Here for all your needs big and small<br />

Alliance Seed Cleaning<br />

Association opened in November of<br />

1957. For the first 20 years they<br />

didn’t do much more than the<br />

cleaning and treating of cereals.<br />

Over the years there have<br />

been many upgrades, always<br />

growing to serve the community<br />

better.<br />

They now have a testing and<br />

bagging facility that will handle<br />

25 kg bags up to 750 kg mini<br />

bulks. A 90 foot (70 tonne) scale<br />

has been installed along with a<br />

5,000 bushel per hour leg to<br />

handle the large loads.<br />

They can now inoculate peas<br />

and are licensed to apply<br />

Provide on canola, peas and<br />

wheat. A few years ago they<br />

started having feed and basic<br />

veterinary supplies available for<br />

you.<br />

The Alliance Seed Cleaning<br />

received their Warehousing<br />

Standards Certificate in 1999.<br />

During their busy times they<br />

will employ up to six people.<br />

They want you to know that they<br />

208 3 Ave E Alliance, AB (780) 879-3927<br />

www.allianceseedfeed.com<br />

are here for all your needs big and<br />

small.<br />

Diverse service for 15 years<br />

There is always something new<br />

when it comes to the Alliance based<br />

shop, Main Street Medley.<br />

The business specializes in a<br />

number of unique services like<br />

embroidery, signs, engraving, canvas<br />

wraps, printing, full-colour heat<br />

transfers, and custom T-Shirts.<br />

They also use a direct-to-garment<br />

printer for specialized orders and a<br />

large scale printer that can print up<br />

to a 4’ x 8’.<br />

Main Street Medley is<br />

more than happy to do<br />

custom orders and ship anywhere<br />

on top of their other<br />

services.<br />

The Back 40 Button<br />

Company was an idea that<br />

spurred from the use of their<br />

back room where they make<br />

pinback buttons, button magnets,<br />

and coasters.<br />

Owner Laurie Fuller attributes<br />

15 successful years in<br />

business to the diverse<br />

options they provide customers as<br />

well as their consistent friendly<br />

attitude.<br />

“I think the diversity plus our customer<br />

service – We have a lot of<br />

repeat customers. We treat everybody<br />

the same whether they order 1<br />

item or 100. Each order is the same to<br />

us,” said Fuller.<br />

Currently four staff, including<br />

Laurie, run the facility.<br />

It all started when Laurie and her<br />

husband became empty nesters,<br />

eager to work together.<br />

Laurie started with sublimation<br />

and signage in the basement of their<br />

home.<br />

Eventually, Laurie’s husband<br />

switched jobs in the oil company<br />

where they wouldn’t allow wives on<br />

the lease site.<br />

This was where they bought the<br />

current building they are in<br />

now on main street, hence<br />

the name ‘Main Street<br />

Medley’.<br />

Later, they bought the<br />

Gas Co-op next door to<br />

expand their business and<br />

number of services.<br />

“You never know what<br />

you’ll find here. If you come<br />

in one day it may not be<br />

here the next and we might<br />

not be getting any more in<br />

so if you like it, you better<br />

buy it,” said Fuller.

