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.

RCMP

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.

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;

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!

VIEWPOINT

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

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.

OBITUARY

Life filled with many friends, lots of hard work, much music and endless laughter Harvey Lorne Johnstone October 11, 1943 – 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 – never complaining and always strong, but ever so sad that he wouldn’t be here to see and share more of his family’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, Harvey’s life was filled with many friends, lots of hard work, much music and endless laughter. He played banjo in the “Beebe orchestra� with Uncle Earl, Auntie Maime, Russ, Keith and Bob and occasionally Jim McKay. He thoroughly enjoyed all the fun and occasional “trouble� 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. Harvey’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. He really enjoyed grain farming – the cattle,

Julie’s tribute - Simply lived life’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 dad’s time that didn’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 ‘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. Dad’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 wasn’t a problem that they didn’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 dad’s family that wishes dad had loved them more. We simply wished we could have loved him longer. I love you through the weeds.

Extremely moral, honest man and loyal friend by Johnny Forrest Our family became neighbours to the Johnstones about 49 years ago and it didn’t take long for me to realize that we had lucked out in the neighbour department, the Johnstone family being what is best described as salt of the earth farm folks. In a rural community good neighbours are often your most valuable asset. As we became better acquainted, Sandra and Harvey and Jeanette and I became good friends; sharing holidays with our kids, attending social functions together, watching our families grow up, many card games (boys against the girls) and many, many visits over coffee. We and the Johnstones helped one another at branding time for nearly 49 years, a job I always looked forward to as, along with the work, it always involved a lot of fun, a good visit and one of Sandra’s home cooked meals. Last spring was the first time Harvey missed it, and it was a sad day for both of us. If I were to list all the good memories I have of time spent with Harvey, we would be here all day. So I will only mention one or two. The four of us driving along, singing along with the eight track and Harvey keeping time on the dashboard (he was a darn good dashboard drummer, and also singer). Or the time the Johnstones hosted a party in their first little home - I bet several people remember that party. There was no room to dance inside, so they moved the speakers out on the lawn where we danced ‘till sunrise: the next day that grass looked like a herd of buffalo had been penned up on it for a week. Harvey always had a good laugh when we recalled that. Harvey was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. There was nothing too good for Sandra or his kids and grandkids. He was extremely proud of all their accomplishments, but being a very modest person he was very careful not to brag about them. Harvey made every effort to attend sporting events that his family were involved in, even when his health was failing he forced himself to be there for him. I am sure they all know that he loved them dearly. Next to his family Harvey loved farming like his dad before him. I don’t think that Harvey ever wanted to be anything but a farmer; he took great joy in watching his and his neighbour’s crops grow and always knew exactly the condition of the crops at any given time. When Harvey and Sandra returned from a trip of any length, Harvey could always give a good account of the crop conditions in the areas that they had travelled. He even inspired me to not just look at livestock but to pay

attention to crop conditions so that I could report to him when returning from a trip. While Harvey was a fairly calm individual most of the year, like most grain farmers he became a man on a mission during spring seeding and harvest. Harvey would not rest easy until the last seed was in the ground in the spring, or the last bushel in the bin in the fall. Harvey enjoyed all sports. He played ball and hockey with the Nose Hill teams and later enjoyed many games and tournaments with the Coronation Old Stock hockey team. Harvey curled a bit, hunted, fished, played golf and played a mean game of horseshoes. He especially enjoyed the friends and acquaintances he made through sports. Harvey was an avid sports fan; he enjoyed watching all sports, live or on TV. Harvey enjoyed music and in younger years played banjo with the Beebe family band. When Harvey had his farm work done in the fall he and Sandra took numerous trips to various points in Canada and the United States, and usually managed to spend some time in Laughlin and Jackpot, Nevada. Two recent trips that Harvey especially enjoyed were a Hawaiian cruise and a trip through the Maritime provinces. Harvey was an extremely moral and honest man and a loyal friend. He was tolerant of different opinions but if there was anything he could not tolerate it was immorality and dishonesty. When Harvey told me about his illness I was impressed - but not surprised - by his courage. He said ‘what will be, will be. We will just have to deal with this as best we can.’ He maintained a positive attitude and lived every day to it’s fullest as long as he was able. As I mentioned, Harvey was a modest person and I would like to close with a poem that I think is how Harvey would describe himself.

