Bylaws spark debate

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

A pair of bylaws is creating quite the stir in the Town of Strathmore. The reduced speed limit on one of the town’s major roads and the enforcement of an existing bylaw seems to have people divided on the sub- jects. On May 25, Council dis- cussed lowering the speed limit from 80km/hr to 60km/ hr. on East Boundary Road. This item was originally on the agenda for the May 19 meeting, but due to a lengthi- er than normal meeting, it was discussed on May 25. Coun- cilor Bob Sobol felt the speed limit should be lower due to the amount of pedestrian traf- fic using the road, and con- cern was expressed for public safety with an 80km/hr speed limit. Dwight Stanford, Chief Ad- ministrative Officer for the Town stated. “It was felt that the speed limit should be low- er for safety reasons. Council was in favor of reducing the speed because traffic was too fast and it was hard for people pulling out onto the road.” Sobol moved that Coun- cil reduce the speed limit to 60km/hr, and the motion was

unanimously carried. On June 7, the new 60km/hr signs were posted. Council hasn’t discussed it yet, but Stanford predicts there will be discussions in the future with regard to low- ering the speed limit on North Boundary Road.

rV Parking Bylaw Since 1998 a bylaw, which restricts RV’s parking in the front yard of a residence, has been in place. Recently, the Peace Officers have been heavily enforcing the Bylaw. “Some of the Councilors are getting flack on the en- forcement of the Bylaw,” said Dwight Stanford, Chief Ad- ministrative Officer. “People are expected to either store their RV’s at a storage lot, or to park them in their back yards if they have an alley.” Council feels Bylaws should be en- forced, or we shouldn’t have them, so the Peace Officers have been out enforcing them. “While a few people are complaining about the warn- ings and fines, some neigh- bors are happy to see the RV’s being moved out of the way, and we are receiving positive feedback on the enforcement.” Council will be discussing whether the Bylaw needs to be amended in the future.

It’s beginning to look like summer!

Dade Schnick, two-and-a-half-years-old, spent his sunny Saturday at the water park. This was only the second time this year the weather has been nice enough for the kids to come out and play at the park. The temperature made it to 22 degrees and sun worshipers could be seen all over town. Shannon LeClair Photo

Business initiative pushes forward

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

The Business Vitality Initiative, BVI, group met on June 9 to discuss the results of the open house and survey, and discuss further actions. Mike Stolte, the executive director for the Centre of Innovative and En- trepreneurial Leadership, CIEL, came to speak to residents about the results. “It was interesting because it was ex- actly average,” said Stolte. “We presented 12 different actions the community could move forward with. People at the meeting came up with three more.”

There were action teams formed to move the initiatives forward. There is also an advisory committee made up of the four sponsoring orga- nizations, and in the committee, are the Town, Wheatland Business Women, the Chamber of Commerce, and Com- munity Futures Wild Rose. “Strathmore ranked high in opportu- nities and attitudes, proving their can do attitudes can get anything done,” said Jennifer Brooks, Community Fu- tures Wild Rose. “In the roles of market and market- ing and government and organization was where we ranked lowest. And so some of our activities are catered to that.” Out of the 15 actions presented the top three were picked to move forward on. Business friendliness consultations were one of the actions picked. The group wants to increase awareness of local businesses and services so elect- ed officials know the issues and con- cerns of the business community. Downtown beautification is anoth- er. The group wants to make sure the downtown and commercial areas are vibrant and attractive to people. “Kinsmen Park is a jewel of the com- munity and by encouraging people to take advantage of the park we want to lure them into the downtown area, and we want it to be a pleasant experience for them,” said Brooks. The last is trying to figure out wheth- er an economic development officer,

EDO, is needed. “A lot of what came up is trying to coordinate different ventures, and so an EDO would try to provide those sort of linkages. Sometimes an EDO can help to move things along and can also help to bridge different groups,” said Stolte. Stolte will be checking in at six weeks, three months and six months and possibly further along. “I’ll be working through the advisory committee to try to keep projects on the rails, push them along and provide support when needed,” said Stolte. The economic development group is plan- ning to meet and determine some ways to approach elected officials and advo- cate on behalf of an economic devel- opment function. Some of the projects won’t be started until the fall after the municipal election.

