Leaders from Alberta's rural communities and small business owners will be gathering in Camrose April 2 to 4 for the twelfth annual Growing Rural Tourism conference. An initiative of the Camrose Regional Exhibition, Alberta Tourism Parks and Recreation, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and Travel Alberta, the Growing Rural Tourism conference brings together groups who have embraced innovative tourism strategies and partnerships and those looking at how they might bring new sources of revenue and employment to their own communities. "Renowned Tourism experts and participants from a broad cross section will share successes, challenges and ideas for future growth," states the Growing Rural Tourism website. The Growing Rural Tourism conference has proven itself over the years to be a powerful tool in initiating strategic tourism planning. It has become so popular that many make it a "must attend" event on their spring schedule. "We have people attending from all over Alberta and parts of Saskatchewan," said Growing Rural Conference coordinator Jen Filip. Keynote speakers for the conference will include Wayne Lee, Wayne Lee Enterprises, Bill

Baker, BB & Co. Strategic Storytelling, Jeff Mulligan, mayor of the City of Lloydminster, and Shana Schuh, Schuh Biz Productions. Schuh will weave personal stories and humourous anecdotes, including ones from her rural adventures, around finding the significance, how persistence works, when laughter heals and a practical piece on preparedness. Growing Rural Tourism allows municipalities and businesses to present and share their product with all conference delegates by purchasing a booth at Alberta Shows Off. "The display is set up during the duration of the conference," said Filip. "We usually sell close to 30 booths." The 2012 Growing Rural Tourism Conference is paying fifty per cent of the regular conference registration for selected applicants through its scholarship program. In order to be eligible, applicants were required to show that they owned, operated or managed a full-time tourism business in rural Alberta and were committed to lifelong learning. Once the conference is over they must provide a written summary and share their ideas and experiences with their community partners or Chamber of Commerce.

A highlight of the 12th anniversary gala on the evening of April 3 will be the presentation of the fifth annual Rural Champion Award sponsored by Camrose Regional Exhibition, Tourism Camrose, Travel Alberta, Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation, Alberta Agriculture and the Alberta Association of Agriculture Societies. The award is designed to honour businesses, municipalities or communities in Alberta for outstanding accomplishments in rural tourism. The Rural Tourism Conference's 2011 Rural Champion Award was presented to Aspen Crossing Tree Farm and Garden Centre. "Aspen Crossing provides the ultimate quality of product to its customers, using superior assistance while preserving the history of the railway, agriculture and gardening," said Christopher Smith, manager of Travel Alberta's Holiday Card program. Tourism is one of Alberta's largest industries, along with the petro chemical industry, forestry and agriculture. It is estimated there are currently 150,000 parttime and seasonal jobs in this industry. Growing Rural Tourism conference sponsors include Camrose County, the City of Camrose, Northlands, Canalta, Vital Effect and Twist Marketing.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER March 20, 2012


Banack strives to make agriculture a better industry By Murray Green

Humphrey Banack has expanded his horizon from being a steel pipe employee to evolving as a leader in Canadian agricultural. He was named to the Camrose County Agricultural Wall of Fame on March 13 at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. Although Humphrey has served the Wild Rose Agricultural Producers Association as president, and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture as second vice-president, he hasn't forgotten about the community where he was raised. "What a ride it has been for me. Ten or 12 years ago I was grinding pipe and chasing my children around with hockey. To say I would be here today representing farms across Canada in international market places is amazing. It has been a wonderful experience," said Humphrey. "It's been a learning experience and a chance to meet great people. I spoke to the European farmers union and I was chairing a session on genetically modified products. I was speaking, and I had 10 minutes, in English and there are translators, translating in six different languages. I said because of the questions at the end, I wanted to keep my answers short and sweet. When I talked to the translators after, they told me short and sweet doesn't translate very well in other languages. It meant something trashy in the bedroom. It is experiences like that, I truly cherish." Some people don't understand what Humphrey does for the agricultural industry. "Some think I just travel around the world a lot. It has been a good experience to help with change. I look back and think about what would have happened if we didn't

change," said Humphrey. "The people I meet with are all farmers with ties on. I don't know how that happened, 10 years ago I wouldn't have thought about wearing a suit and tie. But, things have changed. I spend more time in my suit than in my work clothes." He pointed out that we are celebrating agricultural week. "Agriculture is still the biggest industry in both Alberta and Canada. We employ one in eight people in the agriculture industry. It is our largest renewable industry." Humphrey said he has his family to thank for putting him in a position for success. "My great grandfather was the first Polish settler off of the train in 1895 in Strathcona. Can you imagine in 1895 coming to Canada in an unsettled world. He went to the Beaumont area for a couple of years and then went to Washington to recruit more Polish settlers for the area. When he got back, there were a lot of French settlers in the area, so he went to Round Hill. There was a leader," explained Humphrey. "My dad was a county councillor for 12 years and he was a reeve for many of those years. We were born to be leaders." Today, many organizations struggle to find leaders. "Whether it is curling clubs, Elks or any other organization, it is the leaders that make things happen. I encourage everyone to be a leader when they leave here tonight. Be a leader where you are and it is not that tough," said Humphrey. "If someone with a Grade 12 education and flunked out of the University of Alberta can be the vice-president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, then everyone of us here can be a

president of a local organization. We can all be leaders." Growing food is a large and expanding industry. "The young people here are the future of agriculture. We have to work hard to make sure the industry is available to them when they decide to take this on full force. It is viable and potentially profitable in the future," added Humphrey. " He thanked his family for allowing him to expand his leadership. "I can't be where I am today without my family's support. I left Oct. 19 last year in the middle of combining for a meeting in Ottawa, and then three days later Terry joins me and we are off to Poland. I left my brother Willie in charge. The texts were fast and furious. There was a fire in one combine. When I got back, Willie said don't ever do

that again, but we all have to step ahead." Agriculture has to step up as well. "This industry has the brightest future on the planet. We just celebrated reaching seven billion people last October. We expect to see nine billion people by the 2040s to '50s. That is nine billion people to feed, a 25 per cent increase. The demand for food will increase and we are living in a country, one of six, that will have an excess of food. Agriculture has a huge up side. I want to try my best so that the next generation has a bright future." He also told people to be aware of farm safety. "Our industry is the only one where we live in the middle of our work site. Be aware of that," Humphrey added. "I going to leave you with this

thought. Everyone who eats is involved in agriculture." Humphrey was in the pork business for many years and served as a delegate with the Alberta Pork Producers. Humphrey also had a cow/calf operation in the past, and is now strongly focusing on grain and oil seed operations. He has exhibited wholehearted commitment and dedication to his community by being integrally involved in all aspects of life and organizations within the Round Hill community. Humphrey has served his Round Hill and area community on numerous committees and boards, including the Elks, agricultural society, homecoming, recreation, church and numerous others.

Luz honoured for dedicated service to the community By Murray Green

Mildred Luz was honoured by Camrose County and named to the Wall of Fame posthumously. Any time someone needed a hand, she was there for them. "Even as a little girl, she always looked after her brothers and sisters as she thought it best for them," said daughter Dolores Ross. "This was the formation of a woman dedicated to her job as she saw it. Mom and dad met at Dried Meat Lake and fell in love. They had a little hiatus in their relationship when, at age 16, she left to go to Olds College and enrolled in the home economics program. When you read the year book they say she was happy-go-lucky with eyes of laughing blue." After two years of college she came back and married Art in 1945. "Mom and dad had three sets of twins and another daughter Judy. At the age of 26 she was the mother of six children under the age of six, but we lost Linda's twin Larry," said Dolores. "I asked her how she dealt with that. She looked at me a little puzzled and after talking, it was clear that she had dealt with it and moved on with her life. That is who she was." With three sets of twins, came a lot of laundry. "In the early days it was as many as 80 diapers a day and it didn't mat-

ter if it was 40째C below. It had to be done," said Dolores. "I'm really grateful for those heaps of laundry. One day while hanging the laundry, she heard blood-curdling screams coming from the cattle trough. She came just in time to haul Sharon out from certain drowning. So, you can add rescuer to her list of accomplishments. She came to the rescue of all of us, sometimes as adults, at times when we didn't even ask." As well as keeping the house clean, the laundry done, she still had time to take the children to music lessons, 4-H and hockey for son David. Even school lunches were organized. "I remember

