Committee reports, lively membership discussions
and the election of offcers set some directional com-
pass points for the Strathmore and District Agricul-
tural Society in the New Year.
“It has been an interesting year with the resigna-
tion of the previous General Manager,” said President
Casey Silbernagel.
Many of the issues were discussed at the Annual
General Meeting earlier this month.
Farrah Williams, C.A. and John Gauvin, C.G.A., from
Gregory, Harriman and Associates, presented the f-
nancial report and indicated a $100,000 proft was
made from Heritage Days. A donation from the Strath-
more & District Christmas Hamper of $50,000 helped
renovate the Livestock Pavilion for use as a commu-
nity hall and the society agreed to allow the Christ-
mas Hamper to use the building exclusively in De-
cember for 40 years. There was a matching donation
of $75,000 from the Community Facilities Enhance-
ment Grant. A $23,000 grant from Travel Alberta was
secured, to reimburse the Society for half their media
and marketing costs, and payment of that is expected
soon.
Bylaw Committee member Brenda Knight outlined
that she attended an Alberta Agricultural Society By-
law meeting and commented that the Strathmore
and District Ag Society needed to update two of the
bylaws and send away two amendments developed
at the previous general meeting. She suggested that
members of various committees might beneft from
a review of bylaws, policies and procedures. The Al-
berta Agricultural Society Members Handbook www1.
agric.ab.ca encourages committee heads and directors
to make all members aware of the bylaws and society
guidelines. Knight challenged the directors to keep
the committees on track. There was discussion about
committee processes and procedures for hiring appli-
cants for new positions. Members wanted a time line
for the hiring of a bookkeeper.
“There is still the intention to hire a bookkeeper.
We are still straightening things out,” said Human Re-
sources Committee spokesman Mike Lloyd.
Some members felt that the ag grounds needed
more use year round.
“This is a public organization. The rodeo and camp-
ground is all we do. What is the cost for that?” asked
member John Portail.
It was suggested that an event planner could be re-
tained to coordinate Heritage Days activities and other
events that might be developed. Another suggestion
was to utilize a promoter to develop more year round
events. One member stated that most promoters are
comfortable with a percentage or commission from
the event and a modest salary.

Rogers Communication proposed to

There was discussion on staff opera-

discussion at the next Annual General
Meeting under unfnished business.
The 2012 Financial Report outlined
that the Statute of Incorporation and
Purpose of the organization was to be
a non-proft organization, incorporat-
ed under the Agricultural Societies Act
of the Province of Alberta and operate
community facilities, organize agricul-
tural activities, including fairs and ro-
deos and support rural development,
leadership and training activities. All
activities intended to support agricul-
ture and improve the quality of life in
agricultural communities.
Pascal Del Guercio suggested a re-
view of the governance model take
place, to see if it was the most effec-
tive operating model to meet the soci-
ety’s purpose. He suggested growth,
keeping up with the competition and
spectator draw was diffcult when the
society was always facing fnancial cut-
backs. He said expensive mistakes in
the past needed to be addressed and
a checks and balance procedure put
in place to increase fnancial account-
ability. He challenged the board to be-
come more dynamically involved. He
suggested a Steering Committee devel-
opment that assists in planning, devel-
opment of infrastructure, think tanks,
discussions for growth, and budget ex-
penditure assessment. The committee
would have fve members comprised
of the President, Vice President, Gen-
eral Manager, Rodeo Chairman and
one member at large. He said consulta-
tions by key people with experience in
the various areas under consideration
could also be helpful.
He outlined some possible goals for
the New Year:
• North gate area cleanup
• Campground beautifcation
• Relocation of grounds mainte-
nance shop
• Restructured grounds fencing
• Upgrade and construction of new
infeld seating
• Source out event development for
revenue generation
• Develop a marketing and promo-
tional program
• Develop a watchdog mechanism
to enforce accounting checks and bal-
ances
“We are all volunteers and we really
need to develop a team atmosphere,
so we can all enjoy the valuable time
we donate and share in our overall
success. Let’s work together and make
some positive changes,” said Pascal
Del Guercio.
The meeting concluded with the vot-
ing and election of new offcers.

