To Camrose Homes Tues. Thurs. This Week’s Flyers: *partial coverage

The Camrose Rotary Youth Centre is reminiscent of building projects from years gone by. Ron Grue, who has generously donated his time and talent to oversee the building from planning to completion, describes the impressive endeavour as an

“old-fashioned barn-raising style experience.” The $1/2 million dollar complex is being constructed through collaborative means. Volunteer spirit and ingenuity is playing a huge role. Community Enhancement money in the amount of $85,000 along with a $100,000 contribution from Rotary Club of Camrose and land and services plus a $150,000 pledge from City of Camrose is partially funding the building which will be used by a wide variety of Camrose youth groups, clubs and associations. The proverbial “icing on the cake” is the generosity of the corporate community and personal donations of time and skill which will see the building come to life. Businesses and dozens of To Rural Homes individual tradespeople have volunteered their time or are working far below their market with Booster value by pitching in to get the job done and on time! Some businesses are donating or ✔  subsidizing the cost of building components and materials.

Council meets at City hall for final time By Dan Jensen

City council has held its final meeting at the current City hall. Council approved a motion at its April 15 meeting to conduct committee of the whole, regular and special meetings at the Camrose County chambers, 3755-43 Avenue, effective May 6. Council also designated Mirror Lake Centre as the location of the City of Camrose municipal office, effective on the date of closure of the existing City hall. City manager Damian Herle told council that administration's intentions are that customer service and treasury operations will be effective at the Mirror Lake Centre location on May 21. "There may be one day or less that these City functions are closed to allow for the transition.

The administration is working to minimize business/customer impact." Herle said there are advantages to using County council chambers, including the fact that the chambers are set up and ready to go, including County and administration seating, a spacious public seating area, delegation presentation area, and audio video equipment. "A room off the council chambers is provided for use between committee meetings and regular council meetings, and there is additional storage space provided." The major disadvantage to the City of using other sites is the large set-up and take down time. "Over the course of the 2013 and 2014 construction,

this would be substantial man hours," said Herle. Herle said City council has been meeting at its current location for the last 50 years. Camrose village and town councils met for 40 years in the old town hall, which stood on the site now occupied by the federal building on 50 Avenue. When the site was sold to the federal government in 1954, council met for almost three years in the old Methodist church, which had been used by the town as a library and police headquarters. "The City had taken over the old post office building from the federal government but before it could be used as a city hall the federal building had to be completed and the new city hall completely renovated," said the

Camrose history book, A Light Into the Past. "It was not until 1957 that these new quarters were used as a City Hall." The City moved into the former Camrose County office building on 50 Avenue and 52 Street on June 7, 1963. "When it was recognized that these facilities were not entirely what the City wanted, it attempted to raise money by the issuance of a debenture, a bylaw that required public approval," said A Light Into the Past. "The public turned down the bylaw so the City of Camrose had to turn to other means to increase its office space. An addition to the building was started in December, 1973. "In the meantime," said the book, "council was forced to meet at the administration building

on the fairgrounds. When the addition was completed, renovations started immediately on the old County building to provide for council chambers and committee rooms. The entire structure was completed and opening exercises took place on Citizens' Day, May 14, 1975." The anticipated total cost for all work related to the construction of a new City Hall facility is $18,250,000, of which $1 million will come from reserves and $17,250,000 will come from the Municipal Sustainability Initiative grant program. City council has accepted a tender

of $13,447,740 plus GST from Bird Management Ltd. for the construction of the new City Hall facility and the demolition of the existing one.

Province provides funds for senior housing By Murray Green

Senior citizens across the province will be given more dignity during stays at lodges in the future. Albertans living in seniors’ lodges can expect modernizations and greater comfort through a $30.9 million investment from the provincial government. Sharing accommodations and washrooms with strangers has left many seniors uncomfortable in their own rooms. Maintenance and improvements of up to 172 seniors’ lodges, cottages and unique homes could benefit as many as 10,000 seniors. “These lodges are essential accommodations for seniors who wish to stay close to their families and neighbours as they age, especially those who live in rural Alberta,” said municipal affairs minister Doug Griffiths. “We are spending our dollars smarter by upgrading these older properties to ensure our seniors have safe, comfortable and affordable places to call home now and in the future.” Mr. Griffiths broke down the costs to each unit to determine the funding allocations. Each housing management body has been allocated $3,000 for every lodge, cottage and unique home unit it owns or manages as a one-time capital renewal investment. Upon approval of project proposals, housing management bodies can use the funds for items such as various building repairs and mechanical and plumbing upgrades; fire and safety upgrades; and kitchen, dining room and resident room expansions/renovations. “This funding announcement has highly energized our members to explore the options that will enhance the comfort of their residents,” said Doug Mills, president of the Alberta Senior Citizens’ Housing Association (ASCHA). “It’s a great start to the renewal of our aging lodges and cottages so that they can continue to provide person-centred housing that meets local community needs.” There are 153 lodges, 11 cottages and eight unique homes operating in Alberta with more than 10,000 living units eligible for support. Of these units, 60 per cent are owned by housing management bodies, and 40 per cent are owned by the Alberta Social Housing Corporation (ASHC). The ASHC owns the province’s portfolio of social housing and manages agreements associated with these buildings.

Council addresses needs of Social Development Committee By Dan Jensen

Mayor Marshall Chalmers will serve as City council representative at the May 6 meeting of the Social Development Committee. Mayor Chalmers volunteered to attend the meeting after council's April 15 review of a letter written by Social Development Committee chair Margaret Holliston which noted that due to the consistent absence of councillor Brandon Blatz and the inability of councillor John Howard to be present, the May 6 meeting is not likely to have a quorum. The letter also requested that the mayor and council of the City dismiss councillor Blatz and appoint another member of council to the committee to take his place.

Councillor Blatz attended four of eight Social Development Committee meetings in 2012, and has missed four out of four meetings thus far in 2013. Since the start of December he has attended three regular council meetings and three committee of the whole council meetings. Blatz informed Holliston by email at the end of January of his intention to resign from the committee. "He had, in an earlier email, noted that the regular meeting time did not suit his schedule," said Holliston. "Although we offered to re-schedule meetings to accommodate Mr. Blatz, he did not provide us with alternative dates when asked to do so, so we decided to keep meeting at the time that best suited the oth-

er SDC members. To date, councillor Blatz has yet to resign." The new Social Development Committee bylaw requires that one of two council representatives be present at meetings to secure a quorum. Holliston said the committee realizes that City councillors are very busy with committee responsibilities, and appreciate that no one is likely to welcome another assignment. She asked that if re-assignment proves impossible, council consider the appointment of another Social Development Committee representative to step in, in the absence of both councillors, and thus help secure a quorum. In an email to local media before council's April 15 meeting, councillor Blatz said he has

been struggling with a personal health issue since early December, which has ultimately led to his recent absence from council chambers and the meetings of the committees to which he has been appointed, including the Social Development Committee. "I am currently under the care of my medical specialist, who is working with me to remedy the health problem so that I am able to function regularly and fully return to my duties. I humbly ask and appreciate the patience and understanding of my fellow Camrosians during this trying time." Blatz further stated that while he disputes the assertion made in the letter presented to council that different scheduling options were offered and dis-

cussed, and takes serious issue with the tone of the author, he will resign from the social development committee. Blatz ended the email by stating he will not be seeking re-election in the 2013 municipal election. "It always has been and continues to be a great honour to serve the people of Camrose and I am deeply grateful to residents for having granted me such a privilege." Mayor Chalmers said City council will be deciding on the appropriate next steps to be taken with regard to having proper council representation at Social Development Committee meetings and other meetings at its May 6 meeting.

