For weeks, a committee of dedicated volunteers has been discussing, planning and implementing new ideas for

Canada Day Celebrations in Camrose this Friday, July 1. With the Canada Day itinerary now finalized, it looks to be an exciting, entertaining and fun-filled day. People will be able to get in a celebratory mood as early as 8:30 a.m., at the Community Centre, with an inexpensive breakfast. This breakfast is being presented by the Swans and Roses Lions Club. Opening ceremonies at Camrose and District Centennial Museum, which kick off over 10 hours of live entertainment, will take place at 11:00 a.m. The always-exciting Duck Race, hosted by Rotaract, takes place at 4:00 p.m. at the west edge of the Community Centre parking lot. (Ducks are still available by calling 780-679-5085). And, let us not forget about the much-anticipated grand finale – Canada Day fireworks at dusk, high over the open field immediately north of Max McLean Arena. Visit our website:

Wildrose Party holds candidates' forum By Murray Green

Two Wetaskiwin-Camrose Wildrose Alliance Party candidates shared their views on several topics at a forum held at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre on June 11. Candidates Trevor Miller and Orest Werezak spoke for five minutes on various topics and then they answered questions from the floor. "We want you to better understand our party on various issues, and in particular, where our candidates stand on the issues," said Leo Regehr, vice-president of policy and chair of the forum. "We have three candidates, Tim Essington wasn't able to attend." Current Camrose County councillor Trevor Miller expanded on his background. "After graduating from the University of Alberta with a master's in plant science in 2000, I moved to the Camrose area where I became a canola breeder for Cargill. My wife Lora is a respiratory therapist at Alberta Health Services and together we are raising three young children." Trevor has always wanted to help in local politics. "It was a great ambition of mine to become politically active and engage in my community. In 2007, I campaigned to become a county councillor in my division. My daunting task was to meet and build a relationship with as many people as I could in a short time. I knocked on every door in my area and I learned so much from this experience. I met some very interesting

Orest WerezakTrevor Miller

people and I must admit it was very exhilarating. Many offered me ideas for my platform." He was re-elected in 2010. In both elections he had competition. "I focused on building and maintaining relationships with constituents creating dialog around issues, solutions and modelled the qualities of effective and accountable leadership." He closely watched Premier Ralph Klein make some tough decisions. "I was proud to be a PC supporter back then. Unfortunately, this once sustainable vision has since been eroded. My values now line with the Wildrose Alliance Party and I believe in controlled spending, more local decision making and true democracy. I believe the Wildrose Party is following the true conservative values."

Trevor said he would make a strong candidate for the next election. "My youth is a strategic edge that allows for new beginnings, fresh ideas and energized optimism. I'm excited and energized at the prospect of overturning the Conservative government in the next election." Orest then offered his views on the riding. "I want to make things happen. I want work brought here. We are losing employment to bigger cities and we need to bring this back. As a candidate, we have to go out and find these things and bring them back to our constituency," said Orest. "We need our young people here to make our community strong." He suggested opening up Highway 21 at Alix south to con-

nect with Delburne to bring more people off of Highway 2 and into this area. "Transportation and education needs to be looked at. This province has no money, why is that? The government introduced a royalty package that scared us all and businesses ran to Saskatchewan. I work in the oil patch, own a trucking company and guess where we are working. How do we solve this problem? We need to get all four of the western energy ministers together and set the same rates for everyone so we are not playing one province against another." Orest is a supporter of a bullet train to run along Highway 21 at 500 kilometers an hour. He wants to bring more work opportunities to the area. "My family owns a farm near Daysland and we decided that wasn't good enough. We moved into the oil patch and have been there ever since." A question was asked about the long wait times in the health care system. "I think the funding should follow the person. If they need the care here, they should stay here," said Trevor. "They need to be close to loved ones." Orest added, "The biggest thing is that the government keeps switching the health care name. We are administration heavy. We have far too many generals and not enough foot soldiers. Let's reduce the number of generals and this will help. In education as well, we need people who are involved in the system to help find solutions. They are the

professionals and government shouldn't be making the decisions for them." The current government has plenty of funds for new schools, but won't give money to school boards for staffing. "Right now the PCs have a priority list that they work off of that list," said Trevor. "They are spending millions on schools in the middle of nowhere, but they need to put the actual dollars to the people. School boards need solid resources for books used in learning, for teachers and for training. It seems these things are the first to be cut. We believe the funding should follow the student." Orest said the funding is here. "Our economic engine is oil and gas. We need to turn that on again and then we would have funding. Like I said before, we need to have the stable amounts across western Canada." Currently the PCs and the Wildrose Party have been running even in popularity polls. A question was asked about vote splitting. "I don't see that as a concern," said Orest Werezak. "The government has shown they can't do this, so what is your other choice? We are the choice. We are totally different. Do you want the same old thing, or something new with new ideas? Our candidate has to be ready to wear out a pair of boots and rap a lot of knuckles. This has to be a full time job in order to compete with Mr. Olson." Continued on page 12

BRSD and Augustana sign historic agreement By Christopher Thrall

Few Alberta communities the size of Camrose can boast that they have a University campus and a school division office located within their city borders. But since Camrose is lucky enough to have both, it makes sense for them to work together whenever possible for the benefit of students, staff and the community. That’s the premise behind a historic new agreement signed by representatives of the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta and Battle River School Division June 24. In one of his last acts as Dean of Augustana, Dr. Roger Epp joined BRSD Board Chair

Cheryl Smith and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Larry Payne in signing the first such Memorandum of Understanding to be created in this area. “I don’t know why no one else is doing this,” says Dean Roger Epp. “Only two months separates what we do and we never talk to each other, let alone think about what knowledge we can transfer back and forth and how we can benefit each other.” “We’ve always had a good working relationship with Augustana,” says Ms. Smith. “It’s a great pleasure to formalize that relationship and consider even more ways in which we can work

together. It’s going to be great for our community” “Augustana is a gem,” adds Dr. Payne. “I’m very pleased to make a commitment to working even closer together with this wonderful institution in the future.” According to Dean Epp, the school division has already provided exceptional opportunities for Augustana students. “Our music students, for example, were put in places where their learning starts to be meaningful,” he said, referring to university student community service-learning placements in Battle River schools. The Memorandum of Understanding outlines ways in which the two organizations might offer

future educational partnerships that are mutually beneficial, such as successful programs such as Reading University, which will return this summer to Augustana campus. This year will see the largest cohort of third-grade students who require reading support. Other partnerships could include: Providing practicum placements in Battle River schools for Augustana students in the Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Education program; Creating for-credit opportunities at the Augustana campus for exceptional grade 12 students; Provision of summer learn-

ing opportunities, including Reading University, on the Augustana campus; joint recruitment and cultural / educational support of international students; collaboration in athletics; collaboration in the performing arts; collaboration in professional development of staff; collaboration in environmental sustainability initiatives; mutual support in the event of emergency response and business recovery; sharing of expertise with respect to pedagogy, educational technology and the high school to university student transition.

