Social development committee needs members The City of Camrose Social Development Committee is seeking to fill three vacant spots: two member at large positions, and one agency representative position. Formerly known as the Social Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC), the Social Development Committee (SDC) was established in the early 2000s to oversee the City’s 2002 Social Needs Assessment and Labour Market Study. During most of the 2000s, SPAC pursued its mandate via various Task Forces (Affordable Housing; Alcohol and Drug; Community Transportation) that have since become independent of the committee. In 2009, the City updated its 2002 Social Needs Assessment by creating a Social Development Strategy (2009-2014). SPAC served as the steering committee for that project, and continues to work with community agencies and the City to guide, monitor and assess the thirty-eight strategic initiatives contained in the SDS report. Last year, SPAC reviewed its mandate with the City, a process that resulted in a new Social Development Committee Bylaw. The Social Development Committee is currently helping the City’s Economic Development Officer implement our new Community Economic Development Plan, in part to help ensure that the social implications of economic development decisions are more fully considered. To aid in this work, the committee is reviewing several strategic plans that the City has undertaken since 2002 to identify and better monitor recurring issues. The committee also plans a community engagement forum for late September. The Social Development Committee is an advisory committee. It does not initiate projects directly, but instead brings recommendations to City Council. To help ensure that everyone has access to information regarding social issues and available services, the committee works closely with local organizations. SDC members are especially interested in strengthening ties with businesses, since community social well-being is as important to business as it is to the human services not-for-profit sector commonly associated with social development concerns. The Social Development Committee currently meets the first Monday of each month (except July and August) from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the Camrose Community Centre. As is the case with all City Council Committees, members must be city of Camrose residents. Applications are available from the City website: or from Committee Chair Margaret Holliston (; 780672-0141). Call Margaret or Kim Isaak at the City (780672-4426) for more information about this exciting opportunity.

Augustana will feel the pinch of provincial budget By Dan Jensen

The Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta will be looking for ways to slash costs as a result of the reduced funding for post secondary education in the new provincial budget. The Government of Alberta announced March 7 that it is cutting 2013-14 operational funding for the University of Alberta, which includes Augustana, by 7.2 per cent ($43 million) to $549,536,000. "This is a regressive decision," said University of Alberta president Indira Samarasekera, following a special meeting with all University of Alberta deans Mar. 10. "The University of Alberta needs a four per cent increase just to cover the cost of inflation." University of Alberta Augustana Faculty dean Dr. Allen Berger said March 11 the cuts are going to take some time to figure out. "It is premature for us here at Augustana to jump to any conclusion about what these new budget circumstances might mean." The cuts came as a bit of a surprise to the University of Alberta, which was told as early as last December that the government was looking at increasing funding for post secondary education by two per cent. "The 7.2 per cent reduction means that we will be starting the new year 9.2 per cent below where we thought we were going to be," said Dr. Berger. The early consensus of University of Alberta leaders is that the university will have to look at vertical cuts – stopping what it is doing – as opposed to horizontal cuts – maintaining what it is doing and seeing how it can get by with less money. A leaked University of Alberta email released by the NDP last Wednesday said faculty heads have been asked to find ways to spend 20 per cent less next year and come up with a plan to raise money to recoup half that amount. "We have reached a point where all of the deans are saying there is no more fat to be cut and we are placing in jeopardy the quality of our academic programs," said Dr. Berger, "so it appears that as we plan for the coming year the university is going to try to limit the amount of across the board horizontal cutting and instead look vertically." Advanced Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk is encouraging post secondary institutions to look for cost savings through greater collaboration with each other, which he said they have not had to do because of the generous funding they have received. He is also indicating that raising student tuition fees is not an option. "I can't speak for the Minister but I think in a sense he is asking the universities, the post secondary sector, to become more efficient, rather than simply pass on the costs that the government is not willing to cover to students and their families," said Dr. Berger. "I have seen the opposite happen when I lived in the United States. As State governments decreased their commitments to higher education the shortfall was made up by skyrocketing tuitions that created frightening levels of student loan debt for many families. In some ways then it is a good thing that we are not solving our budgetary problems simply by passing them on to students. On the other hand, there are areas in which tuition at the University of Alberta is underpriced compared to the competition. I wouldn't make that generalization about undergraduate tuition but some of the more specialized programs compared to other institutions. That would be the case for example with the business school."

BRSD will continue to face difficult times with new budget By Dan Jensen

The light at the end of the tunnel is taking its time appearing for the Battle River School Division. The provincial government budget rolled out March 7 projects BRSD's total government funding to be $67,556,000 for the 2013-14 fiscal year starting Sept. 1, down 1.5 per cent from the 2012-13 estimate of $68,553,000. "We're in the phase of seeking clarity and what the numbers actually mean," said BRSD superintendent Dr. Larry Payne. "The enrollment numbers that government are using appear little higher than we think we might have in September so there might be a little give and take involved. "We're going to have to delve into that a little bit deeper." Base funding

BRSD is concerned that the projected amount of base funding – $41,643,000 is almost exactly the same as the 2012-13 base funding estimate of $41,809,000.

"We have increased costs every year, so ultimately, when you shake it all down, a zero increase in the base funding means a decrease in the dollars we have available," said Dr. Payne. BRSD is hoping to get funding allocation templates to the schools by April 16 so they can begin to work out what they are dealing with before the start of the new school year. Equity of Opportunity

The budget increases the school division's equity of opportunity grant (created to acknowledge rural school divisions with significant distance or low density in population) by $626,000. "We feel rural communities have been acknowledged, much more than they have in the past, by Minister Jeff Johnson and the government, and that is nice to see," said Dr. Payne. The allocation for inclusive education is $3,262,000, an increase of two per cent – or $83,000 – based on current

enrollment. BRSD will receive $3.8 million in a program equity grant to offset an expected decline in this grant. The class size for ECS to Grade 3 was increased by two per cent, which could mean about $100,000 for BRSD based on current projections. Funding for the Student Health Initiative Partnership (SHIP) is being reallocated to a Regional Collaborative Service model, but the overall dollar amounts are not being reduced. AISI eliminated

The budget totally eliminates the Alberta Initiative for School Improvement (AISI) program effective April 1, resulting in a reduction of $184,000 in this school year and a loss of $484,000 for next year. "The AISI was started by the government to support school divisions' innovation and build the capacity of the divisions to handle a different range of students, but we always knew it wasn't sus-

tainable and long term, so it wasn't a surprise in some ways that it was eliminated," said Dr. Payne. The budget also eliminates effective April 1 the Fuel Price Contingency Grant. BRSD's dollars will be reduced by $130,000 in the current school year and a total of $442,000 next school year. The plant operations and maintenance funding formula has been modified to reflect Alberta Education's departure from tying student coding to funding. "The change is expected to reduce our funding by $643,000 next year," states a BRSD fact sheet. The amount BRSD will be able to allocate to administration has been reduced from four per cent of total expenses to 3.6 per cent. "In BRSD that could mean a loss of about $266,000," states the fact sheet. Other changes in the division's budget include a 21.75 per

cent reduction in infrastructure maintenance renewal funding, changes to the per credit funding (generally used in high schools and distance education courses), a change in the eligibility for ESL funding, and the elimination of the Learning Resources Credit allocation. Alignment of resources

One of the first things BRSD will be addressing between now and June 30 is how to align resources and services so there isn't a deficit model already on Sept. 1 when BRSD begins its new fiscal year. "We expect there will be a few things that people will notice as we try to absorb the (unfunded) costs," said Dr. Payne. "We have to find a way between now and the end of the school year of absorbing approximately $300,000." Impact on operations

The budget for next year will present challenges to almost every aspect of BRSD's operations. Continued on page 14

Impact on Augustana Continued from page 4

The University of Alberta has already been providing project management services for some of the smaller institutions across the province, and is currently looking at the idea of a shared payroll service. "The University of Alberta provides a number of services for the faculty and some of those services arguably could be provided more broadly," said Dr. Berger. One role that Augustana will continue to play in the whole setup is working with two-year colleges across the province to ensure that students there are easily able to transfer its own Bachelor programs. "We have established a number of memoranda of understanding to ease transfer for our students, and we continue to develop new ones," said Dr. Berger. Samarasekera said that while the government has extended the deadline to May 31 for the 2013 Comprehensive Institutional Plan, which includes the institutional budget for 2013-14, more time will be needed to make the best possible decisions going forward. The government has drafted mandate letters for each institution that should be delivered within the next few weeks. The budget is not expected to affect either the construction or the operation of the Camrose Performing Arts Centre. "We have already identified the resources necessary for constructing the building, and are still seeking some gifts to help us reach our target, but we are not dependent on the operating budget of the university to construct

the performing arts centre," said Dr. Berger. "In addition, while the university has committed to annual contributions to underwrite the operating costs of the building I don't think those are in any way in jeopardy. We have a legal agreement with the City in regard to the performing arts centre and we will honour that legal agreement."

