BRAPS members are excited that the Camrose Global Pet Foods franchise is once again directing money to help local rescuers and pet foster homes as a result of their participation in the annual national Show Us Your Heart fund-raising campaign. Now through February 16, when you buy a paper heart for $1.00 each, and have it posted in-store, the money you have paid will be matched. The accumulated amount will be used in our city to pay for veterinarian bills and to help foster homes that take care of the animals until they can be adopted. In addition, at Global Pet Foods Camrose and Wetaskiwin stores you will receive a $10 gift card for a $10 donation. A $5.00 donation gets you 10 bonus Air Miles. BRAPS will also be displaying six to eight cats at Global Pet Foods February 9 and 16 that represent the many kittens and cats the society currently is offering for adoption. Each is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and ready for adoption. For more information email BRAPS at braps@hotmail.ca.

Chamber to have a booth By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Camrose will be sharing a booth during the 2013 Camrose Regional Trade Show at CRE Feb. 15, 16 and 17. "We're going to be answering questions about what the Chamber is all about," said Luke Norrie, chair of the Chamber of Commerce trade show committee. "There are always a lot of people who question what the Chamber does, so this gives an opportunity to discuss member benefits. The Chamber will also be conducting hourly draws for gift certificates and services that have been supplied by its members, giving children an opportunity to get their photos taken on the award-winning Mirror Lake Express train engine that runs on the Mirror Lake Park trail system during the summer months, and providing information about its brand new website. "We will be sharing information on where you can go to view the website and how members can benefit from it," explained Norrie. "We will probably have computers set up next year that will allow visitors to go to the site."

Trade Show will feature good variety By Dan Jensen

The Feb. 15 to 17 Camrose Regional Trade Show, at the Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE), is going to have a fresh new look. "We're going to have a good selection of new exhibitors who haven't been here before, something that always makes it interesting," explained CRE trade show committee chair Dwayne Roth. "There's a few that are local but the majority of them are from out of town. We have some who are coming from as far away as British Columbia and Saskatchewan." Trade show organizers have already sold 85 per cent of the available booths, and aren't expecting the ones that are remaining to last much longer. "We're confident that we will have another sellout," said Roth. The trade show layout typically changes from year to year, depending on the size of the booths that are needed. "Some years we have smaller booths but more exhibitors and some years we have larger booths and the number of exhibitors is down," said Roth. "The ones who come in late usually have a smaller number of booth sizes from which to choose." Thistle Hill Petting Zoo, sponsored by OPT Waste Removal, will provide a chance for children who accompany their parents to the show to get close to the animals. "We've found that the petting zoo has always been a popular attraction," said Roth. "We discontinued the entertainment stage because something like that is very difficult to get set up and operate." The trade show has always received very positive response from shows it has done in the past.

Dorothy Walz receives a show shine from Camrose Trade Show exhibitor Collin Richard. The show is a great place to learn about new products or get to know businesses from Western Canada.

"There are many businesses that make new customer contacts and make sales as a result of the exposure they have gained at the trade show," said Roth. The committee has made many improvements to the show over the years in the form of better atmosphere and lighting, all in an effort to make the show both

fun and productive for anyone who participates. The committee also purchases items from the exhibitors that are put into a basket and raffled at the end of each day. "It's a way of saying thanks to those attend and to those who put their products on display," said Roth. The trade show will operate

from 3 to 9 Friday, 10 to 6 on Saturday, and 10 to 4 on Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children who are 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult. Proceeds from admission are used by the Camrose Regional Exhibition to pay for normal site maintenance and improvement.

Good turnout for presentation on macular degeneration By Dan Jensen

What you see can depend on what you eat. Dr. Yves Sauve, a researcher at the University of Alberta, told a gathering of more than 80 Camrose and area seniors at the Legion Memorial Hall Feb. 29 that kale, dark green vegetables, collards and berries contain high levels of anti-oxidants that can prevent the dry form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or, at the very least, slow its progression to the next level. "Studies have shown that people that eat foods that are rich in anti-oxidants have less of a chance of developing AMD," said Dr. Sauve. The studies have also pointed out that the incidence of AMD is lower among people who eat salmon, which contains high levels of dha, a form of Omega 3. The level of luetein, an anti-oxidant, in the eyes, is directly related to the amount of food with dha that is consumed. "You find that the level of lutein goes down as you get older," said Dr. Sauve. "If you start taking dha the level of lutein goes up." The side effects of gaining dha through the ingestion of salmon can be avoided, said Dr. Sauve, by purchasing bottles of dha capsules, which

Dr. Yves Sauve provided advice on eye health.

cost about $26 at Costco and last for about three months if taken at every meal. "I recommend a dosage of 200 mg of dha and 400 mg of epa three times a day." Age-related macular degeneration is a common problem for those who are 75 years of age or older. One out of 10 people has AMD at the age of 65, a number

that increases to one in four at the age of 75. "People who have it might not see the small details," said Dr. Sauve. "The macula is the region of the eye responsible for the fine details, therefore when you have it, these fine details are lost." AMD typically progresses from the dry form to the wet form in five years.

"With the wet form there starts to be a hole in the centre of the macula, so the lines are not only distorted but in fact they start to disappear," said Dr. Sauve. If the retina is the donut the macula is the timbit that vanishes." Treatments for the wet form of AMD include injections directly into the eye, and laser therapy, which destroys the blood vessels that cause bleeding in the area around the macula. "The people who take dha usually respond better to the injections," said Dr. Sauve. "There are reasons to think that dha can transform itself into another compound that increases the effect of the injection." While dha is effective in most cases, Dr. Sauve said people who are already taking blood thinners should not exceed their daily dosage as it can thin the blood too much. He added that the beneficial effects of dha in food cannot be damaged by the way the food is cooked. "Kale will keep its efficiency if you boil it, bake it or use it to make chips." Dr. Sauve said there is no association between cataract surgery and oncoming macular degeneration, but stressed that smokers are more likely to develop AMD than non-smokers. At the same time, he said

he has seen people who have smoked all their lives and do not have AMD. "AMD is a multi-factorial disease. There are many factors that cause it." Dr. Sauve said those who have wet AMD will see yellowish spots or speckles, which are not to be confused with floaters. "Floaters are not dangerous unless you start to see flashes of light. If you start to see flashes that means you have a detachment." Dr. Sauve said he has heard stories about the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat the wet form of AMD but does not understand how it works. His only explanation was that there can be good and bad byproducts that come from the oxidization of dha. "Hyperbaric treatments are not something we understand scientifically but what matters is that people who have had the treatment have had their vision preserved." Dr. Sauve encourages those who have AMD to wear sunglasses so that strong light does not make their problem worse. He said exercise can boost the immune system and help reduce the chances of developing AMD or other problems. The presentation by Dr. Sauve was sponsored by Service Options for Seniors.

