Deb Cryderman, Camrose Public Library and Lucy Ernst, Lora Miller and Nina Lindberg of Alberta Health Services, are personal “cheerleaders” for individuals who want to quit smoking.

Lynn Storeshaw relives a major life achievement by symbolically breaking a supersized cigarette in half. 33 years ago her 1980 New Year’s resolution was to never smoke again. She hasn’t! It took a conscious decision to quit, encouragement from friends and family and an abundance of personal commitment.

Locally, Alberta Health Services and the Camrose Public Library have teamed up to congratulate “quitters” and to motivate current tobacco users to drop the potentially lethal habit. The local spin-off of the national campaign is entitled Majority Do! and includes a Quitter’s Wall of Fame prominently posted at the library. It will feature decals displaying the names of people who have kicked the habit. A second Quitter’s Wall of Fame will be at the Smith Clinic as motivation to others who want to join the “Quitting Feels Good” revolution. In addition, people serious about ending their tobacco addictions are encouraged to join the next cessation group, “QuitCore,” starting January 30th.

Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz (centre) and Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson (left) discuss agriculture-related matters with Kelly Olson at the Canadian Bull Congress. Minister Ritz was first elected to Parliament in 1997. He was re-elected in 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011. He was named Secretary of State (Small Business and Tourism) in January 2007 and appointed Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food and Minister for the Canadian Wheat Board in August 2007. During the course of his career, Mr. Ritz has run his own farming operation, owned and operated a general contracting business and co-owned a weekly newspaper. By Dan Jensen

Federal Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz is feeling pretty good about the state of agriculture in Canada. "There is a lot of rebuilding of an industry that has struggled over the years," said Ritz at the Canadian Bull Congress breakfast Jan. 18. "For a number of years the only calls I was getting were farmers saying that they were in terrible trouble. This past fall the calls I was getting were ones from farmers who were com-

plaining about having to pay too much tax." Minister Ritz said that events like the Canadian Bull Congress show that there is a renewed interest in the agriculture industry. "People are excited to get back into agriculture. We are seeing some younger faces around the tables now. We are starting to see a reinvestment from the youth back into agriculture, something that is driven by a good solid bottom line." Minister Ritz said the Canadian and Alberta govern-

ments are having success in developing exciting new programming and growing exciting new markets in the Pacific Rim. "There is a hungry world out there and a world that has an ability to pay for. People are looking for quality and consistency; they are looking for security and supply. They are also looking for the social benefits, like a lighter environmental footprint. Canadian producers and those in Alberta as well have the ability to step up and provide that."

The Our Lady of Mount Pleasant (OLMP) Interact Leadership Club is up and in full swing, thanks to our local sponsor, the Rotary Club of Camrose. I would like to start with a huge thank you to our sponsor; without that our club would not be able to have done all the great things we have so far or to continue with our future plans. In the short time we have been together we have completed a Purple Pinky Polio fundraiser where we collected over $200 in one lunch hour, a bake sale, and both a toy and coat drive benefiting local organizations. We are currently underway in planning a number of other projects to also take place this year. On Jan. 14, the club held its Charter Night where we were formally recognized by Rotary International. We were very lucky to have Rotary district governor, Kevin Hilgers, and the District New Generations chair, Laura Morie in attendance with us that night. We are very excited to announce the upcoming Pasta Carnival Night at OLMP school on Friday, Feb. 1. Ticket sales are available to the public and funds raised will help with our mission trip to Belize over this coming spring break. Join us for allages family festivities including dinner, entertainment, carnival games, and great prizes. We are also happy to receive donations of books or sports equipment to take with us and use toward service projects. For general inquiries, donations, or tickets to the Pasta Carnival Night, contact us at olmpinteractleadershipclub@

Rotary Club undertakes school building project By Dan Jensen


They're heading for the trop-

Rotary Club of Camrose members are preparing for a trip to Belize, where they will be building a 24- by 60-foot three classroom school in the community of Otoxha as part of a Rotary District 5370 commitment to improving that country's literacy. "There are about seven or eight Rotarians going down in different stages," said Rotarian Ron Grue, who will be leaving Jan. 28. "The Our Lady of Mount Pleasant Interact Club will be going down during spring break to hopefully do the painting." The Rotarians will be assisted with the build by Otoxha volunteers, as well as a few local contractors that Grue will be hiring when he arrives. "The masons will cost $45 per day (each) and their helpers will cost $25 per day (each) but the community there is volunteering a lot of the work." Otoxha's current school house is too small to meet the existing needs. "They have four teachers and only three classrooms, and they want to start a kindergarten. They also want to have a teachers' staff area. With the new three room school they will have what they need. They were at first talking about a temporary structure but I said if I am going to build something I wound prefer to build something that is going to last." The design drawings for the new school have been done by Zetsen Master Builders.

A drawing of the school the Rotary Club will be building at Otoxha.

Ways you can support the Rotary Club of Camrose school building project: – Pay for the cost of a Mason for $45 per day or $270 per week. – Purchase 100 square feet of block wall for $100. A total of 2,500 square feet is required. Or purchase one of 140 bags of cement. – Purchase one of the three entrance doors, complete with locks, to the school classrooms, for $200 each. – Purchase one of the nine windows required for $300. – Purchase the material to make a truss for the roof. Sixteen trusses are needed at a cost of $75 per truss. – Purchase a sheet of metal roofing at a cost of $60. The school requires 40 sheets. – Purchase a truck load of sand or gravel for $550. A total of three truck loads are needed. – Purchase a bag of cement for $10. – Purchase a 40-foot length of rebar for the project at $15. A total of 45 pieces are required. – Purchase materials to build 16 trusses at $75 per truss. All donations may be made to the Rotary Club of Camrose. Cheques may be given to any Rotarian or sent to Box 1464, Camrose, Alberta, T4V 2X4. The Rotary Club of Camrose is asking local businesses, organizations and individuals to help with the cost of building the school, which has an estimated

cost of $20,000, not including the volunteer labour. "Anyone who wants to support the project can give the donations to Rotary," said Grue.

"I will use them to purchase materials when I get there. We have had good support for past projects that we have done as Rotary and we are hoping that generous support continues." The Rotarians who are going are paying for their airfare to Belize, as well as their accommodation. Living conditions will be basic at best – no hotels, running water or power. "The work will be hard and the days long and hot but the reward of having made a difference to this small community of Otoxha will be great," said Grue. Anyone who is interested in helping is asked to contact Grue right away to discuss what is involved. Tools that are needed for the project will be purchased if required. The Rotary Club of Punta Gorda is arranging to provide a number of the items. Rotary District 5370, which includes the Rotary Club of Cam-

rose, Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak, and about 48 other clubs has been supporting the Belize Literacy Program for the last several years. Along with providing professional development for teachers, assistance in revising elementary school language arts, math and science curricula, the program assists the Belize Ministry of Education and Youth in supplying internet access and computers to elementary schools. "We have already sent computers to this little community and we are just in the process of doing something with setting them up with solar panels to generate electricity," said Grue. Next year's project will be shipping the old Ecole Sifton playground. "We took that down after the new one went in and we will be raising money so we can cover the cost of shipment," said Grue. "We will be going down there again next year to set it up." The job of project manager is one for which Grue is well suited as both a carpenter and the former owner of Camrose Custom Cabinets. He has assisted with several volunteer building projects in Mexico, Colombia and Honduras, and was the project manager for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, as well as several Habitat homes. He will be the person in charge of the construction of a new Rotary Youth Centre in Camrose starting this spring. "I will do whatever it takes to make this school a reality," he said.

