At the end of this year the current
contract arrangement for electricity
and natural gas with AMSC will ex-
pire. Back in May council authorized
administration to engage the servic-
es of Energy Associates Inc. to pro-
vide consulting services and work
with them towards the purchase of
electricity and natural gas in the up-
coming year.
A Request For Proposal (RFP) was
completed for both, separately. The
RFP for electricity closed on July 3,
and natural gas just closed on Oct.
16.
For the supply of electricity and
natural gas proposals were received
and for natural gas for a three year
term the prices ranged from $3.78
to $3.91 per gigajoule, said Mel Tie-
de, director of corporate services for
the town.
The town currently is paying $8.33
per gigajoule.
Based on an average years usage
the town will achieve an annual cost
reduction of $119,000 compared to
the current contractual rate, said
Tiede.
The savings for electricity were
$.0349 cents per kilowatt-hours,
which will save the town an estimat-
ed $215,000, bringing a combined
savings to the town of approximately
$334,000.
Tiede says it will be a savings for
all property tax payers, including
homeowners. The savings in electric-
ity and natural gas is one factor of
many that are contained within the
town budget, said Tiede.
The new contracts, which will
commence Jan. 1, 2014 are with Ac-
cess Gas for natural gas services and
with Enmax for electricity. Access
Gas is widely used in the province,
and both have been used by a num-
ber of other companies and were
recommended by the consultant.

Remembering fallen heroes
On Nov. 11 Remembrance Day ceremonies were held to honour our veterans. Every year following
the ceremony at the Civic Centre a second ceremony is held at the Field of Honour where some of
Strathmores fallen are buried.

The Chef program hosted
by the Youth Club of Strath-
more has been a resounding
success. The kids who par-
ticipate get a chance to learn
about cooking, measurements
and how to prepare a meal,
skills that are taught in a fun
group environment.
The programs continued
success is due in part to the
support from No Frills owner
Tina Shipley.
Tina has been one of our
longest and strongest sup-
porters. Her support provides
our youth the opportunity
to learn best practices, such
as utensil handling and op-
eration of appliances, kitch-
en hygiene, safe food prep
and handling, and nutritional
choices, said Program Coor-
dinator Colina Clark.
For our older youth pro-
gram (Create A Cook) this in-
cludes meal planning, budget-
ing, and smart shopping too.
Tinas support has allowed us
to deliver these programs to
our youth. All people need to
cook some time in their lives,
this provides a great place to
start with skill building to en-
courage further practice and
self-sufciency. Two of our
current youth participants,
both boys, have expressed in-
terest in pursuing the culinary
arts later in life.
Shipley supports many or-
ganizations and events in
Strathmore, always ready to
lend a hand wherever she
can.
This years sessions for the
Chef program are focused on
meals. This time of year sees
a lot of people baking, and so
the current session is Savoury
Sweets. The hope is that may-
be the participants will be en-
couraged to bake something
for the school bake sales, or
as treats for their families.
In January the theme is
Bountiful Breakfast. Often
time is limited on a school
morning so the goal is focus
on quick, yet healthy options
to begin the day.
Clubworks is a program that
offers a chance to try out a vari-
ety of programs that the Youth
Club offers over the course
of four weeks. Each night of
the session will consist of an
experiment, a recreational ac-
tivity, a chef creation and a
craft if time permits. Hussar is
next up to have the program
come to their community and
after the new year Clubworks
will be held in Gleichen and
Carseland. It will also be held
in Strathmore twice a year as a
way to highlight the programs
offered.
The Youth Club of Strath-
more is now a Town of Strath-
more organization. They
receive funding from Wheat-
land County for the Club-
works program, and the club
has built and created new
programs as they have grown
and based on the community
needs.

The Village of Hussar got a big boost at the end of October
when it was named the rst $50,000 prize winner in the UFA
Roots Up- Get n Give contest.
The Get n Give contest was looking for projects that en-
rich and support rural communities. Hussar made a video for
the contest where they sang about their need for 5 Million
Pennies to renovate their aging community hall. The village
provided a creative explanation of how the money would be
spent if they won.
We are overwhelmed by all of the entries, said Bob Nel-
son, president and CEO of UFA Co-operative Limited in a
press release. There are many deserving and heartfelt sto-
ries of what rural communities would do with $50,000 dol-
lars, but Hussar just went that extra mile. I think every per-
son in that whole village was singing in the video.
Our community hall is the cornerstone of our community.
It is necessary to maintain this gathering place as a way to
knit the past, present and future of our community together,
to keep us connected and remind us where we come from.
This money will help us achieve our goals and be a lasting
legacy for UFA in keeping rural Alberta strong, said Wendy
Kaiser, Hussar & District Hall Maintenance Society in the re-
lease.
Hussar was just one of 232 applicants for the contest.
UFA will be awarding ve $50,000 prizes to various projects
across the province. UFA announced the ve semi-nalists
and soon the village of Hussar will choose the next $50,0000
winner from the list of the nalists.
Its a pay-it-forward style contest, which is exactly what
the co-operative spirit is all about, said Nelson.
The ve communities running for second $50,000 giveaway
are: Beymoor - Sullivan Lake West Agriculture Society; Clive
- Neighbourhood Revitalization Group; Foremost - Foremost
Minor Hockey, Seniors and Legacy Bridge Committee; Hand
Hills - Hand Hills Lake Community Club; and Springdale -Lib-
erty Hall Society.
Applications will continue to be accepted for the remain-
ing $50,000 prizes. Creativity is important, so make a video,
use a photo collage, sing a song or write a compelling story
that details how $50,000 would benet your project. Rural
community groups who are located within 200km of a UFA
Farm & Ranch Supply store or Petroleum agency are wel-
come to enter. For more information, visit UFA.com/Getn-
Give. To view Hussars winning video go to https://www.

Each year we pin a red poppy to our
left lapel in a show of support for those
who have fought, and continue to ght,
for our freedom. Ceremonies take place
across the globe in honour of the Veter-
ans, and in Strathmore it was no differ-
ent. Each school does things in their own
way, differing from each other but similar
at the same time. All speak about what
Remembrance Day is, why it is important
and why we commemorate it each and
every year. There are often presentations
and speeches made and everyone takes a
moment to bow their head in silence and
remembrance.
At the Civic Centre hundreds of people
gathered to hear the ceremonies. The
names of those lost from the Strathmore
area were read aloud by George Free-
man as 903 Squadron air cadet members
pinned a poppy in remembrance of each.
This year the talk was about the veter-
ans from the Korean War and aboriginal
servicemen. Clarence Wolf Leg was asked
to speak on behalf of Siksika, and of his
time in the service.
Following the service the public was
invited to go to the Strathmore cemetery
and the Field of Honour where a nal
brief ceremony took place.
Each year more of our veterans are
passing away, and the stories they have
are often lost with them. We will remem-
ber those who are lost, but we must also
remember those who live on. One way to
do so is to take the time to go to the vet-
erans hospital in Calgary and listen to the
incredible stories the residents there can
share. Some may not share their tales of
the war, but just spending the time with
them is one easy way we can continu-
ously show our appreciation for all they
have done for us.
We will remember them.

