The main street improvement project scheduled for


2014 was for surface and underground improvements to
Lakeside Blvd. On May 7, Jesse Parker, director of operations and engineering with the town, presented council
with the tender results for the project.
The town had received four tenders, ranging in price
from $2,615,660.75 to $3,054,709.92.
These amounts are significantly higher than our budget for the project itself. I indicated in the background
information that our budget for the project was approximately $1.6 million, that was based on pricing that we
received for last years project on Thomas Drive largely,
said Parker.
We carried some of that information (forward) to create
our budget going into 2014. Unfortunately the pricing and
some of the scope of work has increased that price.
The lowest bid was from Volker Stevin, a company the
town has worked with in the past, and one that comes
with good recommendations.
Parker said that in light of the difference between the
budget and the tender one of the recommendations administration has is using the funds for infrastructure replacements.
At the end of 2013 Parker had approached council about
carrying over funds allocated to 2013 infrastructure replacements into 2014. Those funds must be used in 2014,
and he suggested that they could be used towards the
Lakeside Blvd street improvement project.
By utilizing those funds there would be an additional
$1,090,000 which, when combined with the funds for this
year, would compensate for the difference.
By consolidating those into the $1.6 million that we
have for the project itself that will get us to about four per
cent above the bid that was the low bid, said Parker.
One of the considerations made since determining the
budget item is the planned revitalization of downtown
and the increased density. With the current system there
is not a lot of ability for higher density without increasing
the capacity of the water and sewer, which hadnt originally been planned for. It was suggested that larger pipes
would also be needed to accommodate that future growth.
Councillor Rocky Blokland questioned what would be
sacrificed if the funds were moved over for the project. By
moving the funds it will put the town a year or two behind
on some of the planned infrastructure replacement, but
at the same time it will be used to replace a significant
amount of infrastructure on Lakeside Blvd.
To change the scope of the project, possibly lessening
the amount of work that would happen, it would mean
the project would need to be re-tendered.

Continued from Page 1


The town paid approximately $400 a linear metre for
Thomas Drive; the Lakeside Blvd the project was over $800 a
linear metre, a drastic change in just over a year.
I was surprised that, that underground price did what it
did, but it was consistent throughout the tenders, said Parker.
A suggestion given to administration by other municipalities is that the engineering could be done in the fall of 2014
and they could be ready to tender in January and possibly
get started in March or April. There could be weather challenges, but there could be potentially a six-month construction timeline.
In the town all road construction must be completed before

the Heritage Days weekend, which can be tough for a contractor. Parker thinks some of the cost could be a reflection
of that extra pressure and the possibility of running behind
on finishing the project.
The risk with doing it after Heritage Days is there could be
weather problems; its not a lot of breathing room and could
potentially raise the price higher.
This one (Lakeside Blvd) is essential because as you stated it is the parade route and it is right downtown, but maybe
we need a bit of a philosophy change in regards to some of
the other roads that we do in this town, that theres not such
a rush to have them always done by Heritage Days, said
Councillor Pat Fule.
There are some roads in town that arent likely to be utilized by people attending Heritage Days, and Fule questioned whether they really need to be done beforehand; will
it really ruin the look of the town in peoples eyes, because
if it is driving up the price is it worth it?
Council asked Parker or his opinion on the matter. He
doesnt feel the town would be getting great value for their
money, and believes it is because of some of the constraints
and pressure put on the contractor, but said he isnt sure how
the pricing will be affected if the project is delayed.
It is a roadway that is the entrance to our town, its along
our major park, its the entrance to the downtown from a
revitalization; it was a project we chose to demonstrate our
commitment to downtown revitalization, said Parker.
Theres an opportunity for us to also set the stage for
increased density to the downtown with improvements we
make to the infrastructure theres also that side of things.
Yeah were not getting great value but its never going to be
an easy project to do given some of the challenges.
Peterson made a motion to postpone the project until January 2015, and to carry the funds, $1.6 million, into the 2015
year to be assigned to the project, and that council direct
administration to move forward with tendering in the fall of
2014.
The motion passed with councillors Fule and John Rempel
opposed to the motion.

Calgary Kart Racing Club closer to construction


Shannon LeClair
Times Reporter

In July 2013 the Calgary Kart Racing Club (CKRC) made
a presentation to the previous council about the possibility of moving their facility into town. At the May 7 meeting
Werner Fischer, with the towns planning and development
department, presented council with a development permit
application.
The CKRC would like to build a multi-use recreational motorsports park. The park is not a rental facility. It is club-run,
and use of it will be by appointment only.
The use being proposed is defined as an outdoor recreation service in the Land Use Bylaw, and the current zoning
for the area, which in the southeast corner of town is M1
restricted light industrial district.
In order to be able to approve the application, council
needs to treat an outdoor recreation service similar to an
indoor recreation service.
The land-use district allows indoor recreation services as
an allowable use, but not outdoor recreation service which
we suggest perhaps is a deficiency of the bylaw which will
be remedied when the new bylaw comes out, said Fischer.
He said it is far more common to put outdoor recreation
facilities in an industrial park because there are fewer potential land-use conflicts and impacts on adjacent neighbours
than there are with an indoor recreation service.
The town owns the parcel of land being discussed and
there is a tentative agreement to lease 20 acres of the site to
CKRC for the facility.
Fischer said administrations main concern is that they
want to minimize the risk of any land-use conflicts as new

Yee Haw!

development happens closer to this facility.


One of the suggestions that development has is that the
site be shifted north from the quarter-section line by about
20 metres, which will enable the possibility of an east-west
road to be put through there in the future if need be, while
also keeping it away from the county boundary.
A six-metre setback is being suggested for all around the
facility, which would enable the construction of a landscaped
berm of about 2.5 feet in the future if needed.
By and large we dont see any issues with it, at least not
that cant be managed in the future, said Fischer, though he
did indicate the county has some concerns.
Fischer said administration does anticipate that the building of the facility and the track will be phased over a period
of time, so when new development is added CKRC would
come back for a development permit.
Councillor Denise Peterson said council was well satisfied
after watching video footage and talking to the group about
the noise being controlled as best as it could be, and suggested that the same video and information be shared with
the county to alleviate their concerns as well.
Noise is always the first concern anyone has when a facility like this is being proposed. Fischer said there would be
different vehicles with different engines and noise levels; the
loudest vehicle will be 85 to 89 decibels at the distance of
one metre. Based on administrations calculations the owner
with the closest farmstead is 762 metres away; at that distance they will still get a residual of about 65 decibels which
will be noticeable, but Fischer thinks it will be mitigated by
the white noise from Hwy 1.
Council unanimously approved the development permit
application as a discretionary use.