Fun, safe environment for shooting practice<br />

It could be said that the Legacy<br />

Pistol Range Inc. and the Alberta<br />

Rangers is one of Paintearth County’s<br />

best kept secrets!<br />

Established on the ranch in 2015,<br />

the range’s location is SW-18-35-11-W4,<br />

along Lake Thelma Rd., just east of<br />

RR#120.<br />

The idea stemmed from the love of<br />

western history - both factual and fictional,<br />

a western lifestyle which we<br />

cultivate with a deep-rooted fascination<br />

for the shooting sports.<br />

The thought behind using the<br />

“Alberta Rangers” moniker for our<br />

group goes back to the colourful time<br />

in Alberta’s past (circa 1885) while<br />

during a period of unrest amongst her<br />

inhabitants, the Rocky Mountain<br />

Rangers came together to help keep<br />

the peace.<br />

These rangers came from mixed<br />

backgrounds. Some were cowboys<br />

who came up here with the cattle<br />

drives, others were storekeepers, exmounties,<br />

ranchers, adventurers and<br />

others with various stories. What they<br />

all had in common was that they<br />

could all shoot and they could all ride!<br />

Although any serious actions were<br />

not realized back in the day, we<br />

thought their spirit was worth holding<br />

onto and therefore celebrating.<br />

We are promoting the Legacy Pistol<br />

Range Inc., the home of the “Alberta<br />

Rangers”, as a safe and fun environment<br />

to gather and practice the<br />

shooting sports including target practice,<br />

rifle shooting up to a 308, small<br />

ALBERTA<br />

LEGACY PISTOL RANGE INC.<br />

R A N G E R S<br />

bore, and black powder, knife and axe<br />

throwing, cowboy action and archery,<br />

plus all sorts of other possibilities.<br />

We are also proud and excited to<br />

introduce the “Alberta Rangers<br />

Association” which will enable us to<br />

include cowboy mounted shooting -<br />

one of North America’s fastest<br />

growing equestrian sports.<br />

If you are an experienced shooter or<br />

someone considering something new,<br />

we encourage you to come and check<br />

us out! Not only does it make great<br />

therapy, but shooting also practiced in<br />

a safe and responsible manner can be<br />

an awesome activity for groups, the<br />

individual or the entire family to<br />

enjoy.<br />

Oh, Did I mention there is overnight<br />

primitive camping available upon<br />

request?<br />

See you on the range!<br />

Good people key to family-run bar<br />

When visiting a small town, it is<br />

often the people you meet that make<br />

the community and the experience<br />

special.<br />

Byemoor is no exception to this and<br />

the family run establishment is a fantastic<br />

place to meet with friends and<br />

share laughter while enjoying a delicious<br />

meal and drink.<br />

Joyce Campbell and daughter<br />

Leslie receive plenty of help from<br />

other family members as well which<br />

makes the business that much more<br />

personal.<br />

They pride themselves on family,<br />

good food, comfortable atmosphere<br />

and personalized service.<br />

In addition to all of your favourites<br />

such as burgers, fries, chicken, fish,<br />

and of course, beer and liquor, there<br />

is also off-sales.<br />

They have a special steak night on<br />

the evening of the annual Bullarama<br />

and also host pizza nights complete<br />

with homemade dough.<br />

Pizza Night is held on every<br />

Satisfaction Guaranteed<br />

If there’s one thing Harold Peters knows very well,<br />

it’s trailers.<br />

Peters has been in the business since 1993, where he<br />

worked for a trailer manufacturer in Delburne before<br />

branching off in 1997 to start his own company,<br />

Horseshoe Trailer manufacturing and repairs.<br />

Peters’ trailer expertise covers a wide range of<br />

subjects including cosmetic work, axle<br />

replacement, brakes and bearings. He is able<br />

to fix horse, stock, RV and flat deck trailers,<br />

and he sees people come from as far away<br />

as Sylvan Lake into Saskatchewan, Amisk<br />

to Brooks and all points in between for his<br />

Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.<br />

All of these things make the<br />

Byemoor Hotel a must-see on your<br />

next trip into town.<br />

trailer services.<br />

“I carry a good inventory of quality parts so people<br />

don’t have to wait,” he says. “I have since increased<br />

the size of the shop and added a tire changer, and will<br />

soon be adding a brake lathe. I believe in good work<br />

and good service.”<br />

Born and raised in Alberta, Peters lives on the farm<br />

with his wife, and has three children and seven<br />

grandchildren. He has been involved with the<br />

Halkirk Bullarama and enjoys the<br />

community spirit of living in Halkirk. “It’s a<br />

great community with great people,” he says.<br />

