Microsoft Computer Scams Continue

posted Mar 27, 2017, 11:31 AM by Kathy Carr

RCMP Blue Hills Area report for the period of March 1 to 21, 2017.  During this time, police responded to approximately 113 calls for service, or incidents in the Town of Carberry, Municipality North Cypress-Langford and Municipality of Glen­boro-South Cypress;
March 5th; A Polaris XP1000 - green 2017 ATV was stolen from a property in the RM of North Cypress-Langford.  The vehicle was kept in an unlocked shed. The theft occurred during the previous day or night. To date the vehicle has not been recovered.
March 6th; A resident of Glenboro, advised that her vehicle was damaged on February 21st while parked at the Glenboro Pharmacy. The driver's side rear door was struck, causing damage to her black 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. To date the responsible party has not come forward. 
March 7th; Littering? Or mischief to property?  Police are asking assistance in determining the individual(s) responsible for discarding sunflower seeds in the lobby of the Carberry Post Office on a regular basis. Not only does this act of mischief cause a great deal of annoyance to those that enter the lobby and creates a mess for the janitorial staff, it can also result in a criminal charge of Mis­chief to Property. Anyone with information in this regard is asked to contact the police. 
March 8th; The "Mic­rosoft" computer scams continue to be received in the Carberry area. Pop up messages on personal computers direct the user to contact "Microsoft" immediately and to not shut down their computer.  Once the number displayed on the screen is called, the suspect requests the user to allow access to their computer.  Fortun­ately for this resident, she did not follow instructions and hung up. 
Street Clearing by Town of Carberry Public Works; RCMP would like to remind all driver's to adhere to street signage when in place so that snow removal can be done safely and efficiently. During the last clean up after the blizzard, several young adults were noted to be driving erratically and without due care and attention in the vicinity of the snow removal equipment and Town employees. Further incidents involving the same offenders will result in charges. Others are reminded to be observant and drive with caution when heavy equipment and Town employees are working on the streets.  Help prevent a collision and possible personal injury. 
March 19th; A resident in the Glenboro-South Cypress area reports the theft of grain from a silo on the farm property overnight. An estimated value of over $18,000. An auger had been left behind by the suspects and was subsequently seized by police. The matter re­mains under inves­tigation. 
The Better Business Bureau has listed the Top 10 Scams of 2016, here are a few: 
Employment scams: Advertisements for "work from home" deals with a promise to be paid a great sum of money is one example. Do your re­search before applying for any such jobs as this can result in a cheque cashing scheme.
Romance scams: A lot of money is given away to persons met through online dating sites. The suspects are rarely in the same country and can never meet in person. Do not wire any money in these circumstances. Pro­tect yourself and know who you are corresponding with.
Identity fraud: Gaining personal information in order to secure loans and credit cards. Change your online passwords frequently. Do not provide your personal information to anyone that you can't confirm is legitimate.
Canada Revenue Agency scam; The CRA does not make threatening phone calls or request your personal information over the phone or by email. 
For a complete list visit: BBB.org. and www.rcmp.ca for information on how to report your scams as well as prevention and tips in relation to cybercrime.
The RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding any unsolved crime to contact the Carberry RCMP at (204) 834-2905 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, submit a secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com or text “TIPMAN” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

