was picked up by countless radio and television stations and played and replayed to the disgust of viewers and listeners throughout the civilized world. No detail of their incredible story was left unreported, and collectively the world cringed at the thought of what Eloise and John Bergen had gone through. Miraculously, both survived. In the weeks following the senseless attacks, the Bergens made press headlines a second time. They announced to the world that despite their barbaric, unimaginable, treatment they had forgiven the thugs who had assaulted and left them on death’s doorstep. John and Eloise had even gone to visit and pray for their captors while they were in prison. This Thanksgiving weekend the Bergens will be in Camrose talking about the power of faith, forgiveness and reconciliation. Their itinerary (revised in recent days) can be found in an advertisement in this issue of The Booster. You can view it on-line at www.camrosechurchofgod.ca, or on the community events link on the City of Camrose website.

The Battle River Community Foundation will be honouring the contributions of Alan and Valerie Fielding at its annual Fall Community Builders dinner Oct. 19. "The Fieldings have worked hard to make our world a better place and do what it takes to make positive change happen," said Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler. "We feel they are very deserving of recognition." Alan and Valerie met in the mid 1960s when they were building a parish house in Germany as part of a World Council of Churches Action Project. After marrying in Switzerland in 1968, they settled in Edmonton, where Alan obtained a law degree and Valerie finished the arts degree she had begun at a Swiss university. The Fieldings moved to Camrose in 1974, where Alan had established a law practice with Harry Gaede the year before. Alan had finished high school in Camrose when his father was transferred to the community as manager of the CIBC. His mother had served as a substitute teacher in Camrose schools. While Alan focused on law, Valerie assisted in the creation of a French language program for kindergarten children. By the late 1970s she had joined the faculty of Augustana as a part-time professor of French. With a short break in service, when the couple's three children were small, she remained with Augustana until 2010. Alan retired from the law firm in 2005. Alan and Valerie have served on the boards of numerous community organizations. Alan is current president of Sahakarini, which undertakes international development projects, and has been a dedicated member of the board for such respected groups as the Battle River Community Foundation, the Battle River Credit Union, and The Bethany Group. He was involved in fundraising for a chapel at Augustana and has been a long-time member of the Rotary Club. Valerie has been involved in Sahakarini as well as the Camrose International Institute (initially called the Camrose One World Centre), the Camrose and District Music Festival, Kaleidoscope for Kids, and Neighbor Aid. Alan and Valerie consider service to others to be an essential part of their lives. Some of that belief stems from their shared Christian roots. "My parents believed in helping others," Alan explains, "and making contributions to the community. They instilled that in me from an early age."

Valerie and Alan Fielding have been important members of the community since 1974.

For Valerie, the emphasis on service comes from a bigger picture, too. "Switzerland always had a focus on helping the broader world," she says. "It was part of my upbringing. Plus, I think the '60s were focused on more global thinking and a spirit of adventure – that played a role too." The Fieldings see the Battle River Community Foundation as helping to facilitate that community support in the long term. Years ago, they established a fund in honour of Alan's parents, Les and Bobbie Fielding, which assists music programs in the local area. They also established their own fund, the Alan and Valerie Fielding Fund, with the proceeds made available to support whatever causes require assistance on an annual basis. Funds raised from the coming Community Builders dinner will be added to that fund. The Fieldings consider the Community Builders dinner to be a chance to bring together a wide range of people who are involved in the activities of the community. "We've been very blessed," says Valerie. "And we want to support our community. There's always a very positive vibe to the tribute dinners. It's lovely to be part of an event with such giving people." David Samm will serve as emcee for the dinner, while speakers will include Harry

Gaede, Dittmar Mundel, Gail Stolee and Alan and Valerie's daughter, Arianne, who lives in Edmonton. The Camrose Community Builders dinner was started by the Battle River Community Foundation eight years ago to honour and celebrate local heroes who have given elbow grease, time and commitment, and shown leadership in making their community a better place. Joe and Phyllis Voytechek were honoured at the first dinner in 2004, followed by Bill and Berdie Fowler in 2005, Red and Fran Elliott in 2006, Arlene and Alver Person in 2007, Bitz O'Riordan in 2008, Bernie and Jeanette Boser in 2009, Dave and Gail Stolee in 2010, and Norman and Betty Mayer in 2011. "Those who accept this honour do so reluctantly, as they do not seek attention for the good works they do," said Battle River Community Foundation director David Ofrim. "They will receive well-deserved accolades but, also, become the targets of some good-natured ribbing. This is a feel-good evening and we very much appreciate the opportunity to trade on their good names." Tickets for the Community Builders dinner, which will be held at the Norsemen Inn, may be purchased from any member of the Battle River Community Foundation board of directors, or by calling the BRCF office at 780-679-0449.

Builders Dinner promises to be fun The Augustana Choir, under the direction of Dr. Ardelle Ries, will be performing in "Surround Sound," at the Community Builders dinner. A live auction conducted by Doug Johnson will feature such items as: beautiful ceramic pottery by Valerie: Christmas Carols at the Fielding home

with Milton Schlosser as guest pianist; a Swiss chocolate cake made by Valerie; a jar of Valerie's home-made jelly (made with local berries hand-picked by Valerie); a home-cooked candlelight gourmet Tuscan dinner for four by Bonnie Anderson (inspired by recent attendance at a cooking school in Tuscany)

at the residence of the Dean of Augustana, to be followed by attendance at the Augustana Christmas Concert as the guests of Dean Berger and his wife, Becky. One-hundred per cent tax receipts will be provided to all successful bidders in the auction.

Students learn Chinese art

By Murray Green

Students at Chester Ronning School shared in the Chinese celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival on Sept. 25. Teacher CiCi Rong, on loan to the school through a cultural exchange, taught students about the arts of Tai Chi, Chinese paper cutting and dough art with help from cultural teachers from the Confucius Institute in Edmonton. "This celebration is popular in China, probably the second largest celebration," explained CiCi. "It is really popular in the north and south of China. This is a good opportunity to share Chinese culture with students, staff and parents. I hope everyone enjoys it." This huge traditional celebration in China is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese Lunar calendar. In the Gregorian calendar that most Canadians use, the actual day falls on Sunday, Sept. 30. "Dough art is more popular in northern China. Tai Chi is used by everyone in the morning and right after lunch to relax, reduce stress and is good exercise," explained CiCi. "The paper cutting is good for the Grades 4 to 6 students." Teacher CiCi planned the cultural experience to teach students about the festival in her Chinese cultural classes. It also falls in line with the Alberta Culture Days that will be celebrated in Camrose on Sept. 28 to 30. "The Mid-Autumn Festival is so important because the moon will be the brightest and fullest on this date. It is a lunar harvest festival and is a public holiday. The Chinese people believe this is very important to them. We exchange wishes, such as, 'May your life always be filled with happy times and may all your wishes come true,'" said CiCi.

Former Camrosian named member of Order of Canada By Dan Jensen

Former Camrose resident Dr. Merril Knudtson received the country's highest civilian honour this past June when he was named a Member of the Order of Canada. Dr. Knudtson has made significant contributions to cardiology and health care. He was one of the first cardiologists in the country to perform a coronary angioplasty, a procedure which helps to open a narrow or blocked artery in the heart. "I did my cardiology training in Atlanta, Georgia, from 1978 to 1981, at a time when this angioplasty procedure was first introduced," said Dr. Knudtson. "Andreas Gruentzig had been recruited from his home in Switzerland where he started this work, and I, along with two others, had the privilege of working with him in learning how to do the procedure. When I was recruited back to the University of Calgary in 1981, where I have been ever since, I was able to introduce the technique to Alberta. We are probably approaching 70 or 80 people who have worked with us and are now located in various parts of the world, not just Canada. It has allowed us to stay involved not only in introducing the technique but in teaching it as well." Dr. Knudtson also created the Alberta Provincial Project for Outcome Assessment in Coronary Heart disease (APPROACH), a database that tracks the long term outcomes of patients with coronary artery disease across Canada. The tool pioneered a way to monitor and electronically record important data such as hospital readmission stats, death rates, and quality of life questionnaires, and currently tracks more than 200,000 patients with chronic heart disease in Alberta.

Photo by Riley Brandt Dr. Merril Knudtson was one of the first cardiologists to perform a coronary angioplasty, a procedure that helps to open a narrow or blocked artery in the heart.

"It really became clear to me early on that the (coronary angioplasty) procedure presented a significant cost to the health care system and that if we were going to be accountable for introducing this new technology we had better start looking in a very critical way at what we were doing. APPROACH is a way of registering every patient who has this procedure and keeping amount of detail about why it was used in each case, but importantly, to follow these people over time to see what their quality of life is, what the mortality is over time, whether they are readmitted to hospital, and whether they need

more procedures and so on. It is of a multi-dimension followup that allows us to track and really identify the patients that seem to benefit the most from this. I think it has helped refine decision making and move this forward in a more financially accountable way." One of only six initiatives in Canada in 2011 to receive a Top Achievement in Health Research Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canadian Medical Association Journal, APPROACH is currently being expanded to include patients from a growing number of other prov-

inces, and is attracting the attention of partners in China who are in discussion to adopt the system for a pilot project in Harbin. "We weren't being particularly evangelical, it is just that, as time passed and through national meetings and other word of mouth, other provinces became aware of what we were doing and visited us and started doing it. At the current time in Canada, virtually every province except Quebec, and even that might change here shortly, is involved in the APPROACH project to a greater or lesser degree."

