Kicking up their heels in support of the Rotary Black Tie Dinner, which in turn is helping the Rotary Community Youth Centre come to life are: Rotary President -Shirley Rostad, Girl Guide -Kathleen Clark, Scout-Nathanael Mascaluk, Soccer player - Jeremiah Mascaluk and Rotarian Roy Wallace.

A tremendous amount of community support extended privately and corporately, along with a significant level of assistance from the City of Camrose, means the Rotary Community Youth Centre is well on its way to completion. The driving force behind the project is the Rotary Club of Camrose. The structure is rapidly being constructed directly across the street from the Camrose Community Centre/Field House.

Imogene Walsh has more skills to offer to the community than a knack for numbers. The Battle River School Division assistant superintendent-business also loves helping others. She was appointed to the board of the Battle River Community Foundation to help local people and organizations improve the communities in which they live. The number cruncher wants to make an impact on people's lives. "I was approached to join the board last fall. I was quite excited because it has been something that I've watched for years within the community. I like the role that it plays and the support it has given to different organizations," said director Imogene Walsh. "I have admired the work. I have admired the people on the board. For me, this is not only an opportunity to give back to the community, but it is an opportunity to learn from some of the

great leaders that are sitting on that board. This is really exciting for me. Knowing the impact the board members have in helping others, and some of them have done this for a long time, I can't help but get excited about the future. It is sometimes hard to imagine the impact the BRCF has." Imogene knows that the BRCF helps a lot of people and organizations. "The BRCF covers a large area. Initially, I was under the impression it was only Camrose that benefitted. As I read some of things in the papers, I soon realized it has a huge area that they were covering. It is quite impressive," said Imogene. "The BRCF doesn't just support one area or one particular cause; it is varied. Basically, everyone's interests are covered across the area and are being represented by that group." Imogene has seen first hand

the benefits of the BRCF. "I know that it has helped students with scholarships and with some of the projects that we have had. There is that awareness, but I also am aware of the work being done out east in our rural communities," she added. Now that Imogene has sat on the board for a few months, her views have changed. "I'm even more in awe. Part of it is having that understanding. The more I sit around the table, the more opportunities I have to listen to what is going on in the surrounding communities. It is quite impressive to hear, not just the Foundation board, but the different proposals that are being made. Sometimes we think this is a pretty selfish world, but this is proof that it isn't," she explained. "There are people thinking of many others. The fact that people can support others monetarily is nice. Not everybody has that ability." Continued on page 6

BRSD trustees vote for closure There will be two fewer schools in Battle River School Division next fall, after an April 25 meeting at which members of the Battle River School Division board of trustees voted in favour of permanently closing Lougheed School and Rosalind School, effective June 28, 2013. The closure discussions at these sites began as a result of ongoing low enrollments in those schools and the school division’s growing concern that, given current economic and population realities, the current educational programming could not be maintained at those sites in the future. Both schools were projecting Grades 1 to 9 enrollments in the low 40s next year. “These were not easy decisions, or decisions that anyone on the Board made lightly,” says board chair Doug Bowie. “Closure of a school would never be our first choice. We recognize that the impact of decisions such as these is far-reaching and we’ve tried many things over the years to keep our smallest schools viable.” “But at the heart of our decision-making is our mandate to educate children. I know every board member cast his or her vote based on what each believed to be in the best future educational interests of the children we serve.”

Government committed to lodge improvements Maintenance and improvements of up to 172 seniors’ lodges, cottages and unique homes will benefit as many as 10,000 seniors across the province. “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.” 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. There are 153 lodges, 11 cottages and eight unique homes operating in Alberta with more than 10,000 living units eligible for support.

Camrose police had fewer crimes to deal with in 2012 By Dan Jensen

The number of reported crimes in Camrose decreased by seven per cent in 2012 according to the Camrose Police Service crime analysis released last week. "This includes an 18 per cent reduction in crimes against persons, which was a targeted area of concern in 2012," said Camrose Chief of Police Darrel Kambeitz. The analysis also shows an eight per cent decrease in 2012 in reported drug offences. "This decrease was anticipated as our efforts were focused on drug traffickers, resulting in fewer possession charges," said Kambeitz. The Camrose Police Service's commitment to training and preparedness was tested in 2012 with two homicides. "Each investigation is a priority requiring significant resources dedicated from the start and ongoing until its presentation to the courts," said Kambeitz. "The complex investigations which resulted in the persons responsible charged are verification of the competency and commitment of all our personnel." The total reported criminal offences in 2012 was 1,787. Crimes against persons

The number of crimes against persons totalled 325 in

2012, down from 398 the year before. "In 2012 crimes against persons were three per cent below the ten-year average," states a crime analysis commentary. Level 1 assaults totalled 154, down from 173 the year before, while level II assaults totalled 27, down from 31 the year before. The number of assaults on police officers totalled four, down from 10 in 2011. The number of sexual assaults increased from nine in 2011 to 12, while the number of cases involving the utterance of threats and criminal harassment totalled 75 and 35 respectively. The analysis suggests the increase in homicides from one in 2011 to two in 2012 is an area that needs some consideration. "Future analysis will need to identify if this trend is continuing, as significant human, financial and specialized police resources are required and need to be effectively and efficiently planned for, managed and allocated. When trying to identify current trends or causes for the increase in this area, no proactive measures could be implemented and no conclusive findings or patterns were noted." Crimes against property





against property totalled 997, down from 1041 the year before. Thefts under $5,000 totalled 444, up from 413, while break and enters and frauds totalled 88 and 93 respectively. Thirty of the break and enters involved residences, compared to 16 which involves businesses. The number of cases involving property damage under $5,000 was 243. The number of cases involving the possession of stolen property was 69, up from 47 the year before. Drug offences

The total number of drug offences was 174, down eight per cent from 189 the year before. "Illicit drug activities continue to be a primary criminal market in our community," said the analysis. "As a result of the complexities and varying levels of drug activities and associated persons, drug related offences and enforcement tend to be closely linked to other criminal offences and statistics. Through targeted enforcement and education initiatives the Camrose Police Service has maintained a consistent proactive approach to addressing issues associated with illicit drug activities." The analysis noted that the aggressive and coordinated enforcement activities utilized by the police to combat drug related

issues resulted in a 73 per cent increase in cocaine trafficking offences being recorded. "By continuing to utilize these same strategies and initiatives, subsequent increases may be noted in specific reported drug offences in future crime analysis reports." Criminal code offences

Criminal code traffic offences, including impaired driving/ over 80 mg per cent, fail/refusal to provide a breath sample, driving while disqualified/prohibited, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and roadside suspensions totalled 236, down from 294 the year before. Provincial traffic offences

Provincial traffic offences, including failure to stop/remain at an accident, driving with undue care and attention, driving while disqualified, moving traffic violations, non-moving traffic violations, insurance charges, parking violations and written warnings totalled 11,552. Crime Prevention

The Camrose Police Service crime prevention officer gave several presentations to organizations and groups in 2012 on fraud prevention, identity theft, drug awareness, impaired driving, cyber safety, domestic violence, self defence, robbery procedures, school zone safety and mobility aid safety.

The officer also updated businesses and citizens about current crime trends. "During the year several fanouts and one-on-one meetings were completed warning potential victims," said the analysis. The Camrose Police Service crime prevention unit continued to work closely with Camrose and District Victim Services, which makes sure all victims of crime and tragedy have access to all available resources and services that are within the community and province. The unit also acts as the liaison between the Camrose and District Crime Stoppers board and the Camrose Police Service. DARE Program

Approximately 600 students (200 from Grade 3, 200 from Grade 6 and 200 from Grade 8) participated in the DARE program. Grade 3 students receive five classes of DARE instruction, including topics such as personal safety, bullying and drug awareness. Grade 6 and Grade 8 students receive ten classes of DARE instruction. The Grade 8 students are now receiving a new DARE program, Keeping It Real, which represents the four main strategies to get out of tough situations involving drugs, violence and peer pressure.

Imogene Walsh appointed to BRCF Continued from page 2

Imogene said that all of the large groups such as the Camrose Women's Shelter and Habitat for Humanity will always receive funding from generous people. "Social groups are always looking for sponsorship. But, it is the little groups such as maintaining a cemetery or a library you normally don't think about that need support as well. Giving $500 to some groups is a lot of money to help them, but it is appreciated in the same way a larger donation might be to a larger organization. I wouldn't have the same level of awareness without being involved in the BRCF. It is not always the big ticket item

that is the most important. Understanding that is really important." Imogene said the same view must be taken with people donating to the BRCF. "It is nice to receive a large donation, but it is equally important to receive small donations. They add up and help people the same way." The board can also gain from Imogene's experience. "I hope to offer a fresh set of eyes at the table and offer some ideas on administration that I can share from my own work history," she added. "I have been involved with the Camrose Rotary Club for a number of years. Most of the focus is within Camrose, but some of it is international work," explained Imogene.

"I enjoy this even more because your influence benefits a substantial area. There are not very many organizations like the BRCF that you can be part of that actually impact as many local people. To be a part of that is a really great feeling." Since its founding in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1.7 million to various worthwhile projects and initiatives throughout the geographic area it serves.

There are many reasons to be grateful for the conveniences of the Internet, including the way I intend to send this letter. However, one realizes that this may be overdone. On the one hand, one is bomStan Trautman (left), Walter Busenius, and Barry Arnett.

