Ground broken for new Bawlf School By Dan Jensen

Minister of Education Jeff Johnson, students and representatives from the Battle River School Division (BRSD) broke ground for the new Bawlf School May 30. Minister Johnson said while it is important to celebrate school groundbreakings, it is not just about infrastructure. "Our actions today by turning this sod is a symbolic action, and it is not just about the promise that a new building holds. It is about the promise that our children hold, and the potential in the province and the fact that we believe in our province and are going to keep investing in it, and we are going to keep investing in our children. "You have incredible teachers, you have great communities, and we are going to be able to provide incredible programming here. It is not the walls, it is not the roof, it is what is inside that is important." Minister Johnson said Alberta Premier Redford is committed to building rural communities. "One of the things that has happened so much in recent years is, because of the growth in the larger centres, many of the new buildings and new schools have gone into areas like the Fort McMurrays and the Grande Prairies and the Calgarys that are exploding, but we can't forget about rural Alberta. "We are going to keep investing in rural Alberta and keep building Alberta." Johnson said the provincial government is currently in the process of announcing another 50 new schools and 70 modernizations. "That is direction from the premier that we are going to continue building this province and providing infrastructure, because so many more kids are moving to the province and being born in the province." The provincial government announced in 2011 it was providing funding for the replacement of the Bawlf School after BRSD asked for assistance in upgrading the current build-

Assisting students with the groundbreaking for the new Bawlf School May 30 were Shiraz Jiwani, president of Aman Building Corporation, Battle River School Division trustee Kendall Severson, Alberta Education Minister Jeff Johnson, Bawlf School principal Diana White, and BRSD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Larry Payne.

ing's mechanical and electrical systems. The new school will be designed for K to 12 programming with a capacity, when it opens in September, 2014, of 400 students. The core of the school is to be a permanent structure with just over 3,500 square metres of space that will house a gym, library, office, washrooms, storage, as well as a number of classrooms. The gym will be 595 square metres, almost 200 square metres larger than the current one. A mechanical curtain down the centre will provide the flexibility of dividing the space for multipurpose use. Bawlf students had the opportunity to meet with Darren Radbourne, from ONPA Architects, to provide input on the topic of Design for new schools. The Grades 4, 5, 6 forum focused on 21st century libraries and how space might be created to encourage reading and learning in the age of technology. Volunteers from junior and senior high school

broadened this conversation in their session by considering additional elements such as student common areas, outdoor learning spaces, career and technology studies (CTS) labs, furniture design and the gym. After brainstorming ideas and providing recommendations, each student was then given an opportunity to become an architect for an hour and do some hands on design work. BRSD trustee Kendall Severson said it has been tremendous to be part of the school planning process and hear the ideas and suggestions the students themselves had to contribute towards the design. "As a board member, as a community member and as a dad I am very pleased that Bawlf will be home to an accessible state of the art school that is designed with student needs in mind." Severson acknowledged Alberta Education and Battle River-Wainwright MLA Doug Griffiths for their role in making the new school a reality.

Bawlf School Grade 10 student Seanna Uglem, who will be a member of the new school's first graduating class, said the new school will be offering many things that many students have not before had the chance to experience. "There are many things that students are looking forward to. At the top of the list is the new gym. It is projected to be almost double the size of our current gym. This gives us the ability to host our own tournaments, like provincials, with multiple courts in volleyball or badminton and tons of extra seating area. Next, students are excited for the commons area. This will provide students with an place to hang out at lunch or breaks like the bigger schools. Many students are also looking forward to bigger lockers into which you can actually fit a backpack." Uglem said the food lab will give students more options for courses, other than just food and art.

Uglem said something to which everyone is looking forward in the new school is warmth in the winter and coolness in the spring and summer months. "Many of us are used to the severe change in the temperature of our school throughout these times. It can actually be colder inside the school than outside, even in the minus thirty degree winters." Uglem said the school will bring students closer to the 21st century learning experience for which the school division has been striving. "I am very excited for the modern look this school will bring to the community. It will make this school a more appealing choice when families are choosing a school. All in all, students of Bawlf School cannot wait for the fall of 2014 when we can finally walk in the doors." The construction contract for Bawlf School has been awarded to Aman Builders.

Minister Johnson says education was protected By Dan Jensen

Education minister and former Camrose resident Jeff Johnson.

Alberta Education Minister Jeff Johnson commended Premier Redford at the Bawlf School groundbreaking May 30 for protecting education in the March provincial budget. "One of the things you will see if you look at the budget," said Johnson, "is that education really was protected compared to a lot of the other ministries." Johnson said although it doesn't look like it, education got a slight increase. "It is only because of our growth and the growth pressures on the system that the increase doesn't feel like enough, but it still was a slight increase, rather than a substantive cut."

Johnson said the government has a small contingency fund to cover the small deficit it is running on the operational side, and will be financing out some of the capital projects, like the Bawlf School, over the life of those projects. "We have a number of P3 (private public partnership) schools, we have a number of P3 projects that are on the go, that are being built now, like the ring roads around Edmonton and Calgary. It is a much wiser way to use the money that we have, or use of our finances, especially when we have money in the bank, in the Heritage Trust Fund making eight per cent interest. If we can borrow money

for these projects at two per cent, why would you cash in your money and liquidate that to pay cash for these projects?. It is a much wiser way to plan financially." Johnson said it is important for the future that the province continues to build. "We cannot stop building Alberta because the future of this province is really bright. People are moving here and unless we invest in the schools, invest in the infrastructure – and that means rural Alberta as well – we are not going to have that economic opportunity. We are not going to have that quality of life for our residents. I know that we have invested

in a lot of new schools over the last four or five years, but we haven't invested enough in modernizations and upgrades to the schools in rural Alberta. Her (Premier Redford's) commitment to do that I think is great news for this province." Johnson said this part of Alberta is lucky to have people like Doug Griffiths (Minister of Infrastructure) and Verlyn Olson (Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development), as part of the provincial government's cabinet. "They are doing an incredible job of bringing that rural perspective to the table and making sure we continue building rural Alberta."

Letters to the Editor


McDonald's operations supervisor Richard Martins, from left to right, Camrose owner Maddie Sharma, Camrose Special Olympics athlete George "Rocky" Hagel, Special Olympics volunteer Carol Wideman and Ronald McDonald gathered to celebrate the $4,357 raised during McHappy Day on May 8 for the local program. Proceeds from each market were split 50/50 between the local Special Olympics and Ronald McDonald House. Then the two splits from Wetaskiwin and Camrose were added together for the Ronald McDonald House.

As representative of the peti-

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

Proceed with prudence! “Let us proceed with prudence,” I thought as I read several recent articles about trends in the delivery of higher education in Alberta, Canada and the USA. When post secondary education first became available via internet, it was hailed as a great opportunity for those who had no other access to continued learning – and it was. Students could sit face-to-face with a computer in their own homes and complete learning that would earn credits for a university degree. Technology has brought us education by internet, at less cost, and now it threatens to replace the classroom experience, perhaps within the next five or ten years. It’s time for second thoughts on the subject. Is it really wise to totally replace the classroom experience? Dr. Allen Berger, dean of the University of Alberta Augustana Campus here in Camrose, addressed the issue in a recent “Second Thought” column in The Booster (Apr. 30/13). With technology making available “massive open on-line courses and free on-line educational materials ... " he asks "why will students in the future – perhaps as soon as 2020 – even need to come or want to come to a brick and mortar campus?” He warns that university campuses will have to have a “compelling answer” and he believes that “it is human-scale, residential campuses like Augustana that are best positioned to provide a persuasive response.” He explains, “Our advantage is that we already offer what the internet cannot and will likely never be good at providing: one-on-one relationships with caring faculty mentors; learning through in-depth discussion and problem-solving with peers; rich opportunities to apply and test learning in community settings or through guided undergraduate research; well-designed and diverse programs to help young people navigate a pathway to responsible adulthood and citizenship, etc.” Further education is more than simply learning and accepting without question what has been passed down to us. If we did that, we would still think Earth was flat. Questioning and research leads to discovery but discovery needs questioning and testing, too, before tossing out old ways which accomplished outstanding expansion of knowledge and once-believed-to-be impossible achievements – like putting a man on the moon. Dean Allen Berger hopes we will learn from observing the negative effects of massive open on-line courses that enable students in USA to “collect certificates like Easter eggs in a basket.” This thought is echoed by associate professor of physics Michael Pravica, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, writing in the Edmonton Journal, (May 24/13). He says “Beyond instilling core knowledge in students, universities teach them how to think, solve problems and interact with the world.” He adds that “This education is seriously hampered when the only means of learning is via a one-dimensional computer and the opportunities for getting questions answered ... are seriously hampered when one professor teaches thousands of students at a time.” He also notes that for science and engineering-based students there is no substitute for hands-on lab experiments which the internet cannot provide. Based on my own classroom experience, I know that my learning would have been seriously restricted without the mentoring of instructors, discussion of subject matter, and how the knowledge might be used to make our community and the world a better place. I think that you would probably say the same. Let us use teaching via internet with prudence!

