Town of Strathmore council debated on Nov. 18, whether a new study was needed to meet required 10-minute
callouts for fire protection and if building code enforcements should be adapted to meet provincial safety codes
for new growth nodes in Strathmore.
Administration was asked to research other towns
dealing with the housing/fire safety requirements and
10-minute response times for local fire crews.
They looked at eight communities, Cochrane, Lacombe,
Sylvan Lake, Canmore, High River, Camrose, Beaumont
and Chestermere, all who had fulltime and volunteer
fire personnel and whether they met the response times
of 10 minutes. Information indicated four communities
were not able to meet the 10-minute callout all the time,
two met the requirement some of the time and two met
the requirement all of the time.
Deputy CAO Linda Nelson said the the safety codes
officer contacted Alberta Municipal Affairs to discover
whether there were variances within the province, and
he stated he got no responses that communities werent
adhering to the building codes; however, they (Municipal Affairs) do not track those statistics.
They said they would not expect any community to
admit they were not compliant, summarized Nelson.
They get a lot of questions regarding this and the fire
departments ability to meet 10-minute response in their
areas. Their response was that this is a law and it is not
an option for a community to circumvent.
She said many communities were enforcing the requirements through their building codes.
Building code rules established in the late 70s and
early 80s, when commercial and residential developments were built on larger lots and with less density,
were changed when the move to smaller lot sizes and
the use of lighter weight construction materials and petroleum-based goods within the buildings increased fire
risks.
Strathmore Safety Code/Development Officer Harry
Salm said buildings are insurable in towns with structures in legal distance to fire hydrants and within 13 km
of a fire hall. If that isnt possible, internal fire sprinkler
systems can be installed. The average cost per dwelling
for the sprinkler system is about three to four dollars a
square foot. If there are water supply concerns and if
the town supply cannot support the sprinkler system,
bigger input lines would be needed or a water holding
tank and pump are needed in the house. This would increase the building cost by about $5,000-$6,000 per unit.
There are some cheaper building enhancements such as
drywall application used inside and out instead of OSB
board, window and vent placement measures and alternate exterior applications such as aluminum or stucco
which could be fire deterrents.

Rosebud loses a gem in Mexico accident


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

At 26 years old Anna Hudson had a promising future. She
had just bought a house, accumulated two dogs and cat, was
trailblazing her path as an engineer for KMC Mining in Fort
McMurray, had moved in with her boyfriend, was two weeks
away from her birthday, and was travelling to Mexico to attend her best friends wedding a trip that was supposed to
be a joyous occasion.
However, hours after arriving at the resort in Cancun, Hudsons family, who farm in Rosebud, received a phone call late
Wednesday night that stated Anna went down to the beach
with the bride and the fiance, and was caught in a rip tide
that dragged her into the ocean. Despite numerous efforts to
save her life, Hudsons body was brought in by the tide the
next morning one kilometer from where she went missing.
Nearly a week later, her boyfriend, who was with her in
Mexico, returned to Canada with Annas ashes, bringing her
home to grief-stricken family and friends that are now remembering an outgoing, family-oriented, animal-loving, energetic, confident individual.
When you grow up in the country and the door opens
it hardly every rings someone just comes in, and thats
what Anna was like, said Sherri Skibsted, who has known
the family for 24 years and whose farm is located next to
Hudsons farm.
She was a real light. She was a lot like her dad and her

dad and her were very close. I say she was her daddys girl,
she just did everything with him. Of course she was a mommys girl too, but they were so like-minded. The more days
go on, I just cant believe it.
Skibsted described Anna as a bubbly girl with a cute giggle, who was social, loved to visit her family, came home for
the holidays, and was the glue that held everyone together.
She would volunteer with her father Art Hudson, who was a
chief to the fire department, and had attended the University
of Alberta to become an engineer.
She lived up in Fort MacMurray, but made the trip as
much as she could to come home to be with her mom and
dad, Skibsted said of Anna, who also has an older brother
and a younger sister.
If we were watching a program, shed just come join us, if
we were visiting at the kitchen table, shed come in and join
in, and she was a part of the family.
Skibsted heard about the tragic events through social media and has spent much of her time since with the Hudson family. She said, according to the Hudsons, the area had
been red flagged, but Skibsted questioned the visibility and
patrol out on the beach.
Its such a shame, said Skibsted. She was smart, beautiful, her life was just beginning. I dont know how theyre
going to carry on without her.
Anna Hudsons funeral will be held on Nov. 28 at 3:30 p.m.
at the Rosebud Church. Reception will follow at the Rosebud
Hall.

Council approves new 10-minute response study


Continued From Page 1
The option of opening another fire
hall closer to new areas means a sizeable financial, equipment and manpower investment that would require a tax
burden on developers and homeowners. However, the town has currently
agreed to hire two additional firefighting staff in the near future.
Councillor Denise Pederson requested an additional fire services study,
over and above the previously submitted Behr report and Strathmore fire department report. She requested a study
focus on the implementation and interpretation of the 10-minute response
rule, with a price not exceeding $50,000
taken from the financial stabilization
fund, with information delivered within
90 days. She said this study could also
enforce the safety officers position in
dealing with developers and the public reinforcing his mandate to relay and
enforce governed building codes.
We need something better than we
currently have, said Pederson. It could
be used as a stepping stone to ensure
fire safety a decade ahead.
This is going to ensure we get the
most accurate information and protect lives and safety of people, but we
want to be sure it doesnt cripple the
economy of this town, said Councillor

Pat Fule. We have no choice but to follow these laws. If these response times
cant be met, we have no choice but to
adhere to what the Alberta government
has passed down to us. I feel bothered
by the fact that we are in controversy
on this when it has been passed down
to us. I am bothered by the fact that Mr.
Salm has had to deal with controversy
on this.
Councillor Rocky Blokland and
Councillor Bob Sobol disagreed that a
new study was necessary.
I will not be supporting this motion.
It is an endeavour to postpone the inevitable, which is the fact that we cant
respond, said Sobol. It is very clear
based on three years of statistics from
the fire department that with or without two additional firemen they will not
be able to make a 10-minute response
time. Put yourself in the position of
a firefighter sleeping in his bed at 4
a.m., understanding this (10-minute response) is not going to happen.
Living in this community for the last
12 years, I am very satisfied with the
service our firefighters provide and
feel just as safe as I did 12 years ago.
It seems we are concerned about the
building industry. I think they are a
group that is prepared to change and
adapt to whatever needs to be done.
To cover this with another study at the

cost $50,000, which is going to give us


the same information that we have, is
only a waste of money.
Council passed the motion for a new
study with Blokland and Sobol against.
Councillor Brad Walls was absent with
regrets from the Nov. 18 meeting.

Q: What is Embalming?
A: Embalming, by definition, is the process

Shoebox packing party


Weston Snider (l), a Rosebud resident, and
Rosebud School of the Arts students Cassie
Garbutt and Stephanie Lanting gathered
with other community members in Rosebud
Church on Nov. 15, to fill shoeboxes with donated hygiene items, toys, tools, and school
supplies. They packed 90 boxes, which Samaritans Purse will distribute through its
International Operation Christmas Child program, to children and teenagers in need.

of chemically treating the dead human


body to reduce the presence and growth of
microorganisms, to temporarily inhibit organic
decomposition, and to restore an acceptable
physical appearance. This process is usually
performed by injecting a formaldehyde
based chemical into the arterial system.
The formaldehyde reacts with proteins
in the body and renders them unsuitable
for microorganisms to grow on. This is
a temporary situation and the body will
eventually decompose naturally depending
on several external factors such as the type
of casket and soil conditions. Embalming is
not legally required except when transporting
across borders or with public transportation,
although many funeral homes require
embalming if there is to be a public viewing.

