ey to worthwhile community projects. The club can

panding the program.
Valancy Mitchell, Account Executive for Action In-
surance in Strathmore, is an Aviva broker. She said
part of Action Insurances company goals are to sup-
port the community and bring it together. She nomi-

more Youth Centre has the most impact. Community,
schools, and businesses everything is effected by
youth, said Mitchell.
She is encouraging the community to get behind

ready shown their support by ordering wristbands ad-
vertising the contest.
We want everyone to support the youth in our
community. They are our next leaders, said Mitchell.

The Strathmore hospital frst opened
its doors in 1985. Since that time the
town has quadrupled in population,
and the medical staff in the community
have struggled to keep up with the de-
mands.
The need for more physicians in
Strathmore is evident, as is the need
for an after-hours walk-in clinic to help
ease some of the congestion the hospi-
tals emergency ward deals with.
Were getting pressures from Calgary,
from Chestermere, Langdon and emer-
gency is really the only after-hours care
clinic that is provided. Emergency vis-
its are tremendously expensive; theyll
cost easily 10 times what it would cost
in an offce setting. Patients are getting
frustrated, and staff are getting frustrat-
ed and I think its just time for an after-
hours clinic, said Strathmore physician
Dr. J. Fanning.
On the evening of Oct. 15 the Valley
Strathmores frst walk-in clinic now open
Dr. J. Fanning and his
associates at the Val-
ley medical Clinic are
happy to announce
the expansion of the
clinic and the opening
the walk in clinic. The
after hours clinic will
be open from 5 p.m.
until 9 p.m. on mon-
day evenings.

Medical Clinic, which Fanning practic-
es out of, was open for the frst time as
an after-hours walk-in clinic. Fanning
said he really hopes to see some of
the other clinics in town participate in
the program and open their own after
hours clinics, which are sponsored by
the Primary Care Network (PCN).
Fanning explained that the PCN is a
collaboration where physicians can di-
rect funding to where they think the
need is, and an evening walk in clinic
is one of the highest needs in Strath-
more.
Another need for Strathmore is fnd-
ing three to four full-service physicians.
It would be absolutely amazing
what would happen with services here
if we could recruit just three full-ser-
vice physicians, things would change
quite a bit because it really frees us up
to do more things, said Fanning.
Were looking for physicians that
want to work in acute care, in emer-
gency and in an offce setting. A lot
of visits to emergencies are truly not
emergencies but people go there be-
cause they have no other option. Costs
are high, it clogs the systems and it
doesnt create a great atmosphere.
Were also building on to our clinic
here. Were hoping to attract new phy-
sicians to town. If we could get three
or four new physicians in town who
are truly full-service physicians, then
we will be able to offer even expanded
services for the town, flling our need
for acute care and flling our need for
community-based physicians.
The walk-in clinic is new to the town.
Fanning said the hope is to attract
the patients who are sitting in emer-
gency and who realize they shouldnt
be there. Fanning said they are look-
ing for the smaller medical issues that
can easily be taken care of at the clinic.
For example if it is a small laceration,
then people are encouraged to go to
the clinic instead of emergency, but if
its a big thing, a possible heart attack
then it is likely not appropriate for the
walk in clinic.
If there is something we cant han-
dle here we of course would refer to
the emergency and all of us work in
emergency so we work in both camps.
Likely in the hospital if things are quite
busy theyll point out to the patient
that look youre going to have a long
wait here, theres an evening clinic if
you want to go, said Fanning.
We really promote that anyone who
walks in follows up with a family doc-
tor. Were a walk-in clinic and give sort
of urgent care for that time but we re-
ally stress that we want them to follow
up with their family doctors.
Work has begun on the expansion
of the clinic. It will be in the area be-
tween Strathmores Florist and the Val-
ley Medical Clinic, and will be fll in the
space which had previously been the
parking lot. Fanning hopes other clin-
ics will jump on board and it could be
coordinated to maybe see each clinic
take a day a week so that an evening
walk-in clinic is available every eve-
ning to those who need it.
The town has been keen on the is-
sue and there are recruiting ideas that
will probably be launched in the next
month or so. Currently the town has
approximately a dozen physicians.
Fanning has been here since 1985
and said Strathmore is a great medical
community, and a great place to raise
children. He thinks it is the perfect
place for a full service physician to call
home.
The walk-in clinic will be open from
5 p.m. until 9 p.m. every Monday.
Based on the demand, and the number
of patients each Monday evening the
doors to the clinic may close at 8 p.m.
Patients already in the clinic will still
be helped even if it runs past 9 p.m.
However, if the demand is low then the
doors will remain open until 9 p.m.
The clinic is open to all unsched-
uled patients and will operate on a frst
come, frst serve basis. The clinic is lo-
cated at 231 2nd Ave.

Every school has a different program or part of the cur-
riculum for each class to do some sort of good works, good
citizenship type of project. The Grade 6 class at Westmount
Elementary School recently held an in school fundraiser for
the Wheatland Food Bank.
In Grade 6 they learn about government and how to par-
ticipate even if youre not of voting age, even things like
giving back to your community, said teacher Danielle Plett.
So we decided that (the students) wanted to do some kind
of a community service type project. As a class they basically
had a discussion about it, we did lots of brainstorming, came
up with ideas, and they voted and decided this was going to
be our frst project.
The students looked at different organizations around
Strathmore, and decided as a class to support the food bank.
After looking on the food banks website the students saw
that cash donations are used to buy meat and other perish-
able items that arent commonly donated.
We did a Wear a Hat for a Buck Day and everybody that
brings a dollar could wear a hat for the whole day. A rule
at school is that we usually arent allowed to wear hats in
school, said student Sam Ancell.
Announcements were made on the PA system, posters
were made and the class spread the word as much as pos-
sible to the entire school.
We raised quite a bit actually, said Noah Desjardins.
In total the class was able to raise $300 for the food bank.
The need for money to purchase perishable items is almost
as great as the need for the non-perishable items. With a
cash donation the food bank is able to purchase things like
meat, dairy products, vegetables and fresh fruits.

MP Kevin Sorenson was in Strathmore
sort of unoffcially on Oct. 11. He was
on a break week from parliament and
was invited to stop in to Holy Cross Col-
legiate (HCC) to speak to the Grade 9
class to explain the different aspects of
his role as a member of parliament.
Sorenson said he feels those involved
in public service have a responsibility to
try and increase awareness about what
government is like, what it means to be
a public servant or a member of parlia-
ment, and what it is to represent a con-
stituency.
Its good just to be able to talk about
our country. Even in my presentation
here Im not partisan, its not a con-
servative good, NDP bad sort of thing.
Its about all of us working together to
make a stronger Canada, and a better
Canada, said Sorenson.
Its very exciting for us because in
Grade 9 the frst part of the curriculum
is teaching the kids about the structure
of the federal government, said HCC
social studies teacher Michael Annicchi-
arico.
Weve been talking about how the
branches of government work and
weve been talking about the House of
Commons. So to actually have our own
MP come and talk to the kids is a great
experience for them.
Sorenson spoke on a wide range of
topics, beginning with how he came to
be a member of parliament. He spoke of
the opportunities presented to him, and
the ones that Canada offers in general.
He spoke about how even though Paul
Martin was a member of an opposition
party, they became acquaintances after
Sorenson heard Martin speak about be-
ing Canadian and the importance of it.
Im here to tell you we have the great-
est country in the world, said Sorenson.
He discussed what daily/weekly life
is like for him, and how it has been to
raise a family while fulflling his politi-
cal duties. Sorenson also spoke of the
importance of developing an attitude
of service and how everyone can help
make a difference in their community,
even without sitting on council or a
holding a political position in some way.
I thought it was really good, really
interesting, nice to know he really cares
about us and also our beliefs. I learned
a lot about how making amendments
went back and forth and how they had
to just stay overnight sometimes and
that takes a lot of commitment, said
HCC student Jayde Masciangelo.
I really want to get involved. Ive al-
ways wanted to make a bullying pro-
gram and help people and I just think
that from hearing his speech theres
many different ways you can do it and
its not always about making money,
theres different ways.
It was really cool knowing how
things actually happen and what actu-
ally does go on in (parliament), said
Matt Beemer.