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

Popular Music Has Changed More than seventy years ago, I fell in love with a travelling salesman. He was smitten, too. Camrose was his home town and we had both graduated from Camrose High School the same year as well as from the Camrose Lutheran College business diploma course the following year. Following that, he was employed full-time in the sales department of the Edmonton Journal. For him, this meant being on the road, for one or two weeks at a time, servicing Journal dealers in central and northern Alberta. During this period, and even later, it was his custom to bring me a new piece of sheet music each time he returned from a trip. In his bold handwriting he would write my maiden name on the front of the new piece. After we were married he would write “Mrs. Bill Fowler” and, I always felt, he did so with a great amount of satisfaction, just as it pleased me to see it. (How different from today when wives tend to guard rather jealously their personal identity by retaining their maiden names after marriage or by using the title Ms. followed by their own first names rather than that of their husbands.) This week, I browsed nostalgically through a stack of that old music, all of it well-worn but, with the help of sticky tape, is still quite usable. What struck me was how much popular music has changed in the last seven decades. To me, it seemed that feelings of love and devotion used to be expressed in a more gentlemanly and respectful way. Back then, Rudy Vallée would gently sway in waltz tempo: ”You’re as sweet as the red rose in June, dear; I love you, adore you, I do.” Slowly and expressively, another old favourite asked: “If I didn’t care ... would my every prayer begin and end with just your name? And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare? Would all this be true if I didn’t care for you?” Another piece we liked was a hit from the Paramount Picture Gulliver’s Travels in which the refrain contained the words: “Faithful forever whatever I do, Remember I’m true, Remember that! Faithful forever and thankful for you, I’ll keep smiling through, remember that! ... Faithful forever I promise to be, So always have faith in me!” Bill liked to dance and he liked big band music so, of course, he brought some popular Glenn Miller and Guy Lombardo. Mitch Miller and the Gang sang “Let Me Call You Sweetheart, I’m in love with you, Let me hear you whisper that you love me too. Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true, Let me call you sweetheart, I’m in love with you.” Bill brought me other kinds of music, too, such as Tschaikowsky’s Nut-cracker Suite – the simplified version, I hasten to add. During World War II, music included more military marches and new tunes such as “Coming In on a Wing and a Prayer,” “I’ll never Smile Again,” and “There’ll be Blue-birds Over the White Cliffs of Dover ... and Jimmy will go to sleep in his own little bed again ... just you wait and see.” The treasures stored in my piano bench also include the ultimate love stories as contained in my mother’s old Songs of the Gospel – an item that I feel fortunate to have. I liked the old popular music because it was gentle, sincere, tender, affectionate, assuring and enduring – something that does not emanate from what is noisy, crude and obscene.

Editor Berdie Fowler (Mar. 12) writes that "growing numbers of people need homes" and industrial employment, yet is rightly concerned about the resultant destruction of prime agricultural land. She indicates the alternative to cities growing outwards is high-rise living, a dilemma for Albertans who prefer wide open spaces and single family dwellings. Her conclusion is that we eventually "will have to choose: Food or Sprawl?," and that hopefully "foresight and wisdom will prevail before it’s too late." When will enough be enough? The real problem that should be attacked is the "growing numbers of people" she mentions in passing. We would not have to choose between crowding out good land or crowding up good people if we were not being continually inundated with more people. The government unwisely has been keen to import them in order to ramp up oil produc-

tion as quickly as possible, even to the point where "we" seem to have gone beyond the ability to export through pipelines and face great obstacles in constructing more. All this influx has presented substantial ongoing problems especially for Edmonton in providing schools and other services. Neither piling people on top of each other nor paving over the goodness of the earth is a true and rational choice, especially considering the consequences to the environment and peoples’ lives. Alberta’s complicity with the Government of Canada to import foreign workers including from eastern provinces has resulted in an increasing mess in our environment, congestion on our roads, and a generally less peaceful place in which to live. It would seem there can be no rationality in the present system, our governments not even wanting to try to stop the deluge. Apparently the only solution can come through Alberta being free to run entirely its own affairs, politically no longer having anything to do with other Canadians, and defend its own borders. Let us be resolved to save one good place on God’s favored planet. Douglas Hendrickson 780-672-6364 Sorenson finds $10 million for ads while cutting food safety

Conservative MP Kevin Sorenson and his party are trying to buy your support with

advertising paid for with your tax dollars. They’re increasing spending on advertising while cutting programs that really matter to Canadians. But Canadians are speaking out. Their votes are not for sale, and they want to know why the Conservatives are wasting their money. They want to know why Stephen Harper can find an extra $10 million for government advertising this year, but can’t pay for programs that really matter, like food safety. The latest round of Conservative cuts will not only hurt the economy, but also put our health and safety at risk. Less than a year after the tainted meat scandal at XL Foods, the Conservatives are cutting the budget for food safety. In fact, they’re cutting the budget for food safety at the Department of Agriculture by almost one-third. People will not buy Canadian meat, fruit and vegetables if they can’t trust that it’s safe to feed their families, but the government would rather spend your money on Economic Action Plan ads during the Super Bowl and the Oscars than on food inspectors. Mr. Sorenson and the Conservatives have made their priorities clear. Every billboard they paint, every commercial they film, and every ad they air send just one message: Canadians can’t trust the Conservatives with their tax dollars. Scott Brison, MP, Liberal Party of Canada Finance Critic 613-995-8231

Provincial budget receives an "F" When I am grading my students, I look at a number of factors. Most importantly I want them to use evidence to build a convincing argument. I want them to consider a number of different positions and arguments and take a stand on key issues. For these reasons, the Alberta government’s budget for 2013 would get an ‘F’ from me. This appears to be a government that is afraid to take a stand on economic issues and do what needs to be done. If you are to the right on the political spectrum and strongly oppose deficits, this budget will fail to satisfy you. For those on the left, the budget is obviously a disappointment as there is little, if any, spending on a wide array of social programs designed to build safer, healthier communities, or help people, especially children, out of poverty. If you are, as I believe most Albertans are, in the centre of the political spectrum, this budget – with its cuts to funding for key social policy areas such as education – also fails. This is a budget that will satisfy no one. In addition, this budget is shortsighted. By failing to invest in infrastructure, municipalities and education, this is not a budget that will prepare Alberta for the future.

Second Thought

Shauna Wilton, Political Studies, Augustana Campus, University of Alberta

The problem, it seems to me, is that for decades Alberta’s key social policy areas have been subsidized by oil and gas revenues. This has allowed Alberta to offer health, education and social programs comparable with other provinces without similar taxation or revenue. We have been spoilt. Now, however, this so-called “Alberta advantage” may become the Alberta disadvantage. It is not realistic to think that we can continue to have good schools, roads and health care if we do not want to pay for them. Modest changes

to income tax, corporate tax or even a small provincial sales tax would but Alberta in the black and provide the much needed funding for these programs. The fear that Corporations will run from Alberta due to modest tax increases ignores the fact that they come here for our resource, and will continue to come as resources become scarcer. Instead, we are sticking to the same path even if it hurts. Unfortunately, the most vulnerable people are working families, trying to make ends meet, and provide a better future for their children, youth, seniors and other disadvantaged groups in the province. The gap between rich and poor continues to grow at an alarming rate in Alberta, as does the economic burden carried by the middle-class. Something has to change. We have to make economically viable and socially responsible choices. Albertans need to decide what is important and they need to let their elected representatives know. Do we radically cut programs to save money and stay in the black without changing our revenue streams? Or do we decide to increase taxes and invest in the people and the future of the province? In this case, I do not think we can have our cake and eat it too.

WHY CLEAN YOUR FURNACE SYSTEM? TO CONTROL THE DUST IN YOUR HOME! Each time your furnace comes on, dust and airborne contaminates are carried with the flow of the warm air throughout your home. The air is recycled through the cold air returns. Over time, the system becomes saturated with contaminates and is a natural

breeding ground for bacteria, mold and fungus. Symptoms of poor indoor air quality may include rashes, eye problems, headaches, colds, coughing, dizziness, breathing problems and fatigue.

When Should You Clean Your Furnace System? • After Renovations (construction creates dust) • Before you have a new furnace installed • When moving into a new or “new to you” home (a fresh start) • Every 4-5 years as part of your regular home maintenance

Who Is Mountain Air?

It’s us, Jim and Diane Murphy, owners and operators. In 1995 “Mountain Air Furnace & Duct Cleaning” was born. 18 years have gone by. We still enjoy working for people; using what we have learned to help in whatever way we can.

Clean More Often • If members of your family have allergies • If you have a lot of activity in your home • If you have pets in your home • If you’ve had mice in your home

The bigger part of our job is giving your furnace and ducts a good going over, thus improving the indoor air quality of your home! We also clean gas boilers (helping to radically reduce gas consumption), dryer vents and wood burning chimneys.

Hair coloring is a preferred style choice for many people. Although some decide on a change of color for creative reasons, many individuals go under the bottle to cover up gray hair. But changing your hair color may offer other benefits than covering up signs of aging. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration estimates that two out of five women in America dye their hair, while roughly 11 percent of men dye their hair. Young people are just as likely to dye their hair as older ones. Therefore, there have to be other benefits to changing one’s hue beyond gray coverage – and there are. Here’s a look at a few.

