They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another housepiant. DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their FAVOURITE chair.must try this on their bed. DAY 765 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Hmmm. Not working according to plan. DAY 768 -1 am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a burning foamy chemical called shampoo." What sick minds could invent such a liquid? My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth. DAY 771 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the foul odor of the glass tubes they call "beer". More importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage. DAY 774 -1 am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand as got to be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of time.R CiCnrdxrv^ Mv ifariMjWfo. Sometime on September 9th, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning sovereign in the long history of the monarchy in Great Britain and the Commonwealth. On that day, she will surpass that of Queen Victoria, who reigned for over 63 years, dying in 1901 at age 81. (Victoria gave her name to the Victorian Age which covered most of the 19th century with the industrial revolution, and many significant cultural and scientific changes.) The Queen came to the throne in February, 1952, on the death her father, King George VI, who died at an early age due, in part, to the strain placed on him by WWII. During Elizabeth II’s lifetime ( so far) the British parliament has seen 18 prime ministers. Her first P.M. in 1953 was Sir Winston Churchill. Remarkably, she has see Hitler. Stalin, Roosevelt, DeGaulle. Kennedy, and Thatcher depart from the world stage. In Canada, she has been served by 11 Prime Ministers from Louis St. Laurent to Stephen Harper. Probably the only world leader still in office who served (bravely, as an ambulance driver) in World War II, her reign has seen a vast range of technological advances, medical breakthroughs, and increased speeds in transportation and communication. Elizabeth II will go down in history as the first British monarch to send an email and to send a message to the moon. The Queen is portrayed on the currency of 45 countries and is certainly one of the most recognizable people in the modern world. September 9th will be but another day in a lifetime of service to the Empire and Commonwealth, a destiny which she has lived with since the abdication of her uncle, Edward VIII, in 1936 made her Heiress Apparent. On her 21st birthday, Her Majesty pledged herself to a life of service: "I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong." That life has turned out to be long, and at age 89 she has long reigned over us and we pray for her continued health and happiness. There is a famous picture taken of an elderly Queen Victoria with her immediate successors, King Edward VII, George V and Edward VIII. The Queen now has her three successors in Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George. The succession to the throne is now set for most of the 21st century. Following is a prayer that has been put out for use on the Sunday nearest to September r>th, giving thanks for the life and service of Her Majesty: Almighty God, who has set our gracious sovereign Queen Elizabeth upon the throne of this realm, and given her to surpass all others in the years of her reign: Receive our heartfelt thanks for her service to her people, confirm and encourage her in the continuance of the same, and keep her in thy heavenly wisdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who took the form of a servant for our sake, and reigns now in glory with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. God Save the Queen. September Services: + Sunday 13th - 9:00 AM Sunday 27th - 9:00 AM Stc tjcru, Ux. CMam'cMJ.Arrowwood Cooperative Association P.O.

On that date, our Monarch will have served us and the Commonwealth for the longest period in our modern history. On September 9 at 12:00PM to 12:30PM, at the Milo Community Hall, join us and 3,500 other Canadian Municipalities to celebrate and share a tribute to The Queen on this special day.

