Around Camrose, in homes and in businesses,

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Consumers are counting heavily on the vast selection, exemplary service, ease of parking and impressive diversity of business in this city for 2011 Christmas shopping. Wouldn't you know it – even Santa Claus has been spotted in the community, snapping up bargains in preparation for his pending world-wide run on Christmas Eve. On one such stop, he needed the help of the local Dodge boys to load and transport a bulging sack of toys back to his famous workshop way up north.

Businesses being surveyed By Dan Jensen

6223B-48 Ave., Camrose • Ph. 780-678-2171 Located behind Royal LePage

The Career Assistance Network is conducting a survey of medium-sized businesses (100 or fewer employees). "Camrose is one of the communities in which we are trying to identify recruitment and retention issues at some of the key primary industries," said Career Assistance Network employer recruitment and retention services coordinator Carey Keleman at the Camrose Chamber of Commerce meeting Dec. 7. Data collected by the survey will help the government determine whether there is a need for additional education opportunities, be they at colleges, apprenticeship programs or trade schools. It will also assist with the development of a community-specific resource guide with contact information for agencies and personnel that can help employers and employees address identified skill deficits. "Basically it will help us better prepare for the next economic boom, and provide more resources for employers," stated Keleman. Completed surveys may be returned to Keleman via either fax 403-704-2395 or email once they have been scanned at carey@rdcan. ca.

Camrose falling behind on building permits By Dan Jensen

Camrose is struggling to hold its own with other communities of similar size in terms of building permit values. A report presented to City council last week by Engineering Services acting general manager Jeremy Enarson showed that Camrose building permits totalled just $24,788,889 at the end of the first ten months of 2011, compared to $165,468,033 for the City of Lloydminster (Alberta/Saskatchewan combined), $114,230,359 for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, and $27,769,912 for the Town of Stony Plain. The overall totals for Camrose were higher than those for the Town of Olds and the City of Wetaskiwin, which had ten month building permit totals of $19,750,300 and $17,937,565 respectively. Residential permits

Camrose residential permits totalled $20,867,056 at the end of October, compared to $42,538,282 for all of last year. Commercial permits totalled $1,207,565 at the end of October, compared to $3,044,433 at the end of 2010, while institutional permits were $671,048 at the end of October, down from $4,616,345 at the end of 2010. The value of industrial permits issued to the end of October was $2,043,220, up from $851,000 at the end of 2010. Residential permits values at the end of October were $12,477,412 for Olds, $20,109,912 for the Town of Stony Plain, $14,939,385 for the City of Wetaskiwin and $67,405,289 for the City of Lloydminster. The residential permit value for Wetaskiwin at the end of 2010 totalled $6,434,597. The value of commercial permits issued to the end of October was $2,512,818 for the Town of Olds, $3,290,000 for the Town of Stony Plain, $1,542,510 for the City of Wetaskiwin, and $16,608,107 for the City of Lloydminster. Dismayed

Councillor John Howard questioned whether Camrose was doing anything wrong to have such low numbers in comparison to other communities, or if it was simply Camrose's year to be down. "I think all of us on council are a l ittle bit nervous about where we are with this whole process," he said, "because in a lot of our budgeting we talk about new growth and there is not a lot of it to celebrate." Councillors were reminded they should not look at commercial, industrial and institutional permits for just one year alone as the numbers can change drastically from year to year depending on the projects that have been initiated.

City eyeing reserves to eliminate golf deficit By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose could be dipping into reserves to pay the deficit on the Camrose Golf Course. City administration has recommended draws of $2,120,000 from the general operating reserve, $1,162,628 from the general capital reserve and $457,000 from the gravel royalty reserve to dig the Camrose facility out of a major hole that at the present time stands at approximately $3,700,000. City manager Damian Herle told council Dec. 5 t hat capital improvements and equipment purchases not funded by the tax levy have allowed the golf course deficit to grow over the years. "This deficit, which has yet to be funded by the City, has occurred either slowly or quickly over the years, depending on what a person's perception would be," he said.

"Administration strongly believes that we address this matter and clear if off the books." The draws would reduce the general operating fund reserves to $1,291,667 (four per cent of the total 2012 budget) and the general capital fund reserve to $677,920 (2.97 per cent of the total capital budget). Payback

Administration is recommending the funds be restored over time with a certain yearly contribution over a number of years, the amount of which is to be determined by council in the new year. "Starting in 2013 there will be a $100,000 already included in the golf course budget (due to a maturing debenture) that can be reallocated to this purpose," said Herle. "In addition, an amount would be required to rebuild the general capital reserve." Councillor Max Lindstrand supported the idea of using

reserves and getting the golf course deficit cleared away so it can move forward on a break even basis. "This is a p roblem that has been growing for a n umber of years," he said. Camrose Community Services general manager Paul Nielsen said it is t he plan of the golf course to break even on operations once the debenture is cleared away in 2013. "There are variables that are beyond our control but certainly we can control costs. We project revenues conservatively and it is our intent to get as close as possible if not break even on an annual basis." No commitments

Nielsen told council there was never any motion made that tax dollars would not be used to supplement the operations of the golf course. "There was an initial capital

program put in place when the City took over the golf course that said the golf course would repay expenditures. It spoke nothing about future operations or capital investments." According to City information the City of Camrose assumed ownership of the Camrose Golf Course in 1996, along with a d ebenture of annual payments of $105,000 per year for eight years. Significant capital improvements, however, occurred through the years 1999 and 2001, which resulted in two additional debentures totalling $2,075,000. "During the past 16 years that the City has owned and operated the golf course, no amounts were included in the annual operating or capital budgets (no impact on the tax levy), explained Herle in a report. Each year the funding was provided by a reserve, resulting in a deficit balance. The reserve

has been offset with other reserves but not specifically funded." Nielsen told council that the golf course may have to be a l ittle more creative in the future in terms of attracting more revenues from those who use the golf course. "We offer two-for-one deals which is not typically a good business practice unless you have some very quiet times at the course, where basically you are giving away golf as a way to attract people." Nielsen estimates the twofor-one deals mean the golf course basically gives away $25,000 every year. Councillor Howard said the City of Camrose is ba sically spending three and a half million of taxpayers' money on buying a golf course. "It is a go od deal, the golf course is w orth way more than that and I don't have a problem with that."

Appointed committee to review north-south transmission lines By Murray Green

The Alberta government has appointed an independent panel of experts to review plans for two proposed high-voltage transmission lines between the Edmonton and Calgary regions, AltaLink's WATL (Western Alberta Transmission Line) and ATCO's EATL (Eastern Alberta Transmission Line) to be built east of Daysland. The announcement has certainly received mixed views. "The problem is t hat the panel is n ot independent if they are government appointed," said Marion Leithead of Bawlf. "It is an oxymoron. Not only that, the appointed panel members have previous ties to and/or are beholding to government or electrical companies. Our call for an independent review has not been met." The committee will review the Alberta Electric System Operator’s (AESO) assessment of the electricity transmission requirements, in the east part of the province, the selection of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology, and the time lines of the planned northsouth lines. The panel will make recommendations to the government by Feb. 10, 2012, taking into account all factors including cost and industry competitiveness. “Alberta’s complex transmission system must support our industries’ ever-increasing demand for power without impacting their competitiveness,” Energy Minister Ted Morton said. “We must be certain we meet the growing electricity needs of Albertans, but also keep the price of electricity affordable.” Price comparisons between Bawlf, Kelowna, BC, and Saskatoon, SK show that Albertans pay three times what people in Kelowna pay, and 1.6 times as much as those in Saskatoon pay for exactly the same 659 kwh ($146.21, vs $ 49.43 and $92.69 respectively). During the PC leadership campaign, Morton admitted that

the lines are not needed, and also stated that they were for export purposes. During this fall session in the Legislature debate, he claimed the transmission lines have not been updated in 25 years. However, Alberta Electrical System Operators (AESO) told its stakeholders they had completed nine upgrades in 2009 and according to an AESO e-mail (June, 2008) lines in Alberta are built to last upwards of 60 to 70 years. A WECC web site reported lines built in 1918 are still in service after 90 years, with only modest modifications. Alberta should be wary about claims that existing lines need replacing. Hopefully the appointed fourperson panel will also consider public input by reviewing previously received landowner feedback as well as consult with specifically identified organizations representing landowners, electricity producers, and both large and small consumers. Panelists will also obtain and consider expert advice from the AESO. However, AESO board members are also appointed by the government. “Our role is to ensure that all factors have been carefully considered, including cost to consumers and impact on industry,” said committee chair Brian Heidecker, former government appointed chair of the University of Alberta board of governors. “We look forward to the challenge ahead of us and to the opportunity to provide comment and recommendations to the Government of Alberta.” The other members of the panel are Dr. Roy Billinton, Dr. Joseph Doucet and Henry Yip. Both Doucet and Yip have worked for or have been appointed to other government boards in the past. Opposing lawyer Keith Wilson said that "Denmark's economy grew 70 per cent after 1980, but their electrical consumption remained virtually unchanged. The Alberta government has not proved that we need the additional lines." Continued on page 11

NEW RESCUE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE DEPARTMENT

Lowell Befus, from Farm Credit Canada (in the basket) and Joe Mah, from the Camrose Fire Department, demonstrated the workings of a p ulley and bridle system that can be used by t he emergency workers to conduct rescues from deep and narrow areas like deep pits. The equipment was funded by a $500 donation from Farm Credit Canada.

Dog off-leash area moved By Dan Jensen

The back n ine of the Camrose Golf Course is back in use as a winter dog off-leash area. The golf course was designated as an off-leash area on a trial basis last winter. "It was thought it could serve well as an off-leash area during the winter months, providing a much improved experience over the only other designated area, being the dry pond north of the Cornerstone development (north of Safeway)," said a Dec. 5 report to City council by Camrose Com-

munity Services general manager Paul Nielsen. "There were no issues reported from dog owners or cross country skiers in terms of sharing the golf course for their respective areas. There were also no detrimental effects on the golf course itself from an aesthetic or functional standpoint." The golf course was closed to both off-leash and skiing uses in April, and in June council designated a p ortion of the Stoney Creek Valley as a d og off-leash area. The use of a d esignated

valley portion as a dog off-leash area is c urrently being evaluated and further input is b eing sought. "Pending completion of the evaluation, no firm conclusion or recommendations regarding future use of the valley for dog off-leash can be made at this time," said Nielsen. The Stoney Creek Valley trails reverted back to use b y cross country skiers with the arrival of snow in mid November. As a result, all dog off-leash access to this area has been closed.

The Magic Of Christmas!