ADDED BODY People with limp locks may want to give color a try. That’s because coloring plumps the hair shaft and can make hair temporarily thicker and with more body than before. SHINE AND DIMENSION Putting a subtle color on the hair can create varied hues that pick up and reflect light differently. This can make the hair seem more vibrant and interesting. MORE “POP” Just because a person was born with a specific hair color doesn’t mean it is the best complement to his or her skin tone or eye color. Changing one’s hair shade can make other attributes stand out more. Eyes may seem more radiant and skin less washed out. Experimenting with different shades can help a person find the best version of him or herself. NATURAL OPTIONS Today there are hair dyes in many different formulations. There are also all-natural colors that deposit color into the hair, rather than stripping the cuticle to then add back color with chemicals. No matter what formula a person wants to try, a salon or over-the-counter product may be able to offer it. SOLUTION FOR THINNING HAIR Many men and women eventually lose some of their hair or experience thinning patches. Hair dye can plump hair and create the illusion of more hair. This is a less expensive method to try than hair replacement surgeries or other treatments. For those who are interested in phasing out hair dye, especially if they want gray hair to grow in, they can work with a colorist to place strategic low-lights in the hair. This will camouflage the gray hair and enable the gray to grow in less abruptly.

"I can guarantee that every aspect of operations will look different in some way," said Dr. Payne. While BRSD is frustrated with the provincial funding cuts, it realizes it is better off than many other school divisions. "We have been through this journey for two years now and so we have already been through some tough times in trying to right size," said Dr. Payne. "Some of my colleagues in other divisions are just now starting to feel the impacts. I feel proud of the people – the staff and the

Camrose City council approved a 2013 capital budget and a 2013 to 2017 capital plan Feb. 4. Council had granted administration the authority to submit a capital budget and plan to council in February after administration requested additional time to thoroughly review the capital projects being advanced. The projected cost of capital projects in 2013 is $25,687,572. The transfer to capital from the 2013 general operating budget is $1,618,000. The capital plan meets provincial grant requirements and is also a planning tool for council and administration. The total budgeted cost of projects for the years 2013 to 2017 stands at $93,086,611, with 30.3 per cent going for engineering, 26.1 per cent going for administration, 12.1 per cent to wastewater, 10.9 per cent going to the water system, and 1.4 per cent going towards Corporate and Protective Services. "As with any long range budget, the further into the future we attempt to project, the more difficult it is to be accurate with forecasting," said Camrose City manager Damian Herle. "Further, once we are past year one of the plan, it is more the norm that additional capital projects are deemed worthy of inclusion." The capital plan includes $100,000 a year for wayfinding signage in 2014, 2015 and 2016. "There is still work that needs to be done (on wayfinding signage) with City Center Camrose and Tourism Camrose to get firm ideas that we can bring back to council for input," said Herle. The budget also includes $579,000 for the Augustana area infrastructure upgrade, with initial upgrades being done in 2014 and improvements being carried out in 2015 and 2016.

students – who have helped get us through these last two years. Without that we would be in a situation far worse than we are." In spite of all the changes, BRSD is committed, said Dr. Payne, to making students the top priority. "In every conversation and through every lens, no matter how we look at this, we are going to put students at the forefront. There is not an adult anywhere, a parent a staff member or a senior citizen who wouldn't say put the student first. That is how we will be viewing all decisions."

Council accepted a tender of $312,000 from Brandt Tractor for the supply of two 2013 John Deere motor graders, and a tender of $201,556 from Joe Johnson for the supply of a dual engine street sweeper. Funds for the purchase of the equipment are held in the City of Camrose equipment reserve. Aquatic Centre

Camrose Community Services general manager Paul Nielsen told council that administration is putting together a request for a proposal that will outline for consultants what it wants to see in a study on the Camrose Aquatic Centre. "We will be going to tender with experienced firms in terms of getting proposals," said Nielsen, "and are hoping to present a finished report as to the future of the aquatic centre and directions we need to take in terms of upgrades." The report will be presented to council for a decision on where the improvements will fit under the capital plan.

By Dan Jensen Alberta Health Services central zone area director Leanne Grant is proud of the health care system that has been developed across the province over the past few years. "Although we have gone through a lot of changes, we still have an excellent health care system," said Grant in a presentation to the Rotary Club of Camrose March 11. "A lot of people across Canada and around the world have been looking at us to see how we are able to enhance and sustain a best in class health system." Grant said AHS has enhanced home care in the immediate area to the extent that there is now a nurse on call 24 hours a day seven days a week. "We are doing a lot of work with home care. We have increased the nursing complement and we have increased the number of health care aides who come in and do the baths and so forth. We are really trying to support the families as a person's health changes." Grant also noted that efforts are being made by AHS to increase the number of supportive living spaces. "Bethany is opening up a new building in Bashaw, Bashaw Meadows, which is enhancing our supportive living bed count there." Grant said an area that continues to be of concern for AHS is the recruitment of doctors, occupational therapists and physical therapists. "We have had some successes with that as there have been two specialists who have made Camrose their permanent home in the past few months. In Viking we have seen an increase in physicians with three coming out there to make that their permanent practice." Grant explained that a new Central Alberta Cancer Centre that is being opened in Red Deer this year will provide another option for those who are currently travelling for treatments in Calgary and Edmonton. She noted as well that Camrose is the only rural site where hip and knee surgeries are being done. "We have done 320 electives this year, so that is excellent." Grant said AHS is still looking for more information about family care clinics. "There has been various information released by Alberta Health on what they are looking for in family care clinics and we are looking for the right communities for that to happen. The family care clinics really focus on wellness and chronic disease prevention. They are not to be a duplication of our primary care networks."

The CAMROSE BOOSTER March 19, 2013


Willms gives gift of life By Dan Jensen

Shannon Willms told about her experiences with organ donation at the launch of the Kidney Foundation's March fund-raising campaign in Camrose Feb. 21. Willms donated one of her two kidneys to her brother on Nov. 2, 2010. "Looking at it now, if I knew then what I know now of the whole process, I would do it again," said Willms. "It didn't seem as big a deal as people were making it out to be. It is just such a wonderful feeling to be able to save someone's life." Willms' brother was diagnosed with kidney disease in 1998, at the age of 34. "He spent six months in the general hospital in Kelowna during that time, and from then until about 2007 he just suffered a lot," said Willms. "His kidneys were causing him a lot of problems." In 2007 her brother started dialysis at the University of Alberta hospital. "He spent every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, four and a half hours ever day, on dialysis," said Willms. "He wasn't really able to work because after a day of dialysis he would be out of commission. It was hard to see him hooked up to that machine." Willms volunteered her kidney after it was determined that her mother was not a suitable candidate for organ donation because of high blood pressure. She said the testing process she went through made her feel "really good" because everyone wanted to make sure she was in good health. "I had numerous blood and urine tests, ultrasounds, ECGs and physical exams. I also met with a social worker, who helps give the donor the opportunity to express feelings and concerns, and does an evaluation to see if there are any pressures from other sources on being a donor." Willms stayed in the hospital for six days after the surgery, four fewer than her brother. "His surgery was almost six hours and mine was three," she said. Willms received tremendous support from family members and friends, as well as her employer, who told her she could take all the time she needed. "I was told I needed to be off work six weeks and I ended up taking two months," she said. Willms said her current levels of creatinine – a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function – are at 69, compared to 57 when she had two kidneys. "The doctors tell me that my body is functioning as if I had two kidneys." Willms said she is happy that her brother now has his life back. "He lives in Edmonton but works away a lot and he is doing amazing. He will be on anti-rejection drugs for the rest of his life but he would take that any day over what he went through with his years of kidney failure." Willms concluded her presentation by stressing the importance of organ donation. "Organ and tissue donations save lives," she said, "so talk to your family about your wishes and sign your donor card."

