Q. A.

I am getting married. What do we need to consider regarding our finances?

If you’re newly married, it’s essential that you and your partner be on the same page when it comes to finances.

Here are some tips to make sure your financial life together goes smoothly. • Share all your financial information. • Review and establish goals as a couple. Objectives change when you get married. • Budget to ensure spending, savings and investing are under control. • Decide how finances will be managed. Will both partners contribute to expenses and savings? And who will be responsible for physically paying bills? • Make a plan for paying down debt. • Purchase life insurance, and consider disability and critical care insurance as well. • Make or update your wills and powers of attorney. • Establish an emergency fund. There may be more you can do. That’s why it’s a good idea to get help from financial experts when you begin life as a couple. You can benefit from the services of a financial advisor or other professional. The right advice can ensure your financial life together gets started on the right note.


How can I increase the resale value of my home?


1. Freshen up! A fresh coat of paint will make the interior look like new (neutral colors are recommended). 2. Floors. Today, hard surfaces are all the rage. 3. Lighten Up. Old or standard-grade light fixtures, electrical and light coverplates can easily date a house. To modernize and add distinct flair, consider installing new light fixtures. Remember to go Green! 4. Maximize curb appeal. “You never get a second chance to make a good first impression” is extremely true when you’re selling a home. Your goal: tidy and appealing. 5. Stylishly steel – similar to the issue with old light fixtures: knobs, fume hoods and backsplashes can make a kitchen seem outdated. Stainless steel hardware designs have the biggest and most positive impact on people looking to buy a home. 6. White picket fence? Building a fence and a deck boosts a home’s appeal. It maintains privacy and keeps kids and pets in – desirable for many buyers. 7. Exquisite en suite. Today’s home buyer prefers spa style tubs and modern faucets. 8. Everything and the kitchen sink – Prices vary when renovating a kitchen, but one thing is certain, kitchen makeovers bring one of the highest returns on investment. It’s wise not to select a style or color scheme too dramatic, since tastes vary. Answer provided by:

Is it safe to use public wifi?


Public wifi is a convenient service and it works just fine for most things like searching for directions, looking up a recipe, or reading the latest post on your favourite blog. However, you need to be aware that you are using an unsecured network and any information you transmit has the potential to be intercepted. Always consider what information you are sending and if it contains something private or sensitive, like passwords or account numbers, don’t use public wifi.


Can I still get a computer with Windows 7?


With the release of Windows 8, most new PC’s are being sold with Windows 8 preinstalled. Most larger retailers cannot sell systems with Windows 7. Smaller retail stores, however, can still request that systems come with a downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7, but only for a professional version of Windows. If your computer does not have a professional version of Windows 8, a separate purchase of Windows 7 will be required. Answer provided by:

Q. A:

What makes your hamburger so different from all the others?

It isn’t just one thing that makes the Doughboy burger stand out from the crowd. There are at least 20 kitchens in Camrose that have a burger on the menu so when you’re trying to create one that gets noticed, it has to make a statement. Here are some dos and don’ts, based on 35 years of kitchen experience: Don’t: - Let the burger sit under a heating lamp, slowly drying out. - Put the burger in a plastic bag or a Styrofoam box. Serve it on a real plate, preferably white. No plastic allowed. - Undercook or overcook the burger. An experienced cook knows when the burger is just right. - Serve the burger without knowing what the customer wants on it. Do: - Use only Kobe beef. There’s no beef like it in the world. And no other restaurant in Camrose uses Kobe beef. - Hand-cut the tomatoes, thinly slice the white onions, use romaine lettuce. Gently toast the bun and put the thick, sliced pickles on the side. - Ask customer if they would like crispy fries, homemade rich mushroom soup or fresh tossed salad with their burger. Best served with your favorite frosty pint. Kobe Classic Beef There’s nothing like it. The flavor, the texture, the melt-in-your-mouth goodness of it puts every other burger in a different class. It may take more than one thing to make a burger stand up and be noticed, but the key ingredient will always be the beef and only at Doughboy’s can you enjoy Kobe Classic Beef.

What type of window coverings will create a soft elegant feeling in my home?

Roman shades combine the up-scale beauty of soft drapery with the convenient operation of a shade. We have an extensive selection of fabrics – from timeless to ultra-modern – to create an atmosphere of high-style sophistication that’s sure to impress. Choose flat panel style for a clean, traditional appearance or the teardrop or looped style to add bold depth and dimension. Roman shades are available with cordless lift option to help prevent injury in homes with children or pets, and our popular top down bottom up option is also available for clear view through and natural light while maintaining privacy.  There are many different ways to enhance the look of your roman shade with our finishing touches available. Trimming and fringes create a more personalized appearance and adding a wood cornice or 6” fabric valance can complete the look you desire.  Roman shade fabrics also coordinate perfectly with many other types of blinds like roller shades and sliding panels. This means easily flowing style throughout your home. To create the look of  long lasting beauty and elegance, roman shades are the perfect style solution.

Do you fix zippers and hem things?


Yes, we do! Jeans and natural fiber (ie: Cotton, Rayon, Linen) items should be pre-Shrunk before having them hemmed to avoid

surprises. We are happy to have you try on your items at our shop to measure the correct length. If you wish to measure for a certain shoe height, bring them with you. Please do not wear them in, especially in the winter, so that we can keep our floor clean for wedding gowns. Zippers often do not need to be replaced. Bring in your item to have the zipper assessed. Most times it is an easy and quick replacement of the slider that is needed. All items should be brought in clean and free of any fragrance.

Do we really have to read all of that fine print in our Travel Insurance document?

We definitely recommend it, but being realistic we suspect some clients do not read their policies as thoroughly as they should. It is imperative for you to know what conditions or situations are included or excluded from your policy. Travel insurance could be compared to vehicle ownership. Ten vehicles could be parked in a lot. Each has four wheels, an engine and a transmission. Think of the many differences however: horsepower, wheel size, manual vs automatic, etc. Like cars, not all travel insurance is created equally. As your professional travel advisor, we can offer you a plan that is right for your medical history.  Every policy has unique exclusion lists. Specific medications can be a problem for travel to some popular destinations and we can assist you in this regard, too.  On occasion, we advise our clients to pick up a policy in advance of travel and will highlight exclusions or conditions to discuss in private with your physician.  It always pays to use the services of a qualified travel counsellor and the experts at Marlin Travel in Camrose rank amongst the best in the trade.  We are able to professionally source the right travel insurance underwriter for you, regardless of your unique medical situation.  We look forward to having you count on us!

Q. A:

How common is hearing loss? Having a hearing loss today is not as uncommon as one may believe. The following statistics from the Better Hearing Institute below illustrate this gap between those with hearing losses and those

who seek care. - 1 in 4 workers exposed to high levels of noise will develop a hearing loss - only 13% of general practitioners screen for hearing loss. - 3 in every 10 people over age 60 have a hearing loss - 1 in every 6 people between ages 41 to 59 has a hearing loss. - 1 in every 14 Generation X’ers (29-40) already has a hearing loss. - 1.4 million children (under 18) have hearing problems - Only 1 in 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wear one. - 9 out of 10 hearing aid users report improvements in their quality of life. Clearly, these statistics are startling. This truly indicates that a lot of people are choosing to go without the benefits of solutions for their hearing loss. Most often, this can be due to confusion over what benefit hearing aids can provide and which type of hearing aid is best for a specific person’s loss. Call today for a consultation.

