At a time when downtown business is desperate in


Strathmore, frustrations and emotions among business
owners were escalating, when the town flip-flopped on
the issue of fireboxes - shortly after numerous local businesses already footed the bill to install the equipment
they say they were pressured to install.
The Strathmore Fire Department conducted a fire safety inspection report in early May, which stated a fire department lock box shall be installed and that failure to
comply with the instructions of the report will result in a
re-inspection, costing the owner another $175 plus taxes.
However, when some concerned business owners approached the town about the issue, they were informed
the action wasnt mandatory.
Ive been totally and completely scammed, the money
is out of my pocket, said Brian Code, owner of Strathmores Florist.
Whos protecting the small businesses in this town?
If youre like me you just do what youre told, and you
dont really pay attention. We assume that the fire department is operating from an honourable position. There is
nothing honourable about this at all.
Code argued that he received the notice during his
busy season and followed the fire departments order,
before realizing two months later, upon reading the fine
print, that his business wasnt obligated to install the
$300-$400 box.
Attached to the inspection, Strathmore business owners received a list of 10 scenarios that would require
for a key box to be installed. Such criteria included a
locked fire alarm system, automatic sprinkler system,
and locked access doors to a roof provided for firefighting purposes.
I did all of [the instructions] because I didnt know
I had any choice, Code said. When I was in my office
two months later I read it in detail and thought why did
they do this to me? They list all the conditions who has
to have it, I do not fit one of those criteria.
According to a letter from the Town of Strathmore Fire
Chief Muir Furzer, the emergency access-lockbox system
allows police and emergency services to enter a facility quickly and safely during an emergency. The letter
states that the property owner is required to purchase
a lock box device. Furthermore, Furzer wrote: pursuant
to Alberta Fire Code (AFC) I am advising you that effective immediately, all occupancies shall install lock box
devices in compliance with code requirements outlined
in section AFC 2.5.1.3.2. The letter continues saying that
failure to comply may result in the building owner, occupier, or manager being charged under the Alberta Safety
Code Act.

Organization AIMS for greater turnout


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Government cutbacks and the absence of a provincial budget left the
Foothills Advocacy In Motion Society
(AIMS) branch in Strathmore with a
funding shortage and a client freeze
this year.
Despite ample support from local
businesses to contribute in a financial
turnaround by contributing prize donations for the sixth annual AIMS fundraising event in a few days time, participation in the event thus far continues
to remain low.
They havent announced a budget
yet so were kind of sitting on the fence
until we find out what the new budgets are, said Bev Roppel, the program
manager for Strathmore AIMS. Right
now theres a freeze of new individuals coming in, because of the funding
shortfall, so were hoping to see some
new faces coming in.
The provincial government contributed over $3 million to the three different
AIMS branches High River, Okotoks,
and Strathmore that currently deal
with 90 clients. In Strathmore, those
numbers translate to 18 individuals
for a staff of 12. Unless the situation
is critical or a client comes equipped
with their own funding, the Strathmore
branch lacks capacity to accommodate
new clients.
Therefore, the society is hopeful that
numbers to participate in the Chinook
Financial Tight & Bright Family Run,
the annual AIMS fundraiser, will spike
over the next few days, beat last years
turnout, and raise necessary funds required to continue their programs.
We support individuals that have a
disability so mostly a mental disability
and actually its opening up to other
disabilities also, Roppel said. We help
them become part of the community

and support them where they need


support. If its in a job, or out in the
community getting to know the community and being a part of the community, helping them have a life that
theyre interested in having, as well as
making sure the community accepts
them for who they are and the abilities
that they have.
While numbers of participants for the
2015 2 km, 5 km, or 10 km run or walk
are low - only a handful compared to
last years 75 - the opposite holds true
for support from Strathmores business
community.
Forty-five prizes were made available
for the upcoming event, more than
ever before, including assistance from
the Strathmore and District Agricultural
Society, the Strathmore branch No. 10
of the Royal Canadian Legion, and Chinook Financial a longtime supporter
who donated a whopping $3,000 at last
years event.
Each Credit Union and speaking
for Chinook, were entrenched in the
community, and were member owned,
which kind of dictates that we look
after our members as well so that the
money that we have always goes back
into our communities, said Kimberley
Sharkey-Thompson, regional branch
manager for Chinook Financial. So we
do have a little bit of autonomy to decide where that money is going back
into and what were going to support.
Particularly when theyre so invested in
their organization, the committee is so
invested, theyre a working board and
they volunteer themselves. And again
that speaks to what we do as well.
Were out there and we give back in the
same way. So looking for like-minded
organizations it makes good partnerships.
Since early 2009, AIMS operated
within Strathmore and continues to
work together with individuals with

disabilities to live, work, and be active


within the community. AIMS clients also
contribute Strathmore tremendously
through volunteer work. Recipients of
their input include schools, the Strathmore Municipal Library, churches, Parent Link, and the Wheatland Lodge.
With a goal of 100 residents gathering at Kinsmen Park on Aug. 22 at 9
a.m., the organization continues to encourage community members to get
involved and surpass last years $5,000
funds raised. To take part in the Chinook Financial Tight & Bright Family
Run, contact the AIMS society at 403934-4888, sign up through the running
room website, or acquire a late registration on the morning of the race. Entry
is $35, and $30 for the 2 km Kids Run.

Q: How does Caveat Emptor apply?


A: Caveat Emptor. Buyer Beware. When

someone buys a car, they can research the


vehicle, read reviews, as well as test-drive
that car before they purchase. Death does not
allow for that test it out first type of shopping.
In fact, it is written in legislation that the
funeral industry is not permitted to work by
the philosophy of Caveat Emptor. With one
internet search, you can find articles speaking
of the unscrupulous nature of funeral directors.
The reality of the situation is that, like any
industry, there are always some immoral
individuals. However, the vast majority of
funeral homes will do whatever is possible to
meet the needs of grieving families. Funeral
directors are required to explain everything
to a family, knowing that families are often
unfamiliar with the industry. As such, Caveat
Emptor does not and cannot apply in the
funeral industry.

Brian Code, owner of Strathmores Florist, was outraged
when he found out he had a
choice in the installation of a
fire department lock box, that
many businesses thought was
mandatory after an inspection
said the installation was required. Numerous businesses
around Strathmore paid over
$400 to adhere to the instructions.