NORRIS, Paul James - "PJ" 'tis you must go and I must bide' It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. Paul James Norris (PJ) left us on March 6th, 2013, with his Irish grin, directing the show to the end. He was one in a million, funny, bold and brilliant; he lived life to the fullest. A devoted Catholic, he loved his wife, his family, learning, travel, a good political debate and his beloved Alma Mater, ST FX University. God was at the centre of his life and he was looking forward to seeing his mother and daughter Frances again in Heaven. He left this world surrounded by his loving wife of 62 years Miki aka Doreen, his children Sheilagh (Rod Ross), Diane, Dan (Deb), Colleen (Adam Brown), Tim (Sharon), Tony (Teena), Mark (Veronica) and Mike (Anita); grandchildren Mike (Chella), Tim (Laura), Kate (Jay), Jennie, Paul, Emeleigh, Ben, Sam, Courtney, Brittany, Ryley, Alex, Aaron, Bobbi, Molly, Claudia, Jack, Emma, Hudson, and Finley; and great-grandchildren Regan, Addison, Natasha, Will, Joe and Collin. Paul was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1926, the third child of Fred and Marie Norris. His family moved to Edmonton (1932-1938) for the early years and then Calgary where he spent his youth. He was fiercely independent, venturing out on his own at 14 years of age. Following a stint in the army and with the help of his mentor Judge Stack, PJ headed off to St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, for petroleum geology. There he spent four glorious years which to the end he treasured beyond measure and clearly shaped his life. Due to the Canadian Pacific Railways that provided free train passes to and from University, summers between University years were spent at his home away from home, the Banff Springs Hotel. This is where he noticed a beautiful brunette from Montreal arriving to work at the hotel, and always said it was love at first sight. He spent the next four years pursuing her. They were married in 1951 and remained solid partners to the end. The newly minted geologist and science graduate moved to Calgary. Babies started arriving (1952-1964) and they moved to Edmonton raising their children, committed to family, faith and spending summers at their treasured "Fintry" in the Okanagan. Paul completed an engineering diploma from University of Alberta in 1953. He started a Law Degree while doing Geology in 1954 and then established his own company, Norris Holdings Ltd. (Bench Ads) in 1955. He was active in many associations and societies; financial chairman of Edmonton Opera Association (1977); regional director, Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta (1968-1977); a leader in Serra, Friars Club and the Commonwealth Games planning committee, a member of University of Alberta Senate (1977-1980); and a founding member of the Royal Glenora Club. He was an Alderman for the City of Edmonton from 1977 to 1982. Paul and Miki built a home on his beloved South 40 at the Village of Norris Beach in 1990 and moved out to Pigeon Lake where he had spent his summers as a young boy. They lived there until three years ago when he lost his leg and ended up with significant complications that moved them to Camrose to be close to the care they needed. Dad loved reading, music, painting and debating everything and anything making sure you knew his opinions and the "right" way to look at any issue. He had an amazing sense of humour and loved to tell a joke, never missing a punch line. There is a big hole in our family and hearts and we will miss him terribly. A Funeral Mass in celebration of his life will be held Saturday, March 16th, 2013 at 11:00 a.m., at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 9830 - 148 Street, Edmonton. One of Dad's proudest accomplishments was providing scholarships to students in need at St FX University. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, please feel free to make donations to the Paul and Miki Norris Bursary (Est. 2004), St. Francis Xavier University, c/o Lynn O'Donnell, or (902) 867-5017.

God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you And He whispered, “Come to Me” With tearful eyes we watched you. We watched you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard-working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He chose to take the best. It’s lonesome here without you We miss you more each day. Life doesn’t seem the same Since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely And everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.” Each time we see your picture You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry, I’m in God’s hands, We’ll meet again someday!” Love Steve; children Larry, Wayne, and Valerie; grandchildren; and great-grandchildren.

The most important way to remember those you will never forget.

You can make a difference in the life of someone with kidney disease By Dan Jensen

Kidney Foundation of Canada Alberta/Northwest Territories branch executive director Flavia Robles believes we all have a role to play when it comes to supporting those who are living with kidney disease. "Each one of us can start

doing something," said Robles at the launch of the Kidney Foundation's March fund-raising campaign in Camrose Feb. 21. "Little by little the things that we do can make huge changes and differences in the world." Robles said one of the Kidney Foundation's main goals is to increase awareness of kidney disease so that people know the steps they can take to prevent it from occurring or obtain the help they need before symptoms start to progress. "It is so important to talk about prevention and the things that we can do. You can ask your doctor to check your kidneys every time you go for a physical. It is not something that is standard but if you request that your doctor will check. It is important to find the symptoms earlier on as opposed to letting them reach the fourth stage, when they really begin to show." Robles said the two highest risk factors for the development of kidney disease are diabetes and hypertension.

"If you know someone that has diabetes you can help them improve their lives by telling them to have their kidneys checked." Robles said the Kidney Foundation assists kidney patients by providing peer support, transportation to hospitals for dialysis, screening and blood pressure clinics, and short term emergency funding to assist with the cost of groceries and taxi rides to and from medical appointments. "In Northern Alberta and the Territories we provided short term funding to 114 patients last year. The number is low not because the need is low but because our resources can only support so much. We want to grow the dollars we have in the short term emergency fund so we can fill the gaps. We want to be there for them when they need us." The Foundation also provides Peddlers for Dialysis units which allow people to exercise while they are undergoing dialysis, sends children who have kidney disease to a special camp, and funds bursaries to post secondary institutions. "We can provide $1,000 per year to any kidney

patient who is going through post secondary education. We have one bursary recipient who is now in his fourth year of law school." A major benefactor of funds raised by the Kidney Foundation is the University of Alberta, which, according to Robles, does "stimulating and innovative" research on kidney disease. "Fifty per cent of the money raised is used to support the different research initiatives across the country. In Alberta we are lucky because we have lots of leading researchers that are doing great work. The study that showed how Tums positively affect kidneys was conducted here." Robles said in addition to its kidney care conference, the Alberta/Northwest Territories branch of the Kidney Foundation will be conducting fun runs and walks in Edmonton April 28 and in St. Albert and Red Deer on Sept. 8, and a beer-tasting event on Sept. 27. Robles said of the 3,900 people in northern Alberta and 6,900 across the province who are dealing with kidney failure at this time, 89 per cent are on dialysis. "It (dialysis) is something that tremendously affects their lives. They have to sit there for four hours a day, four times a week. I was talking to a patient and he told me it is like running a marathon without moving." Robles stressed the importance of giving the life to another by donating a kidney. "It is still a four-year wait for an organ donation," she said, "and out of those waiting for an organ transplant, seventy-five per cent are waiting for a kidney." Robles praised the work of volunteers who canvass on behalf of the Kidney Foundation, noting it is often the face to face contacts that do the most good. "I am humbled by your efforts because we can't do this alone," said Robles. "All of us are part of the puzzle and it is important that we are able to stand behind each other."

For the second consecutive year, a University of Alberta, Augustana hockey player has been selected as player of the year. Daniel Hope follows in the footsteps of Torrie Dyck who was player of the year last year. Hope is a fourth year Viking from Kelvington, Saskatchewan, studying business economics. Daniel played with the Melville Millionaires of the SJHL from 2007-09 as a team captain. In 2009, the Millionaires advanced to the league final. This season, while sporting a 3.9 GPA, the captain of the Vikings led his team with 18 goals and 25 assists to lead the league with 43 points. As a power play specialist, Daniel scored a league leading nine power play goals. Upon graduation, Hope is now the all-time career point leader for Vikings' hockey in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. “I am extremely proud of Daniel and his accomplishments with Vikings' hockey over the

past four years. This is a fitting award for the consummate team leader,” said coach Blaine Gusdal. “Daniel Hope has been a positive influence on our Vikings hockey program as he epitomizes the qualities of character that we strive for in our student athletes,” said assistant dean external relations Tim Hanson.

Purple Pinkie campaign By Dan Jensen

Members of the Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak and the Rotaract clubs at Camrose Composite High School and Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School will be asking for the help of local shoppers in a Purple Pinkie campaign at the east entrance to the Camrose Walmart store this Saturday. Those who make donations to Rotary's campaign to eliminate polio will have their pinkie marked with a washable purple dye. Purple dyes are used to mark children in developing countries world wide who have received an oral dose of the polio vaccine. In conjunction with the World Health Organization and the Gates Foundation, Rotary International is on the verge of eliminating the scourge of the disease of polio from the whole of the earth. Although it is largely unknown in industrialized nations, polio is a disease that still robs children of that right in other parts of the world. It is transmitted via contaminated water and food supplies, enters through a child's mouth, and then multiplies in the throat and intestines. In a matter of hours, the polio virus can enter the brain and spinal cord, destroying the cells that enable muscles to contract and causing paralysis. "If we do that, this terrible disease will never again harm a human being," said a news release issued by the Camrose Daybreak Club and two Rotaract clubs. "We must destroy these last bastions of the disease or risk its return."

Ukrainian dancers closer to fundraising goal By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dancers' travel group is counting on a bottle drive and a bake sale at the end of this month to reach its goal of raising enough money to send 14 dancers to Ukraine July 6 to 25. "We started two and a half years ago with the goal of raising $60,000 and as of this week we are still about $4,500 short," said Veselka Ukrainian Dancers travel group chair Kim Matiushyk. "It's not a huge amount but we are starting to exhaust our resources and we need to have all the finances in place by the end of this month." The dancers will be accompanied on the trip by their parents and grandparents, who will be paying their own expenses, as well as one instructor, who is paying half of her cost. "They are getting more excited every day," said Matiushyk. "They're starting to talk about the different things we have lined up for them over the 20 days they are going to be in Ukraine." Along with learning Ukrainian dance in a series of one-day workshops, the dancers will be able to experience the life and culture of a country that is far different than their own. They'll see the country, where some farmers still cut their grain using scythes and draw water from a well using a bucket and pulley system, visit metropolitan areas in four of Ukraine's regions, and take gifts to an orphanage. They'll also come close to Chernobyl, where they will be able to hear stories about the nuclear disaster that occurred on April 26, 1986. "We have asked the tour guide to expose the kids to many different aspects of the country so that they can expand their horizons and fully appreciate the fact that not everyone in the world is

The Camrose Women of the Moose have donated $600 to the Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dancers. Posing for a picture as Kim Matiushyk (back centre), chair of the Camrose Ukrainian Dancers travel group, accepted the cheque from Women of the Moose member Fay McDonald were: (left to right, front) Sage Geier, Sydney Matiushyk, Mallia Pattulo, Chloe MacIndoe, Jenna Wowchuk, (left to right, back) Lauren Matiushyk, Savannah Geier, Kassandra Stanton, Kaylyn Walgar, Daniel Matiushyk, Stefanie Olson and Sarah Labreau.

as fortunate we are here" said Matiushyk. "It should be an eyeopening experience, because most of them have never been out of Canada, or if they have, only been to resorts." Matiushyk said it is important to make the dancers who are making the trip understand that they are part of a global community where actions in different parts of the world have far reaching impacts. "Really the difference between us and those who live in Ukraine now is that most of our families were able to immigrate to Canada. It was just the luck of the draw that our parents and grandparents were able to come here.