City council sets Fire Hall as location to submit election nominations By Dan Jensen

A bylaw establishing Camrose Fire Hall as the location for the submission of election nominations between the hours of 10 a.m. and 12 noon on September 23 was passed by City council June 17. City corporate and protective services general manager Kim Isaak told council that the current setup of administrative offices at Mirror Lake Centre is not conducive to accepting nominations for the general election. "Two main issues have been identified, with the first being the accessibility of the returning officer's office as well as the limited amount of parking space," said Isaak. "There is only a two-hour window of time when candidates or representatives on behalf of the candidates can drop off packages." Isaak said the Camrose Fire Hall has ample parking and a reception desk to greet individuals coming in, which will assist with the traffic flow of having the candidate or representative meet with the returning officer in the board room area just off the reception desk. The City of Camrose will advertise to ensure that candidates or representatives are well aware of where the nomination packages will be received. The Local Authorities Election Act, Section 28, allows for a municipality to pass a bylaw prior to June 30 in the year of a general election that establishes nomination locations other than the local jurisdiction office. No nomination deposit Candidates seeking election will not be required to provide a nomination deposit. "In the past the City has not required nomination deposits," said Isaak. "In a recent election training that I attended I did survey other municipalities in attendance and out of the 20 municipalities, only three required deposits. The general purpose, they stated, was to deter frivolous inquiries. Further to this it was also recognized that the administration of the deposit pursuant to Section 30 of the Local Authorities Election Act added an additional task to the returning officer's list of duties."


protect your yield potential A proactive fungicide program could be key to your success in 2013 While US cornfields dried and died last year, much of Alberta’s cropland enjoyed above average moisture for the third year in a row. But, that moisture comes with a hefty potential cost: a high pathogen load in the soil and stubble going into the 2013 season. This, combined with today’s increasingly tight rotations, means this year could prove a troublesome season for disease. “Especially over the last five years, we’ve seen a dramatic shift to a canola, cereal, canola rotation. While it is probably pretty profitable in the short term, what it brings with it is a much greater risk of disease. Add wet years like we’ve had and the risk just goes up even more,” says, an Agriculture and Agri-food Canada research scientist in Lacombe. “If we have another wet year this year, producers will need to be extremely careful about disease management.” Pathogens that cause the majority of diseases can easily survive two or more years in soil or stubble. As such, if you plant according to a two year rotation, look to the disease pressures you had in

2011 to give a good indication of some of the biggest challenges you may face this coming crop year. Leaf diseases continue to cost growers the most in lost yield. Given that the best way to stay ahead of scald and blotch is rotation, practice a three to four year crop and / or variety rotation. Consult the Alberta Seed Guide (at to

“If we have another wet year this year, producers will need to be extremely careful about disease management.” Dr. Kelly Turkington identify crop varieties that offer resistance to the respective diseases that are issues for you. Be extra vigilant in scouting for key diseases that are on the move. Stripe rust was newly found in multiple areas around Edmonton and as far north as

Barrhead, which is not surprising given that its spores can travel long distances by wind. Trace levels of fusarium head blight in cereals have now been reported across central Alberta, and damaging levels are occurring in irrigated parts of southern Alberta. Finally, blackleg, which is all over the province, appears to be breaking through the resistance of some canola varieties. To give yourself a fighting chance against disease, prepare your fungicide plans early. A dense crop canopy, while excellent for yield, will hold in moisture and foster disease development. Therefore, if you have a strong, vigorously growing young crop, protect your yield potential by applying fungicide at the earliest stage recommended on the product label. “A wait and see approach doesn’t work for some diseases. If you’ve got a disease like sclerotinia, once you see the symptoms of the disease in the crop, it’s already too late to spray,” says Turkington.

Camrose Camerata has received another major award. The singing group was the star of the Camrose and District Music Festival and earned the Lions Rose Bowl. Now the local adult chamber choir placed first in the provincial level competition for choirs aged 19 and older. The Alberta competition is judged based on a recording submitted to the provincial festival organizers for adjudication. Camerata won its category, and received a plaque in recognition as well as a prize of $500 (two prizes of $250 each), donated by Olds and District Kiwanis Music Festival and the Provost Music Festival. By winning the provincial competition, the recording was automatically submitted to the national event, which is scheduled in early August in Ontario. "Kudos go to all members of Camrose Camerata for their accomplishments thus far in the season," said director Joy-Anne Murphy. “The competition will be stiff at the national level, but we are delighted to have made it this far and look forward to hearing the results from August’s adjudication.� Members of Camerata are thrilled at this recognition of their hard work and dedication to great choral music of all types. "The timing is especially gratifying, as the choir is gearing up for a season of celebration in 2013– 14, in which it will mark its 10th anniversary," added Joy-Anne. Plans for the year include the annual Lessons and Carols in December, a January concert in which the choir will sample favourite songs from throughout its 10-year history, and then a grand concert in April presenting Schubert’s Mass in G with orchestra and special guests Vocal Alchemy from Edmonton. "Singers from previous Camerata seasons will also be welcomed back to join the current choir for portions of both main concerts," said Joy-Anne.

Seniors' Chat Seniors' Chat

By Alan Richards Camrose Seniors’ Coalition

You, or a family member, have been diagnosed with cancer or face a new twist in your journey with cancer. You find yourself with plenty to take in, lots of questions, and financial challenges. It can be overwhelming. Two new services in Camrose, that are free of charge, help those living with cancer and their families get accurate information and helpful support. Karen Jans is a registered nurse with specialized training in cancer care. She is the new Nurse Navigator at St. Mary’s Hospital (780-678-5777) with Cancer Patient Navigation, an Alberta Health Services’ program that began at St. Mary’s this spring. “I’m here to support people,” she told me, “from diagnosis to the end of life, or into a healthy life after cancer.” Karen will help you find information about your illness

and your treatment choices and their side effects. She can also help you prepare for tests and understand the results, know what to expect when you meet with specialists, and plan your care and recovery after treatments. Jennifer Westerhof is a registered social worker who joined Cancer Support Program of the Camrose Primary Care Network in January (780-608-4947). She will help you through the physical, emotional and financial challenges that are part of living with cancer and of its effects on your family, your relationships, and your work. She can also help you with information and application for two financial support programs. The Financial Assistance Program of the Canadian Cancer Society is available to Albertans “with a demonstrated financial need who are receiving active treatment and follow-up at a recognized cancer treatment facility.” This program may help you pay for accommodations

(in a hotel or with a friend or family member) when you have an appointment or need treatment out of town. It may also help you with travel costs. Contact Jennifer Westerhof for more information, or visit the Canadian Cancer Society’s website. The Alberta Special Needs Assistance Program for Seniors assists low-income seniors with some of the costs of travel for appointments and treatment and with prescription medications. Contact Jennifer Westerhof for more information, or Camrose SOS (Seniors Outreaching Services; 780-6724131). These services and programs can help us as we journey with cancer or live with those who do. They can help us make decisions based on good information, take charge of our own health, and feel comfortable talking with our doctors, family, and friends. That’s a recipe for stress reduction, good support, and healthy hope!

Government sticks with divorce by nursing home

Plan Now For Their Future Needs You’ve worked your entire life to build your assets. Sound estate planning can ensure these hard-earned assets are passed on to your family according to your wishes, without interference. Talk to us today about developing a plan that makes sense for you and your loved ones.

