JUST A TAP ON THE SHOULDER A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window. For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said, 'I'm sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me.’ The frightened passenger apologized to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much. The driver replied, TMo, no, I'm sorry, it's entirely my fault. Today is my first day driving a cab. 25 years.

Magazine. jen Kuhlwein is the granddaughter of Kay Zaytsoff. j 4 Work-ft? April, 2008 i Making (radio) waves in the Pass xuc y ccti uiu v^ctigaiy native has been the afternoon voice of Mountain Radio since the summer of 2007, and has been making fans, and breaking barriers, ever since. "I have a big passion for radio," Jen says. "Radio really does give you a chance to get out into your community." Jen's interest in radio started in high school, when she decided to enroll in the radio broadcasting program at SAIT in Calgary Jen, like many of her classmates, got a first-hand introduction into the realities of the radio industry ' "I really knew nothing about radio," Jen laughs, speak­ing from behind her console in CJPR's air studio. "I wanted to play music all day! I wanted to get a job where I could press a couple of buttons and have the chance to play all of the music that I wanted. Then I went to school, and they told me that whatever I thought I knew about radio to forget it, because it isn't true!" Jen's initial aspirations during school weren't on-air, they were in writing. 3y Bryan Passifiume The previous block of songs winds down on the automation sys­tem's computer screen, she whisks the microphone fader up on her console, clears her throat and punches the big red button. "94.9 Mountain Radio, I'm Jen Kuhlwein." Anyone who lis­tens to Mountain Radio in the after­noon knows Jen Kuhlwein. Spinning tunes from 12 until 6 on the Blairmore- based station, her perky, entertaining and informative radio show helps bring listeners home from work with her lively ban­ter and today's best country music. The dynamics of what makes a good radio DJ have been the subject of many dissertations on the psychology of radio listenership. Countless listen­er surveys, studies and endless attempts to hire the voice at radio stations across North America have tried to pre­dict what will keep listeners, and what turns them away. Geddy Lee from Rush, in their soliloquy (and some say epitaph) of modem broadcasting The Spirit of Radio, said: "Begin the day with a friendly voice, a companion unobtrusive." The fruits of these studies, as well as industry tradi­tion, dictates that women traditionally don't have a place behind the microphone. Studies show that a feminine voice doesn't carry credibility with listeners on the air, which over the years has prevented many women from getting their shot on air. This trend, however, has been changing. More and more women are popping up on the airwaves, and get­ting their shot alongside the Rick Dees, Steve Dahls, Howard Stems and Don Imuses of the radio world. Jen Kuhlwein counts herself among those new voices.April, 2008 wtf® rfi-rsi Announcer finds her voice She didn't think that she had a good enough voice for on-air work, until an instructor at SAIT heard her airchecks and told her that she was a natural, "I was never going to do on-air," she recalls. "If you put a microphone in front of my face, my mind would go blank! I hate talking in front of people, so sometimes, when I think that people are listening to me, it is a little scar}';" The hardest part for any new radio announcer is find­ing their voice. Jen was one of the fortunate ones, as she found her voice relatively early. "One thing I was told was that it's very hard to find your voice, but for some reason, [my instructor] said that I had found it during my third semester of school. He told me that if I concentrated on doing on-air work, I could be great." "My instructor said that he really like listening to my voice, he said 'it's like listening to a friend'." Voice is everything in radio, especially when the per­son behind the microphone is a female. Traditionally, the women that get jobs in radio have low, raspy and some­times butch-sounding voices. There is a definite bias towards announcers with high-pitched voices. Jen is con­scious of that, so her on-air voice tends to be lower than her normal speaking voice. "I do have a different voice that most other women on the radio," Jen says. "It's not a typically-low female radio voice." Despite this, Jen presents a very pleasant presence when broadcasting. It's decidedly feminine, and carries an almost subliminal sense of credibility - a fine balance to Daryl Ferguson, Mountain Radio's honey-throated morning man, who presents a pleasant and warming bari­tone. Her advice for other women who may be considering a career in radio is dedication, along with an understand­ing of an unusually and sometime patently unfair indus­try- "I wouldn't say that it's impossible for women to get jobs in radio," she says. "I mean, look at me. I'm here and I'm certainly nothing special. You have to work hard - the women that have been in radio for the past io years have been very, very strong women. They worked their butts off." While Jen is humble and certainly not egotistic, she does realize that her work at Mountain Radio may serve as an inspiration for other women to get into the indus- try. "Most women are hearing other women on the air," she says. "Maybe a young girl will hear me on the air this afternoon and say, 'hey, maybe that's something I'd like to do,'. That's what I did!" The future for Jen is spending more time at Mountain Radio. She counts herself lucky that, fresh out of school, she has found a workplace that she wants to spend a considerable amount of time in. "My future is to work on my skills here," she says. "I don't want to be anywhere else. I don't see myself leaving any time soon." Afternoon radio is a tricky part of the day for any announcer, doublv so for Ten since her air shift is six ' J 'S hours, almost double what a shift at a iarger-market sta­tion would be. "This isn’t a nine-to-five job, it's a lifestyle," Jen says. "There's a really high turnover rate in radio. You have to work for a really long time before you start marking decent money. You really have to have a passion for it." It's this passion, as well as her growing number of fans in Blairmore, Elkford and soon Pincher Creek, that drives Jen along her chosen career path. Jen can be heard on Mountain Radio CJPR from noon until 6 p.m. every weekday on 94.9 FM in Blairmore, or 1340 AM in Elkford.