After a long break, the Beaver Scouts have returned to Standard. Jason Semeniuk, Steve DeGroot and
Dustin Larsen are the new Beaver Leaders with a full group of 15 boys and girls coming together two
Wednesdays a month in the basement of Nazareth Lutheran Church. They held their frst meeting last
Wednesday and sorted out the registrations and introduced the children to the motto and program of
Beavers. Keep on the lookout for Beavers coming to your doors in the next couple of weeks as they
are selling popcorn for their annual fundraiser to help them with set up costs for running the program
during the year. For more information call Jason Semeniuk at (403) 644-2291. Layne Desroche. Troy

The Canadian Cancer Society reported a 21%
drop in cancer deaths in men between the years
of 1988 and 2007. For women, the drop was
only 9% mainly due to the fact that women took
longer to cut back on smoking than men.
The classic symbol of the prescription is
the Rx sign. It is from the Latin verb recipere
meaning to take. The symbol is often found
on doctors prescription pads implying the
patient to take this medicine.
The good nutrition that pregnancy requires
should continue during breastfeeding as well. In
fact, eating a bit more (400-500 more calories
per day) is indicated. There is no special diet for
breastfeeding moms but it should include whole
grains, fruits and vegetables and enough water
each daily to keep hydrated. If the urine is too
dark, drink more water.
The number of totally new drugs in the
research pipeline is increasing. These are new
molecular entities, not me too type variations
of medications already on the market. There
is a trend to looking for medicines for rarer,
under-treated diseases like melanoma, lupus and
hepatitis C....good news for sufferers of those
diseases.
One of our goals as your pharmacist is to keep
current on all the new drugs that are coming on
the market. Lifetime learning is a philosophy
we believe in. It helps us be better pharmacists
and be a better healthcare resource for you.

Letters to the editor
To the Editor
In 2000, shortly after the Walkerton out-
break of E.Coli O157:H7, the Canadian Cat-
tle Association (CCA) announced aggressive
measures to reduce or eliminate this patho-
gen in cattle, thus effectively managing the
risk of transferring to other animals, and in
particular, to humans. Ten plus years after
that announcement, consider my surprise,
as CEO of Benchmark Labs, in fnding E.Coli
O157:H7 living well and in great numbers in
Alberta cattle, livestock operations, compost
piles and irrigation canals.
In late 2010, our Lab found E.Coli O157:H7
readily present in an Alberta cattle herd. We
were then informed by a prominent Alberta
veterinarian, of the general presumption
that the majority of cattle in Alberta carry
O157:H7.
As a previous executive of General Elec-
tric (GE), it had been my basic training that
you cannot manage what you do not mea-
sure. As a former Alberta Prosecutor and
Civil Litigation, it was also my opinion that
by not addressing the presence of E.Coli
O157:H7 in cattle populations is akin to
willful blindness, and quite possibly crim-
inal negligence knowing that the likelihood
of passing this pathogen from cattle to hu-
mans.
So Benchmark Labs had a diffcult deci-
sion to make. Do we notify all those govern-
ment agencies who had been tasked with
controlling the presence of E.Coli O157:H7
in our food and water supplies, while also
preserving client confdentiality, or do we
keep quiet. As an Albertan who grew up
with one foot on the ranch and one foot
in the city, I felt it my duty to answer that
question in the positive. However, to my
surprise no government agency: neither
Canada Health, Agriculture Canada, Alberta
Environment, Alberta Agriculture, Canadian
Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), National
Research and Conservation Board, nor local
public or private veterinarians was interest-
ed in our fndings. Rather, it became quite
clear that there was a complete breakdown
in communication between all government
agencies (both Federal and Provincial), as to
how to receive and respond to this type of
information. So given this complete break-
down we were left to ring this bell all on
our own.
In March 2011, we brought this issue
to the lawyers at Canadian Bar Associa-
tion (CBA), hoping then that these lawyers
would then notify their clients of a pending
crisis.
In May 2011, we tested water adjacent to
a handful of sites to determine whether the
cattle manure was getting into those water-
ways. To our surprise, we found high levels
of Total Coliform, Salmonella, and E.Coli.
In August 2011, we expanded water test-
ing to include 55 sites adjacent to irrigation
canal networks. There we found unaccept-
able high levels of pathogens and in Brooks,
Alberta, the presence of E.Coli O157:H7.
In September 2011, we notifed Alberta
Veterinarians of our fnding and then took
this issue to the Alberta Press in order to
raise awareness, before what we predicted
would be a BSE style boarder closure, in-
dustry disaster. A partial list of stories and
articles can be found at http://www.bench-
marklabs.com/index.php/ecolib
In April 2012, we sampled a sub-set of
sites in the triangle between Calgary, Medi-
cine Hat and Lethbridge. We found unac-
ceptable levels of pathogens and E.Coli
O157:H7 that was later reported extensively.
In May 2012, we presented our updated
fndings to the Canadian Bar Association,
as well as provide our predictions as to a
likely outbreak of E.Coli O157:H7 in Alberta
in 2012, and the cost of this outbreak due
to a boarder closure. This presentation was
forwarded to the CFIA, Canadian Cattle As-
sociation (CCA) and Alberta Health Services
(AHS).
In light of ALL our efforts we received
ZERO response . Nor did we observe any
evidence of corrective measures being taken
to control E.Coli O157:H7 in cattle popula-
tions.
It therefore, causes me great concern that
after two years of ringing the bell in Alberta,
Politicians and Associations alike seem sur-
prised to learn that this would happen, and
happen in the way that it did, namely with
the closure of the US Boarder to Alberta
Beef Exports.
Furthermore, watching how agencies and
producers alike have piled on XL Meats is
very unfortunate. As we had shown statisti-
cally, XL could never have been able to man-
age all the animals entering their facility,
contaminated with E.Coli O157:H7. No pro-
cess in the world can ever be good enough
to handle that number of defects coming
into the meat processing system. Were this

an airplane manufacturing facility respon-
sible for building planes, knowing that the
majority of critical parts coming into their
plant were defective, screening out 100 per
cent of those defects would be impossible.
But, that is was what was expected from XL.
XL was left as the last line of defence, to
stop a wave of cattle (up to 5100 per day)
entering their facilities contaminated by
E.Coli O157:H7.
As Albertans lets be honest with each
other:
(1) For the cost of a Tim Hortons Double
Double, the producer could have vaccinated
their cattle and likely avoided this tragedy
completely.
(2) By simply reviewing annual health
data from AHS, any Government Agency
would have realized that Southern Alber-
ta has had the highest incidence of E.Coli
O157:H7 in North America for almost a de-
cade and that something needed to be done.
(3) Had the Federal Minister and the Di-
rector of CFIA enforced the Animal Health
Act to ensure that cattle could not pass
E.Coli O157:H7 to humans, there wouldnt
be the need for a class action laws suite in
Alberta.
(4) Even after all the press coverage, we
brought to bear on this issue no one did
anything to avoid this problem.
As I said before, this is now a simple case
of willful blindness and quite possibly
criminal negligence.
I, as a true Albertan, will certainly look to
those responsible for standing up and mak-
ing good the lost income for XL, its employ-
ees and those businesses who suffered loses
and of course to those made ill. But, never
will I permit this responsibility to be passed
to the taxpayer, to right this incredible and
avoidable wrong!

While XL Foods has reopened, staff layoffs and
licensing restrictions are delaying a return to full
production.
These delays are causing problems for local
producers and suppliers.
The runs were lighter and there is confusion.
The problem, mostly, is we have no direction. The
cattle numbers were building up, said Don Dan-
ard, President of the Stockyards. This time of year
is terrible. People are in the process of wanting to
market their calves. There is a concern in the mar-
ket for both the buyers and the sellers.
The Calgary and Strathmore Stockyards deal
with all the slaughterhouses including XL Foods.
XL Foods takes care of 1/3 of Canadian cattle kill.
The problem of E.Coli O157:H7 continues to be
a danger to food and water supplies.
It may rise up in beef and other food products
at any time.
We are in uncharted territory right now, said
Danard. We are not sure of how we react or what
we do. Lets work our way through this thing, we
have very little direction on this. Alberta beef is
world-renowned and we want to keep it that way,
said Danard.
News sources indicate 50 per cent of Canadi-
an and American beef carry the E.Coli O157:H7
strain in their gut.
Veterinarian Jan Currah of Larrikin Veterinary
Services Ltd. said no one has asked for the vac-
cine. She said it was diffcult to get from her sup-
pliers and wasnt sure if it was due to runs on sup-
plies elsewhere or a limitation in manufacturing
of the vaccine. Delivery specifcations recommend
vaccinating three doses 39 days apart. This may
be why producers dont utilize the vaccine. Those
with large herds fnd the logistics of three vaccina-
tions unworkable.
If the vaccine company simplifed the dose to
a one shot fxes all, farmers might add it to other
vaccination processes and integrate it into the Na-
tional Radio Frequency Identifcation (RFID) tag
program. The E.Coli O157:H7 vaccine kills the vi-
rus that incubates in cow intestines. It costs about
six dollars per animal. Total vaccine programs
works out to about $50 million, compared to $240
million it costs to treat illnesses caused by the vi-
rus annually. www.northumberlandview.ca
Political wrangling over the issue continues to
focus on who is to blame, without direction on
how to keep the food chain safe. Food inspections
wont make the virus go away.
Utilizing the vaccine and providing incentives
would be a good investment for government to
legislate. It would save lives, reduce serious illness
and producers could protect the Alberta cattle in-
dustry from plant shutdowns and protect consum-
er confdence.
Legal ramifcations from those who contracted
the virus havent been raised. Although XL Food
was targeted as the culprit, it could have originally
occurred in the beef and it still is at large. Are cat-
tle producers libel for not vaccinating their cows?
Does it effect water supplies in their vicinity?
The virus can live in soil a year and water for up
to fve months.
Chris Bolton, Chief Executive Offcer for Bench-
mark Labs, found high numbers in irrigation ca-
nal water samples, taken from east of Calgary this
spring, and gave many media warnings prior to
the XL shutdown. Reaction by the government
and producer\suppliers was minimal.
He said the virus isnt dealt with and ramifca-
tions continue
There doesnt seem to be any containment be-
tween the open livestock pens, the dairy barns
and the other facilities, said Bolton. Irrigation
ditches arent expected to be sterile, but this par-
ticular strain of bacteria can be lethal and we need
to be doing more, added Bolton, in an online bul-
letin for The Canadian Food Safety Alliance.
Twelve people across Canada suffer from the
E.Coli traced back to the XL Beef plant. How-
ever, there have been outbreaks in Canada and
the United States since the 1990s, not all involv-
ing beef. Canadas largest was the Walkerton wa-
ter contamination in 2000, with seven deaths and
5000 ill. Victims suffer severe abdominal pain and
bloody diarrhea. Serious symptoms are seizures
or strokes, the need for blood transfusions and
kidney dialysis or permanent kidney damage and
death.
Researchers demand to know why government
still ignores the problem until people get sick. The
regular use of the vaccine would signifcantly de-
crease the disease counts.

