Two large dogs that got loose the morning of July 6 wreaked havoc at the Ag. Society grounds. The dogs attacked a herd of sheep that were brought in by the Sunshine Hutterite Colony as part of a grazing lease. “We do the sheep because it’s good for the environment, it saves us from running the machines to cut the grass,” said Jim Cammaert, chief executive officer for the Strathmore and District Ag. Society. “It’s always a tragedy when animals get hurt.” It appears the two dogs managed to escape from home at approximately 5 a.m., and it is possible they had about four hours with the sheep before anyone took notice. “When we showed up we could only locate one dog as the other one had already returned home. We were able to corner the other dog in the football field and we kind of contained it until the owner showed up to get it under control,” said Cnst. Andrew Lindsay with the Strathmore RCMP. “We went back into the Ag grounds to assess the damage, we discovered three dead sheep and four seriously injured ones that had to be put down after consultation with the vet, which brought the total to seven that were killed.” In addition to the animals killed, there were another 16 that were injured. There was also a goat that was seriously injured, though an assessment is still being completed as of press time to see if the goat will be euthanized as well. Lindsay stated that once employees were aware of the situation they did chase the dogs off of the property a couple of times. “I think they were doing everything they could do. We’re still not sure how the dogs got in, so they’re actually in the process of just going through the fence to make sure there are no holes. They could have slipped underneath in some spots if there’s a difference in grade on the ground,” said Lindsay. Through consultation with the SPCA it was determined that the dogs could return to their owner. Lindsay said if they had attacked a person then the dogs could have been seized and quarantined for up to 10 days. Continued on Page 2

In the afternoon of July 8, an Old Dutch chip truck came barreling through Jeanine Jamieson’s yard before crashing into her trees.

Chip truck stolen, thief apprehended
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter On July 8, like a scene out of a cheesy movie, an Old Dutch Chip truck was stolen and used in a high-speed chase that ended in one Wheatland County resident’s yard. “I was on Facebook posting an update about the volunteering I had been doing at the Sportsplex in Siksika,” said Jeanine Jamieson, who lives 10 minutes west of Strathmore. “I had just finished writing something and then I heard squealing tires coming down my driveway and stood up, and then heard this really hard bang outside. I just immediately knew that that wasn’t right and called the police.” After she called the police, she poked her head outside and saw an Old Dutch chip truck up against a tree in her yard, and then a white Old Dutch van that she said had appeared to be chasing the truck was in the yard as well. “Then a police car came and then more police came, and then they were out with their guns drawn. The guy ran off, even with how quickly the police came he managed to escape,” said Jamieson. “Most of the police left the yard right away and started combing the roads around here. It didn’t sound like they were having much luck finding him so they brought out the canine unit and I don’t know if it was for sure the dog that actually ended up finding him two miles away near Prescott Feedlots.” Charges have been laid against a 36-year-old male from the Chestermere area. Dax Seymour has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, driving while disqualified, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from a peace officer, obstruction of a peace officer, mischief under $5,000 and failing to obey a traffic control device. “It doesn’t surprise me that this was stolen … if it is available they will take it,” said Cpl. Chris Hrynyk with the Strathmore detachment. “Any type of vehicle will be stolen by somebody who is motivated to take it, no matter what it is. The best thing is to make sure you’re not leaving your vehicle running outside of somewhere and that it’s locked without leaving the keys.” The incident, which ended up being a humorous story, could have had a different outcome if Jamieson’s children had been home. “Normally I have a six-year-old and a two-year-old playing outside, but they were at their dad’s. My two-year-old and I, one of the things we do all the time right now is go up and down the driveway on bikes and if they were here it would have been extremely frightening, but because they weren’t and no one got hurt, it’s kind of funny,” said Jamieson. She said after the Old Dutch guys were told that the crime scene was clear they pulled their truck out of the trees, they gave her four big bags of chips which she then donated to Siksika flood victims the next day.

Attack at Ag grounds leaves 7 sheep dead, 16 injured
Continued from Page 1 Lindsay also stated that there has been a history of the dogs escaping from home before, but there have never been any injuries to humans or animals until the July 6 incident. “If they get back out we may have to consider seizing them, just because obviously something’s not being done other than not being properly held in their yard, or the owners not taking proper responsibility for them,” said Lindsay. “We haven’t laid any charges at this point, we’re still investigating and we’re actually consulting with crown council to determine what would be the most appropriate charge and whether we’re going to go under a provincial act or a municipal bylaw.” If the dogs do get out again, Lindsay said, the situation will be dealt with in a manner that depends on the circumstances.

At Kinsmen Park on July 13, roughly 800 guests looked through 125 vehicles for the 20th Show and Shine held by the Strathmore Fun Runners. Cars ranged from the 1920’s to this year’s models, with everything in between. Top: Derrick Andersen’s 1923 Model T. Right: Harry Schroeder’s 1947 New Yorker.

Lazy Summer Days

Show and Shine combines new and old with 125 displays
Aryssah Stankevitsch Times Reporter Roughly 800 guests and 125 vehicles drove into Kinsmen Park for the 20th anniversary of the Strathmore Fun Runners’ Show and Shine event on July 13. “I think it’s awesome,” said Derrick Andersen, who brought his 1923 Model T. “Hang out with some people of the same genre, get some ideas on what to do next.” There was a raffle for a BBQ that looked like an engine, lots of food, a live band, face painting and a jumpy house for the kids. Todd Blakney has been going to Show and Shines for 30 years – he still has his first car that he bought when he turned 16, and it’s only gotten faster and faster as he’s added additions over the years. “I’m a power nut guy,” he said. “It’s got to look good and go fast, and then you have my attention.” Blakney noted that there are lots of cool cars in town but you never get to see them all at once until an event like the Fun Runners’ Show and Shine displays them all. He brought his dad’s 1957 Pontiac. “The passion to see all this come together … new stuff comes out, and old stuff starts to fade away. And then this stuff gets pulled out and everybody that you look at, the old people go ‘I used to have that.’”

Volunteer Richard Kubin puts together the new slide as part of Westmount’s new playground. Roughly 20 people came to assist in the weekendlong project, including Associate Principal Dana Graff.

Westmount comes together for new playground
Aryssah Stankevitsch Times Reporter Associate Principal of Westmount Elementary Dana Graff, with the help of roughly 20 volunteers, installed a new playground system for the school on July 13-14. All equipment was cemented on the weekend, and will be graveled by the middle of the week. “It’s been really great,” said Graff. “Lots of parents here. We’ve even had a senior show up today to help.” Volunteers worked full days, of hours roughly 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and had lunch provided. Habitat Playground sent a few workers as well, while the Strathmore Lions offered a big tent space for shelter. Gray’s Limited prepared the area, and put in the footing for the towers. “They’re also – as a courtesy to us – they’re doing a revamp of the naturalization area,” Graff said. “They’re making a big berm, a big hill, and they’re going to put some new logs in there, new rocks, and some new wood chips and make it all look nice.” The previous wooden structure was removed for safety reasons, as it was not up to code. The new structure is a little smaller than planned, but lots of fun no less. “We kind of planned on about a $300,000 playground, and when it was all said and done we had $240,000,” said Graff. “So we downscaled a bit.” Volunteer Richard Kubin has a son attending Westmount, and a daughter who will be joining in a year’s time. He thought it would be nice to volunteer for them. “It’s going to be great, hopefully they have fun,” he said. “If it gets them out of my hair, I’m happy to do it!”

