Council approves concert licence By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has authorized the mayor and general manager of corporate and protective services to grant a licence to Panhandle Productions to host the 20th annual Big Valley Jamboree this summer. Panhandle Productions has agreed to pay the City of Camrose $265,350 for police, fire and public works services, as well as a business licence and a licence fee. "The majority of the concert municipal costs are in relation to policing," said City general manager, corporate and protective services Kim Isaak, in a report to council April 23. The cost of providing municipal services for the 2011 Big Valley Jamboree was $243,184. "Other than some inflationary increases for municipal costs, the other cost change was reflective of wage increases based on the new policing collective agreement and the proposed

CUPE collective agreement," said Isaak. Panhandle Productions has agreed to carry a minimum of $5,000,000 in public liability insurance for Big Valley Jamboree and post a deposit of $5,000 in the event there are any abuses of the City sewer system by waste haulers. The Camrose Concert Bylaw includes provisions covering concerts held indoors with 1,500 or more expected attendees and for events held outdoors with 500 or more expected attendees. A concert plan is required for areas such as water supply, sanitation, food supplies, facilities, first aid, vehicle access, policing and camping, and every licence is subject to conditions regarding security protection, water and sanitation facilities, food concession, garbage, fire protection, first aid, parking, access, camping, hours of operation, communications and public liability insurance. As a public safety issue a condition listed in the concert

licence calls for ambulance service to be arranged by the promoters of Big Valley Jamboree at a comparable level to the 2011 concert.

Day of Mourning

Council proclaimed April 28 as a National Day of Mourning in recognition of workers who have been killed, injured or disabled in the workplace. Twenty City of Camrose staff had injuries in 2011 that required them to take time off work, the majority of which resulted from motor vehicle collisions. As a result, the Occupational Health and Safety program has implemented numerous defensive driving courses, which have been attended by 40 per cent of the employees. Across Canada it is estimated that over 800,000 workplace accidents occur each year, with approximately 400,000 of these accidents resulting in disabling injuries. Statistics show that a Canadian worker gets hurt on the job every nine seconds.

Lions Cavalcade coming By Dan Jensen

The annual Lions Cavalcade will be in Camrose May 25 and 26. "It is here where any club in attendance can present their donations to the Lions Cavalcade for Diabetes Awareness commititee during a Parade for the Green, states a Camrose Swans and Roses press release. "The committee passes the donations on to the Canadian Diabetes Association in support of the Travelling Diabetes Resource Program, also known as the TDRP, and the vans that the Association uses throughout Alberta and the Northwest Territories to increase awareness (about diabetes)." The Lions Cavalcade has been raising funds to support a Diabetes Awareness program run by the Canadian Diabetes Association for the last 25 years. "The Lions Cavalcade came into existence in 1987 when the Lions felt the need to establish a highly visible province-wide fundraising program," explained the release. "The idea was that these funds would support the Canadian Diabetes Association in its efforts towards research and awareness throughout Alberta and the Northwest Territories." In 1991 the Wetaskiwin Lions and Lioness clubs donated a van to the Canadian Diabetes Association. The current Travelling Diabetes Resource Program was adopted after changes were made in the mid 1990s to the Alberta Health Care system. The Lions have raised in excess of $460,000 through the Cavalcade for Diabetes Awareness.


Evraz pipe mill locks out workers By Murray Green

Evraz Camrose Works issued a 72-hour lockout notice to the CAW in an effort to extract pension, retiree benefits and other concessions from the workforce. The company intended to lockout the employees at 9 a.m. on May 5, but asked employees to stop working on May 3. "Mediation between Evraz Camrose and Canadian Auto Workers Local #551 (CAW) began on Wednesday, May 2. Evraz confirms that it issued a 72-hour lockout notice to help facilitate a bargaining resolution," said Camrose Evraz manager Mike Howard. "The CAW issued a 72-hour strike notification and Evraz stands ready to continue good faith bargaining with our primary goal to reach an agreement that will help ensure the job security of Evraz employees. Evraz has the appropriate measures in place to continue operations at its Camrose facility and serve its customers." CAW Local 551 represents a bargaining unit of 105 workers at Evraz Camrose Works in Camrose, including trades persons, machine operators and labourers. Major outstanding bargaining concerns include wages, benefits, pension contributions, and job security clauses. Few economic or language issues have been settled to date, with the company offering no general wage increases over a three-year contract. "It is completely unfathomable that workers in the oil and gas industry working in the hottest economy in North America are being attacked and threatened to give back long fought gains," said CAW national representative Todd Romanow. "The company has begun an attack on these workers and the community, who have supported the plant for over 60 years and have helped make the company incredibly profitable." The CAW contract with Evraz expired on Feb. 1, and negotiations have been ongoing since November 2011. The union has met with the company for

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Evraz Camrose Works union employees were locked out of the mills on Saturday, May 5. Discussions between the two sides broke off after negotiating a settlement on benefits and concessions.

over nine days of negotiations with no success, with the company still intent on extracting major concessions from the workers. "The union membership is seeking parity with its sister plants and reasonable days and hours of work to ensure safety to all of its members," said local union president Larry Luckwell. Evraz located in Camrose, Alberta (previously known as OSM Tubular Camrose) manufactures tubular goods and line pipe for oil and natural gas. The company is headquartered in Chicago, and its manufac-

turing facilities are located in Portland, Oregon; Regina, Saskatchewan; Pueblo, Colorado; Claymont, Delaware; Calgary, Camrose, Red Deer; and Surrey, British Columbia. Evraz North America is the number one producer of large diameter pipe, the second largest producer of steel plate and the largest producer of rail. Evraz operates two pipe mills in Camrose. One is an electricresistance-weld (ERW) mill that manufactures pipe and casing up to 16 inches in diameter. This pipe is used primarily in drilling and transporting of oil and

gas from the wellhead to larger transmission lines. It is also used to distribute natural gas once it arrives in the marketplace. The second mill is a UOE double-submerged, arc-welded (DSAW) mill that produces largediameter pipe used for larger transmissions lines. Both of these mills utilize the highest quality steel plate and coils to produce a broad range of steel pipe required in a broad range of applications. Evraz North America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Evraz Group S.A., one of the largest vertically integrated steel and mining businesses in the world.

Jorge de Paz continues lengthy trial in Guatemala By Murray Green

Although Jorge de Paz has lived in Camrose for about 23 years, he is still fighting for peace, justice and freedom for his birth place. In 1996, Jorge started a trial against the former General Efrain Rios Montt. The case is still ongoing. "My lawyer was scared to go against him at first. The General was then on congress and had immunity. Now that he is off of immunity as of January 14, I can continue my trial. He is on trial for genocide and is on house arrest," said Jorge. "I was told to drop the trial or something will happen to members of my family. My niece received a call threatening her about this." Jorge was born in Guatemala City in 1948. He studied in a number of institutions and his work in support of popular needs started in the mid 1960s when, as a student, he was forced to confront the repressive forces of

Jorge de Paz

the government on a number of occasions. In the 1970s many of his friends were brutally killed because they were fighting for a better future for the country. In 1982, under one of the many military governments in Guatemala's recent history, Jorge had to suffer in part what his friends had endured before. He was kidnapped and tortured by members of the presidential

guard under the orders of General Efrain Rios Montt. After being kidnapped and tortured he was sentenced to a special type of court system called "Tribunales de fuero especial." As of today, Jorge is the only person who still has a record of receiving a sentence from this special type of court. "I'm planning a trip to Guatemala to help my brother and his family. I had a friend on the congress, but he was killed for trying to steal a car. The government fired 19 shots into the car and then said he tried to steal it. No one tries to steal a car with 19 shots from a machine gun in it," said Jorge. His human rights efforts did not stop with his kidnapping. Inside the different jails he organized the inmates in hunger strikes to force the jail's authorities to respect the rights of the prisoners. He was accepted twice as a political refugee in Mexico. The first time in 1985 when, after demanding the government respect the rights of the population,

he was once again harassed by members of the presidential guard and he needed to move to Mexico for some time. The second time was in 1989 when, after many tries to form the Guatemalan Chapter of Amnesty International, his entire family was forced to move to Mexico with him. Jorge continues his struggle today against the abuse of power, discrimination, impunity and social inequality. There have been many organizations that have recognized the sacrifice Jorge has had to endure. "I just want to bring justice to my country. There is still danger. I want to help my brother, sister and the nieces and my nephew." He has been called upon to speak at different universities in Canada such as University of Alberta, Augustana University College, as well as in many secondary and elementary schools in Mexico and Guatemala. Jorge de Paz has stood tall against corruption and abuse

without concern for his own wellbeing and has had to endure many of these fights alone. "I fight for human rights and this has gotten me into trouble. Someone offered me a job as the mayor of a town in Guatemala. That is not what I want. I just want people to be treated right and he has to pay for what he did." He has written two books, The Kidnap and The Torture and Imprisoned in Hell. In these two books, Jorge describes and condemns violations of human rights suffered not only by himself, but also those he has seen committed against others. He urges governments and private citizens alike to unite in the fight against human rights violations. Jorge also started a Walk for Peace in Mexico City in the Basilica of Guadalupe that concluded in the Cathedral of Guatemala City. He also fought against the death penalty. Jorge made his home in Camrose shortly after his escape to Mexico in 1989.

