The Strathmore and District Chamber of Commerce held a luncheon on March 28 which had guest speakers Jason Hale, Glenn Koester and Michael Ell provide a bit of a year in review. Strathmore-Brooks MLA Jason Hale was the rst to speak, talking about economic development, Alberta oil and the Wildrose 10-year debt free capital plan. From the provincial perspective these are good times. The economy continues to grow steadily, mainly in the oil sands sector, but other sectors like forestry and agriculture are also performing well, said Hale. He stated that Albertas assets include approximately 170 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, around 13 per cent of the total global oil reserves, and about 98 per cent of Canadas oil reserves. Another competitive advantage that Alberta has is no provincial sales tax, which means Albertans arent gouged an additional seven or eight per cent at the till. It also means more money going into small business, which keeps the economic wheels turning. Hale spoke on the positive work being done in recent years with the organization of ethical oil, to work done by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. Part of the challenge in getting our product to market is projecting the positive image of the industry and defending our record, said Hale. Alberta is fast becoming a hub for research and technology development. We are the most technologically advanced jurisdiction for the oil industry. Technology has also allowed operators to reuse water and reduce the impact of development. One of the great things about the energy industry in Alberta is seeing it always working to improve its environmental performance, and this will be important to maintaining a healthy economy. Hale wrapped up his speech by stating that he is looking forward to going into the spring session and continuing to represent the constituency in the legislature, standing up for our citizens, holding the government accountable for tax dollars and decisions made and ensuring they are in the best interest of all Albertans. Strathmore Mayor Michael Ell spoke next, stating that there has been a lot that has happened over the past year. He mentioned the cost from the Thomas Drive improvements was $3 million, the Wildower reservoir was $7.7 million, there is $600,000 slated for the Brentwood Reservoir, and to redo the water and sewer lines and resurface on Lakeside Blvd in 2014 is $1.6 million. Running a town is costly, said Ell. Continued on Page 2

On Monday March 24, 2014 Strathmore RCMP received a dispatch to a Break and Enter to a business at the front entrance of the old IGA building on 4 Avenue in Strathmore. Individual(s) had pried open the front door. Police are requesting anyone who has information regarding this crime to contact the Strathmore RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

MANNY EVeReTT Times Contributor The 2014 Annual Talent Showcase at Standard School happened March 24 for a packed gymnasium, after having been postponed from the previous week due to the snow storm. The graduating class of 2014 organized the event as a fundraiser under the direction of Crystal Cavanagh and Shelby Gregory. Students were encouraged to showcase art work as well as musical performances (both vocal and instrumental), highland dancing, cheerleading, a karate demonstration and a brother comedy duo. A couple of highlights of the evening included kindergarten student Quinton Mavor singing country song My Heart has a History, and a stand-up comedy routine by brothers Jacob and Benjamin VanDresar. The evening wrapped up with Grade 12 student Lindsay Goebel singing Landslide, accompanied by Nick Gerristsen on acoustic guitar. Goebel has grown up singing in the community and will be graduating in June. The graduating class held a successful bake sale and silent auction throughout the evening. Upcoming events to look forward to at Standard School include their Elementary Spring Concert and Elementary Production in June.

He spoke about the downtown overlay bylaw, which was approved recently. There are several reasons for this overlay. We want to encourage property owners and businesses to improve their stores and to make them more appealing. More attractive stores will encourage more people to come downtown and will bring the shoppers to your stores, said Ell. Bringing the arts community downtown will encourage vibrancy and will again be able to get more people downtown. Ell said the town administration and council want to increase the population downtown; more residents downtown will encourage more businesses to want to open

downtown too. The town is (posed) for a building boom. Some development has started, such as the Co-op Centre on the north side of the #1 Highway. Once all of the ve Area Structure Plans are in place and they have been approved, these ASPs are going into the next stage and then construction will start, said Ell. We have been working with Olds College and we have been trying to encourage them to locate a campus here. Bow Valley College already offers some programs and were looking at ways to assist them to expand their programs. We want all of these things for Strathmore and more. Ell also spoke of different events coming to town that will attract tourists, and will present opportunities for businesses to grab some of that money coming into town. Wheatland County Reeve Glenn Koester said he had a story of something the county and outlying communities have been working on for some time, the Wheatland Regional Partnership (WRP). Koester said it has always been there in the background, but recently it has begun moving forward. It was used to benet a community, Rockyford, with a paved road, which was also a benet to the county because it continued the paving on a road they had started to pave previously. The most recent part in this story that is unfolding before us is we have all agreed to sit down and everybody, all the councillors in the area will be able to say what is important to them, what they want to see out of this partnership, what they want it to grow, said Koester. He said there is a plan to set up a meeting with a mediator and come up with a set of protocols. It is something that can be reviewed, added on and grown upon. The WRP is something Koester said he believes is the future to the region and now is the time to really get it going. He suggests speaking to your local councillors and telling them what you would like to see happen in your area. The meeting wrapped up with a few questions to each of the guest speakers.

The Friends of East Wheatland excited about the future of schooling


MANNY EVeReTT Times Contributor It seems like the never-ending story of schooling in East Wheatland might have a light at the end of its tunnel. In April of 2013, Alberta Education and the Provincial Government approved the construction of a new stand-alone, consolidated K-12, stateof-the-art school in East Wheatland with a projected opening date of September 2016. The parents and residents in the communities of Gleichen, Hussar, Rockyford and Standard are still awaiting verdict of a third reading of the proposal to the county. The group Friends of East Wheatland was created with a cross section of representatives from each community being affected by the probability of a new consolidated school for the students in the area. The groups main mission is to be committed to work at fundraising for enhancements that will not be covered by the government. Standard representative Christina Adamson said, our group is committed to enhance the school, not to build it. The provincial government is providing the basic bare bones of the school and our group is fundraising for the enhancements to make it a state-of-the-art facility for the kids. Some of the items the group is looking for help with rst are funding for the construction of a larger gymnasium, a commercial kitchen, a multi-purpose room and drama centre.

Youth Club ready for spring break


SHANNON LeClAIR Times Reporter The Easter break is quickly approaching, which means many parents will be looking for things for their kids to do during the day. The Youth Club of Strathmore and Strathmore FCSS are offering a taste of some of the summer camps with the spring break day camp. It is kind of a segue into the summer camp, so each of the days is a theme were going to have in summer, said Youth Club Program Director Shannon Zieman. The rst day, April 22, will be about local heroes. The RCMP and the re department will be there to spend time with the kids, answer questions and complete some activities. There will also be a survival day, which will be hosted by Brenda Holder of Mahikan Trails, the same group who organized the towns CSI-themed spring break last year. Holder will be offering a condensed version this year, planning to t everything into one day. A lot of the activity that day will be outside, pending weather, said FCSS Coordinator Catherine Walsh. There will also be a circus-themed day with details to be announced later, and nally a day focused on culture. Because it is just a day were going to focus on aboriginal culture. So we have some guest speakers coming in, they are going to do dancing and make fry bread and that kind of stuff, said Zieman. There is a partnership between FCSS and the Youth Club this year, which allows the two groups to coordinate and plan events like the spring break camp. The camp is for kids ages 6 to 12, and runs from April 22 - 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $80 for the week for Youth Club members and $100 for non-members. Zieman said youth 13-years-old or older are welcome to come as volunteers, but they must pre-register. Last year the town had 33 children registered for the spring break activities. Space is limited so preregistration is encouraged. For more information, or to register, call 403-934-4918.

