Ruby Carstairs and Freda Kushnerick have been inseparable and dedicated walking partners for the past 14 years! They particularly enjoy the peace, tranquility and beauty of the extensive 54 kilometre trail system in Camrose. (The City boasts 39 kilometres of paved or shale trails plus 15 kilometres of nature trails). In fact, the friends typically log at least 10 km per day, five days or more per week, year-round. Ruby began walking regularly in an effort to curb her asthmatic symptoms. This simple “cure” has been life-changing and almost like magic. Freda thrives in the fresh air and can’t imagine a more refreshing and enjoyable way to begin her day.

Friday, June 14th is Community Walk Day …an important component of Recreation and Parks Month. The City of Camrose, Camrose Healthy Lifestyle Coalition and Alberta Health Services invite you to Take on the Trails at 10 a.m. An organized Mirror Lake walk, beginning at the Bill Fowler Centre, offers relatively flat terrain. A more aggressive walk, which leaves from Stoney Creek Centre at the identical time, will allow you to experience the beauty of the valley. The walk will move indoors to the Recreation Centre walking track in the event of inclement weather. For more information contact Lucy Ernst at 780.679.2968 or Nadine MacMillan at 780.678.3416.

Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino has been awarded a 2013 Certificate of Excellence from the online travel site TripAdvisor. The certificate is presented to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travellers. Best Western Camrose Resort Casino has received an average of four and a half out of five stars from 47 reviewers since opening the hotel part of the operation in March of 2012. It is currently among the top performing ten per cent of TripAdvisor businesses world wide. Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino general manager Dawn Anderson said it is an honour for her entire team to be recognized with the TripAdvisor award. "Our team works very hard to uphold and maintain the high standards established by Best Western, and being recognized by TripAdvisor helps reinforce to the team that what they do on a daily basis has an impact on each guest's individual hotel experience. "From the maintenance and housekeeping teams to guest services and our culinary team, they all strive to provide each guest with a hotel stay experience that earns us many return and loyal guests." Reviewers commented on everything from the cleanliness of the rooms to the helpful staff. "The staff was friendly and our room was clean and very quiet during the night," said Bernie, from Vancouver Island. "The linens were nice and the bed allowed us to sleep comfortably. If in Camrose again we would definitely stay here and will tell friends about it." "We visited Camrose on route to Edmonton on April 30," said another guest. "What a great experience! Lovely well-equipped spacious rooms with make-up mirror and guest robes. Nice swimming pool with water slide plus a small, but well-equipped, fitness centre. We enjoyed the included quality hot breakfast and appreciated their helpful and friendly staff. We also enjoyed the attached casino." Two of the negative reviews were pulled off the TripAdvisor site because of false comments. "TripAdvisor conducted an investigation and found that nothing matched what they said," explained Anderson. "The guests who post comments have to leave their name and phone number and be willing to be contacted, and these people didn't do that." Anderson said she loves hearing the comments from exuberant guests who say how impressed they are with the facility and the staff. "When you work every day you tend to pick out the things that need to be worked on. These comments remind us of the great job that is being done by everyone who works here." Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino is confident going into its second year of operation that it can make the changes that will make it an even more popular destination for travellers. "We're going to build on what we have started with changes in our procedures and techniques and interior cosmetics, and will be working on exterior beautifications," said Anderson. Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino is expecting a busy summer with all the upcoming events, including the Big Valley Jamboree and the Tour of Alberta. "With the exception of three dates our ballrooms are booked every Saturday from now until the end of the year," said Anderson.

The Camrose Kodiaks teamed up with Camrose Chrysler, Norsemen Inn, Central Agencies and National Superstorage this past season on a Goals for Kids promotion. For every goal the Kodiaks scored, each business made a donation to a charity of its choice. With the team scoring 184 goals, the total amount received by the charities was $3,680. Camrose Chrysler chose to support Camrose and District Food Bank, which received a donation of $920. Presenting a cheque to NeighborAid director Jo-Anne Tweed at a Camrose Kodiaks playoff game was Camrose Chrysler dealer principal Mike Rodin. Camrose Kodiaks expressed appreciation to all the businesses who stepped up to the plate with the promotion and indicated it is something they will likely do again when the new season starts in the fall.

Tour of Alberta will put Camrose on world stage By Dan Jensen

Imagine 130 highly trained athletes racing on their sleek bikes towards a finish line at speeds of up to 60 km an hour. That will be the case here on Sept. 4 when Camrose hosts the stage one finish of the Tour of Alberta. "It's the newest pro cycling event on the international cycling circuit," said Tour of Alberta Camrose organizing committee chair Todd Markowsky in a presentation to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce membership June 5. Stage one will begin at Festival Place in Sherwood Park and make a quick visit to the city of Fort Saskatchewan. From there, racers will curl south to Ardrossan and the scenic lake district, where they skirt the edge of Miquelon Lake Provincial Park. They will arrive in Camrose at between 3 and 4 in the afternoon, depending on the route conditions

and the strategy that evolves that day. "They will be travelling a distance of 158 km, which is relatively short for these folks," said Markowsky. "It will take them about four hours." The racers will do three and a half laps of the city's downtown core, before finishing at the Rudy Swanson Recreational Park. The route will take them down main street, across 48 Avenue, past Augustana, west up the hill towards the recreation grounds and the new Rotary Centre, past the hospital and the Wildrose Co-op. "The City of Camrose and the police department and emergency services have been working diligently and are just incredibly supportive of this whole project," said Markowsky. "They have an incredible plan laid out for this." A Tour of Alberta festival area featuring vendors and lifestyle fitness opportunities will be

Seniors encouraged to apply for federal funding

Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson is inviting local seniors to apply for federal government funding through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). “We have been successful in the past and many local seniors in all parts of our large riding benefit," said Sorenson. "Prepare your ideas that will stimulate senior citizen participation and fill out the application. “This is an excellent opportunity for organizations that promote the well-being of seniors to take action." Applications should be submitted before July 5, 2013, at . Organizations may receive up to $25,000 in grant funding per year on projects that focus on one or more of the following objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. “We have many organizations dedicated to helping seniors maintain a high quality of life and continue to be active, participating members of our communities – let’s utilize the help available from our government,” said Sorenson. The Government of Canada provides more than $33 million to support 1,750 community-based projects for seniors across the country. Since its beginning, the NHSP has funded more than 12,200 projects in hundreds of communities across Canada. Organizations can receive funding towards projects that empower seniors to share their diverse skills, knowledge and experiences with others by volunteering and mentoring. These projects also help foster social participation and inclusion of seniors in communities across Canada.

held at the recreational grounds starting at noon. "We have a sponsorship team that has been approaching and will be approaching various people that want to be part of this festival opportunity at the finish area," said Markowsky. The Tour of Alberta will be televised by Rogers Sportsnet, which is one of the event's national sponsors. "The last two hours of this event will be broadcast live," said Markowsky. "That includes, if you have seen the Tour de France, the helicopter coverage. The helicopter will travel across rural Alberta, come into Camrose, be hovering over town doing long shots and wide shots. There will also be motorcycles with movie cameras that will be following the cyclists as they move through town." The cyclists will be accompanied by a large number of team directors, mechanics, marshals,

media, police and emergency services personnel that will make up what is known as a paleton. "This package will roll down the highway in a rolling road closure," said Markowsky. "It has been a monumental task and a really incredible task that started in the fall. Everything from the intersections being mapped to times of the train crossings. They are actualy at this point now working on train schedules, making sure that trains don't influence the race." The Tour of Alberta Camrose organizing committee was distributing cowbells at Jaywalkers' Jamboree which they are hoping spectators will clang when the cyclists pass them on Camrose streets. "We are encouraging and wanting to be alongside the road," said Markowsky. "The more noise you make the more bells you ring the more signs you have the more ridiculous costumes you have the

greater the chance that you could be on television." As the first pro cycling race of its kind to be held in Canada, the Tour of Alberta is expected to attract significant international attention and include top professional teams from around the world, including Tour de France competitors and world champions. "I can't say how pleased I am to be part of this event," said Markowsky. "If someone was to say to me, 'Listen Todd, I think we would like to get an event to Camrose, what do you think we should get?' I would say 'this is it'. This is my thing. I had an opportunity in 2010 to go to the Tour de France as a spectator. I rode the stages before the riders rode them. I have experienced the Tour de France festival. It is phenomenal and a piece of this is coming to Alberta. That we have an opportunity to be part of it is really an honour."

Strong finish

Bikers cross a finish line set up at the Camrose Regional Exhibition during the first leg of the 2013 Johnson MS Bike Tour June 8. The leg started at Leduc at 7:30 in the morning. MS Bike is the largest cycling series event in North America suitable for all fitness levels. Over 10,000 cyclists participate in 27 tours across Canada between June and September to raise money for MS research and programs.

Relay for Life returns to the CCHS grounds June 21 By Murray Green

The Relay for Life is returning to the Camrose Composite High School track where the event started 12 years ago. It will start on June 21 at 7 p.m. with the opening ceremonies and survivor lap and go until 7 a.m. on June 22. "Our goal is to have 15 teams and right now we have 12. We want to build it back up to the way it was when it first started," said team coach Janice Maier. "We want it to be fun again." It is not too late to enter a team, or as an individual. "We prefer that you register ahead of time, but you can register that night. It's never too late, or too early. In fact, you can register for next year already on the web site," said co-chair Christine Palmerchuk.

