    Green Hectares place to be for ag immersion

    EDMONTON - A Strathcona County group is working to create what's thought to be Canada's first major agricultural training, education and business development facility on two quarter-sections east of Edmonton.

    Green Hectares could attract tens of thousands of visitors a year with its combination of courses for young farmers, demonstration livestock and crop operations for city residents, an agricultural business incubator and an equine competition building, board chairwoman Laura Bodell said Friday.

    Old power plant's future uncertain

    EDMONTON - Epcor is preparing for the decommissioning of the Rossdale power plant in January, but still doesn't know what will become of the building.

    The project's high price tag is to blame, said Sol Rolingher, chairman of the River Valley Alliance, an organization aiming to transform the Alberta's river valley into an integrated, world-class park.

    1,500 trees targeted to attack pine beetle

    BANFF - Parks Canada plans to help the Alberta government's war against the mountain pine beetle by removing about 1,500 trees attacked by the destructive insect.

    Officials say they want to slow the buildup of the beetle population in Banff, thus reducing the number of beetles spreading eastward onto provincial lands.

    Oilsands stall seen as time to plan ahead

    EDMONTON - The recent flood of project slowdown notices from Petro-Canada, Shell and Suncor is not all bad news for the group representing Fort Saskatchewan-area municipal governments.

    "We can look at this as an opportunity to find out what we must do improve our ability to compete," Neil Shelly, executive director of Alberta's Industrial Heartland, said Friday.

    Living on the Hill

    I'm looking out of my window at an incredibly blue and sunny Alberta sky that does not appear to be falling. Despite rumours to the contrary, life in the big city goes on and we should all be thankful to be living here and enjoying tremendous blessings compared to so many people in other parts of this crazy world.

    We are constantly bombarded with negatives telling us that we should be tightening our belts and avoid spending. But fortunately our economy is fairly stable today, thanks to people who are still buying. I was with a car dealer last week whose sales chart showed that he'd sold four cars already that day. Even better, the Art Gallery of Calgary raised $90,000 at its recent auction to fund educational programs for school children, while an event for Opportunity

    Condo projects feeling pinch as economy slows

    Investors in the condominium real estate market are taking their lumps in the wake of a correction that is seeing projects delayed or even cancelled.

    In Calgary, resales are down from a year ago, average resale prices have dropped and new condo starts are expected to plunge next year.

    The situation is likely to worsen with a near-record number of new condos currently under construction and poised to hit the market.

    LRT won't affect emergency response

    The $700-million west leg of the LRT could cause a 96-second delay for fire trucks trying to leave a southwest station, but the city has come up with a plan it believes will nullify the delay.

    A report going to a city committee next week says the street-level LRT crossing at 17th Avenue and 45th Street S.W. could "negatively affect" emergency crew response times when trying to leave the hall via that intersection.

    Developers smooth Plan It wrinkles

    Calgary's property developers and home builders are hailing a revised city growth blueprint that's not "as scary" as it appeared months ago, when their associations demanded city hall delay its plan so they could lobby for changes.

    Two of Calgary's most influential lobbies -- the Urban Development Institute and Canadian Home Builders Association-Calgary Region -- had expressed fears that the new land-use and transportation plans under the Plan It Calgary project would choke off expansion of new suburbs and virtually spell the end of the single-family detached house.

    Sales and listings gap narrows in Calgary

    The gap between sales and listings of used homes is narrowing in Calgary, a sign that balance could be returning to a marketplace top-heavy with available inventory, says a national group.

    Across the country, the balance between sales and new listings has stabilized in many major resale housing markets in recent months, says the Canadian Real Estate Association.

    Builders get ready to heal cuts and bruises

    Far from waving the white flag of surrender, Calgary's housebuilding industry will start regrouping in preparation for the inevitable turnaround in industry fortunes.

    At least that's the way Cal Wenzel, president and founder of Shane Homes, envisions things shaking out for an industry he's been involved with for nearly 30 years.

    "In the short term, we'll take some time to sit back and accept what has happened this year," he was saying at the recent 30th anniversary celebrations for Canyon Plumbing and Heating Ltd. "Then we'll get on with making things better."

    Old Strathcona's ignored cousin may get a redesign


    EDMONTON - If Old Strathcona is the favoured child of Edmonton neighbourhoods -- popular, attractive and fashionable -- Strathcona Junction is its geeky sibling -- plain-looking, insecure and ignored.

    Located just south of Whyte Avenue between 99th and 105th streets, Strathcona Junction is a mish-mash of light industrial, small commercial and residential uses with a rail line running through it.

    Historic American decision capturing Alberta attention

    Despite most opinion polls and political pundits pointing to a Democratic win Tuesday, a couple of Barack Obama supporters in Calgary aren't ready to declare the American election race over.

    Mare Donly, who moved to Calgary five years ago from the United States, worries about possible voting irregularities, while expat Rita Sirignano wonders whether long lines at polling booths will deter voters who think Obama's victory over Republican John McCain is a lock.