Capsule Comments
Some people use garlic (fresh or in capsules) as a supplement. Although there is little evidence it lowers blood pressure, it does have short-term effects on cholesterol and blood clotting. It is recommended that those people on blood-thinning medication not use high doses because of the increased risk of bleeding. Also high doses of garlic should be stopped 1-2 weeks before major surgery. There are many suggestions for curing hiccoughs. Some work and some dont. One new way, which may seem a little extreme, evidently works really well, especially for people who hiccough for long periods of time. The method is called digital rectal stimulation and means just what it says. Using a surgical glove or even kitchen plastic wrap on a finger and massage the inside of the rectum. Hiccoughs should stop within minutes. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is becoming a more common problem. Listening to very loud music in earphones even for a short time can damage those tiny sensory hair cells in the inner ear and cause hearing impairment. Keep the sound down in earphones to avoid damage. Here are four ways of preventing cancer. 1. Dont smoke. 2. Eat sensibly: heavy on fruits and vegetables, limit fat, alcohol only in moderation. 3. Maintain a healthy weight. 4. Dont deliberately bake yourself in the sun. These are easy to understand but often hard to do. But they definitely reduce your risk of cancer. Need help stopping smoking? Check with our pharmacists.

Brothers in arms stand rm


SHARON MCLEAY Times Contributor Fire chiefs from the nine services in Wheatland County stood in support of the Strathmore and Carseland District reghters, at a public meeting held at the Carseland Hall on March 27. The Strathmore Rural Fire Fighting Association (SRFFA) had informed the county that the association was terminating its agreement to provide re service, under the Joint Fire Service Agreement with Wheatland County on March 23 and Wheatland County posted the information on their website as a precautionary emergency alert on March 24. www.wheatlandcounty.ca . As the SRFFA had the oversight of the Strathmore Rural and Carseland area re halls, residents were concerned about service delivery and what it would mean for their re crews. A public meeting was held to discuss the repercussions. To the Strathmore Rural Fireghter Association I would like to recognize your dedication over the last number of years. We denitely appreciate at Wheatland County what the volunteers, and dont forget they are volunteers, have put into that. I also want to recognize all the work done by both the Strathmore reghters and Carseland reghters, as they are from different halls, said CAO Alan Parkin. He said according to the contract the SRFFA could not just suspend services. Termination of the contract left Wheatland County with a responsibility to nd re service provision. Also, the county has currently $541,902.20 of capital investment money injected in the Strathmore re service, and over $2.5 million had been invested over the past ten years. Parkin said the county was responsible to protect ratepayer interests. He made it clear that the county did not have the desire or capability to take over the re service at this time. Wheatland County has instructed administration to review options for the long term operation of the Strathmore Rural and Carseland Fire Fighting response areas, and bring a full report with options as outline in the 2013 Wheatland County Fire Service review report, said Parkin. Both Fire Chief Mark Heilman and Brian Hamiliton, a Strathmore reghter, said the crews were holding up well under the extreme pressure. Both were positive about recent crisis management decisions and they were solidly certain the re crews would continue to meet the communitys safety needs. Heilman said an additional eight crew members had been recently added to the roster. Parkin supported the move to recruit young volunteers and said it is shown to increase the stability of re halls over the long term. After a marathon of meetings with the other re associations in Wheatland County, including re chiefs and re crews, cooperative effort developed a creative interim solution. The Standard Rural Fire Association stepped up to provide temporary oversight, so the Strathmore and Carseland crews could have protection and could operate, until a more permanent solution could be reached. Council ratied a 90 day interim agreement with the Standard Rural Fire Fighting Association to provide re services in the Strathmore Rural and Carseland Fire Fighting Response areas, at their April 1council meeting. The re crews from the two halls will be responding as usual, only under the Standard Rural Fire Fighting Association contract. Standard Rural Fire Association is interested and capable and has the standard operating agreement to have your current re chief and re department members fall under their umbrella, with no change in service absolutely no change in service. It just means a different leadership team that may give some direction, said Parkin. Basically, we are just trying to help out in order to keep all the volunteers at the Carseland and Strathmore Rural re halls responding. Every re department in the county is totally committed, we have had a meeting or two about that, to do whatever we can to help rst responders provide service to the

entire County of Wheatland. The county has been very cooperative through this whole process, said Brett Gates, the Standard Rural Fire Association President. It should really be business as usual. Standard also signed a 60-day lease agreement on the equipment from the two halls, to allow the re crews access to the equipment, until a better arrangement can be made with the SFFRA. Parkin said they had been in constant contact with stakeholders and he is posting the details of the meeting, and further developments, on the county website; reassuring everyone that the county wants the process to be transparent and informative as possible. He said he would give the public the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The SRFFA has gone through some crippling blows in the last year. Although valiant efforts have been made to help it recover, the recent posting seems to indicate it might be beyond resuscitation. Parkin was still hopeful and said the SRFFA have been very cooperative, but others consulted at the meeting were not so sure. The SRFFA is holding its annual general meeting on April 21. All members are asked to attend. It is open to the public; however, only members in good standing have voting privileges. Parkin said anyone with concerns can contact him at (403) 934-3321.