The organizing crew wants to put the fun back into raising money for cancer research. "We will have a DJ all night, activities and games, a kid's zone for families, a bounce structure for children, and a name that tune contest. We want to have a lot of things to do during the night to keep everyone awake," added Janice. About 45 survivors will be taking part in the opening ceremonies with a walk around the track. They will be followed by a caregiver lap. "We encourage all survivors to stay and be part of the relay. Each team in the Relay for Life will have a tent set up in the middle of the track area," said Janice. "We will have a late supper for all participants and a breakfast in the morning." The annual luminary cer-

emony with lighting of candles and the Hope sign will be held at 11 p.m. on the first night. "You pick up the luminaries at Scotiabank. Usually we put sand in the bag to keep them in place, but this year we are asking for Food Bank donations to be put in the bags," explained Janice. "After the relay the food will be donated to the Food Bank. You can donate at the bank as well. Luminaries will be on sale at the Relay for Life prior to the ceremony. You can make the luminaries more personal with a photocopy of a loved one or drawings." The morning will close with a final ceremony. "We want people to be motivated all year, so we get people pumped as they leave," said Christine. "The Coop gas bar and the Chamber office have I Fight Back cards

that are for sale to raise funds and they put them up on the wall." The Relay for Life organizers are hoping that the move back outdoors will be a positive move. "We've been to every relay and the atmosphere just wasn't the same the last few years when it was indoors," said Janice. "People ask what if it rains? Well if it rains it rains. What a cancer patient or survivor goes or went through doesn't compare to a little rain and getting wet." A tent in which to relax with coffee and heat will be set up to keep people warm. The Relay for Life welcomes spectators to come out and watch, or cheer people on. "This is the 75th anniversary of the Canadian Cancer Society, so major sponsors VIA Rail and Air Canada have come on

board. Teams that raise $7,500 or more are entered into a draw for flights up to 10 people to fly to any relay in North America," explained Janice. "Any individual raising $7,500, or more is entered for a trip for two on VIA Rail. Those are extra incentives." To enter a team, visit website, call Janice at 780-608-8343, or Christine at 780-679-7981. "If you register online it is $15 and at the event it will be $20," said Christine. "Food and refreshments will be provided, so it is a good bang for the buck," continued Janice. "However, the site is not that user-friendly. But, if you call us, we can walk you through it," said Janice. You can also contact the organizers to volunteer, or take part as a survivor. The other Relay for Life co-chair is Charleen Marko.

The Camrose area has featured strong public school band programs for many years, resulting in various awards, distinctions, and recognition for its long-time directors. This year is no exception. At the upper elementary and junior high level, the Charlie Killam School bands, and Camrose Grade 5/6 Beginner Band, under the direction of Bob Bailey, again achieved the highest awards at the annual provincial Festival of Bands in Red Deer. As "Superior Award" status has been assessed to these bands quite regularly over the years at this festival, we can be sure that these public school students are receiving an excellent music education and are involved in fine music-making endeavours. Mr. Bailey entered four bands all together in the Alberta Band Association's Festival of Bands this May: the Charlie Killam Grade 9 Concert Band, the Charlie Killam Grade 8 Concert band, and the Charlie Killam Grade 7 Concert Band. The Camrose Grades 5/6 Beginning Band was entered as well, direct-

ed by Bob Bailey and assisted by Tom Spila and Norm Skretting. All these ensembles are to be commended, achieving high marks by all adjudicators. The Grade 9 Concert Band, Grade 8 Concert Band, and Grades 5/6 Beginner Band all received Superior Awards, while the Grade 7 Concert Band received an "Excellent Plus" (having received overall Superior ratings from 2 of the 4 adjudicators, and "Excellent" from the remaining 2). A Superior Award is the highest honour given at the Festival and reserved for those few bands who perform far beyond expectations for their level, as adjudicated by highly ranked band educators and professionals from universities in the USA and Canada. The ABA Festival of Bands is an annual Festival that is heavily attended by bands throughout Alberta, and draws bands also from B.C., Saskatchewan, and northern USA. The Camrose Grades 5/6 Beginner Band, established by Mr. Bailey many years ago, is an initiative that has proven to be an enjoyable and rewarding one for the students as well as

ertoire for the group in their own band classes with their individual teachers, then come together for polishing and fine tuning in extra-curricular rehearsals after school – through sectionals with the three conductors and massed band rehearsals under the baton of Mr. Bailey. A strong start in music making is crucial for the music development of a student, as it paves the way for quality play-

ing and excellent musicianship at high school and university levels. The Battle River School Division #31 continues to give wonderful support to its music programs at both the junior high and high school levels, and the students and their parents are reaping the rewards. We are grateful to the Battle River School Division for its foresight in these economically difficult times in education.

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

Will a second set of eyes help? The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will spend some $16 million within the next few years to add about 30 persons to form inspection verification teams. They will be a “second set of eyes” watching front line staff at food establishments.. Why? To “check on food safety controls and the work of its own staff at federal establishments.” This decision, made last week, follows the findings of several investigations into conditions that led to the month-long shutdown of XL Foods in Brooks in September, 2012, and its eventual transfer of ownership to JBS Food Canada, a division of JBS South America. To protect the health of the cattle industry in Canada, there is surely a need to have consumer confidence in the safety of the products it sells. When US food inspectors found E. coli bacteria in a shipment from XL Foods in Brooks, it caused great turmoil far beyond the geographic area of Brooks in Alberta. Repercussions included: – 18 Canadians becoming sick from a potentially deadly strain of E. coli linked to XL Foods products; – the closure of U.S. borders to beef from the XL plant; – the shutdown of the plant leaving 2,200 unemployed; – the recall of more than 2,000 XL meat products across Canada and more than 30 states in U.S.A.; – the destruction of millions of kilograms of beef; – stress on the ranchers who supply the 4,000 head per day to the processing plant; – and financial woes in the community dependent on the economic activity created by the XL plant located there. Extremely disturbing was investigators’ reports revealing that Canadian Food Inspection Agency staff was lax in its monitoring of food safety controls in the XL plant, as were plant officials on two previous occasions when spikes in the potentially fatal bacteria went unnoticed. However, Freedom of Information documents did show that CFIA had warned XL Foods management about plant conditions six times before the E. coli outbreak – but XL took no action. Will more CFIA inspectors (another set of eyes) assure that Canadian meat is always safe to eat? That is a good question. It will not make a difference if the thirty extra persons to form “inspection verification teams” are also lax – just as were the inspectors prior to the recall and shutdown are alleged to have been. Consumer confidence in public sector scrutiny is not achieved by rules and regulations; confidence has to be earned by both inspectors and plant officials who are trusted to be consistent and diligent in observing all food safety procedures at all times. Trust is the operative word; will a further investment of $16 million in the next few years and the addition of inspection verification teams create greater trust? As author Robert Fulghum might say: Maybe, maybe not!

Sorenson stigmatizing mental illness by playing politics

By playing politics with mental illness, MP Kevin Sorenson and the Conservative Party are not only stigmatizing those living with mental health issues, they are making our streets less safe. First, some context. Our justice system provides a third option for those who, at the time of the act, were too sick to understand what they did was wrong – people who are deemed “not criminally responsible.” These individuals are incarcerated in a secure facility with psychiatric services. Before they can rejoin society their case is considered by a special board that is better equipped than a regular court to determine their treatment and the level of danger they pose. The Conservatives are trying to mislead the public into thinking this system is broken.

In fact, the government’s own research shows that its success rate is high – offenders have drastically lower rates of reoffending than in mainstream correction systems. Yet under the Conservatives’ Bill C-54, one serious offence would brand someone as liable to repeat-offend or present a greater risk to society – based on no evidence and going against decades of science and myth busting about mental illness. This will force them into mainstream prison, from which they will almost certainly emerge far more dangerous and likely to re-offend. The Conservatives argue that Bill C-54 is about the rights of victims. If these changes were only about advancing the rights of victims, the Liberal Party would support them. But Bill C-54 goes well beyond that and stigmatizes the mentally ill, and offends basic Charter protections that will ultimately weaken the rights of every Canadian. We simply cannot support that. This damaging stigma will make it harder to get people into treatment – yet treatment is the most effective preventive measure for the few people with mental illness who commit serious offences. By voting for C-54, Mr. Sorenson is playing on the politics of fear to perpetuate myths and stereotypes about mental illness. That is wrong – and will make us less safe. Bob Rae, MP Liberal Party of Canada

Prayer breakfast

More than prayers were said at Mayor Chalmers’ Prayer Breakfast on May 15. It was a fascinating political event. Chalmers collected praise from his peers at all levels of government. Business and professional people who supported him or who needed him were in attendance. Working class people, who need all of the above, were there. We paid $20 a plate. And every seat was taken. Lingering doubts about Chalmers’ political machismo evaporated as extra tables and chairs were brought in to accommodate the paying attendees. Potential applicants for Chalmers’ job were thus given their notice. It was, look for any other job in October, but not Mayor Chalmers’ job, it’s taken. Noticeably absent from this high profile event, were the Battle River School Board trustees. Board chair Bowie and his retinue were nowhere in sight (I may have missed one). They apparently got their notice “loud and clear” from their own electorate; namely, that most of us in attendance were parents, grandparents or teachers of their students. And the trustees’ presence would rekindle the hard feelings that their ‘no-zero’ policies had stirred up. That would detract from the Mayor's event. The breakfast rightfully belonged to the Mayor, no doubt about that. Leo Regehr, Camrose

Grateful Grannies Stride to turn Tide

$ S AV I N G S E V E N T J U N E 3 - J U N E 3 0, 2 0 1 3


This Fathers’ Day, join the local chapter of Grandmothers to Grandmothers as they participate in the fourth annual Stride to Turn the Tide National Walk. Stride to Turn the Tide began when a group of Canadian grandmothers from the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign decided to organize walks to show their support for the courageous grandmothers of Africa, who have stepped in to raise orphaned grandchildren. The walk has become an annual event that is intended to show to the African grandmothers that we will raise as much money as possible to help support them, to show solidarity with them and to raise awareness within our own communities. This walk comes at an opportune time – there are many projects in sub-Sahara, which support grandmothers and children in their care that are struggling to reach more families. The economic crisis in North America has created hardship for many projects as donors pull out or reduce contributions. It is a critical time for the AIDS pandemic in Africa. The Stride to Turn the Tide Walk is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness and to raise funds that are urgently needed. Contributions may be made on line at stride or through pledge sheets. Pledge sheets may be obtained by phoning Signe at 780-679-2254. The Grateful Grannies Stride to Turn the Tide Walk will take place on Sunday, June 16 at 2 p.m., in Jubilee Park. Registration will begin at 1:45 p.m. at one of the pavilions (watch for our banner). Following the walk there will be a social time with refreshments and games. Please come and join us!