Covenant Health shares year-end information By Murray Green

Although Camrose is still short a few doctors and nurses, Camrose has had its share of successes in health care. Covenant Health St. Mary's Hospital Camrose shared a review of 2012 with community and health leaders at the University of Alberta, Jan. 16. "We have a wonderful partnership with Alberta Health Services in planning – not just with Camrose, but across the entire region," said Sheli Murphy, Covenant Health vicepresident of operations rural services. "We look at the area and expand into the surrounding area, the central zone and the entire province to make sure we are doing the right things. We are working on area planning that include Bashaw, Daysland and Camrose. That has just begun. In the future, we will look further into Wetaskiwin, Killam and Viking to see how they impact us. It is important to have service planning, so health care is similar in the area. It's not just about gaining efficiencies, but also sustainability. " Covenant Health is on the edge of a bubble. "We know we are going to start having trouble with sustainability with having enough staff to do the work and we want to make sure the services we provide, are still provided in a

meaningful way to those people who require them in the area," explained Sheli. "We are on our last year of a three-year accreditation cycle. This really helps us, knowing when this takes place. We can make ongoing improvements and not just wait for accreditation to tell us," said Sheli. "We received 90 per cent for the third time to put us in the top 30 per cent in the province. St. Mary's played a huge part in that success." St. Mary's has always been good at strategic planning, but has not always aligned with other internal processes. "We want to bring together our structure, programs and services, so no matter which hospital you go into, it feels the same," added Sheli. Alan Heyhurst, the chair of St. Mary's community board and foundation, pointed to the local success. "The past chair did an excellent job in getting a chapel built for us at St. Mary's. It has been something that we lacked since it was built." The hospital also set up scholarships and held fundraising events to purchase equipment not covered by regular funding. "We are working together with local groups and help them. We recently met with the Camrose Hospice Society," said Alan. "We might not be able to

help them right away, but we created a relationship within the community." St. Mary's executive director Cherylyn Antymniuk shared the fact the hospital has remained fairly constant in staff numbers and visit totals. "We have 425 staff members, the same as last year. Our births are going up and we expect that total to climb," Cherylyn said. "We started an arterial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) trial and partnered with Primary Care Network, which was a great success. If we found something irregular we sent them on for further testing. About 6,300 patients, over five months, were tested and out of that 182 were asked to come in for further testing or referred to the stroke preventive clinic. That is amazing and staggering." The Unit 2 medicine ward was nominated for the Mission Award for Compassion. "We had a patient who wanted to get married at the hospital, so staff prepared the chapel, prepared hair and make-up, took pictures and made it top notch. They did this all out of their own pockets for this family," Cherylyn said proudly. "We restructured the nurses to add patient care managers. This increased the managers from three to six and this was a really positive move.

They have provided leadership and someone to go to for staff members," said Cherylyn. "Our challenge is attraction and retention of all rural health care professionals." City of Camrose Deputy Mayor Greg Wood talked about the Camrose Performing Arts Centre and the partnership between Augustana and the city. He also spoke about a core services review that will take place this year. Cherylyn then described the Camrose and Area Physician Attraction and Retention committee. "We are going to have some doctors retiring in the near future, so we need more doctors. We don't have enough Canadian trained family doctors and specialists to recruit, therefore the committee started to recruit abroad. But, as we found out, that takes time," said Cherylyn. "The committee has been set up for successful outcomes, but it takes time to educate members, engage communities and attract potential recruits." Primary Care Network has been a good partner for St. Mary's. "About 29,000 people have used the Primary Care Network and all of the local physicians are taking part in their programs," said Leanne Grant, of Alberta Health Services. "PCN really helps people

navigate through the system to find the department they need." Dr. Deirdre Jackman of the University of Alberta Faculty of Nursing stated how critical the rural health care facilities are. "About 6.3 million people in Canada, or 18.9 per cent of the population need health care in the rural areas. We still need agriculture and natural resource sustainability. The number of registered nurses working and living in the rural area has dropped from 17.9 to 13.7 per cent due to retirements. We need partnerships to teach and retain rural medical professionals," said Deirdre. "The after degree nursing program is making strides in keeping rural nurses in rural areas." Deirdre pointed out that Edmonton has 123 physicians per 100,000 people. The central zone has 92 physicians for the same number of people. The average age is 50.5 years and that is increasing. "We need younger doctors and nurses, and support staff. People may be persuaded to stay if they have a more reasonable workload and professional backup." Leanne also outlined the goals of Alberta Health Services. "We want to fill vacancies, improve the workforce engagement and retention, and share services and information."

CAM FM 98.1 and W1440 AM Welcome New Radio Station Manager June Meeboer is new on the radio scene in Camrose and Wetaskiwin, but she is certainly no stranger to the profession. As the new station manager for CAM FM 98.1 in Camrose and also for W1440 AM in Wetaskiwin (part of the successful Newcap Radio Group). June brings formal training and a diversity of multi-province experience to the position. After graduating from the famed Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario, where often the best personalities in radio begin their careers, June and another student broke long-standing tradition and became the college’s first female DJs. Her success continued after graduation when June was offered the position of full-time station manager – a feat never before achieved by a student! June quickly moved through the ranks of radio earning a reputation for excellence in copywriting, sales and management. Opportunities for career advancement came with roles in print, video production, publishing and online advertising after her move to Alberta in 1980. June (Ross) Meeboer June is passionate about her hobbies of cycling, hiking, golf and yoga. She is a certified Laughter Yoga Leader. Research has proven that laughter has significant physical and physiological benefits for people of all ages. The health of seniors, an age group she loves to work with, is often greatly enhanced by the laughter June helps bring out in lively, entertaining sessions. June is proud of her family. She is mom to a daughter who loves her teaching profession and a son (presently in Australia) who works as an I.T. specialist. Although she is presently commuting daily from Edmonton, June plans to make the move to Camrose. Her personal and corporate goal is to become deeply involved in the communities of Camrose and Wetaskiwin.

Mayor Chalmers proposes idea of sport society By Dan Jensen

Mayor Marshall Chalmers believes it is time for the City of Camrose to be more proactive with its efforts to attract high profile events. Mayor Chalmers proposed to City council Jan. 7 the reestablishment of a new sports or special events body that would have duties similar to those of the former Camrose Games Society. "We don't have a structure like the Games Society right now to deal with opportunities that are presented to us," said the mayor. "We need to resurrect that so that when we get

the opportunity we can give it to them and tell them go look at it." Councillor Gerry Galenza agreed it is time for the City to step forward. "I think it is possible with our encouragement to have something like this." Galenza said it is important that the City be aggressive in challenging other communities for events and take advantage of the strengths it possesses. "We are centrally located and that is a big advantage." Galenza said holding big sporting events would be a way for the City to improve some of the Camrose facilities.

Front Porch pays tribute to The Band By Murray Green

The Front Porch Roots Revue will honour its own past by paying tribute to Robbie Robertson and The Band at the Bailey Theatre on Jan. 25. The tribute tour entitled Up on Cripple Creek covers the hits from The Band, which gained popularity as Canadians by singing songs from the deep southern United States. J.R. Shore, who played at Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar last weekend, is joining in the fun of mastering the songs the band grew up listening to. "When you see a community, such as Camrose, come together to preserve a piece of history like the Bailey Theatre, it also helps the performers. We want to play well in a classic theatre and share in its history," said J.R. Shore, who will be on stage with Front Porch. "It shows this community takes pride in its place and it's a wonderful thing." The Front Porch Roots Revue is an all-star band made up of western Canadians. "Front Porch is an interesting band because it have three regular members and a group of 15 musicians from Winnipeg to the west coast who rotate in and out," said producer Peter North. "When Peter asked me to join this project, it was an honour for me. Other skilled musicians are added ingredients to some of the best musicians in this province who make up Front Porch. When you add a song book from one of the best Canadian bands of all time, add in good guys and good music, it is a recipe for success. How could I say no?" asked J.R. "I don't play a lot of shows, so this is a great way for me to stay out there and keep playing. My band is made up of people from across Canada, so we don't tour as much. Being involved in a project like Up on Cripple Creek is a great opportunity for me to play great music with great guys." The Up On Cripple Creek, Tribute to The Band was listed in the Calgary Herald as one of the most memorable shows of

Ron Rault, left, and Dave "Crawdad" Cantera of the Front Porch Roots Revue will be joined by J.R. Shore to pay tribute to The Band.