Checker’d Flag Sports will have it all for you<br />

Kelly Pedersen, Dan Servonnet<br />

and Clayton Job all grew up in and<br />

around Hanna, Ab.<br />

They loved snowmobiling and off<br />

use that passion to make their dream<br />

of owning their own business a<br />

reality and opened an Authorized<br />

in the full line of Stihl products and<br />

Products bought out Arctic Cat.<br />

They are keeping the snowmobiles<br />

under the Arctic Cat name but all<br />

<strong>Business</strong> <strong>Profile</strong> 2018<br />

EnGuard PC Ltd. supports community<br />

Jason and Deedee Smith are<br />

business partners of Enguard PC<br />

Ltd., a company with a drive to do<br />

better not only for themselves but<br />

the community of Hanna.<br />

Enguard PC Ltd. offers both<br />

retail and computer sales as well as<br />

repairs, technology recycling, and<br />

workshops.<br />

Jason’s computer career began as<br />

a lumber yard hand. The company<br />

brought in a computer system<br />

which he found he understood how<br />

it worked.<br />

“I just ran through the manuals<br />

and asked what was going on and<br />

was able to implement their<br />

system,” said Jason.<br />

The company that sold the<br />

system then hired Jason as a support<br />

staff and software trainer. He<br />

harbours both retail experience<br />

and computer experience from<br />

these jobs.<br />

This idea eventually started as a<br />

small business in Jason’s mother’s<br />

basement before moving to Hanna<br />

where he worked out of a single<br />

office focusing on on-site repairs.<br />

This single office space grew to<br />

50 square feet of retail floor space<br />

and then again to 1,100 square feet.<br />

November 15th, 2011 was the day<br />

EnGuard opened to the public in<br />

Hanna.<br />

Jason chose Hanna because the<br />

busy bustle of Edmonton was hard<br />

to break into and his son lived in<br />

Hanna.<br />

He came by for a weekend visit<br />

and helped various people with<br />

their computer problems around<br />

town.<br />

Jason realized there was a large<br />

need and an opportunity for these<br />

services in and around Hanna.<br />

The company now offers one-onone<br />

training for those that are not<br />

computer literate or have simple<br />

questions that may need additional<br />

guidance.<br />

Clients are asked to provide a list<br />

of questions they would like<br />

answered and then Jason will come<br />

up with an itinerary to focus on the<br />

topics they want to cover when he<br />

meets with a client.<br />

Clients have the option of coming<br />

to the business with their tech or<br />

can have Jason arrive at their<br />

home for support when doing this<br />

one-on-one session.<br />

From computer safety to<br />

uploading photos onto a USB stick,<br />

EnGuard PC Ltd. will do their best<br />

to help.<br />

Over-the-counter training is<br />

another style of education used<br />

when discussing computer issues<br />

with clientele.<br />

“It’s just a basic understanding<br />

that people need and we do a lot of<br />

over-the-counter training we call<br />

it, where somebody comes in and<br />

they have one little question and<br />

half an hour later they have a<br />

better understanding of it. For<br />

example, how the internet works or<br />

what a browser is,” said Jason.<br />

“We’ve gone up as complex as<br />

dealing with many different<br />

accounting software packages.”<br />

This line of work is something<br />

that just comes natural to Jason.<br />

“It’s simple, it doesn’t stress me<br />

out, I don’t panic over problems.<br />

Not computer related anyways,”<br />

laughed Jason. “It works, it clicks<br />

well.”<br />

He used to get in trouble by<br />

‘messing around’ with the school<br />

computers while in highschool and<br />

hasn’t stopped dealing with computers<br />

since.<br />

A favourite part of his passion is<br />

when he can build new computers<br />

from a large number of parts which<br />

gives him a sense of<br />

accomplishment.<br />

The couple also loves to help customers<br />

reach their goals.<br />

As for community spirit, the<br />

couple have dived into community<br />

initiatives, offering support wherever<br />

they can.<br />

Jason is the president of the local<br />

food bank where EnGuard conducts<br />

at least 3 food drives a year.<br />

They also contribute to the<br />

library summer reading program<br />

and the Chamber of Commerce<br />

where Jason just stepped down<br />

from the board after five years of<br />

service.<br />

“If you come to me and you are<br />

running a local program, we’ll help<br />

you out in some way. We won’t give<br />

you cash but we would offer a<br />

product or prize,” he said.<br />

“Anywhere we can help.”<br />

EnGuard PC Ltd. is Hanna’s One-<br />

Stop Computer Shop for all your<br />

computer needs and questions.