By Murray Green

Despite the fact seniors in Alberta want to remain with their spouses in later years, the provincial government is trying to keep them up to 80 kilometres (km) apart. The government congratulated itself for eliminating the 100-kilometre divorce-by-nursing-home policy by reducing the distance by 20 km on June 19. The government insists seniors are much happier being 80 km apart from their spouses than they are at 100 km between places of residences. Wildrose Official Opposition seniors critic Kerry Towle met with seniors in Wainwright, Sedgewick and Daysland last Feb. 25 to collect opinions on the fact seniors are often separated by nursing homes when one spouse requires more health care than the other spouse. On June 19, the Premier’s Office confirmed the new guidelines to allow AHS (Alberta Health Service) to send seniors in long term care up to 80 km away from their families and loved ones, essentially leaving the divorce-by-nursing-home policy intact despite overwhelming opposition. On Twitter, the Premier’s issues manager Michael Norris indicated AHS has reverted to the David Thompson Health Region policy of 80 km for the central region, according to MLA Towle. “Health minister Fred Horne has some explaining to do. One day he says the divorceby-nursing-home policy is cruel and it is over, the next day it’s only been reduced by 20 per cent,” MLA Towle said. “Splitting apart married couples by 80 km is not any less cruel than 100 km. Why can’t this government do the right thing and let married couples in long term care stay together?” Continued on page 27

Creative Arts Summer School back for another year By Dan Jensen

The Creative Arts Summer School should help take some of the boredom out of summer.

The Camrose Arts Society program for youth between the ages of six and 12 will run Mondays to Fridays at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre from July 3 to August 23. "It's a program for kids to enjoy themselves and express their creativity through games, crafts, drama, field trips and dance," said Creative Arts Summer School coordinator Kristen Skagen. "We do a variety of activities and go to different places, including the spray park, museum and Co-op bakery." Creative Arts Summer School offers a different activity every day under a preselected theme. It's a Bug's Life July 22 will see participants make worms and dirt snacks (Oreos, chocolate

pudding and gummy worms) and snake keychains, and go on a pond adventure with the Wildlife Stewardship Society. Under the Sea on August 14 will see participants build their own aquarium, play a live version of Go Fish, and pay a visit to the Camrose spray park. Christmas in July on July 18 will see the participants make a Santa scene and reindeer marks. About Time Productions will be teaching drama and dance every Thursday. The Creative Arts Summer School has proven to be very popular with both youth and their parents over the years. "The attendance varies from day to day, depending on the popularity of the program we are offering, but usually ranges from between seven and 30," said Creative Arts Summer School assistant coordinator Kelsie Svihura.

"Some of the parents pre register their children for the days that they know they will need supervision." The days begin with drop-offs and registration from 8:30 to 9 a.m. and end at 4p.m. The per child cost is $20 per day, $85 for five days or $250 per month. Extra supervision is provided between 4 and 5 p.m. at a cost of $2. Skagen has just completed year two of a Bachelor of Arts program at Grant MacEwan University, and has the eventual goal of becoming a social worker. Svihura has just completed the first year of a drama program at the University of Lethbridge. More information about the Creative Arts Summer Program may be obtained by calling Kristen or Jane at 780-672-9949.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster The River Jacks electric guitarist Chad Szott and acoustic guitarist and lead vocalist Ryan Lindsay had the crowd loving country music during the Battle of the Bands on June 14. By Murray Green

Due to unpredictable weather, the Battle of the Bands fight for supremacy moved from the street to the basement at Martha's Music on June 14. But, that didn't stop the band Addictionary from turning in a great performance in the local music competition in downtown Camrose. Addictionary took home a Yamaha Stagepas 400i PA system for placing first in the contest. Second place winners of a Yamaha Pocketrak Recorder went to The River Jacks, third place winners of a Yamaha Pocketrak Recorder went to Baboon, fourth place winner of a Yamaha Pocketrak Recorder was presented to Taryn Stauffer and fifth place Martha's Music gift cards went to House of Flies. A panel of judges provided 75 per cent of the score and the fan vote counted for the other 25 per cent of the band's score. All five bands will receive an industry seminar to help them advance in the music business. The winner of the first annual Lyndon Olson memorial guitar excellence award was given to Ron Fell.

Camrose taxpayers receiving a break according to study By Dan Jensen

Camrose property owners really don't have much to complain about when it comes to the amount they are paying in taxes. A City of St. Albert comparison of 11 Alberta municipalities, including Edmonton and Calgary, shows that the City of Camrose has had the lowest tax increase over the last five-year period. "We have had an average tax increase over the last five years of 3.11 per cent and a cumulative increase of 15.55 per cent," said City assessor Travis Lantz in a report to City council June 17. "Obviously that speaks to and reflects positively on council's efforts to control municipal tax increases and keep them low." The City of Calgary and City of Edmonton have had cumulative tax increases of 38.59 and 28.15 per cent over the past five years. Leduc has had a cumulative tax increase of 18.30 per cent, while St. Albert has had a cumulative tax increase of 16.17 per cent. A City of Camrose assessment department comparison indicates that the amount of taxes paid by the average homeowner in Camrose is slightly below the amount that is paid by average homeowners in nine of 17 Alberta cities, as well as Strathcona County (Sherwood Park) and the RM of Wood Buffalo (Fort McMurray). "The total property taxes paid in these municipalities averages $2,756.43," said Lantz. The City of Camrose is below the average with the average home paying $2,718.78 in property taxes. The average assessed value was calculated by dividing the total single family assessment by the number of single family dwellings in each municipality. The cities in which the average taxpayer paid less than Camrose were Medicine Hat, Lloydminster, Brooks, Wetaskiwin, Airdrie, Fort Saskatchewan, Lethbridge, Lacombe and Red Deer. The City of Camrose 2013 operating budget passed by City council last December resulted in a municipal tax increase of 3.63 per cent, a number that was reduced, with actual growth, to 3.6 per cent. Property taxes in the City of Camrose go to three different places. One portion goes to the City to fund the cost of providing local government services, another goes to the provincial government to fund the education system, and another goes to the Camrose and Area Lodge Authority to fund lodge housing. Community services accounts for 16.34 per cent of the overall municipal tax levy, followed by the Camrose police service at 13.37 per cent, public works and transportation and general government, each at 12.63 per cent, administration at 8.17 per cent, engineering at 3.71 per cent, capital funding at 3.71 per cent, fire service at 2.97 per cent, and economic development at 0.74 per cent. City of Camrose property owners have until July 3 to pay their 2013 property taxes without incurring a penalty of six per cent. Thirty-two per cent of Camrose residents take advantage of the monthly tax installment plan.

Norm Mayer declares candidacy for mayor's chair By Dan Jensen

One name in, will there be more? Central Agencies owner Norm Mayer ended months of speculation last week when he announced he would be seeking a sixth term as the city's top elected official in this fall's municipal vote. Mayer served as mayor of Camrose from 1989 to 2004. He served as City alderman from 1977 to 1986. Mayer said in an interview with The Camrose Booster he has concerns with regards to the lack of development in the city. "I think the biggest problem is the requirements that our present bylaws and development controls impose on people, and also the delay in sometimes getting things looked after. Previous councils spent a number of years trying to keep things going in the way we thought was best and I would like to try to move forward in that direction again.

