each year are the wonderful planters which adorn Main Street and the balance of the downtown core. The unsung hero of the planter project – twenty years ago when the first planters were erected, every year since and throughout this growing season is Paul Pedersen. Though he’s likely too humble to admit it, the local florist and life-long green thumb is estimated to volunteer at least 15 hours of time weekly to tend to the ninety planters strategically placed in City Center Camrose. Notes fellow C.C.C. business owner Audrey Pfanmuller, "Paul is very much the key to the success of this project. He does everything: ordering the flowers we plant each spring, making decisions on color coordination, constantly being on the lookout for weeds, checking and changing the soil and inspiring us to help in small ways. We count on Paul. Without his effort and dedication to the planters we’d be in really big trouble! The reality is we’d have to hire someone to do the work he now does out of the goodness of his heart and his love of Camrose." On behalf of the community and the visitors who come to our City, The Camrose Booster takes this opportunity to publicly thank Paul Pedersen (and his team of volunteers) for continuing to make Camrose, Simply Irresistible!

Armena Community Market Sept. 5 By Dan Jensen

There's nothing quite like a vegetable fresh from the garden, a quilt or loaf of bread that has been made by hand, or a chicken that has never seen the inside of a freezer. If those are things that appeal to you, you'll want to

attend the first-ever Armena Community Market Monday, Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It's "a diverse market full of food and products made or grown by Armena or Armena connected people," said a posting on Facebook. Matthew Stinson, an Arme-

na resident, said the Armena Community Market is a chance not only to promote environmental awareness by highlighting those who are making or growing their own products, but also to bring the Armena community together. "It is a w ay for those who are living in the town to get to know those who are living on the acreages," he said. Along with the products being sold, the market will feature musical entertainment, face painting and activities for the kids, and a concession with home-made door prizes. "There's going to be a good selection of entertainers," said Stinson. There will also be a ma ze set up using hay bays that kids will be able to explore. More information about the Armena Community Market is available from Mardell Olson at 780-672-8057 or Joanna Stinson at 780-672-5399. To register a table, contact Donna Lyseng at 780-672-6114.

Farmers want to keep Wheat Board strong By Murray Green

Eliminating the Canadian Wheat Board as a si ngle desk seller of wheat and barley could provide a d eadly blow to the majority of family farms in Western Canada. It will switch the power from Canadian farmers to mega corporations. It could also speed up the reduction of smaller family farms. Agriculture producers made their views known, some in anger, on the future of the Canadian Wheat Board at a p ublic information meeting held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on August 16. Each meeting in Western Canada has drawn between 300 and 500 CWB members in a series of rallies against Ottawa's plan to end the board's marketing monopoly. The board is a lso holding a plebiscite on the issue, but federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has indicated he plans to ignore the results, even though prairie farmers backed the Conservatives in the last election. "MP Ritz met with the chairman and CEO to advise the CWB to come up with another plan because the single desk system will be eliminated," said CWB board member Bill Woods. "He said a new model without a single desk system must be in place." He doesn't have a plan, good or bad. MP Ritz wants to end single desk selling to give more power to huge grain companies and foreign markets. The legislation is expected to be introduced in the House of Commons this fall. The single desk system has worked well for farmers over the past 69 years. "We negotiate 4,000 sales contracts to 300 customers in about 70 countries each year," said Gord Flaten, CWB vice-president of marketing and sales. "I would summarize it to three points. We use the single desk to market strategically, negotiate better services and to work on pricing to different buyers." CWB fills the market demand when the grain prices rise. "In an open market system, all orders have to be filled and sometimes the prices are lower," explained Gord. "Last year we waited until after the harvest

to sell. We let the United States fill the orders right away and we waited until the new year when the prices went up and our members made more money. Some countries are willing to pay more for prime Canadian products." The United States, Japan and Venezuela are the top three buyers. However, Japan is willing to pay the highest amount per ton. "If we switched to an open market, it would drive the price down because everyone would want to sell to Japan instead of spreading the products to all markets," said Gord. The CWB is not only about marketing, it oversees the allocation of grain cars and that includes producer cars and those from the short line railways, including the local Battle River Railway from Kelsey to Alliance. Currently, the CWB handles the grain car allocation. The agricultural minister has no idea who will take over that responsibility. The world’s top agricultural commodities traders are eager to tap into the lucrative Canadian grain market. Canada is one of the largest markets globally. The CWB started in 1942

and has saved Canada from being run by companies from the United States. Without a C WB, large companies such as Cargill (United States), Archer Daniels Midland (United States), Bunge (Netherlands), Louis Dreyfus (France) and Glencore (Switzerland) will buy grain directly from Canadian farmers and will control the prices. The CWB returns all profits to farmers, which amounts to between $4 and $7 billion a year. It had sales of $5.1 billion last year. "The federal government wants to introduce legislation this fall to end the monopoly by August 2012," said Allen Oberg, chair of the CWB. "The CWB has set up a plebiscite and hired lawyers to stop the move to an open market system." The CWB is t he world’s biggest trader of wheat. That's why private enterprise wants to grab the farmers' money and run. The CWB has mailed ballots to 68,000 farmers across the prairies asking whether they want to maintain CWB, or to sell through commercial traders. The results of the plebiscite are due on September 9. The vote could unite Canadian farmers

but, lawmakers and MP Ritz could still ignore it. The board is trying hard to dismiss the message that a dual system can work. "A dual system in not an option. It is simply not possible. Australia tried it, and it didn't work. It will turn into an open market system quickly," said chairman Allen. "The CWB doesn't have a g rain handling infrastructure of its own, and no capital base for borrowing or financing operations. We are not a grain company." The plebiscite asks farmers whether they want to maintain the ability to market all wheat and barley through the CWB single desk system or remove it and sell all grain through an open market system. "Who will step up and fight for higher prices if the CWB is go ne?" asked Allen. "You will have less choices and less freedom." This is n ot just a f ederal matter. "We support the CWB because it has a positive role," said Alberta NDP candidate Rachel Notley. "I remind everyone that the provincial government has a role to play in the decision. Contact your provincial

government and let your views be known. The CWB makes decisions in the best interest of farmers." Farmers are facing an uncertain future. "This is because we have a short time frame to make changes," said Allen. "There are some things we know for sure. The CWB will cease to exit if legislation passes. We (CWB) will not survive for long. Our single desk powers will be lost." It is important for farmers to vote. "If members want to keep the single desk system, we will listen to them. We will do all in our power to fight for you," concluded Allen. 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 c ompany must have a c onfirmed 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.

Highway 13/21 roundabout could come next year By Dan Jensen

A roundabout at the intersection of Highways 13 and 21 could be built as early as next year. "Alberta Transportation has asked us to put the tendering package together," said Sheldon Hudson, vice president of Al-Terra Engineering during an open house on the proposed intersection improvements at the Norsemen Inn Aug. 16. "We're hoping for construction next year but that is controlled by Alberta Transportation." The one-lane roundabout has been designed by Al-Terra Engineering in cooperation with Ourston Roundabouts Canada. The estimated cost of the roundabout is $3 million. A 2009 study conducted by

Ourston Roundabouts for the provincial government indicated that Highway 13 and 21 intersection safety would improve when the signals were converted to roundabout traffic control. Studies have indicated that roundabouts, which are different from traffic circles, result in a 90 per cent reduction in fatalities over signalized intersections, an 80 per cent reduction in injuries and a 4 0 per cent reduction in the total number of crashes.' "The main reason for the reduction of fatalities or injuries is the fact that you are dealing with a lower speed," said Hudson. "With a reg ular intersection, whether it is s top controls or signals, you have the chance of that t-bone collision that could potentially be at a high speed and cause a fa tality or injury.

With roundabouts you are dealing with low speed accidents – more likely fender benders." The open house was one of the first chances Camrose and area residents have had to see the proposed plans and ask questions. "We received quite a f ew suggestions," said Hudson. "It was a constructive meeting and the comments were good. We like to hear the concerns so w e can explain what we are doing and see if there is something we haven't looked at." One of the questions was whether the two lanes on the north side of the roundabout could be extended past the railway tracks all the way to the Highway 21 passing lane. Other questions concerned whether large trucks would

block visibility at the roundabouts, the possibility of building an overpass, and whether the roundabout would be large enough to accommodate supersized loads. "Right now this roundabout will accommodate the largest legally available truck that could travel on any road in Alberta," said Hudson. "The permitted trucks will not be able to go through so Alberta Transportation has asked us to take a look at what adjustments could be made to accommodate them as well." Alberta Transportation notes on its website that roundabouts in Alberta have truck aprons around the centre island that provides extra room for semis and multiple-trailer trucks. It notes too that the rear

wheels of large trucks can drive across the truck apron thanks to its flat curb and gradual slope, allowing long vehicles to make wide-turning movements. Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson said at the open house he is happy to see some action is b eing taken on the intersection. "I am happy that Alberta Transportation is paying attention to some of the concerns in our constituency. Ever since I have lived in Camrose, which is all my life, I have known the Highway 13 and 21 intersection to be a dangerous intersection." Olson added it was interesting for him to hear at the open house the comments of his constituents and chat with them about their concerns. Continued on page 5

McLean unveils new book By Dan Jensen

What do you do when the never-ending rain seems destined to keep you from enjoying the outdoors. For former Camrose Composite High School teacher and vice principal Robert McLean, there's just one answer. Start writing! McLean, who now lives at Campbell River, Vancouver Island, has just completed his second book, Oilman (Trafford Publishing, publisher), a s tory about a 17-year-old boy who quits school in 1948 to work in the oilpatch at Leduc. "Most of the book is ba sed on things that really happened when I w orked in the oilpatch while putting myself through university," said McLean. "I've changed the names to protect the guilty." McLean worked on Oilman for three years before he was finally satisfied with the end result. He feels it has everything the reader could want: intrigue, romance and action. Oilman is available in all the major bookstores and several libraries. "There were several libraries that purchased my book when I was through Alberta recently, including the ones in Camrose, Edmonton and Calgary," said McLean. "I had over 200 copies printed and most of them have been picked up." Oilman, along with its predecessor, Blow Out, has drawn a bit of interest from film producers, thanks to the promotional efforts of Camrose Regional Exhibition general manager Wynn McLean (no relative). Some of the strongest praise for Oilman has come from the Writers' Guild of Alberta, of which McLean is a member. "The author is a very good story teller and his characters are well developed," said a g uild statement on the book's back cover. I agree completely that Oilman is a rollicking good read. It is well told, the pace is excellent, and the reader's attention is held from the beginning to end. The author excels in descriptive text." McLean worked at Camrose Composite High School from 1966 to 1986. He was the school's vice principal for fifteen of those years.

