Stettler County Council

Council debates smoking laws

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Come September 12 the public is

invited to join Stettler County Council

during a public hearing to discuss

upcoming preparation of the legislation

within Stettler County.

The County conducted a survey in

which over 600 participants took to

determine the direction council should

go in and to get a gauge on what the

community in and around Stettler

believes is the best route to take.

Federal and provincial government

have required municipalities to amend

their bylaws to reflect this incoming


Municipalities are unable to entirely

prohibit cannabis production or sales

but may decide to customize certain

aspects as to how business is


Majority, 78 per cent were either neutral

or not concerned about the

separation distance between cannabis

stores while 78 per cent either neutral

or very concerned about the separation

distance of cannabis stores to

places where youth gather.

Nearly 70 per cent of surveyors want

cannabis stores separated from places

where youth gather by 200 metres or


For retail, only 23 per cent were concerned

about the location and 25 per

cent felt that a farm was an appropriate

place to have a store location.

Forty-four per cent thought that

hamlet commercial areas are appropriate

cannabis store location.

Lastly, 58 per cent were either neutral

or not concerned about the

location of cannabis production


Cannabis retail sales and production

has been added and defined in the list

of discretionary uses within Land Use

Bylaw 1597-18.

Marijuana can be produced at a certain

property but must not be sold at

the same location unless the operator

and or owner have a separate permit

for the intent of sale.

All of these rules from the bylaw are

still subject to change as the bylaw has

only passed first reading.

Council hopes to see many faces at

the public hearing on Sept. 12 to make

an appearance to voice their concerns

or suggestions over the proposed bylaw

before nation legalization begins on

Oct. 17, 2018.

Botha and Erskine get the blues

The communities of Botha and

Erskine safely have an answer when it

comes to signage around their homes.

Council made the motion to have

small blue rectangle shaped signs with

numbers representing locations at

each residence in the two hamlets all

in the name of safety.

Each resident will acquire this

blue sign and a steel post which will be

placed in the front yard of each home

as it is visually easier for emergency

personnel to find the home they are

needed to attend to.

Residents will, however, have the

option of moving their sign or placing

it somewhere on their home but must

contact the county and fill out an application

to change the location of the


From there, an assessor from the

county will determine if and where

another placement for the sign would

be better. All signs are required to be

visible from the main road.

Roadside vegetation

The county implemented a program

to eradicate troublesome weeds

throughout the area approximately

four years ago.

Each year, a third of the county is

sprayed for noxious weeds to accommodate

for budget costs and man

power. This year the crew is working

on weeds in the south third and have

since completed a full cycle.

The Agricultural Service Board

recommended the county should allow

staff to continue spraying into the

middle third of the county up to $58,000

in herbicide and manpower which is

money that was left from last year’s

budget. This money was not anticipated

in the 2018 budget.

Only 51 per cent was covered in the

middle third based on weather and

timing of growth.

Agricultural Fieldman Quinton

Beaumont was told by companies DOW

and Bayer that they were still supportive

of eradication of noxious weeds

at this time despite how late in the year

it seems.

The fieldman also said the program

was ‘seeing some ground’ after three

years but much more work is needed to

be done before the game of catch up is


A motion was made to stay in the

southern third of the county.

In Action No.: P1602-900480, the Provincial Court of Alberta

determined that Sherri Galloway was wrongfully dismissed

apologizes for any stress or pain that her dismissal or this

Stettler Town Council

West Stettler Park bridge upgrades

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

West Stettler Park is due for some

much-needed work as two bridges in

the park will be worked on to make

them safer and more reliable for the

residents of Stettler.

The bridge adjacent to the gazebo

and the bridge near the playground

are in question.

Safety concerns were raised

regarding the older style bridges as

there are many holes in which children

can fall through into the canal.

Consistency and liability were the

main aspects council looked at in

terms of decision making.

Mayor Nolls said “Being as we are

going to be seeing one from the other it

is important that we maintain that

consistency as well so if it is within

visual it should be the same standard

as the other one as well.

“Also on the safety side, I get it. I

know it is easy to say that but occasionally

it does happen when kids get away

from us and sometimes we have to be

those people who look out for those

kids as well. That is our responsibility


Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

Greg Switenky urged the panel of

councillors to move along with the

project before ‘the snow flies’. He also

mentioned this project was not

accounted for in this year’s budget but

can be accounted for and deferred into

the 2019 budget.

