CCC reviews busy year By Dan Jensen

City Center Camrose businesses are beginning to heed the advice of Roger Brooks. The Destination Marketing president and CEO provided suggestions on how the downtown could be improved in a presentation at the Bailey Theatre November 3. "He was inspiring," stated City Center Camrose manager Carole-May Coty in a r eport at the downtown business organization's annual general meeting Nov. 23. Coty said City Center Camrose has invited attendees of the Brooks presentation to attend brainstorming meetings in order to keep the enthusiasm and momentum going. "Several business owners attended the last one and we strive to keep that interest moving toward greater improvements and sharing of ideas." City Center Camrose would like to capitalize on Brooks' idea about providing something for people to do downtown in the evening. "He claimed that sixty to seventy per cent of all sales take place after 6 p.m." Busy year

City Center Camrose placed new benches and additional garbage receptacles in the downtown area in 2010, created a "You Make

a Difference" flyer that was distributed to downtown businesses for them to show appreciation to their patrons and say thank you for their business, and offered three sets of LED winter lights to businesses who cared to have them on a first come first served basis. "The idea was for each to hang the lights themselves in warm weather and to hang or wrap them as far up a tree or pole as could be reached on a ladder," said Coty. "It was felt that the lower lights illuminate the walkways. This was to eliminate the cost of City Center Camrose hiring a bucket truck to hang the lights. This also was an opportunity for businesses to be creative and innovative in their own unique way." City Center Camrose will be celebrating Midnight Madness this Friday by having two horse drawn wagons give rides and carollers from Camrose Composite High School serenade shoppers. Santa Claus will also be handing out candy canes and talking with children. "Store keepers are encouraged to stay open as late as possible as it is disappointing to shoppers who come downtown only to experience many stores closed early," said Coty. The number of business-

es participating in the Stamp Around Downtown promotion is 59, down from 69 last year. A draw for the grand prize of $1,500 will be held December 22. Several downtown eating establishments offered samples of food offerings for $2 or $3 during Camrose Founders' Days "A Taste of Downtown." Coty served on the Chamber of Commerce's Jaywalkers' Jamboree and Big Valley Parade committees, and heard of Boomtown Trail's future plans and strategies during a conference on October 19. City Center Camrose president Dan Olofson said the next few years will be a very exciting time for the organization as it finally has a plan and the way to carry it out. Members of the City Center Camrose board of directors are: Dan Olofson, Duff Layton’s; Alana Hogstead, Martha’s Music; Paul Pedersen, Pedersen’s Florists; Audrey Pfannmuller, Candler Art Gallery; Greg Chrabaszcz, Creative Bedrooms; Kim Clennett. Interiors On Main; Meredith Ambler, Hyperion Laser Rehabilitation Therapy; Michael Wetsch, Tien Rostad LLP; Pa mela Reber, Wisemen’s Way Books; John Howard, City of Camrose representative; Susan Niehaus, Aya; Sheila Thompson, Inspirations Spa.

A quilt was created by Claresholm resident Hazel Perrier to commemorate the Year of the Home Child in 2010. Ms. Perrier, a H ome Child descendant, collected 56 squares from descendants of Home Children to make this beautiful memory quilt. A book accompanies the quilt and contains a story for each square. Thanks to a j oint effort between the Camrose Genealogy Society and Camrose Public Library, the quilt will be displayed at the library during the month of December. Watch your local newspapers and the library for exhibit dates.

For further information on the library, check the Camrose Public Library web site at www. cpl.prl.ab.ca.

St. Mary's operating smoothly in spite of staff shortages By Murray Green

Covenant Health, St. Mary's Hospital, has been operating smoothly despite a few staff shortages in the area. The president was in Camrose on Nov. 24 to conduct a staff meeting and share some news. "We have 18 facilities, so I like to visit them and hold a president forum to share what is going on as a whole with Covenant Health. I like to have conversations with staff and find out some of the good things that are going on," said Covenant Health president and CEO Patrick Dumelie. "Today, I want to share information on our Sisters Legacy Recognition Project. A monument was put up on the Legislative Grounds to commemorate the 150 years of service the Catholic sisters gave to this province. They started education, social services and health care in this province." He showed a video and encouraged staff to continue the legacy the sisters started. "They are creating their own legacy now." Camrose received positive feedback from the accreditation process. "We knocked it out of the park according to our score," beamed Patrick. "It is a b it premature to release those details because it has to go to Ottawa for approval first. We usually receive the final results a month later and it is almost a month now. We will share the great news when we are allowed to." Patrick expanded on the shortage of physicians in the area. "Covenant Health has had some success in recruitment because we have been pro-active," explained the president. "Through employee engagement, we find out how happy they are with work and thus it reduces turnover. We are pro-active in finding out when people plan to retire or move on to other stages of their life. Instead of just putting up a posting when someone leaves, we do our research before and it speeds up the process. Our human resources people are quite sophisticated in forecasting our needs and projecting turnover rates. We are better at recruiting, but it doesn't mean we don't face challenges." The province is short 300 doctors and most of those shortages are in the rural areas. "Camrose is in a better position for recruiting because of all the amenities and its close proximity to Edmonton," said Patrick. "Camrose is not only a city, but it serves a large area. It is a draw because of the mix of services. The future is bright in growing those services with Covenant Health." Currently, Camrose is short two surgical assistants, an obstetrics and gynaecology doctor at the Smith Clinic, two general family practitioners at the Smith Clinic, a general family practitioner at the Gemini Clinic, a locum emergency medicine physician and a psychiatry doctor at the Camrose Clinic. "Recruitment requires a team approach. Mayor (Marshall) Chalmers has revitalized the physician attraction and retention. With 300 vacancies, it is a competitive business." Patrick said what works in Camrose is the community approach. When a shortage of staff occurred several years ago, Camrose residents took matters into their own hands. The Camrose Physician and Retention Committee was formed in 2009. The committee's focus is to ensure that there are sufficient physicians and medical support to meet the needs of residents in Camrose and surrounding communities. "It is not just the hospital that recruits, it is the community. The old saying that it takes a whole community to raise a child applies here," said Patrick. "It takes an entire community to attract and retain doctors. Camrose has the assets to attract the young doctors. It has to be a package. What keeps them there, is how welcome they feel. Some small communities have bought houses to offer incentives for doctors." Continued on page 7

Separate cat bylaw not big priority for City council By Dan Jensen

A separate bylaw to control stray cats in Camrose has been put on the back burner. "I am not sure this is a h igh priority," stated Mayor Marshall Chalmers during a discussion on a potential bylaw at the Nov. 14 meeting of City council. Chalmers noted that the communities that do have cat bylaws are ones that have dedicated substantial resources to dealing with cats at large. He said that is something the City of Camrose cannot do. City of Camrose bylaw enforcement officer Tracey Struz told council that of the 18 municipalities in Alberta she surveyed, 12 have cat bylaws, but four did not require cats to be licenced, and two had one-time licence fees. Two of the municipalities ask that cat owners pay licence fees voluntarily. City of Camrose chief administrative officer Damian Herle

told council that if council does decide to have a cat bylaw there would be have to be an extensive investigation into the licencing of cats, and the capacity of the animal control contractor to hold additional cats. "I have been advised as of this past Thursday the contractor did not have any room for additional cats," he said. "Typically, some cats – kittens – are a lot easier to adopt out than some full grown cats, and some of them may remain with the animal contractor for some time until they are adopted." Herle said Struz spends a lot of time with complainants in terms of helping them to resolve their issues around cats. He noted, too, that the presence of a c at bylaw would not mean that enforcement matters would be completely resolved. Struz said while Dr. Bibby rents traps to capture cats and other animals like skunks, he requires that the traps be

checked every couple of hours and that they not be placed out at night. Councillor John Howard said the statement that Camrose does not have anything to control stray cats is a b it of an understatement. "We probably don't have (a bylaw) that is specific as some people might want but it seems to me in the amendments that were made to the previous (animal control) bylaw that there are significant references to cats and the way in which cats and the problem with cats are treated." Section 53 of the bylaw states that cats that are placed in the pound shall be kept there for a period of not less than three full days unless claimed prior by the owner. Section 57 states that if the cat is wearing an identifiable collar or any other identification, the pound keeper shall make a conscientious effort to notify the owner that the cat has been

impounded and give the owner a reasonable period of time to claim the cat. Councillor Max Lindstrand suggested if cats were licenced the amount of pressure placed on the pound to house the cats would be less. "I can see people who are really attached to their cats would want them licenced because then it would be easier to track them and get them back," he said. Councillor Brandon Blatz said he would be open to having provisions in the existing bylaw regarding the licencing and registration of cats. He said the cats that are causing the problems are the ones that are not being registered. Struz noted in a report that not all complainants may be satisfied with restrictions that come with enforcement capabilities, since it is ea sier to capture and control a dog at large than it is to capture and control a cat at large. She added that the

bylaw officer would not be able to set and monitor any animal trap, and that non-monitoring may lead to a situation involving animal cruelty. The problem of stray cats was raised by Cory and Alicia Sabeski who, as part of an 11-page letter to the mayor and members of council June 11, recommended that the City of Camrose amend its animal control bylaw to equally include cats as animals in all the enforceable parts of the bylaw that pertain to trespassing and damage of property, and extend its leash law to cats when the cats are outdoors. "We believe that it will be important to establish a c atinclusive animal control bylaw that respects the safety, health and welfare of people and the protection of people and property, holds pet owners responsible for their pets, protects said pets, while maintaining a somewhat happy medium for those who choose to own a pet."

