Council renews Canadian Badlands membership

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

Weeks of conflicting debates and persuasive arguments regarding the renewal of a Canadian Badlands membership were put to rest last week, when the majority of town coun- cil voted in favour of continuing to support Canada’s largest municipal partnership. The 63-member organization had billed the town at the end of last year with an invoice for the 2016 annual share- holder levy of $6,423 for membership renewal. The action sparked debate among councillors, some of whom felt the services provided by the Canadian Badlands failed to follow through on former promises and flopped in providing value for Strathmore’s dollar. In turn, administration was tasked to reach out to the Canadian Badlands, and councillors re- ceived clarification and explanation from the organization. Following discussions at the Jan. 27 regular council meet- ing, a number of local officials were convinced by the orga- nization’s pledges to address the council’s previous concerns regarding proper signage, Strathmore’s poor representation, the Canadian Badlands’ involvement, and lack of communi- cation. “I’ve come to see that there’s a huge value added,” said Councillor Denise Peterson. “The support for Canadian Bad- lands holds tremendous potential for our community and I think it’d be extremely short-sighted for us to not jump on board to do everything we could to nurture our own self interest and the interest of all the other communities that partner in the Canadian Badlands Tourism.” Peterson also referred to the estimated value of $160,000 brought into the community by the Canadian Badlands Tourism Conference, and the support provided to some local businesses, stating that Strathmore was one of five member communities equipped to handle the capacity to host the event. The Canadian Badlands also offered matching grant fund- ing to the maximum of $5,000 for signage on the periphery of the community to indicate their partnership with the Ca- nadian Badlands, and vowed to assist in creating a Desti- nation Marketing Organization (DMO) to find Strathmore’s tourism niche. “I don’t always engage in the discussions but I’m going to tonight, because I do support belonging to the Canadian Badlands and I think it’s important that we as a commu- nity be engaged with the Canadian Badlands Tourism,” said Mayor Michael Ell. “It really comes down to us making sure that we also en- gage with them. There are approximately four million tourist visitors that come to this area each year and they spend in the area in excess of $55 million. If we want a bigger share of that tourism dollar we have to also be engaged and go out there and grab it. If we’re not a member, we can’t grab it.” Yet some councillors remained unconvinced. Councillor Bob Sobol addressed the Canadian Badlands website stating that Strathmore’s amenities and hospitality sectors were not acknowledged.

Drew Gregory trail blazes his way to the top

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

From the birth of his son, to the anticipated release of his new album, Standard’s coun- try music artist Drew Gregory’s year became even more excep- tional when he took home the Male Artist of the Year award at the Association of Country Mu- sic in Alberta awards. Gregory, who picked up a guitar in high school and never put it down, was on his way back from the bathroom when his name was called at the ceremony on Jan. 31. “I think the cameras went to my table and I wasn’t even sitting there and I ran up the side,” said Gregory. “I was pretty excited to hear my name. I think I was in

a bit of shock and hardly remembered my speech until my wife taped it and showed it to me later.” The rising star, who resides in Strath- more, still works on the family farm in Standard and spends his weekends fo- cused on music. Growing up, Gregory remembered his family’s love for music; his father always had vinyl records spin- ning, and his mother’s radio could be heard in the background. The 31-year- old didn’t start playing an instrument until high school at which time he be- gan performing locally, despite never having received proper lessons. While his musical career didn’t take off until years later when he moved to Nashville, he never forgot his roots, reflecting on his upbringing in his songs. “Anyone who’s listened to my song would definitely know what I’m talking about as I sing about how I grew up,” he said. “I never took lessons or needed to be forced to play. It was something I gen- erally loved. I love making the music and song writing and being in the stu- dio, but the number one thing for me is the performing, have people listen, get into the audience, and create moments. That’s the big thing for me.” Gregory has performed at numer- ous events in Strathmore, including the Strathmore Stampede, at the Station, parties, and weddings. However, he

said he had never expected to win such a prestigious award. His manager Angie Morris also walked away with an award that night, and the band Dominos, who is the other band signed with Morris, also took home awards. Gregory still remains an active member of the local agricultural society, hockey, and base- ball team. Drew Gregory’s newest album, I Was There, will be released in early spring and focuses mainly on growing up in a small town and in Standard.

“I love the premise, I love the concept … and I can assure council that I have the utmost respect for the board and their vision and what they want to put together,” said Councillor Bob Sobol. “Unfortunately I don’t always see that followed up by the, and with respect, with the staff that they had working for them. We’ve had promises before. I’m looking for more than that and that’s been promised for years, and I’m disap- pointed with what has not been provid- ed, more than what has been provided by the Badlands.” Councillor Rocky Blokland agreed, adding that he felt he was given an ulti- matum last year to renew the member- ship in order to ensure the conference would remain in Strathmore. However, other councillors felt some of the onus reverted back to council and the notion of effective communica- tion. “I’m right on the fence on this one, right on the fence,” said Councillor Brad Walls. “Maybe some of it is for us to take blame, maybe it’s not. But one thing [president Barry Morishita] said to me was that he is