Treat mom to an Ultimate Ladies' Night Out By Dan Jensen

Looking for a nice gift for your mom? The Camrose maternity and children's boutique from Kicks to Kids is making plans for an Ultimate Ladies' Night Out in support of Brigantia Place (Camrose Women's Shelter) Saturday, May 26. The night will begin with a dinner at The Canadian Brewhouse, followed by a showing of the movie What to Expect When You Are Expecting, starring Jennifer Lopez, at Duggan Cinemas. Ladies who attend the movie will receive VIP treatment with champagne (sparkling juice for expectant moms), treats from Malories Cakes & Catering, and a swag bag, as well as the chance to enter their names into a draw for prizes from Cloud 9 Day Spa, Bra Necessities, Evolve Style Council, Twig and Cobblers. "We think this will be a great event for anyone who is expecting, has kids, is thinking about having kids, or just likes chick flights and wants a night out on the town," said Kicks to Kids owner/manager Kristine Smith. "Since the event is following Mother's Day we think it will be a great Mother's Day gift for all those husbands who have no clue what to get their wives." Tickets for the Ladies' Night Out may be purchased from Kicks to Kids.

To mom, with your love Looking for gift ideas for Mom? Here are a few that are sure to make this year the best Mother’s Day ever! With the help of an adult (but not Mom!), little ones can create a very special “coupon booklet.” Each page can contain a gift certificate for things Mom is sure to enjoy: breakfast in bed, a long bubble bath surrounded by uninterrupted silence, a Saturday afternoon of activities without tantrums, a tidy room, homework done well and without complaints ... let your children use their imagination to come up with things that they will be able and proud to do for Mom. Older kids can find a wealth of ideas at a local library or bookstore, such as books on arts and crafts. Finger painting or making candlesticks, jewellery boxes, dried flowers and penholders are a few ways of easily making gifts. Most gifts can be made with affordable materials – many of which you already have at home. And what mother wouldn’t love receiving a diploma attesting that she is indeed the World’s Greatest Mom? If you have a way with words, a poem written in her honour can be a great way to show her just how much you love her and everything she does. Those who haven’t yet mastered the alphabet can always express their feelings with a drawing. Add these to the diploma to make a very special gift that is sure to stay on the wall for years.

“Let us do the cooking on Mother’s Day”

The start of the Mother's Day tradition When Mother’s Day was founded in the early 20th century, it was proposed that we take pen in hand and write a special letter dedicated to mother in honor of her day. Times have changed over the years. Few people write letters anymore, favoring e-mails or e-cards. Perhaps that’s why it’s time to go back to the traditions of yesteryear and write that letter. Composing a note to your mother can be fun and satisfying -- and will most definitely bring a smile to her face.

The University of Alberta's Augustana campus had good representation at the Run for Music in Edmonton April 21. The Miltonator (Milton Schlosser), The Rogue (Roger Admiral) and Ardelle Ries made their way through a 10 km course starting from the Royal Glenora Club after collecting pledges that will be directed towards the Augustana choir's international study and performance tour in Hungary. The Run for Music is a 5 km walk or 5 or 10 km run designed to help choral singers of all ages, conductors of choirs, or anyone devoted to choral music advocate the importance of choral music. The pledges received by participants are split between Edmonton and area choirs and the Alberta Choral Federation, an organization with which Augustana has had a close relationship.


Railway Station produces cookbook By Dan Jensen

You might want to head to the Camrose Railway Station this year to find that perfect Mother's Day gift. The Camrose Railway Station has produced a 25th anniversary cookbook filled with 568 time-tested recipes for salads, main courses, vegetables, cakes and desserts. "We use a lot of the recipes in the book at the station for the different things we serve in the tea room," said Janine Carroll. The 25th anniversary cookbook is basically a reprint – with a few new additions – of an original version published by the station a few years ago. "It's the first time since I joined the station four years ago that it has been reprinted," said Carroll. "I've been told the original version, when it was released, went like hotcakes." The cookbook has a new, modern design, thanks to the volunteer work of Lorrie Tiegs, who did the formatting. The front cover features a colourful photo of the gardens surrounding the railway station. The cookbook has been dedicated to all the young and old who are or want to become acquainted with their pioneering spirit. "If the only thing this collection does is stimulate you to prepare an old standby it has served a purpose," said Cathie Murray, who assisted in the preparation, editing and production. "Some of the recipes are quite modern and others are generations old." All proceeds from the sale of the new cookbook will go towards restoration projects at the railway station. "We have an old original wagon that the baggage would be piled on when it came off the train that needs its wheels to be repaired," said Carroll. "We're going to be taking it down to the Remington Carriage Museum at Cardston, which specializes in redoing old wagon wheels." The Camrose Railway Station will be re-opening its doors for the summer on the Saturday of the May long weekend. "There's a lot of work that is going on in preparation for the opening," said Carroll. "Glenys (Smith, the volunteer curator) has been busy getting the gardens in order, while Bruce (Smith) has been laying new tracks for the train in the Morgan Railway Garden. "We've been cleaning the tracks for years but they eventually got to the point where there were a few dead spots showing up and they had to be replaced." Copies of the cookbook may be reserved by calling the Camrose Railway Station at 780-672-3099.

Mom's the Word on this talented group By Murray Green

In the past, mom's the word meant keeping a low profile on the fact that the Camrose community has a lot of talented actors and actresses in the Camrose Main Street Players theatre group. But, since that cat is out of the bag, the new meaning of Mom's The Word is revealing the smash hit on five continents to a local audience. The play is an award-winning ensemble production written by six Canadian performer-moms who have endured the agonies and ecstasies of parenting. "It is a hysterically funny and deeply touching play: it deals in shocking detail with all the important elements of childbearing: the good, the bad, and the ugly," said producer Cathie Johnson. "Without rose-coloured lens treatment, Mom's the Word is a hilarious, intimate look at motherhood. Touching, vivid tales of giving birth to a premature baby are balanced against comic, ribald stories of diaper soup and sex after children. All six moms have two children, suffer from sleep deprivation, and have some of the most outrageous stories you've ever heard – all of them true. It is group therapy like never before." Local actresses Amanda Hill, Lisa Booth, Colleen Bunyan, Shirley Fairall, Shelby Bianic and Michelle Ratz make up the cast of the show that runs along with the Mother's Day season. Dawn and Jason Marshall are the directors, Marlene Maertens-Poole is the stage manager, Carol Haugen is the assistant stage manager, John Rawson is the light technician and Shawn McKinnon is the set designer.

Skyhawk ready to soar The University of Alberta, Augustana Campus and the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball program announced Cole Aikensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; commitment to the Vikings beginning in the 2012-13 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cole is a very hard-working player that never takes opportunities for granted,â&#x20AC;? said Vikings head coach Dave Drabiuk on the newest Viking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He plays with a poise and level of desire that is well-suited to the ACAC and I believe he will develop into a very dynamic player in the years to come. Cole immediately made a positive impression on coaches and players at our ID Camp this spring, both with his basketball play and who he is as a person.â&#x20AC;? Aikensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father, Randy, is a graduate of the Saskatchewan Technical Institute and his mother, Dana, a Medicine Hat College grad: Cole knew he had options when he chose Augustana. In fact, he could have joined his brother Jesse at the Edmonton Campus of the University of Alberta. But, according to Cole, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Augustana offered a great program for me, and I really like the basketball team and the coaching staff.â&#x20AC;? Coleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studies will be directed towards a degree in Kinesiology and Sport Studies while attending the University of Albertaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Augustana Campus.