Foreign doctors must meet strict requirements in order to practice Continued from page 6

According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, in order for doctors to work at the local hospital, they need an Alberta Medical Practice Permit. They must meet general eligibility requirements, have an independent practice, including locums and provide evidence of English language proficiency. "Within Canada, we use standardized testing and medical schools as much as possible. It gets a lot more complex when you consider the foreign medical schools. They have to pass exams and quality," said Patrick. Physicians who have been out of formal postgraduate training or independent practice for three or more years must provide evidence of currency in practice or training before being considered for eligibility to apply

Dr. Patrick Dumelie

for a p ractice permit. "It gets quite complex, but each position

has its own standards to meet to qualify. Most physicians do a lot of the work before they arrive here." Eligible international graduate applicants must provide credential verification through the Physician Credential Registry of Canada (PCRC). Applicants should start the credential verification process immediately after receiving written confirmation of their eligibility for a practice permit. "It comes down to the communities on whether they want to recruit foreign doctors," said Patrick. "Sometimes communities have to pool resources to share doctors." He added that Camrose has good leadership and is on the right path to attracting the staff needed to continue to offer services to the citizens.

Second Thought Jérôme Melançon, Political Studies and Philosophy, Augustana Campus, University of Alberta

As a result of Alison Redford’s election as Premier, any vote in the upcoming Albertan provincial elections will be a vote for change. Albertans will thus need to ask themselves which change they want. After Premier Ed Stelmach announced in January 2011 that he would step down within the year, Ted Morton became the focus of significant media attention. He stepped down as Finance minister – the most important position in provincial politics after the Premier –, a nd refused to put his name on Stelmach’s last budget. He then suggested that the PC should fight the next election on the right by repositioning itself close enough to the Wildrose party to bring its members back into the fold. But in doing so, he was re-enacting the split in the PC that had led in 2008 to the creation of the Wildrose Alliance. Yet Morton, like Stelmach, is Ralph Klein’s heir. Stelmach took his legacy toward the centre, while Morton towards the right and his main strategy, also a c entrepiece of the Wildrose Party’s discourse, has, not surprisingly, been to denounce Stelmach. Even though the Wildrose Party is now attempting to portray Alison Redford as continuing in Stelmach’s footsteps, her nomination nonetheless represents change within the PC. She brought changes as soon as she became premier, most notably by reversing cuts to education and re-hiring the teachers that had recently been let go. In this manner, she is highlighting the distance that separates her from Stelmach and from the Wildrose Party. This is precisely the kind of change that the Alberta Party has been calling for, with its ongoing reference to the Lougheed era. The question will however remain: is it possible at all to do any other kind of politics than that of Klein and

Stelmach with the use of the PC machinery? Will Redford’s adversaries – Klein’s heirs and those still undecided as to whether they should make the jump further to the right with the Wildrose Party – stop her from following her own path? The Alberta Party, the New Democrats, and the Liberals will certainly argue that they will. In order to prevent further rifts in the party or new departures to the Wildrose Party, but also to effectively re-unite the party after the always divisive process of choosing a new leader, she had no choice but to include her opponents in her cabinet. Despite the concentration of power in the hands of Premiers and Prime Ministers, ministers do sway decisions on a daily basis. We should not underestimate the importance of the fact that in all likelihood, Alberta will have a woman Premier for the next six years. That is also a strong, meaningful change. Still, the struggle to be included and respected in Albertan politics is not over for women: there are still only a small number of women in the Legislative Assembly and in the Cabinet, and we still have to wait to see whether any policy ideas presented by Danielle Smith and Alison Redford will help balance out the playing field at all. The very small proportion of the Progressive Conservative Party membership who voted has made a d ecision that has polarized politics in Alberta for the very first time in decades. At one end, the Wildrose Party, which can no longer claim it is the only party on the right that represents change; far, almost to the centre, the Progressive Conservatives; and even further, slightly to the left of the centre, the New Democrats, Liberals, and Alberta parties, which will now need to differentiate themselves not only from each other, but from the current Premier as well.

Letters to the Editor

BIRTHDAY LADY

Camrose Royal Purple Honoured Royal Lady Doreen Kelly presented a bouquet of roses to Edna Francoeur Nov. 24 in recognition of her 90th birthday.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Inspirational event at 'the Comp' Each time I a m in the Camrose Composite High School (which is not often), I am pleased with what I see. Last week was no exception when it was again my privilege to attend the ceremony to induct four new nominees to the CCHS Wall of Fame – three former students and one former faculty member. They were Douglas Bieber, Dr. Sandy Dong, Greta Reiten and Cliff Hoyme (their achievements have been previously reported in the Nov. 15 and Nov. 22 issues of The Booster). My first impression as I walked through the door of the school, down the hallways, into classrooms, washrooms, library, gym, beauty culture, culinary and industrial arts areas, was how clean, tidy and well-maintained it is. I h ad a sense that faculty, staff and students were proud of their school and all played a part in caring for it – a t eam effort! That’s satisfying to see because that school represents a huge investment of time, energy, planning, and millions of dollars to provide universal access to both academic and technical education for our community’s youth. Because good schools are more than bricks and mortar, a natural question asks if the school is achieving its objective – the Camrose School Division vision which is: Every Student Every Day A S uccess. The induction ceremony provided evidence that graduates of CCHS have indeed been offered educational opportunities giving them the potential to accomplish significantly. The four new inductees have brought honour to themselves, to CCHS, and benefit to others through their careers and voluntary community service. The highlight of the induction event was the introduction of the inductees by four CCHS students and the responses of the honoured recipients before an assembly of students and recipients’ family members. There was a common message even though expressed differently by each of the responders: they accepted the honour with surprise, humility and gratitude; they gave credit to parents and teachers for inspiration and encouragement noting that one does not achieve without the help of others. As honourees spoke of their life experiences, it became clear that, at an early age, they had dreams and aspired to do great and good things, and worked hard and took risks to achieve goals. Their words must have been thought-provoking to the students who heard them, causing them to think about the importance of having an attitude of gratitude, having high aspirations of making a d ifference, and the determination to pursue them with diligent effort. Success is not achieved by simply waiting for it to happen! Each year, in November, up to three former students and one former teacher are added to the CCHS Wall of Fame. The participation of the public is requested in getting nominations from a wide area of occupations, whether the service has been rendered afar or right here at home. Nomination forms are available at the CCHS office. The final selection is made by a committee of teachers and community representatives. The purpose of the Wall of Fame project is t o recognize meritorious achievement in career and community service and to inspire today’s students to stretch their visions of making a better world. The pictures and citations currently on the CCHS Wall of Fame are a testament to the fact that graduation from ‘the Comp’ in small town Camrose can indeed be a step toward significant personal achievement and service to humanity.