tioners, I, Shelley Dolter, would like to inform the community that we are very appalled to have been told that our 2,800 name petition was deemed "invalid" by Battle River School Division (BRSD). Although we question the fact that they say it is "non compliant" because we did not ask for a public meeting, we are still pursuing other avenues. We question the statement made by Dr. Larry Payne regarding how they will calculate an "accurate overall percentage" mark. We are disturbed that living in a democ-

racy, a 2,800 signature petition holds no weight and has been minimized to being a "portion" of our parent and community populations. Considering there are just over 6,000 students in the Battle River School Division, this petition represents a significant amount of concern from the parents and community. We appreciate the work of all our dedicated parents who are trying to keep our Alberta school system one of the best in the world. Shelley Dolter, Hay Lakes

Literacy award for Andreassen By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Adult Learning Council (CALC) will present its 2013 literacy award to David Andreassen during a short program at Camrose Composite High School June 5 in recognition of his passionate and engaging approach to teaching English Language Arts. The program is scheduled to get underway at 12 noon. Andreassen started teaching English at the junior high school in Stettler in 1975 before moving to CCHS and, this past year, to the PACE Outreach School at the Camrose Community Centre. He spent three years from 1990 to 1993 teaching school for military dependants at the National Defence School in Germany. Andreassen has found literature to be a wonderful springboard for teaching students about life. "I find it enormously exciting when students take ideas and build their own ideas, and get involved and engaged," said Andreassen. "That, to me, is magical." Andreassen believes he has a good understanding of how someone in construction must feel after he completes a new home build. "It is interesting going around this town or looking beyond it and thinking I helped build that hockey coach, that pharmacist, that Brownie leader, or Lord help me, that Minister of Education," he said. "Just as a builder is proud of what he leaves, it is nice to see former students succeeding. That in itself is wonderfully gratifying." Andreassen's nomination for the 2013 literacy award was supported by 27 letters written by peers and students that outlined the extraordinary impact he has had on them. Colleagues described him as a mentor who "lives his subject matter, modelling his passion for reading and literacy through his humour, curiosity, and his interest in investigating the impact of words on our hearts, souls and daily lives." Students commended him for challenging them to do their best. "His dramatic and animated approach," said one student,

David Andreassen

"brings literature to life and instills the desire to learn." Andreassen has found over the years that students are most interested in literacy when it is meaningful to them. "When it is something that engages them – and that doesn't matter if it is a piece of classical literature or a shopping list – if they see value in what they are doing they get excited about it. Within the parameters that are set by the mandated curriculum, I pick things that interest me. If I get excited about it they do as well, or as many of them as possible. If something is a dull and boring slog and I treat it as such I can't expect anyone to be terribly interested. It gets infectious." Andreassen is often fascinated to see how many people in the community have problems with literacy. "One of my sons, an electrician, said in his first-year class at NAIT, smart and capable people with wonderful hand skills, who had done the ten and a half months of practical, who knew something about what they were doing, either dropped out or flunked out because they were bad readers, while the people who were strong readers and also had the hand or other skills thrived. It is sad to me that a significant portion of our population doesn't see the value of being good readers until they are in their twenties, and by that time it is hard to make up lost ground." Andreassen believes that rather than making us smarter, electronics and the internet are making us more stupid and caus-

ing us to have shorter attention spans. "I think that is really sad. Average kids don't read as well as average kids did 20 years ago. They don't have to. They can't sustain their concentration. The author of the book, The Shallows points out that people will skim a sentence or paragraph (on a website for example) and if it seems that is enough will flip to something else or go sideways, or hit a link and that is it. Or sometimes the words are too difficult so they will get something that is dumber. So what happens is that we know about a whole lot more stuff but less about anything. Those people who are able to concentrate and sustain will thrive in this world and those who can't are doomed not to." Andreassen is very impressed by the work that is being done by CALC. "They are taking people who have weak literacy skills and giving them the tools so they can prosper. The world demands so much and whatever the cause – and there is no end of causes – each of these people has an interesting back story. There are holes to fill, and because of what CALC does, these people are able to become useful, productive, taxpaying citizens. Whatever it costs, the return is several fold. Sadly, the organization and so many others like it are depending more and more on the volunteer pool which is getting thinner as more demands are put on them." Andreassen and his wife, Wenche, have three grown sons. Lars, their eldest, is completing his Ph.D. in entomology in Winnipeg, Erik is an electrician in Edmonton, and Sven has just completed a Master's degree in archiving in Lethbridge. The literacy award program will include music and guest speakers, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to congratulate Andreassen in person. All interested community members who support literacy and learning in Camrose are encouraged to attend. There is no cost to attend, and no pre-registration is required.

Urban Animals, an exhibit of 18 paintings by Jason Carter illustrating how animals have been displaced by urbanization, will be on display this month at the Chuck MacLean Centre. The exhibit is open for viewing from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Using modified triptych (three paintings), Carter tells the stories of six animals indigenous to Alberta. The first painting in each triptych is dedicated to the animal, with nothing to distract from it except the colour. "Jason often treats the colour in his paintings as the second subject, often equally as important as the main subject," says an Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program media release. "Colour can be emotional or inspirational and has a subtext of its own." The colour established in the first painting is carried through to the second painting, where the animals are shown in their natural habitat, the prairies, the mountains, or the river valley.

"It is Jason's intention to evoke a sense of the beauty and expansiveness of each of these animals' natural habitats," states the release. The last painting in the triptych suggests what the 'natural habitat' might look like now. "It is not meant to shame or discourage expansion or industrialization; rather it is a fun exploration into the minds of these rural animals now living in an urban world," says the release. It is Carter's hope that his paintings will create a new consciousness and continue the dialogue regarding the land on which we live and who or what we share with it. Urban Animals was curated by Bridget Ryan and Janet Sinclair-Gibson and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation of the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program is supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. The exhibition was generously funded by Syncrude Canada.

MS Bike Tour back in Camrose this weekend By Murray Green

The MS Bike Tour from Nisku to Camrose and back is taking place on June 8 and 9. The event starts at the Ritchie Brothers Auctioneers lot in Nisku and goes to the Wetaskiwin Hospital and then to Camrose on the first day. The organizers hold a banquet Saturday night at the CRE and then on Sunday the riders

head north towards Miquelon Lake and over to Hay Lakes before going back to Nisku. About 1,800 participants take part in the bike tour. Each cyclist is required to raise at least the minimum pledge amount of $295. "This year will be the best Leduc to Camrose MS Bike Tour yet. I can say this in advance with confidence because each bike tour since the first one over

23 years ago has been the best ever,” said Anne Belohorec. The MS Bike Tour is a pledge-based fund-raising event that provides Canadians with the opportunity to ride through scenic and often spectacular parts of the country. The MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fund-raising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event

and others like it fund innovative programs and services and support groundbreaking research dedicated to finding a cure. Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and

vary for everyone. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world, which is why we need your help. Whether you’re a dedicated cyclist or looking for a bit of recreation, pedalling in the MS Bike Tours means you will be a part of an extraordinary group of Canadians who are getting outside to raise money in the fight against MS.

The Wagner Warriors won the season finale of GSN's (Game Show Network) hit series The American Bible Challenge on May 23. The champions from Owasso and Tulsa, Oklahoma, went on to defeat Team Sisters of Mary and Team Girls of Grace in the finale, winning a total of $140,000 for One Nation One Day – an event in which Wagner Ministries International will be among the ministries from around the world who will gather to bring lifesaving aid and the teachings of The Bible to the people of Honduras. Canadian comedian and popular game show host Jeff Foxworthy was the emcee of the latest game hit quiz show. But, that isn't the only connection to Canada. The Wagner Warriors have a Camrose connection. Team members Daniel Wagner, Joshua Wagner and Jesse Wagner are all young adult students and are the sons of Nicole and Kevin Wagner. Nicole was born in Camrose and is the daughter of Denise and Lawrence Dufresne of Camrose. The Wagner brothers were born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Josh and Jesse are currently students at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa and Daniel will start as a freshman in the fall. A fourth brother, Luke, is also becoming an expert about the Bible. They have been part of their family's international ministry their whole lives. They're also four-time Bible Quiz Bowl champions, and were determined to win on behalf of their family's mission work. "They won two episodes of the show before going to the finals," explained Denise. "They earned $20,000 for each of the first two episodes they won and another $100,000 for the final show to give them $140,000 to go towards their ministries." Denise and about 12 family and guests watched each show not knowing what the outcome would be. "The boys were not allowed to tell us how they did, or how many episodes they were in," added Denise. "I think it was wonderful that they won. They are great young people and they have worked very hard for this. I'm very proud and thrilled." They auditioned in January and all of the episodes were prerecorded. The American Bible Challenge is a game show in which three teams of three con-

Irene Malcolm, of Camrose, won a kit filled with all the supplies needed to survive the first 72 hours of an emergency during Emergency Preparedness Week. Presenting the kit to Irene were Camrose fire chief Peter Krich (right) and Alberta Emergency Management Agency emergency management field officer Dieter Langer. If an emergency happens in your community it may take a while for emergency workers to reach you. You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.