Times Reporter
After last week’s tragedy, one
Crowther Memorial Junior High teach-
er just knew she had to do something.
The wake left by the violence on Dec.
14 in Newtown, Connecticut has many
questioning the senseless act, and won-
dering how they can help. Gunman
Adam Lanza went into a Sandy Hook
Elementary school classroom, killing
20 students and six staff members, be-
fore killing himself.
The tragedy hit close to home for
everyone, whether a member of the
small Connecticut community or not,
and since the deaths, prayers, love and
support have been sent to the surviv-
ing families.
“I decided yesterday (Dec. 16) that
I better consider this and know some-
thing about it and probably the kids
were going to need to do something,”
said Michelle Baragar.
Students and staff were contacted
in any means possible, through email,
phone calls and Facebook groups.
They were asked to wear green and
white, which are Sandy Hook Elemen-
tary school’s colours, as a way of show-
ing their support to the families.
“Then we had green ribbons avail-
able for any sort of donation. We saw
donations everything from a nickel to
kids bringing in $20 bills saying things
like my mom sent this,” said Baragar.
The entire school body supported
the idea and did what they could to
help out through the week. Baragar
said the students need a way to pro-
cess something like this much like us
adults do.
She had been teaching Grade 7
homeroom when the Columbine
school shooting happened in 1999. She
remembers for most of the following
day her students needed to talk about
it, and were trying to make sense of
what happened.
She said there is that desire to do
something but then being so far away
it can be tough to fgure out what to
do.
First thing Monday morning (Dec.
17) the students wanted to talk about
what had happened.
“I said to them you know I respect
you guys, you put on your big boy
boots and you put on your big girl
boots and you came through the doors
of the school today after everything
you’ve just seen on TV and the internet
this weekend about what can happen
to you at school and I respect the cour-
age that took even if you didn’t feel
this morning that it was an act of cour-
age,” said Baragar.
On Dec. 21 Baragar closed her en-
velope and sent off a money order for
over $500 to Sandy Hook. There were
messages from students included and
a photo of the school body wearing
green and white clothing, or green rib-
bons.
“These little people are going to need
resources, there’s kids that survived
being shoved in a closet while their
teacher was gunned down, where their
little ears could hear it,” said Baragar.
“Our kids can feel like they have a
chance to feel like their doing some-
thing, small though it may be. We’ll
send it to them to use how they see ft.”

SNOW CLEARING UPDATE
Citizens may notice some changes in how snow plowing/removal is completed from
previous years. As per Council’s revised Winter Street Maintenance Policy in 2011, snow
plowing and then removal (as required) will be initiated in the following sequence:
1. Essential services access
2. Priority 1 routes – arterial routes
3. Priority 2 routes – collector routes
4. School zones
5. Areas where traffc fow is impeded
6. Town parking lots
Attention will be given to removal of snow from the central business district roadways
after priority roadways have been plowed. Wherever possible, the Town will take rea-
sonable steps to notify citizens of snow clearing efforts, by placing signs when clearing/
removal is to occur.
Accumulated snow in front of private driveways and entrances caused by Town plowing
is the responsibility of the owner to remove and will only be removed by the Town when:
1. Natural fow of storm water is blocked
2. In the event that the road or boulevard exceeds snow storage capacity
For more information, please refer to the Winter Street Maintenance Policy

Me to We club remembers Kenya
Jenna Campbell
Times Contributor
Grade 12 student Paige Rist remem-
bers a little girl named Angela when
she looks back on her volunteer-based
trip to Osenetoi, Kenya from last sum-
mer.
The 10-year-old from Osenetoi
walked with her classmates past Rist
and other volunteers from Strathmore
High School. Angela stopped in front
of Rist and said, “You’re going to be my
friend.”
“When we got to meet the kids, they
all waited in line as we walked up,”
said Rist, “as soon as the teacher said
it was okay, they literally swarmed us
with hugs.”
Rist said Angela had the biggest
smile on her face and covered it with
her hands —something that she often
did.
“She ran to me and said ‘rafki’ which
means ‘friend’ in Swahili.”
Rist said that Angela was one of the
girls she thought of when she raised
money for Me to We’s penny drive. The
club will be sending donations that will
be used to purchase supplies to build
classrooms in Osenetoi.
“Every day that we got to go play
with them, she did the same thing. She
would light up and run to me. She was
amazing,” said Rist
The Me to We club started collecting
donations penny by penny. Slowly the
money accumulated into over $1,500,
which Christine Magill, Strathmore
High School teacher and Me to We club
organizer said makes a substantial dent
in the school’s building project. Magill
said the average cost to build a class-
room in Osenetoi is $8,500.
The Me to We club is connected to
Free the Children, a charity organiza-
tion that has made an agreement with
the Kenyan government: for every
classroom that is built, a Kenyan teach-
er will be provided, said Magill.
The group of students from Strath-
more who volunteered this past sum-
mer helped build two classrooms. Ma-
gill said two Kenyan “fundis” who were
the foremen in the construction pro-
cess supervised the group.
“[The work involved] mixing con-
crete, laying stones for walls, digging—
we did a lot of digging to build the
walls and put the foundation in.”
The students buried a loonie in the
in the foundation of the classroom, just
like how they put a loonie in under the
ice in the Olympics, said Magill.
Rist said building the classrooms
was diffcult, even though the students
worked during the Kenyan winter sea-
son.
“It was sort of a physical surprise, it
was so worth it because the kids were
at the school the whole time,” said Rist,
“there was so much motivation. No one
really cared how hard it was.”
Back in Canada and into frst semes-
ter, Rist was given the opportunity to
speak at Free the Children’s Alberta We
Day on Oct. 24.
Rist said she felt very lucky to be
amongst the other speakers that were
very famous. The 2012 Alberta We
Day’s speakers included talk show host
Larry King, pop singer Lights and the
musical group Marianas Trench, among
others. Rist said she spoke of Angela
when she addressed the crowd of over
20,000 people.
“It wasn’t just speaking to a bunch of
people, it was speaking to a bunch of
people who understood and who were
trying to help just like I was.”
Rist said the Me to We’s penny drive
was the frst fundraiser that she took
Strathmore High School Students me to We club members at their Xmas party. The club was also
celebrating their success in raising over $1,500.

