Town council approves community access card

DEIRDRE MITCHELL-MACLEAN Times Contributor

Following a presentation by Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) direc- tor Linda Bernicki, Strathmore town coun- cil has approved the adoption of a commu- nity access card for Strathmore residents. “The community access card is an op- portunity for low income residents to ac- cess Town of Strathmore programs and services at a reduced cost,” Bernicki told town council during the Sept. 18 meeting. “The access card would be used for drop in, registered or membership programs, but not for facility rentals.” Programs such as swimming lessons, ac- tivities at the sports centre, family centre, any of the youth programs offered at the Youth Hub or FCSS would all be covered under the community access card. “It’s going to be offered on a sliding scale, depending upon income and the number of people in your family,” Bernicki explained. The cards will be valid for one year from the date of approval and they will accept applicants at any time. Currently, the community access card will only be available for programs and services that are funded by the Town of Strathmore, but Bernicki said she hopes other programs and services in town will partner with them in the future. Services such as the Handi-bus and the Strathmore Municipal Library are not yet covered by the community access card. “It’s a great opportunity as a poverty re- duction initiative, to assist people with low income for their mental health and well- ness, and being to actively participate in programs and services they might not oth- erwise participate in,” Bernicki said. The Town of Strathmore also offers an all access pass for individuals and fami- lies. Information is available on the town’s website (www.strathmore.ca).

Strathmore “CHAMP” forms friendships at Warm Amps seminar

JANET KANTERS

Times Editor

For more than 100 years, The War Amps has been making

a difference in the lives of amputees including Colton Shep-

pard, 6, of Strathmore, and Avery MacAdam, 6, of Morinville. Colton, born missing part of both feet, and Avery, a right leg amputee, are members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program. They became friends a few years ago at an annual CHAMP seminar and recently reunited at the 2019 Western Seminar in Edmonton. “The seminars are so important because Colton is able to meet kids who are just like him,” says his mom, Chelsea. “He has formed many friendships and it’s comforting to know that he has people in his life who understand exactly what it’s like to have an amputation.” Colton was born with a rare condition known as Adams- Oliver syndrome which stunts growth in different parts of the body. As a result, Colton was born missing parts of both feet along with an underdeveloped heart. Colton’s orthopedic surgeon put his family in touch with The War Amps when he was born, and he was invited to his first seminar when he was eight months old. Colton had his first open heart surgery at 23 days old and he is slated to have another surgery next year at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton. He will need to have ad- ditional heart surgeries as he grows. CHAMPS has also suggested that Colton have a growth re- duction surgery on one of his legs when he’s 10 or 11 years

of age, with the goal of making it easier for him to run, drive

a car and do other activities. The family will be able to assess

the risks and benefits of this type of surgery by following other amputees undergoing the same surgery. CHAMPS provides financial assistance for artificial limbs and devices, and also provides for various medical related expenses families may incur. At CHAMP seminars, young amputees and their parents learn about the latest in artificial limbs, dealing with teasing and staring, and parenting an amputee child. The seminar is also an opportunity for child amputees and their families to connect and share similar experiences about living with amputation. “Seminars are a powerful experience, as Champs and par- ents learn they are not alone,” says Danita Chisholm, execu-

learn they are not alone,” says Danita Chisholm, execu- Avery MacAdam (l-r) of Morinville and Colton

tive director of the CHAMP Program. “Thanks to the public’s support of the Key Tag and Address Label Service, we are able to bring young amputees like Colton and Avery togeth- er, as well as provide financial assistance for the cost of ar- tificial limbs.”

Strathmore RCMP investigating three youth overdoses

JANET KANTERS

Times Editor

RCMP continue to investigate after three Strathmore youths were taken to hospital last Sunday morning for drug over- doses. At about 9 a.m. on Sept. 22, RCMP responded to an assis- tance call from Strathmore EMS. RCMP arrived at a residence where EMS was working on a male in medical distress. A 16-year-old male youth was transported by ground ambu- lance and then flown by STARS to hospital in critical condi- tion. Investigation revealed the youth had consumed prescrip- tion pills. RCMP learned another 15-year-old male youth was taken

to hospital earlier that morning under the same circumstanc- es. Shortly thereafter it was discovered that a third youth, a 15-year-old male, was also transported to hospital under the same circumstances. All youths had attended the same house party the previous evening and are suspected of ingesting opioids in pill form. As of Wednesday, all three youths remain in hospital in critical condition. The investigation is ongoing and police are asking if you have information about this incident to please call the Strath- more RCMP at 403-934-3535 or call your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.