2012, alongside Neil Young, Feist and Bob Dylan. "Before I knew much about its (The Band) story, I enjoyed the songs that are part of the American song book. It has songs to which you learned the words before you knew who sang them," said J.R. "It's part of the roots' DNA. There was already musical familiarity with The Band. Four out of the five members where Canadians, who had an infinity for the music of the American south. It wasn't that they disowned their country, but it was something that intrigued them about southern American history. They found stories and culture that were just waiting to be told through song. I have that same love for history and love telling those stories as well." This all-star Alberta tribute to one of music’s most beloved and enduring acts provides the perfect spark for an entertaining evening. Front Porch works its magic on the timeless hits such as "The Weight," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "Up On Cripple Creek" in the historic Bailey Theatre. "The sound is a mix of country, folk, blues and jazz all coming together. Today it is called Americana or roots music. Content-wise it intrigued me because of the civil war history. The music of The Band has touched a lot of people even if people don't think

of their name right away. I certainly draw on a lot of my history through the band." J.R. will be making music history in Camrose by playing both Scalliwags and the Bailey Theatre within six days. "I look forward to playing in both venues with two crowds. They are different projects to me, so people can enjoy both shows. I'm excited to share both projects with a music loving community. Camrose isn't a huge place, but there is great support for this type of music. I think people will appreciate hearing some of my original songs, as well as the hits from The Band. It is not unlike my new album where I have one CD with my material and one with cover songs." The venues might be a contrast, but J.R. believes they have a common audience. "Whether its 400 people at the Bailey or 50 at Scalliwags, as long as people are listening to me and at least taking in what I'm offering, that's the common denominator for me on how much I enjoy a place. Having appreciative audiences is what it's all about." Lynn Maric and Aisha Mendes will be joining the Front Porch Roots revue for CD release shows in Camrose, Calgary and Edmonton. The Bailey doors open an hour before the 8 p.m. show.

Homes needed to help international students By Murray Green

The Battle River School Division International Student Program needs help hosting foreign students in Camrose. The majority of the international students, who receive an education in the area, attend regular classes at the Camrose Composite High School. The Battle River School Division (BRSD) invites students from all over the world to live in the area for high quality educational opportunities. The school division then contracts Joanne Morrison, of the local Canada Homestay International organization, to assist in matching students with local residents for the maximum benefits for both parties. BRSD will soon have 25 international students with the majority of them working with the Canada Homestay International organization. "The BRSD International Student Program invites students to study here. Canada Homestay plays a very important and valuable part in that program," explained Greg Friend, BRSD manager of human resources. "Foreign students like enrolling within the Battle River School Division because it is committed to providing excellent educational and personal growth experiences for students." International students are welcomed and made to feel at home, while they receive the best possible Canadian education. The communities are small and friendly. The schools offer academic, vocational, fine arts and personal development opportunities. "We will have 21 of the 25 foreign students under our portion of the program. However, we expect six more students to arrive in late January to attend the second semester classes," said Joanne. "We are looking for more homes to house the students until the end of June." Besides usual studies, English second language programs also assist international students. CCHS (one student is in New Norway) provides academic and vocational programs, as well as fine arts and personal growth opportunities. "My parents asked me if I wanted to go to Canada and learn and I said sure," said JaeHun Jeon of Korea. "It costs less for education here and you have choices in Canada on what subjects to take. In Korea, we have two subjects. Not really choices." JaeHun wants to finish his education at CCHS and then go back to his country before deciding his future. "I have to be a soldier for two years first because of the conflict between North and South Korea." Japan's Koya Kawaguchi's reasons for coming to Canada are simple. "I really wanted to learn English. Going to school and living here is a faster way to learn a new language," he said. "The second reason for me, is to

play hockey. The hockey is way better in Canada and this gives me a chance to do both. I can learn English and play hockey at the same time." Both JaeHun and Koya stay in Camrose at Audrey Hitman's home. "I knew of her (Audrey) because other hockey players have stayed with her before and I knew they were treated well. That's why I came to Camrose," added Koya. "English is the biggest, most common language in the world and I want to learn it. In Japan, it is strict and we are told what classes to be in. In Canada, we can take whatever classes we want too." Audrey has been a friend to a lot of foreign students and to the BRSD and Canada Homestay International. "I have been hosting students for a long time," said Audrey. "They are the love of my life. It has been fantastic. I feel, I have travelled the entire world without having to leave home very often." Audrey has gone to several countries to visit former students and has enjoyed the friendships the program has given her. "When I go over, I get to know the families of the former student. It's just a wonderful experience." Audrey encourages Camrose residents to get involved with the program because of the many hosting benefits. "If you have had teenagers in your household, you know what to expect," said Audrey. "They are even better than your own children because they

are focused on why they are here and what they have to accomplish. They teach me as much as I teach them." The Battle River School Division has 35 schools providing instruction for 6,300 students. Camrose is the major centre, with a population of 17,000. Another attraction to Camrose is the fact it is located just one hour from the Edmonton International Airport. "Ever since I was little, my dream was to go to Canada. I think Canada is so beautiful with its scenery," said Frida Torres, a student from Mexico. "The classes and grading are so different here. The way teachers teach is different. It is a whole new experience for me. Here you get better prepared for the future." Frida completed her high school in Mexico, but wanted to add extra subjects to her resume. "Drama is my favourite subject and it is something I wouldn't have taken at home. Learning the language and culture is important." Hirotaka Yamashiro of Japan also listed learning English as his main reason for seizing the opportunity to visit Camrose. "That's my reason. I have been to the United States twice, but I wanted to live in Canada," added Hirotaka, a Grade 11 student. "In Canada, we have a choice, where in Japan we don't. I decided to take biology, but it is hard. I like gym, math and stained glass classes. I played football here just for fun. We don't have that in Japan. We

can't skate in Japan where I'm from." Hirotaka said moving to Camrose has brought him back to wanting to learn again. "We take a lot of little things for granted here in Canada," said Marie Wilson, who provides a home, along with Greg Jonson, for the two students. "We have three teenagers of our own, so you can see the differences. On Christmas morning we open presents. They celebrate Christmas, but without the presents. His (Hirotaka) parents visited us last summer and we are hoping to visit Japan. It is a fantastic cultural exchange. He has made so many friends, through football, that he has become independent. If he needs a ride, I go get him just like I would for my own children. He brings in so many other foreign students, so it is learning for us as well." Marie said the program has expanded her own horizons. "It allows us to learn other cultures and I would do it again. One of things we did was go camping. The first things he asked to do when his family came to visit was build a bonfire. I just want everyone to think about hosting students because it is such a fantastic experience. It is so amazing, beyond words I can say." Gail Rombough recently became a host for students. "At first you hesitate because you don't want to go through having teenagers in your home again. But, when they run to you and talk about the moose or deer they saw walk down the street, it becomes so worth it. It is a great experience and it is fun. I tend to say, "you betcha" a lot and then they question what that means and it gets you thinking and "We expect six more students to arrive in late January to attend the second semester classes. We are looking for more homes to house the students until the end of June." learning about their culture. It's about life learning." Joanne bridges the gap between BRSD providing a high level of education and students setting in the community. "Students apply to the school board and then the board comes to me to place them in homes," she explained, on the process. "I have to recruit families. That is hard. Most of the new families come from word of mouth because unless you have hosted before, you don't realize how good an experience it really is." Joanne worked on nursing teams at a few different hospitals and also worked for 12 years as a first responder and volunteer firefighter in a very active fire and rescue department. She worked as a coordinator of an HIV/Aids awareness program directed

at youth in Wainwright and spent many years as a volunteer victim services advocate in the Provost area. "I do a lot of networking. People are allowed to have more than one student, but it has to be students from different countries. That way, it forces them to learn English and not just talk their own language," said Joanne. "I match the students' likes and dislikes with families to make it comfortable for everyone. We try our best. The students are really good because it costs them a lot to come over and they have a lot riding on it, so we don't have very many problems." Host families receive a monthly cash allowance to cover the cost of food and lodging. International students must cover their personal expenses. Joanne has the task of seeking more homes for the new semester. "The students have to sign an agreement with us too, so they know the rules and expectations. In most cases they just become an extension of your family," she said. "I interview the family, references are checked and then it is my job to check on them all of the time. I am the legal custodian, so parents don't have the liability. That makes host families more comfortable." Joanne joined the Canada Homestay International Team to work along with the Battle River School Division, host families and students from around the globe. "Camrose is small enough that all of the students build relationships with each other. I then become their big parent," said Joanne. "The program is popular, so the numbers are increasing. The students we have told us that their brothers or sisters are coming in the future." After living in the large cities across the world, coming to a small city like Camrose is a breath of fresh air. "They learn about roasting marshmallows, taking in the scenery and being involved in the community," said Joanne. "The school board recruits students into the program and then I help ensure all of the parties are meeting their expectations." Some students stay in Camrose for one semester, while others continue to come back for two or three years. "You are not tied down. You can take a respite and they leave at the end of June added Joanne. "The students come here for all kinds of reasons. Learning English through the BRSD is the most common reason. The thing they all have in common, is that they want to be here and learn. The one advantage we have here is that they have to learn and hang out with others and not with students from the same country." For more information visit or contact the BRSD.