Letters are welcomed but please limit them to 5 00 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only name of writer and city or town will be printed. Letters to third parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit f or length, clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Dear Editor: On November 9 TransAlta Corp. admitted it manipulated electricity prices in Alberta forcing consumers to pay an extra $5.5 million for electricity. TransAlta negotiated its own penalty (settlement) for its transgressions and paid a fine of $370,000. A dditionally, TransAlta gets to keep the details of its illegal actions confidential and out of the public eye. On November 12, TransAlta’s CEO, Steve Snyder, wrote in the Calgary Herald, “We did not intentionally breach any rules or regulations. We misinterpreted rules around the competitive business of electricity trading.” How does a c ompany commit a $5.5 million dollar offense against the rate paying public and then negotiate a $370,000 penalty? What’s to prevent TransAlta from committing the same offense again and again if the penalty amounts to no more than a 7 per cent fee, otherwise known as a cost of doing business? The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) and the Market Surveillance Administrator (MSA) are the two government created corporations responsible for overseeing Alberta’s electricity market. Both claim to be independent, and yet both have consistently sided with industry to the detriment of the rate paying public. The AESO is c urrently seeking a c ourt judgment to limit the public’s right to attend rate increase hearings. AESO and the MSA are the very same organizations that couldn’t find any wrong doing when electricity prices spiked from $14.50 to $223.80 per megawatt in 2000. The comedic investigation was made all the more ridiculous after irrefutable evidence surfaced in 2005 (tape-recorded conversations) between TransAlta and Enron Employees. The tape recordings recorded employees engaged in the manipulation of market prices. TransAlta’s market manipulation behavior has not been limited to Alberta. On June 25, 2003, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a

"Show Cause" order to TransAlta alleging that TransAlta manipulated electricity prices, along with Enron, leading to widespread power outages in California. The FERC chose not to prosecute TransAlta because TransAlta claimed it profited less than $10,000. Can Albertans trust what TransAlta or AESO executives tell us? These are the very same people that still claim the Bill 50 transmission lines are not being built to subsidize export. They tell Albertans this even after TransAlta received approval, on July 12, 2010, to export on average 48,000 megawatt hours each day – for the next ten years. Alberta’s deregulated electricity system has been a disaster from the beginning. From one scandal to another including offenses of spying on citizens and market price manipulation, the system has fallen into disrepute. The organizations responsible for overseeing the system are ineffective and at times incompetent. Albertans need an independent public inquiry into the abuses that plague Alberta’s electricity system. The public should be refunded for what they have been overcharged! Joe Anglin Rimbey Dear Editor, It has been only a f ew months since we have received our new premier. The events of these few months have been shocking. T here is one question that I h ave on my mind. Is our new premier too red for Alberta? We as Albertans did not have to bother voting for a Liberal government at all. All we had to do was vote for a party who is s upposed to be true blue Conservative, only to find ourselves with a party who is really Liberals painted blue. The Liberals seem to feel right at home in Redford's caucus. J ust recently, a l iberal MLA from Lethbridge-East, Bridget Pastoor, crossed the floor to the PCs. They also got an endorsement from the federal NDP party! Linda Duncan was pleased that Redford had adopted the federal NDP platform for public dialogue on sustainable energy future for Canadians. I h ave gotten my information from www.redfordfiles.ca I might have gotten the wrong picture here! I must add that when two MLAs crossed the floor to the Wildrose Alliance Party, at least they moved to another conservative party. Now we have a Liberal moving to the PC par-

ty which makes me question how conservative the PC party really is. Is P remier Redford too red for Alberta? Maybe in the last election, we as Albertans should have voted in a Liberal party. In my opinion, this is what we really have in right now. Liberals painted as blue Conservatives. It is up to Albertans to decide if the PC party is too red for them. If they are, then vote in a b lue conservative party. I f not, well we will be stuck with the party that we have had for the past forty years. It is up to you who you decide to vote in. We will have to see what the answer is o n election day. Lorne Vanderwoude, Camrose Dear Editor, Good old-fashioned paper and ink are still an effective way to promote local events. Murray Green took the time to interview the Camrose Primary Care Network and facilitators about the Nov. 5 event "Support for those facing bereavement and grief." His story created so much interest in Camrose and surrounding areas that a re peat session will be held on January 14, 2012! A big thank you to the participants and to grief helpers who know the importance of walking through the journey of loss with those who are bereaved. We are grateful to the physicians and staff at the Camrose Primary Care Network for recognizing the needs of our community by providing a f ull day of information and education while inspiring hope. Thank you for the delicious lunch and refreshment breaks. Your hospitality provided comfort and a safe place to explore an uncomfortable topic. Facilitators Donna Lynne Erickson and Colette Howery Dear Editor, I would like to acknowledge my appreciation of Berdie Fowler’s Pen Points for November 22, 2011 “Homophobia and Bullying in Schools”. T hank you for offering the opportunity for Booster readers to consider the topic of bullying and homophobia. You have provided some very timely ideas for us all to consider. As a parent, educator, counselor and citizen who helps to support the personal and collective struggles of today’s youth I respect and appreciate your informative timely presentation. Sincerely, Todd Markowsky Registered Psychologist Counsellor Camrose Composite High School

will be allocated directly to common share accounts on December 1, 2011 Your share of the profit will be 25.25% back for every dollar of loan interest you have paid in the past year. You will also be paid an additional 25.25% for every dollar in interest income you have received in the past year. For example, if you had a $100,000 mortgage at 5% at Battle River Credit Union, total loan interest in the 12-month fiscal year would be $5,000. This profit share payout at 25.25% means $1,262.50 will be added to your common share account. If you earned deposit interest during the year, you also benefit with this payout. As an example, let’s assume you earned $1,800 in interest during the year. Your common share account would grow by 25.25% of $1,800 – your reward will be $454.50. Battle River Credit Union is a member-owned organization. Your representatives on the Board of Directors together with management have allocated approximately $72 million in profits to our members’ common share accounts! If you’re already a member-owner of Battle River Credit Union, thank you and congratulations on yet another terrific year.

Charity Check Stop Saturday

Bundle up this Christmas and

By Dan Jensen

Camrose Police Service, Camrose RCMP and Camrose Victim Services will be conducting their annual Charity Check Stop this Saturday. It will be set up on the east bound service road in front of Camrose Registry from noon to 4:00 p.m. The Charity Check Stop was started five years ago as a way for Camrosians to make donations to Camrose and District Food Bank, the Camrose Kinettes' Silent Santa Campaign and Camrose and County Victim Services. The Check Stop is voluntary and donations can be made without ever having to get out of the vehicle. The 2010 event collected $2,000 in cash and 3,200 lbs. of food for the Camrose and District Food Bank, 840 toys for the Silent Santa program, and $5,700 in cash for Camrose and District Victim Services. Camrose Police and RCMP have always been impressed with the generosity that has been shown. Camrose and County Victim Services will use money it receives in donations to train advocates to aid victims of crime and tragedy in Camrose City and Camrose County. The Camrose Kinettes' Silent Santa program is looking for Christmas gifts for older children, including board and handheld games, books, sporting goods and gift certificates.

ONE Bill! ONE Company! ONE Great Price!

Tuesday, December 6 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Augustana choir and Sangkor – Augustana’s women’s choir – will be presenting Harmonia Caelestis, a choral concert in celebration of the Advent season. Festive music will resound in the university chapel on the evening of Saturday, December 3 ( 7:45 p.m. pre-concert lecture/8:00 p.m. concert) and the afternoon of December 4 (2:45 p.m. pre-concert lecture/3:00 p.m. concert). Choral works of representative Canadian and Hungarian composers will be featured, including seven cantatas drawn from Harmonia Caelestis – a n extensive choral/orchestral work written by Hungarian baroque composer, Pal Esterházy. As the Harmonia Caelestis cantatas were first published in 1711, this performance will be a 300th anniversary celebration. These glorious sacred baroque cantatas from central Europe will be juxtaposed with a d elightful single movement cantata also written in the early 18th century. Sacred choral works by Robin J. King will have their Camrose premiére to mark an important anniversary for this Alberta composer, now residing in Bashaw, Alberta. With imaginative percussion, recorder, handbell, and organ accompaniments, King’s inspired and accessible compositional techniques breathe life into lovely medieval texts. In addition to these featured works, miscellaneous choral compositions by Elgar, Gjeilo, Guzman, and Rutter will add to the heavenly harmony. The Augustana choir, directed by Dr. Ardelle Ries, and Sangkor, directed by Brendan Lord, will be joined by the Esterházy Instrumental Ensemble, Dr. Roger Admiral (continuo), Tova Olson (piano and percussion), and Dr. Milton Schlosser (organ). Dr. Alex Carpenter will present the pre-concert lecturers. Tickets will be available at the door. Donations to the Camrose Food Bank and Christmas Presence are welcome.