Stan Trautman and Walter Busenius placed nesting material atop 10-foot platforms on the land formerly owned by Walter. The present owner, Barry Arnett, ably drove his tractor and loader through several feet of snow.

The platforms were erected by Walter several years ago. There were eggs in two of the nests. This is a great project by Walter, who, along with Stan, is a member of Ducks Unlimited and the Camrose Fish and Game Association.

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

Thanks to a thoughtful lady It is common for any of us to get messages on our telephones from people we do not know. They are often from telemarketers and we tend to regard them as irritating nuisance calls. I checked my telephone messages recently and got one that made me feel like I had a brand new friend. It made me feel good and I really did appreciate the call – much more than the caller realized, I am sure. I had earlier called my dentist. His receptionist had been away from her phone at the time so I had left a message to say that, because of illness, I would be unable to keep my appointment on that day. The person who had left the message on my phone had called to tell me that she had received the message intended for my dentist. Not only that but she, a person unknown to me, in a vibrant cheery voice, went on to say that her phone number was very similar to that of my dentist then added her hope that I would soon be feeling better. The kindness of her act was indeed appreciated by me. My dental appointment had been made with my convenience having been considered as far as was possible. What an ingrate I would have appeared to be if my dentist had never got my message of cancellation. I shudder to think of the possibility of never having known that my first call had never been received at his office. Thank you, new friend, for making a call from which you had nothing to gain and I had much. The world is a kinder, gentler place because of you. Your call did, indeed, brighten my day and save me from appearing to be inconsiderate of my dentist's time.. Not everyone does thoughtful things without promise of personal reward. Some time ago I sent money by mail in the form of a bank draft. It so happened that the recipient had not notified me of a change of address so she did not get the letter. When we discovered why, she went to her previous address to inquire if the letter might be there. The present residents told her they threw away any mail that was not addressed to them. They never bothered to return to sender or drop it back into the mail with the note: not at this address. By contrast, the kind people who currently live at my previous address have forwarded the few pieces of mail that still turn up occasionally. They could simply pitch it, too, but don’t. We are blessed to have people in the world who think beyond themselves in consideration of benefits for others.


barded by suggestions to get on the Internet for banking, for utility payments, for ingoing and outgoing transactions, and for paying taxes. On the other hand, about every week – sometimes every second day – one hears about more sophisticated ways that accounts and communications are being hacked into – internationally. Some of these have been able to access deleted messages. There have also been warnings, in police columns, and from some telephone companies, about how to avoid new frauds; how to clean a computer being discarded; what care to be taken with credit card purchases, etc. I have known some who have had identities stolen, via credit cards or online. Usually

it has taken weeks for them to clear everything that has been lost or compromised – and sometimes not everything has been recovered. Credit card companies apparently are very helpful. Otherwise? Is there, or will there be, antihacking insurance? There is a bit of irony in being urged to go online for everything. It reduces the cost to the sender, but increases the cost and risk to the receiving party. It is he or she who pays for computer ink, paper, replacement, and the task of checking for accuracy. In a way, this goes back to the days before prepaid postage stamps – centuries ago now – when the receiver of a letter, etc., had to pay for the cost of transmission. Vincent E. Eriksson Camrose

Whither Augustana? With a school year wrapping up and having just delivered my annual Report to the Community, I’ve naturally been thinking about what comes next at Augustana. I know this is a question that interests many in our community as well. Many local citizens have asked me about the budgetary challenges facing postsecondary education. It’s premature to predict the outcome, but I confess that I am troubled. Having come to Alberta from the United States, I have seen first-hand the disasters that ensue when government begins to disinvest in public higher education, when universities come to be seen as serving the narrow purpose of workforce development and economic growth, when the arts and humanities are viewed as being of lesser value than so-called practical programs, when bureaucrats begin to sacrifice academic diversity and access to postsecondary education on the altar of efficiency. This is the world I left behind in my former home, Maine. And it is the situation across much of the U.S., in states from Maine south to Florida and west to California. I hope they provide an object lesson to help guide our discourse here in Alberta in very different directions. In the meantime, I have been focussing much of my attention on other trends in postsecondary education that I believe force us to ask what it will take for our institutions to remain relevant and essential. For example, with everything that is happening in the world of technology, with developments such as MOOCs (massive open online courses) and free on-line educational materials such as those provided by Khan Academy (http: //www.khanacademy. org), why will students in the future – perhaps as soon as 2020 – even need to come or want to come to a brick and mortar campus? Augustana,

Second Thought

Allen Berger, Dean, Augustana Campus, University of Alberta

just like other university campuses, will need to have a compelling answer to this question. Fortunately, I believe it is human-scale, residential campuses like Augustana that are best positioned to provide a persuasive response. Our advantage is that we already offer what the internet cannot and will likely never be good at providing – one-onone relationships with caring faculty mentors; learning through in-depth discussion and problem-solving with peers; rich opportunities to apply and test learning in community settings or through guided undergraduate research; well-designed and diverse programs to help young people navigate a pathway to responsible adulthood and citizenship; etc. But Augustana will still need to adapt and change. As I think about the conversations we need to have about our future, two general themes come to mind. The first is value-added. In a world where students will be able to access content through highly effective lectures, mini-presentations, simulations, and games online, what value will

professors add in face-to-face classes? For the most part I do not believe faculty will be needed to deliver content. Hence the 50-minute lecture will become a thing of the past. Instead, I believe professors will (many at Augustana already do) rely on pedagogical approaches that emphasize the evaluation and discussion of content, the application of material to new contexts (especially place-based local contexts), the development of higher-order thinking and writing skills, group problemsolving, and the development and exploration of interdisciplinary connections. The second topic we will need to focus on is something I call the course fetish, in other words our tendency in post-secondary education to treat the free-standing course as an organizational unit that receives unquestioning acceptance, respect, even reverence. Why does learning, why does the student experience, I increasingly wonder, need to be organized into relatively disconnected 14-week experiences, each involving two or three relatively short meetings per week, each valued at three credits, and each taught by a lone professor? In the future, there will be courses galore on the internet. Students will be able to collect certificates of completion like Easter eggs in a basket or like Boy Scout merit badges. So, I wonder, how will teaching and learning be different on a residential campus? Part of the answer, I believe, is that what we will offer will be a far more integrated experience. Our challenge now is to figure out what new structures and patterns of organization will allow us to deliver such an experience with maximum effectiveness. I don’t have all the answers. But I do believe Augustana has a community of talented teachers and scholars who are ready to have the needed conversations.

Awards search narrowed By Murray Green

CHALLENGE CUP WINNERS It ended with a tie for first at the Big Valley Floor Curling Challenge Cup on March 27. The Bawlf team and Erskine club finished with three wins and no losses. A four-end playoff was held to determine the winner. However, it ended in a tie once again. In a draw to the button playoff from each skip, the Bawlf team of Dennis and Dianne Hartman, Kathleen Tennant and Ed Fuller from Camrose captured the title. Second place went to the Erskine team of Marvin and Judy Peperkorn, Marianne Braybrook and Fern Borgel. Other teams competing were from Rimbey, Big Valley, Bittern Lake, Lacombe, Camrose and Wetaskiwin. Presenting the trophy is the Area 8 director, Fern Borgel from Stettler.

Alberta’s Early Learning and Child Care Professional Awards of Excellence has narrowed the search to 40 finalists, who inspire children and families. These individuals work in child care, early childhood services or Parent Link Centres across the province. Two of the best care workers live in the local area. Shauna Moore of Sedgewick was nominated in the licensed family day home care category and Jolene Doig of Camrose works with special needs children. More than 140 nominees were scored on their leadership, creativity, innovation and collaboration through work; and contribution to positive and stimulating learning environments that motivate children and families to exceed their own expectations. A selection committee of past recipients and other well-respected early learning and child care professionals now has the difficult job of determining the successful recipients in each of the 14 categories. These individuals will be honoured at a special celebration in Calgary on May 10. “Being nominated in 2012 was an honour, and I was overwhelmed with joy to be selected as the successful recipient in the urban preschool category,” said Nancy Fritsche from the Discovery Time Preschool program. “Now experiencing the opportunity of sitting on the selection committee and benefitting from reading so many spectacular nomination packages truly humbles me and reinforces how rewarding it is to be chosen among so many worthy nominees.

Seniors' Chat By Alan Richards

Alan Richards is a member of the Camrose Seniors’ Coalition and of the Ministry Team at Camrose United Church. At my kitchen window, I watch as the land emerges from under the snow and think of when the snow arrived. A pastor blessed with a sabbatical, and conscious of my own aging journey, I had time last fall to meet and talk with groups of people who are my elders and senior to me in many ways. It has been a lot of snow! There’s plenty left as I write these words. (Much less, I hope, by the time you read them!) Growing older often seems to mean getting snowed under by a world hurrying to change before it catches up to itself. It can mean getting snowed under by communication and medical technologies, a changing economy, and changing communities. By other changes too: a fall, cancer, dementia, a move, or isolation and loneliness. There’s lots of snow! Beyond the window, patches of grass and of my neighbor’s stubble fields are larger today than they were yesterday.

