It was a phone call no parent wants to receive. At 2 p.m., while


on his way to a funeral last week, a local businessman received
a chilling phone call from his son seconds after he fled the Bataclan Concert Hall in Paris, where a Jihadist gunmen continued to
indiscriminately massacre concertgoers on Nov. 13.
The well-known family, who asked to remain anonymous for
the safety of their son, were left numb when their son called to
say he was safey and describe the scene.
The born-and-raised Strathmore native ended up in Paris when
the flight he was piloting was rerouted from another destination
to the French capital. With time to spare on his layover, he decided to attend a concert by American rock band Eagle of Death
Metal concert.
Yet, the fun-filled night soon turned sinister, when the sounds
the crowd of 1,500 fans thought were fireworks turned out to be
gunshots. The former Strathmore resident, who does not live in
Canada currently, described to his father that he hit the ground
when the person standing next to him was fatally shot. Stacked
on top of one another, a chance happenstance where the gunmen

turned their attention away for a moment allowed the pilot to flee
the concert hall, running several blocks to safety with only one
thought on his mind his family.
He was quite overcome at the time and said they were just
shooting people, his father said. He had considered just playing dead like everyone else, but that wasnt stopping them. They
were just indiscriminately shooting at people and he said as he
was running to the door, he was expecting to feel a bullet in his
back. He said, he truly thought in his mind, this was it, that that
was the end.
The Bataclan Concert Hall was one of several locations, including the Stade de France football stadium and a number of cafes
and bars, in Paris that fell victim to the frightening attacks. While
the Strathmore survivor was among those fortunate enough to
escape unscathed, 89 concertgoers at the hall perished that night.
Since then numerous locations in France have been dedicated to
mourn the losses of loved ones totalling 129 deaths and 349 injured as a result of the attacks.
You never think those types of things touch us here in little old
Strathmore, the father said. I dont want to ever, ever, come this
close to losing a child again. It was a little too close.

Friends of East Wheatland want countys commitment


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Friends of East Wheatland are looking for a capital fund commitment for
the next four years from Wheatland
County to help cover costs of the new
fitness centre and gymnasium.
The proposal is asking for Wheatland
County to provide $250,000 in 2015
to aid in infrastructure of the gymnasium, followed by $125,000 from 2016
to 2019 to help in the expansion of the
fitness centre.
If they do that and we can start
meeting with architects, obviously we
can start making some financial commitments to build a fitness centre, said
Greg Lendvay, member of the Friend of
East Wheatland Society. On opening
day well actually hopefully be able to
get in the ground on the fitness centre. Were still at least a year out from
today. Thats bare minimum if everything went well. We need that amount
of time to start planning and applying
for grant money to ensure we have the
right equipment, the right technology
in place and programming.

Friends of East Wheatland have a vision for the new school that includes
competing with the top schools in the
province for rural education and providing a multi-purpose facility beyond
classroom hours.
Wed like to make sure there is an
academic component for our students
but also a benefit to the community
at the same time, said Greg Lendvay,
Friends of East Wheatland Society
member. Thats just a wave of the future. There are such high expenses and
buildings sit empty outside of 9 a.m. to
3:30 p.m. academic programming. Its
community and tax-based supporting
schools. Theres a huge advantage of
having a community and in particular
seniors involved in your school.
Lendvay added that all the kids are
going to be bused to the school, and
in effort to accommodate the student
upon arrival at the school there needs
to be a set regime of fitness and gymnasium components to keep kids busy
at lunch hours.
Wheatland County Chief Administrative Officer, Alan Parkin, said staff will
have to evaluate everything.

We will take a close look at the budget, said Parkin. We will evaluate any
possible funding scenarios and provide council with recommendations so
they can make the decision. There is
no decision at this time.
Parkin expects the issue to be
brought back before council in December.

Well Make You

In September, Strathmore RCMP


conducted the first part of a vehicle door
check campaign to increase awareness
of property crime. It was found that
23% of the vehicles checked were left
unlocked overnight. In October, the
RCMP conducted a second set of door
checks and found that 22% of vehicles
were left unlocked. However, statistics
show that from September to October,
thefts from motor vehicles were down
from 11 to 8, while thefts of motor
vehicles were dropped from 22 to 9.
Strathmore RCMP would like to
encourage residents to remain vigilant in
locking doors and keeping property safe.
As always, please report and crimes or

