city-wide realtors’ drive for the Camrose Food Bank he wasn’t anticipating the level of cooperation and participation. He could never have predicted the extreme success of the initiative. He certainly wasn’t thinking of this idea gravitating into an annual endeavour!

On Thursday, March 8, between 5:30-7:30 pm, Camrose realtors will be working for the good of those less fortunate in our prized community. With the city mapped out into dozens of zones, approximately thirty sales representatives from Royal Lepage, Central Agencies Inc., Re/Max, Coldwell Banker Battle River Realty and Swan City Realty will be joining forces to canvas the city, seeking donations for the local food bank. Joining the contingent of realtors, will be a multitude of family members and additional management and staff from the participating businesses. According to Don Forestier, “I think we will easily surpass the truckloads of food we brought in last year. We’ve already got realtors using Facebook to promote the event. I know of a realtor who puts out signs to remind people in his assigned territory that he’ll be back later seeking a food donation. With the amount of coverage we’re getting, I’d be willing to bet there will be bags of food on doorsteps or door-knobs, as people anticipate our visit.” If you want to assist by becoming a canvasser for this drive, contact any local real estate office. If you want to make a non-perishable food donation but will not be home Thursday evening, call any Camrose real estate office and a pick-up at your home or office will be arranged.

Drever supports Kidney Foundation

By Dan Jensen

A bylaw authorizing the 2012 City Center Camrose Business Revitalization Zone tax, Business Revitalization Zone business tax rate, supplementary Business Revitalization Zone assessment and supplementary Business Revitalization Zone tax was given three readings by City council at its Feb. 27 meeting. The 2012 levy will raise $65,000 for City Center Camrose operations. Section 18 of the Business Revitalization Zone regulation directs council to pass a BRZ tax rate sufficient to raise the amount the City Center Camrose BRZ board will receive from the City as set out in the board's approved budget. Assessments are based on the floor space occupied for the purpose of the business and the dollar rate per unit of floor space. The number of businesses that will pay the levy in 2012 is 266. Letters were mailed to City Center Camrose businesses on Feb. 14 notifying them of the proposed tax rate bylaw. The City Center Camrose Business Revitalization Zone is bounded by 45 Street and 46 Street on the east, 53 Street on the west, Highway 13 (48 Avenue) on the south, and the CP Railway on the north.

Senior Centre Society looking for answers By Dan Jensen

Count the Camrose Senior Society among the parties that have a strong interest in knowing what City council has in mind for Mirror Lake Centre. "We would dearly love to be there for a long time," said Senior Centre Society president Wilf Maertens-Poole in a presentation to Camrose City council Feb. 27. Senior Centre Society treasurer Rose Snopek told council a decision on the future of the Centre is needed soon so that plans can be put into place for the future. "We need some direction from council. Are we staying there? Are we part of the new City Hall? Are we going to have to look at a new building all by ourselves?" Maertens-Poole said the Senior Centre Society is trying to determine whether it should invest in the Mirror Lake Centre long term or in the short term, or whether it should put its money into a new facility.

"The single most important facility at Mirror Lake Centre is, of course, the auditorium. "The auditorium is important not only for our clubs but the events that they put on." "Every club that uses it really enjoys it." The City of Camrose has been using the lower level of the Mirror Lake Centre for its engineering and planning departments since the discovery of mould in its main building on 50 Avenue three years ago. Major changes

The Camrose Senior Centre Society operates with 17 – soon to be 18 – clubs, a board of four elected persons that meets ten times a year, and a bookkeeper who works on a contractual basis one day per month. "Our lease is two years plus one so it expires in 2013," said Maertens-Poole. "We can't rent or sublet any of our rooms without violating our lease with the City." Senior Centre Society clubs

pay a monthly fee of $2.50 per person per visit, for a total of $45,640 per year. "We rely on peer pressure at our meetings to make this work and it works very well," said Maertens-Poole. Senior Centre Society membership has grown from 185 in 2007 to 274 as of February 21, reaching a peak of 337 in 2011. Over that same period of time the debt has dropped from a little more than $270,000 (Sept. 19, 2007) to $121,538. "We took it upon ourselves that this debt must be paid to the City of Camrose and the debt has been reduced significantly," said Maertens-Poole. While the debt has gone down, the amount the Senior Centre Society has accumulated in reserves has increased to the point that they now total $94,860.57. Income and expenditures for 2011 totalled $58,000 and $27,000 respectively. Senior Centre Society secre-

tary Iris Baker told council that the Camrose Wildrose Dance Club holds meetings at the Mirror Lake Centre every month of the year, drawing, on average, 150 to 200 dancers from all over Alberta and Saskatchewan. "Last week we were down in Las Vegas and there were at least 30 people there who come to our dances," said Baker. "So many of them tell us what a beautiful facility we have, and that they just love coming here to dance. When they come here most of them stay overnight in our hotels, eat in our restaurants and shop in our stores." Matter of patience

Camrose City manager Damian Herle told the delegation there are no easy answers to their questions at this time. "It (the City Hall facility) has been designated as a 1a/1b capital project for the City this year, so it is a matter of some patience in terms of the process. "We have some homework

to do ourselves in terms of those questions." Councillor Gerry Galenza gave assurances that no matter what happens with the Mirror Lake Centre the Senior Centre Society will not be forgotten "You are a very important part of the community." Councillor Max Lindstrand commended the Senior Centre Society executive on the work it has done the past few years, "These guys have done such a remarkable job of organizing this, as we have seen in the report tonight. This is a totally good news story. I would just like to remind everyone that up until a few years ago the seniors were applying for and receiving CDSS funding as well. These financial statements are over and above that." Councillor Brandon Blatz expressed the hope that council can make a decision on the new City Hall and Mirror Lake Centre sooner rather than later.

Police crack down on distracted drivers By Dan Jensen

Stand up to bullies, says Olson Attorney General Verlyn Olson spoke to students at Ecole Sifton School on bullying. By Dan Jensen

Attorney General Verlyn Olson encouraged students at Ecole Sifton School to take a stand against bullying during the National Pink Shirt Day celebration Feb. 29. "Sometimes you can be unkind to somebody not by saying mean things to them or doing bad things to them," said Olson, the MLA for the WetaskiwinCamrose constituency. "You can be unkind to them just by not speaking up for them, just by being quiet. "If we see somebody who is being bullied we need to stand up for them. We need to tell somebody, we need to tell people not to be unkind to them and sometimes that takes a brave person. I know you would feel

good about yourselves if you did that." Olson thanked the students and their teachers for everything they are doing to make their school and neighbourhood safe and embracing the government's message that bullying is not acceptable. "We really think that it is important in our schools and everywhere that there is no bullying," he said. "It is really good to be in a school that is obviously really taking those messages seriously." The presentation by Olson brought to an end a month in which students at Ecole Sifton talked about tolerance of others and what it means. A power point presentation held during

an assembly earlier in the day focused on strategies and ways students can stand up against bullying as a group. "We wanted to tell them what they can do and say so something like this isn't allowed to happen," said Ecole Sifton principal Colleen Nelson. Pink Shirt Day was started two years ago when two Nova Scotia high school students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, organized a high school protest to wear pink in sympathy of a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied. "I learned that two people can come up with an idea, run with it and it can do wonders," said Price. A report entitled Bullying and Victimization: The Problems

and Solutions for School-Aged Children notes that six per cent of children in Grades 1 to 8 have admitted to bullying others more than once or twice in the past six months. The report also indicates that fifteen per cent of children in Grades 1 to 8 have been victimized by the same rate, and that most victims are unlikely to report bullying. Voices for Children reported that 90 per cent of students do not like to see someone bullied, and that peers participated in 85 per cent of the bullying episodes. The difference between bullying and joking around with name calling or horse play is that in a bullying situation one person is actually seeking power over the person who is being bullied.