Firebox a hot topic for downtown businesses


Continued from Page 1

There was a businessman that came
to me about a month ago and he was
very concerned, and he said Im not
putting it on my building, forget it,
said Dwight Stanford, chief administrative officer with the town. I talked
to the fire chief that time and he said
we encourage it but its not mandatory.
So anyway I never heard another word
until last week, and then somebody
got a hold of me with the same type of
thing. So theres been a few businesses
mad and upset about it.
But Councillor and local business
owner Rocky Blokland doesnt agree
that the lockbox would allow for
emergency crews to get into the building more quickly and argued that during an emergency situation it would
cost him less for the fire department
to break his front door and recoup the
cost through insurance. Unlike Code,
and many other business owners
who complied with the report, Blokland refused to install the box and
approached town administration on
whether it was mandatory to install.
However, over the last week, Blokland
has been taken a lot of heat from local
businesses about his actions and lack
of information-sharing with his neighbours. Frustrated about the inspection
and how the town has handled the situation, Blokland planned to bring the
issue to council.
Theres too much misinformation
coming out, whether it should be
done this way or that way or maybe
it doesnt have to be done that way
or this way, and I wish they smarten
up on that end, said Blokland who
added he hadnt seen an inspection in
his 15 years at the location. Im a little
upset here because its not being handled properly by the town. Theres a

difference between encouraging it and


saying youre required. And Im not
happy about how they did an inspection. I dont know much about fire, but
that wasnt much of an inspection, and
then you get a $50 bill for that.
Code has submitted a letter to the
town asking to be reimbursed for
$444.28 it cost for the installation and
purchase of the box, and adding the
town failed to protect its businesses
from unnecessary expenses at an extremely difficult economic time.
At the time when the Strathmore
Times was in production, Rocky Blokland planned to address the issue with
council on Aug. 19 and put forth a
motion to try and reimburse the businesses.
Im going to put myself into a position on Wednesday where Im probably
going to talk against my administration, Blokland said before Wednesday
night. But I feel, of my own mind, that
I have to do the best I can as a councillor to straighten this out. Whether or
not Im going to get any support from
the council or not, I dont know.

Strathmore RCMP is currently


investigating the theft of a bicycle
that occurred sometime between
August 1 and 8. On Westdale Street in
Strathmore, unknown suspect(s) broke
into a shed on a property and stole a
BMX bicycle. The bicycle is black with
red markings on the handlebars and
forks. Grips on the handlebars were
white with gold clamps. The bike is a
DMR brand BMX. Strathmore RCMP
has received numerous stolen bicycle
complaints in the past few weeks. If
you have any information regarding
this investigation, please contact the
Strathmore RCMP

Drug shortages and price changes may necessitate


a change in brand of your medication. Most of the
time this isnt a problem but if its a thyroid or
warfarin brand change, it is good to get a blood
test a short while after the change to ensure the new
brand is doing the job as well as the old.
Since the human papilloma vaccine was
introduced back in 2006, there has been a 56%
decrease of HPV infections in girls aged 14-19.
Side effects of the vaccine are rare (1-10 cases in
a million doses given) and the vaccine does not
encourage early sexual activity. Its recommended
for girls starting at the age of 9 and is a protection
against cervical cancer in the future.
Its quite evident when looking at the statistics
on tobacco and alcohol use why Russia leads the
world in cardiovascular disease. Russians are the
biggest users of tobacco products and their alcohol
consumption is also high which places the country
near the top in the number of cancer deaths per
year as well.
E-cigarettes are still unregulated products. There
are no standards as to how much nicotine or other
ingredients they contain. The United Kingdom is
one of the first countries that will legislate these
products starting in 2016. Proponents of the
product say they are safer than smoking tobacco but
they still contain nicotine an addictive substance,
that increases blood pressure and heart rate.
If you still smoke and want to quit, we can help.

Hope Bridges continues to grow


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Coming back from a one-month break, the Hope
Bridges Society recently completed their line up for
their fall projects and workshops that trumps previous seasons with more programs than ever before
a result of growing demand from the societys
increasingly expanding community.
Hope Bridges recently added 25 new members
to their approximately 400-member-strong community of artists and facilitators that have participated
at any given time. In response to their requests,
the Hope Bridges Society is offering 10 programs,
some new times for old favourites, and guest artist facilitators a move thats been unprecedented
previously.
It continues to grow and we continue to be asked
to develop opportunities, said Hope Bridges Society coordinator Wanda Reinholdt. This is the most
opportunities weve ever had. People are coming.
Theyre finding us here. Were becoming a household name, which is I think is great. Its starting to
really come and this is my fourth year doing regular
programming with Hope Bridges, so its exciting to
see it develop.
Already this year, the society has created 12
painted quilts, fostered stronger relationships within Wheatland County including partnering up
with Rockyford Library and Rosebud and connected more seniors with the younger generations
than before. Reinholdt has also noticed stronger
bonds and relationships formed between members
of the society, who not only support one another
but the community in general, which was evident
during the Lets Make a Pitch event where 12 individuals showed up to support the event and those
involved.
This season, the staff at the Hope Bridges Society is introducing an array of fresh ideas that involve instruction by Calgary-based artist Joan Packham, and award-winning artist Charlene Hart from
Chestermere, who will facilitate Hand Built Pottery.
While Packhams specialty is to collect random
items on her walks and turn them into art pieces,
which she will help those in attendance turn into a
community art piece, Hart is no stranger to going

on the road and facilitating workshops in schools,


with organizations, daycares, and at parties. No experience is necessary for her workshops that run
on Nov. 25 and Dec. 9.
I think there is such a value to bringing this type
of artistic work to individuals, said Hart. Because
were dealing with adults rather than children, Im
going to be having them do more the class that
they can utilize at home rather than ornaments on
the shelf. The adults tend to prefer making vases,
bowls, and boxes.
New this season, is the Zentangle Community
project geared towards advanced Zentangle artists. Photographer Kenzie Kettenbach, who previously taught Photography Tips, will also be coming
back in November to teach portrait photography
in anticipation of Christmas. The Community Drum
Circle, although with a new instructor, will also be
making a comeback.
The society is also bringing back previous programs such as Go Green Upcycling, Sing & Play
Your High Note, and the Community Drumming
Circle.
However, in order to accommodate parents, the
Go Green Upcycling, in partnership with Parent
Link, will be offered every third Wednesday from
4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Parent Link location.
The Go Green Upcycling in the mornings will also
continue every Thursday.
In October, their annual gala will celebrate 10
years of Hope Bridges and provide another avenue
for local and regional artists to come together.
Were hoping to be bringing back different highlights from the last 10 years, from the galas, so itll
be a special celebration, said Reinholdt. Its always
been the same goal to have a number of local and
regional artists bring their art. So whether its visual
artists, or performing artists, they bring their art.
Reinholdt added, those interested in attendance
are asked to dress up in what they consider their
finest clothes, whether that means something simple as pants and a nice top, or a fancy dress. The
event will take place on Oct. 22 at the Hope Church
at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $10. For more information about programs and workshops at the Hope
Bridges Society, visit their website at www.hopebridges.ca. Registrations are now open.

