A new coordinator position,
funded by a grant from the pro-
vincial government, is aimed to
reduce the number of repeat
family violence incidents.
The $223,000 pilot project,
led by the Strathmore Family
Violence Response Team, was
announced June 29 in Strath-
more.
The coordinator will work
with the Strathmore RCMP,
Wheatland Shelter, Strathmore
Regional Victim Services and
project advisory organizations
to provide services to families
at risk of violence.
“This is a community that
takes family violence seriously
and they’ve done tremendous
work already developing in-
formal partnerships,” said Min-
ister of Justice and Attorney
General Alison Redford. “This
announcement will fund a co-
ordinator position, which will
allow them to react more ef-
fectively and faster to the situa-
tions that they are already deal-
ing with.
“It’s interesting to hear the
amount of work, the amount
of commitment, that volunteers
have put into this whole net-
work of support services over
the past 20 years. So as a pro-
vincial government, it’s nice for
us to come in and augment that
work, as opposed to imposing
a system.”
The new position will also
work with victims to help
with specifc needs such as
safe housing and counseling,
as well as providing support
through criminal proceedings
for victims and families.
Strathmore RCMP Staff Sgt.
Larry Marzinzik hopes that the
coordinator will be able to as-
sist all agencies involved, while
helping the families in need.

Answers to all questions will appear on the website on the Funeral FAQ Page.
Q: Who is the funeral service for?
Contrary to popular belief, the funeral is not for the deceased but
rather in honour of the deceased. The funeral is truly for the
bereaved that are left behind to fnd a new identity without the
deceased in their life. It encourages the family, in an organized way,
to express their feelings of loss, helplessness, and loneliness while
allowing the community to show it’s support and share the sorrow
that the family is experiencing. Many people today wish to spare
their family the hassle and expense of a funeral and simply ask that
one not be held for them. What is often overlooked is what the
needs of their family will be once the death occurs. By removing
the ability to have a funeral, the bereaved may be left with no
acknowledgement of this major change in their life. It is important
that a very open discussion is held with your family to discuss
what they will need when planning your funeral arrangement.

Become a Better Investor
By Understanding Risk
To be a successful investor, you need
patience, discipline and a long-term vision of
what you want to achieve. But you also need
the ability to manage risk. To truly manage
risk, you frst need to understand it.
First, you need to know your own risk
tolerance. How much risk are you willing
to incur in exchange for potentially higher
returns?
You’ll also need to understand your risk
capacity - how much risk you can actually
handle, from a fnancial perspective.
Finally, you should know your required
risk - the amount of risk you must accept to
achieve the returns necessary to reach your
goals.
Ultimately, you must use your risk tolerance,
risk capacity and required risk as factors in
a comprehensive investment strategy. By
creating this strategy, and sticking with it
over time, you’ll be able to make appropriate
investment decisions throughout your life.

Red and white could be
seen all over Kinsmen Park
as residents took part in
the 143rd Canada Day cel-
ebrations. The day started
off with a pancake break-
fast hosted by the fre de-
partment and featured vari-
ous activities such as canoe
races, cake decorating and
free concerts. The Town was
fortunate to use the Calgary
Stampede stage, at no cost,
so bands and magicians
could perform with no fear
of the weather. The sun was
shining, making it a nearly
perfect day to celebrate our
heritage.
“This was the biggest turn-
out we’ve ever had, I think,”
said Dwight Stanford, Town
of Strathmore Chief Admin-
istrative Offcer. Cakes were
decorated with a three-min-
ute deadline, and then auc-
tioned off, with 100 per cent
of the money raised going to
the Wheatland food bank.
The canoe races didn’t see
anyone go under water until
the seventh race when Team
Minto fipped frst, and then
members of the Strathmore
Rural Fire Department went
under. Can Am Water Wig-
glers won frst in the races,
followed by the Dream Team
in second and Sing for Jesus
in third.
For the twelfth year Night-
ingale Karaoke took place in
the gazebo and was hosted
by Gisele and Byron. Gisele
went around town fnding
people to donate prizes for
their contest, and 10 lucky
winners walked away with
goodies. Mullen’s magic
and variety show had the
kids giggling. For the older
crowd, Katie Rox, Hysteria
and Pulse were the three
main musical entertain-
ers. Due to some timing is-
sues Ken Stobbe didn’t get
a chance to perform, but he
still looked happy to be a
part of the festivities.
The night ended with fre-
works lighting up the sky,
and this year they were set
off near the fre hall, so peo-
ple didn’t have to travel to
the Agricultural grounds.