Dental plaque starts at the gum line. When
you are brushing, aim the bristles at the gum
line moving the brush in a circular motion so
that you sweep the plaque away from the gums.
Move systematically from tooth to tooth so that
each tooth and gum area gets attention. Spend
at least two minutes on your teeth twice daily.
Fish oil supplements containing omega-3 fatty
acids can lower triglycerides a type of fat in the
blood. The dose is usually 4 grams per day.
However, the use of fsh oils to lower the risk
of heart attacks doesn’t have the same proof.
There are other sure ways of lowering heart at-
tack risk: stop smoking, control blood pressure
and cholesterol and regular exercise.
Abstaining from alcohol during pregnancy is
one of the best ways of preventing birth defects
and developmental disorders of which fetal al-
cohol syndrome (FAS) is the most severe. The
message is simple; if you are pregnant, don’t
drink alcohol.
It has been proven that exercise lowers the
risk of cancer. The message is getting through
to many people but those undergoing cancer
treatment can also beneft. It doesn’t have to
be a high intensity workout but even gentle
exercise could help with a sense of well-being,
often hard to feel during cancer therapy.

Standing up to violent crime
Kevin SorenSon, M.P., Crowfoot
Parliamentary Report
As we head into the Christmas holidays I wish
everyone all the blessings that time spent with
families bring. In the wake of the tragedy in Con-
necticut, we will all hug each other tighter this
year. I am glad to be at home in our riding and
looking forward to visiting Consort, Altario, Han-
na, Three Hills, and Stettler by year’s end. Thank
you to everyone who took the time to attend our
Crowfoot Constituency offce Christmas Open
House.
By the time you are reading my news column,
it will have been several days that communities
across North America have been suffering from
the emotional shock of the school massacre in
Connecticut. As your Member of Parliament, I feel
that it is important for me to speak up and remind
everyone about the work that I have been doing
on our behalf as our federal representative to pro-
tect Canadians from violent crime.
We have strong political views in Alberta. We
agree on many political issues. Alberta consistent-
ly elects federal candidates (and political parties)
that offer a ‘tough on crime’ agenda. When I was
frst elected as your MP, the Canadian Alliance was
the Offcial Opposition in Ottawa. Politically, we
were offering, more or less the same strong anti-
crime platform that our current Conservative gov-
ernment is implementing today.
One of my duties early in my tenure was the
shadow-cabinet position of Solicitor General Crit-
ic. My colleagues and I in the Offcial Opposition
prodded the Liberal government to: raise the age
of consent to protect the young and vulnerable
from predators; add mandatory minimum penal-
ties for the use of a frearm in the commission of
a crime; end the use of ‘home jail’ for violent of-
fenders; get tough on repeat offenders; and many
other things.
All of these policy changes had already been
given wide-spread political support at the ballot
box in Alberta for many years. It was diffcult for
us to watch the Chretien Liberals ignore our posi-
tion. Our displeasure was aggravated by the bil-
lions of dollars the Liberals spent on the failed
long-gun registry over many years. We wanted
these funds to be spent on combating crime; pro-
viding victim’s services; crime prevention; social
services; and more.
Since being elected to government in 2006, the
Liberal-New Democrat-Bloc Quebecois political
coalition in the House of Commons did every-
thing they could to prevent our new Conserva-
tive government from making progress on our
criminal justice policy agenda. We passed our frst
so-called “omnibus bill” called the Tackling Vio-
lent Crime Act following our re-election as a mi-
nority government. This Bill was a collection of
several bills that the Opposition Coalition refused
to pass previously, but were ‘shamed’ into allow-
ing to pass into law after the Canadian electorate
again gave our Conservative Party the ‘go-ahead’
to make these criminal law changes.