committed to communication better with us. Whatever happens here maybe we take a little more of an administra- tion approach and work harder trying to get this to where we want.” According to some council members, the $6,423 is a small price to pay to remain in a partnership with 63 other communities, grow Strathmore’s tour- ism industry and identity, work close- ly together with the organization, and gain the support for local businesses. In the end council voted in favour of approving the Canadian Badlands req- uisition for the full amount. Councillor Bob Sobol and Councillor Rocky Blok- land opposed the motion. Council- lor Steve Grajczyk was absent during the Jan. 27 council meeting.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) does save lives. For CPR to be effective, press one hand on top of the other in the centre of the patient’s chest and push down about 2 inches which forces the blood through the body before releasing then compressing again. For best effect, there should be 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Do you know how to do CPR? You could save a life. Drug researchers are using tissue chip technology to weed out ineffective and toxic drugs before human trials begin. These tissue chips are designed to emulate body organs in structure and function. These chips can be connected to each other so the effects of a new drug can be seen on the whole “body” before subjecting humans to the testing. It promises to speed up research and save time and money. In the U.S., a poisoning by prescription and non- prescription drugs send a child to the hospital every ten minutes. The most serious poisonings are caused by the opioids (morphine, codeine, oxycontin etc) and drugs for diabetes. Grandparents are to be particularly careful since they don’t have children around their homes continuously. Store your medications out of the reach of children. Want to make your own laxative? Mix together 2 cups of All-Bran® cereal, 2 cups of apple sauce and 1 cup of 100% prune juice. A couple of tablespoonsful once or twice a day will aid regularity. Knowledgeable, approachable, dependable….our pharmacists are all this and more. We’d be happy to fill your next prescription.

Rona staff excited for second annual charity bake sale

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

Last year, when Shelley Gieck walked into the Rona staff room, tears started streaming down her face with emotions running high at the unexpected sight of tables laden with homemade baked goods created by her peers. Gieck, who originally

concocted the idea of a bake sale to raise additional funds for the Hair Massacure fund- raiser and thus support chil- dren affected by life-threat- ening illnesses, is building on last year’s success by avidly labouring the point of the second annual bake sale among the current Rona staff members. With $1,400 already secured - collected

ficial campaign start date of Feb.

1, the bake sale racked up over

$900 last year; a portion which made up nearly one-third of the total funds raised for the Hair Massacure campaign. However, for 2016, the store has set its sights on greater ho- rizons. “I’m hoping to beat it and I harp and bug everybody, I’m doing a calendar and marking

off the days in February until we get to it,” Gieck said. “I feel that we are a good com- pany that supports the town and supports whatever fundraisers are going on and service clubs.

I know we’re a big sponsor at

the trade show on the rodeo grounds, and we’re in the pa- rade. But for me, our big fun- draiser for this, the Hair Mas- sacure event, is the bake sale.” It’ll be the second time Strath- more’s Rona will be hosting the bake sale and the fourth time participating in the campaign. The store has already begun selling the campaign’s pink hard hats, pencils, paper bears, and lollipops, while filling up their pledge sheets with proceeds be- ing donated to the Ronald Mc- Donald House and the Make a Wish Foundation. The $1,400 signals a healthy start to the

fundraising efforts, despite the repercussions of a struggling economy. With hopes of recreat- ing some of last year’s creations, including sparkling edible sti- letto shoes, and dessert that looks like burgers and fries, the staff aim to throw a curve ball at other Rona stores who, over the years, have turned the event

into a fundraising competition. In doing so, Gieck and the staff intend to surpass the approxi- mately $3,000 raised overall in

2015.

Shelley Gieck (mid- dle) is organizing the 2nd annual Hair Massacure Bake Sale at Rona on Feb. 12. The event raised over $900 last year, and sup- port the month-long fundraising cam- paign, Hair Mas- sacure, which raises funds for the Ronald McDonald House and Make-a-Wish Foundation. Deb-

bie Lindsay (l) and Joanne Stevens (r) show off some of the items one sale to help raise money.

“I just thought how can we make some extra money above what we’ve been doing,” Gieck said. “Last year we probably made, I’m going to say $3,000 to $4,000. That’s kind of what our goal is again this year but with the economy the way it is, it’s a good start. If we make it that’s awesome, but every little bit helps. I don’t think there’s not one person that not affected.” The Hair Massacure event originated in Edmonton in 2003, when a young girl, Kali Mac- Donald, was cleared from can- cer and treatment after going into remission, a state in which she remains to this day. Kali was diagnosed with Acute Lym- phoblastic Leukemia at the age of 2, and endured three years of daily chemotherapy. While she involved in a trial where she was given adult doses, the treatment

proved to be successful, and Kali

went on to inspire the Hair Mas- sacure fundraising event that to this day distributed over $10 million to northern Alberta char- ity organization. Although Gieck crossed off an item on her buck- et list last year, when she dyed her hair and shaved her locks for the cause, members of the com- munity can become involved by pinking their hair – having it bleached and dyed pink – at Mount Royal University, shaving their hair, donating their hair to various wig programs, or more commonly by purchasing Kali Bears and other items at Save- On-Foods or Rona. The Rona 2nd annual Hair Massacure Bake Sale will take place on Feb. 12 from 8 a.m. un- til 9 p.m. Prices range from $2 to $6 and items can be purchased using cash or cards. The Hair Massacure campaign will con- tinue to accept donations and sell items until Feb. 28.

Power of Play available in Strathmore

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

The Chevrolet Power of Play Hockey program in partnership with Hockey Canada was intro- duced in December to inspire young Canadians to be better people through positive values in the game of hockey. The program is working with seven ambassa- dors who are former Team Canada players. Each of those ambassadors provides a word that’s re- ally important to them in hockey and in life, said officials. “For example Ryan Smyth is one of the ambas- sadors,” said Dana Gladstone, Hockey Canada’s vice president of business development and part- nerships. “Ryan’s word is heart and he talks about heart and what it means. This program conveys those words in a number of ways to the peewee play- ers. They’re really at an age where they can un-

derstand abstract ideas. It’s the right age to rein- force these messages to them.” Gladstone said they have seen tremendous re- sponse to the program and have hit their targets in the program so they can share it with coaches right across the country. She added The program gives the coaches the opportunity to recognize their players with

a commemorative puck for doing something in-

spiring on and off the ice. “It’s the coach’s opportunity to not just say ‘you know what, great you scored the winning goal or that’s a great pass you made,’” said Gladstone.