COME TO ME
Jesus said, let the little children
come to me.
Is this simply a nice sentiment, or
a bold statement of value, priority,
and importance? As a parent of
four children under seven, living
in a community where children
and young families represent a
significant part of our population,
this is a vital question. As long
summer days filled with travel,
play, and activity transition towards September and the back
to school routine, here are some
things I have seen:
- I have seen parents and kids
cooperatively gathering together
in a green space for low-key
soccer games where values of
play, physical activity, and team
have been introduced. Where
parents have invested not only in
their own kids, but also in others
children.
- I have seen churches and other
community groups invest and create day camps and bible schools
not as time fillers or cheap
childcare, but as opportunities for
learning, play and growth.
- I have seen cul-de-sacs and
streets filled with bikes and impromptu street hockey games.
- I have seen bite-sized triathletes
and not-yet major league ballers
cheered on to early success.

- I have seen a neighbourhood


street fair that placed high value
on fun, engagement, and activity
for our communitys kids.
These, and many more, are
expressions of investment,
intentionality, and commitment
to our kids. Over the last several
months, I have also seen:
- parents and adults struggle with
the challenges of raising their
kids.
- public expressions of frustration, anger, and exasperation as
kids act out or misbehave.
- expressions of impatience as
adults fight to maintain maturity
and perspective in challenging
situations with kids.
- failures to see, value, accept,
encourage, correct, and invest in
children as the developing human
beings they are.
Jesus said, let the little children
come to me.
While we may be tempted to see
this only as a sentimental expression of cliched value on the next
generation.
Every day we see opportunities in
our community to invest, engage,
inspire, pay attention to the littlest
members of our town. How do
(and will) you respond?

Taxi companies upset over council remarks regarding industry


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

In an attempt to heed residents complaints and address a lack of authority,
town council requested administration to review the
taxi bylaw two weeks ago, a
decision thats leaving Strathmores cab companies angered and frustrated about

the paucity of protection for


their companies.
Council tasked administration to focus their attention
on Bylaw 08-25 during their
regular council meeting on
Aug. 5, after Councillor Bob
Sobol addressed the issue following numerous complaints
regarding the cleanliness of
the vehicles, wheelchair accessibility, and the inability

Thought for
the Week
~
The most
important thing
in life is to
discover what is
the most
important thing
in life.

of bylaw officers to enforce such


regulations.
The comments caused indignation with the owners of Strathmores cab companies that feel
the greater issue remains insufficient protection from the town,
by allowing taxis from areas
such as Calgary, Chestermere,
Airdrie, and Brooks to compete
for business in Strathmore, even
though its illegal for Strathmore
taxis to cater to customers in
their boundaries because of their
bylaws.
The town first and foremost
has to step up to the plate, and
if youre not going to step up to
the plate then get your nose out
of my business and stay out of
it, said Marty Van Peuter, owner
of Strathmore Economy Taxis.
Were totally allowed to
smoke outside the cab, and we
smoke inside the cabs too. Every nitwit in town smokes in the
cab, and drinks alcohol in the
cabs. Theyre not allowed to do
that, but the bylaw doesnt enforce that; the RCMP doesnt enforce it.
Ive had cabdrivers assaulted
over it, and theres nobody to go
to. The RCMP dont want to look
at it. Youre caught in the middle.
If youre a smoking cab driver,
you might as well smoke with
them. Its the easy way out.
The bylaw currently states that
no person, partnership or corporation shall carry on the business of operating a taxi service
in Strathmore, unless the person, partnership, or corporation
holds a current Town of Strathmore business license.
Yet, local taxi drivers said vehicles from cab companies of
surrounding areas can be seen
tending to customers in town
without officers questioning
them about their whereabouts.
While owner of Strathmore Shuttle Brenda Haf is in agreement
that action is required to handle
out-of-town cabs competing for
business within Strathmore, she
said its about time the town
took the initiative and re-examine the bylaw.
Im insulted, my cabs are
clean, theyre well-maintained,

decaled, lights, my drivers have


security criminal record check
done, she said, adding that she
doesnt allow alcohol or smoking in her cabs and has never
had an issue. With that bylaw
I followed everything, because I
dont want to get fined. When my
vehicles need to be maintained
theyre into a licensed mechanic
and get it done right. Each of my
three vehicles have every cleaning product they need. You keep
your van clean. If it needs to be
washed go wash it. I dont have
an issue, I want my vehicles
clean.
She added she wants all taxicabs in town clearly decaled,
yet, the bylaw only states that
the vehicle has to be equipped
with a fully functional, illuminated roof-mounted sign that
identifies the vehicle as a cab.
Furthermore, the regulation includes that every cab is required
to be maintained in a good mechanical condition and that all
parts of the interior and exterior
are repaired or replaced whenever such parts exhibit excessive
wear or damage or whenever
repairs or replacements are requested by the permit inspector.
Thats a fairly repetitious complaint that Ive received, some
having to do with the cleanliness
of the vehicles, the mechanical
ability of vehicles, and some of
the driving habits of the drivers,
and that was one of the main
reasons why it was brought up,
to bring something into our bylaw that would mandate that,
said Councillor Sobol.
I honestly feel that this will be
to the benefit of the companies.
Quite frankly I know people that
wont drive in the taxi because of
the smoke. So if they clean some
of that I suspect it will result in
an increase in business. Its just
an effort to make an even playing field for everyone, we want
some common sense rules in
there so that everything is equal
to everybody and we lift their
level of service to our residents
a little higher.
Despite emphasizing the inability of local taxis to provide
transportations for anyone in a

wheelchair and the seriousness


of such concern, Haf and Van
Peuter disagree. Being required
to dish out at least $30,000 to
update one vehicle to allow for
such access, as well as receiving
special training and certification,
is not on the local taxicab radar,
when non-profit organizations
like the Handi-bus offer cheaper
rates. According to Van Peuter,
ramps were already bought last
year, but with the Handi-bus offering rates at 72 per cent of the
cost, its not financially feasible
to install.
You have to know how to
handle these people, there are
ways and means of handling
people in wheelchairs, and you
cant just yank people out of
a wheelchair, said Councillor
Rocky Blokland, who is also a
member on the Handi-bus board.
I got a copy of the bylaw and
Ive been reading it over the
last week. Its pretty vague and
it should be updated. Its seven
years out of whack. They can
put all they want in a bylaw but
are the bylaw officers out there
at 3 or 4 oclock in the morning
when infractions are going on
against the bylaw?
In regards to protecting the
taxicab companies from out-oftown business, Blokland is of
the same opinion that something
needs to be added into the bylaw to add protection.
The inability to administer the
current bylaw is among the reasons why the issue was brought
before council two weeks ago.
Some councillors are hopeful
that changes to the bylaw will
provide the bylaw office with
the ability to enforce such regulations.
According to Van Peuter, however, town council doesnt recognize the value of the business
in Strathmore as more than just
taking citizens from A to B.
Ive dealt with children being
born in the taxi to people dying
in the taxi, he said. We deal
with everything that comes our
way. As a town [they] have left
the taxis unprotected in every
way, and this council should be
ashamed of itself.