NEW Organic Product for 2012

Your family will enjoy tastier, healthier food Next, we used a water application with the plants. We added one scoop of Iron Earth (the bag comes with a one-ounce yellow scoop inside), and we used an empty 500 mL water bottle. We added the full scoop of Iron Earth into the water bottle by using a small funnel. Then we added water and shook it all together. Then we poured the contents into the four basil leaf lettuce plants in the green pots only. Water went into the red pots.

It is commonly known our soil, everywhere, is missing minerals. But now there’s a new organic product that solves this BIG problem, and produces BIGGER results!

What we witnessed in 18 hours was incredible!

LORRAINE’S STORY: If you’re like me, I like to grow things – simple plants and vegetables with little maintenance. My husband is a farmer, so we often debate about how to take care of our indoor plants and vegetable garden. What both my husband and I agree on is an amazing new product called Iron Earth.

“A group of growing experts sought out a raw soil enhancement material that has all the ideal elements for optimal plant growth. Their research led them to review and test a range of samples from various locations and they unanimously selected the product known today as Iron Earth. This team is amazed at the results Iron Earth brings to all vegetable plants, flowers, lawns, trees and more,” stated Iron Earth’s Retail Manager Murray Cheesman. In our backyard, we had plenty of access to manure and compost which we added to our garden regularly. We believe these worked by adding nutrients and ingredients to the soil, but the difference we saw with Iron Earth was truly remarkable! Our first experiment was with basil leaf lettuce. Here’s what we did:

The Basil Leaf Lettuce Experiment: Iron Earth is a highly compressed, natural, organic mineral shale. This rich plant compound will give your soil a concentrated source of naturally occurring nutrients. By adding Iron Earth to your garden soil and planter pots, you’re providing the nutrients necessary for excellent soil conditions and optimal plant growth.

First, we bought eight equally-sized basil leaf lettuce plants from a local greenhouse. We split the plants into two groups of four. We were able to switch the pot colors at the greenhouse, so we had four red pots and four green pots for our plants to help distinguish the plants with the Iron Earth and the plants without.

The photo below shows how Iron Earth helped the green potted plant grow. It shows a side-by-side comparison. It’s good to know a product like Iron Earth exists today. It’s clear to see how lots of minerals can positively impact the growth of a plant. When it comes to my family’s health, I want to them to have access to nutrient-rich foods. I know with Iron Earth in my garden they will get better, tastier, healthier food.

Mom's the word on this talented group Continued from page 21

"Cathie approached my wife Dawn about directing this show as a fundraiser for breast cancer," explained Jason. "I decided to jump on board too because it is a good show, it is for a worthy case and it appeals to my directing sensibilities. We have some very strong actresses, many of which don't have a lot of experience, but they are very eager and talented." Dawn and Jason met at the University of Saskatchewan drama department and they have been teaching and directing shows since graduating. Jason directed shows in B.C. and New Zealand before moving to nearby Wetaskiwin. "I have been involved in all aspects of plays including acting, lighting and directing," said Jason. "My wife directed 30 Reasons not to be in a Play for Cathie last year and was involved as a teacher of the group. We both love community theatre and it is a good resource for the community," said Jason. "The most fun I have ever had, and some of my best work has been with

community theatre because the enthusiasm has been amazing. You get some of the highest quality of acting from people who are not getting paid for it." Actors, set builders and other volunteers make the show possible by working hard at it. "Working hard is important. As a director, it is my job to give the audience a chance to appreciate it," Jason said. "We had auditions in November. Then we started rehearsals in January with six to nine hours a week." Cathie explained that the Marshalls are also teaching people to fill those volunteer positions. "It is a learning process for everyone. It's about teaching and education." Jason admitted they are learning as well. "A lot of the skills we teach them is for every day. We teach communications and how to get your message across to someone else." He said the Bailey Theatre is the best place to put on a show like Mom's The Word. "It is possibly the best equipped theatre I

have been in," said Jason. "I have been in shows from big venues to out in a field. It ranks at the top with beautiful space. I hope the community will appreciate it." Raising children is a hard job and Mom's The Word puts fun back into the process. "There is something everyone can relate to in this play," said Jason. "I guarantee it." Actresses Amanda Hill expands on her character Barbara. "I see her as a firecracker, someone who is the most lively mom of the bunch. She is a nononsense type of woman who doesn't take crap from anyone," explains Amanda. "She demands presence and is fun." The former Augustana student is also having fun in community theatre. "Being on stage gives me a release. It allows me to be someone else," said Amanda. "People will find this hilarious. I know when I was rehearsing this for my parents, I had them in tears. I feel that anyone who has had experience in parenting or just being part of a family or with children in general, will find this

show breathtaking and give a sense of truth and insight of what it means to be a mom. It is one of the most important, but difficult jobs in the world." Amanda enjoys being part of the acting team. "Because this show is so real, we have gotten to know each other as a cast. It is beautiful because we can bring our own stories from our lives and bring it into our character and mould it. There are not so strict guidelines that we can't truly make them our own," said Amanda. "I hope the Camrose community is very supportive of our theatre. If you don't come out, you will be really missing something special." The show begins on May 10 and 11 with shows at 7:30 p.m. On May 12, a matinee show will be held at 1 p.m. and a dinner theatre will start at 6:30 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m. A brunch show will take place on May 13 beginning at 11:30 a.m. with the show at 1:30 p.m. A donation of $2 from each ticket sold will be donated to breast cancer.


Council adopts waste proposal By Dan Jensen

City council has accepted a proposal from Stantec, of Red Deer, for the development of an integrated solid waste management master plan that will establish a strategic direction and planning framework for waste management and diversion in Camrose for the next 25 years. The plan is expected to be presented to council this fall so that its recommendations can be discussed and possibly included in the City's 2013 budget. City of Camrose general manager of Engineering Services, Kris Sarson, and director of engineering services Mark Barrett, found that while the bid by Stantec was higher in cost than the bids submitted by two other companies, it was technically superior. "As the solid waste master plan will be the foundational document on which solid waste policies, practices and initiatives will be based, it is very important not to rank proposals on costs alone but on the expected value of the final product or functional document," explained Barrett, in a presentation to council April 23. Matters the City is expecting Stantec to address in the report are best practices and innovations, sources of funding from the provincial and federal governments, the pros and cons of automated collections for residential programs, waste diversion service level options and support mechanisms, possible improvements to the landfill tipping fee rate structure, and the financial structures for landfill closure and post closure funding. Councillor Max Lindstrand said that while he was surprised at the cost of doing the work, it is urgent that the master plan be done if it wants to do something to address industrial, commercial and institutional waste. Council endorsed a number of recommendations in June, 2010, that put the residential solid waste collection program on course to meet the goal of a fifty per cent reduction from 2009 levels by 2015. In 2011, council accepted in principle a recommendation from Hoffman Consulting under a review of industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste options, one of those recommendations being that a waste master plan be developed to better assist with integrating the various branches of the municipal waste programs. The master plan will be funded from the City's 2013 operational budget and the waste management capital reserve. The City of Camrose will investigate whether there may be any additional funding forthcoming from the Camrose Regional Solid Waste Authority, which manages solid waste disposal utilizing a contract site operator at the landfill. The mandate of the City of Camrose Waste Management Section is to provide "collection and disposal of solid wastes in an environmentally responsible manner and meet the needs of the citizens in a cost effective manner, with emphasis on recycling and reuse where feasible."

