Reader Claims Tax Slavery In St. Albert

taxslavery
Don:

"Tax slavery" may come to our minds from time to time.

Since "misery loves company", I think it's comforting to know that millions, if not billions, are in the same situation. And they are struggling to do something about it.

My old Oxford defines "white slave" as: a helpless victim to or of some dominating influence. I think that's the definition that fits best here.

One large community, U.S. centered, is yelling: "Give us flat tax!" They argue that if you're making $20,000 yearly, or $1/2-billion: it makes no difference, everyone ought to be taxed at the same rate. And they're making excellent progress with that argument.

The other community, not the community of wealth/power/influence, but the community of common folks, is struggling, but valiantly.

Don, I'd like to bring your readers' attention
to this organization.

And to Björn Tarras-Wahlberg (aged 69), who appears to have devoted his adult life to building World Taxpayers, where he is secretary-general. He's the author of "Taxpayer Revolution", and here's a quotation: "Taxation is in reality a legalized slavery that has to be controlled -- not just taxation levels, but also the use of taxpayers' money."

So you see, dear neighbours: while you may be disconnected ... you're far from alone.

Deane Doucette,
Grandin

SINC SAYS:

Deane, that term 'tax slavery' has an ominous ring to it, but it pretty much defines our current situation in St. Albert. The slave masters must be proud.


LB's Pub Celebrating 25 Years Tonight
linda,randy,pat
LB's Pub owners met with Randy Travis last Tuesday evening in Westlock. That's pub namesake Linda Beier (LB) left to right, with Randy and hubby Pat.

It's not often that a family operated business in St. Albert hits the quarter century mark. It's even less often that a pub can make that claim. LB's Pub is the longest operated outlet by a single owner in the city since the fabled Bruin Inn.

Owners Linda and Pat Beier can be proud of the business they have built and even more proud of their contributions to live music in the city.

The couple each come from musical backgrounds that began in their childhood with family. Linda had two bands in B.C. and went on to do work with Dick Dameron and Tommy Scott in the Red Deer area before moving to Edmonton where she met and married Pat.

The Beiers are a musical family as well, with son Jade playing drums and both he and his younger brother Dion have great voices. You may even catch Linda, Pat or one of the boys on stage in the pub from time to time.

randy
LB's Pub has a long tradition of bringing an eclectic mix of music to their stage. In short, something for everyone over the years from Country to Jazz and from Blues to Bluegrass.

Many famous performers have graced their stage including such notables as Buddy Knoxx, The Good Brothers, Laura Vinson and even Adam Gregory have dropped by to entertain or just jam. The Australian band Mason Rock packs 'em in every time they are in town.

Many local entertainers are a common occurrence at the pub and regulars know the sounds of people like Gord Matthews (Ian Tyson's former lead guitar player), Bobby Cameron, Darrell Barr, Samantha King, Lisa Hewitt, Joanne Myrol and daughter Haley, Hank Lionhart and Fist full of Blues, Paula Perro, Aaron Goodwin and cousin Tyler, Allison Granger, Colleen Rae, Emily Seal and Leah Durell to name but a few.

Live music fans are treated every Tuesday by Mark Ammar, Jim Dyck and Randy Forsburg with musical guests each week during their Moosehead/Barsnbamds Open Stage.

Then on Thursdays Kenny Skoreyko, Fred Larose, Rock Vaugeois and Charley Deshane feature a singer/songwriter guest of the week for their regular jam.

June 16 is the day LB's Pub are officially celebrating and the staff, Donna, Bonnie, Sue, Nicole and Natasha are ready and waiting to show you a good time. They'll be serving up Ken's great cooking along with your favourite beverages.

Drop by Saturday night, or anytime for that matter. You will usually find Linda and Pat there every night to welcome you to the fun where you will enjoy St. Albert's live music home.

LB's Pub may very well be St. Albert's best kept secret. Come see what the buzz is all about.

Fake Chicken That Could Fool A Hen

hen-beak
In San Francisco, where so many food trends start, fake chicken is flying out the door. At Whole Foods in the Haight-Ashbury, a week's supply of the new meat-substitute, called Beyond Meat, sold out in two days. Nor was that an isolated case. Other Whole Foods in the city are reporting the same phenomenon.