SNOW CLEARING PREPARATION
As the Winter season draws closer, Public Works is preparing for Winter
Street Maintenance and is asking for residents assistance to familiarize
themselves with the Winter Street Maintenance policy. As per the policy,
snow plowing and then removal (as required) will be initiated in the following
sequence:
1. Essential services access
2. Priority 1 routes arterial routes
3. Priority 2 routes collector routes
4. School zones
5. Areas where trafc ow is impeded
6. Town parking lots
Attention will be given to removal of snow from the central business district
roadways after priority roadways have been plowed.
Wherever possible, the Town will take reasonable steps to notify citizens of
snow removal efforts, by placing signs indicating when removal is to occur.
Residents will have a minimum of 24 hours notice ahead of snow removal
activities to relocate vehicles. Vehicles remaining in the roadway when snow
removal activities are to occur will be ticketed and/or towed as per Bylaw

Town plowing is the responsibility of the owner to remove and will only be
removed by the Town when:
1. Natural ow of storm water is blocked

Boob Tour success
The magical moms hosted their third annual Boob Tour comedy show at the
Strathmore Civic Centre on Friday, Nov. 8. The moms were overwhelmed
by attendance this year, they were flled to capacity and raised approxi-
mately $8,000 through ticket sales, 50/50 tickets and the silent auction to
be donated to Relay for Life. The frst year they held the event they barely
broke even. The ladies are very passionate about their fundraising and work
endless hours making sure this event is a success. Gabriel Rutledge, a past
winner of the prestigious Seattle international Comedy Competition as well
as having made appearances on Comedy Centrals Live at Gotham, was the
headliner for the Boob Tour. Crowds were well entertained and very giving
with their generosity. Dallas Stickel (l-r) Shelly Neal, Amy Hampton and Patti

In 2012 the section of Hwy 1 running through Strathmore
had a reported 27 accidents, including three injury accidents.
At the beginning of 2013 council requested that administra-
tion look into the possibility of red light cameras or other
trafc safety measures that could help reduce the amount of
speeders and accidents on the highway.
Various options have been looked at and considered.
Some, like the one using a red light camera system, have
been dismissed at a provincial level, leaving the town to con-
tinue looking for a solution.
Chief Administrative Ofcer (CAO) Dwight Stanford has
been in touch with the Town of Coaldale about the possibil-
ity of purchasing their unused trafc equipment. On Nov. 6
Stanford informed council that Coaldale will not be selling
their equipment.
Now what were going to have to do is were going to
get portable equipment, then we should tender it out and
see what happens, said Stanford.
In addition to discussion with Coaldale, Stanford has also
been in talks with Michael Di Corpo, manager and director
of Engineering Information Group out of Montreal. Di Corpo
is willing to sell or lease portable equipment to the town.
The cost is in the $95,000 to $100,000 range.
With the equipment we would be able to use it on the
highway which is our big concernbut we could also take it
to various parts of town where people are speeding and pick
them up, said Stanford.
For safety reasons the town is also installing new signs on
the highway at both ends of town, on George Freeman Trail
and on Hwy 817. The 4x8 signs will inform truckers that they
cant use their jake brakes through town and will list the
bylaw number and the potential ne, which is $250.
The report from Stanford was accepted as information at
this time.

The food we eat has to be broken down into
simple substances the body can use. Carbohydrates
are broken down into simple sugars; proteins into
amino acids and fat into fatty acids. The fbre in
food is diffcult to digest so it gets passed through
for elimination via the colon. Weight-loss secret?
Eat less calories than you burn.
One of the problems with drug treatment of
malaria is the malaria parasite becomes resistant
to the drugs. One group of researchers is using
vitamin B-1 (thiamine) which the parasite needs for
energy to grow and multiply. The group is using
a molecule that looks like thiamine but isnt. The
mosquito takes this false thiamine into its body but
it wont work for them. It just might work.
A good motivator to get you walking for exercise
is to buy a pedometer. Set a beginning goal of 5000
steps per day and gradually work up to 10,000.
Theres something about having that little gismo
that keeps people walking.
Just a reminder that when you are treating your
children for a cough, codeine-containing products
are no longer recommended for children under the
age of 12. This Health Canada directive came as a
result some children receiving codeine either via
a cough syrup or breast milk. Codeine is metabo-
lized in the body to morphine and some people are

If you are looking for cough remedies for your
child, you can try some honey frst. That often
soothes the throat and calms the cough. You can
also check with our pharmacists for other sugges-

55 GAMES
The Town of Strathmore will be hosting the 55 Plus Sum-
mer Games in 2015. A 16-person board is required to plan,
co-ordinate and implement the games. The nal two people
were appointed to the board of directors at the Nov. 6 coun-
cil meeting. Karen Binns was appointed to director of guest
and community programs and Grace Shouten is the director
of promotions. Councillor Denise Peterson asked that a let-
ter be sent to the chair Donalda Ledene thanking her for her
work on putting the committee together.
YOUTH CLUB OF STRATHMORE
Councillor Pat Fule spoke about the Youth Club of Strath-
more in his committee reports. He said the club has had
complaints come in to the licensing department regarding
the After the Bell program. Fule said it is a structured after
school program for homework and has a recreational com-
ponent. The Youth Club is not required to have a license for
this and they have been in regular contact with the licensing
department.

Strathmore Legion #10 President Jenny Schumann has fun taking photos
during the dinner and a musical matinee called the Scuttlebutt Canteen on
Nov. 9 at the Legion. About 100 veterans and guests enjoyed the show, writ-
ten by P. Gail Whiteford and presented by Aspen Crossing Dinner Theatre.
The play was based on wartime england in June 1943. A great time was had
by all, with lots of laughter and singing of old time music from the 1940s.
Scuttlebutt fun
PAT FULE
Fule for Thought
As I was chewing gum the other day, I started to think
about dumb things. Let me rst explain a fun, dumb
thing about me. I cant chew gum. I mean I can chew
gum, but when the avor is at its peak, I swallow it. Im
always amazed and impressed by people who can chew
the same piece of gum for hours. I mean, doesnt it taste
like sweaty rubber by then? I know, I know youre
probably saying that swallowing gum is bad for you,
and that it wont be able to be digested by the stomach.
However, I gure if you can eat a Big Mac, large fries,
and a large Coke, surely one little piece of gum cant re-
ally be a problem, can it? My kids wont even offer me a
piece of gum anymore, because they know Im going to
swallow it! Its like theyre running their own interven-
tion for me! So while I was thinking of how dumb it is
not to be able to chew gum, other things of dumbness
came to me (is that even a word?).
I had two friends in Canmore High School (I know,
I know, youre probably saying thats double what you
have now). These two friends on separate occasions,
did really dumb things at high school dances. The rst
guy was my pal Dan (fake name). He was the princi-
pals son, and he and another guy decided theyd go
down to the river and drink a mixture of Tang (do they
still make that?), river water, and gin. Now that is not
the best of combinations for any occasion, but before a
high school dance as the principals son, and a supper
of moms good old fashioned spaghetti, it was a recipe
for disaster! I can still recall Dan dancing away with
some poor girl, while his heaves began. He looked
happy, sad, perplexed, then panicky all in seconds.
Im glad I was out of the splash zone she sadly
wasnt. Another pal and I had to drag, shufe, and push
Dan home. At rst the principal thought I had been a
part of this, but I was innocent. I knew Dan would be
in big trouble, but then I thought about that poor girl
who had to wear Dans supper she never knew what
hit her. I wonder if she hates spaghetti as much as Dan
does now?
John was another victim of the age-old and dumb
practice, tried by many high school guys.
Lets drink as much as we can as fast as we can, then
get into the dance, and have a real blast!
Youd think after many generations, guys would learn
but we dont. Anyway, Ill try to be as delicate as I
can (and this is where I rst began to think teachers
sometimes had it very rough). My favourite teacher (the
one who inspired me to become one and the one I
also now blame) found John in the bathroom. While sit-
ting on the throne for a poo, John had also thrown up,
then passed out with his pants and shorts around his
ankles. As a young teacher, how do you prepare your-
self for this?! Mr. D (the real one) had to get some more
pals, help John get his pants on, and get him all the way
back home up Hospital Hill (thats the hill we all raced
down on bikes with no braking really shouldve used
those more). Johns mom and dad were very strict Euro-
pean parents I knew anything the school did would
not come close to what hed face in the morning!
One bitterly cold night in January, my pals and I de-
cided to walk from a party, trek across the school eld,
and get a pizza. It was one of those clear mountain
nights, where you could see ice crystals, and everything
was brittle and freezing! As we got to the pizza place
downtown, I looked back, and there was no Mack.
Hey you guys, Macks not here, I said. They all
laughed it off (some were pretty bombed) and said hed
probably gone home. I dont know why it struck us, but
my other friend and I decided to re-trace our path look-
ing for Mack. As we nally got to the darkened eld,
we saw him. He was still plastered, and was asleep
on his back. There below us was the evidence of where
hed been. The poor, drunken schmuck (kind of like
Rob Ford), had decided to make a snow angel and fell
asleep! This actually hit Kirk and I pretty hard, because
we knew what might have happened if we hadnt come
back. So once again, another pal bit the dust, only
this one could have been tragic. We got him home after
walking and dragging him a few blocks, while he told
us we were the best and I love you guys! Ah the 70s
a time where we were trying our best to test the rules
to have fun and to boldly hurl, where no kid had
hurled before!
Dumb Da Dumb Dumb
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
To the Editor
We attended the Remembrance Day service at the
Civic Center. It appeared to be a very nice service
paying respect to and honouring our veterans those
with us and those who have gone before.
We were seated in the back one-third of the audi-
ence and so were unable to hear a lot of the program,
especially the speech by Clarence Wolf Leg. We know
we missed it because we could hear the people near
the front of the audience laugh at some of his com-
ments.
If more than half of the large group that attended
the service feel left out of the proceedings, they may
start to wonder why did we come?
The problem was the delivery of sound to the
whole auditorium. If the Legion supplied their own
sound system, please accept this letter as notice
that your system was inadequate. If the Civic Center
sound system was used, then this letter is notice to
the town that the system was not working as we be-
lieve it should to serve a large crowd. It may be time
to budget for a sound system overhaul to better serve
the facility users.
To our veterans we salute you. We will remember
you.