Council made a final decision to

award the tender to DNR Pressure

Welding Ltd. of Stettler in the amount

of $20,000 with ‘wiggle room’ towards

the structural renovations to the


Fixes include a new paint job and

steel beams will be added.

Goats get go-ahead

The Town of Stettler received what

many may call an odd request as a

couple from the area has asked to have

their property rezoned to accommodate

the farming of goats throughout

the summer.

In 2008, the property was zoned

Cannabis Conversation

lights up in Stettler

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

A number of hot button items were

discussed during the Wed. Aug. 8

Community Cannabis Conversation

held at the Stettler Legion Hall.

As legislation moves further down

the political pipe, Stettler residents

were curious as to how legislation

would shape up in their town of

roughly 6,000 people.

“There was a variety of questions

as far as some of the regulations

regarding dispensing and what is

going to be allowed by the municipality

itself,” said Shelly Walker, Executive

Director of Stettler & District Family

and Community Support Services


FCSS Stettler hosted the event in

hopes of getting a wide variety of opinions

about the controversial substance

before the Town and County of Stettler

make any decisions.

Approximately 30 people were in

attendance with majority of the conversation

centred around the legal

ramifications of using the drug and

what constitutes a criminal offence.

“It was a really good open discussion,”

said Walker. “I think the biggest

concern right now has been municipalities

trying to work out their bylaws

surrounding it. It’s a really tough

struggle for them.”

The stakeholders panel consisted

of the local RCMP, Town of Stettler,

County of Stettler, Alberta Health

Services, Mental Health and Addiction

Services, Stettler and District Board of

Trade and Turning Point.

More public meetings will be held

closer to the date of federal legalization

on October 17.

“The community is pretty well

intune,” she continued. “We know that

[marijuana] has always been here, it is

just a matter of what it’s going to look

In May of 2018 the Town received a

complaint regarding the presence of

have property rezoned back to Urban

Elnora Brahma Rama

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The 20th Annual Elnora Brahma

Rama was one for the books as

many young men entered the ring

to test their agility and strength

against wild brahma cows.

Three teams of three set out to

essentially hold the large livestock

with a rope and milk it before

releasing. All six teams did not

reach a time.

The main attraction had several

experienced cowboys compete for

the buckle and higher Professional

Bull Rider (PBR) standings.

Australia’s Justin Paton came out

on top for his round 1 ride on ‘Kool

Aide’, scoring himself a solid 85


Nick Tetz of Calgary placed

second after scoring 82 points and

Wyatt Gleeson of Sundre took third

overall for a total of 79 points.

Elnora’s main event also held a

mini rank pony competition, pancake

breakfast and bathtub races.

Friday evening 19 two-year-old

bucking bull prospects were bucked

with a weighted dummy to simulate

the weight of a rider, for five seconds.

The bulls were scored with

the bull, 8-619 owned by Lindsay

and Vinee Carlier of X6 Ranch

coming in with the highest bucking

points at 84.75.

Second place went to Bull D30

owned by Dry Island Cattle

Company with a score of 84.25; 3rd -

Bull 624 owned by Nasen Vole of

Vold Rodeo scoring 83.25; 4th place -

Bull 100 owned by Flying High

Rodeo Co. at 82.5 points.

The committee estimated 1700

people in attendance.

Medical school

graduates without

residency placements


The opinions expressed are not necessarily

the opinions of this newspaper.






Published by




Brenda P. Schimke

ECA Review

News reports in the spring of this

year highlighted the growing numbers

of Canadian medical school graduates

who were shut out of residency placements

in Canadian hospitals.

In 2009 there were 11 graduates

without a placement, this year there

were 115, up from 99 the year before.

When we add Canadians who have

graduated from recognized medical

schools in America, Ireland and

Britain and who subsequently passed

their Canadian medical exams, the

number being shut out of residency

placements is unprecedented.

It is sad and ironic

that the skills of so many

Canadian doctors-intraining

are going to waste

at a time when we have a

critical shortage of family


All our Canadian medical students

have at least 10 years of undergraduate

education, huge student debts and in

the case of Canadian-trained students

used the resources and space of taxpayer-funded

public universities.

It is sad and ironic that the skills of

so many Canadian doctors-in-training

are going to waste at a time when we

have a critical shortage of family


Now we learn from Saudi Arabia’s

Guest editorial

Ignorance is the enemy

of America

by Brian Wilson, News Editor

The Star News, Medord, Wisconsin

You can tell a lot about a person by

how they treat a watch dog.

The purpose of a watch dog is to

alert people about possible danger and

deter those with bad intentions from

carrying out their evil deeds.