Composting in Strathmores future


Shannon LeClair
Times Reporter

Colin Huxted of H&H Huxted Enterprises has never been shy about his
desire to decrease his, and the towns,
carbon footprint. On May 7 Huxted
spoke before town council about his
plans and hopes to bring composting
to town.
I believe it is something that we
need to do here, something that should
be here, its time for it, said Huxted.
What you can do with compost is incredible, said Huxted; there could be a
25 per cent reduction of waste in the
landfill. Huxteds already collects quite
a bit of compost material, grass, sod,
tree leaves and so on.
Alberta environment has three different classes of compost sites, if you
are composting less than 100 metric
tonnes a year you are not required to
have all of the permits.
Huxted said the town will be under
the 100 tonne limit, but it will result in
a savings of $108 a tonne in the landfill.
We would like to start a little bit of
a pilot program and set it up so we
can start to compost this material, said
Huxted.
If this pilot project works, within
a couple of years we can move into a
level 2 and we will save the town hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Huxted has no doubt that the project

will work, and said when the product


is finished it could be used in green
spaces around town and can help save
the water and feed the plants.
Huxteds will supply all of the equipment, and may need a little help from
the town once in a while in terms of
equipment, but doesnt see that happening very often.
There will be no cost to the town,
and if we fail, which we wont, but if
we fail you lose nothing, you just lose a
lot of hard work and sweat that we put
in, but Im not going to lose. I am very
confident that with his help (Bruce) we
can make it work, said Huxted.
He is looking at the possibility of
purchasing a machine that will pulverize the glass and turn it back into
sand that can be used in various
ways around town. He also suggests
Huxteds will be getting a little more
creative to find uses for some of the
plastics for which there is currently no
market. There are also plans to accept

wood and make mulch. Huxteds will


even dye it a number of different colours so if someone wants blue mulch,
they can make it.
Huxteds request to the town was to
lease the three acres, and he will compost, look after the cement, load the
asphalt and maintain the site at no cost
to the town.
Im enthralled, Im enthusiastic
and Im very excited about this whole
thing, said Councillor Bob Sobol.
This is one of the most exciting initiatives that I have seen come forward
and I am just so supportive of Bobs
motion and of the future possibilities,
said Councillor Denise Peterson.
The rest of council echoed the same
sentiments. Huxted was invited to
bring a business proposal and outline
to administration to look over so that
recommendations and further details
could be discussed about the future
initiative. The matter should be back
before council at the May 21 meeting.

Men with erection problems are best advised to


talk to their doctor for advice. The many cures
found on-line and in magazines are not based on
scientific evidence and are a waste of money.
Massive polio vaccination projects in India have
resulted in no new cases of polio in the past three
years. Through the efforts of the UN, The Bill and
Amanda Gates Foundation, Rotary clubs around
the world and others, have helped achieved that
marvellous goal. In neighbouring Pakistan, there is
much resistance to the vaccine and the polio is still
infecting disabling many children in that country.
Hookah-smoking is the practice of smoking by
drawing the smoke through water before inhaling.
It sounds like it should be a safer alternative to
smoking cigarettes but it is not. Even after passing
through water, the smoke still contains high levels
of toxic agents than could cause bladder, lung and
oral cancers.
Some medications can slow down our intestinal
tract and we could experience some constipation.
One easy, natural way to counteract this problem
is to eat a few dried apricots. Four or five per day
should help. Be careful not to overdose because it
could cause the reverse problem.

Correction
On Page 1 of the May 2 edition of the Strathmore Times,
in the article Dog Owner Weary it was stated that the dog Hank had
been taken to the vet. This was not the case, he was only checked over
by his owner. The investigation into the incident has wrapped up
and there will be no charges laid.

Members from the First and Second Strathmore Cub Scouts gathered at the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints church to participate
in a Pine Car Rally. The cars were built and designed by the cubs.
They were raced down an elevated track, to determine the winners.
Family members were invited and members said they enjoyed the
exciting action and family fun.

Pine Car rallies Scouts


creative car and most enthusiasm.
We are not here for the prizes. We are out here
to get together, to have fun and have a good day.
The Cub Scout motto is Do Your Best, so we just
want them to try to do their best, said Rachynski.
Rachynski said there are personal growth lessons, communication skills and getting along with
others through the activity.
I had one kid that came up to me and say I
failed today because he didnt win. I told him you
didnt win, but you didnt fail.there is a difference, said Rachynski. For me, it helped me out,
because I get to learn how to deal with kids who
are discouraged.
Rachynski said leaders have a great opportunity
for learning, if they volunteer to mentor Scouts.
For me, I got into the program partly because
my kids were interested in having me as a leader. It
also challenged me to do something I was not comfortable with, which was standing up and speaking in front of a group of people. In this case, it
happens to be largely kids, but we often have parents coming in, so I have to be the face of Scouts
Canada. I benefit because I am learning leadership
skills, teaching leadership skills, as well as crafting
skills and outdoor skills, said Rachynski.
The group is looking forward to the next event
that involves 200 Cub Scouts heading to the woods
for a weekend of camping. Cuborama is held at the
end of May, where Cub Scouts in Calgary and surrounding areas gather in a camping environment,
to explore activities centered on a theme. This
years theme is space. There will be another camp
excursion involving all age groups of Scouts from
the Strathmore area.
The Scouts also give back to the community. The
Beaver group is running the canoe races for Canada Day and members help in food services at the
fairgrounds as well.
You will probably see us in this years parade
and we often help out at Heritage days too, said
Rachynski.
Anyone with children who would like more information on Scouts can access www.scouts.ca or
call Ken Rachynski at 403-629-7781, for more info
specific to the Strathmore area.

It was bumper to bumper at the Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints church, as cars roared down the
track to the finish line.
The cars were crafted by the First and Second
Strathmore Cub Scouts, who gathered at the church
along with their parents, extended families and
leaders, for a day of socialization and fun that went
along with a Pine Car Rally.
It is not currently an annual event, but following our race on the weekend, we had a lot of kids
saying they were looking forward to an event next
year; so, I think we will continue it, said Cub Scout
leader Ken Rachynski.
The First Strathmore Scout troop has 16 members ages eight to 10-years-old. They meet at a
building on the Strathmore Ag grounds. The second group is based in the church and it has 12
members. About 16 Cub Scouts from the combined
group participated in the event.
Rachynski said the cars are homemade by the
boys and their families, and there are rules about
how they should be made.
The children are provided with a little block of
pine and told the measurements where wheels
should be inserted. What happens next is all up to
their creativity.
There were a couple of pickup trucks, one kid
just drilled a hole in top of his block and put in a
Lego driver, and others went fairly simple and just
coloured the blocks and attached the wheels. Some
of our parents are woodworkers, so those kids cars
tend to be a little fancier, said Rachynski. In previous years, we have brought in parents with woodworking skills and they helped the boys cut out the
cars and then they painted them up.
For this years event the leaders borrowed a big
gravity-based three-lane track. It is like a ramp that
tapers down at the end. There is a release mechanism that is pulled down and whatever car gets
down first is the winner. Winners for first, second
and third positions had playoffs. There were some
donations given for prizes, which were given out
to winners in categories like race winning, most

National Day of Honour commemorating Canadas military commitment in Afghanistan


Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot
Parliamentary Report

Canadians across the country can commemorate the end
of Canadas military commitment in Afghanistan by attending events at local military bases, legion halls, or many
other events on the National Day of Honour. On Friday
May 9, all Canadians can stand together to honour the sacrifices made during Canadas 12-year Afghanistan mission
(2001 to 2014).
During Canadas mission in Afghanistan, the strength
and courage demonstrated by our men and women in uniform serving on the battlefield and supported by personnel
from other government departments advanced Canadas
national interests in the fight against terrorism. More than
40,000 members of the Canadian Armed Forces served in
Afghanistan for over 12 years.
In the summer of 2010, the House of Commons Special Committee on the Canadian Mission in Afghanistan
travelled there on a fact finding mission. I was elected to
Chair the Committee and it was my duty to lead the mission on behalf of my fellow Members of Parliament, both
the Government Parliamentary Secretaries and Opposition
Party Chief Critics. I hosted and conducted meetings we
had with everyone including top-ranking military officials
and Afghan citizens.
I can assure you that there is probably no place on earth
farther away from our prosperous and peaceful Crowfoot
riding. I saw how fortunate we all are here at home in
contrast to the daily struggles of the Afghan people. It was
truly inspiring to see the determination and optimism of all

