ing more power than all of those communities put together. "I was in Brooks. I turned to the audience and asked them what are they doing with all that power? Unless Brooks has a few grow operations that we don't know about, what will Brooks do with all that power? Are you putting heat coils on every street so you don't have to use snowplows in the winter? People in Brooks don't know what to do with the power. It doesn't make sense. There is no connection to Calgary." The government confirmed that it wants the new lines to export power at the cost of all Albertans. "There is a legal loop hole I have found. The utility commission still has the authority to deny this Bill 50 line if the evidence before the commission is not in the public interest because the social and economic costs exceed the benefits," said Mr. Wilson. "All of the major industry leaders say this is not in the public interest. If the rates go up, hockey rinks and schools will soon be closed because we can't afford them. That leads to more job losses. It effects all of us." Mr. Wilson suggested that until Bill 36 came along, there were limits on the amount of power the government could have. With the Bill, it will be similar to Eastern European countries in the past. "We will no longer have democracy if this goes through." He suggested people need to speak up, write letters to the editor and spread the word to change the direction we are headed in this province. To do nothing is like saying, "Don't worry, it's not your end of the boat that has a hole in it. Bill 50 is at your end of the boat."

Tougher water rules aimed at campgrounds By Murray Green

Camrose County is concerned about over regulation when it comes to supplying potable water to campgrounds. The Health Protection Branch recently distributed a survey regarding potable water supplied at campgrounds and recreation areas. "There appears to be movement afoot to clarify and most likely change the regulations surrounding potable water at campgrounds and the like and possibly increase the requirements and standards of potable water being made available," said assistant county administrator Al Radke. "Bottom line, there could potentially be capital costs involved for private and public operators of such recreation facilities. If potable water needs to be treated or treated potable water meeting the treatment conditions and standards needs to be hauled in, this will affect the water being supplied at both Tillicum Park and Pelican Point Park." This will refer to water that is utilized for consumption as well as water that is used for washing or bathing. E-coli could be absorbed through the skin when bathing. "The province will restrict what the uses of water can be and how it is to be handled and what criteria it must meet. The County outright owns Tillicum Park so the decision to pursue or comply with water regulations will be solely a conscious policy. Pelican Point on the other

hand is a lease from the province. Any developments or improvements will likely be on provincial lands or be an improvement and asset or beneficial to Crown lands." The Health Protection Branch's initial response is they will not assist in funding any capital requirements to comply with potable water regulations. "This initiative, if approved, will potentially have a huge impact on both private and public campgrounds and recreation operators," added Al. "It could make both private and public campground and recreation operators re-consider the feasibility and viability of their operations." It could lead to Provincial leases being dropped or cancelled. Councillor Glen Nelson moved that the County not engage in any advocacy at this point, until it receives more information. All councillors agreed that the reeve send letters of concern to the ministers involved. "If the government is imposing more regulations on us, then they should be willing to pay for the costs," said disgusted councillor, Vern Peterson. "We are getting bogged down with too many regulations." Councillor Trevor Miller said, "This means you can swim in the water that has fish, ducks, geese and leaches but you can't bathe in well water. It doesn't make sense to me."

County helps with art days celebration

By Murray Green

Camrose County is a bronze sponsor of the Camrose Arts Society's version of Alberta Arts Days. Council decided, on August 9, to help sponsor the event, which will be held from September 30 to October 2. Arts society president Theo Thirsk explained in a letter sent to both city and county council that there will be events for the whole family. "In the spirit of Alberta Arts Days, all of the other activities mentioned will be free to anyone who wishes to participate," said Theo. "The $5,000 we will be receiving from the government will cover all these activities, but not the kick-off show. We will need to charge for this event unless we can get some generous sponsors to give us a helping hand. If we can get enough sponsors, we will be able to offer two shows and

provide an exciting cultural experience to bring families together." The goal is to raise $3,000 to put on this opening show. Councillor Glen Nelson moved to provide a bronze sponsorship of $125. "I think arts are very important to county residents." Alberta Arts Days has grown steadily and has quickly become a staple event for Albertans. This year, the goal is to ensure Albertans have access to a wide range of cultural experiences and encourage a greater love and appreciation for the arts. This is the fourth annual Alberta Arts Days in Camrose. For more information on the Camrose activities or to volunteer to help, contact Jane Cherry-Lemire at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre, 780-672-9949. Various volunteer positions are available.

Abandoned cemeteries need repairs, development plans By Murray Green

Camrose County councillor Vern Peterson reported that someone would like to make repairs to the Lake Demay cemetery. Vern was looking for advice as to who looks after the abandoned cemeteries in the county. Administration reported that the property owners, the former churches, usually look after them. "We can search the land titles to see who owns the cemetery and go from there," said county administrator Steve Gerlitz.

Development plans

County planner Anjah Howard recommended that council send a letter to the City of Camrose, stating no objections to their proposed Municipal Development Plan. The City of Camrose plan dates to 1999 and has not been updated to include the annexed lands from 2001 and 2010. The proposed plans will update the mapping to bring it into compliance, and ensure that it is compatible with the City's Municipal Sustainability Plan and other master

plans for the area. "The plan is a very basic document and should have no impact on Camrose County, since we already have an Intermunicipal Development Plan that addresses any intermunicipal issues." Council gave first reading to redistricting bylaw 1213 - Pt. E1/2 SW 14-48-21-W4 from A (agriculture) to CR2. The site is about 4.8 acres. The applicant has requested that this land be rezoned in order to allow him to divide the existing yard site from the remaining lands. "However, the quarter is

already divided into three pieces. If allowed, this would create the fourth parcel on the quarter," said Anjah. "By giving first reading to the bylaw, it allows the county to advertise the proposal for public comment. Notices will be sent to the adjacent landowners." Council also gave first reading to bylaw 1214 for the closure of the undeveloped road allowance adjacent to the E1/2 of 8-49-20W4. "The landowners adjacent to this road allowance have requested that it be closed to general public access for safety and secu-

rity concerns related to unwanted access and trespassing. The south half of the road allowance is built to agricultural access standards; the north half is not constructed at all," explained Anjah. Rather than consolidating the road into the adjacent lands, administration has suggested that the county maintain ownership of the roadway and lease the lands to the applicants. This way, if the road is ever needed in the future, the county will still have ownership.

Bailey Theatre filling with bookings By Dan Jensen

The bookings are beginning to come in for the newly restored Bailey Theatre. "We're getting the calendar filled up," said Bailey Theatre manager Tracey Clark. "We're starting to get a lot of private rentals." Two of the most significant bookings are Jimmy Snow, son of legendary Country singer Hank Snow and Toronto-based guitarist Jesse Cook. Snow will be performing at the theatre October 11. The theatre is also receiving bookings for weddings in 2012, as well as conferences and appreciation dinners. In December, About Time Productions will present The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. One of the pressing needs at the Bailey Theatre at this time, said Clark, is a suitable piano. "The only piano we have in the theatre right now is one that was found in the theatre when we first started the restoration," said Clark. "We had it restored and it sounds pretty good but it is not a concert style piano. We need a good piano that sounds good from the stage. We have been told by people from other theatres that there will be some performers that won't come to the theatre if there isn't a good piano on which they can play." The preferred choice of a piano at this time would be a second hand grand. The cost of a new grand piano would be $50,000 or more. "It all depends on what we can find," said Clark. We had found a church that was going to be getting rid of a grand piano but as it turned out it was too big for the theatre. "We need something that we can get up onto the stage." The Bailey Theatre Society still needs to raise approximately $1 million – $600,000 to pay off the loan (that was necessary to finish construction) and $400,000 for an endowment fund for operating costs. "We are trudging along," said Clark. "These are trying times to be raising funds, but we have been very fortunate. The art loving community has been very good to us."

New election rules coming into effect New rules to better govern third party advertising during provincial election campaigns will increase transparency and provide voters with a better understanding of who is paying for political advertising. “These new rules will allow Alberta voters to know exactly who is funding the advertising they are seeing on billboards, TVs, and newspapers or hearing on the radio,” says Verlyn Olson,

Minister of Justice and Attorney General. “This is a big step in increasing transparency and openness during election campaigns.” Under the new rules: every political advertisement paid for by a third party must display the name and contact information of the sponsor; third parties must register with the Chief Electoral Officer if they spend $1,000 or more on

advertisements that run during a provincial campaign period, or if they accept $1,000 or more in contributions to pay for ads that run during the campaign period; and, once they reach this $1,000 threshold, the third party must follow rules set out in the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act regarding financial reporting, contribution limits, and related matters.

