The new provincial budget strikes a blow to the viability of communities across Alberta. With a $24 billion infrastructure deficit already dogging communities, funding cuts will make it impossible for municipalities to fix core infrastructure, deliver the services citizens expect and address increasing growth pressures.

Unless a solution that ensures long-term stable and predictable funding can be found, resources will continue to fall short of meeting the needs of citizens in critical areas such as fixing potholes and sidewalks and addressing water and sewage challenges. “Accelerating the review of municipalities’ constitution,

City council tables third reading of redistricting bylaw By Dan Jensen

City council has tabled until June 17 a bylaw to redistrict a pair of lots at 3505- and 3605-50 Street from R2-R2L single family residential district to I institutional district. The tabling will give City administration time to prepare a report for council consideration. The first would outline the amount of time required to complete an area redevelopment plan or concept plan for area constrained by the two railroad lines and the ring road. The other, to be undertaken in consolidation with the applicant for redistricting and the concerned citizens who are opposed to it, would outline the identified concerns by the redistricting applicant and its validity with respect to the land use bylaw and other legislation. "I am opposed to defeating the motion (to give third reading to the bylaw) outright at this point," said Councillor Greg Wood in his Feb. 19 motion to table. "I think this keeps enough pressure on everyone to have some dialogue." Reasons for redistricting

The application for redistricting was submitted by the Catholic Archdiocese for the purpose of building a church on the property. Churches are permitted uses in an institutional district, but a discretionary use in the existing residential district. "The applicant has advised that construction of the church may not come to fruition for possibly five to ten years and they

would like certainty of being able to use the lands for a church at this time prior to finalizing their offer to purchase these lands," said a report prepared for council by City director of planning and development services Jeff Laurien. Council gave second reading to the redistricting bylaw during a December 3 meeting with the stipulation that a caveat be registered against the lots for a ten-year period to ensure that if a church is not built on the property that the rezoning would revert back to single family residential. Council also at the meeting granted Gary Cunningham an opportunity to present concerns regarding the redistricting and the church at its Feb. 19 meeting. Presentation

Making the presentation on behalf of Cunningham was Marcus Paterson, from ISL Engineering and Land Services, who submitted a number of reasons that council should defeat third reading. Paterson's first point was that the current application to redistrict is an effort to secure certainty for the applicant without providing any certainty to the community, adjacent neighbours or council. He said that other, more appropriate alternatives exist that would provide the certainty and elimination of the risk sought by all the stakeholders involved, and that the use of a caveat does not provide long term security. "Redesignation as proposed

by this application could allow any of the permitted (institutional) uses to be developed with no options for input on discussion. "Much can change in five to seven years." Paterson's second point was that the statutory municipal development plan (MDP) policies stipulate considerations specific to institutional areas that may not have been followed with the application. According to him, an amendment to the MDP, supported by a concept plan, is required for new major institutions over 1.2 hectares (three acres in size). Paterson further noted that significant new development proposals in the built up area may be required to submit a context analysis and undertake a community and consultation program to ensure that new development is coordinated with adjacent buildings and the neighbourhood context in accordance with municipal goals and policies. "Major institutions significantly impact surrounding communities. A church on this scale on a site this large is a major institution." Paterson's third point was that the current proposal lacks sensitivity to the adjacent properties and the surrounding area, and that concerns such as transportation, servicing, pedestrian mobility, compatibility of use, population density, sustainable land use and future connections would be best addressed by a

concept plan or area structure plan. Paterson said there are better alternatives to achieve the outcomes for which every party is looking. "We are looking to ensure there has been proper engagement and meaningful conversation, we are looking for certainty both for the church and for the community. If we are talking about the risk, if development happens two, five, seven or ten years down the road, what is going to happen? What does that open the door to if plans change or things fall through? What are the risks the community and the city are taking on to enable this land purchase?" Paterson questioned whether the applicant has given enough consideration to the context of the development and how it would disrupt the lifestyle to which the residents have become accustomed. "Part of the conversation we have had with our clients is that it has been a difficult struggle to get information from the church. We specifically called the architect and asked if we could have a conversation. The architect has said that he has been instructed not to speak to us, so it has been a challenge." Not set in stone

St. Francis Xavier building committee chair Keith Elliott reported that none of the concept designs that have been requested by the planning department have been set in stone, and that a computer generated report show-

ing shadows generated by the church buildings are based on the amount of sunlight on the shortest day of the year. Elliott also noted that the church committee has had discussions with the neighbours on two separate locations, including once at an open house. "We have had a consultation. We were not under the impression this was to become a negotiation between us and the neighbours. We were under the impression that it was a matter of city redesign, following city policies and procedures that were laid out. We have done what we were supposed to do and felt that was enough." Elliott said to compare the church development to the ongoing Augustana development is a stretch. "We are not going that big. We are going to build a church on that site. A large part of the land has to be used for parking because of City demands for parking for a church." Appeal process

Laurien explained that if the planning department approves the church application for development, there would still be an appeal process available to anyone who feels aggrieved by the decision. "They (the church) would still have to go through the development permit application regardless of the zoning for the property and any decision made by the planning department could still be appealed to the subdivision appeal board.

Tender awarded for Bawlf school Diane Hutchinson, Communications, Battle River School Division

The construction tender for a new school in Bawlf has now been awarded. The project to replace the entire Bawlf School, which was announced and granted funding from the provincial government in the spring of 2011, after Battle River School Division requested funding assistance to upgrade the building’s mechanical and electrical systems, is being overseen by Alberta Infrastructure. The project has moved through the consultation and architectural design phases and now the firm of Aman Builders has been awarded the construction contract. The new school will have a similar capacity to the existing site, but be designed on one level, with updated systems and flexible spaces for student learning. The school will be energy efficient and LEEDS certified. Groundbreaking is expected to take place in a few weeks, with a tentative completion date of fall 2014. Sifton students moving across the street

The Battle River School Division board of trustees has passed a motion of support for an administration recommendation to move the Grade 6 classes at Ecole Sifton School in Camrose across the street for the 20132014 year.

This move is a short-term measure designed to alleviate the immediate space problem at Ecole Sifton School, but is also part of a big picture, longer-term re-alignment discussion for all city of Camrose schools, which will take place this spring. The goal is to balance attendance numbers between the school sites. BRSD’s French Immersion elementary school is currently over capacity and, with the number of students expected to start Kindergarten at the site next year, there simply aren’t enough classroom spaces to accommodate all the children. The interim move will see Grade 6 students from both the English and French programs re-locate to Charlie Killam School next year, the same site they would typically go to attend Grades 7 to 9. These younger students will visit their elementary alma mater regularly, to make use of the school playground and conduct projects with their former schoolmates. BRSD Schools meet and exceed provincial requirements

Officials from Alberta Education visited Battle River School Division recently, to conduct their annual review of the school division’s educational results. This visit is part of the regular compliance process all school divisions have with the provincial government. The visit was a posi-

tive one, with the school division receiving positive feedback and congratulations for meeting or exceeding provincial parameters for achievement. Board / Admin planning day a great conversation

Members of BRSD’s board of trustees, division leadership team and the administrators of all schools spent the day together on February 22, talking about the future. The day included discussion about the significant curriculum re-design coming from Alberta Education; updates on how inclusive education services are continuing to change; how evolving assessment practices fit into these new realities; and suggestions about how to keep moving forward. According to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Larry Payne, the day featured “lots of honest conversation, great professional debate and feedback among educational leaders and good ideas about moving our school division ahead.” Education Minister met with school boards

School board leaders from across Alberta met with Education Minister Jeff Johnson in late February to hear his proposal for reaching an agreement with the Alberta Teachers' Association. School boards were generally supportive and saw the proposal as a good starting place for reaching an agreement, but the ATA rejected the offer at the end of last month.

