Rare opportunity for skywatchers Sales Manager

By Dan Jensen

Skywatchers from Camrose and all over the world will have their telescopes out June 4 when the planet Venus transits the face of the sun. "Since the invention of the telescope four centuries ago, the planet Venus has passed in front of – transited – the face of the sun on seven occasions," said University of Alberta astronomer Dr. Doug Hube, who will be

talking about the event in Room C167 of the Augustana campus classroom building tomorrow night (April 11), starting at 7 p.m. "Only six of those transits have been observed." In the 18th and 19th centuries, observations of transits of Venus constituted "big science" and many European nations sent expeditions to remote locations.

Dr. Hube will be providing instructions in his presentation on where and how to observe the transit safely, as well as describe the science, scientific importance and the history of the observations of the transits. The witnessing of the Venus transit on June 4 will be a true once-in-a-liftime opportunity. The transit after that won't happen until December, 2117.

Public library looking ahead By Dan Jensen

City council will have to make a decision in the not too distant future on another Camrose facility. Camrose Public Library presented a report to council April 2 indicating that with 17,286 citizens living in the City of Camrose today and projections of over 24,000 by the year 2020, not including the surrounding service area, the population of local post secondary institutions or travellers using the library as they pass through, planning for issues related to how the library might deliver services to the residents of Camrose is becoming a concern. The Camrose Public Library is undersized, with 12,702 square foot of space housing 44,841 items, 21 full-time equivalent staff and 12 internet stations. The space requirement is expected to grow to 18,000 to 20,000 square feet by the time the city population reaches 20,000 to 25,000, and 60,000 square feet by the time the city population reaches 60,000. "It is getting tight, I can attest to that," said councillor Daryl Shillington, City council's representative on the Camrose Public Library board. A Camrose Public Library facility review done in 2001 projected needs for 2011-2012 to be 15,291 square feet. "Over the last few years we have done space optimization plans to try to give us more shelf life," said Shillington. The library developed a major plan of service in 2011 and plans to conduct another community needs assessment in 2013 to provide a better understanding of the needs of the community going forward. "The Camrose Public Library board is committed to making the library more friendly and welcoming for patrons by understanding the needs

of the community," said the report. "The board's goal is for the library to become an open, vibrant, welcoming and sharing community living room in the heart of the city and they are reaching for this goal by following a community-led service planning model with the understanding that libraries are inclusive institutions created equally for everyone in the community." A 2011 citizen satisfaction syndicated survey showed the Camrose Public Library as having the lowest score of all City services. While respondents were generally happy with the physical characteristics, they were disappointed with the age of the collections, which they described as "old, dirty and ratty," the availability of e-resources, and the fact the library is not open on Sundays. Improving accessibility by extending Sunday hours would have cost implications including staff wages, staff retention, maintenance of the building and increased power costs associated with heating and cooling of the building, operation, and lights and computers. Camrose Public Library is currently in the process of weeding its collection based on the condition and use of materials. "The collection is currently a little oddly balanced," said director of library services Deb Cryderman. "With the university library right in the city our library should be serving the purpose of providing leisure reading for the community rather than research reading. At the moment our collection is 65 per cent non-fiction – the stuff that should be in the university library – and 35 per cent fiction, and that should be reversed. We should have about 65 per cent fiction and 35 per cent nonfiction." Continued on page 7

Last Supper

Matthew (Rob MacMillan) has his feet washed by Jesus (the Rev. Jacques Vaillancourt) in a dramatization of The Last Supper, performed at St. Andrew's Anglican Church April 5. The drama required the dedicated efforts of many members of the St. Andrew's congregation, including Elaine Hook, who made the costumes, and Dorothy Marshall, who wrote the script.

Good and bad news in Camrose police report By Dan Jensen

The bad news from the Camrose Police Service's 2011 crime analysis released March 30 is that the number of reported criminal offences was seven per cent higher than it was in 2010. The good news is that the number of reported criminal offences was 18 per cent lower than the 10-year average. "A contributor of the 2011 increase was the our aggressive targeted enforcement of habitual criminals, which will continue," said Camrose Police Chief D.L. Kambeitz. The total number of reported criminal offences in 2011 was 1,918, up from 1,793 in 2011. Crimes against persons

The total number of crimes against persons increased by 34 per cent, from 298 to 398, with the majority of 2011 offences being Level 1 assault, at 173. "Level one assaults usually include the victim and offender being known to each other and having a property or relationship dispute," states police com-

mentary associated with the numbers. "Many of the incidents include alcohol or drug contributions and the majority of assaults are minor in nature, with many being resolved via mediation. Of the 173 incidents, only 58 resulted in charges being laid." The reported number of assaults on police officers was ten. "When assessing the assaults on police officers statistics show that one individual was responsible for four of the 10 reported incidents," said the commentary. This individual has been flagged as a risk, notifying police members to take precautions when dealing with the individual." The number of domestic violence incidents dropped from 66 in 2011 to 62 in 2010, while the number of sexual assaults went from eight in 2010 to nine in 2011. Criminal harassment crimes increased by 45 per cent, from 40 in 2010 to 58 in 2011, while the

number of crimes involving the uttering of threats increased by 24 per cent, from 83 to 103. "A contributing factor to the increased reported incidents can be linked to the use of electronic or computerized communication," states the commentary. "Many of the reported incidents involve victims being harassed or receiving threats via email, social media or text messages. As the electronic communication market expands, it will continue to provide a convenient tool for offenders to utilize, which may lead to future increases in reported incidents." Police dealt with one reported occurrence of manslaughter in 2011. Crimes against property

Break and enters increased 19 per cent, theft of motor vehicles increased 52 per cent, theft over $5,000 increased 100 per cent (from four to eight) and theft under $5,000 increased 12 per cent (369 to 413) Property damage offences decreased three per cent and possession of sto-

len property decreased by 36 per cent. The number of arsons resulting in the damage of property totalled six, down from eight in 2010. The total number of frauds in 2011 was 101, down from 105 in 2010. "The majority of these reported incidents consisted of fraud attempts through the mail or the internet, where requests were made to forward money to foreign destinations in promise of greater rewards," said the commentary. "Many of these occurrences were deterred through crime prevention, education and enforcement initiatives." The number of credit card frauds dropped from 12 in 2010 to three. Other offences

The number of other criminal code offences (breach of probation, bail violations, weapons, disturbing the peace, obstructing/ resisting a police officer, indecent acts) decreased by 11 per cent, from 366 to 325.

Bail violations were down from 121 to 89, a decrease of 26 per cent. Drug offences

The reported number of drug offences was 189, an increase of 13 per cent from 2010. "Through targeted enforcement and education initiatives, the Camrose Police Service has maintained a consistent and proactive approach to addressing issues associated with illicit drug activities," said the commentary. In 2011, aggressive and coordinated enforcement initiatives, internal drug and intelligence gathering training and special projects were utilized by the Major Crimes Unit, Crime Reduction Team, Patrol Section, School Resource Officer and Crime Prevention Officer to combat drug related issues in our community. By continuing to utilize these same strategies and initiatives, subsequent increases may be noted in reported drug offences in future crime analysis reports." Continued on page 5

Camrose Public Library making big plans Continued from page 4

The library has received a $45,000 cheque from the government to assist with renovations, including new paint and carpet, and over the coming months will be rearranging collections, allocating more space for soft seating so that people can gather and be social, and carving out quiet spaces for readers or exam writers. "The library is an important community space and having a long-term concept to address the library in its entirety and its potential to be a community gathering space is paramount to our future space planning," states the report. Cryderman noted that, over the last few years, libraries have become less book repositories and more people gathering places. "We see the trend growing more now in the rural areas. Any given day you can see people using the Camrose Public Library to sit, stay, listen, play, read or even nap. Groups gather to meet at the library, individuals attend programs, some come

