Professor Dr. Varty and his fiancée Molly Daley are on a mission! Using their own money and with generous help from Massey-Ferguson/AGC0, Home Hardware Corporation and Kal Tire, this duo is travelling across Canada on a new Massey-Ferguson tractor, towing and living in the little “farm house” they hand-built. Professor Varty adamantly believes that the chronic loss of farmland to urban sprawl and development, low farm income levels, and the importing of substantial quantities of food from countries such as China, should be of greater concern to politicians and every citizen.

Volunteers from the Camrose Kodiaks, AHS Emergency Medical Services, Camrose Police Service and other community organizations served Blizzards as part of the 10th annual Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen July 26. The entire proceeds of every Blizzard sold on the day were donated to the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton. "Between the sale of Blizzards, the balloons we were making available and the coins we have been collecting throughout the year we were able to make a donation of $6,125 said Dairy Queen owner Lorraine McPhee. The Camrose Dairy Queen

has participated in Miracle Treat Day every year since its inception. In 2011 it sold 824 Blizzards and made a donation totalling just over $4,000. The number of Blizzards sold this year was 1,242. "We are proud and more than willing to help the Stollery in this way," said McPhee. Camrose Kodiaks assistant general manager Darcy Steen, who was serving Blizzards during the noon rush, said the Camrose Kodiaks are proud to be part of special events like the Miracle Treat Day. "Helping kids and helping community is what the Camrose Kodiaks' organization is all about," he said.

"We are happy to be able to lend a helping hand." Stollery Children's Hospital is one of 170 hospitals across North America that are part of the Children's Miracle Network. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network hospitals have raised over $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. Donations have been used to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care – actions that align with its mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. The total amount raised for the Stollery Children's Hospital by Dairy Queen owners/operators in 2011 was $450,000.

Camrose Big Valley Parade Thursday morning will kick off a busy weekend By Dan Jensen

If variety is the spice of life the 2012 Camrose Chamber of Commerce Big Valley Parade this Thursday should be downright hot. "We had 89 entries as of this morning (July 26) and are once again expecting over 100 total," said Chamber of Commerce parade entry coordinator Sheila DeJesus. The Camrose Big Valley Parade is the third largest in the province, after the parades in Calgary and Edmonton. Parade categories include antique, commercial, non commercial, visiting, novelty, community, horses, bands and mascots. "We have quite a few entries that are coming from out of town," said DeJesus. The parade will start at The Brick parking lot and travel south on main street until it reaches the United Church, where it will take a left hand turn. It will then proceed north

again on 48 Street eventually ending at 51 Avenue. A special viewing area will be set up at the United Church for seniors or those with disabilities. The parade will be led by Camrose and Area Adult Learning Council 2012 literacy award recipient Blain Fowler and children from the Reading University program at Augustana. Members of Camrose City council will be riding on the Mirror Lake Express, which won the trophy for best municipal entry in the Capital Ex parade July 22. Music entries will include the Clan MacNaughton band from St. Albert, the Prairie Region Pipes and Drums from Cochrane, the Impact Performance Arts Marching Band and Drum Corp from Edmonton. The parade will provide an opportunity for kids to see their favourite mascot. "We have nine mascots this

year, which is the most ever," said DeJesus. Pre-parade entertainment starting at 10:00 a.m. will be provided by members of the Camrose Spirals Rope Skipping Club. Shut-ins will be able to watch the proceedings live by tuning into Channel 10. Jackie Rae Greening will provide commentary. While the entry deadline was last week, DeJesus will be taking entries up to the last minute. The Camrose Chamber of Commerce is grateful for all the support it has received in planning the parade. "We have over 40 volunteers who are committed to working the parade but we could always use a few more," said DeJesus. Information on volunteering or submitting a late entry may be obtained by contacting the Camrose Chamber of Commerce office at 780-672-4217.

Council re-opens discussions on new City Hall By Dan Jensen

Stay with the current site or build on the footprint of the Mirror Lake Centre? That was a question with which Camrose city council wrestled July 23 in discussions on the proposed new City Hall. City of Camrose CAO Damian Herle told council the Mirror Lake Centre site has an advantage over the existing City Hall site in that it has more parking space available. He added the property on which the centre sits is owned by the City, so there would be no land acquisition costs. The advantage of building a new City Hall on the existing site is that the site is located within the downtown overlay and is already fully serviced with fibre optics, water and sewer. Herle said making room for a new City Hall on the banks of Mirror Lake would require the demolition of the Mirror Lake Centre, which has much wasted space on the main floor and has concerns with water leakage. Camrose and District Senior Society president Wilf MaertensPoole told council the Mirror Lake Centre building is old and has been repaired many times. "It was not designed for

Alberta and lots of leaks have occurred. The capability of the Mirror Lake Centre being able to last a number of years is questionable." The City Hall design that was prepared by Manasc Architects for the City of Camrose has 38,750 square feet on four levels, enough to accommodate staff growth over the next 30 years. Design features include a curved shape to represent the railroad, sloping roofs to represent the grain elevators, clear entrances, and public areas that would facilitate ease of movement from department to department. "Customer service enhancement would be a priority," said Vivian Manasc, of Manasc Isaac. "Community values would be enhanced by the service delivery." Manasc said the building as it is designed would incorporate energy efficiencies and be oriented on the lot to take advantage of light on the north side and shade from trees on the south. She noted too, that, while the design was meant for the current City Hall site, it could be adapted within two to three months to fit another site of council's choosing. "The quickest way to get

the City Hall completed is to proceed with the design that has been done already and do it on this site. If we proceeded today we could get the construction documents done in short order." Councillor Brandon Blatz reiterated the wish that the new City Hall be an inclusive community facility that would host civic functions and incorporate a library. He also expressed the need for City council to gather information about how much it would cost to operate a new City Hall and investigate how much the City could afford without putting too much pressure on the tax base. "I am not sure how we can build it completely with MSI funds because those come on a year to year basis." Councillor Daryl Shillington expressed confidence that the present City Hall location could work well for a new building and that the parking concerns could be addressed. Councillor Gerry Galenza said the cost of the new City Hall has escalated dramatically over the years from $4 million to the current estimate of $17.5 million without parking. "My question is how do we afford it. We are going to be

debenturing whatever location we pick. Maybe we are just going to have to bite the bullet." Galenza wasn't convinced the City needs to look at a different site for City Hall, especially one that is not in the downtown core. "We have spent money on a downtown revitalization plan. Pulling out leaves a huge gap and sends the wrong message to private people. I think we can do it on this (current City Hall) site and overcome the parking issue." The general consensus among all members of council was that the decision to put the new City Hall on either the current site or on the Mirror Lake Centre site would affect the Camrose Senior Centre Society. "If we go there and destroy the building where do we put those people," said Galenza. Maertens-Poole said while Canrose and District Senior Society could go elsewhere, its member clubs count heavily on the use of the Mirror Lake Centre's auditorium for functions that are held throughout the year. The hope of the society, he said, is that the City stay with the idea of building a City Hall at its current location and find ways to rejuvenate the facility on the lake.

"We are happy there but realize that something needs to be done soon." Of the current City Hall size of 15,000 square feet, 13,000 square feet is being utilized. The lower floor was closed off several years ago due to the presence of mold, forcing the engineering department to move to the lower level of the Mirror Lake Centre. The current space in the Mirror Lake Centre utilized by the engineering department (planning and development, building inspections, safety codes) is 8,072 square feet. "It is very important that the City staff and work units operate from the same facility," said Herle. Customer service would be enhanced and communications and workflow would be greatly enhanced by having these staff together – these are the types of efficiencies that have been lost over the last few years with the segregation and lack of interaction." Mayor Marshall Chalmers suggested council needs to have more meetings to discuss the location and size of the new City Hall before spending any more money on whether a design for the new City Hall can work at another location.

Reading University program competes fourth year By Dan Jensen

University of Alberta Augustana Campus dean Dr. Allen Berger presented certificates of achievement to forty-nine Grades 1 and 2 students at the commencement exercises of the fourth Reading University program July 27. Berger congratulated the students on a job well done. "I hope you have discovered that school work can be fun and that reading especially can be lots of fun. Dr. Berger said that, in reading, while curled up in a chair or outside under a tree, he has discovered he is never really all by himself. "In books I meet all kinds of interesting people – people from the past or from the future, people from places near and from places far away. Real people and totally imaginary people. People who think like me and people whose ideas and beliefs and experiences are very different from mine." Dr. Berger also said that, when he is in reading, he is never just in one place. "Reading takes me everywhere, literally all over the world, at least in my imagination. I'm also always learning new things – learning for example about dinosaurs, faraway planets and stars, about computers, about different religions, even about how to cook a fancy Italian or Greek meal." Dr. Berger told the students that by becoming better readers and by learning to enjoy reading, they are starting a journey in which they can dream any dream and eventually become anything they want to be. He expressed the hope that in ten or eleven or twelve years they

will come back to Augustana as a student to study for a university degree. "One thing I know for sure, you can do it. You have proven to all of us and I hope also to yourself that you are smart. You are talented. You belong at a place like Augustana." Offered by the Battle River Community Foundation, Battle River School Division and Augustana, Reading University is a four-week summer reading program intended to increase

the literacy skills of children in Grades 1 and 2 from schools in Camrose and Tofield who are not yet reading at grade level, so that they may succeed in school and beyond. The program's three stakeholders, along with their supporters, believe that in order to meet the challenges of the changing world, students need to be literate. They also know that literacy is more than reading, writing and basic sums – that it enables people to learn and comprehend, think critical-

ly, solve problems, share information and interact with others. "In the Battle River School Division we consider it our role to provide the programs and services each student requires in order to fulfill their potential," said Battle River School Division deputy superintendent Ray Bosh. "We truly believe in our vision, Every Student, Every Day A Success." Reading University's themes for 2012 were supported by games, skits, com-

puter research, and field trips. The program was designed to be interesting, engaging and fun – to help the students not only embrace their skills but also become more excited about learning. Teaching space was provided by Augustana in Camrose and at C.W. Sears School in Tofield. Bosh expressed appreciation to the BRSD teachers, educational assistants and bus drivers for their dedication and outstanding effort in making the Reading University program possible. "Your offer to work during the month of July is appreciated." Dr. Berger said Reading University is truly a special program, one where parents, generous community members, the Battle River School Division and the university all come together to make a lasting difference in the lives of young people. "To all of you who are family members of our students, Reading University staff, or program volunteers, I offer my heartfelt thanks. You clearly know how important literacy is as a foundation for lifelong learning, for career success, for personal satisfaction, and for building a meaningful life. And you clearly also know how essential it is to develop joyful, excited learners in the early elementary grades." Reading University was developed as a leadership initiative by the Battle River Community Foundation. "The process we use is, first, identifying need, and secondly, determining the best people and organizations to deal with the need," said BRCF board chair Blain Fowler. "Once that is done BRCF delivers the support."