Councillor John Howard provided clarification when he noted that if council defeated third reading of the bylaw, the subdivision appeal board would have to decide whether or not there could be a church on the land. "If we make a decision tonight and the bylaw is passed, that decision is taken away from the subdivision appeal board," said Howard. "They can decide on the size of the church, the colour of the church, but they can't decide on whether it can ever be a church." Councillor Wood said the process that the City is going through with the redistricting circumvents the well informed and educated planning department. "That is what concerns me a little bit. We seem to have a little bit of spot zoning happening out there. This isn't the first development application that has come for that area. We all have a very good vision for what that area should be and so a discussion on an area redevelopment plan, or a concept plan at the minimum, makes an abundance of sense to me, subject to what that may cost the City."

A new way to look at your power bill

Local Entrepreneurs Launch New Electricity Retailer that Returns Profits to the Community Submitted by Pam Chamberlain CAMROSE, AB – There’s a new kid in town when it comes to electricity retail, ready to change the way customers think about utility bills. Longtime Camrose residents Russell and Denise Hawkins have launched Camrose Energy Corp, a local electricity retail company busy signing up new customers and working to change the way Camrosians think about their energy bills. Russell and Denise “Electricity is an essential service,” Russell says. “Profits shouldn’t be sent to faraway shareholders. It should be kept local, bettering the community. That’s what we’re set to do.” Through its Community Alliance Program, Camrose Energy is partnering with Camrose-based charitable organizations to return a portion of customer fees back to the community. It works like this: When customers pay their bills, 10 per cent of the electricity profits are donated to a community program. Each month, the bill shows how much went to the customer’s Community Ally, such as the Canadian Mental Health Association or the Battle River Watershed Alliance. “We are excited about how easy this makes it for people to help the community,” Denise says, “Just by paying bills they already pay.” The rates are lower than those charged by current retailers in the Camrose area. “We don’t have the overhead that bigger companies do,” says Denise. “We operate from a home office, we don’t have a large staff, and our billing is electronic, eliminating paper and postage costs.” SPECIAL OFFER Sign up by March 31, 2013 to get $10 off your first bill and $10 donated to the charity of your choice. Signing up is easy. There’s no fixed-term contract. Simply fill out an online form at camroseenergy.com. Camrose Energy takes care of transferring the account from your current provider. Both floating rates and fixed rates for fixed terms are offered. Electricity prices are at a 10-year low and expected to drop. Denise

and Russell are advising their customers to choose a floating rate. You can always change rates or switch to another provider with just 10 days’ notice. “Last month, our customers saved on average $17.50-$20.00 per household,” said Denise. Chartered accountant Greg Joyce, a new customer, calculated what he would have saved in 2012 with Camrose Energy: “Based on the rate of $0.0865, I would have saved $150 with Camrose Energy versus the Epcor variable rate plus another $8 on administration fees over a Greg Joyce 12-month period.” “It’s surprising how many people don’t fully understand their electricity bills,” Russell says. Half of an electricity bill is regulated, the prices going for distribution and delivery charges from the wire provider – FortisAlberta, in the case of Camrose. The other half is unregulated with charges going to the retailer. This is where Camrosians have a choice. To help potential customers better understand the source and distribution of their electricity, camroseenergy.com has a webpage called “Electricity 101.” If you have questions, Russell is passionate about talking electricity. Denise and Russell are committed to a community-friendly business. “We are focusing our business on the Camrose area because this is our home and we know lots of hard-working people here who deserve the best rates possible on their electricity.” Not only will customers benefit, but the community will, too. “Camrose Energy’s profits will stay in the community. It isn’t that way with the big energy retailers, whose profits may leave the province or even the country. We’re grateful that our Community Alliance Program is helping local organizations improve our community. We want to keep as much money in the local economy as possible.” Contact: Camrose Energy Corp, Russell and Denise Hawkins info@camroseenergy.com www.camroseenergy.com Denise’s Cell: 780-781-4115 Russell’s Cell: 780-781-4116

What constitutes an effective saving strategy? While the specific approach will be different for every investor, successful saving consists of a few essential components. 1. Identify what you are saving for. Saving is easier when you are motivated — and that means having clear objectives in sight. 2. Determine how much you can save. The next step is to create your household budget — or review your existing one. How much do you currently have allocated to saving? Can you increase that amount? 3. Choose a solution. The solutions that are best for you will depend on a number of factors: how much you have to save right now, how frequently and how much you plan to add to your savings, and how quickly you may need access to your money.

You have probably heard the urban legend of “writing off” everyday expenses on your tax return. You may feel like you are missing out on deductions but in reality it is usually a myth. For example, the tax court ruled that haircut expenses cannot be deducted against employment income even if your job requires you to get one every two weeks. Office clothing, dry cleaning and commuting costs like parking and gas are considered personal expenses. Basically, if you are an employee with a regular pay cheque, there are only a few circumstances where you can claim expenses on your tax return. Thankfully, there is a little relief for regular working Canadians. The Canada Employment Amount will help with some of your expenses related to employment. If you were employed at any time in 2012 – even if it was just a summer job – you are entitled to claim the credit. Canada Revenue Agency does allow you to claim auto expenses, business travel, meals and lodging, supplies and home work space expenses under certain conditions. However, your employment contract must require you to pay for the expenses. And you need to have a Form T2200 Declaration of Conditions of Employment signed and certified by your employer. In the case of auto and travel expenses, you must be required to do your job outside of the office or in different locations. To be eligible for the claim, make sure you did not receive a non-taxable travel allowance from your employer. If you want to claim meals, you have to be out of town for at least 12 hours and are limited to 50 percent of the overall bill. In order to claim home work space expenses, you must meet one of two conditions. Either the work space must be the place where you principally perform your job, or you must use the space exclusively on an ongoing basis for meeting customers or other people for your job. Expenses you can claim include a reasonable percentage of your rent, utilities and home repairs and maintenance. Calculations are based on the total square-footage of your home and must be prorated according to the percentage used for business purposes. If the work space is not used exclusively for employment purposes, it must be further prorated based on the amount of time it is used for personal use. So it would be hard to justify an addition of a new bedroom in your home maintenance costs. Working on commission may allow you to deduct more expenses. Salespeople can claim advertising and promotion expenses as well as 50 per cent of client entertainment. They can also claim a reasonable percentage of insurance and property taxes as home work space expenses in addition to the utilities, rent and maintenance allowed to other employees. However, only self-employed taxpayers may claim mortgage interest. So the answer to the question ‘Can I write it off as an employment expense?’ is usually no. The Income Tax Act is very specific about what employees can deduct on their taxes. If you do qualify for any of the deductions, make sure you keep your receipts. You have to be able to support any claims you make when Canada Revenue Agency comes knocking at your doorstep.