By Samara Froland, Camrose Wildlife Stewardship Society summer coordinator “Bad Aliens,” a program on invasive bug species was presented by Mike Jenkins on the evening of May 30 at the Stoney Creek Centre in Camrose. Mike is a biological sciences technician from the city of Edmonton. The presenter entertained everyone with his interesting insight on alien species. Jenkins discussed numerous different species of bugs, including the elusive mountain pine beetle and the satin moth. Additionally, he brought preserved specimens of the Asian longhorned beetle and emerald ash borer. Erin Specht, a summer employee of Battle River Watershed Alliance, attended the event. “I am taking environmental science at Augustana and I am trying to expose myself to as

many talks in this area as possible,” she explained. Specht finished by saying that she will be attending more of CWSS’s summer events. “I was looking through the program brochure and saw a number of topics I am interested in. I hope my Thursdays nights are free for the next few months.” The next event for CWSS will be Thursday, June 6, at the Stoney Creek Centre at 7 p.m. It is a campfire event involving storytelling, games and music. This event has been cleverly titled “Fire It Up.” Professor Paul Johnson from Augustana, and others, will be providing entertainment for the evening. Tim Hortons donated coffee and doughnuts for the “Bad Aliens” presentation and has committed to a similar donation for each subsequent CWSS event.

Camrose Night Classic back for another year By Dan Jensen

There might not be much sleeping going on this weekend. One-hundred-and-ten soccer teams from across the province, including 12 from Camrose, will be playing all day and to the early hours of the morning in the fifteenth annual Camrose Night Classic at Rudy Swanson Park, Harry Andreassen Park, Charlie Killam School, Camrose Composite High School and Augustana June 7, 8 and 9. The games will get underway at 7 p.m. on Friday and finish with the finals Sunday afternoon. The latest games are scheduled to start at 12:15 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday. The Camrose Night Classic is the only one of its kind in the province. "It's just a fun tournament," said Camrose Minor Soccer Association president Konrad Schellenberg. "The kids love the novelty of being able to stay up late and play soccer in the dark. They get a taste for it at the Under 12 level and they just want to keep coming." The Camrose Night Classic had record attendance in 2012 with 118 teams participating. The year before that 118 teams were invited but some had to drop out at the last moment. "We're a bit lower with the number of teams this time but that is okay," said Schellenberg. "We have found that, for planning purposes, 110 teams is just about right. If we get much bigger than that we have to have more fields, more referees, more of everything." Camrose girls' and boys' teams in the under 12 group will include the Super Strikers, Flipchuk, Thompson and Bridger. Camrose boys' and girls' teams in the under 14 category will be

the Vermeer, Hutchinson, Holm and Preza. Camrose will have one representative in the Under 16 girls' category and one in the Under 16 boys' category (Titans). Camrose Sabeski and Camrose Voytechek will compete in the Under 18 girls' category. As in the past, each team will be guaranteed three games, one of which is considered a night game. The older the players, the later they play. The Night Classic will feature only teams which play at the Tier 4 level. Historically, the Classic has had a hard time attracting Tier 3 teams because of the many other tournaments in the province. "We've had very little interest from Tier 3 teams," said Schellenberg. "For this year there were only three teams that were interested." The teams will have good support from family members and friends, many of whom will be camping at the Camrose Regional Exhibition campground on the east side of the city. Camping forms are available online from "The parents stay up just as late as the kids," explained Schellenberg. "Even through the bad weather they are out at the pitches cheering them on. All the games run rain or shine. The only thing that stops them is lightning." Winning teams will receive special medals that have been custom designed by Windwood Signs. The Camrose Night Classic is sanctioned by the Central Alberta Soccer Association and the Alberta Soccer Association.

AJHL ready to celebrate By Murray Green

The Alberta Junior Hockey League will be celebrating its 50th season this fall. The league will have a few changes in the milestone season. The 2013-14 AJHL regular season will start on Friday, September 6. The complete schedule will be announced in late June. The AJHL will recognize its 50 years of history across Alberta with commemorative community presentations. The top 50 players of all-time and a year-long feature to highlight 50 stories of 50 seasons will take place. The CJHL has introduced strict new sanctions for payment to players for any manner that jeopardizes, or potentially jeopardizes their eligibility to participate in college or university hockey at any level. New sanctions for violating rules on the amount and type of consideration payable, as part of a CJHL Player Transfer Agreement. In addition, the AJHL has adopted further consequences for teams found to be violating the rule. The head coach, or general manager of the violating team would also receive a one-year suspension and the team would be ineligible to compete in the AJHL playoffs for the year of the violation. Hockey Canada decided in a revised definition of an import. No player having Canadian citizenship shall be classified as an import beginning in the fall. Previously, out of province players were identified as imports on an AJHL roster. An AJHL team will now be limited to a maximum of four players on the roster that have each played in 41 or more lifetime CHL games. Players having played fewer than 41 CHL games are not subject to this limitation. Teams interested in hosting the 2015 Western Canada Cup will be required to submit their bid in the fall, and a decision on the host community will be made at the AJHL semi-annual meeting in November 2013. The AJHL has established a sub committee to review the option of a draft. The committee will be chaired by Fran Gow (AJHL) and include Rod Knelsen (Drumheller Dragons), Ken Bracko (Calgary Canucks), Kyle Chase (Sherwood Park Crusaders) and Darren Myshak (Spruce Grove Saints). The Alberta Junior Hockey League will continue to operate under the direction of chairman Greg Wood of Camrose and commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk. The staff will consist of former Camrose resident George McCorry (vice-president, officiating), Charla Flett (vice-president, communications), Ken Dentzien (referee assignor), and Bob Clark (special advisor). The AJHL has also welcomed two staff members since last year’s AGM, including Dean Laschowski (video review manager) and newly appointed vice-president of hockey operations, Fran Gow. The 2013 semi-annual meeting will take place in Red Deer on November 23.

Human Services changing to help Albertans By Murray Green

Human Services minister Dave Hancock explained several changes and the new social policy framework during the Rotary Club of Camrose meeting on Monday, May 27. Rotary members and guests showed interest in the Social Policy Framework and how it affects various divisions of the government. Past president LeRoy Johnson introduced Mr. Hancock as the most experienced cabinet minister. He has been entrusted with many of the provinces most important portfolios and as minister of advanced education, he was here for the ground-breaking of the Edgeworth Centre. "I thank you for the work you are doing. I drove by the youth project, and there is nothing more important than building your community and making sure we have active engaged communities," said Mr. Hancock. When Premier Allison Redford was elected in the fall of 2011 one of the things she did was create the department of human services. "I got the call to head the new department, which represents one-third of the government in terms of civil service. It is not as big in terms of budget as health, or education, but a massive department," added Mr. Hancock. "It is about human supports. How do we ensure that every family has the opportunity to be successful and overcome barriers to success? People want the opportunity to maximize potential," said Mr. Hancock. "Over the last year, we have been engaging Albertans and saying what kind of place do we have, what kind of place do we want to live in, what are our common goals and values as a society?" he asked. "We want to ensure that people can be supported when they need it, to have fairness in their worksite and to get home safely to their families at the end of the day, all of that is extremely important if we want to have

Human Services Minister Dave Hancock addresses Rotary.