Poor communication cancels fire bill By Murray Green

Zenon Goclon did everything he could to prevent a fire call to his property on May 14, but the Hay Lakes Fire Department responded anyway. Zenon was issued a fire permit by the fire chief and he even phoned the department to give them a date he would be burning. The ratepayer burnt about 10 small brush piles and watched them throughout the day. However, about 11:12 p.m. a 911 call was received and the Hay Lakes Fire Department sent a chief and six fire fighters to the scene. Zenon attended Camrose County council on July 24 with a request to cancel a $1,216 invoice for fire service that occurred on SE 25-48-22-4. The Hay Lakes Fire Department deployed hose lines from two trucks to cover all piles, extinguished, raked out and soaked all burning piles. The invoice was paid by Camrose County to the Village of Hay Lakes for fire services. In a letter to council, Zenon said he is very upset about the fire bill because he called the Hay Lakes Fire Department that day to let them know that he was going to burn. He burned about five piles at a time, so he could guard the fire and not let it get away. He left the brush piles at 10:15 p.m. with no flames burning, and there were

just hot charcoals. His son came home at 11 a.m. and nothing was burning. About 12 minutes later a call came into the fire department. "I can't understand why the call was made because there was no fire, just hot ashes," said Zenon. "By the morning the charcoals would have been dead and there was hardly any wind that night. I phoned the Hay Lakes department to tell them I was going to burn. I didn't get an answer. The fire was in no danger of getting out of control, so I don't know why they came out. After a rain, I burnt the rest of the piles." Reeve Don Gregorwich said that Zenon had a black ground strip around the piles, to avoid having the fire get away from him. "Zenon had the county clear brush from the road allowance just this past winter and he was collecting the roots and twigs that were left behind," added councillor Doug Lyseng, who issued the fire permit. "The piles were just little, smaller than a campfire. He has always been very careful." Councillor Doug moved to waive the fee. County administrator Steve Gerlitz pointed out the bylaw. "Camrose County, at its discretion, reserves the right to waive any fire response cost recovery charges for false alarms. This may include but is not limited to good Samaritans or passersby having seen smoke in

the distance, reporting fires to 911, or controlled fires being reported. However, this discretion will only be exercised as long as all required fire permits are in place and the fire is in compliance and there is no contravention to any fire bans that may be in force at the time." The fire call report said a 911 call came in at 23:12 p.m. by someone driving along RR220 and noticed piles in the west ditch on fire that were left unattended. The Hay Lakes Fire Department arrived on scene to multiple piles of hot embers smoldering in a ditch spreading over a quarter mile. A message was found on fire department phone regarding the burn. "What troubles me is that no one from the fire department ever got back to Mr. Goclon," said councillor Vern. "Someone just drives by and calls 911 without stopping to check it out. I have a problem with that. I think it's about time, because we have so much of this happening, that these people should start paying the bill. They are the ones who called the fire department, so they should pay for it." "We don't want to discourage people from using 911, but it only takes a few seconds to check out the call before responding, because he had a permit," said councillor Trevor Miller.

Seniors' Chat Cruise Ship or Nursing Home Book review by Ella Thompson

Be mobile in style Performance and features second to none. LOOK!

New Location! #7, 5000-51 Ave., Camrose between Liquidation World and The Brick



This book was co-authored by Dr. Ben Learner, Dr. Greg Loman, Dr. Charles Majors, Dr. Chris Pellow and Dr. Eric Shuemake, who developed the program of Maximized Living by combining over fifty years of clinical experience. What they teach has been tried and proven to be successful in their offices and at home with their families, because they have helped thousands of people with different medical conditions and ailments. Chapter one begins with the most important health question you will ever answer: where do you want to spend retirement? On a cruise ship, staring at the sun setting over the ocean, or stuck in a nursing home staring at a bucket of pills? No one intends to end up in the nursing home, but your intentions don't determine where you will end up,

your actions do. This program is meant to change your actions. The path that most people around us are on is the path to the nursing home, but many people have taken the steps toward the cruise ship by taking the simple steps in this book. The Five Essentials for good health are based on the fact that our bodies are incredible selfhealing machines when there is no interference. If you remove the cause of the problem, your body will heal. There is only one way to well-being. It is not through treatment of the symptoms, but through taking care of yourself. Taking care of yourself equals removing components of your lifestyle that are out of alignment with how your body was designed to work. Caring for the body by removing interference and ultimately living a life that creates little interference in the first place, is real health care. Like the law of gravity, this is the law that leads to longterm well-being. As you take the

five steps away from the nursing home and towards the cruise ship, you will be applying the Five Essentials of Maximized Living. There are hundreds of books about health and fitness that don't work. These self-help books should be called "shelf-help" books, because after you read the book it is placed on the shelf. They may tell you "how to" but if you don't actually do it, there is no help. Only action changes people, head knowledge does not. Lasting change is 80 per cent behaviour and 20 per cent education. This book can help you develop healthy habits and change your behaviour forever. We can be amazing role models for our families, who ultimately follow our actions and not our words. Our grandchildren and greatgrandchildren will be indebted to our efforts, because they can party with us on a cruise ship instead of visiting us in a nursing home.

Long-term care facilities bringing back home cooking Albertans living in long-term care facilities operated by Alberta Health Services will soon enjoy fresher food that better meets their dietary needs and preferences. Health Minister Fred Horne is directing Alberta Health Services (AHS) to discontinue the practice of preparing meals offsite and reheating, and bring back on-site food preparation services in the long-term care facilities it operates. The changes will be in effect by December 2012. “We’ve heard what residents and their families have said about

the quality of food in our longterm care facilities and today, we are taking action to improve that,” said Horne. “We have to remember that these facilities are home to the people who live there, and in many cases, the last home they will ever live in. They deserve to live in comfort and dignity and enjoy food that is not only nutritious, but looks and tastes home-cooked and satisfies cultural food preferences.” AHS will be required to prepare meals within their facilities that improve the taste and

appearance over the food currently served, while at the same time design meals that better reflect flexibility and choice for residents. AHS will consult with residents, families and staff to develop and present a plan of action to Horne by October, with full implementation of on-site and locally based meal preparation by December. The directive applies to all 73 longterm care facilities operated by AHS across the province. These facilities are home to approximately 2,700 residents.

More and more seniors have an active lifestyle and exercise regularly. This choice is not, of course, without risk; falls and injuries can occur. Do you know what recourse you have if an accident happens? Sure enough, in certain circumstances you do have a right to compensation. Of course, it should be made clear that falls and injuries are not the monopoly of seniors. In fact, they occur frequently in all age groups. Generally speaking, when the victim is aware of a risk and participates in the activity anyway, they must accept the consequences. This, of course, limits any possible recourse. In all circumstances, the owner of the site must maintain the infrastructure and the equipment in good condition. If an accident happens, it’s the responsibility of the victim to prove that his injuries are the direct consequence of a fault committed by the third party.

