When you buy a Big Mac, Happy Meal or Hot McCafe beverage, $1.00 from each of these items will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses or local charities. Proceeds from McHappy Day purchases made at the two Camrose locations will be making a sizeable difference to Camrose and area Special Olympics athletes.

Carol Wideman is one of the countless individuals who dedicate their time to making Special Olympics a rewarding and memorable experience for athletes and their families. She hopes you will dine at McDonalds tomorrow.

EVEREST® GBX NOW CONTAINS EVEREST® 2.0. SAFE, RELENTLESS CONTROL THAT BEST FITS YOUR FIELDS. EVEREST® GBX now contains EVEREST® 2.0 in addition to fluroxypyr, the same ingredient in Attain™, providing exceptional control and economic value for managing troublesome grass and broadleaf weeds. RELENTLESS CONTROL & CROP SAFETY: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS In University of Saskatchewan field trials over the past two years, researchers found that regardless of conditions, EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush™ control of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow without adverse effects, thanks to the super selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of spring and durum wheat. “We like that EVEREST 2.0 and EVEREST GBX give customers a wide application window that lets you spray at your earliest convenience, regardless of weather conditions,” says Brent McIndoe of Andrukow Group Solutions Inc. “Spraying early provides the best weed control, and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has the best chance to become established and reach its top potential yield. And, at the same time, if the rains come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 and EVEREST GBX are still safe to apply.”

SUPERIOR FORMULATION AND CONVENIENCE “EVEREST 2.0 is an advanced, highly concentrated liquid formulation,” says Craig Brekkas, Herbicide Marketing Manager Western Canada for Arysta LifeScience. “It’s a user-friendly, no-hassle product that wheat growers can rely on, with exceptional convenience and flexibility.” EVEREST GBX contains one 2-litre bottle of EVEREST 2.0 along with two bottles of GBX, and will treat 80 -100 acres.

EVEREST GBX. A herbicide you can count on. For more information on EVEREST GBX visit Andrukow Group Solutions Inc., or call 1-866-761-9397

CHOOSE THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUR WEED SPECTRUM AND PRESSURE When you add the recent discovery of glyphosateresistant kochia in Southern Alberta to the existing challenges of Group 1 wild oat resistance and Group 2 cleaver, kochia and chickweed resistance, it’s even more important to have choices that can best fit your weed spectrum and don’t break the bank. “EVEREST GBX can be customized in terms of rate and tank-mix partners, based on individual weed spectrum and pressure,” says Brekkas. “EVEREST GBX tank-mixed with MCPA, 2,4-D or DEPLOY® gets more than 50 broadleaf weeds, including the most critical resistant weeds in Western Canada. And all at a better price than tank-mixing EVEREST 2.0 with a comparable broadleaf option.”

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

Objective: equal opportunity to help themselves Last week we were shocked by the Bangladesh tragedy in which over 600 garment factory workers were killed and many more injured when the building in which they worked collapsed. It was appalling to learn that the factory owner knew the building had been condemned because it was structurally unsafe and yet he ordered his employees to continue to work in it. People around the world, including we in Canada, were quick to judge the factory owner guilty of the most heinous crime and punish him with maximum penalty. We also know that Bangladeshi employees work for wages that are only a small fraction of what is paid in Canada or other developed nations. We know, too, that the products they manufacture are made for and sold by retail outlets in Canada and other wealthy nations. One might wonder why men and women will work for such low wages but, if the choice is a little income versus no income, they do in a country that provides no social assistance. While the factory owner is surely guilty of inhumane disregard for the welfare of his fellow human beings, it becomes more and more evident that many others have actually been partners in the crime – some knowingly, others totally unaware of the fact. The retail industry, whether it is services or product being provided, is extremely competitive. Entrepreneurs go where production costs are least, whether at home or abroad, so they can sell for less than competitors. Consumers buy where the price of goods or service is lowest. It is likely that few buyers are aware of the poor working conditions in hundreds of factories in Third World countries; even if they did, they wouldn’t know what they could do to change the situation. To varying degrees, we all share in the guilt for the appalling treatment of factory workers in Third World countries. How can the situation be changed? Not easily because the problem is so complex. Boycotting our Canadian retailers who sell sweatshop goods won’t help the Bangladeshi workers; it would simply leave them unemployed and with no income instead of some. If Canadians have to pay more for foreignmade goods, they will have less to spend on other goods and services which may increase unemployment both at home and abroad. Alleviating the problem of maltreatment of Third World workers is a huge assignment because it will require the collaborative involvement of many nations to set international standards of remuneration and safety. It will also require international trade negotiations regarding agreement on such matters as tariffs and other barriers. Posing a huge hurdle is the fact that so many foreign governments with disparate values and resources must reach some common objective. Public opinion does have the power to change minds and there are signs that the tragedy in Bangladesh is having a positive effect. Let’s not let it die. Let's continue to pressure our international negotiators to strive diligently for fair labour practices that give Third World workers equal opportunity to help themselves.

I am writing in response to the letter of superintendent Larry Payne in your April 23rd edition. Firstly, I must say to the parents and students…hooray for you, and don’t worry about what appears to be non-interest by your excellent and caring teachers. You see I am a former teacher and your teachers do support you and your right to speak out but they have been effectively silenced by this administration due to a real fear of retaliation in the current atmosphere of intimidation that exists in this school division. I think it is called bullying! Don’t be disheartened…keep up the good fight until you win. Secondly: to Mr. Payne I say: I have read the 2010 report entitled “Inspiring Education”, all 56 pages, and listened to the speeches on line… and no where does it mandate the assessment methods you are forcing upon this division. And quit blaming the minister of education. Minister Jeff Johnson said in the legislature this week that he did not direct any particular assessment method for Battle River. So why do you say: “We” (like you are royalty) are following the ...direction of Inspiring Education”? No, you are following your own direction and it is being criticized. I would give you a zero for truthfulness! This assessment method, flawed as it is, is being criticized by students and parents (and silently by many teachers). Why are you not listening to them? You can’t be “committed to working with parents and community members” (your words) if you don’t even listen and make some meaningful changes. Your letter of response is so full of platitudes and meaningless educational rhetoric, that it is an insult to the parents and students. How shameful of you. Thirdly: I call on the duly elected representatives of the parents of this division, the school board trustees, to do their job. Either correct him or terminate him...and stop the systemic bullying too. Your constituency is making a very real and loud statement to you too. It is time to find a real educator to do the jobs out-

lined in the Inspiring Education report for our students of today and tomorrow! Yours respectfully, Patricia E. Spencer, B. Ed, LL B, Daysland Transportation troubles

I am an out-of-province visitor, home for 11 days for a 50th nursing reunion and a sister's reunion. Monday morning I experienced several surprises and much frustration in trying to arrange transportation from Camrose to Red Deer for that day. First I heard from the one car rental agency in Camrose that a rental car wasn't available until late Tuesday afternoon. I knew there were no Greyhound buses out of Camrose so a friend of my aunt offered to drive me to Wetaskiwin. In phoning Greyhound Bus Lines in Wetaskiwin I learned that the only bus from there to Red Deer left at 2 a.m.. And the Red Arrow Bus does not stop in Wetaskiwin at all. The only solution was to have my nephew in Red Deer drive up to get me later in the afternoon when their family car was available. My learning/information. 1. In a similar situation I will remember to reserve a rental car a number of days in advance. 2. The only hopeful information about bus service out of Camrose was given to me by an employee at Greyhound Bus Lines, Wetaskiwin. She said Greyhound is planning a shuttle service between Wetaskiwin, Camrose and Edmonton. Lynne Alton, Nanaimo, B.C. Election promises

Well, one year after the provincial Conservative Party was elected again in Alberta (with only 43 per cent of the popular vote of 56 per cent of the eligible voters) we can have a quick look at the election promise made…and not kept. Premier Redford, who spends more time lobbying Washington for oil companies than she does helping Albertans made 10 election promises. She has kept none! She would twin highway 881 and 63 – 881 is not twinned, nor is 63. Highway 63 twinning has slowed down. Prediction: safety is an issue on 63 but received attention only to allow oil companies free transportation to and from Fort McMurray – this policy will continue while other Alberta roads will deteriorate. Funding to Municipalities was to increase $1.05 billion but is now frozen – no increase. Prediction: municipal taxes will have to increase (and significantly – look out Wetaskiwin!).

