Clearview School Board updated on Stettler reconfiguration project Brenda Schimke
News Journalist “We have no preconceptions about what the recommendations will be from the Stettler School pilot project,” said John Bailey, Superintendent of Schools at the Clearview Board meeting on September 23, 2013. He and the three Stettler principals Sharon Fischer (Stettler Elementary/ Stettler Middle), Roe Desrosiers (Stettler Outreach) and Norbert Baharall (Wm. E. Hay High School) comprise the Stettler School Study Lead Team (SSSLT). They have been tasked to analyze the potential benefits and implications of various pre-Kindergarten to grade 12 configurations and determine which would best meet the future educational needs of students in Stettler and surrounding communities. Joanne Steinman of the University of Calgary will provide research support by compiling and analyzing data collected. As part of the Board’s commitment to better communicate with its shareholders, Bailey confirmed updates will be made to the Board and stakeholders each step of the way.
Proposed plan Step 1: Immediate input will be sought from staff and parents from all four Stettler schools. They will be asked four questions: 1) what opportunities do you see from reconfiguration; 2) what are potential barriers; 3) what concerns do you have; and 4) any other comments. The answers to these initial questions will give the committee some key indicators. Step 2: The Board of Trustees will hold their initial public consultation in October. The public meetings will focus on data gathering (i.e. anecdotal comments, thoughts, opinions). The first public forum is too early to ask for specific direction ideas. Step 3: With the research data in hand, anticipated in January, the findings and recommendations will be forwarded to staff, parents and the community to seek further feedback. Different forms of communication will be used to garner this feedback, i.e. public forums, electronic responses, written responses, etc. Step 4: The SSSLT will write a final report, based on the research findings and public, staff and community input, and present it to the Trustees at a public Board meeting in April. Step 5: The Board of Trustees would make a final decision on the future direction of education delivery in Stettler. “The SSSLT believes this process honours staff, parents and students, said Bailey.”

week and it has been well received and effective. There was discourse surrounding ways to develop cooperative high school programming between Castor and Coronation. Obtaining data on the delivery of program objectives in single, double and triple-graded classrooms was also discussed.
Erskine school Experts concluded that the fire-stopping debris falling to the gymnasium floor at the Erskine School is not a health issue. The Board voted unanimously to revisit this item during the budget process as it is a continuing nuisance and eyesore. It is estimated that it will cost $92,000 to correct the problem and retain the wood slate ceiling.
Budget Associate Superintendent, Peter Neale advised that although year-end books are not completely finalized, Administration could be looking at a $90,000 surplus. In response to Trustee Peter Simon’s query as to why so much money was left over, Neale said, “My staff are spending when they need to and not spending when they don’t need to.” “There are cultures of government agencies that would not have $90,000 left in administration,” said Neale, “but we are not afraid to leave it.” Excess administration dollars are either turned back to the schools or are used to lessen what is asked of them in the next fiscal year.

Fatal collision near Castor A fatal collision occurred on Friday, September 27, 2013 on Highway 599 east of Castor. At 10:08 pm Coronation and Consort RCMP were dispatched to the scene where a van with driven by Sean Theileman (17) struck a truck hauling farm equipment. Theileman was transported to hospital where he later
succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the truck was not injured. While the cause of the collision is not known, it has been determined that speed was a contributing factor. Alcohol is not thought to be a factor and the driver was wearing a seatbelt.
Myles Butt walked away with several thousand dollars in awards upon winning the Peter Bobryk Award for valedictorian; The Burpee Positive Attitude Award and the Governor General Award. Kendyle Carson won the Clarence Burpee Agriculture Scholarship Award. HPS Wildcats participated in a schoolwide Terry Fox Run. The Leadership class commenced the activity with a multimedia presentation about the life of Terry Fox and the legacy he has left behind. The Teacher Team challenged students to beat them. Members of the team included Mr. Elliott, Mrs. Tainsh, Mr. Duffett, Ms. Campbell, Miss Ohm, Mr. Gulbraa, Miss Heather and Mrs. Samson. Sixty students defeated the teacher’s
team and a donation of $20 per teacher was made towards the collection. Fastest runner in Elementary was Carter Oxamitny; Junior high was Seth Holte and Senior high was Logan Lehne. Fastest teacher was Mr. Gulbraa. Seth Holte was the first back to the school – way to go! Water bottles were provided along the route, with support staff providing assistance when needed. The school run provided another $627 towards the funds that the community raised the previous weekend. Accolades were given to the Grade 7 Home Ec class for a delicious taco salad lunch and to the Food Studies 10 class for a wonderful ‘pumpkin squash’ dessert.

