Endmoor area targeted by thieves

It was an exciting day for the Knowles family last week when their daughter and granddaughters were seen among the extras in Heartland.

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — It was an exciting day for the Knowles family last week when Lyle and Shannon Knowles, along with their daughter Katie Campbell and granddaughters Jorgie, Scarlet and Lyla Campbell, were among the extras in the filming of the popular CBC TV show Heartland.

The episode was shot at Millarville and will air in mid-January. That sounds like a fantastic experience we will all be watching for our local stars on TV.

On Saturday, to further add to the adventure, Katie and Jorgie attended the season premiere of Heartland in Calgary. Jorgie was interviewed by the Calgary Herald and had her picture taken with the actors and Spartan, the equine star of the show.

The quiet, little hamlet of Endiang had a rash of break-ins either late Sunday or early Monday. Garages, vehicles and the community hall were among those targeted by the thieves. If anyone noticed anything suspicious or has any information to help solve the case they are asked to contact the Hanna RCMP detachment.

It is pretty sad when this sort of thing happens. Everyone will have to be extra cautious in keeping everything under lock and key from now on.

The local floor curlers were going to floor curl and have a meeting to plan their upcoming bonspiels on Monday, but the community hall was roped off for the police investigation. Instead, they just held their meeting at the gazebo north of the hall.

It is that time of year for flu clinics. On Monday, Oct. 24 there will a free flu clinic in Byemoor at the school library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for ages nine and up. Shingles vaccine is also available upon prior request and a prescription from a physician. Anyone attending is asked to bring their Alberta Health Care card. Call Nicole Devaleriola at 403-820-2400 for further information.