The United Way
Strathmore is back, and
on June 30 they present-
ed cheques to local or-
ganizations in need. The
new board was formed
in October of 2009, and
their frst order of busi-
ness was to distribute
the funds, which had
been sitting from the
former board. The 2010
funding focus was ‘as-
sisting families in need
to live healthy and well
in Strathmore’ and was
where the guidelines
came from.
The group had six
agencies apply with a to-
tal request of $108,000.
They were able to help
fve of the groups, but
only for a split amount
of $37,000.
“I feel like because it
was a fairly quick turn
around, not everyone
knew about us, and
some agencies didn’t
know to apply,” said Ce-
cilia Moore, with United
Way Strathmore.
“We need to raise
awareness in our com-
munity, all money raised
in our community stays
in our community.”
United Way Strath-
more is currently look-
ing for volunteers to
help out, and the com-
mitment can be as little
or as much as the per-
son wants to contrib-
ute. To fnd out more
information about how
you can help, contact
the Wheatland Family
and Community Support
Services, 403- 934-5335.

Residents who went to the open house
on July 5 were hoping for an open forum,
where they could sit, ask their questions,
and fnally get some answers. Instead it was
more of an information session, with the
mayor, other members of council and the
administration offces there to help answer
questions. Many people came for both the
dog park and RV parking topics, such as
Josh and Shannon Winters.
“I’m here for both, I don’t want the dog
park behind my house where it was origi-
nally proposed. I think they should abolish
the RV thing all together,” said Josh. They
don’t want to deal with the traffc issues
and dog poop, and they are concerned
about the safety of their children.
Gary Abel, a Bylaw Offcer, doesn’t have
an opinion about either, but came more for
the RV Bylaw because it directly affects him.
He has been here since April and has just
been doing his job by enforcing the bylaw.
David Dzuba and Deb Hodl were at the
open house to discuss the dog park. Both
want to see the dog park created, but one
of their combined issues is they do not
want to have to drive to walk their dogs,
and want to see some of the green space
around Strathmore put to better use.
For both items being discussed at the
open house, there seemed to be a mix of
opinions, and it will be interesting to see
how things turnout.

In 2003 the Lions Club took over what
is now known as the Canadian Lions
Eyeglass Recycling Centre, CLERC. Used
eyeglasses are collected in various places
throughout the country.
Art Eeles, a member of the Strathmore
Lions, gathers eyeglasses which are do-
nated to the Lions Club and brings them
into Calgary to Bernie Gribben, chair of
the program, when he is making a trip
into the city.
“People drop them off there, some
drop them off at my place,” said Eeles. “I
must have taken in a half a dozen bags,
since then I’ve taken in another few bags
full within the last year.”
“We have Lions in Strathmore who col-
lect glasses for us, and the Strathmore
Lions club has always been very support-
ive,” said Gribben.
Gribben, from Calgary, has been a
member since 1996 and is the chair of
the program. CLERC began as a partner-
ship with Operation Eyesight Universal,
the Lions and the Alberta government;
the Calgary Correctional Centre. Opera-
tion Eyesight is an organization which
has been distributing glasses through out
the World for close to 40 years.
The organization approached Gribben
in 2003 saying they would like to change
their focus and wanting to know if the
Lions would take over.
“I said ‘ I have no idea but I can bring
it to our organization’ and the Lions ac-
cepted the proposal on a number of con-
ditions,” said Gribben.
One of the conditions was it must be a
Canadian program and not just a Calgary
one, and the second was Gribben was to
look after it. “I continue after all these
years to oversee the program.”
The program collects glasses from
coast to coast in Canada and then they
are shipped to Calgary. They receive ap-
proximately 30,000 pair of glasses each
month. Upon arrival in Calgary, Gribben
takes the eyeglasses to the Calgary Cor-
rectional Centre at Spy Hill. The offend-
ers there, sort, sanitize, hand dry, inspect,
repair where necessary and then read for
prescription on one of four lensometer’s.
Once the prescription has been estab-
lished, the prescription is attached to a
Ziploc bag and the individual glasses go
inside; then the glasses are packaged into
boxes of 350, according to type. Since
1996, inmates have been volunteering
their time to sanitize, inspect and repair
them.
Only the Calgary Correctional Centre
has a program where the inmates work
on the donated glasses, and it helps them
learn practical skills, said Davio.
“We then ship those glasses to mis-
sion groups in Canada, and they are re-
sponsible for taking them overseas and
distributing them to needy people,” said
Gribben.
They plan to host an open house for all
of the people who have helped over the
years with CLERC. There were two dates
set, either October 13 or the 20. The rea-
son for this is because the Premier and
the Justice Minister have been invited,
and they are trying to coordinate a date
which suits both. The premier is a Lion’s
member and that’s one reason why he
was invited. Rick Forti from the Calgary
Correctional Centre, works closely with
Gribben and CLERC, and both men will
be heading to Mexico with about 40 other
members in November to help distribute
the glasses.
CLERC have distributed over two mil-
lion pair of eyeglasses and are hoping in
September they will ship out their three
millionth pair. “We will specially mark
that pair like we did for our one millionth
and two millionth pairs,” said Gribben.
“It’s quite a detailed program and we are
proud to say we have helped close to
three million people.”
The donation boxes are set up in
schools, libraries, pharmacies anywhere
the club thinks they will be able to re-
ceive donations. In Strathmore the boxes
are in the drug marts, the hospital and
the optometrist, among other places.