“It could be you know what ‘you made a de- cision to the benefit of a teammate, you really did something that was inspirational.’ It’s really all about inspiration. It could be somebody at the end of the game because it was an important game and it ended up they shortened the bench a little bit and somebody who didn’t get to play at the end certainly could be recognized because they really cared about their team.” She added that players can be awarded for their off-ice efforts; for example, where some- one organized a particular event and a player got involved, or a player helped a teammate with homework. Strathmore Motor Products Marketing Director Patrice Fernandez thinks there are some perks to look forward to for local peewee coaches in this program. “It will benefit Strathmore because if you are a peewee coach and you’ve signed up your team, you’ll be receiving a kit completely free,” said Fernandez. “Each item has been created using words of inspiration from Team Canada Gold Medal win- ners. Now they’ve passed them on to the next generation to do the same. The involvement is to thank and assist our loyal and future customers by supporting a sport that most love and find new talents for Team Canada 2023.” Strathmore peewee coaches are qualified if they are registered with Hockey Canada and are validated for the coaching kit. Coaches can sign up and find more informa- tion at www.gm.ca.

Royalty review was much ado about nothing

DEREK FILDEBRANDT MLA Strathmore-Brooks

The good news: The NDP’s eight-month long royalty review changed pretty much nothing. The bad news: The NDP put Alberta’s oil and gas industry through a eight-month royalty review that created massive uncertainty for investors, and likely cost jobs. For the last two decades, the NDP have matter- of-factly declared that oil and gas companies were robbing Albertans blind by not paying their fair share of royalties. Royalties being a complicated series of regulations, it was easy for the NDP to promise that if they only raised royalty rates, Al- berta could spend until the cows came home. That was a nice sound bite in an election plat- form; that is, until the NDP got elected. The NDP launched their royalty review panel in June, con- tinuing to declare that it would net them even more revenue, despite our energy sector facing one of its biggest declines in decades. NDP rhetoric made clear that in their world view, the energy sector was a bottomless money pit of money that govern- ment need only dip its net into a little deeper. Ed Stelmach tried that in 2007 and triggered a massive capital flight to other jurisdictions, but that lesson of history didn’t matter to some. To allay the fears of investors, the NDP smartly included on their review panel several respected industry experts like Dave Mowat and Peter Tertz- akian. The inclusion of these experts went some way to calm the investment community, but it also made it less likely that a hard-core ideological roy- alty regime would be imposed. Investors have nonetheless moved investment away from Alberta. While low oil prices have had a depressing effect on oil well drilling globally, the royalty review – coupled with a massive new

carbon tax – have driven already limited capital investment to other, more stable and competitive jurisdictions like Saskatchewan. The announcement of the royalty review’s con- clusions on Jan. 29 came as a huge relief to indus- try. The government would make a few tinkering changes, but overall, the status quo would prevail. For investors, oilfield workers, ancillary indus- tries and every Albertan who lives a better life with a strong energy industry, this came as good news. The royalty review was akin to a mechanic pop- ping the hood of the car and spending a few hours talking about the need for a new engine, only to fill the washer fluid and say ‘your’re good to go’. In this case, the car inspection cost Alberta tax- payers $3 million and months of economic uncer- tainty. The NDP had however been relying on billions of dollars in new revenues to flow from higher royalties, with Finance Minister Joe Ceci promising increases as recently as his October 2015 budget speech. The NDP’s budget predicts a 16 per cent in- crease in revenues to balance the budget in 2019, but in the last three years of that budget, provides zero details on how it will achieve that. It’s fair to assume that the NDP had been bank- ing on its royalty review to bail them out. Without the revenue bonanza that they believed was com- ing, how will they now close that budget hole? In October, the projected consolidated deficit stood at $9.1 billion, using oil price assumptions that were far too optimistic, even then. Since Oc- tober oil prices have continued to decline, com- pounding the problem. The NDP inherited a $6.1 billion deficit from the former government and no one blames them for the price of oil, but their plans to continue increas- ing spending without any realistic source of rev-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Preserving Strathmore’s historic buildings

To the Editor Readers of the Times may be getting tired of hear- ing about council taking action regarding preserving the building that the Anglican Congregation met in for over 100 years, hereafter called “the building.” When I first heard about the Western District His- toric Society (WDHS) preserving the building, WDHS was going to move “the building” down near McDon-

alds close to the barn that has been restored. I could picture a nice little miniature village to visit and see “the building.” And, I assumed that WDHS had money to pay for having a miniature village other than pay- ing from my Strathmore taxes and Alberta tax dollars. Now, I must admit I may have missed something in presentations to Council by WDHS. I’ve met with Bruce Klaiber who has made WDHS presentations to council. Bruce informed me that WDHS examined the options such as moving “the building” or restoring

should be a “business plan” relating to preserving “the building.” A business plan, for example for in situ preservation, should let Strathmore residents know what expenses are expected now and in the future and “who” will pay now and in the future. In other words, a credible business plan is needed for making a rational decision on the acceptability of proposed development. My understanding is that council does not have any meaningful business plan document from WDHS. Therefore, council needs to do the following by coun- cil resolution:

(1) Require WDHS by Feb. 28, 2016 to provide a business plan for in situ restoration of “the building” that covers land use, moneys required now and in the future and details on who will pay. (2) Commit council to providing WDHS business plans documents to the public on Strathmore’s web-

Jay Beaman,

it

in situ. He even told me that there may even be

site as soon as the town officially receives them from

somebody with family links to the “the building” who will move it out of town rather than see “the building” demolished. Now, as I’ve not seen WDHS documents on options,

WDHS. (3) Hold public hearings at least 15 days after re- ceiving WDHS business plan documents but not later than Mar. 15, 2016.