RECYCLE FACILITY UPDATE
As a result of the restructuring of the Recycle Facility, which was approved by Council in 2012, users will notice substantial changes and construction at the facility over the next couple of months. As part of this restructuring the new operator will be installing fences, relocating bins and recyclable containment units. Users of the facility are asked to consult with recycle assistants for appropriate placement of recycle materials and to minimize the duration of their use of the facility due to the restricted amount of space for parking. The structure of the Recycle Facility has also changed not only to accommodate the construction but to provide a safe and effective use of space for all users. Users are requested to take time to familiarize themselves with the new layout and location of bins in a safe manner. Operations of the new structure of the facility will be reviewed periodically to ensure operational effectiveness and safety for all users. The Town of Strathmore thanks all users for their patience during this construction

Capsule Comments
It’s usually women who worry that their biological clock is ticking when they desire to have a family. However, men should also be concerned about their own clock. The age of the new father can have an effect on the health of their children. It’s important that if you are a new father-to-be, you be fit physically and mentally to give your children the best chance of a healthy life. Genetics and cancer are closely linked. U.S. scientists have discovered mutations in several genes that might be involved with esophageal cancer. The hope is that this knowledge will help develop treatments to prevent the disease from occurring. The cure for cancer could lie in our genes. At this time of year, our heels often become quite rough from going barefoot so often. Foot files are available to smooth the skin but have to be used with care. Pumice stones are much safer to use. Diabetics should be particularly cautious and pay close attention to their foot care. If you are stung by a bee, the stinger may still be in the skin. Take a credit card or a needle (not tweezers!) and scrape the stinger carefully off the skin. Pulling it out with tweezers might release more venom causing more swelling and pain. Our pharmacy staff’s goal is to get to know you and fullfil your prescription needs in a fast, personal and caring manner. Give our brand of pharmacy a try!

Online auction exceeds expectations
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter Many people have spent the past few weeks volunteering their time to help those devastated by the floods. While those affected appreciate the support being given in the form of lending a helping hand, some volunteers have gone above and beyond the idea of picking up a shovel. For Bobby Jo Wiebe, the need to do more originated from seeing the devastation at the Parkside Store in Wyndham. “We were there volunteering at Parkside Store, which is owned by a family close to my heart. A store that we all grew up going to and have so many memories from camping at the Wyndham Provincial Park campground,” said Wiebe. “The destruction was everywhere and it was completely devastating. I don’t know of anyone who didn’t leave there feeling they just wanted to do all they could to help.” After seeing the popularity of her ‘ridiculously photogenic firefighter’ brother-in-law Shawn Wiebe, who had his smiling photo taken carrying an elderly woman out of flood water, Wiebe knew she had a way she could raise a little money for the WyndhamCarseland area; by auctioning off a signed copy of the now famous picture. Things just grew from there. Wiebe started her auction by selling the photo for $125, and said she was already grateful by that point. She set an initial goal of raising $300. In the end she was able to raise $5,550. “This is truly about those who supported the idea. I am blessed to be amongst the biggest hearts in the world. I don’t know one person who hasn’t volunteered, donated items or come up with an idea in raising money for flood victims in High River, Calgary, Siksika and Wyndham,” said Wiebe. This was the first time Wiebe had undertaken a project like this, but she said something tells her this will not be the last time. “We all had so much fun and like my friend Amanda said, ‘it’s one big rolling ball of love,’” said Wiebe. Each day there were a number of different items to bid on, with one day having upwards of six different things. Wiebe said she thinks once people started to see what was going on and knew they could trust in it, they became more involved. It was close for which item raised the most funds, but a donation by Suzanne Sorensen for $1,745 for a signed Bob Thompson, chairman and president of the Calgary Stampede board, ‘Hell or High Water’ T-Shirt helped bring the total up to the $5,000 mark. Next up for Wiebe is seeing if there are any companies who may be interested in matching the amount the online auction has raised. “So many companies have done so much already but if there is one still waiting for a chance to get involved we would love to join with you,” said Wiebe. Any business interested in matching the amount raised can contact BJ Wiebe at 403-616-5571.

Highway accident leaves one man seriously wounded
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter Close to 12 Midnight on Wednesday, July 10 Strathmore RCMP responded to a call of a vehicle travelling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Highway 1. “The information that we received was that there was a vehicle travelling the wrong way down the highway, and we responded. While we were responding we were advised that a collision had occurred,” said. Cpl. Chris Hrynyk. A Ford F-150 was allegedly travelling the wrong way down the highway when it is said the vehicle collided with a Dodge Caravan. The driver of the Caravan sustained serious, potentially life threatening injuries and had to be transferred to the hospital via STARS Air Ambulance. On July 12 the Strathmore RCMP charged 46-year-old Roger Rotariu from Strathmore with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, having a blood alcohol level over the legal limit causing bodily harm and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. The driver of the Caravan, A 36-yearold male whose name has not been released, has been stabilized in hospital. He has suffered serious injuries as a result of the collision and had to be extricated from the vehicle. Rotariu is set to appear in Strathmore provincial court on Aug. 20.

Letters to the editor

When is unique not unique anymore?
To the Editor It is unfortunate when members, councillors, trustees, or anyone holding a public position begin to feel that his/her involvement with an organization and especially with the government decides that he/ she has the power to take control. There is usually no malice or underhandedness, but the fact that they feel they can do anything on behalf of their council and then expect to be backed by their council is wrong and can lead to gross mismanagement. Checks are put in place to prevent this type of behaviour. The controversy over Mr. Best confronting Mr. Sobol for doing just this sort of thing is a perfect example. Mr. Sobol used his position to decide without due process to grant money. Mr. Best and I would think others on council were not privy to Mr. Sobol’s actions and felt pressured to vote yes to save face, appear nice, or be a good guy. If the item had been brought before a proper council meeting, councillors would give their opinions on the proposal and make informed decisions on how much involvement and money they felt comfortable with. People need to realize that the money they are overseeing is not theirs to pledge, it doesn’t matter the circumstances. If they feel the need is immediate, then pledge their own money. If they feel something is a great idea, then bring it to the council. Period. There is not an organization in the world that would not be thankful for a donation before, after or during their campaign. If a decision has to be imminent, then the answer is no. The issue is not what the money was spent for, the issue is the process; and when the process is continually compromised, bad things can happen. In one of the articles I was reading, Mr. Best had to defend himself for agreeing to the last indiscretion of a councillor; obviously one of the councillors had spent money without authority. So which case was the unique one? And how many more unique cases have there been? And when will this type of behaviour be viewed as the norm? We elect a group of people to look after the business of running any endeavour, the key word is group. Cheryl Marshman Rockyford, Alberta