Kevin Sorenson, Member of Parliament for
Crowfoot, is alerting local businesses and organi-
zations to consider responding to the Conserva-
tive governments Call for Proposals to help em-
ploy local constituents with disabilities.
Sorenson says, Our top priorities are job cre-
ation, economic growth and long-term prosper-
ity, and we know that employers are looking for
workers. I am proud to announce that our gov-
ernment is helping 1,600 Canadians with disabili-
ties get jobs through the Opportunities Fund pro-
gram.
We are taking action that will help small busi-
ness owners connect willing workers with jobs,
Sorenson continues, this investment through the
Opportunities Fund is designed to provide work
experience to Canadians with disabilities that will
lead to ongoing employment in small or medi-
um-sized enterprises. We even hope to increase
employer awareness of the valuable contribution
people with disabilities can make. We are trying to
ensure that everyone who wants to work has the
opportunityincluding under-represented groups
such as people with disabilities. I hope our local
employers seriously consider this opportunity.
Organizations have until Nov. 16, to apply. Infor-
mation is available at www.servicecanada.gc.ca.

Fule for Thought
One Friday, sitting at BPs (which I believe on
Schooner Night is the Costco of beers!) I got
to thinking of dogs. For the most part, they have
a pretty good life. That is, if they are paired with
the right owner. This thought also came to me as
I was trying to get that urine sample from my dog
behind my house. Following him around saying:
hurry up was bit embarrassing. We used that term
whenever we tried to train Brodie to go some-
where. It worked, but we discovered you really have
to change your choice of words when the family IS
in a hurry! If youre trying to rush your daughter
and use HIS command, it could cause a little ac-
cident! Anyway, as Brodie was both flling his little
vial, AND soaking my hand, I wondered which of us
WAS the master!
When I was a kid, we got our frst dog, Rusty. He
was little orange/white Border Collie/Mutt and he
had an unusual problem. He always chased his tail,
no matter where we were, or what was happening.
Sometimes, hed nip it, and if you were in the splash
zone you got hit with some blood spattering! It
WAS kind of gross! I read an article lately that talked
of dogs actually suffering from Obsessive Compul-
sive Disorder, and that tail chasing, was one of the
symptoms! Nowadays, Rusty mightve had meds, or
a doggy therapist but NOT in 1971! Rusty went
with us on all our adventures and two other dogs
wound up adopting us, as well.
In the early 70s, Canmore was much smaller and
had fewer by-laws for dogs they pretty much ran
free in town! Our cousins had an old Shepherd/Lab
cross who only understood Hungarian. His owner
was my Hungarian uncle, whom you may remember
delivered his whiskey still to my house! Now, when
I say Budri understood Hungarian, I mean Hungar-
ian commands were given to him as well as any
disciplinary words. For example, if my uncle told
Budri that he was a rossz kutya, his ears would
go down and hed bow his head as if in trouble, be-
cause those words translated, mean bad dog.
My pals and I never used Hungarian on Budri,
and that could also be why he liked us all so much!
Budri discovered us later in his life he began to
come over and tag along with us from about 13 to
his last year (16). Every morning, he would howl and
cry to be let off his chain, so he could run across the
street to our place. Then hed join us on whatever
adventure we had. Wed ride bikes to Exshaw, cross
the Bow River in shallow areas, and all the time this
old dog would be happily barking as he trailed us.
Sometimes hed be almost a block behind, and Id
either wait, or double back so he wouldnt be alone.
Somehow in his last year, he broke one of his
back legs. It was such a clean break that it never
seemed to affect him. We mustve been a strange
sight: three or four guys on bikes with three dogs
running along, the third one a block back, with his
hind leg swinging freely as he ran! It WAS a gross
sight, but he was still very happy. I never really
knew what happened to Budri, we were only told
that he had to be put down. We had offered to take
Budri, but that wasnt an option. I was very sad to
lose a good pal, who had gotten a second wind
and found joy hanging out with my friends and our
dogs.
My kids had talked me into getting a dog in 2000.
I had tried a couple of puppies before, but a combi-
nation of allergies and a fear of responsibility, made
me return them. I still regret making my kids cry
over the loss of a puppy, even if we only had him
overnight. And to be honest, I was panicking about
keeping our present dog, too. Im not sure if any of
you have had this happen, where the responsibility
makes you feel overwhelmed? Luckily, Debbie made
me keep him, and now our puppy is almost 13!
This is the time all pet owners dread. We start to
see changes in our pets, and they arent the same.
Brodie has a tougher time on stairs, has to be lift-
ed up onto a couch or bed, and his night vision is
worse. In fact, on one of our hurry ups outside the
gate, he panicked because he couldnt fnd me. He
ran around sniffng and looking. Then when I called
him, he rushed to me, shaking. So the end is not
far off for my best friend. We have to prepare, as he
may have Cushings Disease, and we know he has
another large crystal in his bladder. The saddest part
for me, is that I struggle to enjoy our time together.
Im often sad when I am with our dog. In a sense,
Im already grieving, and I have trouble enjoying the
now of Brodie. Last week my daughter asked that
if we have to put him down, can it be done at home?
She said he shakes at the vet, and he gets scared.
She wants him to be with us, all his toys, and at his
home when it happens. Sometimes things like this
make a parent proud that you have a child who
cares so much about something that depends on us.
Give your dog a pat on the head for me I know
Ill be giving Brodie as many as I can.
Mans best friend

Parliamentary Report
We have all been concerned about the beef re-
call and the strain of E. coli found in meat from XL
Foods Inc. In our Alberta riding and constituen-
cies around us, we are all very proud of our beef
industry. We have built it into a major employer
and a lynch-pin in many of our local economies.
Our government takes the safety of Canadians
seriously and we are fully committed to ensuring
that Canadas food safety system remains one of
the best in the world. Canadas beef is among the
safest in the world. I always argue that the quality
of Alberta beef is second to none.
Canadas robust food safety system is recog-
nized by the Americans and we work in concert
due to the integrated nature of our beef indus-
try in North America. We understand that ranch-
ers, farmers and workers throughout the industry
need a strong processing sector and we all agree
that the success of the industry must be founded
on food safety.
In regard to the recall, the record shows that the
Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), based
on science and timely access to information, be-
gan investigating on Sept. 4 in the best interests of
Canadian consumers. It continues to do that. The
XL plant will not be allowed to re-open until the
President of the CFIA has confrmed, in writing
to Canadas Minister of Agriculture, that it is safe.
Clearly, the job of Canadas Minister of Agricul-
ture is to ensure that we have the capacity, both
from a budgetary process and human resources,
to provide food safety for Canadians. Agriculture
Minister Ritz has remained in constant contact
with the leadership of the CFIA to ensure they
are fulflling these responsibilities. The Minister
personally went to XL Foods Inc. to ensure that
everyone - from the CFIA executive in Ottawa to
the in-depth review team in the facility - under-
stands that the health and safety of Canadians is
the frst priority.
Since 2006, our Conservative government has
provided signifcant funding including over $50
million in Budget 2012 building on the invest-
ment of $100 million in Budget 2011 to improve
Canadas food safety system. We have hired an ad-
ditional 700 net new inspectors, which includes
170 net new meat inspectors.
Protecting consumers health and safety
Our government introduced Bill S-11, the Safe Food for
Canadians Act last spring that will help the Canadian Food
Inspection Agency keep Canadian food safe. The Safe Food
for Canadians Act will further strengthen the beef sector.
S-11 provides mandatory traceability for all farm animals,
including cattle, and traceability for all food when it is pro-
cessed. These provisions will give the CFIA the tools it needs
to respond even faster and more effectively.
As the government, we are calling on the opposition par-
ties in the House of Commons to support the Safe Foods for
Canadians Act so that it can be passed expeditiously in order
to strengthen Canadas food safety system.

