Page 10 Donations needed to
fill Christmas hampers
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Despite a surge of interest after the Strathmore and
Wheatland County Christmas Hamper Society was
brought into the 20th century with social media and
Library opens doors various communication tools, the openhanded organi-
zation is perplexed with donations and hamper appli-
cations that took a nosedive in comparison to previous
years.
Page 17 A large majority of tables and shelves remain bare,
covered with only 10,000 items – a 30 per cent decline
over last year at this time.
While donations are expected to climb closer to
the Dec. 15 deadline, a growing concern of fracturing
among the community is spreading some doubt about
the accumulation of this year’s target – and last year’s
final count – of 33,000 items.

this year, there’s something going on that isn’t real ob-

launched and Wheatland County Christmas Hamper Society.
“There is a tremendous amount of outside com-
munity projects, that’s one thing. But there’s a lot of
in-our-community projects that are also going on too.
It’s commendable to everybody doing something, but
the problem with dividing and everybody doing their
own individual projects is you get to the point where
you really fear that you’re going to fracture, and you
will fracture.
“The whole system and the people that are really

because you’ve fractured it in so many directions that

nobody is going to benefit.”
Expecting a large turnout last year, the society pre-
pared 260 hampers. Although applications remain low
at 105 as of last week, Stone expected to receive over

I was appalled about an incident that took place at our Remembrance Day Ceremony. One of our
Veterans was wearing a medal, pinned on by his dear, since departed wife, which he proudly wore
for his stint in Vietnam. Someone went up to our Veteran and tore the medal off of his jacket, stating
it had no place in Canada! He then left, with the medal. Comrades, nobody has the right to do this
to anyone!! A Veteran is a Veteran, whether or not you agree with the war he fought in! To my way
of thinking, there is no war that has ever been popular, not Korea, not Vietnam, not World War II nor
World War I! Yet, our men and women fought for us regardless of where and when! They received
medals for what they did, for their bravery and sacrifice, and have every right to wear them proudly
on their uniforms! For someone to walk over to rip a medal from their jackets, simply because he
did not agree with the war, a medal earned for their service, is unforgiveable!! This is not our deci-
sion to make, ever! I don’t know if the medal was, heaven forbid, thrown away or not. If it wasn’t, I
would expect that it be brought to the Legion, with or without a letter of apology, no questions asked.
We will then have the honour of returning it to our deserving Veteran and make his Christmas a little
happier. After doing the wrong thing, please make it right. Thank you!

Hawks

TYLER LOWEY
Times Reporter

The Hawks senior girl basketball team tipped off their new
season inside the friendly confines of the Holy Cross Colle-
giate gym.
A pair of former coworkers have teamed up behind the
bench of the Hawks this season. Joe Lapage has returned to
the coaching chair after leaving Holy Cross Collegiate as their
principal nine years ago. Back in the day, he used to coach
the senior girls’ program. He was also responsible for hiring
the senior boys coach at the time.
“I hired Michelle to teach a long time ago. So it was kind
of funny and a role-reversal type of way that she asked me to
come help out and coach this season,” said Lapage. “For me,
it’s all about the relationships you build with the team and we
have some great girls on the team this year.”
Last year’s head coach, Brad Everett, is helping out the ju-
nior varsity boys program this year. Also gone from last year’s
squad is Yulisa Solda, Alexandra Eygenraam, Cassidy Filipi-