Septic Pros Buyers Group
from Calgary started an ongo-
ing research project at the Global
Training Centre last month. On
June 14, partners Troy Feick and
Dave Perehudoff showed off the
duke-o-bore, which Perehudoff
had created and gave a demon-
stration of how they expect it to
help them in researching sewage
tanks. Some of it has been done
before, but hasn’t had proper test-
ing. What Perehudoff has created
is basically a device which uses
a Dutch auguer to auguer the
ground. After drilling a hole in
the ground, a vented pipe goes in
through that hole, and bentonite
chips go on the bottom to stop
water from coming in. Then a
layer of sand goes through where
the vents are on the pipe, which
allows fuid to go through it. On
top of the sand is more benton-
ite, which stops any ground wa-
ter leaking into the chamber and
allows the group to test what’s
going through the chambers and
down below.
“With the new Standard Oper-
ating Procedure, a lot of people
used to working in the conven-
tional feld are confused with the
new rules or not up to speed with
new technology. There is not a lot
of onsite testing, or onsite dem-
onstration and some people learn
better that way,” said Feick.
“We are doing a test site. We’re
taking our chambers over to the
feld here and doing different
methods of burial, we’re doing
one with 12 inches (of soil) over
top of it, one at 18 inches and an-
other at 24 inches of soil. What
that will do is in the winter, it will
tell us what kind treatment we get
at different depths and what kind
of temperature is maintained un-
derground.”
Mulch is being placed under-
neath the chamber, which will
take the nitrogen out of effuent
while it’s in the feld.
“We found, in the States they
put air in one of the chambers
and it takes a lot of their biomass,
a lot of their solids out of the
tank. What happens is when the
effuent gets to the feld now it
has no carbon source to denitrify
the effuent. Hopefully that will
effect, taking the nitrogen out of
the effuent that way,” said Feick.
The frst part of the tank is like
a normal septic tank, with anaero-
bic bugs; they thrive on next to no
oxygen. The second chamber has
air pumped into it and is where
aerobic bugs thrive. Aerobic bugs
will take a lot more of the bio-
mass out and break it down be-
fore it goes into a third chamber
with another large tank, which
pumps into the feld.
“The reason the third tank is so
large is, it will take a whole lot
of fow when they’re (the training
centre) having a convention and
then for the rest of the week it
will just kind of dose the feld so
you’re not saturating,” said Feick.
The project is similar to mu-
nicipal sewers, just scaled down.
Someone from the group will be
going to the feld about once a
month to check it. In the winter
they will check it for temperature.
There is more cold climate testing
available here than in the U.S.
New Septic tank research
Students at Wheatland Elementary had a chance to show off their
skills when they participated in a talent show. It was the frst year
the school put on a talent show, and it was open to everyone who
wanted to be a part of it. Students had to audition, but it was more
for the teachers to make sure the material would be appropriate,
and everyone who wanted to be in the show had a chance.
Staff from the Global Test-
ing Centre and Septic Pros
Buyers Group prepares
the feld for their research
project. The project will be
embedded in the ground
from now on, with some-
one coming in about once
a month to test the tem-
peratures and see how the
tanks are doing.

Gleichen
From the raising of the fag and the
playing of our national anthem, our day
was one fun flled event after another.
Last year, the RCMP started the RCMP
baseball/softball Challenge Tournament,
and it expanded to include more en-
tries this year. The children were kept
busy having their faces painted, going
for pony rides, wagon rides and go-
ing through the bounce obstacle tent.
Games were organized, and provided
free of charge, by the Community Centre.
Horseshoe pits were set up and the men
took on the ladies.
After the BBQ supper was served, the
community got to taste a Canada Day
cake, and then go to the Lions tent to lis-
ten to local musicians entertain Canada
Day attendees for several hours, until the
musicians fngers grew numb and it was
dark enough to see the wonderful fre-
works, organized through the Gleichen
Community Centre. Not all of the people
attending our Canada Day celebration
were able to attend the beginning of the
musical event, since the ball games went
on until into the early evening.
It was a great day to celebrate our
countries birthday and show how all our
community organizations can work to-
gether to make Gleichen’s celebration a
bigger, and even more memorable event.
A big “thank you” to all the volunteers
who put in the hours to make this event
go off without a hitch.