A stalemate needs to break between
the Strathmore Rural Fire Association
(SRFA) and the County of Wheatland. A
six-month tug of war leaves the Associ-
ation with only enough money to make
two payments on equipment loans.
The residents in the Strathmore Rural
Fire Rescue Area 2 could lose fre ser-
vice if default happens. Rescue Area 2
is the largest zone in the county. It sur-
rounds the Strathmore town site north,
east and west.
I dont know how the County ex-
pected us to pay for these vehicles. We
are forced into buying these vehicles;
they have a jurisdiction about what
kind of trucks we have to have, said
Lou Delgado, Interim President for the
SRFA. It was no fault of ours that we
fell into this situation.
The SRFA makes payments on the
equipment of $7,200 per month. They
cannot handle these heavy payments.
After an audit this spring, an investiga-
tion discovered the disappearance of
over $100,000 with missing receipts.
The RCMP has charged the past Associ-
ation secretary/treasurer and no money
is expected to be recovered. Delgado
said that the Association does not even
have enough money to sue her. The as-
sociation has been utilizing operating
funds to keep trucks in service.
No matter what the County says, we
are the victims here, said Delgado.
The SFRA members work casinos to
earn money. Due to gaming regula-
tions, little of the money can go against
the loan. No money has come from ex-
ternal money sources approached dur-
ing the stalemate. Yet, SRFA president
Lou Delgado still hopes there are con-
tributors out there that will come to the
rescue with last minute miracle money.
In credit crises, credit councillors en-
courage debtors to talk to their bank
representatives. The banks normally
fag accounts at 30-90 days in arrears.
The bank provides a formal notice and
request that the parties meet to discuss
the situation. There are options offered
such as refnancing, devising ways to
bring the payment down, or deferring
payments or the interest for a limited
time. The bank may review the fle and
ask for a fnancial statement to help the
client gain an understanding of his situ-
ation. The SRFA have not approached
their lending institution.
The County is heavy with demands
for accountability and responsibility,
for funds authorized on behalf of rate-
payers. They want the SRFA to honour
their commitment to 40 per cent of the
loan repayment. The County still holds
$45,000 in reserve from 2012 funding,
which wont be released to the SRFA
until missing receipts are given. Coun-
cillors arent convinced that if the funds
are released, the SRFA wont need on-
going support. As security, the Coun-
ty put liens against the equipment. If
the equipment goes to repossession,
the County would lose money, or they
would pay more to take over the loan.
The County hasnt publically admitted
that some of the situation intensifed.
They originally approved the purchase
of the vehicles. With SRFA consent, they
redistributed fre funds, previously giv-
en to SRFA, to other county fre depart-
ments to keep them operational. They
instituted a new accounting process,
Missing money stalemate
previously not required for funding al-
lotments. To date none of the other fre
associations in the county are experi-
encing problems similar to the SRFA.
There are currently nine fre depart-
ments in the County. Each will eventu-
ally need equipment replacement.
SFRA acknowledges the new ac-
counting requirements did help them
identify they were victims of theft and
it pointed to a fnancial weakness for
the organization. However, they want
council to recognize the integrity of the
other board members dealing with this
issue and the contributions made by
the fre department.
The Strathmore Rural Fire Depart-
ment (SRFD) frefghters are caught in
the middle, left with a festering wound
given them by the theft of funds. If
the County released $45,000, it could
help the SRFD keep the equipment and
scrape through until the 2013 funding
allocations.
We need residents support! These
guys jump into their boots at 2 am in
the morning to go out to calls. The as-
sociation cannot even afford to give
them a small stipend for Christmas,
said Delgado.
The volunteer frefghters used to get
a fat $30 payment for training sessions
or callouts. It is the same whether it is
a two-hour session or an all-night fre
incident. That payment can no longer
occur.
Delgado said the Association could
talk to the bank and perhaps renegoti-
ate the loan, but the missing funds still
leave them behind an eight ball. He
said he thinks the county could take
over the equipment payments, give
them operational money and the asso-
ciation could arrange to make reduced
payments back to the county. The last
resort is to declare the inability to pro-
vide service and have the department
walk out until arbitration can com-
mence and the County negotiates.
The County has not publically indi-
cated how they would provide fre ser-
vices for Area 2 without SFRD equip-
ment, or what actions it will take to
rectify the situation.
Possible arson at rural acreage
On Oct. 15, at 1:13 a.m., Strathmore
RCMP and multiple Fire Departments re-
sponded to a report of a large structure fre
located on a rural property west of Strath-
more. There were numerous outbuildings,
barns and houses located on the property.
The houses on the property are believed to
be vacant and no one was believed to be
injured or killed.
Four barns, one house and some out-
buildings were destroyed due to the fre.
The fre is contained to the single property,
but fre crews were still on scene dealing
with hot spots later that afternoon.
The fre is believed to be suspicious and
Strathmore RCMP are continuing to inves-
tigate with the assistance from Calgary
RCMP General Investigation Section, the
Provincial Fire Investigator and Rocky View
Fire Dept.
RCMP are requesting anyone with infor-
mation regarding this fre to call 403-934-
3968 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Sarah MacDonald and Carter Bauer regaled Li-
ons Club members with stories of their adven-
tures overseas. The Strathmore Lions, under the
Lions International Youth Camp and Exchange,
sponsored the two students.
It was absolutely the best experience of my
life, said MacDonald, who travelled to Germany.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
She lived with a family who have four children.
They had a teen close to her age. They took her
sightseeing to different cultural venues in Swit-
zerland, France, Austria and Greece.
We went skiing in the Swiss Alps. They were
really good skiers, kicked my butt, MacDonald
said.
She said she gained some knowledge of the
language by the end of her fve weeks.
Bauer initially went to Finland. He said he was
intimidated at frst when a massive Viking-like
man greeted him as he got off the plane. They
quickly established a rapport when they discov-
ered they both had a love for hockey. He experi-
enced bike trips, hiking, music jams, shopping in
Helsinki, ocean kayaking, sightseeing and camp-
ing, complete with swims in Nordic lakes. He
brought back some fags and pins for the local
Lions members.
He also went to the international camp where
he met other young people involved in the Lions
exchange program. He says that he still keeps in
touch with them through Facebook
We met kids from Israel, Japan, and France
people from all over. We were all similar and yet
so different, said Bauer. It was amazing. Thanks
and please continue this program.

Boston Pizza (BP) wants to get people in the
community out and having fun, which is just one
reason behind their upcoming comedy night on
Oct. 20. For $25 anyone 18 and older can enjoy
dinner and the show, which features comedians
Nigel Lawrence and Chris Gordon.
Were just kind of trying to bring more people
in, trying to get more people to come into the
lounge and hang out with us, said Shelley Read,
marketing manager for Strathmores BP.
It tends to be like more people are apt to go
to the bars than come to our lounge. We just
thought with the different shows were doing sort
of brings in the more mature crowd even. Its just
another choice.
We just thought comedy would be a little laid
back. We did do the Trailer Park Boys but it was
of course a really young crowd so thats why we
just thought a comedian might cater to a few
more different people.
There are a lot of new fresh ideas coming out
of Boston Pizza that Read has been planning to
get the restaurant more involved in the commu-
nity.
Once a month is sort of what were looking at
as far as in the summer maybe having patio par-
ties once a month. In the winter we want to have
a sort of theme night once a month, for example
this month of course its going to be our Hallow-
een party, said Read.
There will be a pumpkin carving contest and a
spaghetti eating contest in conjunction with the
Halloween party. The party will be on Oct. 30
and will start in the restaurant around 6 p.m.,
and then the lounge stuff will start around 8 p.m.
Read said BPs is a family restaurant and there-
fore they want to make sure they are hosting
events for everyone, not just adult-friendly ones.
There is a new VIP program, employee-of-
the-month program open to all Strathmore busi-
nesses, back-to-school baskets, a possible reading
program in the schools and much, much more.
Anyone who has any questions, or may want
Lionel the BPs mascot to come out can contact
Shelley Read at 403-934-0017.