He worked in the oil<br />

patch where he sustained<br />

a serious injury<br />

that led him to the<br />

chiropractor.<br />

“I couldn’t believe<br />

how fast I<br />

responded. It was<br />

just like ‘Whoa, that<br />

is amazing’. That is the<br />

first bad thing that<br />

happened to me in my<br />

life in terms of severity<br />

how it came around,” said Larson.<br />

5000 sq. ft. of unique gifts and collectables<br />

The Irma Home and Garden<br />

Centre was a lumber store when Ron<br />

and Aletha Dempsey purchased it in<br />

1978.<br />

It continued on as a lumber store<br />

through the boom of the 1980’s<br />

with lawn and garden supplies<br />

only a small part of it. When the<br />

lumber business started to die<br />

out, Ron and his wife Aletha<br />

decided to expand the garden<br />

centre.<br />

Aletha passed away 13 years<br />

ago but Ron continued to grow<br />

and expand the business.<br />

Ron does not like to buy in<br />

large quantities, he likes to buy<br />

in ‘ones and twos’ so that each<br />

customer can know that they are<br />

getting something unique.<br />

The store has over 5000 square feet<br />

of display space. This is needed for<br />

the large amount of merchandise<br />

that it has.<br />

They carry lawn fountains, arbors,<br />

lawn benches and much more for the<br />

garden.<br />

There is home and giftware available<br />

also, John Deere collectibles,<br />

Bernie Brown pottery, unique lamps,<br />

picture frames and large clocks to<br />

give you a small sample of what is<br />

there.<br />

The Centre is open year round and<br />

Ron likes to keep the seasonal merchandise<br />

in the season. This means<br />

that you won’t find the Christmas<br />

stock available until after<br />

Remembrance Day, but what you<br />

find will be unique and different.<br />

Irma Home and Garden will be<br />

having a open house Sunday,<br />

November 18th from 11am till 4pm<br />

to showcase some new unique items<br />

that have arrived in time to stimulate<br />

some holiday shopping a little<br />

early this year.<br />

The Centre is located on Highway<br />

14 at the north end of the town of<br />

Irma. Monday to Friday open 9-12<br />

and 1-5:30; Saturday closing at 5 pm;<br />

Big ‘Happy Face’<br />

welcomes customers<br />

Bill Rock and his wife Kim opened the<br />

Amisk C-Store in May of 2013. They knew<br />

there was a need for this type of convenience<br />

store in the area so they decided to<br />

fill that need.<br />

The store is open from 6 am to 7 pm<br />

daily. They provide the community with<br />

basic groceries, take out foods and lots of<br />

candy. The large variety of sandwiches<br />

and subs, along with salads and hot dogs<br />

are all homemade in-store. They also sell<br />

homemade baking.<br />

They like to be part of the community<br />

events and provide the subs for the sub<br />

day at the local elementary school.<br />

The store has nine part-time employees.<br />

Bill Rock is also the go-to plumber for<br />

the area with six employees working for<br />

him in the service part of that. He also<br />

sells a small amount of plumbing supplies<br />

at the back of the store.<br />

The Amisk C-Store is located on<br />

Highway 13 in Amisk, Ab., so if<br />

you want good old-fashioned<br />

friendly service and yummy<br />

homemade food, drive on down<br />

and look for the Big Happy Face.<br />

Your business matters!<br />

The Conservative Party of<br />

Canada understands the<br />

importance to the Canadian<br />

economy of small and<br />

medium-sized businesses.<br />

Eighty per cent of jobs for<br />

Canadian workers are created<br />

by these companies.<br />

In many of the largest and<br />

smallest communities across<br />

Canada, small business<br />

owners are our job creators<br />

and community builders. As<br />

the official Opposition Party<br />

in the House of Commons,<br />

we will continue to voice<br />

their concerns.<br />

In Battle River-Crowfoot,<br />

we can clearly see the importance<br />

of smaller firms in our<br />

communities. For example,<br />

we have a strong agricultural<br />

base made up of mostly<br />

small family-run businesses.<br />

These businesses support<br />

our agricultural industry<br />

and we have a growing<br />

number of businesses that<br />

process our products giving<br />

them added value.<br />

Today, with the Internet,<br />

entrepreneurs right here in<br />

our riding are not limited in<br />

the world-wide clients we<br />

can serve. Our local companies<br />

are searching - and<br />

finding - these opportunities.<br />

It is hard work and we can<br />

be proud of their successes.<br />

They help provide local jobs.<br />

These folks are in every village,<br />

town and remote area<br />

in our large geographic<br />

riding.<br />

In every community in<br />

our riding we have forwardlooking<br />

entrepreneurs who<br />

instill in all of us a sense of<br />

optimism and confidence.<br />

We will do our ancestors<br />

proud by continuing to build<br />

our region of Alberta and<br />

ensure that the next generation<br />

of entrepreneurs have<br />

all the resources, facilities,<br />

community support, and<br />

many other tools that we<br />

need.