Thought for
the Week
~

Patience
means
waiting
without
worrying

the Afghan officials and citizens that our committee met. Equally impressive was the competency
of our own Canadian Forces personnel, RCMP,
Correctional Services, Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development and other civilian
agencies.
There will be numerous events held on the National Day of Honour. During the lead-up, the
Soldier On Afghanistan Relay a relay team of
18 ill and injured veterans and one civilian is
taking place from May 4 to 9. They will be carrying the last flag from Afghanistan in a specially
built baton to be passed on through communities between Trenton and Ottawa and ultimately
to Prime Minister Harper, who will accept the
flag on behalf of Canadians.
There will be a True Patriot Love Breakfast - a
private breakfast for families of the fallen on the
morning of May 9. A service for the fallen will
follow with a private ceremony within Senate
Chambers with His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of
Canada, Prime Minister Harper, Rob Nicholson,

Minister of National Defence, and General Lawson. This event will recognize the fallen and tie
their sacrifices to Parliament.
The National Day of Honour parade will begin
at 12:30 p.m. starting at the National War Museum in Ottawa. The Parade will arrive on Parliament Hill and be received by the Governor General of Canada where there will be a vice regal
inspection and a 21-gun salute. Two minutes of
silence will be observed across Canada.

riding, please visit http://www.app.forces.gc.ca/

Harper Government launches new seniors program


From the Offices of Kevin Sorenson

The Honourable Kevin Sorenson, Minister of
State (Finance) and Member of Parliament for
Crowfoot, is pleased to announce that the Harper Government is now seeking applications for
projects that will help seniors continue to make
a difference in their communities through the
New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP).
These community-based projects help empower seniors to share their knowledge, skills
and experiences with others and support communities by increasing their capacity to address
local issues, said Sorenson. I encourage seniors
groups and organizations throughout our Crowfoot riding to apply. Our local seniors know best
what projects would improve and enhance local

vents
cial e
spe

services and facilities.


The call for proposals will close on Friday,
July 4. Organizations may receive up to $25,000
in grant funding. Projects must address one or
more of the programs five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder
abuse, social participation and capital assistance.
I have always appreciated being able to work
with all the communities in our riding to qualify, said Sorenson. By investing through the
New Horizons for Seniors Program, our Government is working to ensure that seniors maintain
a good quality of life and continue to be active
members of our communities.
For more information and application forms

Letters to the editor

Questions that need answers


To the Editor
A couple of issues that I would like to bring to
the attention of my fellow Strathmore residents: We
have been encouraged to shop locally. Why, in the
2014 budget, did council approve the purchase of a
vehicle for administration outside of our community?
Strathmore has vehicle dealerships to make such purchases. Now that the Toyota Sienna has been bought
in Calgary, the Calgary dealership will be benefitting
from all future issues arising from said purchase including repairs and maintenance. While the price for
the vehicle purchased may have been lower, the vehicles future costs should have been kept local. This
also should apply to the equipment for our parks and
lawn care.
Street Sweeping
As a taxpayer in the Town of Strathmore, I have
concerns with how the street sweeping is going so far.
Not everyone may know, but the towns higher-ups
decided to purchase a used street sweeper for over
$100,000 this past spring, thinking that town employees could do a better and faster job of sweeping the
streets, than the experienced contractor they have had
for the past decade.
So far they have about half of the town completed.
However some of the streets they have had to go over
twice and still have left gravel behind. They go into a
neighborhood and do two or three streets, then go to

Sweet
comedy

another neighborhood and do the same without ever


completing an entire neighborhood at a time. This
seems to be a very inefficient use of time and money
whereas the previous contractor (with two sweepers)
would have had the town almost completely done at
this point in the spring.
The town currently has two employees in the
sweeper as well as one in the water truck. This does
not sound like saving taxpayers dollars to me. My concern as a taxpayer is if this trend continues the town
will need three machines, plus added manpower, support vehicles etc all operating under our expense.
Come alive Strathmore, and keep those at Public
Works accountable with our money that they are using.
By the way, is your street done yet?
Downtown
Lastly on my list is our downtown revitalization.
Has anyone noticed that we have 36 two-hour parking signs on 2nd and 3rd avenue as well as the connecting streets. Dont dare park, shop, visit a doctor
or you will surely have a ticket. As taxpayers, we are
now paying for four bylaw officers. While I shop at
Walmart, or any of the box stores located on the highway, there is no need to fear for a ticket. The officers
are otherwise occupied. So why shop downtown?

Storage Wars
Pat Fule
Fule for Thought
My wife Debbie is having an affair. Its an honest
love affair, and Im having trouble competing. I
thought I could win her back, but theres no denying it shes in love. Shes in love with Tupperware! Actually, to be fair to other companies that
make storage bins and containers, she pretty much
loves them all! Yep, every latest storage bin or container, makes its way into our house and never
leaves. We have bins for things of all sizes, seasonal
items, even bins for other bins. Its like those Russian dolls that hold about a million other Russian
dolls, each one smaller than the one before!
I mean I cant really blame her, shes trying to bring
order to my world, which is usually not a very orderly one! Its kind of like the reverse of the Reality show Hoarders. Thats the show where people
cant ever part with any of their belongings, so
eventually the house becomes one huge mess of
things that are filthy and unhealthy. In our case,
we have bins and containers stacked holding things
neatly all over the place. Thats the irony we
have a ton of bins throughout the house and garage, and some bins are needed to store other bins!
There are some great ones, I have to admit. I cant
believe Im going to say this, but we have the coolest salad spinner on the planet. Not only can you
spin the water off the salad, but it has click-on places for the stir spoons and even holders for salt and
pepper shakers (its like a survival kit for vegetarians!).
Speaking of survival and life, I think theres a whole
other market for companies like Tupperware, that
hasnt yet been tapped. I mean, think of it. These
are lightweight containers that seal out air and lock
in freshness. They easily stack and click together
to hold many things. Maybe its time these companies looked at the funeral business! Just think,
you could have the ashes of your Great Uncle Al in
your pantry, neatly sealed and stacked on top of the
one that holds the old family cat, or your cranky
mother-in-law! You can easily label them, and you
could visit them way easier than a trip to an old
mausoleum! Okay, maybe that last idea isnt such a

good one, especially if old Great Uncle Al wound


up in the salad spinner it could be a bit messy!
My son Brennen and daughter Breanne are a bit
worried about Mom, as she does love to store
things, and she cant seem to resist the latest and
greatest container or gadget! Just before Christmas,
the kids even suggested an intervention.
Wed all written out our I love you I support
you statements, and we hoped this might slow
the steady stream of bins and containers! Debbie
mustve figured it out (she is pretty crafty she
takes after her dad, Kenny). You can never fool either of them, theyre really smart at being able to
guess their birthday and Christmas gifts! The reason
I know Deb caught on to the intervention, is that
it actually became one of those home sale gatherings for ladies. Yep, we were ready to save Debbie
from Tupperware and herself, but instead, we had a
Sunday full of displays of scented candles, jewelry,
chocolates, plug in scents, teas, and of course
the dreaded Tupperware! How can you save someone when the intervention becomes a massive sales
event? I think I even bought Tupperware that afternoon the intervention was a fail!
Debbies even taken every spice from their original bottle, put them in new Tupperware containers,
and labeled them! I still dont get it even cereal
is poured into these bins! To me, its so much easier
to leave things in their original containers and then
chuck (I mean recycle!) them later!
Deb doesnt curse often, but the other morning I
did hear bad words when she opened the kitchen
cupboard door and a bunch of Tupperware bins
tumbled out! Ironic, eh the storage items were
themselves not able to be stored properly! I laughed
quietly, hoping she wouldnt hear because I didnt
want to wind up with Uncle Al!
Easter has come and gone, and Breanne has been
taking a Theology course in University. She talked about Lent, and that if she was Catholic, shed
choose to give up slurpees. Her boyfriend Kody
said hed have to give up Ice Caps and of course
mine was pizza. Without missing a beat, Breanne
said Mom would have to give up Tupperware (I
think Deb was glad she wasnt Catholic)!