Hey Romeo band plans working cruise By Murray Green

Canadian Country Music Association award winning band Hey Romeo will be performing on a floating stage next winter. Lead singer Stacie Roper, formerly of Hay Lakes, is excited to be on a working cruise. "When the idea was first introduced to us our reaction was why not," said Stacie. "It gives us an opportunity to have some fun and I'm very excited to be a part of a cruise. It is a wonderful way to get close to our fans." Stacie admitted that the band is busy, so having an opportunity to go on a cruise with friends and family on a get-away was well received. "Sometimes when you do have time off to go home, you are swept up by the family demands," said Stacie. "This is a unique opportunity to play and visit with fans. Our fans are very important to us." The Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) said that the Alberta-based trio Hey Romeo has been nominated for three CCMA Awards including Group or Duo of the Year, Fans’ Choice Award and Interactive Artist of the Year. In 2011, Hey Romeo claimed the award for Group of the Year. "It was a life and career changing moment for the band. It was the best moment of my life," added Stacie. The AllStar Band Award for Keyboard Player of the Year went to Hey Romeo keyboardist Rob Shapiro, an award he has won the last three years. “We were in awe at being nominated for three major CCMA awards,” said Stacie. “To be nominated for the Fans' Choice Award is like a dream come true. It means the world to us because it is the fans that support us and to have them vote for us is the ultimate pay back.” The Fans’ Choice Award voting can be done today at www.ccma. org and closes Friday, September 7. The winner will be announced at the CCMA Awards, which will be broadcast live from the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on Sunday, September 9. Hey Romeo will also be performing at the CCMA FanFest on Saturday, September 8, at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon. "It is hard to talk about next winter when it is so nice out in the summer, but we hope people will seriously think about joining us," said Stacie. "This is a great way for us to get to know everyone better. When we can share our success with our fans, it makes it all worthwhile. It's an honour and a thank you at the same time." Hey Romeo released its third studio album, Twist of Fate (Royalty Records), on June 26. The record was co-produced by Hey Romeo and Byron Hill (Gary Allan, Gord Bamford) and features 12 songs including the first single, “Jump Back In.” The band hosted the first annual Alberta Country Music Awards at Westerner Park in Red Deer. The band has opened for huge country acts including Sugarland, Johnny Reid and Gord Bamford to make a name for itself within the Canadian country music industry. In 2010, Hey Romeo’s sophomore album, That’s What I Am, sparked five hit singles including “Searchin’ For You,” which went Top 20 on both the Mediabase and BDS charts, and “That’s What I Am,” which peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Canada Emerging Artist chart. A year after the release of its debut album, the band took home a 2008 CCMA Award for Top New Group of the Year. Hey Romeo has grown from a hard-touring regional success to a national sensation while earning a reputation, not only as one of Canada’s hardest working country acts, but as one of the hardest working bands in the country, period. "We made our choice to stay Canadian because music fans in Canada are the most important thing to us. We could have moved to the United States, but then you lose that identity with Canadians," said Stacie. Continued on page 14

Local iron men challenge the best in the world By Murray Green

Chiropractor Tom Smith and Camrose Dynamic Sales manager Evan Smelquist decided over a year ago to enter the Ironman Canada competition in Penticton, B.C., on August 26. The triathletes have been biking, swimming and running hard ever since they made the decision to prepare for the long one-day event. "We have weekly training in all three components. The challenge in the winter is to stay active on the bikes," said Tom. "We do strength training to maintain our endurance training. Most cyclists first start training outdoors in March when the ice or snow comes off the roads." Training is a huge commitment. "We started with eight to 10 hours a week and are now up to over 20 hours weekly. It's like having another part-time job," said Evan. "About 50 per cent of that is on the bikes." Tom, a former world professional wind surfer, and Evan, a veteran competitor in the half triathlons, have been motivating each other to gear up for the big event. "We have entered half triathlons before to train for this event," said Tom. "This is the first delve into the long course." Entering an ironman competition was on Evan's bucket list. "This is biggest event in Canada and it was the one I wanted to enter. You can't just decide in June that you want to race in this event. It takes over a year of hard training to prepare for it. In fact, I think the day after the race is the deadline to enter for next year." Tom said "Canada is consistently in the top five worldwide as far as hosting the event, so people from all over the world enter this race. It is a challenging and attractive course." "It is a single loop course, so you don't have to go around on the same path," said Evan. "That makes it attractive to a lot of athletes." Tom explained his reasoning for entering the ironman event. "It was a momentary lapse of sanity. Ironman is the pinnacle event for triathlon athletes. Even former Olympic athletes go back and start training for half triathlons and then the ironman competitions because it is the

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Tom Smith and Evan Smelquist are training up to 22 hours a week for the Ironman Canada competition in Penticton, B.C., on August 26.

most difficult endurance test that exists. Our goal is simple. We want to complete the course. Having said that, many things could go wrong, such as bike breakdowns or injuries." A mass start for the swim can be dangerous. "You have everyone going at once and it is a sea of arms and elbows and it's not uncommon to have broken noses, separated shoulders or getting kicked in the face. A lot of injuries happen in the first five minutes," said Evan. Once the athletes jump on their bikes, the athletes have a little more distance between them. The Subaru Ironman Canada event in Penticton is the oldest Ironman race held in North America. This is the 30th anniversary year and is regarded as one of the best Ironman events due to its classic course and history. About 3,200 athletes have entered the competition, which is

one of the toughest in the world. Each participant who finishes will have swum 3.8 kilometres (2.4 miles), biked 180 kilometres (112 miles) and run 42.2 kilometres (26.2 miles). Athletes have 17 hours to complete the event (from the 7 a.m. start until midnight). "The run is the hardest part for me," stated Tom. "I'm not the fastest guy in the water, but certainly not the slowest. When I get to the bike, that is my strongest comfort zone. I was never a strong runner and it is the one I work at the hardest." The athletes train arduously on the bike all year, so they feel good about the middle event. "For me swimming is the toughest. Swimming lap after lap hasn't been as appealing for me, but I have learned to focus and get better at it." Both ironman athletes said it is a team effort, even though they compete as individuals. "It has been so much easier to train

with someone because you have company and you can exchange ideas and thoughts with each other. Mentally, it would be very difficult to train by yourself," said Evan. "We both have young children and families. Without everyone making a sacrifice, we couldn't do this," added Tom. "When you work all day and train in the evenings, a lot of other things just don't get done. Our wives and children have been wonderful, but they are starting to realize this will soon come to an end." Both local athletes said they would take a couple years off before they would even consider entering a competition like ironman again. "It's just too time consuming. If we did this every year then we soon wouldn't have to worry about jobs or family, because we wouldn't have any," said Tom. "We owe a lot to our families for letting us do this. Not just our

family, but the extended families for helping out," added Evan. Ironman triathlon was started by a group of Navy Seals who were stationed in Hawaii. They were discussing who were the fittest athletes in the world. Were swimmers, cyclists or runners the fittest? Navy commander John Collins decided there was only one way to find out, and that was to combine all three. On Feb. 18, 1978, 15 competitors decided to put themselves to the test by entering the event. "Whoever finishes first will be called the Ironman," Commander John said. And thus, Ironman Triathlon was born. Since those humble beginnings, the sport of Ironman has developed into an international phenomenon. With numerous full-distance races worldwide, more than 25,000 athletes are expected to compete in Ironman events in 2012.

Habitat Camrose lining up new funding proposal By Dan Jensen

Habitat for Humanity Camrose is putting together a new proposal for funding that is being made available by the City of Camrose for affordable housing projects.. "We are in the number crunching phase right now and it seems to be coming together," said Habitat Camrose executive director Cody McCarroll. "It's an exciting proposal from our perspective and we hope it will be successful." The City of Camrose has $1.7 million in residual funding from the $7,887,298 it received in 2008 under the province's Affordable Housing Program for the construction of the Jamieson Manor project at the site of the former

Wildrose Arena. Requests for proposals for funding must be submitted to the City of Camrose by Friday, Aug. 24. Habitat for Humanity received word last month that it had been awarded a grant of $25,000 under Habitat for Humanity Canada's 360 Built Smart Partnership. Funded by Home Depot Canada Foundation and Holcim (Canada Inc.), it will help to foster strong community partnerships, as well as attract and retain public and private partners. "We are going to be using the money to improve our website and do some better advertising," said McCarroll. "We want to work with the City of Camrose, as well as some private home builders to respond

to an increased demand for our homes in Camrose." Habitat for Humanity Camrose received a grant of $5,000 from the 360 Built Smart Partnership program in 2011 to maintain high workplace safety standards. "We were able to invest in some first aid training for volunteers at the build site as well as here at the ReStore, as well as purchase hard hats, gloves and all kinds of other personal protective equipment," said McCarroll. "I also set up online training for the people here at the ReStore." Habitat for Humanity Canada president and CEO Stewart Hardacre said the grants show not only how The Home Depot Canada Foundation and Homcim Canada are

directly fuelling innovative housing projects, but also how important volunteers are to the Habitat organization. "The 360 Built Smart Partnership helps us strengthen communities by building more homes." The Habitat for Humanity Camrose draft strategic plan calls for the construction, through a variety of means, of 18 homes in the community over the next five years. The plan lines up with Habitat for Humanity Canada's goal of building as many homes in the next five years as it has in its history. "With the four homes we are building this year (400975 Street) we are well on our way to getting to where we want to be," said McCarroll.

Habitat for Humanity Camrose built 18 homes between 1996 and 2011. Habitat for Humanity Camrose will be auctioning birdhouses decorated by local businesses and community groups at its fall fundraising banquet scheduled to be held at the Norsemen Inn September 2. "Community support is needed now more than ever since applicants for Habitat homes are increasing and we are striving to meet the growing need," said Habitat Camrose president Mark Schneider. Habitat homes are built with, not for, the families who purchase them. Selected families pay for their homes with no-interest mortgages.

Professor Dr. John Varty (Yale and McGill Universities) and New York City girl (fiancé Molly Daley) will be at Hauser Home Hardware on Friday, August 3. Their trip goes from PEI to Victoria, BC, using a brand new Massey Ferguson 1660 tractor which pulls their “little farm house on wheels.” (Their living quarters for the year-long trip.) Their goal is to talk to farmers, politicians and farm-market operators in producing a documentary film about the severe challenges of farming and food production in Canada. They are raising awareness of chronic loss of farm land to urban sprawl and development and historically low farm income levels. They are also addressing the fact that Canadians often eat food products imported from countries with environmentally unsound practices.