Strathmore Legion Branch #10 N E W S

Strathmore Legion Branch #10 NEWS

By Irene Knappe. For further information, please call the Legion at 403.934.5119

So, where did August go? Kids are back to school, school zones are in effect once

again, camping is done, Fall is happening on the 24th, and stores have Hallowe’en on their shelves. The cycle of life continues.

You’re not going to believe this, but the current pot for Chase the Ace, played every

Friday from 6 to 8 pm, is now at $5,449.50!! Would that EVER look good in your bank account, wouldn’t it? Or mine. There are 22 playing cards left and it’s bound to go on the 20th, so I’m

sure I will see a few of you at the Legion! Good luck to us all!!!

Our Bingo board has changed the way we play Bingo! Thank goodness for sticky notes

and understanding players. The board didn’t want to light up any of the numbers, so we put a sticky note on the number that came up. Fittings don’t want to fit, cords are frail, some “repair” techs live far away, some in Calgary, parts are wrong. Everything has happened and of course, it’s all time-consuming. Jenny, Sheila and myself have been pulling our hair out, and that’s why I’m semi-bald. No, not really, but we sincerely hope to have it all fixed this week. I wish us all luck, and thanks to the Bingo players for your understanding.

It looks like there will be another Legion Market on Sunday, September 22nd, from 11

am to 3 pm. We are having trouble with calling it a “Kraft” Market, since there are so many

different kinds of tables to peruse. See you there!!!!

We offer post-secondary bursaries to those students who are choosing to continue

their education after high school. The student must be related to a Veteran; son, daughter, grand-son, grand-daughter, great-grandson, great-granddaughter. If there is someone who wishes to go this route, please come to the Legion, ask the bar staff for a bursary application

and complete it. Obtain a transcript of your marks and attach it, write a cover letter as to what your aims are for your future, put it all in an envelope, to the attention of Comrade Don Good, Personal and Confidential, and leave it with the bar staff for their further handling. The bursary is valued at $500 and is paid for by the Poppy Fund.

Chef Pat is still taking care of The Kitchen. Breakfast, lunch or supper, he has it all.

He offers a forever-changing buffet on Friday nights, as well as various events we have at the Legion. If you haven’t already, come in and enjoy his quisine. You’ll be glad you did.

There will be a Legion General Meeting on Tuesday, September 24th, at 7 pm. Yes,

that’s a General Meeting for all the members of the Legion. Please make an attempt to join us.

Remember, The Legion is a destiny. It is a place for you to meet your family and friends.

It’s full of laughter, comradery and friendship and you have a number of people who care very

much what happens to it. Decisions are made; entertainment is arranged; Elections are held. What more is there? Come and see your friends and family and have a great evening and

enjoy! WE MUST NEVER, EVER FORGET OUR VETERANS!!

BBB Tip of the Week:

Hiring an Academic Tutor

With the new school year in full swing, parents are trying to figure out which subjects their children can use a little extra help in.

Hire a qualified tutor with these BBB tips:

Explore all your options. Are you looking for private, in- home tutoring? Or small group lessons? Online step-by-step instruction? Think about how your child learns, and what will be most effective to help them.

• Communicate what you need. Some tutors are better at homework help, some are better at long-term lessons and some are better at quick test preparation. You and the tutor should discuss what each of you expecting, and how can it be achieved.

Discuss price. The price may depend on your child’s age and the difficulty of the subject being taught. Private freelance tutors usually charge less than tutoring centers, so determine the best fit for your budget and your child’s needs.

Local woman nominated for seniors service award

COMMUNITY THERAPY DOGS SOCIETY

Thursday, Sept. 12 was a very spe- cial day for Community Therapy Dogs Society (CTDS) and also a very special lady, Jean Vergouwen.

Vergouwen received a 2019 Minis- ter’s Senior Service Award certificate

of appreciation from Josephine Pon,

Minister of Seniors and Housing, for

her work as a CTDS handler with her

dog, Rain. Vergouwen has been a member of

the Community Therapy Dogs Society

for almost five years and during that

time has made regular weekly visits to

Sagewood Age Care, a seniors’ home

in Strathmore.