Camrose Public Library for a quiet place to read, while others come to share opinions and entertainment." Camrose Public Library understands it has an important role to fulfill in terms of providing access to new technology. "Not only should libraries provide internet access, but Alberta Public Library standards have identified that 40 per cent of seating should be capable of connecting to power supplies to provide computer docking

stations for patron computers," states the report. "Libraries play an important and growing role in support of other devices and access to materials available via these devices." Cryderman explained that Camrose Public Library (CPL) is part of the TAL library network, meaning that anyone with a CPL membership card can access materials from the Augustana library. In the Battle River School Division, students

are using their library membership cards to access the Camrose Public Library database for research. Councillor Brandon Blatz suggested it might be possible to integrate Camrose Public Library with the new city hall. "The new city hall we said we want to be an inviting place, a place for the public, and there are several points in this particular (library) study that says that is exactly what the library is and wants to continue to be. Why couldn't we integrate that into one capital project instead of perhaps having individual buildings?" Camrose Public Library board chair Anjah Howard expressed the opinion that combining a new library with a new city hall or a pool renovation is the way to go. "Then people can use multiuse space and it would also potentially reduce the size of the library needs because there would be the potential of sharing meeting space. Councillor Gerry Galenza said that while the idea of hav-

ing more than one service in the same building is a good one, a city hall/library situation might not be the best answer. "The only caution I have is that we spent almost ten years trying to address the city hall issue, and that does not include a library. Galenza said it may be possible to convince the business north of the library to relocate to the industrial area so the library could expand. "It seems to me that we have an industry that, over the years, has caused some grief (for the library) in terms of noise and exhaust. To me it just doesn't fit there. Sometimes I think we need to be a leader in that and look at possibly relocating it to a better place in the industrial area and freeing up some land." Data from Banner Research & Consulting Inc. shows that 48 per cent of adult Albertans have used a public library in the past 12 months and that 67 per cent of Albertan households reported having a member who had used a public library in the past 12 months.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Learning from the sinking of the unsinkable ship One hundred years ago an unsinkable ship sank with great loss of life. The story has had much television coverage this past week and I think it gives us cause to contemplate the horrific effects of overconfidence in technical advances and the high cost of ignoring warnings of peril. In 1912, the British passenger liner, the Titanic, was the largest ship afloat. It was the ultimate in comfort, luxury and opulence. It was deemed to have state-of-the-art advanced safety features, including sixteen watertight compartments and remotely operated watertight doors – making it unsinkable, they thought. Even years before construction of the Titanic, the seaman who would become her captain had said, “I cannot imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that.” Exactly one hundred years ago today, on April 10, 1912, the Titanic embarked on her maiden voyage to cross the Atlantic from Southampton, England, to New York, USA, in six days. On the fifth day out, the unthinkable happened. The luxurious liner collided with an iceberg south of Newfoundland, five of its sixteen watertight compartments were ripped open and the unsinkable Titanic sank within less than three hours, taking with it 1,514 passengers, mostly men. Of the 2,224 passengers, only 710 survived, mostly women and children (because of a “women and children first” protocol). It was one of the deadliest peacetime disasters in history. The world was shocked, but that turned to anger when investigation revealed there had been many regulatory and operational failures. The Titanic carried enough life boats for only one-third of the passengers and, when used, the life boats were only partially filled and crewed. The captain had ignored seven iceberg warnings from his crew and other ships in the area; and, he had steamed into a danger zone at a speed too high for the circumstances. It was believed that the ship’s owner, because of the highly competitive Atlantic passenger market, pressured the captain to maintain the speed that could achieve the record-breaking target of crossing the Atlantic in six days. Findings revealed that the three million rivets in the Titantic had been made of substandard iron so were sheared in the collision. The architect was blamed for having made the watertight compartments too small so as to have more space for first class passenger accommodation. In the end, both British and American inquiries agreed that most at fault for loss of life was the captain of a second ship in the area who had stopped for the night because of the icebergs, and had warned the Titanic’s captain of the imminent danger. He then turned off his radio and went to bed. Had his radio been manned, the distress calls from the Titanic would have been heard in time to have saved all on board. The highly dramatic as well as traumatic Titanic incident makes us ask if we learned anything from it. In our present information and knowledge age, we seem to be mesmerized by our rapid advances in technology and our growing dependence on it. Have we turned off our listening and observation devices and gone to sleep? Are we still ignoring warnings, taking short cuts? One hundred years ago, we thought we had unsinkable ships. We didn’t; not then; we still don’t. Ships, whether oil tankers or cruise ships, still leak and/or sink when they collide with ice or rocks. We still, and always will, need watchful human beings of integrity providing the intelligence to see risks and avoid, insofar as possible, the occurrence of disaster. Let’s not become paralyzingly dependent on mechanical intelligence. Spellcheck doesn’t distinguish between meanings of words like site, cite and sight. A calculator doesn’t know if the operator has put the decimal in the correct place. Autopilots don’t know if the program entered is accurate; they just fly the course. Recent news stories pertaining to major structural deficiencies in apartment and condominium complexes point to the need for a critical examination of the causes. Is it because of literacy and numeracy incompetency of the human brain because we have let ourselves become too reliant on mechanical brains? Or because we knowingly cut corners on safety measures and ignore warnings?

There is a lot of misinformation out there in an attempt to make the Wildrose Alliance Party out to be a huge monster. I heard that the MSI, (Municipal Sustainability Initiative) fund would be abolished if the Wildrose Alliance party got into power. This could mean the loss of jobs in the smaller towns and in the cites due to a lack of funding. These attacks really make me angry and I feel that I must defend the party that I have been a member of since 2008. I research everything that I hear from the public and I make sure that the party that I am supporting is in no way going against what I believe. I believe in small government and in a government who watches their cheque book just as carefully as I do at home. To make it clear what the MSI fund is I will spell it out.

Since 2007, municipalities have been allocated a total of $290 million in MSI operating to meet the demands of growth, address local infrastructure and enhance sustainability. To receive MSI operating funding, a single spending plan has to be approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs. The spending plan must reflect all eligible expenses that include those related to planning activities, capacity building, municipal services and assistance to non-profit organizations and must be for the purpose of providing good government, providing services, maintaining facilities or other things that are necessary or desirable for all or parts of the municipality or to develop and maintain safe and viable communities. I have read the Wildrose policies inside and out. There is no hint that they plan on abolishing the MSI. It would be rather stupid for any party to get rid of the fund in my opinion. Infrastructure is an important part of budget planning. We must have a strong infrastructure in place to keep this province healthy. This government has mismanaged the manner in which infrastructure dollars are allocated. Billions have been spent on faculties that the government cannot afford to staff. Albertans need to get the infrastructure that we as a province can afford. Local communities, not provincial bureaucracy are the best position to determine

where local infrastructure dollars should be spent. The Wildrose Alliance party believes in making MLAs responsible. If you vote in a Wildrose Alliance Party, the party will vote in a law that will make the MLA responsible if he or she did not please the majority of his or her riding. The MLAs will be required to vote accordingly to what the majority of his or her riding desires and not on the orders of the party. The voters will then be the boss and not the leader of the party. Know the facts about what every party believes. Then make your choice on the facts and not by what others in other parties say about the ones they are hoping to defeat on election day. Lorne W.P. Vanderwoude Camrose Dog waste

Camrose now has a resident (teeming) canine (dog) population of over 1,000 (licenced). This is evident in dog wastes and little plastic packages of dog waste quite common in our city's by-ways. Some yards are quagmires. We are not allowed to keep a hen or two for a breakfast egg. I like bantam chickens. My preference would be to have a hive of bees in my back yard. Productive those – honey – not smelly wastes. Tony Peddie Camrose

Grateful Grannies raise $46,000 Pat Mader Mundel

The Camrose and Area Grateful Grannies group had much to celebrate recently at their second birthday. In the two years since the group began, they have raised close to $46,000 for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Fundraising initiatives often grow out of a personal “dare” to put a new idea into action. Meet Grateful Granny member Edythe Schneider, whose fundraising idea started with her long-time interest in card-making. She designed, made and sold 250 angel cards to support African grandmothers raising their orphaned grandchildren. When Edythe could no longer keep up with the demand for her cards, she gathered a small team of grannies to assist her. To date, close to 600 cards have been made and sold. When a blizzard this winter blew into the Dried Meat Lake area where Edythe lives, one of the card-making sessions at her home unexpectedly turned into a pyjama party. She fondly recalls, “The weather was too bad for the group to safely return to Camrose. I scrambled to get enough pyjamas and toothbrushes for everyone to stay overnight. Our evening was full of laughter.” In talking about her volunteer work for the Grateful Gran-