After Florence (Jeffers) and Alvin Mullen were married on
June 13, 1942, they lived their frst four years together at the
Mullen Farm, before moving to the Jeffers Farm until 1953.
Then, they rented and lived on the David McBean farm, nine
miles north of Gleichen, before eventually purchasing it in
1957, and they farmed here for the next 38.5 years. Both sets
of grandparents originated in Northern Ireland. Before coming
to Canada, Irish immigrants were world-renowned
for raising racehorses, and both of these families
continued this profession after moving to Alberta.
Florence was born in the Gleichen Hospital in
1924, while Alvin was born in Bassano in 1921. Al-
vin had two sisters who befriended Florence and
eventually introduced her to Alvin, while she was
attending the High School Dormitory in Cluny.
Much reference has been given to me in previous
interviews, about students attending Normal School. This was a
school where students entered a teaching career, and Florence
had decided when she was about fve years old that she wanted
to be a teacher! At the beginning of WW2, many male teachers
left to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces, and student teach-
ers were used to fll their places. Florence was now 18 years
old, not yet graduated as a teacher from Normal School, but she
was suddenly uprooted and moved to Peavine School near San-
gudo, Alberta. This school is near Barrhead, and this was where
she started her teaching career, far from family and friends. The
Provincial Government paid teachers $1 per teaching day, but
Florence was excluded from this because she was still classifed
as a student teacher!
That fall she returned to the Cluny Area, and started teaching
at Makepeace School, and got paid.
In the early days, following their marriage, Florence and Al-
vin were part of the Makepeace Orchestra, which played to au-
diences within a 60 mile radius of Makepeace. Florence played
the piano, while Alvin played the banjo, Ed Schaffer played the
drums, and Alvin Sandquist played the saxophone. They were
always in great demand. Florence and Alvins farm included
growing grain, thoroughbred racehorses and purebred Here-
fords. They had two sons, Lorne (Elaine) and Bruce (Verna), as
well as fve grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. After 60
years of marriage, Alvin passed away in 2002 at
the age of 81. Florence and Alvin had no daugh-
ters, but Lorne and Bruce continued their Irish
profession of raising thoroughbred racehorses,
so it fell to Florence to become a barrel racer. She
still has her saddle mounted in the basement of
her home, beside a number of winning trophies.
As an avid curler, Florence has participated in
the Alberta Seniors Winter Games for four years.
She and Alvin served on the Gleichen United Church Board
for 25 years, and Florence was a member of UCW in Gleichen,
then in Strathmore after they retired here in 1990. They both
enjoyed square dancing with Strathmores Wheatland Whirlers
in the late 1980s.
As previously indicated, most of their married lives were
spent on their farm north of Gleichen. This thriving community
of 2,600 was known as Siding #14, following the arrival of the
Canadian Pacifc Railway in mid-July 1883. However the popu-
lation dropped drastically in summer 1963, after Highway 1
was built north of town.
Florence advises the biggest changes she has seen since re-
tiring here in 1990, is the population growth and all the new
stores.

Rosebud Centre of the Arts: past,
present and future
First opening as an alternative high
school, the Rosebud Centre of the Arts
has been operating for 29 years and has
re-defned its image.
LaVerne Erickson and his brother Tim
opened the high school. They found
that the students needed to express
their art so they began to do some out-
door theatre.
After a while, the program blos-
somed and developed, said Executive
Director Adam Furfaro. The brothers
then formed a post-secondary program
for the students, the Rosebud School of
the Arts, which was put in to place by
an act of Parliament.
The school started with amateur plays
and progressed into more a more pro-
fessional variety. When the brothers
realized that many people were com-
ing to Rosebud to see these plays, they
opened up the Rosebud Mercantile to
feed the audiences.
The Mercantile began to produce, es-
sentially, church hall dinners and home-
cooked meals, said Furfaro.
Over the next 29 years, the organiza-
tion developed three different pillars:
the Rosebud Mercantile, which now has
a conference room and a new restau-
rant; the school, which has 30 full time
students and a full time theatre staff;
and the theatre, which is a profession-
al theatre with two stages, the opera
house and the studio stage.
[These three entities] are now called
the Rosebud Centre of Arts, says Fur-
faro.
We now do things like conferences,
retreats, and weddings, and we can host
and feed up to 175 people upstairs and
230 downstairs, in the theatre restau-
rant.
Rosebud also has an art gallery, which
has three large shows and serves as a
learning space for students.
In the summer, Rosebud offers work-
shops and programs in music and art,
and they are preparing a new program
in production for next year.
Furfaro says the biggest change in
these 29 years has been the growth.
When Rosebud frst started, they
were presenting far fewer plays and
there were no resident staff so peo-
ple werent making money off of their
work. There was also no place to eat for
the audience.
They did it out of the goodness of
their heart, and for their love of theatre
and for the love of these kids, said Fur-
faro.
Now Furfaro estimates they have a
full time staff of 24, and a seasonal and
part-time staff of 120. There are resi-
dent actors, teachers, technicians, and
designers.
Weve gone from one show outdoors
to fve that were producing and prob-
ably another six or seven that were pre-
senting, said Furfaro.
While the plays may have changed in
29 years, Morris Ertman, Artistic Direc-
tor, says that he thinks they have a com-
mon thread.
There has always been a tradition
here in Rosebud of delivering a com-
bination of entertainment and thought-
provoking theatre, said Ertman.
As time goes on, the language of
[the plays] changes because we grow
with our audience, Ertman said. Now
theres a seasoned understanding of
how to make plays and present artis-
tic expression, that actually means that
what we do is of very high caliber.
There are about 35,000-40,000 people
coming to see a production, and about
30,000 of them will eat at Rosebud.
Were hoping to expand our audience
in the short-term and the long-term, to
get more people coming to Rosebud for
different reasons, said Ertman.
Ertman wants people to recognize the
varied artistic talents in Rosebud and
wants them to visit again and to expe-
rience the community of Rosebud and
the artistic talent within.
You can come here, stay in a bed
and breakfast owned by the actor who
youre about to see in the evening, said
Furfaro.
We have a very strong, recognizable
connection with our audience, said Ert-
man.
Ertman likens the actors to a band
who works together for many years,
saying that they are people who have
worked together for years who have a
relationship with the audience.
The audience will be able to see their
favorite actors do their frst and then
their fnal performances on the same
stage.
That idea to me is the most striking
thing in the world, says Ertman.
People who come back recognize
each other and interact with each other,
and it feels like youre coming home,
said Furfaro.
Right now Furfaros short-term goals
are to make sure Rosebud is operating
in an effcient and sustainable way.
Other than ticket revenue, Rosebud
needs government funding, sponsor-
ships and private funding to be self-
sustainable.
For the future, Furfaro and Ertman
want to see another theatre space to of-
fer a more acoustic environment.
Were hoping to have new student
initiatives, said Furfaro.
We want to offer programs to high
school students who are interested in a
theatre post-secondary.
Long-term, Furfaro wants Rosebud
to, be a destination where people can
come spend a day enjoying local talent
and relax, experiencing the full effect
of urban meeting rural.
People come here because its
peaceful. Its a piece of rural Canada,
said Furfaro.
That is the theatres biggest asset,
said Furfaro who describes it as a spa
for the soul where you can leave re-
stored.

Shannon LeCLair
Times Reporter
Walt Disney once said if you can dream it, you can
do it. That certainly held true for Strathmore business-
woman Marcy Field. In high school the dream was
born to one day ride her motorcycle across Canada. A
few years ago Field knew she wanted to mark her 60th
birthday in a big way. On August 14 Field strapped on
her leathers, straddled her 2003 Suzuki Volusia 800,
which she calls Suzi, and hit the road.
I started talking when I was in high school about
taking this trip across Canada. Its been surreal to
think that its done; Ive actually done it because I
talked about it for so long. It was great and just really
incredible. I really think that youre given a dream so
that you can fulfll it, said Field.
One of my favourite memories is going through
Massey, Ontario and Im in this little (town) theres
like 3,000 people in this town and one stoplight in the
centre of town. Heres their little strip mall, little park
in the front with a cement bench, the one stoplight. I
pull in and Im stopped and I look, heres these three
old guys on the bench watching the traffc go through
Massey, Ontario. Its a marvelous memory and I was
like oh thats great, just to show it does stop.
As she began her trek there were strong crosswinds
she had to fght through Field said when she was at
the edge of Saskatchewan, there were wind turbines
creating energy.
The thought that came to me was sometimes when
youre wanting to make a change you have to go
against the prevailing winds. You just keep persist-
ing, said Field.
This whole trip came together in about fve-six
weeks. From when I frst started it, it just fell into
place but there were different things that happened. I
booked all my accommodation going across the coun-
try, so I broke that into pieces, like so far that I had
to be each day. Incredibly out of the 12 days I was on
the motorcycle I had one and a half hours of rain that
I rode in, thats it.
In addition to the ride commemorating her 60th
birthday and the fulfllment of a dream, it was also to
raise awareness for girls in need.
Years ago Field met Rachel Starkey. Starkey owns
the Cotton Tales factory in Egypt with her husband.
She had been using cut-off, or factory waste, to make
washable pads and underwear for girls in developing
countries. The garments help make it possible for the
girls to be able to complete their education, instead of
dropping out due to a lack of sanitary supplies.
Transformation Textiles is currently working on
supplying 50,000 Malawi girls with washable pads
and underwear. The girls are also being provided the
materials and the design and are being taught to sew.
Not only are they being given a necessary product,
but also they are being given a skill.
Transformation Textiles is looking to connect
where theres need. So were trying to fnd sustainable
solutions that work in all the different countries. In
some countries because of the quality of water this
may not be the right solution, said Field.
I know there was a lot of awareness raised. Some
people were not aware that for $5 we can make a dif-
ference in a girls life, thats the price of a cup of cof-
fee. Whats wonderful is that they say the kits should
last about fve years. This doesnt solve a problem, it
overcomes one of the barriers for them.
During her 12-day road trip Field met a number of
people, and surprised many of them when they real-
ized she was a woman riding cross-country alone.
I was the only single female rider across. One of
my favourite experiences was once again in Massey,
Ontario. I was in the service station and I came out
and there was an older couple sitting in the vehicle
next to me, theyre looking over at the bike, and then
the husband left and the wife kind of kept looking,
said Field laughing.
So I started a conversation with her and she says
yeah we were just talking about how far the bike had
come and youre a woman. So it was the whole sur-
prise like, and youre a woman. A majority of people I
talked to were always surprised I was a woman travel-
ling by myself.
One thing she learned is it takes a team. She may
have done the ride but she didnt do it alone. The sup-
port she received helped carry her through and every-
one who supported her was there with her in spirit.
Field has made a list of 60 things for 60 that she
would like to accomplish. To date she is more than
half done and she still has until March. Though her
next item isnt as big as riding cross-country, she does
plan to at least begin, and maybe even fnish her book.
Field said she might write about the ride, and about
perceptions as women. The power of a dream pulls at
her; Field said she believes we have dreams so that we
can fulfll them.
As I talk to people and fnd out their dreams its so
exciting to see people that actually actualizing that, its
happening. Im so glad I did it, said Field of fulflling
her own dream.