Laurie Mills, from the Windwood Group, installed 18 Camrose Chamber of Com merce signs along the Mirror Lake and Stoney Creek Valley walking trails last week. By Dan Jensen

Phone 780-679-0900 Duggan Mall, Camrose

The first 18 signs along the Camrose Chamber of Commerce historical walking tour were installed by the Windwood Group last week. The signs identify the estimated location of and provide information about former Camrose landmarks, including Ole Bakken's homestead, the first coal-fired generating plant, the original highway crossing of Mirror Lake, the first natural gas well, the original water treatment plant, the trenches where First World War veterans were trained, and Stoney Creek Colleries. The signs are compatible with the ones that already exist in the Mirror Lake and Stoney Creek Valley. The Camrose Chamber of Commerce provided $10,000 for the signs as a 100th anniversary project in 2008. Three more signs will be installed at a later date. The first meeting of citizens of Camrose to discuss the possibility of forming the Camrose Board of Trade (now the Camrose Chamber of Commerce) was held on April 3, 2008. The Board of Trade was officially incorporated on June 10, 1910. The name was changed to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce on March 9, 1961.

Committee to review north south rail lines Continued from page 6

In October, Morton asked the commission to suspend all action and the pending hearings on the EATL and WATL lines until after the government completes its review. Originally, action on the Heartland line was also to be suspended. However, the initial news release was quickly altered due to some"miscommunication" and the p roposed Heartland Line was approved, and allowed to proceed. However, the EATL and WATL Applications, for transmission line projects with capacites between 1,000 and 4,000 megawatts, originally set for public hearings in November (2011) and January (2012), are still before the Alberta Utilities Commission, and have just been suspended until after the panel submits its report in February.

CARRIERS A great deal off teamwork is essential to successfully bring news of community happenings, commercial events and opportunities to residents of Camrose on a regular and dependable basis. Perhaps the most critical part of the team is the group responsible for distribution. Without the successful completion of their phase, all the efforts of sales, graphic design, news, production, and printing are for nothing. The individuals who represent our distribution group face the elements throughout the year — wind and rain, sleet and snow, hot and cold — to bring The Booster and various other material and samples to your door. They are the most faithful, diligent and reliable group of people we could hope to find. We praise them and thank them for jobs well done!

Doug Schwartz Circulation Manager

In spite of the fact that our carriers call at each residence in Camrose at least twice a week, many householders never see them. The carriers who deliver The Booster on Tuesdays and accomplish our Thursday deliveries as required are shown here. By matching the route numbers on the map with the pictures, readers may identify the person who delivers in their area.

Truckers still eligible to apply for provincial rebates Alberta truckers have until the end of 2011 to apply for energy efficiency rebates – saving fuel and helping the environment. In the past year, the program has resulted in an estimated 5.6 million litres of fuel saved. Fleet owners and operators are still eligible for rebates of up to $60,000 each before Trucks of Tomorrow, the Government of Alberta’s commercial vehicle incentive program, comes to its prescribed end. So far, trucking rebates

totaling more than $600,000 have been distributed to Albertabased commercial vehicle owner-operators and fleet managers who installed fuel efficiency and aerodynamic equipment on heavy-duty vehicles. The total represents an estimated 15,300 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions avoided. After a successful run, Light it Right, the provincial commercial lighting incentive program also comes to an end on December 31.

Since launching in summer 2010, these programs have resulted in the avoidance of more than 20,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. This is the equivalent of removing approximately 3,500 cars from the road annually. For more information or to apply for a t rucking rebate, Albertans can contact the program administrator, C3 (formerly Climate Change Central), online at www.C-3.ca or by phone at 1-888-537-7202.

KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE THIS HOLIDAY The holiday season is a time of high fire risk! Fires, injuries, death and property losses increase significantly during the holidays. Heating, candles, cooking, and smoking cause the majority of fires during the holiday season. Practice fire safety in all of your holiday season activities by keeping the following in mind: • Keep your natural Christmas tree moist and away from heat sources. • Keep decorations away from lights and candles. • Keep matches, candles and lighters away from children. • Don’t overload your electrical circuits. • Don’t place space heaters too close to combustible items. • Test your smoke alarms. • Plan and practice a home fire escape plan.

Yoga instruction took the place of gym time at St. Patrick elementary school in Camrose last week. Students from all grades were shown how they can use poses like Cobra and Downward Dog, chants and meditation techniques to manage their stress, overcome test anxiety and navigate peer pressures, such as bullying. "They were just floored at what the meditations and relaxations were doing for them," said Michelle Ball, a c ertified school teacher, who presented the Yoga Submarine program along with youth yoga instructor and Camrose yoga studio operator Sandy Veilleux. "They couldn't believe how peaceful they were when they were leaving the classroom. They were getting a good physical workout with the yoga instruction at the beginning and they are getting real peace of mind at the end." "I had one Grade 3 boy come up to me today and say that yoga is the best thing he has ever done." Ball and Veilleux were quickly able to build an atmosphere in which all the students felt accepted. "The students were able to sit and meditate completely without fear of ridicule from their peers," said Ball. "They learned that regardless of how they do at sports or other things everyone is good at yoga." Ball and Veilleux used songs, stories and stuffed animals with the younger children to get them to feel comfortable with what they were doing. "In their meditations they were asked to imagine that they were riding on a cl oud or going through a rainbow and to think of how their body felt when they were doing that," explained Veilleux. By spending time shutting out outside distractions, students were able to discover and connect with their inner voice. "The inner voice is rea lly just intuition – that voice that

says something is n ot right and causes you go back and find that the stove was left on," said Ball. "That is what we were telling the kids to listen to. When we do that we feel braver, stronger and more courageous. We operate from our higher selves when we are able to listen to our intuition." Ball and Veilleux noticed a big change in the atmosphere of the school over the six days they did their instruction. "The school was great to begin with after the classes they started bonding with each other in new ways," said Ball. "The buzz in the hallways was pretty impressive. We heard they were going home and teaching their parents the songs, chants and yoga poses they had been doing at school." Ball and Veilleux will be taking their Yoga Submarine program to C.W. Sears School at

Tofield in February, and hope to go into other Battle River School Division Schools as schedules permit. They have already been to Camrose Composite High School, where they received glowing reviews from Career and Life Management teacher Todd Markowsky. "The classes were very well organized with the equipment prepared before the students arrived," said Markowsky. "The students were engaged quickly and began the experience with little hesitation. The presence of two instructors allowed the students to have two models to base their positions and techniques on, as well as receive immediate feedback about their progress. The instruction was very clear and the program was well received by the students. They would like to participate again."

Letters to the Editor FLOOR CURLING CHALLENGE CUP

The Bawlf Community Hall rang out with laughter, smiles and conversation on December 1 when the Alberta 55 plus Zone 4 Floor Curling Challenge Cup was held. Ten teams arrived from Lacombe, Big Valley, Mirror, Wetaskiwin, Mulhurst Bay, Camrose, Bittern Lake and Bawlf. The smell of homemade soups on the stove greeted the members as they arrived. After the last rock was thrown, the team of A llan and Delores Karpovich (Bittern Lake), Dennis and Joyce Meadahl (Camrose) emerged as the first place winners. Pictured on the right presenting the trophy is Marlene Maertens-Poole, assistant area director.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Focus on kindness A Muslim girl, named Nora Abou-Absi, wrote a letter to the Edmonton Journal (Dec. 8/11). Her comments were very timely and I liked the sentiments she expressed. She made reference to the recurring discussion about wishing people Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas. She says she likes “to be politically correct but not if it treads on the rights of others.” She adds that, “as multicultural as this country is, there needs to be a level of respect for all faiths.” It is her contention that to wish someone a Merry Christmas or the equivalent from another faith – such as Muslim’s Eid Mubarak – or Happy Holidays, neither takes away from her faith nor does it cause her any personal strife. She says, “I am still a Canadian Muslim before and after those two words.” She continued saying that she loves this time of year “because people focus more on kindness.” Then she puts the star on the top of the Christmas tree, figuratively speaking, with the words, “From this Muslim girl to everyone: may you have a merry and blessed Christmas.” I, Berdie, a non-Muslim, unhesitatingly respond with reciprocal respect for her faith, “Eid Mubarak,” which, roughly translated, means blessed festival, the highlight of which is gathering with family, much as non-Muslim Canadians celebrate their Christmas. I do so believing that all the world’s great religions have a common golden rule which says, in essence: Be kind to one another; treat others as you would have them treat you! In Saturday’s (Dec. 10/11) Edmonton Journal there was another letter from a Muslim resident of Canada, named Shahina Siddiqui, who, like Nora Abou-Absi, had been taught by Muslim parents “to respect other people’s faith so they will respect ours.” Shahina went on to say how the private non-Muslim Canadian school her son attended handled the diversity of faiths among the students: it started rotational readings from different scriptures. Shahina concludes her letter saying, “We can all co-exist harmoniously if we respect each other without hurting or compelling anyone.” Sunday’s Journal (Dec. 11/11) carried a letter from Sandy Kahlina-Katz, who is J ewish and owns a sh op in Sherwood Park. In the store Sandy plays not only secular holiday music but also traditional sacred Christmas music and Hanukkak music as well. Sandy does this because “these gorgeous pieces evoke the beautiful seasonal spirit that any of us feel at this time of year.” Sandy adds, “As members of a m ulticultural society, we can choose to feel included or excluded in the rites of the season. Participation in multiculturalism does not mean we have to pander to some common denominator. As Christmas approaches, may each of us spread goodwill with firm handshakes and sincere good wishes – whether we say Merry Christmas, Eid Mubarak, Happy Holidays or whatever. It’s the love and goodwill expressed by any of those words that counts, regardless of the religious tradition from which they come. In the spirit of the season, – peace and goodwill to all men – may we end the controversy about secular and/or religious traditions surrounding Christmas. Based on the letters above, Muslims and Jewish people have no problem sharing the customs and music of the Christian traditions associated with Christmas. That is the intent of multiculturalism – to be inclusive, not exclusive. So why do some Canadians feel our own traditional greeting and celebratory customs are being threatened? It’s time to stop the recurring discussion, continue to sing our carols and say Merry Christmas if that is our traditional preference, or Eid Mubarak or Happy Holiday – whatever jingles our bells. 'Tis the season to focus on kindness.