We could just as easily be raising our children in that society." The travel group expects the new dances that are learned and the knowledge about Ukraine that is gained will benefit not only those who belong to the Veselka Ukrainian Dancers, but the broader Camrose community. Matiushyk feels the presentations on Ukraine she does in local schools on a regular basis will be greatly enhanced as a result of the personal photos and first hand knowledge she will be able to accumulate. Matiushyk has talked to parents of the younger children who will not be going and told them she will help organize another

Ukraine tour in five years for those children who are still too young at this time to cope with the long days of workshops and travelling bus. She said the tour operator has custom designed the trip to accommodate everything the dancers want to do, even to the point of making arrangements for one family to visit one village to which it has deep ties. Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dancers has between 30 and 40 children and six adults who practice at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre every Wednesday afternoon and evening. Instructors teach dance from different parts of Ukraine, each of which has

a different style or flavour. The dancers perform regularly at the Camrose and District Music Festival, as well as at special events like Jaywalkers' Jamboree, the Festival of Trees and Malanka. Members of the Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dancers have been able to raise funds by making and selling perogies, cleaning the ditch alongside a stretch of highway east of Hay Lakes, conducting barbecues and raffles and assisting the Moose Lodge with special suppers. Anyone who would like to make a donation for the upcoming Ukraine tour is asked to contact Matiushyk at 780-608-8261.

City reflects on past year at Chamber meeting By Murray Green

City of Camrose councillor Daryl Shillington presented a snapshot of the municipal accomplishments to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce at the Norsemen Inn on March 6. Councillor Shillington touched on several topics such as operating budgets, total capital projects, Cargill canola crushing plant, Camrose Performing Arts Centre, city hall, Camrose economic development plan, building permits, physician recruitment, core services review and the community transportation advisory committee. "City council approved the operating budget in early December. It will provide excellent service for the city, while being sufficient with taxes as much as possible. From this charge the operating expenditures are $45.4 million," explained councillor Shillington. "Overall, there was an increase in property tax of 3.63 per cent. The council is committed to maintaining current services with the least impact on taxes and a result of an increase in 2.53 per cent for that purpose." The chamber members were shown a chart of the capital projects for the next five

Daryl Shillington

years. "We need to maintain and replace the infrastructure. The capital plan is reviewed annually to ensure projects are rightsized and approximately timed. Only the 2013 capital budget is approved. In future years, it will change with changing needs or priorities and funding resources. It relies on grant funding from the province and federal governments," said councillor Shillington. Projects this year include the performing arts centre, city hall, recreation projects such as

trail upgrades, various infrastructure projects, which include roadways, utilities and other items. "In September, Cargill announced they will be building a canola crushing plant in the county. It will provide a positive impact for both the city and the region. Cargill has stated that Camrose is a great community to do business in," he added. Camrose is a prime canola producing area with dual train access. The facility will be capable of processing 850,000 metric tonnes of canola per year. Approximately 50 full time jobs will be created. "In June 2012, we had the ground-breaking for the performing arts centre. It will be completed in the spring of 2014 and our goal is to raise $5 million and so far the campaign has been doing well," Shillington reported. "With renovations no longer viable, a decision was made to build a new city hall. For the past two years potential sites have been reviewed. City halls are generally located in the downtown core, so we made the decision to build at the present location," informed councillor Shillington.

Staff will be relocated to the Mirror Lake Centre. The building will accommodate a potential increase of staff for the next 30 years or double the size. "We developed a strategic economic development plan, which was one of our top priorities. We received input from the community and stakeholders. The top priorities in the plan include investment in business attraction, retention and expansion. We are developing a branding program and new image strategy to attract a variety of people for investment opportunities. We are working on new communications and marketing," said councillor Shillington. "We are starting to see the number of development permits go up and in 2012 they were just over $43.7 million, which was a significant increase over 2011 (just over $30 million)," he added. Councillor Shillington reported that the number of lots that are available has been reduced and that the city will be looking at making more available in the future. The number of doctors has increased. "The physician recruitment committee was established to recruit and retain

doctors in the area. We still need more family doctors and specialists. This committee is trying to attract more physicians to come to Camrose," said the presenter. A core review was conducted to examine the roles of the city and its employees. "An inventory was conducted to see what services we provided and how many staff were involved in providing those services. We are looking at implementing some of those recommendations in 2013." The transportation advisory committee first looked at potential routes and services that were needed. "It was determined that the quality of life would be improved with a transit system. The committee recommended a two-year pilot project within the 2013-16 time frame," continued Shillington. The city is following the vision of developing a dynamic regional community focused on providing an exceptional quality of life. "Council and staff are committed to maintaining a high quality of life."

Tarpon named one of the best managed companies By Murray Green

One of the best managed companies in Canada has an office in Camrose. A strong emphasis on people, sustained growth and solid leadership are just a few reasons why Tarpon Energy Services Ltd. has earned platinum club status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. Membership in this club is reserved for companies who have maintained a standard of excellence for more than six consecutive years. Tarpon was first recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies in 2006 and is proud to become a platinum club member for the first time. “We deal with Tarpon across western Canada and into the United States. For us, this is a prestigious award. We are extremely honoured to receive this recognition after seven consecutive years of maintaining our best managed designation. Tarpon is only 10 years old, so it is a young company. It has been built with a solid foundation and solid people,” said northern combustion manager Derek Herder, at the Tarpon Energy Services office in Camrose. “It is a best managed company, but also it takes dedicated employees to go along with that. It is an honour to be able to post that and put it on our trucks. Martin Klevgaard is the local instrument technician, so he is one working with most of the local people. This award is a reflection of the passion, skill and dedication of the Tarpon team.” Tarpon specializes in providing high efficiency burner management systems and producing combustion optimization in electronics and controls. "It is nice to be recognized for all of the hard work that you do. It takes a team effort by everyone to receive an award like this," added Martin. "Anytime someone calls us for maintenance work, we go out and help people. We build a system and then maintain the instrumentation." The employees at the east end Camrose office are mostly local people who grew up in the area. "I'm proud to work for Tarpon and it is certainly the best company I have worked for," said Derek. Canada's Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadianowned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. This wellknown national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO forums. The winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Best

Tax free account defers your income H&R Block

A 2011 survey by ING Direct showed that more than half of Canadians have not opened a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA). Introduced in 2009, the TFSA is a tax shelter that allows taxpayers to deposit up to $5,000 per calendar year and not need to report the income or dividends earned by the account. For Canadians looking to save more, there are tax implications to consider before making a financial plan for your money. The Canada Tax Act says all investment income is considered taxable. This includes interest earned on savings in bank accounts or in savings bonds. So if you had any savings, you usually received a T5 slip around tax time and the income was included on your tax return. Now Canadians who are 18 years of age or older can open a TFSA. The TFSA is different than Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). Any contributions to your RRSP are tax deductible. If you made a $5,000 RRSP contribution and your annual income is $40,000, you could expect a federal tax savings of $750. This is not the case for a TFSA. Initially, the tax savings on a TFSA may not add up to huge amounts. If you deposited $5,000 in the account on Jan. 1, 2012, earning 1.5 per cent interest, you would have sheltered about $75 of interest in the first year. Whether or not you would like to contribute to a TFSA depends on your situation. It is not meant to be an everyday savings account and there are penalties if you over-contribute

to your account. But a TFSA provides more flexibility if you need to withdraw money. There is no penalty for withdrawing funds at any time and you still save up to $5,000 for the year. For example, if you had $5,000 in the account in January and then withdrew $2,000 in June, you could still re-deposit $2,000 the following year with no penalty. A withdrawal from an RRSP has tax implications and usually takes longer to withdraw funds. On the tax side, there are several things to consider. Are you expecting your income to increase or decrease in the next year? Are you going to be able to contribute the maximum amount to your RRSP? Are you planning to buy your first home and take advantage of the Home Buyers Plan? Do you need easy access to your money in case of emergencies? These are all questions to consider when deciding to open a TFSA. But if you have $5,000 or less in a savings account, it is a good idea to transfer it to a similar TFSA. This means the money you do earn in interest is tax free and you will not need to claim the income on your tax return.

