Local Journalism initiative reporter
Stettler town council lowered a
major rental fee charged at the local ice
rink in hopes it will accommodate a
higher-tier hockey team’s efforts to
appear in this community more often.
The decision was made at the July 19
regular meeting of council.
Brad Robbins, manager of
Recreation & Culture presented to
councillors a request to lower ice
rental rates for the Central Alberta
Selects (CAS), a higher-tier AA team,
to make it more economically feasible

“At that time I was not aware of
actual due date, October, or June 30. I
had asked someone in your town office
in a phone call which at that time no
one could give me a certain date.”
The property owner then went on to
explain their June 30 flight from
Montreal to Toronto was delayed with
no connecting flight to Calgary, “...I
was made to stand in line for close to
four hours and then told no flights
available to come home that day.”
The property owner went on to
explain they finally got a flight to
Edmonton by 9 p.m. and with various
other trials and tribulations the property
owner finally arrived home in
Stettler at 10 p.m. July 1.
“I was only aware of the June 30
deadline the next day, July 2, when
opening my mail...which I even then
tried to call the town office in hopes
someone might take the call...don’t
remember if I left a message or not.
“However I drove down to the town
office Monday morning...and asked if I
could be given a cancellation of the late
penalty charge due to my no fault of
mine circumstances (sic).”
The letter writer noted they didn’t
want to pay their tax bill ahead of time.
The property owner noted their tax bill

teams due to the volume of SMHA resident

teams,” stated Robbins in his memo to

was $2,800 and the July 1 late penalty
of three per cent would add up to about
$84. Town staff notified the property
owner only town council has the
authority to waive penalty fees.
Switenky provided council with a
list of the methods the Town of Stettler
used to notify property owners of the
June 30, 2022 deadline, including newspaper
advertisements, a website notice,
radio spots, utility bill notices, community
screens located around Stettler
and numerous social media posts.
The CAO noted the Municipal
Government Act (MGA) gives council
authority to waive penalties, “equitably,”
which means those decisions
should apply to everyone.
Referring to the property owner
balking at paying their tax bill early,
Switenky stated the town offers a payment
plan so property owners don’t
have to pay the entire bill at once.
Mayor Sean Nolls stated property
owners who wait until the deadline
day are taking a chance and noted the
town also offers an online e-service so
a property owner could pay their taxes
through that service essentially anywhere
they happen to be.
Coun. Wayne Smith stated he had no
sympathy for someone who waits until
the last day possible especially if
travel to Stettler.
“The Selects are a AA league hub
center as defined by Hockey Alberta
offering a competitive regional team at
the U18, U15 and U13 levels,” stated
“Players from the SMHA are eligible
to try out/play for each of these teams
as a result of the Stettler Minor Hockey
Association being included within
their regional boundaries. The CAS
teams are administered under the
Lacombe Minor Hockey Association.

play games where ice is available

Coun. Kurt Baker sympathized with
the property owner and noted the

Coun. Gord Lawlor stated he spoke
to the property owner in question and
understood how the problem occurred
but also noted the many notices town
staff put out about the tax deadline and
the many electronic options available
to pay taxes so Lawlor felt the penalty
should be upheld.
Coun. Scott Pfeiffer stated the penalty
is small and it has to be equitable
for all property owners.
Switenky pointed out about 10 property
owners paid their taxes late but
within five days, so the current decision
should apply to them too.
Coun. Smith stated if councillors forgave
the penalty in question those
other 10 property owners will complain
and rightfully so, adding that if
councillors waived the penalty they’re

He also noted it looks like the rec
centre will have some open ice time in
the 2022-23 season.
“The Parks and Leisure Services
department are currently working on
a new recommendation to Policy X-1(d)
which would take effect at the start of
the 2023-24 hockey season, but as a
result of the Stettler Lightning (men’s
team) taking a second years leave of
absence the SRC does have some
excess ice that will be available for
rent as a result during the 2022-23
hockey season,” stated Robbins.
“The Parks and Leisure Services
Department are proposing a rate of
$110 per hour plus tax. As result, a onehour
practice slot will cost CAS teams
$137.50 plus tax, which covers the cost
of one-15 minute flood.
A 2.5 hour game slot will cost CAS
teams $302.50 plus tax with the addition
of a 15 minute flood at the
conclusion of the booking.
“While there is never a guarantee
that a Town or County of Stettler resident
is successful in making a CAS
team, the rate we are proposing would
apply to all CAS teams regardless.