Travis Grabill hauling a myriad of items to the Castor dump. ECA Review/Submitted
Unconventional way to travel Katie Davis
News Reporter Sylvia and Mark Johnson were out driving one afternoon toward the end of August when they spotted an unconventional sight and thought to take a photo. The image - that of a man biking down a country road with a makeshift trailer was quite unique indeed, and the two decided to send the picture to local news media for a gander. The ECA Review reached out to the owner/operator of the creative vehicle; Travis Grabill from Castor. When the picture was taken, he was hauling a myriad of items to the Castor dump. “There was a couch on top with recliners on each side, a double mattress folded up, and a broken-up entertainment stand inside,” says Grabill of the items he was carrying that day. “I figure that load was at least 250 pounds.” Grabill says
the highest weight he’s carried was around 900 pounds. He said the idea for the design came when he was living in Camrose about 10 years ago, where he purchased a two-by-two foot trailer for delivery jobs. “I went on my computer, got my paints or whatever, and just figured I’d design a bigger trailer,” Grabill says. He says he’s not required much maintenance to keep it or his bike - in good condition for driving since then. Grabill says he has another design in mind for the future; that of a larger-model truck trailer - seven feet in length, three feet wide and kidfriendly. “It’s going to have bucket seats [to fit] two kids and the doors are going to be able to open like regular vehicle doors,” says Grabill. Despite winter’s prompt arrival, Grabill says he’s not planning on changing his biking habits when the snow flies.

Corrections The ECA Review would like to correct a misquote from Coronation Town Council, as reported in the September 27 edition of the ECA Review. The quote below was falsely attributed to Councillor Jackie Brigley, when it should have been attributed to Deputy Mayor Bonnie Danylyshen. The correc-
tion is made as follows: “(Not donating) is not a popular move but how popular is it to be giving money to something that’s not doing anything for our community,” Danylyshen said, “We had that discussion at the last PEPS meeting about CAEP, (that) CAEP was not doing anything for us, well I guess you have to look at PEPS;
what’s PEPS doing for us?” The ECA Review would also like to correct an omission of names in the Allan Zinger card of thanks. Names missed in the tribute included Leanne (Carson), Chris (Li), Kody, Josie and Grandma Josie.
Summer-long display of beauty Dear Editor, We would like the staff of the Town of Hanna, and especially the flower barrel detailers to be congratulated for the wonderful summer-long display of beauty scattered in well spotted locations about town. The arrangements were stunning and so varied, it was pleasurable to drive about town seeking out more. We also appreciated the drive along the Snake Trail to Scapa (North Palliser Trail), viewing well kept and evergreen
farmyards too this year. Great jobs!

Progress is under real threat in Canada for the first time in generations Dear Editor, The very idea of progress is under real threat in Canada for the first time in generations. The Canadian promise, that if you get educated and work hard, you can guarantee a better life for yourself and for your kids, is being seriously questioned.Travis Grabill o Middle-class incomes have stalled for a generation, leaving many Canadians feeling anxious about whether we can afford the education our kids will need and whether we can afford to upgrade our own skills and knowledge to keep pace in an economy where 7 of 10 jobs will require a diploma, degree or skilled trade. While the provinces have constitutional responsibility for education, there is a long history of federal efforts to supplement and support provincial policies. The federal government should support the efforts of individual
Canadians to go to university, college or trade school, as well as to continue their education throughout their lives. A high-quality education serves as a roadmap to a rewarding career and fosters the kind of innovation and productivity required for Canadian businesses to succeed. Yet the education policies of the Conservative government have been failures. They have ignored a serious problem with low graduation rates for apprentices, which deprive the economy of highly skilled people. They have done almost nothing to help offset the growing costs of education, letting student debt skyrocket under their watch. Even their new Job Grant program is a shell game which actually takes money away from training programs, and does nothing to support the type of training

used so successfully by small businesses. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau believes we need to take education more seriously as a driver of economic success and security right across the country. He has argued that Canada needs a new national focus on education, which would build Canada’s competitive advantage around a highly skilled, creative and innovative workforce, because Canadians’ ingenuity and work ethic represent the best investment we can make in an era when change is the only constant. Let’s join Justin and work to make Canada the best educated country on Earth.