Town addresses aquatic centre air quality problems


SHARON
MCLEAY
Times Contributor

Condensation issues are building
up to be a problem for the aquatic
centre,
causing
damage to insulation and creating
water pools on the
upstairs mechanical room.
All pools have
similar problems,
said Tracy Simpson, reporting to
council on the issue.
She stated that
Associated Engineering had investigated
the
problems
and
determined
the
building pressurization was mov-

ing from the desirable


negative
pressure to a positive pressure migration.
This led to efflorescence frosting on exterior
walls and humidity and chemical
odors in the adjacent offices of the
Ag society office
and Chuck Mercer room. They
found the outdoor
air dampers were
sticking and the
pressure
sensor
was
incorrectly
installed and located.
The
sensor
has since been
moved and adjusted; however,
more needs to be
done. Simpson re-

quested $126,500
in order to fix
the pressurization
problems and repair damage. This
would include a
new exhaust fan
for the ventilation
system, motorized
dampers and repair of damaged
insulation
and
vapour
barrier,
along with a AHU
room heater and
fan coil, as well as
installing a new
building control
system to accommodate the new
equipment to correct the problems.

Simpson
said
this was an emergent item and
suggested council consider allowing
Associated Engineering
to complete the
work without the
process going to
tender, as they
have already researched much of
the work needed
for the project.

Capsule Comments
The first kidney transplant was performed in 1954.
It was a real milestone in medicine. Today it is a
very common procedure which saves the lives of
many and gives them back a regular life. The only
problem is that there are not enough people signing
up to be an organ donor so the demand always
outpaces the supply. If you arent already an organ
donor, consider signing up today.
Oh the ingenuity of medical researchers..
In England they have developed a capsule which
contains a spongey material. The patient swallows
the capsule which has a string attached. The capsule
dissolves and releases an expanding sponge which is
then pulled back up the esophagus and it takes cell
samples on the way up. It might provide an earlier
diagnosis for esophageal cancer.
If you have ever had shingles, its no fun. If you
have shingles, you cannot give them to another
person. But the virus causing shingles, varicella
zoster, can be spread to another person who has
never had chickenpox and actually give that person
chickenpox. Just a reminder, a person is not
infectious before the shingle blisters occur or after
the blisters have crusted over.
Chickenpox was just part of growing up in the 20th
Century. It caused a lot of misery for children and
parents alike. Today we have a chickenpox vaccine
and we also have a vaccine for shingles.
For information about vaccines for your child or
you, talk to our pharmacists. Wed be happy to tell
you what is available and how they work.

Town of Strathmore Shorts


SHARON MCLEAY
Times Contributor

Colin Huxted brought the
fruits of his labour to Strathmore town council on Nov.
18, in the form of compost
gained through a household
organics recycling project.
They gave us the opportunity and we proved we could
do it, said Huxted. This is a
class one operation and there
are a lot of requirements for
it.
Council previously gave
Huxted the go-ahead to repurpose the abandoned sewage lagoon for composting
needs. He and his staff went
through some intensive training, which he said left him
excited about the concept of
sustainable environments. He
said 40 percent of household
garbage comes from organic material and he wants to
make that useful and keep it
out of landfills. He also utilizes wood chips from recycled
lumber products.
Huxted has invested about
$200,000 in the project so far
and was asking council to
award a 10-year contract, so
that he could further develop
the process for Strathmore
resident contributions.
I dont want to wait for
the Alberta government to
tell us what to do. I want to
be ahead of them and show
them what we can do, said
Huxted.
Huxted said the rich soil
supplement that he was producing could be on sale in
spring 2016. Council awarded Huxted the 10-year contract with an agreement that
he would work with the town
administration for the project
and at the end of the 10 years
discuss options for renewal.
Huxted said one idea for the
future may be establishing a
young tree lot that would be
fed by the composted material and grow trees for town
beautification.
STALEMATE ON CO-OP

PARKING LOT
The Town of Strathmore
council turned down a
$1576.50 a month lease offer by Co-op for use of the
42,150 sq ft parking space
adjacent to the old Co-op
grocery building in downtown Strathmore.
We have had a few discussions with the about the purchase or leasing of it and this
was their offer, said Strathmore CAO Dwight Stanford.
Councilor Steve Grajczyk
countered by suggesting a $1
a year lease, with the town
agreement to remove the
snow from the lot. The offer
was directed to administration to take back to Co-op.
NEW APARTMENT FOR
STRATHMORE DOWNTOWN
The re-designation of 303
Waddy Lane from single detached residential to a medium density modest residential district was given first
reading leading to a public
hearing set for Dec. 16, 2015.
A three story, 12-unit apartment building has been proposed for the site and will be
forwarded to the Downtown
Overlay Committee for comment.
TRAFFIC COMMITTEE
PROPOSED
Councillor Bob Sobol suggested to council that a traffic
advisory committee be established to improve traffic flow
and safety in Strathmore.
Similar committees exist
in other communities and are
very effective, said Sobol.
The committee mandate
would monitor, evaluate and
advise on traffic related issues in the community.
Sobol stated he would like
to see the committee comprised of people with some
expertise and background in
the field and suggested peace
officers be considered for the
committee.
Council gave the motion
first through third and final
reading.

The Strathmore Civic


Centre was filled with
vendors and community members who
took part in the Christmas market on Nov.
22. The event also
featured face painting
and a visit with Santa
Claus.

The benefits to buying local


Holiday shopping dominates many peoples
free time between the day after Thanksgiving
and the final days before Christmas. While many
people may shop til they drop on Black Friday
and Cyber Monday, those days still account for
a relatively small amount of the hundreds of
billions of dollars that are spent each holiday
season.
Shoppers now have a bevy of options at their
disposal as they embark on holiday shopping
season. Traditional in-store retailers are still

around, and online shopping continues to grow


in popularity with each holiday season. But
many holiday shoppers are looking to buy local
this holiday season, and such a decision can pay
a host of dividends for both shoppers and the
communities they call home.
Buying local benefits your local economy.
Studies from Civic Economics, an economics
and strategics planning firm, found that
independent, locally-owned retailers return a far
greater percentage of their revenue into their
local economies than national chain stores.
Buying local creates jobs in your community.
Local businesses in your community are more
likely to employ residents of your town.
Shopping local may provide access to more
unique gifts. In addition to the economic benefits
of buying local, shoppers may find merchandise
made by local craftsmen is more unique than
mass-produced items found on the shelves of
national retailers. Recipients may cherish more
unique items that they cannot find on their
own, and that appreciation may even spur them
to visit more local retailers after the holiday
season has come and gone, benefiting their own
communities in so doing.
Local business may provide a more
personal touch. Buying from national chains
has its advantages, but customer service is not
always one of them. Should your loved ones
encounter problems with their gift that requires
assistance, they might be forced to wait on the
phone for extended periods of time as they and
thousands of others wait for customer service
representatives to answer their calls.
Buying local not only benefits small business
owners, but it also pays dividends for their
customers and the communities they call home.