Terry McDade and The McDades will be providing a suitable musical backdrop to the Christmas season at the Bailey Theatre Dec. 14. Winner of a 2007 Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Album, Terry McDade and The McDades will be performing a collection of carols and traditional and folk gems from its newest recording, Winter Rose, including a rendition of Pete Seeger's Snow Snow and a Ron Sexsmith's Maybe this Christmas. Terry McDade, who has come through a kidney transplant, is recognized as one of the best Celtic harp players in the country. "The stunning sounds of Terry McDade's harp strings as they magnify the best of mid winter merriment or remind us of the peaceful solitude found in a walk in a shimmering snow laden forest are as alluring and inviting as the season itself," said Peter North, who works with Terry McDade and The McDades. Terry McDade has instilled a love for all kinds of music in his children. He set them in front of audiences as soon as the fiddle- playing Shannon, the multi-instrumentalist Jeremiah and the bass-playing Solon were able to work as an ensemble. "I so look forward to this time of year when the kids make themselves available for these shows and we're able to spend a few weeks together making music," said Terry. "In turn we are able to bring people together to celebrate the season." The concert will get underway at the Bailey Theatre starting at 7:30. Tickets may be purchased ahead of time at the Bailey Theatre box office.

Volleyball squad wins zones, advances to provincials By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School (CCHS) Trojans boys' volleyball team earned a berth to provincials for the fourth straight year. "Our zone tournament was a success, but we played the long way to win," said coach Graeme Thain. "We lost to Lacombe in the round robin. That put us in a semifinal against Wetaskiwin, whom we beat in the round robin. Wetaskiwin played us much harder in the semi and pushed us to a decisive third game." The victory over Wetaskiwin gave the Trojans another shot at Lacombe. "After winning the semi we played Lacombe again in the final, which was our third match in a r ow. We were more consistent for the final, beating Lacombe in two straight games." Camrose earned a trip to Medicine Hat for 3A provincials on Nov. 24 to 26. Grade 12 student Austin Mackey made it no secret that he wants to do well in his last year at high school. "I want to win it all in my last year and I am really excited. We have had a go od season, although I missed a f ew weeks because I rolled my ankle," said Austin. "My team played well without me. I think the team played really played well at zones." Members of the zone champions include Lucas Brown, Cole Comfort, Connor Foreman, Riley Guntrip, Hayden Johnson, Jesse Kerr, Austin Mackey, Devon McKinstry, Nathan Saby and Greg Throndson. The team is coached by Graeme Thain and Pat McFeely. "We didn't have a great year at tournaments. We seemed to choke in the semifinals. We played well during the season and at zones though," explained Austin. "At first, I thought we were going to steam roll through zones. But, we found out the hard way that the other teams came to play." Lacombe k nocked off the Trojans, but Camrose earned the right to meet them again. "The first time we played them, we

didn't play that well. The second time, we passed really well and controlled the ball on our side of the court," Austin added. "At provincials, it will be all of the best teams and we have to be ready." CCHS is in a pool with Barrhead, Airdrie, St. Joe's of Grande Prairie, Edmonton Christian, and the host Medicine Hat squad. The other pool consists of teams from Peace Wapiti Academy of Grande Prairie, Calgary

Christian, Chestermere, Lac La Biche, Edson and Dunmore. "We start provincials against St. Joe's, who we beat in three games at our own tournament. We are looking for another victory," said Austin prior to provincials. "We have also played Barrhead and Crescent Heights (Medicine Hat) in our pool. It makes it a l ot easier to defend against them because we have played them before." Austin said the team was

working on passing and defence before provincials. "Our strength is passing and setting Connor up for smashing the ball. When he is strong up the middle, it opens up for plays on the outside and allows me to use my power. It forces the other teams to go with one-on-one blocks, which makes it easier for us." Cole is t he setter and is another key player to set up the offence. "I have played with him since Grade 9. We have good

chemistry and I rea lly like him. He is p laying a l ot better now. When he was in Grade 10, he hurt his shoulder and was out for the whole year. Last year, he didn't play better either, so h e is now back i nto a rea lly good groove." The team placed third last year. "We definitely want to get to the finals. That is our goal. We want to be better than last year."

CCHS volleyball girls end season at zone tourney in Lacombe By Murray Green

Although the CCHS Trojans blocked this play, the Lacombe Rams stopped the girls' team from advancing past the zones volleyball playoffs. The senior girls lose only two players for next season.

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans senior girls' volleyball team finished a g ood season at the zone tournament in Lacombe on Nov. 18 and 19. Although the host team won the event and advanced to provincials, Camrose gained valuable experience this season. "The first day was good and we won both of our sets," explained Brittnay Voss, a Grade 11 member of the club. "On the second day, we tried really hard, but Lacombe was one of the tougher teams we faced. We also lost to Stettler, but it was close." CCHS completed the regular season in fourth place to qualify for the zone tournament. "I think we played really well and grew as a team over the year," said Brittnay. "We bonded as a team." The Trojans were a l ittle disappointed they didn't improve on their fourth place ranking in

Central Alberta. "We thought we could finish a little better, but we gave it our best effort. Our goal was to win zones, but it didn't work out for us," added Brittnay. The team loses only two Grade 12 players for next season, so the experience gained this year could help the squad next fall. "The team should be good next year, but I haven't decided if I am playing. I really enjoy playing and it is my favourite sport, but I need to focus on academics," said Brittnay. "I want to be an ultra sound technician, so I need high marks in the sciences." The girls on the squad worked hard at bonding and playing as a team. "Our strength was that every player knew what they were supposed to do," said Brittnay. "We played a lot of three game matches, so w e were in every one."

regulation because then we don't give points to the opposition," said Paul. "It has been a good season for me, but that reflects on how well my teammates have been playing around me." In the rematch, the scoring was spread out over skaters Harrison Tribble, Daniel Hope, Hobbs, Prpick and Brad Bourke. Kolida stopped 25 of 29 shots. "I think our defence has been playing well," said Paul. "They are trying to keep the shots to the outside and let me see the pucks. If I can see the puck, then most of the time I'm going to stop them. If we give up 30 shots, but they are not good shots, then that is fine. It's my job to stop the first shot and then control the rebounds." The Vikings know the teams will be tougher the second time around. "We play Portage and we know it won't be 15-0 again. We have to make sure we play our game. They are improving and they will be gunning for us. They want to make the playoffs." Augustana plays in Calgary against SAIT to wrap up the first half of the season. The next home game for the Vikings is o n Jan. 11 when the NAIT Ooks arrive in Camrose.

The Vikings blasted Concordia 8-2 in the first meeting last weekend, but the Thunder wanted to seek revenge in the rematch. Augustana is tied for second in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference with 17 points. "Our goal is to earn four points every weekend, so we were happy with that," said goalie Paul Kolida. "The Saturday game went into overtime, but at least we picked up the points. The arena Concordia plays in is always a tough rink and they were at home and wanted to show how they could play. They haven't had the best year, but they have a lot of good players." In the first game, Dean Prpick garnered a h at trick to lead the Vikings in scoring.

The exceptional kitchen contains plenty of maple cabinetry, granite counter tops, china cabinets, tiled backsplash, large island with eating bar, walk-in pantry, built-in desk and stainless steel appliances. It leads to a b right dinette with garden doors leading to a large maintenance-free deck. You'll love the warm and cozy

The private master bedroom, with a walk-in closet, has a superb en suite featuring a soothing air tub and an additional shower. An additional good-sized bedroom, a laundry room and a main four-piece bathroom are also on the first level. The unfinished basement has lots of potential.

The Railway Garden Museum features miniature buildings. Submitted

The gardens at the Camrose Railway Station Museum and Park will be featured in the January/February 2012 issue of Gardens West magazine. The gardens have been developed by Glenys and Bruce Smith, who moved from Calgary to Camrose to become the Station's volunteer curators. "They're places that people can come to enjoy the flowers," said Glenys. The station's Railway Museum Garden features a m odel train and miniature buildings built to scale. In keeping with the prairie theme, the layout has a little coulee that is planted with cacti, hens and chicks and sedums. In spring the space is a mass of daffodils, tulips, crocus, squill and other early bloomers. The Hummingbird Garden is packed with colour from mountain blue, bergamot, lupines, Asiatic lilies, foxgloves, Morden centennial roses, and canary bird vine. In the middle is a stepladder with pots of scarlet geraniums on its rungs. In the fall the Hummingbird Garden is awash with the bright blooms of Maltese cross and goldenrod. The Lupine Garden has bloom colour starting in early spring when shooting stars and violets pop up long before the lupines come and the poppies take over. "We don't use herbicides in this garden," said Glenys, "so we do companion planting. Sea holly attracts good bugs, liatris brings the butterflies in the fall, and the catmint discourages the deer." The gardens have been supported from people in the community. "One winter, a number of people collected items at garage sales and then got together to decorate them with folk art," said Glenys. "The pieces were then used as planters or accents throughout the garden. Seeing their work in the garden makes people feel a part of it, and that's what we want." The gardens are typical of the ones that surrounded railway stations in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Along with impressing and inspiring the early pioneers who travelled on train, they gave proof of the rich prairie soil by showing exactly what could be grown.