Diamond Jubilee Medal presented to Dr. McIver By Murray Green

Dr. George McIver was proud to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his service to Canada and his Camrose community. The Calgary-born and Saskatchewan-raised (Herbert) Dr. McIver moved to Wolseley in 1934 to finish high school. After high school he joined the Air Force. "I tried to enlist when I was 17, but they sent me back until I was 18. That was back in 1940," recalled the former dentist. "We had an Anglican minister who taught me the Morse code. I enlisted as a wireless operator and the first thing I


was in the number one wireless school in Canada, in Montreal. I was half way through the course and my code speed was up to 20 words a minute. They pulled me off and put me on staff. I spent the war years at various wireless operator schools across Canada teaching Morse code to others." Dr. McIver left the Montreal training centre to go to the second ranked centre in Winnipeg and then eventually to the third-ranked station in Calgary. "I asked to move west from Montreal. I ended up in Western Air Command after Calgary closed and that was in Prince George." After the Second World War, Dr. McIver enrolled in school

again. The former sergeant in the Air Force moved to Camrose in 1950. "When I graduated from dentistry in 1950, Dr. Ness was retiring in Camrose. I came down here and took over his practice." His son Dr. Pat McIver then took over the family business in 1987. "I was very active in the community. If there was something I could do to help out, I would," explained Dr. McIver. "I didn't hesitate to join in." Dr. McIver belonged to the local Kinsmen, Rotary and Legion clubs for more than 60 years. He also helped with cubs, scouts, disaster services and the Camrose United Church. "I

started to slow down when I hit 90," he said. "I have been an active member in the community for a long time and the Diamond Jubilee Medal is an honour to receive because it recognizes the contribution to the community," Dr. McIver said. "It just became a natural thing for me to do (volunteering). I was a cub master for 20 years and that included camping and everything else with cubs, so I was quite involved with the scout movement." Dr. McIver taught his wife Morse code and they spent many hours with the ham amateur operated radio club in Camrose. "I was very honoured to

At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Focus on achievement of worthy dreams Last Thursday morning I watched with awe the television presentation of a question and answer session between Chris Hadfield and students gathered in an elementary school gymnasium. I was awestruck because Chris Hadfield was in space and the students were on Earth in Ontario, and they were speaking to each other with perfect video and audio reception of the two-way conversation. To me, and folks of my generation who once believed it would never be possible to fly to the moon, this was truly awesome, an amazing and marvellous feat achieved by collaborative master minds in the fields of science and technology. While I think the students considered the event to be a special occasion – talking to an astronaut – I am sure the fact that they could communicate as they did seemed very ordinary. Chris Hadfield is the Canadian astronaut who is presently on a five-month research mission as commander of the International Space Station. Hadfield grew up on an Ontario farm. He was not yet ten years old when he watched on television, in July 1969, the landing of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the Moon, and heard Armstrong say: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” That created in him a burning desire to become an astronaut, which he eventually did. He was the first Canadian to walk in space, and the first to use the Canadarm in orbit, and he is now on his third mission in space. One of the many questions students asked Hadfield last Thursday morning was, “How did you get to be the best Canadian astronaut?” Hadfield answered, with modesty, that he didn’t claim to be the best among other Canadian astronauts, but emphasized that it necessitated keeping his life-long focus on the goal, choosing the studies that would lead to achieving that goal, and lots of dedicated hard work to excel in learning what he needed to know. Other questions were of lighter vein which were invitations to Hadfield to demonstrate lack of gravitational pull in space, to do a few somersaults, play his guitar, look out of the space window and describe what he saw – the beautiful blue orb that is Earth and the continent of South America. When asked ,“What is the first thing you want to do when you come back to Earth?” Hadfield replied without hesitation, “Have a shower; in space we can’t have a shower.” (Just another reminder that we often take for granted our many earthly blessings and are not adequately grateful.} Sometimes we hear younger people say that older folks don’t understand what life is like today because older people grew up without radio, telephone, television, computers, cell phones, electrical power, natural gas for heating, air travel, ventures into space, robots, vaccines, organ transplants, et cetera and et cetera. That is true but we need to be aware that it was people who are old today that invented them. That precipitates the question to today's students: What will you invent or do to make a better world? I suppose technology will be refined and there will be new scientific discoveries. There is a great need to improve human relationships and I hope the next outstanding strides forward will be in that area. What the world needs is less disparity and more sharing of responsibilities and benefits; more mutual trust and understanding; more attention to things that really matter like fairness and justice rather than self-indulgence. May Hadfield inspire today's students to focus on worthy dreams!

Camrose responds to elder abuse Submitted Agencies, businesses and nonprofit organizations will be coming together to learn how the Camrose community plans to address the

issue of elder abuse. This comes at the completion of a yearlong process to develop tools, resources and processes specific to the needs of Camrose and area. Free workshops on Jan. 24 and Feb. 13 will provide two opportunities for those who interact with seniors to develop skills in supporting people who are experiencing abuse. This includes all who connect with seniors, whether in businesses, social clubs, churches, health care or recreation. Participants can choose modules ranging from 90 minutes to three hours in length, or can register for the full day running 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The workshops are hosted by the Family Violence Response Council, an interagency network of Camrose organizations. Training is delivered by Community Initiatives Against Abuse. The term elder abuse refers to a pattern of abusive acts, or

lack of appropriate action, in a relationship of intimacy, dependency or trust. Most elder abuse takes place at the hands of someone the older adult knows, like a family member, friend, caregiver or landlord. The purpose of the abuse is to gain power and control and often to induce fear. Elder abuse can take many forms. Physical, financial, medical, emotional, spiritual, sexual abuse and neglect are all ways in which one person might exert power and control over another. According to Statistics Canada, seven per cent of seniors surveyed in 1999 reported some form of emotional or financial abuse by an adult child, caregiver or spouse in the five years previous. Applying that statistic to the City of Camrose, we would expect more than 225 seniors locally have experienced some form of abuse at the hands of a trusted person in recent years. “Elder abuse is a complex and delicate issue to address, said Sheralyn Dobos, chairperson for the Family Violence

Response Council. “Because of close, dependent relationships seniors have with those who use abusive behaviors against them, seniors are often fearful to speak about the abuse. Our aging population underscores the importance of creating an effective community response to this social issue.” The Elder Abuse Response project is funded by a Municipal Sustainability Initiative Grant from the City of Camrose and contributions from Camrose Ministerial Association, Primary Care Network, Association of Communities Against Abuse, Camrose and District Support Services, Camrose Seniors’ Coalition and Family Violence Action Society. The development process was led by Community Initiatives Against Abuse after having supported numerous communities throughout the province in similar processes.

Kodiaks add two players, start another streak By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks added two new players to the line-up and launched another winning streak. Camrose had a sevengame winning streak snapped with two losses, but the Kodiaks are back on track with two recent victories. "We had a lot of phone calls – because we have good young players, inquiring about guys we didn't want to give up," said Boris Rybalka, coach and general manager of the Kodiaks. "We were looking for a power play, left shooting, defenceman to add to our offence. Ironically, we didn't have to give up anything to get Layne Viveiros." Layne was playing defence with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League and has joined Camrose for the remainder of the season. "If you look at their roster, they are loaded for bear (pretty deep), as I call it," explained Boris. "Layne, on any other team, would be playing regularly. But, they have a lot of depth. I talked with Travis Green (former Boston Bruin) and Mike Johnston (former Vikings coach) about developing him here and sending him back to Portland next fall." Layne just turned 17 and is expected to play a leading role on the Portland defence next season. "His skill level is high. He skates and competes well and I believe he will be a professional player one day. Camrose fans will be treated to watching him play here over the next three months. He was the best defenceman available and the bonus was that he didn't cost us anything or anybody." The Kodiaks developed Adam de Champlain for Portland last year. "They were ecstatic on how much he developed and they wanted us to help them with Layne. Yes, we would like to win championships every year, but our job is to develop players and send them to the next level. The Winterhawks have earned our trust in developing players and it has paid off with them sending