The new regulations will be administered by the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer in accordance with the provisions of the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act. Third party advertising rules were passed under Bill 7, the Election Statutes Amendment Act, 2010.

Looking back is guide to planning future The eighth annual Camrose Founders Days celebration was a significant event in Camrose this past weekend. The organizers, sponsors, plus the many volunteers who helped execute the various planned events, have earned well-deserved praise and appreciation for their effort and continuing dedication to the task of keeping us in touch with our past. There was an amazing variety of events which provided something of special interest to all ages. They included the formal honouring of another three persons named as Founders of Camrose (Mr. M.A. Maxwell, Rev. T.T. Carlson and Mrs. Carla Didrickson-Hoyme), guided tours of historical sites and sights such as the 100-year-old Old Main (now Founders’ Hall on the Augustana Campus of the U of A), the newly restored 100-yearold Bailey Theatre, the water treatment plant, a walk around the cemetery including a ghost walk, a walk through Old Sparling and a nature walk around Mirror Lake. There were historical displays at the Centennial Museum as well as the Camrose Railway Station and Park. Added to that was food, entertainment varying from clown performances to a ragtime variety show, displays and demonstrations of old-time crafts, and even more – more than any one person could see. Observing events such as Founders’ Days once a year is much more than entertainment. Drawing attention to our past helps us see where we have been and where we are. It also makes us envision where we want to go and helps us make adjustments in direction if necessary. Looking back makes us appreciate the vision of the pioneers who were here when Camrose was incorporated on Sept. 1, 1905, and also marvel at what they had accomplished by 1911 – a time span of only six years. For examples: in a horse and buggy era, why would they have developed a plan for a 100-foot-wide main street, or dedicated approximately 45 acres of land on which to construct one building – Camrose Lutheran College (now Augustana campus of the U of A)? How did they get one of only three teacher-training institutions in Alberta in 1912? The population was 1,586 at the time. Our forefathers obviously had growth in mind as they added services and amenities to make a community in which people would want to live. These included electricity, water, educational, health, recreational, music and arts services as well as a rich social life through volunteer church, fraternal and charitable organizations. Later they started to develop a parks system which is now enhancing the enjoyment of residents of all ages, for all-season walking and nature study. A review of local history reveals that Camrose growth has been quite well managed. Except for spurts of accelerated development in the 1950s, in the 1970s and earlier years of the new century, it has been slow and steady; this has simplified keeping pace with infrastructure needs and maintaining order in our municipal fiscal house. Our forefathers were initiators, too, the evidence of which is the decision, in 1912, to sponsor an entire CPR coach and send to eastern Canada a delegation of 12 local leaders along with samples of locally grown agricultural products. It worked; it resulted in the sale of goods and attracted new settlers. The observation of Founders Days has also inspired some families to record their personal histories. How families functioned over the decades, and coped with good times and bad – two World Wars, drought, the Great Depression, sometimes bumper crops, good prices, near full employment – tells us much of the dreams, tenacity, character and survival techniques of those who came before us. Again, a Booster bouquet to all those involved with bringing us another great Camrose Founders Days event!

me that 200 grams of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) a day will restore the immune system. One can extrapolate from that, I suppose, to one's own health. I personally main line vitamin C. It is non-toxic and has no side effects. I think vitamin C is the new aspirin. In my health book it says it cures even leprosy. Dr. Linus Pauling's book, Cancer and Vitamin C, is good to read. I personally think cancer is an extreme form of scurvy – i.e., a massive vitamin C deprivation or lack thereof. Tanyss Peddie, Camrose

Council supports Arts Days shows

Great School Fashions

By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose will provide $1,000 in sponsorship funding for an Alberta Arts Days kick- off show in the Bailey Theatre at the end of September. The show will be free if the Camrose Arts Society can come up with sponsorships totalling $3,000. "If we can get enough sponsors we will be able to offer two shows and provide an added exciting cultural experience to bring families together," explained Camrose Arts Society president Theo Thirsk in a July 25 letter to Mayor Chalmers and City council. The Camrose Arts Society has not yet determined who it will ask to perform at the show, but is looking at a list that could include Fred Penner. "It all depends on availability," said Thirsk. The government of Alberta is providing $5,000 to cover the costs of the Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 Arts Days activities, which will consist of a CAM FM DJ contest for teens, a Mandala art show, multicultural displays, a teen and adult writing workshop, Swinging Creations in a Bag, an old time radio show, a photography show, an instrument petting zoo, three bands at the music store, arts workshops for kids, an arts festival of local entertainers, a rehearsal with About Time Productions, and a performance of the play, Love Letters. The $5,000 we will be receiving from the government will cover all of these activities but not the kick-off show," said Thisk. Alberta Arts Days was initiated by the provincial government four years ago as an opportunity for all Albertans to access the arts. "Camrose has always tried to celebrate in some ways each of these years," said Thirsk. "This (2011) is the first year that any funding has been made available from the government and that has given opportunities that we did not have before, such as being able to offer more things." Councillor John Howard said the sponsorship of $1,000 shows council and the City of Camrose are committed to the arts. Councillor Daryl Shillington said the commitment fits in with the City of Camrose plan for economic development. The commitment leaves $4,000 in the Community Assistance Grant fund, which started the year at $25,000.

The Meridian Manufacturing Group in Camrose will be donating retractable steel poles on which Purple Martin houses are built for the Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society. From left to right, society president Glen Hvenegaard accepted the donation from Glenn Friesen, senior vice-president of Meridian with society treasurer Dan Olofson, Camrose Rotary Club's Carman Mason and Camrose Fish and Game's Tom Tomaszewski present.

The Meridian Manufacturing Group in Camrose will be helping the Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society build the retractable steel poles that Purple Martin houses are built on. "We will build a few poles each year for the Wildlife Society, so that more families can have Purple Martins on their properties," said Glenn Friesen, senior vice-president of Meridian. "We will not be selling the poles to individuals. If people want to attract Purple Martins and look after them, they need to talk to the society." The poles will be built to easily lower and raise the houses in which the birds nest. People who look after the birds are required to do regular checks on the them. The Purple Martins like to be near people, but also like to be high out of harm's way. Society president Glen Hvenegaard, who is also a professor at the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus, encourages more people to be involved in the program. "We started with eight pairs in 2003. By 2009, the numbers grew to about 170," said professor Hvenegaard. "However, the numbers went down to 107 in 2010 and now they are back up to 137. We want the number to be back up to the 2009 level next year." Rotarian Carman Mason, who houses several Purple Martins, says they are working hard to increase the population. "We would like to add houses at a number of acreages or out of the city locations." The Camrose Rotary Club helps fund the summer student program. Tom Tomaszewski, of the Camrose and District Fish and Game Association, also helps to build specially-designed Purple Martin Houses. For more information on housing Purple Martins or to volunteer, contact society treasurer Dan Olofson at 780-678-6721 or 780-672-2797. Camrose hosts a Purple Martin Festival every year at the Stoney Creek Centre in early June. A full day of bus tours, walking tours, keynote speakers and booths all about the birds is usually planned for the event. The festival is organized by the Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society.

Sorenson stresses importance of remembering By Dan Jensen

Crowfoot constituency Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson stressed the importance of remembering the heritage those who went before us in the Camrose Founders Days opening ceremony August 12. "This year we can look at the University of Augustana Faculty and be thankful for the vision and energy of Reverend Thomas Torger Carlson, who served as vice president for the Alberta Norwegian Lutheran College Association and secured both student residences and classroom space for that first year of operation," said Sorenson in a speech read by John Howard. "This year we can look at the Bailey Theatre, the promise of the Camrose Performing Arts Centre, the multitude of groups who bring to our community dance, music and the arts, and we can be thankful for the creativity and hard work of Carla Didrickson-Hoyme, who brought her skills to bear in ensuring that early on Camrose would be a place of music and the arts. "This year we can drink safe water, be grateful for sanitary sewer and storm water drainage, drive on roads that are mostly quite passable and over bridges we deem safe. These infrastructures that maintain the City of Camrose can be traced back to Mr. M.A. Maxwell, who worked for the Town of Camrose as an engineer in 1911. His role in the successful development of both the electric plant and water works installation allowed Camrose to emerge as a flourishing municipality." Sorenson said Camrose was fortunate to have leaders like Reverend Thomas Torger Carlson, Mr. M.A. Maxwell and Carla Didrickson-Hoyme. "Suffice it to say that the founders may not have held in their wildest imaginations that which we see today, yet we would not see today what is ours to enjoy if it had not been for these founders."