Pass the Salt


Change.
Part of life is change. There is
no escaping it; change is always
there, a constant shifting of the
sands.
Some changes are rapid. Here in
Alberta the temperature can drop
dramatically in minutes.
Some changes are slow. Spring
just never seems to quite arrive.
Some changes are small, but
constant. Prices rise, cars wear
out, trees grow bigger.
Some changes are life changing.
There are marriages, breakups and make-ups. Children
grow, school grades are passed
through, college beckons, the nest
is empty. Parents age, folks pass
away. Work situations change
there are promotions, demotions,
new opportunities and retirement.
Some changes are welcome. Almost everyone I know appreciates
the change of seasons.
Life is full of change. Truth be told
most of us are uncomfortable with
change. We like things to remain
the same. We like staying in the
same house, in the same neighbourhood. We grow comfortable
with our surroundings. We dont
like changing schools, we dont
like starting from scratch; we
dont like change.

How comforting it is to know and


go through life surrounded and
indwelt by a God who does not
change. In the Psalms we read: In
the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens
are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but your remain;
they will all wear out like a
garment.
Like clothing you will change them
and they will be discarded.
But you remain the same, and
your years will never end. (Ps
102:25-27)
The scriptures reveal God to be
creator, redeemer, unchangeable
and unchallengeably sovereign
in creation, wisdom and grace.
The biblical story tells us that
God is good; God is trustworthy;
God is generous; God is love;
God is faithful; God is holy; God
is self-sacrificing all relational
qualities. This truly is one relationship you can count on in changing
times. Having one constant in a
life of change is gift a blessing
to be enjoyed. May your walk be
blessed as you grow your relationship with God.

Remembering our roots

~ Benard & Dorothy Stinn


John Godsman
Times Contributor
Benards grandfather Frederick Stinn was born in
Olpe, Germany in 1860. He emigrated to Pennsylvania with a brother in 1878, to join two other brothers
already there, working in coal mines. From there he
moved to Earling, Iowa where a sister lived. This
sister, Elizabeth, married Herman Praeker and had a
son, who came to Canada in 1911. The son, Herman,
bought land near Gleichen, and today this land is
still owned and farmed by the Praeker family.
In 1886, Frederick (known as Fred) moved to
Milwaukee and worked on the railroad, as a Gandy
Dancer! He was part of a section crew, checking
and replacing rails, as required. He married Theresa
Hendricks in the spring of 1886, and they rented
land and farmed near Earling, Iowa. In 1892, they
decided to move to Cottonwood, Idaho so with four
children they set out by covered wagon to make
the trek west. There were
many hardships on this trip,
namely the mountains, the
Snake River canyon trail and
bears! After eight months
they returned to Earling,
Iowa where they rented and
farmed more land.
On Dec. 8, 1893 their
house burnt down, and the
only possession saved was
a hand-made rolling pin,
which is still treasured by
members of the Stinn family. The exact year when
Fred and Theresa came to
Rockyford is unknown, but
is estimated to be around
the spring of 1919. They first
farmed five miles west and
1.5 miles north, before buying land on the north side
of the town limits, where
they built a house which still
stands today, and where they
spent the rest of their lives.
In 1944, Pope Pius X11 awarded Fred the Beni
Meranti Medal for his extra-ordinary generosity to
Church and Country. It is on display at the Diocesan
Pastoral Centre in Calgary.
Benards father Peter, was born in Earling, Iowa in
1892. Being born and raised on a farm, he started
farming with his brother on land in Defiance, Iowa.
In 1915, Peter married Johanna Schleier, and continued to farm there until 1923, when they moved into
town where Peter became a carpenter. On April 13,
1931 they started the long journey by train to Rockyford with their three children, to farmland Peter
had purchased, many years before. Benard was born
on this farm on June 27, 1932 the youngest of four
children. He has a sister and two brothers, and was
educated at Layden School through Grade 8, then at
St Ritas School in Rockyford, until he graduated in
1951 and went farming with his Dad. During these
years, Benard played baseball with the Rockyford
team.

Dorothys family originated in Odessa, Russia and


moved to North Dakota in 1892, where her father
Anselm (Slim) Schmaltz was born in 1906. To take
advantage of the free land being offered by both
the Canadian Government and CPR, they moved to
Beiseker in 1908. Farmland in this area was available for both cattle and crops. Dorothy was born on
this farm on Feb. 17, 1935, the fifth child of a family,
which consisted of seven girls and three boys. She
took all her schooling in Beiseker from Grade 1 to
Grade 11, then worked for a year at the Royal Bank,
before getting married. As a pastime, she played
softball with the local team, and was a member of
the Girl Guides.
When I asked how they met, Benard replied his
two brothers were married to Dorothys two sisters!
The wedding of Benard and Dorothy took place on
Wednesday, Nov. 11, 1953, because most stores and
businesses were closed on Wednesday afternoons.
This meant everyone could attend the wedding! In
the early 1950s few marriages took place on a Saturday!
Benard and Dorothy have a
daughter, three sons, 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. After leaving school,
Benard worked with his Dad
on the farm, before buying it
from him in 1968. He and Dorothy, lived and worked on this
mixed farm until 1990, when
their youngest son, Ivan, was
married and moved into the
house, but continued to farm
with his Dad, while his parents
to moved to Rockyford.
They lived here for the next
14 years, before moving to
Strathmore in 2004. As with
most seniors, they wanted to
be closer to good medical facilities.
During these farming years,
Dorothy joined the Catholic
Womens League, the same
year she was married, 60 years ago. They traveled to
Mesa, Arizona for 14 winters, initially with a trailer
before buying a Park Model. It was while wintering
in the south, that Benard took an interest in woodworking, an activity he still enjoys today. Dorothy
took up quilting and still enjoys this activity. Their
evenings were spent enjoying regular dancing like
waltz, polka, foxtrot and quickstep.
As previously mentioned they have both lived a
varied life when it comes to community activities.
Benard has served as Secretary/Treasurer of the
Rockyford Rural Fire Department, and the Rockyford Curling Club, was a member of the Rockyford
Lions, the Rockyford Northeast Telephone Company, was Chairman of the Parish Council, and a Grand
Knight of Knights of Columbus, as well as serving as
District Deputy.
They both enjoyed curling, and are members of
The Happy Gang, here in Strathmore. Last Nov. 11,
they celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary,
and look forward to the coming years.