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and a night that I don’t say goodnight, but I have peace of mind knowing that you’re with Dad, not working for every breath that you take. I have wonderful memories of our heart-to-heart talks, holidays together and family gettogethers. We are all so honoured to have had you for our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, sister and friend. It just breaks my heart that I’ve lost my mother, my best friend, and I can’t kiss and hug you. We’ll always be thankful to God for taking you peacefully, and we’ll be together again.

Lyndon (Lyndy) Willis Lyle Olson

CAMROSE & DAYSLAND

November 20, 1936 – March 4, 2013 Lyndon Olson of New Norway, Alberta passed away on Monday, March 4, 2013 at the age of 76 years. Lyndon (Lyndy) was born on November 20, 1936 in the house on the Olson family farm. He was the second son of Elmer and Cecelia Olson. Lyndy attended Baldenstein School, and graduated from the Camrose Lutheran College. On October 9, 1965, Lyndy married the love of his life, Elaine Hendricksen. They raised two daughters, Kristi and Lynnette. Lyndy was a great husband, father, and “Papa”. He had a gift for telling stories and cracking silly jokes. Family gatherings were always a time filled with good conversation and plenty of laughter. Lyndy had a passion for radio and electronics. He was fortunate to work in a job that combined both of these interests. His career as Chief Engineer of the radio station CFCW spanned over 42 years. Lyndy was very involved with his community. He taught radio to the air cadet squadrons for 12 years. He also taught amateur radio classes, and approximately 42 students received their license under his instruction. He was an active member of the Rose City Amateur Radio Club. He was a lifelong member of Messiah Lutheran Church. He served on council, taught Sunday School, studied Stephen Ministry and participated in many other forms of faithful service. Lyndy had many hobbies and interests and enjoyed working with his hands. He did all the plumbing, wiring and finishing carpentry in their acreage home. He also enjoyed yardwork and gardening. In later years, Lyndy took an interest in metal lathing. He made several miniature steam engines and other metal parts. He was an amateur Ham Radio operator for 52 years, and thoroughly enjoyed listening to the air waves and talking to people all over the world. Lyndy had a deep appreciation for music and, as much as he loved playing the electric “gretsch”, he grew fond of the classical guitar. He had hours of enjoyment learning pieces by Segovia, Tarrega and, of course, Chet Atkins. He shared his joy of music with others and played the guitar for many community events. Lyndy had a deep Christian faith and he was a positive influence on his family and friends. He gave freely the gifts of love, generosity, thoughtfulness and wisdom. We cherish fondly his zest for life, his gentle spirit and his sense of humor. Lyndy will be lovingly remembered by his wife Elaine; daughters Kristi Olson and Lynnette (Brett) Woodrow; granddaughters Brielle and Anikah; sister Donna (Robert) Luce; brother Byron (Penny); brother Theodore (Joanna); brother Daryl (Leslie); brother-in-law Dean (Elsa) Hendricksen; sister-in-law Kathy (James) Lee; and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins. Lyndy’s presence in our lives will be greatly missed. A Funeral Service was held on 1:00 p.m., Monday, March 11, 2013 from Messiah Lutheran Church with Bev Swanson and Rev. Ken Grambo officiating. Interment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Augustana Music Conservatory, The Kidney Foundation, or to Messiah Lutheran Church.

A LIFE WELL LIVED

Roger Millard December 12, 1945 – February 27, 2013 Roger Millard died on Wednesday February 27, 2013 of an embolism related to stage IV cancer. His strong will to live, the love of his daughter and wife, and the support of his cherished friends pulled him through the two years of living with a diagnosis of cancer. He loved the outdoors. Cross country skiing, downhill skiing, white water kayaking and hiking were among his favourite activities. His daughter and wife were his world and loved to venture into the great outdoors with him. His signature joking around, quick wit and giving spirit will never be forgotten. It was difficult to find a good comeback to his repartee. He was a character, and people either really liked him or really didn’t; few people were indifferent. He loved having meaningful conversations with his friends and was always readily available when they needed someone to talk to. He worked as a social worker in the area of addictions for 43 years. He had great compassion for the people he worked with. Roger had developed a deep spiritual side, overcame psychological abuse and developed a community of support. Roger embraced life with everything in him and always encouraged others to do the same. His favourite quote was: “Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” A funeral service was held on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. from Camrose United Church with Rev. Alan Richards officiating. Cremation has taken place. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Amnesty International, Sierra Legal Defense Fund, or Foster Plan Canada.

Four years ago, we said goodbye to you, Four years since you got your wings and flew So many things have changed Since the day you went away, Still we miss you every day. Until we meet again, We will have good days and bad, We will continue to talk to you Because it makes us not so sad. For you, our Wife, Mom, Grandma, Niece and Friend, We will smile a great big smile And laugh a great big laugh … Because we know you are watching. Lovingly remembered and forever missed, Dennis, Con, Krista, Larry, Preston, Brad, Brandi, Desyrae, Keandra, Aunty Iva and Uncle Mel

You never said I’m leaving You never said goodbye, You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why. A million times I needed you A million times I cried, If love alone could have saved you You never would have died. In life, I loved you dearly In death, I love you still, In my heart, I hold a place That only you can fill. It broke my heart to lose you But you didn’t go alone, As part of me went with you The day God took you home. Missing you always, Deb, Desirae, Gracie, Jeremy and Sheila

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

Food or sprawl? I cringe every time I hear about good, arable farmland being annexed to allow for urban expansion. Two of last week’s news stories caused me concern: one was the City of Edmonton’s decision to allow urban development in its Horse Hills area which now produces garden fresh vegetables; the other was the announcement that the City of Edmonton is working on plans to annex 15,600 hectares of the finest arable land south of its present boundary. The expansion would include the Edmonton International Airport plus what is described as prime agricultural land. I know that growing numbers of people need homes in which to live and industries to provide them with employment. I also know that food is essential for their survival and therein lies the risk when we destroy farmland. Well publicized trends in agriculture have shown that the amount of arable land is decreasing while world population is increasing at an accelerating rate. When good cropland is covered with pavement and buildings, it is not recoverable – it’s a one-way trip! In addition, we have diverted some of our food production to the development of biofuels. Statistics Canada, Census of Agriculture, tells us that “over time, arable land available per person is decreasing worldwide.” We are also told that the rate of improvement in farm productivity has been on the decline. In the 1930s, over 30 percent of Canadians lived on farms; today only two percent do. Of the 98 percent who are urban dwellers, many may not connect food on the table with farm produce. As well, they may not realize the economic value of a healthy agriculture industry. Agriculture counts for one out of eight jobs in Canada and is the nation’s fifth largest industry. It employs scientists, technologists, farmers, suppliers, processors, transporters, grocers and restaurant workers. In fairness, it is important to note that the City of Edmonton is just one of many other thriving cities to gobble up prime agricultural land for urban development. Our own city – Camrose – does it, too. What’s the alternative? Growing upward rather than outward. That solution poses a dilemma for Albertans. We, who like wide open spaces, don’t want to grow upward; we prefer to spread outward and live in single family dwellings, with our own private landscaped yards, rather than in high rises. Eventually, we will have to choose: food or sprawl? Hopefully, foresight and wisdom will prevail before it’s too late.