"I think there is healthy skepticism about the idea of a roundabout and I k now that was my immediate reaction, too, when I f irst heard about it a w hile back, but as I h ave thought about it and listened to the presentations, I c an see there is some common sense involved," he said. "There is no guarantee that you won't have collisions in a roundabout but they will tend to be the more glancing type of collisions rather than the super violent head-ons or t-bones. "That, alone, I t hink is a compelling argument in favour."

Olson feels the cost of building an overpass at the Highway 13 and 21 intersection is too prohibitive at this time, but that safety along Highway 21 could be improved with the construction of more passing lanes. "There are some things that can be done short of twinning and one of them is t he addition of more passing lanes," he said. "I have had people coming to me to talk about their frustrations with Highway 21 since I was first elected."

Gabrielle Blatz (centre) and Shayla Rae Blatz (right), from About Time Productions, turned heads of shoppers at Duggan Mall Aug. 6 in a flash mob demonstration. About Time Productions was inspired by the You Tube "Frozen Flash Mob" done at Grand Central Station and thought that it would be cool to do in Camrose. There were over 25 people, ages 6 to 40 plus who at the precise moment of 10:00 a.m. froze in place for three minutes. Afterwards everyone simply went their way. This was also tied into About Time Productions having a table at the Farmers' Market to promote its classes. Registration will be held in the Community Centre Sept. 7.

BATTLE RIVER SCHOOL DIVISION #31 SCHOOL OPENING INFORMATION 2011-12 SCHOOL YEAR

Our Mission The Battle River School Division, in partnership with parents and the community, will ensure that each student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills, and core values to be a caring, productive member of our democratic society.

SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE

SCHOOL YEAR CALENDAR

On behalf of the teachers, administrators, and support staff, I would like to welcome each and every student to Battle River School Division for the 2010-2011 school year. This year staff will continue to strive to achieve our vision: Every Student, Every Day, A Success by providing a holistic educational experience focused on the academic, character, and relationship development of each student. As a school division, we will emphasize the following priorities for the coming year: • Literacy • Assessment • 21st century learning • Creating Welcoming and Inviting school environments This year promises to be an exciting and challenging time. We anticipate that it will bring many rewards and successes for each student in Battle River School Division. Dr. Larry Payne, Superintendent of Schools

LEARNING INSTITUTE Schools, Division Office, and most worksites in Battle River School Division #31 will be closed on August 30 and 31, 2011 to permit all staff to attend a Learning Institute. New Registrations Students new to Battle River School Division #31 should register at the school they will be attending and provide a birth certificate when registering. Busing Service Students residing in the Beaver County, Camrose County and Flagstaff County Students new to these areas should register for bus service by calling the Transportation Department at 780-672-6131, or 1-800-262-4869, well in advance of school opening so that efficient routes can be planned. Students who were transported to a Division-operated school by bus during the last school year will be included in plans for the 2011-2012 school year. Any questions regarding attendance areas and/or eligibility for busing should be directed to the Director of Transportation. Students residing in the City of Camrose Transportation will be provided for students within the City of Camrose on the following basis: • Eligible students (those who live further than 2.4 kilometers from their designated school), will be served first at no cost; those students who were registered in the Battle River Regional Division school last year and were eligible for busing will be planned for again this year. Reminder: students will be expected to produce their bus passes upon entering the bus. • Non-eligible students (those who live closer than 2.4 kilometers from their designated school) will be served next, on a first-come, first-served basis, for an annual fee of $325.00 per student in grades 1-12, or $292.50 per ECS student. Registration for busing of noneligible students will be confirmed upon receipt of the applicable fee. Reminder: students will be expected to produce their bus passes upon entering the bus. The first day of busing for City of Camrose schools will be Thursday, September 1, 2011 and the first day of regular route busing for the ECS students will be Wednesday, September 7, 2011. Battle River School Division #31 will be accepting registrations for busing in the City of Camrose from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon and 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. during the week of August 15-19, 2011 at the following address: 5402-48A Avenue, Camrose. Any questions regarding attendance areas and/or eligibility for busing should be directed to the Assistant Director of Transportation.

Due to longer instructional days, most “Feeder Schools” have additional ‘feeder days’ on which students will not be in attendance. The Holden, Ryley, Allan Johnstone and Lougheed Schools, as well as Cornerstone Christian Academy, are operating with a four-day week. Principals at “Feeder Schools” and at the four-day week schools will likely distribute a slightly modified school year calendar for their students.

Alberta and Canada sign new contract for RCMP The governments of Alberta and Canada have agreed to a new 20-year contract that will see the RCMP continue as Alberta’s provincial police force to March 31, 2032. “This is wonderful news for the province and for Albertans,” said Premier Ed Stelmach. “This agreement makes good financial sense for Alberta and strengthens a valuable relationship with a partner who continues to play a key role after more than a century keeping Alberta communities safe. I w ould like to thank everyone involved in ironing out this deal to keep the RCMP in Alberta, which has been a p riority for our government.” “Today is a significant milestone for RCMP contract policing,” said Canada’s Public Safety Minister, Vic Toews. “I am very pleased to announce that after almost four years of negotiations, the Government of Canada and the Province of Alberta have reached an agreement that will continue the relationship between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the people of Alberta for the next two decades. The terms of the agreement reached with Alberta represent excellent value to Canadians and are available to all contract provinces and territories.” “This new agreement is a critical step forward for both Alberta and the RCMP,” said Frank Oberle, Solicitor General and Minister of Public Security. “It establishes a m odern relationship built on consultation, respect for each other’s roles and responsibilities, and an understanding of each other’s needs. RCMP contract policing has been an effective model across Canada for many years, and this renewed relationship will help us address the rapidly evolving, cross-jurisdictional nature of crime.” Under the agreement, the current cost-sharing between Alberta, at 70 per cent, and Canada, at 30 per cent, is maintained, and the Government of Canada has approval to enter into arrangements with Alberta municipalities for the RCMP to provide local policing. I n addition, Alberta will set the objectives, priorities and goals of the RCMP in the province, and added emphasis will be given to information sharing, planning, and reporting. Forty-three municipalities with populations of more than 5,000 will contract directly with Canada for local policing. The RCMP also provides policing to all municipal districts and counties and Métis settlements regardless of population; to towns, villages and summer villages with populations under 5,000; and to First Nations communities where other policing arrangements have not been made.

Deborah Morgan showing improvement By Dan Jensen

It's the small things that are bringing joy to Deborah Morgan these days. "I'm excited that I a m able to open my left hand," said the Camrose resident. "I don't have to pry on my fingers anymore to get my hand open." For someone who is a w riter by trade, that's a big deal. "I was able to do a bit of typing this morning, something I haven't been able to do for some time," said Morgan. "I didn't think I w ould remember how, but it is sort of like riding a bike. Once you learn how you never forget." Morgan has noticed improvements in other areas as well. "My feet are back t o being pink whereas before they were purple and hurt, I a m able to sing, something I h aven't been able to do for a couple of years, and I have better energy. "I don't get as tired as I used to." Morgan began noticing the improvements almost immediately after undergoing surgery in Costa Mesa, California,

August 11, to open veins that had been restricting the flow of blood throughout her body. It's a surgery that has become popular with thousands of Canadians, who have been fighting with the debilitating effects of multiple sclerosis. "I felt it was time," said Morgan, who has had multiple sclerosis since 1984, the year she moved to Camrose. The surgery (cerebralspinal venus insufficiency treatment) was performed by Synergy Health Concepts after a MRI indicated that both of Morgan's jugular veins were blocked. "Synergy Health Concepts have done more of these operations than anybody else in North America. "When the doctor came by for his post-operative visit with me at 1 in the afternoon he told me he had done nine surgeries that morning, all of them for Canadians." While the surgery is n ot a cure for multiple sclerosis, it can, depending on the person who receives it, have long lasting effects. "The company that does this has a very good record of people

staying, or not going backwards or losing what they have gained," said Martin. "They told me they have a five to ten per cent restenosis rate, where the blood vessels get restricted again." Martin admits she was nervous about having the surgery after hearing about a C algary woman who died after having the same procedure due to reaction with the blood thinner. "I was filling our forms that explained what could happen and I s tarted to cry and wonder whether I c ould do this or not," said Morgan. "I have a new grandchild coming in a month and my son is getting married in six weeks, and I d idn't want to miss any of those things." Hoping to ease her mind, Morgan phoned her son, Josh, who reminded her of all she had done to get to the point she was at. "After talking with Josh and then the doctor I knew it was the right thing to do," she said. "I knew that I had to believe that the doctor knew what he was doing." Morgan is grateful to the

many Camrose and area residents who have supported her emotionally and financially. "I sent emails to many people who were at my fund-raiser giving them updates on what was happening while I was in Costa Mesa and they in turn sent messages of encouragement back to me," she said. "It made me feel that everyone came with me on my journey, and that I w asn't alone." The Canadian government has put $5 million dollars into studies about the treatment but has not started any clinical trials, despite pressures from those who want it done. Until it does, those who have MS will continue to do as Morgan did and travel to other countries where it is allowed. "I really hope it comes to Canada soon or that Canada approves it soon because it is quite hard for some people who have MS to travel," said Morgan. "I think it would be wonderful to have the option of having the treatment once or twice a y ear locally and not having to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on drug prescription costs."