Kodiaks steal two points from Bandits By Murray Green

The Brooks Bandits were the best team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. That is, until the Camrose Kodiaks robbed Brooks of four points. Just when Brooks was feeling comfortable with a 2 -0 lead at home against the Kodiaks on Nov. 20, Camrose scored five straight goals to steal the victory. Down 2-1 after 40 minutes, the Kodiaks netted four in the third period to complete the grand theft. Veteran Nolan Marshall led the bears with two goals, while Sam Jardine, Rylan Wiest and Luc Vandale chipped in with one each. "It feels fantastic to beat Brooks again. We wanted to send a message to them that we are not going to be a p ushover and we are always going to go h ard until the end. We had a go od third period and it is good to come back on them," said Nolan. "Both teams played the night before and we were tired. We looked at each other and said this is attainable. It was ours to go o ut and grab it. We just dug a little deeper than they did." Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 37 of 39 shots and Camrose had 28 shots on goal. Two recent losses left the Bandits with a 2 1-5 record, which leaves them tied for first overall with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. The Kodiaks also faced Fort McMurray in a t ough weekend. The Oil Barons edged Camrose 4-3 score on Nov. 19. "We can beat any team in this league and there is n o doubt about it," said Nolan. "A little lapse was the only difference. We can't let off the gas pedal. It is a huge confidence booster to know we can play and beat the best teams." Wiest, Landon Kadatz and Craig Bokenfohr provided the offence. A five minute lapse in the second period was the difference in the game as it cost the Kodiaks three tallies. The Oil Barons outshot the Kodiaks 12-5 in the

frame. Goalie Brayden Hopfe stopped 26 of 30 shots, while Camrose only managed 21 shots. Nolan has been playing well lately. "It is t hat time of year when you need to step up before the break and play well," he said. "My job is to play well defensively and provide some banging and crashing. If I can chip in by scoring goals, then that only helps the team even more. Goal scoring isn't my thing, but I like to help out now and again. When you score a f ew points, it gives you added confidence and it led to some power play time. My role is being an energy guy. I enjoy helping out anyway I can." The Kodiaks shut down the number one offensive team in the league, the Brooks Bandits, in a l ow scoring 3-1 game on Nov. 18. "The Camrose Kodiaks have always been built around defence first," explained Nolan. "We have struggled defensively, but we knew they are an offensive team and we had to be aware of that and not let them have too many chances. We are confident in our defensive zone, we just needed to get back to doing what we do best." Ty Clay and Connor Mailey opened the scoring for Camrose. When Brooks cut the lead in half, Vandale scored three minutes later to stop Brooks' momentum before it could hit high gear. "Our line's role is to hold off the other team from scoring and if we score that is a bonus. Right now, we are playing at both ends of the rink. Playing well defensively always adds to chances on offence. The less time you spend in your own defensive zone provides you with more time to go on the offence." Brayden stopped 31 of 32 shots in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks face the Bonnyville Pontiacs and St. Albert Steel in back-to-back home games on Dec. 2 and 3.

Camrose Flying Club benefits from partnerships By Dan Jensen

The two performances by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds over Camrose last summer wouldn't have happened without a strong partnership involving the Camrose Flying Club, the City of Camrose and Big Valley Jamboree. "Without Big Valley Jamboree we likely wouldn't have been able to attract the Snowbirds all on our own," explained Camrose Flying Club member Jadene Mah in a presentation to Camrose City council Nov. 14.

Using the in-kind and monetary support provided by the City and Big Valley Jamboree for Snowbirds Over Camrose as leverage, the Camrose F lying Club was able to apply for and receive a $45,000 Community Initiatives Program grant to pay for operating expenses associated with the Snowbirds' event, as well as fund several Camrose Flying Club legacies, including the construction of a safety fence at the airport in front of the terminal building and the purchase of special event items (tables,

chairs and signage) that will support the annual fly-in breakfast, which is Western Canada's largest. "I know you can't necessarily always rely on those grants to be available but you certainly do always try for them," said Mah. "We wouldn't have been able to do so w ithout the partnerships around the table." The Canadian Forces Snowbirds arrived at the Camrose Airport July 28 and left July 30. The team performed its flat show (non aerobatic) over grounds of Rudy

Swanson Park on the Thursday, and again over Big Valley Jamboree crowds on Saturday. "We ended up moving the show from the airport to the Edgeworth Centre so w e could give the residents of the various seniors' lodges in that area the opportunity to see the show," said Mah. "Each individual has expressed that they think they had the best seat in the house." Other events associated with the Snowbirds' visit included a

kids' picnic hosted by the Camrose Open Door Association and sponsored by the Wild Rose Coop, and a presentation by Snowbird 5 C aptain B. P arker, from Edmonton, which involved all youth participants of the Reading University program. Participants received information about the Snowbirds' mission and were able to do a special walk-around of the Snowbird 5 jet. The Canadian Forces Snowbirds are currently putting together their performance schedule for 2012.

Sweet Adelines present history book to Centennial Museum Submitted by Linda Olson and Joyce Wilcox

Good fortune came to the City of Camrose when Betty Baker moved here in July of 1970. She brought with her a w ealth of information of the world of Sweet Adelines and promptly placed an ad in the local paper re the organization of a c horus here. Eleven ladies responded to her ad and were the first ones to gather on the 24th of September 1970, with Betty. Her enthusiasm, faithfulness and cheerfulness greatly encouraged those of us who love to sing. Mirror Lake Chapter Sweet Adelines received its charter on December 15, 1971, with 24 members. (Twenty members were required to get a c harter). We started out being in Region 13 which included BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, the Yukon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. In 1981 the region was so big we split and became the All-Canadian Region 26, consisting of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and the Yukon. Two of our members, Joyce Wilcox and Dorine James, were elected to the first board of directors of Region 26. Mirror Lake Chapter held six shows or shows and dances over the years, plus sang at Stoney Creek Lodge, Rosealta Lodge, St. Mary’s Hospital, Rosehaven, appeared on the Camrose Barbershoppers' Shows, Carol Festivals, the Senior Centre Telethons, Jaywalkers’

Jamboree and also had a f ew singouts out of town. They also entered regional competitions at different times at different places throughout BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan and attended many music schools in the region also. Their director, Betty Baker, married Arnold Schielke in June of 1974 and the chorus sang at their wedding. In 1980 Joyce Wilcox

became the director, and stayed until 1985 when Betty Hancock took a t urn at it until 1986, and then Betty Schielke took over the reins once more. In 1991 we had to go into Prospective Chapter status because of insufficient members and Betty stepped down once more and Denise Reed-Griffin tried her hand at directing us. In May of 1992 we regretfully disbanded

as we had too few members to retain our charter. Over the years our members numbered 83 and we had seven original charter members left at the end – A ndy Christianson, Reta Gabourie, Betty Schielke, Marabelle O’Riordan, Joyce Wilcox, Linda Olson and Vi Webber. After the charter was lifted, several members joined Chapter at Large for a f ew years and a

few members joined Gateway Chapter in Edmonton, among whom was Vi Webber who was a member until her passing in June, 2010. Betty Schielke, our founder and first director passed away in August, 2003. We hope many of our former members will take the time to visit the museum and leaf through some of the memories of years gone by.

Lindstrand family learning a new language in Australia By Jon and Laura-Joy Lindstrand

We are getting the hang of hearing the Australian slang and loving the Australian accent, even if they say we are the ones with the accent. Time here is flying by and we have been having heaps (rather than loads) of fun with everything. We are constantly thankful for the opportunity to have such a l ife-enhancing adventure. And learning a new language has been fun as well. Because the slang used in Australia is so impressive, I thought I w ould write a f ew silly paragraphs for you to see if you can interpret their meanings. Keep in mind that the slang is not often this intense, but I d id want to give you an example of a few common slang words used in daily life here. 1) Ow’s it go-en mate?