Nurses Week

Manny Everett
Times Contributor

From May 12 to May 18, 2014, the United Nurses of Alberta
(UNA) along with its over 30,000 members strong will wear
white to remind all Albertans of the work that nurses do as
advocates for their patients in need. The efforts surrounding
National Nurses Week show support and celebrates the vital
and efficient work that nurses do, in Alberta and throughout
the world. Florence Nightingale, whose birthday fell on May
12 - the first day of National Nursing Week 2014 - which this
year is the first day of National Nursing Week 2014, reminded us in her writing that nursing is about patient advocacy.
(UNA information).
While for the most part scrubs of every colour and description, including cartoons and symbols, are seen these days in
the hospital and in the doctors offices, nurses nationally will
choose to wear white this week to not only show who they
are to the public but also as a reminder to everyone as to what
they do.
The nurses of Strathmore and the hospital celebrated the
day by wearing white and a light lunch and cake were served
at the hospital on Monday, May 12.
Like the physicians Hippocratic oath, the nurses also follow
an oath from Florence Nightingale: I solemnly pledge myself
before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my
life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will
abstain from whatever deleterious and mischievous, and will
do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my
profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters
committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my
knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I
endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself
to the welfare of those committed to my care.
This week and in the weeks to follow, if you happen to
come across a nurse for whatever reason, remember that they
are there for you, to help and aid you, to give you comfort
in times of need whether great or small. They are the ones
with exceptional bedside manner and often carry the weight
of their patients on their shoulders. Considered by many as
unsung heroes, make sure you stop and say thank you. They
deserve it more than you can imagine.

Jennifer Ash, a trained herbalist practitioner advised a class on May 6 at


Strathmore High School on the uses of traditional Chinese medicine, medicinal herbs, and essential oils. Ash comes to Strathmore to speak roughly
six times a year.

Medicinal herbs

Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

Trained herbalist practitioner Jennifer Ash brought traditional Chinese medicine, medicinal herbs, and essential oils
to Strathmore on May 6, educating a class about the different
remedies available, and how to use them for everyday problems from gastro-intestinal issues to headaches.
We were just going over all of the different ways we can
use these herbs, whether its a tea or a capsule or sprinkled on
your food theyre all very affective, Ash said.
Some specific remedies included the hawthorne berry,
which helps the nervous system and cardiovascular health,
and pink grapefruit oil to aid with depression.
Ash also added that these medicines are not only for human
use, but for pets too.
Different essential oils may be used to support urinary
tracts, specifically in male cats. They often get crystals in their
bladder, making it difficult for them to urinate, Ash said.
Ash speaks to classes through Alberta Health Services, and
comes to Strathmore to educate roughly six times a year. Her
favourite remedy? The reishi mushroom.
It improves cardiovascular health, it lowers cholesterol, and
it works all over for body support. Its a great stress reliever
and used in cancer treatment, she said. Its an all-around
good longevity herb, and its widely available.

Art auction success


The first annual Hope Bridges Society Fundraising Art Auction held on May 10 was a huge
success as talented local artists and generous,
caring guests came together to raise more than
$6,500 towards the Societys $10,000 goal.
Guests were treated to wine, cheese and tasty
desserts served and prepared by the Strathmore Golf Course Stix restaurant staff. Over
40 unique pieces of donated art were sold in a
silent and live auction with the talented Grant
Klaiber running the live auction portion. Live
music for the event was donated by violinist
Megan Konschuh. The event focused on the
foundational work of Hope Bridges in using
arts to support meaningful connection and
friendship in community.

Shannon LeClair
Times Reporter

The spring challenge by the HEAL
Our Future coalition (Healthy Eating,
Active Living) kicked off on May 6. In
the past the challenges have included
things like walking around Jamaica, or
across Canada, but this year the challenge is about seeing how far you can
go.
This year we have left it to just
the most steps that you can walk between now and June 21. We just want
to get people out there. Kinsmen Park
is paved now so its so much better to
walk around, said coalition member
Lisa Sader.
Rather than having a goal or distance
its working towards those 10,000 steps
a day, which is what people should be
trying to get towards.
Having a way to keep track of your
steps is a great way to help keep yourself accountable, and to really see how
you are doing on an average day. Sader

Outdoor walking is taking


place at Kinsmen Park every
Tuesday morning at 10 a.m.
Anyone interested in joining
the group can
meet at the
events sign in
the parking lot.

Every living thing needs food, water


and sunshine to sustain life.
Too much or too little, of any of these
things, is not good for you.
Tanning indoors in a controlled
environment allows you to get just
the right amount for your skin type.

said sometimes at the end of the day, if


she has only taken 5,000 steps she will
go for a walk and get her steps up to
that 10,000 mark.
This year HEAL has also switched
providers for the tracking site, opting
to go through www.UWALK.ca. Every
Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. anyone
interested is encouraged to meet at
the event boards in Kinsmen Park and
head for a trek around the lake.
Last year there were 90 people registered in the challenge, and Sader said
HEAL is hoping to see more people
join this year.
In the fall, if enough people register

on UWALK, HEAL is looking at a challenge that will be for Strathmore, Chestermere and Langdon. Teams could be
set up and they could compete against
each other.
For now, though, the goal is get people out there, active and healthy.
There will be randomly drawn weekly prizes as well. To find out more or
to register go to http://www.healourfuture.com/walking-challenge.html.

Lets Make A Pitch


to beautify Strathmore
Shannon LeClair
Times Reporter

While at the Economic Developers
Conference in April, Chief Administrative Officer for the town Dwight Stanford won $500 to use in the community.
Taking from the conference and the
competition that helped his table win
money, Stanford presented the idea of
hosting Lets Make a Pitch event for
June 19.
The event will see non-profit community organizations present ideas to
three judges about ways they could enhance and beautify the Town of Strathmore. The judges will then select a winning proposal and group, who will be
awarded funds to carry out their project.
We want them to come forward with
ideas on how we can beautify Strathmore. Environmentally to make the
community more beautiful and make
the town prosper, said Stanford.
The three judges are Brett W. Wilson,
Ron Renaud and Beerd Beekman.
I would like to see 100 people show
up to watch and listen and hear the

The classes are facilitated by a Registered Dietitian & Primary Care RN

presentations, said Stanford.


There will be a limit of 14 groups allowed to pitch their ideas, so anyone
interested is encouraged to hurry and
fill out an application for pre-screening
to determine that the project would be
doable.
Businesses and community members
are also being given an opportunity to
help out. Any business or individual
who donates $100 or more for town
beautification will have their name on
the program and will be given a tax receipt.
Lets Make A Pitch will take place
June 19 at the Civic Centre. Groups presenting will have seats at the front near
the stage and one representative from
each group will be asked to speak for
a total of two minutes. Judges will then
have two minutes to ask the presenters
questions.
The evening will begin at 7 p.m.
Council also requested a spring open
house, so the two will be combined to
help create a larger event. Donations
for the Wheatland Food Bank will be
accepted at the door, and the event is
free to attend.

Jungle animals sing out


Sacred Heart Academy along with their music instructor
Miss Hanrath put on another wonderful spring concert.
The concert began with the cutest jungle animals around
from kindergarten singing Whos the King of the Jungle.
Some of the highlights for the evening were a performance
by the Grade 6 students who acted out the Hallelujah chorus with placards, the Grade 3 students who sang The
Dashing Troika and then did the folk dance to it. Grade 4
students played Morning Mood on the recorders.