The media is America’s watchdog.

It is the institution that maintains

hissy-fit leader, Mohammed bin

Salman, that our hospitals have many

Saudi state-sponsored medical residency

candidates and students.

Numbers have been hard to verify,

but it appears approximately 800

Saudis were taking up spots in

Canada’s teaching hospitals.

I suspect if the truth be known,

Saudi is just one of many countries

taking up spots and pushing

Canadians, who want to attend medical

schools or need a residency

placement, aside.

In defence of public universities and

hospitals, they have been receiving a

smaller share of public financial support

for the past 30 years. This trend

has forced post-secondary institutions

to make up a minimum of 30 per cent

of their budgets through revenue generation.

In addition to tuition fees,

there are two major sources of revenue,

corporate sponsorship and

international students.

Corporate sponsorship often comes

with a need to rationalize away a certain

amount of academic

independence, whereas international

students generate cold hard cash.

It’s a reminder for us. When a government

reduces deficits or income tax

rates by cutting budgets to publicallyfunded

institutions, there could be

Which is the real crisis?

Dear Editor,

Recently, an Angus Reid poll

reported that the majority of

Canadians think that illegal crossings

of our southern border have reached a

crisis point.

Here are the facts: we received 31,000

refugees since the start of last year.

More than usual but that’s happening


The UN reports that, last year,

Canada got only 0.2 per cent of the

overall refugee population in the


A challenge? Yes. A crisis? No. We

have a system and it works: real refugees

will be welcomed; liars and

criminals will be deported.

As for people coming to Canada illegally,

yes, some had no choice. Under

an agreement with the US, refugees

who are already in the US will be automatically

denied entry to Canada

because we officially consider them to

be already safe. But let’s get real. We

know what the US is doing to refugees,

and it’s far from safe (especially for

kids) so some chose to get arrested and

make their case. This is understandable

and, again, not a crisis.

Meanwhile, in the same week as the

Angus Reid poll, two American

researchers reported that they had discovered

three million tweets directed

at Canadians that had been generated

by Russian troll farms, proving that

Canada is definitely a target in

Russia’s clandestine -- and very effective

-- attack on western democracies.

The Russian goal is to get us worked

up about whatever relatively small

issue is making the news -- refugees,

pipelines, etc. -- so that politicians are

so busy doing damage control that we

fail to respond to the real threat:

Russian aggression. Russian fake news

was right-wing, left-wing and just plain

upsetting (like turkeys being tainted

with salmonella).

Why is Russia attacking Canada? We

are a strong partner in the alliance of

democracies, and we supported sanctions

on Russia, particularly Putin’s

inner circle, in retaliation for malicious

cyber activities, attempts to

subvert Western democratic elections,

the invasion of Crimea, violent interference

in Ukraine, and it’s vile

support to the Syrian regime in

bombing its civilians.

These sanctions stop Putin’s buddies

from a number of activities -- including

getting loans -- that would allow them

to do worse.

It seems incredible that the

President of the United States is cooperating

with the President of Russia to

destroy western democracies.

The fact that Russian interference in

the US helped get Trump elected, and

Canadians are now falling for the

same tactic, is the real crisis.

What can we do? Don’t let ourselves

get upset over things that don’t matter.

Whatever issue worries us, we should

imagine the very worst that could


Some of these scenarios are troubling

but survivable. Some will destroy

democracy. Some will kill us.

Let’s stay calm and make sure we

focus on the real crisis.

Janie Nelson, true partner on the ranch when needed

Janie Marjorie Nelson

1922 ~ 2018

Janie Marjorie Nelson passed away

Aug. 6, 2018 at the age of 95 in

Hanna, Ab.

Janie was born in

Vanguard, Sk. on Oct. 17, 1922

and was the eldest of three siblings,

Donald, Benjamin, and

Ada. She played an active

care-taking role in their early

Sykes Nelson from

Hallonquist, Sk., on Dec. 23, Nelson

1942. She joined him on the

Nelson family farm, later moving to a

ranch at Cadillac, Sk. while Jack

worked there and at the PFRA community


During this time, they had two children,

David, born March 24, 1946 and

Hilda Mae, May 4, 1954.

In 1957, Janie and Jack purchased a

ranch south of Youngstown. Their

third child, Jerry, was born

Dec. 15, 1970.

Janie had many interests

including quilting, knitting,

gardening, raising chickens,

getting a good deal at sales

and visiting with dear

neighbours and friends.

Many quilts and sweaters

were gifts to family and are

still being used today.

