Following the celebrations of Fridays Canada day, Strathmore will also be celebrating its 100 years of existence, with events ranging from beard growing contests to the dunk water tank at Fire hall, as well as pie baking contests to face painting. The numerous events will begin on Saturday, July 2, all day and continuing on throughout Sunday, July 3. Many of the weekends events will be celebrated on 2nd avenue, commonly known as the main street of Strathmore. Many events are also being held at Kinsmen Park. A particularly important event is being held at the new Heritage Park and the clock that has been constructed on 2nd avenue. It will be unveiled in the Dedication of Clock and Centennial Times Square, on Saturday morning at 11:45 a.m. Michael Ell, the Chairman of the Centennial Committee believes that the park will be the focus and centre of downtown. Despite the events significance, Ell, who has been a resident of Strathmore for 34 years, is more excited about Strathmores centennial as a whole. Strathmore is 100 years old, and in those 100 years, we have gone from a little bit less than 500 people to 12,000, and here we are today celebrating the centennial, said Ell. Another event which Ell believes to hold great significance is the Chautauqua, which is going to be held at Kinsmen Park at the Bandshell and Coca Cola Stage, on Saturday, July 2, at 1 p.m. The event dates back to the 1920s, and is being brought back to life. The Chautauqua was a travelling educational movement, which was presented to the rural folk as a means of entertainment, culture, and information about what was happening in the world. The Chautauqua often included motivational speakers, preachers, musicians and teachers. Once new technologies like television and radio became more accessible, the Chautauqua movement eventually lost popularity. Instead of focusing completely on the past 100 years, the centennial celebrations are also aiming forwards into the future, viewing Strathmore to not be 100 years old, but rather, 100 years young. We have a history, unfortunately we havent kept our history as well as we should, but it means we have an opportunity to be looking toward the future and where we want to be in the next 100 years. How do we want to preserve what we have today for our future residents, I thinks thats really important, said Ell. More information about Canada Day and the Centennials schedule of events, visit Strathmores home site, or see pages 4 & 5.

Year end fun!

Rockyford Rocks Out at annual Christian music festival

Manny EvErEtt Times Contributor One Rock, a Christian music festival, descended on the Village of Rockyford and put on some stellar music performances over the weekend. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary, along with local parish St. Ritas in Rockyford, worked hard at bringing One Rock back to the community after last years inaugural debut. Many volunteers came together to book Christian artists and prepare for celebrating various masses throughout the jam packed weekend agenda. Saturday morning started off with an opening address and welcoming prayer by Father Krystian Golisz, who serves locally at St. Ritas parish. I extend an especially warm welcome to the youth and young adults who have come to participate. For many of you, this will be the foretaste and send off with Bishops blessing to the World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain. said Fr. Golisz. Saturday was a busy day with lots of very impressive entertainers, including such groups as FX of Grace, MashetiMoses, Unity Gain, Fanny Magnificat, Janelle, Michael Chiasson and John Angotti. Every group was great with the crowds really getting involved. There was a stage set up in the rodeo grounds, as well as a stage set up inside St. Ritas church. In the arena there was a trade fair with many different venues geared toward youth and what is available to them for increasing their faith journey. The crowd was a little smaller on Saturday, but the weather was much better than it was on Sunday. Sunday was a more spiritual day with the Stations of the Cross, the mass and then the Eucharistic Procession, all very well attended. The whole weekend was a very inspirational and entertaining, even if the weather didnt cooperate as well as it could have. Two years ago Father Krystian (St. Ritas current Parish Priest) arrived in Rockyford and right away had this vision of hosting a Christian rock concert right in Rockyford. He talked to Bishop Henry in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary and was immediately supported and encouraged to proceed with the planning. An organizational group was formed in the diocese with many participants, and the first One Rock concert weekend was held in Rockyford last summer and was huge success! This year it was a two-day event whereas last year it was only a one-day event. The event was held in June so the youth planning on attending the World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain in August 16-21 could come and get prepared and inspired by One Rock before they continued on there journey. Dorothy Geeraert (a prominent member of the local parish and resident of Rockyford) stated How great for Father Krystian to see his vision become a reality. Geeraert also said that all of us in Rockyford feel very fortunate and proud to have this caliber of event in our town and hope that it continues to be a success.

Eye damage may occur without the use of properly designed eye protection. Make sure that your eyewear creates a light-tight seal around your eyes. By tanning without your eyewear you increase your risk of cataracts, loss of night vision, loss of distinction between colours and even increase your vision loss. UV light penetrates about 2-3 mm into your skin, your eyelids are not 2-4 mm thick, just closing your eyes is not enough.

Saying goodbye after 35 years

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter Its been a long, happy road for Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy, TLCA, Principal Harold Warr, whose time as an educator is about to end. Ive decided to retire. This is my 35th year in education and Ive always had this sort of dream of freedom 55, but Im 56 now, so Ive sort of missed the dream by at least a year, but now Im looking forward to sort of not being a slave to the bell, said Warr. Warr and his wife had come to Strathmore in August three years ago, when the year the school opened. Upon looking at the school, the Warrs saw that it was vacant and were concerned about being able to get everything ready in time for the first school year. They had about two weeks to get everything ready, but Warr said the support from the community, the division and parents helped open the school on time. There were times Warr thought they would have to postpone the opening, and was pleased when they didnt have to. Its been absolutely wonderful ever since then. Mainly because of the kind of support that the school has received, said Warr. The school was able to raise the money for the playground in the first year, something Warr thought would take five years, and get it installed in the second year. We started this year with the major task of (acquiring) active boards, they were the latest tool in a teachers world and we didnt have any, and you know it just happened and now we have active board in each classroom, said Warr. Its been successful and so rewarding to see all of these things unfold that, even though I will miss the school and

the students and the parents, I feel like Im retiring at the right time. A lot of the things that I thought would take a lot longer to accomplish, were accomplished in a short time frame and its just been rewarding to see that happen and to be working with kids who are excellent in so many ways. The kids are already beginning to compete in, and win regional competitions, which he is happy to see that unfold in just three short years, and he said the staff is second to none. Warr said it has really been a joy to work in Strathmore, a town he had never heard of until seeing an ad for a principal in a new Christian school on the educations Canada website. He always dreamt of living in different parts of Canada, so it was easy for him to say yes. The plan now is to explore this part of the country more fully because its been really busy here and we have gone back to Newfoundland in the summer time since we arrived here, the past two summers, said Warr. We havent had a whole lot of time to explore Alberta, and the neighbouring provinces and the states so were going to explore and travel. Definitely next year is going to be a year to take it easy and just sort of plan for the next part of our lives.