"Since they have not worked with the equipment before, I will not only be performing the scans, I will be teaching the doctors and staff how to use the information to help the patients," said Jim. "They are sending me the machine now. I have to test it and make sure it is working properly before I go. It is a portable machine built for the United States army that weighs only eight pounds. It will do anything that a big machine will do." Everyone has to pay their own way. Jim is currently raising $1,300 to pay for his ticket to go to El Salvador. "I am picking up any bottles or cans that are recyclable to go towards my trip. People can call me to pick them up. I have the next two months to raise the money." He leaves July 9 for El Salvador and returns July 21. "I'm retired from St. Mary's Hospital and that is one of the reasons I can go. I don't have to worry about work schedules," said Jim. "I'm qualified to do the work, but not registered. That is not important. I'm going to Winnipeg for two weeks on April 30 for a refresher course." Jim was eager to volunteer for this project. "I still feel that I have a little bit of fuel left in the tank," he joked. "I went to Iqaluit to help northern communities and I enjoyed it and found it very rewarding. I want to volunteer while I still have the ability to do it. I intend on doing something like this for as long as I can. I still have a little to give. Giving to a third world country that can't afford it is very rewarding." The added bonus is travelling around the world and meeting new people. "I've never travelled to a place like this. Going up north is amazing because you learn other ways of living and

how people put a lot of value into their traditional way of living. I found young people in the north very dedicated to the provision of food." He explained how a young couple that came in from Churchill, but was from farther up north, were anxious because they were responsible for providing fish to the elders. "They took that very seriously. What I'm going to experience in El Salvador, I'm not sure. I've already been told not to go to certain places, especially in the evenings." Jim said performing ultra sounds is a good way to get to know people. "You can't get too much more intimate than that," he joked. "To be honest, I'm not sure how young mothers will react to having an ultra sound done on them." Jim wants to enrich the country with medical knowledge. "Often you can spot generic problems. Then they can be sent to the right place to receive the treatment they need. You can leave the mother, nurses and doctors with information to help them. We are only there for two weeks, so I need to give them information that will help at the time of birth. I have to teach the doctors, so they can learn for the future." Jim has to supply the gel and other supplies that are needed to operate the machine because they don't have any of the items. "The United Church will be holding a plant sale in May to raise funds. I am also taking donations through the church." If anyone has bottles to donate, call Jim at 780-608-9696 and he will pick them up.

Fire chief Peter Krich with an emergency preparedness kit. By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose wants you to prepare for the worst. The City will have displays set up at its various facilities this week (City Hall, public works, the fire and police stations, and Camrose Aquatic Centre) showing residents what they can include in a 72-hour emergency preparedness kit. "We want to encourage the public to create kits, something that they can put together to help enhance their situation in the first 72 hours of an emergency," said Camrose fire chief Peter Krich last week. The first 72 hours of an emergency are critical, as emergency responders are busy and don't always have enough time to get to everyone who is in need of assistance. "We're saying that if you can look after yourselves for 72 hours that is great," said Krich. "After that we can start winding down and look at how we can handle the whole situation."

Items that can be included in 72-hour emergency kits include 12-hour green light sticks, a flashlight, poncho, stove, fuel. candles, set of cooking pots, power bar energy food, sewing kits, multi-tool knife, folding shovel, fire starter sticks, two litres of water per person per day, prescription medicine, a change of clothing and basic tool kit. The City will be providing free written material next to, or on the display table, on what to do in the event of a summer storm, and the importance of preparing for an emergency. Visitors will also be able to pick up a handy form on which they can enter household emergency information for quick reference. Krich said it is the mandate of the City to make sure it is prepared for anything and everything that can happen. "The City of Camrose has a plan to deal with all types of emergencies. We are always looking at the risks that are out there."

City issues challenge The Green Action Committee and its chairperson, City councillor Earle Berry, are challenging Camrose residents to continue to reduce their environmental impact and record their acts on the EcoAction Calculator. Throughout the month of June 2010, more than 300 Camrose residents joined forces and entered a one-month-long, online Eco Challenge that asked residents to register online and commit to small actions to reduce their environmental impact. The combined efforts of the citizens of Camrose resulted in massive savings. The calculator estimated that the commitments made by the Camrose participants saved the community over 12 million litres of water, almost 48,000 kilograms of waste, 742 metric tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, over 900,000 kWh of energy and nearly $61,000. “These results speak volumes about how we as a community can have a significant impact on becoming a much greener city and community,” said Berry. “The EcoAction Calculator is still up and running and this is a great opportunity to continue with this incentive as a community. I will undertake the responsibility of compiling the efforts of our community’s participation on a regular basis and report them back to the community.”

Residents are encouraged to register online and continue with these incentives in perpetuity. Some of the actions on the calculator include commitments to reduce idling time, changing to more efficient light bulbs [see photo], lowering temperatures on thermostats, using reusable grocery bags and reducing the amount of time spent in the shower by as little as five minutes. The calculator includes 50 actions over three levels of intensity but you only need to commit to one simple action to be counted. It’s easy to get started! Step 1: Log on to to learn more about the challenge. Step 2: Click on the link to the EcoAction Calculator. Complete your individual profile first, then search for “City of Camrose” on the teams tab – and join the City of Camrose Community Eco Action Challenge team. Step 3: Agree to at least one act and follow through on your commitment to your selected acts. Step 4: Tell your friends, family, co-workers, school and other contacts – help get everyone involved and show that Camrose is a leader in environmentally friendly initiatives!

Re: “Alberta needs a moratorium on fracking” The Camrose Booster, April 3, 2012 Second Thought column by Dittmar Mündel

by Berdie Fowler

Dr. Dittmar Mündel correctly points out that all the approximately 170,000 wells that have been hydraulically fractured in Alberta over the past 60 years have been fracked safely. That same record of safe fracking operations applies to British Columbia, the province with Canada’s largest known shale gas reservoirs. This safe operating record is the result of effective and robust regulations, and sound industry operating practices. Dr. Mündel lists three concerns about natural gas development. Methane migration: The National Energy Board says the approximate recovery rate from horizontal gas wells is about 20 per cent. Gas that is not recovered stays in the reservoir which, in the case of shale gas, is typically 2,000 to 3,000 metres deep. Drinking-water aquifers are usually found at depths less than 300 metres. So thousands of metres of rock separate the producing zone from geological formations containing drinkingwater aquifers. Natural gas has been found in well water for decades as the result of naturally occurring seepage. Water wells in areas rich in natural gas may penetrate shallow geological formations, such as coal seams, where gas exists naturally. In other words, gas found in well water is usually biogenic, or naturally occurring, gas and not linked to oil and gas development. The process of wellbore construction is highly regulated. Industry isolates gas wells from surrounding geological formations and groundwater aquifers through multiple steel casings that are cemented in place. The risk of water well contamination from industry activity is extremely small. Energy required to hydraulically fracture shale rock: Producing natural gas from shale rock using hydraulic fracturing requires more energy than producing natural gas from conventional formations. A lifecycle greenhouse gas emission study that includes Canadian upstream emissions has yet to be released. Natural gas is the cleanest-

Opportune time to set new standard It was retired MLA Ken Kowalski’s assignment last week to familiarize newly-elected MLAs with the Alberta legislature. Approximately half of the recently elected members have not served before. Kowalski did not seek re-election himself on April 23 but he remains Speaker of Alberta’s legislative assembly until a new speaker is chosen, by secret ballot of all 87 MLAs, prior to the next session. He has been Speaker since 1997. Basically, the Speaker’s job is to maintain law and order in legislative debates, making sure that rules of order are followed. The Speaker has the authority to eject legislators who do not abide by the rules. In a television news clip of Kowalski’s briefing of new MLAs, he urged them to do their jobs with diligence and with class. This, I construed, was a direct plea for respectable behavior in the legislative assembly – by all members, not just some, all of the time. I hope his advice will be taken seriously! For too long the public and, indeed, some of the legislators themselves, have been embarrassed by what visitors have observed from the gallery. Instead of visiting student groups seeing a performance to emulate, they often see shouting, finger pointing, jeering, heckling, inattention, and other demonstrations of disrespectful and completely unacceptable misbehavior. Not only students become disillusioned and cynical when they see and hear about that brand of politics, but adults do too, because they know that no genuine debate or progress occurs in such a shameful and disruptive atmosphere. I believe now is an opportune time for members of the Alberta legislature to raise the standard of decorum in its own assembly, and to be a model to emulate by members of Parliament in Canada’s House of Commons where the atmosphere seems especially vitriolic, based on what one sees on televised versions and reads in journalists’ columns. The time for refreshing change in Alberta’s legislature is now because three of the four parties represented have new leaders, and over forty members are just beginning their first terms. Premier Redford and Opposition leader Danielle Smith have already demonstrated ‘class’ in the disposal of a sensitive situation caused by a pre-election twitter question of a Redford supporter. Ms. Smith responded, not with rage but with a calm explanation; Ms. Redford was not defensive but quickly and sincerely apologized to Ms. Smith. The apology was graciously accepted and the subject had a sudden death. Now they, as well as the other two party leaders and all MLAs, have the opportunity to demonstrate similar ‘class’ in legislative debates. It is acknowledged that different parties have divergent opinions that need to be expressed, but it is reasonable to expect that members will debate with maturity, courtesy and mutual respect at all times. We praise what appears to be a growing number of elected politicians who are themselves disgusted by behavior that prompts journalist Michael Den Tandt to write describing Question Period in the House of Commons, Ottawa: “Question Period ... is ill attended, rife with stupidity and foolishness, devoid of intelligence, wit, depth or truth. Why bother? It is a waste of breath.” May Alberta politicians raise the standard in legislature decorum and become a model for other legislative bodies! It’s not a tall order to request; it’s a matter of common courtesy to listen and to rebut with mutual respect and deference to the legislature rules of law and order.