With legislation to destroy the single desk of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) having passed the House of Commons last week, Conservative MP Kevin Sorenson is singing soothing words that farmers will be able to count on the Board for the next five years. But farmers know better than to listen to siren songs. Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz told a c ommittee that he would celebrate the swift removal of the government backstop: “If they do it in two years, it'll be great.”[1] After it lost its monopoly, it only took two years before the Australian Wheat Board was sold off to Agrium. Small family farmers were crushed under the weight of multinationals and are leaving the business in droves. Don’t expect anything less swift and gruesome in Canada. Just ask the Minister. Frank Valeriote, MP, Liberal Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food Dear Editor:

I was under the impression that “fixed” election dates were reliable, dependable dates voters could count on and plan for – like the fixed date for America’s presidential elections: every four years on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November. Prior to being anointed Premier of Alberta, Alison Redford promised Albertans fixed election dates. It turns out, however, "fixed" means something different to Ms. Redford and the Progressive Conservative Party. Her version of fixed elections actually means having elections within a nebulous three-month period – b etween March 1 a nd May 31. “Fixed” doesn’t actually mean “fixed” (as in immovable) but flexible, in a so rt of cryptic way. Fixed election dates are quite common in Canada. We have them in seven provinces and in each “fixed” actually refers to a specific date upon which elections are held every four or five years. The flexibility in Alberta’s new “fixed election period” is a way for the governing party to maintain political advantage over other political parties in the province. M s. Redford has explained away her "fudging" by blaming the unpredictability of Alberta's weather. If Ms. Redford can predict the weather three months in advance, she is going to be a g reat leader. As for fol-

lowing through on promises, not so much. Even our federal government has legislated fixed election dates. Canada will have a federal election on October 19th, 2015. This trend toward positive democratic change is wonderful and truly helps level the political playing field. However, it makes Premier Redford's decision all the more odd. The PC party still seems to think political power is more important than a fair democratic process. It's great our premier wants to appear true to her word, but the PC's political games continue. Alberta still needs a rea l fixed election date – a c oncrete day every Albertan can depend upon. It’s the only fair and democratic way – even if it snows that day. Will Munsey Alberta Party, New Sarepta Dear Editor:

I have read an article in the Calgary Herald written by Don Braid which was about animosity running high in this legislature. According to this article, our fine Health Minister Horne said "This recurrent theme of innuendo and rumour with allegations of physical intimidation has become quite tiresome to this government." It is very interesting to read that the Healthy Quality counsel was investigating intimidation. A ccording to this article, the counsel has found evidence of intimidation. I may not be an expert of matters of our health care system, but I am personally getting a little tired of this government's attitude. I p ersonally do agree with the writer that it is time for another election in order to clear the air. I am sure many Albertans are getting tired of all the fighting which is h eld in our legislature. It is too bad that we have the government that we have now for the past forty years is still in power. I as an Albertan would like to see some changes in the next election. However it will be up to the majority of Albertans to decide to keep what we have or change to something better. What about a rea l conservative government spelled with a lower case c? Christmas is coming so fast up on us. I a m so excited about the coming of Christmas. Christmas is a t ime of reflection. We reflect on the meaning of Christmas and on the value of our families. If you do not have your health and your families, all the money in the world will mean nothing. I rea lly would like to challenge everybody to make a new year's resolution. I h ave done that for the past five years and have kept many of them. It is also a great way to make one's life a little bit better as we leave 2011. Lorne Vanderwoude Camrose Dear Editor: What's the Alberta Party up to?

Alberta Party President Brian Thiessen gives the answer:

In the last several months we have moved close to 2,500 members, we have approximately 50 constituency associations created, and nine candidates nominated to run in the next provincial election. We have a g reat core team of candidates, including: Danielle Klooster (InnisfailSylvan Lake), Michael Walters (Edmonton-Rutherford), Tim Osbourne (St. Albert), Sue Huff (Edmonton-Glenora), John Hudson (Edmonton - M cClung) and our Party Leader Glenn Taylor (West Yellowhead). We know that doing something right is m ore important than doing it fast. We understand that we could quickly grow the party with the disaffected representatives of other parties by sacrificing our principles. We simply will not compromise our beliefs, no matter what the short term gain. That’s not how you build a party that reflects the values of Albertans. Like most Albertans, the Alberta Party knows the value of good, honest, hard work; the work of building something right, that we can all be proud of. That’s why we worked so hard, and engaged so many Albertans in developing our detailed and comprehensive policies on Energy and the Environment, Health Care, Municipalities, and Education. We are also working hard on many other areas of key importance to Albertans including improving early education and child care opportunities for Alberta families. We could not be more proud to be working on issues that Albertans have told us are so important to them. They say imitation is t he greatest form of flattery. Other parties, including the governing party, have copied our organization, our communications and even our pub nights. Many of our policies are being copied as well, including our commitment to transparency in government, our call for a p ublic judicial inquiry into health care, (www.healthinquirynow.ca) and our commitment to fixed election dates. The problem with imitation is that it lacks the core ingredient of being genuine. The Alberta Party was founded on the principles of openness, transparency and democratic renewal. The Premier was elected to leadership of her party based on a platform that included many of the Alberta Party’s policies and principles. But keeping those promises and principles is much more difficult than making them in a party committed to their own survival. Dynasties are not change agents. The Alberta Party is a movement founded on these very positive principles, and we have no such restraints to change. We are more of a movement towards citizen engagement than a political party and our members are enthusiastic and genuine agents of change.

Wildrose Co-op shows support for Open Door toque campaign The Camrose Wildrose Co-op staff are wearing toques to show support for the Open Door and the Raising the Roof campaign. Although the Co-op gas bar has sold toques in the past, this is the first year they are available at the grocery store. Staff members, from left to right, Brent Edwards, Paul Samoisette, Todd Marcotte, Mark Moskie, Judy Stratichuk, Robin Brett, Mervin Hall, Kevin Baska, Mike Kambietz and Val Perry pr oudly wear the toques. The $10 toques are available at Wildrose Co-op and Gas Bars, Sears, Camrose Registry and the Open Door. Most (80 per cent) of the net proceeds stay in Camrose to help youth at risk and housing. National Toque Day is on Feb. 7.

"Tell the premier not to lift the cap on long term care fees" By Dan Jensen

Albertans need to write letters to new premier Alison Redford expressing their opposition to any plans to lift the cap on long term care fees, says James Darwish. "Tell the premier that you think it is premature to eliminate the cap on accommodation rates and ask her to intervene," said the retired Edmonton accountant and spokesperson for the Elder Advocates of Alberta during a presentation at the Royal Canadian Legion Nov. 29. Darwish said talk about lifting the rates for long term care so that private providers can make a g reater profit is u nsettling considering the fact there is still a class-action lawsuit before the Supreme Court of Canada (initiated by the Elder Advocates of Alberta in 2003), which claims Alberta Health Services is overcharging long term care residents for accommodation and meals, in contravention of the Alberta Health Act. "We should at least let the legal action take its course," said Darwish. "We have figures that show the accommodation rates are way too high." The Elder Advocates of Alberta began its legal action after the government increased the charge for accommodation and meals for the province's 14,400 nursing home and auxiliary hospital residents by 40 per

cent and 20 per cent over two consecutive years. "There was no improvement in accommodation and meals," said Darwish. "The government was taking advantage of the sick, frail and elderly." The Government of Alberta has provided conflicting messages about long term care over the last several years, starting with a letter dated October 23, 2004, in which the Minister of Health told Darwish that charges for accommodation were determined based on actual operating costs for room and board services over the previous nine years. Less than a year later, the then Auditor General stated that the department of health does not have a policy on the portion of accommodation charges that are the responsibility of the resident, what accommodation charges should consist of, or how to calculate the accommodation rates. "What the Auditor General told me was exactly the opposite of what the Minister said in the letter," said Darwish. In his most recent report, the Auditor General stated that the government has still not collected sufficient information about facility costs to make accommodation rates and funding decisions. "That he is saying that again now six years later is shocking," said Darwish. "That is ex actly why we commenced our legal action six years ago. We thought during this time at least the government would come up with

some figures to show what it (accommodation) really costs. It is time for all citizens to call upon our new premier to instruct the Auditor General to do a follow up of his report on seniors' care programs. The premier has a duty to the sick, frail and elderly citizens to ascertain if the department is doing a proper job." Darwish believes it is c ontrary to the Alberta Health Act to charge residents of long term care facilities for their accommodation. "These people are in a h ospital and many have been transferred directly from a hospital because of a sh ortage of hospital beds," he said. "Patients in these facilities require 24 hour care from a designated doctor, nurses, licenced practical nurses, qualified dietitians and supporting staff, the same as a h ospital. I m ean they are essentially in a h ospital. You could not get a senior into a n ursing home without a letter from the doctor. The patients are bedridden or in wheelchairs. Some are mobile but they wander because they may be in the early stages of senility or Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Typically they need help getting out of bed, toileting, dressing, help getting to the dining room and being fed when they get there." Darwish said it is unacceptable for residents of long term care facilities to have to pay $1,500 per month for a 2 00 square foot room when a 1 ,264 square foot apartment in Edmonton, includ-

ing stove, fridge, laundry area, exercise area, heat and water can be rented for just $1,469 per month. "If you are in a n ursing home, which is supposed to be free, you pay $1,500 per month for 200 square feet of space in a semi-private room. If husband and wife both require long term care, and that is n ot unusual, then each would pay $1,500 per month for a 31 day month for a total of $3,000. That is n ot just unreasonable, to me it is unacceptable. Believe me, that accommodation is a gold mine for the government. We are all being cheated here." Darwish said the normal response that was given by Premiers Klein and Stelmach to the high accommodation rates was that, for the majority of long term care residents, the rates are subsidized. "They said you shouldn't complain because once you have sold your house and used up all your investments, and once you have nothing left, they will pay your accommodation for you – that they don't put anybody out on the street. It is a t actic to put people down and stop them from complaining, and it is, I say, quite improper to do that. That is why they say with every increase in accommodation that the government subsidized the rent for 9,000 of the 14,400 patients in long term care. They believe by saying that it gets them off the hook."

Darwish said one of his favourite letters to the editor in The Edmonton Journal was one that suggested that if seniors in long term care traded places with prison inmates they would receive free accommodation and meals, constant video monitoring, bedding that is washed twice a week, meals and snacks, access to the library, free legal aid, a room with TV and radio. "In terms of lifestyle these seniors don't have one," he said. Darwish finished by noting that the lawsuit's ultimate goal is to ensure that the government remains accountable to seniors and those who are disabled. Camrose resident Elaine Twitchell, in a question and answer period after the presentation by Darwish, said that residents of the Louise Jensen care facility are not getting good value for the money they spend. "When you get into places like these you see there is no one there to help them with eating or going to the bathroom. It is not the fault of the staff but of administration and the provincial government." Seniors who need assistance in writing their letter to Premier Redford may contact Support Options for Seniors (SOS) in Camrose at 780-672-4131. The presentation was sponsored by the Association for Life-Wide Living, the Camrose Seniors' Coalition and Service Options for Seniors.

CMHA reflects on a year filled with triumph and tragedy By Dan Jensen

The Canadian Mental Health Association reflected on a year of triumph and tears at its annual general meeting Dec. 7. The triumph came in the form of strengthened partnerships with the Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta and the continued success of seven programs that support over 200 individuals. The tears came when CMHA employee Val Wolski lost her life in a t ragic incident involving a 25-year-old man with reduced mental capacity. "Words cannot begin to capture our sense of loss for Val

Wolski," said Craig Martin in his CMHA president's report. "We put much time and energy into piecing together what happened. A h eartfelt thank you to the community and many service providers who rallied around us in support in the days and weeks that followed." The tragedy prompted policy changes, new safety practices and additional security measures, and is l eading to new practices in information exchange between agencies. An Occupational Health and Safety Committee now meets monthly to review best practices, assessments and policy. The province has

announced a fa tality inquiry will take place upon the completion of the investigation of Alberta Health and Safety. "This will be a valuable step toward preventing future tragedies of this nature in Alberta," said Martin. The year started with five CMHA staff completing the Hope Studies Certificate through NorQuest College. "Our staff of 19 people have continued to display their dedication and commitment to our vision and mission," said Martin. I a m perpetually in awe of the hard work and passion that each staff member brings to the agency."