Camrosians warming up to compostables program By Dan Jensen

Camrosians appear to be warming up to the recently implemented compostable recycling program but still have concerns about the $4.15 per month compost collection fee on their monthly utility bills. A report presented to City council Aug. 8 by director of infrastructure services Mark Barrett showed that the organics and yard waste collected between April and June this year totalled 468.4 tonnes, compared to 112.61 tonnes for the same three months of 2010. The compostables collection truck picked up 23 per cent of the materials, while 77 per cent were delivered to the compost bunker at the recycling centre. Barrett anticipates the use of the collection vehicle will increase as people get used to the organics/compostables program.

"I don't think they understand the bag limits, and are taking it down to the recycling depot regardless," said Barrett. The City of Camrose received between 600 and 800 calls and complaints between April and June about the collection contractor service "tagging bags." "What we are finding is that they continue to put yard waste in incorrect containers, which is plastic bags," said Barrett. "We can't deal with plastic and compostables. Those (the plastic bags) are what tend to trigger the violation tags." Sixty-four calls were received from residents who needed compostable materials to be defined. Seventy-six calls were received asking about where compostable bags can be purchased, and 48 calls were received inquiring as to the number of bags permitted

for compost and garbage collection (four). Eighty calls came from residents who were upset about the compost collection fee. "A common complaint from callers upset over the fee was that they currently compost in their own back yards and do not want to pay for a program that may not affect them directly," said Barrett. "These residents were advised that by maintaining their own compost they could control the quality of material they wish to utilize. The collection program could then be used to deal with excess organics and yard waste, including weeds." Councillor Max Lindstrand said that while there are many people who are simply not accessing the service of organic collection, the organics program has been a success in that it has

kept several hundred tonnes of compostable material out of the landfill. "The yard care companies in the past put grass clippings in bags and they ended up in the landfill. That is not happening anymore, so this is a success story. "Similarly, the four bag limit restricts how much residents can send to the landfill, so more and more people are probably choosing to use their half-ton and haul the grass down to the compost bunker." Lindstrand said the City of Camrose is well on its way to achieving its goal of reducing residential waste by fifty per cent from 2009 levels by the year 2015. Councillor Brandon Blatz expressed concern about the amount of compostable and

organic waste being collected by trucks and the amount that is being taken by residents themselves to the compost bunker. He also questioned whether taxpayers of Camrose are getting the best bang for their buck. "It (the $4.15) fee is in essence a tax, as it is something that is imposed on people whether they like it or not. "They are not utilizing the $4.15 per month service, they are taking it down there (to the recycling centre) themselves." Blatz feels there is still room to review the fees that the City of Camrose charges. "I find it interesting," he said, "that the City of Red Deer is able to offer both compostables collection as well as recyclables collection (paper and plastics) at a price that is less expensive than the City of Camrose."

Schools, festivals and mountain spas By Glen Ogden

I have been living in Japan for two years now. I am teaching English in Kamifurano, the sister city of Camrose. I feel very lucky to be here and to experience the culture and people of Japan. As an English teacher for the town I go to 10 schools and I am known by almost all of the kids in town from ages 2-15. One thing that I enjoy is getting invited to join school activities, because I get a chance to interact with the kids more than just teaching English in a classroom or saying hello when they see me on the street. One of the things that surprised me was how small some of the schools are here in Japan. I have three schools that I go to that each have about 15 students in the whole school. The small schools are not the norm in Japan though, one of my Jr. High schools has 300 students for three grades. I really love the small schools because there is a greater interaction with the students and parents. They have invited me to join their school festivals and events to make me truly feel like part of the community. Two of those small schools are elementary schools and the other is a Jr. High school. In the spring time the Jr. High school had an event where they planted rice. They invited the other two small schools to help them as well as the parents in the community. In the fall time they will harvest the rice and in the winter they will make a kind of rice cake out of it. These are all very fun events to go to and I really enjoy the fact that they invite the other small schools to help them and to learn with them. Summer vacation for the kids just started here on July 22. And on July 24 Kamifurano had its town festival where people could enjoy live music and a night time parade that finished with fireworks. The following day one of my small schools invited me to go camping with them to celebrate the summer holidays. I really enjoy camping so I was eager to take them up on their offer. It was a little different than what I was used to because we ended up staying at a hotel/spa on a mountain, where I had my own room. It is a little more luxurious than the camping in Canada, but I didn't mind at all. One of the downsides of not being Japanese is that you will always be treated differently than if you were Japanese. The small schools help make me feel like I am part of the community, so I really enjoy them. Being treated differently can also mean getting a private room at a spa on a mountain, so sometimes it is good to always be treated as a guest rather then a resident.

Jane Beck, Owner/Operator The Lefse House

Jane Beck who, together with her parents Bernell and Linda Odegard, own and operate The Lefse House, is equally at home rolling dough in the spotless kitchen area or talking with customers. Either is simply part of another inevitably busy day at the irresistible, unique establishment. A NAIT graduate, Jane has helped take this authentic Scandinavian bakery and eatery to a new, exciting level since her family purchased the business in 2002. Today, all natural ingredients with no additives are exclusively used in the delicious, nutritious or, "Oh, I shouldn’t, but I’d better" Scandinavian speciality or meals. The business sells lefse. In fact, they sell loads of it! Sobey’s, the Co-op grocery chain, and delis such as Edmonton’s Sunterra Market all retail lefse produced by Jane and her growing family of dedicated staff. Jane's goal to increase the wholesale aspect of their business has paid off handsomely. Lefse, flatbread, krumkake, fattigmann and other remarkable Scandinavian favourites are perfected in the Camrose kitchen and are now routinely shipped to locations throughout the country. Recalls Jane, "Last December, we shipped a package of goodies to a Nova Scotia client. The freight was worth more than the product! It’s testament to our reputation and food quality." The Lefse House dining area is a great place to sit and experience a wonderful Scandinavian meal during the lunch hour or a special snack during your coffee break. Each Friday, the team, using Bernell’s secret cinnamon bun recipe, whips up about 16 dozen buns. They fl y out the door to offices and businesses across the city! What makes The Lefse House so special? People, recipes, attitude and manner of conducting business. Every day starts with a shopping trip for fresh meat and locally grown produce. The entire business is kept “hospital-clean”. Everyone is treated like family. Clients come and go, happy and completely satisfied! And Jane loves it! Stop by soon.

Team Alberta baseball garner gold medals By Murray Green

Team Alberta set seven records, won 117 medals and the baseball squad earned gold medals in the first week at the Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops, B.C. The stellar performances moved Alberta into second place in the medal standings behind the host British Columbia athletes on August 9. The final competition wrapped up on August 13. The men’s baseball team had a golden day on the diamond. After dropping their only game in round robin play to British Columbia, members of Team Alberta were seeking another opportunity for glory as they stepped onto the diamond to face the favourites in the gold medal game. Camrose baseball player Riley Guntrip was the main catcher on the Team Alberta baseball squad that successfully defended its crown. Head coach Rob Boik of Edmonton was confident in his team’s preparation going into the final. “With games like this, you just want your players to be focused,” said Boil. “We knew we had to be ready to play strong and even though we stumbled out of the gate, the boys kept working and brought in the victory.” Alberta was down 3-0 after

the first two innings. However, a sacrifice fly at the bottom of the third inning delivered Team Alberta’s first run, with another two runs scored at the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 3-3. Both teams scored one run in the fifth and then Team Alberta pulled away with two runs in the seventh inning to win 6-4. Team Alberta started strong by defeating Manitoba 7-4 and Saskatchewan 10-3. However, the squad knew the toughest challenge came from the host B.C. club. Against Manitoba, Alberta’s baseball team opened with a tight game, with both teams tied at one after the third inning. Alberta picked up three runs in the top of the fourth inning to lead by three, but Manitoba closed the lead to one in the fifth inning. Another three-run inning clinched the victory for Alberta, 7-4. Riley played in Camrose for the past eight years, but decided to switch to the Red Deer Braves competitive squad to give himself a bigger challenge this season. He has played both catcher and pitcher this year and sees the difference in pitching. The Summer Games involve 345 athletes who compete in several events, including basketball, baseball, canoeing, wheelchair tennis and para-swimming.