"We're a little taken aback," says the chain's Northern California coordinator for prepared foods, Mathew Mestemacher. "The response is overwhelming."

Good Grief! Crouse Says He Likes Raising Taxes

New City Manager Wants To Plunge Us Into Debt

patrick-draper-200
Well folks if you aren't convinced by now that new city manager Patrick Draper is a chip off the mayor's block, he provided proof with his latest suggestion.

Draper says the answer to our problems is to borrow $40 million to plunge us deeper into debt and further raise taxes.

Read the details for yourself
here in the St. Albert Gazette.

Have we got the wrong man in this position if we want reduced stress on our wallets? Thank goodness he has tipped his hand early in the game. (There is a probationary period, isn't there?) Is this what we need, a new city manager with a yen to pick our pockets?

nolansmall
Add to that this spine-chilling quote from the mayor in the article:

"Mayor Nolan Crouse said he needs to see a little more detail before he makes a final decision. “It’s going to take me a while to get my head around how this doesn’t cost money. It does cost money – we’re saving a bit on interest costs by borrowing internally and raising taxes a little bit and that I like,” Crouse said."

So there you have it gentle readers. The mayor smells a new way to increase your taxes with the co-operation of his brand new hand-picked man and he likes it.

Note: In a related matter, we sent an email to all members of council asking how much the city spent on headhunters in the past year and specifically how much for the city manager and the new economic director positions. So far, all council members have ignored the request completely.

$450 Pizza: Pricey Pie With Lobster, Caviar

$450 Pizza-
There seems to be a never-ending amount of crazy expensive restaurant dishes. Just weeks ago, we were introduced to a $295 burger, claimed to be the most expensive by the Guinness Book of World Records (actually, it's not).

It's not just burgers that are getting adorned with expensive ingredients, though. steveston Pizza Co., a small chain of pizzerias in British Columbia, Canada offers a $450 pizza with a thermidor of lobster, black Alaskan cod and a side of Russian Osetra caviar. If customers are interested in the pricey pie, they need to order it one day ahead of time. Not surprisingly, only one customer has ordered it.

How's That $ervu$ Place $tarbucks Doing?

Are Taxpayers Making Or Losing Money?

nostarbucks
It's now been over six months since the city began its experiment of jumping into the retail business themselves by opening a $tarbucks outlet in $ervu$ Place.

So naturally many folks are curious as to how their money is being invested, or wasted depending on the financial status of the outlet.

One would think that after six months of operation, the city would be shouting success from the rafters of that hockey arena left vacant by the departure of the city's second AJHL hockey team in eight years.

That does not appear to be the case however as not a peep has come from city hall on the state of the business or how well it is performing.

That we suggest is an ominous sign of yet another failure for $ervu$ Place. Surely if with a half year's successful operation under its belt, the city would be rubbing our noses in how smart they were by spending all that money on the outlet.

old reporter small
So how's it going mayor and council? Have the first six months of operation delivered half that $90,000 profit council promised? Or is that something else you intend to hide from the public? We recall how you hid the costs from us, before you got caught with the real facts, that the initial $280,000 you announced to open the outlet was a great big fib. Turns out it was really over a million bucks.

Zero Benefit Spending Strikes Again

street sign
The cutesy little logos shown above are currently being installed on city street signs.

Is The City Wasting Your Tax Dollars
With 'Botanical' Street Signs?


Here we go again folks. More of your hard earned tax dollars being peed right down the drain without any possible benefit to local, or for that matter, out-of-town residents.

Some deep thinker at city hall has decided we now cannot live without that little 'botanical' cutesy logo they've adopted on nearly every darn thing out there. This time it's on street signs. Why do we need this waste of money?

Will it help anyone find a street they are looking for while in the city? No.

Will it make the street signs easier to read? No.

Will it enhance a visitor's impression of the city? No.

So then, just what does this money-waster do for us?

The answer is nothing, like too many other knothead ideas that come out of city hall.

Sure it's nice to have little details like that IF we can afford it. The trouble is we can't. When oh when, will council rein in this runaway spending that has zero benefit to we taxpayers? And just think of the labour costs to install these gems. Add that to whatever the signs cost and it is pure waste.