The Grant Program for Aboriginal and Rural Students did not receive the promised $1.8 million. Prediction: post-secondary programs will be cut and services reduced. Redford reneged on “fast track” emergency rooms. Prediction: more rural hospitals will face closure of emergency wings or hours of operation will be reduced. The promise to increase post-secondary institutional funding 2% was cancelled in the 2013 budget. Prediction: cuts to university staffs, more user fees, and programs amalgamated. The 2% funding increase for schools has been chopped. Teachers offered 0% (not even able to keep up to inflation). Prediction: municipal education taxes will go up. The 2013 budget did not meet the 4.5% funding promised to Alberta Health Services. Prediction: continued contractual problems with doctors, hospital service slow downs, long term beds for senior care unresolved (your parents may get a placement in another town with strangers). No efforts are being made to eliminate Alberta child poverty or poverty in general. Prediction: more crimes of necessity, police overload and burnout, vandalism and property damage. Promised full-day kindergarten – scrapped! And the 10th broken promise from the 2012 Conservative campaign platform “A new PC government will deliver a balanced budget by 2013…” Ha! To think some Albertans voted for this! Some obvious solutions are readily available. To name a few: replace the present government, fix the P.C. broken business plan by diversifying the Alberta economy, pay attention to rural Alberta economic development and supporting small business growth, collect a fair share of oil royalties (and end all forms of corporate subsidies, tax breaks, and holidays), create jobs in Alberta by refining “our” bitumen in Alberta. The shameful performance of this government is a disgrace for all Albertans. The Redford lies while in Washington recently further diminish the credibility of the Alberta advantage. Conservative and Wildrose misguided beliefs that Alberta has a spending problem are ignoring any efforts at increasing budget income through sustainable and responsible economic development. The broken election promises are a travesty. They are proof enough and evidence of incompetent government and financial mismanagement. Welcome to Alberta one year after the provincial election.

Give the gift of green this Mother's Day Mom may appreciate chocolate or flowers. But for children who want to offer her something a little more special – especially for their eco-conscious moms – there are a number of different gift options to make Mom's big day as eco-friendly as it is enjoyable. An eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift idea list, think about adding these "green" gifts. * Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother's tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. Finish the gift with the inclusion of a book that describes different garden designs and gives tips for beginners. * Dine at a local restaurant. Many families take Mom out for a meal on her special day. To make the experience ecofriendly, select among restaurants that are close to home in the area. Explore the possibilities of restaurants that may serve foods made with local, organic ingredients. If you cannot find such a restaurant, do not worry, just choose a local establishment to conserve fuel. * Pay for a car tune-up. Improving the gas mileage on Mom's car is one gift that can be environmentally friendly. According to the United States Department of Energy, keeping a car in shape can help save money and improve fuel economy. Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor,

can improve Mom's gas mileage by as much as 40 percent. Also, be sure to have her car tires properly inflated. She can be losing gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in all four tires. Getting an oil change with the recommended grade of motor oil is another gas mileage improvement measure. * Purchase eco-friendly kitchen items. It may be a major faux pas to give Mom an appliance or a new vacuum for Mother's Day. However, if your mother is an avid cook or baker, she may appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails and outdoor entertaining. * Pamper mom with organic products. What mom doesn't enjoy a little pampering from time to time? You can treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find. * Select organic fruits and flowers. Companies like www. can assemble a bouquet made from responsibly grown flowers or even a wreath for a wall or door. They also have food gifts, from organic fruits to nuts. * Spend the day outdoors. Most moms cherish any gift from their children, whether lavish or simple. A nice, eco-friendly gift is to spend time together. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the lake for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure. Plan to finish the day with a homemade, picnic lunch.

No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star. ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Spring cleaning help Grateful Grannies by Barb Stroh

The Grateful Grannies will help you with your spring cleaning. Well, not the actual cleaning, but they will help you recycle any unused fabric, yarn, notions, patterns, trim and any other embellishments! The donated items will be sold at the Fall Fabric Frenzy which is planned, in Camrose, for mid-October. Fran Reed, with the Grateful Grannies, said, “We want to help you reduce unwanted things. Many of us have drawers full of fabric which we will probably never use. By donating to this cause you can free up space, keep things out of the landfills and put items into hands of people who will use them.” All the proceeds from the fabric sale will go to the Grandmother to Grandmother campaign which assists African grandmothers who care for orphaned grandchildren. Africa has become a continent of orphans – as many as 11.6 million children have been orphaned by AIDS.

The fabric sale is just one of several new initiatives the Camrose Grateful Grannies have planned for 2013. Since this group was formed in 2008 over $50,000 has been sent through the Stephen Lewis Foundation to Africa. Chair Agnes Hoveland commented, “We have been assured that 90 per cent of the money raised for the Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign goes directly to grass roots projects in Africa. Only 10 per cent is directed to administration. This gives us continued hope to carry on.” To arrange for dropping off your fabric donations, please call Audrey Lett at 780-672-5806. To arrange for having your donations picked up, contact one of the following committee members: Lisa Alain 780-679-0682, Leslie Koehli 780-672-9304, Fran Reed 780-672-9123 or Carol Roy 780672-8962. Watch the papers for more details about the Fall Fabric Frenzy and other events being organized by the Grateful Grannies.

Master gardener program comes to end By Dan Jensen

Ed Delong provides instruction on how to trim a tree.

The Camrose Heritage Railway Station and Park and Gaia College (Victoria, B.C.) wrapped up their first Organic Master Program April 24 with a practicum on tree pruning. The program started in January with 14 students from Camrose and Camrose County attending classes once a week in the station's tea room. "Our instructors were people who had expertise in certain areas," explained Railway Station chair and operations manager Glenys Smith. As part of their homework, students were required to submit a written plan for a future project involving some of the principles they learned during

the course. Camrose resident Michelle Danderfer, who has been gardening for more than 25 years, described what she would be doing this summer to improve her front yard without using herbicides or pesticides, while others focused on topics like landscape design, or organic mulching and composting. Students will receive their certificates in the fall after completing ten hours of volunteer time in the Railway Station gardens and ten hours of time at another location. "It's a positive situation for the students but also for the Railway Station," said Smith. "We get help with maintaining our grounds and they are able to learn from their experiences."

The Organic Master Gardener Certificate they receive from Gaia College is recognized by everyone in the organic community. "Having this certificate will help those who are interested in finding work in the areas of organic gardening," said Smith." Danderfer, who has been gardening for 25 years, said she is looking forward to implementing some of the concepts that she has learned. "It has given me a better understanding of soil as an organism," she said. "Soil is the foundation of all plant life and if you have healthy soils you have healthy plants." The Camrose Heritage Railway Station and Park plans to

start work on a Victory Garden this summer that it hopes will serve as an example to people of what can be done with organic growing methods. "We're going to be building a fence and preparing the soil and hope to do the first planting in the spring of 2014," explained Smith. "We believe it is important for everyone to know they can grow good vegetable crops without resorting to herbicides and pesticides." Anyone who is interested in signing up for the next Organic Master Gardener Program is encouraged to contact the Camrose Heritage Railway Station and Park at 780-672-3099, or email Eleanor White at White.