Charities often benefit significantly from the generosity of donors and volunteers. But the person providing the philanthropy also takes away something from the experience, and there actually may be measurable emotional advantages to being charitable. Helping others not only makes a person feel good, but it may also increase physical and emotional well-being. Several studies have indicated that being generous has profound effects on how a person thinks and feels. Psychologist Robert Ornstein and physician David Sobel, authors of Healthy Pleasures talk about a "helper's high." This is a sense of euphoria that volunteers experience when helping others. It can be described as a sense of vitality and a warm glow. It has been compared to a runner's high and may be attributed to a release of endorphins. Various studies have found that donors and volunteers gain the most from a charitable encounter. Here are a few more health benefits that may result from being altruistic: an activation of emotions that are key to good health; lower stress levels; longer periods of calm after the generous act; improved mood; and a potentially longer life span. There are many ways to give back and experience these physical and psychological benefits, including: sharing experiences at a school; volunteering at a hospital; volunteering at a national or local park; donating unused items, like clothes or cars; reading to children at a library; helping to care for animals at shelters; volunteering at a hospice and comforting those at the end of their lives; donating supplies to a new teacher; and becoming a companion to a senior citizen.

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

Find yourself in serving others! We find it almost meaningless to be told that in Canada there are 13.3 million people engaged in volunteering their time and talents – with no promise of personal gain – for the good of their neighbours, their communities, and even strangers that may live close to home or anywhere in the world. It’s hard to comprehend because we can’t imagine such a large number of people, nor can we imagine the collective impact of the work they do. To better visualize the effect of volunteerism, it helps to look at its impact on the quality of life in our own city and neighbouring Camrose County, both of which are paying tribute to volunteers during this week, National Volunteer Week, April 21 to 27. Let us take a moment to contemplate what we would not have if volunteers quit volunteering. Gone would be delivery of meals on wheels to persons who are unable to cook for themselves; gone would be volunteer coaches for minor sports; gone would be dozens of boards that provide cultural, social, and spiritual enhancements; gone would be service clubs and charitable societies whose efforts involve hard labour and monetary contributions to build playgrounds, parks and, for example, the youth centre that is now under construction by Camrose Rotary Club volunteers; without volunteers, we wouldn’t have Habitat for Humanity homes or ReStore. These examples are but a very few to illustrate what our community would lack were it not for volunteerism. Perhaps most underestimated and unrecognized is the value of the effort of many seniors who provide caregiving – often to both parents and grandchildren. This saves incalculable amounts of private and public dollars and is too often not fully appreciated. In the March 22 issue of the Edmonton Journal I read an article written by Bauni Mackay, president of the Seniors’ Association of Greater Edmonton (SAGE). She wrote that SAGE is “initiating a research project that will document the balance between the cost of aging and the financial and social contributions made by seniors. The project will be done in collaboration with University of Alberta researchers ... .” SAGE wants to know if seniors are giving back more than they take, contributing more than they receive, and instead of being a (perceived) generational liability are they in fact a significant economic and social asset that benefits all generations?” One thing we can see for ourselves is that volunteers seem to get much satisfaction from helping others and also tend to feel that they are simply doing what needs doing – nothing special. This week we toss the Booster Bouquet to the many, many folks who enhance our well-being by the willing performance of voluntary acts of kindness. We quote from James Cash Penny, (of J.C. Penny Corp.), to help us inspire our children to be volunteers. Penny asks, “How can we expect our children to know and experience the joy of giving unless we teach them that the greater pleasure in life lies in the art of giving rather than receiving?” To those in search of fulfillment: Mahandas Gandhi (former political leader in India) found that, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Letters are welcomed but please limit them to 500 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only name of writer and city or town will be printed. Letters to third parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit for length, clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Dear Editor:

As the Superintendent of Battle River School Division, I have been both delighted and dismayed by the attention being given to the issue of student assessment in recent days. I am delighted, because never before in my career have I witnessed such intense passion for education being expressed by parents and students. For an educator, this level of interest is cause for celebration. However, much as that passion is a good thing, I am dismayed that the attention and coverage has included a great deal of negative comment and misinformation, which appears to be overshadowing the reality of my school division’s assessment procedures. Please allow me to provide these facts: • The change to outcomebased assessment is not specific to BRSD. We are following the philosophy and direction of Inspiring Education.

• Every school division is charged with the responsibility of creating its own system for tracking and reporting student learning. BRSD’s system includes outcome-based recording and a strong focus on descriptive feedback. • The judgment of teachers is a critical part of the profession and all aspects of the process of teaching and learning, including the assessment and reporting of student progress. • We have heard that our school division is eliminating percentages at the high school level. This is not the case – percentages are an Alberta Education requirement. In addition to receiving a percentage mark at the end of a course, students will receive percentages on a midterm report card and at any other time, upon request. • We have heard a concern that high school students won’t receive “real” percentages or that the method of calculation is inaccurate. We know that the marks BRSD high school students receive will, in fact, be a more accurate reflection of their learning • Our assessment procedure was constructed with an expectation of students being accountable to provide evidence of their learning. • Not all high schools will implement AP 360 at the same time. Just like students in classrooms, school communities are at different stages of learning about and embracing this concept. The target for implementation is the

fall of 2014, but if a school and its community are not yet ready, they will certainly be given the time and assistance they need to prepare for implementation. • We have heard that noone likes this new system and it’s true that the school division has received negative feedback. But our school division has also received messages of support from parents, educational leaders, teachers and community members across the province of Alberta. There are many voices. Battle River School Division is committed to working with parents and community members. • Students expect and deserve the highest quality of education to ensure competitiveness in entering post-secondary institutions or the world of work. Students are receiving the same high quality education they are accustomed to, and as the school division learns and grows so does the caliber of student learning. The way we assess will provide more information to assist our aspiring youth to master the curriculum and be well prepared for whatever path they choose. At the heart of this discussion is the desire of both parents and educators to ensure that today’s students obtain the learning and skills they require to be successful citizens in tomorrow’s world. Battle River School Division remains committed to its vision of ensuring every student, every day, a success. Dr. Larry Payne Superintendent of Schools Battle River School Division