Build Our Kids’ Success

posted Mar 27, 2017, 11:28 AM by Kathy Carr

BOKS, an acronym for ‘Build Our Kids’ Suc­cess,’ is a program that ran at R.J. Waugh Elementary for grades 1-4. The program ran twice a week in the gym starting at 8:00a.m. 
The students arrive, enjoy a bit of free play, and then participate in fun cardio and strength based activities to get their brains primed for learning. BOKS was founded on the belief that active bodies = active minds and uses fun games and challenges to encourage healthy habits that will hopefully last a lifetime. BOKS is an initiative of the Reebok Canada Fitness Foundation in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Canadian Football League and PROPEL (University of Waterloo) to expand and enhance physical activity in Canadian elementary schools. It is free of charge to attend.
The BOKS initiative, started by Regan Manns, teacher at R. J. Waugh, began in Carberry in the fall of 2016 with its first session hosting 25 grade three and four students, once a week. In the winter of 2017, the program expanded to include 60 students of a wider age group, over two days a week. Every week has a strength based theme such as lunges, crunches, or planks. The morning begins with a warm up game where the students practice the skill of the week. After, there is an endurance component where the students run, walk, and jog according to set interval criteria for the week. Once this is complete, it is time for some relay activities and then onto a wind up game before breaking for breakfast around 8:30. The BOKS breakfast program has been sponsored by the I.O.D.E for the last two sessions and has found many teachers helping with baking muffins as a breakfast option. 
Recently, the Westoba Credit Union performed a Westoba Wonder on Tuesday, March 21 and Thursday, March 23 and provided a bagged breakfast for the BOKS kids. The second round of BOKS will be complete before Spring Break. BOKS Rocks!

Staying Strong for JD

posted Mar 20, 2017, 1:03 PM by Kathy Carr

“Staying Strong for JD Epilepsy Awareness and Benefit Social,” you have probably seen these pos­ters in the local businesses around town, advertising this fundraising event  for JD Van Den Bosch and his family as they continue this journey that they are on.
JD Van Den Bosch is an energetic little boy who had his first seizure just before his third birthday on June 2, 2016. After the first seizure he had another one a week later and then he just kept having them one after another, week after week. On July 7, JD was diagnosed with Generalized Primary Epilepsy and on July 19  he was admitted to the Children Hospital in Winnipeg and was diagnosed with Doose syndrome. After the diagnosis last July, JD and his family have begun their journey of living with his Doose syndrome.
Now you’re probably wondering what Doose syndrome is and here is the answer. Doose Syn­drome (MAE Myoclonic Astatic Epilepsy) is a childhood epilepsy syndrome that is often resistant to medication and can be typically difficult to treat. It is usually characterized by generalized seizures and can vary in the types and frequency of them. Many children tend to experience a large number of seizures daily which makes the condition extremely difficult to manage.
Doose syndrome generally appears in  children between the ages of one and five who usually have an uneventful history. It is worth mentioning though that in some cases, there is a positive family history of seizures and family studies over the years have supported a genetic basis for it. Another interesting fact about Doose is that it is more common in boys than girls. 
When it comes to Doose syndrome, the severity of it ranges from mild to those who are more severely affected by it. For the children that are only mildly affected by Doose, generally the first line medications can quickly and easily control their seizures. For the kids that are at the severe end of the spectrum of the Doose syndrome, finding an effective medication or treatment can be extremely difficult. JD falls into that area of the spectrum. His mom, Chantell said that they have tried many different types of medication and combinations to help control JD’s seizures, but they don’t help, in fact, they do the exact opposite and end up making him very hyperactive on top of already having been diagnosed with ADHD. 
When it comes to bedtime for JD, Chantell says that because of the frequency of JD’s seizures she actually sleeps with him to keep an eye on him “It’s common, but uncommon for people with epilepsy to die in their sleep from having a seizure and I have a fear of that happening to JD.” She says that he also has sleeping issues and will wake up in the middle of the night and she doesn’t know if its a seizure that is causing him to wake up or what it could be. Chantell has spent pretty much every night with JD since he’s been diagnosed.
When it comes to the different types of seizures that are out there “i.e.” Absence seizures (also known as petit mal), Tonic-Clonic or Con­vulsive seizures (also known as Grand Mal), Atonic seizures (also known as drop attacks), Clonic seizures, Tonic seizures and Myoclonic seizures, JD has them all. Chantell said that when it comes to the Grand Mal seizures, they somewhat have those controlled with JD only having one to two of those a month. A good day for JD is only having five to 10 seizures a day and these seizures are usually a mixture. The most amount of seizures on record that JD has had in one day was 479, said his mom.  JD also has a special helmet to wear to protect his head and face from when he has a seizure and might fall.
Funds raised at the social will be going towards purchasing a special bed for JD as well as medical expenses. The special seizure bed is like a gigantic playpen, it will keep him safe and will stop him from getting up and wandering around at night. It also has a seizure alert that monitors him and lets his parents know when he’s having a seizure. They’re also hoping to create more awareness about Epilepsy and Doose syndrome in the Westman Area as well. According to JD’s neurology nurse, he is the first or the second known case of Doose syndrome in Manitoba she has come across in her 30 years as working as a nurse.
If you are interested in attending the Social or would like to donate or help spread the awareness about Epilepsy please contact the following people Chantell Van Den Bosch - 204-596-8736, Mitch Van Den Bosch - 204-901-2883, Will Van Den Bosch - 204-922-0808, Arlene McDonald - 294-841-0487 or Chris Van Den Bosch - 204-232-4291.