Unique gifts Whether she's still hard at work raising children or her kids have grown up and now have children of their own, Mom deserves our best efforts come Mother's Day. And while traditional gifts like flowers and chocolate might make for thoughtful Mother's Day gifts, those who want to go the extra mile for Mom this year can consider the following unique gift ideas. * Concert tickets: Many adults recall the days of their youth when Mom would relax while listening to some of her favorite music on a lazy summer afternoon. Why not take a stroll down Memory Lane and take Mom to see one of her favorite acts in concert? Even if you have outgrown Mom's musical tastes, she will still appreciate the chance to spend an evening out on the town with her kids and some good music. * Theatre tickets: If Mom is a fan of live theatre then nothing will elicit a bigger smile than tickets to a Broadway show she has had her eyes on. If Broadway is a bit too far for you to travel, do your homework and find a traveling production of a former Broadway show. Such productions often feature many of the same actors who made the play famous on Broadway so you're still bound to see an unforgettable show Mom will love.

A mother is the truest friend we have when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

RELENTLESS ON WEEDS. SAFE ON WHEAT. A RARE COMBINATION IN A HERBICIDE. With EVEREST® 2.0, no grower has to sacrifice yield or crop safety in order to control weeds in wheat. EVEREST 2.0 Herbicide, the next generation in weed control, has advanced safener technology built in to provide peace of mind while delivering long-lasting control of green foxtail, wild oats and key broadleaf weeds. FLUSH AFTER FLUSH™ CONTROL LEADS TO BETTER YIELDS In University of Saskatchewan field trials over the past two years, researchers found that regardless of conditions, EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush™ control of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow without adverse effects, thanks to the super selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of spring and durum wheat. “We like that EVEREST 2.0 gives customers a wide application window that lets you spray at your earliest convenience, regardless of weather conditions,” says Brent McIndoe of Andrukow Group Solutions Inc. “Spraying early provides the best weed control, and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has the best chance to become

established and reach its top potential yield. And at the same time, if the rains come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 is still safe to apply.”

EVEREST 2.0. A herbicide you can count on. For more information on EVEREST 2.0 visit Andrukow Group Solutions Inc., or call 1-866-761-9397

BEST-IN-CLASS CONTROL OF GROUP 1 RESISTANT GRASSY WEEDS More and more, spring wheat growers in Western Canada are plagued with Group 1 resistant grassy weeds. As a Group 2 herbicide, EVEREST 2.0 is the best option for growers struggling with Group 1 resistance. It is the only group 2 herbicide that provides Flush after flush control with unsurpassed crop safety.

Camrose, Alberta 780-608-2351

SUPERIOR FORMULATION AND CONVENIENCE “EVEREST 2.0 is an advanced, highly concentrated liquid formulation,” says Craig Brekkas, Herbicide Marketing Manager, Western Canada for Arysta LifeScience. “It’s a user-friendly, no-hassle product that wheat growers can rely on, with exceptional convenience and flexibility.” One 2-litre bottle will treat 80 - 100 acres for wild oats and green foxtail. In addition, the high-quality liquid formula with safener technology makes it compatible with multiple tank-mix partners.

Camrose police targeting theft from vehicles By Murray Green

The Camrose Police Service is devoting more man power to solving theft from motor vehicle cases and to educate people on how to avoid becoming victims. After being identified as a priority, the police service has stepped up its patrol in problem areas of the city. "We have made it one of two initiatives that we are dedicating increased resources and problem solving solutions to for 2013," said crime prevention Const. Matthew Wilton. "What is in visible sight is what the thieves are targeting." The theft of motor vehicles usually occurs when the keys are left inside the vehicles. "We don't have too many cases where someone is hot wiring a vehicle to steal it. Usually, if the car itself is stolen, it is because keys are left in it or the vehicle is left running." The police service has seen an increase of theft of items that are left in vehicles. "There is a perception that if you don't lock your doors, thieves won't smash your windows," stated Det. Craig Ferguson. "But it is a crime of opportunity. People walk down the street trying door handles until they find one that is unlocked. If it is open is gives the thief an easy access. No one thinks twice about criminals entering a vehicle, even if people are around. Rarely do we find a broken window. They won't smash a window with witnesses in view. It is loud and draws attention." Vehicle owners often think they have nothing valuable to steal. "Thieves are sophisticated enough to find something. Even if you don't have valuables, they can grab vehicle registrations, insurance cards and garage door openers to lead to something else at a later date," warned Const. Wilton. "If you have to leave your window open just leave a crack, so it is not easily seen or allow access through." Det. Ferguson said theft from motor vehicles quite often occurs in the same neighbourhood. "Usually, they work a neighbourhood. Most of the time they are on foot or have bikes. As the weather warms up, we are expecting a dramatic increase in the number of occurrences of theft from motor vehicles. More people are

out late at night and that is when the majority of the crimes are committed," said Det. Ferguson. "People feel violated when someone else has gone through their things. For us, these crimes tend to tie up a lot of resources and staff. The important message here is that these crimes could have been prevented." Locking doors can prevent 90 per cent of the cases the police members are faced with each year. This has led to the tougher action from the local station called POGs (problems, objectives and goals). "Each year the police services write between two and four POGs," explained Det. Ferguson. "We have developed a plan this year with different investigative strategies that hopefully will increase our solve rate. We want criminals to know that if they continue to steal from vehicles, we will catch them and ensure charges are laid in every case possible," added Const. Wilton. "We can allocate our staff members in certain areas of the city at times that have a higher occurrence of crime," said Det. Ferguson. "We can use foot, bike and car patrols to see who is out and about in those areas." Motor vehicle theft has been a common problem for our community for some time. In 2010, Camrose had 145 reported occurrences of theft from vehicles. In 2011, there were 180 (with two of them being thefts that were of items valued over $5,000), and in 2012 there were 167 (with again two occurrences being thefts of items that were valued at over $5,000). "Don't leave your laptop computer, or any other valuables in plain view. That's an invitation, or opportunity for someone to go get it. I'm always amazed at how much cash some people leave in their vehicles," added Det. Ferguson. "These numbers are most likely under-reported, since I am sure that many thefts of smaller items and occurrences of only rummaged through vehicles do not necessarily get reported," said Const. Wilton. "We do encourage everyone to report this type of crime no matter what the circumstances because it helps us to know what areas to target." Continued on page 36

Sign of spring's arrival By Dan Jensen

You know spring has officially arrived when the City of Camrose releases the swans. City of Camrose parks staff returned four trumpeter swans to Mirror Lake and two Polish mute swans to Duggan Pond May 2. The swans are housed during the winter at an abode next to the arena and are released as soon as there are enough open water bodies. "They have been anxious to get out for the last two months," said Twylene Swanson, lead hand with the City of Camrose parks department." The release date for the swans one year ago was April 17. "The ice on the lake last-

ed much longer this year," said Swanson. While Camrose swans are wild and adept at finding their own food, the City of Camrose has feeders set up for them, one on Mirror Lake and one on the north shore, next to the walking bridge. "Some people feed them bread but if they get too much that isn't good for their stomachs," said parks department lead hand Helen Halsten. Swans have been gracing Mirror Lake since 1962, when the City of Halifax donated a pair of Polish mutes, affectionately known as Hal and Faxi. The City currently maintains a close relationship with both the Canadian Wildlife Service and Friends of Elk Island Park

Society, and has participated in various swan education and conservation initiatives. The City also assists conservation efforts by welcoming orphaned or injured birds, including geese and pelicans, into its winter facility. "We had a tundra swan from the Calgary area that we looked after this past winter," explained Halsten. "It's smaller than the trumpeter swan and makes a kind of whistling sound. Its distinguishing mark is yellow beside the eye." Camrosians are encouraged to be careful around swans as they are wild and unpredictable creatures. "You don't know what they are going to do when you approach them," said Halsten.