Capsule Comments
We hear much about bowel cancer in the media
lately. Those in the under 50 age group often dont
pay too much attention to this information because
somehow bowel cancer is thought of as an old
persons disease. Bowel cancer can affect about
20% of people under 50. So if you have abdominal
pain, blood in your stools or notice a change in your
bowel habits, see your doctor.
As of January 2016, Health Canada is introducing
changes in the labeling of ho-meopathic nosodes.
These are being sold as an alternative to vaccinations.
There is no evidence they work to protect against
diseases and in fact will make children more
susceptible to disease if they are not being vaccinated.
Speaking of vaccinations, measles is starting to rear
its head again. Stats Canada reported that 89% of
2-year olds had received the recommended number of
immu-nizations agains measles, mumps and rubella
in 2013. For best protection of Ca-nadians, this
number should be 95% to prevent any outbreaks from
occurring.
Ensure your children received all the recommended
vaccinations.
The words herd immunity describes the ideal
number of individuals in a given population who
have immunity, through vaccination or previous
exposure, to con-fer protection to those who arent
immunized. This herd immunity will prevent a
contagious bacteria or virus from setting up a chain
of infection.
If you have any questions about immunization,
check with our pharmacists. We have the reliable
information to keep you well-informed.

REMEMBERING OUR ROOTS ~ Gordon and Lorraine Stangness


JOHN GODSMAN
Times Contributor
Gordons grandfather was
born in Kvaernes, Norway
in 1842. His father Nels was
born there in 1899, and
sailed to Ellis Island, New
York in 1922, then traveled
overland to join other family
members who already lived
in the Carseland area.
Initially, he stayed with

his brother Ole and family


at their farm. Nels married
Leona Christensen in 1930,
and started farming in the
Cairnhill district, just south
of Cairnhill School.
Gordon was born in 1944,
at the family farm. The last
born of five sons and one
daughter, he attended school
at Carseland from Grade 1
to Grade 12, then became a
farm labourer for a couple

Thought for
the Week
~
As you begin
to live more
seriously
within, you
begin to live
more simply
without

of years, before moving to Fort


McMurray as an apprentice electrician. Unfortunately, two of his
brothers were killed by a train
in dense fog near their farm, and
Gordon had to come home to
help his father run the farm.
His mothers family emigrated
from Denmark to Cedar Falls,
Iowa in the late 1800s. Leona
was born there in 1909, the
fourth eldest of twelve children.
This family moved to the Carseland area in 1912, and began
farming.
Lorraines paternal family
originated in Holland. Her father
Johannus Vermunt sailed from
Hamburg, Germany to Halifax,
N.S. on the Empress of Scotland
in 1924. He crossed Canada by
train to Castor, where he worked
as a blacksmith and farm hand
before working for The Calgary
Brewing and Malting Company
in Inglewood, South East Calgary. He married Madeleine
Fortier, a teacher in a one-room
school in Baintree, in 1942, the
same year that he purchased the
Rosebud Hotel. Six years later,
they moved to Strathmore and
bought the King Edward Hotel.
After raising their children to
school age, Madeleine returned
to teaching for the next 23 years,
at Samuel Crowther School. Her
family has been traced back to
the 1700s, when they arrived in
Quebec from France. Lorraine
was born at the Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, in 1949, the second of two children. She has an
older brother Raymond, living
in Calgary. Lorraine took all her
schooling at Samuel Crowther
through Grade 12, then worked
at The Royal Bank of Canada in
Calgary until she married Gordon in 1968. They had met at a
dance in Cheadle the previous

year. They have four sons - Greg


(Anita) a draftsman in Calgary,
who has provided them with
grandchildren James (Taryn),
Ryan, Zach, and great-grand
daughter Addie; Brad, a Civil Engineer working in Calgary, with
grandchildren Jacob and Katelyn (she was the first girl born
to the Stangness family in
72 years);
S h a w n
(Deanna)
a
Civil Engineering Technologist employed
at
Cenovus,
grandchildren
Ryleigh
and
Grayden; and
fourth son Tyler employed
at Recall Calgary, a company that provides document
management and data production services.
Gordon, Lorraine, and Gordons brother Bill, purchased
the family farm from their father
in 1969. Bill lived with them
until 1977, when he moved to
Strathmore to live with his parents, leaving Gordon and Lorraine to actively farm until 1992
when they rented out the land
until 2013. In the early 1970s,
Lorraine joined the original
Strathmore Farmers Market
(started by Edie Groves) held in
the Strathmore Armories which
were located where the Marigold
Library building now stands on
Second Street. Between 1978
and 1995, they both worked
off farm - Lorraine at the Royal Bank, then at Western Feedlots, while Gordon was busy
building Brentwood School, the
Carseland Water Tower, running

a packer at the gas plant, and


trucking for Western Feedlots.
In 1985, Lorraine started quilting, then in 1989 started her
own company - Country Creations, designing and publishing
books and patterns on quilting.
For the next 15 years, she and
Gordon traveled extensively in
Canada and
the United
States,
exhibiting
at
shows and
teaching.
They opened
a quilt shop
at their farm
in 1996 that
ran until August
2013
when they
moved
to
Strathmore.
Following
their move into town, they became involved with volunteering at the Strathmore United
Church Thrift Sales, the Christmas Hamper Society, other charitable organizations, and more
recently the Alberta 55 Plus Senior Games.
When their family was growing up, they were both involved
with everything the boys participated in, be it 4-H, hockey or
whatever.
When I enquired what changes they had seen or remembered
- they both remembered the day
natural gas arrived, the CPR
tracks and station, the elevators,
and gravel streets with board
walks. Now, almost all gone!
They recalled having to watch
what mischief they were involved in, because with a population of only 700 people everybody soon knew what theyd
been up to!