Summer writing has come to an end


ANDREA ROBERTS
Times Contributor

Well Strathmore Times readers, my summer internship has come to an end and sadly that means
I must leave you and return to Mount Royal University for my next year of schooling. This summer
has been definitely been one to remember. I have
experienced many new and exciting things, met so
many interesting people, and gained a little bit of
self-confidence along the way.
Over the past few months I have learned so many
things both as a journalist and as a person. I find
that now I can call people on the phone without
sounding like a ball of nervous energy, my photography skills have improved, and my writing is
a little more refined. I would like to say that the
improvements were all of my own doing but alas
that would not be the truth. It was the mentorship
and friendly atmosphere of my co-workers at the
Strathmore Times that helped me to grow and making me feel like I was part of the community.
While working for this paper I have experienced
so much that will stay with me forever. Watching
one of my favourite country singers Kira Isabella
up close at the CRIR15 was a dream come true.
Then there were the Canada Day celebrations at

Andrea
Roberts
learned
how to
drive a
team of
horses.

Kinsmen Park which I helped to cover while enjoy the wonderful event the community put on.
Stampede weekend will also stick with me because
while I may have gotten a really bad sunburn and
blisters on my feet, I was taught to drive a team of
horses and got my heart pounding as I stood centre
field to take pictures of brave folks who decided to
participate in Running with the Bulls.
So dear readers I thank you for reading my stories and generally just being great people. It has
been an honour to work for this newspaper and
an honour to work in such an amazing town. Stay
awesome Strathmore and you may just see me next
summer.

Wheatland Lodge CAO retires


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Former deputy reeve, Shirley Reinhardt, will be
stepping down from her position as chief administrative officer with the Wheatland Lodge after a
22-year career, to spend more time with her family.
Reinhardts political career commenced in 1992,
lasting 18 years at Wheatland County while overcoming many obstacles and responsibilities. During her time in office, she was present for high
profile projects including the road paving for the
secondary highways, the beginning of the Calgary
Regional Partnership, and the areas economic development.
I like the countys system and I like what was
happening, said Reinhardt, about her time in office.
The starting of a regional partnership with Calgary and I guess its gone into how are we going
to have the town assist on their own? and I was
vice-chair on that. I think the developments were
big with 20-acre parcels and they wanted to come
in and the economy changed to have smaller parcels. Where was a whole new plan of operation.
She eventually got out of the smaller programs
and expanded into the bigger ones like environmental farming plans and the delivery-of-water
conversation, as well as planning and promoting.
There was also a time where Reinhardt took
on the responsibilities of communicating with the
government about the completion of road paving
around the area.
Other highlights included being involved with
the transition of moving the county offices from
the old building, which is now the Golden Hills
School Division No. 75 school board building,
and the ambulance services.
I was very instrumental in that with Rob Witty,
she said.
I served on the ambulance re-delivery for the
province. I got to go to Edmonton a lot on that.
That was really good and if I had to pick (as a favourite highlight), itd probably be the ambulance.
That was a lot of work because we know we have
a number one service in Alberta and were one of
the forerunners, a lot of people looked how we
did it.
She added that Witty should be commended for

services in Strathmore and surrounding area.
According to Reinhardt, it was frosting on the
cake to move from the county to Wheatland
Lodge because she is delighted to be able to help
seniors have a better life.

all my life and to help make their time here as


good as I can do it, said Reinhardt.
Ben Armstrong, who was the reeve during Reinhardts six years as deputy reeve, thinks that
she was a really hard worker that really knew her
facts about county issues.
She was a teacher, said Armstrong.
We had a group of Russians and Germans over
and they visited the county. They went through
municipalities and how we operate it over in this
country. One of the guys asked Whats a deputy
reeve do ? and I said deputy reeve, thats like
Chester on Matt Dillon. The deputy reeve makes
the sheriff look good and she did. She looked
after the fine points, she knew names, protocol
and she kept everybody honest.
Armstrong added that if Reinhardt had an idea,
the others would have to fight to voice their ideas.
Fifty-three years ago, then wife and mother Reinhardt raised a family with her husband Alfred.
Shortly after, she stumbled upon her second career, this time in politics, before taking on the
CAO position for Wheatland Housing Management Board, which she calls her fourth career.
Now coming full circle, after a fulfilling and successful working life, Reinhardt will return home
to spend time with her nine grandchildren, children, and husband.

Hussar picked for setting of short film


MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Hussars rural roots and rustic details
will embolden production company
Leftside Pictures creative vision, as
they construct their film set and equipment to capture their second short film,
Metanoia, this week.
Self-taught filmmaker from Calgary,
Levi Holwell, jotted down the story
line seven months ago and since then
has accumulated a 10-member cast and
even bigger crew. The village was chosen to provide the ideal backdrop for
the 12-minute short film, that even incorporates Hussar Mayor Tim Franks
nearly 100-year-old house.
Oddly enough when I first started

the writing the project earlier this year,


I just always had a deep love for smaller
and rural Alberta and we just wanted
to use a community like Hussar to do
our best to showcase the history and
the unique landscape that the Badlands area of Alberta has, the 20-yearold Holwell said. As far as filmmaking goes, its just been trial and error.
I just firmly believe in making projects,
messing up badly, and then learning
from those mistakes and being better
the next time. Its all of these wonderful art forms and you have all these
different avenues to express yourself
and bring out different emotions and
responses, hopefully in an audience, if
you do a good job.

Leftside Pictures in collaboration with


21-year-old Gabe Romero, a musician
and producer who is working on the
Metanoia soundtrack.
Thus far the company has created
numerous music videos and one other
short film.
However, with the cast including University of Calgary students and graduated acting students, the project is already forcing Holwell and Romero to
step out of their comfort zones.
Were dealing with a big crew, we
have a lot of actors from the university,
we have a great location a great house,
its really exciting just to be a part of it,
Romero said.
On set, weve never had so many actual people that want to be there. Its

just using them correctly, not wasting


anyones time, and keeping them on
schedule.
The script revolves around change,
and a young womans struggle with
identity and regaining control of her
life in an action thriller genre. The intention behind the execution of the production is to film the scenes in genres
they would normally not be expected
to appear as.
Once completed, Leftside Pictures
intends to have a live showing in Calgary, before submitting the project to
Canadian film festivals first locally, and
building up to bigger events such as
Vancouver, Ontario, and Montreal.
The cast and crew will be visiting the
Village of Hussar for filming on Aug. 20
to Aug. 22. Filming then continues for
the final days on Aug. 29 to Aug. 30.
Residents are asked not to park their
vehicles on 1st Avenue West on Aug.
30, and the road will be blocked off
starting at Centre Street to 2nd Street
from 3 p.m. to sunset.
Any concerns are to be directed to
the village office. To take a look at Leftside Pictures projects, visit vimeo.com/

Learning is a lifelong process, and
with the back-to-school season looming adult learners can get excited too,
with the course offerings from Wheatland Further Education Society (WFES).
WFES is a non-profit society that
promotes learning in adults within
Wheatland County and runs on a community-based learning system. This
means bringing the learning into the
community rather than the other way
around. This is to encourage a passion
for learning.
WFES is often the first point of access for learners, said Joyce Bazant,
the executive director.
Its focus is to establish a community
where adult learners can participate
with confidence and fulfill their learning needs.
Bazant explained that the societys
vision is about being an associate to
adult learners to encourage learning
and therefore improve the community
as a whole.
The society will be releasing their
course calendar in the Sept. 3 issue
of the Strathmore Times. The calendar
will feature the 40 classes offered in the
fall semester that runs from September
to mid-December. The classes all fall
within different subjects that are offered. The subjects include English language learning,
French as a second language, literacy
and foundational learning, business, finance and computers, personal development, safety and wellness, and general interest. They also offer children &
youth classes.