us a good player when we needed one," Boris added. "It's a win-win situation for us." In a playoff atmosphere, the Kodiaks needed overtime to edge the Okotoks Oilers 1-0 in an exciting game in front of close to 2,000 fans on Jan. 12. "Our guys played a great playoff-style hockey game. We were down to eight forwards at one point. We have players battling the flu, we dressed affiliates and Cam Gotaas was ejected for taking on a tough guy. He showed guts taking on the tough Okotoks defenceman," said Boris. "We are preparing for the playoffs and it was nice to have a great game like that

with about 2,000 fans in the building." Connor Mailey was the hero when he converted a Kirsten Odendaal play at the 1:35 minute mark of the extra frame. Both goalies received the star of the game. Devin McDonald stopped all 36 shots in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks recorded 24 shots on the Oilers' net. Camrose was down 2-0 before it garnered five straight tallies to beat Sherwood park 5-2 on Jan. 11 at the EnCana Arena. Newcomer Layne Viveiros made an immediate impact by setting up two power play goals from the point. Sniper Brett Njaa

led the scoring with two tallies, while Luc Lemire, Tanner MacMaster and Nolan Marshall chipped in with single tallies. McDonald stopped 38 of the 40 shots he faced for the Kodiaks. Camrose directed 33 at the Crusaders' net. The Kodiaks added a familiar face to the roster. Veteran Tanner Marshall returned to Camrose to help the bears make a long playoff run. "We were also looking for a power forward to provide us with energy and pick up a few points along the way. There were a few players available, but we were not willing to give any of our talent away," Boris continued. "Tanner Marshall was available and

he played for us last year. The coaches agreed that here is a player who knows us and our systems. He was hurt last year and hasn't played yet this year. What I like about Tanner, is that he has a great attitude and knows what we are about. He gives us added experience and leadership. We didn't give up anything and we received two quality players." The bears did suffer one casualty at the trade deadline. "We did lose Scott Feser, but I don't want to call it a loss. Our job is to develop players and he improved so much that Brent Sutter wanted him back," explained Boris. Scott is back in the WHL. The Red Deer Rebels recalled him to central Alberta to finish the season with the team. "With the number of injuries the Rebels have had, this has given Scott the opportunity to get back to the WHL. Scott knows that he starts on the fourth line and has to work his way up the ladder. We are happy that we did our job to move him back up, but at the same time we didn't want to lose a player of his skill level. Scott was about a point a game player for us." Good working relationships with WHL clubs will benefit the Kodiaks. "The WHL teams can trust us that we are helping the athletes develop, even if it is for only three months," added Boris. Camrose had one card open because they sent Kieran O'Neill to the Canucks a month ago. "We kept one card open to grab a veteran player to go along with our youth and Tanner will help us with leadership," said Boris. The Kodiaks are on a lengthy away stint. They travel to play the Calgary Mustangs on Jan. 22, the Canmore Eagles on Jan. 25, the Okotoks Oilers on Jan. 26 and the Calgary Canucks on Jan. 30 to close out the month. Camrose finally plays at home on Feb. 1 and 2 when the Eagles return for two games, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each night.

Augustana hockey team pulls to within a point of NAIT in the first game with 21 points and Kari Kubinec chipped in with 16 points. In the second contest, Kari netted 18 points to lead the way. The men's squad split the weekend series with a 96-64 loss and an 86-77 victory against Grant MacEwan. Two players went on a scoring spree for the Vikings. Lee Danderfer garnered 43 points, half of the amount the team scored, to lead Augustana to victory. David Shantz accounted for more than a third of the offence in the loss with 22 points. On Jan. 26, the Vikings host the King's Eagles from Edmonton at the Augustana campus with the women's game starting at 6 p.m. and the men's following at 8 p.m.

By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings hockey team sent a clear message to the Grant MacEwan Griffins on Jan. 12 – if you play with fire, you are going to get burned. The Griffins racked up 35 minutes in penalties, while Augustana received only three minor infractions. The Vikings scalded Grant MacEwan with four power play markers on their way to a 10-4 victory in Edmonton. Boyd Wakelin was red hot in leading the offence for the Vikings with a goal and four assists. Shawn Jacklin, Mathew Foster and Scott Aucion garnered two goals each, while Kenny Bradley, Devon Hobbs and Dane Bonish notched single tallies for Augustana. Grant MacEwan started playing well and ended the first period knotted up at 2-2. However, Augustana picked up the pace in the second when it scored just 32 seconds in. The Griffins' penalty troubles then began to mount. Joel Danyluk stopped 30

Augustana ladies dropped six straight games on Jan. 11 and 12 against the SAIT Trojans. In the first match SAIT won 25-23, 25-19 and 25-16. Stefanie Zahara was the leader for the Vikings with an ace, seven digs and three blocks. In the rematch, SAIT won 25-21, 25-23

and 25-19. Kristy Wade led the Vikings with 13 kills, four serve aces and six digs. Augustana is winless in its last 18 games and needs to change that streak against the Lakeland Rustlers. On the men's side, the Vikings put up enough of a fight to win a game in each match. SAIT won 25-23, 25-23, 22-25 and 25-19 in Camrose with Nazheef Gangji racking up 21 kills and added two serve aces. In Calgary, the Trojans won 23-25, 25-21, 25-14 and 25-13. Nazheef again led the team, this time with eight kills and two blocks. The Vikings head to Lethbridge for two matches on Jan. 25 and 26. Augustana's next home game is on Feb. 1 when Olds provides the opposition. The women's game begins at 6 p.m. and the men follow at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Biathlon

Second Thought By Alex Carpenter,

Thank you,

Music, Augustana Campus University of Alberta Rethinking Music and Violence

Can music make you a bad person? Can it make you do bad things? I pose these questions in the aftermath of the horrific Connecticut school shooting last month, in which six adults and 20 children were murdered by a 20-year old gunman. Prominent among the theories seeking to explain this act was the familiar argument that violent films and especially violent video games – those that simulate shooting people from a first-person perspective – should be held responsible, since they desensitize young men to violence. But why wouldn’t we also hold contemporary popular music – especially hip-hop, which shares with violent films and video games the very same fantasies of wanton murder without consequence – potentially culpable in a tragedy of this sort? The infamous Columbine school shooting of 1999 was perpetrated by a pair of misfit teen shooters who apparently listened to a particular brand of dark and aggressive music, and we were told by some concerned groups, may have been motivated to kill by the music’s nihilistic messages. While it was, and still is fashionable to dismiss as fanciful or paranoid the notion that music can turn kids bad, or lead to antisocial behaviour, it is nonetheless true that for thousands of years – as far back as Plato – we have been wary of music and aware of its potentially negative effects on society, and especially on young people. The weirdest part of the response to the recent Connecticut shooting is not that music has been ignored as a putative trigger for youth violence; it’s that musicians are now calling themselves out. We were knee-deep in apologies and disavowals from musicians, before anyone had asked for them. Pop singer Ke$ha apologized for her single “Die Young,” which celebrates neither violence nor death but rather advocates partying hard and living in the moment. It was pulled from radio playlists after the shooting, and Ke$ha said she was sorry for any negative impact the song may have had, genuf lecting well before the fact of any impact at all. Meanwhile, the 2010 song “Pumped up Kicks” by Foster the People, which describes a teen shooting incident in an attempt to bring attention to the problem of youth gun violence, was likewise pulled from the airwaves after the shooting. The band unequivocally supported the move not-

As of January 1, 2013 Camrose Animal Clinic no longer provides pound and rescue center services for the City of Camrose. During the time from May 2007 to December 31, 2012 we returned home to owners and adopted out a total of 1840 animals in Camrose and surrounding area. We thank all of those people who adopted and/or helped out to make the program a great success. Dr. Bibby and the staff at Camrose Animal Clinic

ing that pulling the song might be a “catalyst for a bigger conversation” about gun control (although, exactly how the song’s absence from the public airwaves might be helpful in launching a meaningful “conversation” is a notion we’ve yet to see fully realized). What a strange turn of events. There was a time when musicians, critics and fans all would have loudly asserted that music couldn’t possibly be to blame for social ills: it’s just music, after all; or, it’s art and so resides in a realm above moral or ethical probing. Now, some lightweight pop musicians are openly self-censoring, apologizing and withdrawing their music before the fact – just in case. Meanwhile, no one is pointing the finger of blame at hiphop, a musical genre that saturates our culture with celebrity personae, lyrics and images that glorify guns, violence, crime, immorality and misogyny. In seeking explanations for why young people commit violent acts, and why they seem desensitized to violence, or to suffering, or to evil, we should certainly look at the unhealthy fantasies propagated by violent movies and “first-person shooter” type video games; but, once we’re done there, we should immediately turn our gaze and ears towards the musical culture of contemporary hip-hop. You could literally start anywhere in this indictment. Perhaps with Eminem’s paean to serial murder, “Kill You”? Or with Lil’ Wayne’s “Sky’s the Limit,” in which the rapper repeatedly boasts of dying “with my finger on the trigger”? Or with Kanye West’s “Monster” video, which is littered with the disembodied “corpses” of nude female models. These examples are easily drawn from mainstream, not fringe culture. “I told you so,” one can almost hear Plato saying. More than two millennia ago, he warned that when music becomes “lawless,” immoral and purely pleasure-affirming it “inspires the multitude with lawlessness and boldness.” Music that disregards beauty, morality and shame, he believed, sounds the death-knell of society itself, and leads to “endless evils.” As we search for the sociocultural contexts that may underpin and help to explain increasingly frequent events like the Connecticut shootings, popular music should not be allowed to lurk unexamined behind a paperthin veneer of art.