Chamber members receive advice on preventing fraud By Dan Jensen

If you carry your social insurance number or birth certificate with you in your wallet or purse you could be asking for trouble. "If your wallet gets stolen and it has your social insurance number in it the person (who stole the wallet) has a key piece of information they can use to get a loan or go into a business to get a line of credit," said Camrose Police Service Cst. Matthew Wilton in a presentation to members of the Camrose Chamber of Commerce May 1. "The same goes for your birth certificate. Keep those two things locked up." Cst. Wilton said there were 17,000 victims of identity theft in

Canada in 2011, with losses totalling $13 million. "Criminals are doing things like dumpster diving and stealing from mailboxes (to obtain personal information). We had one fellow two weeks ago who came to the front counter who had a creditor trying to come after him to pay $1,600 for a Virgin Mobile cell phone that he had in is name. He has never gone with Virgin Mobile before. Somebody had stolen his identity and opened up an account under his name." In another case, Cst. Wilton said a man had $16,000 stolen from his bank account shortly after providing information to a fake bank web page.

Cst. Wilton said it is a good idea to shred personal documents like credit card statements and review bills that you have been paid. He noted that the AMA will be hosting a shredding event on June 8 in which Camrose and area residents can bring up to six banker boxes of personal information to be shredded in their presence. Cst. Wilton cautioned against entering free draws if you are not familiar with the person or organization that is offering them. "I know trade shows often have you entering to win a vacation or a trip but now you are giving your name, your phone number and your address, and

from there that is where you are going to start getting targeted. Some of these people who attend are vendors from out of town. You don't know what they are going to do with the information once the trade show is over. Sometimes they sell it to make additional profits, to cover their costs. Chances are if you enter something your email address and your phone number are going to end up on somebody's list somewhere." Cst. Wilton said mass emailings and phone solicitations are becoming more and more profitable for fraudsters. "Across Canada in 2011 there were 46,000 complaints of mass market fraud with 14,000

victims. That is probably fairly underreported because a lot of people don't report this type of occurrence. They are too embarrassed to come to police or let people know, or they don't believe the police can do anything for them, which is not necessarily true. There is a national agency called Phone Busters, run by the RCMP. They work on everything across Canada. Whenever someone comes to our counter who has been a victim we take their information. We do whatever we can for them but we also refer them to this agency, which is then better able to track the names, track the phone numbers, track the web addresses."

Legion marks 70th anniversary of Battle of Atlantic The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion and the City of Camrose commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic with a wreathlaying ceremony at the Legion cenotaph May 5. The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest running battle of the Second World War and represented an outstanding contribution by Canadians to the war effort. "The heroic Royal Canadian Navy, Charter Merchant Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force members helped the Allies attain a crucial victory," said Minister of Veterans Affairs Steven Blaney. German U-boats tried to cut Allied supply routes across the Atlantic. This threatened the transportation of vital goods and personnel from North America to Britain. The Royal Canadian Navy, Merchant Navy and RCAF played a key role in the efforts to maintain this crucial lifeline in the face of the constant enemy threat. More than 4,600 Canadians gave their lives at sea during the Battle of the Atlantic. "The men and women who served during this historic battle will forever be remembered for their valiant service and remarkable bravery," said Blaney. Although the Battle of the Atlantic was fought from 1939 to 1945, May, 1943 has been recognized as the turning point in the battle when the Allied forces finally gained the upper hand and managed to turn the tide against the U-boat threat. However, the battle went on until May, 1945, and it wasn't over until the last day of the war in Europe.

The HMCS Camrose Corvette, a model of which sits behind glass at the Royal Canadian Legion, played an important role during the Battle of the Atlantic. Without the protection of it and 121 other Canadian flower-class Corvettes, the merchant vessels carrying weapons, food, oil, raw materials and manufactured goods from North America to the United Kingdom may have been sunk by attacking U-boats of the German Navy. The transport ships carrying soldiers and equipment may not have reached the beaches of Normandy, France, on D-Day in June, 1944, and victories in critical battles may never have been achieved. Designed by Great Britain along the lines of whale ships, flower-class Corvettes were labelled by Winston Churchill as "cheap and nasties" – "cheap" because they could be produced for approximately $500,000 and "nasty" because of their four-inch guns and the ability to carry asdic and minesweeping equipment. According to Mac John-

ston, author of Corvettes Canada, Convoy Veterans of World War II Tell their True Stories, the Corvette wasn't as fast as another ship called the Bramble Sloop, but was seen as fast enough, and its endurance was seen as sufficient for coastal escort missions. The ship was 205 feet long and 33 feet wide – big enough at the end of the war to carry five officers and 64 men. The Camrose Corvette was launched on the 16th day of November, 1940, at Sorel, Quebec, where it was built by Marine Industries, and was commissioned on the 30th day of June, 1941. Lt. L.R. Pavillard was the Commanding Officer from 1941 to 1944, followed from 1944 to 1945 by James Lamb, who has written a number of books on his experiences, and was Commanding Officer when the ship rescued the survivors of the Corvette Louisburg after the latter had been torpedoed in the Mediterranean. The HMCS Camrose was employed as an ocean escort to and from Iceland until February, 1942, when she commenced a major refit at Lunenburg. Upon

completion in May she resumed her mid-ocean escort duties for one round trip to Londonderry. In October she was allocated to duties concerned with the invasion of North Africa. She left Halifax on October 20 for the UK, and for the next five months escorted convoys between Britain and the Mediterranean. In April, 1943, she proceeded to Pictou, Nova Scotia, for a refit lasting five and a half months. In December of 1943 she left for Londonderry, where she was based for the next four months in support of convoys, especially to and from Freetown and Gibraltar. She shared with the HMS Bayntun the sinking of U757 in the North Atlantic on January 8, 1944. Men who served on the HMCS Camrose ranged from prairie farmers to large city dwellers, most of whom had never been on a large ship in their lives and were forced, at times, due to low supplies, to live on diets of hard tack or corned beef in a can. Their appearance, often ragged because of sea sickness, inexperience and disregard for naval tra-

dition, was of particular concern to the British, who had strong and different feelings about the way the Navy should be operated. Of the 10 Canadian Corvettes sunk in World War II, seven were lost by torpedoing. In May, 1945, HMCS Camrose joined Western Approaches Command, Greenock, for invasion duties, escorting convoys to staging points, and to and from Normandy beaches. She left the UK on September 2 for another refit at Pictou, followed by workups in Bermuda, returning in January, 1945, to become a member of EG 41, Plymouth. She served with this group until VE Day, afterward participating in the reoccupation of St. Helier in the Channel Islands. HMCS Camrose left Greenock for home early in June 1945 and was paid off at Sydney on July 22. She was broken up in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1947. Calgary, Drumheller, Wetaskiwin and Lethbridge were the other four Alberta communities which sponsored HMCS flower-class Corvettes.