every morning how she would grab a loaf of bread and spread it out like a deck of cards. She would have three kinds of sandwiches and we would have one of each. She added scratch cookies and two pieces of fruit. She always made sure we had enough to eat for that long bus ride home." Time management, efficiency, the ability to prioritize and organize are intrinsic to who Mildred was. "On top of this she had a huge garden, raised turkeys and chickens. People would stand in line to buy her chickens because they were the size of turkeys." She always made sure the

children had new outfits for the first day of school and that everyone received a gift for Christmas. "Even before her passing, she made sure that all 17 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren received a gift and she never missed anyone," continued Dolores. "I didn't realize growing up as a little girl, the sacrifices that she must have made to be able to do all of that. In between all of the work she had a sense of humour that she never lost." Mildred didn't forget to have fun. She volunteered, loved to skate and dance, bowled, played cards and played games with her grandchildren. "She worked hard

to make her home and community a better place. She always kept her focus on the end result. She believed that if she worked hard enough, just stayed up late enough, that things would come out right. And, they usually did." The legacy Mildred left in the community was a result of the foundation she built with her commitment to her family, her deep desire of doing what she believed was best for others and an unflagging spirit that kept her involved. "Mildred strongly believed in the value and strength of the farm family, rural community and the contribution of women to both," said Heather Broughton, who nominated her. Her most cherished membership was in the Heather Brae Women's Institute, where she remained an active member, with perfect attendance for over 50 years. Mildred was a pioneer for women in rural leadership development and inspired many younger farm women. She also used her skills to help with the Sifton Recreation Association, the Alberta Seniors games, the MS Bike Tour. She was a rural enumerator and returning officer, and was with the Canadian Cancer Society, to name just a few of her accomplishments.

First reading for improvement bylaw By Dan Jensen

A number of residents in southwest Camrose are being asked to come up with some extra cash to pay for road and curb repairs. Camrose City council gave first reading to a bylaw that would impose a local improvement tax of $149,735.72 on 83 property owners along Enevold Drive between 61 A Street and 68 Street. "Abutting owners are liable

for 50 per cent of the project cost under the City local improvement policy," explained City of Camrose infrastructure services director Mark Barrett in a presentation to City council Mar. 12. The total cost of repairing the pavement and curbs is $350,000. The City of Camrose portion would be $29,264.28, with the balance coming from the Alberta Municipal Infrastructure and the Federal Gas Tax Fund. Payouts would range from

a low of $704.40 to a high of $16,619.61. The City of Camrose will be holding an open house on the paving project in room one of the Edgeworth Centre from 4 to 6 p.m., Thursday, March 22, to discuss the project schedule, who residents can call if they have a problem during construction, how much residents will have to pay for the work, and how residents can stop the project if they don't agree with it.

Alberta’s municipalities are growing, which means there’s a growing need to provide police and fire services, and build and maintain roads, bridges, public transit systems and waterlines. Out of every dollar paid in taxes, the federal and provincial governments collect ninety cents, with just ten cents left over for your local community. It’s time for a new relationship between municipalities and the province, where municipalities have the resources to do their jobs. It just makes sense. Learn more at

Letters to the Editor

CHEQUE FOR BALLOON CHAMPIONSHIPS Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson (right) presented a Community Infrastructure Program grant of $15,000 to Ray Telford (left), from the City of Camrose, and John Phillips, from the Northern Lights Hot Air Balloon Club, to assist with the hosting of the Hot Air Balloon Championships in Camrose last fall.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Financial literacy education “Financial literacy may come to class,” read a bold headline on the front page of the Edmonton Journal (Mar. 13/12). It got my immediate attention and I read on to find that Dave Colburn, chairman of the Edmonton public school board, had expressed the view that schools should play a bigger role in teaching students money-management skills. The subject will be pursued by the board. Colburn says that the financial community as well as parents and others are supportive of the concept. Apparently Alberta Education is considering the matter but notes that it would take both time and money to make financial education a mandatory part of the curriculum. Ontario has already done so and is in the process of implementing the program in Grades 4-12. Ontario intends to start it at the kindergarten level within a couple of years. There is much evidence that money-management skills have been lacking. At all levels, from individuals to governments, almost anywhere in the world, debt levels are too high. On the world scene, Canada seems to be doing better than others. That, however, is of limited comfort because countries are so very interdependent. Canada may have goods to sell but, if other countries cannot afford to buy our products, we suffer, too. On the personal level, Canadian households are reported to be carrying very risky levels of debt, and are not adequately planning for retirement income. Lack of financial management skill is said to be caused, in part at least, by the increasing complexity of today’s financial world. In my humble opinion, I believe the age-old basic skills of financial management are the same as ever and are not complex at all: don’t spend more than you earn; don’t accumulate debt you can’t handle; develop the saving habit from an early age so that one always has a financial cushion in case of unexpected emergency. What has changed dramatically over time is the temptation to overspend. Unfortunately, temptation is hard to resist, and credit card use has thrived on that human frailty. A credit card in one’s wallet gives one a false sense of ability to pay and often the card holder has no idea of the actual cost of an item when the high interest rate on unpaid credit card balances are added. We are told that 30% to 40% of Canadians carry interest-bearing balances on their credit cards. Without question, irresponsible credit card use is a recipe for disaster. Financial literacy plus self-discipline would prevent much of today’s personal hardship. Also, knowledge of the relationship between government tax revenue and government services would moderate citizens’ demands for public entitlements, the provision of which may require government debt. Money management training is available in some homes but not in others so, as we always do, we turn to the schools. While that is an appropriate place because it would make financial education accessible to all students, it would likely mean dropping some other course which may also be important. (As an aside, in my view, we have already dropped too much instruction in basic literacy and numeracy courses: reading, writing and arithmetic.) I will be watching the progress of attempts to include financial literacy in Alberta Education’s school curriculum, hoping that it will be included but that it does not replace something equally important.

Regarding “What’s to fear in the non-believer?” last week’s Second Thought, by Sean E. Moore, I think Mr. Moore has a blind spot. While deploring prejudice toward atheists, (or nonbelievers, one is quite unsure to which Mr. Moore is referring by the end of the essay) Mr. Moore exhibited some prejudice of his own. While speculating on the source of this prejudice he vaguely attributes it to “religious institutions.” Prejudice means to judge without regard to evidence … and Mr. Moore admits “there’s no consensus in the research community” to support his speculation. However, despite the lack of consensus Mr. Moore goes on to suggest “One reason for why this prejudice is so strong is that it has long been sanctioned by religious institutions …” At best, this is an example of the very “stereotyping” he decries in his article. According to Mr. Moore, “religious institutions” are sanction prejudice. A charge for which he admits offers no evidence. He goes on to suggest that “religious institutions” view “non-religiousness as a direct competitor for believers.” Which brings me to another point, we all believe in something. Nonbeliever is a negative attribute. It says nothing about what you do believe. I assume Mr. Moore believes in something – such as prejudice is bad or psychology is good – but when he self-identifies as a non-believer he tells me nothing. He may be as virtuous as Mother Teresa or as vicious as Mao Zedong. I cannot tell because he has not told me what he does believe. We now approach my final point. Everybody believes something. A person who self-identifies as an unbeliever is either lying to himself or to me. If he does not know what he believes then he has failed in one of the basic measures of wisdom. If he knows what he believes but does not wish to reveal it then he has failed in one of the basic measures of ethics. In either case my mistrust is not prejudice but prudence. Even non-believers believe that. Dave Gosse, Camrose Albertans deserve respect

As this tired old bloated PC

government lurches towards the next election, we are seeing a growing list of issues that leave an increasingly bad taste. In just the last few weeks alone, almost daily in fact, we have seen over-whelming evidence of bullying, intimidation, name calling, obscene ‘transition allowances’, voting irregularities, illegal donations, taxpayer funded partisan ad campaigns, greed, allegations of corruption and even lying. This government is currently under the hand of our new unelected Premier Redford who insists that “her” government represents the values of Albertans, what Albertans want. These are not the values of the Albertans I know, and they sure aren’t mine! When was the last time it was OK to call someone a “malicious liar”? When is it fine to tell an elected school board to “watch what you say or you won’t get a school”? To tell an elected municipal official who criticizes a funding process that her remarks are slanderous and to “apologize or we won’t come to your breakfast”? Or to blame a municipality for contributing to a political fundraiser because “it’s up to them to know the rules”? To promise to call an inquiry into “a culture of fear and intimidation” within our health care system and then to come up with an inquiry into “queue jumping”? To cover up investigations, whitewash reports, and lie about what Albertans have said? These are not Albertans’ values; these are symptoms of an increasingly out-of-touch, corrupted ruling party and a government that after 40 years is desperate to do whatever is necessary to hold on to their selfappointed role in running our province. The MLA for Battle River Wainwright has said that “these issues shouldn’t be debated in newspapers and media.” He is wrong. As long as decisions are made behind closed doors and without citizens taking part, as long as Albertans are being made the scapegoat of this government, this is exactly where we need to have debate! In fact, we need to have debates in every possible media, in coffee shops, in curling rinks, at town hall meetings, in living rooms and offices and work camps, and the more Albertans that take part, the better. Albertans deserve respect from their elected officials, and must be able to discuss, debate, criticize, collaborate and share ideas honestly without fear of consequences and threats from their government. Albertans deserve better. Midge Lambert Alberta Party Candidate, Battle River - Wainwright A huge bouquet to Camrose County