Relay for Life celebrates stories


A cancer survivors' lap started the Relay for Life event that raised over $92,000 on June 17 and 18 in Camrose. Crystal Nahajow ich, front right, shared her story with many survivors. The 24 teams of participants had 12 hours of fun at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. By Murray Green

The Relay for Life honoured cancer survivors who fought back and raised over $90,000 on June 17 and 18 in Camrose. When the groggy participants were packing up, they were excited to learn they made a difference. "So far, we have raised $92,210. However, we anticipate that will increase as companies receive matching donations and last minute funds come in," said chair Shauna Arrowsmith. "People are able to pledge the teams online until August 15th, at which time we will have a firm total for the year." The 24 teams of participants

exceeded this year's target. "Our goal was $86,000, so I think we are doing pretty well, thanks to the generosity of so many," said Shauna. Honorary chairperson Crystal Nahajowich shared her story with other survivors, which inspired the teams to work harder. "I first took part three years ago and wondered what is the survivor's role. A survivor is someone who has had his or her whole world yanked out from under him or her and yet still keeps moving forward," explained Crystal. "It is someone who is afraid to turn the lights out at night or gives someone

a little extra hug when saying goodbye because he or she knows life can change in an instant. A survivor is a warrior." Three years earlier, Crystal's life changed dramatically. "I first heard the words, you have cancer. I was 25 years old and five months pregnant. Before that, my life was perfect. After stage one, I was told everything was back to normal. Then I was told it is at stage two," said Crystal who hung on for a long roller-coaster ride. "After some tests I was told it is okay. But, no is wasn't okay. It looks like it has spread. More tests are needed. Yes, it spread. There was nothing more they can

do. Then, I had another test and it showed I was cancer free. We decided to consult with one more doctor. Finally in February 2009, I was given a clean bill of health. After five surgeries, countless prods and pokes, endless drinks of stuff I made it through without chemotherapy." Crystal still remembers all of the emotions she had to endure. "We are dealt with things we can't control. But, that doesn't leave us without choices. I chose to fight back. When I heard it was genetic, I chose to fight back even harder for my kids, my future grandchildren and everyone else. I will do my part so that one day

we can find a cure for cancer. My children have a 50 per cent chance of having cancer. I don't want them or other people to fear those three words." The Relay for Life has given her a chance to give back. "This is my opportunity to remember survivors, loved ones lost, caregivers and to fight back," said Crystal, prior to the survivor's lap around the Camrose Regional Exhibition. "I will fight back for myself, my children and for my grandchildren. I will fight for you and your children so we don't have to live in fear. I choose to stand up and fight."

United Church women gather in Camrose June 13 By Alex Oliver

Fifty-four United Church women from across the Alberta Coronation Presbytery observed the theme of Soaring Spirits on June 13 at Camrose United Church. Coronation Presbytery covers a large area from Camrose to Macklin, Saskatchewan, and south to Acadia Valley. Jan Edwards of Camrose who chaired the celebration said, “Over the past five years, we have held an annual gathering in different parts of the presbytery. Different pastoral charges plan and organize an enriching program.” She and the Camrose Planning Committee of Mary Ann Pastuck, Doreen Walline, Bonnie Oliver, Jean Martens, Gloria Wimmer, and Doris Hirsch felt justified in planning a lighthearted gathering because all of them had been so busy with many church responsibilities during the winter. Plus, coincidentally, this event was planned for Whit Monday, a celebratory day in the church calendar. The ladies registered by

Coronation Presbytery United Church ladies fill the room with unrestricted laughter and uninhibited animation during their Laughing Yoga session.

10:00 a.m. at which time an opening worship and memorial service recognized United Church women who had died in the past years in the Coronation Presbytery. When each deceased person’s name was read, a white rose was placed on the altar. Music became a dominant part of the day. Darryl Dewalt and Joy-Anne Murphy of Cam-

rose United Church led the members in singing, bell ringing, and drumming. “I really enjoyed the musical instrument session,” said Shari Muzyka and Vera Rude who had driven the 300 kilometers from Cereal. “It was wonderful to try our hand at making music, especially for those of us who can’t sing.”

At noon, lunch was supplied by the Camrose United Church Women. At this time the participants had the opportunity to discuss church matters and browse through the book display. Florence Boden from Meeting Creek led an exercise workshop using Laughter Yoga which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing.

“Laughter does make the best use of what we do when we’re having fun,” observed Melanie Weaver from Camrose. “When we laugh we breathe deeply and properly.” Doris Hirsch of Camrose had the ladies share stories from their experiences in their home churches and in their personal lives. The day ended with a closing worship and communion. “I got to know more people from Camrose,” remarked Marian Peers from Acadia Valley United Church, 350 kilometers south-east of Camrose. “As well, the memorial service was very touching, a nice way to honour members who have passed away.” General Council Committee member, Donna Krucik, who came as an invited guest from Edmonton Presbytery, commented that she enjoyed the pace of the whole day, the friendship, and the participation. She felt welcomed, rejuvenated, and inspired by the day’s activities. And as Shari Muzyka pointed out, “I would certainly attend again.”