Deteriorating classrooms New data recently released by the Alberta government shows a significant decline from already troubling classroom conditions. The statement of class size averages now shows 2012/13 data, where the previous information was current only to 2010/11. Province-wide averages have increased throughout kindergarten through Grade 9, including a 3 per cent increase in the K–3 average, where research shows that small classes make the biggest impact. Whereas three in four jurisdictions were previously exceeding Alberta Commission on Learning recommendations for K–3 class size, now all but nine jurisdictions have class size averages over the target. “This data is disturbing,” said Alberta Teachers’ Association President Mark Ramsankar. “Government has been whittling away at school board grants for years and we are now seeing the results. Unfortunately, this data is still one year old and we know that this year’s situation is much worse.” 2013/14 school year grants for Alberta school boards were cut by a total of $14.5 million across the province at a time when 11,000 new students were expected to enter the system. “We are hearing from kindergarten teachers with 27 students, and we know of one classroom where two teachers are trying to manage with 47 Grade 1 students in one class struggling to learn,” said Ramsankar. “Jurisdiction averages are actually a very poor measure of the real issue. It’s the very large classes that include students with unsupported complex learning needs where learning is most hampered. Those cases are lost in the average but the issue is real for the students in those classes.” Ramsankar is calling on the provincial government to live up to its stated commitment to increase transparency and to publish all of the data from the Class Size Information System on the Alberta Open Data Portal. Ramsankar is also inviting parents and trustee candidates to discuss this issue as part of the current election campaign and to help raise awareness of it. The Alberta Teachers’ Association has launched a publicity campaign including a website, www.stopthecuts.ca, where Albertans can e-mail their MLA to call for more funding for public education.

Oilfield Services Long-term oil futures to remain soft despite recent spot price increases While the conflict in Syria has put upward pressure on the current spot price for oil and on short-term oil futures, a Canadian domestic oil and gas forecast released today by Deloitte’s Resource Evaluation and Advisory practice indicates that the long-term futures for WTI are still soft and point to a long-term price near US$85/bbl by 2018. In the commentary accompanying Deloitte’s September 30, 2013 forecast, Andrew Botterill, Senior Manager, Resource Evaluation and Advisory compares the short and long-term price impacts of similar geopolitical events from recent history, in order to demonstrate what he believes is the long-term impact on market confidence and oil price. “It is no secret that when geopolitical events cause tensions to rise, the price of oil also rises,” said Mr.Botterill, “this is especially true with conflicts, like the one in Syria, that take place in or near the large-scale oil-producing areas of the Middle East. “It raises fears that the supply of oil may be in jeopardy, and that has a swift impact on the short-term price of oil. While we monitor current events closely, we also know that our forecast needs to take a longer view. We find that long-term futures markets are a better barometer of long-term market confidence.” In his forecast commentary,

Mr.Botterill demonstrates the rationale behind the current Deloitte forecast by comparing the short and long-term futures price for WTI oil during the 2006 Israel/Lebanon conflict and North Korean nuclear missile-testing crisis, Turn to Long-term, Pg 11

Hanna Roundhouse celebrates new beginnings Katie Davis News Reporter Everyone was doing the proverbial locomotion at the Hanna Roundhouse on Saturday, September 28 as the historical venue played host to an Open House to showcase it’s new look. The 100 year old structure was recently acquired by the Hanna Roundhouse Society and has since been given a sprucing up in effort to promote and preserve this piece of history as one of the last roundhouses left in Canada. “The roundhouse is a 1913 Canadian Northern Railway building that housed at once point up to 15 locomotives,” says Sandra Beaudoin, founder and president of the Hanna Roundhouse Society. The purpose of the building during it’s peak use was to drive locomotives onto a central ‘turntable’, which rotated to align the rail vehicle to a stall to be entered for service work. “Hanna was a designated divisional point for [CNR] in 1913,” says Beaudoin, “and that was basically the way settlers came out and settled this area, is because CN built a rail line

from Eastern Canada out to the West.” The rail line in Hanna was on what was known as the Goose Lake line which spanned from Calgary to Saskatoon. Some of the smaller towns built along this line were established to support the railway as service stations, and thus when the railway pulled out of some areas certain towns had enough infrastructure to survive and some did not. “A huge portion of our Canadian heritage is to acknowledge that the people that worked on our rail line, built the tracks and the rail stations did so before automation,” Beaudoin says, “so it was all done by hand and horse drawn, there were no engines or anything else.” Beaudoin notes that the building also functions as a tourist attraction, as railroad history enthusiasts from the US and surrounding areas trek northward to visit sites of historical prevalence. An anonymous donation in the name of the Hanna Roundhouse Society - that they will pay back in time - has enabled the Society to purchase the property, begin

Helping hand Clint Hutton and Hanna Roundhouse Society founder and president Sandra Beaudoin. Hutton was one of a collection of people who helped acquire the building and make the weekend a success. ECA Review/K. Davis applying for grants and focus more seriously toward future developments of the premises. “We’ve cleaned it up and we’re going to start right away,” she says, of planning the future of the Roundhouse. “We’ve got 8.97 acres along the dam, and it’s just beautiful out