While there are definitely some good and some great renters in the marketplace, I suggest the percentage to be uncomfortably small. I have gone to the expense of this $400-plus advertisement in order to relay my latest experience in being a landlord to you. In case: • you are naive enough to contemplate buying rental property, you’ll want to raise the rent you are currently charging to compensate for the inevitable damage, destruction or loss you will almost certainly experience in your future as a landlord. • you actually believe your chances are good that most renters will actually care for your property. Bedroom left littered with used condoms My current renter agony: and sanitary napkins. I provided a seemingly nice young couple with a very, very nice, well-furnished, two-storey rural home. It is located on an acreage ten minutes directly north of Camrose, near Camrose Colony. The female in her early twenties came from a large family living close to Camrose. She had a history of working at a Camrose clothing store. The male, also in his early twenties, formerly of the Grande Prairie area, had experience working in the fabrication industry. The common-law couple seemed genuine and sincere. It took little time for me to learn both were dishonest, deceitful liars. Neither proved to be ambitious. No work equalled no rent. I was forced to have them removed from my property. When I was finally successful in getting them out of my rental property, the end result was not pleasant. Used condoms littered the floor; used sanitary napkins were on top Living room scene indicative of the way of the furniture. Mess everywhere! A mess so disgusting I had to have professional cleaners come in and deal with the situation. More these renters lived and left. expense! It’s my opinion that these people are disgraceful human beings. I suspect they are already renting from another unsuspecting landlord or perhaps they are currently staying with friends or family and still looking for their next landlord victim. The police could not help me in this situation. Renters in Alberta have the odds very much stacked in their favour. I strongly urge you to take every precaution with ALL RENTERS and RENTER PROSPECTS. Charge the maximum amount for a damage deposit. Don’t rent your property out to anyone you do not know very well! Check, double check and triple check every renter’s story. If in doubt, don’t rent out – it’s far cheaper to leave a rental property empty. Trust me as your voice of experience. Karl Steil, Camrose

Teams being decided for Boston Pizza Cup By Murray Green

Kevin Martin was the first curling rink to qualify for the 2012 Alberta men’s curling championship in Camrose by winning provincials last year. Three more rinks were given the go-ahead to plan on curling in Camrose in February. Canadian Team Ranking System berth winner Kevin Koe and Alberta Tour qualifiers Brock Virtue and Jamie King pre-qualified for the men’s curling provincials held in the EnCana Arena on Feb. 8 to 12. That means the Randy Ferbey rink will have to qualify the old-fashioned way. They will have to earn a b erth in playdowns. If the name Jamie King is familiar to local residents, it is because he lived here for three years and changed sports in Camrose. "I played hockey here, although not very well," recalled Jamie. "My hockey career with the bantam Duff Layton Men’s Wear Hustlers, resulted in dad (Craig) walking me across the recreation centre from the hockey rink to the curling rink. One day in January my dad, who was a c urler, i ntroduced me to curling. I h aven't played a hockey game since. My first rocks ever thrown were at the Rose City Curling Club when I was 13 years old, so t he club certainly has a special place in my heart. It was a go od career choice, because the NHL wasn't calling my name." Jamie lived in Camrose from 1985 to '87. His dad was the branch manager with TD Bank. He went to Jack Stuart School in Grades 7 a nd 8 a nd then to the Camrose Composite High School for Grade 9. As an avid golfer, he spent a y ear working at the Camrose Golf Course pro-shop shining shoes for Bill Goldsworthy in his first full-time job. His Camrose connection could turn into a h ome crowd backing for his rink. "I still have a few contacts here so hopefully a few people come out. Edmonton is not that far away, so I will have family and friends coming. Kevin (Martin) has more

connections to Camrose," said Jamie. His rink has had a success-

ful Alberta tour and his point total was good enough to earn a berth into the men's champion-

ships. "We had three really good bonspiels, which earned us points. We won the Medicine Hat and Red Deer bonspiels and made it to the playoffs in Wainwright," explained Jamie. "The down side is that we have a bit of a break, but northerns are so t ough that if you have a bad break you could be out. It is a h uge weight off of our shoulders knowing we have already qualified." The rink will turn to more practices, rather than enter a lot of bonspiels to prepare for provincials. "We might arrange some games with the Brock Virtue rink, we have talked to him about that, and Cheryl Bernard's team because they have a bye to their provincials." Kevin Koe's rink qualified based on Canadian points. "It is based on points accumulated from September to December. The better the opposition, the more points you can acquire," said Jamie. "The Alberta team with the most points in Canadian bonspiels qualifies and that is how Kevin Koe qualified. Randy Ferbey's rink was closer to quali-

fying in that system than on the Alberta Tour. The reasoning for doing that is so teams that enter more bonspiels than tour games, can also qualify." Koe’s 2010 world championship team added Pat Simmons, who skipped Saskatchewan in four consecutive Briers (200508) to give a contender this season. King has been at the Alberta men’s championship before and made it to the final. Calgary's Virtue also qualified and has three players who were on the 2007 world junior championship rink. The remaining eight teams in a 12-team field will be determined when the playdowns season wraps up in late January. The last men's provincials held in Camrose were held in 1986 when the Ed Lukowich team defeated the Pat Ryan rink (with Ferbey at third). Lukowich went on to win the Brier. Jamie made it to two provincial finals, 2003 and 2005 losing to Ferbey both times. He was the fifth player and coach for Koe at the 2009 trials and then worked with that team through to the 2010 Brier and world championships. Between men’s, mixed and juniors, he has been to 10 provincials. Jamie's rink qualified for the 2002 provincials by winning the C ev ent at northerns, which was held at the Rose City Curling Club. "I w as here last year to watch the ladies and the curlers I talked to raved about the ice conditions,. The seating is fab ulous and there is not a bad seat in the house." added Jamie. "We are certainly looking forward to coming to Camrose. "It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Mr. (Bob) Seney. I t hink the last time was when he was laying a five-ender on me at the 2003 provincials at the Granite. We were up 4-0 at the time, so it shook us up," said Jamie. "Anyway, I have to remind him that we eventually won that game." Two of my guys are in Calgary and one is in Lloydminster. Jamie King is a sa les manager with TD Commercial Banking in Edmonton.

Women's Vikings sit even heading into Christmas break By Murray Green

The women's Augustana Vikings' basketball team is within grasp of a p layoff spot in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. At the first half break, the team is 5 -5 and is l ooking to hit the court running in January. "We are not in a bad position. It just means most of the teams are even and everyone is pretty close right now. We just need to be better than .500 in the second half," said player Jessi Tomiyama. "It's pretty exciting for me. This is my third year here and it is t he best place we have been in at the break, so that is exciting," added Monique Jarrett, the third leading scorer on the Vikings. "We also know

that we could have been better, maybe even 8-2. We lost some close games we shouldn't have. We have to get in gear and play a little better in the second semester." The key to improvement will be on defence. "It took awhile for us to get going defensively. The last few games we were better and it will be a matter of keeping that up in the second half," said Jessi. "Making sure we have pressure on defence will be our biggest issue." Another factor will be starting strong. "We have to be ready to play every single game. Having a fast start to a game is so important for us," added Jessi. "Because the league is so close, we can't afford to have an

off game," said Monique. "Our best half is the first, we have to maintain that level of play for the whole game." Jessi said that "We play our best when everyone is contributing and the scoring is spread around. In order for us to win, everybody has to contribute and that is a good thing for us. Everyone plays better when they are involved." The team has a d ifferent make-up than last season. "This year, we need everyone to help out and spread out the scoring. Last year, we concentrated on just a f ew players doing the scoring," said Monique. "It is good to spread it out. That is when we are at our best." With the teams being so

close in the standings, each game is magnified in its importance. "Every team we play, is the team to beat and we just can't take a n ight off," added Monique. "It has been frustrating winning one game by 30 points and then losing the next one," said Jessi. "It means we have to come out and play well every single game. We can't afford to sit back at all." Although the team is having some relaxed practices during exam time, it is h ard for them to focus on studying. "We are going to Cuba for a f ew games before the second half and do some training there," said Jessi. "We are so ex cited to go to Cuba," added Monique, trying to contain her enthusiasm.

"We are there from Jan. 1 t o 9 and it is a s port and cultural exchange. We not only play some games, but we get an opportunity to learn their culture by going to the cities and market places, so we are all really excited." Jessi added that "It will be a good bonding experience as they prepare for the second half." The added games will give the team a ch ance to work on defence and improving t he percentage of free throws they make. The regular season next home games for the Vikings are on Jan. 13 and 14 when Medicine Hat and Briercrest provide the opposition. The women's games begin at 6 p.m. and the men start at 8 p.m.

Men's Vikings basketball team wins three in a row By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings were riding a t hree game winning streak in league play prior to heading to Montana for some exhibition contests. "Anytime you go to the United States you expect a h igher level of basketball. We faced some very good teams and they showed us we have a ways to go as far as improving," said Vikings' veteran David Chytracek. "Great Falls seemed like they had a 2 0-man roster that they rotated through

and we just got off from a 20-hour bus ride, so it was tough." They also went into a hard gym to win in at Havre. "That was the most hostile crowd I have had to play in," said David. "They are very passionate about their basketball and community." "Their mentality is kill or be killed. We have to take some of that approach into our games and play with more energy and confidence. We want to adapt a play they used and bring it into our game." The Vikings are taking the

positives from the trip with them. "They really had the basics down and it was a good learning experience to see that," added Shayn Bruney, the leading scorer on the Vikings. "They just did all of the little things right and we need to do that too." Augustana has to fine-tune their game now. "We just have to continue on some of the good things that we started doing in the last three games," said Shayn. "One thing we need to do, is win some home games," said David. "We only have four road

games in the second half, so winning at home is going to be so important. We want to get a 'W' for our home fans at least a handful of times." Coach Dave Drabiuk said the atmosphere at home is great to play in, but they have to find the right balance and not play too tight in the second half. "Sometimes we want to win at home too much, it affects our game." High school tourney

The university will be holding its annual high school bas-

ketball tournament from Dec. 28 to 30. "We are not playing in it, but some of the players will be helping with coaching and running the tournament," said coach Dave. "We will be having skills clinics in the morning and having games in the afternoon." The Vikings will be looking at future players, but that is not the main reason for holding the high school tournament. Continued on page 33

FOOT PROBLEMS? I can help!

