Local beef being served at McDonald's By Murray Green

Alberta residents may notice two familiar faces joining them at the table as they dig into their favourite hamburger at McDonald's. Canadian Cattlemen's Association (CCA) vice-president Dave Solverson and his daughter, Joanne Solverson, are featured on a new paper tray liner at McDonald's restaurants across Canada. The multi-generation farm family from just west of Camrose are featured beside the image of a Big Mac, made from 100 per cent pure Canadian beef along with a farm site. On the back is nutrition information for all products sold at McDonald's. "I was first approached by a cattle buyer from Cargill, the company to which we sell most of our finished products," explained Dave. "Cargill is the sole supplier for McDonald's beef patties. They have a plant in Spruce Grove were they manufacture the patties to send across Canada. Cargill talked to me because they wanted a producer-connection to the products McDonald's serves, to tie into a campaign about the restaurant serving 100 per cent Canadian beef." Not only is the beef Canadian, it could come from the Solverson farm itself. The beeffocused tray liner is part of a campaign to highlight the quality ingredients that are used in McDonald's food. "They wanted to include Joanne (a student at Olds College who returns to the family farm for the summer) to show the fact we are a farm family of several generations," continued Dave. "We are proud of the quality of our food, and want to be transparent about the ingredients we use and where we source those ingredients," said Jeff Kroll, sen-

Joanne and her father Dave Solverson are featured on tray liners at McDonald's Restaurants.

ior vice-president, national supply chain, McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Limited. Solverson said he is happy to be a part of the tray liner campaign for beef, as it raises awareness among McDonald's customers about the level of care and attention that Canadian producers put into cattle production every day. A fourth-generation farm family, the Solversons produce beef at their ranch near Cam-

rose. The family takes great care to ensure the production practices used at their ranch produce healthy and nutritious beef. As the long-standing chairman of the CCA's animal care committee, Dave is actively involved in animal welfare issues, including the ongoing evolution of national farm animal care guidelines, to ensure they reflect best practices. He was excited to be able to share that messaging with consumers who

enjoy Canadian beef at McDonald's. "It is not just our farm, but as a whole, Canadian producers treat their animals with care. Another reason I was pleased to do this for McDonald's is the fact that they have stayed with us over the years, even though we went through some trying times with BSE," said Dave. "Canadian producers really appreciate McDonald's commitment to 100 per cent Canadian product," Solverson said. "We pre-

fer to do business with companies that have similar standards. Working with McDonald's Canada gives us the opportunity to increase consumer awareness of these standards with the Canadian beef industry," Dave states on the tray liner. "McDonald's is a major fast food chain, but they care about their products and supply good, healthy food," said Joanne. "They not only provide healthy food, but with the volume they have, they support a lot of Canadian, Alberta producers and several local farms. It shows they support communities." The CCA has a program for young leaders of which Joanne is a part. "She was named a young leader for 2012. It is a mentorship program and she will be working with industry leaders," said Dave. "It gives an opportunity to young and enthusiastic people, interested in beef production, to really expand their knowledge through networking opportunities, as well as working with somebody in the industry," said Joanne. "It can help with careers or working knowledge of the industry. It is a good way to meet people from across Canada." The industry has suffered through tough times over the past 10 years and has lost some young farmers and producers because of the volatile nature of the business. "CCA is concerned about the number of the next generation of producers," said Dave. Fewer producers are expected to produce more in the future. "We are one of the five or six nations that actually produce more than we consume." The tray liners are printed on 100 per cent recycled paper. The Solverson tray liner will be used throughout the summer.

Council approves Big Valley Jamboree sponsorship By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose will be sponsoring a meal for those attending the 2012 Big Valley Jamboree kick-off party Aug. 2. Camrose City council has directed City administration to draw $12,500 from general operating reserves to cover the expense of providing beef on a bun and salads to the first 1,500 guests who pass through the gate. Mayor Marshall Chalmers feels the sponsorship is a good opportunity for the City of Camrose to step forward and show leadership. "It is a way to thank those that organize the event and it is a way to thank people for the millions they have spent in our community." The request for sponsorship was presented at council's June 11 meeting by Panhandle Productions producer Larry Werner. "The intent is to do something different," said Werner. "We want to get people out of the campgrounds and taking part in the Jamboree events earlier." Werner said the City of Camrose would have an opportunity to set up a booth and display banners to let people know that it is sponsoring the meal. He also noted that the City of

Toby Keith is the headliner at the 2012 Big Valley Jamboree.

Camrose would be included in the CISN Country 103.9 radio campaign that will promote the kickoff party. "It is all about making this a partnership. We want to make sure the City comes on board and gets its share of the exposure." Councillor Brandon Blatz said he has no problem with the sponsorship request, noting that Big Valley Jamboree is the biggest show in town.

"It wouldn't make sense if the City of Camrose did not support this." City of Camrose economic development officer Ray Telford recommended that council decline the sponsorship request. He said the City of Camrose has not budgeted funds for this type of sponsorship and the community assistance fund has been reduced to a current balance of $3,900.

Telford said if the City was to sponsor the kick-off meal it would be hard to determine the return on investment. "All of the advertising already mentions the city of Camrose as the location of the event." Councillor Gerry Galenza said while council has handcuffed administration by providing only a certain amount for sponsorships, the City has been able to find dollars for other high profile events, including the performance by the Canadian Snowbirds. "We found the money, we did it and it was a positive thing for the community." Galenza mentioned that Big Valley Jamboree and Panhandle Productions have made an investment of more than $3 million in the Camrose Regional Exhibition grounds, which are owned by the City, and that Big Valley Jamboree, according to numbers provided by Alberta Tourism, has a $9 million impact on the community. Galenza noted at the beginning of the meeting that Panhandle Productions is owned by the Camrose Regional Exhibition, a non profit organization. "It was taken over by the CRE because there was a danger of it not being around."

Councillor Daryl Shillington said while the Big Valley Jamboree is a tremendous world class event, it would have been fairer to the other community organizations in Camrose had Panhandle Productions approached the City with its request for sponsorship last fall. "My only concern and disappointment is that you did not come at budget time." Werner said at the time the City budget was being discussed Panhandle Productions thought it had a different sponsor. He added that typically, Panhandle Productions tries to do as much as possible on its own. Councillor Ray McIsaac said the sponsorship is a good deal for the City. "If the Jamboree has 82,000 patrons over the four days, that works out to a cost of 15 cents per head." Big Valley Jamboree has become one of the most respected country music festivals in North America, and over the years has been a must-attend destination for millions of loyal music lovers. Big Valley Jamboree has won the coveted Canadian Country Music Association's event of the year five times since 2001.

Dissolution vote in hands of New Norway residents By Murray Green

New Norway residents will be deciding if they want the community to be a village or a hamlet on Thursday, June 21. The municipal affairs department held a public meeting in New Norway to respond to questions and gather written feedback on June 13. The non-binding vote, held between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., will ask residents over the age of 18 if they are in favour of dissolving the Village of New Norway to become part of Camrose County. The final decision will be made by Doug Griffiths, minister of municipal affairs and the Cabinet if he recommends dissolution. During the last census, New Norway had 323 residents. 'It is very important to make written submissions, so it goes to the minister to review," said Linda Reynolds, municipal sustainability advisor. "You have until June 29 to send in written submissions." Camrose County has stayed away from influencing the vote, but submitted its portion of a workbook to provide information for the dissolution study to help people with the voting process. "If the dissolution goes ahead, all assets go to the county. However, any cash assets would be used for New Norway projects," explained Linda. Linda and Kai So of municipal affairs led the meeting. "Long-tern debt would also go to the county and they could either absorb it by using cash assets, or add a special tax for New Norway residents to pay for it." People attending the public meeting were asked to post notes on the wall with their concerns or comments. The number of notes were close to an even split on whether to remain a village or return to a hamlet. Currently, New Norway took out a debenture to repair and renovate a portion of Olstad Street. The sewer and water infrastructure was added. A loan was funded through the Camrose

branch of ATB Financial for about $230,000 last October. "Dissolution would switch the obligation of New Norway residents from the village to the county to pay off any debt outstanding on the date of dissolution," Linda said. The loan is for 20 years and the overall project is a quarter completed. Last summer a petition from the electors of the Village of New Norway asked for a dissolution study to consider the financial, administrative and service impacts of the village becoming a hamlet within the Camrose County. A dissolution booklet was sent to the village and contains a list of all services/utilities and programs that municipalities offer. New Norway residents responded as to which ones they do have, how they are funded, how they are staffed and they commented on any other services or programs not mentioned. The workbook was then sent to the county for comments regarding whether the services identified by the village are ones that the county offers. The Village of New Norway supplied a list of things they have to pay off or complete. Currently, the village owns a garbage truck, fire van, truck, tanker, two tractors, the village office, fire hall, water treatment plant, water tower and cookout building. "If dissolution occurs, the sale of any assets or inventory must be accounted for separately, and the funds could only be used for projects in the hamlet of New Norway, or to pay off any hamlet debt," said Linda. "The county would undertake an infrastructure assessment study to determine the state of the village's capital and the infrastructure would be added to the county's multi-year capital plan," said Steve Gerlitz, Camrose County administrator, prior to the public meeting in New Norway. "This means that capital projects identified for the village would be prioritized along with the capital infrastructure needs of the county

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Village of New Norway residents Joyce Beeton and Travis Rott post their concerns on the wall during a Government of Alberta dissolution study meeting at the community hall on June 13. Local residents seem to be split on the question if New Norway should remain a village or return to hamlet status. A vote will be held on June 21.

as a whole. The county would complete village projects that are currently underway and that have full funding in place." All MSI funding for the next five years would remain the same if the vote of dissolution is passed. "Then it will be based on the county's population, like any other hamlet," explained Linda. "The county will decide which projects would receive priority." New Norway has a number of recreation and community boards. The county would like to continue with any municipally owned recreational facilities and it would continue to be operated by community groups. Legacy grants for capital funding or upgrades would have to be applied for.

