Cargill announces plans for crushing facility By Dan Jensen

Cargill broke ground for a proposed new canola crushing facility south of Camrose on Dried Meat Lake Road Oct. 1. "We have purchased the land and we intend to have the facility ready in time for the 2014 canola harvest," said Cargill communications manager Brigitte Burgoyne. Camrose County council and Camrose City council still need to pass a series of bylaws before the project can officially proceed. "There are still a few hoops that Cargill will have to go through before it becomes reality," said Camrose County reeve Don Gregorwich. The proposed facility is expected to have the capacity to process 3,500 tonnes per day of canola seed. "The initial annual crush volume is expected to be approximately 850,000 tonnes," said a project summary from Cargill. "The finished products will include approximately 1,500 tonnes per day of food grade canola oil and 2,000 tonnes per day of canola meal animal feed." Cargill believes the construction of the proposed facility will generate 800,000 manhours of employment. Operation and maintenance would require approximately 50 full-time staff. "We don't have a cost yet because we haven't determined the exact scope of the project," said Burgoyne. "We are still in the planning stages." Cargill has applied to both the County and the City to redistrict the land for the facility from agricultural to industrial usage. "We're planning to give first reading to a redistricting bylaw Oct. 9 (today)," said Gregorwich. "The bylaw will be advertised, after which there will be an opportunity for county residents to have their say in a public hearing Nov. 27." County council is also expected to give first readings

to a bylaw that would close a county road for a railroad spur, and a bylaw that formalizes the area structure plan. The facility as proposed would tap into the City of Camrose raw water and waste water system, and use potable water from Camrose County. Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development will need to provide approvals for Cargill to construct, operate and reclaim the plant under the environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and the Water Act. The new facility would be the

first crushing plant to be built in Alberta in the last 30 years. "This is a tremendous opportunity for Alberta's agriculture sector," said Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development Verlyn Olson in a presentation to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce last Wednesday. "The addition of value added operations, such as this processing plant, helps to further diversify our agriculture sector and enhance our competitiveness and ability to meet the demands of consumers in Alberta and in the global marketplace."

Ken Stone, commercial manager for Cargill's Canadian canola processing business, said the proposed new facility will enable Cargill to offer new marketing opportunities for canola producers in Alberta. "This is our second major Canadian investment in canola crushing and demonstrates our confidence in the continued growth and competitiveness of the canola industry in this country. The (proposed) facility will have the capacity to process both conventional and specialty canola and see which will enable us to significantly

increase our contracting programs in the area." Cargill's project summary notes that the proposed plant will service canola growers within a wide radius and result in higher prices paid for crush grade seed. It also notes that the unused portions of land it has purchased are expected to remain in wetland or agriculture, with canola planted on a sustainable rotation. Reeve Gregorwich said the proposed plant represents a significant economic opportunity for Camrose County, the City of Camrose and a good portion of east central Alberta. "There are generations of residents, both urban and rural, that would be positively affected." Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers welcomed the news that Cargill wants to establish a plant in Camrose. "It is the best news that our region has had," he said. "We are really excited about it for the County and the City. It is going to have a very positive impact downstream on businesses, whether it is farm machinery, trucking or restaurants. "We are looking forward to the day this opens." Mark Stonacek, president of Cargill's North American grain and oilseed business, said canola continues to be a very competitive crop for the Canadian grower and Camrose is an excellent location for value-added canola processing. "In the 2012-13 growing season, canola acres in Canada were over 21 million; we see this as an indication that the industry will continue to grow, driven by competitive access to a large North American livestock industry for canola protein meal and continued strong demand for canola oil. We are very excited about this new opportunity and believe it positions Cargill, the Camrose area and the Alberta farmer for future growth in the canola business."

Rotary Club sets sights on spring for Youth Centre build By Dan Jensen

The Rotary Club of Camrose has set its sights on spring of 2013 for the start of construction on a new Camrose Youth Centre. Rotary members have been meeting with City of Camrose for the last few months to make plans for the centre, which would be located immediately north of the Food Bank. "We have been verbally assured that the City will donate the land as well as pick up the servicing costs," said David Francoeur, a member of the Rotary Club of Camrose executive responsible for community service. The youth centre will serve first and foremost as a muchneeded new home for the Camrose Scouts and Girl Guides. The Scouts currently occupy one of the former army barracks behind Camrose and District Centennial Museum and are forced to store canoes and other equipment outside, while the Girl Guides have equipment

scattered around different facilities. "The building the Scouts are in is really a place that needs to be condemned," said Francoeur. "It was built by the army in the 1940s and was only supposed to last five years."

The youth centre will also serve as a place for Camrose Minor Sports to store various types of sporting equipment that is now being kept in the caretaker's house across from the Community Centre.

While the Scouts and Girl Guides would be the prime tenants, Rotary feels the centre could be used by many different youth serving organizations in the community. "We were told by Community Services that a centre like this was proposed about 30 years ago but for whatever reason never got off the ground," said Francoeur. "There is definitely a demand for this and we are looking forward to assisting." Rotary projects the total cost of the 4,500 to 5,000 square foot youth centre to come in at between $300,000 and $400,000. The club has earmarked for the building $25,000 it received from a local family, and believes it will be able to raise $75,000 from fundraising events throughout the community, including the Black Tie event. It has also applied for grants from the government's Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) and Community Initiatives (CIP) programs.

The Scouts are hoping to raise $50,000. Rotary feels it will be possible to reduce the total cost of the facility through donated labour and materials. Former Rotary Club of Camrose president Ron Grue, who helped Habitat for Humanity Camrose with its ReStore building a few years ago, has already had discussions about the proposed building design, and will be heading the construction. "He is basically the guy who has the know-how to go about doing something like this," said Francoeur. The Rotary Club of Camrose has been investigating the idea of undertaking another major project for the last couple of years. "We put a couple of advertisements in the papers asking people what we should do as a project, and reply that stood out was a youth centre," said Francoeur. "We thought it would be something the club could support both through our finances and through donated labour."

Pilger wins farm package By Dan Jensen

Kurt Pilger couldn't believe his luck when he was informed recently he was the winner of $20,000 worth of Westeel products for his Camrose area farm. Pilger's name was drawn from thousands of entries that were submitted by farmers across Canada in a Westeel Total Farm contest. "I entered my name when I purchased a Westeel fuel tank at UFA in Camrose, thinking nothing of it," said Pilger. Westeel territories sales manager Bob Henderson said the contest was held to promote the fact that Westeel carries a large line of products, from bins and fuel tanks to upright conveyors and loading equipment. "People think of us for our bins but we are much more than that," said Henderson. "We have the total farm package." Westeel sells its products throughout the prairie provinces, as well as the northern United States. UFA in Camrose is one of the largest distributors. Pilger has been a fan of Westeel products for a number of years. "We put up a Westeel bin a couple of years ago and we have other Westeel bins as well," he said. Pilger farms the same land 11 miles south east of Camrose that his father farmed when he came to the area 100 years ago. "Back then they would have needed three or four bins to hold what one of these new bins holds," he said.

With this design, the recoil of the fired shell comes directly back or inline with the stronger part of the inner shoulder, making the rifle more pleasant to shoot, especially when a long day at the range is expected. The X-Bolt White Gold is beautifully adorned with a polished stainless steel receiver that is drilled and tapped for scope mounts with engravings both the front and rear. This rifle also has a polished stainless steel barrel. Its stock is a gloss-finished, finely checkered with a rosewood forend and grip cap. The White Gold’s beauty is really on the inside, in how it shoots and what makes it so accurate. The threelever Feather Trigger™ system is probably the most comfortable, simple trigger on any bolt-action rifle on the market. There is no take-up or creep and very little over-travel. This is the kind of trigger serious hunters and shooters demand. Next is the superb free-floating barrel bar with target Crown, then triple-checked for interior finish, finis straightness and air-gauged for total uniformity. No doubt, this rifle has it all.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Fighting fires is no picnic! This is Fire Prevention Week, not only in Camrose but throughout the province, the nation, and the United States. The consequences of fire can be devastating, causing injury and death, loss of home, income and irreplaceable treasures. We are well advised to pay attention to the fire prevention messages that firefighters bring us, not only during Fire Prevention Week but throughout the year. Fire departments deserve our extreme gratitude for the safety practices they recommend to folks of all ages. They go to schools to inform students about fire prevention measures; they help inform adults by doing home inspections; they distribute brochures, placemats in restaurants and more, all with the ultimate objective of preventing fire and the resulting consequences. Too often, we have the information and good intentions regarding fire safety and prevention, but fail to practice them. Does your fire alarm work? Does your family have a “Two Ways Out” escape plan in case of fire? You know what other questions to ask yourself. I now shift attention from fire prevention to considering the risks that firefighters take when they are called. I do so because I think it is important that the public fully appreciate the health and safety hazards associated with their work. According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, the hazards fall into six general categories: biological, chemical, ergonomic, physical, safety and psychological. Rescuing bleeding victims may expose firefighters to contagious and infectious diseases such as AIDS, hepatitis B and C. Depending on the materials being burned, the smoke may be toxic and commonly contains carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, nitrogen dioxide and others. In addition, fire depletes air of oxygen which can cause loss of physical performance, confusion and even the inability to escape. Firefighters are often faced with extreme physical exertion, working in awkward situations, lifting, while wearing heavy protective equipment. Not surprising is that heat stress is common among firefighters. It is generated not only by the fire but by the physically active body in the protective clothing they are required to wear. Firefighters work outdoors so they may be exposed to extreme temperatures, both hot or cold. They often experience extreme noise, too. Firefighting is a risky occupation. There is risk of explosions, collapsing floors, walls, roofs. Even getting to the scene of the fire can be risky because of the need for speed and sometimes a curious public that doesn’t get out of the way. Exposure to uncertain and grave danger is psychologically stressful. Being a firefighter is no picnic. Let us fully appreciate the men and women who choose risky firefighting careers. Let us show that gratitude by practicing fire prevention, thereby reducing the number of hazardous calls for their services.