Railway Station closes one week earlier Submitted

Lack in funding forced the Camrose Railway Station to close its doors for the season Aug. 20. “Our summer student programs are finished the middle of August,” explains long time volunteer Glenys Smith. The Station normally finds funds to keep one student on the last two weeks of August but was not able to manage that this year.

The Station Café, the museum's restaurant doesn’t derive the income it used to, and with its operation being reliant upon volunteers it makes for a very labor intensive area. It was once open three days per week, then one day a week and currently one day a week during July and August only. “It’s a shame because people love to come here for lunch, we have inquiries about it every day,

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Prevention preferable to fixing problems Several of last week’s news stories made me think that we, as a society, spend a lot of time and money trying to fix problems that could have been prevented. One of the stories is about the drought crisis in the Horn of Africa countries, where tens of thousands of children have already died of starvation and water-borne diseases, and millions of people are short of food. To the collective credit of the world’s people, much aid has been sent to relieve the suffering. The saddest part of the story is that, despite the drought, we are told that the famine did not have to happen. In their regular column in the Edmonton Journal last week, Marc and Craig Keilburger* quoted Willy Cheres who said, “If everyone in Kenya had a borehole, there would be no hunger.” Cheres learned about boreholes as a source of water during a policing career in Nairobi and was successful in getting support to drill in an area where no rain falls. The resulting 200-metre-deep borehole took three days to drill and produces 25,000 litres of water per hour for five kiosks that support three schools and a m edical clinic, and will sustain about 12,000 people for three generations.” Yes, three generations is correct, providing the population with clean water and green gardens thus eliminating, or at least reducing, death from disease and lack of food. Providing immediate aid for the presently starving is a must, however, the long term benefits are only minimal unless we also use our resources, knowledge and skills to take preventive measures to eliminate recurring famine crises. Obviously, prevention is the most efficient and effective way to go. May we have the foresight and wisdom to do so. Another headline story last week concerned the high number of homicides in Edmonton, 33 so far in 2011 compared to three in Calgary over the same period. Edmonton’s Police Service Chief Knecht says the first steps EPS will take to curb the rate will focus on control of knives, machetes and swords as they have been the most commonly used weapons in the murders. Controlling knives is d esirable but is a kin to the reactive need to feed starving people before they die. However, how much wiser it would have been to have taken preventive measures first in order to reduce underlying causes of murder such as the misuse of alcohol, drugs, disparity and hopelessness as well as various other social conditions. To his credit, Edmonton’s Chief of Police has acknowledged the need to identify causes before effective preventive measures can be determined. He plans to direct his resources towards those ends. A third attention-grabbing TV news story last week developed from the words of one of the world’s wealthiest billionaires, Warren Buffet. He advocated making ultra-wealthy people like himself pay more taxes. His remarks were directed to the U.S. government when he said, “My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress.” He noted that ten to twenty years ago he was taxed at a higher rate than he is now and last year he was taxed at what he called a “measly 17.4 per cent” while the average paid by his employees was twice that rate. He was vociferous in stating that if the U.S. government is to recover from its massive deficit it must cut spending and introduce tax reform. “It’s time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice,” he said. In all three stories, it is o bvious that prevention would have been preferable to having to react to crises. May they be lessons to guide us as we foresee crises ahead if we fail to be better stewards of our resources and environment, and fail to learn to live in peace and harmony with one another – even if we are different. * The Keilburger brothers are founders of Free the Children and Craig was the 2011 recipient of an honorary doctoral degree from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus

even during the winter,” shared Glenys. The season has been successful for the museum. It has hosted many festivals and special events, hosted school programs daily from April to June, has been visited by many children’s summer programs and day camps, has h osted bus loads of people coming from Edmonton to enjoy the gardens, had a m emorable interview

from magazine Gardens West, celebrated a centennial birthday, played a l eading role in the annual Camrose Founders Days Festival and received visits from people from all over the world. The interview with Gardens West, while bringing Camrose national and international attention, created challenges. “We were honored,” exclaims Glenys, “but the weather didn’t

cooperate; we had so much rain it was hard to keep the gardens weeded and deadheaded, blooms were late, then we got hail that was extremely damaging.” Fortunately, Mother Nature recovers. The gardens now are full of magnificent flowers. The spectacular gardens are always open for the public to enjoy, but the museum will be open by appointment only.

BRCF supports family literacy The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $1,000 to Camrose Family Literacy to purchase children's books. The grant, made possible through the generous support of Anthony Hladun and Deanne Morrow, will be used to purchase books for families involved in Camrose Family Literacy programs under Alberta Advanced Education. Camrose Family Literacy provides programs for parents and caregivers of children up to five years of age who are socially and economically disadvantaged. Many families have no access to quality children's books, especially those that they can keep and use regularly. Camrose Family Literacy expects 60 families will directly benefit from this program. The program allows for daily reading with children. Literacy increases by frequent exposure and repetition of reading, language and books. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects such as this in East Central Alberta which strengthen local communities and have a positive impact on the future.

Battle River Community Foundation secretary Dana Andreassen presents a cheque for $1,000 to Camrose Family Literacy program coordinator Sharilyn Cook.

Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of donors and organizations who have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds is kept intact and the income is used to support local charitable projects. Some grant funding is also made avail-

able by generous donors such as Anthony and Deanne, who make annual flow-through gifts to the Battle River Community Foundation. Since its inception in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1,000,000 to support important local initiatives.

Letters to t hird parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit f or clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Dear Editor: I read with interest the article about Deborah Morgan and her problems with stores on main street. I have had the same concerns for several years and on May 20, 2010, I w rote a letter to the City regarding the same, with copy to the Chamber of Commerce. In the letter, I o utlined some of the improvements that could make shopping much better for handicapped people. One problem was the step-up to some stores, which some of us are

incapable of handling. At t hat time the City was asking how they could spend the remaining Main Street improvement money that they ha d, and I suggested they look at the problems that Deborah mentioned. I must say though, the mention about doors opening inward is against fire regulations. If there was a fire with the doors opening in, people could easily get trapped. I c an see her point, though, when she is in a wheelchair. Another problem, of course, is handicap parking on main street is v irtually non-existent – mostly it is on the side streets. Consider the problem if you are a h andicapped driver. For myself, I have to have the door fully open, however, parking on side streets means you open your door to oncoming traffic, and this to my mind is really unsafe. One suggestion would be handicap parking on either side of crosswalks. This also cuts down walking time to access stores, as walking can be a problem.

Since I d id not get a re ply from the City, I waited until we had the election, then wrote to a new young councillor about my concerns. The letter was sent to him on December 19, 2010. To date, no reply, so again I must assume that there is no interest in helping the large number of citizens who have some problems but still enjoy shopping. Many have lived here all their lives and have been loyal local shoppers, but now are forced to shop elsewhere rather than downtown. I am 83 years old, have had two hip replacements, and now am waiting for knee surgery so you can see my complaints are legitimate. I do hope that the City and merchants can come up with a solution by putting in a step or two, even a b ar on the side of the store to grab onto to help us get up the toobig step. Even though we are elderly we still want to shop downtown. Alice Lowis, Camrose

These valued employees are indicative of the kind of qualified and caring employee store owner Rob Hauser looks for in his hiring process. According to Rob: “It’s people like the women profiled in this feature and other men and ladies with the same characteristics who work with these people, who bring the same attention to detail and attitude, that has propelled us into being one of the top-ranked Home Hardware Building Centres in all of Canada.” Rob adds, “We operate in an extremely competitive environment.

Former Camrose player Stickel enjoys time in the LA Dodgers' baseball organization

Former Camrose Cannons baseball player Brant Stickel is still pursuing his dream of playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Major Leagues of Baseball. The Veteran raised baseball player joined the Camrose mosquito squad to play for the triple-A team that played in the top five in the province. The lefthanded hurler received his first taste of the top level of baseball in Alberta under the coaching staff of Murray Green, Frank Eggertson and Wayne Werner. "When we had the opportunity to add the hard throwing lefty to our lineup, there was never any doubt we wanted Brant on our team," said manager and coach Murray. "He threw harder than any pitcher we saw, but we worked with him to harness that energy in making sure the ball crossed the plate most of the time." In 13 and one-third innings with the first place Arizona Dodgers, Brant has one loss, but a sparkling 0.68 earned run average. He has walked four and struck out 11 batters, while allowing just one run in his first appearance. Since then he has made eight appearances without seeing a r unner cross the plate, including a 3.2 inning stint. Brant has also pitched for the Ogden Raptors and the Great Lakes Loons this season. "Our first game of the year,

we lost 24-2 in three and a half innings to Sherwood Park. I wondered what we got ourselves into. I t hought we had a l ot of work to do just to be respectable. However, I had a great group of players who were determined to go to provincials. "We improved so much that we entered triple-A at the mosquito age. The coaches worked extremely hard to improve the skills of the players and we ended up being the first Camrose team ever to play in the triple-A provincials," said Murray. "We were the fifth best team in the province by the end of the season and lost to the same Sherwood Park team in our last game, 10-6. Brant helped us out, and having a former player still playing baseball full time in the Los Angeles Dodgers' system, says a lot about the talent we had on the team." Last year, Brant was signed by the Dodgers after a solid season with the Calgary Vipors of the Golden Baseball League. He pitched 27 innings for Calgary as both a s tarter and reliever. Brant also played some outfield for the Vipors. After having a good spring training with the Dodgers against some major league batters, Brant was sent to Great Lakes where he ran into some wildness. The 6' 4" pitcher was sent to Arizona to regain his form. Brant is currently coached by former Boston Red Sox infielder Jody Reed. Jody played