Janie was an excellent

cook and in the early days of

her marriage cooked for the threshing

crews that came to harvest their crops.

Later, she cooked for branding and

weaning crews where meals were

always well-received – honest, delicious

fare. Janie was a true partner to

Jack on the ranch, helping in any

capacity that he needed.

Janie’s faith was clear and central to

her days. She attempted to quietly live

it out in all her dealings with others.

In 2012, Janie and Jack moved to the

Hanna Lodge where they resided until

they transferred to extended care.

Janie was always interested in

everything that her grandchildren

were involved in and kept up with their

lives. She joyed in their many successes

and accomplishments.

Janie is survived by her son, Jerry

filled with every hunter enthusiast’s


Most items shown can be sold or

traded but others remain more valuable

like collectible antiques.

The show’s success is evident in

every aspect as people from all over

western Canada have made a point of

stopping by to experience the show.

“We are sold out every year with a

waiting list of people wanting to get

in,” explained Stan Taylor, organizer

and founder of the Torrington Gun


“We always have some new exhibitors

who are new to our show,” he said

Handmade work as well as gun and

gun-related items are to be sold or

traded by the hundreds.

“Books are a big thing with our

shows and all types of guns; handguns,

shotguns, rifles, old, new, used and

antique,” said Taylor.

Parking is available in and around

the arena and a snack bar will be stationed

inside for those who get a

Not the job of the media to be liked

Cont’d from Pg 6

To do less would be a betrayal to all

those who have sacrificed in the name

of speaking the truth and those who

have bled and died on battlefields to

defend what it means to be an


It is even greater betrayal to the millions

of Americans who rely on the

media every day for the information

they need in order to be active participants

in American democracy.

Despite whatever conspiracy theory

you may subscribe too, there is no

secret cabal of media elites. There are

no hidden protocols or shadowy figures

pulling the strings to manipulate

the media message.

That is the stuff of spy thrillers and

dime store novels and has about as

much basis in reality as unicorns,

fairies and science fiction space forces.

The media is not a monolith.

Writers, editors and the thousands of

other professionals who work in the

media speak with their own voices and

ask their own questions.

Among this vast sea of watchdogs

there are those who would embrace

the labels of conservatives, liberals

and moderates and those who would

eschew any political label as a tarnish

to their objectivity.

Among the ranks of newsrooms

there are military veterans and volunteers

and those who would go to the

wall in defense of American freedoms

and democracy.

It is no secret that President Donald

Trump doesn’t like the news media.

In particular, he is quick to label any

media outlets that are critical of his

regime as being “fake news.”

Trump has escalated his language

calling the media the enemy of the

people. He tells his followers to not

trust what they see and hear reported,

but instead listen only to him.

This is not the message of a patriot,

but echoes those of would be hucksters,

charlatans, tyrants and emperors all

standing naked on a stage claiming

that their robes and gowns are of the

finest cloth.

There have been many politicians

who have cursed the meddling media,

usually about the time when the politicians’

misdeeds come to light.

It is not the job of the media to be

liked, just like it is not the job of the

watchdog to be silent when the thief is

lurking in the bushes in the middle of

the night.

Lies, greed, and corruption are the

true enemies of America.

The men and women in the news

media who every day turn over the

rocks to shed light on the misdeeds of

politicians are doing their jobs.

They along with the voters who take

that information and make informed

decisions when they go to the polls, are

the champions of America, not its


You have to wonder about anyone, let

alone a president, who would tell you

to ignore the alarms and the barking

of the watchdogs and that he alone is

the keeper of the truth.

A consistent stream of peas falls into the basin of a newer John Deere combine where a

prairie grasshopper stays above the pileup on Mon. Aug. 13. A few farmers in central Alberta

have begun to harvest peas in hopes of salvaging as much as they can after facing drought

conditions and extreme high temperatures for more than two weeks. ECA Review/T.Huxley

ECA Review

The combines have been dusted off

only to get more back on as Harvest 18’

begins in east central Alberta.

The early start was mostly due to

drought-like conditions that much of

the prairies have witnessed this


The Alberta Crop Report explained

that the Central Region, spreading

from Rimbey to Airdrie to Coronation

to Oyen areas, crop conditions are significantly

below provincial average at

39.6 and 51.6 per cent respectively.

Poor subsurface soil moisture at the

beginning of the year made the

growing season tough on potentially

high yielding crops. The summer precipitation

the area has seen this year

was not enough to support better


The report also outlined that the

continuing heat and hail will lead to

smaller yields and lesser quality grain.