Department highlights the additional
economic impact to our community by

the lower revenue at SRC would be

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL
Stettler County council hears herbicide
sometimes not landing properly
Local Journalism Initiative reporter
Stettler County’s Agriculture
Services Board (ASB) heard concerns
that municipal weed spraying may
not be landing where it’s supposed to
at all times. The discussion was held
at the July 26 regular ASB meeting.
Coun. Ernie Gendre asked that the
board, which is chaired by Coun. Les
Stulberg and is comprised of county
council, to discuss the issue of “herbicide
crop damage,” and brought along
several photos of what looked like
heavy herbicide application in
Stettler County ditches.
One photo showed some herbicide
touching a canola crop and one photo
showed what appeared to be herbicide
touching a crop near a recently
pushed back fence line.
Gendre stated he’d heard concerns
from residents and he himself went
out to look at the spot where the fence
was pushed back and added the
farmer hayed that ditch himself every
year which took care of the weeds.
Gendre stated it appears the vegetation
was destroyed and he
wanted to know which weed species
were sprayed there.
Reeve Larry Clarke asked Gendre if
the councillor contacted the county’s
agriculture services department to
look at the spots in question, and
Gendre answered yes he did.
Director of Agriculture Services
Quentin Beaumont confirmed he visited
several of the spots in question but
not the one that had the fence pushed
Coun. Justin Stevens, looking at the
photos, stated he was concerned about
spots with fairly steep slopes that
appeared to have broad vegetation kill,
and how that would affect erosion.
Reeve Clark stated it looked like
pretty serious kill to him caused by a
chemical like Roundup.
Beaumont responded county staff
never spray glyphosate-containing
products like Roundup in a ditch.
When asked what would have been
sprayed there?” Beaumont answered,
“A heavy dose of something.”
Beaumont stated that the spots he
inspected appeared to have burn spots
but saw some grass growing back in
certain areas and it appeared to him
the county may have oversprayed in
some spots but wasn’t sure.
However, he said there were options
Hanna RCMP investigate
theft of credit card
Hanna RCMP received a complaint
of a theft of a wallet from a personal
vehicle on 5 Avenue in Hanna on July
11. The theft had occurred sometime
between July 8 and 9, 2022.
The wallet contained a credit card
which was used to make purchases at
the Husky gas station in Hanna on
July 9 at 9 a.m. An adult female who
used the stolen credit card was
observed on surveillance pumping gas
into a black Ford F-150 truck, which
had been reported stolen out of Tyler,
The Ford truck was subsequently
recovered in Kelowna, BC on July 16,
The female suspect and her male
counterpart have been linked to 23
police occurrences from July 6 to July
16, 2022, originating in Saskatchewan.
Hanna RCMP are looking to identify
the female in the video from the Hanna
Husky. If you have any information
regarding this female or her male
counterpart, please contact the Hanna

available through the Apple App or
Google Play Store.
At 10:14 p.m., the Stettler RCMP
detachment received a report of a disturbance
in the area of 58 Street and
50A Avenue. When officers arrived in
the area, they were flagged down by a
female who said she had been threatened
by a man with an axe.
Officers located the man in a nearby
alley and confronted him. During this
time, one officer discharged his conducted
energy weapon and another
discharged his firearm, striking the
man. Emergency Medical Services
arrived and provided the man with
medical care. He was then transported
by STARS Air Ambulance to an
Edmonton-area hospital and released
the next day.
Two weapons were recovered from

if the grass didn’t come back. “If it
doesn’t come back we’ll re-seed it,”
Gendre stated he felt some of the
bare spots were caused by county staff
as landowners don’t spray that way,
pointing out large bare spots near
power poles. The reeve disputed that
assessment, however, noting it could
be a farmer who tapped a power pole.
One photo showed a canola field
affect by spraying and Beaumont said,
“I’ll tell you straight up it was us.”
Board members then discussed the
Stettler County ASB’s policy if
spraying herbicide “fence to fence,”
which may have caused a problem
where the fence was pushed back as
county staff wouldn’t have known
where the property line was.
Coun. Paul McKay asked what

answered a bylaw exists with some
However, Chief Administrative
Officer (CAO) Yvette Cassidy pointed
out if farmers are haying county
ditches it actually saves the county

lots of staff out and about who just
need to keep an eye out for farmers

McKay stated some residents were
concerned that two Great Horned Owls
were nesting in an area where the
brush truck may have been spraying,