Searching for Investment Income?
Explore All Your Options
At many points in your life, you’ll need income from
your investments. Fortunately, you’ve got some good
income-producing investment choices.
You’ll want to consider bonds and Guaranteed
Investment Certificates, or GICs, both of which
provide income in the form of interest payments.
To help reduce volatility caused by interest rate
movements, you may want to build a fixed-income
“ladder” of bonds and GICs of varying maturities.
When market rates are low, your higher-paying
longer-term bonds can work for you. But when
market rates rise, you can cash in your maturing
shorter-term bonds and buy new ones that pay the
higher rates.
You may also want to consider investments with
income guarantees, such as immediate annuities
and segregated funds with guaranteed minimum
withdrawal benefits, or GMWBs.
Other income-producing investments are dividend-
paying stocks, some of which increase their
dividends regularly, offering the potential for rising
income - which you’ll need to stay ahead of inflation.
Keep in mind, though, that companies can reduce
or discontinue dividends at any time without notice.
A professional financial advisor can help you chose
the right mix of income-producing vehicles. Once
you’ve got these investments in place, you’ll be on
track toward achieving the income you need to reach
your goals.

specific situation with your tax advisor and/or legal professional
for information regarding, or issues concerning, the tax
implications of making a particular investment or taking any
other action.

Celebratory supper

The International grad/year-end celebration supper took place in the Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy gym on June 11. It was sort of a special supper for the dormitory students, who came to Strathmore from all over the world to spend a minimum of one year in our high school system. There were ten students’ living in the dorm and attending Strathmore High School, SHS, this year. The students graduated with the rest of the SHS graduating class on June 5. From left- Angelina, Andrew, Alex, Darren and Sheen. Missing from the photo were ‘Big’ Ivan, ‘Medium’ Ivan, Lu, Sreyan and Stephanie.

Trailers won’t be missed

To the Editor I just finished reading Maria’s letter to the editor in which she was upset her trailer could not stay in her driveway all summer. There are way too many trailers parked around town as it is. If she had her way, there would be a trailer/camper in front of every house in town. Two of my neighbors have over 25 foot trailers parked on their front lawn. I too pay taxes and when you turn on my street it looks terrible and they are there all year round. Maybe these people should con- sider the $30 storage fee they are going to have to

pay for these units because none of us want to look

at your RV’s - and yes, I too own a trailer that I gladly

pay storage year round so neither my neighbors or I have to look at these units. Maria even takes a shot at Strathmore not being

a great town to raise children because she does not

want to pay storage. Maybe her neighbors would pitch in to help cover the cost - and if she does move to a different municipality, the trailer will go with her. The residents of Strathmore will miss looking at it. Dean

Strathmore

Eye sore has to go

To the Editor This is in regards to a vacant property in the Green Meadow area of Strathmore, which is a rental prop- erty and the landlord resides in Calgary. Over the past five years the neighbourhood has had to endure end- less noisy parties where RCMP have been called and responded to on multiple occasions during all hours of the night. The outside appearance of the property is really pathetic. There have been two vehicles that have not been moved in approximately five years and neither vehicle has a license plate affixed to it. The run down, destroyed bus that was vandalized and used by the young teenagers as their “Love Bus” has finally been removed three weeks ago. A 50 gallon green drum still sits by the back of the garage filled with smelly debris along with rusty rebar. The weeds are growing wild and the lawn is not cared for and during the winter months, the sidewalks never get cleaned. There is also an illegal suite in the basement which the Town Office is well aware of. The RCMP, as well as the Peace Officers, have been noti- fied of these conditions on many occasions but so far nothing has been done. On July 7, 2009, we called the RCMP at 11p.m. due to excessive noise from the property. The RCMP came and discovered the garage door (side) had been kicked in and two windows in the house had been broken. One of the officers called us back at 12:30 p.m. and stated that they had gone into the house and found it destroyed and tenants were not there. The landlord did not show up until the following Sunday. He boarded up the windows and doors and changed the lock on the front door. I talked to the landlord and was invited into the house with my camera to record the damages. On Monday, July 20, 2009, my wife called and discussed actions that could be taken to have the property cleaned up and told them we had pictures. They requested a copy of the pictures and said they would look into the situation. On Thursday, July 23, 2009, a CD was dropped off to them with the pictures and a business card of the Landlord. Nothing was done!

