"Now when I hear of, or read about someone lost or seriously injured at their workplace, I immediately think of the enormous domino effect that it has. The families and friends, co-workers, first responders, and medical professionals are just the first in a very long line of those who share the burden of trauma."- Councillor Lorne Jackson

The Sir John Franklin Junior High Band from Calgary, Alberta held a free one hour concert in Central Park behind Town Hall on Friday, April 29 from 11:00 am to noon.  The temperature was only a few degrees above freezing. The chill weather may have deterred some people from attending, but the young group of approximately 50 students still had a respectable crowd of about 20 people attend and the crowd appreciated their musicality.  The weather also made tuning a challenge, something you don't have to think about when you only perform indoors. The group were well rehearsed, and played well despite any obstacles, proving their spirit and willingness to share their love of music.

Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village (KBPV) is located in downtown Pincher Creek. Many think the entrance building is the whole of the museum grounds but it is only the start. The village is contained on close to seven acres and hosts over 24,000 artifacts throughout 25 historical and museum buildings. One of the many highlights of the grounds are the several vegetable and flower gardens, fruit trees and other botanical delights. During the National Day of Mourning on April 28, it was a dreary damp day in Pincher Creek, yet still there was beauty and reflection to be found on the KBPV grounds.

Doctor Assisted Dying is one of the most important and difficult issues I have had to address during my time as a Member of Parliament.

Canadian children get a D-minus on Participaction score card

Sonya Brown, Heath Promotion Co-ordinator, Alberta Health Services

Scraped knees, bruises and worn-out running shoes - that’s what children are made of. Unfortunately, this statement is become less true as we see an increase in sedentary behavior and a decrease in physical activity.

“The biggest risk is keeping your kids indoors,” says Dr. Mark Tremblay, director of the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute). Dr. Tremblay was one of the lead authors of the Participaction report card, which has given Canada a poor grade when it comes to physical activity of children and youth.

Treasured recipes

Joyce Sasse, Spiritual Gleanings

It might be quickest to “Google” a recipe, but no screen-display carries the meaning we find in a recipe card marked “Aunt Clara’s Cocktail Crisps”.

That card brings with it special memories of the proud farmer and grandmother who expressed her best self through the food she served. I recall, having given a 5-year-old great granddaughter a blank paged “recipe book”, watching the younger pretend she was writing Granny’s recipe down while Granny was doing the baking. First class mentoring.

Herky Cutler releases book on organizational fitness

Herky Cutler

Josh Davis - On April 12, 2016, Pincher Creek Municipal Library held a book release for Herky Cutler’s book on organizational performance 'Get F.I.T Go Far!'.  Cutler said he wrote the book, which is geared towards organizational leaders from CEOs to managers, in the library. Herky briefly explained what FIT stands for that evening. “The F is future, and that relates to what do organizations have to do now to prepare for the future. The I is identity, and that has to do with the organizations culture. And it is team, so what does an organization have to do to build its team?”

“Organizational fitness was what I want to speak about, and write about,” said Cutler. “And when I googled organizational there’s very few people that do it. In fact, if you google speakers on organizational fitness, I’m the only one that comes up.” Cutler said that he came up with the acronym and the three part structure later, in order to avoid confusion over the subject matter.

“One of the things that’s important, I think, is having a strategic plan,” said Cutler of the chapters related to planning for the future. He said that an easy way to test for an effective strategic plan is to ask employees what their mission is. If they aren’t able to answer the question, it is a sign of a poor strategic plan. Cutler said that these plans are often created in a way that not everybody has input and buy-in. “In fact, I’ve been in some school staffs, for example, where we’ve been pushed to come up with a mission statement that said certain things that the administration wanted it to say. When you’re pushing me, I automatically push back. So when the strategic plan came to be, I didn’t want to be a part of it.”

Cutler said that the identity section of the book is about corporate culture. “The identity part is how does an organization develop its culture, and its purpose, and how does it sell that, or explain it to its staff, and then how does it run itself around that purpose” said Cutler. “Every decision that’s made by the leader should relate to an organizations purpose. And every staff decision should relate to that purpose.” Cutler said that policies and procedure manuals are often too large to serve an organizations purpose, and that many of the most successful Fortune 500 companies do away with thick policy manuals for that reason. He also said that managing the five generations of workers in the modern workplace creates interesting issues for management when they try and treat every worker the same.

“Team is the most important part to me,” said Cutler. “When times are tough, what gets cut? Its things like team building, things like professional development. And for me, that’s the worst thing you can cut.” Cutler said that team building activities are crucial to develop morale, but that they should be fun activities that relate to the work taking place, and the skills used in the workplace. He said that when you have a team that works well together, likes each other, and understands each other’s strengths and weaknesses has better customer service. “What manager in their right mind wouldn’t want to spend time and money to help their team develop in that way?”