A CBC undercover investigation, televised on June 12,

2012, found that 15 of the 22 ultrasound clinics visited were willing to perform so-called "entertainment ultrasounds" to disclose the sex of the unborn child prior to 20 weeks. The same investigation reported that women are being coerced into having an abortion when the sex of the child is determined to be female. This investigation followed two recent studies that suggest the practice of aborting females in favour of males, common in countries such as India and China, is happening right here in Canada. Statistics Canada figures for Abbotsford, B.C., which has one of the largest

Indo-Canadian communities in Canada, show that among children under 15 years of age, there are 121 boys for every 100 girls. The usual ratio is about 105 boys for every 100 girls. Member of Parliament Mark Warawa (Langley, B.C.) has tabled Motion 408: "that the House (of Commons) condemn discrimination against females, occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination." If you want to see an end to this practice in our country, please ask your Member of Parliament and the Prime Minister to vote in favour of Motion 408. Denise Feser, Camrose

Employers apply for summer job help Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson is inviting local employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program to help create jobs for students this summer. "Every year, we try to focus on local priorities, while achieving tangible results for both students and their communities through this federal initiative," said Sorenson. "It works in local economies throughout our large riding.” The Canada Summer Jobs initiative provides funding to

- Tooth Whitening - Oral Sedation for anxious patients - Restoration of Dental Implants - Laser Dentistry - Oral Cancer Screenings - TMJ Services such as splints - Dental Extractions, including wisdom teeth - Dental Cleanings and Exams

between February 1 and February 28, 2013. “Not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers, and small businesses create these high-quality summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years," said Sorenson. "These full-time students who intend to return to their studies in the next school year can return home for the summer months – and have a summer job. This is important to families in our riding and across Canada."

AHS promotes Non-smoking Week Alberta Health Services (AHS) has partnered with Albertans throughout the Central Zone to host inspirational events and share the latest health information in support of National Non-Smoking Week (NNSW), which runs Jan. 20-26. This year’s theme, “The Majority Do…”, encourages Albertans to highlight the many ways they prevent and reduce tobacco use. “We know that many Albertans already take an active role in protecting themselves and loved ones from the health risks of tobacco, and many more want to take that active role. We are here to help all Albertans in those efforts,” says Susan Canning, Tobacco Reduction Program Manager with AHS. A Quitters' Wall of Fame can be seen at Smith Medical Clinic in Duggan Mall and at the Camrose Public Library from Jan. 21 to 25. The wall will showcase quitting success stories to congratulate those who have quit tobacco and support others in their commitment towards a tobacco-free life. Residents are encouraged to share their own stories. A free lunch-and-learn seminar, Quitting Smoking: What You Need to Know, will be held Jan. 23 at noon at the Camrose Public Library. Tobacco use is the leading cause of disease, disability and premature death in the province. More than 3,000 Albertans die every year as a result of tobacco use and many more suffer from tobacco-related illnesses. AHS offers a variety of programs and services to help Albertans quit tobacco. “Our telephone and online support services, group cessation programs and one-on-one counselling are all free of charge and available to all Albertans,” says Canning. “Since launching our new Alberta Quits website in December, we’ve further expanded the accessibility and variety of support services available.” An annual event across Canada for more than 30 years, NNSW aims to raise awareness about the health risks of tobacco, in all its forms, as it provides education on the resources and support services available for those who wish to reduce or quit tobacco use. Many schools have National Non-Smoking Week events for their students.

Business Helping Business succeeding with teamwork By Dan Jensen

Charles Darwin could have been speaking directly to the Camrose Business Helping Business group when he said it is the long history of humankind that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed. Business Helping Business was started in the fall of 2012 as a way for businesses to help themselves and each other by sharing information and participating in joint marketing programs. "We believe there is strength in numbers," said Debbie Thompson, owner of From Kicks to Kids, who, along with Kim Turre, owner of Bra Necessities, helped the group get off the ground. "We believe if everybody works together we can make Camrose an even better place for business than it already is." Thompson and Turre had

Erin Pozerniuk (centre) was the winner of over $2,000 in gift certificates from businesses participating in the Elf on the Shelf contest. The contest had a fantastic response, with 186 entries, and generated a lot of buzz in the community as shoppers eagerly looked forward to each new clue. Many involved their children in the contest as well to turn it into a family affair. Participating businesses saw an increase in traffic and had an opportunity to gain new customers. Presenting the prize to Pozerniuk and her children, Jaslyn and Isaac, were Bra Necessities owner Kim Turre (left) and From Kicks to Kids owner Debbie Thompson.

noticed that many businesses were working on ideas and promotions on their own. "The programs they had put together were successful but they could have had a greater impact and resulted in greater success if they had done them with others," said Thompson. The Business Helping Business group's first full scale promotion was Elf on the Shelf, which ran in the weeks leading up to Christmas. The idea was to get shoppers into the doors of participating businesses and see what they have to offer while at the same time have a bit of fun with a scavenger hunt. ""Anyone who wanted to participate in it was able to participate," said Thompson. "We had people from the mall as well as downtown. It wasn't just certain parts of the community." To help the promotion succeed, businesses who participated agreed to a few general guidelines, one of them being that they would stay open late on Thursday nights. "One of the things we have heard quite often is that we would love to shop in Camrose but the businesses are always closed by the time I get off work," said Thompson. The Business Helping Business group meets over the noon hour the third Wednesday of every month at the Rural Alberta Business Centre office. Meetings are very informal in that there are no minutes taken and no executive structure, just business owners sharing their ideas. The February meeting has been moved to the 13th due to the Design Your Success speaker series. "It's more than a networking group, because we always have an action that we are working towards," explained Rural Alberta Business Centre advisor Louise Jones. "We discussed the Christmas promotion at our last meeting (Jan. 16) and explored some of the things we can work together on in the future." The Business Helping Busi-

ness program is currently looking at ways on how it can get involved with future events. "There are lots of people from out of town who will be coming to various events looking for things to do and places to see or shop," said Jones. "We would like to make their stay here a good experience." One idea is to do something during the time of the Big Valley Parade. "We would like people to stick around downtown after the parade rather than going their separate ways," said Thompson. Initial response from businesses to Business Helping Business has been very positive. "James Cardiff, the owner of Richardson's Jewellery at Duggan Mall, was very excited about the Elf on the Shelf," said Thompson. "He agrees very strongly, like the rest of us, that Camrose needs to promote itself as a whole, rather than through specific organizations." Business Helping Business has established a Facebook group to keep business owners who are not able to attend meetings informed as to what is being planned. It has also created a Twitter account and #ShopCamrose, a facebook page. "Social media is such an effective way to get the message out," said Thompson. "People have Twitter and Facebook on their phones and they are always checking to see if there are any updates. We're hoping the businesses will grab onto that and help us get the message out." Jones feels Business Helping Business has enjoyed success in filling a Camrose void. "Our intent is not to duplicate the work of other organizations and do have overlap but to complement them. We want to bring businesses together to share ideas and work together." More information on Business Helping Business is available from Thompson at 780672-5437 or Kim Turre at 780672-2701.