Should dissolution occur, the ownership and management of the fire equipment and hall would transfer to the County. All services provided by the department would be under review. Currently, New Norway doesn't have a library or a board. People can purchase cards from other libraries and they receive refunds. The County is a funding member of the Parkland Regional Library, which funds libraries in Camrose, Bashaw, Hay Lakes, Bawlf and Edberg. "Emergency services are already under the county. The only difference is that the county charges for non-emergency calls," said Linda. Community groups for camp-

grounds and ball diamonds would be expected to maintain and manage their own facilities in both cases. The village provides weekly curb garbage pick-up services. The county does not provide curbside garbage or recycling pick-up and residents will be expected to use a landfill or recycling trailer. Rural residents are not allowed to vote on the question. However, all comments are recorded and assembled in the report and we encourage everyone to participate," added Linda. "After the vote, it could still take two or three months for a final decision."

University seeks government funding for science labs By Dan Jensen

The University of Alberta is not finished seeking government support of the programs at Augustana. University of Alberta provost and vice president academic Dr. Carl Amrhein told the Rotary Club of Camrose last week that the Government of Alberta is being asked to give serious consideration to a $40 million Augustana science lab renovation project. "The greatest limit on the capacity of Augustana now that the forum is open is in sciences," said Dr. Amrhein, "and since the sciences underpin much of what is the economy of rural Alberta that is particularly what we have placed in front of the ministers of Agriculture and Rural Development and Enterprise and Advanced Education. "We need the help of government to push this project forward." Dr. Amrhein said the current space crunch in the science labs is forcing Augustana to turn

Dr. Carl Amrhein intends to lobby the province for science lab funding.

away students it wishes it could accommodate. "Modern day science labs are

very different and the chair of science when we were here last Thursday (June 7 for the performing arts centre groundbreaking) remarked that it is very painful in recruiting students when they remark that their high schools have superior science labs to what they see here." The Government of Alberta decided to defer the science lab project at the time of the merger of the University of Alberta and Augustana until Augustana was able to build up the existing capacity, something it has now done. "We knew when Augustana joined the University that this was a concern," said Dr. Amrhein, "but there were so many issues that we were dealing with in 2003." Dr. Amrhein noted that the success that Augustana has been having is evidenced by the number of graduates who increasingly find themselves in leadership positions across the prairie provinces and beyond. "The capacity and success of this campus in producing those

people who are leading in the communities of Alberta is really very impressive. We think the Augustana Campus is leading the university in redefining undergraduate education. It continues to remind us that it is the experience of the student that defines the primary reason that we are funded by the provincial government. They (Augustana) continue to come up with new and innovative programs that then become exported to the rest of the University. We are proud of the fact our students played a critical role in the (City of Camrose) sustainability plan." Dr. Amrhein said a new two plus two agreement signed by the dean will allow students two take their first two years of a degree at Grande Prairie Regional College, then transfer to Augustana for their final two. "We see that migration from Grande Prairie Regional College to Augustana as part of a brilliant idea that is Campus, where the core has to be many opportunities for many students facing many different situations. Rural

students like Augustana because it is not as terrifying as the North Campus. The notion that they have to live in a dormitory on North Campus with shared bathrooms is just terrifying to them." Dr. Amrhein reiterated how proud he was to be part of the groundbreaking for the new performing arts centre on Augustana campus. "This facility is another example of the University and Camrose, and Camrose County working together for the benefit of everyone involved." Dr. Amrhein received the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit from the German Ambassador to Canada June 4. Known as the Bundesverdienstrkreuz, the German Order of Merit is the highest tribute the Federal Republic of Germany can pay to individuals for outstanding service to the nation. Dr. Amrhein helped foster the HelmholtzAlberta initiative, student exchanges between Alberta and German universities, and the German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research.

Letters to the Editor

RETIRING TEACHERS The Alberta Teachers' Association Battle River Local held a brunch at the Norsemen Inn June 9 to honour retiring teachers. Joining Vicky Radke (left) and Gloria Oberg (right) for a photo was ATA vice president Sharon Anderson. Retiring teachers who were unable to attend the brunch were Jim Ofrim, Barb Gibson, Larry Sorenson and Marlene Edwards.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Seeking a solution Disappointing information was contained in a letter published in the June 5th issue of The Booster. It was submitted by Leon Lohner of Camrose, a former and now retired teacheradministrator of Camrose Composite High School (CCHS). He is knowledgeable about Alberta’s apprenticeship programs. Mr. Lohner’s letter expressed deep concern about the recent decision to end the use of a journeyman instructor for food studies at CCHS. His concern stems from the fact that if students who are enrolled in Career and Technology Studies (which includes food studies) are taught by an instructor with journeyman status, they may be granted advanced credits when entering a post-secondary college but that chance disappears if the high school instructor is not a journeyman. In addition to food studies, Camrose Composite High School offers other Career and Technology Studies (CTS) which include construction technology, welding, automotives and cosmetology. While secure for the next school year, dwindling enrollment in the future could have similar consequences in those trade areas. Funding for education in Alberta, up to and including high school, is based on enrollment. Low enrollment in food studies at CCHS is therefore the reason that funding is no longer available for a journeyman instructor in that class. Just two years ago, a $10 million investment was made at our composite high school to provide a state-of-the-art expanded facility for teaching trades. How disappointing to learn there is a risk that it may not be used for that purpose. How ironic, too, when there are presently predictions of a serious manpower shortage in the trades sector in Alberta. So what can be done about it? Because funding is based on enrollment, the solution points to the need to recruit more students. From where could they come? Perhaps other schools might consider partnering with CCHS to provide trades training, for example: separate schools, private schools and home schooled students. Cooperative partnerships work well in enabling partners with limited resources to provide services that are out of reach for each on its own. In preparing to write this column, my research clarified that student population here and many other places is declining, that funding is based on enrollment, and that the enrollment in food studies is too low to justify the cost of a journeyman instructor. While it is acknowledged that a boost in enrollment would solve the problem, I found no evidence of initiatives being taken to recruit more students. My guess is that no one knows whose job that might be. CCHS has a service to sell: a $10 million first class training facility for Careeer and Technology Studies, a consistent reputation of awards-winning students in culinary arts and trades skills competitions and, until now, all trades instructors with journeyman status. Prospects for present and future employment in the trades sector are bright and the rate of pay is good. There are many reasons to buy the trades instruction available. What appears to be needed is at least one passionate sales person who wants to see CCHS utilized to its full potential and is willing and able to rally support from parents, students, educators, prospective employers, any citizen. Camrose is indeed an education centre, providing learning opportunities from kindergarten to university degrees. Let’s not have any gaps! What do you suggest?

Letters are welcomed but please limit them to 500 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only name of writer and city or town will be printed. Letters to third parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit for length, clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Support appreciated On behalf of the staff, volunteers, patrons and members of the Camrose and District Centennial Museum, I would like to thank City council for their generous financial support for the summer. The funding approved by City council will ensure that the museum is able to remain open and continue our mandate for another year, despite the unexpected loss of our Young Canada Works grant. The importance to the museum of ongoing community support in carrying out our mandate cannot be over stressed.

Thanks to grants from all three levels of government as well as private donations, the museum is able to give a handson history lesson to hundreds of school children on field trips each year, as well as provide a unique and interesting venue for local special events such as Canada Day, Founders Day and the Victim Services fundraiser. A look through the pages of our guest book shows that we receive numerous visitors each year, not only from the Camrose area but from across Canada and around the world. We have a good working relationship with the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin and our steam tractor has represented Camrose in the Calgary Stampede Parade. We also contribute many unique entries to events such as the Big Valley Jamboree Parade and, most recently, the Verdun Historical Society reunion. Our own annual event, Machinery Day, is always well attended and extensively reported on by local media because it gives members of the community a chance to see things that they don't ordinarily see, or haven't

seen for a long time, not as static displays behind glass, but as live working implements. Even after nearly five decades, we are still receiving donations of items from people wishing to preserve the legacy of their ancestors. These valuable antiques were once the property of our community members and local businesses, and we have been entrusted to maintain and preserve not only the material artifacts, but the stories that they represent in the area to which they belong. Our small but passionate crew of staff and volunteers works diligently to achieve this mandate. The museum is open to the public weekdays from 10 to 5 until Aug. 31, and our venues are available for rental by community groups. We regret not being open more days but we continue to have personnel and funding shortages. While you're here, don't forget to sign our guest book. See you at the museum! Will Voth, president Camrose and District Centennial Museum Society

Master Gardener program to be offered

The beautiful grounds at the Camrose Railway Station.