GMC Acadia Winning combination of space and fuel efficiency

By Dan Jensen

The new GMC Acadia at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC features a new exterior and safety features, including the industry's first front centre air bag. Acadia, which launched in 2007 as GMC's first crossover and defined a segment that has since surged in popularity, had the best sales in its five year history in 2011. "With an award-winning combination of space, capability and fuel-efficiency, Acadia epitomizes GMC's never say never attitude," says McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. Interior functionality

Acadia retains the interior functionality popular with families, including the SmartSlide seating system, which allows easy access to the third row for both seven- and eight-passenger seating configurations. Likewise, both the second and third row still fold flat for class-leading maximum cargo space, including the ability to carry 48-inch wide sheet goods, such as drywall and plywood. Confident design

First impressions are everything, and the 2013 Acadia was developed to make a strong one. A chiseled, three-bar grille sits prominently in the new, more upright design. Diffused LED running lamps lend a premium look to the Acadia and are standard on all models, regardless of whether standard projector beam or

Every Acadia also comes standard with six months of OnStar's Directions and Connections service, which includes automatic crash response, turnby-turn navigation, roadside assistance, emergency services link and remote door unlocking. OnStar's RemoteLink smartphone app allows for remove vehicle status reports, extended locking and unlocking capability, and remote start functionality to distance limited only by cellular phone service, rather than the few hundred feet of the standard key fob. Technology leader

optional HID headlamps are selected. New taillamp detailing reflects the advancements up front. The new Acadia gets other subtle exterior design updates, including wrap-around rear glass and a new rear spoiler. New 18and 19-inch wheel patterns complement the vehicle's lines and stance. Refined interior

The Acadia's refined interior uses upgraded soft-touch materials, with French stitching that adds a tailor look and red ambient light flowing across the dashboard. SLT models get aluminum accents on the centre console, doors and dash. Industry-exclusive safety

The redesigned Acadia is the first vehicle on the market with GMC's new front centre air bag system, created to protect drivers

and front passengers in far-side impact crashes where the affected occupant is on the opposite, non-struck side of the vehicle. It deploys from the inboard side of the driver's seat and positions itself between the driver and front passenger. "While no restraint technology can address all body regions or all potential injuries, the front centre airbag is designed to work with the vehicle's other air bags and safety belts to collectively deliver an even more comprehensive occupant restraint system," said McClellan. Available safety technology includes Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems. These systems use radar to watch spots the driver may not be able to see – and provide visible and audible warnings to help prevent collisions.

The 2013 Acadia's redesigned infotainment functions feature capacitive touch controls that use electrodes to sense the conducive properties of objects such as the tough of a finger. GMC's Colour Touch Radio – first introduced on the 2012 Terrain – is standard in the Acadia. Available IntelliLink allows customers to seamlessly integrate their smart phones for hands-free calling through the audio system and Bluetooth streaming of popular internet radio favourites Pandora and Stitcher. IntelliLink also allows voice control of USBconnected iPods for easy access to stored music. Other audio system features include HD radio capability, a photo viewer and a standard rear-vision camera with dynamic grid lines that will display on the high-definition screen. New transmission

The 2013 Acadia benefits

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC from a next-generation Hydra-Matic 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission with better shift response and improved driveability. All 2013 GMC Acadia models are powered by a fuel-efficient, 3.6 litre direct injection V6 with variable valve timing, producing 288 horsepower (215 kW) and 270 lb.-ft. (260 Nm) of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, while the added control of all-wheel drive is available. Maximum towing capacity is 2,268 kg. Acadia's most popular options, including rear-seat entertainment, a Dual SkyScrape sunroof and a trailering package, continue to be available. See the 2013 GMC Acadia at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 3850-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Steps to prevent engine overheating By Dan Jensen

It is a common sight with which many an automobile owner is all too familiar: A car is stranded on the side of the road with the hood open and smoke billowing out as an exasperated driver looks on shaking his or her head. An overheated engine can render a car useless in a matter of minutes. A vehicle is propelled by an engine that ignites gasoline

and causes controlled explosions within. An engine can produce quite a lot of heat. Compound this with external temperatures and an overheated engine may occur. Other mechanical factors can also cause an engine to overheat. These include a faulty thermostat to regulate coolant supply to the engine and even an inoperable radiator fan. "Experts say an average car

engine is designed to operate within 195°F to 220° F. Anything above that could cause engine failure," said Lamb Ford service manager Dennis Yochim. "Overheating can cause a lot of damage to a car. It may damage and burn holes in the parts. Rings, pistons or rod bearings may become impaired, or one can blow a head gasket.

Spring is a season of rebirth for many people, who welcome the warm weather with open arms, especially those who just endured a harsh winter. Spending time outdoors when the weather warms up is a popular pastime for many people each spring. "Road trips taken by college kids or high schoolers hitting the road for spring break or professionals and parents packing up the car for a weekend getaway have become synonymous with spring," said Eric Elliott, owner of Elliott's Auto Care. "A road trip is a great way to get outdoors and make the most of a warm day, but there are a few tricks of the trade drivers can employ to ensure their road trips are as enjoyable as possible." * Give your car a good wash. Drivers who live in areas with heavy snowfall should give their vehicles a thorough cleaning before hitting the road for a spring road trip. Salt and sand can build up on a vehicle over the course of a snowy winter, so a power washing will help remove excess salt, sand or dirt and help the car run more smoothly. * Get the vehicle a tune-up. "A tune-up, including an oil change, should be part of your pre-trip planning," said Elliott. "Make sure winter hasn't caused any damage to the vehicle's body and ask your mechanic to perform a thorough inspection of the vehicle's suspension and brakes. If any problems arise, address them before embarking on your road trip." * Subscribe to a roadside assistance program. "Roadside assistance programs provide a measure of security to road-trippers. Many roadside assistance programs provide variety of emergency assistance for members, including: - towing service if your vehicle cannot start or operate safely, - battery service if your car's battery needs a jump, - flat tire service if you get a flat tire and don't have a spare or cannot change the tire yourself, - fuel delivery service if your car runs out of gas, and - lockout service if you lock your keys in the car.

"Services like these can act as a safety net should an issue arise when you're on the road and far away from home or far away from a service station," said Elliott.

you will have ready access to an ATM on your trip or at your destination. This means you may reach a point when you have no

cash on hand. While it's a good idea to bring some cash along on the trip, bring a credit card or cards as well should you find

yourself with no cash. A major credit card is likely to be accepted at most filling stations. * Invest in a road navigation system. "A road navigation system can be your best friend, helping you find your way in places with which you are unfamiliar. Road navigation systems can alert you to traffic conditions while providing directions and alternate routes," said Elliott. "Some systems will even alert you to nearby filling stations, lodging or restaurants.

* Recharge your cell phone. There is no use carrying a cell phone with you if it doesn't work. Cell phones are very useful when you have a breakdown or encounter an emergency situation. * Clean your radiator and air conditioning condenser. "The radiator and air conditioning condensor can accumulate dust and debris over time, " said Elliott. "If you're not allowing the air ton pass through freely you are placing a greater strain on the engine."

Steps to prevent your engine from overheating Continued from page 34

Coolant is designed to protect an engine to a point, but it can also become compromised under high heat. Boiling coolant may cause the radiator and hoses to burst." The best way to avoid engine and vehicle trouble due to overheating is to prevent an engine from becoming overheated in the first place. Here are strategies to employ. 1. Ensure that coolant levels are maintained and there are no

"Be sure the right coolant is being used for the particular vehicle." leaks that would cause coolant to drip out. "Be sure the right coolant is being used for the particular vehicle," said Yochim. 2. Dirty, inadequate motor oil cannot dissipate heat as well as clean oil. "Check the oil level and viscosity. Change the oil before a

long trip or if it looks past its prime," said Yochim. 3. Confirm radiator hoses are in good working order and do not look worn out. 4. Check that the radiator fan is working and that there is adequate air flow through the radiator. 5. Be aware of engine tem-

perature by watching the gauge on the dashboard. If an engine seems like it's about to overheat, here are some steps to take. * Slow down, and pull into the right lane. "Turn on the heat in the car and open the windows," said Yochim. "This may draw heat out

of the engine block, while maintaining a slow pace can continue to draw air over the engine. * Pull over and open the hood to allow the engine to cool. * Top off the radiator with coolant. Water can also work in a pinch. * Take frequent breaks during long road trips to allow the engine to cool down for at least 15 minutes. * Be sure to clear the radiator from obstructions, including leaves or insects that may have collected.

As the motor vehicle industry continues to evolve, the emphasis drivers and manufacturers place on safety continues to increase. But even though technological advancements have vastly improved driver safety, accidents still happen. One of the more concerning trends with regards to traffic accidents is when they occur. In spite of the fact that there are five times as many motorists during the day, statistics indicate that one-third of all accidents and roughly half of all traffic fatalities occur at night. Though that might seem counterintuitive, this peculiarity can largely be traced to a driver's visual acuity, which is reduced by 70 per cent at night. Replace headlight bulbs

Clear vision important Camrose Canadian Tire owner Dave Jewell reminds his customers to change light bulbs and wiper blades on a regular basis for safer driving. He also recommends that that they keep the headlamp lenses polished and clear so that they are able to provide visibility at maximum distances.