Thank you to all the organizers of the Camrose County 2012 Agricultural Awards Banquet. What a great event, from the music, speeches, presenta-

tion of awards and, of course, the wonderful meal of Alberta grown food prepared by the staff at the CRE (from scratch). We were one of 11 families to receive a Century Farm Award. The Uglem homestead was established in 1903 by Mikal, who had immigrated from Norway to the USA in 1890 and then to Alberta. Dale Uglem is the fourth generation farming the same land. Again, we say thank you, and it was an honour. Carol and Larry Uglem, Bawlf Great cake challenge

Duggan Mall would like to congratulate Malories Cakes and Catering for the fabulous event of the Alberta Cake Challenge that was held at the mall on March 10. Feed back has been nothing but positive as it was very exciting and new to Camrose. It is awesome to see a newer business take the initiative to promote their own company as well as benefitting the public and merchants of our community in such an entertaining way. Job well done; we all look forward to the next event. Duggan Mall Merchants Camrose Landowners: lift up your heads

This letter is in response to Marion Leithead’s letter and to Murray Green’s written warning in the March 6 Camrose Booster. Lawyer Keith Wilson led a meeting in Camrose two weeks ago. His message is very alarming. I was totally surprised that there are no checks in place in our constitution that would prevent our government from confiscating our land for their political purposes without any obligation to compensate us and then arbitrarily pass a bill that blocks any appeal to the judicial systems of our country. We are all so busy making a living they can get the whole job done and not until they take over our property and our businesses, or make it impossible to run our businesses viably, do we wake up and realize that no longer are we a free, productive province. Those who don’t suffer from the land and business takeover will buckle under the crippling power bills this province will surely be saddled with if these government Bills # 24, #50 and #36 cannot be undone. These power lines , unnecessary as they are, will have to be paid for somehow. “Somehow” which the government regularly translates to “taxpayer.” The Alberta Landowners Council is fighting valiantly to educate and protect us with their meetings and website but they’re going to need some help.

Who's Afraid of Beauty? Beauty is a subject of study in philosophy and art. I am not a philosopher, although I do have a Ph.D. (meaning Doctor of Philosophy) attached to my name. I am also not an artist, although I do co-teach a biologyart course at Augustana. But this article is not about my identity crisis, it’s about beauty. Do I, as a biologist, have a right to talk publicly about beauty? And furthermore, what is beauty in the first place? These are both tough questions to answer. The first one is answered by the fact that you are reading this article. For the second one, there is no clear answer in the literature, so I am not going to attempt to provide one. Despite the fact that nobody really knows what beauty is, we all have a sense for beauty. And, when we compare what different people consider beautiful or ugly, we can generally conclude that most people agree on what is beautiful and what is not. But there are always those exceptions which make a universal definition of beauty impossible. Are insects beautiful? The surprising answer is yes! Nearly all participants of the 2011 survey on the perception of beauty in the natural world held at Augustana Library as a part of the exhibition of tropical insects and seashells “Creatures of Wonderland”, answered affirmative! And there were not a few weird bug-loving participants in that survey, but 187 regular people of all ages and professions who took part in it. There was not a single negative answer and only a couple neutral ones. People were impressed by the beauty of insects! But how is that possible? Aren’t insects known for being creepy? I have to admit that I personally selected what I thought to be the most beautiful species to display. But still, there were thousands of species of beetles, moths, bugs, grasshoppers, and praying mantises exhibited – most of these when mentioned just as terms or words, usually trigger negative feelings in the general public. And yet the general conclusion of the survey was that insects are beautiful. Many people also added that they did not even dream that insects could be beautiful, but they eventually changed their mind after seeing the exhibition!

If all that comes as a surprise, obviously the real face of the natural world is somehow hidden from the average person. Why? Who is afraid of beauty? Is there any conspiracy, or do we just naturally tend to ignore the beauty of our world? Insects constitute about 80 per cent of all animal species on our planet. If we talk about biodiversity, we talk about diversity of insects. On my quest to study these magnificent creatures, I was happy to find a brand new, three volume encyclopedia on biodiversity in the Augustana library. However, when I opened it, I was greatly disappointed by the fact that there was not a single picture present of any animal or plant that make up this biodiversity! Instead, there were only graphs, charts and tables. I wonder, in the days of omnipresent digital photography, who still manages to make biodiversity a boring subject? It seems that the people who study the most exciting creatures make the most boring books about them. We scientists have somehow mastered the ability of taking the fun out of our study. So, I decided to be different! Why don’t we celebrate the beauty of nature when we talk so much about the need to protect it? How are we going to find enough public support to protect the rainforests if an average person has no idea what glittering six-legged treasures are out there? Shouldn’t we contemplate the beauty of the inhabitants of the rainforests and keep them alive for our grandchildren to enjoy? Now, starting on March 20, 2012, “Creatures of Wonderland” will be offered to the community of Camrose again. Admission is free. Come and see what biodiversity is really about! Take your chance and check out with your own eyes if insects are beautiful or not. Specimens will be exhibited in 60 glass top drawers. For those who did not participate last year, there will also be an opportunity to participate in an anonymous survey on aesthetics in nature. The exhibition will be organized in “state of the art” Dr. Roger Epp Conference Room on the second floor of the Augustana Forum, and run Tuesday, March 20 to Thursday, March 22 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Welcome, and please don’t be afraid of beauty!

OPEN HOUSE Wednesday, March 21, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We would encourage anyone interested in CKS programming to attend this informative evening

Tax deferral program would allow seniors to stay home Alberta seniors would be able to stay in their homes longer, under proposed new legislation introduced by the Alberta government allowing them to take advantage of homeownership. Bill 5, the Seniors’ Property Tax Deferral Act, would help seniors who own their homes pay their property tax through a home equity loan. The program would be available for the 2013 tax year, helping seniors free up funds by deferring all or part of their property tax until they sell their home.

“We’ve heard from seniors that it gets harder and harder each year to pay their increasing property taxes, especially because their retirement incomes stay the same,” said George VanderBurg, Minister of Seniors. “A seniors’ property tax deferral program will give seniors the opportunity to take advantage of the value in their home. It will help them to be more independent and live in their homes longer, without the burden of increasing property taxes.” Under the proposed legislation, to be eligible for the pro-

gram, you must be a senior and a homeowner, residing in Alberta. Eligible seniors would enter into a loan agreement with the Government of Alberta, and the government would pay the property tax on behalf of the senior. The senior would repay the loan, plus interest, when they sell their home. Currently, there are more than 170,000 senior households in Alberta eligible for the program. To follow the debate online, visit the legislative assembly website:

Skating carnival this weekend The Camrose Skating Club will be holding its annual spring carnival at the Edgeworth Centre's EnCana Arena this Saturday. The show will be getting underway at 2 p.m. "We have 230 registered members this year, most of whom will be participating," said Camrose Skating Club president Pam Duggan. The theme that has been chosen for the 2012 Carnival is Once Upon a Time. "We believe it (the theme) makes sense because each of our skaters this year has his or her own unique story to tell," explained Duggan. "Over the course of the year they have had the opportunity to act out different roles as part of their dance routines, tests and competitions" The Camrose Skating Club offers levels of programs for children and adults at all levels of ability. CanSkate introduces chil-

dren aged three and four to the sport's basic fundamentals. "They spend about a half hour a week learning to walk on their skates and get a sense of balance," said Duggan. Canpower Skate is a 45-minute program offered once a week (two different groups) that helps the kids learn the skills they need for playing hockey. "They learn to do crossover steps and how to stop by turning their feet," said Duggan." Both the CanSkate and the Canpower Skate programs have proven to be very popular to the point that the instructors have had to turn children away in order to ensure that the ones who are registered receive the best possible learning experience. The StarSkate development program is for anyone over the age of 11 who wants to have fun and learn how to figure skate by themselves or with a group. Those who wish to go further may then enter the StarSkate advanced program in which they receive private instruction from a

coach and work towards certain milestones. "We have had a few girls this year achieve gold status in many disciplines," said Duggan. The carnival won't feature the members of the Camrose Skating Club's adult program. "We set up the program for adults who want to get together once a week for some synchronized skating just on a recreational basis," said Duggan. "There is the possibility that a competitive group may come out of that next year but we will just have to wait and see. There are already quite a number of skaters who have expressed interest in doing something like that." The Camrose Skating Club spring carnival has always enjoyed good attendance. "It is a chance for family members and friends to cheer on the skaters and see what they have learned during the course of the year," said Duggan. "It is a lot of fun for them to see the progress that has been made."