Incoming Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger visits with students and staff. By Dan Jensen and Murray Green

New University of Alberta, Augustana Campus dean, Dr. Allen Berger is eager to begin work in Camrose. He was at the campus on June 24 to attend the council of public liberal arts colleges. "It was a fabulous conference," said an excited Berger. "It is an organization of 26 public universities that share a common mission. They are all located in the United States, except for Augustana." The new dean, replacing Dr. Roger Epp, made his third trip to the Rose City. "I was first here when I was interviewed for the job last November. Then my wife and I were here again in February to make arrangements for housing. At that time, I had a chance to meet with some faculty and staff." Dr. Berger will move to Camrose in July and begin his employment on August 2. "Roger is leaving Augustana in a great position, those are going to be big shoes for me to fill. We have a chance to build from a position of strength." He believes good things are happening at Augustana and in the community. "We are working on quality issues relating to undergraduate research and building opportunities for students in the community through internships of various kinds. The sustainability initiatives on campus are exciting, so this is a strong institution. I think there

are other areas where we have work to do." Berger is ready to face some challenges such as increasing enrolment and improving student retention. "It's too early to set official goals. I will certainly bring ideas, but goal-setting needs to be done collaboratively. I said in my interview (for the position) that I didn't believe institutions of higher education worked very well if they were managed in a top-down fashion." He said his arrival was good timing because the university just went through a unit review process, which is a comprehensive review of overall quality at the institution. "External reviewers were brought in from other universities so we have now, as we head into the new school year, all of the comments and critiques to build on as we try to set goals for the future. My timing is fortuitously good because I get to benefit from all of the work the campus did in putting together a comprehensive self study." Berger knows the university has a strong alumni. "I have discovered there are a lot of former students out there and the loyalty they have to this institution is a wonderful resource to draw upon and a real strength. I am meeting a lot of people in town who have been very generous toward Augustana. It was nice to be able to make those acquaintances and friendships." Dr. Berger was at the Uni-

versity of Maine at Farmington, which is the state's public liberal arts college. He was the provost and vice-president of academics and is a professor of anthropology. He holds a PhD and master's degrees from Columbia University and a bachelor's degree from the University of Chicago. "Like Augustana, it is a small residential campus with a focus on liberal arts education. It has an enrolment about twice the size of Augustana. So when people here talk about an aspiration of eventually growing towards 2,000, that is a size that feels very familiar and comfortable." He has felt comfortable in Camrose because the two learning institutions are similar. "There are incredible similarities, but on the other hand a lot of differences that I am undoubtedly naive about at the current time and will need to learn more about. I am working from an American context and the Canadian context I can't necessarily assume that things are the same." Berger is thrilled to be associated with the University of Alberta. "I think we benefit tremendously from that affiliation and I would like to think that the main campus benefits from their affiliation with us as well. We can be a place to pilot new initiatives, demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning, and hopefully set an exemplary standard for the rest of the university."

Trevor reflected on the differences. "People are wondering what the differences are. Are we going to join the PCs once you are elected in? We don't want that because that is not change. We are more conservative with a vision of sustainability." A question was asked about the transmission lines. "Our position is to scrap the proposed lines because they are not for Albertans," said Orest. "The government believes the resources are for them. They are not, they belong to Albertans like you and me. We would scrap this idea because we can do better." Trevor agreed the proposed bills are not for the people. "It steps on the toes of democracy. Bill 50 allows the government to do whatever they want. The government wants to be able to build the transmission lines wherever they want and then make you pay for it. They did make amendments, but still haven't addressed landowners' rights. We need to listen to people's views." Party members will have the opportunity to vote for a candidate on July 4 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre in Camrose.

Seniors' Chat What's In YOUR Wallet? By Sheralyn Dobos, Program Director Family Violence

Your identity may be a hot commodity! Identity theft happens when someone takes possession of another person’s identifying information. Use of that stolen information is identity fraud. Being vigilant can reduce risk of being victimized by these traumatizing crimes. How common is identity theft? Consider these statistics: Canada had 100 per cent more Social Insurance Numbers than people. Alberta has 50 per cent more health care numbers than people. Identity theft is a lucrative business. Take a few simple steps to protect your valuable information. Start by looking in your wallet. Among the various pieces of plastic and paper, do you find your Social Insurance Number? Or your birth certificate? Lighten your wallet by removing these two important documents. Neither is needed in your dayto-day transactions. Carrying these documents on your person increases the risk of them being lost or stolen. Many credit applications ask for your Social Insurance Number, but reputable companies will not require it. Your employer, your bank (for savings and investment accounts), and forms required by the provincial and federal governments are the only places you are required to provide your SIN. Using it as identification in other situations provides more access to your personal information and identity than is warranted. Instead, put your birth certificate and Social Insurance card in a safe place at home, or better yet, in a safe deposit box at your bank. If you have been using them as proof of identification, get a secure photo I.D. card, much like a driver’s license, issued by the Province through your local Registry agent, such as Camrose Registry. Next check your automobile. Do you sometimes leave your cell phone, laptop or loose credit or debit card receipts where they are visible? Each of these is an invitation to a would-be thief and it takes only seconds for a breakin to happen. When was the last time you changed your banking PIN numbers? Changing them a few times per year is a good practice. Avoid choosing obvious combinations for PIN numbers like your date of birth, phone number, and consecutive letters or numbers (12345 is the most commonly used combination). Always shield the keypad when you are making a purchase with a PIN-protected card. Are you a traveler who uses a credit card? Be sure to call your credit card company and advise them of both your departure and return dates. They will put this information on your account to “red-flag” unauthorized use out of province after your return home. Continued on page 25

Unique fundraiser for Veselka Dancers Submitted

This spring the Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dance Tour to Ukraine Travel Group was given the opportunity to farm 50 acres of recently broken hay land in the Hay Lakes area. The land was donated by Marvin Schultz. When he heard the group was raising funds to take approximately 20 of their dancers to Ukraine in 2013 he offered

them the land. Local farmers and dealers came together to provide the inputs and put in the canola crop. Andrukow Group Solutions Inc. Camrose worked together with Monsanto to donate the DKL 7345 RR Canola Seed, as well as the Round Up required to spray the field. Edberg Crop Management supplied all of the fertilizer. Kupka Farms supplied the seeding