The Landlord was here last week, June 7, to cut the grass for the first time since last summer. Since last July, nothing has been done to clean up the mess in- side the house that was left behind from the trashing of the residence. My wife sent a letter to the Mayor of Strathmore last October 2009. He advised her that he didn’t like the way the residence was and would ensure that the

Landlord would finish the fence by the end of fall (the previous owner had started over seven years ago). Nothing has been done! It’s really beginning to look like a real eye sore to anyone that drives by the place. All you see is weeds surrounding the place along with garbage along the side of the house. Last October, I had help from two of my neighbours, including my wife and myself and we spent four hours pulling weeds from the side of the garage, both vehicles and right up to the roadway and we filled nine extra large garbage bags of weeds. The landlord thanked us for cleaning up the weeds. Now the place is back to the way it was, when we first started. Did we even accomplish anything? I filed another complaint with the Town Office in early April of this year regarding the pigeons that are nesting in the roof of the unfinished garage. They fly around the neighbours homes leaving their droppings behind, staff at Town Office said that was a health hazard. Nothing has been done! The Bylaw Officers drive around town warning res- idents and ticket home owners that water their lawns on wrong days when there is water restrictions. The other issue that people are complaining about now

is that residents must remove their trailers from their

driveways or they will be fined. I would rather look at a neighbours trailer in their driveway, rather than what I have to look at now. It’s pretty sad when you watch vehicles from the Town of Strathmore drive by this residence during the day. They look, they see and then they leave. That’s all that is being done.

Girl Hit By Car

To the Editor The only surprising thing about this unfortunate in- cident is that it didn’t happen sooner. Centre Street is a residential street, lined by houses and with many cars parked on the street. For some unknown reason, many residents of Strathmore use Centre Street as the main north-south thoroughfare. Why? There are sev- eral alternatives with no houses or parked cars. A number of years ago I wrote to the town discuss-

ing the issue. I suggested making three-way stops at all the intersections on Centre Street. This would dis- courage people from using Centre Street as the main route through town. The town replied that they knew there was a problem but they didn’t know what to do about it. I guess their solution, is to ignore the prob- lem and hope it goes away. Well it didn’t.

Kevin Sorenson returns from successful fact finding mission to Afghanistan

Kevin SorenSon, M.P., Crowfoot Parliamentary Report

Member of Parliament Kevin So- renson is pleased with the results of the recent fact finding mission of the House of Commons Special Committee on Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan. “During the seven day trip, our Committee travelled to Kandahar and Kabul. We saw first-hand the situation facing our troops and aid workers in Afghanistan. We are prepared to study Canada’s role post-2011,” Sorenson says. “As the previous Chair of the Foreign Af- fairs Committee in Ottawa, I have

studied failed states before, but I have never been to one. Movement ‘outside the wire’ of the Kanda- har airfield is immensely danger- ous and almost invariably is done in gun-equipped helicopters and heavily armoured vehicles. “Western politicians driving through Kabul streets still have to wear sixty pounds of body protec- tion in armoured vehicles, driven by heavily armed bodyguards. That is the situation today, but due to selfless dedication of Canadian Armed Forces personnel and Cana- dian police in Afghanistan things are changing, dramatically.” “It was an honour and a privilege to meet dedicated men and women