Pillars of Strathmore
SHANNON LEClAIR Times Reporter Three more Strathmore High School (SHS) Alumni were inducted as Pillars of Strathmore on March 26. The award, which recognizes former SHS students who have gone on to become pillars in their community, rst began in 2010, but it has taken some time to get all of the rst recipients honoured. The induction ceremony held on March 26 saw former students Robert Mark Daye, Dallas Seitz and Amanda Howard recognized for their achievements since graduating SHS. Mark Daye was in the 1987 graduating class, and his former teacher Art Eeles spoke about him and why he was being honoured. After leaving SHS Daye went on to study veterinary medicine, which eventually lead to his becoming a certied veterinary surgeon. Today he is the part owner, with his wife as his business partner, of the Ohio Veterinary Surgery and Neurology and the Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital. Daye performs orthopedic surgery daily and trains young surgeons to prepare them for certications with the American College of Veterinary Surgery. I was very touched and honoured to be recognized by Strathmore High School. Particularly heartwarming were the heartfelt words given by former and current teachers who presented the plaques to this rst class of inductees, said Daye. It meant the world to be personally inducted by a teacher and mentor I respect as much as Mr. Art Eeles. He taught with high expectations and led his classes by excellent example. The Pillars of Strathmore High School is a great program and I feel very fortunate to be included in such excellent company considering how many Strathmore High School students have gone on to have amazing accomplishments. Amanda Howard, class of 2005, was also in attendance for the ceremony, and was presented with her plaque by her former teacher Louise Bleier. Howard has always been a top athlete, winning MVP for both varsity basketball and track and eld while at SHS, and in 2003 was voted the SHS Female Athlete of the Year. In 2005 Howard was chosen to represent Canada as part of Team Canada Elite Softball. After graduation from SHS, Howard went on to Oklahoma City University (OCU). In 2006 she was presented with the CoSida - the ESPN Magazine Academic Honors Award. During her successful softball career with Oklahoma she was part of the team that won the NAIA National Gold Championship in 2007, was named player of the year in 2009, and set two NAIA regular season records in 2009 when she hit 26 home runs and also accumulated 193 bases. After graduating from OCU with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology and Masters of Science Degree in Amanda Howard Health and Human Performance Howard became an ACSM Certied Personal Trainer and certied member of the Alberta Kinesiology Association. I am honoured to receive such a wonderful award. Mr. Kyle Larson, Mrs. Louise Bleier, my family and many teammates throughout the years thank you for all the encouragement and support. I know I need to thank so many more people but this quote says it best, it takes a village to raise a child, said Howard. The third inductee of the evening, Dallas Seitz, was unable to attend the ceremony since he is now based in London, England. His sister accepted the plaque on his behalf, which was presented by Charlotte Cummings. Seitz, since graduating in 1989, has gone on to become a successful artist. He attended the Juilliard School of Performing Arts in New York. He also earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts designation. He has spent time as an artistin-residence at the Banff Centre, and has had his work exhibited around the world. He currently lectures at the University of Arts London. He also continues to make and exhibit his own sculptural, video and photographic works. I am very honoured to be included in the Pillars of Strathmore. Growing up in Strathmore I never really thought being an artist was going to be an option for me but having great support from family and friends and especially Charlotte Cummings, my Art and Drama teacher who was such an inspiration to me, pushed me to pursue a career in the arts, said Seitz. I hope other young people in Strathmore have the support and inspiration to follow their interests no matter how challenging. The Pillars of Strathmore idea began with a donation from the Rodehutskors family. Steve Rodehutskors attended SHS when it was known as Samuel Crowther School. He had always excelled at sports and after leaving Strathmore had gone on to the University of Lethbridge. From there he attended the University of Calgary for his Bachelor of Science, and decided to give football a try, something that hadnt been available in Strathmore when he was younger. Rodehutskors was a natural and was eventually drafted to the CFL as a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for ve seasons, where he won two Grey Cups in 1988 and 1990. He went on to play for the B.C. Lions, Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders. He also attended the University of Saskatchewan from 1994 to 1998 and earned a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Rodehutskors went on to set up a successful veterinary clinic that served Strathmore and area. It was after this that he was diagnosed with cancer, and in 2007 he lost his battle. A trust had been previously set up in his name to help with medical costs. After Rodehutskors passed, his family donated Dallas Seitz the funds to SHS, who then created the Pillars of Strathmore recognition award. Rodehutskors was the rst recipient, inducted in 2010. We had said then that we wanted to use it in a way to recognize outstanding achievements of graduates. Not for stuff that they had done necessarily in the building, but as pillars of whatever community they move in to after, said SHS Associate Principal Kyle Larson. It is to recognize outstanding accomplishment in your chosen eld and so now were hopeful that we will get some people who will contact us and say have you considered so and so. Mark Daye Our goal is to annually put up two or three, have an induction class each year of at least a couple of people that we would induct each year. We feel there have been a lot of former students that have moved on from here, from Strathmore High School, to become pillars in their own community or in their own profession. The ceremony was a heartwarming experience and was a great way to reconnect formers students and teachers. Larson said he and the other staff were pleased with how powerful of an evening it turned out to be. The deadline for nominations will be the end of September each year, and then the plan is to host an induction ceremony each year. We would ask that if anyone is interested in nominating somebody that they contact the school or contact myself here and let us know and give us just a little bit of background and how we could contact these people, said Larson.

Thought for the Week ~ If we didnt struggle through some things, we would never develop the strength and stamina we need to survive in this world.

Lots of laughs
Lyalta Community Club held their annual Yuk Yuk night on Saturday, March 29. This years theme was cowboy country. The event consisted of a catered dinner, and an evening of comedy. This event sells out every year and people keep coming back for more. Comedians Donovan Deschner (l-r), Jeff Toth and Ian Wallace were on fire and had the crowd in stitches.

Standing up for Ukraine


KEVIN SORENsON, M.P., CROWfOOT Parliamentary Report Many constituents are contacting me to condemn Russias illegal military occupation of Ukraine. As your Member of Parliament, I am pleased to see so many of us feeling the same way and saying so out loud. Were in good company. Prime Minister Stephen Harper feels so strongly about the events in Ukraine that he travelled to Ukraine this past weekend. He met with Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and reafrmed Canadas strong support for the new Government of Ukraine as it undertakes the important steps of embracing the economic and democratic reforms needed to restore stability and prosperity in the country. Our Prime Minister also condemned Russias illegal military occupation of Ukraine and reiterated the call for immediate de-escalation by Russia. Canada is also in good company. On March 24, Prime Minister Harper met with the leaders of France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission in The Hague to reafrm support for Ukraines sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. Known as The Hague Declaration, these world leaders signed a document that states, International law prohibits the acquisition of part or all of another states territory through coercion or force. To do so violates the principles upon which the international system is built. We condemn the illegal referendum held in Crimea in violation of Ukraines constitution. We also strongly condemn Russias illegal attempt to annex Crimea in contravention of international law and specic international obligations. We do not recognize either. The Hague Declaration goes on to insist that Russias actions will have signicant consequences. This clear violation of international law is a serious challenge to the rule of law around the world and should be a concern for all nations. The signatory nations have imposed a variety of sanctions against Russia. They pledge to intensify actions that will have an increasingly signicant impact on the Russian economy, if Russia continues to escalate this situation. Canada is contributing to a political and security monitoring mission to Ukraine, led by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Canadas support to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission, through Canadas Global Peace and Security Fund, will assist the OSCE to report on the security situation in Ukraine, foster peace and stability, encourage respect for human rights, and enable an environment for inclusive political

dialogue in Ukraine. In addition, Canada has provided support to help Ukraine stabilize its economy, promote economic and social development, and helped provide for urgent medical assistance for Ukrainians injured while standing up for democratic change. Canada, along with a number of other OSCE countries is also taking part in a military observer mission that will report on military activities in Ukraine. Canada was the rst Western nation to recognize Ukraines independence on December 2, 1991 and we have enjoyed close bilateral relations ever since. Yet, the major reason Prime Minister Harper takes Russias actions so seriously is because these bullying tactics are just plain wrong. I am proud to report that my constituents are freely telling me that they feel the same.

Zombies and Jenny Craig


PAT FULE Fule for Thought So Im still fat. On Friday, at the high school cafeteria, I bought a sandwich. I also asked for a Pepsi (thats what Elvis drank). The student worker immediately asked if I wanted Diet! Diet Pepsi Elvis never drank DIET PEPSI! Are you calling me fat, I asked the kid? Instead of an answer, the kid just laughed little brat. Deb and I went to Canmore this weekend as my father-in-laws Lions Club had a NHL Alumni Game as a fundraiser. These visits can be the thing you dread, as Im a touch heavier, and havent seen some people in a while. I ran into a guy I played ball hockey with for the old Canmore Hotel Bucks, back in the early 80s. Well, he said. You and I are now built to stand up the mountain winds, arent we? Wow, I thought, what a pleasant and subtle way to say: Pat, youre fatter than in the 80s! We reminisced a bit, and then I waddled off to watch the game! I ran into another friend from high school days I zipped up my coat! We got to talking about school now and back then. He tried to tell me that kids are worse now, but I pointed out some of the rotten things Id seen as a Jr. High kid. Joe, remember the downright evil kids we were stuck with? I saw kids get punched in the head or stomach for no reason. There were kids dragged down stairs by their underwear, the dreaded gaunch jobs, and ush jobs (swirlies)! Kids nowadays arent as violent or cruel as they were in our town in the 60s and 70s! We talked more, and I reminded him of some of our own simpler game play. There were dirt lump and snowball ghts, king of the hill, where you fought to take a hill and hold it every kid for himself! Even among friends we made weapons of mass construction! We made rubber band guns and shot the bands at each other. You took a long, sturdy ruler, 2-4 clothespins, and strapped the clothespins to the at side of the ruler, and they became the triggers. Youd put one rubber band loop through the opening of the clothespin and stretch the other loop to the other end of the ruler. With a press of the clothespin, voila instant ying rubber band projectile! It was a simple but lethal weapon, to raise welt after welt, of childhood fun! We staged elaborate battles, created forts, and as I mentioned, raised great, large welts on the enemy. Believe it or not, we did have a code of honour: no face shots. That was until my brothers friend Steve stuck his gun in my brothers peek hole and shot him in the eye! I had rarely seen my brothers rage against anyone but me, and even as his eye was closing shut, he swung wildly, trying to punch Steve in the face. Just then my parents called to say they were leaving work and coming home. We tore apart the forts, pulled down the blanket we had taped up, and with that, tore off a big patch of the wall paint! When my parents got home, they asked why we had hung up a calendar, but we just said itd make us know when tests and stuff were coming up! Thats why Im worried about a possible Zombie Apocalypse. Ive only ever shot a rubber band gun and a laser tag pistol! How will I protect Debbie, the dog, and the hedgehog? One of my pals Ken, has offered to teach me to shoot at a shooting range. I mean, if the world ever did go crazy, sure, I could make an effective rubber band gun, but how long is that going to hold off a blood crazed zombie? Even if I did nail it in the head with all four bands, Id only gain a few seconds of life! So thats why Im trying (again) to get t and trim down. Besides getting healthier, I need to get ready for the zombies. As it is right now, Id probably look like a pretty good human pot roast to a zombie, and I cant even shoot a real gun yet! Besides, if youve seen Zombieland, then you know cardio is a big rule to follow. A couple of lady friends of my in-laws tried to teach me some yoga on the weekend. I gure if I can learn yoga and get more exible, Ill be able to crawl through small openings and climb fences better, so I can stay one step ahead of those zombies! I gure with real gun training, a healthier lifestyle, and some Rambo Boot Camp, I can survive the zombies. Besides, if worse comes to worse, and I do get in shape, I only have to out run Debbie!