County looks to simplify
Torrington speed zone
Local journalism initiative reporter
During the update of Kneehill
County’s community peace officer
policy, councillors heeded a staff
request and will ask the provincial
government for authority to write
speeding tickets on a primary
highway in the Hamlet of Torrington.
The discussion took place at the July
9 regular meeting of council.
Councillors heard a presentation
from Manager of Protective Services
Debra Grosfield, who informed
council the municipality’s peace
officer policy required updating to
match recent changes made by the
provincial government to the peace
officer manual which guides
Alberta’s community peace officers
Some changes made to reflect the
updated manual include emergency
medical calls being removed from the
Kneehill policy as the CPOs don’t
respond to such calls anymore unless
requested by police or firefighters,
and a clarification of “on duty” to
explain that CPO authority exists
only when lawfully employed by
Kneehill County and on duty.
Complaints against CPOs was also
clarified to reflect body worn cameras
and that this process is taken
directly out of the provincial manual.
The complaint and discipline sections
were also clarified, stated
Grosfield, to explain the difference
between an enforcement officer and a
community peace officer. Complaint
processes are different for the two
Grosfield also pointed out a jurisdictional
map included in the peace
officer policy, and asked councillors
to consider a recommendation that
Kneehill County apply to the provincial
government to get authority to
enforce traffic laws on the entire
length of the primary highway
passing through the hamlet.
Currently, it was noted, county
CPOs have authority over most but
not all of it.
She explained it’s difficult for the
CPOs when they can only do a part of
the road and not all of it. Grosfield
added that she contacted the Olds
RCMP detachment commander to get
an opinion and they supported
Kneehill County’s request to expand
Coun. Carrie Fobes noted that spot
is inside her division boundaries and
supports the recommendation.
“Lots of people cross the highway
between there,” said Fobes, pointing
to the highway in question.
Other changes to the peace officer
policy included a clarification on
medical first responders, Check Stop
support, known risk policy, monitoring
safety systems, body worn
cameras which Grosfield stated will
be added to an upcoming budget,
school resource officer, records management
and supervisory review.
During discussion Grosfield noted
the CPO’s dispatch centre is the
Lacombe Police Service which
includes monitoring. A procedure is
in place if a CPO misses their regular
Grosfield noted the provincial government
provided an enhanced
authority/additional options part of
the peace officer manual which
allows employers such as Kneehill
County to give community
peace officers more duties.
Some of the duties that
could be added include nonurgent