Yah, I am ordinary; just puffed from working so h ard, and I am crook with a wog. I am sure it will all come good though, I’m not gonna winge about it. I have heaps to do, my list is just chukkers. Meaning: How are you doing? I am not great, just beat from working so h ard and I am sick from a bug/virus. I am sure it will all be fine in the end though, I a m not going to complain about it. I have lots to do, my list is full. 2) I love that you just rocked up, I was just on my way to take the rubbish bins out. Wanna throw some snags on the barbie? Yah, let's give it a go. I have some tomato sauce and bread inside. It sure is hot out, I j ust went to the bottle shop so I h ave drinks in the esky. There are poppers and soft drinks in there as well and I may even have some ice

blocks for a treat, oh and I have some lollies if you are interested. Maybe you just wanna cuppa instead? Meaning: I l ove that you just showed up, I w as taking out the garbage cans. Want to toss some sausages on the bbq? Let's do it. I have some ketchup and bread inside (incidentally, they often wrap the sausages in bread, not buns). It sure is hot out. I just went to the liquor store so I h ave drinks in the cooler. There are juice boxes and pop in there as well, and I may even have some freezies for a treat, oh and I have some candies if you are interested. Maybe you want tea/coffee instead? 3) What a busy day. While the kids were at kindie I swung by the bowser for petrol, lifted the bonnet and filled up the windscreen fluid, and put air in the spare tire in the boot.

Meaning: what a busy day. While the kids were at preschool I swung by the gas station for gas, lifted the hood and filled up the windshield fluid, and put air in the spare tire in the trunk. 4) The postie dropped off a birthday invitation for a kids' sleep-over party tonight so I packed an overnight bag for the event including a hoodie, beanie and singlette, as well as some swag, mozzie spray, and a torch. T hey will be sleeping in a c aravan by a billabong, so it may be cool at night. The caravan park is out on a s tation where they will get to see jackeroos and jillaroos. The station is a bit of a distance away, and the bitumen is na rrow so I a m sure they will be overtaken a whole heap. Meaning: The mailman dropped off a b irthday invita-

tion for a kids' sleep-over party tonight so I pack ed an overnight bag for the event including a sweater, toque and tank top as well as sleeping bags, mosquito spray and a f lashlight. They will be sleeping in a camper by a pond, so it may be cool at night. The campsite is out on a fa rm where they will see cowgirls and cowboys. The farm is a bit of a distance away and the pavement is narrow so I am sure they will be passed lots. I hope you enjoyed your Australian slang work sheet. I know we love our daily dose of Australian slang, it keeps us on our toes. Everyday we are reminded more and more of how amazing this country is, how unique it is, and how fantastic the people are. We are so very thankful for this wonderful adventure.

Sifton School needs to raise funds for new playground By Murray Green

With most school playgrounds deemed unsafe by today's standards, it has left the parent volunteers scrambling for funding to build modern equipment, which meets safety requirements. The current playground at École Sifton School is no different. "It has been deemed unsafe and does not meet safety standards any longer," said Jennifer Tomaszewski of the Sifton play-

ground fund-raising committee. "École Sifton School has grown tremendously with the addition of the French Immersion program and we currently have over 360 students. "As such, our recess breaks have been scheduled in shifts as the playground can only accommodate 200 children at a t ime. Our playground is scheduled for removal in the spring of 2012 and unfortunately there is n o longer any budget allocated for

playground equipment within the Battle River School Division." Due to budget cuts, the task of funding new playground equipment has been passed on to the parents. "Many hours have been volunteered by gracious individuals and parents over the past two years in order to fund-raise the current total of $52,000," explained Jennifer. "The total cost of the playground is $308,000. W e would

greatly appreciate any donation so that we can build a playground for the children at C Si fton School." All donations made out to Battle River School Division, with Sifton Playground written on the memo line, will receive a c haritable donation tax receipt. "Should you assist with a donation, you will have contributed more than just money. You will play a part in providing a healthy, safe, playground for our

students in the years to come. In return for your generosity, the individual or business name will be prominently displayed on our permanent Friends of École Sifton School plaque." Donations or playground questions may be directed to Jennifer Tomaszewski 780-6723084, Eva Sveinbjornson 780878-4343, Denise Hawkins 780672-5717 or Shannon Stolee 780672-5234.

Resident seeks help with petition By Dan Jensen

Camrose resident Gary Keetch is seeking help with a petition to City council to address what he contends is a problem of noisy mufflers. "I have obtained advice on how to put one (a petition) together but I n eed help in putting the right wording on it so it can't be thrown out on a technicality," said Keetch. "I also need people to help me take it around Camrose." Keetch approached Camrose City council this past September to voice his concern about a truck with a noisy muffler that was waking himself and others on his street in the middle of the night. A follow-up report to council by the Camrose Police Service stated there is legislation in place under sections 61 of the Vehicle Equipment Regulations, section 87 of the Use of Highway and Rules of the Road regulations, and section 115 of the Traffic Safety Act, and that Keetch's support and consideration for additional legislation "is appreciated, however not deemed necessary at this time." The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association has asked the Province of Alberta to establish provincial standards with respect to noise produced in connection with a vehicle, to define what constitutes an objectionable noise, and to establish a method of determining or measuring noise and prohibiting the use or operation of a vehicle that emits noise above an established regulated level. Keetch said he has received calls of support from residents saying he is doing a good job and that he should continue with his efforts. "I know I a m not the only person in Camrose who is concerned about this," he said. Keetch added that the driver of the truck that was going past his house in the middle of the night is no longer causing any problems.

No stopping Andrew Pohl at nationals By Murray Green

Andrew Pohl took matters into his own hands at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Cross Country championships in Kamloops on Nov. 12. The Augustana Vikings runner placed second in the province for most of the year. Last year, he was sixth at nationals. However, Andrew was not going to pass up another opportunity to be the best runner in Canada. This was his race to win and he vowed

to be the first of 224 runners to cross the line. Jodi Sanquin of Red Deer College finished first in the women’s five kilometre event with a t ime of 18:10, after an exciting finish in the final lap. She passed the race leader Vicky Siemon of Humber College, who finished with a t ime of 18:13. The men’s eight km race featured top notch runners from across the country, and Andrew had the best time at 25:30. He

was part of a g roup of five runners who kept the lead pace for the four laps. “It feels amazing,” Andrew said after the race in Kamloops. “I’ve been beaten all year and to pull it out at national’s feels great.” He added that it was the biggest achievement in his running career. He trailed Clint Smith of Fanshawe College for most of the race, but took over the lead in the last lap. Smith finished with a time of 25:41.

“Clint won the race for me; he was doing all the work in the first two laps. Full credit to him, he’s a g reat runner,” Andrew said. Placing third was Lethbridge College runner Peter Kayla with a time of 25:52. Peter edged Andrew during several Alberta races this fall. Andrew didn't have a l ot of time to celebrate. He reported to the Augustana snow camp in Canmore for cross-country skiing training.

Norovirus circulating: Albertans need to take precautions A recent increase in gastro-intestinal illnesses, including Norovirus, across the Central Zone has prompted Alberta Health Services (AHS) to remind area residents of important precautions to reduce the spread of illness. Norovirus is a viral infection that occurs throughout the year, most commonly in the winter. Symptoms almost always include vomiting and/or diarrhea and may include muscle aches and low-grade fever. Although symptoms usually last only

48 to 72 hours, and in most cases require no special treatment, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Central Zone Medical Officer of Health, says the virus can be debilitating for the very young, the very old, and those with weakened immune systems. “Anyone who is ill, or suspects they might be ill, should stay home from work, refrain from visiting loved ones in seniors’ residences and other facilities, and refrain from preparing food for others. Children who are experiencing GI symptoms

should also stay home from school or daycare until feeling better,” says Dr. Hinshaw. “In addition, if anyone in your household is ill with Norovirus-like symptoms, please limit visits to hospitals or care residences, even if you yourself are feeling well.” Gastro-intestinal illnesses, and particularly Norovirus, can spread quickly, most often through close contact with an infected individual or by eating food prepared by someone who is ill with the infection. Dr. Hinshaw rec-

ommends a f ew simple precautions to help people stay healthy and avoid illness. Always wash your hands after using the bathroom; after providing care to an ill person; after handling soiled laundry; and before handling food. Individuals experiencing vomiting and/or diarrhea should NOT: Attend schools or child care facilities. Attend work. Visit seniors’ residences, continuing care facilities or hospitals.

