Stettler RCMP arrest suspect second time

ECA Review

Stettler RCMP have arrested a suspect

for the second time in 10 days for

similar charges.

According to an Aug. 26 press

release 70-year-old Larry Watson was

arrested for charges similar to those


Invest in the people

Our government has no qualms

about investing billions of dollars in

the huge corporations or other countries,

but they don’t ever seem to want

to invest in our own people.

The people are the backbone of the

country, not the corporations.

The health professions are short

thousands of nurses and doctors, but I

don’t hear of the government coming

forward to invest any money to help

these people to get into training. This

would be a great place to invest some

money.

Education of any kind has become so

expensive that unless you have very

rich parents, it’s almost prohibitive for

lower income people.

Even the more ordinary jobs require

expensive training to get into.

For example, truck driver training

is $15 to $20 thousand to get a Class 1

drivers licence.

Oilfield workers are required to get

five or six different tickets to get to

work in that field and it all takes time

and money to obtain.

I think from the looks of our cities,

some people just give up and go on welfare

and buy a tent and set up in a park

and rely on Food Banks.

We probably have a full generation

of good potential doctors and nurses

that have slipped away because the

Government didn’t see the need to

“invest in the people.”

Many other professions face the

same problems and I would like to

remind the Government that bandaids

work on small nicks and cuts but when

you have a gaping wound, you need a

much bigger bandage!

Dear Editor,

Industrial noise pollution affects

some more than others. Suffering from

a mental health disorder can greatly

enhance the affects of industrial noise

on an individual that suffers from

PTSD.

Benchmark Commodities in Bashaw

is operating a business that emits

sound levels above and beyond reasonable

decibel limits. The location of the

operation is in between residential

areas in the town along the railway

tracks.

With numerous complaints from residents

to the Town of Bashaw, to no

avail, as the Town does not have a

bylaw on decibel level. This means, no

enforcement.

The noise maker is a vibration

implement attached to the front of a

skid-steer. This machine is used to

knock loose debris left in the bottom of

the train car.

An operator pulls the skid-steer up

to the train car, situates the vibration

implement on the bottom chute of the

train car and then proceeds to start

tampering on the metal chute. The

duration ranges from 30 seconds up to

over a minute at a time. The noise

emitted is extremely loud.

This goes on, intermittently/consistently

through the day, sometimes for

over eight hours. It has been going on

for months now.

My mental health is suffering

immensely. I decided to call the company

and reveal my mental health

disorder so they understand how this

Watson was arrested for in Stettler less

than two weeks prior.

“On Aug. 22, 2022 at about 9:30 p.m.,

a Stettler RCMP member observed (a

suspect) exit a local business and enter

a motor vehicle as the driver,” stated

the press release from Stettler RCMP

detachment commander S/Sgt/ Bruce

Holliday.

“The Stettler RCMP member was

has affected me. They say, we’ll see

what we can do.

It did get better for about a week.

Then it got way worse.

I called again and this time the

owner seemed flippant and was rude to

me? I asked, is there no solution for

this extreme noise? You are affecting

my mental well being to the point

where I cannot sleep, function or have

peace in my own home. I cannot even

go outdoors when this is going on.

He answered saying, if you can

figure out a better way then go ahead?

I am beyond words at this point. He

is the owner and he doesn’t care. A

capitalistic business owner with no

concern for the residents that surround

their operations.

I don’t know where to turn, I am held

captive in a sea of anxiety due to this

company.

‘Atta boy’!

Dear Editor.

Regarding the poem by Lee Hudson

titled ‘The real inconvenient truth’, pg.

2 Aug. 25, 2022 issue I would say, “Atta

boy”!

Yes, we all believe in global

warming, the evidence is there and it’s

hard to deny that but the reason for

global warming is found in Isaiah 30,

verse 26.

RCMP allege Watson was the driver

and did not stop but rather accelerated

the SUV he was driving, fleeing at a

high rate of speed.

“As Stettler members continued to

(the suspect) had been operating, further

investigation led to locating (the

suspect) at a Big Valley residence,

Municipalities vote

down ad bylaw

Submitted

The St. Albert Gazette won a victory

for transparency in local government

this week.

Their city council voted Monday

against a bylaw that would have

enabled the city to select the method it

uses to publish legal advertisements.

Many of the province’s municipalities

have enacted such bylaws since

the Municipal Government Act was

amended in 2017, allowing councils to

create their own ad bylaws. Councils

have argued that posting these notices

on their websites saves money and gets

the notices out on a timelier basis.