Edythe Schneider with some AIDS angels

nies, Edythe explained, “For a number of years I have been looking for an organization that I could help, or do something for, by working from my home. The Grateful Grannies group is perfect in every way.” As Edythe’s cards have continued to sell, she has added a new creative challenge to the

mix: working with wood. She said, “My husband gave me the initial instructions to use a scroll saw and an engraving dremel and from there it was lots of trial and practice.” With Edythe’s new skill set, she has designed and made wood ornaments, fridge magnets, and larger wooden figurines, as well as hand-embroidered cards, each showing an African grandmother holding her grandchild. In addition, the Grateful Grannies sell colourful, hand-made angels at their events – 1,100 of them so far and counting! A local store, Quilting from the Heart, also kindly sells these AIDS angels on behalf of the group. Many creative fundraising initiatives have been carried out by Grannies in the past two years. For example, cookies, jewelry and garden transplants have been sold. Concerts, and dinner and garden parties have been held – often in the coziness of members’ homes. In December, the group hosted a Christmas Market in the historic Bailey Theatre. If you are interested in buying their cards or other items – or having the Grateful Grannies sell their hand-made crafts at your event, please contact Margaret at 780-672-7033 or Edythe at 855-2035. Close to 250 Granny organizations across Canada support turning the tide on the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Cardigans perfect for spring evenings The most common style question is what to wear on cool spring evenings without compromising style. Many of us resort to the bad habit of hiding in a big sweater that completely masks our beautifully planned outfit. This year we’ve been offered an alternative: the loose lightweight cardigan, which has taken the fashion scene by storm. These little sweaters are, for the most part, totally devoid of buttons, which means wearing the cardigans open. They are mostly available in warm, light,

and natural tones, perfect for an evening on a restaurant patio. A wide range of cuts is available, but the most fashionable one this season is the bat-style jacket. You’re probably already aware of this trend after seeing it in stores last winter. This cardigan can be recognized by its wide sleeves, attached from wrist to hip. It’s a cut that is perfect for all types of figures; the waistline is hinted at but never shown. Long or short, the cardigan can be asymmetric or straight. Leave the ends to float in the

breeze. Create a vacation theme by wearing one with shorts, and you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to the sea coast. For a chic happy hour, arrange a long necklace of pearly shells around your neck, and you’ll be all set. A cardigan is perfect over a little summer dress or paired with jeans. Remember, the cardigan is the star of versatile clothing this season. Try one and you’ll see how it can breathe new life into some of those items in your wardrobe that you were just about ready to abandon.

Business casual is the standard for workplace In today's economic climate, there are more job applicants than there are jobs. Landing or keeping a job with so much stiff competition means employees must take the necessary steps to ensure they're a viable part of the company. Dressing the part may seem inconsequential, but it can say much about how seriously you take your work. A business casual dress code is standard across much of the white-collar business world. It has supplanted formal attire, sometimes called international standard business attire, in most companies. Roughly 45 percent of employees arrive to work in business casual clothing. Still, many are not quite sure what constitutes business casual wear. Business casual clothing is neat, professional and classic. Although not a uniform, this type of attire helps to keep workers uniformly dressed in tailored and comfortable clothing. For men and women, khaki or dark-colored slacks are customary; women may choose to wear conservative skirts that are not too short. Pressed, long-sleeved, buttoned solid shirts are safe bets for both men and women. Short sleeves are customary during the warmer weather. Some companies allow collared polo shirts or golf Ts. Informal dresses for women and sweaters are also acceptable. Women should avoid baring too much cleavage, which can be viewed as sexually forward. With both genders, clothing should fit well but not be too tight or suggestive. Depending on the organiza-

tion, shoes should be closed-toe and modest. Many companies institute "casual Friday" attire, which is a variation on business casual by allowing jeans or sneakers to be worn. However, even on casual days, most companies frown upon wrinkled, ripped, too trendy, or revealing types of jeans. Shorts are often frowned upon as well. If women will be wearing dresses, spaghetti straps should be avoided in favor of thicker tank top straps or capped sleeves in warmer weather. Flip-flops and other flimsy sandals also should be reconsidered. In terms of accessories and jewelry, less is often more when complementing business casual attire. Avoid flashy items or pieces that may distract or inspire envy. The work environment is not a fashion runway, and dressing to stand out could make others feel intimidated. Not all companies employ the same rules and regulations concerning wardrobe. For those who are new to a company, it's best to stick with conservative business casual basics and then observe what others are wearing. Keep in mind that attire worn by supervisors or business owners may not be what employees are allowed to wear. Just because the CEO is donning jeans and a T-shirt every day doesn't mean it is acceptable for you. When in doubt, ask human resources or a personnel director if there are attire guidelines. Fellow employees whom you trust can also lend advice. Here are some other tips when shopping for business casual. Continued on page 13

* Avoid large patterns because they are memorable, and these items will not be able to be worn frequently without risking the chance of someone recalling the outfit. * Invest in some blue, black, brown and tan pants and/or skirts. These basics can be worn with many different colored shirts and blouses.

* A cardigan or blazer can instantly dress up a business casual outfit for a client meeting. * Gentlemen can stash a basic tie in their desk drawers to use should an impromptu meeting take place and more formal attire is required. * Avoid overly pungent perfumes or colognes around the office. * Companies may have poli-

cies on piercings or visible tattoos. When in doubt, take it out or cover up. Men may not want to wear earrings. * Facial hair and hairstyles should be kept well-groomed. It is always a safer bet to err on the side of conservative in any business environment unless you definitely know their wardrobe policies.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Strome Telecommunication Tower ATCO Electric is planning to replace the existing Strome telecommunications tower which is located in NE 25-44-16 W4M. The tower site is directly south of Highway 13 and east of the Town of Daysland, within Flagstaff County. The new tower will be a 111 meter (m) tall steel lattice structure supported by guy wires.

Pastoral Care Conference to be held at Norsemen Inn April 16 and 17 By Dan Jensen

Faith and Aging – Thriving At Any Age will be the theme of the Alberta Pastoral Care Association's 44th annual conference at the Norsemen Inn, April 16 and 17. "We're anticipating in the neighbourhood of 100 registrants, which is a little more than normal," said Rev. Norman Lentz, chaplain at The Bethany Group. Keynote speaker for the conference will be Dr. Nancy Kehoe, department of psychiatry, Cambridge Health Alliance, Harvard Medical School.

A pioneer in the field of mental health, she is best known for her ground-breaking work in addressing the spiritual needs of those with mental illness. She has been widely acclaimed through her conference presentations across the United States and in Canada, where she is known for her "common touch" and for her sharing of life stories. "Dr. Kehoe is passionately committed to the role of spiritual health through all the stages of life," states the conference brochure.

The conference will also feature presentations by Richard Duncan, RPN, on relationships as the key to longer life, Randal Nickel on radical hospitality, and Suzette Bremault-Phillips, OT, Ph.D., on finding meaning and purpose when confronted with health issues. Nickel, who is executive director of the Camrose Open Door Association, an organization that provides a range of services to youth at risk, completed a M.Ed. specializing in workplace and adult learning, and enjoys working to create a

culture of learning. He will show in his presentation that we need to be radically hospitable to gain trust and then look to encourage growth and change. Bremault-Phillips will outline mental, spiritual and physical challenges that arise when health diminishes, and ways to support individuals as they discover and reframe their life's meaning and purpose amidst new-found limitations. Rev. Lentz feels the theme of the conference should appeal to a wide audience. "Whether people recognize

spiritual issues or not, it is an element that is operative in our lives." The Alberta Pastoral Care Association, through education, promotion, and training of caregivers, provides for the spiritual well-being, support and visitation of persons in need. It is an organization made up of clergy and laity who feel a calling from God to go out to minister to God's people, especially in times of illness and special need. The conference is being held in conjunction with The Bethany Group's 90th anniversary.