Prepare food for others. For more information, call Health Link Alberta toll-free at 1.866.408.LINK (5465). Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than 3.7 million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is t o provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.

GMC Terrain More of everything

By Dan Jensen

The 2012 GMC Terrain at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC gives you greater fuel efficiency, more broad-shouldered style, more advanced powertrain technology, more up to the minute features, and more warranty protection. "It's a v ery impressive vehicle," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The GMC terrain is winner of the Consumers' Digest Best Buy Award and a 2011 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Contemporary design

Visually, the Terrain cabin showcases the best in contemporary design with clean lines, refined shapes and premium textures. There's also an abundance of space here, so f ive adults can ride in comfort, even on longer journeys. Long-legged passengers will particularly appreciate Terrain's multi-flex rear seat, which slides forward and back up to 200 mm. The subtly-bolstered driver's seat strikes just the right balance of comfort and support, and the thick-rimmed wheel tilts and telescopes to help you find precisely the right driving position. Climate control and a s tandard air filtration system help everyone breathe easy, and cupholdlers are conveniently positioned in the centre console doors and rear centre armrest. Terrain is also designed for the unique requirements of modern life, with no fewer than four 12-volt power outlets for powering mobile phones, laptops and other elec-

tronic necessities. Large, clear analogue gauges are supplemented by a multi-function Driver Information Centre. There's even an oil life monitoring system that may help save you money by reducing oil change frequency, protect your engine from premature wear, and reduce your carbon footprint. Cargo

With Terrain, transporting cargo of all shapes and sizes is a b reeze. Behind the MultiFlex second row seats there are almost 900 lites of space for groceries, luggage and sports gear. When you have bulkier items to contend with, the rear seats are a 6 0/40 split-folding design, so you can carry your cargo and up to two rear passengers at the same time. Or you can fold both seatbacks down and more than double the available cargo space to a v ery accommodating 1,809 litres. SLE-2 and SLT models also feature standard roof rails that make it easy to attach a variety of racks and cargo boxes. For even bigger challenges – hauling the boat or snowmobile up to the cottage, for instance – Terrain is rated to tow trailers up to 1,588 kg when properly equipped. Performance

Terrain blends the utility of an SUV with on-road dynamics that will please any enthusiastic driver. With a standard 182-horsepower direct-injected engine paired with a s ix-speed automatic transmission, Terrain's acceleration is spirited. Its efficiency is impressive, too, with fuel consumption of just 9.2 litres per 100 km in the city and a

Pete Pastuck McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC mere 6.1 litres per 100 km on the highway. Drivers looking for even more muscle will gravitate to the available direct-injected 3.0 litre V6, which puts out 264 horsepower and 222 pounds-feet or torque. A so phisticated fourwheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS ensure that Terrain's handling and braking are a m atch for its engine performance. Keeping you connected

When it comes to entertainment, information and communication, the GMC Terrain gets straight As. Features include Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, a CD s tereo with MP3 playback, a c olour touch screen that features album art display, six speakers, a USB port and Sirius Satellite Radio. Backing into

tight parking spaces has never been easier than it is with Terrain's standard rear vision camera with display in the seven-inch colour touch-screen of the audio system. It also takes the stress out of hooking up a trailer. The available rear DVD entertainment system includes twin seatback-mounted colour screens, auxiliary audio/video inputs for gaming systems, a 40-gigabyte hard drive for downloading music files, and time shifting. It has your back

Think of Terrain as your high-tech steel-and-glass bodyguard. It's equipped to help you avoid danger, with four-wheel disc brakes, a St abiliTrak electronic stability control system, and available intelligent all-

wheel drive that makes the most of available traction. It's on your side if a c rash can't be avoided, protecting you with six standard airbags and a s turdy steel safety cage around the passenger compartment. SLT models also offer the additional reassurance of available lane departure warning and forward collision alert. You can even count on the Terrain to look after you when the collision is over. OnStar's Automatic Crash Navigation feature informs a t rained advisor who can then dispatch the emergency services you may need directly to your location. You can see the 2012 GMC Terrain at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC, 3850-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780672-2355 and ask for a friendly sales professional.

Kodiaks' Jardine leads Team Canada West to a come from behind gold medal victory By Murray Green

When Camrose Kodiaks' defenseman Sam Jardine, as a member of team Canada West, said he was coming back with a gold medal from the 2011 World Junior A Challenge, he meant it. Prior to his departure, Sam said he wouldn't settle for a fourth place finish like last time. He wanted a medal to bite into. "Any time you can wear the Maple Leaf, it is a thrill. You never know how many times that you

will have the honour to represent your country," said Sam. "I want to take the full advantage of the opportunity. We didn't win a medal last year. Hopefully this year we will come home with some hardware." Team Canada West defeated Team Canada East in the championship final game 4-2 on Sunday, Nov. 13. Although Jardine recorded only one assist in the championship contest, his solid defence was

enough for Team Canada West throughout the event. The 2011 World Junior A Challenge was held in Langley, B.C., from Nov. 7 to 13. The gold medal victory for Team Canada West was the first time a C anadian team has won a gold medal since the West defeated the eastern team four years ago. It was the third time in the tournament’s six-year history that Canada West has won the gold medal. Alex Kerfoot scored a g oal and added an assist for Canada

West, while Carson Cooper (of the Fort McMurray Oil Barons) scored the game-winning goal on a power play 40 seconds into the third period. Evan Richardson and Aaron Hadley scored the other tallies. The gold medal victory by Team Canada West was the first by a club after going winless in the preliminary round. Jardine was selected in the 2011 NHL entry draft by the Chicago Blackhawks in the sixth round, 169th overall.

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, in conjunction with an Alberta Utilities Commission led consultation with industry stakeholders and social service agencies, has developed guidelines for the sharing of personal information in the event of disconnection of natural gas or electricity services. The guidelines are designed to assist energy retailers in determining when they can share personal information with other businesses or with family or friends of an individual to facilitate reconnection of energy services. The guidelines balance the privacy of the individual with the expectation that information can be shared in certain circumstances without the consent of the individual to facilitate reconnection of their energy services. The guidelines outline several sections of the Personal Information Protection Act whereby consent is required to share personal information between organizations. The guidelines also outline circumstances when information can be shared without consent, such as when an individual is deemed at risk as a r esult of the disconnection of their natural gas or electricity services during winter.

Party planning includes a safe driving strategy For better or worse, the consumption of alcoholic beverages is routine at holiday celebrations across the country. Unfortunately, many lives are lost each year due to drinking and driving. If you are hosting a h oliday celebration, there are steps you can take to ensure your guests don't become a holiday statistic.

provide free cab rides or make arrangements to have designated drivers available. You can also request that guests who plan on drinking make arrangements for a ride beforehand or that they surrender their car keys upon arrival and return them only to a sober driver. Another option is to have an air mattress, fold-out couch or other accommodations available for guests to stay over if necessary.

Plan Ahead

When planning your party, it's safe to assume that there will be guests who should not be driving home. Many communities have "Sober Ride" programs during the holidays. These programs

mind that salty snacks tend to make people thirsty and encourage them to drink more. Be sure there are nonalcoholic options for non-drinkers and designated drivers. When serving drinks to your guests, here are some things to keep in mind. * If preparing an alcoholic punch, use a non-carbonated base. Alcohol is absorbed faster with a carbonated base. * Never serve someone under the legal drinking age or allow minors to serve guests. * Don't let guests mix their own drinks. Designate a reliable

"bartender" to keep track of who is drinking and how much. * Do not encourage drinking. It's not essential to a good time. * Be a go od host by staying within your limits so you can be sure your guests stay within theirs. * Close the bar 90 minutes before the party ends and serve a dessert with coffee. * Remember that only time can sober someone who has been drinking. Friends Don't Let Friends ... Ever!

Our Mission Statement

4709-36 Street, Camrose, AB 780-672-7231 www.autoshoppe.ca

"To provide an environment which allows our people to deliver the best possible product and experience to our customers."

Kodiaks participate in Read To Succeed Program Submitted by Darcy Steen Camrose Kodiaks Over the past few weeks, the Camrose Kodiaks have embarked on a ma jor community relations initiative called the ‘DQ Grill and Chill – Read To Succeed’ program, where the players and staff of the Camrose Kodiaks are actively promoting literacy to the Camrose and area youth! The program coincides with the reading curriculum that was implemented in the month of October for the Battle River School Division and Elk Island School Division.