Surely to goodness they are not that stupid. Or are they?

Down At The Retirement Home

oldcouple
Two elderly people living in Retirement Village, he was a widower and she a widow, had known each other for a number of years.

One evening there was a community supper in the Clubhouse. The two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he took a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered the courage to ask her, 'Will you marry me?'

After about six seconds of 'careful consideration,' she answered 'Yes. Yes, I will!' The meal ended and, with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places.

Next morning, he was troubled. 'Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?' He couldn't remember. Try as he might, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her.

First, he explained that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he inquired, 'When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?'

He was delighted to hear her say, 'Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart.'

Then she continued, 'And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me.'

Put Your Car Keys Beside Your Bed At Night

Put Your Car Keys
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone is trying to break into your house, press the alarm button on your car fob. The alarm will go off and the horn will blare until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

This tip came from a neighbourhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think about this: it's a security alarm system that you already have and requires no installation! Test it. It should go off from most anywhere inside your house and work in your driveway or garage.

If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are that person won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbours will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough he'll disappear.

Another tip: remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The sound of the alarm will scare the perpetrator away. Please share with everyone you know - it could save a life or prevent a crime.

P.S. This suggestion could also be useful for an emergency such as a heart attack, especially if you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.

Same Old Poop, Different Pile

City of St. Albert hires internally to replace Larry Horncastle

meaning-self-2-past-present1
The city of St. Albert's new city manager Patrick Draper has demonstrated his intention to reject the 'new broom sweeps clean opportunity'. Instead he will stay with the same tired old traditions set by his predecessor, as well as this mayor and council.

The hiring of the current general manager of planning and engineering to somehow be transformed into a new guru of economic development has left many citizens shaking their heads over the decision.

How a current member of administration can bring a fresh new approach to a key position is beyond the comprehension of many residents. Where is the logic in such a flawed decision?

Short answer, there is none.

In a story back in April in the St. Albert Gazette, city manager Patrick Draper was quoted as saying, “I'm a builder, not a turn-around artist.” Sadly for the citizens of this community, he has started by building with used materials.

At the time of former city manager Bill Holtby's firing, mayor 'Git Outta Town' (And You Too Seniors) Crouse
stated in a St. Albert Gazette article, "We’ve decided to have a new, refreshed [chief administrative officer] help lead us for the next several years.”

This is 'new and refreshed'?

When Horncastle was fired, Jennifer Jennax, the city’s general manager of business and strategic services and Horncastle’s direct supervisor
said in the St. Albert Gazette, “Larry’s done great work for the city and he’s made significant contributions. We need to take the city’s business development in a new direction that we believe requires a different set of skills and strengths.”

This is a 'new direction'?

old reporter small
If the city didn't get enough heat when they fired Larry Horncastle 10 months ago, they should expect to once again have their feet held to the flames for this stupid move. Apparently they did not learn from that experience.

Simply put, it's the same old poop in a different pile.

Complete details in the St. Albert Gazette. And the comments to date on the Gazette's website bear out that heated rejection by the public of Boston as being any improvement is well underway.

Septimus (Saxophone) and

Jim Donnett (Guitar) 

Septimus
- As a lover of all types of music, (specializing in Jazz and blues, but not restricted to it) Septimus has played with several bands in and around Edmonton for several years adding more versatility with an eclectic flair. For the last 15 years he has been dedicated to playing Calypso/Reggae and pop music with the band “Catalyst”.  I first met Septimus at the Saturday afternoon Blues on Whyte Jam. I was very impressed with his stage presence and his respect of time in regards to coming in and out of solos with the great dynamics and mic distancing. A very jazzy upbeat style. He states "I will continue to play all types of music until my love of music is only a distant memory". Our pleasure to present Septimus for the first time at the Moosehead/barsnbands open stage.