Camrose Corvette Auxiliary provided comforts By Dan Jensen

The reason the Canadian government asked cities and towns to sponsor an HMCS flower-class Corvette was that the men on board the ships might have something in the way of comforts. Corvettes were built as a place to eat and work, so creature comforts were in short supply. The sailors had no radios, no games, none of the simple things to fill their time. They didn't even have a washing machine, so everyone, from the captain on down, had to do laundry in a sink. The Corvette Camrose Auxiliary was formed by 31 ladies of the town on Tuesday, May 20, 1941, at the Legion Hall, with the purpose of meeting the needs of the men on HMCS Camrose. The auxiliary's initial plans were to raise funds to

pay for materials and supplies that could be sent to the crew by conducting a concert at the Bailey Theatre, as well as by holding a tag day, in which cords for the lapel would be sold as a reminder of the town's association with the ship. At the auxiliary's second meeting, members agreed to communicate with the ship's commanding officer, Lt. Pavillard, in regard to whether or not a radio would be an acceptable gift to the ship, as well as to ask that the organization be kept informed as to any particular comfort needs the men might appreciate from time to time. Decisions were made to purchase board games, not to exceed $25, to purchase $25 for wool for mitts, and to hold a fund-raising tea. The Corvette Camrose Auxiliary soon began gather-

ing the support of other community organizations. Minutes from the meeting of June 24, 1941, reported that the Camrose branch of the Canadian Legion, the Camrose Rotary Club and the Camrose Board of Trade had donated radios, and the Elks Lodge $100. In September, 1941, the auxiliary heard from Donald Hartman, seaman from the Restigouche, who gave "an interesting talk on some of his adventures." Hartman was presented with cigarettes and mitts as a remembrance of his visit. The number of cigarettes sent to the HMCS Camrose has been estimated to be around 153,000. On October, 21, 1941, the auxiliary discussed plans for a Christmas bake sale. On March 16, 1943, it was moved that the auxiliary send a parcel to

HMCS Camrose with playing cards, chocolate bars and knitting. Members suggested that a letter be sent to the Town of Camrose asking for a grant of $100 so that the auxiliary might carry on its work. Writing to A.E.F. Cary, Esq., secretary treasurer, Town of Camrose, the auxiliary Ways and Means committee convenor noted that the auxiliary, in the time it had been in operation, had expended over $360 in supplying the crew of Camrose Corvette, consisting of 61 officers and men, with comforts and clothing, with money from a tag day, donations, running a booth at the Kinsmen carnival and membership fees. The letter stated that the auxiliary had forwarded three large boxes at an average cost of $120 each, the contents consisting in each case of fruit cakes, candy,

games, and in all, 225 knitted items. "This is the first time the auxiliary has found it necessary to appeal to the Town of Camrose for any assistance whatsoever," said the letter, "but if the same service is to be extended heretofore, a grant of this amount will be necessary, as the wool for knitted materials alone will cost this amount. The auxiliary is of the opinion that the public should not be asked to contribute by means of another tag day at the present time, at least in view of the heavy demands that have already been made." The work of the Corvette Camrose Auxiliary came to an end after a letter from the Department of National Defence stated the HMCS Camrose was ready to be decomissioned and would require no further sponsorship.

Retire with style in adult setting

RCMP provide high speed escort By Dan Jensen

A Killam man has even greater respect for police after a recent incident involving himself and his uncle. Darren White received a high speed escort to the Camrose hospital after his uncle, Ron Williams, started encountering difficulties with his heart while driving north on Highway 21, just south of Highway 13. "He (Ron) was driving but he started having chest pains and a hard time breathing," said White, "so he pulled over and we switched." Realizing he had to get to the hospital as quickly as possible, Ron started speeding. When he saw an RCMP car on the side of the road with its lights flashing he pulled over, hoping he would be able to receive some assistance. "The officer came up to the window and I explained to her what was happening – that Ron was having chest pains and I was rushing him to the hospital," said Darren. "I thought the officer would want to put him in the back of her vehicle but, instead, she said she would provide an escort. She pulled in front of me, turned on her lights and siren and I followed her. "We were going at pretty high speeds." Once they reached City limits they were joined by another police vehicle. "We proceeded through the traffic to the hospital with the RCMP in front of me and the sheriff behind me clearing traffic," said White. "When we got to the hospital the sheriff gentleman came and helped me walk and run to the emergency entrance." The doctor in emergency room ran tests and concluded that Williams had experienced a heart murmur. White said there is no way he would have been able to get to the hospital as quickly as he did without police assistance. "My hat is definitely off to them. The service that they gave was absolutely phenomenal. It was just instinct for them. The lady officer was very well trained and assisted us beyond the call of duty." White called the RCMP after leaving the hospital and asked the person at the switchboard to pass along his message of thanks to the officer who assisted him. "I wasn't able to speak with her directly," said White, "but she is definitely going to be on my Christmas card list."

professor releases new CD recording By Dan Jensen

A pair of larger than life historical figures are brought together in a new CD by Augustana music professor Milton Schlosser. Entitled 1890, the CD includes the world-premiere recording of Crowfoot, a 12-minute composition written for Schlosser in 2010 by University of Alberta graduate and Metis artist Nicholas Howells to commemorate the life of Chief Crowfoot, as well as pieces by Johannes Brahms, one of the most wellknown and well-loved musical figures of 19th century Europe. "I chose the title because 1890 was a year in which Chief Crowfoot and Brahms made contributions to society that will always be remembered," said Schlosser. Crowfoot contains, among other aboriginal aspects, the speaking words attributed to Chief Crowfoot around the time of his death in 1890: "What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." Continued on page 29

Camrose Spirals qualify for nationals in Ontario By Dan Jensen

Six members of the Camrose Spirals will be attending the National Skipping Championships at Brock University, just outside St. Catharines, Ontario, this coming Victoria Day weekend. Myles Bogstie, Brock Proctor, Taytem Syrnyk and Olivia Mah will be competing in both team and individual events, while Tashina Bogstie will be competing in just the team events. Austin Naslund will be competing in individual events. "Tashina sustained an ankle injury at the beginning of the year so she decided to save her strength for the team events rather than overdo it by competing in both team and individual," said former Camrose Spirals competitive coach Janine Carroll. The nationals will feature 300 of the best skippers from across Canada, as well as some from the United States. "In order to come home with a medal you have to work very hard," said Carroll. "There are always a lot of good competitors." Team competitions at nationals consist of eight events, four of which are single rope and four of which are double dutch. Individual competitions involve four events, three of which are speed and one freestyle. The Camrose Spirals have

Members of the Camrose Spirals travelled to Edmonton April 12 to conduct workshops for seven physical education classes at the Alberta School for the Deaf. One of the mothers described the trip as an amazing day for the soul, and that the students and the teachers at the Alberta School for the Deaf were amazing. Pictured are: (left to right, back) Olivia Mah, Kaleigh Taschuk, Shelby Hall, Janine Carroll, (centre, left to right) Brock Proctor, Brynne Lafrance, Matthew Bridger, Hope Reimer, Beth Jarrett, (front, left to right) Jadia Johnson, Emily Bridger, Keighly Gibson and Maddie Jarrett.

The University of Alberta, Augustana Campus and Vikings men’s basketball program announced the commitment by Nathan Schakel to the Vikings beginning in the 2013-14 season. Nathan joins the Vikings after a memorable career with the Strathcona Christian Academy Eagles. Nathan’s hard work, dedication and sense-of-themoment play made him a key ingredient of the Eagles’ ASAA 2A Championship this spring. “I can’t say enough about the great job coach Vince Reynolds is doing at SCA, and Nathan is certainly a great example of the quality of people and basketball players coming out of their program,” said Vikings coach Dave Drabiuk. To close out his high school basketball career, Nathan’s Eagles won the 2A boys' championship and the Edmonton Metro City Championship. In addition to team success, Nathan was also named MVP of the Edmonton City Metro League, a 2013 Edmonton Journal All-star and an allstar in the team's own Eagles Invitational tournament. A strong student in the classroom, Nathan has been an honour student all through high school and will enter a Bachelor of Science program majoring in biology with designs on dentistry as his profession.

skipping championships, which were held in Grimshaw, April 20 and 21. "We had quite a few skippers place in the medals," said Carroll. "The senior and junior teams took home gold medals while the intermediate team won the silver." The number of skippers attending the championships was lower than normal because of its geographical location in the province. "Attending it would have meant a long drive for the teams from southern Alberta," said Carroll. The Camrose Spirals will be sending about a half dozen skippers to a camp in Seattle in July, and will be hosting its usual annual invitational skillbuilding workshop in November. The team is also making plans to host a camp in 2014. Fund-raising dinner The Camrose Spirals will be hosting a fund-raising dinner (roast beef buffet with all the trimmings) at Malorie's Cakes and Catering Inc. on Mother's Day (May 12). The dinner will have two sittings, one from 12:30 to 3:30 and the other from 4:30 to 7:30. Tickets for the fund-raising dinner may be purchased from Malorie's Cakes and Catering, 5105-50 Avenue, or from any member of the Camrose Spirals.