Town Council - Initial steps taken for the Lagoon Expansion

posted Mar 20, 2017, 12:58 PM by Kathy Carr

Carberry Town Coun­cil has realized for some time that an expansion of the Carberry lagoon will be needed as our community continues to grow. At the March 14 meeting of coun­cil, the first initial steps were taken to start this process. Mayor Stuart Olm­stead chaired the meeting, which immediately followed a budget meeting.
Council authorized Tetra-Tech to prepare an En­vironmental Act Pro­posal for a lagoon ex­pan­sion, at a cost of $32,332.75 to be taken from reserves. They also passed a resolution aut­horizing the cleanout of the lagoon and removal of sludge, in compliance with the Environmental Act, for a fee of $7500. This resolution is re­quired for their license to operate the lagoon, even though no cleanout or removal of sludge may take place. Council thought this may be an issue for the Red Tape Reduction panel that was seeking redundancy in Provincial acts to streamline.
In a separate, but related discussion, Planning Officer, John McEntee brought forward what the planning district meeting had pointed out, that along 351, just west of Carberry, there are lots on the north side in the “Country Residential Four” area, and lots on the south side, which exist in the “agricultural limited” area. 
McEntee pointed out that the lots on the south side would make much more sense to be in the CR4 zone. However, he noted that when any of these lots are sold, their existing sewage system will not be compliant, and they may be required to either change to holding tanks or tie into a nearby sewer system (Carberry). There are already homes and lots in North Cypress-Lang­ford tied into this system.  One of the solutions proposed would be rezoning both areas to a RR2 (Rural Residential 2) to more accurately reflect what is happening at present in the area with smaller lots (2 acres and above) and to allow for future intensification of the area in years to come, depending upon how the RM council wishes to proceed in the future. Council will calculate the additional demand that could be placed on the Carberry system.
Subdivision Approval
Mr. Simon Ryan wished to subdivide the westerly lot into three equal sized properties, two of which would be suited for condominium style residential units and the third to be used as a “park” area. The plan will also require a variation order for the minimum size to establish a ‘park, playground & tot lot’ from 21,780’ sq. to 19,320’sq. and the front yard setback from 75’ to 32’, to take into account the green space between the condominiums and the present eightplexes. One of the conditions of approval of the subdivision is the rezoning of the land from ARR (Agricultural Residential Reserve) to RHD (Residential High Density), which Mr. Ryan appeared before Council in February to discuss and answer questions. The subdivision was approved with the Rezoning hearing scheduled for the April Council meeting.
Once the condominium plans have been submitted, there may be other variation orders required. The developer must also enter into an agreement with the Town of Carberry regar­ding the development of infrastructure.
Joint meeting 
resolutions