Norm Mayer

"We need to change some of the barriers that seem to slow projects down or cause them to be discontinued totally. The prevailing concern expressed by people to me is the cost factors involved and the requirements

that are being placed upon them to do anything." Mayor feels the people who are feeling the lack of development the most are the individual taxpayers. "I think our tax rate is being borne by residential right now. If we want to keep that in line then I think we need to be able to come up with additional assessable property in commercial and other developments." Mayer was happy to see the City get started on the performing arts centre, which he calls a good addition to the community's offering at the university level, but had and continues to have concern about the City Hall project. "I have trouble building a four-storey structure there (on the existing City Hall site) when a four-storey is not needed at this stage. I also have concerns about City council moving forward without having all the funding in place.

We may well get caught if the government cuts out some grants and leaves us with a shortfall. That has to be addressed somehow. Those are some of the things that are on the books at this stage. I guess to some extent we have to live with them." Mayer believes he has the support from his staff and the energy to be successful in the work he wants to accomplish. "We have a lot of good people here who can assist where I need it, and I think I can free up the time that is needed in the same way as I did before." Mayer is looking forward to seeing what transpires in the next few weeks or months in terms of others announcing their candidacy for either mayor or council. "It sounds as though there could be at least five new people on council. That in itself could create a bit of a challenge to try to get everybody thinking the same way as far

as moving forward with the business of the City." Mayer has had a long association with the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta. "My own experience of Norm's interest and his passion and his sense of the importance of what we do here comes from the year in which we were negotiating but also building political support for our incorporation into the University of Alberta," said former Augustana dean Dr. Roger Epp. "Over a period of months we hosted meetings with a number of cabinet ministers in cramped quarters. Unfailingly, Norm was there, showing the community support, and I also am sure, using his own informal channels of influence to make sure the deal got done." Mayer has been a resident of Camrose since 1963, the year he commenced Johnson Agencies (now Central Agencies).

Former Camrose dentist Dr. Darren Brooks was sentenced to two and a half years in a federal institution by a Court of Queen's Bench judge in Wetaskiwin June 19. He was also prohibited from driving for five years. Dr. Brooks was found guilty in March of Impaired Driving Causing Death, Driving over .08 Causing Death and Dangerous Driving Causing Death after an early morning accident on May 3, 2009, that claimed the life of his 31-year-old passenger, Greg Michael Shute, a foreman at Evraz Camrose Works. Brooks received minor injuries in the accident and

did not require hospitalization. The car was located in a marshy area west of the 58 Street and 51 Avenue intersection. Crown prosecutors praised the "thorough and time consuming investigation" performed by Camrose Police Service. "They felt that the members of the Camrose Police Service had done a very thorough and complete investigation, which allowed them to gain a conviction on all counts, which were thoroughly disputed by the accused," said Camrose deputy police chief Lee Foreman. After the accident Dr. Brooks was able to continue his dentistry practice in B.C.

Friendship Force pays a visit to Camrose By Dan Jensen

Sixteen representatives from various Friendship Force clubs in Brazil had the opportunity to spend some time exploring Camrose last week. The visitors were welcomed by Mayor Marshall Chalmers at the Bill Fowler Centre June 10, after which they had lunch at the Lefse House, met with local artist Jim Brager, toured the special district historic area and the Augustana campus and explored the downtown core, including the historic Bailey Theatre. Two of the 16 stayed five nights in the home of fellow Friendship Force members Lyle and Hazel Erga. Camrose was one of four stops on the tour for the Brazilians, along with Lethbridge, Edmonton and Vancouver. "It was nice that they were able to come to Camrose and learn about the growth of the city as a Scandinavian settlement," said Sharon Schnell, member of Friendship Force Edmonton and Area. Friendship Force provides opportunities to explore new countries and cultures from the inside by bringing people together at the personal level. Through the signature program of home hospitality, local hosts welcome international visitors into their culture, sharing with them meals, conversation and the best sights and experiences of their region. In a typical Friendship Force program, a local club (chapter) prepares an itinerary of cultural activities, inviting members from clubs in other countries to

come and stay with them in their homes for up to a week. Friendship Force International conducts over 300 programs each year in 377 communities and in 56 countries. The Ergas have been associated with Friendship Force for the last 10 years. Through their involvement they have been able to visit Burundi and Kenya in Africa, Wellington and Wangeri in New Zealand, Newcastle and Gold Coast in Australia, Winnipeg, and last September, Oxford, England, Amsterdam and Leuven, Belgium.

Friendship Force members pay their own travel expenses plus an administration fee which covers most of the operating costs of Friendship Force International. Friendship Force Edmonton and Area was founded in 1999 and currently has 82 members, some working, many retired and living throughout the metropolitan area. The club likes to highlight some of the area's history and culture through visits to Edmonton City Hall, Chinatown, the Alberta legislature, Art Gallery of Alberta, Royal Alberta

Museum, Fort Edmonton Park, Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, Elk Island National Park and other attractions as time permits. The hosting program includes both formal welcome and farewell activities, as well as time to get the hosts and many of the members during dinners in private rooms, barbecues, picnics and other informal gatherings. "The exchange visits are an opportunity to make friends and develop deeper understandings in the hopes of achieving greater world peace," said Schnell. "Friendship Force partici-

pants greet the world with an open mind and respect for other cultures. In this way, each person makes an individual contribution toward global goodwill." Friendship Force can explore the world without ever leaving home by extending the hand of friendship to international guests. "It is a rewarding experience to give your guests an upclose, insider's view of life in your country, either through overnight home hospitality or daytime cultural activities," says Friendship Force.

ing for recreation programs that barely existed. "When we asked to see how much Alberta Health was funding the facility for recreation we got an email from one of the owners saying all the agreements and contracts are confidential. When the Alberta Health Services area manager called a continuing care health services audit the auditors said the facility was in full compliance. We asked if we could sit down with the auditors who come in for one day every year or two and show us how this facility met the standards. They said they couldn't do that because everything was confidential." Witholt said it is important to hold the government and private corporations accountable for the use of public funds. "We as a community have decided we are going to contract out the care of our elderly and sick to private companies, but we can never contract out or abdicate responsibility to ensure that these public companies deliver the services that we are paying them and expecting them to provide." Somerville said the government's rescinding of the first available bed policy, which set 100 km as the permissible distance seniors could be moved away from the area where their family/community supports are located, is totally meaningless because it does not address the underlying problem, namely the decision not to build any more long term care facilities. "They (came out with this policy) because they had seniors backing up in hospital and they

wanted to get them out of the hospital. We are talking about people who are cognitively impaired, who have chronic illnesses, who are frail and who need nursing home care." Somerville said seniors need to be concerned about the steps the government is taking to eliminate the universal seniors' drug plan and create a means-tested plan based on income. "They haven't announced the details of this plan but they have talked about basing it on a plan that has been operating in B.C. the last ten years or so, and they seem to know it will save $180 million. If they do use the plan it works like this. If you have a low enough income your coverage starts right away. If your income is a bit higher then your coverage doesn't start until you have used two per cent of your own income to buy your own drugs. And then at the higher level, it becomes three per cent of your income before any coverage starts. I think that is quite ridiculous, frankly. The B.C. plan did not work to save money. The seniors who couldn't afford the drugs ended up in hospital and so what they saved on drugs they had to spend on the health care system. There was no economy at all." Public Interest Alberta notes that eighty per cent of drugs are used by 20 per cent of the people, especially seniors. "Since when was it acceptable," said a Public Interest Alberta brochure, ""to dump fiscal problems onto people because they are sick."