Camrose Police Service charged 75 with distracted driving during the month of February. "Seventy-two drivers were charged as a result of using their cellular phone while operating a motor vehicle," said Cst. Mike Kuster, Camrose Police Service traffic unit. "Two individuals were charged with reading while operating a motor vehicle." Camrose police implemented a distracted driving initiative in February as part of a provincewide strategy to make the roads in Alberta safer. "Our goal was to promote awareness of the issues surrounding distracted driving," said Kuster. Alberta's new distracted driving legislation came into effect in 2011. Research indicates that driver distraction contributes to 20 to 30 per cent of all collisions, and distracted drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a collision than attentive drivers. "Distracted driving literally impairs a driver's ability to operate a vehicle in a safe and attentive manner," said Kuster. Distracted driving carries a fine of $172. "Enforcement will continue in an attempt to raise public awareness and enhance traffic safety within the city of Camrose," said Kuster. The new distracted driving legislation restricts drivers from: using hand-held cell phones; texting or e-mailing; using electronic devices like laptop computers, video games, cameras, video entertainment displays and programming portable audio players (e.g., MP3 players); entering information on GPS units; reading printed materials in the vehicle; writing, printing or sketching, and personal grooming.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Community/Campus Partnership Endures Last week it was again my pleasure to attend the annual Community Awards Banquet in the Augustana dining hall. Each year, the occasion is hosted by the University and brings together donors and recipients of scholarship and bursary awards. The Community Awards program was initiated in 1973 by local visionaries for the purpose of providing financial assistance for post-secondary education to students with limited resources. It was also foreseen as having the potential to attract students to Camrose for post-secondary learning. For one hundred years, the educational institution and the community have been mutually supportive: as a result, as one has grown so has the other. Circa 1909 Norwegian pioneers talked of the need, in this geographic area, for a faith-based residential high school for rural students. At the time, visionary citizens of the town of Camrose could see the long-term benefit of having such an institution located here. As a lure, they donated about forty-four acres of land for such a purpose and soon the project was under way with the laying of the cornerstone for ‘Old Main’ on July 1, 1911. During the construction period, classes for about twenty students were held in Lutheran churches and board and room arrangements were made with the downtown Heather Brae Hotel. A humble beginning in a new town servicing a sparse population in an agriculturally dependent region! Over the span of a century, changes occurred. One hundred years ago, in the autumn of 1912, ‘Old Main’, stood alone on the outskirts of town when its doors opened as Camrose Lutheran College. Under its one roof were class rooms, lab, library, and office on the main floor; dormitory rooms on second, third and attic levels; and classroom, kitchen, dining hall, apartment for dean of men, and utilities in the lowest level. Today, ‘Old Main’ is called Founders’ Hall and stands, firmly matriarchal, as the focal point of the Augustana Campus which includes a magnificent library and forum, dormitory buildings, Faith and Life Centre, classrooms, lab, gym – and hundreds more students. Just over one hundred years ago, circa 1905, the village of Sparling, located on the banks of the Stoney Creek applied for incorporation as town of Camrose. Today, Camrose has small city status and has become a regional centre for retail services, health, education, recreation and entertainment. Local citizens take quiet satisfaction in calling it a university town! Historical records reveal that, throughout the past one hundred years, the community and the campus have worked collaboratively to achieve growth and benefits for all. They have been complementary forces in developing a good place to live. A recent example was the cooperative way in which the City, County and University worked together to establish the sport development centre which is a benefit to all parties. A similar joint arrangement is presently pursing plans to construct a performing arts centre for both campus and community use. May we, the university and community, continue to value that enduring bond. May we be aware that without scholarships some students would not be able to get post secondary education which would limit their opportunities for employment. Education has never been more important because it is fundamental to eliminating poverty, here as well as anywhere in the world. May we be ever supportive of our town/gown bond and community awards program!

The mayor stated in his comments to the Camrose Booster that I was not in favor of CPAC and that I had some facts wrong in my presentation. I have asked the mayor, with copies to administration and council members, to advise me as to where my facts were wrong and have allowed a week for response. No response has been received. I am not opposed, but rather would like to see a CPAC, however, not on the terms and at the cost of the deal signed on for by City council. I have no reason to believe any of the facts I presented are incorrect. The parties to the CPAC agreement confirm that the City will donate the CPAC facility to the University upon completion of construction. The City’s projected cost of CPAC, and thus the amount of the donation, is $16,250,000. Although CPAC would no longer be an asset of the City, the debentures of $8,250,000 (less fundraising) would still be a liability of the City and the annu-

al payments of between $300,000 and $500,000 (depending on fundraising) would still have to be made by the City for 20 years. The University, under the current terms of the Agreement, and at its option, “may use CPAC for such purposes as deemed appropriate by UAlberta without the consent of the City” upon actual operating costs exceeding budgeted operating costs. Dean Berger states that the University has no intention of acting on the clause that would kick the municipality out of CPAC. As we all know intentions change as do people, but an Agreement remains in place. If the intention is to give the citizens of Camrose use of the facility into perpetuity, as the original intent of the City was stated, than change the Agreement to say so. Simple solution. In addition, to make the City whole again, have the Agreement require a repayment of a pro-rata share of the $16,250,000 City capital investment, should this happen. If, on the other hand it is the intention to truly be partners in this venture, have the City own the CPAC facility on a Land Lease from the University. What has not been highlighted in the newspaper stories is the cost to the taxpayer of the “deal” as it is currently configured. The impact on the taxpayer of the budgeted operating costs and debenture payments (factoring only half of the second debenture assuming there is some success in fundraising) is a tax requirement of 3.80% ($682,250 per year on a tax base of $17,942,000). The full in cost, which recognizes that the MSI funds and grant funds that are used in this project could

be made available to other necessary City projects, I estimate to be 6.95% ($1,246,822). If you have concerns on this deal, write your Council immediately. Without feedback Council will proceed with the deal as structured and your cost of living in Camrose will go up. David W. Kotyk Camrose Against our wishes

I write regarding the government's approval of both of the proposed DC north-south power lines (EATL and WATL). Despite spending multi millions of our taxpayer dollars on recent "Reviews," and both Redford's and Morton's avowed claims that they are "listening" to Albertans, this Government has again completely ignored what Albertans say. Albertans said, loudly and clearly, stop the lines, and repeal Bill 50! But no one was listening. The government announcement that both DC lines (EATL and WATL) are needed and will be built is an outright betrayal! – and, a double blow! Morton's "promise" to "rewrite" (instead of repeal Bill 50 "after the election" in the fall, rings hollow and simply adds insult to injury ... just another promise to be broken. This government had its last chance to stop the proposed (un-needed) lines, and repeal the offending Bills during this spring session. But this government chose not to – again ignoring Albertans' "invited" input. Albertans will vote accordingly. Marion Leithead Bawlf

Scrabble tournament at Duggan Mall

Battle River School Division board of trustees chair Cheryl Smith and early literacy league teacher Debbie Thompson put their word power to the test at the ATA Local's first annual Letters for Literacy Scrabble tournament at the Duggan Mall Saturday, Feb. 25. BRSD schools and the head officer were asked to sponsor a representative or two to a minimum of $50. Money raised from the tournament was split fifty-fifty between Reading University, a program offered in Camrose and Tofield each summer by the Battle River Community Foundation in partnership with Battle River School Division, as well as ABC Life Literacy Canada.

FOOT PROBLEMS? I can help! Back and Body Pain How many times have you said “My back hurts. I just need to sit down.” How many times do you feel fatigue in your back and body during the day? Our feet are our shock absorbers for our whole body. Now if your feet are not functioning properly, your whole body, especially your back, will feel the difference. PROGNOSIS: If untreated, your life can change significantly – not being able to work, spend time with your loved ones, and ultimately your health will suffer. Has anyone ever looked at your feet as the cause of the pain? Eighty percent of back pain is caused by carrying our weight incorrectly on our feet. TREATMENT: Total orthotics will help to elminate the pressure on your back and legs to help release tense muscles. The orthotic will take pressure off the heels to neutralize the pressure through the lower extremities to make the pressure come off the back. For your free foot assessment, please call Total Orthotics. Karen Anderson has been an orthotic tech for ten years, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dr. Jacques Després – internationally recognized, awardwinning pianist – will visit Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta, presenting a trio of events in the University Chapel that is sure to inspire deep appreciation among music enthusiasts. The three-day visit begins with a public lecture on the French composer, Claude Debussy (1862-1918) on Thursday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. As this year marks the 150th anniversary of Debussy's birth, his work, Préludes, deuxième livre, L123, figures largely in the recital that Dr. Després will perform on Friday, March 9, at 8 p.m. Works by Beethoven and Liszt are also on the program. The recital is followed by a piano masterclass the next day – Saturday, March 10, from 9:30 a.m. until noon. Participants include the Augustana Bachelor of Music piano performance majors from the studio of Dr. Milton Schlosser. Both the public lecture and masterclass are free of charge and the public is very welcome to attend. Dr. Després, a direct descendant of Québec City's first settler, caught the attention of legendary Canadian conductor Wilfrid Pelletier as a young pianist with his extraordinary musical talent. He was awarded a Premier Prix à l'unanimité au Conservatoire de Musique du Québec. Tickets for the March 9 recital can be purchased at the door.

Arts Centre to feature Dave Jones The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is proud to feature Tofield artist Dave Jones this month. Dave was born in Ontario in 1945. He took a one-year art course and then moved to Alberta in 1973. Dave has shown his work in London, Ontario; Nanaimo, BC; and in the Foyer Gallery, Canadiana Gallery and Front Gallery in Edmonton. His work is based on his association, thoughts and feelings of the relationship between all living things in his world. An ever expanding way of looking at all things above and below and the cycle of life as it is an important aspect of our higher self. Dave starts his Mandalas in the centre and works outward using fish, birds, insects and animals in a circular motion and attempts to create an uplifting experience for the viewer in a colourful and expansive way. His watercolours are working formats for larger pieces and again he tries to show the ephemeral movements and images of people, landscapes and wildlife using a fully charged palette. Stop by and take a look. The show will be on until March 29th. For more details call 672-9949.