DECORATING WITH DOGS
Decorating when you have pets can provide unique opportunities to express
your own personal style and taste. Here are some tips –
1. Paw prints and nose smudges on glass doors and windows break up glare
and soften the light in a room.
2. Dog crates when stacked three high, can add height to a room and pull
the eye up.
3. Old towels and blankets thrown casually on upholstered furniture can add
a wonderful homey, country-quilt look to an otherwise bland room.
4. Common smooth upholstery fabrics can look almost velvety when
lightly textured with pet hair.
5. Doggie beds, randomly placed around a room can add color and texture,
much like throw pillows.
6. Shredded or chewed books and magazines send a message to guests
that they are free to relax and feel at home.

RCMP Alberta Integrated Traf-
fc Units (Sheriffs and RCMP), in
support of Road Safety Vision
2010 and with our enforcement
partners, will be involved in a
joint effort to reduce the harm
that results from motorcycle col-
lisions.
The summer months and
warm weather mean an increase
in the number of motorcycles on
the roads. The Alberta Integrated
Traffc Units want to stress the
importance of sharing the road
and using smart traffc safety
habits to maximize the safety of
Albertans. Although speed and
alcohol are often the root causes
behind motorcycle collisions, in-
experience is also a factor. It is
imperative that new riders devel-
op their skills in safe motorcycle
operation. This includes partici-
pating in driver training courses,
using bikes suitable to their skill
level and wearing approved safe-
ty equipment.
A motorcyclist’s relationship
with the road has more to do
with the journey than the des-
tination. Freedom is part of the
motorcycle experience but along
with that freedom comes a high-
er risk.
Motorcyclists don’t have the
same distractions as drivers in
a car (cup holders, cell phones,
CD players, computer plug-ins,
etc) but they still need to be
aware that the drivers around
them might have their minds fo-
cused on other things.
The Alberta Integrated Traf-
fc Units are asking drivers to
be aware of motorcyclists out
on the road and to be aware of
the space motorcyclists need to
maintain their safety on the road.
“Look twice for motorcyclists
when approaching intersections
or changing lanes and never un-
derestimate the speed of a bike,”
says Inspector James Stiles,
Offcer in Charge of “K” Divi-
sion Traffc Services. “Failure to
yield the right of way is a lead-
ing cause of motorcycle/ vehicle
collisions.”
The Integrated Traffc Units
also wants to remind motor-
cyclists that when they head
out on the road, they represent
thousands of people who love to
ride. Motorcyclists are encour-
aged to ride defensively and
make every effort to enhance
their visibility. Be alert at inter-
sections and make eye contact
with drivers before proceeding.
Stay aware of what’s going on
behind you because a rear-end
crash can be deadly. Position
yourself to be seen and stay out
of drivers’ blind spots. Realize
that your speed is often mis-
judged by drivers.
Every year, we respond to
many collisions in Alberta in
which there is unnecessary inju-
ry and tragic loss of life. By in-
creasing our public education ef-
forts, the Integrated Traffc Units
aim to make Alberta’s roadways
safer for everyone.
Live to Ride!