FROM THE OFFICES
OF KEVIN SORENSON
Kevin Sorenson, Member
of Parliament for Crowfoot,
is inviting local employers
to apply for funding through
the Canada Summer Jobs
program 2014 to help create
jobs for students next sum-
mer.
Every year, we try to fo-
cus on local priorities, while
achieving tangible results for
both students and their com-
munities through this feder-
al initiative, says Sorenson.
It works in local economies
throughout our large riding.
The Canada Summer Jobs
initiative provides funding to
not-for-prot, public-sector
and small private-sector em-
ployers with 50 or fewer em-
ployees. It creates summer
job opportunities for young
people 15 to 30 years of age
who are full-time students
intending to return to their
studies in the next school
year.
Employers can apply on-
line at www.servicecanada.
gc.ca/csj2014 or print an ap-
plication from the website.
They can also get an applica-
tion by visiting any Service
Canada Centre. Please note
that the period to apply for
Canada Summer Jobs 2014
will be from Dec. 2 to Jan.
10, 2014. These new dates
will allow employers to be
notied of their application
status earlier.
Not-for-prot organiza-
tions, public-sector employ-
ers, and small businesses
create these high-quality
summer job opportunities
for young people aged 15 to
30 years. These full-time stu-
dents who intend to return
to their studies in the next
school year can return home
for the summer months
and have a summer job. This
is important to families in
our riding and across Cana-
da, Sorenson concludes.

Early Childhood Committee

November 20, 2013 marks National
Child Day in Canada. What is National
Child Day? Its a special day to remem-
ber two historic events: the 1959 sign-
ing by Canada of the United Nations
Declaration of the Rights of the Child;
and the adoption of the UN Convention
on the Rights of the Child in 1989. Most
importantly, its a day to remember that
children need support, encouragement
and respect to grow to their full poten-
tial and that we each have a part to
play.
This year we celebrate Article 12 of
the United Nations Convention on the
Rights of the Child based on the thme
lts our right to be heard
Did you know :
One in four children in Canada, not
including those diagnosed with severe
disabilities, struggle with basic age ap-
propriate tasks such as holding a pencil,
following simple instructions and get-
ting along with other children.
In Alberta, more than 22 per cent of
young children experience difculty in
language and thinking skills and more
than 29 per cent in communication
skills and general knowledge.
The brain grown and changes more
in the rst three to ve years of life
than at any other time, tripling in size
by the age of three. Brain development
involves much more than intellectual
ability, but includes emotional, social,
physical and thinking abilities (ECMap,
2013).

A Weekend at Bernies style comedy
is coming to Strathmore High School on
Nov. 21. Its Murder in the Wings is a
comedy written by Pat Cook that is set
in the Wings Publishing Companys Of-
ce. Business has been dwindling for
the company over the last few years and
they are trying to sign Lionel Upshaw,
an eccentric big name writer, and his
new title Done in.
They are trying to get him to sign
the contract and they are planning a big
party in honour of him. The day of the
party they discover that the owner of
the company, Mr. Moon, is actually dead
in his ofce, said Drama/Dance teacher
Paula Richardson.
Richardson said the staff at Wings de-
cide not to tell the guests that the host
has died just yet, at least not until the
contract is signed because its needed
to save the company. Moon is in his of-
ce and Wings staff members Maddie,
Tyrolia, Kitty and Doris decide they are
going to pretend that Moon is dead in
an effort to promote the new play by
Upshaw. Everyone else at the contract
signing party has to solve the murder
of Moon.
This script was actually chosen by
the students. I gave them two to read
and then we decided which one we
though suited the students better, said
Richardson.
This one is a bit shorter and worked
a bit better with the time constraints.
They have been busy rehearsing for al-
most 13 weeks.
The students found their own cos-
tumes on a eld trip to Value Village
and the Strathmore Theatre Players lent
the cast set pieces, which Richardson
said is always welcome.
I think it is going to be a lot of fun,
said Richardson.
I like the fact that it has really strong
female roles. I like characters that stu-
dents can be successful portraying and
as much as I like students to dig into
a character its also very benecial, es-
pecially for new actors, to have some
stock character to play and theres some
stock characters in this.
Its murder at Strathmore High School
She said there is the has-been big ac-
tress who is now a caterer, the greasy
janitor, the southern belle who is actu-
ally Mr. Moons intended but nobody
knew he was engaged when she sud-
denly shows up.
Theres lots of little twists and hope-
fully the audience is kept guessing as to
who the murderer really is, said Rich-
ardson.
Its Murder in the Wings will be on
the Strathmore High School stage Nov.
21 to 24 nightly at 7 p.m.. Tickets are
$10 each and can be purchased at the
door, or in advance by calling the school
at 403-934-3135.

The June oods impacted many communities
across Southern Alberta, and though it has been
almost ve months since the ood, many are still
rebuilding.
On Nov. 6 the Alberta Government signed a
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Sik-
sika Nation. The MOU formally outlines a com-
mitment to see the homes rebuilt and/or repaired.
Our government through the leadership of
Premier Redford has been on the ground work-
ing with Siksika Nation since the rst days of the
ood. The MOU will allow us to move forward
together with Siksika Nation on rebuilding efforts
by achieving provincial safety and construction
standards for the Nations infrastructure and hous-
ing, said Robin Campbell, Minister of Aboriginal
Relations in a press release.
The MOU gives a formal understanding that the
Alberta Government will work with Siksika to en-
sure the community is restored to a functioning
community in a way that is fair and equitable with
other Alberta communities.
The MOU also includes the commitment to train
people from Siksika Nation, giving them the op-
portunity to learn skills that will help the labour
force in their rebuilding efforts. The MOU further
details how the government and Siksika will work
together while clarifying their respective roles and
responsibilities.
Siksika First Nation had unprecedented dam-
ages caused by the ood but the community has
shown unwavering resilience. While there are
many challenges, there is also opportunity, said
Minister of Human Services Dave Hancock in the
same press release.
Our investment in the training to employment
program will provide Siksika First Nation mem-
bers the opportunity to develop skills that will
benet their community and their personal em-