strong families," he said. "That really comes to the focus on the social policy framework. The premier asked us in my first mandate in this ministry to take a look at our social framework. Do we really know and understand what it is we are trying to achieve as a society? Over the past year we have engaged in a process, talking with and engaging 31,000 Albertans in the process of saying what kind of place do we want to have, what kind of place do we want to live in, what are our common goals and values as a society?" Mr. Hancock suggested that the government has done a lot of good things over the years in terms of reacting to pressures in our communities. "But we have done it on a reactive basis, creating programs around issues. We haven't done a very good job as a government and I think most governments would have to admit the same thing, of weav-

ing it together to say what is our common purpose and how do we ensure that the program and service delivery that we have matches the community needs and individual needs and ensures that people don't fall through the cracks?" The government has heard criticism of program because it is designed for a particular purpose. "People are following rules because we built accountability systems around them and that leaves out somebody that doesn't fit that particular design and humans are a complex being, so nobody actually fits the actual design," explained Mr. Hancock. It creates a lot of opportunity to miss the mark. "The social policy framework was really about developing that piece of policy that says what is it we as a society want to achieve," he added. "The other thing that is really

necessary to know and understand is that social policy can't be owned by government. There is no magic wand and there is no legislation that can cure social ills." It all starts in own our communities. "That is what you know as members of Rotary, that you create the kind of community you want to live in by being part of that community, understanding what its issues are and then helping to deal with those issues as a community," he said. "Governments have a role at bringing some resources to the table, bringing some inspiration to the table sometimes, bringing some support levels to the table, but in order for us as a province and communities in the province to deal with the social issues, we need to own them as communities and that really is what social policy framework comes to." Every Albertan should have the opportunity to live with respect and dignity and participate in the opportunities we have here. "Your community built the universities, the community made sure the education systems were there. In so many ways we do that in our communities, we provide those supports in a way to enhance the ability of families to raise their children and to move ahead," continued Mr. Hancock. "That is what the social policy framework really focuses on." The provincial government passed a Children First Act to ensure that our children get a good start. Children who get a good start can succeed. "Children who are born with FASD have challenges all their lives. Judge Ken (Rostad) can tell how often people appear before him and how often his colleagues have to deal with people who have FASD, which makes it very difficult for the criminal justice system to achieve any positive result in that process." Research in the area of family violence very clearly shows that children who are born into

and grow up in a family violence situation tend to be developmentally delayed. "If you find somebody who is engaged in family violence, chances are they grew up in family violence," said Mr. Hancock. "Those are the things we need to deal with as a society and as a community if we want our children to get a good start. Everybody has an interest in this." If we want our communities to be strong and an attractive place to live and raise families, we need safe communities. "We need communities that have opportunity, we need communities where we know our children can get the health care and the education that they need, and that means dealing with the social issues." If you want people to move to Camrose, people want to know it is a safe place. "If you deal with the issues of poverty, violence and social justice, then you have a place where people feel comfortable in their community and proud about a place where they can grow their families." The social cost of failure is high. "We have a criminal justice system that cannot actually fix the problem. A chief from Saskatchewan said education is the new buffalo. "I thought that was a meaningful phrase, because education is the opportunity for most people to move out of where they grew up, if that is what they need to do. Poverty looks different in each of our communities. The fundamentals that we need are how to get people to overcome their barriers to success, to achieve what they need to achieve to be successful in their community," said Mr. Hancock. "I encourage you as leaders in your community to be engaged in that discussion and to encourage others to be involved in that discussion. Community and social issues have to be owned by the community and have to be solved by the community," he added.

Report from the Legislature Doug Griffiths, MLA, Battle River-Wainwright Wildfire Emergency Planning and Livestock Options

Wildfires are a hazard that can spring up quickly and cause major devastation to farms or acreages. Knowing the steps to take to minimize the risk and reduce the potential damage to family, property and animals is the first line of defense against wildfire. Here are some tips for keeping livestock safe in the event of a wildfire. Know the Risks and Get Prepared

Option 1: Shelter in Place Prepare and maintain a fuelreduced area such as a plowed or heavily grazed field with minimum of stubble: the area should be watered, shaded and located well away from forested areas; if possible disc or plow outside perimeter; be prepared to round up, re-

locate your livestock and provide them with feed/water. Option 2: Evacuation Plan

1. Have a current list of all animals, including their location and records of feeding, vaccinations, and tests. Make this information available at various locations on the farm. 2. Have sufficient supplies for temporary identification of your animals, such as plastic neckbands and permanent markers to label animals with your name, address, and telephone number. 3. Have handling equipment such as halters, cages, blankets, and appropriate tools for each kind of animal. Include boltcutters to quickly free animals in an emergency. 4. Contact your local emergency management authority and become familiar with at least two possible evacuation routes. Familiarize all family members and employees with your evacuation plans. 5. Arrange in advance for a place to shelter your animals.

Plan ahead and work within your community to establish safe shelters for farm animals, such as fairgrounds, other farms, racetracks, and exhibition centres. 6. Ensure that sufficient feed and medical supplies are available at the destination. 7. Be ready to leave as soon as an evacuation is ordered. Remember, once the emergency hits, roads may be restricted to emergency service vehicles and not open to traffic. 8. Set up safe transportation. You will need to have access to trucks, trailers, and other vehicles suitable for transporting each type of animal, along with experienced handlers and drivers. You may need access to a portable loading ramp to load, or unload, animals. 9. If animals are evacuated to a centralized location such as a fair grounds for shelter and will co-mingle with other animals of unknown health status try to: make sure your animals have sufficient identification (e.g.

ear tags or brands) to be able to tell them apart from others; minimize the contact among animals from different premises; protect feed and water from contact with wild animals and birds. Verify the health and vaccination status of animals which must be co-mingled; handle any mortalities in a manner to minimize the possible spread of contagious diseases; monitor the health and wellbeing of the animals on a daily basis, whether sheltered in place or evacuated. Seek appropriate veterinary medical advice and services on suspicion of an animal disease problem; accommodation will need to include milking equipment for dairy cows (as applicable). Milk may need to be stored separately from cows of other herds. Milk “pickup� companies should be notified where to pick up the milk Option 3: Last Resort Freeing Your Animals

Livestock are very sensitive to wildfire anywhere within their

sensory range. Normal reactions vary from nervousness, to panic, to aggressive and resistive escape attempts. Livestock are often injured or killed by fleeing from a wildfire into fences, barriers and other fire risks. Once the flight syndrome kicks in, it is retained long after the smoke, heat and noise stimuli are removed. In the case of a fast moving fire, some landowners spray paint their phone numbers on the sides of livestock before setting them free. Others attach identification tags to animals. If you choose to leave a halter on your animal, consider attaching identification – such as a luggage tag. Finally, be aware firefighters may cut fences and open gates, if time and safety concerns allow. As the MLA for Battle RiverWainwright, I am always available to assist constituents. If you have any questions or concerns regarding preparing livestock for wildfires or any other matter, I can be reached in my constituency office at 780-842-6177.

Knull commits to teaching in Kamifurano By Murray Green

Jack Stuart School teacher Brenda Knull has been granted a two-year leave of absence, so she can pursue her dream working in Camrose's sister city in the town of Kamifurano, Japan. The Camrose/Japan Friendship Society president Michiko Rasmussen and her committee of Mike Steeves and Thomas Midbo selected Brenda as the local ambassador in Japan for two years. She will be teaching English as a second language to various age groups through the school system. "The school system is not like over here. In Japan, the mayor is in charge of everything," explained Michiko. "Brenda is hired by the mayor to teach. They have school all year round, so she will start in the summer." Brenda wraps up her school year with special needs students at the end of June and then it's off to Japan in July for training to prepare for teaching starting on August 1. "Since the partnership with Kamifurano started 14 years ago, we have sent seven teachers over to teach," said Michiko. "We have two-year contracts, so other people get a chance to have the same experience. Japan puts a lot of money into the program to have teachers come over, so one year wouldn't be fair to them either." Brenda will have two roles in Camrose's sister city, Kamifurano. "She is not only

teaching, but will be an ambassador for Camrose. We are happy to have Brenda go because she is easy going, good with children and will be a good ambassador. We are very proud to send her on behalf of our society." She taught in New Norway before joining the staff at Jack Stuart.

"This is a huge honour and privilege to be able to go. I absolutely love teaching and like to travel. I went to Japan and South Korea in 2010, so I have some experience being in those countries. Five of my seven trips have been to southeast Asia and I love the culture and people. Teaching

different ages in another culture will expand by experience and knowledge." Brenda is welcoming the challenge. "I thrive on challenges and adventure. I will be teaching elementary, junior high, high school and even adults. Teaching a second language for a wide

range of ages will be the challenge I'm looking for," she said. "Year around teaching will be different, but when they have a holiday I can do some travelling. When I work extra hours in the evenings I will be able to bank some time to put towards time off for travel. That gives me more freedom to explore Japan." One of the first things to check off on her bucket list will be to see Mount Fiji. "I know Kamifurano is located on a northern island, so I will be bringing my snowboard and going to the mountains when I can. I'm also looking forward to the various festivals they have throughout the year. It is a great way to learn about the culture," she added. "I hope to bring back knowledge of the country that I can share with students here. I want to share my experiences and pass on to others that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Life is a huge adventure. By being open to challenges, you can have new experiences." Brenda is ready to push herself out of her comfort zone to meet those challenges. "I have a great life in Camrose, but it's something I want to do. My parents have come around to the fact it will be two years," she said. "It's something I really want to do. I talked with Mike at a school session and that is the first I heard of the Camrose/Japan Friendship Society and his teaching in Japan. I talked to him a lot, so I know what to expect."