With all my Stuff, I Simply can't think of anything I need, So if you like, you can ju$t Send me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you. Love, Your $on. A week later.the response from Dad arrived: Dear Son, I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics and oceaNOgraghy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task and you can never study eNOugh. Love, Dad. In the beginning, God created heaven and earth. Shortly thereafter God was in receipt of a notice to show cause why he shouldn't be cited for failure to file an environmental impact statement. He was granted a temporary planning permit for the project, but was stymied by a Cease and Desist Order for the earthly part. At the hearing, God was asked why he began his earthly project in the first place. He replied that he just liked to be creative. Then God said, "Let there be light." Officials immediately demanded to know how the light would be made. Would it require strip mining? What about thermal pollution? God explained that the light would come from a huge ball of fire, and provisional approval was granted with the proviso that no smoke would result. The authorities demanded the issuance of a building permit, and (to conserve energy) required that the light be left off half the time. God agreed, saying he would call the light "Day" and the darkness "Night." Officials replied that they were only interested in protecting the environment, not in semantics. God said, "Let the earth bring forth green herb and such as many seed." The EPA agreed, so long as only native seed was used. Then God said, "Let waters bring forth creeping creatures having life; and the fowl that may fly over the earth." Officials pointed out this would require approval from the Department of Game coordinated with the Heavenly Wildlife Federation and the Audubongelic Society. Everything went along smoothly until God declared that he intended to complete the project in six days. Officials informed God it would take at least 200 days to review his many waiver applications and environmental impact statements. After that there would have to be a public hearing, and then there would be a 10-12 month probationary period before. At this point, God created Hell. Insurance. A cowboy was trying to buy a health insurance policy. The insurance agent was going down the list of standard questions. "Ever have an accident?" "Nope, nary a one.” "None? You've never had any accidents." "Nope. Ain't never had one. Never." "Well, you said on this form you were bit by a snake once. Wouldn't you consider that an accident?" "Heck, no. That dang varmint bit me on purpose." The Auction. One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on a parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid - the parrot was his at last! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!" "Don't worry." said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?" Rain. A visitor to Texas once asked, "Does it ever rain out here?" A rancher quickly answered, "Yes, it does." "When?" asked the visitor. "Do you remember that part in the Bible where it rained for 40 days and 40 nights?" The visitor replied, "Yes, I'm familiar with Noah's flood." "Well," the rancher puffed up, "we got about half an inch that time."Memorial Donation for Denika Starr Fitzpatrick Presented to Milo Library Wes and Twyla Fitzpatrick presented a cheque for $3600.00 to Library Manager Joanne Monner August 20th in memory of their daughter/sister Denika Starr Fitzpatrick. This money was raised the weekend of Milo’s 75th Anniversary in 2006. Prairie Perfection Catering (Allan and Colleen Bartsch) approached them with the idea of raising money in Denika’s name by setting up an ice cream stand throughout the weekend event. The Fitzpatrick’s were very thankful to them for their efforts and the Library wishes to thank them as well. Denika’s name will be added to the Memorial plaque and a decision by the Board will be made on what else will be done.Sept 2015 Milo Library Milo Library Chinook Arch Best Lenders Adult Fic­tion for August: 1.

You'll find yourself rooting for the snarky and impulsive but ultimately loveable Mattie. At the heart of this tale is a beautifully unraveled mystery that has led Mattie to her current circumstances, ultimately bringing her to her first real home." —Patricia Kline-Millard, Bedford Public Library, Bedford, NH The top ten books published this month that librarians across the country love. SEPTEMBER 2015 MAKE ME A Jack Reacher Novel by Lee Child (Delacorte Press) "Jack Reacher is back. Jack gets off a train at an isolated town. Soon, he is learning much more about the town, and its residents are learn­ing not to mess around with Jack Reacher. Readers new to this series will find this book a good starting point, and fans will be pleased to see Jack again." —Jenna Persick, Chester County Library, Exton, PA Thieves HOUSE OF THIEVES A Novel by Charles Belfoure (Sourcebooks Landmark) "Belfoure's intriguing novel is set in Gilded Age New York City. John Cross, head of the family, finds an unexpected talent for planning robberies, while his wife and children also discover their inner criminals. The historical details and setting evoke old New York. I enjoyed every minute of their escapades." —Barbara Clark-Greene, Groton Public Library, Groton, CT FATES AND FURIES A Novel by Lauren Groff (Riverhead Books) “Fates and Furies is a modern portrait of marriage. Lotto Satterwhite is the center, the hub around which all the characters revolve in the first half of the book. In the second half of the book, the lens turns to Lotto's wife Mathilde, and her side of the lopsided partnership gives us a totally different view. Groff is a master of language. It's not a gentle read. But it's magnificent." —Kelly Currie, Delphi Public Library, Delphi, IN DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY by Bill Clegg (Gallery/Scout Press) "Clegg's devastatingly beautiful fiction debut is the portrait of a community in the