Does getting old mean our lives shrink as our bodies do from the wide world to a house to a room to a grave? Can aging mean lives that grow larger even as our bodies grow older? Tom is retired and lives alone. He swims three times a week, does odd jobs for “the older folk� who are his neighbors, texts his great-grandchildren, and has begun to deliver meals-onwheels. “It’s not about what you retire from,� he tells me; “it’s about what you retire to.� Dick enjoyed farming and good health until he was 76. Now 80, he has survived

Mother’s Da y Idea!

heart surgery and a hip replacement. Each morning, after coffee with friends in the dining room of the lodge where he lives, he writes another story for his family about growing up on his parents’ farm. “I’m like a bottle of aged wine,� he says; “it’s time I took the cork out and let others get a taste.� Harriet wanted to see China and never could. Now she and a life-long friend are preparing to go. Beside her coffee cup is a history of modern China, an audio book, (“Teach Yourself Mandarin Chinese�), and a book about real Chinese cooking.

Wine, Women and Money event moves

The Camrose Fire Department will be hosting its spring pancake breakfast on Sunday, May 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Fire Hall. Although the funds raised from the community event usually go towards charities such as STARS, burn camps, Fill the Boot for Muscular Dystrophy and the Stollery Hospital, the department has added another demand for the funds. "We have had very successful breakfasts in the past, but we want to make them bigger and better all of the time," said breakfast chair Brett Read. "Some people have seen the long line-ups and then driven by. We wanted to change that, so we have purchased four more grills to get people in and out faster. Unfortunately, we had to get rid of another grill because it is past its prime." The grills have served the community well. "Our grills have cooked a lot of pancakes over the years and we are in the process of replacing some of them. We need at least one more. Once we replace the old grills, then more money can go towards projects in the community," said Brett, a volunteer firefighter. "The breakfasts that we hold twice a year (the other one is hosted during Fire Prevention Week in October) are a good way for our members to get to know the community and for them to know us as well," added Brett. "Nearly all of our members will be out helping. It is a good opportunity for us to open our hall and trucks for people to see. The children like climbing in them and we have a member at each vehicle to answer any questions people may have." Brett said the members enjoy cooking for people, while at the same time visiting people and former members. "The community supports us really well, so this is a way to give back. Hopefully, we get a good turn-out again," said Brett. The department currently has 44 fire fighter volunteers and three staff members. Children under seven attending the breakfast are admitted free. The price for under 13 is $4 and 13 and up is $7. The breakfast includes pancakes, sausages, eggs and refreshments.

The first Wine, Women and Money event was such a success last year that is moved to the Green Valley Gardens on May 11. From left to right, Heather Ryan, Tracy Brandingen, Kjeryn Davis, Jessica Glimm and Carol Davis are really to celebrate the event. By Murray Green

Last year the first Wine, Women and Money event was such a success that the venue had to be changed this year. "We had the Monte Carlo Restaurant packed last year, but we have had such a huge interest in the event that we expanded to the Green Valley Gardens location," said organizer Kjeryn Davis. Wine, Women and Money will be held at the Green Valley Gardens in Camrose on May 11,

beginning at 6:30 p.m. Wine will begin to flow at 7 p.m. "There will be discounts on flowers throughout the evening, silent auction items, door prizes, gardening tips, wine and appetizers," said Kjeryn. "There will be a lawyer, a realtor, a living benefits specialist and a financial planner there to educate you on increasing your overall net worth and how to protect some of those assets you have worked so hard to earn," explained Kjeryn. Jewellery specialists Stella

and Dot will also be there adding a little sparkle to the evening and donating the sales back to the charity of choice, the Camrose Women’s Shelter. "There are only 100 tickets available and it is a great Mother's Day gift idea," added Kjeryn. For more information contact Kjeryn on Facebook, or call 780-679-7890. Tickets are now available in advance for $20, or you can purchase them for $25 at the door.

The three-tenor performing group Tenore will be bringing an important message of hope to their Alberta fans in a performance at Grace Lutheran Church in Camrose May 10. Tenore events have been referred to as Gaither meets Groban with their mixture of inspirational songs and classical hymns. "Tenore performs inspirational music and hymns that everyone knows and even loves at times to sing along with," states a news release. "They have performed in concerts for over 60,000 people and made multiple national television appearances on 100 Huntley Street and Crystal Cathedral's Hour of Power." The performance will begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:15. Admission is by voucher, at no charge and available from the Grace Lutheran Church office (780-672-2092) and at the door, while supplies last. All people holding vouchers will be given seating priority. There will be a freewill offering taken during the concert to support Tenore’s ministry. Tenore is touring Canada to highlight the work being done with Watoto, a holistic childcare ministry birthed out of a local church in Kampala, Uganda’s capital, and to inspire others with their message. Tenore members Mark David Williams, Jason Catron and Kevin Pauls recently returned from a week at Watoto, where they reminded the women and children that they will never walk alone in their journey to change the future and bring about a new generation of leaders. "Our overall mission is to bring joy and healing through our music and to get our hands dirty helping women and children," said Tenore founder Jill Anne Siemens, from Victoria, B.C. Tenore was honoured with three 2011 Gospel Music Awards for GMA National Fan Choice, Traditional/Classical Album of the Year, and Traditional/Classical Song of the Year. The group donates 10 per cent of all CD sales to Watoto as it seeks to rescue an individual, raise each one to be a leader and rebuild a nation. Watoto Children's Ministries was founded by Gary and Marilyn Skinner in 1994 in response to the plight of Africa's millions of children orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS and rescued child soldiers. The ministry is currently caring for over 2,600 Ugandan children with the hope that these children will become future leaders of Uganda and Africa. The model of Watoto also reaches vulnerable women in Uganda whose lives have been ravaged by war and disease. This unique ministry comprises four children's villages, three homes for babies, two primary schools, a high school and a vocational school.

Purple martin landlords watching for locators


UNRESERVED ACREAGE AND WELDING BUSINESS AUCTION SALE Ryco Industries Ltd. and Henry Rylander – Nisku, AB Directions: Being from the South Nisku/International Airport turnoff on Hwy 2, go four miles east on Airport Road to RR 243, then 1/4 mile south to Clearwater Estates. Lot #30

SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2013 – 10:00 a.m. Watch For Signs • GST will be charged where applicable • Lunch Available


The Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society is inviting central Alberta purple martin landlords to be on the lookout for some special “backpackers” arriving at their colonies this season. These backpacks, called geolocators, carry with them very valuable scientific data – the previously unknown story of where this individual martin has travelled and overwintered since it was banded last summer in Camrose. Last summer, Dr. Kevin Fraser from York University came to Alberta to deploy light level geolocators in both Camrose and at Ellis Bird Farm. A total of 28 birds were retrofitted in the Camrose area. The Alberta project is a partnership among York University (Toronto), the Camrose group, the Purple Martin Conservancy (Pigeon Lake) and the Ellis Bird Farm. Funding for the Camrose component of the project was provided by local martin landlords and York University. Regional banding experts supervise the trapping operation and oversee aging/sexing the birds. Light level geolocators, whose use has been pioneered by York University, detect and record maximum light intensities at set intervals. From these light levels, researchers are able to determine latitude and longitude and thus the daily movements of each bird. Geolocators have been successfully deployed on several purple martin colonies in the eastern states and on the west coast. However, the migration patterns and overwintering locations of “our” Alberta birds (the most northerly population) remains unknown. Until, we hope, this year!

The challenge is to now find the “backpacked” birds. While we expect that most returnees will come back to the locations at which they were outfitted with backpacks, there is a good chance that some individuals may return to other colonies in central Alberta. We are therefore inviting all purple martin landlords to pay very close attention to their birds as soon as they arrive. The two small antennae may be seen, but close observation will be needed to determine if the bird is wearing the backpack. All of the Camrose and area birds were also tagged with a yellow aluminum band. If a backpacked bird is observed, we invite you to call Dr. Glen Hvenegaard immediately (780-679-1574) or send him an email (glen. We will immediately visit your colony and trap the bird to carefully record the band number and gently snip off the backpack. We hope to capture all returned birds as soon as they arrive back on territory to reduce the chance that the bird might be taken by a predator. Our group will be deploying geolocators again this season. If you would like to watch or participate in the process, feel free to call Glen. We hope to have migration data from returned birds available at the Purple Martin Festival on June 23, 2013, at the Stoney Creek Centre (http://www.tourismcamrose. com/feature-events/purple-martin-festival/).