"We want to stay Canadian and play in Europe or other countries on tours. We played in France and our song was at the top of the charts. It was cool to see our song at number one when Alan Jackson was at number five. It was because we toured there and made a connection with the fans." The band's tight harmonies, the signature interplay between Rob Shapiro’s keyboards, Darren Gusnowsky’s guitar and Stacie’s powerhouse vocals, Twist of Fate is a relentlessly energetic blend of modern and traditional country, vintage folk and rock and roll that fans will find themselves singing along to halfway through the first chorus of the first track. Stacie sings from the heart and shoots from the hip, knows exactly what sounds and artists have been an inspiration to her over the years. “I love the harmonies of the Statler Brothers, the feel of The Mavericks, the voice of Alison Krauss, and the strength of Martina McBride,” said Stacie who has

also taken a few cues from '80s ladies like Cyndi Lauper and Debbie Harry, at least when it comes to connecting with an audience. Stacie’s gift for injecting the spirit of country music was apparent not long after she first started performing in front of audiences

as a young singer. At a talent contest where she chose to sing a number from a Broadway musical, she turned heads for a number of reasons. Not only did she get everyone’s attention thanks to a impressive reading of the tune, Stacie still laughs when she recalls that one of

the judges figured she had injected “a little too much country twang” into the number. Hey Romeo performs three concerts on the Western Caribbean cruise, which starts on Sunday, February 17, 2013.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER July 31, 2012

Tractor Project rolling into Camrose this week By Dan Jensen

John Varty is doing his part to support Canadian farmers. The Ontario university professor and his fiancee, Molly Daley, have been travelling across Canada in their Massey Ferguson 1660 tractor – a little farm house in tow – to draw attention to the serious issues of farming and food production. Varty has particular concerns with the chronic loss of farmland to urban sprawl and development, and historically low farm income levels. He is still trying to wrap his head around the absurdity of Canada importing food from the world's most populous nation, China, and feels that the countless issues around labelling and environmental compliance put Canadian farmers at a disadvantage. "When we buy Chinese carrots," he notes, "we're also buying a retrograde step back to some environmentally unsafe practices that we thought we had left behind." Varty believes Canadian farmers deserve a sustained voice and that their important contribution to Canadian Society should be part of our daily conversations. "It's a bad, even dangerous state of affairs for any society when the people who work most closely with the soil, producing food, have so relatively little cultural and political clout. For this to change we need Canadians to regard all farming issues as their own to some extent, and consider voting in accordance with sound agricultural policy whenever possible. In turn, for all this to happen we need real farmers telling real stories. Stories that will engender a kind of sympathy that goes beyond lip service and extends to real consideration and action on the most pressing issues." Varty and Daley are producing a documentary of their trip using comments they have heard from farmers, politicians and farm market operations. They have already compiled about 140 hours of footage and know that the biggest problem will be to "shoehorn it into a two-hour program without losing the message." Varty and Daley's trek, known as the Tractor Project,

The Tractor Project will be arriving at Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre, Camrose, this Friday, August 3. Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre has planned a celebration featuring a welcoming ceremony at 11:00, as well as a charity barbecue, display of Massey Ferguson equipment, prize giveaways and, for the kids, a petting zoo, bounce tent and face painting. John Varty, who began the Tractor Project, will be speaking periodically through the day. The goal of the celebration is to promote agriculture in the Camrose trading area.

started last year at a tractor dealership in Charlottetown, and will end when it reaches the Pacific Ocean sometime this September. Since leaving Kitchener-Waterloo in June of this year they have been to the east side of Georgian Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon. Whenever possible they plan media events for their documentary at Home Hardware stores, where they speak with home owners and farming customers. With more than 1,070 stores in communities across Canada and an extensive range of agricultural products, buildings and farm supplies, it was a natural fit for Home to become the Tractor Project's home-on-theroad improvement partner. The Tractor Project has also received support from AGCO Corp., which supplied the tractor, and Kal-Tire, which has assisted with some of the 22 flat tires that have slowed travels. "When half of your rubber is on the gravel shoulder all the time it is to be expected that you would pick up nails, glass and all sorts of things," said Varty. "We're well equipped with a jack, plugs, tools and a compressor, so we can fix our own flats, thankfully." When asked about memorable moments, both Varty and Daley say there are too many to count. "We've met so many fantastic people along the way, it will be like a reunion when we get around to editing our video."

Alberta Transportation forces highway entrance changes within county By Murray Green Alberta Transportation is citing safety issues as the main concern in forcing some county residents to move property access off of main highways. "Each access creates potential conflict points between vehicles travelling at highway speeds and slower moving vehicles that may be entering, leaving or crossing a highway," said Andy Charchun, from the Vermilion office of Alberta Transportation. "In most cases the new entrance will be finished before the old one is removed and it will be at our cost. We strive for one per quarter or less." Accesses will be moved or closed. "We want the number of accesses reduced. We have had a number of cases where rollovers have occurred," added Andy. "In Alberta, six to 10 per cent of collisions and fatalities on rural provincial highways are a result of striking accesses." Access relocations are currently being reviewed on secondary highways 617 and 834 and construction will begin shortly. New land entrances will be established on range roads that are off of the highways. Camrose County has no jurisdiction on provincial rights of way, but council voiced its displeasure at the way Alberta Transportation has been forcing the issue with some landowners. "To what extent was the Camrose County involved in consultation as far as planning to put approaches on county roads?" asked councillor Vern Peterson. "As far as I know, we didn't consult the Camrose County," said Andy. "In some jurisdictions we started to do that, but it was a common sense approach that this was the right thing to do. We didn't need to consult or apply for a permit as such. No, we did not consult the county." "Alberta Transportation should get written approval from all affected landowners whose existing highway access is going to be eliminated and relocated because of pending highway surfacing," said county administrator Steven Gerlitz. "Alberta Transportation is responsible for all costs associated with relocating the existing highway approaches to local county roads." The county received an email on July 10 from Tim Guenther, field support technologist

at Alberta Transportation, central region, Vermilion district regarding provincial highway access approaches. "Alberta Transportation has a pavement rehabilitation project underway for Highway’s 617 and 834. As a component of the project Alberta Transportation reviews the safety and functionality of the highways. The department endeavors to limit highway accesses by consolidation or by relocating the accesses from the highways to the local road networks where possible," said Tim. "Our review has indicated that an adjustment to the accesses along the aforementioned highways is warranted. I trust that an expeditious review will be forthcoming and that there will be no issues with the proposed work. It would be appreciated if the County of Camrose would review this matter before council and respond to the department as soon as possible." Some of the landowners are in Vern's division. "It would be my observation, Mr. chairman, that I would find it interesting that the Alberta government would consult with the people by advising them that they are moving them (accesses) whether they want to or not," said Vern. "That is what I heard from people along the road. They were told that this is going to happen and this is the way it is and that was the consultation." No choice

Landowners were told that they don't have a choice. "The provincial government have moved in a way that they think they can treat the people who elected them to that extent. I think it's wrong. I would have appreciated that Camrose County would have been involved in the initial consultation, so me as a representative of those ratepayers, wouldn't have heard second hand that the consultations didn't go so good," said councillor Vern. " They were told what would happen and were disgusted at the way it happened. I agree with safety, but consultation means going face to face with people and consult on what we are going to do. It's not telling good, honest, hard working people what they are going to do. I take exception to that. I think it has to stop." Reeve Don Gregorwich added his views. "I talked with someone who went through the

Camrose’s most valuable information resource experience with Alberta Transportation about access relocations," said Don. "I can have him come forward at any time to say what discourtesy and arrogance he received from Alberta Transportation. In the end, the transportation representative's superior came out and the situation was resolved. However, I'm going to say this to you as Alberta Transportation representatives: if there are any residents in our county who are treated with arrogance and discourtesy, we will stop talking to the people in front of us and head

straight to the minister and say this is unacceptable. Our people deserve to be treated properly and with respect. There is a right way and a proper way. If that is not followed, you haven't heard the last of us," said Reeve Don. "I respect what you are doing, but please keep it professional with that message in mind. We won't accept arrogance directed to our residents or staff." Andy said he agreed with the courteous approach. "We've tried that, but sometimes it is hard to take something away without being a little bit forceful,

in Tim's defence. I'm sorry that happened, but sometimes they just don't see that moving the approach from there to there is a better option," explained Andy. "We had one incident where the landowner went to the minister, in former Premier Ed Stelmach's riding, and the minister backed us up 100 per cent." Reeve Don said "The letter sounds like it (access changes) has already been decided and here is what we are going to do. It sounds arrogant."

Preserve that freshness Did you know that for most vegetables, with the exception of lettuce, washing them without eating them immediately greatly reduces their life expectancy? Also, the leaves of certain root vegetables, such as carrots, radishes and beetroots are useless and can even be harmful to store in a refrigerator. Doing so actually dehydrates the vegetable. Therefore, it is recommended to dispose of any leaves in order to safeguard a vegetable’s freshness and optimize its preservation. To take full advantage of the nutritional properties that vegetables contain, using cooking methods such as steaming and micro-waving ensures that they lose very little of their nutritional value.

Berries the star of the show in many kitchens Berries are such a goldmine for flavour. Whose mouth wouldn’t water at the thought of wild berries dipped in chocolate, berry sorbets, upside-down cakes, and bowls of berries and cream. Good thing it’s summertime.

Stay young by eating asparagus The one vegetable we should make an effort to eat more often is asparagus. These green spears contain so many antioxidants that they are considered to be the ultimate in anti-ageing vegetables. Rich in vitamins and minerals, asparagus helps to regenerate skin cells and combat loss of skin elasticity. Apart from such anti-ageing properties, asparagus also improves digestion because of its high fibre content, which aids in the passage of food through the intestines. Its high potassium content and lack of sodium also help asparagus with the elimination of toxins in the body. It is an ideal vegetable for those of us on a diet, as it is made up of 92 per cent water and one cup contains only 45 calories. Only the tender part of the asparagus is edible. When preparing this vegetable, simply hold a spear with one hand at each end and bend it. The spear will break off where the tough, woody end starts.