Watoto: saving widows and orphans We had the privilege of hosting the people of Camrose at the Watoto Children's Choir performance in Grace Lutheran Church. Your response was overwhelming. Your generous gifts to Watoto Ministries will save many lives. God bless you all. The children in the choir are wonderful. Some of them have visible scars. If overcoming adversity builds character then these kids certainly have character. Ranging in age from six to 13, all have lost one or both parents. Some were just abandoned, tossed away by parents who could not or would not care for them. Yet here they are, cheerful and upbeat, working

to help their brothers and sisters in Christ. Each tour, each performance, means more lives saved, more kids like them having the opportunity to live and learn and become the leaders of tomorrow. These children dream of a better future. They dream of an Africa free of war, famine and disease and see themselves as part of the solution. They hope to be teachers, doctors, lawyers – future leaders of a continent in need of good leaders. The founders of Watoto Ministries, Gary and Marilyn Skinner, have a Canadian connection. In 1979, Gary and Marilyn left Canada as missionaries to Zambia. In 1972, Gary moved their young family to Kampala, the war-torn capital of Uganda, to found an English-speaking church. Today, over 17,000 people attend one of the 20 weekend worship celebrations at eight district worship points. In 1988, Gary visited a 79year-old widow. AIDS had killed her husband and six of her children. Her last surviving child, a daughter, was dying of the same disease. He recalled the Bible verse, James 1:27, "The religion that God the Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphan and widow in their distress and to keep one's self from being polluted by the

word." Watoto Child Care Ministries was begun in 1994 as a result. Watoto now operates several children's communities, women's homes and a children's hospital in Uganda. With Watoto they receive food, shelter, medical care and education. To those who have nothing, to receive a little is a blessing. For we who have so much, more is seldom enough. We, who are blessed with wealth, fear the future. We are filled with dread of what may come but never seems to arrive. Watching these children, knowing they have endured the hardship we fear is a bittersweet experience. While I am distressed by their past, I am inspired by their hope. Perhaps it is better to suffer a little and have hope for the future than it is to have comfort and fear the future. The people of Camrose and area contributed over $4,500 to the work of Watoto Ministries. We also received gifts of sports equipment from the Home Hardware distribution centre and Canadian Tire, Camrose, as well as the use of a generator from A-1 Rentals. The world is a little better today. Dave Gosse, Camrose

On the massacre of children Second Thought

On December 13, 2012, 20 children and six adults were fatally shot by a lone gunman in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, U.S.A. Next to the Virginia Tech massacre of 2007 in which thirtytwo people perished, the Sandy Hook tragedy was the deadliest shooting in U.S. history. Not surprisingly, this event with its particularly vulnerable victims, has provoked much discussion about the general level of gun violence in U.S. society and the specific issue of what action the U.S. government might take to reduce it. It is confusing, though, to think of the U.S. government as a body that would act against the indiscriminate killing of children – particularly a U.S. government controlled by the Democratic Party. In 1996, the then Secretary of State Madelaine Albright was asked on news program whether she thought that the death of 500,000 Iraqi children as a result of UN Sanctions was “worth the price.” Her famous response was to say that it was a “hard choice, but the price we think is worth it.” Last year, the current U.S. President awarded Ms. Albright the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Thankfully, the current US administration has not implemented policies which have cost the lives of so many children as were lost in Iraq. Yet, President Obama’s record on this score is far from spotless. Last Spring, his own party released

Roger Milbrandt, English, Augustana Faculty, University of Alberta

to the New York Times details of weekly meetings called “Kill Tuesdays” in which Obama, in consultation with his advisors, decides which persons on a list of suspected enemies of the United States will be eliminated through drone attacks. These attacks occur constantly and decisions about the human targets never involve formal charges or legal process. The attacks are often “successful” in that they kill people the U.S. government has decreed should die. But they frequently take the lives of people who simply

happen to be near the intended victims at the time of the attack. These “collateral” victims are often children. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, between 2004 and 2013 drone strikes have killed 1,128 people in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, including 216 children. One of the child-victims was Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-yearold US citizen, killed in Yemen in 2011. His father, Anwar, a Muslim cleric and an allegedly legitimate target, had been killed a few weeks earlier. When asked during the recent U.S. presidential election campaign to account for young Abdulrahman’s death, a White House spokesman explained "I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the wellbeing of their children." The implication seemed to be that the children of people the U.S. government deems to be threats to the security of the U.S. or to its interests are in some unfathomable way responsible for their fates. Two thoughts occur to me as I reflect on this combination of events. One thought is obvious: the child-victims in all cases – whether in Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen or in Sandy Hook, Connecticut – are equally innocent and all should be honoured and mourned. The second thought is less obvious: are the perpetrators in all of these cases equally guilty?

Finley recognized with Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal By Murray Green

Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion member Al Finley was honoured to receive his Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Al grew up on a farm in southern Manitoba near the United States border. "I was tired of driving horses, but my dad wouldn't buy a tractor. I told him I'm not doing this anymore and at 17 I joined the Navy," recalled Al. "When I turned 18 they accepted me and the very next spring my dad bought a tractor." Al served in the Navy for two years. "It was very poor training. We were to have two months of boiler room training, but we shovelled coal for six weeks. Then with two weeks left, we learned about a half a dozen different boilers," he added. "One thing we were taught, was never put cold water in a hot boiler or it will blow up. That's the only thing I remember." By the end of the session, Al didn't have enough training for a sea draft, so he was sent to the west coast. "I was there for nearly a year. I was supposed to be drafted for Pacific duties, but they wouldn't let me go. I had my front teeth broken when I was 11 years old and they wanted to fix them first. So, they put on caps and they kept falling out." One time Al and a petty officer were in charge of the boiler

on the ship when things started to go wrong. "Before you change shifts, you usually clean the nozzles on the sprayers. Three fires are going in the boiler room," Al explained. "The only guy went to change the sprayer, but forgot to shut off the pressure. The oil was at 90 degrees and the pressure was 210. He opened the sprayer value and sprayed the whole boiler room black, including himself. He left for upstairs to have a shower and didn't say anything else. Before he left the boiler was getting low on water." While he was gone, the

boiler started to hammer and shake. "We didn't have any hot water because it was boiled dry. I remember that you can't use cold water, so I didn't know what to do. I thought if I just use enough water to keep it from being dry, but not enough to blow it up. Then it got quiet and back to normal. I didn't think too much more about it. I told a couple of steam engineers about it 20 years later and asked how long did I have before it blew. They said I had seconds. If I hadn't put the water in when I did, even if it was cold, we would have all been blown up.