Foliar Micro-nutrients offer Application and Production Benefits Soil fertility is like a bank account: you can’t expect to keep successfully withdrawing unless you occasionally top it up. While farmers have long been used to applying macro-nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus, today’s successful producers also carefully manage their crop’s micro-nutrient requirements, such as boron, copper and zinc. If your crop is short one or more micro-nutrient, consider solving the problem with a convenient, effective and relatively inexpensive in-crop solution: foliar micronutrient application. “While in the past there hasn’t been a lot of micro-nutrient application except in irrigated lands, there is a lot more demand on our soil now. Where a micronutrient might have been marginally okay when we grew 35 or 40 bushels of wheat, now that we’re up to 60 and 70 bushels, we’ve gone from marginal to really deficient,” says Doug Penney, a senior coach with Agri-Trend Agrology Ltd.“ In cases where micro-nutrients are required, the cost of putting them on is more than covered by increased yield.”

The leaves of crops deficient in certain micro-nutrients, including copper, manganese and zinc, often appear pale because the plants are not able to produce enough chlorophyll. Unfortunately, not all symptoms are obvious: for example, severe copper deficiency results in sterile pollen. “Producers should definitely be testing for micro-nutrient deficiency. Applying foliar micro-nutrients to correct any identified problems can be a very good solution. Fortunately, crops require micro-nutrients in much smaller amounts than they do for the macro-nutrients, so draw down is slower,” he adds. While many producers opt to broadcast or band their micro-nutrients at or before seeding, most micro-nutrients can be tank mixed with pesticides and foliar applied. Given the busyness of spring seeding, especially in a late spring like this year, delaying micro-nutrient application until into the growing season can be a major convenience. That said, the timing for a micro-nutrient application may not always coincide with

a required pesticide application, and the compatibility of the products should always be checked. Foliar application provides readily and immediately available micro-nutrients directly to growing plants, precisely when the plant requires that nutrient. In some cases, more than one application may be required. “Because most micro-nutrients are relatively immobile in the soil, the method of application is important. For example, copper is most effective when broadcast and thoroughly mixed into the topsoil. But, with the shift to zero-tillage, this is often not an option. If placed in a shallow band or seed-placed, copper may not be available when the crop needs it if the soil is dry. Therefore, foliar application at the early flag leaf stage is a good option,” says Penney. Finally, foliar application can save you money, as the minimized wastage and dilution means foliar micro-nutrients can be applied at a far lesser rate than would be needed in the soil.

Police win marathon Submitted

Four members of the Camrose Police Service ran in the 2013 Fallen Four Memorial Relay Marathon on June 3. This is the third year that a local team has run in this event, which is a marathon run of 43 kilometres split into four legs along Highway 43 between Mayerthorpe and Whitecourt. The race is organized to benefit the Fallen Four Memorial Society and this event is to honour the sacrifice made by the fallen RCMP officers who passed away on March 3, 2005, near Mayerthorpe. In the first two years, Camrose finished in second place in the four-person relay category. This year, out of the 119 relay teams, Camrose was able to capture first place with a run time of 3:09:34.

The Camrose Kodiaks teamed up with Camrose Chrysler, Norsemen Inn, Central Agencies and National Superstorage this past season on a Goals for Kids promotion. For every goal the Kodiaks scored, each business made a donation to a charity of its choice. With the team scoring 184 goals, the total amount received by the charities was $3,680. Norsemen Inn chose to support Camrose Open Door Association, which received a donation of $920. Presenting a cheque to Camrose Open Door Association executive director Randall Nickel at a Camrose Kodiaks playoff game on behalf of the Norsemen Inn was Camrose Kodiaks representative Amanda Olson. Camrose Kodiaks expressed appreciation to all the businesses who stepped up to the plate with the promotion and indicated it is something they will likely do again when the new season starts in the fall.

Instead of a run-of-the-mill item pulled off a store shelf, a personalized gift can feature a name, date or sentiment right on the gift itself. Think about giving Dad a personalized plaque that designates his work area in the garage or a pocket lighter or photo frame engraved with a special message or his name. An embroidered bath robe, or a golf

bag embroidered with his initials may also be a special treat. Fit for foodies

As the adage goes, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Take advantage of these words of wisdom by gifting your Dad with food or culinarythemed items. Dad may be an amateur chef and will enjoy a cookbook by his favorite personality. Or he may have a restaurant he insists on going to all the time, so guaranteeing a gift card to said restaurant will be a hit. If dad appreciates not only the taste, but also the culture of food, plan a tour of food shops in the area or go on a wine- and cheesetasting adventure. Gear heads

Some dads get revved up about automotive gifts, especially if they spend the weekends pampering their prized cars or trucks. If he tends to have a wrench in hand and head under the hood, treat your father to some new supplies for his automotive pursuits. Quality car waxes and upholstery cleaners are always in demand. Or give him a gift certificate to his favorite hand-wash, auto-detailing centre. Gas station gift cards or a new ratchet set are other good auto gift ideas.

How men can make more time for family When analyzing the role of men in the household, it's clear that those roles have changed over the years. Data reveals that in 2011 men were spending far more time performing household duties than they were in 1965. Men spent 10 hours per week on chores in 2011, which is more than double the amount of time (four hours) they devoted to household duties in 1965. Despite that more active role at home, many men still feel they are not spending enough time with their children. According to one survey which examined more than 2,500 adults, found that 46 percent of fathers felt they weren't spending as much time as they wanted to with their kids. Professional commitments keep many men from spending ample time with their kids, and while it many not be realistic for most fathers to walk away from their careers, there are steps men can take to make more time for their families. * Don't overextend yourself at the office. Much is made of how today's youngsters have more hectic schedules than those of yesteryear. But it's not just kids who are overextending themselves.

Leave the office at a set time every day. The demands of a successful career can be significant, and many fathers admit to sacrificing family time for the sake of their careers.

Fathers who can't say no at the office might be legends in the boardroom, but that willingness to take on extra work could be cutting into the time they spend with their families. Learn to delegate more at the office, taking on only what you can handle in a normal day's work. Taking on too many responsibilities can significantly cut into the time you have available for family. * Turn off the television. After a long day at the office, it can be tempting to come home and unwind in front of the television. But you might be spending more time in front of the tube than you think, and that time on the couch is valuable time that could be spent connecting with your family. In its 2011 Time Use Survey, the Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that individuals age 15 and over spent more than half

of their leisure time watching television. While bonding over a favorite movie or television show can bring families closer together, keeping the television on as background noise during dinner or other times of the day can make it harder for families to connect and share meaningful conversation. Turn the television off when eating dinner and work to reduce the time you and your family spend in front of the TV. * Leave the office at a set time every day. The demands of a successful career can be significant, and many fathers admit to sacrificing family time for the sake of their careers. But it's possible to have a successful career and still spend more time with your family. One trick is to leave your office at a reasonable time every day, regardless of work demands. Making it home for family

dinners each night can have a profound impact on your children. A survey from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse found that the more children have dinners with their parents, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs. Men who want to spend more time with their families should make it a priority to leave their jobs at a set time each day, regardless of their workload. Technology has made it possible to stay connected to your work even when you aren't in the office, so you can always get things done at home after dinner with your family while the kids are doing their homework. * Stop working on weekends. Men who travel often for business or those who simply cannot get away from the office on week nights should reserve their weekends for time with the family. Don't take your work home with you on the weekend and don't check your email until you go back to work on Monday. Workrelated distractions, such as checking your email on your smartphone, can take away from the time you have with your family.

Family expectations By John Hoffman From The Father Toolkit

There is a gap between family expectations and reality. Before the birth, many fathers' perceptions are influenced by positive images nurtured by the social images of the 'new' father. These images can dissipate rapidly over the two years following birth, as some fathers fail to survive the difficulties of a new parent's reality. The difference between the expected role of the father based on ideal and deeply ingrained attitudes is the source of many marital breakups. Attitudes of parenting roles may also be influenced by social stereotyping of gender roles – in general, many females are socialized to be nurturing, cooperative, passive, dependent, etc., while many males are socialized to be competitive, aggressive, independent, self reliant, etc. If both parents strictly adhere to these roles, parenting can be very one-sided. In addition, the role of female is not only the societal definition of a parent, but has a wider range of traits associated with it. The father, on the other hand, is seen by society as the secondary parent and has a much narrower selection of traits to choose from. With the many challenges that exist, any program/ service developed should assist men to overcome challenges with taking on the role of father.