Berries are the stars of the show in many kitchens, especially during July and August. Everyday cooks are magically transformed into gourmet chefs, skilfully turning local produce into mouthwatering delights

for their guests or concocting sinfully delicious treats just for themselves. Even though recipes are as numerous as they are varied, you could still search the many gourmet Internet sites in order

to find ideas that will make your taste buds explode with pleasure. Another great source for deliciously original recipes is popular cooking magazines or, if you really want to spoil yourself, a magnificent recipe

book with photos on every page. To make your mouth really water, browse the pastry counter at your local bakery, where glazed berry tarts and pies will inspire you to get out your wallet and splurge!

How many of us, when we are shopping downtown, or even just enjoying a stroll or some music, take time to wonder how Camrose can be so blessed as to have a city center that radiates such beauty and charm? The flower boxes are looking particularly beautiful this year; you can tell that care has been taken in planting to choose a harmonizing

blending of colours in each box – each one different, each one lovely. When I enquired how this all happens, I found that the plants are paid for by the merchants and other business people of Camrose City Center. They are planted and cared for by volunteers from this group, which also pays for watering by the City of Camrose. The city center is further beautified by the lovely pots and planters of flowers placed on their premises by many indi-

vidual businesses located both on Main Street and on other streets adjacent to it. A huge bouquet of thanks to all these good people for providing Camrosians, visitors and tourists with such a vibrant city center and a very special “thank you” to Paul Pedersen and others, whose careful weeding keeps our flowers looking their best all summer long. We owe so much to our volunteers! Frances M. Elliott, Camrose

Scholarship recipient PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Find delight in the simple things! This week the world witnessed, via television, internet and/or actual presence, another spectacular extravaganza that was the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London, England. To maintain national pride, it seems essential to each Olympic host city to present a show that is among the biggest and most dazzling ever – if possible to excel over any previous Olympic event. In London, preparations have taken a number of years and the cost is estimated to be up to $20 billion of public funds – less offset benefits from increased economic activity and a legacy of local revitalization projects. On July 4, there was an even bigger story, one that was cited as the most exiting news event ever, even bigger than the landing of a man on the moon in July 1969. It was the discovery of the Higgs boson particle, also known as the “God particle,” which, according to scientists, “changes everything” because it helps us unveil the mysteries of the universe. Scientists have been searching for it for half a century; the world’s largest particle accelerator which facilitated the discovery cost $10 billion. It was, indeed, a momentous and costly scientific event. That’s all I am going to say about the above two major items of world news because details and commentary on the Olympic Games are amply available in other media, and the Higgs boson particle discovery is far beyond my comprehension and therefore does not justify any attempt to discuss it – except to make note of this: Peter Higgs, the physicist who proposed the particle almost fifty years ago and whom some are presently recommending for a Nobel Prize, is now 83 years old. The point I make is that not everyone’s ability to serve ends at an arbitrarily determined age and therefore, in my opinion, mandatory retirement at sixty-five or any age is wrong. While big events excite us, and we are mesmerized by amazing technology, a wall hanging on a door where I live shifted my thoughts from big, dazzling and momentous events to the small and ordinary around us. The words on the attractive hanging were: Find delight in the simple things! There are many, many delights that cost nothing and bring joy. For example my friend A inquired about my friend B, saying that B was a very fine person; I passed the compliment on to B who was obviously pleased and reciprocated saying that A was a very fine person. I relayed that compliment back to A and it brought pleasure and a smile to his face, too. A kind word reverberates like an echo. A walk in the park is joyful if one is doing it with open eyes, ears and mind to see nature’s wonders. Beauty and pleasure are found in unexpected places. To me, a dandelion was just a nuisance weed until I really looked at one; I then marvelled at the dozens of tiny yellow petals that make up its colorful bloom and later at its fuzzy, round white head of countless, fragile seeds that would become windborne and a menace in our next year’s green spaces. Similarly, a rose, tame or wild, is a thing of beauty even though it has thorns. I saw a wonder of the world when my mother lifted me to peer into a robin’s nest and see several blue eggs, and again later when the eggs were cracked from the inside by an emerging baby robin – a rather ugly combination of skin and bone which would later become a beautiful red and black feathered bird filling mornings and evenings with tuneful song. There is fascination in watching ants work, and learning how quickly they are able to re-organize if one interrupts their assembly line. May we, at an early age, learn to open our eyes and actually see the beauty in the scenery and the people around us. May we always find delight in the simple things!

Dorothy May Carlson Dorothy was born on May 11, 1933 in the rural Peace River country and passed away on July 25, 2012. In 1951, she married Gustaf Carlson of Wetaskiwin, Alberta. The couple resided in the Wetaskiwin district until 1972 when Dorothy moved to Camrose, Alberta where she worked as a nurse’s aide at Rosehaven Auxiliary Hospital until her retirement. Dorothy enjoyed many hours in her garden, but her biggest joys were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dorothy’s baking will be missed by all. Dorothy is lovingly remembered by her daughter-in-law Brenda (Erin, Tabitha, and Rebecca); son Douglas; son David – Geraldene (Crystal, Joseph); daughter Pat – Reg; son Allan – Myra (Dale, Garett); daughter Charmaine – Wayne (Tara, Craig); daughter Cynthia – Guy (Thomas, Meagan); daughter Joy (Chad, Dillan); son Robert – Kerry. Dorothy is also survived by eight great-grandchildren. Dorothy is predeceased by her husband Gustaf, son Arne and son-in-law Neil. Your comfort and support are greatly appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. A funeral service was held on Monday, July 30, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. from Burgar Memorial Chapel with Pastor Shannon Payne officiating. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to The Heart & Stoke Foundation. To send condolences please visit

Leash up and latch on As we are well into the warm summer, more Camrosians are enjoying the great outdoors with their families, friends, and of course – their pets and recreational vehicles. Leash up!

Visiting and resident pet owners in the City of Camrose are reminded that all dogs and cats should be on leashes whenever off of private property. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times while enjoying parks, walkways, berms, lakes, and public places. Fortunately, the City maintains a widespread trail system throughout Camrose for all residents and leashed pets to enjoy. For everyone’s enjoyment, please clean up after your dog and keep your dog on a leash while using these facilities. Dog bag dispensers are available throughout the trail system for your convenience. The City of Camrose also maintains a 4.5 acre off-leash dog park available to residents 24 hours a day. The park includes amenities such as benches, dog bag dispensers, and garbage disposals. The park is located west of 68 Street and north of 48 Avenue. Parking is available behind Staples. Latch on!

Owners of both holiday and utility trailers are reminded to latch up their trailers at all times. Unattached trailers can be difficult to move in an emergency and can obstruct the view of traffic, making visibility difficult. Young children running out from behind a trailer are very difficult to see, and could be struck by oncoming traffic. For both your safety and the safety of others, the Camrose Traffic Bylaw #2691/12 states that unattached trailers are not to be left on city streets for any period of time. Unattached trailers are at greater risk for theft and may not be completely covered by your insurance when left on public property, including urban streets. A collision with your trailer may not be covered by your insurance company if unattached at the time of the accident. For your own safety and for the safety of others it is best to only have your trailer on the streets when attached to a vehicle. Please help us make Camrose an enjoyable and safe place for all by simply leashing up your dog and latching on your trailer. For information regarding unattached trailers or off-leash concerns, please contact the Bylaw Enforcement Department at 780-672-4426.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER July 31, 2012



Wilhelmina “Mina” Schieck Mina was born on February 19, 1919 to Konrad and Marie Reimchen in Greul, Germany. She was the baby of the large German family forced to leave their home in the Russian Caucasus and eventually emigrate to Wetaskiwin. Mina was six years old when she arrived in Canada. She remembered a painful adjustment to the new culture and language. Her large close-knit family was a source of comfort and support to her, and she felt very proud of them throughout her life. She was a good student and at the top of her eighth grade class when she left school to help her mother who was not well. She admired her mother’s many strengths and was very close to her. Mina became a beautiful woman with a lovely singing voice, sociable personality and strong religious faith. Mina married Philip Reuel Wagar at 19 years of age and they had a daughter, Jacqueline. She was widowed at 22 and lost her beloved mother at 23. To support herself, she worked in a Wetaskiwin department store and, with the help of her family, renovated a large old house into several apartments. She married Gordon Alfred Schieck when she was 26 and they had a daughter, Elaina. Gordon was an ordained minister in the Church of God. His work took them to a number of places in Canada, United States and India. For the next 25 years, Mina used her many talents to help wherever she found herself. She took every opportunity to further her education and learn new skills. The time that she spent in India made a deep impression on her and she retained an emotional connection with the people there for the rest of her life. After returning from India, she started importing Indian handicrafts for her friends, and this developed into a new career for her. She often laughed that she started her new business at the age of 50 during a time of economic recession. Camrose didn’t have any gift shops or bridal registries, and her business grew with the needs of her customers. Mina was involved with many projects at the Alberta Bible Institute, Camrose Church of God, and Sahakarini. Mina took great pride in her three grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Left to cherish her memory are her two daughters Jacqueline (Walter) Pringle of Camrose and Elaina Firestone of Calgary; three grandchildren Greg (Lori) Pringle, Jamai Moltzahn and Maxwell Moltzahn; three great-grandchildren Jordan Moltzahn, Connor Pringle and Quinn Pringle; and numerous relatives and friends. Mina was predeceased by her husband Gordon, seven brothers and three sisters. A funeral service was held on Wednesday July 25, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. from Camrose Church of God with Pastor Brian Krushel officiating. Interment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Sahakarini or to the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences please visit