You have to be lucky once in a while. We didn't tell anybody." Al joined the Legion in the spring of 1962. "I served on the executive for 10 years and helped with maintenance. I also was the Poppy Fund chairman and we brought in more than $18,500. I also helped start bingos for us in Wetaskiwin. We were bringing in $4,500 a week at that time." Al was also involved with the Moose Lodge. "I made a motion to build a building for the Moose. We built it using blocks and concrete and I didn't receive anything out of it. I donated all of the material and labour," said Al, who owned Finley Masonry with his brother Ross. His nephew Wayne now owns the company. "I was the entertainment chairman for a long time at the Moose Lodge." Al has slowed down on volunteering. "I'm not involved a lot with the Legion or the Moose anymore because of my age. I spent 50 years at one place and 45 at the other. I also worked 12 to 14 hours a day at my business and eventually burnt myself out. I loved it though," said Al. "We were offered to learn a trade when the war was over, so I took up bricklaying. I asked which tradesmen made the most money. There was a German bricklayer that was making five cents more an hour than anybody else. I said, that's what I want to do."

At that time, Al hadn't laid a brick in his life. "They gave me the tools and I didn't even know what they were. It was a labour of love for me. I believed in working hard and treating people fair. We were so busy that we couldn't keep up even in the tough times. If you treat people right, you will succeed." After several jobs and moves, he did some contract work for Burrows Construction in 1963. "At that time there was only one other bricklayer in town. I came here and it was a good move for us. It has been an interesting life." This award means a lot to Al. "This is a real honour. It comes from the Queen and it comes from your work that you have done in the community. You can't measure it in dollars because it comes from the heart," said Al. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

About Time Productions' newest musical starts Friday By Dan Jensen

Months of preparation will come to a head this weekend when the About Time Productions' theatre production program presents its 2013 musical, Once Upon a Mattress. "Everybody is really looking forward to getting back on the stage," said About Time Productions artistic director Cathie Johnson. "The kids have built up lots of energy over the last several months of rehearsals and it is time now for them to take the next step." Based on the fairy tale of The Princess and the Pea, Once Upon a Mattress is one of the most performed musicals at the high school and community theatre level. The story centres around Prince Dauntless the Drab, son of King Sextimus, who is unable to speak, and his wife, Queen Aggravain, who in her attempt to retain power, has declared that, until her son finds a spouse, no one in the kingdom may marry. The ruling is disturbing to many of the queen's subjects, most especially Lady Larken, who is carrying the child of Sir Harry. Luckily, Sir Harry is able to find an amazing princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, who declares herself a contender for the prince's hand and submits herself to Queen Aggravain's clever test. "The characters are sassy and there is a lot of singing and dancing involved," said Johnson. "Winnifred the Woebegon takes all the woe from the kingdom and makes it happy again." Once Upon a Mattress is

expected to be as charming and entertaining as About Time Productions' 2012 performance of Back to the Eighties, albeit in a different way. "In Back to the Eighties and the other musicals we have done, everyone was on the stage all the time," said Johnson. "With this one we are more lead actor heavy."

About Time Productions has benefitted this year from the talents of three Augustana drama students who have worked with cast members on their acting skills and their conditioning. "They have been learning all the time in a group setting, so there are no days where there are just a few of them at

practice," said Johnson. "They have had more coaching than they have had in previous years and I think that is going to be evident during our performances." About Time Productions has also received support from many dedicated community volunteers who have worked on the design of the set, which

includes a castle made almost entirely from recycled materials, and the sewing of medieval costumes. "The production team has created for us a magical world," said Johnson. "Many of the costumes have been created specially for this musical." Major sponsors of Once Upon a Mattress include McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC, the Kinsmen Club of Camrose, Booster Juice, Camrose Morning News, The Camrose Canadian, Boston Pizza and Burgar Funeral Home. "Without the help of our sponsors none of this would have been possible," said Johnson. "I don't think very many people in Camrose know how much it costs to stage a musical production. Back to the Eighties last year cost us $30,000 to produce and I am sure the cost of producing this musical will be close to the same." Once Upon a Mattress will run at the Bailey Theatre March 15, 16 and 22, beginning at 7:30, and March 22 and 24 beginning at 2:30. A dinner theatre will be held at the Bailey March 23, starting at 6:30. About Time Productions is a not for profit association created in 2005 to bring live theatre, performed by children, to Camrose. Its mission is 'to provide affordable, non exclusive, non competitive, high quality arts educational instruction and performance while instilling an enduring appreciation for arts culture'.

Dodge Ram Heavy Duty Rising to the highest level of capability By Dan Jensen

The new Dodge Ram heavy duty trucks have arrived at Camrose Chrysler. The 2013 Ram heavy duty rises to the highest level of capability with best-in-class towing and best-in-class gross combined weight rating. The Ram 3500 claims a 30,000-pound trailer capacity thanks to a new classexclusive 50,000 pounds per square inch, high-strength steel frame, improved transfer case, higher load transmission, and other significant driveline upgrades. Powertrain

A 5.7 litre HEMI V-8 makes its debut in the Ram 3500 heavy duty pickup as standard equipment. Also standard in the Ram 2500 heavy duty, the engine produces 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and generates peak torque of 400 lb.-ft. at 3,950 rpm. The HEMI is mated to a 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission. Dominating the power charts, the renowned 6.7 litre Cummins high output turbo diesel I-6 is now available in three versions. The first version is paired with Ram's segment exclusive six-speed manual transmission, which features a wear-compensating clutch for lifetime "like new" performance and a dual-trunion shift tower to accommodate a compact shift pattern. This combination delivers 350 horsepower at 2,800 rpm – a significant upgrade from the 2012 model-year maximum of 600 lb.-ft. The second option matches the Cummins to the 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission. The diesel engine cranks out 370 horsepower at 2,800 rpm with an unsurpassed in three-quarter ton trucks 800 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm. Finally, an upgraded 6.7 litre Cummins high output turbo diesel I-6 for Ram 3500 is paired with a new Aisin six-speed automatic transmission (AS69RC), leaving no doubt to Ram's heavy duty capability. In addition to 385 horsepower at 2,800 rpm, the most powerful Cummins generates best-in-class torque of 850 lb.-ft. at 1,600 rpm. The new transmission features wide gear ratios that contribute to upgraded shift performance, an approximate one per cent gain in transmission efficiency, and improved driveability when compared to the previous design. For 2013, all Ram heavy duty diesels benefit from an all-new cooling system. A high-efficiency fan, dual radiators, dual transmission coolers and charge air cooler afford 25 per cent more heat-rejection capacity. Lower operating temperatures deliver improved performance, durability and lower operating costs. Diesel-equipped Ram heavy duty pickups feature an industry-exclusive Ram Active Air intake system, activated by new monitoring capabilities added to the engine controller. When the intake system senses extreme heat, it draws cool air from the front of the vehicle, a function that also engages at high altitudes for superior throttle response in low oxygen environments. When conditions are wet from snow, ice or water fjording, the system pulls air from an underhood inlet clear from snow packing and water ingestion.

