Cooking oil and high temperatures are an invitation for deadly and destructive fires. Don’t wear loose, dangling clothing when working at the stove. Keep children, electrical cords, and combustibles a safe distance away from the stove. Never leave the kitchen if the stove is being used, or as the fire-fighters say: “stand by your pan!” And, always keep a proper-fitting pot lid close by if you’re cooking. If a pot catches fire, slide the lid over the pot and turn off the stove. Finally, never move the pan until the fire is completely and absolutely extinguished.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER, October 1, 2013 – Page 4

Central Agencies celebrates 50th anniversary Central Agencies marked fifty years of business in Camrose Sept. 27 by hosting a noon lunch. "It is a way of showing our appreciation to a supportive public, our clients and the community in general," said Central Agencies owner Norm Mayer. "We are very grateful for the support we have received over the years." The official date of the 50th anniversary is today (Oct. 1). Norm and Betty Mayer came to Camrose as newlyweds in 1958 when Norm accepted a job at a local insurance agency. A year later they moved on to Calgary, where sons Bruce and James were born before the family of four returned to Camrose in 1963. Six months later, Central Agencies was born. The new insurance business began in the dining room of the Mayers' home with the agency phone on the kitchen counter. Norm was the sole agent and Betty managed the "office", creating files and keeping things organized while also supervising the two toddlers. Eventually, Central Agencies found a home of its own on 49 Street and, after a couple of moves, settled

Valerie, James, Betty and Norm Mayer at the luncheon in the Central Agencies parking lot Sept. 27.

into a brand new three-storey brick building in 1976. The Mayers have always been very active in the community. Norm was a member of the Lions Club, the Chamber of Commerce and helped with the Cubs/Boy Scouts. Betty, said Norm, made it her priority to ensure things ran smoothly behind the scenes so he could continue that community role. She worked in the business and oversaw their household, which for 16

years included Norm's father, Matyes, in addition to the couple's two sons. But she was usually at Norm's side for public events, and fully encouraged his public role. Norm played an instrumental role in the formation of The Battle River Community Foundation. "I could really see the value of having a vehicle for ensuring there was continuity in funding for some of

the community's important organizations," he said. Norm and Betty are strong financial contributors to many causes, including the performing arts centre, to which they made a generous contribution. As a way to commemorate 50 years in business the Mayer families made a sizeable donation to Camrose Special Olympics. "It's like that old saying," Norm explains. "We can't cure all the problems of the

world but we can help someone. So we do." The busy day of celebration concluded Friday evening with a dinner for employees past and present. Many former employees travelled significant distances to attend. Among the guests was Ron Larson, Norm's very first insurance associate, who now lives in Vernon, B.C. Ron was with Central Agencies for 26 years.

Council directs administration to look at traffic calming By Dan Jensen

City council has directed administration to look at traffic calming initiatives and their associated costs for 43 Avenue west of Kin Park and 47 Avenue in front of the Gardner Kids' Campus day care centre. "We clearly have people in those areas who have identified a need, so lets look at what those options are and any associated that you (administration) bring forward for consideration in the 2014 budget," said Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers at council's Sept. 16 regular meeting. "I think there is a viable solution." Speed reduction

City assistant municipal engineer, infrastructure and planning, Jeremy Enarson, submitted a report to council stating that administration would not recommend making changes to the City's updated policy for the installation of pedestrian safety devices (PED-1 policy). "Specifically administration would advise council to not consider changes to the policy which would treat these specific locations (43 Avenue or 47 Avenue) as special cases," said Enarson. "Administration believes that there are other options that council could consider to address some of the specific concerns that were raised by both groups of concerned parties without creating a special cases or one-off situa-

tions which would likely lead to further requests to council by other concerned groups to create similar special cases for their specific play areas or schools of concern." Enarson said the physical geography of 43 Avenue and the lack of residents on the east side of the road are contributing factors toward some of the safety concerns that residents in that area have raised. "The roadway cross-section for 43 Avenue is slightly wider than what is typically seen for a local roadway. For this reason, 43 Avenue by its design and function acts more like a minor collector roadway than a local roadway. As well, due to the lack of residential properties on the east side of the roadway, where Kin Park is located, parking along the roadway is generally much lower than what is seen on a typical local roadway. For these reasons, a driver will tend to naturally travel at a slightly higher speed, even as they stay under the posted speed limit. On the other hand, for many local roadways within the City which have a tighter geometry and which typically see parked vehicles on both sides of the roadway, drivers tend to travel at lower speeds." Enarson said while addition of chicanes or bulb extensions at intersections or main pedestrian crossing locations would help calm 43 Avenue traffic, they often can be expensive and difficult to implement.

"Before administration would recommend any capital improvements be undertaken for this area, administration would recommend a more detailed review of the location to determine the most appropriate upgrades that might be recommended to council so that the costs and benefits can be more fully understood. "Additionally, traffic calming measures will likely result in additional operational or maintenance issues for City crews; these would also need to be taken into consideration before any decisions are made by council regarding the installation of traffic calming measures." Enarson said a reduction of the normal speed limit along 47 Avenue near the Gardner Kids' Campus while leaving the speed limits for adjacent roadways unchanged would not be recommended by administration as it may lead to driver confusion as well as a false sense of security to facility users. Enarson noted the developer of the Kids' Campus property was to secure at least 15 off-street parking stalls within a distance of 150 metres of the proposed development, as well as prepare a parking plan indicating how parking would be accommodated on all affected properties. "Upon review of the City's files, administration was unable to determine whether a parking plan was submit-

ted to the City, or if caveats were registered on the appropriate titles. Administration does anticipate that many of the safety concerns associated with the loading and unloading of facility users would be addressed if the facility users would make use of the designated offstreet parking stalls." Easy road access

Councillor Gerry Galenza noted that one of the problems in the 43 Avenue area are pathways or trails that spill directly onto the road. "What they have done is they have put concrete (for the handicapped) right out to the road, so it is encouraging people with their bikes and everything else to just go barrelling down and across. That is a concern, particularly at the two west sections." Galenza also expressed concern about the lack of signage on 43 Avenue. "There is no signage as far as speed limits and there is no signage as far as a crosswalk." Galenza suggested one solution for 47 Avenue may be to remove the treed boulevard in front of the day care and make a designated drop off zone. "I went by today, there was a dad and three little kids getting out on 47 Avenue. Of course they don't get out on the inside, they get out on the outside, and there is traffic through. At that point it is fairly narrow. I don't know,

maybe they themselves have to contribute to some local improvement of having a drop off zone if they can't provide the off street parking." Councillor John Howard suggested that if the City puts up chicanes or cattle gates at the entrance to Kin Park it could be creating a problem for the mobility impaired. "That is why you have concrete out to the road, because some council passed that we have to be more mobility accessible. We solved that problem and created another one." Howard said council may have to have a conversation with Kids' Campus if it is not providing the 17 off street parking stalls that are required. "Maybe we give up a piece of the boulevard and ask them to help with the local improvement to make a drop off possible. I drive past there almost every day and I am scared to death every time I do because for one thing it is not 11 metres wide. It is narrow, and when there are cars parked on both sides, cars can't get through there. One can but if both cars have opened their doors I can't get my car through that opening. It looks to me as if it is a case where maybe the City hasn't done everything we can do but then neither has the day care centre seemingly conformed with their development permit."

The criteria used to select the recipient include: An active duty Camrose police officer with volunteer dedication and commitment outside their role and duty as an officer. Current volunteer involvement with several years of commitment-unusual complexity of service and contribution to the community having a significant impact on many individuals.

Conference at Augustana will foster dialogue around spiritual connection to land and space Submitted by the Spirit of the Land team The Augustana campus of the University of Alberta will host a conference in Camrose on November 1 and 2 to foster dialogue around spiritual connection to land and place. Co-sponsored by the Chester Ronning Centre, the U of A Augustana Campus, and the Aboriginal Student Office, the conference follows its predecessor, Responsibility for the Land – Conversations on Fracking in Alberta, which was held in the fall of 2012, and orga-

nized by a group of dedicated students concerned about the political and ecological issues of hydraulic fracturing. The hope this year is to deepen the scope to include the spiritual dimensions of our ecological challenges. Alongside a host of newcomers, last year’s conference organizers will collaborate with First Nations leaders, farmers, scholars, and ecologists to create an open f loor for Albertans hoping to foster a deeper connection to land and community. Guiding the

conference is a belief in collaboration, understanding, and above all, the cultivation of relationships and community, with community including both the people and the land that supports and nourishes us. The conference will feature Sylvia McAdam, one of the founders of Idle No More, and Janice Makokis, a First Nations scholar in Alberta. We will also hear from Dr. Roger Epp, former dean of Augustana and current political science

professor at the University of Alberta, and Lorne Fitch, award winning conservation biologist. The conference will also host a panel of young and seasoned farmers including Takota Coen, Don Ruzicka, and Brenda Barritt, who will share their land ethic in practice. R ou nd t able discussions will be an important part of the conference and will encourage all participants to further the conversation and envision how we might collectively create a community land ethic.