Dr. Knudtson grew up in Camrose, where his father worked as a mechanic, graduating from the high school program at Camrose Lutheran College in 1962. He still has a sister who makes Camrose her home. "The Camrose Booster has special significance for me because as a youngster I was one of the fortunate young people who was able to work for Booster Bill and deliver some of the papers," said Dr. Knudtson. "Blain Fowler I think was just a year older than I was going through school so I knew the family quite well." From Camrose Lutheran College Dr. Knudtson enrolled at the University of Alberta, where he received his general science training. He then worked as a petroleum lineman for six years before attending medical school at the University of Alberta. He is currently a member of the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta (an entity of the University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services), and a professor in the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences. He also serves as a member of many advisory boards. Dr. Knudtson was surprised when he received word from Governor General David Johnston that he was chosen to receive the award along with former Alberta Premier Ralph Klein, Lois Mitchell and 42 others. "On many levels it was such a validating thing," he said. "To be recognized on that level for your various endeavours is almost hard to believe. My goal has always been to improve patient care by promoting excellence and accountability within the specialty. Hopefully through this announcement other health care workers also will be motivated to follow this pathway to the benefit of their patients."

Draft of economic plan presented to City council By Dan Jensen

City council will be spending some time over the next few weeks reviewing an interim draft economic development plan by Western Sky Management Associates Inc. that will enable sustainable development, diversification and planned progress over the next five years. The draft outlines specific economic and community-based development goals and objectives that were identified through interviews with City councillors, reviews of existing City documents, and sessions with City focus groups. "We're enthused about the opportunity to get into this," said Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers at Camrose City council's Sept. 24 meeting. "We have been wanting to do something for a long time." The draft stresses the need for City council to provide the economic development department with an expanded budget. "Without such resources and commitment it may be difficult to implement the actions of the plan," states the executive summary, "as all community groups and associations are currently bearing the burden of workloads that are already too large to manage."

The draft notes that the quiet and peaceful rural lifestyle of Camrose has been challenged with the influx of new service businesses, neighbours, cultures, activities, demands and values. "The City is somewhat different than it once was, and it now isn't possible to return to its small rural pre-development stages. Nevertheless, at this point in time, the City may be faced with a crucial decision point: should the City actively seek to retain the current status quo, or embrace the new opportunities and challenges that the emerging developments will bring? New growth will require more plans and the associated planning that comes with zoning, regulations and bylaws. While these are necessary to support orderly business, commercial, industrial, institutional and residential development, they do place restrictions on personal freedoms and historical norms practiced in the community." The draft also notes that the retention of the status quo may provide City residents with their current city rural lifestyle, however not without several potential high costs. "The pressure for additional residences and businesses

on land within the City will increase the population and the possibility of conflicts around lifestyle, preferences and community values. The lack of resources due to lack of business and commercial growth will leave the communities challenged to address their current and emerging economic and social challenges." The draft states that the City should prospect for processing businesses in niche markets such as specialty cheeses, jams and jellies, and notes that Camrose has a major advantage over other communities in Alberta as it is a major regional hub with a trading area that extends south and eastward towards the Saskatchewan border. It states as well that the location of Augustana within the city of Camrose presents tremendous opportunity to collaborate with the Faculty on initiatives to entice students to pursue their careers in Camrose upon graduation. "Dramatic evidence of the rural meltdown is that of losing the most talented young people at the same time that their skills are required as farming and industry is changing. The

City can help facilitate linkages between the high school and Augustana and map existing opportunities into regional economic goals." Trends identified in the draft as having the potential to impact the City of Camrose over the next five to ten years are industrial development of the agriculture industry and small manufacturing, continued population growth driven by service, education and industrial development, increased demand for housing, and increased pressures on recreational, environmental and cultural facilities and service. Community assets that are identified include leadership and management skills, social compassion, residential lots and housing for various incomes, little traffic flow pollution, volunteerism, recreation for adults and children, a family atmosphere, and active groups and networks like the University of Alberta Augustana Campus, Tourism Camrose and the Chamber of Commerce. Western Sky Management Associates believes the economic development plan may fulfill its potential through the formulation of a dynamic plan to address the retention of both the present

businesses and new strategies to attract new businesses or innovative industries, as well as the reestablishment of direct communication channels with the City of Camrose and the development of networks with influential, provincial, regional and industry decision-makers. Suggestions are that the City negotiate a system that allows Camrosians to retain their individual identities and lifestyles while they work together to build community, and that it create opportunities that build off the current transportation corridors within the region, including roads, rail and air. "It is nice to have the goals listed so that we can work towards them," said City of Camrose economic development officer Ray Telford. The plan emphasizes the need for the City to create an understanding with community and government that we make the most of the natural resources we have only if we can remain sustainable in our choices, protecting our environment for future generations to enjoy. The draft will be presented to City council for more discussion at a committee of the whole meeting in October.

Its accuracy and dependability have become the standard from which all other centerfire rifles are measured. Still the most accurate out-of-thebox rifle made, the Model 700™ brings its famous action and renowned consistency to three new additions to the prestigious family of guns.

Camel beige a warm neutral that's hot If you can only add one new item to your wardrobe this winter, make sure it’s a cameltoned piece. Hannah MacGibbon, former designer for Chloé, featured this warm, neutral palette last year, and we are now seeing it top this year’s trends. Camel tones are in all our favourite boutiques right now, so use this timeless and elegant colour as the basis for your wardrobe. It will set off a winter look to perfection. In the palette of neutrals, classic camel is situated right in the middle — on the paler end of the scale, you move into beige; darker, and it’s more likely to be called sand. The true camel tone suits all complexions, although it’s particularly flattering for blondes.

Whatever your colouring, take care to avoid combining camel with off-white, unless an oldfashioned look is what you’re after. The camel-coloured coat is the jewel of the season. An extremely practical colour, it can be combined with a scarf to create a very personalized look. Beautiful wrap-over coats are getting special notice this season, with huge cowl necklines that leave just enough room to knot a knitted scarf around the neck. They can also be worn open in warmer weather, as their folds have been designed to hang beautifully down to either side. Perfect for every occasion, the wrap-over camel coat can be worn to great effect over any of this season’s outfits.

If you’re fed up with the '80s-style retro fashions that have been on the street for a while now — especially those little Peter Pan ankle boots — you’ll be pleased to know that the softer '70s look has begun a return and is not likely to disappear any time soon. That’s right, straight from Woodstock, the '70s style is all the rage. Get ready to be groovy again! "Don't be afraid of colour and patterns," said Tish, from Tish's Fashions. The '70s style is an easy trend to follow. Just take your inspiration from the flower power folk singers of that era, with their high-waisted bell bottom pants and full colour spectrum. For a touch of hippy chic, emphasize the waist by combining pants with a tie-neck blouse, tucked into the pants and worn with an attractive leather belt and unique belt buckle. "Maxi dresses are also making a comeback this season," says Tish. "To complement a pretty floor-brushing dress, choose a pair of platform-soled shoes. Musts for the season are accessories such as wide-brimmed hats, in felt or wool, or floral headbands worn down around the forehead — a classic hippy look." If your inclination is to ignore the more flamboyant '70s-influenced trends, the classic look will do just fine this season. Both these styles were seen during a recent fashion show held by Annie 50, where Eastern European folklore influences brought a soft and homey look to the runway. But no matter which decade sways you, a style worn elegantly will always be in fashion!

The CAMROSE BOOSTER October 2, 2012

Canadian MPs vote for choice I have to admit that I was surprised when I heard that Rona Ambrose voted in favour of the private member's bill urging Parliament to re-examine when a fetus becomes a human being. The motion, seen by many as a way to re-open the debate on abortion in Canada, was defeated on September 26 in a free vote, with 203 MPs against and 91 conservative (including a handful of Liberal) MPs voting in favour of the motion. I was not surprised to see a member of Harper’s Conservative government voting in favour of the motion. Rona Ambrose, however, is not only a Conservative MP, but is also the Secretary of State for Status of Women Canada. The fact that the minister responsible for the status of women in Canada voted in favour of the bill was what was newsworthy. Ambrose’s vote led to many Canadians questioning whether or not she is the right woman for the job. After all, isn’t the MP responsible for the status of women supposed to be working towards women’s equality? Of course, advocating for women’s equality was removed from the mandate of Status of Women Canada several years ago by a