The Cummins powerplants benefit from a larger exhaust-gas recirculation cooler, which complements the debut of selective catalytic reduction and accommodates a best-in-class oil change interval of 15,000 miles. Oil life is increased by reducing soot production and reducing fuel dilution of the oil. Engineering

Ram heavy duty trucks feature new frames built with high-strength 50 KSI steel, including eight separate cross members, hydroformed main rails and fully boxed rear rails for optimal strength and mass efficiency. Wider front frame rails enable front suspension springs to be positioned slightly outboard, an enabler for generating more positive roll stiffness. A new front suspension cross member is now a two-piece welded component between the front axle and oil pan. Centre frame rail sections are roll-formed, an efficient means of maintaining consistent strength in less complex longitudinal sections. In the rear portion of the new frame, the structure includes fully boxed rear rails and a factory-installed rear axle cross member with provisions for fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches. A new front and rear suspension system with advanced geometry builds upon the chassis improvements and greatly improves roll stiffness. A number of body improvements have been made to enhance overall noise, vibration and harshness, and to align with the best-in-class capabilities of the 2013 Ram heavy duty. The new truck comes equipped with updated engine, transmission and body mounts, including pioneered hydro mounts at C-pillar positions for class-leading NVH characteristics despite the truck's aptitude for higher payloads and towing. A new capless fuel filter on diesel applications is a space saving initiative that enables side-by-side fuel and diesel exhaust fluid port configuration. The result is more convenient fuel and DEF re-fill at pump stations. Interior

New Ram heavy duty features and technologies create an opportunity for a redesigned interior with material

upgrades, improved fit and finish, new colours, HVAC controls and new multi-media systems. The 2013 Ram heavy duty features the next generation 8.4-inch Uconnect system with background screens tailor-made to specific Ram models and themes. To make room for the new big screen, the centre stack is upgradMike Cuthbert ed with matching materials Camrose Chrysler found throughout the interior. Complementing the range of Ram heavy duty models, the interior design team created new, individualized themes with different colours and materials. The all-new HVAC controls take lessons learned from other Chrysler Group Uconnect applications and feature simple, improved function meeting the highest Human Machine Interface (HMI) standards. The HVAC system includes a redundant architecture, allowing the operator to use either the 8.4-inch touchscreen or manual controls to alter the truck's environment. Below the HVAC arrangement is a new switch bank with relocated, easy-to-use controls for a number of features depending on vehicle models and options. The top row is for functional features and includes exhaust brake, tow/haul and electronic stability control. The bottom row also can be optioned as an auxiliary switch bank for all five spots. All buttons in the comfort bank also are redundant in the Uconnect system. Contiguous to the switch bank is a prominently placed adjustable integrated trailer brake control, allowing the driver to add or reduce trailer brake force on the fly. The new console centre stack includes a 115-volt outlet and new drawer at the base of the stack with a smooth, premium feel tool box-slide action. The new drawer features 12-volt outlets on either side and an optional powered USB on the driver's side.

You can see the 2013 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty at Camrose Chrysler, on Highway 13 East. Phone 780-672-2476 or toll free 1-800-563-4202 and ask for a member of the friendly sales team.

By Murray Green Camrose Kodiaks' rookie forward Tanner MacMaster was named the Alberta Junior Hockey League Rookie of the Year. He received the Dick White Trophy prior to the start of the playoffs on March 6. "I was kind of surprised. I came into the league wanting to develop and pursue my opportunities," said Tanner. "I had a good season with the Kodiaks and hopefully that will continue into the playoffs." AJHL commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk made the presentation in the EnCana Arena before the puck was dropped to start the series between Camrose and the Calgary Mustangs. Tanner made the transition from minor hockey to the junior ranks look easy. "It took me a couple of games to get used to the level, but my teammates really helped me get used to the speed. They gave me little tips on things to do, so I have to give both my linemates and teammates a lot of credit for helping me," added Tanner. " It capped off a great week for Tanner as he also announced he is going to Boston College for the 2014-15 season. "Boston College has a big history of developing smaller guys. I thought I would fit in well there. My style fits because they are a skilled team that likes to control the puck. I will fit in well there," explained Tanner. "I had a couple of other places lined up to see during the spring break, but I decided not to wait. I liked what I saw, I went to a game and enjoyed the good atmosphere. I thought 'Why wait?' It was the right time to make the decision." The rookie will return to the Kodiaks next season. "I have another year of high school until I graduate and then it will be off to college." Tanner led all rookies and the Kodiaks in scoring with 48 points and 24 goals. He came through in the clutch with six game-winning goals for the Kodiaks and recorded a hat trick (three goals in one game). The Kodiaks' player was named as an unanimous selection to the AJHL South Division All-rookie team and represented the AJHL as a member of Team Pacific at the 2013 World Junior Under 17 Hockey Challenge. He was selected as the Canalta Hotel's AJHL Player of the Week in February 2013, and was a seven time recipient of the Pro Hockey Life Player of the Game award. Tanner accepted a scholarship offer from Boston College. The rookie forward for the Kodiaks has had an exceptional year and is deserving of this scholarship. The Alberta Junior Hockey

Local athletes collect seven medals Submitted by Rose Snopek

Health is Wealth was the theme of the Alberta 55 plus Winter Games held in Calgary Feb. 13 to 16. With over 1,180 participants from across Alberta, the excitement was high as many of them had never experienced the Games before. Our Camrose Ski Club competed at the Canmore Nordic Centre, one of the best ski trails in the province. The event was very well run and the condi-

tions were perfect. We had the novice, Glenys Smith, who had never experienced racing before, and the near novice, Ivar Saugen, who had only three years of racing under his belt. But the combination of the Camrose Ski Club and Stettler, managed to win seven gold medals and one bronze. They attribute some of their success to Les Parsons, the new coach, who offers advice on technique and body mechanics. Les was the former coach of

the Olympian Becky Scott, and has a multitude of expertise to offer. The wax master, Dr. Garry Gibson, worked his magic, which provided very fast times. Cross-country skiing is one of the best events to keep fit. Garry Gibson is a prime example of this, as at the age of 82, he still skies faster than most of the competitors, regardless of age. He received the award as the Eldest Participant in cross-country skiing at the Winter Games.

From left to right, Garry Gibson earned gold medals in the 75 and over men’s 7.5 km and 15 km events. Helen Samm won gold medals in the 60 and over women’s 5 km and 10 km races. Glenys Smith captured a bronze medal in the 70 and over women’s 10 km event. Bridie Forde of Stettler won gold medals in the 65 and over women’s 5 km and 10 km races. Ivar Saugen came in fourth in both the 70 and over men’s events.

BRCF presents grant to St. Andrew's Anglican Church The Battle River Community Foundation has made a grant to St. Andrew's Anglican Church. This grant is from the Ken and Audrey Rayment Fund which is designated for St. Andrew's Anglican Church. 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 like the Rayments and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local charities such as St. Andrew’s Anglican Church. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make flowthrough gifts to 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. To learn more about the Battle River Community Foundation please visit the website at www.brcf.ca or call the office at 780-679-0449.

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.