11 seasons in the majors with a career .270 batting average in 4,554 at bats. Brant enjoyed his time in Midland, Michigan, because it was a l ot like home. Well, not exactly like Veteran. "More like Camrose or Red Deer, I'd say," said Brant earlier in the year. The Calgary Vipers Baseball Club sold Brant's contract to the Los Angeles Dodgers' organization. In a t ryout in Phoenix, Arizona, he threw only four pitches. The scouts were quickly impressed when two reached 92 miles per hour. The 24-year-old was signed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers after his season wrapped up with the Vipers. Los Angeles sent him to winter ball in Venezuela, where he played with an affiliate team named San Joaquin's Los Tiburones de la Guaira. This spring he headed for the famous Camelback Ranch for spring training at the Dodgers' facility in Glendale, Arizona. Aside from getting a chance to spend some time with his first cousin Shane Doan, the Phoenix Coyotes captain, Brant gave up only two hits in eight innings of work at spring training. The baseball player comes from hockey bloodlines, as he is also a cousin to Montreal's Carey Price. After a m eeting with the organization he was assigned to the Midwest League. He also has suited up for the Univer-

sity of Calgary Dinos in the past. In his final season, he led the Canadian College Baseball Conference in strikeouts with 61 in 44 innings pitched. Brant made his professional debut with the Vipers this season and pitched in 15 games, including three starts where in total he struck out 16 batters in

27 innings. He completed four seasons with the Dinos Baseball Club, where he was a f irst Team Canadian College Baseball Conference All-star. His goal, other than pitching in the major leagues, is still to make double-A next year.

The Camrose Resort Casino has some top notch entertainment planned for the fall. The Irish Descendants played to a sold out in the past, so resort casino manager Dawn Anderson brought them back. "We are really excited to have them back. They did a fa ntastic job for us." They hit the lounge for a dinner show on Thursday, September 8. Canada's Tribute to ABBA, a ba nd called Arrival, is also coming back due to popular demand. "We had them perform outside for us. We had an opportunity to bring them in on an off day when they were coming to Alberta," said Dawn. "We like to have some brunch shows in the fall and early winter because we know a l ot of people come in from Sherwood Park, Stony Plain, Edmonton, Wainwright and Hardisty for a b runch and a show. They don't like to travel as much in the winter, so that is why we like to have them in the fall." A n evening show will be held on Saturday, September 17, and a noon show on Sunday, September 18. "We are excited to have a Kenny Rogers tribute show on October 14 and 15. Marty Edwards was here a c ouple of years ago. It's funny because some Camrose people saw him in Mexico and asked him when is he coming back to Camrose. That will be a good show." An Elvis tribute, a s tars tribute variety show and a comedy show for Christmas parties are also on the schedule this year. Tickets for shows can be purchased by calling 780-679-4950.

Churchmice Players presents classic Oliver! next spring By Theo Thirsk, producer, Churchmice Players Society

Charles Dickens' famous novel about a l ittle orphan boy in 1850 London comes to life in the m usical Oliver!, which the Churchmice Players will be presenting next March. Lionel Bart, who wrote the music and lyrics for the play, make the characters in Dickens' novel come to life. They show the humour and tragedy in the great novel. Characters like Nancy, Fagin, Bill Sykes and Oliver are unforgettable. The music makes you want to sing along. The show has a c ast of over 40 characters ranging from 16 to 20 children to 20 adults in various sizes of roles. Oliver is kicked out of the workhouse for asking for more food. He tries working at the undertakers, but that does not work for him, so he goes to Lon-

don. The Artful Dodger takes him to meet Fagin who tries to teach Oliver how to pick pockets. Oliver is found by Mr. Brownlow who takes him home and cares for him. Unfortunately, Fagin and Bill Sykes decide that Oliver should be taken back by Nancy. The plot thickens, until the tragic ending (though Oliver's ending is much better). Beside the many acting parts, there are many tasks to be completed to bring this production to the stage presentation, such as set building/painting, costumes, tickets sales, promotion, front of house, light design/ technician, sound designs/technician, make-up artists, stage manager, assistant stage manager, and props manager. Sylvia Lyon is directing the production. Auditions will be

September 27 and 28 at Sifton School at 7:00 p.m., with rehearsals starting in October. There will be a ba nd for music accompaniment. Theo Thirsk is the producer. If you are interested in helping with the production, please contact Theo Thirsk (780375-2418 or email ChurchmicePlayer@gmail.com ). Tickets will go on sale in November at Cathel Books, 501750 Street, Camrose. There will be both dinner theatre and general seating shows. Please stop by the Community Registration Night, September 7, 2011, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., Camrose Field House (4516-54 St.) and visit the Churchmice Players' booth for more information about the production of Oliver! and other Churchmice Players' activities.

www.AlbertaArtsDays.ca The Camrose Resort Casino will soon be known as a Best Western Plus and offer amenities that have made the hotel chain famous. The casino will be attracting many visitors to the local community. By Murray Green

The Camrose Resort Casino hotel will soon be known as a Best Western Plus destination. The hotel and banquet facility are slated to open in January 2012. "We will open as a Best Western Plus, but it will be based upon a f inal inspection. We shouldn't have any problems because we are surpassing most of their requirements," said manager Dawn Anderson. "We will be offering some services that Best Western Premier hotels have. Our goal is to be at the top of the Plus hotels." Best Western has three tiers of hotels. The regular hotels are equal to a three and a half star hotel. The Plus hotels are rated as a four star destination and the Premier hotels are four and a half or five star hotel. The motor associations rate them as two, three and four diamonds. "To receive a Premier rating, we have to offer services such as things like valet parking, etc. We are not in a big city or near an international airport, so some of those things won't be offered here. That's why our goal is to be the top Best Western Plus hotel in Canada. We will have many upgrades such as the marble vanities, stools and triple sheeting with duvets." Dawn knows that the minute people hear the name Best Western, it means the company meets

certain standards and expectations. "They are very thorough in reporting their inspections because they want the product they are putting out to meet or exceed standards. They want people to feel comfortable going to any Best Western knowing they are going to meet a certain quality. So, that is very exciting for us because we want to exceed even those high standards." Dawn says Best Westerns are easy to work with. "They have differences between American and Canadian markets. We don't have to receive everything from the United States. We can support Canadian and local companies, as long as they meet the requirements set out." The Camrose Resort Casino hotel construction is on schedule to potentially finish in late December. "The progression of the hotel is go ing well. If the banquet facilities are not completed at the same time, it will be within three or four weeks," said Dawn. "We will have 113 rooms. The new conference facilities will accommodate up to 700 people without tables, and 440 to 500 with tables. It will be a big facility for sure." The hotel is ac tively taking bookings for the new year now. "We already have some bookings foe conferences and wedding hotel rooms, even though we are not open yet. We are excited about the opportunity to bring

in tour companies," said Dawn. "This gives people a c hance to see Camrose they might not have otherwise. Our goal ultimately in the first six months, is t o bring in buses at a d iscounted rate so the operators can make a l ittle more money on it. We want to get the people into the community to enjoy what we have to offer as a resort as well as to see Camrose." Local hotels are not booked as seasonal, but rather as week days or weekends. "Our goal is to increase the activity from Monday to Thursday. We want to work extremely hard on spring and summer golf packages, not just for Camrose, but for all surrounding courses. We want to offer lower rates during the week to bring more people to Camrose." The hotel is booked for next summer's Big Valley Jamboree. "We have held 10 rooms back for a contest. The information will be included in our January newsletters we e-mail out, so people that are members of our e-mail newsletter blast can watch for that," said Dawn. The pool, water slide, business centre and fitness facilities are all expected to open the same time as the hotel rooms. "We will have a small board room for about 20 people as well." Currently the casino has about 68 regular full and part time employees. When the hotel opens, that number is expected to expand to between 18 and

22 additional employees. "We feel very confident that we will be able to fill those positions with local people." The 113 rooms will feature five different types. "There will be double queen rooms, which have two queen-sized beds. We have five king executive rooms, which will have a king-sized bed, but also a pull-out double couch, so it will work as a double in a pinch. They have jetted tubs in the bathroom as well," explained Dawn. "We have a k ing executive suite, which has a se parate bedroom with a king-sized bed, a living room area with a fireplace and a f ull kitchenette. Then we have our family suite, which will

sleep up to eight people. We have three of them. Those have a separate bedroom with two queensized beds, as well as a king-sized bed in the living room area. Then we have four full jacuzzi suites. The suites have a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed, a living room area and a jacuzzi tub for two. We will also have three special-needs rooms and they will be equipped with wheelin showers." People can book rooms by calling 780-679-4950. The casino's web site is c urrently being revamped to include all the information pertaining to the hotel and will feature online reservations sometime late in the fall.

Protecting the Canadian economy Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot Constituency

Our Conservative Election Campaign Platform promised that as the government, our Party would remain focused on Canada’s economy and work to create jobs and economic growth while keeping taxes low and delivering support for Canadians through core federal programs and services. As a new majority government, we convened Parliament soon after the election to pass Budget 2011 and follow through on our efforts to protect Canada during the global recession and secure our nation`s fragile recovery. The talk around our riding over the past two weeks expresses concern over the economic difficulties facing Canada’s largest trading partner, the United States. While the U.S. Congress did succeed in securing a deal to hold off

its creditors, the U.S. credit rating suffered its first-ever downgrade. Prime Minister Stephen Harper maintains that, “Canada is in good financial shape.” Our government is making progress on our deficit reduction agenda. S ome nations only wish they could be in our position. European nations are struggling trying to manage massive public debt. A sian investment markets become included in those that suffer as various parts of the global economy experience crisis. F inance Minister Jim Flaherty says, “Canada is w ell-positioned to face global headwinds.” Prime Minister Harper is taking a leadership role to continue our government`s success over the past few years, opening new markets for Canadian firms in order to create new jobs for Canadian workers.