CAFCL recognizes Champions of 2011 By Dan Jensen

Camrose Association for Community Living recognized Brian and Colleen Nelson, Darryl Rott and Vanessa Barr as Champion individual, business and volunteer donors respectively at its Together We Shine annual meeting June 13. "Without them we wouldn't be able to do the work we do," said CAFCL chief executive officer Esther McDonald. Brian Nelson is a former CAFCL employee, while his wife Colleen is well acquainted with the organization's work as principal of Ecole Sifton School. "They have a long history relative to the clientele that this organization serves," said CAFCL board member Dave Kotyk. The Nelsons have been longtime supporters of the CAFCL charity auction, going back to the time it was held at the Elks' Hall and most of the items that were sold were used. They were also supporters of the Burgess Building campaign, and were generous enough to donate one year's crop from their farm. "There was volunteer effort at the farm during the year, so it was a good use of the community's contribution," explained Kotyk. The Nelsons have contributed to CAFCL in other ways as well, most of which are unseen. "If a youngster can't afford the camp fees, somehow or other the camp fees get paid and the youngster can attend the camp," said Kotyk. "They do a lot of the little things that are understanding and helpful to an organization like this." Darryl Rott, owner of Pics Photographics, has been a supporter of CAFCL for the last seven years, providing the photography for the annual theme displays and posters. "He is very concerned about pleasing the customer," said

award presenter Robin Good. "It doesn't matter how much time it takes him to do something, as long as he gives you the result that you are looking for." Rott is also a friend to the

clients of CAFCL who are on the other end of the camera. "He helps to make them really proud of the work they have done," said Good. Vanessa Barr has been vol-

unteering with CAFCL the last three years. "We are all of different ages, different backgrounds; we all have different jobs and hobbies, but it is certain that we all have

one thing in common, and that is our admiration for this young woman," said award presenter Stacey Olstad. After getting started with the CAFCL summer camp, Barr became involved with the organization's respite program and several other activities and events. "When she started working with a family here we saw her true passion," said Olstad. "Vanessa developed a relationship with the family, as well as with a lot of kids we have here within camp and the respite program. She brings energy and compassion and enthusiasm, as well as the gift of friendship to many people." CAFCL presented a $1,000 scholarship to Vanessa Tellier, a mother of four, a part-time employee of the association, a community volunteer and a fourth-year student at the Augustana campus of the University of Alberta. "She has done extensive volunteering," said award presenter Carolyn Andersen. "More recently she initiated a project in an attempt to make Camrose a greener city, and made a presentation to Camrose City council." In her application to work at CAFCL, Tellier said she enjoys helping and making a difference in the lives of others. "At the end of the day I want to go home and know that somehow I have helped the individuals I have worked with," she said. The purpose of the CAFCL scholarship is to foster awareness of those who work with persons who have developmental disabilities. "Working in the industry of helping people is truly more than passion – it is a profession," said Andersen. "It is meaningful work that makes stronger communities. The association is proud to offer these scholarships to continue investing in the staff of tomorrow."

CAFCL receives accreditation for additional three years By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Association for Community Living has been granted accreditation for another three years. Persons with Developmental Disabilities Central Region CEO Wayne Morrow presented a level two accreditation certificate to association CEO Esther McDonald at CAFCL's annual general meeting June 13. Level two accreditation is the highest level that can be achieved through the Alberta Council for Disability Services. "The three-year level two accreditation tells us that the board and staff have worked very hard and continue to work very hard in striving for excellence," said Morrow. "It tells us the association focuses on quality of services and quality of life. It also tells the people that are supported, their families, and the community that it is a quality, caring and reputable organization that is second to no other." Camrose Association for Community Living serves a large portion of east central Alberta, with satellite offices in Tofield, Killam, Viking, Wainwright and Provost. The association has 110

employees and 50 volunteers, including the board of directors. "We worked at increasing the skills of staff and developing quality staff," said McDonald in her CEO report. "We piloted a project with four other organizations in east central Alberta for training staff in the foundations of the industry using video over computer networks and distance education techniques. It was

hugely successful and is being accepted by the Alberta Council of Disability Services as a provincial strategy for recruiting and training staff." In addition to adults with developmental disabilities, CAFCL serves adults with acquired brain injury, children with special health and developmental concerns, and families at risk. The TIPS program

teaches pregnant moms to be aware of the dangers of drinking alcohol, and shows them that some disabilities (FASD and those caused by shaking the baby) can be 100 per cent prevented. "We have a couple of our staff who are going into the schools and making presentations," said McDonald. CAFCL's vision is to be a

community focused organization that provides services to people to develop skills and build quality of life. "We want each person to be an accepted and participating member of the community," said McDonald. The majority of funding CAFCL receives (86 per cent) comes from provincial and federal sources.

It was a thank you for a job well done. ATB Financial presented its 2011 President's League award to Camrose branch manager Ron Palecek at a reception at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton June 10. The award recognizes branch managers for the outstanding work they have performed over the years with ATB. "It means quite a bit to me," said Palecek. "It is an honour that not many receive." Palecek has been employed by ATB Financial for the last 19 years, serving in various capacities at branches across the province. He has been manager of the branch in Camrose for the last two years. Along with the award, Palecek received a $2,500 travel certificate. "We haven't decided where we want to go yet," said Palecek. "My sister wants to go to Hawaii, so we may join her there, but as of yet nothing has been really firmed up." ATB provides financial services to 680,000 Albertans and Alberta-based businesses. In October 2008, ATB was named one of Alberta’s Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Canada Day thoughts I have just reviewed the schedule of events planned for Canada’s birthday on July first in Camrose. It promises fun and entertainment for all ages, from tasty morning breakfast until fireworks explode and colourfully twinkle in the dark night sky. We commend the planning committee members for their commitment to this project, all those who have contributed financially, and the many volunteers who will help on July 1 to make it actually happen. Celebrating Canada’s birthday is fun and games – but it is more than that. For some it is a deeply emotional experience. I recently spoke with a silverhaired baby boomer who says she cannot sing our national anthem, O Canada, all the way through without getting teary-eyed. The words move me, too; they fill me with gratitude for my good fortune in living in a country where peace, safety and justice prevail; the words both inspire and remind me that I have a job to do in caring for our far and wide land blessed with a vast number of resources: fertile soil, fresh water, green forests, a multitude of minerals, and a rich mosaic of peoples who demonstrate to the world that those of different languages and cultures can live at peace with one another. Even though we often sing the words of our national anthem, which we memorized long ago, I recommend reading the words occasionally, too – in a quest for deeper contemplation of their meaning. The following is the latest version that was proclaimed on July 1, 1980:

O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The true north strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada, We stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. For me this poem is much more than a call for patriotism, and perhaps military power to guard our country. For me it is a call to appreciate the great blessings we experience in our vast and beautiful Canada and to be diligent in caring for our environment, our peoples, and maintaining peace, safety and justice. With those sober thoughts, I stand (or sit when I can’t get up) totally attentive and thankful when I am exposed to the strains of O Canada. On the global scene, Canada is consistently ranked high on the list of most livable countries. It is not perfect but, working together, we can continue to strive to make it so. Happy Canada Day! May the celebration make us ever more thoughtful, devoted and appreciative citizens!