The Organic Master Gardener program will be offered at the Camrose Railway Station Museum and Park this coming January. The Station has partnered with Gaia College of Victoria, B.C., to offer the unique curriculum for the program. Organic agriculture generally means gardening without the use of chemicals, pesticides, and other substances that could contribute to soil, plant, and human health and/or environmental concerns. Organic gar-

dening embraces a more ecological paradigm in all its practices. The Station will offer the Organic Master Gardener program students a perfect opportunity to experience and experiment with organic growing methods. Through education and volunteer hours the participants will acquire an Organic Master Gardener certificate and will benefit from the sense of accomplishment in learning about organic horticulture and giving back to their community.

The Organic Master Gardener Program will begin Wednesday evenings starting in January, 2013. This is an incredible local learning opportunity that Station volunteers are thrilled to introduce to the community. If you wish to learn more about this exciting learning opportunity or wish to register for the courses, please contact Eleanor White at white.eleanore@gmail.com

Burns commits to Mt. Royal University By Murray Green Former Camrose Kodiaks' forward Jeremy Burns will be playing for the Mount Royal University Cougars next fall.

program. Mount Royal will be very happy with Jeremy and his future contributions to their hockey team.” Jeremy played for the Brooks Bandits the last two seasons. He played four seasons in the Alberta Junior Hockey League totalling 252 games played. He started his junior career in Camrose spending two seasons with the Kodiaks before an off season trade

brought him to Brooks. In his second season with the Bandits, Jeremy was named an assistant captain and helped lead the team to its first championship. He received the Stewy Stewart Award from the AJHL in 2011 and the Tyler Hemsing Memorial Scholarship from Dave and Karen Hemsing in 2011 and 2012.

City council has advanced Mayor Marshall Chalmers as a candidate for the vacancy on the Federation of Canadian Municipality's (FCM) standing committee responsible for safety and crime prevention. Mayor Chalmers told council June 11 he feels he can handle the additional time commitment. "The committee meets three times a year, with one of those meetings being in Ottawa." Chalmers served as Camrose chief of police from 1999 to December 31, 2007. He also served as president of the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police for almost seven years and was director of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. Councillor Earle Berry said it is nice to see the mayor step out of the box and do things in other areas besides Camrose. Councillor Gerry Galenza said the mayor's appointment would be an opportunity for Camrose to wave its flag and have its voice heard at the national level. "Anytime you have the opportunity to move up the ladder you take it," he said. Past FCM presidents from Camrose have included Dr. Mac Smith and Mona Sparling. The cost of the appointment would be shared by FCM and the City of Camrose. With close to 2,000 members, FCM represents the interests of Canadian municipalities on policy and program matters that fall within federal jurisdiction. Members include Canada's largest cities, small urban and rural communities, and 21 provincial and territorial municipal associations.

Artwalk highlights local artists By Murray Green

View the top artists from the area during the 17th annual Camrose Artwalk. Paintings, photographs, iron work, sculptures and pottery are featured by the Camrose Arts Society at nine locations throughout the city until Friday, August 31. "City Center Camrose started the artwalk 17 years ago and organized it for three years until the arts society took it over," said Camrose Artwalk coordinator Jane Cherry-Lemire. "We still have some businesses and artists who have been involved with it every year since it was started. Businesses open up their walls or windows for us to showcase work from local and visiting artists." Major cities have artwalks that go from gallery to gallery. "We don't have art galleries in Camrose, so we are fortunate that businesses support us by opening up space to display art work," said Jane. " The art walk has two main display periods. The first set of art is on display until July 13, and the second session runs from July 18 to August 31. "Organizers for the last 10 years of the event have been Jane, Sally McIntyre, Barb Werner and in previous years, Audrey Pfannmuller. This year, Debra Hannaford has given us a hand." Several clubs have joined for displays at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre. "New this year is the fact we have four different clubs at the same time. I'm hoping that they will mingle and it may lead to the various clubs working together in the future," Jane said. "The Mirror Lake, Bashaw and Bittern Lake art clubs, along with the Camrose Camera Club will have displays in the main Kinsmen Hall at the Chuck MacLean Art Centre (CMAC). Diane McLaren, Rita Sherman and Yvonne King will also have their work on display. We should have more than 100 paintings and photographs on show." In August, Blue Skies Studio from Wetaskiwin will present Art of Alberta. "Normally, they are at the Reynolds Museum, but we were able to have them come over here," said Jane. "They will have a lot of items on display." Continued on page 13

Founders Days dessert theatre planned By Dan Jensen

The 2012 Camrose Founders Days celebration will have a new twist. The Camrose Founders Days committee is partnering with the Boomtown Trail and Camrose Railway Station to put on a dessert theatre production entitled Hello Dollies at the Bailey Theatre on August 11. "We think it is going to be a fun evening," said Camrose Founders Days committee secretary Janine Carroll. "We're expecting a good turnout." Hello Dollies is a three-part drama/documentary in which three performers will be telling the real-life experiences of women who lived in the early part of the 1900s. Glenys Smith will play the role of Myrtle Zimmerman, a pioneer woman who immigrated to Alberta from Nebraska in 1901 when she was 10 years old, and spent most of her childhood and married life in the Kelsey area. "The story has been developed from Myrtle's own handwritten diaries, allowing the audience an intimate connection to the pioneer experience," said Carroll. Nora Smith, from Delburne, will play Miss Alice Rogers, a telephone agent for the Alberta Government Telephones in 1908. Mary Ann Lippiatt, from New Sarepta, will play the role of Lily Pitthouse, the daughter of George Pitthouse, the founder of Hay Lakes. "Lily is leaving the family farm to move onto her own farm and reminisces about her father's life and life in the early 1900s," said Carroll. Each performance will take about half an hour, after which those attending will have an opportunity to enjoy desserts served by The Lefse House. Funds raised from the Hello Dollies dessert theatre will go to the Camrose Railway Station.

Young scorer signs with Camrose Kodiaks

Summer is a criminal’s busy season A security system is a year-round solution

By Murray Green

Tanner Macmaster has signed with the Camrose Kodiaks organization for next season. “Tanner has a very bright future ahead of him and he has the potential to one day play pro if he continues developing and working hard,” said Boris Rybalka, Kodiaks' general manager and coach. Tanner is a highly skilled 16-year-old forward from Calgary. He collected 39 points last season in 32 games with the Calgary Buffaloes midget triple-A hockey club. "These are very good stats, but what is even more impressive is that Tanner did this as a 15-yearold hockey player in midget triple-A. We are very excited to have the opportunity to develop Tanner and see how he progresses during the year,” Rybalka added. Boris feels that Macmaster has the type of skill and hockey sense that past players such as Joe Colborne, Mike Connolly and Mason Raymond had when they arrived in Camrose. “He definitely can see the play develop and every time he is on the ice he will be a threat to either set someone up or have a scoring opportunity,” said Boris. The Kodiaks open training camp on August 24, but Macmaster will be in Camrose on August 13 for conditioning camp, along with 60 other athletes in order to prepare for next season.

Special Olympics ball tournament Sunday By Dan Jensen

The emphasis will be on fun when Camrose Special Olympics hosts a ball tournament on the Kin 1 ball diamond starting at 8:30 this Sunday. "We're going to have two teams from Olds, one from Lacombe and our own two teams," said Camrose Special Olympics ball team head coach Lex Noseworthy. "Altogether we expect to have more than 60 athletes participating." Camrose Special Olympics hosted the tournament for the first time last summer with good attendance. "We're calling it a fun tournament so in essence everyone is a winner," said Noseworthy. "The

competitive tournament will be held at St. Paul at the end of the season." The tournament action will be followed by a supper and a dance. Camrose Special Olympics organizers see the tournament being stretched into a two-day affair as it becomes better known with the Special Olympics affiliates across the province. "It is very popular with all the players," said Noseworthy. "They like attending the practices but there is nothing like having real competition." Anyone who is willing to assist with the tournament as a volunteer worker is encouraged to call Noseworthy at 780-6723191.

An exceptional Native Art Show, Our Wilderness is Wisdom will be available for viewing before, after and between dance performances. The Camrose Arts Society and Railway Station partner to bring this engaging celebration to Camrose and hope many residents and visitors will enjoy the glimpse into Aboriginal heritage. Generous funding from the Celebrate Canada Program and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts allows the partners to share this first class event with Camrosians. An estimated combined audience of 800 attended the 2011 shows.