SHS gearing up for another


Christmas supper
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Overwhelmed by last years unexpected turnout, nearly 50 Strathmore High
School students are putting on their
chefs hats and dusting off their aprons
once again, in an effort to continue a
former Strathmore Lions Leo Club initiative and give over a hundred residents a
true Christmas experience with the annual Community Christmas Dinner.
Over 170 individuals showed up to
the 2014 supper that was previously
organized through the Leos Club a
youth division of the Strathmore Lions.
Expecting only 120 people to attend, the
food became scarce quickly.
This year, with a low member-turnout
among the Leos, the high schools Spartan Council which also came into existence last year will carry on the tradition, the schools largest initiative.
Usually the dinner is supposed to
be for people less fortunate and who
maybe dont have the greatest Christmas
experience, said Amy Lambert, Spartan
Council Grade 12 vice-president.
This year we are making sure that its
for people whose families arent coming, or maybe they dont have a family.
Those people, where Christmas is a hard
time. Its more for people who need it
rather than people who would just like
to come.
Continuing with their turkey and ham
menu, items that are usually donated by
local grocery stories, the group of 46
is planning on introducing an updated
and fresh spin through fun salads and
vegetables. Every year, families also provide the group with the gender and age
of their children for Santa to hand out
presents during the event. Relying heav-

ily on donations from the community,


the Grade 10, 11 and 12 students are
aware that the recent downturn in the
economy may affect next weeks supper.
Thats another thing thats going to
maybe be a little bit more difficult this
year, is that maybe some companies
dont want to donate as much because
theyre maybe not doing as well as they
were last year, said Tyler Jamieson, the
Spartan Council Grade 12 community
representative. But I think you could be
worse off. Even a small donation really
means a lot to some of the people coming. Its a good deed for the community
and it warms your little heart to know
that you are doing something for people
that you know wouldnt get to have it.
Invitations will be dropped off at
schools, churches, Lambert Centre, the
lodges, and the Wheatland Crisis Society.
I know Tyler and Ive been in the
Leo Club since we came to the school
in Grade 10 and I went on a trip last
year through the Lions so the Leo Club
has given me lots of opportunities, said
Amy Lambert, Grade 12 vice president.
I think if it didnt happen this year,
it would be very different it would be
hard. I think this is one of the most fun
fundraisers we do in school. If you have
125 people and everyone of them is so
happy, its a pretty cool experience.
Because of the current economic situation, the council is expecting to serve
more families this year and is still capping their guest list at 120.
The Community Christmas Dinner will
take place on Dec. 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the
Strathmore High School. The group urges those who know anyone who could
benefit from this event to contact Darlene Reynolds at 403-934-3135.

Farmers, ranchers and their


workers want to return home
safely after working hard all day.
We want to help. Thats why were proposing changes to laws that keep farm
and ranch workers safe and ensure theyre treated fairly.

Ensuring farm and ranch accidents can be properly investigated so they


can be prevented.
Making sure farm and ranch workers can still support their families if theyre
injured on the job.
Protecting farm and ranch owners against the impact of workplace injuries
and illnesses.

If approved, laws that govern workplace safety and Workers Compensation


Board insurance coverage would apply to farm and ranch workers as of
15114DG0
January 1, 2016.
We also want your views on how we can work with employers to make lives
better for farm and ranch workers. For example:

How should hours of work for farms and ranches be regulated?


How should vacation leave work on farms and ranches?
How do we make these changes while protecting family farms and ranches?

A town hall session will be held Wednesday, December 2 from 1:00-4:00 pm:
Best Western Plus Okotoks Inn & Suites, 100 Southbank Road
Space is limited, pre-registration is encouraged.

Four Holy Cross Collegiate
students got to experience
Take Our Kids to Work day
on Nov. 4.
Its a day where kids have
the opportunity to go to work
with their parents to understand the importance of staying in school, and what its
like to experience hands on
training to be successful in
the workplaces they were interested in.
Victoria Pedersen took
Take Our Kids to Work day
to a whole new level as she
flew to Ottawa for Remembrance Day to spend the day
with her grandfather George
Haway, who just celebrated
his 20th anniversary of being
a pilot and will be retiring in
February.
She flew with her grandfather for the third time from
Calgary to Ottawa and back,
and was able to soak it all in
about being a pilot as well as
taking in the War Memorial
and Remembrance Day Ceremony in the nations capital.
I was always interested in
his job, more than my parents job, said Pedersen. I
flicked a few switches but
other than that, I couldnt really touch anything. It may be

something I would like to do


later in life.
Pedersen always loved to
travel and enjoys seeing new
places, but learning how to
be a pilot intrigued her because of her grandfather, and
she learned more than she
has ever before about what
they do on a daily basis.
As a pilot, there is three
pages, and its a checklist
that you have to follow in order to get the plane started,
said Pedersen. There are
other security purposes and
requirements you need while
flying to keep everyone safe.
She added that pre-flight
is the longest process before
take-off, and noticed when
people are coming from a
different country that they
cant have any access to any
passengers or crew from the
previous flight because of the
fear of smuggling things into
the country.
Colby Tanton spent the day
at Prolux Lighting, where his
dad works, and learned about
electrical fixture quoting and
stock, and at the same time
learned about lighting design
periodically throughout the
day.
I just decided to go with
him because it looked exciting, said Tanton. I learned
how to work with the soft-

wares they use to price the electrical


quotes and talk to people to get a better
deal.
What made the day more enjoyable
for Tanton is he always looked up to
his dad; that made it fun, knowing he
worked his whole life in the industry,
and also getting to see his architectural designs of one of the rooms he was
building.
Chase Stefanich had the opportunity
to experience screen developing for employer websites at ATB Financial.
Theres a lot you need to know and
no room for error, said Stefanich. I
learned a lot about the coding and how
to make it better.
He added that hed have to keep updated as to whats new in the industry if
he were to pursue this career path.
Reid Jensen went to work construction for the day with his dad, renovating
a house, which included a whole bathroom, an area he noticed that you have
to have patience with to do properly.
Its a good thing to know because
youre going to have to use it later in
life, said Jensen.
It actually helps you improve in stuff
you do in daily life like carpentry. We
did a master bedroom and two bathrooms.
The most important things about renovating his dad taught are the different
techniques for grouting tiles.
You have to be aware of where stuff
is going to be placed, where the pipes
are going to go and if a leak happens,
using the proper techniques so you
dont flood it.
His favourite parts of the experience
were installing the shower and encountering a burst pipe.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Government needs to show recognition to farming operations


To the Editor
Alberta farmers do not question
the value of promoting safe work
environments, nor the education
and means to prevent devastating tragedies. After all, farms are
typically family run businesses.
However, this far reaching omnibus legislation demonstrates the
NDP governments lack of recognition of the special family nature
of small to medium farming opera-

tions.
Effective Jan. 1, 2016, the proposed Bill 6 will affect all farm
and ranch operations within the
province. According to the WCB
employer fact sheet, operators will
be subject to mandatory legislation
that requires coverage for all persons engaging in farm work activities, including paid, unpaid, volunteer, family members, and children.
This will include casual, shared

work, and subcontractors who engage in commercial activities at the


operation. This coverage would be
additional to any private insurance
held by the operator.
Frankly, this unrealistic proposal
fails to recognize rural values, and
the social nature of farm work.
Farms offer a unique environment
as families work where they live,
and at time the lines between work
and play can be blurred.

