Students at Sacred Heart Academy and Holy Cross Collegiate were in for atreat on Jan. 23 when MLA Arno Doerk-son, Dave Rodney, Parliamentary Assis-tant for Health and Wellness, and Ag-riculture Minister Evan Berger touredtheir schools.“This is a wonderful opportunity for  both people in government and peoplein the public to come together. We cannd out what the needs of differentcommunities are across the provinceand that’s really what it’s all about,”said Rodney.“The last thing that my colleagues andI ever want to be guilty of is spendingtoo much time under the dome of theivory tower. The more people come toknow our MLAs, the more they come toknow they are ordinary Albertans justlike the other folks in their community.“We denitely have a focus, a pas-sion, expertise and experience in mak-ing life better for Albertans but in order to do that completely, effectively, weneed to have one-on-one time with in-dividuals.”Spending time at the schools and see-ing rst hand some of the issues beingfaced, such as space challenges, helps bring a new perspective to caucus ac-cording to Berger.“It’s one thing for somebody to ex-press what they see in the overcrowd-ing, or the difference in their schoolsor any of these on the ground issues. When you talk about it, as opposed tocoming out and actually visualizing itand seeing it, it’s a big difference. Youget a good understanding, you get agood understanding from people thatare advocating on behalf of the studentshere…and it just lls in whatever ques-tions you may have had,” said Berger.“Education is an extremely importantpriority for the province, it is for all of our communities, we’re all Albertansand we know that Strathmore, this areais growing rapidly. There’s pressuresfor space, for capacity so this particu-lar stop was based around that,” saidDoerkson.

“I think there is great opportunity inthe province. We know that it’s an ex-citing year, there’s going to be an elec-tion this year, so we know that’s com-ing within the next few months.“I just see a lot of opportunity for our province and also for this area asit grows and as we continue to worktogether communities to address thechallenges that we face and turn thoseinto opportunities. It continues to bea privilege to work together with our communities, to see things happen.” After touring the schools the menthen headed off to the WheatlandCounty ofces to meet with the con-stituents and hear their concerns.Communities throughout the provincehad a chance to speak to governmentofcials during the province-wide cab-inet tour Jan. 23 to 26. The focus of thetour was to listen to members of thecommunity about local issues, to hear their plans and hope for the future, both provincially and locally.

Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish and considered the national dish of Scotland. Haggis is a kind of savory pudding containing sheep’s heart,liver and lungs, then minced with onion, oatmeal, suet and spices. Traditionally it is encased in the animal’s stomach and simmered for hours,however most modern commercial haggis is prepared in a casing rather than the stomach.

Bruce Bishop, a Strathmore Lion, can look forward to be-ing busy after being elected to the position of District Gov-ernor at the Lions Convention held in Strathmore on January 13 and 14. There were just over 200 Lions and Leos Present.“In our Multiple District 37, the Strathmore Lions is in theDistrict called 37-O. We have 51 clubs in our district, andI’ll be the District Governor of those 51 clubs,” said Bishop.He said the Strathmore Lions Club is a part of a greater multiple district which includes all of Alberta, part of BritishColumbia, all of Montana. There are approximately 1515members in the Strathmore District. The District Governor has to visit every club during the year, which runs from July 1 to June 30. They must also attend four Council and Cabinetmeetings as well as many Charter Nights, Conventions andLeadership Rally’s.Bishop has been a Lion for 37 years, coming to Strathmorein 1984. He had been a member of the RCMP and when he was transferred from Brooks to Elk Point, east of Edmonton,there wasn’t a Kinsmen Club there, which he had been amember of for ve years in Brooks, so he joined the Lionsand has been a member ever since.Service and helping the community are two of the thingshe likes most about being a Lion. The Strathmore Lions hostthe senior’s breakfast during Heritage Days at the hospital,and have two food booths at the rodeo grounds. They alsohost the town Christmas party, and the seniors Christmasparty at the Civic Centre. The Lions are good supportersof the Children’s Wish functions. They also take part in theRelay for Life by being a sponsor and cooking the pancake breakfast.In April there is the Ladies and Gentlemen’s Auction toraise money as one our projects.“The Lions is the largest single service organization in the world. We are co-ed, multicultural. We have over 40,000 clubsin 206 countries and 1.35 million members give or take afew, and we are the only service club in China,” said Bishop. When a natural disaster strikes, such as a tsunami or earth-quake, there is the Lions International Fund. The DistrictGovernor of the affected area can request assistance fromthe fund, and the Lions are rst on the ground providing as-sistance where needed, as there is usually a club in the area.“One hundred per cent of any funds donated to Lions that