Bible game show has Camrose connection By Murray Green

Canadian comedian and popular game show host Jeff Foxworthy said "If you don't know your Bible, you don't have a prayer." That is definitely true in his latest game hit quiz show, The American Bible Challenge. The show started its second season in March after the program broke all records when it premiered last August on GSN, the Game Show Network, debuting as the cable network’s number one program of all time with 1.7 million viewers for its premiere show, and more than 13 million viewers for the first season. A team called the Wagner Warriors from Owasso and Tulsa, Oklahoma, has a Camrose connection. Team members Daniel Wagner, Joshua Wagner and Jesse Wagner are all young adult students and are the sons of Nicole and Kevin Wagner. Nicole is the daughter of Denise and Lawrence Dufresne of Camrose. A fourth son Luke is also skilled with Bible knowledge, but only three contestants are allowed for the television show. "The three oldest boys will be appearing on the game show during the airing beginning at 7 p.m. on May 2," said an excited Denise. "They are four-time national champions in the Bible Quiz, which is a similar event." Denise said the boys were not allowed to tell her how they did,

or how many episodes they were on. "They went to Hollywood to audition in January and all of the episodes were pre-recorded. They are not allowed to say anything, so this is all we know. Not everyone has the package to receive the Game Show channel. We have it through Lynx (cable TV) and some of our family and friends who don't receive that channel will be coming to our house to watch." The American Bible Challenge is a game show in which three teams of three contestants answer questions based on stories from the Old and New Testament. At the end of the season, the championship team wins more than $100,000. However, all prize money goes to the winning teams’ charities of choice. The Bible is believed to be the best-selling book with over six billion copies in circulation worldwide. More than 80 per cent of Canadians and Americans own a copy of the Bible. But how much do they actually know about it? Author and comedian Jeff aims to find out exactly that. Foxworthy, a devout Christian himself, has made several appearances on television, most notably as the host of "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" and as the star of "The Jeff Foxworthy Show." Aiming to be family-friendly, the weekly show has contestants

competing based on their knowledge of the Bible. Each team is playing for a charity, and these charitable organizations range from churches to hospitals. As the show progresses, the contestants share their compelling faith stories. The Wagner brothers and best friends have been part of the family’s international ministry their whole lives. They’re also four-time Bible Quiz Bowl champions, and are determined to win on behalf of their family’s mission work: bringing food, clothing and shelter to people in the poorest places on earth. The charity is called the Wagner Ministries, International. In 2012, the nationals were held in Columbus, Ohio, and the championship was won by Owasso First Assembly of God in Owasso, Oklahoma, the team's second straight national championship and their fourth in five seasons, tying them for the record for most national championships by a single church. The 2013 national finals will be held June 30 to July 4 in Chicago, Illinois. Bible Quiz, also known as Bible Bowl, is a competition between teams (often representing individual churches) over knowledge of a pre-determined section of the Bible. Various protestant denominations, plus a handful of independent groups, sponsor these competitions.

Healthy ways to banish belly fat Belly fat is often considered more of a cosmetic issue than a health issue. But few outside of the medical or fitness communities may know that belly fat is not only unsightly, but unhealthy as well. Excessive belly fat can increase a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and even certain cancers, including breast cancer and colon cancer. So while many people may want to reduce their belly fat for cosmetic purposes, they can also use improving their overall health as a motivating factor when attempting to trim their waistlines. The following are a few healthy ways to reduce belly fat. ADOPT A HEALTHY DIET Belly fat is often the first victim when men and women adopt a healthy diet and begin to lose weight. Researcher Kristen Hairston, MD, an assistant professor of endocrinology and metabolism at Wake Forest School of Medicine, found that people who ate 10 grams of soluble fiber per day but made no other changes to their diet built up less fat over time than others. In addition to fiber, you should include fruits, vegetables and lean proteins in your diet. These foods will help you feel more full, which will curb your hunger and, as a result, reduce your caloric intake. GET SOME REST A good night’s sleep, which is at least seven hours of sleep each night, has been shown to reduce fat over an extended period of time. Though the exact relationship between sleep and belly fat is unknown, a lack of sleep can force men and women to look to sugary beverages or snacks to provide a boost during the day. Such drinks and snacks can cause weight gain, especially among those people who routinely fail to get a good night’s sleep. GET OFF THE COUCH AND EXERCISE Exercise is another effective way to reduce belly fat. Numerous studies have shown the positive effect that daily, vigorous exercise can have on overall health. For example, a study conducted by researchers at Duke University found that 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise, which includes jogging or working out on a cardiovascular machine, such as an elliptical or a treadmill, four times per week can reduce fat and slow down the buildup of fat over time. Those who want to reduce belly fat will likely need to emphasize vigorous exercise. While those hoping to prevent the buildup of belly fat should know that studies have shown, when coupled with a healthy diet, moderate activity, which includes anything that raises your heart rate, three times per week may be enough to slow down fat buildup.

When you’re doing something you truly love, you reach a point where you’re “in the zone.” You know the feeling we’re talking about. Everything else falls away, and it’s just you, the fabric, and the creativity. It happens when a machine makes your sewing experience so smooth and easy, so worry-free, it quite simply takes you away.

Memory Craft 9900

The MC9900 has so many advanced sewing features, you could put away the embroidery unit and it would still be worth the price. It sews up to 1,000 stitches per minute. It has 9mm stitch width. And it’s so very quiet - even at top speed.

Council addresses needs of Social Development Committee


Continued from page 4

"We have a lot of good people in the community that are taking time out of their day to ensure that these committees – not just the Social Development Committee but all committees – are functioning well. There are commitments that are required to make them function well. If we need to consider assigning a new member to that particular committee so be it, we will do that." Mayor Chalmers expressed the hope that councillor Blatz will be able to continue with his representation to the Camrose public as a councillor. Under section 174 of the Municipal Government Act, a councillor is disqualified from council if he or she is absent from all regular council meetings held during any period of eight consecutive weeks, starting with the date the first meeting is missed, unless council passes a resolution allowing for the council member to be absent for a period of time. "So far that has not happened," said Chalmers. We have never received a request to pass that resolution. Councillor Blatz to this point has not violated section 174." Members at large

Council later in the April 15 agenda appointed Marwan Alsaad and Lucy Ernst as Social Development Committee members at large effective immediately. The applications to serve were reviewed by a Member at Large review panel consisting of Mayor Chalmers, councillor Max Lindstrand and councillor Daryl Shillington.