A few spots within the area were hit

with hail as well as the odd thunderstorm

which carried small to decent

amounts of rain.

Crops under drought stress have

been burning up and maturing much

quicker than what is normally

expected with some pea crops close to

reaching desiccation.

For livestock usage, there is a

shortage of hay in some areas and pastures

are struggling to keep with

consistent grazing.

Although conditions are unfavourable,

as the saying goes “There is

always next year”.

Who eats Alberta Beef?


Demand for Alberta beef remains

strong, both domestically and internationally.

Jason Wood, provincial

livestock market analyst with Alberta

Agriculture and Forestry (AF), breaks

down the numbers from the recently

released Agriculture Facts 2018.

Estimated Alberta beef production

was 732,051 tonnes in 2017, up five per

cent from 2016. “Of that,” says Wood,

“Albertans consumed 16 per cent, or

117,128 tonnes. Canadians – outside of

Alberta – consumed 51.3 per cent, or

375,542 tonnes. Alberta exported 24.3

per cent, or 177,888 tonnes to the U.S.,

while 8.4 per cent, or 61,492 tonnes, was

exported to other countries.”

The domestic demand for beef is

strong in Canada. Explains Wood,

“Comparing changes in beef consumption

and price shows that

consumption decreased about 8.4 per

cent between 2013 and 2017 while the

indexed price of beef rose 19.5 per cent

during that same period. As well,

average per capita beef consumption

was 25.9 kilograms in 2017, up marginally

from the previous year.”

Wood adds that the average of various

retail beef product prices, as

reported to Statistics Canada, shows

that prices have remained relatively

flat, averaging $19.30 per kg

in the first five months of

2018. “Based on this average,

retail beef prices are down

five per cent from highs in

2016 but remain eight per

cent higher than the five

year average.”

“By comparison, an

average of various retail

pork and chicken products

shows that prices have

shown more stability than

beef,” says Wood. “The

average retail pork price for

2018 is $12.77 per kg, on par

with 2017. That is down

three per cent from the high

in 2016 and five per cent

higher than the five year


The average retail chicken

price in 2018 is $7.40 per kg,

up two per cent from 2017,

but down 1.6 per cent from

2016 and 1.6 per cent above

the five year average.

“While domestic prices have

fluctuated, they have shown

more stability compared to

global price indices for red

meats and poultry,” notes

Wood. For more information

“It is so good to be alive today,” he

said in his remarks at the rider recognition

ceremony. “STARS is an

incredible service and it’s possible

because of your continued support. I

would not be here if not for STARS. I

hope you never need it, but it’s there if

you do.”

In addition to silent auction donations

from nine communities, a poker

rally and quilt raffle, riders from four

years of age to 90 years of age


Organizers report $47,000 was realized

by the day-long event. In its

29-year history, the ride has been

responsible for $800,000 being raised

for STARS.

Rumsey’s 83-three-year-old Ernie

Goddard for example, assembled

nearly $9,000 in pledges. This Ride-athon

has been going for 29 year and

Goddard hasn’t missed one. Other top

senior riders included Lynn Tanner

and 90-year-old Marvin Donaghy.

Between them, junior riders Rylee

Jones, 11, Chesney Anderson, 6, and

Easton Comte, 4, raised $6,669.

Grazing ditches allowed

Lacombe County approves use of

ditches for livestock grazing

In response to the dry conditions in

the area, Lacombe County Council

passed a motion at the August 9

Council meeting to temporarily allow

the grazing of livestock in ditches.

“The hot weather and lack of moisture

have negatively impacted

pastures in the County, and we want to

support our agriculture producers by

providing them with this option to feed

their livestock,” said Reeve Paula Law.

Lacombe County residents may use

roadsides to graze for the remainder of

the 2018 season under the following


• The livestock owners will remain

liable for any damage caused by livestock

to: County roadsides, utility

company infrastructure or damage to

adjacent properties by livestock that

are at large.

• Livestock owners may fence roadsides

adjacent to their own property,

however, will need to get signed permission

to fence roadsides adjacent to

lands they do not own.

• Fencing must be removed by

October 1, 2018

• Owners that do not remove fencing

may be charged for the cost of removal

should the County need to remove it

for their operations.

• Subsequently, the County will not

be liable for damage to temporary

fencing that is caused by normal maintenance


• Due to higher traffic volumes and

speeds, fencing adjacent to paved roads

is prohibited.

