Schools still looking for solutions to enrolment problems By Dan Jensen

One year after the Battle River School Division board of trustees gave them a second chance at life, the schools at Rosalind, Lougheed and Strome are still struggling with attendance issues. Lougheed School has seen its student numbers dip to 47 students, down from 61 students in 2010-2011, while Strome School has seen its numbers dip to 59 students, down from 70 in 2010-2011. The only bright spot is in Rosalind, where the numbers have increased to 54 students, up from 52 students in 20102011. All three schools remain below BRSD's Critical Minimum Enrolment Guideline of 80

for a Kindergarten or Grades 1 to 9 school. Changes made

The schools have responded to the low numbers by consolidating classes, and by reducing the number of teaching and support staff, as well as administrative time and administrative support. Parents in the three communities have also banded together to provide assistance and support, as they promised the BRSD trustees they would. They have also been searching for options and alternatives aimed at increasing the viability of their school for the long term. In the most recent effort, the BRSD has partnered with the school councils in each of the three schools to offer a virtual

learning pilot project. School councils are purchasing laptops for students in Grades 4 to 6, while BRSD is providing training to the teaching staff on how to adapt their classroom planning to include an online component so that students can access materials and learning resources from around the globe. "Literally, they are learning to bring the world into their classrooms for the benefits of students," said a statement from BRSD. Trial period

BRSD superintendent of schools Dr. Larry Payne and the trustees feel the laptop project needs to be given a valid trial period, and that the school communities need a true opportunity to develop more options for

County council gives first reading to area structure plan By Murray Green

Camrose County council gave first reading to the proposed zoning amendment bylaw at its March 13 meeting. A motion was passed to start the process of Bylaw 1224 to redistrict Pt. NW 5-50-20-W4 from A agricultural to CR-2 – large lot country residential district. An applicant submitted an area structure plan and requested that the county rezone 147 acres of land to develop 23 residential lots on the quarter. "The proposal will allow the developer to accommodate the maximum number of lots permitted under our land use regulations, which is 24 lots unless serviced by water and sewer. The applicant does not plan on serving the subdivision with water or sewer, each lot will be responsible for its own systems," said county planner Anjah Howard. "This application was originally brought to council in 2008, but was tabled after second reading to allow for the completion of the Miquelon Area Structure Plan. The process must start from the beginning though, because council only has two years to finalize a bylaw and the time period has expired." Approving first reading will allow the planning department to circulate the proposed redistricting and area structure plan to the affected parties. "Landowners are encouraged to keep natural vegetation on land next to rivers and streams. In order to provide an economic incentive, council may, if requested, rezone such land for recreational or residential uses," said Anjah in her report to council. There is a strong demand for rural residential parcels and council is willing to meet this demand provided that it does not damage agriculture or the environment, or impede the logical and economic growth of urban areas. "The demand for rural residential parcels will be met from two sources: multi-lot subdivisions, and the subdivision of

yard sites out of farm quarters. In order to reduce conflicts with agriculture, council believes it is better to concentrate most multilot subdivisions in a few welldefined areas, leaving the rest of the county primarily agricultural." Before a new area is opened up for multi-lot residential use, council must be satisfied that loss of farm land, the effect on nearby agricultural operations, and conflicts with resource extraction are all within acceptable limits. Development must be selfsupporting financially, requiring no subsidy from the taxpayers for the capital cost of roads or other municipal services. Where a quarter section is likely to be subdivided into more than four residential parcels, the landowner will be required to prepare an outline plan for the property, showing the general scheme of development, roads and drainage, lot sizes, how water and sewer will be provided to the lots, and how the development will relate to surrounding lands. This outline plan must be accepted by council before any of the land is rezoned for residential use. In order to maintain a rural look, no more than 24 lots will normally be allowed on a quarter section, unless the subdivision is to be served by a piped water system, in which case a maximum of 40 lots may be allowed. If a quarter section being subdivided contains some areas of better quality soil, those areas must normally be left as a single large parcel and the residential lots concentrated on the poorer soil. Structure plan

Natural drainage and wetlands should not be diverted, modified, or filled unless under unnecessary hardship or practical difficulties, as determined by the county and approved by provincial authorities. Removal of wetlands should be avoided where possible. If unavoidable, the provincial policy for wetland compensation will be utilized. Existing tree stands should be retained unless they are determined to be unhealthy and beyond rehabilitation by a qualified professional. Continued to page 18

the future. How much longer they might have to do that, however, is still unknown. "I did not bring forward any recommendations regarding school closure for the 2011-2012 school year," said Dr. Payne, "but we have made it clear that we cannot commit to more than one school year. We can't predict what will happen for the 20122013 school year." While the Lougheed, Strome and Rosalind Schools are the ones that are in the spotlight, the problem with declining enrolment is one that is being felt across the division. As the rural populations change, so does the school population. "In the coming school year we are predicting that about 250 more students will finish

Grade 12 than will start Grade 1," said BRSD board of trustees chair Cheryl Smith. "There are some specific pockets of growth, but generally, all areas of the division are experiencing this downward trend." The total student population has decreased by about 1500 over the last fifteen years, leading Smith and the trustees to accept the fact that the status quo is just not good enough. "Our funding is based on the number of students we have," said Smith. "We have to adapt and change with the realities of our time to ensure that we continue to provide the highest quality educational service to our students while living within our financial means."

Special birthday

Mayor Marshall Chalmers presents a certificate to Margaret Rolston in honour of her 100th birthday. By Dan Jensen

Margaret Rolston celebrated her 100th birthday in the company of family members, relatives and friends at Deer Meadows Sunday (March 25). Rolston replies to questions about the secret of her longevity with a simple shrug. "I guess the key is to be satisfied with what you have and be happy where you are, and I am happy," she said. Rolston has been a resident of Deer Meadows since the spring of 2003. Her main interests include reading, playing cards, and listening to stories about her six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. "She still walks over to visit with me," said her daughter, Carol Pederson. Rolston is proud of the fact that she doesn't require any medications. Rolston was born on March 25, 1912, to Mary and Carl

Aherbeck in the Vang district, near Wetaskiwin. "She was the middle child of three girls," said Pederson. Rolston's mother died in 1916, leaving her and her sisters to be raised by their father and uncle. Rolston took Grades 1 to 4 at Navarino, Wisconsin, Grades 5 to 8 at Vang Country School, and Grades 9 to 11 at Wetaskiwin. Striking out on her own, Rolston attended the Normal School, in Camrose, where she received training on how to be a teacher. In 1920 Rolston taught 29 students in Grades 1 to 8 at Sparling School at Millet, for $750 a year. She next taught at Crooked Lake for two years. Times were so tough then that a lot of the schools were closed. One of her first teaching positions in Camrose was at the United Church, where she was given a group of 25 boys and

nine girls who were considered "problem students." "They were not bad kids," she recalled. "We got along just fine." Altogether, Roston taught for 33 and one half years, seventeen of which were in Camrose. Rolston married Clarence Kjorlien, a welder and machinist, on May 16, 1935. The couple had two children, Monrad, in 1937, and Carol, in 1942. Sadly, Monrad passed away this past February. On May 25, 1975, Rolston married Ray Rolston, who already had one son, three daughters and many grandchildren and grandchildren. The couple spent a fair amount of time travelling, visiting much of the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as England, Wales, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Italy, and Israel. They also spent time cruising the Caribbean and Pacific oceans.

We are the champions! Pro Sports Photography The Augustana Vikings captured the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference trophy and championship banner by beating the NAIT Ooks 3-2 in double overtime on March 24 in Edmonton. The Vikings won the final series in four games and celebrated the first title in nearly 40 years.


Hockey Vikings cap a stellar season By Murray Green The Augustana Vikings needed a second overtime period to defeat the NAIT Ooks 3-2 and capture the provincial hockey title on March 24. For the first time in almost 40 years, the Vikings earned the gold medals in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. MVP goalie Joel Danyluk made the difference in the playoffs as Augustana won the final series in four games. The NAIT Ooks had some fight still left in them. The Augustana Vikings found that out when the visitors beat them 2-1 in overtime in front of about 1,400 fans in the EnCana Arena on March 23. NAIT scored early, but the Vikings carried the play until they notched the equalizer in the second period. A goal-mouth scramble worked in favour of the Ooks as they garnered the winner late in the first overtime frame. "We could have created a little more offence and drove to the net better," said Vikings forward Adam Johnson. "That is the way it goes and that's why the playoffs are not a best of one. We just have to be ready to go tomorrow." The Vikings came out pumped for the last game. It was tough to see in excess of 1,400 fans missing a chance to celebrate. "We are not used to playing in front of that many people and we had a bit of nerves and you could see that at the start of the game," said Adam. "But, it's great to have that kind of support from the city." In fact, the Vikings seemed to have the majority of fans in the last contest in Edmonton than the Ooks. After losing two straight, NAIT changed goalies and the switch seemed to work. "They play a similar style. They are not big goalies, so we know that we have to go up high. They play the angles really well," said Adam. "Shannon has played well, we just have to get more traffic in front of her." Adam said the team has to play a more physical game to win the championship. "This was a wake-up for us. We can't just show up, we need to work harder for it." The Vikings defeated NAIT 3-1 in front of a huge hometown crowd in the opening game of the final series on March 16. Matthew Foster garnered two straight goals in the middle frame to lift the Augustana offence. Dane Bonish put the game out of reach for the Vikings with his goal in the final minutes of the last period. In Edmonton, Kenny Bradley, Matthew Foster, Adam Johnson, Torrie Dyck and Scott Aucoin all scored to give the Vikings a 5-2 victory. In all four games, goalie Joel Danyluk made numerous saves to pick up the wins in the Augustana net.