The self-published book is available online for paperback and e-reader.

MD of Pincher Creek council opposes the centralization of industrial property assessment


Josh Davis

On Tuesday April 12 MD of Pincher Creek No. 9 Director of Finance and Administration Matt Bonertz delivered a report to MD Council, supporting the position of the Alberta’s Assessors Association against the centralization of industrial property assessment. “The background is that the province initiated the Stakeholder Advisory Committee to look at the centralization of industrial assessment in the province,” explained Bonertz. “They came back suggesting that the industrial assessment be brought underneath the provinces wing again, rather than left in the hands of our private assessors. And the Alberta Assessors Association, along with a couple of municipalities, have sent letters in objecting to the findings of this committee, and suggesting that the assessment process stays as it is.”Bonertz said that he believes the current method of assessment is in the best interest of the MD, calling it more reactive to local needs and conditions, and more accommodating of ratepayer issues.

Crestview Highlights for March 2016


Greetings from the Residents at Crestview Lodge - March is the beginning of our fantastic outings for the year. We will be trying to take advantage of all the good weather we can during our adventures out and about. To start off, we visited the Frank Slide Interpretive Center, it was a small group but we had a great time. We were lucky to have a guide from the center show us about. The staff were so helpful answering all our questions and helping us in and out of our seats when we watched the movies. We were quite happy that we went before peak season for our trip, otherwise we may not have had the opportunity to have such great one on one assistance with the wonderful staff at the center. Big thanks to all the staff at Frank Slide Interpretive Center!

Toni Lucas - The Municipal District of Pincher Creek No. 9 and the Town of Pincher Creek worked together to host the eighth annual Come and Go Volunteer Luncheon at the Pincher Creek Community Hall on Friday, April 15. The luncheon was open to all those who volunteer in our area and those who are curious about the many volunteer opportunities available. Over 260 volunteers flocked to the 11th annual luncheon, representing a diverse segment of our population.


Crestview Lodge well represented at event

What all the attendees had in common is a desire to help this community be a better place for themselves, their families, and others. Without people like this and all that they do, we would be reduced in almost every capacity of our existence as a community. There are volunteers out there supporting this community every moment of every day, in every aspect of human endeavor, from the mundane, to the most uplifting, to the most tragic and come from all walks of life.

Group Group Youth's Lynne Teneycke
Mayor Don Anderberg and Reeve Brian Hammond both addressed the crowd. They talked about how the dedication of individuals improve the quality of life for the overall community. Mayor Don Anderberg said he is often amazed at how much work goes into this community. "The impossible for us just takes us a while longer." 

Reeve Hammond explained how recognizing volunteerism started to recognize the efforts women were making on the home front during World War II. He suggested, "Imagine how different the community would be without the contributions made by volunteers."

Lundbreck Citizens Council awarded two plaques to deserving members of the community: Weldon Vickers earned the 2016 Lundbreck Senior Citizen of the Year award.

I really appreciate this very, very much." Lee Farough was awarded Lundbreck's Citizen of the Year plaque. However he could not attend the event itself.

Hosts from the Town and MD of Pincher Creek: Marie Everts, Rhonda Oczkowski, Adam Grose, Katrina Oczkowski, and Tara Cryderman

Booths lined the main floor representing a variety of organizations in the area.

Re-setting relationships

Joyce Sasse, Spiritual Gleanings

While we were talking about how Canada’s Commission on Truth and Reconciliation touches us, our Zimbabwean minister related a story from South Africa.

At the “end” of apartheid, all South African citizens were invited to make confession of their involvement in racist activities.

One man, who worked for the Secret Service, killed another man because he was an activist. But it was actually because of the colour of the victim’s skin.

MP John Barlow on tabling of Doctor Assisted Dying legislation

  • "The Supreme Court of Canada has found the current Criminal Code prohibition on physician assisted dying to be constitutionally invalid."
John Barlow, Member of Parliament for Foothills

Official Opposition Deputy Critic for Employment, Workforce and Labour and Member of Parliament for Foothills, John Barlow, is encouraged to see the Liberal government's proposed Doctor Assisted Dying legislation encompasses a number of recommendations made by the Conservative Party. Key for Barlow is that the proposed legislation does not provide access for minors, does not compel physicians to participate in euthanasia, and creates some of the necessary safeguards to ensure the safety of those who are most vulnerable including those with mental health challenges.