All who are interested in the conference are welcome to join us on November 1 in the evening and all day on Saturday the 2nd, and to take part and contribute their voices to the conversation. Whether or not you are able to attend, please register or connect with us on our website ( which has many Augustana students, community members, and others sharing their thoughts on connection to place, community, and spirituality.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER, October 1, 2013 – Page 8

Berdie Fowler, co-founder of The Camrose Booster, passes away at the age of 93 By Diane Hutchinson

With deep sadness, we announce the death of B.H. (Berdie) Fowler, co-founder of The Camrose Booster, on September 24, 2013, at the age of 93 years. Born to parents Lester and Lilian Anderson on July 1, 1920, Berdie was the first of what became a family of three daughters. Her sister Edna was born in 1921 and Doris arrived in 1931. Berdie and her sisters enjoyed a rural upbringing on the family farm near Bittern Lake. Their father was a registered seed grower and from both their parents the girls learned to be careful, particular, precise and hard working, with a very strong sense of ethics and morals. Berdie had fond memories of her mother reading to her and of her dad encouraging her as she did homework in the kitchen, which led to a lifelong passion for education and literacy. Even though Berdie's father had no formal education and her mother had only Grade III, education was a priority in the Anderson family. After receiving all that was available at the one-room schoolhouse near their home, Berdie, age 15, and Edna, at 13, were moved to their own little suite in Camrose to finish their education. Both ultimately graduated from Grade XII, an achievement far from the norm at the time, especially for girls. Berdie went on to complete a Business program at Camrose Lutheran College and then took the job of secretary to the school's principal, Chester Ronning. Throughout her life, Berdie greatly admired Dr. Ronning and his many contributions. Christened Bertha Helen by her parents, the nickname Berdie was bestowed upon her during her school years and stayed with her until the end of her life. While at CLC Berdie began dating the great love of her life, Wm. F. (Bill) Fowler, who was later employed in the circulation department of The Edmonton Journal. The pair were married two weeks before the bride’s 20th birthday, in June of 1940, and embarked on what turned out to be a 51-year partnership. In the years between 1940 and 1945, Bill served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After receiving his wings, he was sent to Instructor School and for the next few years was an elementary flying instructor. He was stationed at various bases throughout Canada. Berdie travelled with him, living in rental accommodations in Regina and Trenton with first one child and then two (Bonnie and Blain). When Bill was shipped overseas to England to join Bomber

Command in 1944, Berdie and the children returned to Camrose to stay with her parents and youngest sister Doris. A son was born within a year of Bill’s return from the war, but lived only a few hours. Then daughter Beth and son Bruce arrived, creating the “perfect family” of four children – two daughters, two sons and two parents whose names all started with B. In 1952, that family established The Camrose Booster. Bill was the public face of the weekly publication, visiting other local business owners to sell advertising and promote the benefits of being part of a local paper. Berdie worked in various capacities behind the scenes, ensuring the paper was produced with accuracy and efficiency – a role she continued for over 60 years, until just a few weeks before her death. Berdie’s expectation of careful, high quality work provided the foundation for her children’s success, and allowed countless Booster employees to hone their skills and become experts in their field. Berdie herself won numerous awards for her Pen Points columns over the years, most recently in September of 2012, when a column she wrote was awarded second place in the annual Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) competition. She was also the recipient of one of the IFPA’s most coveted awards, the Joseph M. Sklenar Editorial Award of Excellence. Those who followed

her column saw Berdie as someone who was deeply committed to her community and to making the world a better place. She believed in treating everyone with dignity and respect, developing opinions based on solid facts and presenting all sides of an issue. Her weekly column provided a thoughtful and balanced examination of many current world events or issues. In the early decades of the Booster, Berdie maintained responsibility for running a household and guiding the upbringing of the Fowler children. Over the years she also played a significant role in the development of the community in which she and her family lived. During the 1960s, Berdie assisted with the creation of the Camrose Children’s Centre, the first rural childcare facility in Alberta, in order to ensure that working mothers were able to access quality child care. She also supported and assisted the Burgess family in opening a school for mentally or physically challenged children, who at that time were not welcome in the public school system. In addition, she assisted in the creation of work experience programs for students at Camrose Composite High School and was an active member of the local health unit board. Berdie become involved in the Camrose Chamber of Commerce, joining the Board of Directors in the late 60s. By 1972 she was the group’s President – the first woman in Alberta to be appointed

to such a role and one of just two women in Canada that year. Later, she was also active in the provincial Chamber and served a term on Camrose City Council. In the mid 70s Berdie became the first woman to represent Alberta on a trade mission to Europe and was also the first woman to be appointed to the Board of the Alberta Opportunity Company, an Alberta government lending agency with a focus on supporting new businesses that could not obtain financial support from traditional sources. She was also appointed as a member of the Alberta Apprenticeship Board. Although Berdie acknowledged that some of these appointments were made because she was one of only a small number of active business women at that time, Berdie made certain, through careful research, hard work and attention to detail, that it was her skill and not her gender that kept her at the table. She served on the AOC board for 16 years. Other local organizations also benefitted from her involvement. For several years she held positions on her church council and assisted with groups to which her children belonged. In later years, Berdie was part of the Business and Professional Women’s Club, a member of the Camrose Women’s Shelter Society and also a founding member of the local Crime Stoppers board. In recognition of her dedication to the community, Berdie was the recipient of a number of awards and special acknowledgements. Berdie was honoured to be inducted into the Alberta Order of Excellence, presented with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, a Canada 125 medal, an Alberta Centennial Medal and an Honourary Life Membership in the Camrose Chamber of Commerce and as well as being named (along with Bill) a “Community Builder” by the Battle River Community Foundation. In 2008 she received an Honourary Doctorate of Laws from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. Upon Bill’s retirement from the Booster in 1975, the couple began to take holidays to destinations throughout the world and over the next decade visited Asia, Australia / New Zealand, the Bahamas, Europe, Hawaii and Phoenix. For their 50th wedding anniversary in 1990, the couple’s children and grandchildren sent them on a trip to Inuvik. Following Bill’s death in 1991, Berdie also travelled with her children to such destinations as Vienna, Tuscany, London and Honolulu. Being able to see the world was a dream

come true for her, gave her a broad perspective and helped her develop a strong sense of gratitude for all she had in life. When she had a difficult day, she often said things like, “well, it could be worse. I could live in Bangladesh” (or some other country that was facing serious issues). Not surprisingly, Berdie was a great lover of words and language. She was always grammatically correct, always well spoken and delighted in trouncing her daughters at Scrabble. Family was the centre of Berdie’s life. She always told her children and grandchildren that she felt blessed by being part of a multi-generational family, with whom she was able to spend lots of quality time. She was the matriarch of her brood for decades and attended the birthday parties, school concerts, soccer games, theatre productions and other events of four generations of descendents. She always told them she was so very lucky to have them all in her life. They felt equally blessed. No discussion of Berdie would be complete without a discussion about Bill. Because that’s what they were to each other – the piece that completed the other. Bill and Berdie were a great example of a couple who loved and respected each other, no matter what. They could disagree and were even known to vote for different parties in an election, but they never let their opinions about an issue cloud their feelings for each other. They were deeply in love and also great friends. They loved music and dancing together was one of their favorite things. On their 50th wedding anniversary, they danced the whole evening and, during Berdie’s last few days, some of their favorite dance music played in the background in her hospital room. Berdie Fowler lived a life based on service and gratitude. In a note written in the spring of 2013, she shared the following thought: “Sooner or later, I will die. I will go at peace and filled with love and gratitude for my family, friends and so many others that have enriched my life.” Throughout the Camrose area, Berdie Fowler’s presence will be missed. Last week, when a family member shared news of Berdie’s death with staff at a local business, someone replied “what will we do without the matriarch of the community?” Much as she felt enriched by those around her, the community has clearly been enriched by her many and varied contributions and she will long be remembered.

Getting Canada's energy resources to other markets Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot

In our riding, many constituents know about our Conservative government’s efforts since 2006 to expand international markets for our agricultural products. In addition to agriculture, which continues to be a major industry in Alberta, natural resources and energy exports are full of potential. That’s why we have been successful cultivating new markets and enhancing existing ones. We know that we are an ‘exporting’ nation and it is challenging to increase our exports in an increasingly ‘global’ economy. Our government’s focus is on what matters to Canadians – jobs, growth and long-term prosperity. In our region of Alberta, agriculture continues to be our major industry. In Alberta, energy is our major export. In Ottawa, our government is aggressively working to enhance Canada’s position as a stable, secure and environmentally responsible energy supplier to North America and the world. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver is responsible for developing new markets for Canada’s energy products. Recently, the Minister delivered the keynote speech at the Global Energy Summit in New York City. Minister Oliver emphasized the pivotal contribution that Canada’s diverse energy mix can make to North America’s economic prosperity, while also allowing us to make a significant contribution to global energy security and economic stability.

The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Grain options

A response to Mr. Hendrickson's letter of Sept. 17. While Mr. Hendrickson has some interesting comments his facts are incorrect. He implies that with the Canadian Wheat Board in place farmers had no say in how their grain was sold. There were elections every four years at which candidates expressed opinions on the discontinuance of the CWB. The majority of farmers consistently voted to stay with the single desk system because that was their choice. The Canadian Wheat Board only sold wheat for human consumption and malt barley. All other grades and grains as well as oilseeds and pulses were not under the purvey of the CWB and farmers could sell at their pleasure. So it was not that those who hated the CWB had no options. Mr. Hendrickson also mentions that I had a vote in this matter. By this comment I assume he refers to the last general election which was won by the Conservative Party, whose ideology and policy was to eliminate the CWB. Mr. Hendrickson must know that farmers make up less than ywo per cent of the

population so their impact on voting outcomes is minimal. This means that, if one holds this premise, non-farmers forced farmers to sell their grain a certain way. This is definitely not a decision made by farmers for farmers but this idea shows that Mr. Hendrickson has bought into the idea of the Conservative Party's spin doctors that they have a "mandate" and gets to the crux of this matter. In any other situation a "mandate" of 39 per cent in favour and 61 per cent opposed would be considered no mandate or a very feeble mandate, but this is the thought trotted out. To accept the interpretation of mandate as used by the Conservative Party it would mean that the last general election was about electing a four-year dictatorship and not a democratic institution. I would suggest the election gave this party the same mandate given to previous governments and that is a mandate to manage a government of the people, by the people and for the people and was not a mandate to shove their ideology down our throats. It is unfortunate that this whole wheat board issue is deemed by many to be an agricultural issue only but the main contention and problem is how this process of dissolving the CWB took place. This government took a democratically elected board and fired the directors and dissolved the Act created by a previous government and then "took" the assets bought and paid for by farmers without any compensation to this point and no suggestion that any will be forthcoming. These assets include an eight story office building in Downtown Winnipeg, about 1,500 rail

cars, a down payment on a Lake Freighter and other items. Could this happen in Canada? It has! As usual things are sometimes not as simple as they would seem but as a famous person once said, "continuous vigilance is the price of democracy." Let's insist on our right to democracy and ethical behaviour by our governments. Horst Schreiber Ohaton Election race

This municipal election of 2013 is going to be very different from other years. This year there are going to be three people going after the mayor's chair. The three candidates are, Russell Hawkins, Norm Mayer and Mike Morris. This is a great opportunity for all of us to have a say to who should be the next mayor. I do know that many people have said to me or to others that they do not vote because they have no idea about politics. Now, this could be because many people do not believe that city council has any effect on their lives. The policies that the city council decides on does have a huge effect on our lives here in this great city. I do encourage everybody to vote for a mayor. I was very sad to hear that there are five city councilors who will not be running in this election. One of the men who I am very sad to see not run is John Howard. I do understand why he will not be returning to city council. He is a very busy man. I do respect him and thank him for his dedication which he has shown to this community for the past many years. One of the things that I do appreciate about John is how open and honest that he

is. When he has the time, he is always willing to chat with anybody about whatever they have on their minds. I really do respect him a lot. I have asked his opinion on every subject from political parties to what should be done on different issues that has affected our city. He really gave me a lot of moral support when I released my first book last January. His support gave me the confidence for me to start writing my second book with a business partner/ writer. This book should be released by September 2014. I have also noticed that there are 20 candidates now seeking city council seats. Now everybody who is over eighteen years of age can cast a vote. You do not have to be an expert on politics. So, if any of you are free on Oct. 2, please look into attending the candidate forum during the Camrose Chamber of Commence business luncheon from 11.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please check out the candidates and decide who does represent your vision for this fine city. I am aware that not everybody is available to attend. I do have to work so to me that is a huge disappointment. I just would like to encourage everybody who can, please make an effort to be at that forum. Everybody who is of age can cast their vote. It is up to everyone of you to exercise your right to do so. I do know that I sure do plan on casting my vote on election day. I sure hope that you will too. Lorne W.P Vanderwoude, Camrose