Running with the…cows

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

Residents of Strathmore had a little excitement come their way on June 9. At approximately 3:45 p.m. RCMP received a call about cows on the loose in town. There were some in Kinsmen Park, on Thomas

Drive, Parklane Drive, and one or two went through downtown. According to RCMP reports, there was a company working in what they thought was an empty field and left a gate open. The cattle belonged to Cattleland feedyards. “We were delivering them to one of our pastures and they got out through a fence,” said a Cattleland

employee. RCMP estimates 10 to 12 cattle were loose. A bull was wandering north of downtown and was finally caught just off Wheatland trail. “Nobody was hurt, no cars hit any,” said Sgt. Kevin Reilly. The following day there was still one cow loose, but it was rounded up fairly quickly.

ATB would like to ThAnk the following individuals and businesses for their gracious donations towards our Annual Teddy For A Toonie Fundraiser for Alberta Children’s hospital. With your help we had a very successful campaign.

Canada Day

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

Town council met to have their final discussion about the Canada Day events on June 9. The firefighters pan- cake breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. and this year they plan to set up a mini carni- val to help keep the adults and kids entertained while they wait. They hope to have a bouncy house and face painters. Kids under six-years-old will eat for free, and for everyone else it will be a flat rate of $3 per plate. Staff from both EPCOR and the rural fire department will be there to help. The fireman’s raffle will be at noon and they are planning to announce the winner at Kinsmen Park, instead of having people sit around the fire hall. This year there are four new citizens being intro- duced and council is hop- ing the singer of O Canada will be able to do an Eng-

lish and French version. Due to recent weather, construction of the am- phitheatre is taking longer than anticipated, and there have been discussions with Calgary Stampede who may lend the Coke stage to the Town for the day. The cake decorating, cake auction and cake cut- ting will be taking place from 12:45 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. At 2 p.m. there will be ca- noe races at Kinsmen Lake. This year council and town administration will have teams participating. Katie Rox, the Keister Family Fiddlers, Pulse, Mullen’s magic and variety show and Hysteria will be set up at different times through-out the day pro- viding entertainment. There will also be the Nightin- gale Karaoke contest in the southwest gazebo with prizes being awarded. The day will end with a bang when the fireworks go off at 11 p.m.

Inaugural scholarship for high school student

shannon leclair Times Reporter

Strathmore High School, SHS, student Lauren Gavey was the first student to be awarded the student of the year schol- arship. Bruce Farms Ltd. decided they wanted to begin a scholarship program at the school. “It’s my dad, he had an inspiration and thought it would be a good idea to do,” said Sonny Warrack. “We laid out the criteria and what we wanted that person to exemplify. The teachers showed us the student of the year criteria and it was pretty much the same,” said Warrack. This was the first time the $5,000 schol- arship had been awarded but from now on it will be given away every year. Bruce

Farms gave the school $100,000, which was then placed in a secure investment to be used to fund the award every year. Students who win the scholarship do not get to cash a cheque right away; there are still further criteria they need to meet. “What’s going to happen is when a kid wins it and they enroll into a post secondary program, they will bring back their transcripts to the school at the end of the year and it will be broken up de- pending on how many years they go to school,” said Warrack. For example if a student registers in a two-year course, then at the end of each year they will re- ceive a cheque for $2,500. In the event that the money in the scholarship fund isn’t enough to keep it going every year, the Bruce Farms is pre- pared to top it up said Warrack.