Junior Achievement celebrates


TRISTAN PERIARD
Regional Program Coordinator for Junior
Achievement Southern Alberta

During the month of November Junior Achievements SouthEast Prairie Region, along with our
Regional Partner Crescent Point Energy will be
participating in Financial Literacy month by bringing its popular financial based programs to students at the schools in your community.
Dollars with Sense, Economics for Success and
Business Basics provide increased knowledge and
awareness of personal financial literacy skills for
students from Grade 5 10.
Financial Literacy Month is an opportunity for
Canadians to participate in many of the financial
literacy activities and events throughout our communities. Programs, services and tools are made
available to help Canadians improve their knowledge, skills and confidence in making informed
financial choices for themselves.
Junior Achievement programs provide students
an opportunity to begin thinking about their current personal finances and planning their financial
futures, said Tristan Periard, JAs Regional Program

Coordinator. Aligning some of our program deliveries with Financial Literacy Awareness Month was
a great opportunity to create further awareness of
financial literacy to our youth.
She added JAs programs are delivered by volunteers in the community who share similar values
in ensuring our youth are financially educated. We
will reach over 250 students in November. We have
10 JA programs registered with schools in Chestermere, Beiseker, and Strathmore participating.
Junior Achievement of Southern Alberta is a
non-profit organization providing programs to students in Grades 5 12 to educate and enhance
their skills in business, financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship.
JA Programs in the Southeast Prairie Region
are delivered and funded by volunteers and businesses throughout the regional communities of
Strathmore, Chestermere, Langdon, Beiseker and
Standard.
For the third year, they are pleased to welcome
Crescent Point Energy as Contributors of JA in all
of the Regions of Southern Alberta, providing financial support for materials for the students and
volunteer training.

Fule for Thought
Theres nothing like being a high school teacher
and going for groceries. I dont get to be very anonymous, and sometimes the kids make shopping a real
adventure. Im not going to tell you which grocery
store I was at, because I dont want the boys (or
girls) to get in trouble.
However, I was in the Dairy section and was reaching for a jug of milk. Two parka clad worker guys
yelled boo! at the same time! I almost dropped the
jug, and for a moment, had to think if Id wet myself
a bit!
Well played, boys well played, I told them.
What wouldve really added to it, would be you guys
trying to pull me into the fridge!
Crap I had given them an idea for next time!
A while back, we had gone to my daughters with
our old dog, Brodie. As usual, he was a hit, and he
roamed from room to room hanging out. Thats when
I saw him in the Beer Pong room! Hes pretty low to
the ground with a Brown and White belly that obviously hangs lower. The problem was, that there were
some spilled beverages under the table where he
waddled, and we watched as his wet paw prints led
out to another room. Great, I thought.
You guys know that hes going to get drunk if he
licks his paws tonight! You see, he has a nightly ritual
where he does just that he licks his paws before he
groans once and falls asleep on our bed. I could picture it now hed lick his paws, and Id have a drunk
dog on our bed! Then wed also wind up with the only
15-year-old hung over dog in Strathmore!
Speaking of parties we roasted Deb for her 50th
birthday last week. It was great fun, mainly because
Debbie hates to be embarrassed. And anyone who
knows me, knows that I love to embarrass her! I talked about things in history from 1965, and got on to
the topic of top TV shows of 1965.
The top shows were Get Smart, I Dream of Jeannie,
and a Western called The Big Valley, I said. Thats
also my nickname for Debs cleavage! That got a big
laugh, and it mortified Debbie, so Mission Accomplished!
That night while I was the DJ for Karaoke, I got
to see and hear many singers! We even named one
Cindy Lou and the Shacks!
They did some mean Abba, but as each singer came
up, I could feel something was wrong. On my upper
lip, a huge cold sore was growing! Each time I went
to the bathroom, it seemed to be bigger, and I could