Supporting those in need
To the Editor I would like to personally thank these Strathmore businesses that donated when I asked them to assist Siksika flood victims; Home Hardware, Canadian Tire, Co-op and Walmart. Also, to the businesses and individuals who have been collecting, sorting, storing, volunteering and transporting to flood victims everywhere. Have met so many big-hearted folks around here and online, as well as appreciative flood victims or have never had so many parking lot hugs. Georgina Evenson Strathmore

Pat Fule Fule for Thought His name was Allister Weatherhead Moore, and he hated his middle name! Actually, I can understand why Allister hated his middle name, it is a strange one. He was born in Cochrane in 1913, and I think one of the ways you got a middle name was from your mother’s maiden last name. Poor Allister, he really did not like being a “Weatherhead,” although he would allow his two initials to be used, and even before the fast food chain, he was “A & W” to his friends and family. He worked for Calgary Power many years ago, and was working when the Seebe Power plant came on line. He was lean, and he filled his days with all sorts of jobs to do, even into his 80s. He could do many things electrically, but sometimes his “repair” jobs were a little on the unusual side. In our first house he had done all his electrical checks and was determined to hang up a beautiful chime clock in the dining room. It seemed to be taking a lot longer than we thought it should and eventually, we checked on him, as he just finished the job. It was hung straight, but he had a little smile. Behind the clock were about 17 “test” holes where he had tried to find the stud in the wall! His only comment while smiling was, “how ‘bout that!” We all laughed, and I think he even blushed. In one of our houses, we only had room for a tiny vegetable garden, but there a 10 year old Brennen and his 85 year old grandpa planted theirs. He shared his love of gardening with Brennen, taught him to not plant until June 3, to thin the carrots, and plant the seed potatoes a certain way. It was quite a sight to see them in their “working clothes!” Years later, near Christmas time, we were visiting the grandparents at their 1908 Cochrane house. Allister was frustrated with a toilet on the second floor that was always slow when flushing. Now you know I have no “fix-it” bone in my body, so I just did what he told me. I went with him to his garage, but I was perplexed by him getting his leaf blower. Not only was it a leaf blower about to be used to jam into the toilet, it was an electric one! I was shocked (pun intended), and I pictured one or both of us “ridin’ the lightning” (Green Mile reference)! I wondered: hmmm, Allister’s worked with electricity for years, he must know what he’s doing! But then again, even with a PE degree, I knew: water + electricity = BAD! I stood back from “the splash zone” as he did jam the blower end in to the toilet! Then he said to me, “now Patrick (here it comes), YOU just plug the cord into the outlet.” Plug the cord in??!! There was some water on the floor, an electric leaf blower was in the toilet water, and I was going to be the guy who lit up both of us! I thought about how much Breanne liked Christmas lights and how I was about to become one! I did what I was told, closing my eyes. The leaf blower came to life, and I did expect to be fried! Allister yelled as water was being blown all over him, the walls, the floor, AND the tub! I pulled out the plug, and he just smiled and said, “how ‘bout that?” As Allister and Dolly aged, they lost many of their friends, some they had known since childhood. Allister had always told me when his friends passed away, that “pneumonia was an old man’s best friend.” He felt that was their peaceful end, that they would not suffer when it was their time. His time came in 2006 when he was 93 and hospitalized. Deb and I saw him on his last night in hospital, and he was thin and weak, but he still smiled his “Allister” smile. He actually looked childlike, as he was curled up in his bed. When it was time to go, he quietly said what he always said on our departures: “you go carefully.” He passed away in the wee hours, and when we heard, we all felt lost. He had called Deb “Chicken” as a pet name as she grew up, and he also used it for Breanne. We found a picture of Breanne when she was two, walking hand in hand with Allister. On the photo, I stuck a little piece of paper to show what he might be saying. It read: “walk me to Heaven, Chicken,” and that’s where I know he went.

Recovery funds not for everyone
Sharon McLeay Times Contributor Over 100 homeowners of flood ravaged Hidden Valley Golf Resort (HVGR) packed the Milo Community Hall on July 9. They expressed their outrage at being ignored by Provincial Disaster and Recovery services. Ian Donovan, Wildrose MLA for the Little Bow District, and members of the Homeowners Association Board along with Manager Dick Burgess, were on hand to listen to remarks and help get government attention for recovery needs. Danielle Smith and Jason Hale had other engagements and did not attend. No Federal, Native, Disaster Service or Conservative representatives were there to hear concerns. “The biggest block that we have had is to get communication going,” said Donovan. “This seems to be the forgotten child, so I guess this is a good place where we can raise our voice be able to get our names and numbers down. There is a good communication process here, that didn’t get washed away. We will try to lobby government and see where we go from there.” Donovan said homeowners just wanted to get an average value for houses that were destroyed or washed away. Some people were granted the $1,250 cash relief, but others were denied. Provincial definitions only allow residents who use the homes as a primary residence to receive funds from the Disaster Recovery program. Minister Doug Griffiths issued this statement regarding the issue. “As you may know, Disaster Recovery Programs provide financial assistance for homeowners to repair or rebuild their primary residence and other uninsurable property damage and loss. We have reviewed the complex ownership and residence issues at Hidden Valley Golf Resort, and have determined that homeowners at the resort, who can

LifeStyles
demonstrate they do not have another residence in Canada, will be eligible to receive funding under the Disaster Recovery Program guidelines,” said Griffiths. “I must reiterate that the Government of Alberta’s focus is on supporting Albertans who do not have a home to live in as a result of the floods. This has been our approach for all Southern Alberta communities impacted by the recent flooding and our decision regarding support for Hidden Valley residents is consistent with this principle. Vacation homes remain ineligible under the disaster recovery program.” Registration stations were set up at the Siksika Resource Development office on July 14 15. Those who lost homes can resituate free of charge, to the temporary housing set up outside High River and southeast Calgary. Thirty of the 305 HVGR residents may consider this option. Some people are snow-birds; others have a principal residence at HVGR, but rent a place elsewhere for work or vacation. Excluded residents took exception to the funding criteria and said they felt penalized. Some built homes, investing money as part of their retirement plan. Some rent homes. Many felt they all pay income tax and everyone affected by flooding should be compensated. To some the definition is based on how many nights you sleep in the same bed. It was questioned whether people in the Canmore or Calgary area were refused because they owned more than one home. It was also mentioned that parents purchased homes for their children and were denied, forcing children to move back home. Landlords owning rental units had been denied compensation, which also hurt displaced renters who have lost everything. Many owners displaced from their own homes are evicting renters, leading to a chain of pain. Residents wanted information on the reclamation of Slave Lake. They wanted to see if procedures compared to recovery for flood victims.