Traffic calming Continued from page 4

Kids' Campus assistant director Suzanne Dumont told council the report on the drop off and pick up has been skewed a bit in the wrong direction. "We can make accommodation for parking stalls. There is parking in the rear and there is parking across at what was Gardner College (now the Open Door), and that is where those 17 stalls were to come from. As far as what was supposed to be done with that in paper I am not sure." Dumont said that no matter where the day care directs parents to drop off their children, there are still 80 children coming through its doors Monday to Friday 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. "It is almost 100 children going through when you count the numbers that are going in the morning, going in the afternoon, coming after school. We have seen a lot of accidents right in front of the day care. We have had numerous motorists buzzing by and we have children get out into the roadway, whether or not they are leaving to a vehicle, they have just gotten away from their parent. There are at least three instances I have seen myself where children have ended up in the roadway in front of cars, which thankfully have not been speeding through. I think that just one piece that is getting missed is the fact that drivers are oblivious to the fact that there is a day care centre here, that there is a high volume of children coming and going and that there does need to be more caution. It is very quick. Everyone knows they can zip down there with no lights, and that is just what is happening. I just want to make sure that is not missed in the discussion."

Celebrating a Century of life long aChievement

James & Hilda dale 4-H Members For 60+ Years Saskatchewan

Enbridge is proud to celebrate 100 years of 4-H in Canada. For over a century 4-H has been helping to bring out the best in Canadians, something James and Hilda Dale have seen a lot of in their 60+ years with the club. James has been a part of the club since 1946, when he joined at the age of 12. Over the years, James and Hilda have seen many club members from their community go on to great success, including their daughter Lisa who earned a doctorate degree and now lives abroad. The Dales are living proof of the positive effect 4-H has on communities and families. After all, when you invest in the potential of youth the rewards can last a lifetime. At Enbridge, we understand that when we invest in organizations like 4-H, we’re helping young Canadians realize their dreams and become the community leaders of tomorrow.

Energy resources to other markets CREATIVE DIRECToR

Continued from page 14

In his speech, he points out that Canada has the resources in place to meet our own needs as well as the growing energy demands of global markets. Canada is well-positioned to help fill the demands for energy resources from countries who need them. In fact, Canada: has the third-largest known oil reserves in the world; has the fifth-largest production of hydroelectricity; is the fifthlargest producer of natural gas; is the second largest producer of uranium; and has the ninth largest installed capacity of wind power. Canada’s approach to the responsible development of natural resources includes supporting jobs, economic growth, environmental protection and the energy security of North America. Our plans also entail reaching

Since0836416 2006, ouradsgovernment has invested more than $10 billion in green infrastructure, energy efficiency, clean energy technologies and the production of cleaner energy and fuels. Most recently, Canadians are considering TransCanada’s Energy East Pipeline Project Proposal. TransCanada has released the Deloitte & Touche LLP report on the job creation and economic benefits of their ‘Energy East’ proposal.

Gordon John Peacock Gordon John Peacock was born in Youngstown, Alberta on July 8, 1917 to John and Lavina Peacock. Gordon, who was the youngest of 10 children, grew up in the Scotfield area. He attended school in Scotfield where he met his life partner, Gladys. On October 18, 1941 Gordon married Gladys Dishan. They spent the first few years of marriage in Calgary. There he trained and worked as a machinist/mechanic in Calgary until he joined the army. After serving in the army, he worked as a trucker. In 1946 Gordon and Gladys settled in Bawlf. There they raised their two daughters, Mary Lou and Lynn. Together with his brother Allen, he bought and ran Peacock Brothers Garage and Bulk Sales; as well, Gordon drove the school bus. During these years, Gordon and Allan bought a farm, where they raised cattle. Later, Gordon and Gladys worked as caretakers at the Bawlf School. In their retirement years, Gladys and Gordon moved to Camrose. Gordon was an active member of the Bawlf community, serving as town councillor, mayor, president of the curling club, and library board member. His many interests included fishing, hunting, golfing, woodworking, playing crib and reading. He loved to travel and enjoyed many camping and fishing trips throughout Alberta and British Columbia. Later, he extended his travelling adventures to many parts of the world including Europe, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Britain, and the Orkney Islands.

Thank You

Kathleen “Kay” Charlotte Reist Kathleen “Kay” Charlotte Reist of Camrose, formerly of Daysland, passed away on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the age of 83 years. Kathleen Charlotte Reist (nee Cole) was born January 15, 1930 in Dodsland, Saskachewan, and was raised near Coleville Saskatchewan during the Great Depression. At 16, Kay followed her sisters Betty and Bernice to Edmonton to finish high school and to help care for her Grandma Conquest (The Red Cross Lady). She soon met Harvey Reist, a pre-med student from Wetaskiwin, and they married in 1951. Gary was born in 1952 and the new family moved to Daysland in 1955. While Harvey practiced medicine, Kay raised her family with great love, encouragement and devotion. They welcomed three more children; Ronald was born in 1956, Bradley in 1960 and Lorene in 1962.   A huge believer in education, Kay pushed and availed her children the opportunities to pursue their interests. While focusing her time on her children and their activities, Kathleen was also dedicated to volunteering in her community. She held leadership positions in the United Church Women’s Assn., CGIT, the Agricultural Society, the Hospital Auxiliary, Daysland School Board, and the Aging in Place Society. In the latter foundation, Kathleen was instrumental in the development and naming of “Providence House”.   Having been a proud and supportive mother, Kay spent her last years being an equally amazing grandmother; spoiling and doting and Layne, Miranda, Jared, Chelsey, Jenna, Addison and Sidney.  In 2001, the Reist family met in Emerald Lake to celebrate Kay and Harvey’s 50th anniversary.  While Kay was already showing signs of illness, the following few years proved to be devastating as dementia settled in. Kay fought as hard as humanly possible, but faced with a particularly fast moving form of Alzheimer’s disease, she soon required a hospital setting to meet her needs.  Kay will be lovingly remembered  by her children Gary (Marietta) of Edmonton, Ron (Veronica) of Olds, Bradley (Carolina) of Cranbrook, BC, and Lorene Reist of Toronto, ON; eight grandchildren Layne (Vicky) Cunningham, Miranda (Colin) Gustafson, Jared (Meaghan) Chelsey, Jenna ( Marcus) Weinkauf, Addison and Sidney; eight great-grandchildren; one brother Ron Cole of Coalhurst, AB; two sisters Joan (Bill) Adair of Ladysmith, BC, and Linda (Dave) Miller of Coleville, SK; sister-in-law Beatrice Bolen; and brother-inlaw Art Stengal.  Kay was predeceased by her husband Dr. Harvey Allan Reist; one brother Les Cole; three sisters Betty Aucoin, Mary Cole and Bernice Smith; sister-in-law Donna Stengal; and brother-in-law George Bolen. A Funeral Service will be held on 2:00 p.m., Saturday, October 5, 2013 from Daysland Knox Church with Rev. Alan Richards officiating. Private Family inurnment will take place in Daysland Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to join the family for fellowship and refreshments at Daysland Community Hall immediately following the service.  If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Alzheimer’s Society.

There are just not enough words to say thank you to all the people who supported our family through a very difficult time in our lives. I was trying to put words in individual thank you cards and realized it would be an insurmountable job because there were so many of you who were here for us. First of all, thank you to the 911 operator Howard Bouck who kept me sane until the EMS and Fire August 2, 1952 – August 30, 2013 Department arrived. While waiting for the emergency responders to arrive, our neighbour and close friend Enos Lamprecht, along with his grandson Braeden Korchinski, came by to borrow a truck. A very special thank you to Enos as he stayed with Howard and also to Braeden for being my right hand while the EMS did their job. Thank you to the team of emergency responders for organizing STARS to land on our property and stabilize Howard to be ready for transport to the U of A Hospital. A big thank you to the doctors and nurses at the Firefighters’ Burn Unit in Edmonton who gave such great care to Howard. He also wanted me to go buy them all coffee. Karmyn Johnson, thank you for coming immediately and taking me to the hospital, and for all the extras you continue to do. Thank you to Pastor Ed for spending that first evening with the family, and to Barry and Shannon DeMaere for meeting us there and supporting us through those difficult days. Thank you to Bev and Sheri for coming and praying with us and Howard as he went through his surgeries, and to Ron and Leanne Bouck for looking after so many details for me throughout this whole ordeal. Thank you to my sons Travis and Tyler for dropping everything to come and stand together as we waited for the doctors and many surgeries. Thank you to Carly and Asa for holding things together on the home front so they would not have worry about anything at home. It was such a blessing when both Carly and Asa were able to join us. During Howard’s six weeks in the hospital, we were blessed by so many of our friends, families, community and church families. Many of you sent meals, gave us gift cards, prayed unceasingly for us, and looked after Erik and Anders so their parents could be at the hospital with us. I can’t thank the 150 people enough who came out to the farm on August 10 to get all Howard’s projects done that he never got to finish. A special thank you to the businesses that donated supplies for those projects and who also offered their own time. That was a powerful day, just seeing you all there as you showed us how much you were all pulling for Howard, and we could see the kind of man he was to others. To see each of you drive up our driveway, to take a whole day and generously give of yourselves was overwhelming. To Travis and Asa and all the others who did the prep work prior to that day, a big thank you is extended. There were many others who gave generously for that day to be a success. I would love to list each of you separately, but am afraid I might miss some of you … I know you know who you are. There were 20 more days God gave us with Howard after that work day. Days that I will always remember. The best day was when Howard got the speaking piece put on his ventilator that allowed us to hear his voice. We could hear him actually speak the words, “I love you”; words we will always cherish. Tyler and Carly were unable to be with us for this whole journey due to hockey season starting, but Ty had set up an iPad and we could Facetime them so they could see and talk to Howard. It was very difficult for them to be away, but they also knew it was what Howard wanted. On August 30, 2013, Howard passed away after his fourth surgery. Through all this, I have always felt the hand of the Lord taking care of us. Howard’s life was celebrated by about 1,000 people – what does that say? What a great husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, cousin and friend he was. He touched many lives over his short 61 years, and I can only say for me and my family, he will be missed so much. A big thank you to our neighbours and friends who have so willingly been here for the harvest and any other things we have needed. Thank you to all of you who stood by us and with us as we have gone through and will continue to go through the tremendous loss of this great man. – Phyllis Bouck