Up 1-75 to 1-70 to 1-90, through the head of America and ever north. More than 100 mites from the nearest major highway, off Provincial Secondary Route 842, is the village of Milo. Population 100. A year later, his parents sold the farm and moved to Strathmore, Alberta, with a population of 10,000 and location just 25 miles from Calgary. St seemed like a metropolis to Henry, whose dad was now driving a gravel truck instead of working the fields. The family didn't have to drive so far for Damian, who was now' in the top level of PeeWfee hockey. Meanwhile, Jordan Henry finished up his final year of juniors with the Red Deer Rebels of the i his is where Henry, now a defenseman and a Panthers prospect currently with the ECHL’s Florida Everbiades, learned to skate - In between working ihe fields, fixing the machines and helping with calving. Calving? “lbs when the cows give birth," Henry says. Doesn’t everyone know that? Everyone in Milo does, where an agrarian lifestyle still dominates and hockey is the only diversion from work and school. Milo has a grocery, pub, cafe, Lutheran Chun* and a Lion's Club. There is a community hail, walking paths, a hotel, a library, one school, a curling rink . and an arena. Western Hockey League. He and his agent talked with a few NHL teams, but the Panthers were the most interested. So Henry, with no contract, took a chance on summer camp, rookie camp and the main training camp with the Panthers, during which he played in a couple exhibition games. Finally, at the beginning of October, She six-foot-two, 198-pound defen­seman was offered an NHL con­tract with Sie Panthers. He was sent down to the AHL’s Rochester Americans and then to the Everbiades. There's obviously a learning curve,” Blades coach : Gerry Fleming says. ,. “But I'm happy with (Henry’s) progress. He's a big No mention of a movie theater. And forget going to = body. he skates well for a big guy ■ the mall. Henry spent his first 19 years in Milo, on his parents - and grandparent's farm. They butchered and ate their own cattie, worked the fields of wheat and - canola and played hockey on the pond behind the j house every Christmas: Jordan and his mom, : Mariys, vs. his dad, Sandy, and his younger brother, : Darian. Jordan showed potential in hockey from an early ' age, and his parents decided to make the dedication : to drive almost two hours for his games and practices. I That big body, so prized by hockey scouts, didn't come easy, it came through years and years of harvest of calving, of planting, of skatingat the local arena anytime he wanted. Henry might not be a farmer anymore, but the years he spent in Miio are as much an influence on his hockey career as any coach, clinic or training he's ever had. As for Milo, don't be surprised if the arena there gets a new name as Henry's career continues. "Jordan Henry Arena: Home of the Farmers." It tested my commitment level at a young age," he said. At age 18, Henry started playing major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League, living away from his family with a host family in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan for almost half the year.PEROXIDE This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a physician's wife), and I want to share it with you. It was sent to us by a Dental School classmate. She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and countertops. This is what she told me. I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleach cost? My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and most doctors don't tell you about peroxide. Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office? NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know better! Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It’s chlorine. Folks! And it was used to kill our troops. Peroxide was invented during WWI in the 20's. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about this. 1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash. 2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs. 3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters. 4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria. 5.1 had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry. 6.Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide. 7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will. 8-Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue. 9.If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly. 10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through You will not have the peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the hairdye packages but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, faddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually, so it's not a drastic change. 11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections. 12.You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary. 13.1 use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this. I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner! This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, too.Do you need a permit? | Yes. You must obtain a building permit for I any basement development as determined by | your local authority.

