12-unit building approved downtown

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

Despite pushbacks from neighbouring landowners, town council supported an epoch-making decision in approving a development permit that would conceiv- ably result in greater downtown density and new busi- nesses to Strathmore’s core – the first of many future changes facing residents. The construction of a 12-unit apartment building at 604 and 606 Lakeside Boulevard is forging full steam ahead, after the issue was brought back to council with

further details and discussion of parking, increased traf- fic, variances greater than 25 per cent, and reviving the downtown area. After the May 20 regular council meeting, administra- tion received direction to inform more residents of the proposed development and provide additional time to allow residents to respond. According to Werner Fischer, director of planning and development for the town, a second letter was sent to 33 landowners producing an- other five letters, four of which were in opposition to the apartment building. While some residents expressed concerns of the proj- ect not keeping with the tenor of the neighbourhood, council was challenged to make a decision – the first of its kind - to steer Strathmore forward in a prosperous direction. “I think we need to increase the town density to keep

it viable, and while I understand that that can be a chal-

lenge for people in the community, I have seen it work in my own neighbourhood,” said Councillor Denise Pe- terson, who’s lived in downtown Strathmore for three decades. “[We] watched the decimation of the downtown over the years as it moved farther and farther east … for us that was far more disturbing than having density come into our neighbourhood. As density has come in over the last decades, we’ve also seen accompanying devel- opment. We’ve seen incremental improvements.” Councillor Peterson added that a larger downtown population will increase chances of attracting amenities and grocery stores back into the area and contribute to

a more desirable area. The proposed four-storey apartment building will pro- vide 13 off-street parking stalls, stand 13.25 meters tall

at its highest point, and is supported by the Downtown Overlay District. According to the Land Use bylaw, the development meets the 12 parking-stall requirement and remains under the 14-meter height allowance as set out in the R3 District, which the lots were rezoned as in 1995. “Seeing that increased residents is the only way to

save downtown and that retail will typically follow this,

I think the struggles that we’re facing is that this is the

first of its kind in this area,” said Councillor Pat Fule, who attended a Downtown Revitalization conference. Continued on Page 5

Community fights back against cancer

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

Last year’s absence of the Relay for Life prompted unification within the Strath- more community, which sent a clear message over the weekend - the void is no longer acceptable. As funds already exceeded expecta- tions with a whopping $21,000 before the event even kicked off on Saturday, 42 participants braced the cold and rainy weather while embarking on a six-hour relay around Kinsmen Park. After many contributions from local businesses, whether financially or in kind, the enthusiasm and determination eliminated any uncertainty about the event’s future within the Town of Strath- more. “So to see it grow so quickly in the last two weeks gives me so much posi- tivity for next year, and I think we laid the ground work to make an amazing event next year,” said Siobhan Doherty, revenue fund development coordinator with the Canadian Cancer Society. “The thought of Strathmore Relay for Life being cancelled again, that’s not even a possibility in my mind. My con- cept of this right now is cancer never stops. It doesn’t matter the weather, doesn’t matter the time, it doesn’t mat- ter your age. So we’re not going to stop. This is uncomfortable, it’s rainy, it’s wet, but we can make a difference in cancer.” However, the initiative to bring the event back to Strathmore began long be- fore last weekend. Over the last couple months, the staff at the Strathmore Val- ue Drug Mart drummed up interest and canvassed the streets selling over 150 luminaries for their campaign, Light up the Park. The team also received dona- tions from Strathmore businesses total-

ling $1,000 and took the title for the top fundraising team with their donation of nearly $8,400. Legends Sports Bar was also among those contributors who were instrumen- tal in reviving the cause, by donating their space and a percentage of bar sales for several fundraising initiatives. “When they approached us we were more than happy to help them out, and it’s always a lot easier when it hits home,” said Logan Cox, co-owner of the establishment, who had a friend and grandfather battling the disease. “If there is anything we can do to help, we are more than happy to. Especially when it’s local and in the community.” In an effort to attract more commu- nity members and focus on family, the event was open to the public for the first time in Strathmore. Recent changes also allowed for the relay to be reduced to six hours, rather than go throughout the night, and be held during the day. Resi- dents were also exposed to food trucks, entertainment, and even a dunk-tank, while the day finished off with the light- ing of luminaries in memory of loved ones. Faced with becoming another statis- tic on four occasions, Dale Stephenson, cancer survivor, not only participated in the relay, but shared his story with the crowd. Having been diagnosed with can- cer for the first time 34 years ago at the age of 16, Stephenson battled the disease four times and received two bone mar- row transplants. With a portion of his life spent in hospitals, he is no stranger to the costs associated with the diagnosis and understands the value of keeping the relay alive within the community. “The wheels start turning and spinning and your mind goes in 42,000 different directions,” Stephenson said when he

found out he had cancer the first time. “It’s nice to see it come back to Strath- more. It’s not something that needs to go away, and it’s all about helping the communities and people that you don’t know. Your story will ring volumes in their ears. Maybe now, maybe not, or maybe in a year.” Aware of the community’s contribu- tions in the past, Robin Navin, who Doherty said played a crucial part in bringing the event to life, felt confident in advising the Canadian Cancer Soci- ety that a goal of $20,000 is reasonable. Navin, who previously raised $7,000 for the Airdrie Relay for Life, took on a more active role in brining the relay back to Kinsmen Park. After her brother–in-law, Peter Navin, a professional snowboard- er and sponsored skateboarder, lost his 10-year battle with brain cancer in late 2013, Navin struggled to explain to her young children their uncle’s fate. In turn, the kids were eager to participate in ways to help prevent other families from losing their uncles. While the pro- cess proved exhausting, in part due to a lack of volunteers, Navin was thrilled about the participant turnout and dona- tion results. “My goal is that one day no one has to tell their kids what dying of cancer is, because that was hard,” Navin said. “Strathmore has a lot to give and it’s a great community. Events like this, like Canada Day, have huge turnouts. I think we can make the Relay for Life like that too, where the whole town comes out to have a good time and give back to a horrible disease.” The Relay for Life in Strathmore raised $24,136 that will go back into services provided to cancer patients, such as pro- viding gas for the volunteer transporta- tion services.

Q: Where can I scatter cremated remains?

A:

In Alberta, as with most of Canada, there are no actual laws pertaining to the scattering of cremated remains. However, there are some guidelines that should be followed. In all cases, permission should be obtained prior to scattering. Scattering is permitted on any Crown land, including in water. National parks prohibit the scattering of cremated remains in water, although you may “cast them to the wind” without obtaining permission. You may also scatter cremated remains in most municipal parks and cemeteries but only with permission from the municipality. When scattering cremated remains on private property, it is important to obtain permission from the owner of the land prior to the scattering. In any case, when scattering cremated remains, it is recommended that the scattering is done with discretion.