Local groups host Father's Day Fun Fest Submitted

What more could dad want on Fathers’ Day than good food that he doesn’t have to cook, and lots of fun games and activities to enjoy with family. That’s the recipe for the success of the annual Fathers’ Day Fun Fest, hosted by the Camrose Boys and Girls Club and Family Violence Action Society in partnership with Camrose Police Services. Now marking its fifth year, this celebration of fathers and families is open to the whole community on Sunday, June 16, from noon to 3 p.m., at the Camrose Community Centre

and Rudy Swanson Park. This event offers barbecued burgers, hot dogs, watermelon and lots of ways to enjoy spending time together. Guests are invited to tour a police car and visit with crime prevention officer, Const. Matthew Wilton. For those who like to test their throwing arm a pie-throwing booth will feature Lucas Banack as the target. There is no admission charge, but donations are welcomed in support of the Family Violence Action Society. Guests making a donation will be entered into the grand prize draw for a remote control truck. Weather permitting, the event will be outdoors,

but will move indoors if necessary. “Building strong family relationships starts with spending time together and making good memories,” said Sheralyn Dobos, planning committee member. “Father’s Day is a great reminder for families to play, laugh and strengthen family bonds.” This event is made possible by a variety of community businesses. For more information on the Father’s Day Fun Fest, call the Family Violence Action Society at 780-672-0141 or the Boys and Girls Club at -780672-8004.

BRCF to recognize Gurrs as community builders By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Community Foundation will pay tribute to Kevin and Allyson Gurr at its annual Camrose Community Builders' Dinner Friday, Oct. 26. The Gurrs have contributed to the betterment of Camrose and area through monetary donations and involvement in boards and organizations since they moved here in 1986. "We fell in love with the community right away," said Kevin, who is the owner of the Camrose Boston Pizza franchise. "We saw that it was going to be a wonderful place to raise our kids and decided that, whether or not our business grew or changed or

developed differently, we were going to stay in Camrose no matter what." Kevin helped bring national attention to Camrose as chair of the committee that organized what was described as the most successful RBC Cup hockey championship ever. He was also involved with the World Jr. A hockey tournament in 2008 as co-chair, the Alberta Summer Games in 2002 and the Alberta Winter Games in 1990. Money raised from the Community Builders event will be added to the endowment fund the Gurrs established with the Battle River Community Foundation in

2003 to support those with special needs. "To have the opportunity to raise money for our fund on a night like this is pretty exciting," said Kevin. "We're looking forward to having some fun, getting some friends together and having a great time. It will allow us to grow our fund a little bit and hopefully make some significant contributions in the future." Kevin said he has great respect for the founders of the Battle River Community Foundation and the effect its presence is having on the entire Battle River area. "It took me a while to wrap my head around the importance of this and get to know a little bit more about

how it worked. I am impressed with the fact that, typically, the Foundation is returning close to a quarter million dollars a year to the community it serves. There aren't that many organizations that have the ability to give that much back. For a community of our size to have a foundation like this is quite unique and something of which we should be proud." The Battle River Community Foundation created the Community Builders' dinner to honour and celebrate local heroes who have given elbow grease, time and commitment, and shown leadership in making their community a better place. Joe and Phyllis Voytechek were honoured at the

first dinner in 2004, followed by Bill and Berdie Fowler in 2005, Red and Fran Elliott in 2006, Arlene and Alver Person in 2007, Bitz O'Riordan in 2008, Bernie and Jeanette Boser in 2009, Dave and Gail Stolee in 2010, Norman and Betty Mayer in 2011, and Alan and Valerie Fielding in 2012. "We honour our community builders at this event with a few accolades but mostly with some good natured ribbing at their expense," said BRCF board member Clarence Mastel. Tickets for the Battle River Community Foundation Community Builders' Dinner may be purchased later this summer from any member of the Foundation board.

BRCF delivered $229,934 to worthwhile community building projects in 2012 By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Community Foundation delivered $229,934 in 2012 to worthwhile community projects throughout the geographic area it serves. The foundation has now granted $1,695,956 to projects since its inception sixteen years ago. "With your encouragement and support, the Battle River Community Foundation is becoming a strong influence for the good of Camrose and communities in the Battle River area," said BRCF board chair Blain Fowler at the foundation's annual open house June 5. "Through the generosity of the community, including all of you in this room, it is quite possible that we will pass the $2 million mark in grants in our next cycle." The Battle River Community Foundation makes decisions on grant recipients based on recommendations from a grants committee. Applications are evaluated on the overall benefit of the project to the community, the number of people in the community who will benefit, the longevity of the benefit to the community, the probability of success of the project, and several other factors, including the strength of the volunteer board of directors. "I have been a director with the BRCF for eight years and I personally have to admit that reviewing the applications is a learning experience," said grants committee chair James Mayer. "There are many needs in our community that I did not know even existed and the need is not reducing. The ability of BRCF to grant is based on earnings on investments and flow-through donations. Generous support Battle River Community Foundation received support from 608 donors in 2012 who provided funding in the amount of $689,978. The foundation currently has 240 named endowment funds, many of which honour individuals whose personal philosophy matches the foundation's belief in importance of strengthening the communities it serves. "It is gratifying to know that we are on people's minds and that they chose to support the causes they care about most, through the Battle River Community Foundation," said Fowler. Battle River Community Foundation assets at the end of December, 2012, totalled $7,435,301. "This leaves us a bit short of where we would like to be in our march to reaching our goal of having $10 million in the pot by the end of 2014," said Fowler. "However, with a bit of help from the markets, we remain confident that we will meet our objective." Strong influence Fowler said with the encouragement and support it has received, the Battle River Community Foundation is becoming a strong influence for the good of Camrose and communities in the Battle River area. "We, on the foundation board, share the view that the greater the trust people place in us the greater our duty to honour that trust. We take that responsibility very seriously. As a team we are proud to play a role in supporting causes and projects that make the communities of Battle River better places in which to live and raise our families." The Battle River Community Foundation serves an area that stretches from Camrose west to Gwynne, south to Bashaw and Alliance, east to Hughenden and north to Highway 14.

The concert capped a successful year for the band, which has won the Camrose and District Music Festival Rose Bowl and best community music awards, and obtained a gold rating at the Edmonton International Band Festival.

Health Canada has proclaimed June as ALS Awareness Month The ALS Society of Alberta is celebrating Health Canada proclaiming June as ALS Awareness Month. Albertans who are diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) can feel marginalized, as the disease is still relatively unknown amongst the general population. There is currently no known cause or cure for ALS. Commencing in the month of June, and continuing into September, the ALS Society of Alberta will host and support various fund-raising campaigns, events and public awareness initiatives. These different initiatives will help Albertans understand what ALS is, and will rally to support those people and their families affected by ALS. There are 11 Walks for ALS across the province of Alberta, held in Camrose, Cold

Lake, DeBolt, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Hinton, Lethbridge, Peace River, Red Deer, Spruce Grove, and Vegreville, as well as Betty’s Run for ALS in Calgary and Charitee Golf Tournament. These events are crucial in raising much needed funds to support the work of the ALS Society of Alberta. Lindsay Schalin, resource development and communications manager, stresses how important the various WALKS for ALS and Betty’s Run are to Albertans living with ALS. “These events are organized by volunteers who are, or have been affected by ALS. In 2012, we provided support to 286 Albertans and their families – proclaiming June as ALS Awareness Month helps to bring to light this horrible disease and how it affects not just individuals, but entire families.”

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease is a debilitating, always fatal disease that causes degeneration of a select group of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in the inability to walk, talk, and eventually breathe. ALS affects 3,000 Canadians and their families and each day two to three Canadians will die of the disease. The ALS Society of Alberta tries to make each day the best day possible for people living with and affected by ALS. “As Minister of Health, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize those Canadians living with ALS, and to commend the health care professionals, family and friends who support and care for them,” said,Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health Canada.

Chamber of Commerce receives Academy of Curling update By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Academy of Curling will begin its first year of programming in 2014. "We had been trying to get this started in 2013 but just didn't have enough time," said Ken Duggan, one of the principals engaged in the development of the academy, in a presentation to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce June 4. "We have a lot of work to do in terms of developing the curriculum." The Camrose Academy of Curling (CAC) will be recruiting, developing and training instructors from October to December of this year. Student recruitment is expected to take place from January to March of 2014. "We are going to have a series of workshops this winter (for students) to enhance their curling skills," said Duggan. CAC hopes to start with 70 students spread across the junior

high, high school and university (Augustana) levels. The hope is that the academy will revive interest in the sport, which has been lagging for a few years, and eventually attract students from other countries. "The fifty members of the World Curling Federation are very interested in bringing along curlers," explained Duggan. "Even if these students don't speak English we have different programs at the university that could help them while they are at the academy." The idea of the Camrose Academy of Curling, similar to the several different hockey school programs, was proposed by the Rose City Curling Club as a suitable use for the legacy funds received from the major curling events that it has hosted over the last few years, including the Continental Cup in 2008, the Alberta Scotties in 2011 and the Boston

Pizza provincial men's championships in 2012. "We didn't want to put the legacy money into the operating accounts because pretty soon it is frittered away and you wonder what has happened to it," said Duggan. The Camrose Academy of Curling Society, which was formed in the fall of 2012 with the goal of helping young curlers reach their maximum potential, has received the support of the City of Camrose, Battle River School Division and the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta. Battle River School Division superintendent of schools Dr. Larry Payne said last summer that the BRSD is excited about the possibilities the curling academy can present. "There is potential to generate new opportunities for existing students and even attract additional students into our schools." The Camrose Academy of

Curling received a major boost two weeks ago when the Northern Alberta Curling Championships Society, which has funds from the Brier and world curling championships, agreed to provide funding and resources for the academy pilot. "They will also provide funding to help us attract high profile curlers and market these programs to other schools and school divisions," said Duggan. Charlie Killam School viceprincipal and Camrose Academy of Curling board member, Shane Gau, sees the academy as a wonderful opportunity for students. "We have a great opportunity to turn kids onto learning and tie something they enjoy doing into the curriculum," said Gau. "We see a lot of partnerships happening between our school, the high school and Augustana. We started a hockey faculty program

a few years ago in our school and we used the Augustana hockey team to mentor our students on the ice. There is a lot of leadership developed for the mentors and there is a lot of learning for the students." Two of the instructors who have already been recruited for the academy are Adam and Stephanie Enright, both world class curlers in their own right. Stephanie Enright went to provincials a couple of years ago, while Adam Enright was an alternate on the Kevin Martin rink which won gold at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers has indicated the Camrose Academy of Curling is a great initiative that will strengthen curling at the local, provincial and national levels, and that the City of Camrose will have a role to play in its establishment and success.