Story of last hanging to be told on Bashaw stage By Murray Green

The Bashaw Community Theatre is presenting The End of the Rope until August 21. It reopens the mass murder case of the last man hanged in Alberta and evolves around Robert Raymond Cook. Show times are on August 17, 11 p.m.; August 18, 6:30 p.m.; August 19, 2:30 p.m. and August 21, 12 noon. The End of the Rope , is an emotional one act play centered around Cook and told from the viewpoint of his law-

yer, David McNaughton. It is a two-man play that shares the conversations between Cook and McNaughton, from the time of his arrest to his eventual execution on November 15, 1960. On Sunday, June 28, 1959, seven members of the Raymond Cook family were brutally murdered and their bodies were dumped into the grease pit of their Stettler area home. The only remaining member of the family, Robert Raymond Cook, was soon accused and arrested as the prime suspect in the case.

After his arrest, Cook was sent to the Ponoka Mental Institute for psychiatric evaluation. Ten days later, he escaped and the largest manhunt in Alberta’s history ensued. More than 200 men fanned out to hunt him down. On Tuesday, July 14, a farm wife sighted a weary Cook, hiding in a pig barn. He waited there to be arrested without incident. The play stars Derek Simmers as Cook. The character of David McNaughton is played by Rob McDonald. The End of the

Rope is directed by Lori Miller, who has directed numerous community theatre productions over the past 25 years, including: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Oklahoma, Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol, Aladdin, Big River, Barnum and Aida. “It’s important to ensure that the stories which form our history are told,” said Lori. “Wherever you stand on the decision of Robert Cook, it’s the voices from our

given past, both his and all involved, that cause us to reflect, question and form an opinion.” The Bashaw Community Theatre invites you to be the judge and determine whether or not justice was served. This show contains strong language and mature content. Tickets are available by phone at 780409-1910. Tickets may also be purchased online at tickets.fringetheatre.ca. The show is also playing at the Edmonton Fringe Festival.

Loss of wheat board critical for farmers By Murray Green

The proposed elimination of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) will not only hurt farmers, but also the local Battle River Railway. BRR is the former CN (Canadian National) Alliance sub, running from Camrose to Alliance. "We have just completed our first year of operation, and we are very pleased with our performance," said chair Ken Eshpeter. "One very important factor in our success to date, and into the future, is a program we have developed in conjunction with the CWB called composite blending. It allows us to put together trains of wheat and barley that are accepted at the terminal, based upon the composite grade of the train rather than each car having to stand only on its own merits." The Battle River Railway has had success in the movement of peas and canola, however, it has not been nearly as rewarding. It hasn't been from a lack of research and effort on its part. "We are trying continually to raise the volumes of these commodities. The difficulty lies in the fact that canola and pea shipments must be made to a sale," explained Ken. "Big grain is not at all interested in creating even a tiny economic incentive for a farmer to move a producer car of canola or peas, even though there is technically a $14 elevation charge to work with. If we have no wheat board, we are concerned that big grain will be able to create exactly that same scenario, whereby our economic incentive to load and move producer cars of wheat will be severely curtailed. This would result in our short lines’ loss of viability and bankruptcy." Three factors are crucial for a small entity like the Battle River Railway to be able to continue to transport producer cars for farmers: • An unbiased entity capable of assuring allocation of producer cars. This function for wheat is currently performed by the Canadian Grain Commission upon communicating with the CWB regarding its marketing plan. This allows cars to be made available as producer cars and also assures they make their way via CN to our interchange point at Camrose. • Availability of terminal space at the west coast. "Under the current system the CWB negotiates terminal space on our behalf," said Ken. "I am very concerned that without a wheat board, it could be very difficult for small players to access affordable terminal space." • Need for inward weighing and grading. Under the current system, the CGC (Canadian Grain Commission) weighs and grades all grain entering terminal space on the coasts. This service is crucial to shippers of producer cars.. The CWB performs many important tasks on behalf of farmers, small grain companies, farmer-owned inland grain terminals and short lines like the Battle River Railway. It acts as a referee so that all entities, big or small, can play the game. Under the current system of grain movement, a company must have a confirmed sale so that it can access hopper

cars to move the grain to a port position. The CWB makes those sales on behalf of wheat and barley growers. "Without the CWB acting as our sales agent in the market place, how would small players like the ones I listed be able to go out and make that kind of sale on their own behalf? If they try to partner with a large grain company that has been trying to eliminate small players for 30 years on the prairie horizon, I see the potential for huge issues with that David and Goliath scenario," stated Eshpeter. He went on to say, "As the managers of a short line railway, I, and my board of directors, have learned a great deal about grain marketing and transportation in the last two years. We have learned that huge amounts of revenue are leaving our farming industry and rural communities and are going straight into the pockets of big grain and big rail." The elimination of the CWB will accelerate that devastating trend immensely. "I realize that big grain and big rail have an agenda, but what makes their agendas more important than those of farmers, rural communities and small grain players? Over the course of the last 20 years, many promises have been made to farmers and rural communities. These promises intimated that proposed major changes to the grain accumulation and transportation systems would result in significant economic benefits to farmers and rural communities. This scenario has not played out. Instead, we see the continued hollowing out of the rural landscape." About 150 farmers, together with that many more rural citizens, as well as agricultural societies, town and county municipalities, seed cleaning co-ops, and small businesses raised enough money to buy 50 miles of this fabulous short line from Camrose to Alliance to try to stop this continuing loss of rural infrastructure. "Our first year of operation has been very successful. Now we get the feeling that our federal government is not interested in our welfare, but instead is more interested in giving another hand up to big players that already have the upper hand. Seems a peculiar strategy for a representative, democratically elected government." The re-organization of the structure of the CWB, whereby elected farmer members became responsible for board operations, was a giant step towards helping farmers manages their own affairs and add value to their commodities. Dismantling the CWB would go a long way to recreating a master-slave relationship that exists when the negotiating parties are not on equal footing. "I strongly urge farmers who support the maintenance of the single desk to fill out the ballot that you received in the mail. Strong support for the current structure of the CWB will help the board of directors of the CWB create a strong case in convincing Parliament that farmers should decide the future of the board." A meeting for local producers to talk about the Canadian Wheat Board will be held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on Tuesday, August 16, at 7 p.m.

Physio therapist signs with pro team When Life hands you lemons, well, make the best lemonade you can. That's the position in which Jan Beran, physiotherapist for the Junior A Kodiaks, found himself this summer. Scheduled for surgery in the country of his birth, Jan and his family travelled home to Czech Republic in June of this year. However, after recovering from the surgery, his Canadian work permit was nearing an end, so he found himself stuck there. “It's been stressful” says Beran. “As Canada immigration couldn't give us any kind of commitment regarding when the work visa would be issued, all we could do was wait.” Waiting was wearing on Jan, who is used to holding down more than one job working with athletes around Camrose. “I had been kept pretty busy,” Jan laughs. “Especially when the Vikings' season would start.” So it comes as little surprise to have Jan snapped up by a professional hockey team in Slovakia. “They understand that it is just temporary,” Jan assures us. “But they were a new team to their league this year, so the position of team physiotherapist was open.” His temporary employer is Lev Poprad, a professional team whose name means “Lion of Poprad” in English. Lev Poprad is also displaced from its roots, as the new Slovakian Hockey Federation team now plays 400 km from its previous rink in Prague. “They had to move countries to get accepted into this Pro league” explains Beran. “So it has been a long journey for them as well.” While Jan is absent from his post as resident sports expert at Battle River Physical Therapy, the University teams are gearing up for the upcoming season. Being without Jan for a month or more made clinic owner Crystal Westergard concerned. To fill these big shoes, a search was made for an expert sports therapist who might be able and willing to fill in for a while. This is where James Squire came into the picture. Interestingly, he's another physiotherapist who is waiting for his paperwork to be processed. The difference is James is a Canadian waiting to immigrate to Australia. James is a physiotherapist practicing with NorMed Clinic in Sherwood Park, as well as acting as trainer and coach for the Salisbury Sabres Football team. He has applied to practice in Australia, “Where it's warmer!” says James. As Westergard says “Camrose is fortunate to have world class therapists who want to work with our teams."