Mildred Eileen Haugen


Mildred was born on January 23, 1921 to Martin and Helena Nelson, and passed away on July 24, 2012 at the age of 91 years. On November 28, 1939, she married Carl Haugen. They had two daughters – Lorna, then three years later, Sandra, who passed away in infancy with unknown causes. Mildred had a couple of jobs in the early years, but spent most of her working years at Rosehaven – first in the laundry department, then in the sewing room. She was forced to retire in her mid-50s due to severe back problems. Mildred loved to sew, embroider, knit, travel and play cards – especially Bridge. She loved spending time with her friends, but most importantly, being with her family. She was active in many things through the years, and especially enjoyed the Rebecca Lodge. Just before her passing, she received a certificate for a 50-year membership with the United Church Women’s Lydia Circle. Mildred is lovingly remembered by her daughter Lorna; grandsons Brad (Lorraine) and Terry (Grace); granddaughter Shelly; great-grandchildren Elysa, Mitchell, Miranda, Shauna, Blaine, Kayla, Brandon, Carly and Cash; as well as numerous relatives and friends. Mildred was predeceased by her husband Carl; mother Helena; father Martin; and eight brothers and sisters. Many thanks to Home Care, Pine Cottage and Aspen Cottage for their great care. Mildred resided in Camrose and area all her life and is now at peace in her beloved city. A Funeral Service was held at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday July 28, 2012 from Camrose United Church with Mary Ann Pastuck and Rev. Melody Small officiating. Interment has taken place at Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Cross Cancer Institute. To send condolences please visit

Mrs. Elizabeth Alice Agnes “Nancy” Smith of Rimbey, Alberta and formerly of Camrose passed away in the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Tuesday July 24, 2012 at the age of 74 years. She was predeceased by her loving husband Rodney on February 15, 2009, as well as by her parents George and Helen Nattrass; one sister Jessie Fossen; brother-in-law Mel Fossen; and one niece Audrey Frerichs. Nancy is survived by her two loving children, son David Smith of Whitecourt, Alberta and her daughter Betty (Wayne) Clark of Rimbey, Alberta; two grandsons Kyle Smith of Whitecourt and Grady Clark of Rimbey. Nancy also leaves to mourn two brothers Sonny (Marilyn) Nattrass of Morinville, Alberta, and Tom (Loretta) Nattrass of Strome, Alberta; and one sister Ellen (Dale) Unger of Salmon Arm, British Columbia. Nancy was a true medical pioneer, born with two holes in her heart and a heart murmur. With only a 30 percent chance of survival, Nancy was the fourth person in Alberta and one of the first in all of Canada to undergo open heart surgery on January 15, 1958 at the age of 19. It took five hours and 44 pints of blood, many donated by friends and family in her hometown of Strome, Alberta. Her surgeon Dr. John Callaghan would perform the same surgery another 3,680 times before retiring in June of 1990. Dr. Callaghan received the Order of Canada in 1985. No other person in the province survived longer than Nancy. Nancy went on to lead a full life for many years. She worked for over 20 years as a legal assistant. In 1993, Nancy went on 24-hour-a-day oxygen. She still managed to travel and get around just fine with her ever-present tank in tow. After the sudden passing of her beloved Rodney in 2009, Nancy’s health deteriorated to the point that she moved to Parkland Seniors’ Lodge in Rimbey in August 2011 to be closer to her daughter Betty. In June of this year, she was placed in long term care where she resided until her passing. Family and friends were invited to a time of visitation at Camrose United Church on Monday, July 30, 2012 at 12:00 noon. Funeral services were held from Camrose United Church on Monday, July 30, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Brian Hunter officiating. Interment followed in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose.

Joanne Hildebrandt, Owner JoJos Maze Craze and 18 Hole Mini Golf Joanne Hildebrant always knew that her ideal career would involve the outdoors, fresh air and plenty of exercise. Five years ago, when she and husband Ken moved to their new location just 10 min. outside of Camrose, they had the perfect space to implement their ideas – and JoJos Maze Craze was born! In short order, an eight-acre trivia corn maze was prepared. Next came a beautiful and challenging 18 hole mini golf course – complete with water and sand hazards! A petting zoo was also an absolute must for Joanne and husband Ken. “So many kids today don’t get any exposure to these kinds of animals,” she states. Certainly the menagerie of mini donkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits and peacocks always elicits huge smiles from the children who get to spend some time with them. Last year, two new attractions were added. A 20’ giant inflatable slide and an inflatable bounce house provide lots of fun for kids and adults! Open from the May long weekend (the corn maze opened July 28) until the first snowfall, Joanne is always adding new looks and ideas to her family friendly retreat. Picnic areas and fire pits are available. Har-Fest (third weekend of Sept.) is an annual celebration of the season and includes a whole day’s worth of fun activities. Visitors are also encouraged to pick their own pumpkins from the abundant pumpkin patch. Birthday parties, Scouts and Guides, family reunions, staff parties and school groups are always welcomed at JoJos. As Joanne points out, “Our goal was to have something fun and economical for families and groups of all ages, and I think we’ve accomplished that.”

Diane Calahoo, Owner Ideal Weight Loss Center It's interesting how one stage of our life can just naturally lead into the next. This is exactly what happened with the dual businesses of "Reflexology by Diane" and "Camrose Ideal Weight Loss Center," situated on Main Street. Diane Calahoo had been doing reflexology for over 11 years and was very aware of how her clients’ state of health affected their quality of life. When the opportunity to start Camrose Ideal Weight Loss Center came along, she and husband Chris didn’t hesitate. They combined both businesses under one roof and Diane couldn’t be happier. “I love what I do,” she simply states. “Seeing our clients making great health changes in their lives, reaching their goals and maintaining their new level of happiness is just wonderful.” Camrose Ideal Weight Loss Center is based on the principle of the Ideal Protein weight loss method which is a muscle sparing fat-targeting four-step protocol, helping clients reach their goal weight. Clients get weekly support sessions from their accredited Ideal Protein health care professional, and receive weight and measurement progress analysis as well as ongoing nutritional education. Diane also firmly believes in the age-old adage of practicing what you preach. Using the principles and supplements of her Weight Loss Center, she lost 47 lbs. and continues to maintain her ideal weight. “Our products have wonderful flavours and textures, and our clients (including myself) think they taste great!”

Jennifer Dalkin, Owner Budget Blinds Jennifer was always pleased with the quality, service and prices offered by Budget Blinds and was herself a repeat customer of the company before she purchased the Camrose/Leduc office. The first thing she wants people to know is, “Don’t let the company name mislead you. We do all styles from basic blinds and window coverings to the very elaborate and upscale, including accessories. For example, for a bedroom we can do throw pillows or a bedspread to match the window coverings. Whatever our client wants,” she says. Budget Blinds is a full service company. Not only do they offer a free home consultation before any purchase, Jennifer highly recommends it. “Looking at samples and swatches in a showroom is entirely different from looking at them in your own home,” she says. “It’s important to see colors and styles in your own lighting and space. Once you’ve made your choices we take care of the rest, including the installation. We also have a 5 year no questions asked guarantee on top of the regular manufacturer’s warranty. We always say we have a blind for every budget and a style for every point of view,” says Jennifer. “And it’s very gratifying to meet with people and help them choose products that make their house a home.” Camrose Area

Chris Zamora, Owner Global Pets Chris Zamora believes in feeding her two dogs and a cat quality food and treats. In fact this is how Chris, now a franchisee of stores in Camrose (2006) and Wetaskiwin (2007), first got introduced to Global Pet Foods – a Canadian company 150 stores strong! Of note is the fact two of Chris’s three siblings also own and operate Global Pet Foods stores! Global Pet Foods sources and sells private label, natural and holistic foods that are priced right. To make it to the shelves of franchisee’s stores, foods must contain all natural ingredients and have no artificial preservatives. Many brands are exclusive to the chain and are from Canadian manufacturers. This policy certainly matches Chris’ personal philosophy for the feeding of Ella (a Maltese), Morgan (smooth Collie) and Simon – her Siamese cat! While Chris sells premium pet foods and an impressive assortment of pet treats and supplements, toys and accessories, a lot of her customers drop by her store on 48 Avenue in Camrose for pet advice or just to talk about their animals (which are very much welcome inside). As one passionate about animals, she can easily relate to problems others may be having. Chris is a huge supporter of the Battle River Protection Society, a member of the Chamber of Commerce in Camrose and Wetaskiwn, and loves spending time outdoors with her husband, Paul, a firefighter. In her spare time she enjoys the company of two-legged friends and knitting, every Tuesday evening.