Relentless control and crop safety: Best of both worlds With EVEREST® 2.0, no grower has to sacrifice yield to crop injury in order to control weeds in wheat. EVEREST 2.0 Herbicide, the next generation in weed control has advanced safener technology built in to provide peace of mind while delivering relentless control of green foxtail, wild oats and key broadleaf weeds.

Flush after flush™ control leads to better yields In University of Saskatchewan field trials over the past two years, researchers found that even with some very wet conditions, EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush™ control of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow without adverse effects, thanks to the super selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of spring and durum wheat.

“We like that EVEREST 2.0 gives customers a wide application window that lets you spray at your earliest convenience, regardless of weather conditions,” says Darrell Helgeland of Andrukow Group Solutions Inc. “Spraying early provides the best weed control, and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has a best chance to become established and reach its top potential yield. And at the same time, if the rains come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 is still safe to apply.”

Best-in-class control of Group 1 resistant grassy weeds More and more, spring wheat growers in Western Canada are plagued with hard-to-kill grassy weeds. As a Group 2 herbicide, EVEREST 2.0 enhances the options for growers struggling with Group 1-resistant wild oats and green foxtail.

Superior formulation and convenience “EVEREST 2.0 is an advanced, highly concentrated liquid formulation,” says Craig Brekkas, Herbicide Marketing Manager, Western Canada for Arysta LifeScience. “It’s a user-friendly, no-hassle product that wheat growers can rely on, with exceptional convenience and flexibility.” One 2-litre bottle will treat 80-100 acres for wild oats and green foxtail. As well, the high-quality liquid formula with safener technology makes it compatible with multiple tankmix partners. For more information on EVEREST 2.0 visit Andrukow Group Solutions or call 1-866-761-9397

The school is able to accommodate me and work around my busy schedule by letting me work at my own pace.” - Marta H.

“In September 2006, I started my first class of Cosmetology at Camrose Composite High School, and continued until I graduated in 2009 with approximately 20 modules completed. I chose Marvel College to pursue my career in Hairstyling. To my surprise, I was credited with every single course I took at CCHS! That meant that I was put in the fast track program which cost less, and I graduated in February instead of June! I highly recommend the CCHS program.” - Chelsey P.

Camrose does its part in saving energy Camrose residents did their part in the effort to conserve energy on Earth Hour last Wednesday. Data compiled by FortisAlberta showed that residents consumed 822 fewer kilowatt hours of electricity during Earth Hour (8:30 to 9:30 p.m.) than they did during the same hours March 24 when the temperature was 8.2 degrees colder. "This is the equivalent of powering 13,700 sixty-watt light bulbs or 913 homes for one hour," said FortisAlberta communications advisor Kevin Haslbeck. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encour-

age businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. "It's about simple changes." said FortisAlberta. "Collectively they can make a difference." Camrose residents and businesses can improve their energy efficiency by: turning off their lights when they leave home; replacing conventional lights with LED lights which are sixty times more energy efficient; using reading lights when they need a small amount of light instead of overhead lights for the entire room; unplugging phone

The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is pleased to announce that it is part of a cross Canada tour of the Crystal Journey, performed by David Hickey www. crystaljourney.ca on Sunday, April 15, at 7:30. Cost is $25. The tour will begin on April 6 in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and end in Regina on May 29. Other provinces will include Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia with a total of 35 shows. David says that “with over 10 years' experience and 1,000 performances to date, Crystal Journey will expand yet again to new musical heights.” He states that audiences can expect two 40- to 50-minute sets. His usual setup includes 15 to 20 Quartz Crystal Bowls, eight to 10 Paiste Planet Gongs, a Vibraphone and a Santoor. Nothing is amplified, prerecorded or rehearsed. Each set and performance is sonically pure and unique. Planet Gongs are tuned to the natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun and Planets. All of these gongs resonate in harmony with the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the Music of the Spheres, which was first documented by Pythagoras in the sixth Century B.C. Each planet gong contributes a vital pitch to the total harmonic resonance of our solar system. He also states and I can attest that a Crystal Journey concert is like no other musical experience on earth. The combination of all these unique and ancient instruments provides the listener a chance to journey with the sounds to the outer reaches of our minds and universe. Crystal Journey has dedicated its intention for the music to help raise awareness to our environment and such social causes as Tibet and Burma, raising funds for these and various other charities. Crystal Journey also works with cancer support groups such as Well Spring Calgary and SEVA Canada, a Vancouver based charitable organization that fights blindness and restores sight in nine countries. The intent of the performance is to create expansive and improvised music, to awaken consciousness and to provide a cosmic musical journey into the Unknown. David’s musical inspirations are Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead, John Lennon, George Harrison, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Miles Davis and Frederick Chopin to name a few. Anyone wishing to attend should call Jane at 780-6729949 in advance as space will be limited.

The song became an anthem of the Italian people as it expressed their longing for political independence at the time. Two unique works featured are Canadian R. Murray Schafer’s Gamelan – based on a Balinese / Javanese pentatonic scale, with each note of the scale being sung to a different syllable; and Ernest Toch’s Geographical Fugue – a spoken fugue using unusual names of geographical locations. The concert gets a bit of

local flavour with Standing on Holy Ground – a contemporary spiritual written by Judy and Marc Hafso, formerly of Camrose, and Dennis Rusinak of Wetaskiwin who joins the choir on his clarinet for a jazzy arrangement of a traditional spiritual. Contemporary vocal jazz is represented in The Manhatten Transfer arrangement of A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square and Greg Jasperse’s wordless New York VoiceDance. This delightful and inspiring concert takes place at Messiah Lutheran Church (4810-50 Street, Camrose), on Saturday, April 14, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or in advance from Candler Art Gallery.

Laura Gillespie

Rosebud School of the Arts student Laura Gillespie will take centre stage in the Arthur Miller classic The Crucible when it is performed on the Rosebud Studio stage April 13 to 28. As an acting student in the second year of RSA's mentorship programme, this is not Laura's first time on stage. She has also appeared as the stage manager in Camrose Composite High's 2007 production of Our Town, and also in Jake and the Kid and The Gifts of the Magi with Rosebud Theatre. Laura says about her character, Judge Danforth: "My favourite aspect is the power. I've never been in a position of power before, in real life or on the stage. Let me tell you, it is different than authority. In my first scene the others are in the middle of an argument but when I step on stage everybody just shuts up and takes a step backwards. It's been a lot of fun." The Crucible, opening Friday, April 13, portrays the riveting story of the Salem witchhunts in 1692. With the murmurings of witchcraft in neighbouring towns, it doesn't take much to turn a peaceful farming community into a frenzy of accusation and panic. Will the tension between fear and trust rip apart the small town of Salem? Arthur Miller's classic tale follows the turmoil of intolerance surrounding the accusations of the young Abigail Wiliams (Alixandra Cowman) as she manipulates an entire community for her own gain. The innocent will hang and blood will be spilt for "now the crazy little children are jangling the keys to the kingdom!" Is no one safe from the accuser's finger? Head of education at RSA and director of The Crucible, Paul F. Muir, says, "I'm excited for our students to be telling this story, which has a fabulous script and many meaty roles that actors can really sink their teeth into.

Showtime is 4:30 p.m., Thursday to Saturday. For tickets call 1-800-267-7553.

AMAInsurance.ca 1-800-615-5897

The U18 girls' Inferno soccer team completed a strong indoor season with provincials in Calgary on March 16 to 18. Provincial competitions bring the best of many divisions together for an aggressive weekend of soccer. The Inferno failed to make the medal round even though they didn’t lose a game. With a strong fifth place finish many of the girls completed their indoor soccer careers on a successful note. As summer soccer starts in a few weeks, the girls will rest and refocus to continue their winning ways on the grass fields.