By Dan Jensen

Camrose and area residents will have the chance to learn about what Alberta Transportation plans to do with the Highway 21 and 13 intersection during an open house tomorrow (Wednesday). The open house will be held between 2:30 and 7:30 in Salon A of the Norsemen Inn. The planned improvement will replace the existing signals with a single-lane roundabout, similar to the one at the intersections of Highways 20 and 11A at Sylvan Lake. "The replacement of the signals is warranted to improve the safety and traffic flow through the intersection," said Jim Lovatt, principal, Lovatt Planning Consultants. "Throughout the course of the work there will be a need to reduce the speed limits and restrict traffic lanes on both highways." Al-Terra Engineering, an Edmonton-based engineering firm, has been retained by Alberta Transportation to complete the construction of the roundabout, which is expected to begin in 2013. "It (the roundabout project) is outside our three-year budget window now but will be moved into the window in the spring, said Alberta Transportation construction manager (central region) Mike Damberger in a presentation to City council last December. Roundabouts are circular intersections in which traffic circulates in a counterclockwise direction around a centre island. Vehicles entering the roundabout must yield to traffic already in the roundabout. Benefits include slower moving traffic, fewer conflict points for pedestrians and motorists, reduced potential for right angle t-bone collisions, and the elimination of head-on and highspeed collisions. Vehicles using a roundabout are not forced to stop, which reduces delays, congestion, noise, fuel consumption and emissions. Roundabouts also have lower operation and maintenance costs than traffic signals. Modern roundabouts are different from traffic circles, such as those built in Edmonton. "The centre island of the modern roundabout is smaller and has been designed with a tighter curvature that encompasses lower speeds, resulting in a safer intersection that can accommodate more vehicles per hour," states a report from Alberta Transportation. Studies conducted in the United States have shown that roundabouts reduce collisions of all types by 40 per cent, reduce injury collisions by 75 per cent, and reduce fatal and incapacitating collisions by 90 per cent. An Alberta Transportation study for the years 2000 to 2004 showed that of the 44 collisions at the Highway 13 and 21 intersection, 22 involved a vehicle turning left across the path of traffic. Fourteen collisions were reported as injury collisions, with a total of 29 people injured. One collision was reported as a fatal collision, with one fatality and seven injured. Seventeen of the 44 collisions occurred between 3 and 6 p.m.

Mallard in for new experiences

Duncan Brown and Karli Charpentier (in photo), members of 3068 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Camrose, abseil down a rock face at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. Cadet Brown and Cadet Charpentier and 64 other army cadets are participating in the sixweek Army Cadet Expedition Instructor Course, which sees the cadets learning first aid, mountain bike skills, canoeing, abseiling, and navigation. One of the physical tests they face is abseiling down a 50-foot rock face, challenging their physical skills, overcoming their fears and building their self confidence.

The next year is going to be one of many new experiences for Abby Mallard. The sixteen-year-old daughter of Mary Ellen and Hugh Mallard, of Camrose, will be hopping on an airplane this Thursday to begin an 11-month Rotary exchange program in Ecuador, South America. "My friends think I am crazy to go away for a year but it is something I really want to do," saidAbby. "I want to explore new places and meet as many new people as I can." Abby will attend school in Ecuador while staying with between two and four Rotary families. "The courses I take there won't match up with the school program here but I am okay with that," she said. "I know that I will have to take another year of Grade 11 when I come back." Abby will also have the chance to explore different parts of the country, including the ruins of the Incan empire, the rainforest, and the biological marine reserve on the Galapagos Islands, which were studied extensively by Charles Darwin and contributed to his theory of evolution by natural selection. "For the size it is, Ecuador is a very diverse country," said Abby. "There is rainforest, mountains and coast." Abby has been gathering as much information about Ecuador as she can since she learned of her selection by the Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak last fall. She has visited with an Edmonton student who was on a Rotary exchange in Ecuador last year, and this past spring attended a gathering in Sherwood Park where she was able to discuss with outgoing and returning Rotary exchange students what she should expect. "It was awesome being able to meet everyone," she said. Abby has been working with

Abby Mallard

a computer program called the Rosetta Stone to learn to speak Spanish. "I want to be fluent in Spanish by the time I come back," she said. Ecuador was the top choice of places Abby wanted to go on the exchange when she submitted her exchange application to the Camrose Rotary club, followed by France. "I was able to choose from a big list of countries, including Brazil, Poland, Austria and Belgium," she said. "It was a bit of surprise when they told me that I had been chosen." Abby feels the Rotary exchange will give her the confidence she needs to succeed at university in a few years' time. "In a way it is a three-year commitment," she said. "The first year is the preparation that is required, the second year is the trip itself and the third year is the presentations that I will be making on my experience as I help others to understand what a Rotary exchange is all about." The Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak screening process looks for students who will be excellent ambassadors for Rotary and for Canada; who like meeting new people, are open to new ideas/ experiences, and are comfortable with change. The club looks for maturity, experience with travel, involvement in the community, and a family which fully supports the exchange. The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is one of the world's most respected exchange programs. Every year about 7,000 students spend a school year in another country, learning about that culture from the "inside," becoming fluent in another language, developing an appreciation for the culture, and forming lifelong friendships.

Palmer shares his down home roots with Camrose By Murray Green

With more than 40 years of travelling and performing behind him, Steve Palmer still brings his stellar guitar-picking and gently timbered voice to concerts across the country. Mr. Palmer is in our city for a 2 p.m. performance at the Camrose United Church, Sunday, September 11. "I've always liked Camrose. It's one of the prettier cities in Alberta that still has a small town feeling to it. We came very close to living in Camrose in 2003, but Lorraine (my girlfriend) had relatives in Nanaimo, so we tried the island for a few years," said Steve. "We wound up back on the prairies in Moose Jaw, which is very similar to Camrose, we like to think. And, of course, we've always been big CFCW and Bev Munro fans." Since the '60s, Steve has performed in almost every size of venue, from rock arenas to pubs, coffee houses and churches. Raised on gospel, country and the blues, in recent years, Mr. Palmer has returned to his acoustic roots, and will show them off in this Down Home Roots concert. After all the years of touring, Steve has grown enough to sing about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor.

"My concerts encourage a lot of audience participation, so I mix in a lot of familiar music to make it easy to join in," said Steve. "I like the gospel sounds of the Carter Family, country music in the Johnny Cash and Hank Williams style, blues, ragtime, and my own songs that are influenced by everyone from the Beatles to Ian Tyson. Folk-roots or country-roots just tells people that there will be a lot of old favourites mixed in with my own songs." After 40 years, Steve is still cranking out the energy to entertain audiences around the world. "I've just scratched the surface and it gets more and more interesting and more and more fun as I go along. Ian Tyson's still touring, Gordon Lightfoot too, not to mention Gary Fjellgard and Valdy and those guys are a lot older than I," joked Steve.

ALL SALES SUBJECT TO ADDITIONS & DELETIONS

As farmers send in their own Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) plebiscite vote, Canadians need to consider what’s at risk. Each year the CWB generates $1.5 billion in economic benefits. “In a time when we are faced with such economic instability, it is incredible that the federal government and the governments of Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia are so willing to disregard the economic strength and stability that the CWB provides. In fact, economic stability and security is a core function of the CWB’s activities. The CWB is essential for the economic health of these provinces and for Canada’s economy as a whole,” states NFU President Terry Boehm. As the Conservative government ignores the legislation, this week farmers are holding open meetings in Regina, Saskatoon, SK; Oak Bluff, Dauphin, MN; Medicine Hat and Camrose, AB. Examine the facts directly: attend the public meeting on Tues. Aug. 16, 7 p.m., at the Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE), Gold Room, 4250 Exhibition Dr. These are some implications to consider: Churchill, Manitoba, Canada's only deep-water seaport, gets 95 per cent of its port business from the CWB. Locals raise concerns that crucial business will disappear. Mayor Mike Spence states that 200 jobs are directly connected to the Canadian Wheat Board business – that’s a substantial percentage of the town's population, which is about 1,000. "How do you replace that?" Spence asks. New Democrat CWB critic Pat Martin (Winnipeg Centre) reports that “400 hundred jobs in Winnipeg at the CWB head office as well as the Canadian Grain Commission could be at risk as well.” The Manitoba government has responded to these concerns by launching an advertising campaign to save the CWB; Martin said the province had to do it because the federal government has gagged the CWB. Churchill NDP MP Niki Ashton emphasizes that the port needs the solid financial foundation of grain shipments, which last year, amounted to over 600,000 tonnes of wheat. "The loss of the Canadian Wheat Board could very well mean the loss of the port of Churchill, and losing such significant port business would have a domino effect, Ashton said. The railway — one of the few lifelines for the remote town — would probably see diminished traffic if shipments decreased, she said. Loading sites hurt

If the single desk goes, so will the producer car loading sites across all Prairie provinces. Producer cars mean farmers can bypass grain companies' elevators and save $1,200 per hopper car. The producer cars use branchlines and shortline railroads; what will happen to them and the communities along them? What about the local farmer-owned Battle River Railway? As economist Murray Fulton said, "The ... loss of the CWB's single-desk ... would make the