I recently became aware of the financial crisis facing the Bailey Theatre. I have attended several functions in this beautiful theatre, and am impressed with both the historical ambiance of the facility and the technical upgrades which make it a valuable community resource. It is my understanding that the Bailey Theatre’s financial picture is at a crisis point and a decision has to be made immediately as to the future of the facility. Will the City of Camrose offer operational support, and would it be appropriate for the city to support such a facility? People need to be informed of the reality of the city’s current annual expenditures on “Culture and Recreation.” This information is available at the city’s web site. The financial

statements tell us that in the 2012 Operating Budget, a net amount of $115,322.00 was spent to operate the Community Centre, $523,411.00 to operate the swimming pool, $184,432.00 to operate the Recreation Centre, $783,412.00 to operate the building formerly known as the Edgeworth Centre, as well as several hundred thousand dollars to fund maintenance of parks. On top of this, $117,920.00 was spent to operate the Camrose Golf Course. In total, over two million dollars was spent in 2012 to fund recreation in Camrose. Recreation is important, and Camrose citizens have supported these annual expenditures. In contrast, in the year 2012, $160,504.00 was spent by the city on the operation of Cultural Services, which include the Chuck McLean Arts Centre, Canada Day, library maintenance, and assorted community groups. This is less than 10% of the amount spent on Recreation. Comparatively, is this what the people of Camrose feel is appropriate? Recreation and the Arts are both important parts of a healthy community. Is the dollar amount spent on the support of culture and the arts in Camrose reasonable, or should it be increased to include the ongoing operation of the Bailey Theatre? Will the Bailey Theatre and new Perform-

ing Arts Centre complement each other and provide a wealth of opportunities for the Performing Arts in Camrose? This is a decision the citizens of Camrose must make now, and can be made most appropriately when people are informed. What do you, as a citizen, think? If you are concerned about the level of support for the arts, it is important that you let your councillors know. Dorothy J. Marshall Rosalind Appreciation evening

Student assessments concern parents By Murray Green

A group of concerned parents from the Camrose and surrounding area visited the Battle River School Division regular meeting on Sept. 27 to discuss changes to the way students are assessed. Spokesperson Jen de Hoog shared those views specifically on the Administrative Procedure 360. The procedure was developed by some Battle River teachers, trustees and division leaders. "I became aware of some changes that were going to take place in regard to assessment about two years ago. At the time, this procedure was brought only into the elementary system where I had two children. There was literature sent home from the school that was somewhat difficult to completely understand. Change can be hard, but I remained optimistic and open to it. Last year this procedure was brought into the junior high level where I had one child. After two years with this system my optimism has grown into frustration, confusion and a lot of unanswered questions," explained Jen. Jen has had many conversations with several different teachers, principals and school board administration in order to try to fully understand this new assessment procedure. "I have tried to obtain information from the schools as well as on the BRSD website. It has been very difficult to find and understand background information

or research that has been done with regard to this procedure." The three key ideas in the Administrative Procedure include teacher created learning targets for students, clear feedback to students on learning targets and helpful advice and strategies to hit expected learning targets. "When looking into these three areas, my perception was, there were many things that BRSD and their teachers were already performing and to my knowledge succeeding at," added Jen. "Some of the reading I have done on the theories behind this procedure do sound very good. I am encouraged about rich and descriptive feedback about my child's learning from teachers. I feel this is very important to both students and parents." The procedure has many great aspects, but there are still areas of concern. "The accountability in this new procedure for student assessment, as I see it, falls 100 per cent on the teacher. A teacher is asked to develop an Individual Program Plan for each student to achieve success. If a student has no consequences and does not complete their assignments or tests, then how often must a teacher revisit the student's individual plan." Jen said it could be at the expense of another child waiting to move forward. "In our quest to leave no one behind, are we holding too many back? A student needs to be accountable too. Assignments done, and

in on time is not a non learner outcome. These characteristics must be a part of their grade. As a school division and as teachers who have so much influence on my children we need to teach positive characteristics because these add up to positive outcomes." Parents want to prepare their children for life after Grade 12. In the procedure, the “reporting” to students and parents consists of four levels of assessment. Beginning, Developing, Achieving and Excelling. "There is also a missing evidence component. These four levels are on a very broad range. Without percentages students and parents struggle to know exactly where they are at," said Jen. "For students in the category of achieving for instance, how exactly do they know if they are at the bottom of that range (approximately 67 per cent) or at the top (approximately 83 per cent)? That's a pretty significant variation. And, what motivation does the student have to go above and beyond if they are receiving the assessment of excelling?" Jen added, "In the last two years there have been some very obvious inconsistencies in my children's assessments on assignments, quizzes, tests and report cards. These inconsistencies have not been adequately explained when challenged or questioned. It seems as though there is no real guideline to follow in how grades are determined." Continued on page 9

Assessments a concern Continued from page 8

Jen believes that a percentage based system combined with descriptive feed back on learner outcomes would prevent a lot of confusion. At the high school level, there are many scholarships and post secondary entrances that are based on early percentage results. "If Alberta Education requires percentage based records why would we not provide this for them in all assessments?" Communication is a key factor in the whole process. "I feel the communication between the school board division, schools and parents on this procedure has been very minimal and this is adding to the frustration and confusion. I feel the division needs to allow for the greatest number of parents to be involved in the procedure and to take their input seriously. BRSD needs to be more proactive in communicating this procedure to parents," she said. Jen requested a forum to educate parents and students and allow them to voice their questions and concerns with school trustees and administration. The board received the presentation for information and will review it.

Support for Sahakarini


Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson presented a cheque for $18,500 from the Community Initiatives Program to Sahakarini executive director Tif McNaughton Sept. 7. Sahakarini will be using the money to assist with the installation of stoves and filters in homes in Guatemala, support Guatemalan women escaping from domestic abuse, and to provide micro-credit funding for worthwhile projects.

The 1980s was one of the raciest decades Already apparent for several seasons now, the influence of the 1980s is now reaching its height. If some of us are still hesitating about slipping on leggings or wearing a wide-shouldered, tailored suit, it’s time to succumb to the trend which has definitely become a must! If the woman of the '80s flaunted a never-failing selfconfidence, this season’s cuts

and colours can do just the same for today’s woman, whether it’s in the professional world or in the trendiest of night clubs. Shimmering materials such as sequins and satin blend beautifully with the opulence of leather and fur. Metallic finishes and vibrant tones of blue, red and pink electrify the omnipresent blacks and greys. Among emblematic

clothing to be rediscovered: loose-fitting, masculine jackets sometimes gathered at the waist with a thin belt; loose sweaters with batwing sleeves; tapered pants; minidresses and pencil skirts. City-style accessories complete the '80s look, whether it involves the long leather glove, the ankle boot or the thigh boot. This season the latter has been designed

with amazing chic by certain designers. Thanks to sober lines and the use of top-of-theline materials, the result is a world away from the gleaming boots which Julia Roberts wore in “Pretty Woman.” All you have to do now is lacquer your hair and dust off your reddest of red lipsticks and you’ll be ready to revisit one of the raciest decades of the 20th century!

When the winter winds start blowing there’s nothing better than wrapping up in a coat which will not only keep us warm and cozy but will allow us to look stylish even on the coldest winter day. The selection now available in stores is very classic, a look of timelessness... there is nothing flashy or tawdry, just classic lines and sober colours which we can liven up with more colourful and original accessories. The classic cut and simple lines of the trench-coat style made of worsted gabardine, suits just about every figure and all occasions. Double-breasted styles are making waves on the fashion front as well. Capes were also much in evidence on the fashion runways, making a big comeback this season. Several designers propose long or short versions, giving a vintage touch to any outfit. The wrap coat, very popular in the '80s and '90s, has also attained the status of classic, giving it pride of place in the fall and winter collections of many designers. This loose and belted overcoat makes for a cozy cocoon especially if made from cashmere or alpaca. It’s characterized by padded shoulders and wide, notched collars. Despite a few flashes of colour on the runways – blue, red, violet – sober colours, suitable for any occasion, such as grey, chamois and black seem much more popular. Plain fabrics dominate but some models catch the eye thanks to pretty paisley patterns or tartans.

Recycled fur ethical Through the ages, the warmth of real fur was the main feature of every woman’s cold-weather wardrobe. Today, though, the sensuality of fur makes it desirable for the mere pleasure of wearing it. Best of all, our increased awareness of animal rights has led to ways to appreciate real fur without putting the lives of animals at risk. Recycled fur allows us to enjoy unparalleled luxury and innovative fashion. It is trending strongly, and fashion aficionados with refined tastes are rushing to include recycled fur accessories in their wardrobes. Inherited fur coats that are out of fashion can be reborn as exquisite bags or scarves that will keep for many years to come, despite the ups and downs of the fashion world. The Harricana label, created 15 years ago, is defined by its passion for the art of recycling fur clothing. The company has been able to save the lives of more than 600,000 animals! You won’t find anything dull amongst these recycled pieces: they are impressive and innovative, each more original than the next. Recycled fur pieces can be found in a wide price range: a larger piece, created by a company using ethical manufacturing conditions, must be considered as an investment, one that will be recognized as top quality for many seasons to come.