PEN .I am a more empathic hopeless POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Illness increases empathy I have just been isolated for one week because of a gastrointestinal illness. I don’t know if my case was mild, average or severe but I would describe it as brutal. The symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea and never in my whole life had I ever experienced anything as severe as the latter. It was totally incapacitating while it lasted but I had appropriate care and therefore recovered. For that, I am truly thankful. Actually I am much, much more than thankful. The experience has made me a more empathic person. It awakened in me a far more acute awareness of the seriousness of the plight of so many others in the world. What about those who, in addition to diarrhea, also have mental and physical disabilities and/ or are homeless? I am sure they get sick, too; in fact, because of their disabilities and/or homelessness, they are probably more likely to become sick than the rest of us. Who brings them a bowl of hot broth and servings of jello to help them get better? Statistics tell us that many don’t get better; they are among many thousands, including children, who just suffer and painfully die. My recent illness also made me much more aware of the horrible suffering of the multitudes of people in the world who die of diarrhea because they drink contaminated water – not just occasionally but all the time because there is no alternative. Often outbreaks of the illness follow natural disasters like earthquakes and floods and famine, when all care and support systems are likely to be in disarray. In many ways, life does not seem fair. We cannot choose the circumstances into which we are born. Some of us begin life in places of peace, safety, abundance and opportunity; others are born into poverty, disaster and, too often, hopelessness. It behooves those of us who have been richly blessed to help the less fortunate learn to help themselves – by providing them with opportunities to be healthy, literate and skilled in an environment of safety. This involves getting potable drinking water, food production skills, health care, and schools for academic and technical training. Also helpful has been the provision of micro credit which assists those with entrepreneurial abilities to establish their own business enterprises. Creating an environment in which better living conditions can occur involves all sectors of society: governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), private enterprises, charitable organizations, and individuals who voluntarily give of their time and talents. Governments do the bigger projects like building dams to provide potable water and power for utilities. NGOs do smaller projects and often with less red tape and more speed. Even individuals can make a difference – by giving one goat or one chicken or one well or one package of seeds at a time. I did not enjoy being ill but it made me more acutely aware of the misery of those experiencing similar illness in hostile and hopeless environments and that’s a good thing – when it motivates one to give greater attention to helping to alleviate the distress of others, in whatever way possible.

Museum Mandate On behalf of the staff, volunteers, patrons and members of the Camrose and District Centennial Museum, I would like to thank City council for their generous financial support for the upcoming season. As everyone knows, it is very much a time of austerity, not just locally, but all around the world, so receiving funding from local governments reinforces the importance of the museum's mandate in our com-

munity, not only as a venue for events such as Canada Day and Founders' Days, but as an institution for preserving the physical history of Camrose and the surrounding area. In hearing the statistics on how quickly languages and traditional ways of life are disappearing around the world, some people lament the loss of human diversity, while others simply say, "That's progress." I have, however, noticed that those who dismiss the extinction of certain cultures as a result of progress are generally the ones who are actually the most concerned about our own western Canadian heritage gradually being altered by the forces of globalization. In the

age of the internet and jet liners, where in the span of only a few years we moved from everyone having a cell phone to everyone having a smart phone, it seems to be inevitable that even Canadian culture is destined to be assimilated into a more homogenous and metropolitan global culture. Like it or not, we are all making the move away from Camrose to the so-called "Global Village." I hope that you'll come back to visit us often at the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. We'll be open for the summer starting on the May long weekend. Will Voth, president, Camrose and District Centennial Museum Society

Live by the gun, die by the gun The recent killing spree in a Connecticut elementary school, which killed twenty-six people, mostly children, has caused a tremendous uproar in the United States as politicians, law makers, educators, community leaders and concerned citizens attempt to understand why such horrific shootings occur so frequently within their borders. Sometimes it takes a dramatic event to motivate people to scrutinize existing social conditions and arrangements and implement new policies and strategies that create positive social change. In the examination of contributing factors, no rock should be left unturned. As such, the examination of the role of violent movies, video games and music should be taken seriously. It is important to remember, however, that the vilification of such “folk devils” is not new. In the 1950s the culprit behind youth deviance was comic books and the climbing youth crime in the 1980s was attributed to either video games or role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, the latter being accused of luring children into Satanism. And of course, ever since Charles Manson professed his love for the Beatle’s Helter Skelter, many a youth suicide, murder or school shooting has been attributed to popular music, usually heavy metal music, although in recent years hip-hop has been singled out. Much of the reliable research demonstrates that for most people, watching violence, listening to violence, and/or playing violent video games, does not increase the likelihood that they will commit actual violence. They might show more signs of aggressiveness, but there is no lethal link for the average person. Of course, there are those rare individuals who are socially isolated, have experienced abuse and neglect, and suffer from mental disorders for whom such activities will increase their propensity for violence. But most other people are able to distinguish between real violence and fictitious violence and understand that the consequences of real violence are monumental and irreversible. Most of us have been socialized from an early age not to harm, let alone kill others. If there was a general cause and effect relationship between violent music, games,

and movies and actual violent behaviour, then, given the huge numbers of people who entertain themselves with these products, we would expect to see much more violence in society than there actually is. Indeed, the streets would be awash in blood. But despite the wide-spread prevalence of violent entertainment in North America, crime rates continue to fall. Similarly, if there was such a correlation found in American society, then we would need to explain cultural variations. Canada and Japan have

Second Thought

just as much violent media as the United States, but much lower rates of violent crime. When trying to explain why shooting sprees seem to occur more frequently in the United States than elsewhere, some scholars have looked to culture and history. The United States is a nation-state born from conquest and violent conflict. From the colonization and near genocide of aboriginal populations, to the violent revolutionary secession from the British Empire, to the bloody Civil War over slavery and State sovereignty, to expansionist and aggressive government policies such as Manifest Destiny, the containment wars against Communism, and the wars against Terrorism, violence has been one of the trademarks of US domestic and foreign policy. Yet other countries have similar historical experiences and yet much less violent gun-related crime. What the international evidence does show is that countries with high levels of social violence,

particularly gun related homicide, tend to be characterized by poverty, social inequality and weak social cohesion. When only developed, modernized countries are examined what is telling is the link between high levels of gun ownership and gun related violence. Economically developed countries with more firearms have more homicides. And no developed country has higher levels of gun ownership than the United States which also records close to 1,000 firearm homicides every month. The ever-resourceful National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, not to mention the U.S. firearms industry, which spends millions on advertising guns to children as young as 10 years of age, have worked hard to create a robust, yet weakly-regulated gun culture and ensure high levels of gun ownership across the United States. And we’re not just talking about hunting rifles and pistols for the firing range. We’re talking about assault weapons with extended magazines. We are also talking about laws in some States that allow citizens to carry concealed weapons and “Stand Your Ground” laws that allow people to use deadly force if they believe their lives are in danger. Most research suggests that these States record more gun-related deaths than those without such laws. Meanwhile, States with stricter gun control laws have fewer gun-related deaths. If more guns mean less crime, then why is the United States not the safest place in the world, with nearly 300 million guns? 1. Scapegoating violent media misdirects attention from the real culprit; a weakly regulated gun culture promoted and fostered by an economically powerful gun industry and politically influential interest group. Until this type of gun culture is addressed and properly regulated, gun-related deaths will continue. 2. Perhaps the best explanation for the prevalence of gun related deaths in the United States is one that recognizes the unique confluence of contributing factors; it is no surprise that a country with a bloody history of internal conflict, a hawkish foreign policy and an overzealous unregulated gun culture reinforced and glorified by violent media is prone to so many gun related deaths.

Some signs of dental problems are unmistakable, including bad breath or the build-up of a yellow film on the teeth. If your animal swallows food without chewing, it is very likely to be suffering from a dangerous accumulation of tartar on the teeth. Prevention is always the best method. Animals need to have their teeth brushed regularly, just like us. It is imperative to accustom them to having their teeth and gums handled by the age of two months so teeth brushing will be a breeze when they are adults.

