetting

about organization.

A pullout

pan try or extra

rack in the cabinet

can help you

keep your kitchen

tidy and sorted.

Invest in practical

storage options

that make your

life easier

4. Making last

minute changes.

Before the

Auto, Farm, Home & Commercial

renovation starts, be sure about the

choi ces you’ve made. Changing your

mind once the work has begun can be

expensive.

5. Neglecting the details. Nothing

should be overlooked when you’re

upgrading a kitchen. Details like the

cabinet handles, backsplash and trim

are what make your kitchen unique.

By avoiding these kitchen renovation

blunders, not only will your

remodel go smoothly, but the final

result is sure to be one that you love.

Give old items a second life

Upcycling is the process

of turning

something unwanted

into a beautiful and

useful object. While the

term may be new, the

concept isn’t. People

have been repurposing

things forever. Not only

does it keep items out of

landfills, it also gives

you an outlet to show

off your personal style.

There are two ways

to upcycle: you can give

something a makeover

while preserving its

original use, or you can

change its intended

purpose altogether.

Almost anything can

be upcycled, including

furniture, used clothes

and items you’d normally

throw out like

tin cans and glass jars.

If you don’t have anything

around the house

you can use, check out

local second hand

shops or flea markets.

Remember that

whatever you’re using

will retain its properties,

meaning that if

the dresser you’d like

to paint is falling apart,

a new look won’t

change that. You may

need to repair items

before upcycling them.

Projects to try

Are you

excited to start

upcycling but

not sure where

to begin? Here

are a few ideas:

• Old chairs

can be given

new life with a

coat of paint and

colourful cushions.

• Jam jars can be

painted to create pretty

storage for the bathroom

or to create

one-of-a-kind light

fixtures.

• Old wooden ladders

can be sanded and used

to hang blankets or

become rustic

bookshelves.

• Tin cans can be

covered in fabric and

used as pen holders in

an office.

For more inspiration,

browse online. With a

little time and imagination,

you’ll be on your

way to becoming an

accomplished upcycler.

Seven tips for keeping your home

cool without an air conditioner

During the hottest days of summer,

it can be difficult to keep your home at

a comfortable temperature. Here are

seven tips to stay cool without an air

conditioner.

1. Keep sunlight out. Close your

blinds and curtains during the day to

prevent the sun’s rays from heating up

your home.

2. Circulate the air. Set up a network

of fans to keep the air in your home

moving. You can also make a DIY air

conditioner by placing a bowl of ice or

an ice pack in front of your fans to

create an icy breeze.

3. Open your windows at night.

Open your windows

when the

sun goes down to

let the cooler evening

air in.

4. Use a dehumidifier.

Humidity can

make your house

uncomfortably

warm. Run a

de humidifier to

evaporate the

water in the air.

5. Cook outdoors.

Using the

stove or oven will

make your home

even hotter.

Instead, cook

your meals on the

barbecue.

6. Use appliances

wisely. Wait

until the sun goes

down to run your

dishwasher, and

7. Use your exhaust fans.

Things to consider before

building a backyard firepit

A firepit can make your backyard a

welcoming place for people to gather

and allows you to take advantage of

your outdoor living space well into the

evening. Here are some things to consider

if you’re thinking about

installing one on your property.

Where you’ll put it

Firepits should be kept at a minimum

of ten feet away from anything

flammable. Rethink your plans if your

yard doesn’t allow you to provide this

kind of clearance.

The fuel you’ll use

Most people think of wood when it

comes to firepits, but there are other

options available. You can choose to

have it run on propane, natural gas

or ethanol fuel.

What style you want

Firepits come in many different

styles. You can select a traditional

ring of stones, a rustic brick fireplace

or a modern piece that doubles

as a coffee table.

Before you purchase or build a

firepit, be sure to check your municipal

bylaws. Some cities have strict

rules concerning backyard fires,

and you don’t want to spend

time and money building a

firepit only to find out

you’re not allowed to use it.

BACKYARD FIRE-SAFETY TIPS

• Never build a fire outside of your firepit’s enclosure

• Clear the area of flammable materials

• Keep a fire extinguisher nearby

• Don’t put garbage or garden waste into the fire

• Never leave a fire unattended

• Make sure the fire is completely extin guished

before going inside

• In the case of a wood-burning firepit, allow ashes to

cool completely before safely discarding them

Green: the hottest design colour of 2019

Both classic and unexpected,

green has quickly

become the colour du jour.