burning fossil fuel, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. It combusts 50 per cent cleaner than coal, according to Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and emits fewer air pollutants than coal when used to generate electricity. Water use in hydraulic fracturing operations: A typical B.C. horizontal gas well with multi-stage fracturing requires 10,000 to 100,000 cubic metres of water. A well is typically fractured only once and will produce for 20 to 30 years. Industry reuses waste water for hydraulic fracturing where possible and increasingly uses alternatives to fresh water, such as water from deep saline aquifers. Industry disposes of waste water by injecting it into deep underground formations, so that it is not introduced to the environment. This practice has been safely used in Canada for many decades and is governed by strict regulations. Lastly, in January CAPP released six operating practices for hydraulic fracturing. These practices are designed to improve water management and protection, and speak to the need to provide greater clarity about our operations to the public. We expect the practices to inform and complement future regulatory requirements. Canadians want energy solutions focused on a lower carbon future. Natural gas plays a vital role in achieving those solutions. David Pryce, Vice-President, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, Calgary Cutting OAS will hurt poor seniors the most

Last month’s federal budget made it official: the government is raising the age for Old Age Security (OAS) from 65 to 67. Any Canadian born after March 31, 1958, must wait up to two years longer before receiving his or her OAS pension. What will these cuts mean for Canada? Let’s consider who depends on OAS. Today, four out of every ten Canadians who receive OAS are living on less than $20,000 per year. Single women are more likely to rely on OAS as their main source of income. Rural communities, with their older populations, are also more likely to be hurt by cuts to OAS. The OAS program includes the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), which is a monthly allowance for low-income seniors. By raising the age for OAS, the government is also raising the age for GIS – a move that will hit Canada’s most vulnerable seniors the hardest. Making Canadians wait another two years before receiving OAS takes away more than $15,000 per year from the very seniors who can least afford it. The government’s message

to these Canadians is clear: You are on your own. You should work longer. You should have saved more. If you are 50 right now, you may have been counting on receiving OAS when you turn 65. Now you must try to find an additional two years of income to live off. Unfortunately, working longer isn’t an option for many baby boomers and future seniors. For workers with physically demanding jobs – such as construction workers, miners, and those who work on their feet all day on a plant floor – by the time they reach the age of 65, their bodies may not allow them to continue working. High local unemployment may keep others from working longer. Cutting the pensions of the most vulnerable is not right in a successful country like Canada. If the government truly believes – against all evidence to the contrary – that OAS must be cut in order to be saved, why didn’t the prime minister say this during the election last year? After all, we’ve known about the baby boom generation for some time. But the Conservative Party did not warn Canadian seniors about their plans to cut OAS. Instead, this is what the party promised in its 2011 election platform: “We will not cut transfer payments to individuals or to the provinces for essential things like healthcare, education and pensions.” OAS is a transfer payment to individuals for pensions. For our most vulnerable seniors, it is their only source of income. According to recent public opinion polls, Canadians believe that income inequality – the growing gap between rich and poor – is the most important issue facing the country. By cutting OAS, the government is doing something about income inequality. It is making it worse. Scott Brison, MP Finance Critic for the Liberal Party of Canada Giant guitar?

How about a giant replica of a guitar as a tourist attraction for Camrose? It would reflect our Big Valley Jamboree and most of the music on CFCW, plus the Opry, and classical guitar music. Margaret Myers, Camrose Happy Mother's Day

Sequels are rarely a good idea, so last year when I wrote a Mother’s Day letter to the editor for my mom, Maryann Pereira, I did not think I would be doing it again this year. It was a wonderful feeling to watch my mom open her gift on Mother’s Day, a framed newspaper clipping of her article. Continued on page 31



Camrose District 4-H Beef Clubs

Letters Continued from page 30

At first she thought it was a joke – I guess that’s what I get for being a prankster all my life! After a lot of, “No, seriously mom – happy mother’s day, I wrote this for you,” Mama Pereira finally got the point. My mom is one of the most important people in my life; she has influenced and instilled such great qualities over the years to my brother, sister and myself. This year, although I would love to surprise my mom again and write something about her, my life has changed a bit. I am getting married! Now, I am trying to make sure this letter does not come off in a “Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City” think-out loudas-I-type-kind of tone. Plan and simple, my life is about to take a new and exciting turn, and now I will have two moms to celebrate this Mother’s Day. The more moms the better, double the guidance, double the food take-home packages, double the fun … that sounds like a Spearmint Gum commercial. I still work at World Vision and love it so, this year, in addition to writing another letter to the editor, I decided that a great way to support Mayann Pereira and my “new mom, Vijay Patel” is to support an expectant mom living in poverty through the World Vision Gift Catalogue. Or even sponsor a child in their names. The way I see it, without my mom and my dreamy fiancée’s mom, we would not be saying our “I Do’s” later this summer. So the least we can do is give the gift in our moms’ names to help two expecting mom’s have the same opportunity to be great mothers to their kid(s). Maybe one day the two kids will meet and get married … okay, maybe that’s a “Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City” thought. Happy Mother’s Day’s to all the Maryann Pereira’s and Vijay Patel’s in the world. It does not matter how old we are, married or single, you’re not just our mom’s, you’re our whole world.

Former Kodiak to play goal for SAIT By Murray Green

Former Camrose Kodiaks' goalie Brayden Hopfe will be pursuing his education and furthering his hockey career with the SAIT Trojans in Calgary next fall. Brayden was a key component to the Kodiaks' success over the past two years. He finished this past season with a save percentage of .922 and a goals against average of 2.29. "Brayden led the young Kodiaks' squad this year both on and off the ice and was a great role model for the other players," said Kodiaks' general manager and coach Boris Rybalka. "The entire Kodiaks' organization would like to congratulate Brayden and his family on this accomplishment." He joins teammate Landon Kadatz with the SAIT Trojans.

Litke reaches four more million steps around Hawaii

By Murray Green

Harvey Litke enjoyed travelling the Hawaiian Islands so much he wanted to do it twice. While most people struggled to circle the islands in 90 days, Harvey led the participants with 4,362,700 steps and 3,305 kilometres. More than 415 participants joined the Camrose Primary Care Network's 90-day Holoholo Virtual Trek that motivated local residents to walk, run, swim, bike, dance and get active. The virtual trek was created to provide a fun way for people to work towards a healthier way of life. The Hawaii trek, which began on February 1st, amassed over 170 million steps from groups and individuals. People had the opportunity to virtually watch as they travelled to places like Honolulu, Lanai, Makena and Puako. Along the way everyone increased their physical and mental well-being and valuable health tips during the journey. PCN partnered with the Augustana Fitness Centre and providing the grand prize of a one-year membership to the individual who logged the most steps. "Harvey is an inspiration to us all," said PCN's Colleen Lind-

holm. "There were also teams which participated – working together as a group to make their way around the islands – motivating each other each step of the way." The group Shift Happens won this spring. Members include Alyssa Clarkson, Bob Whitrow, Tracy Cross, Cheryl Clarkson, Rhonda Erickson, Jessica Suzanski, Jennifer Gibson, Wendy Blaeser and Jalene Johnsen. “This was a great campaign for our community,” said PCN family physician Dr. Diana Peters. “I am really impressed with the numbers of patients that have enjoyed the experience.” 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 able to continue using the tool for their own personal fitness journey until the 2013 Virtual Trek. "While the official PCN trek is complete, we encourage everyone to use it as their own personal fitness tool. Even if you didn’t join the official trek it’s not too late to join," said Colleen. "See how many times you can make it

around the islands over the next year." Holoholo participant Lynn Jenkinson is happy the trek tool will continue to be made available. “That's great news because

I don't walk enough to make it around the islands and now I know I can finish my way around the islands,” Lynn said. “Thank you for letting the slow turtles in the race finish the trek.” She

Sparling wins school Holoholo virtual trek challenge By Murray Green

Murray Green, Camrose Booster PCN executive director Stacey Strilchuk, from left to right, PCN communications lead Colleen Lindholm, Sparling School principal Rick Tews and Champ project coordinator Christine Badry celebrate the school's win with $2,000 as a class participates in fitness classes.