City council given information for church decision By Dan Jensen

City council will have no shortage of information to consider prior to making a decision June 17 on whether it wants to approve third reading of a bylaw that would change the districting of property at 3505- and 3605-50 Street from R2-R2L single family residential to I institutional district and clear the way for a new Catholic church. City director of planning and development services Jeff Laurien presented a report to council May 21 which responded to concerns expressed by the residents with regards to the impact the possible church development would have on property values, traffic, noise, sunlight, future development, the ability to enjoy their yards, and wildlife. Property values The report said administration is unaware of any legislation which specifically requires council to consider property values as part of any decision. It added that, according to the City assessor, new churches typically do not have a significant impact on nearby property values. Traffic The report noted that as much of the traffic demand for church developments is typically occurring during time periods when background traffic conditions

are historically low, the net impact to the City of the proposed church development would likely be minimal. "The City has already identified that as a condition of a future development permit, the church development would be required to complete a traffic impact analysis impact assessment for the proposed development. With this finalized document and the proper design of the future church accesses, engineering expects that the impact to the City's transportation network will likely be at an acceptable level to minimize potential impacts on the City and surrounding neighbourhood." Noise The report said the proposed church may generate additional noise above and beyond that of a residential use but is generally considered compatible with residential uses and that the hours of operation indicated are consistent with the City's nuisance abatement bylaw. Height The report noted the institutional use zone does not have a maximum requirement, so technically, the proposed church could be built to a very tall height. "The current zoning of the subject property is that of a R2 (single family residential), which has a maximum height restriction of 8.5

metres. However, a height restriction of 8.5 metres for a church may be prohibitive in nature. The applicant must have a maximum height in mind that would work for their needs and not adversely impact neighbouring properties which could be considered." Parking The report noted that parking is typically an issue that could be addressed by local bylaw enforcement should it become an issue. Utilities The report said it is unclear to administration how the proposed development could create difficulties in getting utilities to other properties in the area. "Other properties in the area would have the opportunity to extend utilities to their property through necessary rights-of-way and easements. If these rights-ofway or easements do not currently exist to a property it would be the responsibility of the property owner in question to have them extended to the subject property as necessary regardless of the proposed development." Future development The report said it is unclear to administration how the proposed development could impact the potential development of other properties. "Each and every property is reviewed on its own

merit for development when the necessary applications are submitted to administration. Further, there is no guarantee on any property that future development will be permitted. Every property is subject to the land use bylaw and other relevant legislation in force at the time of the proposed development." Discretionary use The report indicated that the current R2 zoning lists the church as discretionary, which means that the use may not be allowed per the discretion of the development officer upon review of the required development permit. "If the applicant were to purchase the subject land there would be uncertainty as to whether the use would be permitted. Thus, to gain a certain level of certainty prior to purchasing the subject property, the applicant (for redistricting) is choosing to pursue the rezoning of the subject lands to institutional, which lists churches as a permitted use. A development permit will still be needed under this zoning but as long as all requirements are met, the use could not be refused because of its permitted status under the institutional zoning." Area redevelopment plan The report recommended that the area not be includ-

ed in an area development plan since a large portion of the identified area has been recently developed and is continuing to be developed at this time. "To complete an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) a request for proposals and requirements and specification would have to be developed by administration to receive proposals from the qualified applicants. Administration would then have to choose the best qualified consultant to complete the necessary ARP under the supervision of administration. The successful applicant would then complete the ARP and present it to council for approval. This process typically takes 12 to 18 months to complete. The cost of such a process would not be known until a successful consultant is chosen based on their cost information, however a rough estimate based on discussion with other planners in Alberta would be between $70,000 to $100,000. For reference, the Augustana Redevelopment Plan completed in September, 2012, had a budget for the consultant of $61,000. Based on discussion with several planners in Alberta that offer these types of services, a budget of $61,000 is very low now and would result in a less than comprehensive product."

Axemen score five runs in final inning By Murray Green

The Camrose Axemen scored five runs in the seventh inning to defeat the Edmonton Warriors 10-6 in North Central Alberta Baseball League action on May 28. Camrose scored a run in both the third and fourth innings to build up a lead. The game was a pitcher's duel in the first five innings and then it turned into

a battle of the batters in the final two frames. Shortstop Cal Zimmer led the charge on offence with three hits. Kris Kushnerick and Paul Ofrim chipped in with two hits each. Brian Mulder drove in three runs, while Zimmer and Kris Johnson brought in two runs each with hits. Starting pitcher Ofrim threw

hard for five innings, but ran into some trouble in the sixth. In six innings he allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks, while striking out eight batters for the win. Mulder suffered some wildness in relief. In his inning he allowed two runs on three walks and a hit batter. The Axemen host the Stony Plain Mets on June 11.

By Murray Green Five area youth golfers competed in the Team Canada World Golf Qualifiers on May 25. Four of the smaller golfers brought back medals with two silver and two bronze. The golf tournament was held at the Collicutt Siding Golf Club in Crossfield. In the boys' 11 to 13 age division, Mason Kucy of Camrose fired an even 86 on both rounds to end the event at plus 14. That was good enough for a bronze medal. Evan Urquhart of Calgary shot a plus seven and Ethan Choi of Pincher Creek was plus 10 to round out the top three golfers. Jace Shannon of Forestburg came in second in the boys' eight and under category by shooting a 45 in both rounds for a total of nine over. Graysen Collins of Calgary was plus two. David Hopkins of Viking placed third with a plus 24 score to receive a bronze medal. In the boys' nine and 10 age division, Devin Kucy found himself in a tough field with several good golfers. He ended the day tied for fourth with a plus 11 score. Theo Sekulic of Rycroft

and Marko Banic of Dewinton were plus eight, Rory Huycke of Calgary was plus nine and RunHao (Arthur) Deng of Calgary was also plus 11. Jayla Kucy wasn't out-done by her brothers. She placed second in the girls' nine and under category with a plus 18. The winner was Alexa Wingnean of Edmonton with a plus 14. Juniors Camrose’s Michael Harrison, shot rounds of 77 and 74 to finish third in the Boston Pizzapresented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Nationwide Series at The Links in Spruce Grove. Wetaskiwin’s Brett Hawken, won the event with a birdie on his final hole to win the junior division. He had a first round of 70 and a final round of 77. Patrick Gobran of Edmonton finished second with a 68 and 80. Michael's brother Andrew Harrison finished fourth in the tougher juvenile division (ages 15 and 16). Brett Pasula of Red Deer shot rounds of 69 and 76 to place first, Noah Lubberding of St. Albert was second and Alex Corrigan of Calgary was third. Andrew fired rounds of 76 and 71.

By Murray Green The difference between two Canadian icon rock and roll bands from the west coast, Chilliwack and the Headpins, is the appealing, but pounding vocals from Darby Mills. The headpins were originally formed by Brian MacLeod and Ab Bryant of Chilliwack as a side project to fill in the gaps between shows and recording deals. The members of Chilliwack added drummer Bernie Aubin and Darby into the mix to have instant success. The far reaching vocals and the raw energy that Darby brought to the band made an immediate impact. Catchy tunes combined with a Canadian party attitude vaulted the band into music icons as they opened for the best bands in the country. Headpins were bold enough to turn a radio contest into a magical career for the hard rocking band. After winning a local radio contest, the group was able to pull in enough resources to record Turn It Loud that also featured a song by the same name. Chilliwack band member Bill Henderson co-produced the record to add even more cohesiveness to the project. Charged with great expectations and a solid group of musicians, the new band was ready to take the country by storm. The song "Turn It Loud" was viewed as a national anthem for Canadian rock and roll of the early '80s. The band achieved double platinum status and the song stayed on top of the charts for six straight weeks. Mills had the most powerful set of pipes in the music business. Her rock growl was matched by her rolling purr. She was quickly

compared to Janis Joplin and Robert Plant. Then the band released one of the best songs in the history of music in "Don’t It Make Ya Feel” that left radio stations scrambling with constant requests. Supporting songs “Breakin’ Down” (about suicide), “People” and the powerful ballad “Winnin" soon turned the record into gold. Some people thought it was a greatest hits release, rather than a debut album in 1982. A few short months later it went platinum. The debut sold over a quarter million copies in Canada alone and would be certified double platinum, to make it one of the most successful debut albums by a Canadian group ever. After two years of touring the band went back into the studios to record Line of Fire with powerful singles “Just One More Time” and “Don’t Stand In The Line Of Fire” that stayed on the course of the first release. Another extended tour around the world had the band playing with KISS, Billy Squier, Quiet Riot and Whitesnake. Nearly two years would pass before the Headpins would emerge from the studios again. The result was Head Over Heels that produced “Still The One” and “Death Of Me.” It marked the third straight album certified gold or better. The band lost MacLeod to cancer, but the group reformed later. Headpins added Tony Dellacroce as their new guitarist, who toured with Jerry Doucette and Lee Aaron. They also added Alfie Galpin to the band. The Headpins play at 8 p.m. on June 14 at the Bailey Theatre.

