    A fi re on Remembrance Day completely destroyed a home near Bluffton. Donations for the family living in the rented home are being taken at Bluffton General Store. Morriah Rudnik Photo

    Blaze at house fi re near Bluffton destroys homeNov. 11, 2015 will be a Remembrance Day not to be

    forgotten for a single mom living in a rented home near Bluffton.

    Mary Hummel and three of her fi ve children still living at home are now homeless after a relentless blaze swept through the house located west on Iola Road.

    Rimbey Volunteer Fire chief John Weisgerber said the call came in early Wednesday evening.

    It was called in by someone doing work with a grater on the road, he said.

    Weisgerber said the fi remen battled the blaze until around 11 p.m., but the fi re was too advanced to save the building.

    The fi re was fully engaged by the time we got there, he said. There was no hope to save it.

    He said there was no one home when the fi re occurred. Julie Graham, who owns Bluffton City General Store

    along with her husband Chris, is accepting donations for Hummel and her family.

    They lost everything and really only have the clothes on their back, she said.

    Cash donations, household items and blankets will be gratefully accepted, said Graham.

    No donation is too small, she added.Weisgerber said the cause of the fi re has not been de-

    termined and it is still under investigation.

    Ponoka CAO pleased with deal struck with developer, Rimoka and the town

    The CAO for Ponoka County commends a local developer for his help and co-operation regarding the land parcel earmarked for a new seniors housing complex in Rimbey.

    Stan Cummings, princi-ple for SJC Developments, at all times acted in a very co-operative and pro-fessional manner and his agreement to accept 100 per cent of the cost to develop 45 Ave. is a huge fi nancial benefi t to Rimoka, said Charlie Cutforth.

    The CAO said typically Rimoka and its member municipalities would be required to cost share the project as it is an adjacent landowner.

    It is my opinion that any further requirement for mu-

    nicipal reserve dedication from SJC Developments be waived in consideration of his generous commitment for 45th Ave., he added.

    Cutforth said the MR requirement from SJC Developments was to be approximately three acres before the land now known as the Rimoka lands pur-chased by Rimoka was re-zoned from urban residen-tial to industrial public use.

    However, once the land was rezoned that MR re-quirement was no longer valid.

    All parties agreed and Ponoka County proceed-ed with the purchase of the property with only a deferred reserve caveat at-tached to the title.

    Cutforth noted his ca-veat would only apply if the land was to be further

    subdivided.Obviously, this i