Grooming for all breeds

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE

Pet owners can tend to be more concerned about the outward appearance of their animals while ignoring other subtler signs of poor health. For example, a dog with a soft, silky coat gives the impression of being in perfect health, but it may be suffering from damaging dental bacteria. February’s Pet Dental Health Month is a great opportunity to raise pet owners’ awareness of this subject. Some research studies have shown surprising data that demonstrate a link between dental health and the health of the body’s major organs. That is, bacterial accumulation in the mouth of an animal can cause dental health problems. Some factors predispose an animal to periodontal health problems: canine breeds with flat noses or an animal that mainly breathes through its mouth.

Truly Madly Deeply at Faith and Life Feb. 12 What do 50 Shades of Grey, the Augustana Vocal Department and Valentine’s Day have in common? You are invited to come to the vocal department’s performance of Truly Madly Deeply to find out. The first half of the show presents a drama in which six aging women from the DoRe-Mi-Fa-Sol-La book club (in reality all students of vocal performance in Professor Kathleen Corcoran’s studio) will collectively ponder and pine, cajole and reflect: they must find clarity on this elusive love. The boundaries of traditional art song presentation will be shattered as songs of Purcell, Britten, Copland, Bernstein, and others inspire and enrich the drama. The second half of the show features our students of today as stars of tomorrow, along with Roger Admiral (pianist) in a fully-frocked presentation of exquisite solo arias from Figaro, Mefistofeles, Rigoletto, Bartered Bride, Boheme and more. This evening promises some surprises, laughter, poignancy and sophistication as a musical presentation of love in song and aria just in time for Valentine’s Day. You are invited to this special event beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12, in the Augustana Faith and Life Chapel – a cultured and entertaining Valentine date idea! Tickets are available at the door. For further information, call the Augustana music office at 780-679-1532.

Raymond is a great Canadian musician and he encourages his loyal fans to throw money. But, it can't be spare change or unwanted coins. He accepts only Canadian Tire money. You can be part of the celebration in Camrose as he counts his Paper Nickels at Scalliwags. Now gather in close music friends and we will let Corin tell you about his recent project. "That’s it in my hands, weighing in at 0.7 lbs, containing 144 pages, 57 pictures. The words and chords to 20 songs. The stories of where I found those songs and my experience of the artists who wrote them. The tale of the Tire Caper, in all its multi-coloured glory," said Corin. "This isn’t an album package – it’s the world’s first coffee table CD." Corin decided to create an album full of flesh and heart tones and laughter. It’s soul food. Not just live music, but living music. "I wanted to showcase the best songs and writers from the country for everyone to share. Two of the writers are from Alberta. "This is gold that everyone can enjoy. This is a Canadian document. I want people to look at this years later and think of it as a window of the country." Corin collected songs and material from 17 of his friends across Canada (one from Australia too) to make a new album. The problem is that he didn't have enough money to pay for studio time. "The bill from The Rogue Music Lab is $7,333.75. The current total of Tire money I’ve collected since the "Caper" began is more than $6,400. Which means

Corin Raymond will be singing for Canadian Tire money in Camrose.

we need roughly $900 to pull this Caper off completely and forever. I know we can do it." His idea for the project was started in Winnipeg, but he received his first Canadian Tire money in Alberta (Medicine Hat). It's only fitting that his dream of paying the entire recording bill with Canadian Tire money will be realized in Alberta. Knowing that Camrose has a love for

music and helping people, history should happen on Saturday. Bring your tam-wearing, wax-mustachioed mug of Sandy McTire, the fictional mascot found on every bill of Canadian Tire money, to the show to be a part of the national project. "When I hit $6,137.70 in Canadian Tire money, it consisted of 31,079 bills, and weighed 62 pounds. Since then, I have received more than $300, mostly

one paper nickel at a time, hence the name for the CD, Paper Nickels," added Corin. The artist will be making stops in Medicine Hat and Calgary before going to Camrose and Edmonton. If he is going to reach his lofty goal, why not do it in our city. "I made my first dollar in Alberta. The 15 cents that’s been languishing in the back of your glove compartment could make the difference," laughed Corin. "The Caper was started in Alberta and I feel really good about coming back to the province with the collection of songs and sharing them with the people who supported me. I came home with $22 in Canadian Tire money and it went from there. If you have ever collected Canadian Tire money, you know that can be a big stack in a hurry." "I didn't know anything about the studio accepting Canadian Tire at this point," recalled Corin. "At first, I thought of going to this bar that accepts Canadian Tire money at par and buying people a round. Then every show that I did, people started bringing me Canadian Tire money and the idea to fund the CD was born, five cents at a time." Let's not lose track of the music. The folk musician was asked to join the Rose City Roots Music Society concert series because he is a talented musician already. Corin is a young man writing old songs — not songs written deliberately in an old style, but songs that sound like they’ve been around a lot longer than Corin himself. He has been compared to Valdy, who will be at the Bailey Theatre on July 13. "We both like to write and sing our songs and be storytellers through our music," said Corin. "I like storytelling and that's what drew me to folk music. It has endless storytelling possibilities. In fact. I had an entire tour called Book-

worm and it was totally storytelling with no music." After two successful solo albums Record Lonesome Night (2005) and the United States Folk charting number five album There Will Always Be A Small Time (2009) Corin turned to the recent project. He also recorded three releases with his former band, The Undesirables. Paper Nickels reveals a variety of Canadian songwriters comprised of covers by their peers. "This campaign began in late 2011 with a song called “Don’t Spend It Honey,” and has continued via his website dontspendithoney.com," explained Corin. “We wrote the song that mentioned the Canadian Tire money in it, and we knew that it was a fun song. As soon I started playing it, people started reacting to it and giving me Canadian Tire money." Although he’s still approximately $900 short of the $7,333.75 bill from Toronto’s Rogue Music Lab, which accepts Canadian Tire money at par and covered the recording, the editing and the mixing costs, Raymond said the experience has been invaluable. “The love and the excitement and the delight and the laughter that people have gotten out of this, proportionate to the amount of money it actually is, you can’t tabulate that,” he notes. That’s what amazes me the most – that people had so much fun with this.” Corin indicated he loves playing in small venues to get a connection with the audience. "I'm looking forward to playing Camrose and hopefully we can pull off the Caper at Scalliwags." If he surpasses his goal, any additional coupons will be put towards his future recordings. “Any Canadian Tire money I receive gets turned into art,” Raymond promised. “I’m not buying plastic floor mats or any basketballs with it.”

Fish and Game hold annual scoring day Submitted by Stan Trautman

The Camrose and District Fish and Game Association held its annual horn scoring competition at the Camrose Golf Course on Jan. 4. Approximately 40 heads were scored by four scores and judges. Later, a delicious meal was served. Marin Despas scored a 17 7/16 for black bear. Nolan Sand scored a 162 on a typical whitetail deer. Keith Kennedy had a score of 157 7/8 on a non-typical whitetail deer. Odean Trautman scored a 173 7/8 on a typical mule deer and Ryan Erickson had a measure of 206 4/8 on a non-typical mule deer. Doug Erickson recorded the top elk with a 245 5/8, while Clint Taylor reached 149 4/8 on a moose. Auslin Dublilz had a goose weight 5.575 kg and Ron Foshaug turned in a duck that weighed 1.709 kg. Clint Taylor was best in archery and Norman Berglund pulled in a 4 lb.-7 oz. whitefish. Winners in the ladies' category were Tracy Erickson and Shane Lewis, whitetail deer, and Daniel Busenius, black bear. Advancing to the provincial competition were the black bear, the non-typical whitetail deer, and typical mule deer.