Times Reporter

Local photographer, and
former freelance photographer for the Strathmore
Times, Joe Desjardins recently
found out that Canon Canada
Inc. wants to display some of
his work.
It began with a phone call
from a friend of his who
works at Image Square in
Calgary, which is owned by
Canon Canada Inc. The friend
told Desjardins that management had been looking at his
website and was impressed
with his photography, and
they wanted to know if he
would be interested in doing
a show.
Desjardins was dumbfounded at first, but excited
to be asked.
Hes a photographic artist
that we know of, he actually
visits our centre regularly but

more importantly we wanted


to feature and exhibit that had
the images of the Canadian
Rockies, and wildlife and he
has some really stunning images of that, said Vern Wutzke, manager at Image Square.
The exhibit will be taking
place May 14 to June 10. On
the 14, Desjardins gave a talk
at the gallery about moose
and bears, shooting wildlife,
his images and some of his
experiences.
Desjardins got started in
the world of photography
when he was quite young.
My first professional job
was at 16, I was shooting a
wedding, I was working at a
studio in Sault Ste. Marie and
from then on I just took it
from there, said Desjardins,
laughing at the memory.
I always loved photography, I bought my own camera and started playing with
it. I guess I amassed a good

Highway 817
Strathmore, AB
(403) 934-2749
www.fieldstone
fruitwines.com

enough portfolio at 16 to have the studio


hire me.
He had seen the ad in the paper and
presented his portfolio. He remembers
showing up the first weekend and they
handed him a camera bag, a flash and
some film and told him he was going
to shoot a wedding, much to his amazement.
His love of wildlife also began at a
young age. When he was about eightyears-old his uncle first began taking
him and his brother camping. It wasnt
the run-of-the-mill weekend camping,
either; they would go out into the back
country for a few weeks at a time, learning to fish out of the creek and basic
wilderness survival.
When I first seen a Lynx out there
and the cougar for the first time, your
jaw just hits the ground. Always had a
camera with me, it wasnt very good, but
there was always something. Thats what
did it for sure, said Desjardins.
The exhibit will be on display at Image Square, 545 8th Ave SW Calgary. It
is a free display and parking is only $2
on Saturdays. Desjardins will be offering workshops coming this summer and
fall. Watch his website for full details, or
to see, or purchase, some of his work

The Strathmore Thunder U18A girls won first on the playoff B-side of the annual Mothers Day Opener Fastpitch Tournament at

B-finish for Mothers Day


Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

Following three losses in the round robin to the


Calgary Red Sox, the Calgary Kalzen, and the Regina Riot, the Strathmore U18A Thunder went on to
win the B final at the fourth annual Mothers Day
Opener Fastpitch Tournament from May 9-11 at the
Ag Grounds. The Thunder defeated the Riot to
whom they had originally lost in the final, 9-2, after defeating the Calgary Xtreme 10-3 in the semis.
Those girls, they just really stepped up, Thunder
coach Lanky Johnson said. He gavee special mention to lead-off hitter Jessica Murphy and pitcher
Kirstyn Johnson, along with teammates Shae Lane,
Alyssa Lavallee, and Shania Carargata. Lavallee had
two triples in the final; Jessica Murphy went 7-8 at
the plate. Caragata provided six RBIs when needed.
Our biggest thing going into the weekend was
that we suffered two major blows. Weve lost two
experienced players, Johnson said of Morgan Ackerman and Makayla Rombough. Ackerman broke
her hand and will be out for six weeks, while Rom-

bough is done for the season.


With all the training weve been doing, losing
two veterans, we had to switch everything around,
Johnson said. From Saturday into Sunday, we had
a new pattern, we had to do a new lineup. We also
had to go over positional changes. It all kind of
came together finally.
The Calgary Red Sox Senior B womens team
went on to defeat the Calgary Kalzen in the A final
by a score of 4-3. Eight teams advanced to either
the A or B-side, while the remaining 12 finished up
the second round.
One of those second round teams was the Strathmore Thunder U16 girls. The U16s finished first
in their pool, but lost their first two playoff games
on the B-side, finally eliminated by the Cranbrook
Heat U18B team.
The U18A Thunder played a double header in
Calgary on May 13 following the Mothers Day
Opener, and will travel to Sherwood Parks River
City Tournament from May 16-18. The U14 and U12
Strathmore girls will host a tournament of their
own at the Ag Grounds May 16 - 17.

The Holy Cross Collegiate track and field team is


surging with Grade 7s, but
roughly 40 junior high and
senior high students will be
competing at county finals
on May 21.
Track and field is a
tough one. With individual
sports, the kids dont have
anybody to hide behind or
help them out, coach John
Reinhart said. Hopefully
we get them to find where
theyre good at. Thats the
biggest thing if they want
to do a certain event, maybe
they can try another with a
better opportunity to be
successful. Thats the good
thing about track, there are
so many to choose from.
Reinhart has students in
throwing, jumps, hurdles,
long distance, and sprints.
Students can compete in up
to four events, along with
relay. Though the junior
high can only go as high as
zones, high school students
can compete at provincials.

The Strathmore Triathlon is designed


to celebrate and encourage

from 7 am - 3 pm for Triathlon

Our best chance for


provincials might be Chris
OLeary, just because hes a
Grade 11, but a young one,
so he competes as a junior.
Sometimes thats an advantage, and sometimes a disadvantage, Reinhart said.
OLeary finished fourth in
the province for discus last
year. For some of the rookies, OLeary will lead by example for the different rules
they need to learn.
For the most part were
looking at encouragement
to improve. A lot of these
kids, they havent done
these types of events before. For them, itll be their
first major competition, Reinhart said. If youre not
fast, maybe you can run
long distances. Or, if youre
a bigger person, maybe you
can throw. Hopefully we
can have some success.
Holy Cross is into its third
week of practice, though
the first few were too cold,
Reinhart said. The team
plans on practicing twice a
week before counties, and
zones on May 28.

Schiffner gaining confidence


Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

After a fourth place finish at the Chad Besplug Invitational
Rodeo in Claresholm on March 8, Strathmores Scott Schiffner had trouble finding a strong finish at rodeos in Medicine
Hat and Camrose for the month of April. A first-place finish at
the Clunie-Cooper Memorial PBR event in Prince Albert, Sask.
from May 2-3 however, has restored his confidence.
Since Claresholm, I was kind of on a downhill spiral. I
hadnt won much, and I was bucked off quite a bit. Thats part
of rodeo its a mental game. You have to figure out how to
get over that, Schiffner said. I was kind of in a slow run, then
last weekend went well.
Schiffner also competed at the Stavely Rodeo from May 8-10.
I had a really good early spring, he said. Ive been going
to quite a few PBR events.
From May 17-19, Schiffner will be in British Columbia competing at the Luxton Pro Rodeo and the Falkland Stampede;
his big task is Grand Prairies Stampede from May 28-June 1.