Plantars Fasciitis Do you wake up in the morning and find that the first few steps you take are extremely painful on the bottom of your feet? Also marked by burning sensation in the base of the foot throughout the day, Plantars Fasciitis is one of our most limiting types of foot pain. Cause: Dropping of the foot arch causes pressure on the Plantar Fascial ligament on the base of the foot. The bone structures start to press in an abnormal fashion on the ligament causing the ligament to tear, either from the heel bone or the metatarsal joint heads. Prognosis: If it goes untreated for a long period of time, Plantars Fasciitis can become more painful when the body tries to protect itself by placing calcium deposits in the ligament tissue to repair the tears, causing you to have heel spurs. Treatment: Plantars Fasciitis can be treated successfully with the use of a properly fitted orthotic to support the heel and base of the foot. Very often icing and stretching exercises will be prescribed as well. If properly treated the symptoms and pain of Plantars Fasciitis should be gone in a few days. The tears take six to ten weeks to begin to heal, then the rest is up to your body, footwear, and diligence of caring for your feet. You are welcome to a free foot assessment at Total Orthotics to help you to determine the best course of action for your foot health.

Changes to the Land Assembly Act may give more power to landowners The Alberta government is taking the first step to fulfill Premier Alison Redford’s commitment to address concerns about property rights with amendments to the Land Assembly Project Area Act. The changes will be introduced by Jeff Johnson, the new Minister of Infrastructure, based on what has been heard from rural Albertans in recent months. “This is ab out giving more power to landowners,” Johnson

said. “Property owners deserve nothing less, and they expect nothing less from their government.” As it currently stands, the law lays out a p rocess for property owners when the government needs to buy land for largescale, long-term transportation or water projects (like the Edmonton or Calgary ring roads). “We need to make sure this law gives property owners as many choices and options as possible,” Johnson emphasized. “If

someone’s land is needed for a major infrastructure project, they should have all the protections of the Expropriation Act available to them in order to receive full compensation for their land at a time of their choosing. That’s what our changes will do.” The Land Assembly Project Area Act was introduced in the Legislature as Bill 19 in 2009. Premier Redford gave Johnson the mandate to review the legislation to address concerns about property rights.

Kodiaks continue winning streak, tame little horses By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks needed overtime to edge the Calgary Mustangs 3-2, Dec. 6. The bears will take the two points to continue their hot streak. Newcomer Joel Johnson and Tanner Tyndall notched two goals in the first period until the frisky Mustangs got on track in the second. Calgary tied it up in the third to force overtime. Defenceman Jonathan Lashyn scored the winner in overtime. Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 28 of 30 shots to record the win. "It feels good to put together a winning streak after struggling for a bit. Our work ethic and passing are gelling and everything is coming together and you can see that with the win streak," said Landon Kadatz. "It was a chippy game (against Calgary) and we thought the game was over too quick. Then they scored and we learned that we have to play a full 60 minutes or more." The Kodiaks soundly defeated the St. A lbert Steel 6-1, with six different players garnering tallies on Dec. 3. Netting single markers were Kadatz, Ty Clay, Sam Jardine, Connor Mailey, Nolan Marshall and Adam deChamplain. "The attitude has changed in the dressing room and it has been more positive," added Landon. "Everyone has more confidence now and it has brought our team to a whole new level." Camrose opened the scoring in the first on a Kadatz tally. The Kodiaks added three more in the second from Ty Clay, Sam Jardine and Connor Mailey. The Steel responded with a goal on a power play, but Camrose dashed any hopes of a c omeback

saves for the victory. Camrose faced 38 shots at the St. A lbert goal, including 17 in the middle

frame. Steel goalie Rhys Hadfield was the star of the game despite allowing six goals.

The bears want to gather wins now before going into a three-week hibernation over the holiday season. "We want to play well and have a good streak going into the break. We want to finish hard and then take time to heal our wounds and get healthy for the second half," said Landon. "It is good to have breaks, but we have to be ready to refocus and play right away. It is good to recharge the energy and heal the body, but we have to come back that much harder for the next game." The Camrose Kodiaks defeated the Bonnyville Pontiacs in a shoot-out, winning 2-1 on Dec. 2. The lone goal scorer in regulation for the Kodiaks was Tanner Marshall. In a goaltenders' duel, Hopfe won the battle in the shoot-out. Both Jonathan Lashyn and Connor Mailey had shoot-out goals in the contest. The Camrose Kodiaks traded for the playing rights of Joel Johnson to add some depth to the roster. Johnson comes to Camrose after playing with the Spruce Grove Saints. Landon has been playing well this month. "I just listen to the coaches and keep my feet moving," laughed Landon, on his play of late. "I have to use my speed to my advantage because when I do, it creates opportunities for me. It helps my line mates and it makes us difficult to play against. We just have to play our game." Camrose faces the Drayton Valley Thunder on Dec. 11 for a 2 p .m. start and the Okotoks Oilers on Dec. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in their next home games. After a game in Drumheller on Dec. 17, the Kodiaks have almost three weeks off.

Camrose was an easy choice to host World Junior exhibition game By Murray Green

Camrose's history of staging world class events landed them an exhibition game for the upcoming 2012 World Junior Championship. This year the event will be spread across the province. "The bid to host the World Juniors was submitted back i n 2008," said Al Coates, Hockey Canada executive director. "It was a joint effort between Northlands and the Edmonton Oilers, and the Calgary Flames. I f ind it interesting that there is no love lost between those two cities, but the power of the two organizations came together to win the bid. "If they didn't, quite frankly, it could have gone elsewhere. There was a p hrase in the bid that said: Alberta United. This jumped out at me, and some other people, and we used it as our theme until we adopted 'I Was There.' This was clearly our intention to make this a p rovincial endeavour. We wanted to touch as many sites and people as we possibly could." A game between the United States and Switzerland will be held on December 21, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Edgeworth Centre. "Having games in places like Camrose is i mportant because it gives more people the opportunity to see the future stars," said Al. "I should have my math better, but I believe about 65 per cent of the players in the National Hockey League have played in this tournament at one time."

World Junior Championship executive director Al Coates and Camrose Kodiaks' assisant manager Darcy Steen unveiled the banner to celebrate the game between USA and Switzerland on Dec. 21.

Season ticket holders of the Camrose Kodiaks had the first opportunity to purchase tickets for the international hockey game. Tickets cost $25 per seat. "I give Hockey Canada credit for selecting Camrose. We don't like to leave things to chance in terms of our success ratio," Al explained. "I want to make sure the frenzy continues and we are putting these games in places where we think they will sell out. Because of the nature of the community and the passion for hockey, we feel we can sell out in Camrose." Team USA wanted to return

to Camrose. "First, we looked at who wanted to host a team. Camrose stepped up and said we will take one," explained Al. "We wanted a t eam from Pool A to be in Camrose because of the proximity to Rexall Place, 45 minutes. The officials from USA Hockey have been to Camrose before and are familiar with the facility. People like to feel comfortable and they know what is available in Camrose." With more than 1,100 seats already sold, Camrose Kodiaks assistant manager Darcy Steen expects a se llout. "Tickets are going very quickly and we sold

a lot of tickets today (Dec. 2). To have this calibre of hockey in our backyard is great. It is a very special event." The 2012 World Junior Championship is being held in December and January in Edmonton and Calgary. The championship features the best under 20-year-old menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey players in the world competing in a 1 0- day event. The event has the 10 top countries in junior hockey, which includes Canada, Russia, Switzerland, Latvia, Slovakia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark and the United States.

Team USA has eight returning players and is gunning for the gold medals again this year. But what chance does Team Switzerland have in the tournament? "The number one draft choice of the Flames is on Switzerland (Sven Bärtschi) and he almost made the team coming out of training camp. You look around the NHL, there are more Swiss-born players every year. I thought the Swiss team in Buffalo was well prepared. They have come leaps and bounds over the last couple of years," said Al. Al wondered whether the USA or Russia is t he biggest opponent for the Canadians. "They will be determining who will play on the first line or who is on the power play. This will be in the final stages of the teams' selection process. T hose decisions are vital." Al recalled the story about Corey Perry. "He is t he reigning MVP of the NHL and he only made Team Canada as the 13th forward. Someone got hurt and he moved up three lines (to play with Jeff Carter and Ryan Getzlaf) and they say the rest is history. He came close to not even making the team. There will be similar stories for the players on the USA team." The USA team will be using Camrose as its home base from Dec. 17 to 24. Tickets can be purchased by phoning the Kodiaks' office at 780-679-2603, or during the Kodiaks' home games in the Edgeworth Centre.

BRSD balances budget Diane Hutchinson, Communications Coordinator, Battle River School Division

For the first time in nearly a decade, Battle River School Division is f orecasting a d eficit-free operating budget. But the Board and Superintendent of Schools are clear that the positive budget news has come as a result of significant changes and reductions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleased to be able to have a balanced budget,â&#x20AC;? says Board Chair Cheryl Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every department, school and worksite has made changes in order to reach this milestone and I truly believe that it will serve us well in the years ahead. For the first time in years Battle River School Division is living within its means.â&#x20AC;? In the last 15 years, the local school division has experienced a steady decline in student numbers, as the number of students starting Grade 1 has been consistently lower than the number of students finishing Grade 12. For much of that time, BRSD relied on reserve dollars to offset the funding reductions that declining enrollment caused and avoided making big changes in staffing or service levels. Now, the reserves have been depleted, but the trend of lower student numbers continues. According to Dr. Larry Payne, Superintendent of Schools, the school division â&#x20AC;&#x153;no longer has the luxuryâ&#x20AC;? of drawing from reserves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We reached a p oint where our reserves could not sustain our spending. We have had no choice but to make changes.â&#x20AC;? Last spring, the school division began preparing for the current school year by evaluating all aspects of the organization. Difficult decisions were made in

all areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; d ivision office positions were reduced or eliminated; bus routes were redesigned; bus drivers and transportation staff were reduced; maintenance shops were consolidated; operations staff were reduced; school staff, including administrative assistants, educational assistants and librarians had their hours adjusted or their positions eliminated; and the number of teachers also went down. Dr. Payne says the impact of those decisions is n ow being felt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no doubt that every school is n oticing the impact of these changes. In addition, the transportation and maintenance aspects of our organization have taken a la rge portion of these financial changes. As we tried to find ways to soften the impact on our classrooms, those two departments were asked to give up more than their fair share.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Payne points to such changes as consolidating classroom spaces and closing off rooms in schools; charging facility usage fees for community groups to use schools; and the fact that spare buses are no longer kept at schools for field trip access as part of the impact of budgetary tightening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is t he hardest year,â&#x20AC;? he acknowledges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got our spending to a level that matches our funding, future changes will be more manageable. We know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not out of the woods yet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the projections are for enrollments to continue to go d own for another year or two before the student numbers level off. Of course, we also canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t predict what future funding or collective agreements will look like. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a much better position now to deal with whatever may come.â&#x20AC;?

"We want to invite teams to campus for possible recruiting, but the main focus is to give something back t o the sport and help high school players make the transition to the college level," said the Vikings' coach. "It is a go od opportunity to do that and we don't want to lose that. Our goal is to add college-level games in the future." A team from Yukon will be playing. However, it won't be a school team. "They will be bringing the team that is preparing for the Arctic Games in March, so we

expect a go od team. We want to help Yukon Basketball by offering them a go od tournament to play in." Augustana is currently finalizing the teams for the tournament. "Unfortunately, the high school is go ing to Hawaii, so they won't be in it. We are waiting to hear back from Wetaskiwin." The next home games for the Vikings are on Jan. 13 and 14 when Medicine Hat and Briercrest provide the opposition. The women's games begin at 6 p .m. and the men start at 8 p.m.