December 2007 ISBN: 978-0-7785-6002-9j lmba&air^rsi MW Required plans information Bedroom windows Window egress into window-well You must submit plans with your building permit application to your local authority be­fore starting any construction. The plans should contain the following floor plan and cross-section information: Floor plan requirements • Show proposed and existing rooms. • Indicate the use and dimensions of the proposed rooms under development. • Indicate details of any structural changes. • Show locations of smoke alarms. Unless a bedroom has a door that leads directly to the building exterior, or the basement is sprin- klered, each bedroom must have at least one window that can be opened from the inside without the use of tools or technical knowledge. This window must provide an unobstructed opening with a minimum area of 0.35 nr (3.77 ft2 or 543 square inches), and no dimen­sion less than 380 mm (15 inches). See the drawings below for further clarification. Examples of conforming and non-conforming bedroom windows If a window opens into a window-well, a clear­ance of at least 550 mm (about 22 inches) be­tween the window and the wall of the window- well is required. An awning-style window opening into a win­dow-well may pose a challenge in maintaining this clearance, and it could interfere with the occupant’s ability to exit through the window- well. The required clearances must be main­tained when the window is in the open posi­tion. Gas-fired furnaces • Indicate locations, sizes and swing direction of all doors. • Indicate window sizes and locations. Cross-section requirements Cross-section details shall be provided where required by the safety codes officer and should incorporate the following: Insulation: The perimeter of the foundation wall is to be insulated from the top of the wall to a minimum of 600 mm (24 inches) below the exterior finished ground level. This insulation is to have a minimum thermal re­sistance value of RSI 1.4 (R8). Foamed plastic insulation materials: These can be dangerous when exposed to fire and must be protected by a thermal barrier (i.e. dry wall). Vapour Barrier installed on the heated side of the insulation. A. Does not conform to area requirements The opening in example A is only 0.144 m2, and it will not allow the av­erage occupant to pass through the window as an alternate means of escape during a fire emergency. B. 380 mm opening area 0.35 m2 Examples B and C conform to height, width and area requirements In developed basements, gas-fired furnaces and water heaters must be enclosed in a separate room from the living space, as required in the current edition of the Alberta Building Code. Smoke alarms Smoke alarms located in both the main dwell­ing and the basement must be installed as per the current edition of the Alberta Building Code. They must be hard-wired into an electrical cir­cuit and interconnected so they will all operate in unison. Carbon monoxide alarms Carbon monoxide alarms shall be installed in every home containing a solid-fuel-burning appliance, as required in the current edition of the Alberta Building Code. The alarms are also recommended for existing homes.Do you still have questions on whether you need a permit? Contact your municipality if it is not clear whether a permit is required or whether a permit is already in place for a specific project. If your municipality does not issue permits, you can call the Municipal Affairs and Housing Communications Inquiry Centre (CIC)at 1-866-421-6929. Provide your municipality or the CIC with as much information as possible regarding the location, address, and specific details about the project. This will help them determine the types of permits that may be required.