Gigantic community garage sale brings in record amount

Manny everett Times Contributor The long anticipated Garage Sale in Standard came off as a huge success on June 25 with many people finding treasures, and in some cases necessities. The Standard Community Hall Board had been collecting items for just over two months from all around the community. People had donated everything imaginable from antiques and collectibles to household items and toys. When the doors opened at noon, a crowd had already gathered to get the best of the pick said Donna SandenNelson, as large items were leaving the Arena. A silent auction area was set up for interested buyers to make bids up until 4 p.m. Many were hovering to keep placing and upping their bids for coveted items such as a secretarys chair, antique dining set, nativity set with crche and the very popular Danish blue figurines as well as framed pictures and antique horse apparel. During the day, one could find themselves getting hungry with all their shopping and were easily satisfied with a variety of pies available at the sale donated by many community folk for the fundraising event. The pie sales certainly contributed to the success of the day. People trickled in all day long at the Arena with many coming back for second and third glances and purchases. Overheard many times was the comment that other peoples discards are treasures for someone else. Marel Clark, one of the sales organizers, said that the day was quite success with lots of people browsing and visiting over pie. The day was just so enjoyable for all who came and all those who volunteered to help with the event. Clark stated that just over $6,100 was made over the day with the sale, antiques and pies.

When disaster strikes

Donella Swan Times Contributor When devastating forest fires swept through Slave Lake, it left its residents without much - some without anything. The outcry for donations was well heard by Albertans and people across Canada, but Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy of Strathmore did something truly remarkable. A clothing drive was held in the gymnasium of TLCA and the response was tremendous. I think it was a disaster that occurred and to see the overwhelming desire of the people of Strathmore and area to help fellow Albertans was truly heart-warming, said Principal of TLCA Harold Warr. The school council, students, and parent volunteers collected the donations made by citizens of Strathmore and surrounding area. It was the great effort of these volunteers that made the clothing drive possible. Coming in on the holiday Monday, Victoria Day on May 23, these volunteers gave up a day off to accept and sort the donations brought in to help Slave Lake. We were pleased with the opportunity to help. I mean you hear of all these disasters all over the world, but this one occurred in our own backyard, said Don

Derraugh, Chair Person of the Parent Council at TLCA. Businesses of Strathmore were of great help in advertising for the clothing drive. We posted notices all over town. Many of the businesses were eager to help, said Derraugh. Many clothing donations were made, but toiletries such as soap, toothpaste, and toothbrushes were given as many residents of Slave Lake were left with nothing, including the bare necessities. We really just cant thank people enough. They really stepped up to the plate to help Slave Lake, said Derraugh. These generous donations are currently being stored because they are eagerly awaiting the green light from Slave Lake. The northern town has been overwhelmed by donations from Alberta and across Canada. Due to the high volume of donations made to Slave Lake, and not enough volunteers to go around, they are just not quite ready to accept the generous donations at this time. The tremendous efforts of the school council, students, and parents of Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy and all the citizens of Strathmore who made donations will help in the rebuilding of Slave Lake and the rebuilding of the lives of its citizens.

Where Quality of Life is A Way of Life

Learning more about our water

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter Water is quickly becoming a rare commodity and its important to teach our youth to conserve in every way they can. Seven Grade 8 classes from Crowther Memorial Junior High, CMJH, approximately 170 students, took part in RiverWatch. This was the second consecutive year the school has sent students. This year unfortunately the water level was too high and we werent able to go on the river, but we did all of the water quality testing before and after the Bonnybrook wastewater treatment plant, and we toured the waste treatment plant, said CMJH Grade 8 teacher Sonja Smart. RiverWatch is a program that sees thousands of Alberta students spend time on their local rivers in a floating laboratory each year. Smart said it fits in with the science unit in Grade 8 about fresh and salt water systems, and will help the students in Grade 9 and 10 classes as well.

Shannon LeClair Photo

The students each paid $20 for the trip, the WID helped out by donating another $20 for each student, and CMJH paid for the bussing. We are very closely tied to the river, and we take our water out of the river, and when these students are interested in whats happening on the river, we wanted to support that, said Erwin Braun, General Manager for the WID about why they support the program. We found out about the program and found that it would support of curricular goals, so we looked into getting sponsorship to go, said Smart. As part of the unit there were five different tests and each test was based on one of the curriculum outcomes for the unit. Instead of writing the test, the students also had the option of taking part in a song-writing contest. Sho Blunderfield was the only student who took the opportunity to write a song. His song relayed a powerful message that he believes everyone should use less water and try to conserve so there will be water for future generations.

Dance students recognized for their hard work

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter Dance can be a tough sport, with many challenges but also with many rewards. This year four Expressions, the Dance Gallery, EDG, students were recognized for their hard work. Neve Raycroft was awarded title of Dancer of the Year and was presented with a $500 scholarship to assist with future dance endeavors. Raycrofts favourite things about dance are the, costumes and going on stage and her Broadway baby costume which she wore for her solo this year was her favourite. She has been dancing since she was three-years-old and loves it just as much now as she did then. Use it towards the summer camps (the summer intensive), said Raycroft about how she plans to spend her scholarship. Dance isnt all fun, and doing bar work is the one thing about dance lessons that she doesnt like, but her favourite styles of dance are, jazz and ballet and musical theatre. Next year Raycroft is excited about her duet with her friend Erin. Alexandra Stewart, 14 was the first runner up and received a $400 scholarship. Three years ago she began dancing. Her sister had joined EDG and Stewart decided to give it a try too. I love dance. My favourite styleIm going to have to say contemporary, said Stewart. I get to meet new people and I just get to have a lot of fun because Im not into other sports. Its just a good way to stay active too. She too plans to use the money she received for the summer dance intensive program. She usually practices five days a week, and though its only been three years she knows she wants to continue with dance in her future. I want to go to a school in New York and keep training once I graduate from here, said Stewart.