Christmas time is a time to spend with family
members. For many, their pet is one of the family
and what better gift would there be than to extend
the years spent together?
Certifed and Accredited Strathmore veterinar-
ian, Dr. Kathleen Airth has dedicated 30 years to
helping pets and their owners accomplish that gift.
She says that 99 per cent of her business is house
calls, although she has arrangements to use surgi-
cal suites and diagnostic rooms with a local veteri-
narian facility, if necessary. She also began offering
integrated alternative modalities of acupuncture,
chiropractic and Chinese herbal medicine for pets,
through her home based business Paws Holistic
since 1997.
“Acupuncture has been around for thousands of
years and that modality hasn’t changed that much,
in the sense we still use the basic philosophies,”
said Airth. The science behind acupuncture is quite
extensive.”
Pet owners can sense something is wrong by
watching the pet’s mobility, energy level, and food
intake. Think of your pet in the best of health and
monitor changes to that. Changes may be a signal
to have it evaluated.
When Airth sees an animal, she assesses it from
the information the owner gives and clues of how
the animal presents itself. Diagnosis and treatment
involves more than addressing one presenting
symptom. Chinese medicine factors in every organ
system and the connecting energy vectors. Depend-
ing what the animal is presenting to Airth, she will
go down a particular direction of herbal frame-
work. She also relies on her veterinarian intuition.
“So much of it is intuition. You have to be very
in tune with the pet. The people that come in with
the longest list and the most information is very
helpful. We have to read the pet, as the pets cannot
speak for themselves, “said Airth.
She said human acupuncture is very similar.
However, certifed veterinary practitioners learn
to apply it to animal physiology and anatomy. She
also assesses diet and lifestyle of the pet and helps
teach the owners how to maintain their pet’s health.
Commitment by the owner to follow through with
treatment and care is an essential component of
recovery and continued health. She often uses sup-
plements and blends of Chinese herbs, developed
by Dr. Steve Marsden, a reputable, world-renowned
veterinarian from Edmonton. She recommends the
Marsden brand, as she has noticed a difference in
results when lower quality herbs are used.
“Chinese herbs can be thought of acupuncture in
the bottle, because it flls in the gap between treat-
ments,” said Airth.
Cats can live from 15-20 years and dogs 13-15.
She has seen so many cases of animals that may
have had shortened lives, if they did not have the
integrated treatment process. She usually begins to
see results within three to four appointments, de-
pending on the severity of the illness.
She remembers treating a 4.5-year-old Golden
Retriever that had jawbone cancer. Through treat-
ment, its life extended to ten years. A 13-year-old
terrier cross, with injuries to the patella and liga-
ments came to her. After three months of integrated
treatment, the injury fully healed. She said that se-
verely ill animals need risk assessments. Surgical
treatments often age the animal prematurely, but
may be necessary. A judgement of what treatment
will give the animal the best quality of life is part of
the decision factor. When the pet is young, it gives
to the owner. When it ages or grows ill, the owner
has a chance to give back to the pet.
She has had many success stories with modalities
that aren’t addressed by traditional methods.
“I have so many ah-ha moments,” said Airth. “It
is so rewarding to see the restoration of behaviour
that would only be expected from a younger pet.
There are still parts about acupuncture that we
don’t understand and it still works beyond what
science can explain for us.”
She has even seen pets that develop similar ill-
nesses as their owners. She thinks it is because
there is a deep bond between them.
“It is a level of commitment a lot of people have
to their pets. When you look into their eyes you see
their little souls, as they mature they begin to look
at you differently. They grow with you and develop
a bond. It may be part of the human-pet bond that
goes beyond human comprehension,” said Airth.

Fule for Thought
An old saying goes something like this: “you can
pick your friends, but you can’t pick your family.”
There were many times growing up that I’m sure
my brother would have wanted a “do-over” in pick-
ing out his kid brother. I am two years younger than
him, and I made up for it by learning to be quick with
a comment, and even quicker with my feet. I often
tagged along with him and his pals, and I loved to
tease them! Most of you know I can’t swim, and on
one outing with my brother and his buds, my teas-
ing of one of the bigger guys went sour. He liter-
ally grabbed me, and since we were on the edge of
the Bow River … he held me over the current! Of
course, I stopped the teasing, and upon release, ran
far enough away to start another verbal attack. I think
the day ended with a camp-out in our back yard. I’m
not sure what I said then, but it was enough for my
brother to drill me in the head with a “D” battery.
Actually, the way he threw, I’m surprised he hit me
between the eyes! Oops there I go again, with the
sarcasm!
Growing up in Canmore, none of the Fules could
swim. No, that’s not quite accurate, our dog Rusty
could swim great. He was a border collie mix, and
looked like a miniature “Lassie.”
I tried everything, but Rusty always liked my broth-
er Gary more than me. I would be bringing him food
or treats, and then he’d bail on me as soon as my
brother got home. Gary and I would build things with
Lego often, and Rusty took a liking to these pieces.
Now, if you’ve built with Lego before, you know
there are different sized pieces, and you need certain
ones to fnish a project. It never failed, I would need
a specifc Red one, and Rusty would be chewing on
it in front of me. The ONLY way I’d get a chance to
see that piece again, was to wait a day. Sure enough,
there on our back lawn would be a mangled, chewed
Lego piece IN one of his droppings! No matter what
you were building, or how long you’d have to wait for
allowance money … it was not worth it to try and get
back that piece!
My brother had an adventurous side … I did not.
He now lives in Vancouver, and after selling his busi-
ness, hopes to retire and have a large sail boat for
the ocean. This must’ve been in his blood back in
his Grade 4 year, because he and a pal had secretly
been building a raft. On the last day of school for the
summer, he left his report card on the table, swore
me to secrecy, and went rafting with his friend. Now
strangely, Gary’s rafting location was one of Can-
more’s large sewer ponds! If you’ve never been near
a sewer pond, it is absolutely the most strong, hor-
rendous smell imaginable … you can almost TASTE
it! My dad was home from the mine and asked where
Gary was. Now in my version, I sweated out hours
before I told Dad. In Gary’s (version), he feels I threw
him “under the bus” in minutes! My dad as the typical,
gentle, nurturing 1970s dad spanked ME for not tell-
ing him right away! Sniffing, I watched him lumber
away in his 1948 F-150. I hoped it was loud enough
for Gary to hear it coming … but no such luck. I do
not know the particulars of my dad catching Gary
rafting on the open sewer seas, but I do know he
was back pretty fast. Again with the spank … only
THIS time it was Gary! I had slunk away by now, be-
ing the accomplice to this major crime. When I did
walk by, my brother was kneeling in his soccer shorts
on popcorn seeds! Yes, my dad must’ve been reading
some new parenting book (probably in Hungarian)
… and he had come up with this ingenious punish-
ment. Gary never rafted in the sewer lagoon again,
and also did not confde in me much, either!
My brother and I shared a room as kids … big
mistake. We fought often, and would then not talk to
each other for long periods of time. One of our fa-
vorite games however, involved simple things. Nowa-
days, kids need gadgets, organized sports or activities
… but not us 70’s kids, we MADE our toys (weapons).
We had a great light, dead center in our room, and it
hung by a rubber cord, so that it could be at different
heights. It also swung really well, so we decided it
would be a great addition to our pillow battles. The
rule of the game was that you had to stand on your
bed and fght, BUT we pulled the light down to fore-
head height and swung it hard. You’d have to battle
with the pillow, not give up ground, all while duck-
ing the swinging light! I did not have a strong sense
of peripheral vision at this young age. The swinging
light and NOT the pillow hit me RIGHT between the
eyes! There seemed to be a bright glow on impact, I
swear I heard bells, or was it angels singing? I don’t
remember falling … but I did. There was a fairly large
gash in my forehead, so luckily, having longer 70’s
hair, I plastered it over the cut. I had HEARD my
dad spank Gary for rafting, SEEN the popcorn seeds
… I did NOT want to live through what my dad had
learned in Chapter 2 of his parenting book!