Many people from Camrose and area recently displayed their talents in the annual Camrose and District Music Festival. The wonderful week of music, dance, and speech culminated in an extremely enjoyable Grand Concert on April 20. The Camrose and District Music Festival, which ran from April 15 to 19, provided opportunity for participants in voice, musical theatre, strings, band, choral, instrumental, dance, and speech arts to perform for audiences and adjudicators at various venues in Camrose. The adjudicators are musicians, actors, or dancers with a high level of training, performance, and teaching experience who encourage the festival performers and work with them to help them develop their skills. The Festival Committee congratulates all the festival participants on their performances, and thanks the volunteers and donors for making the festival possible through their time and gifts.

Milton Schlosser releases new CD featuring student's composition

"It combines classical music techniques with Howell's own musical heritage," stated Schlosser. "In part of it I play the piano at the same time as I play a foot drum." Chief Crowfoot is regarded as one of the great men in Canadian history. "The federal riding that we are in is named after him," said Schlosser, who has performed Howell's Crowfoot in Canada, the United States and Japan, and will be giving the European premier at the Canadian embassy in Berlin June 6. "What many people don't know is that the federal government is going to be redistributing the federal ridings at the next election so the riding of Crowfoot is going to disappear." Brahm's compositions in the year of Chief Crowfoot's death are considered some of his finest. "In 1890, at the height of his popularity as a composer and concert pianist, an exhausted Brahms declared that he would compose no more, stating 'it is high time to stop'," said Schlosser. "However, he then proceeded to write some of his most beautiful piano works, including the collections Opus 117 and Opus 118. For over a century, music listeners have admired these two collections for their skillful construction, arresting intimacy, and passion." While Schlosser is proud of all the CDs he has produced, 1890 holds a special place. "It feels like an intimate project not just because I live in the Crowfoot riding but also because Crowfoot was written by a former student," said Schlosser. "Both his composition and the works of Brahms are exquisite reflective works. When you open the CD cover and look at the back of the CD booklet, you can see that I dedicated it to my mother. It felt to me like that was the right thing to do." The CD recording was funded by the University of Alberta's President's Fund for the Creative and Performing Arts. With few aboriginal composers active in the Western European tradition, the CD is significant for showcasing Howell's unique artistic voice. The writer of the liner notes for the CD, Elizabeth Clarke, is a U of A student who will be graduating this spring. The CD is available at Camrose's Candler Art Gallery, as well as at University of Alberta bookstores. It will be released later this year on iTunes.

Be a contestant in Take No Bull ride By Murray Green

If you have ever wanted to ride a bull during the Big Valley Jamboree Parade, then the Family Violence Action Society (FVAS) has a contest for you. And if you have a "better him than me" attitude, you're also in luck. You could be a contestant in Take No Bull or nominate your best friend (or worst enemy) to compete for the right to ride a Brahma-cross steer called Wild West Willie (from Bentley) downtown during the BVJ parade on August 1. "We wanted something different and novel. Riding a 3,000 pound Brahma steer in a parade is something the winner probably will never experience again. It is a unique opportunity for fun and friendly competition in the spirit of charitable fundraising," said Sheralyn Dobos, program director for the Family Violence Action Society. "The bull is actually a seasoned veteran of parades and is very tame. He has been in the Calgary Stampede every year since 2005 and the famous Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena (California)." Wild West Willie is so mildmannered that he went for a stroll on the second floor of the Banff Springs Hotel with the president of a company on his back, while more than 400 people cheered him on in a banquet hall. "The organizers of the banquet forgot to tell people in attendance not to stand up and applaud when Willie came in. So it was like this tidal wave of people hooting, clapping and hollering and Willie didn't miss a beat," said Sheralyn. A fundraising duel will decide who will have the opportunity to be riding high in front of all of Camrose. “The contest will raise awareness of family violence as a community issue. We can draw attention to our programs and services for people who want to take responsibility for their actions and create a stable, respectful home life." You can make a difference for children, men and women who want the abuse to stop. "We are looking for as many contestants as

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Camrose County Reeve Don Gregorwich, right, challenged City of Camrose councillor Ray McIsaac to ride a steer in the Big Valley Jamboree Parade, while Family Violence Action Society program director Sheralyn Dobos refereed. Community members are asked to join in the fund-raising event to determine who gets to ride Wild West Willie in the August 1 parade. The real winners will be the Family Violence Action Society and the programs it delivers.

we can get at this time. Contestants must be available and willing to ride Wild West Willie. They can register on their own or may identify and challenge a friendly rival. A challenge will involve raising funds in the rival’s name with a goal that he/she might be selected to ride in the parade," explained Sheralyn. Pledges are to be raised from June 1 to July 26 to support the work of Family Violence Action Society. Donations can be made online and are eligible for tax receipts. Contestants are not expected to handle funds. Contestants using social media

are asked to “like” Take No Bull on Facebook. Contestants must be at least 18 years of age on the date of the parade. FVAS will be supplying business cards for contestants to promote their fundraising, encourage online giving and list local businesses where cash donations will be received. An online charitable donation page for each contestant will be made. "The top 10 fundraisers will be eligible to ride the steer in the parade. A draw will be made at a luncheon for all contestants on July 26. Each of the top 10 entries will

have one entry in the draw per $100 raised in his/her name," Sheralyn stated. "The first name drawn is to be the rider in the BVJ Parade. He or she will be named supreme champion, presented with the 2013 Take no Bull trophy buckle and receive a custom-framed portrait upon completing the ride." A draw for the second and third names will be made to serve as runners-up in the event the Supreme Champion cannot, for any reason, take part in the champion ride. Second and third will each receive a custom-framed portrait of themselves on or with Wild West

Willie, and two tickets to one performance of the 2014 Camrose Spring Classic Rodeo. The fourth name drawn will receive two tickets to one performance at the Camrose Spring Classic Rodeo. Alberta has the fifth highest rate of police reported intimate partner violence and has the second highest rate of self-reported spousal violence. Every hour of every day in Alberta, a woman will undergo some form of interpersonal violence from an ex-partner or ex-spouse. Men may also be victims of domestic violence in both same-gender and opposite-gender relationships. In Camrose last year, Family Violence Action Society provided counselling for 60 adults, nine couples and 17 children, totaling 349 hours of counselling service for people affected by family violence. Group programs were completed by 55 adults. Changing Ways and Choices are separate groups for men and women who have experience with family violence. Anger Management class is provided for people with anger that affects them in work, social or other settings, rather than specifically in spousal relationships. School-based programming was completed by 26 youth, supporting them to gain a wide range of leadership and coping skills. Most services are available at no charge. Additional information on group programs are available at Contestant applications are available at, or can be picked up at the office of Camrose and District Support Services. Watch for the Take No Bull fundraising page launching soon. Pledges will be raised and gratefully accepted from June 1 to July 26. For more information contact Sheralyn Dobos at email cdss5@ or call 780-672-0141.