Leeroy Stagger plays at Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar on March 10.

Leeroy Stagger and his band are getting a jump on promoting their upcoming new album. They are heading out on a pre-release tour of Alberta that includes a stop at the Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar on March 10. Leeroy signed a record deal with Danny Goldberg's (Nirvana, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon) new record label, GoldLake Records. Rose City Music Society fans will be able to listen to a few songs from the new album Radiant Land, which will be released on May 1. "We are a cross between Tom Van Zant and Tom Petty. We blend folk and rock and roll. We like good harmonies and writing good songs," said Leeroy. "I started in my early 20s and this will be my seventh CD. I've had my music on television shows like Grey's Anatomy. I've been really blessed to be able to do this for a living." The Lethbridge singer knows where Camrose is on the map. Despite his folk and rock music tendencies, Leeroy was a hit in the songwriter's tent at the Big Valley Jamboree two years ago. "I can't share how I write songs, but I enjoyed stripping down the music to acoustics and showing people how songs start. Even though I'm not country, the fans took to me and it was a good experience." Leeroy likes to mix old favourites he has written in the past with the new releases. "There are songs that appeal to certain regions. A song called "Beautiful House" is loved in Alberta because I started singing it at house parties in Calgary. It was touching to them and those fans talk about it more." His song "Just in Case" was picked up by Grey's Anatomy and has a popular following because of the television series. "It is cool. I revamped it a bit so it is more fun for me to play. My favourites are the new songs because I am still at the top of my game as far as writing." Leeroy said his band can adapt to any location. "I don't mind going to more acoustics in smaller stages. I still want to get the songs across to people. I like the wilder version, so people can dance and really enjoy it." The four-piece band will feel like home in Camrose. "I really love touring Alberta. I like to be pleasantly surprised by Albertans on how warm and open they are to my music. We are excited to be coming to Camrose because we know the fans like good music." The show at Scalliwags begins at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening.

Camrose and District Community Band in concert On Sunday, March 18, the Camrose and District Community Band, under the direction of Tom Spila, will perform a concert at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta in Camrose. The concert, held in the Faith and Life Chapel, begins at 2 p.m., and there will be a silver collection at the door. The Band will perform a variety of selections, from standard concert band literature and marches to jazz and movie themes. The Camrose and District

Community Band was formed in 1983. It was started by a group of 26 interested local musicians, under the guidance of Tom Spila, for the purpose of providing a recreational adult band for the community. Camrose has always been an active area musically, going back to the days of the Rose City Band in the 1960s. The formation of the Camrose and District Community Band allowed former Rose City Band members, former school players and interested

beginners to join in an enjoyable evening of music every week, and to acquire and improve skills many thought were long gone. The focus of the band is educational, but the group also provides a wonderful social outlet. Members thrive musically and make new acquaintances at the same time. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 and in fact, has ranged from 18 to over 90 years. The business of the band is handled by an elected

executive with help from various committees. The band’s repertoire consists of a wide variety of styles. Performances include local trade shows and events, public concerts and festivals. Membership has grown to over 60 and includes people from all walks of life. For many years now Augustana students with past band experience have been able to join in the band as full members while receiving university credit for their work. The group rehearses Tuesday evenings at Camrose Com-

posite High School and is directed by Tom Spila with assistance from Robert (Bob) Bailey, R. J. (Bob) Wilson, and Norman Skretting. The season runs from late September to early June. The band welcomes all newcomers so if you are interested, come out to the concert the afternoon of March 18th and feel free to talk to members of the band, the director, or his assistants. Feel free to call 672-1051 for further information.

Government ready to hike energy costs By Murray Green

The Critical Transmission Review Committee (CTRC), chaired by former PC party vicepresident Brian Heidecker, has given Premier Alison Redford and the Alberta Government the go-ahead to add the $16.6 billion construction cost of two lines to your energy bill. The cost will be shared by all electrical users for the next 30 years. The CTRC said it wants to proceed as soon as possible, leaving Albertans no time to prepare for hikes that will double or triple the transmission portion on your monthly electrical bill. "This is a massive overbuild that business leaders across the province have told the government they don't want. The government has stopping listening to Albertans," said Alberta Landowners Council chair Keith Wilson. Mr. Wilson spoke at the Alberta Surfaces Rights Federation annual meet-

ing at the Norsemen Inn in Camrose, on Feb. 28. "You are running out of options because the current government isn't listening," said Mr. Wilson, a lawyer. "You can pay for the lines with the prices way out of whack and mortgage your future, or you can vote for a different government." The CTRC ignored the numerous submissions against the massive transmission line overbuild, and listened only to Altalink and ATCO, two businesses that will receive a guaranteed nine per cent profit from the project. "The province’s leading industrial and food processing associations are also on record saying that unless the government reconsiders its actions, as a direct result of just one of these bills, thousands of jobs will be lost and the province’s food processing industry will suffer major and permanent loss," said Mr.

Wilson. "When the power bills start to triple in cost, most high volume users will move out of the province. Each time a business or individual jumps off the grid, the rest of the people will have to pick up the slack in costs. That means you and I will pay even more." Bill 24

The Carbon Capture and Storage Statutes Amendment Act allows the government to pump CO2 underground into the pore space. "The old landowner's rights says you own the land from the top soil to the centre of the Earth," explained Mr. Wilson. "The government wants to take away your land rights so it can own the pore space and store carbon. Bill 24 unilaterally takes ownership and gives it to the government. It contains legal wording that says no court can find this taking to be an expropriation and no compensation is payable."

Bill 50

The Electric Statutes Amendment Act, Bill 50, allows all Albertans to pay companies (Altalink and ATCO) the full cost of building transmission lines and then gives them the lines to own. "The $16 billion cost is paid for by the users, meaning you and I. These lines are built on a cost plus nine per cent rate of return on investment basis," added Mr. Wilson. "Some companies will have no choice, but to relocate outside the province because the net effect will be to triple power rates." The government energy minister Ted Morton confirmed prior to the PC leadership race, that it wants the new lines to export power at the cost of all Albertans. Bill 36

Ted Morton led the charge in the Alberta Land Stewardship Act, Bill 36. "It gives the Cabi-

net sitting in the secrecy of the cabinet room, complete authority to make any decisions affecting your existing rights. It is the most complete and absolute power you could see put into legal language," said Mr. Wilson. The Bills are without precedent in Canada, or even in the free societies of western democracies. “Bill 36 alone, gives politicians in the Cabinet Room the central planning powers to say what every piece of private property and Crown land in the province can and cannot be used for. The Bill gives Cabinet the power to override all local municipal governments when it comes to saying what a piece of land can and cannot be used for, or what its designated use will be,” said Mr. Wilson. "Cabinet’s decisions trump every decision made by a local municipality and by every provincial regulatory body."

City gets money's worth

A Note to Our Rural Readers

By Dan Jensen

The City's $2,500 sponsorship of the exhibition game between Team USA and Team Switzerland before the December and January World Junior Hockey Championships paid off in a big way. "I believe it should be pointed out that, as a result of this game and the American team hosting their training camp in Camrose, the City of Camrose has reaped considerable benefit that far exceeds the $2,500 sponsorship paid," said former City councillor Kevin Pratt. The City of Camrose received $2,000 from the American team for rental of ice during a time of day when the arena usually sees little use. The City also received much good will and advertisement through front page news stories in the Edmonton Journal and Calgary Herald, and from reports on the Edmonton and Calgary TV stations. The American/Swiss Hockey Game and training camp was promoted by the Camrose Sport Development Society, which has contributed a great deal of money towards the EnCana Arena for the air conditioning system ($87,000), the big screen jumbotron, the construction of skyboxes and improvements to the dressing room, which is also used for major events. The society also continues to pay rent for dressing rooms, training rooms, office space and storage space. The society does not request a portion of the concession revenue generated at Camrose Kodiaks games. "All revenue generated," said Pratt, "goes directly to Minor Sport." Pratt said he is proud to have been on council when the decision to build the Edgeworth Centre was made. "We can all take pride in the positive comments that visitors to our city express about the facility and the events that Camrose has been privileged to host because we have the facility." The Edgeworth Centre opened its doors in September 2007. The main corridor serves as a connecting link between the two pre-existing facilities: the Recreation Centre (Max McLean Arena and the Curling Rink) and the Aquatic Centre.