Wade Klimpke remembers his first customer fondly. “I remember the fellow – the first patient I ever treated out here” smiled Klimpke, the denture specialist and owner of Wheatland Denture Centre. “I was a starving student and I had enough material to make basically one or two sets of teeth. I made them as fast as I could. The fellow came in, paid his bill and I paid my next month’s

“Within three months, I needed a receptionist and within six months I needed a technician, so it was a really good move.” That was over 11 years and nearly 10,000 patients ago. The success of Wheatland Denture Centre led Klimpke to open Denture Esthetics Clinic in Calgary and the recently sold Woodside Denture Centre in Airdrie. What sets these clinics apart from others is their tremendous customer service and ongoing training in the denture business.

knowledge to be able to provide patients with options that are better than

conventional dentures,” said Klimpke. “I’ve travelled all

Canada,

taking courses on some of the new technology that’s out there incorporating

implants.

We have the experience and have treated hundreds, almost thousands of patients with options other than conventional dentures. We’re able to give the patient a wide variety of options.” Despite serving as the current President of the College of Alberta Denturists and holding a position on the College Council, Klimpke said the most satisfying part of his profession is his clients. “That is why it is so rewarding – you take people that have suffered for years – they didn’t know that this technology existed … it’s life changing,” said Klimpke. “People are absolutely thrilled. They have no more pain, they’re not embarrassed, they get their self-confidence back. Helping make Wheatland Denture Centre run smoothly is Klimpke’s loyal staff, including Registered Dental Assistant, Rebecca Tomasir and receptionist Joan Ross. Tomasir joined Klimpke over a year and half ago, while Ross joined the clinic in December, replacing long time receptionist Joan Morey. “It’s really nice, you get to know your patients better,” said Tomasir of the clinic. “We build long term relationships with our clients. You really get to know the people out here. I had a lady the other day bring me a crochet – it’s really neat because the people are unique and more appreciative.” Because of the long term relationships you get to know your clients quite well and he considers them his friends. Therefore, they often ask how his wife Shannon and children Tanner, Darrian and Braydon are doing.

opening the time capsule, which was part of why the parks depart- ment was work- ing extra hard on the presentation of the park. There were 125 flowers, which needed to be replaced, and Linda is not sure if the pine will be replaced.

Alaska bound

shannon leclair Times Reporter

Alaska or bust is the motto two Wyo- ming natives are living by for the next few months. Mike and Sheila Haveman left Ranchester, WY, on April 18, in their horse-drawn chuckwagon and are head- ing to Skagway, Alaska. “We’ve done wagon rides around Wyo- ming and Montana and we have never seen Alaska and we thought what a won- derful way to go about and see it,” said Sheila. The trip had been in the works for about 10 years and this year they fi- nally decided to go, especially now that their youngest son has just graduated. “If we’re going to get it done before we get all them grandkids, cause we have four boys, we better do it now,” said Sheila. They travel about 100 miles a week, roughly 20 to 25 miles a day and they manage five to six miles an hour. Their travelling companions include their two mini Australian shepherds, Blue and Am- ber, and the horses are Jane and Suzie. The wagon is equipped with a generator, a heater, an XM radio, and a queen size bed, and has the look and feel of a small camper. “Mike has a bench up front that he sits

in and reins the horses from inside,” said Sheila. They even have an electric fence, which they put up around the horses when they stop for the night, whether it’s by the river or a ranch. “They usually just find a place where they can turn off, put their fence up and let the horses graze. They just spend the night. The fence has little posts with spikes on the end to go into the ground, when it’s grounded then you could get a little shock,” said Ernie Prosser who first noticed the wagon when it went past his home near Carseland. When he went to talk to them he found out the brakes on the wagon needed repairs and so he helped them find the Strathmore Agricul- tural Grounds and took Mike to Calgary for new parts. Crossing the border wasn’t an issue for the couple either, though they did have to wait a few extra days because of a holiday. “We had the horse papers and our dog papers and stuff. But we didn’t really have any trouble, they were good with us, checked all our paperwork and sent us on our way,” said Sheila. Originally the trip was just an adven- ture for the couple, but a veteran back in Ranchester told them they should have a

mike and Sheila Haveman have decided to trav- el to Alaska by horse drawn wagon. They have always wanted to go and now that their young- est son has graduated they figured this is the best year to do it.

