RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS READY TO EMBARK ON FIRST PLAYOFF RUN

The Senior Rustlers face the Sylvan Lake Pirates to kick off the 2019 NCHL Playoffs

After a successful inaugural season in the North Central Hockey League, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers are set to take on the other new kids on the block, the Sylvan Lake Pirates in the first round of the NCHL playoffs.

The second-place Rustlers drew the seventh-place Pirates in the first round, a fitting matchup for the Central Alberta rivals both looking to make a mark in their first NCHL seasons.

With home-ice advantage, Red Deer will host Sylvan Lake for Games 1 and 2 of the best-of-five series on Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27.

Saturday’s game is set for 12:30pm at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre. To celebrate the very first playoff game for both teams, admission to the game will be free for all fans, with a guaranteed $500 take-home prize for the 50/50.

Game 2 goes Sunday night at 7:30pm at the Collicutt Centre, with free admission for season ticket holders.

Games 3 and 4 are slated for February 2nd and 3rd in Sylvan Lake, with Game 5 scheduled for February 8 at the Penhold Regional Multiplex.

The Results have Convinced Me

The Results have Convinced Me

I have been diabetic for a while but have never cared much about monitoring it. Finally, my doctor got upset at me and suggested I pay more attention and referred me to a Family Nurse to help me get focused. The nurse was very understanding and she listened to me. She made suggestions. However, I wasn’t really convinced this would make any difference. She asked me to write down everything I ate or drank and take my blood sugars regularly and write them down. I started to see trends and the errors in my ways. I decreased my intake of sweets and pop.

My A1C went from 15.8 to 7.1. I got more involved in activities. Now I walk 10,000 steps almost every day. The walking seems to help me keep everything else in line. And then the nurse suggested that I start doing regular blood pressure readings and I saw my blood pressure improve. An average reading for me now is 122/54. My doctor is really happy. My pant size decreased also. I was forced to retire a few years ago due to back issues, but I find when I exercise regularly I have much less back pain. I no longer needed pain killers.

You can see how I have become convinced that I can make a big difference in my health through my lifestyle choices. I would highly recommend anyone not paying attention to their diabetes to see a Family Nurse.

PETER VON TIESENHAUSEN’S EPIC ART

Published on

from the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation

Peter von Tiesenhausen, a Lieutenant Governor of Alberta 2015 Distinguished Artist, spent the past six months hunkered down in Demmit Alberta building a deluxe playground for the community center – and musing about connectedness, the importance of social interaction and his role as an artist in the social contract.

Peter’s last project prior to the March 2020 COVID-19 lockdown was the installation of Things I Knew to be True in the newly renovated Stanley A. Milner Public Library, part of the City of Edmonton’s public art collection.