Vergouwen and her border collie,

Rain, joined the therapy dog program

in January 2015. At that time, Vergou-

wen had already been a volunteer at Sagewood and was keen to take Rain with her on visits. On entering senior’s homes, many residents have to give up their pets, and for them, leaving that compan- ion can be heart-breaking. Vergouwen and Rain have helped to fill that gap. Their regular visits, both in central lo- cations and also in rooms of bedrid- den residents, can bring absolute joy. “Jean is a wonderful lady who has a significant place within our group and is very deserving of this award of rec- ognition,” said Marilyn King, a direc- tor of CTDS. Vergouwen and Rain have also been regular visitors at Brentwood School and Langdon School where they play an important role in the lives of the children. When endorsing Vergouwen’s nomi- nation for this award, Rina Hempel, recreation therapy manager at AgeC- are Sagewood said, “Jean has made her mark on our community and sur- rounding area. She has visited every week for five years and has a made a tremendous impact on the resident’s lives. The many people who have the pleasure of knowing her have been truly touched by her dedication, kind- ness, and compassionate and giving ways.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Staying in Strathmore

To the Editor With all of the upheaval in recent years due to the downtown core revitalization there is a shining light that can not go without mentioning. On Wednesday, Sept. 18, PJ’s Diner opened its doors at 410 Lakeside Blvd. (location formerly known as Kim’s Café). The launch was supposed to be a soft opening but with word of mouth and Facebook postings, loyal patrons pack the delightful family restaurant continuously. The Burns family previously occupied the Husky Restaurant. Now with the new facility they can spread their wings, settle in and we all can benefit by receiv- ing amazing food at an equally amazing price. Co-owner Mr. John Burns is a world-renowned executive chef and you will instantly recognize this upon your first fork load entering your mouth. His attention to detail is second to none. Along with a

great meal you will be visited by the chef for a brief chat inquiring about the meal and if you enjoyed your stay. Nowhere else in Strathmore does the chef visit you to confirm that everything is well. For all of your catering and dine in experiences, I highly recommend PJ’s Diner. I would like to personally thank the Burns Fam- ily and PJ’s Diner for staying in Strathmore. All too often this calibre of dining is lured away to the big city and we are fortunate to have them. There may be a “greasy spoon” in Strathmore with a cook call- ing themselves a “chef” but this place certainly isn’t it. Congratulations Strathmore for retaining this “fine dining establishment.”

Busy time in MLA riding

LEELA SHARON AHEER Chestermere-Strathmore MLA

Hello Strathmore! I would first like to give a huge shout out to Origin Brewery, Langdon AM, Cheadle Hall, Justice Minister Schweitzer, Cam- rose MLA Jackie Lovely and my amazing staffers (Peter Tindall, Vicki Welsh and Joyce Bazant). We had a fabulous week of town halls, meetings and thank you tours, and it has been such a privilege to see folks attend our meetings and to get such tremendous, thoughtful advice from you on some of the legislation we are working on. We will be having another town hall on Oct. 3 to chat about immigration. The town hall will be held in Lang- don at the Firehouse Grill. Watch my Facebook page for details and we look forward to seeing you there. I would also like to clarify that there have been some very misleading claims about our consulta- tions around police funding so let me clear up some of the inaccuracy. We made a commitment in our platform to consult with municipal leader- ship on the provincial formula for funding police services. At this time as you know, we are in need of officers throughout rural Alberta and fixing this is a key priority. It has been made very clear to us, and not just recently, by municipalities and citizens of Alberta that the funding of police is a priority for them, and they are looking to govern- ment to figure out a better model to help with distribution of costs for policing. This needs to be equitable and transparent. This is not new in- formation as consultations happened in different formats with rural municipalities across Alberta