The UFA Bisons bring in 20 of the
best triple-A midget hockey players
from the drawing area to Strathmore
on a regular basis.
For a couple of players donning the
Bisons silks this fall, the drive to the
arena isnt very far.
Strathmore natives Markson
Bechtold and Connor McCallum are
thrilled with the opportunity to play
for the club they grew up admiring as
youngsters.
Ive waited a couple of years (to put
on the jersey), but its nice to fnally
(make the team) in my third year of
midget, said McCallum. Ever since
I was a little kid, Ive watched them
play, so it was pretty cool to fnally be
the big boys in town. There is a lot of
pressure on us to do good (for) the
town.
According to McCallum, his number
one goal for the year is to help the
team win. A more personal goal for
the gritty playmaker is to get as many
points as he can.
I like to use my size and fnd ways
to get the puck to the net, said Mc-
Callum. I need to fnd ways to put the
puck in the net.
According to Bisons head coach Jer-
emy Friesen, McCallum has the size
and strength to be an infuential mem-
ber of the club.
Connor is a guy that we identifed
early on in our camp, said Friesen.
Hes obviously big and has great size,
(but) with that, he can also skate. With
Conner, the thing that were going
to challenge him on is a confdence
thing. Its not that he doesnt have it
- we need to empower and encour-
age him to realize that he does belong
here and he can be an impact player.
Hes a guy we see as a late bloomer
that has a ton of room to grow were
going to push and demand that out of
him throughout the season.
Hes a player that can play in all
situations he can be a very effective
shutdown player and at the same time,
has the capability to put the puck in
the net and score the big goals when
you need it.
Friesen and the rest of the coaching
staff are also thrilled to have returning-
player Bechtold back in the lineup.
Despite playing with the team last
year, there is still the energy and ex-
citement to be part of the storied fran-
chise.
Its defnitely an honour putting on
that jersey, said Bechtold. Growing
up, I used to always come and watch
the Bisons. Its kind of different the
little kids are watching me play, so its
obviously an honour and a responsi-
bility that come with that.
Despite being one of the last cuts
with the WHLs Spokane Chiefs as a
16-year-old, Bechtold is thrilled to be
back in familiar surroundings.
Its good to be back obviously I
wanted to make my junior team, but
Im happy to be back and it should be
a good year, said Bechtold. I know
the coaches and their expectations for
me and the team. Last year we had a
lot of 17-year-olds and they took a lot
of the workload. This year we dont
have that many (old players), so com-
ing back, I want to be a big player for
us and help the team whatever way I
can.
According to Bechtold, one of the
goals he has set going into the season
is to be one of the top point producers
in the league.
Friesen defnitely sees the potential
for Bechtold to achieve his goals.
He had a solid year for us last year
as a 15-year-old, said Friesen. He
brings a tremendous work ethic. Hes
got a ton of skill that I think is rela-
tively untapped. We look him as a guy
who can step in and fll a leadership
role for us, so we (need him) to be a
leader on and off the ice.
As of right now he is a solid, two-
way player that has a lot of room to
grow on the offensive side of the puck.
Hes a big, strong kid that can usually
get where he wants to go. He has the
ability to be a very special player for
us.

Choice Environment
Poorly made websites can cause website owners
havoc or failure
Free website building software and free hosting
services are almost everywhere online; anyone can
design their own website for next to nothing now
days. This can be a great thing, anyone who wants
a website has the right and the power to create one
for their business, but if you dont know your legal-
ities you could be setting your business or website
up for failure. Also ecause it is so easy to have a
site up and published many people who think
they can build sites are starting to sell websites.
If you are designing your own websites be SURE
to read all agreements and policies to each regis-
tration and account. If you dont, you could be at
risk of Cybersquatting, Billboards, Loss of owner-
ship and more. Know exactly what you are buying
into.
If you are hiring an expert, make sure they are
an expert.
Ask the needed questions to keep your business
or business idea safe and understand the termi-
nologies to give yourself confdence and power.
1. Why is a website an important step for your
business at this moment? Never be pressured to
start a website, they are much more needy than
frst expected. You can always save your website
name without actually starting the website and it
will only cost you $20.00 per year. When fnd-
ing the right registrar make sure to read your fne
print, a bad registrar can ruin your name and do-
main reputation before you even start building.
2. Who will be listed as the owner of your web-
site? What are the steps you will need to follow
if the webmaster becomes detained long term? (I
have advocated many website owners who have
lost their domain; it is very diffcult for anyone to
take over if your webmaster is listed as the owner.)
3. What software will the webmaster use to de-
sign your website? The difference in designing
software changes the marketing expenses later.
There are many templates out there that help web-
masters produce multiple websites per week, but
defnitely not well on the branding of your domain.
IF your content is similar to other websites you
look less authentic and will have a lower search
engine rank. You MUST! Own all graphics on your
website and your webmaster should be creating a
custom site and graphics for you from scratch.
4. Where the best is place to registrar & host your
website? Ask your webmaster why they choose
a particular registrar and host, is it because your
webmaster gets commission? Or because the reg-
istrar does not practice billboard and squatting tac-
tics another huge wrecker for the sites registered
name. Do they know of these tactics? How much
are your server fees? As with anything you should
always get multiple quotes.
5. When will your webmaster begin to market
the websites (Marketing on a website with no opti-
mization is a waist so ask, always know your rank
with the major search engines and do not market
until your rank is past 30+. Webmasters should
have right scripts for accurate search engine rank.
6. How will they market your website? Be sure
to always like your marketing campaign before ap-
proving it and also your webmaster will be able to
track each ad at all times with a database of which
ads need to be renewed at what times. This should
be a mandatory monthly list you receive for your
business records.
7. What is your website address? Also absolutely
most importantly! Your website address should
only be www.(yourbusinessname).com and noth-
ing else! If it says anything before and after it pos-
sibly means you are under another website and not
your ownit is the poorest way to brand develop
and will actually hinder you long term.
8. Will you be using inline frames? In line frames
reduce your visibility and increase marketing cost
long term, if you dont use inline frames your web-
site will be indexed sooner by engines and for free.
Thats the basics and there is so much more to
ask, we hope this keeps you and your business
safer and opens more questions so that when an-
swered it will help empower you as a vendor. If
you decide you want to create your own website
and maintain it yourself try to fnd a good web-
master to confde in and use as a tool & resource,
one that will explain everything to you with con-
fdence. Spending money on a few consultations
could save you big in the end, but really know your
questions and have them prepared for the web-
master, it saves you money and gives the webmas-
ter an opportunity to show you more in less time.

Peter Pan and his partner Linda St-Onge, along
with his daughters Angelina and Diana, are the
new owner operators (since end of July) of the
Standard Hotel and bar renamed Neighborhood
Grill and Bar.
Pan comes with his family from Montreal, Que-
bec, and came earlier in the year checking out
his new prospect and the community of Stan-
dard, including the school
and other amenities in the
area. It has been a bit of
a whirlwind since Pan got
here and he is quickly es-
tablishing himself in the
community with his great
food and friendly demean-
or. An adjustment from the
business of a city to a town
of 400 has been a breath
of fresh air for the couple.
This is Pans frst attempt
at operating a bar, but he
has a vast experience in the
food service industry. Pre-
viously Pan was a chef and
owned restaurants and was
an experienced cooking teacher which is one of
his passions. His restaurants were reported to be
in the Top 100 best restaurants in Canada by food
critic and writer Helen Rochester.
While the previous owners offered mainly pub
fare, Pan continues with items like wings and piz-
za but has incorporated fresh Chinese and Viet-
namese favors by having specials each night of
the week, and is well into introducing Asian Fu-
sion to a revolving menu.
Linda is a delight to all who come into the bar.
With Peter in the kitchen doing what he does
best and her operation of the bar they are having
a huge success in this new journey in the west.
With her sweet French accent and quick wit she
has become a favorite to all who come.
Diana is quickly settling in with her little sis-
ter Angelina. The girls attend Standard School in
Grades 3 and 5. Pan loves the small town atmo-
sphere and community for his girls. After coming
from such a congested area as Montreal, Standard
is sure to be a culture shock, so it is taking a little
more time for the girls to get to know other kids
in the community, but they assuredly said they
are making many new friends. Diana says one of
the biggest differences for her is that there is no
traffc noise from the city
and its quiet here.
Peter and Linda (and the
girls) are looking forward
to getting to know more
and more residents in the
coming months.
A grand opening was
held on Friday, Oct. 12.
Peter and Linda extend-
ed an open invitation to
come and sample some
of the Asian Fusion food
that they prepared as a
treat on them. The evening
was packed during various
times in the night and ev-
eryone enjoyed the local
entertainment by Drew Gregory on stage in the
bar. Everyone was invited including families to
come out and try some samples of their scrump-
tious food. In the near future Pan is planning on
teaching some cooking classes and is looking at
catering for weddings (which he has done previ-
ously down east).
On Saturday Pan catered Croptoberfest, held
in the Standard Community Hall, for 30+ women
who came to Standard to scrapbook for the week-
end, and was able to showcase some of his food
talent, which the women all raved about.