Recently, this news came in an email: In Canada the Old Age Pension went up under 1 per cent, whereas the Canada Pension went up 0 per cent in 2010. The Government did not have any money for the seniors, veterans, and orphans, etc. Yet they provided substantial aid to Haiti, Chile, Turkey and Pakistan. Now, does this make sense? At the same time, some 8,000 refugees snuck into Canada and we provided them with free health care, food and clothing, education, etc., plus much more income than we provide for our needy Canadians. Well, we voted them into power with a majority government, so they can do whatever they want to do regardless of our objection. This is a quotation: “We get the government we deserve.” We all had the power to do something about these things at the polling booth but that opportunity is gone by for

a long period of time. So, we can keep on being the underdog in our Canada because apparently we like it that way. Mary E. Ringwall Warke, Camrose

ing. The system was specifically engineered to match the accurate dynamics of Enclave's interior. The system is also included with the available rear DVD entertainment system that features a 200 mm overhead screen, giving your invited guests in the second and third rows a show of their own.

By Dan Jensen

The 2011 Buick Enclave at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC delivers all that you could expect in a luxury crossover and more. Winner of a Consumers Digest Best Buy Award in 2010, the Enclave is both stylish and capable. "It's meticulous in its design and craftsmanship yet capable of seating up to eight people in real comfort," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The technology is equally adapt at answering what were previously seen as contradictory goals by delivering abundant power with remarkable fuel efficiency.

All-Wheel Drive

Live for the moment

Enclave's robust performance is highlighted by the 3.6 litre V6 engine that generates 288 horsepower. Direct injection and variable valve timing help to optimize fuel efficiency with an 8.4 litre/100 km highway fuel consumption rating – tops amount all eight-seat crossovers. Versatile

Enclave offers a standard seven-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs. The available eight-seat configuration includes 60/40 split-bench seats in both the second and third rows, providing extraordinary flexibility to handle a mix of passengers and cargo. With the second- and thirdrow seats folded flat, the Enclave offers a vast 3,265 litres of cargo space.

The standard SmartSlide second-row seat improves rearseat access. The extraordinary level of quiet, achieved through dozens of distinct QuietTuning acoustic technologies that reduce, block and absorb noise. Also worthy of note is the luxurious comfort of the seats, enhanced by 1,400 hours of real-world evaluation. Perforatedleather-appointedseats on CXL2 models are heated and cooled. Key design elements on the Enclave include the stylish analogue clock and the distinctive saddle-shaped console that houses the six-speed automatic transmission shifter. The attention to detail is evident in features like the lapis blue gauge lighting and

the genuine mahogany accents on the steering wheel. The steering wheel also features audio system and standard Bluetooth controls, furthering the driver's complete command of the Enclave environment. Automatic tri-zone climate controls extend privileges to front and rear passengers, who are given the ability to select their preferred cabin temperature. The entertainment system is of an equally high calibre. Standard features include 130 channels of programming with the standard XM Satellite Radio offering the largest playlist anywhere.

Driving through rain, sleet, snow, slush and ice is a reality that is all too familiar for drivers in our country. For that reason, it is worth learning a bit more about Enclave's available intelligent active electronic All-Wheel Drive system. It's activated automatically without pushing any buttons, monitoring traction at all four wheels continuously. When wheel slippage is detected, the system directs power to the wheels with the best grip. Unlike passive systems that react only to wheel slippage, Enclave's proactive AWD goes further by reading a wide variety of vehicle conditions. By constantly monitoring these factors, the system continually optimizes power distribution between all wheels. This results in both enhanced slippery surface traction and dry road performance. Enclave also keeps passengers safe with StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation, traction control, Panic Brake Assist and anti-lock brakes. New rollover sensing technology can predict in a fraction of a second whether a rollover is likely to occur. If it senses a rollover, the system sends a signal

Pretensioners reduce safety belt slack, and load limiters moderate the load of the safety belt on occupants in a crash. Both technologies work together to help keep occupants in place during a crash. All Buicks, including the Enclave, feature the safety and security of OnStar technology. In the event of a crash, OnStar's automatic crash response alerts first responders to get medical assistance on site as quickly as possible.

Have you ever entered an old abandoned farm building and heard a shuffling sound coming from the top floor? Well it may be Turkey Vultures, not ghosts, responsible for the strange noises. At last week’s environmental education program, wildlife biologist Wayne Nelson explained that turkey vultures often nest in old abandoned buildings and the movement of the nestlings is often mistaken for ghostly footsteps on the top floors. Wayne explained that relatively little is known about turkey vultures but through wing tagging and population monitoring there is hope to learn more. During the presentation he told the audience some of the adventures he’d had while monitor-

ing, such as actually lifting up a female turkey vulture to count her young. The Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship has a number of other exciting events coming up. This week on June 28, 7 p.m. at the Stoney Creek Centre, join us for a presentation on the benefits of eating local, learn about some fantastic local food opportunities, and hear about the community garden and good food box initiative here in Camrose. Next week, July 5, 7 p.m., at the Stoney Creek Centre, come out and learn some easy to use sustainability tips and then, weather permitting, take a walk and help to clean up the trails outside of the Centre.