Second Thought

Shauna Wilton, Political Studies, Augustana Campus, University of Alberta

then-minority Harper government. While Ambrose may be correct in saying that her government has increased funding for Status of Women, they have done so at the expense of the authority and power of the agency to actually research and represent women in Canada. Abortion is generally viewed as central to women’s equality. The argument is that if a woman cannot control what happens to her own body, she cannot be fully autonomous. Thus, re-criminal-

izing abortion would represent a significant step backwards for Canadian women, putting women’s bodies and reproduction in the hands of others. Generally, politicians like to stay as far away as possible from controversial issues such as abortion (ironically, the last time a Conservative government tried to pass an abortion law, spearheaded by a doomed Kim Campbell, it was defeated is a rare act of defiance by the Canadian Senate). Stephen Harper, himself, has been working hard to corral his party and keep political issues far, far from Parliament. It is useful to look at how effective criminalization is in deterring certain acts. After all, the abortion debate boils down to an issue of choice – should women be able to choose to have an abortion or should women not have any choice. So, if we leave morality out of it (after all, individual women, as rational beings, can determine for themselves whether it is moral or not), what are we left with? Studies from the United Nations and the medical journal, the Lancet, demonstrate that abortion rates are highest in countries that criminalize

abortion. So, in Africa and Latin America approximately 3% of women aged 15-44 will have an abortion, compared with approximately 1.8% in North America. The highest abortion rate is in Eastern Europe at 4.3%. What this means is that where women have a lack of reproductive control, the abortion rates are the highest. More disturbing, however, is the fact that in countries that criminalize abortion, not only are abortion rates higher, most of the abortion are also illegal and, therefore, dangerous. Almost 50% of all abortions in the world are unsafe, compared with only 9% in North America. So, it seems that criminalizing abortion will not save the lives of unborn children. Instead, the issue is really about the level risk is involved for women seeking abortions. Ultimately, criminalizing abortion reduces women’s safety. If we really only want to reduce the number of abortions performed in Canada, as opposed to reducing the rights of women, we would be better off ensuring all women have access to free birth control and improving the position of women so that they are less likely to be victims of abuse and sexual violence both in the family and in society.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Small acts of caring count Canadians are the second happiest people in the world, second only to residents of Denmark That was the good news reported a week ago as the result of a Gallup world poll taken in February, 2012. The top five also included Norway, Switzerland and the Netherlands; the United States ranked 17th. These were the results of 150 countries polled. Noticeable was the fact that most of the top twenty happiest people lived in wealthy and developed countries – with the exception of Venezuela which ranked seventh, ahead of richer countries like United States and the United Kingdom. The Centre for the Study of Living Standards reported that the satisfaction rate among Canadians aged 12 and over was 92 per cent. The most satisfied were those aged 12 to 19; the least satisfied were those over age 65. The happiest people in Canada were residents of Quebec (which surprised me, given their repeated threats to separate and the recent election of the separatist Parti Quebecois). My satisfaction with the news that Canadians were among the happiest in the world was dampened when I learned that people living on aboriginal reserves, full-time members of the Canadian Forces, and those currently in institutions were excluded from the StatsCan data. Had these groups been included, the results may have been different. There is no question that Canadians do, indeed, have much for which to be satisfied: freedoms, peace, safety, justice, universal access to health care and education, as well as opportunity. Canada is a great country, nevertheless we must be aware that there are some persons among us who are not happy. If surveys are not all-inclusive, we won’t know who they are. If we don’t know who they are, we won’t be able to help. Hopefully, the next happiness survey will include all segments of our residents. While genuine happiness stems from within, it comes easier in an environment of equal opportunity, inclusiveness, mutual trust and respect, friendly neighbourhoods and strong, caring communities. Each of us can play an important role in making others happy by simply being friendly and helpful whenever possible. It is human to feel that unless we can do something really significant, it is too little to count. Mother Teresa, world-renowned and beloved nun for whom the whole world mourned when she died some fifteen years ago, had a different message. She said she had never done anything really great herself – and pointed out that “oceans are made one small drop at a time.”

Iconic Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia, with its world famous population of wild horses is in the process of becoming Canada's newest national park. Parks Canada has committed itself to their protection as wildlife, since "The horses have been living on the Island since the mid-1700s, and are therefore considered to be part of the ecosystem of the island." (Parks Canada's website) There are interesting similarities as well as differences between the Sable Island horses and Alberta's wild horses. Wild horses in the Rocky Mountains

and their vicinity were recorded by David Thompson for the early 19th century, and in the adjoining prairies by Anthony Hendry (or Henday) for 1754. First Nations in this region have owned horses at least since the 1730s. Thus there is no reason to believe that the presence of free-roaming horses in Alberta is of more recent origin than on Sable Island. Furthermore, in contrast to Sable Island, many scientists, adopting a paleoecological perspective, view the wild horse in western North America as returned wildlife rather than an introduced species. The outward appearance of the horses in the Rocky Mountain Foothills seems to confirm the historical evidence, as does preliminary DNA testing. These horses are not a hodgepodge of recent barnyard escapees. They appear to be of a specific type attesting to the presence of an original population descended from Spanish stock more than two centuries ago (frequent occurrence of the "dun factor", i.e. dorsal stripe as well as stripes on their withers and legs) and a later infusion of heavier horses in the early 20th

century. Different from the Sable Island horses, who have enjoyed protection and non-interference for the past half-century, Alberta's wild horses have not had the luxury of existing in splendid isolation, appreciated as a provincial and national icon. They have had to survive competing for their sustenance with commercial forestry, ranching, sport hunting and recreation. They have suffered the onslaught of those members of our civilized society who shoot horses just for kicks. They have endured in the face of a governmental attitude that seems to be vacillating between indifference and open aggression. They continue to live their lives in the presence of widespread public apathy and/or ignorance of even their existence. This may be their undoing unless we as Albertans do something about it. There must be no capture in 2012/13. The wild horse's long and illustrious cultural and natural history in this province should be recognized by its designation as a heritage animal.

Trojans football squad fights hard against Wetaskiwin By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans football team didn't spend a lot of time getting revved up to play the rival Wetaskiwin Sabres on Sept. 21. The excitement came naturally. The Trojans stepped up their game to battle the Sabres hard, but fell short in the 15-3 contest. "We had a better game. The defense was swarming to the ball and making big plays. Wetaskiwin scored one touchdown on offense and another on a kickoff return," said coach Adam Belanger. "We need to work on our consistency on offense and finish our drives. We fumbled on Wetaskiwin's two-yard line and dropped too many passes," said Adam. "Some of them would have been touchdowns, so we've been working on our passing game a lot this week." The Trojans football team was blanked 58-0 against a strong Hunting Hills Lightning team on Sept. 13. "The Trojans defence stepped it up in the second half and a few drives were put together on offence, but they stalled prior to putting points on the board," said coach Adam Belanger. The Trojans host the Ponoka Broncos on Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. CCHS finishes the regular season in Stettler with an Oct. 11 game against the Wildcats.

Keith Lawrence Olsen was born on July 4, 1950 in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, the middle son of Lawrence and Win Olsen of Ferintosh, Alberta. He attended school in Ferintosh, New Norway and Bashaw. He was very active in the Scouts program, achieving his Queen Scout Award. He was always very active in sports, especially hockey and baseball. He was so proud of being called up to play in the men’s league as a 14-year-old. In 1967, he married his high school sweetheart and they moved to Camrose. They were blessed with two wonderful daughters – Dawn in 1968 and Shannon in 1973. Several years later, two beautiful granddaughters arrived – Kaitlyn and Jenaya. Keith spent a short time with UFA Farm Supplies and Imperial Optical before he became an electronics technician (TV repairman). Keith and Doreen purchased the repair business (Electronic Services) from his teacher and mentor, Joe Feth, in 1985. They enjoyed and were very proud of their business and the friends they made over 21 years. However, economic times and our “throw-away” world forced him to give up his beloved independence and move on to the maintenance team at The Bethany Group. Keith loved his sports – he played hockey from approximately age six to 56! His greatest hockey love and memories were with the Goodtimers’ Hockey Club. He played baseball as a youngster and, as an adult, he enjoyed his time playing slowpitch with the Moose Selects. He became an avid and competitive golfer – after being taught by his motherin-law, no less! That is a whole other story! The golfing led us to our beloved campsite at Bashaw Golf and Country Club which we shared with brother Dennis and family as well as their mom and dad and many more family and friends. He always enjoyed camping (in the beginning, the “scout way”, but then we graduated to the “lazy ways”.) Camping has carried his family to many beautiful places across three provinces! Later, as he mellowed, he took up fishing, much to the delight of his sons-in-law! The fishing took us to many new campsites (they didn’t have to be near a golf course now); two of our favorite places became Peppers Lake (south of Rocky Mountain House) and Medicine Lake (south of Alder Flats). The newest “sport” he had embraced was geocaching which led us to many new places! Keith is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Doreen; two daughters Dawn (Sly) and Shannon (Ray) who were his pride and joy; and two granddaughters who were the light of his life. He is also survived by his mother Win; brothers Brian (Heather) and Dennis (Jackie); many nieces, nephews and extended family; as well as Doreen’s family and friends too numerous to mention. Keith was predeceased by his father Lawrence, and mother-in-law and father-in-law Leona and Carroll Smith. A funeral service was held on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. from Camrose Regional Exhibition with Mary Ann Pastuck officiating. Inurnment took place in the Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, the Cross Cancer Institute for Breast Cancer Research, or to S.T.A.R.S.

The economics definitely make sense in terms of reduced feed, labour and manure handling costs. And those economics start to look even better when you plan your electric fencing to maximize efficiency and pasture management.

Bedding. You want the cows to eat the swath,

But before you start to think about fencing, you have to lay the groundwork for success. Here are some considerations as you plan your winter grazing strategy.

Fencing. Left to their own devices, cows will

Site selection. If you’re swath grazing, you would have chosen your site in the spring when you planted the crop. Bale and stubble grazing is a bit more “portable”, so you can choose the site at any time. Regardless, a prime grazing field should have access to water, offer some protection from wind (either natural or use portable windbreaks), and be accessible should supplemental feed be required.

Animal condition. Cattle being turned out to

CITY COUNCILLOR Brandon Blatz Ph. (780)672-2962 or (780)678-1145

graze should be in good body condition to begin with – a score of 2.5 to 3 is ideal. Calves, thin cows and heifers with calves have higher energy requirements and may not be good candidates for swath or stubble grazing. Monitor animal condition regularly throughout the grazing period and bring them in if they’re losing condition.