Spring is in the air. There is a looming Alberta election coming upon us Albertans. Alberta is now in the red. Ralph Klein when he was in power paid off our debt. We had all of our bills paid. But then a new premier came and put Alberta back in the red. What we need is a party who will put us back in the black again. If there is a party who has a budget in mind that will not raise taxes. If there is a party who would have the guts to cut certain areas like the runaway MLA salaries that are out of touch with reality. The Wildrose Alliance Party has shown us this sort of budget that would get Alberta back on track again. On election day, the voter will have to decide to vote in: a) a very out of touch party who has a very bad spending problem or b) a new true Conservative party who is listening to Alber-

tans and who has a budget that will put Alberta in the black. They have found money to hire 1,400 plus teachers, 1,000 health care workers, 1,000 senior support aides, they can keep the $1,400 raise for AISH as well as 300 more policemen – all without raising taxes. On election day, Albertans will answer that question. I sure hope that for the sake of all of us Albertans that the majority will make the right choice. Lorne Vanderwoude Camrose Absent government Seven representatives from CNIP (Concerned Neighbours in Partnership), a group of about 30 landowners from the BattleRiver/ Wainwright Constituency, were introduced by Rachel Notley in the Legislature on March 15th. The intent of CNIP's visit to the Legislature was to have the NDP table the CNIP Anti-Bill Petition in the House. Some topics addressed during Question Period that day included seniors' long-term care, care standards, and serious incidents (crises); the multi-million dollar Alberta First Nations' upgrader project, that the Government vetoed because, according to Minister Morton, the "risk to the taxpayers was too high"; municipal taxation; the $3 billion "critical" DC transmission lines (which Morton claimed are absolutely necessary); MLA pay for non-existing Committee meetings; the number of and criteria used for pending school closures (not forthcoming); ... and bully-

ing – which Education Minister Lukaszuk claimed is "never acceptable." This exchange on "bullying" was ironic because amid much noise/disturbance (called "interjection" in the Alberta Hansard records), Mr. Kowalski, the Speaker of the House, pointed out "Some people might include in the definition of bullying those who yell at others." Kowalski's comment, however, did not reduce or deter the noisy "interjections." How embarrassing! There were grade six students, two children connected to the Summerside Playground, and several foreign Rotary exchange students, as Assembly guests in the Public Gallery, observing all this. To add to this embarrassment, when not actively engaged in the heckling, yelling, and "bullying," numerous MLAs (ours included) showed (obvious) disrespect by being fixated on their i-pads, and/or texting on their cell phones. The Premier was absent. House Members arrived late and left early. Despite being scheduled for three-hour sessions each Thursday afternoon, numerous Members had already left the House by 2:43 p.m. (a mere one hour and 13 minutes after the Session began). During a first reading of two new Bills (Bill 205, Scrap Metal Dealers and Recyclers Identification Act. Bill 209, Homeowner Protection Act), and the "tabling" of the CNIP AntiBill Petition, the majority of the seats were empty. The few voicevotes (i.e. "ayes") for the Bills were pretty feeble. Continued on page 18

Never a Time for Apathy Last Tuesday, March 20, the Edmonton Journal appeared with a brand new look: newly-designed masthead in color, new type style, new six-column format, and numerous other changes throughout the paper, all intended to be forward-looking and to better serve its readers. While I noted the changes with approval, it was the repeat of a 1938 story (section D5) that really caught my attention. It caught my attention because it was a reminder that, even in our advanced, democratic country, we must be ever watchful lest people we trust attempt to yank our freedoms from us. In 1938, the Edmonton Journal became the first nonAmerican newspaper to win the Pulitzer Prize which is the highest award in North American journalism. It ranks with the New York Times coverage of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The Journal won it for leading a coalition of Alberta newspapers to oppose in court Social Credit premier William Aberhart’s press gag act, a censorship act that would have required newspapers to print government statements, reveal sources and would have banned stories from non-government-approved sources. ‘Bible Bill’ Aberhart’s government passed the Accurate News and Information Act in 1937 but, as rarely happens, Lieutenant Governor John C. Bowen refused to give it Royal Assent. The act was subsequently struck down by the Supreme Court of Canada and by the British Privy Council. John Imrie, Journal managing director, said when accepting the Pulitzer Prize at Columbia University School of Journalism, that freedom of the press is “the very essence of democracy ... Government control of the press is an indispensable instrument of dictatorship.” Imrie also pledged “... for democracy we will continue with unabated vigour, without equivocation or surrender and notwithstanding whatever sacrifice may be involved, the struggle to preserve inviolate in Alberta those fundamentals of liberty and freedom that are common and glorious heritage of your people and mine.” It was a momentous story that needs to be remembered for two reasons: the Pulitzer Prize is very prestigious and to this day is proudly displayed; but much more important, especially because someone was watchful and had the courage to actually take the action that earned the prize. May this flashback in history be an incentive to all citizens to continually pay attention to what our legislators and parliamentarians are doing. Aberhart was a powerfully persuasive orator; he gave hope to a populace depressed by the Great Depression of the 1930s and they made him premier of the province. But when he was angered by a critical free press he acted rashly. Kudos to the Journal, and other supportive newspapers, for the courage to stand up to a government's bullying. I retell this story because I believe our governments, even today in our democratic nation, at times come alarmingly close to muzzling freedoms. There is never a time for apathy. It is always time for media to responsibly deliver fair and accurate news and to defend the right to do so – in whatever color of ink or type style; it is always time for citizens to be watchful lest their precious freedoms be lost.

Think you can get enough vitamin D staying out of the sun and binging on supplements? Think again.

As people get older, connective tissues in the skin that promote strength and elasticity have a tendency to break down. Furthermore, the blood vessels of the dermis become more fragile, which can lead to bruising. Also, sebaceous glands may produce less oil, making the skin less able to moisturize itself. As a result, the skin thins out. It is important to note these changes so that people can be proactive in their approach to skin care as they age. • Address dryness. If the skin is itchy or uncomfortable, or if you find that there is extra flaking, lack of moisture could be a problem. Moisturizer should be the staple of a skin care regimen. Experiment with moisturizers until you find the one that is the best match for your skin. • Revise makeup shades and products as needed. As skin care needs change, it pays to go with the flow in terms of the products you use and buy. What may have been flattering a few years ago may not be flattering now. Think about neutral or rosy shades in the types of foundations and blushers you select. Avoid anything that is too dramatic or drastic.

A study in Canada found 48 percent of women were vitamin D deficient despite taking supplements. It’s called the sunshine vitamin for a reason. Get your vitamin D at…

Continued from page 8

Why can approximately two dozen MLAs (out of the 83 that are supposed to be sitting in the House) make decisions that bind all Albertans? How can 28 out of 83 be a quorum? It is hard to make a case for underpaid, overworked MLAs, when attendance at scheduled Legislature sessions is this low, and voting on vital budgetary Bills right before a provincial election is this appallingly poor. Albertans need to question their MLAs, and their pay (roughly $150,000/yr), their payouts (up to $1.3 million), and their $1,000/month for non-existent committee meetings. We must take the initiative to make our voices heard. Marion Leithead Bawlf Bad legislation

I was proud to able to attend the Legislature session with some people from CNIP (Concerned Neighbors in Partnership) when the petition they had circulated in East Central Alberta, asking to have the land use bills repealed was tabled in the Legislature, not by our own MLA for Battle River Wainwright, but by the Alberta NDP. Apart from the appalling behavior of some of the members (a topic for a whole other letter) my attention was caught by the statement made by Ray Prins, MLA for Lacombe-Ponoka. He was addressing Bill 6, the Property Rights Advocate Act, which came about from the report of The Property Rights Task Force of earlier this year that did not come to Battle River Wainwright, Prins said, “Most importantly, they (Albertans) asked for an advocate to help them

navigate through the process. I'm very pleased to say that we have responded to Albertans with Bill 6, the Property Rights Advocate Act.” Well I have been going to land owner meetings and information sessions on the land use bills 46, 19, 36, 50 since 2007 and I have never once heard anyone say “we need a property rights advocate”. Have you? I’m not sure how many meetings and information sessions Prins has attended, several I think, including some of the same ones I was at. And I know many of you have attended many more meetings than I. Did you hear anyone ask for a property rights advocate? And now I notice in our local weekly papers, almost fullpage ads telling me that I asked for a property rights advocate. It has a cute little logo that says “we heard u” and to add insult to injury, you and I are paying for the ad! This is nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of this government and a typical PC way to fix a problem – add another layer. In my mind, this is another useless piece of legislation that would essentially create a new bureaucracy between us and our government. Could it also create a patronage job for one or more of the soon-to-be retired PC cabinet ministers, maybe for Mel Knight? We don’t need a property rights advocate. We NEED all this bad legislation to be repealed, to get back to the basics, and then involve people openly and honestly in creating land use legislation that will benefit everyone, not just ATCO and Altalink Midge Lambert Alberta Party Candidate Battle River Wainwright