Camrose has had a British invasion of its own with the Oysterband. The Oysterband is a modern folk-based British group that blends acoustic music with intense, sometimes rocking, sounds. Since 1978, the band has made 12 studio albums and has toured around the world on several occasions. The Oysterband has toured Canada and has stopped in Camrose before. "The last time we had them at Scalliwags, we had people flying in from as far away as California and Vancouver just to see them in a small intimate setting," said Geraint Osborne of the Rose City Roots Music Society. "We were packed and had to turn people away at the door. That's why we chose the Bailey Theatre this time around." You may want to pick up tickets at the Bailey box office soon for the Oct. 12 show. Today the band continues to mix folk tunes and original material. It strayed from that with a cover version of Canadian Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time." Visit www.oysterband. for more information on the band and the Bailey Theatre for tickets to the 8 p.m. show.

Young Camrosians assist the mayor with opening Several very young Camrosians were on hand to help Mayor Marshall Chalmers and facilities director, Henry Wong, officially open a colourful, brand new playground structure in the city. Youngsters can now enjoy a new playground structure located at 51st Street and 55th Avenue in Village Estates. Playgrounds in the city are on a rotating plan for replacement when their play value expires, their necessary maintenance is no longer cost effective and they reach

end of life. When a playground structure is identified for replacement, the city tries to consider the neighbourhood demographics and choose play elements that will reflect the neighbourhood. The new playground at Village Estates was replaced this summer and provides refreshed play value for families to experience. Dozens of playgrounds throughout the city provide play spaces for families at all stages and ages, and a great quality of life in Camrose.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER October 9, 2012


Hazel McClarty wins gold

Hazel McClarty won a gold medal at the Canada 55 Plus Games in Nova Scotia. By Dan Jensen

Hazel McClarty can truthfully say she is the best in Canada. The former Camrose resident who now resides in Strathmore won the gold medal in the 4,000 metre time predicted walk event at the August 29 to September 2 Canada 55 Plus Games in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. "You give the officials the time you think you can complete the walk in and whoever comes closest to that time over two days of competition without the use of any kind of a timepiece wins," said McClarty. "In the end I was only 7.5 seconds off the time I had predicted." McClarty was also entered in the 1,000 metre time predicted event walk. "That was my usual competition but I gave the wrong time so I didn't earn a medal." McClarty started training for the time predicted walk event two years ago after being diagnosed with cancer. "My goal initially was to make it to the Alberta 55 Plus Games in Fairview, where I was fortunate enough to win the gold," she said. "It was as a result of that finish that I was able to compete in the Canadian 55 Plus Championship." McClarty expressed appreciation for all the support she received. "I received a lot of well wishes when I was volunteering at Big Valley Jamboree. They knew I had cancer and they encouraged me to keep going." The next Canada 55 Plus Games will be held in Strathmore County in 2014.

Jytte Solvejg Nielsen

Ken Robert Rau

September 7, 1947 – September 19, 2012 Jytte was born in Ejsing, Denmark to Else and Peter Petersen. She was the youngest of three children. She grew up in Denmark learning the skills of a homemaker from her mother and grandmother. She fondly remembered the summers she spent with her grandmother. Jytte had a natural gift for all things sewing. She made fine needlepoint projects at the age of 9. Her family and friends enjoyed the cooking and baking skills she learned as a young child for over 50 years. Jytte married Niels, a mechanic from Soby, Denmark on August 8, 1970 in Kølær Church, Denmark. They settled in Herning where they enjoyed Danish folk dancing. She spent four years getting her certification at a trade school, after which she managed a radio and lighting store. They enjoyed trips to Norway, Sweden and Spain. A daughter, Heidi was born in 1973. She then became a stay-at-home mom who also ran a registered day home. A son, Martin, followed in 1977. In May of 1980 the family emigrated to Canada. They settled outside of Camrose. As a skilled and dedicated homemaker she filled the home with her crafts and sewing projects. They were admired and treasured by all. Her garden and flowers were immaculate year round. There was always a welcome cup of coffee and home baked treats for all who came to visit. Her face would light up when grandchildren were around. With special treats, crafts, games, toys Mormor/Farmor’s house has been a special place that grandchildren look forward to visiting. Jytte passed away after a long battle with cancer September 19, 2012. Jytte will forever be remembered by her husband Niels; daughter Heidi (Russell); son Martin (Heather); grandchildren Keenan, Olivia, April, Gavin and Morgan; brother Flemming (Tina, Kenneth and Daniel); numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Alberta. A celebration of Jytte’s life will be held at 2:00-4:00 p.m., on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at Weber’s Mount Pleasant Chapel in Camrose, Alberta. Memorial donations may be made to S.T.A.R.S.

October 13, 1985 – September 13, 2012 Ken was born on October 13, 1985 in Daysland, Alberta to parents Clifford and Marliss. He was the first of three children. Ken was six months old when his family moved north of High Prairie to persue farming. At the age of seven, Ken’s family moved back to the city of Camrose where Ken attended school at Chester Ronning and Charlie Killam. In 2000, Ken started high school at Camrose Composite High School where he joined football the first year he was there. He continued playing football through to his graduating year in 2004. Shortly after high school, Ken pursued a career in welding. He attended NAIT where he obtained his journeyman and B-pressure tickets and achieved top in his class. Ken had a wide variety of interests. He was a member of two pool leagues in Camrose, and enjoyed hunting and fishing. At age 19, Ken began bracket racing at Castrol Raceway. In no time, he became well known for the bright yellow duster he streaked down the quarter mile every weekend. In 2012, the duster wasn’t on the track as often because Ken started his own welding company, Boom Boom’s Welding. Ken is survived by his parents Marliss and Clifford; brother Dan; sister Karen; grandmothers Jan White and Isabelle Cire; grandfather Albert Rau; and many close aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by grandfather Robert White; cousin Samantha White; and uncle Kenneth Rau.

Macala Jane Kneeland

February 24, 1938 – October 13, 2011 Missing You Always You never said, “I’m leaving” You never said, “Goodbye” You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why A million times I needed you A million times I cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died In life, I loved you dearly In death, I love you still In my heart, I hold a place That only you can fill It broke my heart to lose you But you didn’t go alone A part of me went with you The day God took you home Love Pauline, Lawrence, Darryl, Cindy, Sadie, Britt

May 31, 1997 – October 13, 2004 A Child of Mine I’ll lend you for a little while A child of mine, God said For you to love the while she lives And mourn for when she’s dead. It may be six or seven years, Or forty-two or -three. But will you, till I call her back Take care of her for me? She’ll bring her charms to gladden you And – should her stay be brief – You’ll have her lovely memories As a solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay For all from earth returns, But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the whole world over In my search for teachers true. And from all beings that crowd life’s land I have chosen you. Now, will you give her all your love Nor think the labor vain? Nor hate me when I come to take This lent child back again? I fancied that I heard you say “Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joys Thy child will bring The risk of grief we’ll run. We will shelter her with tenderness We’ll love her while we may – And for the happiness we have known Forever grateful stay. But should the angels come for her Much sooner than we planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes And try – to understand.”

The CAMROSE BOOSTER October 9, 2012


Maureen Francis Pfeffer Maureen Francis Pfeffer was born to Francis and Geneva Kehoe at Camrose, Alberta on September 26, 1935 and passed away after a brief battle with cancer on August 29, 2012 at the age of 76 years. She was the first of seven children with three sisters and three brothers to follow after her. She started school in Vegreville and then attended New Salem School in the Camrose district until Grade 9. Maureen cleaned New Salem School while she was a student there, starting work at a young age and making a whopping $15 for the year. After Grade 9, she moved to Camrose to complete high school at Camrose High. Upon graduating, she worked at Marshall Wells Hardware Store. She also worked for AGT and, later in life, at Killam Co-op and Killam Hospital. In 1964, Maureen married Darrel Pfeffer and moved out to the farm in Strome, becoming a farm girl again. Together, they had six children. The first, Steven, died as an infant. Next came Mark, then Brian, Nancy, Janet and John. Once the children started coming, Maureen stayed home with the kids. She become a wonderful homemaker. She made clothes, Halloween costumes, afghans, toques and beautiful cakes. Maureen always made homemade cookies, bread and rubber aprons. Maureen and “Auntie” made dozens of donuts to treat their children. Maureen was very thrifty and was able to stretch a dollar better than anyone. She would darn socks, pick berries, grow a huge garden and preserve pickles, relishes, jams, jellies and even meat. She joined St. Peter’s CWL in 1964. She was honored with her 45-year pin in 2010 and continued to be an active member until her passing. Maureen’s other volunteer work included babysitting, catechism teaching and working with the Girl Guides organization. She was also willing to drive children and grandchildren to sports practices and games. Maureen mended clothes for many people around the area. Maureen was very crafty. She made beautiful handmade cards to send to family and friends. She was an exceptional quilter and had a keen eye for color and design. She could take any scrap of fabric and turn it into a masterpiece. The quilts she made will be family heirlooms to treasure. Other interests included watching baseball games, curling and horse jumping. She also enjoyed travelling when she could get away. Some trips over the years included driving to Alaska, annual fishing trips to Wolf Lake, a millennium trip to Nebraska with her sisters, trips to the mountains and a more recent trip to Nova Scotia and PEI with her daughters for her 75th birthday. A great treasure for Maureen was all her grandchildren. She taught them so many of her prized skills including cooking, baking, needlepoint, knitting, sewing and crocheting. She attended their sporting and school events and always enjoyed talking to them about their life’s adventures. Treasures made by Grandma for the grandchildren included I Spy quilts, pillowcases, aprons, toques, camp ponchos, mittens, scarves, tooth fairy pillows and pajamas. Over the few weeks before her passing, as people visited Maureen, the family heard people say she was “the best!” She was the best mom, the best grandma, the best sister, the best aunt, the best cousin, the best godmother, the best friend and the best mother-in-law! Maureen is survived by her three sons and two daughters, Mark (Tina) Pfeffer, Brian (Laura) Pfeffer, Nancy (Dale) Mizera, Janet (Derek) Banman and John (Leann) Pfeffer; 17 grandchildren; three sisters Vodie Marysiuk, Ann Winter and Cathy (Bill) Brandt; three brothers Jim (Fran) Keho, John (Marilyn) Kehoe and Dennis (Audrey) Kehoe; three sisters-inlaw; two brothers-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews. Maureen was predeceased by her husband Darrel Pfeffer; her parents; one son Steven Pfeffer; four brothers-in-law; and two sisters-in-law. A funeral service was held on Tuesday, September 4, 2012, at St. Peter’s Catholic Church near Strome, Alberta with Father Leon Kler officiating. She will be greatly missed. May her loving hands find peace and rest. The family of Maureen Pfeffer would like to thank everyone who helped make the loss of our beloved Mom and Grandmother more bearable by your acts of love and kindness. Thank you for the generous donations of food, flowers, for the visits, phone calls, prayers and monetary donations in Maureen’s memory. Also, a special thank you to St. Mary’s Hospital doctors and nurses who took such good care of Maureen during the short time she was there. We are forever grateful and words cannot express our heartfelt thanks.