Nine years ago a local
Strathmore boy went off to
Vancouver to become an ac-
tor, and last week he came
back as a musician with his
band, Minto.
Evret Tucker graduat-
ed from Strathmore High
School in 1996. After work-
ing at the UFA for four
years, he decided to head to
Vancouver after enrolling in
a yearlong intensive acting
program.
“That’s how I met every-
body, we were all actors
basically and we all played
music and enjoyed it. Then
we decided to just write
songs and one thing led to
another. People asked us
to open up for them, other
friends, and then the wheels
started turning,” said Tuck-
er. There are fve members
in the band including John-
ny Stewart and Jimi Cuell,
but the three core members
are Ryan Hoben, Evret and
Kalvin Olafson.
Being a former resident
of Strathmore, Tucker had
a few ideas in mind when
he started planning to come
back to town.
“I noticed the Old Mill
would have been a great
venue but they were closed,
so I tried the green bar.
I had that in motion, but
then they fred all the staff
and didn’t want to take any
bands on, so we tried Ru-
mors, but they are closed
for the month of June. I
had the green bar kind
of booked for a couple of
months now and then that
fell through and so we were
scrambling trying to fnd
something and we ended
up playing Stix Lounge,”
said Tucker. The turnout
wasn’t what the band had
been hoping for, but with
the last minute venue, it
being a Monday night and
the fact they didn’t have a
chance to advertise, they
were still happy with those
who could make it. Minto
started off as an alternative
country band, which even-
tually evolved into rock
with a bit of folk mentality.
“The structure of the
songs, and the way they are
written could easily be folk
songs as well, but we have
electric guitars so it gets a
little bit louder,” said Tuck-
er.
“A lot of our inspiration,
or people we look up to,
are like Neil Young, Cra-
zy Horse, or My Morning
Jacket, they have that sort
of folk/country aspect but
they’re very rocking at the
same time, and that’s who
we sort of draw from a bit,”
said Tucker. The band writes
all of their own music, with
Tucker and Olafson writing
the progressions and struc-
tures and Hoben coming up
with the melody and lyrics.
“It’s kind of a collabora-
tive process.”
The band is currently
looking for management
and an independent label,
so they can tour more while
having a helping hand.
“We’re not looking for a
major label, major labels
are really suffering right
now so we want an inde-
pendent label that has a
sort of old school mental-
ity to it so they really work
with the artist and develop
them,” said Tucker.
“This is defnitely some-
thing we’re going to pur-
sue, when you work hard
and try to get something to-
gether and sacrifce lots to
make it happen, its harder
and harder to let it go.”
Tucker still lives in Van-
couver and is taking a de-
gree program in jazz and
contemporary guitar, while
the rest of the band are still
pursuing their acting ca-
reers. In the fall they will
be heading to Toronto for a
tour of eastern Canada, and
they plan to come back to
Strathmore and play again,
possibly next summer.
The band’s current album
is called, ‘Lay it on me’. To
listen to what they are all
about people can either

com/mintominto or www.

Former
local starts
popular band
Evret Tucker, a former Strathmore resident, came back to town to visit
family and perform with his band Minto. The band had a venue lined up at
the Green bar, but things fell through, so after a bit of hunting they went to
Stix Lounge at the golf course.

road repairS
In the Cluny area, Wheatland County
Public Works plans to start doing some
basic repairs on the roads. It’s just mi-
nor wear and tear, and they want to
fnish the repairs before school starts
again in September.
rCMp annuaL perforManCe
Staff Sgt. Larry Marzinzik presented
the new numbers from the Annual
Performance Plan, APP, in comparison
to last year. Property crimes, such as
break and enter and arson have gone
down. Addiction and illicit drugs went
down approximately 30 per cent. Drug
arrests have gone up, and drug traffck-
ing in the county has increased by a
whopping 250 per cent. Marzinzik said
this is because there is more focus on
surveillance and they are getting more
warrants. There was a major bust in
which a person renting a rural prop-
erty was watched and was found to be
traffcking and running a counterfeit
operation out of his home.
There are now nine RCMP offcers
bike trained, up from the four last year
and there has been a 17 per cent drop
in non-fatal motor vehicle accidents.
Stolen vehicles still remain a bit of an
issue, but Marzinzik said “90 per cent
of all stolen vehicles will be recovered,
I just can’t say what shape they’ll be
in.”
Land uSe ByLaw 2010-22
There was an amendment made to
the Bylaw, changing it so portable stor-
age is allowed for discretionary use in
Hamlets and recreational growth areas.
It must be brought before council for
approval as to whether it is for discre-
tionary purposes. Another amendment
is more than three unregistered, un-
insured vehicles parked on a lot in a
Hamlet or recreational growth area will
be a breach of the Bylaw.