I

cannot say what WDHS considered. Regardless, I

(4) If WDHS does not provide a business plan docu-

believe there is information that should be on the ta- ble before decisions and public hearings. Council has made it clear “Public Hearings” on the “fate” of “the building” will be held. Will hearings be held without the public being given any advanced information on WDHS or Strathmore paying for “the building’s” prop- erty? Who will pay for renovation? What will be done with/in the renovated building? If the building is pre- served, there will be month to month bills and capital maintenance in perpetuity. Who will pay?

ment as per (1) above, council commits to rescinding the 120 day moratorium relating to completion of sale of the property “the building” within two weeks (i.e., by March 15, 2016). Given the Mayor and Councillors Peterson and Walls are founding directors of the WDHS, good faith and transparency would be shown if one or more of these persons introduced motions as suggested above and did this soon.

In my earlier article in the Times, I implied there

enue to pay for it is their responsibility. Alberta’s largest job creator has been subjected to an eight- month royalty review that in the end found that they were in fact paying their fair share after being demonized. The review only caused huge investor uncertainty for eight months, cost good paying jobs, and poked another massive, multi-billion dollar hole in the NDP’s budget plans. Still, Albertans should be grateful that smart individuals on the royalty review panel stood their ground and ensured that the final report was based on evidence, and not ideology. It could have been worse. (Derek Fildebrandt is MLA for Strathmore-Brooks, the Wil- drose Shadow Minister of Finance and Chairman of the Pub- lic Accounts Committee.

Library handing out blind dates

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

While Christmas is over, the Strathmore Municipal Library isn’t finished wrap- ping presents quite yet. With their annual month- long program, Blind Date with a Book, underway, the staff rolled out the decora- tive wrapping paper and tape for a third year. Having built up some followers and positive feedback, the mys- tery books are back on the

library shelves waiting to be signed out and read. “Blind date with a book

is such a fun program,” said

Carmen Erison, assistant di- rector of library services. “This allows people to step out of their comfort zones. It’s a great chance to spice up your reading life. You never know, maybe you’ve been reading romances all this time and maybe you’ll

bring a mystery home and get hooked. Or maybe you’ll find a new author that you love.” The premise consists of wrapped books containing

a tag with a clue or teaser

hinting of the stories inside. But the program is not only

a creative way to expose

patrons to new genres, it also provides a platform for books lacking circulation to gain awareness. “We tend to have a lot of good books where maybe they don’t generate the same buzz as others do, and they just kind of sit on the shelf and if people read them they love them,” said

Rachel Dick Hughes, direc- tor of library services. “It’s just a matter of getting the attention on them.” Although the program had

a bumpy start in the begin- ning, Strathmore residents quickly warmed to the idea and books began flying off the shelves. Blind Date with

a Book will be available

throughout all of February

and caters to all ages. Unlike

a real blind date, however,

Erison offered a solution if stuck with a non-compati- ble item, stating: ”The great thing about it, if you don’t like your blind date, you can bring it back to the library and there’ll be no hurt feel-

ings.”

Library offers magical moments in February

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

To atone for programming visibly absent last February, the Strathmore Municipal Library is pulling out all the stops and upping the ante with new initiatives and additional fun for when the younger generation receive a break from school. Entrenching their unofficial mandate of providing programming for chil- dren when out of school, the library is launching new programming from Feb. 16 – 20 during teacher’s convention week and February long weekend. The programs include a magic show, building a monumental igloo from milk jugs, animal-themed crafts and games, and finishing with a Friday fun film. “When it comes to our programs, we’re always trying to be inventive and creative and come up with differ- ent things that kids can do,” said Car- men Erison, assistant director to library services at the Strathmore Municipal Library. “We’ve done ‘Get Your Game on’ many times where we opened up the room with board games. But it’s always the same thing. We didn’t do anything last year, and we want to keep raising the bar and making our programs and the library more fun for the commu- nity.” By forging ahead with their proposed plans, the library is welcoming, for the first time, magician Christopher Cool, known for his jokes and kid-friendly shows, on Feb. 16. As it’s expected to be a popular event, community members are urged to attend the free 45-minute show as early as possible, around 1:30, to secure a seat. “We’ve never done a magic show, at least in the five years that I’ve been here, and we wanted to do something unique,” Erison said. “It’s great because the town council has been so wonderful to us and in- creasing our funding, that we’ve been able to put a little additional money into our programming budget this year to be able to afford to hire performers like this. Kids love magicians, adults love magicians, you can’t go wrong with a magician.” The following day, the library em- barks upon creating a large igloo from 400 four-litre milk jugs. While the staff have accumulated 40 jugs so far, a bin at the library is available for the com- munity to donate more of the plastic items. Weather permitting, the igloo is expected to be constructed outside, but will be moved to the meeting room if

Assistant Director to Library Services Car- men Erison is excited for new programming being offered while children are out of school from Feb. 16 -20. The line-up in- cludes a magic show, building an igloo out of milk jugs, games and crafts, and a movie.

a cold front is expected. The project will later serve as a miniature fundraiser, when the jugs are being recycled, with funds being allocated to future programs. Then on Feb. 18, children have a chance to join the staff for a fun-filled after- noon animal party. The par- ticipants collect stamps after visiting a variety of animal- themed stations, where they will engage in crafts and games, and use their stamps to enter for a chance to win a $30 gift card of their choice. To finish off the week, the library is hosting the Friday Fun Film, featuring a PG

movie. The community is remind- ed that children under eight years of age need to be ac- companied by an adult. All programs are free to attend. The Magic Show with Christopher Cool begins at 2 p.m. on Feb. 16. Just Build It: Igloo Edition takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 17. The following day, on Feb. 18, the library will fea- ture Go Wild at the Library from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and showcase their Friday Fun Film event from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 19.