Students at Chester Ronning were able to raise a total of $4,131.13 before heading out on their own walk, surpassing last year's fundraising total of $3,988.08.

Make sure you have a second way out Have Two Ways Out! is the theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7-13. Fire Prevention Week is recognized every October. During this week, fire departments across the nation will promote public awareness of the dangers of fire and the ways we can protect ourselves from fire. Despite the fact that fewer fire losses are reported in Canada, eight Canadians still die on average from fire every week. Most of these fires are preventable and caused by careless behaviour, which is why it is critical to educate Canadians about fire prevention. “This year's theme emphasizes the importance of making Canadians aware of simple preventive measures they can take to prevent disaster,” says City Fire and Life Safety Educator, Jeff Knopf. “Fire is unpredictable and moves faster than most people realize. Having a tried and true escape plan with two ways out is essential to ensuring your family’s safety should fire break out in your home.” The Camrose Fire Department recommends the following tips for planning your family’s escape: Make a map of your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room. Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan. Write the emergency tele-

Norsemen Inn brings back popular Oktoberfest beer By Murray Green The popular German Oktoberfest celebration is returning to Camrose. The Norsemen Inn owner Sean Willms, of the Tap Room and Gravity Lounge, freshly brewed a special German style beer that will be released for the Oktoberfest party from October 18 to 20. The long-time local hotel, restaurant and bar is the site of the only award winning freshly brewed micro brewery in Camrose. “We will be serving

the same Oktoberfest brew that went over well last year. We sold 500 litres of the beer in just three days. We will have a good special on the beer and glasses will be given away," said Sean. "We will have a double cocktail drink served in the mug and you get to keep the mug. It is called a double cocktail because we don't want to leave out the girls. They don't have to drink beer to get a mug. It will be a great party like last year." The band Brown Paper Bags will be playing your old

time rock and roll favourites on Saturday night. Sean learned a lot about Oktoberfest when he was training to be a brewmaster in Germany. "I got the idea when I was in Germany. I wanted to create an event in our bar and Oktoberfest is a great excuse to do that. Oktoberfest means fresh beer to me. We are going to have bratwurst and pretzels, and we are going to make it a great event again in our bar." The special Oktoberfest beer offers a different flavour

from the usual choices of Longship Lager and Eric the Red lager. "It is a very easy drinking beer as well; it is not as bitter as German beer can be. It is actually a lighter and smoother tasting beer, but it is darker and is a more complex beer," explained Sean. It is a German Octoberfest style of beer with six different malts and a little more hops than the beers we sell now. We followed the guidelines for making an Octoberfest beer, but we have North Americanized it a

bit because we didn't want to make it quite as bitter or as strong as it would be in Germany. We wanted people to be able to sit back and enjoy a few beers, rather than a full out non-stop drinking binge that occurs in Germany." In Canada, and rural Alberta, he wanted to tone it down a little to allow people to enjoy it more.

Have Two

October 7 to 13, 2012 • It Go to: FirePreve

The reality is… that when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes. Participate in the City of Camrose

“Great Fire Escape” Home Fire Drill Wednesday, Oct. 10, 6 p.m. Camrose Fire Department is encouraging Camrose families to develop a fire escape plan for their home and to take part in a city-wide fire drill. Firefighters will be patroling the city during that time to hand out prizes for participants! Call the Camrose Fire Department for more information – 780-672-2906.

It is important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That’s why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year’s theme,“Have 2 Ways Out!”, focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. It’s 3 a.m. You and your family are sound asleep and awake to the beeping smoke alarm. You are tired and confused from the effects of the smoke. You know you need to get to safety, but when you head for the front door, you find that escape route is blocked by fire that is spreading by the second. What do you do? While this scenario is one I hope you never have to encounter, the statistics tell us that many people do every day. According to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), one home structure fire was reported every 85 seconds in 2010. That added up to 369,500 home structure fires, which caused 13,350 injuries and 2,640 deaths. We also know that most fatal fires kill one or two people. However, in 2010, 19 home fires killed five or more people, resulting in 101 deaths. The numbers are scary, but there is something you can do to help ensure your family’s safety should a fire break out in your home: Have Two Ways Out! The Camrose Fire Department is teaming up with NFPA during Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, 2012, to urge residents to “Have Two Ways Out!” This year’s theme focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice.

Ways Out!

t’s Fire Prevention Week Only one-third of Canadians have both developed and practiced a home fire escape plan. And of the three-quarters of Canadians who do have an escape plan, less than half actually practiced it. As we saw in the scenario above, fire is unpredictable. Seconds and minutes can mean the difference between life and death. We want to ensure that Camrose residents know what to do if a fire breaks out in their home. Preparation is an important part of being able to deal with an emergency and it is crucial you take steps to prepare your family for the potential of a home fire by having an escape plan and practicing it. Although preparing for the unexpected is difficult, reviewing the information below and taking action based on it to plan for a fire could save lives. Camrose Fire Department recommends the following tips for planning your family’s escape: If you have children and want to make this a family activity • Make a map of your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room. • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan. • Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department on your escape plan. • Sound the smoke alarm and practice your escape drill with everyone living in your home. • Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator and practice the drill twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday. If your family is all adults: • Walk through your home and identify two ways out of each room. • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. • Make sure everyone knows the emergency number for your local fire department. • Practice your escape drill twice a year.

Athletes prepare for Femsport challenge next summer By Murray Green

A group of Camrose ladies is training for the Femsport Challenge in Fort Saskatchewan next July. Adrenaline Gym is holding a workshop on Oct. 14 to instruct people about how to be trainers for the sport so the gym will receive accreditation as a Femsport training facility. "The workshop is to show the participants training techiniques, exercise tips, suggestions and practice runs for the sport and for the gym to receive accreditation. It's also a great time for people to see if they're interested in Femsport," said Beckie Kuefler. "Adrenaline Gym loves the philosophy of Femsport and is excited about becoming an official training facility." Femsport was founded in September 2001 and its mission is to provide a very unique community event, which challenges female athletes and non-athletes alike to test their strength, agility, power, endurance and speed. Any female over 19 and at any fitness level can compete. There are no pre-qualifications and it focuses strictly on physical fitness through a fun, challenging and rewarding experience. Beckie, along with Leanne White, Clarissa Michel and Jessi Sears have already committed to training for next summer, but they want a few more women to join them in the competition. "Back in July, I watched the competition on television and brought the idea to John (at Adrenaline Gym). He took the idea to Beckie and it has kind of exploded from there," explained Jessi. "Femsports is about women supporting women. It is something you should do once in a lifetime. Some people want to run a marathon; I want to participate in Femsports. It is a fitness challenge that is going to test you." Leanne heard about the events from Jessi. "She made me

watch the video. At first I said no. But, I think it will be lots of fun. It will provide another challenge for myself." Clarissa was immediately up for a new adventure. "It is empowering when you train and have a focus for your body and a mentality to see what you can do." Beckie also wants to push herself to a new level. "Femsport is a way to prove to myself what I can do. I want to show that I am a strong woman and can challenge myself. My body is capable, I need a challenge to have a purpose of going further." The mental challenge is more important than the physical well-being. "In real life I'm never going to get the opportunity to push a car or flip a tractor tire that weights 400 pounds," said Jessi. "It is a mental challenge and it is stuff that we do every day in the gym. It will just be with a different apparatus." A mental challenge is important to keep learning and improving. "I don't care if it is quilting, baking cookies or Femsport, you have to want to do it," said Beckie. "If you don't want to be there, you will never be able to do it. You have to want it. We are going to train very hard for this and if our minds are not with us, our body will not be able to do it." Leanne added that "Your mind is your worst enemy. It will shut your body down. If your head tells you that you can only do one more, then you can do only one more," she explained. "With training, you can push yourself so that you can do five more. You get a sense of accomplishment that I did that." Mental blocks have to be pushed aside. "Some exercises I get this mental block that I can't do them. In order to compete in this competition, I have to get past that mental block," said Beckie.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster The Camrose women of Femsport are Jessi Sears and Clarissa Michel, back row, and Leanne White and Beckie Kuefler, front row. The sport provides challenges for female athletes and non-athletes alike to test their strength, agility, power, endurance, and speed. The group is looking for a few more athletes.