Augustana's Founders' Hall to receive upgrades By Dan Jensen

Augustana's iconic Founders' Hall is about to get an upgrade. Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger told those attending the faculty's spring soiree last week that the U of A administration has provided financial support for a two-year renovation project scheduled to begin this summer. The project will refinish the exterior with 21st century materials while maintaining the architectural character, add an elevator and modernize and redesign the interior. "For a significant part of our history it was our only building," said Dr. Berger, "and it has served us well for over 100 years. But it is also showing its age and we have become increasingly alarmed by its deterioration." Augustana will also be upgrading two or three additional classrooms. "Having discovered last year that most of our classrooms are

overcrowded with too many desks and are set up to support only one style of pedagogy – lecturing – my first financial commitment was to upgrade furnishings and to redesign classrooms to support pedagogical alternatives that prioritize group work and active student engagement," said Dr. Berger. "As a result, last summer we upgraded and transformed two general purpose classrooms. The reviews from students and faculty have been overwhelmingly positive." A project that continues to be on the books is a new and renovated science/classroom complex. "This project, likely a $45 million endeavour, is among the university's highest priorities," said Dr. Berger. "My number one job, it seems to me, is to try to get this project done before the end of my tenure here as dean." Augustana received approval for the science/classroom complex from the U of A Facility Development Committee after

submitting a general space program, a review of what kinds of academic spaces it will need in the next five years. Other projects on the horizon include a sustainability research station that Augustana wishes to build in collaboration with Alberta Parks and Camrose County at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park, and a space where the growing population of aboriginal students can gather to practice smudging ceremonies or host other students. Dr. Berger reported that the Camrose Performing Arts Centre is on track for an anticipated opening in the spring of 2014. "This building, as most of you know, is the product of a shared dream and an exciting collaborative effort involving the U of A, the City of Camrose, and Camrose County. Negotiations when I first arrived at Augustana weren't always easy, but they were certainly amicable, and in the end we got them done. As a

result we now have a joint board of governors for CPAC, a collaborative fund-raising effort that has raised in less than one year $1.5 million, with $3.5 million still to go." Augustana has crossed the threshold of 1,000 students and is on its way to an agreed-upon target of 1,200 students by the year 2017. "We will get there by improving our own retention rates and through articulation agreements with valuable community college partner schools such as Red Deer College, Grande Prairie Regional College, Maskwacis Cultural College, and perhaps Medicine Hat College and Lakeland College," said Dr. Berger. Augustana's long-term enrolment goal is 1,600 to 2,000 students. "At this size, Augustana would gain important economies of scale and we would be able to offer students the minimum numbers and diversity of faculty

in every academic program that I believe are necessary to claim top five excellence for ourselves, so we're not just riding the coat tails of the North Campus. To get to this enrolment level I believe we need to ask how can we position Augustana as the baccalaureate institution in Alberta most attuned to serving the future leadership needs of rural and Aboriginal communities. We can't afford for this exclusively to be our reputation but I believe it will need to be a central feature of our reputation. It will also need to be a focus of our planning conversations during the coming year. That planning, I've increasingly come to believe, may need to involve new collaborations with other U of A faculties, not unlike the very successful collaborations we already have with the Faculties of Nursing and Rehab Medicine, both of whom, I am pleased to say, are sending virtually all of their Camrose graduates into jobs in rural communities."

Augustana and U of A are good partners By Dan Jensen

The University of Alberta is better with the Augustana campus in its fold, says U of A acting provost and vice president academic Dr. Ferguson-Pell. "Augustana really brings features to the overall package of programs and activities," said Dr. Ferguson-Pell at the Augustana spring soiree April 23. "We look to Augustana as being a place that represents excellence in terms of the undergraduate experience. Programs right across campus can learn from what we do here at Augustana. Be reassured of the recognition of the outstanding work you are doing and how much central administration and the U of A as a whole appreciates the Augustana campus." Dr. Ferguson-Pell said Augustana enables students to study in a residential liberal arts environment while still being connected to a very well endowed main campus university. "The connectivity between Augustana and the main campus creates unique opportunities for students to receive a liberal arts education and then go on and specialize in graduate programs that are offered within the same university but on our main campus. That connectivity is a very special attribute of the U of A that very few other universities can claim." Dr. Ferguson-Pell said students benefit from the good relationship Augustana has with the community of Camrose. "I know from a number of experiences how tightly connected the community of Camrose is with the Augustana campus and how both gain enormous strength and value from that relationship." Dr. Ferguson-Pell said the U of A is proud of the work being done by the Chester Ronning Centre to promote in-depth discussion of difficult issues related to the role of religion in public life. "The centre here is unique certainly in the U of A, probably unique to Alberta. It is a centre and focal point of really excellent thinking and challenging approaches to some of the more difficult interactions between religion and social issues of the modern day."

Augustana's Founders' Hall will be receiving a fresh new look this summer.

University looking at ways to address budget cuts By Dan Jensen

The University of Alberta will be spending the next year looking at how it can minimize the impact on its resources and bridge the gap between what it needs to operate and what it receives from the provincial government. U of A acting provost and vice president academic Dr. Martin Ferguson-Pell told those attending the Augustana spring soiree last week the university is working on a deficit budget, which the government has indicated a willingness to support, that will remove base funding or ongoing permanent funding of certain programs and use onetime money or cash. Dr. Ferguson-Pell also noted

that work has started on a plan that will enable the U of A to achieve a balanced and sustainable long term budget three years out from today. "We are playing with time. I will be perfectly honest with you. We are looking at how we can slow this process down, make sure it is a thoughtful process, so the things we have to do will have a minimal long term impact on the excellence of the U of A. "We will do everything in our power to maintain and protect excellence at the U of A." Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger said he is mystified and deeply troubled by the recent decisions of the provincial gov-

ernment with regard to post-secondary education. "Having come to Alberta from the United States I have seen first hand the disasters that ensue when governments begin to disinvest in higher education, when universities come to be seen as serving the narrow purpose of workforce development and economic growth, when the arts are viewed as being of lesser value than so-called practical programs, when bureaucrats begin to sacrifice academic diversity and access to post-secondary education on the altar of efficiency. This, quite frankly was the world I left behind in Maine. And it pains me deeply that this may be the world we are enter-

ing in Alberta. Fortunately, I believe we have leaders in the university who understand the risks and who can persuasively make the case for a different vision." Dr. Ferguson-Pell said one thing that is important to the U of A is growing the enrolment at Augustana. "If there is one thing we can do more than anything else to help to secure the long term and outstanding future of Augustana it is to make sure that we get enrolment continuing on the growth trajectory that we have seen over the last few years." Dr. Ferguson-Pell said great progress is being made at Augus-

tana in building links to aboriginal communities. "I think that some of the leadership you are seeing from Augustana in this area is important leadership for the whole of the U of A, and we hope that you (Augustana) are able to continue to do the great work you are doing in that area." Dr. Berger said a priority for Augustana is to generate new revenue streams, not just during the eight months of the academic year but also during the period from May to August. "Our campus lies mostly dormant during those months, so what can we do about that? How can we fix that? We need creative answers."

Hike for Hospice

For better results from your advertising budget, count on the information source relied on for up to 27,500 people every week…

By Dan Jensen

The Hospice Society of Camrose and District is giving area residents the opportunity to get some exercise and contribute to a worthy cause. The Society will be holding its first ever Hike for Hospice at the Camrose Ski Valley May 5. "We're going to start at the Stoney Creek Centre and hike through the ski hill area from 2 to 5," said Hospice Society of Camrose and District board member Wanita Toews. "We're going to have the 12 members of the board there, but any hikers are welcome." The hike has been organized by the Society as a way to raise funds and tell people in the community about what it does. Anyone who wants to collect pledges may obtain a form by contacting Toews at 780-678-6859. "We are not people to do that but it would be very welcome," said Toews. Money raised from the Hike for Hospice will be used to help build a free-standing hospice in Camrose that would offer physical, social, emotional and spiritual care in a community-based, home-like setting for individuals who are dying and for their loved ones. Quality hospice palliative care offers a range of services that include physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and practical support to people with life-threatening illnesses, and to their families. It focuses on what people need and want at any given time, both prior to death and during bereavement. The Hospice Society of Camrose and District meets the last Wednesday of every month above Not Just Hats, at 4872-50 Street.

Augustana offers summer strength conditioning camp By Murray Green

The Augustana Fitness Centre is offering a Battle River Hockey Plus Dryland Hockey Training and Conditioning Program that will take young hockey players to the next level. The conditioning program is running from the first week of June through August this summer. It is a customized off-ice hockey training program for peewee, bantam and midget athletes designed to strengthen and improve hockey-specific skills during the post-season months. It will also provide fundamental education about fitness and training. Athletes will train four times per week in groups of three or four. This allows for maximized attention from nationally certified trainers, Jeremy Beirnes and Harrison Tribble, and fosters the development of teamwork skills. The unique length and intensity of this program also allows athletes to obtain maximum fitness gains over the summer months. "One of the reasons we moved to Augustana is to give the players experience in a nonintimidating gym environment," said Jeremy, who plays for the Augustana Vikings and is also a former Camrose Kodiaks' player. "There are times that the gym at the EnCana Arena gets quite busy. There are a lot of older people in the gym and big athletic guys, so they can be intimidated and they are not sure where to be or how to do some things. They just don't have the comfort level. Over here they can get comfortable, know what equipment to use and not have that intimidation factor." The smaller groups make a big difference for young players. "We keep them to groups of three

"I know when I was younger it was nice to have older guys around to look up to and learn from. We want to be there for them and help them improve," added Jeremy. "This year we are thrilled to have a new, exclusive training space for our hockey program in the “Vikings Valhalla” on the Augustana Campus, University of Alberta here in Camrose," said Deanna Roper, Augustana Fitness Centre supervisor. "With the support of our title sponsor, Battle River Hockey Plus and our power sponsors, Canadian Tire and McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet, we have been able to renovate and outfit our new space with new specialized equipment for hockey specific training," she Murray Green, Camrose Booster added.