To the Editor
In the short 17 years I’ve lived in the Strathmore
area, I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting some
of the … more mature members of our community.
I’ve heard many stories of these folks and their fami-
lies from the years this community was being devel-
oped. Many of these stories were personal and humor-
ous, others were of the trials and tribulations these
families faced throughout the years. Hearing these
stories from people you know about the community
you live in brings a certain sense of pride and vitality.
Now, thanks to Strathmore resident, author and
teacher, Paul Sonsteby, we can all share in these stories
and many more. The coffee table style book, authored
by Paul Sonsteby, 100 Years of Memories, offers the
reader a relaxing trip into the history of Strathmore,
and gives the same sense of pride and vitality as the
stories themselves. It allows your imagination to take

you back in time as you recognize a name you have heard before,
or a place near your present home, or even an annual event you
once took part in, or maybe still take part in!
Whether you’re a transplant from another part of the country
or world, or have lived your whole life, long or short, in these
parts; its books like 100 Years of Memories that allow us to put
any and all differences aside to see what we all have in common:
the establishment of a community. As we continue to build this
community, we should all keep in mind, that if we have an idea of
where we’ve been, it becomes possible to map out the direction
we’re going!

Today, in the 41st Parliament, my colleagues
and I are proceeding methodically and carefully
with our agenda of protecting Canadians. We
are going after pedophiles, bullies (including cy-
ber-bullies), human smugglers, drug traffckers,
white collar criminals, and more.
I wish that my comments could be more posi-
tive and helpful at this time. As your MP, I felt an
obligation to remind us all that we are the ones
that want to stand up against those who would
harm us. That is the job I ran for, and it is the
work that you elected me to accomplish.

Ron’s family started life in
London, England but moved
to Quebec City in 1818, arriv-
ing just after the War of 1812.
After a number of years they
moved frst to Montreal, then
to the Ottawa Valley, where
free land and land grants
were available. This land was
very productive, and good for
growing crops including veg-
etables and feed for cattle.
Family history shows that
fve or six families made the
move from Montreal. The fam-
ily name of the time was ‘Ser-
vige,’ with the mother com-
ing from the family name of
‘Kitchen.’
By the early 1900’s, mar-
riage between these immi-
grants enabled the surname
‘Howard’ to come into being.
Ron was born in 1944, in To-
ronto, but attended school
while living on a farm about
60 miles east of the Toronto.
He moved back to Scarbor-
ough in 1957. He joined the
Air Cadets in 1958, then the
Canadian Army at Camp Bor-
den in 1963. This is where he
took his basic training and
trades training. Extensive cov-
erage of Ron’s military career
appeared in the Strathmore
Times published on Nov. 9,
2012.
While serving at Iserlohn,
West Germany in 1965, he met
his wife to be, Joanna, and
RemembeRing ouR RootS
Ron & Joanna Howard
they were married in Scarbor-
ough, Ontario in 1967. This
wedding produced a son and
a daughter, who in turn have
provided three grandchildren.
Joanna was born in Salis-
bury, Wiltshire, which is in
Southern England in 1942,
and following her adoption at
age fve, she moved to Leices-
ter, where she grew up. After
leaving school, she spent 13
months be-
ing trained
at Dr. Bar-
nado’s, as
a house
mother. She
moved to
West Germa-
ny in 1963,
and became
a nanny for
the Brigade
Major, British
Col dst ream
Guards, for
the next four
years. During
this time, she met Ron, and as
indicated above, they were
married in 1967.
In 1970, they moved to Cal-
gary, where Ron worked as
a storeman for the Calgary
Board of Education, for the
next 27 years. Meantime, Jo-
anna worked in the hospital-
ity industry for 23 years, in
major downtown Calgary ho-
tels, like the Westin.
To this day, Ron is still very
involved in all kinds of mili-
tary activities – with both the
Air Cadets here in Strathmore,
the Army Cadet League of
Canada, and serves as the sec-
retary/treasurer of The Lord
Strathcona’s Horse (Royal
Canadians). He says that be-
ing retired doesn’t seem to
have made his work load any
lighter!
Since moving here, he has
noticed how much the town
has grown, and to keep up
with new in-
frastructure,
p r o p e r t y
taxes have
greatly in-
creased. The
new mall on
the east side
of town, and
housing de-
velopments
all around
are good for
Strathmore.
For inter-
est sake –
Ron told me
of a family of four relatives
who made the ill-fated voy-
age on the Titanic. Three went
down with the ship – the fa-
ther Hudson Allison, his wife
Beth, and their daughter Lor-
raine (age 3). But, their son
Trevor who was still a baby
survived, because he was
placed in a lifeboat with his
nurse. He lived until age 17
(1929) before dying of pto-
maine poisoning. He’s buried
beside his father at Chester-
ville, Ontario.

The Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
station north of Strathmore offers a 33
cent per litre savings, to those who want
to foot the bill for their vehicle conver-
sion.
“The standard used for dispensing the
gas is in kilograms. Mileage and per-
formance is equivalent to gasoline. The
driver experience and the vehicle experi-
ence are similar,” said David Hill, Encana
Vice President, Natural Gas Economy.
Encana has 43 company vehicles using a
bi-fuel conversion and they recently had
their frst private CNG customer at the
Strathmore site.
The cost of CNG is 99 cents per kilo-
gram, it equates to about 66 cents per
litre. According to www.wiki.answers.
com the average Canadian drives about
17,500 km per year. The average pickup
consumes .12 litres per km. Therefore,
a gas purchase of 2100 litres per year
would see about $693 in savings.
“If you have a credit card and natu-
ral gas vehicle you can use it .We would
love to meet them out there and train
them how to use it. It is not hard, but it
is a different fueling process. It seems
intimidating, but actually, it is not. Some
people might be scared, but don’t be. We
will show you how to connect it up and
push the button and soon they will say
‘That was easy’”, said Hill.
The number for help at the Strathmore
CNG pump is 1-855-645-2188.
The CNG gas is similar to the gas that
comes into our homes. It is an alternative
fuel like propane, but propane comes
in liquid form, at a moderate pressure,
and ambient temperature. CNG is com-
pressed gas, high pressure, and fuels
into a codes and standards cylinder. The
tank looks like a scuba tank. It is made
out of carbon steel and mounts perma-
nently to the vehicle’s chassis for safety
reasons.
“We show them the codes and stan-
dards, show them the tank, show how it
bolted onto the frame and show all the
safety features around the tank. The safe-
ty record of natural gas as a fuel is ex-
emplary. It is actually harder to combust
than diesel or gasoline,” said Hill.
They have odourized the gas, so it has
a smell if it there is a leak. It is the same
treatment as gas used at home. Hill said
in his knowledge, in the US and Canada,
there have been near zero incidents relat-
ed to a natural gas release. Any that have
occurred were through non-certifed con-
ditions. While conversion kits exist on the
internet, he stressed that people make
sure they use a certifed mechanic and
certifed installation service. Encana uses
Hi-Tech out of Edmonton. Nick Nystrom
from Hi-Tech said it is about $12,500 to
convert a vehicle and is completed in two
to three days. www.hitecfuelsystems.com
There are two types of consumer instal-
lations, a dedicated system that only uses
natural gas, or the bi-fuel, which keeps
the regular gasoline system and adds
the natural gas injector system. He said
the Honda Civic uses a dedicated system
and Dodge sells ¾ 1500 pick-up in a bi-
fuel model. The bi-fuel system allows the
owner to utilize conventional fuel in ar-
eas where no CNG station is available; at
least until the infrastructure catches up.
Hill said it is a chicken and the egg pro-
cess: putting in the station, using com-
pany vehicles, getting the word out to
communities so they use it, so they can
build more stations.
Hill said CNG is a green alternative
fuel.
“We normally see a well to wheel anal-
ysis, anywhere from a 20 to 30 per cent
reduction in CO2 to traditional gasoline,”
said Hill.
“We are seeing the auto industry start-
ing to recognize the industry is moving
again,” said Hill. People can check out
the availability of stations at www.gow-
ithnaturalgas.com. Follow the links un-
der STATIONS. A new CNG station will
be going up in Drumheller in January.
There is a CN pilot project using Liq-
uefed Natural Gas (LNG), which is simi-
lar to diesel. Trucks from BC supply
fuel two locomotives running between
Edmonton and Fort McMurray. They are
looking at results of the fuel use in high
horsepower applications. Any business
that uses diesel can call Encana for de-
tails how to set up a similar trial. The
company will be setting up a liquefac-
tion plant in Northwest Alberta by the
end of next year.