Hidden Valley residents allowed in
Sharon McLeay Times Contributor Three weeks after the flood, no offer for heavy equipment to clear debris, or offers for fire crews to ensure safe entry to Hidden Valley Golf Resort (HVGR) homes had been received. The week prior to July 9, homeowners had been given a bus tour of the resort; however, were unable to enter homes. Homeowner Board President Gary Nason said they had put measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety and drain the site of flood water. They then had to wait for Health Canada clearance. “Nobody wanted to get into there more than me,” said Nason. On July 10, health inspections were completed and the area lockdown was lifted. Residents were allowed organized re-entry to retrieve some of their valuables. Masks with N95 rating are mandatory, so contaminants and mould are not inhaled. Ventilation of the home an hour before entering was needed. Houses marked with red, green, black X’s or yellow tape may have overhead danger, so caution was indicated. A list of supplies www.hvgr.ca recommended to enter the homes must be brought in with those gaining entry. Some doorways have been opened, but many houses are not structurally sound. Blocked roadways were opened on July 12, and road repairs are being paid for by the province through Tom Little Child, the Siksika Fire Chief. There is still no power or electricity. To provide some relief from dealing with loss and the cleanup, a golf tournament is being organized to give residents a time to relax and enjoy time together. It will be held July 27. Registration will be at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start at 2 p.m. The cost is $109 per person which includes: driving range, 18 holes, cart and dinner. For more information e-mail [email protected] A topic still remains under stagnant water for HVGR homeowners and may delay rebuilding in the area. It concerns the soon expired lease with Siksika Nation. The band had made no previous movement to renew the lease prior to the flood. Many homeowners speculated there is not much incentive to rebuild and many may want to walk away without initiating complete cleanup efforts. “Have patience we have numbers put together that assess what it would cost to rebuild the resort. But, we have to have answers of what the Chief and Council will say,” said Nason. “There are all sorts of things going on. We have our legal counsel looking into things. There is no need for anyone else to run around getting legal counsel at this point. We will have the right answers, shortly.” New provincial regulations on rebuilding may also have an impact on decisions to rebuild. The HVGR Board will organize a general meeting to discuss issues and concerns next month.

Pathway app ready for download
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter The Strathmore Assembly of Youth (SAY) officially launched their pathway app on July 2. On Canada Day members of SAY were out promoting the app, which is only available for the iPhone at this time. “There were a lot of people that were excited and had heard about it already and we’re ready to download it, we just weren’t quite ready for them,” said SAY Chair Jonah Zankl. “I think we all figured it would be an easier process, it definitely wasn’t something we were expecting to turn so big but I think what we managed to produce was pretty cool.” The pathway app idea was created out of a suggestion that would see people getting up and active in their own community. There is often a complaint that people do not know where all of the paths are in town, or when they reach the end of one path where do they go from there? Hence the idea to provide a free way to showcase Strathmore’s pathway system. “Last year Mayor Steve came to us and he wanted something to showcase the pathways. He was looking for a map pamphlet style, we kind of went ‘well nobody uses paper maps’ so we jumped into an app instead,” said Zankl. “We came up with 15 predefined routes, so those ones we kind of planned out a little bit walking around the community but the town was able to provide all of the GPS data for us.” The new app links all of Strathmore’s pathways in one convenient location, and also has a number of features everyone can enjoy. Some of the features the app includes are suggesting routes, tracking speed, time and distance, sharing routes on Facebook and Twitter. People using the app can create their own routes, and of the routes already predetermined in the app the difficulty of the path is also listed. “We would love to see people using it, and getting outdoors and active. That was definitely our biggest push behind it is maintaining that healthy living and healthy communities. The pathways are either number one or two on the town’s outdoor priority list and then HEAL

when they did their Walkability survey a couple years ago pathway accessibility and knowing where to go next were the biggest barriers they saw to people using the paths,” said Zankl. The town will now take over the maintenance of the app said Zankl. SAY is still hoping to be able to add more features, and make the app accessible for android phones, but in order to do so must raise more funds first. The initial cost of the project, to get it where it is today, was approximately $20,000. It was thanks to sponsors like the Town of Strathmore, W. Brett Wilson, Lakewood Meadows, the Lions Club, Kinsmen Club, Crowfoot Ag Solutions and many more that the app could be created. As of July 8 there were 150 Canadian downloads of the app, and 222 worldwide. Anyone who does wish to donate can contact SAY via email at [email protected] The link to the free app is www.smorepaths.ca.

Support continues in Wyndham
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter Support continues to come in for those affected by last months flood in the Carseland-Wyndham area. On July 15 the Carseland Lions donated a cheque for $4,000 to the Global Legacy Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that stemmed from the Global Training Centre. “This is as local help as we can give. It’s amazing all the work that they have done and are still doing,” said Carseland Lions President Bert Dunsbergen. “The purpose of starting the Global Legacy Foundation was to reach out to our community, teach safety and it’s all based on safety initiatives and helping families who are in need. Everything is based around safety, and when we started working down in Wyndham and created ‘The Friends of Wyndham’ we were of course getting people who wanted to donate and we weren’t sure how we were going to go about doing that,” said Angela Beemer, editing department supervisor for Global Training Centre. “It actually fit really well to go with our non-profit, so we’re actually going to be funding ‘Friends of Wyndham’ through the Global Legacy Foundation.” There was a crew down at the site still lending a helping hand on July 16 at the Parkside Campground owned by Penny Reiterer. The campground is Reiterer’s livelihood, and the crew is hoping to help her get it operational as soon as possible. Beemer said things are going as well as they can be down there at this time. Phase 1, which included demolition, has happened, and as much mud cleanup as can be done is done. “We’re just waiting on a lot of families now to assess what they need from this point on, how long will it take before they can start rebuilding, preventing mold, that kind of stuff is what’s going on right now,” said Beemer. The support like they have gotten from Carseland Lions, will be instrumental going forward in helping the families in Wyndham. Beemer said Global Training Centre is about to go into Phase 2 but first will let the families have some time to recoup and just breathe. A crew will go back down in a few days or so and meet with each family and ask them what they need to rebuild, said Beemer. The crew will ask where the families are at in terms of dealing with flood damage. What kind of help and assistance can they get from the community? Where the families get their funding figured out and find out if they even get any funding support and when it will be coming in? “The community donations and volunteering for phase 2 is really important, that’s where we’re going to be asking for a lot of help from the trades, electricians, and plumbers, and furnace and HVAC and all them guys,” said Beemer. “That’s where this money from the Carseland Lions will be allocated, it will be for Phase 2 and any donations that come in are all allocated for Phase 2. All the money will be divided equally amongst the families of course, but we want to determine where their main needs lie.” Donations have been coming in, and Beemer said she is hoping that they keep coming in so that the families can get as much help as they can.

