Setting The Record Straight

Reality-Check2
Editor:

An important detail omitted from a front page article entitled; “Municipal Inspection report expected in September.” and a related ‘Our View’ editorial; “Inspection results needed” in the March 15 edition of the St. Albert Gazette requires due attention. While it is true that a motion was put forth and carried on July 4, 2016 by Councillor Cathy Heron requesting an inspection by Municipal Affairs it was not the initial action in the matter.

In a previously published Letter to the Editor; “Not entirely their idea…” (Gazette; July 13, 2016) I emphasized the fact that numerous requests from individuals and groups of citizens calling for the intervention of the Minister of Municipal Affairs including a thoroughly documented submission by the St. Albert Citizens’ Coalition, were delivered to the provincial government much earlier, in 2015.

In the article referenced above, the supporting rationale for the motion in question was conveyed as follows: “She cited concerns about friction among council members and staff, council stepping too far into day-to-day administration issues and staff safety concerns.” While these points may initially have seemed to possess a certain degree of validity they have not withstood the test of time. It is my contention that the genuine issues are indeed based in reality and much more systemic in nature.

It is in the best interests of all St. Albert citizens that careful and thorough scrutiny on the part of Mr. George Cuff and his staff during the course of their municipal inspection, produce meaningful and lasting results.

Rott'n Dan Shinnan - As one of our areas most well known faces on festival and music room stages across Alberta, Canada,  and as far as Memphis, Dan is best known as the front man and harmonicist in funky blues groove band Boogie Patrol.

Dan has a natural knack as a high energy, electrifying entertainer with a stylistically recognizable voice and is considered amongst the best for his incredible harmonica and fronting skills. He has also received many invites from numerous other acts as a sideman and or frontman as well as much studio work.

Dan has worked diligently since the day I met him at the Blues on Whyte in the mid 2000's and his hard work has definitely payed off for himself and his band mates as they've gained high recognition from fans across Canada, numerous Blues societies, The Memphis Blues Challenge and The Maple Blues Awards just to name a few.

He also co-hosts a well established weekly open stage in Edmonton. I have featured Dan numerous times and we're always happy to have him back. -

Ooops!

Ooops!
A 45-year-old woman had a heart attack and was immediately transported to the hospital. While she was in surgery she had a supernatural, near-death experience. She met God and asked him: “Has my time come?”

“No,” he answered, “you have 43 years, 2 months and 8 more days to live.”

After she recovered, the woman decided to stay at the hospital and do some plastic surgery on her face, a liposuction, breast enlargement and abdominal fat removal. She also called a hair stylist to change her hairstyle and an orthodontist to perform a ‘teeth lifting.’ She figured, if she had so much time in front of her, she should live in the best way possible.

Not until she had recovered from her last surgery did she leave the hospital, wearing a new dress with matching heels. She went to cross the street and was run over by an ambulance.

While crossing the gates to heaven, she reached God. “You told me I had 43 more years! Why didn’t you save me from the ambulance?” she demanded.

And he answered: “I didn’t recognize you.”

Uber Suspends Self-Driving Car Program After Arizona Crash

Uber Suspends Self-Driving Car
(Reuters) – Uber suspended its pilot program for driverless cars on Saturday after a vehicle equipped with the nascent technology crashed on an Arizona roadway, the ride-hailing company and local police said.

The accident, the latest involving a self-driving vehicle operated by one of several companies experimenting with autonomous vehicles, caused no serious injuries, Uber said.

Even so, the company said it was grounding driverless cars involved in a pilot program in Arizona, Pittsburgh and San Francisco pending the outcome of investigation into the crash on Friday evening in Tempe.

A Realist's Guide To Spring Cleaning

A Realist's Guide To Spring Cleaning
Is your self esteem so high that it needs to be taken down a peg or two? If so, head over to the Good Housekeeping Institute's cleaning checklist. Broken down into daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly chores, reading it likely will make you feel thoroughly insufficient and send you crying into your crumpled, unwashed bedsheets.

That was my take on it, anyway. Apparently in between juggling a full-time job, two young kids, after-school activities, meal planning and Easter and birthday preparations, I'm supposed to make time for cleaning the shower daily and the cupboards monthly. You can go ahead and file these under "not gonna happen."

Good Grief, Now What?

Decision - Alberta Liberal Leadership

March 29, 2017 T 10:36 PM


It is with varied emotions that I share that with nominations closing March 31 at 5:00 pm with respect to the Alberta Liberal Leadership contest, I have decided that I will not be letting my name remain standing for the ALP Leader role and that effective immediately all activities in this regard will cease.

As such, I am requesting of Elections Alberta and the Alberta Liberal Leadership Party to have my name removed as a Candidate.

While many may wonder the reason(s) for this decision, the reasons will be kept private and I will provide “no comment” as to these varied questions and associated speculation.

I wish to thank the hundreds who have assisted, volunteered and donated time; the support has been overwhelming and appreciated.

To the Party and prospective Candidates, I wish everyone the very best as Albertans are amidst unprecedented and uncertain political times.

Yours sincerely,

Nolan Crouse

Nutrition: The Curious Nature Of Cruciferous Vegetables

Nutrition-The Curious Nature
Cruciferous vegetables, which are in the Brassica or cabbage family of plants, have been promoted as a staple of a healthful diet.

In fact, consumption of this group of veggies — such as broccoli, kale and collard greens — is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. Despite their numerous health benefits, many people are not eating enough leafy greens.