This proposed legislation


means untimely additional
costs for producers. Since the
provincial election, operators
have shouldered additional
expenses related to personal
taxation and the taxation of
the industries that deliver commodities to market. Bill 6 can
be viewed as an increased human resource expense, and
may lead to farm operators
reconsidering hiring additional help during peak seasons,
such as calving and harvest.

Further consultation is required with industry stakeholders to ensure the NDP government understands the nature
of this industry. Farm business
operators must be given due
opportunity to ensure Bill 6
addresses these unique workplace environments and prevent infringement on the rights
of property owners, while promoting the safety and security
of farm workers.

honoured at Passion Play event

Every year, the Canadian Badlands Passion Play
hosts a Founders Banquet, honouring a different
group of the volunteers who transformed the play
from a dream into a goal, into the reality of the
first performances in 1994.
This years banquet, on Nov. 7, honoured members of the Capital Costs Committee, who organized fundraisers to cover the plays large start-up
costs in the early 1990s. Alice Andersen and Carol
Munchrath of Rosebud, and Harry Christiansen,
formerly of Dalum, were among those honoured.
Joan Herman started the committee after she
came home from a Passion Play Society meeting, she said, and told her husband, Theyre on a
merry-go-round, because they didnt have enough
money. He challenged her to either stop attending
the meetings or do something about it, so she decided to do something. She invited friends to help
her raise the money the Passion Play needed, and
she and her team became the Capital Costs Committee.
Alice Andersen said she wanted to see the Passion Play plans go ahead, so when Joan Herman
asked for help, she didnt say no. Andersen and
her husband ended up volunteering for almost 20
years. It was amazing to see what God was doing
through the Passion Play, she said, with everybody
working together. When Carol Munchrath organized the Passion Plays first celebrity golf tournaments in Rosebud, Andersen made Danish wreath
cakes for the silent auctions. For the tournament
suppers, the committee also sold balloons, which
guests tied to the backs of their chairs and later
popped to discover the prizes theyd won inside.
The committee also fundraised through a strategy called Coffee with a Cause, said committee

members Pat McDougald and Helen Leonhardt.


One person would invite five others over for coffee. Each guest paid $5, then hosted a party for five
more guests. The committee raised tens of thousands of dollars that way, Leonhardt said.
Lance Neudorf, Passion Play Executive Director,
reported that 60,000 people saw the Passion Play
between 2011 and 2015. The play has an incredible impact on peoples lives, he said. One of the
banquet cooks, for example, said his life had hit
rock-bottom.
Since he got connected with Passion Play volunteers, his life has been transformed. Neudorf also
told of a woman who wrote to him after seeing the
show, saying shed struggled with alcoholism for
years, and didnt believe in God. But, since seeing
the Passion Play, she said she knows who Jesus is
and that he loves her.
Neudorf also reported that, in the past few years,
many site improvements have been made, including installation of a sound system and building a
300-seat amphitheatre. In the next few years, he
said, they want to replace the audience benches
and build some shaded sections. Theyre also preparing a new script based on the Gospel of Luke.
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play won two
more ALTO awards from Alberta Tourism this fall,
for Collaborative Tourism and Marketing Excellence.
Until Dec. 31, the Passion Play is hosting its 777
Campaign, offering donors seven ways to give,
with the goal of raising $70,000 in seven weeks.
From July 8 to 24, 2016, the Passion Play will
present nine performances of the new script. Go

Golden Hills School Division has
come to a dust control agreement with
the contractors of the new East Wheatland school site and the adjacent land
owners, Alberta and Ed Neufeld, whose
health issues of her migraines and their
grandsons asthma were affected by the
dust caused by the transportation of fill
near their property.
The Neufelds approached Wheatland
County Council on Nov. 3, expressing
their concerns about the dust and providing councilors with the information
about what was happening their property. However, prior to that meeting
there was the notion that Golden Hills
School Division and the contractor had
an agreement in place to reduce the
dust.
Our involvement happened as a result of that we had thought that the
contractor and Neufelds had worked
out the difficulties, said Bevan Daverne, Golden Hills School Division Superintendent. I think the contractors
believed they had as well. It came to
light that there was some additional
information and not everything that

needed to be done had been done. By


the time this went to County Council, I
think we already had a solution.
The agreement that was settled on
between Delnor Construction, Golden
Hills and the Neufelds was for a water
truck to travel along the road where the
buggies haul dirt to lessen the dust in
the area as, well as working through
normal work day hours.
On the track that goes to the
Neufelds residence, one of the contractors is going to make sure that road
stays watered down so its not kicking
up dust, said Daverne.
Additionally, Delnor will make sure
that snowdrifts are cleared away between the berm and the propane tank
so the Neufelds have full access to it.
As for the Neufelds, they were relieved to hear that the dust will be kept
down.
Theres nothing more we expect
from Golden Hills, said Ed Neufeld.
Theyve taken the time and effort to
resolve it to some degree. You can
never be totally satisfied with anything
until its not there anymore. What we
want to see is the ending of moving the
dirt. There doesnt seem to be an end in
sight right at the moment.

England, before immigrating to
Canada in 1996. In her hometown, she also volunteered
in community theatre, made
theatre costumes, helped
organize the Friends of the
Royal Shakespeare Company, and made costumes for
herself and friends involved
in historical re-enactments.
When I arrived here (in
Canada), I wanted to work in
theatre, which is crazy, she
said with a laugh, because
I left Stratford-on-Avon, surrounded by the best theatre
company in the world, and I
came to an area of the prairies which had really no theatre except Rosebud.
In Alberta, Brown created Shakespeare workshops
for schools, then worked as
stage manager and assistant
director at the Passion Play.
That led to stage managing a
Rosebud Theatre (RT) show,
teaching Shakespeare at
Rosebud School of the Arts
(RSA), and working in the
RT wardrobe department,
eventually becoming Head
of Wardrobe six years ago.
In her multi-faceted role,
Brown first examines a costume designers design idea
and selects possible costumes from those in stock.
Based on the costumes that
can be used, and which need
to be created, the designer
completes the design, and
Brown calculates the cost of
fabric, accessories and time,
determining whether itll fit
the budget. Sometimes we
might have 17 actors, she
said, but we might have 30
characters, so I have to do a
costing for every character.

Brown creates the necessary patterns, and she and


one or two assistants sew
and adapt costumes. For big
shows, she said, It takes
600-700 hours at least per
show.
Brown also teaches costume construction to RSA
technical theatre students,
and teaches basic skills like
replacing buttons and repairing hems to students who
work in wardrobe to fulfill
required production hours.
She also sorts donations,
keeps the costume trailer
organized, coordinates costume rentals, and records the
designs and fabrics used in
each show.
She wont miss the long
hours or lack of space,
Brown said, but, Ill miss
the people. Ill miss the students. Working closely with
students on costumes for
their student productions
Its the best part, she said.
And I like to see the costumes on the actors, she
said. People like (resident
actor) Dave Snider, for example, as soon as he gets the
costume on, he becomes the
character. ... Its very rewarding to see the actors respond
to their costume. It helps
them be creative.
Brown looks forward to
some rest, but she said she
wont sit around watching television. She plans to
work with her husband on
their rental properties and
to spend a longer-than-usual holiday in England next
summer. And she expects to
come back and create one or
two costumes for each Rosebud Theatre show.
Amy McIvor, who studied
costume design at Red Deer
College and has worked
in RTs wardrobe department for several years, will
become Head of Wardrobe
when Brown retires. She already knows everybody and
everything about the job,
Brown said.

