After months of preparation and training, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers are primed to make their North Central Hockey League debut Saturday night against the Oil Barons in Devon.  Following a 6-2 pre-season win against the Eckville Eagles on Sunday, the Rustlers are set to embark on their inaugural regular season just five months after being accepted into the NCHL.

“It’s hard to believe our season opener is already here,” said Vice President and Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “It seems like just yesterday we were sitting around just throwing out the idea of starting a Senior AA team, and now we’re days away from kicking our season off in Devon.”

The Rustlers’ first home game will go the following Saturday in Penhold, and Pess said there’s already plenty of buzz surrounding the team’s home opener.

“The support we’ve seen from the community has been incredible,” he said. “There’s been no shortage of support from both sponsors and fans, and we can’t wait to hit the ice in Penhold on October 13 in front of our home crowd.”

A familiar face in the Red Deer hockey community will be behind the bench for the Rustlers on Saturday night, as Scott Odegard has signed on to coach, ending the team’s search for a bench boss.

Following Saturday’s road game in Devon, the Rustlers will play four straight home games on October 13, 20, 27 and November 3.

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

A personal story:

“…I connected with the PCN program through my doctor’s recommendation. I have always been a thirsty learner of better ways to navigate through life. The Coaches of the program Journeying through Grief showed up every day with their humanness and wisdom.

I appreciated their loyalty to improve our wellness through learning to manage our grief. They were willing to be vulnerable in a way I have never seen in any kind of therapy or counselling. Their own histories with grief nurtured my trust and receptivity to the information.

They shared their personal experiences in dealing with life’s challenges. For me, I would describe my experience as emotional debridement. I am thankful for the contribution and support of everyone in the class. Several of us had mastered supporting others but needed to learn how to do this for ourselves.

Connection with empathy as in this group is nothing less than GOLDEN in creation of a better life of wellness in arguably a better world. Reflectively I now feel that my own grief was due initially to the loss of my dreams too quickly as important people did not believe in me. Not learning how to handle this made subsequent losses more difficult to manage.

I learned that dealing with grief is a journey and to never give up. If things get tough, have faith that things will get better soon…”

Germany reaches to younger audience with viral Covid-19 public service campaign

Published on

Sometimes in the tsunami of news coming from south of the border, we forget there are other countries fighting wars, having elections, and trying to win the battle against a pandemic that is wreaking havoc with their people and their economies.

Germany has been a leader in this since the start and after a summer of relatively low infection rates, is now facing a far bigger second wave. They’ve been leaders in testing and tracing initiatives and while its caseload climbed in the early stages, the number of deaths remained lower than many countries hardest it. Now the country is seeing its second wave and it’s much more dramatic with nearly four times as many infections.

A series of public service announcements have been produced to help convince the population to stay at home, and they’re funny.

The humorous campaign focuses on the idea of “Coronavirus Heroes”.  It’s shot in a documentary style and features older people reflecting on how they fought the pandemic when they were young. The three clips are featured below and they all contain English sub-titles.  Enjoy!