"It's not really competitive with each other, but is an opportunity to push harder because we have each other to be there for us," said Clarissa. "You can do it as a group. It is not about who is better, but more about training hard and being fit. It is about accomplishments and you have teammates, family and friends to help you do it." Beckie added, "Who else is going to pick us up, dust us off and push us to do more. We need each other. The other ladies will not let me not do that. They

might have to get rough with me, but they will push me. They are going to give me support because they are in it too. "It doesn't matter if you rank number one or at the bottom," added Beckie. "If you finish this competition, you are a winner." The gym is behind this event because the owners feel Femsport is a good event for all women. "We are holding the workshop because we want to be an official training facility, so we can help others reach their goals," said Beckie. "The seminar will inform

us on how we will be judged and we will receive tips on how to improve training for the event. It will explain how to get past mental blocks. We want eight to ten women and people need to pre-register." People can enter as a team or individuals. "Ideally, we would like to enter two teams in Femsports," said Beckie. About 75 women enter the Fort Saskatchewan event each year. For more information on the workshop and Femsports, contact Beckie at 780-679-0350.

Parsons named new cross-country skiing coach By Christopher Thrall

The University of Alberta’s Augustana Vikings and Camrose Ski Club Junior Vikings have combined forces to hire a new head coach for cross-country skiing. Les Parsons is excited about the challenge of building on the long tradition of cross-country skiing and biathlon in the Camrose region. He arrived in Camrose two weeks ago, just in time to help host the Augustana Vikings Wall of Fame event and help recognize longtime friends for their legacy of leadership. Parsons brings a wealth of thirty years of coaching experience to share with our nordic athletes in Camrose. He began competing in cross-country skiing at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. For 15 years, he coached the Vermilion Nordic and Lakeland College Ski Teams. Four of his Vermilion athletes developed into national team athletes in cross-country skiing, biathlon, cross-country running and track and field. Parsons was the club coach of 2002 Olympic Gold Medalist Beckie Scott from Vermilion. He then coached in Quebec City for seven years, with con-

Les Parsons will be splitting his time with the Vikings and the junior skiing club.

tinued success as the club coach of 2011 World Champion Gold Medalist Alex Harvey. For the past four years, Parsons coached in Edmonton, producing yet another Youth Olympian Matt Saurette. However, Parsons measures his success not by medal wins but by the impact he has in his role as a coach. He contributes to the development of young athletes, helps them to become good people and leaders in our society.

Parsons' mentor when he first started coaching was Garry Gibson, who was his professor in the Camrose Lutheran College Outdoor Leadership Program back in 1982. Gibson shared his coaching philosophy which has stuck to this day: “We are not coaching cross-country skiing: we are coaching people who cross-country ski.” Anyone can coach a sport … the challenge is coaching young people. Parsons is excited to promote his sports here in Camrose.

Augustana Campus and the Camrose Ski Club possess the resources to develop a major centre for Nordic skiing in Canada. In this, he is supported by the quality and enthusiasm of volunteer ski and biathlon coaches. Parsons is equally impressed with volunteer leaders of the Camrose Ski Club executive, who have developed one of the best ski, cycling and walking trail systems in Canada … ”right in our own backyard!” Parsons hopes that more people in our Camrose region will realize how extremely fortunate they are to experience the beautiful forest trails along the Stoney Creek Valley. “We offer the opportunity for cross-country skiers to pursue a lifetime sport,” says Parsons, “beginning with our Jackrabbits Learn to Ski Program for children or our Junior Vikings XC Ski Team. Skiers can continue on to ski with the Augustana Vikings Team – to compete at the World University Games – or to ski with our Adults Masters XC Ski Team.” Parsons is busy recruiting in the Camrose region to introduce young athletes and their families to cross-country skiing. His focus this fall is to recruit junior high school and

high school athletes, who train and compete in summer sports such as cross-country running, soccer, swimming, triathlon, road biking, mountain biking, rowing or any other endurance sports. Les coaches all of these sports as part of his year-round multisport training program. He also welcomes any winter sport athletes who have stopped competing in hockey, ringette, figure skating or any other team sports or individual sports. He is targeting young athletes who live in the Camrose region of Wetaskiwin, Leduc, Vegreville, Wainwright, Stettler and Ponoka. Younger athletes in elementary school are welcome to join the Jackrabbit Learn to Ski Program for children. This fall, Parsons is coaching alongside the Augustana Vikings Cross-Country Running Team, coached by Gerhard Lotz and Robert Renman. Young athletes who like or are interested in cross country running are welcome to join us and train at the same time as our university athletes. Families of athletes who are interested in trying cross country skiing are welcome to contact Coach Les Parsons at Augustana: 780-691-6912 or les.

Olson looking out for new agriculture markets By Dan Jensen

The Alberta government is placing more emphasis on developing new markets for agricultural products outside Canada says Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Verlyn Olson. "Market development is something that we are passionate about," said Olson in a speech to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce last Wednesday. "We are determined to make things happen. We have to have more than the Americans as our market." Olson said two major markets the province is targeting right now are China and India, both of which have growing middle classes with more disposable income. "They are demanding higher quality food with more proteins and we have what they want." The government is also stressing the need to do more value added processing to products so that those products can be sold for a higher value before they leave the province. "We are hoping to see more announcements of food upgrading and food processing in rural Alberta," said Olson. "People now have more opportunity to value add and have a little bit more control over it." Olson recounted a conversation with a southern Alberta farmer this past summer who

explained that if agriculture did the same amount of upgrading as the oil industry does with bitumin, the province would be laughing. "Agriculture is incredibly important for us. It is incredibly important for a community like Camrose and this region." Olson said he has had his eyes opened, since becoming Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, to the number of positive things that Alberta businesses are doing with Alberta food. He said a plant owned by a cooperative of Co-op farmers in Diamond City, not far away from Lethbridge, is producing and exporting Yoplait cheese and yogurt products, while a Cargill Meat plant at Stony Plain is producing every single hamburger patty sold by McDonald's Restaurants in Canada. He also made reference to a person who is operating from the food development facility incubator at Leduc who is selling "dumpling or perogy type of food" that has been adapted for the North American market. "They were about to move out of the incubator because they were building a new 30,000 square foot factory of their own in South Edmonton. They are already in grocery stores in Alberta but their ultimate goal is to sell into China. It is a Chinese company using Alberta products to make items to ship back to China." Olson agreed with Alberta

Treasury Branch chief economist Todd Hirsch, who told caucus that the next ten years will be the golden age of agriculture. "In Alberta agriculture is the second largest industry and it is our largest renewable resource industry," he said. "We have incredible potential because there are about seven billion people in the world now and that number is growing very quickly. Within about ten years there will only be about six countries in the world that will be net exporters of food, and Canada is one of them. And Alberta is a huge player on that scene." Olson said that one of the jobs that was given to him by the premier when he was named Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development after the election was to increase the profile of agriculture. He explained to the Chamber that he is always talking to his caucus colleagues about what is happening in agriculture. "I find that out in Alberta we are talking about how important agriculture is and we all talk about how important rural development is, but we are preaching to the choir because we all already understand that. It is the eighty-five per cent of Albertans who don't live in an agriculture setting who have to have this message brought home to them. I am

trying to get my colleagues out to rural Alberta as much as possible and we are finding we are getting a good response to that." Olson said while there has been concern with E. Coli in food over the last couple of weeks, Albertans need to place that concern into a historical context and understand that, according to information provided by Alberta Health, the number of E. Coli incidents has been steadily dropping. "In the last five years we have had an average of about 80 cases a year and that is not strictly related to beef or meat. That could be from lettuce or strawberries or sprouts, all kinds of different foods that are not properly washed or properly cooked. Prior to that it was upwards of 200 and in 2011 it was 77. So far this year it is 67. There is lots of good work that has been done and is still being done, but 67 is too many as well. We all know one is too many if you are the one who is sick." Olson said the government will be spending more money on food safety, environmental stewardship, biosecurity and water over the next few years, and, as part of the Growing Forward II initiative, will be placing a greater focus on research and innovation. "One thing that has become clear very quickly is that agri-

culture is highly complex, highly sophisticated, and it is absolutely crucial that we are very strong in our research and development of new crops and seeds, and are making more sophisticated processes for the processing of foods." Olson said the government will be having to make a decision on a replacement for the $100 million Rural Alberta Development Fund. "There are going to be a discussion on what comes next but there are programs in this community and many communities around the province that have benefitted from funding from RADF. The idea there was to develop innovative programs that support businesses and communities. It wasn't about building buildings and what not and it wasn't about funding things that everybody already does. It was about innovative new ideas that could be used as a model for other parts of the province." Olson said the government is counting on advice from a next generation advisory committee on how to engage people who want to stay on or go to the farm. "The average age of farmers is continuing to rise, and that is a very significant issue when you think about the growing demand for food in the world. A question one has to ask is who is going to be providing that (food)."

New Ford Escape raises bar By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Ford Escape at Lamb Ford Sales in Camrose is proof you can make a good thing better. "It raises the bar with 11 new exclusive features and fuel economy projected to top any vehicle of its kind on the market today," said Lamb Ford Sales sales consultant Craig Beddoes. Ford calls the new Escape the "smarter utility vehicle" because it offers the strengths that customers value – fuel economy, versatility and new technology that makes driving and living with the vehicle easier and more fun – all wrapped into a sleek, more modern design. "Ford understands that more people every year are looking at vehicles like Escape, and we want to give them even more reasons to buy," said Raj Nair, group vice president, Global Product Development. Ford Escape's new EcoBoost technology combines twin independent variable camshift timing, turbocharging and direction injection to let you get plenty of power out of every drop of fuel. The 1.6 litre EcoBoost fourcylinder uses just 9.1 litres per 100 km in the city and 6.0 litres per 100 on the highway. The 2.0 litre EcoBoost four cylinder uses just 9.5 litres per 100 km in the city and 6.7 litres per 100 km on the highway while delivering 240 horsepower and 270 lb.ft. of torque. The 2.0 litre easily enables Escape to tow up to 1,588 kg when properly equipped. The standard engine is an updated 2.5 litre with 168 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission with Sport Mode. The Escape can make itself more aerodynamic and fuel efficient with its class-exclusive active grille shutters. When closed, they help to reduce vehicle drag caused by air travelling through the engine compartment.