How do we pull that magical number out of our …. Computer? 
Well, the series is almost over and I think we have gone over most of the basics here,now time to touch on “THE GRID” 
This is one of the tools weuse to quote you. Basicallywhen you have no driver orinsurance history, you startat a ‘0’ on the grid. For everyyear you have a license, anddrive claim free, you go downone level on the grid. For everylevel you go down, you save 5%on your liability to a maximumdiscount of 50% or -10 on thegrid. You may wonder if themaximum savings are 50% ,how can you have a grid levelof -15?The best level you can be on the grid is -15. You still have a50% discount, but the benet is

if you have a claim. If you are at fault for a claim,you go up 5 levels on the grid. So if you were -3and had a claim, you would be a +2 on the grid. Ifyou were -10 you would go to -5 (this is a savingsof 25%), and if you were -15 you go to -10 (and stillhave your 50% discount!!)What happens if you are in the + on the grid?You get surcharged 10% on your liability for eachlevel you go up. Yikes!! ‘nuff said!

 we make from our projects must be spent on the public, noton the members. There is absolutely no administration fee,100 per cent is given to the public,” said Bishop. The Strathmore Lions put in the Splash Park at KinsmenPark, have always been a big supporter of the swimmingpools, helped with the skateboard park, and also donate toa number of different groups around town.Becoming a member is by invitation only, and people inter-ested must be of good moral character and 18 years of age,or older. The Strathmore Lions has sponsored a Leo’s Club, which is based out of Strathmore High School. The Strathmore Lions currently have 54 members, andBishop believes there are soon to be four or more new mem- bers, making it the fourth largest club in its district. They have had four previous District Governors since be-coming chartered in 1939, and there is only one club in Cal-gary who has had more. In 2017 Lions International will becelebrating 100 years of service.

 The Chinook Entrepreneur challenge is back for its eighthconsecutive year. Community Futures and ATB Financial arepartnering to support the business planning challenge. Outof the six or seven Community Future partners, with Wil-drose included, there have been approximately 500 people who have participated in the training sessions.“It’s an excellent business training program and it really gives people a good opportunity to not only get some highquality training, but also to communicate with other likeminded people during the training sessions and ask ques-tions,” said Ron Cox, General Manager for Community Fu-tures Wildrose Region.“Anyone can take the training even if their sales are $10million, but they can’t compete in the business plan competi-tion if their sales are over $2 million.”Cox said there is usually 70 to 90 participants in the train-ing, and of that, only 25 to 30 per cent actually submit busi-ness plans for the competition.“The most important element of this is the training that you receive for your business. That’s where the real benetcomes from,” said Cox.“Most people when they’re starting out don’t know whereto start, and you really have to start with planning. Planningsaves you just so much effort and misdirected effort. It justreally helps to stop and think, and there are a lot of peopleout there that would like and want to start their own busi-ness.”Participants will learn the business basics, such as market-ing, creating a business plan, accounting, nancial, adver-tising, and cash ow. Cox said it is pretty much the wholegamut of what is needed to execute an expansion, retention,a re-organization or putting a new business into place. Anyone who participates in the challenge will have achance to compete for the grand prize of $10,000. There arealso numerous in-kind prizes. Training sessions will be heldat the Community Futures Wildrose ofce, and will go fromFeb. 1 to March 28. Registration is free, and the eight ses-sions will be held every Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.Business plans are due April 30, 2012 and the nal awardspresentations will take place on June 14, 2012.

Promoting healthy living now that will follow our childreninto the future is just one reason why Strathmore residentKelly MacDonald offers children’s yoga classes.“I teach adult yoga classes and it was just something thatintrigued me. I just know how busy kids are right now, withall of their sports and everything,” said MacDonald.“I thought this would be, as much as it is somewhat t-ness related, it’s more about exibility and slowing down,and just taking time for themselves, they don’t get that timeanymore and it was more about that.”It all began about two years ago when MacDonald tookher certication through an international company called‘Rainbow Kids Yoga.’“I went to Seattle and took the training, the gentleman’sname is Gopala and he travels worldwide to teach, to in-struct instructors. The closest place at that time for me wasSeattle,” said MacDonald.Some of the children who participate in her classes may come with friends, and some may not know anyone. Shesaid it is also like having a peer support group. Since she began offering the program, MacDonald says she has hada good turnout. Some of the kids return for new classes,and there are a few kids who started in the three to ve agegroup who have moved up into the next age group.MacDonald runs the program out of her home, and teach-es children ages three to 14. The younger kids have a 30minute class, while the older groups take part in a one hour class.“We get a little more advanced, but we also do lots of stuff through games. I’ll teach a little bit of a class and then theones who have been coming for awhile I’ll say, ‘alright, your turn you guys. Get together as a group and this is what I want you to do’,” said MacDonald. What she calls a pose for an adult class is not necessarily  what she would call it in a kids class, and MacDonald said
Promoting healthy lifestyles
everything is the same but different.MacDonald said there are lots of boys taking her classes, which she nds interesting, some of which are hockey play-ers. Yoga provides the kids with knowledge about how their  body works, and how they can x it if they have any dis-comfort.Classes have already begun, but anyone looking for infor-mation can contact Kelly MacDonald at 403-629-7465 or viaemail at f3tness08@gmail.com.