Jamison addressed council during the

this as well as his previous matters in

Stettler.

“The Stettler RCMP will continue to

focus efforts to bring these individuals

before the courts in response to their

criminal activities and the resulting

negative influences that can affect our

communities,” added Holliday.

Watson was arrested Aug. 12 in

Stettler and charged with six offences

including possessing a substance suspected

of being methamphetamine,

operating a motor vehicle while unauthorized,

operating an uninsured

motor vehicle, operating an unregistered

motor vehicle, open liquor in a

motor vehicle and cannabis marijuana

in a motor vehicle within reach of the

driver.

Readers may recognize Watson’s

name from a previous high-profile

arrest in the region, that being in connection

with a Feb. 21, 2016 police raid

on a meth lab north of Stettler located

on Sec. Hwy. #601. Watson was

charged along with three other men.

In the year following World War I, Anna Douglas was born in Hanna Alta. and Dorothy

Queck in Iowa, U.S.. While that in itself is not remarkable, it is noteworthy that Anna and

Dorothy are still around and living in Three Hills. Their 103 years stretched for many miles

(Anna—China, Philippines, then Prairie College staff; Dorothy—Iowa and then Prairie staff).

The August 17 photo marks no one’s birthday or anniversary, just two survivors, as they call

themselves, who have enjoyed each other’s company in Three Hills for many years. Anna

lives in her home with son Trevor and wife Norma. Weather permitting, Dorothy takes daily

walks from the Golden Hills Lodge and was seen recently getting on an alpaca farm tour

bus without assistance. Anna is four months older than Dorothy. ECA Review/D. Nadeau

the City of St. Albert commissioned

that showed residents preferred

receiving notices and information

from the city in their local newspaper.

Rosalynn Thompson, a St. Albert resident,

said she is one of the 67 per cent

of St. Albertans that prefers to get

their information in the paper.

“I didn’t come here today to talk on

behalf of my business,” Jamison said.

“I came here today to talk on behalf of

the residents of St. Albert who rely

on The Gazette to keep them informed

of the goings on in their city.”

St. Albert joins other local governments

such as Olds and the County of

Mountanview, who have chosen to

keep advertising in their local

newspapers.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB September 1'22 3

Meet Hanna’s newest star: Garret Gregory

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Although 36-year-old Garret

Gregory from Hanna, Alta.

works for the Western Financial

Group, he is becoming a rising

music sensation garnering

thousands of fans from his

music.

Gregory has been making

music since he was 14 years old.

He started his first band in high

school with a few friends called

Rattle Cloud.

“We started playing rock

music because we listened to a

ton of rock back in the day,”

says Gregory. “It was Creed,

Nickelback, Default, Daughtery,

we were doing a ton of that

music.”

After performing and garnering

interest in Hanna,

Gregory and his band landed

gigs in Edmonton and Red Deer.

Although he enjoyed making

rock music, he realized that

rock music in Alberta was not

very big. He believed the province

is very rural, country and

farming based, so he made

music to reflect that.

“We ended up playing some

country music and the results of

that show were big time. Our

fanbase grew tenfold.”

As Gregory grew up, he drew

‘man, I really want to

Gregory.

It laid the groundwork

Gregory. “So I just

the opposing jobs as they

give him regular cool

downs between his daily

and performer life.

In discussing his first

single, Leavin’ You, Gregory

notes the popularity of the

song exceeded his

expectations.

“I did not really expect

much out of it,” said

Gregory. “[...] I didn’t know

how it was going to compare

with everything else out

there, so I was setting

myself up so I wouldn’t be

disappointed.”

Although his goal was to

get his music out, people

started to contact

him about his

work. With thousands

of listeners

online, Gregory

never anticipated

the success of his

first song.

“It’s pretty

shocking and

hearing that

they’re enjoying

the song,” said

Gregory.

even the Calgary Stampede,

it has all been a long,

Gregory has plans to

release three new singles

December. He will continue

to make music and has no

ECA Review/S.Erickson

Daniel Gonzalez

ECA Review

Paige Zinger (14), daughter of Danny

and Heidi Zinger of Red Deer is a

national champion in the female U16

high jump finals after jumping 1.64

metres.

Zinger also captured a second silver

medal in the female U16 4x100m relay.

The National Youth Legion Track

and Field Championships were held in

Sherbrooke, Que. from Aug. 5 - 7.