Election amendments make it harder to vote By Murray Green

Camrose County council expressed its frustration with the proposed amendments with the Local Authorities Election Act at the April 9 meeting. The provincial government will be making it harder to vote in an effort to stop people from stuffing ballet boxes and voting several times. "Every voter is now required to submit proof of identity and residence in order to vote. That means we could have a voter list, but because we have multiple voting stations, it would be impossible to have," explained county administrator Steve Gerlitz. "Elected authorities have the option, by bylaw, to expand on the types of identification that the returning officer can accept for purposes of satisfying the basic requirement. We need to decide in what direction we should go in order to proceed." A voting list would have to appear at each station, but unless the stations are in direct communication, voting officials won't know if a person has voted at another station. "With a voting list, a person comes in to vote and their name is taken off the eligible list," added Steve. "If you have multiple voting lists, you don't know where that person has previously voted. So what we are looking at, if you still want multiple voting stations, which I'm sure you

do, is that the residents carry a photo ID (passport or driver's license) and they have to prove their current residence, which is their address." However, passports and driver's licences show a rural address of where they pick up their mail, not necessarily where they live. "The returning officers will not know if you live in the county, or not. We could have each voter carry their tax notice, but each voter in the family would have to have a copy of the tax notice. It is the only document to have their legal land description. The other thing is that not all residents receive a tax notice. It might be under just one name," Steve explained further. "I will be attending an election training seminar and this discussion will be coming up." Councillor Brian Austrom brought up the fact that some people don't have a driver's licence and a lot of seniors don't have a passport. "If they don't drive, or no longer drive, that person won't have photo ID to show," said councillor Brian. "My neighbour rents and doesn't receive a tax notice." The government does issue photo identification cards for nondrivers. Other items with proper addresses such as insurance policies, mortgages and utility bills could be accepted by the chief electoral officer. Prior to June 30, county council can pass a bylaw to

determine what information is required for voters. "The minimum is photo ID and proof of residence, but we can make it more than that," said Steve. "What they (government) are basically doing is stopping people from voting." Councillor Doug Lyseng indicated "We should be making it easier to vote, not making it harder. We could have a lower turnout than we already have." Councillor Vern Peterson wanted to the know the background of why the changes were being made. "Did somebody in an office somewhere decide to change things to justify their job?," he asked. "Because they have criminal activity in the big urban centres the rural people in the whole province are hit with this. Once again the rural people get the hammer on the head because of the problems in the large urban centres. Why are we fixing something that doesn't need fixing? I find it so frustrating that it happens over and over again. It is going to affect our ratepayers to the point where our voters are going to say the heck with it and not even go out and vote," added Vern. "I think it is a shame. This is a reflection of the provincial government that they keep doing this to us again and again. Once again rural Alberta gets knocked in the head and I'm sick and tired of it."

Councillor Brian reported that it is not just an urban issue. "We have had issues in the rural area. Someone from the city can say they own land in the rural area and they want to vote. We can't deny that even if they live in the City of Camrose, or the Village of Bawlf. These changes are being made because someone may want to vote outside of their area." Councillor Vern still insisted that the province is reacting to some people causing problems. "We are changing things because of a couple of people who vote twice in exchange for hundreds who might not vote now because it will be a hassle. It doesn't make sense," he added and indicated he won't be running again. "It is bloody time we came out on the side of honest people. I still believe 99.9 per cent of the people in this county are honest. I don't understand why we have a government that treats us like we are all crooks." Reeve Don Gregorwich jokingly said "This wrecks my campaign speech of vote early, and vote often." The term of office for local elected officials has been increased to four years. Previously, municipal elections were held every three years. This year, the general election will be held on Oct. 21. The next municipal election will follow on Oct. 16, 2017.

Council gives first reading to automated voting By Dan Jensen

City council has given first reading to an automated voting system bylaw that will prescribe the form of the ballot, the directions for the marking of the ballot by the elector and the directions for voting procedures to be used and followed. City manager Damian Herle told council, April 15, the City is trying to move forward with approval for electronic voting for the 2013 municipal election. "Electronic voting is nothing new and has been around for a lot of years," said Herle. "Most municipalities in Alberta use an automated voting system so you can actually vote with a machine. There are many checks and balances in place, and it has proven to be an effective and efficient voting tool." City of Camrose corporate and protective services general manager Kim Isaak told council City staff is still waiting for more information about what is required under the automated voting system for a rejected ballot. "We want to make sure we understand that fully before we put it into the bylaw," explained Isaak. Councillor Max Lindstrand expressed some caution on the automated voting system. "There isn't anything more precious in democracy than a person's vote," said Lindstrand. "My question is, have we done any testing on this and are we completely confident it will work as outlined?" Herle said the number of municipalities in Alberta that use a manual counting system is becoming smaller.

"I am not sure if council remembers but during the last election we did have some workers working until the very wee hours of the following morning. There is a lot of work involved in terms of manually counting the votes." Isaak said the City will have on site assistance from the company that provides the automated voting systems on the day of the municipal election in October. She added that there is a plan to do a training session very soon for municipalities in the region that are going to the new system. Councillor John Howard said the automated voting system would work in a very similar manner to the machines that are used to do scoring on standardized tests. "You mark your ballot and it goes through an automated machine." Mayor Marshall Chalmers said it is important that the public not get confused and think the automated voting system is the same as internet voting, which, though it has been looked at by the cities of Airdrie and Edmonton, has not been approved by the provincial government for the 2013 election. Councillor Gerry Galenza urged City administration to look at the internet voting system for the election four years down the road. "Things change very quickly. We don't want to be the last one or the first one (to do this). There are some positives about it. It was rejected by the City of Edmonton but I am sure it is not going to go away with the social media and everything else."

Bike Rodeo attendance up By Murray Green

The number of children participating in the Bike Rodeo tripled this year at the Max McLean Arena on April 20. This event was hosted by the Camrose Family Resource Centre Association to help promote bike safety and awareness in the community in a fun family way. About 72 children completed a course and learned valuable safety tips along the way. Last year 23 children participated in the bike rodeo. The majority of the children who passed the safety course this year were between four and eight years old. "Porter Dyer, 7, who attends Chester Ronning School, was the lucky winner of the Supercycle Clutch bicycle and helmet," said organizer Andrea Roth. "He was very excited to pick up his new bike at the Community Centre." Porter had to complete a helmet fitting, bike tune-up, safety course, obstacle course, and a bike quiz to be entered to win this bike and helmet. "He did a great job and congratulations to all our bike rodeo participants, who worked hard to learn about bikes and road safety," added Andrea.

Four-year-old Mia Zylka won a Supercycle bike donated by The Brick in Camrose. Mia received a gift certificate from Domino's pizza and a Disney Princess helmet in her raffle prize package that her dad Darryl won for her. Camrose Police Service Cst. Adam Belanger and Cst. Jim Jones, from the Camrose RCMP, led the safety course and taught children hand signals and bike and road rules prior to taking them through a road course with stop signs and turns. "It was a great success. Thanks to the Royal Bank staff and their families for helping with the Bike and Trike Consignment Sale; Lucy Ernst from Public Health and Becky Oxton from Alberta Transportation for all the helmet fittings; Sebastien D'Eschambeault from The Brick (Camrose franchise) for donating a brand new girl and boy bike for our raffle draws and to Konrad Schellenberg from Green Gear for all the bike tune-ups and for giving all our participants a cute bear or crocodile bike mirror as a prize for completing the five bike rodeo stations. The City of Camrose provided the arena space and leisure services staff also helped us set up the event," said Andrea.


Winners in the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre Easter colouring contest were: (left to right) Avery Blaker, first prize in the age three to six category; Dawsyn Calhoon, second prize in the age three to six category; Brooklyn Pattullo, second prize in the age seven to nine category; and Kathleen Clark, second prize in the age 10 to 12 category. Presenting Easter baskets to the winners were (left to right, back) Irene Froese, office assistant at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre, Shannon Saby, judge, and Jean Cofell, judge. Missing from the photo were Ashley Burnett, first prize in the age seven to nine category, and Abby Yarpaski, first prize in the age 10 to 12 category.

Golden opportunity Alvin Eyolfson from Camrose is one very happy man. He is sporting a gold medal won in the over 55 men’s 7.5 km cross-country skiing event at the Alberta 55 plus Winter Games held in Calgary. He has never had this experience before in this sport. Unfortunately, he was unable to participate in the 15 km race, so he will leave that one until the 2015 Winter Games. Alvin had been working hard, running mini marathons this past summer, to get his legs and body into shape for the cross-country event. He received some help from Garry Gibson, the master at waxing from the Camrose Club, which contributed to the very successful showing of the Camrose Ski Club.

She was an avid reader, loved her crossword puzzles and she took pride in beating her daughtersin-law at a game of Scrabble.

Also, Grace and Maynard took a trip of a lifetime when they travelled to Hallingdal, Norway in 1996 – both of her parents’ origins.   Left to mourn her passing are her children Gary (Jane) Manchester of Sylvan Lake, and David (Marg) Manchester of Cochrane, and Darlene Manchester of Deep Cove, BC; six grandchildren; eight greatgrandchildren; one brother Lloyd Julson of Wetaskiwin; two sisters Lee Kleckner of Delta, BC and Joyce Kiddell of Camrose.

Charlie Killam School conducts health fair By Dan Jensen

A Health Fair at Charlie Killam School April 26 gave students the opportunity to participate in activities and sessions that focused on the benefits of active lifestyles, wellness and nutrition. Students attended three activity sessions, two wellness sessions and one nutritional session. "We received a good response from the students," said Health Fair co-coordinator Ryan Galenza. "They were a little apprehensive at first about getting away from their reggular routine but they were respectful, responsive and eager to hear the messages that the presenters were giving." Planning for this year's Health Fair began in December, with organizers getting in touch with presenters from not just Camrose but across the province, as well as local sponsors who donated food and gifts. "We are very grateful to everyone who took time out of their schedules to make this day a success," said Galenza. As an Ever Active School, Charlie Killam School is working with staff, students, parents and the community to provide students with a wide variety of healthy activities, opportunities to experience activities to which they may not have had exposure in the past, knowledge about health, nutrition and wellness issues, and activities that exist in the community related to health and physical activities. Sponsors of the Health Fair were: Wildrose Co-op, Edo Japan, Starbucks, Superstore, Walmart, Pizza Hut, Boston Pizza and Channel 10.