From jewel-bright emerald

to calming sage, there’s a

green for every room and

style.

Forest green walls set a

solemn tone in an office or

reading nook. If a full coat of

paint is too much of a commitment,

you can integrate

this dark colour in subtler

ways. Opt for it on a lamp,

area rug or curtains.

Emerald green will

brighten up a small bathroom

or add interest to a

utilitarian space like a

laundry room. In a kitchen,

glossy green cabinets are a

refreshing change from

white. In a living room or

den, a mid-century style sofa

in this jewel-tone would be a

great focal point.

Sage green is relaxing and

calm, and would be ideal for

a nursery or child’s

bedroom.

Kelly green is vibrant and

exciting. Consider painting

your chairs and table this

hue to add a touch of

whimsy to your dining

room.

Green is very versatile

and can work in almost any

room. To keep the look fresh

and modern, pair it with

cool neutrals, and avoid combining it

with warm colours like yellow or

burgundy.

East Central Alberta Farm Families awarded

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Four families were selected from the

east central region for the Farm

Family awards at the Calgary

Stampede including the Tainsh family

of Kneehill County, the Storch family

of Special Area No. 2, the Blair family

of Special Area

No. 3 and the

Holowath

family of

Starland

County.

Each year,

counties and

agricultural

service boards

across southern

Alberta nominate

a farm

family that still

holds true to the

western way of

life, is continuing

to

preserve their

family legacy

and contributes to Alberta’s agriculture

sector.

Nineteen families were celebrated in

total at the 23rd annual BMO Farm

Family Awards held on Mon. July 8 at

the BMO Centre of Stampede Park in

Calgary.

As leaders in Alberta’s agriculture

industry, the winning farm families

have deep-seated roots in their communities,

a passion for farming and

proud family legacies carried on

through their day to day operations.

For the Holowath family, the recognition

has been a humbling

experience.

“You’re just doing what you’re doing

but when it does show up it’s humbling

and you appreciate it,” said Kent

Holowath. “It’s never a dull moment.”

Their philosophy in life focuses on

being good community members who

show their pride and help whenever

needed.

Kent and Jill believe this attitude

and commitment to success has been

passed down to their three children:

Garrett, Brett and Amanda.

Jill Holowath and neighbour Howard Toliver gather around the calf table as

their 2018 branding took place. Image courtesy of Kent Holowath

A large component of the award criteria

is community involvement,

something that the Rumsey-based

family is never short of doing including

athletics like minor baseball, curling

and figure skating as well as the

county agricultural service board, 4-H,

and school activities.

They run roughly 150 purebred

Angus herd on eight quarters of pasture

land as well as farm nine quarters

of cultivated land.

The Storch Family, located in the

Garden Plains area of Special Areas

No. 2, were also elated to receive the

award.

Kenneth and Lynda Storch along

with son Allen, his wife Leona and

children Tyrel and Breanna were on

hand to accept their recognition.

Family has meant everything to

them.

“We are quite humbled,” said Lynda

Storch. “We are fortunate and blessed

to have our family close by.”

The fifth generation farm has 140

red Simmental Shorthorn cattle as

well as 2880 acres of cultivated land as

well as 600 acres in pasture

without the use of the community

pasture Special Areas has

designed.

The BMO Farm Family

Awards aim to maintain a primary

focus on agriculture and

agri-food at the Calgary

Stampede and within southern

Alberta, promote the relationship

between urban and rural

people and create awareness

about agriculture and the value

of the family farmer.

This event showcases those

who take an innovative

approach to growing their business,

demonstrate a

commitment to traditional

western values and maintain

an exceptional standard of

sustainability.

Selected families are brought to

Stampede for the

BMO Farm

Family Awards,

which include an

awards ceremony,

reception and

brunch.

Each Farm

Family also

received a personalized

gate sign

and an afternoon

at the Calgary

Stampede Rodeo.

“They treat you

well,” said Holowath.

In addition to Devin Dreeshen, the

Alberta Minister of Agriculture, John

MacAulay, Regional President,

Prairies and Northwest Territories

Division, BMO Bank of Montreal and

Dana Peers, Calgary Stampede

President and Chairman of the Board

were also in attendance to help recognize

the winning families.