Battle River School Division trustee Doug Bowie (left) and superintendent Dr. Larry Payne welcomed Rong Qin (CiCi) to Chester Ronning School. By Dan Jensen

Renmin Primary School in Chongqing, China, and Chester Ronning School, in Camrose, have begun to expand their twinning relationship. Renmin Primary School English instructor Rong Qin (also known as CiCi) will be spending the next year at Chester Ronning and a few other schools throughout Battle River School Division teaching students about Chinese culture, language, music and art. She will also help Chester Ronning School to communicate and share with the staff and students at her school in China. She arrived in Camrose March 9. "I am very pleased to be here," said CiCi. "I'm looking forward to an exciting year." The Renmin Primary School and Chester Ronning School twinning agreement was formed out of the two schools' association with the latter's namesake, a well-known Canadian ambassador and former Camrose Lutheran College president, who was born in China and lived in Chongqing in the 1940s. The relationship grew when Battle River School Division superintendent Dr. Larry Payne went to China in 2009, where he met with Chester Ronning's adopted grandson, Peter Liao. "Peter, who is of course very interested in the Chester Ronning story, connected him to Renmin Primary School, which is CiCi's school," said Chester Ronning principal Dan Cole. Hanban, the educational wing of the Chinese govern-

ment, is paying for CiCi's teaching expenses in honour of Chester Ronning and the twinning relationship, while Battle River School Division is paying her expenses while she is living with her host, Rhonda Anderson and her family. CiCi spent much time and effort decorating her classroom at Chester Ronning with pictures of China, as well as various facts and artwork she brought from her students back in Chongqing. She speaks fluent English, so is able to communicate well with her pupils. "Her English is so good," said Anderson. "She's been asked several times where she learned to speak English so well." CiCi learned English in the University in Chongqing and since arriving in Camrose has acquired a few new phrases and sentences. "I am learning gradually and I know I will learn more the longer I am here," she said. CiCi's class sizes at Chester Ronning are smaller than they are at Renmin Primary School, which has a total student/teacher population of more than 5,000. "We have one teacher for every 45 students and different teachers for every subject," she said. Renmin Primary School's day starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. After teachers and students eat lunch together, they all settle down for a nap for one hour. Students receive a twomonth break in the summer, the same as here, as well as a one-month break to celebrate the Chinese New Year in JanuaryFebruary.

"Back home some students are busy," said CiCi. "They will learn a lot of subjects and they need to practice." Based on everything she has seen so far, CiCi feels the students at Chester Ronning School are very happy. "I think they have more time to do what they enjoy doing," she said. CiCi doesn't mind the cold winter temperatures or the snow, and has enjoyed getting out for walks with new friends and has attended some hockey games that prior to arriving in Canada she had only seen on T.V. "It is colder than it is in Chongqing, where the lowest temperature in the winter is about one or two degrees," she said. "If you want to see the snow, you have to go to the mountains." Summer temperatures in Chongqing can rise to plus 43. "She told me that when the temperatures get that high the students stay at home." said Anderson. "It's the opposite of what we have here, when snow days force the cancellation of school." "We have a name for our city," said CiCi. "It is called Hot City of China." Another thing for which Chongqing is known is its spicy foods. "We have a dish called hot pot that everyone likes," said CiCi. One of the misconceptions about China that many Canadians have, said CiCi, is that Chinese citizens are always riding bikes. Continued on page 31

Mary Dorothea Weir (nee Hughes)

Milton Edward Makarowski

Kathleen “Sheila” Emmott-Bouillon

April 1, 1926 – April 1, 2012 Mary Weir died peacefully in hospital Sunday morning after suffering a stroke at home in Camrose on Saturday night. Mary grew up on a farm near Vegreville, the daughter of Daniel and Dorothea Hughes (nee Whittaker), and sister to George and Hilliard. She moved to Edmonton to study nursing at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, R.N. Class of 1948-1. After graduation, she worked in Belleville, Ontario with classmates for a short time, but returned to work at the Royal Alex, where she met her husband-tobe, Dr. J. R. (Ramsay) Weir. They married in 1955, and moved to Camrose in 1960. Mary leaves behind five children Elizabeth, Margaret, Jim, Ian and Barbara; their spouses Joe, Bill, Marie, Brenda and Brent; and 14 grandchildren Michael, Patrick, Ian and Mark Miller, John, David and Mary Jean Andreassen, Heather and Thomas Weir, Ben, Laura and Andrew Weir, and Liam and Brennan Shepherd. Mary is also survived by her brother George Hughes (Doreen), of Edmonton; their children Brent, Brian and Karen and families; her sister-in-law Beth Toor of Middlebury, Vermont and her children Helen, John, and Will and families; her sister-in-law Sharon Wansbrough, of Stony Plain; and extended family and friends. Mary was predeceased by her husband Ramsay in 2007; her parents Daniel and Dorothea Hughes; her brother Hilliard Hughes; her niece Elizabeth Weir; her grandson Anthony Weir; and brothers-in-law Herb Toor and John Weir. Mary was an active member of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Camrose, where she made many good friends. She was a lifetime member of the A.C.W., and a leader of the Junior Auxiliary and Brownies, where she particularly liked singing with the girls. She enjoyed getting together with her neighborhood friends for coffee, bridge, and bowling, in years gone by. She had fond memories of her years at the Royal Alex, and enjoyed many class reunions over the years. Mary was a very supportive wife, mother, and grandmother, and put a lot of miles on her Volkswagon Beetle (and a few other vehicles) getting kids and grandkids to music lessons, clubs and sporting activities. She spent many evenings cheering on their efforts. The Weir family wishes to thank the Camrose Ambulance Service, and St. Mary’s Hospital Emergency and Palliative Care Staff for their care. Thanks also to the staff and residents at Deer Meadows for their friendship and support over the last 14 months. A funeral service was held at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church (4713-50 Street, Camrose), at 2:00 p.m., on Saturday, April 7, 2012 with Rev. Jacques Vaillancourt officiating. Burial of cremated remains in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose followed. If desired, donations in Mary’s name may be made to St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Camrose, or to a charity of one’s choice.

On August 11, 1942, northeast of Daysland, Milton was born to Steve and Eva Makarowski. After surviving cancer for three-and-a-half years, he passed away on March 30, 2012. Milton’s education began at Willow School and concluded at Strome during the ninth grade. His calling was to work, and he made that his life’s goal. Whether working as a construction worker or dedicating his life to the farm, Milton worked hard and put a healthy amount of pride into any project. In 1963, Milton married Celine (Schechtel) of Denzil, Saskatchewan. They were blessed with two daughters: Michelle, born in 1966, and Dawn, born in 1974. He purchased a farm in 1972 near his parents. While farming, he worked at Camrose Steel Plant. Eventually, he focused his attention on farming full-time along with Celine, until their retirement to Daysland in the summer of 2011. Outdoor activities consumed much of Milton’s spare time. He also loved to converse with both young and old, acquaintances, and strangers; with that, everyone he encountered became a friend. Left to cherish his memory are his devoted wife Celine; daughters Michelle Skinner and her children Wesley and Morgan, and Dawn (Kyle Wilson); his siblings Lawrence, Jean (George) Gabruck, Irene (Ervin) Howrish and Doris (Ken) Miciak. Milton will be welcomed home by his parents; sisters-in-law Audrey and Gwen; brother-in-law Ed; and his parents-in-law Betty and Emmanuel. Your prayers, kind words of comfort and the support provided throughout Milton’s illness are appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. from Our Lady of The Prairies Roman Catholic Church Daysland with Rev. Leon Kler as celebrant. Interment followed in Daysland Cemetery. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to St. Mary’s Hospital Palliative Care, The Cross Cancer Institute or the charity of one’s choice.