and motor vehicle collision

few; she went on to explain
these added responsibilities

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB August 4'22 7
Outrage over Senior Amenity Zone project
Outrage and frustration regarding
the project costs for the Senior
Amenity Zone project arose during the
July 7 Hanna council information
The $492,000 plan consists of a
walking trail on Palliser Trail, sidewalk
replacements and bump-outs on
5th Avenue and widening pathways in
Hunter-king Hector Park.
The $369,000 from Prairies Can and
the Western Economic Development
(WED) through the Canada
Community Revitalization Fund would
fund part of the project which requires
Hanna to pay the rest.
Although applications for tender
started in June, the project failed to
garner the interest of contractors.
The project timeline and funding
concerned Chief Administrative
Officer (CAO) Kim Neill since the
funding deadline is March 31, 2023.
Neill mentioned that for a contractor,
design company 818 Studios Ltd. contacted
four contractors who expressed
interest in the project. One, in particular,
sent a tender for $1.7 million.
With the project being significantly
over budget, CAO Neill contacted WED
and Prairies Can to see if an extension
Planning with 818 Studios to reduce
the scope of work to meet the funding
requirements was made on the condition
that the contractor Urban Life
Solutions agrees to the project.
Administration and Urban Life
Solutions will review the tender and
focus on priority areas with revised
Coun. Sandra Murphee questioned
how 818 Studio Ltd. managed to have
the pricing significantly off target.
“If I did that as a business, I wouldn’t
be in business,” says Murphee.
“That’s crazy. So either 818 should
give us a discount on what they gave
us, or we wasted our time on things we
can never afford because they told us it
Coun. Murphee expressed frustration
on the scaling back of the project
and the impact it would have had on
“This was exciting. We were going to
make the town look like we are
investing in our young people,” says
CAO Neill responded that if certain
parts of the project could be salvaged,
with the town picking up some of the
cost, the project could be worthwhile.
Mayor Danny Povaschuk suggested
an option to save the funds for the
future rather than pursue this project.
A discussion regarding the listed
costs made council question the prices
provided on the tender.
Council will make the final decision
on the amenity zone project at the regular
council meeting in August.
Sgt. Robert Welsman of the Hanna
RCMP detachment appeared before
council to give an update regarding
activity and statistics.
Sgt. Welsman provided an update on
the new victim services program by
the RCMP, the Hanna Learning Centre
and the office of the Justice Solicitor
The new program will shift to a
regional model that allows Alberta to
take responsibility for victim services
instead of having individual offices
funded through grants.
As preparation for the new model
will take time, an interim solution will
be in place for victim services.
“As the arrangement’s set up, our
detachment still has a responsibility to
advise victims of crime of what their
rights are,” says Sgt. Welsman.
The RCMP looks forward to the
victim services program as it will help
assist victims through the court
Coun. Sandra Beaudoin asked if provincial
elections affect the program,
but Sgt. Welsman couldn’t provide an
answer. He hopes that bureaucracy
will not interfere with the program.
Coun. Angie Warwick outlined that
politicians need to be accountable for
their actions if it influences the
Statistics for crime in Hanna and the
surrounding area showed no drastic
changes compared to the same quarter
of previous years.
According to Sgt. Welsman, property
crime and copper wire theft are still
common crimes, in addition to
Education on fraud issues is also a
priority for the RCMP as it is a commonly
Coun. Beaudoin brought concerns of
a resident about suspected drug trafficking
in the community.
The resident is a single mother concerned
about her children becoming
clients for a possible dealer who cuts
through their property.
She also mentioned to Coun.
Beaudoin that the mother of the suspected
dealer provides sandwiches to
children in the community to garner
Coun. Beaudoin outlined that this is
not the image Hanna should portray
and asked Sgt. Welsman if there is any
targeting for drug crimes in the town.
Sgt. Welsman outlined that drugs
are a prevalent problem in every community
but guarantees that the RCMP
is aware of individuals involved in the
drug trade and will continue to investigate
Coun. Murphee noted a leap in
reports regarding mental health. Sgt.
Welsman stated that the number stems
from individuals with mental health
concerns who make reports with the
“I will say that we do deal with
mental health issues on a regular basis
at the detachment,” says Sgt. Welsman.
“I don’t think that’s different anywhere
else, but we will certainly keep our eye
out for an increase.”
He outlines that the RCMP works
hard to ensure to help those individuals
connect with the proper medical
Hanna Learning Centre
Doray Veno, Executive Director of
the Hanna Learning Centre (HLC),
provided an activity update to council.
The HLC, a registered non-profit
serving the community since 1976, consists
of four departments; Learning
and Literacy, Career and Employment
Services, Connecting Community and
A recent program called ‘come for
lunch, stay for conversation’ was made
to address food security concerns in
Every Wednesday, HLC provides
pre-packaged meals in the lobby of the
Provincial Building. Since last March,
it has given 530 meals to the
HLC freezes remaining meals for a
grab-and-go program offered once
every month to prevent food waste. On
occasion, individuals receive meals
outside of these days.
Meals are made off-site by Karen
Miller, a local caterer, where they are
brought in and served. Every meal
comes individually packaged and provides
Veno also mentioned an amalgamation
of the HLC and Hanna Volunteer
Association that started in 2021.
A new organization will launch
before the end of this year with new
branding but will continue to offer the
same services. Rather than operating
two organizations, it will unify them
A challenge that Veno and the HLC
face is the uncertainty with the facility.
Policy from Alberta Infrastructure