News has come to us of the death of Clement W. Hall who has been reported missing since September 16, 1943. His
parents received word recently through the International Red Cross that he had given his life in one of those devastating
raids over Germany.
A letter, recently received by his mother from his brother, P/O Alfred Hall, also serving overseas, expresses the lofy
idealism which inspires many of our Empire fiers. He writes as follows:
Dear Mum:
It is so very difcult to put on paper my thoughts for you at this time. If I could only tell you
just how we feel just how we look at those things ourselves how Tubby felt and is feeling
now. You see, Mum, we are not afraid of these things happening to us. If we did we should
not be wearing this uniform. We are proud and very glad that we had a mother and a father
who taught us unselfshly to risk our lives to maintain what we were always taught to believe.
Tere are many I knew personally who like Tubby have had to pay what you might think
a costly price but neither he nor we think it so, provided that our parents, sisters, wives,
children and sweethearts may be free. Should our freedom or our lives be forfeited, we care
not. We are not callous not lacking in feeling. We just know that that price may be demanded
of us at any time. We know that every time we fy. We know it, but we still fy and always
will. We know also that every life or temporary freedom that is lost is balanced on the scale
that even now is turning in our favour. We do not write nor talk propaganda but we all know
that the enemy shall be beaten We hold nothing against our opponents but we shall not and
will not accept his beliefs nor his teachings. If we become afraid or lose faith in the principles
that we were taught by our parents, even to doubt them for a moment, then we have lost the
war, no matter what the geographical or economic outcome may be. But above all, should we
or you, our loved ones, ever begin to hate our foes than all is lost. For the hymn of hate is
his. It has been taught by him by his folks. He is a courageous foe but so stupidly blinded by
hatred that he cannot see that even if he should be able to conquer the world he has lost. Tat
is why `Tubby` and all those with him can still smile and pity those people who even though
they become masters of the world, can never be free of themselves.
`Tubby may only be parted from us for a short time. He may be away from us even for a
little longer time, but always remember, Mum dear, that tho not in fesh perhaps, in spirit al-
ways he fies with us and always will. And that if he had to pay the fnal price, he did not die.
He only went to join another squadron a squadron made up of only the brave, which only
the brave can join, whose Squadron Leader is God and whose home base is Heaven. Now it
is true that all around this base it is a 10/10 cloud, and the ceiling is zero, but even from afar
he was able to see the beacon, and when he was lined up with the farepath, though dark the
night may have been, he knew where he was going, and he smiled. He smiled, because he
knew that he was going into home base, to the only home we shall ever know in the skies, and
at least through difculties he reached the stars.
And, Mum, youe son had earned his wings with the squadron of the brave, the squadron of
his God. I cannot say more, but as I close, all my love, and remember that --- Only the brave
can join
Goodnight, Mum.

The Donald McKinnon family arrived in
Ontario from Tiree, a small island on the
west coast of Scotland in 1847. In 1886,
grandson Lachlin McKinnon took the CPR
train from Priceville, Ont. to the end of the
line at Calgary.
Here he got a job with General Strange at
the M.C.C. (Military Colonization Company)
just east of what is now Carseland.
Keith McKinnon was a grandson of Lach-
lin, and was born in Majorville (east of
Milo). His dad was working at the
XL Ranch at the time. This was
part of the LK Ranch and Farm-
ing Co., which was family owned.
His parents, Don and Kay, moved
from Majorville to Carseland in
1932, and formed one of the ear-
liest family farming companies,
Kenwynn Farms Ltd in 1950.
They later moved to Calgary in
1957, where Don established
McKinnon Farm and Ranch Man-
agement, a consulting rm.
Keith attended school at Carse-
land, until Grade 12, followed by
two years at both Olds Agricultur-
al College and SAIT. Following graduation
he returned to the family farm, just east of
Carseland.
Muriels grandparents on her mothers
side, Leslie and Jane (Warrack) McKenzie
moved to Spokane, Wash. in 1910, then to
Alberta in 1912, from Fintray, a village just
north of Aberdeen, Scotland. Her father
Fred Reasbeck, was born in Vankleek Hill,
Ont. and came west to Alberta in 1919, to
visit his brother, but stayed to work for a lo-
cal farmer, north of Lyalta. After 10 years, he
was able to purchase some land of his own
in the same area, from the CPR. He married
Jessie McKenzie in 1936. This marriage pro-
duced two children Muriel born in 1937,
and Gerald born in 1941. Muriel attended
a one teacher, one room country school
called Bryn Mawr through Grade 7, before
being bused to Strathmore High School.
She then attended the University of Calgary
where she attained her teachers certicate,
and returned to Carseland, where she was
hired to teach Grade 3 and 4.
She and Keith met at a dance, and they
were married at Scarboro United Church in
Calgary in July 1958. They had to arrange
for the wedding to take place between
spring seeding and harvest time!
This marriage produced two sons, Wayne
whose wife is Allison, and Brian married to
Teri. There are now six grandchil-
dren Lachie, Jordan, Kyle, Sarah,
Kate and Connor.
The original McKinnon house
at Carseland, is now located just
north of Strathmore Municipal Li-
brary, and belongs to Gene and
Elizabeth Struiksma.
Maarten Hoogesteger, Eliza-
beths father, moved the house
from Kenwynn Farms to its cur-
rent location in 1967. Muriels
brother, Gerald, is retired from
the Canadian Food Inspection
Agency, part of the Federal Gov-
ernment in Ottawa. His wife, Lin-
da, was head of the Home Economics De-
partment at Kemptville Agricultural College.
Over the years, the family continued to
grain farm and increase their cattle opera-
tions. In 1970, they were among the rst
to import Limousin bulls and heifers from
France. This was followed by more females
in the following years. Kenwynn Farms rep-
utation continued to grow, and soon they
were exporting cattle and embryos around
the world. In 1987, they established the rst
two-year-old Limousin bull sale at High Riv-
er. Since then, the focus has changed from
purebred and commercial cattle to a custom
feedlot and more intensive grain farming.
There was an old gravel pit on Kenwynn
Farms, and around 1997 they were ap-
proached by a golf course developer, who
wished to purchase this area. After much
discussion, Kenwynn Farms sold the land to
the developer, and the result is the beauti-
ful Speargrass Golf Course and residential
development overlooking the Bow River
valley.
Keith and Muriel enjoyed volunteer work.
He started as a Charter Member of the
Carseland Lions Club, leader of the Carse-
land 4H Beef and Heifer Club, Master of
both Strathmore Masonic Clubs, Chairman
of Strathmore & District Recreation Board,
and President of Strathmore Minor hockey.
He was a long time volunteer with the Cal-
gary Exhibition and Stampede, where he
served as a Director, then President in 1991
and 1992. He was also a Director of the
Western Heritage Centre, President of the
Stockmans Memorial Foundation, member
of the Board of Governors at Olds College,
and worked with the Ranch Rodeo at High-
wood Museum and Western Stock Growers.
For Keith and Muriels 25th Wedding An-
niversary, their two sons and families pre-
sented them with an all expenses paid trip
to Scotland and England, where they visit-
ed their ancestral roots, and found time to
check out a few Limousin herds.
Sadly Keith passed away in 2001.
Muriel taught Sunday School in Carseland,
was a member of UCW and the Public Ben-
et Club, worked on the two Carseland his-
tory books Trails to The Bow and More
Trails to The Bow, and for seven years
wrote the hockey news for the Strathmore
Standard. This was while their two sons
played in the Bantam, Midget and Juvenile
divisions. Additionally, she has found time
for genealogy, where she has researched
ve lines of her family. In recent years, she
has enjoyed working at the Strathmore Unit-
ed Church Thrift Sale in April and October.
Nowadays, Muriel has acquired the travel
bug. She has visited 18 countries on four
continents, and will soon leave on a trip to
Chile and Argentina.