Despite missing some key offensive weapons, the
Wheatland Kings had no problems flling up the
scoresheet against a pair of menacing opponents.
Rookie Rylan Muenchrath led an offensive barrage,
scoring six goals and adding an assist, pacing the
Kings past the Mountainview Colts 8-1 on Oct. 12 and
the High River Flyers 8-5 on Oct. 13 at the Strathmore
Family Centre.
The guys stepped up and battled hard, said Kings
coach Doug Murphy after the home win. We had sev-
en guys out tonight - two with suspensions from last
night - but we have the depth (to overcome injuries)
and we certainly have much more talent (than years
past). Weve got a good core of veterans and some
extremely talented rookies.
Chemistry is starting to build and weve got some
line combinations that are starting to come together.
Murphy acknowledges that a couple of players re-
turning from Junior-A were a gift and helped make
the Kings a serious contender as one of the best teams
in the league.
Despite playing fve of their frst eight games on the
road, the Kings are second in the South Division with
an impressive 5-2-1 record, including 3-0 on home ice.
Its coming together - weve fared well on the road
and now we have to continue that trend at home, said
Murphy. We have a good test coming up against Med-
icine Hat and Blackfalds. That should give us a real
good indication of where were going to be through
the rest of the season.
After losing on the road in Medicine Hat earlier this
season, the Kings are preparing for the rubber-match
on Oct. 20 (8 p.m.) at the Strathmore Family Centre
before hitting the road against the aforementioned
Blackfalds Wranglers.
Were eight games into the season now and were
starting to get comfortable with everything, said
Muenchrath, the Strathmore Times Player of the Game
against High River. Were meshing really good right
now and were going on the right path. Our chemistry
is building, were starting to play at both ends of the
ice and were all having fun. Its like a big family.

Tough weekend
Mario Prusina
Times Editor
After starting the season with one win in
their frst four games, the Wheatland War-
riors have caught fre at the right time.
The local double-A bantam team has
rung off four straight wins, including a
pair this past weekend, to improve to 5-3-
0 on the season.
The Warriors downed the Innisfail Flyers
6-3 on the road Oct. 13, before pounding
the Red Deer Steel Kings 6-0 the following
day at the Strathmore Family Centre.
The team will look to continue their
winning ways this coming weekend when
they host the Taber Golden Suns in Hus-
sar on Oct. 20 (11 a.m.), before traveling
to Cranbrook the following day to take on
the Hornets.
Braves come home
Despite starting the season with a six-
game road trip, the Wheatland Braves are
the hottest team in the SCAHL.
The local peewee double-A team re-
mained undefeated on the season by post-
ing a 9-2 win over Cranbrook on Oct. 13,
before hammering the Badlands Long-
horns 14-0 the following day.
The high-scoring Braves have scored a
whopping 58 goals on the season, as eight
players have registered 10 points or more
so far this campaign.
The Braves are now gearing up for their
home opener Oct. 19 (7:30 p.m.) when
they host the Red Deer TPS at the Strath-
more Family Centre. The Braves will then
host the Lethbridge Giants Oct. 21 (4:15
p.m.) before playing another pair of home
games the following weekend.
chiefs Bite Wolves
The Wheatland Chiefs improved to 3-1-
0 on the season, after posting an 8-3 win
over the Bow Valley Timberwolves on Oct.
12 in Cochrane.
Brandon Russell scored twice and added
an assist to lead the way for the Chiefs,
while Dakoda Hermand and Brooker Pret-
ty Young Man also scored twice in the win.
Kristian Ayoungman recorded a goal and
an assist and Sebastian Wittenburg tallied
once for the Chiefs.
The local double-A midget team will
now play three games in three days, start-
ing with a home game in Hussar on Oct.
19 (7:30 p.m.) against the Okotoks Oilers.
The team will round out the weekend with
a pair of road game in Lacombe and Innis-
fail respectively.
Warriors claw
back into
contention
The Strathmore Spartans peewee football team dropped their second game
in a row, losing 32-8 on the road in Red Deer. The Spartans are back in action
this coming weekend when they host the Red Deer Hornets Oct. 20 (1 p.m.)
at the Strathmore High School feld.

members of Strathmore High Schools Cross Country Running Team will be off to provincials this
weekend, Oct. 20.
Paul SonSteby
SHS Cross Country coach
Strathmore High Schools Cross
Country Running Team is in the midst
of wrapping up another successful
season. Runners have taken part in the
Foothills Divisional Meet and South
Central Zone qualifers, with a few
moving on to provincials.
We had a big team, a good team, and
most especially a dedicated one, said
Coach Paul Sonsteby. Cross Country
is a fall sport, which means its short,
and weather is always an issue. This
proved true at Zones in Canmore on
October 3rd, where the team faced
temperatures hovering around zero
degrees, and a tough mountain course
covered in snow, ice, and mud. The
kids fought through a really tough
run, and to a person, every runner im-
proved his or her time. They set per-
sonal bests for the season on a tough
course. Some improved by as many as
fve minutes.
As a testament to this achievement,
several runners will be going on to
provincials October 20th in Red Deer.
The runners taking part in the provin-
cial championships are Karly Larson
(Jr Girls), Kyle Foster (Jr boys), Janiesa
Boonstopple (Intermediate Girls), Max
Vickers and Keenan Fanning (Senior
Boys).
Im ecstatic because this is the high-
est number weve taken to the big race
since Ive been coaching for SHS, said
Sonsteby. I think its a testament to
the work weve been doing with Kevin
Mertz at Crowther Memorial, groom-
ing runners at a young age and getting
them ready. I mean, this is a world class
athlete we have access to in Kevin, and
what hes been able to do to improve
the abilities of our kids as they pass
through his school is amazing.
Sonsteby and Mertz are interested
in setting up at Cross Country Com-
munity Club to get kids running year-
round, and at all ages, with a possible
fun competition involving elementary,
junior high and high school students
in the future.

Despite the NHL lockout causing
there to be no Calgary Flames hockey
to watch, Strathmore residents still have
the ability to see minor hockey games
at the local rink.
The season for most of the Strathmore
Minor Hockey Associations (SMHA)
teams begins on the weekend of Oct.
19, though the female teams partici-
pated in the tiering tournament held in
Calgary during the weekend of Oct. 5.
The age range for the teams goes from
half-pint to midget, and the teams will
play most of their home games at the
Strathmore Family Centre, Standard
Arena or Hussar Arena
SMHA President Wayne Hansen has
some high hopes for the upcoming sea-
son.
We hope to continue to improve on
a good year last year, he said. All of
our teams were competitive.
Hansen also mentioned that winning
was also a goal for the SMHA.
Everyone wants to win, and we
would like to improve upon the win-
ning of banners from last year.
According to Hansen, registration is
up three per cent from last year, and at
least half of that was from associations
outside of Strathmore not having the
numbers to feld enough teams. He also
said that the aim was to ensure that the
kids were placed on the proper teams.
Registration is closed, and all the
teams have already started practices.
As far as we are concerned, the sea-
son is on, said Hansen.
There is one new thing that has been
implemented from last year. This sea-
son, the SMHA will be holding goalie
clinics, and have hired a goalie consul-
tant to run them. There will be 10-12
sessions this season, and will be held
every second Wednesday.
However, there is one challenge that
Hansen admits the SMHA faces this
season.
The biggest challenge is that we play
in the Central Alberta Hockey League,
and so travel costs are a concern, he
said.
Hansen also said that while the goal
is to keep costs to a minimum, the
amount of travel required for the teams
makes it a challenge to achieve that
aim.