Shoot. Get Treasure. Repeat

34

Augustana short plays explore human resilience By Murray Green University of Alberta, Augustana Campus will be presenting Mark Ravenhill’s play, Shoot. Get Treasure. Repeat. from March 14 to 16 and again March 20 to 23 at the Augustana Theatre Building beginning at 7:30 p.m. Director Kevin Sutley will lead the cast into an epic series of short plays exploring human resilience in the face of a contemporary war on terror. The 17 plays that make up Shoot. Get Treasure. Repeat. were first produced at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe as Ravenhill for Breakfast. "The idea of the title came about because it is like a video game. You shoot, get the treasure and you repeat the process," explained Kevin. "He explores human resiliency in a time of war on terror. He looks at issues around people during a time of fear and mistrust. Ravenhill calls it an epic cycle of plays. Instead of writing one play and covering all of the aspects, he wrote a series to reflect each epic." When presented, these 17 plays form a collage of very different scenes, each taking its title from a classic work. The students of the Augustana drama program will present seven of the plays from the cycle: Women of Troy, Crime and Punishment, Armageddon, The Mother, Twilight of the Gods, Paradise Lost and The Odyssey. "The epics average 15 to 20 minutes in length and range from two to 10 students on stage. We have 16 students on stage with a few having dual roles," said the director. "The thing about this play is that even if you were not from a country that has terrorism, you can relate to it. It doesn't deal with specific history, just the idea of terrorism. It involves drama and comedy with a variety." The play was originally developed in association with Britain’s National Theatre Studio. Mark Ravenhill is an English playwright, actor and journalist. Professor Sutley trimmed the number of plays in the cycle by picking ones that reflect some of the students' issues and to shorten the original six-hour length. Kelsey Boisvert is the stage manager and the actors and actresses include Kristi Beange, Richard Boness, Levi Borejko, Ari Evans, Maddy Goodman, Phil Hackborn, Ally Larson, Brittany Lehman, Rhianne Lessard, Tarisai Mbudzi, Katie Melnychuk, Nathan Plumite, Dan Shepherd, Aleisha Sommer, Carolyn Venter, Amy Wright and Logan Hicks. Tickets are available at the door at 7 p.m. and are $5 for students and $15 for general admission. Warning: some scenes may contain strong language.

Montreal storyteller, comedian brings show to Bailey By Murray Green

Canadian humourist, storyteller, musician and playwright Lorne Elliott will be performing “The Upside of the Downturn,� his show of comedy and music theatre, to the Bailey Theatre in Camrose on March 14. Lorne's concert performance is a selection of his current monologues and songs dealing with life experience. Over the winter he has been creating new stage material about having to redefine priorities in view of life events. The Montreal writer and stage performer enjoys shaking the perceived wisdom of the world around him through comedy and storytelling. "I wanted to have a western tour in the spring because it is always nice that time of year. With each tour the old material gets pushed out by the new," said Lorne. "The show will be completely new, so if someone has seen my show before they won't have to worry about having seen if before." His one-man show concert presentation is delightfully foolish, witty and thought-provoking. Combining dry humour with musical parodies and skits, he is a shrewd observer of the human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, his funny tales are family friendly. "I share my stories and songs from incidents that happen to me. I tell them to people and if their eyes don't glaze over, I tell them to more people," joked Lorne. "It is an honest way to do shows. I like to constantly refer to the audience and receive feedback. Live shows are so important because you know instantly what is working and what isn't. It develops the culture and interactions. You never know what really works until it works. I learned to write from the audience. They tell you immediately if it is clicking or not," explained Lorne. For the past 26 years Lorne Elliott has been touring and performing in concert in theatres and arts centres across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Regularly featured on television on such programs as The Just For Laughs Festival and comedy variety specials. "I tend to use my music to break things up and tell stories through folk songs," added Lorne. "My songs are stories and you take people along a journey with you." For 11 Seasons “Madly Off In All Directions� was Lorne’s own CBC Radio comedy series, which went on until 2006. Lorne is currently developing new projects. He has four CDs of his works. Lorne is also a playwright and he received the Playwrights Guild of Canada 2012 Best New Musical award for his play Jamie Rowsell Lives. This past January, his play Culture Shock was produced by Central Alberta Theatre in Red Deer. Lorne's show on March 14 begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets at $35 can be picked up at the Bailey Box Office or online.

A motion was updated to approve the allocation of funds as outlined by the Affordable Housing Sub Committee of council and direct administration to work with the successful proponents on the revision of an affordable housing plan that will be brought forward to the March 18 regular meeting. Council was asked to direct the sub committee to make recommendation of the remaining funds to council following the Alberta guidelines. Randal Nickel, executive director for the Open Door Association, approached council on questions about the affordable housing project the association submitted. "The original RFP was for $1.7 million, but as of today it is about $1.75 million with interest," said councillor Greg Wood. "As Randal indicated, Open Door did apply. On two occasions we went back to the provincial government to massage the guidelines to include the Open Door under the umbrella, but unfortunately the guidelines specified that any projects substantially completed by the time the Request For Proposals (RFP) closed did not qualify. We did our best to get the project under the proposals." At the July 16, 2012, meeting, direction was given to administration to proceed with an affordable housing request for proposals. After the closing date the city received six submissions. At the September 4, 2012, regular meeting, a sub committee of council was established to review the proposals with a mandate to bring back recommendations. Due to a variety of factors, an extension to the deadline for submission to the province was requested to March 31. The committee reviewed and met with all applicants and are recommending the following funding allocations. A decision on further allocation of funds is expected in the near future. Jason Cocar requested to build a duplex and a half (nine units) for $350,000, Rose City Residential, to build four units for $300,000 and Habitat for Humanity to build three to six units for a little more than $300,000. "This leaves $800,000 left to be allocated and we have one more project that is being proposed," explained councillor Wood. "It involves cross-ministry, three or four different ministers, so it will take longer. If it doesn't go ahead by the deadline, it will have to be resubmitted. These projects have to be in the ground in 2013." Administration will work with each of the proponents to complete the detailed plan that will be submitted to the province as required. The affordable housing sub committee is made up of councillors Brandon Blatz, Daryl Shillington and Wood.

Bereavement, grief workshop planned for early April Submitted by Colleen Lindholm, Primary Care Network We all face loss, eventually. And often we – along with our friends, co-workers, and family members are not sure what supports are available. The Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) is pleased to offer another one-day Bereavement and Grief workshop on Saturday, April 6, which will explain the differences between bereavement, grief and mourning. This workshop is for people who are coping with grief and loss, as well as for people interested in becoming “grief helpers” – co-workers, family members or even physicians and health care professionals supporting people going through a loss. Participants will learn: the difference between bereavement, grief and mourning; stages of grief; common symptoms of grief; coping with grief; and how to access appropriate community resources. “No one is exempt from the heartache of losing a loved one ... so let's learn together how we can help each other," says facilitator and registered nurse with a certificate in grief support, Colette Howery. “Walking alongside another person in the grief journey is in itself a learning experience. There are no set rules or steps or instructions to fix those who mourn. Life changes with each loss experienced. Learn how to create a safe place for people to work through their new reality – without judgment or shame. There is no cure, no drug, no power to get things back to the way it was before the loss event. But there is hope,” adds certified grief trainer Donna Lynn Erickson who also facilitates the workshop. “PCN physicians and staff are really pleased with the success of the grief and bereavement workshops which have been offered for over a year now. They recognize there is an opportunity in the community to continue this program for individuals facing loss in their lives," said Stacey Strilchuk, Camrose PCN executive director. “We are fortunate to have Colette and Donna Lynne to partner with for this workshop, and are so pleased to be able to collaborate with them in a way that is meaningful and relevant to people facing bereavement and grief.” This free workshop, being held at the Edgeworth Centre Community Room #3, will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes lunch. To receive more information or to register, please contact the Camrose PCN at 780-608-4927 or visit www.camrosepcn.com. Space is limited so call today. Registrations will be taken until April 2.