The Strathmore Municipal Library
is always looking to nd new ways to
bring fun, new programs to the commu-
nity at no charge. One such program,
Crafternoons, began on Oct. 28. The
library has found, through annual sur-
veys and through customer comments,
that people are looking for something
to do with their kids after school.
Crafternoons will run every Monday
from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the library. All
supplies are provided and it is a free
drop-in program. Each week a different
staff member at the library will plan a
theme the kids can craft on. The pro-
gram is available for those in Grade 1
to 6.
That is the age group that a lot of
parents are looking for things for their
kids to do after school. The teenagers
usually have things that they do after
school and they are quite busy, said
Assistant Director of Library Services
Carmen Erison.
They will be able to create all sorts
of fun, lovely crafts that they will be
able to take home for themselves.
On Nov. 7 the library started anoth-
er drop-in program also targeted at
Grades 1 to 6. Homework Help is ev-
ery Thursday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The
library has offered the program in the
past, and it was something they wanted
to revive. Erison said there has been
an increase in private tutoring in the
library and so they hope now is a good
time to bring it back
They can come to the library for free
homework help and we have a lovely
volunteer who is a retired teacher who
will be here to help the kids, said Eri-
son.
For both of these programs we are
still looking for volunteers so if you en-
joy working with kids and you want to
help out at the library, contact the li-
brary and we will get you set up.
In addition to the new programs the
library also has two events coming up.
This Saturday, Nov. 16 is the Christmas
Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We will have vendors here from all
walks of life, from artists to crafters,
bakers, as well as some home busi-
nesses. Stop on in that day and get a
jump start on your holiday shopping
and help support the library, said Eri-
son.
The craft fair will feature 15 vendors
who will adorn the meeting room and
the lobby of the library building. The
fair is a great way to fundraise for the
library and there is an agreement with
each of the vendors that they must do-
nate an item to the library that will be
put up for auction in December.
On Nov. 22 the best book deal in
town will be happening.
We have a large collection of books
for sale this round. We have been ex-
tensively weeding our collection, said
Erison.
There will be a large collection of
cookbooks, young adult books, child-
rens books and more. Erison says it will
be the best bargain in town: .50 cents
per item or three for $1.
The money thats raised from the
book sale always goes to help increase
programs and services at the library,
said Erison.
Come ll your bags.
The book sale will run from noon un-
til 7 p.m. on Nov. 22, and from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. on Nov. 23.

Preparing
for the future
SHARON MCLEAY
Times Contributor

In ancient times the end of harvest
and winter snows brought a time to re-
evaluate issues and fears surrounding
life and death. It still remains a topic
today, and is something that should be
discussed with loved ones. Part of that
discussion can include wishes regarding
organ or tissue donation.
I think it should be part of our cul-
ture, in the same way as our DNR (do
not resuscitate) orders are discussed,
said Dr. Andreas Kramer, the Director for
the Southern Alberta Organ and Tissue
Donation program
Organs that are donated usually come
from people who have died through
brain trauma or stroke. Brain death is
dened as the complete and irreversible
cessation of all brain activity (in the ce-
rebrum, cerebellum and brain stem). Pa-
tients go through a series of neurologi-
cal tests to conrm brain death.
In Alberta, organs are harvested from
brain dead patients. Tissue donation
can be done after the heart and lungs
stop working and death occurs. There
are over 700 people in Alberta waiting
for organ transplants and many others
whose lives could be improved by tis-
sue donation. There are two centres in
Alberta, one in Calgary and the other
in Edmonton. The programs deal with
organ donation, ocular tissue donation
which includes eyes, and non-ocular tis-
sue donation, which includes skin, heart
valves, and bone.
There are a lot of people who are on
liver and kidney transplant list not get-
ting organs and to a lesser extent heart
and lungs. There continues to be a pretty
large discrepancy for the need for organs
and the availability of organs. The main
message is the number of people that
are being helped by that process (or-
gan donation). An organ donor can save
lives, or radically impact or save the lives
of seven or eight individuals and a tissue
donor can help up to 50 people, said
Kramer. The shortages in tissue dona-
tion are not as much of a crisis as organ
donations, but we certainly have a long
list of people waiting for cornea trans-
plants and in Alberta. We have recently
had to purchase them from elsewhere
because our own supply isnt large
enough to meet our demand. Increas-
ingly people need cartilage transplants
for their knee or one of their joints.
In Alberta, organ donations have de-
clined. On Oct. 28 of this year, Kramer
and some of his peers released the re-
sults of a study on brain death, which
was investigated in Edmonton over a
ten year period. The study concluded
the instances of brain injured patients
experiencing neurological death was de-
clining. Modern road safety measures,
protective equipment and safe practises
in recreational activities and improved
pre-hospital and in-hospital care have
had an effect. The doctors encouraged
continued promotion of these measures
to save lives.
The study is denitely good news for
all Albertans, but the ip side of the is-
sue is there are less organs being har-
vested to save those who need them.
The other problem is not all organs or
tissues are suitable for donations.
It is a major concern for us; unfortu-
nately, we do have to be restrictive and
so just because somebody wants to be
a tissue donor and they have made that

clear to their loved ones before they die,
they may not be able to be a tissue donor
for exactly those reasons. It is all careful-
ly screened after they die, to see if they
can be a candidate or not. We adhere,
in Calgary, just like in other centres, to
guidelines put out by Health Canada and
the Academy of Tissue Banks and Eye
Banks, said Kramer.
He said that those who do qualify for
donation are treated in the same manner
as other patients; everyone gets the best
care possible to ensure they recover. If
there are no other options left, then fam-
ilies may be approached.
Before we recover organs or tissue,
we require informed consent. People can
say no and they should have the right to
say no. We try our best to invite them to
have an open mind and take a little time
to discuss it. We often arrange to have
one of their faith leaders involved in the
discussion, said Kramer. The scenario
where someone might have checked off
the back of their license, or expressed
that they would like to be a donor, and
the family comes back and disagrees,
that does not happen very often. People
have the misconception that it is an is-
sue. More often we have families that
have never talked about it and dont
know what the person wanted.
There are some measures being taken
in Alberta to improve donation numbers.
One is a provincial donation registry
where permission is given when licenses
are issued. Bill 207 in the Provincial leg-
islature for the registry has passed sec-
ond reading. The second measure that is
gaining success is live organ donation,
where a person chooses to donate a kid-
ney, part of their liver or stem cells to
those in need.
One success story is the rates of kid-
ney donation have gone up, and the rea-
son we have seen them go up is we are
getting more living donors than usual.
Those who want to give one of their
kidneys to someone, said Kramer. You
only need one of your kidneys. Kidney
donors do well. It is rare for them to de-
velop kidney problems down the road.
Kramer said the consequences of live
donation do need to be considered, as
there are some surgical risks and consid-
erations about possible injury through
trauma down the road. He said there is
some work being done to improve vi-
ability of organs outside the body, where
organs can be maintained and revital-
ized through mechanical means and he
expects future developments in the tech-
nology will be promising.

Seventy-ve people celebrated Rose-
bud Lions Clubs 60th anniversary at a
banquet in Rosebuds Encana Centre on
Nov. 9. The crowd included 20 members
and spouses, as well as prospective lo-
cal members, and practicing Lions from
Rockyford, Standard and Strathmore.
Three of six surviving charter members
George Comstock, Bob Comstock and
Bob Hymas were also present.
Rod Hymas Bob Hymas son and a
long-standing member made a toast
in honour of the charter members. Hy-
mas senior gave the reply. George Com-
stock, the only charter member who
maintained active membership for all
60 years, presented a brief history of
the club. Peter Lauridsen, current presi-
dent, also shared club memories.
District Governor Bill Baux, the
guest speaker, spoke about Lions work
around the world. Laurisden said, and
that tens of millions of people are able
to see now, because Lions have provid-
ed cataract surgery and treatment for of
river-blindness.
Eyesight is a big part of what Lions
do, Laurisden said, and Baux empha-
sized the need for the work to contin-
ue. He also encouraged the group to
continue to work to recruit people and
build our clubs, and make sure theyre
strong going forward.
The Rosebud Lions Club began Oct.
15, 1953, with the election of nine of-
cers, including Robert Heberling as
president, and a total of 51 members.
In their rst two years, Rosebud Lions
prepared the site for a public park at
the Severn Creek Dam, and held a coy-
ote hunt. They sponsored 4-H club ban-
quets and took on the annual task of
ooding the community skating rink.
In those early years, they began host-
ing community events like wrestling
matches, community dances, pancake
suppers and sports days. Other early
projects included maintaining public
parks, building a kitchen shelter for the
ball diamond, hosting exchange stu-
dents, and organizing a Stop Smoking
campaign.
In the 1960s, they acquired land and a
building for the Rosebud Museum, and
in recent years, Lions did a lot of work
on the museum expansion, Laurisden
said.
Lion volunteers also played a role
in the construction of the re hall, and
most recently, they contributed sig-
nicantly to getting the elevator in the
Community Centre. Numerous times
over the years, Lions have upgraded
and renovated the Rosebud Community
Hall.
In addition to restoring and protect-
ing eyesight around the world, they
also step in when theres natural disas-
ters, Laurisden said. There was a big
one-time contribution they made to the
ood relief in Alberta here earlier in the
year. And theyre certainly working now
to assist people in the Philippines with
that horrible disaster.
Rosebud Lions hold regular fundrais-
ers to support these causes.
We have a golf tournament and an
auction, late summer, and thats our
biggest fundraiser of the year, Lauris-
den said. Then we have a Vegas Night,
which is a fun kind of card night, earlier
in the year.
The club has occasional, smaller fun-
draisers as well.
Rosebud Lions welcome all local men
and women as members. If youre a
Rosebud resident who wants to serve
your community through the Lions,
contact Peter Laurisden at (403) 677-
2378 or speak to any local Lion. Learn

