Hello! I hope that everyone’s property survived the big wind storm on Thursday! Our pool took a direct hit, but we were grateful it didn’t fly into anybody’s house or vehicle. What wacky weather!
The black dog is still wandering around Standard, injured and hungry. A human trap has been set at Traci and Michael Rasmussen’s place, with medication to aid in the dog’s healing. Cats have been spotted near the trap and medication, which could lead to a cat becoming fatally ill. If you live in the vicinity, please try to keep your cats home until the dog has been caught, to ensure no animal inadvertently becomes ill.
Early in the morning of March 10 an alarm was sounding in the Agrium Standard Terminal. This was a non-emergency alarm, but a computer malfunction. If you have questions please phone 403-644-3883 or contact Kelly Ribling at 403-966-3169. If the alarm sounds again in the night, you are asked to contact Kelly. They apologize for the disturbance and want to ensure everyone that it was not a hazardous situation and nobody was at risk.