DISC GOLF
Strathmore Assembly of Youth, a group of engaged teens, has
undertaken the task of designing and building a championship
disc golf course in the community of Strathmore, AB. Located
30 minutes east of Calgary on the Trans Canada Highway,
our course is scheduled to open on Canada Day with a
competitive tournament for experienced players, followed by
lessons for newcomers to the sport.

most of the course!!
The remaining 3 baskets (holes 3, 7, and 11) and the signs at
each tee will be up soon, too!
CATS AT LARGE
Objective of the Game
Disc Golf is played like traditional golf, but with flying discs
instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each
time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The
goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The
player with the lowest total strokes of the entire course wins.
Please make sure your cats are either indoors or harnessed at all
times. The Cat Control Bylaw states: Section 402. Where a cat is
running at large, the owner or occupant of that property on which
the cat is running at large may make a complaint to the
Bylaw Enforcement Officer.
501. A Bylaw Enforcement Officer may capture and impound
any cat running at large with respect to
which a complaint under this Bylaw has been made.
SAFETY FIRST
ALL OTHER PARK USERS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY.
Never throw when players or park users are within range.
Always give park users the right of way. Be aware of your
surroundings and environment.
2015 MUNICIPAL CENSUS
Out Of Bounds
If any area of O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B.
line, then the disc is considered O.B. A throw that lands
out of bounds, must be played from a point 3 feet in bounds
from where the disc went out of bounds. Permanent water
hazards, backyards, pathways, and public roads are always
out of bounds.
Just a quick reminder for those of you who have
not yet completed your Census, please do so either

Decision aimed to revitalize downtown

Continued from Page 1

“I agree that there are going to be problems … at some point we have to increase density beyond what we’ve been doing. I understand that people are upset and there is some worry about this, but this is the first of other things that are coming, and it’s one of those things that may have to be done.” In addition to circulating further cor- respondence to residents, town coun- cil also requested information regard- ing the condition, cost, and options of the back alley –parallel to Lakeside Boulevard. With a relatively low cost of $16,000 to $20,000 for improving the north- south portion of the lane situated be- hind the site, and $34,000 to $40,000 for upgrades along the entire block through the east-west portion, the de- veloper agreed to pay nearly double his share for upgrading the town- owned road. This would include the portion of the lane along properties 602, 604, and 606. However, it was the issue of park- ing that raised red flags for Council- lor Brad Walls. With a requirement of only one parking stall per dwelling, one visitor off-street parking stall, and some on-street parking, Walls was un- able to justify approving the develop- ment permit when he reasoned many

households require both members to be working and driving a vehicle. “I will not be supporting this be- cause I do not believe that one park- ing stall is adequate for a dwelling, even though the bylaw states that,” he said. “I look at my little complex, there’s four houses there, and there’s 12 vehicles. To me one parking stall is simply not sufficient even with street parking.” Although Councillor Walls voted in opposition of the motion to approve the development with conditions as were outlined in the draft develop- ment permit, the rest of council voted for the motion. The permit sought le- niency for setbacks to the front yard, side property lines, site width and area, and allowable density. According to Fischer, such decisions are necessary to ensure downtown Strathmore will be viable once again. “I think we have very clear direc- tion from the Municipal Development Plan that we want to encourage and promote re-development in the down- town,” said Fischer. “Everything tends to be a bit of a compromise and some- times you never satisfy anybody in the process of doing it.” The matter is subject to appeal, and those wishing to appeal can submit their reasons to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board.

Are you a mosquito-attractor? You are if you have type O blood or if you’re a beer-drinker. If you fit into these categories, you will be more attractive to bees. Repellants containing “DEET” are still the best mosquito repellants. And by the way, eating lots of garlic and taking extra vitamin B supplements won’t help. Many people want to get rid of excess belly fat. We know that kind of fat is bad for our health. One of the first things to look at when considering this problem is your alcohol intake. Alcohol seems to cause belly fat more than other foods because the liver is working hard to metabolize the alcohol and has less energy to burn off the fat which can result in weight gain. We often hear about the high cost of medications here and around the world. Perhaps the world’s most expensive drug is eculizumab which would cost $500,000 per year to use. It is used to treat a very rare blood disorder called atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome. Sort of adds perspective to drug costs. Here is a list of birth control methods and their relative rates of effectiveness:

Strathmore hopeful of carnival return

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

West Coast Amusement rolled onto the Strathmore & District Agricultural Soci- ety’s grounds – and despite the cool temperatures, there were lots of smiles from lots of young kids that were en- joying rides and the midway food. Buzz Kimble, a repre- sentative with West Coast Amusement, thought it is a tough sell in smaller towns as these carnivals are meant for the bigger centres, but liked the space that the Strathmore had to offer. “You see how much it is to set-up a big carnival, oth- erwise we’d have to go to a smaller mall,” said Kimble. “We usually go for the big towns because we have more people and everything – in small towns you don’t get that much.” Kimble added that Strath- more had a great atmo- sphere surrounding the event. “It’s great, you’ve got the park, the baseball game, ev- erything,” he said. Local attendee Tammy Heinzlmeir would like to

see this entertainment come around to Strathmore more often, as she thinks it’s a great way to promote the town and the future of big- ger events in the area. “It doesn’t happen very

often, it’s a big deal,” she said. Heinzlmeir felt that this carnival would be better on

a

weekend for a crowd and

it

took some convincing for

her kids to go on the rides. “They had to be broken in but they’re fun,” said Heinzl- meir. Her son, Jacob, just fin- ished his fifth time on the Spring Ride where he felt scared but really enjoyed it at the same time. “It’s exciting, I (also) like the bumper cars because you get to bump into peo- ple,” said Jacob. He added that he would like to see the carnival come back more often because then he can do all the rides he wants. Strathmore & District Agricultural Society Gen- eral Manager Herb McLean thinks the carnival’s appear- ance in town bodes well for the possibility of it coming to the Strathmore Stampede

in the very near future. “We know there is an appetite for carnivals in town,” said McLean. “We know that from exit interviews from the Stampede and Heritage Days from

a year ago.” He emphasized that this was more of

a testing period to give it a try before

any future commitments are made. “We’re unable to attract one still for the Stampede and Heritage Days,”

said McLean. “We wanted to have the

outlet, we wanted to give it a try. We wanted to hopefully have one the park. He’s (WCA manager) happy with the set-up, it’s a pilot if you will and an experiment.” There is nothing but positivity that McLean sees with the carnival and he hopes it comes back twice a year. “There were lots of kids, that’s the great thing about it, no line-ups and it’s comfortable,” said McLean. “You’re not standing for 20 minutes waiting for a ride.”