Every Saturday at the Chinook Cen-
tre, the Calgary Special Olympics runs
their bowling league. On Oct. 26,
Strathmores Russell Hiller broke re-
cords by bowling six strikes in a row.
Four more strikes, and Hiller could
have been awarded $1,000.
Maybe one day, said Hillers helper,
Donald Beringer. The week before, he
got four in a row. Hes getting better
all the time.
Hillers ve-pin season with the Cal-
gary Special Olympics runs from Octo-
ber to March, including tournaments to
other cities.
Every year, they have a couple tour-
naments, Beringer said. They pick all
the top ones at the end of the year, and
then they get to travel, to provincials
and whatever tournaments.
Beringer has been assisting Hiller
since 2000, and together they practice
bowling on Hillers wii console which
is fairly accurate with regular bowling.
Hiller used to practice at Strath-
mores bowling alley before it closed
down.
Now he does the wii, he practices
everyday, Beringer said.
With the new sport one, its got 100
pins. Its really cool, Beringer said.

Defending champion of the Canadian
Finals Rodeo, Strathmores Scott Schiff-
ner placed second in bull riding at this
years event, in Edmonton at Rexall
Place. His total earnings for the season
were $55,304.39, just behind champion
Chad Besplug.
It was a good week, Schiffner said,
of the Nov. 6-10 competition. I got
bucked off two bulls, one I denitely
shouldnt have and it probably cost
me winning Canada, but through and
through it was alright.
Schiffner has competed at the Cal-
gary Stampede 11 times, and won in
2011. For the Professional Bull Riding
World Championship, hes reached the
nal on three occasions. Schiffner also
won the Canadian Finals in 2001, and
called the competition like the Stanley
Cup playoffs.
All our money that we won through-
out the season, we carried into the -
nals, he said. Now that its all over,
we carry the money that we won at the
nals to our regular season earnings,
and thats how they declare the Cana-
dian champ.
Schiffner was pleased with his year,
even with attending less rodeos than
usual this season. The sting of silver
still hurts, however.
I was pretty happy, he said. I wish
I could have done a little better obvi-
ously to win a third Canadian title but
everyone says winning second is good
I look at it as second is always rst
loser.
As the last rodeo of the year, Schiffner
will have a couple months off; the new
season begins in 2014. In the offseason,
he plans to prepare hard in Strathmore.
Just how I always do, he said. We
have a ranch; Im going to go home and
work there, riding horses lots and cow-
boying. Keep in shape and go for next
year.

Last year, at the rugby CIS nals,
Strathmores Elizabeth Steele and the
University of Alberta Pandas lost to the
University of Guelph Gryphons, for a
third place nish. On Nov. 3, the third-
seeded Pandas earned their redemp-
tion, beating Guelph for CIS gold, 29-10
in Laval, QC.
A graduate of Strathmore High
School in 2011, the 20-year-old science
student is in her third season of eligibil-
ity. Steeles Pandas were 4-0 this sea-
son, and won their second consecutive
Canada West nal against the Univer-
sity of Calgary Dinos on Oct. 20 to earn
a berth in CIS.
We did have a very mature team
this year, Steele said, of her many fth
and sixth year teammates. Im in the
middle of my career, just going over the
hill, but we didnt have as many rookies
this year. A lot of maturity.
Steele, who usually plays second row
or back row, feels this level of expe-
rience assisted the team in capturing
the teams rst national championship
since 2003.
I denitely think it helped us a lot,
weve all played together for a number
of years now, so weve gelled, she said.
For 2014, 10 senior players will be
leaving the 32-player roster. A repeat
will be difcult, but is doable.
Next year, the dynamic is denitely
going to be a lot different. We also had
a lot of depth on our team; you could
make substitutions, and you wouldnt
notice a difference on the eld, Steele
said. We still have a lot of mature play-
ers a lot of girls in my year, and we
also have injured players coming back
who can play again. Itll change, but
since weve seen what it takes to get to
CIS, and have tasted winning it before,
I think well still be able to have that
drive and want it.
Steeles father, Brad Steele, started
her in the sport at age 12. She went on
to play for Strathmore High School, and
this year was named to Rugby Albertas
U23 team.
There are good leaders in Strath-
more for rugby, she said of her father
Brad, Jerry Flaws, and Kyle Larson at
Strathmore High School. The rugby
community in Strathmore isnt very big,
its harder to travel to Calgary to play.
The high school has done a really good
job of promoting it; I think it has the
most number of people on the teams
out of all the sports.

Strathmores own Scott Schiffner fnished in second place at the Canadian Final Rodeo Nov. 6-10 in

The bantam AA Wheatland Warriors
were 13-0 on Nov. 8, after beating the
Cranbrook Hornets at home 7-3. Two
days later, however, they suffered their
rst loss of the season, 4-3 against the
Foothills Bisons at the Strathmore Family
Centre.
The kids werent very happy about
it, said bantam coach Mark Laycock. It
stings a little bit, right? The kids were all
pretty excited because we were still un-
defeated but the rst loss always hurts.
Against Cranbrook, Kyle Merkosky had
a ve point night, including a hat trick
he now has 28 points in 14 games, plac-
ing him third in league scoring. Lucas
Muenchrath added three points in the
victory; the Warriors had 46 shots on net,
and only 23 against them.
The Warriors were down 4-2 in the
third period against the Bisons, and man-
aged to make it 4-3 with ve minutes re-
maining but could not pull off the tie,
or victory.
Weve told them, weve got to move
past that. We dont have to worry about
an undefeated season now, and keep go-
ing in the direction weve been going so
far this year, Laycock said.
The Warriors are 13-1, and have the
most goals for in the league with 88;
Cranbrook is second with 75.
The peewee Wheatland Braves tied the
Okotoks Oilers at home on Nov. 10, 4-4.
A back and forth game, the Braves were
leading 4-2 at one point in the third; the
Oilers tied it up with 26 seconds to go.
The Braves sit 5-7-2, with Tarun Fizer
leading the way with 23 points in 14
games including two goals in the tie.
The Red Deer Elks suffered a 7-1 beat-
ing by the hands of the midget Wheat-
land Chiefs on Nov. 9, who were two
for ve on the powerplay. Cody Willis
contributed one goal and three assists;
Colton Herman had two goals and one
assist. Both boys have 15 points in eight
games. The Chiefs are 6-1-1 in the North
Division.