Lougheed has something to offer in all seasons<br />

Incorporated in 1911, the Village was named<br />

after the late Senator James Lougheed, grandfather<br />

to former Premier Peter Lougheed.<br />

“The Friendly Village”, with a population of<br />

almost 300, located along Hwy 13 and on the<br />

Canadian Pacific Railway, is an hour’s drive east<br />

of Camrose, and two hours southeast of<br />

Edmonton.<br />

Lougheed’s trading area has a diversified economic<br />

base, with traditional roots in both<br />

agriculture and the oilfield industry, and has<br />

promise for future growth and prosperity.<br />

Lougheed is home to both commercial and<br />

industrial business, providing products and services<br />

to the community and area, including a<br />

grocery store, banking, Diamond J Bakery, costume<br />

rental, special events rental, machinery<br />

dealerships, agri-retail business, and water well<br />

drilling.<br />

The Lougheed Seed Cleaning Plant has built a<br />

new modernized facility, opening in 2017 and<br />

greatly adding to the northern horizon of the<br />

village.<br />

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch in<br />

Lougheed is named in remembrance of Victoria<br />

Cross recipient, C.J. Kinross . Private Kinross’s<br />

citation shows that “throughout the day he<br />

showed marvelous coolness and courage,<br />

fighting with the utmost aggressiveness against<br />

heavy odds until he was seriously wounded.”<br />

Private Kinross single-handedly knocked out a<br />

machine gun crew.<br />

The Legion Hall’s “Wall of Honour” proudly<br />

displays the framed photos and biographies of<br />

over 60 Veterans from the Lougheed area,<br />

including Victoria Cross recipient C.J. Kinross,<br />

immortalizing those who participated in the<br />

World Wars. The Wall of Honour is a<br />

unique and cherished statement to the<br />

pride of this community and the honour<br />

bestowed for our military residents.<br />

If you are in the area, make sure to stop<br />

in and enjoy the food and warm hospitality.<br />

For residents and visitors alike, the Village<br />

has something to offer in all seasons.<br />

Spring, summer and fall, you will find two<br />

campgrounds and picnic locations, trout<br />

pond, model aircraft field, museum, four<br />

regulation baseball diamonds, a walking<br />

trail and an annual Agricultural Fair held<br />

in August.<br />

During the winter, the “hub of activity” is<br />

at the Lougheed Field House with its<br />

24-hour gym and a variety of ongoing activities<br />

and indoor sports, as well as the curling<br />

rink. Olympic champion, Kevin Martin<br />

started his curling career in Lougheed<br />

throwing rocks many nights after school.<br />

Lougheed has a very active community life,<br />

with ample opportunity to participate in the<br />

Village’s many community service organizations<br />

and social groups. Bingos, socials and other community<br />

events are held in the community hall, as<br />

well as the Seniors’ Centre and Lions’ Den.<br />

The Community Society hosts an old-fashion<br />

Christmas every year. On a Saturday before<br />

Christmas, you can join the fun for a tree<br />

decorating contest, old fashioned games,<br />

exhibits, Mrs. Claus has a kitchen with<br />

goodies and, of course, Santa Claus makes<br />

an appearance to present the children with<br />

goodies.<br />

Within the last few years, Lougheed has<br />

become home to the largest population of<br />

‘Mexican Mennonites’ within the Flagstaff<br />

region. To accommodate this population as<br />

they deal with their new Canadian home,<br />

the citizens of Lougheed have initiated<br />

events and enterprises to ensure a smooth<br />

transition to their new chosen home.<br />

Lougheed, “The Friendly Village”, has<br />

room to grow, with both residential and<br />

commercial lots available for development.<br />

Leader in oil well maintenance and construction<br />

The basics of oil drilling haven’t<br />

changed much since the black gold<br />

was first discovered lurking underneath<br />

the Alberta prairie. You drill a<br />

hole into the ground, and (hopefully)<br />

you get oil.<br />

Today, we rely on modern technology<br />

to help us locate, evaluate,<br />

drill, pump and abandon oil wells.<br />

More and more, how well a company<br />

involved in the progress is a factor in<br />

their ability to grow and survive.<br />

Pyramid Corporation is a North<br />

American leader in oil well maintenance<br />

and construction, specializing<br />

in measurement and instrumentation<br />

technology. Not only is Pyramid<br />

leading the way in well monitoring<br />

technology, they are helping to pioneer<br />

new advances to increase safety,<br />

well throughput and getting the most<br />

out of the life of a well.<br />

Pyramid was founded in 1993 in<br />

Nisku, Alberta. The Coronation<br />

office, managed by Lee Martin, was<br />

one of the first field offices established<br />

by the company.<br />

Martin has seen this shift in well<br />

Technology upgrades<br />

Since 2008, Brad Wohlgemuth,<br />

owner of AutoTrust Stettler, has seen<br />

a growing level of comfort when it<br />

comes to customers and their vehicles<br />

thanks to advancements in<br />

technology.<br />

The goal has always been<br />

to instill this confidence<br />

but with technology, it<br />

has made that process<br />

much simpler.<br />

“Over the years we have<br />

probably invested in 10 Scan Tools<br />

and are trying to stay on top of some<br />

leading edge techniques and tools<br />

that aren’t readily available in the<br />

industry. That has given us a real<br />

advantage with finding some of the<br />

monitoring -- what was once accomplished<br />

key systems using a computer,<br />

offering many levels of control and<br />

safety unimagined in years past.<br />

The key to Pyramid’s success is its<br />

people according to Martin. Treating<br />

them like human beings and<br />

ensuring retention of talented people<br />

is what’s kept Pyramid on the<br />

forefront.<br />

Ensuring the loyalty of customers<br />

is also key -- it’s repeat business and<br />

being a positive presence in the community<br />

that keeps companies like<br />

Pyramid in business.<br />

“Keep visiting them, get to know<br />

them,” says Martin, sharing the<br />

secret of keeping satisfied clients.<br />

Keeping ahead of the curve is vital<br />

for any company. Influencing the<br />

next generation of monitoring and<br />

safety technology is what Pyramid<br />

does best.<br />

They are able send pictures and<br />

He has also invested in other specialty<br />

tools that help see the overall<br />

health of the engine before there is<br />

even trouble with it.<br />

If a customer is curious<br />

about this, they have the<br />

means to tell you.<br />

A regular deal known<br />

as the 5 for 3 Program means<br />

that a customer buys 5 oil changes<br />

your mom’s car or your grandma’s<br />

car, you can do that.”<br />

Friday Night Buffets a new favourite<br />

With a passion for cooking from a<br />

young age, Brenda (Murray) Brinson<br />

began her journey being born and<br />

raised on a farm in Saskatchewan.<br />

Her mother and grandmother<br />

inspired her to follow her dreams<br />

where her career in the food industry<br />

began at only 16-years-old.<br />

Brinson moved to Airdrie when<br />

she was 19. She worked under a chef<br />

in a local restaurant.<br />

This was where she<br />

gained a wealth of other<br />

useful skills like bartending,<br />

waiting tables<br />

and, of course, dish<br />

washing.<br />

In 1990, she made the<br />

decision to move to Stettler<br />

in pursuit of continued<br />

food experience working<br />

at the Town Pump,<br />

Smitty’s Restaurant and<br />

the Stettler Hospital.<br />

By 1994, she received<br />

her Journeyman Ticket<br />

with a red seal; this<br />

achievement being an interprovincial<br />

standard of excellence that is<br />

recognized across Canada.<br />

Brinson owned and operated the<br />

Sandwich Patch from 1994 to 1998<br />

then began her catering side of the<br />

business in 2001.<br />

The summer of 2013 was a memorable<br />

one for Brinson as she was able<br />

to purchase Maggie Joe’s Catering<br />

Cafe on Main Street in Stettler.<br />

Brenda’s<br />

Cozy Cafe<br />

Visit our Facebook page for full menus<br />

4913 - 50 th St. Stettler, AB • 403-742-8166<br />

October 1, 2013 marked the humble<br />

beginning of Brenda’s Cozy Cafe.<br />

The business has grown exponentially<br />

thanks to the community<br />

support provided by the residents of<br />

Stettler.<br />

Five years later, the business has<br />

10 to 12 employees on staff.<br />

A favourite put on by the local<br />

business is the Friday Night Buffet<br />

where each week is a new spin on<br />

classic dishes.<br />

Some previous buffets<br />

focused on Roast Beef and<br />

Turkey dishes, Italian food,<br />

Ribs and Chicken and<br />

Mexican cuisine.<br />

<strong>Business</strong> hours are from<br />

8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Check<br />

their Facebook Page @<br />

BrendasCozyCafe for updates<br />

on upcoming buffets.<br />

Brenda hopes you enjoy<br />

your dining experience as<br />

much as she enjoys creating<br />

and serving exciting new<br />

dishes.