Kodiaks take out Mustangs in first round of playoffs By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks sought revenge for losing the first game in the best-of-five series against the Calgary Mustangs, March 7. Camrose won three straight games to win the series. The Kodiaks won 3-1, 2-1 and 5-2 to move on to the next round. At the EnCana Arena, the bears scored first, on a Luc Vandale power play tally, and held on to the third period. Brett Njaa and Nolan Marshall added goals in the third to help Camrose win 3-1 and even the series at one game each. Goalie Devin McDonald stopped 40 of 41 shots he faced to earn player of the game. Camrose fired 34 shots at the Calgary net. The Mustangs bolted out of the gate to take a 2-0 lead in the first period and hung on to defeat the Camrose Kodiaks 5-3 in the opening game of the southern division playoff series in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, March 6. AJHL rookie of the year, Tanner MacMaster garnered the first goal for the Kodiaks in the second frame and Nolan Marshall added another marker later in the period. However, the Mustangs also scored twice in the period. Camrose pulled within one when Luc Vandale found the back of the net. The Mustangs ended the scoring with an empty net goal in the last minute. Kodiaks' goalie Matt Gibney struggled to make seven out of 10 saves. Devin McDonald turned away 18 of 19 shots in relief. Camrose peppered Calgary goalie Ravi Dattani with 46 shots and he was named the star of the game. "We prepare for the Mustangs like any other team. We have to pay attention to detail. In the playoffs, everything is more upbeat. We just have to come to the games with intensity and be ready to play," said Tanner MacMaster, AJHL rookie of the year. Camrose ended the regular season on a positive note when they snuffed out the Drumhel-

ler Dragons 4-3 in overtime on March 2. Luc Vandale scored the first Kodiaks tally before the game reached the two minute mark. However, the Dragons roared back with two goals before the break. Hudson Elyniuk brought the Kodiaks back on even terms with a goal. He received a feed from brother Jakson Elyniuk. Drumheller regained the lead with a power play tally. Defenceman Trevor Costello of the Kodiaks returned the favour on the power play to even the teams. Ty Clay was the hero in overtime when he finished a scoring opportunity that teammates

Brett Njaa and Layne Viveiros started. Goalie Matt Gibney turned away 35 of the 38 shots he faced. The Kodiaks built up a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes before the Brooks Bandits stormed back to even the match at 2-2 on Feb. 23. After the overtime frame failed to solve the deadlock, the Bandits stole the extra point in the shootout. Brett Njaa and Ty Clay (shorthanded) scored for Camrose. Kodiaks' netminder Devin McDonald stopped 34 of 36 shots to give his team a point. The Alberta Junior Hockey League selected the all-league

teams and all-rookie teams for the 2012-13 season. The selections for each team were determined through a voting system by the league general managers and coaches. The south division allleague team consists of: G Jared D'Amico, Okotoks Oilers; D Jonathan Lashyn, Camrose Kodiaks; D Brennan Baxandall, Drumheller Dragons; F Cam Maclise, Brooks Bandits; F Chris Collins, Okotoks Oilers; and F Mathew Marcinew, Olds Grizzlys. The southern team includes four AJHL award finalists (D’Amico, Lashyn, Baxandall, Maclise). The north division all-league

team is made up of: G Marc -Olivier Daigle, Drayton Valley Thunder; D Josh Healey, Sherwood Park Crusaders; D Grant Baker, Lloydminster Bobcats; F Jerome Raymond, Whitecourt Wolverines; F Mathieu Guertin, Whitecourt Wolverines; and F Dylan Richard, Spruce Grove Saints. Three members of the allleague teams have committed to further their academic and athletic pursuit following the AJHL. Josh Healey and Dylan Richard of the north and Jonathan Lashyn of the south division have already committed to a post-secondary career.

Hockey Vikings eliminated from ACAC playoffs by SAIT Trojans to change that. In both games, we had about a 10 minute lull where they scored their goals and it is making us pay for it right now." Scott said the Vikings need to want it more like they did last year. "We hated them last year in the playoffs and we have to get that back. We have to play with that intensity. Some guys realize this could be their last games of competitive hockey, so we will all be coming out pretty hard. We won three straight against SAIT last year. We just have to do it again."

By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings hockey club were fighting for its life after dropping two straight games to the SAIT Trojans in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference semifinals. Augustana won 4-3 In Calgary, but lost 6-3 at home to end the series. SAIT goalie Michael Tadjdeh blanked Augustana by stopping 22 shots to win 2-0 in the opening match of the best-of-five series on March 1. Vikings' netminder Joel Danyluk was busy by making 34 of 36 saves. "The main problem has been our lack of scoring. One difference was the power play. They scored a couple and we didn't," said forward Scott Aucoin. "In the second game we gave them three at the start and then outplayed them. We have to find a way to put the puck in the net right now. It means going to the net more. Once we score on the power play it will be huge and start us going as well." SAIT built up a 3-0 lead in the second game in the EnCana Arena before the Vikings replied

late in the first period. Dan Hope started the offence rolling. In the second frame, Craig Cornelsen brought Augustana back to within one tally. However, five minutes later SAIT added a fourth marker to give them a 4-2 lead. That score would hold up until the final buzzer. The Vikings generated more scoring opportunities and fired

35 shots at the SAIT net. Danyluk stopped 13 of 17 shots before Paul Kolida came in relief and stopped all four shots he faced. "We need to go to SAIT and score the first goal and put it to them for the rest of the game," added Scott. "We have to be ready to go right from the start of the game. The pucks just didn't go in the first two games and we have

Kelsey Lund and Taryn Story of the women's Augustana Vikings basketball team made the first team all-stars. Kari Kubinec was named to the second team of All-Conference players. The Vikings reached the finals on Feb. 28 to March 2, before losing to the red hot Olds Broncos. The Broncos won five straight playoff games to reap the gold medals with an 83-65 victory over the hosts. Augustana received silver medals. Taryn Story was the best Viking with 22 points.

Augustana opened the tournament with a convincing 88-63 win over the Concordia Thunder. Lund led the offence with 18 points and Kubinec added 15. The Vikings beat Grant MacEwan 72-59 to reach the finals. Kubinec collected 22 points and Taryn Story added 21. Shayn Bruney and David Shantz of the Vikings made the second team of ACAC Men's Basketball All-Conference players. Augustana placed sixth in the province in the playoffs. The Vikings lost 100-84 in the opening game of the playoffs. Bruney and Lee Danderfer each scored 20 points in the contest in Fort McMurray on March 1 to 3. Augustana bounced back with a hard fought 65-58 victory. Shantz netted 18 points to lead the Vikings on offence. Augustana faced NAIT again for the battle of fifth place in the playoff tournament. The Ooks won 86-78. Michael Swampy led the Vikings in scoring with 21 points and Shantz added 17.