Bow Valley College Career Expo leads

ANDREA ROBERTS Times Contributor

Bow Valley College hosted a career expo with hopes of promoting education and ca- reer paths in Strathmore and surrounding re- gion. The event, held on June 9 at the Civic Cen- tre, was aimed towards high school students, adult learners and those seeking new op- portunities. Attendees were able to talk with local employers, local service providers and representatives from places such as McBride Career Group, Community Futures, the Strath- more Chamber of Commerce and Strathmore Immigrant Services. “Bow Valley is about access to education, and we make them work ready,” said Corinne Finnie the director of Regional Stewardship

at the college. “Post-secondary is important in rural com- munities as it leads to economic and social well-being.” Currently the college offers a number of programs and in the fall will be offering ex- citing new programs in continuing education. Lilian Au is the administrative assistant for the Strathmore and Chestermere area. She helped to organize the event in order to bring these education and employment opportu- nities to the community. At the campus she helps the students on their path to employ- ment. “I help see which program is the best fit for the person and make sure they have the requirements they need,” said Au. Registration is now open for the fall semes- ter.

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

When the Western District Histori- cal Society were required to make an out-of-the-blue abrupt decision in pur- chasing – and therefore preserving - the 105-year-old Strathmore Anglican Church, the organization faced thou- sands of dollars to move the existing structure to a temporary location and off its current land. With fortuitous tim- ing, the society was able to attract the attention of three judges at the second annual Let’s Make a Pitch event that awarded the society the prize money of $5,000. Having been quoted moving costs of $10,000 along with addition- al $2,000 per beam to go underneath the structure, cost of insurance at the new location, and the moving of pow- er lines, the winnings will help offset some of the society’s financial load. “We were given the offer of purchas- ing the church or not and we had to make a fairly quick decision, because it has to be moved very soon,” said Lynne Fair, member of the Western District Historical Society. “Preserving it is important, and the Anglican Church people are very happy that it’s not leaving town. If we hadn’t taken it there was a buyer all ready to take it and it would’ve been gone. But the major cost is in the moving.” The grass-roots committee, which re- ceived its society status in January, has met for the past two years, worked on strategic-planning, and sought advice from experts at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary. By acquiring the Anglican Church, the society hopes to incorpo- rate the structure into their plans of establishing a museum, and possibly accommodate an even bigger vision of a Strathmore Historic Park. According to Fair the project will focus on the rich heritage of the CPR Demonstration and Supply Farm and the Irrigation District that played key roles in Strathmore’s history from 1908

to 1943. Although currently still in a planning phase, the society is aware their vision may take years to come to fruition and will require ongoing fun- draising. “The planning of the museum is a very long-range project … this doesn’t happen overnight,” Fair added. “If we don’t spend a lot of time doing all of our visioning, needs assessments, plan- ning, and paperwork before anything gets off the ground, we may not be as successful as we would hope.” Ticking off all of the criteria for this year’s Dragon’s Den-inspired Let’s Make a Pitch event, the project aims to promote community pride, engage community involvement, strengthening the quality of life, and inspire change. The competition is the brainchild of Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Strathmore Dwight Stanford, who was inspired when he participat- ed in a similar event at the Economic Developers Conference last year. Win- ning $500 for his team’s idea, Stanford reinvested the funds – which grew to $10,000 – into the project that most im- pressed the judges for beautifying the town. Mimicking the same style, Jerry Lem- mon with Talisman Energy, William G. Turnbull president of W.G. Turnbull & Associates, and Kenneth Struss with Cancorp Property Group deliberated five pitches, which included little free libraries, a graffiti initiative, eats of Strathmore, and park enhancement. “The judges took it very seriously,” said Stanford. “The Western District Historical Society was neat, because the group dressed the part. They’ve got a group that’s enthused about it. They have some members with good history of this area, and hopefully in the future they can get set up and get a facility.” While Stanford was pleased with the turnout and Travelodge’s donation of their facility and refreshments, plans for next year may be shifted towards

the end of the year. With program- filled summer months, Stanford ex- pects moving the event to the fall will provide non-profit organizations with more time to prepare and possibly in- crease participation.

Mini-Budget deserves proper scrutiny

DEREK FILDEBRANDT Wildrose MLA for Strathmore-Brooks

Alberta’s government is running on autopilot right now, without any budgetary framework in place. In fact, the prov- ince’s finances are still being run based on Alison Redford’s budget from March of 2014, the last budget actually passed by the legislature. While former premier Jim Prentice introduced a budget before calling an election, it was never actually debated or passed by the legislature. That means that the government

REMEMBERING OUR ROOTS ~Gordon & Viola (Vi) Hilton

JOHN GODSMAN

Times Contributor

Gordon’s grandparents Henry and Florence Hil- ton emigrated from England to the Nightingale District in 1910, and became part of the English Colony. Henry was a tailor in England, but moved to Canada to become a farmer, so Gordon’s roots in agriculture were set. Gordon’s mother’s family, the Maillous also originated in England, immigrating to Piapot, Sask. in 1909. Vi’s father’s family - the Bar- telens immigrated from Holland in 1908 to the Aakenstad Dutch Colony, northeast of Strathmore. They were among the group who helped build the first Cath- olic church in Strathmore, in 1910. Unfortunately, it didn’t have a church bell, and when the elder Mrs. Bartelen was dy- ing, she asked her husband to purchase a bell in her memory. Accordingly, a bell was ordered from France, arriving here in 1926, and was inscribed with Bartelen family names, as well as those of the Pope, Bishop and Priest who were in office at the time. This bell was moved when a new church replaced the original building, and was still in use at the time of the demolition of this church in 2013. Vi and Gordon were able to re- trieve the bell. Vi’s mother’s family – the Verweires, immigrated from Belgium to the Finnegan district, near Gem, in 1913. Gordon grew up in the Nightingale area, and Vi in the Cheadle area. They both started school in one-room country schools, for their elementary education. Gordon attended Berta Vale, and Vi the Turner schools. To reach school they had to either ride a horse (Vi), or walk to and from school. By the time they were ready to attend high school, the country schools had closed, and they were bused to the original Samuel Crowther School in Strath- more. This was followed by a time at SAIT for Gordon, and Olds Agricultural College for Vi. They were married in the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Strathmore on Nov. 22, 1955 and the reception fol-

lowing was held in the Strathmore Legion Hall. They had five children – Deborah, Spencer, Law- rence, Carolyn and Sterling – who have given them nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Lawrence was tragically killed in an accident in 1976, and his school classmates approached town council to have the park located on Westmount Drive named the Lawrence Hilton Park in his hon- our. Initially, Gordon and Vi lived four miles north of town, where Gordon farmed with his father Leon- ard, and brother Ron, for nine years. In 1964, they ventured out on their own, purchasing the ‘Harvey’ farm in the Crow- foot area. The day they arrived, it was so windy that some of the land was blowing, and Gordon resolved to put an end to this, and he started the experimenta- tion, now known as continuous cropping and ‘No Till’ farming. As one of the originators, it was only natural for him to be elected President of the Alber- ta No Till Farmers Association when it was formed in 1978. He travelled extensively in the 70’s and 80’s, looking for new ideas, which he shared with others. With his son, Spencer, they developed a slide show presentation, showing the benefits of conser- vation farming to farmers across Western Canada. In 1980, he brought the first ‘No Till’ drill to West- ern Canada. Their farm became a demonstration farm for conservation farming and they hosted many tour groups from across Canada, the U.S., China, Russia, South Africa and Australia. Mini- mum tillage is now widely practiced by the vast majority of farmers world wide! Gordon has been recognized over the years for his innovation and foresight into soil and water conservation, by be- ing inducted into the Soil Conservation Council of Canada’s Hall of Fame in Ottawa, and also received its L.B.Thompson Award for Soil Conservation, the Calgary Stampede Family Farm Award, and was re- cently inducted into The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame in Edmonton. Their farm is now being operated by their sons and wives – Spencer/Lynne, Sterling/Lianna, and