December 2007 ISBN: 978-0-7785-6004-3 -O I need 3 building permit?Questions to ask before you start your project: • Do you need a building permit? • Do you need any other permits? • Where do you get a permit? • What else do you need to know? When do you need a building permit? Building permits are required for most major construction projects. These projects include new buildings, additions, renovations, altera­tions, repairs, relocations, demolitions, or the change of use in an existing building. NOTE: The Safety Codes Act requires that all contractors and homeowners in Alberta obtain permits prior to starting any work on buildings covered by the current edition of the Alberta Building Code. Responsibility for compliance The owner of the building has full responsi­bility for carrying out construction, or having construction carried out, in accordance with the requirements of: • the Safety Codes Act', • regulations related to the Safety Codes Act; • the Alberta Building Code; and • the permit, including compliance with any special conditions required by the authority having jurisdiction. NOTE: Neither the issuance of a permit, nor inspections made by the local authority, shall in any way relieve the owner from full re­sponsibility. Other kinds of permits: Depending on the nature and scope of your project, you may also require one or more of the following permits: • Electrical permit • Plumbing permit • Gas permit • Private sewage systems permit • Heating and ventilation permit Where do you get a permit? Permits are available through municipalities that administer the Safety Codes Act, and through agen­cies who provide inspection services on behalf of municipalities or the province. If you don’t know whether your municipality issues permits, contact Alberta Municipal Affairs and Housing through the information on the back of this brochure. Development permits allow a specific type of de­velopment to proceed and assure conformance with local zoning and development bylaws. Check with your municipality to see if a development permit is required for your proposed project. If it’s required, you should provide a copy of the development per­mit with your building permit application. Are plans required? • You must submit plans with your building permit application to your local authority before starting any construction. • All construction plans will be reviewed by a cer­tified safety codes officer. • Check with your local authority to determine what plans information is required before you apply for a building permit. Applying for a building permit: When applying for a building permit, you must submit the following information to your local authority: • Describe in detail the project or occupancy to be covered by the permit; • Describe the land on which the project will be located, with a description that will eas­ily identify and locate the building lot; • Submit plans, specifications or other docu­ments showing, in detail, the proposed oc­cupancy of all parts of the building; • State the value of the proposed project; and • State the names, addresses and phone num­bers of the project owner, designer and contractor. When do you need a professional? Structural details not covered by the Alberta Building Code may require the seal and sig­nature of a professional engineer licensed to practice in Alberta. NOTE: Professional involvement is deter­mined based on the building size and com­plexity, as set out in the Alberta Building Code. The owner is responsible to ensure professionals are used where they are required by the code or the local authority. If the requirement for a professional is not clear, you must contact your local authority to clarify. The professional is responsible for making sure his or her work meets the requirements of the Safety Codes Act.Slick-Up Sal 00X1 S Teiitk Annual Velleyhcri!

FATHER S DAY HUMOUR My Dad thinks he wears the trousers in our house, but it's always Mom who tells him which pair to put on! I started early teaching my kids the value of a dollar. From then on, they demanded their allowances in gold. One time my kids wanted to surprise me with a good breakfast in bed on Father's Day. They put a cot in the kitchen. If you think about it, Adam had more trouble than any of the rest of us buying his Father a gift for Father's Day. I mean, what do you get somebody who's Everything? A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Dad". With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands: Dear Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice even with all her piercing, tattoos and her tight motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion dad, she's pregnant and Joan said that we will be ivery happy. Even though you don't care for her as she is so much older than I, she already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. She wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too. Joan taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and trading it with her friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want! In the meantime, well pray that science will End a cure for AIDS so Joan can get better; she sure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad. Someday I'm sure well be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren. Your son, Benjamin P. S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. I love you!

At that time Barb was the librarian in the village of Milo and was also appointed as the Milo representative to the Chinook Arch Board. For ten years Barb’s connection to Chinook Arch was twofold - as a member librarian and as a Board member. Barb was elected to the first Executive Committee of the System Board and made major contributions to the Chinook Arch Board as the Chair of the Planning Committee for the first ten years from 1992 to 2001. Not long after Barb decided to retire from the System Board, I started to try to convince her to bring her rural library experience and expertise to work as the System’s library consultant. After some initial reluctance Barb finally agreed to join the System on a part time basis as Library Consultant in March 2002. Barb has made an incalculable contribution to the development of our services. I will miss Barb enormously as will all our libraries and our headquarters staff. As a Library Board member in Milo and a community volunteer at the Milo Library, Barb will continue to have some connection to Chinook Arch."At the April 16, 2008 General Meeting of the Milo Junior Ball Club a decision was made to fold the club and disperse of the assets, This is due to no volunteers to organized the last several years due to declining numbers and interest. The funds in the Milo Junior Ball Club account at Scotiabank Milo have been donated to the Milo Recreation Board and the equipment (which was being stored at the School) has been donated to the Milo Community School.