Sydni Sundgaard, 7, was the second runner up, winning a $300 dance scholarship. She has been dancing since she was two and a half and her favourite style of dance is jazz, which she loves for the music and the beat, plus the spins and jumps. She admitted to being surprised when she got the scholarship, and plans to keep dancing at this point. Sundgaard likes the competition dances the best, and her jazz duet was her favourite performance this year. These kids work really hard, even when they are just little they work really hard. Sydni works very hard, practicing at home all the time in between, giving up birthday parties once in awhile, said Sydnis mom Sharon Sundgaard. Mercedez Allen, 12, was the third runner up and she also received a scholarship in the amount of $200. I was super excited, said Allen. I do tap, jazz and ballet, and I help out with some hip hop. Her favourite costume was from when they had a jazz number, and the costume was similar to a dress with all sorts of patterns and colours on it. Im hoping to do a duet next year, said Allen about how she plans to use her scholarship. Tap is her favourite style of dance because, I just like the sounds the taps make. They all love dance for different reasons, and were all surprised but happy to hear they had been picked to receive scholarships.

Thought for the week ~

Our flag, our history
The search for a new Canadian Flag started in earnest in 1925 when a committee of the Privy Council began to research possible designs for a national flag. However, the work of the committee was never completed. Later, in 1946, a select parliamentary committee was appointed with a similar mandate, called for submissions and received more than 2,600 designs. Still, the Parliament of Canada was never called upon to formally vote on a design. Early in 1964, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson informed the House of Commons that the government wished to adopt a distinctive national flag. The 1967 centennial celebration of Confederation was, after all, approaching. As a result, a Senate and House of Commons Committee were formed and submissions were called for once again. The exercise captured the imagination of the country. The committee held 46 sittings. It listened to hours of testimony from experts, historians and ordinary citizens. It was flooded by more than 2000 proposed designs. Thousands of Canadians responded with flag designs of their own, using everything from beavers munching on birch trees to the northern lights shining over the Arctic Ocean to represent the country. In October 1964, after eliminating various proposals, the committee was left with three possible designs - a Red Ensign with the fleur-de-lis and the Union Jack, a design incorporating three red maple leaves, and a red flag with a single, stylized red maple leaf on a white square. Mr. Pearson himself preferred a design with three red maple leaves between two blue borders. The names of Mr. John Matheson and Dr. George Stanley are well known in the story of the evolution of a new Canadian flag. Mr. Matheson, an Ontario Member of Parliament, was perhaps one of the strongest supporters of a new flag and played a key advisory role. Dr. Stanley was Dean of Arts at the Royal Military College in Kingston, and brought to the attention of the committee the fact that the Commandants flag at the College - a maple leaf on a red and white ground was quite attractive. The committee eventually decided to recommend the single-leaf design, which was approved by resolution of the House of Commons on December 15, 1964, followed by the Senate on December 17, 1964, and proclaimed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, to take effect on February 15, 1965. The National Flag of Canada, then, came into being - almost 100 years after the Dominion in 1867.

Letters to the editor

Questions regarding the Centennial Celebration

To the Editor Recently the Centennial Committee and/or the Town of Strathmore hired an out-of-town company to launch the fireworks for Strathmores 100 Birthday Celebration. This contract was not published for tender. The vendor advertises in a local paper to launch and sell fireworks, but does not have a business licence to operate in the Town of Strathmore (an out of town business licence). Previously a number of displays by this company have been launched for nonprofit organizations, not requiring a licence under the bylaw but they do require one for any other business within Strathmore including this event. Do they also purchase a permit to launch or are they exempt from that as well. No tender was held for this contract and there are other Licensed Fireworks Display Technicians in Strathmore. As for the plans to produce the most extravagant Fireworks Show ever seen in Strathmore! it should not be too difficult due to the fact that it has been the same company with the strangle hold on all of the events. Just add a sparkler and you have improved substantially. Tax payer money is spent on this event and no paperwork on tenders. Were the Centennial Pins tendered out? Was anything tendered out? Rumour has it that $60,000 was budgeted for this event with tax payers money. A Black Tie Event to be held in the fall for a large fee per ticket means Exclusive and not Inclusive. Hold a Free Event for everyone at the Civic Centre or the Arena to grow together as a Community rather than a Pat Yourself on the Back Event for the Committee and Council. Where does all of the money go and why are there no tenders? Puzzling considering that Council ran on the platform of Transparency and Accountability. Mr. John M. Whieldon Strathmore

Raising awareness for animal cruelty

To the Editor Just recently I was invited to a Facebook page called Animal Cruelty in Delacore/Conrich area. I was shocked and appalled to see the pictures on the page. It is my understanding that this guy is going into peoples personal yards and shooting their pets. As he was quoted saying on one picture of his victim, I shot him because I didnt like his eyes. What gives you the right to do that?!?!?!? I am trying to make the public aware that there is some guy(s) out there that are shooting these family pets for no reason at all! I know that Delacore is 15 to 20 minutes away from us, but stuff like this can/could be happening in our backyards as well! This senseless act has been going on since 1991 according to the pictures on the page. Just recently, a lady had her doberman dog shot and then drug down a gravel road and left in a farmers field. This is a list dating back as far as 1991 (Dates and animals names that have been killed): Lady killed in 1991, Tippy killed in 1992, Cujo killed in 1999, Lak killed March 22, 2010 and Doberman killed June 10, 2011. Yoshi (although not killed, was threatened to a child nonetheless) quote Looks like your parents got me more target practice. There is not a lot of information on the page due to it being a fairly new page, but from my understanding the one family affected by this has had six dogs killed by these individuals and several other families have heard disturbing comments from these people as well. This individual needs to be stopped before someones child accidently gets shot because of this guy. Michelle Helfrich, Strathmore

Potable Watergate scandal in Strathmore?