It was in 2010 when Andy and Christina Stender created
Crowfoot Ag Solutions. The pair, who have partnered with
Greg Andrukow, were happy to ‘plant the seed’ on Dec. 18
when they broke ground at their new facility location. The
new location is just off of Hwy 1 and Hwy 21. It was an excit-
ing day for the three partners.
“Very (excited). It’s been a long two years of waiting,” said
Christina Stender.
“It’s a market we’re familiar with. This particular location
provides us with two well-travelled highways. It’s fairly cen-
trally located for our customer base,” said Andy Stender.
Crowfoot Ag Solutions is an agricultural input retailer, focus-
ing predominately on fertilizers, crop protection products and
seed.
“Basically we want to get to the point that we’re utilizing the
assets that we’re building today,” said Andy.
“The industry is continually changing so we feel we’re in a
position where we can easily and quickly adapt to either mar-
ket changes or changes in agriculture in general. So whether
that means retailing different types of seed or expanding our
Planting the seed
facilities to include different types of fertilizer or what have
you.
“We’re a locally owned and operated company and so if we
don’t like where we’re headed at lunch time we can change it
by two o’clock.”
The frst structure is the offce and warehouse, which will
be ready in early spring next year. Andy said the plan to also
build a fertilizer facility that will be the frst of its kind in
Canada. The new facility will be a dome structure with interior
blending capabilities. Stender said there are lots of domes in
Canada, but none that are utilized for fertilizer and for the
blending of multiple products. Construction of the dome will
begin in the late spring with a completion date set for the
summer.
Tidbits of our
1 January - The Y2K Command Centre was set up in the fre hall. Representa-
tives from ATCO Gas, Transalta, the RCMP, the Fire Department, the Town of
Strathmore, and County of Wheatland waited for the feared computer disas-
ter. However, like the rest of the world, Strathmore was largely unaffected by
the transition out of the 1990s.
15 January - A hockey game on
the outdoor rink pitted married
men against single men. The
bachelors - possibly with a bit
more time to practise and a bit
more energy at the end of the day
- won 6 - 1.

Does Airdrie need a community crisis centre?
That is the question many members of the community are
asking. City council is currently examining the needs of its
residents to see if Airdrie could beneft from a crisis shelter.
Airdrie Mayor Peter Brown and domestic violence survivor
Miranda McMullen visited the Wheatland Shelter—The Com-
munity Crisis Centre of Strathmore on Dec. 11.
Strathmore Mayor Steve Grajczyk toured Brown and Mc-
Mullen throughout the facility that has been made available
to Strathmore community since 1993.
“It is defnitely something that every community should
have and ours is a model that I’m really proud of,” said Gra-
jczyk, “as a matter of fact High River used it as a model.”
Brown said the intention behind the visit was to get an
idea of how crisis shelters operate, how they are funded and
what kind of staffng levels are required.
Brown said he was particularly amazed by Wheatland
Shelter’s history in its preliminary years. The operation of
the facility depended on donations for funding and it was
completely run by volunteers.
“[I have] nothing but respect for the people who work
there and I like the way the facility is integrated within the
community.”
There are several reasons why location is important, said
Brown. Airdrie’s close proximity to Calgary allows commu-
nity members to visit shelters throughout the city.
“From what I’ve heard from different people… many peo-
ple that are experiencing domestic violence will stay as a
victim rather than uprooting their children and moving to
a new community,” said Brown, “it’s already a tremendous
stress on their kids and they do not want to change schools
and things like that.”
In order for a victim who is without a car to fee to a shel-
ter in Calgary, the cab fare can be anywhere up to $150 said
McMullen.
“We do have a lot of community support here in Airdrie
such as Community Links, they have many great programs
for victims however, no shelter.”
When McMullen was escaping her abusive relationship,
she said there were many instances where a crisis shelter
could have been helpful.
McMullen spoke at the Light the Night event in Airdrie
Nov. 15 in support of Family Crisis Prevention Month at the
Community Links offce location.
“That night sparked a lot of discussion in Airdrie and with-
in the community in getting resources out here that we don’t
have that Calgary and Strathmore and area do have.”
Constable Francine Hennelly of Airdrie’s Domestic Vio-
lence Unit said she would love to work in partnership with a
community crisis shelter and that it would largely impact in-
Strathmore showcases
local crisis shelter
dividuals and families who are currently involved with fam-
ily violence situations.
The Airdrie RCMP respond to many cases of domestic vio-
lence each week, said Hennelly.
“I can confrm this much: every year our stats are growing,
the number of cases we are responding to are growing,” said
Hennelly, “they can range from fairly innocuous type situa-
tions like a property dispute to a situation where we have an
assault or an assault with weapons.”
“This year we had a case where we responded to a murder
suicide situation so Airdrie is defnitely a busy community
for domestic violence.”
If Airdrie were to have a crisis centre within the commu-
nity, “we would as RCMP members rest easier knowing that
the victims are safe in shelters,” said Hennelly.
“At times they remain with their abusers because they feel
there is no other escape. And too, interviewing for police
and interviewing people out of a shelter is sometimes a bet-
ter place than interviewing someone at a police station or in
that person’s residence.”
The need for a crisis centre in Airdrie is defnitely appar-
ent, said Hennelly.
“I’m really hoping that the mayor and whoever else is
looking into this project at this point gets it underway.”
Brown said he asked for a report at the last council meet-
ing to look into the details of whether or not a shelter could
be a sustainable within the city and identify what particular
needs of the community need to be met.
“We want to make sure we are doing everything we can
to support victims of domestic violence,” said Brown, “and
whether that equates to a women’s shelter here in Airdrie,
I’m not sure.”