Canadian system ... more like that in the (U.S.) ... Grain company and railroad competition would fall, ... the current freight revenue cap would disappear, and less value would be returned to farmers ... These changes ... are irreversible.” Yet the Conservative government is moving ahead with abolishing the Wheat Board Act without doing adequate research, dismissing the farmer-initiated plebiscite vote. So the CWB decided to hold its own, prompted by the huge outcry from farmers over the Conservatives' refusal to hold one, as required in Section 47.1 of the CWB Act. “Democracy is at the very heart of Canadian citizenship. Farmers are outraged that their voting rights are being denied by the current government. They can’t deny farmers their right to vote,” said NFU President Terry Boehm. Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz says the federal election was essentially an unofficial referendum on the Board’s fate and farmers have already spoken by electing a majority Conservative government. No studies shown

Opposition members have been calling on Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz to produce any studies his government has done on the subject. "The Government must make public any proper analysis they’ve done that support the dismantling of the Canadian Wheat Board including the impact of shutting down the Port of Churchill," states New Democrat Canadian Wheat Board critic Pat Martin (Winnipeg Centre). “You can’t just scrap a multi-billion dollar corporation without doing full cost-benefit analyses.” "Great opportunity lies with the Port of Churchill, as we look at development in the Arctic – yet the loss of the Canadian Wheat Board could bring that future to a halt with the loss of the Port of Churchill," states Mike Spence, Mayor of Churchill. "At a time when Stephen Harper has said so much about his Arctic agenda – getting rid of the Port of Churchill seems highly hypocritical," concludes Niki Ashton. “The CWB belongs to Western wheat and barley farmers. – our Board is the largest wheat and barley marketer in the world – and Canada as a country sees a net benefit from the extra money that comes into it from grain sales. The CWB is good for farmers and it’s good for Canada. It’s unforgiveable that the government is refusing to follow the laws of Canada to trigger the plebiscite spelled out in the CWB Act. This is another cost that the government is downloading onto farmers,” concludes Boehm. The question remains why would our government consider opinions of a few to be more important than the majority of farmers who want the CWB and put all Canadians' economic security at risk? Do your own research, ask your MP directly. Surely PM Harper will respond to farmers’ concerns and for the best interests of all Canadians.

Yuha, Holt reach top 27 on U18 club

By Murray Green

Ewan Schellenberg of the Camrose Rockets U12 boys' soccer team moves the ball up field against the Calgary Serbia squad during provincials held in Camrose on August 5 to 7. Calgary edged the local team 5-4 in a high scoring contest.

Local U18 female hockey players Amber Yuha of Bawlf and Jessyka Holt of Bashaw survived a series of tryouts at a summer camp in Camrose last month. Hockey Alberta named 27 athletes from the U18 Female Team Alberta Provincial Camp who have been short-listed for evaluation in preparation for the 2011 National Women's Under 18 Hockey Championships. Both Amber and Jessyka made the list. The selection process started with a spring selection camp in May, where 80 athletes met to compete for one of 47 spots at provincial camp in July. Following camp, the coaching staff was faced with some extremely difficult decisions to bring the numbers down. “Provincial camp gave us the chance to really see what these girls can do,” said Team Alberta female coordinator, Mike Kraichy. “Making these types of decisions is never easy, but we’re confident we’ve selected a solid mix of players – who have the best chance of representing Team Alberta.” The short-listed players will compete at an elite female tournament against CIS and other provincial teams from September 23 to 25 in Regina, Saskatchewan. Following the tournament, the short-listed players will then be scouted with their club teams until Team Alberta names its final 20 player roster to compete at the 2011 National Women’s Under 18 Hockey Championships from November 2 to 6 in Saguenay, Quebec. The championships bring together the top U18 female players from across Canada. This is the final stage of the Team Alberta Female Program and one of the initial stages that Hockey Canada uses to help identify players for the national program.

General manager and coach Boris Rybalka and coach Doug Fleck will have some long sessions to determine the roster for the Friday, August 26, game against the Lloydminster Bobcats in the Edgeworth Centre beginning at 8 p.m. The Kodiaks travel to St.

Albert to face the Steel on Tuesday, August 30, in an away exhibition contest. Then the Bonnyville Pontiacs visit Camrose on Friday, September 2, for a 7 p.m. start. Camrose returns the series to Bonnyville on Saturday, September 3. The regular season opens at the Edgeworth Centre when the Canmore Eagles soar into Camrose for a Friday, September 9, game at 7:30 p.m. The same two squads play again in Camrose on

Saturday, September 10, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Golf Classic

The Camrose Kodiaks' annual golf tournament is slated for the Camrose Golf Club on Sunday, August 28. The format is an 18 hole Texas Scramble, and it is limited to the first 120 golfers. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. A dinner and social will follow at the Norsemen Inn. The deadline to enter is Fri-

day, August 26, at 4 p.m. For tickets or for further information, contact the Kodiaks' office at 780679-2603, or Ray McIsaac at 780679-8363. Moore at Michigan

The Western Michigan Broncos are ranked 16th in the NCAA after they made the playoff tournament for the first time in 15 years and reached the championship game for the first time since 1986. Veteran goaltender Jerry

Kuhn was ranked ninth in save percentage, but he has left. Goalie Nick Pisellini’s .881 mark was 14th, so the Broncos are looking for more from the men in masks. Former Camrose Kodiaks' goalie Kris Moore, who played with Salmon Arm (BCHL) last year, will be fighting for the starter's position. He had a .906 save percentage last year, but an even more impressive .921 number with Camrose

2011Jeep Wrangler Benchmark capability with all-new interior By Dan Jensen

The new Jeep Wrangler at Camrose Chrysler combines legendary, benchmark capability with an all-new interior that delivers rich styling with significantly upgraded touch surfaces, occupant comfort and versatility, and a premium appearance. "The iconic Jeep Wrangler keeps getting better," said Mike Manley, president and CEO, Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "While retaining unmatched, legendary capability, the 2011 Wrangler boasts an all-new interior that delivers a host of comfort, convenience and versatility features."

Performance

The 3.8 litre V6 engine produces 202 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 237 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual with overdrive, synchronized in all gears, and a fourspeed automatic with overdrive clutch hydraulic actuation, dual-mass flywheel system, and electronicallycontrolled converter clutch. Off road capability

Jeep Wrangler is fortified with components that give you the freedom to go anywhere, do anything. Front and rear electronic-locking differentials, standard on Rubicon, balance speed between left and right wheels, maintaining forward momentum for the ultimate in traction. An instrument panelmounted rocker switch can lock Rubicon's rear or both axles. Extra tough body-mounted sill guards are bolted directly to the frame for added body strength when sliding over rocks and boulders. They provide rocker panel and lower bodyside protection, significantly decreasing the chance of body damage. Stamped steel skid plates for fuel tank, transfer case and automatic transmission oil pan if equipped, help protect Wrangler's guts when battling boulders. With the flip of a switch the sway bar disengages when driving under 30 km/h in 4WD-low mode. This allows Rubicon's front suspension to travel up to 22 per cent further on Wrangler or 25 per cent further on Wrangler Unlimited than the respective Sport and Sahara models. Wrangler Rubicon has more than 254 mm of ground clearance, which is helped in part by its standard BF-Goodrich off road tires. Solid axles with locating arms, coil springs, track/ stabilizer bars, front steering damper and tunable monotube shock absorbers are firm at low speeds for improved feel on rocks. They also deliver a more relaxed feel at higher speeds.

Interior highlights

New 2011 Jeep Wrangler interior highlights include a redesigned instrument panel and new

rear storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials. A new lockable console and upgraded door armrest areas boast comfortable touch points, while a redesigned centre stack is easier to reach and operate. Heated power mirrors are now available, and drivers and passengers will enjoy enhanced visibility courtesy of larger rear windows. Cabin temperature control is no longer a matter of constant adjustment. The available automatic temperature control takes over and maintains your desired level of comfort. All-new steering-wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone, and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB device interface connects to storage devices (thumb drives and most MP3 players) for use with the vehicle's Media Centre, which now includes streaming Bluetooth audio. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and

a new 110-volt outlet is available to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home. In line with traditional Jeep design, hex-head bolts are utilized throughout the interior and are used to mount a "Jeep since 1941" inlay onto the new passenger grab handle. The standard Mike Cuthbert Sunrider Soft Top Camrose Chrysler features a convenient cable release that allows you to quickly let the sun shine in without having to fold back the entire top. It can also completely fold down and tuck away for full open-air freedom. A special three-ply material provides a quiet and watertight experience. The available three-piece hardtop allows open air control by separating into three easy-to-store pieces. Remove and stow one or both of the front panels for a sunroof opening of epic proportions, or remove the entire back and leave the front panels for front passenger protection from the elements. Safety

Jeep Wrangler safety features include available supplemental front seat side air bags, energyabsorbing front rail extensions, halogen headlamps, hill- side assist and electronic stability control. A vehicle-wide network of safety sensors provides instant aid when it detects you are veering off your intended path. ESC utilizes hydraulic brake assist, traction control, electronic roll mitigation, and the available trailer sway control to constantly monitor driver input against the vehicle's actual course.