Kingman producers help feed the world By Murray Green

What do a widow from Niger, Africa, and the Kingman Marketing Group (a local group of farmers) have in common? For one thing, they both rely on the land for their livelihood. But, they are also connected through the work of Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a partnership of 15 Canadian churches and church-based agencies working together to end global hunger. Ramatou Malon Hassan is a widow and mother of 12 from Niger. The last four years have been a constant struggle. Affected by drought and a poor harvest, Ramatou was not able to provide enough food for her family. Though she worked night and day, she watched as her children went hungry and grew weak and listless from lack of food. However, things took a turn for the better last spring, when Ramatou and others in need in her community received a food ration of millet, black eyed peas, and oil through a Foodgrains Bank-supported project – assis-

tance that meant her children once again had the energy to play. “I am thanking God and thanking you for the help,” she says with a wide smile to the organization. Hearing that put smiles on the faces of the farmers in the Kingman Marketing Group. The group has about 20 members. “The land has been good to us and this is one way for members of our group to give back and to help people who don’t have what we have,” said project member Guy Anderson, of efforts to assist people like Ramatou improve her life through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. The group has named its growing project Kingman Grains for the Hungry and it will join over 200 other projects from across Canada that grow a crop in support of the Foodgrains Bank. "We wanted to be involved in the Foodgrains project because it fits into most of our occupations as producers and our rural community," added Guy. "It is a Christian project that we wanted to support. Our members belong to seven or

eight different churches, so this will be a good community project." The group has set aside 140 acres located in the Kingman area along Highway 883 two miles north of Highway 617. The field will be planted in canola this spring. Group members will help with the field work, and organizers will seek support from local agribusiness as well as other organizations and individuals to provide for inputs and other expenses. In this way all of the funds raised can go to help people like Ramatou. "One of the good things about a project like this, is that the federal government will match our donation four to one," explained Guy. "If we donate $50,000 it is matched four to one to become a nice $250,000 donation." Guy expects the canola crop to generate between $60,000 and $70,000, depending on the crop conditions. "We are going to insure the crop, so it will give us a minimum of about $56,000. It all depends on the growing season how well we will do, just like any other crop."

In the past, the Foodgrains Bank sent Canadian grain overseas. Today crops grown by growing projects like Kingman's Grains for the Hungry are sold on the Canadian market, with the money used to buy food closer to people who need – something that saves money on shipping costs, saves time in getting food to where it is needed, and also supports local farmers in the developing world. The Grains for the Hungry Project encourages individuals and organizations to participate in this project through monetary donations. Donations of any size are welcome and will be issued charitable tax receipts from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. For every $200 donation, donors will be able to sponsor an acre. The amount is approximately the cost of the direct inputs needed to seed one acre of canola. Sponsor an Acre donors will receive special recognition for their generous donation. "The more sponsors and donations we receive, the more we can pass on to the Foodgrains

projects. People can help us in many ways," Guy said. Last year, growing projects raised $5.5 million for the Foodgrains Bank – money that was used to support millions of people in need around the world. “We are so thankful for the growing project across Canada that make it possible for us to work towards our vision of a world without hunger,” said Foodgrains Bank executive director, Jim Cornelius. “They are the heart and soul of the Foodgrains Bank.” Funds raised by growing projects are combined with donations from other Canadians and support from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to fund the Foodgrains Bank’s food assistance, food security and nutrition projects around the world. Last year, the Foodgrains Bank provided about $44 million of assistance for 2.1 million people in 36 countries.

Jeep Wrangler The confidence to go anywhere By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Jeep Wrangler at Camrose Chrysler gives you the confidence to go anywhere and do anything. "It expands your horizons with best in class capability, a 285 horsepower Pentastar VVT V6 engine and an enhanced interior designed for comfort," said Camrose Chrysler sales manager Denis Mercier. Standing tall The traction provided by Jeep Wrangler helps you maintain controlled forward motion on snowy backroads and icy bridges. Tru-Lok front and rear electronic differentials balance speed between the left and right wheels, maintaining forward momentum for the ultimate in traction. An instrument panel mounted rocker switch can lock either the rear or both axles. The suspension system enhances on- and off-road performance by maximizing flexibility, axle articulation and wheel travel. Solid axles with locating arms, coil springs, track/stabilizer bars, front steering damper and tunable monotube shock absorbers are firm at low speeds and more relaxed at higher speeds. The articulation standard indicates that when one or more wheels are elevated the Jeep 4x4 system helps the others stay on the ground longer to keep you moving. Wrangler's approach, departure and breakover angles are designed to let you clear logs, rocks and uneven ground. The undercarriage is protected with forged skid plates that cover the most valuable underbody elements. Additional electrical and body seals give Wrangler the capability to safety manage in up to 76 cm if water, while precision steering and optimized wheelbases ensure the ability to navigate narrow gaps, dodge emergency situations, and avoid cosmetic damage to underbody sills. Stamped steel skid plates defend the fuel tank and transfer case.

Raw power The 3.6 Pentastar engine with variable valve timing (VVT) roars to life, delivering an impressive 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. "With exceptional refinement and power the Pentastar engine answered the quest for the right amount of muscle to match Wrangler's legendary brawn," states Jeep. "It moves forward with a unique oil pan, an acoustic engine cover to help mask noise, optimized upper intake airflow for torque, and added equal length downpipes to assist low and mid range torque response." Also unique to the Pentastar are the front end accessory drive and high mounted rear facing alternator for water fording. The Pentastar comes standard with an exceptionally capable six-speed manual. Or, you can opt for the smooth shifting five-speed automatic. This strategically optimized automatic operates in an efficient RPM range, which helps maximize fuel economy, while its low first gear ratio gives off-road capability via a lower overall crawl ratio.

features a convenient cable release that quickly lets the sunshine in without having to fold back the entire top. Or, fold and tuck it all away. It's made of a three-ply fabric that helps deflect road sounds, absorb wind noise, and enhance insulation. The spring-lift assist on Wrangler Unlimited models helps make your soft top easier to open and close. The Freedom Top Hardtop allows sun-exposure conJohn Wigston trol by separating into three Camrose Chrysler easy-to-store pieces. Plus, on Sahara and Rubicon models, your hardtop colour can match your paint colour. First class ride The Jeep Wrangler is finely wrought with classic design details.

Peace of mind The Jeep Wrangler offers peace of mind that takes you and yours far. Electronic Stability Control is designed to assist drivers in maintaining control of their vehicle. It utilizes hydraulic brake assist, traction control, Electronic Roll Mitigation and Trailer Sway Control to constantly monitor driver input against the vehicle's actual course. If needed, ESC automatically brakes and/or reduces engine torque, while ERM estimates the potential need for wheel lift, reducing engine power and applying the brakes if needed. TSC detects sway unique to trailering and engages the brakes to slow the vehicle, increasing brake force to one side of the vehicle to help counteract the sway from the trailer. ESC has three modes: full-on, partial-on (shuts off traction control), and full-off (ideal for road driving). The Enhanced Accident Response System makes it easier for emergency personnel to see and reach occupants in the event of an accident by turning on interior lighting, flashing hazard lamps and unlocking doors after air bag deployment. It also shuts off the flow of fuel to the engine once the vehicle comes to a stop.