SHS presents Mama Ararira


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Strathmore High School student
Rachel Mutesi lived through the horrific events of the Rwandan Genocide,
where her father was shot fatally and
which left her mothers leg wounded.
She found her way to Canada a decade
ago, and her story of how she reunited
with her mother in 2011 is now being
told with the help of the Strathmore
High School Dance Class.
Mutesi will play the role of daughter when she, along with her Strathmore High School Dance Class, tells
the mother and daughter story through
the musical production of Mama Ararira, which is about losing each other
in Rwanda and finding each other in
Canada.
I get to tell people my story, what
Ive gone through, and what my mom
had gone through, said Mutesi. Its
easy to tell people and then you feel

better afterwards because people know


your story. It might change their lives
too.
Through music and dance, the story
of the traumatizing events are lifted and
told different way, she added.
I do love singing and dancing, she
said. Its important to me to tell people
through songs and dancing than telling
them through someone else.
In comparison to Rwanda, the past
four years have provided mother and
daughter with no fear for their lives,
which the duo hopes Canadians realize
and value each day.
Its great having my mom here with
me, she said.
I dont have to worry about anything.
Theres education here, I dont have to
worry about what roads Im going on
here and where Im going.
Mutesis friend, Alueter Demshkwe,
plays the role of the mother, who loses
her daughter in the beginning and goes

MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Six months ago, Jonah Zankl returned to his hometown to engage
the community and encourage sustainability by showing off the University of Calgarys solar-powered car, the
Schulich Delta, at five different Strathmore schools. Expanding the projects
horizons, the 20-year-old was among
six other students who recently travelled to New York City to be a part of
a launch promotion for a new National
Geographic series.
The six-day trip allowed the team,
which back in Calgary consists of over
50 students, to drive their invention
all over Manhattan while also taking
the opportunity to stop at major landmarks, such as Central Park, Times
Square, and the American Museum of
Natural History. Serving as a rolling
billboard, the vehicle often stopped
traffic, turned heads, and received
much positive feedback during their
time from Oct. 26 to 31.
Our goal is not necessarily to build
something market-ready, nor do we
have the resources to do that, but I
think as a team our goals are educational awareness, getting engineering
out into the schools, and really showing whats possible with some of these
technologies, Business Manager and
Serving
Strathmore,

Project Co-Chair Zankl said,


a third-year U of C student
who is doing a combined
degree in Applied Math and
Economics.
When I was going to
school at SHS, I was part of
SAY and a bunch of groups
to get involved in the community and getting people
involved in something bigger than school. So when I
saw this project, I thought
it was a really interesting
way to take education out
to the schools in Alberta. I
think the opportunity to be
involved in something large
scale that has some meaningful impact is really exciting.
The Schulich Delta is the
fourth attempt by the University of Calgary Solar Car
Team and took a year to design and a year to build, with
a hefty pricetag of $250,000
in materials attached.
With no emissions and no
gas tank, the vehicle can travel 50 km an hour for as long
as there is sunlight. Without
direct sunlight, Zankl said
the car can travel 50 km an
hour for six to eight hours.
It was also able to keep up
with highway traffic at 110
km an hour.
The likelihood of having
solar cars out on the road

isnt high, but maybe we will


start to see solar being integrated as part of a vehicle
rather than as its main operational aspect, he said.
Its an exciting prospect
for the future and I think
it just gathers a lot of traction and excitement that
wouldnt necessarily come
from having solar panels on
your house. When you see
them on a car, its something
completely different from
what people expect.
The team has been working on the car since 2004 in
response to the North American solar car challenge. Yet
the project hasnt been without its challenges. Problem
still arise in balancing the
amount of solar energy that
can be captured, storing the
energy in standard batteries
which add weight and reduce overall efficiency, and
creating a lighter and more
aerodynamic design.
The university students,
from all different studies,
have already begun working
on the next vehicle. As for
the Schulich Delta, it will be
participating in outreaches
around the province in the
next year, with a race in July
for the American Solar Challenge that spans from Pennsylvania to South Dakota.
The
University
of Calgary Solar
Car Team took
their solar-energy
powered vehicle,
the Schulich Delta, to New York
recently to be a
part of a launch
promotion
for
a new National
Geographic series.

from a major city in South East Asia, small town in the midwest U.S.A.
and many other world communities including Calgary.
To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet
humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international
understanding through Lions clubs.
Mission Statement Lions Clubs International www.lionsclubs.org
We Serve thats the whole Lions motto. A simple concept
started many years ago; Help where its needed. Long before it
became a catchphrase, Lions were paying it forward. No politics,
non sectarian - just Lions members, unpaid volunteers - being active
in everything from highway cleanups to building projects to youth
parks to supporting global initiatives for sight and eye disease and
it doesnt stop there. People from a community working in their
community to support their community and having fun while theyre
doing it!
Theres no secrets about Lions theyre here to help. Your
community is what the Strathmore Lions are all about and it works
both ways. With your support the Lions support you.
Be involved talk to the Lions be a Lion!

music and lots of goodies. Fireworks will also take place this
evening at approximately 8 pm.
Again this year, admission and parking is Free, however
we do encourage people to make a donation as you come or
leave the Christmas Park, since we depend on donations to
keep admission free for all and to help fund new events and
the park each year.
And, please join me in thanking all the volunteers who
come out in all kinds of weather to put up, operate, and
take down the Christmas park. Every year our volunteers
contribute thousands of hours throughout the year, helping to
make it possible for every person and every family to come
out and enjoy our park.
Most of all we love welcoming visitors, and hope to see
your face amoung them at the 2015 Light Up the Night and
other fun events we have planned.

Strathmore & District Agriculture Society -Strathmore Celebration of Lights


The Strathmore Celebration of Lights Committee is a non-profit group that operates under the umbrella of the Strathmore

Our Volunteers
Friends and Visitors fo the Celebration of Lights
Christmas Park frequently comment that it must take an
awful lot of work to set up all the lights and displays and
many other things that the see.
They are quite right. But, most amazingly, most of
this work and building of the new displays are done by
volunteers who come out to help us each year often in
the cold and the dark to get the Christmas Park ready,
to operate it and to take it down once it closes for the
season.
It all starts and is managed by a volunteers board of
directors, who in turn make arrangements to bring in
volunteers to help in many different ways from preparing
for opening night to running the park for the season.
Each year these volunteers put in 100s of hours and
more.
We always welcome anyone interested in
volunteering in building new displays, new ideas, set up
and take down each year. We also welcome non-profit
groups that would like to come out and raise funds.
To volunteer as an individual or group or to enquire
about fund-raising opportunities please email

Strathmore RCMP seize another


grow operation
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

For the second time this month, Strathmore RCMP, together
with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit Green
Team and the RCMP Police Dog Service, obtained a search
warrant and seized an active Marijuana grow operation this
time located in Strathmore.
Earlier in November, on Nov. 2, RCMP seized 1,140 plants
at a rural property near Langdon worth just over $1.4 million. Then on Nov. 17 at 5:10 p.m., the Strathmore Crime Reduction Unit, the Strathmore General Investigation Section
(GIS), and the Strathmore RCMP busted a three-stage marijuana grow operation on a property that contained multiple
adults and four local youths.
We found plants in three different stages, so very small
plants, medium sized plants and then plants ready to bud,
said Strathmore RCMP Cst. Shannon White, who was also
involved in the seizure of the operation near Langdon. Over

16 years Ive seen smaller and Ive seen bigger operations.