Council grants contractor second chance to fix Thomas Drive

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

After the reconstruction of Thomas Drive fell flat on meet- ing town council’s expectations, local officials reluctantly granted the contractor another shot at rectifying the issues and completing the project that began in 2013. Northstar Trucking undertook the reconstruction project two years ago, which included replacement of water and sewer lines, installing new storm water infrastructure, and new road base and surfacing. The contractor removed the asphalt from Parklane Drive to Brent Boulevard and allowed two years for the project to settle before top-lifting in 2015. The two-year requirement allowed for the road to be ob- served and for issues, such as sinking of the base, to be recognized – the only way to be aware of any issues. During the two-year period, residents and council became increasingly frustrated with the road’s numerous potholes and pooling water. “Everybody in the community knows there is something wrong,” said Councillor Steve Grajczyk. “I want to reiterate this, on Brent Boulevard the second lift has never been put in in places, and it has lasted 20 years now, and it’s gotten nowhere near the problems, not even close, to the problems that this one has.” Last year, council was approached by SNC Lavalin, the project’s engineers, urging the town to move forward with the top-lift a year ahead of schedule. Yet a higher price de- mand, a flawed report, and some councillors’ desire to see repairs to the roadway before placement of the top-lift, re- sulted in council’s decision to take a risk of further rate- payer complaints, and stick to the original completion date of 2015. Then, two weeks ago, despite growing concerns regarding the contractor and the quality of the project, which had pre- viously been described as a botched job, it was announced that Northstar Trucking will be carrying out warranty work this year, and will provide the much anticipated top-lift. The updates, with costs contained within the existing budget of $390,000, will consist of digging out and replacing segre- gated areas, providing a level base of asphalt, and finishing it off with a top-lift. However, council was also required to consider approving an additional $20,000 for the inclusion of Brent Boulevard’s right-hand turning lane completion. But without a safety net to fall back on, once the top-lift is completed and subsequently ends the project with North- star Trucking, some councillors remained leery about the request and insisted on greater assurance.

“I use Thomas Drive on a daily basis, seven days a week, and I really hope I don’t see the same potholes in the same places, on Thomas Drive next spring,” said Councillor Rocky Blok- land. “And if we do, then what?” According to administration once the project is completed, if problems arise, the only option would be to prove faulty workmanship or mate- rials. However, council was reassured that SNC Lavalin will be on site as third-party testers and collect samples during placement of any warranty items or construction of top-lift. While Thomas Drive is experiencing numer- ous issues, administration had previously said that two different firms were hired to do analysis on the state of the roadway and detailed reports showed that the work had been done according to industry standards. Earlier this year, council

was informed that some of the pooling could be attributed to the construction, while others were presumed to have existed prior to the project’s start date. Staff also said that Thomas Drive ex- perienced underground water conditions at the time of construction and without the existence of a top-lift the water soaked down to the base lift. Although council was presented with the op- tion to change contractors and utilize the Lake- side and 4th Avenue project contractor, staff ad- vised against the change in order to keep the project and its concerns to one contractor. In accordance with the $20,000 for the Brent Boulevard turning lane upgrades, council ap- proved the project budget of a total of $410,000 to complete the entire project with Northstar Trucking. The project has a completion date prior to August 1.

Heaven is a class act

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

It’s nearly impossible for Heaven Berhe Sium to make it to her class- room without being stopped by her peers numerous times in the hallway. The scenario was almost inconceivable three years ago for the warm-hearted and now outspoken international stu- dent from Uganda, who in the past could often be found by herself with nose in book at the junior high school library. However, through encourage- ment from the family she resides with in Strathmore and several teachers, Heaven quickly became involved in her school and within the community. Due to her unwavering support and dedica- tion for the betterment of those around her, Heaven’s personality and attitude has earned her respect form her fel- low classmates and distinguished the recent graduate from the class of 2015 – making her the perfect candidate for this year’s Strathmore Times Class Act award. “It is nice to have someone say ‘oh thank you for doing this’ even though you do it from the goodness of your heart, and that someone actually appre- ciates what I do,” said Heaven. “I just love helping people because it makes me feel good. If you can help, why not right? I’m more open to say what I want, and what I want change in.” Heaven became a member of the Strathmore community three-and-a-half years ago, when her family sent her to Canada to graduate with an education that carried more weight around the world – an opportunity that is accom- panied by a $20,000-a-year price-tag. As her father works for the United Nations and wanted to ensure a great future for his children, Heaven’s older brother and younger sister are also attending school and university in Strathmore and Calgary, while three more siblings

are back in Africa. Since moving to Alberta, Heaven has embraced her new community and stra- tegically kept her schedule jam-packed. Not only does she stand out in her aca- demics, but volunteers with the Strath- more Hospital and Sagewood Care Cen- tre, while finding time to attend nearly every sport’s game, drama production, and school event – usually cheering the loudest. “I may seem like the social butterfly, but I don’t go to parties and I always

have a timetable,” said Heaven. “I always have a specific time to do something.

I don’t want my education to struggle

because of that. That is the main rea- son I’m here; for education. But educa- tion shouldn’t take up all my life and

if I studied all the time I’d probably go

crazy. And I’m really loud at sports but that’s my way of venting.” Yet her commitment doesn’t end there. Heaven tutors other students, works in the school cafeteria, serves as a scorekeeper at basketball and soc- cer games, helps to fundraise money for school initiatives, and is part of the graduation committee.

Every year, the award singles out an individual who showed extraordinary accomplishments in one or more ar- eas outside of their education, while remaining in good academic standing. Therefore, the person’s character and personality distinguish them in their community and their school. When Heaven’s paperwork came before the committee, the decision was a no-brain- er. “It’s true, it is the perfect award for Heaven to win, she represents the best of that class,” said Strathmore High School Associate Principal Kyle Larson, who was also on the committee. “She’s so incredibly supportive of all of the events at the school, and I haven’t seen many kids that come to more basketball games, or to more of

Marguerite Watson held up an unfinished quilt, believed to have been started in the 1930s, as one of the treasures that was on sale at the United Church’s first Treasure sale. The sale, an offshoot of their thrift sales, focused on selling objects that would be of value. The money raised will go to a charity called Solidarity for Women.