Nutrition. It’s important to know the feed quality

of the swath and supplement when necessary. For the most part, cereal swaths provide adequate nutrition while stubble will likely not have enough feed value on its own and will need to be supplemented. Feed testing is recommended – take samples from multiple areas in the field a proper representative test. Always, minerals, salt and vitamins should be made available to grazing cattle.

Fencing in winter. The cold weather brings some specific issues when it comes to electric fencing – the ground is drier, the days are shorter and the cows’ coats are thicker, all of which need to be taken into consideration as you plan out your fencing needs.

not sleep or defecate on it, which is what they’ll do if you fail to provide bedding. Indeed, cattle can waste up to 25% of the swath by using it as bedding. As well, providing a proper bedding area reduces an animal’s energy requirements by 10% to 15%.

For example, grounding is much more difficult in dry winter soils, not to mention the insulating nature of snow in reducing the fence’s ability to deliver a jolt. Linking the grounding rods can help, but you will have to plan this out and get it done before freeze up.

wander the entire field grazing where they want, eat only the best bits (grain heads) and leave a lot of residue behind that you will have to clean up in the spring. The key to successful swath grazing is to ensure the cattle clean up as much of the straw as possible as they go, and this is where portable electric fencing plays a key role by allowing and restricting access to certain parts of the pasture. Here are some key tips:

Another consideration is that fewer hours of sunlight and snowfall can also interfere with solar panels’ ability to adequately power the batteries. Bringing batteries into the shop to charge them can help.

UFA has what you need

1. Placement. Position fencing at right angles to a swath to encourage grazing down the length of it rather than across a couple of swaths at once. This will prevent trampling and reduce waste. Assume a dry matter consumption rate of 2.5% to 3% of body weight per cow.

Depending on how you’re grazing cattle – swath, stubble or bale – your fencing design will change. Your local UFA store stocks Gallagher and Power Wizard fencing products, which both offer a complete line of components to fit your particular grazing plan.

2. Respect. Cows need to respect the fence if it’s going to effectively contain them. To that end, be sure you’re using the correct wire guage, have proper grounding and check that the energizer is delivering enough voltage (4,000 to 6,000 volts) to ensure the animals respect the boundary. You can switch from a heavier gauge wire to easier-to-handle poly twine once they’ve learned that respect, but you have to get them there first.

Proper electric fencing will ensure even and controlled grazing so that you can manage nutrition, waste and prevent overgrazing – all of which lead to healthy cattle as well as healthy fields. Come and speak to one of our experts and design a fencing solution that’s right for your farm and your budget.

Visit your local UFA Farm and Ranch Supply store today, or see UFA.com for more information.

3. Power source. If you’re using batteries, monitor them regularly to ensure the power charge to the energizer is sufficient. Always keep spare, fully charged batteries on hand.

The money was raised in a Drive One 4 UR School event last June, in which Ford Canada donated $20 to the playground for every vehicle that was taken for a test drive. A total of 232 test drives raised $4,600, which Lamb Ford Sales in Camrose topped up to $6,000. The Drive One 4 UR School event was combined with a Family Fun Day that included a concession, children's activities and face painting.

City competitive with other communities on industrial lot prices By Dan Jensen Camrose City council was given assurances last week that the prices being proposed for the lots in the Mohler III industrial subdivision are in line with other communities throughout Alberta. "We would be very competitive with lot prices in the area," said City of Camrose economic development officer Ray Telford. "If you look at the prices in the Nisku and Edmonton areas our prices would be low." City administration presented council with a pair of Mohler III development options Sept. 10, one with an average lot price of $250,000 per acre and one with an average lot price of $197,000 per

acre. The average price per acre for City and privately owned industrial land in Edmonton is $750,000 and $575,000 per acre respectively, while the price per acre in Nisku is $325,000 per acre. The price per acre in Lloydminster ranges from $200,000 to $300,000, while the price in Spruce Grove ranges from, $355,000 to $399,000. The price per acre in Edson, which is two hours west of Edmonton, is $184,000 per acre.

Buffaloes play hard on own turf in football showdown By Murray Green

The Camrose Buffaloes atom football squad was hit hard by the first place Stony Plain Bombers on Sept. 23. The Bombers have scored 40 or more points in all of its games this season. The game started with a kick-off touchdown by the Bombers and they scored on their next few possessions. Camrose tightened the defence, but the game ended 34-0. The Bombers scored all their points in the first half. "It was a bit of a victory as we held them under 40 points and did not allow them to score in the second half," said coach Fitz Sherman. "In the first half we did not get the ball past midfield, but we started to move the ball in the second half. If it was not for a missed blocking assignment, we would have scored one touchdown." One bright spot was that the players did not give up and played hard until the end. "This is a character building game for the players and we will see how they rebound from this game. Some stand out players were Joshua Moores, who was a force on the lines after a twogame absence, and newcomer Justin Smith who played well on defence. Peewee

The peewee version of the Buffaloes came out thundering down the field and when the dust settled, Camrose won a close 24-19 contest. After struggling most of last season, this year's version of the peewee Buffaloes is starting to come together. "With a very difficult week one loss against rival Wetaskiwin and a week two win over Fort Saskatchewan, we faced a very tough Spruce Grove team that sported a roster of over 40 players," said coach James Kozak. "Because of an injury to halfback Quin Twomey, one of our big run stoppers, we were down to 19 players for the day." The game started with a brilliant kickoff return for a touchdown by Dorien Sikstrom. "We then set the tone on defence by stuffing their first plays and getting the ball back. In the first half, we moved the ball very effectively with a long touchdown run by Nick Ionidis, two touchdown passes to Teryll Sherman and Drew Loosemore from Dorien," added James. "Our defence played very strong as well with the emergence of tackle Carl Kittler, who is becoming a force on the defensive line. The defence did a great job of containing the Predator's very strong running back, who is a threat to score every time he touches the ball." The play of the game came when safety Daulton Chartrand made a huge pick off in the red zone. "I look for four keys to victory: that we play with Heart, that we put forth our maximum Effort, that we come to the field with an outstanding Attitude and that we work together, Teamwork. If we bring these four elements or HEAT, we are very hard to beat."

Below: Atom Buffaloes defender Ben Jennings tracks down the Bombers running back. Camrose held the Bombers to naught points in the second half.

Bantam

The bantam version of the Buffaloes outplayed the Mustangs, but the game was hard fought right to the end. Camrose salvaged a point in the 7-7 gridlock. "Except for the first drive, our defense played extremely well, often holding the Mustangs to a two and out," said coach Carl Davidse. "Our special teams were outstanding. We had great coverage on kickoff’s and punts." The bantams had some good returns on kickoffs on offence. "We had a few dropped passes and some untimely penalties, which prevented us from getting the win," said Carl. "However, we played well and dominated the time of possession on offense." All three Buffaloes teams play home games on Oct. 6 and Oct. 14 at Kin Park.

Kodiaks' Gadoury ranked by NHL scouts By Murray Green Three straight losses have erased the memory of the Camrose Kodiaks' good start to the Alberta Junior Hockey League season. Camrose boasted a good power play during its five-game winning streak, but the offence dried up by going zero for 10 with the man advantage against the Olds Grizzlys in a 3-1 loss to the fellow bears, Sept. 24. "We have to trust in the coaches' systems. They worked before and we have to stick with it," said second year Kodiak forward Nelson Gadoury. Olds scored in each period and out-shot Camrose 43-39. Ty Clay was the only Camrose player to garner a point on the evening. Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 40 of 42 shots in the contest.

"Our two goalies have played great for us and we have to score some more goals for them," said Nelson. "We are always just a goal away because our goalies keep us in the games." Camrose was outscored by only four goals in those three losses, so no one on the Kodiaks is pushing the panic button. The Brooks Bandits scored just 26 seconds into overtimes to steal a 2-1 victory over the Kodiaks on Sept. 21. Luc Vandale notched a shorthanded marker late in the third frame to force the extra period. Brooks out-shot the Kodiaks 32-17 and it was the stellar goaltending of Devin McDonald that kept Camrose in the game and in the hunt for at least one point. "We are a lot faster and younger than last year's team, so

we are going to improve and be good," added Nelson. "Our attention to detail is good and everyone is listening to the coaches. We are focused more on details than last year and that should be helpful." Camrose suffered a similar fate against the Okotoks Oilers on Sept. 20. It was Nelson Gadoury who collected a tally late in the third period to force overtime. After overtime failed to solve the deadlock, Okotoks scored on all of its shootout chances to take the extra point. Scoring was bittersweet for Nelson as he scored, but his team still lost a close game. Nelson made the NHL Central Scouting draft prospect list. He is one of two AJHL players to be added to the first list of the season unveiled by the scouting office. He is projected to be drafted

between the fourth to sixth round in the NHL draft next June. "It felt really good to be put on that list, but I wouldn't have success without my teammates," said Nelson. "The coaches and the guys in the dressing room help me a lot. I owe everyone for that recognition and for helping me reach the level where I've received notice. It has always been a childhood dream to make the NHL and with this list it means it could be one step closer. It (the draft) is at the end of the season, so I have a lot of work to do first." Nelson's plan is to return to the Kodiaks for another season next year. "I have to work on moving my feet more and skate the whole time on the ice," he said. "I want to score more to help the rest of the fellows more." Nelson is related to Craig

Berube, who played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, Washington Capitals and the New York Islanders of the NHL. Drive Away Hunger The Kodiaks host the Brooks Bandits on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena. This game features the Farm Credit Canada's Drive Away Hunger campaign.