Senior advocates take issue with the contracting of care By Dan Jensen

Senior advocates speaking at a Camrose Seniors' Coalition Elders in Care forum at the United Church in Camrose, June 19, took the provincial government to task over its move to replace nursing homes with privately owned continuing care and designated assisted living facilities owned by private companies whose sole intent is to make money for shareholders. Noel Somerville, chair of the Seniors' Task Force, Public Interest Alberta, said the government is abdicating its responsibility to seniors in its attempt to save money. "Long term care facilities or nursing homes are governed by the Long Term Care Act, which says that every patient in a long term facility or a nursing home has to receive an average of 1.9 hours of care a day, and that 22 per cent of that care has to be delivered by a registered nurse. That is what the government wants to get away from. Former premier Stelmach told me they can get three personal care aides for the price of one RN. Good quality nursing care is too expensive to waste on seniors. That is what they are telling us." Somerville said the government announcement on May 16 that it does not intend to build any more long term care beds for seniors is counter to the promise in the most recent election to build 1,000 care spaces a year for the next five years. "That wasn't a verbal promise, that was a promise that appeared on the PC website dur-

ing the election. Many seniors voted for the Redford government on the basis of that promise." Lynda Jonson, who is chair of Seniors I Care nonprofit group that she created when she realized that residents in care facilities need advocates, said that in addition to room and board, supportive or assisted living facilities charge residents for the medications, nursing and personal care they require. "Under long term care everything was covered. We have to holler for more of these, not get rid of the public ones, which the government is doing. They are bringing in the private (contractors) to run the facilities but they don't have the standards in place to govern them." Jonson said it is important that communities stick together to support the seniors who are living in care facilities where they have no voice.

"We have to band together to make sure that our seniors are looked after and that is the only way we are going to make this government change. They all need your help – your neighbour, your grandmother, your mother maybe and your friends need your help, and you are going to be there someday. There should be no difference if going into long term care or designated assisted living." Shirley Witholt, chair of Advocates for Designated Supportive Living residents in Wainwright, said the concern she has over assisted and supportive living facilities is the lack of transparency and accountability. "We just don't know what is going on there. There is so much that we don't know." Witholt said the facility that was providing care to her parents was receiving government fund-

City council tables request for street closure By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has

tabled until July 15 a request from City Center Camrose to close a portion of 50 Street on Thursday afternoons and evenings during the months of July and August for the operation of a farmers' market. City Center Camrose manager Carole-May Coty informed Mayor Chalmers and council in a letter dated June 17 that the possibility of having a farmers' market in City Center has been suggested in the past by various groups. "Having the farmers' market on Thursdays complements the existing Music on Main Street program which takes place Thursday evenings on the north block of main street during July and August," said Coty. The request came as a surprise to most, if not all members of council. "This is the first time I have heard about it," said councillor Daryl Shillington, who is the owner of Sole City Shoes on main street," during June 17 discussions.

"Consumers are asking that the stores stay open Thursday nights and this (farmers' market) may impact that." Mayor Marshall Chalmers said he was uncomfortable with proceeding until council could get a clearer picture on how the farmers' market would impact downtown businesses. "There are a lot of questions that still need to be answered and we need to be sure not to step on people's toes. "There may be some store owners who have not yet been spoken to." City Center Camrose views the street closure as a positive step forward in promoting City Center as well as Camrose as a whole. 2016 Summer Games Council has directed City administration to look into whether Camrose has the capacity to host the 2016 Alberta Summer Games. The Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation is encouraging communities to consider the

benefits that can result from hosting the Summer Games. "The legacy of experienced volunteers and upgraded facilities associated with hosting the Alberta Games, along with the economic benefits has proven to be tremendous," said Dr. Richard Starke, Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation responsible for sport and recreation in Alberta in a letter dated May 27. "The successful host community is given the opportunity to showcase its talents to approximately 2,800 participants from all regions of the province, as well as to attract numerous spectators and special guests." Camrose last hosted the Alberta Summer Games in 2002. Council appointments Council has appointed former City councillor Larry Johnson, Chamber of Commerce president Jennifer Filip and University of Alberta Augustana Campus dean Allen Berger to a council remuneration review committee that will make recommendations on salary,

benefits and other related expenses for elected members of the City of Camrose. Consultant hired The City of Camrose will be paying Genivar $93,467 to complete the comprehensive amendment of its land use bylaw. Genivar was one of eight consulting firms that submitted proposals for the work by June 17. "The quote is greater than the allocated $75,000 in the 2013 budget," said City director of planning and development services Jeff Laurien, "however administration is of the opinion that this quote offers the City the best bang for the buck so to speak to receive a very high quality product as desired for the cost associated with it as compared to other submissions. Although some other submissions quoted a lower cost, their proposals either lacked the comprehensiveness of the proposal from Genivar and/ or their project team was not as experienced. Thus it was administration's opinion that for a relatively minor

greater monetary cost, the City would receive a better end product that would actually save the City time and money in the future." The proposal from Genivar will be broken up into two sections. "The first section will encompass the first three phases of the project to be completed in 2013 for no greater than $75,000," said Laurien. "The completion of these three phases will provide the City with a draft amended land use bylaw which could be finalized by administration if necessary. It is administration's hope that the fourth phase of the project, which would largely encompass the approval process by council (three readings and a public hearing) and any necessary revisions to the draft would also be completed by the consultant as part of the 2014 budget in the amount of $18,467. Since the cost of the project is less than $200,000 it can be approved by the general manager of infrastructure and planning services.

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

With rights come responsibilities On July 1 Canadians across our country will celebrate Canada’s 146th birthday. Festive activities will include formal ceremonies, parades, family fun affairs and culminate with fireworks. Camrose and adjacent communities have plans for a variety of daylong activities. In addition to enjoying the festivities, July 1 is a time for Canadians to feel and also express deep gratitude for the rights we have as Canadian citizens – rights which we are prone to take for granted and for which too many others in the world have had to risk their lives in the struggle to gain. It is also a good time to remember that with these rights come responsibilities – responsibilities that some of us are also prone to forget and/or ignore. Citizenship and Immigration Canada has clearly defined the rights and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship “which have come to us from our history, are secured by Canadian law and reflect our shared traditions, identity and values.” These precious rights enjoyed by Canadian citizens are: freedom of conscience and religion; freedom of thought, speech and opinion; freedom of peaceful assembly and of the press. We also have the freedom to live and work and travel where we choose within the country and are free to travel elsewhere as we wish. In Canada, men and women are equal under the law. We have two official languages – English and French – as well as minority language educational rights. Out of the process of the settlement of Canada has come official multiculturalism which acknowledges that our quality of life is enhanced by the presence of those of different origins. Canadians respect pluralism. As a nation, Canada is an exemplary model of how peoples of different races and cultures can live in harmony. With our precious rights of citizenship come clearly defined responsibilities as outlined by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. At the top of the list is a requirement to obey the law; in Canada, no one person or group is above the law. Each citizen has responsibility for the care of one’s self and one’s family to the extent of one’s ability. If called to serve on a jury, a Canadian citizen is legally required to do so. The right to vote comes with the responsibility to vote in federal, provincial, territorial or local elections. (This assumes that a voter will maintain a continuous watchful interest in public affairs and vote with an informed mind.) Canadians are known for their volunteerism – the donation of time and talent to help needy persons and charities in the community, to assist immigrants to adjust to a new country, and many more examples – all without pay. Not the least of citizenship responsibilities is the “obligation to protect and enjoy our heritage and environment. Every citizen has a role to play in avoiding waste and pollution while protecting Canada’s natural, cultural and architectural heritage for future generations.” The responsibilities of Canadian citizenship are a small price to pay for our precious rights. May we show our gratitude, on Canada Day and every day, by guarding our rights and fulfilling our citizenship duties to the best of our ability!