Council receives update on Bailey Theatre By Dan Jensen

To borrow and modify a phrase from the late Mark Twain, any reports on the demise of the Bailey Theatre "have been considerably exaggerated." "There were some reports of doom and gloom but the Bailey is very much alive and well," said Bailey Theatre Society spokesperson Jeremy Mouat in a presentation to Camrose City council Sept. 16. Mouat said the Bailey Theatre had three very successful fundraising events during the summer just past, including a 50/50 draw during Jaywalkers' Jamboree, an auction at Big Valley Jamboree, and just recently, a fall harvest supper. "There were nearly 100 corporate and private sponsors that helped make the harvest supper a great success, in addition to the number of volunteers who participated. A number of wellplaced Edmontonians made it to the event and we raised some serious money as a consequence." Mouat said the Bailey Theatre has been staging two or three events per week while partnering with organizations like the Camrose Arts Society, Camrose Founders Days, Rose City Roots Society and the Camrose Country Opry. "We have brought in acts from across Alberta, other provinces, and the U.S. We are planning to increase our dramatic presentations. We want to add jazz and pop music events, and we are going to continue to build on family movie nights. We are establishing improv nights with the university drama club and are planning for more corporate rentals." Mouat said that during the fiscal year that just ended the Bailey Theatre Society was able to generate

almost $550,000 in revenue, including $125,000 in private donations and over $100,000 in provincial grants. "Unfortunately we had to apply a little over $112,000 of that revenue to service our $600,000 mortgage. Originally we didn't plan for that. Originally the feasibility studies and the operating plans we put in place were to have a building that was mortgage free, and indeed, with a $500,000 endowment which we saw as absolutely critical to getting off to a good start with the theatre. But because of the need to comply with a very strict completion deadline (as dictated by a federal grant) we had to borrow money to get things done in a hurry. We also had to use a $200,000 commitment from one of more major sponsors, Frank MacInnis, to guarantee a loan they had made. So we ended up beginning operations with a mortgage and without an endowment fund." Mouat said the Bailey Theatre Society still has the challenge in the short and the medium term of dealing with the mortgage, the cash flow and any difficulties that can arise as a consequence of that mortgage. "We often find ourselves lacking the necessary bucks to make down payments to book future performances. Typically, performers will want a deposit on the books often six months or even longer in advance of their appearance, and it is sometimes a bit of a challenge for us to come up with those funds." Mouat said the Bailey Theatre Society is planning to put into place devices that will ensure the ongoing operation of the theatre. "We lack an endowment fund but our goal is to establish one over the

long term. We are hoping to receive significant donations from private donors that will be invested to generate the additional revenue that we know we will need for operations." Mouat said the Bailey Theatre Society feels confident it will be able to continue with a very successful fundraising program. "The big deal for us of course is to have the mortgage paid off, which would reduce our operating costs by about $45,000. It would also immediately release the $200,000 from the Frank MacInnis Foundation and give us money in the bank that would allow us to operate on a break even basis into the forseeable future." Mouat said the Bailey Theatre Society believes it and the new performing arts centre can really help put Camrose on the map as a cultural destination. "It is exciting to think that we are going to have two quite different but really wonderful cultural facilities in Camrose." Mayor Marshall Chalmers told Mouat he is enthused to hear of the initiatives the Bailey Theatre Society have taken to make the theatre work. "It sounds like you are on the road to success," said Chalmers. "I really appreciate the efforts you are showing." Councillor Darryl said he was a proponent of the Bailey Theatre when people were ready to bulldoze it down. "To me it was a diamond in the rough, it was a historical site that I believed was worth saving." Shillington commended the Bailey Theatre Society for having a vision and not giving up when things looked bleak. "Camrose should stand up and applaud you folks

for creating such an amazing jewel in our community. There isn't a week that goes by where an outside resident has not made a comment about the Bailey Theatre, whether they are walking by it or have heard about it or have enjoyed some entertainment. To me you guys were always pioneering arts, culture and entertainment in the community, not just for Friday and Saturday night but on Tuesday night for goodness sake. You guys did a lot of pioneering and, to me, laid the tracks for the Camrose Performing Arts Centre. I think down the road you will look like geniuses." Councillor Max Lindstrand applauded the Bailey Theatre Society for offering a wide variety of programs. "This is an amazing community asset and it is refreshing to hear the positiveness of your report," he said. "I am astute enough to know that it has taken a heculean effort on the part of many people to get to the point you are at in in terms of celebrating reasonably good success at this point." Lindstrand added he is delighted to see a collaboration emerging between the Bailey and the Camrose Performing Arts Centre. "I think we should be looking at more than just a collaboration but a really formal collaboration to make both facilities successful." Linstrand encouraged the Bailey Theatre Society to keep the new City council informed as to what it is doing. "Let (council) know your struggles and successes because I think the new council has to commit to helping you and encouraging you in any way to continue the success of the Bailey Theatre."

2014 Ford Explorer Packed full of features

Matt McLeod By Dan Jensen

The 2014 Ford Explorer has arrived at Lamb Ford Sales Camrose. "It has been receiving a lot of positive reviews," said Lamb Ford sales manager Brett Read. "It's a vehicle that is packed full of features." Capable The 2014 Explorer structure is strong and supportive – thanks to high-tech materials and advanced forming technology. For starters, the A and B pillars are constructed of high-strength boron steel for greatly increased roof crush strength. The frontend support structure is constructed using a lightweight composite, which matches the lateral stiffness of magnesium while reducing weight. The easy-to-use Intelligent 4WD system is fully automatic, instantly delivering traction to the wheels with the most traction when wheelslip is detected. The Terrain Management System included with the available Intelligent 4WD system allows you to easily shift on the fly into one of four settings to match the terrain in which you are driving. Normal biases torque to the front wheels and sends it to the rear only as needed. Mud/Ruts

switches the throttle to a more aggressive mode, limits upshifting and desensitizes stability control, allowing the tires to spin as needed. Sand throws maximum torque to the wheels, placing the transmission in lower gears for as long as possible, which allows the wheels to spin aggressively. Grass/gravel/snow places the throttle in a setting to minimize wheel grip. Comfort/convenience The Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. The second row features a 60/40 split-fold-bench, while the third row has a 50/50 splitfolding seat with generous passenger space. Behind the third row there is up to 595 litres of cargo volume. For cargo space on demand, the second and third rows can fold flat for 2,285 litres of cargo room. The power liftgate can be opened and/or closed by pushing the vehicle key fob or pressing a button located on the instrument panel or on the bottom of the tailgate. Additionally, you can program the extension height of the liftgate, which is useful if you park in a space with a low ceiling. The available Remote Start/Automatic Climate Control system provides a comfortable interior. In hot weather conditions,

the cabin is cooled to 22 degrees Celsius. Even the rear defrost/heated mirrors will be activated. Performance The standard 3.5 litre twin independent variable camshaft timing V6 engine in the Explorer can be easily described in two words: no compromise. It delivers an impressive 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. That means you have the power for merging, accelerating and pulling a trailer. The available 2.0 litre EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine combines two different technologies – turbochargiing and twin independent variable cam timing – to deliver the performance of a much larger engine. It churns out 240 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 270 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm. With towing capacity of up to 2,268 kg when properly equipped, the Explorer can haul a boat, camper or trailer. The Class III Trailer Tow package required for towing includes an engine oil cooler and wiring harness. Technology Curve Control will slow you down as much as 16 kmph a second if it senses you are going too fast for a particular curve. Employing throttle reduction and

four-wheel braking intervention, it's always active in helping you maintain control around the curves. Additionally, it can function on dry or wet pavement and is expected to be particularly useful when entering or exiting freeway off- or on-ramps with too much speed. A lane-keeping alert warns you through haptic feedback (a series of steering wheel vibrations that mimic a rumble strip) should the system detect an unintentional lane departure. A lane keeping aid actively applies steering torque which directs your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure. The available BLIS with cross-traffic alert uses sensors in the rear quarter panels to monitor your blind spot and will illuminate an alert display on the appropriate exterior mirror if another vehicle is detected there before changing lanes. Adaptive cruise control functions similarly to cruise control but with one exception. When its sensors detect traffic slowing, your vehicle also slows down to maintain your pre-selected gap setting from the

car in front. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes its preset speed. Collision warning with brake support will alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don't react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake. The available rear view camera provides a video image on the centre console screen of the area behind your vehicle. The screen has guides and a zoom feature that help you align your vehicle with a trailer when you want to tow. The available voiceactivated navigation system provides turn-by-turn directions, giving you your choice of fastest, shortest and another option – EcoRoute. In this mode, the navigation system instantly calculates the most fuelefficient route and can help you achieve better fuel economy. You can see the 2014 Ford Explorer at Lamb Ford Sales, 3771-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780672-2411 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Inaugural Scarecrow Festival and Contest Oct. 7 to 19 By Dan Jensen

City Center Camrose and The Camrose Booster will be encouraging everyone to celebrate the fall season when they present the inaugural Scarecrow Festival and Contest Oct. 7 to 19. "We're hoping to create an atmosphere of excitement while showing everything that City Center Camrose has to offer," explained City Center Camrose manager CaroleMay Coty. Festival The City Center Camrose Scarecrow Festival will feature a variety of interesting and fun

activities for the whole family. Cam Vocational Training Association will be conducting barbecues in front of the office of Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Oct. 9 and 16. For the movie buffs, the historic Bailey Theatre will be showing the movie Charlotte's Web on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 15. "We were looking for a fall themed movie for the Festival and thought that Charlotte's Web would be a good fit," said Debbie Thompson, a member of the Festival planning committee.

The Festival will include with a farmers' market/fair in the Brick parking lot from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19. "It should be a fun day with hay rides, a chili cookoff, pie eating contest and sales of local vegetables and crafts," said Coty. "We're also hoping to bring in some buskers to provide entertainment." Contest The Scarecrow Contest is encouraging downtown businesses to create a scarecrow to represent their off ice or store and display it indoors or out.