Prime Minister has gone to Brazil because it is c urrently the 7th largest economy in the world. It is poised to grow to the 5th largest. Our strategy over the week-long mission will improve Canada`s relations in Central and South America. At a t ime when our largest customer, the U.S., isn't shopping so m uch, Canada should be in the business of offering others access to our goods and services. At home in Alberta, we are prepared to meet the challenges of supplying new customers in new markets. We have never shied away from competition when we see opportunities to expand our trade and market our goods. Canada`s wealth has always relied on our exports. A w eak global economy hurts a n ation like ours. We have to work at finding ways to improve our posi-

tion. Our Conservative government is doing that work. As nations in the global economy experience economic turmoil within their own borders, by comparison, Canada's national economy remains stable, credible, and an attractive place to invest. It is clear that our Conservative government is d oing the work necessary to prevent the serious financial and economic problems other nations are facing. As they turn to Canada to strike trade deals and improve their own lot trying to emerge from the global recession, Canadian workers and their families prosper.

"With the hotel opening in a few months, it will be a l ittle busy for me," said Dawn. "But, I'm excited about it. It is a h uge learning experience and I'm looking forward to it. You learn something new every day and it is a good opportunity to learn the history of the Chamber." She said that working on policies and creating new ones will be exciting as well. "The Chamber brings new opportunities to the community and that's good. You hit the ground running and try to keep up. I feel we can accomplish a lot, especially with the board we have. We have some experienced past presidents, good staff members and members willing to help, so it will be great to work with everyone. Together, we can try to improve on things wherever we can." With the 100th anniversary signage project almost completed and the train trailer wrap schedule on track, Dawn feels the chamber can move on to other projects. "I would like to bring the circus back. I want to promote the Chamber more. Not a lot of people realize how many volunteers work hard on organizing events such as the Big Valley Parade, Jaywalkers Jamboree and the Mirror Lake Express train rides," said Dawn. "My goal now is t o find ways to improve on them and create more awareness that they are Chamber events. I want to see the Chamber's members involved and maybe add additional events. I would like to see more events for families, to create more exposure for businesses. It should be a fund-raising opportunity and marketing tool for the Chamber, so we can do more things for the community." Camrose has always been an active chamber. "You look at the size of the city and community and our Chamber has been very busy. Comparing apples to apples across Canada, with our strong membership, we are ahead of a lot of communities and we should be very proud of that."

3 Unlikely Underdogs Have Proven

We Are Right SMACK in the Middle of the Perfect Storm For Wealth Driven Investors Meet The Principal, The Welder, and the Protege If you watch too much news right now, you’d think the world is ending in just a few days. Markets down. Gold up. Real estate bubbles have permanently burst. All of it is ABSOLUTE NONSENSE. Everything we are seeing right now, we have seen before. Everything the media is feeding the public is fueling the fire and only making matters worse. The worst part is ... those who are blindly following the media’s lead, are the ones who could be making the most money right now. Yes, it’s true ... as the sky falls around us (according to the press), every day Canadians are making a mint and building their wealth. They aren’t doing anything you couldn’t do ... in fact, they are just following a step-by-step formula that I have recommended to them, and they are finally living the lifestyle that they dreamed of. My name is Darren Weeks and I am fortunate to have created a substantial amount of wealth for myself and my clients. I certainly wasn’t raised with a silver spoon in my mouth. I had a humble beginning, but I discovered some very important lessons early on that helped me become a multi-millionaire by the time I was 35 years old. I did exactly what my parents wanted me to do after high school. I went to the University of Alberta in Edmonton and got a degree in Commerce. Much to my disappointment, getting a degree didn’t make me rich. I soon realized that you have to study money in order to become wealthy. The more time you direct towards your financial affairs, the more money you’ll have. Come to my FREE event and I’ll teach you two things that will make you wealthier right away: better returns on your investments and saving taxes. My company, The Fast Track Group, was just ranked 40th Fastest Growing Company in Canada by Profit Magazine for 2011. In nine years, I have taken it from five employees to over 100. I have helped 50,500 Canadians save $898 MILLION in taxes alone in the past nine years. Those who I helped also donated $1.6 billion to charity in this same time. My greatest pride in all of this? Seeing my clients, students and peers succeeding and thriving in the current economy. They haven’t fallen for the doom and gloom. In fact, the ignore it and have taken charge of their own financial future... knowing full well the media can be morons when it comes to financial advice. A true story of 3 unlikely underdogs who mastered the money game. They each came to me at different times for unique needs in creating, growing and protecting their money. The Principle: Rick Seutter grew up a hard-working boy on a dairy farm. Rather than dreaming of his son taking over the farm, Rick’s dad encouraged him to go to school and aim for a good solid career. Being a good son, Rick did just that. He finished high school, went on to get his Bachelors degree, and become a school teacher – the perfect ‘secure’ career as many would like to think. Rick spent 22 years in the education system as a high school

Rick started reading about the Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad philosophy and ultimately discovered my events in Canada. One thing led to another and Rick ended up investing in real estate and starting a few businesses on the side while maintaining his job as a principal. Now Rick and his wife operate a very successful real estate investing company and Rick has entered into an agreement with the Fast Track Group to share his own strategies and formulas for getting rich in uncertain economies. As Rick says: “I am just an Average Everyday Canadian who educated myself on the right kind of money mindset that creates financial independence, and took massive action to make it a reality. I am VERY concerned about all the people who will be at retirement age in the next 10 years, yet have nothing saved for their retirement. Learning about money from those who have made lots of it was the greatest investment I ever made in myself ... and it’s now my turn to pass that knowledge and experience on.” The Welder: Rob Chaulk came to one of my events in the spring of 2008. He grew up in a family with a poor dad and a rich dad (his uncle). So Rob had been given a good start on his money education. But it wasn’t enough. Rob Chaulk was a blue collar worker who knew his job wasn’t going to make life any easier. He held careers as an ironworker, a welder, a heavy equipment operator and a crane operator. He dabbled in some businesses along the way in the restaurant and towing business. When Rob read the Rich Dad book, he took it seriously and, within 30 days, he bought his first rental property. He was hooked. He put together a plan for 10 properties in 10 years ... his key to retirement. Right around this same time, he had lunch with his rich dad (his multi-millionaire uncle). Not exactly an easy guy to talk to, his uncle “Frank” was self-made and not easy to approach about money. But Rob did approach him – and Frank told him how stupid he was being and how little he still understood about money and leverage. Frank then went on and shared with Rob one of the greatest lessons he had ever learned. Money is ALL about leverage. When your money makes more money for you than your job does ... then you are well on your way to financial freedom. If you make $20 an hour at your job – true financial independence begins when the money you invest is making you $25 an hour without you having to do anything more. Frank showed him how to turn his rental property into 10 properties in just 12 months. Rob then came to a Get Rich event, hosted by myself, and was able to create a $4 million dollar property portfolio in just 24 months. As Rob says, “Money is just the scorecard. When you understand the rules of the game – and how the game works – the money will find you!” While he was building his portfolio of properties,

Note one thing about the education system... ...the lack of focus on money, investing, leverage and business. teacher and then as a principal. As the years went on, Rick started to see the cracks in the traditional school => career => retirement plan that everyone was so convinced on. Note one thing about the education system... ...the lack of focus on money, investing, leverage and business. ... Which explains why Rick soon became so frustrated with this ultimate lifestyle his father told him to pursue. The pension plan offered to teachers and principals was hardly enough to live a life of relative freedom.

Rob also took his health very seriously. Rob was overweight, had high blood pressure, sleep apnea and was sluggish every waking hour. After dropping over 100 pounds, Rob found a new lifestyle that had been long lost, and a money mindset that continues to help him and his family with all of the retirement and dreams. The Protege: Sam Ammar grew up in a very unusual family and location. Sam’s dad moved to Canada speaking very little English, had a grade eight education, and just a few dollars saved to start his new life. Sam’s father ended up starting a janitorial business which then opened the doors to investing in a

hotel, which his mother helped run. They were quick to leverage the janitorial business and hotel into a portfolio of businesses that now includes a laundromat, a liquor store, a fencing company, commercial real estate investments, and a number of residential real estate companies. One of Sam’s interests was the real estate side and Sam was able to take their two residential properties and quickly leverage them into 18 properties. The real estate business grew quickly thanks to The Fast Track Group. Today, Sam continues to help run the family businesses, as well as his own rapidly growing portfolio of investments and businesses. Sam quickly learned that his upbringing and nonreliance on a career-based pay cheque was the only