Life filled with many friends, lots of hard work, much music and endless laughter Harvey Lorne Johnstone October 11, 1943 â€“ September 20, 2013 Harvey passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side, which was his wish. He had struggled with cancer for the past four years â€“ never complaining and always strong, but ever so sad that he wouldnâ€™t be here to see and share more of his familyâ€™s life stories. Harvey was born in Consort Hospital the second and last child of Wilson and Zita Johnstone. He attended school at Lakesend, Wheatridge, Nose Hills and Veteran, riding horseback to and from both Lakesend and Wheatridge. In 1965 he married Sandra Schetzsle and they settled down in the Nose Hills area on the old Percy Grey farm. It was here they raised their family with many laughs and much love. As a child, Harveyâ€™s life was filled with many friends, lots of hard work, much music and endless laughter. He played banjo in the â€œBeebe orchestraâ€? with Uncle Earl, Auntie Maime, Russ, Keith and Bob and occasionally Jim McKay. He thoroughly enjoyed all the fun and occasional â€œtroubleâ€? they would get into. Harvey enjoyed sports and played fastball and hockey with the Nose Hills teams for many years. In later years he played recreational hockey with the Coronation Old Stock and gained many new friends in the process. Harveyâ€™s main loves were Sandra, his wife of 48 years, his four children and spouses and grandchildren, all of whom he was so proud, his friends and his farm surrounded by the hills.

Julieâ€™s tribute - Simply lived lifeâ€™s lessons by Julie Schroeder Everyone has that certain someone in their life that gives them strength when you have none, courage when you are weak, hope when all is lost and love, simply because it is a gift to give. My father was that person to me. The most important life lessons are ones that my father never actively tried to teach me. He simply lived them. Dad was a man with strong integrity, dedication and commitment to his family. He exemplified the type of person we all strive to be. Never giving advice unless we asked him, never telling us what we did wrong, simply let us find our way but was always there if we chose the wrong path. My dad was very dedicated to his family. With the exception of work, nothing filled my dadâ€™s time that didnâ€™t involve his family. He would drive everywhere and anywhere if one of his children or grandchildren were playing baseball, hockey, volleyball, curling or attending music recitals. He was your biggest fan. As generous as my dad was with his time and his assistance, he was even more generous with his love. Dad loved to camp, fish and golf, but in the last five years it became an annual event for all of our families to get together and gather at Capt â€˜Ayre Lake for a weekend of great laughter, games and the occasional craziness. Dad loved to sit by the fire and listen to Cam, Kelly, Greg and Randy making fun of each other and telling funny stories and sometimes when they were just about to cross that
invisible line, dad would do his famous hand gesture, one that we all love to do to this day. Dad also loved fireworks and every year the annual camping trip got bigger and better with the fireworks display. It was this past August that dad found incredible strength to be able to be part of one last trip to the lake to see what kind of fireworks display we would have. Many people knew dad to be a great dancer. I remember watching my mom and dad as a young girl and being completely in awe of how smooth he was and could hardly wait until he would teach me. Dad, the dance floor was full during the last campout when you were sleeping. Everyone had a turn and you would have loved it. We will also keep the tradition of drumming on the dashboard and singing, both of which you loved to do after a night out with friends. Dadâ€™s greatest love was mom. In fact their marriage was a model to his children that will be hard to live up to. He and mom did everything together. He relied on her and she relied on him. There wasnâ€™t a problem that they didnâ€™t work out together. Dad loved the farm. He taught us respect for animals even letting us bring into the house just about every creature we could find, if it meant we could save it. Even baby skunks. He simply wanted us to embrace the simple things God gave us.
Today we say goodbye to a husband, father and grandfather, but many of you here today say goodbye to a friend. Dad taught us the value of friendship. It was evident every time any of his friends stopped by. So many great memories were made around the kitchen table, so much laughter which by the end of the night would usually lead to more singing and dancing. He loved each of you. My dad had many loves and interests but if there is one thing that I would want you to remember my dad for, it would be that he loved us with all his heart. As we gather here today to celebrate his life, I know there is not one member of my dadâ€™s family that wishes dad had loved them more. We simply wished we could have loved him longer. I love you through the weeds.