around 2011. Rural municipalities, districts and Metis settlements are provided policing regardless of population with no direct costs as are towns, villages and hamlets with less than 5,000 people (Carseland, for example). Municipalities over the 5,000 mark are responsible for providing their own policing either through establishing their own police force (think Calgary or Edmonton) or contracting with the RCMP (think Chestermere and Strathmore). Right now, most Albertans pay some share of the policing costs in their taxes at the municipal level. We are one of the only prov- inces that subsidizes policing for rural communi- ties at such a high level. This is why we must have meetings with rural communities to understand what a new funding model would look like, so we are just getting started by doing our consultations and public engagements. Our first responsibility and our duty is to pro- tect Albertans. Rural crime in some of our areas has risen dramatically, especially in break and en- ters. We need to address this as soon as possible, and we need to review what is working and what is not. We need to invest in more police services and enhance public safety. When the model for funding is completed, after consultations, the dol- lars collected from municipalities will be reinvest- ed in policing on the frontline. This is an increase to funding for policing. We are honoured to have had the opportunity to speak with constituents about this and to have received such fantastic feedback. As always, we love to hear from you. (Leela Sharon Aheer is the MLA Elect for Ches- termere-Strathmore, Minister of Status of Women and Minister of Culture and Multiculturalism)

In April 2019, she signed with Broken Bow Records and hopes to release her new al- bum in early 2020. Other career highlights include a second-place fin- ish in the 2016 Project Wild artist development program, having her song ‘I Can Make You Happy’ featured in sea- son 8 of Heartland, opening for Josh Ritter, and singing onstage at the Saddledome with The Dungarees.

HEALTH ADVICE Gord Morck Pharmacist Capsule Comments Everyone’s familiar with people with a Type A personality.

Everyone’s familiar with people with a Type A personality. They are aggressive, competitive, impatient and always striving for perfection. There is also a Type D personality….”D” for distressed. Those in this group tend to be anxious, lonely with possible trauma in their background. This personality type often experience cardiac problems due to continuously repressing their feelings. Receiving a diagnosis of cancer is heartbreaking. Cancer treatment has made great strides during the past 30 years and is the best path to pursue. However, there are many costly alternative therapies out there that are totally ineffective. Be aware of ads for “cures” like caesium chloride, herbal remedies, laetrile, essential oils, alkaline diets and ozone. These do not have any effect on cancer and fall into the category of “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. However, there are some alternative treatments that can be used while on conventional therapy. These therapies don’t cure cancer but they can help with the stress, pain, anxiety and fatigue of a cancer diagnosis. These therapies include acupuncture, massage, mediation, relaxation techniques, tai chi and yoga. Don’t brush your teeth too hard. Use a soft toothbrush in a circular motion and make sure you work on the area between the teeth and the gum line. It’s important to get rid of the plaque, the whitish sticky material that causes decay and if left to build up, can become tartar which can’t be brushed off. This change can happen in as little as a week. So make good oral hygiene part of your daily routine.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the

breast and has proven to be the most ef- fective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.

Young people in Strathmore can be found doing creative business at the Strathmore Farmers Market. These junior vendors are under the age of 18 who get to experience their community from a business perspective. They learn customer service skills as well as how to keep

a positive attitude during the three-and-a-half-hour market. One young person involved in the Strathmore Farmers

Market this year is Katherine Gartner, aged 13. In her sec- ond year at the market, she sells homemade beaded charms, bracelets and animals.

“I like how everyone comes out and usually it is a lot of

people who do. People come out even if it is hot or cold,”

said Gartner. “I liked the experience of just being part of the market. You have to work with the people and put them first and sell things that people want. You get to learn and see what the people go to and that tells you what they want.” Gartner is also part of the local air cadets squadron. She enjoys arts and crafts, woodworking and range shooting. Another junior vendor in the farmers market is Florence Kalia, aged 14. This is her first year at the market.

“I enjoy the farmers market because I get to see and in-

teract with many of the local people,” she noted. “I also get

a chance to learn and grow as a vendor. It is great to see a

lot of people come out and look at all of my items and other people’s local products.” Kalia currently sells duct tape rose pens, earrings, brace- lets, bow ties and loom bracelets. Her hobbies are writing, playing badminton, basketball and participating in biathlon. Florence is also part of the local air cadets squadron. The Strathmore Farmers Market is a popular place for lo- cal shopping. There is a great variety of homemade items, ranging from jewelry and household necessities to fruits and baked goods. It is held every Friday during the summer from 3 to 6:30 p.m. This past Friday, Sept. 20 was the final regular farmers mar- ket at Kinsmen Park. The annual fall fair market will be held Oct. 5 at the Strathmore Civic Centre and the annual Christ- mas market will be held Nov. 30, also at the Civic Centre.