The Garnett family celebrated 100 years of
farming on the same
land and received the
Alberta Century Farm
and Ranch award on
Aug. 8.

Garnett family farm


celebrates 100 years
ANDREA ROBERTS
Times Contributor

Staying in the family business is no
easy feat but for the Garnett family,
farming is in their blood.
Not only did they recently celebrate
100 years on their family farm, but they
were also the recipients of the Alberta
Century Farm and Ranch Award.
The award, which is given to families
that have actively owned and farmed
the same land for 100 years, was presented to the family by Wheatland
County councillor Don Vander Velde.
The celebration was attended by roughly 160 people.
I guess it was a beautiful day, said
Gary Garnett, the fourth generation of
Garnetts to farm the land. Everything
went really well.
The family was originally from Ontario but moved to Summerland, B.C. to
start an orchard. In 1915 Garys greatgrandfather Edmund Garnett traded the
orchard for the farm in Carseland and
moved the family to Alberta.

VISION Inspiring confident, connected, caring citizens of the world

Gary joked that on some weeks it


would be nice to still be in Summerland,
but obviously trading in the Orchard
must have been a really good change
as they have been here 100 years.
The farm has been part of the family for six generations of Garnetts who
farm grain, wheat, barley and canola.
Currently Gary and his wife Nancy live
on the farm. They have three daughters and two sons and a two-month old
grandson. Garys parents John and Maureen also live on the farm, in an unconventional home, a converted grain bin.
Gary explains that the previous owners
used to farm oats and so had a number of grain bins to house the bushels.
However, when they moved on to other
crops they didnt need as many bins,
and they moved one bin onto a hill and
converted it into a home.
It is a really nice house, but as it was
a grain bin before it was a house we
dont know how old the house actually
is, Gary said.
The award ceremony and celebration
took place at the family farm on Aug. 8.

Memory Lane pathway


project underway in
Standard
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Nearly 100 years after the
Canadian Pacific Railway
(CPR) donated a one-kilometer stretch of park area to
the village of Standard, the
Standard Community Facility Enhancement Society
is planning on turning the
grassy patch into a pathway
that preserves the communitys history a project with
a $300,000 cost attached.
The land, which was donated in 1923, remained untouched for years. Following much interest among
community members, the
society was formed to raise
funds and turn the green
space into an enjoyable
walkway and bicycle path.
Having attracted attention
from Don Sundgaard, Jackie Jensen, Moe Zaleschuk,
Louise Welen, Standard
Councillor Ron Corbiell,
and Standard Mayor Alan
Larsen who are the six directors on the society the
project is now gaining momentum.
I saw ladies walking on
Hwy 840, which has almost
no shoulder, sometimes
with their baby carriages,
which was kind of a dangerous situation, said Don
Sundgaard, president of the
Standard Community Facility Enhancement Society. I
thought why dont we take
this park and make it into
a pathway for walking and
cycling. Were going to be
planting shrubs and trees
and putting a water system
in, but the important thing
is the pathway for people
for exercise, but also to
preserve the history of the
families and businesses that
build the community and
surrounding area.
The proposed three-year
project, named Memory
Lane, is 100 feet wide and

one kilometer long, located


on the Old Elevator Road
along Christian Avenue.
Unlike most pathways,
however, Memory Lane
seeks to preserve and emphasize the bygone days of
the community by erecting
signs along the way highlighting the history of businesses, elevators, and other
items associated with the
400-resident village over the
past 100 years.
The society has already
begun applying for various grants, including federal grants, to reach their
$300,000 goal. While the
organization, which currently contains 20 members
and six directors, hopes to
break ground later this year,
the project is anticipated to
reach completion in 2017,
just in time for the 150-year
anniversary of Confederation.
That park is old and
theres never really been
anything done with it, said
Jackie Jensen, vice-president of the Standard Community Facility Enhancement Society.
Were just in the infancy
stages. Were raising money,
getting opinions, and having a few public meetings.
It recognized some of the
older people and the older
things that were around at
that time, and maybe we
can just help to beautify the
community with it too.
The site stretches one kilometers west from Hwy
840, and used to contain
the railway station, the Esso
service fertilizer dealership,
and the grain elevators.
The society hopes to recruit more members, and
has already held a few public hearings, which they said
received a great turnout.
Their next one is expected
to be held in the spring of
2016.

Caught in the act: homeowner


interrupts break and enter
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

A heist at a residence in Rockyview
County went amiss on Aug.
14, when the owner of the
home interrupted the culprit in the act in the late
afternoon.
Strathmore RCMP responded to the complaint
regarding the break and
enter, however, the suspect had already fled the
scene. After the homeowner confronted the culprit, a
scuffle followed where the
individual tried to intimidate the owner by yelling Calgary City

Police. Shortly afterwards


the man fled the residence in
an older model vehicle with
blue paint on the side, rusted
wheels,
and
a
spoiler
on
the
back.
There
are break
and enters that

the
detachment
area every day and our best advice to people is to ensure
that you keep your vehicles locked and your house
(locked) when youre not
home, said Cpl. Jay Salmon,
with the Strathmore RCMP

detachment. If you ever find


somebody that shouldnt be
in your house, and they are
there, immediately call 9-11, because you never know
if the person is armed and
has a weapon. Safety is the
utmost concern, so call 9-1-1
right away. I dont want to see
anyone get hurt.
The suspect is described as
a Caucasian male, approximately 51 with stocky build
with a darker complexion,
and is estimated between 30
to 35 years old.
Various items of jewellery
and keys are believed to have
been stolen during the incident.
Anyone with more information is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477, or the Strathmore
RCMP at 403-934-3968.