Britta Boden, from the Augustana Fitness Centre, led students through an active fitness class that combined strength and flexibility.

Becky Oxton led a session titled Are You Ready to Drive?

Dalen Crete practices his golf swing in a session offered by the Camrose Golf Course.

Blaine Hironka gathers jelly beans in a session titled Mental Health Matters. The jelly beans were used as a metaphor to teach the importance of filling other people's buckets.

Justine Leverick learned how much a fire hose weighs.

Kyle Nickel takes aim in a course on target shooting.

Tanner Kowal and Scott Woods did a bit of shadow boxing in a session led by Sylvio Fex.

Family Feud sparks interest in fireworks By Jane Cherry-Lemire Camrose Arts Director Do you ever watch game shows and think “I know that One?” If the answer to the above question is a yes then here’s your chance to play "The Feud!" The Camrose and Area Canada Day Committee has drummed up a fun way to raise money towards the local Canada Day celebrations and fireworks this year. The Feud is based on the TV show Family Feud and will be hosted by professional game show hosts. The event will be held at The Canadian Brewhouse on May 4. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner and a beverage (included in the price of a ticket). Ticket holders will be free to choose a $15 meal from the menu. A silent auction will also be part of the event and opportunities to bid on some great items will take place throughout the night. The Feud will begin at about 7:30 p.m. We are encouraging people to put together teams of four in order to play. If people do not have a team we will help create one. Those who want a 100 per cent chance of playing and want prime seats can expect to pay $75 each for a ticket; those who want to have a 50 per cent chance of playing can expect to pay $50 each for a ticket; and those who prefer to eat, drink and only be part of the audience and fun experience can expect to pay $30 for a ticket. All proceeds after expenses from ticket sales will go to the Canada Day celebrations and fireworks. All players will win a prize and the winning team will be awarded with $400 in Canadian Brewhouse gift certificates. There will also be a prize for the most creative team outfits. Businesses are encouraged to consider putting together teams to provide a fun night out for staff. This may also provide an opportunity for businesses to promote themselves. If businesses want to get in on the action but cannot attend the event they can become a sponsor and have a presence at the event on the screen and in the program. Space is limited so we encourage you to purchase tickets and register your team by April 26. Tickets will be available at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre at 4809-52 Street. For more details on how to register your team or to become a sponsor, call Jane at 780-672-9949.


Huseby competes in Skills Alberta Submitted

Madison Huseby, of Bawlf, won the gold medal in culinary arts for the second straight year at the Regional Skills Alberta event in Vermilion April 26. Madison competed against six other students for the honour of representing her region at the upcoming Skill Alberta competition in Edmonton May 15 and 16 at the Expo Centre. Madison will now compete in a two-day event for a total of seven hours of kitchen work. On day one of the competition Madison will be required to portion two whole chickens into usable parts. She will reserve four chicken breasts for day two and will pan fry them as part of the entree. Continuing on day one, she will also use the chicken backs and wingtips and ribcage to make at least one litre of chicken stock for use on day two. The production of the chicken stock requires adherence to some skills such as the making of a mirepoix and the correct use of a sachet bag and of course the correct application of heat as in boiling, simmering, clarification and reserving. On day one the competition is set to judge the students’ knife skills with precise cuts and knowledge of cooking procedures. The students will have to produce two three-egg omelettes that are required to be filled with a creamed spinach mixture (Florentine). They will also have to produce a tomato salsa to be served with the omelettes as well as a fresh fruit garnish.

Madison Huseby

The salsa offers the judges a chance to scrutinize the precise skills that are used in classical and reconstructed style cooking. All of the cooking students in the provincial competition will be given the same scope so there is a level system for judging the various skills. On day two the students are required to use the stock from day one as a base for a cream of mushroom soup. With the panfried chicken breast they will serve a bouquetière of vegetables consisting of cauliflower floret, carrot bâtonnets and green beans. There is a compulsory blanching and refreshing that must take place and the cuts have to be precise. The vegetables need to be served warm and this is essential. They will also create personalized potato gnocchi and this component allows for some diversity as the young cooks can add their own twist and,

“pop” to the traditional Italian dish. The chicken plate will also be graced with traditional pan gravy. It is important to note that the day two menus are for four servings. The cooks need to present menus for each day describing the food and the techniques used to create their plates. The judges for the most part come from the industry with some of the most accomplished chefs in Edmonton and Calgary participating. Evaluation or judging criteria is as follows: 15 per cent sanitation, 10 per cent organization and product utilization, 25 per cent preparation and technical skill, 15 per cent presentation, 35 per cent taste and required menu components. Many students who begin competition at Grade 10 will continue on until Grade 12 and go forward in the post secondary levels. This is true of many students from the Battle River School Division. In the two short weeks before the provincial competition and one day after the regional event Madison has already had a four-hour debriefing and practice for the provincials. She will have a further nine practices before the event. Madison’s commitment to culinary art is credible and it shows in her work habits and products. Young cooks like Madison fit this bill well and it is worth the trip to Edmonton to visit the skills competition.

Mush Virtual Trek comes to a close By Colleen Lindholm, Camrose Primary Care Network

Congratulations participants of the Camrose PCN 90-day Mush Virtual Trek. You walked, ran, swam, biked, danced and moved. The virtual trek was created to provide a fun way for you to works towards a healthier you and you are well on your way. The 2013 Mush Iditarod Virtual Trek, which began on January 15, had 523 participants joining in this unique fitness challenge – together logging over 260 million steps. You virtually travelled the journey of the Alaskan Iditarod Trail, which not only increased your physical and mental well-being, you received valuable health and fitness tips along your journey. A key partner in the success of this year’s trek is the Augustana Fitness Centre. It has played a substantial role in the success of the trek this year with keeping track of participants' progress on its bulletin board, being a part of the kickoff and wind-up events as well as providing the grand prize of a one-year membership. In partnership with Jalene and Deanna from the Fitness Centre, the PCN is excited to announce this year’s winner, logging 1.2 million steps is Keitha Cunningham. Way to go Keitha – you are an inspiration to us all. To encourage everyone to participate at his or her own fitness levels, the grand prize draw was done a little differently this

year. Every single person who registered in the Mush Virtual Trek was entered into the draw. The more check points each reached throughout the trek journey gave each an entry into the grand prize draw. We really wanted this year’s trek to focus on individual success. We give honorable mentions to the top five finishers: Harvey Litke, Kelly Bauer, Thomas Smith, Veronica Galenza and Jim Kupka. This year’s trek had many participants logging well over two million steps with and

with a few even over three million steps. The Group Challenge of the Mush Trek, supported this year by the Camrose Healthy Lifestyle Coalition, measured the progress of the groups against the progress of other groups within the Trek program. The Group Activity Graph compared activity against other groups in the program based on the percentage of active members for their past seven days. The group challenge took the total of all the steps for the group, and

averaged it by the number of steppers in the group. This way it didn’t matter if the group was large or small, it was all fair. The PCN is pleased to announce the group The Happy Wanderers as the 2013 winners. Members of The Happy Wanderers include Pat Lofvendahl, Bill MaertensPoole, Marlene Maertens-Poole and Wilf Maertens-Poole. “The Camrose Healthy Lifestyle Coalition is proud to support the efforts made by Camrose PCN in promoting healthier living through initia-

tives like Mush. We are also delighted to award the group winners with $500 to further encourage their healthy living needs,” states coalition member Jane Cherry-Lemire. “The Camrose PCN Physician Group, along with our health care provider team, would like to congratulate all Mush participants and celebrate each of their personal successes,” said Stacey Strilchuk, Camrose PCN executive director. “The PCN is very fortunate to be able to collaborate with partners like The Augustana Fitness Centre and The Camrose Healthy Lifestyle Coalition in a way that is meaningful and relevant to individuals in their journey towards health and well-being.” The PCN received a lot of positive feedback on the virtual trek tool – with people using it as a tool to keep them motivated in their fitness activities. To keep the momentum going, the PCN is pleased to announce people will be able to continue using the tool for their own personal fitness journey until the 2014 Virtual Trek.

Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes. Her impressive career has spanned more than 50 years. At 13, Judy Collins made her public debut performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos but it was the music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk revival, that sparked Judy’s love of lyrics. She soon moved away from the classical piano and began her lifelong love with the guitar. In 1961, Judy Collins released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, at the age of 22 and began a thirty-five year association with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. She interpreted the songs of fellow artists - particularly the social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. Judy was instrumental in bringing other singer-songwriters to a wider audience including poet/musician Leonard Cohen – and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.

FORSTER NURSERIES LTD. Parliamentary Report


Enerplus supports Camrose DARE

Enerplus’ Joarcam foreman Jim Geddes presented a $4,000 donation to Camrose Police Service Inspector Lee Foreman to ensure that DARE programs grow and succeed in communities such as Camrose. This is the third of a three-year sponsorship commitment. By Murray Green

Enerplus is teaming up with the Camrose Police Service to ensure the DARE program continues in the local area. “Enerplus is proud to sponsor the Camrose Police Service DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program," said Enerplus foreman Jim Geddes. The program was established to protect and educate the youth of Camrose regarding issues such as bullying, drugs,


and making positive life choices. DARE began in 1996 with the assignment of a school resource officer (SRO), allowing a fulltime employee to be focused on the schools and students of Camrose. For over 14 years the DARE curriculum has reached all nine schools in Camrose area and covers a number of core health issues that fall within Alberta Learning’s curriculum. DARE’s "no use" message is based on

improving life skills and focusing on drug awareness. Peer pressure resistance training, self-improvement concepts, personal safety, and decision-making skills are taught to all Grade 3, 6, and 8 students in the City of Camrose. For more information visit divisions/school_resource_officer/ and the Camrose Police Service’s current DARE officer is Mr. John Fernhout.

Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot Standing Up to Terrorism

Our prayers continue for the Boston Marathon victims, survivors, their families and loved ones. On the heels of this tragic event, we learn of an alleged terrorist plot supported by al-Qaeda in Iran to attack Via Rail passenger trains here in Canada. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews maintains these incidents demonstrate the need for stronger anti-terrorism laws in Canada. On Monday, following the attack in Boston, our Conservative government proceeded with Bill S-7, the Combatting Terrorism Act as the Order of the Day in the House of Commons. This is one of the same legislative Acts that I worked on early in my tenure as your Member of Parliament when I served as Official Opposition Senior Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Critic. Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, I helped write and supported the passage of the same provisions in Bill S-7. These special measures expired in 2007. Our government prepared Bill S-7 with these same measures and we have kept it on the Order Paper in Parliament ready to re-instate. Bill S-7 provides for investigative hearings and preventive arrest when terrorist activity in Canada is suspected or occurs. It prohibits persons from leaving or attempting to leave Canada to commit terrorist acts. As well, it can require someone to testify before a judge at an investigative hearing or be imprisoned for refusing. Whenever a terrorist act occurs, we need to take immediate action to protect Canadians by, for example, identifying and pursuing the perpetrators and learning if there are more assaults planned or underway. Such questions need to be answered as soon as possible.

Bill S-7 provides the authority to deal with an act of terrorism in Canada in a timely manner and provides Canada’s law enforcement agencies the tools they need. Our House of Commons Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security, conducted the review and clauseby-clause study of Bill S-7 late last fall. As Chair, I reported S-7 back to the House in December 2012 – without amendments – after weeks of public hearings and expert witness testimony. The Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of Justice told our committee, “It is important to note that individuals have the right to counsel throughout the process outlined in S-7. Statements made by an individual won’t be used against him or her in subsequent criminal proceedings. The two exceptions are, of course, if there was perjury or if the individual was contradicting the facts they’d already given.” This allows persons who may have crucial knowledge concerning an act of terrorism to come forward and either prevent a terrorist act, or provide timely information to apprehend the perpetrators, or prevent further terrorist acts. Our committee heard that the provisions in Bill S-7 have never been used by Canada. Good government requires the right decisions to be made at the right time. It would be unfortunate to pass Bill S-7 into law after a terrorist attack in Canada. I support Bill S-7 being part of the law in Canada, and I pray that we never need to use it. 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 780-6084600, toll-free 1-800-665-4358, fax 780-608-4603 or e-mail

The advantages of buying from a franchised dealership

Pat Quinlan, Lamb Ford Sales By Dan Jensen

With money being tight, it is always a good idea to shop around for the best deal. Telling the difference, however, between a deal that is a good one and a deal that is not can sometimes be a little bit tricky and require some thorough investigation. You need to take into consideration the quality of product, the warranty for that product and the people with whom you are dealing. After all, cheapest does not always translate into less expensive. As Leon M. Cautillo put it, "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after low pricing is forgotten!" In the case of buying a new vehicle, you want to be sure that the vehicle is reliable and that the person with whom you are speaking is knowledgeable. You also want the assurance that if something goes wrong with it sometime down the road, you can get it back to prime condition in as little time as possible. The following local franchise dealerships are examples of some, among others, who have good reputations for providing competitive or better pricing, quality and after-sales service. Lamb Ford Sales Ltd. in Camrose takes pride in the fact that all staff are highly trained in their respective fields and are able to promptly answer the questions of all their customers. "They know what they are talking about and that means a lot," said Lamb Ford Sales general manager Pat Quinlan. "If they aren't able to thoroughly answer a question to your satisfaction there is someone who can." Lamb Ford also offers customers factory incentives and cash discounts on all the newest models, and low interest rates on those that are used. "With the market the way it is we understand the need to be competitive," said Quinlan. "If we weren't competitive we wouldn't exist." Quinlan said no one knows a Ford vehicle better than Ford itself. "The computer systems in vehicles today are very complex. We have the equipment here that lets us get to the root of the problems in the shortest time possible

Will McClellan, McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC

and do the updates that are needed. In some cases we can have an engineer from Ford come out to help with a diagnosis." Quinlan said it is a myth that buying a vehicle or parts from a non-franchised dealership is less expensive. "If you buy a Ford vehicle and buy Ford parts from us when it comes time to service or repair that vehicle, the vehicle will run better and last longer than if you purchased after-market products." Lamb Ford Sales is a multiple-time winner of the President's Diamond Club Award, presented annually to those dealerships that demonstrate outstanding achievement in sales and customer service. McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC has always been committed to putting the customer first. "We are here to earn the business of customers and provide them with exceptional service," said dealer principal Will McClellan. "We know we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them." McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC works hard at being competitive with all its prices. "We realize that people have a choice to go where they want but also realize that they want quality. There aren't any savings to be had if you purchase something that has to be replaced sooner than something you would buy straight from the manufacturer." McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC believes the quality of new and used products it has to offer is second to none. "The products we offer are always improving," said McClellan. "We have more new models this year than we have ever had in the past." McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC is committed to maintaining a highly skilled and trained staff to ensure that service work meets the highest possible standards. "We have staff who have been here for many years who are familiar with every part of the business and product line," said McClellan. "One of the things we are very happy about is the fact that our shop foreman has been acknowledged as one of the best GM technicians in the country." McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC received the Busi-

ness Excellence Award at the Camrose Chamber of Commerce Small Business Week banquet last fall in recognition of the important role it has played in the community. "We are always striving to be a responsible member of the community and pay it forward," said McClellan. Camrose Chrysler is committed to ensuring that all customers have a good vehicle ownership experience. "If they buy a vehicle from us we believe it is our responsibility to stand behind them for as long as they own that vehicle by providing them with the best possible products and service," explained Camrose Chrysler owner Mike Rodin. "The experience they have with us does not stop after they purchase their new set of wheels." Camrose Chrysler has invested thousands of dollars in high tech diagnostic equipment, and is continually sending technicians to training programs so they can upgrade their skills. "Our technicians have hundreds of hours of training and, in most cases, know exactly what to look for when problems start to arise," said Rodin. Camrose Chrysler recommends the use of Chrysler parts whenever possible. "Chrysler parts are built specifically for Chrysler vehicles and carry a full one-year warranty," said Rodin. Chrysler vehicles are covered by a full three-year, 60,000 km comprehensive warranty and a five-year, 100,000 powertrain warranty. "The factory warranty gives you a fixed cost of ownership," said Rodin. "You know what the monthly operating costs are and if something goes wrong there isn't any more money that will be coming out of your pocket." Chrysler also offers five years of roadside assistance on all vehicles that covers everything from tows to getting inside the vehicle when you have locked yourself out. Camrose Chrysler provides free shuttle service for those who bring their vehicles in for repairs. "We take customers to their homes and businesses and pick them up again when the vehicle is ready," said Rodin. "We know how inconvenient it is for them to bring a vehicle in for repairs so we do our best to work around their schedules."

Turcotte joins Vikings The University of Alberta, Augustana Campus and Vikings men’s basketball program announced the commitment of Sebastien Turcotte to the Vikings beginning in the 2013-14 season. Sebastien is a diverse multisport standout and high-honours student from Bishop J. Mahoney High School in Saskatoon who caught the eye of Vikings head coach Dave Drabiuk when the Saints played in the Jasper Place Reb Invitational in December. “Sebastien’s coach at BJM, Brett Hoffman, is an excellent coach that really cares about developing player talent and molding people of great character. I know we are getting an excellent basketball player, student and new member of the Augustana community,” said coach Dave Drabiuk. As a member of the BJM Saints football team Sebastien won both city and provincial championships in 2011 and 2012 playing wide receiver and was named the recipient of his team’s hustle and desire award in both seasons. Coach Dave Drabiuk noted that “Sebastien was quietly making his presence felt at ID camp this year and our players immediately pointed to him as ‘our kind of guy’ in terms of his demeanor, competitiveness and his commitment to success."