Council agrees to partnership with Community Futures By Dan Jensen

When Ray Telford was hired as new economic development coordinator this past September one of the questions he was asked was "What is the City of Camrose going to do with the Credco building?" It appears he finally has an answer. Camrose City council has authorized the mayor and city manager to enter a pa rtnership agreement with East Central Alberta Community Futures that will see the building be used as a Rural Alberta Business Centre. The centre will be managed by East Central Alberta Community Futures using a y early grant of $75,000 over the next three years from the provincial government. The City of Camrose will provide $12,000 for building renovations from either the Credco budget or the general capital reserve fund. The idea of establishing a

Rural Alberta Business Centre in Camrose as a pilot project was presented to the City of Camrose by the government this past October. "After research and consideration our department realized this program would work very well with Community Futures as an additional partner," said Telford in a re port presented to council Nov. 28. The centre will provide onestop access to information and services that support the development, growth and success of small businesses within nonurban communities in Alberta. "The goal of the RABC pilot program is to provide direct information and support services to small businesses in rural communities in a c ost effective and responsive manner," said Telford. "The client group to be served would be business owners and managers at all stages of the business life cycle, from the idea and start-up stage through to the expansion phase and including

succession planning. Emphasis will be placed on providing information and support to businesses in the growth phase." As well as hiring the manager, East Central Alberta Community Futures will collaborate with the City of Camrose to establish local goals and objectives that will meet government funding criteria. It will also provide video conferencing equipment that can be used to offer workshops and seminars through Alberta Business Link to local businesses. "Right now the use of it (video conferencing equipment) in Viking is not great," said East Central Alberta Community Futures general manager Darlene Curtis. "Nobody is go ing to drive from Camrose or Killam or Forestburg for a se ssion over lunch." Curtis said Rural Alberta Business Centre program can turn the Credco building into the incubator the City wants it to be. She added the money the government provides for the

province, East Central Alberta Community Futures and the City of Camrose all end up as winners. "I certainly will cast my vote for something I think is good for the present, good for the future, and good for the City of Camrose. "Hopefully it will be good for the businesses that will remain here, but if they choose to locate somewhere else we at least will have had a pa rt in that and we will have put our facilities to good use." Telford said the RABC program will be a benefit to the economic development of the City. "This will provide resources for business growth, retention and expansion of our business community. The City of Camrose will also promote the Credco building as location for start-up or newly established small or homebased businesses and encourage those businesses to expand and relocate to other areas of the City."

RABC could go beyond three years. "No one knows right now how it is going to work out but the Credco building is an awesome space. It just needs some updating before we can put someone in there." The RABC must be up and running by January 15, which gives the City of Camrose a little bit of time to complete repairs that are required. The provincial government, in addition to the $75,000 per year for three years, will provide $10,000 in one-time funding to assist with the cost of computers and office supplies. Councillor Brandon Blatz said it is nice to see the Credco building finally being put to good use. "I think (the Rural Alberta Business Centre) is an excellent initiative. It will be a great asset for the City in terms of retention and development of business on an ongoing basis." Councillor John Howard said the proposal is one in which the

Schools delivery moves ahead

The Alberta government has shortlisted the top three proponents to design, finance, build and maintain 13 new schools through a public-private partnership (P3). These 13 new schools are part of government’s $550 million investment to build or modernize 35 Alberta schools. “The response to our call for qualifications, all from highly accomplished teams, reinforces that Alberta’s P3 school delivery model is well-respected throughout the industry,” said Jeff Johnson, Minister of Infrastructure. “This supports the fact that using P3s to deliver much needed, quality schools to Alberta’s growing communities continues to be a valid option.” A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the 13 new P3 schools, issued in October, resulted in five submissions. Following an extensive evaluation, three teams have been invited to participate in the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage. The teams are: ABC Schools Group; Alberta Consortium for Education (ACE); Build to Learn3 (B2L3). “Government is committed to ensuring that schools are being built for families and students in Alberta’s fastest growing communities,” said Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk. The successful P3 proponent is expected to be named in September 2012. They will be responsible for partial financing, design, and construction of the facility. Once the schools are completed, the successful proponent will maintain the schools for 30 years. Ownership of the schools remains with the school boards. These 13 P3 schools are part of an investment that will result in 22 new or replacement schools and 13 modernized schools ready for Alberta students by the 201415 school year. The school projects will be completed using a combined procurement approach, which includes design-build bundles, design-bid-build projects, and this P3 bundle.

ROYAL LEPAGE STAFF SUPPORT SILENT SANTA PROGRAM

The staff at Royal LePage Rose Country Realty Ltd. donated $3,400 and several toys to the Camrose Kinettes Silent Santa program. Kinettes treasurer Holly McLennan accepted the gifts from realtors, from left to right, Heather Ryan, Don Forestier, Tracy Brandingen, Carman Mason, Tom Calhoun, owner Arnoud Colombijn, Russ Nielson, Jennifer Flint, Leona Calhoun, Natasha Niehaus and Kathy Niven. The funds will help purchase shortfalls in gifts, such as items for teenagers.

Boomtown Trail has experienced busy year By Dan Jensen

It has been a b usy year for the Boomtown Trail. "We have several programs underway," explained Boomtown Trail organization executive director Ken Duncan in a presentation to Camrose City council Dec. 5. Natural Places

Boomtown Trail is currently developing a comprehensive system of natural places that visitors can experience, enjoy, value and preserve. "We have started doing an inventory of all the natural places in the Boomtown region and so far we have come up with over 160 of them," said Duncan. "We have inventoried them, attended them all, photographed them and compiled a database." Five of the favourite natural places are Alix Nature Trail, Bashaw Centennial Nature Trail, Camrose County Nature Centre, Hike the Coulee (in Willow Canyon), and Horsethief Canyon Lookout. Boomtown Trail is also developing a f ew historical figures who are able to blur the distinction between past and present by immersing audiences in another time.

"The first-person presentation style is a w ay to share the character's story and reveal the character's essential subjective nature, as well as his or her hopes, fears, prejudices and perspectives," states the Boomtown website. "Through countless hours of solid research, the character is able to provide a connection to the history of Boomtown's past that is personal and immediate." "We have this theory that every community has a colourful five per cent and we are bringing them back to life," explained Duncan. Metis leader Gabriel Dumont, Mrs. Eugene Bashaw and pioneer Mary Alice Presant were three of the eight Boom Town Trail characters who entertained rural MLAs with stories over lunch last May. Boomtown Trail's new GeoRoamer app for iPhone and iPad automatically triggers audio files which play on the car's stereo system when passing certain points identified on a map. "They welcome you to Camrose (or other communities) and give you a little bit of information about the community, a little bit

of history, and invite you downtown," said Duncan. Big changes

Duncan said that the new tourism regions the provincial government is looking at developing could greatly affect Boomtown Trail. "The Boomtown trail shares area with the Badlands so part of our initiative will fall within the Badlands and the other part probably within a n ew tourism organization. We have no idea how big that is, what it will look like or the parameters around it." A new initiative that could draw thousands of more tourists to the area is being worked on by Beaver Hills. "They are looking at going after international biosphere status for the area from Elk Island down to Miquelon Lake, which is in our area," said Duncan. "This could open up huge opportunities for tourism. They are anticipating visitors in excess of 600,000 a year, which would put them ahead of Drumheller. It ties in nicely with our natural places initiative, and that inventory. We are foreseeing a g reen corridor running the length of Boomtown Trail and as cities expand and

grow the people who are living in them are looking more and more at getting out of them and getting in touch with nature." Duncan said one of the challenges of Boomtown Trail is to get more visitors into the centre of the region, including Bashaw and Delburne. "We have to work on giving the tourists more reason to visit that area." Duncan has compiled statistics showing that the annual spending on tourism in the Boomtown trail area is roughly $174 million. "This is b ig business," he said. "If you use the multiplier effect of seven then we are into a value in excess of a billion dollars a year, so it is not something to be taken lightly." The Boomtown Trail is located north to south between Highway 14 to Highway 1, and east to west between Highways 21, 56 and 9 and the adjacent area. "We are an economic development organization with a focus on tourism," said Duncan. "Our vision is to be Alberta's entertainment corridor based on our history, culture and environment."

Chev Orlando Standing out from the crowd

Pete Pastuck McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet By Dan Jensen

The all-new Chevrolet Orlando has arrived at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC. Part MPV and part crossover, Orlando is a vehicle that stands out from the crowd. "Orlando demonstrates how innovative design can transform the once ordinary confines of the family vehicle to create a totally different experience for driver and passengers alike," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC managing partner Will McClellan. "It's remarkably compact for a v ehicle that can transport up to seven people in comfort." Orlando brings flare to the MPV segment by adopting a bolder look with its low roofline and crossover inspired silhouette, while retaining the distinctive and recognizable Chevrolet front grille. The wheel arches, housing 16- or 18-inch wheels, enhance a body-in, wheel-out appearance while at the same time ensuring Orlando keeps its agile, sporting stance. Interior versatility While the exterior of the new Chevrolet Orlando is sure to attract plenty of attention, the interior also features many of the latest design cures from Chevrolet, such as the Corvette-inspired dual cockpit and ambient blue backlighting to the centre console. The interior has three rows of "theatre style" seating, and despite the sweeping roof-line, designers have succeeded in raising the second and third rows to allow the Orlando's occupants to get an even view both forwards and to the side without compromising headroom. In fact, headroom in the third row seats in the Orlando is superior to a number of competitor MPVs. Numerous seating configurations are possible with either second or third rows folded independently or together to make a completely flat load area. The second row also has a tumble-fold feature for both the left and right-hand outer seats to allow easy access for passengers into and out of the third row. When the

time comes to hauling large loads of cargo, Orlando's cargo area is one of the most voluminous in the segment, with 1,594 litres available when both rows of seats are folded behind the first row. Like the original concept car, the Orlando obliges with a range of compartments of different shapes and sizes and different locations, including two large cup holders in the centre console, map and bottle holders integrated into the front and rear doors, and a number of individual compartments in the cargo area. The most ingenious is a s torage area hidden behind the front fascia of the audio system, within easy reach of both the driver and passenger. Orlando designers were able to integrate a usefully large area which is revealed by flipping up the face of the audio system, large enough for such items as an MP3 player, sunglasses and wallets. Within the space itself is a standard auxiliary jack and optional USB port for MP3 or iPod connectivity, depending on the trim level. Performance Orlando's award-winning 2.4 litre Ecotec fourcylinder engine is also impressively fuel efficient – in fact, it has an expected best fuel efficiency of any nonhybrid seven-seater on the market. A pair of six-speed transmissions – a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic – match the standard 2.4 litre Ecotec direct injected I-4 engine, rated at 174 horsepower. The sixspeed manual transmission delivers 6.7 litres per 100 km on the highway and 10.1 litres per 100 km in the city, while the six-speed automatic delivers 6.9 litres per 100 km on the highway and 10.6 litres per 100 km in the city. Shifts within the automatic transmission are accomplished by applying and disengaging clutches simultaneously, which provides a m ore direct feel for the driver, compared to the "freewheeling" gear change mechanisms. On the road, a wide selection of shift patterns is adapted to the styles and habits of the driver, anticipating when maximum acceleration