Bringing<br />

Amazing<br />

Meals<br />

Home<br />

Any busy person knows that a<br />

good, hearty meal can sometimes be<br />

hard to come by.<br />

That is why the owner of Teresa’s<br />

in Donalda came up with the more<br />

than perfect solution to this problem.<br />

Teresa Kneeland has been surrounded<br />

by food her entire life. She<br />

was raised on a farm near Donalda<br />

where her parents operated a small<br />

grain and hog operation. Cows and<br />

chickens would often roam about the<br />

property as well.<br />

A large garden would help feed her<br />

relatively large family as money<br />

would run tight.<br />

As a young girl, she associated food<br />

with both happy and sad memories.<br />

“I loved the memories, smiles and<br />

laughter that form around a shared<br />

meal,” said Kneeland. “One of my<br />

fondest memories as a child was<br />

when the harvest crew would gather<br />

in a dusty field to eat. We would sit,<br />

eat and laugh. I loved those moments,<br />

the togetherness. Many rural folks<br />

will tell you the same<br />

stories.”<br />

Her mother had a job<br />

off the farm so it was up<br />

to Teresa to start<br />

cooking. She was<br />

responsible for canning,<br />

cooking, and baking as<br />

early as 10-years-old.<br />

She never pursued<br />

post secondary education<br />

in foods but still<br />

followed her passion,<br />

creating unique and<br />

colourful dishes that are made of<br />

mostly local ingredients.<br />

“We use as many local products as<br />

we can. We deal a lot with the hutterite<br />

colony out here and they’ve<br />

been amazing to me. Local butcher<br />

shop in Bashaw we deal with as well.<br />

We try to source as many local products<br />

as we can,” she continued.<br />

She was a single mom who was the<br />

owner of a grocery store which failed<br />

but that failure pointed her in the<br />

direction of following her passion for<br />

cooking.<br />

She dabbled in catering and then<br />

worked out of her own kitchen before<br />

entering cooking venues. In 2012, she<br />

built the building she works out of<br />

today.<br />

To her, a dish is not just a meal but<br />

an experience in and of itself.<br />

“I gauge my success on a product<br />

through how people talk about it<br />

after and if they aren’t saying it’s<br />

wonderful and amazing I go back to<br />

the drawing board. I make sure I get<br />

that reaction and we do. My staff is<br />

amazing as well,” said Kneeland.<br />

This past year was when the business<br />

headed in the direction of frozen<br />

meals.<br />

They take all main and side dishes<br />

from the catering menu and put them<br />

into frozen food containers that<br />

anyone can take home.<br />

“It started out that I was making a<br />

little bit for seniors around Stettler<br />

because they don’t eat well and it<br />

kills me if people don’t eat well,”<br />

laughed Kneeland. “I dabbled in it<br />

and then last year I had my business<br />

partner approach me and asked me if<br />

I wanted to dive into this and we did.”<br />

Kneeland has a goal of having multiple<br />

stations set up across Alberta<br />

within 5 years.<br />

Teresa’s offers catering, frozen<br />

meals, and desserts, with a retail<br />

front to boot.<br />

Anyone can find her food at four<br />

other locations for on-the-go<br />

frozen food as well as an<br />

online store<br />

(TERESASFOOD.com).<br />

They run a junior high<br />

cooking program for the<br />

school in Donalda where<br />

they serve the entire school<br />

which happens once a week<br />

in January.<br />

Teresa’s has 6 full-time and<br />

10 to 12 part time workers on<br />

staff for all of your culinary<br />

needs.