Kezama invited to U16 camp in Camrose By Murray Green

Taylor Kezama played well at the Alberta Winter Games last February, even though she had a cast on her wrist. She received an invitation to the girls' U16 hockey camp held in Camrose this summer. On defence for the Camrose Bulldogs double-A team, she isn't afraid to take on the big boys in bantam hockey. "It is challenging playing against boys and it has made me a better player. You learn to work harder and skate faster," said Taylor. "The downside is that it is rougher and you receive more injuries. It has made me tougher. I only play girls' hockey in a spring league." Taylor had her spring season cut short when she fell over backwards and hurt her ankle. "I hope the cast can come off soon, so I can train prior to the camp." Taylor was playing for the Central Alberta Rage, based out of Wetaskiwin. The 14-year-old played hard, stay-at-home defence at the Alberta Winter Games. Although her team lost several close matches at the Winter Games, Taylor and three of her teammates were selected to try out for Team Alberta. "The scouts picked 60 of the top players at the Games and asked them to attend a summer camp. They will then pick the top 20 or 22 players for the U16 team," explained Taylor. "My goal now is to make the top 20. I think I'm in the top half: it will be close. I'm not sure how good some of the other girls are. I know I will have to work hard. It depends on how fast I heal and if I have enough time to prepare and be in good shape." Making the U16 team is the first goal on Taylor's list of things to do. Her ultimate goal is playing in the Olympics. "This is the first step to making the U18 team. From there, you want to keep improving and I would like to go to the Olympic Games and represent Canada." Taylor enjoys stopping the other team, rather than collecting points. "I like to shoot, but I don't get a lot of points. I want to work on improving my stops and starts to be in a better position for plays," said Taylor. When not playing hockey, Taylor enjoys baseball, basketball, track and crosscountry running.

Speakers provide inspiration at Magnetsigns event By Dan Jensen

Camrose residents and Magnetsigns franchisees received a huge dose of inspiration from Colin and Julie Angus, Ray Titus and Jennifer Botterill in a Magnetsign presentation entitled The Winning Secret: Building a Vision For Success at the Augustana Faith and Life Centre chapel June 9. Colin and Julie Angus recounted their 2004 to 2006 adventures that resulted in Colin become the first person to circumnavigate the globe by human power and the two being named National Geographic Adventurers of the Year in 2007. The trip started with Julie and Colin cycling from Vancouver to Alaska. "The second day of cycling in BC was one of the hardest of the entire trip," said Colin. After arriving at Alaska, Julie returned home to plan the rest of the expedition while Colin crossed the Bering Sea in a rowboat with friend Todd Harvey. "It was hard to make big progress against the big waves," said Colin. "We spent one month crossing the Sea." Entering Siberia, Colin and Harvey were faced with minus 55 degree temperatures and at one time became separated by a whiteout. "We traversed 4,000 km in the heart of winter," said Colin. "We learned the importance of being prepared, having enough to eat and drink and scheduling time for communication." Colin and Julie reunited in Moscow and proceeded to cycle 5,472 km across Europe to Lisbon, Portugal, where they boarded a rowboat for a crossing of the Atlantic in a seven metre, technologically-equipped row boat they had found on the Internet. "We rowed for 18 to 20 hours a day," said Julie. "We rowed 10,000 km over a span of 146 days." The couple stressed the importance of prioritizing and dealing with the biggest risks first. At first they were so caught up in their problems with the boat's malfunctioning GPS that they narrowly avoided being run over by a freighter. "After that we kept diligent watch," said Colin. While confident in their own abilities, Colin and Julie ran into their share of distractors, including the president of

Colin and Julie Angus talked about their 2004 to 2006 cycling, rowing and hiking adventure during a June 9 presentation at the Augustana Faith and Life Centre entitled The Winning Secret, Building a Vision for Success. The presentation was part of a Magnetsigns conference held at the Camrose Resort Casino June 8 to 10.

Ray Titus, founder and owner of the United Franchise Group.

the Ocean Rowing Society, who expressed doubts as to whether or not they knew what they were doing. "He didn't know the preparation we had put in so he was in no position to judge," said Julie. "In the end you are the only one who can make decisions as to whether you can do something or not." The trip concluded with a 8,304 km bike ride from Costa Rica to their Vancouver home. Colin and Julie stressed the importance of taking baby steps every day. "It is hard to grasp the enormity of doing something

like this," said Colin, "but if you focus on the immediate the little things will add up." Ray Titus, founder and CEO of the United Franchise Group, a global franchising group with 1,400 franchises in 53 countries, stressed the

importance of planning for success and envisioning where you eventually want to be. "Whatever you want to do can be accomplished if you write it down," he said. "Dreams are goals that were never written down."

Titus said it is incumbent upon owners of companies to communicate their vision and plan to employers to make sure everyone knows what they have to do in order for the company to achieve. "You need to take pride in what you want to be and where you want to go as a business." Jennifer Botterill told her story about a 14-year career in which she won three Olympic gold medals as a member of the national women's hockey team. Botterill began dreaming about becoming an Olympic after having a conversation with her dad, a sports psychologist, who encouraged her to set a goal and strive towards it. "It was after talking to him that I began to think about the possibility of making the 1998 team," she said. "I didn't want to look back afterwards and wish I had done something to make the team." Botterill said it is important to focus on those things that we can control. "We can control our performance by striving to be our personal best every day." Botterill said the 2002 season was one of many challenges for the Canadian team, which lost to the rival Americans eight times in a row before the Salt Lake City Olympics. "We realized going into the Olympics that we had not brought out best performance but we believed that we could be successful," she said. "We felt that we were prepared. Every person on the team was there to help the other person. We had the belief that we can't always choose the role we play but we can choose how we play it." Botterill said the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 far exceeded her expectations in terms of the energy and support they received from Canadians. "The Olympics were not just about the athletes performing well, they were about everyone from coast to coast who embraced the Olympic spirit." Botterill is currently an International Olympic Committee athlete ambassador, a hockey analyst, and an advocate for a number of important charities and healthy lifestyle initiatives. Camrose is the headquarters for Magnetsigns, which has more than 130 franchises across Canada and the United States.

Bjornson family sends hockey players to summer camp By Murray Green

Con Bjornson was a great volunteer for his favourite hockey team, the Camrose Kodiaks. "The Camrose Kodiaks are very proud to continue a hockey school scholarship fund that was put in place in memory of Con Bjornson by his family," said Boris Rybalka, general manager and coach of the junior club. On behalf of the Bjornson family in memory of Con, this year there will be 15 hockey school registrations given to

children to attend the Kodiaks' annual hockey school from August 20 to 24 at no charge. “We are honoured to be part of this memorial scholarship fund that has been started. Mr. Bjornson loved this community, and his family,� added Boris. This legacy will continue in honour of Con Bjornson for many years because of the scholarships. Each athlete at the school will experience ice sessions every day. They will gain valuable exposure to a coaching

environment where every athlete is given a game scenario. Giving them a better understanding of their role and responsibilities on the ice. This will maximize onice performance. On-ice sessions will focus on giving the participants insight into the level of commitment that is required to play this great game. These sessions will cover the whole game environment. Dry land sessions will cover mental preparation, physical preparation, diet and nutrition, injury and recovery, together

with the importance of education and hockey. This will help athletes develop and understand the importance of physical development and post-practice and game exercises. The camp from August 20 to 24 will be divided into three groups. Group A day school ages are from five to seven. The school will consist of three games of 3-on-3 hockey with teaching, five days of off-ice training and two days of drills on ice.

Group B day school ages are for eight to 10. Group C day school ages are for 11 to 12. However, Group C drills will be more intense. Each student will receive on-ice instruction as well as office conditioning and training. Past and present Kodiaks will be instructing. Each session will have a limit of 30 players. To inquire about receiving a hockey school scholarship or to register for the school email hockey@camrosekodiaks.com or phone 780-679-2603.

Kodiaks add Fleck to coaching staff By Murray Green

Former Camrose Kodiaks' forward Jason Fleck is returning to the junior hockey club as an assistant coach this fall. General manager and coach Boris Rybalka expanded his staff to include two members of the Fleck family. “Jason played with the Kodiaks and won championships and he knows what it takes to be successful and how to become a champion," said Boris. "He was a great leader when he played the game and he will be a great leader as a coach.” Jason is the son of current Kodiak's coach Doug Fleck. “In this business you need to surround yourself with good quality people and people who you can trust. He is that type of person,” Boris added. With the addition of Jason Fleck, the Kodiaks have solidified their coaching staff with Doug Fleck, Blair Becker, Boris Rybalka and Jason Fleck. The Kodiaks' training camp opens on August 24 in the EnCana Arena.

A charming arch separates the living room from the kitchen. The main floor bathroom contains a newer tub, tile flooring and a stylish pedestal sink. The

master bedroom has a new wardrobe unit that is included with the sale. A second good-sized bedroom completes the main level. The basement is finished with a comfortable living room, two additional bedrooms, a laundry area and a three-piece bathroom with a shower. A beautiful huge wooden deck at the rear entrance is ideal for barbecues and entertaining. It leads to a large backyard with great open space.

Purple Martin geo-locating devices successfully installed

For the treasures in life.

THIRTY BIRDS OUTFITTED A team of scientific researchers, led by Dr. Kevin Frasor from York University in Toronto, and John Tautin, from the Purple Martin Conservative Association from Erie, Pennsylvania, captured 30 local birds and on each installed a mini-geolocating device. Data gathered will provide a greater understanding of the birds' migration route, tendencies and information about where they winter for five or more months in the Amazon basin in Brazil, South America. Tom Tomaszewski, top photograph, installs a special door on a purple martin condominium enabling the capture of the birds. Right, Dr. Frasor installs a one-gram, nickle-sized geo-locator on a female martin.