Torque Vectoring Control seamlessly enhances hold on the road, while electric power-assisted steering enables pull-drift compensation to help correct for road irregularities and improve overall steering feel. More space

The spacious all-new Ford Escape features more hip room, more second-row leg room and more rear cargo room than ever before. Heated front seats are standard on SE, SEL and Titanium for extra comfort when it is cool outside. A variety of environmentally-friendly materials are used throughout, including recycled plastic bottles that go into the carpeting. Scrap cotton from jeans, sweaters, T-shirts and the like are used in the sound absorption material. Plus, the vehicle itself is over 85 per cent recyclable after it has been driven its last kilometre. Escape also offers up to 1,920 litres of cargo space and a class-exclusive hands-free liftgate. Simply move your foot under the rear bumper in a gentle kicking motion while the intelligent Access key fob stays tucked away in your pocket or purse. Sensors detect your leg and the motion, triggering the liftgate to open. The same action triggers it to close. Keeps you connected

No more searching for your phone. No device in your ear.

Once paired, voice-activated Ford SYNC recognizes your phone and automatically transfers your contacts to support voice calling. It also plays music from your phone, MP3, USB or iPod. Just touch a button on the steering wheel and say things like "Call: John at work," or "Play playlist:roadtrip." SYNC also includes 911 assist with GPS location reporting. SYNC with MyFord Touch includes a class-exclusive eightinch LCD touch screen, an LCD screen in the gauge cluster, fiveway controls on the steering wheel, and a media hub with class-exclusive dual USB ports. Upgrade to the Navigation System for interactive maps you can zoom and scroll – complete with 3D landmarks. Choose Eco Route on the voice-guided turn-by-turn directions for a recommendation on the most fuel efficient way to travel. With SiriusXM Satellite Radio you can listen to your favourites all across Canada. Your six-month prepaid subscription gets you the best in audio entertainment, including 100 per cent commercial-free music from every genre, world-class news, sports, comedy and entertainment. Intelligent 4WD

Escape with Intelligent 4WD is always ready for adventure. Assessing conditions about 20

times faster than the blink of an eye, the system readjusts as needed to deliver the right blend of handling and traction at all times. It's beneficial in all weather conditions, and provides excellent off-road traction. Plus, it has already proven itself in challenging test environments around the globe. Class-exclusive active park assist is part of a comprehensive Parking Technology Package, which also includes a class-exclusive Forward Sensing System, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, a rear view camera and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Just press a button and listen for active park assist to alert you when it has located an appropriate parallel parking spot. Then, take your hands off the wheel and Escape will literally steer itself into place. You simply follow system prompts to shift gears and control the brake and acceleration pedals. BLIS with cross-traffic alert is designed to scan for vehicles approaching from either side as you slowly back out of a parking spot or driveway. If any are detected, the system alerts you with a chime, a message centre warning and an amber light in the corresponding sideview mirror. While you're driving, BLIS uses the same amber lights to

Craig Beddoes

alert you if traffic is detected in your blind spots. The rear view camera also shows you what is behind the vehicle whenever you are in reverse. Its built-in distance guide and dotted centre line really come in handy when you need to hook up a trailer. Curve Control – the latest enhancement to Ford's AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, standard on every new Escape – can help slow the vehicle by as much as 16 km/h in approximately one second. Curve Control is effective on dry or wet pavement and is particularly useful on highway off ramps. Trailer sway control, included with the Class II Trailer Tow Package, monitors the motion of the vehicle and detects trailer sway. If needed, it reduces engine speed and selectively applies the brakes to help you maintain control of both the vehicle and the trailer. You can see the 2013 Ford Escape at Lamb Ford Sales, 3771-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2411 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Fall Car Care Guide…


Winter tires need to be maintained As the fall months make their way toward winter, drivers

everywhere rush to put on their winter tires and proceed to forget about them until it’s time to remove them again in the spring. But that’s only avoiding the harsh reality of winter. When a part is defective in the winter months, you have to go straight to your mechanic because it’s just too cold to do your own repairs in the winter! What do defective parts have to do with installing winter tires? A lot. Tires are often one of the first accessories to experience problems. That means they, too, require regular maintenance, just like summer tires do. Naturally, the air pressure has to be regularly checked; in fact, you should visually inspect your tires on a daily basis. This recommendation is particularly important if you don’t drive your car every day. In some cases, a soft-rubber tire combined with an aluminum rim can lead to air loss due to the metal contracting as a result of the cold. In this case, it’s a good idea to visit a repair shop and have the tire reinstalled for a more secure fit. This is a great time to have the air valve checked, too.

"To provide an environment which allows our people to deliver the best possible product and experience to our customers."

If you notice that one of your tires is starting to wear out prematurely, it’s time to have your tires balanced. While you’re there, the technician will also check the vehicle’s steering to ensure it is in good condition. If any parts are worn out, he’ll probably recommend

that you change them both to save your tires and for your own safety. He’ll also recommend aligning your tires to prevent premature wear and tear. After all the money you’ve spent on these four pieces of rubber, it only makes sense to take good care of them.

How you can safely motor in a winter wonderland It's just a matter of time before the weather takes a turn for the worse. And there’s nothing more frustrating than being caught off guard when the temperature does take a dive and we’re shovelling ourselves out from under our first real snowfall. The first real signs of winter can catch a lot of people off guard. But if you keep your vehicle properly maintained, plug it in and follow some simple winter driving rules, it could save you the hassle of a weather-related collision or a break down. Get Ready: The key to winter motoring is “be prepared.” If you haven’t done it already, prepare your vehicle for the cold weather by checking your block heater, battery, belts and hoses, topping

up with winter grade fluids, properly inflating your tires and checking the pressure monthly. Warm it Up: Remember to “plug it in.” We don’t install block heaters in our vehicles in Alberta for nothing. Once the temperature dips below -13°C you should plug in your vehicle. You only need to plug it in a few hours prior to driving, so if you’re concerned about energy costs, get a timer. What to Pack: Carry a winter survival kit and a cell phone with you in case of emergencies. Your kit should include extra warm clothing including gloves and a hat, a blanket, flash light and batteries, booster cables, waterproof matches, an emergency candle, snow shovel, ice scraper,

traction aids (like kitty litter), non-perishable food items, water, a rope and flares. Before you Go: Before you head out, make sure your vehicle is clear of any snow and ice and you have good visibility. It’s also a good idea to check weather and road conditions. Environment Canada issues warnings of weather conditions through the local weather office and you can check winter driving conditions by visiting: reports Behind the Wheel: Getting a handle on winter driving conditions can be a little tricky but there’s a few things you can do to prevent losing control: · Give yourself more time to get to where you’re going.

· Limit distractions behind the wheel and focus on driving. · Reduce your speed in accordance with the road and weather conditions. · Leave yourself a bigger buffer between you and the vehicle in front of you. For dry conditions your following distance should be three to four seconds; in slippery conditions you need eight. · Drive with your lights on for better visibility. · Watch for ice at intersections and brake before the ice. · Take care to brake properly, use threshold braking; put pressure on the brakes to the point just before they lock up.

Your auto fluid replacement schedule (MS) -- Do you know how to check motor oil levels? Are you aware of what type of water to use to top off a car battery? Could it be time to add washer fluid? If you’ve answered “no” or you aren’t sure about any of these questions, it might be in your best interest to learn the basics of car maintenance, which includes maintaining fluid levels to keep your car operating optimally. Otherwise you could be unnecessarily spending extra at the nearest service station. There are a few areas of attention on a vehicle that require periodic checking and refilling of automotive fluids. These fluids include oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, washer fluid, and coolant. The key is knowing how often the fluids should be refilled or changed. 1. Motor oil: The overall consensus is that oil should be changed every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first. Cars that are used less frequently may be able to go 6,000 miles between oil changes. However, if you notice performance issues, such as sluggish acceleration, it could be time for an oil change. 2. Transmission fluid: Most transmission breakdowns are traced back to poor transmission maintenance. Therefore, stay on top of transmission fluid. This should be topped off whenever needed, and actually flushed and replaced once a year for optimal performance. 3. Coolant: Because engine components have become more compact to save space and weight, cars actually run hotter than they used to. This means that maintaining the cooling system is imperative. Change coolant annually, preferably before large fluctuations in weather temperature. 4. Washer fluid: This fluid is expended often, so it should be checked regularly and replaced whenever the level seems low. 5. Brake fluid: This is probably the most ignored fluid in the car, and the most important. Brake fluid is not petroleumbased, so it can absorb moisture from the air, which diminishes its effectiveness and lowers braking performance. Check this fluid with every oil change to make sure levels are adequate. Brake fluid should be replaced every two to three years so that sludge does not build up. 6. Power steering fluid: This should be checked twice a year and topped off whenever necessary. 7. Car battery: If your battery is an unsealed variety it will need water to operate correctly. The cells on the top of the battery can be opened to check the water levels; use only distilled water to bring up the levels.