aftermath of a tragedy. June Reid, the broken woman at the epicenter of the novel, is struggling with a loss so profound that she is unable to see beyond her grief, unaware that it has touched many people. Clegg tells their stories with heartbreaking sensitivity and insight." —Mary Coe, Fairfield Woods Branch Library, Fairfield, CT THE GATES OF EVANGELINE by Hester Young (G.P. Putnam's Sons) "Journalist Charlie Cates goes to gloomy, swampy Louisiana to write a book about the disappearance of a young child. Her research uncovers family secrets, lies, and clandestine affairs. This first book in a new series is incred­ibly suspenseful, with a vivid setting, a supernatural tinge, and an intricate plot that keeps you guessing until the end." —Anbolyn Potter, Chandler Public Library, Chandler, AZ FURIOUSLY HAPPY A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson (Flatiron Books) "Lawson's hilarious memoir is a romp between absurdity and despondency. Passages alternate from ridiculously funny stories of her life to episodes of her sometimes debilitating depres­sion. Lawson embraces living life, rather than merely surviving it. Why be just happy when you can be furiously so? Recommended to fens of David Sedaris and Sloane Crosley." —PJ Gardiner, Wake County Public Libraries, Raleigh, NC THIS YOUR LIFE, HARRIET CHANCE! by Jonathan Evison (Algonquin Books) "Harriet Chance receives word that her recently deceased husband, Bernard, has won an Alaskan cruise. Deciding to go on the trip, she is given a letter from her close friend Mildred, with instructions not to open it until she is on the cruise. The contents of this letter shatter Harriet and she begins to reevaluate her life and her relationships." —Arleen Talley, Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation, Annapolis, MD GIRL WAITS WITH GUN by Amy Stewart (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) * When the Kopp sisters and their buggy are injured by Henry Kaufmann's car, Con­stance Kopp at first just wants him to pay the damages. As she pursues justice, she meets another of Kaufmann's victims, the young woman Lucy. Stewart creates fully developed charac­ters, including the heroine, Constance, who is fiercely independent as she faces down her fears. The time period and setting are important parts of the story as well, providing a glimpse of 1914 New Jersey." —Maggie Holmes, Richards Memorial Library, North Attleboro, MA —Kimberly McGee, Lake Travis Community Library, Austin, TX "A shunned detective is pulled back to Atlanta to solve some brutal murders that seem to be the work of a serial killer. Political intrigue, a fascinating time in this country's history, and a good old-fashioned murder mystery make this one fascinating read. This book asks the question: when a man has had everything taken away, will he still fight for what is right?" THE SCRIBE A Novel by Matthew Guinn (W.W. Norton & Company) Find out more at www.LibraryReads.orgVILLAGE OF ALBERTA August 29, 2015 Dear Residents & Ratepayers, The assessment appeal deadline for both villages falls at the end of this month. While there were a handful of assessment concerns that were addressed, the process was more or less straightforward with no surprises. Think of the total taxable assessment of each village as a whole pie with each individual property assessment constituting a slice of that pie. Assessment determines the share of the overall operating budget that must be paid by each property owner. The 2015 infrastructure work has been more or less completed in the Village of Arrowwood. We are now monitoring the drainage on 2nd Street West and will seek some minor modifications to ensure maximum movement of water. The ditches along Railway Avenue will require that top soil be re-graded along the banks and seeded to grass to prevent further erosion. We plan to seed a mixture of grass and barley to realize fast growth and cover. Infrastructure work in Milo is planned and could be undertaken as soon as September, continuing on until next year. Both village councils will be doing more detailed capital planning this fall. I was away for the first part of July and have been addressing a variety of matters that required more immediate attention over the summer. Milo’s Village Foreman, Daniel Greenwood, resigned his position in July and we have been undertaking maintenance with a casually employed work crew. While the finalization of the budget has been delayed for a few reasons, one consideration being made is whether or not Milo will continue to employ a part-time foreman. The council is also looking at ways to improve the operation of its water and waste water utility systems. Once the council is comfortable with the details of its organizational structure and budget, taxes will be issued. Sincerely, Christopher Northcott Chief Administrative OfficerCranioSacral Therapy is now available CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a “light touch” approach that involves gently first assessing the tension in soft tissues surrounding the major components of your central nervous system - primarily the head, spine and pelvic areas. Then I use proven body manipulation techniques to relieve stress from those areas, beginning with a touch as light as the weight of a nickel. Sessions are generally deeply relaxing, and create feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in areas being worked by the therapist. Chronic pain, particularly in the neck and back, and the related discomfort and life stress issues chronic pain causes, can be safely relieved. Think of this as a massage designed for your nervous system instead of muscle tissue. Please ask questions about CST! I welcome the opportunity to share the benefits of this therapy system with you. As a reminder, don’t forget that I’m now direct billing Alberta Blue Cross, AESBP, SunLife, Manulife, Great West Life, etc. Massages are available Fridays & Saturdays at Trends by T.C. Please feel free to contact me to book an appointment or to ask any questions.