Lambert running as candidate in Battle River-Wainwright By Dan Jensen

Midge Lambert will be seeking election as Alberta Party MLA for the constituency of Battle River Wainwright in the next provincial election. Lambert is a retired small business owner and landowner who lives in the Kelsey area. She was raised in Consort, graduated from high school in Edmonton, and lived for many years in Edmonton and Calgary, as well as Turner Valley, before moving to east central Alberta in 1999. Lambert owned and operated a small catering and cook business for 35 years, and has worked throughout the province. She sits on the board of the Battle River Watershed

Alliance and is president of the Kelsey Drama Club. Her maternal grandfather, W.J. "Pop" Elliott, was involved in agricultural education as the first principal at Olds College, and was the founder of 4-H in Alberta. Lambert feels Albertans want and need to be part of making the decisions that impact their lives. "Albertans want to work with government in creating legislation, not be left with having to protest it after it is passed," said Lambert in a Feb. 26 letter to friends, neighbours and colleagues. "We have countless ideas, solutions and innovations that should be welcomed by

our government, not rebuffed because of ideologies. Albertans want collaboration, not confrontation." Lambert has learned that Albertans want their MLAs to be free to represent the interests of themselves first. "They want their MLAs to be community leaders who know their constituents," she said. "Albertans want their representatives to be respectful of all Albertans, and, above all, Albertans want their MLAs to be transparent, open and honest." Lambert describes the Aberta Party as a grassroots organization that is policy driven, not personally driven. "The Party's policies were

developed through the "Big Listen", a new approach that allows Albertans, through authentic consultation, to participate in the formation of public policies," she said. "Albertans were asked to describe the challenges that they faced every day, the hopes they had for the future, and what they loved about our province. These face-toface conversations were held across Alberta, in every kind of venue, without any kind of political partisanship, and recorded word for word. With the help of hundreds of volunteers spending hundreds of hours, the notes were compiled, reviewed by more expert volunteers, debat-

ed again and voted on by members, and now form the Alberta Party policy documents that you can find and read on our website, www." The Alberta Party has existed in one form or another since 1985. In 2010, it decided to undertake a serious rebuilding effort and move the party to the centre of the political spectrum. In November 2009, the Renew Alberta movement announced its intention to establish a new centrist political party in Alberta. In January 2010 Edwin Erickson was acclaimed as leader of the Alberta Party with a mandate to unite Renew Alberta and the Alberta Party.

Augustana students receive help with studies By Dan Jensen

One hundred and sixty-five Augustana students were the

recipients of annually funded and endowed awards totalling approximately $190,000 at the university's community awards banquet Feb. 29. Augustana Students' Association vice president, communications, Naomi Finseth, expressed appreciation at the banquet to the award donors for helping to improve the students' Augustana experience. "Thanks to their kind donations, students are given the opportunity to travel, to lead, and to serve their communities, all while earning a quality education. "This support allows students to experience a more well-rounded university life without the added stress of wondering how they are going to pay." Finseth said there is nothing like knowing that your community is invested in seeing you succeed. "I believe this support helps inspire Augustana students to go above and beyond and be more than what they thought they could be, not only for themselves but for their communities.." Augustana dean Allen Berger said one of the most special features of the univer-

sity is the close relationship it has with the community. "This relationship was visible to me from my first days here on campus in August and September as I learned about the work of our rural sustainability interns with local and community organizations, as I attended the barbecue on 49 Street where students and local residents mingled, ate together and shared stories, and as I began working with the City council on final negotiations for the performing arts centre. Tonight is one more demonstration of how close and important the relationship between Augustana and the community is." Berger challenged students who were recipients of awards to someday give back by supporting a future generation of students. "Our generous donors who are seated with you tonight are certainly role models for all of us." The Augustana Community Awards program received significant and special gifts over the past year. New awards include the Dee-Jay Plumbing and Heating Scholarship, the Lorene Pinno Memorial Award for a student with satisfactory academic standing entering any year of an undergraduate

degree at Augustana faculty who has a disability, and a Val Wolski Memorial Award (endowed) for a continuing student with satisfactory academic standing enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at Augustana faculty with a major or minor in psychology. Augustana development assistant and awards program coordinator Bree Urkow expressed appreciation to award donors for having a desire to make a difference in the community and invest in the future. "As donors in the Community Awards Program you have much to be proud of. Not only are you giving to and supporting students right now as we enter Augustana's second century, you are also fostering a culture of giving in future generations, and that is priceless. "Thank you for your enthusiasm and thank you for your commitment to a program that has stood the test of time." Weta sk iw i n- Ca m rose MLA and Attorney General Verlyn Olson described the students at Augustana as leaders of tomorrow but also as leaders of today. "There are many people, including all of us in this room, who are extremely

proud to have you associated with Augustana and the University of Alberta, and we look forward to the many wonderful things that we know you are going to accomplish in your lives in all different walks of life, whether around the world or around the corner." Olson said just as the Augustana Community Awards program is the envy of many institutions, Camrose is the envy of many other communities because of the fact it has a university. Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers said Augustana is a big piece of the City's vision to be a dynamic regional community focused on providing an exceptional quality of life. He added that students at Augustana enhance the quality of life of everyone in the community. County councillor Rob Bjorge said the awards are a way of expressing appreciation to students for their talents and ambition. He expressed appreciation to Augustana for being a great university and part of the community. Augustana director of development and community awards banquet emcee Bonita Anderson played on the Feb. 29 leap year day theme by noting that Augustana

has leaped confidently into its second century of educating the future citizens of the world. "Our new dean has leapt into his role as chief executive officer at Augustana campus and Augustana continues to thrive under his leadership." Anniversary donors who were recognized at the community awards banquet were: Burgar Funeral Home, 40 years; A. Hansen and Sons Construction (Camrose), 30 years; Jewell Enterprises Ltd., 25 years; Frankie's Flower Shop, Ross AgriSupplies (Camrose) Inc., and Streb's Automotive/Industrial Supply and Engine Services (1975) Ltd., 20 years; Camrose County, 15 years; and Farnham West Stolee LLP, Nahanni River Adventures Ltd. and Verhaeghe Law Office, 10 years. The Community Awards program was established in 1973 to assist in making post-secondary studies possible for students with limited resources, and to attract students to the then Camrose Lutheran College. The program is administered through the development office at Augustana campus in partnership with the student awards office at the University of Alberta's north campus.

Two Leduc students earn Dean's Citation awards By Dan Jensen

A Dean's Entrance Citation award of $10,000 spread over four years was presented to first year student Katrina Lexvold at Augustana's community awards banquet Feb. 29. Lexvold is a first-year Augustana student from Leduc who is enrolled in a Bachelor of Music program with a major in Piano. "I was very excited when I found out that I actually would receive this scholarship," said Lexvold. "The $2,500 per year means a lot for me as I am paying for my own education." While studying piano performance, Lexvold enjoys singing in the Augustana choir and is taking organ lessons for the first time. She plays the piano for Friday chapel services, and intends to be a student chaplain next year. She also plans to take voice lessons and spend more volunteer hours singing in the community. After graduation, Lexvold plans on both Master's and Doctorate degrees in music. Lexvold expressed appreciation to all those who have contributed to the awards program at Augustana. "Scholarships are very important to students. Tuition costs are high and many of us also have to pay rent or residents' fees. When you add in the cost of textbooks and food, some students barely scrape by. By providing scholarships you help students stay out of debt while rewarding academic achievement, community service and athletic accomplishments. "It means that those of us who are not able to afford university are able to go. It

means that those of us who work really hard to get grades are rewarded for our efforts. It means that those of us who have a passion for helping others and volunteering in the community are recognized and appreciated." Brittnee Kegler, from Leduc, received the Dean's Citation Award at the banquet as a third year student in the Bachelor of Science degree program, with a major in physical education,

kinesiology and sports studies, and a double minor in biology and chemistry. Kegler is preparing for a career in medicine. Dean's Entrance Citation Awards are based on superior academic achievement in Grades 10, 11 and 12 (typically a minimum average of 95 per cent or higher). The Outstanding Independent Work award for the fall term was presented to Saman-

tha Christensen for a piece of research entitled Little Cooks: Gender Class and Food in 19th Century Children's Literature. Criteria for the award include the breadth and depth of the challenge undertaken by the student, the intellectual effort involved in the project, the creativity and sophistication of the critical analysis attempted by the student, and the effectiveness of the student's written and oral presentation.

"We were impressed with the sophistication of Samantha's writing and her ability to engage her audience during her public presentation," said the award's selection committee. "Both were indicative of her clear mastery of her subject matter. In her analysis of the role of food in children's literature she excelled in linking critical theory with examples of the work she studied. Overall, an excellent analysis resulting in synthesis."

Invest regularly for wealth

For Canadians living with disabilities, there are a number of tax breaks designed to compensate for the extra expenses incurred. Even if you haven’t claimed your disability in the past, you may want to check if you qualify this year. The guidelines have recently been modified to include more Canadians. What does ‘disabled’ mean?