Pass the Salt
LEARNING THE VALUE
As a teenager, I learned some im-
portant lessons about value. Through
cutting neighbour’s lawns and
negotiating a fair price for the work,
I learned lessons about “market
value.”
My difficult decision to part with
my boyhood baseball collection for
$1,500 to help fund a high school
band trip to Europe was initiation into
the reality that “something is only
worth what someone else will pay
you for it.”
These early lessons, along with
others, were valuable in and of them-
selves, but they also reinforced an
economic worldview that can have
some unintended consequence.
As we live through a season in our
community where the implication
of national and global “value” con-
versations are impacting our lives in
significant ways, have we allowed
the reality of “economic lenses” to
become the dominant story of our
lives? In a season where the value
of a barrel of oil, the loonie, the cost
of a home (or rent), or a provincial
budget shapes many of our lives,
how are these realities shaping the
way we interact with others?
Is it possible that the dominance of
economic realities are keeping us
from seeing true value in people,
opportunities, and organizations
that sometimes do not balance in an
expressions of kindness, concern
and care, and humanity to a balance
sheet? Are we able to see our neigh-
bours as more than the possibility of
“profit or loss?”
Are we aware of the force of eco-
nomics on our day to day interac-
tions with others, decisions that are
made in our community, and even the
way we see ourselves?
You may be wondering about the
“saltiness” of these questions. “This
doesn’t seem very spiritual.”
Yet, I wonder in this season of
economic challenge for many, if one
of the most spiritual things we can
do is to be aware of the force of the
dollar on our lives and our identity as
individuals and as a broader commu-
nity … to wonder if there isn’t more
to the value of a neighbour, friend,
family member, property, church, or-
ganization than its economic impact.
For some, this will mean a renewed
acceptance of self value, worth and
belonging on the basis of simply
being a human being- not a human
doing or economic being.
Jesus, quoting the Old Testament
challenged, “love God with all your
heart, soul, mind and strength… and
love your neighbour as yourself.”
What’s the effect of economic reality
on your ability to love neighbour and
love yourself?
economic sense. Have we reduced

Rosebud for Syria puts love into action on Valentine’s Day

LAUREEN F. GUENTHER Times Contributor

Refuge, a performance fundraiser or- ganized by Rosebud for Syria, will be held in Rosebud Church on the after- noon of Feb. 14. Funds raised will support Syrian ref- ugees, here in Alberta and overseas. “Refuge is an open-hearted render- ing of true stories and original mate- rial from artists identifying with the need for refuge within all of us,” said Jeany Snider, a Rosebud for Syria group member, in an e-mail. “It is one way that we can act upon our desire to love our neighbor,” she wrote. “We decided to go about it this way, hosting an offering of music and story, because that is one of the primary re- sources we have to give in Rosebud.” Scheduling the event on Valentine’s Day was mostly practical at first, since it was an available date on the calendar. “But the connection quickly provided an opportunity to genuinely express love,” Snider said. “Jesus says if we only love those who love us, what reward is there in that? Identifying with the thousands of refugees in the world, and attempting to love them, becomes a much more meaningful Valentine than

it’s

the way we traditionally celebrate

love in action.” Singer-songwriters Natalie Inga Gauthier and Cassia Schramm, both graduates of Rosebud School of the Arts (RSA), will perform music, as will Bill and Renita Hamm and the RSA women’s choir, Rosa Cantorum. The Dearhearts, the Rosebud-based trio who won the Regional Championship of CBC’s 2015 Searchlight Competition, will also perform.

Renita Hamm, Morris Ertman and Maki Van Dyke will share stories, and audience members may have opportu- nity to share their own. The RSA drama ministry team will give a presentation of Psalm 32 and a short play called “The Provision of Ishmael.” Rosebud for Syria will accept a free- will offering, with all donations tax-re- ceipted by Rosebud Church. “After the performance, folks are en- couraged to stay and have conversation in the fellow- ship hall with snacks pro- vided by RSA,” said Snider. “This is a wonderful op- portunity to engage with (other people about) what is happening in the world, to listen to one another’s concerns and share ideas for how to love our neigh- bor. “(The Refuge event) allows us to grapple with what is going on in our world and find ways to respond to the cries of our conscience. It allows us to focus our energy toward a project de- signed to care for the needs of others.” Funds raised at Refuge will assist the two Syrian refugee families sponsored by the Strathmore group Hope for Syr- ia. Some funds may also be designated to Med Air, an agency that provides re- lief to people in locations unreached by other organizations. People who want to donate to Ref- uge but are unable to attend on Feb. 14 may contact Rosebud Church directly, specifying their donation is for Syrian relief. Other fundraising events are also planned, including a Rosa Cantorum concert in the Rockyford parish, April

24.