Summer games turn green

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

Hard work and zeal are on the rise among members of the Sustainability Committee that seeks to set a precedent in providing the first ever “green” Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games in Strathmore. Eight committee members have been actively pursuing eco-friendly initiatives to mimic efforts taken by the youth games held in Banff. And while the focus is primarily cen- tered on the anticipated summer games, Strathmore may find the committee to become a permanent entity for sustain- ability. “It’s sad to say, but sustainability is kind of a new concept for our town,” said Bob Sobol, director of the Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games. “Interestingly enough, that interest has really grown and I think our community is going to benefit. In attempting to make the games the greenest one yet, the committee has focused on sustainability, education and awareness, and creating a legacy. In relation to the games, residents can expect reusable water bottles, recycle bins, water dispensing stations, electric vehicles, pedi cabs, pul- verized glass for the horseshoe pits, biodegradable garbage bags, and plant-based plates utensils, cups and glasses. Since the games’ announcement last year, H&H Huxted began collecting flower containers to be upcycled and be used for the games. By using perennial plants, the commit- tee hopes it will further establish a legacy for years to come. “It’s been a great committee to work with, and I think that we’re going to keep this together and grow from here, have a sustainability committee, and Huxted wants to be a part of that,” said Colin Huxted, owner of H&H Huxted Enterprises. “It would be nice if Strathmore could be ahead. I believe, Calgary, in 2018, is going to be where they no longer accept organic material. Vancouver has already done that.” After being approached by Sobol, Huxted didn’t hesitate to jump on board, and will be donating porta potties, hand washers, all the recycling, crush the glass into sand for the horseshoe pits, and compost. Having recently met with Al- berta Environment, the site should hopefully become a Class 1 composting site next week. “We had a few meetings where we tried to decide on proj- ects that we could tackle, and tackle successfully and basical- ly most of this is centered around education,” Sobol added. “We just want to show people that sustainability does not mean you don’t use paper. There’s no finite definition to this. It’s just using a little bit of common sense.” The Alberta 55 Plus Summer games will be held in Strath- more from July 16 to 19, and volunteers are still needed.

Charity lamb supports Cheadle Lions’ hospice project

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

The Cheadle Lions Club’s latest mil-

lion-dollar initiative recently received

a little financial support with the help

of a little lamb with a great value. The Cheadle 4-H Club auctioned off the charity lamb three times; each time it was donated back to the cause of fund- ing a hospice project in Wheatland County. Although Heather Hebbes and her fam- ily have been involved in raising charity lambs where donations went towards the children’s hospital, she is aware of the growing need for a hospice in the area. “It’s good for the kids to give back,” Hebbes said. “I think a hospice is in great need here, because we only have one palliative care bed at our hospital, and we serve such a large area. It’ll be nice for families to have someone closer by, than to have to trav-

el to Calgary. It’s a good thing to do.”

Hebbes’s two children, Kylee and Landon, raised “Annie” who was ini- tially bought by the Eagle Lake Nurser- ies for $13.50/lb. The animals was then donated back, and auctioned off again for $11.50/lb to Peak Contracting in Calgary. When the lamb was returned again, Tri West Agro in Rosebud ac- quired the animal for $9/lb. Weighing in at 98 lbs, an additional $3,200 was donated to the Cheadle Li- ons Club’s hospice project, raising the total to over $65,000.

“Without making it seem like a small amount, because it’s not, the real ben- efit to us was getting the word out to a lot of people in our community and the county,” said Cheadle Lions Club mem- ber Sonny Warrack. “It was out in a public place, and that was huge for us. But the money is excellent. It’s going to cost us a lot to build this place. We’re going to need some big-time partners. Our club, we want to initiate this project and we’re going to follow through on it, so we’re going to need a lot of financial help, that’s for sure.” The Cheadle Lions Club recently held their first-of-its-kind Feed a Steer competitions that raised over $60,000. While Wheatland County currently is not in possession of a hospice facility, such an establishment would allow for a life-affirming alternative to hospital- ization. The facility would be of benefit to anyone suffering from cancer, dis- eases including advanced heart, respi- ratory, and kidney disease as well as ALS, MS, and Alzheimers. Acknowledging the $500,000 the community raised for the Food Grain project, Warrack has no doubt the com- munity will band together and raise the required funds. While the project will require time, research, and money, the club was thrilled and proud that 4-H Club mem- bers are getting involved in supporting the project. Annie was auctioned off on June 4.

Strathmore Station is one excellent place

ANDREA ROBERTS Times Contributor

word of mouth. Klironomos said he has received many questions about the restau- rant even from some places

in the States. In summer they receive many tour buses that pull off from the Trans-Can- ada highway to eat there. When asked how they found out about the Station most will say they heard from other tour drivers. This kind of conversa- tion between travellers is great adver- tisement for the restau- rant as well as the town of Strath- more. Klirono - mos said that they work very hard to stand out as

good res-

taurant and

a good place

go eat. He

states that

they try to stay up to date with the latest culinary and health trends. More people are watching what they eat either because of allergies, dietary needs or refusal to eat hormone-filled foods. Klironomos and the restau- rant make much of their food fresh and in-house. They make their own hamburgers and hamburger buns, they cut their own meat that they get from a private butcher and they get vegetables from local producers. They try to keep things fresh and delicious, as they want customers to leave with a good experience.

Customers have spoken, as the Strathmore Station re- cently received a certificate of excellence from TripAd- visor, which shows the sta-

tion’s dedication to customer approval and good food. The award was an un- known and pleasant sur- prise as it ar- rived at the Station early last week. The rea- son for the award was stated on the paper along with the cer- tificate that stated the Strathmore Station was recognized by customers

as one of the best in busi- ness. Currently

there are 130 reviews for the Station on TripAdvisor with a four out of five star approval score. Most of the reviews have giv- en it a four or five star review with a 48% excellence rating. “For someone to go onto TripAdvisor and actually comment, they are taking some their time to do so,” said Peter Klironomos, own- er of the Strathmore Station. “It is nice that we can get that from the customers it is a vote of confidence.” The Station’s popularity goes above the reviews re- ceived, as many people do not comment and instead give their opinion through