cause. So they are raising money through their website for the veterans. The Have- man’s left Strathmore on June 8, which was the start of their eighth week on the road. “We’ve gone 750 miles from home so far, in seven weeks. We got a bunch of people who want to make it to the Cal- gary Stampede next year, and so we’re trying to get a trail set up for the vet- erans to follow up,” said Mike. So far

they have been in two snowstorms, one in Montana and the other in Taber, but otherwise all has been good so far on their trek. “It’s been quite an adventure so far and we have met a lot of super nice peo- ple,” said Sheila. The wagon is covered in flashing lights and slow signs, and for safety reasons they do not travel at night. They hope to make it to Skagway by ear- ly to mid October.

Recycled treasure

shannon leclair Times Reporter

The Gleichen Communities in Bloom committee made the request to Wheatland county council in April to be able to place a restored welcome sign at the East entrance of town. Council was in favour of allow- ing the sign to go up. Judy Suave found a treasure

in the Gleichen town yard, and took it upon herself to restore it to its original glory. She found the former east entrance wel- come sign. “I brought it in and dried it off, and we started (restoration) about a year ago. It’s a pretty nice sign, its solid cedar, and it was built by the Gleichen town council years ago,” said Suave. “One of the sign posts had

broken and it split the sign in half and then someone must have picked it up and put it in their yard. We spotted it there and thought we should restore that, and recycle.” She then stained it, there was a frame built for it, and then it was glued back together. The sign was put up at the beginning of the month in between Crowfoot and Main Street.

Sacred Heart springs to summer

Sacred Heart Academy held their spring concert in the HCC auditorium June 8. All grades entertained a full house with music and dance. The spring concert marks the coming end of the year and with the students busy writing their PAT’s and tiding their classrooms, you can see the kids excitement for the coming summer break.

Through Avery’s Wish, seven-year-old Avery Ale- man has collected $3,020 to donate to the Chil- dren’s Wish Foundation. On May 5, she cut off two ten-inch ponytails to donate to the Locks of Love. She and her sister Saige are both growing their hair out so they can donate to Locks of Love again in the future.

Avery’s wish

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

Many children want to do something to help others after watching a fam- ily member suffer from an illness but may not make it far. For seven-year-old Avery Aleman though, her thought of helping out others has surpassed the expectations of her parents. Her grandmother, who passed away in November, had been diagnosed with cancer, and after chemo took her hair, she began wearing wigs. “She saw what a difference it made for her grandma and Avery just in her own little wisdom said is there a way I can help? Do kids need hair? We said yes and she said she wanted to donate her hair because she was blessed with lots of hair,” said Christa, Avery’s moth- er. So little Avery continued to grow her hair and when it reached 10 inches she went to Bangles to get her hair cut and donated it to Locks of Love. “She is planning to grow her hair out and do it again,” said Christa.

Her sister Saige is also growing her hair, so she can donate it as well. The Calgary Stampede Queen decid- ed to grant a wish to a little girl who wanted to be a cowgirl for the day, a little girl named Ava, and when Avery and Saige saw it, both of the girls want- ed to do something to help sick kids. “I contacted the Children’s Wish Foundation and they were phenomenal with getting us going and setting up an online link,” said Christia. The fam- ily also set up a Facebook page called Avery’s Wish, and they have heard from people who have received wigs, and wishes from around the community. “It’s been amazing how huge it grew and how many people it has touched.” For the month of June, Sacred Heart Academy is donating all the proceeds from their popsicle, chip and pop sales. “We had an initial goal of $500, and as of May we were at $3,020. I’m sure we’ll be at more by the end of the month,” said Christa. The family plans to keep collecting donations for the Children’s Wish as long as people want them to.

Celebrating victory

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter

This year at the Relay for Life, the number of teams dropped

from 34 last year to 21 this year. There were still 210 participants and though the number of teams dropped, the number of cancer survivors increased from 60 to

68.