Have Councillors Damaged
Re-Election Opportunities?


Yesterday we told you about councillors Brodhead, Heron, Osborne and the mayor who all voted against a motion to allow the public to express their opinion on spending their own money and defeated it in a 4 to 3 vote. You can read the story
here.

Here are the results of our poll and it looks like they have sure decreased their chances of re-election with their ‘we know better than you’ attitude.

Rott'n Dan Shinnan - As one of our areas most well known faces on festival and music room stages across Alberta, Canada,  and as far as Memphis, Dan is best known as the front man and harmonicist in funky blues groove band Boogie Patrol.

Dan has a natural knack as a high energy, electrifying entertainer with a stylistically recognizable voice and is considered amongst the best for his incredible harmonica and fronting skills. He has also received many invites from numerous other acts as a sideman and or frontman as well as much studio work.

Dan has worked diligently since the day I met him at the Blues on Whyte in the mid 2000's and his hard work has definitely payed off for himself and his band mates as they've gained high recognition from fans across Canada, numerous Blues societies, The Memphis Blues Challenge and The Maple Blues Awards just to name a few.

He also co-hosts a well established weekly open stage in Edmonton. I have featured Dan numerous times and we're always happy to have him back. -

The Philosophy Of Burma Shave

Burma Shave
For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's to the 1960's.

Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old two lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each contained one line of a four line couplet ... and the obligatory fifth sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.

Around the curve
Lickety-split
Beautiful car
Wasn't it?
Burma Shave

No matter the price
No matter how new
The best safety device
In the car is you
Burma Shave

A guy who drives
A car wide open
Is not thinkin'
He's just hopin'
Burma Shave

Stop Speeding, Win the Lottery: One Man's Idea to Make Safe Driving Fun

Stop Speeding
If speed limit signs aren't enough to slow down lead-footed drivers, what about the promise of cold, hard cash?

The motivation of a cash prize to the safest drivers is behind a California man's winning entry in The Fun Theory, an advertising contest sponsored by Volkswagen and advertising network DDB Worldwide Communications.

The idea? Put a speed monitor on a busy highway. But instead of simply ticketing the fastest drivers, the monitor would capture an image of the license plates of the drivers who obey the speed limit, then enter them into a lottery.

More on ABC News.

'We Know Better Than You':
St. Albert Councillors Don’t
Value The Public’s Opinion


During the March 13, 2017 council meeting, councillor Bob Russell made a motion that read: "That Administration prepare a ballot or ballots of questions that will enable voters to vote on major capital projects contemplated for 2018 - 2021."

Russell’s motion was designed to give residents the opportunity to tell council, by way of questions added to the ballot in the September civic election, their wishes on building new facilities in the next few years. The questions would have been non-binding, but would be used as information by council and would incur no extra costs.

As usual, the Fab Four, councillors Brodhead, Heron, Osborne and the mayor voted against the motion and defeated it in a 4 to 3 vote. No surprise there. Councillors Hughes, MacKay and Russell supported the motion.

voting record plebiscite

The lame duck mayor’s vote doesn’t matter as he will not be running in the fall election. As a matter of fact, he may not even be mayor after July 26 if the courts rule against him in a pecuniary interest suit brought against him by local resident Steve Stone.

The other three councillors though, are a major concern to taxpayers with their vote to stifle any input from the public on how their money will be spent.

ch-WesBrodhead ch-CathyHeron ch-TimOsborne

It would be very surprising if all three (From left above, Brodhead, Heron, Osborne) did not run again for council, so let’s assume they will run in some capacity.

Are these the kinds of people St. Albert residents want representing them? Councillors who are not willing to allow residents a say in how their money will be spent in the future?

Voters should think long and hard before supporting any one of these three to return for another term on council in any capacity.

We think their behaviour is so bizarre and outright insulting to the taxpayers of St. Albert, that we vow to run this story again, every single day of the election campaign this fall, including daily on Facebook and Twitter as well.

don caricature small copy
It is important we remind the voting public who supports them, and who does not. These three councillors certainly do not value your opinion as a taxpayer. Their condescending 'we know better than you' attitude is frankly sickening.

that'sallfolks
And now a short poll to see how taxpayers may react to this type of decision by these three councillors.

5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Feel Bad About Eating Butter

5 Reasons Why You
Good news, everyone who likes delicious food. Butter isn't bad for you anymore. Some people, like author Elaine Khosrova, even think it's good for you. "It's the fake stuff we try to substitute for butter that's doing us serious harm," she writes in her new book "Butter, A Rich History." Opt for organic, unsalted butter made from local, grass-fed cows and slather (in moderation) on the benefits. Here are five reasons you need to eat butter.

See all five here.

Your iPhone's Dirtier Than A Toilet — And So Are These Other Everyday Items

Your iPhone's Dirtier
Then next time you answer your smartphone and press it firmly to your face, consider this: Are you touching fecal matter right now?

Quite possibly. Researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine found fecal matter on one out of every six smartphones in a 2011 study. Add to that the work of Charles Gerba, a famed University of Arizona microbiologist who found cell phones carry 10 times the bacteria of most toilet seats.

Familiar items we touch every day, from cellphones to kitchen sinks, swarm with far more germs than our toilets. And while 80 percent of infections come from what we touch, we rarely clean these ordinary items as often as our porcelain thrones.

See all the items on USA Today.