The Bow River Water Management Project completed this spring and rec- ommendations for a collaborative ap- proach to address both flooding and drought were presented to the Alberta government this spring. In Wheatland County, special atten- tion was given to the canal system as both a potential run-off and a potential to expand the system to increase access for irrigation. Alberta’s Minister of Environment and Parks, Jason Nixon, will be holding three town halls in October to discuss the reservoir options with community members. “Flood resilience remains a top prior- ity for the government and the residents of Calgary and many communities in southern Alberta,” Nixon said. The three options for a new reservoir include either building a new reservoir near Morley, between Horseshoe Dam and Ghost Reservoir; or building a res- ervoir between Ghost Reservoir and Be- arspaw Dam; or expanding Ghost Res- ervoir. Information sessions will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30 at the Cochrane RancheHouse, and on Thursday, Oct. 3 and Tuesday, Oct. 15 at RockPointe Church off highway 1A, west of Calgary. “Project details presented at the in- formation sessions will include the po- tential size and locations of the three reservoir options, the scope of the con- ceptual assessment and project time- lines,” according to a press release from the Ministry of Environment and Parks. The conceptual assessment is sched- uled to conclude some time before next spring.

Rosebud Theatre’s The Mountaintop has emotional impact

LAUREEN F. GUENTHER Times Contributor

The Mountaintop, a play about Mar- tin Luther King Jr’s last night on earth, opened at Rosebud Theatre, Sept. 13. It runs until Oct. 19. In this imagined look at Martin Luther King’s last hours, a maid comes to his room late at night, but it turns out she’s bringing much more than room service. She’s been sent to help Martin Luther King prepare for his death. Ray Strachan of Winnipeg, Man. plays the role of Martin Luther King. Patricia Cerra of Edmonton plays Camae, the maid. These two give exceptional per- formances, perhaps the most emotion- ally powerful performances I’ve seen in theatre. We were seated too near the front to fully appreciate the set, but we could fully experience the light and sound design, especially when they create the sensation of a thunderstorm and snowfall. As King and Camae come in from the rain, I was convinced they are sopping wet, and I believed that a rare Memphis snow really was falling, as it did historically the night before King died. This production also uses projection, possibly for the first time in Rosebud Theatre. It does much more than project an image; it conveys the ongoing hope

and the tremendous amount of work still to be done after King’s passing. Early on, King and Camae’s dialogue is mostly slow-moving banter, and I won- dered if anything would ever happen. But soon, and increasingly, it becomes hard-hitting. King’s image as a pastor and conquering hero is wiped away. Ca- mae tells him information that no one on earth could know, and he asks of her – and of God – heart-wrenching ques- tions about the imminent end of his life. I had the sense we in the audience were being hit by an emotional tsunami. Someone near me wept for the last half hour. The Mountaintop wasn’t easy for me to see, but days later, I’m still pro- cessing its impact. Even more remark- ably, that emotional impact seemed just as great for the actors. The story of The Mountaintop takes place in April 1968, more than 50 years ago, but the issues it raises aren’t mere throwbacks to the 1960s. For you and me, in the troubled times of 2019, Mar- tin Luther King’s questions about faith- fulness and legacy, love and despair, and eternity and mortality, are still the questions our hearts often whisper, even when we’re not aware of it. The Mountaintop plays at Rosebud Theatre’s Opera House until Oct. 19. Tickets, which include a meal, can be purchased at rosebudtheatre.com or

FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS IN STRATHMORE

Downtown • The Ranch October 1 - 18, 2019 7 a.m - 7 p.m., including weekends

Have you ever seen water flowing from a fire hydrant but not a fire in sight? You were probably watching a Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) service.

EPCOR will be conducting UDF this month where we flush the water mains to remove sediment and maintain water quality. This process may temporarily result in cloudy water and/or changes in water pressure. Your water remains safe to use.

Once flushing is complete, we recommend you run your cold water tap for approximately three minutes or until water runs clear.