Youth Club
fundraises for
the communitys
youth
ANDREA ROBERTS
Times Contributor

As a new aspect to the community service portion of the Youth Club of Strathmore, the Alberta Childrens Hospital
will receive a nice chunk of change as
a result of numerous fundraising events.
Basically the club is adopting a program of kids helping kids, said Shannon Zieman, the program director of the
Youth Club. They are going to focus for
the very first time on kids raising money
or different events that directly impact
other kids.
The youths in the club made the decision to donate the money to the hospital
as one of their members is a frequent
visitor. The club has raised $849.80 as
of Aug. 17, through events such as a car
wash, a bake sale and a bottle drive. The
children will travel to the hospital where
they will donate their hard-earned proceeds on Aug. 21 and will then receive a
tour of the facilities.
Zieman explained that they will continue with the program of kids helping
kids and hope to form a fund that can be
used to buy backpacks and school supplies, or to help families with the school
fees if they are unable to afford them.
This ensures that the money goes directly back into the community.
While the clubs youths are helping
residents in the community, the club
will be hosting its bi-annual fundraising
event to help offset programming costs.
The adult-only comedy night is usually held in June, but has been postponed this year until Sept. 12 at the Civic
Centre. Tickets can be bought from the
Youth Club for $25.

Investigation
ongoing into
home invasion
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Strathmore RCMP are investigating a
home invasion that took place in the early
morning on Aug 16, they believe was not a
random act.
The officers were dispatched to a rural
residence near Strathmore at approximately
3 a.m. on Sunday.
Although the perpetrators were no longer
at the scene when the RCMP arrived at the
residence, one for the residents suffered minor injuries.
Police continue to investigate and no further information is available at this time.
Anyone who has further information is
asked to call the Strathmore RCMP at 403934-3968, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 to remain anonymous. Reports can
also be submitted online at www.tipsubmit.

15 Minutes of Fame music


festival celebrates 10th year
LAUREEN F. GUENTHER
Times Contributor

15 Minutes of Fame music festival celebrates its tenth anniversary with another
noon-to-dusk event in Rosebud, Aug. 30,
bringing in new and familiar performers.
John Wort Hannam is one of the returning musicians.
He was very loved last year, so we
wanted to bring him back, said Carmen
Paterson, festival organizer.
The Dearhearts, regional champions in
this years CBC Searchlight Competition,
are also returning.

Country Blues Rock n roll


Featuring: Lyndsay Butler, Chris Cummings,
Larry Vannatta, Sykamore, Drew Gregory,
Domino & 17 other Artists

Rob Lagace and Mitch Belot, new last


year, are also performing, as are Rosebud alumni Erin Burke with her band
The Loose Kannons; Jessica Benini, a
one-woman band who recently performed on Broadway; and Jason Bertsch
with his acoustic blues trio. Singer-songwriter Natalie Inga Gauthier and Me and
the Mrs. will also be back.
Randall Wiebe will again paint his impromptu 15-minute portrait of an audience volunteer.
Thats always a favorite of everybody,
Paterson said.
Soul and pop performer KevLa, from
Edmonton, and songwriter-guitarist
Caitlyn OConnor, a second-year Rosebud student, are performing for the first
time. Christina Colyn of Calgary, with
her roots-blues-rock band, is also new.
This years festival is also introducing a
music workshop by John Wort Hannam.
This is really normal in other festivals, where a whole bunch of musicians
will get on the stage and kind of just
jam with each other for a bit, Paterson
said. Its like you get to see the inside
of a little rehearsal, but its a little more
polished.
Before the festival, Hannam will work
with the musicians over the weekend;
then, with Paul Zacharias of the Southern Alberta Songwriting Society, theyll
perform a concert in Thorny Rose Caf
on Saturday night.
As before, the festival will feature
Artists Alley and Vendors Lane, where
festival-goers can peruse booths displaying Fireside Tea, developed by Rosebud
alumna Karl Sine; Rosebud Honey; and
the photography of Kjel Erickson. Alberta-made VK Aroma Therapy Oil and Pain
Spray will be available, and so will Lam
Jam, made by Richard Lam of Calgary.
Wild Horse Jacks Restaurant and the
Thorny Rose Caf will be open for lunch,
supper and snacks. In honor of the festivals tenth anniversary, Paterson said,
the crowd will sing Happy birthday to
15, and everyone will enjoy a slice of
birthday cake.
Get tickets for $18 ($45 for families) in
advance at rosebudcentreofthearts.com,
or for $20 ($50 for families) at the door.
Paterson reminds us its a cash event.
Doors open at 11 a.m.
Were going to have Garf (Garfield
Sproule) kick it off with O Canada with
his electric guitar, and then the Badland
Boars will bring us into party mode, Paterson said. I always hope people get
there at noon, because the show has
such a great starting that Im always sad
when people miss it.

Since the Wheatland Cup was established four years ago between the Strathmore Golf Club and the Muirfield Lake
Golf Club, golfers have been competing
in a Ryder Cup-style format to determine
a winner of a two-day event that kicked
off in Strathmore last weekend.
Strathmore Golf Club has been undefeated since the tournaments creation,
leading assistant pro Josh Witty to think
they have a recipe to keep the winning
streak going this year event.
[Its] just kind of a friendly rivalry
back and forth for both clubs, said Witty. With the ladies and mens teams and
we just see who has the most points and
then they win the Wheatland Cup.
Witty added the club takes active golfers that have played in club tournaments
throughout the year.
It kind of just depends whos available, said Witty. Some people are unable to make it. We just try to find some

Markus Lavallee tournament


provided great memories
JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Seventy players from various elite
hockey leagues played with pride and
passion in honour of their friend and
popular teammate Markus Lavallee in
the first annual memorial tournament
in his name last weekend at the Strathmore Family Centre.
Over the two-day event, which was
organized in memory of Lavallee who
passed unexpectedly in a vehicle collision earlier this summer, hockey was
being played, friendships resumed
and new ones made in the game that
Lavallee dearly loved.
Markuss father Derek Lavallee, who
coached behind the Team Red bench,
was touched by the support that his
family received from the Town of
Strathmore and the hockey community through this difficult time.
The support from the people in the
town has been beyond words, said
Lavallee. I couldnt say enough about
how everybody stepped up in a short
span of time and got so much done.
So many donations and the Town of
Strathmore donating the ice for this
tournament to be the success that it

is.
Hell never forget the comment his
son made to him three months ago
about moving from Chestermere,
where he was raised, to Strathmore .
He said it was a nice place but he
said dad, people in Strathmore are so
nice, recalls Lavallee. Weve made
it our home and were proud to call it
our home.
For the Lavallee family, to come back
to the rink was emotional but seeing
all the players that his son touched
was a special moment.
Its therapy, said Lavallee. For me
to be out there with the boys and listen
to them chirp and have a great time, it
was therapeutic. I enjoyed every second of it. I was looking forward to getting here this morning and get going.
I hope its helping some of them heal
because some of the boys have been
having a hard time and its great to see
them smile.
The players who participated in the
tournament felt there was no better
way to honour their fallen teammate
than playing against each other and
have fun as Markus would have.
I love it because he affected so
many people and it just brings us to-