Baumgardner receives top Sisters of Providence award

Camrose & District Pre-School Registration for 3 & 4 Year Olds

By Murray Green

Kristin Baumgardner, of the Covenant Health St. Mary's Camrose Hospital rehabilitation department, was honoured with the Sisters of Providence award at the Milestones Long Service Celebrations Banquet on March 14. "Each award presented here tonight shows the commitment to increased quality care that so many of our staff demonstrate each day they come to work," said executive director Cherylyn Antymniuk. "Each person recognized has gone the extra mile in making such a difference in serving the patients." Six staff members were nominated for the highest honour, the Sisters of Providence award. "Although one person will win the award, I wish to thank everyone who was nominated and those that nominated them, for the dedicated vision of values of Covenant Health St. Mary's Hospital," said Cherylyn. Besides Kristin, Celine Tritten, heart and stroke clinic; Karen Burton, assistant head nurse; Marlene Bartoshyk, administration; Kathy Henderson, environmental services; and Linda Dobson, patient information services, were also nominated and thanked for their outstanding work. "Kristin shows a deep respect for all people, recognizing the gifts of each person. She has been instrumental with her involvement of the green team, She builds a legacy of the Sisters of Providence and leads with service through dedication and recognition of deserving staff members through random acts of kindness," said Sister Bernadine Bokenfohr. "Kristin also assures co-workers, patients, family, students and volunteers are welcome by taking time to address concerns, by lending a hand and becoming involved in events within and outside of work, while encouraging participation by staff." Receiving 30 year milestone long service awards were admitting switchboard clerk Laurel Lehman, director of health information management Linda Dobson, pre-assessment surgical clinic registered nurse Marian Powell and unit five LPN retiree Gary Fairbairn. Also hitting the 30-year milestone were Mary Pederson and Marlene Bartoshyk. Sister Bernadine Bokenfohr of the founding Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul congregation, was honoured for her 32 years of service. Julie Smith, recovery room; Adele Schwabe, unit five nurse; Darlene Griffin, emergency; and Rhonda Erickson, unit two were honoured for 25 years of service. Staff members Mary Sparks, Karen Cunningham, Cindy Parker, Dr. Greg Ninian and Patricia Elaschuk and volunteers Rita Gould, Pat Lyseng and Alice Hill all reached the milestone of 20 years of dedication to the hospital.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER March 27, 2012

CCHS moves up rankings By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans senior girls' basketball team entered provincials as the eighth ranked team in Alberta. The club that hosted provincials was successful in improving its standing in Camrose on March 15 to 17. CCHS met Winston Churchill from Calgary in the opening game and pulled out a 72-53 victory to stay on the A-side of the tournament. However, the team faced the powerful Monsignor McCoy Colts from Medicine Hat in its second match and was handed a 78-54 loss. "They were the number one team coming in. We were a little bit behind them and then went up 51-50 going in to the fourth quarter," said Hallee Peter of CCHS. "We were the only team to ever be up on them this year," added teammate Bradi Lorenz. The Colts went on to receive the silver medals in the tournament. The Trojans slipped down to the B-pool and found themselves matched against a familiar foe in the Wetaskiwin Sabres. CCHS declawed the Sabres in a close 56-53 game. "We won on a threepoint buzzer beater," said Hallee. "It was a really close game. It went back and forth the whole game. They were pretty upset when we beat them." Teammate Kristen Lyster added "It felt really good to beat Wetaskiwin. We beat them early in the year and then they won the next two and then we won the last two." Camrose lost 60-46 to the W.R. Myers Rebels in the battle for fifth place. CCHS had to settle for sixth spot, but ended up two notches ahead of where it was ranked prior to provincials. "We could have played better in our final game, but we were happy to move up to sixth place," said Hallee. "We were really tired and had an emotional day the previous day before because we played two hard games, especially against Wetaskiwin because they are our rivals." Bradi hopes to use this experience at provincials towards next season. "Just knowing how much better we played at provincials is valuable. All season we hadn't hit our highest point yet and then we did it (to reach the B-side final). Just knowing we have the chance to keep improving in every game means a lot. The whole experience of being in provincials is amazing and something to take with us next year," said Bradi. "We have a lot of strong girls coming up, so we should be pretty good. We have a good group coming back, so we can improve and hopefully make provincials again next year."

Keep it clean and safe Spring is here – the season for shedding winter coats, venturing outdoors … and cleaning. Alberta Health Services reminds residents to use caution when ‘spring cleaning’ to prevent illness and injury. “The main issue is animal droppings – especially mouse droppings where mice have nested during the winter,” says Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Medical Officer of Health (Central Zone), Alberta Health Services. “Cleaning products are also an issue.” She offers some tips to reduce potential health hazards. * Wear disposable or water-resistant gloves when removing dog or other animal droppings that were covered by snow. Put the droppings in a sealed plastic bag and place in the garbage. * Wash your hands after handling animal droppings, compost or fresh manure, or working in the yard. * If you are pregnant, avoid digging in soil to prevent coming into contact with cat droppings (risk of toxoplasma). Note: Pregnant women should also avoid changing cat litter. * Garden chemicals such as pesticides can be dangerous. If you have young children or pets, find safe, non-toxic ways to control insects and weeds. Read the label carefully and follow the directions. If you see mouse droppings, nests, or dead mice (especially in spaces such as garden sheds or recreational vehicles that have been closed up for the winter), follow these steps: Open doors and windows for ventilation and keep out of the area for at least 30 minutes. Wear rubber gloves. Thoroughly soak droppings, nests and dead mice with a bleach and water solution (one part bleach to nine parts water) or a household disinfectant. Let sit for five minutes.

Rent The Rug Doctor

p m Du k n u J r Ye

With an election looming in Alberta, voters may want to think twice about who will be paying for the promises made by the current government. Alberta’s NDP opposition leader Brian Mason said two applications for massive power exports to the United States expose why Albertans are paying out of pocket for massively overbuilt transmission lines. “This means Albertans may end up funding profitable power exports out of their own pockets, and end up paying California prices for power,” Mr. Mason said. The NDP has learned that both Direct Energy and Capital Power applied in January for electricity export permits to the United States. The applications indicate the companies want to be able to export a total of up to about 34,649 GWh per year for 10 years. That’s two-thirds of all the power currently consumed in Alberta. “We know that California is hungry for power. If Alberta becomes the source of that power, we’ll end up paying high California prices for years to come,” said Mr. Mason. “Alberta needs a regulated power system that provides an essential service. Massively overbuilt power lines should never be allowed, nor should consumers be subsidizing the massive profits of big power companies.” The Critical Transmission Review Committee (CTRC), chaired by former PC party vicepresident Brian Heidecker, has already given Premier Alison Redford the go-ahead to add the $16.6 billion construction cost of two lines to your energy bill. The cost will be shared by all electrical users for the next 30 years.

Local team wins whist challenge By Murray Green

The military whist team of, from left to right, Frank Snopek, Rosella Snopek, Leona Oberg and Kathleen Tennant were presented with the Alberta 55 plus Zone 4 Military Whist Challenge Cup in Big Valley on March 15 by Fern Borgel, Area 8 Director.

No experience necessary. Two rookies were quick learners in capturing the Alberta 55 plus Zone 4 Military Whist Challenge Cup in Big Valley on March 15. Veteran card players Leona Oberg from Bashaw and Kathleen Tennant from Bawlf joined beginners' luck whist players Frank and Rosella Snopek from Camrose. Since Frank and Rosella had never played military whist in their lives, the odds of defeating anyone was slim. They defied the odds against teams from Wetaskiwin, Lacombe, Mirror, Rimbey, Forestburg and Big Valley who tried really hard to take their flags. When all 30 games were completed Forestburg and the local team had 19 flags each to force a playoff. The rookies and veterans were not denied, winning handily.

A self-described futurist, Reed believes the only things for which oil should be used are plastics and a few lubrication products. "The sand in the oilsands is worth more than the oil because it is ceramic sand and ceramics is the new steel," he said. "It weighs about one fifth of what steel does yet it has the same strength." Reed said one of the things that is scaring the oil industry is a type of oil algae that can be grown. "They squeeze the algae for the oil and use the chlorophyll for fertilizer," he said. "It's not something they have to pull out of the ground." Reed accepted the invitation to run for the Social Credit Party in the Wetaskiwin-Camrose constituency this past January, and has been busy since then helping to build a formal constituency association. The campaign will

Ray Reed

be his first since 1975 when the Social Credit Party, of which he was a part at the time, was wiped off the political map by the Progressive Conservatives. "They had the full complement of candidates and I finished with the sixth most votes (by a Socred)," said Reed. "I was told that if the Party had been returned to power that I would have been made the agriculture minister because of my background in agriculture." Reed said the Social Credit

Party's slant on the issues is one that fits his philosophy. "I like to fight against the issues that divide us and the belief some have that one person has any more worth than someone else." Reed and Social Credit Party leader Len Stowronski will be speaking as part of a Roast the Past Toast the Future event at the Camrose Golf Course April 14 and 15. He is currently selling tickets to anyone who is interested in what he says should be two separate evenings filled with fun, food and information. "We're trying to get people interested in participating in politics, rather than just watching and saying they can't do anything so why bother," he said. "The way I see things is that you can do things, you just have to take part in the process." The Alberta Social Credit Party met in Innisfail March 3, where it passed several new policies to address current concerns of Albertans, including one that would require strict regulation of taser usage by Alberta law enforcement agencies. Members also voiced concern that the provincial government was usurping parents' rights to educate their children.