Addressing automobile lighting is one of the most underperformed vehicle maintenance tasks. "Many drivers do not even consider replacing their headlight bulb until it fails," said Dave Jewell, from Canadian Tire. "But as a bulb ages, its light output is drastically reduced by a host of factors, including humidity, electrical resistance and filament fatigue." Industry experts recommend replacing headlight bulbs every two years, and motorists should add bulb inspection and/or replacement to their list of routine maintenance tasks. Upgrade bulbs

Perhaps the best way drivers can improve nocturnal vision is to upgrade their headlight bulbs. "Some of the new headlight bulbs put out more light and create longer beam patterns than the standard halogen bulb," said Jewell. "There is even a special headlight bulb for motorcycles that not only improves vision but creates a unique orange reflection that helps distinguish the motorcycle from other vehicles on the road." Inspect wiper blades

Similar to headlight bulbs, wiper blades are often overlooked when it comes to vehicle maintenance. "Industry experts recommend wiper blades should be replaced at the change of each season or on three month intervals," said Jewell. "That's because the longer a wiper blade is on the vehicle, the more brittle and ineffective it becomes, putting drivers and passengers at risk." Drivers can also purchase inexpensive treatments designed to make the rubber more pliable and extend the life of the wipers. In addition, when inspecting or replacing wiper blades, top off the windshield washer fluid as a precautionary measure. Clean interior glass

Another way to improve visibility is to clean interior glass to remove any film buildup that can reduce vision and create a hazy reflection from the sun. "This is especially important for motorists who smoke in the car, as this film is typically thicker," said Jewell. "When addressing interior glass, take the time to adjust all side and rearview mirrors properly to cover all of the views around the car, especially the blind spots."

Vikings eliminated By Murray Green

The road to defending the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference hockey championship banner came to a dead end for the Augustana Vikings on March 9. Augustana staved off elimination with a 4-2 victory in Calgary on March 8. However, the SAIT Trojans won the fourth game 6-3 in Camrose to take the semifinal series. Adam Johnson scored twice to lead the Vikings to a victory in the SAIT Arena. Matthew Foster and Craig Cornelsen added single markers in support. Goalie Joel Danyluk made 26 of 28 saves, while Augustana fired 35 shots at the SAIT net. The Vikings outshot and outplayed the Trojans the next night in Camrose, but the difference was on the scoreboard. The teams were even 2-2 after the opening period. Brad Bourke and Darryl Gagnon scored for Augustana. SAIT netted two tallies in the second before the Vikings could reply on a Foster goal. The Trojans scored early in the third and added an empty net marker. The Vikings showered SAIT goalie Mike Tadjdeh with 42 shots, while Danyluk stopped 21. The Trojans are playing the NAIT Ooks in the final round.


Cycling tour of Alberta racing through Camrose By Murray Green

The province will host the newest pro-cycling event on the international cycling circuit. The Tour of Alberta Pro-Cycling Festival has been scheduled to be held Sept. 3 to 8. The Tour of Alberta will be a six-stage race, starting in Edmonton and ending in Calgary. "Camrose will be hosting a stage when the tour travels throughout rural Alberta, villages, towns and small cities, which rarely, if ever, have had the benefit of seeing, let alone hosting, major international sporting events in their communities," said local organizer Todd Markowsky. Alberta will only have five finish stages on the tour. Camrose, Red Deer, Drumheller, Canmore and Calgary have been selected as the top hosts in the province. "This is huge for Camrose and one of the reasons we were selected was because of our history of volunteerism," said Todd. "This will be like the Torch Relay as far as community involvement, only on a much larger scale." The Union Internationale Cyclistes (UCI) sanctioned the Tour of Alberta as a 2.1 race in September 2012, making it the highest level pro-cycling event to be hosted in Canada. The annual event beginning in 2013, will feature up to 16 pro-cycling teams of up to eight riders per team. With the 2.1 level sanctioning, up to half could include Pro Tour Teams, or the same teams that compete at the Tour de France or Giro d’Italia.

“A cycling event in Alberta, modelled after the classic road races such as the Tour de France and Giro D’Italia, has been a long-time dream of many Albertans, and it is a real coup to be the first race sanctioned at this level in Canada,” said Brian Jolly, chair, Alberta Peloton Association. “The UCI sanctioning recognizes both Alberta’s growing international reputation to host high quality, world class sports events, as well as its safe, warm, welcoming western hospitality, breath-taking scenery and varied landscapes.”

“It is exciting to see this world-class event coming to Alberta with its race route stretching from our rolling foothills and badlands to our majestic mountains and multiple communities." Alberta’s Rural Development Fund is providing $3.5 million in seed funding to help establish the event as a major annual cycling event and festival across the province. Additional funding is being secured through industry and corporate sponsorship, and the APA is pursuing a number of core partnerships

with provincial and community organizations to ensure the event delivers on its promise of a world-class sporting event that showcases the province, communities and people of Alberta. The tour will also include a number of community festivals and events up to and throughout the event at start, finish and pass-through communities that will showcase Alberta’s communities, culture, food products and services, and promote fitness and healthy lifestyles. “The Tour of Alberta is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our province as Albertans join with cycling fans from around the world in an international celebration of sport and culture,” said Alberta culture minister Heather Klimchuk. “Visitors will discover the rich heritage of Alberta and the incredible talent found in our communities as they enjoy the many cultural events held alongside the excitement of competitive cycling.” Based on similar races at this level, the Tour of Alberta is expected to draw more than 300,000 on-site spectators over the six days of the race, and over 30 million viewers in over 100 countries via national and international television coverage of the race. Daily live coverage of the race will also be available on-line and through mobile applications. The total economic impact of the event for Alberta is estimated at between $30 and $35 million each year. “It is exciting to see this

world-class event coming to Alberta with its race route stretching from our rolling foothills and badlands to our majestic mountains and multiple communities in between,” said Christine Cusanelli, minister of Alberta tourism, parks and recreation. “This event will not only inspire young Albertans to achieve their own athletic excellence, but it also represents a tremendous opportunity for us to attract even more travelers from across the globe to our province.” The official route and list of host communities for the 2013 Tour of Alberta will be announced in early 2013, and the route will change annually to include different communities and race routes each year. More information about the 2013 Tour of Alberta can be found at Cyclists in the Tour of Alberta will race more than 150 kilometers per day for six days; there are no rest stops or time outs. Cyclists in the Tour of Alberta will average approximately 40 kilometers per hour over the course exceeding the 1,000 kilometers they will race. The Tour of Alberta is perfectly situated between the current top North American events: the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado, Aug. 19 to 25, and the UCI World Cups in Montreal and Quebec, Sept. 13 to 15. Canada’s Ryder Hesjedal became the first Canadian to win a Grand Tour (the historic big three Tours of France, Italy and Spain).

Kodiaks take on Okotoks in second round of playoffs By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks were matched with the Okotoks Oilers in the second round of the playoffs when the Oilers won the fifth and deciding game against the Olds Grizzlys on March 12. "It's good to play Okotoks because they are a good team. I feel that when we play them, it brings out the best in us," said goalie Devin McDonald. "They are big and will hit to wake us up. We both have large crowds, so it will bring energy to both teams. It will be pretty easy to get up for the games." Camrose will be hosting home games against the Oilers on March 19 at 7:30 p.m. and March 23 (if necessary) with a rare 8 p.m. start. "It didn't matter to us who we played. Okotoks has a lot of big forwards with skill to watch out for, but we can play against that type of team," added Devin. "As a goalie, I try to prepare for each game the same way, regardless of who we are playing. I like to stay calm and not get too jacked. I like to focus on what I have to do." Giving Okotoks the first home ice advantage doesn't bother the Kodiaks either. "To win you have to play well and win on the road anyway. We want to go to their arena thinking we have to win, so let's do it right away. Then we focus on winning at home." The south division winning Brooks Bandits face the Drum-

heller Dragons in the other semifinal. The Camrose Kodiaks tamed the Calgary Mustangs with a 5-2 victory in game four of the southern division playoff ser-

ies in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, March 10. After a 2-2 second period, Camrose pulled away with three straight tallies in the third to win the series in Calgary.

Nolan Marshall scored twice, while single markers came off the sticks of Connor Mailey, Tanner Marshall and Tanner MacMaster. The Kodiaks goalie stopped

33 of 35 shots. Calgary goalie Ravi Dattani made 17 of 21 saves. "In the first game when I came in, I just wanted to give the team a chance to win. In game two, I felt a good vibe right from the start and I wanted to keep that going," said Devin. "It was easy for me to get up for the Mustangs because I'm from Calgary. A lot of my friends play on that team and now I have bragging rights for the summer." The match that broke the horses was the 2-1 win for the Kodiaks in overtime. After a scoreless first frame, Nolan Marshall started the bear's offence in the second. Calgary evened things up in the third to force an extra period. Luc Vandale was the hero in overtime by scoring on a feed from Nelson Gadoury and Marshall. Kodiaks' netminder Devin stopped 36 of 37 shots and was named star of the game. "I played at the Father David Bauer Arena as my home rink, so it is a familiar place for friends and family," said Devin. "A lot of Camrose fans went to the games and it was cool to receive a roar, a bigger ovation for our team than for the home team. It was nice because when you play away you usually receive the boos, so it was pretty cool. It definitely gave us more motivation to give the fans a good game. We didn't want to disappoint them and have them come all the way to Calgary for nothing."

Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat Reviewed by Jon Lindstrand

Over the course of the last decade Kevin Sutley, director and professor at Augustana, has chosen some of the most provocative and satisfying scripts performed in Camrose. Not one to back down from a challenge or steer clear of hot button topics, "Shoot/ GetTreasure/Repeat", Sutley's current production, is no different. Choosing seven of 17 short, epic plays by controversial playwright Mark Ravenhill, Sutley once again examines that which we see every day through a lens we rarely dare look through. The two-hour experience begins, with a chorus of average women, living their average lives while a war is being fought. The women speak of garden centres and juice diets all the while stating that they are "good people doing good things". As the women begin to plead "who would do this to good people?" and then accuse the audience of violent attacks and senseless murders of innocents, we are aggressively jolted into the position of being the aggressor in the conflict. We become those who need to be saved through the salvation of "freedom and democracy" brought by the west. We are forced to look at the same conflict through two lenses, "ours" and "theirs". The first half of the production is a sensory assault; the audience was shelled by choruses, cries, sighs and sobs of, for, and because of "freedom and democracy". Despair and hope are woven in and out, throughout the fabric of this script, all the while the audience was bombarded by barrages of physical, verbal, and psychological torment of individuals and cultures. Our examination of personal and societal resilience in war continues in the second half where a more methodical pace, yet equally disturbing scenes emerge. While the themes explored in this show are oppressively heavy, albeit perhaps misplaced, one cannot help but feel a sense of urgent hope. In the end we were left questioning. What freedoms we are willing to surrender for democracy's victory? What evils we are willing to commit to bring the blessing of democracy? What is freedom and democracy to us and how do those two ideals differ when we impose it on other countries? How do we, as a society and as individuals, deal with the cultural hegemony of mass media? What happens when war becomes entertainment (through

video games, pop culture or media), do we become desensitized to that "entertainment" and then, disassociate ourselves from the reality of the horrors of war? Is it natural to dehumanize "the enemy"? What are the ramifications of that dehumanization? This show deals with the effect war has on average lives on both sides of conflict, the nature of war. The themes are the conversations that happen around the coffee shop tables, in the truck, and in front of the TV; questions and statements about the world, the wars, ourselves and the others we share this world with. Although, ultimately the audience finds itself pleading for answers, thankfully, neither Sutley nor Ravenhill offer up solutions. We are left to question the extent to which we are truly “free”, how we secure our "freedom" and how we ensure that the West’s largest export, “freedom and democracy”, arrives to all of the places that we deem need our version of it. The set was industrial and minimalist but worked as a flexible canvas upon which to paint the seven different plays. Technically, the show was difficult and those in the booth should feel a great sense of pride in a show riddled with cues. The cast does an incredible job of a very ambitious undertaking. Developing and portraying the characters so that we come to know them and become emotionally invested, the actors have still allowed the characters to be universal enough to allow for us to apply our own impressions of who they are and how they relate to us. Although some individual performances were outstanding, the cast of 16 were solid. Saying “goodbye and thank you” to three senior student cast members in this production, Camrose has a lot to be excited about in terms of upcoming productions from Augustana. With the 13 remaining cast members proving that they are willing to be challenged and the capacity to succeed with such an emotionally charged scripting, our community will likely be blessed with some fantastic theatre in the near future. "Shoot / G etT reasure / Repeat" plays at the Augustana Theatre Centre March 20 to 23. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m. Warning: extremely strong language throughout. Tickets at the door.

Comedy tour assists Relay for Life event By Murray Green

The Camrose Relay for Life has brought in the assistance of the Boob Tour to help with fundraising this year. The stand-up comedy tour will be stopping at the Norsemen Inn on April 20 for an evening of laughter and to raise money for the local edition of the Relay for Life. The evening begins with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. and a buffet dinner at 6 p.m. The comedy performance starts at 8 p.m. and a dance will follow. Tickets are available for $45 for the full evening of fun. They can be purchased by calling Relay for Life co-chair Christine at 780679-7981 or team coach Janice at 780-608-8343. The Relay for Life is returning to the Camrose Composite High School track where the event started. It will start on June 21 at 7 p.m. and go until June 22 until 7 a.m. "Our goal is to have 25 teams and right now we have seven. Last year, the event started with 17, but some didn't show and others left before it was over," said co-chair Christine Palmerchuk. "We want to bring it back to being a good event and returning to the high school was our first move. People enjoy being outside, even if it is raining," said co-chair Charleen Marko. The organizing crew want to put the fun back into raising money for cancer research. "We will have a DJ all night, activities and games, a kids' zone for families, a movie tent and a name that tune contest. We want to have a lot of things to do during the night to keep everyone awake," added team coach Janice Maier. To enter a team, visit website, or call Janice or Christine. You can also contact the organizers to volunteer, or take part as a survivor.

School board wants to hear from parents and teachers Each year, Battle River School Division seeks input from the people most affected by the decisions made about the future of education – students, parents and school staff – in order to make appropriate plans for the years ahead. BRSD’s annual Satisfaction Survey is now posted on the school division website and school division officials are hoping that many students, parents and staff will take the opportunity to share their comments. “We truly want to hear people’s thoughts on how we’re doing,” says Assistant Superintendent, Instruction Rick Jarrett. “The feedback and comments that people make are a big help in letting us know what changes we should be making in order to provide quality educational services to children.” Mr. Jarrett also stresses that the more people who complete surveys, the better. “We need to hear from lots of people in order for the information to be useful. If only a handful of families respond, in a school division with 6,300 students, we’re not getting a good picture of what’s important to people.” The surveys are currently available on the Battle River School Division website at Families who do not have internet access at home can arrange to complete the survey at their local school.

Marathon helps your community By Murray Green

Help the Battle River Community Foundation and your community by raising a minimum of $20 in pledges and enjoy five movies, food, games and prizes from 11:30 p.m. on March 23 through 7 a.m. on March 24. It is all part of the Midnight Movie Marathon at Duggan Cinemas. Movie marathon participants will seek pledges from friends, family and businesses to raise funds for the Battle River Community Foundation (BRCF). "We are grateful to be the beneficiary of this event that creates community spirit," said Karin Naslund, BRCF director. "We see this as a great way to have the entire community involved, especially younger people who can stay up all night." The BRCF supports and donates to many charities and projects in Camrose and the surrounding area. "I would like to see youth involved more and giving back to the community earlier on in life.," said Karin. "This is a great way for them to get involved and see the benefits of the funds going back into projects, not only in Camrose, but the Battle River catchment area." People are starting to get excited about this event. "The Midnight Movie Marathon promotion was started in Camrose as an opportunity for Magic Lantern Theatres to give something back to the community as well," said Shelly Kucway, manager of Duggan Cinemas in Camrose. "This is a great way to give to one organization that in turn helps a variety of groups in the area. We supply the films, some sandwiches and drinks, so all of the pledges that come in can go to charity through the Battle River Community Foundation." The minimum pledge per person is $20. However, if people donate $25 or more, the BRCF will issue a tax deductible receipt. "We will have different prize levels to earn door prizes. Our grand prize is a one-year VIP pass for two people valued at $1,200. We make the marathon participation as lively as possible with games between shows to keep everyone awake," said Shelly. Bringing in pledges of $500 or more will earn you a chance at the grand prize. Lesser amounts qualify for other prizes. The movies shown in Camrose will include The Guilt Trip, Skyfall, Mama, Broken City and a surprise movie selected from the current attractions playing at Duggan Cinemas will wrap up the event. Register at Duggan Theatre starting March 18 during show times by bringing in your pledge form and donations. Participants can also register the evening of the event from 10:30 to 11:30 p.m. Must be 14 years and older to participate. Transportation will be provided by the Camrose Boys and Girls Club with pickup at Augustana Faith and Life Centre.

BRCF presents grant to Animal Protection Society By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Community Foundation presented a grant to the Battle River Animal Protection Society Feb. 8 to assist with the cost of providing shelter to abused and/or neglected animals. The grant was funded by endowments set up by Fred and Jean Molnar and Alice Ofrim to support the care of animals in the Battle River area. The Battle River Animal Protection Society is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization that was established in 2007 with the mission of helping neglected and abused animals. "All the money we receive in donations goes towards the feeding of the animals that we take in and the veterinary costs," explained Battle River Animal Protection Society president Laura Houseman. "We don't send animals to a home until they have been fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered." The average monthly cost of veterinary services and food, with supportive discounts included, is about $1,500 per month. "There isn't a shelter at this time so the animals stay at foster homes until they are healthy and socialized and ready to be adopted," said Houseman. "Many of the animals that are taken in have spent time living in back alleys and it takes a while to re-build their trust in humans." Global Pet Foods conducts an adoption day for the Battle River Animal Protection Society once a month. More information about the Battle River Animal Protection Society is available from Houseman at, or 780-678-5713. 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. The principal of the endowments remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local charities such as the Battle River Animal Protection Society. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make flow-through 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.