Four years in the Land of the Rising Sun By Glen Ogden

It has been around four years since I first came to Japan. So far I have loved it here. Looking back at the past four years makes me appreciate all of the opportunities that I have had in life, all of the challenges, all of the joy and happiness, and all of the struggles that I have had here. I first came here in mid July 2009. I graduated from Augustana University with a degree in Globalization and Development, I had a love to travel and I was eager to get paid to do what I love. I found out about a teaching job in Japan and instantly knew that is where I was meant to be. I applied for the job and the next thing I knew I was getting ready to teach English in Japan. I came here with only as much Japanese as I learned from watching the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” from when I was a kid; I didn't even know the basics like “Yes,” “No,”

or “Where is the bathroom?” but that didn't stop me from coming here. I was nervous, anxious, and I will admit, I was a bit scared to leave Canada for what I thought was going to be only two years. The first year was the most difficult for me. When I first came there were welcoming drinking parties for the first month or so, but after that it seemed like Japan turned into a lonely place for the only native English speaker in town. My Japanese level was next to zero, so even during the welcome parties I was an outsider sitting there lost in a language that I couldn't understand, but there were enough people with basic English that helped me tremendously so I didn't feel completely lost. There are lots of people in Japan who have English language skills, better than they would like to admit, but the problem is that Japanese people are very shy. It takes a long time

for them to open up, especially in English. The biggest problem is they are afraid of making a mistake so they are afraid to speak. After they get to know you for a while, they are not as afraid of making mistakes and more concerned about expressing their ideas in the form of communication. The biggest problem with Canadians coming to Japan is that we come from a culture where it is relatively easy to communicate, even with strangers, after all that is how you meet new people. When we come to Japan we don't understand the cultural differences and the shyness of the people here. It took at least half a year before I could really start to make connections with people in my town. I have joined a Youth Volunteer Group, I was the first Assistant English Teacher (ALT) to go to the school sports festivals, I have joined a mini-volleyball team here, and I try to get

involved with the community when I can. I have been accepted by the town, accepted into the hearts of the people that I am surrounded by, and accepted by the children to the point where whenever they see me it is like seeing a celebrity or Santa Claus in a mall. The people here are simply amazing, but in order to find this out you have to make an effort to be part of the community, make an effort to meet people, and you have to be patient because the culture here is different from the one we are used to and it takes longer for people to open up to strangers. When I leave Japan I will miss the food, the onsens (hot springs), the snowboarding (lots and lots of fresh powder), and I will miss the recycle shops, but most of all I will miss the people. If you come here with an open mind and a willingness to experience a new culture, you will love the people the most too.

Autust 30, 1927 – February 8, 2008 Forever in our hearts in a very special place No words we speak can ever say, how much we miss you every day Sadly missed, never forgotten, always loved Love your wife, Ruth and family In loving memory of

Martin Jordan who passed away on February 8, 2002 It is sad to walk the road alone Instead of side by side, But to all there comes a moment When the ways of life divide. You gave us years of happiness Then came sorrow and tears, But you left us beautiful memories We will treasure through the years. Forever in our hearts with love, Josie and family

Their friends Garrad, Manny, Kristen, Mark and Reid became like extended family. At times, her home would be filled with teenagers.

Bailey Theatre offers great music

The Mokry Blues Project had to postpone the Jan. 26 concert at the Bailey Theatre to Tuesday, Feb. 5. Band members Aaron Mokry, Brad Mokry, Tanner Neff and Curtis Mokry are eager for tonight's Bluesday at The Bailey. The Mokry brothers turned a love of music into a passion for entertaining on stage. They have quickly refined the sounds of their high school days to a mature blend of historic blues with this band. The Camrose boys have reached the level of standing as a solo act, and you won't be disappointed. The Mokry brothers have been jamming together ever since they picked up their respective instruments. They have all been featured in numerous events the past few years in a variety of different groups, as well as together. Winners of the 2010 Martha's Music Battle of the Bands, this band continues to improve.

The development of a business plan will be at the top of the Bailey Theatre Society agenda in 2013. "That is one thing that is absolutely necessary," said Bailey Theatre Society president Judy McLean at the Society's annual general meeting last week. "Having a business plan is crucial to the management and operational team. Without that they have no vision and purpose and without it they are unable to form a budget." McLean said a business plan is something the Bailey Theatre Society should have had years ago. "We did have a construction plan but there was nothing to guide us once the theatre was open. Quite honestly, if we had that business plan at the onset we may have had better communication with the City. Corporate donors will always want to see a business plan. We have been reacting for too long and we need to start acting. That is going to take some work." McLean said the Bailey has come a long way over the past year, thanks to the efforts of dedicated staff and board members. "There was much work done in the marketing area; we created a strategic plan and we designed fund-raising and marketing brochures that will be more than helpful in securing funds in the future. City councillors told me the presentations were the most professional ever seen." McLean noted in her written report that even though there is still hope that the Bailey and CPAC will be able to benefit from future synergies, there seems to be little hope for funding in the near future. "I was convinced that the municipal government would see our plight and recognize the value of the Bailey Theatre to the City of Camrose and its residents with assistance of funding. To this end we made several appeals to Camrose City council and also to the Camrose County board." Turning back again to the positive, McLean said the Bailey has become the community performing arts centre, providing consistently good musical entertainment, drama presentations, festivals, classic movies and a gathering place. "The Bailey has begun to attract patrons from central Alberta as well as local citizens, and provides a major boost for economic growth in Camrose. Performers have publicly and consistently praised the Bailey for its historic value, excellent acoustics, ambiance and the Bailey production team." Bailey Theatre Society secretary Carole-May Coty reported that the Bailey Theatre Society received a $75,000 Community Facility Enhancement Program grant from the

provincial government January 28 to put towards debt reduction. "We had hoped for $300,000 but we are grateful for what we did receive and it is in the bank," said Coty. Bailey Theatre Society member David Roth said the Bailey will be making another application to the provincial government for debt reduction, and is currently working on a plan to convince 40 supporters to write promissory notes of $4,000 each that could be presented to the bank as security against the mortgage that currently totals $525,000. The hope is those promissory notes will free up $200,000 in matching funds from Society benefactor Frank McInnis. "That would give us an extra eight months of operations, through to the end of the year, and give us some breathing time to get other fund-raising projects going," said Roth. "We are not sure that the bank will accept 40 pieces of paper. Everyone I have talked to has said they would provide a note for $4,000." Bailey Theatre Society manager Tracey Clark said while the Bailey Theatre attracted several great shows in 2012 and developed partnerships with several local groups, it continues to struggle with the operating budget and the ability to put "bums in the seats." "Our current sponsored advertising schedule allows us one ad per paper per month. We are learning what works and what won't work well for this facility and the community. The mandate of any theatre is to provide arts and culture, but unfortunately this doesn't always equal a profit. We are constantly being provided with ideas for productions or events we should hold here. Unfortunately, not all of them are possible, but we try to do our best to listen and be diverse." McLean said the Bailey is in the process of developing a "Friends of the Bailey Folder" that will outline levels of smaller donations for under $1,000, and has planned a number of fundraising events, including a dance cabaret night with Godfrey Black in April, a celebrity golf tournament in July, and a silent auction during the trade show at Big Valley Jamboree. "That is apparently a very good fund-raiser. The people who have done it, like St. Mary's Hospital, have raised up to $50,000, so we can do it if we work at it." Members of the Bailey Theatre Society board of directors for 2013 are: Rick Johnson, Bill Walker, Marion Williams, David Francoeur, Kimberley Hann, Judy McLean (past president), Carole-May Coty, Doug Ezeard, Barbara Nixon, Jeremy Mouat and Tracey Clark.