A recent injection of funds will help to address violence in our community. A grant of $54,627 from Alberta Culture and Community Spirit, Community Initiatives Program helps to ensure group programs like Adult Anger Management, Changing Ways for Men, Choices for Women, and Parenting Without Violence will continue to be available for people who want to get beyond the chaos. The two-year grant will be used to assist with wages and salaries associated with groups, individual counselling for adults and children, as well as administration of the Family Violence Action Society. “These funds will help us reach more people who need our services,” says Sheralyn Dobos, program director of the Family Violence Action Society (FVAS).

“We could not have accessed this grant without tremendous support of individuals and businesses in our community. Matching funds in the form of donations and other grants are a requirement of this particular funding." In addition to adult group programs, FVAS also runs preventive programs for junior high youth. In partnership with Charlie Killam School, the “Tap Out Club” supports students in learning to understand and respect themselves and others. The group challenges youth to set goals and understand how their actions and choices impact their future. Short-term counselling is provided by FVAS for individuals and couples who want to address anger or abuse in their lives. Counselling is usually done to help prepare individuals for

group programs or to support them while they wait for the next group program to begin. “Adult Anger Management” is an 8-week class for men and women who want to learn to control their anger or rage that may spill over in work, social settings, or any situations other than domestic relationships. Registration is now being accepted for people wanting to begin Anger Management class in April 2012. The group is offered twice each year. No registration fees are charged for any FVAS programs. Family Violence Action Society is a registered charity that strives to reduce the occurrence and impact of violence in our community by working in collaboration and partnership with others. Individuals can register for programs or services by calling (780)672-0141.

Battle River Shock opens new football season Submitted by Monica Zombori

Another season is just around the corner. Typically spring training refers to baseball but in Central Alberta, spring ball refers to midget football. The sounds of shoulder pads, helmets and chest protectors hitting, a long bomb, a catch ripped out of the air and a tackle by the other team or a run for a touchdown – this game requires passion and these guys have it. Playing out of Central Alber-

ta, the Shock are starting their fourth season and played their pre-season opener in Spruce Grove against the Calgary Broncos on March 24. The team, consisting of players from Viking, Sherwood Park, Stettler, Red Deer, Wetaskiwin, Lacombe and Camrose, play Tier 1 in the Capital District Minor Football League in Edmonton. The final selections were made two weeks ago; these players have been traveling for tryouts and prac-

tices over the past six weeks. A total of 44 Grades 9 to 11 players make up the roster this year and their ability looks promising. We have quality players from all communities including Parker Cassidy, Riley Anderson, Nicholas Baharally, Theren Churchill, Morgan Loshney and Ty Page (all from Stettler) and Brady Podloski of Red Deer who are all-star players for 2011 in the Central Alberta High School Football League. Their

contributions are expected to strengthen the team. Further, the Stettler players are fresh from their incredible provincial Tier 3 championship and will bolster the ranks with their momentum. Two-time Football Alberta Coach of the Year Don Loov and Edmonton Huskies alumni, coach Maren Stevens, return to the helm and they know what it takes to win. The goal this year is the championship game, but

they will take it one game at a time. In addition to the eight experienced assistant coaches, the Shock has a well-versed training staff led by Char Hutchinson, with Shela Fowler and Dr. Hewko and three junior trainers keeping the players healthy. CDMFA league play starts with a jamboree opening on March 31 in Spruce Grove. Visit www.camroseminorfootball. com for more information.

Shoot out determines atom championship By Murray Green

The Camrose Dynamites defeated the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers in a shoot out to claim the atom championship trophy in hockey action at the EnCana Arena on March 17. When the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers won the first game of the best of two series 4-3, Camrose tried a bit of Irish luck to turn the game in its favour. On St. Patrick's Day, the Camrose squad, who usually wears red uniforms, switched to green in an attempt to gain the momentum. It worked like a charm for most of the game as Camrose played with high energy to build up a 4-2 lead. However, Fort Saskatchewan scored late in the game to force a tie in total goals for each club. The two teams had to resort to a shoot-out to decide the atom championship banner for the Alberta 16/60 league. Kenneth Andrews, Dorian Hatch, Austin Andres and Tyler Barkman scored in regulation time for Camrose. Both teams worked very hard to deliver an action packed, high intensity game to send it to a shoot-out to determine the winner. Captain Tyler Barkman and defenceman Colton Ellingson garnered the tallies in the shoot-out. "We the parents, managers, and coaches want to thank these young boys for their hard work, sportsmanship and, most importantly, for the love of the game," said manager Jody McDougall. "It was a great day for hockey."

Members of the Camrose Dynamites are Josh Franz, Colton Ellingson, Joshua Moores, Tyler Barkman, Dorion Hatch, Austin Andres, Kenneth Andrews, Carter Simpson, Brandon Zunti, Mateo Jonson, Kolton Schiestel, Ty Hillyer, Zach Pearson, Skyler Payette and Carter Kovac. The coaches were Jobey Schiestel, Devon Hillyer, Dallas Barkman, Bob Jonson and Aaron Kovac. Alana Moores, top right, cheers the team on.

Alberta boosts efforts to showcase culture Albertans will have the opportunity for broader exposure to the many facets of Alberta’s culture during this year’s annual celebration in September. Based on input from the recent Culture Forum 2012, Alberta Arts Days has been renamed Alberta Culture Days. Participants felt this change would help encourage broader participation and support the efforts of Alberta’s arts, heritage, nonprofit/ voluntary, multicultural and

youth serving organizations. It also reflects the importance of increased collaboration and partnerships across the relevant sectors. “Hosting an Alberta Culture Days event is a wonderful opportunity to foster community relationships and showcase local talent,” said Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Culture and Community Services. “It’s also a great way for organizations to boost the impact and reach of existing efforts to promote the value and availability

of cultural programming in our province. Culture connects our people, our communities and our province.” Alberta Culture Days runs from September 28 to 30 in conjunction with the national Culture Days movement. To support the province-wide celebration, the Government of Alberta is again making funding available to those wishing to host cultural events and be designated official Celebration Sites. All nonprofit/voluntary, multicultural, heritage and

arts organizations are encouraged to apply. Two levels of funding are available: up to $20,000 to be designated a Feature Celebration Site; and up to $5,000 to be designated a Host Celebration Site. Consideration will be given to those who partner with others in their community to present cultural programming. Interested applicants should visit The application deadline is May 8. “Alberta Arts Days has

always been about celebrating our heritage, cultural diversity and provincial pride,” said Klimchuk. “The change in name to Alberta Culture Days is actually in keeping with what communities are already doing. Last year, thousands of Albertans enjoyed 1,046 events and activities hosted by an array of organizations including schools, libraries, recreation centres, arts and multicultural groups, social serving organizations; and many, many others.”

A hot romance with Just One Spark

George & Glenys Von Platen

By Murray Green

Directions: From WETASKIWIN, AB, go 10 km (6.2 miles) East on Hwy 13 to RR 232, then go 1 km (0.62 miles) North.

Sometimes all it takes is one little spark to get a romance heated up in a hurry. Just One Spark is a story of two star-crossed lovers. Sparky is a firefighter (Camrose resident David Arial) and Green is a chain-smoking librarian (Augustana graduate Andraea Sartison) and they are drowning in loneliness and longing for the flame of romance to strike. Both Sparky and Green fantasize about love when they call in to their favourite radio station. Sparks fly and hearts unite when he rescues her from a fire at the library. When her desperation to find him again turns to arson they aren’t so lucky in escaping the blaze this time, and they wind up in critical condition. What follows is a love story taking place in their comatose fantasies. Everything is romantic, but as in dreams—quirky, spontaneous and unexplainable. The escapade unfolds through mime, physical comedy and a combination of video and live performance. It is tuned to perfection by a radio DJ who sets the scene and underscores the story. "When I graduated in 2008, I had to figure out what to do and thought about theatre. I wrote a play in 24 hours for a play writing competition and it became Just One Spark," explained Andraea. "We rehearsed separately, and then came together three or four days before we opened." This play was a hit at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in 2009. "We ended up getting great reviews and the crowds grew every single night. Since then, David has been in school (University of Alberta, Augustana Campus) and I have been producing shows," said Andraea. The play has expanded with improvements, as well as some video to set the scene. "We are adding some film and video, which we have never done before. Now the play is completely underscored by music to give it a silent music feel to it." The play features two different scenes. "The first is a little blasé and that is where we use the film to help us, and the second is full of action. We are trying to oppose those two different worlds." Part of the film was shot at Covenant Health St. Mary's Camrose. "They were really good about it and handed us gowns and gave us a room," said Andraea. "One of the things we needed was a split screen to show both of us," explained David. "We had no idea how to do a split screen on I-movie 11. We did a lot of learning, googled and some young kids told us how to do it." Since the show was a success in Winnipeg, the actors decided it was time to reveal it to a Camrose audience. "We thought, let's get it back to Camrose. All of my family and friends are from Camrose and it will be good to perform here," said David. "What we have learned in dramatic arts has come from Augustana. We hope students and the professors make the trek to the theatre."