Sheila was born in Mannville, Alberta to Garfield and Elsie Coultman on April 13, 1932. She passed away suddenly on April 3, 2012. Sheila attended Orbindale Country School until Grade 9 and continued her education in Irma, Alberta. Sheila started playing the piano in her family orchestra when she was just 15, and continued playing almost to the day she died. Her music was always a joy for her and for her many fans throughout the community who were entertained by her enthusiasm for dance music. She married Clifford Emmott on April 15, 1950 in Edmonton, Alberta. She and Clifford worked hard on the Emmott homestead near Mannville, raising their five children, growing a variety of grain crops, and raising beef and dairy cattle, pigs, chickens and turkeys. They left the family farm in 1970 and moved to Camrose where Sheila became involved in a new career by applying her skills as a caregiver and therapist. Known for her warm and friendly hospitality, Sheila’s table always had room for one more. She loved to prepare good food for her family, especially her trademark breads, pies – especially raspberry – and her famous cinnamon buns. Sheila is survived by her second husband Gerry; her children Garry, Lyle (Carmen), Leanne (Ron) and Deana (Ed); twelve grandchildren; and nine greatgrandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Donna; her brother Lorne (Anne Marie); numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her parents; her husband Clifford; her son and daughterin-law Ian and Karen; and by three infant children. Funeral Services were held on Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 3:00 p.m., from Messiah Lutheran Church with Rev. Jim Appleby officiating. Inurnment will take place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose at a later date. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the charity of your choice. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

Ford Escape The coveted fuel economy leader

Dan Jensen The 2012 Ford Escape at Lamb Ford Sales is leading the way in fuel economy. Escape's 2.5 litre Duratec four cylinder engine delivers a remarkable 7.1 litres per 100 km highway and 10.1 litres per 100 km city when paired with the six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. It also supplies a spirited 171 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. Escape's Duratec V6 engine cranks out 240 horsepower and tows up to 1,588 kg when properly equipped. "It lets you tow with confidence thanks to trailer sway control," said Lamb Ford Sales sales manager Brett Read. "When trailer sway is detected it automatically reduces engine speed and selectively applies the brakes to help you maintain control of both the vehicle and the trailer." Escape's Easy Fuel capless fuel filter automatically shuts when you remove the fuel nozzle. "There's no messy cap to deal with or lose – just gas up and go," said Read. "It also helps reduce evaporate emissions." Naturally nimble The Ford Escape is naturally nimble thanks to a fully independent suspension and outstanding ground clearance. The intelligent AWD system automatically monitors traction 200 times per second and adjusts for torque distribution as required. "It's always on and always working," said Read. Standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control uses two gyroscopic sensors to help keep all four wheels firmly planted and enhance vehicle control in wet or slippery situations. Comforts body and mind Escape comfortably seats up to five passengers with ease. The seat cushions contain environmentallyfriendly soy-based foam that helps conserve limited resources and reduce CO2 emissions. Supple leather trim with heated front seats, plus gleaming chrome and black accents are standard on Escape Limited.

"No matter which model you choose, Escape is bound to be the perfect fit for your adventures," said Read. Escape's exclusive MyKey allows owners to program ignition keys with reminders to drive at appropriate speeds, keep the auxio volume low and more, including limiting the vehicle's top speed and muting the audio system until front safety belts are fastened. Active park assist uses electronic sensors to help you locate the perfect parallel parking spot. Then, you take your hands off the wheel and Escape steers itself into place. You simply follow system prompts to shift gears and control the brake and acceleration pedals. The vehicle can be parked in as little as 24 seconds. The Canadian Winter Package on Ford Escape includes leather-trimmed, heated front seqats, leathertrimmed steering wheel, and vinyl door-trim inserts. Versatile standards let you store all your "stuff" out of sight, or even store your bike inside. You can also add options to let more sunshine in, show off your style, or warm up your vehicle. Hands free calls and music The Ford Escape eliminates the need to search for your phone or media player. With voice-activated Ford SYNC, you just touch a button on the steering wheel and

say things like "Call Melissa" or "Play genre: Pop." Once paired, the system recognizes your phone and automatically transfers your contacts to the support voice calling. The voice-activated navigation system features a vibrant 6.5 inch LCD touch screen with interactive maps Matt McLeod you can zoom and scroll. Play Lamb Ford Sales DVDs while Escape is in Park or store nearly 10 gigs of your digital music. Sirius Satellite Radio comes with a six-month prepaid subscription. Surf up to 120 channels, including 100 per cent commercial-free music, plus the best sports, news, talk and entertainment – all across Canada. Keeping you safe The advanced Personal Safety System uses sophisticated sensors to optimize deployment of the dual-stage front airbags in certain frontal collisions. Front-seat side airbags deploy in certain side-impact collisions, while the Safety Canopy system increases protection with a rollover sensor and side-curtain airbags. Each standard sideview mirror features an integrated convex blind spot mirror that helps identify vehicles and objects nearby, so you can avoid them. So that you and your passengers can be easily located, Escape's SOS Post-Crash Alert System will automatically flash the hazard lights and sound the horn after an airbag has deployed or a safety belt pretensioner has activated in certain collisions. Ford SYNC with 911 Assist uses your paired mobile phone to call 911 in the event of a crash that results in airbag deployment or fuel pump shutoff. It can even give the operator an urgent message for you. Escape's basic warranty is three years or 60,000 km. The Powertrain Limited Warranty is five years or 100,000 km.

"It used to be that way but then it changed to motorcycles. Today most of the people drive cars." While she has already made three trips to Tim Hortons (another piece of Canadiana), CiCi was disappointed a couple of Sundays ago when she headed downtown to do some shopping to find all the stores closed and the streets basically deserted. "In Chongqing we have a population of 30 million people and the shops are always open," said CiCi. "In fact it is on the weekends that most of the people will go outside in my city." Cole said that Renmin Primary School in Chongqing is one of the top schools in China and has a strong reputation for excellence. "A lot of the parents want to send their children there", CiCi explained. Chester Ronning School is honoured and privileged to have CiCi as part of its family for the next year. “She has already made a big first impression on the staff and students," said Cole. More Power.

780.672.7231 A great way to kick-start your spring driving

4709-36 Street, Camrose, AB www.autoshoppe.ca

780-672-7231

(MS) -- With spring just around the corner, that familiar anticipation of warmer weather and long Sunday drives with the windows down has returned. After a long winter of cold temperatures and likely snowfall, getting outside and driving in the warm sum is a luxury drivers across the country have earned. But as enjoyable as that first Sunday drive can be, it can also prove disastrous for vehicle owners who don't prepare their cars or trucks before hitting the open road. Here are a few tips to drivers about to ready their ride for that first warm weather road trip of the season. * Give your car a fresh start. Many men, women and children feel rejuvenated once the warm air of spring finally arrives. Vehicle owners can give their cars and trucks a similar fresh start with a few simple changes to their vehicle maintenance routine. One way drivers can make a profound impact on their vehicles this season is to address the lubricants they use to keep their car running strong. Unbeknownst to many vehicle owners, conventional motor oils slow starting rpm while restricting oil flow to critical engine parts and increasing wear on bearings and rings. However, synthetic motor oils provide significant performance benefits over their conventional counterparts thanks in large part to their superior resistance to varnish and sludge development. That superior resistance enables engines to run cleaner with synthetics, providing better fuel economy for those long Sunday drives while offering more wear protection in the meantime. * Routinely check tire pressure. Poorly inflated tires are often a silent assassin. While nearly everyone can hear a clunky engine or notice smoke coming out from underneath a vehicle's hood, few people ever recognize

that their tires are poorly inflated. That's unfortunate, as poorly inflated tires force the engine to work harder, decreasing fuel efficiency and taxing the engine as a result. But keeping tires properly inflated is a snap. Simply consult your vehicle manual for recommended tire pressure, and keep the tires at the recommended level. Though it might not seem like much, drivers will instantly notice a difference. * Stick to your maintenance schedule. Drivers tend to drive more once the weather starts warming up. With no snow on the ground and warm air to fill up the car, a road trip is far more attractive in the warmer months than it is when winter is rearing its ugly head. Vehicle owners can keep their cars running strong this spring by strictly adhering to their vehicle maintenance schedule. This has even gotten easier in recent years, as many vehicle manufacturers are suggesting longer intervals between tuneups and oil changes, resulting in less trips to the mechanic. Sticking to the maintenance schedule can also make those Sunday drives more enjoyable. For example, synthetic motor oils can greatly improve a vehicle's performance by reducing friction and wear, making a vehicle more fun to drive while increasing its engine's life expectancy at the same time. * Give your car a good wash. Every vehicle owner wants their car to look good. But a car wash can not only benefit a car's appearance, it can also help boost its performance. Over the course of a typical winter, salt, slush, dirt, and grime tend to buildup the more a vehicle navigates its way through snow- or ice-covered roads. A thorough car wash can remove these unwanted deposits, while also clearing away break dust that can erode wheel surface.