On the road ‌ City works on a very complex budget By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has authorized the preparation of a three-year operating budget based on fixed numbers for 2012 and forecast numbers for 2013 and 2014. The budget will serve as council's guide for future planning. "It will not lock council in to any future expenditures," said Deputy Mayor Gerry Galenza at council's June 13 meeting. Councillor Max Lindstrand said he likes the term "forecast" numbers because forecasting is all that council and administration can do when the lion's share of expenditures come from salaries related to the cost of living. Councillor Daryl Shillington said that while he sees real advantages to a three-year budget, it is important that the budget be flexible enough to allow council to react to changing conditions and environments. Manager of Financial Services Diane Urkow said the threeyear budget will assist council in anticipating the financial impacts of current programs and capital planning, as well as reduce time for budget preparation and approval processes in non approval years. On the other side, Urkow said a three-year operating budget would restrict choices of future councils and require some changes of policy. Council moved towards multiyear budgeting in 2010 with the adoption of a 2010 to 2014 fiveyear capital budget, which Urkow said has been very beneficial for planning purposes, and for linking planned revenues and expenditures. In 2010, council initially approved only the first year (2010) before approving all five years. A similar process has been followed in 2011, with the first year (2011) receiving approval to date. Voting against the motion to adopt the multi-year operating budget was councillor Brandon Blatz. "I am not convinced that the current capital five-year plan that we are using has been much of a blazing success thus far, but it may very well be in the future," he said. "I am also not convinced that now is the right time for something like this." The new City of Camrose strategic plan, Going Forward, the Roadmap to 2015, adopts decision making protocols as a strategic priority, and includes a deliverable to develop a three-year operating budget cycle for 2012 to 2014. Urkow said there has been varied buy-in from other municipalities to multi-year budgets. "Some other municipalities have implemented multi-year operating budgets, but usually with a phase-in process. Many municipalities utilize a one-year operating budget with some reporting no plans to move to a multi-year process."

Canada Day celebrations have a proud past Submitted by Debra Hannaford

The excitement is on as the countdown begins for the 2011 Canada Day Celebrations, themed, “A Proud Past, A Bright Future,” sponsored by the City of Camrose, Heritage Canada and many generous local donors. “The most rewarding part of planning the Canada Day celebrations is seeing families coming out and enjoying the event,” said chair Jane Cherry-Lemire. Starting the day will be a pancake breakfast, hosted by the Swans and Roses Lions Club from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the west end of the Community Centre. Cost for the breakfast is $7 and children under five eat for free. The celebration then moves to the Centennial Museum for the opening ceremonies beginning at 11 a.m. where local dignitaries will be in attendance, along with Piper Alex Oliver and a Royal Canadian Legion Colour party. Throughout the day, appearing on the same stage and following the opening ceremonies, there will be live entertainment,

City of Camrose Community Arts Director Jane Cherry-Lemire (second from left)and Canada Day event planner Courtney Leonhardt (left) presented sponsorship plaques to Dave Jewell of Canadian Tire, Dave Stolee of the Camrose Rotary Club, and Tom Niven of the Loyal Order of Moose, at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre. The sponsors help fund fireworks and Canada Day activities.

including demonstrations by Fox Tae Kwon-Do, performances by Teryn Kowalchuk, Jessica Dostie, One Percent Yellow, Maurice and Sig, professional children’s

entertainers Lee and Sandy, The Wireman, Ashley Sacha, Brown Paper Bags, and the Kim Neufeld Band. Join the fun at the Centennial Museum where interpretive

tours will be done from noon to 6 p.m. and at 3 p.m. when the cake is being cut. “Another exciting event this year is the first man-made annu-

al Rubber Duck Race, hosted by Rotaract Club of Camrose that begins at 4 p.m.,” said Jane. “It is to be held at Rudy Swanson Park and is sure to be a great time.” Proceeds from the Duck Race will benefit the Learning Together Program. From noon until 8 p.m. there are lots of activities being planned, carnival games, where everyone wins a prize, barrel raffle, souvenirs, toddlers' corner, face painting, castle bounce, fun house, Mirror Lake Express train rides, 4-H Crazy Critters, chicken bingo and a dunk tank. As well, there are still openings available for the yard sale until June 22. Thanks to the wonderful community support we will have a great fireworks display again at dusk (around 11 p.m.).

On the road ‌ Chrysler teams up with Sea Serpents By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Sea Serpents and Camrose Chrysler have provided yet another example of what can happen when you join hands to work together. Camrose Chrysler promised last month that it would donate $100 for every car it sold during the month of May to the Camrose Sea Serpents Swim Club. In return, the Camrose Sea Serpents agreed to pass out business cards telling potential car buyers what Camrose Chrysler was doing. The end result was a $5,000 donation from the dealership to the swim club June 7. Camrose Chrysler general manager Mike Rodin says he strongly believes in the value of the Camrose Sea Serpents. "I have two kids in the program and I know that all smaller clubs need a little bit of help in the form of community sponsorship," he said. "I thought this was a good way for our business to help." Rodin said it was fun to see the members of the Sea Serpents take an interest in what they were doing. "The kids were pretty excited and talking about it quite a bit." A few car buyers told Rodin they chose to visit Camrose Chrysler out of their desire to help the swim club. "There was definitely the interest because we had it in our print advertising and our radio advertising, which we do quite a bit of," said Rodin. "I know the awareness was out there." The main goal of the whole fund-raising/sales program was to do something different and get the community involved. "There are so many different things we can support and I didn't just want to sit down and write out a cheque," said Rodin. "I thought it was a good idea to get some extra promotion for the Sea Serpents and for our business as well." Camrose Sea Serpents president Tamara Saby said the donation will help offset the club's expenses and keep registration costs at a level that are affordable to families. "Our costs have almost doubled from what they were a few years ago with the need for more pool time and a bigger coaching staff. We're happy with the way our club has grown from 34 swimmers ten years ago to 80 swimmers this year, but keeping a balanced budget has been more than a little bit of a challenge." The Camrose Sea Serpents received a donation of $4,500 last year from Central Agencies. "Camrose has just been so supportive of the Camrose Sea Serpents," said Saby. "Every venture that we have taken on has been met with nothing but huge support. It is kind of a reflection of how the community as a whole values our club and the little citizens that we are producing."