KERAY and LINDA MYER of Camrose, AB Wednesday, June 26, 2013 – 4:00 p.m. for

The professionals at Farm Credit Canada (FCC) changed from formal work attire to jeans and t-shirts June 4 to assist Habitat for Humanity Camrose with its newest home build. Showing up at the building site (5323-46 Street) in the morning, they eagerly went to work painting doors, baseboards and trims and looking after areas that needed to be cleaned. "It is a feel good thing for everyone involved with our organization," said FCC manager of business development John Olson. "It is fun to give back to the community and help." This is the second year in a row that the staff at Farm Credit Corporation has assisted with the Habitat for Humanity build and it won't be the last. "We see it as a team building opportunity and a way to do something useful for the community," said Olson. "We're not just going fishing together or paintballing." The homes (duplexes) are the 23rd and 24th that Habitat for Humanity Camrose has built over its 24 years in Camrose. "Both of them have 900 square feet on the main floor as well as finished basements," said Habitat for Humanity Camrose executive director Cody McCarroll. "They are decent, simple and affordable without a lot of extras." FCC is one of several Camrose companies that have joined hands on the Habitat building project with organizations, individuals and tradespeople. Volunteers from the Knights of Columbus organization were generous enough to assist with the placement of the siding. "It is becoming a trend in Canada that more and more large groups are getting involved with the builds," said McCarroll. "A lot of businesses are finding that it fits their corporate philosophy of giving back. We appreciate the help because we couldn't do it without them." Habitat's philosophy is to end the cycle of poverty housing by providing a hand up rather than a hand out. Families that are chosen to become home owners after a careful interview and selection process must provide 500 hours of sweat equity as their down payment. Habitat hopes to present the keys to the new duplexes to the homeowners at the end of June.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER June 11, 2013

Eve Marjorie Anderson Eve Marjorie Anderson, 87, entered into eternal peace on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose, Alberta. Eve was born on July 9, 1925, one of twin daughters, born to William and Coralie McCallum of Westlock, Alberta. Eve grew up on the family farm with brothers William, Richard, Donald and her sister Nevada. At a young age, she knew that she loved learning, and had a talent for teaching others. She left her home and went to Edmonton where she completed her high school and continued her education to become a teacher. Her first teaching position was in the small town of Tomahawk and, from there, she moved at age 23 to teach in the community of New Norway, Alberta. Here she met a young Norwegian man named Alf Anderson and in 1953, they were married. They moved to Camrose where Alf was involved in the construction businesses, and Eve taught until her retirement in 1981. She loved teaching and spent most of her career in teaching grade one. She instilled in her students a love of reading, the desire to succeed, and the knowledge that they could create a better world. Eve was an active community member involved in bowling, golf, the ATA and her husband’s favourite benevolent organization, the Son’s of Norway. She was an excellent cook, showing off her skill in making lefse, flatbread and Norwegian goodies. She was a member of the Sons of Norway Drill Team, and has passed her cherished traditional bunad down to her daughter Wendy. She also took great pride in her Scottish heritage. Eve loved the McCallum and Alberta tartans, bagpipes and sharing time with her family.  She played her annual summer game of golf with her brothers, and went to the Westlock parade with her sisters. With each member of her family and with each friend, she shared a unique bond, something special. She was an avid walker, golfer, loved flowers, carving, reading and music. Eve was a wonderful mom, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved to spend time with her immediate family, extended family and was a very good friend and neighbour. She was always willing to lend a hand, wherever it was needed. She was an active member of the Retired Teacher’s Association. At age 83, she was a member of a team who entered a community bed race and pulled a cart to the finish line. She volunteered in many capacities for many community causes. To her daughter and grandchildren, she was a role model, a mentor and a friend. She was there at every play, tea, art show, dance recital, soccer game and school team tournament. She was at every special event in their lives. Eve enjoyed travelling, and she managed to travel to most countries of the world, sometimes more than once. She taught her family that the world is a fascinating place, and encouraged them to travel and become good global citizens. At  age 85, she and Wendy travelled to Japan, “the best trip of Eve’s life”, and in December of 2012, she realized one of her lifelong wishes of spending Christmas in Banff with her daughter, her grandchildren and her great-grandchild Sheppard.  Eve was predeceased by her oldest brother, William who died in WWII; her beloved husband of 43 years, Alf Anderson; two brothers-in-law Radar and Henry Anderson; sister-in-law Bergit Anderson; and one niece Kelsi Stout. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Wendy Pasiuk; grandchildren Morgan Pasiuk and Jordan (Lindsay) Pasiuk; great-grandchild Sheppard Pasiuk; brothers Richard (Freida) McCallum and family, Don (Doreen) McCallum and family, sister Nevada Stout and family; brother-in-law Ken Anderson; sister-in-law Ardis Anderson and family; and family of Henry Anderson. Eve will be remembered by her friends and family as a gracious and intelligent lady with a great sense of humour. She valued kindness, honesty and fair play. It is with love and gratitude that we say farewell. Funeral Services were held on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 1:00 p.m., from Burgar Memorial Chapel with Rev. Bill Harder officiating. Inurnment will follow in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose.  Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to STARS, or the Hospice Society of Camrose and District. To send condolences please visit

Nellie Irene Johanson Nellie was born on December 22, 1926 in Ferintosh to Victor and Elsie Lindgren. It was there she attended school and met her husband Herb Johanson. They married on August 7, 1948 and lived on the family farm in the Ferintosh area until they retired to Camrose in November 1992. Nellie was living at Bethany Meadows when she went home to be with the Lord on June 1, 2013 at the age of 86 years after a brief illness. Nellie will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her four children Douglas (Linda) Johanson of Calgary, Brian (Dorothy) Johanson of Red Deer, Diane (Peter) Markiw of Edmonton and Karen (Barry) Alackson of Edmonton; 10 grandchildren Sarah (Brian) Boys, Benjamin (Chanel) Johanson, Jonathan (Rebekah) Johanson, Daniel (Kristin) Johanson, Jennifer (Mark) Jacobsen, Wendy (Don) Chambers, Trevor (Sonja) Johanson, Alison (Kent) Roberts, Erin (John) Knoll and David Alackson; 15 greatgrandchildren Ashwyn and Viggo Boys, Emelia and Esmee Johanson, Willem and Benjamin Johanson, Jared, Elise and Ryan Jacobsen, Gavin, Talia and Shanelle Chambers, Hudson, Aili and Ike Johanson; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Nellie was predeceased by her husband Herb Johanson; her parents Victor and Elsie Lindgren; her sisters-in-law Dorothy (Cliff) Gillespie and Lily Johanson; and her brothers-in-law Clarence Johanson and Cliff Gillespie.   Nellie was first and foremost a loving wife, mother and homemaker. She loved to entertain family and friends. She was a wonderful cook and an excellent seamstress, but her great passion was music. She was an accomplished pianist and shared this gift with music students for over 40 years. Although she will be dearly missed, Nellie’s love of God, family and friends will always be remembered.  The family would like to express their deepest thanks to the many kind and gentle health care providers who helped Nellie through the last three years of her life. A funeral service was held on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. from Century Meadows Baptist Church with Rev. Ed Lehman officiating.

In loving memory of

David Jonathon Graham Life can change with a phone call, and that was what happened for the Graham family. With the tragic death of David, we were surrounded with love and well wishes from family, friends and acquaintances. Many of you said that you didn’t know what to say, and we understood. Now, we really don’t know what to say to convey how much we appreciated all that everyone did for us at this horrific time in our lives. Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough, but that’s what we will say. Pastor Rick Aupperlee was such a comfort and strength for the family. He did a tribute that was amazing and fitting for David, We thank you. The eulogy by David’s sister Jennifer was awesome. Thanks, Jen. Thank you to John Person and Burgar Funeral Home for their professional yet personal assistance with all the arrangements. For all the flowers, food brought to the house, phone calls and donations in David’s memory, we thank you all. We would also like to thank Century Meadows Baptist Church for the wonderful lunch and for being so helpful with everything. We would like to extend a special thank you to Dori Wolfe from The Open Door for bringing some of David’s friends to share stories with the family. They made us laugh; they made us cry; but their enthusiasm for life helped ease our pain. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful family, friends and neighbors who were there for us when we needed them. As we remember David, let’s remember in Jen’s words, “Let’s hold our children closer. Let’s turn down the TV and turn off our cell phones next time our family wants to talk to us.” Till we meet again. Love you. – The Graham and Nyback families