Dodge Journey Making a good thing even better By Dan Jensen

The 2012 Dodge Journey at Camrose Chrysler is an example of how something good can be made even better. "When it comes to affordability, power, fuel efficiency and versatility, this is one fleet vehicle that truly delivers it all," said Camrose Chrysler sales manager Denis Mercier. Journey's Canadian Value Package and SE models are powered by a 2.4 litre 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine that produces 173 horsepower and 166 lb.-ft. of torque, linked to a four-speed automatic transmission. This four-cylinder engine uses just 10.8 litres per 100 km travelled in the city and 7.5 litres per 100 km travelled on the highway. The award-winning 3.6 litre Pentastar V-6 engine, standard on SXT, Crew and R/T models produces 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. This Pentastar V-6 engine was recognized as Ward's 10 "Ten Best Engines for 2011." In addition to excellent power it uses just 12.6 litres per 100 km in the city and just 8.4 litres per 100 km on the highway. With a five-year/100,000 kilometre limited powertrain warranty, owners can rest assured knowing their powerful and efficient Journey is well covered.

er-side knee blocker air bag, side-curtain air bags covering all three rows, front seatmounted air bags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LATCH child seat anchor system and Trailer-sway Control. Confidence

Attention to detail

Dodge Journey offers levels of refinement not typically found in the crossover market. A beautifully crafted premium, soft-touch one-piece instrument panel sets the tone. A standard Electronic Vehicle Information Centre is positioned in the centre of the gauge cluster, which has a full-colour display backlit in Dodge red lights, giving it a soft glow unlike any in the segment. The flexible centre console features premium cushioning on the tilt-and-slide armrest. Lift the lid and there's a larger centre storage bin with a 12-volt outlet and USB port where owners can hook up their MP3/iPod charging connections and hide them away. Rear seat passengers can now enjoy a Rear Seat Video system (available for Journey Crew and R/T AWD models). The design team also worked to make the Journey's interior very comfortable and extremely flexible. There's a large front storage bin with side nets, a multi-functioning, three-spoke steering wheel with integrated controls, and a wide, long, soft-touch armrest that transforms the driver's seat into a cockpit-like experience. Comfortable seats might just make drivers want to take the long way home to get a little extra seat time. Engineers also developed many treatments to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. One example is the Journey's dual dash silencer, which isolates the cabin, making for a nice, quiet ride. The interior isn't just a nice place to be, it also offers best-in-class utility. Second and optional third-row seats fold flat for additional storage. There are also innovative storage bins in the floor ahead of the second-row seats

that can hold everything from muddy clothes to soda cans, to concealing valuables like a camera, laptop or purse. With fold-flat front storage and front passenger in-seat storage, Dodge Journey has best-in-class storage. Journey also offers some standard features not commonly found in the segment, such as power heated and fold-away mirrors, dual-zone climate control, illuminated cup holders, Keyless Enter-N-Go with push button start, and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. Owners will feel like they have the world at their fingertips with the Journey's available touchscreen command centre, Uconnect Touch. From navigation to voice-command music selections to the ability to check fuel prices, the Uconnect Touch media centre makes life in the Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Uconnect Touch models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology. With its touchscreen display and user-friendly, touch-screen categories, connecting and controlling personal devices is simple, intuitive and customizable. Safety is paramount

Journey has been an international top safety pick for three consecutive years and is loaded with an abundance of over 40 safety and security features, including standard advanced multi-stage front passenger air bags, active head restrains, ESC with all-speed traction control, electronic roll mitigation and Brake Assist, driv-

Dodge Journey also offers all-wheel-drive capability, perfect for drivers who want some extra grip for a more performance feel, or who appreciate the extra traction Journey's all-wheel-drive system provides. Dodge Journey features standard ESC and all-speed traction control, which help keep the crossover on path in a variety of road surface and weather conditions. Journey's available all-wheel-drive electronic control module works with the ESC and traction control systems, allowing the ESC to use the ECC to help gain control of the vehicle, reducing the amount of torque that the ECC transmits to the rear wheels. Family mover with style

On the outside, Journey maintains its sculpted, clean, aggressive lines and front fascia that sports the signature Dodge brand "split crosshair" grille. Journeys with the Pentastar 3.6 litre V-6 get a more aggressive lower front fascia and a rear fascia with integrated, duel bright exhaust tips. Available bold "ring of fire" LED taillamps have a distinctive style out back, while available 19-inch aluminum wheels provide a dramatic styling statement.

Maintain your vehicle

Many motorists bemoan the myriad costs associated with owning a vehicle. The average price for a new car is slightly more than $28,000. But as any vehicle owner knows, that sticker price is only the beginning. The cost of maintaining a vehicle and keeping it on the road is not exactly small potatoes. As the economy begins to rebound, a significant percentage of motorists have resolved to keep their vehicles on the road longer in an effort to stretch their automobile dollars. That's a sound resolution, and one that is not necessarily difficult to accomplish. Contrary to popular belief, cars are built to last, and it's often a vehicle owner's poor habits that reduce a car's life expectancy as opposed to the vehicle manufacturer's shoddy product. Drivers looking to lengthen their vehicle's lifespan can employ preventive maintenance that should keep a car running strong for years to come.

Add years to your vehicle's life Getting more for your money is a popular trend among consumers. As economic uncertainty reigns, smart consumers are looking for the best values in an effort to get the most out of each and every dollar they spend. One of the best ways to stretch a dollar is to take better care of your vehicle. Buying a home and financing a college education are perhaps the only times many consumers will spend more money than they do when purchasing a vehicle. But unlike a home or an education, few people take their vehicles seriously, all too often avoiding vehicle maintenance that can greatly increase a car or truck's life expectancy. Drivers who want to keep their cars going strong for years to come can do so in a handful of ways. * Prevent, prevent, prevent. Preventive maintenance might seem like a boring way to spend a weekend morning or afternoon, but the efforts will be well worth it. Oil changes and filter replace-

ments are quick and easy jobs but pay major dividends over the long haul. Drivers who aren't comfortable performing these tasks themselves need not worry about costly trips to the mechanic. Routine jobs like an oil change or air filter replacement are relatively inexpensive, and today's vehicles can go much longer between oil changes and filter replacements. Each vehicle manufacturer is different, so drivers should consult their owner's manual and adhere to the recommended maintenance schedule. * Stay balanced. Balanced tires are tires that will last longer. But an out of balance tire will not only shorten the life of tires, it can also do damage to the rest of the vehicle while simultaneously making riding in the car much less comfortable. When a tire is properly balanced, its mass is uniformly distributed around the axle, making for a smooth, vibration-free ride. However, an out of balance tire shortens the life expectancy of suspension com-

ponents, including bearings and shocks. Repairs that result from an unbalanced tire can prove costly. Should a vibration occur as the vehicle accelerates (typically, this vibration will be noticeable when the car reaches speeds of 40-45 mph), chances are the tires are not properly balanced. * Look good, feel good. The credo of "look good, feel good" isn't only applicable to humans. In fact, a car that looks good likely feels good as well.Washing and waxing a car regularly helps avoid rust under the carriage and in the wheel wells. The longer a car goes between washes, the more likely it is to rust, and the paint is likely to corrode as well. There is no quick fix to either of these problems, but preventive maintenance, like routinely washing and waxing the vehicle, can keep these potentially menacing issues from ever rearing their rusty heads. Preventing rust and corrosion is also a good way to ensure a car's resale value does not diminish over time.

* Get out and drive. Cars that spend most of their life in stop-and-go traffic likely won't last as long as those that routinely get out and go. That's because city driving with lots of stopping and going is very taxing on an engine. On a highway, air flow to the radiator, oil flow to the engine and everything that makes a car run is much more consistent, reducing the stress on the engine as a result. Constantly accelerating and decelerating is hard on an engine, while the consistent speeds of highway driving offer a welcome respite to the engine. City dwellers should get out and drive their car on a highway at least once a month for no less than 30 minutes. This is also a good way to get rid of potentially harmful condensation that can negatively impact engine performance. When looking to get more for your money, one of the best ways to do so is to take better care of the car sitting in your driveway.

Properly adjusted mirrors help to improve safety Millions of motor vehicle accidents occur each year. While the motor vehicle industry places a great emphasis on safety, it's ultimately up to motorists to ensure their vehicle is as safe as possible. Mirrors are an often overlooked aspect of safe driving. Properly adjusted rearview and side view mirrors improve visibility by reducing blind spots, which in turn reduces a driver's risk of being in an accident, especially on multi-lane highways where drivers may be forced to keep tabs on fellow motorists on both sides of their vehicles. When adjusting mirrors, consider the following tips to ensure your vehicle is as safe as possible. * Ensure optimal visibility from the interior rearview mirror. A properly adjusted rearview mirror allows drivers to see what's alongside and behind them, improving road awareness while reducing the risk of an accident. Most drivers know the rearview mirror should allow them to see out of the rear window from the driver's seat. But it's also important to utilize the day/night switch found on most rearview mirrors. Such a switch isn't an unnecessary accessory, but one that can reduce glare from cars behind you at night. Just be sure to flip the switch back to the daytime setting in the morning to ensure maximum visibility. * Firmly secure the rearview mirror. Unfortunately, rearview mirrors are not always sturdy, as many vehicle manufacturers attach the rearview mirror to the windshield with a special button that is glued to the glass at the factory. This glue can come undone when drivers hit a pothole or just gradually weaken thanks to the ravages of heat, humidity or cold weather. * Don't overlook side view mirrors. A 1995 study noted that, when positioned correctly, side view mirrors can help drivers see vehicles in their blind spots, eliminating a driver's need to glance over his or her shoulder when changing lanes. When adjusting the driver's side mirror, place the side of your head against the window, then adjust the mirror until the side of your vehicle comes into view. To adjust the passenger's side mirror, sit in the driver's seat, and then lean to the right so that your head is in the car's centerline. Adjust the mirror until the side of your vehicle comes into view. Once your mirrors have been adjusted and the rearview mirror is firmly secure, don't forget to use each of these mirrors when driving. Many drivers rely solely on their rearview mirrors to back up and change lanes on the highway. However, if all of your mirrors are aligned correctly, you should be able to see a vehicle leave the rearview mirror and move to one of the side view mirrors immediately. Diligent use of each mirror can help prevent accidents that occur when drivers change lanes.