A Business Choice Award and $150 advertising certificate from The Camrose Booster will be presented to the business with the best scarecrow. "The judging will be done Tuesday, Oct. 8 by a panel of Camrose City council hopefuls," said Coty. The winner of a People's Choice Award and $150 in Downtown Dollars will be announced Oct. 19. Entry forms for the award will be available wherever a scarecrow welcomes and woos customers and tourists. Votes may also be cast on the City Center Camrose Facebook page.

City Center Camrose has been receiving good reaction to the Scarecrow Contest. "There have been quite a few business putting out scarecrows already and there are quite a few others that are thinking about doing so," said Coty. "I would be thrilled if we had 50 per cent of the downtown businesses participating." Businesses that would like help creating a scarecrow are encouraged to call Kristen Hunter at 780-672-2711, Simon Pax at 780-916-2374 or Habitat for Humanity Camrose at 780-672-4484.

Keep your children safe in secured car seats By Colleen Lindholm, Camrose Primary Care Network

Motor vehicle accidents continue to be in the top five causes for children to have injuries or fatalities. When a child is properly restrained in their car seat, it decreases their risk of serious injury or death. With so many different car seats on the market, it can be confusing to navigate through the purchasing of the right car seat and then installing it into your vehicle. The Camrose PCN wants to help point you in the right direction to help you become your own expert on car seat safety for your family. There is a wealth of information and help available on various web sites as well as video’s to help walk you through purchasing and installing infant and children’s car seats. Transport Canada (Government of Canada) offers a comprehensive web site with easy to follow instruction at ca/roadsafety/kids. Another great resource with some easy to follow video instruction can be found at http:// Both web sites will provide you with valuable information and tips on how you can keep your kids as safe as possible in your vehicle. Please note: for forward facing car seats the guidelines state a child should not be placed in a forward facing car seat until they are a minimum of 22 pounds and walking. While parents and caregivers are responsible to do the research, read their car seat and vehicle manuals, and learn how to properly install their car seats, there is additional support through the Camrose PCN Maternal Newborn Clinic.

PCN Maternal Newborn Clinic registered nurse Kari Befus has recently undergone Child Restraint Technician Certification training and is ready to start assisting parents, grandparents and caregivers in ensuring their car seats are installed correctly. Often, parents can be overwhelmed and confused by the proper way to use a car seat. Some of the most common mistakes seen include using a rear-facing only seat as a forward facing seat, turning a child forward facing prior to meeting all three necessary developmental benchmarks, moving a child from a forward facing seat into a booster sooner than is recommended or safe for the child, and not having the car seat’s harness system tight enough, therefore reducing the effectiveness of the seat. As a certified trained child seat technician, Kari will talk about which restraint is appropriate for your child, how to correctly install your child seat in your vehicle, and how to position your child in the child seat. “Prevention through education and collaboration will be the focus with rolling out this program into our community,” said Befus. Your inspection may take up to an hour and it’s important you bring your car seat and vehicle manuals if possible, as every vehicle is different in how car seats are installed. To make an appointment, call the Camrose PCN Maternal Newborn Clinic at 780-672-5034. For more information on the Camrose PCN Car Seat Safety program, visit

Jenn Grant will play at the Bailey Theatre.

It is rare to bring exciting young award winning talented performers to the Bailey Theatre as their careers peak. However, Camrose will have the honour to hear two such musicians on the same night. On Saturday, Oct. 5, Juno nominee Jenn Grant will bring her Nova Scotia style of pop music to open for well travelled Canadian singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith. Jenn will begin her 2013 fall 17-stop tour in early October, including dates with Ron Sexsmith. She has released four albums to her credit. Her most recent, and first US released record, The Beautiful Wild, is a departure from the giddy blush of her previous album Honeymoon Punch that won the ECMA pop recording of the year. "I've been writing a lot and after the tour I want to start recording a new album in November. My husband producers the last two and we just built a recording studio at home, so will be working on that," said Jenn, on her fall plans. Continued on page 26

Culture Days celebrated across Alberta last weekend By Dan Jensen

Camrose residents joined their fellow Albertans in celebrating their rich heritage during the annual Culture Days celebration this past weekend. "Camrose has always

had great events going on every year during Culture Days and this year was no exception," said Alberta Culture Minister Heather Klimchuk. "It was just amazing some of the things that were going on in the city."

Alberta Culture Days has grown from a one day event started in 2008 as Alberta Arts Days to a three day celebration is being copied in other parts of Canada. In 2012, thousands of Albertans discovered, expe-

rienced and celebrated their artistic sector heritage, cultural diversity and provincial pride through over 1,200 events. "It's a day when museums and cultural sites open

free of charge," said Klimchuk. Camrose is one of several host celebration sites which received $5,000 in provincial funding for its Culture Days celebration.

If you want to raise funds for your team, club or group, a Pub Night in the Tap Room can be very successful. “Our Dueling Pianos show was really successful. We chose the Norsemen Inn because the venue is wide open, the PA and lighting system worked out well for us. Sean and his staff were accommodating to us and they went over and above what was expected.” – Camrose KidSport president Dean Threinen. “Our Tap Room Pub Night at the Norsemen Inn proved to be a great fund-raiser for our team, as well as a terrific bonding experience for our parent group. Together, we raised over $15,000 for the Camrose Minor Midget Vikings.” – team manager Trevor Vinet.

Arts receives festival funds Continued from page 23

"The money allows the recipients to do some pretty cool programming," said Klimchuk. "We had a lot of professional musicians performing this year and we want to pay them for their work." Klimchuk said it is important that all Albertans celebrate their culture. "It is a way of strengthening our communities and recognizing the many new people who are coming into our province every year." Klimchuk had a meeting with local arts groups in

which she encouraged them to come together in a collaborative manager to support arts projects. Albertans define culture in a broad sense to include not only the arts but also heritage, sport and recreation, and the natural environment. The Conference Board of Canada estimates the economic footprint of Canada's cultural sector was $84.6 billion in 2007, 7.4 per cent of Canada's GDP. Alberta's cultural sector represents approximately three per cent of provincial GDP and employment.

"It's been a great process on how to learn to make records. I'm growing as a writer and really enjoy it. I'm excited to be able to play with Ron." On Jenn's new album, her prismatic, iridescent voice continues to sparkle over adventurous layers of harp, sitar and flute. Her intuitive ability to express emotion has helped to define her as one of Canada’s premiere vocalists. "I try not to play too much new material, although I would like to. I'll play a few songs, but I will play songs from all of my records because people want to hear their old favourites," Jenn added. "I think it's fair to play both songs the audience wants to hear and songs I want to perform." She has performed across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia and has shared the stage alongside many of her favorite artists including Kathleen Edwards, Hayden, Hey Rosetta! Feist, The Great Lake Swimmers, The Weakerthans, and Henry Wagons (Australia). "I've been a fan of Ron's music forever. I have all of his records and listen to them all. I've admired him and have always wanted to go on tour with him, so this is exciting for me," said Jenn. "It's a huge honour and I'm looking forward to it. I like his songs and voice because they have an intimate quality." Jenn is happy to appear in Camrose for the first time and at the Bailey Theatre. "I like all kinds of different shows and venues, but I like to play in beautiful old rooms with a wonderful audience. You couldn't ask for more. I love coming to the prairies and the big open sky. It's a good chance to meet people and perform for people that I haven't before." Ron Sexsmith

Ron's acoustic, pop and folk sound won acclaim not from only critics, but from fellow performers like Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, and John Hiatt, who initially inspired Sexsmith to become a musician. Although Ron started his first band at the age of 14, he decided to focus his attention on becoming a songwriter. After moving to the Toronto area, Sexsmith formed the Uncool and began issuing his own material in 1985 with the cassette Out of the Duff, followed a year later by There's a Way. His next release was 1991's Grand Opera Lane, recorded by Blue Rodeo's Bob Wiseman. Ron has 11 albums. His latest is entitled, Forever Endeavour this year.

Smith and Mason to debate in Camrose By Murray Green


Cathel Books in Camrose celebrated its 10th anniversary Aug. 10 to 17 by conducting a draw for 10 $100 book certificates. Top photo: Cathel Books owner Pat Westergard (right) presents book certificates to (left to right) Teresa Rafters, Rachel Simmet and Joey Uglem. Unable to attend to accet their certificates were Brenda Lee and Pam Sweet. Bottom photo: representatives from the five winning schools were: Gordon Thompson, Hardisty School, Cordelia Tindall, Jack Stuart School in Camrose, Judy Schielke, New Norway School, and Don Hoffman, from Tofield Schools. Hartland Colony School was unable to send a representative to accept the prize.

With the provincial government going deeper into debt, the opposition Wildrose and NDP leaders are touring universities and colleges to explain what the future holds for residents in Alberta. After a successful debate series debut at the University of Alberta and another in Medicine Hat, Wildrose leader Danielle Smith announced two new dates, bringing the total number of debates between Smith and NDP leader Brian Mason to eight. Smith and Mason will now debate at the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus in Camrose tonight (Oct. 1) and at Keyano College in Fort McMurray on Oct. 8. The debate series kicked off at the University of Alberta on Sept. 18 with over 400 students in attendance. “The response to these debates that we’ve received from students across Alberta has been tremendous and it’s exciting to see more post-secondary institutions getting on board,” Smith said. “Clearly, there is a real hunger out there amongst the next generation of Alberta’s leaders for an open and honest exchange of ideas about what the province is going to look like once the PC government is defeated.” The University of Augustana Politics Club is hosting the event. Augustana wanted to be part of the series for the students and the community. “The interest in this series keeps growing and we’re happy to bring the debate to two more colleges,” said Mason. “Obviously, there’s a real desire for an alternative to the PCs’ out-of-touch approach to politics.” Topics the leaders will discuss include revenue and expenses, the economy, public service delivery and the overall political landscape in Alberta. “As we debate ideas, Wildrose will continue to put forward a vision of a new government that respects tax dollars, eliminates waste and mismanagement, and focuses on delivering good public services,” Smith said. "We want Albertans far and wide to know that a post-PC Alberta is coming,” said Mason. “It’s time for a New Democratic government, and we’re very happy to bring that message to campuses across the province, including Augustana and Keyano College.” Twitter users are encouraged to follow the debates and participate in them using the hashtag #MASONvSMITH. The debate begins at 7 p.m. on Oct. 1 in the Faith and Life Chapel. Admission is free, but bring a Food Bank donation. The Neighbor Aid Centre Food Bank is in short supply of lunch items and juice boxes for children.