The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Dear Editor:

My son, who uses an electric wheelchair to get around, was having lunch at McDonald's. When he went to leave with his friends there was a vehicle parked in front of the handicap ramp that is the only access to the street from the sidewalk. They went back in and notified the manager so this person could move the vehicle. After waiting 10 minutes, no one showed up, leaving him stuck on the sidewalk. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the two

men who came out and lifted him and his chair down from the curb onto the street. Whoever you are, you are very kindhearted people. I am writing this to make people aware that people in wheelchairs rely on areas like this to get around, and though it may seem petty to you while you are parking there, it is very frustrating to them to deal with this kind of stupidity. This is not the only instance that has caused us to shake our heads with how ignorant people are of the needs of handicapped persons. For example, if you can walk around the store for any amount of time pushing a cart I'm pretty sure you can push that same cart another 20 feet to the designated cart area or back into the store rather than leaving it in the handicap parking spots. There have been many occasions where we had to gather carts before pulling in. And in more than one instance we have left the EnCana after a hockey game only to wait on the sidewalk again because somebody

has pulled the car up to do a pick-up, but has parked in front of the sidewalk ramp, leaving him stuck again. Even though you may be parking there just for a moment, that moment may be the time that these need to be utilized. Just two weeks ago, I took him for his dentist appointment and when we turned into the parking lot a courier truck was backed into the handicap spot. As we sat there waiting, the driver came out and gave us a nice wave as he got back in his vehicle to drive away. When we finally got into the office, the driver had left packages right in the doorway, so someone could easily step around them, but in a wheelchair this was not an option. These boxes had to be moved around so that he could drive in. Please be aware when you are out and about that what you may take for granted other people rely on. The signs are posted and the streets are marked, so there is really no excuse for this lack of common sense. Tammy M. Langille, Rosalind

Be a Tourist In Your Own Town

Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers (right) poses for a photo with Camrose Visitor Information Centre tourism consultants Dan Shepherd, Katelyn Stewart and Kirsten Rudolph. By Dan Jensen

Camrose Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Centre tourism consultants at the Bill Fowler Centre will be introducing Camrose and area residents to the many events and attractions that are happening here at home this summer during the ninth annual Be a Tourist In Your Own Town Week July 7 to 13. "We have an exciting week planned with lots of events and activities," said Kirsten Rudolph, a consultant who has just completed her second year of an English program at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. A kick-off barbecue and western train night sponsored by the Camrose Kodiaks will be held at the centre from 4:30 to 8:30 Tuesday, July 9. "We're going to be having actors from About Time Productions helping us on the train

rides," said Rudolph. "They are really excited to be able to step up and help us." The western train night is a carry-over from the Mystery Train Night held last summer in which western outlaws held up the Mirror Lake Express and demanded a ransom from passengers for the release of their hostage, Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers. Geocache Day from 10:00 to 4:30 on Wednesday, July 10, will feature a scavenger hunt in Mirror Lake Park and a special appearance by Camrose mascot Ole Uffda. Train Night from 5:30 to 8:00 on Thursday, July 11, will include train rides, free pictures with the train, and face painting. Kids' Fun Day from 2:00 to 5:00 on Friday, June 12, will include water balloon volleyball, face painting and lawn games.

Rudolph and her fellow tourism consultants Katelyn Stewart and Dan Shepherd, also Augustana students, will be available throughout the week to provide helpful information, tips and brochures on many local events and attractions. "We know where all the different events are happening," said Rudolph. The consultants will also provide directions to those less well-known businesses that you may not previously had the chance to visit. Be a Tourist In Your Own Town Week had good attendance in 2012. "We were pleasantly surprised with the turnout for the Mystery Train Night because it was one of those last minute ideas," said Rudolph. "We had a lot of the different children's day camps come out for Geocache Day and the Kids' Fun Day."

Grand Caravan

The right ingredients for moving people and cargo By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan at Camrose Chrysler is a minivan with the driving dynamics of a performance sedan – and a little bit of attitude. "Versatility doesn't mean that the experience has to be boring," said Camrose Chrysler sales manager Denis Mercier. "You can get behind the wheel and enjoy a driving experience once never thought possible in such a functional vehicle." Aggressive feel

Grand Caravan's design is intended to convey the dynamic driving nature of the vehicle. A front fascia that sports the Dodge signature "split-crosshair" grille and quad headlamps combine to give the face of the 2013 version an aggressive feel. A sculpted rear fascia and rear "ring of fire" LED taillamps completes the look from the front to the back. Grand Caravan's segment-exclusive Stow 'n Place roof rack system provides the convenience of crossbars without compromising aerodynamics, since they attach to the side rails when not in use. Both the power liftgate and the power sliding doors feature obstacle detection, which reverses the door's direction if an object is sensed in its path. Grand Caravan also boasts more Quiet Steel technology than any other minivan. This leading-edge noiseand vibration-reducing steel, along with other design cues, works to ensure a quiet cabin.

Performance From the state-of-the art high-pressure die-cast aluminum block, VVT, sequential multiport fuel injection and high-flow intake and exhaust ports, the 3.6 litre Pentastar engine applies some of the most advanced automotive engine technologies. The result is an exceptional blend of high torque, fuel-efficiency, low emissions, and quiet ride. The only thing better than numbers like 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque is the engine's durability enhancing features, like an advanced oil filter system that helps eliminate oil spills and contributes to more environmentally-friendly disposal with its incinderable filter element. The engine delivers highway mileage of 7.9 litres per 100 km and 12.2 litres per 100 km city, and a segment-exclusive fuel economizer feature that alters shift patterns to help improve real-world fuel efficiency. It's also Flex Fuel capable, offering the choice of using either gasoline or ethanol (E85) fuel, or any combination of the two. Nobody does it better Open any of Grand Caravan's doors and immediately find comfort, luxury and superior craftsmanship at every turn. Well-appointed interior-design details include soft-touch surfaces, chrome accents, and musthave features intuitively placed for ease of driver and passenger use. The integrated instrument panel offers a unified look with touches of chrome around the climate controls, shifter and gauge cluster rings. The LED-

illuminated gauges are positioned for easy viewing and the steering wheel houses cruise and audio controls. The available segment-exclusive Super Console includes power outlets, cup holders, covered storage, and more, all within easy access to both first- and second-row passengers. The available Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control system keeps everyone comfortable via its electronic thermostats. The push of a button activates the available class-exclusive full-circumference heated steering wheel, keeping the driver's hands warm. When it comes to versatility, Grand Caravan's ingenuity takes a back seat to no one. Grand Caravan can carry up to seven people, an amazing amount of cargo, or any combination between, thanks to industry-exclusive Stow 'n Go. With 81 possible seating configurations, neither your cargo nor your crew will feel the squeeze. Shopping at home improvement or big box stores isn't a problem either. Simply stow all the seats into the floor to create 4,072 litres of cargo volume without ever having to remove a seat. Even everyday errands are made easier with Grand Caravan. The nine-inch deep in-floor storage bin behind the third row allows you to load and unload groceries with ease, without worrying about pro-

duce rolling around out and under the seats. Let me entertain you The available segmentexclusive second- and thirdrow independent DVD entertainment system features nine-inch screens, two sets of wireless headphones, Mike Cuthbert a remote, and input jacks to accommodate gaming and Camrose Chrysler video possibilities during long trips to virtually eliminate the "are we there yet?" questions from the passengers. Best of all, the screens can work independently, with one showing a movie while the other is used for video games. The video system can be operated from either the rear seat entertainment unit or the radio head unit. Whether your passengers are watching a DVD or listening to your favourite music, everyone will appreciate the available nine-speaker Infinity sound system with an 11-channel amplifier that serves 506 watts of power. An eight-inch, two-channel, dual-voice coil subwoofer means superb quality surround sound for everyone. Safety In adverse weather conditions, the standard Electronic Stability Control with Electronic Brake Assist works with an advanced all-speed traction control system to help the driver maintain vehicle directional stability and limit oversteering or understeering. Electronic Brake Assist detects conditions when maximum force is needed for optimum stopping power. A new driver's inflatable knee blocker helps reduce injuries to lower extremities on impact with the dashboard and helps properly position the driver in relation to the front air bags. The Blind Spot Monitoring System continually monitors blind zones on either side of the vehicle. When an object is detected, an indicator light illuminates in the appropriate exterior mirror and an optional audible notification is provided.