Sangkor, the women’s choir at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta, directed by Brendan Lord, will present its spring concert, Connections, with special guest Blue Thistle. The concert will take place on Sunday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Faith & Life Chapel on Augustana Campus. It has become Sangkor’s tradition to share the stage with

another ensemble at its spring concert. Through shared concerts of this nature, members of both ensembles learn a great deal from one another while presenting a rich and varied concert opportunity for the public. This year Sangkor is thrilled to be performing with Camrose’s exceptional treble quartet, Blue Thistle. As a result of this “connection,” two new arrangements

have been made for the concert which Sangkor and Blue Thistle will perform together. In addition to other shared pieces, the concert includes a wide variety of music including gospel tunes, folk songs, and art song. Tickets for the concert are available from all Sangkor members and at the door. For further information, please call 780-6791532.

Song writing contest held By Murray Green

Non-westerners like to call us rednecks. National and international news outlets all but ignore us — except when it comes to the oil sands, the murder rate or hockey. That means we’re pretty much the only ones responsible for blowing our own horns. Songwriters across this province have the chance to spread the word about Alberta and win $10,000. It's time for the second edition of the AllAlbertan Song Contest, sponsored by ATB Financial, CKUA Radio and Alberta Music. Sunday, April 8, is the deadline to enter. Six finalists will be selected, based on Internet votes and a panel of judges will select the winner. Danny Vacon, the leader of Calgary’s The Dudes, was named the first winner with his ditty, "Gold and Green." Jinting Zhao's "Refinery Lights," a top three finalist, worked hard on her song. “Inspiration is not always found in the most obvious places, especially when you think of Alberta, where there are a lot of obvious choices,” Zhao offers as advice to this year’s contestants. “Think of Alberta as less of a place and more as a setting for experiences.” The winner will be revealed on Saturday, April 28, at Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar in Camrose. It’s the last of six Untapped Alberta shows, which features some of the province’s top musicians. Audio/Rocketry, Jesse Dee and Jacquie B, and local band Punch Drunk Cabaret will perform at Scalliwags. Tickets for the show are $10. For ticket outlets, visit Untapped Alberta’s site. All proceeds will be donated to local charities. The six shows will be recorded for broadcast on CKUA Radio.

The City of Camrose launched the fundraising for Canada Day fireworks by donating $5,000. "Our goal this year is to again reach the $10,000 mark, so we have a good show for everyone," said committee chair Jane Cherry-Lemire. "We reached that goal last year. We have some different things happening this year that we will announce at a later date." The committee is planning a full day of activities and ending it with the big bang of fireworks. "It's the queen's diamond jubilee, so we are hoping for extra funding, but we haven't heard anything yet," added Jane. "We won't hear about the amount of the grant until later. If we do receive extra funding, it will go into the general fund for the activities of the day." The day will be used to salute the War of 1812. "We are arranging for some people to do a few things along that theme. We are hoping for a group to perform a one act play for us," said Jane. "So far, I'm impressed with what the community is putting together to help us out." Other events will depend on the amount of funding and on volunteers. "This is the launch of the fundraising for the event and we encourage businesses and individuals to donate by calling me at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre at 780-672-9949, or drop by city hall because we have little money boxes set up."

Matiushyk to attend World Children's Baseball Fair By Murray Green

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Daniel Matiushyk earned the trip of a lifetime to Japan by writing a letter to Baseball Alberta. He will be attending the World Children's Baseball Fair in July.

Daniel Matiushyk knows first hand that the pen is mightier than the sword. The 11-year-old Ecole Sifton School student wrote a letter to Baseball Alberta to enter a contest to attend the World Children's Baseball Fair (WCBF) in Mie, Japan. Much to his surprise, they wrote back. "I was a little shocked that they picked me as one of five players from Alberta to go to the baseball fair," said Daniel. About 15 countries will be sending five players each for the camp. The Camrose peewee baseball player (last year he played at the mosquito level) will be travelling to Japan to represent Canada at the fair from July 22 to 30. However, Daniel won't be packing his bags. "They said leave all of your baseball equipment at home," said his excited mom Kim. "He will be receiving a uniform, ball glove, bat, cleats and everything he needs at the camp. They just said bring an empty bag to take everything back home with you." Although Daniel wasn't around to witness when baseball greats Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves and Sadaharu Oh of the Japanese league used regular season games as batting practice in becoming the home run kings for their countries, he has a feeling

he may get to know more about them. "It will be great to meet some good players and coaches at the camp. I love baseball and I want to learn more. This is a good opportunity to improve my skills," said Daniel. The WCBF is an event held annually to promote worldwide baseball expansion. WCBF was founded in 1989 by Mr. Aaron and Mr. Oh and is supported by many of baseball’s greatest players. The World Children's Baseball Fair was established in the interest of fostering an environment of world understanding and cultural exchange through the celebration of baseball. "I think it will be so cool to have coaches from various other countries teaching me baseball. I hope to learn a lot," said Daniel. Recognizing that the sport of baseball promotes teamwork, good health, discipline and friendship, Mr. Oh and Mr. Aaron conceived the idea of the WCBF as a means of creating goodwill and fellowship among the children of the world. During this event the children will participate in morning baseball clinics led by International Baseball Federation chosen coaches, while the afternoons and evenings will be filled with cultural and recreational activities. Fifteen countries have

been invited to participate in the 2012 event. Daniel is currently a Grade 6 student and plays baseball in the Camrose competitive division. He also participates in junior curling, the junior lifeguard program, Ukrainian dance and many inschool sports programs. He even volunteered at the Birkebeiner cross-country skiing event. Last year, Daniel played for the Camrose Cougars team coached by Darcy Lynes, Daryl Zimmer and Stacy Lorenz that collected silver medals at provincials. The honours student also wrote about his experiences in baseball and how it has made him a better player and person. "I have been taught that everyone should respect him or her self and others, is responsible for his or her own actions, and is responsible to his or her community to be a good citizen. Those are the three Rs of being a good citizen," said Daniel. Daniel is almost as excited to experience the culture as he is about playing baseball. "It will be different not having my family around, but it will be good to experience a different culture and tour the country. This is an opportunity that I have, that I wouldn't have had without baseball." Daniel enjoys playing the hot corner, third base, and first.

Jews for Jesus speaker to visit First Baptist Church Tzachi Danor, of Jews for Jesus, will speak at First Baptist Church on April 7. The congregation invites all to attend. Jews for Jesus uses creative methods and contemporary issues to present the message that Jesus is the Messiah to Jewish people around the world. Tzachi Danor serves as a missionary trainee in Jews for Jesus' Tel Aviv, Israel branch. Danor is a native of Akko, Israel, and grew up as his mother's only child, yet part

of a large, extended Moroccan Jewish family. After completing his Israeli military service, Danor moved to Dallas, Texas. He struck up a friendship with a Messianic Jewish woman who introduced him to many other believers, regular study of the Scriptures, and, ultimately, recognition of 'Y' shua as the promised Jewish Messiah. His mother's illness was the impetus for his return to the land – this time as a new believer in 'Y' shua. As his mother recovered, Danor

became involved with various Messianic ministries in Israel. His love for sharing good news about salvation in 'Y' shua with others connected him with like-minded people at Jews for Jesus. After serving an internship with Jews for Jesus and marrying his wife, Sarah, in August, 2009, Danor is now a missionary trainee at the Tel Aviv branch. Jews for Jesus was founded in 1973 by Moishe Rosen, who revolutionized Jewish evangelism with his creative

approach. Rosen died in May, 2010. David Brickner, a fifth generation Jewish believer in Jesus, has been the organization's executive director since 1996. Brickner has kept Jews for Jesus on the cutting edge as the ministry has expanded and established branches in 14 countries, including the United States, Brazil, Israel, Russia, France and South Africa. "We exist to make the Messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide," Brick-

ner states. "There are still a few that haven't heard of us." To Tzachi Danor and other Jews for Jesus staff, the objective evidence of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, and the transformation in their own lives provide ample evidence that Jesus was who he claimed to be – the Jewish Messiah. Danor will be happy to answer questions after the presentation. Call 780-6723832 or 780-672-9847 for more information. There is no admission charge.

