Paradise: God’s garden and ours


Joyce Sasse, Spiritual Gleanings - According to the earliest stories, God created a magnificent Garden of Eden and turned it over to Adam and Eve.  However, because these humans were not prepared to handle the knowledge associated with Eden, they were separated from the Paradise that surrounded them.  Through the centuries, although Old Testament believers tried, they could not reconnect with what was lost. The Prophet Amos, for example, longed to have his people “seek good and not evil”, but reality eluded them.

Letter to the Editor: Questions for Pincher Creek Town Council revisited

D. Gray -  As many Pincher Creek residents know, there was a Town Hall meeting on March 29th, 2017 which was placed conveniently on YouTube.  At that time, many people brought forward some integral questions and concerns. Some of those were provided to the CAO. Which in turn, answers and follow ups were to occur.  I was one of those residents that raised some questions and concerns. I like others, were deferred to the CAO by the Mayor. To date I as a resident taxpayer, have not heard from anyone from administration or Council. No phone call or a letter. Not even a reply in local media. Why not?

Talking tobacco with teens

Marissa Robinson
Marissa Robinson, Public Health student intern, AHS - In the not-so-distant past, tobacco use among teens was not uncommon - quite the opposite really. Now, in 2017, you may believe that teen tobacco-use is a thing of the past, especially considering that most Canadians have a much better understanding of the health consequences associated with tobacco use.

The biggest day in history


Pastor Chris Ney - What day do you think of when someone asks you what was the biggest day in history? Some will say the end on WWI or WWII, other will say when my team won the championship for the first time ever. It gets celebrated with grand parties and parades, as the people from all over cheer for the victory. The problem is in all these cases that victory had its price, sacrifice, toll of people. I am not comparing war to sports, and we all no there are no winners in war. The reality is that there is a lot loss in any victory.

Let loose in the world


The Ascension (Gustave Doré courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)

Joyce Sasse, Spiritual Gleanings -
“Is he dead?” Pilate’s wife asked the soldier after he returned from the tomb. She had taken notice of this Jesus of Nazareth when he was brought before her husband earlier in the week. Now she’d heard strange rumours and wondered what the truth really was. “No, Madame,” the soldier replied. “He is not dead.”

“Not dead!” She could hardly believe her ears. “Not dead! Then where is he?”

“Let loose in the world, Madame,” came the reply. “Let loose in the world where nothing can corrupt his truth.”

Mustangs athletes prepare for upcoming ABC Bowl


Coach Jeremy Nelson - When you think of springtime sports in Pincher Creek you might think of baseball, soccer, rugby or even softball. Not for a select group, spring sports means football, football, football. Yes you read that right football.  A handful of Mustang football players are soon to be reading playbooks, learning the new plays, hitting the gridiron and practicing all weekend. Not only that, but some local coaches will be right there beside them.

Mustangs well represented at Alberta's ABC Border Bowl victory

Former Mustangs at the 2016 ABC Border Bowl:

Originally published January 18, 2017.  Updated with Riley Sokownin interview.

Chris Davis - Way back on December 10 Alberta won the annual 2016 ABC Border Bowl Current Stars Game at Chilliwack BC's Exhibition Park, an event that organizers now refer to as  the "2016 ABC Snow Bowl".  The game featured athletes in grades 11 and 12 from Alberta and British Columbia.  The two teams played in a foot and a half to two feet of snow, with the snow still falling.  Alberta won 8-6.  Three young men familiar to Pincher Creek Mustangs fans were on the Alberta team: Austin Bruder (Left Tackle Offence, Pincher Creek Mustangs). Riley Sokownin (QB Lethbridge's Winston Churchill Bulldogs), and Thane Buckingham (Strong Side Linebacker, Taber's WR Rebels).  All three began their football careers as Pincher Creek Mustangs.  Also in attendance was Dennis Sokownin, who coached all three nine years ago.

April is Canada’s National Oral Health month

Jenna Simmons, Dental Hygienist
Jenna Simmons, Dental Hygienist, Alberta Health Services - April is Canada’s National Oral Health month. Good oral health is important and can relate to good overall health. Oral pain, tooth decay, missing teeth and infections can decrease a person’s quality of life.  Tooth decay in children is prevalent in today’s society and there are many people that do not view this as an issue. Missing teeth or pain from decay can cause a child to be unable to eat. This can relate to lack of nutrition which can decrease a child’s overall well-being.