2012 Chevrolet Cruze Car of the Year By Dan Jensen

Why drive just any car when you can drive the car of the year? The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC in Camrose has won many international awards, including 2011 Canadian Car of the Year honours from the Automobile Journalists' Association of Canada. "It is a compact car that takes the class to a whole other level," said McClellan Wheaton dealer principal Will McClellan. Sporty look The Cruze's Corvette-inspired interior isn't just stylish, it is highly functional. A good example is the versatility offered by the 60/40 split-folding rear seats that open up an expanded cargo passthrough to the trunk. "The cabin is clean and smart and very well executed," said Jeremy Cato, from The Globe and Mail. Also integral to the interior are the use of premium materials and a world-class quality standard that is evident in the tight fit between trim panels. The comfort is of an equally high calibre with standard six-way adjustable front bucket seats and a tilt and telescoping steering column. The Cruze LTZ Turbo includes such upscale features as heated leather-appointed front bucket seats with a power six-way driver's seat adjuster, as well as automatic climate control. The electronics are also advanced, with a standard OnStar system that features a wealth of safety, security and convenience features – with access through OnStar RemoteLink to your iPhone or select Android devices. You can opt for available Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and an available USB port that you can operate with steering-wheel mounted audio controls. "With Cruze you're not only comfortable and connected, you're also enthused," said McClellan. "With Cruze it is world class all the way." Joy of driving The 2012 Cruze supports your joy of driving while inviting you to consider your impact on the environment. The 138 horsepower 1.4 litre ECOTEC turbo four-cylinder engine generates a sophisticated brand of fuel-efficient performance in Cruze LT Turbo, LTZ Turbo and Eco models. In fact, Cruze Eco, with its 4.6 litre per 100 km highway fuel consumption rating beats every other car in its class. "The Cruze Eco features a deceleration fuel cut-off system that automatically shuts off fuel when you are decelerating and then lets the fuel flow again once you accelerate, improving fuel efficiency," said McClellan. Eco also has enhanced aerodynamics, highlighted by an automatic air shutter system behind the front grille – the first in its class. It opens at low speeds to cool the engine and closes at highway speeds to enhance aerodynamics. Another contributing factor to Cruze Eco's winning fuel efficiency is the lightweight 17-inch forged polished alloy wheels that save both weight

and fuel. They are paired with low rolling resistance tires that again increase fuel efficiency. Cruze LS has its own form of power, equipped with a fuel-efficient 136 horsepower 1.8 litre ECOTEC four-cylinder engine. Just as the engine raises your expectations for the class, so does the handling, thanks to MacPherson strut front and compound crank rear suspension. "Where the Cruze makes a statement is the manner in which it handles, as its European heritage shines through," said Graeme Fletcher, The National Post. "In fact, the driving feel is one of substance and control." Less to worry about Safety was front and centre in the Cruze development effort, as engineers incorporated a long list

of accident avoidance and occupant protection measures. A series of standard driver control features help keep you out of trouble. They include the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, traction control and four-wheel Pete anti-lock brakes. StabiliPastuck Trak continuously monitors steering angle, wheel speeds, brake pressure and lateral acceleration. If the system detects a lateral skid it intervenes by adjusting brake pressure and engine power to help return the vehicle to its increased driving line. As an electronic stability control system, it has been proven to reduce the risk of a fatal single-vehicle car crash by a remarkable 36 per cent. Occupant protection on Cruze is at a level you may expect from a luxury vehicle costing twice as much. There are ten standard airbags – the most in its class – which, together with the fortress-like body structure, helped Cruze earn a 2011 IIHS top safety pick and a five-star overall vehicle score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Further reassurance comes in the form of the standard OnStar system that includes Automatic Crash Response. Cruze surpassed 6,000,000 kilometres in worldwide testing. That's equivalent to almost 1,000 trips between Halifax and Vancouver, or close to 150 laps around the earth. Or more than seven times from the earth to the moon and back. In other words, lots of kilometres and lots of tweaking along the way.

Weighing SCAN the options HERE FOR MORE of oil change locations GREAT OFFERS

The debate may continue as to whether a car still needs its oil changed every 3,000 miles or if motorists can extend that figure to more than 5,000 miles. In addition to how frequently oil needs to be changed, drivers also must decide where to go for an oil change. Customers have different choices when it comes to oil changes. Some don't mind getting a little messy and choose to change their oil right at home. There are also lube stations that specialize strictly in oil changes. Then there is the option of having the oil changed at a dealership service station. As with any decision, it helps to weigh the pros and cons of each option before making a final decision. Routine service can be done anywhere and will not void your warranty. Regular warranty work only has to

be done by the dealer. Unless a dealership can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that damage was caused by a vehicle owner or a third-party lube station, then the warranty will remain valid. Dealership There are certain reasons a person may want to go to a dealership to have an oil change. It is typical of dealer service stations to train their mechanics in the specific design of the automobiles they are servicing. That means they'll have first-hand knowledge and be familiar with the design of the engine and the characteristics of the make and model of the car better than anyone else. This can give drivers peace of mind that they are getting the right parts and that

the service work is being done in accordance with their service warranty. Some dealerships also offer service plans that discount the cost of oil changes if done at the dealer service station. This service package might even be part of a finance deal, so the cost of the oil changes could already be paid for. The oil changes may be done in conjunction with other service work, including tire rotation. Third-party station One of the main advantages to using a private lube-type company is that they are usually less expensive than services provided by a dealership. Quick lube stations typically have access to manufacturers' data

to ensure the correct type of oil and filter are used. Larger companies may have an extensive training program that goes over the latest technology and the models of cars. Another benefit to a lube station is that an appointment is not always necessary, which may not be the case with a dealership. With a number of service bays and substantial staff on hand, there also could be a shorter wait time, which is a boon to busy individuals. Self-service Doing an oil change at home is obviously the most costeffective option. But it's the most labor-intensive as well. You also will need to have specific tools

for the job, as well as 5 to 6 quarts of motor oil on hand. Jacking up the car to have access to the underside of the engine will be necessary so that you can reach the engine pan plug to drain the old oil. Wrenches as well as buckets to drain the oil are other tools to keep on hand. Used motor oil is not something that can simply be tossed in the trash or poured down a drain. It must be carefully contained and recycled to avoid harming the environment. Because of the work involved in an oil change at home, many people opt to have it done elsewhere. Remember, while there are many places that are qualified, it's up to the driver to decide where to go.

Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute students are doing their part to help save an orphanage in Haiti. The students set up a table at the Camrose Farmers' Market this past Saturday to sell homemade items like head bands, wallets, earrings, paintings and thank you cards in hopes of generating enough revenue to offset the operating expenses of God's Littlest Angels. The students are also putting together a community worship time featuring skits, prayer and music, in which they will be taking a free will offering. "Every little bit that we raise can help," said Emma Murray. The God's Littlest Angels orphanage has been operating in Haiti for the last 19 years, but has recently started to run short on the funds it needs to pay for food, diapers and medical supplies. If it doesn't have enough money at the end of this month it may be forced to shut down, as was the case a couple of months ago with another orphanage in the same area. "They (the orphanage) are receiving donations now but most of that money is committed to the building program and can't be used for anything else," said Murray. Murray and four other CLBI students – Nicole Vikse, Sarah Leitner, Janaya Hunter and Ashalee Volmer – spent this past month of January work-

ing at the God's Littlest Angels orphanage as part of their school's second-year mission experience. "We were each given four †

dren at God's Littlest Angels who have lost their parents in the Haiti earthquake, there are many others who are there because they have disabilities that require the type of medical attention their parents just cannot afford to provide. "There are two buildings now: the main house or the nursery, which has about 40 children who are three years of age or under and the toddler house, which has about 60 children between the ages of three and sixteen," said Hunter. All five of the CLBI students were thrilled to be part of the work the orphanage is doing. "I really got attached to the children in the two hours I was able to spend with them each day," said Murray. "When they don't have a volunteer come in to see them they are stuck in their crib and don't have the chance to go to the balcony where all the toys are. "By the time we left them they were running around and just so happy." Vikse said it was good for her and her friends to be able to build relationships with the orphaned children. "I enjoyed taking the kids for walks and playing with them. There was one little boy who missed me when I was sick and couldn't play with him. When I came back (after recovering) he crawled over to me as fast as he could."