Ford F-150 Motor Trend Truck of the Year By Dan Jensen

The 2012 Ford F-150 has been named winner of the prestigious Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award. "This is the fourth time the F-150 has won this award," said Lamb Ford Sales sales manager Brett Read. "No other truck has won the award as many times." Motor Trend editors applauded the F-150 because, they said, "F-150s are built to work and felt better the more they were challenged. Ford offers an enormous variety of configurations and designs, making the truck tailorable to just about any need. It's the combination of advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and the performance of intended function that has earned the Ford F-150 the title of Motor Trend's 2012 Truck of the Year." New appearance package

The Ford F-150 comes with a new FX appearance package that delivers a unique look with stealthy, flatblack accents. The look is set off with black fender and tailgate badges that feature red lettering, which is carried into the interior with a red-stitched steering wheel. The FX interior also features black leather seating surfaces with red perforations and red piping. Unique interior touches include black-painted dash accents, brushed-metal surfaces and satin shifter knob, door handles and air conditioning vent bezels. Also new for 2012, the FX luxury package now offers cooled front seats, which combine with the previously available heated seats. Fuel efficiency and performance

The powertrain lineup delivers a mix of best-in-classhorsepower, torque capability and fuel economy. The 3.7 litre four-valve Ti-VCT V6 produces 302 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 278 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. Two-wheel-drive models use just 13.84 litres per 100 km in the city and 10.23 litres per 100 km on the highway. The maximum towing capacity when properly equipped is 6,100 pounds. The 5.0 litre four-valve dual-overhead-camshaft TiVCT V8 produces 360 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,250 rpm. Two-wheel-drive models use just 15.68 litres per 100 km in the city and 11.2 litres per 100 km on the highway. The 6.2 litre two-valve single-overhead-camshaft V8 produces 411 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 434 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,500 rpm. The maximum trailer towing capacity when properly equipped is 11,300 lbs. The 3.5 litre TiVCT EcoBoost produces 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm on regular fuel and a best-in-class 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,500 rpm. Up to 90 per cent of peak torque is available from 1,700 rpm to 5,000 rpm. Maximum trailer towing capacity is 11,300 pounds. "The 3.5 litre EcoBoost now accounts for more than 40 per cent of F-150 retail sales and is on pace to exceed 100,000 sales in less than a year on the market," said Read. Upgrades on the 2012 F-150's drivetrain include replacing last year's electronic shift-on-the-fly with a twospeed automatic 4x4 system for Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. The system still offers four high and four low modes, but now also offers a 4x4 auto mode. If the truck senses a loss of traction, it immediately transfers

torque to the front wheels, making the system more seamless for the customer. Electronic shift-on-the-fly is now standard on XL to FX4 trim levels. A new feature, Hill Start Assist, helps keep the truck from rolling backward at a stop, making it easier to pull away when on a slope or a hill, especially when towing. With the brake pedal pressed, if sensors detect the vehicle is on a slope, the system is automatically activated. Brake pressure is held in the braking system and the truck remains stationary on the slope for up to two seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal. Power assisted steering

The 2012 F-150 offers customers plenty of technologies that boost capability, performance, driving enjoyment and fuel efficiency. One such technology is the classexclusive electric power-assisted steering (EPAS). The system has been carefully tuned with sophisticated speed mapping to deliver accurate responses at high speed while remaining light and manageable in parking maneuvres. "Ford is the first manufacturer to widely offer EPAS on full-size pickup trucks," said Read. "EPAS contributes about a four per cent fuel-economy benefit compared with conventional hydraulic systems." Strong backbone

Strategic use of high-strength steel in key structural elements, including the fully boxed, ladder-style frame and ultra-high-strength steel in the passenger safety cage helps F-150 deliver its class-leading capabilities while maintaining a lighter weight than it could using plain steels. Twin-tube shocks at all four corners help refine the ride and improve control in various road conditions, while wide rear leaf springs provide outstanding axle control and balance ride smoothness. Tuned, shear-style body mounts help keep road vibration away from the vehicle body.

Four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock brake system provide the confidence of a firm pedal feel backed by substantial stopping power. The tailgate step is a class exclusive option that makes accessing the cargo Dan Madison box easy. Just raise the grab bar and flip down the side-resistant step. Box side steps are another class-exclusive F-150 option. There's one on each side of the box and each can handle 227 kg. You can deploy or stow them with your feet. Cutting-edge technology

F-150's cutting-edge technology eases your drive in so many ways. Take the standard electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering that makes parking and other low speed manoeuvres much easier while helping you achieve better fuel efficiency. This new steering system even counteracts the pull of a crowned road or steady crosswind and damps out steering wheel vibration from small road irregularities. The new LCD productivity screen in the available message centre features engaging, easy-to-use menus that can help you track fuel usage, explore unique truck applications, and much more. The class-exclusive OffRoad display gives you instant feedback on pitch angle, wheel direction and bank angle. Steering-wheel mounted controls enable you to keep both hands on the wheel while utilizing this available technology. The rear view camera option displays a full-colour image in your auto-dimming rearview mirror or on the available Navigation System's screen.

Open Door hosts Harvest Gala, annual Bed Races By Murray Green

The Camrose Open Door Association will be hosting its second Harvest Gala on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Norsemen Inn and its seventh annual bed races on Sunday, Sept. 29, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. "Last year was our most successful yet with $20,000 raised at the bed races," said Open Door executive director Randal Nickel. "The bed race is an event that fits closely with our mission to meet the needs of youth who find themselves at risk. Housing is a key aspect of our support for local youth. The bed race idea began as a great way to raise fun and funds to provide local youth with supportive housing." To enter a team in the bed races, it takes a team of five people and a bed that could be anything from a crib to a coffin. The team, raises pledges prior to the event and then races the bed in several heats on the day of the event. "We not only want teams to enter, but to challenge others to participate in the event as well," added Randal. "We are hoping for about 12 teams this year." A Facebook page is dedicated to the bed race. Click “like” us and share your updates, challenges, photos and news on the site www. Lead sponsor Creative Bedrooms is hosting a kick-off barbecue on August 10, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., to accept entries, pick up registration forms, take donations and sell Harvest Gala tickets. "Our goal is to raise $25,000 this year. People can donate the cost of one bed per night for youth at risk at $50," said Randal. The Church of God Youth Group is the defending champion and holder of the prestigious bedspring trophy. Scotiabank is the two-time defending fundraising champions and holder of the prestigious stuffed mattress trophy. "We hope that teams will consider some healthy competition for a good cause," added Randal. Shauna Arrowsmith of Creative Bedrooms is the chair of the planning committee and wants a NASCAR theme to the event. "We really want to encourage participation. If your team wants to enter and you don't have a bed, no problem," said Shauna. "Used beds may be available from us if it is difficult to make a bed. We want people to donate beds as well. If you are short a team member, bed racers may be available from the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus. Just let us know how we can help." Continued on page 37

Do our children have the skills they need to succeed? By Kari Cameron, Early Childhood Program Coordinator, Camrose Family Resource Centre, A Parent Link Centre

A group of local citizens and agency reps from Tofield, Camrose County, City of Camrose and Bashaw recently received some interesting information to help them begin answering that question. The Camrose and Area Early Child Development Coalition was formed about eighteen months ago, as part of a provincial Early Child Development (ECD) Mapping Initiative. The initiative is a five-year research and community development project intended to help Albertans better understand how their young children are doing, and to assist local groups in working together more effectively to support healthy early child development. The initiative is funded by the government of Alberta and involves the Ministries of Education, Health and Wellness and Human Services. One aspect of the EC-Map project has involved assessing the overall readiness of young children currently entering kindergarten. Using a tool called the Early Development Instrument kindergarten teachers have assessed children individually, but reported according to postal codes in order to give us population based data; similar to census data that allows us to relate how children are doing developmentally to the community in which they live. “The EDI Assessment is

really about helping communities better understand where their children are at as a group, and the role communities play in supporting healthy development of young children,” explains Kari Cameron, the Camrose and Area ECD Program Coordinator. “Our Camrose and area Coalition has been anxiously awaiting the results for our region to be released.” Cameron continues. “All members of our coalition have an interest in ensuring that children enter kindergarten with the skills they need to be successful. These skills aren’t limited to academics, but include social and emotional skills as well." Cameron explains the EDI tool. "Screening of kindergarten children was completed by kindergarten teachers, with parental consent, using the Early Development Instrument (EDI) to assess kindergarten readiness in their students. Each child is screened individually but the results aggregate data. The EDI assesses readiness in five key development areas: language and thinking skills, emotional maturity, physical health and well-being, social competence, and communication skills and general knowledge.” "Overall,” Cameron reports, “Seventy-five percent of children are adequately prepared for kindergarten in all five domains. Although this is good, is it good enough? Our results mean that of one out of every four children entering kindergarten enters

without all of the skills he or she needs to optimally learn. Is this good enough? Not for children who are a little bit more challenged in terms of readiness; not for their families, and, I would add, not for our community as a whole. " So what is the Camrose and Area ECD Coalition role in receiving this data? Earlier this year, the Coalition undertook a community survey to identify what young families see as assets in their community. Through this process, Coalition members will discover what programs, services, and other things might not be working and support those that are. All the information will help guide the Coalition in planning how we can help more children achieve optimal readiness. “Strong, caring communities help to create the supports that all young children deserve and need to thrive and do well in their lives,” Cameron says. How can a community contribute? Recent research indicates that the environment and community in which a child lives has a greater impact on optimal early childhood development than genetics do. Everyone in the community has a role to play in supporting young children and their parents to help all children reach their potential. Consider joining our local ECD Coalition. Call Kari Cameron for more information: 780-672-0141 or browse for information on the ECMAP project and early child development. Continued on page 28

Skills to succeed

Continued from page 27

As Cameron points out, “Kindergarten readiness can be an indicator for future trends such as high school completion, work force employment, etc. Research tells us that if we invest $1 to enhance Early Childhood Development, we will see an $8 return as the child grows into adulthood. Where else can you get that kind of return on your investment?" Over the next few months, the Coalition will be providing specific information for each of the five EDI categories. Future submissions will also highlight the local assets identified by young families, and include ideas on how to enhance early childhood development in everyday play activities. Stay tuned!