Grand Prairies got quite a bit more money for us to ride at.
When theres more money added, theres more competitors
and better competitors. Theres better stock too, Schiffner said.
Schiffner has already pre-qualified for the Calgary Stampede,
taking place from July 4-13, though he feels his season has
been fairly average.
As I get older, I do a little bit less but I expect more out of
myself too. To be honest, the last few weeks Ive been pretty
disappointed in how Ive performed so this weekend was good
to change that, he said.
Schiffner admits that now, he focuses more time with his
family.
Funny how as your get older, kids trump other things, thats
for sure, he said.
The main goal is to make PBR Canada Finals in Saskatchewan come November, and Canadian Finals in Edmonton come
November; it seems far away, but its coming quick for Schiffner.
Its amazing how fast the season goes. If youre not winning,
it goes real fast, he joked.

55 Plus Games granted funds


Shannon LeClair
Times Reporter

Donalda Ledene, chair of Strathmores Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games
committee, approached town council
with a few requests, and an update, at
the May 7 council meeting. The games
will be held in July of 2015, and from
now until then there is a lot of work to
be done to ensure the four-day event
will be a success.
The overall budget is approximately
$1 million, which means the committee
will be busy fundraising and applying
for grants over the next year.
Alberta Sport are supporting us with
a grant of $160,000, and an additional
$25,000 for the cultural aspect, and if
we provide a positive financial statement at the end there will be an additional $25,000 (to go in a legacy account), said Ledene.
It is the committees goal not to have
a deficit either way, and they want very
much to be able to find sponsorships
and financial support to the event. Anything left over will be a legacy to the
community and the committee hopes
they can provide the town with not just
an event, but also with funds.
Overall the committee was requesting
support from council for approximately
$205,000.
The list of requests was: to not have
to repay the initial loan of $10,000;
$12,500 needed for shuffleboard equipment; facility donation of the Family
Centre, Aquatic Centre and Civic Centre

at $40,000; facility donation for three


fundraisers at $5,000; use of the towns
Heritage Days booth for $1,000; games
staff wages, for a games manager over
a period of 18 months and office admin for a period of 12 months totaling
$120,000; bocce court development at
the Lambert Centre for $10,000 and
Tracy Simpsons time commitment for
approximately $7,000.
One of our major expenses is hiring staff and so we would ask that you
provide the salaries for two staff which
would be approximately $120,000 for
an 18 month contract and a 12 month
contract, said Ledene.
If council were to fund the staff, then
the town would likely have to draw the
funds from the financial stabilization
reserve. Councillor Bob Sobol said he
is very supportive of the games. He is
director of sustainability and has enjoyed being on the committee, and he
believes in the fundraising capabilities
of those on the committee, but as a
councillor he had concerns about the
possibility of an excess of funds being
raised.
If they overraise funds then that
money does not come back to the
town, it can go back to the town, but
it cant go back into the coffers, so I
am just a little cautious that if theres a
very successful fundraising activity that
takes place that they may not need this
$120,000, said Sobol.
His proposal was that the amount for
staff funding not be approved at this
time until the committee can begin funPLEASE ADOPT FROM A RESCUE,

draising and they can get an idea about


how that is going.
Ledene said the committee doesnt
have money in the bank for a payroll
each month at this time, but that they
do have to hire staff that can focus on
the event 24/7. Everyone else is a volunteer and only has so much time they
can commit each week. Ledene said
the committee doesnt know right now
where their fundraising will go; they
have great aspirations but its tough to
forecast before they get started.
It was suggested that, for now, salaries could be paid out of some of the
funds granted through Alberta Sport,
while the committee gets the first of its
fundraising underway.
Sobol reiterated that he is fully supportive, but his concern is that once the
money leaves the financial stabilization
reserve it cant go back to there. He did
also mention he would be happy to see
Ledene back in council in a few months
time to review the wage request.
Sobol made a motion for the town to
support the other listed items, totaling
$85,000 at this time. The motion was
carried.

Bleackley bronzed

Check Us Out
on Facebook!

Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

Former UFA Bison Conner Bleackley
had a golden finish in mind for Team
Canada at the World U18 Championships in Finland from April 17-27. After
a disappointing overtime loss against
the Czech Republic in the semi-finals,
Team Canada finished third in the tournament.
When you play for Team Canada, the
goal is always gold. Some Canadians
may look at bronze as not quite the accomplishment, but the other teams are
real strong, and its hard to win gold,
Bleackley said. The experience for myself was still great.
The High River product has also
played in the Alberta Cup, for Team
Alberta, and for Team Canada in the
World U17 Hockey Challenge; he had
other international experience during
the Macs Tournament in 2011-2012
with the Bisons.
We had a real good run in the Macs;
we just fell short in the final to Russia. It was definitely a stepping stone
for me, he said. My experience in
Strathmore was great. I have nothing
but good things to say about the town
of Strathmore and what the UFA Bisons
did for me.
Bleackley spent one season with the
Bisons, earning 30 points in 26 games.
That same season, he had two goals in
16 contests with the Red Deer Rebels
of the WHL. Following that, Bleackley
scored 18 points in 66 games. Continuing to improve this past season, Bleackley was at a point-per-game average
with 68 points in 71 games.
The biggest thing was getting my
first year under my belt and learning
what the league was about, Bleackley said. Really, just learning how to
prepare myself how to play that many
games.
The 18-year-old was named captain
of the Rebels this season, he believes,

because of his ability as a two-way player.


That comes with being a captain,
leading by example on the ice, he said.
The captain has to play in both ends,
if hes going to hold his teammates accountable to that same level.
Much of his growth is credited to Red
Deers head coach and general manager, Brent Sutter.
Brents been through everything as
a player, and now as a coach too. I can
go to him anytime for advice and ask
him questions. Its great to have a coach
whos been through it all, Bleackley
said. Coming into this season, Brent
gave me a lot of opportunity. I was
really confident with the summer of
training that I put in I expected those
numbers out of myself. It was a pretty
good year for me.
With the upcoming 2014 NHL Draft in
June, Connor could be joining Brents
brother Darryl, head coach of the LA
Kings.
Thatd be a cool destination, Bleackley laughs. Hes expected to go anywhere in the 20 to 30 range, making
him a first round draftee.
That range that Im sort of in are
teams that are still in the playoffs. Obviously, I want to be drafted into the first
round, he said.
Another destination on Bleackleys
map would be the Colorado Avalanche
his favourite team growing up. Before
heading anywhere in the league however, Bleackley wants to work on his
skating.
Improving my first few strides is
going to be huge for me to make that
next jump to the NHL. It just comes
from leg strength and core strength,
and thatll be gained through my training this summer, he said. When Im on
my game, Im always moving my feet.
Thats something thats been preached
to me all the way through my minor
hockey career and up.
Bleackley was only one of three

Connor Bleackley played for the UFA Bisons from


2011-2012, scoring 30 points in 26 games. Since
then, Bleackley (l) has moved on to the Red Deer
Rebels alongside teammate Haydn Fleury (r) of
the WHL, and more recently, Team Canada for
the World U18 Championships. Bleackley and
Fleury are expected to be drafted within the first

All the other teams (in the AMHL)

there were guys coming from all over

Spartans rugby splits


Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

Though the Strathmore High
School Spartans boys team narrowly lost to Chestermere High
School on the rugby pitch by a
score of 12-0, the Spartan girls
came out victorious with a 42-0
win on May 9.
They played really well, girls
coach Jerry Flaws said. We controlled the ball very well.
The girls looked to continue their streak as they travel
to Drumheller May 14, and
Okotoks on May 15 (result
not available as of press time).
Flaws even has some young
players from Crowther Memo-

rial Junior High School joining


the Spartans this week, and
plans to give them playing time.
These players will hopefully be
as effective next year as Flaws
Grade 10s this year.
We have some real impact
Grade 10s. Our strength is a
good combination of veterans
and some Grade 10s that are really contributing, he said.
Flaws said that no matter what
age group junior, intermediate, or senior all of his players
have progressed since the start
of the season.
You can really see the improvement from day one to
where they are already, Flaws
said. Were looking to be one of

the stronger teams in our zone,


which is exciting. Well have a
good chance of winning zones.
But we need to work on the
number of bodies in our breakdowns we have too many people committing to rucks.
As for the boys side, though
they scored first against Chestermere, a failure to convert on
points cost them the win.
The (Chestermere) boys
were definitely stronger. Their
girls program is a little weaker
right now, Flaws said. It was a
very well played game by both
sides very exciting to watch.
Rugby zones for girls and
boys sides will take place May
30-31.