Protect the moments that mean the world

Kodiaks will be tangling with the Whitecourt Wolverines next season By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks will have a new opponent this fall in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. The Whitecourt Wolverines will be in the northern division of the league after the AJHL approved the relocation of the St. Albert Steel franchise to Whitecourt. Greg Parks and Brent Stark agreed on the merger of the former Steel and Wolverines organizations. “We feel that Whitecourt has within it a quality organization that can do nothing but help us hit the ground running,” said Greg. “The Wolverines have proven that they are a championship team off the ice and I welcome their help and support as the newest members to the AJHL.” The successful junior-B franchise should transfer to the AJHL. "I think they should do fine in Whitecourt. They have a 1,000 seat arena which they should draw well as they have oil and forestry there," said Kodiaks' coach and general manager Boris Rybalka. "I heard that they are getting a new arena in two years

so that will make a difference. With St. Albert struggling for attendance the move was foreseeable and now it gives teams an opportunity to play two games when they go north to Grande Prairie." Boris said they will have the community support behind them and financial support, so they will do fine. "They are not starting from scratch and they take over St. Albert, the player list and CHA list, so they will not be an expansion team but a veteran team." Brent Stark of the Wolverines expressed his excitement with the news. “I have been asked a lot in recent weeks what we thought about the proposed move of the junior-A club to our community. I have always said that we wanted junior-A hockey here and it is finally going to happen. We have developed a great team here in Whitecourt that has always been based on a junior-A type structure. The inclusion of our people in the overall running of the club was a simple one to make and we are glad to be a part of it.” The Wolverines named its

management and administration staff: Brent as president and governor; Greg Parks as vicepresident, general manager and director of hockey operations; Joey Bouchard as head coach; Tracy Ross as vice-president of club operations and Marc Chayer as director of club operations and community relations. The team colours will be red, white and black. “Last season we really began to appreciate the work of minor hockey in Whitecourt,” said Brent. “It was with that in mind that we wanted to salute the work so many volunteers and parents put into minor hockey, so we decided to change our colours to match theirs.” The Whitecourt region is an up and coming community. “The Mayor (Trevor Thain) and council, along with Jay Granley and his staff, have been a silent, but a key component in all of this,” said Brent. “We have met repeatedly on the organization's behalf and have had nothing but support from the mayor.”

FATHER'S DAY FUN Naomi Goliboski bounces on a ball during the Father's Day Fun Fest at the Camrose Community Centre June 17. The fourth annual event was put on by the Camrose Boys and Girls Club and the Family Violence Action Society.

Camrose rural entrepreneurs and small businesses in the surrounding communities will receive enhanced advice and support with the grand opening of a new Rural Alberta Business Centre (RABC), located at 4336B-41 Street. The business centre will provide one-stop access to business information and advice, research services, seminars and workshops. The RABC is staffed by a small business advisor Louise Jones. "We are sharing the same location with Creating Pathways for Entrepreneurial Families with Judy Manning and Shauna Feth," said Louise Jones, small business advisor. The Camrose RABC is managed by Community Futures East Central and supported by the City of Camrose and the Government of Alberta. "Small business in Alberta is the heart and soul of the economic community, which is alive and very well in Alberta," said Karen Wronko, director of metro regions and small business support for the RABC. "Our province's small businesses can be virtually found in every sector. They employ countless Albertans and are the economic engines that drive our communities, including Camrose."

Eight business centres will be located throughout rural Alberta, as part of a three-year pilot program that partners local community organizations with the government. "Alberta's small businesses contribute about 30 per cent of the gross domestic product and are responsible for 37 per cent of all private sector employment in the province," added Karen. "Small businesses make up about 96 per cent of all the businesses in the province. "The government recognizes that supporting small businesses, particularly in rural Alberta, is critical to maintain the growth of the province's economy. The opening of this RABC, along with Creating Pathways, will benefit Camrose and local entrepreneurs because they will have someone to talk to face to face in their community." The pilot program will help small businesses access information and advice so they can make informed business decisions. "We scoured the province for rural locations and Camrose was a good fit. Some businesses go out of date, like making buggy whips and typewriters, so businesses have to reinvent themselves. The trick is to create new business and help people get started," said Lloyd Steir, vice-dean of the University of Alberta School of Busi-

ness. "We know when businesses start, people don't have all of the information they need. One mistake can make a big difference and we are here to help people." The business centres will provide services to entrepreneurs, small business owners and managers at all stages of the business life cycle, from start-up to expansion and succession planning. "I'm thrilled to be involved with the Alberta Business family Institute because it gets me involved with the business community to try and regain the Alberta advantage," said Grant Lovig, chair of ABFI. "We help families and the rural area is very important to us. We feel we are having a positive impact. We just need to do more of it. We want to ensure that business families continue to be strong." The Camrose RABC is a partnership between the Government of Alberta, Community Futures East Central Alberta and the City of Camrose. The province-wide $2 million pilot program is being funded over three years by the Government of Alberta. More information about the program is available at treasuryboard.alberta.ca online

AJHL will begin 49th season with 16 teams Sept. 7 By Murray Green

Hockey season is only three months away. The Alberta Junior Hockey League season begins its 49th season on Sept. 7. The AJHL held its annual general meeting in Red Deer on May 25 and 26 to plan for the fall. In the 2012-13 season, the AJHL will ice 16 teams in an unbalanced schedule of 60 games each. The full schedule will be announced in late June. Teams will have to operate with a reduced number of 20year-old players. The maximum number of nine players has been reduced to a maximum of six players dressed for a game. The reduction will take effect immediately. "This is a move in the right direction for league parity," said

Camrose Kodiaks' coach Boris Rybalka. "At the deadline you cannot stack your team with 20year-old players. You will only be able to have six, so you will have to play with fewer during the year to make room at the deadline or trade a 20-year-old at the deadline for the one that you bring in." This will keep some teams from stacking their team with veterans for playoff runs. "For the Kodiaks, it does not affect us because we are usually a young team," added Boris. "Our philosophy is to move players to the next level as quickly as possible so we are usually young. I think this is a great move for the league because it should make more teams competitive, which is the ultimate goal for great hockey

every time you play. It is great for the fans." Boris added that it is good for the development of hockey. "I also believe this will make for more exposure to the NHL and NCAA because our league now opens up more spots for younger players, which is who the scouts like to come out and watch." Coaches and general managers around the AJHL will have to choose carefully which 20-yearold players they decide to keep. "There should be some good ones from which to choose and again this will only make the league more competitive," said Boris. Hockey Canada has approved a two-year extension of the Junior A Supplement Pilot Project. The AJHL, along with four-member

leagues with the Canadian Junior Hockey League, launched the pilot project at the start of the 2010-11 season. The supplement is a joint effort to eliminate violence and bullying from junior A hockey. The sixth annual showcase weekend will be held in Spruce Grove from Sept. 27 to 29. The Lloydminster Bobcats and Bonnyville Pontiacs will play during the 2013 Hockey Day in Canada event in Lloydminster next February. The Alberta Junior Hockey League will launch the AJHL Network, which will include all 16 team websites. The network will set a new precedent for junior A hockey and is designed to meet the growing needs of the fans and stakeholders.

The development committee will remain active for next season. The committee has been given the task of exploring a variety of categories, including a new playoff format. The committee was appointed to evaluate hockey operations, rosters and playing rules. The league will continue to operate under the direction of chairman Greg Wood and league president Craig Cripps. The staff currently includes former Camrose resident George McCorry (vice-president, officiating), Ryan Bartoshyk (vicepresident, marketing), Charla Flett (communications and statistics), Ken Dentzien (referee assignor) and Bob Clark (special advisor).