Pass the Salt
Pray and let God worry as I am writing this article, our family is going through some anxious times. our youngest son liam, who is three months old, has undergone a test for Cystic Fibrosis, and we are anxiously waiting for the results. we are really worried for our little boy, for his future, and as the anxiety builds up, our hearts are racing twice as fast every time the phone rings. as we are going through this time of uncertainty I am reminded of the passage from Scripture where Jesus talks about worry. He says in Matthew 6:25-34 that we don’t have to worry about anything, because He will take care of us. Jesus reassures us of his care by presenting two examples form the nature. He says that we should not worry because, if he takes care of the birds of the air, providing for them everything they need, and if He takes care of the lilies, helping them grow, than how much more will He take care of us. God is our Creator and He wants to take care of us, but when we worry, we do not allow God to intervene in our lives. By worrying we actually say that we don’t really trust that God can take care of our problems. Martin luther once said, “Pray and let God worry.” I once received this humorous illustration in my email and I want to share it with you. one man was always worrying. He worried about his children, his job, his wife, his health. one day a friend of this man noted that he was extremely calm and peaceful. “why are you so calm?” he asked. “you always worry about everything. what happened?” the former worrier replied, “I just hired a man to do the worrying for me.” “well, how much are you paying him?” His friend inquired. “a thousand dollars a week,” the man replied. “a thousand a week? you can’t afford a thousand dollars a week.” the worrier responded, “I know, but I am not worried about it. that’s his problem now!” we don’t have to pay God anything to worry for us. He does it for free. Isn’t this wonderful? once again, pray and let God worry. It is His problem afterwards. you place the situation in His hands and He will take care of everything.

Nathan Schmidt plays the librarian in Rosebud’s summer production, Underneath The Lintel.

Underneath the Lintel: Rosebud’s fun, thoughtful summer show
Laureen F. Guenther Times Contributor Rosebud Theatre’s Studio Stage presents the one-man show Underneath the Lintel: An Impressive Display of Lovely Evidences, Wednesday to Saturdays at 5 p.m., until Aug. 24. The play is directed by Paul F. Muir. Nathan Schmidt is the librarian, an endearing elderly man from the Netherlands, who’s come to present – “for one day only” – the evidences of his round-the-world trip, when he left the safety of his library to track down the patron who’d returned a book 113 years overdue. From the beginning, the librarian ties the audience into his story, wandering among us before going onstage to laboriously set up his slightlyaged equipment -- slide projector, cassette player, world map, chalkboard, large trunk – even before the house manager welcomes us and reminds us to turn off our cell phones. I was soon willing to tell myself I wasn’t there to see a play, but to hear an eccentric old man tell his true stories. Underneath the Lintel is full of puzzles and hints and multi-lingual locations, and it could have been challenging to follow, but the librarian is like a patient teacher teaching his favorite subject. He explains carefully how each clue became the next step in his journey, and does it in such a way that we feel clever for following along. And like a skilled teacher, the librarian makes us laugh and cry and sigh, as we learn to love his topic as much as he does. Several times, when he explained his next clue, I heard people around me whisper “Ah!” in their own moments of discovery. I felt we were all right on the edge of our seats, in fact, until a lady in the front row became ill. Schmidt paused his monologue but stayed in character, complete with accent, asking if the lady was all right and whether she wanted to leave. Then he resumed his role, amping up his volume and energy to make sure he’d regained our attention. Demonstrating sincere concern for the lady while continuing to act his role – that too was an “impressive display”. For tickets to Underneath the Lintel, see www. rosebudtheatre.com or call 1-800-267-7553.

Flood victims urged to move
Sharon McLeay Times Contributor On July 14, Minister Doug Griffiths announced actions to encourage flood victims who had lost their homes due to flooding to consider rebuilding in other areas. “When using Albertans’ tax dollars, we need to empower those receiving funds to make responsible choices,” said Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths, The suggested plan resembles part of the flood mitigation plan developed and put forward to the government for consideration in November 2006. George Groeneveld, MLA for Highwood area, produced an 18 point mitigation plan after the 2005 floods. www.aema.alberta.ca/images/News/ Provincial_Flood_Mitigation_Report.pdf The plan suggested flood plains be mapped, with monitoring, notification and education programs delivered, and funds be set aside to prepare for potential floods. It also recommended that the provincial government develop programs to cost-share flood mitigation measures, protecting existing developments in urban and rural areas and commercial operations. Another part of the plan was to not pay flood damages to new houses built in flood zones that had been previously notified of the danger, and discourage sales or building on crown land flood plains. An Alberta Emergency Management Association spokesman could not confirm if any of the 2006 recommendations were or were not put in place. Griffiths is suggesting if homeowners rebuild on designated flooding areas, there will be no further provincial flood compensation paid. Legislation to prevent new building on flood plains will be introduced in the fall legislature. Details for land swaps or compensation, should homeowners choose not to rebuild, are not finalized. Griffiths indicated cases would be evaluated on an individual basis.

Strathmore student does university research
Morgan Lee Times Contributor Alison Wilson, a Strathmore resident who attends the EDGE school in Calgary during the school year, was chosen to be part of the HYRS program this summer. HYRS is a program that gets Grade 11 students into real university labs to give them a taste of the research aspect of going into the sciences. “It stands for the Heritage Youth Researchers Summer program and across Alberta we place, well this year it turned out to be forty-nine students,” said Dwayne Brunner, Media Relations Manager at Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions, “so 22 at the U of A, 22 at the U of C and five at the U of L in labs and it’s a real hands-on experience.” Students must apply for these positions and are chosen based on a combination of their grades, teacher recommendations and a personal essay. They also must have completed some 20 level sciences and Math 20 and have an 85 per cent average or higher. The students work for six weeks on their research and produce a scientific poster that they then present at the end of the program. “The intent of the program is such that we give the students that hands-on research experience so that when they go back and finish Grade 12 this year, when they enter university next … fall that maybe research is one of the possibilities they consider.” Alison just began her research on July 4 and is excited about doing research in a real lab for the first time. She was encouraged by a teacher to apply for the program but has always been interested in heath sciences. “I’ve always been interested in the brain and researching different ways to develop therapy for different mental disorders, OCD, anxiety and things like that, I just thought it would be a good experience to find out if I’m interested in that, or if there’s anything else I’d like to pursue,” says Wilson. Students are paired with Masters or PhD students who act as their lab supervisor and they work on the projects together. Wilson says she was surprised by the enthusiasm in the lab. “I love working with my lab supervisor, just because he’s so knowledgeable about what we’re researching and he’s so passionate … he loves teaching and he doesn’t mind explaining it to me multiple times because he is just so passionate about what he does,” says Wilson. “I’m just enjoying learning so much.” Currently, with her lab supervisor, Wilson is researching different treatments for sleep apnea, looking at the effects of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels and receptors in the brain, and despite the pressure of doing real research, she’s having a great time. “It’s overwhelming to be in a real lab, the technologies they use, it’s so different from high school doing little labs,” says Wilson. “It’s just so cool, there are so many different aspects, it’s not just bio, you’re mixing solutions and setting up electrical circuits and it’s really fun.” Students in the program also attend different tours and lectures about different aspects of science, which could help them in choosing which universities to