Shake-up leads to first win


Aryssah Stankevitsch
Times Reporter

The Strathmore High School (SHS)
boys had two games back to back on
May 7 and May 8 though both games
were losses (5-1 against Holy Trinity
and 3-1 against Canmore respectively),
coach Kaitrin McDonnell said at home
against Canmore was a large improvement, based on style of play.
They were drastically different
games. We played a way better soccer
game on Thursday, McDonnell said.
The Canmore team is really good, and
they play a really clean, nice, skill-filled
game. It brought our playing style up,
versus our previous game.
With more confidence following that
match, SHS took on Notre Dame on
May 12, with both teams searching for
their first win of the season. At half,
SHS was down 2-0.
On a whim, I switched things up

drastically on the field, McDonnell


said.
McDonnell moved her starting goalie to striker, and threw in her second
string Grade 10 in net.
Within four minutes of doing that,
we had three goals, McDonnell said.
Our first string goalie is amazing; hes
very good with his soccer sense. He understands the game, which a huge benefit to have him in net because he can
see everything and communicate that
to the team.
The SHS Spartans went on to accomplish their first win of the season, 5-2.
We had faith and trust in our secondstring goalie. He is learning. Hes never
really played before, but he just has a
natural ability to defend and to keep
the ball out of the net, McDonnell said.
The boys played again May 14 against
Foothills Composite High School (result
not available as of press time). Three
games remain in their season.

RELENTLESS ON WEEDS. SAFE ON WHEAT.


FLUSHAFTERFLUSH CONTROL.
With EVEREST 2.0, no grower has to sacrifice
yield or crop safety in order to control weeds in
wheat. EVEREST 2.0 Herbicide, the new standard
for grass control in wheat, has advanced safener
technology built in to provide peace of mind while
delivering long-lasting control of green foxtail,
wild oats and key broadleaf weeds.
FLUSH AFTER FLUSH CONTROL
LEADS TO BETTER YIELDS
In University of Saskatchewan field trials,
researchers found that regardless of conditions,
EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush control
of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of
injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow
without adverse effects, thanks to the super
selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of
spring and durum wheat.
We like that EVEREST 2.0 gives customers a
wide application window that lets you spray at
your earliest convenience, regardless of weather
conditions, says Ethan Gosling of CHS Dynagra.
Spraying early provides the best weed control,
and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has the best
chance to become established and reach its top

potential yield. And at the same time, if the rains


come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 is still
safe to apply.
BEST-IN-CLASS CONTROL OF GROUP 1
RESISTANT GRASSY WEEDS
More and more, spring wheat growers in Western
Canada are plagued with Group 1 resistant
grassy weeds. As a Group 2 herbicide, EVEREST
2.0 is the best option for growers struggling
with Group 1 resistance. It is the only group 2
herbicide that provides Flush after flush control
14052TA4
with unsurpassed crop safety.

EVEREST 2.0. A herbicide you can count on.

SUPERIOR FORMULATION AND CONVENIENCE


EVEREST 2.0 is an advanced, highly concentrated
liquid formulation, says Trent McCrea, Arysta
LifeScience Marketing Manager, Herbicides.
Its a user-friendly, no-hassle product that
wheat growers can rely on, with exceptional
convenience and flexibility. One 2-litre bottle
will treat 80 - 100 acres for wild oats and green
foxtail. In addition, the high-quality liquid
formula with safener technology makes it
compatible with multiple tank-mix partners.

Top-eights
for the Sharks

Times Reporter

The Strathmore Swim Sharks traveled
to Lethbridge from May 3-4 with a spectacular finish at the Senior Meet the
club earned 52 top-eight finishes, gaining confidence for upcoming Alberta
Summer Games Trials.
Rayanne Laycock, Megan Mertz, Marina Laycraft, Tamara Adamschek, Olivia
Smail, Kate Doucette, Liam Schoepp and
Boris Kuljanin also all finished within
the top three in at least one of their
events. Twenty-six swimmers attended
from the Swim Sharks, participating in
up to seven events from 50 m up to
800 m.
This was certainly a really successful meet for us, Coach Jen Mertz said.
We use this as a big team building
meet as well, because it is such a hard
meet. There are so many races in a small
amount of time. Our goal is to have fun
and enjoy your teammates, and be proud
of just working really hard.
The same weekend, the juniors finished up their season at the Killarney
Meet in Calgary. Similarly, the Swim
Sharks had 17 top-eight finishers.
Faith Fletcher finished with gold in
two of her events, while Cayley Boschee
finished top three in all of her events,
and Kamaya Lovig earned a meet qualifying time for the 100 m.
This was the juniors final event of the
year and their first two-day meet.
It challenges them to do a bit of a longer event, Mertz said. Not all of them
will move on to senior meets, but it is
getting them prepared for what a senior
meet might look like.
One of the successes of the juniors
Killarney meet was the high attention
paid to the guidelines of swimming.
At every event, there are a lot of rules
involved in racing, Mertz said. We look
at all the disqualifications, and if weve
done our job, for a few swimmers, not
having a disqualification at all is huge.
The seniors begin Alberta Summer
Games Trials in Canmore at the beginning of June, and, should they qualify
(for a maximum of four events), will
compete in the July event in Airdrie.
The Swim Sharks will celebrate their
season with an awards night on May 28.

Wilbert Bechtold, born in Medicine Hat, Alberta,


passed away peacefully at the Strathmore
Hospital at the age of 71 years after a courageous
battle with cancer. Will is survived by his loving
wife of 50 years, Anita; his son Blair Bechtold
of Vancouver, British Columbia; his daughter
Chelsea (Dan) Yule of Strathmore, Alberta; and his
much loved granddaughter Bailey of Strathmore,
Alberta. Will is also survived by two brothers
Chris (Shirly) Bechtold of Strathmore, Alberta,
and Clarence (Terry) Bechtold of Medicine Hat,
Alberta. Will and Anita moved to Calgary from
Medicine Hat in 1965. They built their home on
Chestermere Lake, where they remained for
30 years. They moved to Strathmore in 2007.
Will worked with many gas plants in Alberta as
a pressure welder. He will be missed by all who
knew him. A Celebration of Wills Life will be held
on Friday, May 16, 2014 at the Strathmore Royal
Canadian Legion (230, 2nd Ave., Strathmore) at
1:00 p.m. If friends so desire, memorial donations
can be made directly to the Alberta Cancer
Foundation, Attn: Tom Baker Cancer Centre (1331
29th Street N.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2N 4N2). To
send condolences, please visit Wills obituary at
www.wheatlandfuneralhome.ca.