Physician Attraction and Recruitment Committee continuing to work hard By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Physician Attraction and Retention Committee is hoping its recent success in recruiting new doctors to the community carries over into 2013. "Estimates show we could sustain another five, six or seven family doctors in this community, so I think it is really important that we keep the momentum going," said committee chair and Camrose Primary Care Network executive director Stacey Strilchuk in a presentation to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce Jan. 9. Strilchuk said the two newest doctor recruits, Dr. Adel El Khatib, an obstetrician and gynecologist, and Dr. Balbev Singh, a psychiatrist, fill huge gaps in service. "We worked really hard to recruit a new psychiatrist because we knew Dr. Suna Smith, who has been a psychiatrist here for years, wanted to retire. We also knew we needed a full-time obstetrician/gynecologist. We have a community in which there are more than 300 deliveries a year." Strilchuk noted it is common knowledge that communities which are successful in recruiting and retaining physicians experience more economic benefits than those that are not. "It helps with the creation of jobs and increases the spending that people do. If patients are going outside Camrose and area to find a physician they are going to take their money elsewhere as well. We need to ensure that we have enough family physicians in this community to support the need and access requirements, so that we can keep everyone here." Strilchuk said it is a myth that a physician only worries about money and will go to the community that offers to pay the most. She pointed out that Dr. Singh was presented with a number of opportunities in other communities but chose Camrose, not because of the money but because of the efforts made by the attraction and retention committee to embrace him and his family. "He talked a lot about the support he got when he came to the community in terms of helping him understand what his practice would look like and how his work life balance would be impacted." Strilchuk said the committee is committed to working with all its partners in the doctor recruitment process. "Alberta Health Services has a role to play in recruitment. Alberta Health has a role to play in recruitment. Covenant Health has a role to play in recruitment. But if we are not all playing in the same sand box, often times things can be very messy, and it can be very disappointing, not only for the community but also the physician. If the community doesn't do what it needs to do to embrace that physician and help him/her along the way to get to

this community that is going to be a downfall in the community. Things have to align quite nicely in order for that physician recruit to come." Foreign trained physicians who want to practice in Alberta go through a strict and intensive screening process in which the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons considers his or her credentials, and, based on that, determines whether or not he or she is eligible to practice medicine. "The physician has to be pretty committed and know that he or she wants to come and practice in Alberta. He or she has to fill out a complete application, get all the information translated into English, and send out all their marks and all of his or her marks and transcripts. That can take anywhere from six to eight months." The next step is to find a community in which to practice. "As you can imagine every community in the province is looking to attract a physician and make a case for why a physician should choose it. The prerecruitment visit usually lasts three months. The physician comes to the community, spends time there, talks to the physician group and talks to people who live there while trying to make a decision. If he or she makes the decision to go there then there is the next step. They are foreign trained physicians so they need to obtain a work visa and bring their family here. They also need someone to sponsor them to work in the province. It is not an easy process for either side to make this happen, and there are costs involved for that physician recruit." Once the physician finally arrives in the community, he or she has to learn all the little intricacies and what it means to live in Canada. "They have to determine how they are going to get involved, how they are going to get a house, and where the best place is to get a mortgage," said Strilchuk. "For the committee there is that next step of trying to embrace that physician and (his/her) family into the community." Strilchuk said Camrose is fortunate to have physicians who want to get involved in different aspects of the community in which they live. "The PCN board has five physicians who assist with program development and evaluation, all on their own time. Dr. Ninian has been attached to the Camrose Kodiaks for a number of years, acting as their physician. He may get a small stipend for that but that doesn't make up for the time." Strilchuk explained that while there are currently 30 family physicians who are serving Camrose and Camrose County through the hospital, the Smith Clinic, Gemini Centre and Bashaw, the number of doctors who are accepting new patients is very limited.

Robert Walter Jensen January 9, 1926 – January 12, 2013 Life-long farmer and cattleman, Robert Walter Jensen, formerly of Ferintosh, died peacefully at his residence in Camrose on January 12, 2013. He was 87. Robert, the youngest of four children, was born on the family farm January 9, 1926 to Marie and Andrew Jensen. He spent his formative years working on the farm with his family and within the community. Robert met the love of his life and married Phyllis Irene Bottorff on New Year’s Eve, 1946. Robert and Phyllis experienced life to the fullest, trying their hand at many different lines of work until they found their calling – breeding and showing registered Black Angus cattle. One of the most difficult decisions Robert ever made was to leave the farm. He was a farm boy and that was where he wanted to be. After several years of retirement in Camrose and failing health, Phyllis passed away in 2008. Robert was also predeceased by his parents; brother Harold; and sisters Agnatha and Sylvia. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 26, 2013 at Weber’s Mount Pleasant Chapel with Rev. David Erickson officiating. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Condolences may be made at

In loving memory of

Betty Szott who passed away on January 25, 2011 Our family circle has been broken, A link gone from our chain; But though we’re parted for awhile, We know we’ll meet again. Some day, we know not when, We shall meet in a better land And never part again.

Linda Rosalyne Friesen April 7, 1949 – January 7, 2013 Sadly, Linda’s life here on earth ended tragically in a vehicle accident on Monday, January 7, 2013, at the age of 63. She is now with our heavenly Father, and for this we all rejoice! Linda Rosalyne Friesen (nee Schellenberg) was born on April 7, 1949 in Winkler, Manitoba and, as a child, was raised on a farm in the Amsterdam School District near Rosenfeld. Those were the days when transportation to and from school was by buggy in the summer and by sleigh in the winter. Her high school years were spent in Altona, and later she became a graduate of Millar Memorial Bible Institute in Pambrun, Saskatchewan where she also met the love of her life, Ivan. They were joined in matrimony on September 4, 1971. Linda is survived by Ivan, her loving husband of 41 years; her children Jonathan (Tricia), Cordell (Kara) and Melanie (Matthew Prebble); her beloved grandchildren Owen, William, Mirren, McKenna, Sienna and Annika; her siblings Reynold (Shirley), Elvera, Marlene (Walter Hiebert) and Milton (Lise); sister-in-law Lena Schellenberg; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Henry R. Schellenberg and her mother Anna (nee Braun); sister Laura; and, most recently, her brother John. Linda was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. For many years, she was actively involved in various church ministries in support of Ivan’s pastoral ministry. Churches they served included ministries in Ontario, BC, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Near her retirement years, she took on a challenging job as manager of an independent-living seniors’ residence in Camrose, Alberta. She and Ivan loved to travel and spend time with their family. Linda was an extremely proud mother and grandmother. She will forever be in our hearts, and will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to know her. A funeral service was held on Monday, January 14, 2013 at the Wetaskiwin Mission Church. Memorial donations gratefully accepted to World Vision or to the Samaritan’s Purse.

Robert Walter Jensen January 9, 1926 – January 12, 2013 Life-long farmer and cattleman, Robert Walter Jensen, formerly of Ferintosh, died peacefully at his residence in Camrose on January 12, 2013. He was 87. Robert, the youngest of four children, was born on the family farm January 9, 1926 to Marie and Andrew Jensen. He spent his formative years working on the farm with his family and within the community. Robert met the love of his life and married Phyllis Irene Bottorff on New Year’s Eve, 1946. Robert and Phyllis experienced life to the fullest, trying their hand at many different lines of work until they found their calling – breeding and showing registered Black Angus cattle. One of the most difficult decisions Robert ever made was to leave the farm. He was a farm boy and that was where he wanted to be. After several years of retirement in Camrose and failing health, Phyllis passed away in 2008. Robert was also predeceased by his parents; brother Harold; and sisters Agnatha and Sylvia. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 26, 2013 at Weber’s Mount Pleasant Chapel with Rev. David Erickson officiating.