For the second season in a row, the Strathmore
High School (SHS) Spartans varsity girls volleyball
team were awarded silver in the league champi-
onship, falling to Okotoks Holy Trinity Academy
(HTA) in four sets on Nov. 7: 25-18, 21-25, 25-11,
25-16.
SHS had lost to HTA at home in season play on
Oct. 21, by the same score, but with closer sets (25-
22, 25-223, 22-25, 26-24). This is the Holy Trinity
Academy Knights rst league gold.
We earned a silver, Spartans girls Coach Ran-
dy Moncks said. We just didnt have much ow. I
thought after the second game we won the sec-
ond set we played well, we played aggressively
against them. Then the third set, we struggled. We
just couldnt run our offense like we had to. That
was too bad.
A regular starter for the Spartan sprained her an-
kle in practice two days before the game, leading
Moncks to switch up his lines.
It wasnt quite the same. We tried some differ-
ent combinations, and it didnt quite work. We just
made too many mistakes at the wrong time. We
struggled a little bit, he said.
Moncks mentioned that the Knights had three
good hitters; to avoid them, his plan was to serve
tough and not allow them to set in the middle.
We didnt, we missed, he said. We made way
more mistakes this time than we did against Strath-
cona Tweedsmuir (in the semi nals). In the third
and fourth, they just sort of led. We had a hard time
catching them. We tried to come back, but a little
too late. Hopefully in zones in a week we have
a chance to regroup, and to have some revenge
against these guys.
Zones will take place in Cochrane this year on
Nov. 15-16; following that are provincials in Ed-
monton, where only one team from the south cen-
tral zone represents. Moncks hopes it will be SHS.
I hope so. Its a long shot Brooks is very strong,
and HTA is very strong. Theres a lot of good teams
there. Well have to play our best volleyball, he
said. They just got to realize they have to work
hard for every point, and stay focused.
Only ve girls returned from last seasons second
place squad; the younger rookies stepped up this
season to have a 5-2 season record. Moncks is still
extremely pleased with the playoff nish.
Every time we step on the court, I expect to win.
Im hoping that attitude carries over to the girls.
Our program, I hope, is top notch, and continues
to be in the future, he said.

league champions last year, and returned to the

The Strathmore Family Out-
door Rink project, to be placed
between Strathmore High School
and the baseball complex, was
granted $75,000 from the Alberta
Lottery Fund. The Strathmore
Agriclutural Society is in collabo-
ration with the town, the Lions
Club, the Kinsmen Club and the
Global Legacy Fund to complete
the project in 2014.
What weve been doing over
the last year is been organizing.
Were hoping to build this out-
door rink with the community
support, said Operation Manag-
er of the Ag Society, Jessica Hall.
What were going to be doing
is paving the complex so it can
be used in the winter months for
the usual sorts of activities you
would think of with an outdoor
rink, but then also, during the
summer months used for basket-
ball and lacrosse.
After the society brainstormed
the idea, they applied for the
Community Facility Enhance-
ment Program through the Al-
berta Lottery Fund.
The project itself is going to
be expensive approximately
$250,000. We asked for 50 per
cent, because usually grants are
matching, but nonetheless, we
were granted $75,000 and were
over the moon excited with the
opportunity, Hall said. Its giv-
ing us somewhere to start from
its great.
With the Strathmore Family
Centre at near capacity, an ex-
tension to that facility may ben-
et more children. However, the
Ag Society believes family rec-
reation is important, and that a
space is needed to accommodate
fun sports, too.
For us, as the Ag Society, our
mission is to promote recre-
ational facilities. Where we saw a
need, was the recreational side of
hockey or gure skating those
types of things, Hall said. Right
now, the schedule at the Family
Centre, is 98 per cent booked
with organized sports and we
want to give the opportunity for
all of the families to utilize the
outdoor rink for recreational
use.
If teams wish to use the Out-
door Rink for practice, they can,
but only for fun.
Were not going to book the
facility to teams and that sort of
thing, because what were pro-
moting is the use for families,
Hall said.
Double silver
Family Rink receives $75,000
tral High School (CCHS). A close matchup, Strathmore High
School had a 2-1 lead, but lost in ve sets: 26-24, 19-25, 23-25,
25-17, 15-12.
SHS had lost to County Central 3-2 during season play on
Oct. 28 as well, and similar to the varsity girls champions, this
is the rst gold for CCHS.
A couple players could consistently side out for them, and
so in a ve set match, thats a big advantage, Spartans boys
Coach Cole Hintz said. It was a tough matchup for us, they
had a lot of older players. Theyre bigger in some positions,
and that gave them an advantage at different times in the
match.
For junior varsity level, players can be in Grade 11 or young-
er.
We have a couple too; but our guys played well, they went
on and they worked hard. They played a lot of defense, but at
the end of the match sometimes you come out on the other
end of it, Hintz said.
Next year, many of the Spartans senior boys will be graduat-
ing. The varsity team may be comprised of mostly Grade 11s
for 2014; new talent will be needed for Hintzs junior varsity
squad.
Theres supposed to be some good Grade 9s coming in,
so well have some good Grade 10s next year too. Hopefully,
we can continue to build, and keep using our J.V. program to
develop for the varsity team, Hintz said.

Ringette U12

The Strathmore Ice Warriors has been
very successful so far this year, sitting
2-0. This weekend took the Strathmore
Ice Warriors (U12) Ringette team to
Sherwood Park for their rst tourna-
ment of the year. It was full of fun, ex-
citement and great ice play.
The rst game of the tournament saw
the Ice Warriors take on the Drayton
Valley Predators. The game was back
and forth and it looked like Drayton Val-
ley was going to walk away with a win.
There were only a couple minutes left
when the Ice Warriors tied it up 5-5. With
a bit of excitement as an Ice Warrior ring
slide through the crease, just narrowly
missing the next, the game ended in a
tie. The second game brought our War-
riors up against the home town Sher-
wood Park NRG team. The girls brought
a well-played game, and were neck and
neck with the hometown team. The War-
riors still succumbed to NRG by a score
of 12-7. The girls then took a load off in
the swimming pool which is always a
lot of laughs.
The Warriors stepped on the ice on
Saturday against the other home town
team, Sherwood Park Elite. The War-
riors stepped on the ice buzzing with
excitement. The Warriors were ready to
show Elite what a team from Southern
Alberta can do. After the rst period the
score was 4-3 in favour of Elite, but the
Warriors still had more to show. After
the second period was over the score
was 7-5, unfortunately for the Elite team.
There was still a slim chance Warriors
could be in the semi-nal. Drayton Val-
ley needed to lose by more then two
goals. That too didnt pan out for the
Warriors as Drayton Valley only lost by
two, which meant Drayton was in the
playoffs not the Warriors.
Ale Mackey had a fantastic weekend
in net, and her supporting cast, Susanne
Sevcik, Payton Jensen, Laura Sader, Cay-
ley Boschee, Joely Dahm, Cosette Lac-
roix, Olivia Wilson, Meghan Munchrath,
Carly Krahenbil, Jaylin MacLean, Grace
Praeker were stellar. They know they
have some work to do, but they are up
for the challenge. The season is early
and the Warriors will continue to make
huge strides while continuing to having
fun on ice.

Ringette U19

The Strathmore Belle girls met the
Calgary Blaze for the second time this
season, but didnt fair quite as well on
Nov. 7. The game started off being a very
close match with the rst two goals not
being scored until halfway through the
rst period, by Calgary. Strathmore re-
plied soon after with an excellent goal
from Kyra Keer, but alas Strathmore
couldnt capitalize on this and keep Cal-
gary at bay. The Blaze nally went on to
win the game 5-1, but an excellent dis-
play of Goaltending by Brooke McKenzie
nonetheless.
On Sunday, Nov. 10 the girls had an
exciting and unusual exhibition game
against the Strathmore Open Ladies
Team, which was, as anticipated, a lot
of fun for everyone. On the Ladies Open
was our very own Coach Rhonda Ol-
son and resident Referee Joanne Materi.
Many thanks to coach Chad Gillies for
ofciating the game and keeping all the
shenanigans to a minimum.