Times Editor
If you’re an avid reader of the
Strathmore Times, you noticed
that we’ve done things a little
differently starting this issue.
Forgive me for overusing the
phrase, bigger is better – but in
the case of the Times, it is some-
thing we truly believe.
The new format will offer our
advertisers more space per page
than our previous size, while al-
lowing us to use bigger photos
for our local news and sports
coverage.
This new and exciting change,
along with our new publication
date and use of high quality
inks, will take the locally owned
and operated Times to the next
level.
As mentioned last week, ad-
vertising and the deadline for
submissions will be at noon on
Tuesdays instead of Mondays,
giving our advertisers that ex-
tra day to get all their material
ready. It also gives us that extra
day to deliver more of the news
that happens earlier in the week.
We are excited and honoured
to offer Strathmore, Langdon
and Wheatland County our free
publication. This is your Strath-
more Times - we’d love to hear
from you.
If you have any comments
about the new look Times, or
if you have a news tip to bring
to our attention, please do not
hesitate to contact us at (403)
934-5589 or via e-mail at info@
strathmoretimes.com. You can
also visit us at 114 Canal Gar-
den (in the second foor of the
Trendsetter Homes building).
Bigger Times ahead
Continued from page 9
“It will beneft us in the fact that
there will be someone who will be
a go-to person for all agencies – in
the way of communicating family
violence issues – and I’m not just
talking about investigations,” said
Marzinzik. “It (helps) communi-
cations gaps to be flled.”
He added that most cases of do-
mestic violence are passed down
through children who previously
experienced such trauma. By
helping all parties involved, the
goal is to stop this form of behav-
ior being passed down through
generations.
“This (new project) is not just
reactive, it’s preventive,” said Mar-
zinzik. “So if we have information
coming in about a family crisis
… where we see red fags com-
ing up prior to incidents, then this
person (the coordinator) can also
be that information gatherer that
could help the appropriate agen-
cy offer the counseling, assistance
or support to prevent that crisis
from turning into a police fle.”
The project will receive fund-
ing over three years as part of
the provincial government’s Safe
Communities Innovation Fund.
“This is the frst time that we’ve
ever embarked on such a project,”
said Karen Pease, the Executive
Director of the Community Crisis
Society. “It is a huge project for
our community.”

Eagle Lake Nurseries staff
a big factor in
40 successful years!
What got you interested in the
industry and why did you come to
work at Eagle Lake Nurseries?
Eagle Lake Nurseries is one of
the biggest nurseries in Alberta
and employees are made to feel
like family. There are also lots of
opportunities to learn.
Kaushique Bhownick,
production/shipping
I have been working at Eagle Lake
Nurseries for 29 years. I grew up
around a lot of farms and decided to
come work here because I wanted
a good working environment and
agriculture is my passion.
Narinder Sihota,
nursery production supervisor
Why do you think Eagle Lake
Nurseries has been so successful
for 40 years?
I think Eagle Lake Nurseries has
been successful because of the
dedication the company has shown
its customers and staff and their
involvement in the industry. After
14 years, I look forward to coming
to work every day.
Eileen Mahoney,
shipping supervisor
There are many things that make
this nursery successful including:
Tony and Anita are true leaders
and set the example for the staff
of what hard work and dedication
look like; the quality of product
they sell and the reputation they
have established for their product;
the constant efforts they do to stay
on top of things, to try new things
and explore new opportunities; the
efforts that are made to ensure
quality service for customers; and
the care that is shown to all staff.
Marie Mortreuil,
controller
What have you learned while
working at Eagle Lake Nurseries?
I was offered a job here in 1999
and at that time I did not know
much about plants. Working here
inspired me to learn more and
Eagle Lake Nurseries offers their
staff further education and great
on-the-job training.

garden centre supervisor

A scavenger hunt, water balloons, and relay
races were a part of the curriculum for stu-
dents at Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy, on
June 28. A feld day was set up for the kids to
have fun and celebrate the end of the school
year. Students and teachers alike took part in
the events, which included a marble held on
spoons relay race, and a plate relay. Due to
the wind the plates couldn’t be balanced atop
the plastic stick and instead were balanced on
its side.

The second annual Canadian Rockies International Rodeo took place this past weekend at the
Strathmore and District Agricultural Grounds. Men and women took part in various rodeo events
and promised to be back in Strathmore next July.

Last weekend saw the
second annual Canadian
Rockies International
Rodeo, CRIR, come to
Strathmore. The rodeo
consisted of representa-
tives from the Alberta
Rockies Gay Rodeo Asso-
ciation, ARGRA, and the
International Gay Rodeo
Association, IGRA. This
was the 17th annual Ca-
nadian Gay Rodeo, but
only Strathmore’s second
time hosting it. President
of ARGRA, Greg Hols-
worth, said they plan to
host it again in Strath-
more next year, and in
years to come.
“We couldn’t be hap-
pier to be here, we’ve
felt nothing but wel-
come,” said Holsworth.
The festivities started on
Canada Day this year and
ran until the fourth. The
rodeo boasted the usual
events which would be
seen at any small town
rodeo, with the biggest
difference being men and
women could compete in
all events. Some events
were created specifcally
for the gay rodeo: steer
decorating for instance,
goat dressing and wild
drag.
For the goat dressing it
was a two-person team,
and they had to put a pair
of underwear on a goat,
and make sure they didn’t
fall off.
“We’re trying to build
more than a rodeo,” said
Holsworth. There was a
silent auction, a gay art
show, entertainers and
a dance. For those who
wanted, there was even
camping, so people would
not have to drink and
drive, and they would be
right next to the grounds.
People came from all over
to take part in the rodeo,
either as a spectator or a
competitor.
“The furthest I know
of is from Australia,”
said Holsworth. ESPN
was there as well, flm-
ing the events and fol-
lowing the circuit. There
are 15 gay rodeos being
held in North America
this year, and the com-
petitors who were here
are part of the circuit. The
top fve will be invited to
the fnals, which will be
taking place sometime in
November. The rodeo was
also 100 per cent volun-
teer driven, with most of
the volunteers from Cal-
gary. The next gay rodeo
in Strathmore will be July
1 to 3, 2011.