Jim - has been visiting our open stage since 2005. His style, tone and dynamics are truly some of the best in the music business. His plethora of guitar experience dates back to the 60's. Coming to Alberta from the west coast at a time when the open jam and live music scene was starting to buzz, gave Jim a chance to show his skills in numerous rooms to the delight of jammers and jam hosts and patrons. He can sit in with any style on stage with a comfort zone that always amazes me. His respect timing and control brought him so many invites to sit in when he entered any music room or gig. He currently sits in at the renowned Newcastle Soul Service Sunday Jam with Willie James Engel and Crawdad and also is the main stay guitarist for Alberta's band The Fabulous Canola Tones. Jim is moving back to the west coast and we wanted to have a one last Tuesday Moosehead spot with him before he moves.

No, They’re Not Photographs: Astonishing Acrylic Paintings

With their spectacular use of focus and reflected light, these incredible artworks look like carefully composed still-life photographs.

But in fact they are all painstakingly rendered on canvas with acrylic paints by Canadian artist Jason de Graaf.

The hyperrealistic paintings, which almost appear as if they are computer generated, are like freeze frames of a world more magical than our own - inspiring the term Magic Realism as a description.

The Natives Are Growing Restless

A Council Out-Of-Step With The Community?

wastedloons
There are growing signs of unrest in this community and its faith in its governing council. You can hear it on any street corner and in coffee shops and bars across the city.

The only people who apparently don't hear it are mayor 'Git Outta Town' (And You Too Seniors) Crouse and five members of the current council.

Even the normally supportive St. Albert Gazette joined the voices of the disgruntled when they took council to task for missing a golden opportunity to limit tax increases to 1.5 percent in 2013, when they turned down councillor Cam MacKay's motion to rein in spending.

With the notable exception of MacKay, the balance of this council are now being called enemies of the city in many circles.

Why? They just don't get it, that's why. People have finally had enough and can't wait to rid themselves of this crew of misfit spenders.

A perfect example of their flawed vision for this city is evident right now on the St. Albert Trail where they have seen fit to institute a beautification program. While it is fine to have a city that looks good, one should draw the line at taxpayer waste and that is exactly what the over $1 million they spent is, waste.

First let's get one thing straight. Adding beauty to what is essentially an out-of-town commuter corridor to and from Edmonton has zero benefit to any St. Albert taxpayer. As a matter of fact, it has zero benefit to any of those commuters either.

A concrete divider there instead would have provided a functional roadway that would be maintenance free for a quarter of a century. Instead we now have trees and shrubs that will have to be maintained year after year, trimmed out of traffic's way in the future. Add to that the expense of the added manpower to keep that beauty looking beautiful.

It's a simple no-brainer that most of council failed to grasp that it serves no purpose other than to inflate the already bloated egos of too many on this council.

The meat of the matter is that residents want spending reined in and they want it done now, not after they toss most of this council's sorry butts out on the street.

Enemy number one may in fact be councillor Wes Brodhead who continues to bring out the boogeyman of service cuts. That is pure fear-mongering and nothing more.

The fat in the city's budget is legend and could easily be cut without dropping a single service. Any competent CEO could cut 10 percent out of any of the last couple of city budgets without raising a sweat or reducing a single service. All that needs to be cut is the bloat, fluff and infrastructure built around those services by this and former councils, and especially by this administration.

If our new city manager doesn't come to the table on behalf of taxpayers, his tenure will be short-lived, along with that of this mayor and most of council.

old reporter small
They had better belly up to the bar, listen to the natives, rein in that team of spending horses or face the consequences.

Right now the public has lost all faith that this gang of free spenders can think clearly, or represent them properly by understanding the need to stop the spending spree.

READER RESPONSE:

Hi Don,

Just for  you! I can’t give away my contact at the city, but this is an email exchange last week. Is the cost of maintenance included in budget for the plantings?

Subject: RE: Planting Along St. Albert Trail

Me: How are the smaller shrubs and bushes going to survive winter/snow/road salt? Will they have to be replanted each year? Just pondering. Even the rather large lilac etc in our neighbourhood gets killed/damaged  by the snow dumped on them.

The City's Reply: It won't be the healthiest site. But they use these all over most Northern cities and they manage to survive with maintenance.