Certainly the one near Langdon was much larger scale and
this was a town one. For Strathmore, this was significant.
Authorities managed to seize 110 plants from the property
that, while no information about the condition of the structure is available, is said to most likely have suffered moisture
damage.
A 27-year-old male, the propertys representative, has been
charged with the production of Marijuana, possession of
Marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of
proceeds of crime contrary to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the Criminal Code.
To Whites knowledge these two operations were the only
two seizures this year, and she credited the confiscation to
the coorporation among members.
The youths, who are in their late teens, are not being
charged, nor are the other adults present at the property
during the seizure. The accused is scheduled to appear in
court in Strathmore on Dec. 15.

Dancers breathe life into Tales of the Brothers Grimm


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Three Strathmore talents are taking to the stage this weekend in the
Alberta Dance Theatre for Young Peoples production of Tales of the Brothers Grimm. While the dance company
never fails to impress, having previously featured Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, and
James and the Giant Peach, the production is squeezing in a long list of
beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales
all in time for celebrating 35 years of
dance creation in Calgary.
Neve Raycroft, Saige Aleman, and
Lane Habing, all from Strathmore, will
join 47 aspiring dancers in bringing
stories such as Snow White, Cinderella,
The Frog Prince, and Rapunzel to the

audience.
What makes the Alberta Dance Theatre different from other groups, is that
the dancers themselves are involved in
the creative process and we see so
much growth with their dancing ability, their personalities, and maturity,
said Heather Mitchell, general manager for Alberta Dance Theatre (ADT).
Its not just choreographers choreographing numbers for them. The
dancers in each number do get the
opportunity to express themselves
somewhere within the dance piece. Its
like anything, football or hockey; its a
team, theyre a unit.
In her sixth year with the theatre,
Neve Raycroft is now the oldest dancer among her group at age 13. As the
theatre takes on dancers aged seven to
17, the dedicated full-time Strathmore

Farm Safety

dancer has noticed slight changes


in her responsibilities among other dancers in comparison to previous years.
The older dancers tend to get
picked to transition the dances
more, so thats a little bit different,
she said. Instead of having the
age groups, were doing casting so
theres more of an age difference.
But its just a fun way to express
yourself and perform.
As a full-time dancer Raycroft
dances nearly every day of the
week. Along for the ride is her
mother Marnie, who until recently manned the role of Chairperson
of the Guild on the ADT board. With
her decision to step down, she is now
left in the dark about the production
as much as the audience.
This is when you really see a lot
of growth, then theyre 13 years old
and you see them blossom into the
dancer that theyre going to be, said
Marnie Raycroft.
This year is the first year that I
havent seen a lot. Ive taken a step

back from the board, so typically in


dance we dont get to see
a lot until they perform,
unless youre directly
involved. So this is a really exciting year for

me because I havent
seen anything.
Tales of the Brothers
Grimm will take to the stage
at the University of Calgary
Theatre on Nov. 27 at 7
p.m., Nov. 28 at 1 p.m. and
4 p.m. and Nov. 29 at 1 p.m.
Advance tickets are $20 before Nov. 27 and can be purchased at the University of Calgary Campus ticket office, calling
403-220-7202, or online at ucalgary.ca/tickets.
Neve Raycroft from Strathmore is joining 49
other dancers in the Alberta Dance Theatre
for Young Peoples production of Tales of the
Brothers Grimm starting on Nov. 27.

Badgers end year with player awards


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The Strathmore Community Football Association
wrapped up their season with the players banquet
on Friday night, providing a chance for the teams to
gather and celebrate their accomplishments.
The Strathmore Badgers peewee team had a lot of
players they could turn to all season long with their
42-man roster, which consisted of many new players.
Adam Spiedel, who earned Rookie of the Year, was
one of those individuals new to the league.
It felt good, said the first-year linebacker and
safety. If I ever play professional football, thats the
award I want to win just because its your rising star.
In two or three years youre going to be one of the
best in the league. Thats what I figured out it meant.
Its good to have this award.
The most important thing he learned throughout
the season was working hard to keep up with the
pace of the game.
Peewee head coach Clinton Bean said Spiedel
would ask a lot of questions and wasnt afraid to put
himself in any position. By the end of the season, he
added, he wasnt really worried about it because he
was doing his job all the time.
When we moved him around, if someone got

hurt, he was the first guy we grabbed him to put in


that situation in that spot, said Bean.
Second-year bantam Makel Holloway took home
the Defensive Lineman of the Year award and was
honoured to be recognized by his team. He said he
improved greatly in his position this season.
I feel like I improved a lot, said Holloway. Some
of the players made me a whole lot better than I was
and turned out to be one of the best on the team.
Holloways defensive coordinator coach David
Kemps found that Holloways game had strong leadership qualities.
He was a cornerstone and leader at that position,
said Kemps.
He had good poise during tough parts of the
game. He stepped up and made big plays when
we needed it. His skill improved every game, every
practice.
Kemps added that Holloway had the effect of making players better around him through his play.
Senior Badgers quarterback Riley Bahan took
home team MVP and credits the experience with his
teammates for the award.
Im honoured, said Bahan.
Ill remember it as a good year, a great experience
with all my teammates. I felt good knowing you can
be a leader and show support for them.

Head coach Brad Middlemiss said it was a difficult decision to choose his MVP, but the choice to
go with Bahan was because of him being a multidimensional player.
Hes such a quick learner, said Middlemiss.
He learned and picked up the position. When we
were in a jam, wed put him in other positions on the
field. Hes the first guy to make the tackle and it was
just unbelievable. Hes a very good, gifted athlete.
The other MVPs were Brayden Langley in peewee,
and for the second year in row Reid Jensen took it
home in bantam.
In the peewee category the other award winners
were: Offensive Lineman: Jack Warrack; Defensive
Lineman: Dominic Atkinson; Defensive Back: Dawson Jensen; Offensive Back: Cooper Nelson; Most
Improved: Cyrus Shaw.
The rest of the bantam award winners included:
Rookie of the Year: Luke Henry; Defensive Back: Riley Southern; Offensive Back: Noah Dejardins; Offensive Lineman: Zach Palardy; Most Improved: Austin Smith.
Seniors winners: Rookie of the Year: Kila Price; Offensive Lineman: Josh Gigantelli; Defensive Lineman:
Josh Middlemiss; Offensive back: Steven Soers; Defensive back: Marshall Biskup; Most Improved: Jordan Sangster.

The Strathmore Spartans senior girls volleyball team

most of their games close on Nov. 20 and 21.

Spartans earn provincial berth


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The Strathmore Spartans senior boys volleyball team
went into zones ranked fourth, but came out of the tournament as gold medalists.
The Spartans knocked off the number one-ranked Cochrane squad in an epic three set match to book themselves into provincials Nov. 26-28.
Cochrane is a very talented team, said Spartans head
coach Cole Hintz. They had a very big, strong, physical
left side. It was a good opportunity for us to see that level
we had to shoot for and try to surpass at the end of tournament if we wanted to come out on top.
Despite losing the first set 25-21, Hintz said the guys
were able to stay focused and understand if they continued
to work hard, eventually some balls would go their way.
I wasnt really nervous after that first set, said Hintz. I
was excited for the guys and just the opportunity that they
had to go out and continue and get better.
He added the most dynamic aspect of the teams overall
game was their ability to have their setters establish the

middle where they could generate their offence.