The Camrose Novice Vikings had a great 2012/2013 season, concluding with the 1660 Tier 1 Consolation Championship! We couldn’t have had such a successful season without the help of our generous sponsors:

Small communities are big when it comes to tourism By Dan Jensen

Small communities have a tremendous role to play in the tourism industry, says Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation Minister Dr. Richard Starke. "We pay a lot of attention to Banff and Jasper," said Dr. Starke during the Growing Rural Tourism Conference at CRE April 8, "but we can't forget about the smaller places like Calmar and Bawlf if we are going to build rural tourism, which is one of the most undeveloped areas of our tourism sector and has some of the greatest potential for growth." Dr. Starke stressed that partnerships are the key to building that which already exists. "My department's goal is to develop the tourism product and to facilitate and help private industry and stakeholders develop that product, because as my friend, the Minister of Finance, Doug Horner often reminds us, you can tell people you have the greatest widgets in the world but if you don't have the widgets to sell them you are not going to get very far. I sometimes say we are in the business of widget development." Dr. Starke said one of the things his department does is provide funding for established events and festivals so that they can develop an action plan to attract more attention and more visitors, and ultimately bring more business to their communities. "This past year for example we were pleased to support the efforts of some 14 events across the province, including the Brooks Medieval Fair and Colonial Days in Lloydminster. We invested over $400,000 in the growth of those festivals and events." Dr. Starke promoted the Travel Alberta road show, which

Tourism, Parks and Recreation Minister Dr. Richard Starke presented the Small Town Saturday Night award to Ben Wilson, from Bashaw, at the Growing Rural Tourism Conference last week.

will be appearing in 10 different locations in the province over the next several weeks, as well as the Remember to Breathe brand, which he said has been recognized as a model for how tourism is branded and how the concept of experiential tourism for travellers is developed. Dr. Starke said while tourism offers tremendous economic benefits, it also builds pride in communities.

"When you are hosting visitors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when you have that opportunity to do that completely and specifically Alberta thing of being a good host, then the pride that you have in your province and in your community builds. I know this from personal experience because I have had the opportunity to host visitors from other parts of Alberta, from parts of Canada and the United States and around the

world. There is nothing quite like showing someone from out of town your town to make you more proud of your town." Dr. Starke said there are things that happen when visitors come to our town that sometimes we don't realize. "When those visitors go home they tell others about what they experienced and what they saw, and specifically they tell the other folks with whom they

interact about Alberta hospitality. Some of those visitors decide to invest in Alberta because they see the business climate that we have, and some of them decide to come to Alberta and become Albertans." Dr. Starke said if there was ever a time in the history of Alberta where we have the opportunity to diversify our economy, step forward and make tourism an even stronger pillar of what Alberta is all about, it is now. "There are so few other sectors that claim to diversify our economy, create and share incredible community spirit in every town across the province, and do it all in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way." Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson said it is important to increase the tourism industry in small communities in and around east central Alberta. "Every small community in the province has been blessed in that it has small things throughout the summer and winter months that make it special. We are different from Calgary and we are different from Banff." Sorenson encouraged those attending the conference to take the best practices they have learned and put them into practice. "As you do, people will understand how great a part of Alberta that we live in is and how important Canada is. They say that two per cent of the world's tourism dollars come to Canada. Friends, that is not enough. We need to do everything we can to show the rest of the world what we have here. We are blessed with some of the most pristine places in the world right here in Alberta."

Rural Tourism Champion award for Energy Discovery Centre By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Rural Tourism Champion award was presented to the Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre at the thirteenth annual Growing Rural Tourism Conference in Camrose April 9. Leduc #1 received top honours for "its phenomenal growth over the past several years and all the opportunities it tirelessly pursued." "Tourism generates economic benefits and builds pride in our communities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in who we are, where we have been and where we are headed," said Dr. Richard Starke, Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation. "The Leduc #1 Discovery Centre shares that pride with visitors by bringing an important part of Alberta's story to life. I congratulate Leduc #1 for earning the title of Alberta's 2013 Rural Tourism Champion." Leduc #1 Discovery Centre manager Lynn Brown said the award is an honour for the Leduc National Historic Society, which operates the centre. "The subject of oil is one you don't expect to be up front in a green environment province, so I think it says a great deal for the committee that they would pick us and understand that we are doing the best job we can to educate Albertans about the source of their prosperity."

Dr. Richard Starke, Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation, and Jenn Filip (right), chair of the Growing Rural Tourism Conference, presented the 2013 Rural Tourism Champion award to Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre manager Lynn Brown.

Growing Rural Tourism conference chair Jenn Filip, who copresented the award over dinner during the three-day summit on rural tourism at the CRE, said the significance of the Champion award is amazing. "This year the number of nominations we received exceeded our expectations and the comprehensiveness of each of these submissions was astonishing."

The Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre, a not-for-profit museum, is dedicated to the preservation of the story of oil and gas following the development of the industry from discovery to recovery and beyond oil to the development of alternative energy. The centre is located on the historical site of the Leduc #1 oil strike of 1947, and includes a 23,000 square foot museum

featuring award winning films, a hands-on learning lab, a drill bit virtual ride, over 200 exhibits, drilling rigs in action, and examples of alternative energies of wind, thermal and wave. The centre's school program is supported by the industry, which has donated funds to cover busing costs for field trips in the months of April and May. "We have two national treasures," said Brown, who is one of the centres' two paid staff. "One is the son of Dryhole Hunter, who brought in the well, who is on site every day giving tours. His father was called Dryhole Hunter because the Leduc #1 was the 134th well drilled by Imperial Oil and they were getting very fed up. They were going to quit drilling in that part of Alberta. Then that one last drill they went a little deeper and found Leduc #1. The other "national treasure" is a veteran of the patch who built platform rigs off the coast of Scotland. "When you come to the centre you can hear all about offshore work," said Brown. "You get a grounded experience because he has been there and done it." In 2012 the Leduc #1 Discovery Centre staged a sixtyfifth anniversary extravaganza for over 10,000 guests with the

hard work of over 200 volunteers. Those providing time, funding, entertainment or displays included political representatives from federal, provincial and municipal governments, 25 companies in the oil industry, local youth, service clubs and the communities of Leduc and Devon. The centre was featured by The Edmonton Journal, Global TV's morning show, the reality TV show Licence to Drill and Sun News. The centre put together a day out event for ladies which involved an Oil 101 session, lunch and a tour of the centre. Between 2011 and 2012 there was a 125 per cent increase in general attendance, a 30 per cent increase in student attendance, and a 45 per cent increase in the usage of meeting rooms. The Rural Tourism Champion award recognizes leadership, innovation and outstanding accomplishments in Alberta rural areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; through campaigns and projects that successfully promote their area or attraction as a must-see destination. The award is sponsored by the Camrose Regional Exhibition, Alberta Agriculture, Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation, and Travel Alberta. Nominations are open to all organizations or individuals in Alberta's tourism industry.

Ralph Olsen

April 12, 2013

Ralph George Olsen of Camrose, formerly of Ferintosh, was born on April 16, 1930 in Camrose. He passed away on April 16, 2013 at the age of 83 in Camrose. Ralph was predeceased by his wife Joyce Christine in 2002. He is survived by one son Jeff (Colleen); two grandchildren Cassandra and Jocelyn of Ferintosh; niece Chris Rhodes (Glen) of Parksville BC; and numerous nieces and nephews, all beloved. The funeral will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, April 26, 2013 at Weber’s Mount Pleasant Chapel, Camrose, Alberta. Memorial donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.

