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.