or maximum efficiency is re quired. The electronic control also adapts to the prevailing wind conditions, including gear shifting when climbing or descending and using engine braking assistance during down changes. Ride Orlando's chassis has been tuned to provide the ideal compromise between ride comfort and agility. McPherson struts, used for front suspension, use hydraulic bushings which are often found in more expensive vehicles, and provide increased ride isolation for passengers and controlled absorption of variable road surfaces. The advanced compound crank (torsion beam) system at the rear is used as it offers the perfect compromise between suspension control combined with savings in weight and space. Safety and security Orlando's chassis and body structure have also been engineered with high reserves of safety as a key consideration. Sixteen-inch ventilated front disc brakes are fitted across the range, with sixteeninch solid discs at the rear and with electronic ABS acting on all wheels. All chassis also benefit from electronic brake force distribution, a system which governs the amount of braking at each w heel to ensure the shortest stopping distances, traction control for when road conditions are wet or slippery, electronic stability control and hydraulic brake assist. Orlando provides a c omprehensive list of safety and security features, including: panic brake assist and cornering brake control, StabiliTrak, traction control, six standard airbags, head restraints for all seating positions, pedal release system, power rear child security door locks, child-view mirror, standard OnStar with six months of Directions and Connections service, and Euro NCAP five star rating (one of the top scoring cars in Europe for 2011).

Eye cancer patients to receive care in Alberta A new treatment for patients with a rare form of eye cancer means they no longer need to leave Alberta for care, or risk losing an eye unnecessarily. Melanoma that occurs inside the eye, known as uveal melanoma, occurs in only about six cases per million people, or about 22 cases a year in Alberta. Left untreated, the cancer typically spreads to the liver. Once this happens, there are no treatment options. Alberta Health Services (AHS) ophthalmologist Dr. Ezekiel Weis, who specializes in cancers of the eye, has started treating patients at the Cross Cancer Institute using a technique called ocular brachytherapy. An implant containing tiny radioactive “seeds” is surgically placed on the wall of the eye for about seven days to destroy the tumour, while minimizing damage to the rest of the eye. Cross Cancer Institute is the only facility in the Prairie provinces to offer this procedure. Since October, Dr. Weis has treated eight patients and expects to do 32 procedures per year, including patients from Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Before this was offered, patients would have to travel to Toronto or Philadelphia for treatment – or opt for the more drastic option of having the eye surgically removed. “This treatment is go ing to significantly improve the quality of life for those who need it. Patients will receive the best care, close to their families and support networks,” says Dr. Weis. “Until now, about half of all Alberta patients with uveal melanoma were having their eyes removed, including some who qualified for the radiation treatment, because they did not want to face the stress and logistical hardship of travelling so far away.” Most centres that offer ocular brachytherapy only remove the eye in about a t hird of patients, and good vision is retained in over 60 per cent of cases treated with radiation. Survival outcomes for patients undergoing ocular brachy-

Caroline Balcerzak, 29, was one of the first patients to undergo the procedure in Edmonton after her sight became distorted and cloudy. The Calgary woman had her first appointment in Toronto but wanted to have the surgery and her recovery closer to her family, including her two children, ages ten and eight. She is n ow recovering and has retained her vision. “I am so thankful Dr. Weis was able to start this treatment in time and spare me the emotional and financial burden of being so far away,” says Balcerzak. “I may eventually lose my vision, but I have my life, and I’m so thankful for that.” The Alberta Cancer Foundation and its donors provided $235,000 for the equipment and operational costs for the first year.

“The Alberta Cancer Foundation is pleased to have provided founding support for this project, which has now successfully demonstrated its impact and effectiveness,” says Alberta Cancer Foundation CEO Myka Osinchuk. “Now that it is successfully launched, it will be sustained by our Alberta Health Services partner and offer a continuing higher standard of care here in Alberta.” Ongoing operational costs are expected to be around $110,000 per year. “With this treatment we are providing high-quality, accessible health care to more of our patients,” AHS Board Chair Ken Hughes says. “Not only are patients and their families better off but this will create a centre of excellence right here in Alberta, ensuring patients for years to come will benefit from the knowledge and expertise we are amassing.”

ATB Financial employees support Food for Kids By Murray Green

Camrose artists Donna Werner and Lorraine Williams reconstructed part of Main Street (Fiona's Coffee House and Twig) using gingerbread and assorted supplies to enter in the Festival of Trees. After the festival, the ladies put their creation on display at Fiona's to spark some coffee break conversation.

ATB Financial employees make sure children are ready to learn when the school bell rings at five local schools. The Camrose branch of ATB Financial staff collects food every week from local grocery stores, employees and customers to go t o the Camrose Neighbor Aid Center's Food for Kids Breakfast Clubs program. The schools are the Camrose Composite High, Charlie Killam, Chester Ronning, Sparling and Our Lady of Mount Pleasant. "We have been collecting food

for about three years. This is the first year we are delivering food for children on a w eekly basis," said Stacey Siminick of ATB Financial. "We want to be part of the community and whenever I put the call out for staff volunteers to help, I usually receive more than enough volunteers." The west end bank employees go to businesses that have extra food for children, pack them into their vehicles and transport them to the Food Bank. Continued on page 39

Then every Friday, they help deliver the food to the schools. "We know that children learn more after they have had breakfast," said Pat Hagen of the Neighbor Aid Center. "The Food for Kids Breakfast Clubs program is very important to us and the community."

The mission of the Breakfast Clubs is to ensure that the children of Camrose are well nourished. "More than 400 children are fed a n utritious breakfast every school day through the breakfast programs at the participating schools," added Pat. The program was launched in 2000.

Tinordi will compete for Team USA December 21 By Dan Jensen

The Montreal Canadiens will be keeping tabs on Jarred Tinordi in the World Junior Championship exhibition game between Team USA and Team Switzerland at the Edgeworth Centre Dec. 21. The six-foot-seven-inch defenceman and son of now retired Mark Tinordi, who played 12 seasons with the New York Rangers, Minnesota North Stars, Dallas Stars and Washington Capitals, was a f irst round draft pick of the Habs (twenty-second overall) in the 2010 NHL entry draft. While not flashy like some of

his teammates, Tinordi was able to record one goal and 13 assists in his 2010-11 rookie season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. The year previous, with the United States National Under-18 team which competed in the United States Hockey League and against Division I and Division III opponents, he had six goals and 11 assists. Tinordi was captain of the U.S. Men's National Under-18 team which captured the gold medal at the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation's World Men's U18 Championship in Minsk and Bobruisk, Belarus. In 2009 he competed in the

Under-18 Four nations Cup in Finland, and was member of the U.S. National Under-17 team at the 2009 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Port Alberni, B.C. His 2007-2008 season, one in which he received rookie of the year honours, was spent with the Washington Junior Nationals of the Atlantic Junior Hockey League. Tickets for the December 21 exhibition game between Team USA and Team Switzerland have been selling fast and furious. "We encourage hockey fans to get their tickets to this very special event as soon as possible, as they are selling very quickly," said Camrose Kodiaks' assistant

general manager Darcy Steen. "Tickets make a great Christmas gift and also make for a s pecial family outing right around the Christmas season." Team USA will be using Camrose as its home base from Saturday, Dec. 17, to Saturday, Dec. 24 before departing for Edmonton, where it will be playing all of its World Junior Championship round robin games. "Camrose is o ne of a se lect few cities and towns in Alberta that have the privilege of hosting a pre-competition camp and exhibition game for the World Junior Championship," said Steen. Tickets for the exhibition may be ordered on-line at www.

hockeycanada.ca/tickets, or by phone at 780-679-2603. Tickets may also be purchased at the Camrose Kodiaks' office in Edgeworth Centre between 12 noon and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship, which will be hosted by Edmonton and Calgary over a period of 10 days starting Boxing Day, will feature teams from the top ten countries in junior hockey: Canada, Russia, Switzerland, Latvia, Slovakia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark and the United States. The United States won the bronze medal in the 2011 championship and the gold in 2010.

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.

Watch out for invoice scamming The following is general information relating to the YellowPage-Canada.Com invoice scam. The targeted business receives an invoice asking them to renew their advertising in some form of "yellow pages" directory. Although some of these invoices are legitimate, others are scams designed to trick companies out of hundreds of dollars. Businesses must be aware of unscrupulous promoters soliciting advertising in non-existent local business directories. These directories may appear to be legitimate yellow pages publications, but are not distributed to the public and as a re sult, offer little or no benefit to businesses paying to advertise in them. In some cases, these directories are not published at all. In other instances, some type of directory is published, but again, the value and circulation of these publications is questionable. The invoices often feature the "walking fingers" logo of the familiar yellow pages, or a v ariation of the name. Businesses receiving these invoices must carefully examine them and not simply pay or “update” personal or business information. Genuine invoices generally include the full name and address of the publisher, and a telephone phone number for questions and/or customer service. An “official” web page is also not a guarantee of legitimacy.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER December 13, 2011

Hockey Vikings edged by SAIT By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings dropped a cl ose 3-2 to the SAIT Trojans to wrap up the first half of the hockey regular season. Both Augustana goals came from the defence with Ryan Cornforth netting the first Vikings marker and Harrison Tribble collecting his fourth of the year on a power play to give Augustana a late push in Calgary on Dec. 2. "SAIT has such a t ough rink to play in and I don't think we have won there," said Daniel Hope. "We dominated the game from a shot perspective and we really felt robbed of a game there. We took a lot of positives out of that game, maybe more than sometimes when you win. We know we can beat them and we can do it in their own barn." Teammate Dean Prpick echoed his comments. "We play them again in a home and home series and it is important to win the season series. It could help in the standings as well as prepare us for the playoffs." Vikings goalie Paul Kolida stopped 38 of 41 shots he faced. Former Daysland Minor Hockey player Matt Stefanishion garnered his 13th of the year for the Trojans. The top four teams in the conference are within a couple of points. "Every game is so important. We have to win every time out and hope one of the improving clubs, such as MacEwan, can knock off a good team," said Daniel. "It is like an extra two points for us when Mount Royal, NAIT or SAIT loses." The top two teams receive a bye in the first round of the playoffs. "It would be great to receive a bye because you have less games and you receive home advantage," said Dean. "It would allow us to heal if we have injuries or just give us a rest that is welcome at that time of year." Daniel said the home ice advantage is huge. "It is v ital in college hockey because the first two series are shorter, a b est of three and a best of five. You want to play in your rink and have the crowd behind you." The Vikings will be healthier in the second half with a handful of players coming back from injuries. "We have played without Torrie Dyck, our leading scorer last year, and Richard Dupree, our top face-off guy and penalty killer, and some other guys returning, so it will give us a lot more depth," added Dean. "When you add more players it creates competition for those spots. It makes us competitive and a little hungrier," said Daniel. The team is looking for a little more consistency in the second half. "We need some better starts to games," said Dean. "It seems our third period is o ur best one, which is good, but we need to be better earlier to avoid having to come back in games." The Vikings are hosting the NAIT Ooks on Jan. 11 in the next home game, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Camrose United Church recognizes members on 86th anniversary By Alex Oliver