“The DQ Grill and Chill – Read To Succeed is one of the Kodiaks’ flagship community relations programs,” said Kodiaks Assistant General Manager, Darcy Steen. “The goal of many of the Kodiaks' players is to continue their educational pursuits in the form of a scholarship, while still playing hockey at a high level. Literacy and education are the foundation of our program, and it is important for us as an organization to educate the youth in Camrose and surrounding area about the importance of gaining these skills at an early age.”

In an effort to best promote the program, and to further the Kodiaks' commitment to the community, players and staff of the Camrose Kodiaks are visiting each one of the elementary schools in the city of Camrose. This includes Sparling, St. Patrick, Sifton, Chester Ronning, and Jack Stuart elementary schools. During these school visits, the Kodiaks' players are reading to the classrooms, targeting the age groups of Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2. The teachers in each school are more than happy to support the initiative, and have

the students engaged in setting and achieving their reading goals. Students who reach their reading goals are eligible to win prizes from the Camrose Kodiaks. In an effort to further support the program, the Kodiaks' players have been delivering to each of the Camrose elementary schools, a generous collection of Kodiak bookmarks. Every single student from Kindergarten through Grade 6 in these schools will receive a bookmark, which also happens to contain a special coupon for the DQ Grill and Chill in Camrose.

The Tundra boasts J.D. Power-award winning dependability. Our apologies to Prairie mechanics, many of whom have never seen one in their shop.

The ‘DQ Grill and Chill – Read To Succeed’ program will continue with a f ew more school visits over the next couple of weeks. Upon conclusion, the Camrose Kodiaks will announce winners of the program, and will celebrate another year of success in this important and fulfilling community initiative. For more information on this initiative, and the numerous other community initiatives in which the Kodiaks are involved, please click on www. camrosekodiaks.com/community.

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

For Want Ad service, please phone 780-672-3142 before six on Friday Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and color are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here, to help you get the results you deserve.

Province gives schools a real SuperNet boost By Murray Green

Students and teachers will have quicker access to educational resources thanks to government funding to increase network connection speed in schools. “Our students and teachers require access to digital resources and online content in their daily learning environments,” said Premier Alison Redford. “This investment ensures our education system is better positioned to respond to the increasing use of technology by students and teachers in the classroom.” Government will inject $1.3 million to help school boards across the province increase SuperNet capacity. Funding for each school will increase about $200 per month and result in faster services and lower network costs. School superintendent Dr. Larry Payne was excited about the news. "Battle River School Division is grateful to the government of Alberta for continuing to invest resources into education and the future of our children." The Internet speed will help all students. “The speed for technology use for our students and teachers has just increased significantly,” said Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk. “Today’s students and teachers need adequate capacity to effectively use learning tools such as streaming video and personal devices.” SuperNet is a c ritical piece of technology infrastructure that connects Alberta’s almost 600,000 students and teachers and more than 1,800 schools with the world. "BRSD has a number

of initiatives underway that will benefit from this additional funding, such as increased availability of video streaming and making the shift to student-owned devices in our schools," said Dr. Payne. “Alberta’s SuperNet connects 429 communities with more than 12,000 kilometres of fibre-optic cable and wireless infrastructure, giving classrooms, libraries and other public facilities around the province access to unparalleled video-conferencing and a ra nge of Internet services,” said Service Alberta Minister Manmeet Bhullar. “This additional funding helps classrooms realize the full potential of the SuperNet.” Increased SuperNet capacity also supports government’s commitment to a more inclusive education system. A rural school, for example, can better connect students via video conference to specialized service providers, such as speech language pathologists who might not be available directly in the community. "The 21st century learning – w hich includes technology – is o ne of the four big areas of focus for Battle River School Division. This increased funding very much supports the work BRSD is doing," added Dr. Payne. "Our school division includes several small schools in very rural communities. Rural Alberta faces challenges in accessing the Internet, and the SuperNet provides that access to schools, which is very important to us. We rely more and more on the internet to bring resources and experiences from around the globe into our east central Alberta classrooms.”

Atom Buffaloes capture Tier 4 title By Murray Green

Once the atom Camrose Buffaloes received a taste of victory, there was no stopping the herd on Nov. 5. Camrose trampled the Spruce Grove Cougars 32-6 in the Tier 4 f inal game in Sherwood Park. The Buffaloes were feeling confident because they defeated Spruce Grove earlier in the season. "It was a t eam effort with everyone contributing. After scoring on their first drive, the defence shut the door and the Cougars never saw the end zone again," said coach Fitz Sherman. "Our defence punished the Cougars all game long, making numerous jarring tackles and coming up big on several short third down plays."

Camrose clicked on offence all game. "We threw for one completion of 30 yards and ran the ball effectively. They were taking away the sweeps, so w e started running up the middle and when they adjusted, we ran sweeps," added Fitz. Both the offensive and defensive lines were able to control and dominate the trenches. "You can't win football games if your line is not doing its job and our linemen came to do a f ull day's work." Although it was a t eam effort, Camrose had some players who stood out. Teryll Sherman, the leader all year long, played quarterback and linebacker, scored all of the Camrose points and made numerous punish-

ing tackles. Tanner Woody, the centre and linebacker, made several key plays and opened big holes up the middle. Hailey McKechnie, playing tailback, fullback and outside linebacker had a couple of long runs and a go od catch. "Our line opened and plugged holes with passion and made numerous tackles." Fitz praised coach Harold, manager Kari McCarthy and trainer Stephen Kaack for helping this season. "I w ould also like to thank all the parents who helped throughout the season; last but not least, all the players for their time and effort. Congratulations on their Tier 4 championship. I knew they could win it."

The co-operators owner Mike Keleman presented Jesalyn Clarkson with a donation to go towards the Camrose Titans U-18 girls' soccer team that will be going on a 10-day tour of Scotland, Wales and England to experience international games next summer. To help sponsor the team, contact coach Paul Stone at 780-608-9825.

Grade 6 École Sifton School students Graham Walger, Jurnee Niehaus and student teacher Cassandra McMann display a poster and pennies collected for Krista Borgfjord. The former student was severely injured in an accident last summer and remains in a Vancouver hospital. Donations are accepted at the school, Charlie Killam School and at the CIBC bank in Camrose.

Sifton students collect pennies for Krista

44

By Murray Green Students at École Sifton School in Camrose are collecting pennies for Krista Borgfjord. Krista, a former student, graduated from the Camrose Composite High School last spring and was badly hurt in a car accident during the summer. She is s till in a Vancouver area hospital recovering. "All of the classes are going to have a jar in their classroom to collect pennies and then we will combine them into one big jar," explained student teacher Cassandra McMann. "The classes are competing together and pennies are points," explained Cassandra. "Other classes are allowed to bring in change such as dimes, quarters and loonies. If someone from say Grade 1 came in and put a qu arter in our jar, it would be minus 25 points for our Grade 6 class." Cassandra helped start the project with student Jurnee Niehaus, who is a friend of the Borgfjord family. "We are putting a jar at the front office area and one at Charlie Killam School, so if people in the community want to make a donation, they are able to do that," said Cassandra. After completing her practical training with Grade 6 teacher Craig Jensen, the former Augustana and current University of Alberta student, will be finished her schooling. "The Borgfjord family has been a very big help to the school and the community. The family has been staying in hotels ever since summer and we wanted to help them because they are sad. They have been out there for at least two months. She (Krista) wasn't doing so good for a while and having some tough times and was on the edge of not making it. She had a lot of surgeries, but she is pretty good now. They think she is going to live," said Jurnee. "It will be a year or two before she is normal again." Cassandra added, "They are hoping to transfer her to Camrose soon, but she will still be in the hospital for a long time. She will be in rehab for awhile. They are not sure if she can walk yet or how much memory loss she has." Jurnee is hoping the funds raised can help pay for the hotel bills. "It can go t o paying for the hotel or anything she needs, like a wheelchair or medicine." A family trust fund was started at CIBC in Camrose and donations can be made at the bank. Fellow Grade 6 s tudent Graham Walger was the first to donate to the fund. "Jurnee's mom (and friends) set up the trust fund and she came in and explained what happened. I want to be involved and wanted to donate. We are collecting for a week, starting on Nov. 28 to Dec. 2."