Relay for Life future is in good hands By Murray Green

Relay for Life organizers hope the final tallies for this year's edition reaches over $100,000. The ninth Relay for Life held on June 17 and 18 at the Camrose Regional Exhibition was a success with a little help from some dedicated youth. Cassandra Westfall of Bashaw helped the organizers every chance she had. "I participated in the relay before and I didn't want to see it end," said the 14-year-old. "I wasn't sure if they had enough committee members, so I decided to help. I had some free time, so I thought why not. I made the placemats for the survivors' dinner and went to schools to laminate them myself. I also organized a team called the Rubber Duckys. It symbolizes children's cancer." Cassandra planned to be in the relay the year before she was diagnosed with cancer, but couldn't help because of prior commitments. "I like to be involved as a team because it is lots of fun," the Grade 9 student said. "It is a great way to raise money. You also learn how to be a leader, keep things organized and you speak to a lot of people."

Cassandra Westfall

Cassandra says it is a wonderful experience and everyone should be involved. "Being on the committee was good because you have a part in organizing and

you get to know what is planned before it happens. Just hanging out is fun. The most important thing I have learned is that anything can happen in life. It might not go on. It can end. Always tell people you love them and appreciatethem." Cassandra raised more than $400 herself and her team went over the $3,000 mark in fundraising.

Desyrae LeClercq

Eight-year-old captain of the Butterflies of Hope team, Desyrae LeClercq, was a driving force in raising money for cancer at the Relay for Life. "When I was in Grade 1, my grandma died from cancer," said the current Grade 3 student at Sparling school. "I was upset about that. Lots of people are upset about it, not just me. People lose loved ones to cancer and are sad." Since then Desyrae had a vision to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society in this year's Relay for Life, and spearheaded putting a team together, in memory of her loving grandmother, Gwen Sandstrom. "Sometimes I just go to my room and look at pictures and wish she was still here," said Desyrae. "I can help by telling others with cancer to keep going. Do what you normally do and don't worry about it. Be okay with it, so you don't worry as much." Her family hopes for a cure

so others don't have to go through what they did. "Our family always hopes for better and more people survive. I added butterflies because I really like butterflies and thought it was a good start to the name. There are lots of decorations with butterflies in them." Her nine-member team is made up of mostly family, along with a couple of friends. "I walk with my grandpa, my grandma's husband, because he can walk as much as he wants to. He just keeps going and doesn't want to stop. My auntie and I walk and stop for a rest and then walk again." Desyrae raised $1,500 on her own for the relay, surpassing an initial goal of $500. "I brought a pledge sheet to school so my teachers helped. My mom and her friends also helped with pledges. My auntie and her boyfriend pledged me $100 and put it under the dog and cat's name." Desyrae checked the relay while she was in Grade 1 and then decided to take action this year. "People should try and raise money and be proud of it. Even if it is not a lot, they should be happy that it goes to finding a cure for cancer." She likes the fact more activities are planned within the event. "I liked the idea of a scavenger hunt. There is quite a bit more things to do this year compared to other years." For now she wants to continue to walk in hopes for a cure. In the future, she wants to help organize the event to ensure it stays strong. Some high school aged teams were also formed, which added more enthusiasm to the electricity of the event. For more information on helping next year, contact Shauna at or phone 780-679-7927.

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.

BRCF plays a major role in providing opportunities


By Dan Jensen

Bonita Anderson

"At Augustana we feel absolutely privileged to be the recipient of student awards funded through gifts to the Foundation," said Ms. Anderson at BRCF's open house June 1. The Foundation has also supported and strengthened Augustana program areas and campus priorities, and worked in partnership with Augustana to build community initiatives, like Reading University. Ms. Anderson described BRCF as a community at work – with a network of community leaders serving as a catalyst for attracting and inspiring others. Quoting Dr. Scott Peck, founder of the Foundation for Community Encouragement, she said it is the spirit of the community itself that leads, and not any single individual. "It's a together we can get things done kind of thinking." Ms. Anderson said like the department of development, a community foundation builds stronger communities by matching a donor's passion and resources with needs, and that much of a foundation's work is similar to that of a spider building its web.

Bjornson funds help hockey school players By Murray Green

The family of the late Conrad (Con) Bjornson and the Camrose Kodiaks are starting a Con Bjornson Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was launched by Connie Bjornson (Con's wife) along with the Kodiaks' hockey club in an effort to allow families in need of financial aid in Camrose and surrounding area, an opportunity to participate in the sport of hockey. "My husband loved hockey and helping youth," said Connie. "He volunteered with the Viking Cup and then with the Kodiaks because he liked the local teams and work with the public. One of his wishes was to help young hockey players participate in the sport and the scholarships will do just that." The Camrose Kodiaks' Summer Hockey School will be the designated program in which the scholarship funds will be utilized. Children who receive this scholarship will have their registration fees covered through this scholarship money. As a result, children of all ages and backgrounds will now have an opportunity to participate in hockey. "He enjoyed going to the Kodiaks' games and having a scholarship in his name will be one way to leave a legacy behind," said Connie. The Kodiaks' hockey club spokesman said they are very proud to support more than 20 children who will utilize the scholarship, and will have a chance to participate in the Kodiaks' Summer Hockey School, which will take place August 22 to 26. “The Kodiaks' Hockey School is set up to be a hockey school for the community of Camrose,” said Camrose Kodiaks' coach and general manager, Boris Rybalka. “Our focus has always been on giving kids from in town and in the surrounding area, a closeby location to receive top quality hockey instruction, from excellent hockey instructors. We are proud to receive the support from the Bjornson family, and look to continue to give back to the community through these initiatives.” The Camrose Kodiaks' office is still accepting registrations for both the Kodiaks' Summer Hockey School and the Next Wave Hockey Academy. To register, call 780-6792603, or visit the Kodiaks' office in the Edgeworth Centre in Camrose. Hockey school forms can also be downloaded from the Kodiaks' web site, . The Kodiaks' organization will review all applications to determine which players will qualify for the scholarship program. Conrad (Con) was a longstanding Kodiaks' volunteer from the franchise’s first year of existence in the 1997-98 season, to the time of his passing in early 2011. He served in a variety of roles for the organization, from goal judging, to security, to ticket taking. His years of outstanding service to the Kodiaks was respected greatly by his peers, and by the Kodiaks' fans and season ticket holders.