Carls Way nominated for 7 Alberta lm awards


SHANNON LEClAIR Times Reporter A few years ago Rosebud Theatre actors Aaron Krogman, Royal Sproule and Jordan Cutbill decided to launch their own production company, Smoke Signal Media. Shortly after the launch the men were approached about producing a historical movie on Carl Anderson, a colourful farmer who had managed to get the Eastern Irrigation District (EID) from the CPR and put it in the hands of Southern Alberta farmers in the 1930s. Carls Way is a 35-minute historical drama that details Andersons legendary negotiation with CPR, who actually paid the farmers of the EID to take over in 1935. The production was recently nominated for seven Alberta Film and Television awards including best dramatic production over 30 minutes. The 2014 Alberta Film and Television Awards will be held at the TELUS Convention Centre in downtown Calgary on April 12. We are delighted to have Carls Way nominated, said art director and camera operator Royal Sproule in a press release. When we formed our lm company, we dreamed of producing our rst signicant lm in three to ve years, so to get the opportunity so early on was is a big surprise and huge honour for us. One thing to which Sproule attributes their success so far is that as soon as they got the assignment they surrounded themselves with experienced lmmakers. Sproule and his colleagues approached award-winning Albert lmmaker Francis Damberger to direct and Wes Doyle as Director of Photography. Having two veterans like Francis and Wes guiding us through the shoot was the key to the success of Carls Way, said Sproule. It was amazing to watch them walk into a location, quickly eyeball it out and plan out where the cameras and the actors would be placed. This was a huge learning opportunity for us. It was a shock to discover, in my home province, such a great story that I knew nothing about. I jumped at the chance to bring the story to Albertans and Canadians, said screenwriter Aaron Krogman. Its great to be part of the tradition of Albertan content, made by Albertans, for Albertans, said producer Jordan Cutbill. The rst screening of Carls Way will be in Brooks on June 14. The lm will be available to the general public at the Eastern Irrigation District Historical Park in Scandia this summer.

Rosebud Theatre actors are up for seven Alberta Film and Television awards on April 12 for their 35-minute documentary Carls Way.

John & Dorie Paris


JOHN GODSMAN Times Contributor Johns family came to Canada from France in 1910. His father, Jean Piere ( Joe)was born in St Jean de Luz, and his mother Elizabeth was born in Pau. Both of these towns are in the Pyrenees, which form the border between France and Spain. They came separately to Vancouver, where they met and were married. Initially, his father was a lumberjack in Campbell River, then on the mainland. After several years, they moved to Florida because of his mothers asthma, but it didnt help so they moved to Alberta in 1917. Being unable to speak English at rst was very hard, but they persevered. His father got a job at LK Ranches near Dalemead, because he was very good with horses. Eventually, they were able to get their own farm south of Langdon, where his father continued breaking, selling and trading horses. John was born in Calgary in 1925, and had two sisters - Martha, who married Rob Jackson, and Mary who married Ed Barlow. All are now deceased. His family moved to the Cheadle farm in 1934. Doris family (Drake) came to Prince Edward Island from Britain in the late 1800s. Her father, Angus McLean (Mac) came west to the Cheadle area, on his own in 1919, and her mother Jessie joined him in 1921, after they were married in PEI. Her family had always been farmers, and her Dad just followed the tradition. In the dirty 1930/1940s he raised foxes to make ends meet. They farmed all their lives in the Cheadle area. Doris was born in Strathmore in 1923, and had one brother Robert Drake, who is now deceased. John and Doris met while they were both attending Fairplay School just south of Cheadle, where they completed their education through Grade 10, before moving on to Western Canada High School in Calgary. Doris worked for four years at the main branch of The Royal Bank of Canada located at 8th Ave. and Centre Street, where banks occupied all four corners! She and John were married on January 25,1947 at Central United Church in Calgary, and her name

changed to Dorie instead of Doris. They have a son, Guy, born in 1949, who is married to Wendy, and they had two sons, Jason and Douglas, who have provided John and Dorie with four greatgrandchildren. Their daughter, Marlyn, was born in 1952, and is married to David Townsend. They have no children. They started farming in 1947, six miles south of Cheadle on Hwy. 24, where their children were born. They belonged to Carseland United Church, where Dorie played the organ and piano for 15 years. They were also involved with the Cheadle Community Club, 4-H, Carseland Lions, then Cheadle Lions where John was fortunate to be their rst president. Over the years, they continued leasing and buying more land, in the surrounding area. Some of the leases were 15 miles away, making the movement of machinery and cattle a slow and tedious job. John decided he would like to try real estate, so in 1970 he took a real estate course, thinking it would work well with farming. He started working with Toole & Cote in their farm and ranch division. Then in 1972 he joined Bill McGuire Real Estate making very good connections with foreign investors. These were the days of the Cold War in Europe, and a lot of French, Germans and Italians came to this area and purchased farm land. In the early 1970s, John, Dorie and son Guy started a farm partnership with Jens and Clara Lehmann. John and Jens had met through a real estate transaction. Those were very successful years, with good crops and prices. At this time, they had students from Germany, Denmark, and Britain, who had come to this area, to get work experience on farming in Alberta. In 1977, Bill McGuire passed away, so John and Dorie formed their own company in 1978 - Jondor Realty, with an ofce in Calgary, and for a short time an ofce in Strathmore. In the next 25 years, they had very good people working with them, some of them going on to have very successful real estate careers. For the last 10 years, they had their daughter Marlyn working with them. John was happiest when he was out dealing with farmers and ranchers. They continued farming until 1984, when they sold their farm and moved to Red Deer, to be closer to their son Guy, wife Wendy, and their sons Jason and Douglas, who lived on their ranch, north of Rimbey. In 1986, John and Dorie bought a little farm by Bluffton where they spent many pleasant summers. They moved back to Calgary in 1991, then to Strathmore in 2000, where they still live today. John retired from his real estate business in 2003, after many years of being a farmer and a realtor, work he thoroughly enjoyed. Although ofcially retired, he still retains an interest in farming to this day. Both feel they have been very fortunate to have been able to travel to places in Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, the U.S.A. and across Canada. Looking back, the biggest change theyve seen over the years is the technology for farm machinery. Think back to the days of old, and compare the tractors and combines of yesteryear and today.
FAN OR FOLLOWER? Kyle Idleman says in his book Not a Fan that, the biggest threat to the church today is fans who call themselves Christians but are not actually interested in following Christ. They want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benets, but not so close that it require anything from them. The Bible tells us that Jesus had a lot of followers but He also had a lot of fans. When we read the New Testament we can see that many times the gospel writers mention that big crowds followed Jesus. We have a story in John 6 where Jesus feeds a crowd of 5,000 people with ve loaves of bread and two sh. The next day the people follow Jesus to the other side of the sea. We would think that these people are true followers of Christ, but Jesus saw their true motivation and says in John 6:26, Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were lled. Jesus knows that these people are not going to all the trouble and sacrice because they are following Him, but because they want some free food. After that