No one really knows when Shirley was born, but it happened in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Norma and John Graham. Shirley lived with her parents in Lac La Biche, then Red Deer. She felt proud and blessed to have David, Danny, Barb, Janet and Susan as her siblings. She met Gerald at a camp meeting and married in 1959. They attended ABI from 1957 to 1961 and made many great lifetime friends. They moved to Swan Hills and started a family. They had four children, starting with Karen, then Carla, Pam and, 11 months later, Chris. While in Quesnel, Shirley had a café. They moved to Vernon in 1972 and Shirley worked at a chick hatchery, and then at the school district. In 1995, Shirley moved back to Camrose and worked at St Mary’s Hospital. She enjoyed life here and developed many cherished friendships. Shirley was loved by all who knew her, was happy to share with others and was exceptionally giving to charities. Shirley valued family, cherishing her sisters and brothersin-law Loretta, Barb, Baird, Ivan and Allan. She loved being connected to the families of her siblings and believed she was blessed to have 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild, Amber, Shelby, Ben, Devann, Brittany, Kristin, Amanda, Lauren, Cassie, Nathan, Drew, Erica and Connor, and now Mikael. She loved knowing their activities, staying active texting, skiing, rollerblading, and Facebooking them. Shirley was a devoted, loving wife. She was a strong compassionate woman deeply loved by her family and friends. A funeral service was held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. from Camrose Church of God with Rev. Brian Krushel officiating. Cremation has taken place. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation or the charity of one’s choice.

City council approves audited financial statements By Dan Jensen

City council approved the 2012 audited financial statements and financial information return for the 2012 year-end at its regular meeting April 15. The statements indicated the City had revenues of $44,617,223 and expenditures of $42,246,624. Municipal taxes accounted for $20,774,148 of total revenues, followed by user fees and sale of goods at $15,057,642 and government transfers of $2,471,401. Major expenditures came in recreation and culture, $9,373,242; roads, streets, walks and lighting, $8,870,544; water, wastewater and waste management, $8,499,536; and protective services, $8,136,195.

The accumulated surplus at the end of the year was $209,325,928, up from $204,374,704 at the end of the year in 2011. Total debt for the City of Camrose at the end of 2012 was $22,541,588, of which $14,280,855 was supported by general tax levies, $2,963,768 by utility rates and $5,296,965 by special levies. Total long term debt at the end of 2011 was $24,060,939. Principal and interest payments on the debt in 2013 will be $3,045,144, a number that will drop to $3,008,765 in 2014, $2,609,680 in 2015 and $2,293,560 in 2016. The total debt limit for the City of Camrose in 2012 was $66,925,835.

Grant Thornton spokesperson Michael Wetsch told council the City of Camrose is at 33 per cent of its total debt limit. "You have a few that are under that where they used less debt, but we have Wetaskiwin, Cold Lake and Leduc that have all used a little over 50 per cent of their total debt limit." Wetsch said the residential mill rate for Camrose, which is sitting right around 10, is comparable to that of Wetaskiwin, Brooks, Cold Lake and Lacombe. "If we look at some of the bigger cities we can see that the residential mill rate is a fair bit lower but, like I said, they also have assessment values to work with, so they can have a lower

mill rate and still generate the same amount of taxes." The non residential mill rate for the City of Camrose (commercial taxes) is just over 15 mills. "It has gone down a little bit from last year but the majority of other cities are under that," said Wetsch. "Then we do have Wetaskiwin, which is up around 22. They are taxing their commercial and industrial and those sort of things at a lot higher level." The City of Camrose received requisitions of $5,672,537 in 2012 from the Alberta School Foundation Fund and $793,614 from Elk Island CSRD No. 41. The City of Camrose paid

a salary of $53,478 to the mayor and $17,989 to each of the eight councillors. The salary paid to the City manager was $161,000. Councillor Gerry Galenza commended City treasurer Diane Urkow and the administration for the work they have done to get the financial statements ready to go to the province by the May 1 deadline. "A few years ago we were struggling to get it done by the deadline. I am pleased to see it is here and that we are not asking for any extensions. It shows the province we are abiding by things and that the City of Camrose is in good shape." The financial statement will be posted on the City of Camrose website.

Legion celebrates 85 years of dedicated service

Veteran Don Nelson cuts into the Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion 85th anniversary cake with the help of president Gord Minnes. Don later received a 70-year pin for his continuous service to the Legion. Murray Green, Camrose Booster Mrs. Cheryl Nester's Grade 4 to 6 choir from Chester Ronning School sang "In Flanders Fields" in front of many veterans and guests during the Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion's 85th anniversary at the Legion on April 19. The local branch started in 1928 with veterans from the Boer and First World War.

The local Legion has been a hard-working service club for the community. Ladies Auxiliary president Grace Torpe, from left to right, City of Camrose councillor John Howard, Camrose County Reeve Don Gregorwich and Legion president Gord Minnes unveiled the $1.6 million cheque that represents the amount the club has donated to the community in just the last 30 years. The amount of work and dedication the members have put into the community over the last 85 years is priceless.

Ladies' Auxiliary president Grace Torpe pins a poppy on a cross to pay tribute to the past presidents that have passed on. The Canadian flags mark the graves of the unknown soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice during worldly conflicts.

Impressive custom-built bungalow

4870-51 Street, Camrose


Teachers vote to accept provincial framework agreement Teachers in Battle River Local have voted to accept the framework agreement proposed to teachers and school boards by the premier. The framework includes salary and other rates of pay, as well as provisions to enhance quality of education through improved conditions of practice and reduced teacher workload. If the framework is accepted, teacher salary rates will not increase until September 1, 2015. “Our teachers have been expressing concern about deteriorating conditions of practice,” says Battle River Local President Jeff Myck. “This offer should help with some of the professional concerns for teachers, but we will still advocate for the funding required to reduce class sizes and address classroom complexities. Reducing newer initiatives is another concern and this framework agreement provides a process wherein a serious attempt is made to resolve teacher workload issues related to these newer initiatives.” “Teachers have the final say on whether we accept this offer and with the ratification from Battle River Local, we now have 18 bargaining units which have agreed to the offer,” says provincial ATA President Carol Henderson. “We felt that teachers would support this offer because of the improvements it offers to teachers’ conditions of practice, despite our concerns about the financial elements.” The provincial framework must be ratified by all 62 Association bargaining units and school boards by May 13, 2013. Ratification of the agreement would ensure labour peace for Alberta students through to 2015/16. Local collective agreement provisions not covered in the framework will need to be negotiated between local ATA bargaining units and local school boards by December 31, 2013. Items in dispute at that time would be referred to arbitration. Geographically centred in Camrose, Battle River School Division serves 6,300 students in central east Alberta. The Battle River bargaining unit includes 435 teachers.