Bantam Cubs move on to next hockey round By Murray Green The Camrose Cubs bantam girls' hockey team eliminated the Viking Gas Kings in provincial playdowns with 5-1 and 3-1 victories. Jillian MacWilliam scored two goals and added an assist to lead the Cubs in the second game in the EnCana Arena on Jan. 27. Brooke Broughton chipped in with a single tally and an assist in support. In Viking, the Cubs received scoring from five different players. Rachel Webster, MacWilliam, Mackenzie Pilger, Halley Hay and Broughton garnered the goals, while Ashlyn White added three assists. Ocean Selby was in goal for Camrose in both games. The win earned Camrose a meeting with Sherwood Park in the next round. The Cubs have been playing numerous exhibition games with more competitive teams and A division teams this year to prepare for the B female playdowns and provincials. Camrose is unbeaten in 16 games in North Central Minor Hockey Association play and are 10-2-3 against some tougher opponents. The winner of the Sherwood Park - Camrose series advances to the provincial tournament in Cold Lake on March 14 to 17.

The Camrose/Viking Grizzlies midget girls and the peewee Icecats will be hosting provincials on March 21 to 24. The midget games will be played in Viking and the peewee games will be played in Camrose. The Camrose/Viking Grizzlies are currently tied for third place in the East Central Female Hockey Association with a similar 8-4-2 record as the Sedgewick/Killam squad. Irma and Lloydminster hold the top two positions. The Icecats hold onto first place in the North Central Minor Hockey Association female peewee division with a 10-2 record. Both Stettler and Warburg are one point back. Camrose Pandas atom team sits in third place, one point back from second and two points out of first place. The Fort Fury and Leduc are within reach of the Pandas. Camrose is playing Wainwright in provincial playdowns. The female program in Camrose is strong and the numbers indicated they could have formed a novice team as well. However, without a league to play in, the players were integrated with boys in the local league.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Brooke Broughton of the Camrose Cubs rounds the net against the Viking Gas Kings in the EnCana.

Nordlys Film & Arts Festival at Bailey Feb. 15-17 From February 15 to 17 the 4th annual Nordlys Film and Arts Festival will take place at the historic Bailey Theatre on main street Camrose. Nordlys (which means “northern lights” in Norwegian) will feature a full weekend of award-winning films, local music and headliner entertainment. “This is shaping up to be an exciting year,” says Society president, Hans Olson. “We’re building on a strong foundation and thinking big in terms of highlighting special guests throughout the weekend.”

Toronto musician Rita Chiarelli, who has been referred to as “Canada’s Queen of the Blues,” will be bringing her power-house music to the Bailey stage. With a Juno award and four subsequent Juno nominations, Chiarelli’s live concert will provide Saturday’s line-up with a dose of high energy. Chiarelli’s music so captivated filmmaker Bruce McDonald that he made a documentary of her visit to a Louisiana penitentiary and the birth-place of the blues. The 2010 film, Music from the Big House, will screen before the concert.

The Nordlys schedule also includes an eclectic mix of firstrate films from Alberta, Canada and around the world. Friday night will feature a screening of Magnetic Reconnection by Edmonton director, Kyle Armstrong. The short film, which includes stunning images of the aurora borealis, recently received its world premiere at AFI Fest in Hollywood. “We’re pleased that this year’s line-up includes three of the five films that were finalists for an Oscar in last year’s Best Foreign Language Film category,” says Randy Kohan of the Nor-

dlys board. “And we’re especially delighted that one of those films, Monsieur Lazhar, from Quebec, will be a part of our exciting opening night festivities.” The Bailey Theatre, which was originally a vaudeville theatre and dance hall, will provide an intimate setting for the festival. The Bailey opened its doors in 1911 and is the oldest theatre of its kind in Alberta. After undergoing extensive renovations in recent years, it has transformed into a beautiful, multi-use facility with vintage charm. The Nordlys Film and Arts

Festival is made possible by the generous support of sponsors and community partners. Media Sponsors include the Camrose Canadian and CKUA. Gold Sponsors include the Government of Alberta and Country Garden Liquor Store. Weekend passes, which include Rita Chiarelli’s concert, are on sale now for only $50 at the Bailey Theatre box office (www.baileytheatre.com). Day passes will be available at the door.

Battle River Credit Union continues strong performance By Dan Jensen

Battle River Credit Union made its third highest common share payout to members in 2012. A report presented at the organization's annual general meeting Jan 30 showed that BRCU returned 26.2 per cent of all interest paid on loans or earned on deposits. The total income at the end of the fiscal year, Oct. 31, 2012, before ProfitShare and income taxes, stood at $11,036,000. "In an unstable economy, BRCU has continued to perform in the top five credit unions in Canada," explained BRCU chief executive officer Steve Friend. Battle Rover Credit Union has the highest reserves of any Credit Union in Alberta. The return on assets for the year was 1.9 per cent. As of Oct. 31, 2012, assets stood at $579,270,000 up from $533,763,000 at the end of October, 2011. "Thanks to your loyalty and support, and the hard work of management and staff, we continue to go from strength to strength," said BRCU president Alan Fielding. BRCU's consistent goal is to be efficient in the ways it operates and at the same time provide excellent financial products and services. "Fortunately our board, management and staff are all working together to attain our goals," said Fielding. "We operate in a collaborative manner where all are treated fairly and respectfully, and we truly believe that our strong financial performance is the result." BRCU member loans at the end of October, 2012, totalled $442,124,000, up from $414,483,000 the year before. Member deposits and accrued interest at the end of October, 2012, totalled $498,396,000, up from $458,754,000 the year before. Audit and finance committee chair Ron Pilger assured members that their hard-earned money is ultra-safe when on deposit with Battle River Credit Union. He noted that risk assessment is far more sophisticated than ever before, with fearless bold predictions giving way to sophisticated software generated reports with hundreds of potential interest rate scenarios, and that policies are constantly being reviewed to keep deposits safe from fraud and money laundering schemes.

"Everything we have in place is designed with member protection in mind." BRCU continues to invest in and develop technologies, processes and people. In November of 2012 it launched e-Transfers (e-mail money transfer), which enables members to send and receive money via e-mail. The year before it launched a Member Direct integrated website, which incorporated online banking functionality. Members can access their accounts 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a variety of unique and innovative products and services. BRCU presented $8,000 in scholarships during the 20112012 school year to students at the Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta, Camrose Composite High School, Stettler Composite High School, Central High School (Sedgewick, Killam, Alliance), Viking School, Vegreville Composite High School, St. Mary's High School (Vegreville), Daysland School and Gus Wetter School (Castor). The third Terry Kelly Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,500 was presented to Stephanie King, granddaughter of Liz Kelndorfer, office supervisor at the City Center branch in Camrose. The scholarship is based on academic achievement and community involvement. BRCU presented $10,000 to the Battle River Community Foundation in October, 2012, in honour of Alan Fielding, who has been a member of the BRCU board of directors since 1980 and chair of the board since 1989. BRCU has evolved over the last 62 years from one branch in Camrose with assets of $178 serving 21 members to 11 branches serving 17,000 members in the Battle River region. The mission of BRCU is to provide banking, investment and insurance products in both rural and urban areas, and to support its member owners daily through exceptional service, competitive rates, community support and local profit sharing. Members of the executive management team are Mickey Mohan, vice president, operations; Bruce Weinkauf, vice president, operations; Steve Friend, chief executive officer; and Joe Mohan, vice president, operations.