To the Editor Your potable water recycling (sewage) charge is determined by your potable water meter reading. However, potable water that is used outdoors is not recycled through the sewage system. Therefore, it is inappropriate to charge a recycling fee for potable water used outside. However, there is no other way of metering your sewage other than the intake of potable water. To correct for this, the town applied a procedure to exempt outdoor watering from this inappropriate charge. From May 2004 until September 2010 (seven summers) your utility bill contained the following statement, During the months of May to August inclusive, the Variable Sewer charge is based upon your average potable water usage during the previous eight months. This is logical as it assumes your summer usage will be a combination of indoor and outdoor usage. By billing only your average usage for the preceding eight months the outdoor usage is exempted. It is conservatively estimated that average (not 2010) outdoor usage is 40m3 per year (although the Town has cited 114m3 when it was trying to claim residential irrigation was being heavily subsidized). For the first five summers the variable component of the sewer charge was $0.45/m3, but for the last two summers it increased to $0.63m3. It is now $1.60/m3. The actual bill was not calculated as stated on your bill. There was no recycling exemption for outdoor usage. You were charged a sewer charge for all of your potable water. Based on an average of 40m3/year the overcharge would amount to approximately $387,000 for the full period (seven summers). This is after tax income and does not include interest. This may have seemed like a windfall to council, but it was not. A windfall is an unexpected gain. This was neither an accident nor unexpected, although it may be illegal. However, it was not done for personal monetary gain. Like Nixons Watergate it was more about political gain. The Town administrations response to an individuals request for a refund on his 2010 sewage over charge was simply rebuffed. The town removed the false statement from the utility bill. This resolved the issue of misrepresentation but you are now paying 1.60/m3 sewage charge when you water outside. Perhaps it is time for council to investigate the handling of this issue. Refunding the total amount has several problems, but there are potential solutions that could simultaneously address this and other issues.

What a year for Strathmore music students!

Karly ZinKen Junior High & Senior High Band Teacher SHS and CMJHS music students are finishing up a year filled with great musical experiences. September started with the new Grade 7 band students receiving their instruments for the first time. They participated in a band clinic where professional musicians taught the students about the intricacies of their instrument. The clinic day finished with the Grade 7s able to play five notes! The Grade 7s were faced with the challenges of having 38 students in their class, but they were focused and dedicated and improved by leaps and bounds throughout the year. For a week in October, we hosted Professor Wendy Grasdahl as our artist in residence. Professor Grasdahl worked with each band Grade 7 Band, Grade 8 Band, Grade 9 Band, CMJHS Jazz Band, SHS Concert Band, and SHS Jazz Band. We learned about the importance of good breathing, how to warm up effectively, how to play with expression, how to work together as a group, and how to be accurate players. Throughout the semester the SHS choir had the opportunity to collaborate with Burton Harker, a local voice teacher and music educator. Burton presented the choir with a workshop on the basics of singing technique, and gave the choir a solid foundation to build on. Burton continued to work with the choir as an accompanist and musical consultant. The choir performed a haunting rendition of Bring Him Home from Les Miserables and Sarah McLaughlins I Will Remember You at the SHS Remembrance Day Ceremony. In November, I attended the Alberta Music Conference. This is a unique opportunity for Alberta Music Educators to gather together to listen to internationally renowned speakers and outstanding musical performances which inspire and energize us to take the information home to our students. During this conference Taryll Wiebe, a member of the SHS Concert Band, played with the Alberta Honor Band. Along with hundreds of other band students from around Alberta, Taryll prepared an audition for the band. She was one of the 80 students who were chosen to represent top Alberta band students. WOW! December was the month of Winter Concerts. This first concert of the year allowed students to share the culmination of months of practice. The theme of these concerts was Classical Classics and introduced students and their parents to famous classical music. The CMJHS Winter Concert showcased the amazing accomplishments of the Grade 7 Band and showed the progression of learning throughout Grade 8 and 9. Bugs Bunny would have been proud to hear so many classics featured on Loony Toons! The SHS Winter Concert featured the choir and the concert band. The SHS Winter Concert has a history of being so enjoyable that our vice principals young daughter decided to postpone putting up the Christmas tree to attend! This concert exceeded expectations. The choirs energetic and expressive singing was followed by the concert bands lively playing. The concert featured folk classics such as Loch Lomond, music from Hairspary, the Can Can, and concluded with a combined choir and band presentation of Ode to Joy. December concluded with a Talent Show at SHS and featured performances by the SHS Jazz Band and a number of soloists from the SHS Choir! We have a talented bunch here in Strathmore. February marked the beginning of the Electronic Music class at SHS. Through the Strathmore Public School Music Parents Association, we applied for a Community Initiatives Program Grant through the Alberta government. The SPSMPA was able to supply the music program with 15 MacBook computers! These computers have become an integral part of the Electronic Music class where students experiment with creating, recording and producing their own music. The course included a trip to The Beach Advanced Audio Recording Studio, where students experienced the inner workings of a professional music studio. The SHS Jazz Band performed at the Alberta International Band Festival on Feb. 23. What a time for the band to peak! They pulled together for their best performance of the year thus far. Abby Kaunhoffen joined the band for the performance of Cole Porters Under My Skin and wowed the judges. As well in February Cyrus Fiori, a Grade 9 Band student, participated in the Southern Alberta Honor Band. The Honor Band provides an advanced performance experience for Albertas top Junior High band students. The students have the opportunity to work with top music educators for three days of intensive rehearsals and then perform a concert. Congratulations Cyrus! March was a busy month for band students. The annual Spring Concert and Silent Auction was a fantastic success. Students performed the pieces they were preparing to play at festival. The Silent Auction brought in over $2,500 which goes directly back into the band program! Thank you so much to all of the generous donations from the community. A few days after the Spring Concert, the SHS Concert Band departed for a Banff Band Retreat. In the midst of the beautiful mountain scenery, the band had the opportunity to work with topnotch musicians. The group split up into sections to work with professional music instructors. The instructors were impressed by the high level of maturity and musicianship in our students. After a night out in Banff, the next day was spent with Mr. Brian Uzick from Strathcona Tweedsmuir. Again, Mr. Uzick was extremely impressed by the level of responsiveness in our students. What a great group of kids! April was the month of recruitment. The SHS Band toured to Westmount, Wheatland, Brentwood and Carseland elementary schools demonstrating to the students how awesome band is. This fun program included band requests such as The Simpsons and Hawaii 5.0. These concerts generated a lot of excitement and interest in music and were a great success. The Grade 7 Band also worked hard recruiting students for next year. Each elementary school brought their Grade 6 classes to Crowther for a concert and presentation by the Grade 7 students. The SHS Jazz Band and the CMJHS Jazz Band showed off their stuff at Jazz Night on April 12. This rockin concert featured Latin songs, rock tunes, swing and a little Mowtown. This concert marked the culmination of months of after school rehearsals for the SHS and CMJHS jazz bands. In May, the Grade 8/9 Band and the SHS Concert Band attended the Alberta Band Association Provincial Festival of Bands. Each band is required to play a march, a piece from the festival list, and a lyrical piece. In addition, there is a sight-reading component where students are given a piece of music for the first time. We have five minutes to talk through the piece and then we perform! This year, the adjudicators were very excited to hear our bands play because of the high level of performance. What really amazed the adjudicators was the sight reading; our students are amazing readers! The overall rating for the Grade 8/9 Band was 2 Excellent. This is a major achievement. The overall rating for our SHS Band was 1 Superior. We received a Superior Band Award which is an immense honor. Concert season wrapped up on June 3 with the Concert in the Park. Even though the weather did not cooperate, we had a delicious BBQ and a fun concert. The concert featured student requests such as Van Halens Jump, Star Wars, Edelweiss, and The Pink Panther Meets the Flintstones. The concert concluded with a guest performance from the Rocky Mountain Concert Band an adult concert band based out of Calgary. I have been playing with the band for a few years, and the students really enjoyed hearing their teacher perform! It has been a great year - jam packed with awesome musical experiences. I have enjoyed watching my students grow and develop both individually and as members of the team. I am so lucky to be able to share my love of music with students, and then experience the results. We are looking forward to an exciting time next year and are keyed up for our California trip! I would like to thank the Music Parents Association and the parent volunteers for all of their help this year. It is amazing to have this support and means that our students have access to the best experiences available. Thanks for a great year!