Government stands by divorce by nursing home Continued from page 9

In the spring legislative sitting, the Wildrose party pressed the government to end divorce-by-nursing-home practices after Towle gathered information from local seniors who want to see the policy abolished on a province-wide seniors’ tour in February. “This government is quickly losing credibility with the people who built this province and it’s time for the minister to show some leadership and end the divorce-by-nursing-home policy once and for all,” said the MLA for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake. Towle toured Daysland's Providence Place to back up her claims. "We need to have a priority in keeping senior couples together, keeping seniors in their home communities, so while they wait for long term care space, we should shore them up with support to allow them to stay at home with their spouses," she said. "I heard just now from this lady (in Daysland) that her husband lives 40 miles away. It's divorce by nursing home." She understands that not all lodges can commit to several stages of health care. "There is this unfairness that when you hit advanced levels of care, you no longer stay married," MLA Towle said in Daysland last February.

Council clears way for Catholic church

Camrose City council has cleared the way for the construction of a new Catholic church parish/centre. Council passed final reading of a bylaw during its June 17 meeting to redistrict Lots C and D at 3505- and 3606-50 Street from RS-R2L (laneless) single family residential district to I institutional district with the caveat or understanding that a church would be the only institutional use permitted. The bylaw has been debated extensively since it was given first reading by council last October, with surrounding property owners expressing concern about the impact the development would have on property values and traffic flows, the ability to enjoy their own yards and possible difficulties in getting utilities to other property owners in the area. The owners also questioned whether there was enough parking, and whether the height of the structure being proposed by the Catholic archdiocese would cast their properties into deep shadows. St. Francis Xavier Parish site selection and building committee chair Keith Elliott provided information indicating that the church would be for the use of parishioners only and for the use of Parish groups such as the Catholic Women's League and Knights of Columbus. He also noted that the chapel lights could be positioned and regulated to ensure that they do not bother the neighbours, and that a traffic study commissioned by the architect and paid for by St. Francis Xavier Parish has made recommendations that will ensure that the traffic flow on 50 Street will not be greatly impacted. City of Camrose director of planning and development services Jeff Laurien advised council May 21 against doing an area development plan, noting a large portion of the identified area has been recently developed and is continuing to be developed at this time. "To complete an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) a request for proposals and requirements and specification would have to be developed by administration to receive proposals from the qualified applicants," said Laurien. "Administration would then have to choose the best qualified consultant to complete the necessary ARP under the supervision of administra-

CAFCL honours community, volunteer champions


Camrose Kodiaks trade Gibney By Murray Green

Enerplus area foreman Jim Geddes accepts the Camrose Association for Community Living community champion award from CAFCL board member Dave Kotyk.

Ron Pederson accepts the Camrose Association for Community Living volunteer champion award from CAFCL board member Cam Parker.

By Dan Jensen

erson works hard at getting top dollar for items. "He cares deeply for the cause and goes above and beyond."

Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL) honoured Enerplus as 2013 corporate community champion and Ron Pederson as volunteer champion at its annual general meeting June 10. Enerplus has been a supporter of CAFCL since 2005. "They like to get involved and they like to make a difference," said corporate community champion award presenter Dave Kotyk. "It is truly a reflection of their staff as well as their leadership." A number of Enerplus employees have had direct or indirect contact with CAFCL through friends, family and special events. "They have seen first hand the different impact the organization makes to one of its home towns," says CAFCL, "and want to see the great work CAFCL accomplishes continue for years to come." Enerplus has been a gold sponsor at CAFCL's annual charity auction.

Enerplus is an independent North American energy company with crude oil and natural gas properties throughout western Canada and the United States. "The company conducts business in a way that helps to build positive, healthy, sustainable communities," says CAFCL. "We are proud to call them our 2013 corporate community champion." Pederson has been the sole auctioneer at CAFCL's charity auction for the last ten years. "He is the guy who makes the auction a huge success through his auctioneering skill and acting antics," says CAFCL. "Ron knows exactly what to say and do to get people to open their wallets and help raise money for a cause in which he truly believes. Over the years he has offered exceptional support so a client could auction an item, drums up bids before and during the event, and ensures the crowd is thoroughly entertained." Volunteer champion award presenter Cam Parker said Ped-


CAFCL presented $1,000 human services scholarships to Kaitlin Volk and Michelle Gainsforth and a $300 Norris Bowen scholarship to Justin Sitler. Volk, who is enrolled in the practical nursing program at Norquest College, volunteered at CAFCL's Kandu Camp before joining the organization as an employee. "She has a loving and caring quality and has demonstrated that she is patient and understanding," says CAFCL. "She truly helps people who need care. People who have been touched with her caring are left with a small piece of her joy for life and smiles in their hearts." Gainsforth, who also is a CAFCL employee, has completed two terms in the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Education Certificate program. "She has become very pas-

sionate about FASD education and her greatest wish is to help remove the stigma attached to drinking while pregnant so women and their children can receive the support, assessment and diagnosis they need and deserve," says CAFCL. Sitler describes himself as a tall guy with Aspergers. "He is graduating from the Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman this year and has enrolled in an online creative writing certificate program through the University of Calgary," says CAFCL. "Justin would like to write fantasy fiction and science fiction books and publish them." The Norris Bowen Scholarship, established by Muriel Rieger, is awarded annually to an individual with a developmental disability participating in further education of any type. The human services scholarship is awarded annually to a student or students enrolled in the disabilities field or a field of related study.

Goaltender Matt Gibney will be a different kind of bear next season. The Camrose Kodiaks have traded the playing rights of 20-year-old goaltender Gibney to the Estevan Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. “We wish Matt all the best in Estevan. At the end of this past year he wanted to move closer to home for his final year of junior," explained Kodiaks' coach and general manager Boris Rybalka on why the move was made. "We know he will do very well in Estevan. Good luck Matt, and thank you for your commitment to Camrose and the Kodiaks organization.” The Camrose Kodiaks annual golf tournament will take place on Sunday, August 25, at the Camrose Golf Course. To register call the Kodiaks office at 780679-2603. Viking Cup

Former Viking Cup stars continue to make an impact on the National Hockey League even though the tournament hasn't been held in Camrose for a number of years. The Stanley Cup finalist Boston Bruins rely heavily on two former Viking Cup players. Goaltender Tuuka Rask (Finland) is tied for the most wins, is second in save percentage, tied for the most shutouts and has posted a remarkable 1.83 goals against average after four games in the final series. David Krejci (Czech) is the offensive leader with 24 points, 15 assists and is second in plus/minus with 16.