MORRIS, Mike ‘Lefty’ Mayor, City of Camrose


Mike Morris wants to help City move forward By Dan Jensen

Mayoralty candidate Mike Morris is committed to helping the City of Camrose get into a position from which it can move forward. "It is important that every member of council work together in the same direction so that we can help everyone," said Morris. "We have to take care of the entire community, not just certain interest groups." Morris said the City of Camrose is basically a three dressed up as a nine. "We have nice glitz and

glitter in certain areas and we have nice fancy stuff that is coming forward, and that is good. They are all positive things for the long term good of Camrose. But we are ignoring all kinds of issues that need to be addressed and have to be finished. We have a business revitalization zone but, the area from 48 Street east is not that pretty. We have a gravel road in our downtown core for goodness' sake. I challenge anyone to find a city that has any gravel roads in the downtown."

Morris served six years as a member of Camrose City council from 1998 to 2004. "When I left City council I left for family reasons," said Morris. "My son took too much of my time and I could not do the job properly so I made the decision to step down. I felt it was the right decision, just as I feel that the decision I am making now is right. I have had many people who have encouraged me to run." Morris believes that while it is good to look to the outside for new businesses

and industries, economic development – one of his priorities – has to come from within. "We have to use the amenities that we already have and work within the dollars that we have," said Morris. "It can be as simple as bringing extra hockey teams into Camrose to participate in tournaments. We used to be hampered by the fact that we had a shortage of ice surfaces, but now we have three arenas. If we just change the way we do things a little bit Continued on page 31

…Let’s get back to the basics It’s abundantly clear to me that unless citizens and businesses are prepared to dig deep into their own resources and pay even higher levels of taxes, the City of Camrose has to enter a new era of spending. The bulk of our M.S.I. funding (pledged grants from the provincial government) has already been allocated to our City Hall project for the next three years. Local taxes will be counted on for our basic core services. It is my belief that the next City Council and Mayor must focus on fiscal responsibility. I’d be honored to serve you, as your ‘watchdog’ in this regard.

Sims has the time to devote By Murray Green

Val Sims wants Camrose to remain a vibrant, active and lively place to live. By sitting on City council, she feels those things can be accomplished. "I am thankful that I was born and happy to remain in this great city," said Val. "It would be an honour and privilege to serve on council. For the last 20 years, I have thought about being on City council. Now that I am retired, I have the time to devote to serving on council." Camrose is a safe, beautiful city that provides its citizens with an exceptional quality of life. "We can be proud of our community with its parks, walking trials, education, health, recreation, police and spiritual facilities," added Val. "We are lucky to have a great university, Bailey Theatre, quaint shops, railway museum and now a performing arts centre in our midst." However, Camrose has to be more than a beautiful city. "Camrose needs to attract industry and small businesses. When I was teaching, several families that I know of had to move because they could not find jobs that paid enough to support their growing families. We need full time jobs, not just part-time positions," said Val, who taught for more than 30 years in the Battle

Val Sims

River School Division. "Businesses are what help a community grow and be healthy. We could look at the tax laws to attract new businesses." Val feels the City should be supporting local businesses whenever possible. "We have wonderful local businesses and shopping here that help create jobs," she said. "Shopping locally contributes to the development of the city. Money spent here helps Camrose people." Housing is an important issue to Val. "We need more affordable senior housing. By talking to people, I have discovered that some people have moved away because they could not find affordable housing." The big issue of late at City Hall has been money. "We need to be prudent. Our hard earned taxpayer dollars should be spent with

careful deliberation. Budget items need to be carefully evaluated, so that council can make the best possible decision as to what we can or can't afford," she said. Val said we need to be concerned about spending, so we can get our taxes back in line. "We have to save money for future big projects such as road construction, or a water treatment plant. We will be under restraints and this council has to know that going in. We have to understand the difference between wants and needs. We either increase taxes or reduce spending. I'm on the side of reducing spending." Val has sat on numerous boards within the community. She has been involved with the university, teacher's association, Sunday school, Brownies, church council, Heart and Stroke Foundation, DARE and Victim Services, Martha's table, Meals on Wheels, school breakfast program, Grateful Grannies, museums and the community band. "The next four years on council will be about holding the line on spending until some debt has been paid down on the recent projects," said Val. The retired teacher and her husband have three children and a grandson. "Because I have sat on several boards, it has giv-

“As a councillor, I’d be as conservative with city dollars as I am with my own money.” Prudent spending – essential as almost never before in Camrose. I, for one, believe that as a municipality, we need to be abundantly more cautious about new projects, particularly those which would require borrowed funds. I would focus more on our “core services, i.e. road repairs and basic city infrastructure.

en me some experience to organize things and follow a budget. It covers of variety of topics so I can represent people in broad manner. Yes, we need lawyers and accountants on council, but we also

need people to represent the taxpayers. I can think outside of the box. I am a team player, but I would also represent the people and view both sides of issues and decisions."

Regarding City Spending and Financial Prudence… I firmly believe it’s time to get our heads ‘out of the sand.’


…so let’s quit spending like we are! When city decision-makers spend too much… taxes rise. It’s that simple. I can’t change decisions of previous councils, but I can offer my experience and my promise to significantly curtail spending if I’m elected to Camrose Council going forward. Camrose has clearly embarked on high profile projects that will prove costly to taxpayers in the years ahead. Enough is enough.

I’m all for “Shopping Locally!” As your council member, it will be my mandate to make sure local businesses get a fair shot at city business. I’m convinced that local businesses can efficiently and affordably compete. If we all shop locally, the entire community is rewarded.

Core services – my priority for the next council. Let’s concentrate on quality road repair. Focus on affordable water treatment options, essential services and, for a change, let’s scale back plans for any additional high-profile projects which would only be possible with increased levels of taxation. I’ve succeeded in private business my entire adult life. I think a city needs to be, and can be, run like a successful business. I humbly ask for your vote.

we can have eight teams in tournaments instead of five. That makes us a hub and gives us an extra 150 people a weekend coming into the city to use our hotels and our restaurants." Morris would also like to see the City of Camrose spend more money with businesses who support the community. "There is a provision in the City purchasing bylaw that allows us to spend up to five per cent more on a project (with a local business) if we choose to do so. Local businesses are the ones who support our service clubs,

our businesses and our restaurants, not some company that comes into town, does the job and goes away. We don't get much from that." Morris feels the taxes in Camrose are extremely high for the services and the roads that we have. "If all our roads were current and paved in gold I could see us having to pay a little more money, but as a rule they are high. There needs to be a hold placed on our spending right now, especially capital projects, until the mayor and the new council can decide the direction we should be going."

Morris feels frustrated with the plan to not use a portion of the new City Hall until the city increases the current number of employees. "I think the City is a long ways away from having 90 employees working out of City Hall. I would like to see if I can convince council to have Camrose Public Library move into that space and then turn what is the current library over to the animal protection society. We need a pound and the library would be a good location. It fits and it is time to move forward."

Battle River School Division trustee hopeful Norm Erickson just wants to do what is best for the students. "To me it has always been about the students," said Erickson, who retired this past spring after 34 years of teaching, all but one of them at Camrose Composite High School. "It is nice to be around young people and feed off their positive energy." Erickson would like to see the school division make compromises when it comes to assessing student performance. "I think there has to be a mix between the old and the new as we bring it in," he said, "so that people are more comfortable with what is happening. Erickson said while there are things about the new assessment system that he really likes, he understands the points that have been raised by the parents. "The school district is pushing for assessment for learning and all those positive things that are great and needed to carry the student further into their education. At the same time, I think parents want a very accurate evaluation of what the student has actually learned. Yes the students want to know what they need to know to continue but, at some point in time they also need to know where they are at and what they can pursue." Erickson would like to see the school division make dedicated efforts to bring back into its fold those students who have left BRSD schools, whether because of

the new assessment system or something else. "I think when you lose students you are jeopardizing the number of programs you can offer," he said. "The district has done a wonderful job with the modernization of facilities and there are a lot of opportunities for the students. I want those opportunities to remain here in Camrose for the students

of Camrose and for the students of the district." Erickson and his wife, Rhonda, have three children – Nathan, Jarret and Ashley – who have attended Battle River School Division schools. "We are absolutely pleased," said Erickson. "We have never had any issues with anything that has happened within the system." Erickson is confident he has the time to devote to the position of trustee. "I wouldn't have put my name forward if I had a full-time job. "The fact I am retired means I have the time to do my homework."

Hawkins wants to explore efficiencies

“The community should be a true partner in education. We need to foster that philosophy.”

“City of Camrose Working for You”

Mayoral candidate Russell Hawkins wants the City of Camrose to take a long hard look at how it is spending the money of its taxpayers.


Cheryl Smith

A Vote for

I have worked and lived in Camrose for the past thirty years and I have dedicated myself to helping Camrose be the “greatest City in Alberta” and to helping the citizens of this City thrive. Camrose is a great place to live and we all need to work together to ensure a prosperous future. The recent decision to build a new City Hall has caused me concern as I believe this community had more important priorities to consider. Projects of this magnitude need careful consideration and the public has the right to participate. Why was a referendum not considered?

is a vote for

I will pledge to work for the citizens of Camrose to ensure that we have an efficiently run and effective City. Our services are excellent and the people of Camrose deserve to be treated with the best service possible. I will work towards this goal.

Battle River School Division

"I believe we have to look at efficiencies and make sure that we are getting the best possible value," explained Hawkins. "If we are going to do something we should do it right. If we have to choose between something that is going to cost a little more and something that is going to cost less but only last half as long we should do the former. There is no point going cheap and spending the money now only to spend that much more to fix it at a later time." Hawkins doesn't expect City of Camrose taxation rates to change unless something can be done to develop a larger industrial base. "I realize it costs money to build industrial parks but that is something at which the new council should be taking a look," said Hawkins. "I am hoping the eight councillors can put their heads together and say this is what the City of Camrose is willing to do to make this happen." Hawkins was not convinced the decision to build a new City Hall was the best one that could have been made. "If you have an accountant on council who says you shouldn't be doing this and is questioning how it should be paid for you should listen to him," said Hawkins. "I think the attitude is indicative of society in general, where you have these young couples taking on $400,000 home mortgages that they are never going to be able to pay off. Too many people view the City of Camrose as being this bank account from which you can just keep drawing." Continued on page 34

Ron Baier Children... Why do we have Catholic schools? • To develop a child’s personal relationship with God

We have an excellent business sector and we need to ensure that our existing and new businesses are treated in a business-friendly manner. Looking at taxation levels is a good way to start this process. The city has had our citizens complete surveys asking what they want for services and infrastructure. Isn’t it time we listened to what the people, who actually pay the freight, have to say? A taste of my Volunteer roles:

• To be educational centers of evangelization

➢ Camrose Tourism Action Committee

• For parents to have their children nurtured in Catholic Christian values.