Supermoto thrilled with Strathmore track


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The Alberta Mini RoadRacing Association and (AMRA) the Rocky Mountain
Motards club held a race at the NorthStar Raceway at the Strathmore Motosports Park on Aug. 16.
AMRA, who have been around since
the early 90s, joined with the Calgary
Kart Racing Club to call the Strathmore
track their new home earlier this year,
with many racers of various skill levels
participating in the event from all over
the western provinces.
The new track is nice, we really like
it, said Chuck Downie, AMRA president. Our old track was a challenge,
but this one here, theyve added a few
corners that are even more of a challenge from a riders standpoint. Most
people had trouble at first but now
theyre liking it because it makes them
try harder.
Downie liked what he saw on the
track with racers, but said it wouldve
been nice to have more riders out to
provide more competition. He thought
since the track was new, it proved to
be more of a testing year after a year
off.
It is kind of the first year, said
Downie. It actually started off pretty
good. Because we had a whole year off

where that track was down and (we)


didnt have a new one. People go do
other things like we did ourselves because you got to find something to do.
Mini racing has had its ups and
downs over the years, but Downie
mentioned that it can be a great core
sport for everyone.
Its kind of ebbed and flowed with
the economy, said Downie People
are doing other things, something else
gets their attention, but its always been
a good core sport.
If riders are interested in participating in the sport they will have to follow certain guidelines in order to race
with the Supermoto, which are the dirt
bikes based on the 450cc, and the mini
bikes are required to meet a minimum
of a 200cc engine.
Jonathan Finn of Bushell Park, Sask.,
has been riding from a very young age
and found inspiration from within his
family to ride.
I got into racing when I was six
years old, said Finn, who is now 12
years old.
It wasnt really me that decided that
I wanted to race. It was kind of my
dad and grandfather that took me out
to a go-kart track and we were going
to get into go-karting, but it turns out
it was the Bikes National weekend in
Regina. My dads friends son, he races

and I was lucky to go out for a couple


of sessions. Then the following Christmas I got a Honda Sierra 50 and pretty
much after that Ive been progressing
through the levels.
He really likes the Strathmore track
because he feels it really tested his
abilities.
I like the set-up because its one
of the tracks where you work to succeed, he said. Theres lots of elevation
changes and thats the fun part. Its not
the greatest location because theres
lots of sand everywhere but it doesnt
really effect anything.
For the Rocky Mountain Motards
club president Jim Titmus, the speed is
not the biggest factor on this track and
he believes that it comes down to talent on the track.
This new track here in Strathmore is
awesome, said Titmus. Its built on a
side of a hill as you can see. Were going up and down and twist and turns.
Youre constantly turning so horsepower isnt always the name of the game.
Its all talent.
According to Titmus, the key factor
in being successful in Supermoto is
knowing how to ride on and off the
road.
The circuit also goes to British Columbia and Saskatchewan every year,
for those who want a variety of tracks.

Schmit caught off guard at SFL 42


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

Strathmore MMA fighter
Justin Schmit was confident
for his bout with Matt Krayco at Super Fighting League
42 on Aug. 15 at the Stampede Corral, but he came
out on the wrong end of the
tilt, tapped out under Kraycos triangular leg lock.
The fight began with
a leg kick by Krayco before Schmit pushed him up
against the cage and wrestled the nine-year fighter
down giving him jabs to the

head.
However Krayco was able
to gain control back and
Schmit, who was warned
about the triangle, was
caught in that position, and
Krayco came up with the
victory.
Schmit praised his younger opponent for his compete
level and finding ways to
keep him off guard.
I didnt expect him to be
as good off his back as he
was, said Schmit. He was
active and he worked hard.
He was constantly working
for stuff. Everything went

according to plan. Hes a


tough kid, and hes fought a
lot tougher guys than me in
his career.
He did mention that there
were some strategies that
were swirling in his head
in the ring, but admitted
that theres improvement
required concerning some
techniques.
We couldve gotten back
up, but I dont have the confidence in my stand up right
now and I dont know why
that is, said Schmit. I think
it was coming off that knockout loss two fights ago.
Theres a whole number of
things that I have to change
with whats going on.
The positives that Schmit
took out of this fight was
that he stayed healthy, but
said that hed rather get busted up and win the fight.
This was his third dropped
decision in a row, and he is
now is pondering his future
in the sport, as he would like
to focus on developing kids
in MMA and his business
with APEX in Strathmore.
I hate to make a decision
on my career on an emotion,
said Schmit. There are a lot
of things I have to focus on
with my business at the gym.
We have some great kids that
I want to spend some time
with.
He does not expect to be
back in the ring any time
soon.

Strathmore MMA fighter Justin Schmit was well prepared for his bout against Matt
Krayco but lost in a tap out during the first round at SFL 42 on Aug. 15 at the Stampede
Coral in Calgary.

Mortgage Matters by Strathmores Mortgage Specialist


Mortgages versus credit cards are you at your limit?
Most people who own a home have a credit card. You need it for all kinds of major purchases: a new TV, building a
new deck, maybe even new appliances or better yet, a much needed, well-deserved, yes you earned it, kind of vacation.
Everyone knows that the best thing you can do is pay off the credit card every month. So a few months have gone by and
that credit card balance is still there. Now wait a minute, something else happened to you and your life and that credit
card balance is still there. Time has slipped by and you have been carrying a $15,000 balance on your credit card at 21
per cent interest for months now. No big deal, I will just keep making the minimum payments.
Yes you must make the minimum payments - but it will not get paid off this way. Its not entirely your fault. You make
the some money, have the same expenses, live the same lifestyle, and the lottery is just not working the way it used to.
If you own your own home, consider refinancing. If you are able to to pay off all these credit lines and debts owing how
would that make you feel. If you have a mortgage of $300,000 and you are able to add $15,000 to it and pay it all off at
3 per cent, the savings can be huge and the impact to your life can be substantial in two key ways. First your going to save
money in what you pay in interest. The second and most commonly overlooked piece to this is that
you will reduce your overall payments as well. So not only will you be saving money you will free
up more cash which you can use in any number of ways including paying off your mortgage faster.
Do yourself a favour, review your credit card statements. Go back as far as you have to to the first
month when you started carrying a balance over zero. If that was more than three months ago or
your credit card is at its limit, give me a call youll be glad you did.

Sandhills Rodeo back for a fourth year


JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

The fourth annual Sandhills Rodeo will hold a sanctioned rodeo for the first time with the Chinook Rodeo
Association later this month, in an effort have more
participation and more fan support come out later this
month.
Sandhills Rodeo Club member Floyd Good Eagle
said this will help reduce problems they had encountered in the past and aid financially.
Weve been running it the last three years as an
open rodeo, said Good Eagle.
We werent making too much. In fact last year, the
third rodeo we had, there was supposed to be 15 bull
riders and only six showed up. So now with the Chinook Rodeo Association, theyre going to handle all
the entries.