With the designated theme as "Play" the children have been out and about making crafts and partaking in multiple games every Tuesday. With more children and different faces every time it has been a blast! Throughout the summer our program has also offered two other specifically themed days; Dinosaur Day and Pirate Day. On Dinosaur day the children started off reading funny books about Dinosaurs before they headed downstairs for an Archeological Discovery. There, the children pieced together their own unique and creative dinosaurs using bones that their instructor had dug up for them. These newly discovered species ranged from Ceilidh Kirk's "Dogosaur" (as seen on left) to Dallin Bertschy's "Threeheadosaurus". The second week of the program we had Kayta Brown and Jillian Krokosch from Chinook Arch come to our little library to host an Olympic themed day. The activities involved the children making flags for their own imaginary countries, reading books on sportsmanship, and designing their own games. We've had many fun and interesting days since then, and I'm thrilled to see that even children who may only be in the area for a couple days, are dropping in and joining our group for the day to partaking in our afternoon program. Pirate Day consisted of decorating hats and cardboard swords before heading outside for a Treasure Hunt. Each crew had to find and retrieve odd bits of treasure in a Scavenger Hunt like style and return their pieces back to their own pirate ships before the other teams completed their list. This was the last day that I myself was running the Summer Reading Program out of Milo, but I am happy to say that I had just as much fun as the children did and I hope they come back next summer.

A recently retired Nebraska farmer went to Dallas for the first vacation he had taken in his entire working life. He checked into a downtown hotel, but when he got to his room he immediately called the front desk. The farmer said, "This here bed kin sleep the whole Cornhuskers football team! I only wanted a regular-sized bed." The clerk responded, "That is a regular size bed, sir. You have to remember that everything's big in Texas!" The farmer went to the hotel's bar and ordered a draught beer. When he was served, he said to the bartender, "This is as big as a milkin' pitcher. I only asked for a glass of beer!" The bartender answered, "That is a glass of beer, sir. You have to remember that everything's big in Texas!" When the waiter in the hotel's dining room brought out the steak the farmer ordered for dinner, the farmer exclaimed, "That steak's as big as my thigh, the baked potato's bigger 'n a watermelon, and this corn-on-a-cob's as big as a baseball bat! Where'd this come from?" The waiter replied, "It's all local, sir. You have to remember that everything's big in Texas!" When the waiter asked the farmer if he wanted to see the dessert menu, the farmer said he might be able to squeeze something in, but after consuming all that food and drink he needed to use the restroom first. The waiter directed him to go down the hall to the first door on the right. By this time, the farmer was quite inebriated and mistakenly went through the first door on the left. He walked across the tiled floor and fell into the swimming pool. When the farmer came sputtering to the surface, he yelled out, "For gawd's sakes, please don't flush!” Nine Ways Not to Start Your Police Report. 1. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. 2. The names contained in this report have been changed to protect the innocent. 3. The mayor then made an illegal left hand turn onto Mulraney at which point I opened fire. 4. Before I get into the details, I've got a few "shout­outs" for my homeys in the command staff. 5. It was so dark and wet that night you could almost eat the mist. The radio call penetrated the eerie silence with such piercing intensity that for a moment, I was sure I'd lost my mind . 6. Got call. Responded. Arrested bad guy. The end. 7. Mye pertnar an eye wher on petrol wen we seen a man act suspishushly. 8. The suspect then tried to assault me by repeatedly slamming his face into my fist. 9. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Things your mother would NEVER say. •Yeah, I used to cut class a lot too. •Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I'll be glad to feed and walk him every day. •That outfit isn't sexy enough, here, unbutton your blouse. •Why don't you hitch-hike? It would totally be cheaper. •The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It's not like I'm running a prison around here. •Don't clean your room so often. It makes the rest of the house look bad. •Can I borrow your new speed metal CDs? •Naw, you don't have to call me, I'll eventually figure it out if you're in trouble. Strong Pills. Concerned about his failing manhood, a farmer went to the local doctor for help. The doctor gave him a small container of pills and told him to take no more than one a day. Back home, the farmer thought he'd try the medication on his stud horse first. The horse swallowed the pill, jumped out of his stall, kicked a side of the barn over, and ran off down the road. "Those pills are too strong for me," the farmer thought, and pour the rest into his well. Later, when the doctor came to check on him, the farmer told how he had disposed of the medication. "Heavens!” exclaimed the doctor. "You haven't drunk any of the well water, have you?" "No," said the farmer. "We can't get the pump handle down." Being practical. During a practical exercise at a military police base, the instructor was giving the class instruction in unarmed self- defense. After he presented a number of different situations in which they might find themselves, he asked a student, "What steps would you take if someone were coming at you with a large, sharp knife?" The student replied, "BIG ones."VILLAGE OF ARROWWOOD REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES Monday, June 22, 2015 The Regular Meeting of the Council of the Village of Arrowwood was held in the Village Office on Monday, June 22, 2015 commencing at 8:00pm.

A lone tourist passing through the suburbs on the way to town by car unfortunately experiences mechanical problems with the automobile. The car stalls and the tourist parks the car by the side of the road and waits for help. Not much later, a farmer happens to pass by with a truck full of farm animals. The farmer offers the tourist a lift to town and proceeds to explain that he is bringing his farm animals to the town market, where they will be auctioned off to the highest bidders. Well, it so happens that on the way to the town, the farmer being so engrossed in his story, unintentionally wanders into the other side of road where another vehicle is approaching in the other direction. The farmer realizes his absent mindedness and attempts to avoid the possible collision with the other vehicle. He just misses the other car, but unfortunately crashes the truck into the side of the road. The tourist winds up thrown into a ditch and suffers broken ribs and a broken arm and leg and is obviously in extreme pain. The farm animals are all messed up very badly and the farmer, although remaining inside the vehicle, still suffers cuts and scrapes. The farmer gets out of the truck and looks at his farm animals. The chickens all have broken limbs and can barely move. “These chickens are all useless! Nobody will want to buy these chickens anymore!” bellows the farmer. With that, he grabs and loads his shotgun and blows away the chickens. Next, he sees the pigs and they are all lame and bleeding profusely. “These pigs are all worthless now! I’ll get nothing for them!” yells the farmer. With great rage, the farmer reloads his shotgun and blows away the pigs. The farmer looks at the sheep and they all have broken limbs and their wool is all bloodied. “Worthless sheep!” screams the farmer and with that, he reloads his shotgun and blows away the sheep. Meanwhile, the injured tourist witnesses all of this carnage in great horror. The farmer then moves over to the side of the ditch and looks at the tourist. “Are you okay down there?” asked the farmer. “NEVER FELT BETTER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!” the tourist yelled back. oscsjcscsea Q: What is the definition of diplomacy?