A musical cadet
Morgan Lee Times Contributor Strathmore’s Hayley Davis, 17, a cadet in the 903 Strathmore RCAC Squadron, has travelled to Penhold, Alta. this summer for a special program. She is making music in the Advanced Musicians Course at the Penhold Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (PACSTC). For two and a half years Davis has been a part of the cadet program and she is excited about the program now and for the future. “To me, being a cadet means adventure, a way to find a career that I can be proud of,” says Davis. The course, which lasts six weeks, trains cadets in whichever instrument they choose. Davis will spend time oneon-one with military band personnel and professional musicians in order to build on the musical skills she already has. This summer program not only promotes a deeper knowledge in music, but also promotes the development of leadership skills, citizenship and physical fitness, all while making lasting friend-

apply to in Grade 12. Wilson says she’s having fun and learning about how research is done. Hher favorite parts are the experiments. “Starting an experiment and actually seeing how it worked, (my lab supervisor) explained what he thought was going to be the outcome, but it was cool seeing the results for yourself.” The program has been running for 14 years, and while many of the students in the program go on to be physicians, many also decide to continue with research. “Some of (the students) have stayed in the research track and they’re just now completing their masters and their PhD level courses and will go on and hopefully become lead investigators in their own labs here in Alberta, it’s kind of cool,” says Brenner. While Wilson isn’t sure if her future holds research or med school, after one week in the program she’s sure about one thing. “I definitely think I’m going to stick with the brain.”

Big stars, big benefit
Morgan Lee Times Contributor On Saturday, August 3 right after the Strathmore Stampede Parade, Byron Smith Ford is hosting a benefit barbeque event, set to last well into the afternoon. This event is set to be full of excitement with face painting and miniature horses and Spolumbo’s Sausages, as well as some big name entertainment. Jake Mathews, who played the barbeque last year, and Beverly Mahood, will be playing at the event, and the dealership is hoping for a big turnout. Mathews will be starting things off at 1 p.m. while Mahood will play at 3 p.m., with the young talented pianist Christian Laurian playing between the sets. “We had 750 people through here last year for the barbeque and I’m thinking we’ll have over a thousand this year, “ says Byron Smith, owner of Byron Smith Ford. Both artists have long careers in the country music scene and currently have hit singles on the country radio, Mathews’ “Beer Necessities,” and Mahood’s “Hope and Gasoline.” Getting these names to play this show is very important to Smith, as he’s looking to draw a big crowd for an important reason. “What we’re going to do is… we’re not asking people, when they come for a sausage that they’ve got to pay for a sausage, that’s all free, but we’re going to have donations,” says Smith, “all of the proceeds will go to Strathmore Crisis Center, the Food Bank and the Siksika Nation Flood Victims.” Doing a fundraiser like this for the community is important to Smith, as he is passionate about giving back. “I think it’s my corporate responsibility to help my community,” says Smith, “we want to protect our customer base and we want to protect our community in the best ways that we can. A lot of these associations are struggling or need money to help maintain the good things that they’re doing.” “I feel strongly about giving back, it makes me feel good when we’ve done something that can make somebody else smile.” Mathews said he had a great time last year and is eager to come back. “(Byron) contacted us to see if we wanted to be part of his barbeque and of course I said yes, it sounded like it would be a lot of fun and it was,” says Mathews “I think he said he had about 750 people there last year and it was a great crowd, and yeah it was a lot of fun.” Though this event is a comparatively small venue when you look at it against other rodeo events Mathews has played, like the Calgary Stampede’s Nashville North, for instance, there’s something special about playing a small crowd, he says. “In a sense you feel a lot more connected to the audience,” says Mathews “doing an acoustic show gives you the opportunity to tell a little bit of a story behind the song which is always cool and always fun to do because a lot of people wonder where songs some from.” Of course, after playing the barbeque last year, Mathews is no stranger to playing for the benefit of a community. “I think it’s just really important, if you’re in a position where you can give back, that you do everything that you can to help.” Mahood is also thrilled to play in Strathmore, and says that small venues are sometimes the best ones. “You know what, there’s nothBeverly Mahood ing you don’t like about (small shows), they are the best venues to play,” says Mahood, “audiences out here in Alberta are just the nicest people. I think it’s just because you’re genuine people and you’re country music fans, so it’s always a pleasure to play for an audience who knows who you are, knows your songs and seeing that back, there’s no greater feeling than that.” Not only is she excited to play in Strathmore, she’s eager to help out with the benefit. Mahood feels very strongly about helping people and giving back to others. Jake Mathews “I think it is so important in life to give back, any time that good things are happening for you, you should always know that that’s great, and that’s all in the one hand and the other hand is to help other people,” says Mahood. “It’s just so important to remember because you know, you have to look outside your own little box you’re in and that little bubble and know that there are people in need, there are people that need help, and a lot of times the hardest thing for someone to do that needs help is to ask, so when someone does, you want to make sure you’re there for them.” Byron Smith Ford is hoping for a great turnout this year to help these charities in these especially trying times. “We want this to last throughout the afternoon, we just want to make it a huge hit, I couldn’t believe the amount of people that were here last year…and this year I want to go for more,” says Smith.