CLBI students working to save orphanage in Haiti

Hunter said she still misses the children with whom she spent time. "I enjoyed taking walks with them and watching them play with each other." Hunter said one of the things she most appreciated about God's Littlest Angels was the good adoption process that had been established. "They do all the proper paper work so all the adoptions are official and legal and good." Hunter said one of the hardest things about the possibility that God's Littlest Angels might close is the fact that many of the kids are already in the adoption process and trying to get to new families. "It would just be so sad if the orphanage closed and they never got to a family." Because God's Littlest Angels is a faith mission, all volunteers must raise their own support for their stay in Haiti and pay for their room and board. "Volunteering at an orphanage in a third world country requires a person to be flexible," states the God's Littlest Angels website. "There might be days without electricity and water. You may be required to do jobs that do not involve the children as there are many different jobs that need to be done as well." Anyone wishing to donate directly to God's Littlest Angels may visit the website at www.

Be Car Care Aware Canada

With no end in sight to rising gas prices, consumers who modify their driving habits and properly maintain their vehicles will get more kilometres per litre. Be Car Care Aware Canada recommends the following ways to drive smart and save gas money: – Observe the speed limit.



Fuel efficiency decreases rapidly above 100 km/h. – Avoid excessive idling. Idling gets zero kilometres per litre. Warming up the vehicle for one or two minutes is sufficient. – Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower fuel efficiency by 33 per cent on the highway and five per cent in the city.

% 163$)"4& '*/"/$*/(






– Consolidate trips. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much gas as one longer multi-purpose trip. – Don't haul unneeded items in the trunk. An extra 45 kilograms in the trunk reduces fuel efficiency by 1 to 2 per cent. – Check the gas cap. Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.

8,250 $"4) N "/% $3&%*54 ,0%*", 1"$,"(& */$-6%&4


– Replace dirty or clogged air filters on older vehicles to improve fuel consumption by as much as 14 per cent. – Replace dirty spark plugs, which can decrease fuel efficiency by .85 kilometres per litre. – Change oil regularly to gain an additional .5 kilometres per litre.

Drive smart to save more money on gasoline

– Keep your car properly tuned to improve fuel consumption by an average of 4 per cent. – Keep tires properly inflated and improve fuel consumption by three per cent. Some motorists think they are saving money when they put off needed vehicle maintenance. This is not so.

On the road … GPS usage While there are no hard statistics on the number of people who own GPS devices, thousands of people have either a GPS device that comes pre-equipped in a car that they purchased or a standalone device that was bought after the fact. These devices come pre-loaded with maps that work with satellites in space. The GPS receiver figures out the distance to each and uses this information to deduce the location of the device in a process called trilateration. GPS devices have made paper maps obsolete for many people. While GPS devices can be very convenient, especially on road trips, there are some tips to keep in mind. * Place the GPSdevice where it won't obstruct your vision or take your eyes off of the road. * Don't treat the GPS as if it is infallible. Use common sense, especially where it would seem the GPS is guiding you in the wrong way. *Do not play with the controls while operating the car. If you need to adjust something on the GPS, do so only after pulling over to a safe area.

Preventive maintenance tips We Sell and Install to keep your car on the road Heavy Duty As any vehicle owner knows, the sticker price is only the beginning. The cost of maintaining a vehicle and keeping it on the road is not exactly small potatoes. As the economy begins to rebound, a significant percentage of motorists have resolved to keep their vehicles on the road longer in an effort to stretch their automobile dollars. That's a sound resolution, and one that is not necessarily difficult to accomplish. Contrary to popular belief, cars are built to last, and it's often a vehicle owner's poor habits that reduce a car's life expectancy as opposed to the vehicle manufacturer's shoddy product. Drivers looking to lengthen their vehicle's lifespan can employ preventive maintenance that should keep a car running strong for years to come. Air Filter When examining the vehicle's air filter (check the vehicle manual for location), look for dirt or dust buildup. If the filter is filthy, simply replace it. Auto parts stores sell air filters, and most drivers shouldn't have trouble replacing a filter by themselves. A dirty air filter can negatively affect fuel economy and make it seem as though a vehicle is constantly going uphill in a stiff wind. When a dirty air filter is replaced, drivers will notice an instant impact in how the car drives and are likely to save a few dollars at the filling station as well. Belts and Hoses Issues with belts or hoses are often recognizable to the naked eye, regardless of a driver's automotive skill.

A hose in poor condition can appear bulging or brittle, and should not feel too soft or too hard. If a hose exhibits any of these symptoms, replace it. A belt that's worn or frayed should also be replaced. Brake Fluid One of the more expensive repair jobs on a vehicle is to replace the brakes. Brakes will need to be replaced over the course of a vehicle's lifespan, but drivers should routinely check the vehicle's brake fluid. Without sufficient brake fluid, the brakes' lifespan decreases dramatically. Checking the brake fluid is easy, simply look in the owner's manual to find brake fluid reservoir and remove the lid (some vehicles might require the lid be unscrewed). The reservoir will likely have instructions on the inside advising how much brake fluid should be added. If the fluid is below the line of demarcation, add fluid up to that line. But be careful not to overfill. Check the brake fluid levels on a monthly basis. Motor Oil Oil change guidelines have changed dramatically thanks to better cars and more reliable motor oils. But it still helps to check motor oil levels after every fill up. If motor oil levels are low, add more oil. If oil is significantly low after each fill up, consult a mechanic just to be safe. Exhaust Once a year, be it at a routine tuneup or should repair work be necessary, ask your mechanic to check the vehicle's emissions. Failing an emissions test might be against the law, and a failed test could be indicative of a larger problem.

In addition, inspect the muffler and exhaust pipe for holes, particularly after winter, when debris from snow trucks may do significant damage. Replace any damaged or rusted parts. Power Steering Power steering fluid should also be inspected on a monthly basis. Checking power steering is the same as checking the oil, but it helps to also inspect the pump for any leaks. Tires Keeping tires properly inflated pays numerous dividends. Properly inflated tires make it easier for the engine to operate, lowering fuel costs while also decreasing wear and tear on the engine. The owner's manual should list a recommended tire pressure, and the local filling station likely has an air pump. Maintaining tires also involves checking for wear and tear. Uneven wear could indicate the tires are misaligned. Discuss this with your mechanic. Transmission Fluid When checking transmission fluid, do so while the car is running and after the engine has warmed up. Always be certain to put the parking brake on when checking transmission fluid. If the vehicle needs transmission fluid, add the recommended fluid but be careful not to overfill. Prolonging a vehicle's lifespan is not as difficult as it sounds. Oftentimes, all it takes is minor, yet routine, maintenance to keep a car on the road for years and years.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER March 27, 2012


Hoop Trojans garner the championship crown By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans boys' basketball is the best 3A team in the province. After coming into provincials as the third ranked team, the James Saby coached squad vowed to earn a spot in the final. The cards all fell into place when CCHS decided to host the provincials on March 15 to 17. The squad then turned up the performance on the court a notch to knock off some high powered clubs. CCHS needed overtime to beat Cochrane 60-57 in the final, after tying the game in the last minute. Although the Camrose offence was firing on all cylinders in the last quarter and in overtime, it was a defensive play that won it for the Trojans. "Caleb Reed made the play of the game. He stood his ground when one of their players charged at him in overtime," said Myles Derry. "He (the Cochrane player) was looking for a foul, but Caleb stood in there and took one for the team. When I helped him up, I whispered in his ear, congratulations, you just won us provincials." Nobody wanted to make a mistake late in the contest or in overtime. "None of us wanted to be the one that didn't hustle, who would have cost us the game,"

said Connor. "Everyone played hard and it was a team effort." Camrose reached the final game by outscoring the Chestermere Lakers 85-78 in a tough match. "We have been preparing for this day (celebrating the provincial title) all year. We wanted to play and compete with the best," said Myles, one of the captains on the championship squad. "Most people say that, but it was actually true for us," said Connor Foreman, co-captain of the Trojans. "Our philosophy all year, no matter who we were playing, was to play, to play against the best," added Myles. "We have literally been playing for this championship for two years," said Connor. "We lost to this team (Cochrane) last year and they went on to win provincials. They brought back most of the same players, so we knew what we had to do." Cochrane started with a good sized lead, but in the second half, some of the shoots that went in earlier started to bounce off the rim. "Our coaches won this for us as well. All three of them know this game inside and out. I wouldn't want to play in this final without those three coaches. They are the best coaches anyone could ask for," said Myles, and was echoed by Connor. "They have been preparing for this game for

many years. It all started in the Stars basketball program when I was in Grade 1," said Connor. Although coach Saby has taken a team to high school provincials for several years, this was the first time he was able to reap the gold. "We all have close relationships with our coaches. We did it for them because they have always been there for us," said Myles. "Coach Saby is a great

coach, but he is a friend and is amazing." Coaching the championship Trojans were James Saby, John Hamilton and Davin Wilcox. Chestermere was also a tough team to beat. "To be honest, any one of the top four teams could have won this," said Myles. "If a call goes a different way or a bounce changes, any team could have done it," added Myles.