Elk Island considers operating budget At the May 22, regular board meeting, Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) board of trustees received the 2013-14 preliminary operating budget (POB) for consideration. The POB for the upcoming school year is $65,082,031 and includes a projected deficit of $173,348, which will be covered by operating reserves. This POB was developed to reflect the mission, vision, beliefs, values and goals as set forth by the board of trustees in its divisional foundational statements. Within the framework of the division’s new administrative procedure 100 – distributed decision making, central and school leadership collaborated to create a financial plan with the following guiding principles: 1. Our work is first and foremost about children, and the funding allocation should provide equity so that each school (and thus each child) is treated fairly relative to all the other schools (and other students). 2. A fiscally responsible budget will be presented while maximizing the allocation to areas that have the greatest impact on student success. 3. The funding allocation will proportionately distribute funds to schools based on the needs of all of their students. 4. Classroom teachers will be allocated based on class size guidelines from Alberta Education. 5. Where a function of EICS will materially benefit from efficiencies of scale or the need for specialized expertise, the Division will centrally support that function. 6. Cuts to administration and Alberta Initiative for School Improvement (AISI) funding will not to be taken from the classroom. The POB was developed using funding and expenditure assumptions that were approved by the board at the April 17, 2013, regular board meeting and were updated in May based on new information. Details of the POB include the following: Enrolment is expected to increase by 124 full-time equivalent (FTE) students to 5,667 in ECS to Grade 12. EICS is heavily dependent on the provincial government as it accounts for 95 per cent of

its revenues; highlights of the impacts to funding include: Elimination of $375,000 AISI funding; Elimination of $175,000 of Transportation Fuel Initiative funding; Restructuring of Equity of Opportunity funding at a cost of $225,000; 10 per cent cut to administration funding that funds central office services at a cost of $281,000; Reduction of Plant Operations and Maintenance and Infrastructure funding of $339,000; Cuts or expiry of $171,000 to special grants; Two per cent Increase in Class Size and Inclusive Education funding. Overall, funding from Alberta Education to serve current EICS students and the additional 124 FTE students is expected to decrease by $567,000. Staffing has the greatest impact on quality education and at $50.8 million, represents 78 per cent of the division’s budget and an overall increase of 1.98 per cent over last year. EICS will serve its students with the following staffing composition: 338.27 FTE certificated staff, an overall increase of 12.29 over last year. 205.50 FTE support staff, an overall decrease of 12.38 over last year. School based staffing will see an overall increase of 13.1 FTE. Overall, the division is expecting to end the 2013-14 school year with accumulated operating surplus of $3.7 million. Total reserves designated for operations represent 3.32 per cent of expenditures, which is in line with the two to four per cent recommended by Alberta Education. At a special meeting on June 12, 2013, the board of trustees will review the POB in detail. Once approved, the 2013-2014 operating budget will be submitted to Alberta Education. EICS, part of Alberta’s publicly funded education system, is committed to developing educational opportunities in the context of Gospel values. EICS is dedicated to providing quality, faithbased learning environments to students of any background and faith, where their skills are nurtured and celebrated by dedicated, caring staff.

Things are different than they used to be in Camrose schools

5/30/13 4:08 PM

Everyone reads The Booster…

Over the last few years, Battle River School Division has been experiencing changes. In the City of Camrose, that has included: • Having more younger students than older students enrolled in local schools • Some Camrose schools being crowded, others not, as neighborhoods grow and change • An overall change in the number of students During the next 18 months, the school division will undertake a process of review and consultation, to make plans for potential changes in the way we configure our City of Camrose schools. BRSD would like to assure local parents that, as a school division, we are doing our homework to get an accurate picture of the future. While we may be required to take interim steps in Camrose for the fall of September 2013 in order to achieve a manageable number of students at some school sites, there will be an overall, long-term plan developed and there will be opportunities for input from parents and community members. We’re committed to hearing your suggestions and ideas. Please join us for an information session 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 11th Camrose Composite High School commons area.

Open Door Association has eventful year By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Open Door Association recapped an eventful year at its annual general meeting/Just Desserts evening May 16. "We completed our accreditation process successfully and renovated the Keystone Centre dorm building to create a bright clean space for youth in need of housing," said Camrose Open Door executive director Randal Nickel. "In addition, we increased our housing staffing to ensure safety and support for clients and staff." The majority of youth served by the Camrose Open Door Association in 2012-13 were very positive about their experiences. Fifteen of seventeen clients surveyed reported they were better able to meet their needs as a result of the services available at the Camrose Open Door, while seventeen of eighteen surveyed reported they were very comfortable or comfortable talking with Open Door staff. Twenty-four of twenty-six strongly agreed or agreed that Open Door staff genuinely want them to be successful, while twenty-four of twenty-five said they would recommend the Open Door to a friend or family member. Camrose Open Door Association received the support of 400 individuals who donated either time or money. The total fund-raising revenue was up by 13 per cent from the year before, while total donation revenue was up by 33 per cent from the year before. Ten government grants provided $800,000, or 65 per cent of the operating budget. The amount owing on the Keystone Centre mortgage was reduced by just over 20 per cent.

The Camrose Open Door Association board has determined that housing is the key to everything it does. "Without a safe place to go you can't hold down a job, go to school or be healthy," said Nickel. "The first quote in our annual report really highlights that point. That a typical 25-year-old male has a 64 per cent chance of reaching age 75 if he is living in a housing shelter or in secure housing. It has an incredible impact on a person's physical health and it has an incredible impact on mental health." The Augustana campus of the University of Alberta, through the Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities, is assisting the Camrose Open Door Association by conducting a needs assessment. "They are getting a sense of the housing needs for youth and young adults in our community," said Nickel. "That will hopefully give us some direction on how we want to move forward." Nickel said the Camrose Open Door Association wants to build beyond providing just crisis supports to providing long term benefits. "What we really want to see is to avoid having clients return for each crisis and maybe to build on their resiliency. Camrose Open Door Association provides outreach through supportive housing and a listening ear, peer connections through the Cafe Connections (which provides paid work experience and work development), and community helpers by training and supporting youth and adults to help others. The association also provides professional counselling for youth and families, and support services for adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

Carberry and Block grateful for Open Door

Taylor Block and Sasha Carberry told their stories at the Open Door's Just Desserts evening May 16. By Dan Jensen

Sasha Carberry and Taylor Block would rather not think about where they would be if it wasn't for the Camrose Open Door Association. Block came to the Camrose Open Door for the first time five years ago after he found himself with no place to live. "I was pretty close to death I would say," said Block. "I had no place to go. I don't know what month it was but they

(Camrose Open Door staff) made sure I survived until I could find a place to go." Carberry was recommended to Camrose Open Door by friends after losing her house to fire. "They gave me some really good emotional support and helped me work through everything that was happening in my life," said Carberry. "It has been an experience and a half for sure. You learn lots by coming here, more than

In loving memory of

Kenneth Rudolph Banack September 8, 1924 – May 19, 2013 Ken was born on September 8, 1924, the second son of the late Tom and Agnes Banack. Ken had three brothers Ludick, Lawrence and Dennis, and two sisters Irene and Bernice. Ken married Marie Delowski in Round Hill, AB on July 20, 1947. They raised four children Paulette (Gus) Forget of Medicine Hat, Doug Banack of Camrose, Dale Banack of St. Albert and Darren (Charlene) Banack of Two Hills. He had 11 wonderful grandchildren Mark (Eva), Maria (Barry), Simone (Paul), Andrea (Edward), Michelle, Jody, Matthew (Jennifer), Carla (Kelly), Jason, Brandy and Chantelle; 14 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. Ken was predeceased by his wife Marie; parents Tom and Agnes; brother Ludick; and his grandchild Mark. Ken had many talents. He enjoyed camping, fishing, crafts, puzzles, glass cutting, clock making and was passionate about keeping his property immaculately landscaped. He was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather, brother, uncle and friend to many. The family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the 9-1-1 operator, EMT responders and the Two Hills Hospital staff who cared for our father at this critical time. We would also like to thank Burgar Funeral Home for all the funeral arrangements. Thank you to Father Larry and all who assisted during the Mass, the Royal Canadian Legion for the lunch, and also to family, friends and neighbours for the flowers, food, kind thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. – The Children of Ken Banack

Debbie Mae (Annas) Virtue 1956 – 2013 It is with great sadness the family of Debbie Mae Virtue announces her sudden passing in Edmonton, AB on May 26, 2013 at the age of 56 years. Debbie was born in Hanna, AB on July 2, 1956, the eldest of four children born to Gus and Myrtle Annas. She attained her education in Hanna, then followed in her Mom’s footsteps and went to nursing school and attained her Licensed Practical Nurse Diploma in 1974. She spent 25 years of her nursing career working in St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose. She had a unique ability in working with all people and had a heartfelt camaraderie with those she encountered in life. She went out of her way to be helpful to others and wanted to make a difference in their lives. Debbie met Roy Virtue in 1998. Roy was the love of her life. Their favourite times were the times they spent together. They loved working in their yard, making it a peaceful oasis. Debbie often said the yard was a tranquil place and she loved being in it. She leaves to mourn her passing her loving husband Roy; her dad Gus; three children Chad, Rob and Kristina; brothers Randy (Lillian) and Ron; sister Diane (Ted); and numerous nieces, nephews aunts, uncles and cousins. Her mother Myrtle predeceased Debbie in 2001. A Service of Remembrance was held on May 31, 2013 at Redeemer Lutheran Church with Rev. Robert Grewe officiating.