On Sunday, November 13, Camrose United Church celebrated its 86th year in Camrose. The United Church of Canada came about in a u nion of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregational churches a nd it was November 15, 1925, when services were held for the first time in the basement of what is now the Camrose United Church. After Sunday’s 10:00 a.m. service, the congregation shared a huge pot-luck dinner in the Christian Education Hall. Cake and beverages were supplied. To enhance the anniversary, The ConneXions Committee which consists of Joyce Lohner, Joyce Steiger, Margaret Wallace and chairperson Buffy da Silva recognized members of Camrose United Church who have contributed much to the church. Buffy affirmed, “It’s important to honour the services these individuals make to our congregation.” This year’s honourees were Mary Pattie-Fellner, Jean Martens, and Bob and Doreen Walline. Mary Pattie-Fellner has been a member for over thirty years. She sings soprano in the choir and is a member of the Pastoral Care Committee. She gives up much of her free time visiting members of our congregation who are confined to the hospital and the Louise Jensen Long Term Care facility. Mary remarked, “I appreciate and thank everyone for the recognition.” Jean Martens has been a member of the Board of Trustees, the kitchen supervisory team, the knitting group, and the United Church Women (UCW). In addition, she works at the United Church’s annual pie event, the Sale-a-bration, and the Christmas Tea and Bake Sale. Doreen Walline is a v ery active life member and treasurer of the UCW; she sings in the choir and has worked in Sunday School. As well, she has been a Presbytery representative, member of the Official Board, member of the Pastoral Care Committee, and a helper at Martha’s Table. Bob Walline has worked hard on the Property Committee and has been conscientious in helping to keep the physical church up to modern standards. He has spent countless hours working on the landscaping and maintenance of the church grounds. He also assists at Sunday services by operating the PA system. ConneXions’ member Joyce Lohner pointed out, “This is a n important historical record of those who have served the church above and beyond the call of duty. These honourees are now mentors for our young people and new members to the congregation.”

Breakfast program makes children healthier, more alert Submitted by Colleen Lindholm, Camrose Primary Care Network

When people join forces, great things can be achieved. And with Christmas just around the corner, there is no better occasion to work together to give back to our community. The Camrose Primary Care Network and the Camrose Association For Community Living are teaming up to collect much needed items and donations for the Camrose Food Bank Breakfast Program for Kids. Each year both organizations ask their staff to give back to community rather than giving presents to their co-workers, ensuring Christmas is still celebrated but the entire community benefits. This year, the organization for which they are collecting items is the Camrose Food Bank

Breakfast Program for Kids who are in need of various items and grocery store gift cards to support their breakfast program for children in our community, feeding 300 to 400 children every day. Healthy eating has a g reat impact on health and well-being in children. Starting the day with a strong foundation of a healthy breakfast can offer essential nutrients and energy to fuel physical activity and learning. Children who eat breakfast are more likely to do well in school. Young people change amazingly between the ages of six and 18. During this time, as they're building the bone mass they will carry into adulthood, many school-aged children grow at astounding rates. Eating a h ealthy breakfast is essential to fuel this rapid growth and development.

The CAFCL and Camrose PCN are pleased to be working together in the spirit of bettering the health of the children in our community. “This is a n opportunity for our PCN team to share the Christmas spirit with our community. Le arnings from our clients within our Maternal Newborn Clinic and New Mom’s Network reinforce the importance of how positive eating habits children pick up when they are young help them maintain a healthy lifestyle when they are adults,” says Stacey Strilchuk, Executive Director Camrose PCN. “It is d eeply rewarding to

have another organization join us in giving back to our community. The camaraderie and partnering is great fun and together we are doing something grand for the children in our community,” states Esther McDonald, CEO, Camrose Association For Community Living. “We are so g rateful for the donations,” says Pat Hagen of Camrose Neighbour Aid Centre. Five schools in Camrose participate in the program, with about 350 children accessing the breakfasts daily. “Without the support of the community, there would be hungry children. And hungry children don’t learn. By supporting

the breakfast program, you are not only helping children to succeed in school, but providing a healthy start to their day,” adds Hagen. Both CAFCL and the PCN will collect all of their items by their reception desks and they invite members of the community to get involved by dropping off donations at their offices – CAFCL at 4604-57 Street and The PCN at the Edgeworth Centre. Both groups will meet at the Food Bank on Dec. 19 to drop off donations. For more information on this Christmas initiative, call either CAFCL at 780-672-0257 or the PCN at 780- 608-4927.

In 1967, he retired from the Air Force and went to work for Canada Post in Winnipeg, and then in Calgary. Upon retiring from Canada Post in 1974, he was finally able to make his dream of farming come true by purchasing what he would later name “The Wonder Farm” near Ohaton, Alberta, where he lived until moving to Camrose in 1997. Ernie was a l oving husband to his wife Marjorie, a wonderful father to his children, and a her o to his grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. He was strong in his faith, loved his family and always had time to sit and visit with anyone who stopped by to see him. His love, advice and witty sense of humor will be sorely missed. Ernest is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Marjorie; daughter Kathy (Reg) Henderson; son Dale (Jeanne) Peter; grandchildren Lindsay (Trevor), Travis (Amy), Shelbie, Kari, Andrea (Matt), Ashley, Robin, Karla and Bryce; his greatgrandchildren Caleb, Ethan, Lucas and Addison; as well as his brother and sisters and many nieces and nephews.

The Camrose Regional Exhibition will have its work cut out if it wants to better this year's Festival of Trees. "We're pleased with how it turned out," said CRE general manager Wynn McLean of the annual end of November event. "Our attendance was up this year by approximately twenty per cent." The CRE introduced a number of changes for the 2011 Festival, the most significant being the replacement of the gala dinner with an Unwrap the Magic reception Thursday night featuring signature drinks, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and live local entertainment. "It (the reception) was very well received," said McLean. The CRE was also able to increase the number of title sponsors. Central Agencies sponsored the Unwrap the Magic event, while Camrose Chrysler sponsored the Teddy Bear Disco Nov. 23. "The Teddy Bear Disco was an absolute runaway," said McLean. "The response was the biggest it has ever been, with more than 400 kids participating and having a blast." Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre was the title sponsor on Friday, Battle River Implements on Saturday and Evraz Camrose Works on Sunday. Along with being good for the CRE, the Festival of Trees was good for the Merry Christmas Cheer Fund, the Camrose Children's Choir, Camrose and District Food Bank, Battle River Community Foundation and Friends of the Festival of Trees, which will share proceeds totalling $10,000. Camrose Regional Exhibition took on the Festival of Trees as an in-house event in 2010. "We're very proud of the event because it is so fa mily oriented," said McLean. "It is not uncommon when you walk around the Festival to see grandmothers and grandfathers pushing their grandchildren in carriages." Camrose Regional Exhibition starts making preparations for the Festival of Trees in January. The success the event enjoys year after year is a t estament to the 100 per cent dedication and commitment of 100 per cent of the CRE staff and the significant contributions of community volunteers. "The set-up for the Festival is t he more complex set-up we do throughout the course of the year," said McLean. Community groups and organizations who are interested in assisting with the 2012 Festival of Trees are encouraged to contact CRE events coordinator Marilyn Lee at 780-672-3640.

Canada World Youth raises awareness of HIV and AIDS By Dan Jensen

Canada World Youth participants from South Africa and Canada distributed ribbons and questionnaires to students at the University of Alberta's Augustana Campus Dec. 1 with the goal of increasing awareness about HIV and AIDS. "I personally see a lack o f awareness, about what HIV and AIDS is, how people get affected and the impact this has on everyone," said Jim Madiba. "There may not be many cases of HIV and AIDS in Camrose but that doesn't mean the people who are living here are not affected by it." The survey results will be analyzed by CWY and a re port provided to the community. Personally affected

Madiba has two members of his family in South Africa who are affected by HIV and AIDS and knows of many who have died from the disease. "I know there are antiretroviral tablets that can keep the body's immune system high but in a lot of cases there is not enough education that goes with the medication, so p eople don't really know what it does. A lot of them don't know either that they are putting themselves at risk by having unprotected sex or visiting a prostitute." CWY project supervisor Owen Mdledle said it is high time that people around the world stand up with their governments to fight the root causes of HIV and AIDS, including poverty, and support the communities who are both affected and infected by the pandemic. "We need to lobby the governments to provide better access to the antiretroviral medications and improve the conditions for

Canada World Youth participants marked December 1 as World AIDS Day by handing out ribbons and asking students at Augustana to complete a questionnaire.

the people taking them so they will be more effective," he said. "You can't just provide the medications for people who are living in poverty and expect them to work because the medications can't be absorbed into the body if there isn't any food." Mdledle feels a l ot of the problems with HIV and AIDS could be resolved if there was more human compassion. "I am convinced that if we all showed a l ittle more human kindness nobody would need help," he said. Eye-opening experience

The Canada World Youth team arrived in Camrose at the end of September to begin work with local organizations on projects designed to raise awareness

of international and local issues and to build global partnerships. "They have grown in themselves and they have impacted this community in a tremendous way," said Mdledle. "We have received many positive comments as project supervisors about the good work that they are doing. They have been generous with their own time, skills and expertise, and they are making a b ig difference. A recent example was when they helped the people at the Ukrainian Catholic Church put on a perogy dinner. They (participants) actually approached the people at the church and said they wanted to provide their assistance. Having never ventured out-

side the borders of his own country, Madiba wasn't sure when he arrived in Camrose what to expect. "At first I t hought Canada was a quiet country, but I quickly found out there are just as many problems here as there are anywhere else," he said. Madiba has been surprised at how open and welcoming Camrosians have been towards all the CWY participants. "People here are very kind and open minded about things," he said. "The things I have learned here have really broadened my mind." The youth spent three months earlier this year in Athlone, South Africa, where the

Canadian team members were able to absorb a n ew culture while conducting presentations with their South African counterparts on AIDS and HIV, domestic violence and substance abuse. The hands-on training the Canada World Youth participants receive as part of the program help them obtain the skills they need in their future careers, whether it be i n government, education, health, social services, sports and recreation, environment or the arts. "We hope to educate ourselves while we are here and hope that through our public engagement we will be able to leave behind a l egacy," said Mdledle.