Dallas Edward Simons Dallas Edward Simons was born on March 16, 1986 in Daysland, AB. We remember Dr. McKinnon telling us by the heartbeat and her gut feeling we were having a girl, then we heard her say, “Oh my goodness, it’s a BOY!” Well, we were thrilled and had picked out the name Dallas months ahead of time after meeting our babysitter Dallas. Ryan called him Baby Dallas when I was carrying him. Dallas was an excellent baby, content and only crying when he needed to be fed or his diaper changed. He never cried to be cuddled, because he knew no one could keep their hands off him – he was so happy and cuddly. He quickly picked up the nicknames Dal, D and, later in life, Dallie. Even as he got older, we could have a house full of kids and Dallas would all of a sudden disappear. He would go climb into his bed and be fast asleep. He was always one who needed his sleep. He took all of his schooling, from playschool to Grade 12, in Sedgewick. He never really liked school other than to socialize. He was even known to use our typewriter to change a few of the marks on his report card, but it didn’t type the same – I’ll give him an “A+” for effort! In Grade 10, he had the opportunity to go to Minnesota with Ryan to help with a mechanic job, but after a month of being on the road with Ryan, he was ready to go back to school to get caught up on socializing. His first jobs were working at Watkins Diesel, KalTire and Cross Country Sales, then he went on to get his first year of autobody while working at Killam Autobody. As his life went on, he tried many different things – maintenance on trucks, carpentry and oil rigs, but decided he wanted to be at home more, so his last job was siding houses. He got into racing motocross at the young age of seven which took us all over Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, where he met all kinds of new friends. We quickly found out how competitive he was as he grew and went through the different classes. He won a trophy at just about every race. Whether it was first or third, he was always excited and thinking of his next race and how he could practice at the track at home or in Kinsella to be faster. Then Ryan got an idea to get into snowcross and, of course, Dallas and Mikel were right behind. Dallas wanted to do whatever Ryan did. And, as a family, we loved to snowmobile, so it sounded like a great idea. Off we were to the snowcross races that took us all over Alberta, Saskatchewan and into the United States. We met a lot of wonderful people, and Dallas found a lot of new friends. He was a very competitive rider and would push the limits at every race. Dallas loved his brothers, Ryan and Mikel, and was always there to help when they got hurt, building forts, playing in the sandbox, building a go-cart, working on a bike, a snowmobile or fixing vehicles. Dallas worked with our family’s company doing things from helping wash trucks and helping Dad with mechanical things to swamping on the picker trucks. Dallas loved to go fishing, quadding, snowboarding, camping, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, which we did as a family. He was fortunate enough to have friends who also loved to hunt, fish and spend time outdoors, which he did as much as possible. Lots of times we wouldn’t see or hear from Dallas for a few days, then there he was. The first thing he would do when he came was holler, “HELLO!” and head to the fridge looking for something to eat, always saying, “No, I’ll make it, Mom”, which was usually a sandwich that included a cheese slice and lots mayonnaise. On October 12, 2007, a handsome son Chase was born, and we saw a side of Dallas that we hadn’t seen before. Just like any father, he couldn’t have been more proud of his new son and worried about him all the time. Then on September 24, 2011, he married Kaley whom he loved very much and together they have a very handsome son Kestin, of whom he was very proud and protective. We are very lucky to have such wonderful memories of Dallas, but they will never replace the real person. As all parents, we worried about getting that phone call from a police officer telling you something has happened to one of your children, but I guess you never know. Dallas and Everett weren’t doing anything wrong, just an evening fishing trip, then a horrible accident. We truly believe they are HEROS! Neither one of them would have left the other, even if it cost them their lives. That’s just the kind of people they were. We will always love you and miss you, Dallas. Memorial donationss have been made in memory of Dallas to CASDDA (Canadian Search and Disaster Dogs Association), Camrose Fire Department and Rescue, and to trust funds at Battle River Credit Union and ATB that were set up for Chase and Kestin. We would like to say a heartfilled “THANK YOU!” to EVERYONE for their help, support, hugs, words of kindness, to restaurants, church groups, relatives, friends and strangers for all the food and beverages, and to the ladies who spent days organizing food and making sure there was hot coffee and food from early morning until late at night, to gas stations that donated gas and gift cards to those who brought their boats, argos, watercrafts, canoes, motorbikes and quads. Thank you to those who flew their planes over the lake searching, and all who searched on foot, time and time again, and to those who provided water, sewer services and porta potties, phone booster and an underwater camera. Thank you to family and friends who looked after Kestin and Chase and our yard and animals. Camrose Fire Department/Rescue put in long hours and never stopped looking or offering to help in any way. Thank you to the RCMP and the search and rescue helicopter. Thanks to Bob and Brenda – a very special couple from Edmonton whom we had never met. They learned the boys were missing from the newspaper and drove out not once, but twice in a day to tell us about and help us to get in contact with CASDDA, an organization that helped them recover their son Jeremy two years ago. We are very overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity from all. It’s been a family’s worst nightmare, but we know in our hearts, we all tried everything to find Dallas and Everett. Thank you all so much! – Bill, Denise, Ryan, Mikel, Chase, Kaley and Kestin Simons

CAMROSE & DAYSLAND

Jeanne Mary Kroetsch Jeanne Mary Kroetsch was born to Valentine Poepping and Alma Steil on May 20, 1933 in Strome, Alberta. Her job as a waitress in the Heisler Café drew her to the attention of Delmond Kroetsch. They married July 3, 1951. This union was blessed with six children. They led a busy life with multiple endeavors including coal mining, farming, trucking, school buses, mail routes and caterpillar work. Jeanne was a very ambitious wife, supporting Del in his businesses while she cared for the children, drove one of the school buses, tended a wellkept garden, cooked and baked all kinds of wonderful food, and kept a spotless house and yard. Del and Jeanne began practicing retirement in 1976, and a few years later became fulltime Arizona snowbirds each winter until Del’s passing in 2001. Jeanne enjoyed baking, cooking, knitting, crocheting, bridge, golf and caring for her grandchildren. After the death of Del and her daughter Kathy, Jeanne began to experience symptoms of dementia which by 2008, resulted in her needing assisted living. The disease progressed rapidly until the time of her passing. She spent the past two-and-a-half years at Eastview where she received wonderful attentive care and was as happy as one could be under the circumstances. Jeanne was predeceased by her husband Del; an infant son David; one daughter Kathy; one grandson; her parents; and one brother Norbert.

In loving memory of

Lydia Haselwood who passed away on June 19, 2011 Since Heaven has become your home I sometimes feel I’m so alone, And though we now are far apart You hold a big piece of my heart. I never knew how much I’d grieve When it was time for you to leave, Or just how much my heart would ache From that one fragment you would take. God lets this tender hole remain Reminding me we’ll meet again, And one day all the pain will cease When He restores the missing piece. He’ll turn to joy my every tear, With thoughts of you I hold so dear, It will become my special way To treasure our Reunion Day. Love from your husband, Tom

Army Cadets end year with ceremonial review By Dan Jensen

The 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadets wrapped up a year that was filled with field training, marksmanship, drills, and special trips with their annual ceremonial review and open house at the Camrose Community Centre May 29. "The Cadets were given the opportunity to learn, to experience, and to grow," said Captain Alex Boos. "They made friends, they challenged themselves and each other, and they received first hand knowledge of the training in which members of the Canadian Forces (CF), such as our affiliated unit, the South Alberta Light Horse, participate on a regular basis." Boos said he is proud of the work that the cadets have done in reaching their goals. "The cadets themselves set their goals high. Impressively, many set out to achieve those goals and beyond." The review was conducted by South Alberta Light Horse second in command Major Troy Steele, CD1, who was hand picked by the deputy commander of the National Command Element for the first rotation into Afghanistan, in 2006, to head the deployment of digital tools within the battle space, and to plan and execute all of the deputy commander's convoys. Upon his return to Canada he trained future HQ elements in the use of the new digital command posts, and became a recognized expert in the digital battlefield. In 2009 he was knighted in England as part of the International Templar Movement in recognition of his charitable work locally in the preservation of Alberta history, and internationally in his support of overseas orphanages. The 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps was officially stood up on September 1, 2002, after two years of parading as a satellite platoon with 1390 (Red Deer) RCACC. The Corps, which is affiliated with South Alberta Light Horse "B" Squadron, in Edmonton, has been led since 2002 by 2nd Lieutenant Linda Lorente, Lieutenant Cori Boos, Major Bill Hart, CD1, and Captain Alex Boos, CD. The 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadets is sponsored by Camrose Branch 57 of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Members of the 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps, Camrose, salute Major T. Steele, Regimental Second in Command with the "B" Squadron of Alberta Light Horse, at the Camrose cadet corps' annual ceremonial review, held May 29 at the Camrose Community Centre open house. The Camrose Army Cadets had a busy year in which they made friends, challenged themselves and each other, and received first hand knowledge that members of the Canadian Forces receive.

The most outstanding cadet award was presented to Sgt. K. Scheerschmidt. Making the presentation was Royal Canadian Legion Branch 57 president Gordon Minnes.

MWO D. Pizzey received the Royal Canadian Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence. Presenting the award to Pizzey was Royal Canadian Legion Branch 57 president Gordon Minnes.

Camrose Spiral to attend World Skipping Championships By Dan Jensen

Myles Bogstie will be wearing Team Canada colours at the World Skipping Championships in Tampa, Florida, this August. The 18-year-old member of the Camrose Spirals qualified for the championships' masters and team competitions with strong performances at the Canadian Skipping Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick, May 18-20. Bogstie was one of seven members of the Camrose Spirals to attend the event. "As an individual he competed as a member of the Spirals but his team was one from Quebec," said Camrose Spirals coach/manager Janine Carroll. The championships were so important to Bogstie that he missed his High School graduation at Bawlf in order to attend. "It was his only chance to qualify for the world's," said Carroll. Bogstie will be flying to Montreal once school is out to join his Quebec teammates in preparation for the world championships, just as he did over the Easter break in preparation for the Canadian. "He'll be staying with the families of the Quebec skippers, at least two of whom speak English," said Carroll. The world skipping championships are held once every two years for athletes who are 15 years of age and over.

Myles Bogstie performs a routine at the Canadian championships.

This year's event is expected to draw more than 1,000 athletes from 25 to 30 countries, including 95 from Canada. "Skipping isn't an Olympic sport so the world championships is the pinnacle," explained Carroll. "To attend and have success at the world's you need to train about 30 hours per week, a time commitment that is similar to the Olympians. For those who have made it to this level it is a full-time job."