Summer reading fun

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter The Strathmore Municipal Library is getting ready once again for their summer reading program. Children aged two to 11, and teens aged 12 to 17 will have a chance to take part in some of the fun activities being planned. Our goal is just to keep kids reading throughout the summer, having lots of fun, and staying active and safe, said Loralee Lenox, who is running the childrens program. Our theme this year is Splash so everything were going to be doing, will revolve around water, and summer and being outside. The program is set to start July 6 and runs once a week until August 20. Lenox said the program provides the opportunity to keep kids reading and learning, while having fun. There are two teen programs available this year, the teen summer library experience is online and the other teen program is held in the library. The online program will include teens from all across the Marigold Library system. For the online program the teen registered will have to complete a set of challenges to qualify for grand prizes, which include a Kobo Ereader, a Flip ultra HD camcorder, a $150 shopping mall gift card or an 8g IPod Nano. Also within the library we have the program running, and we have special events on Thursdays, said Kaytlynn Fowler, the teen program organizer. The time isnt official yet, but it will be a weekly drop in class. The first one will be a meet and greet on July 7 and following that, the nights are open to suggestion. Fowler said there would possibly be a games night, and a sports night.

Congratulations to all the 2011 Graduates!

Were going to also have a movie versus books night. Im running that along the lines of Harry Potter versus Twilight, said Fowler. She said so many kids will say, oh yeah Ive seen that movie but have never heard of the book. Fowler feels its really important to encourage that love of reading and it helps kids get ready for the next school year because it helps keep their reading level up. Both programs have a lot to offer and tend to be a fun way to spend the summer. The childrens program tends to be very, very busy. We have the 5 to 7 (age group), book up within a day basically. The teen program, it needs a little bit more encouragement but that has also been fairly successful, said Fowler. All of the programs offered are free. To register for the childrens program, or the in library teen program go to the Strathmore Municipal Library, located at 85 Lakeside Blvd. To register for the teen summer library experience, go to http://

Fraser Institute cant measure true educational value

DoneLLa Swan Times Contributor The Fraser Institute report for 2011 did not show the same results for high schools in Strathmore as in previous years. According to the latest report, Strathmore High School scored 5.7 out of 10 and Holy Cross Collegiate scored 6.2 out of 10. The report is an average taken from diploma exam results. The best work [by students] is never measured said Holy Cross Colligate Principal Lavern Evans. He added that diploma exams can be a very stressful time for Grade 12 students; the exams being weighted for 50 per cent of the students final mark. Strathmore High School Associate Principal Kyle Larsen said, I feel the report is a fairly narrow focus. Larsen also felt that it was pretty unfair because schools with fewer students can have a really good report one year, and rank near the bottom the next just depending on the group of kids. Some Calgary schools that have almost 1,000 students per graduating class, so it is more likely to have a more consistent average, as there are more test results being measured. It makes it more difficult for Strathmore High School and Holy Cross Collegiate to compete as there just isnt that many students. Its kind of like comparing apples and oranges in a way, said Larsen. I really feel for the kids. There is a lot riding on one exam and they can have a wonderful semester and do badly on one exam and it really affects their final mark said Evans. Both Evans and Larsen feel the Fraser Institute report is just a small indication of what the students abilities really are. It is what it is. We work together to reach a variety of different learners and the [Fraser Institute] report is a pretty small indicator. There (are) many wonderful things that happen outside the classroom that isnt accounted for said Evans. With Holy Cross Collegiate growing in size each year, as well as Strathmore High School, academics will obviously continue to be a huge priority. I feel that the diploma exams are weighted too heavily [as it is] and the majority are multiple choice and there are other ways to asses when youre reaching a spectrum of learners said Evans. Larsen added that there is enough pressure as it is [for students] and this report doesnt exactly paint an accurate picture.