CLBI embarking on spring tour March 23 By Dan Jensen

Sixty CLBI students and six CLBI staff members will be boarding a bus for their annual all-school artistic tour Mar. 23. "We're going to be doing 10 concerts at 10 different locations throughout northern Alberta and B.C.," said CLBI director of admissions Darby Murphy. The final concert will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church April 1, beginning at 7 p.m. CLBI has been making preparations for the tour since last summer. "We started collecting ideas and music before school started in the fall, and have been preparing in earnest for the last month," explained CLBI choir director Carolyn Olson. Tour performances will include a combination of choral music, band, dance, art, drama and personal testimony, all centred around the central theme of Renovation. "We want to show people that just like building renovations, which we had a lot of at CLBI last year, there are a lot of aspects of our own lives that need to be deconstructed, renovated and cleaned up," said Olson.

CLBI students Tara Salt, Julie Cameron and Jessica Haugseng prepare a skit for their upcoming spring tour.

Not all the performances will have an outwardly religious message. "We want the concerts to be a place where the audiencew can listen to a gentle invitation to consider God working in the world," said Olson. CLBI will be donating ten per cent of the free will offerings it plans to take at the con-

certs to a World Vision operated rehabilitation centre in Uganda for child warriors. "There are children in Uganda who have been kidnapped from their homes and forced to become soldiers," said Murphy. "Our hope is that the offerings will be able to help them in some way."

Olson said students are getting excited about the tour and the chance it will give them to showcase talents that, in some cases have been hidden away. "For some of them this will be their first opportunity to sing for an audience with a choir or take part in a drama skit. Steven Bealau, a second-

year student from Outlook, Saskatchewan, said the theme of this year's tour will be one to which many people who attend the concert will be able to relate. "It relates to people's lives and how God works his changes through circumstances and people." Murphy said a lot of the young people who saw the concert when it came to their town or city last year are students at CLBI now. "They saw the energy that our students displayed and decided that they wanted to be part of that." Upcoming fundraisers Students will be collecting pledges at the concerts for three fundraisers that will support the rehabilitation work that is being done in Uganda. The first, on April 4, will see students take a vow of silence, while the second, April 11, will be a 24-hour fast. The third, on April 18, will be a Warrior Relay, where students will take turns running for a period of eight hours. Anyone who is interested in making a separate pledge in support of the rehabilitation is encouraged to call the CLBI office at 780-672-4454.

County survey offers additional insights By Murray Green

The Camrose County satisfaction survey offers some insight as to how ratepayers view the services that were delivered. Camrose County Council will be sorting through the data in order to provide some direction for the future. One of the most vital factors of a successful organization is communication. "The surveys will also give reactions as to how we are trying to communicate with residents,â&#x20AC;? said Reeve Don Gregorwich. County residents were asked to complete the survey to provide information about current issues, county operations, and public communication. In total, 3,358 surveys were mailed to every address that pays taxes. "A total of 1,052 surveys were entered, to represent 31.33 per cent of the residents. The County also received four surveys after the January 20 deadline. These surveys are not included in the overall results, but are included in the survey final report," added Steve. The budget for the project was set at $10,000: however, the final bill will be $11,030.20, not including staff time for entering, consolidating, formatting and reporting. The survey has provided council with a lot of good information to use in the future. "What is our plan for using the information we have received,?" asked councillor Trevor Miller. "Our plan is to first accept this officially," said Reeve Don. "It is intended to be used and not sit on the shelf. We will accept the good comments where they are, and investigate the comments about the concerns people have. I think it is each person's

(councillor) responsibility to be familiar with this, so we can deal with the information contained in this survey. It is our intention to develop an action plan." Councillor Trevor asked if they should set a half day or a couple of hours aside to discuss the issues. "It was my thought to have a full day to discuss this and develop a strategic plan. This is perfect for that plan and we do that in November," said Steve. "I agree we should all read this and be familiar with the information. There is a lot of good and guiding information. Let's not just leave it until then, let's be ready for discussion and comments as well. Make sure you read it and familiarize yourself with it," said councillor Rob Bjorge. "I'll go along with a November meeting, but I would like to see us examine this sooner," said councillor Trevor. "We have already changed some of the ways we do things, such as snow plowing through our meetings," said Steve. "Maybe we should put some of the changes we have implemented into the newsletter, so people can see we are making changes based on their recommendations," added Trevor. Question 1: of the 914 people that answered the question, 58.2 per cent indicated that infrastructure and roads are their most important issue facing Camrose County. Question 2: of the 1,024 people that answered the question, 96.9 per cent rated the quality of life in Camrose County to be good to very good. Question 5: of the 180 people that answered the question, 48.3 per cent said that quality of life in Camrose County was worsening because of high taxes.

Question 7: of the 983 people that answered the question, 84.7 per cent are satisfied to very satisfied with the way council is running the county. Question 8: of the 971 people that answered the question, 87.4 per cent are satisfied to very satisfied with the overall level and quality of service in Camrose County. Of the 1,004 people that answered the question, 30 per cent are dissatisfied with the current level of road maintenance. "I thought that was a very telling one," said Steve. "It tells us that almost a third of the residents are not satisfied with the road maintenance." Question 9: of the 979 people that answered the question, only 72.6 per cent said that they get good to very good value for their tax dollar and 24.9 per cent said that they get a poor value for their tax dollar. Question 10: of the 985 people that answered the question, 78.4 per cent indicated that Camrose County should maintain service to maintain current tax level. Question 11: of the 1,013 people that answered the question, 37 per cent indicated they are not sure how responsive Camrose County is to its residents. "Do we need to do a better job of communicating what we do in the county? We have an extensive job in getting our name our there, and yet 37 per cent are not sure what we do," added Steve. "Maybe we need to expand that a little bit." Question 12: of the 1,019 people that answered the question, 34.2 per cent indicated they do not receive enough information from Camrose County and 30.9 per cent (of 993 - Question

13) said that Camrose County is doing a poor job of communicating to its residents. 71.9 per cent (of 1,010 - Question 15) prefer newsletters as their source of information from Camrose County. "Our newsletters are part of our strategic planning in 2012 and we are sending out more newsletters. We are going to look at the cost of direct mail to deliver them to every household," said Steve. Question 16: of the 1,030 people that answered the question, 59.23 per cent said they have not visited the Camrose County web site. Question 20: of the 827 people that answered the question, 81.4 per cent are satisfied to very satisfied with the service they received from staff at Camrose County. Question 21: of the 184 people that answered the question, 91.3 per cent indicated that staff never resolved their issue or never returned their call. "That is something I am going over with staff right now," Steve said. "Shouldn't that be 61 per cent and not 91,? asked councillor Trevor. "What I did was add the 60.9 per cent that was not satisfied with the answer and the 30.4 per cent of those that didn't call back and put them together," said Steve. Councillor Brian Austrom indicated that if you add up all of the totals they are more than 100 per cent. "The point of it is that it is high and we need to look at it," added Trevor. Question 25: of the 1,011 people that answered the question, 21 per cent indicated that in the summer, roads are in poor driving condition and 22.7 per

cent (of 993 - Question 26) indicated that in the winter, roads are in poor winter driving condition. Question 27: of the 1,000 people that answered the question, 74.7 per cent are not using the mobile recycling trailer for a variety of reasons, mainly because they did not know about it, the schedule does not work for them, or they take their recycling to Centra Cam in the city of Camrose. Question 28: of the 1,006 people that answered the question, 88.2 per cent do not attend the Municipal Awareness Week for a variety of reasons, mainly because they did not know about it (56.7 per cent) or they did not have the time (37.8 per cent). Question 30: of the 1,015 people that answered the question, 96.5 per cent do not attend the County Bus Tour during Municipal Awareness Week for a variety of reasons, mainly because they did not know about it (49.1 per cent) or they did not have the time (36.3 per cent). Question 32: of the 960 people that answered the question, 73.0 per cent indicate that roads should receive the highest priority from Camrose County and 37 per cent indicated specifically snow removal. Question 33: of the 1,016 people that answered the question, 74.1 per cent have lived in Camrose County for more than 10 years. "There were also many good comments received from the surveys which have been included in the final version of the survey," said Steve. "Once council goes through it, we can post the results to the web site."