Jesus offers Himself as the bread of life to these people in verse 35. At this point the crowd has to decide if Jesus will satisfy or if they are hungry for something more. Heres what we read at the end of the chapter. John 6:66: From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. These people were not true followers of Christ. They were big time fans of Jesus. They just wanted the blessings that came from following Jesus, in this case free food, but never wanted to have a close relationship with Him. So, here is the real question: how does Jesus dene what it means to follow Him? Jesus says in Luke 9:23: If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. Following Jesus takes total surrender and commitment. It takes denying self, in other words dying to self daily. It is time for us to declare our loyalty. So, the question that I want to leave you with is: are you a fan or a follower of Jesus Christ?

Plea for help over Gleichen money pit


SHARON MCLEAY Times Contributor A tragic tale of adversity touched the heart strings, but not the pocket book, of Wheatland County council on May 25, with a request from residents to reconsider their request for $4,224.65 in utility charges for the month of January, which had resulted from water pipes breaking and running unnoticed. Their water consumption cost was $2,454.12 and their sewer cost was $1,679.04. They had been unable to secure a reliable maintenance company, house sitter or tenant, so the house was left vacant. Insurance wouldnt cover the ood, as the requirement was to have the house checked every two days. The only family member close to Gleichen, where the home was located, was battling lung cancer. The property has been fraught with difculties and has been very stressful for our family, said the owner. When Pop, as they called him, left the home in his estate to his heirs, he didnt have much money, so the family responsibly took out a loan and paid the taxes. They tried to rent the home, but repeatedly were left with bills from deadbeat tenants. Since 2009, the home has had broken pipes, ooded basements, faulty meters and overows on water tanks. They had layoffs with subsequent unemployment as employers went bankrupt, and they had to use up savings. Now this bill was drowning them on more levels than one. They were not blaming council for the incident but were reaching out for anything that would keep them aoat. Council was torn on just what should be done. They have gone through hell, but I just dont know what can be done for them, said Councillor Ben Armstrong. I have been in the leasing and renting of property for a number of years and similar things happen to other peoples property too. You have to expect some of it. Typically if you turn the heat down, you have the water shut off. Under insurance they require someone to go through the house every couple of days. I understand their plight and I am sorry it happened to them, said Chief Administrative Ofcer (CAO) Alan Parkin. Reeve Koester said it was a difcult situation, but cautioned council they needed to remain consistent in their decision making. Councillor Berniece Bland asked if there is some way they could arrange to make payments. Parkin said they could arrange to make payments. Council did not approve the write-off of the bill. RESErVE AUCTION BIDS SET CAO Parkin said he isnt anticipating any more interest in properties recently put up for auction by Wheatland County. He presented printed copies of the property available and council asked what would happen if they dont sell. The independent land appraisals have been done. If bids dont reach those numbers, then they dont sell. Then we can take them over and clear the books, but it is rare we do that or we hold them in abeyance until they go through again, said Parkin. Some of the properties have been up for auction three or four previous times. The reserve bids ranged from $1,190 up to $86,500. Funds generated from sales go to pay off the unpaid taxes. Costs of putting them up for sale are added to the sale price. Properties are offered as is and some require environmental cleanup and other maintenance, so Parkin cautioned bidders to do their research on the property before they place bids. HIrING FAIr LENDS GOOD LEADS CAO Alan Parkin reported the McBride Hiring Fair was well attended and presented some good hiring leads. I attended it with eight or nine other organizations and it was really worthwhile. Through that I obtained 18-20 resumes that could lead to potential employees for the county, said Parkin. The county had a table set up, where people could get information on the county. He said another fair would occur in the fall, offering an opportunity to participate again. WhEATLAND HOUSING rEQUISITION Council accepted the Wheatland Housing Management Body requisition for 2014, for $259,487.04, which was a $10,687.04 increase from the interim budget. The interim budget originally allotted $248,000 for the requisition. The fee is set by provincial assessment. This is an annual payment that covers the countys share of costs for housing services. Other municipalities in the county also make shared payments into the management body, to secure housing opportunities for seniors and low income residents.

Carseland community reaction to re contract failure


SHARON MCLEAY Times Contributor There was a mixed response from the Carseland community, to news that the Strathmore Rural Fireghting Association (SRFFA) could not fulll the terms of their Joint Fire Service Agreement and that Standard Rural Fire Association would be given temporary oversight for their re hall. A public meeting was set up by Rita Kruger and held at the Carseland hall on March 27, to discuss the ramications of the contract termination. It drew Wheatland County councillors and department staff, the public and members of the various county re associations and re crews. I dont think that board was looking at the best decisions for Carseland. We want to eliminate the political rhetoric that this re hall has gone through with the Strathmore Fire Fighting Association. We are proud of our volunteers in this town, it has made our town what it is and the volunteer reghters are part of that, and we want to have that recognized. We are not against working with the other board, as long as things are done properly, said Adrian Knaus. The Carseland community has been advocating for over a year to separate from the SRFA, as community support has indicated they have the community resources to support a separate association. Last years re service review had set out to Wheatland ofcials that such a move is a desirable development. Wheatland CAO Parkin concurred that it was the path the county was on and cited passages of the recent re service review that supports this; but he warned, it would take some time to get resources and structures realigned in the county, so it could eventually be accomplished. Parkin indicated cooperative interaction and putting old resentments aside would go a long way in facilitating the process. This is a good opportunity to do this, said Parkin. I want people to participate. There were deep scars still in evidence in some of the Carseland community members, over the 2013 reinstatement issue concerning the former Carseland Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief. When the issue resurfaced in the discussion, there was a call for a show of hands on the issue. Audience voices indicated there were split opinions on the issue. Parkin said that the county was aware of the issue and did appreciate the Carseland community concerns, but suggested it needed to be put aside to move forward. Parkin suggested the individuals involved may need to take alternative actions. Parkin was rm and direct at the meeting, as there was some heckling and one heated exchange did erupt in the question period. However, parties stepped back and focused on the positive, to deal with the issue at hand. Councillor Don Vander Velde also asked people to calm down and asked community members direct any comments to him, as his wife was inappropriately harassed over the phone earlier in the day. He stated given time things would work themselves out to the positive. The edgling Carseland Fire Association was newly formed March 22, 2013. The members got a surprise with the announcement that their society was in danger of being insolvent, as they had failed to le the annually required forms with the provincial Societies registry and they had not yet held an annual general meeting that is required by the societies Act. Parkin indicated he could facilitate help to get the association back on track. Several members of the Carseland community indicated they would address the matter and organize to rectify the error immediately. There were community members interested in getting help to ensure the Carseland association was set up in a fashion that was acceptable to the county. There are ten thousand rumours and a thousand thoughts; I would like to see us nd one direction that we can go, so all the people in our area are satised. If we dont have volunteers we have nothing. If we dont have people willing to sit on the board because of the conict, then we still have nothing. I would like to see us put all the conict behind us and move on, and make this a more viable community. Its time to man up and get the job done. We need to get our feet in the stirrups and get on with it, said Ron Buttars. Carseland call statistics were provided, as there were some questions about what statistics were on le with the county. Parkin said he would keep everyone updated about developments moving forward and asked that people contact him with their concerns. He also requested they remain patient as organizational details were being put in place.