Just Wondering
St. Albert

SINC SAYS:

This is but one more example of the extremely poor thought process that dogs this beautification project. Note that dreaded word 'maintenance' in that reply. It is a senseless waste of tax dollars. Once those trees grow, they will have to be trimmed annually to avoid contact with semi trucks or be ripped to shreds by them. Brilliant indeed. It's a make work project that has ongoing costs to taxpayers every year it is allowed to remain there. Concrete, like that of 99 percent of other communities dividers used, would have been the smart choice. As is, it will continue to pick the pockets of taxpayers until a wiser future council concretes it over to save money when the city is bankrupt.

The Older Crowd

The Older Crowd
Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart when they collide.

The old guy says to the young guy, "Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was going."

The young guy says, "That's OK, it's a coincidence. I'm looking for my wife, too, I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate."

The old guy says, "Well, maybe I can help you find her. What does she look like?"

The young guy says, "Well, she is 27 years old, tall, with red hair, blue eyes, is buxom and not wearing a bra, long legs, and is wearing short shorts." What does your wife look like?

To which the old guy says, "Doesn't matter. Let's look for yours!

Solar-Powered Supertrees Breathe Life Into Singapore

sing234
(CNN) -- Singapore's latest development will finally blossom later this month, with an imposing canopy of artificial trees up to 50 meters high towering over a vast urban oasis.

The colossal solar-powered supertrees are found in the Bay South garden, which opens to the public on June 29. It is part of a 250-acre landscaping project -- Gardens by the Bay -- that is an initiative from Singapore's National Parks Board that will see the cultivation of flora and fauna from foreign lands.

Details on CNN.

New Edmonton Eskimo Fan Board

edmonton_eskimos_mini_helmet
Good Morning, Don.

Is there a chance that you could post this on St. Albert’s Place? If so, it would be much appreciated.

I just wanted to let all Edmonton Eskimos and CFL fans know that me and a few other long-time Edmonton Eskimos season ticket holders and die-hard fans have become founding members of a new Edmonton Eskimos “fan board.”

The goal of this fan board is to share ideas and promote CONSTRUCTIVE, intelligent, meaningful discussion and debate (similar to what occurs on the mybirdie.ca “Live Chat” site) about issues surrounding our football team (the Edmonton Eskimos) and the CFL. All issues are open for discussion and debate. We sincerely hope to avoid the kind of “toxic,” counterproductive environment that has existed on other Edmonton Eskimos fan boards for quite some time now.

All new members are welcome and I really encourage all CFL fans to join. Would you also pass this message on to any other Edmonton Eskimos, or CFL fans, that you know? If you would, it would really be appreciated.

Here’s the link to the new Edmonton Eskimos fan board appropriately titled, “Eskimo Empire.”

Please spread the word to other Eskimos (or CFL) fans that you know, or any of your other many contacts for that matter, who may be interested in joining and sharing ideas and/or discussing and debating issues about our football team. The more, the merrier.

I have already joined and posted on the new site frequently and intend to continue posting there.

The ultimate goal is to supplant other Edmonton Eskimos fan boards as the “place to go” for reasonable, intelligent, meaningful chat, discussion and debate about issues that affect our football team and the CFL in general.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Jim Starko
St. Albert

Don,

Thanks for the BBC, love it!
 
I keep suggesting to Global News that since they have a local news and a national news they should have an international news (and weather) segment, especially that they now have extended their hours and given that more and more people travel outside North America.

I'm not going to hold my breath while I wait for a reply!

Perhaps I should suggest they linkup with BBC?

God's Wish Granted

God's Wish Granted
A man on his Harley was riding along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, God said, 'because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.'

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.'

God replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.'

The biker thought about it for a long time.

Finally, he said, 'God, I wish that I, and all men, could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.

God replied:

"You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?"

What’s Really In Your Steak?

steak23
Forget organic, locavore, omega3, umami, artisanal and all the other signposts of the healthy, ethical and refined “good food” movement, there are important advances in CuisineWorld that are going 180 degrees in the opposite direction — advances that literally are reshaping what we eat (while also reshaping us).

Let’s start with red meat. Perhaps you’re one who enjoys a steak dinner now and again. If so, let me ask this question: Do you prefer it with a nice Bernaise sauce, a side of garlicky spinach — or maybe some transglutaminase?