Maximum Hearing, Maximum Trust<br />

Although new to Three Hills,<br />

Maxine Williams-Herbert, a<br />

Registered Hearing Aid Practitioner<br />

and owner of Maximum Hearing, is<br />

not new to living in a rural community<br />

having grown up on a small<br />

farm in the Edmonton area.<br />

After graduating High School, she<br />

moved to Edmonton where in 1986<br />

she was given the opportunity to join<br />

The Bay Hearing Aid Centre as a<br />

trainee.<br />

Once she achieved her accreditations,<br />

she travelled throughout<br />

northern Alberta establishing<br />

hearing aid clinics and working with<br />

local health units to provide<br />

care to the residents<br />

of various communities.<br />

“There is no substitute<br />

to hearing the simple<br />

sounds of life – a bird<br />

singing, the rainfall, or the<br />

sound of a loved one<br />

sharing the events of the<br />

day,” said Williams-Herbert. “I feel<br />

blessed that I have had the opportunity<br />

over the past 30 years to<br />

reintroduce those sounds to so many.<br />

The rewards are measured in tears<br />

of joy and smiles of relief.<br />

In 1997, Williams-Herbert accepted<br />

a position to open a new clinic in<br />

Calgary.<br />

Her last position was at the<br />

Calgary Ear Centre where she<br />

worked with a team of specialists<br />

providing a one-stop approach to<br />

hearing health care, offering everything<br />

from counselling, Tinnitus<br />

management, hearing aids, to surgical<br />

solutions for clients.<br />

Although she found this work<br />

extremely rewarding, she also found<br />

the pace of an ever-growing city quite<br />

overwhelming and longed to slow<br />

things down. That was when she visited<br />

Three Hills for the first time.<br />

After spending 30+ years working<br />

for someone else, she decided it was<br />

time to venture out on her own.<br />

Shortly after, Maximum Hearing<br />

was created.<br />

New space offers numerous improvements<br />

Big city technology, small town service.<br />

That’s our motto at Prairie Vision.<br />

Since we moved into our new and<br />

improved location off hi-way 41, we have<br />

been fortunate enough to expand and<br />

prosper. We now employ 5 licensed<br />

Optometrists and have 14 assistants on<br />

our team. Our new space offers<br />

numerous improvements, which allows<br />

us to serve our patients and customers<br />

even better as we move forward! We have<br />

doubled the number of exam rooms for a<br />

total of six. This will allow our doctors to<br />

care for more patients, reduce waiting<br />

time and help you get on with your day.<br />

An accommodating elevator will take<br />

you to our second floor where you will be<br />

greeted by our welcoming front desk<br />

staff. The new and improved waiting<br />

unique “play house” for your little ones;<br />

Prairie Vision continues to host an onsite<br />

lab to make selected prescriptions on a<br />

same day basis. All of our cutting edge<br />

technology will continue to be available<br />

in our new space. Instruments such as<br />

the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer, the<br />

Optical Coherence Tomographer and our<br />

retina imaging system (California<br />

Optomap) will provide specialized testing<br />

for glaucoma and other ocular diseases.<br />

We now have an exam room that allows<br />

for wheel chair accessible eye exams.<br />

This means there will be less transferring<br />

of these patients using wheelchairs<br />

into the exam room chair than previous.<br />

we also offer Vision Therapy; we<br />

proudly employ the first Canadian certified<br />

vision therapist from Alberta.<br />

Dr. Weeks has been through the<br />

BSE crisis alongside the cattle<br />

producers.<br />

major emphasis is on working with<br />

herds.<br />

With the goal of being able to provide<br />

the eastern side of the province<br />

of Alberta with veterinary services<br />

with more vets and increased staff<br />

Dr. weeks has since expanded with a<br />

state of the art facility, the<br />

Skin Care Line a dream come true<br />

Diana Wilson, a Mary Kay representative<br />

from Castor, Ab. shares the<br />

wonderful, real-world effects the<br />

Mary Kay Skin Care Line<br />

has done for its customers.<br />

Wilson has been using<br />

the product for many years,<br />

attesting to the long-term<br />

effects it has on your skin.<br />

A friend asked if she<br />

wanted to start selling it as<br />

a side business which she<br />

took from there.<br />

Mary Kay is a trusted<br />

household name and covers<br />

specialized skin care and<br />

makeup for both men and<br />

women but Wilson loves the skin<br />

care line for its many benefits.<br />

Diana Wilson<br />

“Once they’ve tried the product…<br />

It speaks for itself like it actually sells<br />

itself because it’s so good,” said<br />

Wilson. “It’s all very good<br />

quality.”<br />

Customers are 100%<br />

guaranteed no matter the<br />

time frame which is unique<br />

to the company.<br />

“If you’ve had a product<br />

from say 10 years ago or<br />

whatever and found it in<br />

your drawer and wanted<br />

credit for it, you can,” said<br />

Wilson. “If you used something<br />

for 6 months and<br />

decide you don’t like it, it’s<br />

still guaranteed you can bring it back<br />

whatever it is.”<br />

Wilson enjoys serving her customers<br />

and hearing about their first<br />

time experiences hearing how<br />

impressed they are about the<br />

product.<br />

A nice thing about working as a<br />

consultant for Mary K is the freedom<br />

to host events whenever you want<br />

and to purchase products at a lower<br />

cost. No pressuring involved.<br />

“The reason I went in to this is like<br />

because I didn’t want to pressure<br />

people to buy it so that’s why if I have<br />

an open house, people can just come<br />

and go if they want to,” she said.