For information on The Camrose Booster Obituary Page, contact your funeral director or The Camrose Booster you ever know from anyone telling you." Carberry and Taylor are thankful for the listening ear(s) the Camrose Open Door has provided. "They (Open Door staff) have just been here for us whenever we have needed them," said Carberry. "They don't judge us, no matter what we have done in the past. The only downfall is there are not enough outreach workers to support all of us."

Block and Carberry have made strong friendships since starting to work at the Open Door's Cafe Connections, in the Gateway Centre. "The people here are like my second family," said Block. "That is really the only way that I can put it." Carberry said the most important thing she has learned at the Open Door is not to doubt herself. "I have learned that with the support of the people here

you can handle almost anything that is thrown at you." Block said he has learned how to talk to people who are not his own age. "I was really timid I guess with older people but I have learned how to love and respect everyone in front of me." Block said there are many in the community who are still unaware of the issues that are facing youth. Continued on page 33

Gladys Batke

Lynn Storeshaw

Mrs. Gladys Batke of Camrose passed away on Saturday May 25, 2013 at the age of 88 years.  Gladys Mae Batke (nee Ross) was born at home to Percy and Edith Ross on June 10, 1924.  She attended Centennial School and Coal Valley School south of Rosalind, AB. After finishing school, she worked for some families in the district, as many young women did in those days. She told of how she and Elsie Forsyth helped pitch bundles on the threshing crew in the spring of 1942. The mice were so thick they had to tie up their pantlegs with twine. Needless to say, they got lots of teasing from the men on the crew for that! A year later, Gladys was working for Irvin and Irene Cox and went with them to visit the Owen Batke family. There she met her future husband, Oliver Batke. They were married on May 29, 1943. To this union, one son David was born in Camrose, and two daughters, Joy and Judy, were born at the homestead in Manning, AB. Gladys was a good cook, a loving wife and mom. In 1953, Gladys and Oliver were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses at Manning, AB and have been active in their faith since that time. This brought them comfort and a hope for the future. Gladys passed away on May 25, 2013 after a short illness. She leaves to mourn her husband Oliver; daughters Joy and Judy; brother Vernon Ross of Manning, AB; six grandsons Michael, Marc, Vincent and Brad Batke, Seann Jackson, and Corey Gerber; as well as seven great-grandchildren. She was loved and will be missed by all. Gladys was predeceased by a daughter Shirley Ann who died in infancy; and her son David in 1990. A funeral service was held on Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness. Interment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial contributions are gratefully acepted to a charity of one’s choice. To send condolences please visit

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Lynn Storeshaw of Duhamel on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at the age of 62 years.

Her strength, enthusiasm, positive attitude and large heart will be missed by all who knew her. The world, both human and canine, will never be the same. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. from Burgar Memorial Chapel (4817-51 Avenue, Camrose, AB) with Rev. Bonnie Arends officiating. Cremation has taken place.

Augustana has highest ever number of grads By Dan Jensen

The University of Alberta presented degrees to 160 of this year's 180 Augustana Campus graduates during a spring convocation ceremony in Camrose June 2. "This is the largest graduating class since our merger with the U of A," said Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger before the start of proceedings. "We have seen continuing growth in enrolment over the last few years and now that is playing out with larger and larger graduating classes." The convocation was special in another way, as well, as it featured the presentation of the Governor General's silver medal to Bachelor of Music degree recipient Elizabeth Carol Anne Clarke, from Fort McMurray, for being one the top three graduates in the University of Alberta. "This is the first time since the merger that Augustana has had a recipient of the Governor General's medal," said dean Berger. University of Alberta Chancellor Ralph B. Young said it is exciting to see young people getting the next point of their careers started. "You see some of the award winners today at Augustana. They are bright young people." University of Alberta board of governors representative Shenaz Jeraj told students during the convocation that they are graduating from an institution that is recognized as one of Canada's leading universities and that the board of governors is confident that the knowledge they have gained through hard work and dedication will serve them well

in the face of opportunities and challenges. "By completing your programs and studies, each of you has achieved a rare level of excellence which will be forever recognized in your university degree." Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development Minister Verlyn Olson told students they are leaving Augustana prepared to deal with ever-changing and unpredictable life experiences. "You have been taught by some of the best at a world class institution. You have been made conscious of the world around you in a way that is going to make you an asset to whatever community you choose to live in." Olson urged students to treat every day as a special gift. "Maximize every opportunity you have, stay resolute in the face of misfortune, and remember that no matter what changes come your way the lessons and friends you have gained here will help sustain you." University of Alberta president Indira Samarasekera encouraged graduates to be proud of their achievements. "This is a day for celebrating your success," said Samarasekera, "for reflecting on all that you learned, for acknowledging all those hours that you have spent in the classroom, the library or laboratory, for reviewing the experiences you have gained in the field." President Samarasekera challenged all the graduates to live a good life. "In our society we tend to equate a good life with an easy life," said Samarasekera. "A life of quickly achieved professional

success, personal enhancements and financial security. While it is my hope that you experience all these things, I want to turn this notion on its head. I want to suggest that a good life is not an easy life but an uneasy one. A good life makes you uncomfortable. It includes diversity, it presents you with difficulties that take all of your knowledge, ingenuity and energy to solve. It tests your fortitude and teaches you the value of failure." President Samarasekera told the graduates they should not underestimate themselves. "Today you have received a degree from the University of Alberta. If we have done our job well we have challenged you to work very hard, to stretch yourself intellectually and creatively. We have asked you to get out of your comfort zone and forced you to ask tough questions of yourself. Now I want you to go out to seize the opportunity, to build the new organizations, industries and institutions our society obviously needs. Your generation is much more equitable, open and tolerant than mine or your parents'. You can be the generation that comes up with the solutions we need to solve." President Samarasekera said throughout the history of the U of A graduates and degree recipients have been inspired by two fundamental values on which the University of Alberta is built: the pursuit of truth and the call to use knowledge for the uplifting of the whole people. "We need you to live a good life and I know you can and will."

University of Alberta Chancellor Ralph B. Young congratulates Elizabeth Carol Anne Clark, who received the Governor General's medal for being one of the U of A's top three graduates.

Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger presents a Bachelor of Arts degree to Lauren Marie Brookes, from Camrose.

Honorary degree presented to Sharon Butala By Dan Jensen

U of A president Indira Samarasekera leads graduates in a pledge to faithfully observe and loyally to maintain the statutes, customs, privileges and liberties of their university.

Sharon Butala speaks to Augustana grads.

The University of Alberta presented the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters to author Sharon Butala at Augustana's spring convocation June 2. Butala has shared her environmental and feminist insights into life on the Canadian prairies for the last 30 years. She has published 16 books, dozens of articles and essays, and five produced plays. Butala was nominated for the honorary degree by Augustana. "It was two members of our English faculty who brought forth the idea that Augustana ought to make this nomination," said Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger. "We had known Sharon from before because she was a visiting writer here on campus, and a guest in a number of our classes." Butala has won several literary and a few conservation awards, and been shortlisted for Canada's most important national literacy awards. Since the early 1990s dozens of masters' theses and doctoral dissertations have been written on her work at universities across North America."

relationship with the land and therefore, to preserving the land itself. "Her conjoined examinations of nature, human creativity, identity and spirituality – and her writing's location on the Canadian prairie – make her contributions to Canadian arts and letters original, important and enduring," said Augustana English professor Roxanne Harde.

Butala and her late husband, Peter Butala, donated a portion of their ranch to the Nature Conservancy of Canada in 1996. "She helped preserve forever one of the few remaining pieces of natural prairie grassland, untouched by the plough," said Augustana English professor and associate dean Harry Prest. "Now called the Old Man on His Back

Prairie and Heritage Conservation Area, their former ranch has become a preserve where several threatened species of wildlife can now flourish once more. It seems most fitting that, having shared her vision of this inspiring landscape with her readers for many years, she and Peter have found a way to share the landscape itself with all of us forever." Butala said she considers it a special honour to receive an honorary degree from a rural institution like Augustana. "To see the people coming in and to have some of the senators and people with rural backgrounds themselves, women in particular, speaking to me about my books, that is a thrill." Butala said it is very moving to hear people talk about how her books have spoken to them and their lives. Butala encouraged graduates to find and follow their inner drive. "Try not to let making a living or being a success overwhelm you, possess you entirely," she said, "but leave room for that creative urge that lives inside all of us and will express itself in myriad ways if we allow it. To stifle it completely is to stifle the soul."