There is a possibility that Langdon
could be looking at a new grocery store,
but it is too early to be confrmed.
“Numerous companies have done the
due diligence on the grocery store,”
says David Kalinchuk, the economic
development manager for Rocky View
County, “A portion of those have said
this is a market place they are inter-
ested in.”
Nothing has been offcially confrmed
or denied yet, but Kalinchuk says there
could be a place for a grocery store in
Langdon.
“Communities like Langdon have
such a dynamic and growing popula-
tion, they’re seen as being very attrac-
tive up-and-coming communities,” Ka-
linchuk says.
Ashley Harper, a resident of Langdon,
says both she and her husband are hop-
ing their town will get a grocery store
soon.
“I do think [getting a grocery store]
will be benefcial,” said Harper, “it will
open up more jobs in the community
for the community.”
Having a grocery store, or any ame-
nity, “adds to the attractiveness of the
community.” Quality of life for resi-
dents also increases with the addition
of any amenity, and in some cases they
can add to the ability of consumers to
carry on their consumer transactions
more effciently since residents would
be able to get all their goods and ser-
vices locally.
Kalinchuk explains that any poten-
tial business looking to open have to
do their homework. Businesses have to
have a certain amount of people they
can rely on to use their business con-
sistently, and each business has a dif-
ferent minimum amount of people they
look for.
After looking at a large range of data
to determine how many people can
potentially use the business, then the
business can decide more effectively if
opening is a possibility.
“Residents in the community consis-
tently look for something [like a gro-
cery store],” says Kalinchuk.
Langdon has a great proximity to
many things including Calgary, major
roads and major industrial areas. Ka-
linchuk says the community has an an-
ticipation for new services as Langdon
grows.
“With the current and proposed con-
struction of new homes in Langdon, it’s
very attractive for businesses,” Kalin-
chuk says.
The more Langdon grows, the more
businesses will begin to look at com-
ing to the community. The population
growth of Langdon is “steady,” the qual-
ity of homes is “constantly higher and
higher” and the tax rates are “compa-
rable” which all makes Langdon a good
possibility.
Kalinchuk says that a community like
Langdon has “such great curb appeal”
because of the nice community and
friendly people, and those factors may
tempt an entrepreneur or a developer
to want to open in that type of environ-
ment.
Harper says that there are many ben-

efts to living in Langdon, such as the
smaller class sizes for students, and
the freedom. The biggest beneft is the
people in the community, who Harper
says are very “friendly” and will “smile
at you or say hi, even if you don’t know
them.”
“It’s very relaxed and calming here,”
says Harper, who also loves the abun-
dance of services that can be offered,
from the volunteer fre department to
the local businesses.
“I would still use my smaller specialty
stores,” says Harper, but she also thinks
that having a large grocery store would
make more products available to resi-
dents.

Teddy bear toss helps bring
comfort to local shelter
Shannon LeCLair
Times Reporter
The Teddy Bear toss, which is a popular
hockey fundraiser, came to Strathmore on
Dec. 15. The Wheatland Kings played against
High River and asked people to bring a teddy
with them to toss on the ice after the frst goal
was scored. The teddy bears were then to be
donated to the Community Crisis Society.
Aaron Durant scored the frst goal against
High River 26 seconds into the game. Non-
perishable food items were also requested as
donations at the game for the Strathmore and
District Christmas Hamper Society. Anyone
who brought a food item unwrapped or $25
gift donation got into the game for free.
Cheryl McCorrister, one of the child and
youth workers at the Crisis Shelter was pleased
to see all of the stuffed animals and teddy
bears donated.
“A lot of children are going to get these.
The kids that we have in shelter are going to
be getting teddy bears and presents and then
throughout the year when we have families
come to the shelter we like to give every child
a new pair of pajamas, a stuffed animal or a
teddy bear and a book,” said McCorrister.
The shelter is a safe haven for those in de-
structive relationships that need to get away
from their partners. For the children it can be
a scary time for them when they frst arrive
at the shelter. They may not understand fully
what is going on and any little bit of comfort,
such as a teddy, can go a long way to alleviat-
ing some of the stress.
The shelter is a stepping stone to help peo-
ple get back on their feet, while providing the
counseling and support the clients may not
get otherwise.
There are 25 spaces available, and approxi-
mately 400 people go through the shelter’s
doors each year. Half of those are children.
There is a children’s room, a teenager’s room
and a type of playroom upstairs where the
kids can play while mom is in the kitchen.
The counselors try to work with the kids on a
number of different issues.
If you would like to donate to the shelter, a
wish list can be found on the website at http://
wheatland.albertashelters.com, under oppor-
tunities.

the many team builders they have had.