Bogstie was happy that his overall score in the masters' competition in Moncton tied him with the athlete who was a six-time Canadian champion, but knows he will be up against some formidable opponents at the world's, some of whom could be three years older than he. Two of the attributes on which he will be counting are a highly competitive nature and willingness to do whatever it takes to win.

"He joined our club when he was in Grade 9, which is testament to the fact that you don't have to start in the sport when you are six years of age to become an elite athlete," said Carroll. "He has worked very hard and is very passionate about the sport. He is skipping all the time." Bogstie's opportunity to compete with the Quebec team for a spot in the world championship came out of a long-standing relationship between that team and the Camrose Spirals. "We had an exchange with that team seven or eight years ago and the connection has continued to this day," explained Carroll. While Bogstie was happy with his own success at the Canadian, he was also thrilled with the success of Camrose Spirals teammates Olivia Mah, Tashina Bogstie, Brock Proctor, Taytem Syrnyk and Kaleigh Taschuk, who won the gold medal in the 15-17 mixed category. The team competed in four speed events – two of which were single rope and two of which were double dutch; and four freestyle events – two of which were single rope and two of which were double dutch. "It was the first year that all of them have been together, but three have been together for several years," said Carroll. The team has hopes of being able to qualify for the world championships in another two years' time. Continued on page 34

GMC Terrain More of everything

By Dan Jensen

The 2012 GMC Terrain at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC gives you greater fuel efficiency, more broad-shouldered style, more advanced powertrain technology, more up to the minute features, and more warranty protection. "It's a very impressive vehicle," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The GMC Terrain is winner of the Consumers' Digest Best Buy Award and a 2011 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Contemporary design

Visually, the Terrain cabin showcases the best in contemporary design with clean lines, refined shapes and premium textures. There's also an abundance of space here, so five adults can ride in comfort, even on longer journeys. Long-legged passengers will particularly appreciate Terrain's multi-flex rear seat, which slides forward and back up to 200 mm. The subtly-bolstered driver's seat strikes just the right balance of comfort and support, and the thick-rimmed wheel tilts and telescopes to help you find precisely the right driving position. Climate control and a standard air filtration system help everyone breathe easy, and cupholdlers are conveniently positioned in the centre console doors and rear centre armrest. Terrain is also designed for the unique requirements of modern life, with no fewer than four 12-volt power outlets for powering mobile phones, laptops and other elec-

tronic necessities. Large, clear analogue gauges are supplemented by a multi-function Driver Information Centre. There's even an oil life monitoring system that may help save you money by reducing oil change frequency, protect your engine from premature wear, and reduce your carbon footprint. Cargo

With Terrain, transporting cargo of all shapes and sizes is a breeze. Behind the MultiFlex second row seats there are almost 900 lites of space for groceries, luggage and sports gear. When you have bulkier items to contend with, the rear seats are a 60/40 split-folding design, so you can carry your cargo and up to two rear passengers at the same time. Or you can fold both seatbacks down and more than double the available cargo space to a very accommodating 1,809 litres. SLE-2 and SLT models also feature standard roof rails that make it easy to attach a variety of racks and cargo boxes. For even bigger challenges – hauling the boat or snowmobile up to the cottage, for instance – Terrain is rated to tow trailers up to 1,588 kg when properly equipped.

Performance

mere 6.1 litres per 100 km on the highway. Drivers looking for even more muscle will gravitate to the available direct-injected 3.0 litre V6, which puts out 264 horsepower and 222 pounds-feet or torque. A sophisticated fourwheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS ensure that Terrain's handling and braking are a match for its engine performance.

Terrain blends the utility of an SUV with on-road dynamics that will please any enthusiastic driver. With a standard 182-horsepower direct-injected engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, Terrain's acceleration is spirited. Its efficiency is impressive, too, with fuel consumption of just 9.2 litres per 100 km in the city and a

When it comes to entertainment, information and communication, the GMC Terrain gets straight As. Features include Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, a CD stereo with MP3 playback, a colour touch screen that features album art display, six speakers, a USB port and Sirius Satellite Radio.

Keeping you connected

tight parking spaces has never been easier than it is with Terrain's standard rear vision camera with display in the seven-inch colour touch-screen of the audio system. It also takes the stress out of hooking up a trailer. The available rear DVD entertainment system includes twin seatback-mounted colour screens, auxiliary audio/video inputs for gaming systems, a 40-gigabyte hard drive for downloading music files, and time shifting. It has your back

Think of Terrain as your high-tech steel-and-glass bodyguard. It's equipped to help you avoid danger, with four-wheel disc brakes, a StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and available intelligent all-

wheel drive that makes the most of available traction. It's on your side if a crash can't be avoided, protecting you with six standard airbags and a sturdy steel safety cage around the passenger compartment. SLT models also offer the additional reassurance of available lane departure warning and forward collision alert. You can even count on the Terrain to look after you when the collision is over. OnStar's Automatic Crash Navigation feature informs a trained advisor who can then dispatch the emergency services you may need directly to your location. You can see the 2012 GMC Terrain at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC, 3850-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780672-2355 and ask for a friendly sales professional.

Martha's Table searches for new lunch location By Murray Green

After 14 years, the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church will no longer be hosting the Martha's Table lunch meals twice a week in Camrose. Volunteers from the church will still be helping at other Martha's Table locations. However, the original home of Martha's Table is stepping aside as hosts to allow other churches an opportunity to house the program in its kitchen. "St. Francis made a choice. After 14 years of hosting Martha's Table twice a week, it was just time for someone else to step up and take their turn," said Neighbor Aid board member Barbara Stokoe. "There are rumours out there that the health department shut down Martha's Table, there are problems between the church and Neighbor Aid or that the maintenance staff at St. Francis are upset at extra work the program imposes," said Pat Hagen, Neighbor Aid Center acting director on behalf of Jo-Ann Tweed. "These rumours are simply not true. It's just a natural progression to change venues and have other churches more involved. " About 21 churches and thousands of volunteers with Martha's Table work hard to provide food for those less fortunate. Every week, many hours are spent preparing soup and sandwiches for those who need a healthy lunch from noon to 1 p.m. St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church offered the service twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while Camrose United Church host on Wednesdays and Pleasant View Alliance Church on Saturdays. A program that operates twice a month has also started in New Norway for rural people. "Churches in the downtown area are being approached to host one day per week with teams from the 21 churches actually running

the project on a rotational basis," Pat added. St. Andrew's Anglican Church has already committed its facility for a one-year trial basis on Tuesdays, starting on September 4. "We fully appreciate what St. Francis has done. It seemed like since they were doing it, nobody else was going to jump in. We have a responsibility to jump in," said Barbara, who represents St. Andrew's. "I look at this as an opportunity. I look at what St. Francis has done for 14 years, and I realize that it is our turn. We don't have a lot of room in our kitchen for an extra fridge or freezer, but our parish looks at it as our responsibility to help in a program that is valuable in this community. We have to look at purchasing some folding chairs to make it easy for volunteers to set up, instead on moving the heavy chairs we have now." Pat at Neighbor Aid and Barry Stotts of St. Francis were two of the original people involved in starting the program. "We started the program because of the need. However, we honestly didn't think it would last this long," shared Barry. "The biggest thing that this program has done, is bring all of the churches together to provide this service. Our church has had some added expenses because we hosted the lunch for 14 years, but the decision was made because it was time to move on. The volunteers will still be in place. The whole concept was to have all churches involved, regardless of where the program was held." Although each church has enough volunteers, Martha's Table needs another church to host the program on Thursdays starting in September. While St. Francis will stop being hosts at the end of June, the United Church and Pleasant View Alliance Church

will continue throughout the summer months. "We are hoping that by getting the word out now, that we can have another church in place by September," said Carol Cherry, who represents Messiah Lutheran Church on the Neighbor Aid board. "People are away during the summer, so it is too hard to get everything in place until September." The program is more than about food. "Martha's Table provides two things. It allows people to have a lunch that they may not normally have access to, and it is a social outing," added Barry.

"It is a gathering place, a place to go for them to communicate with others." The program has never had a problem with the lack of volunteers. "It has worked unbelievably and some people have helped for 14 years from several churches. We may have different philosophies, but members of 21 different churches come together to make this program successful," added Barry. Two hard working volunteers, JoAnn Stang and Eugenie Player, are responsible for coordinating the volunteers four times a week. "JoAnn has been really

strong in her way of not asking, but telling people that they can do this in a positive way," explained Helen Trombley, a volunteer from St. Francis. "She has to make sure each church has everybody in place. We have never been short of workers. She also works hard, as well as delegates." Pat said that Eugenie hasn't been there as long, but she brings wonderful enthusiasm to the program. If a church is interested in hosting Martha's Table on Thursdays, they can contact Neighbor Aid at 780-679-3220 for more details.