Legal claims top prize in Small Town Saturday Night By Dan Jensen

They're going to get their wish. The town of Legal has been awarded the right to host its own mini Big Valley Jamboree concert Saturday, April 28, featuring country music stars Dean Brody, Aaron Lines, Samantha King, Duane Steele, Shane Chisholm and Tim Hus. The concert was the grand prize in a Small Town Saturday night contest put on by Panhandle Productions and Travel Alberta, which invited communities to submit two minute videos telling what makes their community special. "We received 53 videos from a broad cross section of Alberta towns," said Panhandle Productions producer Larry Werner. "We were hoping we would receive 10 or 12." Legal's entry featured residents hoisting a red cup and singing, "We want a party. Bring us a party."

Tourism Parks and Recreation Minister Jack Hayden presented a Small Town Saturday Night award to Legal town councillor Trina Jones at the Growing Rural Tourism banquet last week.

The community is known as a destination for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fishing and hiking.

The videos received more than 100,000 public votes from across Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan.

"There were many exceptionally high quality applications that showcased the tremendous community spirit and enthusiasm from rural Alberta," said Werner. "We had a great cross section of Alberta communities represented and I would like to thank everyone for participating. Your involvement turned this into a great community event." Legal town councillor Trina Jones said the town had fun producing the video and is now looking forward to show people what it has to offer. "It's going to be a lot of hard work but we are looking forward to everything that is coming." All proceeds from the Small Town Saturday Night Concert will go towards the Friends of Legal School Society to build the children of Legal a new playground. Tourism Parks and Recreation Minister Jack Hayden, who helped present the Small Town Saturday Night award

at the Growing Rural Tourism Conference April 3, expressed confidence that Legal would put on an excellent show. The minister also commended all the communities who participated in the contest. "The experience that you went through and the preparation you did is only going to make your area stronger." Travel Alberta Chief Executive Officer Bruce Okabe said the contest has shone a spotlight on Alberta's small communities and is sure to drive tourism to some lesser-known destinations around the province. He added that every Albertan is a beneficiary of the province's tourism economy. Legal was one of five finalists in the Small Town Saturday Night contest, along with Bashaw, Bonnyville, Devon and High River. The four runners-up received a $1,000 cheque from Travel Alberta to be donated to a charity of their choice.

Having a broken windshield is not only unsightly and a big inconvenience, it can also be illegal. That's because the crack reduces the efficacy of the window safety composition, meaning it may shatter in the event of an impact accident and cause extensive injuries. The crack also may impede a driver's ability to see the road clearly. It's important to note that liability car insurance typically doesn't cover a cracked windshield that occurs in a collision. Instead, drivers hoping to be covered need to have collision insurance on their vehicle. However, not all windshields crack in a car accident. Many are damaged in nonaccident related circumstances, whether this be a tree branch that falls on the car or a rock kicked up from the roadway. It's important to read an insurance policy thoroughly to be sure that nonaccident related cracks to the windshield will be covered. Even if the damage is covered, it may not be worth the expense of paying the insurance deductible and filing a claim, which may end up raising your rate in the long run. Many small nicks can be repaired easily with a kit purchased from an automotive supply store. Inexpensive and user-friendly, the instructions guide users through the process of sealing the crack and preventing it from spreading. If the crack is beyond the scope of a do-it-yourself fix, a windshield repair service that specializes in this type of work might be necessary. These companies use products that harden quickly and reglaze the windshield so that the crack may not even be noticeable afterward. Upon inspection, a mechanic or a windshield replacement company may determine that the crack is not something that can be mended. The entire windshield will have to be replaced at this point. In some cases the windshield can be removed and replaced in the same day. While there is no way to prevent a cracked windshield entirely, there are certain ways to reduce the risk. This includes avoiding running over any debris on the road that can be kicked back at the windshield.

Friesen honoured for 25 years of service to CMHA

Owners

Give your Dodge 4x4 some quality care Craig Martin presents a plaque to Betty Friesen, By Murray Green

Camrose resident Betty Friesen has dedicated the last 25 years to helping the Canadian Mental Health Association. She was rewarded for her efforts with a plaque, which was presented by president Craig Martin on March 27. "Thanks for joining us in recognizing a woman who is not only very special to CMHA, but is also the reason we exist in the community today. Betty has been here since the beginning. Truthfully speaking, she was here before the organization began," said Craig. In 1987, Betty initiated the development of a steering committee to look at opening a group home for individuals experiencing mental illness. This committee was successful in its mission and the group home opened in 1988, with six beds supporting individuals in need of solid and consistent mental health support. The group home existed under the umbrella of CMHA Red Deer and the members of the steering committee soon moved on to other roles after the opening of the group home. This left Betty as the sole board member at times, working towards building an organization that could meet the needs that she saw in our community. "Over the years, Betty has shown tremendous leadership and was able to bring on other caring individuals from the community. While many have come and gone, leaving their mark and helping the organization to grow, Betty has remained as a steady cornerstone," added Craig. "Our organization has since grown into its own regional office, a branch of the provincial CMHA. In addition, we have seen the development of a variety of programs and services; some of which have dissolved as a result of changes in funding priorities and others that have evolved with the changing needs of our community." Today CMHA offers six main programs with about 20 staff, supporting individuals experiencing mental illness, brain injuries, and developmental disabilities. It

is a well known and reputable agency within our community, and is dedicated to helping those in need, as well as increasing education and reducing the stigma around mental illness. "Betty, without you, none of this would be possible. We would like to thank you for your 25 years of hard work, perseverance, and dedication to mental health, our community, and our organization," continued Craig. "Your efforts, advocacy, and passion have had an immense impact on countless lives. You are truly an inspiration to us all and you give us hope that with determination and compassion, we can continue to create positive change on a political, social, and personal level." The president, on behalf of those affected by mental illness, the family and friends who support them, the community, and finally the Canadian Mental Health Association East Central Region, Craig presented the plaque, as a small token of gratitude to an ardent and tenacious woman who has helped to pave the way for a future of acceptance, support, and mental well-being. "Betty, words cannot capture our appreciation and respect. We are truly grateful for all you have, and will continue to bring to our organization and to the lives of the individual's we serve," said Craig. Musician David Thomas said "Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls." Craig replied, "Betty, I can only imagine that yours is illuminated with pages such as these." Betty said the 25 years have gone by so fast. "I wonder where the years have gone. But, when I look back at where this organization started, I know we have come a long, long way. Although I was there near the start, Colleen (Vennard, the executive director) has been the driving force. She has the knowledge and the push to make things happen. All of the staff has dedication and I'm so proud to be a part of it. I'm proud of everyone of you."

There are some who are unfamiliar about how and when to rotate the tires and the benefits this routine maintenance can provide. This also could be a factor in why people procrastinate on tire rotation. One may not realize that the front tires often bear the brunt of the work in vehicle operation.

of the front tires. Vehicles that are front-wheel-drive have front tires that supply the main motive power for the vehicle, according to Edmunds.com. The frequent use and requirements of the tires produces friction on the road, and eventually heat. The front tires wear more quickly than the rear tires. In order to extend the life of the tires, drivers must periodically rotate them.

Tire rotation essentially means moving the front tires to the rear and vice-versa. This means the front passenger side tire will be moved to the back passenger side position. The same thing will occur on the driver's side. There's a reason for this. Tires have unique wear patterns that are related to the suspension and the alignment.

Certain vehicles have tires of different sizes in the rear and front, which prevents front-toback rotation.

Tire rotation preserves balanced handling, traction and tire wear

that changes from the inside of the tire to the outside. Though these tires are rare, you can't rotate them at all. Tire rotation is advisable to preserve balanced handling, traction and even outer tire wear. But how often should it be done? Many tires should be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, even if they don't show signs of wear.