Is it your turn to master the money mindset? way to create true financial independence. “Learn about money and leverage, and you will never again worry about your future, your freedom, or your independence. Anyone scared of their financial future NEEDS to understand the proper mindset of those who have created real wealth in the current economy.” Is it your turn to master the money mindset? I am proud to share that my system has worked for everyone who has aggressively applied it. You could be the one with a large real estate portfolio and a business or two that runs without you. ...Most people are broke, and will stay that way for the rest of their life. My company has organized an event coming up in your city, and I would like you to join us. Commitment needs follow-through and my team is here to make sure you get the tools you need for creating the independence you crave. Which of these would you like to put a permanent end to? • Worrying about how you will EVER get ahead when the government continues to take what you make. • The fear that your children will not have solid opportunities to create wealth, as the present generations seem to be wasting it all away. • The jealousy you feel when someone else ends up doing exceptionally well financially, knowing FULL WELL you are as smart, or smarter, than they are. • Constantly fretting over the fine balance of saving, investing and playing with your money. • Dreaming about that long vacation you have always wanted and needed, yet knowing it may never happen at the rate you are going now. Give us three hours of your time and we’ll give you powerful strategies that are guaranteed to change your life. Find out how to get out of bad debt and into wise investments. Discover how anyone, no matter how

dire their circumstances, can go from rags to riches in five years or less. My students and business partners are prime examples of how you can start with nothing and build a very healthy investment portfolio and business in five years or less. The best part? We don’t just show you what to do ... you get the formula to go as fast as you like and can handle. Most seminars share the what – not the how. We show you both with specific examples, formulas and resources to get you there on your own pace. Don’t go it alone! Bring a friend or family member with you and enjoy the journey to wealth as a team. When you reserve your seat at this event and bring a guest, we will also give you a CD that sells for $39.95 on our site. Nothing good is ever FREE ... right? Wrong. I know you may be skeptical because we aren’t charging you for this event. Think about this. Each one of the three I have talked about in this started off at a free event just like this. They heard about an event just like this put on by my company. They attended and absorbed every ounce of information shared, and took MASSIVE ACTION. Each of them is now financially independent and able to live life on their own terms. What should you do next? Pick up your phone and dial 1-877-742-4236 or visit our website at www.CamroseGetsRich.com and reserve your seat there. Find one or more friends or family members who want out of the rat race like you do ... and get them a seat booked as well. Last? Don’t let anyone discourage you or get in your way. Real independence starts when you learn to ignore all the negative people in your life who don’t want you to succeed. Make sure you show up, take lots of notes, and immediately start putting these ideas into action. If three completely unknown individuals can be in the same situation you are and become financially independent in five years or less ... why can’t you? This is the real deal and I have gone from $0 to $100 million in revenues in just nine years using these strategies ... my students are proof that my techniques work everywhere, for anyone who is willing to take action. Stop what you are doing right now and get your seat booked. Dial 1-877-742-4236 or visit our website at www.CamroseGetsRich.com and reserve your seat there. To your newfound success and money mastery! – Darren Weeks, Founder The Fast Track Group of Companies P.S.: The definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results!” Your success demands an investment of your time and money ... and we are handing you a grand opportunity to improve your odds of success many times over.

Use precautions when cleaning flooded homes Recent heavy rains in central Alberta have resulted in basement flooding, prompting Alberta Health Services to advise residents of proper techniques for flood cleanup. A few simple precautions can protect residents from floodrelated risks such as electrocution, infection and exposure to mould growth: Well water: If flood water enters a well water or cistern system, testing is necessary before consumption to confirm water is sa fe. Well and cistern water testing kits are provided, free of charge, by Alberta Health Services Environmental Public Health. More information on well testing is available from H YPERLINK "http:// www.albertahealthservices.ca/ Advisories/ne-pha-2011-07-14faq-well-testing.pdf" http://www. albertahealthservices.ca/Advisories/ne-pha-2011-07-14-faq-welltesting.pdf Food: All food in contact with flood water should be discarded. Only metal cans that are undamaged can be used after they are washed in a detergent or chlorine solution. Flooring: Soaked carpets should be removed and professionally cleaned or d iscarded. Flooring underneath should be

dried out as soon as possible, and then cleaned and sanitized before replacing flooring. Sheet flooring should be cleaned and sanitized as soon as possible if in good condition, or removed if it is in poor shape or difficult to dry quickly. Walls: As soon as possible, drywall or panelling should be removed up to one to two feet above the flood-line. All insulation should be removed and discarded and the cavity should be dried as quickly as possible. Appliances: Large appliances that have been partially submerged (washing machines, dryers, freezers, etc.) should be serviced or professionally cleaned if there is a ny concern about internal contamination. Furnaces and Hot Water Heaters: If these have been partially submerged, they should be professionally serviced and cleaned. Electricity: When working in flooded areas, ensure breakers are off and appliances are unplugged. For cleaning the areas mentioned, a warm water/mild detergent should be used, followed by sanitization with a one to 10 bleach/water solution (add one cup bleach to nine cups water). It is i mportant to dry all areas

as soon as possible to prevent mould and mildew problems.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER August 23, 2011

Kodiaks play the Bobcats to start new preseason By Murray Green The Camrose Kodiaks opened training camp today (Tuesday, August 23) to begin the reloading process for the junior team. Although the team lost some key veterans, the coaching staff will be working hard to ensure the Kodiaks are contenders in the south division of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Camrose battled for the Royal Bank Cup, which was hosted by the community last year. Players attending camp will be split into four squads for drill sessions and mini-games. The groups will be named in honour of former players: Team Raymond, Team Bertram, Team Colborne and Team Olsen for the first two days. The ice sessions are at 10:30 and 11:15 a.m. and then 12:30 and 1:15 p.m., followed by dry land training for each group. Then the four squads will be revamped into just two teams to prepare for the Black and White game on Thursday, August 25, at 8:45 p.m., at the Edgeworth Centre. A few cuts will be made as the Kodiaks prepare for their first exhibition game on Friday, August 26, against the Lloydminster Bobcats at 8 p.m. Camrose fans will recognize some names from last year's squad. Players at camp will include Craig Bokenfohr, Landon Kadatz, Nolan Marshall, Luc Vandale, Brayden Hopfe, Connor Milligan, Tanner Marshall, Jonathan Lashyn, Sam Jardine and Rylan Wiest. The exhibition schedule continues when the Kodiaks travel to St. Albert to face the Steel on Tuesday, August 30, in an away match. Then the Bonnyville Pontiacs face 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 fly into Camrose for a F riday, September 9, game at 7:30 p.m. The same two clubs 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 entry fee includes golfing, cart, prizes and the dinner. Additional tickets for the dinner are available. The deadline to enter is F riday, August 26, at 4 p .m. For tickets or for further information, contact the Kodiaks' office at 780-679-2603, or Ray McIsaac at 780-679-8363.

School safety starts with buses When the subject of school safety crops up, more often than not we think about the school bus system. However, according to statistics, the school bus is o ur childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safest means of transportation. Most accidents occur outside the school bus. So, at this time of year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital to educate our children on the importance of traffic lights, which govern the lives of pedestrians, drivers and cyclists.

So be sure that your children understand the significance of traffic lights and know when they can cross a r oad without putting their lives in danger. Taking a walk with your children is a great way of making them more aware of, for example, how many traffic lights there are in your neighbourhood or in the downtown area. This can be an amusing way of getting children to understand that they should only cross the road at intersec-

tions and where there are traffic lights or stop signs. All light signals are a go od excuse to learn more about safety: the white lights at the rear of a vehicle indicate that it is reversing, flashing lights on a school bus compel vehicles to stop, a pedestrian signal is a white light in the form of a man and pedestrians should never start crossing the road when the red hand is flashing.

Arthur “Art” August Roth Art was born in the Rolly View area on April 13, 1921. He attended school there and was confirmed into the Lutheran Church. He enjoyed playing soft ball with the Rolly View Junior team and then the Seniors.

In later years, while living in Camrose, Art and Anna were very active in the Seniors’ Centre with floor curling and won many trophies. In March 2011, he mo ved into Maple Cottage at B ethany Meadows and made new friends again. The family would like to thank the staff at B ethany Meadows for their loving care.

Bawlf Playschool, Out of School Care Programs getting ready for new year By Dan Jensen

The Bawlf Playschool and Out of School Care programs are getting ready to start another year of operation. "We're looking forward to welcoming all the kids back," said Bawlf Playschool Society director Tannis Zimmel. The Bawlf Playschool program is designed to prepare children ages three and four for school. "We have just hired a new playschool teacher who is implementing a p rogram focused around learning through play," said Zimmel. "We also have a pa rent, guardian or volunteer who helps with each class." The program operates out of a portable building one block east of the Bawlf School Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. The Bawlf Playschool has a total capacity of 15 children. "We have seven children who have been registered and expect to fill up the remaining spots at registration night August 25 and 26," said Zimmel. The Bawlf Out of School Care Program will provide service to students from kindergarten to Grade 6 d uring the course of the school year, starting with the first day of classes. The program will also provide care for children from noon to 6:30 on early out teacher meeting days and full days on teacher professional development days. Students must be picked up by 6:30. "This is the second year of operation for the Bawlf Out of

School Care Program," stated Zimmel. "Last year we had 16 kids registered full and part time." The Bawlf Out of School Care program is p opular with parents who find themselves working days in Camrose and cannot always get home by the time school ends. "We have had a lot of parents tell us how much they appreciate having the program in place," said Zimmel. "Students enjoy healthy snacks, and are able to participate in games, activities and crafts." The Bawlf Out of School Care program operates out of a separate part of the same portable building as the Bawlf Playschool program. Every day the leader and staff meet the children at the school at a designated meeting place, then walk over to the hall. The Bawlf Playschool and Bawlf Out of School Care programs are available to children from a wide rural area. "There are some parents who send their children to Bawlf just because of the access to after school care," said Zimmel. More information about the Bawlf Playschool and Bawlf Out of School Care programs may be obtained by calling Zimmel at 780-3760004, or visiting the Bawlf Playschool Society website at www.ruralkids.ca. Parents wishing to register their children at the Playschool/Out of School Care building in Bawlf should bring their child's birth certificate, their legal land location/address and the legal land location/address of one emergency contact person.

September 1 • Grade 10 – 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon registration and orientation. This is for ALL NEW students to CCHS.

September 1 – 12:40 p.m. • School begins for ALL students.