➢ Camrose Minor Hockey Committee

• To be a light illuminating an otherwise dark world.

➢ City of Camrose Social Planning Committee

• To promote moral and spiritual formation where the mystery and grace of the faith is passed on.

➢ City of Camrose Public Transportation Committee

• To provide places of hope. • To provide role models who incarnate virtues such as faith, compassion, forgiveness, charity and hope. • To help build the Lord’s kingdom of justice and peace. • To involve the search for wisdom as children learn to make good decisions. • To ensure school activities, policies, discipline and rules are based on the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

Though the options of the incoming council will really be limited, due to decisions of council in the recent term, we must move forward, positively, with our limited resources. It’s clear to me our basic city infrastructure needs to be top priority. However, we cannot turn a blind eye to the Aquatic Centre, library, or animal rescue shelter. Clearly tough decisions with limited resources lie ahead. I’d be honored if you see fit to count on me as a business-minded thinker on Council.

Gordon Berg

“A voice for the arts community” Gordon Berg cherishes Camrose’s rich history with the arts. He believes we need to embrace the Bailey Theatre and the new Performing Arts Centre, and find ways to help Camrose’s many dance and drama groups to utilize these facilities more. If elected to city council, Gord would be a strong advocate for the arts, and is also passionate about Camrose’s vast parks system. He is a forward thinker, and is supportive of: the new City Hall project, the need for a new swimming pool, upgrading our water treatment facilities, establishing a joint City/County industrial park, an assessment of all the sports fields to determine if they need upgrading and would like to revisit the idea of bringing a public transit system to Camrose. Berg sees an opportunity to lobby the provincial government to have counties share pipeline and power line tax revenues. Through his experiences on many boards and executives, with part of his career spent working for various municipalities in Alberta, Gordon Berg has the knowledge and understanding that is required to be a great representative of the people of Camrose.

“I just want to serve the community in the best way I can.”

On October 21st, vote Gordon Berg for City Councillor.

BERG, Gordon


Hawkins feels that when it is spending money, the City of Camrose should focus on how it can help those who are at the lower end of the income scale and working in the areas of fast food or retail. "The higher earners and the middle class are going to be able to look after themselves regardless," he said. "You can raise, you can double taxes and people are either going to move away or keep paying. It is different if you start taxing somebody who is barely getting by as it is." While he doesn't have previous political experience, Hawkins serves on the City green action and social development committees. "I have worked with City councillors and I have seen how slow things go sometimes," said Hawkins. "I am not under any illusion that I can go in there as a mayor, pound my fist and make things happen in a hurry." As the owner of Camrose Energy and Devonian Contracting, the city's only R2000 licenced builder, Hawkins is strongly committed to protecting the environment through whatever methods possible, whether it be by cutting down on the amount of energy used or moving towards more native grasses and plants that do not require much water and are resistant to drought. "The plants I am thinking of are good for the pollinators – bees and butterflies," he said. "I think you can do that within the existing structure without paying a fortune. If we need to redo a flower bed put in native plants instead." Hawkins agrees with his opponent for the mayor's chair, Norm Mayer, that the City needs to adopt a more customer friendly attitude. "The City employees need to realize they are there to work for the taxpayers," he said. "The taxpayers are not there to serve administration, administration is there to serve the taxpayers." Hawkins was heavily involved this past spring in the construction of the new Rotary Youth Centre at Rudy Swanson Park. "I hurt myself on Oct. 3 of last year – shattered my heal and broke my back, so as I was healing from that when I talked to Ron Grue, who was the Rotary Youth Centre project manager and agreed to help him. I only know of one other person who would be willing to commit to three months of no income full time, and that person is Ron because he was there with me. Nobody else stepped up to do it. I could have gone back to work in April after I received the go ahead from my doctor but I couldn't abandon Ron. I eventually did get some money for the work but there wasn't any expectation that I would. I told the people if they wanted to pay me I would take it but that I wasn't about to demand anything." Hawkins and his wife have lived in Camrose for the last seven years. "We decided when we moved from Devon it was now or never," said Hawkins, who is originally from the Strome area. "We wanted to make sure that once our daughter started school we would live in the same place for 12 or 13 years."

Davidse seeks election as Elk Island trustee By Murray Green

Luisa Davidse is ready to

serve another term on the Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) board of education. She has completed two three-year terms. Starting with this election on Oct. 21, terms will now be four years in length. "I am ready for another four-year commitment, because at the end of the day there are some things that I want to continue on with, such as facilities," said

Luisa Davidse

Luisa. "Because of our high enrollment, I would like Our Lady of Mount Pleasant (OLMP) restructured to give us more space. This is something I have been lobbying for the last six years. However, each year the student numbers increase." EICS asked for more portables, but were denied by Alberta Education. "I would like to see a new school. Camrose is always on the capital plan. We hope it is approved in the next round in 2015," explained Luisa. "It is on the list for modernization, so we continue to do that as well. A new school is something I want to keep working at. It is a continuous job." OLMP currently has about 384 students and St. Patrick has about 407 with pre-kindergarten. "We are over 100 per cent capacity at both OLMP and St. Patrick School," said Luisa. "Our four day week at OLMP has been popular and our high school has been growing. We have also added preschool at St. Patrick." The elementary school has 90 kindergarten students in four classes, so the healthy numbers in the future should be there. "We like to keep our class sizes smaller at the lower levels," said Luisa. The Camrose trustee is eager to serve, promote and fight on behalf of the two local schools on the board that has 16 schools under its umbrella. "First and foremost

the entire board has the concerns of all of the students in mind when making decisions," said Luisa. "The board has worked well together in the past." Elk Island is part of Alberta's public education system, which serves the communities of Camrose, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Strathcona County and Vegreville. The school division enrolls more than 5,800 students. The board of trustees is comprised of seven representatives. Four are from Sherwood Park, and one each from the communities of Camrose, Vegreville and Fort Saskatchewan. Luisa has kept the interests of the Our Lady of Mount Pleasant Catholic School and St. Patrick Catholic School in mind when she votes on board matters. "We work for EICS and all of the schools," said Luisa. "The needs are met for every community. I am the voice for Camrose and I listen to what is being said here. Parents, teachers and students can phone me with issues. If you don't have happy teachers in front of the class, then you are not going to have a happy classroom and that is the most important thing." Trustee Luisa has earned respect by speaking out for her community. "You have to lobby a bit for your community and I'm not afraid to speak up," said Luisa. "I stand up for Camrose staff, students and parents." Luisa lists the school expansion as her priority as she seeks a third term. "By listening to staff and parents, I believe it is a concern," she said. "OLMP is growing and high school students need their own space. That is important when you get to a certain age. By having more space, it would allow the school to offer more choices in curriculum. Right now we concentrate on meeting the needs of our students. We have added sports teams and have students that are very academic. I have nothing but good things to say about our schools." Lusia said the board does a good job in making the most with the funding they have. "When you have only so much money to work with you have to spend it wisely," she added. "We do what is best for the students." EICS is part of Alberta's publicly-funded education system with a mission to develop educational

RE-ELECT MAX LINDSTRAND to City Council on October 21st

I have learned a lot about the affairs of the city. If re-elected, I can continue to make a strong contribution. My experience will be a valuable asset, especially since there will be a high turnover on council.

My priorities for the next term include: - Ensure excellent levels of service, with taxes competitive with other cities. - Encourage growth and development while preserving the beauty of our city. - Provide services to the entire population of Camrose, including housing needs and transportation both within the city and beyond. - Promote the preservation of our environment, including waste reduction and water conservation. - Support the performing arts. It will be a challenge to operate both the Camrose Performing Arts Centre and the Bailey Theatre. A single Arts Council is needed to maintain both facilities. - Review our capital plan in consultation with the citizens of Camrose. The pool and library have been identified as needing attention.

I have enjoyed being actively involved in our community for many years. Now I am asking for your continued support in re-electing me to serve you as City Councillor

For strong, experienced leadership on City Council vote:

LINDSTRAND, Max opportunities in the context of Gospel values. Quality, Catholic education programming for Grades kindergarten to 12 ensures all students' gifts and talents are celebrated and nurtured through lifelong spiritual and personal experiences.

In a faith-based learning environment, students strive towards excellence in state-of-the-art educational facilities. Opportunities abound in academics, athletics, fine arts, and cultural and leadership programs. Through the efforts of caring and

dedicated staff, students become valuable community members – before and after graduation. "I encourage everyone to get out and vote," said Luisa. "I want to continue to do good work for the education system in Camrose."

Smith wants to provide opportunities By Dan Jensen

Cheryl Smith wants to help ensure the Battle River School Division is providing the best possible opportunities for the success of all students. "There are exciting changes coming for Alberta students with regard to high school graduation requirements, curriculum and the set up of the whole high school system," said Smith, who will be seeking a fourth consecutive term as the division representative from city of Camrose in the Oct. 21 election. "I would love to be involved in making those

I’ve enjoyed being part of the process and will proudly be your voice on council for the next four years.

available for our Camrose students." Smith believes students are receiving the flexibility for which they have been asking. "There is an ability for them to start choosing their own directions in terms of their interests and their abilities," she said. Smith feels students in smaller cities like Camrose deserve the same choices and opportunities as those in larger centres. "As the vice president of the Alberta School Board Association I have be able to draw attention to rural education issues, which are not the same as those in the city. I have a strong belief that every child deserves the chance to shine, and when they walk through our school doors it is our job to make sure that happens."

Smith would like to see the Battle River School Board make greater efforts to connect with parents and the community in positive and consultative ways. "The community wants to know and has a right to know that our school system is preparing students to be contributing members of society and are successful when they leave our school system," she said. "We are an inclusive public system and we need to find ways to reach all of our families and all of our students. Parents should expect the acknowledgement that they know their children best and that their views are solicited and valued." Smith feels schools need to help students become globally aware through all of the available technology and become responsible citizens in the midst of online influences – capable of thinking through their own ideas and solutions. "We have to ask questions about the impact of some of the things that are out there without taking away from the tremendous advantages that technology provides, because it (technology) really does, particularly in rural areas, open the world to students." Smith said the boundaries of the city schools need to be looked at and conversations had with community and parents to find solutions to the issue of some schools bursting at the seams while others are at less than capacity. "The population has shifted and our schools need to reflect that." A graduate of from the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Education, Smith has served as chair of the Battle River School Division board of trustees for five years and has worked at promoting healthy schools. She and her husband of 34 years, Ian Smith, have seen four children through schools in the city of Camrose.