Refuge will be held at 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 14, at Rosebud Church. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

Brentwood students take part in exciting opportunity

MIRIAM OSTERMANN Times Associate Editor

For more than 20 years, Brentwood Elementary School’s choir students have participated in the Alberta Chil- dren’s Choir South (ACC), forging the way for eight current ardent and talent- ed individuals who will be participat- ing in the opportunity once again this year – a circumstance not without its challenges. Brentwood’s senior choir Grade 5 students Emma Moore and Tegan De- loli, as well as Grade 6 students Alyssa Poole, Ruth Dinunzio, Madeline Hv- ingklby, Zhara Harney, Keuna Drydale, and Jaden Frizzell, will not only be sur- rounded by nearly 100 students from across southern Alberta and receive instruction from world-renowned con- ductors Zimfira Poloz and Faye Klassen, but engage in music involving Norwe- gian, Spanish, and Hebrew languages. “It’s kids who want to participate, who want to have that experience, who want to grow even farther and sing repertoire that’s more demanding and more challenging,” said Carolyn Steeves, music teacher at Brentwood El- ementary School. “This year, in Norwe- gian, that’s very challenging and these kids that want to put that extra effort in so I see that kind of student com- ing forward each year. They’ve seen the children who’ve gone in the past, and they look up to them. I think they know it’s a big deal and they want to rise to the occasion.” Steeves added that the local choris- ters generally return to the school with greater confidence and heightened leadership skills. She has noticed some students take on an active role in help- ing other students and step up to tackle

solos. Hvingklby, Harney, and Drydale all took part in the event last year, and are eager to participate again. “All the students here really like to sing and participate in all the things we like to do in our school, but it gives those kids who really do go above and beyond a chance to do something ex- tra,” said Steeves. “Not only does it give them the opportunity to do that, but it also gives them the opportunity to meet kids from other choirs across southern Alberta and work with world-class con- ductors. It’s really a wonderful opportu- nity for these children.” The Alberta Children Choir’s is ex- posing the children to award-winning conductor, educator and adjudicator Zimfira Poloz, who has been teaching around the world. While the experi- ence will required extensive practices, intense hours and discipline of the 11- to-15 year-olds, those who participated last year are looking forward to making new friends, learning different types of music, and getting to sing. “I like to sing because I get to express myself and it sounds nice,” said Hving- klby. “I grew up with music because I play piano and my mom and sister play piano and we all sing our songs. Ever since Kindergarten, I always sang Twin- kle Twinkle or something like that.” Tegan Deloli, who said he was sur- rounded by music all his life, learned to play piano by ear and loves choral mu- sic. Participating in the ACC for the first time is an exciting event for the young- ster who’s already passionate about Verdi, Puccini and Beethoven. The Alberta Children’s Choir South concert will take place on Feb. 6 at the Knox United Church in Calgary at 7 p.m.

Me and the Mrs. to perform on Valentine’s Day

LAUREEN F. GUENTHER Times Contributor

Paul Zacharias and his wife Heather Pattengale Zacharias of Rosebud, who compose and perform as the musical duo Me and the Mrs., are planning “Me

and the Mrs. and St. Valentine,” a Valen- tine’s Day concert for everyone – both couples and singles. “The human race is one big family re- ally: married (and) single,” Paul Zacha- rias said in an e-mail. “I think the same things make us all tick. We all have our own struggles and joys and it’s just good to be in each other’s company.” This concert will give people a chance

to do that, he said. “We’ll be playing a nice mix of mate-

rial covering a range of subject matter,”

he

wrote. “So even if you’re not current-

ly

‘attached,’ it’s safe to say you’ll have

a

good evening filled with laughter,

songs, stories and maybe the odd tear.” It’s appropriate that he and Heather give a Valentine’s Day concert, Zacha- rias said, because they’re “beekeeping, traveling musicians who are in love,” and St. Valentine, known for watch- ing over lovers and couples, is also the patron saint of bee- keepers and travel- ers. Concert guests will be served a glass of wine, and will receive a floral arrangement created by hostess Alysa van Haastert, whom Zacharias de- scribed as “an artist with flowers.” “Good news for someone coming with a date, who might also be a little forgetful,” he said, “we’ve got the flowers covered for you!”

The rest of this winter and spring, Me and the Mrs. is “mostly focusing on writ- ing and arranging new songs and some of the business aspects of the working musician that easily get left behind in the business of playing lots last year.” They’ll also soon begin work on Rosebud Theatre productions: Heath- er in Outside Mullin- gar and Paul on The Sunset Ltd. “Me and the Mrs. and St. Valentine” takes place Sun- day, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m., in southwest Calgary. Tickets are $70 per couple and $50 for a single. For tickets, directions and further informa- tion, contact Alysa at alysavanhaastert@ gmail.com.

Forty teams provided an exciting atmo- sphere on the ice and for the fans in a 70 game schedule at the seventh annual Laurie Morton Ruppe Memorial tourna- ment at the Strathmore Family Centre last weekend. There were 10 Strathmore teams that participated in the event as hosts and two of them came home with medals. The

U19B team took home gold while the U16B team won silver. Tournament director Pam Betke said this is something they strive for every year is for the local teams to do well and win medals. “We’re always hoping that our teams will be able to perform well at the tour- nament,” said Betke. “It’s always nice to win medals at a tournament. I think for our girls it’s even better when it happens on your home ice.”

This was the Strathmore Ice U19B’s third straight gold medal, having won tournaments previously in Lethbridge and Rockyford and assistant coach Jan Wathen was thrilled with how the girls were able to work as a team en route to going undefeated in the tournament. “They’re a special group,” said Wathen. “The girls played well. There’s just a lot of good athletes on the team that have played a lot of years of ringette and they work well together.”

a good reputation and it was important to the committee for the teams to enjoy the experience of the weekend so that teams will want to come back year after year. “It’s just another way to market the sport,” said Betke. “Our girls love going to tournaments. When you have teams coming in from far away, it’s also an op- portunity for those teams to bond with each other because they get to spend a lot more time together as a team.”