CMHA WINNERS Canadian Mental Health Association conducted a quilt and afghan raffle in 2012 to raise money for programs it offers. Heather Hillis won the first prize of a Quilting from the Heart donated quilt being held above by Colleen Vennard (right), Norm Felgate won second prize of a quilt made by Nettie Gerber (left) and Larry Oppen won third prize of an afghan made by Marge Flad (centre). Doreen Kuefler won the fourth prize of a tablecloth, also being held by Flad.

Athletes prepare for Winter Games By Murray Green

Camrose and area athletes have already qualified for the Alberta 55 Plus Winter Games in Calgary, Feb. 13 to 16. The athletes will be representing Zone 4, which covers most of Central Alberta. "Zone 4 is sending 145 competitors to Calgary. We expect over 1,100 athletes to attend from across the province," said Rose Snopek, Zone 4 publicity director from Camrose. Ray Heck will be joining the over 70 hockey teams and is no stranger to participating in Summer or Winter Games. "This will be the third time in hockey for me. I've also been at the Games for six times in slowpitch," recalled Ray. "It's funny how this one started. Red Deer entered a hockey team. There were enough guys from the surrounding Red Deer area who wanted to try out, but Red Deer wanted to enter as a team. So people started to phone around to put together a challenge team," explained Ray. Only one team from Zone 4 can go to the Games, so a playoff was held. "We have players from all around, including three of us from Camrose. We played Red

Deer in Penhold and beat them, so we get to go to the Games and they get to stay home," Ray chuckled. "These guys in Red Deer played together for a number of years, so naturally they didn't want to break up their club. The same thing has happened in slowpitch." The talent from an all-star team proved to be too much for the club team. "Each zone has its own competition to determine which team advances," said Ray. "Our Camrose players practice every Thursday here in Camrose and on Tuesdays we go to Sherwood Park. Playing hockey gives us something to do. You have to stay in shape to live a healthy life." With only three players over 70 still active in games, Camrose draws others from farther away. We have players here on Thursdays from Lougheed, Sedgewick, Heisler, Forestburg and all the way out west to Buck Lake," said Ray. "I never started playing hockey until I went to high school in Provost at 15. Then I went to Camrose because they had a junior team here. I played for the Maroons and then I was a referee for 18 years. Back then we didn't get paid by minor hockey. We vol-

unteered and didn't even think about getting paid. It was part of giving back." Ray grew up playing hockey and baseball. "I remember we had to all work first before we could play. We had to shovel off the ice. The older players would play and the younger ones would watch," said Ray. "I remember my first time to join the older players. I was six years old and they needed a goalie. They said stop what you can and gave me a shovel for a goalie stick, and away I went. Well, the puck hit the shovel and it went up and hit my forehead hard and that was the end. I never played goal again," joked Ray. "That's all we had in the winter was hockey and everyone played. The old guys, all they did was play cards in those days. They thought they didn't need exercise, but that isn't right either. If I didn't play hockey then I would need to go walking more to receive exercise. In the summer, I golf three times a week or play ball. Last year, I hurt my shoulder, so didn't play ball. I intend to play ball again this year. The Summer Games are in Barrhead and Westlock this year." Continued on page 36

Chev Trax Great performance in a small package

By Dan Jensen

The new Chevrolet Trax has arrived at McClellan Wheaton Buick GMC in Camrose. Trax provides Chevrolet an entry into a growing small SUV segment and delivers the flexibility, great fuel economy and car-like handling that urban explorers around the world require. "Trax is an important addition to the Chevrolet portfolio in Canada," said Marc Comeau, vice president of sales, service and marketing for Chevrolet in Canada. "We believe Trax will be a popular choice with Canadians looking for the convenience and utility offered by a small SUV, which will be ideal to drive in urban centres and cities across Canada." Standard EcoTec engine With a standard 1.4 litre turbocharged ECOTEC engine, Trax gets you around and about the streets with full authority. Its output is a spirited 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. So what is the advantage of turbocharging? It directs substantially more air into each cylinder, enabling it to optimize each combustion cycle, while an intercooler cools the charged air entering the engine, allowing for more complete combustion and greater power output. Yet unlike many

other turbocharged engines, the ECOTEC runs on regular fuel. Turbocharging not only increases output, it also makes Trax remarkably fuel efficient, with 7.8 litres per 100 km city and 5.7 litres per 100 km highway ratings. Maximum grip Trax's confident handling is the product of a wide stance and a series of driver control technologies that include standard StabiliTrak four-wheel ABS with Panic Brake Assist and Hill Hold Assist. An available on-demand All-Wheel Drive system automatically adapts to changing road con-

ditions, improving traction by sending power to the wheels with the most grip. The system reverts to front-wheel drive mode, improving fuel efficiency, when the added traction isn't required. That helps Trax earn its place as one of the most fuel efficient AWD vehicles on the road. Plenty of storage Trax has conveniently located storage areas within easy reach of the driver, including one in the middle of the instrument panel. When it comes time to move serious cargo, you'll find it easy to reconfigure the interior, thanks to the 60/40 flipand-fold rear seat and fold-flat front passenger seat. With the rear seat folded down, Trax opens up a generous 1,371 litres of maximum cargo space. Keeping you entertained If you think of music as an essential part of driving, you'll find Trax has all your favourite tracks. All LT and LTZ models feature a standard CD player, MP3 playback and Bluetooth audio streaming. Choose the available Chevrolet MyLinkTM1 interactive sound system and you can access your music and apps – such as Stitcher SmartRadio – directly from your smartphone. A 178 mm colour touch radio screen acts as the hub, although you can also use

steering-wheel-mounted controls to make selections. For the ultimate Trax listening experience, choose the available Premium Bose six-speaker sound system that includes an amplifier. The city landscape has its own share of hazards. So you should take comfort in the knowledge that Trax includes 10 standard airbags – the most in its class 4. Count 'em: dual stage front airbags, knee airbags, and side-impact seatmounted airbags for the driver and front passenger, plus sideimpact seat-mounted outboard rear seat airbags and head curtain side airbags for outboard seating positions. Add the peace of mind that accompanies the standard OnStar system that includes six months of the Directions & Connections Plan with Turn-by-Turn Navigation and RemoteLink. Also included is Automatic Crash Response that can automatically contact an OnStar advisor when a collision occurs to help direct emergency service providers to your exact location. Impressive warranty Driving worry-free is key to fully enjoying the pleasures of owning a new Chevrolet. Whether it’s zipping across town or taking on a monumental road trip, you can set off knowing that every new

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC Chevrolet is covered a new vehicle limited warranty, GM Roadside Assistance and courtesy transportation. And for even greater peace of mind and coverage, Chevrolet also offers several available Protection Plans designed to suit your own driving needs. Trax adds to an already impressive Chevrolet portfolio in Canada, including the award-winning Cruze and recently launched, city-friendly Sonic compact car and versatile Orlando small crossover. See the 2013 Chevrolet Trax at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 385048 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Learning all about elder abuse

A training event on elder abuse identification and intervention workshop, hosted by the Camrose and Area Family Response Council and facilitated by Community Initiatives Against Family Violence, was held at the Community Centre Jan. 24. The event introduced tools and materials that were developed in Camrose to respond to the unique needs and concerns of Camrose and area seniors. Among the 28 participants were: (left to right, front) Nicole Bannick, Camrose Public Library; Shawna Bissel, Community Initiatives Against Family Violence facilitator; Sheralyn Dobos, Family Violence Response Council chair; Shelley Heck, Camrose Mental Health; (second row, left to right) Michele Ball, CIBC; Lorna Rempel, manager of Holden Lodge; Sandra McLay, Camrose and Area Stroke Recovery Association; Christine Ginther, Plan It Consulting; Jo-Anne Tweed, Neighbor Aid; (back, left to right) Michelle Bowman, Camrose PCN; Signi Bruner, The Bethany Group; Steve Ofrim, Camrose Police Service; and Mona Lamoureux, Camrose Mental Health. Anyone who is interested in learning what elder abuse is, how to identify it, and what to do for those who are experiencing elder abuse is encouraged to attend the next training session at the Community Centre Feb. 13.