You can see the 2011 Jeep Wrangler at Camrose Chrysler, on Highway 13 East. Phone 780-672-2476 or toll free 1-800-563-4202 and ask for a member of the friendly sales team.

By Dan Jensen

The Tour de l'Alberta had just over 1,000 riders. "The road was a little congested at times because of the number of cyclists but we started early enough in the morning that we didn't have to fight with the vehicles," said Ford. The only downside was a wind that blew at times at a speed of up to 40 km/h. Ford was pleased with the organization of the ride, which had five rest stops and a prepared meal at the end. "In Morinville we received a lot of encouragement and high fives

from people who were watching from the side of the road and celebrating that community's 100th anniversary," he said. "They (Morinville) gave medals to everyone who finished." Ford said if he goes in the event again next year he would wear something or put something on his bike to indicate he is raising funds for the Camrose Adult Learning Council's literacy programs. Ford sees a lot of similarities between literacy and cycling. "Literacy is a fundamental life skill which enables us to ful-

ly participate in our community, just as cycling allows us to transport ourselves to places that may otherwise be inaccessible to us," he said. "Telling stories, hearing stories and reading stories is the basis of understanding our place in the world, and is the foundation of adult literacy skills." Donations in support of Ford's Biking for Books ride may still be made at the Camrose Adult Learning Council office, 4872-50 Street, Camrose. Cheques or money orders should be made payable to Literacy Alberta, which will provide a charitable tax receipt.

Beaver County safety checkstops Submitted

The Beaver County Traffic Safety Action Network hosted a Safety Checkstop on Highway 14 near Tofield and Viking to encourage motorists to practice safe driving when approaching a stopped emergency response or tow vehicle with flashing lights. “Events like these are important to our community, especially with the hectic nature of our lives nowadays,” said Bob Young, reeve, Beaver County. “We hope the small, yet significant, reminder about the rules of the road will go a long way towards ensuring people return home safely to their families.” On site were representatives from Alberta Transportation Office of Traffic Safety, Provin-

cial RCMP / Alberta Sheriffs Integrated Traffic Unit, Alberta Health Services, Beaver Ambulance Society, Beaver County, Beaver County Victim Services, Beaver Emergency Services Commission, CN Police, Tofield / Viking RCMP, Tofield / Ryley / Beaver Family & Community Support Services. When approaching an emergency vehicle with flashing lights, motorists in the lane adjacent must slow down to 60 km per hour, or less depending on the posted speed limit. If motorists are not travelling adjacent to the emergency vehicle or are travelling in an opposite direction, they do not need to slow down. When entering a construction zone, motorists must reduce

to posted speed regardless if workers are visible or not. Failuretoslowdownforallinstancesmayresultindoublespeedfines. “With this being our second annual checkstop, we’re excited about building on the success of last year’s event. Education is a major part of saving lives on Alberta’s roads and the Beaver County Traffic Safety Action Network will continue to host traffic safety initiatives,” said Becky Oxton, Regional Traffic Safety Consultant, East Central Alberta. Driving, for many, has become second nature. By reminding drivers of simple rules to follow, Beaver County continues to help make our roads safer. For more road safety tips, visit www.saferoads.com.

PHOTO CLASSIFIED ADS

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

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.

Doug Griffiths, MLA, Battle River - Wainwright Province supports six innovative energy projects

The Government of Alberta is funding six innovative energy projects through the groundbreaking Innovative Energy Technologies Program (IETP) as part of its commitment to establish the province as a world-class centre for responsible energy development. The successful projects were submitted by Cenovus Energy, EnCana Corporation, Laracina Energy, Pengrowth Corporation, and PennWest Petroleum. The projects address a variety of research interests such as advancing production technologies to produce bitumen in reservoirs that are not yet commercial, better understanding of coalbed methane production, and expansion of new enhanced oil and gas recovery technologies into previously inaccessible oil and gas deposits. The six projects will receive royalty adjustments totalling up to $27.5 million under the fourth and fifth rounds of the IETP. This is in addition to the $134.3 million already allocated to 31 previously approved projects. For project descriptions and additional information on the IETP go to: http://www. energy.alberta.ca/Oil/docs/IETP4and5.pdf. With the successful completion of rounds four and five, the IETP is now open for another round of applications (round six). Applications will be accepted until September 30 with the expectation that successful applicants will be notified by the end of the year. Further details, including the application form can be accessed at: http://www.energy.alberta.ca/ Oil/768.asp.

County roads upgraded despite summer wet weather

By Murray Green The Camrose County public works department continues to maintain the roads as best they can after a winter of heavy snowfall and a wet spring and summer. Public works manager Graham Backus reported to council that grader operators are still battling continuing rain, which is making for tough roads and flooding issues. "When weather has allowed, construction has been proceeding. Lots of rain in July has continued to slow the projects," said Graham. Councillors have fielded a number of calls about fixing some of the roads. "We have hundreds of soft spots that we have been fixing when possible," said Graham. "Trucks with dual wheels really cut into the roads. I can't force the oil companies to fix the roads because they are within the amount of traffic allowed." Reeve Don Gregorwich added, "If we lower the usage any more, then it affects the agricultural industry." It was suggested by councillor Trevor Miller that a data base be compiled so that some of them could be fixed with future budget considerations. Reeve Don added that fixing a portion of the road is still cheaper than rebuilding the entire road. On July 20, it was noticed that the Kingman Lagoon storage cell had lowered significantly. "Upon inspection it was discovered that the release valve was left open. The valve was immediately closed, which stopped the unauthorized release. A report to Alberta Environment was made for the unauthorized release as per the Code of Practice. We have not heard back from Alberta Environment regarding our report." Graham is investigating the Ervick Water Agreement with Bittern Lake. "There is a farm along the line that is hooked up to the water, which is located prior to the Ervick meter building. It appears that Bittern Lake has been paying for the water consumption of this farm, while we have been collecting the invoices and not forwarding on any payment to Bittern Lake," county administrator Steve Gerlitz said. "Once all the details and volumes are determined, a recommendation to administration and council will be brought forward." No date from Border Paving was received regarding the paving of trails and parking at the Camrose County Nature Conservation Area and the paving at Round Hill.

City looks for advisory committee members By Dan Jensen

What drives you? That's the question the City of Camrose is asking as it looks for members of the new Community Transportation Committee. "It is vital to have input from the community when addressing the issue of community transportation," said City councillor Brandon Blatz, who has already been appointed to the committee along with councillor Earle Berry. The committee's mandate will be to identify specific affordable transportation needs, explore possible models and or strategies and initiatives that would be conducive to providing accessible, reliable and affordable community transportation services, devise an incremental service model for community transportation that begins by addressing the acute, affordable mobility needs of residents, and present a recommendation to City council not later than June 30, 2012. "We want to put a framework in place and start by focusing on serving those who are in the greatest need," said councillor Blatz. "We can then build on that based on the need, demand and use of the service. If we can have a successful start and a smaller start, we can build the service into something that is bigger." One of the things at which the committee will be taking a close look is whether it would be more financially prudent to have a public system in which the City pays for operations and capital equipment, or one that is privately operated. As it stands now, either would be better than the current limited system of Handivan and taxis, where some seniors who are on limited incomes wind up paying $20 or more for a trip to the doctor and blood work. That is not, according to Blatz, an acceptable option, considering the City of Camrose mission statement is to provide exceptional quality of life for all residents. "We want to come up with a made in Camrose sort of service model," said Blatz. "We have a lot of resources to draw on that have already been created so we don't need to hire any consultants." Along with two members of City council, the committee will be comprised of up to three members representing or acting on behalf of local social or special interest groups, and up to four members of the public at large. "Having four members of the public will give us a diverse range of opinion and viewpoint," said Blatz. "If we had representation from only community organizations the results would be the same as they always seem to be." Anyone wishing to serve on the committee must be 18 years of age or older and a Camrosian. "You don't need a degree or years of experience to sit on any City of Camrose committee," said Blatz. "If it is something that interests you, something that you find intriguing or something you think you can contribute to, you are qualified. Those are the kind of people we really need to hear from, and I am hoping we can get a nice diverse group of members." To obtain an application form, visit www.camrose.ca or contact City Hall at 780-672-4426.