Cross country skiing trekking into Strathmore

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

For the last couple of weeks, the Strathmore Golf Club has been trans- formed into a cross-country ski track that will be open for use for the rest of winter. The idea originated among club mem- bers who wanted to find ways to use the facilities all year round. They decided on 8.7 km of trails over the lake and Golf Course track. “There’s a little bit of everything,” said Josh Witty, Strathmore Golf Club’s assis- tant pro. “They’re fairly good trails and we just, more or less, want to get people

out and actually using it. Nowhere else in town or around has cross-country

skiing. It’s a good thing a lot of people like being able to get out and do some- thing else in the winter rather than just be inside all the time; just something different that we can provide to the community.” He added that the trails offer a variety of terrains, with the driving range section being a straight track and some curvy parts, while there are some mounds that begin along the second fairway where the waste bunkers would normally be. The fee to participate is $5 per ski- er or $10 a family. However, golf club members are able to access the course for free. Skiers must provide their own equip- ment, and the trails will be open seven days a week.

Chiefs picking up points; Braves continue streak

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

The Wheatland Chiefs picked up three of a possible four points on the road last weekend, and stay a mere two points ahead of the Okotoks Oilers for the South Division lead after a 1-1 tie with Medicine Hat on Jan. 29, and a 7-1 win in High River against the Foothills Bisons on Jan. 31. Head coach Shadoe Stoodley said

that if it weren’t for goaltender Nelson Schiller’s 31-save performance against Medicine Hat, the score could’ve been

a lot worse than a tie.

“I wasn’t impressed,” said Stoodley. “Our goalie, Schiller, played really well. But we couldn’t create any offense and just pucks bouncing off our sticks too easy and losing too many battles. It wasn’t our best game.” He added the boys needed to work on getting the puck out of their zone

a lot cleaner than they have been and

getting the puck deep while working on the cycle. Zach Suntjens scored in the tie for the Chiefs.

Stoodley said the team played much better against Foothills because the team was able to find their offensive touch. “Their goaltender wasn’t too strong,” said Stoodley. “(We got) a couple of powerplay goals which was good, some- thing we always work on. I thought

Kings drop road games

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

Caleb Gordon, a Rosebud School ofThe Wheatland Kings scored the first goal in both road games but unfortu- nately could not build on those leads, losing 6-5 in Cochrane on Jan. 29 and

5-4 in a shootout to Ponoka on Jan. 30. Veteran defenseman Blake Bishop said the boys just didn’t have the suc- cess they were looking for. “In Cochrane we knew we had a hard challenge and it was good to get that first goal lead,” said Bishop. “But we didn’t get the puck luck and from there

it was tough to battle back.

“In Ponoka, we played hard until the third period and just let off at the end and paid the consequences. We shot the puck lots, worked hard for 50 minutes, but you give up that 10 minutes and that’s where it goes down hill.” He added that the team felt confident in going to the shootout against Pono- ka, having worked on shootouts dur- ing practice. However, they were well aware the experience would be differ- ent once they were in a game situation. “It’s too bad,” said Bishop. “We’re lucky to come out with one point and clinch fourth place in our division. That’s all we’re focused on right now is playoffs.” Bishop cautioned that the team can’t afford to let the foot off the pedal, and to keep meshing as a group. Hayden Vanderploeg, Brennan Fuo- co, Jacen Bracko, Chris Williams and Brendan Moore scored in the loss to Cochrane. Williams, Kyle Dunville, Cole Busslinger and Zach Meadows scored in the shootout loss to Ponoka. The Kings played their last regular season home game versus Banff on Feb. 2 (results were unavailable as of press time) and will end the season in

Cochrane on Feb. 6 (7:30 p.m.) and in Okotoks on Feb. 7 (1:15 p.m.).

they had a much stronger game everywhere tonight.” Riley Romashenko led the offense with two goals, while Lucas Muenchrath, Christopher Rebeyka, Ryan Bell, Jason Hobson and Alec Biletsky supplied one goal each in the win. The local double-A midget team will get a rematch with Medicine Hat when they host them in Hussar at 5 p.m. on Feb. 6. Meanwhile, the Wheat-

land Braves continue to find ways to win, as they were able to come from behind to beat Okotoks 6-4 on Jan. 30, and doubled up on Red Deer 10-5 in Hussar on Jan.

31.

Head Coach Carl Knud- sen said the boys were able to overcome some adversity after Okotoks was able to score two quick goals early in third to tie the game. “We had a few powerplays there in the third period that we were good on,” said Knudsen. “We just got some timely goals in third period. It was good to see. We can’t take a night off now. It’s just all building towards the final tournament.”

Knudsen said the team put in a similar effort against Red Deer, and he was pleased to see the offense get going. “We played confident with the puck getting that cycle work going,” said Knudsen. “Then causing turnovers on the fore-check and taking that puck to the net and go- ing hard.” Tristan Zandee scored five goals to lead the charge, while Trey Gillis, Adam Kirk- patrick, Kobe Gosling, Mat- thew Quebec and Ray War- rack contributed one goal each in the win. The local double-A pee- wee team will have a home- and-home with the Taber Golden Suns this weekend, starting at the Strathmore Family Centre at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 5, before heading to Taber the following day. Meanwhile, the Wheatland Warriors tied Cranbrook 2-2 out in Hussar on Jan. 29. Brandon Kasdorf and Cole Berg scored the Warriors goals. The local double-A ban- tam team will host the Foot- hills Bisons at the Strath- more Family Centre at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 7.