Rosebud Theatres Diary of Anne Frank brings history to life


LAUREEN F. GUENTHER Times Contributor For opening night of The Diary of Anne Frank, at Rosebud Theatre, March 28, I had my Kleenex ready. I also braced myself to view on-stage violence. The diary was written, after all, by a Jewish girl in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, and we all know about her tragic end. But surprisingly this play, directed by Paul Muir, isnt a tear-jerker, and although violence and terror hover over the entire story, they never enter the stage. Annes family, an elderly bachelor, and another family of three have hidden in an attic because theyre Jews and the Nazis are rounding up Jews. Most of the tension here and theres plenty of it is the day-to-day conict arising from eight people, previously strangers, living together in very close quarters. But, like in most families, theres lots of hope and laughter here, too. The play takes place entirely in the attic, and Morris Ertmans set, with sloping rafters, tiny alcoves, and a wall and stairwell jutting upward, made me feel I truly was in an attic. I loved that a page from Annes diary is painted, by Cheryl Daugherty, down the wall and across the oor. A two-hour play thats set in such limited space might get tiresome, I suppose, but thats far from the case here. Theres too much tension occurring onstage, and were constantly experiencing the terrifying-but-hopeful outside world through the eyes, ears and imaginations of the characters. Cassia Schramm plays Anne Frank, who always looks to the future, declar ing that, after the war, shell be a dancer, or maybe a writer. Surrounded by sombre adults, shes the cheerful spot in the attic, perhaps even a little too cheerful. David Snider is a stand-out as Annes Father, Otto Frank, drawing empathy from the rst moment to the last. He maintains a consistent accent and stays so rmly in character, he stayed there even during our standing ovation. Sniders wife, Jeany Van Meltebeke, plays Ottos wife, Edith. Her role is more subtle the dutiful housewife, the anxious mother whom Anne doesnt understand but Van Meltebeke also convincingly becomes her role. Chrissie Muldoon plays Annes proper older sister Margot. Troy ODonnell, Amy Burk and Byron Allen are the selfabsorbed Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan, and their moody son Peter. Mike Thiessen is Mr. Dussel, the bachelor who declares he always gets along with children but torments Anne every moment of every day. Anne and her attic family have two lifelines to the outside world: Miep Gies, played capably by Alysa Glenn, and Mr. Kraler, played by Aaron Krogman, who produces the other remarkably-believable accent in this show. The Diary of Anne Frank isnt what I expected, but it brought Annes story so clearly to life, Ive had her and her family on my mind ever since. Ive already begun to re-read her diary and to further research her life. I also nd myself thinking differently about people affected by the political conicts of our own time. I urge you to see The Diary of Anne Frank before it closes May 17. You may not shed tears, but you will be challenged by this play. Call 1-800-267-7553 or go to www.rosebudtheatre.com for tickets.
The Diary of Anne Frank premiered at Rosebud Theatre on March 28 and will run until May 17. Byron Allen (lr) Cassia Schramm, Jeany Van Meltebeke, Chrissie Muldoon, Troy ODonnell, Amy Burk, David Snider, and Mike Thiessen.

Did you have a baby in 2013?


The Strathmore Birth Forest has seen a decline in registered babies. In 2012 there were 54 trees planted for new babies and for 2013 there have only been 34. The Chinook Credit Union, Eagle Lake and Town of Strathmore in partnership with Communities in Bloom have set forth the Birth Forest initiative to plant a tree for each newborn child in Strathmore registered with the program. There is no cost to register, only a living legacy for your family and child to enjoy. The Birth Forest is located along Green Meadows Drive and has been growing birth trees since 2008, when this location fills, other public lands will be planted. The concept is close to Rob Piries (an organizer of the Birth Forest) heart and he would love to see his town grow and beautify. The trees for registered 2013 newborns will be planted on May 30 of this spring. Registration forms can be picked up at the town office, the health unit, Chinook Credit Union and Eagle Lake. William Dukta turns a year old on April 5, and to commemorate his birth, his mother Meagan registered him in the program.

Youth club transportation donation


Alberta Treasury Branch manager David Wilks presented a cheque for $2,000 to the Youth Club of Strathmore to help support their efforts to purchase a bus or van for the club. ATB makes many community based sponsorships and felt that the clubs need was one that was well worth supporting. Transportation is one of our biggest hurdles, we do field trips that require transport, and the cost with renting a bus for these events is astounding. explains Shannon Zieman program director with the Youth Club. The club is taking registration for summer camps and will be holding their next big event Friday Night Laughs on May 30. Councillor Pat Fule (l-r) Shannon Zieman and David Wilks.

Making do with little or none


SHARON MCLEAY Times Contributor Family and Community Services Support (FCSS) ofces across the province are running out of belt notches to tighten, as no new funding has been designated for them in the provincial budget. FCSS has had no increased provincial funding for the last six years, said Lynn Walker, coordinator for the Wheatland FCSS. The last increase was in 2009, and the current provincial budget shows no increases are designated for 2014-2015. Jeff Carlson, President of the Family and Community Support Services Association of Alberta, said in a province-wide media release that cost pressures on preventive social services agencies continue to grow, due to tremendous population growth in Alberta. The residents of over 320 municipalities, including the Town of Strathmore and the County of Wheatland, are served by FCSS. FCSS funding to community agencies provides services to Albertas most vulnerable seniors, children, youth, adults, newcomers. In many rural communities, the municipal FCSS program is the rst line and the last line of contact for residents, said Carlson. In times of tight nances, often groups are asked to form partnerships to make ends meet. The associations already have a cost-share contract with the province and their municipal partners, who supply 20 per cent of costs. Walker said that Wheatland County has stepped up in the past to aid with service delivery, but she is waiting after their the FCSS annual general meeting to see what will be needed for the coming year. Carlson said some municipal partners have contributed more than their fair share, to make up for front-line budget shortages. In turn, Carlson said that municipalities have a reasonable expectation that the province will provide needed funding to the programs offered by FCSS ofces. I am proud of the all of the municipalities that have stepped up to the plate. We are concerned that all our citizens are taken care of. I was surprised at how many people, especially from our villages, do use the services of FCSS. The County of Wheatland has doubled their share to help in the past, said Wheatland County Reeve Glenn Koester. Other areas in that sector have gotten increases from the provincial government. I was wondering if it is because there is not a lot of complaining and they interpret that as no need. For a lot of people, it is the only place they go for help. There are a lot of smaller centers that get a little bit of money from the government and they try to keep a door open for people, but they may not be able to do that anymore. I would hope they (the provincial government) look at this. Carlson is sending out a warning call. Sustainability of the FCSS Program is at the tipping point. A at-lined budget for eight years equates to a budget cut that doesnt account for population growth, or annual ination. Not only is Family and Community Support Services falling farther behind in its ability to simply maintain its level of preventive supports to Albertans in many cases, services must now be reduced or eliminated - there is no room for expanding the important work, said Carlson. If the provincial ministry is increasingly investing in prevention across its program areas, and all program areas received a budget increase, why is Family and Community Support Services not included? There is an annual general meeting for all the provinces FCSS ofces scheduled on April 11. This discussion is expected to be on the agenda, with more information for front-line ofces anticipated following the meeting.

ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter The Strathmore High School (SHS) Spartans made an excellent step in their journey to zones and provincials, winning 12 medals at their annual home badminton tournament on March 29. Roughly 250-300 students lled the SHS gym from all over the province. They did very well. Twelve medals is very impressive, Jerry Flaws said, athletic director of SHS. This tournament was big. Its one of their toughest ones of the year because theres so many people, and timing in the season too. This was the Spartans second home tournament of the season, but they will also host counties against Holy Cross Collegiate and Standard High School on April 2, on the way to zones on April 12. The Spartans won badminton zones last year. Theyd like to defend that championship. They have a good shot at it, Flaws said. The tournament gives the Spartans who also had several fourth place nishes a boost of condence, as well as an insight to their competition. Most of the teams we played in this tournament, well face at provincials, badminton coach Kenton Zandee said. They have a good idea where the measuring stick is. I would expect most of Strathmores students would get through counties just because theres not that many schools competing. Ultimately, it comes down to how we do at zones, and hopefully well get a few people to provincials. Bronze winners included: Matt Cool and Nick Nizetic, Alicia Kennedy and Jayda Stewart, as well as Lauren Zandee and Jared Dougan. Jared Dougan also won a silver with Reid Muenchrath, and his own silver in singles. Lauren Zandee was also heavily decorated beside her bronze, with a gold in singles, and another gold in doubles with partner Shayla Pollock.

Rockyford Ringers snag silver


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter The Rockyford Ringers hosted U19B Provincials for ringette from March 28-30, going undefeated through four games. With high hopes going into the gold medal game against Lacombe, the girls were down by two goals in the last ve minutes. That was probably the fastest game weve ever played. Weve had a lot of history playing against Lacombe; that was our fourth time playing them this year, Ringers coach Warren Kalbhen said. The Ringers netted two goals in the last ve minutes to force overtime. However, four minutes in, Lacombe scored for Provincial gold. That was our only loss in the tournament, Kalbhen said. And it was our rst loss against them. Theyre a pretty evenly matched team. It was a fun game, they just happened to win. Rockyford had even defeated Lacombe in round robin play, 10-7, on March 28. They also won against the South Calgary Legacy, NW Calgary Blaze, and Drayton Valley the latter in the semi-nals. Kalbhen said he was disappointed in the nal loss, but more disappointed that he wouldnt be coaching the team next year after 14 years behind the bench.

They were awesome, Kalbhen said. It was nice having half of Rockyford come out to watch them play too. The Strathmore Ice placed sixth at the tournament, winning two of their ve games. Similarly to Rockyford, the Ice lost their nal game in overtime, but to Spruce Grove 5-4. They had also beaten Spruce Grove in round robin on March 29, 5-1. We were pretty evenly matched, Ice coach Ed Meyer said of his last contest. It was a really good game pretty exciting. Strathmore had lost to Drayton Valley and Sherwood Park in round robin, but won against NW Calgary to meet with Spruce Grove. Meyer believes they ended in the standings where they should have. We had kind of a shaky start, he said. Its been a tough year. No one even really expected us to go to Provincials. We had to beat the top Calgary team to get in to Provincials, so we denitely earned it. Meyer commended his team for everyone pulling their weight, as it was necessary for them to go as far as they did. Its been a team where not really one player stands out even our least skilled player, if she doesnt contribute everything she can, then we dont win, he said. We did the best that we could.

Older teams suffer, younger teams sprout


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter With numbers already larger than last year for Strathmore Minor Soccers U4, U6, and U8 teams, President Mark Shorhen had hoped the same pattern would carry over for his older age groups. For the most part, the younger kids are doing well. The older ones, were still having issues to get them to sign up. I dont know what exactly it is, Shorhen said. We probably wont have a U16 team this year, unless something comes out of the woodwork. The deadline to register is March 28. Its just so frustrating because I know the high school team has two or three times of what they need for a soccer team every year, Shorhen said. This season, Strathmore will have at least two girls squads: U10 and U16. Shorhen is still working on a girls U12. Another good turnout was at Strathmore Minor Soccers Annual General Meeting (AGM) on March 23. A few hundred kids enjoyed themselves at the wind-up party, while numbers tripled, Shorhen said, at the AGM. Five new board members were appointed, including a new secretary and treasurer. We discussed basically what we wanted to go forward with, Shorhen said. Some of those issues included registration numbers, talks with the Ag Society regarding a potential indoor facility, and discussing with Councilor Bob Sobol to ensure Strathmore Soccer stays in town.

Lacrosse booming in Strathmore


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter Registration for Strathmore Lacrosse has closed for the upcoming summer season, but with 230 players enrolled, numbers are up signicantly from 2013. Its up probably about 25 new players from last year, said Strathmore Lacrosse President Chris Iversen. I think people are just hearing about lacrosse, from word of mouth especially at the younger ages. Fifteen teams have been made, including two mini-tykes, tykes, peewees, bantams, and girls. At the young levels, were focusing on their basic skills, like scooping and catching, just to get the idea of the game, Iversen said. Along with one junior team, this year there are three novice squads a rst for Strathmore Lacrosse. Novice, Iversen said, is when play starts becoming more competitive. He also noted that the Strathmore Venom will be able to select some novice players for an elite team to represent the town at a tournament this season. Not only that, but the club is one of the host associations for the 80team Canada Day Tournament, and are submitting one team at every level in the B division. The only spots still available for Strathmore Lacrosse are with bantam; practices begin mid-April, for games in May. Iversen recommends the game of lacrosse for all athletes, for teamwork and friendship, but especially hockey players in the off-season. Lacrosse is a great game for that, although it is quite a different game from hockey. Pretty well the only similarity between the two is that they have goalies; otherwise its closer to basketball than it is to hockey, rules-wise, he said. Its really good just for general game awareness, and for getting good hands for hockey players; soft hands are an important skill in hockey, and lacrosse develops that really well.

Venom to co-host 80-team tourney


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter A tradition that began in 1977, the Canada Day Lacrosse Tournament now sponsored by the Calgary Roughnecks will be taking place from June 28-30 at the Calgary Soccer Centre. For this year, and next, Strathmore Lacrosse will be one of the two teams hosting. Roughly 80 teams from novice to midget will be participating in the event. Its one of the, if not the biggest, lacrosse tournaments in North America, said former president of Strathmore Lacrosse, Todd Betterton. The kids come sometimes from all over the world. Weve had teams come from Australia and the Czech Republic come over before. Primarily, its North America a lot of teams from the U.S., including a team from California thats been coming up for quite a few years. Strathmore is part of the Calgary District Lacrosse Association, along with Okotoks, High River, Rockyview, and one team for each Calgary quadrant. Each year, two host clubs drive donations and build a volunteer base for the tournament. Its critical to the success of the tournament, Betterton said, who will still be volunteering though he is no longer president. Calgary SE will be hosting alongside Strathmore; any prots that arise from the Canada Day Tournament will be split between the two associations. Its a way for our club to keep fees low, and its a way for our club to buy equipment and oortime. Its also a way to help progress the game of lacrosse in Strathmore, Betterton said. But its a major, major endeavour for us. The Strathmore Venom will be sending four teams to the tournament, facing off against 1,400 other players. It brings exposure to teams theyve never played before. Its typically higher-level lacrosse, Betterton said. Youre going to be playing some teams from B.C. and from the U.S., and from potentially out east, that have played the game a lot longer than we have here in Alberta. Current president of Strathmore Lacrosse Chris Iversen, and head of sponsorship Deanna Weis are still looking for help. Over 100 volunteers will be needed for the tournament.