Everyone got involved. About 147 Sparling School students along with 26 staff members became active, fit and had fun with the Camrose Primary Care Network Holoholo School Virtual Trek. In February, PCN partnered with the Champ program to develop a strategy to get the virtual trek program into the schools to raise awareness of not only the importance of keeping active, but also how fitness can be fun and easily incorporated into daily life. Five schools involved in the trek were Sifton, Sparling, Charlie Killam, Jack Stuart and Chester Ronning. Sparling won the healthy and active living initiative grant of $2,000. The funds will be used to further promote health and wellness activities in the school. “The Virtual Trek provided the students at Sparling School with the opportunity to increase physical activity and to promote healthy lifestyles," said Cherie Corcoran from the Champ program. “In partnership with the Champ program, students and staff were given the chance to participate in activities such as Zumba and classroom fitness breaks. Following the success of the Virtual Trek, Sparling School is looking forward to continuing the focus on physical and emo-

tional health by providing Yoga Submarine to students and staff,” added Cherie. Yoga Submarine is facilitated by Swan City Yoga out of Camrose. This program encourages body-mind awareness and shares with children ways to culture their own physical and emotional wellness. This program is 100 per cent inclusive of all physical abilities and allows every child to experience success. Yoga will come to Sparling for one full day a week for four weeks. The yoga instructors will work with every class weekly, as well as provide small group sessions for students who would benefit from more individual attention. “I am so pleased the Camrose PCN can model the way for active lifestyles and provide children with opportunities for increased physical activity,” said Stacey Strilchuk, executive director of the Camrose PCN. “We know physical activity produces overall physical, psychological and social benefits but it’s important to remember physical activity should be fun too.” The PCN will be working with the Champ program to implement another exciting virtual trek in early 2013.

Sorenson demonstrates mouth painting to students By Murray Green

Michael Sorenson of Viking showed Chester Ronning School students how he paints pictures for greeting cards by using his mouth on May 2.

Michael Sorenson has had a passion for drawing since he was 10 years old. The Viking area resident hasn't let Cerebral Palsy keep him from creating masterpieces to share with others. Michael demonstrated his art of drawing and painting for his uncle Len Sorenson's Grade 2 class at Chester Ronning School on May 2. Michael painted a picture of a butterfly using a headpointer as a drawing tool. He also uses a computer to communicate with other people.

It takes Michael between eight and 12 hours to complete a painting. The pictures are then colour copied and made into limited edition prints and sold as greeting cards. Michael has been painting to make greeting cards for about three years. Currently, he has about 24 paintings in his collection. He has several Christmas cards that are very popular. To purchase cards, or for more information, contact Michael at He can also be reached by phone at 780-336-2580 or 780-688-2293.

Chevy Equinox A new world of possibilities

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet By Dan Jensen

The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC in Camrose opens up a whole new world of possibilities. "It is everything the compact crossover was meant to be – with the accolades to back it," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. "The Equinox earned the coveted Consumers' Digest Best Buy award and Ward's named the standard 2.4 ECOTEC four-cylinder one of their ten best engines." Exterior design The Equinox draws its exterior design inspiration from the Chevrolet Malibu sedan and Traverse crossover. The look is bold, the lines are sharp and crisp, and the stance is assured. The design features Chevy's signature global face – the two-tier grille and prominent gold Bowtie insignia. Strong fender shapes, a distinctive premium roofline, wraparound headlamps and dual round taillamps are additional elements that define Equinox as a true Chevrolet. Rocker panels are integrated into the doors to make it easier to get in and out of the vehicle. They narrow the area over which a passenger must step, offering protection for paint legs that could brush against dirty rockers. A close inspection reveals exceptionally tight gaps between the body panels – the product of one-piece body stampings. It demonstrates the obsessive approach to quality that affects every aspect of the manufacturing process. The available power rear liftgate can be opened fully or it can be programmed to stop at a specific height to prevent it from hitting the ceiling of a garage. Off the line Equinox gets you off the line with authority thanks to the standard 182 horsepower 2.4 litre ECOTEC four-cylinder engine. Combined with a version of the six-speed automatic transmission that includes an eco button, it allows you to drive in the most fuel efficient mode possible for city driving, producing a city rating of just 9.2 litres per 100 km. On the highway, the combi-

nation produces a 6.1 litres per 100 km rating, resulting in a highway driving range of 1,100 km. Even more assertive off the mark is the available 264 horsepower 3.0 litre V6. Both the 2.4 litre four-cylinder and the 3.0 litre V6 incorporate the latest engine technologies, such as Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing to optimize power output. Driver control is equally commanding thanks to standard features like StabiliTrak – in addition to a technologically advanced All-Wheel-Drive system on AWD models. It meets the challenges of driving in a wide range of conditions encountered on Canadian roads. Driver's environment When you take the seat inside Equinox, many things become apparent. The first is how the design supports your enthusiasm for driving, with its sporty dual cockpit configuration. You can use the standard power driver's height and lumbar adjusters to find your optimal driving position. Settle in and the next impression is one of a high level of refinement. You can literally see Equinox's stylish luxury in something as simple as the blue ambient lighting, which not only sets a rich

tone for the interior, it also makes it easier to see inside in low-light conditions. Automatic climate control on the LT and LTZ models enables you to simply select a desired temperature that the system maintains continuously. The interior is remarkably quiet thanks to features like the acoustic laminated glass, in addition to the triple door seals and numerous sound dampening measures. The available Rear Seat Entertainment System includes dual 203 mm flip-up screens mounted on the front seatbacks. These screens can display multiple inputs, such as DVD movies and video games, and are adjustable for comfortable viewing. The standard Multi-Flex rear seat can slide fore and aft up to 200 mm to increase legroom, contributing to rear-seat passenger comfort. Equinox features 10 separate storage areas, including a deep front centre console that's large enough to store a laptop, and compartments behind the rear-seat doors. The available cargo management package adds a cargo area security shade, cargo convenience net and roof rack crossbars. Safety Available ultrasonic rear parking assist and the rearview camera system together help make you aware of objects behind you whenever you are in reverse. Equinox is also equipped with enhanced driver control technology, including standard features like traction control, StabiliTrak with trailer sway control and rollover mitigation. Occupant protection is bolstered by six standard air bags and the use of high-strength steel in the safety cage construction that surrounds the passenger compartment. The safety cage construction, in conjunction with the side door beams, helps prevent intrusions into the passenger compartment during a collision. And there's the added reassurance of OnStar's automatic crash response. You can see the new Chevrolet Equinox by visiting McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 3850-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Wolverines receive Shock treatment By Murray Green

The Sherwood Park Wolverines know what it is like to be "shocked." The Battle River Shock blanked the Wolverines 65-0 in the Capital District Midget Football League on April 28 to remain unbeaten at 3-0. Jacob Butcher scored three touchdowns, Jason Rivot added two, Joel Bishop, Justin

Fleischhacker, Blake Draper and Brady Podloski each recorded one touchdown. A field goal rounded out the scoring to 65. Pre-emptive defensive play created Shock’s opportunities for interceptions and turnovers. The defensive line kept pressure on the Wolverines as they struggled to tally first downs. The linebackers were itching to make tackles and they didn’t

let off the pressure. Excellent play by the Shock’s defensive squad kept the Wolverines off the scoreboard. The Camrose players on the Shock include Jason Rivot, Bret Tetz, Corson Clarkson, Skylar Rambeau, Michael Ioanidis, Mark Streberg, Dilshant Garcha, Aaron Taves and Cooper Snider from Viking.