actually feel the tingling of it spreading! By Monday,


at school, it had become the biggest cold sore Id ever
had. Of course, some high school kids dont always
have a filter for their thoughts becoming words. At
the start of Grade 11 English, one said Holy crap, Mr.
Fule thats the biggest cold sore Ive ever seen!
Why, thank you Bob Im not sure everyone in
the class heard you, I replied.
So, after discussing cold sores and being told you
know, cold sores are a form of Herpes, Mr. Fule. You
might have herpes, and me saying, its not that kind
of Herpes, Einstein, I decided that since its so big, I
should name it!
Gary, my cold sores name is Gary, I stated to the
class. Of course, they wanted to know why I picked
that name. Well, Garys my brothers name. When I
was a kid, he could be really irritating, he was (at
times) a real pain, and he stuck around a long time, I
stated. So, we named him Gary.
Now Deb and I went to Banff for the weekend,
which is where I was born, and we played tourist.
We wound up at the Upper Hot Springs for a hot soak.
Debs always worried about how crowded the pool
can get, and she can get pretty freaked out. Of course,
I dont help her much!
You know, there are so many people in this pool,
its like a human soup! I said. yep, here we are
people losing skin cells, hair, God knows what, and
were floating in it.
That pretty much made her more grossed out, and
after a while, we left for a pub. After ordering, I went
to the bathroom. When I came back, I was a bit quiet.
Whats up? she asked.
You wont believe it, I said. Garys gone!
At first she thought I meant that my brother had left
for Mexico, but I told her the real truth. This is also
gross, as I had been the one losing skin cells the
remnants of Gary had somehow fallen off at the hot
pool! I was the gross one, and back there in that hot
pool of poor, unknowing people GARY was probably floating around! Im sorry, all you Banff touristy
people I didnt know that would happen! I felt like
a leper losing a leg, but then I thought, oh well, they
use enough Chlorine in that pool to kill a moose anyway. Bye Gary Im not gonna miss you!

This summer, the Canadian Rockies International Rodeo
and Music festival introduced Son of Ray who, as a newly
formed band, performed together for the first time.
On Saturday, the band will return to Strathmore, and strip
their music to showcase a folk sound rather than a rock feel.
When Calgary-based singer-songwriter Rob Lagace started
out as a one-man show, with a kick-drum, guitar, and harmonica, he attracted the attention of the Strathmore Musical
Arts Society during his performance at Rosebuds 15 Minutes

WHEN WE CAN

TAKE THE

WORRY OUT
OF WINTER

of Fame. Since then, the one-man show grew into a fourpiece band by adding guitar player Mike Fournier, bass player Bob Richardson, and drummer Jeff Towers. Yet when the
band returns to Strathmore, they will strip their sound back
to a kick-drum, harmonica, and brushes on a snare drum.
Were stripping it down to a little bit more of an acoustic
sounding set and thats just based on the venue were playing and what the Strathmore music group is looking for,
said Lagace.
We have a full band and having the ability to play different venues with a different sound is really a great thing,
because it allows us a lot more selection and availability for
these different kind of shows.
Lagace grew up surrounded by a musical family in Port
Colborne, Ont. With uncles, parents, and cousins always
singing and playing music, the transition into high school
band was an easy one for Lagace. Although he put music
on the backburner when he became a teacher, which he
continues to be, he quickly realized he wasnt pursuing his
passion. As a result, Lagace became a substitute teacher for
elementary schools and uses his free time to perform with
the band.
Music has just been a big part of my life for a long time,
Lagace added. I call it roots music. Roots music to me is
bringing music back to its roots and the traditional roots
music is folk and country and blues, and I feel like our music
really blends those three together. In my opinion its kind of
what early rock and roll was. Its bringing rock back to its
roots and having that traditional blend of country, blues, and
a little bit of funk and boogie to it.
Son of Ray will be performing at the Strathmore Golf
Course on Nov. 21 at 6 p.m. For more information and to

SHS presents Murder Inn


SABRINA KOOISTRA
Times Junior Reporter

Strathmore High Schools
(SHS) drama program will be
presenting a rendition of a
murder mystery titled Murder
Inn by Howard Voland and
Keith McGregor.
This production has multiple elements that have
pushed the actors and actresses to new limits through
the challenges of characterization. However, despite
this, director and teacher
advisor Paula Richardson is
confident that her students
will deliver in bringing the
script to life.
In the casts opinion, the
script has made them better
actors and actresses through
rehearsing and performing.
Theres a lot of direction
in the script which is a good
reason to do it which is good
for budding young actors,
said Rhett Dumonceau, a
professor in the production
from the drama 30 class. It
has an even mix of all sorts of
characters, genders, and personalities and so theres a lot
of opportunity to be creative
and adventurous.
Held in the SHS theatre,
these performances showcase a variety of personalities, intermingled themes,
and a talented amateur cast
from the drama 20, 30, and
35 classes.
The script features a murder mystery involving travellers desperate after a flood.
They are trapped for a few
days in an abandoned, rundown inn where numerous
brutal stabbings occur. The
question is, who is the malicious perpetrator?
Claire Webb, a tour guide
and tourist from the drama
20 class identified double
casting as her area of growth
within the production.
For me, its hard to do
both characters because I
have to switch between two
different mindsets, she said.
Dumonceau also encountered similar challenges in

depicting his character.