Sixth Camrose registration Aug. 24 By Dan Jensen

The Sixth Camrose Scouts will be holding their registration night from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night (Aug. 24) at the United Church in Camrose. Scouting is an opportunity for youth to get outdoors, have fun and develop their leadership potential. It's also good for entire families. "There are numerous opportunities for adults to join the fun too," said one Scout leader. "We are actively recruiting and accepting new members all year round." Scouting programs include Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers. The Beaver program for youth ages five to seven emphasizes having fun while encouraging children to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, God, and nature. Beavers helps children learn basic social skills and gain self confidence. The program promotes activities that encourage children to: find examples of their own spiritual beliefs, experience and express love and joy, be healthy and have good feelings about themselves, develop a sense of belonging and sharing in small group activities, and develop a sense of cooperation through non-competitive activities. "The Beaver program is built around a l ively variety of games, crafts, music, storytelling, playacting, spiritual fellowship and the outdoors," said the leader. "Beaver activities stress cooperation and teamwork, and can involve the whole family." The Beaver promise is to love God and help take care of the world. The Cub program, designed for youth 8 to 10, focuses around

six activity areas: the natural world, outdoors, creative expression, healthy living, home and community, and Canada and the world. "The outdoors is an essential part of the Cub program," states Scouts Canada. "Weekend events, hikes and overnight camping opportunities round out the Cubbing experience." The Cub promises to do his or her best, love and serve God, do his or her duty to the Queen, keep the law of the Wolf Cub pack, and do a go od turn for somebody every day. The Scout program promotes activities that encourage youth 11 to 14 to express and respond to their own spiritual values and beliefs while showing concern for others, develop self reliance, pursue hobbies and personal interests, develop self discipline and the skills of working cooperatively with others, cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals, practise leadership skills, relate with adults, be of service to others, camp, explore the outdoors, and develop good conservation practices. "The program is designed around a lively variety of activities based on personal and group interests," states Scouts Canada. "Scouts emphasizes outdoor and environmental activities, citizenship and community service, leadership, and personal development." Scouts promise to do their best, do their duty to God and the Queen, to help other people at all times, and to carry out the spirit of the Scout law, which is to be helpful and trustworthy, kind and cheerful, considerate and clean, and wise in the use of all resources.

The Venturer program emphasizes having fun while encouraging teens to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, God, and the environment. Venturers helps teens advance their leadership skills and gain self confidence. Venturers promotes activities that encourage youth 14 to 17 to show that they care and live according to their personal beliefs, develop and use the skills of communicating, solving problems and making decisions, explore vocational opportunities, participate in a variety of social, cultural and spiritual activities, work cooperatively in adult-like settings, participate in challenging physical and outdoor activities, and become aware of and respond to needs of the community and the environment "The Venturer program is built around a l ively variety of activities based on personal and group interests," states Scouts Canada. "It emphasizes outdoor and environmental activities, citizenship and community service, leadership and personal development, and career exploration." As well, Venturing helps teens gain new knowledge and skills that can lead to a sa tisfying career. Rovers, who are youth 18 to 24, participate in adventurous activities like mountain climbing, white water rafting, or parasailing. Rovers also help their local communities by running service activities such as food drives, park clean-ups, and tree plantings. Rovers meet in a group called a crew. Rovers develop and manage their own program under the mentorship of a re spected advisor.

On the road … the automotive section of

Ford Ranger A combination of fuel efficiency, flexibility and affordability By Dan Jensen

The 2011 Ford Ranger at Lamb Ford Sales Ltd. in Camrose combines Ford's tough-truck heritage with fuel efficiency, affordability and flexibility in a small pickup that's big on value. Rangers equipped with the 2.3 litre four-cylinder engine offers estimated fuel economy of 7.3 litres per 100 km highway and 9.5 litres per 100 km in the city. "It's fuel efficiency is best in the class of compact pickups," said Lamb Ford Sales sales manager Brett Read. The available 4.0 litre V6 engine, standard on Ranger SPORT and XLT kicks out 207 horsepower and 238 lb.-ft. of torque. Total towing capability for the Ranger's 2.3 litre and 4.0 litre engines is 979 and 2,630 lbs. respectively. Both engines come standard with a five-speed manual transmission and are available with a smooth, durable five-speed automatic transmission. Well-equipped

Ranger is available in regular cab and SuperCab configurations. The segment's only seven-foot box is available as a fleet option on the XL regular cab model. XL and XLT 4x2 and 4x4 series are equipped with stylish standard wheels and tires, while a Class III trailer hitch is standard across the line. The lower front bumper valance has an integrated one-inch air deflector to help reduce drag and improve fuel economy. Large fog lamps provide excellent visibility and tougher appearance. XLT models features body-colour front and rear step bumpers and a chrome H-bar grille that is standard on 4x2 setups for a bolder look. Sport SuperCab trucks offer standard step bars, while the Sport SuperCab 4x4 is equipped with standard skid plates to protect major components at the front, middle and rear of the truck's underbelly. Ranger 4x4s live and breathe serious capability. Select the ideal drive on the available electronic shift-onthe-fly 4x4 transfer case without stopping – simply by turning a switch. Also available to up your go-anywhere potential: heavy duty shocks (standard on SPORT and XLT) and as many as three skid platges (fore, mid and aft). No wonder Ranger is a favourite at the Best in the Desert Racing Association series, where Ford rules as official truck. The FX4 off-road package on Ranger Sport models includes 4.10 limited slip 8.8 inch rear differential, 16-inch Y-spoke cast aluminum wheels, FX4 decal, black side step bars, cloth bucket seats, privacy glass, power equipment group and tilt steering with cruise control. Loaded

The Ford Ranger XLT cabin is loaded with more than ergonomics. On top of the leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt and cruise control, you get this XLT exclusive: fully carpeted flooring with matching carpeted floor mats up front. Rear jump seats are standard on all SuperCab

Safety and security

Ranger provides high levels of safety and security via the Ford Personal Safety Craig Beddoes System, AdvanceTrac with RSC, seat-mounted side airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, and SecuriLock passive anti-theft system, all included as standard equipment on all models. AdvanceTrac with RSC delivers a level of performance that competitive stability control systems can't match. Unlike competitors' systems, AdanceTrac with RSC utilizes a second gyroscopic roll rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body angle and roll rate.

models equipped with the 4.0 SOHC V6. Fold them down to give your passengers lots of leg room or fold them up to make way for gear. The sporty cargo net is great for keeping smaller stuff close at hand, yet out of the way. A plug and play MP3 mode on the available stereo system, which also comes with a CD player, gives you the all-in-one convenience of an audio input jack. So you can plug in your MP3 player and pump out all your tunes.

If the unique roll rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures – such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power – to enhance vehicle rollover resistance. Also standard is a four-wheel Anti-Lock Brake System, along with driver and front passenger air bags, seat belts with front pretensioners for outboard seating positions, and side-intrusion door beams. The Ford frontpassenger sensing system helps ensure airbags are not deployed on the passenger side when small children are detected.

This is your last chance to see the Ranger as Ford will be discontinuing production after the 2011 model year. Lamb Ford Sales Ltd. is located on Highway 13 East, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2411, or toll free 1-800-994-9953.

Round Hill and District Ag Society bench show attracts 1,200 entries By Dan Jensen

Baking, garden vegetables, crop sheaves, school art photography, flowers and home-made crafts were on display at the Round Hill Community Centre Aug. 9 a nd 10 when the Round Hill and District Agricultural Society held its 27th annual bench show. "We had a go od turnout, both in the number of exhibitors and the number of viewers," said bench show committee chair Connie Prost. "It's also a good way to bring the community together." The Round Hill bench show is one of the largest in the province with more than 1,200 entries on a yearly basis. "We had 1,245 entries this year from 92 entrants," said Prost. The entries were down by about 40 from last year but the number of exhibitors was up by 20." The garden and crop entries were the lowest they have been in a number of years. "The hail we received in July did a lot of damage," said bench show secretary Jean Teeple. "Normally our garden and crop entries are high." One of the show's most popular categories was photography. In fact, photos and school art covered most of the Hall's southern wall. The bench show started in 1985 with 198 different categories, a number that has since grown to 588. A family can enter as many categories as it wants for just $10. The entry fee charged for individuals is $5. While most of the exhibitors are from the Round Hill, Kingman, Ohaton and Camrose areas, there are usually some from farther afield. "It is an event that appeals to all ages," said Teeple. "We draw from a very large area." A wiener roast and a f ireworks display that attracted plenty of oohs and aahs were part of the show Wednesday night. Don, Angi, Samuel, James and Teddy Messick won the 2011

Debbie Blouin was head of the horticultural section.

Solid planning leads to lower debt forecast Doug Griffiths, MLA Battle River - Wainwright

An improved forecast for revenue, largely due to higher oil prices and near-record land sales, have lowered Alberta’s expected 2011-12 deficit to $1.3 billion, a decrease of 60 per cent from budget. Revenue is p rojected to be $2.7 billion higher than forecast at budget due to strong land lease sales and higher oil prices. Investment income is also forecast to be higher. Expense is forecast to increase $650 million from budget, with the majority ($456 million) related to disaster and emergency funding, including for forest fire-fighting and assistance to Slave Lake. Operating spending is up slightly by $62 million, with nearly half the increase going towards increased lump sum payments for employees of community-based agencies that provide care on behalf of government for children and people with disabilities. The deficit will be covered by Alberta’s savings account, the Sustainability Fund. Government built up this account with money from its past savings to help fund priority public programs and services, maintain significant capital spending and keep taxes low during difficult economic times. The Sustainability Fund is forecast to end the year with $9.7 billion in assets, an increase of $4.4 billion from the budget estimate. The increase is due to the lower deficit, cash

Report from the Legislature transferred to the account from last fiscal year’s results and positive changes in capital or other cash adjustments. First Quarter Fiscal Highlights: • revenue for 2011-12 is forecast at $38.3 billion, up $2.7 billion from budget; • expense for 2011-12 is forecast at $39.6 billion, an increase of $650 million from budget, mainly for disasters and emergencies; • deficit for 2011-12 is f orecast at $1.3 billion, a decrease of $2.1 billion from budget ; • Sustainability Fund assets forecast at $9.7 billion at March 31, 2012, an increase of $4.4 billion from budget; and • The Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund earned $269 million in net investment income, and its fair market value was $15.1 billion at June 30, 2011. New grant program benefits land conservation in Alberta