Dale Albin Winder

Avril Ronning

Dale Albin Winder was born on April 8, 1943 in Viking, Alberta, to Albin Isador and Anna Althea Carolina (Ekdahl) Winder. Surrounded by his loving family, Dale passed away peacefully on May 31, 2013 after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by his parents and a brother-inlaw, Donald Harrison, Dale leaves to mourn his loving wife of 46 years, Sylvia; son Darin (Heidi) Winder and their children Nissa and Anika; daughter Cheryl (Joe) Cordes and their children Rachel and Nathaniel; daughter Brenda (Guy) Murdock; sisters Shirley (Gerald) Widlake, Margaret (Jack) Bosgra, Gloria (Don) Harrison and Fern (David) Lindholm; nieces and nephews and many dear friends. Dale grew up in Alberta and, in his early years, the family frequently had to move (nine times in eight years), because of his dad’s work with BA Oil Company. Fortunately for Dale, making new friends came easily. He finished his high school education in New Norway where the family finally settled when he was 11 years old. His godly mother, Althea, made sure Dale and his siblings attended Sunday school and church growing up and, in his teens, he was part of a vibrant youth group. Dale often talked of the wonderful summers spent at Miquelon Lake Bible Camp where his faith and trust in God were strengthened. Dale’s greatest passion, however, was sports – in particular, he loved playing baseball and hockey. After high school graduation, Dale was one of 17 students to attend the brand new Trinity Junior College (now Trinity Western University) in Langley, BC. He was the first student body president and also sang bass with the first quartet to travel throughout the USA and Canada to promote the fledgling college. Dale had a love of gospel music. This past year, a highlight for him was to return to TWU for its 50th anniversary and to again sing with the “original” quartet. He, and the quartet, did a marvelous job!  It was also at TWU where Dale met, and married in 1966, the love of his life, Sylvia Barth. He continued his education at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Education, after which he taught school in Alberta for one year, and BC for nine years. It was in 1975 that Dale and Sylvia moved back to Alberta where they lived and raised their family in the small town of Kingman. Dale also changed vocations at that time and worked as an RV salesperson for 15 years, was in partnership in running a business in the oil field industry for eight years, and then took his turn working at the Camrose steel plant before retiring in 2009.  We will always remember Dale for his loving concern and respect for family and others. Everyone he met was important to him, and he selflessly put others before himself, which was shown by his willingness for helping and giving to all who crossed his path. These past five months, the hospital staff enjoyed Dale’s quick wit and sense of humour, and often commented on his kind eyes and warm smile. His honesty, integrity, quiet faith and strength were a role model for his children, family and friends to look up to, and he will always be remembered and admired by those who knew him because, during his lifetime, he didn’t tell us how to live – he showed us. A funeral service was held on Friday, June 7, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.  from Kingman Baptist Church with Pastor Richard Schultz officiating.  Interment has taken place in Kingman Cemetery. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Kingman Cemetery Fund, St. Mary’s Palliative Care, or to Prostate Cancer Canada. To send condolences please visit

In loving memory of April 15, 1938 – June 10, 2006 When ties of love are broken, And loves ones have to part, It leaves a wound that never heals And an ever-aching heart.

Lovingly remembered, Bernice, Linda, Gordon, Michael, Ethan and Evelyn

How Today’s Consumers Shop and Spend SURVEY DATA UNVEILED Advertising salespeople for phonebooks/radio/TV competing against newspapers are likely in “blush mode” Research conducted by Frank N. Magid Associates, a leading research-based strategic consulting firm 2,000 interviews conducted – people age 18 years of age and up •  93 percent reported using at least one of 19 advertising sources to plan shopping or  make purchasing decisions in the seven days leading up to the survey. •  Print newspapers scored highest at 62 percent. •  When combined with newspaper websites, the net number totalled 66 percent. •  Tied for second with 57 percent each were store product displays and eight online sources  including email, websites, social networks, search engines and mobile. •  Newspapers scored higher for women (65 percent) than men (58 percent). •  The “reach” of newspapers was robust starting at people aged 25 years. •  Online sources did well with people aged under 50 years. •  Direct mail ranked higher with women than men (59 percent versus 46 percent). •  Television came in at under 50 percent for both women and men, and barely went above  that number for ages 18 to 24 and 35 to 49. Newspapers ranked first or tied for first place in seven of 12 areas of advertising benefits.  The top three were: •  “You check for your regular shopping” •  “Most valuable in planning shopping” •  Most believable and trustworthy” •  Only seven percent said they tried to avoid advertising in newspapers compared to 18 percent  for online and 22 percent for television. •  Just three percent of respondents categorized newspaper advertising as “most annoying.” “If you remember only one thing from this survey,” researcher Jim Conaghan said,  “it’s this: More than 8 in 10 adults – 81 percent – took action in the past month as a result of seeing  a newspaper ad in any section of the newspaper.” He added that more than half (53 percent)  make an actual purchase. Actions included becoming aware of a sale, clipping a coupon,  visiting a bricks-and-mortar store, and discussing with friends and family. Three online actions –  visiting a website to learn more, using search to find more information and purchasing – netted 40 percent. •  For preprints (flyers), seven in ten said they regularily or occasionally read them. •  Half of those surveyed report using preprints to plan shopping in the past seven days. •  Women outrank men for preprint usage (75 percent versus 64 percent). •  More than 8 in 10 adults (81 percent) have taken some action in the past 30 days as a result of seeing a preprint ad. •  44 percent of people said they took the circular to the store with them. •  44 percent of people said they made an unplanned purchase based on flyer advertising. •  For insert delivery, 42 percent said they preferred newspapers, 26 percent favored mail  and 20 percent gave the nod to online. •  On average, inserts were kept for more than half a week. Three out of 10 people keep inserts for a week or more. •  On a net basis, while 67 percent of respondents said they engaged in some type of online shopping  in the past 30 days, 93 percent of visitors to newspaper websites did so.

Army Cadets conduct ceremonial review

Lt. Col. Colin Michaud from the "B" squadron of the South Alberta Light Horse led the inspecting party at the annual ceremonial review of the 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps at the Camrose Community Centre June 4. Lt. Col. Michaud told the cadets he was impressed with their drill, and encouraged them to work hard at whatever they are doing. He noted that 90 per cent of the Canadian "regulars" were at one time involved in the cadet program. As participants in an activity based program, the cadets were busy from September through June. Whether it was participating in field training, marksmanship, biathlon, physical training, the cadets were given the opportunity to learn, to experience and to grow. They made friends, they challenged themselves and each other, and they shared the bond of common experiences. Many of the cadets will now be going off to summer training. As well, three members of the corps will have the privilege of taking part in a battlefield tour put on by the South Alberta Light Horse Regimental Association.

No sitting still for the Stihl boys! The ad went out... and the people started coming in! ...“often with our ad in their hands,” noted Roger Shermack, a trusted and reliable Stihl dealer since 1996. Battle River Recreation Repair advertised Stihl product and sale pricing in the Jaywalkers’ Jamboree Super Booster. “As soon as The Booster hit mailboxes we started getting busy. We’re still (Friday, June 7th) swamped with unpacking and selling new trimmers, chainsaws, and blowers”, said business associate Ron Fowler. “What has made this sale extra fun is watching people come through the door with our ad in their hands. Several times this week we’ve had people drop the ad on our counter, point to an item pictured in the ad and simply say, ‘I’d like one of these.’ ” Shermack sums it up; “That ad sure worked!”

Work begins on new Zetsen charity home By Dan Jensen

The hole has been dug and the lot has been prepared for the new Zetsen Master Builders charity home in the Creekview subdivision. "From the stage where we are now to completion is usually four months, so we'll spend the summer getting it ready and by late September should have a lovely home ready for somebody to move into," said Zetsen Master Builders Inc. co-owner Garry Zetsen. The home will be built using materials and labour provided by local businesses, then sold at fair market value. After expense proceeds will then be donated to the Battle River Community Foundation. The charity home build is the fourth that Zetsen Master Builders has spearheaded over the last 20 or so years in support of Bethany, the St. Mary's Hospital CT scanner and Centra Cam Vocational Training Association. The current project aligns nicely with the Battle River Community Foundation's goal of building community. "Kevin (Lindholm, co-owner of Zetsen Master Builders) and I believe the Foundation is a very worthy charity," said Zetsen. "The endowments they are managing are enduring and will have long lasting benefits not just for Camrose but the entire Battle River area. "We're looking forward to working with the Battle River Community Foundation in a way that will help them reach their goals and us to reach ours."

Standing on the lot in Creekview subdivision where Zetsen Master Builders has chosen to erect a new home in support of the Battle River Community Foundation are: (left to right) Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler, Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers, Zetsen Master Builders owner Kevin Lindholm, Creekview Developments representative Carman Mason, Zetsen Master Builders owner Garry Zetsen, and Royal LePage realtor Rick Forster.

Zetsen Master Builders has received great buy-in on the home build from the construction community. "Everybody gets the chance to work together for a common goal and be involved in the construction of something that is permanent and has a lasting impact," said Zetsen. "It's not just the local contractors and suppliers who have donated but the national ones as well." Creekvieiw Developments has provided the lot at a sig-

nificantly reduced price, while Camrose realtor Rick Forster will be donating all commissions from the sale of the home once it is ready to be placed on the market. The new home will have more than 2,000 square feet of living space on two levels, a front drive garage, four bedrooms and a bonus room on the upper level. "We're using a totally new design," said Lindholm. The sale of a home built by Zetsen Master Builders three

years ago to assist Centra Cam generated a donation of $90,000. "Kevin and I are two very competitive people with sports backgrounds so we would like to beat that total, but at the same time we have to be realistic and realize that things are a little different this time," said Zetsen. "I think for sure that we will be able to hit the $50,000 mark and possibly go even higher. It is a big goal and it is going to be a challenge but I think it is achievable." Battle River Community

Foundation board chair Blain Fowler said everyone on the BRCF board is absolutely thrilled that the Foundation has been chosen to be the beneficiary of Zetsen Master Builders' next charity construction project. "Together with participating local tradesmen and their suppliers of building materials, Kevin and Garry are true community builders in every respect. Once again, we are impressed with the people who live in our caring and generous community."