Gary Snydmiller receives Hockey Alberta development award By Murray Green

Some of the brightest hockey minds gathered in Red Deer for the Hockey Alberta’s annual general meeting to discuss changes and salute those who have contributed a lot of time and effort to the program. Hockey Alberta presented prestigious Development Awards to Lance McKinnon of Calgary and Gary Snydmiller of Camrose. "This award is presented to outstanding individuals, who have shown exceptional dedication to hockey development programs," said Hockey Alberta general manager Rob Litwinski. "Your time and dedication to coaching, mentoring and facilitating in the Hockey Alberta programs is what truly makes you deserving of this award." Gary has been a NCCP instructor since 1992 and a coach and mentor of the Alberta Cup tournament since it started. "Last year, I received an award for 25 years of service to the Alberta Cup. It is always nice to receive recognition for some of

the things you do, not that I do it for that purpose," he said. "I started out as an assistant coach with the Edmonton South team. Over the years I moved into the head coach and on to mentoring in about 2002. I don't think that I have missed an Alberta Cup for the bantam age group." The assistant coach supports the head coach and then the mentor offers suggestions on how to improve. "The mentor coach is there to oversee the program and make sure Hockey Alberta's philosophy and objectives are being met," Gary said on his changing role over the years. "Being a mentor is a nice task because you let the coach do his thing, but you can offer suggestions on how he can improve and answer questions when he asks. The whole idea of mentoring is to be a sounding board for the coach when he comes across something he is unsure about and receive direction," continued Gary. "I see the role as ensuring there is quality in the program, so the practices are well done. It

makes the coach a more effective coach. It helps coaches prepare for a tournament. Hopefully, that is something they can take back to add to the next regular season." The high level coach wanted to give something back. "I had lots of opportunities with clinics and seminars and it helped me immensely. I learned there is more to coaching than running a practice and standing behind the bench," he said. "I always felt that if you have an opportunity to receive that growth and learn, that you can share some of that knowledge. Hockey Alberta gave me opportunities and this is one way of giving something back." Gary believes that if you want a program to grow, you have to be willing to contribute your time to help. "Volunteering and helping has never been a problem. I feel cherished and obligated to help as others have for me," he added. Going from coaching elite men's hockey such as the Vikings to novice has its challenges. "Children are like sponges and want

to soak everything up, but it has its challenges as well," said Gary. "There are challenges working with adults too. The end of the day the hockey isn't much difference. You still want to have some fun." The Alberta Cup has had some coaches go on to places like the National Hockey League. "I worked with Bill Peters and Ray Bennett, who are assistant coaches in the NHL. Bill played a year with the Vikings before going to Red Deer College." He is now a coach with Mike Babcock (a former Red Deer coach) on the Detroit Red Wings. Ray is a member of the St. Louis Blues coaching staff. "You learn things from other coaches and it is a life-long experience. When I first started coaching two guys really helped me a lot. They were Clare Drake and Bill Moores at the University of Alberta," said Gary. "They were always available for me to ask questions and share information. If I had mentor models, I would have to list them both."

Gary is also thankful for getting the chance to work at Augustana. "Working in a university situation has helped me because I have more time to help in the summer," said Gary. "When I was coaching the Vikings we played Friday night and then I drove a couple hours to coach a clinic and then back for a game on Saturday night and then coach a clinic on Sunday. Now that I have a family, some of those priorities have changed." Gary received his bachelor of physical education at the University of Alberta and completed a master's two years later. He started teaching and coaching at Augustana in 1991. Besides coaching and mentoring in Hockey Alberta programs, Gary coached the Augustana Vikings for 16 years. He has also coached at the bantam triple-A, midget triple-A, midget double-A, initiation, novice and atom female levels. He was the coordinator for the Vikings and Vikings/Kodiaks hockey school during the summer.

HELP WANTED ON DAIRY FARM – Has to work with equipment and animals. Valid driver’s license is an asset. Call 780672-3048.

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.

By Samara Froland, Camrose Wildlife Stewardship Society summer coordinator

Developmental biology professor Dr. Tomislav Terzin led a presentation on butterf lies and moths at the Camrose Wildlife Stewardship Society (CWSS) weekly event last Thursday. The focus of the presentation was on the presence of false eyes in nature, especially in butterflies and moths. He showed numerous examples of organisms’ use of false eyes to scare or confuse predators. The Augustana professor brought a number of beautiful specimens to the presentation. Terzin owns thousands of insect specimens that he has purchased through internet sources over the years. He estimates that his collection has a total value of $40,000. Terzin also presented for CWSS last year, but there was an interesting addition to his presentation this year. This year the presentation included discussion of the extinct Jamaican moth, Urania sloanus that was purchased in September, 2012. The moth cost approximately $6,000 and was completely paid for by University of Alberta, Augustana Faculty staff members. Approximately 60 out of a total of 300 employees on the small campus contributed to the cost of the moth specimen. Terzin expresses his gratitude towards his fellow Augustana employees. “The entire campus was following what was going on,” said Terzin. When asked to describe the experience Terzin simply said, “It was really something special.” The extinct Jamaican moth specimen is now known as the “Augustana moth”. Terzin describes the specimen as a “new symbol of unity for Augustana”. He hopes to find sponsorship for merchandise, such as T-shirts or coffee mugs. A logo of the Jamaican moth would be printed on these and this logo could be a new symbol for Augustana. On Thursday, June 27, there will be a presentation on the piping plover, an endangered bird that lives on the beaches of the southern Canadian prairies. Amanda Rezansoss, a biologist from the Alberta Conservation Association, will provide her expertise on this shorebird.

Sole City Shoes places second in national contest By Dan Jensen

Staff at Sole City Shoes in Camrose take pride in their ability to design interesting and eyecatching window displays. "We change our displays at least twice a month," said Sole City Shoes sales manager Karen Mingo. "We see them as another way of creating advertising and bringing people into our store to shop. We have people who have seen a pair of shoes in our window displays while walking past, that catches their eye, come into the store to inquire – and most often take the shoes home with them." Mingo said the window displays are a total team effort. "There are some staff who have a real creative spirit and like putting them together and there are others who would rather opt out, but in sticking with the team mentality they take their turn and do the best they can – sometimes even surprising themselves with the creativity that can be within." Sole City Shoes designs the displays according to what is happening in Camrose at the time. Big events such as Camrose Spring Rodeo, Jaywalkers' Jamboree and Big Valley Jamboree can be featured, as well as many other events in between. The windows also feature at times seasonally appropriate footwear or new and exciting products. Current window displays feature the occurring summer shoe sale. "For the displays we try to use whatever we think would create visual interest," said Mingo. "This includes items that Daryl and Leta (Shillington, the owners of Sole City Shoes) have gathered over the many years in business, staff members' personal contributions, and additions as basic as props gathered from the great outdoors." Once a year, Clarks, the wellknown shoe company, gives retailers the opportunity to participate in their national merchandising event. Each year Clarks supplies a prop to be featured, along with their current product in the display. The design talents of Sole City Shoes have not gone unnoticed by Clarks. In 2012 the event was titled Styles of Summer, with Sole City Shoes receiving third place nationally, and recently, the 2013 event was titled Cruisin' with Clarks, with Sole City Shoes receiving second place nationally. "The fact that we placed second and third of all the stores in Canada, some of which have professional designers, is huge and should be recognized. I am so proud of our team," said Mingo.