Rotary makes grant for youth leadership canoe adventure By Dan Jensen

Fifteen students from Charlie Killam School and Camrose Composite High School will be able to paddle the North Saskatchewan River by day and set up camp along the river's edge at night May 19 to 25. It's all part of the Youth Leadership Canoe Trip, a program offered by the Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta. "This program provides youth with an outdoor experience that will enhance their self confidence, help them cope with stressful situations, and provide a positive experience," said Augustana associate professor physical education Morten Asfeldt. The program encourages healthy risk-taking and promotes the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of life. The general expectation is that students have a desire for fun, demonstrate a desire to learn and maintain a positive attitude. Augustana provides river gear and all the necessary equipment and supplies for the trip, while CCHS provides accompanying teachers. The students will also be joined by a Camrose police officer assigned to the School Resource Officer/DARE program. The trip will start at the Nordegg bridge and end at Rocky Mountain House. Charlie Killam teacher Paul Lange said the trip is for students who are the most guarded or closed off to authority. "It's a fantastic experience for them. It takes the kids out of the school context into the outdoors and it changes their mode of operations. They become more open and honest. and more approachable.

Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre in Camrose has been named 2011 recipient of the Walter J. Hachborn Store of the The Year award for retailing excellence, high standards in retailing, merchandising and community relations. The award was presented by Home Hardware Stores Limited's president and CE Paul Strauss at the company's annual spring market. Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre owner Rob Hauser accepted the award on behalf of a grateful staff. "It is a testament to the hard work of everyone at this store, as well as to the pride we take in offering superior service, quality products and expert advice to our customer base of do-it-yourselfers, home renovators, contractors and local customers," said Hauser. Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre carries a variety of carefully selected products to aid in home renovation, repair and maintenance costs.

Staffed by the store's paint experts, the department also

"Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre embodies everything the award stands for and is a tremendous representative of the Home brand." Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre was named Franchise of the Year by the Camrose Chamber of Commerce in 2009. In 2011, it was one of 20 Home Hardware stores across Canada to participate in Maple Leaf Day by conducting a tree planting.

Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre has been operating from its present location on 48 Avenue and 68 Street since 2006.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Risky Ribs is another success By Alex Oliver

By 8 a.m. Thursday, April 19, 16 Camrose United Church men met in the Camrose United Church kitchen and started cooking ribs, baking beans, preparing salads and desserts, and setting tables. By 5:30 p.m. 41 more men assembled to get their job positions in order; and Ken Cox had his ice sculpture of ducks on a pond in place. At 6:30 p.m. Alex Oliver, Emcee, welcomed the sell-out crowd. At 6:35 p.m. Jerry Wallace, Darryl Dewalt and Davis Dewalt combined music and words to bless the meal. And then, Camrose United Church’s sixth annual Risky Ribs entertainment/fund-raiser event was underway in the CE Hall. “This is bigger than our church alone,” Leon Lohner, chair of the organizing committee, commented, “We reach out to the community and it’s become a community event. There is a large cross-section of the public in the audience; and there are nonmembers who volunteer. Part of its popularity is evidenced by the fact that the tickets are sold out two months in advance.” Entertainment started at 8 p.m. with Darryl and Davis Dewalt contributing three musical numbers – on piano, South American Sunset by Andrew A. Gordon; on violin, Gavotte in D Major by JS Bach); and voice, Es war einmal ein König by Beethoven. The German title is also known in English as The Song of the Flea. The live auction items continued to provide more entertainment. Church members donated a record 20 items for the auction. Jack Kamphorst’s BMW bike ride brought in $250. Other popular items included Bonnie Oliver’s cashmere pashmina from Jerusalem which went for $225. Michael Mucz’s newly published book Baba’s Kitchen Medicines sold for $125 as did Irma Noden’s two home-made apple pies. The two top items were Norma Ruhl’s watercolour of Mt. Hardisty and the Athabasca River painted on location in Jasper Park which went for $350; and Verny Cox’s ever popular cinnamon buns sold for a record $450. Jim Holmberg on alto sax, Morley Riske on tenor and baritone sax, and Orlene Wigglesworth on keyboard provided toetapping dance music. The crowd got into the music so much that several people danced wherever they could find space. Finally, The Mad Hatters jug band which consists of Leon Lohner, Dave Steblyk, Jack Kamphorst, Margaret Wallace, Ron Stables, Bob Lindsey, Buffy da Silva, and Alex Oliver led the crowd in a sing-a-long of old-time favourites which included a new number, A Place in the Choir. “I really enjoyed the evening. There is so much work that goes into it; and the dance music, the food, the sing-along and just having the opportunity to be with friends is a happy experience,” observed Lois Sperry, long-time member of Camrose United Church, “And, I was able to get some ideas for donations for nextyear’s auction.”

CCHS principal Ofrim retiring next month By Murray Green

This week will be Mr. Jim Ofrim's last graduation ceremonies as principal of the Camrose Composite High School. During the last five years Mr. Ofrim has been the greeter with the widest smile welcoming students to CCHS every morning; he has been the biggest supporter of the Trojans sports teams; and he has had the most stories to share during lunch hour in the commons area of the school. After 33 years of teaching, guiding and leading students, Mr. Ofrim will be retiring at the end of June. Mr. Ofrim didn't begin his teaching journey at the high school. "I started in 1979 at Charlie Killam School and was there for a couple of years. From there, I went to the Cooperative Experience Centre, which was an outreach program for junior high students. Darcy Arial and I ran that program together and I was there for seven years," said Mr. Ofrim. "We moved around a bit. We were above the Feed Mill restaurant, across from the courthouse at the Cottage School and we were above the Windsor Hotel for a year or two, and that was very interesting. Then in 1987, the outreach program was moved to the high school and it is now called the Knowledge and Employability Program. We were the first ones to work with that program and I was the department head for a lot of time prior to becoming vice-principal here." He served as the vice-principal for four years before moving into the principal's chair when Max Lindstrand retired. "I feel blessed to have been able to work here. I honestly believe this is one of the best high schools in Alberta. We have one of the nicest facilities; we have a creative and talented staff; and the students in Camrose are good. The opportunities students can experience at the high school are incredible."

CCHS principal Jim Ofrim speaks to graduating students.

Just this year alone, CCHS has excelled with gold medals at Skills Canada, the Science Olympics and has hosted and won provincials in basketball. The music program is off to Banff for a festival and they still have track and field. "I'm going with our FACT students to Nordegg for a canoeing trip and when we get back we have graduation. The machine starts rolling in September and doesn't stop until the end of June," said Mr. Ofrim. "There are a lot of opportunities and challenges and it allows me to step outside of my box. The other thing great about working

here is the culture that has been put in place. With the Wall of Fame that has been established, we are able to celebrate and honour people. It brings our retired teachers back into the building to celebrate. Next year it will 50 years for the school." Mr. Ofrim said he was fortunate to inherit a position that was left in good shape. "I was lucky to have Max Lindstrand, Alex Oliver and Leon Lohner before me and to be able to follow them. I've done some tweaking and have expanded on what they have done. With time, things change. When I took over cell

phones were not a big issue. We have had to evolve with technology. To me, what happens in the classroom is still the most important thing. The whole crux comes from what happens in that classroom and again, we are so fortunate to have such a great staff here. I'm just amazed what goes on in the classroom and it is exciting." Mr. Ofrim said CCHS has great students because they have good parents and the community has embraced the high school. "The community and business leaders support the school in various events and it makes our job easier." As the school year winds down, Mr. Ofrim is feeling nostalgic about the whole process and going full circle. "I went to school here for Grades 10 and 11. I would never have thought that I would be a teacher or principal at CCHS when I went here. When I came here as a teacher in 1987, I was intimidated because I was working with teachers who taught me. It was an interesting adjustment." Mr. Ofrim hopes the next leaders of CCHS continue to honour the tradition of the school. "Teachers are professionals and do a good job. I don't micromanage. We have talented people here and I let them do their thing. I like the people I work with and the students are great. The students re-energize me." To Mr. Ofrim, every student matters. "He is always there to greet you in the morning and he becomes part of your life. He does so much for the students and school and doesn't take credit for anything. He is very modest. I'm riding in the MS Bike Tour and I asked him to join us and he agreed, even though it is outside of the school activities. He is just that kind of a person," said Grade 12 student Missy Tollefson. "Everyone respects him. For him to be disappointed would be