The bantam Rocky Mountain Raiders won provincial gold on March 29, defeating St. Albert in a best of three series. Three girls with Strathmore connections Hailey McCallum, Karissa Hammond, and Jane Jacobs were key parts to the teams success.

Rocky Mountain raid Provincials


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter The female bantam AAA Rocky Mountain Raiders fueled by three local players, earned provincial gold against St. Albert Raiders winning the best-of-three series, 2-0. Rocky Mountain defeated St. Albert in Cochrane on March 28, 5-1, and also on March 29, 3-2, in Okotoks. The team was ranked number one going into Provincials. I think the players bought into the puck possession style of game that wed asked of them, Rocky Mountain coach Jordan Fenton said. They worked extremely hard on both sides of the puck extremely dedicated and driven. We were very creative on the ice. In Game 1, Strathmores Hailey McCallum nally opened up the scoring in the second period, against a tough St. Albert netminder. The goalie was very good. In the rst and second games, she stopped lots of pucks. I think in the rst game we had 40-something shots before we even got our rst goal, McCallum said. My line, we just kept shooting and shooting. She stopped everything. McCallum opened the scoring in Game 2 as well, but had help in both matchups from Carselands Jane Jacobs, who attends school in Strathmore. Jacobs scored two in the third of Game 1; nally some results after 46 shots on net, to St. Alberts 16. It was persistence I guess, Fenton said. The players continued to get quality shots on goal. We started to pay the price to get in closer to get secondary scoring chances. On March 29, with the score 2-2, Jacobs assisted on the powerplay gamewinning goal, with just over a minute remaining. Again, Rocky Mountain dominated offensively, with 43 shots on net. It was hard at times but we never gave up, said another Strathmore player, Karissa Hammond. We just had to keep shooting and the forwards had to go to the net to get the rebounds. Rocky Mountain defeated the Calgary Outlaws and the Red Deer Chiefs to

reach the nals against fth-seeded St. Albert. St. Albert, I have to give them a lot of credit. They worked extremely hard, Fenton said. They just played a really strong energy game, where they collapsed and blocked a lot of shots. Their goaltender was outstanding. Fenton mentioned that all three local girls McCallum, Jacobs, and Hammond have been integral to the teams accomplishments this year. Hailey was the leading assist-getter on our team throughout the playoffs, he said. Jane has been an extremely offensively gifted defenseman, and she is paired with Karissa the two compliment each others skills very well. Fenton feels that it is also necessary to acknowledge the many local minor hockey programs in which his squad started, because it led to so much success. This is the rst time these players have come together to play on a composite team made up of players from a large draw zone, he said. Much of the credit needs to go back to the volunteers and coaches that helped to develop their skills.

One hundred and sixty boys born in 1999 tried out for the Zone 2 Alberta Cup team on March 29 at the Family Centre. The team will be trimmed to 20 players to represent Team South for the Alberta Cup taking place in Strathmore from April 24-27.

On March 25, 2014, Kirby Marshall Wilson, loved by everyone who knew him, passed away peacefully after a valiant battle with a brain tumor.

160 hopefuls
ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter Divided into eight teams, 160 bantam boys lled the Family Centre on March 29 to make the Zone 2 cuts for the Alberta Cup, taking place in town April 24-27. The hockey team will be chopped down to 20 to represent Team South. We give each team two skills sessions. Then theyll do three rounds of games, director of operations for Team South Neil Glionna said. Hockey Alberta lays out drills, because what this group is going to do, all seven other zones are going to be doing the exact same. The drills ranged from combat to rush to skating to puck pursuit. They want the best skaters, the best puckhandlers basically the best at every position, Glionna said. The 14-year-old bantams, Glionna said, were a bit scared of the process. They know theyre being watched very closely, he said. At the Alberta Cup, Hockey Alberta will start evaluating. Out of that, theyre going to invite the Top 40 to tryouts to represent Alberta in the 2015 Winter Games. Thats the ultimate goal. Not only that, but scouts from the WHL and other junior legues will be watching the Alberta Cup. These are the kids that get drafted, Glionna said. Last year we had a number that were drafted in the rst round from Hockey Alberta. The skill comes in cycles, according to Glionna; last year, Alberta was very strong. This could be a weaker year, but you never know, he said. Zone 2 only had 143 kids attend tryouts last year; this years jump to 160 makes a large difference for cuts. These boys will be 15-years-old next season, making the upgrade to midget, and bringing a whole new skillset to share, Glionna said. Its fantastic. Theyre going to learn so much. One hundred-and-forty kids are going to leave here and not move on, but those 140 kids are going to learn stuff that they can take back to their club teams next year, he said. They will be a step ahead of all the other kids on their team.

Tristan Thompson: Where is he now?


ARYSSaH STaNKEVITSCH Times Reporter He nished with nine points in his rst midget season, and then became the top scoring defensemen in the AMHL in his second. Former UFA Bison Tristan Thompson nished with 34 points in 33 games this year, and his since moved on to the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL. I think training in the summer helped a lot, the 17-year-old said of his jump in points. I was working with a couple guys from the Western Hockey League, on my offensive play and defensive play. Thompson began his year with the Dragons, but was sent down to the Bisons for the beginning of the season, moving to Strathmore. Now, hes back living in Drumheller, and nds the transition from the AMHL to the AJHL quite easy. Its not too hard. They help out a lot because theyre always in good position, Thompson said. The guys are bigger, stronger, and a little bit faster. In junior, where players are up to 21-years-old, Thompson nds he doesnt have the same role he did with the midget Bisons. I play a lot of 5-on-5. With the Bisons, I played pretty much every role, he said. The Canmore native has certainly moved around for his hockey career; last season, with the help of his parents, Thompson drove two hours to and from practice before being billeted in Strathmore this year. I think Ive been doing that since peewee since there was never a team in Canmore, really, Thompson said. Thompson noted that playing with the Bow Valley Timberwolves in peewee was the highlight of his career so far; the team won back-to-back championships, only losing three times in two years. He wishes the Bisons could have had that same success. Its kind of hard because we all come from different areas, Thompson said. We play against each other our whole lives and then we come to midget and we all have to play together.

Former UFA Bison Tristan Thompson has jumped back up to the AJHL with the Drumheller Dragons, following the Bisons season. In four playoff games so far, Thompson has one goal and one assist.

Aryssah Stankevitsch Photo

The Red Deer Optimist Chiefs, who knocked the Bisons out of the playoffs, had more chemistry. In Red Deer, theyre all good. Theyve played together their whole lives the same systems and everything. Theyre just used to it, Thompson said. However, coming from different areas also had its benets, as Thompson said he will miss being billeted with his team. Its good, they treat you like their own kids, he said. Living (in Strathmore) was the best thing. We were all together. Its always a fun time with the guys. Thompson looks forward to having a strong season with the Drumheller Dragons next year, hoping to grow stronger and work on his defensive game. His hope is for an NCAA scholarship. Possibly for North Dakota, or maybe Boston College, he said.