Ford Edge

Style and technology together

By Dan Jensen

Style and technology come together in a bold new way in the 2013 Ford Edge at Lamb Ford Sales, Camrose. "Our customers are going to love it," said Lamb Ford Sales sales manager Brett Read. "It is definitely a vehicle that stands out above the crowd." Performance The 3.5 litre V6 produces 285 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 3.7 litre twin-independent variable cam timing V6 delivers 305 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, all on regular fuel. Both engines are teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission. The SelectShift automatic transmission is standard on the Edge SEL and Limited series. SelectShift gives the driver total control over gear selection and performance. Upshifts, for instance, are not commanded at redline, and downshifts are allowed at the lowest gear possible as defined by the engine. When a lower gear is selected while descending a long downhill grade, SelectShift will hold that gear until the driver manually upshifts, or returns to the fully automatic setting. A new 2.0 litre EcoBoost I-4 engine delivers 15 per cent fuel economy improvements over the 3.5 litre V6 when mated to a six-speed transmission. "The engine offers the performance feel of a sixcylinder," said Read. Driving experience Eighteen-inch tires, standard on the Edge SEL and Edge Limited, provide a more engaging steering feel. Twenty-inch tires are optional on Edge Limited, while Edge Sport has class-exclusive 22-inch wheels standard. Shocks, springs and the stabilizer bar have been adjusted to tighten handling. The shocks now feature a high-flow piston, which allows engineers to tune for both road loads and driving dynamics, without compromising ride for handling, or vice versa. The result is a

flatter response through turns and over hills, while still providing a comfortable ride. Brake related features include Hill Start Assist, which reduces rollback on hills, Trailer Sway Control, which provides greater towing stability when equipped for trailer tow, Hydraulic Brake Assist, which provides greater braking force in emergency stops, and Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support, which helps reduce speed and automatically pre-charges brakes and engages an electronic brake assist system to help drivers stop more quickly when the system detects a collision is imminent. Interior The Ford Edge SE is well equipped with clothtrimmed seats and single-zone manual air conditioning. The SEL gets unique cloth-trimmed seats, a six-way driver seat, and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control. MyFord Touch driver connect technology provides

a smarter, safer, simpler way to connect drivers with incar technologies and their digital lives. It replaces traditional vehicle buttons, knobs and gauges with clear, crisp LEC screens and five-way controls like those found on cell phones and MP3 playCraig Beddoes ers. Two 4.2-inch full-colour Lamb Ford Sales LCD screens flank an analogue speedometer and an eight-inch touch-screen LCD at the top of the centre stack. A five-way switch on each side of the steering wheel crossbar controls the information displayed on the corresponding instrument panel screens. The screens can be personalized to display information relevant to each individual driver using a simple button click, voice command or touch-screen tap. Safety The advanced Personal Safety System uses sophisticated sensors to optimize deployment of the dual-stage front airbags in certain frontal collisions. Front-seat side airbags deploy in certain side-impact collisions, while the Safety Canopy system increases protection with a rollover sensor and side-curtain airbags. Each standard sideview mirror features an integrated convex blind spot mirror that helps identify vehicles and objects nearby, so you can avoid them. So that you and your passengers can be easily located, the SOS Post-Crash Alert System will automatically flash the hazard lights and sound the horn after an airbag has deployed or a safety belt pretensioner has activated in certain collisions. Warranty The basic warranty on Ford Edge is three years or 60,000 km. The Powertrain Limited Warranty is five years or 100,000 km.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Griffin Loronz of OLMP School makes a jump of 8.73 metres in the Grade 7 boys' triple jump event at the divisional track meet on May 28. Tristan Hewitt of Bashaw, Griffin and Erik Pudlowski of Charlie Killam School placed in the top three. However, Eric went on to win the aggregate title in his age group. By Murray Green

Five of the six aggregate track and field junior high titles went to Charlie Killam School students at the divisional meet on May 28. CKS swept the girls' side. Kady Isnor was the top athlete in Grade 7, Megan Olsen received the most points in Grade 8 and Braxtyn Horbay earned the aggregate award in Grade 9. In Grade 7 boys', Erik Pudlowski of CKS was the winner, Grade 8 boys' top athlete was Tim McKay of CKS and Scott Kohlman of Bashaw spoiled the sweep by earning the most points in Grade 9. The CKS track athletes received 801 points and Our Lady of Mount Pleasant was next with 652 points. New Norway placed third with 391 points, Bashaw had 255, Bawlf recorded 234 and Rosalind earned 50 points.

"There are so many problems for youth in this town, considering how small it is compared to the other places I have been. I just wish everybody could come see and know everything that is going on with everybody." Carberry said it is important that older people try to understand the difficulties young people sometimes experience. "I advise them not to judge, because you know there is more to what is going on than they see. It is hard because older people and younger people don't really see eye to eye that much." Camrose Open Door executive director Randal Nickel said he appreciates seeing the smiling faces of Carberry and Block. "They may have had a hard day or weekend but they still have a warm greeting for me and the rest of the staff when we arrive every morning. I very much appreciate that."

Arts, City and university reps search for Performing Arts Centre theatre manager By Christopher Thrall

A Canada-wide search has been launched for a suitable candidate to run the new Performing Arts Centre (PAC) in Camrose. A committed team has already begun to review the applications – coming in from as far as Nova Scotia and as close as Camrose – with the intention to interview finalists by midJune. The new Theatre Manager will start in September and immediately begin preparations for programming in 2014. “We’re taking this search very seriously,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers, who, along with Augustana Dean Dr. Allen Berger, represents the new facility’s Management Council on the search committee. “The Manager for the new Performing Arts Centre has to be a leader who can promote events, forge partnerships with arts and community groups in the city, plus manage a budget and staff.” The position advertisement has run on websites such as Theatre Alberta, the Cultural Careers Council in Ontario, and the Alliance for Arts and Culture in Vancouver. “In addition to interviewing with the search committee, finalists will meet with members of the Camrose arts community,” says Dean Berger. “Their input on the new Theatre Manager will help ensure we make a good decision.” Besides the two members from the Management Council, the search committee includes representation from the City of Camrose, the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus, and the arts community. The president of the Bailey Theatre Society, Judy McLean, jumped at the opportunity to help select the right person. Her involvement guarantees – right from the start – the importance of a strong

collaborative relationship between PAC and the Bailey. “As we continue to grow arts and culture in Camrose,” says Ms. McLean, “I see a synergy between the historical Bailey Theatre, the Performing Arts Centre, local arts organizations, and Augustana’s music, drama, and visual art programs as key to building a vibrant and exciting cultural scene.” Other members of the search committee include Camrose Director of Community Services Paul Neilsen and Augustana Director of Development Bonnie Anderson. Nielsen indicated that he is seeking the best person to integrate into the cultural community as a whole. Anderson – a musician, former music educator and arts administrator – will help ensure that the committee hires someone who will successfully promote the venue and raise funds for programming and operations. The final member of the search committee is the professional theatre consultant who has been part of the project from the beginning. “A Theatre Manager represents the Performing Arts Centre to the public, the media and the performing arts industry at large,” says Richard Schick of Schick Shiner and Associates. Schick seeks a candidate who promises to establish effective working relationships with municipal and university officials, the media, artists, board members, other arts groups, sponsors, local schools, volunteers, and patrons. “We’re doing this search right,” says Mayor Chalmers. “Our expectations are high, so we’ve spread the widest possible net. I believe we are going to meet some quality applicants from across Canada who will have the vision we seek for the Performing Arts Centre as it begins to serve our community.”

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.

Really good crowd, excellent weather, and a terrific annual Jaywalkers’ activity for all age groups. As usual, Bowl For The Green, which is offered annually by Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre and The Camrose Booster, was the scene of thousands of bowling balls being lobbed, hurled and otherwise manoeuvred (often with a silent prayer) down the one hundred foot course. Over the course of two days, 104 individuals managed to make their “bowling ball” disappear through one of the four elusive holes at the end of the temporary bowling alley. But there could only be one grand prize winner of $1,000 (spendable at Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre or an advertiser or combination of advertisers from the Jaywalkers’ Jamboree Super Booster edition). Successful striker #88, Jason Selby of Camrose, rolled his ball for the decisive win in the first round of play-off action. Thanks to all who participated in the event. All money raised – $3,855 – was directed to Camrose Minor Hockey, the majority going to the female hockey program for the coming season.