I started training at Anytime Fitness

Strathmore about a year ago, and it has been a great year of training and competing for me. The welcoming atmosphere, staff and members has been great, and the flexibility to go whenever I want is great for my shift work schedule. I began seriously training for strength sports about five years ago, and I am now focusing on strongman contests. Last year was my first year competing in strongman, and Anytime Strathmore was my

primary gym that I used for my training.

I competed in Cranbrooks Strongest

Man, and placed fourth, and I also competed in Spruce Groves Strongest Man, and placed fifth overall. I plan on doing both again this year, as well as a few Calgary-area strongman contests.

Disc golf league starting in Strathmore

DEVINN DOERING SAY Times Contributor

The Strathmore Assembly of Youth (SAY) built the Strathmore Disc Golf Course in 2015. The course has had much use since its grand opening, with people from age three to 83 trying out the fun sport of disc golf. It is great to see the citizens of Strathmore spending time outdoors and being active. SAY is excited to announce that they will now be hosting a monthly drop-in disc golf league. The league is open to players of all ages and skill levels and is free to join. SAY hopes to introduce

new players to the sport as well as see the skills many players have built up since the construction of the course. Come to play disc golf at 5:30 p.m. at Brentwood School on the first Thurs- day of every month starting March 3. No sign-up or pre-registration is re- quired. Play will be in a fun, random team format with lots of prizes. If you have discs, please bring them. Extra discs will be available to borrow if you are new to the sport. For more information, please visit www.strathmorediscgolf.com. Hope to see you on the course on March 3!

Bisons tie Hurricanes

JUSTIN SEWARD Times Reporter

Despite a slow start on the road against Lethbridge, the CFR Bisons sal- vaged a much need point in a 2-2 tie on Jan. 30. In their first of five road games to close out the regular season, the Bisons found themselves trailing 2-1 before ty- ing the game in the third period. Head coach Sandy Henry thought the boys were sluggish in the beginning and didn’t respond well to the Hurri- canes pressure early on. “They came hard and we were under a lot of pressure and it took us awhile to get our feet going,” said Henry “I think we intended to dump a lot of pucks in and we talked about it between periods. That’s not really our identity. We want to attack them with the puck with speed at their blue line. Once we got in after the first and got a chance to talk to them and regroup, we were much better in the second and dominant in the third.”

He added that once the boys started to skate, they were able to weather the Hurricanes attack. Brett Trentham and Cole Clayton scored for the Bisons. “I thought we did a good job pene- trating them after the first period,” said Henry. “Yet if we got the puck moving and our feet moving then they kind of go away after that. I thought for 40 minutes we were the better team and we played 20 (minutes) where they were the better team. I thought after the first period we really limited what they had for oppor- tunities and at the same time increased our level of opportunity.” Now heading up north for four games over the next two weekends, Henry ex- pects the team to go in and play hard, and that will be a good way to get more team bonding in before playoffs start. The road trip continues in Grande Prairie on Feb. 6 (2 p.m.) when they take on the the Storm, before facing the St. Albert Raiders at 2:30 p.m. the fol- lowing day.

WARRACK,

David Bruce

It is with heavy hearts that we an- nounce the passing of David Bruce Warrack at the age of 71 years. Bruce passed away peacefully in his home on January 27, 2016 with Gwen, his beloved wife of 52 years by his side, after a brief battle with cancer. He was a loving father of three sons Jeff (Christine), Ron (Kelly) and Sonny (Michelle) of Cheadle and his daughter Jo-Anne Barrett (Mike) of Calgary. He was grandfather to 16 grand- children, Russel, Rachel, Erin and Jack Warrack, Danny (Vanessa) Warrack, Katelyn Haffner (Mike) and Derek and Jill Warrack, Jake, Meg, Jemma, and Ray Warrack and Ashley, Amy, Ben and Brooke Barrett, and a great-grandfather of four, Cash Col- poys, Ella Haffner, and Peyton and Maci Warrack. They affectionately called him “Bobba”, “Bob”, Papa, or “B Dub”and he cared deeply about each and every one of them. He took extreme pride in how he could rattle off everyone’s birthdays and he would eagerly engage them in meaningful conversations at every opportunity. Bruce is also survived by his sister Linda Farris of Vancouver and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Jack and Edna War- rack and two brothers Robert and Melvin Warrack.

Bruce was born on August 20, 1944 and raised on his parents’ farm east of Cheadle, Alberta. He attended school in Strathmore and at Mount Royal College in Calgary. In 1963, he married a “gal a few hundred fence posts down the road”, Gwen Jones. Bruce and Gwen were the grandchildren of pioneers, who all settled their farms in the early 1900’s in the Cheadle and Langdon districts and they were proud to carry on that legacy. In 1966, Bruce and Gwen started “Bruce Farms Ltd” which became their life’s passion and had the privilege of watching it grow into the strong multi-generation- al family business it is today.

Bruce was dedicated to his family, and passion- ate about the land, cattle and things that endure. He was a great observer of life and people and he understood many things about nature, and hu- man nature that few learn from books. A respected businessman and farmer in the community, he im- pacted everyone he met and inspired people with his strong character, honesty, wit and wisdom.

He was a quietly generous man, helping many friends and neighbors, even in the middle of the night, knowing they could always call on him for help. He was always willing to listen, offering his advice and words of encouragement to mo- tivate people to go that extra mile in all things, which was certainly a value he practiced himself throughout life.

It is fitting that one of Bruce’s last wishes was to be privately cremated with his ashes to be scat- tered out on the farm that he loved, after the crop is sown this spring and the land is greening.

At Bruce’s request, a “Just passing through” cel- ebration will be held at the Cheadle Hall on Friday June 10th, 2016 at 4:30pm.