Council maintains franchise fees at current levels By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council approved a motion at its Sept. 16 meeting to maintain the 2014 franchise fee rates at current levels. FortisAlberta will pay a franchise fee of six per cent, while Atco Gas will pay a fee of 18 per cent for the use of right of ways for utility infrastructure and to compensate the City for costs associated with maintenance of the City's infrastructure. The fees are passed onto the customers. "Utility franchise fees are collected from all util-

ity customers in the City of Camrose," said a report by City financial services general manager Diane Urkow. "Some of these customers are exempt from property taxes. The franchise fee provides approximately $1,317,500 of revenue from a broader user group." Atco Gas has provided a estimate of 2014 revenue of $800,104, which is a $15,104 increase from the 2013 budget of $785,000. FortisAlberta has estimated 2014 revenue at $571,927, which is a $39,427 increase from the 2013 budget of $532,500.

Urkow said while the impact of the increase in franchise fees to the typical household is not significant, any increase can have a more significant increase on non residential users, including health care facilities, schools, local businesses and industries. Rates were last increased in 2012 from 16 to 18 per cent for the natural gas fee and from five to six per cent for the electrical franchise fee. Contract extension Council also authorized administration to negotiate a one-year contract exten-

sion of the current waste collection and disposal program with BFI (Progressive Waste Solutions). "The option to maintain the status quo with the current waste collection system through a one year contract extension was preferred," said City general manager, infrastructure and planning, Wayne Franklin. "This option would allow the existing residential waste collection programs to mature and further provide those residents who have yet to embrace the programs time to adapt to changes

made in the program over the last couple years." Proclamation Council proclaimed the month of October as breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian women and is a serious disease that will affect 23,800 women, 200 men and their families this year. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation strives to be an effective advocate, a trusted leader, a respectful partner and a catalyst in creating a future without breast cancer.

Fish and Game completes improvements at Pleasure Island

MLA Verlyn Olson cuts a ribbon at Pleasure Island with the help of Camrose and District Fish and Game president Wayne Harde and fish and pond chair Tom Tomaszewski. By Dan Jensen

The Camrose and District Fish and Game Association celebrated the comple-

tion of improvements at the Pleasure Island Fish Pond Sept. 13. "We graded and grav-

elled the laneway into the pond, planted 40 trees, which will be watered for two years, built a new wheelchair

Is Food Controlling You?

Eat like a thin person! At 64 years old, and 319 pounds, my life was looking bleaker and bleaker. It was a struggle to get out of a chair, out of bed, up the stairs, let alone not being able to get in and out of the bath tub for quite some time. I have been overweight most of my life, but with age the combined effects were life altering. To quote Garth Brooks, “I’m much too young to feel this damn old”. I have always loved food, so much so that food was in control. I lived to eat – everything in my life centred around food. With hypnosis, I am now in control and food is no longer the focus of my life. I now eat to live. I eat like a thin person – much smaller portions of good, healthy food. Although assistance with weight loss was my primary reason for hypnosis, the secondary benefits have become just as important and significant. During the week following my first session, I noticed numerous times that I would be smiling for no apparent reason. I felt lighter, but not only with respect to weight. I was finding myself stressed far less frequently, and when stress did creep in, I was able to easily relax and become calm. My sleeping has improved and I am less tired each day.

MLA Verlyn Olson watches as John Boden fishes from the dock at Pleasure Island.

ramp to the fishing area, moved and made one outdoor bathroom more accessible for wheelchairs, built and gravelled a walkway to four fishing stations for wheelchair and foot access, and increased the parking areas," said Camrose and District Fish and Game Association fish and pond chairman Tom Tomaszewski. "We also put in large concrete blocks to close off vehicle access in some areas, updated fencing, landscaped and built a rock garden, rebuilt the stairway to the lower level, painted the camp kitchen, installed an eight compartment purple martin house with winch control, and installed a new four- by eight-foot sign." The association received a grant for $18,222 from the Alberta government which it matched with funds, donations and volunteer help. "With the help of Dan

Nicholls of Nicholls Construction, Ernie Pearson from Pearson Excavating and Scott Sitler from Sit & Enjoy Landscaping and many hours of volunteer help from Fish and Game members we are proud of what we have here today," said Tomaszewski. Projects planned by Camrose and District Fish and Game for Pleasure Island in the future include building seven floating platforms for goose nesting, continuing the walkway all around the pond, building new fishing stations, building and putting up new swallow houses, improving the camp kitchen and installing a security camera system. The Camrose and District Fish and Game Association expressed appreciation to Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson for helping make the grant possible.

Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough

Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and color are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest

Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price

The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible

Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here, to help you get the results you deserve.

Skiers start training By Murray Green

The Camrose Ski Club is getting active, even though it may take some time to have some snow packed trails. The ski club helps with the Junior Vikings triathletes, Jackrabbits and Track Attack athletes. Tim Wintoniw is the new coach at the ski club and for the Augustana Vikings cross-country ski teams. He won a medal at the Canadian Colleges and the University Nordic Championships as an Augustana Viking. Tim is an active ski racer with Team Canada and is preparing for the 2013 World White Water Rafting Championships in New Zealand in November. For the past three years, Tim has been coaching the top skiers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Tim is a passionate and enthusiastic coach. Voksen Vikings is the name of the adult training group (Voksen is the word for adult in Norwegian). The group meets Wednesdays from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the downstairs waxroom of the Stoney Creek Ski Lodge, 5320-40 Avenue. Athletes will start by learning running technique fundamentals and doing some easy jogging. Core strength stability exercises, and an introduction to ski walkingstriding-bounding with ski poles will also be demonstrated. Continued on page 41

Cooper shuts door on Kodiaks By Murray Green

The Calgary Canucks scored twice in the first period and hung on for the rest of the game on Sept. 23. For the second time in three days Canucks' goalie Colin Cooper stole two points away from the Camrose Kodiaks with his brilliant saves. Cooper made all 52 saves to earn a 2-0 shut out, despite Camrose outshooting the Canucks 25-3 in the third period and 52-20 in total. Calgary scored twice within four minutes to provide enough offence. Camrose netminder Devin McDonald made eight of 10 saves before Matt Zentner was sent in to turn away all 10 shots he faced. The Kodiaks picked up their second win of the regular season with a 2-0 victory over the Drayton Valley Thunder on Sept. 21. This time the Kodiaks collected two tallies within four minutes in the first period to pull out the win. Josh Smith, on a power play, and Cam Gotaas added single markers for the two points. Zentner turned away all 24 shots fired in his direction. In the first outing against the Canucks, Camrose out shot them 8-2 in the first period and 31-21, but lost a tough 3-2 decision. Gotaas scored 17 seconds into the contest. After three straight Calgary goals, Camrose connected on a power play late in the third to pull within one. Scott Ferguson scored, but had some help from Dallas Bergstrom and Ryan Huolt. Cooper shone with 29 out of 31 saves for the Canucks. McDonald stopped 18 of 21 shots in the Camrose net. The next home game for the Kodiaks is on Oct. 5 when the Okotoks Oilers are in the Rose City for a 7 p.m. game.

Late goal helps Kings nip Vikings By Murray Green

Not only are the Red Deer Kings hockey team back in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Association, they are ready to take on the best teams head on. After a scoreless opening period, Red Deer broke the deadlock with a Jeff Archibald marker with just over a minute left in the middle frame. The Augustana Vikings fought back when Craig Cornelsen finished a scoring play. However, the momentum came to an abrupt halt when Red Deer's Patrick Martens netted a shot just 16 seconds later. The game ended with the Kings on top 2-1 at the EnCana Arena on Sept. 25 to open the regular season.

Mixed together in landfills, these chemicals can be dangerous – to the workers and to the environment. Camrose Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be held on Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5, 2013 at the PUBLIC WORKS YARDS. Keep your materials in their original containers. If the container is broken or cracked, place it inside a leak-proof package and label it. If you discover jars or cans of unidentified chemicals, take them to the Round-Up and tell a staff person you are unsure of the contents. Any container that cautions about careful use of the product or disposal of the container should be included in the Hazardous Waste Round-Up. All the materials collected at the Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be collected, classified, manifested, packed and transported by trained personnel and taken to the Alberta Special Waste Management Facility near Swan Hills where the waste will be taken for proper treatment and disposal. The cost of treatment will be borne by Alberta Environment. Your cooperation and support of the Camrose Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up is most appreciated. Examples of typical - Adhesives - Aerosols - Ammonia - Art supplies - Bleach - Barbecue starter

household hazardous wastes are: - Metal polish - Cleaning fluids - Oven cleaner - Disinfectants - Pesticides - Drain cleaners - Pharmaceuticals - Flea powder - Photography - Herbicides chemicals - Insecticides

- Rodent poison - Solvents - Swimming pool chemicals - Waxes - Wood preservatives

Vikings send top runners to Calgary By Murray Green The Augustana Vikings sent 17 cross-country runners to the second grand prix event in Calgary, hosted by SAIT on Sept. 21. "The SAIT race was a good test for our teams. We had eight men and nine women run, and we placed fifth for men and seventh for women," said Robert Renman, assistant running coach with the Vikings. "The weather was great for running, and there was a big field of fast runners in the race." In the women's five kilometre Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference run, Marriya Jenkins, of Concordia, continued to dominate the field with a time of under four minutes. Sara Hewitt, of SAIT, and Lesley Koopman, of Grant MacEwan, followed in second and third place. Augustana runner Keely MacCulloch led the local team with a 26th place showing. Taya Hoar came in 32nd, Ilona Gyapay crossed the line in the 35th spot, Brianna Schultz was 37th, Blaze Flewell was 40th and Jennifer Dillion was 41st. Richelle Hoar, Natasha Hepp and Carol Cheung also finished in the top 85 runners. The Vikings were ranked seventh as a team in both the top three and top four runners' category. "We now focus on hitting our trails with some fun hill workout, and then we look forward to the Edmonton race that Concordia hosts on October 5," added Robert. In the men's eight km race, Edwin Kaitany, of Lethbridge, crossed the line in first and was followed by Alex Harding, of Lethbridge, and Devin Woodland, of Red Deer. Hans Asfeldt was the fastest Viking with a time of 3:46. Ryan Burlingame placed 15th, Andrew Jacobs finished in 18th spot, Joedy Dalke ended up 30th, Cam Raynor was 32nd, Matt Martin placed 44th and Nick Lenko was 46th. Augustana finished fourth in the top three runners division and fifth in the top four category amongst university and college teams. The Vikings will enter one more grand prix event at Concordia before hosting the fourth event in Camrose on Oct. 12. The Alberta championships are at Concordia in Edmonton on Oct. 26 and the nationals are in Etobicoke, Ontario on Nov. 9.