Grandparents are Claud

and Diane Zinger of

Coronation.

Zinger recalls the first

time she was introduced to

track and field three years

ago.

“First it started at school.

Like we did track and field in

gym class with a meet at the

end of the year,“ says Zinger.

Shortly after garnering

interest in the sport, she

learned about different clubs

in Red Deer through her parents.

Zinger joined the Red

Deer Titans Club for two outdoor

seasons.

In preparation for the competition,

Zinger trained three

times a week which involved different

drills and strength training.

Although this was her first time

competing nationally, Zinger was not

anxious about the competition and

gave her all.

“I was quite

excited to go to one

of those meets for

nationals,“ says

Zinger. “I was a

little nervous, but I

was mainly excited

to go to another

province to compete

at that level.”

Zinger

“When we

started warm-ups,

my nerves started

to kick in a little more. A lot of the girls

were a lot taller than me because I was

one of the shortest ones.”

She notes that this is the best she

has done compared to meets before the

competition.

“I don’t think I really realized how

big of an accomplishment it was until

after the event, but I was happy with

my performance,” says Zinger.

Although Zinger is proud of her

accomplishments, she thanks the

people supporting her through her

Zinger has no plans to stop competing.

She plans to participate in

more national-level competitions in

the future.

Although she acknowledges the bar

for competition gets raised with new

divisions, she hopes to continue to “get

better every time.”

County wants trees out of ditches

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler County’s Agriculture

Services Board (ASB) debated how

best to approach the issue of trees

growing in ditches and right-of-ways,

but board members agreed they want

those trees removed.

The issue of trees growing in ditches

and right-of-ways was added to the

ASB’s regular Aug. 24 agenda as a

board request for information and as a

follow-up from a previous regular

council meeting. The ASB is comprised

of members of county council.

Board member Ernie Gendre noted

concerns were brought to him from

residents about how Stettler County

sprays problematic trees in ditches

and right-of-ways.

Gendre stated he was concerned

about the issue because trees located

in the wrong place should be considered

weeds.

Board member James Nibourg

stated clearing trees costs money and

the method Stettler County already

uses is affordable, which includes

spraying and some brushing or

clearing. Nibourg added he felt no tree

should ever be located in a Stettler

County ditch or right-of-way.

Board member Dave Grover agreed

with Nibourg, pointing out Stettler

County has brushing equipment and

that if residents want trees they should

be located on private property, not the

right-of-way.

Board member Justin Stevens noted

he felt simply spraying trees was not

getting at the root of the problem and

clearing was the

answer.

Nibourg

responded only so

much brushing

can be done per

year but perhaps

Stettler County’s

budget needs

more money for

brushing.

Director of

Agriculture

Services Quentin

Beaumont

responded to a

photograph displayed

at the

meeting which

showed a high

wall of trees in a

Stettler County

ditch, the front

row of which had

been sprayed

with herbicide.

Beaumont

stated that

strategy buys

time and keeps

the young growth

from the edges of

the road and he

has found it wiser

to spray first then

clear the dead

material.

Beaumont asked

that board members

to clarify

their desires.

The board

unanimously

passed a resolution

that the staff

go back to handling

ditch trees

as previously

instructed and

budgeted for.

Beaumont

responded his

department will

go back to ensure trees previously

sprayed are under

control.

It was noted several times

during discussion that trees

growing in ditches can

affect county roads and

impede producers from

hauling equipment.

Weed inspections

During Beaumont’s regular

report, board members

heard weed inspections and

issues are ongoing. He

stated in his report to the

board that weed inspections

on lease lands, the Red Deer

River banks and residential

subdivisions are ongoing,

while his department is

completing seven outstanding

weed notices.

Chair Les

Stulberg asked if

those seven

notices signified

a large number to

which Beaumont

responded yes,

seven is a bit high

for this time of

year.

He stated that

the vast majority

of property

owners address

weed concerns

but some people

take a bit longer

to comply than

others.

Stulberg asked

about the water level on the

Red Deer River. Beaumont

responded it’s above average

for this time of year but the

flow is dropping a bit.

Board members discussed

a photo included in

Beaumont’s report that

showed common tansy, a

noxious weed, growing in

numbers on the banks of the

Red Deer River. Beaumont

stated that the provincial

government provides $5,000

per year for that which usually

covers costs because the

main expenses are tied to

labour and travel.

Board members accepted

Beaumont’s report for

information.