People attending the Show and Shine at Kinsmen Park on July 17 can look forward to seeing lots of bikes, cars and trucks at the show. This 2010
custom Harley Davidson, the BBQ behind it and the 1966 Chevrolet, short box pick-up truck will be at the show. The BBQ may look like an engine,
but is guaranteed to work like any other grill.

For 17 years classic cars, trucks, and
motorcycles have graced Kinsmen Park,
showing off their glossy coats and su-
percharged engines. This year will be
the same as previous years, boasting a
day of fun and sun which people of all
ages can enjoy. There are a few things
different this year though, such as the
Strathmore Fun Runners raffing off two
BBQ’s.
“The BBQ looks like an engine and
most people don’t even realize it’s a
BBQ, they walk right by it, until you
point it out,” said Todd Blakney, a mem-
ber of the Strathmore Fun Runners club.
“It was made by a company down in
the States, we’re hoping they’ll change
it and make some different ones (for
next year),” said Shawn Palendat, presi-
dent of Strathmore Fun Runners.
Tickets are being sold right up until,
and during, the day of the Show and
Shine. Tickets have already sold out on
one of the BBQ’s, there are only a few
hundred left for the second one. The
tickets are selling for $2 each and 100
per cent of the proceeds will be donat-
ed to local charities.
“We’ve generally given a lump sum
to one group, but this year we want to
split it up,” said Blakney.
Another difference is they used to
do a burnout contest, which is when
a person spins their tires creating a lot
of smoke. This year, due to liability rea-
sons, the burnout contest has been cut
out. The show will be taking place rain
or shine, and Blakney said the average
is about 250 vehicles being shown. It’s
a free event for anyone who wants to
come down, but it’s a $10 cost for peo-
ple bringing their cars down to show
off.
“Anyone from anywhere can come
down. For those that want to come walk
around for a bit, have a beer and relax,
there are beer gardens,” said Palendat.
On Friday the group will be meeting
at A&W for a meet and greet, then they
will cruise around Strathmore before
heading to the Lodge to visit the elderly
for a bit, and then off to Muscle Mo-
tors to show off the shop. Saturday will
be full of activities for kids and adults,
there will be games, and even a Hot
Wheels race track set up for the kids.
An all girl band will be playing; there
will be the raffe, a 50/50 draw and door
prizes. There will also be a chassis dy-
namometer, which basically measures
the power of a vehicle. Another treat
this year is there will be six special cars
at the show. There will be a 2010 Dodge
Challenger, ’10 Ford Mustang and a ’10
Chevrolet Camaro. The other three
cars will be the same three brands and
names but the 1960’s versions, so car
enthusiasts can compare what a differ-
ence 40 years has made.

Both Logan and his dad Jim Crooks are looking forward to the Summer Games being held in
Peace River this year. Logan, with a lot of hard work and determination, made the baseball team
as a pitcher for his zone.

Times Reporter
The Alberta Summer
Games are coming up
in just a few weeks, and
another Strathmore teen
will be heading off to
compete. Logan Crooks,
13, was picked for base-
ball as a pitcher for his
zones team. Logan has
been playing ball for
eight years, and his dad,
Jim, has been his coach
for most, if not all, of
those eight years.
“He has a real passion
for the game, he just
loves to play ball, it’s all
he does at home,” said
Jim.
“Its good for him too,
you have to go to ID
Camps and compete for
a position.”
Each athlete had to
participate in at least one
AABC Talent ID Camp
before they would be
considered for the Sum-
mer Games. The frst Al-
berta Sumer Games with
zone participation was
held in 1974, and began
as a provincial govern-
ment initiative allowing
all Albertans to partici-
pate in amateur sport.
Every year the games are
hosted in a different lo-
cation around Alberta,.
This year it will be at
Peace River.
Currently Logan is on
the Strathmore Bantam
Reds AA and he hopes to
one-day play ball profes-
sionally.
“I want to try to get
into Berkley,” said Lo-
gan. He is already look-
ing ahead to the future
and plans to apply for a
scholarship to Berkley.
“When you’re about 15
you get put into a ban-
tam drafters and there
are colleges that come
to look at you and stuff,”
said Logan. His team
will be playing fve to
six games from July 19
to 22. His team is made
up of other members
in his zone, and he met
his teammates when the
Reds faced them a few
weeks ago.
“We actually played
against them here in
Strathmore,” said Logan
adding that the Reds
lost. Another member
from the Reds did try out
for the Summer Games,
but Logan was the only
one picked.
“Some of the guys are
happy, some don’t care,”
said Jim, about the team
reaction.
Logan hopes to play
for either the Philadel-
phia Phillies or the To-
ronto Blue Jays when
he’s older.
Batter Up!
Soccer season went out with a bang for Strathmore minor soccer players aged three to
eight-years-old, U4 to U8. The kids had a chance to meet SpongeBob, play in bouncy
houses, and enjoy hotdogs and juice on June 29. “We always have some sort of wind up
for them,” said Mark Shoren, president of Strathmore minor soccer.
Every player was awarded a medal for participating and received a photo of themselves and
their individual team. Players in this age group learn how to kick the ball and some basic
skills. “We strive for the fun part of it,” said Shoren.