Spring training program for Hospice Society of Camrose volunteers The Hospice Society of Camrose and District is offering a training program this spring called “Being with Dying: Lessons for Living.” Presented by a team of educators, counsellors, and nurses from the Camrose community, the course will provide participants with a deeper understanding of how to face the dying process oneself and how to accompany others. Open to everyone, it will also serve as a foundation for those who wish to become hospice volunteers. Offered over three Saturdays and one Friday evening, this training approaches hospice work by emphasizing one’s own inner peace as the basis for being with someone who is dying. As such, the program presents methods for developing a peaceful attitude in the midst of this final stage of life’s journey. The first session “Being with Dying: cultivating inner peace for comfort in hospice care” (April 19-20) reflected on death as a natural part of life. This initial weekend also considered how much we can give to others by simply being present. Participants learned how to listen in a non judgmental way that acknowledges the wisdom of those who are dying. The second weekend is “Spiritual Care and Self Care: grace and compassion for self and others” (May 4). Here, the emphasis will be on the spiritual dimensions of the dying process – for many, this stage in life can offer the gifts of deeper awareness, forgiveness, and healing. Dying can also come with a great deal of worry and burden. For this reason, self-care is also considered an essential element of hospice support. The third Saturday (May 11) has two parts. The morning will cover “Grief and Loss: the journey to acceptance and understanding.” This presents the process of grieving and offers ways of moving through our own losses and accompanying others. The training concludes in the afternoon with “Physical and Medical Care: completing a vision of holistic care” which will provide a basic understanding of the physical and clinical dimensions of the dying process. Please visit or call 780-672-1509 for more information.

Administrative professionals: so much more than secretaries Administrative Professionals' Week, which used to be known as National Secretaries Week, is April 21 to 27. This event is more relevant today than it has ever been. Nowadays, secretaries are assistants, technicians, and even managers. They are very much in demand, and employers would do well to remember that! In fact, if there is an employment sector that is not stagnating it has to be the secretar- ial profession, which is evolving at the same pace as technology. It is common for secretaries to play with computer graphics software or to be able to create a Web site

or hypermedia documents. Resourcefulness, independence, initiative, meticulousness, and creativity are just some of the necessary qualities in this profession. That is why it is so essential to recognize the efficiency and skills of administrative professionals. It is also vital to promote this profession, which, unfortunately, still suffers from old prejudices that are surprisingly tenacious. Some people still believe that a secretary’s role only involves answering the phone and typing! This completely obsolete perspective must be eradicated. The responsibilities of adminis-

trative professionals require specialized qualifications and their professional contribution has a direct influence on the economy. Imagine a world without secretaries: total chaos! Administrative Professionals' Week is a showcase for this versatile and relevant profession. Young people considering this path will discover something close to unlimited career potential. Future prospects and employment rates are highly favourable, so why not jump at the opportunity to join an indispensable profession that is playing an increasingly important role in today’s world?

A stimulating and rewarding job Is the secretarial profession on the verge of extinction? Absolutely not! This vocation, which is known to have been practiced in ancient civilizations (think scribes and clerks), is an essential one to all types of organizations. It also promises excellent employment opportunities for those with the right skills. Are you comfortable with new technologies and computers? Do you have a good mastery of English or

even a second language? Are you a pro in the art of juggling several files at the same time (figuratively, of course)? Are you looking for a stimulating job that will satisfy your ambitions? Then office administration is the job for you! Naturally, an office administrator will flourish in his or her job if it is in a realm of particular interest to the individual: a school, newspaper, industry, or town office, for example.

Apart from administrative secretaries, there are several other special- izations within this profession, including legal and medical secretaries. As well as being extremely stimulating, this profession is also rewarding. Greeted by everyone morning and evening, the secretary is without doubt one of the only people who all the employees know and trust. There’s no way you can beat that!

Happy Admin Pro Day! In recognition of Administrative Professionals’ Week, the City of Camrose extends a special thank you to all of our administrative staff for the hard work they do for us all year! Your professionalism is a major part of every success here at the City of Camrose. Our sincere thanks for your essential contributions to helping Camrose grow as a dynamic community with an exceptional quality of life. City of Camrose


Unsung heroes Administrative Professionals'' Week was formerly known as Secretaries Week. As the name of this special week has changed, so has the work of these exceptional team players. Over the years, the role of a secretary has broadened to include tasks which she executes independently and on her own initiative. Information technology now allows administrative assistants to play an indispensable role in any organization, whether it’s private, commercial, industrial or cultural. Administrative Assistants' Week is a great opportunity to highlight the work of administrative support staff and their contribution to the success of our businesses and organizations. For administrative assistants are our unsung heroes, knowing how to combine diverse skills and many different assets. All segments of our economy are dependent on their work and their professionalism. Whether they are management secretaries, executive secretaries, technical secretaries or receptionistsecretaries, they accomplish all the tasks which constitute the basis of any business.

Administrative pros are key individuals Anyone who has ever worked in an office knows that once you lose your secretaries and administrative assistants, everything immediately falls to pieces – and that's never a pretty sight. Anyone who can stay on top of everything that is going on around them deserves to have their own special day. That's why we celebrate Administrative Professionals' Week each year. Often underpaid, almost always overworked, administrative professionals are master jugglers. They make sure deadlines are met, meetings take place, priorities are established and calls are returned. They have this sort of omnipresence that can almost be downright scary. But their efficiency and productivity is nothing short of remarkable. That's why employers have started to see these hardworking professionals for what they really are: invaluable business partners. Administrative professionals may still work with notebooks, but unlike the blank lined pages of the 1970s, today's notebooks feature DVD drives and wireless Internet technology. And no one is afraid to find a mouse on his or her desk these days! Forget the stereotypical image of someone who has to wait to be told what to do. Today's administrative professionals are key individuals who are extremely organized and full of initiative.

Rethinking rural development Second Thought

When people discuss policies for rural development, they often raise the “3 C’s” as solutions: Competition, Collaboration, and Capacitybuilding. All three of these seem to be unquestionably good things. In fact, though, while these three dynamics may produce short-term economic growth and prosperity, they can also produce dangerous inequalities that are rarely taken into account. This is particularly relevant for rural communities, where both external and internal factors (like globalization, urbanization and the shift to agri-business) create very real issues, and are also linked to declining incomes, health, employment and environmental quality. This emphasis on competition, collaboration and capacity-building reinforces a “help them help themselves” approach for rural Canada, but this also means that responsibility for such matters as health, employment, poverty and the environment is shifted to local governments. Since local governments do not have the tax resources central governments have at their disposal, it is very likely that standards and services will deteriorate, even as communities “build capacity”. There is another problem as well. As budgets, and services, contract, the policy response tends to be: (1) “communities” are the solution; (2) capacity-building helps communities create “better” solutions; and (3) better solutions are arrived at through competition. This creates a double-edged sword – rural and regional development is devolved to local communities, yet the fundamental decisions that determine the strengths or weaknesses of rural economies are not made by people in the rural communities themselves. Rather, they are increasingly made by corporations or by individual entrepreneurs who have no interest in the wellbeing of the communities affected by their decisions. While rural communities are expected, with limited resources, to “help themselves” deal with