It’s something most people don’t want to think about: death. But you might want to ponder it now so your family will have a financial cushion when you pass away. That’s where life insurance comes in. It gives your spouse, children or an aging dependent parent money when you die. It can also be used to protect your business, pay off debts, leave money to charity and cover estate expenses. You make periodic payments, or premiums, which vary based on your age, sex, medical history and the type and amount of insurance you are getting. There are two kinds of insurance — permanent or term. Permanent insurance, also called whole life insurance, offers fixed payments and builds equity on a taxdeferred basis. Term insurance, also called convertible, is

paid if you die during a specified period. It starts off with a low premium that increases over time and does not build equity. Talk to your insurance company to learn what insurance is best for you. Many employers offer spon-

sored life insurance programs, or group insurance. These policies are generally less expensive than plans offered outside work. You can also usually get coverage regardless of your health, and policies often give continued coverage during dis-

ability. Most plans deduct a little bit from your pay cheque each week. If you leave your company, you can usually continue paying your premium or convert your coverage to an individual policy. The amount of insurance coverage you need can depend on factors like how much your spouse earns and how much savings you have. Singles without kids may not even need life insurance. Review your coverage every few years. You might want to change your policy if you have married or divorced; a child or grandchild has been born or adopted; your health or your spouse’s health has changed; you have bought a new house; you or your spouse makes more money; or you have a child entering college. Talk to your insurance company about what would work best for you.

In memory of

Anne Nikiforuk January 2, 1925 – March 19, 2011 God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, and 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 now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Love Steve, Larry (Linda), Wayne (Theresa), Valerie, grandchildren and great-grandchildren


Remembering “Papa” In loving memory of

William Kerr April 8, 1939 – March 20, 2011 Through tears, we saw you fading, And we watched you pass away, Our hearts were almost broken, We wanted you to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful and free from pain How could we wish you back with us, To suffer that again? It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone For part of us went with you, On the day God called you home. If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, Please pick a bunch for us Place them in Papa’s arms, Tell them they’re from us. Tell him that we love and miss him, And when he turns to smile Please place a kiss upon his cheek And hold him for awhile. Tell him that remembering him is easy, We do it every day But there is an ache within our hearts That will not go away. Friends, don’t think of him as gone away, His journey has just begun Life holds so many facets And this earth is only one. Think how he must be wishing That we could know today That nothing but our sadness Can really pass away. Think of him as living In the hearts of those he touched For no one loved is ever lost And he is loved so much. Lovingly remembered by Lois and family

Railway Station develops mentorship program By Dan Jensen

Camrose Railway Station Museum & Park has pioneered a new Youth Mentorship Program designed to help junior high and high school students serve the community while developing future job skills. "It's a training and orientation program for our youth volunteers," explained Railway Station volunteer coordinator Barb McDonald. "It will match them to station opportunities that best suit their personal interests and abilities." Flashback, the digital history project, will teach students about the handling, storing and documenting artifacts as well as develop their skills in the area of photography. "They would be taking digital pictures of all the artifacts at the museum and putting them into the computer," said McDonald. The All Aboard the ECS Express school project will help students learn teaching methods while assisting ECS groups and other school programs that visit the station. "This runs during the day so not everyone will be able to

participate, but for those that can and are interested in going into a career in education, it would be a great experience," said McDonald. The Green Thumb gardening project will encourage students to learn about different plants and organic gardening and share that information with others. The Centre Stage interpretive project is designed for students who have an interest in drama as a way of bringing history at the station to life. Students would do role playing, story telling and dramatization. Possibilities Unlimited, the event planning project, will help students develop leadership and organizational skills while letting their ideas and creativity shine. "They would create eyecatching displays and assist with the planning and facilitation of events," said McDonald. Team Teacup, the tearoom hosting project will help students develop self confidence while serving the public, as well as acquire organizational, team and baking skills. All six of the projects will give the students the chance to

learn more about the railway station. "They are beneficial for both the students and for us," said McDonald. "The students receive training and experience and we get their energy and enthusiasm." The Camrose Railway Station Museum & Park mission is to mentor youth in the community, providing opportunities for growth, skill development, meaningful experiences and creative engagement, while enhancing public programs. It believes by mentoring youth it can create a new generation of youth supporters who feel a sense of ownership in the station, strengthen the relevance of the institution within the community, create opportunities for new ideas and directions that are totally unseen, create a builtin, road-tested museum friendly labour pool for staff recruitment and create an opportunity for community partnerships. "We have always enjoyed strong support from youth volunteers with the events it holds throughout the year," said McDonald. "Many of the students come back to volunteer for event after event."

Many opportunities

While its mentorship program is aimed at youth, Camrose Railway Station Museum & Park has volunteer opportunities for all ages. "We are always looking for new talent, new ideas and new enthusiasm," said McDonald. "It could be anything from painting and helping with archive management, to writing letters, coordinating safety management and serving on the board." Robbie O'Riordan has been a member of the station and park volunteer team for more than ten years, assisting with many station events and playing a major organizational role in the Garden Tours and Victorian Tea. She has committed many hours to running the gift shop and organizing white elephant sales, and is always willing to lend a hand when there are extra jobs to be done. "One of the biggest impacts that Robbie has made to our team is her inspiration and role in the development of the Friends of the Station," said McDonald. Anyone wishing to volunteer at the Camrose Railway Station Museum & Park is encouraged to call 780-672-3099.

Grade 9 students receive high school preview

CCHS Grade 11 student Anne Nederlof works on an acrylic painting for her Communications Technology class. By Dan Jensen

Camrose Grade 9 students received a preview of what life will be like in high school at a CCHS open house Mar. 6. CCHS principal Jim Ofrim told the students about the courses they will have the chance to take and the opportunities with which they will be presented as they work their way towards a high school diploma in three years' time. He described the communications, construction, cosmetology, design studies, fabrication and welding, fashion studies,

foods, mechanics and fine arts labs as being state of the art. "Once you get in the stained glass lab with Mr. Lindstrand you will never want to get out," he said. "You can create a project that you will be able to take home." Ofrim said the music program, under the direction of Tom Spila, is second to none in the province. "He (Spila) has invested his whole life in his students. "The choir and the band have more than 100 students."

CCHS Grade 12 student Ian Steinwand prepares a design for a new stained glass creation.

Ofrim said high school students have the opportunity to test their knowledge and skills against students from other parts of the province in competitions like Skills Canada and science fairs. CCHS vice principal Lorne Berg told the students that, for the second consecutive year, the school received the gold medal at the Science Olympics. "It is the first time that has ever happened," he said. He added that the 37 teaching staff are very specialized in their respective

disciplines and are able to teach with great passion. "That is one of the strengths of our school." Ofrim said that students in the high school's Rotary Interact program will be going to Belize during the spring break to conduct mission work. "For kids who are interested in leadership opportunities, Interact is a unique program." Camrose Composite High School has undergone two modernizations since it was built in 1963.


Hospice Society seeking public input Residents of Camrose/Wetaskiwin and surrounding rural district are encouraged to attend one of two upcoming public forums as part of the needs assessment being conducted on behalf of the Hospice Society of Camrose and District. The researchers are particularly interested in hearing from those who have experienced the death of a friend or loved one and would like to share their opinions about what services and supports were available or should have been available. In particular, input is sought about: â&#x20AC;˘ What worked well in the current system? â&#x20AC;˘ Are there areas for improvement in the currently available end-oflife services or supports? â&#x20AC;˘ What could be done differently to support families and patients? The researchers have spoken to professionals involved in the provision of end-of-life care, but these two forums provide an opportunity for the general public to express their opinions. The first forum will be held in Wetaskiwin at the Peace Hills Lodge (4501-60 Street) from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28. The Camrose forum is scheduled for 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 31, at the Rosehaven Heritage Building (4612-53 Street). Light refreshments will be served on both occasions. The recently formed Hospice Society has been successful in obtaining non-profit and charitable status, and has been working to inform and educate the public about the hospice philosophy and the advantages of having such a service available in our community. Once the results of the needs assessment are in, the group will formulate plans for their next steps with the ultimate goal being a place where people can die in peace, comfort and dignity, with support provided for them and for those who care about them. For more information contact: Odell Olson, Chair of Needs Assessment Committee (780672-0787), or David Hargreaves, Hargreaves & Associates (780-9133741).