Senior girls head coach Randy Moncks thought his players played hard as zone hosts and kept their matches
close, but unfortunately the yearlong inconsistency crept
into their games, which led to being left out of the playoff
rounds.
Consistency has plagued us all year long, said Moncks.
We can do one or two and then well give away two, three,
four points. You got to be on your game to continue to put
pressure on those good teams all the time and not let up
like we do.
Overall, we played some of our better volleyball and
looked good. We were moving well and transitioning. People were all of sudden doing things wed worked on in
practice and not panicking and not all time, we had
to do that all the time but we just had too many unforced
errors.
Moncks did emphasize that the girls were having fun
and that theyre close to getting over the hump to win
matches, but most of them need more playing experience,
which they can get by going to camps and getting more
time with the ball.

After winning the first two
rounds, Scott Schiffner took on 30
riders and climbed his way to the
Top 5, ending the bull-riding season at the Pro Bull Rodeo Finals in
Saskatoon last weekend on a high
note.
Placing in the Top 5 is an impressive feat for the Strathmore local,
who suffered from lingering effects
of a concussion from the week before, which he said prevented him
from performing to his full potential
It went alright, said Schiffner. I
was little off my game for sure from
Edmonton, still trying recover a little
bit from my concussion. I wouldve
liked another week of rest to get
ready. I stayed on my first two bulls
in the first two rounds and I ended
up getting bucked off the bull of
the year in the short round. I sure
wouldve liked to stay on my last
one and ended the season on a real
good note.
He added that he did pass concussion protocols before the event,
and knowing he can overcome an
injury and compete at a high level
at his age was encouraging.
The thing is you got to put your
hand on the rope knowing youre
healthy, he said.
If you dont, you might as well
not show up because theres all of
the other guys there that can beat
you on any given day. Its a mental
game for sure and one of things to
deal with.
Overall, Schiffner expected more
out of himself this season, but now
is going to take a few months off
and come back refreshed in the
spring.

Braves and Warriors continue to find offence


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The local peewee double-A team
started off the weekend with a tight
3-2 win over the Central AB Selects
on Nov. 21 - but considering a slow
start, the team was able to pick up
their game and found a way to score
goals at key times.
Braves head coach Carl Knudesen
has preached to his team that he
wants a consistent full 60-minute effort the last few weeks and the effort
showed in the two road wins, which
included a 7-3 hammering of Red
Deer.
It was a slow start, said Knudsen.
We kind of just buckled down and
were able to squeak out the win. The
second and third were definitely better periods.

Basically, I was preaching hard


work and out-competing the other
guys, out-battling them for pucks all
over the ice. Thats when were having most of our success.
He added it would be nice to increase leads over teams, but he cares
more about the points the team is
picking up right now.
Tegan Skehar, Adam Kirkpatrick
and Trey Gillies scored one each in
the win.
On Nov. 22, the Braves went out to
an early 2-0 lead and were able to
hang on for a 7-3 win over Red Deer.
In the third period we got a few
goals that gave us a sizeable lead and
took care of things in our own end,
said Knudsen.
Tristan Zandee led the way with
three goals, while Gillis, Joel Romano, Tate Yule and Zach Nicholls

Pass the Salt

The CFR Bisons split


a pair of home games
this past weekend at
the Strathmore Family Centre, including
a 2-1 setback to the
SSAC Athletics on
Nov. 22. However, the
Bisons did earn a 8-2
victory the night before
against the St. Albert
Raiders.

Bisons show strong play back at home


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The CFR Bisons faced off
against their northern counterparts, the SSAC Athletics, for the
second time in as many weekends, working their tails off in
hopes of getting redemption on
their last game; but thanks to
strong goaltending by SSACs
Philip Couture who saved 32 of
33 shots, the Bisons lost 2-1 on
Nov. 22.
First-year forward Liam Izyk
was the only Bison player to
score on Couture; he said the
boys came in with a different
focus after losing to them the
week before.
We came out here and had a
good focus of what we wanted
to bring to them to prove, said
Izyk. I think we have to bear
down on our chances more and
make sure were in strong positions and when we get those
chances we can just put them
in the net. We had enough to
come out on top today, but we
just missed the net too many
times and didnt capitalize.
Izyk and his line-mates tried

to build up momentum copying


what the first line was doing on
the shift prior, which paid off.
Our first line had a strong
shift and they were banging
away and we just came out
there and finished the job, he
said.
Head coach Sandy Henry
thought the most dominant
part about the teams game was
the offensive zone time, but
he credits SSACs goalie for a
strong effort, and their teams
strong defensive play.
I think their defensive zone
scheme is to really collapse in
the middle and we had a little
trouble penetrating for that
great opportunity, said Henry.
We maybe were guilty of not
getting enough pucks to the net
and try to drive in there. I think
this team last weekend handled
us a little bit. This weekend I
thought we handled them without the results.
Henry thought the chances
were limited because their opponents were plugging the
middle up well and were forced
to come off the rush more and
shooting at more of an angle.

(Their goalie) was seeing


pretty good, he said. We did
get a few big-time chances and
we hit him with them or missed
the net.
Having won 8-2 the previous
night at home against St. Albert,
Henry thought the level of opportunity was way bigger compared to the ones SSAC were
giving them.
We had the same amount of
control yesterday but we got
some free looks at the goalie
and today you dont get a free
look, said Henry. Theres always someone there, theres a
little tug, youre trying to shoot
through guys. It was just a different level of game we had to
play today.
Gary Haden led the way with
four goals while Jackson Salt
had two. Cooper Krauss and
Zach Cox rounded out the offence in the win versus the
Raiders.
The Bisons will continue the
home stand this weekend, beginning Friday night when they
host the Calgary Buffaloes at 8
p.m. before playing the Calgary
Flames on Nov. 29 at 2 p.m.

GIVING THANKS
Over the years I have lived
in a few locations: Calgary,
Three Hills, Trochu, Vancouver, Burnaby, Kincaid and
now Strathmore. Each location has its challenges. Each
location has its virtues.
One thing I have come to
appreciate in Strathmore is
Greys Park. I drive past it
almost every day and in good
weather find myself cycling
down the road or walking
along the path. It always
gives me great pleasure to
pass the park.
In the Spring the birds heading north stop for a rest. Some
stay, build nests, lay eggs
and raise their chicks. Now
we are well into summer. The
slough is full of bird families
that dont seem stressed by
the increase in activity around
them as more Strathmore
residents enjoy the area.
This autumn has been especially exciting! The flocks of
birds gathering as they head
south seem bigger - more
numerous - larger flocks of

geese and swans and ducks


and gulls! It really is a thrill
for a mostly city gal to see
the numbers of birds right in
town.
I give thanks for the foresight
of those folks who donated
the land and made it a park. I
give thanks!
Ephesians 5:19-20 tells us that
we should go through life with
a song of praise on our lips,
giving thanks to God at all
times in every circumstance.
This is not always easy, but as
I pass the park it certainly is,
for in the beauty of creation,
the beauty of this park and
its inhabitants, we see Gods
majesty.
Giving thanks when it is easy
helps us to give thanks in
every circumstance. Giving
thanks makes you a joyful
person to be around. And
dont we all give thanks for
being around joy filled folks.
Giving thanks - a habit to
cultivate.