A disability is a severe impairment which makes it extremely difficult or time-consuming for you to carry out basic activities of daily living even if you are undergoing therapy and using appropriate devices and medications. The impairment must last or be expected to last 12 months and severely restrict your ability to see, walk, speak, hear or perform personal care activities or seriously affect your mental capacity to manage your personal affairs. The definition has been expanded as to allow for the cumulative effect of multiple impairments that individually would not be severe enough to qualify. For example, a taxpayer with multiple sclerosis who constantly experiences fatigue, depressed mood and balance problems will probably now qualify. Additional modifications also make it easier for sufferers of Type 1 juvenile diabetes to claim the disability credit. Generally, diabetics only qualify if their condition requires “life-sustaining therapy” for at least three times a week for a total of at least 14 hours. In the

Why It Makes Sense

There are two key advantages to regular investing. First, it allows you to invest smaller amounts of money on an ongoing basis, which is typically easier on your budget. Second, it gets your money working for you right away to maximize your opportunity for returns. And with dollar cost averaging, you don't need to worry about the right time to buy because you're always investing. Investing your savings frequently allows more time for your money to grow. Over time, the value of a monthly investment plan exceeds annual lump-sum contributions.

d,/^/>/dzdyZ/d t,dKh>/dDEdKD͍

RBC Royal Bank

Regular investing is a strategy where you invest a fixed amount on a regular basis. Integrating this type of discipline into your investment approach ensures continuous investing regardless of market performance. By investing regularly, you apply a “savings first” approach to managing your finances. Many investors find it easier to set aside a small amount on a regular basis rather than come up with a large, lump-sum investment.


past, taxpayers who controlled their condition with a syringe generally did not qualify under this provision. This is because Canada Revenue Agency took into account only the time administering the insulin when determining if the 14-hour requirement was met. However, the government has added the monitoring of blood sugar levels and dosage requirements to the types of activities that constitute therapy. As a result, more diabetics should now qualify. But before you start adding up your expenses, you must first file Form T2201 – the Disability Tax Credit Certificate – with your return. The form has to be completed by a doctor, optometrist, audiologist, occupational therapist, psychologist, physiotherapist or speech language pathologist and is used by the CRA to determine if your disability meets the prescribed requirements. What credits are available?

For 2011, the basic federal disability claim is $7,341, which translates into a federal tax credit of $1,101. The provincial tax savings vary depending on where you are living. Because it is a non-refundable credit, it only works to reduce your tax payable – it is not refunded if you don’t have any tax owing. If you don’t use the entire credit, you may be able to transfer it to someone else such as a spouse or parent. For disabled children under 18, there is also a $4,282 supplement, which will increase the maximum federal claim to $11,623. However, this amount is reduced by child care expenses and attendant care expenses

in excess of $2,508 that were claimed for the child. Disabled children can also qualify for the new $500 Children’s Fitness Credit including an additional $500 tax credit for any additional equipment that needs to be purchased to participate in an activity. There are cases when taxpayers support a relative who does not meet the strict definition of “disabled,” but is still dependent by reason of an infirmity. If the dependant lives with you and has net income of less than $18,906, you may be able to claim a caregiver amount of up to $4,282 for a potential federal tax break of $642 If the dependant does not live with you, you may still be able to claim an amount for infirm dependants if his or her net income is less than $10,358 However, in both cases, the dependant must be at least 18 at the end of the year. Each province also has its own disability and caregiver credits. Be sure to check the provincial credits available to you. Working Income Tax Benefit (WITB)

The 2007 Federal Budget introduced the WITB designed to help the transition of lower income Canadians into the workforce. For disabled taxpayers, the WITB supplement will be equal to 25 percent of earned income in excess of $1,150 up to a maximum of $465. The amount will be reduced for single taxpayers with no dependants with a net income in excess of $16,767 and for families with a net family income in excess of $25,854.

Central Agencies Home of the Week

Adult community living at its best

Matthew Mayer By Murray Green

If living in an area with likeminded neighbours and where pride of ownership is important to you, then the adult community of La Vista Villas is a wonderful choice. Make the move to easy living in your own private retreat in an appealing 45 and over community of people who share your lifestyle. The bright open floor plan of your 1,088 square foot home features vaulted ceilings, along with a welcoming decor. You'll find gorgeous, and generous, oak cabinetry in the bright and spacious kitchen that offers plenty of counter tops, many pantry pullouts and extra lighting both under and over the cabinets. The kitchen leads to an attractive dining area and an impressive living room with a relaxing atmosphere.

A beautiful sun room off the living room allows you to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature from the lovely backyard and the green space behind this charming home. With no neighbours behind you, you'll enjoy the peace and quiet of your convenient location. The sizeable master bedroom contains large double closets, extra storage and a three-piece en suite with a sit-down shower. A second bedroom, a four-piece bathroom and a laundry area complete the main level. The nicely finished basement contains a rumpus room, an additional bedroom, an office, a three- piece bath with a jetted tub, and an abundance of extra storage. The double heated garage has hot and cold running water

and a floor drain to make washing your vehicle a pleasure. Included with the purchase are the built-in dishwasher, fridge, built-in vacuum, jetted tub, ceiling fan, window coverings and the storage shed. Don't wait to see this wonderful, fully functional home with its easy to manage floor plan and numerous great features in a popular area. This impressive 3210-62A Street home is attractively priced to sell at $314,500. An open house will be held on March 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. If you miss the open house, contact Matthew Mayer for your personal guided tour at: Central Agencies Inc. 4870-51 Street, Camrose 780-672-4495 or 780-781-7088 cell

Rosalind 4-H Beef Club has had busy winter Spencer Bellingham Club reporter

Hello, this is Spencer Bellingham reporting from the Rosalind 4-H Beef Club. We have been busy lately with our club meeting in January at Charlie’s barn. Dr. Gail Cunningham came out and taught us how to better take care of our

animals. Then at the February meeting Ryan Crandall from the UFA came and helped us to better succeed with our public speaking. We would also like to thank everyone that came to our annual pancake supper and supported us in raising money for the club, and to those that bought beef

jerky at the supper; it is greatly appreciated. Our annual public speaking was held on the 26th of February and everyone did very well in putting a speech together. Our winners were: Junior Class: 1st Halley Hay, 2nd Tia Albers; Intermediate Class: 1st

Seanna Uglem, 2nd Spencer Bellingham; Senior Class: 1st Cody Bowie, 2nd Reggie Bowie. We would like to thank the judges and timers for taking time out of their day by assisting us with our public speaking. Until next report, stay warm and enjoy the snow!

Kodiaks eliminated in the first round by Calgary Canucks By Murray Green The Camrose Kodiaks know the meaning of sudden death. The dream of a long playoff run was laid to rest when the Calgary Canucks scored in overtime to end all hopes of a lengthy drive to defend the south division championship in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Calgary won 2-1 when defenceman Gianni Mangone netted an unassisted marker in overtime on Feb. 28. The loss eliminated the Kodiaks in four games. Camrose defenceman Josh Smith opened the scoring in the first period on a power play. The Canucks tied it up in the second with a man advantage, and both teams had trouble solving the netminding of Brayden Hopfe of Camrose and Michael Matyas of the Canucks, especially at even strength. Calgary poured on the shots with a 46-28 advantage including 8-1 in the extra frame. Hopfe held the Kodiaks in the game by making 44 saves and even stopped Brett Pinder on a penalty shot. When the dust settled, the

difference was the play of the special teams in the third game. The Camrose Kodiaks were doubled up 6-3 by the Calgary Canucks on Feb. 27. With the loss, the Kodiaks trailed the Canucks in the best of five series 2-1. The Canucks went four for 15 on the power play, while Camrose had a two for 11 night. Connor Mailey, Nolan Marshall and Joel Johnson scored for the Kodiaks. The Kodiaks used both goalies. Hopfe stopped 12 of 15 shots and Matt Gibney made 18 of 22 saves. The clubs split a pair of games on Feb. 24 and 25. Calgary won the first game 4-2. Dylan Schellenberg and Nolan Marshall scored for Camrose. Hopfe turned aside 19 of 22 shots. Calgary scored into an empty net with 10 seconds left in the game. The Kodiaks had more fight in the second game and won 5-1. Marshall garnered two goals while Cody Pongracz, Connor Mailey and Ryan Hoult added single markers. Gibney made 23 of 24 saves, while the Kodiaks had 28 shots on the Calgary net.

Pro Sports Photography The Camrose Kodiaks fired the puck into the top corner on this play at the EnCana Arena. The Kodiaks didn't have enough scoring to beat the Canucks in the Alberta Junior Hockey League playoff series.

BRCF presents grant to Children's Choir to assist with cost of summer trip to Ottawa

Battle River Community Foundation vice chair Vivianne Grue presents a cheque for $600 to Camrose Arts Society liaison Jane Cherry-Lemire and Camrose and Area Children's Choir treasurer Tammy Wollman.