challenges created by the decisions of others, they actually have little influence on these decisions. To some extent, this approach is ‘justified’ by the notion that Western settler farmers are self-sufficient, hard-working and independent people who like nothing better than to have responsibilities downloaded upon them. What really determines the emphasis of the 3 C’s, though, is the broader ideological imperative of our time to undermine the power of large collective groups, so that both individuals and small communities become self-governing, autonomous actors who have become convinced of, accept, and willingly engage in, the realization that any responsibility for improving the conditions of their existence lie solely with themselves. Such a realization requires citizens or communities to take on an expanded range of socio-economic obligations, but also places the burden of “failure” squarely on their shoulders as well. Communities are encouraged, or required, to gain the capacity and skills necessary to “help themselves” by reducing capacity deficits and remedying the perceived deficiencies of the community, and its citizens, in order to compete for increasingly

scarce government resources, grants, tax-payers, industrial and private investment and services. However, when the community “fails” to compete effectively enough in securing these much sought-after (and often diminishing) resources, the failure conveniently becomes the fault of the community and its people. Given these broad patterns, what are the options for rural communities in Canada? Increasingly, people in rural communities think that “choosing rural” should not be synonymous with “choosing less.” However, in Canada, we have not seen the protests, concerts and other forms of activism sparked by rural decline that have appeared in other countries, with the exception of some Aboriginal and northern communities. The decline of rural Canada appears to be accepted by most Canadians as a “done deal” an unfortunate sideeffect of the interaction of globalization, urban growth and economic competition. Engagement, participation and active citizenship all have the potential to bear fruit as rural citizens seek to reclaim the authority and autonomy of their own communities. However, we should be aware that there is also the potential for community-based policy to shape the direction, action and role of rural communities as a sector of government itself. In other words, community and community-based policy become a way to link the (usually) positive values of rural communities with the (less positive) values and structures of neoliberalism in order to establish, maintain and reinforce political and economic objectives. In other words, community, and the “3 Cs” noted above, become a method of governing. Such a method is a practice of “governing at a distance” that perpetuates the illusion of autonomy, responsibility and capacity, while simultaneously supporting an implicit agenda of markets, competition, individualism and deregulation, along with the numerous inequalities they produce.

Toyota Tacoma Performance and versatility

Geoff Skakun Toyota City By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Tacoma at Toyota City, Wetaskiwin provides sporty performance and surprising versatility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; backed by Toyota's reputation for building trucks that conquer the toughest weather and driving conditions on the planet. "Whether it's work or fun there is a Toyota Tacoma for every need," said Geoffrey Skakun, from Toyota City. Toyota Tacoma is available with four-cylinder or V6 engines, manual or automatic transmissions, 4x2 or 4x4 drive trains, Access Cab or Double Cab configurations, and five-foot or six-foot cargo beds. Four-cylinder Tacoma models feature a 2.7 litre engine that develops 159 peak horsepower and up to 180 lb.-ft. of torque, coupled to a choice of five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic ECT transmission with lockup torque converter. The estimated fuel consumption for the fourcylinder is just 8.8 litres per 100 km with the manual transmission and 9.4 litres per 100 km with the automatic. Four-cylinder models feature the four-person Access Cab and a choice of 4x2 or 4x4 drive trains. For more power, Tacoma models equipped with Toyota's 4.0 litre V6 generate 236 peak horsepower and up to 266 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or five-speed Super ECT automatic transmission with lockup torque converter. V6 models feature 4x4 drive trains and a choice of four-person Access Cab or five-passenger Double Cab. Estimated fuel consumption with the Tacoma V6 is 12.1 litres per 100 km with the manual transmission and 11.4 litres per 100 km with the automatic transmission. All engines feature Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, Sequential Multiport Electronic Fuel Injection, Electronic Throttle Control System with Intelligence, and other systems to maximize power and efficiency under all load conditions.

The Tacoma's suspension system delivers offroad driving confidence while providing a surprisingly comfortable ride on the open road. All Tacoma models feature an independent double wishbone front suspension with gas shock absorbers, coil springs and a stabilizer bar, plus a leaf spring rear suspension with gas shocks. Safety is always standard on every Tacoma, so every Tacoma features six airbags (dual-stage driver and front passenger, front seat mounted side, and roll-sensing front and rear head/side curtain), plus Active Front Headrests with Whiplash Protection, anchor points for child seats, and a direct tire pressure monitoring system. As with every new Toyota since 2011, the 2013 Tacoma is also standard equipment with the six active safety technologies of the Star Safety System: Antilock Brake System, Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Vehicle Stability Control, Active Traction Control, and Smart Stop Technology work together to help drivers avoid potential accident situations. 4x2 Tacoma models feature rear-wheel-drive with an auto-limited slip rear differential, while 4x4 models feature on-demand 4WD with an auto-limited slip/auto disconnecting rear differential, two-speed transfer case, and one-touch

4WD control with incabin indicator, making it easy to switch between RWD and 4WD, even on the fly. All Tacomas are generously equipped with comfort and convenience features, including: air conditioning, power door locks, power windows with driver-side auto down function, a tilting/ telescoping steering column, plenty of thoughtful in-cabin storage, a digital clock, 12-volt accessory power outlet, front tow hook, dual exterior mirrors, rear step bumper, removable tailgate, tiedown cleats, a double-wall composite cargo bed, a 3,500 lb. towing capacity, two-speed wipers with mist feature, and more. New for this year, all Tacoma models feature a six-speaker, 6.1-inch display audio system with integrated Bluetooth connectivity, auxiliary radio and USB inputs. The 4x4 Double Cab V6 may be enhanced with a choice of five available option packages. The SR5 Power Package adds 6,500 lbs. of towing capacity on manual transmission models, plus trailer-sway control system, 7-pin trailer wire harness and Class IV weight distribution hitch, an engine oil cooler, a transmission cooler, upgraded alternator, 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, LED brake lamps, chrome grille and rear bumper, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, metallic dash accents, and illuminated entry. The Limited Package, new for 2013, builds on the SR5 Power Package with 18-inch chrome wheels, a premium JBL Audio system with subwoofer, extension audio with navigation and enhanced voice recognition, SMS-tospeech and e-mail-to-speech capabilities, access to phone book and streaming audio via Bluetooth, heated front sport seats with front seat back pockets, Softex trimmed seating, garage door opener, chrome mirrors with integrated signal lamps, fog lamps with chrome surround, chrome finished door handles and Limited badging.

Local girls challenge for roster spots By Murray Green

Six teams will be battling in the 2013 ATB Alberta Challenge trophy in Medicine Hat at the Family Leisure Centre on May 2 to 5. The female hockey tournament brings together the top U16 players into six teams representing two regional zones from across the province. South Coyotes, South Flyers, South Lightning, North Predators, North Red Wings and North Royals will compete in a short-term tournament. The rosters are made up of 20 athletes, three coaches, a coach mentor, a director of operations and a trainer. The North Royals have three local players on their roster. Defenceman Taylor Kezama

of Camrose, forward Jillian MacWilliam of Hay Lakes and forward Mikaela Reay of Bashaw will be competing for a provincial camp tryout. Taylor played for the bantam double-A Bulldogs, Jillian played for the female bantam Cubs and midget Grizzlies provincial winning team and Mikeaka played for the Red Deer triple-A female squad. “The ATB Alberta Challenge has gone through some changes in 2013. The biggest change is the drafting of the six teams from two large regional selection camps, three from the south and three from the north,” said U16 female program coordinator, Grant Glowinski. “It promises to bring a whole new level of compe-

tition and excitement, something we are all looking forward to.” It all begins in April every other year with players trying out at the regional selection camps. Each of the 120 athletes playing in the ATB Alberta Challenge is competing for one of 60 invitations to the U16 female provincial camp. The camp is the final stage in the first year of the Team Alberta program. It provides all players, coaches, trainers and referees an equal opportunity to discover the great qualities of competitive hockey in a wellorganized select team competition. The program is held in years opposite the Alberta Winter Games.