The Strathmore Figure Skating Club has


seen an increase in the
number of skaters this
year and has made
great strides in terms
of improvement so far
this season.

Strathmore Figure Skating


breaking ice to success
JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Its only been two months into the
season, but the Strathmore Figure
Skating Club has already experienced
some pleasant surprises.
With impressive growth among participating skaters, coaches also noticed
a change in their ability to learn techniques from experienced skaters.
Weve grown the club to roughly 90
members now, said coach Rhett Myers. The quality of skating is much
better. The kids are improving on a
daily basis and when the older kids
start improving faster, the younger
ones follow.
Myers said the older skaters have not
only become role models, but mentors

as well and give the younger skaters


a look at great technique which gives
them the encouragement needed to try
something new, like spinning.
He hopes the hard work they put
in will pay off by the end of the year,
and that they will be meeting the clubs
goals that were set right from the start.
We have a Fire on Ice show that we
do every year and for each individual skater to achieve their own goals
and show what improvements theyve
done, said Myers. Weve had some
success. Rylee Wilson is competing this
weekend to try and qualify for Alberta
Winter Games in her region and we
hope she has good success there.
He hopes that with the older girls
competing at a higher level of figure
skating and doing well, that the com-

munity will catch on and result in an


influx of audience members.
In her sixth year with the club, Jayden
Wilson, who competed in the Calgary
Regional Open last weekend with her
interpretive Big Girls Dont Cry, was
looking forward to the challenge of
dancing to that genre of music.
Ive never done one to this type of
music before, she said. Its kind of
fun, something different.
She gave praise to the younger skaters for working really hard and has
seen improvements every time shes on
the ice with them.
Just their skills in general, said Wilson. Theyre getting way faster and
stronger. They can jump a lot better
now.
Wilson is currently a senior bronze

level and is working towards a gold


level, which she will go after in December.
The CanSkate program is getting
stronger and moving along rather
quickly as the kids are developing on
their blades and moving on up to the
higher levels.
Its working very well, said Myers.
Obviously we got the little ones moving along and older ones are gaining
more skills in the CanSkate area. Some
of them are going to move up into our
junior program and move up to our senior program here.
CanSkate is open to ages four all the
way up to adults, and you can register
throughout winter.

Kings riding
high into
home stand
JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Blake Bishop made the last shot
count in Red Deer on Saturday night,
propelling the Wheatland Kings to a
9-8 thrilling come-from-behind overtime win over the Vipers.
It was one of craziest game Ive
ever seen in my life, said head coach
Emilio Fouco.
Its definitely one for the memory
bank and the coaching book. (It was)
a tremendous second period to come
back and put ourselves in the position to have an opportunity to win the
game; falling apart in the first part of
the third period, then the miracle come
back, including the overtime goal.
However, Fuoco is still looking for
those complete 60 minute efforts to
keep the games easier and more in
control and said the Red Deer game
was one where there was dominance
in segments throughout the contest.
We played really well in spurts, but
it wasnt consistent enough, said Fouco. When we were down four goals to
Red Deer both times, it was just let everyone in the game and see whos hot.
There was some energy derived from
the young players who were doing
well and theyre showing their energy
and heart, and all of a sudden it was I
think we can do this guys.
Jacen Bracko led the way with the
hat trick; Zach Meadows and Tyler
Rivest each had two, while Brendan
Moore had one to round out the scoring.
Unfortunately, that same level of heroics had not been available the previous night in Medicine Hat, when
the Kings took a tough 5-4 loss to the
Cubs.
We kept picking at their lead and
ran out of time, said Fuoco. Our
first period was not very good. It was
uphill all the way but we continued
to hammer away. I think we scored
with about three seconds, left but
the whistle clearly went ahead of the
puck squeezing in. It was one of those
games where we didnt do ourselves
any favours in the first period, but we
also didnt get any breaks.
Bracko notched two goals, while
Bishop and Brooker Pretty Youngman
scored in the loss.
The Kings will begin a four-game
home stand on Nov. 28 when they host
the Stettler Lightning at 8 p.m.

It is with deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of our


beloved Garry. He passed away
peacefully at the Peter Lougheed
Center in Calgary on Nov. 21, 2015. Garry lived
his entire life in the Chancellor, AB area. After high
school, Garry attended Olds Agricultural School
where he met the love of his life, Margaret. Garry
spent his life farming and, in later years, doing
woodworking and many forms of construction.
Garry was always willing to offer a helping hand
to anyone who needed it. He was also generous
to a fault. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life. Garry will be greatly
missed by his wife of 50 years, Margaret; daughter
Kim (Truman) and their children Meryn and Thaya;
son Roger (Sheri); daughter Kari; granddaughter
Lacey (Andy) and their children Paige and Addison; grandsons Dalton and Tavish; granddaughter
Kendall (Paul) and their children Shellby and Aurora; and granddaughter Kyra. He is also survived
by his brother Allan (Judy); sisters May and Kay;
and many nieces and nephews. The family would
like to thank all of the staff on unit 38 at the Peter
Lougheed Center for the care and compassion he
received. A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 27, 2015 at Our Saviours Lutheran
Church (Hussar) at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers,
donations may be made directly to Camp Kuriakos
(Site 8, Box 18, RR1, Sylvan Lake, AB, T4S 1X6),
Samaritans Purse (20 Hopewell Way NE, Calgary,
Alberta, T3J 5H5), or to your local food bank. To

Margaret Jean
(nee Bradley)

May 11, 1943 Nov 19, 2015


It is with profound sadness that
the family announces the passing of their mother,
grandmother and sister, Jean Singleton at the
General Hospital in Strathmore, Alberta on Thursday, November 19, 2015. Jean was born in Sudbury, Ontario and raised in Arnstein, Ontario. Jean
married her teenage sweetheart and the love of
her life, Lyal Singleton, on July 28, 1962. Together,
they raised their son, Joe and daughter, Kathy. After raising her family to teenagers in Ontario, the
family moved west to Alberta. After a brief stay
in Calgary, Jean and Lyal moved to Strathmore in
1988. Jean enjoyed the company of family and
friends and always had a house full. Jeans passion was traveling, especially east to visit family in
Ontario. Throughout her life Jean took many different jobs from receptionist to construction worker, whatever it took to help provide for her family.
Jean enjoyed fishing, quadding and long trips in
their motor home with Lyal and their canine companion, Missy. Jean treasured her family time
and she and Lyal visited many wonderful places
and attended several family reunions. She provided strong support to her children and then to her
wonderful grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
They will all miss her dearly. Jean is survived by
her son, Joe (Marilyn) and their children Troy, Jennifer (Alex) and their children Brandon, Kyla, Angelle, Emily, Logan and Chase; and daughter Kathy
(Al). Jean will be greatly missed by her sisters,
Marylou (Tony), Grace (Jim) and brothers, Richard
(Gloria), Eddie (Eila), Roy (Bertha), Harvey (Linda)
and Jack (Bonnie). Jean will also be missed by
a host of extended family and friends. We have
all been blessed for having had Jean in our lives.
Jean was predeceased by her husband Lyal, sisters, Fern (Leslie), Joy (Andrew), Gloria (Harold),
Christina (Jack) and brothers Gerald (Audrey),
Clayton (Elsie) and Paul (Enid). Relatives and