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $600 to the Camrose and Area Children's Choir. The grant was funded from the Harry M. Kuntz Memorial Fund. The Harry M. Kuntz Memorial Fund was created in 1996 by the family of the late Harry Kuntz, who was well known as an active entrepreneur, a community leader and a volunteer. He served on Camrose City council and was a Member of Parliament at the time of his passing in 1973. The intent of this memorial is to assist youth in becoming good community citizens. The Camrose and Area Children's Choir has been an active part of the musical life of the community since 1999, with a junior and senior division since 2003, and an auditioned select ensemble since 2009. The junior and senior choirs are non-auditioned groups, meaning anyone with a love of singing can join at any level of ability. "It is important for the children of our community to be offered the opportunity to be part of this musical group and what it offers," said Jane Cherry Lemire, of the Camrose Arts Society. "And thanks to the Battle River Community Foundation for its support. This grant will assist in travel expenses for an upcoming trip to Ottawa to sing at the Unisong Canadian Choir Festival on Canada Day." The Camrose and Area Children's Choirs have received a wonderful opportunity for 2012. The senior choir and select ensemble have been offered the chance to travel to Ottawa for Canada Day 2012 as one of two ambassador choirs from Alberta to perform in the Unisong Canadian Choir Festival. The

Unisong Canadian Choir Festival brings together choirs representing each province, and offers them the chance to unite in song in a national choral festival that will be in its 16th year in 2012. The participating choirs each have the opportunity to perform individually throughout Ottawa, as well as joining in massed rehearsals that culminate in performing on-stage at the National A rts Centre in our nation's capital on Canada Day, with a renowned choir conductor. Each year, the choir's mandate of learning about great singing and musicianship leads it to perform in concerts, provide music for local charities and other community events, participate in the Camrose Music Festival. Festival of Trees and Jaywalkers' Jamboree, learn through workshops and choral festivals at both the local and provincial level, and take field-trip excursions to high-calibre local choral, orchestral and theatrical performances. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects in East Central Alberta, such as the Children's Choir, which benefit communities and have a positive impact on the future. Contributions to the Battle River Community Foundation are permanently invested in endowment funds, such as the Harry M. Kuntz Memorial Fund, currently valued in excess of $6.2 million. The principal remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local projects. Since its founding in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1.4 million to various projects and initiatives.

Richard “Wayne” Lomness April 10, 1950 – March 7, 2011 Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life, we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Love Valerie, Children and Grandchildren

Rufus Allen Carl August 31, 1920 – March 9, 2011 A year – yes, a long year – has gone by since you left us – suddenly, and yet not so suddenly, for we knew that your time here on earth was drawing to a close.

Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine And I, perchance, may therein comfort you. Forever loved, forever missed, Audrey and family

Orvin William Boettger

Arnold Melvin Knutson

Ruby Lillian Carle

Orvin William Boettger was born on his parents’ farm near Kingman. He was the fifth son of William and Lydia Boettger and lived there for 77 years, at which time they moved to Camrose. He shared his birthday with his mother and a nephew. Orvin accepted Christ as his Savior and was baptized when he was nine years old and became a member of Salem Mennonite Church. His Savior was very important to him, and he served in many different roles in the church such as Song Leader, Adult Sunday School Teacher, Deacon Board Member and Lay Assistant to the Pastor. On July 24, 1952, he married the love of his life, Elsie Amanda Stauffer. They shared a Christ-centered home until he went to be with his Lord and Savior on February 25, 2012 at their home in Camrose. At the time of his death, he had lived 81 years, 11 months and 8 days. Orvin was loved and will be missed by his wife Elsie; five children Don (Marilyn) of Kingman, Charlotte Twitchell (Ken) of Camrose, Laura of Camrose, Brian (Yvonne) of Harrisonburg, VA, and Doug of Keswick, Ontario; 11 grandchildren Nicole Kucy (Greg), Janelle Hein (Joel), Joel Boettger, Amanda Batke (Aaron), Amanda McLaughlin (Rob), Carissa, Kiara and Bryson Boettger, and Macenzie, Faith and Emma Boettger; eight great-grandchildren Trevor, Tyler, Caleb and Sheldon Kucy, Braeden and Rylan Hein, and Abigail and Cayden McLaughlin. He is also survived by one brother Marvin Boettger; a sister-in-law Marge Boettger; and brothers and sisters-in-law Sid and Beulah Heintz and Enos and Lucetta Stauffer; along with a host of other relatives and friends. Orvin was predeceased by three brothers, six sisters-in-law and three brothers-in-law. His love of singing was evident in the various choirs and quartets he was involved in over the years. He sang for the last time with the Tofield Men’s Chorus last week. Orvin was on the Mission Board of the Northwest Conference for many years and served on the MCC Alberta Board for seven years. He had a love of reading which was very evident on the bookshelves in their home. A special gift was his memory. When a family member couldn’t remember a name or location, he could be counted on to recall it. He especially had a way of remembering quotes, stories and sayings from decades ago. He was often heard saying, “That reminds me of...” Orvin and Elsie were caring and compassionate neighbours and, in 1974, they helped a neighbour whose husband was ill. A strong and valued friendship prevailed, and today Maria Wideman is a loved member of our family. Due to health issues in 2005, Orvin was much more limited in his short-term memory and the family is thankful for the additional seven years he lived after his surgeries. He is no longer bound by those limitations. His memory will always live in our hearts. A memorial service was held at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, March 1, 2012 at Salem Mennonite Church south of Tofield. Interment took place at Salem Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the MCC. Condolonces may be made at

The chorus traveled around Alberta singing at different events. Arnold enjoyed singing with his wife and family. He and Gladys sang together from the time they first met. In 1973, Arnold and Gladys moved to New Sarepta, AB where he started a manure spreading business with his son. He later sold his business and they bought the store, post office and mail delivery service in Ohaton, AB. Five years later, they sold the store and moved to Camrose, AB and started a TV rental business which he operated until retirement. Arnold was active in Messiah Lutheran Church where he sang in the choir and male chorus, and volunteered his services. He delivered Meals on Wheels and volunteered at Bethany for church services. In 2005, Arnold met and married Bernice Lanager Henkleman. They took up residence in Abbotsford, BC where Arnold and Bernice lived until 2011 when he moved back to Camrose.

Kelly Graves a Distinguished Alumnus By Dan Jensen

Augustana dean Allen Berger presented a Distinguished Alumnus award to Kelly Graves at the university's Community Awards banquet Feb. 29. "He is an experienced analyst, strategist and mentor with broad experience in energy policy, and business and customer relations," said Berger. "He has co-founded or founded several successful companies, developed nationally adopted environmental policies and continent spanning software suites. He is in high demand as a speaker and author and, in his spare time, he is outdoors a lot, building kayaks, enjoying the fresh air and the landscape." A student at Camrose Lutheran College from 1975 to 1977, Graves returned to CLC in 1981 to serve as communications and alumni relations officer, a position he held until 1988. Graves entered the first dot. com boom in the United States, where he helped shepherd a number of startup technology companies to success. He worked on some of the first shopping carts, geolocation services, social networks and online interactive agent tools, and was a key stakeholder in NetEffect Systems, which, in 2000, sold its web-based customer service system to popular search engine Ask Jeeves. In 2007 Graves was named entrepreneur-in-residence at Calgary Technologies Inc., where he spent a year providing innovators with input on their business plans and advice on marketing. While there, he visited the Cook Islands to lead their renewable energy program. "He has guided the Cook Islands' national energy committee to weigh local environmental concerns, with available technologies and potential risks, in developing a strategy with over 100 related energy initiatives that will transform national energy use in the Cook Islands over the next decade," said Berger.

Kelly Graves accepts a Distinguished Alumnus award from Augustana Dean Allen Berger.

As president of Ideas First, Graves worked extensively with over 200 public, corporate and private groups to develop policies, restructure companies, analyze issues and trends, develop measurement systems and patented software, mentored and trained many individuals, and managed public campaigns. "His clients have ranged from national governments to Fortune 500 companies to tiny startups," said Berger. Most recently, Graves cofounded Sweet Lightning, to focus on technology smart grids in developing nations, and Spacebourne, to examine the feasibility of a western Canadian low-earthorbit launch authority.

Graves is an active supporter of a large number of charities and non-profit activities aimed at equitable distribution of the world's resources and at lowering the ecological footprint of civilization. He is currently nearing completion of a graduate degree in astrophysics, concentrating on the search for extra-solar planets. Graves accepted his award by offering a personal perspective on why a liberal arts education works. "We need," he said, "to be able to hypothesize, to test, revise, and hypothesize again in a never ending cycle that challenges everything that society thinks and says, and continually produces a new and refined ver-

sion of what has been thought and said. We cannot hope to be equipped with the facts that we need for a life. Instead, we need a process so effective, so powerful, that the process can modify itself. Augustana provides you with a world class base of learning, the tools to modify it, the ability to modify the tools, and the wisdom to know when to do so. If you are willing to take what is offered this campus will hand you the best tools conceived. With those tools you can make the building, you can modify the building, you can modify the foundation, and you can even modify the tools themselves. "I can tell you from experience that Augustana works."