Ford Fusion features new design By Dan Jensen

The new Ford Fusion at Lamb Ford Sales offers leading fuel efficiency, helpful technolo-

gies and game-changing looks. "Our vision for Fusion was clear – deliver the very best of what One Ford stands for," said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president of Global Product Development. "We brought our global teams together around a blank slate with the charge to develop a midsize car with groundbreaking design and jaw dropping fuel economy – one that featured technologies to help make our customers safer and better drivers. This car is the result." Fusion is available in S, SE and range-topping Titanium models. Fuel efficiency The new Fusion is expected to deliver best-in-class fuel economy across customers' choice of gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid sub-segments, following through with the commitment by Ford to be the fuel-efficiency leader – or among the leaders – with each new model brought to the market. The 1.6 litre EcoBoost is expected to deliver best-in-class four-cylinder nonhybrid fuel efficiency of 9.05 litres per 100 km in the city and 6.36 litres per 100 km on the highway. The 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine – paired with a paddleshifted six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, available 19-inch wheels and tires, and all-wheel drive with the ability to send additional torque to the rear – is the Fusion performance option. Looking out for you The all-new Fusion offers an unprecedented portfolio of driver assistance and convenience technologies based on sensors, cameras and radar that enable the car to see and respond. Fusion can help drivers maintain proper lane position, adjust vehicle speed to changing traffic conditions, identify suitable parking spaces, and help park, even aiding drivers

backing out of parking space where visibility is obstructed. The class-exclusive lane keeping technology consists of three elements to help a driver maintain proper lane position. Using a small, forward-facing camera behind the inside rearview mirror, the system "looks" down the road, monitoring lanes to determine that the car is on course. The system will alert a driver if drowsiness or erratic lane-keeping is detected. The second element warns the driver with a steering wheel vibration if the Fusion drifts too close to lane markings. Finally, lane-keeping aid will actually apply pressure on the steering wheel to help bring the car back into proper lane position. Using forward-looking radar, adaptive cruise control "looks" down the road when activated, slowing the Fusion when slower traffic is detected ahead. Adaptive cruise control enables collision warning with brake support to help slow the car if the potential of a crash is detected. Active park assist can identify a suitable parallel parking space, calculate the trajectory and steer the car to properly position it within the spot. All a driver needs to do is operate accelerator and brake pedals.

The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert uses sensors in both Fusion rear quarter panels to detect traffic in a driver's blind spot, providing both audible and visual warnings if traffic – unseen by the driver – is detected. BLIS technology enables cross-traffic alert, warning the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space with obstructed views, such as between two large vans. The all-new Fusion offers the latest iteration of Ford's award-winning, industry-exclusive SYNC communications and entertainment system, which enables voice-activated communication through a driver's mobile phone and interaction with the car's audio system. Fusion also offers the latest version of MyFord Touch, allowing a driver to interact with vehicle systems through voice control, a touch screen tap or a conventional button. Both SYNC and MyFord Touch – powered by SYNC – help reduce the potential for driver distraction through voicecontrolled functionality, allowing drivers to keep hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Different by design Fusion's sleek profile sets it apart from the powertrain/

cabin.trunk "three-box" designs synonymous with midsize sedans. The character lines sweeping to the rear and thin roof pillars suggest the car is nimble and light on its feet. Fusion demonstrates that a tasteful, well-executed design does not require add-ons or visual clutter. The headlamps, LED taillamps and polished exhaust tips communicate enhanced technological capability. Inside Inside, the new Fusion offers a sporty, driver-oriented environment with next-generation seating that brings expanded functionality. A higher centre console supports the driver-centric theme and yields clever storage for items a driver wants to keep handy. Additional passenger space was designed-in by moving the instrument panel toward the windshield, contributing to the cabin's airy, open environment. Thinner, lighter frames support the comfortable, nextgeneration seats, trimmed with fabric using recycled sustainable yarns. Interior surfaces are softer to the touch, and interior and exterior gaps are minimized, while extra care has been taken to upholster or cover each edge and every surface a

Dan Madison

customer can touch. When the trunk lid is opened, for example, a spring-loaded cover automatically conceals the trunk latch hardware. A driver's car Key contributors to how the Fusion feels are the ride and handling components that maximize vehicle dynamics. The specially tuned electric power-assisted steering, a MacPherson strut front suspension, and an all-new premium-level multilink rear suspension are comparable to Audi and BMW configurations. Interior quiet reaches a new level with acoustic underbody shields and weight-saving sound-absorption material. Both minimize road and powertrain noise while boosting aerodynamic efficiency to help save fuel. You can see the 2013 Ford Fusion at Lamb Ford Sales, 3771-48 Avenue, Camrose.

for the entire family. "This jewel of a hill is nested in the beautiful valley. It was coined Mount Gwynne after our ski patrol team won medals at a competition held in the mountains," explained Shirley Rusin, president of the Wetaskiwin Ski Club. Other ski patrol competitors wondered where this group of talented patrols were from. "They replied Mount Gwynne, the home of the eight second ride. We are â&#x20AC; â&#x20AC;

"We have prizes for best design and fastest toboggans. In March, we have the Slush Pit Event, which is a pit filled with water at the bottom of the hill that patrons try to ski, snowboard or jump across. Usually, most people just get really wet."

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.

Film and Speaker Series returns Sahakarini’s Global Film and Speaker Series returns tonight, Jan. 22, and will run on various evenings until early April. The series is generously funded by the Government of Alberta’s Community Spirit Fund, and all events will be offered free of charge. The first film of the season will be Favela Rising. The winner of 36 international film festival awards, Favela Rising tells the story of families in a notoriously dangerous neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro. In the midst of violence, corruption and drug abuse, the film follows a local leader and teens who are inspired by their newfound love for AfroReggae music to dream of, and work for, a better future for themselves and their community. This film will be screened in the Chapel at Augustana at 7 p.m. on Jan. 22 as part of the Augustana Faculty’s International Week events, all of which are open to the community. The second film of the series will be Dirt on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m., in room C101 at Augustana. The film will be followed by a discussion of the connections between global food production and the work of our local farmers. Dirt – narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis – brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. The theme for the series this year is ‘water water everywhere...but!’ Although some films are more directly connected to water issues than others, each film will highlight ways in which the actions and choices of people around the world and here at home build into waves of social and environmental change. Discussions following each film will remind us how we have a part to play no matter where we are. Sahakarini, established in 1979, is a Camrose-based charity involved in community development projects in Guatemala, India, Kenya and Uganda.

Foreman returns to Vikings' lineup after studies in France

Family • Achievement • Integrity • Respect

It’s nice when you discover the job is as good as the coffee Quality Training Incentive Programs Benefits or Bonus Program

By Murray Green

Taylor Foreman had a tough decision to make. He choose to sit out the first half of the men's basketball season at Augustana in order to pursue his French minor at the university. "It was a good opportunity for me to learn French in France. A second language will help me achieve the credits I need to graduate and will, hopefully, open some doors in the future for me," explained Taylor. "It was a new program this year and I actually applied late, just before the deadline. After a second round of requirements, they picked me to go and I was honoured to receive the opportunity. I almost didn't get my visa in time as well. I'm looking at medicine, physiotherapy or nursing in the future. This will give me tons of options." Lille is a vibrant historical city in the north of France, near the Belgian border – a cultural centre at the crossroads of Europe. The third-year student was accepted to go on an exchange for one term. The faculty of arts at the University of Alberta introduced the new academic program in northern France in collaboration with the Université Catholique de Lille, a long-term University of Alberta partner. "We had a huge variety of student backgrounds, but eight of us were in the same dorm, so we stayed together," he said. Taylor applied and was one of nine students that spent four months studying French. "It was tough to leave my teammates. Some of the players were mad that I left, but it was something I had to do now. I didn't want to miss my fourth year in basketball and it would have been too much during my fourth year classes," added Taylor. "I wasn't going to bail out on my teammates then; I had to do it now." The Vikings went 5-4 without Taylor in the line-up in the first half. "I understand that I am starting fresh halfway through the season. The good part of it is that I have fresh legs and I have no injuries," said Taylor. "However, I also understand that they played well without me and I might not have a spot in the starting line-up. I will play whatever role they ask me to play. The bright side is that I still get to play a half season. The chemistry on the team is really good right now, so I'm not going to mess that up. Maybe my spot is on the bench." Taylor enrolled in some intense courses and then had a break to travel before assum-

He was in a French language immersion term that will allow undergraduate and graduate students to complete up to two years’ worth of language acquisition (12 units of course weight) in four months. These courses were not part of the normal curriculum at Lille and Augustana. With the fall term's accelerated pace of instruction, Taylor was provided with the perfect opportunity to obtain credit for courses that would normally require two years to complete.

"It was a great opportunity to study in France, meet lots of people and do some travelling," said Taylor. "I sacrificed a half a season of basketball, but I would recommend it to anyone." Taylor practiced basketball in France with a club team. "I ran into some funny situations because it was a club team instead of a university team. It was tough to understand at first." Some of the plays in France were different from what Taylor was used to.