Imogene Walsh, director of the Battle River Community Foundation, is seen presenting a cheque to Jenine Fehr, family support coordinator and Loretta Johnson, executive director of the Camrose Women’s Shelter.

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $4,205 to the Camrose Women’s Shelter. This grant is made possible by the generosity of Deanne Morrow and Tony Hladun who have provided flow-through funding for this grant. Camrose Women's Shelter Society is a non-profit organization that exists to assist individuals and families who are experiencing the effects of family violence to work toward a lifestyle free of abuse. The Shelter provides a safe, secure and supportive residential environment for women and children affected by domestic violence or in a crisis situation. The shelter has a 22-bed capacity and is wheelchair accessible. Programs include: information groups on family violence, supportive counselling and referral, family support and childcare, a full-time school program for children K-9 and an outreach program. Approximately 20 staff and many volunteers support the programs and service delivery. This grant will be used to purchase supplies that will enhance the children’s programming offered at the shelter by providing program items and some capital items that will better suit the children’s needs. Some items may include small tables and chairs for their dining room, booster seats for their van, TV and DVD for the children’s area, smart board, games, “Crocs” type shoes for in-house use, children’s picnic tables for outside, back packs for children, and books and supplies for special monthly themes which are part of the children’s program. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects in East Central Alberta which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Contributions to the Battle River Community Foundation are permanently invested in endowment funds currently valued in excess of $6.8 million. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local projects such as the Camrose Women’s Shelter. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors like Deanne and Tony who make flow-through gifts through the Battle River Community Foundation. Since its founding in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1.7 million to various projects and initiatives.

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.

Athletes preparing for Winter Games Continued from page 28

Ray attended a Zone 4 pep rally on Feb. 3 in Lacombe to meet other athletes representing the area. "When you play a full schedule, you don't have time to watch other sports. This is a good opportunity to meet other people. On the bus trip you have the opportunity to talk to others. However, I'm not taking the bus this time because I need to get back sooner," said Ray. "We have some meals provided for the athletes, but when you are on different schedules you may not even see other people from Camrose unless they are on the same team." Ray said it is interesting playing on the same team as others that he played against for years. "When you're my age, it comes down to numbers. The team needed a body to play, so I accepted. The Games are fun and it's good to participate," added Ray. "We understand that the team is up against Edmonton and Calgary that may have ex-pros or certainly guys who played in the American Hockey League. We compete for the fun of it. I enjoy playing on the same team as guys I played against in the past. We have a guy on our team who is 82 years old. I used to play ball against him and now we are on the same team. That's kind of fun. As long as we don't get beat too bad, it is a lot of fun. At our age it has to be fun to be still involved. I'm thankful I can still be involved." Local athletes going to the Alberta 55 Plus Winter Games include Daisy Bailey, scrabble; Michael Kostiuk, badminton; Ted Gillespie, badminton; Ed Kieller, badminton; Helen Samm, cross-country skiing; Glenys Smith, cross-country skiing; Alvin Eyolfson, crosscountry skiing; Ivar Saugen, cross-country skiing; Garry Gibson, cross-country skiing; Ray Heck, hockey; Maurice Johnson, hockey; Bob Burt, hockey; Byron Boyd, hockey and George Odovichuc, hockey.

Former junior hockey stars enjoy move to a higher level of play By Murray Green

Currently the Canadian Junior Hockey Leagues have more than 1,950 alumni competing on college and university teams across North America. A total of 578 players are in the NCAA Division I, which accounts for 37 per cent of the players. Another 594 are in NCAA Division III and make up 27 per cent of the players and about 780 are enrolled in Canadian universities and colleges to make up 61 per cent of the players. "There is no denying how successful the CJHL and its 10 junior-A leagues have been at paving the way to college hockey careers in Canada and the United States,” said president Kirk Lamb. "Junior-A's role is to provide premier development and maximum exposure so that our student-athletes can further their hockey and academic careers. Clearly we are doing that." Each season hundreds of CJHL players and alumni commit to universities and colleges on both sides of the border. In Canada, over 780 former CJHL players are currently in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport), Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC), BC Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) and Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA). Torrie Dyck, a former standout in the SJHL with the Nipawin Hawks, has since gone on to play in both the CIS (University of Alberta) and ACAC (Augustana). "Playing three years of junior-A allowed me to take the next step to the ACAC, and subsequently to the CIS," said Dyck, who is currently playing for the University of Alberta Golden Bears. "I still reflect on my time in the CJHL and realize that those were some of the best years of my life," said the top points-per-game producer of the top ranked team. "The CJHL has perennially been loaded with blue-chip NCAA prospects," said Mark Dennehy, coach of Merrimack College of Hockey East, "The coaches understand how to develop these players and are very knowledgeable about the recruiting process." Former Kodiaks playing in the NCAA Division 1 include, Craig Bokenfohr, Colin Dueck, Clayton Jardine, Sam Jardine, Nolan Kaiser, Tom Kroshus, John Lidgett, Andrew MacWilliam, Ross McMullen and Shawn Ostrow. Luke Challier and Tanner Dion are playing in NCAA Division 3. Nigel Dube is playing in the American Collegiate Hockey Association. CIS alumni include Dalyn Flette, Colton Grant, Wyatt Hamilton, Tyler Jewitt, Jacob Johnston, Brad McConnell, Brooks Myers, Tyler Skauge, Rylan Wiest, Cole Wilson and Matt Wray. The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference for Kodiaks includes Jesse Altheim, Jeremy Beirnes, Kenny Bradley, Andre Herman, Brayden Hopfe, Landon Kadatz and Kris Moore.

Report on the Legislature Doug Griffiths, MLA, Battle River - Wainwright More Albertans to get access to high-speed Internet

Up to 4,600 additional households in rural central Alberta will now have access to highspeed Internet. A new government initiative will help eligible residents in rural and remote areas connect to high-speed Internet thanks to satellite technology and waived installation distance costs. The initiative supports the Alberta government’s plan to provide high-speed Internet access to at least 98 per cent of Albertans. The Government of Alberta is partnering with Xplornet Communications Inc. to provide high-speed Internet satellite service to rural and remote households that fall within the service footprint and are currently without access. Eligible households will have the standard installation distance charge of approximately $150 waived creating an equal opportunity for access to high-speed satellite service in the coverage area. Residents will pay monthly service fees. This initiative is the second phase of the Final Mile Rural Connectivity Initiative, the Alberta government’s strategy announced in January 2012 to close Internet service gaps in rural and remote areas. Until now, many rural and remote households in central Alberta have had limited or no options for high-speed Internet service. Cost of the five-year initiative is up to $900,000. The government will continue to look at innovative solutions to provide high-speed internet access for other currently unserved households across the province. Central Alberta homeowners can visit www.servicealberta. ca or call 1-888-777-4010 toll-free to check their eligibility for the new high-speed Internet satellite service program Government outlines plans for supporting 911 operators