Ford Super Duty Do more and do it faster By Dan Jensen

You'll be able to do more, do it faster and do it as costeffectively as possible with the new Ford F-Series Super Duty at Lamb Ford Sales, Camrose. "The 2012 Ford F-Series Super Duty delivers bestin-class rankings in the attributes that matter most to heavy-duty pickup customers: towing capability, power and fuel economy," said Lamb Ford Sales sales manager Brett Read. Powerful diesel

The 6.7 litre Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel – designed, engineered and built by Ford – delivers 400 horsepower and a massive 800 lb.-ft. of torque with a 20 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency over previous generations. "The engine has proven itself with over 16-million km of cumulative testing," said Read. The standard 6.2 litre V8 gas engine has 15 per cent better fuel economy than the previous engine and produces 405 lb.-ft. of torque and 385 horsepower. The six-speed SelecShift automatic, standard with both engines, has a torque converter with low-speed lockup capability that allows it to run efficiently at lower rpm. The high-strength sinter-metal carrier, with its patented Ford rocker one-way clutch, easily handles the extreme low-end torque of the diesel engine and the high speeds of the gas engine. Its high-capacity, high-efficiency fluid filter extends fluid- and filter-change intervals up to 240,000 km. Integrated engine-exhaust braking on the diesel powertrain helps improve control while towing with less wear and tear on the brakes and transmission. "You'll appreciate the functionality when you're hauling a heavy load or towing a trailer, and especially when you're descending steep grades," said Read. A durable coil-spring front suspension is part of the heavy-duty, independent Twin I-Beam setup on 4x2s, and a rugged twin-coil monobeam setup on 4x4s. With XL 4x4s you get a solid front axle and manual locking hubs for excellent articulation and reliability. XLT, Lariat and King Ranch 4x4s feature electronic shift-on-the-fly operation, giving you the ability to change your drive setting with the convenient turn of a dial on the instrument panel. The factory-installed 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Prep Package works with the factory-installed Ford Custom Accessories 5th-Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Kits by Reese to get you towing in no time. The equipment also gives you the strength of an under-the-bed frame crossmember and the utility of a flat cargo bed floor. The LCD productivity screen offers you a pre-towing checklist and can store settings and information on different trailers that you tow. Standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control is the only electronic stability control system in the class that utilizes two gyroscopic sensors to help keep all four wheels firmly planted. "It automatically enhances vehicle control in wet or slippery conditions," said Read. Keeps you connected

Ford Super Duty's SYNC eliminates the need to search for your phone or media player by touching a but-

subscription. Surf up to 120 channels, including 100 per cent commercial-free music, plus the best sports, news, talk and entertainment – all across Canada. The fleet tracking system enables you to monitor your vehicles and keep them on the road with key diagnostic /information maintenance reports. The beneficial Ford Work Solutions option can be accessed from any computer connected to the internet.

ton on the steering wheel and saying things like "Call Kevin" or "Play Artist: Toby Keith." Once paired, the system recognizes your phone and automatically transfers your contacts to support voice calling. The voice-activated Navigation System features a vibrant 6.5-inch LCD touch screen with interactive maps you can zoom and scroll. Play DVDs while Super Duty is in Park, store nearly 10 gigs of your digital music, and much more with this easy-to-use system. Sirius Satellite Radio comes with a six-month prepaid

The lockable front centre console handles hanging files, holds a laptop, and charges electronics. Configure its interior space over 70 different ways. Lockable rear under-seat storage includes a 12-volt powerpoint and a removable partition. To run your heavy-duty accessories, opt for the fully integrated upfitter switches. There's even a rapid-heat supplemental cab heater available to help raise the cabin temperature.

Hockey Vikings reach finals against NAIT By Murray Green

It has taken the Augustana Vikings 36 years, but they are back in the championship final. The hockey Vikings last played in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference finals in 1976. They were not even called Augustana at that time. "I think it is gratifying to beat a tough team like SAIT. I thought our guys persevered and were very focused on getting the job done," said coach Blaine Gusdal. "Our guys were focused on checking their emotions." This season the squad has been on a crusade to return to the promised land of a championship opportunity. Captain Torrie Dyck made it possible when he scored the overtime winner to give the Vikings a 3-1 series victory over the SAIT Trojans on March 3. "The goal was huge for us, but I think it was only a matter of time because we were dominating the play," said Daniel Hope of the Vikings. "The feeling on the bench, that I felt anyway, was that of confidence and we knew it was going to happen. When it went in, it was a feeling that I can't describe. Beating SAIT, a team that has been in the final for eight consecutive years, and in their own rink was a pretty special feeling." For the first time since the spring of 2004, the SAIT Tro-

jans will not be involved in the championship final. This season will mark the first in 36 that the Vikings will be sporting gold or silver medals around their necks. Dyck netted an unassisted goal at 5:40 of overtime that lifted the visiting Vikings to a 2-1 victory to claim the bestof-five semifinal series. In the other semifinal, NAIT knocked off the first place Mount Royal Cougars in five games. The question of the series is how did Augustana's penalty killing unit out score SAIT's power play unit? "That's an easy question to answer – Torrie Dyck and Scott Aucion," fired back Daniel. "The two of them scored all of the shorthanded goals for us. We put a lot of emphasis on the penalty kill and it paid off. We take pride in eliminating the other team's chances. Specialty teams are all about outworking the other team and we did that." Coach Blaine added, "When our penalty killers can out score the power play unit of the second most offensive team in the league, that is a testament to how hard our guys worked. It was a complete package. All of the players contributed." It was only fitting that the winning goal was a shorthanded marker by Dyck. It came after the Trojans had been handed a

golden chance to win the game on an Augustana bench minor at 4:31 of overtime. During a penalty killing situation, Dyck rocketed down the left wing and chased down a clearing shot that had careened off the end boards, and surprised Trojans goalie Andy Williams with a hard shot through the pads.

Trojans forward Matt Stefanishion of Daysland forced the game into overtime, beating Augustana’s Joel Danyluk with a penalty shot at 11:20 of the third. The penalty shot had been awarded after a Vikings player closed his hand on the puck in the Augustana crease during a goal mouth scramble on a SAIT power play. "It was a questionable call, but hats off to the guys for gutting it out and getting the job done," said coach Blaine. "We were 100 per cent on killing penalties on Saturday." When the Vikings eliminated SAIT, they turned their focus on the Mount Royal/NAIT series. 'I was a little surprised at the outcome, but not com-

pletely," said Daniel. "NAIT has a lot of offensive upside. To see them come back after being down 2-0 in the series was surprising, but they have played us tough this year and it's going to be a really good series." Coach Blaine was thinking he could be facing the NAIT Ooks in the final. "On the bus ride home, when we found out that NAIT won to force a fifth game, I said that they were the team to beat," the coach added. "That is playoffs. Other teams have been up and down, while our team has been at an even keel all year. I think that is something we take into the finals." The end result didn't really matter, as long as Augustana reached the final. "We just have to go out and play our game. If we do that, we will find success. When we play our speed game, it doesn't matter who we play. We have had the best power play in the league for three years, so it's something we take pride in as well, and if other teams want to play chippy, we can make them pay," said Daniel. "Of the top four teams, we are the team that plays more of a run and gun style. We are responsible defensively, but the other teams have to take note of our offence. NAIT is a lot like Mount Royal, so preparing for

them is not a lot different. NAIT has to prepare differently for us. We are a deep team and they have to beat all of us to win." The Vikings have had good teams in the past, so 36 years of drought are hard to understand. "I'm just trying to wrap my head around that," said a confused Daniel. "I can't understand why it has been so long. None of us were born then. We want to play for all those who came through this organization who didn't reach the final, including coach (Blaine Gusdal)." Coach Blaine said it's no secret anymore. "It is a good feat for us to reach the finals, but we know that our goal right from the start of the year was to win this, so our job is not done yet. These guys have worked hard all year. They help with minor hockey, have regular classes to attend on top of how hard I push them. They are doing this for themselves and as an alumnus, I'm glad to be a part of this." Augustana and NAIT continue the series on March 22 in Camrose at 7:30 p.m. Game four, if necessary will be played at NAIT on Friday night. Should the series be pushed to the brink, game five will be back in Camrose on Saturday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena.