A new provincial grant program will help further the conservation and protection of ecologically important lands in the province. The Alberta Land Trust Grant Program will make grants available to land trust organizations for the purchase of conservation easements on private land

and to manage land administered under trusts. Conservation easements are legally binding voluntary agreements between a landowner and a la nd trust. When placed on the land title, an easement restricts future surface development but current activities, like grazing, continue. The landowner retains title. A land trust is a not-for-profit, non-government organization established to promote biodiversity conservation on private land. Any land trust currently operating in Alberta is eligible to apply for grant funding but must provide other funding and demonstrate that their project aligns with the government’s overall conservation objectives. The grant and matching funds must go t owards a s pecific project. A t otal of $5 million will be available for 2011-12. The Alberta Land Stewardship Fund was established following changes in 2010 to the Public Lands Act, resulting from the Alberta Land Stewardship Act. The application deadline is Sept. 26. For information or to obtain an application package, contact Landtrust.grantprogram@gov.ab.ca. Updated family law statutes promote well-being of children

As of Aug. 1, 2011, updat-

ed Alberta family law statutes will make it easier to establish the parentage of children born through assisted human reproduction. Changes also address guardianship and abolish the status of illegitimacy, which is no longer relevant in Alberta law. Changes to the Family Law Act update the legislation regarding parentage of children born using assisted human reproduction to ensure children born through this technology have certainty about the status of their legal parents. Updates also clarify that, in most cases, parents are the guardians of their children if they have shown the intention to assume responsibility for them. Alberta continues to be a national leader in parentage law for children born using assisted human reproduction. These changes to legislation are based on promoting the best interests of children and are part of a larger strategy, which includes other important features like Family Justice Services programs that provide information, mediation services, and courses to assist parents and children who are experiencing family separation. These programs and services operate alongside the court system to promote appropriate dispute resolution and the best interests of children.

Bill 22, the Family Law Statutes Amendment Act, was passed by the Alberta legislature on Nov. 25, 2010. This Act incorporates amendments to three different pieces of legislation: the Family Law Act, the Maintenance Enforcement Act and the Interjurisdictional Support Orders Act. Some of the changes to the Maintenance Enforcement Act are already in force. Further changes to the Maintenance Enforcement Act and the Interjurisdictional Support Orders Act will be proclaimed in the coming months. No increase to mandatory auto insurance premiums

As a result of its annual rate review, the Automobile Insurance Rate Board (AIRB) will hold premiums to 2010 levels for mandatory automobile insurance. The decision not to increase rates was based on input from Albertans, the board’s consumer representative, the board’s actuary, and insurers during an open meeting held in June. Holding rates to 2010 levels strikes a fair balance between Albertans who pay insurance premiums and Albertans who are injured in automobile accidents and have a legitimate need to make a claim. This decision applies only to mandatory coverage, which is required by law, and includes third party liability and accident benefits coverage. It does not include optional collision or comprehensive coverage. Those premiums are set by individual insurance companies.

Peewee Cougars garner silver medals at westerns

By Murray Green The Camrose Cougars peewee baseball team collected silver medals at westerns after they posted a 3 -1 record in the round robin portion of the 2011 Western Canada Peewee doubleA Baseball Championships in Morden, Manitoba, from August 11 to 14. The Cougars tore apart their opposition to earn gold medals at the Competitive Tier 1 provincial championships in Grande Prairie on July 29 to 31 to qualify for westerns in Morden. Camrose defeated the host club 9-2, edged Manitoba 9-8, lost to Saskatchewan 13-1 and beat B.C. 10-8 to advance to the final at westerns. A tired Camrose squad faced B.C. in the final, losing 22-7, and were awarded silver medals. Eric Burton and Bob Charchun coached with Dave Ofrim as the manager. Players include Matt Andreassen, Connor Weins, Kyler Charchun, Devin Heck, Jacob Kendall, John HunterRobbins, Spencer Burton, Grant Lynes, Evan Schoenknecht, Ryan Burton, Jeff Ofrim, Kyler Kupka, and bat-boys Kobe Charchun and Alex Andreassen. Midget Cougars Team Alberta, known around here as the Camrose Cougars, tied for fourth place at the Western Canada Midget double-A Baseball Championships in Morden from August 11 to 14. The Cougars had a 1 -3 record in four games. Camrose lost a close 6-5 contest to the host team to open the tournament. The team lost a 1 0-6 game to Manitoba and 10-8 to unbeaten Saskatchewan before winning against B.C. 5-3. All four games were close, but the Cougars missed out on the playoffs. Manitoba won the westerns 11-8 over Saskatchewan. The Cougars advanced to westerns by capturing the gold medals at the midget Tier 1 Baseball Alberta provincials in Rocky Mountain House on July 29 to 31.

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.

PERSONAL DRINKING A PROBLEM? Alcoholics Anonymous, call 780672-9903. LOST THAT LOVING FEELING? Find it with a personal ad in The Camrose Booster classifieds. Ph. 780-672-3142.

PETS/PET SUPPLIES 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.

GOT PUPPIES? If that sneaky dog of the neighbour’s has been over lately and you’ve got a litter of puppies to prove it... move them fast with a Camrose Booster classified ad. Ph. 780-672-3142.

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.

Source: Be Car Care Aware Canada Summer is the main season for road construction, which means there's a go od chance you'll hit a b ump or two, or come across loose stones and other hazards associated with construction zones. These road conditions can be tough on a vehicle's steering and suspension systems and can throw out the alignment, while loose stones have the potential to damage the vehicle's exterior or windshield. The symptoms of steering and suspension or wheel alignment problems are uneven tire wear, pulling to one side, noise and vibration while cornering or loss of control. The main parts of the systems are shocks and/ or struts, the steering knuckle, ball joints, the steering rack/box, bearings, seals or hub units, and tie rod ends. Motorists have their vehicles checked immediately if any of these symptoms exist, as steering and suspension systems are key safety-related components and largely determine the car's ride and handling. Regardless

of road conditions, these systems should be checked annually and a wheel alignment should be performed at the same time. Motorists also should do frequent visual checks of their vehicle's exterior and windshield to identify any chips, dings or cracks. These are small problems that can become costly repairs and safety hazards if they aren't taken care of immediately. "Even the most careful driver, who is t raveling slowly and carefully through a w ork zone, can hit an unexpected bump or other road hazards," said Patty Kettles, Manager, Marketing and Communications, Be Car Care Aware Canada. "The key is to pay attention to your car and if you think there's a p roblem, have it taken care of as soon as possible." Research shows that there is $10 billion worth of vehicle maintenance and repair being neglected by Canadian consumers. Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line, either in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value.

By Murray Green The Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL), which includes the Alberta Junior Hockey League, has declared the Junior A S upplement Pilot Project a s uccess after in-depth review of the new initiative. Last August, five member leagues within the CJHL launched a commitment to player safety initiative with a joint effort to eliminate excess violence and bullying in junior A hockey. The various league presidents and commissioners met in Calgary this year to discuss potential revisions to the project for the 2011-12 season and to further review the successful results of year one. The Junior A Supplement is an unprecedented joint initiative between the CJHL and Hockey Canada. It was created to protect junior-aged hockey players by addressing actions such as blows to the head, dangerous hits, accumulated major penalties, instigators and unnecessary fighting. In the AJHL, the total number of checking from behind penalties increased from 75 to 91, the blow to the head penalties increased from 24 to 60 and game misconducts went up by 110 because the referees were enforcing the infractions more last season. "At the start of the 2010-11 season we implemented an innovative, proactive and responsible approach to addressing player safety issues facing hockey today, including head shots and dangerous hits," said CJHL chair-

man Kirk Lamb. "The CJHL and its leagues were ahead of the curve and we have since seen other leagues, such as the NHL and the CHL, follow suit in implementing more focused and rigid regulations relating to these issues. Player safety is a concern at all levels of hockey, for a variety of different reasons, and the CJHL broke new ground with the Junior A Supplement and has set new standards – not only in Junior A hockey, but for sport at all levels." The good news is that in the AJHL, the total number of fights decreased to 333 from 494, instigator infractions were reduced from 115 to 86 and players participating in six or more fights plummeted from 44 to just six. The themes in the pilot project are safety, education and communication. It increases team, coach and player accountability through the tracking of repeat offenders, increased suspensions and significant financial penalties. It dramatically heightened the awareness of issues surrounding player safety and dangerous hits throughout the league, including the players, game officials, coaches, media and fans. Handbooks with the new supplement were strategically dispersed at the start of last season to ensure all participants were educated about the pilot project and to further increase the chances of success. Players and game officials received handbooks created specifically to address their participation in the project. All coaches were

also required to sign a Coaches Code of Conduct, which outlines their responsibility to the initiative and a commitment to player safety. The five leagues involved in the Junior A Supplement experienced several positive advancements throughout the first year of the pilot project. Leagues can now clearly identify trends and repeat offenders and can also confirm that only a s mall percentage of players are repeating what would be considered dangerous acts. The supplement has forced these players to alter their behaviour in a positive way. So- called staged fights and multiple fight incidents were almost eliminated and the number of players participating in six or more fights throughout the season declined substantially across all leagues. Competitiveness within the league from top to bottom increased during the year. "The quality of play and skill exhibited within the MJHL this past season was the best the league has seen in the past 10 years," said Manitoba Junior Hockey League commissioner Kim Davis. The two-year pilot project will compare data from the participating leagues. The data will determine whether fighting is reduced in the junior game by ejecting a player for his first fighting major and the effect on other violent behaviour.