Brentwood student breaks the reading record

Brentwood elementary School held their annual recognition assembly on June 28. The Grade 6 students were bid farewell as they prepare to head to junior high and many other students were recognized for outstanding achievements. Top photo: every year a piece of art work created by one student in every grade is picked to display in the school. This years lucky artists show their newly framed pieces, which will be hung up, around the school. Bottom photo: As part of the reading program at Brentwood, students collect points for the number of books read. Previously the top reader had earned 600 points, a number the school never thought would be beat. This year Grade 5 student elijah maddox earned 1026 points. He still has one year at Brentwood to go, and there arent enough books left in the school he hasnt read. He loves mysteries and has recently finished the Narnia series. maddox was given a certificate commemorating his achievement, a framed photo collage of memories, and a photo of him will be hung in the library for years to come.

Poker run has record breaking head shave

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter The 12th annual Strathmore Poker Run was once again a success. It began on June 24 at Cooters with a head shave, and some fun. It went really well. Kristopher (Owen), I think he raised $4,300, he broke our record for head shaving, said Whitey, who has been involved with the Poker Run since its inception. The run initially began in 2000 and was organized by Matt Janzen to help benefit the Child Find Alberta Society. Matt Janzenhe passed away from cancer and he was the one that started the run. We decided well well help kids cancer as our main receiever and its been that way ever since, said Whitey. It was in 2003 when the Poker run began donating the money to the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. Its three days of fun, motorcycle riding, and games. Since the Strathmore Poker Run began working with the Kids Cancer Foundation they have raised approximately $96,000 and the goal this year was to break $100,000. Though the final numbers werent in at press time Whitey said they were looking at approximately $22,000 brought in this year, bringing the group well above their goal. On June 25 participants in the Poker Run took a ride throughout the surrounding communities, gathering cards for their poker hand before coming home to see who had the best hand, and heading to the final party and dinner spot just east of Strathmore. We had live auctions and silent auctions, and we raised a pile of money on that. Then Sunday we had game day, which kids were welcome, said Whitey. There was a keg toss, where people would see how far they can throw the keg, barrel races, similar to the ones at a rodeo with horses, just with motorbikes instead. Though the Poker Run is done for another year, the money raised will go along way to helping children and their families cope once a diagnosis has been made. The poker run will be donating its proceeds to kids cancer until kids dont have cancer no more, said Whitey

New education solution comes to Strathmore, Wheatland County

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter Bow Valley College, BVC, is bringing a new academic upgrading program to Strathmore starting this fall with the Real Time Online courses. The Real Time courses offer students access to more of a traditional teaching environment but through technology, said Debbie Scott, BVC Real Time Online Instructor. So they log into a computer and they attend class at exactly the same time as other students attend class. They can communicate with other students, and they can communicate with the teacher all through the technology. The idea is to basically provide opportunities for people to upgrade their high school whether they didnt finish or didnt like their marks, said Scott. She said offering the course this way breaks through a lot of the isolation some home study students used to experience. During the daytime they have a variety of courses available and in the evening they have the Grade 12 level available. If a student wants to just participate in a class they could sign up for one or two classes. Three classes are considered a full course load, which Scott said would be a lot of time on a computer in a day. She said BVC wouldnt stop students from doing three courses in a day, but recommends building up to that point. Everything for the course is sent out through the Internet so students can download the necessary work directly, and then can email or fax their work back. Another real advantage to these real time courses is, everything is recorded, said Scott. So both what they see on the computer, as well as the audio. If they want to go back and go through the material again later they can re-listen to the whole class and have both audio and visual parts of it all repeated. They can slow it down or speed it up, however they feel like. Scott said she thinks a lot of time students would like to study from their home and the advantage of the Real Time Online courses is the students are able to do that while still having access to a real class and a real teacher. She said a lot of students really enjoy having the recording. Scott said a lot of students who are upgrading have had difficulty in school, or English is not their first language and so to be able to participate in the class and then go back later is a huge benefit. There are fall and springs courses available, the semesters are four months long. For more information or to register for Real Time Online courses, visit or call Yvonne Prusak, BVCs Student Liaison Officer at 403-410-1545.

Students awarded for their achievements

Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy celebrated their students during awards day on June 22. Students were recognized for achievements that made them stand out throughout the school year.

Carseland Public Benefit Club

Carseland publiC benefit Club In July 1912 a group of thirtytwo Carseland and district women founded the Carseland Public Benefit Club. Over the years their undertakings were many and varied including helping local families in need, public assistance to local children and flowers for the sick. During the wars they had an extensive program of knitting socks and sweaters, and sending food parcels to the boys overseas. The Carseland PB Club also assisted in the finishing and furnishing of the new Hall, catering and planning, preparing and hosting bridal showers for local brides and bridegrooms. Quote from Trails to the Bow Carseland and Cheadle Chronicles Since 1912 the Carseland Public Benefit Clubs intention has been to augment programs for those in need as well as provide a service to improve community welfare. As a not-for-profit organization, the PB Club exists solely to promote the health, well being, safety, and education of the general population of the Carseland district. For ninety-nine years the PB Club attempts to fill or enhance any void in needed service areas that relate or affect Carseland and its surrounding population. The PB Club is not facility driven, nor sports or agriculturally focused, but has supported a variety of populations within the larger county area (i.e.: seniors, children, maternity, voluntary associations). Historically the PB Club has been for female members only. However this was more due to the fact that the men were either working the land or serving in the armed forces. The division of labor was so much more distinct back then; females predominantly did stitching and cooking. In 1998, open membership was discussed and it was agreed that any community member was welcome to join. There has yet to be a male member. The Carseland Public Benefit Club does have a broad-based membership of ladies living in and around Carseland town-ship. A wide array of events and programs enhanced the community through PB Club efforts. They include: aiding medical treatment programs by furnishing and providing equipment of the maternity room at the Valley General Hospital in Strathmore; providing relief to the poor by semi-annual donations to the Wheatland Food Bank; publishing of Carseland and Cheadle chronicles book Trails By The Bow (1971) and More Trails to the Bow (2007) providing further education opportunities or informational sessions in a variety of topics (i.e. fire safety, health, local history) The membership of the PB Club establishes and provides all program delivery, and all programs benefit the local community and extended county, not the club members self-interest. In April 2012 the Club will celebrate their 100th Anniversary. Because their original undertakings included extensive support to the Red Cross (for example: knitting socks for deployed soldiers, sewing bandages and slings, and maintaining a Prisoner of War Fund) they have chosen a military theme to celebrate their centennial. The Club believes the power of future community success lies within our next generation and, in this theme, has invited the Alberta Army Cadet League to participate in their celebration; showcasing their training, discipline and commitment of youth to building our nation. Feature Decade: 1922 1932 Feature Decade Member: Mrs. Ottille (tilly) Kruse In December, 1910, Mrs. Kruse and her young son travelled from South Dakota to join her husband Theodore. Theodore had come in earlier in July of 1910 and settled just northwest of Carseland via a land seekers ticket. The years that followed were hard work; breaking was done with a onebottom plow and large rocks had to be picked. Mrs. Kruse helped with the cutting of the crops and operating the binder, while Mr. Kruse did the stooking. But the early settlers also knew how to have a good time many house parties, skating parties, dances, card parties and outdoor sports were enjoyed. Mrs. Kruse was a willing worker in the United Church Aid, took an active part in the P.B. Club and worked hard for the Red Cross, knitting socks and sewing badges. She passed away in 1936 but her family continued to reside on the home farm for three generations. World events from this decade: 1923: Womens One Piece Swimming Suit in fashion and accepted to be worn in public. 1926: Gertrude Trudy Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel. 1927: A manual washing machine cost $15.95. For city dwellers who had electricity an electric washing machine cost $79.00. 1929: Over 200,000 people die from the Influenza Epidemic. 1930: First year of the Great Depression; high unemployment caused problems in every area of life. PB Club events from this decade: PB Club membership dues were 25/year. Monthly meetings were held at the homes of members. The host was to serve a maximum of 5 dishes at the meeting, and was fined 50 for violation of this bylaw! The Club appointed a committee to assist in the opening of the new Carseland School. They also financed and served hot lunches for the children at the school. The Club donated annually to the Red Cross and the Calgary Herald Sunshine Fund. In June, 1932 the PB Clubs bank balance was $40.70.