Have your say The Government of Alberta is asking Albertans for their help in charting a course for our province’s cultural future. The online survey, which is available at www. until March 28, echoes the questions and topics that delegates of Culture Forum 2012 recently covered. “Our culture and our cultural pursuits are intrinsic to everything we do and are vital to our quality of life,” said Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Culture and Community Services. “What makes a tight knit community is the people and the cultural organizations that bring them together. Hearing from a cross-section of community leaders directly involved in cultural programming and services was the first step. Now, it’s critical that we hear from others including those accessing these programs and services.” Culture Forum 2012 was held in Red Deer on February 24 and 25 and involved nearly 400 representatives of Alberta’s arts, heritage, nonprofit/voluntary, multicultural, creative industries and corporate sectors, as well as a delegation of youth. Delegates heard from presenters and participated in 18 concurrent workshops covering topics such as ‘What does a healthy and sustainable culture sector look like?’, ‘What are the challenges?’, ‘What strategies do you suggest?’, and ‘Where do you see priorities?’ A broad range of ideas, best practices and new innovations were discussed. A high-level summary of what was discussed is available at www.

Residents feel need for community transportation By Dan Jensen

The number of Camrose residents who feel there is a need for a community public transportation system is increasing. Ninety-two per cent of 1,019 residents surveyed in a recent Community Transportation Survey said there is a need for such a service, up from 75 per cent who felt the same way five years ago. "Over 1,000 citizens responded to this question, which is a considerable sample size relative to other City surveys such as the Ipsos Reid Community Satisfaction Survey, in which only 300 residents in total were polled," explained Camrose City councillor and Community Transportation Advisory Committee chair Brandon Blatz. Forty per cent of the 1,010 survey respondents said they would be very likely to use a public community transportation service, while six per cent said not at all likely. Forty-seven per cent of respondents felt that a fee of $2 would be an appropriate one-way fee. "While $2 is the preferred fee," states the survey commen-

tary, "it has to be expected that the lowest cost is most likely to be the most popular choice. Worthy of mention is that despite that, 53 per cent would consider a fee of $2.50 or more appropriate, though it appears support caps off rather drastically at $3." Fifteen per cent of respondents ranked their mobility within the city as a 10 on a scale of zero to ten, with 0 being not at all limited and 10 being very limited. Twenty-five per cent of respondents rated their mobility as being not at all limited. "Thirty-four per cent of residents selected seven out of ten or higher in terms of perceived lack of mobility," stated the commentary. Asked if they had accessible, affordable public transportation options available, 42 per cent of 1,037 respondents said they would take 1 to 5 more trips per week. Twenty-one per cent said they would take six to ten more trips per week, five per cent 11 to 15 more trips, two per cent 16 to 20 more trips, and two per cent more than 20 trips. Twenty-nine per cent said they would take no more trips than they do now.

"Sixty-three per cent of respondents forecast they would take between one and ten more trips within the city per week," said the commentary. "If more residents are able to get out and about the community more often they are able to shop at a greater variety of stores that they perhaps could not easily access before due to personal financial restrictions related to travel and other such impediments. The likelihood of a local economic benefit is amplified by the fact that riders can potentially decrease their regular travel expenses by using a community transit service, thereby leaving them with more disposable income. Having more spending money on hand is most likely to be spent at local businesses and in the local economy in general, providing a community-wide benefit. From a social perspective, an increase in community mobility and lower travel costs leads to a higher quality of life for city residents." The survey shows that demand for public transportation would be relatively consistent Monday to Friday, with a slight surge on Friday. Forty per cent of

1,028 respondents indicated they would use a service for medical appointments, 83 per cent said they would use it for shopping, 27 per cent for entertainment, 47 per cent for travelling to and from work, 37 per cent for social, and nine per cent for chauffeuring relatives or dependents. Forty-four per cent of 883 respondents said they would use a public transportation service from 6 to 9 a.m., 45 per cent from 9 a.m. to noon, 55 per cent from 12 noon to 4 p.m., 59 per cent from 4 to 7 p.m., 37 per cent from 7 to 10 p.m. and 29 per cent after 10 p.m. "The highest demand for service is in the afternoon or early evening," states the commentary. However, there remains significant ridership potential from 6 a.m. through to 10 p.m. The (Community Transportation Advisory) committee will be taking this into careful consideration in designing a service model. Operating hours are very expensive and every hour counts. Any transit service will need to run at maximum efficiency and work within realistic financial parameters. In addition, constant

ongoing evaluation and tweaking is a fundamental element necessary for the success of any transportation service." Fifty-two per cent of the respondents to the survey indicated they have an income of less than $30,000 per year. The survey was distributed in both online and paper form. "A very concentrated effort was made to get paper copies out to all senior living complexes and lodges, and we also made paper copies available at the library and other City owned and private facilities," said Blatz. The Community Transportation Advisory Committee is currently in the process of planning more opportunities for community input and involvement, and hopes to be able to hold a variation of a town hall style meeting in the near future, at which it wants to engage the community in dialogue. "When residents can come together and express their views and concerns, be they positive or negative, and have them addressed, that is when real grassroots bottom-up solutions can happen," said Blatz.

Buick Verano A whole new class of vehicle

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet experience. Power is available in abundance, thanks to an advanced 2.4 litre ECOTEC engine with Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing, and other leading-edge technologies. Paired with the standard electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission, the Verano engine is also notable for its fuel efficiency, with a 6.2 litres per 100 km highway fuel consumption rating. A four-wheel disc braking system with ABS and intelligent brake assist, full-function traction control and the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system are all standard to help keep you firmly in control, year-round.

By Dan Jensen

The all-new Verano at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC brings the signature style, silence and luxury of today's Buick to a whole new class of vehicle. "Verano offers the advanced engineering, thoughtful amenities and premium materials of a fine luxury sedan, yet, thanks to its trim exterior size, also provides all the advantages of a smaller car, including easy manoeuverability in city traffic, stress-free parking, and outstanding fuel efficiency," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer Will McClellan.

Comprehensive approach to safety

Form follows flow

Visually, the most striking aspect of the new Verano is the sheer harmony and refinement of the exterior design. The lines flow in graceful, well-controlled curves from the black-chrome waterfall grille all the way down to the sculpted rear bumper, and the coupe-like arch of the roof adds a sense of style and drama that's rarely found in a sedan. There's also a story behind Verano's superb paint finish. It's applied via a leading-edge eco-friendly process that delivers exceptional, long-lasting shine while simultaneously reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Quiet interior

Ease into Verano's comfortable and supportive driver's seat and everything you see and touch contributes to an impression of luxury. So does everything you hear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or rather, everything you don't hear. The Verano team took Buick's renowned QuietTuning techniques to new heights, with components like triple-sealed doors, dualdensity carpets and a headliner made with no fewer than five layers of acoustic insulation material. The end product is a cabin that's been described as library-quiet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even recording-studio-quiet. "Imagine a mobile sanctuary in a noisy world and you've got the idea," said McClellan. The sense of space you enjoy inside Verano is no illusion. In fact, there's more room here for passengers than you'll find in either the Lexus IS 350 or the Acura TSX. Thanks to 1,000 hours of painstaking development,

the seats are exceptionally comfortable and supportive. Ambient lighting creates a welcoming, sophisticated atmosphere, and thoughtful amenities, like an available heated steering wheel, add to the pleasure of the driving experience. Then there's the impressive quality of the materials used to trim the cabin. Wherever you look you'll find warm wood tones, gleaming metallic accents, ribbon fabrics and, if you wish, seating surfaces upholstered with a fine grade of leather. Verano puts a whole new generation of infotainment and communications technologies at your service. Take the new Buick IntelliLink sound system, for example. It includes Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone and wireless audio connectivity, a USB port, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and a 178 mm full-colour high-definition touch-screen display, and it can be teamed with the available ninespeaker Bose premium audio system. And that's just the beginning. When linked to your smartphone, it allows you to stream signals from sources like Stitcher Smart Radio and use simple voice commands to initiate phone calls, select radio stations and much more. Engaging drive

Spirited performance, confident handling and a finely controlled ride are all integral components in the Verano

The goal of the Verano development team was not simply to create a car that would be the most luxurious in its class, but also the safest. Verano features ten standard airbags, more than any competitor in its class. Advanced steels make up more than 60 per cent of the body structure surrounding the cabin with a remarkably robust safety cage engineered to absorb energy and resist intrusion in the event of a crash. Verano is also the only compact luxury sedan with OnStar's Automatic Crash Notification feature, which can automatically dispatch the appropriate emergency services to your precise location after a crash, even if you're unable to respond to the OnStar advisor's call. OnStar's Turn-by-Turn Navigation is the most userfriendly navigation system available. You simply tell an OnStar advisor where you want to go and clear, audible directions to your destination are downloaded directly to your vehicle. Accessories

Express your individuality with genuine Buick accessories for your new Verano. To ensure outstanding fit, finish and performance, all Buick accessories are engineered to the same high standards as your Verano.