EPCOR continues to monitor and perform ongoing water quality tests to ensure you have quality water at the tap. For more information, visit epcor.com/udf.

for a development permit for an addi- tional 64 campsites, a revised site plan, including a dog run, campsites, golf holes and a redesign of Hole 9. They applied for a permit in 2017 for the expanded sites, but the permit ex- pired before conditions were met. “The landowner continued to devel- op the 64 sites and open them to RV camping in 2019,” stated Megan Wil- liams, planner for Wheatland County. “The county issued a stop order on June 27, 2019, to start enforcement on the unauthorized development. In re- sponse to the stop order the landowner submitted a development permit ap- plication on July 12 that was deemed incomplete. County staff requested ad- ditional information, which was sub- mitted on Aug. 7.” The permit limited the sites to over- night and day camping. Developers had partial water and wastewater con- struction done and intend to provide 50-amp power to the 64 sites. County inspections have not been done on par- tial work. Alberta Transportation was asking Oasis Grove to put in a T-type intersec- tion because the campground is situ- ated along a major roadway. No word from Alberta Transportation has been received yet. Staff stated that there might be softened intersection require- ments if approved by Alberta Transpor- tation. The commission members asked that approval from Alberta Transporta- tion be included in the conditions. The 2017 application had an emer- gency service plan, but it was requested that a more complete plan be required. “I prefer if this is going to go through that there be a full emergency response plan because they will not handle a major fire in that area,” said Wheatland County Councillor Ben Armstrong. Staff amendments included the con- dition of an emergency response plan to the satisfaction of the county. Staff received two support letters for the application, one letter stating un- paid work forced a lien placed on the property, and several objection letters were submitted from adjacent land- owners. “The other road (Twp. 230) is where I am getting a lot of complaints,” said Councillor Donna Biggar. The concerns were about increased traffic and dust control. The county did a traffic count, and it averaged 352 vehicles southbound and 128 vehicles northbound per day.

Armstrong said if the permit is ap-

proved, traffic counts will rise and there should be some provisions made. He considered the campground is close to Calgary, so many people might camp all summer and commute to work daily. “Our policy in land-use bylaw allows for dust abatement as a condition of the development permit application,” said Mike Ziehr, Wheatland County’s general manager of transportation and agriculture. Ziehr added that land- owners pay for the calcium used and then the county equipment operators spread it.

A request was made for wider areas

of dust abatement to include major sur- rounding roads as part of the permit conditions. There was a discussion on possible paving. Staff said the county does not currently have a paving requirement based on traffic counts and felt it would

be too high a cost for applicants to bear. Deputy Reeve Glenn Koester said the road could eventually be considered for the paved roads list. Reeve Amber Link questioned what could be done to address neighbouring landowner concerns. “What I am mainly concerned with is that the interface of neighbouring uses should be a key component when con- sidering the appropriateness of a site for proposed campground develop- ment,” she noted. “Just looking at some of the adjacent ratepayer’s concerns – and I looked at the conditions very carefully – I wonder if there are any conditions that would help mitigate those landowner concerns.” She noted that people were con- cerned about garbage, maintenance, traffic and stray golf balls from the golf course. It was considered that this could be an issue dealt with through county bylaw officers. Councillor Tom Ikert questioned the current track record of the applicant and their delays in meeting conditions. He questioned if there were penalties for non-compliance.

“I am seeing nine violations prior to

construction, and prior to occupancy, and prior to construction and occupan- cy,” said Ikert. Staff ensured Ikert there are financial penalties that can be levied through the bylaws if necessary and guaranteed they would monitor the ongoing work at the site. The board approved the develop- ment permit with the amendments.

Special teams spoil Kings home opener

MARIO PRUSINA

Times Editor

Five on five, the Wheatland Kings went toe to toe with the Okotoks Bisons. However, special teams proved to be the downfall for the local Junior B hockey team, which fell 6-1 in their home opener on Sept. 21 at the Strathmore Fam- ily Centre. The Kings went 1-11 on the power play – scor- ing their lone marker on a five-on-three advantage – while allowing three goals against on five short- handed opportunities. With numbers like that, it’s easy to spot where the game was lost. “Honestly, I think five-on-five we can take these guys all day long – it’s just a matter of staying out of

the box,” said Kings assistant coach Ron West. “The battle and compete level is good, but the bottom line is stay out of the box. We gave up (too many) power play goals and we need to stop that. That will stop. “We have a big weekend next week – three games – and we’ll knock it out then … when you lose the first one with that kind of number, you want back (on the ice) as fast as possible.” Trailing 3-0 early in the third period, the Kings scored their first goal of the season, when Lucas Muenchrath and Adrian Kusu teamed up to find Kody Hammond on the power play. Unfortunately, any mo- mentum gained was squashed 59 seconds later, as the Bisons restored their three-goal lead. The Bisons scored twice late in the game to cement the win. Despite the result, the Kings are optimistic for the upcoming season. They are a young team built on