Hauser’s Home Hardware Building Centre won the Challenge Cup at the 16th annual Centra Cam Bowl-a-thon. Accepting the trophy were Angie Arksey, Rob Hauser, Lane Schneider and David Sjerven, front, of Hauser’s Home Hardware Building Centre. Submitted

Centra Cam held a successful Bowl-a-thon on Friday, March 8. A total of 94 bowlers enjoyed a great afternoon of fun and friendly competition. The bowlers included Centra Cam clients and staff and members of the challenge teams. There were great prizes donated by local businesses. Centra Cam’s 16th annual Bowl-a-thon raised over $22,000 through the fantastic support of the people of Camrose and local businesses. Each year, the support for the Bowl-a-thon continues to grow. The main goals of the Bowl-a-thon are to increase awareness of Centra Cam's programs and raise funds to offset rising costs. The team from Hauser’s Home Hardware Building Centre raised over $2,000 to win the 11th annual Centra Cam Challenge Cup. The team from Camrose Insurance Services finished second and Camrose County placed third. The team from Battle River Credit Union raised over $2,800 to win the eighth annual Bank Challenge Cup. Also competing for the Bank Challenge Cup were teams from Scotiabank, CIBC, Bank of Montreal and the Royal Bank. The Bowl-a-thon is our major annual fund-raising event. Centra Cam Clients, staff and board members thank the community for sponsoring our bowlers on their pledge sheets, donating prizes and being so very supportive of this important annual event.

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.

Dan Hope receives Augustana's male athlete of the year award from hockey coach Blaine Gusdal at the Colour Night on April 13.

Kelsey Lund and Daniel Hope were named the female and male athletes of the year at the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus at Colour Night on April 13. Kelsey was named to the ACAC first team north all-star squad this year and received player of the week honours on the Augustana team that lost only one league game and one playoff game all season. She is from Worsley and has been committed to the Augustana women’s basketball program as it improved each year with her leadership. Coach Leanne Shenton said, “I thought I didn't have a chance of getting her to Augustana because she wanted to play closer to home. But, I'm glad Kelsey chose to play here. This year we had a very strong team and her performance was extraordinary. Kelsey had 10 double-doubles, which means she scored at least 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in each of those 10 games. This is about half of our games. She had a game high of 32 points and 15 rebounds. And, she did this against some of the most competitive teams and important games of the season." Kelsey had a successful high school career on both the basketball and volleyball court. "Kelsey is an amazing athlete and plays basketball with a tremendous amount of heart,” said coach Shenton. "The phone has been ringing off the hook from CIS teams. She has never given an ounce of attitude. When I asked for something to be done, she

replied, "I can do that." She has been really remarkable." Kelsey had a successful high school career on both the basketball and volleyball court as well. For the third consecutive year an Augustana hockey player has been selected as the Camrose athlete of the year. Daniel Hope is a fourth year Vikings' player from Kelvington, Saskatchewan, studying business economics. "He was one of my top recruits that I went after when I started with the Vikings," said coach Blaine Gusdal. "I made it impossible for him to turn me down. He was the assistant captain for three years and the captain this past year. He has been in the top six scorers in the league in all four years for us." Daniel played with the Melville Millionaires of the SJHL from 2007-09 as a team captain. In 2009, the Millionaires advanced to the league final. "In his first year on the Vikings he set a record of scoring 15 power play goals and has led in power play goals each season," added the coach.

This season, while sporting a 3.9 GPA (grade point average out of four), the captain of the Vikings was the leading scorer in the league and led his team with 18 goals, 25 assists. "Daniel has played in 112 straight games. He came to me after his junior career with a serious concussion and there was some concern whether he could play. He has played every single league and playoff game for us at Augustana," said the coach proudly. As a power play specialist, Daniel scored a league-leading nine power play goals. Hope is now the all-time career point leader for Vikings hockey in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference with 155 points. “I am extremely proud of Daniel and his accomplishments with Vikings hockey over the past four years. This is a fitting award for the consummate team leader,” said coach Gusdal. "He has been the leader in the hockey academy program with the Battle River School Division and helped coach with Camrose Minor Hockey."

Petition gaining momentum By Dan Jensen

A Facebook page set up April 17 with the goal of gaining support for a new aquatic centre in Camrose is gaining momentum. Camrose New Aquatic Centre had, as of last Friday, received more than 971 "likes" and 30 written messages. An on-line petition that was included on the page had received 91 signatures. Cathie Johnson, who posted one of the comments, said Camrose is in desperate need of a new aquatic centre, but not just a leisure pool. "Please make sure it has a pool that can be used for hosting tournaments and synchro programs," said Johnson. "Leduc is a great one to look at." Other posters noted that Camrose is long overdue for a new swimming pool. Cheryl Olson-Hayes said her family travels to Sherwood Park or Leduc to swim. "This pool has very little to offer a family. The water is so cold my youngest can't even concentrate on his swimming lessons because he is too busy freezing. I think for a community this size we should have a pool that can support swim meets and a pool that has something to offer children. I also would like to see swimming lessons on the weekends for older children; if kids are in any sort of activities after school it is very hard to squeeze in swimming lessons during the week. Seriously it is about time we get a pool that can accommodate this community!" Tammy Schmidt King said city residents should speak out to where their property tax money is allocated. "A commitment to build a new City Hall resulted in Greg Wood's resignation. All the funds needed haven't been received yet. My family would support a new pool. A new City Hall benefits very few people." Camrose Leisure Services general manager and acting City manager Paul Nielsen said there is nothing really wrong with the Aquatic Centre. "It is a little bit over 30 years old but it is in good shape and it is functional. We have some issues with our building envelope – roof leaks and those sorts of things which we continue to budget for correcting – and we work away at that as we can." Nielsen said the attendance at the Camrose Aquatic Centre has grown over the last three years. "That the attendance has grown is a credit to our staff because it is programs that bring people to the facility not the facility itself." The City of Camrose has included money in the budget to hire an engineering firm to conduct an assessment of the Camrose Aquatic Centre and provide a report on what can be done in terms of a major upgrade or renovation. "If they say it is going to cost almost as much to do an upgrade as it is to build a new one then that is something council is going to have to deal with," said Nielsen. "Certainly there are some other capital project priorities going on as we speak that are taking precedence at this point in time in our budgeting process."