Be one of the first to see the 2014 Sierra

By Dan Jensen

McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC customers are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2014 GMC Sierra. "We expect to have it on the lot within the next week or two," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. "I have a feeling people are going to like what they see." Rich V-6 heritage

The 2014 Sierra offers the choice of three new, advanced EcoTec 34 engines – a 5.3 litre V-8, a 6.2 litre V-8 and a 4.3 litre V-6, each of which is designed specifically for the high trailering and hauling demands unique to truck buyers. Sierras equipped with the 4.3 litre EcoTec 3 V-6 have trailering ratings of up to 7,200 pounds (3,266 kg) for a regular cab, short bed, four-wheel drive model. The V-6 produces an SAE certified 285 horsepower and is matched with a proven, efficient, six-speed automatic transmission. The new V-6 features three state-of-the-art technologies – direct injection, active fuel management (cylinder de-activation), and continuously variable valve timing – that have been proven and perfected through six million hours of computational analysis by engineers studying the combustion process. In all, ten million CPU hours were spent refining and making the most of the Sierra's EcoTec 3 engines. "This is technology no other truck maker can match, and we offer it in every EcoTec 3 engine for every customer," said Jordan Lee, GM Powertrain chief engineer. "It is a standard feature so our drivers get our best and most sophisticated technology, regardless of trim level." Although it shares only a handful of parts with previous Sierra engines, the new EcoTec 3 V-6 builds on experience gained from millions of trucks and billions of real-world customer miles resulting from a half century of leadership in V-6 engine

development. In 1960, GMC debuted the first V-6 pickup truck ever and offered it exclusively through most of the 1960s. That engine, offered in various displacements starting at 5.0 litres, was designed with aluminum pistons, improved cooling and a stout crankshaft and bearings designed for unprecedented durability. "The family of V-6 engines introduced in 1960 was designed to last, and I've heard of some owners going more than 450,000 miles on the original engine," said Donald Meyer, GMC truck historian. "They had really high torque and pulled loads well. GMC knew how to build durable, reliable engines that never quit." Like the 2014 engine, the 4.3 litre V-6 introduced as standard equipment for GMC half-ton pickups in 1985 used geometry and engineering from the brand's proven Small Block V-8. As with today's V-6, engineers studied the combustion chamber, developing "Vortec" technology that swirled the air and fuel inside the engine to create a more homogenous mix, improving power and efficiency. That engine was the basis for new generations of engines throughout the 2013 model year. Fuel economy

The all-new Sierra 2014 spent more development time in a wind tunnel than any GMC pickup before it, resulting in design changes that benefit both fuel efficiency and interior quietness. A new air dam below the Sierra's front bumper successfully reduces drag because it directs air toward the ground and away from the truck's rough underbody. And Sierra's ducted flow path between the grille and radiator prevents air from swirling inside the truck's front cavities. Even the top of the Sierra's tailgate and the centre high-mounted stop lamp are optimized to guide air cleanly around the truck. Safety features

The 2014 Sierra comes with available advanced active safety features never offered to full-size

pickup truck owners, including Forward Collision Alert and Pete Pastuck Lane Departure Warning. The manner by which alerts from the system are delivered to the driver is equally innovative, thanks to GMC's optional Safety Alert Seat, which provides feedback transmitted as a vibration through the surface of the driver's seat bottom cushion. When the Lane Departure Warning system's camera detects the Sierra is leaving a lane without a turn signal active in that direction, a vibration in the left or right seat bolster directs the driver's attention to the side of the lane encroachment. When a potential collision is detected ahead by the Forward Collision Alert system, both sides of the seat vibrate. "It's akin to someone tapping on your shoulder in a crowd to get your attention," said General Motors Active Safety Technical Fellow Raymond Kiefer. "Using the tactile sense to communicate crash threat direction provides an effective and intuitive way to cut through the clutter of visual and auditory sensory information that drivers routinely experience." Forward Collision Alert uses a camera behind the windshield to monitor traffic ahead and estimate time to collision. A green vehicle-shaped icon on the instrument cluster lets the driver know the system detects a vehicle ahead. When the Sierra gets too close to a vehicle ahead the icon turns orange. When approaching a vehicle too rapidly, red lights flash on the windshield and the driver is alerted either audibly or through the optional Safety Alert Seat. Lane Departure Warning uses an icon of a vehicle crossing a dotted lane marker and shines green when detecting a lane ahead at speeds above 50 km/h. The icon glows amber and flashes when a warning is active.

Take No Bull ride has 10 contestants, searching for more By Murray Green

The Family Violence Action Society (FVAS) has recruited 10 volunteers to ride a bull during the Big Valley Jamboree Parade. But, the search is not over. "We would like to see a few more people put their names forward," said Sheralyn Dobos, program director for the Family Violence Action Society. "The deadline for applications is on June 18." Lee Foreman, Camrose Police Service; Don Gregorwich, Camrose County; Peter Holliday, City of Camrose; Peter Krich, Camrose Fire Department; Ray McIsaac, City Council; Randal Nickel, Open Door Association; Trent Reinke, Wesroc; Jan Turnbull, (CHAMP) Charlie Killam School; Holly Weiler, BMO and Rod MacInnis, Alberta Works have already let their names stand. "Lee and Randal are raising funds in each other's name to get the other person to ride the steer in the parade," added Sheralyn. "The winner will be the parade marshal and lead the Big Valley Jamboree Parade around downtown on Aug. 1." The Family Violence Action Society contest is open to anyone who wants to ride a bull and be a parade marshal. The Brahma-cross steer called Wild West Willie (from Bentley) stopped in Camrose during Jaywalkers' Jamboree to have a look around the city and meet some people.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster

Sheralyn Dobos is seeking a parade marshal and brave steer rider for the Big Valley Jamboree Parade.

"We wanted something different and novel. Riding a 3,000 pound Brahma steer in a parade is something the winner probably will never experience again. It is a unique opportunity for fun and friendly competition in the spirit of charitable fund-raising," said Sheralyn. "The bull is actually a seasoned veteran of parades and is very tame. He has been in the Calgary Stampede every year since 2005 and the famous Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena (California)." A fund-raising duel will ben-

efit FVAS. “The contest will raise awareness of family violence as a community issue. We can draw attention to our programs and services for people who want to take responsibility for their actions and create a stable, respectful home life," added Sheralyn. You can make a difference for children, men and women who want the abuse to stop. Donations can be made online and are eligible for tax receipts. Contestants are not expected to handle funds. A draw will made at a lunTrim: be 10.25”

cheon for all contestants on July 26. Each of the top 10 entries will have one entry in the draw per $100 raised in his/her name. The first name drawn is to be the rider in the BVJ Parade. He or she will be named supreme champion, presented with the 2013 Take No Bull trophy buckle and receive a customframed portrait upon completing the ride. He or she will also have the opportunity to advertise his or her business on the saddlebag blanket during the parade.

"We will have a draw from all of the contestants for a package of four BVJ Kick-off tickets that was donated by Panhandle Productions," said Sheralyn. "For each $250 they raise, the person will have one chance to enter the draw. The more money they raise will result in more entries and a better chance to win. If we have more than 10 contestants, this allows the other people a chance to win as well." Contestant applications are available at, or can be picked up at the office of Camrose and District Support Services. Donations to support a specific contestant can be made online at or donations by cash/cheque can be made at BMO Camrose branch, D and D Vehicle Sales, and Camrose and District Support Services. Pledges will be raised and gratefully accepted until July 26. Contestants using social media are asked to “like” Take No Bull on Facebook. Contestants must be at least 18 years of age on the date of the parade. Visit Facebook page at www.facebook. com/TakeNoBull to view the music video. Local singer, songwriter and guitarist Ken Grambo leads the project. He has help with background vocals and music by Leslie Lindballe, Jordan Leden and Devin Rehm. Odessa Sherbaniuk and Leslie are the video-graphers. For more information contact Sheralyn Dobos at email cdss5@ or call 780-672-0141.

Chamber challenges businesses to be the best By Murray Green

The Camrose Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Camrose are asking businesses to battle for supremacy. Visitors to this summer’s Big Valley Jamboree will be arriving amidst fierce competition by local businesses as they vie for the title of CAM-FM 98.1 Big Valley Jamboree Business of the Summer. In the weeks leading up to, and during the Big Valley Jamboree music festival, businesses will decorate their store fronts and staff to impress a panel of local judges to win the title, while at the same time welcoming visitors to Camrose with open arms. “There is more to it than just the competitive business aspect,” said Hazel Cail, coordinator for Tourism Camrose. “We have an amazing variety of boutique-style

shops here, and during the BVJ long weekend over 90,000 people will set foot within our city. We want them to feel welcome here and to know we sincerely appreciate their visiting us.” The winner of the contest will receive a trophy, BVJ tickets, a promotional package worth over $20,000 that includes advertising on the radio. “This is an excellent way to showcase Camrose to visitors from all over the world, and let them know that our local businesses are ready to take care of them while they are here," said Sharon Anderson, executive director of the Camrose Chamber of Commerce. The competition closes July 19 with a winner being announced on the radio at 7:30 a.m. on July 29. For full contest details visit