speed and work ethic. Those strengths can be utilized on the bigger Olympic-size ice surface at the Strath- more Family Centre. “We just have to (use our home ice) to our advan- tage. It’s a big ice and when we have the big ice, we have to dominate,” said West. “We can outskate them; we know what we’re doing on the big ice where oth- er (teams) don’t because they are used to the small ice. We know how to dump and chase a little bit bet- ter, know how to beat them through the middle and control the centre.” The Kings will now prepare for a huge weekend, as they host three games in three days, starting with a home game versus Lomond on Friday, Sept. 27 (8 p.m.) at the Strathmore Family Centre. The Kings will then host High River on Sept. 28 (8 p.m.), before re- turning the next day to host Coaldale at 4:15 p.m.

Times Reporter

Thirteen-year-old Jaxon Campbell is following in his family’s footsteps. His mom, Tiffany Campbell, was a bar-

rel racer, his grandfather, Bob Larsen, a team roper and pole bender, and Jaxon has now found his true passion in ro- deo with the rough stock. Riding for only a little over a year, the young bare- back rider has won his way to compete at the Canadian Junior Roughstock Champi- onships Oct. 4-6 in Teepee Creek, Alta. Campbell is entering the competition in second place from one of the two groups he rides with – the Crooked Horn Canadian Junior Rough- stock – and will be compet- ing against 10 riders from each of the four total groups attending the championships. Campbell is hoping to place top three in the senior divi- sion to earn him a spot at the Junior Roughstock World Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, Dec. 4-10. Having previously played hockey for eight years, Campbell made the difficult decision to focus solely on rodeo this year after learning about his chances of making

it to Las Vegas.

“I decided I wanted to do the rodeo; it’s the Larsen thing to do, my mom did

it and her father did it, but

I was more into the rough

stock so I decided to try bareback,” he said. “I had so much fun, the thrill was awe- some; I was so nervous but

I loved it … and now I get to the rodeo and I am ener- gized and excited to ride.” In fact, that is the main reason he made the transi- tion from playing hockey with a local team to focusing solely on rodeo. After strug- gling for years to make more friends and to be accepted as one of the team, Camp- bell has finally found a place where everyone accepts him for who he is, where he has made many new friends and where other kids even look up to him. Campbell, who has been

described by many in the rodeo community as a true cowboy under the hat, some- one who is helpful, polite and will always shake your hand, has autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and social anxiety disorder. Despite some of the chal- lenges Campbell has faced, he has been described as al- ways working to overcome them, as an awesome and friendly kid and someone who can be counted on to always help with whatever needs being done. “He has really come out of his shell and really come into his own. It has brought out a confidence in him and it’s amazing what acceptance will do, it’s been amazing to watch him grow,” said mom Tiffany, who attributes some of his success to the mentor- ship and advice he has re- ceived from other rodeo par- ents and professionals. Campbell, who has won several rodeos already this year, will be competing in the Crooked Horn Finals on Sept. 29 in Siksika at 11 a.m. Although he has been fo- cusing on riding bareback this year, next year he hopes to try saddle bronc and steer riding on his way to poten-

tially becoming a bull rider. Campbell put his experi- ence with rodeo best when he applied to ride at the Fu- ture Champions Challenge in

Ponoka, Alta., Oct. 24-Nov. 1, something he will find out if he has been chosen to ride in after Oct. 9. “There are so many things

I love about rodeo, the help and support from friends, family and fans, coaches, stock contractors and volun- teers. Everyone is there for each other, not just to win and be the best. When you ride good everyone cheers, when you buck off everyone moans and if you get hurt everyone makes sure you’re okay. I feel like I belong, fit in and can be myself around rodeo and no one judges me for being different,” said Campbell. “Rodeo is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

iar with them. She loved having her family and friends

visit. Benita was also an avid Blue Jays fan and never missed a game of curling on TV. She will be forever remembered by her family and friends as a loving and caring lady. We love you Mom, till we meet again.

rel racer, his grandfather, Bob Larsen, a team roper and pole bender, and Jaxon has now found his true passion in ro- deo with the rough stock. Riding for only a little over a year, the young bare- back rider has won his way to compete at the Canadian Junior Roughstock Champi- onships Oct. 4-6 in Teepee Creek, Alta. Campbell is entering the competition in second place from one of the two groups he rides with – the Crooked Horn Canadian Junior Rough- stock – and will be compet- ing against 10 riders from each of the four total groups attending the championships. Campbell is hoping to place top three in the senior divi- sion to earn him a spot at the Junior Roughstock World Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, Dec. 4-10. Having previously played hockey for eight years, Campbell made the difficult decision to focus solely on rodeo this year after learning about his chances of making

it to Las Vegas.