Official opposition faces opposition from government

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

While the nearly one-month-old NDP government assured the opposition that a provincial sales tax will not be on the agenda, Wildrose MLAs were disheartened, however, by the govern- ment’s paucity of information regard- ing the mulit-million dollar mini-bud- get and the projected full budget. The $18 billion NDP interim bud- get, introduced as an interim supply bill, will separate the newly elected government from the 2014 Redford budget framework that the province is currently operating under. However, Strathmore-Brooks MLA and Wildrose Shadow Minister Derek Fildebrandt’s optimism is quickly deflating after meeting with the finance minister ear- lier this week. “We’re not very optimistic that the government will work very coopera- tively with us on the issue, and we put forward some recommendations that I believe are very reasonable and moderate that should be able to reach across ideological divides and focus on accountability,” said Fildebrandt. “They have made it clear that they are not accepting most of these recommen- dations, that the mini-budget will not contain in it particularly much detail, and that we cannot expect a full bud- get until nearly the winter. They will continue to use the PCs funny money accounting to allow them to continue borrowing billions of dollars a year without accounting for it.” The Wildrose recommendations in- cluded allowing the mini-budget to be fully debated in the house, a commit- ment from the government to not delay the full budget past this September, for full information to be released on the state of Alberta’s finances before voting on the supply bill, and transparency in accounting so all capital expenditures are included. During the government’s first ques- tion period – containing a focus on the budget on June 16 – the official oppo- sition member had a chance to address his concerns publicly and question the NDP’s intentions regarding the interim mini-budget, which he says makes up 50 per cent of the government’s operat- ing costs. Joe Ceci, minister of finance, in turn referred back to the new budget that will be passed some time in the fall adding that Fildebrandt and other

members will then have the time to de- bate the actual budget in full. “Don’t worry, we are going to have a very detailed discussion about the bud- get and let me just say that that budget will be based on the principles that this government laid out to the people of Alberta in the last election,” said Pre- mier Rachel Notley at the legislature. “That’s what the government will in- clude. It will reflect those opinions, re- flect those principles, and reflect what the people of this province voted for.” When questioned about committing to a Sept. 7 deadline for introducing a new budget, Notley opposed the date, but said the budget would be revealed shortly after. She also opposed the Keystone Pipeline, and said the gov- ernment is evaluating the PC books, which will determine whether a com- prehensive investigation is necessary. “We certainly recognize that the pre- mier isn’t able to table a budget just yet and that’s sort of understandable, but it would be helpful for Alberta busi- nesses and Alberta families to actually know what direction the province is going and certainly to know what the financial plan is for the years ahead,” said Wildrose Party leader Brian Jean during question period. “We all know the premier isn’t planning on any cuts, so really the only budget questions are, which taxes are going to go up and how much new debt Albertans are go- ing to have to pay off in the future.” While emphasis was heavily placed on the provincial budget during the June 16 question period, Fildebrandt was more concerned about the sup- ply bill, as the year will be nearly over when the budget would receive ap- proval. Fildebrandt specifically took issue with the lack of information sur- rounding the $18 billlion mini-budget and felt ratepayers deserved at least 50 per cent of the details involved. Fur- thermore, the lack of cooperation he’s received thus far has raised red flags. “It’s very concerning and frankly quite disappointing, because we’re try- ing to do opposition differently,“ he said. “We are trying to be helpful and to propose constructive solutions rather than merely opposing everything. It’s discouraging that at least thus far that they have not been particularly open to suggestions outside of their party. It’s still early, but if the NDP are con- sistently closed to constructive advice then we have to become more vocal.”

Solar powered toilet hopes to flush away high carbon future

ANDREA ROBERTS Times Contributor

Worthington Construction has creat- ed two prototype solar toilets that will be part of creating a low-carbon future, as the toilets will soon go into testing. The toilet was originally built to be part of the company’s low-carbon in- dustrial facility in Standard. “We talked for a few years about developing a place with minimum im- pact,” said Mike Worthington, engineer and owner of Worthington Construc- tion. “We built a shop and it is powered by solar energy. We needed a toilet. We got looking into it and there is really no product like it.” So they made their own. The semi-portable toilet has all the luxuries of an electrically powered toi- let. It has lights, heat and water while rainwater is collected and filtered for hand washing. It uses solar PV panels to convert the solar energy into elec- tricity, and solar evacuated tubes. Waste material from the toilet is treated inter- nally in the unit. While the toilet was only going to be for the shop Tom Jackman, president and CEO of Simple Solar, who helped with the unit, pointed out there may be a market for the toilet. Jackman got Worthington in touch with SAIT to help with marketing research. This helped to get the ball rolling. The company has been working closely with SAIT to plan for the toilet and its eventual introduction into soci- ety. Other than the marketing study the students helped to develop a business plan, as well as an instrument to help with testing. As the two prototype toilets enter their testing phase data will be collect- ed and analyzed by the SAIT students. The first prototype is fitted with sensors that will measure different information

The solar toilet built by Worthington Construc- tions will soon go into testing to see how well it runs in Alberta’s winters and to receive pub- lic feedback. The public is invited to come view the unit on June 25 at the Standard Community movie night.

for the analysis and feedback will vol- untarily be given from users and the toilet’s operators. One toilet is an industrial model that will be used in the oil and gas or con- struction industries. This one will prob- ably go to a construction site in Cal- gary and they will see how it fares in a tougher environment. The other will be for commercial use and will most likely go to a golf course in Edmonton. The field test will see how people enjoy us- ing the toilet and how it fares in the middle of winter in Alberta. Worthington has many hopes for the toilet and its place in helping to create a low-carbon future. Along with creating a toilet that runs on alternative energy, Worthington hopes that it will help the community of Standard. They will even- tually offer work terms for SAIT stu- dents as well as providing work experi- ence to students from Standard. “So what we are looking at doing is how to grow our corporation without increasing our environmental footprint. How do we create a corporation that can prosper in a low-carbon economy?” The public is invited to come view the unit on June 25 at Standard com- munity movie night.

With a high demand for the services, in places like Chestermere, Okotoks, Cochrane, High River, and Brooks, the organization felt it was time to see what could be done in Strathmore. “We have been providing outreach services for two or three years and feel there may be a greater need,” said Nancy Risdon, Foothills Immigration Settlement Coordinator who specializes in the Strathmore Division. “We also aim to be more involved in the com- munity of Strathmore to promote our services to the area.” Some of the services offered include Cultural Diversity Workshops and Community Organiza- tions which are available for those that want to learn about what it is like working with people

from different cultures. “The target population is permanent residents to Canada, however we also work with refugees and temporary foreign workers to connect them to community resources as needed,” said Risdon. “These workshops can be tailored to suit the request of the organizations.” The society is still looking for more people to help build up Strathmore’s volunteer base. The Strathmore division will only be appoint- ment based. To book one you can reach them at (403)-938-4699 or fcisokotoks@ccis-calgary.ab.ca. The meetings will take place at the McBride Ca- reer Group here in Strathmore at 227 3rd Avenue on Wednesdays, depending on when appoint- ments are scheduled.

Alysa Glenn’s final project a celebration of healing

LAUREEN F. GUENTHER Games Coordinator

Alysa Glenn, who played Helen Keller’s mother in Rosebud Theatre’s Miracle Work- er, performs her Final Project, June 26-29, culminating four years at Rosebud School of the Arts (RSA). This show celebrates a personal victory. “I’ve struggled with depression and anxi- ety for most of my life,” Glenn said. “There were years where I believed that I would never ever, ever be able to live a regular life.”