said the Open Door Association is ahead of its time when it comes to providing services to youth, and fits well with the government's safe communities initiatives. "Our government has invested in the last three years something like $500 million dollars on things like early intervention, taking a holistic approach to issues of crime and all the associated issues that go with it. I think there is a strong recognition that for people to feel safe in their communities they need to have good housing, they need to have strong educational assets, transportation, health care, child care, jobs." Olson added it is community organizations, who are on the front lines, that best know the needs of their community. "It is not the government's job to do things to communities or even for communities. It is up to the government to help communities with their initiatives, and this is a perfect example of a successful undertaking. I am very proud of what has been done here." Camrose City councillor Brandon Blatz commended the Open Door for the outstanding work it has done in the community. "Diverse and unique programs and assistance offered by this organization truly improves the lives of many people who may otherwise fall through the cracks by providing not just a hand out but a hand up," he said. "I think that is commendable." Mauer said the Open Door is not where it is today by accident. "I believe this organization has been blessed by God. We have had people who have come around us and supported us with prayer all through the years from prior to our even being thought of."

Gerd Lyseng

Josephine Gartner

Lydia Haselwood

Gerd Lyseng of Camrose passed away on Friday, June 17, 2011, at the age of 86 years. Gerd was born on August 16, 1924, in Breiskallen, Norway. Her parents immigrated with her in 1926 to a farm between Donalda and Meeting Creek. Gerd’s mother read daily from a Norwegian devotional and then knelt to pray with her children. Thus began Gerd’s strong faith. After completing Grade 12, she went on to further her education at Normal school becoming a teacher. Gerd took a teaching job in Camrose where she met the love of her life, Ivan Lyseng from Armena. Gerd believed strongly in the power of prayer. She had a gift that she could sense when someone in her family needed help. Many times she would call one of us and ask if a specific family member needed help because she just felt something was wrong. Amazingly, she was always right and we knew her prayers for us were heard. Gerd taught in Hay Lakes for 20 years. Teaching children to read was an accomplishment she was proud of. She worked hard all her life and always did the best she could for her children. She faced many challenges, including trying to teach Keith piano lessons, despite his lack of cooperation. She shared her love of her Norwegian heritage with us. We learned to love lefsa, flatbread and lutefisk. Gerd loved flowers, especially roses, and took great pleasure in tending to them while she still lived in her house. In her later years, she loved watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow, taking interest in all their activities. Her family was her life! After moving into Deer Meadows, she continued to enjoy her many wonderful friends and singing with the Golden Tones. She last sang with the Golden Tones on May 16, despite not feeling well at the time. She loved music and especially singing. Confident, strong, independent, loving: these are the attributes we will treasure forever in our memory of our dear Mom. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, June 21, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. from Scandia Lutheran Church, Armena, with Rev. Jim Appleby officiating. Interment followed in Scandia Lutheran Cemetery. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Scandia Lutheran Church. To send condolences, please visit

Josephine Gartner of Daysland passed away on Friday, June 17, 2011, at the age of 82 years. Josephine, daughter of Jacob and Amelia Blatz, was born close to Macklin, SK, on March 26, 1929. They lived around Macklin until 1940 when they moved to a farm five miles east of North Battleford, SK, which was close to the hamlet of Brada. In 1944, the family moved to a farm southwest of Daysland which they bought from Jack Mavor. At the age of 17, Josie worked at Daysland Hospital. From August 1950 until August 1951, she went to Sudbury, Ontario, to work with her sister Clara. She was married to Tony Gartner on June 22, 1953, and together they were blessed with nine children. She was a devoted wife and mother with a grateful, gentle and kind spirit. She was a CWL member for many years. Her faith in God was strong and her love for Mary our Blessed Mother in Heaven was inspiring to all who knew her. She died peacefully in Daysland Hospital on June 17, 2011, at the age of 82 years. Josephine leaves to mourn her loss two sons and five daughters, Rita (Berle) Radchenko, Gwen (Gord Bogstie), Gary, Mary K.

Lydia was born to William and Hilda Winter on December 24, 1928, at the family farm. She was the second oldest of seven siblings. Growing up on the farm, she did a lot of the hands-on work with crops, livestock, vegetable gardens, meal preparations and caring for younger siblings. Eventually she moved to Wetaskiwin, working in the kitchen at the Hospital, and met her husband-to-be, Tom, at an orchestra audition. They were married on April 15, 1955, at Peace Hills Lutheran Church. She was a loving housewife, devoted to raising three children, Judy, Sharon and Bill, while still tending to livestock, gardening, home cooking and preserving. Grandchildren followed and eventually two great-grandsons. Family get-togethers were an important time for her, and her house was always Grand Central Station, whether it was just her immediate family or extended family. After a brief battle with cancer, she passed away peacefully on June 19, 2011, with her husband by her side. She will be fondly remembered and sadly missed. Lydia was predeceased by her son William (Billy) in 1980, her youngest granddaughter Macala in 2004, her eldest sister, two younger brothers, one brother-inlaw and one sister-in-law. She is survived by her husband Tom; two daughters Judy and Sharon; four grandchildren Constance (Jonathan), Robyn, Juliet and Shelby; two great-grandchildren Noah and Nate; siblings Ruby (Ben) Pohl, Fred Winter and Anne (John) Dyer. Public Visitation was on Thursday, June 23, 2011, at Weber Funeral Home. A Memorial Service was held at 3:00 p.m., Friday, June 24, 2011, at Grace Lutheran Church. Interment took place at Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the charity of one’s choice. Condolences may be made at

Dustin P. Hoffman August 10, 1981 – June 29, 2001 Sunny days seem to hurt the most Wear the pain like a heavy coat I feel you everywhere I go I see your smile, I see your face I hear you laughing in the rain Still can’t believe you’re gone CHORUS

In loving memory of


It ain’t fair you died too young Like a story that had just begun The death tore the pages all away God knows how I miss you All the hell that I’ve been through Just knowing no one could take your place Sometimes I wonder who you’d be today Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams? Settle down with a family? I wonder, what would you name your babies? Some days the sky’s so blue I feel like I can talk to you And I know it might sound crazy
