Wedding dress from 1965 - Medicine Hat NewsWednesday, March 27, 2019
Milk River in Masinasin and near Red Deer in Castor respectively, but they met as young school teachers in Carstairs in 1964. They got engaged and were married at Southminster United Church in Lethbridge on Aug. 21, 1965.
Barb and Dave didn’t consider it important to have an elaborate wedding, as they were busy. Dave was moving his parents’ house and Barb was going to summer school. But Barb was the youngest in her family and the only girl, and her parents were not to be denied, “No, we’re going to have a wedding.”
Barb told them, “I guess if you want a wedding, we’ll talk by phone, [and] you’ll have to make all of the arrangements.” And they did, for between 100-125 guests. Barb’s sister-in-law, Joan Hughson, was an extremely good seamstress and made Barb her “going away” outfit. The wedding ceremony was at Southminster United Church, the reception was at the El Rancho, and an open house and dance were held for the couple near Milk River at the Masinasin School.
Said Barb of her parents’ determination to plan the wedding: “I recognized some years later that weddings are happy occasions and that if extended families don’t get together for happy occasions, they get together fo...

Grave changes: More Albertans opt for green burials - CBC.caSaturday, March 02, 2019
Calgary are planning to offer green burial options at city cemeteries.Natural burial areas have already constructed in Fort McMurray and Cold Lake and are in the design phase for Cold Lake, Lethbridge and Slave Lake.In Edmonton, natural burial areas are planned for two existing cemeteries.At Northern Lights Cemetery, bodies would be laid to rest without the use of chemicals, cement liners or headstones, and only funeral shrouds or biodegradable caskets made of untreated wood or wicker will be allowed. In South Haven, cremated remains would be placed in eco-friendly satchels with plants as markers.Over time, those natural burial areas would resemble a woodland park or a natural public garden, said Teena Changarathil, Edmonton's cemetery supervisor. "As it evolves and the area grows, it will look like a walking path garden," she said.Concept planning for both projects has been completed. If the budget is approved during city council deliberations this year, construction could begin in 2020 or 2021. There is a huge demand from the public, Changarathil said."There is more awareness of it. We're getting a lot of questions. How can I get put on the wait list? How soon will it be rolled out?"People are loo...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