Pallesen’s Dalbey Farm recognized at Stampede
Aryssah Stankevitsch Times Reporter This year marks the 17th season that BMO and the Calgary Stampede have combined to award the BMO Farm Family of the Year, an honour reserved for a farm that has made a difference in their community, upholds western heritage, and respects family values. Sixteen areas were recognized, including the Dalbey Farm, run by the Pallesens, for Wheatland County. Barry Pallesen and his wife Pauline run the farm now with their daughters Jenny and Kirsten, but the operation began in the early 1930’s with Barry’s grandparents, who were Danish immigrants. In 1951, Barry’s father Olav came to Canada after the war, met his wife Rita, and the agricultural tradition continued. Though the farm started in Beynon, it expanded to the Dalum area in the mid 1960’s (which is how the farm earned its name “Dalbey”). “You don’t get anywhere on the farm without hard work, and back in those days it was much more manual labour than what we are doing now,” Barry said. Dad, 83, and mom, 78 still assist on the farm too. “He’s more in the support capacity than in the equipment operation, but helps to move the cattle, and spent every day on the combine in 2012,” said Barry. “Mom has kind of stepped away from doing more on farm work but she certainly looks after their big yard and garden still, as does my father.” Nowadays, Rita spends a lot of time volunteering at the hospital in Drumheller and playing the organ at church. Olav has been on the church council, and community hall board - as have Barry and his wife. “Our daughters have been raised to volunteer both in the community and at school,” said Barry, whose children help out at the Salvation Army and the Boys & Girls Club. “They have continued in what we feel is important. If you didn’t do it, you would feel out of place in this family.” The farm has 4,000 acres cultivated of wheat and canola, and 1,500 acres of pasture supporting their 140 cow calves pairs, which are bred from Black Angus or Charolais bulls. They birth the calves, and sell them in the fall to feed lots. It’s a hefty operation, one that they hope to keep in the family for a fourth generation with Barry’s daughter Kirsten; she’s currently at Olds College studying animal health technology. “It looks as if she’s going to continue with it, and that’s wonderful. When you see your child wants to continue with things, it makes what you’re doing seem more rewarding,” Barry said. Each generation has proudly taken the lead of the business for the family farm. “Just because, right now, I’m the decision maker doesn’t put me at the head of anything. It’s just my turn. The transition among all the generations has been good, and everyone gets along,” Barry said. “We all have the same goal: it’s not about making money, it’s about doing a good job and being satisfied with what you’ve done.” As agriculture continues to grow, farm families like the Pallesens will play an important role in driving agriculture industry in the west. “The challenge of raising these cattle and doing this fieldwork is absolutely huge, but, man, is it rewarding at the end of the year when it’s all come together,” said Barry. “There’s not better business than agriculture right now.” On July 8, the Pallesens were presented with a personalized farm gate sign, and tickets to the Stampede rodeo, for their hard work and contributions on and off of the farm.

“Family and agriculture lie at the heart of Stampede’s values,” said Bob Thompson, president and chairman of the Alberta Agricultural Service Board in a press release. “As Alberta becomes increasingly urban, we strive to find ways to draw connections back to our rural surroundings and roots. The families being recognized today embody that connection.” “There are many in both the county and our small farming area of Dalum, that would be very much deserving of this, but it’s a real honour to be nominated and thought of,” said Barry Pallesen. “It was a very proud day.”

Controlling Alberta’s weeds
Shannon LeClair Times Reporter Now that the sun is shining and the rain seems like it will be taking a hiatus, Wheatland County’s Weed Inspector Ron Bartholow is going to be even busier. The rain brings with it both a blessing and a curse to farmers and to Bartholow. On one hand it helps the crops grow, but on the other hand it also helps the weeds grow. It is up to the farmers and the County Weed Inspector to try to control the weeds. “Farmers have been doing this for a long time, they do field surveys on a regular basis and they set up a program where in a lot of cases they do pre crop burn down, they crop spray, they even do post crop spraying for perennial control,” said Bartholow. “They do a lot of desiccating these days and desiccating means that they use a spray formula for ripening up their crop and in doing so they actually get good weed control later in the season,” Crops like peas have always been desiccated, said Bartholow, and now farmers are starting to do it to other crops to harvest them on their time, not on Mother Nature’s time. “When we talk about weed control everybody thinks we go out and spray everything, but we use an integrated pest management procedure where we use mechanical means, we use hand pulling, of course chemical is a part of it, we use bio controls here in this county,” said Bartholow. “I have a number of releases for scentless chamomile along the Bow River. We use any method that actually works, is cost effective and gets the job done.” Integrated pest management means various methods of handling weeds, mechanical, cultural, chemical and biological that all work together. Bartholow said you don’t necessarily always go with the spray end of it, there are times you have to get out there and use the other means. Bartholow’s main duties fall under the Alberta Weed Control Act and Regulations, which aims to regulate noxious weeds, prohibited noxious weeds and weed seeds through controlled measures. There are 26 noxious weeds on the list that need to be controlled, and then there are 46 prohibited noxious weeds to be eradicated. By controlling you can prevent the propagation of seeds or roots or whatever the case may be said Bartholow. Timing is very important, in the County he deals with weeds that are annual, bi-annual and perennial and each one is handled a little differently. “Annuals you do early in the year. Bi-annuals you try to get the rosette early in the year or if they’re into the stock area already, like if they’re growing up into shoots, then you wait until blooming and you just cut them off and they’re done,” said Bartholow. “Perennials are usually a fall application to control them. You can top burn them all year long but to wipe them right out you use a fall program, that’s the time of year they translocate.” A lot of the ‘weeds’ on the list are actually flowers that people have brought in to plant in their flowerbeds. They make the noxious weed list because they are invasive. No plants native to Alberta are on the list, nor will they ever be, according to Bartholow. “They are escaped ornamentals, people have brought them in, planted them in their flowerbed and they took off out into the wild so to speak,” said Bartholow. “Dandelions aren’t on our weed list, they’ll probably never be because they’re so wide spread there is no way in the world to eradicate them. You can control them to a point but you can’t put them on the list because they’re just too wide spread. “The only ones on there are what we call invasive non-native plants. Invasive as you know means they wont stay put and they do move around. They can infest to the detriment to farmers, or anyone actually.” Bartholow is the only Weed Inspector for the County. All summer long he travels along county roads checking the weeds in the area. “When I see problems that need to be dealt with then I go to the landowner and I meet with them and we come up with a program. If it’s County property we handle that ourselves, we mow our roadsides and we spot spray our roadsides,” said Bartholow. When he first came to work for the county he would get about 40 or 50 weed complaints a year from people. Now he says that number has dropped to one or two a year but he gets 40 to 50 requests for assistance in dealing with weed problems. “The most common weed is probably Canada Thistle. We have a bit of an issue with Yellow Toadflax and these again are some of the ones under the act. Some Leafy Spurge, we deal with a little bit of Hoary Cress in a few areas, we’re getting it cleaned up it’s been here for a millennium,” said Bartholow. “We have some Black Henbane and some common Burdock in areas. Along the river we used to have an issue with Purple Loosestrife, when I first started here there was an estimated 110,000 plants along the Bow River, last year I think we counted 33, we killed 33, that’s all we have left so it’s been a bit of a success that story.” The Alberta Invasive Species Council have put out many brochures on weeds that we shouldn’t be planting and weeds that we can plant and that’s what they call weed wise planting. The 2012 Alberta Invasive Plant Identification Guide can be found by going to http://www.wheatlandcounty. ca/index.aspx?NID=260. There you will be able to determine if the lovely new plant you are bringing home is one the list, or if it is safe to plant in your garden.

Silver Shark Swim Club wraps up successful year
Aryssah Stankevitsch Times Reporter
The Strathmore Venom celebrate after a goal in their 15-11 win over the Lacoka Locos in Strathmore on July 12. The team finished the season with a record of approximately .500. Cody Betterton and Brady Morris each had nine points in the last game of the season.