For more information on this, please

Optimization tool a valuable follow-up

Cont’d from Pg 10

The combine optimization tool was

developed on behalf of the CCC by the

Prairie Agricultural Machinery

Institute (PAMI) and is intended to

assist with the process of setting the

combine for canola harvest. The new

tool can be found at

alongside calculators for

target plant density and seeding rates.

“In combine adjustments for all

crops, we are trying to balance productivity

with harvest losses and

grain quality but most producers

know firsthand the particular challenge

this can pose for canola

harvest,” says Angela Brackenreed,

CCC agronomy specialist. “We often

see an unacceptable level of loss that

is frustrating to correct.”

In 2016, the CCC released a video

explaining the loss measurement process

and revamped the Combine Seed

Loss Guide. Brackenreed says the

combine optimization tool is a valuable

follow-up. “Simply suggesting

that setting adjustments need to be

made when there are high losses is

much easier said than done, particularly

with challenging harvest


The combine optimization

tool takes the traditional

diagnostic settings flowchart

and puts it into a

web-based application you

Pre-harvest perennial weed control


The later stages of the

growing season are a very effective

time for controlling

perennial weeds such as

Canada thistle, quackgrass, and


“At this time of the year,

perennial weeds are preparing

for winter by putting energy

reserves into their root systems

and the application of a glyphosate

product now generally

provides very good control of

these weeds,” says Mark Cutts,

crop specialist at the Alberta

Ag-Info Centre. “Glyphosate is a

systemic herbicide that moves

through the foliage into the root

system and results in the death

of the entire plant. Applying

glyphosate to a standing crop is

referred to as pre-harvest and

has become a very common

management practice.”

“It should be noted that in

order for the glyphosate application

to be effective, the weeds

need to be actively growing,”

Cutts adds. “With drier conditions

in areas of the province

this growing season, an evaluation

of these weeds should be

made before a herbicide

East Central AB Review-9.4856x7.25in


Cutts says that producers

considering pre-harvest as a

management tool for their crops

should consider several factors.

Registered crops

Pre-harvest glyphosate is registered

on a number of crops

including cereals (wheat, barley

and oats), a number of pulse

crops, canola, and flax.

“Producers growing barley for

malt should contact their malt

buyer to ensure a pre-harvest

application is acceptable. It

should also be noted that a preharvest

application shouldn’t be

applied to a crop that’s being

grown for seed due to potential

reductions in germination and

vigour levels.”

Timing of application

For registered crops, pre-harvest

applications should be done

when seed moisture is less than

30 per cent. Says Cutts, “This

moisture content can be

assessed by using the thumb

nail test or visual test. For

example, in registered cereal

crops, 30 per cent seed moisture

correlates to the hard dough

stage of the grain. At this stage,

a thumb nail impression

remains on the seed. In a field

pea crop, a visual test is used.

At 30 per cent seed moisture the

majority of the pods (75-80 per

cent) are brown. For visual

symptoms for remaining registered

crops, you can refer to the

Crop Protection 2018


Rate of application

The standard rate for glyphosate

in a pre-harvest application

is 360 grams active ingredient

per acre. “Due to variations in

the concentration of glyphosate

products, producers will need to

ensure that the glyphosate

product is being applied at the

proper rate. For example, the

application rate will vary from

0.67 to 1.00 litres per acre

depending upon the product

being used.”

Time required

A minimum of three days are

required after the application of

the glyphosate before a crop can

be swathed or harvested. “If

weather conditions aren’t

favourable after the glyphosate

application, waiting a few extra

days may benefit weed control,”

says Cutts. For more info: 310-

Canada’s TV

sports personalities:

Who do you like?

by Bruce Penton

Choosing your favourite

television sports personality

is hardly a scientific matter.

It’s like asking someone to

pick their favourite colour

or their favourite brand of

vehicle. It comes down to

personal preference. You

like green? I think blue is

better. You’re a GM guy? I’ll

take a Ford.

Same goes with TV sports

personalities. There are

dozens to choose

from, in a number of

categories: Play-byplay;


commentators; analysts;


program hosts;

anchors. Some are

smooth, some aren’t.

Some are more professional


others. Some are Penton

truly annoying.

Some are simply terrible.

I say toe-may-to, you say

tom-att-o. I say left, you say


So take the following with

a grain of salt but let’s have

some fun.

keeps his cool. Runner-up —

him describing the action.

Colour commentator —

strategic nuances of a

curling game better than

anyone. Runner-up — Kelly

Runner-up — Sara Orlesky,

questions of CFL players.

Program hosts: Rod