In the opening game for the Trojans, Camrose defeated St. Albert 58-48. Members of the 2011–12 championship team are Jeremy Bonter, Luke Bramfield, Jeff Brausen, Michael Byce, Braden Davis, Myles Derry, Caine Erickson, Connor Foreman, Hamilton Fowler, Logan Ottas, Caleb Reed and Nathan Saby.

Doan encourages basketball players to embrace the moment By Murray Green Leighann Doan was not only a dominant basketball player for the Stettler Wildcats against the Camrose Composite High School Trojans, she went on to become the rookie of the year in the

Canada West university league in 1996-97. "I remember Leighann playing against us and we lost 83-51. She scored 51 points that night, so technically we tied her," joked CCHS girls' coach Andy Lyster. "Watching her with Stettler and

in Calgary, I was always amazed by her poise, effort, skill set, class and sportsmanship. I went on line to check her biography, and we don't have enough time to list her accomplishments." She was the player of the year in 1999–2000 and again

Myles Derry, of the Camrose Composite High School Trojans, left, blocks a Cochrane player's vision to the net in the final game. CCHS scored in the last 10 seconds to tie the game and force overtime.

in 2000–01, but her dream was to make Team Canada and play in the Olympics. Her dream was partially realized when she played for the nation, but she just missed qualifying for the Olympic Games. She also played professionally in France. Leighann was the guest speaker for the 3A basketball provincials held in Camrose March 15 to 17. "It is a pleasure to be part of sports. I want to give back to those who have given me so much. Make sure you thank your coaches and parents," said Leighann. "The benefit of playing at this level is the healthy lifestyle. Secondly, it takes a lot of discipline. I took five classes every year at university, so I could finish in five years. It took a lot of discipline. It is a big thing that carries on in life. Thirdly, you have to learn to live with the ups and downs and that helps you later in life." Winning and losing happens. "You are not always going to win, so learning how to lose is important. I really wanted to win at an Olympic qualifier, so I could go to Athens. We ended up losing by six to Brazil and didn't qualify. Since I played basketball in Grade 10 or 11, I wanted to go to the Olympic Games. You go through highs and lows. My high was making the national team and the low was missing the opportunity to go to the Olympics. You get stronger by dealing with those emotions, even though it is difficult at the time," said Leighann, to about 300 high school athletes. "Those things I wouldn't change because they have made me what I am today." She said learning how to interact with others is priceless. "Later on in life you have to interact with people and sports

is a great way to learn. Together you strive to accomplish a goal. You are encouraged and supported by your teammates." Leighann tried out for the national team as an 18-year-old. She was cut that year and the next few years. "I finally made the team as a 22-year-old and it was a sense of achievement. Enjoy the friends around your table because the people you experience are your friends for life. "There is nothing like sports to bring you closer to others. You come together as a team. I'm not suggesting everyone go home tonight and shave your heads, but you will find an identity that bring you together as a team." She talked about her brother Shane who plays hockey for the Phoenix Coyotes. "I asked him why, at 35 years old, are you still playing the game? "He said it is the competition and the love of the sport. He has a blast with the rookies that come in and he makes it fun. It is that identity and sense of belonging to a team that makes it special. Why would someone like Wayne Gretzky want to coach? It is about the sense of being part of a team and a sense of identity. Remember the time you spend together." She said in the middle of all this, you are building character. "I don't want this to be stressful, but you are building character. Enjoy the games, the experience and all that goes with it," said Leighann. "Be thankful to those who have helped you along the way. Lastly, dream big. Even if you don't achieve all of your dreams, it is about the journey."

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.

Advance tickets are now available at the Bailey Theatre box office or online at Jimmy the Janitor has been called “the Dean of Dust, the Squire of the Squeegee, the CEO of CLR." He's been called to entertain audiences across Canada and the United States for the past 25 years. The twohour comedy cabaret is rated PG and starts at 7:30 p.m. Jimmy the Janitor has ten comedy CDs and his comedy feature “Jimmy Live” is heard daily in 70 radio markets across Canada. The jovial janitor has appeared on CBC Radio/Television, CTV and the Comedy Network. Jimmy the Janitor's show at King's Theatre at Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, was a complete sellout. “What a great show," said general manager Geoff Keymer. "We were overwhelmed with inquiries and sales." Big Country 93.1 Grande Prairie reported listeners were calling in after the show there to say it was "awesome." At the Dryden Cultural Centre Jimmy had members of the audience laughing so hard they cried. The Construction Association of Victoria said Jimmy the Janitor swept the West Coast crowd off their feet with clean, “bang your fists on the table hilarity."

Report from the Legislature Verlyn Olson, MLA, Wetaskiwin-Camrose

The Spring Session of the Alberta Legislature opened with the Throne Speech on February 7, followed by the Budget on February 9. Just prior to the beginning of Session, I attended my first conference of federal, provincial, and territorial Justice Ministers in Charlottetown. It was a great opportunity to meet Ministers from across the country and to discuss issues of common concern. In those meetings, and others since I have returned home from Charlottetown, I have been especially encouraged to see a growing awareness that we need to be innovative in our approach to crime prevention and reduction. We continue to talk about finding ways of getting people who have mental health and addiction issues out of the justice system and into the healthcare system. I was with the Premier and a number of other Ministers in Calgary recently to announce our new Integrated Justice Services Project (IJSP). Its purpose is to break the cycle of repeat offenders by providing probation services in the same location as mental health and addiction counselling, housing assistance and so on. The Calgary Police told me that they have arrested some offenders as many as 170 times in one year, and those same people often find themselves making numerous hospital emergency visits and trips to court. I have also had great opportunities to meet with officials from other countries to discuss issues of common interest, including trade, energy and environmental issues and cultural exchange. I was fortunate to have met the Finnish Ambassador and the Minister of Economy. Also, just recently Jeff Johnson, Diana McQueen, Evan Berger, Cal Dallas and I, all Ministers of Norwegian heritage, spent an evening with the Norwegian Ambassador and 13 members of Norway’s Standing Committee on Environment and Energy. They were here to tour Statoil’s operations. Statoil is 80% owned by the Government of Norway. In terms of my activities in the constituency, some of the highlights have been a tour by the Minister of Culture and Community Services, Heather Klimchuk of the Reynolds Alberta Museum and the Camrose Railway Museum, and her attendance at the opening of the Nordlys Film Festival at the Bailey Theatre in Camrose. I also met with Federal Public Security Minister, Vic Toews in Hobbema and had a great time at the opening of the Boston Pizza Provincial Men’s Curling Championships in Camrose, the Millet Firemen’s Ball, Scandinavian Night in Camrose, the Wetaskiwin Jazz Society Concert and the Wetaskiwin High School Big Band night.

Back at the Legislature, I defended my departmental budget on the first night of budget deliberations. The 2012 Budget contains no sales tax and no tax increases. It forecasts a small deficit this year and a surplus of 5 billion dollars in three years. This is not just wishful thinking, as some have suggested. It is based on estimates from independent and international agencies. One of the reasons for the higher revenue projections is that there are 13 large projects which will, according to the royalty formula, soon start paying significantly higher royalties. In terms of some of the more controversial subjects you may have heard about on the news, the Premier has followed through in a number of commitments. Some of these commitments include the appointment of a former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, last fall, to review MLA pay and the calling of a Judicial Inquiry into allegations of queue jumping, after accepting all 21 recommendations of the Health Quality Council Report. Also, the introduction of the Property Rights Advocate Act which guarantees landowner rights to consultation, compensation and the Courts, as well as provide for appointment of a Property Rights Advocate. This is going to be an exciting year for Albertans and I truly believe that the direction our government is taking is going to put our province in a position where we will maximize our full potential. I consider it an honour and a privilege to be your government representative and I will continue to work as hard as I can to ensure our constituency of Wetaskiwin-Camrose remains one of the best places to live in Alberta.

Students go hungry to help Haiti By Murray Green Chester Ronning School students are planning to go Hungry for Haiti to create awareness of the country's continued struggle to rebuild after an earthquake three years ago. Students, teachers, parents and members of the community are encouraged to donate the cost of lunch on April 12 to help save an orphanage in Haiti. "We are asking people to donate the price of a lunch," said teacher Marie Olson and a member of the Chester Ronning School Hungry for Haiti Committee. Three years ago, a devastating earthquake destroyed much of Haiti. Many children were left homeless and often without parents. Today much of Haiti looks the same, as rubble is still piled in the streets, tents are still being used as homes and orphanages are in even greater need. "God’s Little Angels is the orphanage Chester Ronning School will directly support through our donations," said Marie. "On April 12, we invite and challenge all community members to give up their lunch and donate the cost of it to this project. At 11:30 a.m. in the gym there will be a Hungry for Haiti experiential assembly about the earthquake and the orphanage in Haiti. Everyone is invited to attend to show support for Haiti and to help be a model for our students that global citizenship is important." Following the assembly, students return to their rooms, while waiting for “aid workers” to bring their lunch of bread and water. "We will gather on the floor with the heat turned down and create cards for the children of Haiti. Guests are welcome to join any class to share this time," added Marie. "We hope to instill in our students and ourselves a very tiny sense of how it is for the Haitians and an awareness of how fortunate we are to rarely feel hunger." Donations can be dropped off at Chester Ronning School or to a Chester Ronning staff member. If a student may not be able to go without lunch, the school suggests he or she bring just the basic minimum required for lunch and give up sweets and treats. Parents and members of the community are also invited to challenge their workplaces to go Hungry for Haiti.