On July 12, the Strathmore Venom pulled through a 15-11 victory over the Lacoka Locos, finishing off their season second in the division. On July 17, the Venom had their opening playoff game against Innisfail, for which results were not available at the time of print. The Venom were 3-1 against Innisfail this season, only losing to them in the first game of the year. “We have some key players coming off injuries,” said Coach Hal Morris. “As far as strategies, we’ll probably maintain the same position we had throughout the year. We’ve had good luck against Innisfail. We’ve always played pretty hard against those guys.” Morris mentioned a few standout players on the team, including league-leading scorer Cody Betterton. He also noted his son, Brady Morris, who finished fourth in league scoring in just his first year of junior lacrosse. Both players had nine points each against the Locos last Friday. “The team as a whole played absolutely excellent,” said Hal Morris of the Lacoka game. “We kind of fell asleep in the second period, but finally woke up in the third.” The team, made up of 16 to 21-year-olds, has impressed their coach with their amount of discipline, especially in their own end. “Defensive play has been very good the last few games. We’ve changed our system up a little bit, we’ve simplified it which makes it tougher for other teams,” he said. Should the Venom win on July 17 against Innisfail, they will have their next game on July 19 in Red Deer.

This season, Strathmore’s Silver Shark Swim club increased their numbers with 15 more participants than last year, totaling their swimmers to 94 after tryouts in April. The kids, ages 6-17, participated in either competitive or non-competitive meets, in the club’s sixth year. “You can start out in the club as a non-competitive swimmer, where you don’t attend sanctioned swim meets,” said Coach Jen Mertz. “We’ll do some fun meets within the club but you can start off just doing it because you love the sport.” Around ages 10-12, the Silver Sharks coaches encourage swimmers to make choices about where they want to see their swimming career go. Some choose to race at meets against other clubs, while others join Sport For Life—a group for swimmers who have probably decided competitive swimming isn’t for them. Heather Kelly, one of the coaches, leads the kids in swimming for fun, and keeps them fit. The swim club trains out of the Aquatic Centre, but does their dry-land training out of the Bank Athletic Club. Most of their swim meets take place in Southern Alberta, but can travel farther once Provincials begin. Swimmers race for Age Group Trials and from their times there, can compete in Age Group Champs. Kids can qualify for Champs by winning their age group, or making the provincial percentage standard for their age group. First they compete in heats with others in similar

speed, and then in the finals they compete against their age group (U10, ages 11 and 12, etc.). Kianna Doig of the Sharks won gold and silver at Age Group Trials, and moved on to Age Group Champs. Logan Schoepp won silver in the 50 m fly, but unfortunately did not qualify for Age Group Champs with his finishing time. A first for the swim club: Tamara Adamschek went to Age Group Champs, and qualified for Western Nationals. Overall, the club sent four swimmers to Age Group Champs, and four to Senior Champs. “Medals are a pretty amazing thing at Age Group Trials,” said Coach Mertz. “They have you up on the podium. It’s great.”

HELMER, Kathleen Joyce
With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of this amazing lady Kathleen Joyce Helmer. Joyce leaves behind the love of her life, best friend and husband Jim of 52 years. Even though she did not fulfill her 60 year contract of marriage, we know she will in spirit. She leaves behind her son Ken and his spouse Nancy, grandchildren Jordon and Maddison; her son Rob and his spouse Lisa, and grandchildren Anthony and Brittany. Leaving behind also is Joyce’s mother Elaine Fletcher; sisters Jackie Hynes (Max), Mary Dobbs, Diane Morin, Joanne Scarlett (fiancé Frank Markusic) and numerous nieces and nephews. Joyce was predeceased by her father Jack Fletcher, brothers-in-law Brian Dobbs and Larry Morin. Joyce was also an honorary mother to David and Allison Williams, grandmother to Alysa, Alexandra, Bronwyn, Ariana and great grandmother to Taylor, and also honorary mother to Rick and Cindy Brilz, and grandmother to Krista and Jessica. Joyce and Jim spent many happy hours at their home away from home playing bingo at the Grey Eagle. Joyce will be missed by all who knew her. She was like a ray of sunshine when she walked or rode her scooter into a room. Joyce had a kind loving heart that touched everyone she came into contact with and opened her heart to all. Joyce had a soul of an angel. A celebration of Joyce’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please hug your loved ones and if you choose, make a donation to a charity of your choice.

Proposal at annual ball tourney
Eighteen teams were registered for this years 31st annual Lyalta ball tournament. The tournament ran from July 12-14, campers from Strathmore, Chestermere and Calgary set up early to get a good spot. This year’s caberat was full by midnight and to the surprise of everyone. Drew Gregory (local singer) proposed to his girlfriend Erin Wegener. The couple met at the Lyalta Ball Tournament six years ago. “This is a first for us, it is so exciting” explains tournament organizer Kim Proust. A big thank you goes out to the Strathmore Girl Guides for running the concession this year. The final games were played on Sunday afternoon, the winners of the tournament this year were the Outlaws (A division), Dazed and Confused (B division) and The Schooners (C division).

Mertz to compete in London
Aryssah Stankevitsch Times Reporter Kevin Mertz of Strathmore will be traveling to London, England to compete in the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Championships Sept. 11-15, representing Canada in the 35-39 age group. This is only his fourth season of competing in triathlons, and he’s already qualified for the World Finals again next year, taking place in Edmonton beginning Aug. 26. “I just tried it out, I kind of enjoyed the training more than competing, but tried competing and did fairly well,” Mertz said. “Every time I compete, I seem to get a little better. Now I’m at a point where I’m top in my age group in the province.” On June 23 in Edmonton, Mertz came second at provincials. This past weekend, he completed the Olympic triathlon distance in Chestermere (1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 10 km run), though typically he races a 750 m swim, a 20 km bike, and a 5 km run – sprint triathlon lengths. His goal typically is to finish in “under an hour, but it totally depends on the course,” he said. In the mornings, Mertz alternates swims and runs, then bikes and does strength/flexibility training in the evenings. “I train every day, when I’m training hard,” he said. Though he didn’t compete in the event this year, as he was in Edmonton for Provincials, Mertz also helps organize the Tri-Smore in town.

It’s located on George Freeman trail and is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday Strathmore Stampede weekend, and is set to stay open until the fall. Every year a new pattern is laid out in the cornfield. This year the maze pattern is extra special because it’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cheadle Lions Club and the 75th anniversary of the Strathmore Lions Club. There are also picnic tables on site for groups who want to sit or have lunch, and the maze is very family friendly. There is a small fee to enter the maze, and it’s open in the afternoon and evening. Three years ago the Cheadle Lions Club wanted to make something to give back to the community, and three years later it’s still here. The maze is celebrating the longstanding Lion’s Club tradition in Cheadle and Strathmore, and it looks like it’s turning into a tradition in itself.