Happy and grateful for all the great support<br />

Lynn Sabo wanted to own a<br />

second hand book store since she<br />

was a teenager.<br />

Seeing that there was<br />

no book stores for a large<br />

area around Castor she<br />

decided that this was a<br />

good time to go for her<br />

dream.<br />

In Sept. 2017 she<br />

opened The Purple<br />

Platypus.<br />

The name is derived<br />

from a combination of<br />

Lynn’s favorite color,<br />

purple, and her husband’s<br />

fascination with<br />

that funny little<br />

Australian creature, the<br />

platypus.<br />

She raided her own collection<br />

of books to start<br />

the store and now donations<br />

and her exchange<br />

program keep it growing.<br />

The exchange program lets you<br />

bring in and exchange your books<br />

Secondhand Bookstore<br />

for in store credit on other books.<br />

The store has a wide variety of<br />

books, including children’s books<br />

from the baby books to<br />

young adult and all kinds<br />

of adult fiction and non<br />

fiction books, everything<br />

from old westerns to the<br />

most current titles.<br />

They even have audio<br />

books for those who like<br />

to listen to their books.<br />

The books are priced at<br />

one half the original<br />

price on the book.<br />

There is also a book<br />

club and a writing group<br />

associated with the store.<br />

Lynn is very happy<br />

and grateful for all the<br />

great support she has<br />

received from the community<br />

in this first year<br />

of being open.<br />

Community demand filled<br />

Eric and Justine Comeau recently<br />

married last year with the intention<br />

of living in the Consort area.<br />

As they were making plans to say<br />

‘I do’, they were also designing and<br />

constructing a completely unique,<br />

diversified liquor store – one unlike<br />

anywhere in East Central Alberta.<br />

There was no shortage of support<br />

as both sides of the family were<br />

useful in the vision of the new store.<br />

“We thought about it for a long<br />

time and then finally the time came<br />

where the land was available<br />

because we put it right beside the<br />

hotel in town because we wanted<br />

that lot. As soon as we heard there<br />

was more than one person looking<br />

for this lot, we jumped on it and<br />

bought it,” said Eric.<br />

Buffalo Trail liquor opened on<br />

March 23, 2017 where they haven’t<br />

looked back. The couple later married<br />

in August.<br />

Although a learning curve, the<br />

pair have been innovative in their<br />

approach to service, supporting a<br />

new loyalty program where the more<br />

you shop, the more you get back.<br />

“The word is spreading and that’s<br />

good,” Eric continued.<br />

The Growler Bar serves draft beer<br />

as well as other drinks on tap for<br />

customers to explore.<br />

The Alberta Gaming and LIquor<br />

Commission (AGLC) said it was the<br />

first one in the eastern corridor.<br />

“There were a few things in our<br />

stores that are best sellers for years<br />

and this is our way of showing them<br />

something else,” Eric said.<br />

There is always four different<br />

beers on tap while other times there<br />

may be ciders or sangria or wine.<br />

The growing Alberta craft beer<br />

industry has significantly grown<br />

making this bar a perfect way to<br />

showcase local brews as well.<br />

“With our store, the idea was to<br />

bring something totally different to<br />

such rural area period. We wanted to<br />

bring in these thing that nobody was<br />

seeing outside of like Red Deer. We’re<br />

bringing in these new concepts, craft<br />

beer, craft liquor and all these local<br />

products to redefine the liquor<br />

industry in Consort,” added Justine.<br />

The Buffalo Trail Liquor Store is<br />

open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on<br />

Weekdays and 11 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on<br />

Weekends.<br />

no exception.<br />

competitive.<br />

Owner and manager Jason Lee<br />

makes sure that,<br />

like any grocery<br />

store,<br />

produce is<br />

fresh, shelves<br />

are stocked,<br />

and the store<br />

is ready for<br />

business.<br />

A number of<br />

items can be<br />

found gracing<br />

the shelves<br />

including a<br />

large selection<br />

of meat in<br />

their butcher<br />

section.<br />

He would work between 12 and 14<br />

hours a day.<br />

Lee and his family decided to move<br />

Canada in search of a better life as<br />

Lee did not wish his daughter to go<br />

through the same cycle as he did.<br />

They began their new life in<br />

Grand Prairie where<br />

they ran a liquor<br />

store.<br />

Due to the high<br />

amount of crime and<br />

economic pressures,<br />

they searched again<br />

and found the AG<br />

Foods Store in<br />

Coronation.<br />

The family business<br />

remains strong and<br />

steady, just as Lee had<br />

hoped.<br />

<strong>Business</strong> <strong>Profile</strong> 2018<br />

Fifty-four years of service to the community<br />

The fact that Coronation OK Tire<br />

has been here 54 years is an achievement<br />

Janet Zimmer is very proud of.<br />

“Lorne was an entrepreneur. In<br />

1964 we came with absolutely<br />

nothing and built this business to<br />

what it is today,” Zimmer<br />

said.<br />

Over the years, business<br />

grew steadily to<br />

warrant building a new<br />

shop in 1977, where the<br />

business is located today.<br />

With Lorne’s passing in<br />

2012 Janet continues to<br />

run the business with the<br />

help of son Mark Zimmer<br />

and long time employees<br />

Jim Campion who has<br />

been with the company<br />

for 52 years, Susan Wills<br />

for 16 years, Terry<br />

Dawson for 38 years,<br />

Walter Jaraway who has<br />

Lamontagne & Son Holdings Ltd.<br />

Maurice and Marion Lamontagne<br />

started this company over 50 years<br />

ago, hauling grain and gravel in the<br />

Coronation area. Their son Dennis<br />

and his sister Vonda are managing<br />

the company now.<br />

been with us now 16 years, Carl<br />

Beattie for 4 years and Ryan Taylor<br />

who has joined us August of this<br />

year.<br />

The company continues to serve<br />

Coronation and the surrounding<br />

They are based in Coronation but<br />

will go throughout east central<br />

Alberta.<br />

They have three trucks,<br />

one a super B train that is<br />

used mostly for grain<br />

area with tire needs and oil changes,<br />

in the shop, on the farm, from semi<br />

to a car - they look after them all as<br />

well as taking after hour call outs.<br />

“I have been pleased to have the<br />

business and I am very proud of<br />

Lorne for doing<br />

what he did in<br />

taking the initial<br />

risk. His motto was<br />

“you have to spend<br />

money to make<br />

money,” Janet said.<br />

“It’s been a wonderful<br />

experience.<br />

The customers<br />

have been great<br />

and the business<br />

has been good.”<br />

The company in<br />

turn, also supports<br />

the community by<br />

sponsoring the<br />