You can see the 2013 Jeep Wrangler at Camrose Chrysler, on Highway 13 East. Phone 780-672-2476 or toll free 1-800-563-4202 and ask for a member of the friendly sales team.

cil of Canada and currently is a vice-president of the Camrose Regional Exhibition. "I represented the canola industry at the World Trade talks and missions throughout Asia, Europe, Australia and North America," Stew explained. "Representing this $13.5 billion industry is why I received the award." In the past, he has been a board member of the Alberta Grains Council, a director of the Alberta Canola Producers Commission, an executive board member of the Western Agri-Food Institute, a senior associate for 17 years with the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede, vice-president of FarmTech, director of the Prairie Oat Growers, chair of the Canadian Adaptation and Rural Development Fund and executive member of the Ag and Food Council just to name a few of the organizations he has helped over the years. Being honoured by his friends was a great tribute for Stew. "I was absolutely humbled by the experience and it was a surprise. It was an honour because it was presented by people in my own industry, by my peers. It was at the annual general meeting in front of all these people. All my great friends and people I have admired were all there. It really shook me." The Canola Council of Can-

4709-36 Street, Camrose, AB

ada and the Alberta Canola Producers Commission both nominated Stew for the medal. "When I asked Patti Miller, the council president, she said the list was too long to say." Stew thinks the new Cargill canola facility is a great opportunity for area producers to deliver to a local source. "I have had the opportunity to work with Cargill in the past and they are a wonderful corporate citizen. They can take our product all over the world," he said. "The nice thing about big business putting in big dollars into our agricultural industry is that once they have made that investment, they are committed to a lot of promotion. This is great for the entire community. It gives us confidence in the marketplace." Camrose would be an ideal site for canola growers to converge for provincial and national conventions. "My region 11 is the biggest canola producing area in the world. It would be great to take Japanese delegates up in a small plane and show them the fields when they are in full bloom. We are only 45 minutes away from the international airport and we have our own airport. It is something that I'm working on," he said. Stew has a passion for politics, golf, the community and his family. "The reason I joined the


CRE board is because most of my time has been spent provincially, nationally and internationally. I felt I wanted to do more volunteering at home. I also like being involved in baseball and hockey," admitted Stew. In his spare time, Stew coaches sports teams. "Another one of the reasons I received this award was that in the middle of the ball season, I had heart surgery," he added. "The year before we went 17-1 and this year we were 2-7 when I had the surgery and my wife Andrea took over. She coached the team to a 7-2 record and won the B-side of the league." Stew said jokingly, "It wasn't the coaching that caused too much stress, it was the fact I was trying to squeeze in way too much fun over the years. I slowed down 20 years ago, but I think there was a debt to pay." The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

Police target theft from vehicles Continued from page 18

It is time to take additional action. "We have always taken these occurrences seriously, but rather this year we are going to be employing some new investigative strategies and ensuring that our members are aggressively enforcing the law when it comes to these types of thefts," said Const. Wilton. "We understand that public education will assist our cause. We find that the simple act of locking car doors and rolling up windows drastically reduces the risk of this type of theft. In fact a significant percentage of our occurrences is from unlocked vehicles. We rarely ever see occurrences where criminals have broken windows or damaged door locks to gain entry. The few cases that we have seen can be attributed to valuable property being left out in plain view." It is important to lock your vehicle doors. "I also would like to remind everyone to remove any valuable items from their vehicles. We find that criminals often target things such as loose change, electronics (GPSs, iPods, laptops, etc), wallets, purses, tools and personal documents. Another important tip to remember is to ensure that any spare sets of keys are not left inside the vehicle," added Const. Wilton. "A large major-

ity of the theft of vehicles we investigate can be attributed to the vehicle being successfully stolen because a spare set of keys was left inside the car." The AMA and police service have joined forces to create an All Valuables Removed program. "This program supplies free yellow placards that vehicles owners can display in their vehicle's window to show criminals that there is nothing of value inside the vehicle. This can then prevent a criminal from trying to target your vehicle; as well, the placard acts as a great reminder to us to remember to lock our car doors," said Const. Wilton. The placards can be picked up from the front counter at the police station. Any business that would like to display the placards for their customers can contact Const. Wilton to have some delivered. "I especially would like to encourage any business that is related to the automobile industry to have these placards available for their customers." Crime may have immediate gains, but in the long run it doesn't pay. "It's not worth getting a criminal record, or a long one because it can limit your opportunities in life," said Det. Ferguson.

University of Alberta, Augustana Campus research assistant Wynn Coates and Alberta Health Services clinical lead for eduction and mental health Mary Wilton examine the kitchen in one of the basement suites at the Camrose Open Door Association's newly renovated Maurer Hall housing facility. Wynn is currently conducting a needs assessment on rural homelessness.

The Camrose Open Door Association (CODA) provided an opportunity for Camrose residents to see inside their newly renovated Maurer Hall housing facility before it was occupied. "Through the support of the federal homelessness partnering strategy we were able to do pretty much a full renovation, everything except the roof,” said executive director Randal Nickel. "That includes a new boiler and furnace. We added a full kitchen to help with skill building, cooking and cleaning, and to create a bit of a family atmosphere." Formerly the Gardner College dormitory, Maurer Hall was purchased by CODA and designated as a place where youth and young adults in Camrose could go if they had nowhere else to stay. "We installed video cameras in the commons areas and by the entrances, so we can monitor who is coming in and out," added Randal. "We have overnight staff watching the monitor without having to leave the office room." The emergency rooms are for shorter stays. The new apartments will help youth make the transition from short-term housing to searching for employment and then on to more permanent housing. "During the winter we were running about 90 per cent occupancy. Seven of the eight beds are in use and we even have the eighth person's belongings still here, so you could call it 100 per cent right now," said Randal last month. "We don't have a maximum stay period, but there is some triaging that goes on here. If we are near capacity and someone comes in, it puts staff in the difficult situation of determining who stays and who has to go." The bright windows and warm blankets offer a positive place to stay for the youth at risk. "We always have a challenge in determining how many beds we need. We are having a needs study done to determine where we should be at," said Randal. "We wanted to create an apartment type of setting. It gives them (residents) more freedom as they re-enter the work force. Because someone moves from upstairs to the downstairs apartments, it doesn't mean we won't be checking on them. We might be checking on them more because they will be spending more time alone," explained Randal.

“A couple of months ago someone came to us and said they had heard about the facility and someone told them it was the homeless Hilton,” said Randal. “First I got angry, but my second response was that maybe that’s a great learning opportunity for us to put out there, that there is no reason for us to treat people as second class. Often you get what you give. So if you can give respect, we’ve found very little damage over the years that we’ve provided housing.” Renovations to the bottom level of the hall were recently completed and there are now four single bedroom suites available (in addition to the eight emergency beds on the upper level). CODA hopes to use the suites to help ease the transitional time between homelessness and trying to find a permanent residence, renting them at a modest monthly cost. “They are self-contained onebedroom apartments. I think they are much nicer than a lot of basement suites, or things like that people might access,” said Randal. “There’s no sense in treating people as second class citizens just because they may be homeless, or not have the family connections in place.” Randal said it is often very difficult for young adults to transition out of emergency housing because they may not have support. “Part of the reason for creating these (suites) was to help with that a little bit because we’ve found someone would maybe come in for emergency housing, then be able to get an apartment with a few others in the community and then often that just fell apart,” Randal said. “Afterwards ideally we’d love to be able to have relationships with landlords to be able to provide some of that in the community to clients who have moved on from us, if they want it.” A number of other upgrades were also completed and include new video surveillance equipment in all of the communal areas, linoleum flooring, a communal lounge space equipped with a television, movies and games as well as a communal kitchen/dining room facility. “We also feel that the social area is very important because that’s a huge part of it. Most of the youth that we’re working with may not have experienced the opportunity to sit and have a family style dinner,” Randal said.

Just ask small business owners Russ and Doneal Greipl, R & D Hot Tubs. The full page Booster ad was striking. Their showroom “spit”-polished. Rick Steen, a representative of Hydro Pool, was brought in for a hot tub sale advertised as “Too Big to Miss!”

Russ and Doneal Greipl were ready for customers and hoping to sell some hot tubs. On the morning of Wednesday, April 3, their hearts sank. Camrose was still firmly entrenched in winter. (As it turned out, weather got progressively worse all week – Saturday was dreadful outdoors!) However, their four-day sale broke company sales records!

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.