Parliamentary Report Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot


Senate Reform

Many of you have contacted me following the Senate travel and expenses scandal involving four Senators, three from our Conservative Caucus. I am very disappointed by these revelations. This looks like the ‘culture of entitlement’ that we have been fighting against in successive elections. I have consistently stood for accountability and safeguarding taxpayer funds, as has our Conservative Party. Going forward, as your Member of Parliament, I can assure you that our Conservative government will hold all senators to account. Prime Minister Stephen Harper addressed the National Caucus saying, “We have worked hard, collectively as a party, as a caucus, and as a government, to dramatically strengthen accountability rules in Ottawa and to apply those standards to ourselves. “I need not remind you, that in 2006, this government was first elected to clean up the Liberal sponsorship scandal, to ensure the rules are followed and to ensure there are consequences when they are not. Our Federal Accountability Act, the toughest accountability legislation in the history of this country, forever changed the way business is done in Ottawa. We have: strengthened the powers of the Auditor General; toughened the office of the Ethics Commissioner; reformed political party financing; dramatically tightened lobbying rules; and, beefed up auditing and accountability within government departments.” The Hon. Marjory LeBreton, Leader of the Government in the Senate, announced tough new rules governing Senate travel and expenses proposed by Conservative Senators. Forty-eight hours after unveiling them, on May 28, 2013, they were adopted by the Senate of Canada. Included in the 11 new measures, we will: remove the presumption that a senator acts honorably with respect to expenses; clarify residency expense claims; require specific purposes for travel when claiming expenses; require mileage logs; mandatory taxi receipts; restrict per diems; reduce the travel-point system; restrict a Senator’s designated traveler to a spouse or partner; require monthly reports on travel patterns; amend travel categories; and, limit international travel. Our Conservative Government has been working on Senate reform since 2007 and has consistently introduced legislation to change the Senate. On February 1st, we launched a reference on Senate reform to the Supreme Court of Canada. We look forward to receiving the Supreme Court’s opinion on what specifically is required to reform the Senate and what is required to abolish the Senate. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are now investigating and Senator LeBreton is calling for the Auditor General of Canada to conduct a comprehensive audit of Senate expenses. Our Conservative government will continue to advocate for and push for Senate reform. We will continue to protect taxpayers from abuses of public trust.

Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson presented a Community Initiatives Program grant for $10,000 to the Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dance Society last week to defray the cost of a tour to Ukraine July 6 to 25. Accepting the grant were Veselka Ukrainian Dancers (front, left to right) Malia and Brooklyn Pattullo and (back, left to right) Lauren and Kim Matiushiuk. The tour, which will visit four different regions of Ukraine, will include a total of 40 participants, including 14 dancers and one instructor. Along with learning Urkainian dance in a series of one-day workshops, the dancers will be able to experience the life and culture of a country that is far different than their own. They will see the country, where some farmers still cut their grain using scythes and draw water from a well using a bucket and pulley system, visit metropolitan areas, and take gifts to an orphanage. They will also come close to Chernobyl, where they will be able to hear stories about the nuclear disaster that occurred on April 26, 1986. The travel group expects the new dances that are learned and the knowledge about Ukraine that is gained will benefit not only those who belong to the Veselka Ukrainian Dancers but the broader Camrose community.

Ohaton construction mess has residents steamed

By Murray Green

Ohaton resident Tony Metivier got stuck in his driveway one day and that didn't sit well with the Camrose businessman. Tony approached Camrose County about his thoughts of access water and slow construction in his community on June 4. "I'm concerned about the ditches that are being built in Ohaton. I have problems of where the water is going and not going. The communication between the construction company and the community has been zero," said a frustrated Tony to council. "I can't speak for other property owners, I can only speak about my concerns. I'm sure if you asked them, they would have the same concerns as I do. People are not happy." New culverts are being installed in Ohaton to divert water away from residents. "I live on a corner lot. They have dug up my driveway twice now because they put in the culvert backwards," Tony explained. "Now I can't get out of my driveway because it (vehicle) sinks and we get stuck. I was promised that I could move the lawn in the spring last fall, but it is about a 45 degree angle and it dangerous to cut. It is horrid." His driveway was dug up

twice because it was angled to drain water uphill, which created a body of stagnant water. "My conversation with the contractor was about the fact the water was to be able to drain into the slough. However, the slough water level is higher than the rest of the ditches," continued Tony. "We (the community residents) received a letter in the mail late Monday saying to meet with the contractor at 9 a.m. on a Tuesday morning. With the short notice, needless to say it wasn't well represented by the community. I don't get upset very often, but this has me upset." Deputy Reeve Rob Bjorge asked to call in county public works manager Graham Backus to help answer some of Tony's concerns. Councillor Doug Lyseng indicated that Jenivar, who is in charge of the contract, be brought in to council to address some of the concerns. He also asked for clarity on the ditching problems. "Show me anywhere in a residential area that there are four by eight foot ditches around your home," Tony added. "They put in the culvert backwards, so I had a foot and half of water in the ditch for most of the spring and the neighbour had three feet of water that was supposed to drain into

the slough. Water always runs downhill, so it had nowhere to go. They stopped digging because the elevation was wrong." Councillor Brian Austrom said that the project was started to correct the problem of drainage. "Obviously, we need to get Brant (Poyser) and the engineers in here to explain this. We have a drainage issue where the water isn't moving and the ditches are too deep. This needs to be corrected. Until we have the right people here, there is not much we can do." Resident Gord Graham has lived in the same spot for 35 years. "He has never had a problem with water until this year," said Tony. "Now we have three feet of water in the ditch. It didn't solve a problem, it created a problem." Roberts Street, which joins Alberta Street is currently being prepped for paving. "Border Paving is there to begin work today. There has been an issue with a culvert that has been back graded, so that ditch is deeper. I was out there last week and did note that the ditch in front of your place was a bit wonky," said Graham Backus of the county. "That has to be corrected. We have had quite a bit of rain, so there is extra water. 'You have to

break eggs to make an omelette.' All of this will be corrected. I can assure you that. I have never had a job that hasn't looked good in the end. I am confident that we can correct that." Graham addressed the question about mowing the lawn. "Those slopes are three to one. People have said they are too steep in the past, but in the end they worked out just fine. They are not any deeper than the existing ones across the street on the east side of the road. The problem is that on the west side of Roberts Street there was no ditch. Now you have a ditch. It might be big, but when you have grass in it you won't notice it. Right now it looks deep because its mud, under construction and it looks ugly. I agree with you there. Once the grass gets growing and all the culverts are in place, it is going to look good." Graham explained to Tony that the project had a late start because of the large amount of snow this winter and the wet spring. "The concern is the large amounts of water in places we have never had water before," said Tony. Councillor Vern Peterson asked about the water level of the

slough. "The drawings show the slough is lower than the ditches," said Graham. "The problem was the culvert was back graded. What that means is that it was supposed to drain south to north, but it is draining north to south. They (construction) got the grades mixed up." The paving should be completed by June 14. Tony indicated that more communication needs to be in place. "We are not going to leave this project unfinished. Our public works manager has already spoke to that," said councillor Brian. "You may not have problems with water, but everything runs west over the years. People did landscaping on county property, which created problems. It's not that you had water issues, it is because of the whole drainage pattern that the ditches had to be put in. A drainage plan for the whole community was done, so to accommodate that we had to make some changes." Graham said that everyone has to buy into the water drainage. "We need storm drainage in order for the community to grow." The deputy reeve asked administration and councillor Brian to monitor the project as it is being completed.

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.

Volunteers deserve recognition Volunteers give their time, skills, and energy to all kinds of causes all year round. It is hard to imagine life in our communities without the efforts of the 12.5 million volunteers across Canada who give their time so generously to any number of causes. Their work benefits community services, shelters, hospitals, sports teams, political movements, volunteer fire services, and the environment, to name just a few. Whatever role they choose to play, they are pillars in their communities, important agents for social change. They are citizens who contribute to the wellbeing of the local population. We should all take the time as individuals to show our appreciation of those who devote themselves to good causes.

Every householder uses products in the house and garden containing chemicals that are hazardous when disposed of improperly. Mixed together in landfills, these chemicals can be dangerous – to the workers and to the environment. Camrose Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be held on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, 2013 at the PUBLIC WORKS YARDS. Keep your materials in their original containers. If the container is broken or cracked, place it inside a leak-proof package and label it. If you discover jars or cans of unidentified chemicals, take them to the Round-Up and tell a staff person you are unsure of the contents. Any container that cautions about careful use of the product or disposal of the container should be included in the Hazardous Waste Round-Up. All the materials collected at the Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be collected, classified, manifested, packed and transported by trained personnel and taken to the Alberta Special Waste Management Facility near Swan Hills where the waste will be taken for proper treatment and disposal. The cost of treatment will be borne by Alberta Environment. Your cooperation and support of the Camrose Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up is most appreciated. Examples of typical household hazardous wastes are: -

Adhesives Aerosols Ammonia Art supplies Bleach Barbecue starter


Cleaning fluids Disinfectants Drain cleaners Flea powder Herbicides Insecticides

FCL assists families By Dan Jensen

Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) made a historic gift last week of $5 million over five years to the five children's hospital foundations in western Canada. The Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton receives $825,000, the same as the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation in Calgary. The Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan receives $1.7 million, the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba $1.1 million and the B.C. Children's Hospital Foundation $550,000. FCL includes Wild Rose Coop, which has a long tradition of supporting community events and groups throughout the east central Alberta trading area. "This gift by Federated Cooperatives on behalf of local cooperatives across western Canada to the children’s hospitals is a continuation of this strong tradition of giving that we execute every day," said Wildrose Co-op general manager Carol Rollheiser. "To share in this gift of $825,000 over five years to The Stollery brings immense pride to our cooperative and our members." FCL knows it is important to do what is possible to make children and families feel at home while in hospital. "For nearly a century, coops have built their reputations on being the local business that cares about people and communities, partnering with others that hold similar values in support of causes that matter to each of us," said FCL CEO Scott Banda. "At the end of the day nothing says you're at home more than children and families. That is why we support the five children's hospital foundations and the work they are doing to provide an environment that offers compassion and support to children and their families during some of the most difficult times in their lives."