“I decided I wanted to do the rodeo; it’s the Larsen thing to do, my mom did

it and her father did it, but

I was more into the rough

stock so I decided to try bareback,” he said. “I had so much fun, the thrill was awe- some; I was so nervous but

I loved it … and now I get to the rodeo and I am ener- gized and excited to ride.” In fact, that is the main reason he made the transi- tion from playing hockey with a local team to focusing solely on rodeo. After strug- gling for years to make more friends and to be accepted as one of the team, Camp- bell has finally found a place where everyone accepts him for who he is, where he has made many new friends and where other kids even look up to him. Campbell, who has been

described by many in the rodeo community as a true cowboy under the hat, some- one who is helpful, polite and will always shake your hand, has autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and social anxiety disorder. Despite some of the chal- lenges Campbell has faced, he has been described as al- ways working to overcome them, as an awesome and friendly kid and someone who can be counted on to always help with whatever needs being done. “He has really come out of his shell and really come into his own. It has brought out a confidence in him and it’s amazing what acceptance will do, it’s been amazing to watch him grow,” said mom Tiffany, who attributes some of his success to the mentor- ship and advice he has re- ceived from other rodeo par- ents and professionals. Campbell, who has won several rodeos already this year, will be competing in the Crooked Horn Finals on Sept. 29 in Siksika at 11 a.m. Although he has been fo- cusing on riding bareback this year, next year he hopes to try saddle bronc and steer riding on his way to poten-

tially becoming a bull rider. Campbell put his experi- ence with rodeo best when he applied to ride at the Fu- ture Champions Challenge in

Ponoka, Alta., Oct. 24-Nov. 1, something he will find out if he has been chosen to ride in after Oct. 9. “There are so many things

I love about rodeo, the help and support from friends, family and fans, coaches, stock contractors and volun- teers. Everyone is there for each other, not just to win and be the best. When you ride good everyone cheers, when you buck off everyone moans and if you get hurt everyone makes sure you’re okay. I feel like I belong, fit in and can be myself around rodeo and no one judges me for being different,” said Campbell. “Rodeo is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Obituary BERGQUIST, Benita May 1928 – 2019 Benita Bergquist (McGowan) passed away peacefully surrounded by her

Benita May

1928 – 2019

Benita Bergquist (McGowan) passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on September 5, 2019 at the age of 91. She was predeceased by her husband Ole; son Danny (Boone); sister Sheila; and her parents Tom and Edith. She is survived by her children Lonnie, Tommy, Bon-

nie (Brad), Jo-Anne (Al), and Linda; ten grandchildren

and fourteen great-grandchildren.

Benita was born April 16, 1928 in Calgary, Alberta. Eldest daughter of Tom and Edith McGowan, she lived

all her life in the Standard/Rosebud area where she

met her husband, Ole, and married in 1947. After raising six children, Benita finally got a paper route

for the Calgary Herald. She was a life member of the

Standard Ladies Auxiliary and helped with numerous functions over the years. This is where she showed

off her excellent cooking skills.

Benita enjoyed playing cribbage, crazy rummy, and her scratch tickets, especially the crosswords. She enjoyed talking with people even if she was unfamil-

iar with them. She loved having her family and friends

visit. Benita was also an avid Blue Jays fan and never missed a game of curling on TV. She will be forever remembered by her family and friends as a loving and caring lady. We love you Mom, till we meet again.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Sader and staff at the Strathmore Hospital for their compassion and care in Benita’s final days.

Celebration of Benita’s Life will be held on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at Nazareth Lutheran Church (Stan- dard) at 1:00 p.m. Coffee to follow in the Standard Community Hall.

Sunday, September 29, 2019
On September 24, 1998 the Government of Canada officially
proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year
as Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day. This
National Memorial Day gives Canadians an opportunity
each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication
of police and peace officers, which made the ultimate tragic
sacrifice to keep our communities safe.