(As these are also in the NCL news, they will be brief) Alex Broad was hired for Parks and Recreation, and his wage set; Keith Loney was appointed Fire Chief and Don Menzies as Deputy Fire Chief for 2017-2019; wages for hourly paid joint employees increased by 1.5%; Kim Reynolds, caretaker, resigned. 
Councils agreed to be silver sponsors of the McCain Clear Lake Golf Classic, for a total of $2000 ($1000 from the Town of Carberry). Councillor Barry Ander­son will attend.
General Business
There was some discussion regarding the old town shop. Since it is housing several pieces of shared equipment (handivan, fire, etc.), should it be considered a joint building now? Council discussed their options and will talk to their Municipal partners at the joint meeting.
There is also consideration to look at the building next door to the municipal office, as extra storage. CAO Jones noted that there is a need to have extra space, for both the municipal office and the Cypress Plan­ning District and also with the addition of the old Langford files. Council members will look at this building prior to the next joint meeting.
Council accepted a quote from TIC Parts and Service for the purchase of a 2017 240 mower for the sum of $15,537.50 (taxes included.)
The sidewalk by Meyers Meats is still on the “to do” list, and should be redone (taking out the old coal chutes) as a joint project between the owner and the town, this spring.
Membership was paid to have public works become members of the Manitoba Waste Water Association. The membership allows them to attend workshops at a considerable discount.
Council reviewed the EMO update from Co-ordinator Brad Wells. In consideration of the last blizzard, there is thought being given to having a plan for an emergency that would address a long term loss of hydro. 
A letter of apology was received from a young offender in regards to an incident involving Town property last year.
The fire report for 2017 so far notes one call to Carberry (false alarm), with 17 calls taking place in the Municipality.
Council approved a $300 grant to Kidsport.
Council approved a grant of $3000 to Communities in Bloom for 2017. Despite their request for an increase in grant, Council are holding tight to their budget.
Unpaid accounts totalling $210.00 were added to taxes, by resolution.
The garbage levy was set at $170 per dwelling unit. This is an increase of $10 per year, the first in more than five years.
Other business
A letter from AMM noted that the province is putting in a standardized fee structure for ambulances.
Councillor J. Ander­son noted that the council does not have a mission nor a vision statement. The logo from the 125 celebrations (Your Road to Family. Friends. Home.) is most commonly used, but it may be time to upgrade for Carberry. 
A cell phone policy was also discussed – for work or for meetings. Mayor Olmstead felt that as a council tool, a smartphone should be required by all Coun­cillor's in the future.
CAO Jones noted that resolutions for the June District Meetings should be in by June 1.
J. Anderson
Anderson also brought forward the URL for a Manitoba survey on carbon tax. He urged council, and everyone to take the survey at www.manitoba.ca/climateandgreenplan
Accounts totalling $315,081.49 were approved for payment. Next meeting will be a joint one on March 27 and the April meeting will be April 10 (both municipal meetings will be on this day, NCL in the morning, Carberry in the afternoon).