It will cost the HLC $60,000 per year.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB August 4'22 11
Had a ‘heart’ for people with special needs
Our hearts are broken as we
announce the passing of our beloved
wife, mom and grandma, Elaine
Cummings (nee Boyden) on Sun. July
24, 2022 at the young age of 67.
Elaine passed away peacefully and it
brings comfort knowing that she is no
longer suffering and that she is free
from all her pain.
Elaine was born on Oct. 10, 1954 to
Samuel (Bud) and Eva (Rose) Boyden,
in Camrose, Alta. It was a very busy
household in the Boyden family as
Elaine was blessed with six sisters:
Louise, Bev, Vivien, Kathy, Jeannie
and Joannie. A total of seven girls in
The best moments of
Elaine’s childhood were
spending summers with
her grandparents, time
with her sisters and
playing and getting into
mischief with her best
friend and neighbour
Elaine loved going over
to Cherrie’s house.
Cherrie’s mom Jean loved
Elaine like her own daughter. The
Rogacz family became a second family
During her growing up years Elaine
completed her Grade 7 Royal
Conservatory music in piano. Elaine’s
gift of playing the piano brought her
family much enjoyment over the years.
The family moved numerous times
through the years as her father had a
career on the CN Railroad and his job
took the family all over Alberta, and
British Columbia. At the young age of
three, Elaine’s mom passed away of a
Again, we are comforted knowing
that she has been reunited and in the
arms of her mom in heaven.
Elaine and her family resided in
Prince George, BC for many years and
after she left high school, she moved to
Red Deer to be near her cousins and
work at Michener Centre.
This is where mom developed a
heart for people with special needs and
she shared her love, gentle touch and
smile with those who maybe felt
unloved most of their lives.
It was in Red Deer where Elaine met
Len Cummings, and after a short
engagement they were married on
April 14, 1973. As a new married
couple, they resided in Hanna where
she worked in the kitchen at the Hanna
An exciting year for Elaine and
Lenny was in 1974. They purchased a
mobile trailer, moved the trailer on to
the Cummings family farm and in that
same year they were blessed with their
baby girl Laurie.
After a couple years living on the
family farm, Elaine and Len moved
their mobile trailer into Youngstown.
In 1977 they again were blessed and
proud to be parents of their only son,
Elaine was mostly a stay-at-home
mom, always putting the needs of her
children first. She did work a little bit
out of the house at the local grocery
store (Gibbs Store). Elaine became
involved with Youngstown United
Church, and taught Sunday school.
In 1982, Elaine and Lenny purchased
their own farm just west of
Youngstown. After living in a small
mobile trailer and now living in a big
house with a big farmyard, Elaine and
Lenny now wished they had more
In 1983 they were proud to be
become parents again to another precious
Elaine had many passions in life.
She loved her flowers and starting
flowers from seed. Elaine had a green
thumb. At one time I counted over 80
plants inside her house!
Elaine found comfort in playing the
piano, visiting with her close friends
and volunteering in the Youngstown
community, especially if squares,
cookies, or food were needed for a community
She enjoyed knitting barbie clothes,
baby blankets and doll dresses.
Elaine’s homemade soups, buns and
cinnamon buns were the best.
As an adult Elaine was determined
to go back to college. In her early fifties,
she enrolled into Red Deer College
and completed the two-year
(working with people with special
After graduating with honours
she travelled to Hawaii to celebrate
She was employed with the
Youngstown home and worked
with adults with disabilities.
Elaine’s heart would shine when
she worked. She was genuine,
kind and loving to the residents
of the Youngstown Home.
Always a smile on her face, for the residents
and her co-workers.
Some other exciting highlights in
Elaine’s life was travelling to Jamaica
in 2008 to watch Michael marry the
love of his life Charissa.
In 2012 Elaine and Laurie travelled
to Ukraine to volunteer in orphanages
and at a facility for adults with disabilities.
Elaine again was in her glory,
Elaine referred to her trip to
Ukraine as a “vacation for her soul”.
Len, Elaine and Brielle also took a
trip to Niagara Falls and she was able
to enjoy the beauty of the falls with her
Her greatest passion was spending
as much time as she could loving her
grandchildren: Brenden, Sarah and
Brielle. She would do anything to go
watch them play their sports and
watch all their activities. Even with all
her poor health conditions, she was
still determined to go watch her grandchildren
and be their greatest fan.
In Elaine’s last few years of life on
the farm she was gifted in being able to
raise her youngest granddaughter
Brielle. Elaine’s new name became
“mama” to Brielle. Elaine poured her
love into Brielle. Spending every
moment she could in Brielle’s life
teaching her to be kind, to have good
manners, to help others and to share
with others. Elaine spent hours
reading, singing and playing games
Elaine’s legacy and greatest gift was
love. She was kind to everyone she
encountered. Whether it was her
smile, gentle touch, hug or a little note
that she left to surprise someone,
telling them how much she cared
about them or reassuring someone
that everything will be okay and that
they are loved.
Elaine was selfless. She was always
busy taking care of everyone else, putting
other’s needs first and she would
Life was not fair or easy for Elaine,
but she always remained positive and
always looked at the bright side of
In 2019 Elaine was stolen from her
family. She was diagnosed with rapid
onset Alzheimer’s. She moved to the
Hanna Long Term Care in 2021 and
was cared and loved by the staff there.
Alzheimer’s may have robbed Elaine
from her life, but Alzheimer’s could
not rob Elaine of who she truly was
inside. Elaine’s gentle spirit, love and
her smile continued to shine.