How to avoid becoming a vehicle theft statistic Automobile theft is no laughing matter. It leaves people without a means of transportation, costs the public more money in insurance payments and taxes and can give anyone the feeling of being personally violated. The FBI estimates that around one million motor vehicles are stolen in the United States each year. The Insurance Bureau of Canada says that a car is stolen every three and a half minutes in Canada, an estimate that translates to approximately 420 cars per day. Auto theft costs everyone millions of dollars -- and can even cost some their lives. The chances of a car being stolen are now significantly less than they were in 1989. That could be due to vehicle theft prevention systems that now come standard on many new cars. While not all vehicle thefts and break-ins can be prevented, there are many devices individuals can employ to help reduce the risk of vehicle theft. * Immobilizing devices: There are several types of immobilizing devices available to protect a car from theft. An immobilizing system works by preventing thieves from bypassing your ignition switch and hotwiring your car. An immobilization device can involve a kill switch that needs to be turned on before the car will start and can be cleverly hidden. Most cars also come with specially encoded smart keys that are required to start the car. The key is unique to the make, model and VIN number of the car. * Car alarms: Car alarms work as a deterrent to theft, but they do not always prevent theft. The alarm sounds when the vehicle is tampered with or the door is opened, but many people have become desensitized to car alarms because of the frequency of "false alarms" from car owners setting the alarms off them-

selves. Therefore, they may no longer be as effective as they once were. In addition, many thieves can disarm an alarm in a matter of seconds. * Hood and tire locks: Locks that are installed on different parts of the car or truck can also deter thieves. A hood lock stops a potential thief from getting under the hood and gaining access to the engine and wiring. Tire locks are special devices that require a unique tool to remove the tire. This can help prevent tire theft and may give thieves pause as to what other anti-theft devices are on the car. * Tracking devices: There are devices, like Lojack, that are designed to pinpoint the position of a car. It uses FM radio frequencies to help police recover the car. Some people also purchase aftermarket GPS devices that will show their vehicle's location on a computer or smartphone. * OnStar: This system was originally designed to be a crashnotification system, but it now offers other helpful services. Individuals can use OnStar for directions, to unlock their vehicles and now to slow down their cars and trucks if they have been stolen. OnStar comes pre-installed on many General Motors cars. There are other steps to take to prevent vehicle thefts and break-ins. * Whenever possible, park in well-illuminated areas. * Never leave your car unlocked. * Keep valuables, including money, out of site in your car. * Be mindful of where you keep your car keys. * When parking in unfamiliar neighborhoods, park in public paylots that have security present. * Give valet parkers your valet key, so they won't have access to a trunk or glove compartment. * Know your car alarm sound and be aware of it.

Treat headllamp cloudiness Headlights serve to improve visibility during nighttime driving conditions and inclement weather. They help drivers see and be seen by other motorists. When headlights are dull and cloudy, they can prove to be a safety hazard on the road. Fortunately, there are ways to restore headlights to their full effectiveness. Driving during the day is easier than driving at night, when vision is easily compromised. A human's visual field is much smaller in the dark, and it can be harder to spot road hazards, animals or people when driving at night. An improperly lit driving area can make it much more difficult to see. It also impairs others' ability to see your vehicle coming and going. The number reason for severe nighttime accidents and reduced driving safety is dim or cloudy and improperly lit headlights. Nearly four out of five drivers drive with improperly lit headlights. There are a few different reasons for poor headlight illumination. In many instances, the headlight lamp has burned out and the light is no longer work-

ing. Old bulbs may dim and fail to provide the same level of illumination as they once did. Oxidized and cloudy headlight coverings are also a known contributor to diminished headlight function. Today's headlight lenses are made from plastic. While it may not be visible immediately, road debris and weather conditions can put small dings and scratches into the lenses over time. These small damages can add up to covers that look dingy and dull. Cloudiness also occurs as the result of exposure to ultraviolet light. Although newer cars have lenses that are supposed to resist scratching and damage, some dulling may occur. There are many headlight cleaning kits on the market that are quite effective at restoring the lenses to their original glory. Most of these kits use a series of buffers and polishers to gently buff out scratches and rid the headlights of oxidation. Because headlight lens replacement may cost upwards of $200 per lens, the kits are much more cost effective. Continued on page 34

Five steps to prevent engine overheating It is a common sight many an automobile owner is all to familiar with: A car is stranded on the side of the road with the hood open and smoke billowing out as an exasperated driver looks on shaking his or her head. An overheated engine can render a car useless in a matter of minutes. A vehicle is propelled by an engine that ignites gasoline and causes controlled explosions within. An engine can produce quite a lot of heat. Compound this with external temperatures and an overheated engine may occur. Other mechanical factors can also cause an engine to overheat. These include a faulty thermostat to regulate coolant supply to the engine and even an inoperable radiator fan.

Experts say an average car engine is designed to operate within 195 to 220 F. Anything above that could cause engine failure. Overheating can cause a lot of damage to a car. It may damage and burn holes in the parts. Rings, pistons or rod bearings may become impaired, or one can blow a head gasket. Coolant is designed to protect an engine to a point, but it can also become compromised under high heat. Boiling coolant may cause the radiator and hoses to burst. The best way to avoid engine and vehicle trouble due to overheating is to prevent an engine from becoming overheated in the first place. Here are strategies to employ. 1. Ensure that coolant levels

are maintained and there are no leaks that would cause coolant to drip out. Be sure the right coolant is being used for the particular vehicle. 2. Dirty, inadequate motor oil cannot dissipate heat as well as clean oil. Check the oil level and viscosity. Change the oil before a long trip or if it looks past its prime. 3. Confirm radiator hoses are in good working order and do not look worn out. 4. Have a mechanic check that a radiator fan is working and that there is adequate air flow through the radiator. 5. Be aware of engine temperature by watching the gauge lunder the hood.

Bad driving habits can cost you money Everyone has their bad habits. Whether it's relatively harmless habits like biting your fingernails or potentially deadly ones like smoking cigarettes, some habits come in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to cars, drivers' bad habits abound. Many drivers might have a host of bad habits but not even know it. Unfortunately, bad driving habits are not only detrimental to a vehicle, but they could be costing drivers money as well. The following are some of the more common poor habits that, if corrected, can add years to a vehicle's life and dollars to a driver's bank account. Running on Empty

Fuel costs are still consider-

able, and many drivers try to squeeze every last drop out of their tanks before returning to the filling station. Unfortunately, this is somewhat of a Pyrrhic victory. While it might feel good to get an extra day's worth of driving out of a tank of gas, the toll that running on empty takes on the rest of the vehicle is a hefty one indeed. The sediment from gasoline settles at the bottom of the gas tank, and when gas levels run low, the car must use the dirtiest gas it has as fuel. As that happens, the sediment that would otherwise remain at the bottom of the tank instead gets into the car's fuel line and even its engine. The fuel filter

likely won't catch all of this dirt, and the engine will therefore be taxed unnecessarily just so drivers can go an extra day before filling up. Stopping and Starting

For some drivers, such as those who live in cities, constant stopping and starting is unavoidable. For others, however, this stopping and starting needs to be avoided at all costs. Drivers who enjoy accelerating and then quickly stopping between stoplights might like the adrenaline rush such driving provides, but their engines certainly don't appreciate it. Nor do their wallets. Frequently flooring the gas pedal is wasting expensive gas

and putting a heavy strain on the engine. And all those quick stops is taxing the car's brakes, greatly reducing their life expectancy. Revving the Engine

Fans of the film franchise "Fast and the Furious" might love to rev their engines just like their favorite movie stars. But in real life, such a habit is pointless and potentially very harmful to a vehicle. This is especially true when a vehicle has just been started and the engine hasn't had the chance to warm up. Revving the engine while it's still cold means the vehicle's oil is still down in the oil pan and none of the engine's parts have yet been lubricated.

A car owner can also perform similar maintenance with just a few items from the hardware store and automotive shop. Employ incremental grits of sandpaper to clean the headlights without causing further damage. In addition, cutting compounds and surface cleaners can be applied with electric buffers to clean the sandpaper grit and any other debris caught in the headlights. Plastic polishers can further increase the shine of the headlights and make them look new. The key to keeping headlights looking their best is to be on top of any damage taking place. Handling minor cloudiness is much easier than a complete headlight overhaul. Routinely inspect the headlights and check for damage.