Forego frosty frustration (MS) – Properly preparing your car for winter is simple and doesn’t require a lot of time or technical expertise. The payback in reduced risk of a preventable breakdown and improved performance is well worth the minimal effort. According to the experts, “cold weather will only make existing problems worse.” Here are a few items that are easy and simple to check before fall turns to winter: First, familiarize yourself with your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer's recommended service schedules. No one knows your car better than the company that manufactured it. Motor oil: The easiest way to protect and improve the performance of your car is to upgrade to a high-performance synthetic motor oil and change it regularly. Synthetic motor oils have better low temperature fluidity and a lower coefficient of friction than mineral-based motor oils. This will help ensure easier start-ups on cold weather days. Some motor oils are actually formulated with molecules that chemically bond with engine components for continuous engine protection. It’s also been proven in independent tests to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and increase horsepower and torque. Tires: Worn tires can be extremely dangerous on rain, snow and ice. Examine tires for remaining tread life and uneven wearing. Be sure to check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks as well. All season radials or winter tires are a wise investment for those who must drive in inclement weather regularly. Tire pressure should be checked once a month and tires rotated as recommended. Don’t forget to check your spare and be sure the jack functions properly. Cooling System: It may be time for a flush and refill if it’s been more than a couple of years since the coolant has been changed. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is usually recommended. Additionally, the condition of hoses should be checked for cracks and leaks. Windshield Wipers: Check the condition of your wiper blades and replace them if needed. If your climate is harsh, purchase rubber-clad, winter blades to fight ice build-up. Stock up on winter-formula windshield washer solvent. You’ll be surprised by how much you use. If you don’t have an ice-scraper, buy one before you need it. Battery: A dead battery can make a cold winter morning a miserable one. If your battery is beyond its recommended service life, replace it. Top any low battery cells with distilled water. Clean and tighten battery terminals to ensure electricity gets from the batter to the starter on chilly fall mornings. If corrosion is present, clean it with a mixture of baking soda and water, and put on a set of battery washers to keep corrosion from coming back. Make sure the battery terminals and hold downs are tight. It’s also good to clean and lubricate hinges and the hood latch. Fuel: It’s important to keep gas lines from freezing in cold weather. No vehicle can run if it can’t get fuel. A full gas tank will help prevent moisture and ice from forming. Particularly cold weather may warrant using a fuel deicer to prevent fuel lines from freezing. A block heater is another option that is fairly inexpensive and easy to use.

Easy tips to help you conserve fuel Whether due to the struggling economy or an increased desire to live a more environmentally-conscious life, many of the nation's drivers are exploring ways in which they can conserve fuel. While riding a bicycle to work or taking public transportation are both reliable means to conserving fuel, there are many other ways to do so as well. * Don't accelerate too quickly. Accelerating too quickly from a dead stop taxes the engine and requires more fuel as a result. * Don't overfill the gas tank. When filling your tank,

stop once you hear the first click at the pump. Overfilling will simply lead to spillover. * Empty the trunk. It might be convenient to keep your golf clubs in the trunk, but that excess weight could be forcing your engine to work harder and use more fuel as a result. * Close the windows when driving at higher speeds. When the windows are open at high speeds, that added air drag is reducing your vehicle's fuel efficiency substantially. * Don't idle too long in the mornings to "warm up" the vehicle. In general, a vehicle

does not need more than 60 seconds of warming up to be able to operate efficiently. * Don't rev the engine like you're driving a race car. Revving the engine needlessly wastes fuel and can even lead to engine damage. * Maintain your vehicle. Older filters make it harder for an engine to run at maximum efficiency, so stick to the recommended maintenance schedule. * Keep tires properly inflated. Poorly inflated tires lead to drag that makes the engine work harder and use more fuel.

(MS) — Maintaining a vehicle can be akin to maintaining one’s body. If you keep up with an exercise routine for yourself, those sessions at the gym get easier with each day. However, if you lag behind in your workouts or don’t work out at all, the sessions get harder and your body is worse for the wear. Such is the case with your car as well. Keeping up with regular maintenance of your vehicle can add years to its life, not to mention dollars to its resale value. Ignoring the little things, however, can prove both damaging and expensive. Fortunately, the small tasks you need to do for your car won’t leave you feeling as taxed as the sit-ups and push-ups you need to do to keep your body running smoothly. • Replace your air filter. This is one of the more commonly overlooked maintenance tips for keeping a vehicle running smoothly. Replacing the air filter is both easy and very beneficial to your car. The air filter’s job is to stop contaminants from getting into the engine. This can include dust and leaves. If enough debris gets into your air filter, the engine won’t be able to suck enough air into its combustion chambers, causing the car to run roughly and frequently lose power. In highly neglected cases, cars will stop running entirely. Most vehicle manuals will recommend changing the air filter at certain designated mileage intervals. For people who drive in heavy stop-and-go traffic or frequent dirt roads, it’s a good idea to cut those mileage recommendations in half. • Stick to your oil-change schedule. Routinely going past the mileage recommendations for oil changes will eventually and inevitably lead you down a road no one wants to go down: the major repair road. Oil changes are inexpensive and typically take less than 30 minutes to do (if you don’t do them yourself). Over the years, the mileage recommendations for oil changes have fluctuated. The standard used to be every 3,000 miles. However, newer cars can often add a couple thousand miles onto that number. Factors such as age, how the car is used, how the driver drives and other arbitrary factors can greatly influence how badly your car needs an oil change. Vehicle manuals may recommend a change as few as every 3,000 miles or as many as every 10,000 miles. In general, if your car is newer, every 5,000 miles should be safe and good for your car. Whatever schedule you go

Now is the time to check your car's antifreeeze

Winter is a tough season for just about any vehicle. It’s even tougher for older cars and trucks that need more maintenance. Consequently, these vehicles require more special attention before the cold season and on many levels. One of them is not only engine coolant levels but also its efficiency at protecting the engine when the mercury drops well below freezing. As is the case for so many liquids and car components, today’s coolants are much better than they used to be. However, they still need to be checked at least once a year by a specialist (who will also take a look at the whole cooling system including hoses and fittings.) Most antifreeze manufacturers recommend a mixture of 50% water and 50% antifreeze in the radiator. Although it might not be that easy to measure each one exactly, it’s better to have the liquid analyzed by your mechanic after a few years. Adding water once in a while to the radiator can dilute the antifreeze to a point where it is not as efficient as expected in intense cold. On the other hand, if you’ve had to add a lot of water to your coolant system, there might be a leak somewhere. Have your mechanic check your engine and its cooling system before adding more liquid. It could only require some minor repairs.

CAFCL Charity Auction at CRE this Saturday By Dan Jensen

The Journey will be the theme of the 2012 Camrose Association for Community Living Charity Auction at the Camrose Regional Exhibition Oct. 13. "The theme reflects our fifty year journey as an organization," said Camrose Association for Community Living executive director Esther McDonald. "The parents who started this organization fifty years ago believed that people could learn and be independent, and over the years that has truly proven to be the case. Many of them live on their own or with limited amount of support, and many hold down jobs." CAFCL's Charity Auction has a two-fold purpose: to raise funds for priority programming for the individuals CAFCL services, and to raise awareness in the community about the programs and services that CAFCL offers, including, but not limited to, the Kandu Summer Camp, Respite Program, Rose Club, Teaching Independence and Parent Support and the School Education program. Teaching Independence and Parent Support (TIPS) is a preventive program that works with young pregnant women to prevent disabilities like Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), while Kandu Summer Camp is an inclusive camp for children seven to seventeen with special health and developmental concerns. "It is not a segregated camp," said McDonald. "We have people attend who do not have disabilities." The CAFCL Charity Auction has typically been able to raise $50,000 after expenses. "We have always enjoyed strong support from the community," said McDonald. "We're sold out for this auction and have a waiting list of people wanting tickets." Items that will be auc-

Featured in the photo are CAFCL board director Cam Parker (left) and Brent McIndoe, Solutions Team Player representing Andrukow Group Solutions, Camrose.

Harberg Nikiforuk Wood Chartered Accountants has donated a one-week stay in a condo at Napa Valley, San Francisco, Phoenix/ Scottsdale, Las Vegas, the big island of Hawaii, Kaui, of Bighorn Meadows Resort in Radium, as well as $1,000 towards airfare, to CAFCL for auction at the Charity Auction this weekend.

to become CAFCL), as well as a pie and jewellery made by CAFCL clients. "Our clients have talents and skills and they are donating back to the cause," said McDonald. Returning to the Charity Auction again this year will be a marketplace with home-made items, and popular popcorn prizes. Rev. Brian Hunter will serve as master of ceremonies. "Rev. Hunter has been a long-time supporter of CAFCL who has, over his years as minister and chaplain, provided many services to our clients, staff and organization," said McDonald. The Charity Auction has always been an opportunity for CAFCL to show donors and contributors where their money is making a difference. More information on giving opportunities is available from CAFCL by calling 780-672-0257.

EMCO Corporation has donated an American Standard three-ton air conditioning unit (condenser, coil and line set) for a 2,500 square foot home to the CAFCL Charity Auction. The donation also includes full installation on a prepared site. Another prize, compliments of D. Bruce Pound Certified Financial Planner and J.D.P. Wasserman & Associates, is a three-nights, four-days stay at Rodgers Fishing Lodge near Campbell River, to be used in the 2012 fishing season.

"We have more than $28,000 in sponsorships already," said McDonald. The auction will also feature wood art made by Rickey Burgess, son of the late Bob and Erna Burgess, who founded the Burgess School (later

CAFCL celebrating The Journey in 2012 Submitted

Fifty years ago, a small group of parents got together to discuss a common interest. Each of these parents had a child with a developmental disability who was not in an educational system. At that time, children with a developmental disability were not allowed to attend ‘regular’ school. In response to the identified need, this group of parents got together to share ideas and organize a school for their children to attend. As a result of their efforts, the Camrose and District Association for Retarded Children (CDARC) was officially formed on June 4, 1962. In 1965, The Burgess School was built. It was the first of its kind in rural Alberta (In 1999 the City of Camrose declared this building a community Historical Resource.) We renamed ourselves the Camrose Association for the Mentally Handicapped in 1982.