2012 TERRAIN

(MS) -- As the motor vehicle industry continues to evolve, the emphasis drivers and manufacturers place on safety continues to increase. But even though technological advancements have vastly improved driver safety, accidents still happen. One of the more concerning trends with regards to traffic

accidents is when they occur. In spite of the fact that there are five times as many motorists during the day, statistics indicate that one-third of all accidents and roughly half of all traffic fatalities occur at night. Though that might seem counterintuitive, this peculiarity can largely be traced to a driver's visual acuity, which is reduced 6.1L/100KM HWY 9.2L/100KM CITYW

PHOTO CLASSIFIED ADS

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Improve your vision for a clean and safer ride Continued from page 39

* Inspect and replace wiper blades when necessary. Similar to headlight bulbs, wiper blades are often overlooked when it comes to vehicle maintenance. But many motorists would be shocked to discover that industry experts recommend wiper blades be replaced at the change of each season or on three month intervals. That's because the longer a wiper blade is on the vehicle, the more brittle and ineffective it becomes, putting drivers and passengers at risk. Drivers can also purchase inexpensive treatments designed to make the rubber more pliable and extend the life of the wipers. In addition, when inspecting or replacing wiper blades, top off the windshield washer fluid as a precautionary measure. * Clean interior glass and mirrors. Another way to improve visibility is to clean interior glass to remove any film buildup that can reduce vision and create a hazy reflection from the sun. This is especially important for motorists who smoke in the car, as this film is typically thicker. When addressing interior glass, take the time to adjust all side and rearview mirrors properly to cover all of the views around the car, especially the blind spots.

2012 PEST AND WEED CONTROL The Parks Section of the Community Services Department is committed to environmentally responsible pest control practices. At various times throughout the year, the City of Camrose Community Services Department controls broadleaf and other weeds and insect pests depending on the genus, infestation, safety and conditions. Small mammalian pests, such as beavers and gophers, may also be controlled. Pest Management activities occur on properties such as parks, sports fields, golf course, CRE, boulevards, sidewalks, roadway buffers, water bodies and vacant city land. The Department is evaluating new systems and products to reduce pesticide usage where possible. Special care and attention regarding the impact on the park users is considered in all applications. For example, no spray treatment takes place on any site where wind speed exceeds 16 km/hr. All procedures and pesticides used meet the strict standards established by Health Canada and Alberta Environmental Protection and are considered safe for these types of applications. Treated areas are posted with yellow and black signs indicating the date and time of application, re-entry time, the pest controlled and pesticide used. Below is a schedule that approximates when our field crews will conduct these programs and the materials they will use. Control of weeds and tree pests in residential neighborhoods is provided on the bases of citizen’s request, the location and the pest or weed infestation levels and safety concerns.

Report from Parliament Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot Standing Up for Alberta

Many of you have heard Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s attempt to dismiss positive accounts of the economic benefits our oil sands are providing Canada. McGuinty says Canada's high "petro dollar" has hobbled exporters in his province. I say the global demand for oil and gas from Western Canada is not McGuinty’s problem. In fact, my Conservative Cabinet colleague, the Honourable Joe Oliver, Minister of Natural Resources, was one of the first to point out that the Ontario Premier ought not to ‘bite the hand that feeds him’. Minister Oliver reminds all of us that Canada has always been rich in natural resources and we have become a rich nation by exporting them. Since Confederation, exporting the vast majority of our resources to the U.S. has been a fruitful trade relationship for Canada. However, this is not a sustainable strategy because we need more foreign customers for our energy to continue to create jobs and economic growth in Canada going forward. Not to mention the federal tax revenues raised and sent to Ontario – which achieved ‘have-not’ status under Premier McGuinty’s command. Ontario should respect the fact that Canada’s resource sector is poised to lead the economic growth in our nation with over $500 billion in potential investment over the next decade. Much of this investment is to supply Asian markets. This investment, though, is not guaranteed. We are competing against energy exporting countries around the world. One of the largest impediments we face is the billions of dollars currently caught-up in Canada’s inefficient regulatory system that takes years upon years to make most decisions and up to nine years for others. For example, we’re currently in competition with Australia to supply energy to the emerging Asian market. The Australian regulatory system takes only 12 to 18 months to complete. There are hundreds of thousands of jobs at stake in Canada. These jobs will not just be in the resource sector, but in every sector from the service industry to the financial services sector – including those in Ontario. Successful energy exports will help bring jobs back to our manufacturing sector as every resource project requires manufacturing of equipment from pipes to trucks to steel beams and other infrastructure – some of it built in Ontario? Canadians want our government to ensure that we maintain and enhance our strong environmental safeguards. Our regulatory system must be fair, independent, consider different viewpoints that are based on science and the facts. Canada needs to be able to review the evidence dispassionately and then make a determination on energy export projects. Continued on page 47


The CAMROSE BOOSTER April 10, 2012

Report from Parliament Continued from page 46

There are close to 400,000 jobs in our oil sands that contribute an average of $22 billion a year to government revenues — to help pay for everything from education and health care to roads and clean energy. Estimates say that over the next 25 years there will be over 700,000 jobs and $3.3 trillion that will be contributed to Canada’s gross domestic product. Canada must prepare to provide the booming Asia-Pacific economies our oil, gas, metals and minerals – they are already asking – and we know the regulatory reforms we clearly need to make to ensure Canada’s future prosperity by, as always, exporting our natural resources. Pursuing Trade Opportunities

By the time you are reading this news column, the federal government’s budget – Economic Action Plan 2012 will have been unveiled. Our Conservative government was elected in the current uncertain global economy to stick with our lowtax plan for jobs and growth – a plan that has worked and is continuing to grow Canada’s economy, save existing jobs and create new jobs. I am confident that we will continue to work on improving the wellbeing of Canadians by securing the recovery, eliminating the deficit, investing in the key drivers of long-term economic growth and providing for the responsible spending of taxpayers’ dollars. Prime Minister Stephen Harper returned to Canada on Thursday, March 29, to hear Finance Minister, the Hon. Jim Flaherty, deliver the Budget Speech in the House of Commons. Our Prime Minister will have completed his six-day tour of Thailand, Japan and Korea in pursuit of increasing Canada’s business in the Asia-Pacific region. Prime Minister Harper and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda announced the formal launch of free trade negotiations. This would be a free trade agreement between Canada and the world's third-largest economy. It could increase our nation’s GDP between $3 and $9 billion. Canada’s bilateral trade last year with Japan amounted to almost $24 billion. Early this year I was dispatched by our government to accept an invitation by the Japanese government to spend eight days in Japan. I followed an agenda they prepared that included many meetings with top government officials, including the Ministers of Agriculture, Foreign Affairs and Public Safety. I visited Japan’s Agriculture & Livestock Industries Corporation; met with the Cochair of Japan’s “Canada Committee”; and, the President of the Japan Business Federation. I was taken on tours of numerous trading companies including Toyota, the Mitsubishi heavy machinery plant and the Advanced Scientific Technology

& Management Research Institute of Kyoto. I was alone on this mission. I knew that, for example, the Hon. Gerry Ritz, Canada’s Agriculture Minister, and the Hon. Ed Fast, Canada’s International Trade Minister had already been working closely with Japanese officials and taken the tour. The Japanese government is also inviting other Canadian MPs and Canadian business executives to take the tour and search for economic opportunities. You can imagine the countless times I use the words “Alberta beef” in my conversations with everyone I met. My report to our government declared that I was impressed with what I saw. Japan’s economy has been stagnant in the post-1980s era. Their forecasted economic growth since that time did not materialize. They are doing something about it

and they have judged that Canada is a most desirable trading partner. Our Prime Minister has responded to Japan’s offers by stating Canada’s openness to increasing our business ties with the Asia-Pacific region as a whole, including Japan. We will pursue talks to establish if there is business for Canadian firms and workers to secure that will deliver economic benefits to Canada. All successful free-trade agreements are signed only after we are certain there is a net benefit to Canada. Japan’s need for agriculture products means that there will be a net benefit right here in our riding of Crowfoot If you have any questions or concerns regarding this or previous columns, you may write me at 4945-50th Street, Camrose, Alberta, T4V 1P9, call 780-608-4600, toll-free 1-800665-4358, fax 780-608-4603 or e-mail sorenk1@parl.gc.ca.