Municipal Council - Council discusses lot designations

posted Mar 20, 2017, 12:45 PM by Kathy Carr

The Langford area of the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford is a par­tner in the Beautiful Plains Community Foun­dation, centered in Neepawa. A delegation from that organization attended the NCL council meeting on March 13, with Reeve Adriaansen in the chair.
John Lavich, vice-chair and Brenda Kryschuk, Executive Director, visited the council meeting to share information about the BPCF, and to educate them, in the hopes of educating others.
Kryschuk noted that it is not the giving out of grant monies that is the focus of the foundation, but the impact it has in the community. It has a similar history to the Carberry and Area Community Foundation, both having been encouraged by the Thomas Sill Foundation in Winnipeg in 1990’s, and both now investing through that Winnipeg Foundation, which gave them a much greater rate of return than can be achieved individually. In 2016, the interest was 11.25% - which resulted in a much larger amount to be disbursed.
In all foundations, money is taken in through donations, wills and bequests, life insurance policies, and fund­raising. That money is invested with the existing funds (more than $3 million) and the interest is what is paid out in grants. Brook­dale Com­munity Club has been the recipient of many grants. Over the years, $1.7 million ($42,000 in 2016) has been disbur­sed through the Hospital En­dow­ment Fund, which has helped with new equipment and doctor recruiting in Neep­awa.
As in Carberry, there is a Youth Advisory Com­mittee that determines projects and funds them (with the Board’s app­roval). The shutting down of the United Way has made a huge impact on both communities.
Kryschuk’s appeal before they left the meeting was to “attend fund­raisers,” and she hoped that coun­cil members would help in the education of the public.
Planning
Planning Officer, John McEntee attended the first part of the meeting. First order of business was to hold a variation hearing in regards to a subdivision application by N. Winkler. He proposes to subdivide a nine-acre parcel into a five-acre (with the existing residence on it) and a four-acre parcel on which a new residence would be built.
A variation is required because it is in an RR10 zone on NE 5-11-15W. After no objections being expressed at the hearing, council passed the resolution varying both parcels.
An irrigation water line (Fiskel Farms) originating in the NE 26-12-15 (F, J, D Kennedy) to SE 35-12-15 (B&N Kommer Ltd) at a 90º angle from the middle of the quarter was also given approval. Con­ditions are: that an easement agreement be signed by all three parties in­volved, that the water line be sleeved, that the GPS location of the crossing be entered into the agreement, the water line be a minimum of 36” below the lowest point, and that a development permit be obtained.
Council has seen much fewer of these applications, now that the authority to approve them has been given to the Cypress Planning District (under NCL policy).
McEntee invited council to discuss eleven lots adjacent to the western boundary of the Town of Carberry. They are located on the south side of Hwy 351 in the “Rural Agricul­tural Limited” area. On the north side of Hwy 351 are additional lots that are classed as “Country Residential Four.” Mc­Entee stated that it makes no sense to have the southern lots classed as agricultural, and that it would make more sense to have them as country residential. As the development plan is being rewritten, this would be the time to do it.
If council elects to change the designation of those lots, Adriaansen noted that the first question council will have to answer, is, “How will this affect my taxes?”  McEn­tee noted that any of those lots, prior to sale, would have to be assessed for their sewer system, as they are less than two acres and would not comply with new regulations for a field (but Conser­vation is more likely to ask them to connect to the Carberry sewer system). 
Council also took another look at the labyrinth of municipal roads and highway, some open and some no longer in use, which exist adjacent to 351 Hwy east of town (just west of the new subdivisions). The “old highway” used to have a lot more turns, and as it has been straightened, the old road portions were never closed. Council discussed closing these unused roads (except the northern extension of Road 74W) and amalgamating them with adjacent lands.
McEntee suggested closing another unused part along NW 1-11-13, on the north side of 351. Council would be willing to do this if the landowners that would be benefitting from the acquired property would foot the bill for the legal and survey costs.
Another request for road closure is Road 60N, between Road 77W and 76W. As people use this undeveloped road, they are getting stuck and the property owners to the south are being asked to pull them out. Council will only close roads, according to their policy. However, they will stick up signs indicating that there is ‘no through road.’
Councillor G. David­son questioned whether a development permit would be needed for the installation of drainage tile on a road crossing. McEntee indicated that a road crossing agreement would be needed. Location of wires, pipes, etc., are up to the installer. The NCL by-law should be revised to reflect the rules for drainage.
Other business
By resolution, Council accepted the quote from Bluestar Construction Ltd for the crushing of 20,000 yards ¾” gravel for $69,000, and stripping topsoil (excavator and dozer) for $9,000 at the R. Parrott pit.
Later in the meeting they accepted the gravel tender of Bluestar, at a cost of $109,500 plus GST.