Strathmore Vortex Tween
On Saturday, October 13 the Strath-
more Vortex Tween ringette team
started the season with a real bang
at home. They came out on fre and
stormed the Airdrie Blue team with
Brianna Olson opening up the scoring
with a great play. The rookies rallied
next with Kayley Bingham, Ann Sauve,
and Kaylin Larson all fnding the back
of the net. Brianna added one more to
end the frst half going ahead 5 - 2.
Erin Reynolds seemed larger than life
in the net and made Airdrie work very
hard for every goal they were able to
muster. The Vortex defence stood tall
in front of Erin and made it diffcult for
the Airdire players to get near the net.
Tatum Wathen and Cassidy Hinz snuck
in from defence to add two more goals
and Holland Kelly fnished the scoring
for Strathmore in the last two minutes
defeating their opponents 8 - 5.
On Sunday the girls got to go visit
the other Airdrie Gold team on their
home turf. Again our girls came out
strong and swarmed Airdries net but
were somehow held off the scoreboard
thanks to their goalie standing on her
head. Even though most of the early
part of the game was in their end, Aird-
rie fought back to score frst. Tatum
Wathen demonstrated her leadership
by rallying the troops and tieing things
up. Later she would add another. Af-
ter that there was no looking back as
the Vortex girls controlled the rest of
the game winning 7 - 4. Kaylin Larson
and Holland Kelly also contributed
two goals each and Ashley Lecavalier
also added one for the team. Every two
years this core group of girls comes to-
gether and magic seems to follow - this
year seems to be no different.

THOMAS,
David Ronald
Sept. 26, 1928- Oct.13, 2012
With deep sadness we announce the passing of our
cherished Dad and Granddad, David Ronald Thomas on
October 13, 2012. David spent all of his life on the land
he loved, starting his farming life in Strathmore with
his parents, Frank and Violet Thomas. After moving to
the Langdon farm he met and fell in love with a pretty
little girl, Shirley Warrack. After combining on the
morning of December 1, 1951, David married Shirley
and the spent a blissful 60 years together. While still
farming Dad took up real estate, becoming a rural real
estate agent for JonDor Realty. This gave Dad a real
joy, going out and meeting so many people. David will
be fondly remembered as a gentlemans gentleman.
He would always remember your name and face and
would be willing to help any time he could. Dad also
had a wicked sense of humour that could make you
smile no matter what. David and Shirley had two
loving daughters, Kathy Hochhaus (Steve) and Susan
Collins (Lance); three grandsons, Kory, Travis and Kyle
Collins; and granddog Roxy. He was predeceased
by his wife, Shirley in 2012 and his daughter, Kathy
in 2011. He will be forever remembered by his many
family, friends, and acquaintances as the stylish,
friendly, and always-having-a-smile gentleman. We
will miss you Dad. The family would like to thank
Dr. Sader of Strathmore Hospital, and Dr. Wong of the
Foothills Hospital for their kind care. A Celebration of
Davids life will held on Thursday, October 18 at Lord of
All Lutheran Church, Strathmore at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of
fowers, donations may be made directly to the Alberta
Cancer Foundation (1331 29th St. N.W., Calgary,
T2N 4N2). To send condolences, please visit www.

Despite outplaying their opposition
in a pair of road games, the UFA Bisons
only managed to collect two out of a
possible four points this past weekend.
The local triple-A midget team earned
a 6-4 win over the Calgary Buffaloes on
Oct. 10, before dropping a 4-3 decision
to the Southeast Tigers on Oct. 14 in
Medicine Hat.
Even though they dominated most of
game versus the Tigers, even outshoot-
ing them 23-5 in the second period, the
Bisons allowed a goal late in the game
that cost them a point.
At the end of the day, when you out-
shoot the opposition 48- 26, you should
expect two points, said Bisons head
coach Jeremy Friesen. Its frustrating,
but its the lessons you learn along the
way thats what we stressed with the
guys. We had countless high-quality
scoring chances in the second period.
Games like that, on the road, you need
to fnd a way to get those in.
The other thing it showed us is that
when a team gets great goaltending, it
can shift the tide of the game in a
game they have no business being in.
Mason McCarty, Kurt Fraser and
Markson Bechtold each scored for the
Bisons, while Colby Chartier recorded a
pair of assists in the loss.
The weekend started on a much
brighter note, at the Bisons defeated
the Buffaloes. Matt Forchuk scored
once and added a pair of helpers to
lead the way for the Bisons, while Con-
nor Boyd recorded a pair of assists in
the win.
It was our best, complete game of
the season, said Friesen of the win. We
established ourselves early on in terms
of how we wanted to play the game and
every time they pushed back we raised
the bar. That lasted for 60 minutes it
was really a game closer to a 6-1 or a
6-2 score for us, but we ran into some
penalty trouble and took away momen-
tum from ourselves periodically.
Our work ethic was tremendous and
our execution and attention to detail
were top notch. Lots of positives out of
that game.
After playing their frst six games on
the road, the Bisons will fnally host
their home opener Oct. 20 (5:30 p.m.)
at the Strathmore Family Centre against
the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers. During
that outing, fans will have a chance to
see the new UFA Bisons jersey, while
the team will unveil their community-
oriented third jersey the following day
when they host the United Cycle Maple
Leafs (2 p.m.).
Everybody has a taste for the league
now and thats what we wanted to get
out of this (extended road trip), said
the coach. Were sitting 2-4 and were
not overly concerned about our record.
We know how we are playing the game
and how we want our guys to play. At
the end of the day, we could just as eas-
ily be 5-1 if not 6-0.
According to Friesen, the team is ex-
cited to fnally play at home and hopes
the players can make the Strathmore
Family Centre a tough place for their
opposition.
It should be a place where teams
hate coming into and every time they
do, were going to beat the heck out of
them, said Friesen. Were going to play
60 minutes of hockey the way we know
were capable of.
Thats something were looking to
establish as early as Saturday and carry
into Sunday.
Bisons earn split on the road
Trochu Valley Junior High School hosted the Arena Classic volleyball tournament on October 12 and
13. Both boys and girls were a part of the tournament with teams representing the following communi-
ties, Trochu, Delia, Ponoka, Blackfalds, Didsbury, Standard, Stettler, and Clive. Left: Standard Ram Jr.

Strathmore Junior A Ringette
The Strathmore Junior A Electric Ice
jumped right into their season with two
games over the past weekend.
Saturday, the team played the NW Cal-
gary Kulta. There was no time for frst
game jitters, as the pace was fast and
furious from the opening whistle to the
end. Strathmore played with a quick,
sureness that was surprising, for the
frst game of the season. The Ice was
not able to keep up the intensity for the
entire game and Calgary took advan-
tage of the opportunity. The fnal score
was 4-2 for Calgary. Goals were scored
by Morgan Elder and Gabi LeMoine.
Sunday night the NW Calgary Prime
travelled to Strathmore. The Ice seemed
a little unconnected at frst and Cal-
gary was quick to take advantage. They
scored three quick goals and looked
like they were going to skate away with
an easy victory, but the Strathmore team
dug in and scraped their way back into
the game. It was a fast, scrappy battle
but the girls proved they had what it
takes to play in this league. The Ice
emerged the winners with a hard won
5-4 victory. Payge Dirk and Darcie Weir
each scored twice, while Karly Larson
also tallied for the Ice. Outstanding
goaltending was provided by Brooke
Wally McKenzie.
The Strathmore Electric Ice is con-
sisted of the following players; Brooke
McKenzie, Karly Larson, Gabi LeMoine,
Lauryn Eitzen, Morgan Elder, Hannah
Olson, Payge Dirk, Darcie Weir, Shae
Lane, Katie Edelmann and Meghanne
Uptigrove. Helping out on Saturday was
Meg Warrack.

THOMAS,
David Ronald
Sept. 26, 1928- Oct.13, 2012
With deep sadness we announce the passing of our
cherished Dad and Granddad, David Ronald Thomas on
October 13, 2012. David spent all of his life on the land
he loved, starting his farming life in Strathmore with
his parents, Frank and Violet Thomas. After moving to
the Langdon farm he met and fell in love with a pretty
little girl, Shirley Warrack. After combining on the
morning of December 1, 1951, David married Shirley
and the spent a blissful 60 years together. While still
farming Dad took up real estate, becoming a rural real
estate agent for JonDor Realty. This gave Dad a real
joy, going out and meeting so many people. David will
be fondly remembered as a gentlemans gentleman.
He would always remember your name and face and
would be willing to help any time he could. Dad also
had a wicked sense of humour that could make you
smile no matter what. David and Shirley had two
loving daughters, Kathy Hochhaus (Steve) and Susan
Collins (Lance); three grandsons, Kory, Travis and Kyle
Collins; and granddog Roxy. He was predeceased
by his wife, Shirley in 2012 and his daughter, Kathy
in 2011. He will be forever remembered by his many
family, friends, and acquaintances as the stylish,
friendly, and always-having-a-smile gentleman. We
will miss you Dad. The family would like to thank
Dr. Sader of Strathmore Hospital, and Dr. Wong of the
Foothills Hospital for their kind care. A Celebration of
Davids life will held on Thursday, October 18 at Lord of
All Lutheran Church, Strathmore at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of
fowers, donations may be made directly to the Alberta
Cancer Foundation (1331 29th St. N.W., Calgary,
T2N 4N2). To send condolences, please visit www.