At 1:40 a.m. on March 22 a fire raged through a home at the corner of Briarwood Road and Briarwood Crescent in Strathmore. Four neighbouring homes were evacuated for the safety of the occupants due to the severity of the fire and wind direction. The occupants of the residence where the fire started were not home at the time. A second residence next to the first, was damaged by the fire.

Field school comes to an end for another year

Every week students involved in the archaeological excavation will be submitting their own account as to how things are going. Readers will have an opportunity to follow along as they unearth pieces of history. Ryan Jevons Field school has come to a close. The course was long, sometimes tiring, but incredibly fun and a great experience. I, along with my classmates, became Archaeologists by the end of the field season. We had experience in setting up quads, using the equipment, and using the finest tools to brush the dirt gently off artifacts without destroying them. I myself have found several objects of great interest, such as a core for stone tool production, and my colleagues found other objects of great interest ranging from the stone tools themselves to posts in the ground. I find myself missing the field school already, and I do wish I could have my experience in digging before I move on, but after just the one field season I feel much more confidant and secure as an archaeologist thanks to the knowledge that Dr. Walde imparted to me. The field season was an experience I wouldnt want to miss, and it was a fantastic way to spend the first part of my summer. Gina CaRRoll When you ask a child what do you want to be when you grow up? you arent just asking them a generic questionyou are asking them to tell you their hopes and dreams, asking them not WHAT they want to be, but WHO they want to be. I remember being asked this question plenty of times as a child, and my answer rings as true then as it does now. I want to be an archaeologist. I want to peer into the past and bring people, cultures, and traditions back to life, making my place in the world by making sure the people who laid the foundation for everything we are, arent forgotten. Fortunately for me, the 2011 field school run by Dr. Walde and his T.A Lance Evans has given me the opportunity to live my dream, and the skills to pursue it into the future. The past six weeks have taught me more than I could have ever imagined, and its something I am truly sad to have finished. Luckily for me, I fully intend to take the skills Ive learned out in the field and in the classroom and create my own little niche as a professional archaeologist sometime in the near future. Maybe, just maybe, youll hear from me again. Kaelyn MiChayluK By the time the last week of field school rolled around I didnt want it to end. This has been an incredible experience and definitely affirmed that I am studying the right thing. Once I learned the excavation techniques and became comfortable with them it was exciting to focus simply on uncovering the artifacts and features. From when we started to the end of the dig we had uncovered a large area and it was really something to see the different features appearing. A couple units had very prominent hearth features, which Dr. Walde explained are rare in the shape and prominence of those found at the Cluny site. I would encourage the public to visit Blackfoot Crossing and head down to the Archaeology site when it is field season. Making the connection between the knowledge and displays at the interpretive centre and what is happening at the site is pretty incredible!

Venom takes home the gold

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter The Strathmore Venom bantam B lacrosse team has had a fantastic season, taking everyone by surprise. The kids are playing fantastic. The chemistry between all of them is great and they are really playing to their potential, said coach Stephan Lecavalier. Its very exciting to watch. Theres so much skill on that team its great to be there and see them getting better. June 24 to 26 the team took part in the first round of playoffs. On the 24 it was to determine whether they would be in the A pool or B pool for the finals. The Venom won their first game of the weekend, and lost the second. Sunday it was do or die for the Venom. The team came out of the first period down 4-1, but had a good talk and Lecavalier said the kids werent giving up and they ended up finishing off the game with an 11-5 win, sending them into the gold medal game. They came back really strong, (Im) really proud of their accomplishments it was really nice to see, they were playing really strong. It was really great to see them play at their best like that, said Lecavalier. On June 28 the team headed into the gold medal game. It was an up and down game. We were down by one after the first period, up by two in the second period, then they came back and they ended up tying it and it went into overtime, said Lecavalier. With a 1:28 left on the clock the Knights scored, tying the game. The game went into five minute over-time where the Venom were able to score the game winning goal with two minutes left on the clock. It was a hard fought the battle against the Knights and Im proud of each and every one of my players, said Lecavalier. The team ended the season 11-1-0 and had two shut outs, which is something Lecavalier said he has never seen in lacrosse. He said even when the team lost the one game, they never gave up, they played hard and put their best into the game. He said they have really grown a lot this year and they have been fantastic kids to coach. Theyve grown skill wise, and making sure they play well defensively.