I think its sometimes difficult to portray a character
who is so much older than
myself, said Dumonceau. Its
hard to get the movements
right, the manner of speaking
right. Being 47, 50 (years old)
as opposed to 17 I feel like
the character suits me pretty
well, (though).
Even though the script
poses many obstacles for
the cast, Richardson feels
extremely proud of how her
cast is performing and publicizing the production.
The cast have been very
dedicated the students
have found their own costumes, done a great deal of
the set building, said Richardson. Madison Ferraton, a
cast member, drew our poster. Students are double cast
so they do not get as much
on-stage time as students
who are not and this can
be stressful, but they do not
complain.
Even though the actors and
actresses have identified various challenges that are pushing them as drama students,
its a very good story and
is something you can walk
away from having enjoyed
going to see it, Dumonceau
said.
There are a lot of characters so you can get everyone
involved with it and everybody can relate to in some
way, said Webb. And its
funny too.
Murder Inn will be playing in SHSs theatre at 7 p.m.
from Nov. 23-26. Tickets are
$10.
We have an amazing set,
great student acting to showcase and it will be fun for
the entire family, Richardson
said. Live theatre is so different from watching something
on a screen. The actors pick
up on the energy from the
audience, so the more audience members, the greater
the energy, the better the
performance. We hope to fill
the theatre to capacity every
show.

Rosebud students to perform Little Women musical


LAUREEN F. GUENTHER
Times Contributor

Rosebud School of the Arts brings
Little Women to the BMO Studio Stage,
opening Friday, Nov. 27.
The musical highlights the talents
of the six women who comprise the
schools second-year class.
Little Women is essentially about
these four young girls, these four sisters,
whove found themselves in turmoil of
war and this life where their dad is off
fighting, said Caitlyn OConnor, who
plays Jo March.
The story is set during the American
Civil War, between 1862 and 1865.
They really have to depend on each
other, but theyre all very, very different, she said.
Jo, the second oldest sister, wants to
be independent. She wants to be a writer and that wasnt a thing that women
did so much back then, OConnor said.
She has to choose between love and
work and writing, and family and writing.
Director Nathan Schmidt may have
cast her in the role because shes stubborn like Jo
( Jo) has a lot of stubborn bones in
her body and I think she struggles with

the need to be independent and she


gets angry a lot, said OConnor. Shes
very passionate and quite driven I
suppose I have a bit of that in me.
Stephanie Lanting plays Jos older sister, Meg.
Meg is more of the stereotypical
woman of that time, OConnor said.
Shes really focused on love and family
she really wants to love and be loved,
and to have family.
One of the funniest scenes in the play
is a ball scene where Meg gets sort of
undone.
Stephanie is just so good at being the
flustered and frustrated Meg whos also
in love and trying to impress the boy,
said OConnor.
Beth is the second youngest sister,
who really wants to be at home and to
be safe.
Beth is quite gentle, said OConnor.
Shes the peacemaker shes the one
who would love to just sit by a crackling
fire with her tea and her knitting, and
have all her family surrounding her.
Cassie Garbutt and Bethany Wickens
alternately play Beth, and each of them
brings an entirely different color and
flavor to the role, OConnor said.
I see a more driving Beth in Bethany.
(Beth) gets sick so shes physically weak

... but shes not weak-spirited. I see that


particularly when Bethany plays that
role. And I think Bethany really likes
to bring out the humor and the play in
Beth.
With Cassie Garbutt, on the other
hand, I find its easy to be more cuddly and just be more warm with her,
OConnor said.
Natalie Kloster and Maggie Mackenzie
alternately play the youngest sister, Amy.
Amy is more about being fancy and
beautiful and having nice things and going abroad to Europe, OConnor said.
Shes kind of a brat ... but Amy also
brings a lot of youthfulness to the story.
Mackenzie and Kloster are both very
good at being bratty and theyre both
very good at sort of having that young
energy, OConnor said. They both
bring a wonderful sweetness.
Theres just so many things packed
in there that are general parts of the human experience, that we can feel and

County looks to municipal shares for Gleichen plant


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Wheatland County Council had a long
discussion at the Nov. 3 regular council meeting about how to move forward
with funding for the new scoped water
project pipeline between Standard and
Gleichen through municipal shares.
Councilors accepted the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the
municipal sharing agreement with Standard to borrow $20 million to complete
phase one of the water project.
The scope change included $2 million going to the municipality from the
county, and $ 9 million to the pipeline
for a total of $11 million to change the
scope which originally intended to go
from Standard to Rockyford.
The corporation made a decision
that Gleichen uses the water first so that

change of scope had to happen with the


province, said councilor Rex Harwood.
What happen is we got funding from
the province. The province said heres
your money, do your upgrades, put your
pipeline to Rockyford. But then they
went uh oh, this isnt what we want. We
need this to go to Gleichen first.
Harwood, who was not present when
the decision was made, was uncertain if
it was a mistake on the application or a
decision that was made after. However,
he added, after approaching the province, the county was told a change in
scope was needed to include Gleichen
in the work that will commence in coming phases.
He mentioned there will be a municipal development phase where they will
be required to provide 10 per cent. He
also added that the municipal shares are
currently between $1.8 and $2.2 million.