Defenseman Josh Smith, a former UFA Bison,
and Team Canada West took part in the Junior A
World Hockey Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Sco-
tia from Nov. 4-10. 16 to 19-year-old players from
British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and
Manitoba comprised the Canada West side, facing
off against Canada East, the United States, Russia,
Czech Republic, and Switzerland.
Its a very high class tournament. Team Canada
as a whole treat it very professionally. Its going
very well for us. Its a very cool experience, said
Smith, a Lacombe native. There are denitely a
lot of Canadian fans out there. Luckily we havent
played Canada East yet, I dont know how the
fans would go that way. They show up for a lot of
our games its been sold out so far.
Smith played for the Bisons for the 2009-2010
season, and graduated to the Prince George Cou-
gars in the WHL for three seasons. Now an as-
sistant captain for the Camrose Kodiaks in the
AJHL, he has 11 points in 17 games; hes on pace
to surpass last years personal best numbers of 28
points in 58 games.
Smith is one of ve 19-year-olds on Canada
West, and brings the experience of playing for
Canada Pacic in the 2010-2011 World U17 Tour-
nament.
Lots of the European teams have guys that are
actually going to the World Juniors. Playing with
them is quite an experience, but to be able to say
that we beat that team is a very privileged say-
ing, he said.
Smith had pegged the United States or Russia
as Canada Wests toughest opponents after beat-
ing Switzerland and the Czech Republic in pool
play, they lost to Russia in the semi nals on Nov.
8, 5-2.
In a short term competition like this, its kind
of up in the air, Smith said. Theres no real way
to tell. If you make a mistake, it can go either way.
You never know for sure.
Canada West captured bronze against Switzer-
land on Nov. 9, by a score of 5-3. Smith had two
assists in four tournament games. As a 19-year-
old, this was Smiths last year of eligibility for this
tournament. His current goals are to win the RBC
Cup with the Kodiaks, make his way back to the
WHL, and hopefully, to play hockey at a colle-
giate level while completing his education.
I want to nd a place to play later on in my
years, Smith said. Im in Camrose this year, and
going back to the WHL is kind of been a main
goal for me. Being able to work back and get
there next year would be quite a goal to reach,
but it all depends on how this year goes.

After losing 4-1 to the Lloyd-
minster Baker Hughes Bobcats
on Nov. 9, the UFA Bisons of-
fense picked up again the fol-
lowing day against the St. Albert
Sports Raiders with a 6-4 vic-
tory.
Sometimes you dont win all
the games, but were getting bet-
ter, Bisons Coach Dan MacDon-
ald said. Were moving the puck
better and were starting to show
signs that were growing togeth-
er as a team. Those are all good
things.
Lloydminster who are sec-
ond in the Dodge Division with
a 9-2-1 record took seven pen-
alties in the game, but the Bi-
sons could not capitalize on the
man advantage usually one of
their strong suits.
Its a work in progress.
Right now we use everyone on
the power play; they get their
chance, MacDonald said. They
all have to learn how to play in
those circumstances. Sometimes
its not as good as it should be,
and other times, its really good.
It depends on how the games
going.
Lloydminster is tied for most
goals in the league with 50,
along with Sherwood Park, and
the Bisons. However, the Bisons
also have a high goals against
with 49.
Offensive defensemen Mason
McCarty and Tristan Thompson
were out with injuries against
the Bobcats, perhaps leading to
the lack of Bisons goals.
Those are two good play-
ers, MacDonald said. We didnt
score many goals; they probably
were a factor that they werent
there. At the same time, the guys
have to step up and typically
we have when weve had inju-
ries. Its just part of the process.
McCarty returned to the lineup
against the Raiders, and earned
two assists. Thompson, suffer-
ing a shoulder injury, will likely
be back for the Bisons Nov. 15
game against the Calgary Royals.
Forward Connor Boyd had a
two goal, and two assist night in
the St. Albert win. He now has
15 points in 15 games.
Hes just getting better all
the time, MacDonald said. His
practices have been very good.
Usually, if you practice well, the
result is you play well in the
games. Thats how its going for
him. Hes just starting to reach
his stride good for him, his ef-
forts paying off.
The Bisons are 9-6-0, and sec-
ond in the Chrysler Division.

STAYING CONNECTED TO JESUS
Ive read an example about Lawrence
of Arabia and several Arab leaders
who went to Paris and stayed in the
same hotel. When they went into
the bathroom they were amazed to
discover they could ll an entire bath-
tub with water simply by turning the
handle on a faucet. They said Wow!
Weve never seen anything like this!
The water comes out like magic!
So when they were packing to leave
the hotel, the men removed the
faucets and packed them in their
luggage. They were thinking that the
faucets themselves magically created
the water. When they told Lawrence
of Arabia, he said no! The faucets
have to be connected to pipes, which
have to be connected to a source that
provides water. The faucets wont
give you any water unless the faucets
are connected to the right source.
This is what is all about in our spiritual
life: being connected to the right
source.
There are three important steps in the
process of being connected to the
right source.
First step is to get connected. The
question that I have for you is: Have
you established a connection with
Jesus?
Second, we must be sure that we
are connected to the right source.
There are so many people in this life
that think that they are connected
to Jesus, but in reality they are not.
One of the examples in the Bible is
the Pharisees, who thought that they
were connected to God, but in reality
they were drinking from the wrong
sources. In His conversation with
the Samaritan woman at the well
Jesus offers Himself as the source
of living water. He says in John 4:14:
but whoever drinks of the water that
I shall give him will never thirst
The question is: What source are you
drinking from in your spiritual life?
Third, we must make sure that we
stay connected, or remain connected
to Jesus every day. Jesus says in
John 15:5, I am the vine; you are the
branches. If you remain in me and I
in you, you will bear much fruit; apart
from me you can do nothing.
In this verse Jesus clearly points out
that our life as a branch depends on
our connection to the vine. As the
branch cannot survive apart from
the vine, so we cannot survive apart
from remaining or staying connected
to Jesus.

Smith credits much of his success to what he learned
while with the UFA Bisons in Strathmore; the team won 18
of 34 games, and lost in the semi-nals in 2011.
We had a really good team; we had a lot of guys that
were in that WHL bantam draft, he said. We didnt do so
well during the playoffs, but it was a pretty big stepping
stone to get to where I was in the WHL later.

THANK YOUS
In Memory of Crystal
Two years ago today
My frst born was taken away.
She was only thirty-one
Her life had but begun.
Not a day goes by
Tat I dont wonder WHY?
But I guess her time had come
For the Lord to take her home.
Bonnie Muir
In loving memory of a loving husband, father
and grandfather who passed away
November 8, 1987.
~
When good friends walk beside us,
On trails that we must keep,
Te burdens is less heavy,
And the hills are not so steep.
Gone are the days we used to share,
But in our hearts you are always there.
Te gates of memory will never close,
We miss you more than anyone knows.
With tender love and deep regret,
We who love you will never forget.
~
Forever remembered by his loving family, Marie,

County to call a Senior who may be lonely and has few opportunities for social interaction with
others. This program recognizes the importance of breaking down isolation, promoting and sup-

are supported by receiving a phone call weekly from our friendly Volunteers on a regular basis.
Our Volunteers, as bridges to their matched Senior, should display: a great sense of humor,
good listening skills, a friendly voice, ability to speak on a number of topics, pleasant,
positive and understanding manner.
Each Volunteer will be matched with a Senior who has been screened and has indicated a

This program has had a 1 year history through Bridging the Gap.
Support for Volunteers is provided by the Program Facilitator.
This is not a counseling service.

and to assist them to meet their goals.
Volunteers meet with moms one-on-one and enjoy doing a variety of activities with moms and
their children.
Volunteers are provided with orientation and training
The commitment is a visit once a week for 1 to 2 hours with the understanding that there may
be times the Volunteer is unable to visit.
Support for Volunteers is provided by the Mentorship Supervisor, who will accompany the
Volunteer on the rst visit and will keep in close contact with the Volunteer.
Mentorship get togethers are planned to allow for an opportunity to meet other
Volunteer Mentors.