What looked like a horrific wreckage in downtown Coronation on Friday, September 27 was in actuality Coronation volunteer fire fighters and local EMS hosting an emergency response display for Fire/EMS Appreciation day. The event saw crews ‘rescue’ two volunteers from a wreckage and local electrical crews demonstrate the raw power of untapped electricity. On-hand with cake and prizes was ATB Financial, also donating $1,000 to the Coronation Food Bank. ATCO Electric food and beverage for a small fee and presented the volunteer firefighters with a $3,000 cheque for new gear. ECA Review/K. Davis

Local woman gets documentary in film festival A documentary film shot, edited and produced by Coronation local and ECA Review reporter Katie Davis was recently selected to appear in the Hamilton Film Festival in Hamilton, Ontario. The film, ‘Meet Zoe’ follows St. John’s ambulance volunteer Anna Armstrong and her therapy dog Zoe as they visit hospital patients, children, and the elderly for therapeutic purposes. Along with partners Liz Deciano and Katie Gandy, the film was an undertaking of Documentary Filmmaking class at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. All told filming and editing took about

three months, in which time the crew spent hours and sometimes days observing Zoe’s activities within the community. The documentary has been recognized by the St. John’s Ambulance faction in Oakville. Davis says she is extremely excited to have her film chosen for the festival. “It’s such an honour for my film partners and I,” says Davis, “It was such a wonderful experience and the more people who can learn about this great volunteer practice the better!” The festival runs from November 4 – 10.

McMorris is snowboarding’s ‘Air Apparent’ by Bruce Penton Just like you don’t expect to see a figure skating champion emerge from an upbringing in the Sahara Desert or a golf star grow up in the Antarctic, it’s mind-boggling to consider that one of the world’s best snowboarders and a favourite for a gold medal or two in Sochi,

Russia next February, is a teenager from the flatlands of Regina, Sask. Mark McMorris, 19, known as a superstar in the snowboarding world, is still probably the second-bestknown member of his family in Saskatchewan, because his father is Don McMorris, an

Coronation senior girls volleyball team a winning combination by Cam Brown, Coach The 2013 edition of the Coronation Sr. Angels volleyball team has had a very productive September. We started the year in a 36 team tournament in Vegreville. We have traditionally not done very well at this tournament. This year was different, as we were undefeated going into the quarter - finals against Notre Dame. We ended up losing in three sets to a good team, and the girls have clearly learned from this match as it was the last match we have lost in two more tournaments and two league nights. We then went onto Rosemary where the girls outclassed a number of their opponents, only going to three sets once, taking the gold in a two straight victory over a solid Rosemary squad. This without our senior setter Brooke Lindmark, so Hailey Almusa had to step up and fill very big

shoes. She did just that. We have had two league matches in that time and have defeated Castor and Altario both two straight sets. We travelled this past weekend to Duchess for another 10 -team tournament, missing our captain and leader Cassidy Gardiner to the flu. The girls played very well all day Saturday gathering quite a crowd when they played. It took us three sets to defeat a strong team from Milk River in the semis, and then another three to defeat another good squad in Bassano. The girls showed great composure and continued to battle. After overwhelming Bassano in the first set 25 – 11, the girls gave up the second set 25 – 22, but stormed back to wipe up in the third 15 – 7. All of the girls are playing really well, and working together to improve as a team. I am looking forward to a rewarding season.

McMorris and his older brother, Craig, would shovel snow from nearby parking lots into a pickup truck, and then unload it into the yard,” the Times story said. “They built mounds to give themselves downhill momentum for aerial tricks off whatever they could find scattered in the snow — patio furniture, old tires, the mailbox.” The McMorris legend was certified at the 2012 X Games, when he landed the first competitive triple cork. So what’s that? The Times article described it as “essentially, three flips and four 360degree rotations.” While most Canadian sports fans will be living and dying with the fortunes of Canada’s Olympic hockey team, Saskatchewanians will be eagerly awaiting McMorris’s competitions at Sochi. “A lot of people consider me a gold medal favourite,” McMorris told the Times. “You want to fulfill those expectations.”

elected member of the Legislature since 1999 and a member of Brad Wall’s government caucus as Highways Minister. How big a star has Mark become? A few weeks ago, the venerable New York Times ran a 2,800-word feature on him, headlining the story, ‘Like a Hurricane in the Air’ Mark McMorris, Olympic Snowboarding Gold Contender. The Wayne Gretzky of snowboarding, of course, is multi-gold medallist Shaun White, the shaggy red-haired American who makes millions every year endorsing a multitude of products. But while McMorris might be the ‘air’ apparent, he says White might not be his most significant competition. “There are so many good guys,” he told the Times. The newspaper says McMorris, who started out on a skateboard before moving to snowboards and wakeboards, is proud of his flatland roots. “Forced to make their own mountains, in a city where the largest inclines are freeway exit ramps,