There were a few resolutions which arose from the February joint meeting (funded jointly): the hiring of Alex Broad for Parks and Recreation, and his wage set; Keith Loney was appointed as Fire Chief; Don Menzies was appointed as Deputy Fire Chief; all hourly-paid joint employees received an increase of 1.5% unless otherwise stated in their contracts. Kim Reynolds, caretaker, resigned and her resignation was accepted.
Both councils agreed to be silver sponsors of the McCain Clear Lake Golf Classic for the amount of $2,000 (total). Keith Loney, Weed Supervisor, was authorized to attend the Manitoba Weed Super­visors’ Association Spring Seminar, April 4-7 (total cost $540.08).
By resolution, North Cypress-Langford agreed to accept the expansion proposal to allow the Town of Carberry to become a member of the Whitemud Watershed Conservation District (each member of the WWCD must pass a similar motion).
A tender for grader(s) was deferred to the end of the week.
At last meeting, council looked at subsequent sewer hook-ups to the original at Brookdale and questioned whether any had been billed.
An email from the Brookdale subdivision developer, A. Dennis answered these questions. At the time his phase one lots were developed, he negotiated with the past CAO. Having supplied all his equipment to be able to tie into the service, he then paid an initial fee. Council felt they had to honour the past ‘deal’ that was made and will rescind the billing that was done.
Old Town Shop
The old town shop (which was previously the old fire hall) is housing the handivan and surplus fire equipment. It also serves as rental space for a neighbouring business. Harold Tolton of the building committee asked council to consider the idea that as it is housing joint equipment, NCL would take half ownership of the building with the town.
Reeve Adriaansen was adamant that the municipality does not want to take on any more buildings. He also felt that some of the items that are being stored, could be disposed of.
A bigger question is the condition of the old building, and whether it should be torn down. Council members were cautious about taking ownership of a building that may have major structural issues. 
Complicating the issue, is the fire reservoir under the building, which cannot freeze. As well, it was felt that eventually a new firehall would be built that would house all necessary equipment, and not sit right next to the railroad tracks.
Adriaansen also pointed out that the northern end of the municipality may not want to assist in paying for a building from which they gain no benefit. CAO Jones pointed out that 85% of the fire calls go out to the rural. 
The initial step is to have the building, which is over 100 years old, structurally assessed. 
Correspondence
A report on the latest EMO workshop was received from co-ordinator, Brad Wells. They are to have at least one tabletop exercise every year, so one will be slated shortly. Risks to be prepared for are: snow or ice storm that shuts off power for more than three days; tornado; hazmat incidents on the highways and rail lines.
From the AMM report: 2017 spring road restrictions will not start before Friday March 17.
The fire report from Carberry/North Cyp­ress-Langford Fire Dept since Jan 1, 2017 noted 17 calls, two false alarms and 13 accidents.
Carberry and NCL are hosting the June District meeting of the AMM, June 15. Resolutions are to be in by June 1.
Transport Canada is requiring municipalities to fill out Contract Railway Information. This is in the wake of the Lac Mégantic railway disaster. However, current staff does not have time to fill out and compile this material, so CAO Jones is suggesting that there are two companies that are taking on the job. She will get a quote from both companies to get the job done. One council complained that it “should be the railways doing it.”
The request for 2017 levy from the Wellwood Community Club was deferred to the budget meeting.
A CPR/First Aid course is slated for March 27. 
The City of Langford, BC made a request to purchase the langford.ca domain and issued a cheque for it.
Council authorized a grant of $300 to Kidsport. This organization assists youth in participating in sports, and has been well used in this area.
Councillor Norm Campbell and guest are authorized to attend the Manitoba Good Roads Association Banquet and Awards Presentation on April 11, in Winnipeg ($50).
Council approved their first installment of a grant to Neepawa Veterinary Services - $1635. Reeve Adriaansen questioned whether, with other vets in competition, they should be supporting a particular one. Councillor Davidson pointed out that it is a large animal clinic that is a support to the livestock industry in the area.
Certain unpaid accounts can be added to taxes. A $40 account for lane plowing in April 2016 was added to the property owner’s taxes.
Council also added three utility bills (for water) to taxes, totalling 1283.50. In cases where it was renters that incurred the bill, the bill will go to the property owner.
Council has also had to contact companies that are behind in their fees for dumping shingles. 
Around the table
Councillor Tolton questioned council about possibly of taking on the building next door (east) of the municipal office. The Reeve answer was the same – “No more buildings.”
Councillor Norm Campbell noted that this year is the 50th Anniver­sary of the Carberry Library. They may need additional funding for a celebration.
Councillor Gerond Davidson reported having attended the Neepawa Recreation Meeting. They are forming a committee to draw up a feasibility study and make a master plan for new facilities in Neepawa. He noted that any funding requirements must go through the Langford Recreation District.
Accounts totalling $380,729.21 were app­roved for payment. Next meeting will be on April 10 at 9 a.m.