With the rodeo being sanctioned, it will guarantee


that all the riders will show up and participate.
Failure to show up will result in the rodeo contestant having to pay a fine, plus the entry fees.
He anticipates that with this format that there will
be lots of riders and rodeo fans who will be entertained by a mixture of competitors.
They told us that they will be expecting a lot of
people, said Good Eagle.
The majority of them in the Chinook Rodeo Association and there is a contingent there from down south,
Blood tribe and everything. Thats what we want is a
lot of entries and keep going up the ladder and along
with that there will be more spectators. Thats why
were working hard to build on our facilities there.
The rodeo will be fairly fast paced, as the Sandhills
Rodeo Club wants to make it interesting, and not a
drawn out affair.

Yellowhorn earns a
spot in Cougars den
JUSTIN SEWARD
Times Reporter

First Nations Athletics member and
Siksikas own Tyis Yellowhorn recently
earned himself a spot on the Mount
Royal Cougars basketball team, another
triumph that continues to be inspirational to his family, his team and community.
The goal of First Nations Athletics is
to assist their athletes with gaining confidence and reaching their full potential.
Over the years, Yellowhorn has
racked up numerous accomplishments
including basketball league MVP, an all
star in volleyball and three-time Athlete
of the Year for each year he attended
Chestermere High School.
Last year, playing for the Chestermere
Lakers, he led the team in assists and
points en route to the teams 37-1 record.
His skills and dedication have not
only attracted attention from his coaches, but his community.
First Nations Athletics owner, Billy
Gorrell, knew there was something special about Yellowhorn when they profiled him as one of their athletes.
When Tyis had his profile posted,
our social media, in regards to what
he brought to the table was huge, said
Gorrell. A lot of people in the Calgary
area, the sports community, the Piikani
Nation, the Kainai Nation and the Tsu
Tina recognized what he was doing.

The impact he is having is needed in


our community, he is a role model for
those kids and he can show those kids
that anything is possible and its just by
playing basketball and focusing his time
and energy on something positive.
Yellowhorns piqued interest in
sports goes back to his Grade 7 year at
Crowther Memorial High School when
his parents, Mar Nai and Shay, coached
him.
Tyiss dad was influential through his
athletic career, having taught him how
to play basketball at age of five, and
contributing to his ambition of acting as
a role model to his younger brothers.
It was always important to my parents that I played in basketball to get
an education. Im just excited and cant
wait to get things started, said Yellowhorn. I know I first became a role
model through my two younger brothers and I just wanted to set a good example for them and I help inspire them,
the way my dad inspired me.
Having both of his parents attend
Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) fuelled Yellowhorns desire
to play the game. However, according to
his father Shay, the game came naturally
to him.
The one year when he got a little
older, we introduced him to basketball
and he just took to it right away, recalled Shay.
Yellowhorn has tremendous vision
on the floor and that is what his father

CLASSIFIEDS
THANK YOUS

Thank You

I would like to extend a sincere thank you to


friends, family, neighbours old and new and
everyone who has been so thoughtful and kind
during Kims recent illness and subsequent death.
The food, flowers, calls, cards and transportation
when needed have been so appreciated.
Special thanks to all those who made a donation
in memory of Kim. It helps so much to know how
many people thought kindly of him.
Gina Rumohr

Mount Royal Universitys newest basketball team


member Tyis Yellowhorn, has become a role
model for his younger siblings and community
members over the years.

thinks has made him successful this far.


Hes a good kid, said Shay. His basketball IQ, hes a smart player on floor.
He reads the game really well, he could
see plays developing and it was just a
matter of his athleticism and catching
up to his peers.
While the Cougars expectations are
not as demanding in the first year, Yellowhorn hopes to learn and become a
better player as his tenure with MRU
goes on.
Just building for the future I want
to become a better player, he said. It
might not happen this year, it might not
happen next year, but later on down the
road I just want to be able to help my
team win.
He added it will be difficult at times
being a student-athlete, but knows he
has the support from his family to get
through them.
Yellowhorns former coach at Chestermere High School, Rob Wilson, saw tremendous growth in him over the three
years he coached him.
I think hes always been very talented, said Wilson. Hes one of those guys
that puts in a lot of work and a lot of effort into playing. Ive seen him improve
since he was in Grade 10 into his Grade
12 year, where he was just a premier
player in the province of Alberta.
Wilson added that his hard work and
dedication to the sport made players
around him better, which played a big
factor in the high school team having
one of its better years in recent history.
He plans to enroll in business come
the fall.
Im pretty excited about it, just to
start the next chapter in my basketball
and academic career, said Yellowhorn

The family of Eileen Drummond would like


to express our sincere thanks to everyone for all the
acts of kindness shown to us since Moms passing.
We would like to thank Winston Sproule for the
lovely service and Laura Edwards for her enduring
friendship with Mom and her comforting words at
the service. Thanks go to the U.C.W. for the delicious
lunch after the service. We would also like to thank
Donalda Ledene and Karen Wilkie who prepared
supper for the family and to Bonnie and Hannah
who served us the meal. Thank you to Kelsey
Drummond for all the time she put into the fantastic
power point presentation and to Don Janzen for
making sure everything worked at the church.
We also want to thank Kelsey and Cameron for the
powerful pipe and drums musical selections that
you performed. Grandma and Grandpa would have
been very pleased. Finally, thanks to all our friends,
family and neighbours for all the calls, texts, prayers,
cards, food and condolences.
We live in a marvelous community.
Heather, Andrew, Laura, Don, Russ,
Carol Ann, Neil, Julie and families.

Mortgage Matters by Strathmores Mortgage Specialist


Mortgages versus credit cards are you at your limit?
Most people who own a home have a credit card. You need it for all kinds of major purchases: a new TV, building a
new deck, maybe even new appliances or better yet, a much needed, well-deserved, yes you earned it, kind of vacation.
Everyone knows that the best thing you can do is pay off the credit card every month. So a few months have gone by and
that credit card balance is still there. Now wait a minute, something else happened to you and your life and that credit
card balance is still there. Time has slipped by and you have been carrying a $15,000 balance on your credit card at 21
per cent interest for months now. No big deal, I will just keep making the minimum payments.
Yes you must make the minimum payments - but it will not get paid off this way. Its not entirely your fault. You make
the some money, have the same expenses, live the same lifestyle, and the lottery is just not working the way it used to.
If you own your own home, consider refinancing. If you are able to to pay off all these credit lines and debts owing how
would that make you feel. If you have a mortgage of $300,000 and you are able to add $15,000 to it and pay it all off at
3 per cent, the savings can be huge and the impact to your life can be substantial in two key ways. First your going to save
money in what you pay in interest. The second and most commonly overlooked piece to this is that
you will reduce your overall payments as well. So not only will you be saving money you will free
up more cash which you can use in any number of ways including paying off your mortgage faster.
Do yourself a favour, review your credit card statements. Go back as far as you have to to the first
month when you started carrying a balance over zero. If that was more than three months ago or
your credit card is at its limit, give me a call youll be glad you did.