(MS) – Thanks to advancements in medicine and an increased emphasis on physical activity and fitness, people are living longer than ever before. While that’s a good thing, longer life expectancies mean money now has to go longer as well. For most people, retirement is a chance to sit back and enjoy the fruits of a life of labor. However, caution, especially with respect to finances, is an important element of retirement, as no retirees want to outlive their money. But living on a fixed income doesn’t mean you have to pinch every penny. Instead, the following tips can help you enjoy retirement while also decreasing the likelihood your money will run out too early. · Consider reducing insurance costs. Seniors who are parents often have life insurance policies that will pay out to their children in the case of their death. However, as you get older and your children cultivate their own wealth, you can begin to carry less insurance. While you’ll still want to carry some life insurance should you predecease your spouse, if your children have established themselves financially, you can save money by reducing your life insurance coverage. Another way to reduce insurance costs is by raising your deductible. If you currently have a small ($250) or standard ($500) deductible on auto or home insurance, consider raising the deductible to $1,000. While you’ll have to pay more money up front in the case of an accident, you’ll save money on your insurance every year. · Ask about generic prescriptions. Many seniors earmark a substantial amount of money each month for prescriptions. For some seniors, monthly prescription bills can be jaw-dropping. Ask your doctor if the drug you need is available in a generic prescription, which is often far less expensive while just as effective. Also, don’t use the neighborhood pharmacy simply because it’s nearby. Prices on medications vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. A little leg work can save you money each month. · Inquire about senior discounts. Many seniors will say one of the best things about being a senior citizen is the numerous discounts available on everything from hotels to restaurants to movie admissions. However, if you don’t ask about a possible discount, you probably won’t be told. Some credit card companies even lower the interest rates for senior citizens, a discount that could save you more money than the rest of the discounts combined. While discounts can be great, it’s also important not to just accept the senior discount as the best offer out there. For example, a senior discount on an airline flight might seem like a great deal, but might not look so great when compared to the cost of online booking Web sites that offer far bigger discounts. Before you make any big-ticket purchases, be it for travel or anything else that has a price tag in the hundreds or thousands of dollars, be sure to shop around. Just because some retailer offers a senior discount doesn’t make it the best deal out there.

The Melody Lingers On: a tribute to PJ Bailey

ACAC HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIP It’ss been a long, long 37 years! Rob Hauser and staff of Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre bestow a special congratulatory message to Joel Danyluk. We’re not surprised you led your team to the championship against NAIT over the weekend. Nor are we surprised you earned player honors at each of the tournament games. We’ve come to know you as a winner at our store, too! Throughout your school/hockey season, we’ve also had the privilege of having you work part-time with us. Joel worked for a Home Hardware franchisee in LaRonge, SK while playing his junior hockey in that community. His parents are operating partners of the Home Hardware store in Yorkton, SK – a store Joel literally grew up in! We’ve enjoyed your enthusiasm, your contagious positive outlook and your talent for business. We wish you the very best in the future whether it’s higher levels of hockey, a business career with Home Hardware, or another occupational choice. In the meantime, we’re thrilled and fortunate you crossed our path and worked and played in our community. Don’t forget to come out this Sunday to meet Joel and others from the Augustana Vikings Hockey Club.

PJ Bailey, son of Val and Bob Bailey.

Local entertainers shine in Oliver!

By Val Bailey

On September 22, 2011, we received the phone call all parents fear. Our 19-year-old son was in critical condition as a result of a motor vehicle collision. His injuries were insurmountable and we lost our precious son, PJ Bailey, that night. Over the last five months, we have come to an understanding, through the overwhelming response from the Camrose and Edmonton areas, that we not only lost a son, but our respective communities lost someone they loved and treasured. By all accounts, the world lost a gifted and very valuable member of the human race. What stood out in the hundreds of messages we received from PJ's many teachers, friends, peers, employers, fellow employees, and acquaintances, was his profound respect for all people, young and old, his exceptional way of communicating with others – helping at every turn, his old-world courtesy, and his community-minded spirit. As many young people noted, PJ treated everyone as a close friend, regardless of circumstances or station and was protective and supportive of those less fortunate. Though he was still very young, he was a multi-gifted individual and managed to make a deep and lasting impression through his contributions in music, dance, and mechanics and through his sunny and caring disposition. As a fitting tribute to our son, we have established an endowment in PJ's name with the Battle River Community Foundation, an organization born from a vision to establish an ongoing, long term means of supporting important community ideals related to arts and culture, education, health, recreation and more. In order to raise the money necessary to name the endowment and make it self-sustaining, generating community scholarships and the like into the future, we have planned a concert – The Melody Lingers On...A Concert Tribute to PJ Bailey. The concert is slated for Friday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. at The Bailey Theatre in Camrose. It features a variety of talented performers, all with great significance in PJ's life. It also features the world premiere of a big band jazz ballad, "Song for PJ", commissioned from Grant MacEwan University's composer in residence, Allan Gilliland, and performed by The River City Big Band from Edmonton. This band will play a number of tunes and will collaborate with several exciting artists, including Joel Gray, trumpet and Ray Baril, saxophone – also on faculty at Grant MacEwan University. Other performers include Brittany Bailey (jazz & pop vocals) and Halley Bailey (mezzo-soprano); Simply Brass; Inna Luzanac, piano; Kathleen Corcoran, soprano; Paul "Sparky" Johnson; Dave McDougall; Blue Thistle; Victoria Carlson, percussion; CHORAZZ!; and the Camrose Academy of Dance senior lyrical dance troupe. Tickets may be purchased at The Bailey Theatre Ticket Outlet and online at Tickets may go quickly. Those wanting their choice of seats are urged to purchase early. If there are any tickets remaining, they will also be available at the door. For those unable to attend who would like to support this cause, donations to the PJ Bailey Fund at the Battle River Community Foundation are also welcome at any time.

Brilliant performances were turned in by, left to right, Steve Kambeitz as Bill Sykes, Ashley Kambeitz as Nancy, Dave McDougall as Fagin, Davis Dewalt as Oliver and Beyata Hackborn as The Artful Dodger in the ChurchMice Players version of Oliver. The final performances will be held at the Norsemen Inn on March 30 and 31. By Murray Green

Director Sylvia Lyon and producer Theo Thirsk did a masterful job in bringing back the Charles Dickens, classic Oliver! to the ChurchMice Players stage at the Norsemen Inn. Oliver!, is set in London. The 13-year-old boy runs away from the workhouse to seek a better life, but ends up with a group of thieves who have a new line of work for him. He is not sure who to trust in his journey. The ChurchMice Players used the Lionel Bart version of the classic to bring it to life in both acting and music. Handling a large cast with several set changes and having

perfect timing with the musicians was no easy task. The entire cast, right down to the young children, didn't seem to miss a cue or line during the re-enactment of the child labour situation in England during the 1850 time period. Although the cast had great performances from everyone, Dave McDougall, Davis Dewalt, Steven Kambeitz, Ashley Kambeitz, Don Hutchinson and Beyata Hackborn were absolutely brilliant. The timing and music from the band was excellent. They set the mood and added a whole new dimension to the classic play. A lot of time and effort were

put into creating the right costumes for this classic. It was a job well done. The stage crew did wonders in changing the venue to a good place for the play. Set builders Donna and Wayne Werner led a crew that created the perfect scenes for Oliver! Like the main character suggests during meal time, the performance left you wanting more! If you haven't seen the local production, there are still two shows left. Tickets for the shows on March 30 and 31 are on sale at Cathel Books. The supper begins at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

It's that time again! Tax season. The SOS program will be hosting the Revenue Canada Volunteer Income Tax program again this year. This means anyone who is low income (making less than $30,000 a year for single or making less than $39,000 a year for a couple) can come to the SOS program office at #102, 4909-48 Street, to have their taxes done by our volunteers. We started this tax season on March 12, 2012, and will run until the end of April. When you come to our office we will have you fill out two forms with our help. The first form will give our volunteers the necessary information to do your taxes, and the second form is to acknowledge that you are aware your taxes are being done by a volunteer and that they will be done on the computer. Both forms must be signed. If you are unable to bring in your tax documents yourself, you may have a friend drop them off as long as they have all your information and are willing to sign on your behalf. Make sure you have everything you need that is relevant to your taxes. That means you must have all your T-slips, donation and receipts, prescription printouts, etc. If you are missing any tax documents, it is your responsibility to track down that information before bringing anything to us. Please come to drop them off during our office hours, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This is a drop-in service, no need for an appointment. You will leave your information at our office. Our volunteer comes to pick it up, does your taxes with Revenue Canada confirmation, and then we will contact you when your taxes are ready for you to come and pick up. We cannot do taxes that have just been dropped off through our mailbox, as signatures are required for us to be able to do them.