The beginning of skiing history in Camrose came from a dream. Ole Baaken, who came from Norway to America, requested the land agent to find a spot where there was a valley, a stream, and hills that could be used for skiing. Ed Thompson, the agent, suggested Camrose


area, then called Stony Creek. Even then, Norway was famous for skiing. The ski jump was built in 1911 on the land of Ed Thompson, the land agent, and first used in 1912. Many immigrants were arriving from Norway at this time and the first Camrose Ski Club was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fram Ski

Vikings earn silver medals, advance to nationals By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings men's curling team came up a little short in the final game of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference provincials. But, that didn't matter. They had already earned a trip to nationals. The Augustana men's team includes skip Kendall Warawa, third Kyle Leach, second Wyatt Warawa, lead Dillon Wing and spare Ethan Laverty. Both Red Deer College and Augustana earned a berth to nationals in Peterborough, Ontario, March 21 to 24. "Our chances were as good as anybody coming into provincials," said Kendall. "The competition here was stiff and anytime you go into provincials like this, all of the teams are good. We won our third game and the draw to the button, which gave us the tie-breaker advantage. We won the 1-2 game that put us straight into the final." Augustana knocked off Red Deer in the game, but the foursome won the 2-3 game to have another crack at the Vikings. "It was a really good game and it came down to the last shots to decide the outcome," said Kendall. "This is my fifth year with the Vikings, so this means a lot to me. This is the best we have finished, and it is my last year, so I want to go out with a bang. It will be fun and a good experience." Ontario will have extra teams because they are hosting. "To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what to expect at nationals," Kendall added. "All provinces have strong teams and we are just going out there to have some fun and curl the best we can." The skip was thrown a curve when his third didn't return for the second semester of university. "I have a brand new third and my lead and spare are new this year. My brother is playing second and that is fun. It is good to be able to teach these guys a few things. They have come together in a short time frame.

At the beginning, I'm thinking this is one of the weakest teams that I have curled with, but they really learned quickly and work as a team." He broke it down to each individual curler. "Our goal was that if our lead could out-play the other team's lead and so on, we would have some success." Kendall hopes to use this experience as a launching pad for moving into the competitive men's curling field. "The best thing about going to higher level of competition, is that you get to know a lot of people and make connections. I want to get on a team that will be competitive." The Hay Lakes curler had the opportunity to be on the host team in provincials. "It's great to play at home and in the community. You have moms and dads able to watch, which is nice for everyone. We are close with the mixed team and played against them in practice. It was great to see them do well at home too. I'm ready glad we could pull this out this weekend in my last year." With a three-week break, the rink will be keeping in shape by practicing and playing more games. "I like to play skins games because it challenges you to make your shot. Even if you lose an end, you need to come right back and make your next shot," said Kendall. "Other Augustana curlers and playing in the local men's league have really helped us." The problem with going to nationals is raising funds for students in just three weeks. "We have a program called adopt a Viking. You can find information on the web site. The donation is tax deductible. We encourage people to do that to help us off- set some of the costs. Augustana will help us with about half, but it doesn't cover everything that we need." For more information contact the Augustana athletic department at 780-679-1195.

Augustana retains curling crown By Murray Green

Augustana Vikings mixed curling team skip Andrew Evans watches his rock sail down the ice at the college provincial championships in Camrose. The rink won the title for the second straight season.

The mixed curling rink at Augustana is in select company. The curling team captured its second straight title at the Rose City Curling Club on Feb. 26. "We played pretty well all weekend," said skip Andrew Evans. "We lost to Grant MacEwan, but we shouldn't have. It felt like we could have won every game." Grande Prairie was the team to beat coming into provincials. "They have a good skip, back end; well the whole team is good," added Andrew. " They were the biggest challenge and we knew that coming in." "We miss every once in a while, but we knew that we could curl with any team here," said second Chad Szott. Despite winning the provincial crown in back-to-back years, the team had to settle for ending the season at that point. "It's not fair that the men's and women's teams move on to nationals and we don't. I don't know why they would go two-thirds of the way

with nationals," said Andrew. "Being the Alberta champion is pretty cool though." Chad doesn't want to stop at two. "Now we want to win it for a third time." The championship seasons provided different experiences. "In the first year, we just got on a roll and we didn't expect to win. This year, we wanted it right from the start," said Andrew. "We wanted to win it more this year because it was held in Camrose and everyone's family is here," added Chad. "Family drove from Timbuktu or wherever to watch and we didn't want to disappoint them. It added a little pressure, but we just went out to make our shots and didn't worry about it while we were on the ice." Alison Owens is the third on the team and Mari McLachlin joined the rink as the lead. "Mari was on the team two years ago, so we knew that she was a good curler and would fit right in," explained Andrew. "Mari's not sure where she will end up next year yet. We might have to win it

three years in a row with a different lead each year." The colleges are working on bringing back mixed curling nationals in time for next season. "Absolutely, we want to be there. We can expect more competition if there is nationals," said Andrew. "This is a big accomplishment for us and Augustana." Chad enjoys winning, but admitted winning provincials is special. "Winning bonspiels is good, but this is the big one. This is the one we wanted to win as our goal." With the men's team placing second and moving on to nationals and the women's team just missing the final bonspiel, Augustana has set the bar a little higher for next year. "I think we have a good program at Augustana and should be strong again next year." Both Mari and Chad made the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference Curling team, along with women's second Sarah McCrae.

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

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

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

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

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

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

County salutes Banack, Luz at awards banquet By Murray Green

The Camrose County Agricultural Awards Banquet will honour two outstanding contributors to the region on March 13 at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. Humphrey Banack and Mildred Luz will be inducted to the Agricultural Wall of Fame. In addition, Kalista Sherbaniuk will be recognized as the scholarship winner from the communications committee and Century Farm Awards will be presented to those families who have been on the same farm site for 100 or more years. The Wall of Fame salutes individuals who have made the county a better place because of their tireless efforts. Whether locally, provincially or nationally, Humphrey Banack has displayed sincere and passionate leadership in helping to improve agriculture to the benefit of farm families. Humphrey and his wife Teressa have successfully farmed and raised a family in the Round Hill area. He was in the pork business for many years and served as a delegate with the Alberta Pork Producers. Humphrey also had a cow/calf operation in the past, and is now strongly focusing on grain and oil seed operations. He has exhibited wholehearted commitment and dedication to his community by being integrally involved in all aspects of life and organizations within the Round Hill community. On a more public scale, Humphrey has carried out leadership roles in provincial and national agricultural organizations such as the Wild Rose Agricultural Producers Association as president, and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture as second vice-president. His vision for a vibrant, profitable and sustainable agriculture industry, coupled with his efforts to bridge the gap between urban consumers and primary producers, is truly worthy of recognition and appreciation. Humphrey has served his Round Hill and area community on numerous committees and boards including the Elks, agricultural society, homecoming, recreation, church and numerous others. Mildred Luz (1927–2009) was named to the Wall of Fame posthumously. She was one of those individuals best characterized by the phrase “salt of the earth". She left a legacy of lifelong commitment and dedication to her farm, to raising a family and to supporting her community. "Mildred strongly believed in the value and strength of the farm family, rural community and the contribution of women to both," said Heather Broughton, who nominated her. Continued on page 40

A graduate of Olds College, Mildred used her education, organizational skills and everlasting enthusiasm to raise a family, operate a successful farm with her husband Art, and provide leadership to agriculture in Alberta through membership in various organizations. Her most cherished membership was in the Heather Brae Women's Institute where she remained an active member, with perfect attendance for over 50 years. Another of Mildred's passions was the Fall Focus. With her leadership, Fall Focus grew from 80 participants to 375. "She strongly represented the needs of area farm women and focused on the issues that they faced on a regular basis. Mildred was dedicated to the Fall Focus conference, which made a valuable contribution to the fabric of our rural community by drawing women together to learn, laugh and reconnect with other rural women," added Heather. In 2002, she received the Golden Jubilee Award. This award is given to citizens who have made significant contributions to Canada, a province, or a community that helped to improve the lives of fellow citizens. Characterized by quiet dignity, natural grace and terrific leadership and mentoring skills, Mildred has left an indelible mark on her community and family and our society. Mildred also used her skills to help with the Sifton Recreation Association, the Alberta Senior games, the MS Bike Tour, as a rural enumerator and returning officer, and with the Canadian Cancer Society, to name a few.