Calder Cup coming to Forestburg

By Dan Jensen

Evan Oberg will be bringing the American Hockey League (AHL) championship trophy to his home town of Forestburg August 2. Evan and his teammates from the Norfolk Admirals won the championship over the Toronto Marlies June 9 in a four-game sweep. The cup will be displayed from 7 to 9 at the Forestburg Golf Club. Oberg played two seasons of college hockey for the University of Minnesota-Duluth after spending his junior career with the Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Unselected in the NHL Entry Draft, he was signed by the Vancouver Canucks, of the NHL, as a free agent in April, 2009. He played two seasons with the Canucks' AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, before being traded in February, 2011, to the Florida Panthers, who assigned him to their farm team, the Rochester Americans. He joined the Norfolk Admirals after being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning in December, 2011. Oberg netted his first pro/ AHL goal with Manitoba on December 27, 2009, and made his NHL debut with Vancouver in a game against Calgary on February 9, 2010. He played his 100th career AHL game on June 2, 2011, with Manitoba. In his college career, Oberg scored the game-tying goal with 0.8 seconds left in MinnesotaDuluth's 5-4 overtime win over Princeton in the NCAA West Region semifinal on March 27, 2009. He finished second in scoring among defencemen with Minnesota-Dulith in 2008-09. The coveted Calder Cup has been a motivational force for American Hockey League teams throughout the league's 76-year history. The cup is named for Frank Calder, who served as the National Hockey League's first president, from 1917 to 1943. During the 1920s he was instrumental in guiding hockey into the mainstream of America's major cities, including Boston, New York, Detroit and Chicago, while helping with the formation of the American League.

Protective services views new truck permit system By Murray Green

The Camrose County will be participating in the province's implementation of a web based Transportation Routing and Vehicle Information System (TRAVIS) to allow industry to apply for all required transportation permits. These permits are primarily for overweight and over-size loads moving throughout Alberta. "Each municipality will enter and maintain information within the TRAVIS system. This will include all roadway restriction information, bridge limits, construction and all related permit conditions for movement within that municipality," said county administrator Steve Gerlitz. "Applications can be automatically approved based on rules established within the municipality, or may be manually reviewed by municipal staff." A municipality will have the option to hire a private contractor to help fulfill all of the ongoing requirements of the system, or input data on its own. "The system was designed to integrate all municipal roads across the province," said Kerry Leslie, TRAVIS specialist, Alberta Transportation. "The county can advise truckers on which route to use. If a route fails (bridge out) it would show an alternate route. The county can approve the permits with a cell phone.

Updates can be made for road bans or construction. A fixed fee will be attached to the permits, so the county doesn't have to collect fees. Because this operates 24/7 it should reduce your workload of calls to the county." Currently, the county receives requests for overweight and over-dimensional permits by phone directly from clients, by email, or a permitting company. The commodity and routes are verified and a Camrose County Permit number is assigned to each move. Road Data has the authority to approve all overweight and service rig moves that occur on a weekend, as long as it is dry track. These requests are verified with a permit number given to them on the following work day. "The TRAVIS system will enable county employees to better monitor all over-dimensional and overweight permits approved by Camrose County," added Steve. "If people call in to us, we can direct to this system. If they need a permit, they have to use this system. If they are just using county roads, they still should use the system, but we can help." Administration and protective services will be notified when a permit has been approved for travelling on county roads. Camrose County approved using the system with Alberta Transportation.

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.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER July 31, 2012

County shares dust control costs with Bawlf By Murray Green The Village of Bawlf and the Camrose County will be partnering to control the dust on Vrolson Road on a 50/50 cost sharing basis of about $812. Camrose County received a letter of request from the Village of Bawlf from Mayor Gordie Blatz to cost-share dust control on Vrolson Road for the 2013 budget. This will be around the old and new school location on the north end of the village. "Prevailing winds carry the dust into the school yard causing health concerns, large truck traffic enters Bawlf and either travel to the elevator or to Highway 13 and the Village of Bawlf may be forced to restrict large truck traffic on this roadway," said Mayor Gordie in his letter to the county. The county received the same request from the Village of Bawlf in February 2010. "After council's discussion, the following motions were adopted: that Camrose County supply equipment in terms of the water truck and grader to assist in the application of dust control on Vrolson Road, which was defeated," explained county administrator Steve Gerlitz. "Then the council moved that the county does not partner with the village to costshare dust control suppression on Vrolson Road within the Village of Bawlf." The county shares dust control costs with the Village of Hay Lakes; however, it is a county road that runs along side of the village. Vrolson Road runs into Bawlf and a portion of the road in not under the county's jurisdiction. "The majority of the traffic is coming from county residents," said councillor Brain Austrom. "With the construction of a new school it will be a very busy road." Total material and equipment cost for the dust control is estimated at $1624.76. The county agreed to pay half of the costs. No change The county decided against switching its committee format for this year. "Everything has been working well, so I don't see a need for a change on our part," said councillor Trevor Miller. Council asked that a letter be sent under the Reeve's signature to Mayor Chalmers, City of Camrose, indicating that Camrose County is not interested in amalgamating the Camrose Intermunicipal Committee and the City/County Cost Sharing Agreement (Recreation Committee) to an expanded role that could include other agreements/ mutual interest matters under one umbrella because Camrose County feels the agreements are specific and unique and the current structure works well. Administration met with city manager Damian Herle to look at the possibility of expanding the council committee last month.

LABOURERS Investors Group executive financial planner Corey Kudrowich presented a cheque for $1,000 to Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler. By Dan Jensen

The Investors Group Community Endowment Fund with the Battle River Community Foundation has been given another boost. Investors Group executive financial planner Corey Kudrowich presented a cheque for $1,000 to Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler July 23. Investors Group Camrose set up its community endowment fund more than 10 years ago with the first of three commitments of $3,300. Money from the fund is used to support grass-roots projects. "We, like other businesses in the city, were inundated with requests for funding and we couldn't deal with them all. We also knew that the Foundation had an excellent process for determining where the funds could be best allocated." The investment by the Investors Group in Battle River Community Foundation is one that will continue to pay dividends 100 years from now. Only the income that is generated on the fund is used to make gifts to charitable organizations that improve life in the communities they serve." "It's a gift that keeps on giving in perpetuity," said Kudrowich. "It is the epitomy of long-term financial planning." Since its founding in 1995, the BRCF has granted over $1,466,000 to worthwhile projects and initiatives in Camrose and throughout the Battle River area. Recipients this past year ranged from the Reading University program in Camrose and Tofield and the volunteer firefighters in Sedgewick to the Daysland Hall Society and Camrose Open Door Association. In all, grants were made to 160 charities and organizations. Donors may choose to support the BRCF and help make a difference to the future by establishing a fund in the name of a family member or loved one, making a gift of cash or securities, making a donation in honour or memory of a friend, making a pledge to be fulfilled over a specified period of time, including the Foundation in their wills or estate plans, giving a gift of life insurance, or giving to an existing fund.

Besides the races, a Zumba session will be held prior to the event to get everyone ready. "We will have the racers and the crowd in shape for the event. We have the Camrose Spirals and Fox TaeKwon-Do students lined up for demonstrations between racing rounds," said Shauna. Last year, the two events were held on the same day. "It was a long day for us. We like to have the bed races at the CRE because then we don't have to worry about the weather," said Randal. "We had nine teams and have averaged between eight and eleven every year. We would like 12 or more teams and have the problem of re-making the schedule because we have more teams." The Harvest Gala had about 170 people attend last year. "We would like about 250 to attend this year. We think it will be a great event. Teacher-comedian Ken Valgardson will be the emcee and provide us with some entertainment," Randal said. "It should be fun and a non-alcohol event. It matches our theme of helping youth." "We will have MP Kevin Sorsenson as our live auctioneer. Not only is he fantastic, but I don't believe any other community can claim that their MP is a professional auctioneer," said Shauna. "We will also have some silent auction items. Mission auction funds buy a bed for the teens and we can issue tax receipts. Some Cafe Connections dessert items may also end up in the auction." The Open Door is currently gathering items for the auctions. Contact Randal, Shauna or Open Door office manager Sam Backus if you are interested in participating in the bed races or need an information package.

Just like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, every teenage girl will eventually turn into a lovely young woman, an amazing transformation during which she will develop self-confidence and selfesteem. While girls experience this stage of their lives in many different ways, they all have the same dream of feeling beautiful and comfortable with themselves. It is at this age that skin care should become a daily ritual for the rest of a woman’s life. Helping in this endeavour is a multitude of beauty products designed specifically for younger women of all skin types and budgets. The first thing you should know before going shopping for skin care products is what type of skin you have: normal, dry, oily, mixed, sensitive or acne-prone. Every young woman should follow the same daily beauty routine for fresh, glowing skin: makeup removal, cleaning, toning, moisturizing and sun protection. Once a week, the skin should be exfoliated with a gentle scrub followed by a moisturizing or purifying mask. A refreshing eye gel will work miracles on those mornings when it’s difficult to wake up. A teenager’s skin has to cope with an overproduction of sebum, which means that pimples and blackheads are often inevitable. But whatever you do, don’t squeeze them with dirty hands. Even better, entrust your blemishes to a professional by having a facial done by an esthetician. For advice on suitable skin care products, don’t hesitate to ask advice from a pharmacist or to consult a dermatologist. Eating well, drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, and protecting your skin from the sun is the perfect recipe for radiant skin. And for those who would like to enhance their looks, imagine your face as an empty canvas and experiment with a little light makeup. Once again, an esthetician can give excellent advice on a look that suits you and products that will not irritate your skin.