In 1986, The Burgess School closed when integration into the public school system became a reality. The Burgess Building then became the office space of the now named Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL). And now in 2012, there are 110 employees and CAFCL served over 406 individuals last year in Camrose and East Central Alberta. Currently we provide services to: people with acquired brain injuries; families at risk; families and children with special health or developmental disabilities; and adults with disabilities. CAFCL runs a wide variety of programs: TIPS (Teaching Independence and Parent Support) program – a preventive program that seeks to support families

"We cannot help but be grateful for the success and progress that has been achieved. All of this was instigated by a small group of parents who had passion and a vision, and has made us what we are today." through education and home visits; PCAP (Parent Child Assistance Program) program for families with a history of substance and alcohol abuse; Family respite program for children with special health and developmental concerns where parents can have a break and children can have fun; Sibshops – a program for siblings of children with special

health or developmental concerns; Kandu camp, an inclusive summer camp for children ages 7-17; Residential services for adults with disabilities – this is where up to five people live together in a residence and have staff support / caregivers to help them with daily living; currently we have 10 residences; Outreach services for adults with disabilities as well as people with acquired brain injuries; Rose Club – a social recreational club run by its members; MORE (Meaningful Options for Role Enhancement) day program – which helps individuals participate in meaningful activities (like volunteer work, fitness, art, music, job placements, etc.) in the community; Education/Sexuality program; Self Advocacy – where we

teach individuals skills so they can speak up; Community Kitchens; Clients as Trainers – individuals with a disability provide staff training on topics like informed consent, ethical touch, client rights, etc. This year, 2012, marks our 50th year as a community organization, serving vulnerable and often overlooked citizens. Looking back over the past 50 years and how life has changed for the people we serve, we cannot help but be grateful for the success and progress that has been achieved. All of this was instigated by a small group of parents who had passion and a vision, and has made us what we are today. What a journey! “Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” – Alex Noble.

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.

groups and routes assigned. It works much faster if we have a driver and two people collecting the food." The volunteers will be collecting until about noon and then meeting back at the Food Bank. "We will need a few people to help us unload all of the food items when we are done." Dave asks that unloading volunteers meet at the Food Bank to bring the food into the building. "We need people weighting, sorting and helping unload," said Dave.

"We collected about 6,000 pounds of food last year. We chose this time of year because harvest is done and the shelves are depleted in the fall. We want to collect more this year," added Dave. "We are collecting all nonperishable items for the Food Bank. We are not accepting monitory donations and we ask that people go directly to the Food Bank if they want to make a cash donation."

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans football team accomplished two feats in one game on Oct. 4. CCHS unleashed its offence in a 42-34 victory over the Ponoka Broncs to give them both a win and a playoff berth at the same time. The Trojans came out pumped and built up a 13-0 lead in the first quarter before the Broncs started riding hard to make a comeback. On a frosty night, the Camrose offence provided the spark to lift the team's confidence. "Our offence finally clicked and started rolling. They had a good first half. The offence is more talented than what they showed in the last four games, it was time for them to show us and themselves what they can do," said coach Adam Belanger. "Our defence relaxed a little in the second quarter, but the guys came through like champions." The Trojans scored on the first drive of the contest. "Everyone was dialed up and ready to go. They all knew the implications of this game and they really wanted it," said Adam. "The winner advances to the playoffs and loser doesn't. That (Ponoka) is one heck of a football team and you have to hand it to them. This is their first year in 12-man football league. They have talent and they wanted it as much as we did." Adam admitted he didn't know what to expect from the Broncs. "They played a good game and showed a good offence. I didn't expect 42-34, but at the end of the day that is the way it ended." The veteran players on the Trojans stepped up and showed leadership when the team needed it the most. "Dilshant Garcha played like a warrior, Skyler Rambeau played hard and Tim Carberry stepped up for us when Corson Clarkson couldn't play because of an injury," explained Adam. "Our passing game came through for us and our receivers made some good catches." "We started the season not executing. We were not clicking on all cylinders, so it was good to see everyone come together and play well," said coach Adam Belanger. "This will give everyone more confidence as we head into the playoffs. It shows we can play with any team in this league. I knew it as a coach, but now the players know it. That's huge, you can't put a price on that and I can't ask for anything more." CCHS finishes the regular season in Stettler with an Oct. 11 game against the Wildcats. "It's a hard road for us. Stettler is the defending Tier 3 provincial champion," said Adam. "We will play a tough team in the first round of the playoffs. We will see how things shake out and take it from there."

Kodiaks knocked out of first place By Murray Green

For the second straight game the second period was a disaster for the Camrose Kodiaks in a 6-3 loss. Camrose played even with the Calgary Canucks in the first as the teams exchanged two goals each. Cam Gotaas and Luc Vandale, on a power play opportunity, scored for the Kodiaks. The third period was also even with Tanner MacMaster scoring before the Canucks added another tally. However, Calgary scored three goals in the second with no reply from the Kodiaks; that was the difference in the game. The Canucks outshot the Kodiaks 15-8 in the period. Camrose out worked their opponent in the first and third periods to have the advantage in shots, 36-26. Matt Gibney stopped 9 of 13 shots before giving way to Devin McDonald who turned aside 11 of 13 shots. A bad second period by the

Camrose Kodiaks was the break the Sherwood Park Crusaders were looking for to gain the edge in a close 3-2 contest on Sept. 29. The Camrose Kodiaks dropped both games in the Alberta Junior Hockey League showcase weekend in Spruce Grove. Camrose started the scoring in the contest on a Nolan Marshall tally early in the opening frame with help from Luc Vandale and Brett Njaa. However a Sherwood Park shorthanded marker in the middle of period sent the Kodiaks back on their heals. Garth Wallin notched both of the Crusader goals in the second with help from linemates Stefan Bazar and Sean MacTavish. Camrose were out shot 13-5. The Kodiaks came out growling in the third by outshooting the Crusaders 15-5. But, it was only defenceman Josh Smith that could get the puck over the red line.

Kodiaks' goalie Matt Gibney stopped 34 of 37 shots fired his way. Camrose was blanked 3-0 by the Whitecourt Wolverines on Sept. 27. The testy Wolverines knocked Camrose off its game by playing a chippy style. The Kodiaks failed to score in six power play opportunities, which led to the downfall. It wasn't for a lack of trying. Camrose outshot Whitecourt 40-27, but Wolverines netminder Tanner Kovacs was the difference. Rookie goalie Devin McDonald stopped 24 of 27 shots for the Kodiaks. The six losses in a row have left the Kodiaks in second place, behind the unbeaten Brooks squad. Camrose hosts the Okotoks Oilers on Oct. 11, Drumheller Dragons on Oct. 13 and the Brooks Bandits on Oct. 14. The first two games are at 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena, while the Bandits match begins at 2 p.m.

Meals on Wheels success based on helpers By Murray Green

Over the past 41 years, the Meals on Wheels program has been providing food for seniors, shut-ins and people who need extra help with a healthy diet. Meals on Wheels provides approximately 30 meals a day during the week and between 15 and 20 a day on weekends, every day of the year within Camrose. The yearly commitment takes around 230 dedicated volunteer drivers to make the program a success. Camrose and District Support Services director Maria Lobreau is in charge of ensuring the program runs smoothly. "We need between six and 10 volunteers every day for the delivery of the meals. We have church groups, businesses and other volunteers take a weekly turn," explained Maria. "I would like to add five more groups to alleviate some of the load for the church groups. The churches do a lot for us." Each weekly group appoints a coordinator who pairs two volunteers to deliver the meals. The more volunteers each group has, the fewer stops they each have to make during the lunch hour. "We take the orders from clients for the meals at the office and pass the information to the coordinator," said Maria. "Some groups, like businesses, deliver

twice a year. Church groups tend to deliver four times." Each group gives up its lunch hour for the week. Drivers arrive at 11:15 a.m. and the meals are ready by 11:30 a.m. and delivered by about 12:30 p.m. "We are asking volunteers to extend their lunch to help us. It is good for a business to volunteer because people can leave together and work together. It is a good way to contribute to the community," said Maria. "It is not just about delivering a meal. It gives people an opportunity to provide social contact to clients who may be in isolation. I had to help a lady out of her garden and up the front stairs because she left her walker in the house. Sometimes you are helping people, which allows them to stay in their homes longer and it gives them some independence. It gives them the assurance that someone cares about them." The meal is welcomed in each house because it gives the client a healthy lunch without a lot of work. "The healthy meals are prepared at Rosehaven. A client can receive the regular meal of the day, or specially prepared food to meet his or her diet," Maria said. "Members of the kitchen staff here at Rosehaven are phenomenal because they adjust the meals for clients." Frozen meals are also available by contacting the office. "This is a great service for those

who would like a second meal of the day. People can pick them up and store them in the freezer for when they need them," said Maria. "Family members are welcome to phone us to order meals or have it billed to them. Often, we have family members from out of town phoning us because they are concerned about their parents eating well. This service assures that they receive at least one healthy meal a day." Meals on Wheels is also a safety check. "Every day a driver knocks on the door and delivers a meal and makes sure they are alright. If the client doesn't answer the door, we take steps to check on them. It provides a good safety check for family members who may not stop in every day." Maria can also arrange home support services. "We have staff that go into the home and help with cleaning and light housekeeping. We can help with some light chores that the person can no longer do. Sometimes it is doing the dishes or washing the floor. We have four staff members that do that. Right now we have 30 clients." The home support service can be adjusted with weekly or monthly visits. "We have a lot of people who like to live independently, but they need a little extra support to keep them in their own homes," said Maria. "We can help them with that."