Camrose Association For Community Living (CAFCL) offers two scholarships each year. The Norris Bowen scholarship was established by Muriel Rieger and is administered by CAFCL. The $300 scholarship will be awarded to an individual with a developmental disability participating in further education of any type. The second scholarship is The Camrose Association For Community Living Disabilities Studies scholarship. This is a $1,000 scholarship that is awarded to a student in the disabilities field or a field of related study. Michelle Gainsforth was the recipient of the Disabilities Studies scholarship for the 20122013 academic year. Michelle is a TIPS/PCAP mentor and has been an employee at CAFCL for two and one half years. Michelle is enrolled in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Education through distance learning at Lethbridge College. Michelle will use this course to help with her current position at CAFCL as the primary goal of the Parent Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is to prevent future births of alcohol and drug exposed children. We do this by addressing the needs of their mothers helping to stabilize using a number of methods such as setting goals and identifying steps to achieve them, obtaining alcohol/drug treatment, choosing a family planning method, and resolving system service barriers. FASD is the most common disability in the world, and 100 per cent preventable. “I believed taking the FASD Education course through Lethbridge College would better enable me to serve the families I work with. The course has helped me better understand what FASD is, a prevention strategy, and the variety of ways alcohol impacts a developing fetus’ brain.  My goal after completing the course is to help remove the stigma attached to FASD by finding the necessary supports for the mothers that will help remove the shame and blame associated with FASD.  When a mother feels empowered and is supported by people that understand that women drink alcohol during pregnancy for the same reason they drink alcohol when they are not pregnant, she will be more likely to ask for the needed supports for her child with an FASD," says Gainsforth CAFCL is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 scholarships. If you or someone you know would benefit from either of these scholarships, please contact Cherilyn Sharkey at (780) 672-0257 or by email at Deadline for submitting scholarship applications is Friday, May 10th, 2013. Camrose Association for Community Living, founded fifty years ago, is a community focused organization providing services to people to develop skills and build quality of life. The association assists people with disabilities, people with acquired brain injury, and families at risk to live and participate in the community. With a staff of over 110, CAFCL serves people across East Central Alberta.

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.

Michael Davidse By Murray Green

Football Alberta selected the top 40 players to form the North Bowl Team at the bantam level on April 21. Almost 200 players were put through the paces during a camp at Foote Field in Edmonton to determine an all-star squad to face a similar southern team. Former Camrose Buffaloes players Michael Davidse and Nick Johnson had a great camp and both linemen made the team. "I was surprised to make the team because there were 30 players trying out for the same defensive end position that I was," said Michael. "I was also excited to be able to play in the bowl game because it is an honour. To play with such good players will be both fun and a learning experience." The Bantam Bowl is the Alberta Minor Football All-star Game. This program is only for graduating Grade 9 players. Two camps in April were used to select 40 players each who will represent the north and the south in the fifth Bantam Bowl scheduled for Monday, May 20, at Foote Field in Edmonton. The South Selection Camp was held the previous weekend. "I went into the camp thinking that I'm trying my best and we'll see what happens. To play at this level, with this many of the top players will be a great experience," added Michael. "I've been playing with the midget Shock team to prepare for the Bantam Bowl. Now I'll be hitting the gym a little more and practising with the northern team and the midget team." The two bantam squads have almost a month to prepare for the biggest game of their careers. "It's great to have a familiar face on the team with Nick Johnson. I'm not sure if we will play side by side, but it is good to have a teammate of mine playing with me on the same line," said Michael. "It will be good experience that I can bring back with me to the high school level." Michael will be playing for the Camrose Composite High School Trojans in the fall. Nick, from Wetaskiwin, may be on opposing squads in September.

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 trees 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.

The City of Camrose, in partnership with the Camrose Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, are hosting a ceremony to honor the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic. The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continuous battle of the Second World War and one in which Canada played a central role. The battle began on the opening day of the War in September 1939 and ended almost six years later with Germany’s surrender in May 1945. The Canadian ship named in honour of Camrose, the HMCS CAMROSE, was in service during the same time period. The men and women who served on HMCS Camrose served to protect the freedom that we all have as Canadians. On May 5, 2013, there will be a wreath-laying ceremony at 11:30 a.m. at the Legion cenotaph located at 5703-48 Avenue, followed by a short program, refreshments and viewing of memorabilia from the HMCS Camrose. The public is invited to attend. For further information contact City Hall at 780-672-4426.

We advise turning your once-loved pieces into something new and exciting. Gold is an easy metal to re-work, fix or modify. Stones can be easily remounted into new rings, pendants or earrings. We are expert at turning jewellery hidden away in dresser drawers into current, stylish pieces that will be worn with pleasure and pride.  If you find a photo of a jewellery item on the internet, a magazine or a flyer we can have our goldsmiths duplicate such an item. We have the talent to personalize to your taste and style. Your new piece of jewellery might start with a simple sketch. It might arise from your verbal comments.  Regardless, our skilled craftsmen guarantee a look you will love.  We have a design team ready to transform your old jewellery into fabulous new, eye-catching pieces. Jewellery not worn for six years or six decades will be recreated in as little as six weeks.  Old jewellery – new again! It’s cost-effective. It’s for you. Drop by our store with your old rings and other jewellery. We can give you great ideas pertaining to how to get new enjoyment out of these out-of-sight, out-of mind pieces.


What’s a great drink to have outside in the sunshine?


Spring is a time of celebration, a renewal, an awakening of the senses, the perfect occasion to imbibe in a beverage of extraordinary complexity and refreshment. The venerable Singapore Sling, a South-East Asian cocktail created more than a century ago, still is revered for its divine ability to thrill your smell, taste and sight. Although there are hundreds of recipes for a Singapore Sling, this is our favourite: - 2 oz. Pineapple Juice - 1 oz. Tanqueray No. 10 Gin - 1/2 oz. Cherry Brandy - 1 tsp. Chartreuse or Dom Benedictine - 1 tsp Cointreau - 2 tsp. Grenadine - 2 tsp. Lemon Juice - 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters Shake with crushed ice. Pour into tall glass. Garnish at will.

Q. A:

How do I choose the right window coverings for my home?

Whether the sun is damaging your new floors, the neighbors can see everything you do, or the glare on your T.V. is interfering with your favorite program, window coverings can serve many different functions while greatly enhancing the appeal of your home’s decor. Window coverings come in all types of colors, textures and materials to fit many sizes and shapes of windows. Odd shaped windows such as circles, arches, and angles can also be fitted appropriately. When there is such an extensive variety of window coverings, how does one know which style is going to be best suited for them? There are many things to consider, such as: privacy, light control, energy efficiency, maintenance and achieving a desired look. In a bedroom you may want the room to be very dark and private while in the family room you may want sufficient sunshine while still protecting your furniture. Some rooms’ views are too fantastic to block out and yet too hot or drafty to enjoy. These are just a few of the problems you may run into, and custom blinds can solve virtually any type of window dilemma. Working with a professional window-covering expert can certainly make the process easier. A professional has the experience required to choose a covering that is both functional and attractive. See your local expert, Dion Currie at Wideman Paint and Décor about selecting and installing the window coverings that are right for you.

Why is D & D Vehicle Sales and Service setting vehicle sales records?


We approach the business far differently than your average dealership. We are not restricted to selling one manufacturer’s line of cars and trucks.  Through our wellestablished connections across Canada and the United States we are able to source any make and model of vehicle.  As a customer who, for example, aspires to own a Dodge 1500 half-ton loaded and white in color, with less than 10,000 kilometres, we will set our sights on finding that vehicle.  Want an Acura? – no problem.  If you want a Ford or GM product for your business and need full warranty – that isn’t a problem for us either.  In fact, if you want a Mercedes or other European –made vehicle we will bring that car into our dealership for you, too. One of our other advantages is having the ability to work on any car or truck (or for that matter heavy duty truck, agricultural equipment or oilfield machinery).  We have licensed journeymen mechanics and heavy duty mechanics working in our modern, well-equipped shop! With our ability to locate any vehicle you desire, our service ability and on-site financing plan, we have become one of the most unique and leading dealerships in Western Canada.  We welcome the opportunity of pleasing you!

Why do I still need to use a travel agent for travel bookings?


It boils down to what’s your time worth to you? Travel agents not only efficiently book airline tickets, hotel reservations and vacation packages,  they are also expert at solving problems, dealing with the unexpected and pros at addressing concerns with airlines, hotels and other travel partners once business travel or family trips are over.  Many travellers, young or old, seasoned or first timers, attempt to look after all of their bookings on their own.   After all, it’s as easy as logging onto the trusted internet…. right?  Wrong.  Anyone in the industry and indeed at our own Marlin Travel office in Camrose has heard an untold number of stories of unsatisfactory hotels, lost baggage, flight cancellations or ridiculous airline connections, as conveyed by travellers who chose to bypass the services of a travel professional.   Your travel agent is a trained professional, well connected to travel partners at tour companies and leading airlines and hotels world-wide.  We can recommend holidays and hotels based on personal experience.  We have the ability to talk “the travel business language” with industry contacts when the need or a problem arises.  As an individual you won’t have equal, even similar, access.  With all of the advantages a travel agent brings to your travel memories, it pays to count on us!  Answer provided by:

We’re getting Married! What should we think about for the food at the reception?


Weddings are a celebration wherein the guests look forward to the reception as much as the actual ceremony, and the food served at the wedding is a vital part of the festivities. Choosing foods for a reception can take some forethought, especially when the wedding party is large. That’s when you can rely on the experience and knowledge provided by Chris Cameron and Geri Ferner, catering managers at the Norsemen Inn. Together, they have 30 years of experience working with wedding parties. The first rule of thumb is variety. As much as your budget allows, give your guests the choice over what they dine on. Exotic flavors can be served alongside more traditional offerings. During the main course of the meal, give your guests a few options. Offer a meat dish, a poultry and a seafood; this caters to a wide variety of diners. It’s also important for you to recognize that many of your guests have food allergies or are on restricted diets. Geri and Chris can provide suggestions for guests who are celiac, vegetarians or vegans. Diabetics will also appreciate a selection of sugar-free desserts or lower carbohydrate foods. You also could be more environmentally conscious and offer organic foods, especially those that are available from local producers. “Food is an essential part of a wedding reception and we can ensure the food is tasty, full of variety and acceptable to the majority of our guests,” said Chris.