wood feld. Bottom: Adam, left, Jackie and Jaime Smith take a break from the sun, for food

It may not look like much now, but this is the sight of the future soccer felds. The felds will be professional size, and there will be the option of turning them into four smaller felds for when the little soc-
cer players are on the feld.

Shannon LeClair Photo
Shannon LeCLair
Times Reporter
Members of the Strathmore Minor Soc-
cer Federation, or any soccer players re-
ally, will have a new feld to look for-
ward to in the new season. For three
years, the talk of building two new
full sized soccer felds has been in the
works. The new felds will be located
behind Walmart, just east of the Ranch
Estates. As part of the next development
stage there will also be a road which di-
vides the felds.
“We had some land originally at the
northwest corner of the agricultural so-
ciety, that they were going to lease to us
to develop and that sort of fell through.
Then last October, the town and de-
velopers working in that area (behind
Walmart) were required to have a per-
centage of the property green space,
and someone on council knew we were
looking for it and offered it to us and
we’ve just been kind of working through
things since then,” said Mark Shorhen,
president of Strathmore Minor Soccer.
The felds will be roughly 80 yards by
100 yards, and they can split into four
felds for the younger teams. Fundrais-
ing for the feld has been an ongoing
thing, Shorhen said. They received a
grant for $100,000, but the fnal costs
may be double that amount.
Full irrigation will be put into the feld,
and Eagle Lake Sod is donating enough
sod for one full feld.
“They (the town) have given us about
a 90 day time frame to get everything
done, the irrigation and the sod, and by
the end of August the felds will be ready
to walk on, not to play on, but we’ll be
able to have the grand opening,” said
Shorhen. The new felds won’t eliminate
Parkwood because there are so many
teams, said Shorhen, but it will allevi-
ate having to play on poorly maintained
felds. Tenders for the project are to be
signed sometime in the next few days,
and there wont be a ground breaking
ceremony but there will be a big grand
opening when the felds are ready.
Minor soccer gets new professional sized felds
The Bantam Reds AA team practiced their batting on June 30. The team
is gearing up for a tournament this weekend, and they want to make sure
they are in top shape. They have been having a bit of an off season and
are hoping for the chance to turn it around.

SADEK, Margaret Adline
It is with deep sorrow
that we announce the
passing of our mother,
grandmother, sister,
aunt, and very dear
friend to many. Margaret
left us on July 4, 2010
at the age of 79 years.
She was born in Kipling,
Saskatchewan on May 6, 1931 to proud
parents John and Rosalia Churi. Margaret
was predeceased by her husband Alex; her
parents, brothers, and sisters. She was a
woman that everyone cherished, especially
her six boys that called her Mom: Gene
(Kathy), Irvine, Albert, Stan (Rena), George
(Debbie), and Herbie (Tammy). To her
grandchildren and great grandchildren she
was known as Grandma or even Nana. She
was also known as Sister by Isabelle. Along
her journey through life, Margaret and her
husband farmed between Saskatchewan,
Alberta, and British Columbia and later
ended their journey in Strathmore, Alberta.
You could always fnd her smiling in her
gardens or putting food on the table as
friends and family would visit and no one
left without a full belly. Margaret was one
who would always put someone frst before
herself, even at the end. Everywhere she
went there was a warm smile for all she
knew. She will be sadly missed by all. If
desired, donations may be made directly
to the Canadian Diabetes Association (204,
2323 32 Ave NE, Calgary, AB, T2E 6Z3).