Leonard “Larry” Erick Larry was born on May 25, 1945, to Katherine and Casper Erick in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. He left home at an early age and worked various jobs until he found his niche in the coiled tubing industry. His strong work ethic made him a pioneer in this field and also provided well for his family. Larry and Lois were married in 1972 and made their home in Alberta. Many years were spent in Medicine Hat and, in 1998, they moved to Camrose where he spent the remainder of his life. His greatest pastimes were camping, boating, his woodshop and being the boss of the remote. Larry always thought his greatest achievement was his family. There was not a prouder father or grandfather to be had in the hockey rink, dance studio, or school gym when “his kids” were there. He will always be remembered by family and friends as the one to go to in a time of need. Larry had broad shoulders and a big heart, and they were used by us all. Sadly on August 7, 2011, his loving heart grew too big for his chest. Larry was predeceased by his parents Casper and Katherine Erick; four siblings; many in-laws, nephews, nieces and friends. He leaves to mourn his doting wife Lois; two daughters Lonnie (Jon) Naylor, and Kathy (Randy) Teel; two sons Brad (Petria) Erick, and Shawn (Carol) Erick; four brothers; five sisters; 10 grandchildren; and many in-laws, nephews, nieces, and friends. Funeral services were held on Friday, August 12, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. from Messiah Lutheran Church with Father Jacques Vaillancourt officiating. Interment followed in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose.

CAMROSE & DAYSLAND

Lauretta May Falkeid It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of a wonderful mother, cherished grandmother, and respected family and community member, on Friday, August 12, 2011, with the passing of Lauretta M. Falkeid. Lauretta Mae Falkeid was born on February 3, 1922, at Medicine Hat, Alberta. She was the third child of Raymond and Clara (Lockrem) Brager who resided on a farm east of Camrose, Alberta, in the Parkland District. Lauretta attended the rural Hartland School and later Camrose Lutheran College. After having worked at several stores in Camrose, she married Odin J. Falkeid on December 27, 1950, at Parkland Lutheran Church. They resided on the family farm in the Allied District north of Bawlf, Alberta. The farm was a source of pride and joy for both of them and they raised three children there: Neil, Beverly and Sandra. Lauretta was an active member of the Bawlf Lutheran Church and the Ladies’ Aid Association during her years on the farm. As a couple, Lauretta and Odin also enjoyed traveling and camping, along with participating in several escorted bus tours through much of Canada and the USA. During retirement from farming, Lauretta organized and helped with family reunions for both the Lockrem and Brager families which still continue. She was a talented seamstress and enjoyed handicrafts of all types, along with baking family favorites. In 1992, due to Odin’s illness, they moved to Camrose, but maintained contact with the Bawlf area and the farm. Lauretta was predeceased by Odin in 1994; her parents Clara in 1972 and Raymond in 1992; her brother Ronald Brager; sistersin-law Edith (Falkeid) Bronson and Helen (McNabb) Brager; and brother-in-law Harold Bronson. She is survived by her family, Neil (Suzanne) of Calgary, Beverly of Calgary and Sandra (Dave) Domes of Camrose. Much of her retirement years, both in Camrose and on the farm, centered on her five grandchildren who were sources of happiness and pride for her – Brooke (Ryan) Bachmeier; Kyle, Craig and Shyla Domes; and Ryan Curry. She is also survived by one sister Muriel (Conrad) Gunderson of Camrose; and one brother, Harley Brager of Red Deer. Lauretta also leaves to mourn several nieces and nephews, as well as numerous cousins, both in Canada and the USA. Funeral services will be held at Bawlf Lutheran Church on Thursday, August 18, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. with Rev. Bill Harder officiating. Interment will follow in Bawlf Lutheran Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Lauretta’s memory may be made to Parkland Church Preservation Society, or to the charity of one’s choice.

“Our family serving your family since 1906”

Experience and Expertise Estate Planning Patricia Ellen Halbert

Daryl Roy Phillips

Betty Lou McDermott

Pat spent her entire life serving God, her family, her friends and society, in one form or another. Born to the Rev. S. E. McKegney and his wife Ellen in Clinton, Ontario, she grew up and matured in a time of great social change. They moved often, following the needs of her father’s ministry – first, southern Ontario, then England, Ulster and finally Southern Ireland. The family included an older sister, Mary Kathleen (Molly) and a younger brother, Bill. Pat spent the war years working at Oxford University with Dr. Howard Florey, developing penicillin as an antibiotic. Although living in England during World War II was trying, she carried on a courtship with a young man she had met in Ireland, Edward Peard. In April of 1947, they married. Shortly after their wedding, they immigrated to Canada, first living in Ontario, and then when Ted joined the RCAF in 1951, they moved to Montreal. Here they adopted Douglas in 1955, and Patrick in 1958. Job postings took them to Europe in 1959, Newfoundland in 1963, and finally to Alberta in 1966. A lot of time was spent touring around the countryside, exploring castles, parks and just enjoying the local culture. Mom greeted middle age with grace in Alberta. Here was almost everything she loved – her family, her career with the Girl Guides, and the striking mountain scenery. A major challenge came in 1983, when Ted was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer. Through two years of chemotherapy, she watched him struggle and eventually succumb to his illness in 1985. In 1989, she found new love and married Alex Halbert. Although they led a peaceful and happy life in Ferintosh, they did several international trips and a lot of touring in Western Canada. Last January, she and Alex celebrated 22 wonderful years of married life together. Funeral services were held on Monday, August 15, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. from St. Andrew’s Anglican Chuch with Father Jacques Vaillancourt officiating. Interment followed in Highland Park Cemetery. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce that Daryl passed away on August 5, 2011, at Pigeon Lake, at the age of 58. A loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather, he leaves to cherish his memory his best friend and wife of 37 years, Ruth; daughters Erin Smith (Chad) of Revelstoke and Stacy Lofgren (Shawn) of Camrose; his granddaughters Evan and Ember, Hannah and Kara; his mother Kathleen; brother Doug (Judy); sister Donna Currie (Kevin); as well as numerous relatives and friends. Daryl was predeceased by his son Steven, his father Roy, and his brother Clifford. Daryl loved the outdoors and took every opportunity for adventure, living out the saying, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” As a family, they made many special memories: camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, traveling and being at the lake, which was their favourite place. He was a great cook and host, and there was always room for whoever showed up! Daryl loved sailing and he also found peace in his yearly solo trips to the mountains. Daryl was involved in the Camrose Ski Club for many years and was one of the founders of Biathlon Alberta. Biathlon continued to be a major part of his life as his kids began competing and his role changed from organizer to coach for the next several years. His greatest treasures were his four beautiful granddaughters who were the sunshine of his life. They brought him so much joy and laughter! Daryl was easy-going and spontaneous, kind and compassionate, positive and patient, strong and wise – a man of his word. He spent his last summer at the cabin watching his little girls enjoy the place he loved so much. He will be dearly missed, but we are comforted to know he is reunited with Stevie. We thank Bev Swanson at Messiah and Rev. David Eriksson for walking with us through this journey with such love and sensitivity. Also thanks to Dr. Fenton at the Cross, Dr. Hilderman and Dr. Slabbert, and the kindnesses shown to us by Camrose Home Care, Pharmasave, Weber Funeral Home, and all those who visited, babysat, called, brought food, flowers, cards, and so many other expressions of support. Words cannot express how touched we are. It is so deeply appreciated. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Daryl Phillips Biathlon Scholarship at U of A, Augustana Campus.

Betty Lou was born on December 3, 1941, at High River Hospital. She was the fourth child of Mary and Richard Brockway. Betty was raised on a farm 1-1/2 miles south of Cayley. She took all of her schooling in Cayley. She went to nurses’ training at the Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary in 1960, and graduated in 1963. She came to St. Mary’s Hospital right after her training and worked there until she retired in 1993. Many of her longest and dearest friends are staff she worked with there. After retirement, she found her next love, spoiling her grandchildren – sending them off to school, doing crafts, baking and having tea parties. She filled the rest of her time quilting and gardening. She is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Bernie; two sons Darren (Theresa) and Rich ( Denise); three grandchildren Melissa, Ryan and Ally; and one sister Marie (Barry) Barkley. She was predeceased by her parents, her brother Irvin, and infant brother Calvin. She passed away peacefully on August 7, 2011, surrounded by her family after a courageous journey. She will be dearly missed. Funeral services were held on Thursday, August 11, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. from Camrose United Church with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Cremation has taken place. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Alberta Lung Association, The Arthritis Society, or the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.