Staying abreast of vehicle recall information Driving a new vehicle off of the sales lot can be exciting. Brand-new vehicles are supposed to be reliable and free from maintenance concerns. However, sometimes manufacturers recall a vehicle, forcing drivers to visit the auto body shop sooner than they had hoped. Vehicles are recalled for a variety of reasons, including poorly performing tires, faulty pieces of motor vehicle equipment and unsafe child safety seats. It can be disconcerting to learn that your vehicle is being recalled. The uneasiness of driving a potentially dangerous vehicle coupled with the prospect of being without a car can be daunting. Vehicle manufacturers must notify consumers that a recall is in place. But sometimes a vehicle owner may not be aware that there is a recall. In the event of large recalls, the story makes the national news. But there are other ways drivers can stay current on recall information to ensure their personal safety. Individuals can visit www. Recalls.gov and select the categories they want to check. To check recalls on a particular motor vehicle, select that category, enter the make and model as well as the year, and the information about any recalls will appear. Recall information can help save lives and prevent injuries. It is important to be aware of recalls to ensure the vehicle you're driving is as safe as possible.


Fall Car Care Guide… What to do with a cracked windshield

The scenario is all too common. Drivers are traveling down the road, and a pebble gets kicked up and hits into their windshield, causing a small chip to appear. Slowly but surely that chip turns into a spreading, snaking crack that only gets worse with each bump and pothole. Having a broken windshield is not only unsightly and a big inconvenience, it can also be illegal. That's because the crack reduces the efficacy of the window safety composition, meaning it may shatter in the event of an impact accident and cause extensive injuries. The crack also may impede a driver's ability to see the road clearly. It's important to note that liability car insurance typically doesn't cover a cracked windshield that occurs in a collision. Instead, drivers hoping to be covered need to have collision insurance on their vehicle. However, not all windshields crack in a car accident. Many are damaged in nonaccident related circumstances, whether this be a tree branch that falls on the car or a rock kicked up from the roadway. It's important to read an insurance policy thoroughly to be sure that nonaccident related cracks to the windshield will be covered. Even if the damage is covered, it may not be worth the expense of paying the insurance deductible and filing a claim, which may end up raising your rate in the long run. Many small nicks can be repaired easily with a kit purchased from an automotive supply store. Inexpensive and user-friendly, the instructions guide users through the process of sealing the crack and preventing it from spreading. If the crack is beyond the scope of a do-it-yourself fix, a windshield repair service that specializes in this type of work might be necessary. These companies use products that harden quickly and reglaze the windshield so that the crack may not even be noticeable afterward. Upon inspection, a mechanic or a windshield replacement company may determine that the crack is not something that can be mended. The entire windshield will have to be replaced at this point. In some cases the windshield can be removed and replaced in the same day. While there is no way to prevent a cracked windshield entirely, there are certain ways to reduce the risk. This includes avoiding running over any debris on the road that can be kicked back at the windshield.

Share the road safely with those around you Streets provide means of transportation for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. When so many different people come together on the roadways, particularly of varied shapes and sizes, there's the potential for safety problems if everyone isn't working together. Although most drivers must pass a test and driver education classes, including practice on roadways, the same testing measures are not in place for cyclists. Even though bicycles are not powered vehicles, they are governed by the same rules of the road as trucks, cars and motorcycles. While there may be the potential for injury, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that it is relatively low when safety procedures are met. At the forefront of bicycle safety is wearing a helmet. Males of the age 9 to 15 cycling in the

summer without a helmet make up the highest number of bicycle incidents. Even with low incidences of bicycle-related injuries, it may still be prudent for avid cyclists to take a class or refresh their knowledge of bicycle rules of the road. In most areas of North America, bicycles and tricycles can be operated on all roads unless otherwise prohibited. Areas where bicycles are often prohibited include bridges and tunnels. A drivers' license is not needed to operate a bicycle, but rules may vary if the bicycle is powered or has been modified with a small engine. It is best to check to determine the rules where you live. Cyclists must ride on the same side of the road as vehicular traffic and in the same direction. Just like motorists, cyclists must obey all traffic control signs and signals. Both cyclists and motor-

ists should yield the right-of-way to each other -- one does not have preference in right of way. Many cyclists fail to signal their turns and ride in a predictable manner. This can be dangerous and lead to accidents. Hand signals can be used to indicate turning intentions if electronic signals are not installed. If riding at night or during dusk, a headlight and reflectors can help promote visibility, as can a rear, red flashing light. Riding on roads is not as safe as riding on sidewalks, but most cities and towns prohibit the riding of bicycles on sidewalks, particularly in urban centers. When any riding is done, a helmet should be worn for personal safety -- it also may be the law. Because bicycles may be harder to see and hear than cars and motorcycles, there are some

other safety precautions cyclists can take to avoid accidents. * Do not ride in the blind spots of other vehicles. * Do not assume you can overtake or pass a vehicle that has the power to go much more quickly than you. * Do not follow cars too closely to allow for adequate reaction time. * Wear light colored or reflective clothing so that motorists can see you on the road. * Use a bell or horn for further indication that you are in the area. * Do not assume that because you are on a bicycle you can dart in and out of traffic. * Be aware of parked cars on the side of the road. SmartMotorist.com says that approximately 5 percent of bicycle accidents occur when someone opens a parked car door in front of an oncoming bike.

Production Contact Numbers: Camrose Police Service be conducting additional check403 261 7161 403will 261 7152 stops this Thanksgiving long weekend as part of Operation Impact. "We will be targeting impaired drivers, distracted drivers, seatbelt violators and other offenders," said Camrose Police Service inspector Lee Foreman." The service will also focus on violators throughout regular patrols and enforce various traffic related offences. Operation Impact (Oct. 5-8) is a national campaign to make Canada's roads the safest in the world and remind people that an essential part of the enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. The focus is on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: impaired driving, seat belt use, and all aspects related to aggressive and distracted driving. All enforcement agencies across the country have been invited to participate in Operation Impact. "The deaths, pain and broken hearts that result from carelessness behind the wheel can be prevented," said Inspector Foreman. "Police agencies across the country are collaborating on this project because they have seen more than enough of that, and because they know that the involvement of the driving public is essential to achieve safer streets and highways." The initiative has been strategically chosen, as it is a significant long weekend. More people are travelling and traffic crashes are more frequent. Camrose has seen one death and 75 injuries as a result of traffic collisions over the past three years "These are just numbers but they represent moms, dads, sisters, brothers, loved ones, co-workers and neighbours," said Inspector Foreman. "It is unacceptable to Camrose Police Service." Operation Impact is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and member agencies of the CACP Traffic Committee from across Canada in support of Canada's Road Safety Strategy 2015, which has the goal of making Canada's roads the safest in the world by 2015.

Language and thinking skills test a child's readiness Submitted

The provincial Early Childhood Development (ECD) Mapping Initiative included assessments of the readiness of young children currently entering kindergarten in five categories including language and thinking skills. According to the results, 14.37 per cent of Camrose and Area kindergarten children are experiencing difficulty or great difficulty in the Language and Thinking Skills category. Language and Thinking skills

includes reading awareness, age-appropriate reading and writing skills, age-appropriate numeracy skills, ability to understand similarities and differences, and ability to recite back specific pieces of information from memory. Language and thinking skills are a cornerstone of child development. As a child enters kindergarten he or she will be expected to do things such as: print his/her first and last names, draw a picture that

tells a story, begin writing upper and lower case letters, understand how a book works (read from left to right and top to bottom), and compare and match words based on their sounds. Practicing these skills at home will ensure the highest rate of success amongst kindergarten children. “A parent’s best tool is his or her own communication and language skills. Parents who talk with their children frequently, read and sing often

(increasing the number of words to which children are exposed), and generally encourage children to write, will find a child’s language skills will grow rapidly,” explains Kari Cameron, the Camrose and Area ECD Program Coordinator. Cameron also explains that “thinking skills increase when children immerse themselves in books and make connections to the text. Asking a child what the story made him/ her think of, or if it reminds

him/her of something that has happened to him/her, is a great way to promote thinking skills and self-awareness.” The Camrose Family Resource Centre also offers a variety of programs that may be of assistance to parents with concerns regarding the language and thinking skills of a child.

Centra Cam experiences another busy year You would think with its building project out of the way Centra Cam Vocational Training Association would be able to take a breather before jumping into something else. Not so. "Our business departments – Centra Cam Custom Projects and Recycle with Centra Cam – have seen a steady increase in business," said Centra Cam executive director Roxanna Skjonsberg at the association's annual general meeting Sept. 19. Projects continue to supply bunks, wedges and survey stakes to a growing customer base. According to the audited financial report, Projects took in $839,000 in revenue, compared to $673,000 the year before. Recycle with Centra Cam took in revenue of $504,000, compared to $465,000 the year before.