Alberta chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers supports direction of new Castle Parks


Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Alberta Chapter - A group of Alberta hunters and anglers are congratulating the government on the protection of the Castle Provincial and Wildland Parks and supporting the phase-out of off-highway vehicle use from the new parks.  The Alberta Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers are united in their belief that the freedom to hunt and fish depends on habitat. While many enjoy hunting and fishing on a range of landscapes, there is something special – even magical – about hunting deep in the backcountry or fishing on a remote river.

Gossiping about Annora Brown

Joyce Sasse - Annora Brown wrote, in her introduction to Old Man’s Garden, that her intention was to “gossip about the flowers of the west” because she wanted to “gather under one cover some of the legend and lore (about them) that is to be found lying in odd corners.”  Now, in our Life & Legacy Project, we want to gossip about Annora Brown. We want to bring together the bits and pieces of her life and lore and memorabilia that made her such an amazing person.

Linden Willms tells Multicultural Friendship Group of his visits to Kikwit, Africa

Linden Willms
Toni Lucas - Pincher Creek's Linden Willms shared his experiences from his time in the Africa, spanning over 40 years of trips, at the Pincher Creek Multicultural Friendship Group (MCFG)  potluck dinner on March 25.  He has been visiting Kikwit in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa since 1974. He originally went on a mission for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) for an agricultural project.  He has visited this same area three more times in the last 6 years.  Willms said "Every country in Africa is unique, and the Congo is very unique."  Originally Willms went because MCC sponsored agriculture development projects in the Congo.  Willms and his wife Del spent five years in the Kikwit area trying to help the people hands-on through teaching agriculture and animal husbandry so the locals would be able to take over the project when they left.

Comment: Immediately implement the SSRP as it was released in 2014


In March, Russell Bruder B.Sc. "Responsible Recreationalist" wrote the following to council for the MD of Pincher Creek regarding Castle region issues (excerpted):

"It is time to put a stop to the biased protectionist movement in the Castle Region (and the rest of Alberta). It is time for all responsible recreationalists (motorized or not), community members, landowners, user groups (grazing, hunting, trapping, fishing), and members of industry to speak out against those groups and individuals seeking to lock up the wilderness to assure it meets the needs of their value system.

Letter to the Editor: Fact checking the OHV story


Lorne Fitch, Professional Biologist - When Winston Churchill was accused of lying, he termed his absence of truth a “terminological inexactitude”, the Trump administration has coined “alternative facts” and what the OHV lobby engages in ranges from ”careless with the truth” to outright whoopers. It’s worth disassembling some of the whoopers told by some in the OHV group.

Walk the talk


Pastor Chris Ney -
Do you remember the song that says "Be careful little eyes what you see, be careful little ears what you hear, be careful little feet where you go, and be careful little tongue what you say, there is a father up above looking down on you in love so be careful little one how you live"? When I first heard the song I thought it was nice gave some warning about how to live but also thought it was unrealistic. There is however some truth to this song; that we are supposed to be careful on what we do because it is a demonstration of who we are and what we believe.

Words matter


Joyce Sasse, Spititual Gleanings - At any time, our choice of words can make a difference. I’m thinking, today, of our new minister’s use of the word kin-dom – like in the prayer “Thy kin-dom come”.  For me “Kingdom”, when referring to our Christian Faith, has always been too harsh a term. In Biblical times the term best fitted a description of the wealth, power and corruption of the Roman Empire. Wasn’t Jesus speaking about the very antithesis of this?

The Wandering Jew

Phil Burpee
Phil Burpee - Given the troublesome nature of the times, and especially the volatile relationship between and among the three great houses of the Sons of Abraham, the Christians, Moslems and Jews, it is well perhaps to hearken back to certain foundational motifs which still arguably motivate a great deal of what passes for geopolitics these days. Because it tends to be the foundational race motifs that noxiously bubble up when populism and jingoistic noise come to replace discourse and reasoned debate. This is understandable and not surprising, but it is no less dangerous for that exactly because these enduring and vindictive themes have been the source of crusade, pogrom, inquisition, annihilation, banishment and war for many centuries, and they have lost none of their volatility today. Consider the following.