The province will not fund a corporation, said Harwood. Thats why it
has to go through a municipality. The
province is funding it, but we want the
municipal shares to be paid through the
county. Hussar and Standard could not
afford that portion. Gleichen is obviously a hamlet the county controls, we
would have to pay that regardless.
Harwood said one plant in Gleichen
is roughly between $5-6 million and
the county could get all of their water
with their municipal shares for the same
price range.
Wheatland County Reeve Glenn
Koester put a motion on the floor that
the county will forfeit $750,000 to the
Wheatland Regional Water to facilitate
the costs of the Standard water treatment plant. The motion was passed.
Construction is expected to finish on
time next spring.

Inaugural Alberta Barn Hunt a success


serve the dogs abilities. More research about Min Pins revealed
that the breed was meant to
hunt rats and mice around the
home.
However, Min Pins were not
accepted into an American Kennel Club (AKC) Earthdog competition and unfortunately, Nuttalls
effort to get them in competition
went down the drain. She decided to create rules for a competitive sport for dogs, which
ultimately was passed, and now
any breed of dog can join the
event. The dogs must be able to
fit through an 18-inch by baleheight tunnel.
Smithdorf thinks that this a
good way for the dogs to show
their hunting capabilities because they are limited in many
places as to where they can
practice their skill.
I dont think there is a dog
who doesnt want to dig around
in the straw to look for a mouse,
said Smithdorf. Its inherent in
dogs to hunt and this gives them
an out, especially for the dogs
in the city who never get to run
around and dig around and look
for something. Its a really good

release for them. I dont think


theres a better dog to do this
than others.
However, the dog owners can
train their pooches senses with
a furry family pet so they can be
familiarized with what their task
will be at competitions.
Its natural for dogs to hunt
mice in Alberta especially and
gophers, she said. They have to
learn the scent of a gerbil. Thats
an ideal thing to start them on.
If youre kid has a pet gerbil at
home, get the bedding out, let
them smell it, let them know
this is what youre hunting.
Penalties include: grabbing
the dog by the scruff or grab
them with your fists; lifting your
dog off the ground before completing the race is an immediate
decision; releasing the dog before the judge said you can and
walking your dog out of the ring
leashless is a fail.
Earthdog Association of Alberta is hopeful to come back to
Strathmore in the near future.
Barn Hunt is growing in the
USA at quite a rapid rate and is
still hoping to expand in Canada
and other countries.

On Nov. 7, a sport called Barn
Hunt made its first appearance in
Alberta, in Strathmore, as it was
in the plans for eight months
prior to the event. The poochonly sport gives the dogs the
opportunity to use their hunting
senses to track down rodents in
hay bales.
The Strathmore Ag Society
was great to work with, so thats
why we came here, said Mary
Smithdorf, Performance of Earth
Dog Association of Albertas
president. Im just thrilled. The
volunteers had been wonderful, people just stepping up to
the plate, doing what needs to
be done. Id say about 90 per
cent of the people here have not
done this before. Some of them
have never seen it live.
Robin Nuttall, who had been
involved with dogs for 20 years,
originally started Barn Hunt. She
got her first dog, Zipper, who is
of a Miniature Doberman Pinscher (Min Pin) breed. Nuttall
was curious as to what Min Pins
were bred for and decided to ob-

Local Rockyview Raiders players Ty Tarvyd (l-r), Isaac Benoit, Tyler Strath, Kelton Travis and Joel Krahenbil are taking the minor
midget program in stride to help their development along in their careers.

Local Raiders shine


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

For five Strathmore players on the Rockyview
Raiders minor midget team, playing against other
elite 15-year-olds have proved pivotal for furthering their development as individual athletes and
for a possible successful junior career.
Kelton Travis, who only two seasons ago was
playing bantam Tier 1 in Strathmore before going
to Westerns with the Rocky Mountain Raiders last
season, is now playing minor midget where he
hopes to bring a winning chemistry to the locker
room.
It definitely helps you develop as a player for
the next year when you get to play older kids, said
Travis. It gets you developed in those smaller corners and details of the game and to develop those
skills will help you further levels of hockey.
Forward Isaac Benoit thinks his style of play has
gone a long way in seeing results in the league.
This level is really fast, said Benoit. Ive always
been one of the fastest players. I try to improve my
other skills and my speed most of all. You have to
be aware of getting hit and teams in this league
are pretty rough, you have to be aware of that
and come back strong whenever we get knocked
down.
Benoit added that he would not be where he
is now without the guidance from coaches in the
Strathmore Minor Hockey Association.
Strathmore has always had good hockey, he
said. The double- A teams were really strong
when I grew up. (The) coaches helped me improve
to make this team.
He mentioned that minor midget is a good
league and gets them prepared for the next level
of midget and down the road in to junior hockey.
Ideally he would like to make the CFR Bisons or
get a crack at the Western Hockey League (WHL).
Ty Tarvyd, who was the goalie for the Wheatland
Warriors last season, has noticed there has been a
big difference in pace coming at him in the crease
compared to what he was used to at bantam level.
The play is a little quicker and shots are little
harder, said Tarvyd. Other than that its a step
up, reading the puck and reading the play is a bit

tougher. Guys are a little bit smarter at this level.