The arts were her escape. “Playing trumpet, and then trying a com- munity theatre and being in performanc- es,” she said, “really started to bring me back to life in a different way. It started to heal my heart.” She enrolled in RSA, planning to stay a year – but wanted to quit after her first week. After the first semester, she drove home for Christmas, and “I looked at my- self in the rear-view mirror of my car and my eyes were all puffy and I was gaunt and I was just so tired, but there was this sparkle in my eyes.” She told herself, “You

did it! You did it!” With new purpose, she finished the year and began to consider the future, where she’d live and what she’d do. “Those are things that I never allowed myself to think ahead to before,” she said. Four years later, she’s still there, and will soon graduate as a Fellow of Rosebud School of the Arts. “I’ve accomplished things I never thought

I could do,” she said. “My whole time here

I’ve struggled really, really significantly with depression and anxiety – but I’ve been able to continue through it, whereas

before, it would take me out at the knees.

I needed to share something about mental

illness.” For her Final Project, she couldn’t find the right script - so she had to write it. “Deciding to do this project with my own story was a huge awareness and a start to acceptance,” she said. It was also scary. She tried to quit, but director Deanne Bertsch and co-creator Conrad Belau wouldn’t let her go. “They were too invested in me and I love them for that, ” she said. If I was a Fairy Tale Princess, I Think I’d Be Sleeping Beauty is about Poppy, who “represents my heart and my imagination and my inner child, who’s full of life, full of light,” Glenn said. A shadow character named Doubt “covers the smile on (Pop- py’s) heart.” Poppy is “entertaining and funny with- out trying,” Glenn said. “It’s like getting a glimpse into watching a child play with her imagination in her room by herself.” As she rehearses, Glenn celebrates ongo- ing healing. “The more that I start to name these things and the more that I accept them into my life … the more compassion I have for myself,” she said. “We’ve all had demons in the dark.”

She hopes we’ll see ourselves in Poppy’s story, and that it moves us toward accep- tance of mental health issues. “If I can touch one person and have them say, ‘Oh, if she can talk about it, I can too,’ then it will be worth it,” she said. She performs If I were a Fairy Tale Prin- cess, I Think I’d be Sleeping Beauty in Rosebud’s Community Hall, June 26 at 7 p.m., June 28 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and June 29 at 7 p.m. E-mail goldenhourtickets@gmail.com for tickets.

Crime Day!

Constable Mike Brown stands together with students in a mock crime scene at Sacred Heart Academy on June 8. The crime scene was part of the Grade 6 Crime Day. Three Calgary police officers and a Fish and Wildlife officer came out to give insight about their jobs while teaching the students how to prop- erly assess a crime scene and evidence. There were four crime scenes throughout the school where the students had to bag and tag evidence while they took notes on the crime scene.

Investigation ongoing into fatal collision

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

A multi-vehicle collision resulted in

the death of a teenager and left others

in hospital last week.

Emergency services, including Strath- more RCMP and STARS, attended to the crash at the intersection of HWY 791 and HWY 1 on June 9. The incident oc- curred at approximately 4 p.m. after

a northbound vehicle was struck by

an eastbound vehicle, while proceed-

ing onto HWY 1 after having stopped

at the stop sign. A secondary collision

followed when a second eastbound ve-

hicle collided with the first eastbound vehicle. “The increase of traffic at numer- ous intersections along HWY 1, has increased the potential for serious in- jury collisions and we’re reminding the public to be cautious when they come

to any intersection and insure that their

movements are done in safety to pre- vent any further harm coming to any- body else,” said Cpl. Chris Hrynyk, with the Strathmore RCMP detachment. “When you have numerous people that are young coming from that high school that are inexperienced drivers it adds a different complexity to the inter- section as well.” While all occupants with injuries were treated and have since been re- leased from the hospital, a 17-year-old male from Chestermere who was in the first eastbound vehicle succumbed to his injuries. Alcohol was not a factor in the events; however, speed is still being investigated. Strathmore RCMP and the collision analyst continue to investigate with intersection and driver attention as a focus. While charges may be laid as a result of the investigation, RCMP will provide an update upon receiving further information.

Therapy Dogs come to Strathmore senior homes

JUSTIN SEWARD

Times Reporter

When Del Craig moved to Wheat-

land Lodge, she knew some things

had to be left behind and one of the most important things was being a pet owner. But that was until a volunteer-based organization, Chestermere Therapy Dogs Society gave Craig and other se- niors the opportunity to be reunited with pooches once again. For Craig, a Lab crossed with an Australian Cattle Dog named Nike has restored her sense of ownership. “When we come into a place like this, we give up our dogs and cats, so having a pet to talk to and pet, it’s fantastic that they do that, said Craig, who owned German Shepherds and Boxers previously. “Nike is the most impressive and she backs up when you tell her to and lies down and kisses you, a beautiful well-trained dog and you give her a cookie every time.” The society launched 17 months ago, but only recently began bring- ing the dogs to the Wheatland Lodge and the Sagewood Seniors facility in Strathmore. The Visiting Tails program, which sets out to improve a senior’s way of life by strengthening their mental and physical health, is one of three initia- tives currently offered by the organi- zation. Listening Tails is a six-week pro- gram that aims to help kids improve their reading skills, while Caring Tails focuses on helping people who have experienced a traumatic event or stress in their lives. Once Visiting Tails took off in two senior homes in Calgary, Steven King,

president of the organization, decided to expand the program into surround- ing areas. “I just approached the facilities there and they were actually delighted to have our dogs come in there and visit with the seniors and all the posi- tive stuff that comes with dog visits with seniors,” said King, a dog trainer himself. “We’re able to sort of fill that void for them and there’s something about the dog having this amazing ability just to home in what the seniors need.” Wheatland Lodge activity coordina- tor, Janice Pedersen, is thrilled to have the therapy dogs come to the facility because she feels it’s a great alterna- tive for the resident to have that posi- tivity around them. “It’s nice to have friendly critters come and enjoy the visit with them. It is a good therapy and it brings good memories,” said Pedersen. “It enlightens everyone, especially those that spend more time in the rooms and [are] not very comfortable being out in a public crowd.” Pedersen added that it is important to have these sessions and is planning to have them more regularly in the fu- ture. For King, the hope is to have all the programs in place in Strathmore in the next year. The plan would include working with organizations such victim ser- vices but according to him, currently there is quite a bit of protocol and po- lice checks. The Chestermere Therapy Dogs Society is currently looking for more dogs to get involved in the Strathmore area. If interested contact (587) 581-5571 or visit their website at www.ctds.ca.