Camrose bands receive top marks in Red Deer By Dan Jensen

It was a clean sweep for Camrose. The Camrose Grade 5/6 beginner honours band, the Charlie Killam Grade 7 concert band and the Charlie Killam Grade 8 concert received ratings of superior from adjudicators at the Alberta Band Association's Festival of Bands in Red Deer last month. "The fact that they were able to get the top mark really speaks to the musicianship of these students," said Charlie Killam band instructor Bob Bailey. "It is hard enough to get one rating of superior in a year, let alone three." The Camrose Grades 5/6 beginner honours band was the only band in its class to receive the mark of superior. "They put in a lot of work after the Camrose and District Music Festival in April," said Bailey. "They were meeting almost every day for two straight weeks, once at Camrose Composite High School, to get ready." The Camrose Grades 5/6 beginner honours band is comprised of students from Chester Ronning, Jack Stuart, Sparling and Ecole Sifton Schools who are

interested in choosing band as an option in Grade 7. "The students are referred by their band teachers based on their playing ability but also their attitude, effort and motivation," said Bailey. "Students work on the repertoire for the group in

their own band classes with their individual teachers, but much of the polishing and fine tuning is done in extra-curricular activities after school with myself, Tom Spila and Norm Skretting." The Charlie Killam Grade 7 and Grades 8/9 bands were

able to squeeze in extra rehearsals after the Camrose festival before school or during extended classes. Bands attending the Festival of Bands are graded by adjudicators on their tone, quality intonation (tuning), technique,

musicality and interpretation of the music they are playing. "They are asked to perform three pieces, one from a test list, one a director's choice and one a concert march," said Bailey. "From there they go on to another part which involves scales and rhythm tests for the Grades 5/6 and Grade 7 bands, and a sight reading test for the Grade 8 and 9 bands." As far as challenges go, the sight reading test might be the toughest. "They are given a brand new piece of music they have never seen before and are able to hear me talk about it for five minutes," said Bailey. "They can't practice it, they can just look at it, then play it right through, which in this case they did very well." Bailey has directed bands to superior awards at the provincial festival many times in his 29 years as a teacher at Charlie Killam. "We have had a pretty good track record but it has always been the result of a lot of hard work," said Bailey. "We are thankful that the Battle River School Division and Charlie Killam are supporting the fine arts and music."

Watching deputy mayor Ray McIsaac proclaim June as Stroke and Brain Injury Awareness Month in Camrose were: (left to right) Sandra McLay, Heather Hillis and Kim Fischbach. Stroke is an emergency and a brain attack which can happen to anyone at any time regardless of race, gender or age. Statistics show that there are 50,000 new Canadian stroke victims every year, and that there are approximately 350,000 Canadians who are living with the effects of stroke. Those who give to the Heart and Stroke Foundation help to improve outcomes for stroke survivors and give them longer, fuller lives. By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Stroke Recovery Association celebrated its first anniversary with a barbecue at the Camrose Fire Station June 14. The association provides support and encouragement to those who are recovering from a stroke. Meetings are held at the Camrose Fire Hall, 201 Mount Pleasant Drive, the second Thursday of each month beginning at 12 noon. "We've grown from the time we started," said Camrose Stroke Recovery Association peer support facilitator Sandra McLay. "We have had some drop out but we have added new members as well." Members have had the opportunity to hear from guest speakers, as well as take part in activities which have ranged from golfing to attending the corn maze. "We stress the importance of staying mobile," said McLay. "We

tell people if they don't use it they will lose it." Alberta Health Services recreational therapist Heather Hillis said it is important for those who have suffered a stroke to get back into the things they enjoyed doing before after the period of acute care, rehabilitation and community integration. "Often they feel limited and have a hard time re-integrating into the things they once enjoyed doing," she said. "It can be isolating and depressing and they feel alone." The Camrose Stroke Recovery Association was initiated as a pilot project by the Alberta Provincial Stroke Strategy. "We knew there had been a lot of work done here in Camrose but that there was not a peer led group, so we put an advertisement in the paper to see if anyone was interested in being a part of this and it was answered by Sandra," said Hillis. McLay, who had a massive stroke five years ago, said the

stroke has helped her get the information she needs in her recovery, and to see that she is not alone with her struggles. "I have seen that there are others who are in a worse situation than I," she said. The motto of the Camrose and Area Stroke Recovery Association is "reaching out a helping hand, one survivor to another." "We're stroke survivors supporting other stroke survivors in Camrose and area," states the association's promotional brochure. "Giving others an opportunity to gain information on therapies, financial issues, driving after stroke, caregiver support and recreation and to meet and socialize with others who have also had a stroke." More information about the Camrose and Area Stroke Recovery Association is available from Sandra at 780-608-6141, Brenda at 780-672-6426 or Kim at 780608-1909.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Camrose Kodiaks Business Bonanza By Dan Jensen

Camrose businesses have been given a few more reasons to purchase Camrose Kodiaks season tickets. Those who purchase their tickets before July 15 will be entered into two draws: one for two tickets to the 2012 Big Valley Jamboree and one for a TV or iPad/tablet. The deadline doesn't apply for the other prizes available to be won. "We're offering 18 tickets for a sky suite (plus extra tickets in section Z), a postgame visit to the Camrose Kodiaks' dressing room where business representatives will be able to meet and greet players and ask questions of the coaching staff, and a chance to participate in team-building with the Kodiaks," said Camrose Kodiaks' assistant general manager Darcy Steen. Team building may consist of a one-hour game of ice hockey, floor hockey, softball, soccer or basketball with members of the Kodiaks. Camrose Kodiaks' season ticket holders receive guaranteed seats for all 29 games of the 2012-13 season, the first right of acceptance on seats for any playoff games, and fifteen per cent discounts on any items purchased at the Kodiaks' Bear Den, the team's souvenir store. Unused tickets may be exchanged at the box office for any regular season game. A select number of sponsorship opportunities are still available for the Camrose Kodiaks' 2012-13 season. A sole game day sponsorship, for $1,000 includes company images on the big screen in EnCana Arena throughout the specific game the company is sponsoring, 20 tickets to that game, and the company name on the back of one white and one black Camrose Kodiaks' player jersey throughout the 2012-13 season. A split game day sponsorship for $500 includes company images, shared on the big screen in EnCana Arena throughout the specific game the company is sponsoring, ten tickets to that game, and the company name on the back of one white and one black Camrose Kodiaks' jersey throughout the 2012-13 season.

EI changes will help small businesses fill job vacancies The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) welcomed the announcement by Human Resources and Skills Development Minister Diane Finley regarding changes to Canada’s Employment Insurance (EI) system. “Since the recession, skills and labour shortages have reemerged as a major concern for Canada’s small business community,” said CFIB president Catherine Swift. “We believe the changes to defining suitable employment, based on how frequently EI is claimed, will help to remove disincentives to work and hopefully make it easier for small firms to find the people they need.” In the first quarter of 2012, 46 per cent of small firms reported difficulties in finding the staff they need to put their products or services to market. “The shortage of qualified labour is a problem for small businesses across the country – not just in Western Canada,” Swift added. “While the concern is highest in Saskatchewan, over half of our members in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec reported problems finding people.” CFIB will monitor the implementation of these changes closely to ensure they have a meaningful impact in encouraging EI recipients back to work while reflecting the realities of seasonal industries. The fact that many of these changes will be left to the discretion of EI staff to determine if claimants are following the rules may prove to be problematic. “Under the current system, 22 per cent of small business owners said they had difficulty hiring as potential workers would rather stay on EI benefits and another 16 per cent said they had been asked by an employee to lay them off to allow them to collect benefits,” said Swift. “Employers agree that EI should be there for those who lose a job through no fault of their own, but do not accept that the system should be used as some form of paid vacation or ongoing lifestyle for those who choose not to work. Today’s changes are a small step to return some balance to the system.” As Canada’s largest association of small- and medium-sized businesses, CFIB is Powered by Entrepreneurs™. Established in 1971, CFIB takes direction from more than 109,000 members in every sector nationwide, giving independent business a strong and influential voice at all levels of government and helping to grow the economy.

Cheryl Smith reappointed vice president of ASBA Diane Hutchinson, Communications, BRSD

Battle River School Division is very pleased to announce the reappointment of local school board trustee Cheryl Smith to the position of vice president of the Alberta School Boards Association. Smith was first elected to the position of Vice President in the fall of 2010 and was re-appointed for a second 18-month term during the ASBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring conference, held June 3 to 5. During her first term, Smith chaired the Alberta School Boards Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Policy Development Advisory committee, ASBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transformation Task Force and most recently, its political action initiative, A Day for Education, prior to the provincial election. As trustee for the City of Camrose, in the midst of a rural school division, Smith is uniquely aware of both small city and small town issues. Having travelled the prov-

ince over the past 18 months, she has also gained an understanding of the challenges faced in urban and metro areas, giving her a broad view of education in the province of Alberta. Smith believes â&#x20AC;&#x153;the coming term will be a challenging and exciting time for ASBA, and all education stakeholders, as we work together to continue the transformation of education, attempt to ensure labour peace in our schools, and bring years of input and public consultation to fruition within a new Education Act. Both local school boards and the ASBA have vitally important roles to play in moving education forward in our province.â&#x20AC;? Smith is in her third term as a BRSD school board trustee and has been Chair for the last five years. Smith continues to champion equity and inclusion, believing that all children deserve the opportunity to shine and be successful in school.

Smith believes her coming term as ASBA vice president will be exciting and challenging.