For more information, contact Katie Walker 599-3763The Old Phone A Must Read. When I was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighbourhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the telephone but used to listen with fascination when my mother talked to it. Then I discovered that somewhere inside that wonderful device lived an amazing person. Her name was 'Information Please' and there was nothing she didn't know. 'Information Please' could supply anyone's number and the correct time. My personal experience with the genie-in-a-bottle came one day while my mother was visiting a neighbour. Amusing myself at the tool bench in the basement, I whacked my finger with a hammer. The pain was terrible but there seemed no point in crying because there was no one home to give sympathy. I walked around the house sucking my throbbing finger, finally arriving at the stairway. The telephone! Quickly, I ran for the footstool in the parlour and dragged it to the landing. Climbing up, I unhooked the receiver in the parlour and held it to my ear. 'Information Please' I said into the mouthpiece just above my head. A click or two and a small clear voice spoke into my ear. ’Information.' 'I hurt my finger.' I wailed into the phone. The tears came readily enough now that I had an audience. 'Isn't your mother home?' came the question. TMobody's home but me,' I blubbered. 'Are you bleeding?’ the voice asked. 'No,' I replied. 'I hit my finger with the hammer and it hurts.' 'Can you open the icebox?' she asked. I said I could. 'Then chip off a little bit of ice and hold it to your finger,' said the voice. After that, I called 'Information Please' for everything. I asked her for help with my geography, and she told me where Philadelphia was. She helped me with my math. She told me my pet chipmunk that 1 caught in the park just the day before, would eat fruit and nuts. Then, there was the time Petey, our pet canary died. I called 'Information Please,' and told her the sad story. She listened and then said things grown-ups say to soothe a child. But I was not consoled. I asked her, 'Why is it that birds should sing so beautifully and bring joy to all families, only to end up as a heap of feathers on the bottom of a cage?' She must have sensed my deep concern, for she said quietly, 'Wayne - always remember that there are other worlds to sing in.' Somehow I felt better. Another day I was on the telephone and asked for 'Information Please.' 'Information,' said the now familiar voice. 'How do I spell fix?' I asked. All this took place in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. When I was nine years old, we moved across the country to Boston. I missed my friend very much. 'Information Please' belonged in that old wooden box back home and I somehow never thought of trying the shinny new phone that sat on the table in the hall. As I grew into my teens, the memories of those childhood conversations never really left me. Often, in moments of doubt and perplexity, I would recall the serene sense of security I had then. I appreciated now how patient, understanding, and kind she was to have spent her time on a little boy. A few years later, on my way west to college, my plane put down in Seattle. I had about a half-hour or so between planes. I spent 15 minutes or so on the phone with my sister who lived there now. Then, without thinking what I was doing, I dialed my hometown Operator and said, 'Information Please.' Miraculously, I hear the small, clear voice I knew so well.'Information.' I hadn't planned this, but I heard myself saying, 'Could you please tell me how to spell fix?' ^ There was a long pause. Then came the soft spoken answer, 'I guess your finger must have healed by now? I laughed, 'So it’s really you,’ I said. 'I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during that ---o» LilllC . . J , 'I wonder,' she said, 'if you know how much your calls meant to me. I never had any children and I used to look forward to your calls.' I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and I asked if I could call her again when I came back to visit my sister. 'Please do,' she said. 'Just ask for Sally.' Three months later, I was back in Seattle. A different voice answered 'Information.' I asked for Sally. 'Are you a friend?' she said. 'Yes, a very old friend,' I answered. 'I'm sorry to have to tell you this,' she said.'Sally had been working part-time the last few years because she was sick. She died five weeks ago.'