Strathmores first annual family triathlon, Tri-Smore, took place on June 25. Hundreds of participants came out for the day, some coming from as far as Saskatchewan. The event was open to anyone and everyone able to take part in a triathlon, and there were even a few participants who were only a year old.

Tri-Smore a success
Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter Strathmores first family oriented triathlon, Tri-Smore took place on June 25. Brent Blvd was packed with 276 participants who came from Saskatchewan and B.C. and all over Alberta. I didnt know what to expect being the first year, but everybody seemed to be having so much fun, and (there was) such a good vibe in the air. Things went as smoothly as we could have hoped for, it was great, said Niki Johnson, who created and organized the event. Were opening up Strathmores new century actively. Johnson has attended triathlons in other communities that were a family event, and she decided it was something Strathmore should have. It was a busy day with Johnson trying to coordinate and organize a number of things. She had to tell herself once in awhile to take a deep breath and look around, giving herself a chance to take in how well it all came together. I had a great committee, my committee was

absolutely awesome. They were so good to work with, said Johnson. She said there has been positive feedback about how well organized it was, and many people told her they would be back next year. There is a tentative date set for the second annual Tri-Smore, which will be revealed, later. This year there wasnt really any funds left over, but in the future Johnson said they would like to raise enough money to be able to help out with healthy initiatives around town. I see us having proceeds in about three or four years, and then what wed like to do with that is donate it back to promote healthy, active lifestyles, said Johnson. Whether it be helping finish off bikeways and pathways that arent completed yet or possibly an outdoor fitness park, or programming that gets people active.were not there yet so we havent made that decision. Johnson said for next year they would like to get a few more signs, a race results board and a lost and found. She said its just the small things they need to focus on next year, and she feels they covered the big things well this year.

A lot of little ones came out this year so it looks like it will be a great couple of years coming up with some strong players for the surrounding communities.

Standard comes together for a successful Sports Day

Manny EvErEtt Times Contributor Slow-pitch games, a parade, a gigantic garage sale and happy kids filled to the brim with candy is what was seen in Standard on June 24-25. The entire community came together for a fun-filled weekend and it was evident that many hands make for light work as everyone pitched in to do their part in making the weekend a huge success. Slow-pitch games started on Friday night and were played on into Saturday evening at the two ball diamonds north of the village. Teams came from all over to participate in the annual event. The beer tent was open with entertainment from local rising star Drew Gregory at the open mike both nights. The activities started early on Saturday with a pancake breakfast at the Community Hall followed by the annual parade through town. Groups as far as Calgary came to be part of the day. The Maxwell Clan (a Pipe Band) that was formed in 1987 from Don Maxwells family, started with four boys (two drummers and two pipers). The group quickly grew to a whopping 45 members and they travel to different functions throughout the province, said Master Piper Maxwell. The group came attired in their Ancient Duncan tartans with seven members in attendance that day. The parade included local groups such as the Lion and Lionettes, the Standard Co-op, the Library board, the popular Playschool float to name a few. The morning parade wrapped up with the local fire department blowing their sirens and shooting water from the trucks at the gathered crowd up Main Street. Childrens games, face-painting, minigolf and two bouncy houses occupied the littler ones throughout the day at the camp kitchen, while the adults took part in the slow-pitch games whether they participated or were spectators fun was had by all. Many adults also made their way to the Standard/Rosebud Arena for the advertised Gigantic Garage Sale with all proceeds going to the building of the New Community Hall. Another highlight of the day was the dunk tank at the sports grounds where many prominent members of the community came to do their share at raising some more funds for the Hall. Darren Firkus started off the morning with a half hour shift, raising just over $100. Other participants included: Kim Berquist, Steve ONeill, Austin Larsen, Christopher Everett, Nicole Ellis, Grant Christensen, Dustin Larsen, Sean Brindle and Allen Larsen. A total of just over $420 was raised. The day concluded with a roast beef supper at the Community Hall and dance to follow. It was obvious that Standard knows how to throw a great party and come together in their various fundraisers for the betterment of the community.

Charity golf tournament aims to help those in need

Shannon LeCLair Times Reporter The Strathmore Chinook Credit Union has been a major supporter of the Foothills Advocacy in Motion, AIM, Society since they came to town. This year Bill Crawford, branch manager for Chinook Credit Union and Craig McKenzie, program manager with the AIM Society, have paired up to bring a new fundraising event to town. The AIM Society has had sort of an all branch (golf) tournament I invited Bill Crawford last year to attend as one of our guests, said McKenzie. He liked it so much that following last years tournament he called me up and said, Craig heres a proposal for you, Id like to do the same thing for (the) Strathmore branch, and we will be the major sponsor for it. The first annual Chinook Credit Union Charity Golf Tournament in support of the AIM Society will be taking place on July 8. A hundred bucks gets you green fees, a cart, 18 holes of golf, a steak dinner and maybe some prizes, said Crawford. Were looking for prizes. The community has really stepped up well with donations, so weve collected a fair bit of money which is really nice but we dont want to spend a lot of that, or any of that really on prizes. He said they are looking for things like golf shirts, hats, balls and things like that to give away. Crawford said the whole community is behind the program in High River because they have such a high profile, something thats missing here in Strathmore. He is hoping to help raise the profile in Strathmore for the society. There are 50 confirmed players but Crawford said he would like to see 80 to 100 players. While it is a fundraiser there wont be people trying to collect money at every hole. You enter, were going to sell you mulligans at the beginning and then were not going to beat you up again. Well have a silent auction at the end, said Crawford. All of the funds raised at the tournament will be going directly to the Strathmore AIM Society. We utilize the funds we raise to help support the adults that we work with to help find new opportunities and grow the program going forward, said McKenzie. Crawford said he would like to see $10,000 raised but knows that is going to be hard to get. Im thinking somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000 would be more realistic and then in the future years somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000, said Crawford. Clients of the AIM Society will be at the tournament helping out in anyway they can. The AIM Society is a support system for people with disabilities and is there to help each person achieve success no matter what it means to them.