"We have seen increased tonnage of product coming in," said Skjonsberg. "The increase started when the City instituted a bag limit on garbage. It shows that people are doing more recycling, which is a good thing for both us and our environment. Centra Cam is currently looking into what it needs to do to have its own products shipped out of Canada. "We have requests for quotes on products that would be used to ship customer goods overseas," said Skjonsberg. Centra Cam Vocational Training Association's Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot received around 200 referrals per month from 60 referring agencies. Over the last 11 years, the ECFD has successfully supported over 23,877 individuals who were faced with emergency situations. Coats for Camrose handed out more than 1,200

Volunteer of the Year

Centra Cam executive director Roxanna Skjonsberg presents the Volunteer of the Year award to Jackie McClelland. By Dan Jensen

Jackie McClelland has been named Centra Cam Vocational Training Association 2012 Volunteer of the Year. McClelland has been a regular volunteer at Centra Cam's Outlet Store on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, helping with whatever needs to be done. She has also assisted with Coats for Camrose and the food booths at Jaywalkers' Jamboree and the Camrose Cruise. "She has been known to come in extra days and work longer hours if she can see we need her," said Centra Cam executive director Roxanna Skjonsberg at the Association's annual general meeting Sept. 19. McClelland has been a supporter of Centra Cam and the work it does for many years. "When she was involved with McDonald's she helped support a number of clients with their employment there and supported a lot of our fund-raisers with items for prizes, and we knew we could count on them for juice," said Skjonsberg. McClelland is one of six volunteers at Centra Cam. "We have two individuals who help at the Recycling Depot and four who help us at the Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot and Centra Cam's Outlet Store," said Centra Cam board member Gord Graham. McClelland receives satisfaction from being able to help out where there is a need. "The Outlet Store is a nice clean place and the people who are there are all friendly," she said. "I would rather be helping there than sitting around and not doing anything." Centra Cam Vocational Training Association has 76 staff, 53 of whom work full-time. "We continue to focus a lot of energy on the area of safety throughout the organization," said Graham. "It is important to us that our employees and volunteers have a safe working environment. As opportunities for other staff training presents itself, we attempt to have staff attend. In order to provide a quality program to our clients we need to have qualified staff delivering the services."

pieces of winter wear in 2011, including coats, mitts, toques, sweaters, boots and scarves to many individuals and families within Camrose. "We were able to assist more customers with getting the items they needed in a timely manner," said Skjonsberg. The Centra Cam Outlet Store saw gross income increase from $60,044 in 2010-11 to $189,637. Revenue is used to support the Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot, as well as other areas of need within the Association. A new service offered by Centra Cam in the past year was "Your Day Event Rentals." "We learned a lot about the world of weddings," said Skjonsberg. "The staff and clients organized a system that will make rentals less stressful." Centra Cam Vocational Training Association has 33 cli-

ents who are involved in regular paid employment, 27 of whom have maintained the same job over the last year. Sixty-eight clients are accessing the services of the Community Options Volunteer Experiences department, which oversees 27 regular placements that involve working with seniors, children, the health unit, churches and the Camrose Police Service. Nineteen clients received individualized weekly classes based on their interests in areas of reading, math, money skills, scrapbooking, knitting or sewing. Eighteen clients are participating in the Odd Job Squad, which offers a different alternative to individuals who are interested in employment and making money but are not ready for or do not want a job. Centra Cam received a grant of $50,000 from the City of Camrose in 2011-12, as the third installment of a $500,000

commitment from the City of Camrose, and $11,218 from the Culture and Community Spirit Program. Regular annual fundraisers include a lefse and pie sale, Christmas fudge sale, bake sales, the bowl-a-thon, booths at Jaywalkers' Jambooree and the Show and Shine, an Outlet Store anniversary sale and barbecue on parade day. Skjonsberg said she is pleased at the progress Centra Cam has made over the past 33 years. "I know that through our growth we have improved in what we do, and in many areas of our operation we are very successful. I think the board has done an exceptional job of leading us to where we are today. They took some risks and with risk comes change. And with change comes the growth we have experienced."

Live your best life with cancer Submitted by Colleen Lindholm, Camrose Primary Care Network

More than 100,000 people in Alberta have been treated for cancer, and many of them suffer psychological distress, feel immobilized by fears of the cancer coming back and have difficulties resuming work and family routines. To help people cope with the aftermath of their disease, the Camrose Primary Care Network, along with CancerBridges and Wellspring Calgary, are collaborating to host two free events open to cancer survivors and their caregivers/families, as well as health care professionals in our community. The sessions are Healing and Cancer – a full day retreat with Dr. Rob Rutledge, on Friday, October 19, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Edgeworth Centre Community Room #2 and Living Your Best Life with Cancer and Beyond – A Cancer Symposium Saturday, October 20, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Bailey Theatre. The Cancer Symposium on October 20 will share the latest research about survivorship and provide information on simple and practical ways to help make the transition back into everyday life when living with a cancer diagnosis. The symposium will also be helpful and informative to caregivers and families, as well as health care professionals who work cancer patients and their families. “Survivors may suffer with existential and spiritual concerns about death and dying and look at the future in a new way, one that their families and friends may not understand,” says Mike Lang, program coordinator at CancerBridges. “Our research indicates that many cancer survivors struggle with ongoing physical symptoms as well as achieving life balance and a purpose.” The Symposium will feature six highly acclaimed speakers which include: Janine Giese-Davis, Ph.D. – Support For Living Your Best Life Fall 2012 – Highlights of Survivorship Research and New Developments; Dr. Kevin Wallace –

Living Well With Cancer; John Bruce – Survivor Story “Cancer, Come Sit By Me”; Mike Lang, Cancer Bridges – Survivor Story and Film; Dr. Linda Carlson – Complementary Therapies for Cancer Survivors: What works? Lisa Belanger, MSc, PhD Candidate – Exercise and Cancer Survivorship. The day prior to the Cancer Symposium, on Friday, October 19, the PCN is very pleased to partner with Calgary Wellspring in offering Healing and Cancer – a Full Day Retreat with Dr. Rob Rutledge from Dalhousie University. Dr. Rutledge is a leading Canadian Oncologist and provider of integrative health programs, and author of “Healing Circle”. The retreat is designed for people with a diagnosis of cancer and accompanying family member or caregiver. Participants will learn about complete cancer care, stress reduction techniques, the body-mind-spirit connection, meditation and includes small and large group discussions. "A day-long seminar is the perfect opportunity to learn and practice the healing skills that can make a tremendous difference after a cancer diagnosis. People will learn how to get the best care from the medical system, the healthy lifestyle habits and proven skills like meditation and stress-reduction. And it's a great way to connect with others on the healing journey," said Dr. Rutledge. “Wellspring Calgary is so pleased to be working collaboratively with Camrose PCN on this ‘Journey of Wellness’. We have had the honour of several workshops with Dr. Rob Rutledge and know that our members value his work and his writing highly. Increasingly compelling research emerges about the value of dealing with cancer in an integrative approach, working on the body, mind and spirit,” said Anna Carnell, Program Manager, Wellspring Calgary. Carnell adds, “Dr. Rob Rutledge embodies this ethic with great warmth and humanity. A board member of CAPO, Cana-

dian Association of Psychosocial Oncology, and CPOP, Canadian Psychosocial Oncology Partnership, he makes it a priority to facilitate collaboration and ongoing dialogue and research in this area.” “The Camrose PCN physicians and team of health care providers have recognized the importance of committing to providing support to individuals that have been diagnosed with cancer and are very excited about bringing these events to our community,” said Stacey Strilchuk, PCN executive director. “We are fortunate to have the experts from CancerBridges, Wellspring Calgary and Dr. Rob Rutledge to collaborate with us in supporting, informing, and empowering patients, families and caregivers of those travelling a cancer journey, in a way that is meaningful and relevant to them.” The Alberta CancerBridges (Building Research Innovation into the Development and Growth of Excellence in Survivorship Care) team is a large provincial collection of people with special interest in researching and delivering evidence-based survivorship care. The team members include researchers, physicians, oncologists and survivors located mostly in Alberta. For more information about CancerBridges, visit their web-site at www. cancerbridges.ca. Wellspring Calgary is a charitable organization which supports, informs and empowers those diagnosed with cancer by helping them address the fear, isolation, disruption and practical problems which cancer can bring to their lives. In operation since 2007 and an affiliate of the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation in Toronto, Wellspring Calgary programs and services are informed by evidence and offered free of charge and without referral in a warm, caring, and welcoming community-based centre nestled in the trees near the Bow River.

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.

Annual Pet Walk helps fund animal care costs By Murray Green The Battle River Animal Protection Society’s (BRAPS) fifth annual Pet Walk to help fund animal care services will be held at the Stoney Creek Centre on Sunday, Oct. 14. BRAPS president Laura Houseman wants to make this year's a bigger event because the need for animal care is higher. “The Pet Walk is an important fundraising event of the year,” Laura said. “We have had a lot of orphaned kittens come to us this summer and we are looking for homes and people to adopt them.” Registration begins at noon and the Pet Walk is slated to start at 1 p.m. “People must look after their own pets. Cats, birds and other pets are allowed in the Pet Walk, but keep in mind the major-

ity of the pets will be dogs,” said Laura. “You don't need a pet to be involved in the walk. Some former animal owners walk in memory of a previous pet that they have had.” Proceeds go towards the cost of animal care that includes veterinarian fees, spaying or neutering, lodging and food. Pledge forms are available at Global Pets and Fiona’s coffee house on Main Street and Laura is encouraging pet owners to bring their pets with a leash to take part in the walk through the river valley. A barbecue and prizes will be awarded after the walk. For more information about the Pet Walk or BRAPS contact Monica at 780-679-5607 or Laura at 780-673-0033.

Now is the opportunity to clean out all those half-empty containers that may be dangerous if dumped down the drain, poured on the ground, or even sent to the Camrose Landfill. Every householder uses products in the house and garden containing chemicals that are hazardous when disposed of improperly. 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 5 and Saturday, October 6, 2012 at the PUBLIC WORKS YARDS. Keep your materials in their original containers. If the container is broken or cracked, place it inside 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 household hazardous wastes are: -

Adhesives Aerosols Ammonia Art supplies Bleach Barbecue starter

-

Cleaning fluids Disinfectants Drain cleaners Flea powder Herbicides Insecticides

-

Metal polish Oven cleaner Pesticides Pharmaceuticals Photography chemicals Rodent poison

-

Solvents Swimming pool chemicals Waxes Wood preservatives