Times Reporter
Standard’s Kristen Moncks has seen a lot of suc-
cess in her volleyball career but it was raised to a
whole new level when she was chosen to represent
Team Canada at the International University Sports
Federation games in South Korea.
The rising star ended her Canadian Interuniver-
sity Sport (CIS) career off with a Canada West title
and a national championship this past season with
the Trinity Western University Spartans.
“I’ve been out here for three years and this was
my last year and it’s been incredible,” said Moncks.
“Being able to end my three years with two gold
medals was pretty amazing. It was definitely re-
warding.”
Other achievements included Rookie of the Year
at Medicine Hat College while she also broke the
ACAC volleyball dig record in the same year.
In her second year she was awarded the ACAC
All Canadian, followed by the CanWest Libero of
the Year.
She is hoping to transfer these accomplishments
into helping Team Canada win gold.
“I’ve put a lot of hours into volleyball, that would
be a big factor,” said Moncks. “My passion for the
game, I think that shows through my play and can
help me at this level.”
Team Canada has assigned her to be either a li-
bero or a defensive specialist and she is looking
forward to that challenge against top players.
Moncks said the attention to detail will be a lot
different than what she is used to at the CIS level.
“I can’t just get away with doing my everyday
thing and I think you can’t make the little mistakes
that you can get away with in the CIS,” said Moncks.
Once the games get underway, Moncks said it
will all come down to who can perform under
pressure and that will determine who will win the
matches.
She will have some familiarity with her Spartan
coach being on the staff – that will help her settle
in on the court.
“My coach, Ryan Hofer, he’ll be a rock for me
personally on the bench just because he was my
coach for CIS,” she said.
Moncks said she is fortunate to receive the tre-
mendous support from the small town and would
not be where she is at now without it.
“The support from a small town is incredible,”
said Moncks, who is currently working with an
agent to possibly play professionally overseas next
year.
Spartans coach and Team Canada assistant Ryan
Hofer said that with Moncks’ great personality and
her hard work and dedication, she will have no
problem adapting to the international game.
“She’s an amazingly hard worker and has the
drive and passion to be the best she can be,” said
Hofer. “When you put those things together and
you’re just in the gym everyday enjoying it because
she’s wanting to achieve the best she can do.”
He had no second thoughts about relying on her
for key plays during matches all year.
“If you look back to the National Champion-
ship win, the plays that she made, the energy she
brought and the skill execution that she contrib-
uted was huge in helping us win a championship,”
said Hofer.
The games will take place in South Korea from
July 3-14.
The Strathmore Venom junior B lacrosse team is sitting
comfortably in a playoff spot with only six games remain-
ing in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League’s regular sea-
son.
Head coach Mike Olver has been quite pleased with the
team’s play in the last five games, including a 13-9 win
over the Lacoka Locos on June 14 at the Strathmore Fam-
ily Centre.
“Our better players played really well today and some
of the players that don’t get as much time were out there
and they played real well too,” said Olver. “Our goaltend-
ing was fantastic today, it all starts in our end and we were
real strong defensively. We have plenty of goal scorers, I’m
not worried about the goal scoring, it’s sometimes in our
own end.”
He was impressed with the fact that the Venom’s de-
fense was able to hold a couple of the Locos big guns to
one goal.
“The one guy, that’s very good, and he got one goal
today, we did what we wanted to against him,” said Olver.
The reason the Venom were able to keep up to them
was because of their speed.
Olver added the key to success for the boys is to play at
even strength or by having the man advantage and having
a strong penalty kill.
“Our penalty killing has been phenomenal the last four
or five games,” said Olver.
“One of my assistant coaches, he made a change on the
PK and it’s awesome. So that’s been a great thing for our
team, that’s helped starting to win more games.”
The team’s health has been a strength for most of the
season and that is why there have been a consistent num-
ber of players in the line-up.
“I’ve had 18 runners almost every game,” said Olver.
“That’s a strong point for us because we don’t get as tired.”

Tri-Smore time!

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

Upon the increased participation, the Tri-Smore triathlon is introducing a new component to the event this year. New this year will be the Mega Smore which will add distance to the track for those that want more of a challenge in their races. “It’s the Olympic Distance, which is

a 1.5 km swim, a 40 km bike and a 10 km run,” said Nicola Johnson, event organizer. The reason they added the Mega Smore is because of it being the fifth year of the event and they wanted to add a fifth distance. She added that the difference would be the length in the pool, where some athletes will do it in 28 minutes while others will take 45 minutes. She said that there are some loose ends to tie up before the event gets un- derway. “We could use a few more volunteers, we’re short about four,” said Johnson. The field will be around 400 partici- pants and will have a lot of provincial flavour to it. “We’ve got them from Banff, Edmon- ton, Pigeon Lake, Medicine Hat, Fort MacLeod, Lethbridge, Brooks, lots of little places in between, and lots from Calgary and Strathmore,” said Johnson. She wanted to give shout out to one of the participants who will be racing this year. “We have a 79-year-old lady doing it this year from town,” she said. “She called me up, she was so cute, because she wanted to register but she had to register over the phone because she had no computer. She turns 80 the week afterwards and this is what she wanted to do for her 80th birthday.” The deadlines have passed for regis- tration but if a racer were to show up

on June 19 between 6 p.m and 8 p.m. at the Strathmore Civic Centre then John- son will find a spot for the participant. The fee for kids is $20 and an adult

is $60.

The event will commence at 8 a.m. on June 20 and will conclude by 1 p.m. If you want to volunteer you can con- tact Johnson at (403) 480-1218 or fol- low the link on www.tri-smore.com.

Rock ‘n Ride rollin’ into Strathmore

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

The Strathmore Youth Club is hosting their first annual Rock ‘n Ride for BMX and skateboard- ing enthusiasts, encouraging youths to engage in more community events, and shinning a light on the sport’s positive features. The event will feature clinics that are put on by Calgary-based BMX Gallery and Calgary Associa- tion of Skateboarders Enthusiasts (CASE). Youth Club Program Director, Shannon Zieman, knows this activity will highlight the skate park’s positive aspects. “Ultimately our decision to hold the event is based on trying to get the larger community more awareness of the skate park and who goes to the skate park and make it not such a negative stereo- type attached to it,” said Zieman. “Let people see that the Youth Club and skate park are positive places. It’s a good place for par- ents to go with young kids and make it more of a

positive atmosphere.” She expressed that parents should realize that not all youths are troubled and a sport such as skate boarding is not always negative. The event is open to all ages and all ability lev- els. “Basically the workshops are basic intermediate and more advanced and that’s not based on age,” said Zieman. “Our whole point would be to see some parents actually doing a workshop with their kids. That ideally would be a neat thing to see.” Festivities on the day will include food trucks, a panel of local judges and a bike safety course. There will also be the opportunity to tour the Youth Club. Any proceeds from the lunch and canteen will go to the Outreach section of the Youth Club. The Rock ‘n Ride will take place on June 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the skate park in front of the Youth Club. Registration is free and lunch will be provided.