He thinks his strength between the pipes is talking and letting his teammates know what is happening on the ice, and he is known to have quick
reaction time going from side to side.
Im not a very big guy, but I use my speed to my
advantage, he said.
Forward Joel Krahenbil has noticed the guys in
this league are a bit stronger and faster, which he
thinks is a reason to be smarter with the puck because guys are bearing down quicker.
Its a great development league not just on the
ice but theres lots of time to work hard off the ice,
said Krahenbil.
The guys are faster, theyre stronger and make
more plays, so you got to be heads up all the time
and be ready to make a play.
Having gone to Westerns with the bantam tripleA Raiders out of Okotoks a year ago, he hopes to
bring in leadership and experience from that type
of atmosphere he experienced in knowing how to
win, and encouraging the guys to work harder.
Captain Tyler Strath has enjoyed digging into the
league with the pace of play that has helped him
work on the little areas of his game to be successful.
The skill level is more even, said the Lethbridge
Hurricanes prospect. There is a chance for players
to make it and its just a very even league and you
dont know whats happening next.
Raiders head coach and Strathmore product
Paden Grant thinks the local players have fit in
well and credits the fact that they have played together for so long to be effective.
They all know each other, said Grant. It wasnt
really a period of one from this town, one from the
other, they all get along and to be honest I have to
ask them where theyre from.
This group, they know how to win; theyve
done it before. I think just about everybody on this
team has won either at the double-A or triple-A
level. Its just making sure we go to work everyday.
Its not going to come easy for us.
The Raiders hosted the Prospects Cup last weekend and lost in a shootout in the quarterfinals to
the Edge School of Calgary.

Its been eight years in the making for Crowther
Memorial Junior High School senior boys volleyball
team, but they finally became champions after knocking off the Okotoks Ocelots in a thrilling three-set
finals match in the year-end zone tournament.
After finishing second place numerous times, including to the same Ocelots team a season ago, senior
boys volleyball coach Brad Huntley was excited for
the team to finally win the banner.
I was really excited for the boys, they earned it this
year, said Huntley. They deserved to win the banner
and for the game to end up that close makes it sweet,
but it also makes it stressful.
Huntley gave his squad credit for being mentally
engaged in the games, and combining that with every
aspect of the teams game, became the deciding factor
in winning gold.
Even though our serving game struggled, they
picked up their mental game, said Huntley. And
that way they just didnt fall out of the game. They
couldve but they stuck in there but beyond that, our
passing and setting was extremely good this weekend. Our offence was solid with some extremely hot
points where they were heating up and hitting like
high school hitters.
For the senior girls, being hosts on their side of the
tournament was more about team building and showing strides in improving their overall game.
It all came together of what weve been working on all season, said coach Lindsay Hall. They all
played strong in every game and we dont have a lot
of girls either. We had some injuries, girls away at
other sports. People stepped up, they did really good.

The Wheatland Warriors are starting
to find their rhythm after picking up a
pair of wins in their two games over
the weekend, as they continued to battle for top spot in an ultra-tight South
Division.
The guys are starting to come together and building a little bit of chemistry,
said head coach Cody Brown. I think
were taking a step in the right direction here. Everybodys kind of starting
to know where each other is out there
and were seeing a big difference.
In the 4-3 win over Okotoks, Brown
felt as though the team was able to capitalize at opportune times.
Our scoring right now is fairly spread
out, everybodys contributing and its
definitely paying off for us, he said.
Ben Kruse scored three goals to lead
the charge, while Kyle Bray added one
goal to round out the offense.
Brown added in the 8-2 win against
Lethbridge on Sunday was a prime example of what his team can do when
they play a full 60 minutes.
We have a lot of talent in the room

and I think the guys are really coming


together, said Brown. I think weve
got a great team and looking forward to
see how things go down the road.
Max Kathol led the way with three
goals, Mo Hakim notched two, while
Brandon Kasdorf, Anson McMaster and
Max Schafer scored in the rout over Lethbridge.
The local bantam double-A team will
hit the road for two games this weekend starting against the Foothills Bisons
on Nov. 21 at 4:30 p.m. before playing
Cranbrook on Sunday afternoon at 1:45
p.m.
Meanwhile, the Wheatland Braves
won their lone game of the weekend on
Friday, 4-2 over the Foothills Bisons.
Tristan Zandee scored two goals,
while Adam Kirkpatrick and Tegan Skehar added one each in the win.
The local double-A peewee team will
be on the road as well when they faceoff against the Central Alberta Selects
on Nov. 21 at 4 p.m. and will be in Red
Deer playing at 12:45 p.m. on Nov. 22.
The Wheatland Chiefs, who is in the
midst of a two week break, will be back
in action on Nov. 28 when they travel to
Okotoks.