like someone else being totally angry. He is just so calm." Emily Kerr added, "To disappoint him would be so devastating. He has so much respect from other teachers and the students. You can't say anything bad about him. He helps everyone and is so humble and modest about it." Mr. Ofrim is just as at home talking to a first-year shop student as he is with a Grade 12 honour student. "He always goes the extra mile for everyone. He has gone biking, running and swimming with us and he has written scholarship essays for me. There is nothing he wouldn't do for anyone," said Kirsten Gibson. "He always has time for you. He doesn't do it for recognition; he truly cares about everyone." The CCHS principal puts the school and students first. "He does a lot of behind the scenes work that not everyone understands or sees. I'm glad we are graduating in his last year because it would be hard to come back without him as the principal," said Missy. "He builds relationships with the staff and students. He is too modest to take recognition for all of the work he does." The Grade 12 students agreed that Mr. Ofrim is far too modest. "The school is run like a machine and he is the heart of it. He is the motor that keeps everything running smoothly," said Kirsten. "The joke is that he can't take us anymore and is retiring. The other one is that, he can't bear to be without us and is coming with us. But, we were very fortunate to have him here for all three years. The staff and students are going to miss him." He plans to stay involved with the CCHS Wall of Fame to help honour those who helped him along the way

Concert tribute to PJ Bailey almost sold out The concert tribute to PJ Bailey entitled, The Melody Lingers On, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 18, at The Bailey Theatre, is close to being sold out! Concert organizer and mother of PJ, Valerie Bailey, is very grateful for all the support the community has given this event, as all ticket proceeds will be directed to the PJ Bailey Fund with the Battle River Community Foundation. The PJ Bailey Fund will generate scholarships and funding in the fine arts and mechanics in the Camrose area for years to come. "An endowment in PJ's name that will benefit local students who want to pursue one of his two passions in life is a fitting way to have his legacy live on," explains Val. "Since PJ was so well known for his altruistic nature, always finding ways to help others, this is the best way the family could think of to honour that." At the encouragement of many friends, the Bailey family decided to use a concert tribute as a way of raising the necessary funds to establish the PJ Bailey Fund. "PJ was known to be a very

charismatic performer, whether he was singing, playing trumpet or piano, dancing, or acting, so a concert is a very appropriate way to celebrate his life," said Val. It's particularly apt that the concert will be held at The Bailey Theatre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a restoration project supported by the Bailey family for several reasons, one of which is that Stan Bailey (second owner of the theatre, and the one to bestow its current name) was a great great uncle of PJ's. PJ was born and raised in Camrose, attending Charlie Killam School for junior high and playing trumpet in his dad's music program, then moving on to play trumpet and sing in the C.C.H.S. music program under the direction of a close friend of the family, Tom Spila. He went on to study jazz trumpet and contemporary music at Grant Mac-Ewan University his first year out of high school, pleased to have been selected for the Showcase Band, as well as Jazz Band 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the premiere auditioned jazz ensemble for both Grant MacEwan and the University of Alberta. It's fondly remembered among many that PJ was car-

rying on a trumpet tradition in the Bailey family, as both PJ's father, Bob, and grandfather, Don, were trumpet players and played frequently in the area. In the last few years PJ continued another Bailey tradition, that of playing "Last Post" and "Reveille" at the community Remembrance Day ceremonies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a tradition that started with his grandfather and step-grandfather (Stu Bailey), and was continued by both Bob and PJ. PJ's performance abilities didn't stop at trumpet, however. He also graced the dance stage with members of the Camrose Academy of Dance, winning many solo and duet awards at competitions. He joined the Churchmice Players as Winthrop in The Music Man at the age of nine, and was selected for the casts of two university drama productions at Augustana Campus. He studied piano until he finished his Grade 7 RCM, before dropping that to focus on his trumpet and singing lessons. It's not surprising that this young performer won the multi-talent Award of the Camrose & District Music Festival no less than four times since he was 12 years old.

Though PJ was gifted athletically and was very active in sports (hockey especially) throughout elementary and junior high, when the inevitable time conflicts required it, the consummate artist made a choice for the arts. Nevertheless, he was proud of the fact that he finished near the top in the minitriathlons held each spring in the fitness and cross-training course at C.C.H.S. His mechanical prowess, a mystery to his parents, was something PJ explored at C.C.H.S. through mechanics courses taught by Kevin Nagy. It was his love for mechanics that drove PJ to pursue it as his career choice after his first year at Grant MacEwan, with an end to owning his own business some day, when his life was brought to an abrupt halt. Performers at the concert reflect the wonderful musical and dramatic influences in PJ's life as they are his teachers and other musicians with whom he enjoyed performing. They include the River City Big Band, performing (among other selections) Song for PJ (written by one of his professors at Grant MacEwan); well-

known professional musicians Joel Gray (his trumpet teacher) and Ray Baril (saxophonist and one of PJ's ensemble directors), Brittany and Halley Bailey (PJ's sisters), Simply Brass (a quintet that includes his father, Bob), Chorazz! (an ensemble PJ sang with, led by Tom Spila), Inna Luzanac (his piano teacher), Kathleen Corcoran (singer and friend of the family), Paul "Sparky" Johnson (PJ's director in a drama production), Dave McDougall (an acting colleague and friend of the family), Blue Thistle (with Tova Olson, who accompanied PJ), and the senior lyrical group from Camrose Academy of Dance with a tribute dance number choreographed by Lisa Rootsaert, PJ's dance teacher. This is a "must see" event with great jazz and pop music, as well as some surprises. "It would mean so much to us to sell out this concert and have as many of ours and PJ's friends, family, teaching and work colleagues there as possible," commented Val. With so few tickets left, you'll want to get your tickets now!

How would you want to be cared for in the last days of your life? How would you wish a loved one to be cared for? What support would you need? What options do you have available? The Hospice Society of Camrose and District is hoping to open discussion on those and other important questions when it celebrates National Hospice Palliative Care Week May 6 to 12. The Hospice Society of Camrose and District is committed to providing a home-like, hospice setting, compassionate care of the dying, as well as support for their loved ones. According to a brochure being distributed to Camrose businesses this week, it wants "to make available compassionate care so people can die in peace, comfort and dignity, with support for them and for those who care about them. "The focus is to enhance end-of-life care for all who are facing this difficult time." The Hospice Society of Camrose and District's long-term goal is to establish a free-standing hospice 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. The Society has commissioned a needs assessment, and is currently awaiting the release of a final report that will show ways it can proceed to improve end-of-life care in the region, as well as determine whether the Camrose and Wetaskiwin area can support a hospice. Hospice Society board member Treva Olson said there are still many in the community who are not aware of what a hospice is and that they have more choices as to where they want to be at the end of their lives. "We feel it is important to let people know there is another choice and we hope to be able to offer that in a physical way in this community." The idea of a hospice received good response at a needs assessment open house attended by approximately 30 people. "There was not one who was in opposition to the hospice," said Olson. "They shared their stories of different experiences and how the support of something like a hospice or that the kind of care that hospices provide would be very beneficial." Hospice Society board member Beverly Drever clarified that while a new building would be nice to have, it isn't an end-all be-all. "We are seeing if that works but there is so much more we hope to bring to the community," she said. "We are working with The Bethany Group and meeting with the Primary Care Network and other key players to see what it is that our community needs." The Hospice Society of Camrose and District has booked Rosehaven Care Centre Thursday, May 17, for 2 and 7 p.m. screenings of Consider the Conversation, a documentary about living life to its fullest right up to the very end. The hope is that the film will open the floodgates of thought and conversation of the most difficult and often taboo subject. "I think it is a film that everybody should see," said Drever, who first heard about the film when it was being shown by the hospice society on Saltspring Island. "I think it is a fabulous way for us to be of service to the community and raise awareness of us being here." James Roberts, M.D., medical director, Mayo Clinic Health System - Home Health & Hospice, said the film helps to illustrate many areas of improvement in the health care system. "I would encourage everyone to watch this important film, including physicians, health care workers, patients and families. This film will help us to be better physicians, better nurses, better patients and better people."