This shipment is all part of providing libraries – and their users – with the best technology available. “Parkland estimates the bulk order saved libraries over $79,000,” said Parkland’s Director Ron Sheppard. “It’s a testament to the power of a regional library system. By working together to achieve a common goal, we can better meet the needs of each community.” Parkland Regional Library is a cooperative network of 50 public and 36 school libraries serving over 200,000 residents in central Alberta. The 183 new computers for the bulk order were purchased with a combination of Parkland funding of $76,500 and Industry Canada’s Community Access Program (CAP) funding of $73,029.60. For over a decade, public libraries have been allotted an annual dollar amount through CAP funding for technology purchases. In 2011, local libraries chose to pool their local library funding so that Parkland could place a bulk computer order with Dell. Each library submitted their “wish list” to Parkland, and through the extra buying power of the region, each and every library’s wishes for computers have been met. Last year, Parkland also embarked on a new IT initiative to help keep public library computers up and running with the latest software. Parkland is now able to maintain, upgrade, and troubleshoot library technology remotely and automatically – everything from virus protection to printer setups, to safe and secure backup storage. This service is offered by Parkland to member libraries at no additional costs. And it gives local library staff more time to help patrons, order new materials, develop programs, and continue to provide the public with top-notch library service. Library users are definite winners. On a typical day, hundreds of people of all ages use Parkland library computers to e-mail, research, Installation extra. surf, complete homework assignments, create PowerPoint presentations, or work in Excel or Publisher.

Ottawa, my Alberta colleagues and I continue to work on policy that will help us achieve our economic growth potential. On February 16, 2012, our government introduced Bill C-31, the Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act. Bill C-31 will restore integrity to our asylum system by making Can-








ada’s refugee determination process faster and fairer, resulting in faster protection for legitimate refugees and faster removal for bogus claimants. The bill has three principal elements: First, it includes the provisions of our Anti-Human Smuggling Bill from the previous Parliament designed to com-





bat human smugglers from targeting Canada and treating our country like a doormat; second, it fixes Canada’s asylum system to ensure that we grant fast protection to bona fide refugees who need our assistance, but that we remove from our nation false asylum claimants who seek to abuse our generosity; and third,

The Alberta government is adding 30 new child intervention positions to strengthen support for frontline case workers and contribute to better outcomes for at-risk children, youth and families in Alberta. "Staff working in child intervention services have difficult and challenging jobs that directly








impact the lives of thousands of Albertans each and every day," said Dave Hancock, Minister of Human Services. "Ensuring frontline workers are supported in their work is crucial. This funding builds better teams to help Alberta children and families. Better teams build better





futures for Alberta's children and families in need." The additional 30 child intervention supervisors will use their experience and training to work with frontline workers in screening, assessment and case planning for children, youth and families receiving child intervention services. Frontline staff will

have increased opportunities for support from supervisors to review information when making decisions about services. Supervisors will also be able to attend more case conferences with service delivery partners to discuss complex files. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An important part of recruiting and retaining skilled front-

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fight against fraud crimes Continued from page 38

"Unless you know the person that is contacting you, be very careful and don't respond to them," said Const. Wilton. Skimming is popular in the United States and in Ontario. "We have had reports in Calgary now where someone goes to a bank machine at say 3 a.m. and puts in an overlay where your card goes into, to record your card number. Sometimes they install a camera to record the key strokes of your pin number. After a day or two, they come back and pick up their equipment and they have all of the card information of the transactions that occurred during that time period," said Const. Wilton. "When you are in a store, always watch your card being swiped and ensure the employee is not swiping it twice. Also, a lot of stores are now moving towards having a machine that is not wireless because people were taking them and exchanging them with a different machine and then walking away with all of the records that were on the store's machine." Investment fraud

Property fraud is not a big problem in the Camrose area, but it has happened. "A well-known lady fraudster was circulating photos of the big horse stables along Highway 21. She was telling people that a memorial was going to be built to pay respect to veterans. At the same time, she was doing this in the Edmonton area," continued Const. Wilton. "Always keep in mind one thing. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Identity theft

Camrose has had a rash of vehicle break-ins in the past. "The most important thing you can do is lock your vehicle. We reported a series of thefts in December where people went from vehicle to vehicle, finding the ones where the doors were unlocked and then taking items. Keep valuables such as money, cards, electronic equipment and personal information out of sight," added Const. Wilton. "Don't carry your Social Insurance Number or birth certificate with you. You don't need those every day. Sometimes fraudsters are just after personal information. They could take your garage door opener and now they have access to your garage or even your house if it is attached. Keep the garage door opener in your purse or coat pocket. Always keep in mind any documents that are in your vehicle could be used to grab your address, which could lead to further theft. Protect yourself in every way possible. It is never wrong to ask people why they need your information. We would like to be proactive rather than react to problems."

Minor ball conducts umpire clinic to prepare for season By Murray Green

Camrose Minor Ball will be hosting an umpires' clinic to refresh current officials on handling baseball games and to encourage new umpires to join the ranks this season. A clinic for level one and two Baseball Alberta umpires will be held on April 21 and 22 at the Community Centre Fieldhouse. "We had about 40 umpires come out last year and we would like to see more people out this spring," said John Lake, organizer of the event. "We have umpires coming from all around, not just Camrose." John would like to see more baseball fans take up umpiring. "We need more senior umpires in Camrose. With the number of teams we have, and the numbers are steady, we need to develop umpires that will stick around for a few years and help us out." You can never have too many umpires. "We would like to have some extra umpires, so if someone can't make it to a game, we have someone to call and help out," added John. "Some of the younger umpires can only come out on certain nights, or they play ball themselves." Some teams also hold tournaments throughout the spring and summer. "We need more umpires for tournaments and Baseball Alberta also holds ranking tournament games to decide which teams qualify for provincials. We have a lot of games in Camrose during the ball season," continued John. "We would also like to see more girls take up umpiring. Some communities have girls' teams and the women's world championships are coming to Edmonton, so they would like to see more ladies in umpiring." People take up umpiring for a variety of reasons. "You can make some money umpiring. I don't do it for the money, but some younger umpires do it to receive some extra spending money. If you like the game, played the game, then this is a good way to stay in the sport. It helps players because you learn how the umpires see the game. Ball players and coaches see it differently than an umpire. It is a great way to learn the rules. I believe all coaches should take the clinic to see the game like we view it." Baseball can be a complicated game. "Sometimes you have to think about a play because a situation might come around once in a few years. The good thing is that you can always learn something new. I think it is fun to always learn new situations that come up," added John. "Umpiring is a great way to learn the game. You also have the best seat in the house." To register for the umpire clinic call John Lake at 780-6790151.

Gladstone Achievers 4-H update By Brandi Bignell 4-H Club reporter

Our cooking project held an annual Valentine's dinner for our members and families on Feb. 12. It was a delightful meal that we had prepared and cooked. What a reward to enjoy with our family, with all the presentation of foods like appetizers, 4-H bruschetta and shrimp. The main course was roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, glazed dill carrots, minted pea salad and tossed salad. Dessert was strawberry surprise and lemon parfait. But of course, a huge thank you to our leader, Karen Pederson – for all the work in preparing for this project, as well as all the others. It has been an exciting year so far. We just completed our public speaking competition on Feb. 26. What a feeling of standing in front of fellow 4-H members, parents, judges, and other family members to speak about a topic of your choice. A huge thank you to all the volunteer judges, parents and families, and our sponsor, Altalink, for all their support and encouragement in making it a huge success for all members. Judges were Rob Rolf, Shauna Bonnar, and Raymond Zimmer for intermediate speeches and Sharon McFadyen, Marilyn Cryderman and Glenda Rott for junior and senior speeches. Congratulations to the following for placing first and second in each grouping: Sierra Martz, first place, senior; Madison Huseby, second place senior; Lauren Brager, first place intermediate; Brandi Bignell, second place intermediate; Lyndy Nauenburg, first place junior; Jenna Tennant, second place junior. We also just completed our volunteer activity on March 13. Our club volunteered to clean the Gladstone Community Hall as a thank you for letting us use the facility for our cooking project and general meetings. It is my pleasure to keep the community updated with all of our fun activities, so until next time.