The government plans to introduce new supports for 911 call centres so when Albertans dial 911, they continue to get the help they need in emergencies. The changes will address a number of challenges facing Alberta’s 911 call centres by: creating the ability for the government to introduce, in collaboration with 911 service providers, province-wide standards for 911 processes and procedures; giving 911 call centres more legal protection; supporting 911 call centres’ efforts to integrate “next generation” 911 technology like GPS and texting; introducing penalties for prank 911 calls; ensuring equity among phone users in contributing to the cost of 911 service. There are an estimated 2.7 million cellphone subscriptions in Alberta, and many 911 operators across Alberta say cellphones can account for up to 70 per cent of all calls they receive. Unlike landline users, cellphone users do not directly contribute to the cost of 911 services. Visit www.aema.alberta.ca for more information

Snarly Kodiaks bite Calgary Canucks By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks took out their frustrations on the Calgary Canucks on Jan. 30. Camrose scored three goals and outshot the Canucks 21-6 in the second period to win 6-2. The Kodiaks played one of their best games of the year as the playoffs approach. "We are definitely taking care of the d-zone first and getting our goals against numbers down. We are defending our zone first and then transitions from defence to offence better," said defenceman Dallas Bergstrom. "We want to move to offence well because a good offence is a good defence." Tanner Tyndall led the Kodiaks with a goal and two assists to help close the month with a road victory. Luc Vandale was given credit for the only tally in the opening period. However, he may have been on the bench by the time the puck crossed the line. Camrose built up a 4-0 lead when Tanner MacMaster, Jonathan Lashyn and Tyndall scored before the Canucks got on the scoreboard during a power play. In the third, former Camrose forward Kieran O'Neil pulled the trigger to make the contest close. However, Ryan Hoult and Layne Viveiros added insurance markers late in the game. Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 31 of 33 shots in the Camrose net to earn the win. "Discipline is the key for us. We have to stay out of the box as much as possible. We have to limit the other team's power play opportunities," explained Dallas. "When we receive power play opportunities, we have to capitalize on the chances as well."

The secondary scoring is starting to take shape. "Our young guys are starting to step up and help with scoring and that adds depth to our team. We are bonding more as a team. We don't have a lot of days off because we are preparing for playoffs. It's the nose to the grindstone now." The bears were a little testy, remembering the losses in Canmore and Okotoks. Camrose lost 4-3 in overtime to the Canmore Eagles in a game where it still

hasn't been determined if the puck actually crossed the goal line on Jan. 25. After a scoreless opening period, Camrose battled the Eagles to a 2-2 draw in the second. The Kodiaks snuck ahead in the third, but Canmore netted the equalizer with 21 seconds left on the clock to force overtime. Zack Rassell scored the winner in the extra frame. Gibney stopped 32 of 36 shots he faced for Camrose. The Kodiaks were ham-

mered 7-0 by the Okotoks Oilers on Jan. 26. The Oilers are fighting to unseat Camrose in second place in the south. Okotoks outshot Camrose 41-26 and had leads of 2-0 and 4-0 at the intermissions. Goalie Devin McDonald stopped 34 of the 41 shots he faced. Three current Camrose players and two former members were honoured with Friends of the AJHL Society Scholarships on Feb. 2. Scott Ferguson, Dallas Bergstrom and Luc Lemire

received scholarships this year. Former Kodiaks Brayden Hopfe and Landon Kadatz also earned Charles S. Noble scholarships. "I applied for the Friends of the AJHL Society Scholarship and it is definitely good to receive the help. I've been living away from home, so the money will come in handy for further education." Dallas plans to attend the Camrose Composite High School next year to prepare for university the year after. "I'm thinking of engineering or physio-therapy; I'll see how it goes." The Bashaw player is used to playing hockey away from home. "I played a year in Stettler before playing two years of bantam in Camrose. In bantams, my coach was Jason Fleck, so we had a connection to the Kodiaks. I wanted to play for the team and it's great because my teammates are great guys. I receive a lot of support from home because it is only 45 minutes away," said Dallas. "It's been a good decision because the fans are great, the coaching and players are great. I'm happy to be here. I can't ask for much more." The Kodiaks will be holding their annual Sportsmen Dinner and Silent Auction on Feb. 16 at the Norsemen Inn. The skills day event will be held on Feb. 18 in the EnCana Arena. The Kodiaks are on another three-game road trip. Camrose plays at home on Feb. 14 against Drumheller, Feb. 15 with Brooks as the opposition, and Feb. 17 the Calgary Mustangs finish the home season for Camrose. The first two games begin at 7:30 p.m. and the last contest against the Mustangs starts at 2 p.m.

Augustana ladies grab first place in hoops By Murray Green

Since the basketball season began last October, the ladies' Augustana Vikings has been on a roll. The team has shared first place with the King's University Eagles until late January. Both squads were unbeaten until they met each other in Edmonton on Jan. 24. Augustana emerged with an 87-74 victory and backed that up with an 80-71 win at home to gain sole possession of the top spot in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. "It's been a really great year for the team. We essentially kept the same team together from last year and we have continued to build on it. The student athletes decided that they could achieve more this year. When we talked about goal setting last March, the athletes wanted to make an impact and direct where we wanted to go this year," explained coach Leanne Shenton. "We made a concentrated effort to improve areas that we needed to grow in." The team has grown on and off the court. "We decided to develop and contribute as an entire team. That's really important. Sometimes that means a good offensive player needs to defend more, or it means they have to share the

ball more," said Leanne. "It's a credit to the kind of character the Vikings have and that they really do care about each other. They care more about the team

growth than their individual growth." It is not uncommon for the lady Vikings to receive scoring from 10 or 11 players in a game.

"One of our biggest strengths is that we are strong as a team. We have worked on our weaknesses to improve. I feel any player on the team can score for us and anyone can defend," said Leanne. "That makes us stronger." With Augustana knocking off the Eagles in two games, the team gained valuable confidence. "Those were regular season games. The Eagles are a very strong team and we have to believe they will be better the next time we play them," said Leanne. "It wasn't a statement as much as just a point in the season to show us what to work on. They are extremely talented and athletic, and will be better in the playoffs. We will continue to work on our strengths and keep improving our weaknesses, so they become strengths as well. It's important to work on our weaknesses every single time we have the opportunity." Augustana will be hosting the playoff tournament Feb. 28 to March 2. "It will be a plus for us to host this event. Our fans are the best in the league. We are at an advantage because we can stay at home. There are distractions at home, but having extra fans at home will be a huge support to us. The crowd gives our players a huge boost in confidence."

This past week, Kelsey Lund was the leader of the pack. She was named ACAC player of the week by having a huge weekend for the Vikings on offense and defense. In the two games against the King’s University College Eagles, Kelsey garnered 25 points and 15 rebounds in the first contest and added another 22 points and 22 rebounds in the return match in Camrose. Kelsey’s hustle contributed to the Vikings beating a previously undefeated and quite strong King’s team. Kelsey is the team’s leading scorer with 212 points averaging 14.1 points per game. Her contributions have kept the Vikings undefeated and in first place overall. Kari Kubinec chipped in with 20 in the first meeting and added 17 in a strong supporting role in the second game. The next home game for Augustana is on Feb. 9 with Concordia providing the opposition. The women's game starts at 6 p.m. and the men follow at 8 p.m. The Vikings close out the regular season by hosting the Keyano Huskies on Feb. 15 and 16. Friday's games are at 6 and 8 p.m. On Saturday, the women's game begins at 1 p.m. and the men start at 3 p.m.