“It was a phenomenal turnout, so much more than I expected it’s great. The weather was beau-

tiful,” said Angela Boyd, event chair. Teams dressed up for the Relay, one team was in fa- tigues, and Patti Lynn’s Munch- kins wore green tie-dyed shirts.

The Munchkins also handed out carnations, donated by Diva’s Design Company, to all of the survivors as they walked the sur- vivor’s walk. This year the Dixie Chicks team decided to do a belles and beaus theme for the Relay for Life. This is the fourth year the team has competed and each year they come up with a new theme. The team walked for Di- xie Lavallee, who in 2007 battled breast cancer, and on the day of the relay, June 11, had surgery because it had come back to the same breast in April. “She did well, her attitude has been positive the whole

way,” said Melvyn Lavallee, Di- xie’s husband. There were three generations walking for Dixie, her husband Melvyn, her sons Ryan and Brandon and two of her grandchildren Georgia and Joshua. At 8:30 p.m. four kids had their heads shaved in support of cancer research. Festivities last- ed all night, helping to keep the teams entertained throughout the night. “Lots of people stayed until the end, it was pretty awesome,” said Boyd. The Relay raised approxi- mately $100,000 this year, and despite the drop in team num- bers was still a huge success.

Show and sale a success

shannon leclair Times Reporter

Rockyford hosted a district 4-H show and sale at the Sportsplex on June 12. There were four groups showing off their cattle for judging, and selling them afterwards. Brody Gardener, 23, was the con- firmation judge for the day. Garden- er has been judging since he was nine-years-old and has judged six shows already this year. “It was awesome. It might have been as consistent of a group of steers as I have judged all year in terms of finish,” said Gardener. “I’ve been to a lot of the shows this spring that had a lot of 1,600lb steers and then a lot of 900lb steers, and it was too much of a range in my opinion.” The cattle were clipped and groomed, and some even had their hooves polished. By clipping the an- imal it helps the judge have a better idea of what it might look like un- der the skin. Each cow had a chart showing their name, how much they weigh, and how much they gain on a daily basis. The daily weight gain is charted to help the judges, and buyers see how efficiently the animal converts the feed into beef. “It was a tremendous sale. The sale got a little softer at the end, but the champions sure sold well and the lambs sold well also,” said Gardener. Brother and sister Cody and Tay- lor Isley were the showmanship and grooming judges.

The Spartans went to Okotoks on Wednesday June 9 to play the league fi- nals. Strathmore played the Holy Trinity Academy in the bronze medal game and were defeated 2-1. Due to the

rainy weather, the conditions were not ideal and the field was a mess. “All the goals were weather re- lated, not skill related. The game should have been cancelled but we had no other options other than playing the game,” said as- sistant coach Wes Clark. The Spartans finished the year with six wins and six losses. They finished the league play in fourth, and won the bronze medal

at zones. Out of the 12 games they played the Spar- tans scored 34

goals and had 27 scored against them ending with

a seven goal dif-

ferential. Team captain Ben Skuter was this year’s Most Valuable Player.

RE-CONSTRUCTION

The Town of Strathmore is completing the 2010 Street Improvement Program which will include the re-construction of 3rd Ave from Wheatland Trail to Lakeside Boulevard and 2nd Street from 3rd Ave to 2nd Ave within the Town of Strathmore.

The re-construction will include the removal of asphalt for the entire project and replacement of certain portions of sidewalk, curb and gutter. Utility repair and adjustment will be completed as required in locations identified within the scope of the project. The proposed dates of work are June 21, 2010 to July 27, 2010.

During the phases of construction, sections of the roadway will periodically be closed and clearly identified. The alleys will be utilized for access during these times. Any areas without alley access will have an access route maintained during construction. We ask resi- dents to find alternate routes during this time.

The Town of Strathmore thanks you for your patience during this vital upgrade.