Despite a 7-3 loss against the Edmonton-based SSAC
Athletics, the CFR Bisons coaching staff have seen a lot of
positives in the teams play and are hopeful it will lead to
more success in the future.
I really like how our team has been playing the last
little while, said Bisons assistant coach Dave Attwood.
We had a good weekend, that Showcase weekend, and
we continued to play good hockey into Fort Saskatchewan
(on Nov. 14). We ran into a team that was pretty rough and
tumble and it was a real battle. Were pretty happy to see
the boys work their way through that and find a way to
win that game by playing some good hockey.
Attwood added that the Bisons dominated the Rangers
in zonetime, which led to quality scoring chances in the
offensive end, and got strong goaltending when they were
in the defensive zone.
It was nice to see our scoring spread around to a
couple of lines, said Attwood. Weve been fortunate to
have our Haden line scoring a lot of goals for us. But this
weekend we were able to get others chipping in. Thats a
sign of our whole team game getting stronger.
Tyson Scott, Kyle Gordon and Liam Izyk scored in the
win.
Attwood thought, despite the loss to SSAC, it did not
hurt the boys to feel adversity and learn from it.
It didnt take much of a breakdown for them to capitalize on their opportunities, he said. I dont think the
boys got frustrated by it, they dont like losing, they found
themselves in a place that they didnt like a whole lot.
They responded, they made some changes and responded in a positive way and I think thats going to bode
well for us also in the future when we get ourselves in a
bit of a pickle, theyll take this experience and be better
for it.
Zach Vinnell, Tanner Foster and Zach Cox scored in the
loss.
The Bisons will return home to face the St. Albert Raiders on Nov. 21 at 5:15 p.m., while SSAC will be in town the
following day with puck drop going at 2 p.m.

JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Strathmore bull rider Scott Schiffner
made his 15th straight appearance at
Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) in Edmonton last weekend, competing as
one of the 12 riders for the top prize,
but unfortunately his rides were done
earlier than anticipated.
Schiffner won the second round, but
was injured in the later rounds. He
thought this years event was not the
best he has ever performed in.
It was not my best finals for sure,
said Schiffner.
I actually got injured in the fifth
round and couldnt compete in the
sixth round, which is the first time
thats happened to me where I havent

been able to compete on my bulls


there. Its always unfortunate because
youre out of the opportunity to win
money or it takes you out of the championship round.
The stock he rode was excellent
again this year because organizers select the best 42 bulls in Canada to saddle up on.
Every year it becomes more relaxed
up there, said Schiffner.
That being said every year were
there to win, 11 other guys and me are
there to win every time.
With winning a round, combined
with his season totals, Schiffner has accumulated a total of $33,720.24.
He will wrap up the season at Pro
Bull Riding Finals in Saskatoon this
weekend.

May 28, 1920


November 5, 2015
Born in St. John, NB, raised in Lethbridge, AB; worked briefly in the Crowsnest and
the remainder of his life in Calgary, AB. We didnt
always agree on everything, Dad, but knowing that
we were loved and that you knew that love was
returned meant so much. From us to you Dad:
daughter Georgia, son Mel, grandson Brett (Kelli),
granddaughter Sara (Jodie), great granddaughters
Brooklynn, Makenna, Brynn, Tegan and Chloe..
thank you. Survived also by sister-in-law Barb,
niece Kathy and nephews Brad, Ted and families.
Predeceased by his parents Harry and Georgina,
brother Jim and former wife June. Goodbye and
thanks to his Signature Park friends and staff, the
staff at Swiss Chalet, Sunterra, Smittys, Rockyview Hospital and most recently Chinook Care
Centre for your care, kindness and laughs.
A Meaningful Life
is not about being rich,
being popular, being highly
educated or being perfect.
It is about being real,
being humble, being able to
share ourselves and touch
the lives of others.
It is only then that we
could have a full,
happy and contented life.
Will miss our Flames/Stamps talks, Dad, but will
cheer them on..even more loudly now. Dads
attitude, sometimes to a fault, was that if you
couldnt give 110%, then dont do it. Once he
realized that his body could no longer do that,
he was done. He also knew how lucky he was
to have the family, friends and health that he did
have for 95 years. Dads quote for many years
was dont take any wooden nickels, but lately
was simply..anyway, meaning he had ended
a discussion or a visit. So, Dad..anyway from
all of us..love you, miss you..in our hearts always. Our Dad/Grandpa was cremated November
9, 2015. There will be a family gathering to scatter his ashes in the mountains at a future date.
